    Pogon, 2009, Gundo's FM09 European Adventure
  1. Just a quick one daf, would you sign a youngster with 2* CA and 4* PA or would you deem the CA too low?
  2. Ah that's interesting. How do you choose that value? I see you had £500k initially on the screenshot you posted on here. Is that 1500 players for one position or all players u21?
  3. Daf Quick question. I've been adopting your player search technique (ie under 21, sort by PA and then CA). I was wondering what you do when you're dealing with a top class team? Presumably searching for an under 21 DMC interested in joining your club would yield thousands of results? Do you filter them down at all? Cheers saab693
  4. You may have answered this before Mr Hough, but do you get scout reports for the players you look to sign or do you just get the ones with the best attributes you can?
  5. Thanks mate. I've been testing out the 'no pressire' tactic and it seems to be working nicely without affecting my disciplinary record too much
  6. Anyone? Really don't know how to deal with this one!
  7. An ok so as regards your post above, did you mean 'realistic' as opposed to 'unrealistic?'
  8. That's interesting. How were you finding the trial players then? By attribute search?
  9. Ah MikaelS, I remember your epic Chippenham saves! What tactic will you be going for this year?
  10. Ah I remember the Sirocco Works days, hopefully the league rep system will change things this time. Out of interest, why didn't you do this as part of Gundo's challenge?
  11. Great opening post mate, superb. I've been (unofficially) competing in your FM11 challenge with my Mantova side and as we're on the brink of Serie A I don't think I can give up on them just yet.....I will be back for FM12 though, I assure you. I hope your save games won't be riddled with bugs before the first patch comes out! Cheers saab693
  12. Really pleased you made it! When's the new challenge going live?
  13. Thebaker Fair play to your persistence mate. As you may recall, I got my Jaszbereny side in Hungary to domestic dominance and the CL group stages each year but I just could not face the 20-30 years it would take to make the progress required to actually win the competition. The straw that broke the camel's back was a 9-0 defeat at home to Benfica. I just didn't have the patience. Conversely, I have had a huge amount of enjoyment with the Big Euro save and will probably go for that next year unless there is a significant change in the way the dynamic league system works. As an example, Red Star Belgrade won the CL in 1992. It shouldn't be so implausible for sides from historically weaker leagues to come together under a strong manager and good back room staff to succeed in Europe. Just my opinion obviously.

  14. I've got a cracking save at the moment with Mantova but unfortunately I didn't get the pre-requisite screenshot to comply with the rules! I'll be sure to do proper updates next year but I'm really getting a lot out of the save. Cracking challenge gents, looking forward to the FM12 thread - I take it there will be one?!
  15. Very late in the day eh mate? Have you already completed it once?
