  1. Hi guys, I've had a few requests lately for some of these schedules, as apparently my dusty old freewebs site from 2006 has finally faded away into internet obscurity. These schedules were fairly popular in their time, back when everything was controlled by sliders and Freddy Guarín was scoring thunderbastards from all over the park. Hopefully they can still be of use to those of you who still enjoy the older titles. Included in the archive are all of the schedules that I created for each version of the game from FM06 up to and including FM12. This includes a range of positions, youth, part time and full time schedules. I don't remember exactly what schedules exist for each game and I don't intend to find out either, sorry. Readme/Installation notes in the spoiler: I will attempt to answer any questions if you have any, although my FM time is sorely lacking these days and any knowledge I once had has all but left me. I just wanted to share these with you all for one last time. Cheers, Mark Tugs Training Complete.rar Mirror: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pgs7xcgteeibxal/Tugs Training Complete.rar?dl=0
  2. Name: Juan Cazares Age: 23 Nationality: Ecuadorian Club: Banfield Position: AMC/RL Value: Available on a pre-contract at the start of the game Sale Value: ...he can be picked up for as little as £950k or free in Jan Work Permit Needed?: Yes, but it doesn't seem to be a problem! Disgustingly cheap, I picked him up for £950k in the first season with little competition from elsewhere. Only potential downside is he may be a touch injury prone, but I've gotten to November without a single stretch on the touchline.
  3. Coleman has been great for me, improved a hell of a lot as well. Put in much better performances than Hibbert and Neville.
  4. Away tactic is the same but with counter, rigid and Coleman as a full back (defend). Team instructions are default, except I've set marking to man and dropped the width slightly. Most of my tactical management comes from touchline shouts and player instructions.
  5. We did it. A scrappy 1-0 win against QPR, left it all up to Chelsea. Liverpool went 2-0 down, but made my heart stop when they pulled it back to 2-2. Fortunately though, John Terry popped up with the winner late on sending Liverpool down to 5th and claiming the League title for Chelsea. Here's the final table: And the squad with avg. ratings: Jelavic finished the season with 19 in 38 league apps, a few slumps of form in the middle but otherwise he was ferocious. Oviedo was my surprise of the season, turning in performance after performance from the wing once I realised his ability late on. Barkley ended up on 9 goals, a lot of which were match winners which is brilliant. Looking forward to the new season now, I feel I've got a great platform to build on, just need to see if Kenwright gives me anything to build with!
  6. After pushing on desperately for a Champions League spot in my first season, I hit a patch of bad form which saw us take 6 points from 5 games we really should have been winning. However, a few changes to the way we play saw us beat Liverpool 2-1 and put 4 past Spurs and 3 past Wigan. Last game of the season to play now, at home against QPR and it's incredibly open at the top. Liverpool dropped points against Norwich in a 0-0 draw and going into the last day the top 5 looks like this: Chelsea 81 pts (+31 GD) Man City 80 pts (+59 GD) Man Utd 73 pts (+32 GD) Liverpool 73 pts (+23 GD) Everton 72 pts (+21 GD) Liverpool play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. If we leapfrog them to seal 4th, I will be absolutely over the moon
  7. I think the best team I played in my cup run was Stoke. Was very lucky in that respect. In contrast I crashed out in the third round of the FA cup against a Championship side. And yes, we are one and the same I've been playing a 4-2-3-1, with the wingers and AM all playing as Inside forwards. Jelavic has been patchy, I've got him playing as a lone striker and complete forward. He'll grab 8 goals in 4 games and then go on a run of 5 without scoring. Best success I've had at making him perform consistently is with Dzagoev behind him as a trequartista, stretching out the defence and playing through balls. Jelavic's best performances have been flashes of individual brilliance though. It's Mirallas I'm having issues with, the sheer amount of clear cut chances that end up going out for throw ins!
  8. Hi guys. Started a game as Everton a few days back as they have a great squad and I have a strange footballing mancrush on Jelavic! Sold Mucha for £1.5m to raise some much needed cash, replaced him with Mikkel Andersen for £300k, as I didn't like the idea of having Springthorpe as back-up in case Howard got injured. Brought in David Fox from Norwich on a 6 month loan to add some depth to the midfield, and moved for Dzagoev on a free in Jan. Started very well, and have been sitting around 4th place for most of the season. Stand out results include: 3-0 v Arsenal at the Emirates and wins against Utd and Chelsea at home. January came and I shipped Naismith out to West Brom on loan, hoping that he will sign there permanently. Also decided to sell Pienaar to them for £2.5m on deadline day as he just would not perform, and consistently threw hissy fits at my team talks. Brought in Ryan Gauld from Dundee Utd for £525k to develop him up, Juan Sanchez Mino on loan for 6 months to cover injury and 18 year old Ole Kristian Selnaes from Rosenborg for £1m, who looks very exciting. Currently in a bit of injury strife, Baines has been out for 2 and a half months with a torn calf muscle, and is still out for 4-7 weeks. Gueye was sidelined for 3 months and I've just lost Dzagoev and Gibson for 3 months and 5 months respectively. However, I'm sitting 5th in the league after 26 games, with 2 games in hand that if won, could potentially move me up to 3rd. Also, I have just won the Capital One Cup! Had a fairly easy run ending with West Ham the final, which never happens to me! Some standout players: Jelavic is a monster, 18 in 29. Goes through some rough patches but when he's flying, he's flying! Barkley is insane. Putting in some worldly performances for me and he's nowhere near his peak. Gibson is a true asset once you've trained his long shooting out of him. Mirallas is frustrating as hell. Does so much with the ball, but his end product, be it crossing or finishing is at times woeful. And some pictures: Selnaes: Gauld: Barkley: League Table:
