  2. Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. All football supporters have suffered the agony of hope. The "what could have been" moments. The heartbreak. The days when your **** of a striker couldn't hit water if he fell out of a ****ing boat. Barbosa at the Maracana, 1950. Messi in the final of the Copa America, 2016. Baggio in the World Cup final, 1994. Ghana at the 2010 World Cup. Bayern Munich in Barcelona, 1999. John Terry in Moscow, 2008. (Ok, if I'm being honest the last two were pretty frickin' beautiful and count among my favorite football memories. But, I digress...) For many, redemption comes in one form or another, some more glamorous than others. Titles won. Individual glories and accolades. The heartbreak simply another chapter in the broader narrative. For others, the heartbreak defines them. Haunts them. Overshadows all other accomplishments, triumphs and accolades. The moniker of the "nearly men" is applied, and supporters grow old thinking, "what if...?" This is the story of those teams. Uhh...well...another story about those teams... Since its inception in 1955, 22 different teams have won the Champions League (and its predecessor). 17 teams have reached the Final, only to fall short: Atlético Madrid (1974, 2014, 2016) Stade de Reims (1956, 1959) Valencia (2000, 2001) Fiorentina (1957) Eintracht Frankfurt (1960) Partizan (1966) Panathinaikos (1971) Leeds United (1975) Saint-Étienne (1976) Borussia Mönchengladbach (1977) Club Brugge (1978) Malmö FF (1979) Roma (1984) Sampdoria (1992) Bayer Leverkusen (2002) Monaco (2004) Arsenal (2006) Similarly, 8 different nations have brought home the World Cup. Yet, 5 have reached the Final and returned home with empty hands: Netherlands (1974, 1978, 2010) Croatia (2018) Czechoslovakia (1934, 1962) Hungary (1938, 1954) Sweden (1958) This save will chronicle my third documented attempt to bring glory to as many of these sides as possible. And, as we all know, third time pays for all. First of all, credit where credit is due -- the idea for this save originated with @smp20, who proposed it as a challenge during the FM15 cycle. I've since been...err...somewhat obsessed with it. My first FMCU-documented attempt fizzled out early: [FM16] If You're Not First, You're Last. While success was only claimed in Malmo that year, that save laid the foundation for all that has come since. The second attempt was 116 pages of utter madness, spanning 18 months real-time, culminating in 2091 after claiming an obscene number of trophies with Hakan Telleus and his son, Gunnar Vikander. This was easily my favorite save of all time: [FM17] If You're Not First, You're Last (Redux). As with before, there are generally no hard-and-fast rules beyond the concept of the save. On the club side of the shop... This is not a youth-academy-only save, even though I do enjoy developing youth and will usually focus on that. Rather, I will work within club-specific plans without any self-imposed transfer restrictions (e.g., a 2-4 year-plan makes sense with the like of Arsenal, versus a 6-8 year plan with Malmö ). I will leave on high -- thus, once I've won the Champions League, I must move on. Surely I won't be fired...again...will I? After my first club, I will only accept a position with one of the sides listed above, or a club that manages to join this elite (!?) group of "nearly men." Likewise, if a club manages to win the CL under another manager, they are removed from the challenge. The only pure "rule" that I will invoke is the @Dave. rule, instituted during the FM17 version of this save. Quite simply, this rule means that my manager has to prioritize Leeds, by joining them at the first realistic (in-game) opportunity. (The rationale being that I harbor a great dislike for the club...just don't tell anyone that I enjoyed managing them in the '17 version of the save, ok?) On the international scene, the same basic rules will apply -- I will only accept an international management position with an eligible nation. If I win the World Cup, I must move on. Nations can be added to and removed from the eligible list, based on results at the World Cup. With respect to Czechoslovakia, I consider both the Czech Republic and Slovakia eligible. While some of these sides are "easier" than others, I will begin with one of the "smaller" clubs and proceed from there, wherever the winds take me. Per usual, I am holidaying several years into the future, to allow for a unique playing environment. I've loaded the top leagues in Belgium, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Serbia, Spain and Sweden, with a large database/pool of potential players. And, as per usual, my saves tend to exist in a "multiverse" of sorts, so familiar faces may pop up (although they may come up in different contexts). Up Next: We need to set the stage, and see what the football world looks like in August 2023. Only after we've done that can we meet our managerial hero...
