  1. 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. Special credit to Duccio for the logo atop this years challenge.

(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) I will show some examples of updates down below in the next posts so you can see some of the stuff previously posted. 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, I also provide a list of some previous star players that may have become household names in this thread. E) Other If you are Sacked You can Restart from the beginning or; Continue your game and pick a new club (Under Same Rules) at the end of the next season or; Add another Big Euro League/Remove Current League, holiday a whole season and continue You can still only have one nation running at a time Once the league becomes active you MUST holiday a full season The club must be one of those unplayable from the beginning No Restrictions on Parent or Feeder Clubs 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 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.
  2. There are seemingly a multitude of clubs within the Serie C that have been at the top of Italian Football for quite a while and then once relegated experienced a heavy decline. Calcio Catania are one such club, now plying their trade in the Italian Serie C/C. However, their relegation from the Serie B in 2014/15 was not fiscally inspired but rather the result of a series of match-fixing which was appropriately punished. Now after languishing in the league for the past few seasons it is my task to restore them to the Serie A and establish a new dominant force in Europe. Aims for this save - Immediate Promotion to the Serie B - Serie A within 3 seasons - Win the Serie A - Win the Europa and Champions Leagues Pretty standard goals, so to add a little flavour to it I'll add a restriction No players can be purchased that aren't Italian, or based in Italy A nice little mixer to the challenge will be us starting the season with a -7 point deficit, following poor financial management. In order to win the title we have to be dominant. Whether this team is capable of that though, is another matter entirely. Deficit removed in the early stages. Time to get to work.
  3. The classic FM Challenge, San Marino Calcio in the Italian structure. Simple plan, pick up the club, improve the finances, develop the academy and hopefully some great Sammarinese players come through, probably have a crack at the national team when the time is right. Fast forwarded a year until June 29th, to reload until they were promoted to playable, but they were promoted first go. Proceeded to sign everyone and their Italian cousin, and here we are. I won't bother screencapping the transfers as there are 28 in, and far more out. Finances are already swirling down the drain, well done me, only took two months! Staff ratings, post overhaul. EDIT: Forgot to show the active leagues. Deadline Day signing Tsonev is our star player. Full squad for now. Part of the reason for such a busy transfer window is that I started it out planning on playing 4-1-4-1, and I quickly grew to despise it after a few cup games, and switched to a diamond, requiring extra strikers and attacking mids. Unparalleled technical skills here already.
  4. Background Venezia F.C were first found in 1907, over the years the club would go on to be the biggest team in Venice, enjoying rivalries with Padova, Vicenza, Udinese and Verona among others. The club experienced arguably it’s best run over the early 1940’s, winning the Coppa Italia in 1941 season, boasting a squad that including future Il Grande Torino members Ezio Loik and Valentino Mazzola, one of the greatest Italian players of all time. Following their relegation to the Serie B in 2005 the club was declared bankrupt, following on the club would struggle to return to the higher echelons of Italian football, suffering bankruptcy twice more before the current iteration of Venezia F.C would come into being. In November 2015 the club was taken over by former Bologna president Joe Tacopina and financed by a group of American Investors would win promotion from the Serie D to enter the Serie C for the 16/17 Season. Squad The squad is ridiculously strong for the Serie C, the majority of players rated at Decent Serie B/Leading Serie C, one of the key issues with the team though is the high wage budget at 100k pw with finances predicted to spiral in the near future if promotion is not achieved. The standout player is Maurizio Domizzi who is still a brilliant player at the age of 36. His wages are a definite issue for the club, but he leads the backline and is definitely worth the short term as we chase promotion. Tactics The 4-2-4 is a bit of an experiment in trying out a new tactic for the Game this year, the main tactic is the 4-2-3-1 which essentially looks at dominating the games due to the talent of our squad and focuses primarily on ball retention as we play the game on our own terms. Transfers We mostly stuck to free loans this year Pierini and Diakhate are definite coups and both have genuine potential to be at least Serie A level players in the future. Bertoncini was a pick up to partner Domizzi in the backline and has the ability to play a key role for us next year if we get promoted as well. Giraudo, Bordin and Bertoli fill out the rest of our first team at LWB, AMC and RWB respectively, although none of them could be considered standout players. Pre-Season The start to the season wasn’t ideal, only picking up one win in our non-competitive fixtures, that friendly was also after the season had begun as well so not a key indicator that things were looking up at the time. We performed well enough in the Serie C Cup to make the Knockout Rounds League Results Contrary to our pre-season form we kicked off the season with a bang picking up wins in our first two games and 10/15 points from our first five fixtures. The result vs Bassano was a particular highlight as they were in 1st at the time and the win against our key rivals for Instant promotion this year (Parma) was also great for our confidence as the season got underway. The board expects instant promotion through winning the league, something we definitely should be capable of achieving at this stage. Whether our finances come back to bite us in the future is definitely something to consider. Cheers for Reading! I’ll aim to update at least once every few days
  5. I have just spent 65 million on a Colombian regen, only for him to be ineligible because he is non-eu. The problem is that he is the only non-eu signing I have made in the last two years who is still at the club, the rest have either been sold or loaned out. How can I make him eligible?
