  1. Heya! I am playing a career in the Kazakh Custom made Premier League, at the moment I need to submit my squad for the league, can you help me to know please if it is a bug with the league or am I missing something and if there are any solutions to this?
  2. So, a week ago I was playing fm16 as Bharat FC (Indian National Football League). In my team, there was one thing I noticed most was that stats didn't really matter! For example- A ball playing defender with defend duty has stats like - Tackling-8, Marking-6 Anticipation-10 and other attributes even worse plays better than another defender with same role and duty and attributes like Tackling-11 Marking-13 Anticipation-15 and other attrubutes also better than the above. Similarly, in Forward, two deep lying forwards play together, one has stats like Finishing-4 Dribbling-5 Acceleration-11 Stamina-10 Pace-14 and the other has stats like Finishing-9 Dribbling-6 Acceleration-10 Pace-12 and former has scored around 30 goals this season whereas the latterhas scored just 8. Notice that in both the cases the age of the players are same
  3. I recently resigned from my job as the manager of Bharat FC (A club of Indian national Football League) and pretty soon got the job as the manager of Cameroon's international team. I played my first match against Swaziland in the African Nations Championship qualifying round and won 4-0. Now the problem is that my next match is after 84 days ! Please tell me what should I do in these days
  4. Ok so i thought i'd start a Bundesliga thread! With the addition of the Bundesliga in this years FM I'm aboslutely loving managing Schalke 04 the proper way thiis time! What Bundesliga team are you managing?
  5. Good day everyone, I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the General Discussion Forum but - well, here we are. Suppose you create a brand new competition in the Editor (whether it's an 8th tier in England to add to the existing tree or a division in an entirely new league structure) and fill it with clubs but don't populate the club with any players. Instead you rely on the game to add players to playable clubs. Which factors then determine the (current) ability of those generated players? I assume league reputation factors in but, based on the players I've seen generated, it might be based mainly on Competition Level. Then again I assume a Latvian 3rd level division will have a lower average player ability than, say, a Spanish 4th level division. Is there a quantitative rule? Or at least a semi-quantitative guideline? Thanks in advance for any helpful replies!

    CREATING REGIONAL DIVISIONS

    Hey guys, I am planning on creating a new nation on football manager editor. In this nation I would like to create local regional leagues, however I do not know how to do this and I have not found any video or information on how to create regional divisions. I wanted to ask if one of you would walk me through how to achieve a workable regional league set up.
  8. Does anybody know how to buy the extra non-young Designated Player slot? It was mentioned at some point during the offseason and now I desperately need it. I am still in the offseason if that means anything.
  9. 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
  10. Hello fellow FM lovers. I've been playing FM since the 06 version and I've never tried the dafuge challenge. This year, after much reading, researching and playing, I decided to give it a serious shot. I read many threads about Lower League football, but I would like to start another discussion only about the tactical aspect of these leagues. Do you guys play the long ball with fast paced strikers? Do you try to build a team around possession, short passes and flair? What are you looking for in a player? When I started the challenge I wasn't sure about my tactical aproach and wasted all the preseason in tinkering around a possession based tactic, only to change it one week before the first competitive match. I've been playing a "Leicester" type of tactic, but of course I lack the quality to execute it 100% correctly. What are your experiences on this subject? I think that everyone's experience can help others like me with little or no past tries in LLM.
  11. Hi guys, I've been playing with the club Dijon in the French league now for 9 seasons. I have made it a top successful club in the French league winning 3 out of the last 5 leagues and 1 champions league. However my reserve team is now very very strong and destroys everyone in the reserve league by winning all their games pretty much. I noticed teams like PSG and Monaco have their Reserve team in the official French league. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to also integrate my reserve team into the league and give my prospects and other players some harder competition to progress better. Any help or advice would be welcome. Thanks.
