[FM21]I Heard You’re A Player.Nice To Meet You,I’m The Manager.


Recommended Posts

Sometimes the best laid plans go awry!

My original plan was to do a CFG challenge and find continental success but after doing research.Mumbai City are not actually playable and it would take a lot of effort to make an entire league from scratch as well as sort out Continental qualification from said league,this is all way above what I can do with an editor!

The New Goal!

For this save my only aim is to win a Champions League (or Copa Libertadores) with a club from each country that can be played in straight away,This means there are 52 different nations to play in that I need to achieve continental success in.To break this down,the reputation of the different Champions League (and Copa Libertadores) is as follows....

The numbers are based off FM20's rating for each of the biggest continental competition in each region.So this save will be starting off in the North America region.For each region I will be starting off in the strongest nation and finishing in the weakest nation.For North America it looks like this...

To start this save off we will be starting in Mexico,the leagues loaded look like this...

I've got the first six nations added,which are the three North American nations,South Africa,China and South Korea.

England has been added to see changes occur over the years,I don't think I will be getting there for a long time so I want to see something different instead of the same old same old.

A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a simple step,

The lucky (or unlucky) team in Mexico is...

Manager's Thoughts

I can't be unhappy with the random number generator as it gave us a very good pick in Cruz Azul.They are the second favourite to win the league in which they are behind Tigres UANL.I want to make a couple of signings which are a DL and a AMC as they are weaker areas in depth according to the squad depth.I think we should be able to go for both title this season if we can keep together the team.I may look to sell Walter Montoya (on loan at Racing Club) as his contract is up soon and he wants too much money but there isn't really anything to worry about off the field.

On the field I will be either playing a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-3-1-2 as we have the players for either tactic but it will depend on what happens in the transfer window before I make a final decision.I think we struck lucky to land in a position like this and Mexico would be the perfect place to start as they are a stronger nation than the USA and Canada so this is essentially easy diffiuculty!

Nice one, another long-term (!!) challenge this for you. Will be following.

I was going to respond on your earlier post about the CFG idea but forgot to - Mumbai City play in the ISL which is not India's official FA recognized league, that being the I League which I suppose features in FM. There is always someone who does an expansion pack for the ISL though as it's much bigger & with better players. This year, 2 of the top historic clubs of India have actually merged into the ISL as well, so I was half-expecting SI to include that in the game instead.

Thanks!

I did some research into and discovered that problem,I really do hope SI go with the ISL next year as not being able to play as any of India's highest rep teams is weird.With that said,I could look at the editor but I am no expert at it as my limit is activating the league below what is playable :lol:

General - Vision - Facilities - Finances

Season Preview - Expectations

Transfers - Released - Youth

Not a lot to say about the transfers as I was only responsible for the signings of Quinones and Gallardo.Quinones looks to be a bargain at £500k and will be our played in the AML role when called upon and adds depth to the role.Gallardo was a signing we desperately needed as he is a DL and we were lacking in that role,he is the pick for the DL spot in the media dream XI so it is brilliant for us.He did cost us pretty much all of our transfer budget but that is one of our problem spots solved.

Pre-Season Fixtures

No real problems in regards to the performances on the pitch as the players are still getting used to the tactics.The only problem we had during the pre-season was picking up four injuries but we have a decent amount of strength in depth so I'm not too worried.

Manager's Thoughts

Not a lot to say as pre-season was about five weeks for us.In that time we have strengthened our left flank which is great for us as we had problems in that area but we haven't done much else as I don't feel we needed to as we had a good team to start off with.We are still regarded as the 2nd favourites for the title behind Tigres UANL but they have weakened as they have lost two big players in Enner Valencia and Timothee Kolodziejczak,I'm a bit upset Andre-Pierre Gignac is still there but we should be alright.For the season I will be going in with a 4-2-3-1 Tiki-Taka which is what I used during pre-season so the players are more used to it.

Time to get this show on the road!

Manager's Thoughts

Not a lot to say really,we've made an impressive start with two wins from two while scoring seven in the process and have played well.The downside though is that the two teams we played,they are regarded as two of the bottom four teams in the league.Overall though,I am really happy to have made such a good start to life in Mexico.

August brings us five more games and we will be facing CF Pachuca,Xolos Tijuana,Atletico San Luis,Tigres UANL and Atlas Guadalajara,it looks tough on paper but it is still early days so I am not taking anything for granted.The board's expectations is to reach the playoffs so I will be happy if we are still in a playoff spot come the end of August as it will keep the board happy.

We got through August still undefeated as we picked up eleven points from fifteen,not a bad return but I am actually disappointed with it.With the games against Atletico San Luis and Tigres UANL,we should have won both games but our finishing let us down as we ended up dropping two points in both games.We're looking good for a playoff spot but with ten games left to play,there is still time for things to change.

