  1. FM20 Base Skin with Background Support Following on from the discussion in this thread Figured it was popular enough for its own thread. The following skin adds support for custom backgrounds on Football Manager 2020. Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/jbawc7jgjw3xgtj/Base_Skin_with_Background_Support.7z/file If you release a skin using this mod, you must credit @bluestillidie00 for the base skin.
  2. Back in the old FM versions (pre-FM16) there were five Steam achievements which always interested me. The aim is simple, take over a team in the bottom tier of the five nations above and get them to the top tier. Easy right? So my save for FM20 will be this, and a little bit more. My objective is to not only get a team promoted to the top tier but to also win the Top League of each nation with that team. All of this will be in the one save universe, this may take some time! I have always admired what @Makoto Nakamurahas done, he plays quick which is just how I like to play. Sorry if I rip off your style!! My manager, suitably named Bonnie Tyler after singing the song who's lyrics are in the title of this thread, will start Unemployed with Sunday league reputation and no coaching badges. Wish me luck!
  3. Coming soon... ... Stuniverse's FM20 Adventure... The adventure begins on Tuesday 19th November 2019...
  4. London Calling Obviously FM 20 isn't out yet and no I dont have some sort of advanced copy...although if one was offered I wouldn't turn it down....hint hint hint.... Anyway I'm that excited for the new game that I couldn't wait to get my thread up and running. My saves are typically Journeymen saves in weird and wonderful places. I don't normally like sticking around because that potentially exposes myself as the fraud I am. This save is going to be different. Much different. Although it will still have some Journeyman aspects. The goal is very simple.... I want to turn the English Premier League into the London Premier League. At the start of the 19/20 season there are 20 teams from London in the playables leagues of Football Manager. These teams are (according to Wikipedia)... Premier League Arsenal Chelsea Crystal Palace Tottenham Hotspur West Ham United Championship Brentford Charlton Athletic Fulham Millwall Queens Park Rangers League One AFC Wimbledon League Two Leyton Orient National League Barnet Bromley Dagenham and Redbridge Sutton United National League South Dulwich Hamlet Hampton and Richmond Borough Wealdstone Welling United Obviously teams can be promoted from the 7th tier and become playable. The rules are minimal. 1) Start with no Past Experience or Badges. 2) Take charge of the team predicted to do the worst in the National League South 3) I can only take charge of a team in London 4) The save is completed when the Premier League consists of 20 teams all based in London. In order to complete this challenge I'm going to need to help and give help to teams in London. This will be via parent/feeder clubs. The best thing is, the save is 1/4 complete without me even lifting a finger! I'm planning on this being the only save I do in FM 20. I will be open at some point to taking charge of more than 1 club and will always value feedback and imput from everybody. So thats it. That's my plan. Thats my thread...only thing we can do now is wait..........
  5. Introduction 2019 has already been a big year for Tottenham. They moved into there new state of the art 62,214 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they reached there first UEFA Champions League final where they finished Runners Up to Liverpool. Off the field they also have signed some players for the first time in 18 months. The foundations are now in place and even Mauricio Potchettino has said that the club needs to start a new chapter. Are you the man or woman to do this on FM20? Facilities * Training Ground - State of the Art * Youth Facilities - State of the Art * Data Analysis Facilities - State of the Art * Junior Coaching - Good * Junior Recruitment - Good Board Expectations The Squad Goalkeepers: #1 - Hugo Lloris (Captain) #22 - Paulo Gazzaniga #13 - Michel Vorm #41 Alfie Whiteman Defenders: #3 - Danny Rose #4 - Toby Alderweireld #5 - Jan Vertonghen #6 - Davinson Sanchez #16 - Kyle Walker-Peters #19 - Ryan Sessegnon #21 - Juan Foyth #24 - Serge Aurier #33 - Ben Davies #39 - Japhet Tanganga Midfielders: #8 - Harry Winks #12 - Victor Wanyama #15 - Eric Dier #17 - Moussa Sissoko #18 - Giovani Lo Celso #20 - Dele Alli #23 - Christian Eriksen #28 - Tanguy N'Dombele #29 - Oliver Skipp Forwards: #7 - Heung-Min Son #10 - Harry Kane (Vice Captain) #11 - Erik Lamela #27 - Lucas Moura #52 - Troy Parrott #TBC - Jack Clarke - Out on Loan Squad Notes: Key players Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Eriksen all have contracts expiring in June 2020 so you need to decide whether to try and resign them to longer deals or wether to cash in on them. Alderweireld does have a £25m release clause that expires after 25/07/19 and it is possible to sell him for more after this date. There are some good young players with decent potential in the squad with the likes of Sessegnon (19), Sanchez (23), Foyth (21), Walker-Peters (22), Winks (23), N'Dombele (22), Skipp (18), Dele (23), Lo Celso (23), Parrott (17). You also have Jack Clarke who is on loan at Leeds United in the 19/20 season. Lo Celso is on loan at the club but you are able to buy him on a permanent deal for £36.8m. Supporter Expectations Tottenham have not won a trophy since the 2008 Carabao Cup and this is something that the supporters do not feel happy about. They have lost 8 FA Cup Semi-Finals in a row since 1993. They reached there maiden UEFA Champions League final but lost out to Liverpool. They last won the league in 1961 and in the Premier League Era there highest league position has been 2nd (2016/2017 season). Can you be the man to finally lead them to some long awaited success?
