  1. The New FMCU General Discussion Thread

    In the look for a new job, I had an interview with Genk. They decided instead to sign Club Brugge's current manager. So I appliad and am now Club Brugge's new manager can't wait to show Genk they had a bad choice.
  2. [FM18] Once More 'Round the Sun

    Funny that I meet again Manuel Pherai after managing him in PSV (he was mostly a sub), and Anders Mowinckel after managing him in Strømsgodset and Djurgårdens (I signed him in Sweden).
  3. [FM18] Once More 'Round the Sun

    League - I'm taking over before the start of the league which gives me more time to prepare. After the initial 30 matches the league is divided in half, and hopefully we'll be in the top group which battles for the title. Squad - this squad is huge, way bigger than what I usually aim for, and it seems I have plenty of options. The only league requirement is to have 6 home-grown players in the match sheet. Finances - very impressive; if I need an immediate boost in quality this should be enough.

  4. There's a big problem with questions regarding a resignation. In my save I resign after I win a league/cup and move on to a different nation. Every question I receive has to do with doing badly at the club or falling out with the club, when the reason is far from that. I leave clubs just like Conte left Juventus, for example. I win and then I leave to try something different.

    Trabzonspor - Spor Toto Süper Lig - 2028/29 League - we took the lead very early on, and despite having Galatasaray on our necks the entire time, held on just enough to secure the club's first league since 1984. Ziraat Türkiye Kupası - I bet on a cup win as the league would be, in theory, more difficult to achieve, but we fell short to eventual winners Fenerbahçe. Squad - there are some weaker spots in the second options, but the base XI is young and talented. Transfers - with money to spend, quality players came in and were key to success. Finances - €12m prize for winning the league, plus next season's CL money means the club is very secure.

If the board and future manager don't sell everyone, this squad is capable of keeping this level for years to come, as they have youth and quality. As for me, off we go to other pastures.
  6. It seems balanced. My best advice would be to watch the entire first 10/15 minutes and see exactly what's going on. You can also experiment different closing down/defensive line options to see if the team presses more aggressively.
  7. General Training > Fitness

    Thanks for your reply. Since we're on topic, do you think it's beneficial to have a lighter workload towards the end of the season? I'm currently in the final month of the league and decided to change from 1 rest day (after match) to 1 day before + 1 after, in order to rest the players more and reduce the risk of training injuries. Do you have any other tips on how to manage player fitness/rest/workload?
  8. What's your tactic? It's possible you have a cautious approach, so the players will play a safe style, only really feeling urgency in scoring when the team's already losing or the match is near the end.
  9. General Training > Fitness

    Is is sustainable to have Fitness training all season long, if I want to develop a tactic/squad that focus primarily on a physical style? Or will this training regime lead to more injuries?
  10. Upvote just for this reference. I want to see a 'Rick Rude' manager who manages a team on monday morning and another on monday night But this features does exist as some users already pointed out, you can decide to only join at the end of the season as it's asked to you in the job interview. Although I don't think it's as strange as you say to have a manager leave its job to jump ship to a bigger club in the middle of the season, but it happens more in secondary leagues, as the top managers don't want to risk a bad season because they didn't have the pre-season to prepare.
  11. Percentage of wage

    Wages are a hard thing to manage because if you have a players who's not good enough then only smaller clubs will be interested in him and obviously they don't/can't afford his high wages. I prefer giving my players a higher signing bonus fee and have lower wages because it'll be easier to sell them later on.
  12. Manager face

    You can update it in the starting screen and also in the manager's profile (F2). I always change the colours of my tracksuit to suit the club I'm managing.
  13. Make South America Great Again!

    Did those results influence at all the board confidence?
  14. When using a DM (especially a Anchor Man) it doesn't make much sense to me to employ a Stopper CB, as the space he attacking is already managed by the DM. You cna still for a CB/D + CB/C combination. As for the CBs being Ball Playing Defenders, you can alternatively use the 'play from defence' TI to encourage them to play short passes.
  15. The difference I see is that you can negotiate more calmly, as many other clubs who may also be interested may not place a bid.