  6. Hi, I've decided to go for my first actual documentation of a save, and I've chosen to take on the challenge at Sampdoria! Sampdoria were a fantastic team in the 90's, and are very much part of the Football Italia 90's nostalgia wave. They haven't quite hit the heights since winning the title in 1990-91 with a team featuring Vialli and Mancini. They've had some great players over the years, the likes of Gullit, Klinsmann and Platt have all put on the iconic jersey. While we may not be able to recapture the glory years in the 90's, we'll be trying to push Samp as far as they can go. Their history combined with the ridiculous crop of young talent Sampdoria currently have meant this save was always on my to-do list. I'll update this thread quarterly, so expect the next update will be around October-ish game time. It shouldn't take long, and hopefully by then I've got bit of material to work with. Thanks.
  7. Hi Guys, I've just started a new save - one which I have never done before. I am going to play exclusively as the Italian Football Team Manager! I'm new to International Management so it's going to be an interesting journey! Here's Episode 1 Please like, comment and suggest! Enjoy watching! Here's the link to the playlist with all the episodes so far:
  8. 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
  9. I'm a couple seasons in with AC Milan and I feel quite confident that the game's mechanism for properly handling Non-EU transfers and registrations in Serie A is faulty. The last couple seasons I thought I might have just been doing something wrong, but I no longer think that is the case. The rule states the following: If I have 1 or zero Non-EU players in the squad, including those soon out of contract but excluding those on loan, then I can sign 3 Non-EU players without restriction. My squad only has 1 Non-EU player (Matheus Pereira) that is not out on loan at June 30th; all others are presently loaned out (and had been so well before June 30th) and therefore should be excluded from the calculation. It is June 30th, and I got the annual notification about how many Non-EU players I can sign. It is telling me - as it has told me each year, regardless of how many Non-EU players I have in squad - that I can only sign 1 Non-EU and only if they have 5 Int'l caps. ie, the game is treating me as though I have 3 or more Non-EU players in the squad (excluding loans), when I actually only have one. I am uploading two saves: One on June 30th (Milan 2019 Jun 30.fm), another on June 26th (Milan 2019 Jun 22.fm). (ignore the file name on the second one - it's June 26th in-game)
  10. Hey, I just wanted to know if anyone knew of teams which had new stadiums being built within the game? I know Tottenham have their new stadium being built by 2018-19 and play at Wembley. Just wanted to see if any other teams had a new stadium being built. Thanks!