  6. I used this last season & now this, it's been tweaked a few times. Last season with the team I have, I should have probably performed better in the PL given the team I've put together with a Tycoon Owner. I can see there's probably a problem, playing without Wingers or an AM & setting up the way I am. From the results so far, while we're harder to break down(more often than not) scoring goals has been a problem. What problems do you see & tweaks you'd make? I like the idea of 3 Strikers, but would be willing to change to 2 or even 1 if it works better.

  10. New FM, new thread Have you found a gem of a regen from an obscure country that you have never heard of, got him capped and feel proud? Want to get your regen rated as you feel that he is the best regen ever? Maybe you want some advice on your regen, how to play him, what should you train him on? There is no specific format to follow, just post up a screenshot of your regen! If you need to, also along with your screenshot you could have a bit of background information about him, like where you got him, how much you paid or anything similiar. If you don't know what a newgen is, then here is a short explanation: A randomly generated player that the game throws out to compensate for retirements etc... This is so you don't end up with no players in the game after you have played for a long enough time for all real players to retire from the game. These can normally be identified by the 'Newgen face' which looks like a computer generated face, although these can be turned off, so don't dismiss someone's player due to the lack of face. Please, only post newgens in here. Feel free to tell us about how good they are, how you found them, what you paid, their goalscoring records etc. Also, feel free to comment on other peoples newgens! Although, don't be the dick that goes 'OMG U EDITED HIM', because at the end of the day, it's just a game, people shouldn't post edited players, but if they do it's not a massive deal.
  11. Hi all, Started unemployed and took the Barnsley job. Newly promoted to the championship and predicted for a relegation scrap. The squad is pretty poor, but managed to get some good youth prospects in through the loan market and a couple of purchases (and a 41 year old Lucio on a free transfer!). Tactic was going ok through pre-season but then got spanked by Fulham in my first game. That has led to lots of tweaking with not much results, a couple of scraped wins but other than that just playing pretty poorly. I'm really interested in how you all would approach a save like this. I have some good young talent up front, midfield is ok, defense and keeper pretty poor. Below is my starting tactic - any initial thoughts? Am thinking of dropping 'play out of defense' so we go a bit more direct, and drop the defensive line a bit? Any help much appreciated!
  12. EVERTON FOOTBALL CLUB Introduction - Why play as Everton?:- Why play as the blue side of Liverpool? Because you want to usurp the Reds as the top Liverpudlian team in the Premier League. In real life the Toffees are languishing down near the bottom of the table with current manager Marco Silva under a lot of pressure with many people expecting him to be on his way out the door. Much life in real life, Everton often underperform in FM20. With a decent squad to build on, albeit with some players that need to be moved on, Everton are a team that have always just been "there" and not quite good enough to crack the top 6 of the Premier League. History:- Everton's history is rich with the club being founded in 1878. They currently hold the record for competing in the top division of English football an incredible 116 season, only missing out 4 times since The Football League was created in 1888. The team has a long and storied rivalry with Liverpool with the clashes against the Reds known as the Merseyside Derby. The club hasn't won any silverware since 1995 when they won the FA Cup and the FA Charity Shield. Everton have won the league a total of 10 times (9 First Division titles and 1 Second Division title) with their most recent being in the 1986/1987 season. Everton are a club with a rich history with their most notable managers being Howard Kendall, who led them to their Division 1 wins in the 80's, and in more recent times David Moyes who led the side from 2002 until 2013 when he departed for a stint at Manchester United that would only last 10 months before his sacking after he replaced football royalty Sir Alex Ferguson. Since Moyes left the club the team has dropped down the Premier League table to become a mid-table club finishing as low as 11th. Prior to this the club was often up amongst the big dogs of the Premier League including a 4th place finish in 2004/2005. Flash-forward into the present and the club are currently sitting near the bottom of the Premier League. Having lost the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ademola Lookman, and Idrissa Gueye in the recent transfer history, the club is struggling despite several big name signings. In fact, Everton spent a whopping £111M in the off-season to bring in the likes of Alex Iwobi, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Moise Kean and André Gomes with French right-back Djibril Sidibé also joining on loan. It is this underperformance after large investment that sees Marco Silva currently hanging on to his job by a thread. - Everton Football Club 2019/2020 Season:- Home Ground: Goodison Park (Capacity: 39,572) Training Facilities: Finch Farm, Liverpool -Suberb training facilities -Superb data analysis facilities -Superb youth facilities -Good academy coaching -Excellent youth recruitment Media Prediction: 7th Transfer Budget: £10M Wage Budget: £2,344,184 p/w (£101K p/w available) Season Thoughts:- The club has several requirements to fulfil. Firstly it desires to build a new stadium in the next 5 years, which they will handle themselves. Next they require you to work within the wage budget, which is fair enough as it is fairly hefty for a team that has no European football. You are required to finish in the top half of the Premier League this season and at the end of the 2020/2021 season you are required to be recognised as the 'best of the rest'. Beyond that they expect you to continue being recognised as the 'best of the rest'. The board desires that you play entertaining football and for you to reach the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, both things seem doable at first glance. They would like it if you reached the Fourth Round of the Carabao Cup, however this is not as important. As you can see their long term ambitions are not really too farfetched. They basically want the team to rise back to where they were under David Moyes. But this is FM, we can do better than that. -
  13. Barnsley FC Profit Over Points! Well here we go again another year and yet another new challenge for Barnsley in Football Manager, it seems like no two years are the same. 2 years ago I was writing a similar yet (as you will find out), a more positive prologue than this year’s and when you consider we were relegated that season it tells you pretty much all you need to know about the current situation at the Barnsley. So not to bore you with all the Barnsley backstory which some people won't be particularly interested in, I'll keep the reasons why you should manage Barnsley on FM 20 short but sweet, Barnsley have an exceptionally young squad with an average age of 22.6 according to transfermarkt, there is undoubtedly a lot of potential in this young squad but unfortunately you'll only have 2 Championship quality players at your disposal, a distinct lack of experience and leadership will keep your squad dynamics interesting for sure. Profit is the bottom line at Barnsley and any offers you do receive for your players should be considered greatly and the introduction of the new “Club vision” to FM will make your challenge even harder, realistic and more rewarding should you succeed in staving off relegation. If you're looking for a real challenge in the English second division then this is the biggest