(FM22) The Impossible Challenge

Recommended Posts

I've always loved FM, since as far back as I can remember. I've never really wanted to post about my saves on here, mainly due to the fact I don't play like others and probably not like people want to see. 

My idea for a save is to play as quick as possible, leave most stuff to my ass man and staff and basically concentrate on signing players, training players and picking the team, everything else from scouting, to press conferences I just can't be bothered with. Sometimes, dare I say it I even instant result games or watch on commentary only, I like to play quick and I want to get way way way WAY into the future.

Something I've always wanted to do was a stupidly crazy, pretty much impossible challenge and that is to attempt to win every competition possible in game.

So I spent hours trawling the game and write down every single competition I could play in. I may have missed one of two but I'm sure someone will point that out.

So here is my save, let's see how much of the above I can win.

Now for a few things:

1) I put State Championships for Brazil as a single competition, there were just too many to write down in the spreadsheet.

2) To make it slightly easier I'm going to say if I win promotion from a league that counts as a successful campaign and will mean it gets ticked off the spreadsheet

3) Like I said previously, I play quick so expect regular updates, don't expect tactical analysis or "this is how I do x". This is how I play and I enjoy it, it's only a game after all.

Wish me luck!

Please welcome Gary Johnson...

I decided, just to make it even harder, to start as unemployed with no coaching badges and a Sunday league reputation. Now it's time to find a job.

Now clearly no laptop or PC could cope with loading every nation so below is what I've started with.

924f614aadebfc6c7d5007c1946bef91.png

I've basically loaded every nation from A-E. The plan is, once a nation is complete I'll remove it and add another one to the game.

My First Job - We're off to Chile

Eventually I have a job, it's taken nearly 4 months of applying, being interviewed and then rejected, I have lost count of how many interviews I've had but eventually a job offer has come about.

Yep, I'm off to Chile with Fernandez Vial, they aren't very good but then neither am I.

The 2021 season has just finished and Vial have just scraped survival.

4d8460f90c29590ea6e7dcea59a50645.png

We have what looks like a half decent squad to work with, the worrying thing is the club were actually predicted to end dead last, lots of hard work ahead.

I'll speak more about the players I have once the new season starts and I expect quite a bit of transfer business.

A few more screen of interest below

2022 Season - Fernández Vial - Pre-Season

As you'd expect I made a lot of signings.

Let's take a run through of my first team squad.

Some really good depth to the squad although we do have a lot of older players in the side. As you can see from how I've separated the players out I'll be going with a 41221 formation, keeping it very basic for now.

7ec77dad8f1421e2276d7f262d3a7fff.png

The season preview says we will be ending in 13th place. The bottom team goes down with top getting automatic promotion, places 2nd to 5th go into a playoff for that final promotion spot.

6aa70bc01f708261bcccbf1cd2f9260b.png

I'm hoping we can push that top 5 but it's going to be tough.

But then you look at how our friendlies have gone and it gives me hope!

Some good wins their including victories over Penarol and Estudiantes (LP), both I'd consider way better than us.

October 2022 - Update

Well that didn't take long.

4 games into October, we've won all 4 and Temuco in 2nd have capitulated.

An amazing turnaround after a mini wobble in July and August.

A great first season and already 1/272 in the challenge!

Not bad for a team expected to avoid relegation, a title win in my first season in charge.

So this just popped up at the bottom of the league table!

Lucky we were 12 points clear at the top.

This is the rule we broke

7390d7ef925d51d9a23c5401e496bece.png

Would have been nice to have had some kind of warning and I can't even find out how short we were, can't really even work out what it means! Same rule applied in the next tier up.