  12. Hello Fmer's Need some help if possible please, I started making a classic file like from the best team from a certain era, like 1992 onwards, i have 24 teams in a league, which is fine i have this all sorted, everything works. But what i want to do is create a Champions League type cup for my league, so instead of having a FA cup and league cup i just want one cup. That being like the CL, but with 24 teams in the league i only want 16 teams to qualify, with no relegation in my league the teams below 16 will feel like relegation due to the amount of money they lose that season and not being in the Cup. When i try do this i have all types of problems, doesn't have a option to only allow the top 16 teams to qualify for it, also the groups and knockout stages i haven't got a clue what to do, Like i want say AC, REAL, ManU, Inter. to be seed 1, so they are in different groups but also i haven't a clue about that either. Hope this is clear and would be thankful for the help, also a lot of work as gone into creating these players and teams, i'd also share the file after it's done. Thanks.
  13. Hello guys, I'm new to the editor and I can't figure this thing. So in real life the league in my country has a different structure to this one in the game, so I want to make it like that. The problem is I can't figure it out how, probably because I'm new to the editor and don't understand it yet. The league is like this. First Stage: 14 teams, playing one home and one away fixture. Overall 26 matches for a team in 26 rounds. Every round has 7 matches, played overall 182 matches. Then it breaks in another stage. Second Stage-First 6 teams(Stage Name) The first 6 teams play one home and one away fixture. Overall 10 matches in 10 rounds.(Round 27 to 36). Every round has 3 matches, overall 30 matches played in this Stage for these teams. (Now it gets confusing so bare with me.. :D) The teams carry their asset of rounds from the First Stage in the Second Stage. In the end of Second Stage every team(the 6 teams) have played 36 matches in 36 rounds. Second Stage-Other 8 teams,Group Phase The other 8 teams are placed in two groups: position 7, 10, 11 and 14 in Group A. 8, 9, 12 and 13 Group B. In each Group the teams face each other in 2 matches( home and away) in overall 6 matches in 6 rounds. (Round 27 to 32) The teams carry their asset from the First Stage in the Second Stage. So in the end of the Group Phase every team(the 8 teams) has played 32 matches in 32 rounds. Every round in EACH group consists of 2 matches, total of 4 matches on rounds for the two groups(or 24 matches for the whole Group Phase). Qualifies for Final Phase of Second Stage-8 teams: 1st-2nd place of each group: determines 7-10 place in the final table 3rd-4th place of each group: determines 11-14 place in the final table Second Stage-Other 8 teams,Final Phase 1/2 final: 8 teams are divided in 4 pairs according to their ranking in the Group Phase: Matches which determines 7-10 place: 1st in Group A vs 2nd in Group B(Match 1); 1st in Group B vs 2nd in Group A(Match 2); Matches which determines 11-14 place: 3rd in Group A vs 4th in Group B(Match 3); 3rd in Group B vs 4th in Group A(Match 4). The winners are determined in 2 matches in 2 legs.( The rules are like a cup match. If the final score is a draw, the team with more away goals win, if not extra times and penalties.) Finals: winner in Match 1 vs winner in Match 2 ( Match A) winner in Match 3 vs winner in Match 4 ( Match B) loser in Match 3 vs loser in Match 4 (Match C) The winners are determined in 2 matches in 2 legs.( The rules are like a cup match. If the final score is a draw, the team with more away goals win, if not extra times and penalties.) Final standings for the Season for the 8 teams: 7 place: Winner in Match A; 8 place: Loser in Match A; 9 place: The team which has more points for the whole season among the losers from Match 1 and Match 2( Don't get confused with Match A, B or C); 10 place: The team which has less points for the whole season among the losers from Match 1 and Match 2; 11 place: Winner in Match B; 12 place: Loser in Match B; 13 place: Winner in Match C; 14 place: Loser in Match C; Relegation: 12-13 place: play a match with two teams from the lower league for a place in this league for the next season. 14 place goes to the lower league.(And the winner from the lower league is coming to this league.) 12 place vs 3 place from the lower league. 13 place vs 2 place from the lower league. Only 1 match. If draw, extra time and penalties. So I know it's kind a huge topic so I hope someone see it and helps me :). Thank you for your time.
