  1. I decided to start a career with my soulmate, Dinamo Bucharest. I will continue my career with The Journey and I will play in this career as well. Dinamo Bucharest is a traditional Romanian club founded on May 14, 1948 in League 1, where it has remained until now (unfortunately, this year they can be demoted or not licensed, ie they must raise 180 million euros by April 30). , but I think they will be raised because of the fans who started donating money to get the license). The stadium has 15,000 seats. Dinamo Bucharest is the second most titled club in Romania, with a UCL semifinal, in 1984, when it was eliminated by Liverpool. Dinamo had the best academy in Romania until 2009. Although it now has a good academy, it was overthrown by Viitorul Constanța. Dinamo also had a semi-final of the European Winners' Cup in 1990 immediately after the fall of the communist regime in Romania and many of the players went abroad. The biggest rival is Steaua Bucharest (now divided in two, a team from the first league, FCSB and a team from the fourth league, CSA Steaua). Besides Steaua, Dinamo also has rivalries with U Craiova (divided into two, a team in the third league and the one I consider to be the real team, FCU Craiova and a team from the first league, CSU Craiova, which has the support of the mayor's office local), with Rapid Bucharest (more of a local rival), with CFR Cluj (but this is due to the friendship of Dinamo fans with the eternal rival of CFR Clujj), with Sepsi OSK (which is more of an ethnic rivalry, because the club was founded by a Hungarian and is largely supported by Hungarians and Romanians do not support Hungarians and vice versa), with Csikszereda (same story as at Sepsi OSK, only this team is financially supported by the Hungarian government), with Politehnica Timișoara (It was also divided into two teams, ACS Poli Timișoara, which was transformed from an ACS Recaș team into ACS Poli Timișoara and ASU Politehnica Timișoara, which is supported by the fansthis rivalry from the 70s or 80s, when in one season Dinamo won all the matches and Politehnica Timișoara not even a match, and Dinamo lost to the team from Timișoara with the score of 2 -1, and this rivalry started to grow when Politehnica Timișoara fans became friends with Rapid fans). Other less important rivalries are with Progresul București and Sportul Studentesc, which are only local rivals. and Dinamo lost to the team from Timișoara with the score of 2-1, and this rivalry started to grow when the fans of Politehnica Timișoara became friends with the fans of Rapid). Other less important rivalries are with Progresul București and Sportul Studentesc, which are only local rivals. and Dinamo lost to the team from Timișoara with the score of 2-1, and this rivalry started to grow when the fans of Politehnica Timișoara became friends with the fans of Rapid). Other less important rivalries are with Progresul București and Sportul Studentesc, which are only local rivals. Like Steaua București, Dinamo is divided in two. A team from the first league that is the real Dinamo and with which I will make my career and a team from the fourth league called CS FC Dinamo founded by a former owner in 2015. Dinamo has 18 titles in the first league championships, 13 Romanian Cups, a League Cup (canceled immediately after Dinamo won the cup) and two Romanian Super Cups.
  2. Hey guys, so this will be my second time writing in the FMCU, after the adventures of Nemanja Vidic last edition. Getting bored of the English leagues, I have decided to embark on what will hopefully be a long-ish journeyman save around several of the European leagues. I always do enjoy playing as a recently retired ex-player, and this time is no different. I have gone with one of my favourite CM legends from back in the day (although for the life of me I can't remember which team I signed him for), Kennedy Bakircioglü Loaded up a bunch of the top European leagues and a couple of others where Kennedy played during his career to give us this final list - England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Greece. We started off unemployed and with zero coaching badges but as an ex-international. Luckily, didn't have to wait very long for the first job to come up, which will be described in the next post. Since I have already played through a season & a half, the first couple of updates would be a bit on the brief side, hopefully followed by longer & more detailed ones henceforth. The aim of this save, first & foremost, is to have a lot of fun. While doing so take in some new experiences, manage in countries I haven't done before. Broadly planning to spend anywhere between 2-4 seasons at a club before moving on, which is about as long as I can last anyway. Hopefully bring some success and silverware to each of the clubs we are at, in the process building Kennedy's career & reputation and moving up one step at a time. So here we go! Would love some feedback & comments along the way.
