  1. A few things from your original formations that I notice I always go for one FB on attack to get a runner from deep I never leave players on automatic, they'll never work out what I want them to do on their own Carrick as an anchor man doesn't have enough freedom to be creative. I'd have him as a DLPd. You have no runners from deep in the 433: Rooney on attack with support roles around him will get isolated, I'd have one of the IFs on attack and Rooney on support so he drops in the hole behind him and plays people in I like having a CMa in 433 to get into the box (I always think of Lampard playing this role, arriving late in the box to score)
  2. What do you pay his agent? I've signed a fair few guys on lower wages because I "bribed" the agent with a huge signing fee.
  3. Blah. Game crashed 8 games into the season and everything's lost. Was sitting nice and mid table too. Changed tack and off to Finland instead now. Got FC Viikingit, pics to follow when a season is finished (in case it all goes tits up again).
  4. Brilliant, thanks for that. Started in Germany with FSV Zwickau. Profile
  5. Am I being blind or has the season summary page gone? I used to use that to see who has been promoted but having not played since fm14 I can't find it any more.
  6. Thinking of picking up FM15 at some point soon and will be straight on this challenge, probably back in Spain with Yeclano Deportivo to try and complete what I started last year (made it to the top half of the second division before life got in the way).
  7. I think this is my first international call up! And for the home nation too, I couldn't be happier. Although as he's the next Andoni Zubizaretta, I shouldn't be too surprised. To say I've been lucky with GKs is an understatement - my current backup is quality as well as my 3rd choice in the U19s!
  8. After my 2 week Christmas break (if it's good enough for Germany it's good enough for me!) I'm finally back to my Yeclano career. I'm only about 10 games into the season but I've found a new tactic that's having some success, reverting back to my favoured 3-4-3 formation. Unfortunately, thanks to working every hour under the sun (and a lot under the moon as well) who knows when I'll complete the season. Congrats to all that are achieving success - Braumiller and toonbalmy on your first titles in Sweden (good luck in the Champs League!), bartrcm on getting out of the Spanish third division at the first attempt (and not cocking up the playoffs like I did to make life difficult for yourself!), and to everyone else who's joined the challenge. Especially those of you taking it on in England, I couldn't even comprehend how long that will take - 42 games per season takes forever, 46 would kill me!
  9. Nice to see we've overtaken The Big Euro challenge! Loads of activity in here recently, I'm guessing that the short Swedish seasons help a lot there! Congrats on the promotions Shakes and korvalis
  10. Oooer Shakes, I've just done the same thing as you - fired a load of players who were underperforming or not playing, fingers crossed I don't end up in the same situation! Updated transfer history Tags now gone: 15b, 15c, 15e, 16b, 17c, 18b. Here's hoping I don't regret these decisions!
  11. I'll take a shot at some of the Hall of Shame records after my disastrous second half of a season with Yeclano. I've got to laugh at it or it'll make me cry Category: Most consecutive defeats (6), most games without winning (9), most games without scoring (3) Team Managed: Yeclano Deportivo Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/F6KfqQ0.png Link to Career Thread: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/377519-FM14-Yeclano-Deportivo I'll leave heaviest defeat as I'm sure many people can beat a 5-1 or 4-0 loss, although they are on that screenshot as well... Things can only get better right?
  12. Sortitoutsi is your best bet for logos, or have a look in the skinning hideout, there should be some links in there.
  13. Yeclano Deportivo 2019/20 Transfers | Squad | Finances | Season records Table| Graph| Results 1 & 2 That is the definition of a season of two halves. The first half left me dreaming of promotion or at least an attempt at the playoffs whilst the second half had me worried about relegation until I secured survival in game 41. Not sure exactly what went so drastically wrong, but having Eugenio Garcia out injured for long periods definitely didn't help. I tried so many different tactics it was spinning my head. I need to have a rethink in the offseason as to how I'm going to play going forwards because I think I got a bit carried away and I might need to return to my slow possession game that helped me in Segunda B4. Star players: Eugenio Garcia, Daniel Grandio and Pascui - the only guys who managed to get over 7 for the season and that was only just. Youth Intake Pretty good this year, players that already have a decent amount of CA are turning up! I tagged 3 players: Jose Carlos Gomez (20a) - a creative midfielder who I'll be looking to introduce sooner rather than later Alex Crespo (20b) - a left back who went straight into my new 4141/4411 formation Ignacio Fernandez (20c) - another central midfielder who might be the long term replacement for Andres Previous intakes: Juan Antonio (19a) - played sparingly, wasn't that great Israel (19b) - will probably see more action next season Felipe Baena (19c) - only made it to the senior squad at the end of the season so will play a lot more next year Andoni Barandiaran (18a) - I trained him up to play ML so he wasn't stuck behind Grandio and didn't perform too well. Hopefully he'll improve next year Ivan Lopez (18b) - after his injury his PA dropped completely, transfer listed Kike Rodriguez (17a) - stud, now has a £5m release fee and going to my GK for years to come Juan Ramon (17b) - played a lot more, showing good potential Jose Javier (17c) - crap, transfer listed Ivan Gonzalez (16a) - a step backward in terms of performance but still around the first team Luis Angel Gil (16b) - crap, transfer listed Daniel Grandio (15a) - one of the star players of the year Ruben Gonzalez (15d) - another down year but showed signs of improvement Francisco Garcia (15e) - crap, transfer listed Eugenio Garcia (15f) - one of my best players if he wasn't injured to bloody often Year | League | Pos | Promotion | Achievement ----------------------------------------------------- 14/15 | 2B4 | 13th | No | Survival 15/16 | 2B4 | 10th | No | 16/17 | 2B4 | 5th | No | 17/18 | 2B4 | 1st | Yes! | Champions, won Copa RFEF, promoted 18/19 | Adelante | 13th | No | Survival 19/20 | Adelante | 18th | No | Survival Aims for next season: survive again, make more money and clear out the deadwood

  15. I got the same thing. This has now become this. None of the dropdown menus on the blank containers work either to correct it in game
