  1. Smoke fills the dark room. In it he sits, wincing at the fumes that emanate from the cigar. The man in front of him is shrouded by shadows. "So we are in agreement, yes?" The man asks him, the end of the cigar flaring threateningly. "Sure mate." Price says as he takes a swig of the bottle. "Just keep this topped up and we've got no worries." He can't see his face but he's sure the man is leering at him. "I see." Is all the man says after a short pause. Welcome aboard Mr. Price." Price goes to shake his hand but he doesn't get the chance. Two sets of hands grip him by the arms and drag him out of the office. The door slams shut behind them. Could be worse. Price thinks to himself as he's led away. Free accommodation and money every time I win, what's there to lose? On the last possible day, Bolton Wanderers were saved by a takeover from an unnamed businessman, in the final seconds of Deadline Day 9 players were acquired but in all the panic they forgot one very important detail. Who would manage them? On the streets outside the Macron Stadium a drunk former footballer woke up, little did he know that his mere presence would lead to a destiny, a long and winding road where glory or failure loomed in the distance. At the very least, they would remember his name... Had an idea for a save, but couldn't be bothered waiting a month to start it, so the idea of a hybrid will be crossed when it comes to it haha. Leagues and Player Changes made using the live update file on Sortitoutsi, Bury is still in this one though since I got it right before they were removed from the League. First step is survival and from there returning to the Premier League and then we'll go from there. Hope you enjoy!
  2. Welcome to Nordicland. (Thanks @XaW) So I was getting a bit bored in Brazil, (winning, winning and more winning is ok, but I need more), although it has been pointed out by @kidthekid that I left prematurely without winning the Copa Libertadores so I'm sure I will go back and do that at some point. I have never managed properly in Scandinavia, (other than a damn good stint in Iceland), and this is an idea for a FM20 save so I am testing out the lay of the land so to speak in anticipation. For some reason the @claassendatabases didn't work when I installed them, (I think he only updates the megapack after a certain time), so I'm not playing with a huge database for each Nation and instead am playing "out of the box". For that reason too, the Faroe Islands are not playable unfortunately. I saw that the Finnish structure is now ranked lower than that of Iceland, (certainly didn't use to be the case), so I decided immediately I was going to start there and I was obviously starting in the lowest League which is the First Division, (YKKÖNEN in real life). As is my style I simply looked at who had the best infrastructure and while all the Training and Youth Facilities were much of a muchness, I could see quickly that in terms of the Youth Intake, there was 1 club that was ahead of the curve. So in I jumped to...... Klubi-04. Everything looks great. We even have some new signings joining us. Background. The Squad. Looks amazing if I'm honest. No less than 14 out of 18 players have 5.0 PA. That's astonishing. Where is the catch...... Facilities. Look amazing. Finances. We have £1.7M in the bank. What the hell!!! This is madness. The U20's squad is simply phenomenal. What on Earth have I stumbled into? Oh hang on. I know what's happened. I have been here before. We are a B-Team and we can't get promoted. That's fine. This is a decent way to start the save for me as I start with minimum reputation and badges, and playing a season will be fine and probably better than holidaying until the end of the season and then taking over a newly promoted club, (that isn't a B-Team). just a point of note by the way...... I wonder what would happen if HJK got relegated and Klubi-04 won the 2nd tier at the same time?
  3. 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!

  5. You may remember me (almost certainly not, though) from such career threads as 'The Seagulls are trying to nick my chips again' and 'Dave Duncan's tour of obscurity' Welcome... After a two-and-a-half year hiatus, I have contracted the FM bug once again. Having skipped FM18 and most of FM19, I have dipped my toe into the vast waters of football management again. As much as I loved the Weston-super-Mare journey, I am far too promiscuous to try that again - the journeyman style suits me perfectly! My previous journeyman on here took me to Iceland, China, England, Belgium and Germany - I definitely get around... Setup... I will be starting unemployed, as always, with Sunday League reputation and a National C Licence (as I hold that badge in real life - talk about a humble brag!). We have loaded a large database with the lowest playable league in the following nations: Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Wales. That gives us a player count of 72,000 - surely we can find a few decent ones?! Plans... There are no grand plans for this save - I'll be learning on the job with FM19 as it looks like there's plenty of new features to get to grips with. I cannot wait to truly experience the wonders of VAR! I'll be introducing my first club in the next post and hopefully you'll join me on another crazy ride! The story so far... The trophy cabinet...