  3. Last year I had a great time managing all over Europe. So much that this year I'm planning to do the same. Loaded nations are the following: Belarus, Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. I want to try some of these more obscure Eastern Europe nations in which I have never managed in. I'm excluding some nations (Russia, Romania, Greece, Turkey) as I don't want to repeat countries from my last save. The plan is to move freely and win silverware in as many countries as possible. Initially, I only want to manage one club per nation, so let's see how I can do that and win trophies. I'm starting unemployed and without a particular place in mind to begin. Also, I'm playing this save on FMT. Feedback from the community has been positive and I want to maximise my playing time. I restarted the save but this time in full classic mode, as there are some annoying aspects in FMT which I (still) can't cope with for a long term save.

  7. Here we are again, I won the Champions League with Amathous but now we're going to Africa and there are a few rules I'm adding. I'm not allowed to sign any players. The DoF or whichever member of staff is available is also not allowed to sign any players. Even though this is a journeyman I'm not allowed to apply for any jobs, I have to be headhunted. The goalkeeper has to take all free kicks and penalties. We must always bless the rains. After 10 years in charge of a club, or reaching legend status, I am free to apply for another job if no club has approached me. I won't be starting unemployed but I will be starting with the team predicted to finish bottom in the lowest ranked league in Africa which is Miracle du Sud in the Mayotte Lower League. I've also set my manager as a Mayotte native.
  8. Trials and Triumphs of a Turkmen Meet Bahtiyar Saparow, a young Muscovite born after a brief fling between a local woman and a Turkmen migrant labourer... or so he's been told - Dad never stuck around to introduce himself, but Mum insisted on retaining his Turkmen heritage. Bahtiyar was a footballing star in the making at school, but his mixed heritage and absent father made him a regular target for the local bullies, and it was only a matter of time before the tackles took their toll. Taken out nastily during a trial at his beloved Spartak Moscow, Bahtiyar instead took to studying the sport. Now aged 22, and inspired by the World Cup held on his doorstep, he is about to step out into the wide world of football management... -- Played on FM17, with leagues loaded from Russia (3 tiers), Ukraine (3), Belarus (3), Georgia (2), Armenia (2), Azerbaijan (2), Kazakhstan (2), Uzbekistan (2), Tajikistan (2), Kyrgyzstan (2), Turkmenistan (1), Moldova (2), Estonia (2), Latvia (2) and Lithuania (2). All edited leagues are the wonderful claassen's. I've holidayed two seasons to the end of the 2018 World Cup, which saw a weird and wonderful group stage lead to football very nearly, but also definitely not, coming home. Bahtiyar starts with no badges, no experience, and a willingness to travel to all parts of the former Soviet Union. His only goals are to make up for the playing career he was unable to enjoy, and to lead his favoured Spartak to success. Anything else on the way is a bonus. A note for the reader - the editor is enabled. This will only ever be used for one of two reasons: cosmetic, narrative reasons, and the annoying habit of staff in smaller leagues to refuse to re-sign after a year because they get too big for their boots. If they were foreigners brought in, I'd cope, but this seems unrealistic and I have no qualms about extending deals by a year with the editor. That'll be all - now on with the show...
  9. With the new update coming for FM 19 I have restarted this challenge, same premise, same set up just new game.

  12. Dioufing Around - Spitting Image of A Sewer Rat El Hadji Diouf. A man that needs very little introduction. if you do need an introduction to one of the most controversial, hated players of the noughties this article gives a good summary: https://sports.vice.com/en_uk/article/53n3d5/the-cult-el-hadji-diouf-liverpool-rangers 8th April 2019 - Diouf Turns To Management Today, of all days, Diouf has decided to leave his native Senegal in search of a job in management. This thread follows his mercurial managerial career, sure to be as controversial and mercenary as his playing one.
