    Well, first game of the season, was away at Deportivo La Coruna, and after going 1-0 down after 36 seconds, it wasnt looking too great.

    Deportivo vs Tenerife.

    It took a bit of getting used to but I think I'd find it hard to switch back now.

    Not displaying for some reason.

    I'm wondering how long it'll take to try and do the Spanish 4th/5th/6th tiers. Might just do the first inactive level.

    We've had a shocker now, after our 8-2 win over Depor, we lose 2-1 at home to newly promoted Hércules.

    Right, Im in mid-September 2010, and I checked out the transfer list, which has given me a dilemma.

    If you had Juanfran (who has only just signed), Facundo Bertoglio and Gonzalo Fierro (also recently signed) as your current right wingers, would you sign Diego Perrotti for £4.3m?

    I would, but only if I could sell some of the others.

    Hmm, this is confusing. All leagues are in the DB, but many teams are missing, and some that are there shouldn't be, according to wikipedia.

    37 divisions to go through in the 5th tier (assuming 4th tier are all right - only 18 there)

    Man, such a difficult call, Juanfran is my record signing and star player in the squad, so he wont be going. Bertoglio is a young player with apparently more potential than Juanfran, so would be hard to ditch him. Will happily sell Fierro, I had him on loan season 1, he got 17 assists, so snapped him up for free, to be a back up, but I forgot to register him (he was injured on day of registry, and as I have unavailable players hidden, didnt assign him a number )

    I think I'll have to pass up the opportunity

    How can I win 8-2, then lose 2-1 and 3-1 to Hercules and Bilbao

    All of that effort to no avail, he rejected my contract (the ******* )

    Just about scraped a 1-0 win over Valladolid, 77th minute OG saved me.

    Starting to get very tempted to head back to Russia for another crack at Rubin.

    Bayern Munich isn't as easy as it looks Yes I won the league and cup double, but the money I lose per month is amazing, and I had to sell a lot of players this season. Thank God Toni is gone though.

    Having to look through loads of sites in Spanish, all which seem to contradict each other. Will do my best to just get the right number of teams (will have to make some from scratch as they aren't in DB)

    Freedom for Tooting & Mitcham! - it is all in here but I'll try to summarise it.

    My aim was to win a major international competition with only Tooting & Mitcham youth products.

    Jon Punal was signed at the age of 15 and nurtured to greatness.

    He was the last player sold as we made our final move to all-T&M.

    He signed for Man City for £80m at the age of 26.

    He scored against us to knock us out of the World Cup in 2050, at the age of 34.

    I'm thinking that this may be overly ambitious.

    Someone has made a basic setup using the existing divisions though.. Could just play that.

    Reading through that thread has inspired me to start my first ever proper lower league game.

    I am going to start a new game using the level 11 database as Backwell United, a team that plays their games less than 10 minutes from my house, in the English Somerset County League Premier Division (level 11).

    I have never had a lower league game before as the terrible players just annoy me but I am determined to stick with this one.

    Lol, 3-0 away win against Juventus in the Champion's League playing as Barca. Surprisingly, Messi was awful and Pedro/Bojan were the players who shined.

    Just recently beat Lyon in the CL semifinals with my Udinese team in 2014. 1-1 at home while being pretty much outplayed, away leg my LB Bocchetti gets red carded after after 18 mins. Game over, i thought..=(

    When final whistle rings Cardozo and my wonderkid regen (born and raised in the U20s) had scored to make it 2-0. =D

    Barcelona awaits in final tho.. It stops there, i think.. =( Any hints/tips how to break up their play?

    Nearly lost to Malaga of all teams. They scored with their only shot on target half way through the first half, and about ten minutes later, Pedro got sent off. Entered half time one zero, gave the team the team talk, and around 60 minutes in, Ibrahimovic equalized. Then, 76 minutes in, Messi scored to make it 2-1, and in stoppage time, Henry secured the result with a placed shot.

    The commentator said 'Guardiola's boys never looked like losing' at the end of the game, and that made me angry, since I was as nervous as hell at half time.

    EDIT: Forgot, their goalkeeper was MotM

    I (Udinese) ran over Barca in the 2014 CL final (despite missing four key players) but couldnt convert. Lost 1-0 to a crappy Pique header from 2 yards making up their only scoring chance, due to a mistake by my 18 year old rookie defender who had to step in =(. Valdes had 7.5 rating while my gk was at 6.4.. FM sucks atm...

    Managed to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League Final 3-1 using a neat little counter attack tactic. They dominated the game but we were just to good on the counter.

    Also managed a 5th consecutive EPL title. But still have not won a FA Cup.

    It's a new season now and I'm about 7 games in.

    Just played my 500th overall game. But I've got £870,000 for wages left along with about £68million to spend.

    My squad however is beastly. And I recieved a 193 PA regen from my youth academy recently, my youth facilities aren't even at max quality yet.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Can anyone help me with this question though, "If I set a league to 'view only' then do I recieve regens from that country or what effect will it serve within my game?"