  3. Supat Rungratsamee vs. Daniel Braathen Goal: Win every domestic league in Europe (by any means necessary) Rules: Cannot manage any team that has won the domestic title historically Signings must come through the scouting centre Staff must come through job advertisements Can only move to the next country with a domestic league title secured Points System: Points are gained by any of the following Competition reputation value (from the editor) divided by final position Career earnings divided by 5200 (meaning 100k p/w would give 100 points in a season) Wins against each other are a bonus point Goals scored against each other are each worth one-tenth of a point too The battle begins in the lowest rated European league: Crimea Season Preview Adhering to the first rule of not taking over any team that has won the Crimean Premier league in the past, the following teams are eligible: Kafa & Okean Kerch are currently looking for a manager. Both men have applied for both vacancies. FC KAFA £230 p/w until Jun 2020 FC Kafa offered £100 p/w more personally & ~1k p/w in wages more than Okean Kearch The previous manager left for Ukraine after driving the team to promotion His exit sparked a mass exit, with players moving on to Georgia, Ukraine, Russia & other teams in the Crimean Premier League There's a lot of work to do to with no staff and only 8 players on the books! OKEAN KERCH £130 p/w until Jun 2020 Approached as a second choice as their finances weren't enough to secure their main target, Braathen The previous manager was sacked midway through last season due to poor results & the caretaker didn't do enough to get the main job full time O.K. have a full squad but were also effected by hefty departures to Russia after last seasons disappointment We have an extremely capable Assistant Manager, but no other staff and have to manage a tight wage budget Pre-Season Staff We managed to employ average coaching staff - our odds stack against us with who wants to join! I'm happy the scouts are better than average as we will be heavily reliant on these guys We have a physio which is the only factor ensuring we are not bottom of the league in that respect Signings 15 signings made, including 7 on deadline day! None out Tactic Friendlies A nil-nil against the u20's showed us exactly the dire situation we were in pre-signings We won the only other friendly we were able to organise 2-0 v much lower opposition Very little learned & match fitness some way off Staff We've brought in a new team of top (for Crimea) coaches & scouts The scouting team is the best in the country I don't know if we have a physio or just a med kit Signings 2 signings made as we look for cover 4 more leave the club against our will to move to "more ambitious" clubs Tactic Friendlies A 7-1 win against the U20's with Oliynyk getting 5 is hugely encouraging Another 3-1 win in the only other friendly organised Some way off match fitness Crimean Premier League Simple league set up: 8 teams 28 games 1 relegation spot A great start! We were strongest from the off and should've made this embarrassing for TSK-Tavria A poor result We started terribly & with a GK and two strikers as the only options to turn to on the bench, we had no way to effect the game A stalemate in a game we dominated Finishing is our problem from the first two games An even draw as we are reduced to only two subs as loanees aren't allowed to play their parent club We need some squad depth Okean Kerch vs FC Kafa
  4. FM19 All-European (Less England) Small Club to Big Club Challenge Introduction Welcome to a new season of the ‘Euro Nation’ Challenge, born out of the recent history of the highly successful Gundo’s Challenge and the Big Euro Nation Challenge that spawned out of it. After a steady start on FM18 hopefully with FM19 we will see a continuation of it's steady start and have another strong season. The premise of the challenge is simple, to start with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to winning the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, providing a great atmosphere and stories for our users to become immersed in. General Challenge Info Possible Countries · Austria · Belarus · Belgium · Bulgaria · Croatia · Czech Republic · Denmark · Finland · France · Germany · Greece · Holland * · Hungary · Iceland · Ireland * · Israel · Italy · N. Ireland · Norway · Poland · Portugal · Romania · Russia · Scotland · Serbia · Slovakia · Slovenia · Spain · Sweden · Switzerland · Turkey · Ukraine · Wales * Holiday for two seasons not one. The Rules A) Game Set-up 1) Load One Nation Only (All Available Divisions within your nation) 2) Your choice of Database Size (Large Recommended) 3) NO Edited Databases of any kind 4) Customising Database You can add players to the database up to a limit of 100,000 in total in order to add more depth to your save and also add more difficulty down the line. Suggested Adds Players from Top Clubs/Top Divisions (Europe or All Continents) - This increases the challenge at Continental Level Players Based in your Nation - This can add up to 50% more players to your game Players Based in your Region (Central Europe/East Europe/UK & Ireland) - This can add extra players likely to join your club There will be a file correcting the club/competition names, I will advise use of this. NO other additional customising is allowed. 5) Attribute Masking should be Enabled 6) Disable Ingame Editor (Please do this) 7) Optional Ticks Add Key Staff (This will give you a Scout, Physio & Ass Man by generating them if your club is without) Add Players in Playable Nations (This will ensure all clubs have a minimum number of players, generating them if needed) The extra levels of detail that you can change while in the game are up to you, as they shouldn't make a difference. B) Steps in the Game 1) Add an unemployed manager; you will not use this man to manage your club. I like "Unemployed Man or Holiday Man" 2) Go on holiday until the reset date of your chosen nation (Should take about an hour) TIP - Changing Detail Level to None will make it go faster. (Remember to change it back afterwards) TIP - Saving on the day before this date may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this. 3) Add a new manager - Use yourself, or a created character to help build a story line a) Personal Details - Your Choice b) Tracksuit vs. Trainer - Your Choice c) Past Experience lowest Possible (Generally Sunday League) d) Coaching Licenses lowest Possible (None) e) Other options are up to you TIP - If you add the language of your country of choice it will make it easier at the beginning TIP - Training now includes you at some level depending on your abilities. 