  1. I couldn't find one due to the league structure changes. I just used the 10.2 update instead. Not much difference apart from player transfers and they won't matter as those players won't be around once you get high enough
  2. National Team Season 1 - 2018/2019 I never expected anything in the first year but I do think I managed to exceed expectations in the National Team. I think we done very well in the Nations League, finishing 3rd with 5 points. Could have beaten Moldova aswell but they equalised in the 95th minute. We were also very unlucky against Malta with a 94th minute equaliser going against us. Berardi is my current top scorer, with 3 goals for me, which is the only 3 goals he has scored for San Marino. He is rated as our best player and only 22, so even though he is on the wing, I hope he can overtake the great Selva soon. We have been pushed up to 196th in the world rankings and I hope strong showings in the Quals will increase this. I'm hoping for a 4th place finish, above Israel and Malta which is where I currently sit. It will be tough to get anything from Denmark and England, and I will have to hope to nick a point or two off Romania. I have already put Baldacci in my national team squad and will look to start bringing off the bench in my next set of fixtures.
  3. Finally got round to starting this, and have finished the first season now. Season 1 Review - 2018/2019 I decided to take over the national team as well as the club team from day one, in the hope that I can get the tactics similar at this early stage. This could help the youngsters coming through, not only at my club side but the local San Marino teams too. Firstly, our start with the club side of things: San Marino Calcio I decided to try and keep it as homegrown as possible and place a few rules on the players that I can sign. I would only sign when I absolutely had to, (in terms of long term injuries or players being sold), or I could sign San Marino nationality players that need game time. I was hoping that this would force me to play the youngsters as soon as possible and that this would aid their development. This meant that I only ended up signing 2 players this season, both coming in the second half of the season, and both because of long term injuries. (Although I think the AI had signed some players before I took over). I thought it was a decent season to be fair, we only lost 5 games, a record beaten by only the champions of the league, although 14 draws need to be bettered next year. Our defence was great but we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. This is highlighted by the fact that our top 2 scorers was a midfielder (Gasperi with 10) and a winger (Gasperoni with 8). As our self imposed transfer ban, I'm hoping that our strikers find form next season. We didn't lose a game in the whole of 2019, only conceding 6 goals in this time aswell. This equates to 17 games, although 6 were 0-0 draws. If we can carry this on, I don't see why we can't get promoted next season. I forgot to get a screenshot of the Youth Candidates when they became available but I did tag 5 of the players (only 1 or 2 will be good enough for our club, but the others are likely to do something at National Team level) Annoyingly, our best youth product was Italian only nationality so did not get a tag. I won't not use him because of this but he will be below others in the pecking order that are SM nationality. I think Baldacci's determination could see him become a regular starter for the National team, but all in all I'm happy for the variety as the other 4 will cover all of defence and midfield which means I shouldn't struggle for good players in positions for the National team. Towards the end of the season, I gave Baldacci and Casadei some game time off the bench, and some starts for the former. This resulted in Baldacci getting his first goal for the club on the last game of the season to secure 4th place with the winner in a 3-2 win. I will try and get some more game time next season for these 2 especially. Our best X1 mirrored nearly exactly our strongest eleven apart from Grandoni at LB (he was used as a sub) and Marconi should have taken his place (7.08 rating apposed to 6.97). Our 2nd top scorer in Gasperoni didn't make it, but I rotated the 2 winger spots between 3/4 players as they all performed well so that's not too surprising. There was even a spot on the bench for youth recruit Gabriele Baldacci 19a. ( 1 goal in 8 games 6.8 rating) Next season, I see no reason why we can't challenge the top spots more and maybe sneak into the playoffs, especially if our defence remains tight. The board just want top half again, which I am happy with. It's great to have low expectations, means less chance of getting sacked suddenly. Sorry for the long post, I will put the NT in it's own separate post.
  4. Thanks, I was away from FM though so wondered if anyone had them listed as I couldn't look them up. Wow! Thanks man! Much appreciated! legend!
  5. Hey all, This is probably a stupid question and something that has answered before (not that I could find) but does any one have a list of the key attributes for each player position and duty? I'm bored at work without FM and want to create a spreadsheet where I can input the player attributes and have it tell me their best position and duty. I'm doing a mainly youth save so it will be handy for retraining and development etc. Thanks in advance!
  6. Well done Charlesbeams it was great to follow this! Would be great to have another one again!
  7. I'm tempted to put him back at Lazio haha. Can you leave him unemployed for this season? If he hasn't got anywhere then next year i will choose somewhere.
  8. Not too bad!! Hatton is starting to get good at this managing malarkey!
  9. It's a great stepping stone!! Can't have done too badly if a league one club came and plucked me out from the conference!!
  10. I'm actually surprised, as a top international footballer that wanted to be a manager, he didn't do his licences when he was still playing.
  11. Stockport sounds good to me! Have I done my License yet? i noticed that i was studying for the C license when at Bromley.
  12. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Knew that i shouldn't have chosen Bromley although only a stat of 1 in motivating isn't going to get you anywhere!! Am I being linked with any other jobs yet?
  13. Can i go for Bromley?? Start at the bottom I'm still holding out for the Columbian National Team
  14. I blame the early years at Everton for not hitting 1000 games. If they had the same faith as some of the other clubs with the rest, I may have been record appearance maker out of us lot! The staff stats do look crap, if he doesn't have anything when the new leagues are added can we still elect for him to go somewhere?
  15. I fear that he is winding down to retire next season. One season in England, where he probably get relegated, and then off he goes.
  16. Blackburn struggled last year with the addition of Europe...and they have qualified again. Hopefully bringing Hatton in will bring some more stability!
  17. GET IN THERE!!! Come on Los Cafeteros!!! (Yes i did have to Wiki that) Hopefully I will deliver the word cup and then retire from international on a high! He can't keep going for much longer!!!
  18. Maybe he thinks that there is unfinished business in England after how poorly he was treated at Everton. Plus he's pretty much won everything in Italy now.
  19. I hope that as Hatton has Leadership rating of 19, he will become manager....maybe he could become player manager of Juventus soon!
  20. Is anyone else thinking that as the players get older, they are more likely to fall down the league pyramid? As in at 32 years old, they won't be playing for their respective team for much longer and that we could see some more relegations? I'm hoping not for Hatton though!! Seeing as players in Italy seem to play for their respective teams until 40!!!!
  21. Is Valderama still top capped player for Columbia? If so, Hatton is only 1 cap away!!!
  22. oooooo move to spain is good!!! don't think athletico will get relegated anytime soon!
