  1. Royn Hvalba or Bóltfelagið Royn, or just Royn, is a Faroese football and sports association from Hvalba in Suðuroy, founded 23 October 1923. The chairman for Royn Hvalba is Gunnhild Mortensen. Manager is Eyðun Gullok Svalbard. Royn has a team in the Faroese second division (2. deild). Royn also has teams for girls and boys, in 2012 they had a team for girls under 12, a team for boys U8 and one for boys U10. Royn and TB Tvøroyri now have a new manager for all the youth teams of the two clubs. Men over 35 have their own team. The women had their own team earlier. Royn is one of three football associations in the island Suðuroy. The other two football clubs are FC Suðuroy with base in Vágur and TB Tvøroyri from Tvøroyri. Royn Hvalba plays its home matches on the football field in Hvalba, which is a grass field (natural grass). After the end of the 2016 season it was decided on 15 December 2016 that the three clubs of the island Suðuroy, which are TB Tvøroyri, FC Suðuroy and Royn Hvalba would merge into a new club for the 2017 season. The merger will not be complete until 2018 and the name will be all three names together for the 2017 season: TB/FC Suðuroy/Royn. The three clubs have not been dissolved yet, they continue separately for the children's and women's teams. In 2017 it will only be the men's teams which will play for the new cooperation. In Faroese the new team is referred to as Suðuroyarliðið (the Suðuroy-team). The first head coach for the Suðuroy-team is Maurice Ross. Betri deildin menn: Løgmanssteypið Stórsteypadystur My aim is to slowly work my way up through the Faroese league pyramid and to eventually top all of these leader-boards. Leagues Loaded: Faroe Islands - Playable The other 54 European nations - View Only Database Size: 34,000 - Small database with all Faroese players, players from top division clubs and players in a continental competition loaded.
  2. Welcome back everyone!! This is the new incarnation of the Youth Academy Challenge started by ri916 and continued by Braumiller before I picked it up, from now on rather than having a thread only for the current version of the game, this thread will also play host to people that are starting on older versions. The Aim To win your chosen countries' top division and win the Champions League of your continent with a previously unplayable club using only your academy as a way of acquiring new players - this mean No Transfers of any kind. No buying back former players. Even on a free. No loans not even as part of a deal to sell your player. The Available Countries Previously any Country in Europe was eligible as long as you can get a previously unplayable side promoted from Holidaying, however from last year we were happy to extended it to the rest of the world as well as long as the team meets the criteria of being previously unplayable and that is the same this year. No custom databases just from whatever leagues come with the game. New Stuff With a new game comes new features and there are some changes that will likely affect those of us that play the game in this way. The new stuff added that we will likely use is Club Vision, Development Centre and Playing Time Pathway. These new features will allow us to shape the vision of the club over the long and short term, the Development Centre will allow us to chart our exciting new players before they become playable and give us an idea of what area’s we will have strength in which in turn could impact on our current squads and who we look to retain and/or retrain. While the Playing Time Pathway allows us to progress players from Emergency Backup to First Team Star, this will (I think anyway) be good for those of us that like to plan for players, gives us a reminder of what we are expecting each season from our youngsters but also stops them from being upset about playing time (this could be especially helpful with keepers) I’ve added links to the blog posts that cover each new feature for those that want to read more about them. Helpful Information There is often lots of speculation about what impacts the youth intake and what you as a player can do in order to get the best intake you can and the below is the information we have thanks to @Seb Wassell Newgens & Youth Intake Youth Recruitment The Club’s recruiting of Juniors, those of home and foreign origin. Youth Facilities The training facilities available for Juniors (only). Does NOT apply to visible players already at the club. All visible players currently at the club use Training Facilities regardless of age. Junior Coaching The quality and quantity of Junior Coaches at the Club. Nation Youth Rating The potential maximum quality and quantity of Juniors produced in that Nation. Game Importance How important football is considered to be in that Nation. Producing Newgens The Clubs with the best Youth Recruitment will generally pick up the best Junior talent from that Nation first, the scale of that talent being determined by the Nation Youth Rating and Game Importance. The lower the Youth Recruitment the further down the pecking order a club will find itself. Two clubs with identical Youth Recruitment will be sorted by Club Reputation. Being lower down this pecking order does not mean quality Newgens cannot be produced, it simply lowers the chances. Youth Facilities and Junior Coaching then simulate and determine how that Junior progresses in the Club’s Junior system until a Newgen is produced and appears in game. It is at this point that the Current Ability (CA) and Potential Ability (PA) of the newgens are decided. The above factors all contribute to both CA and PA equally. Head of Youth Development (HoYD) The club’s HoYD is responsible for bringing Newgens into the club. He will influence what “type” of players are selected and can partially or fully pass on his personality to some of these Newgens. The “type” of players selected refers to a player’s position and style, for instance a HoYD with a preferred 4-5-1 formation and a Technical Coaching Style may produce more technically styled midfielders than