  1. CHOOSING THE SQUAD I chose Jeonnam Dragons because I have managed them before & I love them. The club founded in 1994, have already won 3x times! Hoping I can try & win a fourth as well as gain promotion. STADIUM & FACILITIES On my first day, I asked the board to improve the stadium & facilities. The board declined this request but the club still offers 'good' youth & 1st team facilities. The Stadium holds a modest 13,000 supporters. STAFF, FINANCES & TRAINING The training regime was delegated to my assistant manager Hwang Dong-Jin. The finances are very secure. The staff room has been bolstered & in a few area's improved. SQUAD One of my more interesting and challenging saves because the transfer market started a few months into the season. I looked to strengthen every are of my team with a modified version of the 2012 attributes. Many players were not good enough for the squad & got sold or released. TACTICS I used my Attacking Tiki Taka Tactic for this career. To be honest, the tactic was more inconsistent than I thought it would be & we leaked many leads. Our attack was weak and most wins were by narrow margins. THE RESULT My 1st season with Jeonnam Dragons was fantastic, with us winning the Hana 1Q FA Cup & promotion to the 1st division! Really surprised by this as our results felt inconsistent & our attack was week. Our defence appears to be what won us these results & we had the best in the league.

  2. CHOOSING THE SQUAD I chose England for this challenge because there my country, they have an amazing squad & they have not won anything in a while. England won the 1966 World Cup but have since struggled to reach the final of a big competition. I would love to be the manager to bring football home again! TACTIC For Euro 2020, I used my Attacking Tiki Taka Tactic. The tactic has been successful this year & England have players who are perfectly suited for it. Our defence is strong enough to keep the goals out too. AIM FOR EURO 2020 Our aim for Euro 2020 as provided by the FA was to reach the Quarter Finals! This feels achievable & would like us to achieve more! GROUP STAGE So, Our group consisted of Croatia, Belgium & Serbia which is competitive. We ended up topping the group with 2x wins & a draw. I was very surprised by the Belgium win of 3-1! FIRST ROUND First round was against Austria & we were favourites. The match was actually very close and Austria are well organised. A penalty from Harry Kane won it for us. QUARTER FINALS The quarter finals were against Spain & they were big favourites. We got a shocking 4-0 win and played some beautiful football. You can see below our beautiful Tiki Taka goal. SEMI FINALS The Semi Finals were against Portugal and they were again favourites. We picked up a narrow win against a strong Portugal team. We are so close to winning the European championship for the first time in our history. FINALS The Euro 2020 finals and were up against Holland who have won the competition before & are favourites! We again manage to somehow win a close game by a narrow margin of 2-1! We have done it - England are the Euro 2020 Champions and the best country in Europe!🥳🏆 MANAGERS STATS EURO 2021 STATS
  3. CHOOSING THE SQUAD I chose Sandecja Nowy Sącz because they were one of the smaller clubs in the Polish Fortuna league. The club has a vibrant history, being formed in 1910 & being named after a popular local Catholic priest, who was a passionate fan of the club. I really want to do well for this club & test out my Philosophy with amended transfer policy. STADIUM & FACILITIES On my 1st day with Sandecja, I asked the board if the Stadium & Facilities could be improved. The board agreed to upgrade the 1st Team Facilities which are now at a good standard, the youth facilities remain adequate. The stadium also remains at 2,994 capacity BUT normally packs this out. STAFF, FINANCES & TRAINING The training regime has been delegated to my Assistant Manager Rafal Wislocki. The staff room has been filled in & improved. The finances remain in a very healthy state despite heavy spending on transfers in. SQUAD The squad saw many changes with only 2/3 original players staying at the squad. In reviewing my progress in Football Manager, transfers in are an area of the game I really struggle with. For this career, I tried a new transfer policy again which can be seen below(The attributes are actually the ones FMMVibe posted in 2012!!): TACTIC For this save, I used my attacking Tiki-Taka tactic, based on Barcelona's 2011 squad because it has been so successful for me.The tactic worked very well this season,with the best attack in the league. The defence was sometimes leaky & a few times it was a case of 'we will score more than you'. THE RESULT The result of my 1st season was successful, with Sandecja winning the Fortuna 1 Liga 🥳🏆. The season was won by our amazing attacking players & we scored 61x this season. I end the season, with my philosophy & amended transfer policy with a win rate of 62%!!

