  1. 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 have a thread every year I think we'll just have an overall youth challenge thread so that people that might still be playing an older version can still record their progress and get involved with the chat. 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. The Available Countries Previously any Country in Europe is eligible as long as you can get a previously unplayable side promoted from Holidaying, however from now on we're happy to extended it to the rest of the world as well as long as the team meets the criteria of being previously unplayable. The Reset Dates (Dates will appear when they have been confirmed for FM19 and if the country you pick isn't listed below just let me know the reset date and I'll add it) Argentina - July 15th Austria - June 14th Belarus Belgium - June 30th (but save on 6th April as that's when the playoffs are) Brazil - Jan 2nd Croatia - Czech Republic - June 30th Denmark - England - June 25 Finland - November 24th France - June 20th Germany - June 20th Holland - July 6th 2020 Iceland - Italy - June 30th Northern Ireland - Norway - Poland - June 20th Portugal - Romania - June 30th Russia - Scotland - 5th May for the playoffs Serbia - Slovenia - June 30th South Africa - July 15th Spain - Sweden - Switzerland - Turkey - June 20th Wales - Database Settings Mandatory Only load the Nation you’re managing in 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 Also from now on I will allow people to load more than 1 league in their starting database to add a bit more immersion into their saves. You don't have to add any more than the country you are playing in (my laptop is awful so I most likely won't be) 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. I have copied and pasted last years starting post to get the ball rolling, I will update with necessary information as we get going (let me know dates for leagues so I can add them) Good luck to all
  2. Welcome to my first career thread. Having lurked on the site since the Beta of FM17, and being inspired to try different styles of gameplay, now comes my first attempt to document a save. Background Having grown up with CM01/02 and remembering the split between CM and FM, there were a few years away from the game, having purchased FM09 then a gap until 17, I was looking for something different than taking over Liverpool (own team) and failing to avoid the sack. Stumbling across the forum I was drawn to the different styles of play and challenges, trying out the British Steel Challenge in FM17, and a Youth Only save using the Level 22 database (only going to L10 though) with Hayes and Yeading in FM18. While I haven't decided to make the leap to FM19 yet, I want to try documenting a save, seeing what happens as I try, usually fail, and how strictly I can stick to the rules I have enforced. Game Setup As the title suggests I am loading up the divisions in Belgium, Holland, and Luxembourg. I have also added the big 5 as low as they will go (Claassen megapack loaded) as view only Filtering for the leagues available, I am going to start in Luxembourg as unemployed and to see what happens

  4. A youth player who's just come through the Youth Intake has for his Short-Term Plans: "Wants to break into the first team". Except, in Germany, he can't play until the season he turns 17, so for eighteen months or so.

Should I not be yielding any ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ current ability? Like surely the boxes I’ve ticked I should have a desirable intake after 15-20 reloads?
