    FMM19: Tips for Lower League Success
    Lower league management (LLM) is one of the most satisfying ways to play FMM19 as you take your chosen team from lower league obscurity to the top table of world football. There are many aspects of management that you need to master to build your club and hopefully this guide will give you some ideas that will help you on your road to glory.
    This is written with a focus on the English lower leagues or more specifically my save with Oxford Utd but the tips can be transferred to any other nations lower leagues in the game.
     
    Don’t look for the perfect player, look for the effective player.
    This may sound obvious but you are never going to find the perfect player when you are down in the lower leagues and you will need to compromise somewhere when you sign players or evaluate your squad. This isn’t as big a problem as it sounds as every club is in the same position so it’s just a case of being clever and sniffing out the players that can be effective for you.
    What you need to do is concentrate on the key attributes for the roles you need and build from there. It is unlikely you will find a winger who can cross, dribble, run like Usain Bolt and also have good shooting and passing. The key is to work out what you want your players to do within your tactic and then look for players that have those specific attributes. If you have a big target man striker in your squad then look for players that can cross and are quite quick, if you have a quick striker with good finishing then look for midfielders who have good passing and creativity who can play through balls for him to run onto.
    Remember that the number you are looking for in each attribute gets lower as you go down the leagues so 14 crossing would be ok in the Championship but excellent once you get to the Vanarama leagues.
    To find out more on player attributes and what roles need which attribute please check out @PriZe A-Z guide under this link.
    Take this guy for example.

    Inih isn’t the greatest striker to ever lace up a pair of football boots, he lacks football intelligence and his stamina isn’t up to much either but he has some attributes that can make him very effective right up to League 1 level with the right players around him as well.
    You can see from his highlighted attributes that he has good key attributes for a target man but he is still a compromise as he lacks technique, aggression, teamwork and passing that would make him an even better target man. You can sign him from Dover for around £35k and if you can get wingers that can cross the ball he will get you goals as I proved in League 1 when I used him for Oxford.

    After his 44 goal season I then managed to sell him for £1m to Blackburn making an excellent profit on a £35k initial outlay whilst he also got the goals to help me win League 1.
    This brings me onto my next tip.
     
    No player is bigger then the club so sell if a good offer comes in and reinvest
    It’s understandable that you will become attached to the players that have been doing the business for you and that you may want to stay loyal to them as you move up the leagues but money talks at all levels of football. After promotion to the Championship it was clear to me that I would need a better striker than Inih if I wanted to challenge for promotion and his value had grown from £30k  when I bought him to £1.1m so it was the perfect time to sell whilst he was relatively hot property following his 44 goal season. I offered him out and Blackburn came in with a £1m so he was off.
     
    Sometimes it’s not a player that you know isn’t good enough for the level above and it’s a player that you would like to keep but the money is just too good to turn down.
    That’s the situation I faced with Cameron Brannagan who was developing into a good Championship level midfielder but that was attracting the attention of other clubs.

    As good as he is for the level of football we play when Leeds came in with £6m for him I didn’t think too much about it before I accepted the deal. That £6m could go a long way with half of it going into improving the squad, plus a good increase on the wage budget which help in getting us promotion ready. I was then able to convince the board to improve the training ground twice meaning it went from a below average to a good rating which will enable more of my players to improve then just one midfielder and it sets us up for the next few seasons behind the scenes.
     
    Look to sign youngsters who have been released or transfer listed
    This method can be applied to any age of player and you want a good balance in the squad between youngsters who are developing through game time and training and players that are at their peak and are good consistent performers at the level you currently play.
     You can often pick up bargains at the end of the season as bigger clubs cull there reserve players that are out of contract. They may be players that will never make it at the top level but they could be good enough at your current level and they may develop to play a level or two higher or after a good season or two you may sell them at a profit. This rule also applies in the transfer market and it is possible to pick up players that other clubs don’t want at a cut price if you spend the time to look for them and are willing to haggle.
    Personally I love a freebie so I like to look for the players that have been released and start to look around for these players in January using the player search. You could look by positions and add in some attribute filters as well but I like to start with a general search of all players that have contracts expiring,  are 21 or under, have an EU passport (if I am managing in an EU country) and would be interested in signing for me. I can then look through the full list and see if anyone takes my fancy but that is a personal choice and you may want to refine the list by position from the start. I can then start to refine my search after I can had a scan through the full list and I often use value as a guide as if I can get a fairly high value player for nothing then great.
      
