    Never, ever would Bayern have 40 points right now & in your first season finish so far behind you? this has happened relatively similar to myLFC save with the "premiership elite".
    I 100% agree with you. I was almost happy last season for Bayern to win the league, because if they continued their form from season 1 then the save might have been a bit dull. Dortmund have improved a lot this season, but even at their improvement they lost 6-0 away to Atletico in the last 16 of the Champions League, which I just think isn't likely.

    We rested a lot of first team players in a game I was confident of winning and we delivered. Not much to say, for the last half hour they had a breather and retained the ball. Leroy Sane played left back and delivered two assists in his best performance of a pretty dreadful season from our new signing.

    BAYER LEVERKUSEN ARE THROUGH TO THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SEMI FINALS




    A special European night in Leverkusen. Local lad and club vice-captain Benjamin Henrichs scores his first goal of the season at the most pivotal time to give us the victory. Our game management over the two legs was executed to perfection, I asked a job of the players that I knew could win over 180 minutes and they delivered. The tie could have slipped through our fingers as Leno made two point blank saves from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, that's why he's my number 1. Brilliant from everyone involved.

    I don't want to say I was hoping for a specific team, but to avoid Barcelona was very pleasing. Juventus will be a monumental task for us to overcome. We believe.

    An incredibly difficult game to manage as it came right in between a Champions League quarter final second leg and a German Cup semi final. Truthfully, we were second best at everything and Bayern ran out deserved winners. Joachim Low is 1-0 up against me.

    Absolutely superb win. Truthfully, I prioritised the other two competitions ahead of this one, but I am delighted to be in the final. We were holding on at the end, but Hakan Calhanoglu is quickly becoming our big game player. Another German Cup final beckons for us.

    The first leg at home to Juventus was up after this game, so a lot of players were rested. Kevin Volland has really stepped up his game in the second part of the season and gives me a selection dilemma - him or Mandzukic or do I risk both?

    Oh my god. Can we start dreaming? Mario Mandzukic scores two against his former club (whom tried to resign him in January) as we put one foot in the final of the Champions League. Tactically, this was the most interesting game I've played this FM, with Max Allegri changing formation 3 times, from a 5-1-2-2 to a 4-1-2-3 and then finally a 4-3-3 with three strikers. Every change we had an answer to and I couldn't be more delighted with the result and for Mario Mandzukic as he proves Juventus were wrong to sell him. Fairytale story for the fans.

    I started this story by telling the tale of Bayer Neverkusen, who were in the exact same position as us and left trophyless. We simply cannot allow that to happen now. Closing out the Bundesliga is essential and I think we should have the legs to do it.

    Two very difficult away games to Hoffenheim and Monchengladbach. 4 points from our remaining 3 games would see us lift the Bundesliga, but Dortmund have no European distractions to worry about. The game against Juventus is the biggest in this story so far, by far and I have to think of a way to stop Juventus' attack and specifically, Paulo Dybala.



  3. awesome season so far, good luck with the finish.

    nice budget for next year also, should be able to get a couple of 1st teamers if you wish, or about 90% of gareth bale

    Thanks everyone! I think I'm going to focus mainly on keeping the core of the first team rather than sign any new players. We've got some fantastic youth prospects coming through and I think they deserve a chance.

    Pulisic has been a bit of a flop if I'm honest. He's not started many games but has came on as a sub quite regularly, but isn't showing me much. Hopefully he improves next season or I may look to loan him out.

    Yeah I think losing Firmino probably adds to the story, I think not signing a big money replacement benefits it too. Mario is a monster mate, he's unreal in the air but even with his feet he's devastating. He was scoring roughly a goal every 100 minutes at Juventus, but wasn't getting many first team opportunities.

    We've got one hand on the Bundesliga. I rested a number of players due to the away leg of the semi against Juventus being up next and the boys that came in delivered. Kevin Volland scored a worldie from 30 yards into the top corner against his former club to surely seal the Bundesliga for us. This is the area that has set this team apart to my team of the previous two seasons - we have good backups in each position. We've almost wrapped it up, lets just make sure of it in the next league game against Hannover.