  13. There and back to see how far it is... My long term FM saves always start at my hometown club of Coventry City, and I see how far I can meander through the world of football management. In past versions, my career has taken me from Coventry to Roma - via Doncaster, Sunderland, Cardiff City and Manchester United - and I'm intrigued to see where this years version will take me. I keep a keen eye on the job centre for interesting opportunities, whilst trying to turn Coventry City into a sustainable club. Please join me on my journey, as we embark on the twists and turns of FM19! August 2018 The season began at the Ricoh Arena with the visit of Scunthorpe United. We are predicted to finish mid-table, but barring Sunderland and maybe Charlton, I don't see any reason why we can't be in at least the top six come the end of this season. The transfer window is disabled and fixtures follow real life: League One: Coventry City 3 - 0 Scunthorpe United: David Meyler (31), Bright Enobakhare (58), Junior Brown (85) A fantastic start to the season, in a game we lost 2-1 in reality. David Meyler and Bright Enobakhare are fabulous loan signings in League One, and both contributed to the win. Junior Brown scored the third on his debut after his real life move from Shrewsbury Town in the summer. League One: AFC Wimbledon 0 - 0 Coventry City: None A trip to Wimbledon followed, and fiction mimicked real life, as we were unable to break the deadlock. I thought I was going to lose this 1-0 as we dominated the game and waited for the inevitable FM curse to kick in. Happy with the point, although it would've been nice to get two wins from two. Carabao Cup R1: Coventry City 1 - 0 Exeter City: Jordy Hiwula (14) A repeat of the play off final which saw us promoted back to League One last season, we managed another win over Exeter City and secured passage to the second round. A well rotated squad gave Hiwula his first start, and he took the chance with both hands. In reality, we lost away at Oxford United 2-0 in Round 1. League One: Coventry City 3 - 2 Plymouth Argyle: Tom Bayliss (4), Bright Enobakhare (12), Jordan Shipley (18) We flew out of the blocks in this game, and totally dominated our visitors going three nil up within the first twenty minutes. We changed to be more defensive later in the game, and it allowed Plymouth back into the game with two goals from corners. Nervy finish, but we managed to keep hold to win 3-2. We won this game in real life 1-0 thanks to a penalty. League One: Blackpool 2 - 2 Coventry City: Dujon Sterling (2), Jordy Hiwula (pen 5) Another game where we started so well, but ended up throwing the game away. Loanee Dujon Sterling scored his first professional goal, with Hiwula netting from the spot. Again, defending set pieces was our undoing, and we suffered a disappointing draw... not as disappointing as our 2-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road in real life though! League One: Gillingham 0 - 3 Coventry City: Jordan Shipley (3), Luke Thomas (29), Jordy Hiwula (49) We are starting games so well, and again took the lead within the first few minutes. This time we did the job properly and came away with three points. Luke Thomas fired in our second just before the half hour mark, before Hiwula continued his excellent start to the season. We drew the game 1-1 in real life, and a clean sheet is a great way to bounce back from our previous two games. Carabao Cup R2: Scunthorpe United 0 - 1 Coventry City: Luke Thomas (86) We left this one late, but I am delighted to get through to the next round. Luke Thomas scored for the second consecutive game late on to put us through for a home tie against Millwall in Round 3. At the end of the month, we sat at the top of League One with three wins and two draws. Into September we go in fine form!
  14. After reading @Makoto Nakamura epic career,I've been inspired by it and decided to do something similar but with a twist.Instead of going A to Z,I will be starting off in the weakest region (based off the rating of the main Continental Competition).This means I will be starting off in Oceania and working my through North America,Africa,Asia,South America before finishing off in Europe. This is now my playground First up is Oceania!
  15. Introduction After years of reading career threads, I've finally decided to make an account and give this a go. My name is NF7 and I'm buzzing to get started on this save. I haven't actually had a long-term game since FM15, but will be changing that with this thread. What will this be? A typical, unoriginal, classic journeyman save. I'll be playing exclusively in Europe, moving where I please, and trying to play the game realistically. Inspiration for my update style will be largely based off my favorite threads by TomTuck and SRL88, as those are the ones that first got me into reading this forum and were fantastic careers. Leagues Loaded England | League Two France | Championnat National Germany | 3. Bundesliga Italy | Lega Pro (Serie C) Spain | Segunda División B Portugal | Liga II Holland | Dutch Tweede Divisie Belgium | Derde Klasse (3rd tier) Poland | I Liga (2nd tier) Hungary | Nemzeti Bojnokság II (2nd tier) I want my first job to be out of the top 5 leagues and hopefully somewhere like Hungary or Poland, where I've never managed before. Meet my manager, Luca Romano, a 33 year-old Italian. I've given myself professional experience at the local level and no coaching badges to start off. I'll be starting at a low level, but not the complete bottom of the barrel. The only language spoken is Italian, but by the end of the career, I'll have hopefully picked up a lot more. Objectives My only real objective is to enjoy the save, anything else is a bonus. I want to make this long-term and hopefully win a lot of silverware, but how it happens just depends on where the game takes it. I'll be making an effort to play defensive, counter-attacking football throughout this career as that's a style I haven't tried much but would like to give it a go. It would be cool to build a team similar to Mourinho's first Chelsea side, which rarely conceded goals and was devastating on the break. I hope you enjoy reading this career! I'm looking forward to getting back into this game and reading some of the newer FM19 threads. Wish me luck!
