2021/22 – Premier League – End of Season Review
Twenty twenty-two. The year that everything came right. The year that everything we’d been striving for, happened. In just twenty-one years, the club has gone from not even existing, to becoming winners of the two biggest competitions in European Club football. We became the first, and fastest (as of 3/12/2013) club to complete the FM14 Dafuge’s Challenge!

We were losing games we should have at least drawn, and drawing/losing games we were expected to win easily.

League results vs ‘The Big Two’
Real Madrid (h): 3-1 win
Barcelona (a): 0-0 draw
Real Madrid (a): 1-2 loss
Barcelona (h): 1-1 draw
