  1. In true Hendon style my first signing is a Bulgarian, Georgi Yordanov I believe was even one of the Bulgarians I had back in FM09 whilst playing as Hendon so when I see his name on the free transfer list I quickly offered him a trial in order to be able to offer a contract and thankfully he was happy to join the club, now to sign the rest of the squad as I love a total restructure in the first season if I can
  2. Finally got Hendon after 2 days of reloading, I did want Bashley but considering there is zero chance of that happening I had to settle for my old club Hendon as I loved being them in this challenge on FM09, will get some screenshots sorted out later and post a pre-season update
  3. Been trying to get Hendom for quite some time, might end up going for someone else as I did Hendon on FM09 and Bradford Park Avenue in FM10, maybe Worksop Town as they play in orange which is nice hehe
  4. I shall be doing this for the 3rd edition in a row, doubt I will post screenshots for this one but I might end up doing so when I get started
  5. Have made quite a few changes again, realising my ideas on how to set regional divisions was wrong as I assumed you had to set a regional area but realise I can now set 4 cities as criteria for the preference in clubs. I did try a complicated setup at first to try and make it extremely accurate but it seemed to struggle badly in selecting sides that resulted in around 20% retained clubs in the correct level 5 divisions. So instead I've opted to use just 1 city for each division and then the nearest 10/11 clubs to that city get selected and this has resulted in around 75% accuracy which is not too bad. I ran a 10 year trial of the league overnight and found that clubs seemed to lose value by around 50% so I've just added some prize money to the Danish Premier & First divisions, not a massive amount but enough that should see each club in those divisions grow in stature by around 50% after 10 years which I think is realistic given other leagues teams do appear to grow by that much. This will need to be tested again to be 100% sure it doesn't allow Danish teams to grow too big. I am also thinking I might set all the teams in the level 5 divisions to just have that level and no set league in hope that once it assigns teams for the first division it will result in near 100% accuracy for following seasons (seeing as I can't add 8 team, 11 team, 14 team, 15 team and 16 team different leagues anyway without it being messed up I can't build it to be 100% accurate whatever I do but this will result in less changes after the first season which is probably best in the long run). I like how if you delete the right code in the file and you re-add the league/cup you can change anything you want about it, ie set prize money for top divisions etc and different promotion rules, nice little tip I recieved from this forum and thread
  6. Right I've sorted the cup out after deleting the entry using the notepad and re-adding the cup which enables me to set divisions, I've made it a bigger cup then usual so it actually includes all teams (a bit like the English FA Cup so it includes lower leagues also). Still have a problem with the regional divisions changing as there are no regional areas for Denmark in the game and it doesn't seem to let me add them into the game which leaves me trouble setting each division a regional area to select teams from. I've gone and put all the teams to have a prefered division for level 5 but that doesn't work, when I tested it teams still got moved reguardless of them having there actual division set as being the prefered one for level 5.
  7. I think what I'll try is rename my created level 5 as the standard "Danish Lower Division" and then re-name the original "Danish Lower Division" to "Danish Lower Division Tier 2" and set it as level 6 to see if that helps with the cup. Then trial it again to see if the regional settings work and the level 5 teams get priority in the danish cup instead of the tiers 6 to 9 teams instead.
  8. Yeah the Danish Cup seems to take teams from the old level 5 which is called Danish Lower Division but that contains every team from level 5 to level 9 so I lowered it to level 6 and added a new level 5 and changed teams into the right teams. Will have a go at regionalising the teams that make up the level 5 leauges and those above them as they are most likely to be relegated into the level 5. Not sure I have the knowledge of Danish geography to do the teams below level 5 so will end up sucking them up to be in random leagues when they get promoted.
