  4. Hi(again) to everyone in this beautifull forum..After Gibraltar,Liechtenstein,Lithuania and Malta my next managerial experience will be at Spain.Well not exactly at Spain but to a nation with many connections with them,Andorra! ANDORRA LA VELLA (ANDORRA) Andorra is a sovereign landlocked microstateon the Iberian Peninsula, in the eastern Pyrenees, bordered by France in the north and Spain in the south. Believed to have been created by Charlemagne, Andorra was ruled by the Count of Urgell until 988 when it was transferred to the Diocese of Urgell, and the present principality was formed by a charter in 1278. It is known as a principality as it is a diarchy headed by two Co-Princes: the Catholic Bishop of Urgell in Spain and the President of the Republic of France. is the capital of the Principality of Andorra. It is located high in the east Pyrenees, between France and Spain. It is also the name of the parish that surrounds the capital.Andorra la Vella is the capital of the Principality of Andorra. It is located high in the east Pyrenees, between France and Spain. It is also the name of the parish that surrounds the capital.Andorra la Vella (Catalan pronunciation: [ənˈdorə lə ˈβeʎə], Spanish: Andorra la Vieja, French: Andorre-la-Vieille) is the capital of the Principality of Andorra. It is located high in the east Pyrenees, between France and Spain. It is also the name of the parish that surrounds the capital..As of 2015, the city has a population of 22,886, and the urban area, which includes Escaldes-Engordany plus satellite villages, has over 40,000 inhabitants. NATION The Andorra national football team (Catalan: Selecció de futbol d'Andorra) represents Andorra in association football and is controlled by the Andorran Football Federation, the governing body for football in Andorra. The team has enjoyed very little success due to the Principality's tiny population, the fifth smallest of any UEFA country (only Liechtenstein, San Marino, Gibraltar and the Faroe Islands are smaller). *For first time i won't manage their ''senior'' national team but for a change i took Andorra's U21 team control,i think it will be interest.. ANDORRA FC PROFILE utbol Club Andorra is a football club based in Andorra la Vella, Andorra, established in 1942. They play in the Spanish football league system.Most of the Andorra national football team are typically selected from FC Andorra, which currently competes in the Primera Catalana at the 5th level of the Spanish football league system.

  6. Hi everyone. I'm an unpublished author who suffers frequently with writers block, when I suffer with writers block I play football manager (no I've not got through 10 seasons yet!) I'm sat here at work on my night shift yet again unable to coax any words out for my novel. A thought hit me, is there a place where people write about FM, basically can I combine my two passions together (because regaling my wife, friend and in laws regarding my management success does not seem to interest them!) The answer it appears is yes, there aren't just career threads but a fiction forum as well! Fantastic. I intend to keep my fictional writing to my novel so I've chosen this forum to entertain you all with the ups and downs of my management career. I have come to this decision later than is maybe conventional? I am at the start of my 2nd season, but the journey I went on in my first season was so enjoyable (which inspired me to want to write about it) that I will treat you to a trip back through time. This will either get my creative juices flowing and be a roaring success, or turn out to be frustrating procrastination and die in a fire. Is your breath as bated as mine?
  7. Hello guys, this is my time writing about a save and didn't know if I wanted to post this one. But I have just started my fourth season, having alot of fun (and agony) with this save and wanted to share it. Ashton United were founded in 1878 in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester as Hurst Football Club. The Robins play their home matches at Hurst Cross and have just been promoted from the Northern Premier League Premier Division to the National League North, which is the highest in the pyramid Ashton have ever been. As you can see Ashton have never won a single competition in their history, something we look to change, and have the worst facilities a club can have on the game. The next post will detail our first season and once I get caught up I will post updates every two months of game time. Thank you for reading and hope you enjoy!
