  1. FM19 All-European (Less England) Small Club to Big Club Challenge Introduction Welcome to a new season of the ‘Euro Nation’ Challenge, born out of the recent history of the highly successful Gundo’s Challenge and the Big Euro Nation Challenge that spawned out of it. After a steady start on FM18 hopefully with FM19 we will see a continuation of it's steady start and have another strong season. The premise of the challenge is simple, to start with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to winning the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, providing a great atmosphere and stories for our users to become immersed in. General Challenge Info Possible Countries · Austria · Belarus · Belgium · Bulgaria · Croatia · Czech Republic · Denmark · Finland · France · Germany · Greece · Holland * · Hungary · Iceland · Ireland * · Israel · Italy · N. Ireland · Norway · Poland · Portugal · Romania · Russia · Scotland · Serbia · Slovakia · Slovenia · Spain · Sweden · Switzerland · Turkey · Ukraine · Wales * Holiday for two seasons not one. The Rules A) Game Set-up 1) Load One Nation Only (All Available Divisions within your nation) 2) Your choice of Database Size (Large Recommended) 3) NO Edited Databases of any kind 4) Customising Database You can add players to the database up to a limit of 100,000 in total in order to add more depth to your save and also add more difficulty down the line. Suggested Adds Players from Top Clubs/Top Divisions (Europe or All Continents) - This increases the challenge at Continental Level Players Based in your Nation - This can add up to 50% more players to your game Players Based in your Region (Central Europe/East Europe/UK & Ireland) - This can add extra players likely to join your club There will be a file correcting the club/competition names, I will advise use of this. NO other additional customising is allowed. 5) Attribute Masking should be Enabled 6) Disable Ingame Editor (Please do this) 7) Optional Ticks Add Key Staff (This will give you a Scout, Physio & Ass Man by generating them if your club is without) Add Players in Playable Nations (This will ensure all clubs have a minimum number of players, generating them if needed) The extra levels of detail that you can change while in the game are up to you, as they shouldn't make a difference. B) Steps in the Game 1) Add an unemployed manager; you will not use this man to manage your club. I like "Unemployed Man or Holiday Man" 2) Go on holiday until the reset date of your chosen nation (Should take about an hour) TIP - Changing Detail Level to None will make it go faster. (Remember to change it back afterwards) TIP - Saving on the day before this date may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this. 3) Add a new manager - Use yourself, or a created character to help build a story line a) Personal Details - Your Choice b) Tracksuit vs. Trainer - Your Choice c) Past Experience lowest Possible (Generally Sunday League) d) Coaching Licenses lowest Possible (None) e) Other options are up to you TIP - If you add the language of your country of choice it will make it easier at the beginning TIP - Training now includes you at some level depending on your abilities. 4) Choose to take over any club which has been promoted to the bottom playable league of your nation. TIP - Easiest way in FM17 to see this is on the "Season Review" screen, showing the "Promoted Clubs" TIP - You can confirm your club by checking the Domestic History's page for not being at this level since start of game 5) Retire your unemployed manager. 6) Manage your club to National Title & European Champions League Victory 7) Completing the Challenge. C) Signing of Players 1) You must be able to scout them TIP - You don't actually have to scout them, just be able to TIP - You can check your scouting range on the Scouting page 2) Alternatively (If you can't scout them), you must bring them on a trial first 3) You are able to sign anyone sent to you via Agent Offer TIP - Make sure you screenshot the Agent offer 4) In later versions you can get your DoF to find players, he will bring in players not in Scouting Range, these are also allowed. TIP - Grab a screenshot of your DoF signing them D) Posting 1) Player naming is allowed. (This is a warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) 2) Discussion of tactics is allowed. (This is another warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) Expected Updates We have minimum expectations when it comes to a first up post and also in the end of season updates. The Bold pages are necessary for everyone; the others are some suggestions that will get others interested in your posts and following your club. All other screenshots are welcome