Welcome to my first FM19 save. This was meant to be held off until the proper release but I seemingly can't wait so... Kicking off with '19 I'm going to revive a series of journeyman saves which was "Barcelona'ing through the lower leagues", that was my very first career here back then in the FM11(!) days, then I used that title again for the sequel in FM15. This seems to come and go in 4 years intervals so probably it's about time to try it again in '19. What's the challenge? Well quite simply it's to start from the bottom and end at the top, whilst always committed to playing some sort of good football. The original career came at the peak of Pep's Barça which I was a huge fan of, and that's a big inspiration as you probably can tell from the banner (uh, and LVG's horny football... I guess), but this is not meant to be a strict recreation of that playing style. For example in '19 we now have templates such as "tikitaka" but it doesn't have to be tikitaka, my first tactic that I'm going to use here didn't even begin from that template, it just has to be something that's generally entertaining, positive, hopefully with some sort of occasional nice passing triangles. Seems fair to go down the path of entertainment, after finishing FM18 "ruining football". I'm starting unemployed akin to unemployed, with the full ladder of the following leagues: Portugal (my manager's nationality, as I will again be playing under my alter-ego Henrique dos Santos which is meant to represent myself) Spain Holland Belgium Belarus Colombia Brazil Turkey + the top tier in England Italy Germany France Argentina + (something new inspired by @Makoto Nakamura's recent dealings): all other top tiers as view only! + all international players (all continents) + player in continental competitions of Europe and South America This seems like a ton so I hope it's not too slow. Goals for this save: - always try to play good football. Preferentially with my own tactics though I don't promise I won't try other people's tactics, I often do this when I get desperate (read, at some point in almost every career) - progress realistically until I reach the top level - manage in both the Americas and Europe, hopefully maybe this is the time I even venture back outside of these continents, been a hell of a long time. But not now at the beginning. - manage in Brazil for the first time - manage one of my favourite top clubs Barcelona, Ajax and obviously FC Porto. Hopefully all 3! - win back-to-back Champions Leagues (been missing this achievement ever since the very first FM11 career which was the only time I did it!) - have a newgen that I manage win the Ballon d'Or - win an international competition, hopefully with some sort of club+nation combo to develop a nation (Hungary/MTK was tons of fun in FM18)
