  1. Newcastle United Welcome to the FM18 thread for Newcastle United. If you're looking for the thread for previous versions follow the link for FM17 and FM16. After a season in the EFL Championship, Newcastle United are back into the Premier League, back where they belong. A successful season, albeit with some surprises and stutters, managing to lift the title on the final day of the season! Champions! Back into the Premier League Over the next few posts, I'll try to cover the squad, tactics, and transfer targets, and some other stuff that I think will be useful. I'll try not to bore you guys too much! Nicknames; The Magpies, Toon Army Ground ; St James' Park, 52,404 Capacity A stunning stadium, if I do say so myself! Newcastle United Football Club (often abbreviated to NUFC) is an English professional association football club based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The club was founded in 1892 by the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End, and has played at its current home ground, St James' Park, ever since. The ground was developed into an all-seater stadium in the mid-1990s and now has a capacity of 52,405. The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but three years of the competition's history, and has never dropped below English football's second tier since joining the Football League in 1893. The club has been owned by Mike Ashley since 2007, succeeding long term chairman and owner Sir John Hall. They have won for League Championship titles, 6 FA Cups, and a Charity Shield, as well as the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Newcastle United has the ninth highest total of trophies won by an English club. The club's most successful era was between 1904 and 1910, where they won three of their First Division titles, and an FA Cup. The club is the 17th richest in the world in terms of annual revenue, generating €169.3m in 2015. Historically the club's highest ranking on that list was in 1999, when they were ranked as the 5th richest, and second in England only to Manchester United. The club were highly successful in the Premier League in the 1990s and early 2000s, but have been mostly struggling since the 2006-07 season, and have been relegated twice, in 2009 and 2016. They have a fierce local rivalry with Sunderland, and the two clubs have engaged in the Tyne–Wear derby since 1898. The club's traditional kit colours are black and white striped shirts, black shorts and black socks. Their traditional crest takes elements of the city coat of arms, which features two grey seahorses. Here are our lovely kits for this season. The black and gold is my personal favourite;

    Copying fixtures

    I'm playing as Arsenal manager and I've noticed that all my Premier League pre-match analysis reports have the team I'm about to face as having played Tottenham in their last game. I then checked the fixture schedules for Tottenham and Arsenal, as sure enough we play every team straight after Tottenham do right up until the match before we play them, which is right at the end of December. This is obviously not a major issue, but it shouldn't happen.
  3. Hi guys, currently I have been playing two games (with Real Madris in spanish league, and Tottenham in English Premier League). My question is, how do I make my players available for my first team while they are also available for the backup teams? I am aware that in spain your backup team is considered a seperate team to you, while in England it is not a seperate team. Below are the teams I am talking about Tottenham, Tottenham Under 23s & Tottenham Under 18s Real Madrid, Real Madrid B & Real Madrid Under 19s Generally I do not get problems with the two youth teams (Real Madrid under 19 and Tottenham under 18). But I do get problems with the Under 23s team and the Real Madrid B team. For example, I have players in my Real Madrid B team registered for the B team. I also want to register some of them to be able to play in the first team, not many maybe only 2 or 3 as backup. Now when I need these players in my first team maybe I only need them for 1 or 2 games, I play them and then they are sent to my First team and automatically removed from my B team squad registration. In the past there was times when I could not even play them because the B team had a match on the same day, but I have now taken over the B team to prevent that happening. Also sometimes I have players in my first team who are not playing matches recently and I want to try make them keep fitness. I set them on Available for B team but these players are not eligible to play in B team. It says they are not registered. A similar thing in my Tottenham team happens, when I make some first team players available for under 23s or under 18s it says they are too old and not eligible to play. Sorry if this post sounds confusing I tried to word it in a way that you will understand. I often read in real life when players return from long injury they play in B team or reserve team and I have heard this about playrs age over 23. This is the kind of thing I want to do. I want some of my players in my first team available to play for the B team or the under 23s team if they are losing match fitness. And I want my B team players to be available for my first team when I need them. I'm not sure if I am making a mistake by registering some of these players for two teams (Real Madrid & Real Madrid B). I don't get that problem in Tottenham as there is no registration for Tottenham under 23s. I've tried everything I can think of. To register them for only first team, to register them for only B team and to register them for both. But it just doesn't work how I want it to, there will always come a time when one of my B team players is not available for either B team or First team. Currently what I am doing as a work around is using the editor to help me to make players available for my first team who are in these backup teams and vice versa. I have set my squad registration to be allowed to be changed anytime with editor. Any help or advice you can give will be appreciated. Thanks
  4. Hi all, currently at my fourth club in Derby County. Started off with Rangers winning two top flight titles, a Scottish Cup and last 8 of CL. Moved to Newcastle and they were full of Gary Cahill's and Davy Klaasens and couldn't get them going at all so left after eight games before going to Preston which was another sinking ship. Pulled up at Derby who weren't expected to reach the play-offs and romped to the title with a net spend of about £1million which was good. Now moving into the PL and have got rid of the poorer players who were on the fringes and wouldn't make the cut and have signed up John McGinn who I had on loan along with another loanee on a permanent deal in Reece James from Chelsea, as well as James Tavernier after he also impressed on loan. Want to add quality but need players who can help me continue the momentum. Any tips encouraged.