and encouraged, but we please ask that the majority are posted as links, because lots of pictures can make the page very slow to load. First Post: Domestic Leagues History (Club) Profile (Manager) Overview (Club) Squad (Club) End of Season Updates: Transfers (Club) - This is so we can see the ins & outs League Table (Competition) Squad (Club) Information (Manager) Profile (Manager) Information (Club) Profile (Players) Progress of your club should be documented using this thread; we want to hear the story of your club all the way through. Please keep us updated, even if you are doing badly. If you title your end of season report in bold this makes it easier to identify. Everyone will be supportive, and really get into your game if you give more detail. E) Other 1. If you are Sacked 1. You can Restart from the beginning or; 2. Continue your game and pick a new club (Under Same Rules) at the end of the next season or; 3. Add another Euro League/Remove Current League, holiday a whole season and continue 1. You can still only have one nation running at a time 2. Once the league becomes active you MUST holiday a full season 3. The club must be one of those unplayable from the beginning 2. No Restrictions on Parent or Feeder Clubs 3. International Management allowed from FM14 forwards (But you cannot start as an International Manager) The use of any external utilities and editors (Such as Genie Scout or FMM) are prohibited. As of FM14 there are also unlockables, these are also prohibited, please don't use them. It would be appreciated if you also ticked the box at the start which prevents the use of the ingame editor. How to Post a Screenshot 1) While in FM, press the 'Prt Sc' button (usually next to F12 on your keyboard). 2) Open an image editing program such as Paint and paste the image 3) Save the file as a JPEG or PNG 4) Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket or Imageshack 5) Post the direct URL to the image here. Alternatively using ALT + F9 in game saves a screenshot to your user data folder. (You can also edit this in the shortcuts options) The Euro Nation Motivational I would like to thank all of you who choose to participate in this thread this year, and to wish everyone taking on this challenge the best of luck on a long and hard journey to managerial success! I have personally had a number of hugely enjoyable saves over the years, first in Gundos challenge and then latterly in the Big Euro Nation Challenge. The atmosphere and support these threads have historically offered is key in making the thread, and your saves more enjoyable as I can testify to. I and some of the other regulars of these threads are here to help for the new challengers and hope everybody that participates contributes considerably to the thread. There is nothing better than getting immersed not only in your own game but providing the encouragement to other people's attempts too. Remember we are all fighting the same battle - to defeat the AI (and uncover fabulous newgens!) - Therefore it goes without saying that any form of cheating will be severely chastised. Don't do it! I know that it is painful to lose a European Final or to lose the title on the final day (I have been there myself on more than one occasion) but eventual success down the line is all the sweeter for those defeats. Good luck to all the participants – Here’s to a successful (and enjoyable) version!!
  2. Ok so i thought i'd start a Bundesliga thread! With the addition of the Bundesliga in this years FM I'm aboslutely loving managing Schalke 04 the proper way thiis time! What Bundesliga team are you managing?
  3. FM18 All-European (Less England) Small Club to Big Club Challenge Introduction Welcome to a new chapter in the history of the ‘Euro Nation’ Challenge, born out of the recent history of the highly successful Gundo’s Challenge and the Big Euro Nation Challenge that spawned out of it. Originally set up as an alternative to the hugely successful Dafuges Challenge for FM06, Gundos Challenge offered an alternative for people who wanted to play in another European country. The Big Euro Nation Challenge followed for FM08 and, like Gundo’s Challenge, has had some fantastic stories over the years. These threads have always been hugely popular and successful thanks to those who played, and who still take part, in the challenges. Some of the stories are legendary, and hopefully more of these will be born in this, and future, versions of the game. The premise of the challenge is the same, and simple, to start with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to winning the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, providing a great atmosphere and stories for our users to become immersed in.