another HoYD. The HoYD will also influence the rare “freak” or exceptional Newgens that come through, modifying their ability and style. This role is filled by the HoYD by default, however if none is employed whichever staff member is set to be responsible for youth development will fill this role. Youth Intake Preview In FM20 the Development Centre will provide a preview of the upcoming youth intake ahead of the day itself. This preview will provide some information on the general quality of the intake, positions that are either blessed with or lacking in quality and any other notable highlights. Junior Player Poaching In FM20 it is possible for Juniors to be poached from another club's youth system. This will most commonly occur from smaller reputation club > larger reputation club. When this occurs a inbox item is received, offering a few details (similar to that of the Youth Intake Preview) on the player that has been poached. Poached players will appear in the next appropriate youth intake. The Reset Dates (Dates will appear when they have been confirmed for FM20 and if the country you pick isn't listed below just let me know the reset date and I'll add it) Argentina - July 15 Austria - June 13 (save on June 6th then holiday to June 13th to get different teams) Belarus Belgium - Brazil - Croatia - Czech Republic - Denmark - June 29 (save on June 3rd then holiday till June 29th to get different teams) England - June 24 (May 29th seems to be the reload day so save to then and then holiday till June 24 to get different teams) Finland - November 30 France - Germany - June 19th (May 25th seems to be the reload day so save to then and then holiday till June 19 to get different teams) Holland - July 7 (save on May 29th then holiday to July 7th to get different teams) Hungry - June 19th Iceland - November 25th (save at end of September 30/31st then holiday to November 25th to get different teams) Italy - June 29 (Last playoff game is June 6th so save June 5th and holiday till June 29th to get different teams) Northern Ireland - Norway - Jan 13 Poland - June 29 Portugal - June 29 (Last playoff game is June 21 so save then and holiday till June 29th to get different teams) Romania - Russia - June 19 (save on May 16 and holiday to June 19 to get different teams) Scotland - May 3rd (save on May 1st or 2nd to get different teams) Serbia - Slovenia - South Africa - Spain - Sweden - Switzerland - June 20 (save on May 20th then holiday till June 20th to get different teams) Turkey - Wales – June 24 (save on may 16th then holiday till June 24 to get different teams) Database Settings Mandatory Database size can be small, medium or large Advanced Options have to be as shown here --> Optional Any additional settings in the ‘Advanced Database Setup’ – Due to us not being allowed to buy players, adding extra players just adds to the realism of your game and potentially slightly increases difficulty. NOTE – It is highly recommended you add the highest unplayable leagues for your country, as this will help make sure the promoted teams (you will be taking control of) have players. As an example, this is what I loaded for England - Players from Top Clubs in Europe is also recommended We used to limit this to just loading the leagues from the country you are playing in but we now allow you to load as many leagues as you to add a bit more immersion into their saves. You don't have to add any more than the country you are playing in but the option is there for people that want to. Steps When Getting Started Add yourself as an unemployed manager. Call him holiday man if you want. Go on holiday until the reset date of your nation or the day before if you’re planning on reloading. Retire the manager Add a new manager with your chosen nationality and the lowest possible reputation and qualifications Choose the newly promoted club of your choice Rules for the Challenge No loans or transfers in are allowed but you can sell and loan players out. If you are sacked, sorry, you have to start again. No save game editors are allowed. Only cosmetic database edits are allowed. (Team/competition names/logos) No international management until completion of challenge. Signing backroom staff is allowed. Signing players on trial or signing grey players isn't allowed. Rules for this Thread Player naming is allowed. General discussion on tactics is allowed, although people should not refer to downloaded tactics. They are not banned, but I would expect the majority of people to avoid them. Screenshots for anything are encouraged but please post links to your pictures, don't post them as images as it makes the pages slower to load. When you join the challenge, could you post a screenshot of your manager's profile on the league reset date. Progress of your club should be documented using this thread. The beauty of these challenge threads is to share your story and to read others. Please keep us updated, even if you are not performing as you may wish. Season Update Youth Candidates All Tagged Players Attribute page Transfers (to prove that you haven’t signed any players) Squad League Table Anything else is optional.  Also, some people like to nickname/tag their best players from each youth intake in chronological order. For example, you could nickname your best player in the intake in season 1 as *their name* YP01a, and so on. But this is not compulsory if you don't wish to. Good luck to all
  3. Hello... I've tried this challenge a hundred times before, and never done very well. I don't expect that to change this time, either. I'm not very good at FM, and we probably won't win anything, or ever get very far. Updates may also be few and far between as work gets in the way. Now that excellent sales pitch is out the way... I'm going to manage both San Giovanni and the San Marino NT from the off. No reason, really, except I fancy a bit of international management early on. Nothing like an easy challenge, huh? The San Marino NT are the worst international side in the world, and San Giovanni are projected to finish 8th... in a group of 7.