4) Choose to take over any club which has been promoted to the bottom playable league of your nation. TIP - Easiest way in FM17 to see this is on the "Season Review" screen, showing the "Promoted Clubs" TIP - You can confirm your club by checking the Domestic History's page for not being at this level since start of game 5) Retire your unemployed manager. 6) Manage your club to National Title & European Champions League Victory 7) Completing the Challenge. C) Signing of Players 1) You must be able to scout them TIP - You don't actually have to scout them, just be able to TIP - You can check your scouting range on the Scouting page 2) Alternatively (If you can't scout them), you must bring them on a trial first 3) You are able to sign anyone sent to you via Agent Offer TIP - Make sure you screenshot the Agent offer 4) In later versions you can get your DoF to find players, he will bring in players not in Scouting Range, these are also allowed. TIP - Grab a screenshot of your DoF signing them D) Posting 1) Player naming is allowed. (This is a warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) 2) Discussion of tactics is allowed. (This is another warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) Expected Updates We have minimum expectations when it comes to a first up post and also in the end of season updates. The Bold pages are necessary for everyone; the others are some suggestions that will get others interested in your posts and following your club. All other screenshots are welcome and encouraged, but we please ask that the majority are posted as links, because lots of pictures can make the page very slow to load. First Post: Domestic Leagues History (Club) Profile (Manager) Overview (Club) Squad (Club) End of Season Updates: Transfers (Club) - This is so we can see the ins & outs League Table (Competition) Squad (Club) Information (Manager) Profile (Manager) Information (Club) Profile (Players) Progress of your club should be documented using this thread; we want to hear the story of your club all the way through. Please keep us updated, even if you are doing badly. If you title your end of season report in bold this makes it easier to identify. Everyone will be supportive, and really get into your game if you give more detail. E) Other 1. If you are Sacked 1. You can Restart from the beginning or; 2. Continue your game and pick a new club (Under Same Rules) at the end of the next season or; 3. Add another Euro League/Remove Current League, holiday a whole season and continue 1. You can still only have one nation running at a time 2. Once the league becomes active you MUST holiday a full season 3. The club must be one of those unplayable from the beginning 2. No Restrictions on Parent or Feeder Clubs 3. International Management allowed from FM14 forwards (But you cannot start as an International Manager) The use of any external utilities and editors (Such as Genie Scout or FMM) are prohibited. As of FM14 there are also unlockables, these are also prohibited, please don't use them. It would be appreciated if you also ticked the box at the start which prevents the use of the ingame editor. How to Post a Screenshot 1) While in FM, press the 'Prt Sc' button (usually next to F12 on your keyboard). 2) Open an image editing program such as Paint and paste the image 3) Save the file as a JPEG or PNG 4) Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket or Imageshack 5) Post the direct URL to the image here. Alternatively using ALT + F9 in game saves a screenshot to your user data folder. (You can also edit this in the shortcuts options) The Euro Nation Motivational I would like to thank all of you who choose to participate in this thread this year, and to wish everyone taking on this challenge the best of luck on a long and hard journey to managerial success! I have personally had a number of hugely enjoyable saves over the years, first in Gundos challenge and then latterly in the Big Euro Nation Challenge. The atmosphere and support these threads have historically offered is key in making the thread, and your saves more enjoyable as I can testify to. I and some of the other regulars of these threads are here to help for the new challengers and hope everybody that participates contributes considerably to the thread. There is nothing better than getting immersed not only in your own game but providing the encouragement to other people's attempts too. Remember we are all fighting the same battle - to defeat the AI (and uncover fabulous newgens!) - Therefore it goes without saying that any form of cheating will be severely chastised. Don't do it! I know that it is painful to lose a European Final or to lose the title on the final day (I have been there myself on more than one occasion) but eventual success down the line is all the sweeter for those defeats. Good luck to all the participants – Here’s to a successful (and enjoyable) version!!
  5. Hi. Do I look like Unai Emery? This bodes well, doesn't it? Welcome to my trillionth journeyman career. You know what's the deal: start low, aim to climb the managerial ladder, switch clubs like a mercenary, travel the world, the usual. I'm not planning to do anything outrageously fancy or outside the norm here. This one's special though. Why? Because it's my 10th year of writing careers for the forum, after starting all the way back with FM11. Time flies. Bloody hell. Technical details: As you can tell by the responsibilities thing, I plan to be a very hands-off manager. Can't be arsed with team talks, press conferences and daily training, sorry. I did, however, go back to full fat FM after toying with FM Touch last year.
