  1. Football Manager Mobile 2020 will be out on November 19th so not long to wait now for the new game. We will find out new features a week or two before the game is released so probably mid to late October but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start getting hyped now. This thread is for anything you want to discuss regarding the new game so as examples.... Who will you manage first? What potential wonderkids are you excited about? What improvements are you hoping for in the game? Will you buy this years game and if not why not? A few members of Vibe made some suggestions of new features in this article. https://fmmvibe.com/forums/topic/43796-fm-mobile-2020-potential-new-features/

    I think the casino need to loosen up and bit and increase the maximum bet as we are in the big leagues now.

    I am starting a protest movement to demand this save continues for another season if you haven’t gone bankrupt by then.

  5. Football Manager Mobile 2020 will be released on the 19th November and along with the inevitable excitement over potential new features and which players will be worth buying we all need to decide who we will manage in the game. Many of us will instantly takeover as manager of the team we support or one of the big boys that will allow us to splash the cash on wonderkids and superstars. It might be that you are undecided who you want to manage and I have five clubs to suggest that I think would make for fun saves. Bolton Wanderers: English League 1 Founded: 1874 (as Christ Church FC and took the name Bolton Wanderers in 1877) Nickname: The Trotters Honours: 4 times FA Cup winners Stadium: University of Bolton Stadium Capacity: 28,723 Bolton are one of the true traditional English clubs and were a founder member of the Football League back in 1888. Although they have never won a league title they have won 4 FA Cups with the last one coming in 1958 and they have been runner up in the League Cup twice as well. There problems have been well documented in recent years as they have struggled financially due to the impact of relegation from the Premier League in 2012 and mismanagement off the pitch and were saved from possible liquidation a few weeks ago when they were taken over by a consortium of business men. It is yet to be seen how FMM will reflect these financial difficulties but you will start with a small squad as the club was banned from signing players until the final days of the transfer window when they managed to sign 11 players. You will also be handicapped by a points deduction of 12 points at the start of season 1 that the club was given due to unfulfilled fixtures and the financial problems they had. This all adds up to a club which is ripe for saving, rebuilding and getting back to the top of English football. Bolton’s last major trophy came in 1958 as they beat Man Utd 2-0 in the FA Cup final. Union Berlin: German Bundesliga Founded: 1966 Nickname: Die Eisernen (The Iron ones) Honours: East German Cup in 1968 Stadium: Stadion An der Alten Forsterei Capacity: 22,012 In May 2019 Union Berlin became the first club from East Berlin to be promoted to the Bundesliga and only the sixth club from the former East Germany to be promoted to the top flight since German reunification in 1990. The club was never a major force in Eastern German football either with just one cup win to there name and were always in the shadow of there neighbours Dynamo Berlin who were funded by the secret police known as the Stasi. The clubs fans are well known across Germany though for there creative displays in the stadium and the passion with which they support their team. Union Berlin aren’t a wealthy club and they don’t have a squad full of superstars so you will have your work cut out as you guide them in there first ever Bundesliga season. You will have a fraction of the money to spend that clubs like Bayern and Dortmund will have and this will test both your skill to build a squad on a budget but also to get the best out of them tactically. Union Berlin fans celebrate promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time. Kilmarnock: Scottish Premiership Founded:1869 Nickname: Killie Honours: 1 Scottish league title, 3 Scottish FA Cups, 1 Scottish League Cup Stadium: Rugby Park Capacity: 17,889 Kilmarnock are the oldest Professional club in Scotland but that has never lead to consistent success on the pitch. They have one League title to there name in the 1964/5 season and there most recent success was in 2012 when they beat Celtic 1-0 at Hampden Park to lift the League Cup. Last season was considered a real success for Killie as under the leadership of now Scotland manager Steve Clarke they finished 3rd in the league. This finish was secured on the final day of the season as they beat Rangers 2-1 to secure there highest league finish since 1966 and also win a place in the Europa League qualifying stages. The real long term challenge here is to build a team and the club itself to consistently challenge the Auld Firm of Celtic and Rangers and then to go into Europe after that. You have Europa League involvement in the first season which you may consider a hindrance with all the extra games but it could lead to a real adventure if you can get some results. Kilmarnock players celebrate winning the League Cup following a 1-0 win over Celtic in 2012. Weymouth FC: National League South Founded: 1890 Nickname: The Terras Honours: National League South 2005/06 Stadium: Bob Lucas Stadium Capacity: 6,600 I have gone for one of the new additions to the lowest playable league in England as my next pick. Weymouth had a purple patch during the 2000’s as they fought near the top of the Conference and were looking to get promoted to the League. Since those halcyon days they have had financial problems that saw them drop 2 divisions but they are on the way back up now. Weymouth is on the south coast and are over shadowed by there near neighbours Bournemouth and it will take a few years until you can get them to the position of the south coast number 1 team. Road to Glory saves are always popular and what better than to take one of the weakest and newly promoted teams all the way up to the Premier League and European Glory. Weymouth players celebrate scoring against there local rivals Dorchester in the Ridgeway Derby. FC Andorra: Spanish Segunda B Founded: 1942 Nickname: The Tricolour Honours: Catalan Cup 1993/94 Stadium: Estadi Prada de Moles Capacity: 530 The fifth and final team don’t just represent a town or city but an entire country albeit a tiny one. FC Andorra are based in the village of Encamp in the tiny nation of Andorra in the Pyrenees between France and Spain. They have played in the Spanish league system since 1948 and have spent most of that time floating around between the 3rd tier all the way down to the 7th tier. In December 2018 this tiny clubs fortunes changed though when they were bought by the investment company Kosmos which is owned by Barcelona centre back Gerald Pique. They went from a point outside the relegation zone in the 5th tier to winning promotion the same season. They were then able to buy a place in the 3rd tier Segunda B to replace Reus who were relegated for being unable to pay there players. The club understandably has a real Barca feel to it with a few players that have spent time at La Masia and your job will be to get the club up to La Liga and potentially compete with Pique and his teammates at the Nou Camp. FC Andorra’s players celebrate promotion. There you have it then, five clubs that I think could make interesting choices for saves in FMM20. Hopefully you might give one of them a go or perhaps you have some other clubs you are thinking of using. Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.
  6. With the points deduction and a threadbare squad it will be a real challenge managing Bolton. Sounds like you will be busy!!!

