  1. Welcome back to the thread of the only French team who almost won Europa League !! History and glory days... Olympique de Marseille was founded by René Dufaure de Montmirail, a French sports official, in 1892 as an omnisport club. Known as Sporting Club, US Phocéenne and Football Club de Marseille in the first five years after their foundation, the club adopted the name Olympique de Marseille in 1899 in honour of the anniversary of Marseille's founding by Greeks from Phocaea some 25 centuries earlier, with the name Olympique, coming from ancient Olympic Games. The first period of Olympique de Marseille's domination of the French League started in the early 1970s under Marcel Leclerc's presidency (1965–1972). His ambition allowed Marseille to return to the First division in 1965–66. They went on to win the Coupe de France in 1969 as well as the First division in 1971 with a record of 44 goals by Josip Skoblar, helped by Roger Magnusson. The arrival of Georges Carnus and Bernard Bosquier from Saint-Étienne helped them to win the Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France in 1972. Marseille played in the European Cup in 1971–72 and 1972–73, but were knocked-out by Ajax of Johan Cruyff and Juventus, respectively. However, success was not to last. Marcel Leclerc was forced to leave the club on 19 July 1972. The President was a stubborn man, and he threatened the whole league by threatening to withdraw his professional team from Ligue 1 because the federation refused to accept three foreign players in one team (Leclerc wanted to acquire the Hungarian star Zoltán Varga but he had already the maximum number of two foreigners in his team). But Marseille decided, instead of following Leclerc against the league, to fire him.[4] Then followed an era of crisis, with Marseille only winning a Coupe de France in 1976 and being relegated to the second division, where they played with a bunch of young local players: the Minots who allowed the team to return to First division in 1984. Éric Di Meco was one of them. On 12 April 1986, Bernard Tapie became president, thanks to Marseille mayor Gaston Defferre, and promptly built the greatest team ever seen in France. His first signings were Karl-Heinz Forster and Alain Giresse, who were bought after the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Tapie signed a large number of highly regarded players over the next few years in his pursuit of the European Cup, such as Jean-Pierre Papin, Chris Waddle, Klaus Allofs, Enzo Francescoli, Abedi Pelé, Didier Deschamps, Basile Boli, Marcel Desailly, Rudi Völler and Eric Cantona as well as appointing high-profile coaches like Franz Beckenbauer, Gérard Gili and Raymond Goethals. Between 1989 and 1992, Olympique de Marseille won four league titles in a row and the French Cup. The highlight of the club's history is winning the new format Champions League in 1993. Basile Boli scored the only goal against Italy's Milan in the final held in Munich's Olympic Stadium. That triumph was the first time ever for a French club and it made Didier Deschamps and Fabien Barthez the youngest captain and goalkeeper, respectively, to capture the title. This triumph, however, was followed by a decade of decline. In 1994, due to financial irregularities and a match fixing scandal involving then president Bernard Tapie, they suffered enforced relegation to the second division, where Marseille stayed two years before returning to the First division. Moreover, they lost their 1992–93 Division 1 title and the right to play in the UEFA Champions League 1993-94, the 1993 European Super Cup and the 1993 Intercontinental Cup. Marseille returned to the top flight in 1996 with backing from Adidas's owner Robert Louis-Dreyfus. He chose Rolland Courbis as coach, signed Fabrizio Ravanelli, Laurent Blanc, and Andreas Köpke, and Marseille finished 11th for his return. For the 1998–99 season, the team celebrated their centenary and built a team of stars: Robert Pirès, Florian Maurice, and Christophe Dugarry, culminating in a second-place finish in the French championship, behind Bordeaux and an appearance in the UEFA Cup Final in 1999, losing to Parma. Courbis left the team in November 1999 after a poor start to the season. The closest Marseille got to another trophy was when they reached the UEFA Cup Final in 2004, impressively beating Dnipro, Internazionale, Liverpool, and Newcastle United along the way. But they were beaten in the final by newly crowned Spanish champions Valencia and once again fans were forced to continue waiting for the next trophy to come along. In 2005, Marseille succeeded in winning the Intertoto Cup, beating the likes of Lazio and Deportivo de La Coruña in doing so, and earning another shot at the UEFA Cup. The club struggled in the 2011–12 season, going to the bottom of the Ligue 1 table after six matches. Nevertheless, Marseille rebounded, winning 3–0 against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, as