  1. Introduction I have read santy001 and oliscots great Harrogate and Salford story and wanted to try out lower league management again in FM18 to see how quickly I can promote to the Premier League. To make it a real challenge I didn't want to take over any of the best teams teams in Vanarama North and a semi-professional one. Since I'm a Manchester United fan, I choose FC Manchester of United and my goal is to one day be the best team i Manchester :) Initial analysis -Because we are semi-professional and has poor trainings facilities, training won't develop the players much. So to develop players so that they can stay in the team a few promotions, I have to focus on buying youngsters (age 17-22) who develops more than older players and can be tutored. Tutoring will increase their determination, which I think is very important for players in the lower leagues. -With a team with many young players it's important to have good leaders, so I need to sign good captains and vice-captains. -Poor youth facilities, minimal junior coaching and basic youth recruitment means that I can't expect any youth candidates to ever play for the first team before the facilities are upgraded a lot. So all youngsters, before the facilities are upgraded, must be signed after they are released from other teams or found in a National U18/19/20/21-team. (many regens from smaller nations appears in National teams before they are signed by a club) -We have only £ 8,722 in the bank and wage- and transfer budgets of £3,917 and £8,372, so many players must be loaned to save some money and players must be signed on a free transfer. -The team comparison shows that the team are worst in many important attributes: str, com, off, dri, pas... So most of the existing team has to be sold, loaned out or released. Of the existing squad only Allinson and Irwin seems to be good enough to secure promotion to Vanarama National. Exciting news so, Glory, glory united Man, I guess.
  2. Welcome to my first career thread. Having lurked on the site since the Beta of FM17, and being inspired to try different styles of gameplay, now comes my first attempt to document a save. Background Having grown up with CM01/02 and remembering the split between CM and FM, there were a few years away from the game, having purchased FM09 then a gap until 17, I was looking for something different than taking over Liverpool (own team) and failing to avoid the sack. Stumbling across the forum I was drawn to the different styles of play and challenges, trying out the British Steel Challenge in FM17, and a Youth Only save using the Level 22 database (only going to L10 though) with Hayes and Yeading in FM18. While I haven't decided to make the leap to FM19 yet, I want to try documenting a save, seeing what happens as I try, usually fail, and how strictly I can stick to the rules I have enforced. Game Setup As the title suggests I am loading up the divisions in Belgium, Holland, and Luxembourg. I have also added the big 5 as low as they will go (Claassen megapack loaded) as view only Filtering for the leagues available, I am going to start in Luxembourg as unemployed and to see what happens
  3. So, there's some work going on at my house. Including some electrical work... To further preface, for around the last 5 seasons, I've been purely saving my main game on cloud. I had FM on in the background as I was working, when everything was turned off. I went to reload it later, but the save file would not start up. Is there anything I can do, or just learn to save on both disk and cloud in the future? If you need any more info, let me know!
  4. Welcome to the Ultimate Legends 1880 - 2018! * Accurate ratings and statistics due to extensive research and testing, every player is correctly coded, no stats are left to the computer to generate so you don't get lots of players with inaccurate ratings for vital statistics. Every single legend and star is tested prior to release to ensure they play exactly like their real life counterparts. * No Duplicate Players as the whole database has been checked and re-checked to ensure no duplication's at all. * The whole game is re-coded from top to bottom and the ratings system has been changed significantly so please do not compare FM18 player ratings to the player ratings in the Ultimate Legends game. No player is released into the game until fully researched and fully tested. Significant Modern players have also been re-coded to bring them into line with their legendary counterparts in terms of the new player ratings system. Brexit has been removed & NO FOREGROUND SUGAR DADDIES * Full Squads for all major teams throughout the world and you can check them all out in the opening pages. These squads may still be updated up until the point of release. After release new squads and players will continue to be updated accordingly to ensure this legends game continually improves and maintains its very high standards.