    Vibe The Vibe Awards 2019

    It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, the nights are getting longer, and all the shops are starting to get full of Halloween and Christmas shite. That can only mean one thing.....the new FMM will soon be out! It’s also that time when we take a look back at the best (and worst) that the members of Vibe have offered us up this year in the VIBE AWARDS 2019!!! It is tricky to look back over the year and remember everything that has happened but luckily many of you have long memories and I think we had a good crop of nominations which reflect the diversity of members and content that we have on the site. You have all been voting via PM to @samhardy who informs me that it has been a very good turn out this year, the votes have been counted and verified by the UN and the results can be revealed now. Before that though we are going over live to the red carpet to see if Sexy Sue can get any comments from some of the stars of the night. The atmosphere is electric down here on the red carpet as we await the arrival of all this years nominees and in fact I think I can see some branches swaying in the breeze so I will see if I can speak to @Mr Tree. Mr Tree congratulations on your nominations, you have at times be called the Irish Ilex but I think the question all of Vibe would like answered is what variety of Tree actually are you? Mr Tree: Obviously it's a question that I get asked a lot, so it's something I've thought a lot about over the last few seconds. At times, my bees and FMM can leave me swaying side to side, morose like a Weeping Willow. But in general, probably just a good old apple tree - solid, reliable, nothing spectacular but useful... A very thoughtful answer thank you Mr Tree. I can see the immaculate hair of a Mackem coming through the crowds so that must be @samhardy let’s see if I can catch a word with him. Sam! Sam! Thank you for stopping for a quick word Sam. I think what the whole community would like to know is what is your favourite root vegetable? Samhardy: Allium sativum. But Sam that’s garlic and botanically speaking it isn’t a root vegetable as you eat the stem and the bulbs not the roots....Sam.....Sam.....oh he’s walked off. Any way moving on and I think I can smell the ocean which can only mean Ian is here. Good evening @Ian, I was wondering which you prefer Sharks, Dolphins or Whales? Ian: I probably prefer Dolphins as I think of them as being more friendly. The Studio: Well that was some riveting stuff from Sue there with some really probing questions but I think that is all we have time for... CRASH!!! Sue are you ok? BANG!!! Sue?!? Sorry but it’s @Woody he is trying to get the microphone off me!!! Well let him speak then Sue as he must have something important to say. Woody: At last my time to speak! I just wanted to say that if you ever go to Stoke or The Potteries in general you must visit Trentham Gardens but if you fancy a good laugh you can stand outside the bet365! Ok thanks for that Woody 🙄 Let’s get on with the awards then before my mind explodes with all the excitement. Best Career: Sponsored by Justice for Lord Danish’s Cousin Campaign This is always a tightly contested category every year and this was no exception with the winner taking the prize by a single vote from an unlucky Smoggy. This years Best Career goes to @Mr Tree Goal a Mile career which saw him embark on an epic 30 year journey up Britain in his attempt to get from the very south of England all the way up to the north of Scotland. Best Article: Sponsored by Bati’s Reappearing Cream This years game saw a radical overhaul of training which left many people looking to have it explained to them in a way that could help them get the best out of the new feature. Luckily Nucleus provided just such an article and it clearly proved popular as it received 31% of the votes. The best article of 2019 deservedly goes to @Nucleus for his Training and Repositioning Guide. Best Community Event: Sponsored by Ian’s Ace of Base Fanclub We are all a competitive lot here at Vibe and the community events are always a highlight of the year with plenty of good natured banter flying around as we all complete to be top dog. This years winning event received 45% of the vote so it certainly proved to be a popular winner. The best community event of 2019 goes to the Vibe