  1. Some, if not most will call me crazy for undergoing what I’m about to do, and you’ll all be correct. This journey will more than likely end in failure, but it will be a hell of a ride! Welcome Vibe, to my first ever career of FMM19! After getting pretty deep into a save and being “fairly” confident there’s no “major” bugs that can affect this challenge I’m happy to go along with it. The challenge I am undertaking is of course every man and his dogs favourite 1k Challenge, but there’s a twist of sorts (unless you’ve read the title of course). I will be setting myself a target of 2000 goals, yes that’s right, 2000 goals. It’s only ever been done a handful of times on Vibe i believe. @PriZe doing so with Isak in 2017 is the only one I can think of, I apologise if I’ve missed someone else’s attempt. Myself and Prize have actually been talking about the possibility of achieving one this year, and we both agreed it’s possible under the right circumstances. So to complete the target I’ve set i need to be hitting high numbers fast and consistently doing so. This requires a special breed of player in my opinion, one who can hit the ground running and deliver game after game. It also requires a certain type of league to do so in, Portugal sounds about right. That’s right I’m heading to Portugal, and more importantly Lisbon, and even more importantly, Benfica. One of the greatest clubs in Portuguese football, with “state of the art” training facilities and “top” youth academy I simply couldn’t resist the urge of The Eagles! Now for the player, as I mentioned before, this challenge requires a certain breed of player, he has to be young as I need all the time i can get for this challenge, and he also needs to be talented. Step up Fábio Silva, a 15 year old striker lying in the youth team of our main domestic rivals FC Porto. He’s got decent numbers in all the right areas considering his age, so I’ve no doubt he’ll turn into a great Poacher/Advanced Forward, but me being me, I’ve decided to train him as a Target Man as that’s what his role will be in the formation/tactic I’m using. So there we go guys, that’s the introduction over and done with, season one of this mammoth journey will be up in the next couple of days. Wish me luck and please remember to leave a comment! Target: 0/2000 Thanks for reading
  2. Thanks mate, I hope it is Cheers mate, much appreciated
  3. @The_VARF the next update has some extra stats as you requested 😁 I’ve remembered to screenshot team assists/goals and average ratings for you
  4. Epic indeed! I hope so, thanks for reading mate added 0 minutes later Thanks buddy! Let’s hope 🤞🏼
  5. Cheers mate, plodding is what I do best Would have been a horrible way to end! I stopped playing the save for around a week when he was refusing to sign, mainly out of fear 😂 It’s definitely going to be close but I think he’s on schedule and can maybe afford one average season So am I, thanks! Cheers mate

    The OME Cup - Challenge 3

    Probably not. I’ve just had City offer a £100m for Cavani only for the transfer to be cancelled for no reason! Two weeks later he goes to Arsenal for £54m 😂😂 gad zooks this game man

