  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. FMM19: Free Transfers XI Forget your Neymar’s, forget your Pogba’s and forget your Mbappe’s. We all occasionally love splashing the cash on the games very best superstars, or promising wonderkids, but the real thrill of this beautiful game we call FMM comes from unearthing that reject, or rough diamond that we believe can produce the goods at a fraction of the price. That’s why in this list, I’ve conjured up a squad of rejects that can all be bought for absolutely nothing. All of the players in the below list are available on a free transfer at the start of a new save. The leagues I loaded were England, France, Germany & Spain which gave me a whopping 22,000 player database. Of that 22,000 database, 1,272 players were free agents and thus my search began. I started by applying a few filters for attributes favourable in certain positions, so for my goalkeeper search I filtered a minimum of 13 in Kicking, Handling, Aerial & Reflexes. For my Central Defender search I filtered a minimum of 13 in Positioning, Tackling & Aerial, and so on with the other positions with some key attributes. Now then, let’s have a look at the team and why I picked them. GK - Bastian Lerch (Germany) In goal we have German stopper Bastian Lerch, at 22 years of age this man has years ahead of him as a top goalkeeper. Some of you may look at his page and be put off by the abundance of orange and red stats, but look past those and you can see he has 15 in Handling, Kicking, Reflexes & Decisions along with a 13 in Aerial ability. At 22 years old this lad will no doubt improve with some game time and training and is a decent keeper at Championship/League One level in my opinion. RB: Denis Diekmeier (Germany) Now this lad looks good. Well rounded stats across the board along with green numbers in Pace, Stamina & Crossing means this guy is a very solid Wing Back. I’d go as far as to say this guy could do a decent job at Premiership level. At 28 years old there might still be room for improvement too. A real bargain. LB: Khaled Mesfin (Germany) Now this lad doesn’t look as good as his RB counterpart, but he’s still got more than average attributes in key areas including Stamina (16), Pace (13), Crossing (12) & Dribbling (12). Being 26 this lad is approaching his peak years so you should see some slight improvement after game time and training. CB: Remi Streete (England) This man was around last year as a free agent too, that’s why i was surprised to see him still without a club. He was a lower league tank last year. I had him in one of my lower league saves and Man Utd approached to buy him! He’s got Pace (13), he can Tackle (14) and he can head the ball well (15) along with more than decent mental attributes. This makes him a quality defender and one you should be looking to pick up straight away. CB: Phillip Wollscheid (Germany) Heading back to the German theme I had going on now as we delve into the talents of Phillip Wollscheid. At 29 years old this man is at or near his peak so don’t expect too much growth, but with his attributes you won’t need much. Aerial (18), Tackling (14), Decisions (14), Positioning (16) & Strength (15) make this man a mean Central Defender. He can be a leader at the back too with his more than decent 13 in Leadership. Rock at the back. CM: Didier Ndong (Gabon) The former Sunderland midfielder looks a real steal with his abundance of well rounded attributes. His only let down is his shooting (9) but everything else is well above the 10 mark which makes this man very versatile as he could play a number of midfield roles. Personally I’d make use of his Aggression (15) & Strength (14) by playing him as a BWM. CM: Jan Kirchhoff (Germany) Lining up with him in midfield is another former Sunderland man. Jam Kirchhoff made this list last year, and his history of being injury prone may make this a bad deal, personally I’d take a chance on him and stick him on a low intensity training. He can play anywhere between CB/DM/CM so he’s versatile, and his attributes speak for themselves. RM: Jerome Kiesewetter (American) American winger Kiesewetter’s Pace(15) and Aggression (15) alone should make him stand out, think of him as a very fast tank. You don’t want him running at you on the flanks especially as his arsenal comes equipped with Crossing (12) and Dribbling (12) & Movement (12). You can sign this lad from anywhere in the Vanarama North/South up to the Championship and expect a half decent job from him. Plenty of room to grow too in my opinions as he’s only 25. LM: Sercan Sarerer (Turkey) This former Stuttgart and Fortuna Düsseldorf winger finds himself without a club this season. You should really be looking to pick him up as his fantastic attributes make him a deadly player to have on the flank. Crossing (15), Dribbling (15), Shooting (13), Movement (13) & Pace (15) make this man deadly in any given role. He can play on both wings but I’d personally have him on the left as an Inside Forward to utilise his selfishness! AM: Samir Nasri (France) There was only going to be one man to fill this position, and you need to snap him up quick as by the time the winter update rolls out he’ll be at West Ham who have signed him in real life. Passing (16), Technique (17), Creativity (15) & Movement (16) make him stand out from the crowd as probably this squads best player. The majority of you would probably opt to play him as an Advanced Playmaker, but I believe he’s more well suited to an Attacking Midfield role due to his low teamwork not really allowing him to shine as a pure creator. Whichever role you give him, there’s no doubting that Samir Nasri is a bargain. ST: Lacina Traoré (Ivory Coast) The Target Man is overpowered this year, so why not grab a fantastic one for absolutely free. Traoré has Aerial ability (16), Shooting (15), Movement (13) & Strength (16). The ideal Target man, plus he’s not too shy on Pace (12) which makes him a deadly striker in this years game. The Team: That completes the list. I hope you’ve enjoyed the guide whilst also finding it helpful. If there’s any interest I may pluck this team into the Premiership to see how they get on as a little experiment into their qualities. Credit must go to @Foxy for the header image.