  8. The Graham Taylor Career Journey Hello and welcome, as I try to emulate the managerial career and footballing philosophy of the former England Manager, Graham Taylor. Taylor at the age of twenty-eight, became the youngest manager ever to be appointed by a club in the Football League, when he took over Lincoln City halfway through the 72/73 season, saved them from relegation, whilst finishing a credible tenth in the old Fourth Division. The previous summer, at twenty-seven, he became the youngest man to become a qualified FA coach, after his own professional football career in the Fourth Division had been cut short prematurely by a hip injury. Graham Taylor had a very clear vision for how his teams should play. It should be a direct, fast paced style of play combined with the high pressing and counter pressing game, combined with lots of shots on the opposition's goal. His vision worked and by the 1975/76 season he had led Lincoln City to the title, setting records along the way for games won (32) and goals scored (111) in a single season. He spent the following season in the Third Division with Lincoln City, finishing 9th, before he got a call from Watford's chairman Elton John offering him to drop down a division and take over the club. After accepting the position, Taylor propelled Watford up the table with three promotions in four seasons and getting them to a F.A cup final at Wembley. He also went on to manage Aston Villa, leading them to second place in the 1st Division, before taking the England job, which ended in failure to qualify for the 94 World Cup in the U.S. So for this save I’ll start unemployed with a National A coaching badge, and a past playing experience of regional level professional footballer. After reading his self-penned autobiography, I also intend to use the high intensity tactics he used throughout his career, and see where it takes me. I also want to get a job in League Two, since this was the division where he started his managerial career. The aim of the save is to get my first team promoted and secured in League One within four seasons. Then try start all over again with a League Two side, achieving three promotions in four seasons with them, and if I can, getting them to a cup final along the way. Another aim is to be offered the England job. In the next post I'll update you on whatever League Two club is willing to hire an inexperienced 29 year old Taylor.
  9. Woking FC - a takeover So my first game on FM19 will be with the team that were just down the road when i grew up. I am a Gooner at heart but Woking is still the first team i saw live in their relative heydays on the mid 90's. The aim here is to take the side from the doldrums of the Vanarama Conference South to the lofty heights of the Premiership. Club History Woking Football Club are a semi-professional side based in Woking, Surrey. Formed in 1889 the club play at the Kingfield Stadium (Named the Laithwaite Community Stadium for sponsorship reasons) and are nicknamed the Cardinals or the Cards. Whichever you prefer. Now in the 6th tier of English football after their relegation last season, the club is looking to rebuild and in the short term get themselves into the league football season for the first time. A feat the club nearly achieved in 1995 and 1996 where they came 2nd two years on the trot just behind Stevenage on both occasions As you can see there is some cup history with 3 FA Trophies to our name coming in 1994, 1995 and 1997 highlighting how dominant Woking were in non-league football at one point. It was during this time that Woking famously took than Premiership side Coventry to an FA Cup 3rd round replay where a last minute goal prevented the tie going to extra time. Finances Finances are especially key in non-league games as you need the money in order to make the jump from semi-professional to professional status. I am pleased to say that the club are in the black and are looking pretty good with £160k in the bank The finances mean we can go and add some new players to the squad with an extra £2k or so per week available to offer to new signings but we will have to make do with no transfer fee budget for the time being. Expectations Having been relegated last season, i was expecting relatively high expectations by the board and i wasn't too wrong as the Board demand we finish in the play-off spots (Top 7) which nicely aligns with the Media's pre-season expectations where they predict us to finish in 7th as well However, as you can see the odds between 2nd and 7th are exactly the same, meaning it will be tight. Relative moneybags Billericay are going to be tough, whilst Welling had a decent squad and Torquay have history of being a League side so shouldn't be underestimated either.