  4. Ich bin so froh, dass es endlich den FOOTBALL MANAGER in Deutschland gibt. Ich spiele das Spiel seit 2014 und glaube das die 2019 einen großen Schritt voran machen wird. Vom Gefühl her wurde viel auf die FM Community gehört um das Spielerlebnis noch besser zu machen. Dieses Jahre wird es das Spiel zum ersten Mal in offizieller, deutscher Sprache geben und mit der Bundesliga Lizenz. Ich hoffe, hier in der Gruppe auf Fans aus Deutschland zu stoßen, die es ja schon seit Jahren gibt, die Teil einer Community werden wollen. Fantasy Draft Ligen, Online Spiele, private Ligen... Dafür ist dieses Forum natürlich großartig und ich hoffe hier viel lernen zu können. Auf Facebook habe ich eine Gruppe gegründet um den Community Gedanken weiterzubringen. Falls es schon so eine Gruppe von deutschen Fans gibt, die nicht Englisch fließend sprechen oder schreiben können, bitte weißt mich dafür hin. Falls nicht, hier ist der Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/321810821732810/ Fügt Freunde hinzu und lasst und eine gute Zeit miteinander verbringen! Best, Eddy
  5. Well, we are now heading into the ninth year of this challenge. It has been an incredible six years around here with some great stories, clubs, and players. Rlipscombe, Iacovone and Myself are looking forward to another great year. This challenge is similar to dafuge's, Gundo's & others, starting with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, a great atmosphere and fun with all our users.

If you title your end of season report in bold this makes it easier to identify.

(You can also edit this in the shortcuts options) The LLR Motivational Finally I would like to wish everyone taking on this challenge the best of luck on a long and hard journey to managerial success! The atmosphere and contribution in this thread has always been excellent, long may it continue. As core members for every year, LLR, rlipscombe, Iacovone and PRDH would like to add that we are here to help for the new challengers and hope everybody that participates contributes considerably to the thread. There is nothing better than getting immersed not only in your own game but providing the encouragement to other people's attempts too. Remember we are all fighting the same battle - to defeat the AI (and uncover fabulous newgens!) - therefore it goes without saying that any form of cheating will be severely chastised. Don't do it! We have had an incident in the past, lets not see it again - it spoils the challenge for the hard workers in here. Note: All the screenshots etc are from when I last ran the challenge in 2015, so I will do my best to update them in the coming week, but this is it for now.
  6. Once upon a time, in the West. Of Germany. There was a beautiful city from where once the Great Charlemagne ruled his empire. In this city, the people were happy. They were happy, because they could play sports as much as they liked. The people in the West were so good at sports, that people came to watch them play in their little valley called Tivoli. Heck, they even paid to go and see them. So many people flocked the gates to see them, that sometimes it was quite hard to see them play from the overcrowded stands. That's why they started wearing yellow and black shirts. This led to people calling them "Kartoffelkäfer", or potato beetles. That, or an unhealthy relationship with a lot of German beer. For over 117 years, people would come to the Emperor's city to see the potato bugs play. Unfortunately, except for a period in which ABBA was considered decent music, the potato bugs were actually very bad at playing football anywhere outside of their beloved fortress. For decades, hardly any competitive football was played. Only the 2nd choice of teams would travel there for almost 50 years. Until the year 2004, when the potato bugs reached the final of the national cup and qualified for the magic land that is called the UEFA Cup. This was extraordinary, as they still played at the 2nd level. Luckily, the people of the West would finally cheer again on the date of 16 April 2006, when they promoted to the nation's best league. Dark clouds gathered quickly though, as the rise would only last for one year. It relegated a year later. Five years later, another relegation. One year later, yet another relegation. Financial turmoil, a new castle which would suit too modern and too expensive for the people to attract. The potato beetles were thrown into the dungeons of German football. A quicksand of which very rarely clubs would return. The Regionalliga.... Nowadays, the proud potato beetle club finds itself still stuck in that quicksand. The more it has struggled, the more the quicksand has tightened its grip around the Westerners. Will they ever see daylight again? ----- After a disappointing end to my career in Moldova, I'm heading back home. Almost home, though, as I will remain to the East of the border. However, the club I will be managing is more of a home than many other places in the Netherlands, as it's my favourite place and club to be in Germany. You guessed it, we're going to Aachen.
