  1. Well done Andrew Haines Obed Malolo did well for me in the first few seasons in Veikkausliga at HIFK in FM14!
  2. Congrats Taunton, great you stuck with the save even when things didn't seem to progress!
  3. HIFK - 2022 Veikkausliiga Veikkausliiga Media Prediction: 1st Board Expectation: Win the Title My Target: Win the Title League Table: 1st ǁ Position Graph Another easy win. Suomen Cup Fixtures An awful game against TPS in the Semis means we won't be retaining the trophy. Veikkausliiga Liigacup Group Stage ǁ Knock-Out Stages We made it out of the group stage comfortably again but disappointingly lost to Honka in the semi final. Not a good year for domestic cups. Champions League / Europa League Fixtures ǁ Europa League Group Stage We went past Cliftonville and parent club Kobenhavn very easily in the qualifying stages. In the playoff we drew Slovan Bratislava, which should be straightforward, however two very poor games and a last minute equaliser we suffered in the return leg meant no Champions League Groups for HIFK this year. In the Europa League we were surprisingly very competitive in the group stages and were up there with Bordeaux and Sevilla throughout. A surprising 4-2 away win against Sevilla sealed our place in the last 32! HIFK Transfers ǁ Squad - Defence ǁ Squad - Attack The transfer of the season was bringing club legend Fredrik Mattsson back to the club, he was released by his club in Romania and I did not hesitate to bring him back. You might remember his sale for over 5 million made the club turn pro and kickstarted our success. I also managed to bring in quite a few youngsters on a free, mainly from Denmark. Key Players Ivica Nimac: Great signing on a free, makes an excellent box to box midfielder. Colin Mason: Continues to excel down the left. Fredrik Mattsson: The legend is back! Bas van Beek: Excellent playmaker brought on loan from PSV. Hope to keep him on for a bit more. Other News Finances – No Champions League makes quite a difference, but we managed to break even.

  4. Nice one Thebaker, hopefully going pro will make the difference for you! One trip to the group stages in Europe will sort your finances out.
  5. I have used a pretty similar tactic since FM12 which has been working up until now. It takes a bit of time for my team to get used to it, but when they do it runs along ok. I have one attacking and one defensive set-up, which I only change depending on the opposition, I don't like tweaking anything else.
  6. HIFK - 2021 Veikkausliiga Veikkausliiga Media Prediction: 1st Board Expectation: Win the Title My Target: Win the Title League Table: 1st ǁ Position Graph This was quite a comfortable win, it is becoming easy to win the league now. Suomen Cup Fixtures A relatively simple path to the final, with a tight 1-0 over second division side MYPA. Veikkausliiga Liigacup Group Stage ǁ Knock-Out Stages We have finally won this one! After getting through the group stages comfortably we beat Honka on the way and our rivals HJK easily in the final. Champions League Fixtures ǁ Champions League Group Stage We made it to the Champions League Group Stages for the first time! We did it quite comfortably, beating Jeunesse Esch, Elfsborg and BATE without major problems on the way. We didn't disgrace ourselves completely in the group stages as well, getting a win over Galatasaray and a draw with Ajax, but ultimately coming last in the group. Ver y happy with the money we got! HIFK Transfers ǁ Squad - Defence ǁ Squad - Attack A lot of movement again as I tried signing good young players, extending the loan deal of Coquinho was excellent. I was very happy to sign an excellent Finnish player in Kim Iljäs from Schalke and I think he could become our next DM for years to come. Key Players Niklas Friberg: Solid right back bought from FC Inter. Colin Mason: Managed to pick him up on a free, very good signing. Ezequiel Moyano: Excellent striker brought in on a free from Agentina. Kim Demir: Another good season from the Swede. Other News Finances – Champions League money is awesome. Next Season Targets 1. Retain the title. 2. Reach an European Group Stage. 3. Start signing young players to comply with HG rules, failed to do so last year. I think that domestically we are starting to dominate now, so our focus has to be in Europe. Reaching the Group Stages will be vital for our finances and the nations coefficients.

