I hand out rests for the big game

EURO First Knockout Round, Leg #1 – Away vs Hoffenheim – I begin defensively. I’ve been surprised by how good we’ve been. Can we continue that? The good news? Their form is horrible they are down to 12th in their league and we are on proverbial fire.



We begin the match with the first goal of the game! Lorenzo crossed beautifully to Solanke who regularly seems to play up. I doubt that score stands.

Other Goals

HALF
Jens to Lerager, goal, in the 88th minute on an IFK

We win 2-0. MOM is Bell. Good shut out!

Next?

Shakhtar. Not as bad as it could have been.


Gomes is out for a week and Jens will start for him

Our gate receipts of 1.2 mill is a new record!


Ligue Game #28 – Home vs Reims – I begin controlling against the 20th team in the Ligue. Which means we’ll struggle and finish 1-0. Which I’ll take.

Goals

Besnard to Joao, ifk, 22nd minute. Besnard!
Them in the 37th
HALF
Besnard to Slimani, goal, 71st minute. Besnard!!
Besnard to Slimani, goa, 74th minute. Besnard!!!
Besnard to Slimani, goal, 83rd minute. Besnard!!!!
They score in the 91st minute


We hold and win 4-2. MOM is Slimani. He will not go quietly into retirement!

I have 4.5 million left. I go wonderkid shopping. Any wonderkids I can sign? Anywhere? I can develop them and make them happy.

I scout some folks. A Dutch winger and two Argentinian keepers.

March

4th – Away vs OM
9th – Away vs Shakhtar
12th – Home vs OL
16th – Home vs Shakhtar
19th – Home vs Nice

Good training – Bell, Besnard, Nielsen

Just five games but these first four are rough.

We finish with an offer for 3 mill for 17 year old GK Nicolás Gutiérrez from Argentina. He’ll join us in a few months. I also offer to another player in the same country.

We agree to 750k for Cristian Escobar another young youth from Argentina.

Ligue Game #29 – Away vs OM. I begin defending. Gomes is back from his injury.


Goals

Besnard to Lorenzo, 18th minute. Besnard!
They get a red card in the 43rd minute when they have no shots on goal
HALF
Them in the 78th

Game. We tie them 1-1. Credit OM for playing us hard for a half.

One big game down, three to go.

Wanna see how close the table is? We are sitting in 3rd with 67 points and Monaco and PSG are tied with just two points more with 9 games to go. It really could be any one of us at the end of this thang. However OL are back a full 14 points away and we are comfortably in 3rd for Champions victory. Had we won against OM there would have been a 3 way tie!



Our youth intake is here. I investigate the “golden generation”. That was true of Nitra when it happened.

I hire a new Algerian international head coach for my U19 squad

Here’s the Fortuna after 22


Ligue Game #30 – Home vs OL. I begin standard against our jinx. They are our Senica or Ruzomberok. If we can get a result here then that’d be good for our chances of living at the 3 or higher spot.

Goals

Cano to Solanke, 6th minute
They score us back in the 14th
Cano to Besnard, goal, 26th minute
They score back in the 39th
Machacek to Gomes, 42nd minute – it’s going to be one of those games…
HALF
Them in the 67th
Gomes to Besnard, 71st.
Besnard to Machacek, 86th minute
They get a red card



Wanna see my 5-3 cardiac victory? MOM is Besnard.

Three big matches done….

Now the biggest…

Now the biggest…

EURO 2nd Knockout Round, 2nd Leg – Home vs Shakhtar. We got a lot of away goals in our tie, so a 0-0, 1-1, or any win gets us through. We just need to be professional. I begin countering. I wanna get a feel for the match first.

Goals


HALF
Machacek to Besnard, 76th minute!




We have a ton of shots on target but they have held until now.

They score in the 84th


We hold and are through on away goals!

We made it to the quarter finals!

That’s our fourth big match!

We drew…OL for the Quarters!

What fun that’ll be!

29th – Home vs Nantes

Ready for the big one!

The Coupe de la Ligue Final

Your #3 team Bordeaux

We will have Joao out for a card, and Init-Mirin is in for him. I begin standard,

Goals



We score first off a corner kick!

Cano to Besnard, goal, 45th minute
HALF
Them in the 83rd



We win 2-1! Holding was MOM

We win 2.5 mill cash

We officially qualify for the EURO even if we lose every game left.

Besnard was the top goal scorer with 9 goals and Machacek the top assist king with 4.

