I’ve been playing Football Manager type games ever since Premier Manager 98. Back then, football management games were simpler and more streamlined. Seasons could be completed within an hour yet the joy and satisfaction was just as it is for me today. Extra Time FM is a blog where I plan to write about the highs and lows of my Football Manager saves. Football Manager is all about the journey and documenting that helps add to the enjoyment. You can read the blog here: www.extratimefm.com I have started a new save with Wolves which you can read below. Wandering To Titles! Wolves - Football Manager 2020 Season 1: 1.

I had so much fun playing the Sir Alex Ferguson Challenge in FM17, I figured I would do it again in FM19 before the name game is released. If your not familiar with the challenge you sim till November 6th and take over the team that's in 19th place and guide them to glory. For this save I got the Wolverhampton Wolves. Rules You must always have a player produced by your club's academy in every match squad. You MAY sign permanently NO MORE THAN 11 players in a season, and ONLY 8 PERMANENT signings may feature in the first-team that season! Sir Alex never signed more than this ever in a season. You MAY NOT ever do transfer business of any kind with your main rival. (Liverpool/United have not exchanged a player since 1964.) [Phil Chisnall to Liverpool] You MAY NOT edit the game in any way other than cosmetic enhancements. No editor, no edited databases. A relegation is immediate challenge over at any time. A sacking is immediate challenge over at any time. International management is NOT allowed at any time. Milestones Win the FA Cup within 4 seasons - Ferguson won his first cup, the FA Cup vs Crystal Palace in 89/90 18/19 Season Win the Premier League within 7 seasons - Ferguson won his first Premier League in 92/93 Win a Premier League/FA Cup double within 8 seasons - Ferguson won his first Double with United in 93-94 Win Three Premier League/FA Cup Doubles within 13 seasons - Ferguson's Treble Included His Third League/FA Cup Double Win the Premier League/FA Cup/Champions League Treble within 13 seasons - Ferguson Won the Infamous Treble in 98/99 Achievements Premier League (13) FA Cup (5) League Cup (4) Community Shield (10) UEFA Champions League (2) UEFA Europa League (1) (Replaces the Cup Winners Cup) ** UEFA Super Cup (1) FIFA Club World Cup (2) (One Replaces Intercontinental Cup)
I'm having trouble to let my teams play the way I want. I found it especially difficult to get mentality, shape and team-instructions right. So I'm calling the community for help to get me on my way! So let's start with what I want to achieve: - attractive attacking football with a solid defense - no hoof balls from the back to the front - fast ball circulation (one touch if possible) - keeping possession (but not for possession's sake) - positive (forward) passes if possible - goals from crosses & through passes with my lone forward as main goalscorer - not too many long shots - agressive pressing, winning the ball back quickly What mentality, shape and team-instructions suit this style best? What instructions compliment my style of play? I think the following 3-4-3 formation goes well with what I'm aiming for: Goalkeeper: Not sure if I need a sweeper keeper or a regular goalkeeper, what's the difference really? Depends on how high the D-line will be I guess? Central defenders: I want my central defender to bring the ball from the back to the midfield (that PPM should work wonders I guess?) But I'm uncertain if has to be a stopper or cover? Wingbacks: I want them to deliver lots of crosses in the penalty box and act as a wide outlet in possession, being a passing option during the entire attacking phase. But also being solid in defense, marking wingers, eliminating crosses, ... Central midfield: I'm assuming I need two conservative roles to balance out the tactic, with one being the playmaker who links everything together (hopefully) and can deliver some assists (probably more pre-assists) with great through passes and distributing the game and the other player should be a workhorse who recovers ball possession quickly and plays simple passes in function of the team Inside forwards: They should roam freely and be a goalscoring threat as well as deliver lots of assists Lone forward: He should be my main goalscorer I hope I made it clear what I'm after and hope that someone could put me on my way! Did I choose the right roles? And what mentality, shape, TI's and PI's should I aim for?