  10. Introduction: The sole purpose of this file is to expand the US/Canadian experience for Football Manager as close to real life as reasonably possible. And if I do say so myself, I believe this file is the most realistic USA expansion for any version of Football Manager. There are a lot of different ways to enjoy this DB file. Take over your local NPSL or USL2 club (like my Emerald Force SC). Start with at the youth level, including the MLS academy teams. Do a Caleb Porter and build a college powerhouse before taking on the professional game. You can even make like Marc Dos Santos and start in one of the Canadian leagues (including the new Canadian Premier League). Or, just start in MLS while the pyramid below helps develop players for your dynasty. Here are the specifics: Major League Soccer: All default rules are still in place (salary cap, allocation money, contract types, All-Star Game, Drafts, etc). In 2019, as by default, FC Cincinnati joins the league (as is the case in real life). Expansion draft still occurs. The big addition here is the 2020 expansion where Beckham's Inter Miami franchise joins the league along with Nashville, as is happening in real life. Some liberty was taken with the Nashville franchise, as they have not announced their branding yet. I simply "promoted" Nashville SC from USL Championship. The teams join the league as normal, however the expansion draft for 2020 does not seem to take place. FM obviously realizes that expansion is happening because it shows on the calendar, however it never actually occurs as it does for the 2019 expansion. It's apparently a hard-coding issue. Also included is the recently announced changes to the playoffs, starting in 2019. Seven teams from each conference now qualify for a chance to win the MLS Cup, up from six. United Soccer League Championship: The league plays in 2018 with the same 33 teams from real life. In 2019, FC Cincinnati leaves the league to join MLS. Penn FC, Richmond Kickers, and Toronto FC II "relegate" to USL One. Austin Bold FC, Birmingham Legion FC, El Paso Locomotive, Hartford Athletic, Loudoun United FC, Memphis 901 FC, and New Mexico United all join the league for the 36 real life teams for 2019. In 2020, Chicago and Oakland join for 38. The 7 expansion clubs can be chose from USL League One at the beginning of the game. United Soccer League One: The league does not schedule any matches in 2018, however you can choose the clubs which do not play in other leagues at the beginning of the game (Chattanooga Red Wolves, Forward Madison, Greenville Triumph, Lansing Ignite, North Texas SC, Orlando City B, and the Rochester Rhinos) It also starts with the 7 expansion teams that join USL in 2019 so you can start with one of them and build the squad. League begins play in 2019. NPSL Pro: Like USL1, it does not schedule any matches for 2018 and begins play in 2019. You can pick Cal United, Cal FC, or Oakland Roots in the beginning. NCAA: All 209 teams and 24 conferences are included. Set up to mimic real life as much as FM will allow. 21 of 24 conferences have tournaments, with all 24 conference champions gaining automatic bids to the NCAA Championship Tournament. Players selected for the MLS Superdraft will come from the NCAA. US Soccer Development Academy: This is where newgens are generated in USA in FM. Activating the division means that the youngsters will get meaningful matches. This league matches real life as much as possible, but in reality the league runs on a fall-spring schedule and FM doesn't allow one division in a nation to run fall-spring if the rest of the leagues run spring-fall. United Soccer League Two: Setup to reflect real life for all 2018-2019 changes. FC Tucson and South Georgia Tormenta play in USL2 in 2018 before joining USL1 in 2019. National Premier Soccer League: Also setup to function in 2018-19 as in real life. Chattanooga FC, Detroit City, Miami FC, Miami United, Milwaukee Torrent, New York Cosmos, FC Arizona, and ASC San Diego all play in NPSL in 2018 before moving to NPSL Pro in 2019. Canada: Includes the new Canadian Premier League, League1 Ontario, PLSQ, Pacific Coast Soccer League, Canadian Soccer League, and the CSL Second Division. Also included are the cups for League1 Ontario and PLSQ. The Canadian Championship is also set to include the CPL champion starting in the second season. ADDITIONAL FILES: Apparently modifying MLS in the editor causes the default CONCACAF Champions League to go haywire, so I rebuilt it. It functions better with the CONCACAF League and CFU Club Championship competitions which I also rebuilt. If you do not include these files with my USA-Canada expansion, the Champions League will not select the proper teams. Also included is a graphics file which contains logos for all American and Canadian teams. It also includes kits for all US teams and the CPL teams. Screenshots: KNOWN ISSUES: -For whatever reason, the expansion draft does not happen for the 2020 or 2021 expansiona. As best as I can tell, this is a hard-coding issue pertaining to MLS expansion. The expansion draft does still occur for FC Cincinnati. -Some NPSL and USL2 clubs won't fill their squads. Some teams will always have only gray players. I've tried different things, but for now there seems to be no way around this. My guess as to why this is the case would be because in FM, clubs in the USA do not develop new players. All new domestic American players come through the Academy system whereas clubs in other countries' have a yearly youth intake. I can't say for sure why some semi-pro clubs don't just go sign free players, but I'd say it's related to the unique US youth system in FM. -NCAA teams will not function exactly as they should in real life. FM sees the teams as amatuer U23 clubs. Their squads are usually automatically populated which I would suppose is because the SuperDraft pulls from them. DISCLAIMER: I have NO idea how this file will mesh with other database files. If you have an issue, by all means report it and I will try to make it compatible but I can make no promises on that. DOWNLOADS: DB Files (place in "Football Manager 2019>editor files" folder): http://www.mediafire.com/file/5ba0a11zvf5p6iw/USA-Canada_Expansion_19-6.rar/file Graphics files (place in "Football Manager 2019>graphics" folder): http://www.mediafire.com/file/b9277idow0icchb/USA-CAN_Expansion_Graphics_2.rar/file CURRENT