Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now? Still Manage Them?

Recommended Posts

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

After 2 and a half years and 299 games i've just quit my first team - Shakhtar in WC143 :(

Feel kinda sad but just can't devote enough time to them anymore and have more interesting challenges to concentrate on.

Hope someone good accepts the job offer and they don't get ripped apart :rolleyes:

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

A couple of EC1 managers in the league I am in (Reading Teje) who manages River Plate and Newcastle United 4eva (Newcastle) who manages Barcelona. Well I have never won anything in the setup and have lost a couple cup finals and leagues by 1 point or so on the final day. Two weeks ago I made another cup final and to my sheer luck it was a unmanaged side but I forgot to change my tactics from the prior game and got beat once again in a final. I think I am destined to never win anything in this league but i'll keep trying.

:P

WC 781 If anyone wants to grab a team.

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

I still have my first team and it's one big succes story.

RSC Anderlecht in WC 541

http://www.soccermanager.com/profile.php?action=clubdetails&cid=257327&clubid=3074393&sid=1859

I took them over after a few games into season 2.

They were last in Div 4!

Managed to win the league with 25 points before 2nd.

Second season I immediatly won Div 3 with 16 points before 2nd, and the team was coming together.

Third season I got back to back to back championship wins as I won the league narrowly.

Fourth season I actually did the impossible and got crowned champions again, now in Div 1, effectively taking a team from last spot in Div 4 to first spot in Div 1.

I even won the fifth season too, making it back to back to back to back to back championship from Div 4 to Div 1 twice

Last season was the first time I didn't win the league, but I won the World Champ Cup which I was trying to win for 6 seasons, so I was still happy.

Now I'm sitting second atm to a great Barca.

My squad has every singly big youth player there is, and players like Aguero, Gourcuff, Pato, Silva, Pique, to name 5 out of the 50 players of this calibre I have.

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

I started of with tranmere rovers and got them out of the relegation zone in league 2. Currently they are still in league 2 and they are 14th. I then moved on to wigan athletic and won the league 2 title with them. after that i bought them some quality first team players and turned them into a regular division 1 side. After spending 2 seasons with them i got a job offer from chelsea. i thought long and hard as they had 50million to spend and a brill squad but i'm man u fan. eventually i accepted the job offer and i'm now currently second in div1 2 points away from 1st place with a fantastic youth squad and a brill first team.wigan(my ex club) are currently 11th in div 1 with a new manager and i have absolutely no regrets about leaving them for chelsea. heres my chelsea squad below...

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

I actually got a Barca

I left them after a couple of months because i was only mid-table and thought they deserved better.

Also thought i had failed in the Transfer market because my only contribution was to buy some unknown Argentine kid called Sergio Aguero. Anyone ever heard of him :confused::confused::confused:

My first team was Barcelona in Spanish championship 608, won the league by about 25 points first season, second season just started really.

Also CSKA Moskva World Championship 6380 took over roughly the same time, pretty succesful with them won the Division 1 first season again second season just started. I have a thread on that particular team kicking about on the forum somewhere ;)

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

my first ever club was portsmouth in ec106. I played for about 40 odd games before changing to Liverpool in ec106 and playing for 70 odd games. Such a great game world, would love to be in it now. But this was about 2-3 years and i stopped playing. Only just started playing again in the last few months.

My first ever team I managed is Stoke City in EC104 back in Oct 2008. Got them to three consecutive automatic promotion from Division 3. Won Division 3 and Division 2 runner-up. Now struggling in Division 1. :o (But are quite safe from relegation zone though)

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

My first club was Wolves in EC832. Left the set-up after I didn't get promoted but returned with Everton. Won the 2nd division in my first season and the 1st division in my second. I still manage the club but don't put as much effort in. Currently lying in 2nd though with an average around 90.

Re: Your First Ever SM Club. Where Are They Now?, Still Manage Them?

I was interested in finding this out so I went back and found my first ever club. It was Leeds United in EC 517. I had them in 2007 I think it was. The team is awful now! Govou is the best player and they are in Division 3!

I managed them for 16 games and I'm thinking about quiting a team to get them good seeing they are my first ever team. However, to do this I have to quit a Leeds I have now which has the likes of Lavezzi, Kjaer, Lloris, Marchisio...:o

Maybe, somebody can help me with this one.