  7. I'm currently living in Germany and can't purchase FM18 because it is apparently not available in my region. I thought FM18 was available here. Does anyone have a solution for this?
  8. They never have a player with real name and Joachim Low never have been sacked...

  10. “[T]his friendly, inviting Bayern Munich is not, of course, the only Bayern Munich. There is another club. One that annoys and enrages.” The background As someone who spends an inordinate amount of time both reading about football and thinking about potential Football Manager saves, I was struck by a brainwave when reading Uli Hesse’s fantastic Bayern: Creating a Global Superclub, which charts the many ups and rare downs of Germany’s biggest club. ‘Biggest club’ is of course damning Bayern with faint praise. Bayern have won 25 of the 53 seasons of the Bundesliga from its inception in 1963 to 2016. In 2013 they became the only German club to ever win the treble. Most worrying of all from a neutral standpoint, they are currently on a hot streak of four consecutive titles that shows no obvious signs of stopping. It is worth reflecting on quite how far ahead of the rest of their domestic rivals Bayern are in terms of their league*, cup and European competition histories: Looking at the ever-fluctuating fortunes of Dortmund, Mönchengladbach, Bremen et al, it seems unlikely that any German team will be able to get close to eclipsing Bayern Munich over the next century. Thankfully, the FM world allows for slightly more flexibility. I will start under the conditions and obey the rules of the Big Euro Challenge in holidaying the first season and taking over a club that wins promotion to the 3. Liga, however it is unlikely that I will see out the challenge unless my progress is astronomically quick. What is more likely is that this will turn into a journeyman save whereby I will aim to take over at a decent Bundesliga side. It’s worth noting that even were I to start at, say, Dortmund, that would still require winning a massive 21 league titles, 16 DFB Pokals and 5 Champions Leagues (at least) to overhaul Bayern! This save may well take me a very long time, not least as it is extremely likely that Bayern will extend the trophy gap further before I am in any sort of position to start winning things. * I am only counting league titles post-professionalisation, so 1963-64 onwards. The challenge Inspired in part by one of the all-time classic threads on FMCU, @AK22's quest to knock Alex Ferguson (and subsequently Jose Mourinho) off his flipping perch, I am going to see if I can help a German club overhaul Bayern’s tally of silverware. There is of course a question mark in the title of this thread. My foremost aim is not to be all-powerful but to have an entertaining save, having never managed in Germany before. But if I can eclipse Bayern in the process, then all the better! The manager You might remember that I attempted the British and Irish Steel Challenge a few years ago, won a good number of trophies (and the FMCU ‘Best Journeyman Save’ award, a true honour) but fell short of completion due to poor data management (don’t rely too much on pen drives). On FM17 I’ve played a few youth career saves, but have been a bit frustrated in losing my top stars the moment we seem to be progressing. This format should enable me to start small and choose where to go from there. My fictional manager is a 20 year old Cuban, because why not. His reputation is as low as it could possibly be, and I’m normally inclined to start at a club with almost no prospects. Carlo Ancelotti is certainly safe for the time being.
  11. So I'm living in Germany and got pretty fed up with the new Fifa's and randomly I encountered this game and I got pretty hyped about watched videos etc but I live in Germany and can't buy it on Steam I could buy from key sellers but I don't want to support these kinds of sites. My Questions is can I buy the game from the official site although it is linked with humble bundle where the game doesn't exist for me because I'm in Germany?
  12. Hey, Saw some of the previous comments and topics to do with challenges and I was just interested to find out some teams I could manage ? Can really never get into a save. Was thinking about RB Leipzig, would be interested to hear some more! Thanks
  13. Just a quick question about Breel Embolo. Why is he at Gelsenkirchen in my save He plays for Stuttgart in real life and if I check his history, it doesn't show that he's been at Stuttgart. It just says he went straight from Basel to Gelsenkirchen. He joined Stuttgart for about €20m in real life and it says he joined Gelsenkirchen for a similar fee in my save. Is this a bug or am I just missing something.