VERSION OF DB FILE: USA Canada Expansion 2.23 MLS in FM19 Video Guides Part One (League Format): Part Two (Squad Breakdown): Part Three (Player Acquisition): ADDITIONAL FILES ----------MLS Club Continental Competitions CONCACAF in the Copa Sudamericana - CONMEBOL used to invite teams from North America to compete in the Copa Sudamericana. That deal ended when CONCACAF changed the format of the Champions League and started scheduling matches in the fall when the Sudamericana was played. Now that the Champions League has returned to playing all of their matches in the spring, there has been some discussion of allowing North American teams in the Sudamericana again. I remember playing in Sudamericana with the older versions of FM and it was a lot of fun, so I built this file that sends the CONCACAF Champions League winners and runner-up to the Sudamericana. Pan-Pacific Championship - This revives a now-defunct preseason friendly competition that used to pit the champions of MLS Cup against the champions of Australia, Japan, and South Korea in a one-leg knockout competition. There is a third place match so two matches are guaranteed. International Champions Cup - This recreates the summer friendly competition that is played mostly in the United States in real life. This version plays the entire competition in the US and adds the MLS Supporters Shield champion as well as the Libertadores champion, who has been invited in the past. DOWNLOAD LINK: http://www.mediafire.com/file/5kb0kovavl9k1lb/MLS_Continental_Comps.rar/file ----------Central American & Caribbean Leagues This file adds the national leagues for Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico. These are actually updates on claasen's files from the past (so I will remove them if he so wishes but he has apparently taken a break from the scene and did not update these himself so I went ahead and did it). I added these to increase the MLS playing experience by adding some continental leagues and expand the player pool for acquisitions. Also included is the Central American Club championship competition. There are also files for the Champions League and CONCACAF league that adjust how teams are drawn from Costa Rica. The CCL and CL in this file are different from the versions included with the MLS download so you will need to remove those and add these files if you intend on running Costa Rica DOWNLOAD LINK: http://www.mediafire.com/file/3881pz6akm2i24m/Central_America_Comps.rar/file ----------International Competitions These files add some international competitions to enhance the North American experience. Like all of the others, you can pick and choose which ones you want. USA January Camp - When I managed the US national team it always bugged me that I couldn't schedule friendlies in January because in real life they hold a camp for the domestic players (and guys who play in Spring-Fall leagues like Scandinavia). So I created this file to add the camp. The US will play two matches against nations chosen randomly from a list of countries that have played against in January in the past. Pan American Games - This is a real life youth competition for U22 teams from North and South America. It helps to prepare the national team programs for Olympic Qualifying. Central American & Caribbean Games - Real life U21 competition for Latin American national teams (No USA or Canada) Central American Games - U20 Championship for the 7 Central American Nations: Copa Nuevo Mundo - In 2016 the USA hosted the Copa America. After the tournament was a huge success, there was talk about creating a new competition held every four years for the top national teams from CONCACAF and CONMEBOL. This is is that competition. I call it the Copa Nuevo Mundo (Cup of the New World). It consists of 16 teams (8 from CONCACAF, 8 from CONMEBOL) held every four years in the United States.

    We've all heard of it, most have tried it, but not many manage to complete it. The San Marino challenge is one of FM's longest and hardest challenges and I'm back for another crack at it. Currently posting in @rycl77 challenge thread but have made this thread as I want to go into more detail with my posts. The aim is to turn San Marino Calcio into Serie A and Champions League winners, and to also win the World Cup with San Marino national side and take them to Number 1 in the world. As the save progresses I will also be aiming to lead all the youth sides (u19s, u21s) to glory aswel. I also have the San Marino domestic division loaded as a playable nation. The aim is once ive established the club side in Serie A, to then add a second manager in charge of a side in San Marino and try to develop the domestic game. Youth products are tagged for example yp19a. 19 being the year of the intake, and A being the highest rated player from said intake.
  12. Currently managing Southampton & England U21. When I go into my national pool, the ability column is empty for most players, assuming this is because it is taking the club scouting reports not national. They have all been scouted by my national pool but they don't show up unless I go into the player profile. This is very frustrating when I am trying to pick my team, I just let the England assistant do it (I have no U21 Assistant as it is very hard to sign someone for the job). I cannot attach the game file as it is too large. As from the Screenshot all the abilities are Unknown, then I go into a players profile and go in to the national report section and its there. How do I get the national reports to show up consistently in National Pool.