of them all! A relegation at the end of the 2017/18 season leads us directly to last season. The 2018/19 season began with the appointment of German head coach Daniel Stendel, who became an immediate hit with the fans after a 4-0 opening day win against Oxford United. His passion and high pressing style were akin to Jurgen Klopp, who you’ll all be well aware of. Our early season form left us going into the January transfer window in 4th place, with a huge chance to claim a top two spot by the end of the season. However instead of investment into the team to give us the little push that would surely give us an outstanding chance for promotion what did the board decide was best? Well obviously it was to sell one of our best players in Brad Potts, which I accept had to happen given the interest from Championship Preston and I believe most of the fans accept this is what we are. However the part which was a little confusing was the decision to sell, an impact sub in George Moncur who specialised in turning up for 45 minutes a season namely against Peterborough, to Luton Town who at the time sat in the automatic promotion places themselves, selling to promotion rivals at such a pivotal point in the season was a real indicator for the motivations of the board, which are now more than clear as I write this. January left a somewhat of a sour taste in the mouth, with many fans wondering whether we'd been sold short of promotion by the board, with a string of seemingly odd signings, such as Jordan Green and an even more strange addition in George Miller from Middlesbrough who at the time was having a hapless loan period at Bradford, where he would stay for the rest of the season. These signings added little to nothing to the squad and overall left us in a weaker position than we were before. Fortunately no thanks to any investment from the board, we managed to squeeze over the line with a depleted squad and pip Sunderland and Portsmouth to 2nd spot behind Luton. With promotion back to the Championship secured at the first attempt most fans were happy to give the owners their backing, despite some worrying signs from the January transfer window and support them fully going into the all important summer, ahead of what would surely be a tough Championship campaign. However many people's suspicions about the boards real intentions were realised with the loss of key players such as Adam Davies, Liam Lindsay and Ethan Pinnock. These three players had formed the heart of the best defence in League 1, ripping this defence has turned out to be complete suicide leaving us miles short of quality at the back. Without doubt however the most controversial exit from Oakwell this summer was the sale of last seasons top scorer Kieffer Moore to Wigan for between £2-4 million. Now selling to a potential relegation rival in Wigan is something we have previous in if you remember. There have been various rumours around Moore's departure, with some suggesting he wasn't wanted by then Daniel Stendel or that he'd become a disruptive member of the squad in a bid to pursue his move to Wigan, however the “replacement” for Moore is somewhat of a joke in all honesty. Patrick Schmidt came to Oakwell from Austrian side Admira Wacker for considerably less than was brought in from the sale of Moore. I feel sorry for Schmidt he's barely had a kick for us this season and if he can't get in this side I doubt he's even up to much at League 1 level let alone Championship. There is undoubtedly a massive rift between the board and fans, can you succeed in the Championship, under the new owners model? But enough talking, hopefully I've convinced you Barnsley is the save for you on FM 20 or at least you'll stick around to see how I fair this year. Thanks for reading.
  14. Football Manager 2020 Base Skins Note: These base skins are for the full game, not Touch. * Credit to @michaeltmurrayuk for the original post. Editing Fonts FM 2020 has seen more changes to skinning than usual, the biggest being a new format for fonts, changing from *.xml to *.fontxml, Luckily old files work and just need renaming. You can do this by opening a Command Prompt in this folder and running the command. ren *.xml *.fontxml .fontxml files can be edited in any text editor, and we've included all the relevant files for ease of use. To change the actual font, just copy your font of choice to the folder, and edit the fontxml files to match your new font. Editing Font and Skin Colours Font colors and skin graphic colors are generally controlled by the settings.xml file in the settings folder. Colors use the following format value="rgb(75,180,240) ", with 75 representing red, 180 representing green and 240 representing blue. You can use any image editor like Paint.Net to Photoshop to get the correct RGB codes then add them to your setting file. It's worth noting that the settings file priorities code in a descending order, meaning if you have two entries for one variable in the same settings file, the one that is higher up will be used. Generally to avoid any potential conflicts though it is worth commenting out any unused code (This can be done by surrounding the unused code with <!-- (CODE) --> Its also worth remembering some items are hard-coded meaning they can't be changed, others are in individual panels, and some are set in the fonts folder. Colours in the fonts and panels folder are prioritized over the settings file. For your changes to take affect Once you've finished making your changes to your skin, you’ll need to go into the Preferences -> Advanced --> Interface Menu and untick ‘Use caching to decrease page loading times’ if it is ticked and then tick ‘Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences’ then click confirm and your changes should be applied, if you have previousily ticked and unticked the required boxes a 'Reload Skin' button should appear in the bottom left corner, if this button appears you can click that if the Confirm Button is grayed out. Installation Instructions: For convenience sake, this year we've packed all three skins together, just extract the skin of your choice to your Skins folder and select it in game Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/7q4rq0wxd9fre55/FM20_Base_Skins_v20.1.7z/file Base Skin with Background Support:

  16. The Football Manager 2020 skin in Dark & Purple version with the DF11 player profile and several other tweaks. The original post is from mrkeysirensie.wordpress.com. The main idea, same as in the previous years, was to create simple skin based on default skin but with some small changes. I was able to remove many useless and not needed small panels as default skin has no issue with the secondary color and the title bar height this year. That means I was able to make the skin even more simple and cleaner. ____________________________________ Same as in the previous years, this is mainly my own skin and I’m happy with how it works right now. There will be no adjustments and edits just because of feature requests. Save your time and energy before you will want to edit something. The default skins and panels etc. are available to download and everyone is able to learn and make his own custom skin. There are many guides and useful tips and hints around the internet, mainly on SI Forum. If you don’t like something, don’t use this skin and don’t ask why this, this or this is not included in the skin or if I will add it. This is the only one version I will release for FM20 (except some critical issues). ____________________________________ Manager Home Screen Player Profile with the main aim to use DF11 facepack and make it cleaner thanks to removing one line of small widgets Player Comparison Screen Mentoring – Add player panel adjusted with custom view to make it easier to set up the mentoring groups Human (your manager) profile Non-player profile Club Overview Match: In-Between highlights, full time review & post match review Competition Review Screen – League Table adjusted with more info/columns Stadium(s) Overview Screen – edited slightly to be able to see the stadium picture and basic info.