  6. EDIT: I posted in the wrong place *facepalm* Hi all, I'll try to be brief... I'm trying to improve the standard of the Welsh League & I have spent a fair bit of time improving teams, stadiums, reputations etc.. across three divisions. However, I'm stuck with European coefficients & more specifically "Nation Club Coefficients". I have improved the historical coefficients of all the teams in the league, but Wales is still listed in 50th position in the table. I have wildly exaggerated these ratings too, having 8 or 9 teams sitting in the top 40 European teams just to prove it is having no effect. Wales are still 50th. What am I missing? I've spent hours (days) trawling through the forum & searching through the menus in the Editor for an answer and I'm getting nowhere! Please help, GrunDMC
  7. So I moved hibernian to league two and have worked myself up to the top of the premier league. Last season I finished 4th, but i did not qualify for the champions league or europa league. Is this because I moved the club to a different country or what?
  8. Last year I had a great time managing all over Europe. So much that this year I'm planning to do the same. Loaded nations are the following: Belarus, Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. I want to try some of these more obscure Eastern Europe nations in which I have never managed in. I'm excluding some nations (Russia, Romania, Greece, Turkey) as I don't want to repeat countries from my last save. The plan is to move freely and win silverware in as many countries as possible. Initially, I only want to manage one club per nation, so let's see how I can do that and win trophies. I'm starting unemployed and without a particular place in mind to begin. Also, I'm playing this save on FMT. Feedback from the community has been positive and I want to maximise my playing time. I restarted the save but this time in full classic mode, as there are some annoying aspects in FMT which I (still) can't cope with for a long term save.

  10. Introduction After years of reading career threads, I've finally decided to make an account and give this a go. My name is NF7 and I'm buzzing to get started on this save. I haven't actually had a long-term game since FM15, but will be changing that with this thread. What will this be? A typical, unoriginal, classic journeyman save. I'll be playing exclusively in Europe, moving where I please, and trying to play the game realistically. Inspiration for my update style will be largely based off my favorite threads by TomTuck and SRL88, as those are the ones that first got me into reading this forum and were fantastic careers. Leagues Loaded England | League Two France | Championnat National Germany | 3. Bundesliga Italy | Lega Pro (Serie C) Spain | Segunda División B Portugal | Liga II Holland | Dutch Tweede Divisie Belgium | Derde Klasse (3rd tier) Poland | I Liga (2nd tier) Hungary | Nemzeti Bojnokság II (2nd tier) I want my first job to be out of the top 5 leagues and hopefully somewhere like Hungary or Poland, where I've never managed before. Meet my manager, Luca Romano, a 33 year-old Italian. I've given myself professional experience at the local level and no coaching badges to start off. I'll be starting at a low level, but not the complete bottom of the barrel. The only language spoken is Italian, but by the end of the career, I'll have hopefully picked up a lot more. Objectives My only real objective is to enjoy the save, anything else is a bonus. I want to make this long-term and hopefully win a lot of silverware, but how it happens just depends on where the game takes it. I'll be making an effort to play defensive, counter-attacking football throughout this career as that's a style I haven't tried much but would like to give it a go. It would be cool to build a team similar to Mourinho's first Chelsea side, which rarely conceded goals and was devastating on the break. I hope you enjoy reading this career! I'm looking forward to getting back into this game and reading some of the newer FM19 threads. Wish me luck!
  11. FM18 All-European (Less England) Small Club to Big Club Challenge Introduction Welcome to a new chapter in the history of the ‘Euro Nation’ Challenge, born out of the recent history of the highly successful Gundo’s Challenge and the Big Euro Nation Challenge that spawned out of it. Originally set up as an alternative to the hugely successful Dafuges Challenge for FM06, Gundos Challenge offered an alternative for people who wanted to play in another European country. The Big Euro Nation Challenge followed for FM08 and, like Gundo’s Challenge, has had some fantastic stories over the years. These threads have always been hugely popular and successful thanks to those who played, and who still take part, in the challenges. Some of the stories are legendary, and hopefully more of these will be born in this, and future, versions of the game. The premise of the challenge is the same, and simple, to start with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to winning the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, providing a great atmosphere and stories for our users to become immersed in. General Challenge Info Possible Countries Austria Belarus Belgium Bulgaria Croatia Czech Republic Denmark Finland France - June 20th Germany Greece Holland * Hungary Iceland Ireland * Israel Italy - July 30th N. Ireland - 25th June Norway - January 13th Poland Portugal Romania Russia Scotland Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain - July 10th Sweden - December 15th Switzerland Turkey Ukraine Wales * Holiday for two seasons not one. League Reset Dates Austria - 13th June Belarus Belgium Bulgaria Croatia Czech Republic Denmark Finland France Germany Greece Holland * Hungary Iceland Ireland * Israel Italy N. Ireland Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russia Scotland Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey Ukraine Wales The Rules A) Game Set-up 1) Load One Nation Only (All Available Divisions within your nation) 2) Your choice of Database Size (Large Recommended) 3) NO Edited Databases of any kind 4) Customising Database You can add players to the database up to a limit of 100,000 in total in order to add more depth to your save and also add more difficulty down the line. Suggested Adds Players from Top Clubs/Top Divisions (Europe or All Continents) - This increases the challenge at Continental Level Players Based in your Nation - This can add up to 50% more players to your game Players Based in your Region (Central Europe/East Europe/UK & Ireland) - This can add extra players likely to join your club There will be a file correcting the club/competition names, I will advise use of this. NO other additional customising is allowed. 