We play four times in September and we will be facing off against Punas de la UNAM,Club Leon,Mazatlan and Club Necaxa.This is actually a much easier month then what we have just gone through so I want us to pick up at least ten points as I see no reason why we can't go unbeaten in September.

Manager's Thoughts

We won all four games in September in convincing fashion but this showed the gulf in quality between the best and worst teams in Liga MX.During the month we reclaimed top spot and opened up a five point lead but it doesn't mean anything as the playoffs are the most important part but going into the playoffs with higher morale could be vital.

We play four times in October and we will be facing off against Deportivo Toluca,Club America,Santos Laguna and CF Monterrey.This is will be our first real challenge of the season as we face off against three of the top five teams.My aim for the month is six points as that will guarantee us a playoff spot.

Manager's Thoughts

What a month that was as we picked up ten points from twelve in which we picked up seven points from the games against three of the teams in the top five.The only downside was the defensive disaster class which was the Club America,we took the lead twice only to be immediately pegged back twice,the first goal was literally a minute after we scored while their second goal was three minutes after we retook the lead.On the plus side,we are guaranteed to finish in first so we need to keep this form up going into the playoffs.

Only two games to play in the league stage in November and they are against Deportivo Guadalajara and Puebla FC,quite a tough way to finish the league stage as they are both in the playoff spots,I want to avoid defeat as I want the morale as high as possible going into the playoffs.The playoffs do start in November,if the schedule is right then the quarter finals and semi-finals (both two legged affairs) will be during the month.

To show how good our attack is,our attacking statistics are extremely out of the ordinary,we manage more shots per match and we are more clinical.

We finished the league stage by picking up four points in our last two games,we were lucky as you can see as a injury time equalizer in the game against Puebla FC saved us from defeat,we should of won the game but we avoided the defeat so that was a good feeling.The playoff quarter finals saw us come up against Deportivo Guadalajara,we were not troubled in either leg as we came out 5-0 aggregate winners to move onto the semi-final.

We only have two games in December at the minute,the games are against Atlas Guadalajara in the semi-final stage of the Liga MX opening stage.Whoever wins the tie will face either Puebla FC or Santos Laguna in the final.I have no reason not to try and go all the way and win the Opening Stage.

Manager's Thoughts

Only the playoffs to talk about for December and I can say it is really good news as we have won the opening stage which means this is Cruz Azul's first stage title since 1998 (when they won the opening stage!).The tie against Atlas Guadalajara was fairly comfortable although the second leg was fun to watch as both teams just went for it and it was a cracking match for the neutrals.As for the final,Puebla frustrated us once again when we played at their ground but we came good in the second leg as we won 3-0 which gave us a 4-1 aggregate victory to lift the Opening Stage title.

January sees the start of the closing stage and we will be playing five times.To kick off the Closing Stage,we will be facing Queretaro FC,FC Juarez,CF Pachuca,Atletico San Luis and Tigres UANL.My only aim is to carry on where we left off from the Opening stage.We will be a bit weaker as som of the loan players are leaving so I have asked the board for more transfer money as I need to get in a AMC and a MC.Fingers crossed I get my way or this could be a very tough fight in the second half of the season.

At £675k,he is already showing that he is an absolute bargain,one goal and five assists in an 8-0 win against FC Juarez.Think he deserved a rating of 10 though!

Look like you are Quetzalcoatl. May you bring victory to Cruz Azul.

I am hoping you take over the NE Revolution when you get to MLS.

Anything less than victory will be slightly disappointing.

It's definitely a possibility but it depends on what is available once I've done in Mexico.I never realised that the MLS has so many teams in it so you have a 1 in 27 chance of me taking over NE Revolution :lol:

The perfect start to the closing stage as we won all five goals while scoring twenty two goals in the process,zero complaints from me as it is still early days in the closing stage but I am glad to see my unbeaten run carry on from the opening stage.Glad to see a couple of new names on the team sheet in Javier Eduardo Lopez (signed on a free) and Bryan Angulo (returned from a loan spell at Xolos Tijuana).

We play four times in February and will be facing Xolos Tijuana,Atlas Guadalajara,Club Leon and Pumas de le UNAM.All I want from the month is to carry on our form from January as the more we win then the more likely we are to finish in the playoff spot and that will be the board's expectations met,

@B.W.G:Beware of all the MLS Rules and Regulations. It is tough to build a Dynasty in the MLS, but with the right DP's and luck drafting and decent Academy players for Backups you should be able to win MLS within 3 seasons with a Bottom Team.

Biggest Problem you will find is the league salary cap of $4.25M/year.

