    As expected we have been completely dominant on the domestic front, with just a single draw tainting an otherwise perfect record. The majority of these games have been decided through the instant result as they are becoming increasingly pointless to control as we just have no real competition. Christiansen has already blitzed our goalscoring record for a season and am expecting him to get around 60 come the end of the season across all competitions.

    I have hit my 400th game landmark and am quickly baring down on my half millennium (if thats the right phrase to use). A new 2 year extension has also been made with Carmarthen, as I continue to help the club develop on the global scene.

    The clubs facilities continue to improve through the European prize money, although still have a way to go to match the top teams. I keep pressing for a new stadium, as would be nice to be able to play our European matches at our actual stadium but the fan base just isn't there on a weekly basis to justify it. Our average League attendance is just 376 (12 % capacity)

  2. Hello to everyone who is still following this story,

    I have started a number of stories on FM16 and struggled to really get into a save (with the exception of this one of course). As there are only a few months remaining until the new FM release I want to give one last new story a go to run alongside this one.

    I have barely done any top flight management on FM16 and would like to win the BPL at least once on this years game, so was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on a good Championship/Lower Premier League side to start with? I will be using the Official Winter Update and will possibly make it into another story on here if people would be interested but if not just a save to crack on with in my own spare time.

    Thanks for continuing to read this story and any suggestions you may have

  3. I've never seen anybody try a save with Birmingham on here, finances are poor I know being a Bluenose, but I'm sure with your incredible talent for FM you'd be able to turn the Blues into a powerhouse!

  5. This has been a fantastic story, i'd love to see where you can get welsh football in the next few seasons. i think bringing a historically big team (leeds, wolves, forest, ipswich) back to glory would be a good one.

  6. Thanks for the good suggestions guys .

    Have never managed any of those teams on FM before so would all be an interesting last challenge. As I can decide I will set up a poll with those suggestions and go from there (also going to add Fulham to the list).

    Thanks in advance to anyone that votes! ( I am to indecisive to choose for myself!)

  7. I voted for Forest (it's a team that won two Champions League, the Sky Bet Championship is not tbe place where it should be), I wish I could have given negative votes to Birmingham City though (Aston Villa supporter here) ^^

    You've done a magnificent job both with the Old Gold and the Welsh national team and I'm sure that regardless of what team you choose in the end, you're gonna achieve greatness with them.
    Be sure to give us a holler when you choose your squad and you start your new challenge in order to drop by.

    Well I am a Leicester fan, so not overly keen on managing Forest either haha.

    Thanks mate - I will probably make the new save into another story on here and play the remainder of FM16 between the two, so am you will be able to stay up to date on my progress

    Despite a really good home leg performance we couldn't finish our chances and paid the price of some clinical Milan finishing. We dominated possession in the game, creating 3 clear cut chances in the process but unfortunately our Danish record goalscorer, Christiansen never really turned up. To his credit, Alex Meret was in decent form in the Milan net but we really should have scored at least one goal. We now have to travel to the San Siro with the near impossible task of scoring at least 2 goals to no reply.

    Inevitably Milan were even more ruthless in front of there home crowd and looked much more convincing as they pt another 3 past us. Again, we squandered a couple of clear cut chances and failed to get on the scoresheet for a second time. Despite the 5-0 aggregate scoreline we really didn't look out of our depth as the scoreline doesn't reflect the true competitiveness of the two games. Ultimately they just had that extra bit more quality in front of goal.

    I decided to splash a bit of cash on German midfielder, Moussa Ibrahim. He looks to be a quality player and at the age of just 20 has years to develop further. Hopefully he can prove to be a useful addition to the side.

    I spotted Paul Dummett on the free transfer list and immediately put offered him a contract. He has a vast amount of experience and is still a regular in my Welsh squad so was a bit of no brainer. At the age of 31 he still has a couple of good seasons in him as we need to build a defence capable of keeping out the likes of Inter and Man Utd.


    Thank you to everybody that voted, I have now ceased the poll with the intention of getting underway tonight. It was a closely fought poll in the end, but after 27 votes Crystal Palace just edged it.
