  1. Good Evening All, CHOOSING THE CAREER I have chosen this career due to the current position of Bolton Wanderers FC.They have fallen from Premier League regulars to not winning a single game in League one so far in 2019. I wanted to manage the club and try and peice together their fall, as well as see if I could change there fortunes. STADIUM AND FACILITIES As you can see below, Bolton's Facilities are both "great" and "impressive". A lot of clubs would be envious of Bolton Wanderers facilities. The stadium also holds over 28000 which is a lot of support for a league one side. HOLIDAY & ASSISTANT MANAGER As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: STAFF,FINANCE AND TRAINING One of my first actions as Manager was improve the staff team, which was lacking bodies & quality(Mostly Basic qualified Staff). Then, finance was my num.1 priority knowing the situation of the club in real life and the board provided me roughly 3m in Transfers - I made sure we did not fall into the red.With Training, I delegate to my Assistant Manager like Sir Alex Ferguson used too.👍 TACTIC The tactic I used for Bolton was the famous Leicester City 2015 tactic. The tactic was inconsistent and sometimes leaky in defence. This being said, it was amazing when it worked with a fully fit squad & we went on prolonged runs without losing(16 matches) and scored many goals. SQUAD As you can see below, Bolton Wanderers had a very big squad as well as lacking quality all over the squad. I got rid of a lot of players either via free or loan but often for good money which helped secure the clubs finances (millions) , Something I would suggest they do in Real life. I did not buy many players but the ones I brought in had quality & were very experienced at this level. THE RESULTS As you can see, The season was very successful & we both won League One as well as got to the Checkatrade trophy final. Just from this save - I would put there current torrid history down to very poor management, too many players & bad recruitment. I desperatly hope we dont see this club slide down the leagues as we have seen to others! MANAGER STATS LEAGUE STATS
  2. Many thanks @Lord Danish, Very kind words. I have tested this tactic out more and appears it really needs a squad that fits the system and is not a one tactic fits all system. I have tried various adjustments but my tactic stays true to the REAL Leicester City 2015 system and works wonders with the right squad. Ta, Stuart

    Good Evening All, I recieved a challenge on my previous post to create the Leicester City Title Winning tactic. Leicester City pulled off "one of the greatest sporting stories of all time" by winning the title, a 5000-1 bet before the 2015 season. This counter attacking tactic meant that Leicester were the best team in the league defensively but also a powerful force in attack. The images below show the set up of the 2015 Leicester City squad. The squad set-up was the following: GK=SCHMEICHEL FB=FUCHS FB=SIMPSON NCB=HUTH NCB=MORGAN DW=ALBRIGHTON BWN=KANTE AP=DRINKWATER IF=MAHREZ AP=OKAZAKI P=VARDY Below I have listed my results so far with it:

    Good Evening All, I have created my own version of the Manchester United 2008 tactic. The squad was world class and the season was successful, winning the double of the Premier League title and the Champions League. The tactic was at the forefront of our success and confused the opposition, creating many goals and chances aswell as being strong in defence. The images below show the set up of the 2008 Manchester United squad. The squad set-up was the following: GK-Van Der Sar FB-Evra FB-Brown CB-Vidic CB-Ferdinand BBM-Scholes DLP-Carrick W-Giggs IF-Ronaldo CF-Tevez CF-Rooney Disclaimer: This tactic is currently untested over the course of a season.