  5. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ History on Football Manager. Below are the 2 major saves I have had with Stopsley Utd on Football Manager. I did attempt some saves on other versions but none that lasted more than just a few seasons, the saves on FM10 lasted 50 seasons and on FMC15 was 64 seasons. Updates and some details and stats from those saves. _________________________________________________________ FM10 Stopsley Utd - The FM Era! Club Honours - Manager Stats - Best XI _____________________________________ FMC15 Stopsley Utd - The FMC Era! Club Honours - Manager Stats - Best XI ________________________________________________________________________________________________ The FMC15 save is continuing with me now playing as Stopsley Utd Legend Barry Rodan. Currently managing Tottenham Hotspur, that will now be a journeyman career game rather than a one club game now, I have struggled to get into any other saves right now, tried a youth only save, not completely given up on it yet but just not feeling it right now. Anyway I am confident in this one and after playing FMC and FMT versions mostly since the choice of between the two was introduced I have decided to give Full Fat a really good go again, as it is going to be a one club save I want to be able to have more control over the club. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ We will start this era in League One and we have replaced the Mk Dons. I have signed 23 players, no players are younger than 30 and they will all be familiar names to you, 3 players were signed from Premier League clubs and the others have all played in the Premier League in the past. Some of those players have also been given staff roles, you will also notice a couple of faces below, the chairman was just random but it just suited my set up. I am looking forward to having a long save. I will reveal my squad shortly. ________________________________________________________________________________________________
  6. Correct me if I am mistaken, from my knowledge the star rating of players is relative or compared to the players that are currently playing in the league you’re managing, for example: the average CA of players playing in the premier league is 150, so anyone with a CA of 150 will have 3 stars, 160 will have 3.5 stars, 170+ will have 4 stars and so on (this is probably inaccurate but let it be for example’s sake). If there was an influx of players with a CA of 165+ and the average CA of players in the league increased, would players that were rated as “First Team” players but are now “Back Up” or “Rotation” be more willing to drop down a division? Would this also be the case for players abroad that you’re looking to bring in? Context: I created a database for South Africa and upped the Youth Rating for the nation considerably, my dilemma is that the new intakes have CA that is already good enough to consider them as Back Ups or Rotation options for their first teams and a few seasons in the top division clubs and national team are decked out with u21 players as Key Players and youth players refuse to be loaned out to any lower league club in the nation because they are “too good” for them. Now I thought I would be able to counter this problem by using an in-game editor and orchestrating the transfer market for local top division clubs clubs and bring in relatively high CA players but I want to know if this will have a knock-on effect on the lower divisions or will my efforts be in vain?
  7. 309. I had been to the 40 000 all-seater Campéon del Siglo before. At the time I was hopeful of managing the then 40-year old legend who scored the first goal at this new stadium in 2016: Diego Forlan. He’d returned from a stint in India to play for Fénix, a struggling side that had just been promoted against all odds. After finishing his career there, in hindsight he should have retired after he came back over to Montevideo for the first time. Returning to his boyhood club after a four-year post-Europe tour in Brazil and Japan, he scored the goals to sign them off in their old stadium and get them going in their new one. It was a fairy tale 12 months, winning the Campeonato Uruguayo halfway through the new transition back to the calendar year league format. If I could find out where he was, maybe he could be tempted to work as an assistant at the third most successful finalists in Copa Libertadores history: Club Atlético Peñarol. The International Federation of Football History and Statistics’ South American Club of the Century had won more than 50 domestic titles and kept pace with Argentinean monsters River Plate and Boca Juniors in continental competition, although Independiente were a modern-day colossus with three Copa Libertadores wins in a row. Their rivalry with Nacional was immense; if one didn’t win the title the other would. This was a huge job. Ecuadorean side Liga de Quito are in town, the only side to have dropped points against Peñarol, and were going home with nothing more than participation money. Since that opening fixture Manyas had lost every game in the competition, and back to back defeats against River hardly helped their heavyweight claims. Paraguayan side Libertad currently topped the group by two points and only needed to avoid a loss in Argentina – this was not a campaign that should have been thrown away. The Uruguayan side had only scored two goals and remarkably both came in the first minute in Ecuador and Paraguay before throwing the game away. A cool shower descended over the city. At least 35 000 people had turned up to see this game and if anyone was stupid enough to not take their seats before kick-off they would be rushing in after that roar from the crowd. From the off the ball was worked wide left of the 4-2-3-1 DM Wide