  14. With the release of FM17 at our doorstep, I thought I'll take a bit of my time and go to FM15 (the only FM I have), to try and prove to myself that I'm not as bad as my managerial careers suggest, and write my first FMC update topic. I'd also like to apologize for any language mistakes I make throughout my updates - I'm not a native English speaker and I'm still quite young. Humans learn from mistakes, don't they? I started the game with ten nations and quite a handful of leagues: England - Vanarama North/South and above; Germany, Italy, Spain & France - Third Divisions and above; Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Ukraine & Brazil - Second Divisions and above. I gave myself no coaching qualifications and sunday league experience, and named myself Bernard Zygier(don't ask...). And the game started! A few unsuccessful job applications as expected, searching for job we go. I was determined to get to work, and on 25th of September 2014 I took Player-Manager Chris Barker's role as Manager of Aldershot in the Vanarama Conference. First Season(2014/2015): Aldershot I shared the board's expectations for a mid-table finish, and I thought I won't put much attention to other competitions, such as the FA Cup. I knew I couldn't wish for any upsets with Aldershot. The beginning of the season was quite disastrous, first four games being two losses and two draws (0-2 Gateshead away, 1-2 Dover away, 1-1 Alfreton home and 1-1 Chester away, respectively). Then, I managed to get a good 2-1 win at home against Bristol Rovers(they scored a penalty). I then got pretty annoyed at my team's poor form when Dartford beat us 3-1 away, but I tried to calmly approach the next game, which was in the FA Cup qualifiers against an Isthmian side Ramsgate. After conceding a silly penalty and getting our defence sliced apart by a through pass in a span of 3 minutes in the second half, Brett Williams came off the bench and scored the consolation goal. We lost 1-2. Naturally, I was quite disappointed, as I predicted a comfortable win, but The Shots continued to shock. The coming fixture, an away match with Gateshead in the Vanarama Conference, ended in a humiliating 7-0 loss, followed by a good 4-0 win over Kidderminster. At that point I was really confused about what tactics should I use and how to approach the games. I got introduced to November by a 0-2 loss to Eastleigh (at that point I was 20th in the division, quite far below my expectations) and signed 21-year old Dan Bennett on a free transfer. He had a solid debut (7.40 post match rating) but unfortunately got a yellow. I gave him a go in the first team in place of Chris Barker, who was in quite poor form (6.38 in last 5 games). I wasn't quite troubled by injuries but the amounts of fouls commited by my team were worrying me quite a bit. Next match, an away 0-1 loss against Southport, my worries were confirmed as right-back Glenn Wilson received a straight red card for a bad tackle. This meant that my player supply was getting quite thin, and I couldn't allow any more suspensions. I generally held onto fluid, standard/counter-minded 4-4-2 and 4-1-2-3 formations, but I knew that change was necessary - it couldn't be just extremely bad luck, could it? Next fixture - an away match against Wrexham wasn't a fixture I was expecting to get any results from. Wrexham were on a 11-match unbeaten run and were 1st in the division, while I was barely hanging above the relegation zone. The only thing I wanted was to not get humiliated. Exodus Geohaghon recently came back from injury and I thought I'd give him a chance - I was very reluctant to let Chris Barker play after his shocking 4.10 performance, though I put him on the bench, aiming to let him play in the second half. I got shocked positively, as we've managed to clinch a narrow 1-0 win! Chris Barker and Brett Williams came off the bench in the 54th minute, and Brett managed to get us a late winner(85'). I got a tiny boost of confidence, I was 4 points clear of the relegation zone. That made me confident ahead of the Macclesfield fixture at home, though I knew that I could lose - I was determined not to let that happen. My main strikers didn't quite deliver, so I gave transfer-listed Andre McCollin and benchwarming Brett Williams a chance in the first team. Brett's goals lately were quite essential, so I was hopeful he'd score against Macclesfield, who were 15th in the Conference at the time. Damon Lathrope, my defensive midfielder, won the Goal of the Month award for November. Against Kidderminster(4-0), he scored a bent effort from 24 yards out which went in off the keeper's near post. December came, and in the FA Trophy I got drawn against Concord Rangers from the Vanarama South. It was a must-win fixture - I couldn't let them be another Ramsgate. A 1-1 draw at home with Macclesfield, I was satisfied but at the same time knew my team could do better (5.80 