  1. The reason for the title will be explained shortly but perhaps not ideal to start with it, it'll come a bit later in this post. I've always wanted to have a career starting with a lower league side and seeing where it took me but never really had the time. I usually play with Cardiff and, as I'm not the quickest of players, I've not had too many other clubs. In my Cardiff save in FM20, I've had fun competing in the EPL and finishing top four but there's still much of a muchness about it, you know? So I've been on the search for somethign new and that's when I stumbled across Work The Space and his magnificent non-league adventure. You can find it here below, and there are 100+ videos in the series and still counting so it's not a quick viewing but well worth it. Last week I d/l the Tier 10 database in the description and decided, with the current situation in the World, I'd finally have time to really get stuck in. I'd just complete my 4th season with Cardiff first. A really good season, finishing 3rd and winning both the FA and League Cups so it was time to put that to one side and give this a go. New save = new avatar and who doesn't want to be like Jurgen Klopp, right? 😏 Having not really done something like this before, I followed Jack's advice in the first video with regards to leagues selected; just England and also Bulgaria for that early season start date. I'd be unemployed and then check which tier 10 teams were unmanaged (there are 100s!), whittle it down to a few and then send off my applications. But who to go for? Should I choose a team I had heard of or had a bit of history? One with a funny name? A club with better than most facilities or a kit I liked? Some money to spend or a bit extra in the wage budget? A nice, big stadium perhaps? So many choices but in the end it didn't matter because, about two thirds down the list, one club stood out from the rest and as soon as I saw they were unmanaged, it had to be them. Welcome one and all to Dronfield Town FC. Why Dronfield, I hear you ask? Do they have a fantastic stadium? No, it holds a paltry 500. A healthy bank balance? Erm, not exactly unless you consider £168 to be a lot. Fantastic facilities then? Nope, just half a star for each. No snazzy kit either, black and red stripes. Only formed in 1998 so no history there. Star players? LOL! An excess in the wage budget to spend spend spend? We have a wage budget of £92/wk and are already spending almost twice that. Eek! The reason I chose Dronfield is a lot more personal than that. It's where my mum grew up and sadly she passed away on Saturday aged 82. She'd been living in a home in London after suffering a stroke 7yrs ago. Long story short, she developed a chest infection on Wednesday and never recovered. As it's possibly COVID-19 related, my brother and I haven't been allowed to travel to visit and we don't even know what's going to happen with the funeral. Giving this thread the 'Bringing Her Home' title I guess is more metaphorically as there's no way we will be allowed to physically bring mum home to Dronfield. Bring it home does have its place in a sporting context so I felt it was apt for this. Anyway, moving on... Application sent and awaiting an interview. In the meantime, here is some more info about the club and the area... The club has a history of going bust but thankfully those days seem to be well behind them, with a number of promotions some 15-20 years ago before seemingly settling in the division I find the club currently in, North Counties East League, Div 1. As you can see from the real life table, Dronfield are struggling a little bit and will probably be a little relieved that this season has been declared null and void. Expectations are somewhat replicated in FM20 with a media prediction of 15th place. Looking at that, it seems quite tight. North Ferriby are clear favourites for promotion but then there's a pretty even spread all the way down to 14th where Hallam are only 12/1 to go up. At 35/1, we certainly aren't out of the promotion race and it helps that two teams gain promotion from our division so I fancy our chances. First of all, though, I need to find a way of sorting our wage budget out. Hmm, I'm getting ahead of myself here, not even got the job yet. This could be a very short thread 😲😁
  2. With the whole quarantine situation, I have quite a bit of time on my hands at the moment so I figured this was the perfect time to start a new FM20 save. I watched an HITC Sevens video recently about large cities which should have better football teams and #1 was Berlin, so naturally this made me want to manage a side in Berlin. I didn't want to start off in the Bundesliga so I introduce you to... With there being no Berlin sides in the Bundesliga 2 or 3. Liga, I had to resort to an extended database so I can manage BFC Dynamo in the Regionalliga Nordost (German 4th tier). The following is taken from the club's Wikipedia page: Berliner Fussball Club Dynamo e. V., commonly known as BFC Dynamo or BFC, is a German football club based in the Alt-Hohenschönhausen locality of Berlin. BFC Dynamo was formed in 1966 from the football department of SC Dynamo Berlin and was one of the key clubs of East German football. The club is the record champion of East Germany with ten consecutive league championships from 1979 through 1988. BFC Dynamo competes in the fourth tier Regionalliga Nordost. In the 1980s and 1990s, BFC Dynamo supporters became known to include skinheads, with far right political views. In the early 1990s, BFC Dynamo gained a reputation of having the strongest hooligan element in Germany. It was the broader BFC supporter scene that managed to rescue the club during its insolvency proceedings in 2004. Today its supporter scene includes Ultra-groups and other supporter groups with various political or non-political views. The BFC has rivalries with Dynamo Dresden and especially Union Berlin while enjoying friendly relations with Scottish side Aberdeen, and partially with Eintracht Braunschweig, Polish club Pogoń Szczecin and Swedish club GAIS. There is far more info on Wikipedia than I can copy into here, but this is a quick overview and some interesting info about the club's fanbase. Sounds like we could have some rowdy games once we get into the Bundesliga. By skimming the webpage quickly, it seems that Dynamo's history is filled with controversy and I would imagine that they're one of those clubs that you either love them or hate them. The Club has decent facilities, but they're nothing special yet. Once we get some money rolling in I hope to upgrade these to bring in the best wonderkids. The board have no specific expectations for the season, but they'd like us to win the league next year then show consistent improvements in the 3. Liga in the years following. The media predict that we'll finish 4th, but I'd like to get promoted as soon as possible because there is not much money in this division and we're the second top spenders in the division on wages behind only Cottbus. Unfortunately even winning the league will not guarantee us promotion. There are 4 other leagues in the German 4th tier and each of the winners compete for the 4 promotion spots meaning that the winner of one of the regional leagues doesn't get promoted. All I hope is that we aren't that team.