formation and Saracchi beat his man on the wing and whipped in a deep cross which was headed up in the air by the Liga de Quito defence. Right winger Sirino didn’t let two thoughts enter his head and hit the sweetest volley into the near post to make it 1-0 inside 15 seconds! Lightning had struck a third time in the first minute for Peñarol. The defensive box employed by the Ecuadoreans had a long night on. The visitors did well to control the ball thereafter but an incisive move in and around the box got the hosts 2-0 to the good, Sirino again providing the finish. Number ten Elizari had played a lovely square ball with his back to goal to assist the strike. After quarter of an hour the game is surely settled now. A knee injury to Saracchi saw play subdued and he didn’t reappear for the second half. Sirino took a knock soon after and the visitors made two quick changes to try and get back in the game. The home side’s defence had little to do and it looked like complacency was setting in. Liga de Quito were very frustrated but the manager showed no tactical guile is trying to alter the game, just throwing on his third substitute to freshen up the central column once more. Peñarol were quick to win the ball with possession lost and that tenacity saw left wing substitute Rodríguez drive at the opposition and cross into the middle. Again the ‘keeper punched clear but not far enough. Sirino… hat-trick! A crashing hit across the goalkeeper for a marvellous trio of goals, Elizari again the master of the one-touch assist. He was taken off for a well-deserved ovation soon after. Rodríguez still wanted his name in lights, if only as a subheading, and came inside to strike low and hard into the bottom corner with a quarter of an hour left. It had been a terrific performance from the attacking midfielders but caretaker Jorge Gonçalves, a Peñarol veteran of 20 years as player and staff, had recognised the lack of mobility with the striker and replaced him five minutes previous. The game petered out. The defensive players had been so tough all night long and rightly celebrated together while the attackers congratulated each other. The tactic created these divisions but it was fantastic to see these men turn a corner as one. The Valencia Football Review called to clarify a few things about my departure, completely unaware of where I was, and it felt good to talk away from home. I wouldn’t have to look anyone in the eye in response to what they read in the newspapers. Peñarol would keep me waiting until the Intermedio was a fortnight away before offering an interview. It had been an expensive five days at short notice in the hotel. New president Carlos Ádrian Noble had formally invited me by letter but on the day the director Ricardo Peluffo was the only one at the interview. There was a managing director who could not make it as well as another, less senior director who was now away on holiday. It seemed like this was at least plausible, despite the yarns I have been spun by suits in the past. He wasn’t a man to get on the wrong side of; immediately he spoke of his ‘considerable reservations’ about the time I spent at my previous clubs. I rode the storm and stuck my neck out, asking about the data analysis facilities and if the training ground was at the level required to dominate Uruguayan football. I had to impress this guy after all. He eventually let the business mask slip and looked to be warming to me, or maybe he had just forgotten that conversations with the manager didn’t have to be a terse post-defeat war. I begged him to take a chance on me. I explained how my ground-breaking approach last season had led to a win ratio of 67% and it would never be bettered at Mestalla. I cheekily told him I’d also won every cup I’ve ever entered, and we shared a laugh. Have I convinced him?

  11. Real Sociedad de Fútbol, S.A.D. Hailing from San Sebastián, capital city of Gipuzkoa, Real Sociedad are very much the second club of the Basque Autonomous Community. They have two La Liga titles (1980-81, 1981-82) to Athletic's 8 and two Copa del Rey (1909, 1987) to Athletic's 23. Like Athletic, their greatest successes came in the 20th century adhering to a Basque-only signing policy, which they abandoned in 1989 when signing John Aldridge from Liverpool. If the change was meant to bring success, it backfired - a runners-up position in La Liga in 2002-03 is the only success they've had since. So, in this save I'm reinstating the Basque-only policy in the hope of bringing success back to Anoeta! I'm also going to somewhat define us against Athletic, at least initially - where they're know for being physical teams with great strength at CB with the likes of Laporte, and target men up front (Fernando Llorente, Aduriz) we're going to be a possession-based team to take advantage of our technical players - the likes of Asier Illarramendi, Rubén Pardo, and Xabi Prieto (in what will most likely be his final season with the club. To that end I've requested these philosophies: FM18 was chosen as in the club lost four good Basque players in the time between the release of FM18 and FM19: Iñigo Martínez (to Athletic), Álvaro Odriozola (to Real Madrid), Xabi Prieto (retired) and Imanol Agirretxe (retired due to injury) whilst only bringing one in (Mikel Merino from Newcastle). Facilities Despite moving away from the all-Basque policy Real Sociedad have a strong youth policy, with 12 players from the cantera in the first team squad. This is reflected in-game, although there is still room for improvement. Anoeta, built in 1993 is a very good quality stadium (eligible for Champions League finals). In real life as of 2018-19 the running track has been removed and it will eventually reach a capacity of 42,300 but the above image reflects the 32,000 capacity we have in FM18.