  7. Perfect, will do! Gone are the times I had hours and hours to play FM, this is what marriage does to you lol Solid first couple of seasons ri916 and congrats on turning pro! I had around £4M in the bank when HIFK turned pro.
  8. XaW - understand your decision to go somewhere and solid first season in Belarus. I am due a couple of updates and unlock XaW I am not getting bored of our domestic dominance We have been able to get to the group stages in Europe three seasons in a row and got some good results. The quality of the Finnish league is improving too, now 11 out of 12 teams in the top flight are fully professional and quite a few players from central america and south africa are playing in the league. Even though I am massively enjoying the game I am not able to play it too regularly.Therefore I wanted to ask whether any FM14 completions still count even after FM15 is out? I am some way off completing the challenge but am really enjoying this save and am thinking of skipping FM15 if I am still into the save. Hopefully I will be able to post the updates today!
  9. Haha, I have to say I didn't expect the national side to be doing so well, the path may not have been the hardest, but a World Cup win is a World Cup win.
  10. Twellman24, good luck in Belarus! HIFK did it! We beat BATE easily and are through to the Group Stages! Tottenham, Galatasaray and Ajax will be our opposition. Looks weak on paper, but Tottenham have won the Europa League 3 times since the save began and Galatasaray lost last years CL final on penalties to Barcelona. Will be delighted if we nick a couple of draws, but just happy with the ridiculous cash we got going through.
  11. Maybe, with a but of luck in the draw we could do it. I am actually quite a bit into the season already, have just beaten Jeunesse Eschen or something like that 14-0 on aggregate in the Second Qualifying Round. Am playing Elfsborg, who we beat last year, in the next round. Fancy us to go through that and then there is one more to go... EDIT: Got through against Elfsborg 6-3 on aggregate and BATE are the last hurdle before the group stages. Think we have a decent chance!
  12. HIFK - 2020 Veikkausliiga Veikkausliiga Media Prediction: 2nd Board Expectation: Challenge for the Title My Target: Challenge for the Title League Table: 1st ǁ Position Graph We didn't start as well this season, but still had finished some distance ahead of the chasing pack, winning the title with 4 games to go. Suomen Cup Fixtures This time we did it the hard(er) way, only playing top tier opposition until the final and beating Honka 2-1 after extra time in the final. Veikkausliiga Liigacup Group Stage ǁ Knock-Out Stages The only domestic title to elude us, this time we were knocked out in the semi final. Champions League / Europa League Fixtures ǁ Europa League Group Stage This year we had quite a few European matches, and our first proper compaign in Europe. In the Champions League we knocked out Elfsborg comfortably before being knocked out by Dinamo Zagreb in the Third Quaifying Round. We should have taken a lead from our home game, but they were a lot better in Zagreb. When we were drawn against Trabzonspor in the Europa League Playoff I was not too optimistic. But we were able to draw away and beat them at home to make it to a Group Stage for the first time. Atlético Madrid, Bordeux and Anji is not exactly what I wanted. But I was pleased we were not the whipping boys of the group. Heavy defeats against Atlético and Bordeaux away were compensated by a double over Anji and our best result: a 2-0 at home against Bordeaux. In the end it was only our aggregate result against Bordeuax which knocked us out. As a result of this Finalnd moved, from 28th to 21st in the coefficients. It doesn't get us any extra places but is a significant improvement. HIFK Transfers ǁ Squad - Defence ǁ Squad - Attack Finances were a lot better this year, but I still didn't splash out on players. The loan signing of Coquinho from Santos was especially good for the latter parts of the season. I still haven't been able to find an excellent right back though, after März's departure. Key Players Ulan Konysbaev: Another good season by Ulan, was elected Fan's Player of the Year. Heikki Lindholm: He was only supposed to be a back-up player, but with injuries to the other strikers I gave him quite a lot of games and he delivered. Joonas Jokinen: Prolific this season, even though he gets injured too much. Kim Demir: Even though I managed to keep Berglund, Kim Demir started improving a lot after spending a couple of seasons as a but player. Is my first choice AMC now. Other News Finances – The European money has been awesome, if we keep getting to a Group Stage in Europe our money worries will be eased. Next Season Targets 1. Retain the title. 2. Reach an European Group Stage. 3. Start signing young players to comply with HG rules, failed to do so last year. I think that domestically we are starting to dominate now, so our focus has to be in Europe. Reaching the Group Stages will be vital for our finances and the nations coefficients.

  13. Another excellent season XaW. I really like the look of Alexander Garcia, it seems like you can find some excellent players in Central America. Howe are the foreign quota rules in Hungary? I see you have quite a lot of Hungarians in your squad still. The rules are pretty relaxed in Finland, and because there is a real lack of quality in Finnish players I tend to look from abroad, mainly Denmark and Sweden.