  19. WATFORD FOOTBALL CLUB Introduction - Why play as Watford?:- The 2019/2020 season has gotten off to a horrendous start for Watford with them sacking manager Quique Sánchez Flores after his second stint in charge of the club lasted only a matter of months. As such, the club represents a good challenge for players in FM. Watford definitely possess good players, however they also carry a lot of dead weight, which I'll touch on later. Being owned by the Pozzo's they have first rights on any player being sold from Udinese and also have a very, very large squad of players with many of them out on loan. The challenge for the player lies within being able to move the older players on, retain younger players that are actually good, recruit new younger players AND keep within budget whilst trying to finish in the mid-table of the Premier League. With a weak squad it is definitely a challenge, however as I will outline later on it is not impossible. First some history on the Hornets, though since you will be taking charge of the club feel free to ignore the part about this season under Javi Gracia and Quique Sánchez Flores. History:- The Watford Football Club was founded in 1898 with the amalgamation of West Herts and Watford St. Mary's, though the club recognises its founding as 1881. Watford joined the Football League in 1920 and after moving around they finally settled into a home at Vicarage Road in 1922. Perhaps Watford's most notable period was during Graham Taylor's 10 year managerial stint from 1977 to 1987 that saw the club rise from the Fourth to the First Division, even finishing second in the league in 1982/1983 which led to the Hornets competing int he UEFA Cup the following season. Watford also lost 2-0 to Everton in the 1984 FA Cup Final. After Taylor left the club they fell down to the Second Division (now the 3rd tier of football with the creation of the Premier League) before Taylor returned for a second stint from 1997 until his retirement in 2001 which saw the club secure back to back promotions after winning the Second Division in 1997/1998 and winning the First Division play-offs in 1998/1999. Watford only lasted in the Premier League for a single season, however, with the club finished on the bottom of the table. Taylor stayed on for one more season before he retired and was replaced by Gianluca Vialli. During the Italian's time at the club wage bills rose dramatically - especially for a club who were languishing in the mid-table of the First Division. Vialli only lasted a season, largely in part to the aforementioned wage issues leading to disputes with the club's board and was replaced by Ray Lewington. Watford faced administration in 2002/2003 as their financial situation was precarious to say the least. Players and staff agreed to a wage deferral to help the club's cash flow and reaching the FA Cup semi-final provided some much needed funds. The financial constraints were too much, however, with a large number of players released in the summer. The 2003/2004 season saw the Hornets finish 16th with a much weaker squad and the following season started promising with the team initially in the upper half of the (now renamed) Championship. Poor form came to the club and they dropped to the relegation zone leading to Lewington's sacking in March of 2005. Aidy Boothroyd succeeded him and led the club out of the relegation zone ending the season in 18th. The next season was a complete turn around as Boothroyd led Watford to finish 3rd, defeating Leeds United 3-0 in the play-offs to gain promotion to the Premier League once again. While Watford managed to reach the Fa Cup semi-finals again, they also finished bottom of the league winning only 5 games. Boothroyd continued with the club until a few months into the 2008/2009 season when he left the club by mutual consent with Watford sitting 21st in the Championship table. Irishman Brendan Rodgers had a brief cameo appearance as manager leading the team to 13th on the table before departing to Reading at the end of the season. Malky Mackay then took charge. Watford continued to struggle financially and once again came close to administration. Mackay left to manage Cardiff City in June 2011 after achieving nothing of note. His replacement Sean Dyche led Watford to their highest league position in 4 years but was controversially dismissed in July 2012 and replaced by former Italian international and Chelsea icon Gianfranco Zola following the Pozzo family's purchase of the club. With financial woes behind them Watford managed to finish 3rd in the Championship in 2012/2013, losing in the play-off final to Crystal Palace 1-0. The next season Zola was replaced by Giuseppe Sannino and finished in 13th. Sannino resigned before the new season and was replaced by Óscar García who shortly after resigned for health reasons. Billy McKinlay was the next man in charge and despite getting 4 points out of 6 under his leadership he was replaced just 8 days into his tenure by Serbian Slaviša Jokanović. Under Jokanović Watford won promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2014/2015 season finishing 2nd in the Championship. Oddly Jokanović's contract was not renewed by Watford and he was replaced by Spaniard Quique Sánchez Flores. In their first season back in the top flight they finished 13th and reached the FA Cup semi-finals again. Towards the end of the season Sánchez Flores utilised a clause in his contract that allowed him to break his contract as he felt that he and the owners did not share the same point of view about the season. Italian Walter Mazzarri signed