  3. I’ve started a save I’ll post a separate career thread and link it back in the OP on here. I remember using Corie Andrews last year, his pace stands out if I remember correctly?
  4. Thanks so much dude! Much appreciated 😁 I’m glad you enjoyed Cheers Kyle. What a player indeed! 😁

    Two quality seasons from the both of you. @kylieboi88‘s first season may have just netted him the win though! Sorry @Aaron55 😛
  6. Come again? Fantastic attributes. What was his injury record like? If you remember 😂

    I was going to do that. Then I thought it might be a wise idea to see if the formation was allowed. So you know what I did? I messaged Sam before commencing 😛

  9. It’s no secret that I’ve been severely hit by the FMM burnout lately. I’ve been neglecting the game, and most importantly I’ve been neglecting Vibe itself. I’m always thinking of the next long haul challenge that I’ll attempt, which in turn led me to try something a little different. The American Pie Challenge was created by @Ashez and it looks like the perfect challenge to get me back into the swing of things. After reading @1759‘s fantastic attempt I felt like it was the next challenge on my to do list. The Team Any team goes in this challenge so I wanted it to be a little bit personal to the challenge at hand. Logic would say that I’m going to America, and one of the New York Clubs, considering the legendary Don McLean is a New Yorker. I’ve found a much better club and a much more personal touch. I’m heading to Stoke.... What on God’s green earth have Stoke got to do with Don McLean I hear you ask? Well it’s simple Vibe, it’s a family connection. Don McLean’s great great nephew twice removed through marriage only to be put back in before being removed again is none other than Stoke City’s ugliest ever creation.... James McClean!! A fitting way to honour the great Don McLean by using an immediate family member if I do say so myself. Next Time: American Trio player reveal, along with ins and outs and all pre season fixtures to boot! Thats it for the opening post Vibe, I will be conducting monthly updates to drag this on as long as freaking possible! 😛

    Yeah I played it this morning too. I enjoyed it but as you say, it’s a bit childish. I like childish, but it was slightly too childish. I’d get it, but at a sale price. I’d no way pay the £40+ price tag it’ll be released at. It was beautifully made though! The world in the demo looked stunning

  16. August Here we go then. Our first month of this season should prove to be entertaining enough as we have 7 games to dive into, including a Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa. Matchday One: Leeds United (A) A tough match to kick things off as we visit Elland road to take on Leeds. It proved to be a drab affair as we struggled to take our chances, Terrence Boyd gave us the lead on 65 minutes but it was cancelled out by a Stuart Dallas equaliser for the home side. 1-1 the final score as we open our league campaign with a draw. Matchday Two: Brentford (H) Our first home match of the season was an entertaining one as we put Brentford to the sword by a score of 3-2. Haji Wright and Andrew Wooten were both on the scoresheet as we take the 3 points. Matchday Three: Preston North End (A) Wright wasted no time in this match as he opened the scoring in the first minute. A Boyd hatrick was to follow as we destroy the home side 5-1. Matchday Four: Wigan Athletic (H) We make it three on the bounce as Boyd nets again along with the superb James McClean either side of a Will Grigg equaliser. 2-1 it finishes as we lose Mame Diouf to injury. Matchday Five: Hull City (H) Once again we waste no time in taking the lead. Verlinden this time netting in the opening minute and a Haji Wright brave was to follow as we comfortably win 3-0. Carabao Cup Second Round: Aston Villa (H) A sell out crowd came to what promised to be a close run affair. After a goalless first half the game came to life after the hour mark as on loan striker Benik Afobe gave us the lead and that was swiftly followed by a towering header from young CB Harry Souttar to send us through to the third round by a score line of 2-0 Matchday Six: West Brom (A) Our fine early season form continued at the Hawthorns as our American trio bag a goal apiece in a 3-2 thriller. Fixtures: League Table: A fantastic first month at the club sees us top of the league and with a 6 point lead heading into September. The target is to now hopefully stay there and never look back. Player Attributes: Some very decent improvement here, especially from Boyd, and he now looks a real quality striker at this level. Player Stats: 13 Goals scored between our Yank trio is a solid enough start, more of this please. Score: Games Played - 7 Goals Scored - 13 Total - (13/7) = 1.86 Early days right now, but I’m happy with the progress, as the season gets on the players should naturally improve.

    Just felt forced 😂 the no random battles thing is not my cup of tea. Maybe I didn’t give it enough time though. I’ll poribably give it another bash at some point. Doubt I’d pay for the full game though. It’s a remake of a game I’ve played a few dozen times. Looks beautiful but the Go! Side of things isn’t my scene.
