    Our best group ever. Juventus should be the only opposition and top spot might be a shot this time around.


    Dundee utd got a awful draw with Real Madrid, Udinese and Dortmund. Celtic are better off and got Chelsea, Zenit & Rapid Wien. Big things are expected in the Europa League where Hibs, St Mirren and Rangers are all in groups they can get through


  2. September


    The perfect start to the season goes on
    Even in Europe where we win our toughest challenge by winning 1-0 in Turin

    SPL
    We have a 6 point lead after only 8 games. Dundee Utd lost again but look stronger than celtic and much stronger than Rangers who have only won half there games. St Mirren make another shocking start as do Dunfermline uncomfortably far away from there usual 8th place.

    A draw with Dundee put a end to our amazing run but was worth it to have beaten Rangers 6-1. Dundee Utd next up 7 points back while Motherwell break into the top 4 passing the embarrassing Celtic who havent even won half there games. At the other end a team who were in the Europa League final 10 seasons ago are bottom of the SPL

    I have found out about this thread a few days ago and I just could not stop reading. I have read every single post and I am now pretty sure this is the best thread I have ever read in my entire life!

    By the way, I love your appreciation for Czech players, as I am myself from Czech Republic. And allow me a small correction, Slovan Liberec is not from Slovakia, but from Czech Republic (you have played against them in CL qual. many seasons ago)

    And I have to ask, typing "there" instead of "their" and "loose" instead of "lose" is a part of Scottish typing accent?

    SPL - Winners
    Scottish Cup - Quarter Final
    Scottish League Cup - Runner Ups
    Champions League - Runner Ups


    We retain the SPL title while having by far our best European season. The opposite to last season we were miles ahead then stuttered in the second half of the season as European games took our attention. Our amazing run to the Champions League final were helped by staggering wins against Celtic & PSG. The Final against Man Utd was just beyond us although we were always in the fight. In the domestic cups we fell out of two cups in March as the side was stretched to its limits.






    SPL Review




    Aberdeen - 9/10 Great league season if you forget March & April. Europe was amazing but the Scottish cup exits were both a bit lame in effort but forgivable as we look back.


    Dundee Utd - 7/10 Fought there way back into the title race but for the second season in a row they stumbled at the finishing line. Poor cup form and a shamefull exit in Europe to PAOK were there great undoing. Striker Cristian Baldomar returned from a injury plagued season to lead the team in goals and assists


    Celtic - 6/10 Went neck and neck with Rangers through most of the season regularly tied on points. Good run in Europe too only being knocked out by the dons. Wingers Asger Pedersen & Akeem Ikechukwu were the stars.


    Rangers - 7/10 A Cup double saved there season and a return to the Champions League at the group phase. Front three of Simonini, Eder & Alvarez led the team. Shameful European effort going out in the group phase of the Europa League.


    Hearts - 7/10 Back in the top 6 after being relegated just a few years ago


    Motherwell - 7/10 Like Hearts a stunning return to the top 6 after relegation heart break. Best bunch of loan players from Monaco so far helped there cause with 2 of there best players coming in on loan.


    St Mirren - 5/10 Dropped back out of the top 6 and were no where near it the whole season. Zenit thrashed them 6-1 in the Europa League last 32.


    Hibs - 5/10 Joined St Mirren in the drop down to the bottom half. A tough group in the Europa League but still no reason for ending bottom.


    Inverness CT - 4/10 1st season back in the top flight and during the run in they never looked in danger. Perfect 1st season back


    Dunfermline - 4/10 Recovered in the last 2 months just when they were looking in there worst and sneaked night out of relegation danger.


    Dundee - 4/10 Poor run in left them in the playoffs but they comfortably won the playoff against Hamilton thanks to 33 goal strike force Tony McMillan & Paul Madden


    Ross County - 3/10 Late season meltdown left County dropping into the relegation then being left sunk at the bottom of the league.

    Rangers sell a few and make the biggest move by buying a 19 year old.





  32. February


    A perfect month of results which usually included a big scoreline on our part. Thrashed Rangers 4-1 & in the Champions we beat Furth 6-0 in Germany giving the kids a shot in the 2nd leg

    One hand is on the title as we move 19 points clear at the top. 4 points split Dundee Utd, Rangers & Celtic fighting for 2nd. Anyones game for the 5th & 6th, While Inverness look doomed for bottom spot while St Mirren and Dunfermline battle for 11th.





  33. March


    Title was won in mid March as the other teams continue to falter. We finally have a good prospect coming through the youth team. We finished the job in the Champions League. All this in a perfect month needless to say.

    So the title is in the bag and its kids all the way in the SPL. Dundee Utd have a grip on 2nd as Rangers and Celtic fall behind but still split by 1 point. Hearts lock in a top 6 spot while 1 of Motherwell, Hibs or Forfar will take the final spot. Inverness are all but gone while St Mirren have a lot of work to do to get out of the play offs.

    Champions League last 16

  34. April


    Ajax were dispatched late on in the 2nd leg and we hold the lead over Bilbao in the Semi's. In the Scottish Cup Semi Final we beat Rangers 3-1 and will play Celtic in the Final. Only 1 win for the kids in the SPL

    We lost the first leg in Holland but fought back to dominate the second leg but it took till the 85th minute for Magath to put us ahead and in the Semi Finals. In the Semi Finals we draw Bilbao while the top two sides over the past decade Man Utd & Tottenham play in the other Semi

    We twaddled to 97 points, shame we couldnt get the 100 but bigger battles lie ahead. Top 6 stay in the same order as Dundee fell into the play off zone with all other sides out playing them.

  37. Season 26 Review


    Aberdeen's treble completes there rise from 4th in the Scottish game to the top of the European game and at a perfect time just days before my birthday AKA FM15 day i felt it was time to step down as manager. Well kind of. I'll be taking a "Director of Football" style role where i will holiday through the season but still have full control of the transfers and team selection ect. Due to this updates will change to 6 monthly. I hope to keep this going for a decade or so to see these youngsters through there career

    SPL - Winners

    Scottish League Cup - Semi Final
    Champions League - Winners


    Didnt take the league cup Semi Finals defeat as seriously at the time as it looks now. It could have been a perfect season with 4 trophys from 4. Still i wont complain about dominating the SPL. Winning the Scottish Cup beating both the Old Firm on the way then beating the dominating side of the current era in Man Utd in the Champions League final






    SPL Review


    Aberdeen moved on from winning the title last year to dominate the league this season.
    Dundee Utd had a good run to the Champions League Quarter Finals but poor back in Scotland.
    Rangers move up to the automatic Champions League position to go with there run to the Europa League last 32. Celtic won the League Cup to make up for 4th place and a Champions League last 16 run. Hearts retained 5th spot getting closer to the top 4. Motherwell also kept there place in the top 6. Hibs ended just outside the top 6 very little between them & Motherwell. Dunfermline are back in there favorite 8th place. St Mirren's awful form goes on for another year but 9th which was about there best position for the season.. Forfar were unlucky to end up in 10th after almost sneaking into the top 6. Dundee were another side unlucky to fall down the table after challenging for the top 6 but comfortably saw off Berwick in the play off. Inverness The highland side really stunk this year and deserve to go back to the Championship and are replaced by highland rivals Ross County

    A great year for Scottish Football. Aberdeen are up to 4th in Europe. Dundee Utd also moving up to 6th. Celtic improve to 12th, Rangers drop well down to 21st while St Mirren just stay in the top 50 at 50th. Hibs 62nd and Hearts 74th look to make a big step into the top 50.




  38. Looking forward to what you have planned for FM15. Is it going to be nearly the same as what you have done here?
