  1. On the note of FM20 with it being around 4 weeks away (I think?) got me thinking about the thread. As said previously I'll be back in this thread next season, already know who my team will be (not the, I assume, popular side in Palermo) and wonder what people would prefer: A new thread just for FM20 updates A new thread for FM20 but also let's people post about older versins if that's what they're playing Just continue from this thread with probably updating the first post Am happy to do the thread again this year in whatever way people would prefer Also @XaW how has running a custom database gone? Still not sure about including custom databases personally as there's no way of knowing really if a side has been boosted by the user to make the challenge a little easier with a custom one is there? As you might be able to tell I don't really use them often enough to know much about them
  2. Yeah saw this, it was already in the game but this just let's you know you've lost someone. You can't do anything about it so just seems a feature designed to annoy those of us that play it like this Was announced on either Miles or the official twitter account last week I think?
  3. Turning pro will be massive help @XaW good going so far though.
  4. Season 2033/34 AC Milan League - tougher battle than it looks on paper, we lost our 5th game of the season and then went unbeaten for the rest. Juventus were just as good for the most part, in fact we won every game for 3 straight months in October, November and December and were still 2nd. Came down to our home game with Juventus with 7 games left, we won and they fell apart losing 3 and drawing 1 of their next 5 to hand us the league. Champions League - another tough group (last year had Liverpool & and Barcelona, this year Arsenal and Real) but we actually won the group setting up an game with Valencia, we didn't turn up away from home and the 1-0 home win wasn't enough, I continue to struggle in this comp. Coppa Italia - Juventus in the 1/4 finals was tough but that aside was an easy walk to a double Transfers - I don't often show these because this far in the game no one will know who anyone is but this was a great window for us, 5 of the signings were for the future of the club but the main one was Falcao. He was key for us this season and I spent the summer trying to get him and finally got him on transfer deadline day Career Progress Season Team Country League Position Notes 2018/19 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 3rd Lost in playoffs 2019/20 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 1st Promoted as champions 2020/21 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup runners up 2021/22 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup winners, left on 11/3/22 2021/22 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 2nd took over in 5th on 11/3/22 2022/23 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 1st League & Champions League winners 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande China CSL 1st Took over with 13 games to go.

Also a world cup year so should be some international jobs free soon
  5. Season 2032/33 League - we closed the gap on Juventus but still fell well short, we actually did well against them (2-1 win at home and 1-1 draw away) but we just failed to beat some of the lesser teams, especially away from home, still though going from 30 points behind Juventus to 9 (with them getting 3 more points this year vs last) is progress. Cup - Really annoyed to go out at the 1/4 final stage. We just never got going and paid the price Champions League - a great run really, finishing 2nd on a group with Barcelona and Liverpool was encouraging, winning the home leg of the knockout gave me cause for hope but they were better than us in the 2nd game and we got knocked out Overall a decent season (my first for years with not trophy) but still lots of room to grow, I'm slowly (too slow for my liking) bringing the average age of the squad down and bringing in younger players and that will continue over the summer but before next season I have a trip to the USA with Mexico for the... 2033 Gold Cup Group Stage Mexico 2-0 Jamaica - a good solid start from us in what on paper was our toughest game of the group stage Martinique 0-3 Mexico - another breeze for us, 2 early goals and an injury time winner sent us through with a game to spare Curacao 0-1 Mexico - we changed the entire starting 11 and it showed as we struggled to break them down, the winner coming in the 80th minute 1/4 Final Trinidad & Tobago 0-2 Mexico - tougher than it should have been, we hit the woodwork 3 times as we tried to breakthrough, 2 late goals saw us through though Semi Final El Salvador 0-2 - as injury and fatigue started to affect us I rotated half the team but we never looked in trouble, 2 goals before half time meant I could rest some more players after the break with the final just 3 days later Final USA 0-1 Mexico - beating the hosts in the final (first time in 10 years they had made the final) with an early goal, from there we hung back and tried to pick them off on the counter, we never got the 2nd but it didn't matter as we were never troubled and ended up as Gold Cup winners Career Progress 2018/19 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 3rd Lost in playoffs 2019/20 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 1st Promoted as champions 2020/21 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup runners up 2021/22 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup winners, left on 11/3/22 2021/22 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 2nd took over in 5th on 11/3/22 2022/23 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 1st League & Champions League winners 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande China CSL 1st Took over with 13 games to go.

