  1. I totally agree with your article. I actually find myself enjoying the tweaks in the winter update. For me, the game makes me happy. The realism, the organising & seeing the results of your decisions.
  2. So I have decided to not write up every season but my 2nd season was significant for a number of reasons. The 2nd season was extremely successful with Manchester United FC wining the treble for only the 2nd time in history. As seen below, we won back-to-back Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. This is on top of the FA Community Shield. This on a par with Sir Alex Ferguson's achievements, stamps the clubs place in the world and my Philosophy as a manager. As you can see below, We have built a very strong squad. Our 2x key signings this season were Bernardo at left wing back & De Bruyne at Central Midfield. How does this squad compare to the one of 99? As a fan, I would always rate the chemistry & hard work of the 99 players but this is an impressive team. Finally, The success of Manchester United won me World Coach of the year. This is a rare honour and believe my 1st currently on FMM19. This achievement confirms my Philosophy(Seen below) works and is a moving personal award for my management style.
  3. Choosing the career I have decided to do a 30 year career with my club - Manchester United. This year, there was a real dip with Mourinho with negative comments,tactics and results. I want to bring back the positivity to Old Trafford and hopefully a lot of silverware. Stadium & Facilities The Stadium and Facilities for Manchester United are perfect. We have over a 75,600 seater stadium as well as the BEST youth & training facilities. My aim will be to help the youth players through whilst increasing our attendance to create even more of a fortress. Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances & Training All the staff members are Gold Badged & I amended the Assistant Manager to our Attacking Coach. We started with £159m and even after some big transfers, managed to keep this in the green. I delegate training sessions to my Assistant Manager Tony Whelan. Tactics I used my Tiki Taka tactic and it was very solid . The defence was solid with only 12 goals scored against us in the league. The attack was also very strong with 61 goals scored. Squad The original squad was brilliant and I believe would have met the brief of finishing in the top 4. This being said, I bought and sold a lot of players with the hope of taking this great club further. Among the casualties were Sanchez, Lingard and Fred who in my opinion were not as good as other players on the market. The results Good and bad - 1st year brought the premier league back to Old Trafford BUT with the squad we had, feel we could have won more. We were inconsistent in big matches such as the Caraboa Cup quarter final & more importantly, the Champions League Final against Tottenham. I think its important to keep perspective though and this was still a successful season which stamps Manchester United back as one of the best in the world. Manager Stats League Stats
  4. Good Evening All, Choosing the career So, a few years back, I carried out a successful 30 year season with Newtown AFC. I grew to really like the club for a number of reasons. I wanted to have a successful return and provide Newtown AFC with some silverware. Stadium & Facilities The stadium holds 3,372 people and amazingly, the average attendance is 3,372 people! The facilities are below average which is worrying but Welsh Football is still very small and the club is still classed as Semi Professional. Finally, look at the Stadium below, its beautiful! Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances & Training The Staff at the club were basic and required some appointment's adding to them. This included Landon Donovan who has been upgraded to a silver trained Assistant Manager. Finances have been kept in the green through selling players etc. Tactics I again used my Tiki Taka tactic for this save. The squad took to the tactic well but were leaky in defence which was severely aging. A lot of goals were scored either through set pieces or crosses. Squad As seen below, a lot of changes were made to this squad. The players were aging or were not good enough. Among the areas requiring improvement was CM,IF and WBK. The results The results were very positive winning 2x cups - The JD Welsh Premier League & the JD welsh Cup. The diagram below the 2 years have both shown massive improvement in reaching the top. I have loved returning to Newtown AFC and feel happy that I leave with silverware. Manager Stats League Stats
  5. Good Evening All, Choosing the career As all good managers do, I like different locations and challenges and Rimini FC was my next one. Rimini FC are a small Italian club with a lot of charm, Just look at that badge. Again, I wanted to test my football philosophy and Rimini FC was the team for me. Stadium & Facilities So to begin, Rimini FC has a really good stadium(in my eyes) with a lot of seats for fans. Problem one - way too many seats for the demand, roughly 10,000 seats with only 1,000 attendance. The facilities I have upgraded to be good. Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances & Training I always get my Assistant Manager to take training sessions. The staff members were okay but have been upgraded slightly with 1x Gold Trained Assistant Manager which is excellent. Finances are also in great shape as seen below. Tactics I always use my Tiki Taka Tactic and used it with Rimini FC. The squad adapted to the tactic very well. The only problem area was defence which despite having excellent GK,DEF and DMC, was still a bit leaky. Squad As you can see, quite a lot of changes were made in my 2nd season. A lot of these signings were players coming to Rimini FC, to improve and develop the squad. The players leaving were okay players but many were aging or not good enough. The results As you can see, it was a very successful season for the club. The Club won the league & the Supercoppa di legro pro. The philosophy is still working strong and I really enjoyed managing Rimini FC. I feel like in real life that with some good managment, this club could and should be doing much better and really challenging for honours. Manager Stats League Stats

    Ruthless attack 4-2-2-2 EME

    Impressive. Good going👍
  7. Version 1.0.1


    Good Evening All To start off with, why this tactic? Quite simply, the football Barcelona and Spain played with this philosophy were the most beautiful i have ever seen & are the reason i want to play football manager please see last years post below: This Tactic is still succeeding and winning.
