Munir and Messi from Barcelona to United and City respectively? And Zouma from chelsea to city? I know it's only a game but that's pretty odd. XD

Besides, Messi would be a few years away from turning 40 in 2024. Hell, even I will be 30 by then (in football 30's considered old lol). XD

Barca actually sold Munir to Bayern before we bought him for something like £60m.

Messi was 34, and had had an injury-plagued season when Barca sold him to City two seasons ago. Not for that much money, but with an enormous salary (which City could afford rather more than Barcelona could). He's had two really good seasons. If you think that's good, Cristiano has just scored 20 goals for PSG at the age of 39. Mind you, that's the French league and you have to take goalscoring exploits against that league with some context (q.v. Ibrahimovic, Zlatan).

I honestly can't remember about Zouma. He was at City when I arrived.

So that means Messi can do it on a cold rainy night at Stoke then? :O)

I suppose Munir was a replacement for Ribéry at Bayern.

I guess Ronaldo still had everyone pass it to him. XD

United winning the SuperCup, League Cup, World Club Championship, Premier League (on the last day of the season) and Champions League in the same season isn't actually the best result of this season for any of my teams.

Oh no. That honour goes to Wrexham - promoted to the top flight of English (and Welsh) football for the first time in their history.

Actually Leicester were promoted as well. We won the Championship, they were second. Forest beat Newcastle in the Playoff Final.

Forest finally got their promotion, huh? About time! XD

i guess Football Manager fulfills most people's football fantasies, like Liverpool winning the league, Forest getting promoted, etc. XD

Of course there's the flip-side as well - Spurs just got relegated!
