  1. Sam v Ash 2 - A Unique Hammering Around 2 years ago at a similar time of year one of the most popular head to heads on vibe came about when @Ashez and myself took on the "Becoming the best in history" challenge in which the aim was to get one player to win the world cup and WPOTY in the same calendar year. After a month of intense competition it finally ended in my favour in extremely controversial circumstances! Link below. http://vibe.community/forums/topic/23986-ash-and-sam-fail-at-becoming-the-best-in-history/ After a few negotiations this rematch was supposed to happen last year however the poor release of FMH16 and various other reasons stopped that from happening. But, now that the bugs have been removed from this year's game, and with the game a few weeks old now there is no better time to get things started now. The idea we settled upon is an extremely interesting one and has a few twists to make it even more unique, and over the next three seasons of what will surely be fierce competition, will Ash get his revenge or will it follow a similar path to last time? In short, this challenge was inspired by Frank Lampard and the simple aim is for an individual player to score a competitive goal against as many oppositions as possible in each season. However it isn't that simple. We will both be selecting two players, one central midfielder and one striker, and a points system will be used to determine who comes out on top. A point will be won for every unique opposition the striker scores against, and two points for every unique opposition the midfielder scores against. Full rules are as follows: League: Premier League Club: West Ham United Challenge Length: 3 Seasons Transfers apart from two needed: Yes Price limit for 2 main Players: £20m - The two selected players cannot cost more than £20M combined. MC at AMC allowed: Yes Midfielder Must Be English: No Duo can't have goals for starting club: Yes. The player cannot have scored a goal in English football before. Goals will count in all competitions apart from friendlies. After every season, the two players need to be replaced with two different players. When discussing which team we wanted to use for this challenge, we decided we wanted to be in the Premier League and the club needed to have European football so there were more possible opponents to score against. We ruled out all the big guns and that left a team with a new stadium and a rather tasty transfer budget in West Ham United. Ash will have his first half-season update up within the coming days and I will follow after that with mine, thank you for reading this and I hope you're looking forward to this match up, and for some of you who were around for the first one, hopefully you're looking forward to the rematch The challenge has been outlined and the battle has begun but who are you backing to win and who are you going to support? Make sure you leave a comment below letting us know which corner you are in!
  2. This is the first time I've attempted a challenge! I've been coming here since... well, I'm not sure, maybe four or five years before the domain name change. I've always been a lurker and I've never tried the challenges, but I'm finally having a go. The Challenge I'm going to try to get Adam Armstrong (from Newcastle) to score 1000 goals at Celtic. This is what he looks like at the start of the game: Why Adam Armstrong? Partly because I'm a Newcastle supporter. Partly because he developed into a beast one game I played. Partly because I wanted someone that no one else is doing. Why Celtic? Partly because they are a strong team in a relatively weak League, which should translate to lots of goals. Partly because I've never managed outside of England (and I've been playing since CM2), so it's time I went abroad! Why not Newcastle? Because Armstrong is on loan at Barnsley at the beginning of the game and I can't recall him! But I can buy him at another club. Also for the reasons I mentioned above. He starts the game with 20 goals to his name that I'll have to subtract later (sad to see the 5 wasted seasons there): Outlook This is going to be tough! He's 19 at the start of the game, so I've lost a few years that might be crucial at the end. I'm not sure what his PA is and I'm a little worried he won't be as good this time around as he was for me previously. The new EME seems more realistic and resistant to miracle formations. Also, I've never done this before so will probably make some rookie mistakes! Offset against that is that I'm hoping Celtic should be able to score a lot of goals. Will it be enough to catch up? Only time will tell. At the moment, my degree of confidence is only about 20%. Season 1 I've already completed the first season as I wanted to make sure I was up for this. I am! And here's what happened. First, to get Armstrong, I had to load England as the primary league and Scotland as a secondary league. He's not in the Newcastle squad otherwise. The Celtic squad seemed quite small - I guess because Scotland was a secondary league. When I joined Celtic, they gave me £2.3M spending money, which was a less than I was expecting and which means it will take longer to shape the squad around Armstrong. Luckily, Newcastle were willing to sell Armstrong to me for £1.8M, so I could buy him right away. My scout didn't think that much of him: But the board seemed to think I was on the right track: In other transfer news, I signed a bunch of free agents to beef up the squad (no one particularly notable) and I sold Moussa Dembélé (there can be only 1 star striker on this squad). I also tried to sell Leigh Griffiths as well, so that there was only one clear cut striker and noone would be upset about being left out. I thought I could use an attacking midfielder who can also play forward as cover. Anyway, I couldn't get a good price for him and as it happens, I ended up being quite glad to have him around as a sub. Formation: For most of the season, I used the 4-2-3-1 formation. I varied the settings between short and direct, flanks and centre all season, so no point screenshotting that. I know the rules for this challenge say that you need to use your own formation and this one is popular on the forums at the moment, but I've been using it on and off for a couple of years. It's definitely not been a miracle formation for me this year. Some good runs and won league comfortably, to be expected as Celtic, but some bad patches too. Training: I'm not following any of the guides for intensive training, but I did turn off Defensive and turn up Fitness to Intensive. At various times, when he was struggling with settling into the team, I changed it so Tactical or Motivational was increased instead of Physical. Not sure if that had any effect, but it seemed worth a try. How it went: He got off to a good start and signaled his intent a few games in with this 5 goal effort: That's what I'm talking about! But not long afterwards, I noticed he was struggling to settle into the team: That lasted the whole season on and off. I didn't do much about it, although I did think about buying some players who spoke Geordie. Worse was to come. Later in the season, I noticed he was feeling the pressure of first team football: Gulp! If you want to make it to 1000, you can't do it coming off the bench lad! We pushed through and luckily he got on board with being the star of the show. He got injured near the end of the season and missed the last 2 games (could have been worse). We won the League and the Cup. He won Player of the Year for the Scottish Premiership (note Del Castillo who was the runner up - he'll be important next year): And I became his favourite person: It's mutual son... He's developing nicely (but has already turned 20!): And here are his stats for the season: Only 53. Not quite a goal a game. Not good enough to make it to 1000, but all things considered a decent start. Hopefully he'll pick up the rate next year...
