    Your career thread isn't working for me . . . it says the forum no longer exists, or something like that.

    Anyway, I have found that by checking "add players" at setup, that you have a much more realistic looking J-League. They're all newgens, but I wouldn't know the real players anyway, and it's a world better than having nothing but youth teams.

    Have restarted at Grampus. This time I still have time before the transfer window closes. I started in January in Japan instead of February in the US to help this.

    Good luck fdawsoniv, starting in Japan is different to starting in New Zealand where most saves seem to begin.

    I have edited to links in the opening post so that they work to show my career update threads.

    2015/16 Update

    I started the season at Wanderers under a cloud as my chairman sold some of our key players and best youngsters. We started well but were unable to challenge the big boys and repeat our opening stage success of last season. That led to me accepting a job offer from Club Africain in Tunisia (despite Wanderers' imminent participation in the Copa Libertadores) midway through the season. I guided the team to a 5th placed finish and won the cup (easy as we were already in the final). The club was also already qualified for the African Champions League and we have reached the last eight group stage. Could the first continental trophy be on the way?

    Started this challenge as Automatic.

    I loaded (all first divisions)

    South Africa
    South Korea
    USA
    England
    Australia and
    Brazil.

    Mike Ashley was second to offer me a job (after Ceara of Brazil), so I am the manager of Newcastle United.

    After not playing my Razer82's South America save for about a month and failing to get back into it (don't you hate it when you lose momentum like that?), I thought I'd push my puny laptop to its absolute limit and load the following leagues:

    South Africa (two tiers)
    India
    South Korea (two tiers)
    Argentina (one tier)
    Iceland (one tier)
    Ireland (one tier)
    US
    England (three tiers)
    Spain (two tiers)

    Baritone Trouble is not only an ex-Sunday Leaguer, he also hails from Mayotte, which isn't even a 'country' as such.

    Agreed to apply for all jobs, and accept the first job offer.

    It came from Blackburn Rovers!

    Oh...but not that Blackburn Rovers.

    Unlike all other teams in the South African Coastal Division, Blackburn only consist of 15 and 16 year old newgens. Baritone Trouble has his work cut out if he is not to experience relegation in his first season.

    In addition, it's just me and the chairman here (note to self- ALWAYS tick 'add key staff'!). Hmmm...

    Good luck William and Baritone. Looking forward to your updates

    2016-17 Season Summary
    My decision to move to Club Africain in Tunisia paid off as I completed part of the challenge by winning the CAF Champions League! We also cantered to the League title and came 3rd at the Club World Cup. Time to move on! Full season review here.

    I also had some international success, winning the African U20 title with South Africa.

    Well done Dodgee.

    Here's a brief update for me. I just hit summer break in my first season. As far as transfers go, I concentrated mostly on getting my allowed four foreigners, as there was quite a crop of talent available for free from other lands. I brought in two CBs, a CM, and a ST. The Braziliian CM has been slow coming on but the others are some of the stars of the team, especially my American striker who has bullied his way to 10 goals for the season overall, including 8 from his first 11. He's easily the star of the first half-season (or so, halfway is technically 17 games and we've played 15 by the time break started). We're still alive in the Emperor's Cup, which is good; because everyone is full of newgens the cup is something of a free for all, with lower division squads providing fierce competition.

    We have yet to lose in the league, too, as we lead by 4 points. We were helped by a computer glitch, though. I haven't pinned the source of the problem (though it's much better than it was) but my computer will occasionally freeze and force a hard reset. Well the most recent occasion was during a tricky away fixture. We were over confident, and I had my side playing over aggressive, and this team struggling to fight off the relegation zone stuck it to me. Things were beginning to snowball and we were staring at a 0-3 deficit when the freeze came. After the restart I played more cautiously and was gifted a red card about ten minutes before half which gave us the advantage we needed to come out on top. This turnaround may have greatly affected our season. At the time, we were trying to chase another club on an unbeaten run who had one fewer draw than us. If we'd lost, I'd wager we're still struggling. I know I benefited from a reset, but what can I do? I've had games where I was on the other end-having a great game against a superior opponent, then after the freeze struggling to get a result. If I could stop my computer from doing it, I would. At least it's not like it was with FM09 on my old setup-I could hardly get through a game without a freeze.

    One complaint I have is Japan's disciplinary rules. You get a one match suspension for every yellow card starting with the second. Right now my best CB is on a run of one game off, one game on because of this. I tried to suggest he not throw himself into tackles and he got indignant on me.

    2017 Review
    AFter winning the CAF Champions League with Club Africain, I moved onto Suwon in South Korea. I joined halfway though the season with the team already out of the Asian Champions League but we managed to win the Peace Cup and top the league standings. Unfortunately, the title is settled through a play-off system and we were beaten in the final. However, next season we get a shot at the Asian Champions League as I attempt to add continental trophy number 2 Full Season Report here.

