  1. FM18 All-European (Less England) Small Club to Big Club Challenge Introduction Welcome to a new chapter in the history of the ‘Euro Nation’ Challenge, born out of the recent history of the highly successful Gundo’s Challenge and the Big Euro Nation Challenge that spawned out of it. Originally set up as an alternative to the hugely successful Dafuges Challenge for FM06, Gundos Challenge offered an alternative for people who wanted to play in another European country. The Big Euro Nation Challenge followed for FM08 and, like Gundo’s Challenge, has had some fantastic stories over the years. These threads have always been hugely popular and successful thanks to those who played, and who still take part, in the challenges. Some of the stories are legendary, and hopefully more of these will be born in this, and future, versions of the game. The premise of the challenge is the same, and simple, to start with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to winning the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, providing a great atmosphere and stories for our users to become immersed in. General Challenge Info Possible Countries Austria Belarus Belgium Bulgaria Croatia Czech Republic Denmark Finland France - June 20th Germany Greece Holland * Hungary Iceland Ireland * Israel Italy - July 30th N. Ireland - 25th June Norway - January 13th Poland Portugal Romania Russia Scotland Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain - July 10th Sweden - December 15th Switzerland Turkey Ukraine Wales * Holiday for two seasons not one.

B) Steps in the Game 1) Add an unemployed manager; you will not use this man to manage your club. I like "Unemployed Man or Holiday Man" 2) Go on holiday until the reset date of your chosen nation (Should take about an hour) TIP - Changing Detail Level to None will make it go faster. (Remember to change it back afterwards) TIP - Saving on the day before this date may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this. 3) Add a new manager - Use yourself, or a created character to help build a story line a) Personal Details - Your Choice b) Tracksuit vs. Trainer - Your Choice c) Past Experience lowest Possible (Generally Sunday League) d) Coaching Licenses lowest Possible (None) e) Other options are up to you TIP - If you add the language of your country of choice it will make it easier at the beginning TIP - Training now includes you at some level depending on your abilities. 4) Choose to take over any club which has been promoted to the bottom playable league of your nation.

(This is another warning for those of you who do not wish to see this) Expected Updates We have minimum expectations when it comes to a first up post and also in the end of season updates. The Bold pages are necessary for everyone; the others are some suggestions that will get others interested in your posts and following your club. All other screenshots are welcome and encouraged, but we please ask that the majority are posted as links, because lots of pictures can make the page very slow to load.

(You can also edit this in the shortcuts options) The Euro Nation Motivational I would like to thank all of you who choose to participate in this thread this year, and to wish everyone taking on this challenge the best of luck on a long and hard journey to managerial success! I have personally had a number of hugely enjoyable saves over the years, first in Gundos challenge and then latterly in the Big Euro Nation Challenge. The atmosphere and support these threads have historically offered is key in making the thread, and your saves more enjoyable as I can testify to. I and some of the other regulars of these threads are here to help for the new challengers and hope everybody that participates contributes considerably to the thread. There is nothing better than getting immersed not only in your own game but providing the encouragement to other people's attempts too. Remember we are all fighting the same battle - to defeat the AI (and uncover fabulous newgens!) - Therefore it goes without saying that any form of cheating will be severely chastised. Don't do it! I know that it is painful to lose a European Final or to lose the title on the final day (I have been there myself on more than one occasion) but eventual success down the line is all the sweeter for those defeats. Good luck to all the participants – Here’s to a successful (and enjoyable) version!!
  2. Hello! First apologize to the English-speaking users, for my horrible English. I am working on making the complete pyramid of the Spanish leagues, it would be up to 9th level. At the moment the database is created with the clubs, more than 4000 , and their respective regional competitions. This is how easy. Now I am editing the rules so that the system can work. And I'm have problems. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/stats/1303325418 1º In some competitions they are divided into groups. My question is: How to make the composition of these groups with certain teams for a specific year? For example. That in the year 2017 Group 1 are the teams A, C, H, K, ..., in Group 2 the teams B, S, T, ... and in Group 3 the teams E, I, J , ... 2º In Spain, there are two leagues in level 5 (Ceuta and Melilla) where the winner of the league promotes only if there are no teams from that city (Ceuta or Melilla) in that level. Is ist possible to create this rule? Thanks for your help and your participation.
