  1. Follo FK - Season 2024 Review Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances A really good season for us, and it ended in success. On the final day we could finish anywhere from 1st to 3rd, so it was really close. We did our job, and won at home to lower mid-table side Jerv. Sarpsborg 08 also did their job and won, and thus clinched the title, while Egersund lost away to 4th placed Haugesund. That meant we finished 2nd and are promoted to the top tier! Quite amazingly, but the starting squad for this team is really something. I also managed to integrate a few of the youngsters into the side, s
  2. Welcome to the challenge! I can't see your images, they give a 401 error.
  3. Follo FK - Season 2023 Review Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances This season went much better than I had expected. I initially thought we'd struggle to stay up, but from the start we showed we could compete and were part of the top teams. It was a 5 way battle for the top spots. Start, Fredrikstad, Sarpsborg 08, and Sogndal were all fighting along us throughout the season. Start puller away towards the end, but it went down to the final match before it was clear Fredrikstad had finished above us in the final promotion spot. So we went into the playoffs, but we lost to Egersund in t
  4. I don't think we've ever allowed such things, right @darren1983?
  5. Oh, I agree, there are improvements that can be made, no doubt, but I still think the ME now is a huge step from the one in FM20 and previous games. And I also think that the weaknesses of high pressing is not exploited enough in the game. High pressing is a high risk/reward strategy, and with the right players can work wonders, but can also backfire with lapses in concentration or personal mistakes from players either not used to it, or just not good enough. Those are things I hope to be improved for any future games, but as is, I still think it feels more like actual football than befor
  6. Thanks, I'll have a look. Don't be surprised if I head there at some point...
  7. I don't think there is any way in the base game, but there are a lot of mods flying around, so perhaps you can find one who shows what you want. Here is the forum for those types of mods. https://community.sigames.com/forums/forum/18-skinning-hideout/
  8. Yeah, it's still not perfect, and there are certainly some quirks to find (the physics of the goal net jumps out a bit), but in general I think the actual play is much better, and I can see my instructions influence what happens on the pitch (both good and bad, based on what I do!). I've posted quite a few gifs here in this thread of goals I've really appreciated, so have a look at that if you want.
  9. As far as I can tell, the general consensus is that the ME is much better, but a lot dislike the new match UI (there are mods for that though). If you want to find out what has changed, just download the demo and see for yourself. No one else can know what you think is important, thus it's not possible to say for a certain how much of an improvement it is. For my own sake, I can say, I think the game gets better every year, and the ME this season is the best it's ever been, by far!
  10. Sorry for giving you hope in keeping your job, even if the reasons were off! Good luck in Slovakia, don't think I've managed there for a while, if ever!
  11. It's chance, but with a weighted probability based on reputation. So higher reputation = higher chance of getting promoted into the viewable leagues.
  12. Well, you _can_ play there, but if the board want to fire you for getting relegated, that is also a possibility. There could have been changes, but I'm almost certain I kept my job when getting relegated to that tier in FM20. When you are relegated to a non-playable division you are usually fired as soon as that relegation is a fact, so it's quite strange to see you getting booted out during the off-season. You didn't remove the league during the season in the add/remove leagues feature? That's the only suggestion I can think off.
  13. Mind tossing me a link? Yes, as long as they are promoted to the lowest possible tier after holidaying for a season.
  14. Only 1 tier with no relegation/promotion. I'd love to do the same in Gibraltar, but those are the rules...
  15. Follo FK - Season 2022 Review Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances The season flew away, but it was a very good one! I knew the squad, and I have a lot of good players for this level, but it still blew me away that we won the whole league in the first season. I stayed with my usual 4-4-2, and set up Ernest Rzepecki as my main goalscorer, and did he ever deliver! 30 goals in 27 matches is just plain crazy, really. So we head into the 2nd tier next season, and now we will face professional teams and I expect we will struggle more. In Norgesmesterskapet we lost to Kjelsås in the 1s
  16. If you select your nation from the "globe" icon and to the right under "Clubs" press "List", you can see all the reputations for the teams. So have a look at where you are compared to Liverpool. If they have a lot more stars than you, then you need to keep improving while they decline.
  17. Yes, for custom databases that is fine. The Kazakh league should low enough on the ratings for that to be perfectly fine.
  18. Yeah, got a bit bored with it. I mean, it's a fun save, but I'm just not getting anywhere, and not getting enough money in to improve much... So I wanted a change of scenery, really. I've had the idea of a new go with Follo for a while and contemplated it before going to Russia, so I just decided it was time now.
  19. I really have some unfinished business here... This is the closest club to me in real life, I've seen them a few times, but they are way down the leagues. Some years ago they had a few quick stints in the 2nd tier here in Norway, and even made the Norwegian cup final (they lost) beating a lot of big teams like Rosenborg in their journey there. So it was a bit of a media hype around them at the time, but they have struggled with finances since and are down on their luck. The club were created in 2000 as a way to have a "big" local team, since there were only small amateur teams around
  20. You do know you can mentor the Determination up quite a bit? Also, for my own sake, I'd rather my players have low determination as long as they have a high professionalism instead. Much more important to youth development as far as I'm concerned.
  21. Actually, we have gotten this from SI: So there should be some impact on how likely you are to get foreign newgens based on youth recruitment (could be a small percentage increase or something).
  22. I don't think there's been any official confirmation regarding this, but as I have understood things, youth recruitment is "how far the net is cast". So a low youth recruitment will have more local players than a high one. The probability of getting a better player is higher when you have a bigger pool to pick from. It also depends on how good the teams around you are in regards to the recruitment, since the higher reputation clubs will have "first picks" so to speak. In game that would be the probability of a great player ending up in a higher reputation club vs a low reputation club. So havi
  23. It's a bit dependent on the role the players is used in, but in general I'd say Crossing, Technique and Off the Ball as some keys to improve upon (as well as the ones you already have above 8, like Anticipation and Dribbling). Also passing (and perhaps Vision) if the winger is not an out-and-out winger who simply runs down the line and crosses.
  24. Welcome to Russia, grab your vodka and warm clothes, you are in for a ride!