well as a 3–0 success over rivals PSG in November of that year. Marseille ended 2011 with a good sequence, also qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League for the second season running. In February 2012, Marseille embarked on 13 games without victory, but rallied to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since winning the competition in 1993. Despite an indifferent club form, OM lost to eventual finalists Bayern Munich, and slumped to an overall tenth-place finish in Ligue 1. However, the club retained the Coupe de la Ligue for the third year running, beating Lyon 1–0 in the Final. In the summer of 2012, Deschamps resigned, and later taking on the France job. Elie Baup took over, leading the club to a surprising second-place finish in the 2012–13 season despite selling multiple key players, including Loïc Rémy, César Azpilicueta and Stéphane Mbia. Marseille returned to the Champions League, spending close to €40 million on the likes of Dimitri Payet, Florian Thauvin and Giannelli Imbula. The club were top of the table at the end of August 2013, but OM proceeded to lose all six games in Europe, suffering the ignominy of becoming the first French team, and the biggest European team to date, to have picked up zero points in a Champions League group stage. Baup was sacked on 7 December 2013, following the 1–0 defeat to Nantes at Stade Velodrome. He was replaced on an interim basis by Jose Anigo. In Anigo's brief tenure, OM went out of the two cups, and struggled, leading to continued protests and jeers by fans. The club finished sixth in the 2014 season, missing out on an important European competition place for the first time in ten years. Anigo left the club soon after, taking on an ambassadorial/scouting role in North Africa, his first post outside of the city for more than four decades. Modern days... We had a tough time with Margarita Louis Dreyfus last days at the club... No money to spend, selling our top players every year, no trophies on our shelves A new era has come with american new owner Frank Mccourt, who definitely wants to give Marseille a boost in order to be successful again which is the club D.N.A !! Stadium If you take in charge Marseille you will discover the wonderful Stade Velodrome, fully renovated in 2014, you now have a breath taking place of 67.000 fans which are going to help you to win ! It's obviously the biggest stadium available for a French Ligue 1 team so far, but you will have to be good enough to fill all the empty seats that the stadium used to have in the last years...and Marseille fans are really tough to convince so be smart ! Your facilities are also excellent, and will need few improvements OM CHAMPIONS PROJECT Marseille just got a new boss Mr Franck McCourt, american bilionnaire, which already came with his ideas and a project "OM CHAMPIONS PROJECT" The aim for him is to be on the top 3 in the league, which means in France, Champions League football, In order to achieve these goals Marseille's boss pumped some significant money last winter bringing back home Payet and some young bolld like Sanson for more than 40M€, which was a huge improvment for the squad The backroom staff had been improved as well with the likes of Zubizareta joining the club as D.O.F New boss and new President all together SEASON 2017/2018 Unexpected and cruel, Marseille reached an European Final after an incredible run with some epic games and atmosphere https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1CeuEqvVZA Rivals As you are a playing a successful club, you'll obviously have plenty of rivals, in the south of France you'll have derbies against AS Monaco and OGCN, but the main thing is Paris Saint Germain !! That's the game you MUST not lose ! You can also add Olympique Lyonnais, rivalry on and off the pitch had been brutal as hell last year, it's may be even more important to beat Lyon than PSG now ! Would you stop our 17 18 games streak without a single victory against PSG in any competitions ?? Would you be able to bring back Champions League football in Marseille instead of watching Lyon on Tv ? Kit Why Marseille ? Because you will be lucky enough to manage 3 World Cup Winners !! Because this team requires a skilled manager to take the club to another level !! Because your last victory against PSG was in 2011 !! Because you have to stop PSG dominance and Lyon provocations !! Because your stadium is the most beautiful and noisy in Ligue 1 !! Because the challenge is huge in France as you have top teams around and you're a sleeping giant !! Because your DNA is to bring back another European Trophy on our shelves !! ALLEZ L'OM
  2. I was wondering just now, what if there was a way to make a team based in, say America, but the team's regens are Mexicans. So basically, Team A is located and based in Country A, but Regens are from Country B. If that is possible, could someone teach me how to do it?