  6. Another day, another journeyman career thread. Game details: England (Championship & above), France (National & above), Germany (all), Italy (all), Netherlands (all), Portugal (all), Serbia (all), Spain (all) FM19.3.5, no databases added What happens now? Going to have to find a job. Shocking, i know. No badges, no previous experience. Every league, every club is an option. Usually, i avoid managing big and filthy rich sides since i enjoy building clubs up but i'm open toward spending 250m on one player as manager of, let's say, United, Real or PSG. Meet the manager:
  7. Hey there! I’m new here after a long time of reading from the shadows and here I am with my favourite manager, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. So, yeah. I'm trying to have some fun with the game by adding a small twist to a well known challenge. I’m trying to do the Hexagon challenge but with teams/nations that had never won the CL/Continental cup. Also I need to win Club and Nation World Cups. Since this will take a lot of time, I’ll probably use a lot of Instant Result just for this save. Will definitely still see finals and important matches. Also, it took me a year and a half (In game) to decide to finally post here, so the first update will be a big one. I plan on doing monthly updates later on. In order to do this task I’ve created a 20 years younger than real John Frusciante, loaded up some Oceania leagues and went on holiday until December. Some jobs are available but the first ones to pick me up are AS MANU URA, playing in Tahitian Ligue 1 Vini. I took the job at the start of March 2019 and found this. Oh, and in case you're wondering why the points don't make sense. The squad wasn't great and we didn't have much to do, since we were in a good position to avoid relegation and we had no chance of winning the league. We ended in the same position we started, which is decent, and now we have a lot of work to do if we want to be competitive. Also, at the end of this season I found out we were qualified for OFC Champions League. I don't know why, but I'm guessing something from the previous season. Going there not expecting much.

  8. Nordic Journeyman- The Aim Hello and welcome to my new save, which I hope will be a worthy successor to my previous adventure, a two-year-long, narrative-driven, award-winning monster of a thread known as Hans Kaiser- Baldness Über Alles! This is a save I've wanted to do for a while now, inspired by several excellent career threads based in the Nordic countries such as @Rikulec's "Frozen Throne" journeyman, @withnail316's "Scandinavian Shankly" saves, and @ManUtd1's various stints at Malmö on his "Nearly Men" epics. I've long held an admiration for these countries as well, which made my trip to Iceland in 2017 all the more enjoyable. Watching a match in Grindavik was my first live football experience, and it's one I'll certainly never forget. I could've done a worthwhile save in Iceland or any one of these nations individually, but I've decided I want to go in for the long haul and achieve glory in all of them. That being said, it's time to look at the goals and rules for this save. Goals: -Win the top domestic league and top domestic cup in Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. -Win the UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup with a club from one of these countries. -After all required trophies are won, become the manager of Borussia Dortmund at the soonest opportunity and attempt to establish global football dominance using a core of players from Nordic nations. -Win the UEFA European Championship and FIFA World Cup with a Nordic national team. Rules: -I cannot leave a country until the top domestic league and top domestic cup have been won, if applicable. I will certainly try to win any other domestic trophies that are available in the nation, such as league cups or super cups, but I won't let a failure to win such competitions stop me from moving on. -I can take a job in any division of the country I'm in, there's no requirement to win lower divisions. -I'm allowed to switch jobs within a country, though I will have to have been at the previous club for at least two seasons to do so. -Once a country has been "completed", the next country I go to must be the next-highest ranked in UEFA's country coefficient ranking, unless a country I have not yet been to has fallen behind the country I was managing in previously in the ranking. In that case, I will go backward. Game Setup " All available Nordic leagues have been set as playable. The top two divisions in Germany, England, Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal have been loaded as view-only, as well as the top division in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Russia. I plan on making the German leagues playable once we're near the point when I can move to Dortmund. I'm using Riddler's Faroe Islands file and @The Good Rebel's excellent Greenland file for this save, which replaces Kiribati in the database and takes Kazakhstan's place in UEFA, who have moved back to AFC. I believe this will be the first thread in FMCU history to head to the world's largest island, so no matter how this save goes, it'll have made some history in the process. I can't wait to get started, and hopefully you lot are too! Týr! Týr! Týr!
