The True Football Manager

Almost the third in Premier League

Posted: 27 Sep 2010 10:32 PM PDT

The season #7 is over. I found my team at the 4th position in Premier League in the end. But it was almost the 3rd actually. Take a look at the final league fixture below.

Final fixture intrigue

Leeds United made a confident win against Everton. During this match I was opening and closing, opening and closing Premier League latest scores and looking into Aston Villa match with mixed feelings…

Leeds - Everton 1:0, FM 2010

You see on the screenshot below that Wigan equalled match score on the 62nd minute just right after the moment when referee sent off Gary Cahill. If Aston Villa didn't win the match Leeds would be on the 3rd place in PL. But unfortunately flamboyant midfielder Mesut Ozil scored a goal during the last 10 minutes of the game….

Aston Villa - Wigan 2:1, FM 2010

Premier League table of season #7 turned into the following screen shot:

Tottenham won Premier League, FM 2010

Tottenham and Manchester City were too strong this season. At first Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool didn't get into Top 4 in my game!

But let's return to Leeds. It's certainly the best league result of Leeds in my game. You may compare it with other seasons:

Leeds in Premier League. Last 5 seasons , FM 2010

Taken 75 points – new level for our team. Next season I am going jump even higher getting a title! And of course it's very tempting to show great efficient performance in Champions League:


Last matches played by Leeds

Last matches played by Leeds,

FA Cup

I managed to win FA Cup twice in row! I always say it's the most complicated task in football and actually any kind of sports:

Winning tournament you won last year. Staying king of rock.

Final game was pretty easy because our opponent was Nottingham Forest (the 2nd position winner in the Championship). It doesn't worth your attention. It's much more interesting to take a look at very tough match in FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal:

Arsenal - Leeds 1:3, FM 2010

Andre-Pierre Gignac saved the game during the last minutes. I was thanking him very muchHappy And he strengthen himself in as semi-final hero scoring the 3rd convincing goal in the middle of extra time. It was very nervous game I must concede!

Hope to win FA Cup again in the next season!

Season #7 summary, FM 2010

Sergiy Kryvtsov became the best Leeds player of the season and Runner Up in Signing of the Season category.

Sergiy Kryvtsov - Fans Player of the Year

Here are his attributes:

Sergiy Kryvtsov in Football Manager 2010

Sergiy Kryvtsov managed to replace Brede Hangeland as defence rock completely. I didn't even expect such kind of performance from his side during the debut season.

This time I forgot to put here traditional screen shot with all Leeds players. Now it's too late because I have just started playing the next season. Excuse me about that please. Anyway I can inform you that among the best players were:

- Marco Verratti (as usually)

- Andre-Pierre Gignac (scored almost 20 goals this year)

- Pablo Sanchez (defender of Argentine feels himself in Leeds like fish in water)

OK, that's enough for now. My next game story post will not be about Leeds United just because I will tell you how I managed Northern Ireland on Euro 2016!

Villarreal shocked Leeds United

Posted: 23 Sep 2010 09:54 PM PDT

Today is the time for another Leeds story post.

Leeds matches

Premier league table after 30 fixtures looks in the following way:

Season #7, Premier League table after 30 fixtures

Well I am pretty sure now that Leeds should play in Champions League under my management (at first in Football Manager 2010!). This season I have the best performance in Premier League with my team if we compare with previous ones.

Here is the list of my last results:

Leeds matches in season #7, FM 2010

Unfortunately the list ends with 3 poor losses… Especially I was disappointed and made angry with the 2nd knockout round of Europa League against Villarreal.


Villarreal vs Leeds United

It was something terrible frankly speaking:

Villarreal shocks Leeds United

They knocked my goalkeeper out with 3 powerful strikes. My attack didn't manage to provide such efficiency in responseSad  I knew it would be a tough battle but didn't expect so poor result at home…

Leeds - Villarreal 0:3

Sure the second match wasn't promising me many chances for gaining success in this round. And again it result in an equal game completed with negative result for Leeds United.

Villarreal - Leeds 1:0

Villarreal gave us a lesson Confused

Worst Leeds players in Football Manager 2010

This time I want to single out two midfielders:

Fabian Delph – he performs much better than in the last season (debut one in Leeds). Fabian scored 6 goals playing on MC position with Ball Winner role.

Javi Garcia – totally disappointed with his performance. Though I tried to use him as central defender what was a mistake. He is better in the centre of midfield. I think he will have new first squad chances from me in the next season.


New Leeds signing - Guilherme

Guilherme in Football Manager 2010


What I can say… Signed for free during winter transfer window. Striker of quite high quality who can compete for the first squad position with any of other Leeds forwards. The only problem is his complicated adaptation process in the very beginning of his Leeds career. Assistant manager informs that currently Guilherme has serious problems adapting in the team… I should just wait and use him as reserve squad player more often.
