  1. Here we are again, I won the Champions League with Amathous but now we're going to Africa and there are a few rules I'm adding. I'm not allowed to sign any players. The DoF or whichever member of staff is available is also not allowed to sign any players. Even though this is a journeyman I'm not allowed to apply for any jobs, I have to be headhunted. The goalkeeper has to take all free kicks and penalties. We must always bless the rains. I won't be starting unemployed but I will be starting with the team predicted to finish bottom in the lowest ranked league in Africa which is Miracle du Sud in the Mayotte Lower League. I've also set my manager as a Mayotte native.
  2. If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there This story will follow the footsteps and struggles in the life of Nelson Mandela Jr. Yikes – I mean, with great looks like these, a disgustingly straight posture and a name like that who wouldn’t take this fine gentleman serious? If nothing else his height of 1.50cm… wait did I see that correc-oh, I did. Standing tall and proud at 1.50cm and weighing in at 151kg (????)… How can his short legs carry that much? He weighs a kilogram more than he’s got centimeters… Yes, erhm, a fine man, and quite the sense of style too. White suit with red shirt and purple tie. Flamboyant, this whalelike gentleman. “You need good suit!” was his mother’s words as he went on a shopping trip to the local tailor who was put on a hard task making a suit to match his size. These colors were the only he had in stock in large enough quantity to fit it on Nelson’s corpus. His ‘Uncle JimJom’ who’d been like a father to him his entire childhood laughed so hard he had to lay down three days straight when Nelson returned home. His mother didn’t speak to him for just about the same amount of time, instead she slapped him on the chest as she made loud noises. His mother named him Nelson Mandela Jr. as she was, and still is to this day, convinced that a roughly 70 year old –but still potent! - Nelson Mandela visited The Kingdom of Swaziland and fell in love with her. After a week of great passion, sadly Mr. Mandela had to urgently leave Swaziland. He left without leaving an email or a phone number which of course is the only way you’d ever get in touch with someone as unknown as Mr. Mandela. When Mandela Jr. once showed his mother a picture of Nelson Mandela his mother slapped him and yelled “That is not the man! I will not hear of this. Your father is beautiful and important. You have name like him, go be great man!” And thus began his journey into the world. With a name like that, who wouldn’t want him as their coach? Oh ****, I forgot to talk about his grey hair even though he is 25 years old…. This guy…
  3. Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. All football supporters have suffered the agony of hope. The "what could have been" moments. The heartbreak. The days when your **** of a striker couldn't hit water if he fell out of a ****ing boat. Barbosa at the Maracana, 1950. Messi in the final of the Copa America, 2016. Baggio in the World Cup final, 1994. Ghana at the 2010 World Cup. Bayern Munich in Barcelona, 1999. John Terry in Moscow, 2008. (Ok, if I'm being honest the last two were pretty frickin' beautiful and count among my favorite football memories. But, I digress...) For many, redemption comes in one form or another, some more glamorous than others. Titles won. Individual glories and accolades. The heartbreak simply another chapter in the broader narrative. For others, the heartbreak defines them. Haunts them. Overshadows all other accomplishments, triumphs and accolades. The moniker of the "nearly men" is applied, and supporters grow old thinking, "what if...?" This is the story of those teams. Uhh...well...another story about those teams... Since its inception in 1964, 25 different clubs have won the CAF Champions League. 19 teams have reached the Final, only to fall short: Amicale Sportive Dragons (1980. 1985) Al-Hilal Omdurman (1987, 1992) Shooting Stars (1984, 1996) Heartland (1988, 2009) Stade Malien (1965) Real Bamako (1966) Étoile Filante du Togo (1968) Simba FC (1972) Ghazl Al-Mehalla (1974) Enugu Rangers (1975) Africa Sports (1986) MC Oran (1989) Nkana Red Devils (1990) SC Villa (1991) Ashanti Gold (1997) Dynamos FC (1998) CS Sfaxien (2006) Coton Sport (2008) USM Alger (2015) This save will chronicle my attempt to bring glory to as many of these sides as possible. First of all, credit where credit is due -- the idea for this save originated with @smp20, who proposed it as a challenge during the FM15 cycle, related to the European Champions League. I've since been...err...somewhat obsessed with it. My first FMCU-documented attempt fizzled out early: [FM16] If You're Not First, You're Last. While success was only claimed in Malmo that year, that save laid the foundation for all that has come since. The second attempt was 116 pages of utter madness, spanning 18 months real-time, culminating in 2091 after claiming an obscene number of trophies with Hakan Telleus and his son, Gunnar Vikander. This was easily my favorite save of all time: [FM17] If You're Not First, You're Last (Redux). My third attempt is currently paused in the fall of 2044, where Jean Bleu has rampaged across