Welcome!

It may be a bit later than the real thing but it is here, the CSE Euro 2012 using FM 2012.

The last CSE Major tournament:

http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/212539-It-s-time-the-FIFA-2010-CSE-World-Cup-(OOTP)

I haven't asked GCB to do this but he is inactive so took responsibility!

As in the other thread:

What I need from you:

Regular forum visits over the coming days.

Football Manager 2012 on your machine.

A commitment to regular participation in the event - whichever country you end up managing!

The Plan of Attack:

As soon as I have 16/16 forum members ready to take part, I will randomly assign everybody a team from the Euros.

I will then upload a FM12 save game somewhere.

You will need to download it and choose a squad of 23 players for your country. This will be PM'd to me.

I will enter 16/16 human managers on my FM12 game and select the appropriate squad of players.

You will need to pick a starting eleven and tactics for the game.

These can be standard FM tactics or your own which can be emailed to me at a later date.

You will give me some instructions for substitutions and tactical changes.

I will play the games and report via the forum.

You can change your line-up and tactics for each game via PM.

Eventually, we will crown a CSE Euros winning manager.

I hope you're interested. If you're not completely sure how it's going to work, bear with it because it will work in the end as long as you can do the three things above. (Or read through the previous thread)

Definitely count me in...as Shadaza said though, only 16 nations :)

This year yes, but the next Euro's will have 32 teams plus it allows more players to join in.

EDIT- Will have 24 teams actually so I'll shut up.

hmmm, I would like to enter this. Though if you want to give my slot to a more experienced forum member I won't mind. Keen to follow this, the 2010 world cup thread was epic.

I took part in 2010, was a cracking game but sadly I can't commit to this one.

So have you edited the DB to allow the extra 16 teams to enter the 2012 tournament?

As people have pointed out I have made a horrible mistake, I knew there were only 16 teams competing but put 32 in opening post. No sorry, only the 16 teams from the current competition. I have got them into the finals on my game after a little tweaking!

Shame! I hope you enjoy the thread anyway.
I'll sign-up for this :)
Sorry mate, you just missed it due to my mistake, I will put you on first reserve if someone doesn't stay active!

CSE UEFA Euro 2012

The first country to be drawn are:

Czech-Republic-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

CZECH-REPUBLIC

Since their independence from Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic have never failed to qualify for the European Football Championships. In 1996, their first entry into the tournament, they achieved their best finish in the competition finishing 2nd. Can they replicate that this year?

They will be managed by:

nastymiller

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Country number two will be:

Italy-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

ITALY

This is a different Italy to the one we saw lift the world cup back in 2006. The old guard have left for the young guns to have a go. Can this Italy side really challenge for their second title?

They will be managed by:

marty78

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The third country out of the bag are:

Spain-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

SPAIN

The reigning European champions AND World cup holders, can Spain make it three major championships in three. With the lack of a real forward this year, it might not be as easy as planned.

They will be managed by:

toonbalmy87

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country to be drawn are:

Netherlands-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

HOLLAND

One trophy to their name, but a win has been a long time coming since 1988. Can they bring the trophy home this year?

They will be managed by:

Babaginoosh

We’ll be back with four more soon!

You can hardly do worse then the actual team. :)

Some good teams drawn already.

CSE UEFA Euro 2012

The next country to be decided will be:

england_gl_e0.gif

ENGLAND

England have always been backed by their nation, not this year. Less is expected of the boys after recent tournaments. Hopefully they are still contenders.

They will be managed by:

Tactic Master

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country out of the bag are:

Denmark-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

DENMARK

Not the first team you would put your money on, but that is what Denmark have to their advantage and they used this in 1992, Will they win it again?

They will be managed by:

William Hall

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country to be drawn are:

Russia-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

RUSSIA

Since splitting from the Soviet Union Russia have never really impressed. With a 3rd place in 2008 they might consider themselves on the rise. Many of their players are now at big clubs so their is definitely potential.