Premier League which was hosted by @samhardy and it’s the second year in a row that event has won the title. Best H2H: Sponsored by DJ Woody’s Record Store We saw a few H2H this year but two clearly caught Vibes imagination more than the others. There was a single vote between the winning H2H and The Draft between @Rob, @Woody and myself but with 50% of the vote this years best H2H was... FC CentreBack a save hosted by myself that saw two teams of 11 Vibers pick a centre back each that I then created a squad out of and tried to win Serie A with. Biggest Fail: Sponsored by Steve McClaren’s Hair Island Holiday Resorts We see plenty of success on Vibe as many members smash out great challenge totals but let’s be honest we all enjoy a fail now and again and we had a few quality ones this year. This years fail category wasn’t close though as the winner took 69% of the votes. The biggest fail 2019 goes to @Nucleus as he knocked himself out of the VPL by failing to read the rules correctly and being deducted nearly half his points for the final weeks challenge. Best Newcomer: Sponsored by the Ghosts of Long Lost Vibers This award goes to the new member who made the most impact on Vibe this year. This was a two horse race as @Ian and @Mr Tree took turns to be in the lead and the award went right down to the final person who voted. This means that we have an unprecedented situation as both @Ian and @Mr Tree received the same number of votes and will this year share the award as best newcomers of 2019! This brings us to the final a category of the night that was voted for by you the Vibe Reading public. To announce the Best Member for 2019 I am going to hand you over to my fellow Mod samhardy. Best Member: Sponsored by Bobby’s Pork Pie Factory Before our musical interlude from undoubtedly Wales' premier band it is down to me to present the main award of the evening. Last time around Fuddled "Foxy" Fox took this comfortably and was the bookies favourite to do so again. This year we had a much closer vote with Ian picking up 5 votes and Rob picking up 6 really showing the top quality on vibe this year however it can be confirmed that with just over 45% of your votes the Gloucestershire Gladiator retains his status as vibe's best member and I'm not sure anyone can begrudge him of that. @Foxy has requested that Mr Karl Robinson comes and collects the award on his behalf. We have one more award to give out but first some live music. Hailing from the musical wilderness’ of South Wales to conquer the world I give you the Manic Street Preachers! The final award of the night is to recognise someone who has achievement something momentous this year that may otherwise have not received the recognition that it deserved in the other categories. 2019 Outstanding Achievement Award On the 3rd of January @samhardy shocked the world when he posted a career thread on the forums but little did we know that this career would achieve something momentous that makes it worthy of an award. The career with Gateshead only lasted two seasons but Sam brought great success by winning an FA Cup and then telling the tale of The Heeds adventure in the Europa League. This all sounds impressive enough but it’s not truly award winning so why have the panel of judges chosen this for such a prestigious award? The answer to that is simple as Sam managed to make a two season career last for 9 whole months worth of posts in the career thread! I think we can all agree that it takes some doing to stretch a career that only took a few hours to play across three quarters of a year worth of posts and I hope you will all join me in applauding this outstanding achievement. Congratulations to everyone who won an award you were all much deserved winners and if you didn’t win one then to be nominated you must be doing something right so keep on going and maybe 2020 will be your year. That brings us to the end of another year on Vibe and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed through the year in making Vibe the entertaining and sometimes very surreal experience that it is.
  11. You didn’t fancy starting in Germany then into Poland before getting enough miles to jump Belarus into Russia and then across Russia into China and finish in the southern most club there? I went for Italy as I think there are more clubs in the game available to manage.

