  1. Welcome to my third (i think) and (hopefully) last thread in this part of forum for this year's edition. As you can see, i will be managing Enfield Town FC as part of dafuge challenge. I've been reloading for quite a while, hoping to get them. Almost gave up, when they finally appeared. Or else this would be a thread about Leatherhead. So why them? For no reason other than that beautiful and aesthetically pleasing badge. Kits aren't bad too either (bar third one, way too Barcelona-esque) And they're basically an empty slate. Perfect club for building up. If i'm not wrong, they're first fan owned club in England. That's cool too. Few of those players that i like won't sign new contracts. They're all like "we're too good for this level". So why did you play for us last year, you League 1 quality dumba**es?! In the black right now but i have a cheeky feeling that it won't last for long. And for the end, league table. Bloody Billericay should walk this league. They're just too good. Havant is decent side too. Bath and Maidenhead should be near the top. As for us, it all depend on our transfer window. I can see us be clear of relegation fight but we have to resign some of these arrogant a******s. That's it as of this moment. Nothing else to add. And now, my climb begins.
  2. The Graham Taylor Career Journey Hello and welcome, as I try to emulate the managerial career and footballing philosophy of the former England Manager, Graham Taylor. Taylor at the age of twenty-eight, became the youngest manager ever to be appointed by a club in the Football League, when he took over Lincoln City halfway through the 72/73 season, saved them from relegation, whilst finishing a credible tenth in the old Fourth Division. The previous summer, at twenty-seven, he became the youngest man to become a qualified FA coach, after his own professional football career in the Fourth Division had been cut short prematurely by a hip injury. Graham Taylor had a very clear vision for how his teams should play. It should be a direct, fast paced style of play combined with the high pressing and counter pressing game, combined with lots of shots on the opposition's goal. His vision worked and by the 1975/76 season he had led Lincoln City to the title, setting records along the way for games won (32) and goals scored (111) in a single season. He spent the following season in the Third Division with Lincoln City, finishing 9th, before he got a call from Watford's chairman Elton John offering him to drop down a division and take over the club. After accepting the position, Taylor propelled Watford up the table with three promotions in four seasons and getting them to a F.A cup final at Wembley. He also went on to manage Aston Villa, leading them to second place in the 1st Division, before taking the England job, which ended in failure to qualify for the 94 World Cup in the U.S. So for this save I’ll start unemployed with a National A coaching badge, and a past playing experience of regional level professional footballer. After reading his self-penned autobiography, I also intend to use the high intensity tactics he used throughout his career, and see where it takes me. I also want to get a job in League Two, since this was the division where he started his managerial career. The aim of the save is to get my first team promoted and secured in League One within four seasons. Then try start all over again with a League Two side, achieving three promotions in four seasons with them, and if I can, getting them to a cup final along the way. Another aim is to be offered the England job. In the next post I'll update you on whatever League Two club is willing to hire an inexperienced 29 year old Taylor.
  3. Overview: This file redefines the English league structure into regional divisions through all the levels, including the top flight. The structure is as follows: Teams can move laterally to make up numbers in the divisions but can never move between the two separate halves of the structure. There are a total of 644 teams in the pyramid, with 262 in the North, and 382 in the South. Premier Leagues: In each of these leagues, each of the 12 teams plays all the others twice each (home and away) for 22 games. After this the leagues split. The top 4 teams in each league create an 8 team championship playoff league, which they keep their existing points going in to. In this mini-league they then play each team home and away to determine a final placing of these top 8 teams. The bottom 8 teams in each league also create their own mini-leagues, playing each other home and away again in order to decide the three teams which are relegated from each half. Again, points from the first stage carry over in to the second half of the season. Much like the real life Scottish premiership, teams from the relegation group cannot overtake teams in the championship playoff in the final standings, even though they might end up on more points from playing the weaker opposition. Below are screenshots from a simulated season showing this all in action. Continental qualification is untouched and goes to the top 7 teams in the championship playoff Championships: Unlike the two premier leagues, the championships operate independently of one another, as do the two structures on all the remaining levels of the pyramid. The Northern and Southern Championships both contain 20 teams, with 3 teams getting promoted (two automatically and one from a 4 team playoff) to the relevant premier league and 4 teams getting relegated (all automatic) to the relevant conference. Conferences: The final fully linear level of each half of the pyramid are the Northern and Southern Conferences. Each of these contains 24 teams. In each half 4 teams gain promotion (3 automatically, one from a 4 team playoff) to the relevant championship. In the Northern Conference, 