PaulHartman71 posted a topic in FM Career UpdatesThis save will follow the managerial career of Matt Hart as he bids to help launch China into a global superpower in football, with the long term aim being to lead China to a World Cup win and have world class Chinese players turning out for Real Madrid, Barca and co. Matt's grandfather, Paul Hart, was the subject of my FM15 Alphabet Career, which can be found here and for some reason has Lenny and Carl from The Simpsons as a cover photo? : Matt's father, Adam Hart, was the subject of my FM17 career, where I started at the 9th tier and had to accept every job offer I ever got. That can be found here, with for some reason, a prison as the cover photo:
Hi guys, For example I have a football player who is 32 years old and very famous, known by all the world, by the way still playing in his national team. But his price is 2 m.euro because he is old. Ok I understand that but China and India are trying to bring Famous world players and they pay astronomical values for this players. And this old players are mostly going to play there because of money. This system should come to FM also only for famous players. Right now I can't sell this players to any team.
Doing The Locomotive: Getting China On Track Ok here I am with another youth challenge, but rather than starting in a minnow nation such as San Marino I have decided to give China a go. Why China? They have got 1.35 billion people yet they have never really impacted on an international scale. There are some extremely wealthy clubs and there are some big names knocking about, so it will also be interesting to see what happens in the nation long term. My aim is to turn them into the greatest footballing nation using the youth academy of a domestic team. I started in February 2016, holidayed a year then took on one of the promoted sides. The team I have chosen for this is Tianjin Locomotive. Locomotive were formed in 1950 and were one of the founders of the Chinese football league. The team have a decent starting point for a youth challenge with reasonable facilities all round. Despite the clubs history, they are a small club and have attendances of just a few hundred. This will make it difficult to compete with the Sugar Daddy's. The Manager - Li Weifeng I have decided to use an alias, just to make things a little more interesting. I am using Li Weifeng, former national team captain with over 100 caps, who started out his career with Locomotive's youth team. He retired in 2015 after a career mostly in China, but also with Everton (2 appearances) and Suwon Bluewings in South Korea. The Squad We have just 14 players to start with and unless I cannot field an 11, I will not be using the greyed out players. Let's hope we don't have an injury crisis! I don't have any staff members to judge the team yet, but it is lacking quality as well as the obvious lack of depth. I just about have the players to play my favoured 4-4-2 DM / 4-4-1-1 DM formation. Li Jianyu is a prospect to get excited about and is one of the reasons I chose to start with Locomotive. Li Wenxin is the standout player out of the rest of the squad. He will be our captain and stalwart in defensive midfield. We are not expected to stand a chance in this league....it could be a very tough first season! Roll on youth intake day.