Besnard set a top rating in the Couple over Mbappe the previous high.

Besnard’s 9 goals is two more than the competition’s record.

EURO Quarter Final 1st Leg, Home vs OL – I begin countering. I wanna get a feel for the game. We had the crazy 5-3 result here earlier this season so I wanna make sure we aren’t getting carried away.

Goals

Solanke to Lorenzo in the 22nd minute
They score and hit us back in the 27th
They get an OG from Joăo a few minutes later
HALF
Gomes to Besnard, goal in the 47th minute – ties it back up
Them in the 72nd minute


We lose 3-2. Not a good day for Moreira. They had 3 shots on target. That should have been 2-0 or 2-1 us. We need him to play back to form.

We are likely out barring a two goal away match against our Ligue kryptonite. Unlikely to say the least!



Wanna see the best player who is willing to coming to us? This person would be our Neymar but we need money in the 20s and we don’t have it. I have him on my shortlist in case that changes in the future.

Ligue Match #33 – Home vs LOSC – I begin standardly.


Goals

Cano crosses to Besnard for goal in the 17th
Besnard drives the corner and crosses to Solanke for goal in the 44th
HALF
They score off a DFK in the 57th
Them in the 83rd
Besnard to Solanke, goal 88th can we hold and win?
They score in extra time

Game 3-3 tie. MOM is Cano


That tie pretty much guarantees us 3rd. Both PSG and AS Monaco won and now have 5 points on us with 5 games to go, so even if we win out the likelihood of passing both isn’t high.



Here! As you can see we are still 11 points over OL so we are very safely in 3rd, and we could lose out and still make it.

EURO QF, Leg #2 – Away vs OL – I begin defensively. Can we win by two goals? Can we get the 5-3 result away? This is likely a woodshed game.

Goals

Them in the 37th
HALF – They are dominating this match
Them in the 53rd
Them in the 57th

We lose 0-3. That was a spanking. We struggle more against OL than against PSG. That’s my first three goal loss this year.

Gomes is out for two weeks and Jens will start for him

Ligue Game #34 – Away vs Rennes, currently 5th in the Ligue. I begin defensing.

Goals

Them in the 17th
Besnard to Solanke after driving the box in the 26th
Them in the 32nd
HALF
Besnard steals the ball and feeds Solanke for goal in the 73rd minute. If that result holds then we would have stolen this game from Rennes. We have 5 shots to their 17
They score in the 84th minute. Not a shock. Can we get another goal?


We lose 3-2 on the road. MOM is Solanke. They had 6 shots on target that should have been 2-2 or 2-1 with my Moreira…

Them in the 67th and I hope we can steal a result.

Ligue Game #37 – Home vs AS Monaco – I have hopes for today’s math. We have played them at home three times in my run with Bordeaux. Those were 1 tie, 1 5-1 thumping of them, and one 1-3 loss. We have six points on OL so I’ll take a tie. Or another thumping. I begin countering and then will relax after I get a feel for the game. Can we siege Castle Courtois? Lorenzo is back.

Goals

Them in the 17th
HALF
Them in the 73rd

We lose 0-2.

The bad news? We lost to AS Monaco. The good news? OL tied FC Lorient 2-2.

We qualify for the Champions cup! We get 3rd locked in

The final table. AS Monaco won! We finished with 6 losses and 8 ties, and a big fat 23 wins.

My Goals for Bordeaux

1. Get them back to EURO this year in year one. COMPLETED Year One
2. Do some damage in the EURO. COMPLETED Year Two
3. Get them high enough to qualify for the Champion’s League. COMPLETED Year Two
4. Win Ligue 1
5. Win a Cup. COMPLETED Year Two


We won the Coupe de la Ligue after our resounding 5-1 victory against AS Monaco. We devastated Europe in the EURO and knocked out many big name teams from big name places, like Malaga and Benfica. We finished 3rd and are making the Champions league next year due to our early form.

Good job team!

Roster

GK Moreira – 3. He didn’t finish well. But he’s my best GK no doubt so we’ll need to get him back up to quality like he began the year.

DC Nielsen – 3 – Locked in as a starter

DC Holding – 3 – Locked in as a starter and my captain

DC Joao – 3 Locked in as a starter

DMC Bell – 3 Locked in as a starter

MC Machacek – 4 My best signing this year locked in+ as astarter.

