  1. Woooaaahhh, absolute scenes as we win the World Cup with Romania!
  2. thank you! yes, very timely here's the Ghenovici goal in the final to celebrate
  3. ladies and gentlemen, it only took me 9 seasons this time round but...we... did.. it! The Champiooooooons! and to finish it off in style, of course... The most important players that contributed to this story finally coming to an end: and the full squad overview: It's been an incredible journey. I am currently doing a very detailed 'wrap-up' write-up on the whole save on my blog, including the tactics used to finally get here. Thank you guys for your support for all these years - feels old saying that
  4. thanks and best of luck in Tula The baseline attributes are the following - aggression, bravery, determination, work rate In FM17 I started with the idea of signing only youth academy products that fit that criteria but then I have slowly moved on to a more flexible approach since that would have meant cutting out some of the best prospects i have had come through. So I tried to shift that approach to tactics instead - if you read the FM17 Sparta thread you will see that most of the Tactics I have used are counter-attacking/counter-pressing formations as well as styles of play that shift focus on physique & space manipulation. In FM19 the situation becomes even trickier since the determination of players decreases if they are surrounded by a 'less determined' overall squad which hugely impacts shaping your personality's squad in a long-term save, so again, I try to focus on systems that would emulate the spartan qualities and I try to sign staff that would match that criteria too. Hope that helps
  5. End of Season 2019-2020 CHAMPIONS! It was a nerve-wrecking last match of the season, but with a few tactical switches in the last half an hour we've managed to do it!!! Top Flight, here we come
  6. usually these are the following factors that create this notification: 1. Training workload is high for the mentioned coaching category, i.e. having a low ratio of coaches to number of players needing coaching in that area 2. Low quality coaches for high reputation players/club 3. Custom/manual training schedule that is not balanced - if you leave it to automatic you shouldn't get that notification unless you have the 2 problems above
  7. wrong Romanian & Russian are the two official languages. There's no such thing as moldovan language. If you need any other instructional material on the identity crisis in this region, please dm me :))
  8. you failed the Moldovan nationality test, I'm afraid... it's Romanian good luck!
  9. oh wow, first time I see someone else doing a career there daca esti de pe la noi, maladets!
  10. got back into playing this recently, will try to find some time to write the updates
  11. I have no idea how I have discovered this only now but it's absolutely fantastic @crusadertsar Privet from a neighbor Moldovan and a fellow Juve fan
  12. I suppose what is debated here is the very definition of a libero In my systems I tended to use him, indeed, in supporting/playmaking roles, however I disagree that any defender / deep role would do the same job. I would say manipulation of space and technical / numerical advantage based on both vertical and horizontal movements were the key advantages of the libero that I liked and focused on. In most of my systems (very much alike between them in terms of formation at least) I focused on a centre overload/ excess support for the wings. Of course, it also depends on the tactical styles you use - you could have, indeed a runner/box to box libero or a supporting / playmaking one depending on the overall style and role / mentality distribution in the system. On top of all that, if I remember well, even with a free midfield formation (free space for the libero to act in) and with a vertical style of play, in those versions of the game - FM17, FM18, the libero still did not behave like much of a runner and his verticality sometimes hit that invisible wall indeed. If you manage to get this kind of behaviour @Cleon I would be very interested to see the details of your setup
  13. 12 December 2020 Youth Intake Day well... second good intake in a row! we get 3 five star rated players: Silviu Ion Horațiu Tofan Cornel Tănase very happy with the personalities of these guys and Cornel Tănase looks like the real deal
  14. 18 December 2019 Mid Season Review - faring unexpectedly well so far, much thanks to the tactical shift at the beginning of the season - if we manage to keep the current form, I would be very happy to get a promotion bid at the end of the season - injuries and U19 national activity are taking their toll on squad depth and we will see more and more players from the U19 team promoted to the first squad
  15. haha, no pressure! yes, when you create a club in FM19 you get the option to add players - so when I shaped the squad to include only U19 players, Dumiter and Ehmann where amongst them