  13. Foxy the Promotion Hunter: Introduction Welcome to what will be my final save on FMM19. At the moment I have 6 promotions on the Neil Warnock Challenge leaderboard which is 2 promotions with Oxford, 1 with Sunderland in the VWC final and then 3 promotions in my Rogue save. That puts me 9 promotions from @Mr Tree at the top of the leaderboard and I doubt I will be challenging that total unless I really get into this save in a big way and I’m very successful. So who will I be managing I hear no one cry! The easiest thing to do would be to take over a Conference North/South team and then bring them up the leagues to the Premier League and then doing that again. Once you get a club up once it is usually pretty easy to keep getting successive promotions but that’s not how I’m going to play this. My plan is to start unemployed and try and get a job for season 1 at whichever club will have me. I will then only spend one season at every club I manage so I have to build a squad to challenge straight away and hit the ground running if I want to get that club promoted. At the end of the season whether I get them promoted or not I will resign and look to get a new job. This save will be exclusively played in England and I have loaded all 6 levels so plenty of clubs to try and get employed by during this save. I only have a local reputation though which may mean I spend the save right down in the lower leagues unless that gets boosted. At the start of the save there is only two jobs available. I’m not sure if Luton or Bradford will look at me with my local rep but it should start a managerial merry go round which will then hopefully lead to a job for me before the season starts. I hope you will follow my journey as I trawl the lower leagues looking for success.
  14. Thanks Smoggy, yes it was nice to bring back a couple of familiar faces.