  8. Good Evening All, Choosing the career Choosing this career was easy and one I always aim to do each season on FMM. I have family members in Edzell, near Montrose aswell as having watched them play whilst up north. The club holds a soft spot for me and I want to prove to myself the Philosophy still works. Stadium & FACILITIES The club holds relatively good Facilities and a modest stadium. Both 1st team & youth facilities are average, which I felt should be sufficient for the level were at. The Stadium only holds one stand as you can see but the thing I wanted to change was the fanbase, with the 4,936 seats only currently getting 2000 fans using them. Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances & Training Montrose had a shortage of staff so I topped it up with people who fitted my philosophy( all of them were bronze standard). I aimed to keep finances green as future development would also depend on a good budget & good players at this level can be found cheaply. Training is now handled by my Assistant Landon Donovan. Tactics Given the quality of this squad, trying to implement Tiki Taka was always going to be tough. The tactic had good and bad moments, the defence always seemed shaky whilst the attack seemed good although lacking at times. Overall, the season was shaky and a lot of that was down to our low quality side getting to grips with it. Squad As you can see, Montrose was transformed top to bottom. Almost every original player was not good enough for this level and was changed with players who held a 10 rating in the most important attributes for there position. The scale of the change can be seen below, it would naturally take a while for a team to be born from so many individual signings. The results The season was a tense one, filled with determination, perseverance & grit BUT also success & progression. Montrose FC won promotion to the Ladbrokes Championship along with making it to the Semi Finals of the IRN-BRU cup, a remarkable feat. In conclusion & in truth, the season was a poor one & I had to ask the board for extra time twice BUT below the deep tension, the club found significant progression and the buds of a brighter future were planted. My philosophy worked and gave me a lot of confidence to keep going.. Manager Stats League Stats
  9. I am very happy that this tactic is working well for you. I would love to see other examples of the community trying it. Enjoy 😊👍
  10. I am still using this process in FMM19 to great results if newbies needed some guidance 😁
  11. Enjoy a video I made of goals scored during my FC Shinnik Yaroslavl career:
  12. My Career at FC Shinnik Yaroslavl This evening I completed my 30 year season in Russia and as Manager of FC Shinnik Yaroslavl. The feeling is better sweet as on one hand I feel ive really lived & loved being their manager whilst also feeling they need a new manager with more ideas to progress it forwards further. This was the moment it ended. So, Here's the progress and stats from my career: Personal stats What a 30 year career at FC Shinnik Yaroslavl & the joint best career I have ever played on Football Manager Mobile 2018!! The career took over 1 week to complete, which is a long time playing, especially with one club. I managed FC Shinnik Yaroslavl to promotion from the Russian 1st division and then over 80 pieces of silverware, including an unbelievable 10x Champions League Titles cementing us amongst Europe's Elite clubs. The career saw me manage 1,484 matches - both for FC Shinnik & Internationally. From these, I won an incredible 1,022 matches or 68.87% of them. My goals ratio indicates my side normally scored 2 but often conceded as well which is disappointing. My success at FC Shinnik gained me World Class reputation and at a peak I was 2nd Best Manager in the Hall of Fame. Even the Career Review comments that I had an 'outstanding career' and was a 'successful football manager'. Below's picture shows the mansion in Yaroslavl where I retreated after my successful career. Clubs stats My chosen club FC Shinnik Yaroslavl also benefited from our relationship. As seen below, both training & youth facilities improved greatly with the stadium now holding 75,000 attendances. The first years was rocky and I found Russian football to be highly competitive which made progression tough. Our first breakthrough came as we managed to gain promotion. Our progression since that time has been constant inching our way towards the Russian League title and then stubbonly keeping it for 15 years. We suffered a huge set back the following year only managing a second finish in a transitional period older and young players. The club went on to win a further 7 Russian League titles to cement our place in history. You can find additional stats below: Conclusions It is difficult to know what to say about this career apart from this is the reason I love Football Manager. Russia is a country I know very little about football wise apart from the big clubs, international side and the world cup lol. FC shinnik was a club I had never heard of or thought I'd hear about. The club, originating from people from a tyre factory banding together to form a team immediately catched me when I started unemployed & they offered me the position. The colour of the kit, the intricate logo and the manner of their board on the game(very tough but also realistic and knowing the clubs place). I really have loved playing every second of this career from the Transfers, Developing their Facilities & Stadium as well as most importantly, winning trophies. It is a save that will live long in the memory and ill never forget. So..Прощай FC Shinnik Yaroslavl
