  1. Guangzhou Evergrande - 2027 report Last season we won the league comfortably and this season I had a 400 million (!) transfer budget to work with. The aim for this season was to win the Asian Champions League, and we did exactly that. We splashed the cash on a 21-year old Australian striker from Liverpool for €97 million. I think that is my most expensive signing ever on FM. Unfortunately we didn't win the cup or the league, but I'm very happy with this season and my time in China. Time for a new job hunt! The best players from my time here (some players are nicknamed because Chinese names): Lil Wang Big Hu Ivan Maric Eljif Elmas Young Yan Jorge Martinez Niyo Nordi Mukiele Nico Yennaris Pedro Delgado Manager profile League table Season review CLUB CAREER ----------- Season Team Country League Position FA Cup League Cup Champs League Others & Notes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 Magni Iceland 1. delid karla 5th - - - Joined with 11/22 games to go, was in 5th finished in 5th 2020 Magni Iceland 1. delid karla 5th QF Group Stage - National C licence 2021 Magni Iceland 1. delid karla 5th R32 SF - National B licence, resigned after last game 2022 Hudiksvalls FF Sweden Division 1 north 3rd Group stage - - Got my first international job, National A licence 2023 Hudiksvalls FF Sweden Division 1 north 3rd QR2 - - Continental C and A licence 2024 Hudiksvalls FF Sweden Division 1 north 1st Won in QR2 - - - 2025 Hammarby FF Sweden Allsvenskan 1st Group stage - - Continental Pro licence 2026 Guangzhou E.

  2. Guangzhou Evergrande - 2026 report I decided to accept the offer from Guangzhou as I saw the potential to win both the Chinese league and the Asian CL with them. Having finished in 5th the previous season, we didn't compete in a continental competition this season, which meant we could focus on the league. This was a big advantage for us, and we won our first 9 games. Then our form dropped as we lost a few games but we turned it around and went 19 games unbeaten to end the season. I am really happy with how this season went, and next season we will try to win the ACL.

  3. Hammarby IF - 2025 report I finally managed to make some progress in this challenge as my patience started to run out. I've managed to take a team that finished 13th the previous season to win the league, which is my best achievement so far in the challenge. We were given a transfer budget of 8 million euros before the season which is a lot of money for a Swedish team. I also finally managed to get a tactic working on this years FM.

  4. Hudiksvalls FF - 2024 report Sweet revenge. I have finally managed to win something, and even if it doesn't count in the challenge I'm really glad to have smashed the league. My players was much better than everyone else, and my plug-and-play tactic was really good. Achieving a record points tally of 74, it's fair to say I was pleased with the season. I finally got my strikers scoring as well, my front 2 scored a combined total of 37 goals. Very happy to get the manager of the year award as well. This is likely my last season here in Sweden as I want to go and actually make some progress in this challenge. I've taken Hudiksvalls FF to the Swedish 2nd tier, and hopefully they can stay there and become professional. My former team Magni also managed to escape relegation after their promotion to the top tier! Here are my key players from my time in Hudiksvall: Tarek Alnator - My best players during my previous 2 seasons at the club. Filip Schyberg - Captain, leader of a centre back. Scored 12 goals in 2 seasons. Niclas Andersén - Great attacking left back, got 7 assists this season. Teodor Wålemark - My best defender. 6 goals and 2 assists in 25 games for a centre back is not bad at all. Anders Olsen - Probably my best player this season, got 18 goals and 6 assists in 27 games. Filston Mawana - Great name, very good striker. Scored 20 goals for me. Patrik Larsson - My best DM. Piotr Johansson - I love that his in-game name is just "Piotr" and he was a beast for me on the right wing.

