  1. Sunday 5th May 2013 Almost as quickly as the job had become available, I had decided to throw my name into the mix, and they had decided I was the man for the job, then I had to move for a ten hour flight. Minsk to New Dehli, with a change of flights in Ukraine. The FA had offered to send their plane for me, but I would have lost half a day waiting for it, so it was quicker to jump on a scheduled flight. I was met and whisked to a city centre hotel, where I met the people who would become my new employers. The South Asian nation of India is the 7th largest in the World by area, and the 2nd most populated on the globe with over a billion citizens, and growing rapidly still. Cricket and Tennis are by far the most popular sports in the country, football competing with hockey for a top three spot. But this nation has never produced a global household name in the Worlds most popular sport. Now the hierarchy want to push the nation forward, and frankly, that is pretty much the only place India can go in football. As of today, with 208 nations officially ranked by FIFA, this nation sits in 202nd place. Only San Marino, Aruba, Cayman Islands, Grenada, Laos and Somalia are ranked lower by the games Worldwide governing body. We hold just four ranking points right now, and to put that in perspective, current number one ranked nation Italy has 2,119 points. The FA of India has in fact been part of the problem. The nation that counts Pakistan and Bangladesh as it's most fierce rivals hasn't played a Senior game for over 18 months. When India were predictably, but bravely, beaten by Qatar in October 2011 in the First Round of the Asian Zone Qualifiers for the FIFA 2014 World Cup, the FA then neglected to arrange any Friendly matches. So the only matches the nation played in 2012 were the Qualifiers for the 2012 Summer Olympics, which are played on an Under-23 format. With no football, India lost ranking points that were no longer valid, and tumbled down the rankings. That in turn led to India falling below the threshold to be included in the Preliminary Round Qualifiers for the 2015 Asian Nations Cup, which are in progress right now. That's a terrible mistake to make by an FA that always has been, and still very much is, convinced that there are plenty of young talented footballers amongst their vast population. At this point, with the domestic season just finishing, there are 924 professional or semi-professional footballers who qualify for India, either solely, or along with another nation. One of my main tasks will be to nurture the nations young footballers. Frankly, that is a job that will be delegated. The age group sides (U-23, U-21, U-20 & U-19) have been neglected almost as badly as the Senior side. Back in 2012, they did take part in the Asian Under-19 Championships, losing to Australia and Kuwait and beating Syria in the tournament held in China. The nation has a developing domestic game, the Indian National Football League is dominated by two clubs however. Mohun Began and East Bengal are streets ahead of the other ten clubs, and between them they usually hoover up most of Indian footballs young talent. A thriving transfer market sees player regularly move clubs for a extra couple of pounds a week, and not always for the better welfare of their careers. It's not uncommon for players to join less competitive non-League sides who can pay them a little more due to better sponsorship. The League operates a rule that permits no more than three foreign players per club. For a developing league that is trying to strike a happy balance, it could probably do with being increased to five to allow the clubs to try and attract more marquee players, and for the domestic players to have further opportunities to learn from professionals from nations with greater football development. Several clubs have not bothered with foreign players at all, mostly due to the increased cost. For those that have indulged in foreign players, they mostly come from African nations, Ghana and Nigeria featuring primarily. There is of course a sprinkling of Brazilians, like an Irish Bar, you are never really far from a Brazilian footballer. A few have now spent the five years required to be classed as residents in India, and as such can be called up to play. This is something the Indian FA have not really been in favour of. Well, I can tell you right now, it will be happening. While we are 202nd in the World and not even ranked high enough to take part in the Qualifiers for the Continents major Championship, we will be taking any advantage we can to climb those rankings as quickly as possible. With that goal in mind, I will be selecting our opponents very carefully. Special attention will be paid to the Rankings and opportunities to move past fellow Asian nations. We will be looking to move up around fifty spots to get alongside the likes of Hong Kong, Vietnam and Bangladesh who were amongst the nations who