  12. 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!!
  13. 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?

  15. So, me and a friend have an online save for FM18. Recently he has experienced crash dumps pretty much every 4 to 7 days (in game). We have tried everything we can think of to fix the problem, without any success. Please come with suggestions or questions regarding our situation, we’ll try anything. Thank you.
  16. After playing this game for about 2/3 months now, I've experienced a number of crashes. I run the game, load my save and play normally then the screen goes black and it crashes to desktop. This has happened to two separate saves. It can occur anywhere from 5 minutes of playing the game to 3 hours after launching the game. It seems more prevalent when left idle and when not watching matches for prolonged periods of time, during transfer windows etc. So far I've tried three different graphic card drivers, removed all custom graphics and removed any anti-malware software that potentially could aggravate it. This is the only game that I've had this issue with, starting to drive me mad as there seems to be no logical thing causing this crash. It's only created a crash dump on two separate occasions but doesn't create one every single time. It also produces no error message when it crashes to the desktop.

  17. 252. The next morning, we were back at Cuidad Deportiva de Paterna. Ortiz is now a trusted assistant and his playing experience would be a massive asset to these starlets. He knew what it meant to be some young kid trying to find his way at a big club’s B team, having come through the ranks at Atlético. He broke through into the first team La Liga squad but soon left on a two-year loan to Osasuna to add to his game time. When that diminished, he dropped down to the Segunda Division for a year before an eventful four years at Almeria. Upon relegation he was sold to Scottish titans Rangers for € 1M. That didn’t work out and this was where his hindsight could help our players. He was loaned back for that second half of the season before being brought back to La Liga. After battling relegation at Granada, he saw out his final year on loan in the Valencian community at Hércules in the Segunda Division, yet he was to suffer another relegation. The bravery to go abroad again at 32 was commendable, and he was rewarded with a three year stay at AEK Larnakas in Cyprus, finishing league runners up behind a five-time league winning giant in APOEL. He had been all around Spain and across the water twice. It was certainly something for these players to learn from every day in training. He would earn respect. Director General Mateu Alemany met us at the door, introduced himself and fellow director Juanma Lora, and beckoned to follow him into the meeting room. Owner Peter Lim wasn’t there, and neither was club president Anil Murthy. Were they coming later? No, came the curt reply. They will contact you when they see fit – they have a La Liga club to run. Alemany ran operations and was our boss. If we couldn’t get hold of him then speak to Lora. The size of this club! They needed departments just to delineate the workload. It was mesmerising. Under-19s Manager Miguel Grau was already in the room, as was ex-Barcelona stalwart José Ramón Alexanko who was the Basque Director of Football. Gentlemen, you must decide your responsibilities between yourselves. The Director General was in no mood for pleasantries. We are here to mediate but ultimately you all share the remit to develop players for the first team. The minimum expectation is that Mestalla avoid relegation from Segunda División. We have been waiting for nearly 50 years to get the team to this level and we are not going to let any of you derail that. Someone will carry the can if we fail. Vílchez and Camacho did not want that level of heat so they are gone. Imposta, Ortiz… you two are last in the door and will be first out. With that, Alemany and Lora were gone. Grau, a friendly face in all of this, broke the silence and said we just need to sort out which players are playing for which team. We can work on it later in the day but right now I think you new boys need to speak to this man, pointing to Alexanko. The Under-19s Manager took his bosses’ idea and got up to leave. I shared a look with Ortiz. It seemed as if it was a case of every man for himself! Alexanko opened up. I’m in charge of continuity here. Staff contracts, player contracts – everyone has to impress me to stay. Everything else is up to you. If you want I can bring bodies in or get rid of people but I’ll level with you: I don’t have time for that. I can talk to the media and maybe even manage your pre-season games while you get your feet under the table but believe me when I say that my job is the senior team, not all the teams. If you were wondering if you can meet with the manager Vitor Pereira or the assistant Luís Miguel then the answer is no. You just work Mestalla.