  16. Around The World in 80 Days? Probably 80 Years! Hello and welcome to my Journeyman adventure! I'm Mike Nevo and I'm about to go on a long journey around the world to become one of the best managers of all time! I'm starting this journey with no previous experience as a manager, no qualifications and a hunger to find my first job! In this opening post, I'll constantly update to provide an overall look at how my career has panned out so far. I plan to stick with this save until FM2020 is released! If you have any constructive criticism on the format of my updates, please don't hesitate to tell me. It is my aim to provide less waffle and more pictures, but if that's not what people like, then I have no problems in changing my style! My Career In A Flash! Season 1 We headed to Wales in season one where we managed to begin our career in style with a league victory and double cup victory with Aberystwyth Town! Season 2 We decided to move on and try somewhere new and that took us to Ireland with Bray Wanderers who were fighting for promotion in the Irish First Division. They had been relegated the previous season and under-performing in the second tier! We managed to secure their promotion through the play-offs! Unfortunately the board weren't happy when we applied for another job and we were instantly sacked! Season 2.5 This brings us to the current day! We managed to finally find a job after over 2 months of searching and that brings us to Northern Ireland with Ballymena United who're in the Danske Bank Premiership!
  17. Hello there, you may remember me from a series of career threads over the years. In fact I had one earlier with FM19, but although I've kept contact with some of you guys, I lost interest in FM for a while and have been out of this forum section altogether for a couple of months. Now that the final patch is out I feel it's time to come back, with a new idea. "New idea" might be pushing it since this is heavily inspired by @ManUtd1's series of "Nearly Men", in which he manages the teams that in the past fell just short of winning the European Champions Cup and Champions League. This is kind of similar as I'll be managing clubs with a similar profile, but the pattern is slightly different - I'll be managing clubs that HAVE tasted success, but just not for a long time: all clubs I'll manage, have been national champions in the past at some point, but not for at least 20 years. ... that's also the only rule in this thread. I don't have a shopping list of clubs that I have to tick to complete a challenge, I also can freely abandon any club at any time, although obviously the goal is to get them to win the league again at least. It's really just a journeyman with one restriction in the choice of clubs. To start off this saga, we'll head off to Eastern Europe... or is that more precisely Central Europe... I can never tell where Centre and East are divided... Also please don't judge me on the appalling banner, it was quite literally done in MS Paint in 5 minutes. World class graphic design.
  18. I've started the Pentagon challenge and I'm blogging it. First post is up: https://aworldwidejourneyman.home.blog/ I'd appreciate it if you'd read and give me some pointers and a follow if you don't mind, cheers guys!
  19. Been working on this save for some time now, thought I would give a quick update and see if anyone else has been doing this. It has been a difficult slog the past few seasons but hope springs eternal that the premier league is a goal. Pretty standard setup, no coaching badges, started at lvl 22 in english pyramid, did not restrict my recruitment of players from other teams. The first years were easy, lots of trophies, lots of league titles, kept a core group of players together who played well. Good goalkeeper and a good striker made things roll smoothly. Most of the time I used a fairly simple 4231, with control mentality. I had a couple of blips in lvl 12 and added a DM, changing things up to a 4141 DM which helped keep things stable. Lvl 11 was rough. Team went semi-pro but could only offer bonuses, no contracts to any players. The first couple years I was competitive and then the next two I was in a relegation battle. Finding a striker was a challenge and when I did, I cruised through the league and won promotion, only missed title by a point. Without my new striker I staved off relegation on goal differential, with my striker I finished 9 pts clear of 3rd place. One other comment about Lvl 11, it adds four league winners into the table each year and relegates four. The four winners are always favorites for promotions and are stacked with players who would never consider playing for me. This seems to be a product of reputation and makes it additionally challenging to win promotion. One note about my board. In previous years and saves a change in ownership often brings an influx of cash. Sometimes this happens frequently. Not so for this save. 1 change in ownership, zero investment. I'll in the red next season and have had no upgrades to any facilities. Poor luck for this save. Couple of screenshots I'm almost through my first season in the Southern Combination Football League Division One. Can now offer real P/T contracts which is a relief, no more poaching. Back in the FA Vase (yay prize money). It's been a roller coaster year and I should finish mid table with a strong finish. I'll do a full update once that is done. I'd love to hear of others who have been at this and if their experiences match my own. I'm probably skipping fm18 and playing this out to see if I can get to the premier league.
