  1. Good news for us! Still amazed that there were only 2 points dropped between all 3 of you... just an idea - how about a little twist, no transfers allowed or something?
  2. Still can't get over that defence, talk about solid!
  3. Your defence looks solid there Shector and this has been a good one to follow. Are you still playing largely the same way you started or did you find any breakthroughs along the way?
  4. Forgive me Vibers for it has been a while since my last update... I tend to find that once I have got something working my attention goes a little and so I have been messing around with some other saves. Anyway, I have got to the end of the season and despite the obligatory wobble: I'm quite pleased with how this worked. A few defeats but 35 wins is very nice. My OCD was appeased by more than 2 GPG scored and less than 1 GPG conceded too! Again this season, there were few stand out performers. I liked getting 20 goals from my free transfer striker: And then after a lengthy exclusion, Savarino came back in and had something like 27 goal involvements: Last screengrab... don't know how much this contributes but we managed to get some pretty decent chemistry in the team too: Thanks for taking a look! Lets see what kind of a budget I have for the Premier League.
  5. Hello again, so despite my frustrations at the end of last season I didn't bin this off! My summer transfer window was mostly spent collecting some prospects (on low wages and no fees) for the squad as it seemed I would need to spend big to make an impact on the team. My one extravagance was on this guy, lets see if he comes good over time. Seeing as I expect to be here for some time yet, one of the academy prospects may be worth a mention. This guy was a gold shiny, his kicking isn't much cop but we'll train him up on that. I couldn't resist the temptation to tinker with my tactic in the first half of the season. I decided that my goal return from the strikers wasn't good enough so I switched from a P-TM combo to AF-PF. Results were decent but I didn't think I was scoring enough as a team. After a mini wobble I decided to tinker again, pushing my IWBs forward and reverting the PF to a TM... If you're struggling to follow it now looks like this: I'm at the half way stage and I've just had my best run of wins so I'll stick to this for now. One more thing I thought I'd share, young Kian Harratt is starting to feature more regularly now and his stats are looking alright. He was a star for me in FMM20 but I wasn't so enamoured with his 2 star potential and initial stats this time around but he seems to be maturing nicely. January window still ahead and some funds left over... lets see how this goes. Thanks for taking a look
  6. I really like the look of this Mr Tree, thanks for sharing, the results are very impressive. On one of mine I have the IWB in the back line... did you try that before settling on this shape?
  7. Good luck Aaron, Athengers was a quality read and I'm looking forward to seeing this one too.
  8. Well, this didn't go to plan! I still had some hopes of automatic promotion but then had what I would best describe as a 1990s England batting collapse... Fear not, I thought, there is always the playoffs. The first leg didn't go to plan though, losing 2-0 at home to Birmingham... Fear not, I thought, there is always the second leg and at 2-0 up going towards injury time, like a pigeon flying overhead - splat! Got to love this game sometimes! So another season in the Championship, lets see what I can do with this squad... I think I'll keep the tactic fairly similar unless anyone has any top tips for player roles! No real stand out performers good or bad this season:
  9. Thank you Fox. Okay, so bringing you up to date... The patchy results continued, we were dominating some games and having a few close ones which went both ways. I was starting to second guess my tactic and just about managed to resist the temptation to tinker before we went on a 4 match winning streak. This put me in striking distance of 2nd place Bournemouth who we met in our next game: Bobbins! Which leaves the table looking like this: There is still time for another run but it could be the playoffs for us. My star player Savarino might be running out of gas, his average rating is dropping quite alarmingly now.
  10. Hi, I'm new to posting here but I've been lurking to get inspiration for my tactics for a few months now. My first introduction to this series was CM94 on the Amiga (some of you may be wondering what that means 🤣) and then I lost far too many hours than I care to admit on CM0102 and CM0304. We had a Google Play voucher going unused about a year ago, so I got FMM20 and then with all this strangeness in the world found that manager games were a good distraction! I used to have a season ticket after I stopped 11 a side and was still trying to play 5 a side (injuries and age permitting) until about a year ago and I'll hopefully get back to 5 a side sometime in 2021 but we will see!
  11. So the first game didn't go exactly to plan: But perhaps the balance of play suggests some promise, lo and behold a couple of games later I was pleased to get this: The new boy doing good! Early results were a bit hit and miss and we struggled for consistency but we did go into the new year in touch at the top of the table:
  12. Hi folks, first time write up of a career here, I've enjoyed reading some of your exploits and thought I would join in. Please do comment if there is more or less that you would like to see. I'm not going to claim tactical genius or tremendous insight but hopefully it'll be worth a follow! So I'm taking on a challenge that I made up but its to try and repeat the 1920s and 1930s achievements of Huddersfield Town and Arsenal by winning the league three times in a row. Something that Town fans love to remind ourselves of! Might not be the toughest assignment but seeing as I got sacked on my first attempt whilst messing about with tactics after getting to the playoff final twice, I thought that maybe it was! Anyway, enough preamble. The club I've mentioned, the tactic I've got to start with is a vertical-gegen-taka or something: In terms of players, I've gone cautious in terms of changing the squad around with just a few additions. I tried to go for Kaio Jorge but couldn't get a work permit but I did find this guy: I try to go for U23 players, thinking that they'll develop or be sellable later. I have a few in my squad that I'll be keeping an eye on. I managed to win the league on FMM20 with the like of Josh Koroma, Kian Harratt, Lewis O'Brien, Harry Toffolo, Dumeaco Duhaney, Luke Daley, Scott High and Ryan Schofield in my squad. Who are they? Exactly! I took some screenshots but I'll save them for later if they work out! I've done about half a season so far and will upload more soon. Thanks for taking a look.
  13. Hi folks, not sure how this works being a bit new... but I had an idea for a challenge that I'll take on myself eventually, quite slowly and probably badly too. I thought I'd share in case anyone else thought it was worth a go. So, the task is to emulate the feats of Herbert Chapman and the three times in a row league winners of Huddersfield Town and Arsenal in the 1920s and 1930s (a bit of trivia for you, I think Chapman only won 2 in a row with both clubs due to leaving Town and then his untimely passing but we'll ignore that for now). My take is this, take charge of Huddersfield Town (but maybe another Championship club if you have an aversion!), take them to the Premier, win the league 3 times in a row, then take charge of Arsenal (or perhaps another Premier League club if you have another aversion!!) and win the league three times in a row again. To add the challenge element, the goal is to do this in the shortest time and then as a tie breaker by spending the least money. Any thoughts? P.S. I might have used my first save as a trial for this but I got sacked by Huddersfield for losing in the playoff final in the first two seasons... not that I'm bitter!