Europe with multiple sides: [FM 18] If You're Not First, You're Last (Re-Redux). While I'm enjoying my time at Nantes in the save...I felt I needed to run this save in Africa, something I'd long thought about doing, but hadn't attempted. (Why Africa instead of South America? Asia? My daughter is Congolese, and my undergrad studies focused on sub-Saharan African politics with a particular emphasis on transitional justice in post-apartheid South Africa. The quote in the title is from Nelson Mandela.) As with before, there are generally no hard-and-fast rules beyond the concept of the save. On the club side of the shop... This is not a youth-academy-only save, even though I do enjoy developing youth and will usually focus on that. Rather, I will work within club-specific plans without any self-imposed transfer restrictions. I will leave on high -- once I've won the Champions League, I must move on. The only twist I'm adding for Africa is that I will stay on through the Club World Cup, to try my hand against the best clubs the other continents have to offer...and then I must move on. After my first club, I will only accept a position with one of the sides listed above, or a club that manages to join this elite (!?) group of "nearly men." Likewise, if a club manages to win the CL under another manager, they are removed from the challenge. On the international scene, there will be only one rule this time around -- win as many World Cups with an African nation as possible. After winning, I must move on to another African nation. And, as per usual, my saves tend to exist in a "multiverse" of sorts, so familiar faces may pop up (although they may come up in different contexts). In terms of the league setup, I have used @claassen's FM 18 African leagues (and competitions). However, to facilitate the "all African" approach to the save, I have removed foreign player limitations from the starting African leagues. If a club from a new country (e.g., Kenya) becomes eligible, the existing @claassen rules will apply. The idea here is to: (1) promote African youth, regardless of where they come from; and (2) allow me to support whatever national team I'm playing with, at my club side. The default starting leagues in Africa are the top divisions from: Algeria, Cameroon, DR Congo, Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In Europe, we have the top divisions from: Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. I've loaded all current international players, worldwide, and all players from clubs playing in European and African continental competitions. Tomorrow, we will meet our managerial hero... But before we do, let's take a quick look at the tracker I'll be using:
  4. I recently resigned from my job as the manager of Bharat FC (A club of Indian national Football League) and pretty soon got the job as the manager of Cameroon's international team. I played my first match against Swaziland in the African Nations Championship qualifying round and won 4-0. Now the problem is that my next match is after 84 days ! Please tell me what should I do in these days
  5. [FM18] Mozambique (Division 2) By Timo Follow me https://twitter.com/FmTimo Since 1976, FMF has organized the country's top division, the Campeonato Moçambicano de Futebol, better known as Moçambola. Record champions are each with nine titles founded in 1924 Clube Ferroviário de Maputo and existing since 1955 CD Costa do Sol. In 2014, for the fourth time in five years, the league Muçulmana became national champion. The moçambola's three last-placed clubs are relegated to the second division, the single-track Segunda Divisão with 21 clubs. Under this second league follow the eleven supreme leagues of the football associations of the eleven Mozambican provinces. The national trophy of the FMF, the Taça de Moçambique, has been played since 1978. The first winner was CD Maxaquene, who won the cup nine times (as of December 2014). However, the CD Costa do Sol is also in the cup competition record champion, with 11 won trophies. In 2013 and 2014, the Clube Ferroviário da Beira won the trophy. Mozambique clubs have often played in the CAF Champions League and the African Cup Winners' Cup. So far, however, none of the clubs could win a title there (as of January 2015) DIVISIONS Moçambola (Division 1) 2ª Divisão (Division 2) 32 clubs / 3 groups CUPS Taça de Moçambique (National Cup) Supertaça de Moçambique (Supercup) DOWNLOAD https://fmslife.fr/t/update-mozambique-d2/2895
  6. [FM18] Angola (Division 2) By Timo Follow me https://twitter.com/FmTimo Football is the most popular sport in Angola, followed by basketball. The national team qualified for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany and many Angolan footballers play internationally, particularly in Portugal and France. The top national league is the Girabola. The country was a Portuguese colony since the late 15th century. And so it was the Portuguese who popularized football here. Football in Angola is still shaped by its Portuguese origins and relationships, for example through a number of affiliates of the Portuguese clubs Benfica Lisbon and Sporting Lisbon. Also, many Angolan footballers play internationally, especially in Portugal, but also in France, but mostly in lower leagues.

