  1. I'm working on a database where the majority of the English teams at level 9 is replaced by teams all with second nations coming through their youth academy. The idea is to build these leagues and potentially a cup for them all (might cause fixture congestion so have not committed to this yet). This should include all world nations, as that's the plan. So every team at level 9 gets a particular nations regens coming through (few spare teams may survive to flesh it out), idea is doing this in England should help lift smaller nations if their clubs with that second nationality rise, and it
  2. That Liverpool result result, if was Utd probably got the sack Otherwise good stuff
  3. Ahh maybe I'll try FM20 in time then, always like getting second nationalities in the youth.
  4. Reading this I thoght back to an old thread by @Makoto Nakamura with the youth in Croatia, quite a slow burner but eventually got to the top. Hopefully you don't take as long, was 40 seasons to the Bundesliga. Though starting level 10 might be close. Going back through that thread and reading about your youth intakes reminded me of a post about English clubs with second nationalities. I have now decided a save starting at level 12 with London Samurai (second nationality is Japanese) is a good way to spend my time. Did you change anything on the editor for such a range of nationaliti
  5. I'm having the same experience in France, really can only sign player released from teams in the same regional league. @Jimbokav1971 I assume you would have the same problem if signing players, which fortunately you do not. I found a few years ago I took a tier 10 team to prem (Witney Town), the players on non contracts and amateur stayed with me but the players on part time deals left. Not sure if you will see the same, but if that is the case your youth are more likely to leave.
  6. Sad to see the end of your last thread, but looking forward to seeing where this goes. I love lower league management, usually run out of steam by the time I get near the top so end up taking few clubs to Prem or other equivalents and then never winning it. I often go to this part of the country, my family all live in and around Gretton. Just north of Kettering. Good luck.
  7. I have just finished reading the Reddit series, was disappointed it ended so soon but was a great read. Looking forward to seeing how it goes with your challenge, are you going to be setting card and foul targets? What do you think will be the priority, success then going down the discipline route or vice versa? Understand you are getting a setting up the policy to get aggressive players but curious, would a new signing slightly under the required ratings come in if you thought was key to promotion for example. Anyway good luck!
  8. I like option 3, in my view that seems the mostly likely one a club would choose if wanted to modernise and I agree with Smurf that the date is the most important part. A quick google shows me the town is the largest producer of carrots in Southern Italy. If ever change again reckon could fit a carrot reference in there somewhere?
  9. Introduction Me and the wife have had a baby, and weirdly he's come out and can already say 1 word. Zoo! This is a sign, I must build a zoo for my boy, however due to a weird change in the law (I blame BREXIT) the only way to take ownership of a breeding pair of animals is to accept it as a gift. Well it's quite difficult to get people to give you animals for free, but another quirky law from BREXIT is that football clubs must give you a gift in the form of an animal representing your club if you win a trophy. It's a weird world but I think I can make this work. So th
  10. Post Season Review We have completed our first season in the Ladbrokes League 2, did we manage to hold on and win promotion at the first attempt? Well it was a bumpy ride but we did it. Despite the teams best effort to throw it away, myself included, we just about managed to hold on to a top place finish and avoid the playoffs. We started to unravel when, as mentioned in my previous post, I holidayed a game as we had already played it and won before my computer crashed. The rerun of the game saw us come away as 0-4 losers, a quite shocking result compared to the s
  11. Thanks @Nobby_McDonald hopefully the success continues, not expecting a rapid rise as I hate spending but 2 seasons in each league 1 and 2 then as long as it takes in the Championship is the timeline have in my head.
  12. Mid Season Update 20/21 18 games into the league season, how are we faring? We have done spectacularly so far, I thought the media might be hyping us up a bit and when we didn't make too many wholesale changes to the squad I was a bit worried we wouldn't be as competitive as everyone said. We are currently 12 points clear having just lost our first game against second placed East Fife. We dominated but couldn't score, missed a penalty and the only consolation is its making me tweak tactics a bit rather than just coast through the year. The rest of the competitions ar
  13. Pre Season 20/21 So the dust has settled and we are looking ahead to our season within the Scottish league structure. What's happened in the off-season, not much really. Transfers I said to the squad that with the right additions we could do midtable, they were disappointed with my ambition, so we settled on aiming for play-offs. This in mind I looked for some signings to make and see how we could improve the squad. Scott Costello came in from Brechin, he had been on loan here the last 2 years and hasn't performed amazingly but at a decent level. He wanted a £5 a week
  14. I actually quite liked seeing this, just makes your manager seem a bit more Warnock like, heart on the sleeve kind of guy. Also worth noting that I love how FM07 looks. Good luck with Hinckley.
  15. Not a bad haul, imagine its probably some kind of record. Are you finding this a lot quicker just managing the international side? Do you miss the amount of fixtures you had before? Never really got into a international save. Just got into League 2, wont be facing cross city rivals Edinburgh CIty as they just got promoted to league 1.