  3. Well, we are now heading into the ninth year of this challenge. It has been an incredible six years around here with some great stories, clubs, and players. Rlipscombe, Iacovone and Myself are looking forward to another great year. This challenge is similar to dafuge's, Gundo's & others, starting with a previously unplayable club and taking them all the way to a National Title and then on to the European Champions League. With a variety of leagues, styles of play, different rules, and many different locations for your clubs there can be a lot of variety throughout the thread, a great atmosphere and fun with all our users.

  4. Hi I'm currently managing athletic Bilbao, and have noticed that all the Basque players I can buy are from Africa and Asia (I'm not saying that's not possible) and don't come through youth development in Spain/France. I regularly search through all the Basque clubs but they only ever develop Spanish (or French in France) players and not ones with joint nationality with Basque country It would seem reasonable that the Basque teams should develop a reasonable amount of players with joint Basque nationality The teams I search are: Real Sociedad (produce an odd one) and B team, Alaves (none), eibar (odd one), osasuna (none) and their B, Amorebieta; Arenas Club; Barakaldo; Gernika; Leioa;; Real Unión; Vitoria (all none!) Thanks
  5. Hi I'm playing in the Spanish lower leagues, in my first season with Gernika (I started unemployed...don't know if that matters) I didn't get entered into the Spanish cup nor the federation cup...so effectively I only played league games In my second season I got entered into the Spanish cup, but not into the federation cup (I was still in the B league, so should of been) Screenshots attached
  6. Hi all, After some time away from the game, as real life took over for a bit, I began to think about what sort of ideas I could come up with for my next career update. I've never managed in a major nation on any FM, so I thought I would give that a try this time around. I settled on Spain, and began formulating my plan. It is 2017, and Rafael Nadal, 15 time Grand Slam tennis champion and the undisputed King of Clay, has called a surprise press conference after being knocked out early at Wimbledon again. There is major speculation as to what it could be about. "Thank you very coming today, I really appreciate it no? Uh as most of you know, for me, is getting harder to play at my best level of tennis no, with those injuries for my knees, and feet, is very difficult no. I talk with my coach and my team and uh, I think now is right time to walk away from the sport no. I'm very grateful for everything that tennis has done for me and I'll never forget the support of the fans everywhere, for me is most important thing no, to never forget that. Reporter: "So what's next for Rafael Nadal, are you still going to be involved in tennis in any way? "Well I love tennis no, is impossible for me to not be involved, I still have my academy in Mallorca so my coach Toni will be taking care of that, but now I have major plans for a different sport. Football is very important part for me and my family no, my uncle had a successful career and it is because of him that I made this decision. I have become major shareholder for my local club, C.E. Manacor and have decided to put most of my efforts into making them as successful as possible no. I have already upgraded the training and youth facilities, as the team will be sharing with my tennis academy which also has football training grounds. I have decided to start getting some qualifications to no, I have had experience in playing football, but is very different from coaching no. So I'm here to announce myself as the new manager of Manacor, but until I get the necessary qualifications most of the on field decision will be made by my uncle, Miguel Angel Nadal, who has accepted my offer to become the Assistant Manager of Manacor. Thank you very much for your time. And with that bombshell, the Spanish Bull departs a rectangular grass court for the final time and sets off back to Spain for a game played on a bigger rectangular grass 'court'. Basically I made an attempt to incorporate one of my favourite sports into Football Manager, and with a little football relevance as well. Rafael was supposedly quite the footballer when he was younger, representing his island at U14 level. His uncle is also considered one of the best Spanish defenders of all time, representing them at 3 World Cups and having a strong career with Barcelona and Mallorca too. Now onto the rules. - Only buy Spanish players, specifically those from the region of the Balearic Islands. There are 50 cities according to the editor, the biggest of which are Mallorca, Palma, Ibiza and Minorca. I'll set up a transfer filter for that. - .... I guess that's the only rule I've used the editor to boost the finances/facilities a bit, as he has a