  1. 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 Β£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'.
  2. 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 Β£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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.πŸ‘
  5. 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 Β£30.75. Our biggest spend was a whooping Β£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!!!!!!!

    Good Evening All, I am and always have been a Manchester United fan. I used to write to club when I was younger, I buy there kits & play as them on all football games. One of the best moments as a fan was the 1998/1999 season, When we won the Treble of the Premier League, FA cup & the Champions league. Wikipedia sums up this year best explaining that The 1998–99 season was the most successful season in the history of Manchester United Football Club.During the campaign United lost only five times, including a one-off Charity Shield fixture, in the League Cup against eventual winners Tottenham Hotspur and their only home defeat, a league match against Middlesbrough in December 1998. A run of 33 games unbeaten in all competitions began on 26 December at home to Nottingham Forest. I have spent all this week researching & creating the tactic which helped create the most successful season in our history. The basis of the tactic was the 4-4-2 formation. It consisted of a solid back four, creative but hardworking midfielders topped off with a deadly forward line of Cole & Yorke. Let me discuss it further below: So, The way i assessed the Man Utd 99 team was: GK - PETER SCHMEICHEL FB - GARY NEVILLE FB - DENNIS IRWIN CB- JAAP STAM CB- RONNY JOHNSEN WM- DAVID BECKHAM BBM- ROY KEANE BBM- PAUL SCHOLES W-RYAN GIGGS CF-DWIGHT YORKE CF-ANDY COLE After watching multiple matches with the 99' squad, I came to following conclusion: Attacking-Man Utd were a talented & hard working team. They would run non-stop & constantly pass directly to keep in the final third. Wide- So many of the passes and attacks stem from the wings. Beckham and neville with their crosses and giggs with his running at defences. Tempo/Creativity balanced- with both of these, there was a clear pattern in the way we played. In possession we played the ball very fast & direct with creativity sky high whereas in defence, the defence & midfield worked as a unit to slow the opposition right down & hunt with discipline to win the ball back. In regards to defence I found the following: Defensive line/Closing down/Tackling/Offside Trap- Man Utd 99' played with a solid back four who held a high defensive line. We defended all of the pitch starting with Yorke/Cole, going through beckham/Giggs & then Keane & the back four, our defence was relentless. Committed tackling in-deed, reason for keane & scholes sometimes being off - if there was even a sniff of getting the ball, they would stick a challenge in. This all made complete sense as the higher you win the ball, the more likely you can score a goal. Time Wasting- NONE, Almost to the point of being stupid. The opposite of time wasting. Every player ran like it was there last match both in and out of possession. With the final part of the tactic I found: Final Third-In the final third, we did most of the things suggested in the game including early crosses,overlaps,long shots,run at defence etc. Passing Style-Our play was very direct which at times looked messy with the ball being hoofed all the time up front but when it worked, it was so dangerous & managed to create lots of chances. Passing focus-passing focus was generally mixed although tough one. Beckham & giggs got the majority of balls as they were the two most creative players for us. This being said, Cole & Yorke got lots of direct passes normally with one of them acting as Target man for the other. Goalkeeper distribution-In the matches I watched it was always the same with the goalkeeper kicks , always long. I watched at least 5+ examples of this and no short balls out. Blending with the direct mentality, schmeichel would normally boot it to beckham, giggs or further to Yorke or Cole.

  8. I tried it for a few more matches which got wins or draws but not tested anywhere else.
  9. Not got this far yet. Have researched it and formulated the tactic. Played 2x games so far - 2-0 win above and 3-0 win against swansea. If there are any testers, I'd love to see how this got on.
  10. Please provide feedback. Over 400 people have now downloaded this tactic on the home page. Is it πŸ‘ or a πŸ‘Ž? Please message back your results. Ta, Stuart
  11. 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.
  12. Video of 1st match using it. Recommend slowing the playback speed to maximise enjoyment.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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

