  1. Sounds like the automatic continue and I are going to become bedfellows in FM22. Cheers folks.
  2. I ask this as someone who had a few years away from FM, before diving face first back into 2020 & 2021. The game time for my FM21 save was 10 days, in which time I covered 5 seasons exactly. I like the leagues I'm not playing in to still maintain realism, transfers and full squads, plus when playing with smaller nations I like to have enough players to choose from, so my setup is below. Basically - Is 2 days a season par for the course now, or is there something glaringly obvious in my save setup that is adding unnecessary weight? My PC is absolutely fine, built fresh last year so there's no issues there.
  3. Well, 1 documentary on East German football and I've hand my mind changed. Definitely going to start the save in Germany as one of the East German champions who are languishing in the lower leagues and try to restore their glory. If I can find a Regionalliga database then I'll start as BFC Dynamo, who won 10 consecutive titles in the 80s before being dumped into the 3rd division when the Berlin Wall fell. If I can't find that database early on then I'm starting with Dynamo Dresden (8x East German champions)
  4. Getting some great ideas from you guys, cheers. Quite tempted to do a Preußen Münster save.
  5. I'm still torn. I like smaller European leagues where I could make a team the dominant force in the nation and then try and make an imprint on Europe. FM21 had me going through Norway with Tromso and then Molde. For 22, I'm considering either Ukraine (had a Ukraine FM08 save that is still my favourite ever) or the Swiss league, but not sure which team. I did like the idea of FC Vaduz as the Liechtenstein representatives in the Swiss league, but the fact they cannot be crowned champions obviously kills it a bit. Just wondering if others had settled on their FM22 story yet?
  6. Honestly couldn't figure out where to ask this, so making a best guess. I'm back on FM08 as Stenhousemuir and I've put together a shortlist of current world stars who are very young youth players on the game. I have the likes of Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne & Romelu Lukaku, just wondering who else might be lurking out there as a 16/17 year old for 100k in someone's youth team?
  7. Hiring an assistant manager fixed it. Learn something new everyday.
  8. Actually, it might be the lack of Assistant... Will report back.
  9. A few seasons in and I've traded Crystal Palace for Nantwich Town, with a squad of 6 whole players. When I go to player search, I get 4947 players: When I click 'interested', it only takes 4 players off the total: Now, unless Mbappe fancies swapping Man City for the team predicted to finish 24th in the league, something isn't right here. I've signed 2 fairly poor scouts, is this failure to narrow down due to them, or is this a bug? Anyone know and anyone know how to sort?
  10. I love the dedication to a single club, I've become such a journeyman in recent years.
  11. When you're out of a job, you get weekly updates on job vacancies, is there any way to get there whilst you're still employed? I've built my reputation as Molde boss to the point where teams like Brighton and Crystal Palace are offering me interviews without applying, but I'm running a very large database so it's hard to keep up. I know in job security you can view vacancies by club reputation and that's perfect, but is there a way to get this information sent to you, rather than having to check this screen all the time?
  12. Also, just spotted that you've signed Magnus Mattsson, he also followed me from Tromso to Molde, great player.
  13. An interesting read, I started my FM21 save as Tromso too. After winning the title in the first season, I struggled in the Eliteserien before taking the Molde job after the Tromso board failed to back me. Interesting to see that we both signed Erlien and Lyngbo in our first seasons too. I built my team around Yttergard Jenssen, he and Kent-Are Antonsen have followed me to Molde. Peter Bjerke in the U19s is worth keeping around and Ousseynou Cavin Diagne from Kristiansund was a great CM partner for Yttergard Jenssen. Good luck
  14. Weirdly, Odd were actually one of the teams. I sold him in the end as I'd managed to get Eddie Nketiah on loan, didn't want to risk losing him on a free. Hope he enjoys the arse-end of the division!
  15. To set the scene, at the start of last season, I picked up a random Brazilian striker on a free transfer and gave him a 2-year deal. Now, at the end of the season (where he was a revelation) he has signalled his intentions to not sign a new contract due to the interest in him. I'd just won the league, and the interest came from 2 promoted teams. Logically, you'd ask him if he was on crack to want to swop a starring role in the Champions League for a relegation battle, but there is no such option. In the end, I sold him for £4m and cursed his family for a generation. In general, I'd love to be able to say to players "Come on now, we've just qualified for the Champions League, why not stick around and actually give it a crack"