  4. CHOOSING THE SQUAD For this career, I choose to manage Adelaide United FC because they were the smallest club to manage in Australia. Founded in 2003, it is the only club playing in the A-League from the state of South Australia. In a league which is growing and developing, can Adelaide United still have an impact? STADIUM & FACILITIES On my 1st day, I did ask the board to improve the stadium & facilities. The board did agree to upgrade the clubs facilities from average to good quality. The stadium did not get upgraded & holds 16,500 supporters of which we can rely on a solid 12,000 fans weekly. STAFF, FINANCES & TRAINING The training regime was delegated over to my Assistant Manager Harry Kewell. The club staff room got many upgrades with more coaches &, at a better standard. The finances are secure but this season we did go over budget because of transfers in. SQUAD The squad underwent almost an entire transformation with a lot of either young inexperienced players or older ones. My transfers were done through the following filter: 20-30 year olds - No Injured Players GK-handling/reflexes DR/L-Tackling/Stamina DC-Tackling/Heading/Positioning DMC-Tackling/Stamina MC-Passing/Stamina AMR/L-Crossing/Dribbling/Pace FC-Shooting/Aerial/Pace TACTICS I used my Attacking Tiki Taka Tactic for this career because it has won me a lot. We struggled a lot in the A-league and the stats suggest we had a great defence but poor attack. You can see this was the difference as 1st placed team scored 50 in contrast to our 31 goals! THE RESULT The result was both positive & very surprising with the club scrapping into 4th Place in the league as well as winning the A League Finals Series. The Stats suggest this was purely based on our amazing defence which was one of the best in the league. Our attack was woeful and lead to our form being inconsistent with 17x draws & loses from 26 matches. STEPS FOR SUCCESS MANAGERS STATS LEAGUE STATS
  5. @JustM1kePlays, I am subscribed to your chanel & thought your video's were amazing! Some of the older ones with the guides to international management etc were really useful. Career's can be difficult to post. I get the feeling that with the editing as well, you felt you were putting in more than getting out of it. In saying that & reiterating my initial point, I loved your FMM video's. There is something more visually appealing about video's & images as words can be interpretive whereas if someone show's you like this, it brings it to life. Only my humble opinion.
  6. CHOOSING THE CLUB Inter Miami were a club I really wanted to manage due to their short history & relatively small stature in the MLS. The club was only formed 3 years ago & has England Legend David Beckham as an owner. With a mix of older & younger players, I wanted to test my philosophy & the guide that was published yesterday. STADIUM & FACILITIES My 1st action as Inter Miami Manager was to request an upgrade to the Stadium & Facilities from the board, which they accepted. Both the 1st team & youth team facilities are excellent. The stadium has been improved to hold 22,500 supporters with this number being filled most weeks. STAFF, FINANCES & TRAINING My 2nd task as manager was to improve the club staffroom, which has been done, giving us a full backroom team & upgraded staff members. The finances were able to be kept in the green, this is due to cheap incoming players & pricey outgoing players. I delegated the training system to my Assistant Manager. SQUAD As you can see below, we had quite a big transfer market. The club had a lot of young players & old players who did not possess the quality to stay at the club. The players in fit in with the player roles dictated by the tactic which was "Gegenpressing", luckily, most of the players better to this system ended up cheaper. TACTIC In carrying on my 'Guide to FMM' posted yesterday, I decided to trust my Assistant Manager's opinion on the tactic - he recommended "Gegenpressing". Despite the team summary saying we had a lot more RED points to GREEN, the squad & tactic worked incredibly well. Our attack was not good but our solid defence meant the few goals we did score usually made us winners. THE RESULTS My 1st season with Inter Miami using my Philosophy & trusting my Assistant Manager's opinion on the tactic and we have ended up Eastern Conference Champion's & more importantly, MLS Cup Champions🥳🥳🥳🏆🏆. We achieved it with a Solid defence & players who were suited to each role in the tactic. I leave the USA with a win rate of 61% & 2x League wins! Result's like this confirm my Philosophy & get my excited to play FMM21 more. STEPS FOR SUCCESS MANAGERS STATS LEAGUE STATS