    My scouts inform me in their report that Juve are likely to play a 4-3-3 with 3 clear strikers, I know that I have to address this. Playing our conventional 4-2-3-1 or even our counter attacking 4-1-2-3 will simply leave us outnumbered 2 vs 3 with our centre backs and their strikers. I decide to train the boys into a counter attacking 3-3-2-2, with each centre back picking up a striker and Lars Bender sitting in front of the defence as the spare man with Kampl and De Bruyne doing the dirty work in closing down.


    Kick off




    5th minute:

    Simone Zaza misses a good chance for Juventus. Dybala whips a ball to the back post that Higuain heads back towards the 6 yard box, but Zaza can't convert the header as it loops just over the bar.




    20th minute:

    Dybala takes a corner into the box but it's cleared by Kampl and Dragovic chases the loose ball and dribbles towards the half way line. He's dispossessed by Lemina whom plays a through ball through our unorganised defence to Zaza who's one on one with Leno, but Jonathan Tah makes up at least 10 yards on Zaza to put pressure on him and Zaza drags his effort wide. A scare for Leverkusen.




    24th minute:



    GOAL



    Mario Lemina dribbles around our 18 yard line and lays it off to Sami Khedira who blasts home with his left foot from 20 yards out. A great goal and the momentum swings towards Juventus. We still lead 2-1 on aggregate.





    Half Time:

    Half time arrives and it couldn't have come any quicker. We've been on the back foot and Juventus are stretching our defence. Our defence is staying solid and compact, but they have so many players that can produce a moment of magic. Let's hope we can hold on.





    63rd minute:


    Kevin Kampl has an opportunity to put a ball into the box around 40 yards out but it doesn't clear the first man and Higuain breaks away at our defence, 2 vs 3. He slips through Dybala who can't convert as his shot goes over from 20 yards. A lapse in concentration from us.




    67th minute:


    Paulo Dybala crosses it in from wide but Christensen heads clear for us. Bonucci picks up and finds Digne wide who whips in a sensational cross to LemINAAAAA! The ball comes crashing off the bar as Leverkusen hold on by the skin on their teeth.




    70th minute:




    GOAL




    Henrichs has the ball wide right and plays it into Kampl, Lemina goes to pressure but Kampl spins him and plays the ball to Mandzukic whom peels off Bonucci. He lfits his head and spots the run of Julian Brandt, Mandzukic slips him through with his left foot and Brandt takes a touch past Rugani and puts it passed Sels in the Juventus goal, 1-1!! Could that be the goal that sees us make the final?!




    86th minute:


    Kampl drives through the Juventus midfield and unleashes a powerful show that Sels holds onto well. Still 1-1 on the night. Juventus look depleted.




    91st minute:


    The referee blows for full time, Bayer Leverkusen are in the final of the Champions League!!

    We respected Bayern's recent form and the fact that they missed out on a Champions League place will have them fired up for this match. We sacrificed an attacking midfielder for the more defensive minded Lars Bender.







    Kick Off






    8th Minute:
    Kevin Kampl dispossesses David Alaba around the half way line and played through Atakan Akkaynak whom runs in one on one against Manuel Neuer, but hits it straight at him and it goes out for a corner. Huge early chance for us.






    13th minute:






    GOAL






    Marco Reus passes a free kick to Kingsley Coman who has a go from 20 yards and takes a massive deflection off of Lars Bender and goes past Bern Leno. 1-0 Bayern.






    15th minute:






    GOAL







    Julian Brandt beats Alaba wide and crosses into Mandzukic who heads for goal but Neuer makes a good stop to deny him. Jerome Boateng clears it but Akkaynak heads back into the danger area and Kevin Kampl places it past Manuel Neuer. Game on, 1-1.