    Yeah, I think 'view only' gets you regens, but you can't manage there.

    Anyone have a good set up for Messi? Can't seem to get him to score.

    This doesn't make any sense.

    My regens with PA's of 200 are rated at levels that aren't accurate.

    One of my Central defender regens potential is some way off reaching the level of Monti, my central defender with 199 PA. How can someone with a PA higher than them be some way off having the potential to be better than them?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Can someone search for Alemao Jiminiano on their game and see if he exists?

    Someone on a different forum is convinced he isn't a regen yet I am. He looks pure quality though.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    My god Pjanic just headed the ball blatently into his own net from a corner... He was facing the wrong direction

    I've also noticed the scouts might be off a bit. Tho i'm not using any scouts or whatever to find out their PA most of my young promising players stop developing at like 18 according to my ass. manager, yet their continuing to develop nicely.

    Couldn't find that player u were talking bout either, btw..

    Well this doesn't add up.

    This guy took a picture and the player didn't have a regen picture yet he had generated pictures turned on... Thus meaning he must be a real player...

    Just knocked 5 past Sporting, Henry got a hat trick and Messi even managed to score one!

    Hmm, even having set my target to push for promotion, our budgets aren't enough for me to be able to adjust to reduce the wage deficit.

    At least I'm pretty certain this team has enough brilliance to perform above all expectations.

    Xavi just got his 3rd free kick goal of the season in a 3-0 win over Sevilla in which Messi scored twice.

    Could be one of those generated players made at clubs whom are lacking players in the database and thus can't play competetive matches.

    They tend to not have regen pics, but rather blank's. I have seen one really really good generated player from a lower league Italian club whom basically won them some U-20 tournament with scoring 10 goals in the tournament! (first season as well)

    Having finally won the CL in FM10 in my last season of contract with Lazio I've finally allowed myself to enter international management.

    I accepted Spain's FA proposal, not because they are 2nd in FIFA world rankings, but because all the major real players are about to retire and Euro 2024 will prove quite challenging with Spain's lack of decent midfielders and strikers.

    In the club management area, midtable eternal strugglers Hertha Berlin came calling. They're paying a pittance, but I fancy a spell in Germany.

    Really can't get into a game at a low level. Holidaying to the end of the season then adding a new manager.

    Anyone suggest a team higher up? (CCC - L2)

    I'm thinking holidaying it might be a bad idea - taking at least 30 mins per month.

    You loaded 100k+ players didn't you? That'll be why

    I think I loaded about 20k, game flies by

    I can never decide which approach to take, and always go for the wrong one.

    Think I'll start over with a sensible amount. I think I'll get into a game better if it's quicker to do so.

    Which ever you pick you'll regret it

    It is hard to find the right balance between depth and speed. For me, speed wins every time.

    I always want depth but my PC disagrees.

    I think I'll settle for 44k, which is essentially large DB with 20 leagues.

    Still too many..

    I got 300k players loaded!

    It is a bit slow, but I do lots of stuff while it's loading. Thanks too Windowed mode! So it doesn't bother me.

    I do want to try a lower league game at some point too. I am thinking Dudley Town. Any other suggestions?

    I will need to load a new game for this though, so I will take the suggestion of loading small, will probably load this: Italy to Serie C2, Spain to Second Division B, France to CFA, England to bottom, and various arrangement of leagues from elsewhere in the world.

    Can't seem to get rid of anyone. I've signed a great bunch of (mostly attacking) players, but the players they replaced won't budge, and due to squad registration are essentially useless.

    Yeah, they don't do it for me. The game was going too slow too.

    Pontevedra 4-2 Ferrol

    Shocking play by Lauren cost us two goals. Derlei, once a £5mil striker, is looking great with 3 assists and a goal in 2 matches.

    Bought my PC around this time last year.

    It isn't that slow, between days, i'd say about 1.5 minutes usually (sometimes they go really quick like 30 secs) to 5 minutes max(for the longer loads).

    Loading the game at the start was a bitch though. I think I waited 3.5 hours for my game to load. I just leave it on during the night for now on now.

    Odd that. About 3 years back Illiasu Shilla's (the free agent defender at the start) consortium took over Man United... I don't even remember any messages in the news about this.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It's January 1st 2018 now though and my players just wona few awards and claimed runners up in alot aswell... Still tons of interest in my players though. I'm the biggest club in the world atm yet they're still flattered by moves to clubs like Man City

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The 2018 world cup is approaching and I still haven't got an international job... So I'm probably going to miss yet another world cup

    Bribing the ref I bet

    First 3 games of the season, all wins, 5-1, 2-0 and 1-0, against Rostov, Spartak Nalchik and Dinamo Moscow. Though I did lose the Super Cup 1-0 to CSKA.

    Still, decent start.
