  1. First half of the season goes decent. For example, this current season, I was W7 D6 L5 before my bad form came knocking. I know 7-6-5 isn’t amazing, but it was enough to have me pushing play-offs at the time. Whilst it’s super annoying, isn’t this why we love FM? Trying to find ways out of these types of runs of forms. Waiting for someone to make themselves a hero! Maybe I could give one of my youths some games, they might be the catalyst needed to get results.
  2. Well, friends, it seems these demons are unrelenting. For the past two seasons, you'll notice my form just falls off a cliff. These pictures don't quite capture December and January, but it starts back there. One picture shows my current season and it looks like it's heading the same way. What annoys me most is for the first three/four months, we do fairly well. Usually lurking around the play-offs or IN the play-offs, then December/January arrives and we tumble down from a solid 5th-8th position to a just-avoiding the drop position. I try everything from small tweaks (as to not confuse the players too much) to a full-on change of tactics/formation but can never yield results. For those of you wondering how I've not been sacked, I've the 'Become Unsackable' option on. My friends and I all agreed to do a CAC save starting from the bottom, taking over the team predicted to finish bottom in the bottom league. We clear out all the staff and players, remove the history and build our way up. So, to get this far in and then be sacked would ruin the idea of the save.
  3. Sorry if this isn’t posted in the relevant place, but I couldn’t find another topic about it and didn’t feel the need to start another topic for it. I’m just wondering when the in-game editor will be available? Thanks in advance.
  4. I forget if it was FM17 or FM18. I had spent many years moulding Shrewsbury Town into a footballing power-house. There came a period of around 4/5 years in which I’d always get Ajax in the KO rounds of the CL. And, I’m not ashamed to admit it, we were always on the losing end. Another season rolls around and before I know it, I’m against Ajax in the Q/F on the CL. I draw the home leg 0-0 and with that result, my confidence is knocked. The away leg arrives and around 70 minutes in, I’m 3-0 down. I sigh, in defeat, and just beg for the referee to end the game. Fast forward to full-time and it’s 3-4 to me. I don’t know how it happened, but I was simultaneously lost for words yet asking every question known to man looking for answers.
  5. That’s a fair point :) But even starting higher up, I’ve never had a problem ^^
  6. I’ve never had an issue starting on the beta and carrying on into the full release. Replaced FC United with my own created club. Got rid of all the players and staff and started totally fresh. Despite being favourites for relegation, I’m currently 10th after 15 games - 2 points off the P/O - so it’s going well :D
  7. Had a feeling that might have been the only option. Thank you for the swift reply though! :D
  8. Hey, friends. So, this year, I’m doing a CAC save starting from the bottom league. I wanted to replace the team predicted to finish bottom - which was FC United. However, I completely forgot the supporters own/run the club and it seems they hold elections to vote on who they want as next general manager. Does this mean I could never get a sugar daddy/billionaire owner or would that person still be able to buy club off the supporters? Thanks in advance for any answers :D
  9. Whilst I would love the Beta to be out tonight, it could be worse - there could be no Football Manager game. I for one am thankful and appreciative that we have an FM game to look forward to. On the plus side, my laptop hasn’t reset in 24 hours of waiting, so tomorrow will give it another 24 hours to reset 🤞🏻
  10. Well, because my laptop is taking forever to reset (wanted it to feel brand new for FM19, even though it’s only a year or so old) I’ll probably never play the beta anyway -.-
  11. I was about to suggest doing CAC at the very bottom. I’ve spent the past 6 iterations of the game taking Shrewsbury Town to glory. But, this year, I want to create my own history from the very start :D Maybe start unemployed or utilise the ‘Pick a random team for me’ option :)
  12. I’ve been inspired by DrBenjy’s Thames save and I’m going to create a club and start at the very bottom. Gonna see which team is predicted to finish bottom of the Vanarama North, rebrand them and my year it set. I end my two weeks off work on the 20th Oct, so if the beta could release before then, I can smash a few days in
  13. Sorry for the slow reply, mate. I was in the Championship at the time. Yeah, he was straight in there. To be fair, I’ve invested a lot in to my youth. If I remember, I’ll log on to my PC tomorrow and show you a 17-y-o striker I have
  14. Just got a second 'golden generation' and this is the best player from it: He's probably not the best ever, but, damn, he's good!
  15. For me, I want a tactic that is solid in defence. Goals may win matches, but clean sheets stop you losing them. If someone at the start of a Premier League season said to me: we can guarantee you a clean sheet in all 38 games or that you will score at least 1 goal in all 38 games, I would take the 38 clean sheets. That way, I know at minimum I’m getting 38 points. However, scoring one goal every game doesn’t guarantee me the win, because I could lose every game 2-1. I know it’s not necessary for all positions or roles, but high stats for determination, work rate and teamwork are important to me.
