Real Life Career Updates?

Recommended Posts

I'll do my best. I'll be posting but it won't look pretty probably.

With the new game being released tomorrow I'm expecting quite a few new threads starting soon. Rather than us all putting [FM10] at the start of our titles, would people prefer it if I just add [FM09] to the start of all the old thread titles?

That would probably be better as I suspect there will more FM10 threads than FM09 threads.

Hi guys,

I'm intending to spend most of my FM10 time here once my copy of the game arrives. Still debating which leagues to run... I was thinking either at least one on each continent or running leagues where English/British managers have had some success (e.g. Spain, Portugal, Italy, Holland, Turkey, Scandanavia and a few Asian ones). The only problem is I wouldn't be able to include South American leagues (unless there's an English manager I don't know about...) and I would like to go back there..

Im sure there is, do some research ;)

Do you really need to tag the game version? Does it matter?

I think so, especially since the emphasis in this forum is the game rather than the write-ups.

The FM10 games will not be tagged, so as they are started they will replace the tagged threads on the front page.

I might have to join you here Dodgee - I don't think I will be able to afford the time to create a sign up etc and the one thing that sometimes puts me off the small to big club challenges is the limitation of just 1 country's league, so I think my progress will be documented here.

Hopefully by the time I have the game on Tuesday some whizz kid has already processed the lower leagues of Italian Football, so I can begin on Mark 2 of The Miracle of Castel Di Sangro! :)

Look forward to following your progress here WW. :thup:

My last few major saves on FM have all ended up being small to big club challenges and I haven't really had a career at more than one club since FM06 so it's about time! For now though, I'm waiting for my game to show up (stupid Turkish shopping website said they'd have it on UK release day and the shops wouldn't - turns out the reverse was true :mad:) and trying to decide which leagues to run. Right now, I'm leaning towards England, Spain and Turkey witj a few South American and Asian leagues thrown in as well.

I'm looking forward to posting my Billericay career in here, this way I can do detailed reports and not fear they'll get lost forever in dafuge's thread itself.

Rule 5 seems a bit odd, as we would like to put in a good word for nice updates (thereby KUTGW).

It is just to prevent people 'spamming'. To be honest, as long as people are not overdoing it no one is going to complain about the odd word of encouragement, although it is better to make comments that generate discussion, like adding a question.

Could a mod please close and delete my Zenit thread? I've just realised I'm playing with a small database and I hate that so I'll have to start again.

Thanks.

At last! My copy of FM10 was waiting for me when I got home today. Installing now and having a final think about what leagues to run for my new career. :)

no, it really isn't. This thread is to discuss the forum as a whole and how it could be improved etc, it's not simply a case of everyone posting links to their threads.

I thought I could remember Hopey or Purefun posting in here about countries they've included on their save, but after going through the 5 pages I'm obviously mistaken - it must be somewhere else!

The post was interesting because whoever it was talked about including countries around the one you manage in because it can be easier to get players loaned.

Does anyone remember this, or have views on it/do something similar?

I'll be starting my save over the weekend, and I'll be posting it here - I was just wanting to re-read this post.

My advice (assuming you're starting in England like I do) is to also load all the other big nations. This ensures lots of good newgens as the game goes on, which stops you from signing all the best players in the world and making the game too easy.

I'm currently running all leagues from Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, on a large database. It also stops England from dominating internationally as the game goes on. I've added Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland to that list before, which helps when you're in the lower leagues as there are more players to choose from closer to home. It doensn't make any difference once you work your way up to a big club though, so I left them out this time as I don't have any intention of managing in any of those countries.

I'm definately loading the big nations top leagues. And about 50 DDTs for the topl leagues of countries, to help with regens.

This is something to consider, which I'm not sure of. When you're in lower leagues, you may only be allowed to scout your border countries; but as you say, any of those lower leagues become redundant later on - unless you can loan players to them. I'm undecided on this.

Going to start up a new game for report in the next few days but wanted to ask the community a question first.

Shall I include a player career like I did in my last save "A Tale Of Two Saxons" or just focus on the managerial career?

Also names for the thread title welcomed, the one chosen shall recive a prize..

Is there a general rule between the openings of two different career threads?

Nope. Feel free to have more than one thread if you are intending to play more than one game and continue to report on them.

All I've done is add a new editor file and started a new save and my custom graphics aren't working :mad:

Think FM just wanted to toy with me - I deleted the graphics and re-installed (clutching at straws :o) and they worked ok.

After being sacked by Munster the last thing I needed was game/bug trouble.

Christ! This German 4th division is tough. I'm not even putting my name on my office door this time. I was insecure in October! I've turned it around a little for the moment. I've got a media prediction of 4th - the 3 teams favoured in front of me are considerably better, but then there's about another 5 just as good as me!

Playing quite well this time, with my usual 433 - just lacking a goal or two as usual. Finances are very healthy this time too. So I'll be gutted if I end up getting sacked again.

I'm not opening another thread though, just in case :(

33 played, 13 to go. Hanging on to the last play-off slot - 7th! Even if we make the play-offs we'll struggle to go up, as the top 3 teams are class apart from us and one of them will be in those matches. But I'd be happy with the seasons performance if we could make it to those games. Even though we've got a media prediction of 4th I think I'd keep my job too :thup: (and that would let me start a thread!!)

EDIT: my scouts found a player with a 9 letter name, only 1 of them a vowel!! LOL. Czyszczon - beat that :eek:

This forum is really dead, we need to advertise it round the forums just like CSE did with a sticky at the top promoting their monthly challenges.

That wasn't to advertise CSE, it was just so there was a cross-forum challenge, and tbf it didn't do anything to boost the amount of people in CSE as far as I am aware anyway.

Those weren't adverts, they were supposed to be challenges that brought various forums together. Not that they got that much interest :(

I think people are already aware of this forum, it has been publicised in GD quite a bit and we have already had a few people over from FMS and LLM. I just think that it will only appeal to a smallish number of people (a bit like the two aforementioned forums) so will always have a relatively small number of visitors.

This forum is not dead. It's basically like what dafuge said. It doesn't appeal to most people. I prefer here and CSE the most because it's a smaller community. And also no heated arguments/whinings/'it's your tactics' stuff unlike that GD place. :p

As soon as I look at GD I ask myself why I've done it - I just feel like opening up with a machine gun, or lobbying parliament for sterilisation. Is this normal behaviour? Or should I really seek counselling?

Normal behaviour if you ask me, I only look at (most) threads in there for a good laugh!

Anyway, I've been internet-less for a couple of months now, but moving tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be able to start writing up my Scandinavian career on FM10 soon.

Glad to see the community is still going well on here, and there are a number of interesting games going on from what I can see :thup:

Well Hi to you all I just really stumbled upon what goes on over here when I was looking at the Journeyman career thread. Took time to have a look and I am hooked and have even started a career thread to show my first ever Journeyman career.

So to you all thanks for all your efforts and I am going to spread the word of this forum to the members of a Clan game I jointly run and I might post a career thread showing what goes on with our managers over there but that might be alot of work so we will see.

Just started a save with Eintracht Frankfurt, but I'm going to let it roll for 6 months or so before opening a thread.

We're going to take the Bundesliga by storm - but nobody's told the bookies! 1000-1 :o They'll regret that price when you lot pile on :cool:
