They have had some success in the cups winning the betfred cup 3 times and the Scottish cup once. No european trophies but have made the last 16 of the champions league twice now which has seen a sharp increase in funds available. estimated value £470 million ST MIRREN The Simple Digital Arena 10,000 avg att - 9,317 2034/35 5th in premiership 2032/33 4th in premiership.

Arrived at St Mirren via a three year spell in charge of Dundee. notable former managers - Paul Lambert had a 318 day spell after Jim Goodwin was sacked. Jaap Stam came in and was there for two years before being replaced again by the returning Jim Goodwin.

Colin Cameron spent a good four and a bit years at the club before joining Hearts. estimated value £39million (loan debt £24.5 million) Last for just now is CLYDE Broadwood 8,086 avg att- 1,000 2034/35 - 6th in League 1 2032/33 10th in championship. Anton Hendry £875 Tommy Bassey is a 27 year old striker worth £70k. Has scored 37 goals in 174 career games, started his career down at Millwall. Freed by Inverness Caley he signed for Clyde for their season in the championship but only managed 4 goals in 35 league games. The following season back in league one he managed 6 in 30 games. I have started the 2035/36 season and he has 3 in 3 so maybe starting to show his worth. current manager - Gary MacKenzie just arrived at Xmas last season has been assistant manager more than anything else including a spell at Leeds. This is his first gig as a manager. Former notable managers - Gary Naysmith replaced Danny Lennon on the 9th of March 2023 and stayed for 2 years before leaving for Ayr United.

    Noticed a strange transfer this morning, Dunfermline who are 3rd in the championship just paid Aberdeen (9th in premiership) £3 million for a 17 year old regen who on the face of it looks murder.On further investigation they are worth £59 million as a club which is more than 6/7 premier league sides and 6xthe worth of Killie who are currently in the top 6. Must have a sugar daddy owned but finances just say secure. They produced an absolutely brilliant left back in 2022 who they sold for 2 million back in 2025/26 to Watford. He is now valued at £19.75 million and has 63 caps for Northern Ireland. Now wondering what the f**k my scouts were doing when this guy was under our noses. I’m really invested in this save and I’m not sure if anyone will care or not but think I might post every club in Scotland’s current manager and current position and then best position over the past 16 seasons. More for my self but thought all you fm addicts would be interested...maybe. If anyone wants anything apart from what I said above just ask.

    Played a season and a bit since last update. Alloa made it to the premier league it went straight back down with a record low points total. 8 points. Two wins both at home to motherwell and two draws 1-1 at home to Falkirk and 1-1 away to Hamilton. They are now rock bottom of the championship after the first quarter. They have been replaced in the premiership by Cowdenbeath, I had the pleasure of visiting them on the opening day. The flag unfurling was a thing of beauty through the cage. I pumped them 5-0 and sent the blue Brazil fans home thinking they might not beat Alloa’s points total. They could be right as they only have 4 points after 8 games the same as Alloa. Alloa didn’t pick up another point before the split. Scottish teams in Champions league are ripping it up, four teams in this seasons competition are Celtic, Rangers, Hibs and Hearts. Opening two match days have seen Celtic beat Liverpool 5-3 at home and Seville 3-0 away with Inter Milan the other team. Rangers beat Porto away 1-0 and Man Utd 2-0 at Ibrox and Hamburg still to play. Hearts beat Monaco 4-0 at home and then got a good away point at Feyenoord with Arsenal finishing off that group. Hibs have by far the easiest group they beat Fc Kobenhaven 2-0 at home then went to slovan Liberec and won 5-0 final team in that Group is Real Madrid who actually beat Hibs in the last 16 last season last season. I say beat it was more like an assault, 9-2 on agg. Rangers went out 8-2 on agg to Man City at the same stage. Celtic managed the semis before a 6-0 pumping at Anfield saw them lose 7-4 on agg. St Mirren dropped into UEFA cup and were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16. I now have a 33 year old Phil Foden as my only non regen in my squad, Ajer retired after making 472 appearances at the end of the 2033/34 season. I have got the club back on a sound financial footing after doing some wheeling and dealing. My whole starting 11 is 4 and a half stars or 5 which helps domestically, but really want another few champions league wins before I move on club or new save wise. I want to resign and try to get the queen of the south job who are languishing in league 2. That would be a nice way to end the save.

    I always go on holiday between end of season and 9th June til the window opens. So I had my Champions league seeding money and sponsorships I am now only £20 million in debt and they have increased the transfer money percentage to 30%. Little do they know I’m not selling anyone unless a crazy bid comes in. Yeah I have seen teams go into administration but never go bust.