    36th minute:







    GOAL






    Huge mistake by David Alaba as he tries to dribble it out from the back but Brandt takes the ball off him and a 1 vs 1 against Neuer beckons. Boateng comes over to cover and close the angle but Brandt unleashes a thunderbolt into the top corner of the net to give us the lead. What a goal, 2-1 Leverkusen!






    45th minute:





    De Bruyne whips in a corner, Tah flicks on and Christensen nods the ball against the post!






    47th minute:






    GOAL







    Marcos Reus floats a ball into the box and Muller heads it down for Boateng to flick home just before half time. A huge blow.










    Half time


    Bayern Munich 2-2 Bayer Leverkusen


    A greta game for the neutral, a heartache for me. We've been creating good opportunities on the counter but Bayern are dominating the ball and the shots. At this point, it's anyones game.










    64th minute:





    Alaba whips in an early ball into the backpost for LewanDOWSKIIIIII!! So close from the Bayern man as it rebounds off the post and Christensen beats the Polish hitman to the rebound. We're on the ropes.






    90th minute:





    The game is still tied with both teams looking towards extra time. Substitute Kevin Volland dribbles from left to right across the Bayern defence around 25 yards as the Bayern defence trail him. Atakan Akkaynak makes a bursting run from midfield and is beckoning in on goal if Volland can find him. He can, Volland slides a pass through as it comes to AkkAYNAAAAAAAK!!!! Pandemonium in the stand, as Atakan Akkaynak powers the ball home from 20 yards past Manuel Neuer and runs to the fans! Leverkusen have done surely done it!!!












    Full Time:


    Bayern Munich 2-3 Bayer Leverkusen

    We've had the more conventional route to the final, having not lost a game the whole campaign. Barcelona have tested their luck a few times, none more so than against City in the semi final.

    Barca have huge selection issues. The greatest player to play the game, Lionel Messi is out injured, Jordi Alba misses the game, Serge Aurier is suspended, Sergio Busquets is out and Gerard Pique is also out. We’ve got to stick to our guns. For the away legs against United and Juventus we sat back and soaked up pressure looking to avoid defeat, but here in the final, I feel like we owe it to ourselves to take the game to Barcelona. Both teams are going 4-2-3-1, and I trust my team to prove they’re a better side than Barcelona. Vermaelen is a weak point for them and I'm looking to exploit him.



    ************************************************** *****************************************











    Kick Off












    11th Minute:








    GOAL








    Neymar cuts inside from the left wing and finds Luis Suarez, he holds off Andreas Christensen and plays a back heel into the onrushing Gelson Martins who is one on one with Bernd Leno and slides the ball under him. Disaster of a start. 1-0 Barcelona.

    36th minute:














    GOAL












    Ivan Rakitic whips in a corner and Neymar of all people wins the flick on at the near post. Bern leno dives to save but is caught in Luis Suarez’s path and can only palm the ball out towards Thomas Vermaelen who tucks it away from a couple of yards. 2-0 Barcelona, our dreams are fading before our eyes.

    45th minute:










    Brandt has the beating of Juan Bernat all day. He knocks the ball past the Spaniard and crosses it towards Mario Mandzukic. He takes a touch out of his feet, drags the ball back and managed to get a shot away from 8 yards but Ter Stegen swings an arm at it to keep it out. Our best chance of the half.


























    Half time




    Bayer Leverkusen 0-2 Barcelona




    Barca have been a class above us so far. Their counter is ripping us to pieces and something has to change. We push to attacking and aggressively tell the players to show some passion for the fans. There’s 45 minutes left of the season, we need to make sure we leave everything out on the pitch and if that’s not good enough then we tried. Barcelona take off the injured Juan Bernat and replace him with Pablo Zabaleta.




















    49th minute:










    Hakan Calhanoglu has been poor and is replaced by Kevin Volland. Still no sign of a breakthrough.