  20. If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there This story will follow the footsteps and struggles in the life of Nelson Mandela Jr. Yikes – I mean, with great looks like these, a disgustingly straight posture and a name like that who wouldn’t take this fine gentleman serious? If nothing else his height of 1.50cm… wait did I see that correc-oh, I did. Standing tall and proud at 1.50cm and weighing in at 151kg (????)… How can his short legs carry that much? He weighs a kilogram more than he’s got centimeters… Yes, erhm, a fine man, and quite the sense of style too. White suit with red shirt and purple tie. Flamboyant, this whalelike gentleman. “You need good suit!” was his mother’s words as he went on a shopping trip to the local tailor who was put on a hard task making a suit to match his size. These colors were the only he had in stock in large enough quantity to fit it on Nelson’s corpus. His ‘Uncle JimJom’ who’d been like a father to him his entire childhood laughed so hard he had to lay down three days straight when Nelson returned home. His mother didn’t speak to him for just about the same amount of time, instead she slapped him on the chest as she made loud noises. His mother named him Nelson Mandela Jr. as she was, and still is to this day, convinced that a roughly 70 year old –but still potent! - Nelson Mandela visited The Kingdom of Swaziland and fell in love with her. After a week of great passion, sadly Mr. Mandela had to urgently leave Swaziland. He left without leaving an email or a phone number which of course is the only way you’d ever get in touch with someone as unknown as Mr. Mandela. When Mandela Jr. once showed his mother a picture of Nelson Mandela his mother slapped him and yelled “That is not the man! I will not hear of this. Your father is beautiful and important. You have name like him, go be great man!” And thus began his journey into the world. With a name like that, who wouldn’t want him as their coach? Oh ****, I forgot to talk about his grey hair even though he is 25 years old…. This guy…
  21. Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. All football supporters have suffered the agony of hope. The "what could have been" moments. The heartbreak. The days when your **** of a striker couldn't hit water if he fell out of a ****ing boat. Barbosa at the Maracana, 1950. Messi in the final of the Copa America, 2016. Baggio in the World Cup final, 1994. Ghana at the 2010 World Cup. Bayern Munich in Barcelona, 1999. John Terry in Moscow, 2008. (Ok, if I'm being honest the last two were pretty frickin' beautiful and count among my favorite football memories. But, I digress...) For many, redemption comes in one form or another, some more glamorous than others. Titles won. Individual glories and accolades. The heartbreak simply another chapter in the broader narrative. For others, the heartbreak defines them. Haunts them. Overshadows all other accomplishments, triumphs and accolades. The moniker of the "nearly men" is applied, and supporters grow old thinking, "what if...?" This is the story of those teams. Uhh...well...another story about those teams... Since its inception in 1964, 25 different clubs have won the CAF Champions League. 19 teams have reached the Final, only to fall short: Amicale Sportive Dragons (1980. 1985) Al-Hilal Omdurman (1987, 1992) Shooting Stars (1984, 1996) Heartland (1988, 2009) Stade Malien (1965) Real Bamako (1966) Étoile Filante du Togo (1968) Simba FC (1972) Ghazl Al-Mehalla (1974) Enugu Rangers (1975) Africa Sports (1986) MC Oran (1989) Nkana Red Devils (1990) SC Villa (1991) Ashanti Gold (1997) Dynamos FC (1998) CS Sfaxien (2006) Coton Sport (2008) USM Alger (2015) This save will chronicle my attempt to bring glory to as many of these sides as possible. First of all, credit where credit is due -- the idea for this save originated with @smp20, who proposed it as a challenge during the FM15 cycle, related to the European Champions League. I've since been...err...somewhat obsessed with it. My first FMCU-documented attempt fizzled out early: [FM16] If You're Not First, You're Last. While success was only claimed in Malmo that year, that save laid the foundation for all that has come since. The second attempt was 116 pages of utter madness, spanning 18 months real-time, culminating in 2091 after claiming an obscene number of trophies with Hakan Telleus and his son, Gunnar Vikander. This was easily my favorite save of all time: [FM17] If You're Not First, You're Last (Redux). My third attempt is currently paused in the fall of 2044, where Jean Bleu has rampaged across Europe with multiple sides: [FM 18] If You're Not First, You're Last (Re-Redux). While I'm enjoying my time at Nantes in the save...I felt I needed to run this save in Africa, something I'd long thought about doing, but hadn't attempted. (Why Africa instead of South America? Asia? My daughter is Congolese, and my undergrad studies focused on sub-Saharan African politics with a particular emphasis on transitional justice in post-apartheid South Africa. The quote in the title is from Nelson Mandela.) As with before, there