featured in the Preliminary Qualifying Round. Other nations to find themselves on the outside looking in like ourselves were the likes of Malaysia and The Philippines. We won't be going and chasing games against big nations right now, we'll be looking to match ourselves against nations we think we can beat to try and move forward, and hopefully install a winning mentality. Something else that the FA haven't really taken a liking to is their players moving abroad. That will also, I hope, start to change. Indian players becoming exposed to football overseas and improving their game would be of huge benefit to us as a nation, and those players that take the leap will find themselves with increased chances to feature in the International squad if they can make the move and get regular football. Right now, the highest rated player in Indian football is plying his trade in France. 6'4 striker Shafiqul Islam Chowdhury is a second string player with League Un club AS Saint-Etienne, and is a dual national. He is nowhere near good enough to be coveted by France, and the 19 year old Kolkata born player has been capped seven times at Under-21 level, netting three goals. There is another forward playing further down the levels in France, a defender in Belgium, one of the nations most popular players is making his living in Vietnam, and a defensive midfielder in Italy. It's not like we have nothing at all to work with, otherwise I wouldn't have agreed to come here. After an overnight in New Dehli, and a press conference to announce my appointment, a meeting with the FA sees the roles for managers of the age group sides filled. Finally, before I board the Indian FA's plane to head back to Belarus for Lokomotiv Minsk's midweek game, we arrange a pair of home Friendly matches for next month, both of which I am confident we can take wins from to get the ball rolling. We will play both matches in Kolkata's 120,000 capacity Salt Lake Stadium, first hosting Sri Lanka (199th) on Saturday 8th June, before stepping it up to face Thailand (115th) on Wednesday 12th June. Asian nations, much like their African counterparts, are prone to changing their managers often, including almost routinely after major tournaments. With that in mind, my time in India may prove to be short, and from a purely selfish point of view, I am here to attempt to enhance my own footballing reputation. If India's football fortunes improve as a direct result, even better. ----------------------------------------------------- Welcome, This save is now almost two years old in real time, and just short of five years old in game time. After success in the original part, where the fortunes of Northern Irish minnow club Lurgan Celtic were drastically improved, I moved across the Irish Sea to try and perform a similar feat with Ayr United in Scotland's third tier. Sadly, that didn't quite go to plan, as we were denied promotion with defeats in the Promotion Playoff Semi-Finals in successive years, also denied success in the League Challenge Cup with a defeat to Raith Rovers in the Final. A third crack at promotion was dealt a blow when the Scottish season didn't click on to the new campaign after 2011/12, and I made the move to Eastern Europe, where I am now in charge of second tier club Lokomotiv Minsk, where we have three wins from four matches in the early stages of the 2013 season. If you have not read the progress of the save, you can catch up of course if you wish, the links are included below..... Part#1 Part#2 Part#3 Now I have accepted an offer to dip my toe into the International game after previously rejecting offers from Netherlands Antilles and Liechtenstein. This thread will be updated as and when we reach International Windows, including squad announcements, match reports and anything else that impacts on the International Football fortunes of India. Grateful thanks to FMS stalwart writer @CFuller who used this method to seperate a joint save previously on these boards, and gave his permission when I asked if he would mind me replicating it. Enjoy the story, and as always, feel free to ask any questions you may have. ------------------------------------------------------
  2. The Following Screenshots are from FM Editor 2019 The Goal is to try to create an international double round robin league consisting of 20 teams with the possibility of relegation and promotion. The first (top tier) league was originally planned for the best 20 seeded teams (FIFA Ranking) following by the next best 20 seeded teams in League B and so on and so forth. This league would replace the Domestic Leagues and really focus on internationals i.e. this league. I was still planning to have a World Cup once every 4 years (keeping qualifications and everything in place) but I want the Nations League and Euros and African Cup of Nations and similar Continental Cups to be gone. Can somebody guide me how this could be possible using the editor? Thanks!