    This search turned up a few interesting players that I could then add to my shortlist to make sure I can keep an eye on them. One useful thing to do is not be blinded by looking for attributes that are good enough at the time of signing for the to play in the team now. This Italian striker caught my eye as a good example of the type of player I would look for as he has some good base attributes as a target man and he is only 17.

    He isn’t going to be good enough at a higher level but if you could get him in at a smaller club he could be a useful player and with playing time he is very likely to improve and could prove to be a good player that you eventually sell for much more then he cost.
    You can’t solely go on value though as I found this GK as I looked based on youngest players and he would be a good signing lower down the leagues in my opinion as he again has the base attributes and if you can give him some game time then he could develop and with a current wage of £50 I’m sure he would be affordable.

    The important thing to remember is that these players need to get some playing time in order to develop so it’s important not to stockpile these players and then stick them in the reserves to rot. Time on the bench can often see a player improve a little when they are young and you can also try and loan them out for a while if you don’t feel they will get the playing time they need.
     
    Improve the club facilities as often as the board will allow you

    If you want to get even more out of these players then better facilities are going to help, as this allows you to have more backroom staff which is going to benefit the players development and health as you can have extra physios as well. I personally would always focus on the training ground before the youth facilities as I can’t see much point having good youngsters come through the youth setup if they have a ploughed field to play on once they are in the first team. Once the training ground is getting better you can then think about asking the board to improve the youth facilities but trying to do both at the same time is going to eat into your transfer and wage budgets so I like to concentrate on just one at a time.
     
    Exploit the loan market

    This might not be everyone’s cup of tea as it isn’t realistic because in real life there are restrictions on loans that aren’t in the game but this is a game and I am happy to exploit something that is in the game and isn’t cheating.
    It could be seen as short term thinking as you are essentially helping other clubs develop there youngsters but in the lower leagues you need to balance long term thinking like updating the training ground alongside the immediate priority of getting promoted. When money is tight you need to make every penny count and the loan market can mean you bring in players that are of a better quality then you can actually afford if you tried to buy them and of course with regular game time they are likely to get better as the season goes on.
    I hope I have given you a few things that might help you in your next LLM save and help you achieve your goals. If you have any tips of your own why not comment below.
    Cheers guys

    Season One Striker Reveal
    Good evening peasants of the Vibe universe! 
    The time has come for us to finally reveal which striker we will be using in our opening season at Stamford Bridge. We’ve had numerous guesses from the community including this years wonderkids Fabio Silva, Pietro Pellegri and Fiete Arp. Old timers Edinson Cavani and Sergio Aguero were also blurted out, along with superstar striker Harry Kane! Well I can safely reveal that you were all wrong! That’s right Vibe, you suck! The player that @PriZe has “kindly” chosen as our first season gladiator is non other than....*drumroll*.....

    Boom! 🔥🔥🔥 Neymar is coming to the Bridge! That’s right Vibe you heard correctly, @PriZe has lost his fu**ing mind by blowing our entire first season budget on an actor. £225m this guy cost. Minimum! It took a bit of budget adjustment from both of us for him to sign but sign he did.
    So peasants, how do you think us immortal gods of the Vibe universe will get on in our first season at the Bridge? How will Leonardo Di Fallalot fare under our leadership? Get your “terrible” guesses submitted!
     
    Nuke Out!

    Ps: Remember your defeat in the Vibe shield @Nucleus? 
    Judgement day boys
    The H2H is straight forward, we need to keep the two contender’s mental capability in mind…
    Every season will see a new striker, which we will pick in turns. Each season is a mini H2H And who ever hits 1KC first wins the H2H Easy right? Great opportunity to try out old and new players and see who can get the most out of his player.

    So to keep it fun, we want a big bloody budget!  So that means Spain or the UK. Neither of us fancied to go to Spain as we both have a tender skin and get burned quickly so we put on our raincoats and decided to go to London.
    We had some options there, but due to Nucleus his balls being blue (ouch ) as result of the arrival of a baby girl so no more quality time with the missus I thought it would be fitting to go for Chelsea.