3 teams are relegated down to the Northern Regional Premier Leagues (North-West Premier League, North-East Premier League, Midlands League 1) and in the Southern Conference, 4 teams are relegated down to the Southern Regional Premier Leagues (Southern League and Central Premier League). Lower Divisions: The remaining divisions, going down to an eight tier are shown above and get increasingly more regional as you go down the levels, down to the Sussex & Wessex County Championship and the Heart of England Championship on the 8th tier of the pyramid. As in the real life structure, it is possible for any team anywhere in the pyramid to get increasingly promoted up to the top flight. A selection of divisions are shown below. Cups: There are a variety of cups throughout the league structures, some national and some regional. National Cups: FA Cup: Contains teams from tiers 1-5 Northern/Southern League Cup: Contains the teams tiers 1-3 in the relevant half FA Community Shield: Between the winner of the Premier League and the FA Cup FA Regional Shield: Contains teams from tiers 4-6 Regional Cups: East Anglian Cup: Contested by teams in the Anglian Premier Division, North Anglian League and South Anglian League. Final played at Carrow Road. Sussex & Wessex Challenge Trophy: Contested by teams in the Sussex and Wessex County Premiership and Championship. Semi-finals and Final played at the Amex Stadium. Southern League Cup: Contested by teams in the Southern League, Southern League West, Southern League East Divisions 1 & 2, Heart of England League and the Heart of England Championship. Final played at Wembley. Central League Cup: Contested by teams in the Central Premier League, Central League East, Central League London and the Greater London County League (best 6 teams only). Final played at Wembley. Midlands Shield: Contested by teams in the Midlands Leagues 1 & 2, the West Midlands League and the East Midlands Premiership and Championship. Final played at Villa Park. North-Western Cup: Contested by teams in the North-Western Premiership and Championship. Final played at Old Trafford. North-Eastern Cup: Contested by teams in the North-Eastern Premiership and Championship, and the Premiership of Yorkshire. Final played at the Stadium of Light. Greater London Cup: Contested by teams in the Central League London and the Greater London County League. Final played at the Emirates Stadium. Youth Setup: All teams have an U23 and an U18 team, although only the teams in the top few tiers have their youth teams play in youth leagues. This is to be added later, however it still allows youth development of players now. Known Issues: The winner of the FA Cup does not yet get qualification to the UEFA Cup Makes Scotland an unplayable nation Download: v1.0 - Regional English Leagues v1.fmf This is my first major database edit so any feedback is greatly appreciated.
  4. So this began out as me looking to create a 22 Tier database, but it was brought to my attention that one was already in the making, therefore I am looking to create the logos for the teams, competitions and possibly also the cities and stadiums if possible that will accompany this database created by @Dan BHTFC (Link to his page) Make sure you check out his content as it has been high quality for many seasons now!

  6. Tuesday 6th July 2010 A sleepy town on the Thames is where fate has placed me for this latest attempt at cracking the big time world of football with a start from the bottom. In this case, the bottom is the ninth level of English football, as the game is asked to randomly select me an English lower league club, and hands me Chertsey Town of the Combined Counties League, Premier Division. Established in 1890, they are a club that have achieved, well nothing actually. They won the Surrey Junior Cup before the turn of that century, but then took over fifty years to actually become a Senior club and join the Surrey Senior League, and then until 1960 to win the Title. They won it twice more in the next three years, adding three League Cup triumphs to it as well before turning professional. That lasted exactly three years, costs were too high for a club of this size, and they reverted back to a lower level of football. In recent years, with several League reorganisations, Town earned promotion twice, only to find the higher level too competitive for them. Now I'm joining a club that is expected to challenge for a promotion. There is no real signal that it's on the cards from what I can see, the club want to spend £575 on wages, already spending all but £8 of that, and worse still, spending £400 of it on just one player. I'm not sure that's a sustainable situation. The club has a bank balance of £8,500 right now. With no backroom staff at the club, the first job is to try and bring in some help, while also evaluating what kind of level of player we have, and what we need to make immediate improvements. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Welcome. Football Manager'11, twenty four nations, with only lower level League's from England added to the traditional FM preset options. No other tinkering has taken place, even unfaking, as I forgot to do it, so don't slap too much of your hard earned cash on the Germans winning the Euro's or World Cup during this one! In the spirit of a proper lower league save, I won't sign staff unless they apply for the job, or are recommended by a current staff member or player. As for on the park, players need to be scouted, playing in trials that I or my staff are invited to or recommended before I can attempt to sign them. Should keep things interesting. Enjoy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------
  7. I am the Manager of Southampton & England U21's. The national reports created are showing the ability as unknown even though they have 100% knowledge. I have uploaded the save file: Cory McRoberts - Southampton - England U21s
