Afternoon all. I have decided to bring over my FM17 career save that I have been live tweeting about. If you don't know what the idea of the save is then here is a description of the challenge! The Challenge The plan for my FM17 save is to travel the world taking over interesting clubs, e.g Fallen Giants, Clubs I follow, Clubs with interesting histories, etc. For this I have a list of teams that fit into this category. My manager will be starting Unemployed with Sunday League Reputation and No Coaching badges. I will start by loading a few nations in Asia and Africa then (possibly) sim around 6 months to make sure that there are different jobs available to what pops up at the beginning of the game. It will then be a job hunt until a club comes in and takes a chance on me. From there who knows what will happen but I have a few aims and objectives that I want to achieve in the game. Alongside having my list of teams I want to manage the main aim will be to complete my self-titled challenge called "Club and Country Hexagon Challenge" Club You have to win the 5 Continental Champions Leagues, these are: European Champions League Copa Libertadores North American Champions League Asian Champions League African Champions League Alongside this you have to win the Club World Championships Country You have to win the 5 international tournaments, these are: Copa America European Championships African Nations Cup Asian Cup North America Gold Cup Alongside this you have to win the World Cup If I manage this is will be some kind of minor miracle but hopefully this will keep me occupied for the whole of FM17! I want to try and complete this without taking over the usual bigger clubs but we will see how it goes, obviously the first club will be pretty rubbish but as I progress, gain badges and reputation the clubs will get larger but I don't want to take over the usual Man United, Real Madrid, etc. Aas you may notice from the title is called FMREGEN: FULLCIRCLE 2, why the 2 I hear you ask? Well this is my 2nd attempt after my 1st one had a bug where when I added new nations to the game no staff or players loaded! It was an unrepairable bug which meant I had to start again. It was gutting but it made me make a few changes. The main change I made was to add all Nations I wanted to play in at the very start of the game to stop the issue that I had before So here are the nations I am going to use: Quite a few but a nice mix of bigger and smaller Nations over the five continents available. The aim is the same as previous, win all five continental champions leagues + the club world championship and also the five international tournaments + the world cup. Let's hope this save doesn't screw up or I think I'll be jumping off a very tall building!! The First Job As before I have started my manager off with no badges, Sunday League Reputation and unemployed so now it's job hunt time! And it did take quite a while to get a job interview that interested me, I wanted to leave continents like Europe and the Americas until later on in the save so was specifically waiting for a job in Asia or Africa. Interviews came and went and then eventually someone took a punt on me! Amazulu of the South African First Division had taken me on and to be honest this was exactly the job I wanted, not only for the size of club but also the continent I felt is best to start in. We are currently mid-season and in 14th place out of 16 teams which is poor for a team predicted to end 3rd. They did get relegated from the Premiership in 2015 and I'm pretty confident with the squad I have we can get on a good run and be challenging for at least a playoff spot, which is top 3. So my journey starts again! Let's see how well I can do this time. As I mentioned before I have been live tweeting this save without doing a blog on it but that is going to change, I will still be doing tweets but only every month(ish) and will be concentrating on the blogging side of it. I am already 4 seasons into the save so the next post which will be up in the next few days will be a broad overview of my first 4 seasons in charge. After that I will do updates either once or twice a season depending on if there is enough to say and/or I get enough time. That's all from me for now, I hope you enjoyed the intro and will follow along. This is the first time I've posted on the SI Forum Career Section so if you have any tips or feedback for me then please leave a comment