  3. https://gyazo.com/7270e62cc4bb732cd7ea0791f9827ee3 - footage of the incident Can anyone explain this?
  4. Hey. I've just got the game and am trying to use a transfer update database from FmScout. Downloaded the database and put the files in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\editor data, but cannot see them when choosing a database for a new save. Ive tried different databases and none will work. What am I doing wrong??
  5. I've started the Pentagon challenge and I'm blogging it. First post is up: https://aworldwidejourneyman.home.blog/ I'd appreciate it if you'd read and give me some pointers and a follow if you don't mind, cheers guys!
  6. Introduction (this can also be found on my blog at https://wordpress.com/view/fmmightyred.home.blog and I'll be posting updates via Twitter @FMMightyRed1) I’m not the best FM player by a long stretch, but I’ve been doing well with Liverpool and am starting to get bored. I don’t have enough time to do a long grind like dragging a club up from non-league so have been casting around for inspiration for something a little more challenging. I come up with the idea of holidaying until Christmas day and taking over at the club most rooted to the bottom of the league. I’m going to create a profile of an international footballer to avoid the dynamics penalties of being an unknown manager – mentally, I’m setting this up as an ex-international looking for a job and a relegation team being desperate enough to take a punt. My self-imposed rules are to take over at the club furthers from safety in the top league for whatever nations I’m running, I can only stay at the club for the length of my initial contract (I want this to be a serial challenge – can I become a ‘fixer’ for relegation threatened teams). I use a holiday manager and wait for the English, Scottish, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese leagues to get to 25thDecember. I’m only interested in taking a job in the top tier of any of these nations – and I’ve got to take a job at the team that is most adrift. Looking around it’s SPAL in Serie A – 8 points from safety with just two wins in 17 games (all 15 other games are losses!). SPAL were promoted from Serie C at the end of the 15/16 season and then promoted straight to Serie A the season after – last season they very creditably managed to stay up finishing in 17th. After being founded in 1907, SPAL have competed in Serie A 23 times in their history with their best place being 5thin 1959-60 – also reaching Coppa Italia in 1962. More recently, the club went bankrupt in 2005 and 2012 – so has had a very turbulent time. I last played in Serie A in FM17 I think, and that was with AC Milan – so I’m not sure what has changed other than Juventus dominating and with the way the TV rights work in Italy and a stadium of just over 16,000, I don’t think the club will be generating lots of cash for me to buy my way to success. So, if we’re assuming 40 points is the magic number to stay up – I need 34 points from 21 games (average of 1.62 points per game). I take over and assess the situation.
  7. With my other thread Blue is the Colour as my starting point i am branching out slowly towards adventures worthy of @Makoto Nakamura and his inspirational whole of Europe or A-Z of the world saves. One day I might leave England, one day I might be youth only, one day I might even attempt to be Alex Ferguson or any of the other delightful challenges on the challenge thread. But for my 1st none Chelsea foray, they say the first step of any journey is the hardest so I am making my first step a baby one. This time I will be....
  8. Hey all, I've been wanting to know how sigagames calculate the average rating of a specific player. I'm really curious on the mathematics behind and how they formulated a players average rating. If anyone in this community is an actual data analyst I'd love you're input on this . Anyway I'm off to get Woking a treble wish me luck lol. Hope you guys are have a successful managerial careers in your respective clubs.