from Dan Bennett, earning Chris Barker a go in the starting XI). We got an early lead only for Macclesfield to equalize in the second half. Brilliant. Even though I was(and still am) instructing my team to stay on feet when tackling, they commited enormous amounts of fouls (20 to Macclesfield's 12). Worrying. Widdrington spotted at The Recreation Ground Eastbourne Boro boss Tommy Widdrington was seen at The Recreation Ground during Macclesfield's Vanarama Conference 1-1 draw with Aldershot. Speculation in the media suggests that Widdrington may well have been taking a closer look at Dan Bennett, who he is rumoured to be interested in signing. Well, he's not going to sign Dan after that performance, is he? Anyway, I noticed that the acronym for the FA Trophy is FAT, hehe... and I also noticed that my sense of humor is terrible, but let's continue! Concord Rangers match ended with a 2-0 win, I could be expecting a bigger margin of a win but I was satisfied, we had 23 attempts on goal to their measly 4 and had 59% of possession for their 41%. Good win. Ryan Jarvis got himself an assist by catching up to a powerful through pass from Matthew Saunders and crossing it into the six yard box for Brett Williams to head it far post and give Aldershot a lead. Ryan also managed to score after receiving a pass from substitute Mark Molesley and dribbling past Lewis Thomas to put it left bottom corner. It was the second time in the season I could honestly tell my team they had done a good job. It was a nice confidence boost. At that point, Brett Williams earned himself a safe place in the starting XI, but I was getting worried about the availability of my players. Josh Scott just returned from an injury which left him out for, fortunately, only two weeks, and Glenn's suspension just ended. Aldershot doesn't have a big supply of players, so I hoped that the foul streaks will end. I approached the next fixture, an away match versus Welling, rather cautiously, but with high hopes. They were up there in the division(6th) but I didn't forget my Wrexham win. I wanted to distance myself from the relegation zone as soon as possible. Strangely enough, we were favorites for the match even though there was a, quite gigantic, gap between us (6th and 20th?) And as I expected we got banged. 3 - 1, Dan Bennett red-carded, their player also red-carded, and at this point I'm just plain confused. I'm telling my team to not get stuck in yet they commited TWENTY FIVE fouls!!! I even received a fine of 750 pounds after the match because I "can't control my players"! What the hell? I have more attempts on goal yet my players get plain horrible ratings like 5.70 or 5.60 because of wasted chances. What am I supposed to do? What can I change? Am I that bad or is it not my fault? Anyway, after this disaster of a match I fell into the relegation zone. Followed by a 3-1 loss against Barnet, I was just hopeless. Maybe Aldershot isn't the team for me, or maybe I'm not the right manager. Anyway, the next match was an away match against Woking. I didn't even care about the result. Chris Barker was just pissing me off with his promises of getting better and making gajillions of mistakes every match. This was his last chance. Backroom staff suggests setting Chris Barker's status to Key Player. Pfft, why should I consider the most underperforming player a key member? The result against Woking quite surprised me - we were leading 2-0 for quite a long time, only in the 83rd minute our rivals managed to score a consolation goal. Matthew Saunders got a 9.00 and the match gave me a bit of positivity. A win over the club's rival will give me a bit of support among the fans. Aldershot Town boss comes under scrutiny The Aldershot Town hierarchy appear to finally be losing patience with manager Bernard Zygier, according to BBC Sport. BBC Sport are declaring that a bad result against Barnet in the forthcoming Vanarama Conference match could seal his fate. I needed to win. I HAD to win. A side note, Brett got the Goal of the Month for December award. Against Barnet, he ran the entire pitch from our to their goal and finished it near post getting our only consolation. This fixture could seal my fate... it's a Barnet away match. The Barnet match's result left me absolutely flabbergasted. We won 6-4. Goals were flowing freely like the goalkeepers weren't even there - it was by far the weirdest match I've ever attended! Brett scored 5!! The next match was an a home fixture versus AFC Telford. I was quite confident, but I wanted my players to regain consistency. Barker was again, not on form (6.50 last 5 games) and that is worrying for a vice-captain. I played a wide 4-3-3 against them and I think I've finally created a decent tactic! This method of playing has finally been able to get the best out of my wingers, Jaydon Gibbs and Tristan Plummer. Barker finally had a good game (7.10) It was a good game for our