  4. (back on my llama for this one) Season 1: Stade Lavallois Mayenne FC French National I holidayed a couple of seasons while unemployed and took over at the club shortly after the last game of the season, with the team having finished 10th after what looked like a pretty uninspiring campaign. There wasn't an awful lot of talent in the first team, except for a good DR and MC, some 'okay-looking' wingers, a few youth players with potential and a very promising left-sided full-back/winger. We had a GK who considered himself too good for the club and wanted to leave - no-one wanted to sign him and he barely played for us all season. We got rid of a bunch of crap when their contracts expired and I was able to ditch a couple of higher-paid crapsters by offering them out for free. That funded my usual raft of signings, mostly sourced through trialling anything with a pulse. Notable signings were a D/LC (ex-of River), two striker rejects from PSG and Inter, a Bosnian U-21 GK, Croatian forward and a Colombian DC. We also re-signed a DC on loan from Angers and got a midfielder on loan (also from Angers) before getting a 3rd loanee in January (from Lorient this time) as backup. Mix in a few other youngsters as backups, and that's your lot. French National One of the most astonishing seasons I can remember in an FM save. We were relentless from start to (almost) finish, solid in defense (we only conceded more than a single goal in 4 games) but creating loads of chances. We scored the most and conceded the least, yes, but we also completed the most passes, created the most chances - >150% that of the next team - had the most shots on target, the highest ratio of shots on target and were also the most fouled team in the league. Yeah, we were basically the T1000 of the French National this season. The only game we lost, the penultimate one, was probably my fault - our GK was on international duty the game before and I forgot to swap him back in; his replacement was just rubbish. P:34 W:26 D:7 L:1 F:75 A:20 GD:55 Pts:85 Pos:1st CHAMPIONS! French Cup We put 25 goals past our opponents without reply in Rounds 5-9 before reaching the 10th Round, where we gave Nantes a decent game and took them to Extra Time before losing 3-1. Summary I tweaked tactics during pre-season; initially starting with one of the pre-set Formation+Style combinations, but dialling things back to something I thought a bit more balanced. The combination of that and the players I brought in just made things work. At the back, the ex-River guy was solid, the Colombian was very impressive with 3 goals and 3 hoof-it-down-the-pitch assists and even our utterly-unremarkable DR did so well I more or less had to renew his contract. Our BBM got 13 goals in 37 appearances (gotta love that 'Gets Forward Whenever Possible' trait), the Wingers got a hatful of goals and assists, and then our top-tier reject youngsters completed the job up top, with the ex-PSG lad getting 22 goals and 13 assists. I expect I'll be fending off a fair few bids in the summer. Our prospect DL attracted quite a lot of attention at times, but seemed happy for me to tell Ligue 1 teams to bog off, while the ex-PSG kid is already 'Wnt' - and rightly so. Youth Intake was pretty "meh". Hard to tell what the overall quality is, since our best players seemed to flit between 'decent Ligue 1' and 'good Ligue 2' and that's usually what youth players seem to be judged against. Also, one kid who the coaches had at 1(+1) Potential jumped up to 2(+1) when I signed him based on his attributes, rather than Coach report. No-one really stood out, and I think I only signed about half a dozen of the players.
  5. Updated for 19.3.0 Lower League Game Files for Hong Kong Editor Files Facepack & Logos Adboard XML Adboard Static Pictures Adboard Video Adboard Video Font File (if nameplates, shirt numbers disappear) Mirror Site on Google Drive (limited daily downloads, no preview) Mirror Editor Files Mirror Facepack & Logos Mirror Adboard XML Mirror Adboard Static Pictures Mirror Adboard Video Mirror Adboard Video Font File (if nameplates, shirt numbers disappear) The Hong Kong Database is a user-adjustable detail-rich lower league simulation. 10 separate editor files offer flexibility with the challenge level. Adboards plus club and competition logos are provided at each level of competition. The Hong Kong facepack contains 693 images of existing players and non-players, 443 images of club officers, coaches, players and officials, and 96 generic faces. Six tiers are provided for promotion within the HKFA pyramid. HK Tier 1 approximates English Tier 5, the National League. HK Tier 5 and 6 approximates English Tier 9 and 10, the County leagues. Cup competitions are tier appropriate with the FA Cup open to all clubs in the pyramid. Four international competitions allow Tier 1 clubs to grow beyond the stature of the domestic league. Hong Kong is slanted towards academics rather than athletics. The youth system will see a significant number of usable newgens coming from the included school leagues. In reality, some recent youth stars are of expat and/or mixed race origin, and there will be usable newgens coming from non-league and/or expat based local regions. Actual Hong Kong football is dominated by a small number of underwriter supported clubs. The provided databases flattens the revenue structure through a self-sustaining league position award system and opens transfer avenues to undervalued nations. The revamped youth system allows smaller teams the opportunity to grow talent and increase their stature, before being poached by larger clubs. Because Hong Kong football is weighted towards the elite few, my gameplay experience in FM16 and 17 saw an easy ride through the middle tiers. To increase the challenge, I balanced the league by adding new players and staff to all existing tiers of the pyramid. These additions are in separate files: one can play with only the league structure, only new officials and staff, or only new non-players and experienced players, or only new officials, non-players, experienced players and new players up to tier 4. Tier 5 introduces a new division made up entirely of expatriate clubs. Such leagues exist in HK at the amateur level. The new tier extends and enhances the actual situation. Tier 5 is optional, but adding it and the accompanying 860 youthful facepack images will extend enjoyment of this challenge without a proliferation of regen faces. Tier 6 represents the actual amateur leagues, of which I have included the most successful teams from The Legal, Union and Yau Yee Leagues. Hong Kong is the world's most expensive real estate market; land is at a premium. Where possible, 7-a-side fields are utilized as reserve stadiums and training grounds. This prevents existing pitches from turning into a soggy mess and delays the want of some clubs to build their own, which in reality, is an impossibility.

  6. Welcome to a Scottish league odyssey managing 7th tier Burntisland Shipyard FC. Burntisland Shipyard Football Club are a Scottish football club based in the town of Burntisland, Fife. The club competes in the East of Scotland League First Division Conference A and play their home matches at Recreation Park. They are full members of the Scottish Football Association. For this save I have used The (Real Life) Full Scottish Pyramid inc. Juniors database created by @Morrissey. Burntisland play at the lowest possible tier of Scottish clubs that can be promoted to the SPL. The aim is to take them all the way to the top of Scottish Football and challenge the European elite. 0 The aim will be to move up the leagues and use any money possible to upgrade the youth infrastructure at the club. Here's the squad at the start of my tenure.