  6. Introduction: I’ve been playing football manager since 2014 version and long-time following this forum. I finally decided to dip my feet in writing a series following my first long-term save in FM 2019. I plan to start a somewhat open discussion of Dynamo Kiev club and my tactics. I intend to post regular updates on my squad and results as well as welcome feedback on how to improve my tactics and training. You can follow the story at the site to which I contribute: https://dictatethegame.com/ I decided to start this save while still in beta for two main reasons. The tactic I intend to try out is not one relying on breaking the current game engine to overachieve but rather on tried and true concepts that would hopefully be applicable to any version of the game. So no 3 strikers nor strikerless tactics. Secondly, I intend to do it with a club that is not from the top 5 leagues. I noticed in the last couple of FMs that the attribute changes between beta and the first patch could be drastic in players in Premiership, Bundesliga or the other “big” leagues. For obvious reason those leagues are more thoroughly scouted. For that reason I reserve those kinds of big saves for later in the year, once I tested out my tactic with a less known side. This year I chose Dynamo Kiev. What attracted me to this club can also be viewed as the 3 Pillars of my 5 Year Plan: 1) Youth Development, 2) Domestic and Continental Success and 3) Implementing Hard Pressing Tactical System inspired by Valeriy Lobanovsky I hail from Ukraine myself so naturally I always followed clubs from this nation. My all-time favourite player growing up was Andriy Shevchenko. One of my earliest footballing memories was watching Dynamo Kiev’s systematic dismantling of Barcelona’s defense in Nov 1998 Champion’s league. Sheva scored 3 goals in that match. Dynamo went on to beat Barcelona 7 to 0 in aggregate. He was part of an elite class, all nurtured at same time by the club. Players such as Oleh Luzhny (later won the Premier League with Arsenal), Serhiy Rebrov (totaling 75 appearances for Ukraine) are just a few examples of the “Dynamo effect” – taking local youngsters and molding them into superstars through hard work and intense fitness conditioning. So to reflect this objective will be to develop a class of homegrown players over the first 5 intakes and then to integrate them into my first team over the following 5 seasons. So by 2028-2029 to have only youth academy products in the 22 player squad. On my way there I’m hoping to also have a positive effect on Ukraine’s National Team and become the foremost farm team for the National Team squads. Success in 1998 Champion’s League marked the revival of the club’s fortunes in late 90s when the manager Valeriy Lobanovsky took over for the second time. In total, he spent 3 decades with the club and its best years were undeniably with him. Becoming the fixture in Champions League and winning numerous domestic trophies were all part of this success. Lobanovsky relied on his signature hard pressing, direct style of play (what some might think of as Geggenpressing today). After dominating Ukrainian League from late 90s to early 2000s, Dynamo has had a bit of a decline due to the meteoric rise of its main rival Shakhtar Donetsk in late 2000s. In the last decade, Shakhtar has won 7 domestic titles in comparison to Dynamo’s 3. This is something that I intend to change, aiming for getting at least 4 titles in 5 seasons. Also Dynamo has not won a major continental trophy since 1985 (UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup) which I also intend to change by winning at least one continental trophy during my first 5 seasons with the club My final objective is developing a Lobanovsky style Pressing Tactic that is built around the player’s hard work, relentless physicality, stamina and disciplined selfless teamwork. By hitting my domestic and continental goals on time, I will know whether this tactical goal was achieved. As you might guess the mold of my ideal player will also be defined by this system (but more on this in future posts) Next: A little context on the Lobanovsky system
  7. -I cannot offer a contract to fresh youth intakes from other clubs via "approach to sign". I declared interest on them and some of them told that it would be a dream to play for my team. I made a bid for them that got accepted but noone wants to negotiate with me. I have uploaded a few screenshots. I have posted it again, a month ago but noone replied to my issue.
  8. I am playing FM2011 at the moment and there i saw that one of the clubs has an amateur feeder club with which it has a long term partnership which means it gets the best youth players from that amateur clubs. In real life alot of football clubs also have partnerships like this. What i really would like to see is that you can form longtermpartnerships like this with local amateur clubs. I like to play long term youth challenge games so it would be really nice when you can expand your range of youth players coming in like this. So for instance im playing with Cork City at the moment and when i form a long term partnership with a club from Dublin you should see the following year at least 1 or 2 youth players coming trough from Dublin.
  9. I would really love to be able to see my youth team's trophy under the "club" page. perhaps as a seperate page. with so much emphasis as you CAN put on youth and also because some clubs has it as a backbone in their identity (man utd, ajax, barcelona etc.) it would be cool to be able to show more clearly that you have an emphasis on this by having the trophy cabinet for them
  10. Although you can see the squad depth and future talents coming through via the squad depth screen and selecting the u23s and u18s, i feel this is messy Instead there should be a table showing current first team players and then future players based on age ranges or squad status, all ranked on potential ability therefore you have an easy and really simple way to identify the future talents coming through in your club and where this sits within your long term planning of squad composition. See attached for very rough example Any thoughts?
