    Season 3
    It’s simple: improve. That is the plan, and that is what happened. An excellent campaign in which we almost won everything ended with a narrow loss in the Champions Cup final. It’s something I am content with though.

    We improved our league goal tally, which was great, and utterly destroyed a team I had never heard of in the Cup (with Felix suspended).

    Not entirely sure what’s happening with the duplicate outgoings - a bug? - but Paqueta and Rabiot had finished their usefulness to me... 

    ...as Diawara and Sancho came in to strengthen the squad. Diawara is my main DLP and Sancho backup in a few roles. The other signing is a young German keeper.
     
    Felix won a few more awards along the way. I’ll stop posting these in future as they get a bit repetitive.

    But he continued his high-scoring matches, grabbing a four and a five. Yep, a five goal haul for someone who isn’t a striker.

    He ended the season at the age of 21 and looked like he was becoming an absolute monster.

    If he wasn’t real I’d be thinking he was a Ronaldo regen (with a few tweaks). He has improved in just the right places.
     
    So how did he do? Well he had 48 and 58 so far and this season got...

    ...75. Delighted with that. A +17 season.

    181/1000 goals so far.
    819 to go.
     
    In terms of my mini-target of reaching 425 at the age of 25 he needs 244 more in 4 seasons. 
     
    Thanks for reading.

    The Neil Warnock Promotion Challenge
     
      This is a simple challenge and is in a similar vain to The New Stadium Challenge in that you can play the game in almost anyway you want and with almost any team you want and still get onto the leaderboard. In case you don’t know who Neil Warnock is he is currently in charge of Cardiff City and is the arguably the most successful lower league manager in the history of English football based on the number of promotions he has won in his 35 year.
    He has won 8 promotions with 7 different clubs.
    Scarborough: The Football Conference winner 1986/87  Notts County: Football League Division 3 Playoff winner 1989/90 Notts County: Football League Division 2 Playoff winner 1990/91 Huddersfield: Football League Division 2 Playoff winner 1994/95 Plymouth Argyle: Football League Division 3 Playoff winner 1995/96 Sheffield Utd: Championship runner up 2005/06 QPR: Championship winners 2010/11 Cardiff: Championship runners up 2017/18 He is also an interesting character who has a tendency to fall out with people so his Wiki is well worth a read. 
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Warnock
    The Challenge 
    Every time you win promotion with a club in any save you can have it added to the leaderboard. This can be with any club in any lower league in the game and the promotion can be via league position or winning a playoff and the promotions don’t all have to be from the same save.
    Simply post the required screenshots in this thread or start a career thread so we can follow your progress.

    No editing of any sort including hex or IGE. No unlockables unless earned in the save. No reloading. Have fun.

    Season 2
    As sad as it sounds already, each season now is about three things:
     
    Keeping Felix fit; Improving the quality of the squad; Improving Felix’s attributes  
    Everything else - trophies, job security, and more importantly goals - are the by-products. 
     
    Two players joined this year. Asensio is one of the best in the game and is also a brilliant back-up if Felix is injured. I think Nuke also got him cheap in his save. Bargain. Scarpa is a squad player and only plays if absolutely necessary, but the depth is required. A couple of stinking turds left.

    We won everything bar the League Cup. I had made a couple of tactical tweaks that tightened up the ship but also kept the goals flowing. 

    We scored 111 in the league which is an improvement on the 105 last year. Felix also got his first ever four goal haul. 

    He also pretty much did a clean sweep on the trophies, except for Best in Europe.

    It’s not surprising considering that at the end of the season he looked like this: 

    Those greens! The new training is weird, mind you. I focussed mostly on stamina and that barely improved, with the other time on dribbling and shooting, but everything seemed to improve at the same time. I barely trained aerial and that went to 16. He is 20 and already looked excellent.
     
    So how did he do? My target was that at the age of 20 he would have 100 goals. He got 48 last season so we needed 52 this season.

    58 in 58. A 0 season - a goal a game. 20 assists again with a slightly improved average rating. Job done.
     
    106/1000 goals scored.
    894 to go.

    Rob2017 got a reaction from Nucleus in A Strikerless 1kc attempt   
    Strikerless challenges massively appeal to me. Getting a Strikerless 1kc, or at least in goals in to the 900s, appeals to me the most. Back in FMM2018 Asensio got 893 for me and was an utter phenomenon. He was the focal point of a Strikerless Bonanza with Lemar and Coman where we got a Strikerless Triple Threat and Double Trouble too. 
    But in this challenge I just want one Strikerless player who can smash as many goals in as possible and set a score high up @Foxy‘s leaderboard that will set a benchmark for people to try to surpass. For this I will need all the help I can get, which means:
    A big club in an easier league; A striker young enough to play for 17-20 years; A club with a good pot of cash, as this’ll need one or two big squad refurbishments; Mostly importantly, a player who fits my tactic. No point trying this if they don’t slot in properly! So which club did I pick?

    Yep, I went obvious - I opted for PSG. They play in an easier league, they have money to burn, and they are attractive enough to get whomever I want in. Their facilities and youth structure are both two grades off top notch so they’ll need improving.
    As for the player?

    I went for Joao Felix, who joined us for £54m. I liked the look of Dortmund’s English sensation Sancho, Meier from Bayern, Man City’s Foden, and even thought of going for someone a little older like Bailey, but opted for Benfica’s starlet.

    His physicals need improving, but he has the basics to turn out awesome, especially with the new focussed training system. His aerial and stamina are two of the things I hope are improvable.
    I have four mini-targets:
    100 goals when he is 20; 425 goals when he is 25; 750 goals when he is 30; 1,000 when he retires So there we go. That’s the set-up. Wish me luck!

    FMM19: Every Playable Nation
    The nations that are available to you during a save depend on the leagues you have loaded, as you require at least 50 players from that nation to be able to manage as their national team. I have loaded up the database in various combinations to try and ensure that this is as complete a list as possible. You will need to load the correct leagues to get some of these teams E.G. Load the MLS to manage Canada, Jamaica or Bermuda. The more players you load the more nations you will have available. A good rules of thumb is that if you want to manage an Asian nation on the list then load as many Asian leagues as you can.
     If I have missed anyone please let me know the combination of leagues you loaded and I can add them to the list.
    Asia
    Australia Bahrain China Iran Iraq North Korea Qatar Saudi Arabia South Korea Uzbekistan Africa
     Algeria Cameroon Cape Verde DR Congo Ghana Guinea Guinea-Bissau Ivory Coast Mali Morocco Nigeria Senegal Europe
     Albania Austria Belgium Bosnia & Herzegovina Croatia Denmark England France Germany Greece Holland Italy Kosovo N. Ireland Poland Portugal Rep. Ireland Romania Russia Scotland Serbia Slovakia Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey Ukraine Wales North America