During the season I turned down the chance to take over Liverpool as felt I could win the league with Milan, we then fell apart a bit and finished 9 points off so maybe I was wrong. During the summer the Man United job came up and I did apply but didn't even get an interview which was annoying so now I want to take over City in England As a result I've got a year left on my deal here in Italy so hoping I can win the league here then move on next summer.
  6. Season 2031/32 League - Took over with 15 games to go and the side sitting in 9th place, we only lost 2 games but also only won 6 (and only faced 3 sides that finished above us) so there's a lot of work to do here. We were already out of the cup and had fallen into the Europa League after being in the Champions League. Europa League - a good run to the final here as bigger and better sides fell away while we got through and this quickly became our best route into the Champions League and it proved so with us beating fellow Italian side Sassuolo in the final Career Progress Season Team Country League Position Notes 2018/19 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 3rd Lost in playoffs 2019/20 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 1st Promoted as champions 2020/21 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup runners up 2021/22 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup winners, left on 11/3/22 2021/22 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 2nd took over in 5th on 11/3/22 2022/23 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 1st League & Champions League winners 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande China CSL 1st Took over with 13 games to go.

  7. Season 2031 Flamengo State Championship - Started slowly here as team got used to my tactics and I figured out my best side, most sides were cannon fodder and we won it with ease as expected League - this was a proper battle, us and Palmeiras pulled away and were neck and neck all season, they stumbled with 5 games to go but we lost our 2nd last game (both of us lost away to Internacional) meant we had to win the last game to secure the title. We ran out comfortable winners to win the league at first attempt Cup - A comfortable run and win here, only issue was the fixture congestion, we played at least once (often twice) in every midweek from June to October because of our run here (in fact we ended up play 77 games this season) Copa Libertadores - Another comfortable run here aside from the first leg of the semi final (why is Internacional away such a bogey ground for me?) and the final was a tough game with us going down to 10 men on HT with the score 1-1 but some great counter attacking won us our 4th title of the year Club World Cup - Didn't expect much here but with Real Madrid losing their semi final it opened up for us and was a very comfortable title Career Progress Season Team Country League Position Notes 2018/19 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 3rd Lost in playoffs 2019/20 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 1st Promoted as champions 2020/21 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup runners up 2021/22 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup winners, left on 11/3/22 2021/22 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 2nd took over in 5th on 11/3/22 2022/23 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 1st League & Champions League winners 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande China CSL 1st Took over with 13 games to go.

I have a year left on my deal but there's nothing to left to win here so will be looking to move back to Europe. Also got the Mexico job so may resign from Flamengo and just do Mexico till a good job turns up
  8. Been a couple months since I last played FM as got a bit bored but I fell over recently and managed to damage my ankle so am on rest duty for a bit and started to play FM again and refound my big for it. Thankfully I kept this save and loaded back up to have a play around and I'm back! When I left I was manager of Lyon having just won the league. Midway through the following season a new opportunity arose that I couldn't say no to and I became the new manager of Flamengo. Before I could take over though I had the 2031 Asian Cup with South Korea Group Stages Uzbekistan 0-2 South Korea - a comfortable start for us with the goals coming from a CB and our LB, not the most likely of sources South Korea 2-0 Vietnam - another nice win for us with our striker getting in on the act with both goals Indonesia 0-5 South Korea - massive win for a rotated side saw us easily win the group 2nd round UAE 1-1p South Korea - a real struggle, lots of chances but most from long range while they scored their only shot, we won 3-1 on pens but this should have been an easy passage through 1/4 finals South Korea 4-0 Syria - this was more like it, I lost my 2 wide men to suspension here but their replacements came in with Ahn on the right scoring 2 and Lee on the left assisting 2 so they played themselves into the team here for the semi final Semi finals Australia 2-5 South Korea - this should have been the final, the 2 best sides in the comp but we blew them away with 4 goals in the opening 28 minutes making the 2nd half a formality. Ahn scored 3 from the right making me look stupid for not playing him from the start of the tournament Final South Korea 1-0 China - this was closer than I;d have liked, a first half goal from Ahn (what a clutch player he was - 6 goals in 3 knockout games) saw us through, was also fun coming up against several players in the China squad that I gave debuts too back in my Guangzhou days I resigned after the tournament to focus on Flamengo/wait for another international job, though I'm pleased to knock another trophy off the list Career Progress Season Team Country League Position Notes 2018/19 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 3rd Lost in playoffs 2019/20 Tshakhuma South Africa 1st Division 1st Promoted as champions 2020/21 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup runners up 2021/22 Tshakhuma South Africa Premier League 4th Cup winners, left on 11/3/22 2021/22 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 2nd took over in 5th on 11/3/22 2022/23 Orlando Pirates South Africa Premier League 1st League & Champions League winners 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande China CSL 1st Took over with 13 games to go.