Manager's Thoughts

We had a pretty good month as we picked up ten points from twelve which kept us at the top and we now have a ten point lead over Pumas de la UNAM so a playoff spot is looking very likely at the moment.I have to give Club Leon some praise as they snuffed out our attack and became the first side to stop us scoring this season.Excellent work all around despite the dropped points,the only concern I have is that we have started picking up a lot of yellow cards so suspensions have started creeping in so that is a bit annoying but it helps show areas I need to improve the depth.

March brings us three games and we will be facing Mazatian,Club Necaxa and Deportivo Toluca,this is a easier month for us so I want to carry on our form as we have been brilliant all season.This month will also bring us the first youth intake of the save so it will be interesting to see how the full back and winger mentioned in the preview turn out.

Manager's Thoughts

Top three prospects will be getting signed immediately as they are by far the better players to come through although all three need a lot of work on their physicals but they are young so they will improve as they get older.As for the rest of the players,I will be letting the assistant manager decide after the game between the candidates and the u20s.

A really easy month for us as we won all three matches comfortably and we did so without even conceding a goal.Qualification for the playoffs is nearly a guarantee but we are by far the stand out team in the league this season.

Four games to play in April and we will be facing Santos Laguna,Club America,CF Monterrey and Deportivo Guadalajara.This is tough month as we face three of the top six,Club America have been massively underachieving during the closing stage so I have to be careful in case they decide to turn up as they are a very good team.All we need from these four games is one point as that will guarantee us a playoff spot and that is what the board want from me.

Four more games and four more wins,we secured our playoff spot so that is the boards expectations met so everything is going well for us.We were a bit lucky to come out of the month with a perfect record as Monterrey gave it a real good go and we only won due to superior finishing as it was even in everything else.

Just the one league stage game in May and it comes against Puebla FC,they are a difficult team to break down and are a side who have drawn twice against us in three games so I know how frustrating they can be.The playoffs will also be in May but I have no idea who I will be facing as there are seven teams who can end up in eight place so at least the last league game will be entertaining for the neutrals!

Cruz Azul - Liga MX - Club Takeover - 2020/21

General - Vision - Facilities - Finances

Transfers - Released - Youth

Two players were released despite it saying three,the player in question who was somehow released twice left in June.The first two players on the outside were nothing to do with me while the other seven were my doing,we got £120k in fees despite all their contracts running out in June so I can't complain too much as they were all players who were not going to make it here.On the incoming side of things,we bought in four players for a combined fee of £4.4 million,all four players were bought for the first team to give us more strength in the team.

Unbeaten throughout the opening stage,we topped the league section with a record of 13-4-0,we then beat Deportivo Guadalajara (5-0 on aggregate) in the quarter finals and Atlas Guadalajara (7-2 on aggregate) in the semi-finals.The final saw a tense first leg which finished 1-1,we then put on a clinical performance in the second leg as we won 3-0 to give us a 4-1 aggregate win.

We followed our opening stage campaign by doing the exact same thing and that was going unbeaten,this we topped the league stage with a record of 15-2-0.In the playoffs we beat Club Leon (4-0 on aggregate) in the quarter finals and Tigres UANL (6-0 on aggregate) in teh semi-final.Considering we faced CF Monterrey in the final who finished second in the league,I was a bit disappointed in their performance as we controlled both games and easily won the final with a 8-1 aggregate victory.

Manager's Thoughts

This season turned out easier than I expected as we dominated from start to finish and went unbeaten throughout the entire season so I really could have not have asked for more.The biggest problem is the wages but we are losing one massive wage so that is a relief as some of the players are on ridiculous wages for this level of football.We achieved what I wanted though and that was to qualify for the Champions League next season so that is great for us as I was expecting my spell in Mexico to be short anyway as they are the strongest of the three North American nations.

For next season,my aim is simple and that is to win the Champions League has the board have gave it a required rating so I have to do it or I could be in trouble but the Mexican sides seem to be stronger than the American teams,an example of this is Club America,they came 14th in the closing stage but beat New York City in the final of the Champions League.During pre-season,I want to strengthen four positions,they are GK,DR,AMR and MC,if we can strengthen these roles then we should be able to do more of the same for next season,I have already identified the players for GK and MC so we should be able to get business done but it depends on the budgets we get.

General - Vision - Facilities - Finances

Season Preview - Expectations

Transfers - Released - Youth

To start off with,we released ten players as I feel we had too many players in the team so I wanted to cut it down a bit.None of the players released actually played for us last season so it isn't really too much of a loss.On the outgoings side,we sold one player,he only had one year left on his contract and he wasn't good enough for us so I cashed in on him as he was only going to deteriorate in the future,two left on free transfers to other clubs while five others went out on loan as I am looking at selling them in the future.On the incoming side of things,we bought four players for £10.5 million,all these players are for the roles I wanted so I really happy with what we have done in the transfer window.