  9. DAVID JAMES - FROM EVERYTHING TO NOTHING David James... Over 800 games as a professional goalkeeper and over 50 international caps for his native England and now, nothing. Earning over a reported £20 million over an illustrious 25 year playing career in which he played for English greats Liverpool and Manchester City. In 2014, James declared himself bankrupt after accruing a large amount of debt after separating from his wife in 2005. In November of 2014, James placed hundreds of his football memorabilia for sale in order to pa off his ever growing debts. Now, in 2018, he is looking to earn that money back and is reportedly ready to try his luck within the crazy world of football management. Is anyone is willing to give him a chance? That remains to be seen...
  10. Hey. I decided to start a career and post on the forum. This is a career where I want to take a small team and get the most important jobs. I had something to think about with which team to start, and the chosen team is Rapid Bucharest, a tradition team, disbanded in 2016 and re-established in the same year in the fifth league, obtaining two consecutive promotions, in real life promoting in league 2, and that's what I want to do this season. Rapid has three championships in its history since 1923. The most notable performance in Europe was in 2004 when it was eliminated in the quarterfinals by rival Steaua (now FCSB). The problem is that my soulmate is Dinamo Bucharest, another rival of the Rapid, but I hope this is not a problem. Excuse me English, but I don't really know English and I use google translation. In League 3 there are 5 series, based on the geographical region, and Rapid is in series 2. Our series looks like this: The leagues loaded: I was thinking now that I also put the league in Poland, because I'm moving hard. If it moves too hard, I'll pull it out.
  11. Don't worry, if you've made it this far with your decoder ring, the whole thread isn't going to be written like that! So my Valencia "Nemesis" died a death, this might seem stupid but when I reread my previous Chelsea thread (where I had first come up with the idea) I noticed that I should have taken over Sevilla not Valencia and getting it wrong bugged me... I lost all interest in the save and just couldn't motivate myself to continue, thus back to the drawing board! After at least 10 minutes consideration and a trawl through the forums I have decided upon 2 saves, running concurrently to try keep my interest and variety up. Yes I hear you cry, I struggled to keep my teeth into 1 save, how will I manage with 2, well, you may well be right but lets see what happens shall we. You can all shout "I told you so" at the end of the thread :P So thread 2, this is inspired by some of the wonderful career threads I have read during my short time here, I'm looking at @Makoto Nakamura and @andychar who will work anywhere and win anything and who I enjoy reading and following very much. Thus I will be attempting an around the world thread to offset just how vanilla my latest Chelsea save actually is. However my personal twist is that I will be starting at Z, as I am in no illusion that I may not finish this :P and I am sure many other people have been in this position, and that means that the countries at the back end of the alphabet are well and truly neglected. But no more! I will champion these countries, my global journey begins in Zimbabwe. I would like to thank Michael Itner for his leagues megapack which has allowed me to embark on this mammoth task! Basic ground rules: I will move on in reverse alphabetical order (which might be a challenge all on it's own) I will have 3 leagues loaded at a time I will start in the bottom tier of every nation I will win everything there is to win in my current nation before moving on to the next I will start as myself, with zero managerial badges (for the first time ever) and Sunday league football reputation (which is still more than my real life self!) Finally I will not be rushing through as I am in no position to emulate the immense pace of @Makoto Nakamura so this could end up being my life's work!! (Also anyone who can offer any help on how and when is best to add and remove leagues would be hugely appreciated! as I am very much a journeyman virgin) The face might be randomized, but I would so wear that outfit! I randomly selected a team to start with, I am in the Flame Lily hot seat! was meant to be!! This save is being run concurrently alongside Back to the Future because I'm cheap As always thanks for reading