  7. Good Evening All, Hope this finds you all well, This is just a post to help those players that are new to this Football Manager. The game has so many different aspect's which is why we love it, but it can be confusing or overwhelming if your coming to it for the first time. As always with some of my post's, this is a very rough guide on how you can just pick up & play the game without thinking too much. This is not the right or wrong way to play & it is encouraged to find your own style of Football Management. STARTING A NEW GAME Firstly, The game gives you the chance to manage in 24 Countries, which is a lot. The club you decide to manage can be based on anything - winning trophies, getting lower teams to the top or being a club which holds meaning for you. The general consensus is that when you start, it may be easier if you are a club you are familiar with & know the players for. Once you have chosen, every club with inform you of the board's expectation ( This is your most important goal & the most important thing to keep your job). Alternatively, once you have chosen the country, you can start unemployed & work your way up the ranks. BOARD REQUESTS Everyone plays differently & has varied priorities but one of the key priorities to me is the foundations of the club - The stadium & the Facilities. In reality, the bricks & mortar of the club will be there long after the managers & the players. This was the 1st point listed out by Sir Alex Ferguson in his "Steps for Success" - Start with the foundations. In the game, you can request the board upgrades the Stadium, 1st & Youth team facilities. You can also request affiliate clubs proving a lasting link with the club. MANAGER OPTIONS The managers option's screen is fantastic & basically provides you the chance to say what manager you want to be - from very hands on( Handling Training/ Youth Promotions etc) to very hands off ( Delegating it all to your Assistant & Coaches). If you are new to the game, maybe delegating more of these would be better to just pick up & play FMM21 with the option to take more control as you wish. CLUB STAFF The club staff screen is very important & can have a huge effect. For me, Gold & Natural coaches can have a huge effect on a players development. In addition to this, Prevention Physio's can help reduce injuries to top players greatly. Therefore, in my opinion, it is very important to improve staff member's whenever possible - From Bronze to Silver or Silver to Gold badged. CLUB FINANCES The Club Finances are also a huge part of Football Manager. The main reason is obviously stability as a club losing money every week will eventually be in dire straits or bankruptcy! Also, There is a big tactical side to the transfers as spending big one season & not gaining promotion etc, may leave you with no funds next season. This said, you need to be very careful with this & try to keep the finances screen as Green! If it turn's orange or red, it means action is definitely required - Eg: Sell players etc. CLUB SQUAD-TRAINING Club Training is significant & can make a big difference on the pitch. Once you have found the tactic you want to play & the roles within it, you can set the players training regime. In the training screen, you can specifically input which role it is you want a player to learn as well as a specific attribute to focus on. This is something which you can delegate to a coach & they will be in charge of training. TEAM REPORT- SUMMARY Although there are no action's on these screen's, it is one of the most important. The Team Summary page provides an overview on where you club stands in comparison to the league you are playing in - PSG for example have lots of green & a only a few reds, because they are by far the best squad in the league. In addition to this, the suggested XI provides you a snapshot of your best XI based on the opinion of your Assistant Manager. This mean's player's stars rating are only a reflection of how good players are within your team. I would advise new players to give these screen's a glance to see where the club stands as it is. TACTICS Tactic's in my opinion are the most important of Football Manager. The tactic implemented can reflect your football playing style & result in absolutely beautiful football on the pitch. This year, FMM21 has made it even easier for beginners to create the best tactic for the team you choose. I have detailed the process of creating the tactic below: Assistant Manager recommends the best playing style with the current squad( Eg: Tiki Taka for PSG). Clicking on More Info provides you an in-depth explanation of that playing style. Assistant Manager recommends specific formation's that suit your playing style. Finally, You choose the formation you prefer & are provided a fully formed & balanced tactic ready to go. The tactic also provides you something else - player roles!