  8. I’d been looking forward to my retirement. After twenty years as a professional footballer, I was more than ready to ride off into the sunset and run a pub in the age-old tradition of ex-players. As it happened, my retirement lasted all of two weeks before I was approached with an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down: the chance to go home. It still felt strange referring to Gibraltar as “home.” Although I was born here and, in the latter stages of my career, had made twenty-eight appearances for the national side, I had grown up in England. As a navy brat, it was mere luck that led to my being born on the Rock. My father was stationed here and my mother – ever the loyal wife – had followed him during his posting. We moved to Portsmouth when I was three, and nobody ever thought that I would return. I wouldn’t if it hadn’t been for football. I had barely come around from the post-retirement party hangover when the news that would change my plans broke: Hemel Hempstead Town had hit financial troubles. It popped up in the crawl bar on Sky Sports News and, for whatever reason, was the only thing on the screen my eyes could focus on. It was entirely useless information, but it stuck with me longer than it should have. I threw back a couple of painkillers and go back to bed for round two with whatever her name was. A couple of days later – I think – I was rudely awoken by the sound of my phone ringing. She was gone. I couldn’t remember her name. Probably didn’t ask for it – I rarely did. Or needed to. “What?” I grunted into the phone, a mixture of confusion, anger, and feeling like I’d been hit by a car. “Matty,” after a moment of processing, I figured out that it was my agent, Rick, “I’ve got an offer for you.” “I retired, remember? We had a talk, put out a press release, threw a party… Pretty sure you were there, mate.” “I was. They’re not asking you to play. They want you to manage.” “Who?” “Inter.” “Milan?” My mind instantly filled with plans of chasing models and gorging myself into retirement shape on the local cuisine. “Not quite.” A few days later, I was sitting in a fancy restaurant waiting to be interviewed. I don’t know how they even talked me into that, under the circumstances. The news had been bigger than I expected; the demise of Hemel had led to a takeover by a group of ambitious businessmen. In the space of a week – allegedly – deals had been done and the club now known as “Franchise 2” by a large segment of football fans was joining the Vanarama South: Inter Gibraltar were the newest members of the English footballing pyramid. The tiny footballing nation – the place where I was born – now had a representative in the English game. And here I was – Matty Walker, Gibraltar’s favourite footballing son – waiting to be interviewed to lead the project.
  9. Welcome to the third installment of Kafra - the create your own club, youth only save that is based in England! After the great success I had with Kafra in the first installment (FM 16) of this save, the second version (FM17) faltered as I was bogged down with real life. The hope here is that the third version will fall more in line with the original than the sequel - I am already a season in, and it has been a fantastic start. So again, welcome to the third installment of the Kafra franchise!
  10. Welcome, welcome. After breaking my promise of not deleting my last career, I decided that it would not be worth it to constantly make different topics only to remove them afterwards. This here will be a log of all careers I do on FM18, before I might update to FM19. So, what I did first was be inspired by @ashton321's idea of starting in a predetermined country at a predetermined club, decided by randomness. Of course others had done it before but it sounded more appealing this time around than it did before. No Megapack or anything, I love it's expansiveness but some leagues aren't that great and the boards can be iffy to work with. I ended up here, in the second league of Colombia, at none other than Orsomarso Sportivo Clube. Being founded only 6 years ago and having their debut in the Torneo Águila in 2016, we have a relatively clean sheet to work with. We've been met with the task to finish mid-table, my players want me to reach top half and I hope to be better than in our debut season. To accomondate, i've enabled all South American leagues, which totals to about 34000 players in a large database. The box 'add players to playable teams' remains unticked because I feel it's unneeded in the default database. Every other league is enabled as view-only as per the new standard. We have a silly amount of solid strikers but a considerable lack of defenders. To compensate, we've loaned in Julián Guerrero from Fortaleza and Jesús Varona from América de Cali. Speaking of América de Cali, they are our opponents for the first match of the Copa Águila, the Champions League-like tournament for all clubs of the Colombian First and Second Division. We face another Liga team in Cortuluá and finally perennial Torneo strugglers Atlético. I think 3rd should be a realistic aim. Since i've only decided on making an update thread on this late on, here are the friendly results. And boy, we were brilliant! After a mediocre start against Tolima Real everyone else got smacked. The two latter matches were especially noteworthy. Against River Plate, Walther Valencia managed to score a hat-trick on his own birthday! Despite it being lower league opposition I think it's still a nice present. Against Deportivo Wembley... ...an image can do the talking. You better brace yourself, Colombia. We're coming. One question: If you enable, then disable a league that was originally view-only, does it revert to it or become disabled in it's entirety?
