  1. Decided to fire up FM17 for one last save before the new version. Have downloaded a new season transfer update and started as the lower league team I keep an eye on - Yeovil Town. Let's see if I can take them one step further than their Championship appearance a few years ago!
  2. FM17 Youth Academy Challenge

    Against the rules as far as I know. @Makoto Nakamura set up a thread last year for a youth challenge of add on leagues. Perhaps this could be done again?
  3. FM17 Youth Academy Challenge

    Monmouth Town 2017/18 Table | Past Positions | Season Review | Transfers | Finances Season Summary An okay first season in Wales with The Kingfishers where we started strongly but faded quite badly. We looked on target to make the top six group but missed out on the last day, and in the end went close to the relegation spots but were never really in danger of going down. Happy to survive with a pretty thin squad, with enough to suggest we are not far away from being competitive with the top sides. The only transfer was a GK before I took over. The finances are a concern - hopefully our first European appearance is not too far away. Youth Intake Youth Candidates | Wood | Bamford | Watkins | Wright First youth intake was not too bad. Best player is striker Kristian Wood who will go straight into the first team, as will midfielder Bamford.

    I'm also back in for another attempt. Bulgaria is the country I've settled on.
  5. FM17 Youth Academy Challenge

    Had taken a break from my failed youth attempts and started a dafuge challenge but I can't get into it as this keeps calling me back. I need to settle on a club/nation. Thinking Wales or Northern Ireland (I like starting really low) but open to suggestions.

    That sucks, and definitely a game breaker.

    @DazRTaylor what happened to the Samoa save? I followed the first season but now looks like it is gone?
  8. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    I love small nation international only saves. Haven't done one for a while but a few years back I nearly got Namibia and Vietnam to the World Cup. There used to be a challenge in the challenge forum to take on nations who hadn't appeared in the World Cup before and try to get them there. Good times.

    I've just started my Cook Islands youth only save and it would be great if someone did a similar save. There is not many saves on here in Oceania so would be nice to follow someone trying a similar career.
  11. I really like this overview. What time of each year do you record it? And maybe a dumb question but where can you see average attendance?
  12. Great read @Jupjamie. A question - how do youth intakes work with amateur clubs? Do your good prospects get pinched much? Looking at a similar save but I am be amateur for the first few years at least.

    Edit: had a rethink on my career in Belgium. Watch this space.
  14. FM17 Youth Academy Challenge

    After several months away from FM I am looking to start a new game and of course the youth challenge is drawing me back in, despite failing terribly in previous attempts. Just trying to settle on a team now - thinking about Merthyr Town to build a Welsh dynasty in England (assuming most regens would be Welsh?) or starting a 'police academy' with Met Police. Or possibly a country not as daunting to take on. Any ideas?

    Thanks. I have holidayed two seasons to get Ribeira Brava in Portugal to come up who I had an enjoyable but failed attempt with last year. The first season will be tricky - starting squad of 12 with best midfielder and best centre back both leaving in pre-season. So I have my back up GK playing left wing and a grey player at DM. Looking forward to intake day...
