[FM18] 3 Lions on the shirt but 11 apes on the pitch, life as the England manager

Recommended Posts

Shirt badge/Association crest

FM18 is here so hopefully this will be a save to ease me into the game, surely there can't be any bugs with the World Cup, European Championships, Confederations Cup or the Nations League? If I get sacked as England manager then I'll try and get a job with a different national team, until a few of the added leagues have been released anyway.

Leagues loaded:

England to Vanarama North/South, more will be loaded when I get sacked.

We have a database of 59,000 players with all internationals from every continent and every player with a national reputation.

And why England? Well, hopefully I can't be any worse or more boring than how we are in real life.

Here's the lineups for my first game as manager, and I've changed back to the default skin since I couldn't see the writing when changing player roles.

1st Half:

Not even 90 seconds!

And it's 2!

Defoe has been involved in all 3 goals, just 15 minutes in!

Kane and Defoe again!

4-0 up at half-time and we're cruising, elsewhere in the group Scotland are beating Lithuania and Slovenia are drawing against Slovakia. The big shock for now is San Marino holding Norway to a draw.

2nd Half

Harry Kane makes it 5 with a penalty, and his hat trick is complete!

But no clean sheet.

Terrible goalkeeping.

An easy win, shame Jermain didn't get his hat-trick though.

You picking Shrewsbury players has reminded me of this:

 

I doubt he'll play, although Danny Loader did make an appearance even though he;s on loan at Bristol Rovers.

Definitely following this! Hopefully you will add some silverware for the Three Lions mate! 

Thanks mate! It's definitely going to be tough, 12 of the squad that were in the squad for the Estonia and Israel games have 6 caps or less!

3 draws, but an unbeaten 6 months as manager.

The 2017 best XI with just Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane starting every game.

We've plummeted in the rankings though and are now between Mexico and Ghana.

Tough group! You will need to keep Spurs' Son quiet and not lose against France to hopefully finish top! Good luck mate! \o/

Hopefully Kane will be in good enough form to take to the WC and keep everyone at bay, fingers crossed for that top spot!

Here's our squad for the Spain and Uruguay games, with Alex Smithies, Jay Dasilva, Harry Winks, Troy Deeney and Callum Wilson looking to win their first caps, and with the amount of players only playing 45 minutes it looks likely that a few of them will get capped.

Very happy with a draw against Spain, Troy Deeney got his first cap and his first goal, 4 minutes after coming on with Harry Winks and Callum Wilson also debuting.

Nice thread! Where can I find the face packs?

Thanks Ironhide! I just copied over the FM17 logos and facepacks into an FM18 folder.

So the Second Round is the aim.

And here's the draw for the International League, we just can't get away from France, but at least we have Iceland and not Portugal.