  9. Phenomenal club thread. Will be diving into a career with my beloved Norwich eventually, so I will be back!
  10. Hey Guys, sorry for the lack of updates over the past months... Uni work and a more active personal life has reduced my FM playing time right down. I try to answer any emails I get about the schedules, however I don't really check on all the individual threads I've made so much any more. I've tweaked the TT09 schedules a bit to come up with a set of TT10 schedules for FM10, and myself and a few others have been testing them out on the Gold demo. These schedules are available to download now from the usual website: www.tugstraining.co.nr and I'll be making a new thread on here tomorrow once I've been out and bought the game. They've been working quite well, but if you would rather stick to what you know, the old schedules from 09 are still available and still work. I'd imagine the 08 ones do also if you prefer them.
  11. If you give me your email address mate I'll send them to you in an attachment. If you don't fancy giving it out on here, email me at tugmyster@gmail.com A quick tip for you all as well, when you set your coaches to the specific areas... don't auto assign. If you take a bit of time to do them yourself you'll see the benefits
  12. I honestly couldn't tell you mate, I've got players improving rapidly left, right and centre. Alberto Paloschi's strength and finishing amongst other attributes have gone up by 3 and I'm only into November! I've always said throughout my 06, 07 and 08 training that if it doesn't work then don't use it! I don't want to ruin your save games, honest! There's other training schedules coming through all the time and it's not hard to make your own ones up if you apply yourself. It's like the tactics on here, if you prefer to download others then you're never going to get a perfect one for your team first time. I know that a lot of people see improvements with the schedules and i have full sympathy for those that don't... but there's no point battling on with it if you know it's not working. If you started losing games non-stop you'd change your team or tactics at least Some new screenshots for you all, this is with 4/5* coaches and Spurs' default training facilities...

  13. There's only one schedule this time round and it's a general Striker schedule, no more Tall/Fast! willz - I'll hopefully be making a part time set of schedules soon, but you could always try your hand at making your own in the mean time
  14. Tug's Training 2009 is the 4th edition of a training schedule that has graced your copies of Football Manager since November 2005. It is highly regarded around the FM scene and has hundreds of thousands of downloads to date. This edition like it's predecessors has not had rigorous testing and only builds upon the successes of older versions. You can use this thread and/or my email address to give feedback (positive or negative) that will hopefully lead to updated and more successful versions of the training. Screenshot This training schedule was made by me Mark Tugwell, and may not be redistributed without my permission. Please direct Feedback, Comments, Hate mail and death threats to either: tugmyster@gmail.com or simply reply to this thread. * * * * * WHAT'S CHANGED IN THIS VERSION? Fast Striker and Tall Striker Schedules merged, proving more effective. Training Intensity of all schedules modified slightly. A closer look at the training frameworks to hopefully make this training more successful than ever. General improvements and adaptations to all areas for FM2009. NOTE: At the moment there are no part time schedules, but they will hopefully follow shortly. WHERE SHOULD I TRAIN MY PLAYERS? If you think you have a player who doesn't fit into any of the schedules, put him where your best judgment says you should put him. For example If you have a left back who plays very attacking football, you might prefer to train him as a midfielder or even a winger. Also, if one of your Strikers is more of a flair based player, you might fancy training them on the attacking midfielder regime. NOTE: I use these schedules as an improvement on the default FM schedules, if you have a player who needs a lot of work in a certain area, copy their schedule and tinker with it. Eg. a well developed player who has disappointingly low pace, might benefit from a lower intensity on certain parts of his training in aid of more intense Aerobic training. Play around with them, training can be important! MY PLAYERS ARE GETTING TIRED! Occasionally, you may want to rest your players, perhaps nearer to the latter stages of the season. Or sometimes just clicking down the training intensity a few pegs can help a bit. * * * * * INSTRUCTIONS: Download the files and then copy them to: (My) Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\Schedules If you don't have a Schedules folder, simply create one. When you're on the training screen in game, click on Edit training, go to import, select the Training files and click OK one file at a time. * * * * * Download link: http://www.freewebs.com/tugstraining If you have any difficulties obtaining the schedules, then email me/reply to this thread and I'll help you get hold of them. Many Thanks, Mark x
