  1. That's exactly why I started doing it as well, and with all the different leagues this has been my longest save by far for a long time. If anything now I'm into Europe it's starting to lose me a little bit.
  2. Yeah the games come thick and fast dont they. Just wait until you get to Brazil though, about a 70 odd game season. South Africa is pretty fun though isnt it, some really good youngster come through.
  3. Yeah those youngsters you've got look very good. With those sort of players you should have a decent Copa Libertadores, some of the big Brazilian teams are a whole other level though haha. I found in South America the top jobs seem to pop up quite often, so a decent world cup and you should be set.
  4. Finishing 5th in your first season in the SA top flight is not easy at all, looks like you're flying in this save. Are the Kaizer Chiefs set up for instant success?
  5. Luke Fox Borussia Dortmund 2035 / 2036 It's been a while since I've played this save but just managed to finish a very interesting season. After concentrating on the Senegal job for so long I was a bit worried about what jobs in Europe i would be able to get, Dortmund hadn't even finished in the top 3 in the league for 4 season but with the money the had I was hoping to have a good season and hope for a massive club to offer me a job and start working towards the Champions league. I was also reunited with two of my ex players, which was nice. Francis Ju
  6. Yeah that's why I've stuck with this challenge, even if I never get the chance to complete it, this has been my favourite save on any FM for a while. (Excluding my AFCON quarter final curse)
  7. In my set up I added all international Asian players, but that was the only change that I made. I'm in 2036 (I think) and the international teams are fine for me as it is, just starting to notice the overall player count starting to decrease a touch. Some relatively big clubs in playable leagues I've had loaded from the start have a few greyed out players in the youth teams. Seems to be a known issue with some teams only creating 3 or 4 Newgens per intake.
  8. The worrying thing is I still have them loaded, the International team are still fine but it starting to get noticeable that it wont last for ever. What can I say I just love Nigeria, already been there twice and trying to write myself back into it haha.

  10. It's nice when it's you doing the poaching, less so when it's your players being poached isnt it haha A season in Brazil probably takes as long as almost 2 seasons in Argentina, but in my save at least, the level in Brazil was much better and if you can get one of the top jobs it will probably take less time than building an Argentine side up.
  11. Try offering the players a contract but change the start date to end of season, I can't remember if i tried it or was just happy to start from scratch. Brazil is a long season, but it's a pretty fun league. I had the same thoughts as you and tried Aregntina for the Libertadores, Argentina has a more normal 38 game season but in my save at least the Brazilian sides were much much better.
  12. I did very early on and from memory theres a league rule that only allows 1 year contracts, so at the end of every season its chaos. The team I was at weren't very good so I used it as an opportunity to bring in players as well, replaced basically my whole squad in one window, so that's always an option as well haha. Me and @_JHTB_ were talking about how frustrating it was early on in this thread.
  13. That's basically exactly how my first season in Brazil went, close all the way and lost out to a silly result or two. I was lucky to take over a few games into the league and not have to deal with the state champsbut its disappointing as hell though isnt it, all those games for nothing. It's a long season but with a few decent signings you could easily clean up the league and Libertadores next year I think, if you stayed that is.
  14. Cheers mate, was a nice season. Yeah a lot of people here seem to struggle with the cup side, I'm doing ok at the minute, it's the international game im struggling with haha. Congrats on the promotion, hows it looking to stay up next season? Holland is always a fun country to play in as well.