  9. I thought so, thanks for the response Dale, as things stand I have made the 8 sub divisions but instead made 7 divisions with 10 teams and 1 division with 11 teams. Made it so the winners of each league get promoted automatically and the 2nd placed teams go into a play off against each other for the 9th promotion spot (there are 9 promotions in real life). It's reasonably close but the teams re-arrange themselves in the 2nd season which is a bit frustrating and also they don't all enter the Danish cup but the teams below them do. So have a few things to work out but it'll be playable at least, just not exactly like the real Danish level 5
  10. Have been trying to re-create the Danish leagues down to level 5 but it's quite a complicated setup as there are in total 8 divisions but they all hold between 8 to 15 teams and only feed certain regional leagues above them. The 8 leagues also have different fixture rules, the league of 8 play 3 times and the laegue of 14 & 15 play 2 times but again I seem to only be able to set the whole level to either play 2 or 3 times which messes up with either the smaller leagues not playing enough or the bigger leagues playing too many. They also have different promotion rules as well, some with auto and some with play off but it seems I can only set the whole level to have set promotion rules. Will try again by removing the level 5 group setting and try to add them individually but I've no idea if that would work. So basically the question is can you add a new level that has different number of teams with different promotion and fixture settings or does the whole level have to play to the same set of rules
  11. Just setup a league cup final game against either Arsenal or Liverpool after we drew 2-2 away to Everton & 1-1 at home to Everton in our semi final legs
  12. Hendon Mid-Season Premier League Review Season 2020/2021 Sitting 2nd in the premier league in January and have just signed what I think is a true world class DMC to bolster my team for the last half of the season, we also have a league cup semi final tie against Everton to come and are really playing some amazing football. My old 4132 I used to get promoted upto the championship works brilliantly with good central midfielders and strikers, feel like we can score everytime we attack now! I'll do a full report with transfers and screenshots when the season ends! Hendons Season 2018/2019 Review Well the first season was all about not getting relegated, we were given a pretty decent transfer & wage budget but I simply had to look at bosmans for the main part as I felt my squad lacked realy premier league quality players. Thankfully though there does appear to be plenty of regens from top european clubs that are available on bosmans each season that can easily be part of a squad that stays in the league, come the end of the season we'd spent £25m on players and recieved £7m, my wage budget was slightly over expected but then we did spend £8m less then I agreed so adjusted the budgets and we were fine financially. I decided to play a 442 this season, mainly because my 4132 when in the championship didn't do that well and I actually got promoted whilst using this 442 so thought I'd stick with it. We conceeded alot of goals, mainly because we rarely dominated games so were under pressure quite alot and due to my defenders being average quality for the league we simply couldn't keep clean sheets. However we did score enough goals to ensure we were never really in a relegation battle and ended the season in 12th position, top goalscorer this season was Bob Baird, a Scottish regen who I signed on a free transfer after his contract with Aston Villa was up. I later sold Bob Baird the season after for £6.25m to Sheff Wednesday to help fund my aim to finish higher in the league. We did absolutely nothing of note in the cups either, mainly due to me not taking it that seriously as I wanted to avoid injuries to my first team as I didn't have the finances to replace any long term injuries. Transfers for season Hendon Season 2019/2020 Season Review This season I decided to keep with my 442 formation but aim to fill in the weaker spots of my team with better players in hope it will push me further up the table towards the european places, it didn't really work though and we still struggled to dominate games, even against teams I really expected us to which was quite dissapointing. We did have a better season though and finished in 10th place, so although a small improvement we did ensure the money kept coming into the club so we can try to afford better players so all in all this season was also a success for the club. Yet again I was busy in the transfer market but this season it was harder to find bosman players that I fancied to improve us as a team but I did find some backup players and players for the future so was still pleased with the players I was able to sign for nothing. We did spend more this season though with a total of £57m on improving the squad including a Brazilian centre back called Andre who I signed for £11.5m from Internacional, however my chairman decided in January to sell him for £20.5m to Arsenal which angered me greatly because he was my best player and was really playing very well. We also didn't need the money as we were not in debt in any form and my wages were below my wage budget but he still decided it was good business unfortunately. My top goalscorer this year was Bulgarian striker Nikolay Lazarov who was a bargain signing for £1m from Lillestrom, he went on to score 13 goals for me this season but was later sold to Everton in the summer for £10m, I was pleased with the deal because although he was my top goalscorer I was only going to try and use him as a sub next season if I could upgrade my strikers so to get £10m for him was a good deal. Transfers for season
  13. Hendons second season in the EPL saw us push up 2 places to finish 10th this season but still way off being title challengers, I am also thinking of going back to my 4132 as using the 442 in the EPL just doesn't seem to dominate games for me. Perhaps going back to my favourite tactic I used to get promotion through the leagues & sign better players will work, depends if I can buy the players needed but will see this summer.
  14. Hendons first season in the premier league resulted with us coming a very respectable 12th place, we never really challenged for top half and were closer to the relegation zone then we were to 10th but all in all I am very pleased with how things went. I did however realise very few of my squad were of sufficient ability to compete for European places so have yet again made plenty of changes with a bumper £32m budget this season (unfortunately there isn't many bosmans this season worth going for so will be harder to upgrade). Will start the new season with only 5 of my first 11 from last year keeping there places, in come a new DR, DC, MC, ML, FC & FC to complete my 442 formation that I used last season, hopefully we can try and push towards the top 10 this season but the strength of the squads in the EPL is actually very very strong with nearly all the top 10 from last season having one or more world class player in there team.
  15. After 24 games we sit in 10th place but have a real injury problem, 3 of my 4 centre backs are injured and my top 3 strikers are all out leaving me my worst backup as the only striker which makes it very hard when you play 442.