MR Cano – 3 – Locked in as a starter

ML Lorenzo – 3 – Locked in as a starter

AMC Gomes – 0 – Letting go and have his replacement already under contract

ST Besnard – 4 – Cannot move him

ST Solanke – 2 – Playing the wrong role since I signed him as a complete forward but he plays deep lying one which is not his strength. I might be willing to bring in a stud deep lying forward or target man and drop him to #3 on my depth chart.

Leaving – Slimani, Gomes, De Preville

We tied PSG with 77 goals for most in the Ligue. We allowed 44 which was tied for 7th/

Nitra won the Fortuna.

This dynasty is now tied with my longest of all time. If I play one game in year 7 this will be my longest ever…



Here are our annual season awards. Besnard was Player of the Year!

I hold a team meeting, let’s qualify for the Champion’s Cup again!

Great training for the year – Bell, Cano, Besnard, Lorenzo and Machacek.

We made 36 mill this year

Besnard’s 43 goals for Bordeaux is a new record. As is his 27 assists and his 12 MOM.

Man City defeated OL 2-0 to win the EURO

We get 6.6 mill from the EURO

Besnard was 3rd in the Player of the EURO and he made the EURO Dream Team. Good job Besnard!

Besnard is the gift that keeps giving…

I’m surprised no one chased him in this past Winter break and I was expecting to lose him. That may happen in a little bit.

As Monaco won the French Cup 1-0 over Nantes

Our transfer money arrives and it might be enough for my stud winger, William Santana. It’s 28 mill. I go shopping.

We agree to a 22 mil dollar deal – that’d leave me 6 mill in surplus which should be fine. I have my starting XI ready so I only need a big giant stud like Santana

We offer him 75k/year for four years

I have 21 players called up for the U21 EURO Championships including four starters like Bell for Austria and Marchi and Besnard for France. As well as players like Ross Ferguson and Kamenik and Neilsen.

Kamenik was named as the Czech Division Young Player of the Year playing for Sparta Prague. Good job Kamenik.

Jankovic is now French

Santana has signed! There was interest from places like Man utd and Liverpool but no one else made an offer. He’ll count as a valuable Foreign player my first. He’ll join us in July 1st

Bordeaux moved up 5 spots to 52nd on the Euro clubs list

Aurélien Tchouameni signed with Strasbourg

We get that sweet Ligue 1 cash from our TV rights

We set a new audience high with an average attendance of 31,773

I set up friendlies with the Czech First Division.

I move Cano back to hot prospect in order to make room for my big acquisition

The job interviews are coming again. I decline one for AC Milan.

And…

I need three keys subs. One St, one DC, and one that can play a few places on my squad.



One of these is already on my squad. Peeters needs some subs. He is away at vacation now and has his arrows down, common in FM18. He has developed into my 5th DC Option. I’ve had this stud for 18 months and he’s proven himself.

Weah still hasn’t learned the ST roles and I doubt he ever will. He;s not my 6th player like I was hoping…

I look to see if we have any STs I can bring in on a free.

A few big names like Alexis Sanchez and Gareth Bale are interested…

Could I bring in one for a year at AMC and then move in Marchi after another year of development




Here is Marchi today. I could give him another year of growth and then start him next year…

I also am considering a stud ST that replaces Solanke and that would work for a year or two and send him to the bench.

I find…another young Australian Striker… I call him Bruno II. I make him an offer and he should be my 4th St, but I still need a 3rd or 2nd.

Are either Bale or Sanchez looking a rotation deal? I doubt it. Nope.

It’s too bad I don’t run a 4-2-3-1 I could run both at AML and AMR.

Actually…

I was considering a 3-6-1. We are in the era of middies and you out middle the 4-5-1 or 3-5-2 variants.

But I’m not switching tactics in order to bring in temporary talent like Sanchez or bale.

There’s a good defensive forward but nope.

I can’t find anybody on a free.

How about for sale?

Nope!

I’ll just need my youth to be my #3 Striker, and we’ll stick with Solanke as no one is better than him!


Other than Weah do I have another Striker I can develop at the four spot?

Nope. I’ll give Weah my 7th sub for now but I’ll look for another.

July

8th – Friendly vs Teplice
15th – Friendly vs Slavia Prague
22nd – Friendly vs Sparta Prague
29th – Friendly vs Dukla Prague

July 1st is here!



Wanna see my new project? I offer to loan him out and I get a few offers immediately from Caen. This has a great, high future ability and will be my future project. He takes a valuable foreign spot but my hope is that after a few years of French play he’ll get EU membership.



Here’s my other Argentinian youth that is on loan at FCSM here in French in Ligue 1. They are meant to play together!




