  1. Great work. I love these experiments. Nice to see Norway winning the World Cup twice. I see that there is not much variety in the hosts nations of the World cup. It should be more countries that should be able to host the World Cup.
  2. Just wanted to share my experience with the game. I haven't played for a while, I think it is too time consuming to play through seasons as a club team and I was fed up with all the goals from crosses. But yesterday I started a game managing England only. I really will recommend playing as a national team if you want the FM experience, but don't have time to play many matches every season. But, I have to say that I have seen a lot of positives in this save. My team plays exciting, fluent football. Lots of goals coming from clever moves and smart through balls, driblings and not that many crosses. My team (England) is fun to watch and I enjoy the save. I start to get fond of and attached to those pixel men running about again, and for me, that is what have made FM and CM fun, you see some individuals stand out that you care for. My defenders play with their hearts on their sleeves and make last gasp tackles, and Jamie Vardy, he is so Jamie Vardy. Running at the defenses and scores a lot of goals. He is well replicated I think, I even humm Jamie Vardy's having a party when he is scoring:lol:. Anyway, keep working on this guys and I am sure it will bring joy to many gamers in the next editions. I acknowledge the fact that for me the overwhelming amount of information in this game makes it more difficult to comprehend and you get unsure of what you do right and wrong. and that may make it a bit exhausting for some. But now I took another approach I have had an excellent experience and enjoy the game. So my plan is to take England to a couple of championships and then move on to another country. I am happy now (maybe because I am winning;)), but seriously, it was nice to get my faith in the game back, and experience a variety in how the goals is scored. Wish you luck and all the best working on further editions.
  3. :applause:This is so great. Had to catch up with the story a couple of pages back, but what a finale!! Congratulations, I forgive you for not taking the Hibs job:D keep on going, Hamish grandson is waiting to keep the family legend going.
  4. Bad luck. But soon you will make it in Scotland, I am sure. Good luck getting the Thistle job. Are you close to eventually get a shot at one of the Old Firm clubs you reckon? Noticed that Rangers were mid-table.
  5. Lots of twists and turns. Good luck with the Dons. Hope you can emulate old sir Alex with them. If not, I am still crossing fingers for you to pop in to Easter Road and make them a world force before you take Scotland to new heights.
  6. Just finished reading all of the eleven pages, and I have to say I am blown away. Amazing storytelling, and especially your career with Scotland was a thrill to read. I also love how you have presented the updates and the games, just excellent. I am from Norway but spent a year in Edinburgh in the ninetees, and after that I have a lot of love for Scotland. I always check out how they are doing in the world- and euro qualifiers. And as my own country, they seldom do well:D. So then it was nice to see you transform the country to a major force. Having less and less time to really delve into saves, mostly playing FMT, I will say that you have shown that you can have a lot of fun with the full fat FM managing a national team. So I will do an attempt with Norway, inspired by you. Wish you all the best in your career, and as a Hibees-fan I didn't like you managing Hearts, but thankfully it was short lived. Now hoping that Archie can get a job at Easter Road and make the Hibees the biggest club in Scotland. Good luck!!
  7. Tough season, DJB_1990, but well done beating Odd. Hopefully you can bounce back next season.
  8. My defensive midfielder has just sat a new record for bookings and sendings off. His name is Aaron Lawless. Very fitting name.
  9. I have been with them for 15 years. Finally progressed in Europe and lots of money in the bank. Still no sign of being pro.
  10. I'll try again. Is it impossible to reach professional status in FMT? I play in the welsh league, have 4 million in the bank and it is not even an option to ask the board about it. What does it take?
  11. Taunton - Pen-y-Bont - Season review - 20289/30 - Welsh Premier League - FMT League: "]Champions!! "](Positions) Aberystwyth paid the price for our treble. ("]theWord cup) ("]JD Welsh Cup) Took some tome to get into the swing of things, but once the train started running nothing could stop it. Our sixth league win and fourth treble was comfortably sealed. The team is going through a much needed generation change and it was nice to see the young guys getting in to the team and keeping the more experienced ones out. No luck again in the 2. qualifying round in Europe. We get very difficult teams I reckon, this time we met Red Bull Salzburg. Lost 3-2 at home and drew 1-1 away without being completely outplayed. Gives us a bit of hope for the future. Best player: "]Andrew Bamford: When he first got into the team he took his chance well and was the second half of the seasons star performer. Top scorer: "]Josh Edwards: Our inside forwards scores a lot of goals. Next season: No sign of getting professional. Maybe it will never happen.

  12. Alex. Try FMT like me. It takes you faster through the seasons, but because of some limitations make it a different, but just as challenging experience.
  13. Taunton - Pen-y-Bont - Season review - 2028/29 - Welsh Premier League - FMT League: "]Champions!! "](Positions) Another treble. ("]theWord cup) ("]JD Welsh Cup) Another clean sweep domestically. It is getting a bit boring because we are pretty comfortable but we can't progress in Europe, so its a bit of a waiting game. I refuse to invest in the club to save up money for being pro. But on the other side, it is always nice to win things. My target is to emulate TNS with 15 league wins. Still some way to go. This year it was Viktoria Plzen that trashed us in the 2. qualifying round. Best player: "]James "]Lovell: New entrance for the first time in seven years. Lovell scores a lot of goals and provides solid performances. Top scorer: "]Shane Jenks-Gilbert: Back on the top. Scored one more than Lovell. Next season: Sigh. Keep on fighting in Europe.
