  1. Good news
  2. There was just one league game in August, and whilst we're by no means fully playing like a Pep side, there were definitely encouraging signs and here's the early table
  3. Yes, of course that will be a big challenge, I was more meaning that even though I'm 'only' managing the B Team, I still need to win the league to match Pep's achievement. I'm also going to need to get my Pro Licence this season as well
  4. Thanks Holdii I've got a feeling that the first season is going to be very tough, as he won the title with Baca B and we're only tipped for mid table.
  5. No, was talking about club logos, but have sorted it now. Had to do two things (just in case anyone else has the same issue). Had to download the English logos again, and delete a folder called 'greek'. It works fine now, although the reason why is 'greek' to me.
  6. The board determine who joins and leaves Barcelona B, so I'm not doing a transfer update this summer, but will do one at the end of the season to show the comings and goings
  7. Preseason didn't get off to the best start, but we were looking good by the end
  8. I'm probably going to regret asking (I've never managed in any South America leagues on FM, ever) but how does that even WORK?? Deportivo Cali (to me at least) appear to have played 6 more games than Atletico Nacional, and have a 10 point lead. It looks as though it's a straightforward 3 for a win, 1 for a draw, so if Nacional played those 6 games, they'd probably go top. What gives?
  9. Here are the initial tactical setups, starting with the 4-3-3 and the 3-4-3 and the team instructions, which I've initially kept the same for both setups The Goalkeeper in both tactics is a Sweeper Keeper (Support)
  10. Here is the squad I've inherited, and I think it looks pretty good
  11. Great to have you on board . Forgot to add to my previous post that I'm also looking to replicate Pep's playing style, so I'm currently building a 4-3-3 and 3-4-3, both of which he has used with Barcelona and Bayern. I'll post it as soon as they are done, and if anyone has any feedback to make them more 'authentically Pep', I'd appreciate the comments.
  12. Hello, and welcome to my FM17 save. I've decided to do something a bit different this year, and it's probably the most difficult challenge I've ever undertaken. The Challenge This challenge, as the title suggests, is based on the career of Pep Guardiola. I'm going to try to win every trophy he has managed to (including the minor ones), in the same timescale. I will also take a 'sabbatical' at the same stage he did, and will watch games during that time, posting updates from the football world. I will create the vacancy at the next club at the appropriate time, but it'll still be up to my manager to get the job, I won't re-invent myself. My Manager I have, with the help of the FM Community, managed to almost exactly replicate Pep Guardiola's attributes from the 2007/8 season, and so here he is and here are his managerial stats to date The starting point
  13. My EPL graphics work, but not Middlesbrough, Burnley or Hull's. All the other ones work including the sides promoted to League 2. Any ideas?
  14. Thankyou, most kind. Now, if I can just sort out the competition name fix and logo fix for FM17, I can begin the next challenge
