Bottoms Up – Part 22: The End of the World | @FMCM_FC

For one last time, let’s go back to Nathan’s upside down world. With the world almost back to the right way up, can Rangers finish in style?

Hello and welcome, for the final time, to the Upside Down world. The aim in the beginning was simply to get Rangers from Division 3 back to the top of Scottish football. We have achieved that and defended the crown. We’ve had a little run in Europe but now all the focus is on the final half of the season. The League Cup is in the bag and now we want to add the League title and FA Cup. So let’s see if we can do that.

AFC United : Part 35 – From Brown To Black | @Matt_c_Wills

All good things come to an end and after 35 quality episodes, this is our last visit to AFC United. Matthew…

We’ve reached the end of our long and winding road following the fortunes of Alex Ferguson’s Cast Offs. We signed off Season 16 in style with the proper treble of League, FA Cup and European glory.

We said goodbye to fan favourite David Brown as the close season updates rolled, he’d passed the 450 goal mark, helping land more trophies for the cabinet and told me he was off to pursue a career in podiatry. I’m not ashamed to admit, I shed a tear.

However, Danny Hall, Alex Notman, Terry Cooke and Richie Wellens were still hanging around and I wondered whether ‘one more season’ might be worth it, and it was, but in a completely different way to before.

Firstly, we had some retirement shaped holes to fill. I quickly found the regens of Andrew Duncan…

Battle of the Tactics: The Ultimate Formation | @KingOfTheRooks

Philip is out of action for a few weeks – get well soon my friend. We’ll be back with Lierse to see the finale later in the year but we have a treat of an Andrew experiment in his absence. What’s the best tactic in CM9798? An impossible question you may think but Andrew has been editing…

Following the Blog Squad’s Champions League Manager escapades and the frequent CM Cup the question always lingers…which non-AI formation is the best? Well, here we’ve taken the 10 most popular formations (and some guests) and pitted them against each other in the Scottish Premier League. Feels the best template given they’ll face off with each other more frequently due to the size of the league. So which formations have we chosen?

The Tactics:

CD Dons – Episode 15: Double Down | @Emsonite

Recap of Rules & Objectives

  • Vinny Jones captain.
  • Only players with Aggression 18+ allowed
  • Hurt the opposition; fan prizes for sending offs, opposition injuries and total disciplinary points.
  • Thug-o-Meter; every CD Dons game is won, drawn or lost on injuries and cards (5 for a red, 3 for an injury, 1 for a yellow). +3 pts for a win, -1 for a draw, -3 for a loss. Double in Europe. At the end of the season, I need to be in positive points, or I’ll get the sack.
  • Beat last season’s tally of +45

The Blog Squad FC – Part 16 | @RossBell1984

Happy hump day! For one final time this year, here’s Ross.

Well here we are, The end. For now at least, Last week we missed out on the league title in heartbreaking fashion. I’m going to be taking a break from this save for a few months with a view to return in 2022 with The Blog Squad’s first European adventure!

But for today let’s have a look at the stats for the stars of the show after they ran through 4 divisions with ease.

Andrew Chapman – Defender Centre – The Rock. Through four divisions Andrew has been one of our most consistent performers, I mean just look at those ratings, 6 red cards in 4 seasons is enough to get him a transfer to CD Dons in the future I’m sure. 6 goals from the CB position is also nothing to sniff at.

Bottoms Up – Part 21: Redemption In Vain | @FMCM_FC

It’s Tuesday and as you well know, Tuesday is Nathan day. Let’s go Upside Down…

Hello and welcome to Season 6 in Upside Down Glasgow. Last season we ruled Scotland again winning the League and Cup double but our European exploits where short lived as we got knocked out of the Champions League by a wonderful AC Milan team then knocked out of the UEFA Cup by Salernitana after a shocking first leg. So the aim this season is to make the Group Stages of the Champions League as a bare minimum.

AFC United – Part 34 : The Winner Takes It Hall | @Matt_C_Wills

Happy Monday! Here’s Matt twisting all of our melons with the end of another AFC United season and the race for records is on…

449. That’s how many goals David Brown has scored for AFC United.

It’s our final season with the guys Fergie deemed surplus to requirements (well, mostly. I have Rio Ferdinand but he’s been shut out by Danny Hall). Anyway, we left things last week having hauled ourselves to the top of the table and with interest still in the FA Cup and Champions League.
