Ooh, moving on within this save or starting a new save?

Moving on to a new save I think. I might return to this one in the future, but I think I need a new spark.

Episode 99: A Near Perfect Start!

 

It's important that we make the most of an easy start to the league season by picking up maximum points - and for the first three games we do just that!

Unfortunately Stoke give us a sharp reminder of how difficulty things can be if we don't take every opponent seriously. Wins over Sunderland and Inter Milan do lift our spirits and overall the start leaves us in a pretty good place.

Not a bad start to the season, could have done without the defeat to Stoke, but shouldn't be too much of an issue, as the teams above will certainly drop points.

Yeah, it was frustrating but we're still playing some good football overall!

Episode 100: Starting Strong!

 

It's another episode with five wins and one defeat, although I'm not too sad about the defeat as it fees up our mid-week fixtures from the burden of the EFL Cup.

Our Champions League campaign has started off strong as we look to end our final season at the club with European glory. The heartbreak of last season is still in our minds and we want to prove everyone wrong!

Episode 101: Annihilating Arsenal!

 

This starts out pretty rough as we go two games without a victory and setting up the possibility for a rough run of form. Instead, the team digs in and pulls out four consecutive victories!

Top of the class is a stunning demolition of Arsenal - winning 5 - 1 at home!

Episode 102: Chelsea and Spurs Away!

 

Our team is really starting to gel together very well now as some of the younger players get more used to being in the first team. We take out a lot of the lower teams in the league before finishing up with big games away against Spurs and Chelsea.

Both of those matches are absolute belters and they leave us in an incredible position as we approach the half way stage of the season.

Yeah, it could have been better but we need to be good enough to beat anyone!

Episode 103: Ten Points Clear!

 

The hard league struggles of a few years ago seem a million miles away now! Another fantastic episode has left us ten points clear at the top of the league in January!

The focus now is definitely on making sure we maintain and extend the lead ahead of the crunch Champions League games.

Episode 104: Manchester United and the Transfer Window!

 

It's another solid episode today but we are starting to slip up some very easy points against the teams we were beating very easily earlier in the season. Sunderland and Crystal Palace are both in the relegation zone and should have been giving us maximum points.

On the plus side, we have beaten Manchester United very comfortably in the league, removing our biggest competitor from last season from the title race already!

Yey, 10 points clear in January. Should be your title, but whatever you do, don't give rousing media grabbing speeches on camera about being very happy about beating Manchester base sides ;)

I WOULD LOVE IT IF WE DID NOT WIN THIS TITLE. LOVE IT.

Is that better? :P

Episode 105: The Greatest Comeback of All Time!

 

Well, there's a lot to say about this episode but it begins with two incredible disappointing defeats that leave our season in the balance! Having been hopeful of winning the treble, we go and get thrashed by Bayern and then dumped out of the FA Cup by Watford!

Fortunately the FM series is saved when, while 2-0 down to West Ham, our players turn on the gas and romp back 3-0! But that isn't the great comeback... That happens against Bayern...

Episode 106: Real Madrid in the Champions League!

 

Certainly an eventful episode today as our league title prospects swing wildly up and down! After a couple of disappointing results we're still on track to retain our title, even with that very poor draw against Southampton.

The Champions League is a different story however and going out to Real Madrid means we won't achieve our goal of European glory, instead settling for a runners up medal.

Episode 107: 1 Point Decides the Title!

 

The Champions League dream may be over but we're still firmly in control of this title race with just four massive games to go! Having to take on Spurs, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool in the final title run in is absolute madness!

Fortunately for us, we do the job and win the first two games, setting up a tense match with Man City to decide the fate of the title. The game was on a knife edge but City got the vital win and took it right down to the final game of the season...

Episode 108: End of Series Review!

 

After ten incredible years I've decided to call time on my Newcastle United career. It's been an incredible rise after nearly getting sacked twice in my first season! We've since gone on to finish in the top four consistently and also win the Premier League twice in a row!

The Champions League final was an unforgettable experience and we've signed some incredible players along the way. I can't wait for our next journey and I'm sure you guys will show it all the same support!