  9. Hi people of Football Manager. So, I have this save with Micronesia. Of course, many people haven't heard of this nation and probably haven't played with them either. So simple background info, it is and island, micronation in Oceania. I have this database I created called the "ConIFA World Cup" In real life, it is totally different than the way I made it. All the Non-FIFA nations in FM19 are in this new cup. I made a save with the very small, tiny, and obscure nation of Micronesia. When the tournament started, I won my group with many suspecting that we would make it out, but later, we were drawn against. So I did the save before you play method, and kept losing. So I went looking for unbeatable tactics for small nations like Micronesia, or San Marino and the like, but to no avail. Could someone find, or make a tactic for small, unskilled national teams? ConIFA World Cup.fmf
  10. FM19: European journey - CSKA Sofia and onwards! Hello everyone! Been lurking on and off here for quite some time, and after recently picking up FM again in my spare time, I've decided to finally join the fray with a CU thread. Usually my first career on any FM game is reserved for my favorite team - CSKA Sofia, and this one will be no different I'm afraid I thought about switching to a different club for this first thread, so as not to overlap with other users, but since I've been away from the series for a few years, this will be a relatively laid-back save to begin with. We won't be aiming for major continental trophies or the Ballon d'Or, and given my dubious transfer skills a few surprises are bound to happen along the way. In terms of geography, you might have noticed the UEFA logo above - this will be our playground for the duration of the career. While obviously managing a team in one of the top 5 leagues is among my goals, it might take us some time to get there, and the lower divisions will probably come into play at some point. The Club ⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽ Club: CSKA Sofia Status: Professional Founded: 5 May 1948 Stadium: Balgarska Armia Capacity: 22,995 (18,495 seated) Nicknames: The Reds, The Armymen Honours Bulgarian First League - 31 x 🏆 1948, 1951, 1952, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1958–59, 1959–60, 1960–61, 1961–62, 1965–66, 1968–69, 1970–71, 1971–72, 1972–73, 1974–75, 1975–76, 1979–80, 1980–81, 1981–82, 1982–83, 1986–87, 1988–89, 1989–90, 1991–92, 1996–97, 2002–03, 2004–05, 2007–08 Bulgarian Cup - 20 x 🏆 1951, 1954, 1955, 1961, 1965, 1969, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1983, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1993, 1997, 1999, 2006, 2011, 2016 Bulgarian Supercup - 4 x 🏆 1989, 2006, 2008, 2011 European Cup / UEFA Champions League Semi-finals (2): 1966–67, 1981–82 UEFA Cup / UEFA Europa League Round of 16 – 1998–99 Objectives As you can see, it's been a while since The Reds have been crowned Champions of Bulgaria, although they did win two Cup trophies in the past decade, together with one Supercup. Hence, our immediate goal with CSKA Sofia will be to end the cycle of Ludogorets domination, who have 7 domestic titles in a row as it stands. Next up we will try to gradually re-establish CSKA on the European scene, starting with a return to the group stages, where the team last featured in 2010–11 (Europa League Group L, 4th place). I will also try to improve the financial situation as much as I can, boost the national team with CSKA players, and push the board to invest in the club's facilities. Might add a few goals to this list as we go, but this should do for now. Win the Bulgarian First League ❌ Retain the Bulgarian First League ❌ Win the Bulgarian Cup ❌ Retain the Bulgarian Cup ❌ Win the Bulgarian Supercup ❌ Group Stage Europa League ✔️ Knockout Phase Europa League ❌ Group Stage Champions League ❌ Knockout Phase Europa League ❌ Have a current CSKA player score a brace in a Bulgarian national team game ❌ Have a current CSKA player score a hat-trick in a Bulgarian national team game ❌ Have at least 6 out of 11 starting players in a Bulgarian national team game ❌
  11. Hi all, So I won't be using it for my main save but i wanted to use editor in another save just for some fun. When i try to load the database in editor however, the file won't show when choosing a database despite me double checking it was in the folder I selected. Can anyone help?