They will be managed by:

Shadaza

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country to be drawn are:

Croatia-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

CROATIA

Croatia's best results were quarter final finishes in 1996 on their debut and 2008. After an unsuccessful bid to host this tournament they will hope to seek vengeance.

They will be managed by:

Lower League Rule

We’ll be back with four more soon!

CSE UEFA Euro 2012

The next country to be decided will be:

Ireland-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

IRELAND

After the injustice of being knocked out by France in qualifying for the 2010 World cup, they are back. In only their second appearance at this tournament they still look like major outsiders. But this is football remember!

They will be managed by:

18Rabbit

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country out of the bag are:

Portugal-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

PORTUGAL

Every qualification has led them to a knock out round, but never a win. Can the arguably greatest player in the world Cristiano Ronaldo help them out this year?

They will be managed by:

5ergio

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country to be drawn are:

Germany-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

GERMANY

Most people call them the favorites, but nothing is certain. With a strong side, many playing for Champions League finalist Bayern Munich they look deadly from anywhere. Perhaps with a weak spot in defense will Germany triumph or fall like their representative team in the Champions League.

They will be managed by:

ri916

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country to be drawn are:

Sweden-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

SWEDEN

Best finish of 4th place when they hosted the tournament, do they have success flat packed and ready to assemble?

They will be managed by:

jimbowmanuk

Well, I guess since my ancestors were Irish, it's only fitting that I picked them up. This will be a trick to pull off. Looking forward to getting my hands on the save game. :)

CSE UEFA Euro 2012

The next country to be decided will be:

Poland-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

POLAND

Host nation number 1, debuted last time round not really impressing, will things change on home turf?

They will be managed by:

brettney1980

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next country out of the bag are:

UKRAINE

Well, host nation debutante. Can they be given a fair chance?

They will be managed by:

The next country to be drawn are:

Greece-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

GREECE

The last country to cause a major upset at a major tournament. In 2004 they lifted the trophy, is it feasible it could happen again?

They will be managed by:

kris0710

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The last country to be drawn are:

France-120-animated-flag-gifs.gif

FRANCE

Oh France! Stong footballing background and host twice with a third time in 4 years. They have also won this competition twice and rarely fail to impress at major events, unless you count South Africa. With all the trouble in the dressing room, can they really mount a challenge?

They will be managed by:

TheGreatTraveler

That's it! Please feel free to talk about the team selection and make predictions.

YOU HAVE UNTIL SUNDAY 00:01 BST TO SEND ME YOUR TACTIC OR A DEFAULT WILL BE USED TO BLEND YOUR SQUAD

I will put you on 2nd reserve, I don't think out of this bunch there will be any inactives but I will keep you in mind!

You can hardly do worse then the actual team. :)

Some good teams drawn already.

That is true! Lower expectations meaning you will look better!
Sweden that'll be a bit of a challenge
Well centre your game round set pieces (Larson, Ibra) You may be able to put up a fight!
Well, I guess since my ancestors were Irish, it's only fitting that I picked them up. This will be a trick to pull off. Looking forward to getting my hands on the save game. :)
Good luck man! Have some Irish luck. You have some talent in that squad, but can you use it?

With the likes of Arshavin and Zhirkov I am hoping to boss the midfield. Defence is a little bit more of a concern for Russia but really a solid all round team. Bring it on!

It will be a large file guys, I selected all players from Europe... 40.29MB I'm sorry if this is too large, I just wanted to be sure we got every player possible!

Date wise, this is straight after the playoffs so it will allow more room for blending. Down side is you don't know your available players BUT here is my schedule:

SUNDAY/MONDAY: New thread, upload new save at date of player registration.

TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY: Deadline for player registration.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY: Deadline for 1st match team

And so on. At each interval I will allow update of tactics too.

ALSO. When sending me a tactic can you also specify:

-The staff you want (Or keep them, bear in mind if you get rejected you will be without a member of staff up until deadline 2)

- Match prep (1 Type only)

- Friendlies to organise (No teams that compete unless both can agree on a date!)

HERE IS SAID FILE. DOWNLOAD NOW!