  11. Currently managing Southampton & England U21. When I go into my national pool, the ability column is empty for most players, assuming this is because it is taking the club scouting reports not national. They have all been scouted by my national pool but they don't show up unless I go into the player profile. This is very frustrating when I am trying to pick my team, I just let the England assistant do it (I have no U21 Assistant as it is very hard to sign someone for the job). I cannot attach the game file as it is too large. As from the Screenshot all the abilities are Unknown, then I go into a players profile and go in to the national report section and its there. How do I get the national reports to show up consistently in National Pool.
  12. Dear SEGA, in many videos I've seen non-league mods in the game. So, why not make those 7th and 8th tier teams in England playable? Looking forward to hearing from you in the very near future, Ian Thompson
  13. Alright, here we go again. Bad puns aside... Didn't really get into Foggia save, which is a shame, as i really like them. Italy didn't really appeal to me this year. But, as i found out in a online save with my friend, England still do it for me. So, separately from that, i'll be starting another one, starting from the bottom, Vanarama North/South. It'll be a journeyman save, as i'll be jumping ships, trying to get to the top of the food chain in English football. And since i started this thread, that mean that i'm two or more seasons in. Really didn't want to start another one if i wasn't sucked in the save. I've been saving screenshots so it's just a matter of sorting them through and posting in appropriate order.
  14. Currently doing a save with Young Boys in Switzerland. Anyone got any recommendations for young English (cheap) players to buy for my upcoming transfer window in jan/end of season? Maybe hidden championship gems?
  15. Barnsley FC "Welcome t' Tarn" Life has been a challenging task for Barnsley fans, over the last 10 years having suffered two relegations and a promotion in the space of just 4 years. Barnsley haven't hit the heights of the Premier League since the 98/99 season and have spent more time seasons than any other in the second tier of English football 77 years to be precise and that is were I hope to return the club at the first time of asking. The club has undergone a number of “life cycles” over the last few years, resulting in multiple changes to how it does its business from the dark days of signing past it journeymen like Jonathan Greening, Emmanuel Frimpong and the Prince of Egypt Mido, to being one of the first sides to invest in young home grown talents like Alfie Mawson and Conor Hourihane and sell them on for profit a concept very similar to that of “Moneyball”. but now a change has arisen under the new stewardship of Gauthier Ganaye. Under the new stewardship of Gauthier Ganaye headed by owners Chien Lee and Paul Conway who took over from the late Patrick Cryne. Lee is also the co-owner of Nice Football Club with a similar recruitment strategy as ourselves, in developing young players to be sold for a profit, since the takeover in December 2017 there has certainly been a change in recruitment with Head Coach Daniel Stendel at the forefront of the change on and of the pitch. After a successful 2016/17 season, where Barnsley were comfortably stationed above the drop zone in 14th position the Sky Bet Championship, exceeding all expectations. Since then things have taken a dramatic turn for the worse for the Reds with a large influx of new players joining in the summer of 2017. 13 in total including; Cameron McGeehan from Luton, Liam Lindsay from Partick Thistle, Ethan Pinnock, Mamadou Thiam, Brad Potts, Matty Pearson, Stevie Mallan, Jason McCarthy, Lloyd Isgrove, Zeki Fryers, Dimitri Cavare -and breath-, I’m sure you can see the problem already. This without naming several loanees. And to manage this hapless bunch was the equally useless Paul Heckingbottom (still a divisive issue), which I won’t get in to. The 2017/18 was definitely a season to forget for Barnsley fans ending with relegation on the final day of the season at Derby under another useless manager, Mourinho’s cone man Jose Morais -If only we’d BELIEVED a bit more- sorry only Barnsley fans will get that reference. I think it was fairly obvious the players didn’t enjoy playing for the last two managers and s neither did the fans something that couldn’t be further from the truth under Daniel Stendel. There were little positives to take out from last season two of them being the emergence of Oli McBurnie and Harvey Barnes both of which are now crucial parts of top Championship teams, which gives me real hope that the club still has a great eye for a player, if only lacking the financial clout to compete for the players we would really like to. Maybe that will change under the immensely rich new owners -who knows-. The summer of 2018 took a decisively different turn to the previous, with very few arrivals coupled with minimal departures means we enter the 2018/19 season with largely the same squad as last season. The incomings being Kenny Dougall from Sparta Rotterdam for roughly £350,000 a bargain price on evidence so far. Mike Bähre (Loan to buy) from Hannover, Jordan Williams from Huddersfield, Cauley Woodrow (Loan to be confirmed as permanent in January) and Callum Styles from Bury (Loaned back to Bury until January ). With Stevie Mallan heading to Hibernian, Tom Bradshaw to Millwall (Loan to be confirmed as permanent in January) and the illusive Christoph Knasmullner to Rapid Wien who I never actually saw play for the club in his brief spell in English football. And my job is to try and return us to the Championship at the first time of asking.
