Episode 19: Season 2 Finale and £70m!



We've reached the end of Season Two with Newcastle and amazingly we still have a job! Having come so close to the sack in our first season, we're actually in really good shape heading into season three.

It wasn't the greatest last few matches, but we didn't have an awful lot left to play for so I can't blame the players. Luckily the board have given us a huge transfer budget for next season so we can make some quality additions to the team!

Episode 20: Spending £100m in the Transfer Window!



The board gave us a huge amount of money for our third season after finishing so far clear of relegation last time out and we have definitely spent well! We have a slight problem in that the players that we want at the club don't want to come to us until we have European Football, so we're left taking the best of the rest.

We also play our first game of the season, although that doesn't quite go to plan. That is the theme of this save so far though and we need to figure out how to get things right as soon as possible!

Episode 22: It gets worse before it gets better!



My spirits had definitely dropped before and during this episode, but suddenly we changed the tactic and strung together three victories in six games to climb back up to mid-table!

The switch to our old 2016 tactic seems to have done the trick and we even managed to crush Manchester City 3-0, restricting them to not managing a single shot on target. Things are definitely looking up now!

Episode 23: Heading up the Table!



After switching up the player roles in the last episode, we've continued our excellent run today by picking up some more scalps. Annoyingly, we do have a little bit of inconsistency, but until we're in the European places on a regular basis, we have to expect that to happen.

Next episode we can start planning ahead for the second half of the season and take some time thinking about who else we can sign. If you have ideas, let me know!

Episode 25: Beating the Best!



An absolutely incredible episode today as we beat some of the best teams in the League while marching up the table. Barring a thoroughly disappointing defeat to Bournemouth, we managed to pick up five victories in six games.

The great form means we have now beaten just about every major team at home this season and shows that we can compete with the best. Had we managed to start this season better then I think we really could have been challenging for the Champions League.

Episode 26 - Newcastle 4 v 0 Spurs!



Our great run of form has continued, although there's a couple of losses either side of a four match winning streak. The highlight of the episode is easily beating Spurs 4-0 in one of the best performances we've ever had.

We're still in with a chance of qualifying for Europe through the league, but the FA Cup may be a more promising route for us to get there.

Episode 27: We're Going to Wembley!



Another strong episode from the team as we continue the kind of form that would usually get you into the Champions League. That really poor start to the season continues to haunt us, but we're pushing on regardless.

An amazing victory over Stoke in the FA Cup Semi-final has set us up to qualify for the Europa League next season regardless of our league position, but we have done an amazing job to get this far in the league and cup.

Episode 28: The FA Cup Final!



It's the end of our roller-coaster third season and we've made it all the way to the FA Cup Final! In addition to that, we secure 7th in the League and secure ourselves European football next season.

Given how well we improved after our awful start, I'm full of confidence about our chances of the Champions League next season. The key now is holding on to our best players and then strengthening the squad to make the challenge.

Episode 29: The Summer Transfer Window!



A bit of a short episode today as we run through pre-season and make some understated but significant trasnfers. Getting Meret on a free transfer is some exceptional business and Witsel will certainly help the team too.

We also play our first European game in the series as we look to make the group stage of the Europa League.

Episode 30 - The Perfect Start!



I don't think I've ever started a Football Manager season as well as this! The team have been absolutely phenomenal by winning every single match in this episode!

We also beat Arsenal and Leicester on the way, which just bangs home exactly how good we are this season. I'm very confident we can push for the Champions League places if we keep this up!

Episode 31: How Are We This Good?!



I feel like someone needs to pinch me! It's another stunning episode as we continue to win every match that we play! It's not been all easy, with some hard fought victories against big teams, but we are playing out of our skin!

The victory over Man City is particularly sweet given it came away from home. I genuinely don't know how far we can take this run, but I hope it never ends!

Episode 32: Can We Break the Record?



After winning our first 13 games of the season, we're closing in on the club record of 17 games unbeaten. If we can win the first four matches, we really will become one of the greatest Newcastle squads ever!

Unfortunately, that dream ends at 15 games. But we have set the record for the most consecutive victories by a Newcastle side and we've put ourselves in with a chance of challenging for the title!

This is a tutorial video on how to imitate my FM 2017 tactic with Newcastle United. Quite a few people watching asked for me to make something like this, so I hope it's useful!

If you have suggestions on how to improve it, or want to let me know how it worked for you then just let me know down below.

Episode 33: Chelsea, Spurs and Man Utd!



We suffered our first defeat of the season in our last match and things are not getting any easier now. We have big games against Chelsea, Spurs and Man Utd as we look to consolidate our position near the top of the table.

The slight dip in form is to be expected after such an incredible start to the season but we are managing to keep pace with the best and are certainly competitive, which is the main thing we have to focus on.

Episode 34: Macerating Man City!



We kick this episode off in spectacular fashion with an eight goal thriller with Manchester City. The stunning performance in that match is followed up with some very inconsistent form as we begin to lose ground in the title race.

I always felt this season was going to be about trying to get Champions League football, so I'm not too surprised at the poor form. We need to make sure we get back into gear for our next episode and pick up the wins again!

Episode 35: Back to our Best!



After a really frustrating time last episode we are back to form today with four wins in six games. We suffer a poor result against Arsenal, but our performances against the big teams have been pretty excellent up to now.

We also play the first leg of the EFL Cup semi final and go a long way to our second Wembley final in as many years.

Episode 36: Going Back To Wembley!



We continue our strong run of form in this episode, with just the one rather disappointing defeat along the way. Five very strong victories are in the run, including a couple of important league wins.

We also qualify for the EFL Cup Final at Wembley, after managing to overcome Sheffield Wednesday without too much trouble. With Bournemouth in the final, it's a real opportunity to win our first major silverware since 1969!

Episode 37: Can We Lift Our First Trophy?!



Our excellent run of form has definitely continued in this episode, but there's just so many Cup games! We suffer yet another defeat to a poor league team and those results are really starting to cost us.

Luckily our tournament form is exceptional and we also kick-off the Europa League KO stages in style. The highlight of this episode is undoubtedly the EFL Cup Final against Bournemouth, so make sure you check it out!

Episode 38: Reaching the Europa League Quarter-Finals!



The Cup competitions are really starting to hammer our league form now as the rest periods between games get shorter and shorter. We suffer two league defeats to add to some disappointing recent results and our top four ambitions are looking dented.

On the plus side, there's more cup games to come! We make the Europa League Quarter Finals and also progress in the FA Cup. It's looking more likely that we will win our second FM17 Trophy in the same season, after waiting over 40 years for the last one!