  3. Hi, Please can an option be added to leave the current club job when taking an international management rather than having to accept and have both jobs then resign as this then has negative press.
  4. why don't national teams have numbers in qualifiers and friendly they should have numbers like the real world
  5. why isnt there an option to let the board sign the staff like the clubs
  6. So, a week ago I was playing fm16 as Bharat FC (Indian National Football League). In my team, there was one thing I noticed most was that stats didn't really matter! For example- A ball playing defender with defend duty has stats like - Tackling-8, Marking-6 Anticipation-10 and other attributes even worse plays better than another defender with same role and duty and attributes like Tackling-11 Marking-13 Anticipation-15 and other attrubutes also better than the above. Similarly, in Forward, two deep lying forwards play together, one has stats like Finishing-4 Dribbling-5 Acceleration-11 Stamina-10 Pace-14 and the other has stats like Finishing-9 Dribbling-6 Acceleration-10 Pace-12 and former has scored around 30 goals this season whereas the latterhas scored just 8. Notice that in both the cases the age of the players are same
  7. i am currently managing FC Vaudz in Switzerland but also managing liechtenstein National team , one of the players on my vaduz team has just gained liecht nationality but for some reason i cannot ask him to represent the national team but i can with every other player that is not on my team and has just gained nationality
  8. I recently resigned from my job as the manager of Bharat FC (A club of Indian national Football League) and pretty soon got the job as the manager of Cameroon's international team. I played my first match against Swaziland in the African Nations Championship qualifying round and won 4-0. Now the problem is that my next match is after 84 days ! Please tell me what should I do in these days
  9. This week in my saved game a notification came that the India U23s manager has resigned for unwanted performance in the Asian qualification cup. A week passed but no one was a favourite for the job and my manager is pretty popular in Indian National League managing Bharat FC. So my question is that shall I apply for the job or not because my team Bharat FC has once won the Asian Champions League and maybe we could soon get an entry in the UEFA Champions league. Thanks in advance !
  10. Denzel Dumfries from PSV Eindhoven has now gone on to make 2 appearances for the Dutch national team. He is however listed as having made 2 appearances for Aruba. Could this be changed to Holland?
  11. So basically i applied (in FM19 beta) for the U20 england job in july but i have been waiting for months now and still ahvent got a response. no manager has been appointed. Is this a beta thing or can you not apply for u20 jobs and get the role? can someone help me out pls.
  12. Summary: the team I'm using is significantly more fatigued compared to other teams despite the same number of rest days Description of Issue: using Malaysia in SEA Championship, reached knockout stages but other teams appear unaffected by fatigue
  13. Hi all, For a long time, I've wanted to make Jamaica a consistent world cup participant on football manager. In the past I've achieved this by improving the domestic league and improving the clubs, youth recruitment and facilities through the editor, so that a few years down the line we get pretty decent regens (one of them becoming a key player at Barcelona xD). However, in FM19 I'd like to do this without the use of the editor (though, I will have to use it to add the Jamaican domestic league as a playable league). My plan is to manage 2/3 clubs in Jamaica, and improve the youth facilities, recruitment and coaching so that we get a good number of decent regens coming through each year. I suppose my question is; has anybody got experience of doing something similar (for example the classic San Marino challenge!) and if you have, how long did it take to see a "return on investment"? Any tips/stories would be appreciated!! Peace
  14. Why does it take 2 days for my international players to return from a home international match to a local league match from the same nation? (I'm both the national and club manager from the same nation, and I called up the national team almost everyone from my club. Currently we have a league match 2 days after the international match, and now most of them are still on international duties...)
  15. I managed a club team when three international friendlies were arranged. I gave instructions to play 45 minutes a game and for the first two games they were ignored by the international manager. Consequently I withdrew the players for the 3rd game. However, before the next international match the international manager was sacked and I got the job. But now I cannot select the players who were withdrawn. The 'international' option on the player profile page does not give me the option to 'Call up to England squad'. For players who were not withdrawn the option is there. The international pool still lists them and shows a red 'withdrawn' in the player status information column. I can find nothing anywhere in the game or editor that allows me to select them.