  4. The Frenchman Who Made Vietnam Cheer We've all heard of French Indochina, of the Sino-French and Independence wars, and of course of the Vietnam wars that started in the 50s, taking away the lives of millions and millions of innocent civilians. France has, admittedly, played an important part in every single intervention in Vietnam, and still has to this day a strong influence on the country's economy, political instability, and whatnot. What if its influence grew past the negativity it has always had a connotation to? What if France sent one of its brightest young minds to make Vietnam rejoice the socio-cultural infatuation it should have always had? The hero of our story, a young 22 year-old who was set to become France's greatest football star until he tore his ACL (you know how it goes), initially came to Vietnam as a tourist, but had some issues at the border that forced him to stay there indefinitely, don't ask any more questions, I didn't think that much about Alphonse's story. Oh, right, his name's Alphonse, as French as it gets, pretty cool, right? Alphonse had to find a job that would pay the bills in order to, well, survive, and turned to football, his only education. Few weeks later, he penned a manager contract with the legendary Phù Đổng FC, founded in 2015 with the slogan "Sports is life". One of his objectives as manager of this small Hanoi-based club; to make it the Asian powerhouse it should have always been. In fact, his list of objectives goes a bit deeper than that. I present to you, the 16 Commandments of Alphonse Levallois. Now, more information on this youth-only career update and our chosen team, the great Phù Đổng FC, will follow in the next post.
  5. Right, after several attempts at a youth save here we go again, we are starting in League One. My club will again replace the MK Dons and play at Stadium MK, just like my Stopsley Utd team. Rep of club has been lowered from 4850 to 3200. This will be a youth only save. Mawborough's first manager will be................ I picked 23 players for our starting squad, five players join us from Tottenham including Tanganga and Parrott. *Bursik has switched from England to Croatia. We are predicted to finish 20th out of 23 teams by the media. CAPTAIN VICE CAPTAIN _____________________________________________________________________________ I will use this......... I would normally use this....... for a save like this, not going to use it this time, I will only manage this club. I will play as various managers during the save, If I get sacked I will just create another.
  6. SEASON REVIEW 2019/2020 TEAM REVIEW For this year’s save, I wanted to save some time and dive to the endgame (i.e – Premier League) as soon as I could, so instead of Creating-A-Club at the Vanarama level, I decided to do it at the League 2 level. I replaced Carlisle, moved them to London, and replaced every player on the club. I then created every player, settling on 18 players on a £2.5M total budget. We obliterated the league thanks to some highly skilled strikers and….everything really. We played Attacking football, and I allowed the team the have their creative license on the pitch, and while we hit a rough patch a couple of months before the end of the season, we were already so far ahead at that point that it did not matter. So without further ado, welcome to Kafra FC 2020 – off to a winning start with some talented young players, and ready to face some League 1 competition. KEY PLAYERS PLAYER OF THE YEAR FORWARD - Michael Flynn (2019), 17 Years Old: 44 Apps, 25 Goals, 7 Assists, 6 PoMs, 7.49 AR…There wasn’t an award the young striker did not capture this year – League 2 Player of the Year, League 2 Top Goalscorer (25 Goals), and the Kafra FC Player of the Year…He also led the league with 7.49 AR to go with 7 Assists, 6 PoMs, and 52% Shot Target…He does not turn 17 until the end of June, and the main target of Kafra’s offseason will be to sign him to a long-term contract. Rating: 9/10 DEFENSE GOALKEEPER - Aidan Connolly (2019), 17 Years Old: 44 Apps, 1.16 Con/90, 9 Clean Sheets, 7.03 AR…He had a good season, although he started faltering towards the end, though to be fair, most of the team did, as well…He played in 44 Games, registering 1.16 Con/90 and 7.03 AR along with 9 Clean Sheets…His development showed slight improvement in his Goalkeeping and Physical abilities, but nothing really significant…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year as the top GK. Rating: 7.5/10 LEFT DEFENDER - Tim Tuson-Firth (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 4 Assists, 17 Chances Created, 101 Key Passes (1st in League), 94 Interceptions, 1.20 TpG, 7.06 AR…The statistics speak for themselves, and Tuson-Firth was a very influential going forward and in the attacking third…His 101 Key Passes led the league, and he registered 77% Pass Ratio alongside it…What he is lacking in technical ability he makes up for with his effort and speed…His versatility is also an added plus, as he can play anywhere across the back-line. Rating: 7/10 RIGHT DEFENDER - Daryl McNeil (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 3 Goals, 7 Assists, 29 Chances Created (2nd in League), 92 Key Passes (2nd), Interceptions (9th), 1.63 TpG, 7.19 AR…McNeil was just as efficient going forward as his counterpart Tuson-Firth, but was more involved defensively…Easily the best right-back in the League 2 this season, and was named in the League 2 Team