  5. 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

  7. Despite having one of the smallest budgets in the Championship, Sean Dyche once again worked wonders with Burnley FC, leading them to promotion in the 2015/2016 season. However, keeping them in the Premier League will be one of the biggest challenges in football, and that challenge now falls to the inexperienced Joey Baldwin, a shock replacement for Dyche in the summer of 2016. The first transfer window is disabled so for the first half of the season Baldwin is laboured with the squad he inherited from Dyche. However, the spine of the team is perfectly adequate: Heaton in goal, Keane at the back, Defour and Hendrick in the middle with Vokes and Gray the main attacking options. Jon Flanagan is the first choice right-back, Ben Mee plays on the left behind George Boyd while Hendrick and Defour are partnered by Dean Marney in a midfield three. Gudmundsson and Arfield are the right-mid options, while Bamford is also hoping to make an impression while Ashley Barnes recovers from a lengthy hamstring injury. The media are predicting a 19th place finish for the club, and have given Burnley odds of 1000-1 to win the league. The board expect the club to avoid relegation, but that will be a significant challenge, especially given that the first seven fixtures in the league include trips to Old Trafford, Anfield, White Hart Lane and the Kingpower Stadium, with Arsenal and Everton visiting Turf Moor. It could be a very difficult start to life in football management for Joey Baldwin...

  9. ★★★Welcome to the FM17 Southampton FC Thread ★★★ Southampton FC club logo - Nicknamed The Saints, they currently play their football in England's top tier. ★Introduction★ The Saints experienced yet another summer of upheaval and change ahead of their 2016/17 season in the Premier League. It is now the third successive season that departures of key players and managers have hampered preparations ahead of a new campaign, and while the Liebherr family, Ralph Krueger and Les Reed have answered critics in the past many will begin to wonder whether this is the season the Saints will feel the strain Southampton finished the 15/16 season with a highest ever league position finish & securing European football at St. Marys for next season. A fantastic season lading in 6th place and ending just 3 points away from securing Champions League football. Despite this, it was not enough to keep hold of manager Ronald Koeman who moved to an under performing Everton team, along with key players Sadio Mane, Victor Wanyama & Graziano Pelle moving on to pastures new. Enter center stage, Claude Puel. The new manager is somewhat an unknown quantity in England, but having had success in Ligue 1 in France with spells at Lyon & Monaco and more recently having taken Nice into Europe by playing some of the most attractive football in the league, he certainly has the CV to back his new position. Getting the best of Hatem Ben Arfa is no small feat in itself. Balancing the demands of domestic and European football will not be straightforward and Southampton will not want to spread themselves too thin. The combination of a new manager, a heavy workload and rivals hoping to overtake them presents them with a daunting challenge; simply standing still would be a fine achievement. But do not be shocked if the Saints surprise again! ★Who Are Southampton?★ Southampton Football Club are a professional club based in the city of Southampton, Hampshire and compete in the top flight of English football, the Premier League. Nicknamed the Saints, they play their home games at St Mary's Stadium, before which they were based at The Dell. In 2001 the move from the Dell to the new St Mary's Stadium was something of a spiritual homecoming for Southampton Football Club. The club has won the FA Cup once in 1976 and its highest ever league finish was in the old First Division, finishing second place in 1983/84. The Saints were relegated from the Premier League in 2005 ending 27 successive seasons of top flight football for the club. Led by the Liebherr family with club legend Markus Liebherr at the helm, the owners appointed an ex Scunthorpe physio as manager who led the club to successive promotions and back into the Premier league after a 7 years absence. Markus Liebherr rescued Southampton from financial ruin. Markus sadly passed away August 2010. The time away from the Premier League was arguably the most difficult in Southampton's history. Riddled with financial mis-management the club plummeted to the depths of League One with a -10 point penalty. Thanks to the generosity and love of the Liebherr family, a world renowned youth academy responsible for producing the likes of Gareth Bale, The Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Adam Lallana to name a few and the appointment of Nigel Adkins as a manager the club eventually climbed back to the Premier League. ★History★ The team that play in red and white today can trace their roots back to the club formed in 1885 by members of St. Mary's Church Young Men's association who played their football on the banks of the Itchen for 13 years before moving on. Originally called Southampton St. Mary's, the club joined the Southern League in 1894 and won the championship for three years running between 1897 and 1899 and again in 1901, 1903 and 1904. That success spanned some major changes for the Saints as they moved to a newly built £10,000 stadium called The Dell in 1898. Although they would spend the next 103 years there, the future was far from certain in those early days and the club had to rent the premises first before they could stump up the cash to buy the stadium outright in the early part of the next century. The dream of Division 1 football at The Dell for the first time was finally realised in 1966 when Ted Bates' team were promoted as runners-up. It was a never-to-be-forgotten achievement. The most memorable day in Southampton Football Club's history came in 1976 when the Second Division side, managed by Lawrie McMenemy, won the FA Cup for the first time with a sensational 1-0 victory at Wembley over odds-on favourites Manchester United. In 1978 Saints gained promotion back to Division 1 and a year later they were back at Wembley, losing 3-2 to Nottingham Forest in the League Cup Final. Alan Ball was in the Saints team, one of several star names to join the club. The signing of Kevin Keegan, twice European Footballer of the Year, from Hamburg, was a masterstroke by McMenemy, a move which stunned the football world and one that was followed in the 1983/84 season by the most successful campaign in the club's history. With the great Peter Shilton in goal they finished runners-up to Liverpool in the league and reached the FA Cup semi-finals, losing to Everton in extra time. Saints emerged as one of the country's most entertaining teams as second top scorers in the First Division with 71 strikes in their goals for column. Matthew Le Tissier, 24-goal leading scorer, was named PFA Young Player of the Year with strike partner Rodney Wallace in second place. Matthew Le Tissier scored over 100 goals for The Saints. He now works as a TV Pundit for Sky Sports News A turbulent start to the 21st century meant manager Harry Redknapp was unable to halt the decline despite bringing in five new players during the January transfer window and, after a 27-year stay in the top flight, Saints were relegated on the final day of the 2004/05 season. They lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United to finish bottom of the Premier League. The Club was virtually on its knees as administration lingered over Saints for the early part of the summer in 2009. The positive news that everyone had been waiting for finally arrived however, when Nicola Cortese, a man who had built his reputation in Swiss finance, introduced German businessman Markus Liebherr to the idea of buying the Club. The Saints were launched upwards securing successive promotions back the Premier League where they remain today.
  10. Hi! With my current save, my MK Dons side has hit form at the perfect time and it looks like we could potentially make the automatic promotion spots to the holy land that is the Premier League (PL). However, the average age of my squad is 24 and solely made up of Championship quality players and youngsters with high potential. In case we get promoted, I need to have a shortlist of experienced PL players to look at to help boost the experience levels for the PL. Is there a way to filter player searches by Competition Appearances? So far all I can find is the option to filter Domestic competition appearances such as FA Cup, League Cup etc... but no Domestic Leagues. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  11. Here's my formation, roles and main squad: southampton Here's my team instruction: instructions So guys, i'm into my third season with Southampton, so far so good, i won PL+FA Cup on my first year, and i won all of the trophies (5) on the second season including CL, and my squad is based on 17.3.1 update so yeah there's Gabbiadini and i also managed to get Gary Cahill and Moussa Dembele (Frenchman striker not the Belgian midfielder) on my first season so there's maybe not too much changes on my Soton squad. And i've been playing with 2 tactics (the other one is 424 Wide with Winger) and 4123 (Inside forwards) being my main tactic, well i'm wondering if there's any advice or tips which can be applied to my 4123 tactic since it's sometimes inconsistent with chances (too much long shots, and struggling when facing defensive team) I've succeeded (luckily) on winning trophies but i don't believe in "dont fix it if it isn't broken", i believe that changes are needed to be made because i won't spend big on transfer windows like other PL clubs so i'm looking for any "tweaks" which maybe can help my tactic becomes more effective in the next season. Here's my result from the past 2 seasons My first season: 30W 4D 3L 72 goals 10 conceded. My 2nd season: 2nd season table I'd like to play possession+attacking football but also taking caution in the defending because i really avoid being conceded more than any teams on the table . And somehow i really need those advice from more experienced FM player like you guys because i just love to learn something "new" about the game and also if there is any tactical principality that maybe i've quite misunderstood on this game because i need to maximize the effectiveness of my tactic and my players. Are there: any player roles needed to be changed? team instruction to add/remove? any player instruction to add? or any of your insight on how to improve this tactic! Thank you
  12. Hi, I have completed fixtures for: Scottish Premiership. English Premier League I will also be doing: Championship League 1 League 2 I will up date you as an when I have completed these.

