  1. Aachen FC Season 3 Review I managed to get promotion through the play offs beating SV Sandhausen 5-0 on agg with a 3-0 home win and a 2-0 away win. Final League Table Squad Overview We done much better on the goal front with 2 players getting 10 goals or more with Muja Arifi getting 14 goals and being my top goalscorer. Muja Arifi Transfers

  3. Damnit, thanks to @Shankly84 I now have an unstoppable urge to play in Iceland again. So I will, with Njarðvík. They actually have a pretty great youth setup (but a horribly small stadium!), so I hope I can traverse the Icelandic leagues rather quickly and have focus on Europe now.
  4. Sorry for taking over today. I really do need to post when the season finishes, I just can't wait to get on with the next one. I've got a couple more seasons to update, then I can get back to the game :-)
  5. Marchamalo - End of Season - June 2027 Our form cooled off a bit after the 8-0-0 start, but we finished the year in the playoff spots and eventually secured promotion despite an injury to star winger Abel Limón (24c) during the final match of the regular season. Glad to have earned promotion in our first appearance in the playoffs and the goal for next season is to avoid relegation. Had a core first team this year, but we are struggling with depth. Luckily our schedule rarely involved midweek matches, so the players can handle the load. Finances took a turn for the wo
  6. Aachen Season 3 Youth Intake Another intake without a good striker. Is there anyway of rectifying this ? This is my current Head Of Youth Recruitment so maybe its something that he is doing that is causing me to have a lot of defensively good players but not many good strikers. Anyway here are some of the best prospects this year. Herbert Weigelt(YP17) - German Defensive Midfielder John Omolade(YP18) - German Central Midfielder Christopher Kickermann(YP19) - German Defensive Midfielder Karsten Coenen(YP20) - German Central Defender

  8. @Experienced Defender this where the PI in question is not an absolute condition, like eases of tackles and tackle harder. That PI only has two states. Other PIs, notably those that have an intensity which usually are described with "sometimes" then the PI has an effect on it the counterbalancing instruction, though, "evenly counterbalances" makes it seem like there is a specific value, where it should be more " a tendency to". So say you use the TI Run at defence, which increases dribbling and a player has dribble less on it. Then the Run at defence still affects the player with th
  9. Marchamalo - Squad Update - June 2027 Goalkeepers Defenders Midfielders Forwards
  10. I have actually seen a case where hidden attributes(personality) along with low club reputation affected the perceived potential ability of a player. I was scouting the Spanish U19 Division( A lot of cheap high potential newgens can be found here) and I saw a player from Bansander U19. He had a scout recommendation score of 30 and a very bad personality (Unambitious). That rating was actually an outlier because most of his peers were rated between 10 and 19. I thought it was strange so I decided to take a punt at him. When he arrived at my club his CA was 1 star and his
  11. Both of these things are "cheating" in the context of this thread so you'd hope that would go without saying
  12. I would wait until FM22 to do that, because there is no real information about the "Southern League", for example. Besides, everyone is starting to feel pissed off when I keep bringing updates and they already have a save. ^^ But it is definitely noted down. Thanks. Oh, I thought the only problem with the OFC Champions League was that the Wellington Phoenix were taking part? Then that will be adjusted in FM22 as well, of course.
  13. England 30 Year Special Update As I've now gone through 30 seasons,I thought I'd give a brief update on what has been happening in England and more specifically the Premier League,who has been it and if they have won anything else. There has only been four winners of the Premier League in 30 years which is disappointing but the number of teams who have been in the Premier League has been quite impressive with 31 teams having competed in the Premier League.As you can see Leeds have managed to finish in 2nd place and that happened twice in successive seasons,it's just a shame tha
  14. The Steves are promoted! In our third season we have won the Vanarama North after a tight race with Boston Utd for the title, and next season we'll be trying to survive in the Vanarama National. For a side with an expectation to avoid relegation, it was quite decent. Also, I didn't think it'd be possible, but Tommy Stevens was in even crazier goal-scoring form than last season, and bagged an incredible Messi-esque 47(!) goals in the league.
  15. Finally got out of the Championship hell! Crazy crazy season! Last day on the summer transfer window and Atalanta stole my best player beating the release clause, luckily in the winter one i got a great bargain in Gutierrez. Lets see how the Premier League treat us.
  16. Season 2023/24 Review Well an amazing season it was. I am not sure what was causing it - the change towards a more attacking 4-3-3, more quickness training, key players entering their prime years or using many more youths in order to let older one get more rest - probably all of it and quite some luck. Anyway, in the end we reached 7th place and the playoffs. There we lost to Wrexham 0-1, we played not well and Wrexham was anyway a team we always lose against. Despite this I was very pleased with this season, encouraging signs everywhere. Will be hard to repeat it, but at leas

  18. Second season update. League: Players stats / Transfers So we did much better in league than I expected. 8th spot and again in Playoffs. This time we lost to Sittard, who eventually promoted. We had a really bad run at the end..with 7 games in a row without a win and only 2 draws. We lost again in second round in the Cup, This time to our local rivals ADO. Overal two changes compared to last years first 11. VAN BERKEL started losing ability quite fast and was replaced at LB by VAN KOESVELD.