  19. Playing FM18, and I'm about 12 seasons in (2029), playing as Tromso. Had a bank balance of 130 million because of player sales from a few seasons before. Had been swimming in money for quite a few season at this point when I realized that on the turn of the new year my bank balance had been reset to 0. I had gotten a message that the board had taken out 8 million but other than that I have no idea where this 130 million has gone. Kind of frustrating because I can't even afford coaching licenses for my ex-players and I don't really want to sell my players as I haven't gotten past the QuarterFInals of the Europa League yet. Is this a known bug or is this WAD?
  20. so i recently edit a competition, and the past winners of the competition is not updated. any solution?
  21. Hi everyone!Back here again for my third and final save for fm 2018,the other two (Vaduz/Liechtenstein and FK Tauras/Lithuania) finished for different reasons (motivation,hard-disc change)Anyway i am: From beautifull Greek city Trikala And WELCOME to: MALTA Malta (/ˈmɒltə, ˈmɔːl-/ ( listen); Maltese: [ˈmɐltɐ]), officially known as the Republic of Malta(Maltese: Repubblika ta' Malta), is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.[10] It lies 80 km (50 mi) south of Italy, 284 km (176 mi) east of Tunisia,[11] and 333 km (207 mi) north of Libya.[12] At over 316 km2(122 sq mi),[4] and with a population of just under 450,000,[5] Malta is one of the world's smallest[13][14][15] and most densely populated countries. Malta's capital city is Valletta, which at 0.8 km2, is the smallest national capital in the European Union by area; its largest city and chief economic center is Birkirkara.[16] Malta has two official languages, Malteseand English, with the former also recognized as the national language. Maltese is the only Semitic language to be officially recognized in the European Union. Malta has been inhabited since around 5200 BC. Its location in the middle of the Mediterranean[17] has historically given it great strategic importance as a naval base, with a succession of powers — including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, Knights of St. John, Turkish, French, and British — having contested and ruled the islands.[18] Most of these foreign influences have left some sort of mark on the country's ancient culture. Malta became a British colony in 1815, serving as a critical way station for ships and the headquarters for the British Mediterranean Fleet. It played an important role in the Allied war effort during the Second World War, and was subsequently awarded the George Cross for its bravery in the face of an Axis siege.[19] The George Cross continues to appear on Malta's national flag.[20] Following intense negotiations, the British Parliamentpassed the Malta Independence Act in 1964, giving Malta independence from the United Kingdom as the State of Malta, with Elizabeth II as its head of state and queen.[21] The country became a republic in 1974. It has been a member state of the Commonwealth of Nations and the United Nations since independence, and joined the European Union in 2004; in 2008, it became part of the Eurozone. Malta has a long Christian legacy and its Archdiocese is claimed to be an apostolic seebecause, according to Acts of the Apostles,[22] St Paul was shipwrecked on "Melita", now widely taken to be Malta. Catholicism is the official religion in Malta. Article 40 of the Constitution states that "All persons in Malta shall have full freedom of conscience and enjoy the free exercise of their respective mode of religious worship."[23][24] Malta is a popular tourist destination with its warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum,[25] Valletta,[26] and seven megalithic temples, which are some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world.[27][28][29] And especialy in: BALZAN Balzan (Maltese: Ħal Balzan) is a municipality in the Central Region of Malta, one of the so-called three villages, together with Attard and Lija. The village originally consisted of a group of small dwellings and farms but eventually grew, becoming a parish in the 17th century. As of March 2014 the town has 3,958 inhabitants.[2 ] ANNOUNCEMENT We already had some good and bad reactions... FC BALZAN Balzan Football Club is a Maltese football club from the village of Balzan, which currently plays in the Maltese Premier League. The Club was founded in 1937, and has played top-level football once before in 2003–04.

