  1. I’ve been playing in South America the past few months for the first time ever and I’m really enjoying being away from Europe and learning about the different league set ups down there. So FM22 I’ve decided that I will try and have a one save file journeyman around the world trying to do the Pentagon challenge, although I won’t be sticking strictly to the rules as I won’t have player masking on and will probs start with a National A licence. Plan is to start in Asia before moving on to Africa, South America, Europe then finally North America. One thing is for sure though, I will NOT be managing in any of the big 5 European leagues. I’ve made a rule with myself that I want to experience more of the game instead of doing the same thing I’ve done for literally decades
  2. This years FM, 47 years taking Vale of Clyde from Scottish tier 7 to Champions League. All my saves tend to be a minimum of 25+ years. Next FM22 could be a one save file kind of year though as planning on the Pentagon Challenge. There’s guys/girls in the Youth Only challenge who are hundreds of years in.
  3. What made Peru so much fun? I’ve been playing through South America for the first time and done Argentina, Brazil and Chile so far and thought I wouldn’t bother with Peru now as I’ve got all my badges and won Sudamerica so thought Peru might be a step back but if you recommend venturing back to it I might give it a go.
  4. I’ve been having a lot of fun in South America recently. Great talent and the money isn’t crazy in the transfer market so you can recruit well, it’s been really refreshing compared to Europe. Brazil is a lot of fun as is Columbia. I’m a big fan of German lower league, especially if you hook up an extension pack and try and work your way up. Done that with Gutersloh the past two FMs with great enjoyment.
  5. For me getting that far I'd say around 3/4 hours a day and more on weekends. Basically unless I'm out or watching a film I've got my laptop on and plugging away. Guess that will change when kids come but, they're no hassle right? What I heard anyways so maybe shave an hour off when they come
  6. Does this mean he’ll be in the game as an actual player?
  7. Was texting my FM playing pals about this last night and I would be very interested in managing in Spain in FM22 if the financial burden clubs are under was properly addressed in the game and the salary caps were in place.
  8. Is ten season's considered a "big save"? I feel satisfied in the poll but the truth is it depends on the save and how it's gone. I did 47 years with a club this year which I documented in the career thread but by the end I was thinking about my next save and it had run it's course, I was only keeping it going the last few seasons for the sake of the thread and my immediate thought was relief. I did 15-20 at Gutersloh after that but got bored once I'd got them into Europe so that felt anti-climactic. But when I look back after some time I feel satisfied as while the save was happening it was fun. The most satisfied I can be is when I end up in a save like @roykela, the aim every year is to just have one save file the entire game.
  9. I know there will be more work going into developing the new feature but I think for us as players it simply means more leagues to choose. I don’t think we will be forced to have the woman’s leagues loaded into our game as you are suggesting. If you don’t wish to play within the women’s leagues then don’t load them. For us as players that’s all it will mean.
  10. Can’t say that I feel strongly either way about it. It’s extra leagues to play at the end of the day which can only be a good thing. I think someone already mentioned it previously in here but, for us long term, journeyman type players I think it will add a new dimension to gameplay and further open up different ways of playing and taking your career.
  11. So now that the Euros and Copa America are over that’s the 2020-21 season done and dusted. European qualifiers are about to get under way this week and some countries leagues/cups have already got started so the 2021-22 season has officially begun and my thoughts are now turning to who I might manage on the next Football Manager instalment. So I thought I’d get the ball rolling and ask, anyone got any early ideas for what kind of challenge/save they’re going to take on for FM22? For me, I have my long term save secure in my mind for when the full fat FM22 drops but for the BETA release I think the early front runner looks to be in the Italian leagues, an enforced youth only save…
  12. I’d like to say thanks to the Spanish keeper for making an arse of that to take the heat of big Marsh for the second Czech goal in our game.
  13. I’ve only just started getting to grips with editing the game i.e. adding faces, skins, logos and the like with the in game editor. I know how to add a badge in for the club in general but how do/where do I get the ID code for the small badge that shows in the league tables?
  14. We’ve no made it out of a group stage before and if you’d have said before it if we’d be able to go into the last game with our fate in our hands I’d have taken it. I genuinely think we have a strong squad and if we could just unearth someone who could put the ball in the net we’d be threat and could make it out the group. I’m a Rangers fan but I’m so disappointed Griffiths wasn’t involved more this year as I think him up top for Scotland and we’d be in with a chance.
  15. Well, all about being a disgruntled ex now and try to get an equaliser and ruin the Croats getting through. We’re clearly out.
  16. Maybe I’m distracted by nerves but I’ve not picked up on Armstrong’s poor showing. Before the game though I would have said around the 70 minute mark Armstrong should be off for Turnbull and Dykes off for Nisbet.
  17. At 1-1 we’ve got absolutely no chance
  18. How have you no seen that before? Been doing the rounds for about 2 year. Did you no know where the song came from? I’ll say it now in the hope I’m proved wrong, we’ve no chance now. One down, Hanley off, McKenna on and on a yellow already…can see us losing by more before the game is done.
  19. Game on the mora troops! Win and we’re definitely through.
  20. Austria won which means if Finland or Russia lose then if we beat Croatia we’re guaranteed to go through now.
  21. Peak Scotland, last man of the match is out of tomorrow night with COVID.
  22. Aye I thought they were talking about Gilmour getting a second wind. I’d probably keep the team the same but I’d be more trigger happy with the subs. Same side for first 45 then I’d put Nisbet on for Dykes at half time, Forrest for O’Donnell at half time and then see where we are around the hour/70 minute mark.