  7. Season 0: Episode: 0 The Boring Part Where We Talk about the Fiddly Bits Club “If you can’t learn to do it well, at least learn to enjoy doing it badly.”—despair.com Welcome to Devotion to Promotion! In these digital boxes I’ll be posting my FM20 adventures as Zilla Blitz, an inexperienced 20-year nobody who has decided to enter the world of football management rather than attempt to, you know, actually play football himself. I’ll start off with no coaching badges, no job, and a smattering of Sunday League playing experience. With this haughty resume, I’ll thrust myself on the football world, grovel for any job I can get, and have a grand old time managing teams in the British Isles. Wait, will there be a challenge of sorts? Why yes, two challenges in fact. I will aim to start my first job in the spring of 2020 with a newly promoted Vanarama South or North team and take that one team to the top of the football world. Doing so would qualify me for the Dafuge Challenge. Given my recent success with FM19, however, I can say with all confidence that my odds of achieving the Dafuge Challenge are slim at best. So when that turns out badly, I’ll shift my career into an attempt to clear the British and Irish Steel Challenge, which aims to win the 50 leagues and competitions available to Irish, Northern Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and British teams, using only players of British or Irish nationality. You might be thinking, “Wait, isn’t that even harder than a Dafuge Challenge?” To answer that, I’d say, “Yes.” I’d also point out that I have not claimed to be intelligent. Onward! However, my priority is fun, so if the official challenges get tedious, my life will morph into a pure journeyman adventure through Europe, questing with interesting teams in interesting places, and living the life of a wandering manager. Will any house rules govern your career? I’m glad you asked, because there are a few. I’m not interested in false greatness, and feel that stories with ups and downs are more interesting than stories of just up. To that, I’m not looking for any advantages. Attribute masking is on, of course. I won’t be downloading killer tactics, no editing the database, no watching videos to learn of hidden wonderkids, no save scumming to get better results. In short, what happens happens, and if that means I spend 20 years stuck in the Vanarama South League, so be it. I hear the bars are pretty good at some of those clubs. How often will you be posting? In addition to managing digital football players, I’ve got a real job and real family, so I’ll be moving at a modest pace. The goal is shortly daily updates five days a week, each update covering roughly a month of one season. That’ll be 10 updates to a season, 2 seasons played in a month of real world time. That’s a pace I think I can keep up. Anything else to know? If you want even more than a quick read, I’m creating Let's Play videos for the career and will post details as the episodes come out. What’s next? Waiting for the official release on Tuesday. Fingers crossed that the next update will have my career underway with job offers from some newly promoted teams in the Vanarama regional leagues.
  8. A few days ago I stumbled upon a lower league team picker for FM09 by @the--dud that I hadn’t seen in years and it got me to thinking about making an up to date one myself So using my (very) limited spreadsheet skills I have made this Lower League Manager Random Team Picker 2020 - LLMPicker20 v2.3 Works best in Edge Browser (no idea why) Offline copy link Essentially it randomly selects you a team to manage in the lowest league possible from one of the countries available “out of the box” in FM20. It’s pretty basic but it does what it is supposed to, although it's not without it's quirks as you will see. (when it first starts loading it shows a random team and then changes to the actual team) If you give it a few seconds to load then your team will appear. I may well add to it if the demand is there but to be honest it took an age to compile and as I suggested earlier my skills are rather limited. Over the years there have been many other versions of the Lower League Team Picker not least the original and unrivalled Frank. More recently there was Paco over at the recently shut down lowerleaguemanager.com which had many more features than my own but was last made for FM15. And of course not forgetting the one made by The--Dudd I already mentioned (I had a rather good time in Slovakia - a country i'd not managed in before - off the back of using his so big thanks to him) As the lower league community has slowed in recent years (the dedicated section on this very site was closed a few years back) I hope this team picker will bring back some happy memories for some of the old time LLaMa’s that still frequent this site and for others who have no idea what I’m talking about I hope you can build from a totally random starting point and enjoy an unusual save in a country/league/part of the world that you might not have managed in before whether you decide to follow the LLaMa ethos or not If anyone is interested in what the LLaMa way of playing is/was there is an explanation in the spoiler below. These guidelines were written a long time ago and as such certain parts may no longer apply or be relevant. Feel free to download and tinker with it, in fact it works better if you download it Good luck and happy travels, let me know how you get on ------------------------------------------ Version history
  9. No Bells and Whistles - LLM Journey Introduction: This save takes me back to how I used to play Football Manager when I had much more time on my hands, LLM. The aims are to play the career as realistically as possible and ultimately, like most players, get to the top of the pecking order by any means possible! I've managed to get some seasons through because I'm currently stuck in lockdown in Gran Canaria having travelled here last week, but luckily decided to bring my new laptop with me. As I've been confined to my room, my career has been progressing and I present to you my first 4 seasons with updates to come! It is called No Bells and Whistles because this is essentially just career updates with some screenshots, if anyone is legit interested and wants to see some screenshots of interesting things go ahead and ask. It's not that I don't want to, it is just that I don't know what to screenshot that will be interesting to everyone other than the fixtures and final standings. Rules: - Play as realistic as possible. - Start unemployed, no coaching badges + Sunday League footballer. - Only use tactics you have created on your own. - You don't use the player/staff search in the game. - Only sign backroom staff via job adverts. - Usage of ANY editor/FM tools are disallowed. - No rage quits, in LLM, losing is often the most entertaining event! - No tactic exploits (not sure if there are any in FM20, but in FMs previous I recall there being a throw-in exploit or corner exploit) - Signings must be realistic, no Brazilians regens suddenly signing to play non-league semi-pro football in Basingstoke. - Use attribute masking. - Usually you would not mention the player names either, but since this isn't LLM forums, I will mention player names. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CAREER SUMMARY Year Team League Final Finish 2019/20 Brackley Town FC Vanarama National League North 5th 2020/21 Brackley Town FC Vanarama National League North 2nd 2021/22 Brackley Town FC Vanarama National League North 1st X 1 VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH 2022/23 Brackley Town FC Vanarama National League 3rd* 2022/23 Luton Town FC Sky Bet Championship 14th 2023/24 Luton Town FC Sky Bet Championship 3rd 2024/25 Luton Town FC Sky Bet Championship 1st X 1 SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP 2025/26 Luton Town FC English Premier League 14th 2026/27 Luton Town FC English Premier League 6th x 1 EMIRATES FA CUP 2027/28 Luton Town FC English Premier League 7th 2028/29 Luton Town FC English Premier League 1st X 1 ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE X 1 CARABAO CUP 2029/30 Luton Town FC English Premier League 2nd X 1 COMMUNITY SHIELD X 1 CARABAO CUP 2030/31 Luton Town FC English Premier League 6th 2031/32 Luton Town FC English Premier League 2nd 2032/33 Luton Town FC English Premier League 4th x 1 UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019/20 - Brackley Town FC Took Over 9/10/2019: P13 W3 D3 L7 GF13 GA19 GD-6 PTS12 - 19th Vanarama National League North Final Standings: P42 W18 D13 L11 GF62 GA57 GD+5 PTS67 - 5TH PLAY-OFFS: LOST in 1st Round vs Spennymoor Town: p1 - 1 > 11-10 FA TROPHY: LOST in 4th Round vs Kidderminster Harriers: 1 - 2 FA CUP: LOST in 2nd Round Qual. vs Morpeth Town - 2 - 2p > 4 - 5 I took over with Brackley Town in 19th, 12 points and en-route to relegation. I initially took them through a good new manager bounce with a fresh tactic, a 4-3-3 with wingers, we went 7 games unbeaten in the league with 3 draws and 4 wins. This ended when we took a 2-0 L to top of the league and future champions, Kidderminster Harriers. We then went through a garbage December picking up 2 points from 12, conceding 17 goals in 10 games. After having a Boston United striker hit 6 goals in a 6-3 thriller past us, I dropped the tactic that I began with and opted for a more defensively-minded tactic as we'd slid from 11th to 18th, just 1 position above when I took over. The new tactic brought us great success, in the 2nd half of the season we won 11, drew 5 and lost only twice. This took us to our entry into the playoffs where we drew 1-1 with Spennymoor Town and then lost on pens. I never expected to reach the playoffs this year as I didn't think the squad were strong enough so the playoffs were a bonus. In the coming transfer window, I cleared out half the squad and the deadwood as they were on high wages and we were over our wage budget by £2,000. I signed some solid young assets and assembled a new backroom staff with some quality scouts and coaches. I expect promotion next season given how strong we finished in the second half of the season and the new additions to the squad.