    I hate full squad rebuilds 🤬
  8. Damn 😛 Ok, is it Ighalo? The former Watford man
  9. Nice double there 😛 My guess is Asamoah Gyan?
  10. Because you are born with 13 agility. Have you never seen the video of Baby De Gea leaping like a cat and clawing away a strike bound for the top corner! 😛 You can’t teach that!😂
  11. It’s finally here! FMM19 has rolled out onto the digital shelves, and I for one am super excited at this years edition. For those who have played the game, you will have noticed that the biggest new feature is the revamped training system. We’ve been begging SI for years to revamp the old system and they have finally delivered what we’ve all been asking for. For those unsure about how the new training system works, fear not, for I have compiled a handy little guide that hopefully you’ll all find helpful as you begin your managerial story in FMM19. For those of you thinking this is some super intensive training regime like I had last year, it isn’t. As of yet I cannot find any way to create such a high intensity training regime this year as each save is unique, and therefore it’s a case of riding your bike without the stabilisers on this year. What this guide will do hopefully, is point you in the right direction of what to do, and what not to do. Setting-Up: First things first, before we even head into the training menu, you need to decide which tactic you’ll be using. The reason you need to do this is simply because you need to know which player roles you need to be training your players in. For example, it’s no good in training your attacking midfielder in the Shadow Striker role when you don’t have a Shadow Striker in your tactic. Training Overview: Once you’ve decided on the tactic you’ll be using as you embark on your managerial journey, a trip into the training menu is next on the agenda. At first this page can be completely daunting, but it takes only a little bit of playing around to get used to it. The page is split vertically into six sections which are from left to right: Player Name Attribute Focus Positional Focus Role Focus Training Intensity Progress What I’ll do is talk you through each section individually so we can all get to grips in some way as to what they all do: Player Name - The simplest one, no need to explain this surely Attribute Focus - This is the tab with which you decide which specific attribute to train your player in, and can be changed at any time. Simply tap on the attribute tab next to the player you’d like to change and it will bring up a sub menu with all the attributes listed. Select whichever one you’d like to focus on and voila, that player will have added focus on that specific attribute alongside his other training duties. Still with me? Great 🙃 Positional Focus - This is the tab that has replaced the old “retrain position” option on the player page in the older versions of the game. This is now where you come to retrain your players position on the pitch. Again, it’s just a case of tapping on the position tab that corresponds to the player you want to retrain, and it will bring up the pitch view from previous versions with his aptitude and ability for the position still there. So if your tactic doesn’t employ a DMC, do not waste valuable training time in retraining players to the DMC role. Role Focus - This one is the same as the previous two in that you press the tab that corresponds to the player you want to train and it will bring up a list of player roles. So currently in my tactic, I’ve got Neymar playing in the AMR position as a Winger. So to go hand in hand with that I train his position to be natural in the AMR spot, whilst focusing his training on the Winger Role and I’m also training up his teamwork as his attribute Focus as to try and make him a little bit less selfish. Note: You can only train a player in a role that is available in the position he’s being trained in. So if you’ve got an AP that could be retrained as a striker, you won’t be able to carry on training him as an AP. For this it would have to be a case of retraining him as a striker at the cost of some of his AP attributes. Training Intensity - This is where you select how intensive you want a certain player to train. Tap this and up pops three different options; Intensive, Normal & Light. Please note that having every single player on intensive won’t work and you will most definitely have an injury crisis on your hands sooner rather than later. The way around this is to go to a players personal training page which will have a coach report ready for you in there. In the negative column, if your coach states the player “wants a heavier training regime” then by all means whack his training up to intensive - this however, does not mean he won’t get injured. It simply means that a heavier training regime will yield better results. Now if you look on the positive side of some players, they will sometimes have phrases like “robust” or “resilient physique” these are the players that are safe to put on an intensive training regime without fear of serious injury - although they may still get injured, that is unfortunately a risk you take as a manager. Another tip is to check your coach report for the player, if your coach states he “may have concerns over injuries” that means the player is injury prone and will undoubtedly get injured from intensive training, or even medium training. Countering that, if your coach states a player is rarely injured, then by all means take the risk of intensive training. Progress Bar - Not much can be said on this as it’s still a little bit unclear as to what it all does. I understand that the green bar is the players progress until he makes his next “step up” as a player. From what I’ve gathered so far about the yellow bar, it is when a player has peaked and simply won’t develop any further, unless of course you improve your training facilities or coaches etc in which case he may be able to improve a little more. Important Notes to Remember: Always remember to set your tactic up first before even opening the training page Make sure you know which players will play in which position/role. Go through each players individual training page for some handy tips from your assistant regarding training Intensity Listen to your Assitant manager! Especially when you get a news item through stating he’s been impressed with a players progress in training - that means the player in question has “levelled up” so it may be time to change Attribute Focus Be expressive - this is a largely untested feature, so go ahead and be expressive with it. If you want to train your WB to be a BBM Midfielder then go ahead and do it! Have fun with it, it will take considerably more time to develop players this year - embrace that, it’s a good thing 😀 Thanks for reading, if I’ve missed anything out that you’re not quite sure of then let me know in the comments below. I know this isn’t the most informative or well structured guide but I’m still learning myself. If you have any handy tips for your fellow Vibers then feel free to leave them in the comments below and I’d be happy to add them into the OP.
  12. Agility apparently isn’t a primary attribute for either GK or Sweeper Keeper. So basically to train a goalkeepers agility (which as you say is probably his only real attribute) you have to focus individually on that attribute! Games mad sometimes 😂
  13. Stunning guess that 😛 That is amazing form though I must say! 😳 just gotta keep those sharks from circling now 😂😂