    Season completed and the last piece of news that has just come through is that Stendel has just been sacked as Chelsea manager. Finished a respectable third in the league and was well clear of fourth. Bit of a shock, wonder where he will end up next, knowing Fm probably Elgin. I am in financial turmoil, £77 million in debt and close to doing a Rangers, lost £120 million this season. Board still gave me £30 million to spend in the summer so I spent that immediately on a Bosnian regen from Dinamo who looks a 40 goal a season at this level. Won the domestic treble and set a new points record for the Premiership, 110 (36 wins and 2 draws). My aim is to win all 38 games which was close considering I drew two home games, a 0-0 v hibs and a 1-1 with hearts where they scored in stoppage time. I was trying to do three in a row in the champions league but that was a disaster and after winning home and away against Chelsea I topped the group with 16 points (draw with Seville away). Drew Bayern and took a lead at half time only to collapse and lose 3-1. Couldn’t break them down at home and they scored after 30 mins which basically ended it. Lost the game 1-0 and sulked my way to end of the season. Dundee have done it, no promotion since the start of the game, they tried to chuck it but Ross county and Cowdenbeath just didn’t get enough points at the end. Dundee didn’t win from match day 31 to match day 35 but won the last two against Ross County and Livingston to win by 8 points. At the other end Raith were down a long way out and made no gain from Xmas onwards. Queen’s Park won the play off final against Morton 5-0 on agg. League 1 stayed the same at the top with Brechin winning the league and Stenny second but no promotion from the play offs for anyone. At the bottom Arbroath finished bottom after throwing away a lead on the final day. Montrose winning 3-0 to arbroaths 1-1 was enough to see them finish bottom. They actually entered the last day 1 goal apart. Montrose went down via the play offs losing out to Elgin in the semis who then lost to east fife. Edinburgh City finished bottom but managed to stave off relegation by beating Brora 4-2 on agg. rest of the premiership... So I got the amount of champions leagues spots wrong in earlier post, now the top 6 get European spots with the introduction of the Euro cup II. We have 2 of those available to 6th and 5th. A euro cup group stage goes to 4th place, 3rd place is rewarded with a 3rd round best placed qualifying round entry, and 2nd and 1st are straight in to the group stage. Hearts finished second on goals scored from Hibs. They finished 14 points clear of Rangers in fourth, Falkirk 5th and Hamilton 6th although St Mirren finished with 5 points more than Accies. Partick also got more points than them down in 8th. But they get the European spot and will play European football for a second consecutive season. At the bottom Motherwell lost the battle and went down, Dundee United finished 11th and played Ross County in the final. First leg was a 1-0 away win for United and set them up to stay up and have another derby in the top flight. A comfortable 3-0 home win secured their premiership status.

    Thought I would give the odd update on my save, I’m playing as Celtic, when I started this save it was an edited database with a British cup added to the usual competitions. In the year 2031/32 season now, Domestically has been fairly plain sailing. I’ve won majority of the cups and won every league title. I tend to field a weakened team in the betfred cup up to the final or semi if it’s Rangers hence the odd loss. January window about to slam shut and as it stands I’m 16 points clear of hearts with a game in hand so the league is wrapped up again this year, Rangers are currently in 5th place 6 points behind 4th place Hamilton with two games in hand. This season is the first time Scotland has two group stage entrants in the champions league so Hearts or Hibs look like will battle that one out. Motherwell and Dundee United look like they will battle out 11th and 12th, Falkirk in 10th are 11 points clear already. Rangers in 5th and Falkirk in 10th are only separated by 7 points. I’m going for three in a row in the champions league after basically flopping every year before hand and then it just clicked and started smashing the big teams fairly easily. Every major club lowballing for my regens and unsettling them. 4/5 of them want to leave to play for Arsenal who aren’t even in the champions league 🤷🏻‍♂️. Further down the Scottish leagues looks like Dundee might finally get out of the championship. 7 points clear of Ross County and St Johnstone with 22 games played for everyone. At the other end Raith look gone already 11 points behind Inverness Caley. Queen’s Park punching above their weight in 8th in the Championship. league 1 looks wrapped up by Brechin, 9 points clear of Stenny and 14 clear of Airdrie in third. Would need a massive collapse to not win it. Ayr, Morton and Qos all in mid table in this division. Montrose cut loose at the bottom with Arbroath in second bottom currently. league 2 is by far the tightest division in the country. Peterhead a point clear of East Kilbride and 5 clear of East fife. Annan are fourth with Dumbarton in 5th but only 9 behind the leaders. Stirling bottom just now and in line for the play off. if anyone wants a screenshot of their club let me know. finally a little screenshot of the lowest position I’ve ever seen Rangers on this game. They have improved since this was taken but still struggling to get European football.

    Stendel just steered Chelsea to a second placed finish their highest finish since 2025/26. Hamilton have just finished second in the premiership and with it a champions league spot. They beat Rangers on match day 27 and then beat Hibs 5-0 at Easter road to secure second. Top 6 also had Falkirk in it, Cowdenbeath lost the play off final to Killie 8-2. Partick thistle back in the premier league as champions by a point from Dunfermline. Dundee only managed 4th. East Kilbride are the only team that have entered the leagues, cove got to the championship but have now slipped back to mid table in league 2. Not sure if anyone cares or not haha, just I sometimes find it quite cool to see who ends up where after 10/15 seasons.

    I love football manager for its strange management appointments, this could be the best one for me. After spending 6 seasons as hearts gaffer and winning a league cup in his fourth season in charge Stendel took the vacant Rangers job. Gerrard left in the second season winning a league cup, replaced by Murty for 314 days. Eusebio Di Francesco took the reigns for 5 seasons before being replaced by Stendel. 5 seasons in charge and two cup wins (one Scottish and one league cup). I cannot believe his next step to become the manager of...CHELSEA!!!
  12. Sunday mail linking us with Christophe Berra. Seems unrealistic given his Hearts wage and we are apparently battling with Dundee for him.
  13. The young boy Cameron looks absolutely terrible. So far out of his depth it’s unreal.

    Leigh Griffiths signs for Rangers before the start of the third season. Wonder how the bears would welcome that news. " yer clubs alive mate dinnae beat it"