  16. Is there someone who can help me or give some instructions? I would like to create an International league (different divisions) with most of the worlds national teams. Already many thanks!
  17. While making a database where all club, international, and intercontinental competitions follow the same format, I came across an issue while removing everything. After testing my first leagues, my game always crashed at the moment where the World Cup was about to begin. After some confusion and testing around, I came across the tab 'competitions' which in itself is under the 'test competitions' tab. There I found out these were left over: Is there a way to remove these files? And if so, will that fix the problem of the game always crashing at the 18th of June, 2018?
  18. I load my game and go to my tactics to find that the shirt behind the players name on the screen has disappeared and this affects many parts of the game including pre match and tactical subs, also when playing an international friendly the In match badges did not appear
  19. BIG FISH. TINY POND - TAKING NZ FOOTBALL TO THE WORLD The New Zealand football team lives constantly in the shadow of the all-conquering All Blacks rugby union team. Their geographic isolation, coupled with Australia's decision to move to the Asian Football Confederation means that the team known as the 'All Whites', are now by far the biggest fish in the tiny Oceania Football Confederation pond. Competing for continental honours against the likes of Fiji, Tahiti and New Caledonia, New Zealand do not often have the chance to test themselves against quality competition. Winning the OFC Nations Cup sees them gain entry to the FIFA Confederations Cup, however against some of the biggest nations in the football world, the Kiwi's are often easily swept aside. FIFA World Cup qualification is similarly difficult. The early rounds seemingly a formality, they then are forced into a inter-continental play off against a team that has missed out from a stronger continent. For reference, in attempting to qualify for Brazil 2014, the All Whites were tripped up at the final hurdle by Mexico 9-3 on aggregate. The last challenge for New Zealand football is the club game. There is only one professional club in the entire country. Wellington Phoenix play in the Australian A-League, but the New Zealand national competition is fully semi-professional. HISTORY The All Whites have made two FIFA World Cups, but are yet to win a game in six attempts. In 1982, against Brazil, Soviet Union and Scotland, the Kiwi's lost all their matches and finished with a goal difference of -10. Their efforts in 2010 in South Africa were much better. Drawn against reigning World Champions Italy, as well as Slovakia and Paraguay, they drew all three matches and finished above the Italians who came in last. The New Zealanders finished the tournament as the only team to be undefeated. As mentioned earlier, the Confederations Cup has offered the team its best opportunity for competition against the worlds best. However they haven't always covered themselves in glory. In the four (real life) versions they've competed in, their record reads, P12 W0, D1, L11 GD-29. Of course we will be taking part in Russia 2017 during this save. BEST PLAYERS Captain Winston Reid (L) is our star player. A stalwart at the heart of the West Ham defence, the big man is key to our ongoing success, and at 28 years old he still has a few good years left. Midfield maestro Marco Rojas (C) is arguably the most skillful player New Zealand has ever produced. The winger has spent time in Europe and is now with Melbourne Victory in the A-League. Striker Chris Wood (R) will be vital in our one striker formation. Currently leading the line for Championship Leeds United, at just 25, Wood is coming into the peak of his powers. GOALS FOR THIS SAVE Aside from the obvious goals of winning tournaments and developing international stars. I hope to tick off the below too. - Make the top 50 in the FIFA World Rankings - Score a new record high FIFA World Ranking (current best is 47th) - Rank higher than Australia - Make the top 25 in the FIFA World Rankings - Make the top 10 in the FIFA World Rankings - Make the top 3 in the FIFA World Rankings - Become the number 1 ranked team in the FIFA World Rankings - Win a match in the FIFA Confederations Cup - Qualify for FIFA Confederations Cup Semi Final - Qualify for FIFA Confederations Cup Final - Win FIFA Confederations Cup - Qualify for FIFA World Cup - Win first ever FIFA World Cup match - Qualify for FIFA World Cup Second Round - Qualify for FIFA World Cup Quarter Final - Qualify for FIFA World Cup Semi Final - Qualify for FIFA World Cup Final - Win FIFA World Cup - Beat Australia in a major competition - Create new record for New Zealand's biggest ever win (current best is 13-0) And so it begins .....
