    Started a save with Heerenveen in Holland, done really well with them in the 2013 version. Going in blind here practically. I'll keep things simple, a 442 attacking formation. Lets see how things go.

    First meeting with the lads to introduce myself, it ended with the full squad being angry with me. And then we got pumped of some frog outfit Sochaux 4 nil. * it, it's only pre season am sure the players will put a shift in when the season starts.

    Narrowly won the League with 94 points to Rangers' 90. Had a good record against the majority, but Rangers beat me in 4/6 derbies which isn't great. Just couldn't find something that worked against them.

    Rangers were awarded 19 penalties during the season, 7 more than any other side.

    January of season 3 and top of the league, although not played that many league games due to the Qatar WC.

    Beat Rangers 4-1 in League Cup final, and won our CL group. Our reward is a last 16 tie with Barca!

    No transfers in or out in Jan

    Anyone else finding work permits to be a pain in the hole this year?

    Aye it makes it really tough to sign the players you usually would for Celtic - young guys from the more obscure leagues. Basically need to get all your wonderkids in the first window!

    Makes it very difficult to have foreign home grown players which screws up the european registration.

    Had a boy Natan on loan from Flamengo for 2 seasons, no issues. 3rd season deal wrapped up and the work permit is rejected. Annoying.

    Any of you played the xbox version of this? Thinking of getting it for my son and looking to find out if it's a lot different/worse than the pc version.

    Season 3 was another good one, although would have liked to have gone a bit further in the CL.

    We beat Barca 3-2 on agg in the last 16 before being handed a tie against the team who knocked us out last year - Man Utd. They’d added Neymar and Haaland to their ranks, and comfortably beat us 6-2 on agg. Winning the CL with Celtic in FM21 isn’t going to be easy!

    Some very impressive performers again this season, with most of our attacking players chipping in with plenty of goals and assists:

    Again not a great deal planned for the Summer transfer window. Rabello wants to go so will try and shift him and bring in someone younger. Bain is only really useful for Euro squad registration so will look to bring in a keeper who can challenge Livakovic. Attacking wise we are set - would maybe add some back-up but doubt we can improve on our starters too much.

    The priority this window is left back. Gallardo is approaching 30 and starting to decline. If we can shift him then I may splash out on a big signing who will sort us out long term.

    Pretty good less league to pick from pick upto five but still has all the data coefficient built in
    I would suggest to push ls in to activate cursor to make it much better to play

    Season 4 Summer transfer window done.


    Outs:


    Igor Rabello - Man City - £10m

    Jesus Gallardo - Burnley - £8m


    Ins:


    Nuno Mendes - Sporting Lisbon - £33m

    Denys Popov - Dynamo Kyiv - £15m

    Eddie Nketiah - Free

    Paul Bernardoni - Free


    Said we’d maybe need to spend big to get a quality left back and we certainly did that! He looks immense, our new left back for the rest of the save.


    Popov looks like a steal at that price. Nketiah and Bernardoni brought into provide quality back-up.


    Our squad is now looking incredibly strong.


    GK - Livakovic, Bernardoni, Bain


    CB - Onguene, Ajer, Badiashille, Popov


    Fullbacks - Frimpong, Mendes, Muldur, Taylor


    CM - Koopmeiners, Ugarte, McGregor, Turnbull, Chukwuani


    Wingers/Attacking mids - Almada, Barrow, Neres, Tsygankov, Bergwijn, Dembele, Fischer


    ST - Edouard, Daka, Nketiah


    In the CL we’ve been drawn with PSG, Sevilla and Zagreb.

    Started a save unemployed last night.

    Got offered the Stoke job in December after they sacked Michael O’Neill with the club sitting bottom of the league.

    The remainder of the season was a nightmare. Hugely over bloated squad that would not respond to praise, nor belittling. All they did was moan about the position and moan about my team talks. That wee * Joe Allen was the instigator of it all, fairly confident he was sabotaging my team during matches too!

    anyway, brought in a couple of youngsters from the reserves, pretty much got pumped every game defence shocking, 2 games left of the season managed to draw the second last one then board threatening to sack me if I lost last game and got relegated. Ended up beating 5th placed Notting Forest 0-1 at their ground to stay up. Delighted

    Almost a full squad clear out, replaced with bowman signings (managed to save up £3m from player sales and spinner it on Joe Aribo lol).

    10 games into new season unbeaten sitting 3rd in league playing beautiful free flowing fitba - Ross Stewart from Ross County banging them in for me, what a guy!

    Loving this game, however it’s taking me ages to get scout reports in.

    I do scout a lot, particularly guys from under 19-21 national teams and so they are already fairly unknown, but I’m in December and guys I scouted at the start of the game are still nowhere near full knowledge.

    I have 8 scouts all at a decent level.

    January window in season 4 closed - no ins or outs.

    We are going well in the league again but so are Rangers so there’s only a few points in it. In the League Cup we once again played them in the final, and we needed a late goal in normal time, and then again in extra time, to take the game to penalties. Luckily we got the job done. It’s only taken 4 seasons but they are finally starting to give us a game.

    We were really good in the CL group stage, beating Zagreb twice, Sevilla at home and drawing with them away, home draw with PSG and a brilliant 3-0 away win in in Paris. We topped the Group and got what looks like a good draw in the Last 16 - Lazio.

    Is there any particular reason why players are such moany little * in this game?

    the first bit of criticism they get in a post-match team talk (after which they were well-beaten by a * team may I add!) they are al crying and getting together moaning to the board and then causing player revolts because they’re unhappy with my team talks.

    Little *, told them all to * up and get on with their jobs or I’ll sell each and every last one of them.

    can’t buy a win for love nor money now but * them I’ll take the sack to prove a point :56::56::56::56:
