  1. Background I'm been managing Clyde in Scotland for 10 seasons, worked my way up the leagues and just done the domestic treble. Had 4 seasons of champions league football with the last being the first I managed to get out the group stages but was soundly beaten in the first knockout round. Celtic did exactly the same. Luckily we have 3 Champions league places next season. Coefficient Whilst the Coefficient is going up with the league reputation I really just want to win things, I have almost no hope of winning the champions league so my question is, is it better for Coefficient and league reputation to go deeper in the Europa league from finishing 3rd in champs league group or getting knocked out in first knockout round of the champions league? I think with a good draw and some luck I could have a good shot at winning the Europa league but if the Reputation takes a hit then its not worth it. Many thanks
  2. I feel your pain. I'm currently managing Clyde is the SPL season 2025/26 been in the spl about 5 years and finished 2nd 1st and 2nd in the last few seasons so got a decent balence from the champions league. The last 2 seasons iv had the mantra of buy young and cheap, flog for profit. The stadium was increased last season to around 10k and this season they said they'd build a new one which is great although we're still in the searching for a location part. Trouble is this new stadium capacity will only be 16k , I'm going to struggle to complete with rangers and celtic with that. It's a minor gripe and probably realistic but this has been a long term save iv been doing over months and I'm never going to get a huge amount of seasons done. I think next fm when I start my save the best thing to do is up the max expansion capacity in the editor.
  3. Jesus I'm managing Clyde but a few seasons behind this is something to keep an eye out for
  4. Quick question I'm Clyde just about to start 18/19 season and been promoted to Scottish league 1 the club has been professional from the start of the game (I think) I can sign players on professional contracts but don't seem to have the option to sign coaching staff on full time contracts. Any ideas why? Surely this has to impact on training. Thanks in advance
  5. Only a tactic by MinimalFuss would have created nearly a page of chat without the tactic actually being available
  6. Just won the Football league Championship with Nottingham Forrest (104 points) and into the FA cup final with the normal tactic but putting the CM to a CAM (T) 4-4-1-1 so its working a treat for me still. With the right players playing in the right positions this tactic is still top drawer in my opinion
  7. Thought id share my small experience with this tactic. Started as wolves made only a couple of signings using the normal tactic but with the CM as a CAM (T). Slow start but by xmas I was 2nd in the Championship then got sacked due to board takeover Ended up retiring and adding myself back in with Forest who were about 18th and managerless played the same tactic that i did with Wolves but didnt really have the right players and with an already low moral im really struggling. Hopefully I can stay up and rebuild for next season. One thing i did notice is that a good prefered move to have for the wide midfielders was "gets into opponents area" I had jed Wallace at Wolves who scored a lot from ghosting in around the back for easy tap-ins. I think its like any tactic you need the right players to execute it and you cant expect every team to have the players you need from day 1

  9. Not very excited the days of getting CM/FM day one is long gone for me. Pretty much no point starting a serious save until a a few patches in anyway. It must be tough for the developers to keep coming up with ideas especially after 20 odd years
  10. Thats pretty much the way about 10-15 games a season go for me
  11. Iv started a save with this with Wolves and we are doing well about 3rd but still early. Although im finding it tough to find a "complete forward" which is probably to be expected at champ level
  12. Tactic is great going forward but defensively not so good. You'll need the right kind of defenders for it to work however what I find is that a high percentage of opposition chance are clear cut like over 50%. It wouldnt be so bad if you were limiting them to 10 shots with 2 ccc but when its 10 shots and 6 are ccc then your in trouble. I find its very much we'll score more than you mentality.
  13. This is the problem SI have now with FM there really is little to be done to drastically improve the game they've only really been polishing the last few incarnations and im sure 15 with be the same. This is why we get poor ideas like this banded around because what else can be done to drastically improve FM??
  14. Best way to make money when taking a team to the top level is to buy young players develop them preferably quite a few each season I aim to get a few into the first team then loan the rest out for a fee. They wont develop as well out on loan but you can earn a lot from loan fee's iv had players in the past earn me 5 million in loan fee's then iv flogged them off for big bucks. Once you win the league multiple times and you rep grows its easy to poach all the best players from around the world especially if you've got all your scouts out with there ears to the ground
  15. Yes please something iv wanted for ages
