[FM17] Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again...

Recommended Posts

Because I have a mental issue, I just can't give up with this stupid San Giovanni thing, so we're trying it again. There's two main changes from the last one:

1: We can sign other Sammarinese U21 players. On the last save the other teams were actually producing some decent potential players, but they'd never develop. This should help out the NT. 

2, and the main one: We're using the ingame editor to sort out Youth Recruitment. It's starting at the default value, but once we dominate domestically we'll keep manually upgrading it to stay in line as the joint best in the country.

This is probably going to be a shorter save than the other one(s). I want to actually make progress now we have those two rules in to help us out. We need to win. No excuses.

Hall Of Fame:

Right, I actually want to remember to do this. The best ever players at the club will go in here to commemorate them.

Glad you are back on this again as I did enjoy you sammarinese save. I am glad about using point 1 as I did wander if not signing players might have had an impact on the lack of progress with the youth recruitment.

If you grow bored of San Giovanni at some stage, maybe take over Rotherham? 

Good luck!

I basically bought in every U21 my scouts thought had 5* PA. Nobody that great, but there's a couple of decent bodies in there.

Those are some okay stats, maybe? It's not great, but you never get gold from the first intake. On we go.

Coming second last with 24 points is a bit unlucky.

Knocked out on GD.

Schedule

Squad
 

Other Teams: Tre Penne beat Santa Coloma from Andorra 4-2 in the 1st CL Qualifying Round before losing 3-0 to FH from Iceland. La Florita lost 5-0 to Videoton from Hungary and Folgore lost 6-0 to Differdange from Luxembourg in the EL.

Next year: Probably about the same.

I'm glad to see this back and am interested to see how the changes affect the game.

I don't blame you for editing youth recruitment as it's clearly broken for the human player, and you're just changing the situation to what it should be, rather than seeking to gain an advantage over the AI.

Good to see it back. The addition of the new rules should help a lot.

We'll still possibly be at a small disadvantage because the level will only match the best in the country, not exceed it (even when we're dominant and the other AI teams are losing to teams from Gibraltar), but it should be a lot more balanced than last time, and it gives us some extra motivation to see the other Sammarinese teams do well. I'm excited :D

We always get a few SMR/ARG players in, not sure what the connection is there though...

He looks okay.

Looks like a reasonable fullback already. I assume his acceleration and stamina would improve. He should be San Marino's own Marcelo

I'm not even going to try and pick out a specific player from that. If my board would stop rejecting my request to improve Junior Coaching, we might actually get somewhere...