  12. a simple question that post here but no one answer:
  13. Hi can Football Manager 19 be played on the new Surface Go? (Not fm19 touch.)
  14. Okay, after monitoring Non-FIFA football for a while, I was starting to see how unfair all those FA's in ConIFA and the NF-Board were being treated. Jersey recently tried to join UEFA but failed after being rejected 49 votes to 55 (basically 6 yes, 49 no's). http://www.uefa.com/video/includerjw.html?vid=0&drawUrl=/insideuefa/livestream/about-uefa/organisation/congress/configvideo.json So I was thinking. What if a new database was created to hold one of those Non-FIFA teams. So I decided on the bio region of Cascadia. Here is their FA website https://cascadiafootball.org/ They had a pretty good run in the 2018 ConIFA World Cup, getting 6th place for their debut! Cascadia is a bioregion named after the Cascade Mountains. It consists of Northern California, Washington State, Oregon, some of Idaho, British Columbia in Canada, and the bottom panhandle of Alaska (if that's what it is even called!). The independence movement only takes Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. That is how the Cascadia Cup came to be when the three biggest teams in that region (Portland Timber, Seattle Sounders, and Vancouver Whitecaps) came together and formed a family friendly rivalry cup. So, I decided to search the internet for any ideas for a league or jerseys, and, voila! I found a fantasy logo (more like fantasy league and jersey) post by BagelHK. http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/107687-cascadian-football-association-all-done-springfield-and-victoria-added/ So this is what they had to say, "Alright, so. Last year when I was still in high school, this guy decided that he wanted to join the Cascadian independence movement. For those unfamiliar, Cascadia is a hypothetical nation typically composed of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, although borders vary. They have a pretty sweet flag, and you'll see it around the Pacific Northwest fairly frequently, but it's mostly a symbol of regional pride, rather than an expression of secessionist spirit. However, there are some (like the guy at my school) who genuinely do want Cascadia to become a sovereign nation. So I got to talking with my bud Griffin about how if Cascadia were to become a country, we'd love it if they had soccer leagues structured like Europe's countries. The result is the Cascadian Premier League, and to a more limited extend Cascadian Leagues 1 and 2, and the Cascadian Football Association–the governing body of soccer in Cascadia. It's structured like this: 20 teams in the CPL, with the bottom 3 being relegated to League 1. We're up in the air on if there would be playoffs or not to determine a champion. The top 2 teams from League 1 are automatically promoted, and the next 4 play for the last promotion spot. Just as in the CPL, in League 1 the bottom 3 are relegated, with the top 2 teams of League 2 promoted directly, and the third spot going to the winner of a 4-team playoff. There are also a few non-league teams scattered about." I loved this post so much. It was a great concept, but they never finished League 1 and 2. And no, i'm not implying that they should. But on the post, they made all the teams in the Premier League with badges, kits, and awesome backstories. Just read it for yourself! They also say, "I've taken inspiration from raysox's Yakball and APL series, as well as pcgd's America League..." So I looked at both of those posts. Yakball is a fictitious sport, but the America's League was just what I wanted to see, another fantasy football (soccer) league. http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/91573-the-america-league/ Basically, pcgd redid the American football pyramid. With the American Prem, and Leagues 1 and 2, and creating totally new fictional teams. So, looking through that post, I saw a comment (pg. 17) from someone saying they wanted that fantasy league in Football Manager (2010). So, the comment just below it (from the creator) said it was already done. http://it.reddit.com/r/footballmanagergames/comments/1giun3/america_premier_league_v10_three_tiers_all_set/ I downloaded the file and looked through the logos. They were very well done. So I was wondering, with that Cascadia fantasy league already posted, with logos, kits, and everything, could someone please, please make the Cascadia database in FM19? ---------------------------------------------- FINAL CASCADIA DATABASE AND GRAPHICS ARE HERE!!!!