significant net worth i put in about 20 million pounds as a starting balance, and increased each facility category by 10 so they aren't maxed out, but range from 13-17. Here's a bit of info on the club: Division: Tercera Division Group 11 Established: 1928 Nickname: El Toro Salvaje (The Raging Bulls) - I changed this one to suit. Status: Professional Estimated Value: $37.7M Training Facilities: Superb Youth Facilities: Excellent Junior Coaching: Good Youth Recruitment: Well Established Stadium: Na Capellera (4,000) Fierce Rivals: C.D. Serverense Media Prediction: 5th Manager Profile I've given him a National A license as a semi-pro football, and the stats I think are as fairly accurate. Doesn't offer much in the coaching department, but mental and fitness coaching is where he is strong and can translate that from tennis. Maxed out his determination to reflect reality too, as he exemplifies that on court. As for the tactic, it is not my own, it is a slight adaptation on @smp20's Arrigo Sacchi tactic that brought him much success in his careers. I was so fascinated and impressed by this tactic, at how vicious it could be on the counter and relentless in defence as well. What better way to describe Rafael Nadal? His ability to turn defence into attack in one shot as well as his ability to close down even the most seemingly impossible to reach balls and return them. So I figured that this tactic is essentially his on court strategy personified on a football field. For those who are interested in the workings of this tactic and the philosophy around it here is the link: https://community.sigames.com/topic/394975-every-country-are-you-nuts/?do=findComment&comment=10646315 I downloaded the Spanish leagues off the Steam workshop, but you can get it here: https://www.fmsite.net/files/file/682-tercera-división-de-españa/ That's it really, hopefully this will be a bit of fun! Squad update coming up next.
  7. Introduction Welcome to my second FM18 thread. Forgive me for my love of alliteration. This will be a wordy introduction but I'll be getting to my usual style with screenshots soon. I’ll be returning to what I like to do best here: a single club career, with a focus on youth development, and in Spain, which is my favourite place to manage in Football Manager. It will be (at least slightly) different than before, though. While the inclusion of B- and even C-teams in the main league pyramid is not for everyone, I for one am a big fan of it. That is why for this save I will not only be taking over the first team of a club, but also the B and C team, with different managers. Since, if you did not know already, in Spain the B and C teams are represented faithfully in game as separate clubs. Most of the time these B and C clubs are former independent clubs taken over by a bigger club in the neighbourhood to be used as a feeder team. There are also remarkable stories with this, like in Malaga. The main club was bankrupt, so the former B team became the main club – and still is to this day. If I do this with three managers I have total control over the three teams and its players, and can really follow their development up close. Of course you do have to play a lot more matches per season (praise the IR button!) and there can be a few issues in FM since I don’t think this is exactly what they had in mind. At least in FM17, where I tried a save like this out for a few seasons, the contracts of the B and C team managers couldn’t be renewed even though the board offered new contracts. The only way to circumvent that issue was the use of the IGE. I don’t know yet if this is fixed for FM18, we will see I guess. To be able to do this at all you need more Spanish leagues than are in the vanilla version. The highest C clubs play in the Tercera Division, the fourth tier of Spanish football. There are five of these: Villarreal, Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao and Las Palmas. (in previous times Real Madrid, Atletico and Barcelona all have had C teams but have since given up on them for a variety of reasons. Messi played his first league matches for the C team for instance). But I’ve decided to go for a different route. When you go further down the Spanish pyramid, you’ll keep on noticing a ton of B teams, but also a few C teams here and there. Some amateur teams even have D teams in the real life pyramid, but I did not found those in the database I have downloaded (from fmsite.net if you are interested). That database goes to down to the Cuarta regional, the 9th and lowest tier of Spanish football. There are relatively few tiers but the Spanish league system has a remarkable amount of regional sub leagues on each level (4 on the third tier, 18 on the fourth tier and much, much more on lower tiers). The lowest possible I could’ve gone was for a semi-pro club, C.F. Trapagaran, whose main team play in the 6th tier, the B team in the 8th and the C team in the 9th. Perhaps that would’ve