  12. This years game is probably the best one to date, however, I have gotten bored of each save which is something that never happened before. So I decided to start my very first Career thread in the hope I become more engaged and become more enthusiastic about the game I love. The goal of this career will be to find a home and potentially build a dynasty revolving around academy players and homegrown talents. I will be choosing my starting club but after that it will be a journeyman type save. I don't usually make rules for my saves but for this one, I will have a few: 1. If another club (doesn't matter who) offers me more money I have to take it. I have to look out for my families future! 2. No in game editors allowed. 3. Holiday to the year 2029 so my manager's age was realistic for a retired player. 4. Have ambition and look to move to top clubs if given the chance and make the academy a priority. That's pretty much all the 'rules' now here is an introduction to me, the manager! (Side note: my history is mostly fiction) Meet the Manager: Hello, my name is Patrick and I've been involved in soccer since the age of 14, but my love for the sport began way before that when my cousins in Ireland turned me on to FIFA 2001. I grew up playing for my school and local club teams around Long Island, NY. After a successful senior year with my school team, in which I broke the district scoring record as a winger, I was approached by Division 2 colleges from around the country. After deciding I wanted to stay close to home and commute rather than dorm and waste thousands, I choose LIU Post. A mere 25 minute drive from my house. I had goals of playing for my country but never got a call up from the United States, however based on my strong showing and impressive goal scoring record in college, I did get a call up to join the Irish U21 squad (through grandparents) once but never featured. Following my college career I entered the MLS draft and was selected by the New York Red Bulls in the later rounds and was immediately loaned to their second team. I put in strong performances and always worked hard but when the next season began I was again loaned to the second team. Following that season I was released by Red Bulls and in the years following I played for 7 other clubs, bouncing around from Florida to Arizona and everywhere in between. By the time I reached 30 I started studying for my badges with the goal of completing them before I hung my playing boots up for good. In my later playing years I grew a greater appreciation for the tactical side of the game and found that my true calling in this sport was not as a player but as a coach. I grew an affinity towards total football and gegen pressing. The way Rinus Michels ran Ajax as well as the Dutch NT is something I admire and aspire to achieve. More recently my managerial role model would be Marcelo Bielsa and Sir Alex Ferguson. When I turned 35 my alma mater offered the head coach role which I accepted. I managed there for 3 years and in those three years we won the Division 2 national title twice, something the school had never done before. One of my staff members was a former player Welsh international who played for The New Saints. He still remained in contact with the club and was responsible for bringing over a few Welsh players in the three years we coached together. When he heard TNS's boss had resigned he mentioned my name to one of the board members. A few phone calls later and a face to face interview with the owner and I had now found myself being offered the chance to become manager of The New Saints. They liked my motivation and the fact that they were getting a hungry young manager with ambition. My knowledge of the club and the history of the sport in Wales all together was limited. And to be honest, I was a little surprised by how unpopular the top flight league in Wales actually was. But none of that detoured me. At the end of the day it was a professional club who was willing to take a chance on me. I would have been foolish to say no even if it meant leaving my very comfortable job back home on Long Island. I didn't get into management to coach college my whole life. My dreams and ambitions are to coach professional athletes and work with the best players in the world. I want to be regarded as the greatest manager in the world and succeed where I failed as a player. In order to do that, you have to leave USA. My pay is virtually the same as it was at LIU but there's more opportunity to succeed here and the cost of living is nowhere near as high as New York. I chose my place of residence to be near the stadium, so, Oswestry. The only downside of moving to Europe is they make you redo some courses to get your Continental Pro License. That's no bother for me though, I plan to have my pro license within 2 years. So that's it for now. Thank you to anyone who took the time to read this. I'm already enjoying this save more than the past few just from writing about it lol. Heres to a long, successful career!
