Getafe made a great signing in the January window. Spent £1.6m on a midfielder called Yaya Meledje from Willem II.

Debut, he got sent off for two yellow cards. Served a one game ban. Second game got a straight red. Served a one game ban. Third game, broke his leg.

Won the North West Counties League Division One North in my first season with Prestwich Heys. The leagues players player of the year, also the clubs player of the year, a 41 year-old Lee Hendrie. He was actually awesome for me, started every league games and made 23 assists and scored 9 goals. Couldn't convince him to hold off his retirement for another year.

Worst bit is that it is on my profile as a relegation.

They even mention the fact you were 13th at some point the same way they do when you are last for a while and then start improving and still can't avoid relegation.

I can just imagine the gritted teeth explanation at the next job interview when the chairmen brings up how you were relegated at your last club

I think it's completely broke the game, my assistant is suggesting I hold a team meeting as we could guarantee our safety with a win in the next match despite a. already being relegated and b. 40pts clear of the relegation places with two games to play.

Liverpool's starting XI for the 2023 Champions League final, where they beat Spurs 2-0

Alisson, TAA, Gomez, VVD, Robertson, Fabinho, Keita, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Firmino

Settled.

I’ve just got this, bit bamboozled by the whole tactics thing.

I must admit I’ve never played FM for the tactics. I tend to find something serviceable and stick with it. I’m more into the buying and selling and man management part. Any tweaks I make tend to be based on AM recommendations (this is probably sacrilege to the purists).

But now I notice all these pre-made tactics. Am I okay just picking one of them? Are any dreadful?

I just went back to older FM versions. This is turning out to be the easiest version of FM I played since 2012 and I'm getting bored. :(

I'd play again if I found a decent challenge in Europe. I may try it again in the future. At the moment after only 3 seasons I don't even feel like playing anymore. I'm not even putting much effort into it and I'm still winning.

{Passionate) "Now I know what you're thinking, there's no way we're going to be out of relegation. Well that's where you're wrong lads. See if we win this game the mayor will declare us a micronation. Can't be relegated from the league if we're forming our own national league instead!"

The majority of players are unhappy with this statement.

Captain: "Are you on drugs?"

(Cautiously) "No you."

This is the first time I've ever had an offer from a club to take one of my players on trial.

I am Fenerbahçe and I have lost my first three league games. Not sure it should be like this.

Scraped into Champions League on away goals against Standard Liege though, so at least I’m keeping the money rolling in
