  1. A really good read this. It goes to show how impactful a little pre-match effort can be when coming up against different opponents. As for me, I was always more of a plug & play guy branching out into OIs baked into the tactics I made (which Danwolf refers to). The result was usually a monstrosity of a tactic which could be badly exploited on occasion with no real answers from the moron in charge of the team (Guess who?). In any event, well done mate. It’s concise, well written and the screenshots really help in visualising exactly what you are looking for and going for. It also gives me the idea that perhaps I can tone down the PI/TI/OI hodge pudge that I usually end up with. I’d recommend anyone in a similar position to me to give it a read. It’ll really get you thinking.
  2. Well... Almost pulled off a giant killing to end all giant killings. Joinville attacked from the gun and were 5 minutes (plus stoppage time) from beating Goias who play in Serie A. Sadly close but no cigar. Gotta love AI counter attacks from out of nowhere... By the way, if anyone is wondering what the "H" is next to Goias, in the event of a draw in the Copa do Brasil the higher seeded team goes through. No extra time, no penalties.
  3. JOINVILLE ESPORTE CLUBE Club Information | Manager Profile | Club Vision | Advanced Options | League Setup | Database Setup 1 | Database Setup 2 And so it begins again! I think I have outdone myself by creating an avatar that will make women blanch, men vomit and children weep tears of fear long into their adult lives, but I digress... Decided to give this a run in Brazil. Yes the seasons are long and rather convoluted but the State Championships usually give you a good chance to blood your younger players which is of benefit in the long run. Joinville have been in Serie A before and won Serie B as late as 2014. But the usual kind of mismanagement has led them to the desperate situation in which they find themselves, because let's be honest, anyone who hires me MUST be very desperate indeed. Their squad is pretty decent (especially for the level) and has ample players who are all quite young in the reserves and a surprising amount of youth players. All in all, it becomes about keeping our better young first teamers for the time being and attempting to catapult into Serie B as soon as possible. We shall see. Youth Squad | Reserves | First Team There are some quite good players floating about and they should form a nice strong core for the rest of our youth to develop. Here are the best of them... Caique | João Vítor | Dalberson | Eduardo Person | André Baumer I'm beginning to suspect that Eduardo is, in fact, an alien infiltrator. I mean, "Eduardo Person". Person? Who's he kidding? Anyway, we are also involved in the Campeonato Catarinense de Futebol which will kick off soon. Given that we are up against Avaí (Serie A), Chapecoense (Serie B relegated from Serie A last season), Cricíuma (Relegated to Serie C last season) and Figueirense (Serie B), we are likely the 5th best team in the Campeonato at present (at best), but we do have form having won it on 12 occasions. Also, it is close to the perfect State competition. Not too long and the competition is decent enough that any younger players will develop faster. So, wish us luck! By the way, here is the lovely city of Joinville. And I think we have a lovely stadium. It's a 22,000 all seater built in 2004. Cozy with a dash of intimidation. Until next time...
  4. Going Brazil mate. Find a weak state championship to blood the young guns and go for gold. Interestingly there seem to be quite a few teams that have graced Serie A that come up.
  5. For those interested in trying Brazil, I think I have found the appropriate date to save at in order to have a variety of clubs on the reset date. Save game on 7 November 2019. League Reset Date: 2 January 2020.
  6. Yes they can be. Very, very long! But Europe is doing nothing for me at the moment and I have a Spanish small to big game happening. It’s just for something different. I’ve been searching and I’m struggling to find the reset date. I suppose I’ll just go by the fixture list.
  7. Yeah, Turkey can be a real pain in the neck. I think I am going to have another crack at this in South America. I don’t think anyone has ventured down there this version?
  8. @XaW This might be a little left field, but how about a Libero on a support role? He would step up into midfield on occasion but slot back into the defence at other times. Wouldn’t he? Oh. I see I’ve come late to that particular party...
  9. I (along with another FM’er) are trying a save with Atalanta. Fantastic facilities, dynamite young squad and potential to grow. Once I get tactically better I may even *gasp* enjoy it!
  10. With that in mind, I think I’ll take the second suggestion and try Spain. Only ever had short saves with Atlético and Bilbao before and not for a long time. So something fresh.
  11. Doesn’t Holland lack promotion to the bottom playable division in the first season?
  12. Spain would be tricky. The Netherlands for the same reason due to Ajax, PSV, Feyenoord. @Balahara called it. The Netherlands it will be.