5) Attribute Masking should be Enabled 6) Disable Ingame Editor (Please do this) 7) Optional Ticks Add Key Staff (This will give you a Scout, Physio & Ass Man by generating them if your club is without) Add Players in Playable Nations (This will ensure all clubs have a minimum number of players, generating them if needed) The extra levels of detail that you can change while in the game are up to you, as they shouldn't make a difference. B) Steps in the Game 1) Add an unemployed manager; you will not use this man to manage your club. I like "Unemployed Man or Holiday Man" 2) Go on holiday until the reset date of your chosen nation (Should take about an hour) TIP - Changing Detail Level to None will make it go faster. (Remember to change it back afterwards) TIP - Saving on the day before this date may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this. 3) Add a new manager - Use yourself, or a created character to help build a story line a) Personal Details - Your Choice b) Tracksuit vs. Trainer - Your Choice c) Past Experience lowest Possible (Generally Sunday League) d) Coaching Licenses lowest Possible (None) e) Other options are up to you TIP - If you add the language of your country of choice it will make it easier at the beginning TIP - Training now includes you at some level depending on your abilities. 4) Choose to take over any club which has been promoted to the bottom playable league of your nation. TIP - Easiest way in FM17 to see this is on the "Season Review" screen, showing the "Promoted Clubs" TIP - You can confirm your club by checking the Domestic History's page for not being at this level since start of game 5) Retire your unemployed manager. 6) Manage your club to National Title & European Champions League Victory 7) Completing the Challenge. C) Signing of Players 1) You must be able to scout them TIP - You don't actually have to scout them, just be able to TIP - You can check your scouting range on the Scouting page 2) Alternatively (If you can't scout them), you must bring them on a trial first 3) You are able to sign anyone sent to you via Agent Offer TIP - Make sure you screenshot the Agent offer 4) In later versions you can get your DoF to find players, he will bring in players not in Scouting Range, these are also allowed. TIP - Grab a screenshot of your DoF signing them D) Posting 1) Player naming is allowed. (This is a warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) 2) Discussion of tactics is allowed. (This is another warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) Expected Updates We have minimum expectations when it comes to a first up post and also in the end of season updates. The Bold pages are necessary for everyone; the others are some suggestions that will get others interested in your posts and following your club. All other screenshots are welcome and encouraged, but we please ask that the majority are posted as links, because lots of pictures can make the page very slow to load. First Post: Domestic Leagues History (Club) Profile (Manager) Overview (Club) Squad (Club) End of Season Updates: Transfers (Club) - This is so we can see the ins & outs League Table (Competition) Squad (Club) Information (Manager) Profile (Manager) Information (Club) Profile (Players) Progress of your club should be documented using this thread; we want to hear the story of your club all the way through. Please keep us updated, even if you are doing badly. If you title your end of season report in bold this makes it easier to identify. Everyone will be supportive, and really get into your game if you give more detail. E) Other 1. If you are Sacked 1. You can Restart from the beginning or; 2. Continue your game and pick a new club (Under Same Rules) at the end of the next season or; 3. Add another Euro League/Remove Current League, holiday a whole season and continue 1. You can still only have one nation running at a time 2. Once the league becomes active you MUST holiday a full season 3. The club must be one of those unplayable from the beginning 2. No Restrictions on Parent or Feeder Clubs 3. International Management allowed from FM14 forwards (But you cannot start as an International Manager) The use of any external utilities and editors (Such as Genie Scout or FMM) are prohibited. As of FM14 there are also unlockables, these are also prohibited, please don't use them. It would be appreciated if you also ticked the box at the start which prevents the use of the ingame editor. How to Post a Screenshot 1) While in FM, press the 'Prt Sc' button (usually next to F12 on your keyboard). 2) Open an image editing program such as Paint and paste the image 3) Save the file as a JPEG or PNG 4) Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket or Imageshack 5) Post the direct URL to the image here. Alternatively using ALT + F9 in game saves a screenshot to your user data folder. (You can also edit this in the shortcuts options) The Euro Nation Motivational I would like to thank all of you who choose to participate in this thread this year, and to wish everyone taking on this challenge the best of luck on a long and hard journey to managerial success! I have personally had a number of hugely enjoyable saves over the years, first in Gundos challenge and then latterly in the Big Euro Nation Challenge. The atmosphere and support these threads have historically offered is key in making the thread, and your saves more enjoyable as I can testify to. I and some of the other regulars of these threads are here to help for the new challengers and hope everybody that participates contributes considerably to the thread. There is nothing better than getting immersed not only in your own game but providing the encouragement to other people's attempts too. Remember we are all fighting the same battle - to defeat the AI (and uncover fabulous newgens!) - Therefore it goes without saying that any form of cheating will be severely chastised. Don't do it! I know that it is painful to lose a European Final or to lose the title on the final day (I have been there myself on more than one occasion) but eventual success down the line is all the sweeter for those defeats. Good luck to all the participants – Here’s to a successful (and enjoyable) version!!