of the Year…Was probably the club’s best defender overall this season, as his 7.19 AR was the highest out of all the defenders. Rating: 7.5/10 CENTRAL DEFENDER - Bob McLaren (2019), 18 Years Old: 41 Apps, 4 Goals, 73 Interceptions, 33 Shots Blocked (1st in League), 0.59 TpG, 7.00 AR…The club’s first captain, the CD was in good form this season and actually led the league in Shots Blocked…His other defensive numbers were as strong, but he was consistent…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 7/10 CENTRAL DEFENDER - John McPake (2019), 17 Years Old: 39 Apps, 3 Assists, 120 Interceptions (10th in League), 26 Shots Blocked (3rd), 0.84 TpG, 7.03 AR…The youngest member of the club’s starting back-line, he is also potentially the most talented…He has the highest rated defensive abilities on the squad, and his speed makes up for his lack of aerial ability…Has been capped at the U19 level for Scotland…was named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 7/10 MIDFIELD CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Neil Furlong (2019), 17 Years Old: 38 Apps, 3 Goals, 10 Assists (10th in League), 3 PoMs, 20 Chances Created (4th), 83% Pass Ratio, 92 Key Passes (2nd), 1.26 DpG, 7.29 AR (5th)…The obvious first observation is that Furlong belongs on the wing as opposed to the center of the pitch…He still played great for us, and while he was a real contributor defensively, he did a great job going forward…He led the team with his 84% Pass Ratio and had the 3rd highest AR on the team…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8/10 CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Scott Pugh-Grice (2019), 18 Years Old: 42 Apps, 3 Goals, 4 Assists, 1.37 TpG, 80% Pass Ratio, 16 Chances Created, 7.03 AR…The preferred choice in the rotation alongside side Furlong…More defensive-minded than Furlong, which made them a good combination…Will likely lose his starting spot to Intake youngster Alexis Milton next season, though. Rating: 7/10 LEFT WINGER - Martin Breen (2019), 17 Years Old: 43 Apps, 13 Goals, 11 Assists (5th in League), 5 PoMs, 76% Pass Ratio, 74 Key Passes (7th), 22 Chances Created (3rd), 2.80 DpG (10th), 7.28 AR (7th)…In a team full of talented youngsters, Breen joins Flynn in being in the top tier…Despite his great stats, I felt he actually could’ve played better this year…He still ranked as one of the top performers in the league…His strength is his pace, but his Technical abilities are also impressive for this level and for his position…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8/10 RIGHT WINGER - Ashley Turner (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 15 Goals (9th in League), 13 Assists (2nd), 5 PoMs, 84 Key Passes (4th), 30 Chances Created (1st), 81% Pass Ratio, 1.38 DpG, 7.37 AR (4th)…Possibly the second best player in the entire league after his teammate Flynn…He led the league in Chances Created, and his Assists numbers were also very impressive…Was the most dangerous winger in the League 2, able to convert attacks into goals with ease…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8.5/10 ATTACK FORWARD - Aaron Dennis (2019), 18 Years Old: 45 Apps, 21 Goals (3rd in League), 10 Assists (10th), 4 PoMs, 83% Pass Completed, 68% Shot Target (1st), 36% Cross Completion (6th), 7.28 AR (6th)…Dennis was 2nd on the team in Goals to Flynn, but he may have been the more complete player this season…His ridiculous 68% Shot Target Ratio is the stuff made of dreams, but he also had high pass ratings and was a dangerous crosser of the ball…Overall, he was definitely 1B to Flynn’s 1A, as opposed to being a second option…He was named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8.5/10 HOT PROSPECTS N/A IMPORTANT PLAYERS LEAVING/RETIRING None. YOUTH INTAKE Alexis Milton - Simon Fogg A good intake considering we have one player that will immediately step into the starting eleven. Our second CM position might be our weakest link, so we get to address it immediately. Fogg will add more depth to a strong CD position, but I am not complaining.
  7. Where do you even begin this? So a while ago, I had a moment of madness to suggest someone does a Liechtenstein save and try win the Champions League there. The catch is the fact, it's a tiny country, it has no league structure oh and there is no direct Champions League places for this nation. The only way to get there is to win the Europa League, so no pressure then. There is only a single playable Liechtenstein club in the default DB and only 2 more with Claassen's 5 tier Switzerland expansion. I have decided to sim a few season and will be starting in summer 2021. In the meantime, Vaduz has become a bit of a joke, failing to win any Liechtenstein cups, only getting to the final once. Eschen managed to promote to the third tier and have been doing rather well there, so I will be taking the lowest available Liechtensteiner club - newly promoted to fifth tier FC Schaan. They have won the Liecthenstein Cup 3 times and last were in the final in 2016, so the potential is there. The financial situation and the stadium is quite what you'd expect in the fifth division: The squad is very bare though with only 5 defenders, 3 centre mids and a single GK across 3! senior teams and U21s I will be doing a youth only save with buyback options, so we will be able to buyback the players from our academy. I will also only hire staff from the adverts, so i don't expect anyone competent for a while.