ROUND VS BOSTON UNITED 2-3e FA CUP: LOST IN 1ST ROUND VS WYCOMBE WANDERERS 1-0 Yuck. What a gut-wrenching season, we managed to break two records in the VNL and yet come second. We beat the record points tally, 107, with 109 and beat the number of wins with 32 wins. However, Chester also managed to do that with 114 points and 35 wins. It was harsh to come second but Chester were very good and every time we slipped up they pounced and widened the gap. Although given 3rd place was 19 points away, I truly though the team would be able to smash the play-offs. I think when it came to it the team looked tired and worn out. We held a shaky 1-0 win vs. Gateshead in the Play-Off Semi-Finals, who finished 5th in the league. We then went played 3rd place Kettering and dominating the opening exchanges but failed to finish our chances and we flagged around the 60th minute mark. At 1-0, we managed to lose 2-1, ending our promotion dreams for the season. It was a good season, but bitterly disappointed we could not get promoted. I signed a year-extension as I want to finish my project off here and get them into the National League and potentially the football league. Despite the record-breaking season, this is a squad in transition and I have to rid myself of the remaining deadwood in the squad. I'm aiming for a new GK, new CBs, a new CM and another striker. A major factor in us not winning this season was having to play the entire season with an RW at ST because my striker tore his ACL in the first game and we didn't have the wage budget to accommodate for much quality up there without him.

COUNTY 2-1 IN R3 > DREW 2-2 VS PREM BOURNEMOUTH IN R4 > LOST 3-1 IN R4 REPLAY. In hindsight, I am glad Kettering beat us in last years play-offs because the quality I assembled in this year's squad was unrivalled by everyone in this league - we were miles above the quality and it showed. Out of the starting XI who started vs Kettering, only 5 started the 1st game of the season. I brought in a great loanee striker who smashed 33 goals in 46 games, finishing top goalscorer, a new goalkeeper who broke the record for clean sheets and two new CBs who formed a dynamite partnership at the back. Using a mixture of free transfers and loans we started with an average age of 22. We smashed our way through the season and went 34 games unbeaten, breaking the VNL record before we lost to Merthyr 2-0 at home at the end of February. I thought we were going to go unbeaten but we were shown up this game and it seemed like the team thought just going out onto the pitch was enough to win a game, it was a sign of things to come I think in terms of complacency. Anyhow, a caveat to this season was our incredible FA Cup run, we got to Round 4 replay having beaten 3 professional clubs from League 1 and 2 and finally got drawn to a Premier League team. The highlight of the run was being 2-1 down at the Madjeski Stadium and my LW scoring a 89th minute header to equalise and take the tie back to our home ground. The FA Cup run secured us huge amounts of funds in the region of £300-400k that saved our financial situation as we were leaking money like crazy. With us out of the FA Cup and Trophy, the league was our only ambition. We won it at a canter with 7 games to spare but then seemed to go on holiday. Winning at King's Lynn 5-0 to secure the league before an odd slump considering how consistent we had been that involved 3 draws, a 4-1 loss to 18th placed Alfreton and 4 wins. Nevertheless, after 3 LONG years in the VNL, we have finally been promoted to the National League. The squad needs a lot of work, we're starting on the backfoot because we will not be getting our star striker back on loan as he has moved on and I have already lost my no.1 DM who wanted £2,000 per week, something I could not afford to give him. I'm not being hugely ambitious and the board also agree that we should be looking at a mid-table finish. They've given me a 2-year contract extension and £5,000 extra for the wage budget so I have the ability to make some moves.

I managed to fend off bids for my GK and 2CBs, brought in 2 new strikers and a DM + some fringe players for depth. We started off playing well but not finishing our chances, we were dominating these games but were not winning them. Two 2-1 losses to Sutton and Chelmsford did have me slightly worried about whether I had overestimated the squad's ability but a win at Havant & Waterlooville brought some confidence to the squad and things started clicking. We went on a 9-match unbeaten run consisting of a 5-match run consisting of four 2-0s and 1 4-0. We were 3rd in the league and looking good. ***RING RING*** I then received a call from my agent, who informed me that Luton Town FC, wanted me to become their manager after inviting me to an interview two weeks prior. They were 24th in the Championship, 16 matches without a victory, a run that stretched back to the previous season. They had 5 points, 7 points away from 23rd and 13 points from safety. I love Brackley, they provided me with my first job, allowed me to go from 0 coaching badges to National A License but this chance was something I could not turn down. A team 3 divisions higher, millions more to spend, better facilities and in an exciting league with a new-challenge. On that note, I left Brackley Town with them in 3rd place in the National League content in the knowledge I saved them from ruin and left them with a brighter future in English football.