    71st minute:










    All is looking lost for us here. The frustrated Leroy Sane is substituted on for Mario Mandzukic whom had a poor game. Sane and Brandt will go wide wide De Bruyne playing off of Volland. We push to Overload and will throw everything we’ve got left at them.
















    73rd minute:












    GOAL












    Brandt takes a short free kick from 30 yards out to Akkaynak who floats in a direct ball into the box. Ter Stegen comes charging out and Kevin De Bruyne beats Samuel Umtiti to the header and loops the ball over Ter Stegen. We’re back in the game, 2-1, come on!!

    76th minute:














    Rafinha is replaced by Oscar as Barcelona drop to a 4-3-3 with the intention of hitting us on the counter. Less than 15 minutes to go.
















    84th minute:














    Hojberg is brought on for Akkaynak since he is the last semi-attacking player we have left on the bench. We’re now throwing the kitchen sink at them, balls are getting lumped into the box but Barca are first to everything.














    85th minute:


























    GOAL




























    KEVIN KAMPLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SLOVENIAN SCORES AN ABSOLUTE SCREAMER FROM 30 YARDS INTO THE TOP CORNER OFF OF THE CROSS BAR, WHAT A GOAL, WHAT A MOMENT! 2-2, WE’RE BACK IN IT.

    86th minute:












    Gelson Martins the scorer of the first goal is replaced by Andre Gomes. Barca acknowledge the momentum is fully in our favour and try halt our advances.












    87th minute:


















    HUGE CHANCE. Oscar switches the ball to Neymar who gets in behind our defence, he’s clear one on one with Bernd Leno who comes rushing out and decides to try tackle Neymar. The ball ricochets against the Brazilian and is heading for goal! Jonathan Tah sprints back and clears the ball about a foot away from crossing the line, unbelievable from both Tah and Leno. We hold on, still 2-2.

    93rd minute:






    The referee blows for full time, that’s it for 90 minutes. We’ve came back from the dead to take the game to extra time, but even at that, Neymar was inches away from winning the Champions League for Barcelona. The players don’t need a pep talk, they know what they need to do. The players have virtually nothing left in their legs after this their 54th game of the season. This next 30 minutes won’t be about footballing ability, but by mental strength.




    Full Time:




    Bayern Munich 2-2 Bayer Leverkusen
















    Extra Time


















    94th minute:




















    GOAL






















    LEROY SANEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! THE FORGOTTEN MAN OF THE LEVERKUSEN TEAM SCORES HIS FIRST GOAL FOR THE CLUB IN THE BIGGEST OF STAGES TO GIVE LEVERKUSEN THE LEAD!!!


    De Bruyne switches the ball wide to Benji Henrichs and crosses into Sane who peels off his man and volleys it with his left foot into the bottom corner. 3-2 Leverkusen, reality is sinking in.

    105th minute:
















    Andre Gomes has to come off injured and Barca have no subs left to replace him. They now chase the game with just 10 men.




















    Half Time in extra time:






    Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 Barcelona









    I cannot believe this. We’re 15 minutes away. We cannot blow this now, we’ve worked so hard to get to this stage. We must keep it tight.




























    Full Time A.E.T







    Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 Barcelona

  15. Absolute scenes!!

    What a read this story is mate, really looking forward to see If you can repeat this glorious season!!

  16. Thanks for the likes and support on this story everyone, much appreciated!


    I'm not going to lie to you all - I'm not seeing much point in continuing this story much further. The big goal that I set for the series has been completed and I'm deliberating whether it's worth continuing to write about. I've played into January of next season and still really enjoying the save, just unsure of whether or not to keep writing about it.


    If you want, let me know if you guys would like me to keep you updated with an update every few days or just give a seasonal update.


    Again, thanks for the support everyone!

    Seconded

  19. Would love to see you carry on with this mate, have really enjoyed it!

  20. Why not continuing the save with a new team in a new league ? Try with Napoli or Sevilla for example. Good team with strong roster. Try to win ECL with them in order to test yourself ha ha !!