  8. FK Gariunai Vilnius is a football team from Vilnius, Graiunia district. And in the little info I could find, they state that "FK Gariunai is the protector of the Gariunai market". The market is the biggest in Lithuania. I wanted another go at a nation people rarely manage in, and this time I decided to go with Lithuania. I have started my save in the Sunday Football League Ergo C Division, the seventh tier of Lithuanian football! There is no particular reason I went with FK Gariunai Vilnius, other than that I like their kit! My aim for this save is to go all the way to the top of the Lithuanian football, and develop a lot of good players along the way. Hopefully boosting the national team, so that they hopefully can make it to a Euro Championship or a World Cup! I will not be signing any players that has not come through our youth system. I may sign players that has left the club. Facilities We share our home ground with a lot of other teams, 21 to be exact! Not much to see here. Hopefully in a few years there will be a lot of names added. Manager Here is the leagues I have loaded. I have also added every single league in Europe as "view only". Thanks to Weiry for the DB! You can get it HERE. Just forget the Honningsvåg save, it never happened. Turns out we could not get promoted from the league we were in. My mistake.
  9. I might actually be a creep, but for some reason I have always thought of this song as "Special", (both in name and nature). In any case, I would like to dedicate my Beta save to someone who, at this very early stage, is at least hinting, that he just possibly, might be...... a little bit special. I've never managed in Austria, and if my FM19 soujourn in France, Brazil and most Nordic Nations tells me anything, it suggest that trying new things can be fun. This bloke has really caught my eye this season in real life and I thought that watching him fill his boots, (he will even be taking free-kicks and pens away from GK's), could be fun while I see what's what in the Beta. The updates are going to be player-based rather than team-based, but to be honest I am making this up as I go so who knows what's going to happen. The only thing I know for absolute certainty, is that his Dad hates Roy Keane and the feeling is mutual.
  10. Welcome to my challenge of taking the FM-famous team of RGUOR Minsk to (hopefully) national and international glory. This is my first attempt at cataloguing my save on here, so if I'm missing any information or key stats, let me know. The Challenge The final aim of this challenge is simple, win the Champions League. However, I must do so using only RUOR's youth graduates. Along the way, I'll be aiming to win as much as I can domestically, as well as improving the state of the Belorussian national team as much as I can. I may even take over if given the opportunity. The Rules The only rule is that I am not allowed to sign players. The only exception to this are former RUOR youth graduates, but only if they are currently without a club (non-contracts/pre contracts do not count). The Club Not much is known about RUOR Minsk. Their Wikipedia page is a stub of an article, but says they acted as a feeder team for MPKC Mozyr in the 90's, before being an independent team. It also says a number of their players went on to play for the Belarus national team. However, Wikipedia lists the team as being dissolved in 2003. However, the team lived on through Football Manager, befuddling many a user who snooped around in the editor and found a Belorussian team with almost perfect facilities. I'm reviving RUOR (now named RGUOR in Football Manager) and have placed them in the 3rd tier of Belarus. I've removed their age limit of 17 and their affiliation to FC Minsk (which would prevent me from reaching the Premier League) The club play, train and have leisure of the facilities at the ABFF Training Centre: Our expectations are lofty, perhaps a bit too lofty: I've added players to playable teams which doubled with our facilities has given us a few players Premier League teams would be jealous of: Did someone say surplus of AMs? Don't suppose any could play LB/RB? (I don't think we're keeping them, though) The man looking to bring glory to RGUOR and Belarus: With a squad that looks to be raided, and lofty expectations set by my board, let's get to it!