  12. My previous attempts (ever) at a journeyman career have failed miserably, but this year I have a feeling that my determination will guide me through a long save that hopefully will be fun to document. The aim is to build a long and successful career at any cost, which means taking whatever job is around the corner and hopefully do well enough to snatch a bigger one after some time. This is the starting setup, I only have some db files to correct names. This is my manager profile. I'm starting as low as possible to reflect what should be a somewhat realistic journeyman career. I plan to do season-end updates, as well as when I take charge in a new club.
  13. Hi all. I'm here to announce my brand new experiment where everyone could participate if they want. What does the experiment hold in? Holiday. A lot. To be precise on what must be done, holiday through the first possible season of your European country of choice except San Marino. Then do it again and again. You'll create a history of a single season, with twists and turns every time you reload. I will keep track in a neat sheet in Excel so you could always take a look and see if any club is the standout champ or always get relegated. Setup Screen -First select the European country you want that someone else is not currently active in. We are excluding San Marino from this experiment for the sole reason that it's the only European league with a significantly different competition structure, having knockouts after a group stage instead of a normal round robin or split league. It's hard to keep track of league position that way, so please pick one of the 54 other leagues. -Only load the top division of said country. Nothing else. -Choose for an advanced player count, select a large database and under the tab, add the country you'll experiment in, and finally tick the 'Players from top division clubs' box for full immersion. -Advanced options are as follows: Adding players to playable teams is crucial for the small countries, where not every team could field a full 11 (or fill the bench for that matter) with no grays. Disabling the first transfer window allows for slightly more consistent results with other people as teams aren't as able to transfer players in or out at the beginning, especially in the big money leagues. -The game start date is the 'Start Of *blank* Season' to keep the transfers even more minimal and gives a swifter experience getting into the nitty gritty of it all. In-Game Setup 1. Add a manager. Totally irrelevant who or what. 2. Make sure the detail level of the top division of your country is set to it's maximum, and everything else to 'None'. 3. Holiday/spacebar to the day before the league starts. 4. Save and exit the game. 5. Backup your save file, give it a name so you could recognize the difference. 6. Re-enter the save. 7. Holiday to the day after the league ends. You can find it under the 'Rules' tab of your competition. 8. Share a picture of the full league table, among other findings you may find interesting to keep the experiment entertaining. 9. Rinse and repeat, remember to specify how many times you have simulated in every post. My Role To make this all worth it, the post below is where all stats will go. Whenever someone updates their season, so will I. What I will write down is the amount of times a club has finished in a surden position, among with a few records including highest/lowest points tally and best/worst goal difference. Rules -Every FM or FMT that can follow these rules with next to no problem is allowed in the case of default leagues. -Only @claassen's Megapack may be used as extra league database. This means that countries only available in the Megapack are only viable options from FM17 onwards. -Please specify whether you are using the Megapack in conjunction with the default leagues or not. Leagues included in it do not have this neccesity. -Only cosmetic changes are allowed otherwise, as long as they allow the league table to be viewed in full at all times. -If one person has already started an experiment in a specific country in a specific FM version, please make sure to pick another one to reduce repetitiveness. -Any suspicion of cheating may mean your part of the experiment has failed and traces will be removed. Feel free to return anytime though if you can keep to the afromentioned! With all that said and done, enjoy the ride and let chaos ensue!
