I won the Champions League with my local team Tromsø Cannot believe it. Took me 15 years but got there in the end. I even got to sub in the only player I’ve kept since I started the game, a guy who was 20 at the time but is now 34. I’ve even played against him in real life so it was fun to sub him in in the 90th minute.
The group was really easy, Porto, Marseille and Anderlecht. I won the group 3 points ahead of Porto. Then I got really unlucky in the first knockout stage when I drew Chelsea, but I actually beat them 4-0 on aggregate. Quarter finals was against Man Utd who lost the two previous CL finals. I barely got through, beating them 3-2 on aggregate with a strong 2-1 win at home. Semis was against Arsenal who won the CL last season. I lost 1-2 at home but won 1-3 away so won 4-3 on aggregate. Couldn’t believe it. The final was against West Ham who finished below Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea in the league so I was favourites to win. I probably spend half an hour yesterday and today analyzing them so I was very well prepared. It was an easy game, they had just one chance on a set-piece and I won 2-0 comfortably. I was so nervous though. I’ve played CM/FM since I was around 7/8 years old, I’m now 23 and this is by far my greatest CM/FM achievement ever. I even dressed up in a suit and played the CL anthem in the background to make some hilarious snapchat videos for my friends.
My team is actually that good, I reckon it’s the best team (or at least starting XI, my squad depth is terrible) in the game which has been difficult to achieve as my wage budget is only around a million pounds a week.
Edit: Went to the store and bought myself a bottle of Champagne. Fully deserved.