been an awesome challenge, but a little bit too daunting (I also do not particularly like semi-professional management) – added to the fact that going this far down you have thousands of clubs and hundreds of leagues, and it just was a bit too slow, even on a pretty good computer. So I’ve gone for one that I find interesting – a decently big professional club, Tenerife. Their main team plays in the Segunda Division, and they are (obviously) based on the Island of Tenerife. Their rivals are Las Palmas, the other big Canary Islands team, who have done incredibly well over the past few seasons and built themselves up, higher than Tenerife. Tenerife’s B team plays in the Tercera division, and their C team plays in the Segunda Regional, the 7th tier. In the database I’ve downloaded that team plays in a Catalan league, which seems very incorrect but that doesn’t matter too much for me, they should be moving on soon any way. To create a bit of a narrative I’ve decided that the three managers will be three brothers. With Andorran-Dutch nationalities, obviously. The elder brother, a certain Marc X, you might be familiar with already. Let me introduce you to his siblings: Benito X, a younger brother and manager of the B team and Xavier X, the manager of the C-team. All the three managers will stick at their clubs for the duration of this save, is the plan. Don’t expect crazy narrative stuff from me like some of the legends on this board, but it’s just a little bit of a fun added thing in the thread. Strategy, Limitations, Style of Play Now onto the way I am actually planning to do this save and post here. It will not be 100% youth only, although all youth prospects will be signed every year and a lot of them will be given chances in the C and/or B teams. As for players I am signing, I have decided to take a little bit of a different route. I will allow myself to buy players, but only from nations that I consider unlikely to have great players – the weaker nations internationally. These can be nations like Andorra, San Marino etc from Europe, or Bolivia, Mozambique, Cambodia, etc. To make sure that a lot of these nations actually have players (and newgens) I have loaded a lot of these nations’ players in the custom database settings. I have not loaded their leagues but the domestic Claassen updates are loaded so that the clubs and leagues should be somewhat realistic for these smaller nations. If you’re wondering how this goes with foreign rules, I have the answer for you 😊 In Spain at first glance the rules seem really strict, with only 2 non-eu players allowed in the Segunda Division and 3 in La Liga, but then you need to look closer. All Conotou nations are not considered non-eu. Which means that a ton of Caribbean, African and Pacific nations do not count (pretty much all African nations outside of North Africa, pretty much the whole of Oceania outside of New Zealand). Usually this would not matter much, but since these are the places in the world I am specifically looking to sign players from, this will be interesting. Asian players and certain north American nations will be tougher to deal with, since it will take a whopping 10 years for non-EU/South America foreigners to get Spanish nationality. As a Dutchman I am particularly interested to see if there can be any good players coming from places like Aruba, Curaçao or Bonaire. The chances are very slim but you never know. Usually I would skip even looking at places like the minnow countries, but it should be interesting to see if some of them can become decent players or more. At some point, with young players coming in this way, and through the youth intakes, there will simply be too many players for the three teams. If that is the case I will start loaning players out. Since I will always keep around at least 5 tiers in Spain (perhaps only removing the 6th and 7th if the C team goes up the ranks, depending on game speed) I can look for teams on a variety of levels to give them playing time in league football as well. It of course can also be the case that a player is just too good for the C team but not good enough yet for the B team, or the same for players between the B team and the first team, I will loan them out as well. I will have some foreign leagues on view-only, like the Dutch, Portuguese and the PL. The only foreign leagues I will add playable are the Andorran leagues. As far as the tactics are concerned, I will mostly be using a similar style of play as I did in my previous save, a kind of direct 4-2-3-1 but for the B & C teams a little bit more simplistic so that the defenders don’t need to be ball playing defenders right away etc. Anyway, as should be clear by now I’ve wanted to do this for a while and have thought about how I would go about it, so I’m excited to finally give this a full go. In my next post I will be getting into the players, the squads and what will need to happen in the first transfer window.