  11. London Titans Hello ladies and gentlemen, it's me in my second post, this will be an experiment on how FM20 and its features, and how I could acclimatize with the game. Since in Vol 1, I reached several leagues dominating the amateur side (from the very bottom), I will redo that in FM20 with the new addition to the game. This will be a test save. I will open the real II edition when all the packs are out (England lower level, that was promoted and will be created by @Dan BHTFC; and the Caribbean Pack that will be created by @Tonao), since I plan to rise the London Titans from the lowest league in the England Pyramid and establish them as the best London team, and the best team in the World. While also helping out DR to classify became a permanent WC team, and maybe, just maybe won it with them. By the way, this save will last only two-three months, and let's set some goals. And as the new vision it will be updated through time. (Maybe I use this save as a long term one, but I'm learning)
  12. Growing up Down Wembley Way When the FA announced plans to rebuild Wembley Stadium in 2003, the new stadium came with a promise of making Wembley "one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe." They announced plans to completely transform what was a run down and deprived area, turning it into a vibrant, thriving part of the country. What did they actually do? They built some shops. Wembley resides in Brent, one of the poorest boroughs in London, and arguably the country. 33% of households live in poverty, with 32% of employees earning less than the London Living Wage, the second highest rate for any borough in the city. It's incredibly ethnically diverse - 36% of Brent is White, 34% Asian, 18% Black, 5% Mixed Race and 5% 'other'. However, it's also very run down, and the new Wembley Stadium redevelopment hasn't given much - if anything - to the local community. Brent had the 5th most homicides in London between 2000-2012, and has a bit of a reputation for knife and gun crime. It borders on insanity. You have the 'home of English football' built here. but apart from building some new (expensive) shops and flats, very little has been done to provide real regeneration for the local community. What the area needs is something to bring them together, to give them something to do and keep kids away from falling into the spiralling trap of the gang lifestyle. Something like a football team, maybe?
  13. Preface: Wednesday 17th November, 1993. “So, San Marino kick off. Remember Holland on this very ground. Oh! It’s a mistake by Pearce! And humiliation here! Gualtieiri! I was going to say San Marino conceded a goal in the opening seconds against Holland but it’s England that have conceded the goal here.” It’s strange how a goal can really be the most momentous achievement for a footballing club, let alone a country and let alone when that game ended 1-7. Yet, little San Marino, whose team is regularly ridiculed for having players who are teachers, bankers, carpenters somehow are. N.B – the night never actually took place in Serravalle, instead it took place 125km north west in Bologna, Italy. If that has already ruined where this story is going – I am sorry.
  14. RKC Waalwijk Well.. the arse recently dropped out of my laptop, meaning I'd lost all my fraud saves and work. Wanting to get back on the horse as soon as possible, I looked at new teams. New leagues. Same youth only policy. But....the choice for my next career was always there. Nagging at me. Tugging at my brain. Lurking in the depths. Calling me like a siren. And I'm back. I can give this team up any time. Any time I wish....
  15. Unió Esportiva Sant Andreu Welcome to my latest thread! I wanted to do a full-on youth only save, which is something I've not done in a while. As the Spanish league system is my favorite out of the big countries, I looked around the Tercera leagues (4th tier, via steam workshop database) and decided to go for Sant Andreu. My first thought of course was F.C. Andorra but I'll return to that one at a future FM, plus there's already another thread going on for that team. Besides, Andorra legend Ildefons Lima has a past at Sant Andreu so I still feel quite at home Sant Andreu has a long history in the lower regions of professional Spanish football, mostly playing in the Tercera or Segunda B divisions for the past decades. Their glory period was in the seventies when they played in the Segunda Division for a few years. Let's improve on that. Rules for this save are very simple: I can't sign any players. I've loaded the top 6 nations and the Dutch leagues, all with their top 2 leagues (except for Spain obviously) to hopefully make the game-world slightly more interesting as we go on. I've decided not to use "add players to playable teams", so the squad is quite barebones... Just hope the injuries are not going to be too bad... Top half of the table would be nice. No need to get promoted just yet. As long as I keep my job. We'll see how it goes. EDIT: Forgot to show this here, but as I was asked about it later on here is the tactic I'm using this save.
  16. I've decided to take a break from my other career as I wanted to do something slightly different other than jumping from club to club in very short amount of time,I thought about doing a youth challenge as my save from FM12 was without a doubt my favourite save.I then had the idea of taking it one step further by winning the five major continental trophies using only players to have come through the youth system. The major continental trophies I will be aiming for are the African Champions League,CONCACAF Champions League,Asian Champions League,Copa Libertadores and European Champions League with a team from these nations. Brazil - 4 Tiers Denmark - 4 Tiers Egypt - 3 Tiers Japan - 6 Tiers Mexico - 5 Tiers I've gone for nations where I've not seen many careers done on FM before.(I think Mexico and Brazil are the most visited of the five!) The order I will be going is Egypt,Mexico,Japan,Brazil then Denmark. For the advanced set up,I've made sure that the teams should get staff as well as add players to playable teams. The final thing to note is that when I do a nation,I will load other countries from that continent to give it more of a challenge when I get to the continental stage as if you just have the one nation loaded from the continent then most of the time a team from that nation will win their Champions League (or Copa Libertadores).