  20. Need of a lot of fixes for national teams competitions, 1) WORLD CUP FINAL TABLE ERROR World Cup final table (since round of 16) this is a programmation error. In the image, this is the correct table, with the red line, the wrong inversed schedule on the game to fix. This error make the game unrealistic infortunately. 2) HOST COUNTRY FOR SOME NATIONAL TEAM COMPS We want to look host country for Oceanian Cup, Copa America, Asian Nations Cup, North American GoldCup, and for the Nations League final 4 (semi finals and finals schedule) in the competition menu, like it's already done for World Cup for example (3th screenshot) 3) INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS HOST COUNTRIES ON THE GROUP A ! EURO Championship, Africa Nations Cup, Copa America, North American GoldCup: host country must be ON THE GROUP A ! For a more realistic gameplay. I don't have screenshot, but Cameroon hosts African Nations Cup 2019 and the draw can put them in a random group (can be the C, the B or other). But ecause they are host country they always must be on the group A for the 2019 edition (and Guinea always on the A for the 2023 edition) and not another group like is now posible actualy on the game. The EURO Championship have the same problem with host countries. Only World Cup have the correct and realistic group A schedule for that (I talked about this on the 1st point but the problem of World Cup is the final table schedule who is not realistic). The North American GoldCup, Copa America, Asian Nations Cup have the same problem too but in worst because they dont have host country. 4) PROBLEM WITH AFRICAN NATIONS CUP 2019 MODULO 4 (---> 2023, 2027, 2031 ETC...) WINNER CAN'T PLAY CONFEDERATIONS CUP 2 YEARS LATER Please fix too, African team for Confederations Cup must be the African Cup winner and not a substitute team. I suggest African Nations Cup must start on the middle of July and end on the middle of August for not interact with Confederations Cup. Because like you can watch on this 2 screenshoots, Algeria won African Cup of Nations 2019 but Cape-Verde is qualificated for substitute Algeria because Algeria plays African Cup of Nations 2021 and cannot play Confederations Cup in the same time. 5) Please fix Confederations Cup 2021, must be in the same country of the World Cup 2022 I dont have screenshot but in my database, Confederations Cup 2021 was in Qatar and World Cup 2022 in Australia. I would be more realistic if Australia hosts Confederations Cup 2021 and World Cup 2022. 6) RUSSIA AND UKRAINE UEFA POLICY Ukraine and Russia cant be on the same group because of political problems (UEFA Policy) 7) EURO 2024: WILL BE HOSTED BY GERMANY OR TURKEY CANDIDATE COUNTRY (OFFICIALY CONFIRMED BY UEFA) The EURO 2024 will take place in Germany or Turkey candidate country (officialy confirmed by UEFA who will choose host country in September 2018) but on the game we have Spain host country possible. It's not realistic and it must be fix. Thanks for reading ! If you have any other suggestions you can post it in commentaries.