And the bug guy coming in at 4.5 stars.

I send Gutierrez to Caen

Here are my contracts set to expire. We have three subs but no starters up for renewal. I make offers to some youth.

Our players return!



Besnard again a major award! He got 7 goals in four appearances! He also was the Golden Boot winner, Goal of the U21 Euros, and named to the best XI!


Bordeaux is the House that Besnard Built!

My Australian ST arrives!

Here is Fotis Fevgas, another Australian player (he’s also Greek so he counts as EU). I like his ability to be a target man and he could develop into Solanke’s 2nd across from Besnard if he develops correctly. He needs mental development.

I am currently 400k under my budget!

Friendly vs Teplice – We win 6-0. MOM is Santana with a goal and an assist and a 9.4 rating

Friendly vs Slavia Prague – We win 3-0. MOM is Machacek with a goal and a 9.3 rating

Friendly vs Sparta Prague – We win 2-0 MOM is Besnard. We’ll probably win the next game 1-0

I hire a new Russian coach who is better at tactical coaching.

We are 7-2 odds of winning.

Friendly vs Dukla Prague – We win 4-1, MOM is Besnard

Besnard is the favorite to top the Ligue goal charts

I loan Ferguson to Guingamp again

Ligue Game #2 – Home vs Montpelier - I begin standard. I start Cano at ML for Lorenzo after his hot assists in the last game.


Goals

Marchi to Santana in the 7th minute. That’s his first goal and that’s his first assist
Santana to Solanke in the 18th minute
HALF
Cano to Santana, goal in the 61st
Cano to Besnard, goal in the 73rd

We hold and win 4-0. They had one shot on target not hard for Moreira. MOM is Santana.


I’ll leave Cano in for now as the dude has four assists in two games! I drop Lorenzo to hot prospect as well.

I accept an offer for my Italian backup GK.

We get a ton of cash for making the Champions League Group Stage

The transfer deadline is here, I haven’t gotten any offers for my wonderkids. Weird.

Wow.

So long Champion;s Cup…

Are you ready for our group?

Get ready!

Barcelona
Bayern Munich
Benfica
Bordeaux

That’s…rough.

That’s the woodshed group.

The transfer deadline passes

I look for a replacement. The transfer window shut but there is a rule you can move one player from a French squad. Are there any with other French squads? This rule is called the Joker rule.

Yes!

The backup GK at PSG is not happy and is transfer listed by request. He wants to start…

Name of Sergio Rico, he’s 30 and would be a slight improvement on Moreira.

I make him an offer of the transfer listing of 15 mill.

The international break begins.

Rico joins us!



Here he is! He’s a bit slower than I’d like a this level but he’s a better shot stopper although less aerial.



Here I’ll show you… Rico is better at shot stopping, mental and such, but Moreira isn’t bad. Rico is going to be my new starter. I move Moreira to not needed and transfer list him.

Weah signs his new deal

October

3rd – Away vs Benfica
7th – Home vs Nantes
21st -Away vs FC Lorient
24th – Away vs Barcelona
28th – Home vs AS Monaco

Good training – Santana, Martin, Calvet

That’s a big month! Two major away Champions games and the big AS Monaco.

Besnard won player of the month!

Santana was 3rd

That win moved us to 1st. Wanna see the table after 8?



As you can see everyone has lost. OL lost three times, PSG and Monaco each twice, so our one loss has us out in front. It’s a good form and place to be. OL Won their first four games big and were overwhelming as the #1 team but dropped three games of four in the back of the first 8 games. Right now we are the most consistent team running around!

I hook up Rico and Santana

Champions Group Stage Game #2 – Away vs Benfica – I am starting Moreira as Rico wasn’t registered. I begin defensively. We tied them 1-1 away last time, and I’d be happy to do so again this year!

Goals

17th minute they foul Besnard in the box and Solanke….sinks the PK! That;s his 50th goal for Bordeaux
Besnard to Solanke, goal,. 26th minute…





And we are up 2-0! I doubt that score lasts with Moreira in GK.
HALF
Them in the 53rd off a corner kick
Solanke sinks a second PK in the 85th minute. I’ll take it. (They have gotten 5 cards this game to our 0)


We hold and win 3-1. MOM is Solanke’s hattrick. Solanke just plays up. There is a reason he is still on my team…

We make 1.5 mill

Marchi wants an increased deal and I offer him one that increases his salary from 5.5 k to 22.5/k but remains hot prospect.