What a baptismal of fire. I learned some lessons very quickly about relegation-football having been in a different world with Brackley, winning the majority of my games and coming here where wins were extremely hard to come by. In sum, I tried to go about playing the same type of football I did at Brackley, my 4-5-1 low-tempo, direct, high press with wide mids, inverted-full backs, anchor DM, a ball-playing CB, box to box mid with a central and an advanced forward. I quickly found out you cannot play this way with a team with no confidence. I lost my first game to Brentford 4-2, not yet humbled we then lost 3-1 to Blackburn, still sticking firmly with my tactic we went to Sheffield Wednesday, 23rd and also struggling although 7 points ahead of us in 23rd. They THUMPED us 5-0. I'd be lying if at this stage I wasn't regretting my decision to leave Brackley for the struggles of Championship football. I needed a rethink so I switched up the tactics to shore up the defence and make us harder to beat, even if it took away our attacking intent. Our resurgence began with a 2-2 hard-fought draw to Notts. Forest and then finally our first win, a 3-1 home win to Swansea, a first win in 20 games for Luton. We then went to The Den to face relegation rivals Millwall, beating them 1-0, our first back-to-back win since November 2021 and our first clean sheet in 10 months. A disappointing 3-1 loss to Derby gave me much to think about and I reverted back to my original Brackley Town tactic, hoping now with wins under our belt we could drive forward with the attacking intent that used to win me games. In the next 10 games, we drew 2, lost 3 and won 5 meaning we came out of the relegation zone at the start of January 2023 when we returned the favour and beat relegation rivals Sheff. Wednesday 1-0 away from home. Finally! The board gave me some cash to play with in the Jan window and I bought a championship quality defender who can play left and right back and a versatile midfielder who can play cm, dm and rm. I need this versatility when the quality lacks in this team! In the second part of the season, I switched up the tactic once more to give us some more defensive assertiveness after two 2-1 defeats, 1 to Villa and 1 to relegation-rivals Oxford United. The 10 games that followed we conceded only 4 goals compared to 13 in the previous 10, although the trade-off was a lack of goals, only scoring 8 compared to 14 the previous 10. However, in these 10 games we won 4, drew 3 and lost 3. With 8 games remaining, we were 16th in the league, 10 points clear of relegation. We finished the season 14th and unbeaten in our last 6 games, which were comprised of draws and victories. The main thing is we turned it around and the statistic that stands out for me is the 1st half of the season, we placed 24th; the 2nd half we placed 5th. If we can keep that sort of form up, add some good new blood in, then we can make a run on the play-offs for sure.

  10. I think this might be my first ever tactics upload and I've been a member on here for a good few years. As the title suggests this is a rock solid 4-4-2 for any level of football but I'm using it in the 10th level of English football. Your board probably won't give you any awards for entertainment but in terms of grinding out results they won't have much to complain about. Link below Rock Solid LLM 4-4-2.fmf The main principle behind this tactic was simplicity. My players are dreadful. My PF(a) has finishing of 4. Yes, 4. He's currently the division's top scorer with 18 goals from 18 games. The fullbacks stay back to protect the flanks. The RM is a winger with terrible dribbling so I've got him staying deep and tucking in but still utilising his decent crossing. He links quite nicely with the BBM who links the play and arrives late into the box. All of my BWM's have tackling of under 5 so when I tell you that we have the best defence in the league by far that tells you that this tactic is pretty decent. We win the ball and it usually goes straight over the top for the DF(d) to act as a pivot or it goes long and the PF(a) goes one on one with the keeper. His 25% conversion rate would be a disaster if we didn't create so many chances. Our other main approach is to get it out to the left wing where he gets forward quickly and combines with the two strikers. None of my midfield have more than 1 goal so this tactic is heavily weighted towards the strikers getting the goals. As often happens adjustments are needed. If you find yourself not breaking through (first of all, remain patient) I tend to go one of two ways. If we're getting into dangerous areas but getting outnumbered then I change my fullbacks to Support. If we're not able to get out of our half or the ball just keeps coming back then I move from Standard mentality to Positive mentality. If you're playing against a narrow side then also Go Wider (only if you're not having any luck), I also use this TI if the opposition has a man sent off. I start all games on Standard. I've found that that works well against all opponents. You can drop back to Cautious mentality if you're ahead and approaching half time or trying to see out a result at the end of a game, I do. the only PI's I'm using are Cross from Deep, Cross More and Sit Narrower for the Right midfielder. I'm not using OI's. You can if you want to but be careful, don't overdo it. If the opposition have a playmaker that's causing me problems then occasionally I'll press him harder but I prefer not to do that. In terms of what to look for in your players, I'll say it again, my squad is dreadful. That said, you want centre backs that are strong and can jump. Positioning is a must for all of your defenders. Your fullbacks need to be defenders first. If they have a little acceleration then all the better. In midfield you want acceleration, pace and dribbling for your left winger. Passing, Vision and crossing for the RM would be preferable. He doesn't need to be quick or good at dribbling. Your box to box works best if he can pick a pass and hit a long shot but failing that just someone who has stamina, teamwork and workrate. Your BWM would work best with good positioning and tackling but mine don't (unfortunately) so just play your most aggressive midfielder here. for your DF(d) you want your strongest striker here and preferably someone that has first touch. Your PF(a) just needs pace and acceleration. Dribbling, Finishing, Composure.etc are a bonus. As I've said my PF(a) couldn't finish his dinner let alone a 1 v 1. Something to bare in mind when looking over these results (League only) is that we were predicted to finish 17th or there abouts. Try it and let me know what you think.