  21. hi i am managing Italy, and we have reach the semi finals of the European International League, with that match scheduled for 21st June, but we are also in the Confederations Cup this year with the first match on 29th June, what happens to the EIL final if we get through. thanks
  22. With FM'09 being stable with no crash dumps or errors, I decided this would be a good platform to recreate my attempt to transform the footballing fortunes of a nation considered to be a minnow by becoming essentially a footballing dictator. You may remember I have tried this twice previously with Kyrgyzstan, both attempts ending in failiure due to unstable expansion data packs. I will take charge of a National Team, but will also be in charge of their age group sides as well, as I attempt to transform their footballing culture from top to bottom. This save should have no such issues, as I have no extra leagues loaded, playing using only the leagues that were built into the original game with a large database loaded. In these older editions of the FM series, there was less emphasis put on nations from Asia, North America etc. I had planned to play as Kyrgyzstan once again, and while the national pool of players was suitable, they weren't drawn into the Asian Cup Qualifiers at all, leaving me in charge of a nation that had no competitive football scheduled. That left me with the conclusion that Europe was the best place to attempt this challenge. To make the save as realistic as possible, I wanted it to be a nation with a league structure in place in the game. That would immediately rule out the likes of San Marino, Faroe Islands and Andorra, as well as your next level of sides like Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Azerbaijan, Malta and Montenegro, No, the lowest ranked nation in Europe with a league loaded was sat in 106th position, and was the footballing outpost of Iceland. They have a two tier football pyramid as well as a bustling non-league that offered chances for those sitting on the outside to move into the second tier. With a population of around 350,000, getting towards half of that living in the capital territory in and around the city of Reykjavík, the pool of around 1,700 registered players was good. In fact, as well as players established in the game, such as the nations all time leading scorer, Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen, there were some very exciting prospects just about to start making their footballing journey on this island in the very north of the Atlantic Ocean. With 50 year old Ólafur Jóhannesson resigning his role, I would take charge of the nation with effect on Boxing Day of 2007. Strap yourself in, this may be a bumpy ride. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Hello. Welcome to my latest attempt to organise an entire nations International football pyramid, and turn them from minnows to respected, and maybe even feared opponents. As mentioned above, I have tried this twice before with newer versions of the game with Kyrgyzstan. Both met a sorry end, though not before the first attempt (linked <here>) won an award from the readers of the FMS Forums. The second attempt can be found <here>. If you like the idea of the story, and were not already aware, prolific writer and hero to Dagenham fans across the globe, Chris Fuller, also wrote a story of similar nature with England, and you can find that <here>. This save is using FM'09, with all nations loaded, a large database and the unfaking process completed. No aspect of the game has been edited, with the exception of cosmetics, such as logos and kits. My reputation is set to 'Sunday League Footballer'. The main difference between this save and the previous attempts, apart from hopefully longevity, is that I can be sacked. Should that happen, I may attempt to secure another International job, or I may end the save. I hope you enjoy the journey, comments and questions are of course welcome as always. And yes, I have deliberatley spelt 'years' incorrectly in the title just to use that 'ash' symbol. Thank You.*
  23. FM17 San Marino International Challenge Hello and welcome to my first FM story where I will be taking on the extraordinarily tough challenge of San Marino. I was tempted to wait for a database and do this challenge with club and country but I couldn't wait to get started. In case you don't already know, the San Marino Challenge is where you take the San Marino international team (and usually the San Marino club in the Italian Serie D) and: 1. Take the international team off the bottom of the rankings to World Cup and European Championships glory 2. Guide the club to Serie A and go on to win the division as well as the UCL title. As you can probably tell, this challenge is VERY hard and will take a lot of time and hard work. We will get battered at the start, but hopefully some good regens and well-trained tactics can help us on our way to glory. I have already done a few games (hint: it's not gone too well) and I will upload screenshots of those games once I have completed a full year of fixtures. From then, in between dafuge's challenge, (I know- two challenges...) I will play this career and continue to update you every in-game year. Also, Hopefully you enjoy reading my story and we can face the good- and bad- times together SAN MARINO- THE ROAD TO GLORY BEGINS! P.S. If you want any screenshots of the game, just ask and I'll be happy to provide them
  24. I will be trying to do a journeyman save where I start as a 26 year old manager with little skill and I load a lot of leagues for me to start on for the release date of FM18. Anybody else enjoy doing an journeyman style of experience in FM18? Please let me know if you have any tips or recommendations.
