Welcome to the WRITTEN IN THE STARS thread. After our most successful clan to date in Football Manager 2016  where we managed to complete 11 seasons(not as many as other clans but we don't like to hol between matchdays as to us FM is more than a matchday experience  ) We are back for FM2017..

After last years success of starting in the Sky Bet Champuonship.  We have again  decided to start in Sky Bet Championship where you can find so many  clubs that have been in the premier league before  like Leeds  who have struggled for quite a number of years to get out of it. This should  prove a stern test of our ability to manage on a shoe string budget or even try to get the right balance in the squad. Also this is a league where  you see a lot of teams you would never of thought would have a chance of promotion get promoted to the the Premier League over recent years.  Although we are starting in this league I have also  decided to load a few other  leagues/countries aswell so if players do well then they can move on to bigger and better things if they choose to in the future. The other leagues that I have loaded are :- Spain's top 2 divisions, Germany's top 2 divisions, England down to the conference north/south, Italy's top 2 divisions.  So with all of these leagues they will offer loads of top teams who are all fighting it out to reach the top in that country which will bring better players some of which will be world class and the chance of getting into Europe and winning the top title. 

This could promise to be the best year yet for the WRITTEN IN THE STARS clan as with starting in such a competitive league which is sure to give clan members even more thrills, spills, relegation battles, top 6 fight , heart ache, you might find a gem that could prove to be a swift piece of business and have the big clubs in the world after him, blow your budget on a rough diamond and good banter (which is always the most important thing). There maybe times where arguments happen due to results and pressure of being a football manager but whatever the outcome it will be an exciting roller-coaster ride that you will want to hold on tight to until the bitter end.

Each clan member will get their team via a random draw where each member will pick a number between 1-24. I feel that by doing this it will be a more even contest but some could find themselves very lucky and have one of the decent clubs who have got a great academy or a very good group of players or even have just been relegated from the Premier League  the season previous and will stand a great chance of getting promoted and even challenging for the title itself or on the other hand some people could be unlucky and get one of the newly promoted sides whatever happens it will just make the game more competitive between each member and of course if you do well you might find yourself in charge of one of the top clubs soon enough however if you do badly you could find yourself in a lower league scrap to get back to where you feel you belong.


Two Days a week 7pm till 12/1am, Days will very due to one member working shifts

Managers and Teams



1) No using FM Scout or cheat machines

2) Committed players only 

3) If you can't make a session, an e-mail in advance would be useful.

4) Start with past experience reputation set to Continental Pro Licence and Regional Footballer  so if we are unfortunate to lose our jobs we have a better chance of getting another job without having to retire our first user given how fm has changed over the years making it tougher to get another job straight away.

5) You MUST Post on forum during following – End of August transfer window, End of January transfer window, end of season review. Everyone can post anytime other than these if they wish to do so.

6) Random Teams selected.

7) No unsettling other Manager's players when you're not actually interested in buying the player

8) Use Skype to chat during times, banter is fine, but NO foul insults, so keep it a friendly game

9) If you get sacked or resign for some reason you must continue as unemployed and apply for the jobs that are available. If you can’t get a job after 1month of applying then you can retire and get a random club one division below.

10). Matches must be played Highlights Mode "Key" or "Only Commentary". Match Speed must be at full or at least near to full speed. Replays must be turned off, you will be allowed to play 3D matches aslong as they don’t slow the game down for other members.

11) "Show Player Pictures", "Show Background Pictures" and "Show Badges" must all be unticked

12). Assistant Manager must take control of friendlies in pre season and timer will be set to 2mins for transfers. During season timer will be set to 1minute unless end of August and January where timer will be set longer (maximum 2mins) if requested by a clan member.

13) If you have a problem with any of the rules, speak to me, don't go whinging about it to other members or keep your frustrations to yourself.

14) If a board takeover takes place and manager gets sacked, clan member may retire and go back to club if they wish.

15) Everyone must use own tactics/training schedules downloaded ones are not allowed.

16) Online shortlists are not allowed as can spoil transfer activities between members.

17) Only 48month deals are allowed max if you don't have the whole amount  for players, No paying clubs over how many goals, international apps, club appearances or any other way  as this way members can avoid paying clubs the transfer fee for a while where as with paying the fee over 48months max the club will definitely get the money and make the game fair between all clan members  

New to WRITTEN IN THE STARS clan will be our own voting system at the end of the season for – Manager of the season, Team of the season, Best Buy of the season and Worst Buy of the season.



Please Send a private message to me with Skype and steam details.

Hope you all enjoy this thread and I hope to keep u posted as and when we go.