  7. Many Thanks Rob! Very kind words from you! Many thanks Sam, I acknowledge that Brazil FC proly is not the right term to use. I also take on board the video speed. Its tricky, I make it a tad quicker as I am unsure how many people would watch a 10-20min video. You can slow the speed on youtube but it is not the same. Thank you so much for your feedback though
  8. Good Afternoon All, I have been working on a challenge on FMM19 for quite a while now. I have tested many tactics and styles of play to get this challenge completed. It is, of course, winning the World Cup. The challenge was so difficult that I found myself being different nations, Belgium, Spain,France etc. I was actually the manager of Belgium a few seperate times and got close to cups with Semi Finals and Finals but could never cross the line. Finally I landed the Brazil FC manager job and was determined to win this time. So, How did we do it? 1.Tactic I wanted a tactic which would work for all teams. The tactic needed to follow a Tiki Taka style, have width and depth as well as being strong defensively and attackingly.I chose the 3-4-3. (Please see the set up below) 2.Tournament The tournament was actually very difficult - Croatia and Senegal may appear easy in the group stage but you still need to beat them.China, England & Holland followed but of course, the biggest match we played was against our fiercest enemy - Argentina. All of the knockout games were excruciatingly tough and it was a huge achievement just making the Final. 3.The Final The final was against a very good Portugal side of which we were very narrow favourites. This game was also very difficult and went to extra time. After a hard thought match, we finally won the match 4-2(Please watch the match below). fm_tactic4.tac
  9. Good Evening All, After a successful year at Stamford Bridge, it appears that Sarri is on his way back to Italy to manage Juventus. This being said, talk is rife about Frank Lampard making a return. Lampard is a legend at Chelsea FC and led me to think about what his season back may look like... I started a new career with Game Editor turned on. I then started unemployed and amended to Frank Lampard to the new manager of Chelsea FC. I then went on holiday for months to capture a screenshot of the AI's prediction of his spell in charge. Transfers As seen below, Frank bought 4x new players to Chelsea spending pover £150million. One of the key signings was Boateng who despite his age is a quality player and good addition. On the flip side, Cahill was sold off to Everton. Results The results for Frank Lampard in his first season were highly inconsistent. He started brightly and had excellent spells including being top of the premier league after 7 matches. Sadly, the inconsistency & poor end of the season cost them dearly finishing a meager 7th in the league. Club Stats So, Chelsea finished 7th in the Premier League. To emphasis Chelsea's form, they won 5 games in a row including 11 without defeat. However, they also went 7 matches without a win! Conclusion It has been a fun experiment to install Frank as manager of Chelsea FC and see what may happen. I guess like at Derby, Frank appears to show a lot of promise at Chelsea with good spells during the season and exciting transfers. This being said, the results indicate a lack of experience at a bigger club, the season finish was poor and sadly he ended the season with his job security being 'insecure'.
  10. 30 SEASONS - THEATRE OF DREAMS The Club The club has improved under my management. The stadium has been vastly expanded,The staff are all trained to the highest standard and results have led to our reputation being 5 stars. All of these confirm that my approach to football management works and is successful. Here are just some of the stats from this 30 season successful period: Highest avg rating in season - D.Crespo 8.13 Most player of match awards per season- M.Salah 16 Youngest player - H.Tyson 17 Highest transfer fee paid - G.Deslandes £194 Biggest Win - 7-0 Club Brugge Most consecutive wins -19 Most games without defeat -40 As stated above, the results and success have been unparalleled and utterly World Class. Alex Ferguson won 13 Premier Leagues and left the game a legend, whereas we have won 24 Premier League titles - 15x consecutively. The Manchester United fans have seen an era of dominance both domestically & Globally of the likes that will never be seen in football history again. The Manager My management of Manchester United FC has been close-to perfection. My 74% win rate over 30 years shows how impressive the reign has been, with Pep Guardiola currently sitting on a 76% win rate. As stated below, the Board and Supporters feel I have been a 'Legendary' manager. Conclusion I took on this 30 year save because of my love for Manchester United FC. I have loved every second of it & will look back fondly on this save. It struck me how dedicated I became to it and how even regens now live long in the memory such as Javier Sosa, Deslandes, Crespo etc. I actually really loved this save and felt I did my club proud. I guess in regards to the game itself I should bring up some points The game froze once or twice at the end of a few matches when going to continue The game could be harder and maybe the conditioning update could have been one way of doing this - I won 15x titles in a row!😲 Hall of fame is genuinely baffling as my 30 seasons should have warranted me being top of the list. Despite wining 5x titles on some occasions, my budget the next season was still 100m.
  11. Thank you both so much for your very kind words. Reaching the milestone of managing the same amount of matches as Sir Alex with Manchester United was a very happy moment. The fact that I matched and bettered his results made the moment even more special. The comment about the goals for is a good point and information I had noticed as well. What I would say is my Tiki Taka system is very reliable defensively but is not always as reliable attacking wise. I think this is down to the team as despite having a great front three, IF the midfielders/defenders are weaker, the strikers will not get the service they need to score goals.👍
  12. Good Evening All, I am writing tonight because I have hit another key milestone in this save and more great achievements. I have reached 1,500 matches managing Manchester United FC. Manchester United's greatest ever manager Alex Ferguson retired after managing the club for 1,500 matches. I would like to compare our reigns. Tactic: I have been using my traditional TIKI TAKA tactic for this save. The only amendment has been changing the tempo to slow which has helped. The tactic has worked extremely well allowing us to control matches and midfield in most matches. Win Rates Alex Ferguson managed 1,500 matches, winning 895 of those, giving him a win rate of 59.7%.He drew 338 matches and only lost 267. He won more half the games he managed at Manchester United which is a great achievement considering the tough task he first walked into & any club would take those stats. In my reign. I have managed 1,500 matches, winning 1,107 of those, giving me a win rate of 73.80%. I drew 253 of those and have only lost 140 games. My win rate is better and to put this in perspective, Mourinho has a win rate of 64% and Pep Guardiola has a win rate of 76%. All-time best XI Manager's Trophy Cabinets Alex Ferguson won 38 trophies over 26years at united. I have won 78 trophies so far. This is a 40 trophy difference which emphasises the impressive management of myself, however, again both successes are unbelievable and would likely never be surpassed. Manchester United Season History Below shows my progress over 23 years at United. My greatest achievement may be 3x Invincible seasons in 37/38,35/36 & 31/32. In addition to this, a lot has been said about Manchester City winning 2x titles in a row as it is hard to motivate players all the time and have that winning mentality, as well as world class players. This being said, I am currently on an 11x title streak and have dominated English domestic football. The Club- Manchester United FC The club has state of the art training facilities & youth facilities. This is something I inherited and any manager taking charge at united is equipped with the best tools for the job. The facilities enable new and current players to develop and grow quicker and better. Old Trafford, the Theatre of dreams currently holds a capacity of over 74,000 which on the game has been expanded to 126,000! The outstanding run the club has had to date in both domestic & world football has lead to an increase in the average attendance. The demand does not fit the supply currently but with good results, my hope is it could. Alex Ferguson's biggest win was 9-0 against Ipswich. My biggest win was7-0 against Club Brugge. This is something he beats me on. In contrast, Alex's biggest defeat was a 6-1 thrashing to the neighbours Manchester City. Our biggest defeat was a 4-0 drubbing to Tottenham Hotspur. Do not think either of us is a winner there. Youth is very important at Man Utd and the treble winning side were built on the class of 92' players. United's youngest player under Sir Alex was Ryan giggs at 17yrs and 3 months. Our youngest player used was T gagen at 18yrs old. Finally, Transfers are fundamentally important to maintain standards and better the side you have. Sir Alex's biggest spend was on Dimitar Berbatov for £30.75. Our biggest spend was a whooping £194 on Gilles Deslandes who was an inside forward who is now more of a trequartista figure, His stats are shown below and he is a truly outstanding player. really hope you have enjoyed this post!!!!!!!