  10. On this years edition of FM i have chosen Sevilla, mainly due to the fantastic defence, creative and solid midfield and terrifyingly quick forwards. 3-4-3 was the tactic i would be implementing, not at first but after evaluating the squad i realised that the players fit into the system i was looking to build towards. The tactic says 343 direct however ignore the direct part, i was trying to play direct football as i thought the 3 at the back would be exposed if i played a possession game but that is not the case. Balance is key for me as i wan't to keep a hold of the ball but with a purpose of getting to and overloadind the the last third. Defensively, the players are solid, Kjaer is the key role. Because the wingbacks will be so high up the pitch i have the right and left defenders on the cover duty as i want them to cover that space when we lose possession and are susceptible to a counter. It is working and the goals i have conceded so far have all been set pieces. Back to Kjaer - putting him on the stopper duty makes him push up and cover the space between defence and midfield and it it is working as planned. Here is the tactic- Examples from a 4-1 beating of an in form sociedad- In the shot below you can see how we squeeze up into the last third and the marauding wing backs provide all of the width which is what you want in a 3-4-3 but you can also see how the back three cover the centre of the pitch. Below you can see the defence, kjaer doing what he does, that is his role in this tactic as his tackling and mentals are through the roof, he done this multiples times in the match and stopped a pass out to the wings. To get through to kjaer the opposition have to get past the solid midfield pairing of nzonzi and pizarro. You can also see that the wingbacks keep the wing in check. At times it does look like a back 4 in the match as kjaer is patrolling and cleaning that dm area. The main reason i use the narrow shape in the TI is to funnel the ball to the wings and to make it the defending easier for the midfield and kjaer by compressing the space. If they have to cover a lot area i don't think it will be as effective. As the figure shows, a lot of the key passes are towards the side of the pitch, with hardly any through balls - i have played with through balls as the strikers are rapid with high of the balls stats but it has not worked as well as i hoped. Tinkering to hopefully make it effective but as of now i am not using that TI. The midfield of nzonzi, pizarro, banega and correa control the games, especially the first 3. The technical skill and movement keep the ball moving and they dictate the tempo of the game, you can see the passing triangles they create and it can unlock a defence, The team is really well balanced and i will update this post when i get to christmas as i have some really tough games coming up especially in the champions league, will be a big test to see how the system deals with spurs. Also any sort of constructive criticism on 3-4-3 formations, useful tips anything at all to make this system better would be very welcome.
  11. Love thy neighbour? Not this Angel Introduction This career starts in Getafe, a city with around 160,000 inhabitants just a few kilometers south of Madrid. The city's only professional club, Getafe CF, is where my manager (to be introduced later) will be forging his career. Getafe are a relatively new club, having been formed in 1983 after a merger. They started in the depths of the lower leagues but 4 quick promotions saw them climb to the 3rd tier. Eventually, the club won promotion to La Liga in 03/04 and they stayed in the top flight for 12 consecutive seasons. Their best finish was 6th in 2010 and the clubs biggest successes were the back to back Copa del Rey finals in 2007 & 2008, however they were defeated in both. Unfortunately last season the club were relegated from La Liga and now find themselves in the Segunda. The clubs biggest rivals are Leganes, based in a city in close proximity to Getafe, who leapfrogged Getafe to play in the top flight for the first time in their history. Also lower league side Parla are another fierce rival, although it is an unlikely fixture in the near future. You may wonder why Barcelona are listed as rivals. This rivalry stems from the 06/07 season where Getafe thrashed Barcelona 4-0 in the Copa del Rey semi-final. Ever since, games between the two sides have been heated, particularly when Getafe play at home. There is a 'friendly' rivalry with Atletico and Real Madrid, though the friendliness of this is something I really want to change. My aim is to become fierce rivals with our bigger neighbours. The biblical reference in the thread title mirrors the clubs use of biblical references in their 06/07 season ticket campaign, whereby Jesus, Moses and