  13. I flirted with the idea of starting a career in India with the Indian Arrows which I thought might have made for an interesting build a nation type save but owing to issues with league reputations in Asia I've decided to have another try in N. Ireland. I was also encouraged to start in N. Ireland due to the massive developments which have happened over the last year which I feel will really help in building the standard of football in the nation. Having a tycoon owned Larne & newly professional Crusaders will prove very helpful and hopefully, before too long, we might start to see a domino effect of clubs improving and turning professional which should make my task of building the nation easier. Game Setup I've gone with a large database with all international players having been added. I decided to load up all the leagues from the UK & Ireland in addition to having the top divisions from the best 5 nations in Europe which I hope will provide a good challenge. I had to use the editor to make some slight alterations to the database in order to have a working reserve and youth league system with generic formats being added. Outside of that I also added club and competition badges which are provided in the megapack from fmscout.com. Manager Attributes I made my avatar as poor as possible with an emphasis on the determination attribute which I hope will make the board more forthcoming when it comes to granting requests. Due to ticking the 'Prevent control of teams with managers in place' box I'll be starting unemployed and will have to wait until a vacancy opens. So what club decided to give me my start in management? I have to admit to being a bit surprised by this in that I didn't really have to do much to get the job. I applied purely speculatively but they don't appear to be a very ambitious board by allowing a complete rookie to take the reigns. Provided I can get the club into the top half they'll be happy and all I needed to do was to agree to the philosophy to sign young players which is pretty much my playstyle anyway. As they have gone out on a limb by hiring me I will be doing everything I can to repay that faith. History A team with an illustrious history filled with massive success with the club having won an impressive 137 domestic trophies since their foundation in 1882. Recent times have however been comparatively barren with their last competition win being in 2015 with the Irish Cup and their last top-flight win coming in 2009. They are the 2nd most decorated team in N. Irish football behind their deadly rivals Linfield. They hold the highest attendance for any club to have played in N. Ireland with a massive 42,000 spectators watching their clash with Rangers back in 1966. Their record in European competitions hasn't been very good with them never having made a group stage in their history but they do have a famous quarter final appearance in the Cup Winners Cup in 1974 which ended in defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach. They have on occasion managed to give some comparative European giants a bloody nose such as the 1-1 draw in 1966 with Rangers in the Cup Winners Cup with the next season bringing 2 draws with Benfica in the European Cup which is quite impressive given that Benfica went all the way to the final that year. They have even managed a 1-0 victory in the first leg against Arsenal in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1969 which was especially impressive given that the Gunners eventually went on to win the competition. Modern times have however been less glorious with quick eliminations often as a result of heavy aggregate defeats. The financial situation has also become increasingly problematic in recent times which has led to crumbling infrastructure and a lack of investment. They have the potential to be a great club but really need money to turn around their fortunes and start to rebuild the club. Trophies Won Club There are some encouraging aspects to the club. The number of rivals should help boost attendances should I be able to bring a level of success to the club. The reputation of the club is among the best in the country which is also a nice boost as it should make finding players that would be willing to play for us easier. I am a bit unsure about the personality of the squad as loyalty isn't something that is critical at this point as I seek to turn the club into a selling one. Facilities Long gone are the days in which the club could fill the stadium with over 40,000 people. The lack of investment is clear to see here with a lot of work needed to bring the facilities even up to a standard which would be good for the DBP. Hopefully, I can take a page out of @smp20's book and try to get an affiliation with Queen's University to share their great training facilities as that would be a neat little solution to this problem. There are some positives though as the stadium potential expansion capacity is 10,000 so at least we should get a nice big new stadium if we can bring a bit of success to the club in Europe. In addition, being located in Belfast should prove very helpful in building the fan base. Squad Positives - We have some quality players for the DBP with Curtis Allen ST considered a star player for the level. He is also considered by the coaches to be consistent and a big game player which is excellent especially for a striker. There are also a number of high potential young players who I'm hoping to develop. Negatives - A lack of defenders is troubling given that I want to play 4 at the back. There is also no players in either the Reserves or U18s which look anywhere near being ready for 1st team football. Our main GK Elliott is getting on a bit which is not a big problem except for the fact that my coaches think is declining as a footballer which means he'll need to be replaced sooner rather than later. Finances Two very bad things here. We are over our wage budget which means that we are going to need to sell before we can buy. The club is also quite poor which means no ability to invest and even less likelihood of the board deciding to increase budgets. At least the true extent of Glentoran's financial situation isn't there as they hold no debt in game. Starting Conditions We still have a good chance of making the top 6 if we can get the ball rolling quickly which should be possible as my first game in charge is away at Newry City. It gets a lot more tricky after that however with an away trip to Windsor Park to face Linfield followed by a home game against Crusaders. A baptism of fire for sure but if we can get through those games with a positive set of results I will be feeling more optimistic about meeting the target of a top 6 finish. Career Objectives The ultimate aim of my time at the club will be to become dominant domestically, win the Champions League and build a sustainable wealthy club to act as an engine for other teams in N. Ireland. This will be a save where I could be moving clubs as I did in FM18 as I seek to build the league into a top European competition. It could be a long journey, let us begin.

