Shame this didn't work out, Fiorentina can be a lot of fun in the first 2-3 years of this game.


I think it was the lack of defense-minded midfielders to be honest. That's all I can come up with.


Yeah the team really does rely on Pizarro for basically all of the defensive responsibilities in midfield (and his stats in FM don't reflect how good/smart he is defensively). When he's out we bring in Migliaccio, who's solid defensively but doesn't offer nearly the Pirlo-esque passing range that Pizarro does. The only downside is he often is forced to make saving fouls to prevent counter attacks, and he always gets yellow cards (something like 17 fouls in all league games, 13 of them resulting in yellows).

Winter Break is here, so I guess a little update is in order.



6 points off the top of the table with a game in hand.

2 wins [Montpelier/Nancy Lorraine] and 3 draws {PSG/Nice/Toulouse] in the league.

Lost to Montpelier in some cup the board didn't care about, so I played as many backups as possible.

Drew Inter in Europa and Marseille in the French Cup.

No real great matchups in Europa League outside of mine, but Madrid is in there. Guess that's why Mourinho got the boot lol. Winner of my game with Inter plays either Hannover or Liverpool

Just lost a game we had no business losing. Freaking French Cup too.

Up 1-0 in the last 10 minutes away at MArseilles. RB heads it to the Cb who doesn't make any effort to go toward the ball. Keeper has to run out to try and get it. Attacker gets it first and has an empty net.

Then a freaking own goal in extra time.

The amount of mistakes made in FM 13.

When would players understand that you shouldn't tackle so that the ball goes towards the net, or make a pass that goes across your own net or make a pass backward when a striker is pressuring the CB.

Just gave up a goal where my defender was straight up tripped from behind when he went to clear the ball...

I swear if I get fired from this job, I will flipping rage.

My job is very insecure because of the "horrible league position."

The team was 11th when I took over. 2 months later, we're sitting in 7th place, 6 points off 1st and 3 off 4th.

End of February



Lost to Inter 5-2 on aggregate.

Beat Bordeaux and Lorient on my rise top top 4.

Definitely turned the season around. My job went from very insecure to stable.

Finished the season. Pretty damn pleased with how it turned out myself. Especially after the embarrassment at Fiorentina. Took over the team when they were in 11th and finished 5 points off the top.

Other stuff of interest from around the world:
Fiorentina finished 15th
Arsenal finished 10th
Bayern won Bundesliga by 1 point over Dortmund
City had 103 points!
Chelsea repeated in the Champions League

Just turned down a contract extension. Not sure if I should just play my contracts out and go elsewhere or stay at one place until I win something big and move on.

Probably the latter.

Get hired by Madrid and win the treble. Laughing

This team has a serious lack of creative players. There's only one player with 16 or above.

Got Porto, Olympiakos, and BATE in the Champions League.

Some good groups if this was in real life.

Wolfsburg, Milan, PSG, Benfica
Dortmund, Zenit, Liverpool, Inter
Juventus, Ajax, MAdrid, APOEL

August/September Update



2 points off 1st with a game in hand.

Tied with Porto on 4 points after 2 games. Would be up, but my freaking center back decided to stand there and let the pass from the right back go past him and let Jackson Martinez pick it up for a 1v1 on Ospina.

Clock was at 91:54 when he scored the tying goal. There was 2 minutes of ET.