  11. Someone can suggest an effective tactic for small teams in minor leagues. Nothing too complicated and something easy to implement as the technical level is very low. A 442 would be ideal
  12. London Titans Hello ladies and gentlemen, it's me in my second post, this will be an experiment on how FM20 and its features, and how I could acclimatize with the game. Since in Vol 1, I reached several leagues dominating the amateur side (from the very bottom), I will redo that in FM20 with the new addition to the game. This will be a test save. I will open the real II edition when all the packs are out (England lower level, that was promoted and will be created by @Dan BHTFC; and the Caribbean Pack that will be created by @Tonao), since I plan to rise the London Titans from the lowest league in the England Pyramid and establish them as the best London team, and the best team in the World. While also helping out DR to classify became a permanent WC team, and maybe, just maybe won it with them. By the way, this save will last only two-three months, and let's set some goals. And as the new vision it will be updated through time. (Maybe I use this save as a long term one, but I'm learning)
  13. The Long Road – Keymer and Hassocks (FM17) Using Dan BHTFC’s English Level 22 mod. Taking a club from the Conference North/South to the Champions league is an FM rite of passage. It’s a test of patience, hard work and your willingness to put up with managing frankly terrible players. I myself have an everlasting love of Dartford, having managed it for the first time with them on FM11. For those who have truly taken leave of their senses, though, the true challenge is to go even lower. Thus I present the craziest Challenge I’ve ever taken on in all my FM days – Keymer and Hassocks. K&H are a pub team about 7 miles North of Brighton, in the beautiful setting of the South Downs. When I say pub team, I mean pub team. Their logo shows a man drinking beer, showing the kind of character that modern football logos lack, designed as they are by corporate design bigwigs. They play at Adastra Park, a lovely Parish green that according to the internet boasts a Garden of Remembrance, a Community Pavilion, football pitches, a cricket pitch, a bowling green, tennis courts, a skate park, children’s play areas, and adult fitness equipment. The description ‘football pitches’ is a bit misleading though as satellite images reveal one solitary football pitch. They start in the Mid Sussex Football league Division 9, from which by my calculations it will take 21 promotions to reach the promised land of the Premier League. Upon arrival, my team looked vaguely decent, entirely made up of young auto-generated regens. This was quickly disproved when I signed the mighty Scott Walker, who immediately made my best players look frankly awful by comparison. I therefore decided to release the entire starting squad and begin again. Believe me, it’s not easy to find decent players willing to sign amateur contracts for a club with a presumably single digit reputation. Still, just about anyone was better than what I started with. Looking up the divisions, I checked out clubs in the higher divisions. To my surprise, I was able to sign players listed as the ‘key player’ from clubs ten divisions higher, in the Mid Sussex Premier League! These players were just as bad as the players I started with though, leading me to two conclusions: 1- The starting reputation of all the clubs across all 10 divisions of the Mid Sussex leagues is the same or very similar 2- The CA of all the players in all the clubs is also very similar. As such a squad capable of crushing the bottom division should be just as capable of the next 9 promotions, with replacements only needed for ageing players or those poached by ‘higher division clubs’ such as those in the heady heights the Southern Combination Leagues and above.

  15. Hello guys! I have started my first youth academy challenge about 2 weeks ago. It was and is an amazing challenge! I will tell you a bit about what i've done until now: i have simulated the game until the reset date for england when teams get promoted to national league north from lower leagues, and i took charge of Kettering Town. First thing i've done was to sign new contracts with all the players i wanted too keep for more than 1 season, because being a youth academy challenge i am not allowed to make any transfers. I have removed all appearance, unused sub and clean sheet fees from the contracts of my players. In the first season in charge, i have managed to reduce the wage, spending only just below £4k a week from a wage budget of around £7.3k a week, we finished 8th, although we were supposed to finish on the last position in the league, and we have managed to win FA Trophy. In the second season i have managet to get into the playoffs, finishing 5th in the league, i have managed to achieve all board expectation both in FA Cup and FA Trophy. In the playoffs we got beaten in the final by Darlington. In the summer thr club had around 500k in the bank balance and although we are still in the national league north, the board -without me asking for such a thing- turned the club from semi professional to professional status, telling me it is because our great recent form and increase in club status. During the summer i have negociated again all contracts with all the youth i have at the club and with the most majority of staff and turned the from part time to full time. I have a wage budget of around £6.5k and i am spending £4.3k. I am still trying to sign full time contracts with 2 of my best players were at the club before i took over and have huge wages. They earn 775 £/week and now ask for 1k £/week. If i can't lower their wage i will sell them. I finished the preseason and just played my first match in the league but i have noticed that we are losing money. A lot of money for this level...40k a month i have check the expenses and 25-30k a month we are losing on Other expenses. I only have a squad of 23 players including those 2 that have not signed full time contracts. Do you have any suggestion about what should i do to save the club from bankruptcy? If i sell any of my players, taking this youth academy challenge i am not able to sign anybody, i will have to wait until youth intake date. Even though the most majority of my players have bigger wages now because they are on full contracts, my committed wage spending is almost the same as it was last year and we are losing money on things that i am not able to control. The club also loaned this summer 500k to rebuild or upgrade the stadium and we'll pay 8k a month until 2031. Waiting for all your tips and pieces of advice.
  16. Welcome to the spa town of Buxton, famous for cheap bottled water and not so famous for their football club. The bucks have been in existence since 1877, and play at Silverlands. It has a capacity of 4000, with 490 seats (some of which were salvaged from Maine Road, once home to Man City.) The squad is average, but most of the talent is on the older end of the spectrum. My backup keeper started the file by hanging up his boots before a ball was kicked! He is now our scout. There is one thing Buxton are unbeatable at: the highest ground, sitting over 1000ft above sea level. This will be a youth academy only challenge, and I will, for once, be making my own tactic. I will also, where possible, promote staff from within the club. Manager is Sunday League reputation, no badges. I have simmed one season to get them promoted! Next update: Mid-season, squad analysis and tactics. Aim for the season: Survival. Fa Cup run.
  17. 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.
  18. WHY PLYMOUTH?? Plymouth Argyle are my local team as I am from near by Cornwall. It was the first team I went to a stadium to see, I was a season ticket holder for a couple of years when they were in The Championship which seems an age ago now though! The club has had a tough time of it since then suffering relegation's, financial issues etc but has stabilised the last couple of years and won Promotion back to League 1 in 2017 and made a late dash from nowhere for last season's Play-Off's but just missed out. I hope to get Plymouth back to The Championship asap, the funds are tight compared to most of League 1 but the club does finally have a stable bank balance so long term finances shouldn't be too bad, Want to also try and keep as much as the real life squad around for the first 6 months/season if possible and build from there.