Abraham were depicted to sacrifice themselves for Getafe. A controversial move. Getafe play at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, names after former Spanish international Alfonso Perez who never played for Getafe, but is the most famous player to have come from the city. it is a 17,700 all-seater stadium and like many other Spanish stadiums it is mostly open air. The club boasts good Training Facilities, whilst the Youth Facilities, Junior Coaching and Youth Recruitment are distinctly average. The Manager: Angel Vivar Dorado Meet our Angel, the manager alias of choice. Why him? Well Dorado is a club icon who played for the club between 2002 and 2007, making 150 appearances and he was an influential figure in the 2006/07 cup run including scoring a goal in the 4-0 demolition of Barcelona. To top it off, he's a local lad. The Philosophy The whole career will be based around a tactic I created on FM13, replicated for the current version with some small differences. It emulates the philosophy of Arrigo Sacchi. Shamelessly plugged from my FM13 tactic upload introduction: " So this tactic is based on the philosophy behind Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2 approach. Sacchi played with high intensity and a high defensive line. This enabled him to squeeze the play in the middle of park, and ensured that the distance between his defensive and forward lines was never more than 25 metres. Essentially, this constituted naturally occurring pressing—perhaps one of the first in football with such velocity. Sacchi reasoned that by squeezing the pitch, in order for his opponent to get through his side, they'd need to break down three lines of players in quick succession. Not many managed it. Attacking-wise, there was no one strict way to break down the opposition. Chances were created through build-up/passing play through the middle, crosses from wide and counter-attacks. Sacchi was a proponent of multi-purpose players. Not fond of the specialist, he looked for all of his players to be capable of every job on the field, which is why his interchanging 4-4-2 worked so well.The midfielders were well-rounded and functional in every area, his forwards chased and his defenders pushed up. Teamwork was what his side were predicated on, and it was teamwork that allowed them to become one of the greatest sides in footballing history. The tactic resembles a 4-4-2, however with a slight change of two DMs as opposed to MCs. This enabled the tactic to be a lot more solid defensively, bringing the lines of the players a lot closer. The Sweeper Keeper does his job sweeping up behind the back line, two FBs on support allowing them the licence to get forward, but not at the expense of their defensive duties. The two DCs act as ball playing defenders, able to pick out those quick counter passes once the ball is won. The DMs act as box-to-box players, supporting the attack and defence. The wingers provide the outlets for the attack, pushing forward once the ball is won, but also have defensive duties in winning the ball back. A complete striker supports the advanced forward, although both are equally important in both assisting and scoring goals. With the emphasis on fluid play and well-rounded, high pressing players a general basis of teamwork, work rate and determination are needed for this tactic to work. Lazy and/or selfish players will ruin the cogs in the machine. There is no target man or playmaker as individual creativity and decisions are important in this tactic." Key Players Club captain Mehdi Lacen has already been at the club for 5 seasons and he will be influential in our midfield. He already fits the profile of a ''Sacchi-like'' player. The second longest serving player at the club, behind Lacen, Vicente is a very capable goalkeeper and I fully expect him to be a big difference - his saves will win us points. Diaz, a club icon, is now back at the club for a second stint, having played here between 2007 and 2012. He may be 37, but he is a huge character to have at the club. Career Aims Get back in to La Liga! Cement a fierce rivalry with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and (most importantly) Real Madrid by becoming a real La Liga competitor. Win La Liga and the Champions League. Adhere to a 'Sacchi Philosophy', bringing in players with high determination, teamwork and work rate and get rid of those who do not fit the mould. Develop a world-class cantera that will compete with the likes of Barca's La Masia, underpinned by the whole club philosophy.
  12. Hey, I just wanted to know if anyone knew of teams which had new stadiums being built within the game? I know Tottenham have their new stadium being built by 2018-19 and play at Wembley. Just wanted to see if any other teams had a new stadium being built. Thanks!