  5. That's basically what I wanted to know - I was wondering if there was something in the game which could increase the chances of my players converting opportunities in every situation, as you might understand my frustration when I have the most created chances in the league by far yet don't score that many goals. I can't get my head around tactics this year, everything I create is just so inconsistent for me. I created some good tactics in FM19 that worked all the time, but this year it seems to be different which I like. I guess I will go and use some plug-and-play tactics just to see what works.
  6. The thing is that it doesn't seem to matter what my tactic is, it's just that I seem to be worse at converting chances into goals than my opposition even tho my players have better attributes.
  7. They are just not good enough for my first team unfortunately. I never had a youth player break into my starting XI at any point in this save. Yes, there is the quota of home-grown players in Allsvenskan, but I developed players from other clubs in my youth system. Some developed into really good players, like Simo Tomcic, Dylan Versluis and Nenad, all of them are home-grown. I use a single forward system so it was hard for the forwards to break into my squad. I also want to sell my players to other Swedish teams, to kinda build the nation up. Not at all, I have worldwide reputation and I am a bit surprised no other Swedish clubs has increased their reputation. In context to all other clubs in the world, I am up there with the best.
  8. Hudiksvalls FF / Nigeria - 2023 report I ****ing hate this game sometimes. This season was an emotional roller coaster and I think this challenge is making me insane. But I'm still enjoying it, and I'll keep doing it until I don't. Going in to the season we were favorites to win the league and our squad was just way better than everyone else's. I built a tactic based around my best players and it worked for the first few games. But then... we lose one game and we are suddenly incapable of scoring goals. We create chances, more than our opponents, but can't score. We went 7 games without a win and at that point I knew it was over for us. I had officially given up on tactics and downloaded a plug-and-play tactic made by knap. And then our form completely turned, go figure. We went unbeaten in our last 6 games but that wasn't enough. We actually were at the top of the league at some point but our 0-1 loss against my rivals this save, Sandviken, made us drop below them. We went into the last game 2 points below the team Norrby in 2nd place, and we had to win to have a chance of promotion. Our better goal difference made it possible for us to jump ahead of them when we went 2-1 up in our game while they were drawing 2-2. When the whistle blew I couldn't believe it. I thought that luck had gone my way for the first time in this save. Absolute limbs. Haha. I thought. Nigeria surprisingly offered me the manager position and I obviously said yes. With the AFCON coming up, and Nigeria being the holders, I thought it would be a great opportunity to claim my first milestone of the challenge. We beat Ivory Coast 3-0 in a friendly before the tournament and that made me believe. We were in a group with Mozambique, Ghana and Gabon. We comfortably won against Mozambique but then came Ghana. We were not convincing at all, and lost the game due to an 86th minute winner from Ghana... But I thought we could recover from it and we looked good when we played Gabon. We had 28 shots, created a lot of chances but didn't put them away. Gabon on the other hand, had 2 chances and scored 2 goals. **** on a stick. At this moment I was questioning the existence of some sort of FM god that doesn't allow me to score goals. But we were a given lifeline, as one of the best 3rd placed teams. Too bad we were already dead. We lost against finalists (!) Angola. We had 33 shots, and created more chances than our opponents again. But we just could not score to save our lives. Our captain Wilfried Ndidi was certainly the main man this game. Because he assisted their first goal in the 41st minute, then equalized for us in the 86th minute, redeeming himself. I thought we were heading to extra-time but captain Wilfried had other ideas. He wanted another assist, but unfortunately he was temporarily colorblind and made a great run into our defensive third before laying a beautiful through-ball to Angola's Helder Costa, who makes the big brain play of shooting directly at our keeper who deflects it into his own goal, ensuring my sacking as the head coach of Nigeria.

  9. I keep conceding too many penalties with the "get stuck in" instruction on. Is it really worth having it?
  10. I've pretty much got the exact same problem - my team seem to have way more opportunities to score than my opposition yet we still don't get a greater goal return. It's weird because my opposing team always seem to be able to score them but not me, even tho I often have better players than them.
  11. So I've noticed a trend so far in my FM20 adventure, that my team seem to have way more opportunities to score than my opposition yet we still don't get a greater goal return. It doesn't seem to matter what my formation/tactic is. I've tried everything and now I've gone mad and even considered downloading a plug-and-play tactic lol. One season my striker had 172 shots in 22 games but only scored 9 goals. I need help here! What do you guys do when struggling to put away chances? It's weird because my opposing team always seem to be able to score them but not me, even tho I often have better players than them. Thanks
  12. Hudiksvalls FF / Haiti - 2022 report I couldn't resist it. When I was offered the opportunity to manage my local side Hudiksvalls FF I just couldn't say no. I wanted to manage them at some point this year and I figured this would be a good opportunity to do so. They had been promoted to the Swedish 3rd tier as well, so it wasn't really a step down from the Icelandic 2nd tier, even if it is a semi-pro club. My goal here is to take them to the 2nd tier and move on from there. This season we were first predicted to finish bottom but that changed when we brought in a full team of free transfers. Then we were predicted to finish in 2nd. I love the Swedish free agents, they want no money and no one else want them. I was told by the board to try and avoid relegation so I knew there wasn't going to be much pressure on me. The trend so far in my career has been that my team always come really close and are very unlucky. No exception here. Created the most goals and chances again, and we finished 2 points below the promotion places. It's starting to get really annoying at this point but there is always next year I guess. One thing that I have struggled with is tactics. I tried my best tactics from FM19 but they were all very inconsistent. This is a first for me, I normally get my tactics working really fast. But tbh, I like the struggle with FM20, something that I didn't really have in FM19. I also got my first international job while I was applying for jobs, I thought Haiti would be fun to manage but I'm not really hoping to win anything here, just for boosting my reputation. This was the match that saw us drop below our promotion rivals, Sandviken. Absolutely gutted to have lost that game.

  13. I do use some personal instructions, for the left back, right back and BBM.
  14. I've found success with a midfield consisting of Anchor - BBM - AP. The 8's get a lot of goals for me and one season my BBM got 20 goals. Usually the goals come from rebounds from blocked shots but they also come from created chances. I managed to win the Champions League my local team Hudiksvalls FF (Swedish 4th tier) with this tactic. But keep in mind it's from FM19 so it might work different on FM20 (from what I've seen it's still pretty good).
