  1. New Year, New Story! A lot of my stories follow the same basic format. You'll have noticed this, and I'm very aware of it. Apart from the odd one like the Di Cianni Boys story, and The Gambler, I generally start at a domestic or far flung lower level club with my experience set to Sunday League Footballer level, and attempt to move them through the Leagues. Usually I do alright, pick up a few trophies and do a decent job. But how much difference does that experience setting actually make to the way the save moves forward? How would my save be different when I use the top level experience of International Footballer instead. I can't recall ever using that setting before (prepared to be corrected if there is a short lived save knocking around somewhere on these Boards). Well, lets find out! Once more, continuing the recent theme of using FM'09, all the Nations and Leagues available are activated. I'll start unemployed, and wait to see what opportunities await me as a 30 year old retired International Footballer with 40 caps and 13 goals to his name for Wales. I don't expect to jump into a job right away, and I certainly don't envisage taking the first job that comes by way, more likely it will be a project that I really like the look of. Lets see what kind of adventure this one takes us on. -------------------------------------------------- Happy New Year readers. Lets hope that 2021 is a huge improvement on last years sh*t show! No editor is being used for this save, just cosmetics for club badges and kits, and the unfaking process to unlock the German National Team. Expect to see some slightly different formatting for match reports and info as I use this little project to try out some new looks. Feedback always welcome, along with questions and observations. Enjoy.

Country turns on players and FA. Post 283: THE END =========================================================================== Intro I completed Football Manager 2007. It only took close to a decade in real time, three decades in game time. The Backstory They didn't just do Pick 'n' Mix. £25 from Woolworths in 2006/2007 began my so-caled 'canon career'. The career only took in two clubs (and quite a few countries as well). A lot of trophies, promotions, drama, records and history. You know how it is. When I took my next job in 2035, it hit me: the game has finished itself, through chaos. The football world had imploded. Internationally, Japan, Austria, Poland, Lithuania, Peru, Canada, to name a few, were either former champions or had reached the business end of the World Cup. Germany, Netherlands, Italy were all perennial failures. In club football it was the same; giants had fallen and been replaced by the likes of Charlton, West Ham, Nantes. Austria, the most feared team in world football. It felt like too many teams had lost their identity. While some had created a wonderful new history in the game, the vast majority kinda merged together. There was no longer a challenge, because every club could reach the top and every league was open, there for the taking. (Ok, except Scotland, where Celtic had won by 30 points as the only team with positive goal difference!) So it all ended in 2035, 2014 in real time. I moved on to FM14, but it hasn't grabbed me, despite all the new features I always wanted. I thought I really had retired from FM altogether. But the urge has returned... The Gimmick And My Approach Portugal, British Virgin Islands, Britain, Russia... So I shall return to the game that stole my heart, and see if we can make another canon career. Even more canon than the first! Because I have a confession: I'm not really a former international, I can't just get a Premier League or international job. I've no footballing experience whatsoever. So what's an André Villas-Boas to do? Get your badges and get out there! But I don't even get my foot in the door by bumping into Bobby Robson or being an assistant manager. I'm going in cold (unless I also take my first steps in the British Virgin Islands, which sounds quite sunny). The scope is massive as I can load every league, country and player. I'm open-minded, have no baggage, and seem to be pretty good at learning languages. I could go anywhere. But it's not just location I have to consider in real terms, but personal things, and how to treat others. Can I turn down the transfer offer of a lifetime for my young starlet when he's a human being with his own career and ambitions, rather than virtual code? Can I really live in Africa, Scandinavia or Australia with their giant spiders? This goes deeper than it first seems... And since I'll be loading everything, you can consider this to be the ultimate simulation of FM 2007. So I'll be giving details of the goings on in the rest of the game world. Will we see eerily realistic competition winners and transfers? Which now familiar faces of real life 2016 will also rise in FM 2007's predictions? Will the world be clamouring for Guardiola and Klopp, Ronaldo and Messi? Jogging Your Memory: What Was Happening in 2006? "That is not what I meant about winning more headers, Zizou." - Zidane headbutted France out of the World Cup, with Italy winning on penalties to become the second-most successful country in World Cup history, after Brazil. The headbutt was the only real shock in a very routine tournament, no one completely flopped, it was a bit boring really. - Frank Rijkaard's Barcelona beat Arsenal 2-1 in the Champions League final. This Barcelona lot look to be a good team. Thierry Henry's head may be turned... - Jose Mourinho's Chelsea and their mean defence once again destroyed the rest of the Premier League, comfortably winning. Will they ever be stopped? - Claude Makelele is so good he has a position named after him. Thierry Henry, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Eto'o, Shevchenko, Ronaldinho, Trezeguet, Ronaldo (not Cristiano) and Kaka are banging in the goals. - Lyon won their fifth title in a row. Can they turn this into improved European performances? - Juventus win Serie A. Nothing seems peculiar about this... - Juventus are relegated for match fixing, and will start Serie B with a huge point deficit. Other clubs are also punished. - Australia left the OFC and joined the AFC. It'll be interesting to see how they cope with tougher opposition in Asian qualifying from now on. New Zealand will no doubt dominate OFC forever. - The UEFA Cup recently introduced a group stage, 5 teams per group playing each other just once. - Alan Shearer retires. Will Newcastle cope? Of course; they have Michael Owen! - Messi is just another top player, and that Ronaldo shows a lot of potential. Cristiano Ronaldo, that is. (Right now we still think of the Brazilian when we say 'Ronaldo'. It's very confusing.) - Wembley still isn't finished. - England lose on penalties.
