I'm not italian, not an italian football addicted, but Ascoli is a new "passione". There's not plenty of people who choose Ascoli, actually. Normally, we, the virtual managers, choose that clubs that has a known charisma, a sleep giant or clubs with a hell of a project but that are still to make those large steps in and [maybe off] the pitch and that's not bad at all! But Since I was a kid, playing fifa in manager career mode(we all have been there) I had that finger to choose clubs with a Financial limit, negative balance, and with the expectation to die drowned in the league. That's not dropbox but I will be posting here my progress, my choices, my tactics, all my moves and if someone there sparks an interest, feel well accepted to investigate, opine or just enjoy! (I've already started and will show everything that happened before my "today") P.S.: Made a freak move, bought 9 players in the fresh start and not a hamburguer as I would like with my financial possibilities
Hi guys i'm trying to remove salary cap in italiano serie b, but when i verify the advanced rules an error occured "wrong Number of qualified team (57) found for the competition (missing 59)". I'm sure i didn't change anything but the salary cap, the error occured even if i didn't change anything. Do you now how to fix?
Accademia Rosanero (An Introduction) OCTOBER 1, 2017 ~ TOTALFOOTBALL71 ~ EDIT Welcome to Sicily the home of U.S Città di Palermo and the backdrop for my FM18 save. The Sicillian club have been relegated to Serie B, the 2nd tier of Italian Football after a disappointing season that saw the club finish second bottom in 19th place with just 24 points and a minus 44 goal difference. Quick fire owner Maurizio Zamparini has wasted no time in pulling the trigger and firing manager number 39 since 2002 and appointing number 40, that’s me an English born manager with a life long love affair with Italian Football, however I am under no illusion that the trigger happy owner will be demanding a return to Serie A at the first time of asking meaning I have put together both a short term and long term plan which I will cover later in this article. The Manager For people who already know me they will be aware of my footballing philosophy and influences but for those who don’t here are a few lines about Palermo’s new manager and first Englishman to take the reigns of the Black and Pinks. I was born in Chesterfield although I have never lived there, in the early 70’s (yes I am in my 40’s and yes I feel like I am) and grew up supporting Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest were I developed a liking for passing football “If God wanted us to play football in the clouds, he’d have put grass up there”. With Liverpool, Forest, Ipswich Town, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Aberdeen, Dundee United and Aston Villa having embarked on European campaigns it opened up an whole new World of Football up for me thanks mostly in the early days to the midweek Sportsnight highlights with Harry Carpenter and David Coleman on the BBC, and the coverage of both the World Cup and European Championships I was taking a keen interest in the World game and I liked what I was seeing non less so than the 1982 World Cup hosted by Spain were I developed an affection for the Italian national team. Fast forward a year later I was now watching Serie A and Serie B football thanks to my father’s satellite system and I have been hooked ever since along with my adopted Italian team Milan who back then we’re a Serie B side due to a match fixing scandal. It’s no surprise that I have been influenced by a number of Italian managers and whilst I like my teams to attack on the front foot, nothing gives me more pleasure than a clean sheet. On a personal level I struggled to get anything going save wise on FM17 and it was not for the want of trying but I never admitted the reason but I was struck down suddenly with an illness that not only affected my concentration levels but threatened to change my life and potentially end my working life however with the close support of my family and work colleagues I am now back to something near my best with an horrendous few months behind me. During the whole time I was wiped off my feet literally has I was experiencing Vertigo from between 30 minutes and 12 hours at a time I still managed to interact to the best of my ability with both the game and the FM Community which kept me going through a difficult time. I am now so looking forward to the release of FM18 and committing myself to this save. I will like many use the beta to get to grips with the new features before starting this save on release day on the 10th November. I have put together a brief overview of what I am looking to achieve during the save. Tactics What will I bring to the club? Well I am not going to try to emulate any one manager but what I will do is put together many of my influences to define my own style. In recent weeks with the build up to FM18 you will have heard the word Dynamic mentioned a lot and it’s a word I like very much: Dynamic (noun) A force that stimulates change or progress within a system or process. Dynamic (Adjective) (1) (of a process or system) Characterised by constant change, activity or process. (2) (of a person) Positive in attitude and full of energy and new ideas. A Dynamic system is what I will be trying to create at the club, I have become aware that in football you have to always be looking to make progress within a system with a positive attitude open to new ideas. In FM16 I built a system influenced by Marcelo Bielsa’s days at Athletic Club and called it Verticalita and looking back I think it is the best system that I have created on any FM release and the closest that I could call dynamic. I am looking forward to getting to grips with the new match engine and will be looking to develop a system that incorporates the following: Control the opposition through ball movement Flexibility use different roles and individual mentalities within the same system: example a Deep Lying Playmaker / defend with the ability to change to a deep lying playmaker / support Dominate the central area Build around a conductor Build a strong defensive structure Have the ability to create width in more than 1 way Have a plan B and C Youth Development I will be looking to build a strong youth development system within the club, Accademia Rosanero is the title of this save for a reason and that reason is my aim to create a football factory deep in the heart of Sicily and by that I want us to produce player’s that will not only represent this club but that can also assist the other clubs in this region through strong affiliate partnership. On the whole in the past I have had preference to develop players at the club however on FM17 I experienced the positives of loaning certain players out to give them quality game time so in FM18 I will keep an open mind and access each players needs on a one to one basis. Going back to affiliate club’s I will not only be looking regional I will also be looking to set up an affiliation with a top tier European club and South American club however it will have to be a club who I think will benefit any player who we send them in terms of game time because there is no point in sending a player to sit on a bench. I will be looking to improve the training and youth facilities as soon as possible and will look to bring in the best staff I can on an ongoing basis so we improve year on year. Tutoring our youth will also be high on my agenda with the best possible tutors aiding our development program. Backroom Staff The backroom team are the key to our progress and with rumours of an improvement of the Sports Scientist and Data Analyst roles I am looking forward to building my backroom staff over time. Player Recruitment Whilst my main aim is to develop our own players I will still look to bolster our squad with external players if we don’t have the right quality of player already at the club. So the first option will be to promote within but if we can’t I will bring in the best I can to fill the void. The recruitment ladder : Replace from within the club Recruit an Italian National Recruit an EU player Recruit a non EU player I will be looking to have the best Head of Youth Development coach possible at the club who will be the nearest thing to a Model Professional. The HOYD is the most important non playing member at the club. Scouting I will look to bring in the best scouts possible to build a scouting network that keeps us ahead of our rivals in having the knowledge to pick up the right player at the right time. Scout youth players in Italy Scout youth players in Europe Scout youth players in South America Short Term Goal Like I mentioned above the owner will be looking for us to gain promotion so I won’t be surprised if that’s the expectation in season 1 so in the short I have to look at getting us promoted back to Serie A. Long Term Goals Stability in Serie A Increase the number of Italian nationality players in the first team squad Build a World Class Academy Develop our own players for the first team Field an all Italian 1st team in a Serie A match Field an XI developed in Accademia Rosanero in a Serie A match Break the all time individual club appearances and goals scored records Win the Coppa Italia Win Serie A Win a European trophy Become a club legend by creating a legacy Become Italian National team manager Thanks for reading and if you have any feedback I will more than appreciate you getting in touch. I am open to any ideas that you think I could incorporate in to the save. I will be posting save updates on here as well as my own blog which you can find at www.thewideplaymaker.com Arriverderchi