  15. Welcome back to the thread of the only French team who almost won Europa League !! History and glory days... Olympique de Marseille was founded by René Dufaure de Montmirail, a French sports official, in 1892 as an omnisport club. Known as Sporting Club, US Phocéenne and Football Club de Marseille in the first five years after their foundation, the club adopted the name Olympique de Marseille in 1899 in honour of the anniversary of Marseille's founding by Greeks from Phocaea some 25 centuries earlier, with the name Olympique, coming from ancient Olympic Games. The first period of Olympique de Marseille's domination of the French League started in the early 1970s under Marcel Leclerc's presidency (1965–1972). His ambition allowed Marseille to return to the First division in 1965–66. They went on to win the Coupe de France in 1969 as well as the First division in 1971 with a record of 44 goals by Josip Skoblar, helped by Roger Magnusson. The arrival of Georges Carnus and Bernard Bosquier from Saint-Étienne helped them to win the Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France in 1972. Marseille played in the European Cup in 1971–72 and 1972–73, but were knocked-out by Ajax of Johan Cruyff and Juventus, respectively. However, success was not to last. Marcel Leclerc was forced to leave the club on 19 July 1972. The President was a stubborn man, and he threatened the whole league by threatening to withdraw his professional team from Ligue 1 because the federation refused to accept three foreign players in one team (Leclerc wanted to acquire the Hungarian star Zoltán Varga but he had already the maximum number of two foreigners in his team). But Marseille decided, instead of following Leclerc against the league, to fire him.[4] Then followed an era of crisis, with Marseille only winning a Coupe de France in 1976 and being relegated to the second division, where they played with a bunch of young local players: the Minots who allowed the team to return to First division in 1984. Éric Di Meco was one of them. On 12 April 1986, Bernard Tapie became president, thanks to Marseille mayor Gaston Defferre, and promptly built the greatest team ever seen in France. His first signings were Karl-Heinz Forster and Alain Giresse, who were bought after the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Tapie signed a large number of highly regarded players over the next few years in his pursuit of the European Cup, such as Jean-Pierre Papin, Chris Waddle, Klaus Allofs, Enzo Francescoli, Abedi Pelé, Didier Deschamps, Basile Boli, Marcel Desailly, Rudi Völler and Eric Cantona as well as appointing high-profile coaches like Franz Beckenbauer, Gérard Gili and Raymond Goethals. Between 1989 and 1992, Olympique de Marseille won four league titles in a row and the French Cup. The highlight of the club's history is winning the new format Champions League in 1993. Basile Boli scored the only goal against Italy's Milan in the final held in Munich's Olympic Stadium. That triumph was the first time ever for a French club and it made Didier Deschamps and Fabien Barthez the youngest captain and goalkeeper, respectively, to capture the title. This triumph, however, was followed by a decade of decline. In 1994, due to financial irregularities and a match fixing scandal involving then president Bernard Tapie, they suffered enforced relegation to the second division, where Marseille stayed two years before returning to the First division. Moreover, they lost their 1992–93 Division 1 title and the right to play in the UEFA Champions League 1993-94, the 1993 European Super Cup and the 1993 Intercontinental Cup. Marseille returned to the top flight in 1996 with backing from Adidas's owner Robert Louis-Dreyfus. He chose Rolland Courbis as coach, signed Fabrizio Ravanelli, Laurent Blanc, and Andreas Köpke, and Marseille finished 11th for his return. For the 1998–99 season, the team celebrated their centenary and built a team of stars: Robert Pirès, Florian Maurice, and Christophe Dugarry, culminating in a second-place finish in the French championship, behind Bordeaux and an appearance in the UEFA Cup Final in 1999, losing to Parma. Courbis left the team in November 1999 after a poor start to the season. The closest Marseille got to another trophy was when they reached the UEFA Cup Final in 2004, impressively beating Dnipro, Internazionale, Liverpool, and Newcastle United along the way. But they were beaten in the final by newly crowned Spanish champions Valencia and once again fans were forced to continue waiting for the next trophy to come along. In 2005, Marseille succeeded in winning the Intertoto Cup, beating the likes of Lazio and Deportivo de La Coruña in doing so, and earning another shot at the UEFA Cup. The club struggled in the 2011–12 season, going to the bottom of the Ligue 1 table after six matches. Nevertheless, Marseille rebounded, winning 3–0 against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, as well as a 3–0 success over rivals PSG in November of that year. Marseille ended 2011 with a good sequence, also qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League for the second season running. In February 2012, Marseille embarked on 13 games without victory, but rallied to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since winning the competition in 1993. Despite an indifferent club form, OM lost to eventual finalists Bayern Munich, and slumped to an overall tenth-place finish in Ligue 1. However, the club retained the Coupe de la Ligue for the third year running, beating Lyon 1–0 in the Final. In the summer of 2012, Deschamps resigned, and later taking on the France job. Elie Baup took over, leading the club to a surprising second-place finish in the 2012–13 season despite selling multiple key players, including