( EG: Sweeper Keeper etc) Of course, you can also create a tactic yourself through looking at squad depth & identifying best/worse position's as well as area's with lots of players & those with few players. ASSESS YOUR SQUAD Assessing the squad is the next thing to do and probably the most fun too. Through assessing the squad, you can learn which players should stay & which should go. Assessing the squad relies heavily on players individual personalities & attributes. There are a lot of attributes & this process can be confusing. Luckily, in training screen, it provides you the Key Attributes for the roles your assistant has recommended to you ( as seen below). A good way of assessing the squad is bringing up the player search screen & assessing each position with those player templates, you can include your own squad in the search to see if you already have the 2x best sweeper keepers OR is there someone reasonably priced who fit's the role better? TRANSFERS Transfer's in & out can make OR break a season on Football Manager. I think every manager make's transfer's differently & transfers into the club are usually made in the following ways: Scout players Player search based on templates( Seen below) Player search based on personal preference (EG- FM's attributes below) Player's out are mostly made due to quality & not being good enough for the squad going forward. Be aware of the effect this may have though based on the squad dynamics. MATCH DAY The match day is what you have been waiting for- all the tactics, transfers etc has all been building to this! I would recommend watching the match on the default settings chosen or with extended highlights. It is a good speed & provides an opportunity to see how your instruction's are playing out on the pitch. In term's of the screen's, the overview screen & player rating screen's are my personal favourite. Most importantly, you want to make sure your shot's & shot's on target are more than the opposition - at the end of the day, goals win matches. Everyone makes changes in-game differently but the game lay's out good changes to make for you: Red Condition/ Rating - Player is struggling with fitness during the match & may get injured if not subbed OR player is having a poor performance which may lead to more goal's, confidence issues etc. ( As seen below) MEDIA COMMENT'S & RED CARD Football Manager can provide some issues which you need to respond to the press above, these can vary but are mostly for - Outstanding performances, Poor form or Red Card's given. Firstly, with Red Card's, you can decide how harsh or lenienty you want to be with your player. I normally choose a 2 week fine as red card's every week are not helpful to the squad & the player has the learn. In contrast, with comments on players playing well, I normally build this up which normally helps with confidence & maintain's the players good form. Finally with poor form player's, It is good to check the players average rating & make an informed reaction, above 7 rating & I normally tell the press the player is doing fine. SEASON RESULTS Finally, the last day of the season has come & you can assess your 1st season as manager. The ultimate reflection of the job you have done is in board satisfaction & hitting their expected finish. For PSG, success may be reaching for another Ligue 1 title whereas for Sheffield United, just staying in the Premier League is success. Rome was NOT built in a day & Football Manager gives you the chance to build - just like Alex Ferguson at Manchester United! I hope this help's any new players to Football Manager Mobile 2021! So much of Football Manager & Football in general is opinion & everyone likes doing things differently. This guide is for those players who are just lost & find the whole game daunting. The game has tried, especially this year to almost gift you with a template on how to play BUT with almost endless scope on changes you can make to take full control yourself!😊
  8. Many thanks mate! Really appreciate it 😊
  9. Season 3 - Champions of Belgium!🎖 I have just completed my 3rd & Final season with KFC Mandel United. We have managed to win the Jupiler Pro League!🥳🥳🥳 This was made possible by improving my squad to ensure the defence remained very solid whilst buying young, hungry attackers. We played really well all season with a few blips. This really was an incredible achievement especially as belgium has one of the toughest leagues in my opinion!
  10. Season 2 - One step closer! My 2nd season at KFC Mandel United and we have gained promotion to Jupiler Pro League!🥳🏆It was a really tough & inconsistent season with the promotion literally going to the last 90mins. As the stats suggest, our defence was very strong but attack was woefully weak. We will need to play better than this next season.