  14. That's the profile of my manager in October 2019. I never planned doing a story out of this save, so I did some bollox like a 23-year-old as an International Footballer, but there happened some things I have to share with others. ~The story until December 2018~ I started the game as Konny Biggins, an Irishman with a Turkish background and in my mind living in Germany. After having two seasons of a British Steel Challenge in the depths of Northern Irish and Welsh football I had enough of that whole Semi-Professional "crap" and started with an International Footballer reputation and the highest National license. In late April 2017 I took over at Nürnberg, they were mid-table in 2. Bundesliga with low risk to get relegated. When I took over there were 3 games left, the derby against Fürth, a game against Würzburg and league winners Braunschweig. With an interesting 5-2-2-1 approach we drew 0-0 in Frankenderby, won 1-0 through a goal by talented striker Cedric Teuchert against Würzburg and finished with a fantastic 4-0 against the boys from Lower Saxony. I was sure to get them promoted in at most 3 years but as I applied for a job in the Bundesliga to check my value they had enough of me and sacked me after just 33 days. The real career started then in Austria at Red Bull Salzburg who finished 2nd in 16/17. In that one full season, I managed them some fantastic things happened. Let's start with the Europa League On the way to the group stage we managed to beat the Rangers, Trnava and AEK Athens. We topped our group where we met Basel, Bursaspor and Maccabi Tel Aviv. The first really weird thing happened in the first leg of the 1st Knockout Round meeting against Sparta Prague. We were 3-0 up after 20 minutes, the game ended 5-3 for us, but we were in danger to concede more than three. With the 2nd leg ending 1-1 we were through. Our opponent? Manchester City... With us struggling in the league and my general unhappiness with tactics, I decided to go with the approach from @Cleons "Art of Counter Attacking". In the home tie, we sat down with a 4-1-4-1 on Counter and no TIs and managed to kill the game. We had no shot on target for the whole 90mins but City couldn't break us so we went home with a 0-0. One week later in Etihad I was sure that alone couldn't help us so added "more direct passing" and a little bit more pressing. After 36 minutes Djuricin gave us the lead so City needed two to kick us out. As Wisdom scored an own goal in the 70th minute it was sooo nervy but we survived it and knocked them out of the EL. On the same day Pep Guardiola lost his job in Manchester. We lost the Quarter Final very unlucky to Genk, but this night in Manchester was just special. The national cup is a short story. Went out in the 3rd round against Admira Wacker, because they have a crappy sized pitch in which our style of play was killed seriously. The league... In review I can't tell how lucky we were winning the league. While playing the games it didn't felt like this. In March we could have gone 10 points clear Rapid Vienna, when losing to them sandwiched by the Man City games. Finally we won the title with more luck than judgment. In the last 4 games two 90+ winners rescued our chances and that Rapid drew against Wolfsberg on the last matchday was pure luck. I didn't want to leave RBS, with some outstandig talent waiting to get through I hoped to be able to bring them to the Champions League Knockout Stages in 3-4 year. But AGAIN the board had some problems with my long term goals. After qualifying for the CL group stage by turning around a 2-4 in Zagreb with a 4-0 at home they decided to sell two of my three established Centre Backs on Deadline Day behind my back. When my talent is sold without that I control when I can't develop the squad in 1000 years. So I stepped down and nearly slammed my keyboard in anger. In December I went back to Germany taking over at Mainz 05. The first games didn't went that bad, in Freiburg we only lost because of two freekick goals (2-3) and against 1860 Munich we won a solid game 2-0. So I was hopefull going into the winter break. Could I rescue the club from going down, or will I regret resigning in Salzburg? You'll see in the next part (hopefully tomorrow).