  7. Need of a lot of fixes for national teams competitions, 1) WORLD CUP FINAL TABLE ERROR World Cup final table (since round of 16) this is a programmation error. In the image, this is the correct table, with the red line, the wrong inversed schedule on the game to fix. This error make the game unrealistic infortunately. 2) HOST COUNTRY FOR SOME NATIONAL TEAM COMPS We want to look host country for Oceanian Cup, Copa America, Asian Nations Cup, North American GoldCup, and for the Nations League final 4 (semi finals and finals schedule) in the competition menu, like it's already done for World Cup for example (3th screenshot) 3) INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS HOST COUNTRIES ON THE GROUP A ! EURO Championship, Africa Nations Cup, Copa America, North American GoldCup: host country must be ON THE GROUP A ! For a more realistic gameplay. I don't have screenshot, but Cameroon hosts African Nations Cup 2019 and the draw can put them in a random group (can be the C, the B or other). But ecause they are host country they always must be on the group A for the 2019 edition (and Guinea always on the A for the 2023 edition) and not another group like is now posible actualy on the game. The EURO Championship have the same problem with host countries. Only World Cup have the correct and realistic group A schedule for that (I talked about this on the 1st point but the problem of World Cup is the final table schedule who is not realistic). The North American GoldCup, Copa America, Asian Nations Cup have the same problem too but in worst because they dont have host country. 4) PROBLEM WITH AFRICAN NATIONS CUP 2019 MODULO 4 (---> 2023, 2027, 2031 ETC...) WINNER CAN'T PLAY CONFEDERATIONS CUP 2 YEARS LATER Please fix too, African team for Confederations Cup must be the African Cup winner and not a substitute team. I suggest African Nations Cup must start on the middle of July and end on the middle of August for not interact with Confederations Cup. Because like you can watch on this 2 screenshoots, Algeria won African Cup of Nations 2019 but Cape-Verde is qualificated for substitute Algeria because Algeria plays African Cup of Nations 2021 and cannot play Confederations Cup in the same time. 5) Please fix Confederations Cup 2021, must be in the same country of the World Cup 2022 I dont have screenshot but in my database, Confederations Cup 2021 was in Qatar and World Cup 2022 in Australia. I would be more realistic if Australia hosts Confederations Cup 2021 and World Cup 2022. 6) RUSSIA AND UKRAINE UEFA POLICY Ukraine and Russia cant be on the same group because of political problems (UEFA Policy) 7) EURO 2024: WILL BE HOSTED BY GERMANY OR TURKEY CANDIDATE COUNTRY (OFFICIALY CONFIRMED BY UEFA) The EURO 2024 will take place in Germany or Turkey candidate country (officialy confirmed by UEFA who will choose host country in September 2018) but on the game we have Spain host country possible. It's not realistic and it must be fix. Thanks for reading ! If you have any other suggestions you can post it in commentaries.
  8. Ok yes i admit the journeyman save is rather over done, however given the facts that A i'm board and B i've never done one before i though, "why not give it a go". So what sets mine apart from the norm? Well admittedly not a whole lot but the fact that i have all levels of competition from 35 different nations in 5 different continents, so it's gone global and i am not restricted to just Europe. yeah you are right that is alot of leagues.... and who is this man that will bring himself inter continental glory? here he is, a not too long out of school 20 year old *cough* should of been 18 *cough* with no badges or prior experience of the pro life ready to set sail on this lifelong journey. As you see i haven't invested in any coaching attributes and flung it all over to mental and pouring the few points i had in adaptability, you don't expect me to learn Hebrew or Arabic on 1 do you? Apart from that not a whole lot unusual about me/him. yes i am a Millwall supporter and yes i've herd all them jokes before. There where less jobs than expected available to me few in Asia, few in Europe and that was really about it, oh almost forgot 1 Brazilian and Columbian job but they told me in the interview my job was easy and involved putting packages in dark places so i thought best not. however there where a number of jobs that stood out to me including South Korean teams Daegu and Incheon both of whom turned my down after interviews than there was a lot of Irish side offering me interviews but i didn't go because i feel i wanted to start away from Europe. then i realized most Asian nations if not all where already a quarter to half way through there seasons at our start which was the English one. several Chinese sides rejected me before this happened... second tier Indonesian side Persatu Tuban, sounds more like head wear than a team but hey ho off to there i go. so off to Indonesia on £110 a week a comfy salary for this part of the world. here's the league table string of recent results we inherited that lead us to be top of our group and knocked out of the national cup. also on the note of us coming here think i should talk about how this league works plus any weird rules, ok here goes. So the 2nd tier is separated into 4 groups the top 2 of each go to a second pair of groups which the top 2 of each get promoted and finally 1st in each fight for overall first and 2nd in each fight for 3rd place. as for rules nothing other than Indonesian only players. doesnt look like a whole lot of building we got to do if this is the results we got, however the squad could potentially be a financial problem. what i meant by the above was the amount of players we have that will probably not get game time because i'm not a huge squad rotator and i like smaller squads. and here's the maiden tactic a counter 4-4-2. ok bad news unfortunately there are gonna be no games this update and its time to round this one off but i will come back after every in game month to evaluate it so next update will be up until the last game of august. and last but not least here's the games i will be doing for next update. but anyways guys thank you so much for reading this and stay tuned for more......