    I just hope that I will be more successful than Ruud Gullit there because Dutchies and Chelsea haven’t been a good combo if you ask me. So Sarri get your Sarri ass out, Nuc and PriZe are taking over!
    The Rules
    No hoarding strikers! Leagues load: England, Spain, Italy, Germany Own formations only. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Board of support
    Yep that’s right! It’s time to speak up and show some support and see if you have it in you to pick a winner. All I can say, check out the last three years of the Vibe competitions and you will know who to pick

    The 80’s Everton Challenge
    Credit to @danovic78 for this challenge
    Just a week before the club faced a tricky FA Cup third round tie at Stoke City, just 13,659 fans turned up to watch an abysmal 0-0 draw against Coventry at Goodison Park, with protest leaflets handed out by fans spelling out their feelings towards the chairman and manager: “Kendall and Carter must go. 26,000 stay-away fans can’t be wrong.” Everton were 16th in the league and apparently going nowhere. Defeat at Stoke or Oxford in the forthcoming FA Cup and Milk Cup ties did not bear thinking about for Kendall. Goals from Andy Gray and Alan Irvine secured a 2-0 against Stoke and started the rags to ribbons story for Kendall and his team, as the road to Wembley began.

    From when Kendall took over in May 1981 till the time he left June 1987 he has transformed the team into the most successful side in the clubs history but can you repeat it?

    Challenge Rules
    Load up England and any other countries and take charge of Everton. You have six seasons in which to replicate the trophies won in the Kendall period. You must win 2 League Titles, 1 FA Cup, 3 Charity Shields and 1 European Trophy. Also you must sign an English striker and he must score 30 league goals in one season (Think Gary Lineker 85-86) Own formations only. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! LEADERBOARD

    Season 3
    Season 2 was good despite injuries so lets hope season 3 can be just as good but injury free. The target was 80 goals based on his performance last year. This was also the season I realised I cannot manage Norway...... bugger.
    Transfers
    There were no outs this year I believe.
    IN

    Neuhaus was brought in as he looks like he can be decent as both box to box mid and advanced playmaker. Khammas looks to be my left wing-back for the forseeable as long as he improves as expected. Jensen Karamoh and Allen are all good frees and I took a punt on Edwards too.
    League
    The last two years we demolished the league, this season should be no different.

    Again we couldnt go undefeated but 97 points is phenomenal. Add to that 105 goals and we are singing.
    Cup
    We made the cup final again but could we win it?

    We smashed it. But guys, what is with stutter after Håland's name on goal 3? A glitch?
    Continental
    We played in the club world cup thanks to last years Barca ruining.

    We won handily.
    We got to the champions league final again this year, with the opposition being PSG.

    A win on penalties but I will take that after looking at the PSG squad. They spent and spent and spent.
    Håland's Haul in Holland
    First off, lets see how our young Nord has improved over the season.

    An increase of 1 in stamina. I will take it. Did it help him run longer and score more?

    It must have because he only went and smashed the bloody 100 barrier! 1 short of two goals a game too. His tally of 10 goals in 2 games at the CWC probably helped
    What a season number 3 was!  The target next year has to be another century.
    Games - 143
    Goals - 240

    FMM 19: from A to Z - Transfers and finding the right players
    In the player roles and attributes you can find the necessary attributes per role. The description below covers my own preferences.
    Tip: For the primary attributes try and find players who are in the range of 15+ (greens) or that you think can grow to that level overtime with the right training. Secondary is 10 minimum.
    Defence
    I use 3 roles depending on who i can get and if my team is able to really dominate the opposition. The roles i will discuss are:
    Central defender Ball playing defender Wing Back These are the only roles i use with the occasional Full back
    Central defender
    The cornerstone of many tactics on Vibe are the Central defenders. They are dependable players who know their primary role is to defend but do try a nice pass every know and then. Focus should be on players that can defend like there is nothing in life besides that, and have a decent pass. Technique is also something you want to keep in check. Think de ligt, Hummels, Jones.
    Ball playing defender
    Now these are the lads i love. Great at defending but have a hell of a pass in their foot as well. Think Boateng or for the oldies Frank de Boer, Ronald Koeman.
    When you start playing with BPD's, switch your central defenders to this role one at a time. They have a tendency to go up pitch and you don't want to be exposed at the back. Think boateng, Ramos, Pique, Tah.
    Wingbacks
    As i like to play strikers with good aerial stats the wingback's are crucial in pumping in the crosses for me. In FMM 18 these lads can be a bit gung-ho so keep that in mind. Pace, crossing and offcourse tackling is what you are looking for.
    Think Hernandez, Dani Alves
    Tip: The new Full backs are very good as well, and to me replace the old Wing backs. A solid option if you want to have those crosses but are scared for leaking goals
    Midfield
    Wingers
    this is easy, you want them to be fast, good dribbeling, decent shooting, but most important, great crossing stats. What i also like to do is play the wingers in a position on the pitch so that their preffered foot is on the outside. 
    For example i would play Neymar on the right instead of on the left. 
    Why? because i want him to use his strongest leg to pump in those crosses and not make goals
    Advanced playmaker, DLP and B2B
    To be honest, for the Advanced playmaker, the DLP, and Box-to-BoX i pick the same players. I want playmakers that are strong and can tackle. Imho i think this makes your team more solid. I make exceptions for the apm in the apm role if he is amazing in attacking sens, but 9 out of 10 time i stick to the above.
    So who are we talking about then? 
    The kovacic, Kroos and Pogba's of the world are the lads i would use. 
    For APM's on the wing i would go for a Bernardo silva type player. 
    Finding the right striker
    There are several things i find important.
    Pace Strength Stamina Now these aren't an issue if you are looking at 22 year olds, but i like to play young Strikers and i want my striker to play as much games as possible at a young age. Therefore it you go young, try to get the above as near as grean as possible. 
    The second set i look at are
    Aerial Dribbling Shooting Technique For young striker they for me are Secondary. 
    One thing i can’t stress enough how important i think Aerial is. On the EME you will get loads of corners, and how i like to play (wingers) you need someone that can finish a cross. With great aerial and shooting stats you have a guy with two lethal weapons.
    Finding the next Messi?
    When looking for future players i use the same attributes as in explained in this guide, however i expand the search rate by lowering the stats. Reason for this is that you want to find young players with good base stats.
    From there i will look at the candidates, see how they have performed at their clubs, and if they look promising, i will scout them (get a good youth scout). 
    Based on the scout report i either sign them or move on. Be aware, not all scout reports are correct. You can scout the 16 year old regen of Messi and they might say he will never grow to a player you can use. So use your gut as well!