  19. Woking FC - a takeover So my first game on FM19 will be with the team that were just down the road when i grew up. I am a Gooner at heart but Woking is still the first team i saw live in their relative heydays on the mid 90's. The aim here is to take the side from the doldrums of the Vanarama Conference South to the lofty heights of the Premiership. Club History Woking Football Club are a semi-professional side based in Woking, Surrey. Formed in 1889 the club play at the Kingfield Stadium (Named the Laithwaite Community Stadium for sponsorship reasons) and are nicknamed the Cardinals or the Cards. Whichever you prefer. Now in the 6th tier of English football after their relegation last season, the club is looking to rebuild and in the short term get themselves into the league football season for the first time. A feat the club nearly achieved in 1995 and 1996 where they came 2nd two years on the trot just behind Stevenage on both occasions As you can see there is some cup history with 3 FA Trophies to our name coming in 1994, 1995 and 1997 highlighting how dominant Woking were in non-league football at one point. It was during this time that Woking famously took than Premiership side Coventry to an FA Cup 3rd round replay where a last minute goal prevented the tie going to extra time. Finances Finances are especially key in non-league games as you need the money in order to make the jump from semi-professional to professional status. I am pleased to say that the club are in the black and are looking pretty good with £160k in the bank The finances mean we can go and add some new players to the squad with an extra £2k or so per week available to offer to new signings but we will have to make do with no transfer fee budget for the time being. Expectations Having been relegated last season, i was expecting relatively high expectations by the board and i wasn't too wrong as the Board demand we finish in the play-off spots (Top 7) which nicely aligns with the Media's pre-season expectations where they predict us to finish in 7th as well However, as you can see the odds between 2nd and 7th are exactly the same, meaning it will be tight. Relative moneybags Billericay are going to be tough, whilst Welling had a decent squad and Torquay have history of being a League side so shouldn't be underestimated either.
  20. The Mission Take a club from the 9th level in the English pyramid all the way to the Premier League. The Manager The Club NORTH GREENFORD UNITED As you can see, the board expectation is fairly ambitious considering we're predicted to finish smack bang in the middle of the table. I'll have to be smart from the outset to upset the odds. The Squad It's not much to write home about. In fact when you dig deeper its even worse than that. A new sitter in midfield is a must and some cover in that area is pretty urgent too. We have 1p available in wage budget. Yes, you read that right. One Pence. The budget is £201 and we're spending £200. Luckily we're semi-pro and I'll probably be able to bring in some players on non-contracts and possibly a couple on loan. I'll still have to be careful with the money situation though, don't want to get a reputation as a club wrecker. We don't have an affiliate club and its not something that I am that interested in but if things get really bad I might have to bite the bullet and see whats out there. Our best player is this guy: I'll probably be playing him as a number 10 in a 4-4-1-1. This is a very rough draft of a tactic. I've given it very little thought at all at this stage and just stuck my best players in their best positions and where possible tried to give them their best duties and roles. This will not only change over pre-season, this will be a work in progress throughout the save. I think that'll be it for the first post, sorry for the length. First time I've tried my hand at this. Hope it goes well.
  21. IS HALMIA INTRODUCTION LLM This career update will be in the style of a classic LLM report, which unfortunately are rare on this forums these days. This means that I will not give any information regarding specific tactics (might drop some positions names) or specific players. Instead the story will focus on my travels across lower leagues. Updates will be done once or twice a season depending on how interesting it is, and how much time I have. THE ORIGINAL HALMSTAD TEAM IS Halmia is a classic Swedish team from Halmstad in south west of Sweden. Founded in 1907 as a merger between two smaller teams, IS Halmia went on to become the first team from Halland to ever get promoted to Allsvenskan - The Swedish top tier - in 1932. Nowadays, the team is far from its former glory, rotting away in Division 2 Västra Götaland, the 4th tier of Swedish football. The glory is gone, and the team is now promptly in the shadow of the rival Halmstads BK. Home games are played on the classic arena Örjans Vall. Built in 1922 and named after a medieval hospital, Örjans Vall have 15 500 seats, giving Halmia a good home ground to build upon. It will take sometime to fill it, as there is an anecdote about Halmia saying that for every home game the only vehicles outside Örjans Vall is a bicycle and a limousine, belonging to their only fans. The bike belongs to the ground janitor, while the limousine belongs to Per Gessle, famous for being part of the duo Roxette. The main goal of the save is to take back Halmia to their former glory of being the best team in Halmstad and Halland. Hopefully we can crown it with the club's first titles. But if I know my LLM experiences, I will be sacked halfway into season 2. To be continued...
  22. First, this is my first attempt at a thread on this forum and as I get bored easily it may not last, so this is a way for me to try and keep me focused. Also it will be very narrative driven, inspired by the thread A Jewel From Edena by @King Cactus (hope you don't mind the mention). Anyway enough rambling on with the story, a journeyman based upon one mans desire to recreate the great teams of the Sir Alex Ferguson era. Entry One: I've been called obssesive, addicted, dedicated, all the words to do with this. I've also been called several less nice things, but they don't matter, then again I don't think my mental state matters but who am I to judge. Anyway where to start? I am Luke Rose, as mancunian as they come. 27 Years old with a chequred childhood and time spent on the streets, I've only ever had one dream. Wait thats just my impassioned plee for help I have always wanted to be involved in football. I had been in the Manchester Uited academy since I was 11, but at 18 I was tossed aside, a worthless Target Man. At the end of that season it will have been ten years ago. But today, I start a new job, a new chapter. I have been doing my coaching badges, working with youth teams throughout manchester, some proffessional, some amateur whle studying my coaching badges. Then there was an oppertunity, one that couldn't be missed. A chance to begin my career and mabye take my mind off this coathanger I'm spinning. P.S: This is one out of three in short succession (I really should've made the forum, then started the career).