Loïc Rémy, César Azpilicueta and Stéphane Mbia. Marseille returned to the Champions League, spending close to €40 million on the likes of Dimitri Payet, Florian Thauvin and Giannelli Imbula. The club were top of the table at the end of August 2013, but OM proceeded to lose all six games in Europe, suffering the ignominy of becoming the first French team, and the biggest European team to date, to have picked up zero points in a Champions League group stage. Baup was sacked on 7 December 2013, following the 1–0 defeat to Nantes at Stade Velodrome. He was replaced on an interim basis by Jose Anigo. In Anigo's brief tenure, OM went out of the two cups, and struggled, leading to continued protests and jeers by fans. The club finished sixth in the 2014 season, missing out on an important European competition place for the first time in ten years. Anigo left the club soon after, taking on an ambassadorial/scouting role in North Africa, his first post outside of the city for more than four decades. Modern days... We had a tough time with Margarita Louis Dreyfus last days at the club... No money to spend, selling our top players every year, no trophies on our shelves A new era has come with american new owner Frank Mccourt, who definitely wants to give Marseille a boost in order to be successful again which is the club D.N.A !! Stadium If you take in charge Marseille you will discover the wonderful Stade Velodrome, fully renovated in 2014, you now have a breath taking place of 67.000 fans which are going to help you to win ! It's obviously the biggest stadium available for a French Ligue 1 team so far, but you will have to be good enough to fill all the empty seats that the stadium used to have in the last years...and Marseille fans are really tough to convince so be smart ! Your facilities are also excellent, and will need few improvements OM CHAMPIONS PROJECT Marseille just got a new boss Mr Franck McCourt, american bilionnaire, which already came with his ideas and a project "OM CHAMPIONS PROJECT" The aim for him is to be on the top 3 in the league, which means in France, Champions League football, In order to achieve these goals Marseille's boss pumped some significant money last winter bringing back home Payet and some young bolld like Sanson for more than 40M€, which was a huge improvment for the squad The backroom staff had been improved as well with the likes of Zubizareta joining the club as D.O.F New boss and new President all together SEASON 2017/2018 Unexpected and cruel, Marseille reached an European Final after an incredible run with some epic games and atmosphere https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1CeuEqvVZA Rivals As you are a playing a successful club, you'll obviously have plenty of rivals, in the south of France you'll have derbies against AS Monaco and OGCN, but the main thing is Paris Saint Germain !! That's the game you MUST not lose ! You can also add Olympique Lyonnais, rivalry on and off the pitch had been brutal as hell last year, it's may be even more important to beat Lyon than PSG now ! Would you stop our 17 18 games streak without a single victory against PSG in any competitions ?? Would you be able to bring back Champions League football in Marseille instead of watching Lyon on Tv ? Kit Why Marseille ? Because you will be lucky enough to manage 3 World Cup Winners !! Because this team requires a skilled manager to take the club to another level !! Because your last victory against PSG was in 2011 !! Because you have to stop PSG dominance and Lyon provocations !! Because your stadium is the most beautiful and noisy in Ligue 1 !! Because the challenge is huge in France as you have top teams around and you're a sleeping giant !! Because your DNA is to bring back another European Trophy on our shelves !! ALLEZ L'OM
  16. I'm trying to download an add-on to the game, but the add-on won't load. Usually, the add-on appears in the 'editor data' folder in the FM19-folder, as a .fmf file. But for some reason now it doesn't. And it is not only with this particular add-on I'm having problems with. I have been having problems with the downloading add-ons from Steam ever since I got Football Manager 2019. It's been completely fine playing previous versions. 18, 17, 16 and so on... but with 19, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This is getting really frustrating because I need this add-on to enjoy the game properly. If someone could help me with this problem, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

  18. The Youth Factory Cesena This career update is created as apart of the Youth Academy Challenge link too it can be found here. I post updates there too but will do more detailed ones here. Because of said challenge I follow the rules of it, and too give a short summary. The most important thing you would need too know is the fact I am not allowed too do any transfers in. Outside the yearly youth recruitment of course. I am free too do transfers out of the club. As apart of the setup I simulated a year too get a previously unplayable club into the Lega Pro A/B/C stages of the Italian league (3rd level). My choice of these clubs as you might have guessed by now was Cesena. Furthermore the Challenge asks you to start without former experience or badges making my manager look rather useless as the picture below will illustrate. Spoiler below contains seasonal short summary
  19. Nexus Classic Skins for FM19 and FMT19 Details: New Dark Green Colour Scheme for FM & FMT New Fonts ("Lato" - SIL Open License Font) Removal of background fade effect and return to old style titlebar - this meant some minor changes to some panels. Should be relatively usable with other panel mods. Instructions in readme for FMT for how to change attribute box colours if you want to.