  11. 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. [FM17] Forza Cosenza

    Cosenza Calcio Bio Cosenza Calcio Srl is an Italian football club, based in Cosenza, Calabria. Currently the team plays in Lega Pro, the third tier of Italian football. The club is a phoenix club of Cosenza Calcio 1914. In summer 2011 the club was refounded as Nuova Cosenza Calcio and restarted from Serie D. After a mediocre start, they sacked coach Enzo Patania and hired Tommaso Napoli. They won 9 and drew 7 without a loss to finish the regular season in second place to HinterReggio in Group I and entered in the promotion playoffs. They won 6 in a row to become champions of the playoffs. The club won the promotion playoffs by beating SandonàJesoloCalcio 3–2 in the final, but not being automatically promoted shall remain still in Serie D. On Monday, 5 August 2013, the team announced that it was promoted to the professional league, Lega Pro Seconda Divisione. Circa 2013 the club refer itself simply as Cosenza Calcio, a name change in Italian Chamber of Commerce was done some time later. Cosenza was promoted again to the unified 2014–15 Lega Pro after ending the 2013–14 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione season in fourth place. The team mathematically secured the promotion in March 2014. The club's nickname is 'I Lupi' which translates into The Wolves. Stadium Cosenza currently play at the Stadio San Vito in Cosenza, Italy. This is a multi purpose stadium with a capacity of 24,209. Hopefully one day we might fill the thing! Kits I'm a fan of giving any team I manage new kits and I've done the same here. I've retained the original Cosenza red and dark blue for the home kit and featured it on the white away kit also. The kits are much like their current 16/17 kits but with a slight twist. Aims Short Term:- - Gain promotion to the Serie A - Establish ourselves as a Serie A side Long Term:- - Qualify for Europe - Win the Champions League - Win the Serie A and dethrone Juventus as Italy's dominant club 2016/2017 Season:- In my first season in charge I retained the original Cosenza squad. The club were predicted to finish third prior to me taking charge and as such I scoured the Serie A attempting to bring in youngsters on loan. Yes. That is the Andy Johnson. I thought he could do a job up front as my original strikers were a bit bleh, however it was Patrick Cutrone who led the line for the majority of the season. Melegoni, Clemenza, Llamas and Sakor all played major roles in my team within my 4-2-3-1 set up. Leading to this... Promotion at the first time of asking was a great result however the clubs finances much like the majority of the Serie B and Lego Pro teams are in free fall. I also managed to pick up the Coppa Italia Lego Pro Cup and the Italian C Super Cup. 2017/2018 Season:- Transfers:- With a significant number of the original Consenza team's contracts running out I decided to let them do so in order to try to bring in players of Serie B quality. With little to no transfer budget I recklessly signed two newgens for 210k total. This left me with no transfer budget however with several players leaving I had enough of my wage budget left to attempt to build a team. Gerard Gambau was a real steal from Barca B and has significant potential! Preseason 2017/2018 A solid preseason with one minor blimp against Manfredonia however progression in the cup with a fluke win against recently relegated Palmero! (A sensational team goal which I will upload if I work out how to do so!) League Table:- This is where I am currently. One game into the 2017/2018 season. Having never really posted any career updates and for the most lurk these forums. However after reading some of the great stories by @LPQR and @BoxToBox I thought I'd give it a try! Any constructive criticism is very much welcomed! Forza Cosenza!!!
  14. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37194666 Seeing as this is happening in real life, will this be implemented in the game? The top four leagues should have 4 group spots from 2018-19 but this has not happened for me and I am post that date in my current save, will this be implemented?
  15. i need help (if is possible) I have added Italian lower league in my game. But after 30/06/2018 the game don't create schedule of all leagues. I think that is a problem of editor... Can you solve it? If you want i send the link where i have charged my saved game. http://www.filedropper.com/nunzio17 Thank you
  16. I ran a series of match replays (reloading the game file) with the same match: Reggina x Cosenza. Italy's Third Division. I coach Reggina. In some, I coached directly (or lightly), in others I went on vacation and let the Ass Coach ran it. These were the results: Reggina 0 x 2 Cosenza - I coached heavily Reggina 1 x 3 Cosenza - I coached heavily Reggina 2 x 3 Cosenza - I coached lightly (I let Ass Coach select team and Opposition options) Reggina 4 x 0 Cosenza - Ass Coach ran (I went on vacation) Reggina 1 x 2 Cosenza - Ass Coach ran (I went on vacation) Reggina 3 x 1 Cosenza - Ass Coach ran (I went on vacation) Reggina 1 x 1 Cosenza - Ass Coach ran (I went on vacation) It's clear I got worse results when I coached heavily. However, I found it striking the widely random results when the Ass coach ran the match. Any thoughts on why of AI's random results, and what I can learn from AI in order to beat Cosenza myself? (It seems that a lighter approach works better). Thanks. Ciao.