midfielders - Damon Lathrope and Sam Hatton both got on the scoresheet and Matthew Saunders got himself a great assist from a free kick. Jaydon, our right winger, scored twice. Sam Hatton scored a great long-range goal off the bar. The scoreline at full time was 5 – 2. Great! After that, I signed Graeme Montgomery as an emergency player in case Tristan is unavailable. It gave me a bit of confidence - the player supply looked more sturdy. We beat Chester 2-0, it was a win I was very happy with - it was proof that I'm onto something with my wide 4-3-3 tactic. Jaydon Gibbs and substitute Brett Williams scored. Then followed a 0-0 draw with Kidderminster, a bit frustrating since we dominated the game. Nothing of note, though our number of fouls is starting to decrease, which is good. An away match with Lincoln won 2-1. We went down by one goal before half time and managed to equalize in the 57th minute. It was looking like a draw but fate was on our side as we were awarded a lucky penalty in the 83rd minute, converted by Josh Scott. After that I took a bit of a break from managing my virtual team to refresh my approach to the games and returned eagerly to manage Aldershot’s FA Trophy match against Bradford. With each fixture my hopes were rising – maybe, just maybe, we can even win it, despite the lack of interest I showed this competition at the start of the season. As Graeme Montgomery was cup-tied, I thought I’ll let him debut after this match in a home fixture against Dover. I took a bit of my time to tamper with some tactics ahead of the Bradford match. I though I’ll let myself experiment a bit. I came up with a 4-1-3-2 formation, the aim of which was to exploit my midfielder’s crossing which is above average and combine that with a very good for this division heading and quite tall strikers (both Josh Scott and Brett Williams are 188cm, or 6’2’’). The game ended in a dominant 4-0 win. I was very happy to notice that most my players were dominating in the air, which I planned to use as a way of improving my performances in the division. Brett Williams got two goals, a header and a finish, captain Glenn Wilson scored a header and Ryan Jarvis scored a good finish capitalizing on mistakes of their defence. At that point we were on a 7-match unbeaten run in all competitions, 15th in Vanarama Conference and most players seemed to find really good form. I had two decent tactics(4-1-3-2 and 4-3-3) and another one which I had to work on, preferably a 4-4-2 due to its versatility and width, which suits both my style of play and the players’. In the last few matches it paid off to analyze the opposing team more thoroughly, so I took some time to ensure I can win the Dover match. I noticed that they were second in the league for pace, and that was quite worrying, but I happily saw that they were 23rd in the division in terms of passing. I thought I’ll hassle them so they make mistakes in passing. Their most used tactic is pretty unusual though, as it is a 5-3-2 formation which includes a sweeper keeper, someone which will undoubtedly be a problem to overcome. I used a 4-4-2 variant of my tactic and got a narrow 1-0 win. Our debutant managed to get an assist as he crossed it from the left edge of the penalty area onto the other side to the unmarked Molesley to score a nice close-range volley with his weak foot. Other than that nothing of note happened in that match. We were 12th in the league in a 8-match unbeatable run (6 in the league) and so I approached the next game against Altrincham rather calmly. The result was a frustrating 0-0 draw. I was very disappointed with the form in the final third – centre-back Dan Bennett was who posed the most threat for Altrincham with his good heading. Nevertheless, I focused on the upcoming FA Trophy quarterfinal against Barnet. As I was losing money I proposed a mutual contract termination to Andre McCollin, who I abandoned early in the season due to lack of necessary attributes and poor form in games I fielded him. He had a nice 17 aggression, but that was about it. Poor decisions and composure, pretty awful work rate and positioning... he just wasn’t of the quality I wanted to potentially get promotion next season and not to get hammered in Football League Two. Andre refused to terminate his contract and made quite a big deal out of it, his morale dropping and him complaining to team mates. I wanted him out of the club as soon as possible. What a frustrating the game with Barnet was! We dominated the game for the whole match only for them to equalize with goals in 89th minute and in injury time. 2-2 draw at home, we have to win in the second leg or else we’re out of the cup. Glenn Wilson disappointed, as did Tristan Plummer. Brett Williams, our leading goalscorer, out injured because of a broken wrist. Great. I’m satisfied though as we won the second leg 3-2, them scoring their second goal very late in the game (83’). After