    Been playing FM since FM07 and am now starting an FM blog for FM2012 based on my experiences and knowledge gained from this forum and other sources. I can't really remember all the sources, but for those I do, I'll post links to the source rather than state what it says or theorise on my blog. Anyway, here's my blog: http://hidayat-amran.blogspot.com/
  1. Same here. After 17.2, I can't apply for work permit for players at the club. A message will appear saying it will be decided the next day. Come next day, no updates, and the option to apply for work permit appears again.
  2. This is just one of the many I had. 84th minute, beautiful shot by my teenage youth, and it got disallowed because of Berahino who didn't have anything to do with the shot! I just don't want my youth player to lose confident of himself! Justice needs to be done! Southampton v Hull.pkm
  3. Mine is in the premier league. Not back to back but not right either.
  4. The trollest thread ever.
  5. I have another one at 8 mins. Definitely should have been a goal. I also noticed that the offside calls tend to have a significant lag between the time the flag went up and the offside call was made. Flag will be up, but call are sometimes made when the ball is already back in own half after a string of passes, making things a bit confusing at times. Hope this gets fixed too. Feyenoord v Southampton.pkm
  6. need more info

    I have a few too. But the West Brom match takes the cake. Noticing a lot of second half come backs when there were no major changes from either sides. West Brom v Southampton.pkm Stoke v Southampton.pkm Burnley v Southampton.pkm
  7. Hi Guys, I can't seem to find the time to update regularly. So will post an update once I complete the challenge. Entering season 2029 now. Cheers!
  8. Season 2026 Review Knattspyrnufélag Vesturbæjar Season Review: Been a while since my last update. Have been busy with work so took a break from FM for a bit. Finally finished the season. So highlights are qualifying for the Champions League Group Stage, which brought us close to 10 mill. but we crashed out spectacularly. Was beaten left right centre.

  9. Season 2025 Review Knattspyrnufélag Vesturbæjar Season Review: My first season in charged where I had little problems in my matches. Seems like my team's more or less on auto now. Notable things this season are winning the quadruple and expecting to turn full pro end of the year.

Glad I did, for 2 reasons. One, he's better than Victor. Two, injury crisis. In the middle of the season, somehow my team were dropping like flies to injuries. At one point, I only had 13 players who were fit. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven. Aleksandar Stojanovic: Another solid no-nonsense season for him. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven. Kasper Bjerregaard: He was injured for quite a while this season, but he is still one of the most consistent players I have. Just wonder how long it will take for him to be natural in WBR position. I realise it takes longer on FM16. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven. Youth Prospect: 2025 Intake Next Season's Goals: 1) Retain league title, so that we can get into Champions League again. 2) Improve scouting range. 3) Hmm.. Can't think of any yet.

  10. Finally! T-T I actually whooped out loud when they agreed. We are going Pro!
  11. Hahah wouldn't call it fighting it out. The standard is just too high at the moment even among the qualifying phases. Just trying to get decent results at the moment.
  12. Same, don't think I have it conquered yet. I mean we are still a semi-pro team compared to the other pro teams in the league. It's getting harder trying to ward off clubs trying to buy my best players.
  13. Season 2024 Review Knattspyrnufélag Vesturbæjar Season Review: Ok, there's good and there's bad this season. Good is that we won a treble. League and 2 cups. Bad is I hate my board and the club structure. My club has this weird structure whereby the board has to go through an annual election which changes the chairman. So this means that almost every year, I have to deal with a new chairman which makes it difficult to get requests approved. I'm starting to think I can never turn pro or get my scouting range upgraded unless we get taken over. Oh, and they sold my GK!!

However, I think I need to replace him soon if I want to remain competitive. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven, Supporter's Player of the Year, Icelandic Team of the Year and the runner up for Fair Play Player of the Year. Aleksandar Stojanovic: Since I'm thinking of switching my RP to AP, I'll be training him as a B2B going forward. I'm actually slightly suprised he is not in the Icelandic Team of the Year, but at least he's still named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven. Kasper Bjerregaard: My new RWB to replace the one that was sold last season. I only have a slight concern with his disciplinary record but other that, he's performing really well. He's still young, so I hope he stays with us for a long time. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven and Icelandic Team of the Year.

  14. Season 2023 Review Knattspyrnufélag Vesturbæjar Season Review: So here's what I did this season. After sticking to my guns on control tactics, I finally chucked it to one side. Yes, I'm a huge fan of control tactics, but I think my players are probably not too suited for it at the moment. Plenty of possession and shots, but too many off target or blocked. So, I started reading up on Cleon's attacking theory, applied it to a formation I felt was well suited for my team, and it paid dividends, though towards the end we started losing leads to late goals (will look into that). We won a double; the league and the cup. That secured us a place in the Champions League, so I expect money to come in which could help in expanding my scouting range and turning us pro. Only thing I worry about now is how badly we'll be whacked in the Champions League. Oh, and we lost our star wingback, so I really hope I can get that scouting range up. Hardly any wingback in Iceland. Board expectations: Premier Division: Top Half Media prediction: 4th Icelandic Cup: Semi-Finals Icelandic Upper League Cup: Not important Euro Cup: Can't remember. Think it was don't get outclassed. Keep forgetting this and it disappears at the end of the Icelandic season. Results: Premier Division: 1st | League Table | Player Stats Icelandic Cup: Winner Icelandic Upper League Cup: Semi-Finals Euro Cup: Second Qualifying Round Season Summary: Transfers Finances Key Performers: Viktor Karl Einarsson: Hahah. I laughed because at one point, I had no strikers available (all were out on injuries), and was forced to play him as a striker. Surprisingly, he did quite well, even scoring a few times. Made me wonder whether I should convert him to a striker but his physical stats were a bit worrying, so I decided not to. Aleksandar Stojanovic: Ever-present in the team. I would say my signing of the season. I play him as a B2B, but train him as a RP because the RP training schedule more or less covers all those needed for a B2B and I need him to play as an RP in case Viktor (my current RP) gets injured. Sam López: My RWB would have been here, if he wasn't bought over. So Sam gets the final spot this season. Don't get me wrong, this guy earned his place here. Very, very hard working and his crosses to the far post are something I like to see in games. Youth Prospect: 2023 Intake Next Season's Goals: 1) Retain league title, so that we can get into Champions League again. 2) Turn Pro 3) Improve scouting range.

  15. Season 2022 Review Knattspyrnufélag Vesturbæjar Season Review: We did better last season. In almost every way. So looks like I'll need to take a look at the squad and tactics again. It's not like we don't have chances, we had a lot of chances at goal, but my players just keep shooting off target. Hmm...

Results: Premier Division: 3rd | League Table | Player Stats Icelandic Cup: Fourth Round Icelandic Upper League Cup: Quarter-Finals Euro Cup: Third Qualifying Round Season Summary: Transfers Finances Key Performers: Viktor Karl Einarsson: 6 assists in the league. And that's his highest in a season so far. You might think that's low, but his key passes in the league is 110, the highest in the league. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven, the Supporter's Player of the Year and in the Icelandic Team of the Year. Also awarded the Fair Play Player of the Year with 0 yellow cards and red cards in the league. Baldur Búi Heimisson: The league's runner-up Signing of the Season. Sure, his stats are not as good as my other central midfielders, but somehow he's rated better. Think it has to do with his hidden attributes. Named in the team's Seasonal Best Eleven. Nermin Djurdjevic: His crossing is bad, but even though his role requires him to go up all the way to byline sometimes, he's rarely caught out of position.