  13. The Manager Yuri Boyko born in Ternopil , Ukraine on june 15th 1995 was a part of Ternopils youth team set up from 12 to 18 years old. He was a central defender with good leadership qualities. The season he was invited to the first teams pre season he had a terrible knee injury . Over a year later Yuri recovered but kept having re occurring knee injuries that ended his career eventually. He followed Ternopil closely over the years, going to every game he could catch as well as also becoming a fan of Shaktar Donetsk with all the success they brought to Ukraine recently. Now its been over 5 years since he has stopped playing football all together and in that time Yuri has had a few jobs related to football coaching local youth teams while trying to get a degree in sports science. He has had National C Licence for the last couple of years and when he found out his team Ternopil has been disqualified into amateur leagues due to match fixing he was hear broken like most fans . However Yuri also found out that the Ternopil academy team has not been relegated down from the 4th level of Ukraianian football league. Not the under 21s, not under 19s, but actual academy team. Every youth prospect was poached by bigger clubs or simply did not want to play for Ternopil anymore after the shame that was brought onto the club, Yuri wrote a latter to Ternopils president Sergiy Nadal asking what the plans were for the almost non existent academy . After going back and forth Yuri managed to convince Sergiy to let him be the man to re build the academy as none of more experienced youth coaches wanted to have anything to do with the club. Sergiy gave Yuri one year contract and one year to show there is any potential in keeping the academy alive as the senior team tried to get back into the semi professional leagues . The save I decided to start a new journeyman story with a bit of background now in an attempt to bring back my interest to FM as usually this time of the year I start to lose interest. The starting team is a real challenge as they are not allowed to play anyone over 21 years old. As soon as they turn 21 they are out of the team basically. Also there is danger of senior Ternopil team bouncing back into the 4th tier from amateur leagues which would see the academy team relegated. Time will show how long Yuri manages to stay here, just one season and use the job as an entry into professional football management or the next 10 years trying to be the best academy manager of the country. Leagues loaded These are all the countries Ukraine borders with. Yuri is not ready to go anywhere farther just yet. The team Nothing but greyed out local players which I think i have no choice but to use and give some of them contracts. At the start of the game the scouting search showed only 10 players willing to talk to us. League table One positive is The academy is not going down this year due to Kobras ridiculous point deduction. Next post I will try to have some sort of a team ready for the season and show how the pre season went.
  14. Hersham FC Hersham is a village in Surrey, within the Greater London Urban Area and the M25. Its housing is relatively low-rise and diverse and it has four technology/trading estates. The main A3 London to Portsmouth road runs by Painshill on its southern boundary with a roundabout junction. The only contiguous settlement is Walton-on-Thames, its post town. Hersham Green, in the nucleus of the village, is 3.4 acres (1.4 ha) of open space where regular events take place throughout the summer. Within a few minutes walk of this suburban-urban bulk of Hersham in the east are green fields and meadows alongside the River Mole and footpaths by fields used for mixed farming; in the south of the village is woodland interspersed by Notre Dame School, Feltonfleet School and Walton Firs Scout Camp and bordered by St George's Hill. Hersham is served by Hersham and Walton-on-Thames railway stations with a minimum of two trains per hour and differing types of services on the South West Main Line. Two golf courses are within its bounds, Burhill Golf Club and Hersham Village Golf Club; considerable other land is wooded, used for mixed farming or Esher Rugby Club, much of which is Metropolitan Green Belt. Population: 12,414 Club History There is none....... Hersham FC is a created club to represent my hometown and a starting point for the journeyman career of an inexperienced 20 year old manager, with no coaching badges and Sunday League playing experience (although even calling it Sunday League would be upselling it). Hersham FC will be taking their place at Level 18 of the English Football Pyramid in the Surrey South Eastern Combination Junior Division Five for the 2017/2018 season, replacing Nutfield, who have folded due to financial irregularity (Let's say the club secretary ran off to the Isle of Wight with all the club funds, the keys to the ground and the tea lady). The Squad All three squads were populated by grey players, so the first order of business was to offer contracts to all 54 'greys' and then try and assemble something resembling a first team squad of 23. Given that my assistant manager Darren Wardle (Man Management 5, JPA 3, JPP 2) was hired on the basis of being the only assistant manager