  11. At the start of the game I just delagated this to someone else as there was a lot going on. But now I want to revert control back to me but I can't see how? The drop down menu is greyed out and unselectable now. Any help would be appreciated.
  12. I'd like to reduce my youth system, to save resources. I wonder what happens if I move all U18 into U20 and fire all U18 staff and deadwood players. Has anyone tried this, or can share some thoughts on why this is a good or bad idea? Thanks.
  13. Hi all, For a long time, I've wanted to make Jamaica a consistent world cup participant on football manager. In the past I've achieved this by improving the domestic league and improving the clubs, youth recruitment and facilities through the editor, so that a few years down the line we get pretty decent regens (one of them becoming a key player at Barcelona xD). However, in FM19 I'd like to do this without the use of the editor (though, I will have to use it to add the Jamaican domestic league as a playable league). My plan is to manage 2/3 clubs in Jamaica, and improve the youth facilities, recruitment and coaching so that we get a good number of decent regens coming through each year. I suppose my question is; has anybody got experience of doing something similar (for example the classic San Marino challenge!) and if you have, how long did it take to see a "return on investment"? Any tips/stories would be appreciated!! Peace
  14. Yeah, so here's the most common fm question your going to get 'whats the best young talent' But, I pretty much have covered the hole of europe with my scouts, so would like some players from the other continents. I vaguely know some Argentinian players and Brazilians, eg rodrygo, pavon, richard etc, but any help in other regions would be appreciated Cheers
  15. Hi I just started a new career in a Vanarama National League North team, Southport, and wanted to see what will happen with a great training and a youth academy and bought the consumable "create a youth academy" but nothing happened! I see that I still have the worst youth academy and the worst training ground. Tried to restore transactions but nothing changed. What should I do now?
  16. After playing a few seasons, finding young re gens becomes essential to a fm career, recently, I have started to use a technique, I can only describe as 'stock-pilling'. Where I find any promising player and buy them, this can mean I am buying 10 a season, and really makes the game very unrealistic, so my Q is, how do you find the best re gens? 1)I know the technique where you look at youth intake globally, and scout the majority, but surely there is a more effective way? 2)Also, how do you find re gens who will grow into high attributes, rather than the ones that will stagnate, or is this pure luck?
  17. Aye guys, I asked an earlier question about what new team to start with, and have decided to managed in a south american team, 'most likley from argentina or brazil'. I am not a huge expert in these league, so I would appreciate help on some topics. 1) What team should I start with-I would prefer one with alot of youth prospects 2) Some very cheap young players- as to my knowledge, teams in south america dont have a great starting budget 3)Just any tips-as I normally manage a big club in Europe, so any tip would be great Cheers!
  18. I have been playing FM14 for a few years now but very casually whenever I need to kill some time. Anyway I am managing Man U. As Man U I am not allowed to have any Under 21 team coaches. I have 3 coaches but I am advised to have 0. When I talked to my board I can only ask to decrease the Junior coaching budget. I am not even sure if this will increase my U21 coaches. Under the staff section I cannot ask to additional coaches. Can someone let me know how I can increase the number of coaches I am allowed.
  19. I loaned out a youth player with a surprisingly profitable contract: the monthly fee is 3x the annual salary, til the end of season. This is by far the best loan deal I've seen. Is this common?...
  20. It would be nice to have the option to turn off U18 and U20 match results and other updates. Other than occasionally checking the development of specific youth players, I have no interest in following up those squads so closely.
  21. When making senior players available for U23 games from the email, the calendar freezes after pressing continue and does not progress forward, also, matches sometimes don't show up on the calendar and its blank when continue has been pressed.
  22. Even though I have set myself to handle all responsibilities, I'm finding that my youth player's contracts are being signed. My Youth Development Manager does not have this responsibility, neither does the youth team manager. Is this a new thing? Or is it a bug?
