    The Return of Aitor Herrera - The Boss of Bilbao



    Hello - I thought I would do the first part of the introduction to this story tonight before I actually get my copy of FM13 on Friday. This part will be about God himself Aitor Herrera who will be the manager of Bilbao. I would link it in to the story of his achievements but it wouldnt work as I played my Bilbao save in FM12 to the year 2034!!!!

    Now if you are new to this site or just don't know who Aitor Herrera is then shame on you! lol. Basically I got this regen in the first season at the age of 15 and he was still with me at the age of 38 when I accidentally lost the save. He was the greatest regen I have ever had and ever will have so there!

    Arguably his greatest achievement was somehow being named in the Sky Sports News website as a real life player for Athletic Bilbao (they have sorted it now)

    Here is a screenie of him in his prime -

    And here is a breakdown of his Bilbao career -

    TOTAL 911 372 571 177 137 5 7.64

    For Spain he won 256 caps and scored 71 goals also.

    As you can see he did quite well! Quite disappointed he didnt get 1,000 games but he was rested or injured and missed about 15-20 games per season. I would list the trophies he won but it would take forever but here is the story link - if you have a spare week or so give it a read lol -
    Basque-ing in Bilbao

    ----------------------------------------------------

    I will write this story with any reference to Aitor referring to Aitor in FM12 so to speak however he won about 100 trophies with Bilbao while in this story I will want to match that at least and obviously Bilbao havent won nearly that amount. It sounds wierd and complicated I know but bear with me! lol

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    My dream of this story is this - I want a regen to come through the youth intake with Herrera as a surname and him being good enough for the first team - that would be the ultimate and would give the story an extra twist!

    Obviously the main aim is to topple the top two in Spain blah, blah, blah but I did that in FM12 eventually but the one thing I didnt do in my FM12 save was have a season with a 100% record in every competition. I was unbeaten at home for something like 8 years and was unbeaten in the league for umpteen years but never had the perfect season.

    Finally I am aware that I have an unhealthy addiction to a regen player and I make no apologies for that! lol

    I hope you will enjoy the story and follow!!!!!!!!

  2. I like that you are doing a story in the memory of the greatest regan that most of us have seen. There's only one Aitor Herrera!

  3. unfortunately I can understand you quite well as I have a similar addiction to my San Marino striker from FM12

    not sure I could commit to a long term save if ME stays like this (demo looked soooooo not ready), good luck though

    Get what you're saying about the ME, defending is soooo dodgy. Hopefully it gets sorted out

    I never watch the games, not even the highlights or any of the goals so I will be blissfully ignorant of any such horrors that happen! lol

    Trying to formulate a team/tactic in my head with the players that are already there but cant really as I dont know how good they are. Some will get a boost I expect from FM12(Susaeta, de Marcos, Muniain) but not having Javi Martinez is a blow.

    Will Benat be a poor man's Xavi again this year and be good enough to sign? Will Ruffier be as good? And will there be any decent 16y/o players to sign right at the start (like Vadillo in FM12)?

    Oh, I can get behind the obsession for that regen. I still remember Juan Pablo Sánchez Moya from my FM10's Burgos story. He didn't look too great, but he had loads of pace and destroyed more than one defence and getting vital goals in more than one season. His goals got us ascension and avoided relegations. He was class. Some months ago I reinstalled FM10 to resume that game but I had deleted the savegame and had no backup, damn!.

  7. Looking forward to being able to read one of your stories from the beginning.. it took me a while last month but I read through your Castel Di Sangro (if that's not how you spell it, you know what I mean, lol) story and was hooked on it, I'm sure this new save will be just as good to follow.
