Our League ambitions may have fallen apart but the European dream continues! We somehow have managed to throw ourselves into contention for a treble! Newcastle fans have never been this excited about a season!

It may look like a clickbait title, but it definitely isn't! This episode has, without doubt, the most exciting game of Football Manager I've ever played. My stress levels go absolutely through the roof!
After getting a surprise result in the first leg, things quickly fall apart in the second, before all hell breaks loose! If you enjoy this FM17 video, please drop a like and subscribe for the finale tomorrow!

Episode 42: Brexit!
It's the start of our Fifth season with Newcastle and there's some big changes in pre-season. It's not so much the players as the club itself. Mike Ashley has gone! Finally! Newcastle fans rejoice!
Unfortunately there's no new billionaire owner and the new guy has 'pumped' £1m into the club, but at least the club can return to normal. We also had Brexit happen, so watch the video to see how it impacts the game!

Episode 43: Making the Champions League!
Our fifth season with Newcastle gets off to a solid start with five wins in our first six games across all competitions. We have a very tough draw handed to us in order to make the group stage of the Champions League, but the strength of our team shows through.
The League is definitely the priority for me this season, so let me know if you think we should go after the EFL Cup. I'm a big fan of the FA Cup so I'll always want to win that, but the EFL can really choke up the fixture list.

Episode 44: A Very Different Start.
Last season we started off with a phenomenal winning streak that helped us secure a place in the Champions League. This season we're starting off with four defeats in six games.
That said, we're doing a bit of a Leicester at the moment by winning all of our Champions League games and none of the Premier league matches. We should qualify from our group without too much trouble and then we really have to push on from there in the league.

Episode 45: Back to Perfect Form!
After struggling for form in our last episode we've really stepped it up in this one. Five wins across six games has put us back in contention in the league and secured our qualification as group leaders in the Champions League.
Two stunning victories over Monaco certainly lend a hand to the form, but we now have two months where we can focus purely on pushing back up the league table.

Episode 46: Perfect Premier League Form!
Having qualified as group winners in our last episode, we were able to full focus on the league today and managed to pick up four victories on the bounce! Added to our great form from last episode we're now up to second in the table and have put ourselves back into title contention.
We're in a strong position to push on in the league, but I need to know if you guys want me to prioritise the FA Cup still. Let me know down below!

Episode 47: Our Biggest Defeat Yet!
We put ourselves in a position to really go after the title in our last episode, but this time out we're doing everything we can to avoid it! We start off well enough with a comprehensive win over Liverpool, but then along come Man City...
Overall we're still in good shape and only need to worry about the League and Champions League. I'd be disappointed if we failed to progress right up to the end of these competitions as I feel the squad is more than strong enough.

Episode 48: January Transfer Deadline Day Deals!
We're into the new year now and somehow the title race still has us in it! A massive episode today as we take on Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
In the middle of those games there's some good wins around other teams further down the table that sets us up nicely to push on. Next time out we get back into Champions League action, so make sure to check it out!

Episode 49: Champions League Knock-Out Stages!
Today we make our debut in the Champions League Knock-Out Stages and it's against Atletico Madrid. They're out for revenge after we scraped past them in the Europa League last season so we need to be on our guard for this one.
We also try to keep pace in the Premier League in our hunt for the title, but some of the smaller teams keep trying to throw a spanner in the works...

Episode 50: Can We Win The Title?!
The title is decided and it's happened with a feeling that most Newcastle fans will be familiar with... We gave it a good go but two costly defeats have let us down and Tottenham are deserved winners.
This is the 50th episode of the series and I'd love to see us hit 50 likes to celebrate! Next time out we're taking on our final two games in the hope that we can secure Champions League qualification for the second year in a row, so make sure to check it out!

Episode 51: Season 5 Finale!
After seeing the title just escape our grasp yesterday we now have to focus on securing our place in the top four for next season. Having been in the title race for so long it would be a real blow to miss out on the Champions League right at the end.
We also do our season five end of season review and take a look at who our best players were through the season. Some players will be sold and I'm interested to start bringing in a few more youth prospects.

Episode 52: The Summer Transfer Window
Now that the season has come to an end it's that time of year where we try to squeeze as much money from the board as possible to strengthen the team.
It was still difficult to try and pull in a great player and some of our long serving footballers have been moved on, but I think we're very well set up to go out and finally get that title. We also play the first match of the season against Middlesborough.

Episode 53: Perfect Home Record!
It's the start of a new season and we're kicking off with big games against Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool in this episode. We're been on a good run since the end of last season but we are struggling to pick up wins away from home.
Luckily we're perfect at home and are making St James' Park a fortress. If we can keep it that way up to the end of the season then we'll be in with a very good chance of securing the title.

Episode 54: Grabbing The Away Wins!
We pick up our first away win in the Premier League today as we continue our excellent march to the top of the table. It might not be quite as good as when we won 14 in a row a couple of seasons ago, but it's definitely good progress.
On the flip side, we lose two matches for the first time this season, both in the cup competitions. Despite putting out a reasonable strong team for the match against Man City, some poor defending has cost us dearly.

Episode 55: We Are Top of the League!
This has been the most consistent start to a season that we've had for a very long time and we're beating some big teams along the way! We've managed to climb to the league summit, although it has come at the cost of our unbeaten league run.
In the Champions League we've managed to set up a group deciding match with Porto in the next episode, after they beat us in Portugal a few weeks ago.

Episode 56: They're Catching Us..
Our excellent league form has continued, but a couple of unlucky draws have allowed other teams to close the gap at the top. A very dramatic match at Sunderland saw the cards hit double digits, with a very dramatic end.
We also managed to win our Champions League group, allowing us to hope for a kinder knock-out stage draw. With the competition at a close for Christmas, we can focus on securing our league position.

Episode 57: Six League Wins in a Row!
Despite winning six league games in a row, the chasing pack are managing to keep pace with us. The question now seems to be if we have the legs to sustain such a good title challenge.
A big defeat in the final match of this episode really does through the league wide open and we're going to need a good January transfer window to see this through with the FA Cup about to start.

Episode 58: Getting Hammered 5-1
Our League form takes a big hit today as we play games against Liverpool and Arsenal. After a great recent run that position at the top of the table is starting to look a little bit shaky.
Our home form is holding up quite well but the Champions League latter stages will kick off next episode and will add an additional dimension to our title campaign.