  16. NEED SOME HELP Hey people, I'm trying to create a club based in Cardiff and place them in the English lower leagues but the game wont let me choose Cardiff as the location of the club. I was wondering if anyone knew how i could overcome this issue?
  17. Had some hopes for VAR in England for old saves, however in 19.1.5: "...also adding in VAR as recently announced for the English top flight starting from the 19/20 season - however this addition requires users to start a new game." This was pretty much expected, but can we please get VAR for long saves we already started? Say, starting from next season? Yep, I know it's some extra (15 min) work, but it'll show you value loyal FM players.
  18. See the "Most Overall Goals" & "Most League Goals" This seems like a bug, help please!
  19. I have had a long held desire to have a really good crack at one of the many Challenges that exist in these Forums. The challenge section of the forum is a very busy page however, and the constant need to upload pics is a bit over the top for my liking. So I have decided to bring a challenge to our little section of the boards. Where necessary, I'll post links to pics instead of filling the page with screenshots as per house rules. This is my first ever save on the latest version of Football Manager 2018, so it is also serving as a test, and I have elected to have a shot at the FM18 Youth Academy Challenge. As per the rules, I have loaded England only, with playable Leagues down to Level 11. I have chosen that tier as it is the lowest level where clubs are almost entirely semi-professional. This challenge will be difficult enough already, trying it with an amateur club would make it virtually impossible. In Game Editor use has been disabled, and Key Staff will not be added. As per the challenge guide, I have got the clubs from Tiers 12-14 running as unplayable leagues, this will ensure that these teams will have some players when/if they are promoted. The idea is to run a club without ever buying a player, so you will rely entirely on the players at the club, and the youngsters that arrive in the Youth Intakes. I have copied and pasted the general rules below from the challenge thread..... -------------------------- Steps When Getting Started • Add yourself as an unemployed manager. Call him holiday man if you want. • Go on holiday until the reset date of your nation or the day before if you’re planning on reloading. • Retire the manager • Add a new manager with your chosen nationality and the lowest possible reputation and qualifications • Choose the newly promoted club of your choice Rules for the Challenge • No loans or transfers in are allowed but you can sell and loan players out. • If you are sacked, sorry, you have to start again. • No save game editors are allowed. Only cosmetic database edits are allowed. (Team/competition names/logos) • No international management until completion of challenge. • Signing backroom staff is allowed. Signing players on trial or signing grey players isn't allowed. --------------------------- So after being on holiday for the 2017/18 season (I had a lovely time, thank you so much for the asking, though the hotel has seen better days), I retired my dummy manager (I know what you're thinking, don't go there), and brought in my normal manager profile. With the lowest reputation and no qualifications. I set about compiling a list of the clubs promoted into Level 11, of which there were 45. I then started to look into the clubs, and try to make my decision which one was for me. <Manager Profile> It became immediately clear that no matter who I chose, the first season was going to be a struggle, and the aim will simply be to stay up, and not get sacked. That's because the clubs all bring nothing more than a skeleton squad with them into Level 11. They all have one thing in common too, they don't have any strikers. They also have fairly poor training and youth facilities, and in the case of my chosen club, minimal junior coaching and limited youth recruitment. Yikes! <The Announcement> As you can see from that linked photo, the club I have chosen to lead is Poole Borough, a fairly new club at less than 20 years old, and just promoted from the Dorset Second Division into the County Premier League. <The Squad> And from that photo, you can see my skeleton squad, which includes no recognised striker, no recognised team leaders, and no reinforcements on the way until the next Youth Intake late in the season. Our poor facilities mean that even when that happens, we are not likely to be unearthing any world beaters. We are going to be dependent on a solid system and making ourselves very difficult to beat if we are to achieve the predicted 12th place finish in the 382nd most reputable League in European football. Every one of our players is currently on an amateur contract, and the Board will not currently allow us to discuss part time deals right now. That could be problematic should they start to attract the attentions of other clubs, We certainly cannot afford to lose any players in season one. The Transfer Budget is zero, which is fine in these circumstances. The weekly Wage Budget is £725 a week, of which we are currently spending nothing, and are unlikely to be by the look of it. We have a Scouting Budget of £10,800 for the season. Apart from checking up on future opponents, that money is useless to us, not least as we don't have any Scouts employed. In fact, we don't have anyone employed apart from me. We'll call that job number one then.