  14. Now that the beta is out the way, time to start with the good stuff. Playing FM over the years, I've always stopped and started new saves for various reasons, never had a save go over three seasons really. I'm sure its a familiar tale with many of you! Well, I've decided this year, I will only allow myself to do one save, lets go beyond the three seasons and see what happens, for better or for worse! I could be sacked 10 times, win a major trophy every year, or something in between. I'm not going to manage in England at all for a change. Time to explore other countries. I will load up; Germany, France, Spain, Holland, Italy, Portugal (I will load three leagues from each country if i'm able to). I will start unemployed with sunday league experience and English nationality. It will be interesting to see how long it will take to get employed and who offer me a job! I have no set rules for this save, other than it will keep going until fm19 comes out. Will I stay with one club or move around? Will I even play this game every week? Who knows, I think this is much of a personal story as well as an FM story. I will update as I go along. I can't promise how long or often these will be, but i'm hoping to have an interesting story nevertheless! So, lets get onto loading the leagues and starting the game......

  17. December 27, 2016 Chapter 1: The dream Looking through the thread of football manager forums, I always think about these wonderful stories that are created until I see a thread by the user of ManUtd1. Looking through his thread it may me, wonder what should I be doing with my life and even though the idea of this thread was only just for Champions League, I wanted to take this one step further and include all European runner up teams, not just the Champions League. Going to my roommate who was sitting at the kitchen table, I said to him “I want to be a real football manager”. He looks at me, confused and wondering what got that into my mind before quietly saying “Have you had too much to drink again because that is the third time this week you have had a stupid idea.” After explaining what my idea came from and how I was going to do it, he only thought of one thing to think of. “There is no way you would do such a thing, for god sake you don’t even have any coaching qualifications so what makes you think that this is a great idea. Especially when there are forty-three clubs that have been close but not winning.” He had a point, but that wouldn’t deter me from doing it and knowing the risks that I had set myself, I replied: “Think of all the money that I could get if I was to become successful in managing clubs plus how hard can it be to manage a football team.” My roommate just shook his head as he is probably thinking that this couldn’t go ahead. Welcome to my new story where with the inspiration of @ManUtd1, I have decided to do the challenge of getting a European title with all of the teams that are on the list which is forty-three of them and it will be one of those saves were it a long journeyman series. Here are the two lists with the clubs and where they do start in this save. So the leagues that I have loaded in are Austria – Top 2 leagues Belgium – Top 2 leagues England – Top 3 leagues France – Top 3 leagues Germany – Top 5 leagues [With the added German pack] Greece – Top League Hungary – Top 2 leagues Italy – Top League Netherlands – Top 2 leagues Poland – Top 2 leagues Portugal – Top 2 leagues Russia – Top 3 leagues Scotland – Top 2 leagues Spain – Top 2 leagues Sweden – Top 2 leagues Ukraine – Top 2 leagues
  18. Hello and welcome to the next installment in my Football Manager career series. I have just taken the plane out of England after abandoning Stourbrigde whom I took from the Conference North to the League One over the course of 13 seasons, in an interrupted Dafuge Challenge. On this next career, I will be embarking on a free journey throughout the world, pursuing one thing: recognition as the most successful Portuguese manager of all time. Evidently, there is just one slight issue that makes this a little daunting. The career of this man, crowned so many times across Portugal, England, Italy and Spain: Inspired by @AK22's legendary career overcoming Alex Ferguson's records, I will be attempting to break past José Mourinho total points in FM's Hall of Fame as the ultimate goal of this career. However, I am not obsessed by trophies and will not just blindly follow whatever gives me more change of success. I just wanna have some fun playing some good football! These are the leagues I have loaded up at the beginning: This is a lot of leagues, hopefully it's not too slow. I do not have any edited leagues loaded up at the beginning, but have a lot of @claassen's Leagues World Pack files active so I can load them up in the future if I wish so! And these are my beginning stats: Right... shall we begin? I've taken a plane to a very specific place for a slightly random, but carefully planned place to kick off a managerial career...
  19. In my FM career I've had many saves, most of them very short-lived might I add and that's my own undoing. I play too fast and get too burnt out but I just can't put the game down, if FM is my addiction (which it is) then at least it's not that bad. I couldn't think of a witty title but much like my final FM16 save located here, this will be a slog through Europe. Another downfall of mine is I set myself a lot of hard/improbable challenges and push to get to where I 'need' to be as quick as I can but this is different, there are no challenges, there are no aims maybe I'll win some silverware and maybe I won't but either way we'll be going on one hell of a journey! 54 countries. A large database. 127 leagues (one more than in FM16 (mainly because I added the Welsh 2nd tier for more variety there)). There's a long time until FM18 so hopefully I can really get into this! I'll be starting unemployed with no badges at the earliest starting point which I think is Finland's at 25/12/2015. I'll be going on holiday mode to try to get rid of as many of the original managerless clubs as I can and after 5 or 6 months I'll start applying for jobs and see where I end up.