    FM17: FC St. Pauli

    FC St. Pauli FM2017 Team Guide History FC St Pauli, is a German sports club based in the St. Pauli quarter of Hamburg. The team dropped down to the Regionalliga in 2003, at that time the third highest football division in Germany and remained there for four years. In 2007, they won promotion back to the 2. Bundesliga and in 2010, they were promoted to the Bundesliga. Since the 2011–12 season, they have played in 2. Bundesliga. FC St Pauli has a cross-town rivalry with Hamburger SV, the matches between the two are known as the Hamburger Stadtderby. The club also has a rivalry with Hansa Rostock. While the footballers have enjoyed only modest success on the field, the club is widely recognised for its distinctive culture and has a large popular following as one of the country's "Kult" clubs. FC St. Pauli supporters are highly identified with left-wing politics Fans/Support St. Pauli enjoys a certain fame for the left-leaning character of its supporters: most of the team's fans regard themselves as anti-racist, anti-fascist, anti-homophobic and anti-sexist. The organisation has adopted an outspoken stance against racism, fascism, sexism, and homophobia and has embodied this position in its constitution. Team supporters traditionally participate in demonstrations in the Hamburg district of St. Pauli, including those over squatting or low-income housing, such as the Hafenstraße and Bambule. The centre of fan activity is the Fanladen St. Pauli. The club prides itself on having the largest number of female fans in all of German football The club has many fan clubs around the world, in England probably the most notable being Yorkshire St. Pauli Facilities The home venue of the FC St Pauli is the Millerntor-Stadion. Work on the stadium began in 1961, but its completion was delayed until 1963 as there was initially no drainage system in place, making the pitch unplayable after rain. It originally held 32,000 supporters, but the capacity was later reduced for safety reasons. In 1970, the stadium was renamed Wilhelm Koch-Stadium, in honour of a former club president, but this name became highly controversial when it was discovered that Wilhelm Koch had been a member of the Nazi Party during the war. After protests by fans, the name was changed back to Millerntor-Stadion in 1999. A total redevelopment began in 2006. The final phase of the redevelopment work ended with the completion of the new north stand in July 2015. The stadium is since then permitted for a capacity of 29,546 spectators of which 16,940 are standing and 12,606 are seated. The Stadium is located next to the Heiligengeistfeld, and is overlooked by the infamous Flak Tower IV to the north and a building of the Deutsche Telekom to the south. It can easily be reached with the Hamburg U-Bahn line U3 (St. Pauli Station and Feldstrasse Station).
  16. TSV 1860 Munich - the most successful team in Germany? Intro So here it goes.. After a disappointing FM16 (not the game, just my inability to find a save to stick with) I have decided nice and early to find a save that I believe presents a big challenge and something that I have not attempted before. Enter 1860 Munich. I picked this team, as it presents an interesting situation, I have never managed in Germany, the club was saved by it's biggest rivals Bayern (mainly due to the stadium rental agreement they have in place - I see what you did there Bayern ), sharing an absolutely stunning stadium in the Allianz Arena and it's superb youth facilities makes for a great opportunity to turn this club into the biggest club in Munich. The Challenge The challenge is simple, to turn this great club into the greatest team in German football history, with a few added extras to make this already monumental challenge that little bit harder! - Return to the Bundesliga - (Once returned to the Bundesliga), no more signings allowed, only current players promoted from the great youth academy. - Top the 'Most time winners' category on the Bundesliga history page (currently Bayern sitting pretty on 26, which is going to grow as I battle my way up) - Win the Champions League The Manager Bobby Healy A 35 year old former football league player who was forced to retire due to injury. Has since worked hard to gain his Continental A licence and has been coaching at clubs in England. He had now been given his big chance in Germany after impressing the board at 1860 Munich and has signed a 1 year deal to prove his worth. (Beautiful, I know!) Is it possible, that an unknown manager, can manage a club in a country he is not used to - and take them to greatness? (Well...... for the first few years anyway) So ..... wish me luck on my first FM Career update post! I will be posting regular updates (and please feel free to ask for anything along the way, if you are interested that is!) Die Löwen