  15. I'm make a huge system and i need create a competition where only 3 teams will promoted and all others will be relegated to lower level (from 5th level to 6th). The competition it's basic domestic league where the first team (champion), second (runner-up) and third at the end of the season will promoted. This isn't the only difficulty, however. Also i need that this system work without regard the amount of teams in the division (one year will there 16 teams, anothe will there 18 or 21). Always, will be promoted 3 teams and will be relegated all others. How I could to create this?
  16. Woking FC - a takeover So my first game on FM19 will be with the team that were just down the road when i grew up. I am a Gooner at heart but Woking is still the first team i saw live in their relative heydays on the mid 90's. The aim here is to take the side from the doldrums of the Vanarama Conference South to the lofty heights of the Premiership. Club History Woking Football Club are a semi-professional side based in Woking, Surrey. Formed in 1889 the club play at the Kingfield Stadium (Named the Laithwaite Community Stadium for sponsorship reasons) and are nicknamed the Cardinals or the Cards. Whichever you prefer. Now in the 6th tier of English football after their relegation last season, the club is looking to rebuild and in the short term get themselves into the league football season for the first time. A feat the club nearly achieved in 1995 and 1996 where they came 2nd two years on the trot just behind Stevenage on both occasions As you can see there is some cup history with 3 FA Trophies to our name coming in 1994, 1995 and 1997 highlighting how dominant Woking were in non-league football at one point. It was during this time that Woking famously took than Premiership side Coventry to an FA Cup 3rd round replay where a last minute goal prevented the tie going to extra time. Finances Finances are especially key in non-league games as you need the money in order to make the jump from semi-professional to professional status. I am pleased to say that the club are in the black and are looking pretty good with £160k in the bank The finances mean we can go and add some new players to the squad with an extra £2k or so per week available to offer to new signings but we will have to make do with no transfer fee budget for the time being. Expectations Having been relegated last season, i was expecting relatively high expectations by the board and i wasn't too wrong as the Board demand we finish in the play-off spots (Top 7) which nicely aligns with the Media's pre-season expectations where they predict us to finish in 7th as well However, as you can see the odds between 2nd and 7th are exactly the same, meaning it will be tight. Relative moneybags Billericay are going to be tough, whilst Welling had a decent squad and Torquay have history of being a League side so shouldn't be underestimated either.

A few tips and interesting dynamics of such a challenge - Pushing the financial limits of your club knowing you just need to win the league and you can resign.
  18. The Youth Factory Cesena This career update is created as apart of the Youth Academy Challenge link too it can be found here. I post updates there too but will do more detailed ones here. Because of said challenge I follow the rules of it, and too give a short summary. The most important thing you would need too know is the fact I am not allowed too do any transfers in. Outside the yearly youth recruitment of course. I am free too do transfers out of the club. As apart of the setup I simulated a year too get a previously unplayable club into the Lega Pro A/B/C stages of the Italian league (3rd level). My choice of these clubs as you might have guessed by now was Cesena. Furthermore the Challenge asks you to start without former experience or badges making my manager look rather useless as the picture below will illustrate. Spoiler below contains seasonal short summary
  19. I'm trying to download an add-on to the game, but the add-on won't load. Usually, the add-on appears in the 'editor data' folder in the FM19-folder, as a .fmf file. But for some reason now it doesn't. And it is not only with this particular add-on I'm having problems with. I have been having problems with the downloading add-ons from Steam ever since I got Football Manager 2019. It's been completely fine playing previous versions. 18, 17, 16 and so on... but with 19, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This is getting really frustrating because I need this add-on to enjoy the game properly. If someone could help me with this problem, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  20. Hello everyone. I have a couple of questions for advanced fm editor users. 