  20. My Livorno save was getting to be a little grating trying to compete in Serie A while playing Serie B/C quality players. I also realised my updates should be a little more engaging. After looking at many of the best threads on this board, I decided to go for a European journeyman, as I didn't want to be stuck at a club that I may not enjoy. Here are the leagues I have loaded up. https://gyazo.com/b37ad228acd6fb7e1bf980bffc0fe7b7
  21. Well where to begin, I have always wanted to try a Journeyman save but have neither the skill (I am just not very good at this game) or the patience. So after being inspired by @Makoto Nakamurajourney from Estonia to Luxemburg and onto Portugal and France I am here hoping that writing about my journey will force me to overcome my lack of patience and see this through while also making light of my lack of ability, and hey I may even learn a thing or two along the way. I don't really know why but I have also decided that throughout this journey I am going to stick to 4-4-2 'shape'. So without further ado lets make a start . . . I am sticking to Europe and setting the big four leagues to only the top 2 tiers in each to save them for when (if) I get my rep up I have gone large on the database which should be fine looking at the feedback After applying for and getting interviews for a couple of jobs with no success it was third time lucky (or maybe unlucky) and I was offered the job as manager of . . . Hamarkameratene (literally the Hamar Comrades), often abbreviated to HamKam or Ham-Kam, is a Norwegian football club based in the town of Hamar. The club was founded in 1918, originally under the name Freidig. HamKam were most recently promoted to the Norwegian Premier League in 2007. A third-place finish in 1970 is the highest position that the team has held in the Premier League; the club has never progressed beyond the semifinals of the Norwegian Cup, last reaching the semifinals in 1989. Briskeby gressbane has been the home ground of Hamarkameratene since 1936. The construction of a completely modernized stadium began in 2007. Upon completion, expected in 2009, Briskeby will have a capacity of 10.200 spectators, whereas the capacity prior to the modernization was approximately 8000. (The above is from Wiki) Well it is certainly going to be a baptism of fire looking at the table and their results so far this season (and yes that is the bottom 7 places being the relegation zone!) Well that's all for now, time to study the squad and figure out what I have let myself in for
  22. 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......
  23. Chapter 1: The confusion I didn’t understand where I was as I woke up on that rainy morning. For starters, I knew I wasn’t on my bed because the sheets weren’t the purple that I had been used to but instead it was white without any dirt on it. Thinking that I might be dreaming, I looked for something to test my theory. But everywhere I looked, there was nothing to test this out. “Ah, I can see that our patient is awake now” the doctor that must have been treating me saying to his fellow doctors. “How are you today?” Trying to be all calm and not showing any confused, I responded: “I am fine now, also when can I leave this place?” “Don’t worry you should be able to leave in about two days” I felt a sense of relief as my confusion started to go up instead of down as I sense the feeling of not being welcome here. I felt like I needed to ask one last question just so I can sense what that feeling was. “Umm, Doctor, can I ask what year is this?” The doctor looks at me, confused for a second before saying his reply, “2014 sir, June 19 to be exact.” That sudden feeling coming to me now, I had somehow while I sleep went back in time three years to the exact date it was today or I think it was before somehow going back in time. OOC: Don't worry all will be explain later.
  24. Inspired by @Makoto Nakamuraand his European Adventure, I am going to do one of my own, though I will only be using the leagues "out of the box" so to speak, with the exception of Gibraltar, which I have added as this is an official SI league update. Game Type - Journeyman. I will be starting unemployed. Rules - I have imposed a few rules and they are as follows: I am not allowed to apply for any job, unless I am unemployed. I must be approached if I am currently managing a club. I do not have to accept a job offer if I do not wish to. I am allowed to resign from my post if I wish. Reputation - Sunday League. Starting Qualifications - None. Editor's Used - Real Competition Names. Huge database added. Leagues Loaded Austria. Belarus. Belgium. Bulgaria. Croatia. Czech Republic. Denmark. England. Finland. France. Germany. Gibraltar. Greece. Hungary. Iceland. Ireland. Israel. Italy. Netherlands. Northern Ireland. Norway. Poland. Portugal. Romania. Russia. Scotland. Serbia. Slovakia. Slovenia. Spain. Sweden. Switzerland. Turkey. Ukraine. Wales. Database Size - Huge. Updates - I only intend to update at the end of each season, together with the youth candidates day. Youth - I love to develop players, so any player I feel has a chance to make the first team will be tagged. YP17a1 for example, would mean Youth Player from 2017. The "a" means he is the best prospect from that intake and the "1" means he is the first youth prospect I have produced in my career. Records - I am a bit of a statto, so will be keeping detailed records during this save which you can see in the next few posts.
  25. So I got tired of my save in Ireland and I needed something else to fuel my obsession. That something is a continuation of a Southampton save that I started as my second ever save. I'll throw up the previous season's standings as I'm in season 4 right now. 2015/16 2016/17 2017/18 I will post more details if you guys want them over the coming days but this is all I have time for right now. Buckle up and get ready for the ride where ever it takes us because there's no set goal for this!