looking for a job, it's fair to say that his star ratings mean absolutely nothing at this point. Probably the two 'best' (for best, read: Least Worst) players in the squad, neither Max Paterson or Darnell Joynes would likely make it at any higher levels in the game, but for now they are the shoulders that all the hopes of the Hersham FC fans are resting on. John Barlett (ML) already hates me after I accidentally demoted him to the u23's and despite rectifying this error, his morale remains 'abysmal'. One player of note in the u23's, not because he's any good or has potential but rather because his name is David Dickinson. Let's hope he ends up being the 'Real Deal'....... I'll get my coat ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, the aim for this save will be to see how far in the game my rookie manager can go, starting near the very bottom of the English Football Pyramid. I will be looking to change clubs at some point, but they would have to be relatively realistic job opportunities. I'm not going to be travelling the length of the country to manage an amateur team in Newcastle for example, there would have to be some kind of financial sense in moving. Then if/when I get a chance managing a professional club then each job offer will be judged on merit and how likely I would be to take it. Initially I only have England loaded down to Level 18, but as I move up the leagues and my reputation increases I will be looking to add leagues in Europe and the rest of the world as well as removing leagues/levels to free up some space and speed things up.
  15. 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.
  16. "Nemanja ooh, Nemanja ooh, he comes from Serbia, he'll fcking murder ya" Nemanja Vidic is one of my favourite players of all time, and I've decided to do something new for (hopefully) my last & longest save on FM19. Start off unemployed and then see where the wind takes us. I created a profile for Nemanja which is hopefully reflective of him in terms of the player he was, gave him only national coaching badges but past experience as an international. Also I think that does look a bit like him The leagues loaded are top divisions from the top 10 European leagues, don't think my computer would have been able to handle much more. My aims for this save are to - go 10 years into the game, sounds simple enough but something I have never managed! - at each club I am at, we have to win at least one major trophy before we leave - hopefully along the way become one of the top managers in the game, at least top the Serbian HoF - would like to maintain a strong Eastern European & Balkan presence at every club in terms of players & staff Applied for the vacant Bordeaux job straight off the bat, but they weren't too keen. It was only in October that we finally landed an interview with Krasnodar FC in the Russian league, perhaps thanks to Nemanja's former playing experience in the country with Spartak. And so we took over the club on the 22nd of October, with them somehow languishing in the relegation places down in 14th place in the league. Fortunately though, we were still involved in the Russian cup and also the Europa league, which I had not realised the club was participating in. I spent some time studying the club, the squad, and Russian football in general, having never played here before. Some really interesting things! 16 teams in the top division, so only 30 league games to be played which is quite a small number. To go with this, there is a massive two month long winter break, from mid December to mid February. This does complicate matters a bit for clubs who make it to the European knock-out rounds. Of course there is a foreign player limit, annoyingly it is for the match-day squad and not overall squad. Basically there must be at least 5 Russians on the pitch at all times. The best teams predictably seem to be the ones from Moscow & of course Zenit. Even more interesting is the history of the club Krasnodar, which I didn't realise was only founded in 2007. The club got lucky with consecutive promotions which were not earned through league finishes, but because the clubs finishing above got dissolved. This seems to be a trend in Russian football, as even the winners of the most recent Russian cup in 2018, Tosno, don't exist anymore! So it seems like the first objective should be to just stay afloat then Coming back to Krasnodar, so in our brief history we haven't actually won any trophies, closest was Russian cup finalists in 2014. So it would be amazing to be the manager to actually bring home the first ever trophy in the clubs history and inaugurate that trophy cabinet. The facilities seem very impressive though, with a 34k seater stadium, along with excellent training facilities and the best youth facilities in the league. Seems like the owner has really invested into the club. Unsurprisingly, he is the only club "legend", apart from him we have no other icons or even favoured personnel. Hopefully we can get Nemanja to make the list soon. The squad actually looks quite strong, and I can see why the pre-season prediction was for us to finish in the European places. Still enough time to hopefully make that happen. In the next update, will cover my first few months of management at FC Krasnodar.