    Just won my first home game of the challenge 8-0 with a completely rebuilt squad against a team who were strong favourites. So far, I am enjoying the South African league.

    To put into context, I have never previously won a game on FM11 by more than a three goal margin, and never achieved as comprehensive a result in fifteen years of playing CM/FM.

    I will be firing this challenge up properly once the last patch is out, got a much faster PC so can hopefully load a few more leagues this time round.

    I think about taking the challenge with these leagues:
    Germany
    England
    Italy
    France
    Spain
    Israel
    New Zeland (sp?)
    Another Oceania country
    Australia
    South Korea
    South Africa
    Brazil
    Argentina
    Uruguay (sp?)
    USA
    Mexico
    All down to the lowest tier that were given by the game.

    I'm in 2037 and myself and a few others who have been running this challenge for a few years have the same problem.

    I began at Winners Park, stayed there for three or so years, moved to FC Cape Town; won the SAFA Cup with them which eventually got me the Kaizer Chiefs job offer. Won every cup under the sun following a spending spree, secured the CAFCL and resigned. No one would take me, who normally would, Ukrainian First League teams, Dutch Eerste Division sides, all laughed me off. Eventually I got a soon to be relegated Israeli Premier League side, kept them up and then out of nowhere Palmeiras offered me a job. Won the league twice with them and the Copa Libertadores, before resigning. This was around 2027. I still was getting laughed off of jobs left right and centre and eventually managed to secure a job with FC Utrecht in the Eerste Division, with whom I have now managed to firmly esablish in the Eredivisie.

    It remains to be seen whether the patch will fix these issues, I doubt it and to be frank it's too ****ing late to make a change now. It's taken 4 months to fix a fundamental aspect of the game, which is shocking.

    If you'd like to b*tch about the patch not being out, may I suggest you take it to general discussion so that you can be flamed and locked like the rest of the people complaining.

    Some interesting choices you have. Good luck.

    I finally start with England, Spain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, USA, Brazil and Argentina. Should be fun I am hoping to do this challenge on this save and do it again with a more varied set of leagues open, I should have time as I will not be buying FM12 until the release of the third patch.

    Has anyone else found that the 11.3 patch causes problems with the O-League when trying to do this? I patched to 11.3 and downloaded leagues for NZ and PNG, but found that no matter who won the leagues, the same teams qualified for the O-League every year.

    Started off and accepted a job where no one goes - Paraguay. I'm only going to summarise a season here but you can follow in greater depths in my thread in the Careers forum Life, The Universe and Football Management??

    The Blackburn board are a bunch of tw*ts anyway. Only having India loaded for Asia will prove a challenge within a challenge!

    I have finally started this properly now that the reputation issues have been sorted, anyone interested can read my thread [url]here I will be posting updates every season or so. I won the OFC Champions League with Auckland City which is very easy now I am at Darlington in the BSP so it will take a bit of time to get myself a high enough reputation to go for trophy number two.

    BaritoneTrouble I like your location.

    How did you get a job in NZ with rep automatic? I have applied for two jobs in NZ, and didn't get any. Did you start in the lower leagues?

    This is a great challenge btw.

    Just applied for the Wellington Phoenix Job as a 2nd Division club in Paraguay was only going to be a stepping stone to bigger clubs and I doubt I'll ever win the Copa Libertadores with them.

    Didn't get the job at Wellington but I applied for more jobs through the rest of the season. I have finished the season with Cerro Cora and will post an update here once I update my career thread. Needless to say it looks as though there's a new job coming for me in the nation I had most fun managing in on the challenge for FM10 - South Africa

    Well. I have decided to give this mammooth task a try.

    I have loaded up leagues from UAE, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Nigeria, Egypt, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, USA, England and Spain.

    Started with automatic reputation and got offers from a lot of Vanuatu based clubs, plus one in Nigeria and Dubai of the UAE.

    So the mouthwatering aspect of spending some quality time in Dubai, polishing my managerial skills, was too tempting to turn down. So I will start this in the UAE, and hopefully work my way round the globe in search for those continental thropies.

    My only hope is that I will be able to do this before FM12 gets out

    My first ever challenge. I thought I would have a crack at this before launching into a long term save.

    Leagues loaded:

    South Africa
    South Korea
    Mexico
    USA
    England
    Germany
    Australia
    Argentina
    Brazil

    My intention is to win the necessary titles around the world before heading to Europe and collecting the Champions League trophy.

    First stop on my world tour is:

    South Africa - F.C.A.K. - National First Division Inland Stream

    I have never managed a team in South Africa, so this will be a test. The team isn't very good, but I'm bringing lots of players in for trials and checking them out. Should have an okay team come the start of the season.

    I have just taken over as manager of Bury and the Mail national team. Should raise my reputation enough to hopefully get a decent job eventually. Making much slower progress than last season in 2018 and only have the OFC Champions League title I think I had two or three by this time on FM10. Loving it so far though.

