Things you've never done in FM

86 posts in this topic

I'll get this started.

I realised today I've never kept a note/saved a note about anything in FM

I also noticed that I've never filtered any player searches by contract status -> unattached until today, as for some reason in god knows how many years of playing i never linked the word unattached to 'not playing for anybody'. maybe subconsciously i thought the player's legs were unattached or something...

anyway...

I've never created, edited or reassigned training schedules. Sign the coaches, auto assign the schedules and then let them get on with it.

I've never slept with the hot physio in Chelsea's backroom. Terry did though.

I've never been relegated either.

I, too, have never used the 'notes'.

Also, I have never ever had a new stadium. In any save game, in any of the games in the series.

To people not using notes; I use notes to remember which players respond good to either a higher or a lower form of praising during the season. I use notes for players in my team which my staff recommend certain playroles for (targetman feet / head / would make a good playmaker). I also use notes to remind myself of the date when a young player signs a full time contract so I know when to put a bid in for him (for those youngsters < 17 years of age who keep signing provisional contracts at their current club no matter how often you put a bid in). Just to give you an idea what they can be used for.

Back on topic: I've never managed an international side. I've never "spend big", no matter what club I have been at, as I hate spending large ammounts of transfer money. I'd rather spend low and develop youngsters info good players. I've never managed in South America or Asia. Sounds like there's still a lot left for me to do :)

Never managed in Asia or Africa.

Never spent more than 25m on a player or given 100k+ a week for a wage.

Never used the editor or FMRTE (how many people can say that!?!)

Never used Genie Scout

Yeah, notes for me as well.

Also using the tutorial. Actually, I tried once, just to find out it's useless if you are looking for details.

Praising players at other clubs is also something I don't do anymore since it takes so much time to talk to a journalist about it. When it took me one click I was happy to do that.

I have never ever won the Spanish Cup, from the CM series to the FM series, playing as some of the great teams, some of the average teams and some poor teams.

I don't think I am destined to ever win it.

If there was ever a bogey competition, I think that would be it.

Never have and never will manage or buy a Rangers player. I dont even pick them for Scotland squads. Sad i know.

I've used notes before for red cards; 1 red = warning, 2nd red in same season = wages fine.

I've never had a new stadium, managed outside of Europe, downloaded any tactics, been relegated, managed Spurs (yuck)

But I did win a silver medal at The Olympics with GB 2012, not that anyone cared in game. I was quite chuffed! :D

Used notes, set training schedules, managed outside Europe, done a proper journeyman save, used FMRTE or equivalent. Never reloaded once I had gone past a point ever. Obviously more as well, but they are the main ones.

I will never ever manage Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Manchester United or Rangers. Worst 4 clubs on the planet in my opinion!

Very true Tom but I couldn't honestly put my heart into it the way I can with any other club who I choose to manage.

Sorry but I take it far too seriously for it to be a game. I do enjoy FM but I have the same feelings towards clubs as in real life.

Bit strange, to say the least.

I've never won the League Cup.

I've never been relegated.

I've never managed to get one of my strikers to score more than 20 goals in a season.

I've never managed to get the hang of signing decent players on a free.

Since CM became FM, I've never got through a season in less than a month real-time. Jealous of those that have. Need a better PC.

I've used notes before for red cards; 1 red = warning, 2nd red in same season = wages fine.

I do this too. The only thing I use notes for.

Unfortunately I HAVE been relegated before :(

However I have never completed a season outside of the UK or had a game lasting more than 10 seasons (although I think I will get there on my current save)

And most regretfully of all I have never achieved any decent success with my real life team, Aberdeen.

I've never managed outside of Europe and, strangely, have never paid more than £10,000,000 on a player. Saying that I've only ever managed in the Premier League once and that was a disaster :lol:

I've never guided a small club up through the leagues to the highest levels of the game. And I doubt I ever will. I don't know how anyone does it.

I have never:

- used notes.

- managed a team outside Europe.

- started a game with a top league club.

- played with any more than the three tactics set up at the outset of the season.

- got the sack (apart from Fulham when they were taken over).

- played a save for more than 10 seasons.

- set up games around a play-maker.

- turned down a job offer.

- signed a player with lass than a 4 star potential rating.

That'll do for now!

Never coached a team outside of MLS.

Never used the nickname feature.

Never used the notes feature.

Have never had an active member of the Brazilian, English, French, Italian or German national squads on my roster (though that may change very soon as Brazilian U-20 striker won't stop improving and is now over an 8 avg/game.)

Never accepted a job offer from another team (including Real, ManU, Bayern, Inter, etc...where my personal salary would have been over double my entire MLS squad's wage budget!)

Never used the set piece creator.

This applies to me too and I've never got a team promoted (or relegated) as I only ever manage teams in top divisions.

- Never use TC Tactics "anymore"!!

- Never used nickname feature

- Never made a note

Aw sod it - Never used probably 70 % of the features in FM, want to buy players, create a tactic or two and play the matches. Want to be a manager not a psycholigist!! ;-)

It's the only way I play now and has been since 08. It is such tough task, but a great feeling as you climb the league

You should try it

For the last 4-5 editions I have never signed a player that doesn't have a face in his profile, whether it be one I have as part of a pack or one of the regen faces.

There are also some regens that I won't buy based on their hairstyle

Never used the notes feature really and only used the nickname feature once.

I have never:

- been a manager of an Italian club (but I have managed San Marino in the Italian leagues)

- been a manager of a French club

- won UEFA Europa League

- won a league game in Hong Kong (that's 2 seasons worth or a bit over 30 games)

Some of you need to get out of the UK and out of Europe. Asia and North Americans leagues are fun. :)