  17. Background This is an FC Andorra career topic . Wiki FC Andorra Piqué buys FC Andorra Starting in the 5th tier. The stadium name mentioned in this screenshot is wrong. I changed it when i restarted with the right database. Our ground is called Camp D'esports Prada De Moles with 531 seats. Rules : No transfers or loans (except the one's that signed already) - Youth academy only. Contract renewals are allowed. I want to get in La liga with a team full of Andorran academy players . Maybe i'll manage the National team in the future. Game setup Note : i'm using a database update with 5th tier from Spain included , with Pique as secret owner and fan and with five future transfers for next season (players they signed in real life) . I also changed the stadium (they had an old stadium with +- 900 seats, in real life they play in the Camp de Fútbol de Prada de Moles (530 seats) This is my first topic . I hope that i can continue this save till FM20 , posting about it will encourage me to continue. Thanks Sheriff7 for the editor file , kits and many information (and inspiration after reading his topic about FC Andorra) @Sheriff7 Thanks Andychar and scousevasey for the tips about Gyazo software . @andychar@scousevasey Thanks Mr Makoto Nakamura for the youth only inspiration(Croatia Berlin ) and skin. @Makoto Nakamura
  18. NK Pajde Möhlin (FC Rakitić) An Introduction I have always been fascinated by the idea of clubs playing in league structures that are different to their respective nations. Now I have found one that is 304.42 mi (489.92 km) from the nearest settlement in the clubs home nation . This club is NK Pajde, based in Möhlin Switzerland, and it is Croatian and 304 miles from Savudrija or 500 by road. I discovered this club by accident in a previous save, managing in Luxembourg, and a bit of research has given me the following information* - NK Pajde Möhlin is a football club of Croatian emigrants in Switzerland from the town of Möhlin - In 2012 they entered the Second League of the Swiss Canton Basel. On the occasion of this success, they played a historic friendly match with European star stars, friends of the chief club sponsor Ivan Rakitić: Vedran Runje , Ivan Klasnić , Mladen Petrić , Boris Smiljanić , Ivan Perišić , Emir Spahić , Mario Gavranović , Ivica Dragutinović , Franco Di Jorio , Granit Xhaka , Damir Džombić , Josip Drmić , Ivica Grlić , Daniel Pavlović and the popular Bosnian-Herzegovinian actor Enis Bešlagić - Pajde are the most successful Croatian football club in Western Europe, according to their wiki page - In reality Ivan Rakatic is the main sponsor of the club and I will put his branding on the kits I have made, his Dad Luka is the President of the club and his brother Dejan is first team coach. This will change as the game has generated a new chairman and I will be managing. - In my previous save the club seems to have generated Croatian youths during the save so I am keen to see if it continues to do so moving forward. The plan for this save is going to be youth only, I have spent a lot of time reading various saves here so am looking to do my own, scousevasey’s BeNeLux save is a great read and Makoto Nakamura has done a similar save in the German leagues. I have got a few rules to go with here; This a youth only save I am going to play a possession based tactic, being an Arsenal fan this appeals to me, and with Ivan Rakitić as a main stakeholder I would like to imagine he would want this I will try and sign Croatian staff but imagine this may be a problem early in the game, so will also sign Swiss staff as we are in Switzerland First Post incoming. *if anyone has any more information on this club or anything I mention then let me know, most of my knowledge comes from translated wiki pages and a few posts on instagram.
  19. US Granville I recently started a save game with US Granville. The choice of the club is quite simple: during my holiday last summer, I fell in love with the region Normandy. We were on a campsite near Granville, so I saw their stadium almost every day. That’s were the idea started to start a savegame with them in Football Manager. First some background information about the club, thanks to Wikipedia. History Union Sportive Granville, commonly referred to as US Granville or simply Granville, is a French football club based in Granville in the Lower Normandy region. The club was founded in 1918 and currently plays in the Championnat National 2. This is the fourth tier of the French football league system behind Ligue 1, Ligue 2, and the Championnat National. Granville share a partnership with nearby professional club SM Caen.[2] In season 2015–16 they had a fantastic run in the Coupe de France, eventually losing in the quarter finals against Olympique Marseille (0-1). In 2018, Granville beat Girondins de Bordeaux 2-1 in extra time, on 32e of Coupe de France. Youth only This will be a Youth Only based save. I allow myself to buy back academy players who I’ve sold. But I won’t buy any other players. Although I’m inspired by the likes of @optimusprimal82, @Jimbokav1971 and @_Ben_,I will not post very detailed posts as them. I would really like to, but as English is not my native language, it’ll take too much time to write them. So I’ll just stick to short updates with a lot of screenshots. My mail goal: win the Champions League with US Granville. I know it is possible, as I won the CL in FM17 with IR (Iceland). I’m currently managing in the second season. In the next post I’ll show you how the first season went. From then I’ll regularly update during the season.