  19. 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
  20. 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 πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘
  21. I am still using this process in FMM19 to great results if newbies needed some guidance 😁
  22. Good Evening all, First of all, i would just like to acknowledge that this is not a special technique but just a method i use to logically assemble my club on Football Manager 2018 season by season. I also find that finding a process on this game is sometimes hard and this should help with those who are stuck. I hope you enjoy and welcome any advice or comments. My process has around 15 steps as seen below: 1) ASK THE BOARD TO EXPAND THE STADIUM EVERY SEASON This really stems from Alex Fergusons 8 steps to success(http://www.businessinsider.com/sir-alex-ferguson-reveals-8-secrets-to-success-2013-9?IR=T) . His first point is you should start with the foundations and build a club rather than being purely results driven. This is followed in my next two points as well. 2) ASK THE BOARD TO IMPROVE THE TRAINING FACILITIES Same as the point above and vitally important, with teams who get relegated from the premiership and wonderhow to spend the high amount of money they have, they often opt for players than buildings but world class facilities will be there much longer than players and will help build up the players you already have leading to a win win situation, a bit like Burnley FC now. 3) ASK THE BOARD TO IMPROVE THE YOUTH FACILITIES This is last on the list to ask the board but if you get it right like Manchester city and united, your club can effectively run itself through the youth comming through, the first team players and the senior players leading from the front. A world club youth centre is essential. 4)SET HOLIDAY TO REJECT ALL OFFERS AND DO NOT BUY PLAYERS I always think with these two things that firstly, whoever you are with, you do not want to be a selling team. As soon as i start with a club, i am putting a stamp down that we are holding onto our best players and building to be the best rather than settling for second best. Also, i do not like anyone else buying players for my philosophy but me, its a waste of the wage budget and normally i find not the players i need most. 5)ASSISTANT CONTROLS FRIENDLIES/YOUTH PROMOTIONS AND LOANS OUT UNDER 21S My thinking with this again comes from the great manager Sir Alex, he learnt as time went by that he needed to delagate his work load. This is the way i do it. Friendlies are mostly for fitness and if i choose the staff members, they should hold my vision of the youth players i want at the club. I think under 21 is a suitable age to make that judgement on whether they will cut it at the big club or not. 6)ALWAYS GET THE BEST STAFF AROUND YOU This step is quite self explanatory but taken greatly from Louis Van Gaal - he stresses in the presentation how he has a lot of staff who in his eyes are more important than the team. They control the day to day running of the club, from the assistant picking youth players, the scouts finding new talent to pyshios who can keep your best players playing, they are vital. 7)MAKE SURE FINANCES STAY IN THE GREEN Again, self explanatory but for examples of bad management, take Portsmouth, Leeds etc who spent a bit extra looking for big returns and instead only found relegation and suffering to get back to the same level - please take note. For good management, take Arsenal who take the balance book seriously and still manager to find themselves winning cups etc. 8) USE THE RIGHT TRAINING METHOD I have used intensive training but find players become unhappy easily especially at a lower level so i normally still to the below: * Every player placed on general with all apart from GK set as medium * GK are kept on the same training as default 9)USE THE RIGHT TACTIC FOR THE SQUAD So with this one, i use my own specific tactic to do this one. I both love the TIKI TAKA system and think with the right players and management, it can be massively successful and keep you in control of a league. Of course, there are plenty of tactics on this website and if not a tactic on here, please model it on the players already in the squad. 10)WORK OUT THE PLAYERS REQUIRED So, this step us getting more connected with the formation and tactic to build a philosophy of the way you want to play - for example: Some managers might have had Messi as a target man or inside forward but the False 9 was chosen for a reason and to amazing effect. My tactic incorporates the following as taken from this book.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coaching-Tiki-Taka-Style-Play/dp/0957670540 SWK WBK BPD DM DLP APM IF T 11)WORK OUT WHICH PLAYERS ARE GOOD ENOUGH I take this information from https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://mrdaniels.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/fm_handheld_hints_and_tips.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwi8pvaJkLPZAhVMKVAKHSiVAZIQFjAAegQIExAB&usg=AOvVaw1vk4Fscag3BOVYdUqvCR4D and https://community.sigames.com/manual/football-manager-mobile-2018/your-team-r315 Marc Vaughan in a previous game has marked out that world class teams can work by ths system: 10- Good Attribute 14- Very Good Attribute 16-Excellent Attribute I use this for every team as i always want to build them to a world class level so might as well use this template, This information, along with the Key Atributes for each position outlined in the FMM 18 manual, makes for a good general standard for where players are at or if they are good enough. For example - a Left back with 14 for tackling and 15 stamina suggests in general he is a very good player. In Contrary, if a centre back with heading 10 tackling 9 and positioning 15, i would look to offload them. Tackling is a key attribute and that player was not even classed as 'good' for it. This is not an exact art form but a guide. 12) WHAT TO DO WITH PLAYERS WHO ARENT GOOD ENOUGH? I normally weigh up whether it is best or quickest to transfer list and demote a player or release. Sometimes, your club may really need the money,but other times you need to kick on with the redevelopment andthe wage budget is big, in which case releasing the player to open space and wage budget makes sense. 13)TRANSFER MARKET I like to be savy in the transfer market so i normally use this guide https://community.sigames.com/manual/football-manager-mobile-2018/your-team-r315 and check for players, first with 16 ratings, then 14 and then 10. Once players appear, i usually chose the cheapest player which fits my need. The player develops more with training and no need paying over the odds for a flop! I am trying to be smarter in the market to suit my team by getting treqartistas with AMC attributes and Inside forwards with Forwards attributes. 14) SETTING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS Soo, i am quite strict on myself as the manager in order to set the highest standards at the club. In the book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Modern-Soccer-Coach-2014-Dimensional/dp/1909125326 it states that Man Utd once had a team goal not to go through the season losing two games in a row. I set myself a goal to never lose 3 games in a row -If i do, i ask the board to allow me extra time. This one is the most optional on this list but means im aiming high and wanting to be the best. Plus, if you dont lose 3 games in a row, you are normally by the top of the table and if you do lose 3 games in a row, its a strong lesson that the team needs changing ASAP! 15)MATCH MANAGEMENT I play matches a bit like Louis Van Gaal with little tinkering and happy to watch the match as a student, seing the trends and themes. I make my changes at half time and they include: β˜† Substitute any players who have their fitness in 60% or lower( below the level of fitness to perform at their best in the 2nd half) β˜† Substitue any players who have their rating at 5 or lower( below the level of performance i demand of the players) i hope you have enjoyed this and feel free to comment etc on it.
