FMCU Joint Save

Recommended Posts

The first leg at the Nuevo Mestalla was everything I've come to dread.  The only good moment was when Ibanez flapped at a cross, like a blind David De Gea, allowing United to draw level, albeit temporarily.

But dreams are fragile things.  Prone to breaking, if you hold them too dear to your heart.

We will travel to Manchester with a narrow advantage.  

Perhaps I can find some release along the canals.

A slow start but coming into fine form now. Up the bats! Love that you signed Vardic :D

He's been a huge signing!

Once the team started to gel, it came together. The quality was always there.  The question was simply whether we would get it sorted before the Board lost patience. 

You'd think I'd learn after doing this countless times in my own saves, but a squad culling is something I love to do...

Benny would probably enjoy that...

Had inquiries about these two players, thought others might be interested!

Over the course of my life, I've learned to fake emotions.  To appear human to the 'norms.'  To go to extreme lengths to feel anything even approximating an emotion.

But when Karamoko Dembele broke through in the 93rd minute at Old Trafford, a winding, purposeful run reminiscent of Maradona against England in 1986...  I felt it.

Love.  Lust.  Faith.  Desire.

An avalanche of emotion.  

I celebrated by pushing a small child into the Manchester Ship Canal the next morning, near the Woden Street Bridge.  Her mom wasn't pleased.  So I shoved her into the Canal, too.

It was delicious.

Down 2-nil to Atletico, it felt like all of my dreams were coming true.  Finally, another stumble.  One that could not be explained away by Managervich.

But, alas, it was not to last.  7 matches to play, and we're in pole position for the title.  

Why have you forsaken me, Sheela Na Gigs?!

For those who might be interested, the youth intake has 2 interesting players.  Although Kaarel Pankevitsjus might be my favorite new name.

Youth and training facilities are in the process of improvement, along with a stadium expansion.  That being said, $71M for 9k seats...I'm not good with math, but that seems exorbitant.

Vallecano, you sexy bastards.  

A win could have all-but sealed the title for Managervich, given the other results this weekend.  A horror I cannot begin to contemplate.

You are the real heroes, even if I cannot thank you openly.  I'll never forget what you've given for the cause.  As a gesture of good faith, I will untie the youth prospect of yours that I have sedated in the boot of the car.

With that name, it's a shame that he isn't good enough for Valencia.

And tough result against the devils, but the english teams have a little SI bias in their favour.

Four matches to play.  It appears to be down to Barcelona and Managervich...I do not know why this is happening, other than a test of my faith...or, perhaps, a challenge.  A demand that I step up and take bold action.

Barcelona draw away to Vigo, and Atletico lose at Getafe.  A chance for Managervich to seal his fortune.

But fate intervened.  Redemption is mine.  A loss away to Betis.  All to play for.

I must take a more direct hand in events, against the Basques on Friday...

The Basques are a truly majestic people.  Kings among men.

Managervich stands on the precipice.  Failure beckons.  I nudged him a little before today's match. 

Last night, I logged into his Netflix account and skipped ahead 10 minutes in all of the shows he was watching. Try enjoying Gossip Girl now, you ****.

On Saturday, Barcelona win -- the two most glorious words in any language.  Barcelona win.

Madrid lose on Sunday, the bottlers.  It's down to Valverde's men and Managervich... We face Levante and Getafe. 

Barcelona must travel to face Atletico in the Champions League, and then Real Madrid.  Godspeed, you Catalan beauties.

Disaster.  Levante miss the opportunity to deal their neighbors a mortal blow.  I expected so much more from them.  

This is why you don't trust people, Beinir.  People are bastards.  Bastard coated-bastards with bastard filling.

Which also makes them delicious.

Of all people in this world, the most vile, the most treacherous...I thought I could count on Real Madrid.

Trust is pain, Beinir.  Trusting is what leads to hurting.  Never again.

I was prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice.  An barrel of absinthe.  A book of matches.  

As the song goes, build a bonfire and put Managervich on the top. It would have been the perfect capstone to...everything. 

But guest services at the Nuevo Mestalla mistook the barrel as being intended for concessions, and after consulting with Peter Lim started serving it to the masses for profit.

Thus ends my tenure at Valencia.  The question being, what next for Managervich?!

I will continue to the day immediately following the CL final, and then upload the save for the next person!

Ok so we have a decision to make. @oriole01 is interesting in joining. Problem is he doesn’t own FM20 so would need to go next in order to get a season finished during the free week. 
I don’t want people getting annoyed because they are waiting for their turn and people are getting free passes to “cut in line”. 
So with that in mind let me know what you think. Majority wins. I think it’s the fairest way to do this. 
Go!

In my mind, the question is best left to those who've been involved from the start -- the people who not only spent a ton of time playing a season of their own, but have been involved/invested for months, while patiently waiting a turn.

When I say this, I don't mean it to be an exclusionary thing.  Because that obviously isn't what this thread is about. 

More that, as someone who didn't meaningfully contribute to the thread for months, I don't think my "vote" should count.  I haven't invested a fraction of what some people have to the joint effort, even if I'm trying to make up some of that lost ground now.  (When I threw my hat in the ring, I thought (and expected) that I would be going to the very back of the line behind everyone.  That's not what happened, obviously.  So, I tried to keep the save going in a "natural" direction for a journeyman, while using my 90% of me playing style.) 

Just my 2 cents!

I agree with @ManUtd1 in all of his post.

I've "skipped" the queue as well to get to be next in line, so don't feel my vote should count too much - but Id be happy for @oriole01 to get ahead of me for the record.

So at the moment this is where we are...

  1. Wynter
  2. Andychar
  3. Rikulec
  4. Ronaldo Beckham
  5. Noikeee
  6. Minuy600
  7. Mandy42 
  8. Jimbokav1971
  9. Makoto Nakamura 
  10. Smp20 
  11. Manutd1 <————————- We are here
  12. Benjoe
  13. Deisler26
  14. henri.melo00
  15. PT-KK

So next would have been @Benjoe and then @Deisler26.

One doesn’t mind and the other just wants to make sure nothing absolutely crazy happens. 

So is it fair to propose the following?

@oriole01 does the next season but he’s not allowed to leave Valencia.

Giacomo as of the day the save was passed on:

(Note: For the sake of clarity -- Ethan, Andy and others have the file and can see the editor was not used.  The icon is active in this screenshot because after I passed the save along, I moved over to my tactics testing save where I'm playing in the modern day, trying to blend Changing Lanes and one of my strikerless setups.  I don't want to spend months retraining players for a different position. :lol:)

I don't mind let oriole play before too, I am new here and I believe the situation should be explored (free FM 20). Good luck to him.

As my concerns for Africa, @Benjoe, there are none. I am here to see through this.

Congrats on the title, @ManUtd1, in the beginning and end of the season, it looked that the title wouldn't come, but it makes the taste sweetter winning in the last match.

i think this save is about being inclusive, so we should let people in to play, we are in the middle of the group of people who signed up after the "rollback" everyone who has been involved longer has had a turn already. 

the more the merrier in my opinion

I was reading this and thinking.... no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Cheating queue-jumping bast...... oh. @oriole01doesn't own FM20 and it's free to play at the moment. That seems like a spectacularly good way of getting an extra Manager involved. Sounds good to me unless whoever is next in line needs to play right now, (which is pretty unlikely given the state of the World).