  20. I have actually never done a long-term save in England, moving through the leagues... it's about time. the club I chose is Basingstoke Town, playing in the "Evo-Stik League South Premier Division", in the seventh tier. The only reason I chose them since I don't know anything about them is that they are nicknamed "The Dragons". Fire and Blood! Since we all know the crazy money in England, I'm going to limit myself in a pretty big way - I don't plan to pay any transfer fees throughout the save. I can get new players from youth intakes, loans (without fees) and free transfers. I used the DB with the 22 levels but only loaded the top 9, and might be deleting the bottom ones at some point, depending on how fast the game runs. As far as the DB is concerned I've not done much, just a large DB with all international players. Just the 2.2M debt then. No big deal. The squad at the start - I did click add players to playable teams so there have been some regens added. Ben here is the best player at the club, I don't mind him at all. Enjoy.
  21. Using the real world cup 2018 data file I decided to have a go at many games as as many different nations at the world cup as possible. I’ll keep my efforts for all the different nations in this one thread rather than start a new one for each time I start a new game as another nations. I’m going to try and keep the nations real squads though if we have an injury before the tournament starts I’ll have to call another player up obviously and if that nations squad isn’t whittled down to 23 by the time I come to play them I’ll have to do that myself. First up is England. As you can see we have entered a dystopian reality where Wilfred Bony had a good season. There was great shock at my England selection, though I'm susprised RLC shocked more than me selecting a goalie in Nick Pope who hadn't played a single game this season. First friendlies are against Ivory Coast and Morocco and I'm not optimistic.
  22. I'm managing Hartlepool United in it's 3rd year in the EPL after 4 straight promotions and currently defending EPL champs (all realistic things, i know). Since the beginning I've had my own wage structure in place to remain as profitable as possible. example: The 1st year in the EPL was £25k/w, 2nd year was £40k/w. I have quite a few incredibly good players who are now all asking for big wages or moves to superclubs. I'm talking £80-180k/w. The board will allow up to KP: £325k, FT: £185k. I'm spending a total of £687k/w out of £2.5m/w allowed. That's £20m/y less than when Pompy won the FA Cup. We know their story after. In comparison of stadium size(i built a new one and expanded it) in my save, currently in 2023/24, Bournemouth is paying their top player £120k/w with the majority from £50-95k. They've been mid table since the start. The question is: Does the AI know it's financial stability? In the past I've used the max amount of funds i could to make a winning squad and normally it results in mostly financial loss. But the game goes on. Perhaps the TV money is enough for the time being. I, however, am unsure of a 20k, maybe soon to be 27k seat stadium club paying those wages. Thanks for any input.
  23. Fairwarp FC You know you've hit rock bottom when your club logo looks like it's been coloured in by an eight year old. Fairwarp FC are a miniscule football club currently playing in the 22nd level of English football, in the Mid-Sussex League Division Nine. No one knows when they were founded, or by whom - although local gardener Paul Ward is currently the chairman. Representing the eponymous town, population in the hundreds, Fairwarp play at the town recreation ground and have no nickname. The club has raised £60 from season ticket sales thanks to Ward's family members. Taking over at Fairwarp will be legendary iconic fan favourite well-known respected unknown manager Kieran Davis, a native of nearby Haywards Heath. Upon arriving, Davis had one simple decree. Only Fairwarp lads could play for Fairwarp Football Club. And thus, Davis' journey began. Save Rules - only players from the youth intake born in Fairwarp can be signed - that's it Note: I cannot be relegated from this league. I will be using greyed out players as long as I need to. I don't care how many times I finish last. I've made myself unsackable.
  24. Hey, I have recently fired my fitness coach on English National Team and when I try to hire a person I want I'm not given an option to do so.
  25. Hi, does anyone know how to use the pre-game editor to remove this rule? I would like to be able to register my 25 players for the team no matter where they're from. Apparently it can be done in the section "Rules" in the editor, but I never used it. Thanks.