  21. Arões Sport Club Youth Intake 2021/2022 Being the genius that I am, I completely forgot to take a screenshot of the intake preview, but here they are Got two players with the exact same name, that is always fun. Also, random American! By far the best of the bunch, he is probably a starter next season. Needs to really grow physically, but does not look bad at all. Solid fullback depth right out of the bat. Depth down the middle, altough those defensive stats are atrocious Backup Goalie for the next couple of

  25. A Simple Build, Evolution Leading to Success, Back Three Special In this topic I plan to cover my tactical journey which seen me build some simple tactics to help me utilise the tools at my disposal. Squad building then took place allowing the systems to grow and the reap the rewards. Winning 4 domestic titles back-to-back and breaking record point totals. A flavour is overloads, Set Pieces and varied blocks. The First Build I usually take a real-life concept or specific teams tactics and translate it into FM, this takes time finding the right players but ultimately it really he
  26. Ungmennafélag Njarðvíkur - Season 2022 Review Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances I had forgotten how fast the seasons in Iceland go, but this was a good one! I think this club start out with a very good squad, and also great facilities, so it should be easier initially than many of the other clubs I've chosen before. And it was, actually. We were fighting in the top the whole season through, and in the end we won it ahead of Fjölnir. So we are going up and will compete in the top tier next season already. We are losing money quite rapidly though, so we do need to bring in more mone

  28. All weekend I've been starting saves, messing around with datebase and leagues loaded for a journeyman save and not hardly played because couldnt settle on anything. This looks like something I could get my teeth into. 2 teams I was considering are in the leagues above . I just need to check media prediction if I can be them. Will post up tonight once I set up and decided who to start with.

  30. Panetelikos Season 3 Update I feel like I have stagnated slightly this season, only getting to the quarters of the cup, had a collapse in league form towards the end of the season which resulted in me losing the league which I was very much in the race for. My youngsters are developing very well though so hopefully they will kick on next season, had to bring in mainly Greek players this season as I was short for the registration rules for Europe but they have surprised me

  33. November 2032 Finally, some time to sit and enjoy this! I thought that the away draw at Liverpool was our best ever game, but we bettered that with a famous win at home to the Mersyside giants, leaving the group wide open following a tough away defeat in Spain. We are at home to Bayern and Valencia travel to England in what will decide all. I would expect Liverpool to win, which would mean that, given our likely defeat to the Bavarian side, we'd finish bottom of the group. However, stranger things have happened and we've already massively outperformed my expectations. In th

  35. Yes, you have to switch them from individual to positional before every game. Can be done quite quickly though with CTRL + A, which selects all players and then just clicking the OI button.
  36. Yes, without PIs like 'stay wider', a CM(a) will attack more straight up the pitch. But also, as you recognize, it's not the same as an IF(a), or a second striker, because the CM(a) comes from deeper, has more defensive responsibilities in the midfield and has linking responsibilities. Trequartista can attack the middle but is more a playmaker role, not really a solo-scorer role, and which is hard-coded to roam from position. It is a creative, ball magnet role - teammates are instructed to play the ball to him - that plays no defense. Kinda like an AP but who plays much less defense an
  37. Paços de Ferreira Season 2 Hi so after completing the first part of the challenge in season 1 the Porto and Braga jobs both came up and i applied for both, but they went with more experienced managers so it was another season at Pacos. We got to the sixth round of the cup we won the season before and suffered an embarrassing exit to a team in the division below With us winning the Taca de Portugal in Season 1 we qualified for the Europa League Group Stages with our group containing Fenerbache, Villarreal and Ludogrets. we had some good wins (Beating Fenerbache 4-0 away, Villarreal 3

  39. Decided to try out a save in Denmark, went for FC Nordsjaelland, disabled the first transfer window.. They have an insane number of prospects, really difficult to fend off the attentions of bigger clubs.

  40. I understand that FM definitions will not align exactly with their real world equivalents but they should be at least broadly in line for both the FME and QME. It is important that FME and QME give similar results so that scouting/search comparisons are not rendered useless. I created a new save following the release of 21.4 and ran a full season Premier League using Full Match Engine and again using the Quick Match Engine. I then extracted full season stats for each team and compared the FME results with the QME and 19/20 Premier League "equivalent" stats when available: The game i
  41. It's not about 'handling a game with issues' it is the massive amount of regressions they introduce, plus unfortunate new ones. They broke a shedload of fully functional features (listed above by another user and that's only partial) and did not fix them and will leave them broken for an entire calendar year or more. I guess I don't play enough games to know if this is the norm or not, but no piece of software I've used or been part of making could get away with that. A feature isn't accepted and released to the public if you introduce obvious behavioral changing regressions: FM21 is choc
  42. Football games all have a tendency to be biased towards the English leagues for some reason, even FIFA which is produced in the USA. Every FIFA disappointed me with either the Scottish Premier League, or just rangers and celtic, meanwhile you could play as kingshill primary in the amateur junior third division kent regional primary school league reserves. They wouldn't even have Serie B but have Vanarama south northwest east street, house numbers 1-5.
  43. In the next update I'm going to look even more deeply into how well the AI 'manages' resources. I've put together a couple of additional measures to do this: The first takes each club's reputation each season and compares this to their Genie Scout team rating in order to provide a reputation/quality correlation; basically a figure that demonstrates the relationship between these two numbers: are clubs building teams that are commensurate with their reputation? Are they using their reputation effectively to become better? The second is a 'return on assets' calculation which takes th