    Ok, after completing a few smaller challenges I've decided to have a crack at this and have a proper FM career!

    I've loaded a large database with the top 3 leauges of each continent, each with 2 playable divisions (where applicable), being:

    England
    Spain
    Italy
    Brazil
    Argentina
    Uraguay
    South Korea
    India
    Australia
    Mexico
    USA
    Costa Rica
    South Africa
    Egypt
    Tunisia
    New Zealand
    PNG
    Solomon Islands

    Let's hope my laptop doesn't explode with all these leagues!

    I applied for around 80 jobs on day 1, and received quite a few offers from the Costa Rican, PNG and Solomon Islands leages... after some thinking have decided to take charge of As Puma Generalena from the Costa Rican 2nd division, as they were the only profesional club to offer me a job - wish me luck!

    Good luck dude, great to see someone else taking up the challenge. Nice selection of leagues you have loaded, I love this challenge mainly because of the length and it gives me a chance to play quite a few different leagues I wouldn't normally play.

    Another update done in my long long journey. Only got Two continental trophies at the moment by this season on FM10 I had 4 I think, going to take a while and losing in the European Champions League final with Man United was not a good feeling at all lol.

    I enjoy it more than any other save I have had. It is a good long term challenge.

    For different reasons, I have recently restarted my FM experience. This time I took the standard Auckland City. Strong team to being with and followed Acid's advice by signing a few Fancy Dan South Americans. But I guess I'm nothing like the manager he is, because my team SUCKS! We're getting beaten off the park every team, and have no sense of discipline. Clearly I'm not cut out for this crap.

    Maybe I'll try once more after downloading the patch sometime in the future. Since there's a rep problem I guess it won't matter if I do well anyway.

    There is no reputation problem with 11.3 so it is worth downloading that patch. Auckland City should be easy do you download tactics? Just sign Totori and any striker with high pace and winning should come pretty soon. Hope to see you giving it another go.

    I lost the final of the Euro Champions League and left for Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia and easily won the Asian Champions League so that's three down and three to go. Now at Puebla in Mexico who are already in the quarter finals of the NACL so hoping to get another title done then Africa before a return to Europe.

    Just realised I haven't updated in here for ages...

    My game is now in 2025 and I've completed half of the challenge having won the African and Asian Champions League crowns (with Club Africain and Suwon respectively) as well as the Copa Libertadores (twice) during a 5 year spell with Flamengo.

    I've now taken a new job with Spartak Moscow with the task of restoring former glories as they have been a mid-table side in Russia for the past few seasons.

    In the meantime, I've picked up some experience on the international scene as well and I'm currently preparing Argentina for a crack at the 2030 World Cup.

    More in-depth updates can be found in my thread in the careers forum.

    Going pretty well for you DodgeeD. I didn't play my save for ages and although I tried a few times I just couldn't really get into the save again having left it for so long.

    I'm integrating this challenge into my save which I have made a thread about in the careers forum.

    Started unemployed, got the Auckland City job in New Zealand and have just finished my second season in which I won the O-League(OFC Champions League) by beating the defending champions Ba from Fiji 6-1 over two legs. If anyone wants to read more about it they can here!

    My plan is to stick with Auckland and try to do the league and O-League double before I move on and try to complete the next stage in the challenge. At this moment in time I'm not sure what continent I will move to next. I will keep updating in this thread

    I went back to my save and so far I have won.

    OFC Champions League with Auckland City
    Asian Champions League with Al Hilal
    Copa Libertadores with Racing in Argentina
    North American Champions League with Puebla

    I also lost in the European Champions League final with Man United the season before I left for Al-Hilal.

    if AcidBurn doesn't start a thread for it i may, as i'm basically going to be playing the challenge with slight modifications as my main save:

    1) must start as sunday footballer, 2) must use attribute masking, 3) winning the A-league will suffice for Oceania if you don't want to add leagues (i'm not going to add leagues), 4) must do the continents in the order 1-Asia, 2-Oceania, 3-Africa, 4-North America, 5-South America, 6-Europe. in other words, approximately in order of quality (i'd say Asian football on average is better than Oceania but for those who don't want to add leagues, you'll not get hired with no rep in the A-League).

    i'm not starting that save right away though, i always play a season or two as a big team when i first get the game...

    also if i end up starting a thread (which will only happen if no one else can be bothered to kick it off) it's not like it'd break my heart if people play it by other rules than mine.

    My problem was creating a New Zealand file to win the Oceanic Champions League. I thought I made one that worked but it kept crashing so I deleted my thread but I can resurrect it if there is some interest without New Zealand.

    i'm planning on playing that way, more or less, once the January transfer window patch is in. customarily i play a few short games until then.

    I was going to do it in order to, but adding leagues to my save from Oceania so we'd end up pretty much doing the same stuff.