  22. Hi, Ive played FM for a long time and just want to say thanks for this amazing game. After a year with FM17 i have some small suggestions for the future versions of FM. 1. It should be possible to move players from U19 to the seniorsquad just for a cupgame. Like a button "make available for senior cupmatches". Annoying to move players back and forth from U19 to seniorsquad for 5-10 games each season. 2. A report each month from the U19-chief about which players from the academy who deserves a chance for the a-team / the seniorsquad (which players that is good enough for the main team). This is how it works in real life, i think. 3. Insane transfer-amounts for smaller nations. I understand it with the Premier League, but not for scandinavian countries. For instance: i just bought a player for 140 million from Tromsø FK in Norway. He is 17 years old. In real life, transfers in Norway goes rarely over 2 million euros within the country. 4. Why no women and children in the stadiums? Hehe. And why shouldnt the colours for the away-team be represented at the stadiums? 5. I think it`s to hard to get job offers when you`re already a highrated manager. Ive won the champions league 4 times but stil havent got a job offers from big clubs like Barcelona etc. Again, thanks for a great game. Hope this suggestions make sense for SI and other players.
  23. There is a need for more detailed stats for manager history and team stats. See attachment 1: there should be a stat for how many clean sheets you have kept as manager. There should be a tab where you can see your stat breakdown per club you have been at as well as an overall one. Things such as possession average at a club, players signed per club, money spent per club etc. Attachment 2: For team stats there should be stats for the whole season including all the competitions you are involved in not just the league stats. There should also be a screen where you can see your managerial record compared to another manager. E.g. Jose v Pep stats (wins/losses/goals scored etc) including all previous club stats.
  24. In the footballing world, Pre Season is one of the most important & chaotic periods in a clubs season …. Training camps, enduring transfer saga’s, board meetings and of course the lucrative friendlies to please the commercial partners. In Football Manager, I cant help but feel that Pre Season is no more than a few clicks of the "Continue" button, with the odd player transfer thrown in (should you have enough money) and maybe a week long training camp to Spain which has no real effect on the game itself. Would it be at all possible for the Pre Season madness of the real world to be simulated in the Pre Season world of Football Manager?? Below are some of the ideas I feel would help blend the two worlds together. 1) MID SEASON BOARD MEETINGS TO DISCUSS UPCOMING SUMMER: Board suggest friendlies based on commercial requirements. (We would like to play against either Club A, Club B or Club C in the USA as part of our commercial obligations) Board suggest Training Camp locations based on commercial requirements. (Please select which two weeks you would like to spend in China as a result of our commercial obligations) Pre Season tournaments with added income (We have been invited to play in the X Cup in Australia) *The results of these meetings to be kept in place even if the manager is removed from their position. (a similar situation happened when LVG was unhappy with Man United's pre seasons plans that were put in place by the previous manager/commercial requirements) 2) PRE SEASON INTERVIEWS: Interviews whilst on Training Camps or Pre Season Tours – reflect on upcoming season or latest in-game transfer/football news. 3) TRANSFER IMPROVEMENTS: Clubs transfer activity is often impacted by other clubs Pre Season plans. (Club A has to wait for Club B to return from tour in China before continuing negotiations) Players arriving for medicals! In today's world, players jetting off around the world for a Pre Season/Mid Season medical is big news. (Player X arrives for Club A medical) or (Player X jets in for Club A medical) Would love to hear your thoughts, responses and/or feedback on these suggestions. Regards.
  25. Hello everyone So since I started playing FM I've always installed the logo packs, and I never had any problem with it. Last week i was forced to format my laptop and so i had to re-install my FM 18. My problem is that now i can't install the logos and I do not know why. I've done everything i usually did, i downloaded the logo packs, created a folder called graphics and logos, extracted the files there, reloaded the skin but nothing happens. Also, and I don't know if this is related but every time i start the game, steam says that is executing the first configuration and when the game opens i every time have to agree with the terms. Can anyone help me?