  20. Hey, I've bought FM19 a couple of days ago and started downloading some League Packs, Real Name Fixes und Logo Packs. It all went fine until I've tried to install a face pack with a ton of faces. I deleted the cache and tried to reload the skin as suggested but then the game crashed and I couldn't get it started again. ("The game quit unexpectedly" - think you know that therm here already) :-( After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to fix it (Reinstalling the game, deleting the cache folder etc.) I just removed the Sports Interactive Folder and started the game again. And again: All went fine. I've added the league packs and so on again. Including the 170.whatever faces. Reloaded the skin and it crashed again. Now I've removed the Sports Interactive Folder a couple of times and started all over again (even without the faces) but it always crashes after reloading the skins. Don't know what I did wrong. Were that too many faces? But why doesn't it work without them after I started again? Hope I could it explain it understandable. Here are some of my computer details: I've already read a lot of other threads but no one could successfully help me :-( Looking forward to some expert tips. It's the first time I'm playing FM19.
  21. He may not have come forward as the secret footballer publicly, but there's no escaping that he's venturing into management! One of my all-time favourite Cambridge United players is my new persona for my latest thread. David Barry Kitson, or Big Dave'll do. Set up with realistic attributes with a solid base to build on. He believes in developing young local players, but would rather leave the backroom staff to deal with them! This is the basis of the club I love. After settling in League 2 for 3 seasons after a long stint in non-league, we're now looking to build on it and push up the league. However the budget isn't there and key players of previous years haven't been replaced - Uche Ikpezu and Luke Berry! I'm going to going into full detail within the save myself, no IRing, plug and play and I will be looking to develop the crop of youngsters we currently have. Next update will be after the pre-season!
  22. US Palermo – Looking For Stability February 2017 should have mark the end of an era in Palermo when Maurizio Zamparini stepped down as chairman of Palermo after 15 years in charge with over 40 managerial changes. It was first announced he had agreed to sell his controlling stake to an unspecified Anglo-American fund. But the takeover eventually collapsed after the necessary funds were not in place and Palermo ended the season in 19th place, being relegated to Serie B. The instability continued the next season and probably cost Palermo an immediate promotion back to the top flight. For the 2018/2019 Serie B season, Palermo even found themselves forced to sell a number of players due to financial issues, with Antonino La Gumina sold to Empoli and Igor Coronado to Sharjah FC. This is where I come in or more precisely Giuseppe Iachini, a former player midfielder for Palermo who also coached them two times between 2013 and 2016. During his tenure, he won his personal fourth top flight promotion, guiding Palermo to be crowned Serie B champions five matches before the end of season. The goal will obviously be to repeat this achievement but also to simply survive Zamparini’s madness.
  23. The Save: It's a journeyman save which will probably take me right the way through FM19. I start at Cork City and try to build my way up the top. Like my previous thread, I'll mix career updates with narrative. I've been playing FM since FM16 but I've only every played as Top 6 or mid-table teams in the top leagues of Europe. Now if I was being smart about this, I'd: A: Try and manage at a lower level club to give myself some experience before diving into the deep end to manage a 2 star reputation team. B. Try a test save so I can get the hang of FM19. But **** it, I'm diving right in. The Club: To start off with, I'm going to be playing as Cork City FC. They play in the SSE Airtricity League, the top tier of Irish football. They're defending champions and so the challenge would be to retain the title (a task Cork City failed to do in real life, relinquishing the title to competitive rivals Dundalk) and to do well in Europe and build my reputation before leaving. By Irish standards, doing well in Europe would be making the group stages of either of the two European competitions as Dundalk did a couple of year ago. Here's the stadium, Turner's Cross: The crest: And the mascot, Corky the cheetah: And now for the most important part, the manager! Tony Cochrane: As I've said earlier, there'll plenty of narrative to this save so you'll be seeing Tony a lot. A Cork native, he played for Cork City FC from age 18 to 27 at which point he suffered a career ending injury. He got his coaching badges at 30 and, after doing nothing with his life for the past four years, has decided to go into management. If anyone's interested, here's the league setup I have to start.
  24. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ledley King is MISSING from the game. Is he perhaps incorrectly named?