are generally no hard-and-fast rules beyond the concept of the save. On the club side of the shop... This is not a youth-academy-only save, even though I do enjoy developing youth and will usually focus on that. Rather, I will work within club-specific plans without any self-imposed transfer restrictions. I will leave on high -- once I've won the Champions League, I must move on. The only twist I'm adding for Africa is that I will stay on through the Club World Cup, to try my hand against the best clubs the other continents have to offer...and then I must move on. After my first club, I will only accept a position with one of the sides listed above, or a club that manages to join this elite (!?) group of "nearly men." Likewise, if a club manages to win the CL under another manager, they are removed from the challenge. On the international scene, there will be only one rule this time around -- win as many World Cups with an African nation as possible. After winning, I must move on to another African nation. And, as per usual, my saves tend to exist in a "multiverse" of sorts, so familiar faces may pop up (although they may come up in different contexts). In terms of the league setup, I have used @claassen's FM 18 African leagues (and competitions). However, to facilitate the "all African" approach to the save, I have removed foreign player limitations from the starting African leagues. If a club from a new country (e.g., Kenya) becomes eligible, the existing @claassen rules will apply. The idea here is to: (1) promote African youth, regardless of where they come from; and (2) allow me to support whatever national team I'm playing with, at my club side. The default starting leagues in Africa are the top divisions from: Algeria, Cameroon, DR Congo, Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In Europe, we have the top divisions from: Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. I've loaded all current international players, worldwide, and all players from clubs playing in European and African continental competitions. Tomorrow, we will meet our managerial hero... But before we do, let's take a quick look at the tracker I'll be using:
  22. “It's like everything in football - and life. You need to look, you need to think, you need to move, you need to find space, you need to help others. It's very simple in the end.” -Johann Cruyff Hello, and welcome to my first ever story here on the forums. I have been playing FM since FM 17, and have decided to write a story using Kaizer Effenberg, my alter ego. I was inspired to write my own story by “An Impossible Man” and Rob Ridgeway’s story, and I humbly hope that you the reader find this story interesting. This story is a journeyman save with no real goals other than to try and see if Kaizer can manage my beloved Everton and the United States National Team and turn them into good teams. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ September 7th, 2016 It was a warm afternoon in Oswestry, and I took a walk around the stadium. The air was crisp and it was starting to hit me that I was a football manager. My name is Kaizer Effenberg, and I hail from the city of Hannover. I always played football as a kid and wanted to turn professional, but that dream disappeared after I tried out for Hannover’s academy at the age of 14. I was told that I was too slow and not skilled enough to play, and that sent my dreams into a funk. I got through university tending bar, though I always dreamed that I would have to get involved somehow in order to prove that I could still make an impact in the world of football other than a fan watching Hamburg or Everton either in person or on television. At the start of September, I sent my application to dozens of clubs around the world, hoping that I could get my foot in the door somewhere. I was turned down by clubs in Finland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and other places. Much to my surprise however, TNS of Wales did not laugh me off and chose to interview me. The club president Mike Hall was firm, asking me about my lack of experience and why I was the right man to lead the dominant club in the Welsh Premier League. I responded that my goal was to make TNS succeed by focusing on staying dominant in the domestic game, and also focusing on trying to go further in Europe. My goals at this great club are to succeed with people who want to be there, want to improve, and want to be changers for the future. The Welsh Premier League needs to capitalize on the success of Bale, Ramsey, Coleman, and the success of the national team in order to build the national league. I was drawn to this job because the man or woman that can help lead a club into success in Europe and build a sustainable base is going to be the manager who succeeds. Jose Mourinho succeeded at Porto and leveraged his success into becoming a legend. Sir Alex Ferguson built Aberdeen into a team that defied the odds to win in Scotland and in Europe. Howard Kendall built Everton into a team that conquered Europe and should have done more if not for forces outside his control. These men may