  23. Lower League Game Files for Hong Kong Editor Files Facepack & Logos Adboard XML Adboard Static Pictures Adboard Video Adboard Video Font File (if nameplates, shirt numbers disappear) Mirror Site on Google Drive (limited daily downloads, no preview) Mirror Editor Files Mirror Facepack & Logos Mirror Adboard XML Mirror Adboard Static Pictures Mirror Adboard Video Mirror Adboard Video Font File (if nameplates, shirt numbers disappear) The Hong Kong Database is a user-adjustable detail-rich lower league simulation. 10 separate editor files offer flexibility with the challenge level. Adboards plus club and competition logos are provided at each level of competition. The Hong Kong facepack contains 699 images of existing players and non-players. An additional 2372 images of club officers, coaches, players and officials are included. Six tiers are provided for promotion within the HKFA pyramid. HK Tier 1 approximates English Tier 5, the National. HK Tier 5 and 6 approximates English Tier 9 and 10, the county leagues. Cup competitions are tier appropriate with the FA Cup open to all clubs in the pyramid. Four international competitions are introduced to allow Tier 1 clubs to grow beyond the stature of the league. Hong Kong is slanted towards academics rather than athletics, so the youth system will see a significant number of useable regens coming from included school leagues. In reality, some of the recent youth stars are of expat and/or mixed race origin, and there will be useable regens coming from non-league and/or expat based city regions. Actual Hong Kong football is dominated by a small number of underwriter supported clubs. The provided databases flatten the revenue structure through a league position award and taxation system, and open new transfer avenues to undervalued nations. The revamped youth system allows smaller teams the opportunity to grow talent and increase their stature, before being poached by larger clubs. Because Hong Kong football is weighted towards the elite few, my gameplay experience in FM16 and 17 saw an easy ride through the middle tiers. To increase the challenge, I balanced the league by adding new players and staff to all existing tiers of the pyramid. These additions are in separate files, so one can play with only the league structure, only new officials and staff, or only new non-players and experienced players, or only new officials, non-players, experienced players and new players up to tier 4. Tier 5 introduces a new division made up entirely of expatriate clubs. Such leagues exist in HK at the amateur level. The new tier extends and enhances the actual situation. Tier 5 is optional, but adding it and the accompanying 860 youthful facepack images will extend enjoyment of this challenge without a proliferation of regen faces. Tier 6 represents the amateur leagues, of which I have only included parts of The Legal, Union and Yau Yee Leagues. In FM17, my amateur league included all their divisions, but it made the groundshare stadiums into a soggy mess. So, for this version, I include only the top amateur divisions. One will have to extend disbelief into new stadiums. As the world's most expensive real estate market, land is at a premium. Where possible, 7-a-side fields are utilized as reserve stadiums and training grounds. This prevents the soggy mess situation previously referenced and delays the want of some clubs to build their own, which in reality is an impossibility. Until FM18, Hong Kong regens had mainland chinese names and surnames. Romanization rules are different for the two territories. While this problem has been fixed, one can still see the wacky english names chosen by Hong Kongers. A separate name database is included, if one wants to flood the pitch with the fanciful, so to speak. Type 'hong kong english names' into a search engine for some laughs. Playtesting (twenty years) In world rankings, HK Premier League is below English National League, Irish Premier, German Regional, French Nations 2, Turkish League 2 and above Croatian League 3, Malaysia Super League, Polish Second Division. Hong Kong T5 is on par with Icelandic Third Division, Dutch Zaterdag and Zondag, Swiss Second League Interregional, English County Leagues. In terms of FIFA world ranking, after twenty years Hong Kong is ranked 62nd between Kosovo and Lithuania. Within Asia rankings, HK sits between South Korea and Uzbekistan. Within Asia conferences, HK Premier League sits between Kuwaiti Premier and Thai League. After twenty years, the starting five financiers disappeared. All clubs were at a minimum of finance ok. Some of the lower tier teams were running in the red. Top tier turnover ranged from 1.2m to 4.9m. Average attendance increased from a range between 1330-2380 to 2100-7500 while T2 attendance trended down from a range of 630-1880 to 280-1850. Offside.hk reports Premier League budgets from 600k to 4 million GBP. After twenty years of gameplay, the annual wage of Tier 1 clubs is 514k to 1.3m GBP. The annual wage budget of T2, T3 and T4 excluding top and bottom clubs are between 105k to 550k, 52-350k, 35-303k.

Attendance and reputations are normalized. Existing sugar daddy and underwriter clubs continue to be. Sponsorships were normalized to a minimum level and compensated for with division performance awards. Recruitment and Youth Academy ratings are normalized down from a world class level down to a reputation appropriate level; compensation is through a higher youth rating which allows lower league teams to purchase higher levels for thousands rather than millions. A new expat league is added to form T5. Current expat and locals continue to play in the amateur division of tier 6. One T6 division is semi-pro and can be used to climb the ladder for the ultimate lower league challenge. A pyramid system is introduced. Traditionally, semi-pro clubs refused promotion to the professional Premier League, historically, some placements have been arbitrary. T6 Non-league (amateur) clubs can now be promoted to the HKFA through a playoff system. T7 and T8 represent for-profit football academies, secondary schools and the university league. T9 contains non-league clubs. Finances The database weights league vs cup competition to provide 75/25% of turnover. This is a predictable income scheme for lower level clubs. A taxation scheme is introduced to keep the rich from getting too wealthy. So, there is a path to break into the middle ranks. However, it is hard to consistently compete against Premier League underwritten sides. Cities/Local Regions Modified to a total of 199 cities to include proper inhabitant range, latitude/longitude, altitude, weather, and attraction level as a function of proximity to the number of MTR subway lines and/or (express) bus routes. Modified 59 local regions. 18 HK regions now have proper population and weather. Others are in-country expatriate regions and foreign expatriate regions that models the Hong Kong diaspora. Stadiums Only HKFC, South China, Govt support service associations, and academy/schools own pitches. HK pitches are groundshare with assignments managed by HK Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD). Added T1-2 alternate stadiums to lower level clubs. Added and modified 212 stadiums and fields to include correct latitude/longitude, seating, capacity, city, seating color, pitch dimensions and type, build and modified date where available, and condition. LCSD database and Happy Valley facility map were used as reference: 7-a-side facilities converted to reserve/training pitches and 11-a-side pitches were added/modified.

  24. Welcome to FC Kotayk Abovyan, the most famous team in all of Abovyan (with its massive population of about 44 000). Why are we here, in Armenia, you may ask. Some of you may remember a vote that I did several months ago for my next FM save. Since then, and after a 5 month long break from the game, I'm back with the newest version of the game and am ready to make all of Armenian football better. Plan for the save Get promoted to the Armenian High League Qualify for European football Achieve dominance within Armenia Improve the league's reputation through European performances Improve other teams in the league to be make other teams competitive in Europe Make the Armenian High League the most famous league in the world Disclaimer: I'm using a skin with Instant Result, so when we attain dominance in the league, I will probably IR the majority of league matches
  25. Hello All, So recently I decided to record some youtube content about Football Manager. I created a series last year called To The Prem which followed me through the lowers leagues in my quest to get a non-league team to the Premier League. Since I took part in the FMWEC tournament, I decided I would start up again my To The Prem series. We are currently in Episode 3 I hope you enjoy. I also have other FM content on my YouTube so please give my video's a like and subscribe to my channel and I hope you enjoy my series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmRU3vyLttg&index=3&t=0s&list=PLDnv4ynWO6HlgmWoGWhcs4OA9YoDHaSsj