  13. I've decided that as an Everton fan enough is enough and I can't watch Big Sam ruin us anymore, so I've decided to start as Everton on the latest patch. Board Objectives for 2017/18: Top half finish Personal Objectives for 2017/18: Top 7 and stay in the fight for top 6 as long as I can Friendlies Pre-season was a success as we remained unbeaten with our seven games, winning 6 and drawing once. AGF 1-3 Everton (Pusic 74 : Vlasic 18, 30 OG 35) Everton 1-1 FC Viktoria Plzeň (Rooney 77 : Kovarik 49) Everton 4-3 Sparta Praha (Calvert-Lewin 9, 45, Tosun 24, 50 : Julius 49, Albiach 51, Plavsic 74) Southport 0-2 Everton (Vlasic 65, OG 74) Cambridge Utd 1-5 Everton (Ibehre 46 : Calvert-Lewin 1, 7, 47, Jagielka 32, Rooney 77) Notts County 0-3 Everton (Tosun 43, 47, Calvert-Lewin 45+2) Tranmere 0-4 Everton (Calvert-Lewin 2, Davies 11, Tosun 21, Gueye 90) Transfers Decided to add some depth to the squad in this window and try and ship out some of the deadwood. Pirlo came in on a free to add some experience and to add a winning presence in the dressing room. Darmian was signed on loan to provide cover for both flanks in defense - option to buy at the end of the season. McGinn was signed to rotate in the midfield with Davies. On the way out permanently was Williams as there was just no space for him in my vision for the club so was happy to have his wages off the books. All the rest were loan signings to either get some first team experience, however Niasse and Schneiderlin were up for sale with no takers so have been loaned out to save some wages. I hope you will join me for the journey.
  14. Anyone know why Leicester City's unrealistic budget isn't that good? I only get the budget of lowly £185k EDIT: Resolved I disabled the first transfer window budget for the first season please close this

    Editing Rules

    Hi I wish to change the rules on some competitions for a separate database, ie: no longer 3 points for a win type of thing or abolish extra time. Is there a way to do this. If I have to rebuild a league I don't mind, but I want to know how to do that then and if all these rule changes are possible. Thanks
  16. World League Challenge (V0.1) Which League are the strongest league in the world? Thats a question many Football fans debats all the time. But with this database you might going to get the answer. What if every league got the chance to pick a all-star team, with both stars and talent, who would win the first season, and who would stand the test of time? V0.1 - V0.1 is a early beta version of the database. - Its only released for getting input to make it as good as possible - Only the 20 best league has been put in the database for now - Cups are not up for running jet. - Finans is not fully up and running FAQ 1: How many players is there in every team? 2 senior + 2 young: GK, DL, DR, DMC, OMR, OMC, OML 4 senior + 4 young: DC, MC, FW 2: Why is player X not on the team, he is way better than player Y? All seniors are pick by the highest CA, and all young are pick by the highest PA. So don't blame the creator, blame SI! 3: Which stadium do the team play on? Fore the most the teams plays on the national arena, also they play in the national kits. 4: Why does Premier League only have the 3rd best reputation? I took the team with the highest reputation in the league, and made it into the league team, deleting all the history. In the beginning its also the club teams staff the runs the league team. 5:How many division will the final version have? As for now I'm going after 3 division, and maybe an other structure where there will be 2nd teams of each countries. 6: Why can't I buy any Players? I Banned the transfer windows for the first year, so its only players in the league that play against each other. Maybe I wil banned even more season, what do you think? 7: Where does the regens from each team come from? Every team is based in its own country, so the regens should mostly be with the same nationality as where their are based. Link: Mediafire - V01
  17. Hi, I promoted with Aston Villa to Premier League. Season has not started yet but once I want to see my U23 team FM just crashes with "17.1.xxxxx error. Can you please help me? Cheers!
