  1. Compared to the full version of FM , looking at opposition tactics isn't as important on FMM as such I agree , as long as you find something that works it will often work against any tactic 80 percent of the time I normally just look at opposition players , if they've got fast wingers for example I will make sure I have cover on the wings and don't press as high , if they have a slow striker I could press higher or a fast striker I'd sit deeper etc
  2. Fantastic work @Ian Been an interesting read over the last couple weeks mate Well done on smashing this challenge, some very low attributes he has now but you managed to stick with it and reap the rewards I'm quite curious , do you watch commentary only during games or watch as much of the match as you can? Be interesting your next article to see the tactics and your thoughts process over which attributes you feel are best and be a good insight into how you manage squads to get the best out of them Look forward to it!
  3. I forgot about @Ian and him managing Sunderland I remember him talking about it last week or so , still need to give it a read And a Brentford challenge does sound good do you have a link to his challenge? @Mr Tree
  4. I'm only about Two or so years late but started the Sunderland Netflix Documentary recently and even though I am a Newcastle Fan , having worked at the Stadium of Light for two years , two seasons they were both relegated , it's a very good documentary which is really insightful It's got me thinking , how good of a save Sunderland would be on FMM20 , highly doubt I'd ever take the challenge on myself for obvious reasons but for FMM players it's probably a good challenge , big stadium and fan base , some good players in that squad for League One Level and a big rebuild job for anyone who took it upon them to get them back to the Premier League Just wondered has anyone managed Sunderland on FM? If so how did they get on?
  5. Thanks for starting the challenge @Cockers2505 hopefully you do well! Looks an excellent start you've made so far
  6. END OF SEASON THREE We were second at the half way stage and had aims of back to back promotions Santiago Chacón a player I have been after for a year eventually signed for us in January , a steady player with great attributes to help our push for promotion The wheels came firmly off the bus going on a disaster of a run up until end of February which saw us drop right down to 10th place However we drastically improved throughout the season going on a winning streak of the last 6 games to land us 4th in the table We beat Forest Green 2-0 before losing 4-3 leading us to the Play Off final with a 5-4 aggregate victory in the play off semi final We arrived at Wembley suited and booted , 2-1 down in the last 10 minutes until we equalised to make it 2-2 to send us Into extra time We choked under pressure and missed out on back to back promotions letting two goals slip past us in added time leaving our players on the turf in tears Quigley probably motivated by last season's heroics and his new contract this season was the top goalscorer yet again even with this time being in a higher division Quigley was also runner up in the League Two player of the Year standings with our very owner Kastaneer pipping him to the top spot Unfortunate as it was to only just miss out on the back to back promotions , I did win the manager of the year award which is very much a success We will learn from this and push forward aiming for the title next season! Thanks for reading and comments are welcome 😀 added 0 minutes later @Ian Literally just posted the season update as you posted that , no promotion sadly but I'd say it was a successful season in my opinion 😀
  7. Halfway through Season Three The lads last season had a miraculous season securing promotion to League Two and our target for this season from the board was to battle bravely against relegation so I told them I'd do just that but deep down with my transfer skills I thought we could definitely make a sneaky push into the play offs Transfers We had a bit of a squad overhaul , Eyoma is a solid defender who I used with Dagenham when I got them into the Premier League before and Kastaneer is a striker who I also used in my Dagenham save A few young prospects who were released by clubs last season were also signed Sunderland were promoted to the Championship and I have signed 4 of their players to the club with buy out clauses inserted too , the star of which has been Elliot Embleton His attributes are good and at age of 22 if we can train up his shooting and tackling attributes he will definitely be capable of making the upgrade to League one whenever we are promoted , tried to buy out the loan already but we are only able to offer 2k in wages and he wants around 4k sadly Jack Rodwell signed as a free agent to bring some experience into the squad The final signing I want to tell you about is Sunday Adeloye a Dutch Under 21 goalkeeper who already at the age of 18 has become our starting goalkeeper Lewis Hardcastle got too big for his boots and was hounding for a move , so we sold him , odly he wanted to go to a club with better training facilities and a higher league yet rejected some good offers to sign for Aldershot , we also sold another few players and released those who wouldn't make the step up to fund funds for transfers and wages for the rebuild Tactics We are using an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation and pressing high up the pitch using two Box to Box midfielders to link the transition between defence and attack , we are the top scorers of the division after 23 games Table So at the halfway point we are sat in 2nd place and up there challenging for the title , we would have been 1st for this update if in the final game before posting this we had not unfortunately lost 2-1 to Oldham We are banging the goals in but our defence is very leaky and if anyone has any ideas how to shore up a defence while still being prolific up top please let me know! Job Offers I'm currently a wanted manager at the moment with both Mansfield and Rochdale enquiring about my services but they were swiftly rejected as I march on upwards at the top of the table! Hopefully I will be able to update you all on the ending of the season tonight with a title in the trophy cabinet , failing that at least a nice promotion at the first time of asking to League One!