  13. This Backstory is totally fictional! New Years Eve went pear shaped, my Wife eventually found out all my indiscretions, and in the ensuing disaster I lost her, my kids, my family disowned me along with all my friends. As the clock struck Midnight I knew a change had to be made. What can I do I thought. I had nothing left apart from a bag of clothes and my National C Licence coaching badge. After a chat with a close friend (the only one who still spoke to me) I knew I had to get out, disappear, create a new identity in a new country. When I arrived at Gatwick Airport I didn't know where I was going to end up. I went to the travel agents inside the airport and asked where the next available flight went, I only had £500 to my name and needed some spare cash when I arrived at my destination to find a hotel and then a job so it had to be as cheap as possible. The destination? Gibraltar. Then it hit me, why not use my National C Licence to do some good. Let's go to Gibraltar and start a journey. I hope I would never return to the UK, instead travel the world seeing all the places I had dreamed of going to, but do to that I had to earn money, I needed a job that paid enough to live, but also enough to save for the future. A career as a journeyman football manager was the perfect choice. As I boarded the flight I knew it was the right choice but I wanted to make it as fun as possible along the way so I needed to set myself some aims, objectives and challenges to do along the way. On the 150 minute flight I drew myself up a list of things. Win the League in a nation before I can move to the next. I can only move to a nation that borders the nation I am in, so from Gibraltar I'd have to move to Spain, and so on and so on. If there is no bordering nation that I haven't already been to then I can move to the nearest one. I have to make my choices to better myself and my financial situation. If a job comes in from a club in the same nation that pays more then I can go (if I want to). I want to win the Champions League in all 6 continents When I finish my journey I want the whole world to know who I am! How will I document my journey? Each new club will have a post telling you about the club, location, squad, etc Each post will be as sharp and to the point as possible. It will be done on a monthly basis with results and table review. At the end of each season there will be a review of the season as a whole. I touched down at Gibraltar Airport and checked myself into the cheapest B&B I could find, when I wake up in the morning I have to go job hunting! Career History 2016/17 - Manchester 62 (Gibraltar) - Premier Division 8th
  14. So I started playing as the manager of Hercules in the Segunda Division (Spanish 3rd Division) and on my 3rd year I promoted on the La Liga. My issue is that Hercules B (Hercules B team) is inactive. It has not promoted and still participates on the same Valenciana (or something) amateur (inactive) league as when I started. There is no B team manager and I cannot hire one (or any other staff) once when I offer someone the job I can't select a wage. The team is full of generated "grey" players and whenever I move someone in it he gains no match fitness (so that means he doesn't play). It really throws me off once when a player misses for a long time or is a new signing, there is no way I can increase his match fitness. So I have to take the risk and play him on an official match costing on my team's performance. Is there any way I can make it active and be able to use it?
  15. Hi everyone, does anyone know whether it is possible to request an increase in the coaching budget for Spanish reserve/B teams? How do I do it if it is possible? If it isn't, why is it so? I currently manage Real Madrid and am trying to increase Real Madrid's coaches' maximum wages to attract better coaching talent as Real Madrid B has been promoted to the Second Division (Liga Adelante), but I can't seem to do so and this seems to be the case for other Spanish teams as well. It is my understanding that Spain has a unique system for reserve or B teams, which play in the same league system as their respective first teams, as opposed to a separate reserves league system such as a designated U23 league. So consequently clubs are treated as semi-affiliates in FM, which is understandable. However, given the extent that you can still micromanage the B team (hire/fire all staff, control training, deal with contract renewals, etc.), it makes no sense that you can't request increases to maximum staff wages. Any idea if I'm missing something? Is it a mistake/fault or is this a feature by design? Thanks in advance!
  16. EMPTY TROPHY CABINET- OSASUNA Welcome to my first FM17 and FM in general save that I will be uploading to this forum. I have decided to begin with Osasuna or Atletico Pamplona as they are called in game. Now you may be wondering why this topic is called empty trophy cabinet and that is because Osasuna have never won a major cup in their time as a club. Don't get me wrong they have won a Segunda Division and a couple of Segunda B Division titles but they do not count as major trophies. My ambition with Osasuna is too make them in too a European powerhouse challenging Real and Barca and going deep into Europe and filling up that trophy cabinet as we go. Osasuna has recently been promoted back to La Liga so we are facing a relegation battle in the first season, however the goal the board have set me is mid-table and I plan to get that and start challenging for European Cups in a couple of years time. Although it is not a youth save I will be trying to bring in young players and having young players come into the first team from the youth team. I hope you enjoy this series and if you have any queries just post them and I will answer