next. The following season Watford just beat the drop finishing 17th with Mazzarri resigning after just a single season in charge. He was replaced by Marco Silva who in turn was sacked six months later and replaced by Javi Gracia in January 2018. Gracia was sacked on the 7th of September 2019, replaced by the returning Sánchez Flores, who in turn was sacked on the 1st of December 2019 with the club on the bottom of the Premier League tale. During the Pozzo's ownership of the team significant money has been spent with Vicarage Road's main stand being demolished and replaced by the new Sir Elton John Stand. The Pozzo's also own Udinese Calcio in the Italian Serie A and owned Spanish La Liga side Granada CF until June 2016. This allowed for a lot of freedom of movement of players between all three clubs and allowed Watford to have more players on their books who were loaned out to further their development, and in some cases seek work permits. - Watford Football Club 2019/2020 Season:- Home Ground: Vicarage Road (Capacity: 21,250) Training Facilities: London Colney, St. Albans -Suberb training facilities -Excellent data analysis facilities -Great youth facilities -Adequate academy coaching -Good youth recruitment Media Prediction: 11th Transfer Budget: £15M Wage Budget: £1,251,238 p/w (£41.18K p/w available) - Season Thoughts:- As you can see above the board expects you to finish in the mid-table which is something that should be easily doable. They also expect the team to reach the FA Cup Fifth Round, the Carabao Cup Fourth Round and next season to finish in the top half of the table, with the following years to work towards being recognised as 'the best of the rest'. The board also requires you to work within your wage budget and desires the signing of young players to develop for profit, which is something that Watford are doing in real life. In addition they would prefer if you do not sign players over the age of 32, desire you to sign players under the age of 23 that are first team ready, and desire you to sign players under the age of 21 for the future. All of these are achievable. £15M in the transfer budget is a tidy sum which can be added to by further player sales, something I'll touch on more later. The wage budget only has around £40K p/w spare which in the Premier League is not a lot, so again shifting high earners that aren't worth it is a huge priority. -
  20. Season 0: Episode: 0 The Boring Part Where We Talk about the Fiddly Bits Club “If you can’t learn to do it well, at least learn to enjoy doing it badly.”—despair.com Welcome to Devotion to Promotion! In these digital boxes I’ll be posting my FM20 adventures as Zilla Blitz, an inexperienced 20-year nobody who has decided to enter the world of football management rather than attempt to, you know, actually play football himself. I’ll start off with no coaching badges, no job, and a smattering of Sunday League playing experience. With this haughty resume, I’ll thrust myself on the football world, grovel for any job I can get, and have a grand old time managing teams in the British Isles. Wait, will there be a challenge of sorts? Why yes, two challenges in fact. I will aim to start my first job in the spring of 2020 with a newly promoted Vanarama South or North team and take that one team to the top of the football world. Doing so would qualify me for the Dafuge Challenge. Given my recent success with FM19, however, I can say with all confidence that my odds of achieving the Dafuge Challenge are slim at best. So when that turns out badly, I’ll shift my career into an attempt to clear the British and Irish Steel Challenge, which aims to win the 50 leagues and competitions available to Irish, Northern Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and British teams, using only players of British or Irish nationality. You might be thinking, “Wait, isn’t that even harder than a Dafuge Challenge?” To answer that, I’d say, “Yes.” I’d also point out that I have not claimed to be intelligent. Onward! However, my priority is fun, so if the official challenges get tedious, my life will morph into a pure journeyman adventure through Europe, questing with interesting teams in interesting places, and living the life of a wandering manager. Will any house rules govern your career? I’m glad you asked, because there are a few. I’m not interested in false greatness, and feel that stories with ups and downs are more interesting than stories of just up. To that, I’m not looking for any advantages. Attribute masking is on, of course. I won’t be downloading killer tactics, no editing the database, no watching videos to learn of hidden wonderkids, no save scumming to get better results. In short, what happens happens, and if that means I spend 20 years stuck in the Vanarama South League, so be it. I hear the bars are pretty good at some of those clubs. How often will you be posting? In addition to managing digital football players, I’ve got a real job and real family, so I’ll be moving at a modest pace. The goal is shortly daily updates five days a week, each update covering roughly a month of one season. That’ll be 10 updates to a season, 2 seasons played in a month of real world time. That’s a pace I think I can keep up. Anything else to know? If you want even more than a quick read, I’m creating Let's Play videos for the career and will post details as the episodes come out. What’s next? Waiting for the official release on Tuesday. Fingers crossed that the next update will have my career underway with job offers from some newly promoted teams in the Vanarama regional leagues.