Pre-Season Fixtures

I may have made a bit of a boo boo as I didn't organise enough pre-season friendlies,no real complaints from what I have seen as we are missing a fair few players due to the Gold Cup and the upcoming Olympic Games.Despite this setback,I am pretty confident we will do well in the new season.

Manager's Thoughts

Well I've done what I wanted to in strengthening the positions I thought I needed but I have neglected the defensive roles,especially in the full back roles which we only have three players in those roles and with the Gold Cup going on,we are actually at barebones with it,I can only hope the board will put some extra cash in to strengthen these roles.The attacking force is brilliant so I am really happy with what we have at our disposal.Money isn't exactly an issue so with having one of the biggest grounds and extra potential income from TV money due to playing in the Champions League,we should be quite comfortable this season.

My major aim for the upcoming season is to win the CONCACAF Champions League as it has been given a required rating off the board so all my focus will be on that.The playoffs have been given the usual  reach the playoffs expectation so we should be able to do that with ease.We are also in another competition known as the Leagues Cup,it's a sixteen team competition with eight teamsn being from Liga MX and eight teams from the MLS,I'm not even sure how you qualify for it but the board don't care for it,despite that I want to win it as it is more potential silverware.Time to see if we can carry on where we left off from last season!

Manager's Thoughts

Considering the circumstances of having eight players unavailable for all three games due to the Gold Cup,I am really happy with how things have gone as we picked up four points in the league which is a playoff spot and we beat DC United in the Leagues Cup first round.This could have been a bad start for us but we got through it,the only annoyance which came from this month is actually the Chinese clubs,in the last week of July there was just mail after mail of a Chinese club wanting one of my players,it got really annoying but all players are still at the club.

August is quite a busy month as we play six times,five times in the league and once in the Leagues Cup.In the league we will be facing FC Juarez,Puebla FC,CF Monterrey,Mazatlan and Deportivo Guadalajara,we should be back to near enough full strength by the time we place our first league game as the Gold Cup is over,my aim is to be in the playoffs come the end of the month.In the Leagues Cup,we actually have a derby game against Club America in the quarter final,it's definitely winnable but as this is the first game of the month,some players will be rested so it will be a mixed team but I am confident we can go through.

Not yet but if carries on improving like this then it will be sooner rather than later!

No way I would be able to resist the temptation to get his career started with this kid. I'd have him slotted in my starting lineup from the beginning.

He will get some game time,I'll probably look to start him in the league once we have qualified for the playoffs.I will be moving him to the first team as soon as he hits 17 in October.

He looks like he is ready to contribute!

How does he compare with his competition for playing time? 

He is regarded as the 9th best for his role but five of those players prefer to play elsewhere so even as a fourth choice AMC,he isn't that far behind the top choices (1st choice AMC is rated at 3*).I'm actually going to move him into the first team now as we have a busy spell in September as we play five times in fourteen days so rotation will play a part in things.

Manager's Thoughts

We won all five league games as we moved to top of the table although it was a real struggle at the start of the month as we edged the first three games,the last two games saw us thrash the opposition but they were performances we were putting on last season.The Leagues Cup saw us edge past Club America vis sudden death penalty shoot out before destroying Santos Laguna 5-1 in the semi-final as we moved onto the final.

September is quite a busy month as we play five times in fourteen days,four in the league and one in the Leagues Cup.In the league we are facing Atletico San Luis,Deportivo Toluca,Xolos Tijuana and Club Leon,only aim for the league is to keep in the playoff spot as that is the boards expectations.In the Leagues Cup,we are facing Real Salt Lake in the final,they're having a pretty average season as they are sitting just outside the playoff spot in the Western Conference so they are there for the taking and I will be aiming to do so as I want another trophy for the cabinet.

Is Pavelka still playing for you? It's rather bizarre imagining any czech player playing in Mexico.

He's still here and bizarrely no one is interested in him as he has been brilliant for us.It gets weirder as youngsters at the big English teams are interested in joining the club.I don't really see a 18/19 year old English youngster move to Mexico any time soon :lol:

Manager's Thoughts

What a month that was as we won every game and walked out of the month with a trophy.In the league we destroyed all four teams in the league as we opened up a nice little lead at the top,we now have a fifteen point lead over 9th place so with six games left to play,we are looking really good for a playoff spot.Real Salt Lake put up a real fight and was the most difficult match of the month but we did enough to clinch the trophy,the game will be remembered for a debut goal from hot prospect Javier Robles who then received a four week injury after the game!

Four games in October and all of them are in the league.We will be facing Club Necaxa,Club America,Santos Laguna and Tigres UANL,my aim for the month is to secure a playoff spot which should be easily achievable,four points from these four games will sees us with a spot so that is the minimum I am aiming for.
