  1. Good Luck @rlipscombe looking for ward to seeing your progress in Germany And welcome back @G-Wiz, good luck in Scotland, I had some fun their with Elgin a fewyears back
  2. Looking forward to hearing from you G-Wiz, hope the surgery goes well and you find a team you enjoy.
  3. I see the "Unwilling to Experiment" message is still a thing, I have changed my tactics, but I didn't change my formation because I don't have the players to do anything else with... I have 2 total strikers a 4-4-2 (As my Ass Man suggests) will never work... I don't get it, at least realise the tactics have changed come on...

Lamas €0 Hope that some of these guys will make a difference to my team, as you will see in the update of the games, we aren't exactly in the best way here. We need to improve, have made some tactical changes before the last two games which improved it, but we need the guys to connect together. Also having none of the Loan listed players ever wanting to join me is not helping either. Telmo Rosa looks like a future star, but Jota should be the starter at Left back. Fonseca was another great signing, and Pereira will look to get into it up front.

I made some changes in tactics for the final two games, drifiting from a counterattacking tactic to a flank crossing tactic, and we seem to be having some better times with this one. Tactic
  5. Jono Capewell | Águia Vimioso | Portugal | 2020/21 Guess Who's Back.... Yup, I am back, have decided to give this a go with FM20, after playing some FM10 this year. My Club I have been hired by Águia Vimioso in Portugal, they are a very small club from Vimioso a small town in the extreme North-East of Portugal, the stadium seats 1000, which is 1/4 of the population of the town. The first piece of news after I took the job was a denial of the possible takeover, I really hope it doesn't occur and we get a chance to develop here. The club is so small they don't even have a Wiki page in Portuguese, their only title is a 4th level group in 2016, they lost in the Promotion playoffs. Next task was to hire an assistant manager, welcome Marco Borges to the club. The Squad The Squad contains some pretty strong youngsters, being a former amateur club I have no worries with contracts, so only those I want to keep will be staying. I will be playing a 4-1-4-1 formation with fluid counter attack, it might be a hard ask at this level, but we will see. My favourite of the young players is Tiago Teixira (MC), he is only 16, but looks like he will do very well at this level. Also please let me know if none of the pictures show up when links are clicked.

Spanish Second Divsion B1 2019/20 Preseason Signings Transfers In Date Player Pos From Fee 13.07.19 Julen Arellano DL N/A Free 17.07.19 Lander AML N/A Free 24.07.19 Javi Gadea DC N/A Free 31.07.19 Iñaki Olaortua DC R.Santander €14.5k Loans In Date Player Pos From Wages 10.07.19 Raúl Vallejo MC Numantia 0% 13.07.19 Pierre Cornud DL Mallorca 50% 30.08.19 Steven Prieto ST Oviedo 0% Paid Transfers Out Date Player Pos To Fee 15.07.19 Manuel Medori AMC E.Merida €34k First note of Medori out, while he is good for this level, he could play striker, but as an attacking midfielder he wasn't needed for us right now, I got what I could and sent him off. Steven Prieto (ST) - Should be our starter, he came late so hasn't played in preseason, but I look forward to him playing a big part. Iñaki Olaortua (DC) - This guy is going to be in charge at the back, no question he will stop a lot of attacks and make a difference. Raúl Vallejo (MC) - Some great long range goals in the preseason, I can see Vallejo scoring some stunners in season, am looking forward to it. My Head of Youth Development has also made about 10 signings for the youth squad, which will be useful if injuries happen, and I am happy to let him continue doing this as they all look to be ok players who can cover for us. Tactic & Lineup My standard starting line-up here, 6 of my 7 players signed are starting, Lopez is average, but I can't find a DM, Perron, Paya, Rodri & Robert are definitely good enough for this level, we should be able to avoid relegation with this squad.
  7. The annoying part is missing out on the loan striker the second time around...going with a slow and steady improvement this time to try and avoid the issues with finances for later in the season.
  8. Thanks @2481 would you believe I spent an hour on that save (After taking over) and then windows did updates and I lost that progress, have got back past that point again, but was frustrating.
  9. I knew that would be your thoughts, but we're going there. First job to overtake our Senior Affiliate...S.Gijon.
  10. Spanish Second Divsion B1 2019/20 2.0 The Beginning Here we are as I take over CD Lealtad Villaviciosa in Spain, the club is based in Villaviciosa, a city in the North of Spain, The club is nicknamed "The Leales" (Loyals), before 2014 they had been a regional only club, but since then they have spent 4/5 seasons in the 2nd Division B, I will be aiming to get them higher and hopefully succeed to become the first club from Asturias to ever win the Spanish League Title. The two highest ranked clubs in Asturias are Real Oviedo (Just promoted to La Liga in 2018/19) & Real Sporting de Gijón who are currently in the Segunda Division. Both of these teams have their B Team in our division. League History Manager Profile Club Overview Squad 1 - Squad 2 The first season here in Spain will be tough as when you take over on July 10th there is almost a full squad signed on the books already. Our Wage budget is €64,883, and we are already spending €58,873. That means we have to make do with a lot of loans and cheap signings, unless we can get rid of some of the guys costing us lots.
  11. Wow @rlipscombe that is a stunner of a season, promoted back to back as Champions is huge. I'm just about to look into the details, but looks like you had an awesome run.
  12. Looks like it'll be a restart...still going with same club, but my save was corrupted (Oh well)
  13. Also need to catch up on the thread and see what everyone has been doing,
  14. Pretty awesome to get to go on a trip to somewhere as awesome as that for work! Taken a month back at work to get things under control again, along with busy personal life, and I finally have time to play again. Hoping to step back in today and see where I am at and if I remember what I was doing... (Should've played on the plane)
  15. Hey All, I am still alive, work got chaotic, especially in the lead up to my trip to Barbados for User Testing, but finally back home now and looking forward to cracking back into this after Christmas