that match, I tampered with training a bit. I had plans for developing a very unusual, strikerless tactic and recently transferred Graeme Montgomery had the attributes to play main scorer threat pretty well, optimistically saying. His attributes are good, especially considering the tier he plays in. The attributes that pulled my eyes the most were, of course, his long shots, but his flair, finishing, dribbling, technique and composure will make him a good attack force in a strikerless formation, and as a bonus he’s already competent at AMC, which will undoubtedly make training him a lot easier. The only thing I’m really concerned about is his quickness, but that’s something I’m aware of and will train him to improve. And he pretty much sucks at heading, but that’s not concerning. I tried the strikerless tactic in the next match, against Welling. We won 2-1, leading 2-0 at half time, and it was a win I was satisfied with despite it’s narrowness. It showed signs of things to come with this new tactic and it’d be great if I managed to create 3 decently functioning tactics, as it’d allow me a lot of versatility during seasons. After analyzing the match I came to a few conclusions: * We intercept passes pretty well – Geohaghon alone made 19 interceptions. * We may possibly suck at crossing – I’m not sure about that one, we’ve completed only one cross during these 90 minutes, but then again so have Welling. I’m going to have to look into this a bit more. * We’re making a lot of key passes (as in, passes that break down our opponent’s defence). * Despite making a lot of them, we’re not creating chances (1 CCC and 1 HC in the match). Jordan Roberts came back from the Chelmsford loan and I thought I’ll give him a chance to start in the match against FC Halifax, one place above us in the league (we were 13th). We were leading 2-0 the entire match, it was nice and I was happy that we’re getting a clean sheet, FC Halifax score from a free kick 10 seconds before the end of injury time. Twats. Putting aside the lack of clean sheets, I’m pretty happy with our form! We are 10th in the league, and we may just qualify for the play-offs if players keep consistency. I took a tiny break just then and thought about the team a little. I’ve raised my expectations and I think I’m able to guide Aldershot to the playoffs, unless, of course, we get a slump in form that disallows us from doing it. I signed an 18-year-old Ivorian attacking midfielder on a free transfer in hopes of him developing as my youth setup is just a joke, with no actual players, only these „shadow ones”. I hope that changes when I get a youth intake. I tried to also hire a Jamaican defence coach to improve training quality but the board disagreed to the move and cancelled the talks on my behalf. I tried to talk them out of it, but naturally, Azeem is a stubborn man and didn’t allow another staff member. Braintree match in the FA Trophy semi-final ended 3-0, left back Nutter scoring two penalties and Tristan Plummer putting a nail in the coffin in second half’s injury time. Followed by an annoying 1-0 loss to Alfreton we’ve only managed to draw the next leg with Braintree 2-2, but nevertheless we were into the FA Trophy final! And guess who we were going to play in the final? That’s right. Our fiercest rivals, Woking. I tried not to think about the cup match and focus on the league games as I intended at the beginning of the season. Matches flew one after another, 1-0 against Dartford, 3-2 against Macclesfield. We were doing great. But then we lost 4-1 against Southport. And then 2-0 against Chelsea Under 21s. And then 1-0 against Bristol Rovers. Not happy. Then followed the Woking match. I was quite anxious – Aldershot winning it for the first time would be a great boost for fan’s and board’s support of me, and losing in the final would be a big personal disappointment. Anyway, we went into the match. First half began. Ended. 0-0. Second half began. Brett Williams scored in the 75th minute. Second half nears an end. Charles Banya scores in injury time. Second half ends. Extra time begins. 105th minute in extra time – Geohaghon’s throw-in near their penalty area. Throws it to Gibbs. Gibbs passes it back. Geohaghon crosses it – Tristan PLUMMER! Shortest player on the pitch heads it into the net! 168cm(5’5’’) tall! We won the FA Trophy! Very happy with that win, quite nail-biting stuff! With the cup out of our way we could put our focus solely into the league. Confidence was high, but looking at the league I know we couldn’t possibly qualify for the playoffs, but it’d be nice to finish the season in good form. 3-1 loss away against Forest Green Rovers. Dissatisfied with the collapse after taking the 1-0 lead. Dominant 3 – 0 win over Torquay. Finally a clean sheet. Josh Scott scored after just 55 seconds. With high confidence we approached the Braintree away fixture and got hammered 4 – 0, but it was