    If I’m allowed another go I will have... £50 on RED
  16. Congratulations on a great career. I’ve been doing that lately and I have to say it’s very overrated.
  17. The Double Trouble Challenge Introduction Shearer-Sutton, Collymore-Fowler, Owen-Heskey, Yorke-Cole, Henry-Berkamp, Raul-Morientes, Del Piero-Trezuguet or going back even further, the likes of Rush-Dalglish or even further back Puskas-Di Stefano. And of course, more recently, Rooney-Van Persie. These are some of the great strike partnerships in the history of football. These Players feed off each other and strike terror in the hearts of opposition defenders. These Players who more than anything else, put the ball in the net again and again, time after time. The challenge is simple enough, but can you beat it? Objective The objective of this challenge is to have two strikers score a combined total of 1200 goals. As an additional challenge one may attempt to also rack up a combined 600 assists between the pair. Rules The two strikers must both be playing as strikers at all times (Both strikers A and B must be playing in a forward role ~ no advanced playmakers! ~ Trequartistas are fine) You must use a tactic with two strikers at all times. That means no formations with one up top! Both Real Players and Regens are allowed No Unlockables/Cheats can be used No use of the in game editor No reloading to avoid injuries International Goals count, but only those a player scores in game. Also both strikers must be of the same nationality for it to count. Screenshots are required as evidence Leaderboard @fRESH: PSG - Guebbels/Silva: 1844 @Kanegan: Sporting - Haji Wright/Josh Sargent: 1829 goals @Mr Tree: Legia - Zjawinski/Rosolek: 1386 goals @Foxy: Barcelona/Man City - Tyler Fox/ Connor Adams (regens): 1204 goals @1759: Benfica - Jun Se-Jin/Mohamed Bangoura: 1200 goals

    I’ll stick my neck out and potentially get what I’m supposed to do all wrong by having the first bet. Nice and simple to start. £10 on black. and as @samhardy will testify that’s the biggest bet I have ever had! added 0 minutes later Jinx.
  20. Thanks @Markcoad 😀 @Mr Tree I forgot to mention that after I had got rid of him at Kidderminster earlier in the save my path crossed with one of your Goal a Mile hero’s this season.
  21. The Assist Challenge Alright lads this is a rather simple idea/challenge which is based on the goal challenges which are currently popular on Vibe. For this challenge you'll be looking for assists not goals so its the person creating the chances who is important. This is an interesting challenge which can be played along side the 1,000 goal challenge but unlike the 1,000 goal challenge only club assist's will count (due to international ones not being recorded in game). Rules Any League. Any Player. Own formations only. No cheats or unlockables allowed. A career thread for us to follow is advised. Photo evidence is needed. No Myclub or created players Leaderboard @smoggy90: Phil Foden - Real Madrid - 1084 @Joewins: Ryan Gravenbach - Ajax - 859 assists @danovic78: Steven Dunne (regen) - Shangang - 752 assists @Rob: Antonio Zarzana - PSG - 530 @Kanegan: Haji Wright- Sporting -467 assists @mulama: Alexander-Arnold - PSG -435 assists @Kanchelskis1878: Luca Pellegrini - AC Milan - 432 @Ian: Christian Pavón - Juventus - 416 assists @Foxy: Javairo Dilrosun - Barcelona - 358 assists @1759: Romeo Jap Tjong (Regen) - Benfica - 351 assists @Kanegan: Ari Lassiter - LA Galaxy - 338 assists @1759: Thomas Lemar - PSG - 337 assists @Foxy: Jordan Wilton (Regen) - Manchester City - 332 assists @Kanegan: Kangin Lee - Arsenal - 331 assists @smoggy90: Lewis Wing - Middlesbrough 300 assists

    Help FM Touch or FM Mobile

    It’s hard to know but maybe you would be best buying Mobile as you know it is what you enjoy but then picking up Touch when it is on sale so that you can try it out without having to pay full price for it.

    Help FM Touch or FM Mobile

    I think you have answered your own question there. Personally I like the pick up and play nature of Mobile but if it isn’t in depth enough for you then I think you are best off paying that bit extra.
  24. Say it quietly but we all spend a lot of time playing and posting about FMM so I’m not sure any of us are cool!. I’m not aware of Glen Hansard’s work but I like a bit of Elbow.
  25. When I saw Fondop and Mullings on the transfer list I was determined to get them so it was a nice bonus that I got them for free albeit with a 50% sell on clause but that won’t effect me. The home of Yorkshire Tea as well which powers many of my FMM sessions so it’s a good place in my book. Thanks guys. I had to sell my soul so it was a small price to pay for a the photo. It is a beauty tbf.
