  1. I don't think anyone can underestimate your dedication to this save. Your success and the speed you are playing at has been mind-blowing and the updates have been well written. I had my attempt at getting NI as high up the league reps as possible and got as far as 9th by 2049. In the end it broke me mentally. Knowing the season was all about the 2nd half of the season when the group stage has been played, made playing the 1st half a chore. I finished up getting to the Champions League Semi-Final narrowly losing to Leeds 4-3agg. The only other thing that stopped me playing on was the const
  2. Not sure if this helps. If you go to world - Europe - international - qualifying places. It will show you how many places there are for Ireland and where they start.
  3. I just holiday the domestic cup matches in Northern Ireland. The league and the Champions League are the matches i need to concentrate on.
  4. The Chairman accepting poor bids for talented players when there is no financial reason to do so. My club is financially secure and i've lost count how many times i had to protest a transfer in one window.
  5. As someone who is doing a save with the same objectives, could you show your national club coefficients? I've got the league up to 12th in 2040/41, but lately i've been hogging the national club coeffievient and qualification places.
  6. I had a look at Llanrhaeadr on my save and they are as obscure as you would expect. Maybe yours is a freak one-off. I'm about to finish 1st above Glentoran for the first time after leaving them 3 1/2 yrs ago. Very jealous of the countries performance in Europe for you. In mine, wild horses couldn't drag them into the next round
  7. An amazing career so far, long may it continue with Linfield. I imagine the difference in player quality is huge. Do you think it will take a bit of getting used to? I struggled to feel any attachment to my Portadown players after leaving Glentoran for about 6 months. We had a PLC takeover collapse after a few messages of what was to potentially to come. Devastated when it fell through. How many clubs do you think you'll have to managed to achieve the goal? You're about to take Linfield to dizzy new heights, in mine they are back in the DBP after a year out of it.
  8. Amazing achievement once again. Can I offer a little suggestion with regards to the wage bill? I noticed that Barry Hill played 39 and scored 31. You could do a little maths for me (you don't have to)? Could you work out how much you pay in appearances and goal scoring bonuses. I don't offer either of those as well as unused sub bonuses, wage rise and sell-on bonus. The only ones I really allow are team related bonuses, wages after appearances and the goal scoring target. The reason I ask is do you think it is possible to save money without bonuses that can be costly? Defenders and goalkeeper
  9. oops, I just saw you'll be playing in the 2049 CWC.
  10. Congratulations on the Champions League win. How will you approach the Club World Cup, do you know when it is being played? Got to love the size of the new stadium. With my Glentoran's stadium, it was maxed out within 1yr at 24,154. So, i'm not jealous at all. Do you think that league rep or club rep played a part when it came to the stadium size?
  11. So unlucky with the defeat. I hope you won't do what I did and buy their best prospect and help him go on to win the Golden Boot/Shoe. I got robbed by a draw against Institute. Had a couple of seasons drawing 2 matches, but just get that 38-0-0. Similar thought to the above, are you planning to move again? I just left Glentoran at the end of 2034. Linfield got relegated by Bangor in a playoff. I had to wait until December for the job with Portadown.
  12. Loving this thread so far. I feel your frustration with progress in Europe, even though i'm 12yrs behind you. I'm 3rd seed in the Champions League, but I've only managed to get past the group stage a couple of times. Usually we slip into the Europa League. Do you think another club move is necessary for the league rep or have you some unfinished business with Glentoran? Do you think the other teams in the division turning professional has been helpful with league reputation rise? I had to give 8 teams £5m each. I have had a few bidding wars for some of my players and Including the Champions Le
  13. Thanks. Didn't even realise that happened in the game. Something to look forward to.
  14. Can anyone tell me how to qualify for the Club World Cup? I won the Europa League with Glentoran in 2030 and haven't heard anything about it. I checked out the previous winners Chelsea and noticed they played a month later in the CWC. We get the Super Cup news, but that's it.
  15. Yeah, you can have a 2nd team through adding a manager. There might be an issue when the 2 teams are as good as each other and both boards expect a title win.
  16. I would say it can only go up a certain amount when winning the ACL with just one team. Collectively, Hong Kong teams need to pull their weight a little. Managing another team or even a 2nd team will help. Do you look at the nations club coefficients? I'm trying something similar with the Danske Bank Premiership in Northern Ireland. Similar starting prize money and current prize money, although i'm only in 2028.
  17. Hi, That's one hell of a save you have on your hands. Could you answer me a question? As the league rep has gone up, has the league gained anymore or had a change to the qualifying spots?
  18. I asked on twitter but no response. Is the fix for coefficient calculations save compatible or is a new save required?
  19. Select nation of choice, top left for overview and then season summary.
  20. I had what I think is a hard Brexit. A points based system and transfers need to be more than the average fee over the last 2 windows. If managing in England then this can be a problem. I am managing in Northern Ireland and I think it is more preferable than a soft Brexit. As players need to play in a certain percentage of games for their national team, I think all foreign player transfers will fail. However, the appeal rules are points based and this is where I think all transfers will go through. 3pts if transfer fee paid is in the top 25% of transfer fees paid in the DBP in the last 2 windo
  21. Could you post a pic of this? If you don't pay full wages then you are paying money, just not the player's full wage. The loan fee is what you are charging. It will tell you in the transfer history as to how much you will get over the duration of the loan. I think the potential to make lots of money through loan deals has been toned down over the last couple of FMs.
  22. Good to see you back. I just need to remember the change in the title. I'll have a crack at mine soon.
  23. I have to ask even though you are 50yrs into this save, would you have done anything differently to achieve the save's objective? Or do you just need more real time? Do you think there is some sort of rebounding when it comes to league rep? What I mean is the usual top 4 leagues English, Spanish, etc. will stay there unless a human manager gate crashes. Yet, in my opinion, the NI league being in an unnatural position would slide down quite badly if left to its own devices. I am really considering this as a save that needs to be added to my 'list'. I usually like to do a Wrexham sav
  24. Love the poem. I don't think I've seen anyone do that on an update thread. I would have thought you would go for the next best option to Linfield and Glentoran to maintain the co-efficient. Why so low?
  25. Excellent work once again. Do you plan to take on a 3rd team or even try to get back to Glentoran?