largely due to my tampering with tactics. I couldn’t hold myself and it’s my fault. Then a 4-3 win over Wrexham. We were leading 4-1 at half time, so the second half was a disappointment. They were to score the equalizer in injury time, but the goal was offside. Relief. Then a 4-2 win over Chester. Josh Scott scored a hat-trick and the match would’ve ended 4-1 if Jaydon Gibbs didn’t concede a pen. Happy with that win nonetheless. We ended the match in an exhilarating 3 – 2 win over 2nd-in-the-league Grimsby. Brett Williams scored a hat-trick. We then played three end-of-season friendlies against Binfield(3-0W), FC Cherbourg Football(1-0L) and Bristol Rovers (2-1L). This is how our season ended. Before the update ends though, I’d like to briefly mention two interesting prospects from the 10th of March youth intake: midfielder Alex Bell and centre-half Robert Swaby, who are 15 and 16 years old respectively, have gathered my interest as they both have been given five stars for potential by my backroom staff. The two youngsters, especially Alex Bell, have put in some outstanding performances for the U-18 team. I’m interested to see how they develop. I even gave them a chance in the first team against FC Cherbourg football, though it was to be my undoing as, while Swaby only disappointed(6.00), Bell was rolling on the floor exhausted by half time. **** happens. I’m going to treat the summer break as time for me to scout for new talent to bring into the team. I hope you had a good read. Let me know of your opinion, and let’s all have a disco!
  15. Hello everyone. I hope I am posting this in the correct plae. I have a few questions about the editor: 1) How could I create a League with ALL the champions of 7 or 8 European Leagues competing in it? This would be on a par with the Champions League and would be an EXTRA league. The prize money would be substantial, similar to the Champions League. Winners of leagues such as England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Russia, Scotland and Wales. This would give Scottish and Welsh domestic winning teams the chance to make a lot of money and increase their standing. This would be a League, not a knock-out competition. How could I do this? 2) How exactly do I ADD the Welsh lower leagues and make them playable? 3) How can I increase the prize money available in leagues? Thank you guys!!

    MLS & Drafting

    Hi guys, I'm quite new here to this forum, but i'm kinda familiar with editing. I made several fantasy leagues in previous databases but one thing i always wanted to add to these leagues was the MLS system. With this i mean the different conferences, east and west. and of course the drafting. I would like to know if it is possible to add the drafting system for youth players inside a fantasy competition. I want to make a world league again where the teams on different levels need to draft their youth products instead of one date where all the new regens are taken in to the youth squads. By adding this drafting system i hope to make the competition between different teams more equal on the long run cause the every team can pick quality talent to strengthen their squad. I hope you guys can help me out on this one! PDD95

  18. Hello Everyone! I've been playing Football Manager for years, think since 2007 if my memory is correct. From all these different versions i have been able to adapt to the changes which were made to have a fun playing experience. Until now, I started a season with Bury and my aim was to make the play off's. I had a fantastic season and was 2nd for around 38 of the 46 games. In the final stretch to the end of the season i lost form and ended up slipping into the play off's (I lost against Gillingham). I just couldn't overturn the loss of form! i tried everything and it just didn't work. My second season i went to Middlesbrough who were relegated from the Premier League. I had a fantastic pre season, bought all the correct players, set up my tactics, won all my friendly's against better opposition. Then when the league started i couldn't buy a win for the life of me and was sacked in October with the team in 23rd place! in all honesty my team should have walked the league! So, questions 1. Why does a team lose form, what could be the cause and how do i fix it? 2. Any other useful tips you fellow managers can give me? Thank you very much and i appreciate your help. Ryan F

    World super league

    How easy or difficult would it be to create a new competition alongside all the existing competitions, which involved teams from every continent. It could be any format, for example, group stages followed by knockout, a league or a cup. It could involve the same teams every year or possibly involve qualification of the top two teams from many of the major nations taking part. It would run alongside all existing league and cup fixtures. Has this kind of thing already been created?