  13. This helps show this years progress.
  14. Update- Greatest Season with FC Shinnik Yaroslavl This is a further update from my 1st career on FMM19 with FC Shinnik Yaroslavl. This as suggested was my Greatest Season managing this club.Sit back and Enjoy! Firstly, My personal journey managing FC Shinnik Yaroslavl has been very successful. I have a 62% win rate( Mourinho has a 65% win rate) & have won this small club 15 Honours, including 5 League wins and 10 Cup Wins. Finally, I have won the Russian Treble 3 years in a row and the Quadruple in the current year ive managed. I am ranked 7th Best Manager a World Class Reputation. The drawbacks, if any, would be Financial Control & Domestic Player Bias. So, Finances could be better managed with with Big Wages and high Transfer spend being easily used. To buy the best, I have had to look abroad as well which may upset local supporters who aren't seeing enough home grown players. Secondly, The below details help show the Clubs progression. The Stadium has now been developed to 75,000 capacity which is meeting demand.( Belows pic comes up on Google Nd believe there current stadium is being developed) We have Impressive training facilities but could be better still. The Infomation below shows our Clubs progression best but - 4x League titles in a row & 1x UEFA Champions League! Among my Best Achievements at the club is 13x Consecutive wins & Amongst my saddest moments was a 4x Consecutive losing streak which I asked the board to support me through. As seen above then, the once little club FC Shinnk Yaroslavl has won the UEFA Champions League! We went down early on but due to a red Card and excellent tactic changes( Overload, Fast and Expressive) we resulted victorious. The squad were excellent and the stats really show how well they did. Along with Jeonnam Dragons who I managed on FMM18 and now FC Shinnik Yaroslavl, I feel both these clubs are home now. I really like managing in Russia and the Club are great. @BatiGoal- You can see the stats above but the T is VERY consistent regularly getting at least 20 goals per year with the most so far being 32 Goals. Thank you so much for commenting and Enjoy!!
  15. Year 8 - FC Shinnik Yaroslavl Reach the Promised Land So, after 8 long years, FC Shinnik Yaroslavl have reached the promised land by being the top club in Russia. You can see the clubs progress below, The first 4 years saw decent development with me testing a successful Philosophy until we got promotion to the Premier League and I was confident it was found. The last 4 years, using my Successful Philosophy, has seen the club progress every single Season (Including a brand new 45,000 Seater Stadium) until the unbelievable happened. So, in the Year 2016, FC Shinnik Yaroslavl won the Russian premier league. This was achieved through purchasing Excellent youngish(24-28yr old) players whose contracts had expired in addition to keeping the squad strictly to 25 players ONLY! The season started incredibly well with solid win after win. This is always slowed down by the Winter period but picked up again at the end resulting in the Clubs 1st ever Russian Premier League Honour in its history. Just to add to the Success, FC Shinnik Yaroslavl beat Akhmat to win the Olympus Cup of Russia. The match really showed the progress this club has made at its best with Outstanding Tiki Taka play. I am loving this save and hopefully there are many more Cups to come... Annual Details
