    I think I have finally got into FM18 and really want to do a youth only save as have never done one. That said, I am not sure I have the patience for it. I will try my best but there you go. I won’t start a thread until I have completed a season to see how I get on. I have found a club in the third tier in Romania who have an exceptional youth academy, using claassen’s download. Or maybe Andorra. Or the Faroe Islands. Any ideas?

    Leaving Review Season 2018/19 NAC Breda Champions League - A tough draw in the playoff for the group stage, FC Basel, though we managed a credible 1-1 draw away in Switzerland in the first leg. I leave before the second leg kicks off. League Table - No games have been played yet. League Fixtures - No games have been played yet. KNVB Beker - No games have been played yet. Johan Cruijff Schaal - A fabulous performance saw the club win the season opener, beating AFC Ajax in their own back yard. Pre Season Friendlies - All home games this season, against bigger clubs, with mixed results. Squad - I leave a strong, if a little small, squad. Transfers - Eight new arrivals, mostly loans and free transfers, with quite a few departing, the majority of which are youngsters on loan. Finances - I leave the club in a very healthy state financially and with potential Champions League money to come, the future bodes well.

    Unexpected, though too early in the save, so I have declined the offer.
  7. To “complete” this save, your aim should be the Club World Cup...
  8. All the best. Get to Tonga. Twelve league games and that's it. You would get twenty seasons done in a day.
  9. [FM17] A European Sojourn

    End of Season Review Season 2017/18 NAC Breda Europa League - After an excellent group stage - we won all six games - it was very disappointing to go out to Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyev in the first knockout round, losing on the away goals rule. League Table - After a slow start, winning only once in our first four league games, we recovered somewhat and overachieved. League Fixtures 1 & 2 - Overall, a fine season. KNVB Beker - We retained our trophy, beating third tier Fortuna Sittard in the final, though they took us to extra time. The so called "big boys" were again eliminated early. Johan Cruijff Schaal - Due to our cup win last season, we played in the season opening game, against league champions PSV. Unfortunately, it was not to be as we went down 2-1. Pre Season Friendlies - I played just the six games this season, all at home against bigger sides, with mixed results. Mid Season Friendlies - Three games were played during the winter break to keep the players fitness levels up. All three were at home against bigger sides. That said, it was still disappointing to lose two of them. Squad - We are still too reliant on loans, but overall the squad is good. Transfers In 1 & 2 - I brought in a huge amount of new players, primarily young players with potential. My South American scouts found a lot of Brazilians available for next to nothing, largely from Santos, so I signed them. A lot won't make the grade, but if just one does, then it is worth it. Transfers Out 1 & 2 - Due to a lot coming in, a lot went out. Finances - A very healthy bank balance, largely due to a good run in Europe and retaining the domestic cup. Key Players Olivier Ntcham - Young French midfielder signed on loan from parent side Manchester City for the season. Georges-Kévin Nkoudou - Cameroonian international winger signed on a season long loan from Tottenham Hotspur. Of all of our loanees, he performed the best. Rodrigão - Brazilian striker signed from Santos in his homeland for £725,000 during the summer. A good return of 23 goals in his 40 games. Martin Ove Roseth - Now a full international, the Norwegian centre back continues his good form from last season and was a star player for the club this season. Kenneth Agu - The teenage Nigerian right back is the club record purchase, costing £1.2m. After a slow start, he become a regular fixture in the side. Now a full international, he has a big future. Next Season A push for Champions League qualification again, as I feel a title challenge is a step too far at the minute.

    Youth Candidates Day Season 2017/18 NAC Breda Not too bad an intake, with five players going to be offered professional terms. The three best are listed below.
  11. [FM17] A European Sojourn

    End of Season Review Season 2016/17 NAC Breda League Table - It looked easy enough, but we had a poor start, getting hammered in our first two away games at Achilles '29 & FC Dordrecht (losing 4-1 & 5-1 respectively). We did recover somewhat, though. League Fixtures 1 & 2 - On the whole, an excellent campaign, depsite the poor start away from home. KNVB Beker - The luck of the draw, together with the traditional Dutch powerhouses going out early on, saw us romp home and win the cup. We did eliminate five top flight sides ourselves. Pre Season Friendlies - The usual mix of larger and smaller clubs. We had changeable fortunes, though the 6-6 draw with Bayer Leverkusen was mental, especially as we were 4-0 down at half time. Mid Season Friendlies - Just the three games as I kept the players fitness ticking over during the winter break. The win over Ajax was the obvious highlight. Squad - Good enough for a mid table finish, time will tell what an added European campaign will do to us. Transfers - A few arrivals, some of which played very well indeed. Not as many departures as I would of liked, however. Finances - A good cup run has swelled the bank balance somewhat. Key Players Matty Cash - Young English central midfielder signed on loan from Nottingham Forest. Brandon Barker - Exceptional young winger who is with us on loan from parent club Manchester City. Really hoping we can keep him for next season. Jai Quintongo - Teenage Scottish striker signed in the January tansfer window from Morton is his homeland for just £160,000. He took a while to adjust, but he played well enough in the end. A hat trick in the cup final was his finest moment. Leonel Bontempo - Argentine left back signed on a free transfer in September. Excellent throughout. Martin Ove Roseth - My record signing at £350,000, the teenage Norwegian central defender arrived from Molde in January. Not sure how long I can keep hold of him though. Next Season Mid table safety and a good European adventure is the aim.

    With the help of the Skinning Forum, I have eliminated the capitals at the top of each page in FM18 as this is a major bugbear with me. May try another game of FM18.
  13. Damn it man, you always get me itching to start a game similar to yours, even though I don't have your patience.