  21. Training Planner FM20 v1.5 spreadsheet (dropbox link, excel sheet, no macros) @FMathlete (Blog Here) did the initial version of this spreadsheet for FM19, he has given permission for me to share it here. I have updated it for the added modules in FM20. I've also added some "tweaks", which maybe used or ignored as you wish. Please note the disclaimer at the top of the Read Me page: This workbook was prepared independently of SI and FM. It is entirely my own interpretation of how I understand the training modules to work and i could very well be completely wrong! I am continuing to test it's success and will make adjustments to the maths as I learn more about the true impact of training sessions on player attributes. Please feel free to use the data as you see fit, and share your comments or suggestions for improvements with the community. Here is the current list of updates and features tweaks. Current updates: Added Bravery Attribute Added Attacking Overlap Added Defend from the Front Added Play from the Back Current tweaks: User Input page: You can now enter your League Reputation (0-5 stars) for a baseline training regime guide of intensity. You can now enter your squad's average attributes for Natural Fitness, Stamina, Work Rate, and Determination for a custom training regime guideline. (These attributes have been selected because they seem most applicable to the visible traits to how hard you can push your squad in training, disregards personalities) You can select up to 10 CORE DNA attributes. These will be highlighted on the Tactical Planner page for your convenience. Tactical Planner page: Added a Type for each DAY's training regime. This will quickly show the training intensity level (should be comparable to the ingame intensity) as well as the Tactical Periodization training type. Added a scale for intensity colors and a definition section for the Tactical Periodization terminology. Along with brief suggested usage. As noted above, the Core DNA attributes you have selected will be highlighted in the table. Read Me page: Moved notes around. Added change log Added To Do list
  22. Currently doing a Sunderland save, have 4 players away on International duty and wasn't given the option to postpone the game for the 1st break. Unless the amount of players needed to be away has gone up I think this might be a glitch.
  23. This megapack will activate all top divisions and most lower divisions currently in the existing database. Most leagues that have information will be relatively accurate, however keep in mind that i'm only working with the basic rules. Expect a good time, just no miracles. Everything should work up to 2030 according to the pre-game editor. No 100% guarantees. League list: Downloads: Have fun! Any bug reports and weird situations can be reported freely. You may edit these further if you wish- though of course uploading these under your name is not cool and you should not do that.
  24. Hi, How to edit homegrown rules for the Uefa Champions League? I want to change this limit. Thanks
  25. And another journey begins.. COACH COUNTRY Faroe Islands The Faroe Islands (/ˈfɛəroʊ/; Faroese: Føroyar, pronounced [ˈfœɹjaɹ]; Danish: Færøerne, pronounced [ˈfæɐ̯øːˀɐnə]), or the Faeroe Islands, is a North Atlantic archipelago located 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-northwest of Scotland, and about halfway between Norway and Iceland. It is an autonomous territory[8] within the Kingdom of Denmark. The islands have a total area of about 1,400 square kilometres (540 sq mi) with a population of 51,783 as of June 2019.[3] The terrain is rugged; the climate is subpolar oceanic climate (Cfc)—windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. Temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream. As a result of the moderation and the northerly latitude, summers normally hover around 12 °C (54 °F). Average temperatures are 5 °C (41 °F) in winter.[9] The northerly latitude also results in perpetual civil twilight during summer nights and very short winter days. Between 1035 and 1814 the Faroes were part of the Kingdom of Norway, which was in a personal union with Denmark from 1450. In 1814 the Treaty of Kiel transferred Norway to the king of Sweden, on the winning side of the Napoleonic wars, whereas the king of Denmark, on the losing side, retained the Faroes, along with the two other historical Norwegian island possessions in the North Atlantic: Greenland and Iceland. The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing part of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948.[10] The Faroese control most of their domestic affairs. Those that remain the responsibility of Denmark include military defence, policing and the justice department, currency, and foreign affairs.[11] However, as they are not part of the same customs area as Denmark, the Faroe Islands have an independent trade policy and can establish trade agreements with other states. The islands also have representation in the Nordic Council as members of the Danish delegation. The Faroe Islands have their own national teams competing in certain sports. Archaeological evidence shows settlers living on the Faroe Islands in two successive periods before the Norse arrived, the first between 300 and 600 AD and the second between 600 and 800 AD.[15] Scientists from the University of Aberdeen have also found early cereal pollen from domesticated plants, which further suggests people may have lived on the islands before the Vikings arrived.[16] Archaeologist Mike Church noted that Dicuil (see below) mentioned what may have been the Faroes. He also suggested that the people living there might have been from Ireland, Scotland, or Scandinavia, possibly with groups from all three areas settling there.[17] A Latin account of a voyage made by Brendan, an Irish monastic saint who lived around 484–578, includes a description of insulae (islands) resembling the Faroe Islands. This association, however, is far from conclusive in its description.[18] Dicuil, an Irish monk of the early 9th century, wrote a more definite account. In his geographical work De mensura orbis terrae he claimed he had reliable information of heremitae ex nostra Scotia ("hermits from our land of Ireland/Scotland") who had lived on the northerly islands of Britain for almost a hundred years until the arrival of Norse pirates.