Very happy seeing some of the pieces I added doing so well in Gacic, Bahi, Matkovic, Sloboda and Garcia!

Only for the CL Final! I figured I needed something less attacking and more compact, thankfully it did just the trick!

While @Makoto Nakamurasmashed it as expected, (in less time than it took me to do a single shift at work I might add), I feel that his greatest achievement has been overlooked by everyone. 

86fbdd472c5a92f8f9d619834f2c3572.png

To the best of my knowledge, I think he now becomes only the 2nd person in FM history to get a GK to score 20 goals a season. :eek: :applause:

It's a really impressive milestone and there were quite a few free-kicks in there rather than just all penalties, (I think I counted 6 free-kicks). 

Seriously, this is a big big deal. Well done @Makoto Nakamura

This save got me playing again while I was waiting for it to be my go. 

I'm no playing in Wales and loving it. I've banged out almost 2 seasons since I finished which is a similar rate to you and @Makoto Nakamura, and considering I also set the game up and holidayed for a season, that's pretty damn impressive. 

What I liked about the way you played with how bold you were in your decisions. You were.... clinical. You just made your decisions and went with it. I would love to see you do that with a really small club, (like @Makoto Nakamurain Faroe Islands or myself in Wales). Not sure what type of save you usually play but there is something special about any success you get with a tiny club. 

Wherever you go, if you post about it I will read. :thup:

I have been ready your adventure in Wales, I think a good reason this joint save has been great has been to see other peoples work and get interested again

I kinda did the small thing with Metalist, took a 2nd div team to back to back wins in the Champions League. I am looking at clubs right now, Slovenia seems nice and they are a very tiny country, I also prefer the vanilla game and not imported DBs as I get paranoid they will break.. I really enjoy the Eastern Side of Europe, the West does not interest me.

I have so much time on my hands right due to be home full time basically with the COVID-19 craziness that I would bang out 10 seasons in a week probably

  11. Smp20 <------------------------------------ WE ARE HERE

If anybody is interested in joining let me know and your name will be added to the bottom of the list. If nobody comes forward then after @smp20 has finished his season it will go back to the top and @wynter will actually have a season where he has to play some games!

I've made the decision not to change the order but keep it as it is. It wouldn't be fair if somebody near the top draws near the bottom and has to wait another age for their next turn. 

This save has no end goal. Win as much as possible in as many places as possible I suppose. Thanks to everybody who has taken part, its been really fun watching it unfold.

Hi guys really sorry but I'm going the have to pull out of this one! I'm already working 9-5 from my home office seat so I need to lay off it in the evenings and actually get moving! (Under the orders of the Mrs of course)

@Makoto Nakamura please can you send on your file to @wynter so you can start the cycle again.

Good luck and I will be following :)

Looked at the job market straight away to see if there was anything interesting.

On a whim... I knew precisely where I wanted to go. Or rather, I knew precisely where I wanted to drag the rest of you.

That didn't mean I didn't count out other clubs though.

Option #1

e68eb658a6d0fd511dd4828096f27e8c.png

Basque-Only would have been a fun challenge... But at the same time wasn't entirely enthused.

Option #2

aae4fa850f89b6807930337ff79e7008.png

Celtic and Rangers, the Champions of Scotland and both from Glasgow. The save was founded with a very simple principle #****Glasgow.

In the end, decided not too as I felt it might have been a step too down and I also don't like the Scottish League.

Option  #3

b599492996721e015d0bcb1cdd60f2e8.png

Mineros was the most tempting.

In the 2nd Division Mexico but with Secure Finances. Offer of a 4mil TB was interesting and the club had been founded in 2014. Assumed there was some serious bankrolling going on and that it had the potential to be a fun option in challenging the established Mexican clubs. 

e623c73748572ed3c8c8b5c0af6918e1.png

4* Youth Facilities, emphasis on Yute development and fans of Controlling/Attacking gootball.

I very nearly hit accept, but as you can see it was December and my plan was very nearly possible.

 

A plan I say?

tenor.gif?itemid=12813012

When I took over from Mako I loaded one more league, One which wasn't available til January but one I was also happy to wait for if nothing too attractive came up.

Where are we going?

First things first, Andrew and I just talked it over. I'll be taking this entire season that I've simmed into. Colombia operates on a different time-span.

It starts Jan and Ends December.

Rather than doing Half-Seasons each, Andrew proposed that I play this season to the end. Then we all run one season at a time, so the Europe Model, just an 18 month layover from my end as we get up and running in South America. If anyone has problems let us know :)

The Squad

0678811dc507598b71a6ae0b2d5645d5.png

A very brief squad look. Overall it's a decent team, held up by two very brilliant tallents.

ff309eb68dd9232cdb35020303910209.png

Aasruud is this beastly monster of a man who pulls the strings in the final third.

And when Aasruud sets them up. Barrios will slot them home.

f9f589e3a841ad6cff0a5741eac57e85.png

Problems

We have mass shortages in the defensive side. Absolutely no quality CBs and our Right Flank is dreadful.

85f9ea1f366927cd977fa7f8a4832b6b.png

Investing in defence is my focus.

Advantages

85f9ea1f366927cd977fa7f8a4832b6b.png

The side actually has a LOT of potential. We have a nice Youth Set-Up to really invest in if we put our mind to it. And yeah, up front is stacked.

 

Tactic

Changing Lanes

f882d6da8ba79153e2ee2d4181dbfeca.png

What I'll be running for the immediate future. Heavily offensive driven which you know, tailors us completely.

I don't expect anyone will have an issue with this. 

I'm guessing that everyone's lives are but up in the air at the moment so nobody should feel that you have to do this when it comes round to you. If your personal circumstances have changed then I'm sure there will be someone else free who can pick up the baton. 

I would also say, there is absolutely no need to be intimidated by the performances of the likes of @Kingofcm03& @Makoto Nakamura. Nobody is expecting everyone to be able to perform wonders like them. No matter how well or badly you do it's really not a problem. I few rough seasons actually make the hood seasons all the more sweet.

Ugarriza

ee2ac781bb7bf0da5292e4612696ee5a.png

Main signing, we needed a gun RWB and aside from the dribbling he was the best around. High speed and Work Rate makes up from some other mediocre factors.

Borkovic

bbdae22f0209f87d876822d44005167f.png

One of our Rijeka starlets was out of favour and he popped up in our scouting pool. 500k for a BPD, takes up a Foreign Player slot but we released two of the players who had been previously so he adds solid steel to our backline.