  9. In theory I'm OK with it yea as most add-ons are pretty stable right? Especially at this stage of the FM cycle. I'm happy for you to be the guinea pig and test it and maybe use these next 2 months as a trial till FM20 comes out and we have another look at it? So if you want to I've no issue with you posting the save in here.
  10. Congrats man, wonderful job. It's a great challenge and one that really sucks you in, I've never actually completed myself and regret the fact I've not really had the time to play FM19 much. I will return in FM20 as will this challenge (I imagine Palermo will be a popular side next year!)
  11. World Cup 2030 Group Stage France 3-0 Chile (Guebbels, Cuisance, Bertrand) - a comfortable win but came with the cost of losing Guebbles (our first choice striker) for the rest of the tournament. France 4-2 New Zealand (Banza, Bertrand, Mbappe x2) - this was a lot closer than it looked as I rotated the side expecting a comfortable win, we fell behind but grabbed the equaliser just before the break. We fell behind again on 60 minutes, we equalised again but was still 2-2 at 90 mins before 2 very late Mbappe goals won us the game. This was uncomfotable 2nd Round France 4-0 Curacao (Mbappe x3, Bertrand) - a very comfortable win thanks to a hat trick from the main man Mbappe. 3rd Round France 2-0 Uruguay (Dembele, Mbappe) - a good win over a solid side thanks to a goal in each half from the old boys (feels odd saying that about these two) Qtr Final France 1-0 Germany (Mbappe) - that man again, stepping up to grab a goal from the penalty spot in the first half. Semi Final France 1-2 Spain (Cuisance) - injuries, suspension and just tiredness (I really need to remember to rest people after matches in tournaments as my sides always tire towards the end when games come thick and fast) caught up with us in this game. We never really got going and Spain fully deserved their win. The scoreline makes it look closer than it was. 3rd place playoff France 2-1 England (Mbappe, Bertrand) - the game no one wants to be in. Well went behind right on HT, grabbed a late equaliser from Mbappe taking it to extra time, just what everyone wanted, a goal early in ET from Bertrand (our back up forward that ended with 4 goals) won us the bronze medal Aftermath I resgined from France to explore other options with South Korea (Asian cup is only 6 months away so would be good to win that) and Argentina jobs the ones I've gone looking for.
  12. Taken me a couple weeks but finally finished my first season at Lyon Season 2029/30 - Lyon My first season at Lyon and upon looking at the squad we didn't need much so only transfers were a couple players I knew from my France team while selling near £50m of talent. Lyon being Lyon they have some great young talent so I was more than happy to give them game time instead of spending. We started brilliantly winning 17 of our first 19 games (drawing the other two) which kept us neck and neck with PSG, a 2-0 win over tham at the turn of the year took us ahead and we were near perfect for 4 months and opened a 7 point lead with 3 games to play. We fell apart here losing our next game before drawing the one after meaning our lead was 2 points going into the final day. PSG had a better GD so if they won (they did) we would need to beat local rivals Saint-Etienne. 0-0 at HT had me worried, a couple early injuries meant I went for broke and we won 6-0 to win the league for the first time since 2008!! In the Domestic cups we had a fairly easy run to the final of the League Cup where we played PSG 3 goals in 11 first half minutes gave us a comfortable lead before a 4th late on secured us the cup. The French cup was a tough run where again we would play PSG in the final. This game was a lot tighter and ended 0-0. In extra time we grabbed late lead but PSG scored right away to take it to pens. 1 miss from us but 2 from them meant we won the cup and completed a domestic treble. In the champions league we were fantastic winning our group easily. In the knockout rounds we had a scare away to Juventus where we only made it threw on away goals after nearly throwing away our first leg advantage. In the Semis me smashed United 3-0 at before an even worse game than we had away at Juve saw us throw away the tie losing 4-0 on the night. I don't really want to leave Lyon, there's 4 or 5 really good young players in the U19s who could go on to be really special. However there are some jobs close to coming up and there is also a world cup (I'll do a report on that once I've played it) which should start some kind of merry go round with managers this summer.

  13. I didn't really want to resign from Dortmund but I had to because the club I was going to couldn't afford the financial package to buy me out but here I sit as a new manager of Lyon. Like Dortmund I think this will be a bit of a project to get them the title.