[19] Norsemen settled the islands c. 800, bringing Old West Norse, which evolved into the modern Faroese language. According to Icelandic sagas such as Færeyjar Saga, one of the best known men in the island was Tróndur í Gøtu, a descendant of Scandinavian chiefs who had settled in Dublin, Ireland. Tróndur led the battle against Sigmund Brestursson, the Norwegian monarchy and the Norwegian church. The Faroe Islands as seen by the Breton navigator Yves-Joseph de Kerguelen-Trémarec in 1767 The Norse and Norse–Gael settlers probably did not come directly from Scandinavia, but rather from Norse communities surrounding the Irish Sea, Northern Isles and Outer Hebrides of Scotland, including the Shetland and Orkney islands. A traditional name for the islands in Irish, Na Scigirí, possibly refers to the (Eyja-)Skeggjar "(Island-)Beards", a nickname given to island dwellers. According to the Færeyinga saga, more emigrants left Norway who did not approve of the monarchy of Harald Fairhair (ruled c. 872 to 930). These people settled the Faroes around the end of the 9th century.[20] Early in the 11th century, Sigmundur Brestisson (961–1005) – whose clan had flourished in the southern islands before invaders from the northern islands almost exterminated it – escaped to Norway. He was sent back to take possession of the islands for Olaf Tryggvason, King of Norway from 995 to 1000. Sigmundur introduced Christianity, forcing Tróndur í Gøtu to convert or face beheading and, though Sigmundur was subsequently murdered, Norwegian taxation was upheld. Norwegian control of the Faroes continued until 1814, although, when the Kingdom of Norway (872–1397) entered the Kalmar Union with Denmark, it gradually resulted in Danish control of the islands. The Reformation with Protestant Evangelical Lutheranism and Reformed reached the Faroes in 1538. When the union between Denmark and Norway dissolved as a result of the Treaty of Kiel in 1814, Denmark retained possession of the Faroe Islands; Norway itself was joined in a union with Sweden. Following the turmoil caused by the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815) in 1816, the Faroe Islands became a county in the Danish Kingdom.[21] As part of Mercantilism, Denmark maintained a monopoly over trade with the Faroe Islands and forbade their inhabitants trading with others (e.g. the geographically close Britain). The trade monopoly in the Faroe Islands was abolished in 1856, after which the area developed as a modern fishing nation with its own fishing fleet. The national awakening from 1888 initially arose from a struggle to maintain the Faroese language and was thus culturally oriented, but after 1906 it became more political with the foundation of political parties of the Faroe Islands. In the first year of World War II, on 12 April 1940, British troops occupied the Faroe Islands, shortly after the Operation Weserübung with the Nazi German invasion of Denmark on 9 April 1940. In 1942–1943 the British Royal Engineers, under the leadership of Lt. Col. William Law MC, built the only airport in the Faroe Islands, Vágar Airport. Control of the islands reverted to Denmark following the war, but Danish rule had been undermined, and Iceland's independence served as a precedent for many Faroese. The 1946 Faroese independence referendum resulted in 50.73% in favor of independence to 49.27% against.[22] The Faroe Islands subsequently declared independence on 18 September 1946; however, this declaration was annulled by Denmark on 20 September on the grounds that a majority of the Faroese voters had not supported independence and King Christian X of Denmark dissolved the Faroese Løgting on 24 September.[23][24] The dissolution of the Løgting was on 8 November followed by the Faroese parliamentary election of 1946 in which the parties in favour of full independence received a total of 5,396 votes while the parties against received a total of 7,488 votes.[25] As a reaction to the growing self-government and independence movements, Denmark finally granted the Faroe Islands home-rule with a high degree of local autonomy on 30 March 1948.[23] In 1973 the Faroe Islands declined to join Denmark in entering the European Economic Community (later absorbed into the European Union). The islands experienced considerable economic difficulties following the collapse of the fishing industry in the early 1990s, but have since made efforts to diversify the economy. Since then, support for independence has grown and is the objective of the Republican Party. Geography[edit] Main article: Geography of the Faroe Islands Satellite image of the Faroe Islands The Faroe Islands are an island group consisting of 18 major islands (and a total of 779 islands, islets, and skerries) about 655 kilometres (407 mi) off the coast of Northern Europe, between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, about halfway between Iceland and Norway, the closest neighbours being the Northern Isles and the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Its coordinates are 62°00′N 06°47′W. Distance from the Faroe Islands to: Rona, Scotland (uninhabited): 260 kilometres (160 mi) Shetland (Foula), Scotland: 285 kilometres (177 mi) Orkney (Westray), Scotland: 300 kilometres (190 mi) Scotland (mainland): 320 kilometres (200 mi) Iceland: 450 kilometres (280 mi) Ireland: 670 kilometres (420 mi) Norway: 670 kilometres (420 mi) Denmark: 990 kilometres (620 mi) The islands cover an area of 1,399 square kilometres (540 sq. mi) and have small lakes and rivers, but no major ones. There are 1,117 kilometres (694 mi) of coastline.[26] The only significant uninhabited island is Lítla Dímun. The islands are rugged and rocky with some low peaks; the coasts are mostly cliffs. The highest point is Slættaratindur in northern Eysturoy, 882 metres (2,894 ft) above sea level. The Faroe Islands are made up of a approximately 6 kilometers thick succession of mostly basaltic lava which was part of the great North Atlantic Igneous Province during the Paleogene period.[27] The lavas were erupted during the opening of the North Atlantic ocean, which begun about 60 million years ago, and what is today the Faroe Islands was then attached to Greenland.[28][29] The lavas are underlain by circa 30 km of unidentified ancient continental crust.