    So I just got relegated in the last game, by a goal in the 81st minute, that was missing until it hit one my defenders in the back and went in. Then I got sacked.... Not that unusual except I literally signed a new contract 3 weeks ago.

    So 8 games to go and after another good result (3-0 against Newcastle) I have climbed to 16th. My next match could be very important. I play Crystal Palace and they are in 17th, 2 pts behind me, beating them would make staying up look more likely than hopeful. I have also signed for next season an African regen. I think his name is trablesi but I'll confirm next post. Anyways central defender with very good stats for a 20 y.o. Only had to pay 625k compensation for him but he has got a 15 million release clause in his contract so his agent thinks he is pretty good. He has already been capped for Tunisia so work permit was granted. @Midfielder some of your tips on the finer details of managing have been very helpful. Though hard to prove since I re did also my squads statuses they are not coming to me whinging so much. Well worth the effort.

    So I've been playing all day and now have 10 games to go in the season. I have had some good results and have got myself to 17th. 2 points clear of 18th and in my last match I beat Tottenham 1-0, so starting to turn out some decent results against the top teams. The Mrs and kids were home this morning and have been bugging me for a kitten so I finally caved under the proviso that I play FM all day undisturbed. So a litter furry critter is about to enter my house, so I'll be taking a break to check it out. Hopefully get the go ahead to push on and finish the season. I'm quietly confident that I can stay up now and improve on this team. Just need the doc to open his wallet a bit.

    I play more of a 4-1-2-3 DM wide. I have just got myself into 17th after a couple of wins in my last 3 games. 2 clean sheets in those wins but then just shipped 6 against arsenal. However it was 2-2 in the 65th and I was going for it. So I'm scoring goals and look decent in attack but yeah I have always been plagued with shipping goals for fun. Hence why I have decided to go attacking. if I'm going down in this save I'm going down swinging.

    I'm 38 in 4 weeks, you don't know how comforting is to know that I'm not the only one who is going to be still playing when they retire. In fact its one of the main reasons I look forward to retirement.

    I did get offered the Inter job last night, probably should've taken it. I've always been a 1 club per save kinda guy though.

    I'm playing a 4-1-2-2-1. Lol Micah is on loan at rangers with me paying all his wages. Last 3 games night Lost 1-0 to Leeds who were bottom Beat Chelsea 1-0 who were 4th Lost to Leicester 3-0 who were 13th Went to bed before I went insane.

    Hey MF are you really 37? I only ask because that's how old I am. Thought I might have been up there in the oldest people still playing FM

    Next 3 games West ham (A) 2 nil down at half time finished 2-2 Manu (H) 1-1 HT 2-2 FT. Dominated the team who are top. Bournemouth (A) 2 nil down at half time finished 2-2 This is very frustrating to say the least. I'm on 13 pts, 17th is on 16 pts

    I couldn't help myself I went into my villa save. I've played 3 games and they pretty much sum things up. 1st game. Southampton (9th) H. Down 0-2 at half time but a few tweaks and I manage a 2-2 dominated the last 15 minutes a could've won the match 2nd game. Middlesborough (17th) A. Being away I played cagey as I definitely didn't want to give away the points easily to them. Tight match 0-0. 3rd game. Watford (9th) H. Dominate the first 35 minutes they score on the counter. Get myself back into the match at 1-1 in the 60th. Start to dominate again, one of my players gets red carded. They go on to score in the 80th and 85th. I had 23 shots 12 on target 2 clear chances and 4 half chances and score 1 goal. Now I have west ham (5th) and manu (1st). All 3 games I played reasonably well I feel and made changes that seemed to work but can't win a game for any money. Despite playing well morale is still low and I have 2 really tough matches coming up. I wasn't as bad off as I posted earlier so currently I'm in 19th on 10 points and 17th has 13 points but I just don't see how I can make ground.

    Alright I'm going to keep my villa save for another day. I know what I do wrong u get lazy and rush a bit, lose form then rush more. I'm going to take on board some of the advice and pay a bit more attention to detail..... Take to long to explain the reasons but I'm picking between Deportiva La Coruna or Sampdoria.
  12. Football Manager 2017

    Hey @Midfielder I'm back home and in a hour or two when the kids are fed I'm going to have one massive fm17 sesh. Want anyone who reads this opinion ..... Do I start again or try and rescue my villa save? From memory its about 12 games into the season I have 7 points and I'm bottom but 17th is on about 14 points. I like my team but morale couldn't be lower and I'm have absolutely no luck in games of late.

    Jumping reach has always confused me. You get a player that is 6f 4 and has a jumping reach of 8. What the?
  14. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I have to work with a couple of those.
  15. Villa fans harassing two people on a train

    Gotta say kudos to the fella for riding it out probably the best thing he could've done. I on the other would've opened my big mouth and got the crap kicked out of me. Hopefully that's the last time him or his girlfriend have to go through anything like that.