  9. Zanzibar was officially accepted into the CAF in March 2017 and can take part in the African Cup of Nations (among other competitions). Just wanted to share that because I think it's pretty cool. They might not be a member of FIFA yet but hopefully they will be soon!
  10. Afternoon all. I have decided to bring over my FM17 career save that I have been live tweeting about. If you don't know what the idea of the save is then here is a description of the challenge! The Challenge The plan for my FM17 save is to travel the world taking over interesting clubs, e.g Fallen Giants, Clubs I follow, Clubs with interesting histories, etc. For this I have a list of teams that fit into this category. My manager will be starting Unemployed with Sunday League Reputation and No Coaching badges. I will start by loading a few nations in Asia and Africa then (possibly) sim around 6 months to make sure that there are different jobs available to what pops up at the beginning of the game. It will then be a job hunt until a club comes in and takes a chance on me. From there who knows what will happen but I have a few aims and objectives that I want to achieve in the game. Alongside having my list of teams I want to manage the main aim will be to complete my self-titled challenge called "Club and Country Hexagon Challenge" Club You have to win the 5 Continental Champions Leagues, these are: European Champions League Copa Libertadores North American Champions League Asian Champions League African Champions League Alongside this you have to win the Club World Championships Country You have to win the 5 international tournaments, these are: Copa America European Championships African Nations Cup Asian Cup North America Gold Cup Alongside this you have to win the World Cup If I manage this is will be some kind of minor miracle but hopefully this will keep me occupied for the whole of FM17! I want to try and complete this without taking over the usual bigger clubs but we will see how it goes, obviously the first club will be pretty rubbish but as I progress, gain badges and reputation the clubs will get larger but I don't want to take over the usual Man United, Real Madrid, etc. Aas you may notice from the title is called FMREGEN: FULLCIRCLE 2, why the 2 I hear you ask? Well this is my 2nd attempt after my 1st one had a bug where when I added new nations to the game no staff or players loaded! It was an unrepairable bug which meant I had to start again. It was gutting but it made me make a few changes. The main change I made was to add all Nations I wanted to play in at the very start of the game to stop the issue that I had before So here are the nations I am going to use: Quite a few but a nice mix of bigger and smaller Nations over the five continents available. The aim is the same as previous, win all five continental champions leagues + the club world championship and also the five international tournaments + the world cup. Let's hope this save doesn't screw up or I think I'll be jumping off a very tall building!! The First Job As before I have started my manager off with no badges, Sunday League Reputation and unemployed so now it's job hunt time! And it did take quite a while to get a job interview that interested me, I wanted to leave continents like Europe and the Americas until later on in the save so was specifically waiting for a job in Asia or Africa. Interviews came and went and then eventually someone took a punt on me! Amazulu of the South African First Division had taken me on and to be honest this was exactly the job I wanted, not only for the size of club but also the continent I felt is best to start in. We are currently mid-season and in 14th place out of 16 teams which is poor for a team predicted to end 3rd. They did get relegated from the Premiership in 2015 and I'm pretty confident with the squad I have we can get on a good run and be challenging for at least a playoff spot, which is top 3. So my journey starts again! Let's see how well I can do this time. As I mentioned before I have been live tweeting this save without doing a blog on it but that is going to change, I will still be doing tweets but only every month(ish) and will be concentrating on the blogging side of it. I am already 4 seasons into the save so the next post which will be up in the next few days will be a broad overview of my first 4 seasons in charge. After that I will do updates either once or twice a season depending on if there is enough to say and/or I get enough time. That's all from me for now, I hope you enjoyed the intro and will follow along. This is the first time I've posted on the SI Forum Career Section so if you have any tips or feedback for me then please leave a comment