    The OME Cup - Challenge 3

    It’s nice to take a step back from the game sometimes mate. I honestly didn’t think that Challenge was that evil 😂 Definitely not @samhardy level evil anyway 😛
  15. I ignore what the game says is a primary attribute to be honest, I go with what I believe is a primary attribute
  16. Higher than 15!! 😳😳 holy crap he must be on for over a 100 Goals then?! my guess is 22 😛
  17. Season Thirteen Transfers:- Outgoing: Incoming: Competitions:- Supertaça - Beat Guimaraes 6-0 with Silva scoring 5 goals in the opener European Super Cup - Beat Hamburg 3-1 Club World Cup - Beat New York Red Bulls 3-0 League Cup - Beat Sporting Lisbon 5-1 Taça de Portugal - Beat Feirense 3-0 League - Won the league by a huge 34 point margin this season Champions League - Beat Juventus 3-0 Manager Profile & Season History:- Fábio Silva 2k Challenge:- Well here it is, potentially Silva’s final season at Benfica. His contract was fast running out and he could have agreed terms with other clubs from January onwards. Come February though, the unthinkable happened, and despite him still loathing me as a manager he signs a new five year contract with the club which sees him stay until June 2036! You guys have no idea how happy I was when he signed the deal. I’ve been praising him relentlessly for the past two seasons in the hope it had some effect. It may have or may not, but Silva stays! His attributes remain the same again this season As for goals, well on the ITN scene he managed a decent total of 23 goals to add to his tally, he now sits on 188 International goals and will soon be eligible for the 200 ITN goals leaderboard. As for club level, another injury resulted in him only managing 51 games this season but his GPG was fantastic as he bangs in 95 goals through the campaign to give him an end of season total of 118 goals. Season Goals:- ITN - 23 Club - 95 Total - 118 Career Goals:- ITN - 188 Club - 1,108 Total - 1,296/2000 Plodding along nicely now with Fábio, the next couple of years should see us fly past the 1.5K mark. After that, it’s the home stretch. As always Vibe, thanks for reading and please remember to leave a comment 😁

    I also managed to sign Cesc Fabregas on a free transfer after he was randomly released by Chelsea 😂🤷🏻‍♂️

    The OME Cup - Challenge 3

    I had Higuain/Depay & some African striker upfront, Marega? Anyway, Higuain was the worst of the three I believe with the African lad having a decent season. Felt so good to use the BWM role knowing full well it works on the engine! 😂
  21. I’ll admit I googled club World Cup finals and as soon as I saw Adriano I knew it was him instantly after his league winning antics in the Ukraine. I mean 7 league titles is a lot so it was a fairly easy search
  22. Easy this one, Luiz Adriano. 6 titles with Shakhtar, 1 title with Spartak Moscow. CWC win with Internacional 😎

    The OME Cup - Challenge 3

    Wow, didn’t expect that. I’m curious to know who everyone’s defenders were now. My back four consisted of: RB- Alves/Ivanovic CB - Pepe/Fonte/Naldo/Jeremy Mathieu LB - Mathieu/Ashley Cole/ Eliseu I also played a fairly attacking 433 formation due to the majority of the points being in league points. Didn’t expect to concede the least goals too 😛
