Hi guys, unfortunately I had a bit or trouble trying to get new videos onto my channel, so I've been forced to set up a new one. I've also decided to make the channel purely FM focused, so please subscribe if you're looking for constant FM videos!

 

As I had to start fresh, I've picked up a Manchester City save with the simple objective of winning the illusive quadruple. I'm playing in the style of Guardiola so expect goals, possession and high pressing. To make up for losing the last two episodes, I've done two new one's to get us started that you can see below.

 

Episode one:

 

 

In this episode we kick-off the season and make our early transfers.

Episode Three:



Five more games, including the Champions League and League Cup. We nearly have the perfect start to the season, but that just wouldn't be football...

Episode 10: Winning the Cup Final at Wembley!



This is the big one! We get to play at Wembley in the Capital One Cup Final against Chelsea!

As you can maybe guess from the title of the video, we did manage to get the win and scratch the first of our four trophies off the list. We also took on Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League and looked to try and keep this Football Manager save alive.

Episode 11: Fighting back against Juventus

 



We're on a high following that amazing Capital One Cup Final win at Wembley but now we need to hit the ground running again by beating Juventus and overturning that earlier defeat in the first leg.

We also have crucial latter stage FA cup matches and have to get through some more league games. Overall it wasn't the greatest of episodes for us and the dream has died of winning the quadruple this season, but we are still on to get that treble and end a fantastic first season with Manchester City.

Episode 12: We won the league!



We did it! We managed to win the Premier League in our first season!

You might have noticed that my mood did drop towards the end of the episode because of that incredibly disappointing defeat to Arsenal in the Semi-Final of the FA Cup. The way that we lost that match was very disappointing, but at least we had a good run.

I'm hoping that next season we'll be in a much stronger position to go out on four fronts and we do have a good transfer budget to use. Next episode we will do an end of season review and probably jump through pre-season ready to go again.

Episode 13: £100m World record transfer!



This is our end of season one review episode and includes a quick round-up, summer transfers and pre-season.

The main piece of news is easily the £100m world record transfer of Paul Pogba from Juventus. We spent an enormous amount of money on the squad to strengthen our challenge for the football manager 2016 quadruple challenge in season two and I am very confident that we can achieve that goal.

We also play the Community Shield match at Wembley against Arsenal and manage to get that first piece of silverware. A perfect pre-season to boost morale ahead of the new premier league season!

Episode 14: Man City 7 v 1 Liverpool



In this episode we officially kicked off our league season with a few very tough games in a row. We started with a routine win over West Ham United and then moved on to beat Chelsea and, as you can see in the title, Liverpool.

The Liverpool win was easily our best win of this Football Manager 2016 save file so far, an incredible 7-1 victory! We then follow that up with a good draw against Arsenal and manage to beat Atletico away in our first Champions League match of the season.

An amazing unbeaten start to the season and I am very confident about our chances of achieving the FM16 Quadruple.

Episode 15: Why Watford?!



We nearly continue our amazing unbeaten start throughout this episode following our amazing performances last time, but Watford had to spoil the party at the end.

Still a really good overall performance from the team and we're doing very well but it's important that we bounce back in the next episode. We continue to lead our group and the champions league, and we got through to the next round of the Capital One Cup.

Episode 16: How do you fix bad form?



A very frustrating episode today as we are pushed through inconsistent form against teams we should be easily beating. This has been the hardest episode so far and I need to have a serious look at the team if we are going to turn this around for some big upcoming matches.

Episode 17: Finding Consistency



The patchy form continued through the beginning of this episode against teams that we should be beating. We managed to turn it around towards the end with a bit of squad rotation and I think the team maybe needs a small break.

A good win against Tottenham and against Atletico Madrid means we're still in decent shape, but we have work to do in the league and champions league if we want to take the silverware home.

The quadruple is still on and if we needed to go through some poor form, this is the time of season in which to do it. Hopefully now we can kick on and take our team to consecutive league titles.

Episode 18: Heading back to the top of the table



We've started to pick up some consistent form again in the league after our recent disappointments. I feel like we could have taken maximum points in this game, but I'll settle for being level at the top with a game in hand.

Frustrated by the draw with Hull but the late victory over Leicester made it worthwhile. Hopefully we can continue this form into the next episode as we hit the business end of the season.

Episode 19: Stunning form!

 

 

Back on top form in today's episode as we put together five wins and a draw to build on our recent recovery. We're playing like we did right at the start of the season and it looks like the traditional patch of poor form has hit at the right time, leaving us able to charge at the remaining competitions.

This episode also includes some amazing wins over Chelsea and Liverpool, who we leave sitting by the side of the road, but it does also include an incredibly nervy match with QPR in the FA Cup that could have thrown our season out the window.

Episode 20: FA Cup Crunch Time!

 

 

Last season we failed to win the FA Cup at the semi-final stage and our path to redemption this season begins in this episode. Two massive FA Cup matches that feature victories over Chelsea away and Leicester are surrounded by some key games in the league.

If we're planning to win four competitions this season we need to build up a good lead in the league but the matches are coming thick and fast. At the end of this episode we also play the first leg of the Champions League knock-out stage, putting us on a knife edge for the second leg.