have walked into situations that were not great, but they built teams and took their success with them to grow their legends, and that is what I wanted to do here. Hall and owner Mike Harris agreed with that vision, and thus I was hired as the newest manager of TNS. The club is located in England, but plays in the Welsh league system and was made famous by Jeff Stelling saying “They’ll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight!” on Soccer Saturday. This year, the team was leading the Welsh Premier League when I took over, with 9 points from 3 games. The squad has plenty of players who can do a job on the domestic front, led by Jon Routledge, the leading light of TNS. Routledge is a 26 years old English player who joined us on a free from Dumbarton in Scotland. I am looking for him to be the main man in midfield and to control that area in the 4-5-1 formation. The reason I chose this formation is because the players are used to it as well as providing me with plenty of support in European games down the line. Once I arrived at the club earlier this week, I took a look at the side and found that it was pretty settled. I was pleased to see that there was plenty of depth in midfield and that was important to me. I prefer to have the spine of the team be the strongest, because the best title winning teams in my 25 years on this earth generally have their best players in the middle. Since I also am a baseball fan, the old cliché goes that your best defenders always play up the middle. Wes Fletcher is the main goal scoring threat, as the 25 years old Englishman has 2 goals in the league and is a new addition to the club this summer arriving from Motherwell after having Football League experience with Accrington Stanley. I know that players like Wes and Jon are going to be key, players who are hungry to fight for the squad and want to improve their chances of getting into the big time. My first meeting with the players was today, and I talked to them. I said in broken English “Hi, my name is Kaizer Effenberg. I came here in order to help us as a club continue on its path to improve itself in Europe and keep dominating domestically. We are the full-time squad here, and we have a target on our backs. My main goal is that we work hard in training to win our next match, and that we build towards goals that are within our reach and broaden those goals as we reach them. My goal for us this year is to continue our good start and prepare for Europe next year, where you guys can work to advance. Everyone that is here has done something right, and I know that a lot of you want to make moves to other clubs and where the lights are brighter. I was told as a player by Hamburg that I was not good enough, and I refused to let that define me. This may be my first manager job ever, and I might have no badges to go with my name. What matters is that every time we cross these white lines on this field or wherever we are assigned to or we earn the right to play, we compete, and compete hard.”
  23. Alright, here we go again. Bad puns aside... Didn't really get into Foggia save, which is a shame, as i really like them. Italy didn't really appeal to me this year. But, as i found out in a online save with my friend, England still do it for me. So, separately from that, i'll be starting another one, starting from the bottom, Vanarama North/South. It'll be a journeyman save, as i'll be jumping ships, trying to get to the top of the food chain in English football. And since i started this thread, that mean that i'm two or more seasons in. Really didn't want to start another one if i wasn't sucked in the save. I've been saving screenshots so it's just a matter of sorting them through and posting in appropriate order.
  24. 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.
  25. Hi, and welcome to another Northernpilgrim career thread. Unlike previous efforts, this time I need to provide a little explanation as to the inspiration behind my career thread. So who was Amerigo Vespucci? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amerigo_Vespucci and what on earth does this have to do with Football Manager 2019? Manager I've set myself up as a 30 year old Italian with the name of the famous explorer, Amerigo Vespucci, after which North and South America are named. I will begin with no coaching badges, and the minimum level of experience The Challenge The challenge is to win the top division in all playable South American Leagues, as well as the Copa Libertadores, Copa America and the World Cup, the last two of which must be won with a South American national team, can only be won after all the leagues and continental club trophies have been won, but do not have to be won with the same nation, although they can be. The leagues must be won in order of reputation, starting with the lowest, which is the Peruvian Primera Division, and the whole challenge must be completed before Amerigo Vespucci turns 58 (he died aged 57). Below is a full list of the leagues in order, which I'll update as the challenge progresses (I'll hide it to avoid spoiling things) The Starting point