  8. Anyone know how I can get the condition percentage to be colour coded again? It used to be good fitness green , average orange poor red but it's now all went to shite percentages and it's not as easy to differentiate now when choosing squads Sorry if this is stupid question and a easy fix
  9. Knew you'd be straight on this challenge @Ian haha! Alright first attempt which will be boosted if Bruyne gets back to fitness for a couple games I'm sure you will smash whatever this attempts score is whenever you try it next
  10. Haha thank you! Thanks Mate So far so good and he seems excellent I reckon by 30 his attributes will decline but for a starting striker he is good! It's going to be good but with only being allowed England loaded going to be hard as if I could of had France Germany and Holland lower divisions loaded too I could have poached some great talent on bosmans It's a good start and need to keep it up , as I said to scratch would of been better if I could have had other countries loaded so I could poach quality foreign youth gems on pre contracts every Jan but I'm sure I will do fine Thanks Ian , hoping to get back to back promotions but might be too much to ask
  11. Yeah that's fine mate , £16m is what you can spend too
  12. SEASON TWO UPDATE After becoming Barrow manager last season and leading them to a comfortable 10th place finish the aim for this season was to progress and land a spot in the play offs We brought many players into the squad on free and loan as we had a lack of funds to spend on transfers One signing that came in was De La Torre a creative American who was our main provider with 11 assists this season And our star player was already at the club Quigley and he scored 46 goals in 44 games and was the league's top goal scorer We reached the FA Trophy Semi Final , beat League One Accrington Stanley to reach the second round of the FA Cup where we were humbled 7-1 by League One Luton Town BUT it's the league I am most excited to tell you about , we had a flying start to the season unbeaten in the first 13 games but the wheels did start to come off until I steadied the ship and this is how the final table looked We finished 4th in the league which is brilliant for our squad but the icing on the cake was beating Solihull Moors in the Play Off final to secure promotion to League Two As you can see in the final we were 2-0 playing poorly and looking at heart break but 3 goals in the last 25 minutes helped us reach the English Football League within 2 seasons! I so far have achieved my silver coaching badge and with the step up in League as well hope to attract a higher quality of player to help us stay up in a harder league The board are being very challenging however , several of our players are complaining about our training facilities but after two requests the board still will not improve them! Hope to have a season Three update in the next couple days where hopefully we will still be a League Two Club! Comments Welcome
  13. Full pre season and hopefully it goes well and we can have a push into the play offs at the end of the season We've made some good signings to get us ready for the push
  14. Xisco 😂😂😂 What a joker , £5m 9 games over 5 years and 1 goal Unfortunately yes I do remember him ha ha! Good luck with the challenge @smoggy90
  15. Wheel Barrow it to SUPERSTARDOM I've decided to do a long term challenge , probably going to last the full 30 years I reckon but we shall see , the challenge I've started is the ' It's a long way to the top challenge ' which I must load all leagues in England only start unemployed and try to earn super star reputation Call me Adams , Mr Adams , having started unemployed I'm off to hunt for my first club on the step to managerial greatness Having had to wait until the 1st of November eventually I was appointed the manager of my first ever club , Barrow in the National Conference meaning I can start my career surprisingly not in tier six of English football but in tier five Surprisingly Barrow were top of the table when I was appointed , an excellent first chance at quickly progressing up into the fourth tier of the English pyramid This is my managerial profile before I started the challenge and as you can see I was unemployed as a unknown reputation and had no coaching badges! I had 30 games til the end of the season and we finished 10th , the board were happy with the performance as they wanted mid table so it wasn't expected that the team would be able to stay at the top for long and the first season was all about consolidating the team Overall in the season we played 34 games including 4 cup games , winning 11 losing 15 while drawing 8 , I would class this as an acceptable start , one which we can only build on next season Comments Welcome 😀
  16. Brilliant got this under way! Surprised with who offered me the job tbh! Will do a write up later on after the first season 😀
  17. @Scratch After starting unknown with no coaching badges am I allowed to take coaching exams throughout the save?
  18. @Foxy During the save am I allowed to take coaching exams? Like start with unknown and no badges but if I can take an exam am I allowed to? I'm probably going to give this a go for my last long term save on FMM20
  19. Ermmm @Scratch hang on mate , you told me you were going to do the 1KC with Joelinton remember? 🤪
  20. @Scratch and @Ashez This is so true! Or where you win 4 in a row then lose 4 in a row then draw 4 in a row for example If you look at your results you will regularly see patterns of similar results in clusters throughout the season For example in a 38 game season you might find this WWWWWDDDDLLLWWWWDDDLLLLWWWWDDDDLLLWWDL Surely with it being just a game and not real life some sort of coding has to happen for certain results , maybe it's just coincidence but I don't know For example if the game was rigged if you played a game didn't save and played the game again and repeated this surely the score for the game would be the same every time BUT if you play a game and don't save and then play it again and repeat this USING EXACTLY THE SAME TACTIC , PLAYERS , INSTRUCTIONS etc the result is always different , sometimes you win and sometimes you lose , surely this shows that the game could potentially just be a random results generator?
  21. @Scratch Well Done mate and fantastic score A lot better than my attempt 😂 Champions League is a nice addition to the trophy cabinet
  22. Forget manager of the year, positive this man should be up for player of the year 🍩
  23. Honestly @Woody wouldn't bother me one bit if we went down , going to the games often feels a chore so the no fans allowed ain't really bothering is