  20. From Obscurity To Sirius Contenders: Turning Uppsala Upside Down Uppsala is the 4th biggest city in Sweden, behind Stockholm, Goteborg and Malmo. Unlike the big 3, Uppsala has not been successful in conjuring up a football team that can compete on a national level, let alone on an continental level as with Malmo and IFK Goteborg. My aim is to bring success to Uppsala via IK Sirius. Club Overview The club had a few seasons in the Allsvenskan back in the 60s and 70s but in the turn of the millennium they found themselves in the 4th tier. In recent years they've clambered up to the top flight for the first time in decades, finishing a record 7th in 2017 but came back down to earth with a finish just above relegation in 2018. A small, falling apart stadium shared with the Bandy side in the winter months and average all round facilities. Better than some, but by no means the facilities required to challenge. The Manager My alias is Olle Kullinger, a man described as a 'prodigal son' who captained the side to back-to-back promotions in the clubs centenary year. The Players An aging but relatively well balanced squad who from first glance should be able to keep us away from relegation. Ahman-Persson is the only player in the first team born in Uppsala. He's going to need to be a leader for us in the next couple of years while we hope that the young players coming through the junior section will be good enough to step up. If this is anything to go by we're in for a long season. Here we go!
  21. I decided to do a San Marino challenge based on the one that @Bedese does with one difference. I will be playing as Murata were decent but not good according to the standings in my game. I'll also try to keep a few things like biggest transfers, first goal... first player to get to top 4, etc. One thing I did consider to make it interesting is rebuying back players. For example I can sell someone to a team... and then in two years I can buy him back if they keep him on the bench ala Chelsea. ( A previous save actually loaned a player I used as a starter to a worse team the year after I sold him to them) Anyway, here's some history: Here's our hero who gave up soccer at age 5 only to rediscover it in his twenties after his hair fell out. You may have noticed... I started early. I likey our board. My team has issues according to the assistant coach: Speaking of Mr. Ass Man. He's the type that drops Yo into every phrase as he makes them tumble down hills. to learn balance. He gets the youth somewhat but stinks otherwise. I'll be judged upon the youth so hopefully Yo-Yo will find some magic. My goal this year is simple. Don't suck.
  22. The last time I played full fat version was FM12, only purchased FMT version of 19 but could have set this up on 16, 17, or 18 but decided to stick with my favourite version, not really had a long save on full fat since FM10, I have wanted to give a youth only save a go for ages having seen and followed so many careers on here, only problem on FMC & FMT is the youth intakes are low, have tried with limited signings. Anyway want to give it a proper go, I have set my club up at Level 7, also because I have set Stopsley Utd up on FMC using the lnc file they will also be in this game in place of Margate, so they start in same division as us, I have made them rich so they should rise a lot quicker than us. Well that is if we rise, we might fall further down, I have England loaded down to Level 11.
  23. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/apr/04/real-san-andres-the-colombian-club-who-relocated-1000km-from-home Welcome to the wacky world of Colombia, where the leagues are confusing and where the nation has had a...troubled history, but this is the story of Real Santander, the club who moved 441 miles away from the nearest point of mainland Colombia just to be able to keep playing football. The club is brand new so I will be making history with the club, the aim being to take the club to the top using only players coming through the youth system. In real life Real Santander plan to move back to the mainland in 3 seasons, I hope this isn't replicated in FM as I want to take the islanders to the top using only islanders. We have a big, young squad! The youth team is empty though.
  24. Here we are again, I won the Champions League with Amathous but now we're going to Africa and there are a few rules I'm adding. I'm not allowed to sign any players. The DoF or whichever member of staff is available is also not allowed to sign any players. Even though this is a journeyman I'm not allowed to apply for any jobs, I have to be headhunted. The goalkeeper has to take all free kicks and penalties. We must always bless the rains. After 10 years in charge of a club, or reaching legend status, I am free to apply for another job if no club has approached me. I won't be starting unemployed but I will be starting with the team predicted to finish bottom in the lowest ranked league in Africa which is Miracle du Sud in the Mayotte Lower League. I've also set my manager as a Mayotte native.
  25. Welcome to the spa town of Buxton, famous for cheap bottled water and not so famous for their football club. The bucks have been in existence since 1877, and play at Silverlands. It has a capacity of 4000, with 490 seats (some of which were salvaged from Maine Road, once home to Man City.) The squad is average, but most of the talent is on the older end of the spectrum. My backup keeper started the file by hanging up his boots before a ball was kicked! He is now our scout. There is one thing Buxton are unbeatable at: the highest ground, sitting over 1000ft above sea level. This will be a youth academy only challenge, and I will, for once, be making my own tactic. I will also, where possible, promote staff from within the club. Manager is Sunday League reputation, no badges. I have simmed one season to get them promoted! Next update: Mid-season, squad analysis and tactics. Aim for the season: Survival. Fa Cup run.
