The Save: It's a journeyman save which will probably take me right the way through FM19. I start at Cork City and try to build my way up the top. Like my previous thread, I'll mix career updates with narrative. I've been playing FM since FM16 but I've only every played as Top 6 or mid-table teams in the top leagues of Europe. Now if I was being smart about this, I'd: A: Try and manage at a lower level club to give myself some experience before diving into the deep end to manage a 2 star reputation team. B. Try a test save so I can get the hang of FM19. But **** it, I'm diving right in. The Club: To start off with, I'm going to be playing as Cork City FC. They play in the SSE Airtricity League, the top tier of Irish football. They're defending champions and so the challenge would be to retain the title (a task Cork City failed to do in real life, relinquishing the title to competitive rivals Dundalk) and to do well in Europe and build my reputation before leaving. By Irish standards, doing well in Europe would be making the group stages of either of the two European competitions as Dundalk did a couple of year ago. Here's the stadium, Turner's Cross: The crest: And the mascot, Corky the cheetah: And now for the most important part, the manager! Tony Cochrane: As I've said earlier, there'll plenty of narrative to this save so you'll be seeing Tony a lot. A Cork native, he played for Cork City FC from age 18 to 27 at which point he suffered a career ending injury. He got his coaching badges at 30 and, after doing nothing with his life for the past four years, has decided to go into management. If anyone's interested, here's the league setup I have to start.

Hey guys! I've been a lurker here on many threads and commented on a fair few when I get the chance. So I thought it was time to start my own thread and save. Let's get onto the team then shall we? It's going to be one of my local sides that I turned out for from the age of six until 17. Clonmel Town in the Irish lower leagues. In real life there's no proper pyramid connecting all the leagues but I managed to find a database that links 7 tiers together right up to the Airtricity Premier League and so I'll be starting in the 5th tier. This is going to be a Youth only challenge as I love reading those types of saves on here. There are some real players still here (including a couple of my former managers!) and also some regens to fill up the squad, all random of course. No players will be signed but I'll keep the real players until they retire/are sold/can be replaced. I won't drag this on so I'll post some screenshots of various bits and pieces. As you can see we have pretty meh facilities but the Fairly Professional squad status is a good starting point. The finances start off in the red unfortunately and since it's my first lower league save I'll have to learn how to control them. We got off on the wrong foot with that as I managed to get the wage bill up to €425 a week which was a complete oversight from me as I tried to tie some players down. Our modest history is also there. My best achievement with the club was getting to the semi finals of the National competition at U13s where we were hammered 5-0 by St. Kevins Boys in Dublin (They've produced the likes of Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady etc.) Squad Part 1/Squad Part 2 I forgot to get the ages in but there are a lot of very old players and very young players. Curran who I'm excited about is 16 and I hope I can keep him at the club for a considerable time. Other future prospects are O'Reilly, O'Rourke, Smith, and O'Donovan. The current star players are McGrath, Kiely, Mulcahy and P. Scully (Who's 40 and a former manager!). Tactics (Couldn't post like the other pics for some reason, maybe a limit?) Very simple 4-4-2, pretty self explanatory. Loaded Leagues (Quite a few view only in South American/African etc. to try and get some variety.) Playable Leagues (For European competitiveness further down the line.) Thanks for reading (if you made it that far!). I know that was a lot of info bombarded at you all but if you want more (Greedy bastards. ) just ask!
