  2. Your youth players will need to be in the senior squad to get into mentoring groups with senior players as well
  3. The first season is done and we won the league and cup double. Played a direct 4-4-f'ing-2 and Tommy Hutchings was the star, banging in 38 goals. Catholic Utd ran me close in the league, but with 10 games to go or so I did what every experienced FM player has done at some point and bought their star striker. He never played for me, but as long as he wasn't banging in the goals for them it was worth it. We've already turned semi-pro, which seems really early but fingers crossed we can keep rolling in level 10.
  4. Wow, 30 years!? And I thought 7 years was a long time in Greece!
  5. I don't know how long it takes to get Liechtenstein nationality (or if it's even possible) but isn't it worth casting your net as wide as possible so that players that are good, but not quite good enough for their own national team, can change nationality and play for your NT? After over 10 years in Greece I've had 4-5 players change their nationality to Greek to get in their NT, changing from Belgian, Spanish and Portuguese among others.
  6. I haven't marked the posts in donkeys years. I go MR/DC/MC/DC/ML across the 5 zonal positions, DR/DL man mark, 2 on the edge of the area and one staying forwards. Gives me plenty of defensive cover across the 6 yard box and 3 players who can spring a counter attack.
  7. This seems like fun, so I setup a game and the team from my town is in level 11 so I'm starting with Springfield in the Essex Olympian League Premier Division. I enjoy the minutiae of FM that in the initial press conference the media asks about the fact I was born in the town but I'm not a fan of the team
  8. What happened in the Cups and Europe? Can only think he's picked up some extra manager points there
  9. 6 composure on it's own I could deal with, but if he's got 6 for composure, decisions, concentration and anticipation then he's never going to amount to much.
  10. There seem to be way too many instances of players blasting the ball aimlessly into the face of someone stood 5 yards away from them, especially in their own penalty area. I had one that caused an own goal earlier and it's just a little too unrealistic, especially when they're not under much pressure and still feel the need to do it
  11. I'm upgrading from good to excellent (i think that's the next step) and that's costing £3.7m so you're being ripped off there. Think they've got some Cowboy builders in!
  12. I did 27 days at a club in Argentina last year, I just wasn't feeling it and it was too much work to catch Boca/River so I left and ended up with the Santos job in Brazil a few months later and went on to win the Libertadores with them.
  13. Veroia FC - 2032/33 end of season review What a load of dross. I didn't make any moves in the summer to try and improve the team, thinking I could just run things back and stick in the top 3. That didn't work out as planned, and we were bumbling along in 6th come January so I went big. I sold Simoes, Kristjansson and Sanchez to China for about £38m total and used that with the idea of reinvigorating the team. I signed 6 players with the money (and also invested it in getting 2 training facility upgrades), but after that things didn't go well. We ended the season in 6th and will go back in
  14. One of my favourite parts of a long term save at one club is when players have been with you long enough that they can change their nationality. I've had a few players do it while at Veroia, all of them giving the reason that basically "it's much easier to get in the Greek national team than my birth country's" The only one for whom that has actually worked however is Alonso Martin. After he passed the 7 years it takes to get Greek nationality, he immediately got himself a passport and since then has started in every international I believe, with 6 caps and 1 goal so far.
  15. Nope, I stopped putting a gk on the bench a few fm versions ago because I can't remember it ever happening to me