1.) Is there a way, to import new teams for a new competition from xml file. Where can I find a template for it? Itt should speed up my process of creating teams for my 40+ new competition. 2.) Can I somehow tell editor to automaticly set the team logo, kits & colors for the combinations of the foreground and background color I added? If not, where can I found the settings of the logo? (Currently all my new teams have blue logo and kits, which is not so good) 3.) Is there a way to create a competition level to be like for example: XY competition (level 4) which has regional groups based on the counties of the nation, but some of these counties has sub groups. So can I set the parent competition settings like XY comp. (0 teams) > XY county (0 teams) > X group (12 teams) and XY comp. (0 teams) > XY county (0 teams) > Y group (12 teams) If this is possible, will FM know that these groups should have about the same amount of teams, so there will not be a fixture like X group has 5 teams, Y has 19 teams? Also is it possible to make a promotion/relegation playoff for these to subgroup, if there is 2 subgroup on level 4, but 3 on level 5? 4.) Also because of the regional levels, the cup is like: Each county has it's qualification subcup, and the winner will continue in the parent cup with the teams from the 3 competition levels above. How can I acheive this? If you have some good tutorials for this tasks, please let me know Thanks for your help in advance
  21. He may not have come forward as the secret footballer publicly, but there's no escaping that he's venturing into management! One of my all-time favourite Cambridge United players is my new persona for my latest thread. David Barry Kitson, or Big Dave'll do. Set up with realistic attributes with a solid base to build on. He believes in developing young local players, but would rather leave the backroom staff to deal with them! This is the basis of the club I love. After settling in League 2 for 3 seasons after a long stint in non-league, we're now looking to build on it and push up the league. However the budget isn't there and key players of previous years haven't been replaced - Uche Ikpezu and Luke Berry! I'm going to going into full detail within the save myself, no IRing, plug and play and I will be looking to develop the crop of youngsters we currently have. Next update will be after the pre-season!
  22. The Save: It's a journeyman save which will probably take me right the way through FM19. I start at Cork City and try to build my way up the top. Like my previous thread, I'll mix career updates with narrative. I've been playing FM since FM16 but I've only every played as Top 6 or mid-table teams in the top leagues of Europe. Now if I was being smart about this, I'd: A: Try and manage at a lower level club to give myself some experience before diving into the deep end to manage a 2 star reputation team. B. Try a test save so I can get the hang of FM19. But **** it, I'm diving right in. The Club: To start off with, I'm going to be playing as Cork City FC. They play in the SSE Airtricity League, the top tier of Irish football. They're defending champions and so the challenge would be to retain the title (a task Cork City failed to do in real life, relinquishing the title to competitive rivals Dundalk) and to do well in Europe and build my reputation before leaving. By Irish standards, doing well in Europe would be making the group stages of either of the two European competitions as Dundalk did a couple of year ago. Here's the stadium, Turner's Cross: The crest: And the mascot, Corky the cheetah: And now for the most important part, the manager! Tony Cochrane: As I've said earlier, there'll plenty of narrative to this save so you'll be seeing Tony a lot. A Cork native, he played for Cork City FC from age 18 to 27 at which point he suffered a career ending injury. He got his coaching badges at 30 and, after doing nothing with his life for the past four years, has decided to go into management. If anyone's interested, here's the league setup I have to start.
  23. Dear All I wonder if you can help. I have bought FM19 on disk and loaded the disk into the drive, I have accepted the T&C and input my activation code into steam. However from that point the game just will not download. it is constantly stuck on 0 bytes. I have read a bit on various forums and tried to clear the cache, verify the game and change the servers but nothing seems to work. I have also uninstalled Steam and re installed it. Would anyone be able to help me as its getting frustrating that I can't dosas theme. PS I am not a technically person, so any help in baby language would be appreciated. Thanks for any help Rob