  18. June 2011 and Exeter City surprisingly replace Paul Tisdale with unknown rookie Matt Oswin The first season for the new manager results in the 40/1 outsiders winning the league. Exeter spend three average seasons in the Championship before making the play-offs in their fourth, but Newcastle prove too strong over two legs. Just. The play-offs are avoided the following season and Exeter get promoted as runners-up. Early season form is patchy, but the capacity at St. James Park has been expanded. Join Exeter's adventure in the Premier League as they play their first game at their expanded home against Sunderland... https://matthewoswin.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/but-this-ground-goes-up-to-12-k/

  20. So I've started a new game after testing out some tactics with a previous save. I've started a Possession based 4-2-3-1 there are no shouts except for: Possession Short passing Offside trap Low pace Depending on the opposition either exploit the center, or the wings. started with cleaning up the team a bit, sold Elneny and Sanchez(since you can't offer him a new contract) . bought Kasper Dolberg, Mathijs de Ligt and Thomas Lemar. what i want to create is: slow paced possession build from the back creativity clever trough balls I've let the assistant handle the friendly matches because i want players to get fit. and not focusing on tactics. i've played a few games now; (watched them all extended) Chelsea community shield. Neutral p0-0 win (they played without Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez) Bournemouth Away 2-2 (played deeper, defending wingbacks because of the fast paced counters they play) Liverpool Home 3-1 ( fantastic game, possession wise, chances created, and defending) Manchester United Away 1-2 (this was a Stalemate although they hardly created any real chances, finally score the 1-0, Pogba gets a red card in the 60th minute, they score the equalizer from a killer [blind] pass, in the 94th minute Giroud shoots, hits the aluminium, the ball rolls against De Gea, into the goal 2-1) Chelsea PL Home 0-1 (Alexis Scored a rebound goal) (we have the majority of possession, Chelsea get hardly any chance. their leftback (i think it was Azpilicueta) gets a second yellow. but we can't seem to turn the game around. Buducnost Home 2-0 i played a complete B-squad (we had 65% possession, 30 shots far to few CCC's, first goal came from a direct free kick in de 70th minute or so (thanks Lemar) (worrying, but playing a very small league club so understandably they park the bus) Southampton Away 0-0 (this is where is started to notice the problem, because i play slow paced possession football, there is great build-up from the back. but no real chances. the wingers either throw the ball terribly in the box, or go inside (as IF) and get stopped by the wall of defenders) parts of what i want to see works the ball is distributed to the the center back or the wing backs, they build up to the midfielders, to the Advanced play maker or wingers, into the box and either a chance is created or it is defended. the opposition either plays a long ball which is defended by the center back and picked up by the midfielders or striker/winger. then the build-up starts all over again. i have the striker and wingers to press more same with the ball winning midfielder the center backs don't press much and don't close down (i don't want fast strikers or wingers break on a deep ball i play with a offside trap the full backs are one defense because I've noticed the wings to be weak (I've noticed way too many goals come from low crosses into the box to the near post) most touches and combinations go between Ozil and Ramsey / Xhaka what i want to achieve is, just like the actual Arsenal is to play slow paced, possession football, with trough balls around the opposition box. but now there is too much played to the wingers that either go wide (Winger support) or go inside, and run with the ball (IF support/attack) i want them to take time and look for better passing options or, play back and shift the play to the other side of the field. please let me know if i need to give additional information! the general setup is: So I've been tweaking my tactics a bit. to get a bit more depth and dare in the game the first match was against a Sky bet 1 team so a good opportunity to try it out a simple 4-0 victory with some B-squad players. although I'm not happy about the possession % The next match was a great test to tweak some more a Home game versus West Ham as you can see they have had a great run. time to end it. I watched the whole match again and did some on the go tweaking. tighter marking on Sakho and Obiang. the first 2 goals came from corners so that's not all tactics. during the second half, I switched the wingers back and put Lemar as a Raumdauter since Zabaleta was winning every duel. i changed Ozil back to a playmaker role instead of Trequerista, and Ramsey to Box to Box midfielder West Ham created nearly nothing, and most of West Ham's attacking situations we're created from own mistakes or loose balls Seems like the tactics are coming together now, except for the following problem; I seem to own home games, and mid-tier away games.. but I could use some help tweaking for teams parking the bus. playing 5-2-2-1 or 4-4-1-1 any suggestions are welcome