    FMM 19: from A to Z - Picking your club
    Picking your club can be one of the easiest things to do in FMM 19 or one of the hardest, all depending on what the idea is behind your save.
    Choose the leagues wisely

    Before we pick our club, you have the opportunity to select multiple leagues to load.  Now multiple leagues looks like fun, but in previous editions of FMM this would impact the amount of players loaded an could impact squad depth. However, with the release of FMM18 you can now run a game with 21300 players in the database. Selecting multiple leagues is an interesting opportunity to keep your save interesting as you will have more options to move between leagues!
    Tip: Don't forget to take a look at which league has the earliest start date. This can give you some extra time in the transfer window
    So In for the long run? You might want to add some leagues so you can move to a new league and club to keep the save exciting.
    Tip: Do keep in mind that the more leagues you load the slower your game can be depending on the device you use.
    Trying to achieve a goal challenge? Then keep in mind that some leagues are easier to score in or have more games! And it also might be a good idea to add an easier league to move to when your player is aging and is having trouble to score.
    Tip: Ambition to become an ITN manager? Then choose your managers country wisely. Top countries favour managers with corresponding nationality. And trust me I learned it the hard way in a challenge...
    Choosing your club

    Your club of choice can be anything, FMM caters to your needs! Want to buy the next Galacticos? Go for the big clubs and the big bucks. Want to start at the bottom? Then check out the lower leagues and guide them to world domination. You can have it either way
    When selecting a club you can see how their facilities are and if they have a decent transfer budget. What it won't tell you is something about the second team or youth team if you will.
    So why might this be important? Well if you are like me, I like to have an active second team. And with active i mean that they play in a division. This will help you to get game time for your youngsters. Countries like Spain and The Netherlands will have actual leagues for their second teams. Where as the English clubs won’t help you out in that department.
    That’s all for picking your club!

    FMM 19: from A to Z - Youth management
    Youngsters... bags full of potential but how do you include them in to your squad when your starting eleven is stellar? It's a managers nightmare, because you want to keep the flow of the team, but your future gem also needs game time to develop. Especially with this years new training it's important to focus on their development when young. 
    So you've signed or promoted a 17 - 20 year old, now what?
    Game time is everything, without the right amount of game time they won't improve. With the really young kids you typically want to loan them out. 
    From 16-18 i don't mind where they go, as long as they will play. After that i want him to play at least 2nd or 1st division. 
    Tip: When you get a offer to loan your player, always check if they have a full fixture roster. Some clubs only participate in cups thus limiting the potential game time.
    Tip: Currently it's possible to super charge your training. Want to increase for instance aerial as quickly as possible? Select Aerial and a focus role that has the same attribute as a core focus.

    Knocking on the door
    Your new Messi or Ramos has improved, but still not ready for the big team and a shame to loan out. 
    At this time i start to included them in my B squad.  This keeps everyone happy and this will help your youngsters flow in to the teams. Always keep a good mix between promising youngsters and experienced guys in your B team or pay the price result wise