[30][31] Climate[edit] See also: Geography of the Faroe Islands § Climate Skipanes on Eysturoy, with different weather in the distance The climate is classed as subpolar oceanic climate according to the Köppen climate classification: Cfc, with areas having a tundra climate, especially in the mountains, although some coastal or low-lying areas can have very mild-winter versions of a tundra climate. The overall character of the islands' climate is influenced by the strong warming influence of the Atlantic Ocean, which produces the North Atlantic Current. This, together with the remoteness of any source of landmass-induced warm or cold airflows, ensures that winters are mild (mean temperature 3.0 to 4.0 °C or 37 to 39 °F) while summers are cool (mean temperature 9.5 to 10.5 °C or 49 to 51 °F). The islands are windy, cloudy and cool throughout the year with an average of 210 rainy or snowy days per year. The islands lie in the path of depressions moving northeast, making strong winds and heavy rain possible at all times of the year. Sunny days are rare and overcast days are common. Hurricane Faith struck the Faroe Islands on 5 September 1966 with sustained winds over 100 mph (160 km/h) and only then did the storm cease to be a tropical system.[32] An October evening on Eysturoy The climate varies greatly over small distances, due to the altitude, ocean currents, topography and winds. Precipitation varies considerably throughout the archipelago. In some highland areas, snow cover can last for months with snowfalls possible for the greater part of the year (on the highest peaks, summer snowfall is by no means rare), while in some sheltered coastal locations, several years pass without any snowfall whatsoever. Tórshavn receives frosts more often than other areas just a short distance to the south. Snow is also seen at a much higher frequency than on outlying islands nearby. The area receives on average 49 frosts a year.[33] The collection of meteorological data on the Faroe Islands began in 1867.[34] Winter recording began in 1891, and the warmest winter occurred in 2016–17 with an average temperature of 6.1 °C (43 °F).[35] Why Faroe?Because i haven't managed never a club there. CITY Leirvík Leirvík (Danish: Lervig) is a town on the Faroe Islands and was an important regional ferry harbour at the east coast of the second-largest island Eysturoy. Leirvík has 925 inhabitants (January 1, 2017). It was the only town in the municipality of Leirvík (Leirvíkar kommuna), however on 1 January 2009, it merged with Gøtu kommuna to make the new municipality called Eysturkommuna. Leirvík is important for its fishing industry. The Norðoyatunnilin, a submarine tunnel to Klaksvík to the east, was opened in April 2006. CLUB Víkingur Gøta Víkingur is a professional football club in the Faroe Islands. The club was founded in 2008 after the merger of GÍ Gøta and Leirvík ÍF.[1] The club is based in Leirvík, while the stadium is in Norðragøta. Both villages are part of the same municipality Eysturkommuna, located on the island of Eysturoy and about 5 kilometers away from each other. The club won the Faroese championship for the first time in the 2016 season.[2]. In the 2017 season, Vikingur won the championship again. Víkingur was founded on January 14, 2008 with the merger of first division GÍ Gøta and second division club Leirvík ÍF First contacts for a merger of the two clubs date back to 2006, but only in summer 2007 drafts for a merger started. January 14, 2008 in front of 180 members in Leirvik the merger was decided with the temporary name of a combination of the previous clubs: GÍ/LÍF. Finally, February 4, the new name Víkingur was announced, as the best choice out of 18 name proposals. [3] Víkingur debuted in the Vodafonedeildin on 31 March 2008, the first match was a meeting at home against B68 Toftir, Víkingur won the match 4–1. It was a mixed season for them, one of the highest points of the season was a 5–0 win at B71 Sandoy. They finished their debut season in a respectable 5th place. They went out of the Faroe Islands Cup at the first hurdle, the match against 07 Vestur was 1–1 after extra time and lost 4–2 in a Penalty shoot-out. In the 2009 season Víkingur finished 3rd in the league, three points ahead of NSÍ Runavík. In the Faroese Cup, they recorded a 5–0 win in the first round against MB Midvagur, in quarter-final Víkingur knocked out HB Torshavn defeating them 2–1. The cup run continued when they defeated ÍF over two legs, 1–0 away and 5–0 at home. Their opponents in the final were EB/Streymur, Víkingur were winning 2–1 in the second half against favourites EB/Streymur, when Finnur Justinussen scored with 3 minutes to go, to seal the win. EB managed to score a goal minutes later, but the match finished 3–2 and Víkingur won the trophy.[4] The success of the 2009 season meant Víkingur would get to play in the Europa League in the following season and play against the Faroese league winners in the Faroe Islands Super Cup. The match was against 20 time league champions HB Torshavn, on 14 March 2010. Víkingur lost the match 2–1 and missed out on their second piece of silverware. Víkingur were drawn against Turkish giants Beşiktaş, in the Europa League second qualifying round. Unsurprisingly Víkingur were beaten 3–0 in the first leg, at the BJK İnönü Stadium. The home leg didn't go any better and lost the match 4–0. In 2010 Víkingur made it to the semi-finals of the Faroese Cup, but missed out on a place in the final for a second year running after being beaten by rivals ÍF Fuglafjørður over two legs. In the league they finished the 2010 season in 5th place, narrowly missing out on a place in Europe. Víkingur's final match was at home against ÍF and a draw would have been enough for a place in the top 4, but they lost 3–1, finishing the season behind ÍF level on points and level on goal difference. Víkingur finished 3rd in the 2011 league season, and were knocked out in the quarterfinals of the Faroese Cup against B68 Toftir, 4–2 on penalties after a 2–2 draw. The team played in UEFA Europa League for 2012–13 season, but was eliminated in the first qualifying round by Gomel of Belarus. In 2012, they were 5th in the league, but won the Cup for the 2nd time in its history. In 2013, the team lost the Super Cup and achieved their worst position in league, finishing 6th, but won the Cup once again, for the 3rd time and the 3rd against EB/Streymur, starting a little cup rivalry. That year they eliminated FC Inter Turku of Finland, winning the second leg away 1–0 and 2–1 on aggregate. In 2014 they won the Super Cup and the Faroese Cup, both against HB Tórshavn, and finished 3rd in Effodeildin. But the great success of the season was reach the 3rd qualifying round of UEFA Europa League, when they eliminated FC Daugava of Latvia and Tromsø of Norway, being knocked out by Rijeka of Croatia.
