  1. STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!



    My 3rd Story with the Dandy Dons
    Can we finally win the big one?

    Background
    I've been a Aberdeen fan all my life, 2nd favourite team behind Man Utd. First team i saw playing live in person back in 1999, our worst season ever in the league although through the hard times i did learn a valuable lesson

    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-ebbe.jpg



    Me + Aberdeen = FM heartbreak


    1st try FM2009
    Broke became 3rd force with a good squad in 3rd season before giving up

    2nd try FM2010
    7 seasons, 4 SPL titles Europe - CL QF lost to Barcelona 2-0 on agg and a Uefa Cup
    Aberdeen = Scotlands new force in 16 team SPL



    So onto this story!

    In every edition of FM i try and do a Aberdeen save and ever year i feel it gets harder but having not done one with FM2012 i feel its only right i jump right in here for FM2013 so will be learning the game as i go having only spent a season with Spurs so far tactic testing.




    Manager's Ambitions
    My dream is to win the Champions Leauge with Aberdeen thats target NO1!. Yeah so that may take a while so to start with i'd take European place and the chance to test out my squad and try some bargain youths from around the world. SPL title by 2015 would be nice but as its my first save in the game anything can happen!


    Shall get the game underway tomorrow hope you all enjoy and i hope i can bring much needed success from this ever failing team.

    Should have added that to my aims! because there is nothing sweeter than beating your friends!


  5. Aberdeen FC
    The hometown hero
    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-2012-13-squad.jpg




    Stewart Milne
    Mr Tightpockets, Our chairman
    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-stewart-milne.jpg



    "Desperate times call for desperate measures! The clubs finances are not in a good way, We want and need a new stadium and its approaching 2 decades without silverware i believe Mr. Donald is the man to change our fortunes"



    This was chairman Stewart Milne's response to the media backlash at the news of ex Scotland boss Craig Browns departure from the team right at the beginning of the new season. Aberdeen had invested enough time and money into his failed tenure and fresh youthful approach of Donald was enough to convince the fans that all is not lost!




    Press - Where do you see Aberdeen going this season
    "Aberdeens main target for the season is to return to European football and significantly improve on three bottom half finishes in a row" Donald is determined to reward the clubs patient fans with some silverware but warns "Rome was not built in one day however i was not on that particular job" - Thanks Mr Clough


    Press - Have you been promised money to work with and was that a key incentive?
    "I've been told we have to sell before we by so valuable players or guys on big wages may not enjoy a future here if we can get better value for money"


    Press - Archie Knox has called of retirement plans to help guide you into your first job
    "Im over the moon. Archie was here and helped to build the best Aberdeen team in history and having him here to hopefully do it again is beyond a dream"




    Thanks for the questions but now i will leave to complete my backroom team and have a look what we can do in the transfer market to put the dons back on track to being great again!




    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-target_logo.svg.png
    SPL - Top 4 finish
    Scottish Cup - Quarter Final
    League Cup - Back up and youthful team will play here so no targets




    Media puts the pressure on right away by predicting 3rd so no room for errors here!


  6. Good luck on my save Aberdeen won the league first season and are second atm only know cause I'm subscribed to hibs who finished 5th

  10. Season Preview
    2012/13
    A preview from poverty


    Transfers
    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-transfers.png

    We'll start with the bad news. The transfer window was a utter disaster. Couldn't get any players of the quality i wanted in for full transfer or loan! At least there's most of August to try and get some more players in. Overall im happy with the depth, despite a lot of that being youth players so im only buying quality


    In
    Only signing was midfielder Jay Fulton from Falkirk. Still waiting and hoping several free players drop there price soon
    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-fulton.png

    Out
    Again nothing major. Back up players Paton, Magennis and Low all say goodbye with the worst of the youth team


    Top transfers 2012 so far
    M Fellaini - Man City - £21m
    C Tiote - Spurs - £19.5m
    C Ansaldi - Spurs - £19.5m
    L Baines - Man Utd - £17m
    Sandro - Man City - £16.5m
    H Ben Arfa - Chelsea - £12.75m
    D Costa - Spurs - £12m
    S Mandanda - Man Utd - £11.25m
    V Wanyama - Benfica - £9m
    J Enrique - Arsenal - £9m


    Aberdeen 1st team 2012
    STAND FREE WHEREVER YOU MAY BE - And you thought Celtic beating Barca was something!-2012-squad.png
    Tactics for anyone familure with my 2012 storys is almost identical. Made the midfielders a bit more defensive than before with this game seemingly a bit more leaky. Tried a few other formations but this seems to be the one for me


    Stand out youths

    3 in 2 out. Club legend John McMaster and youth coach Neil Simpson are out! Alastair Stevenson, Jason Hastings and scout Willie Melville arrive with another coaching space waiting to be filled as well as a head of youth development to come in