  20. does anybody know of a decent database for USA leagues other than the MLS? im looking to start a journeyman save and want to load every european league, plus some USA leagues
  21. Is there any way to set league with different number of teams? I have some level 5 leagues (last leagues in system-no leagues bellow) without any relegation and if i implement my "dynamic relegation" system this leagues should have different number of teams each year-based on number of relegated teams from higher level. I can set min/max number of teams but this isnt good enough because i want to set different system- if league have 16 teams this will be normal league with 2 rounds. If number of teams if 18 this will be league with 2 groups and so on. Tried to use "valid years" option in competition section but when i add second file for 1 competition all leagues are in mess. I already had some issues and we think there is some bug in editor after 17.2 patch but TBH i used this option very rarely in past. If someone knows how to set this - please let me know.
  22. So I'm struggling in the 6th tier in Norway even though I'm predicted to finish 8th of 24. I play a 4231 formation against bad teams and a 424 against better teams. I can win a game 5-0 away against 4th place, and then lose 4-0 home against 24th. I just don't know where things aren't working as they should. Tactic 1: http://imgur.com/8B226ux Tactic 2: http://imgur.com/a/jKbji Tactic 3: http://imgur.com/a/Boi57 Help would be greatly appreciated, I can take more screenshots if necessary, of the players for instance. I just got destroyed with my tactic 1 against the team 23rd in the league, I had only 1 shot (not on target) in the entire game, while they had 24 or something.

    Champions Cup

    Is there anyway to get the actual correct grouping of the Champions League in FM 18? PS. I don't even have the correct premier league fixtures and I unticked "Use fake fixtures". I bought the game of off Steam. THANK YOU<>.
  24. After the veritable success of the FM14 Nordic Super League structure - which some of you may remember - I could not help but to create something like it for FM2015 as well. I present to you, the Nordic Superleague! The Nordic Superleague is comprised of six divisions that incorporate each Nordic country from Sweden to the Faroe Islands into its structure. This format is the handiwork of swedish FM player deadwood, whose example here enabled me to swiftly create this league structure. Please do check it out, it's quite good - if you can read Swedish! I've simplified the league structure a tad for my own purposes, and I feel like this is at a serviceable quality right now. To play, simply select Sweden - the leagues will appear there. DOWNLOAD The file is compatible with the 15.3 updated database. Here is the league structure. Division 1 - Statoil Premier League 16 clubs Division 2 - Nordea Nordic Championship 18 clubs Division 3 - TeliaSonera Conference League 20 clubs Division 4 - Nokia Square 4. League 20 clubs each ___________Nokia Sq. Svenska Division 4 ___________Nokia Sq. Norska Norra Division 4 ___________Nokia Sq. Danska Västra Division 4 ___________Nokia Sq. Finska Västra Division 4 ___________Nokia Sq. Färöiska/Isländska Division 4 Division 5 - ISS National 5. League 20 clubs each ___________ISS National Svenska Division 5 ___________ISS National Norska Norra Division 5 ___________ISS National Danska Västra Division 5 ___________ISS National Finska Västra Division 5 ___________ISS National Färöiska/Isländska Division 5 Division 7 (Inactive) Nordic League (over a thousand clubs) So we've got three normal leagues and two divisions separated into Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Icelandic / Faroese subdivisions. For realism, I decided to include the subdivision names in Swedish. Keep in mind that this work is still far from perfect. There are probably some clubs I've left out of this entire league structure, though they won't have any impact on it (tested). I will be patching this file on-and-off when I feel the urge to do so. I hope many of you will find enjoyment from this!
  25. Hi all I have created a fantasy draft group for FM18. The idea is to gather a group of like minded people to play in leagues and cups with custom team building rules and budgets that will differ each time. Leagues will be played over a long time so only require a small amount of time for 1-2 games each week as I know what it can be like trying to arrange multiple players to be online at the same time. Cups will be played either over a week, weekend or side by side a league once the group is in full flow. This is still a work in progress so I am open to any advice, ideas and suggestions. For now it would be nice just to have players join the group so we can move forward with regards to growing and setting up drafts. So please take a look and see if it is something you want to be part of! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/fmflc Thank you for your time and interest. Mak