  11. CHOOSING THE CLUB I chose KFC Mandel United because it was the smallest belgium side in FMM21. The club was only formed in 2017! Hopefully, I can create some real history to this relatively new club. STADIUM & FACILITIES As always, I asked the board to upgrade the Facilities & Stadium but they declined this request. The 1st team & Youth Facilities are average standard. The Stadium looks beautiful & modern, holding 2000 supporters, which is normally packed out, indicating really good support for the club. STAFF,FINANCES & TRAINING The training system was delegated to my Assistant Manager & Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp. The small backroom team was increased, with Dennis joining the team & 2x Bronze scouts. Although I acted quite frugally in the transfer market, the finances did go slightly over, but are still secure. SQUAD As seen below, many players were bought & released from the club - this was purely based on quality ( based on my search from tester career). All players which left were released due to the quick injection of funds from this, only 1x existing player stayed at the club. The players bought in through my player search detailed in my tester, with cheaper players preferred due to the small size of the budget. TACTICS I used my Attacking Tiki Taka Tactic for this career. The players bought in were perfect for this technical system & performed very well. This is shown by the results below, with a very solid defence & attack. THE RESULT The result in my 1st season with KFC Mandel United was outstanding, winning the Belgian First Amateur Division. The strong defence & attack with the squad-full of new high quality players all helped in achieving this victory. The belgian leagues are very competitive & tricky to break through easily, so this win feels even more special. STEPS FOR SUCCESS MANAGERS STATS LEAGUE STATS
  12. This is my 1x year career with Wexford, who play in the Airtricity First Division. This career was a tester for me with the opportunity of sharpening my philosophy. I wanted us to do well as it would give an indication of whether my changes were positive or not. The difference was the way I searched for players. For GK, I searched for players with Agility handling Reflexes And for Outfield players, I searched: Dribbling Passing Technique I love Guardiola's side of 2011 & researched that the best players in this side were excellent at these key skills on the game - Messi, Iniesta, Xavi. This is my rationale for this tester career. Honestly, the results were better than I could've hoped for, winning the League & the Daily Mail Cup! Our defence was the best & our attack was 2nd best. I ended the career with a win rate of 64% which is excellent. I am intrigued to maybe give this a wider chance now but was nice to return to Ireland and test this out. Thanks for reading.
  13. Season 4 - One Step Forward, Two steps back. Season 4 took a really surprising turn & the squad took a major step back finishing 6th. I do not really understand the reason for such a dip but of course, we lost & drew more matches we were winning. The stats suggest our defence was good & it was the attack that let us down but also, we hardly kept a clean sheet so this punished us. Only thing to do is to brush ourselves down and double efforts next season. Season 5- Past wrongs corrected- Champions at last! 🥳🏆 My 5th & final season in turkey ends with Göztepe FC becoming the double champions. A few quality signings in the summer seemed to have corrected the wrongs of last season. Our defence was solid & we were scoring considerably more goals. The Cup run was a fantastic feat considering the competitiveness of Turkish Football.
  14. Season 3 - So close but not there...YET!! I have just completed my 1st Season with Göztepe FC and it was 'successful'. The club finished an impressive 2nd in the Süper Lig which is remarkable considering we were just promoted last season. This said though, we missed out by a minor 2x point gap which is agonising, although won't deter me in getting to the top next season. One final positive note is that our reserve team ended up winning their league!🥳🥳🥳 I just ended up moving over my logo's from previous versions mate.
  15. Season 2 - Positive Career Move My 2nd season in Turkey took an unexpected turn. My 2nd season with Karacabey FC was very good, with us finishing 3rd in the league, reaching the play-offs. At the same time, I received an offer from Göztepe FC to become there new manager. On reviewing the offer, they were a bigger club & had already achieved automatic promotion - so, I accepted there offer!!🥳 In saying that, you can see from the league stats that my former team performed very well in this league and probably would have been favourites for promotion via the playoffs! It was a tough decision to change clubs but liked that Göztepe FC had already won automatic promotion. I conclude season 2 with a 55% win rate! 😁 added 0 minutes later Many thank's mate, really enjoying it. It's more competitive in the lower leagues than I imagined.