  17. Following on from my recent career I fancied another long career, but this time confined to Europe as last time around we spent most of our time in Oceania and Asia. Once again I have a few rules I will be following both in terms of where I am allowed to move and how I will be deciding what leagues are loaded within Europe. I am using a modified database so that potentially every country in Europe will have plenty of leagues to be managed in. There will not really be any direct goals to this career, beyond the usual win as many things as possible. Rules of the Career 1. When I am unemployed I must accept the first job I am offered, this will last throughout the whole career, so whatever club, no matter how low they play and how much reputation we may have at that point can get our services, they just have to be the first to offer us a job. The only exception to this are international jobs where if I choose to I can choose to not accept that role. 2. When unemployed I must apply for every single job that is available in the database, and answer the questions as best as possible at interview to get the job. 3. I am not allowed to be both manager of a club and an international manager at the same time. 4. Once I am in a job I am not allowed to be disloyal to the club and apply for vacant roles. I can however link myself to jobs in the press (not declare interest in job) if it arises. I can only resign whenever I want from my current club but will then be subject to unemployment rules as described already. 5. If I am headhunted and offered another job, I am free to move on to that club should I choose to. 6. My avatar must begin with minimum experience and no coaching badges as usual for my careers and must start the game unemployed. 7. For the first time in a while I will not be doing a DoF challenge. I must do all my own appointments and transfers. 8. Leagues are only allowed to be loaded based on the mechanics described below. 9. I must resign from a given club based on the "sabbatical tracker" mechanic described below. 10. I am allowed to reject a job despite the rules above if I have already managed there before. NB: I may not take a job if the club does not have a logo, just plays with my OCD too much, but since I have a huge logopack installed that should really not play much of a factor. Mechanics Core Leagues - The top divisions only in England, Spain, France, Italy and Germany will remain available for the whole game. These are the core leagues and can never be unloaded. I am also unable to add any divisions below the top divisions in these countries. Non Core Leagues - 5 leagues structures from 5 European countries will be loaded, the countries have been decided by a random number generator. Any of the remaining European countries that are not the core countries can be loaded. I must load the full structure that I have available, so if it goes down to Division 5 so be it. These countries are unloaded when they reach 100% attrition and a new country is randomly decided from the random number generator Attrition - Every year at the end of the season there is a chance that the league will gain "attrition", this is basically how far along the track that country is from being replaced with a new country in the database. Once a country reach 100% attrition they are replace. Attrition will be calculated at the each season I complete. The calculation for attrition is every season there is 20% chance that a country gains attrition, and this attrition can be anywhere between 10% and 40%. As mentioned once attrition reaches 100% they are replaced. Non Core Leagues note - if a country has just attritioned out and they are selected again straight away, then we roll again until we get a new country. In the case where several countries attrition at the end of the season, the same applies we would need new countries to the tune of however many have attritioned. So if we have Scotland and it reaches 100% attrition, they cannot get back in on straightaway to replace themselves, but would be eligible any time in the future. Sabbatical Tracker - This a weird mechanic that will only be used if I am very successful at a club. To avoid a situation where I just stay put forever, once I have won the top division and a European competition, the sabbatical tracker kicks in. Every season once I have accomplished that feat from the end season of where the situation is true, the sabbatical tracker will gain between 1% and 25%. Once the cumulative reaches 100% I am forced to resign from my role and look for another job. I don't actually have to be out of the game for a year, but I am calling it that for the sake of having a name for it. Our Avatar for this game will be 20 year old Portuguese wannabe manager Valentim Silva. Hopefully he can work his way up the European ladder. The randomly chosen countries as follows:- I will be back once we know who the club is that we will be starting with.
  18. Hello! For quite some time I wanted to start a challenging game but couldn't find the right challenge so I decided to create my own. Basically the challenge is to win a World Cup with a team from each continent + winning the local competition.

  20. 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...

  24. 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.
  25. 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...