  3. Hi all I'm back with another career, my first of the new year and have decided to attempt a fantastic challenge by @BatiGoal And now onto season one Transfers A-League (Regular Season) A-League Finals Series FFA Cup The Player Jamie Maclaren What a total! I'm amazed at Jamie's goal total and hopefully he can keep it up. Thanks for reading and comments are appreciated.
  4. Samba Futebol em França So after many false starts with careers on FMM17, mainly to some big bugs effecting my attempts and I now ready to go on my first career with a firm favourite of mine, The Triple Threat Challenge. Although this career does have one huge bug in it was am willing to carry on as I have started quite well and really don't want to start another attempt after seemingly getting things just right. Enough chat, here are the details I initially started in France with an all French front three but after a few seasons it didn't quite work out, not enough goals and the tactic wasn't quite right. After a few tweaks I think it is working well so I just needed the right players to play the system. With a big south american presence at PSG I thought it could be an idea to use them with either Brazil or Argentinian strikers and I settled on Brazil, so here are the main men...

  5. With only a few hours until Football Manager Mobile 2017 is released, I am really liking the new features, and I am really excited for a new year of FMM. And for my first save for the whole FMM/FMH series, I’ve always started with Manchester United, as I like to adapt to the new game by starting with a big team and United just happen to be my favourite team, but this year with our two new leagues, I have decided to change things up and start with a new league, the Polish League. So, the Polish League has some very interesting rules, which make me very excited, and it is now time to pick the team, looking at the league table, I don’t want to start with the top team, so a team who has the chance to win the league but needs to be challenging, not an easy roll through the league, so, I hereby present you: Kolejowy Klub Sportowy Lech Poznań, S.A … Know the team? No? OK, never mind, Lech Poznań, ok? Know the team? OK fine, the team who had Lewandowski when he was in Poland. Actually, I think giving you the logo would be better. Now you know, so, I’m excited to delph into the season and FMM17 in general, so let’s go! Next Post: Target for Lech Poznań Save
  6. Background Info After working as a food technologist for 15 years, I give up my career in the food industry to follow my real passion, Football! Tired of the boring, mundane routine in my normal job and doing it just to provide for my family, I have give up my job and attained my coaching badges to become a professional Football Manager. With my family now relying on me providing for them through football management there is no doubt that this will be a rocky road! Now that I am unemployed and not wishing to up route my family I will be trying to forge my new career in England. In July 2016 I checked the job market for vacancies and found 5 vacancies in the country, 1 with a Championship club, 3 with League One clubs and 1 with a League Two club - Grimsby. I am in desperate need for work and I apply for all of them in the hope that someone will take a gamble on me and see my hunger to succeed! Will I get a job? Will my family go hungry before I secure a job? Will my wife leave me before I can prove to her this might work? A very uncertain future lies ahead...........
  7. I've always wanted to go a career on football manager and document it along the way. I spend a number of hours a day at my desk flicking through careers and challenges on mobile and pc. The ones that grab me are the unique ones. Storied ones. I'm sure it's great double the quadruple with Chelsea. But that's not for me. So the prologue is done. Let's jump in. Chapter 1 to follow.
  8. Hacettepe Spor A journey to greatness! I found myself in a familiar situation, I have come to the end of a save and the lull hits me - where to next? I searched through the two new leagues and stumbled on an absolute gem of a save. The potential is there, they deserve it, they crave it...can I bring them to the summit?? Hacettepe Spor are found in the lowest playable turkish league, their facilities are the best in the league and their potential is evident. I pluck up the courage and apply for the seat of manager, no experience but full of charisma. The chairman whos lost interest in the cause is buoyed over by my aims. He gives me a 12month rolling contract my one aim is to achieve a mid table finish. I secretly believe I can win promotion, but mid table finish is more than achievable. So follow me on my journey! Here goes! The Squad The squad is made up of friends from the surrounding area, some have talent most are near on useless. I decide to put up nearly all the squad for transfer and move many on with free transfers. With the out goings sorted my team is weak in a number of areas. Budget is £75k which is a hefty budget for this league. I decided the free market was the best option and I found a few gems. One to watch, big club experience can only aid me I lost my all my friendly games and started off rough in the league but a change of tactics and the results are improving. Can I make my goals of achieving promotion?
  9. Sevilla Career

    Sevilla FC Part 1 Hi and welcome to my Sevilla save. Sevilla are a side in spain that have always seemed to be a sleeping giant of la liga. With Barcelona and the Madrid clubs dominating the league. Despite their success in the Europa league in recent years, Sevilla fall into a group of teams that never really threaten the status quo at the top of La liga. I intend to change that. I will be following these philosophies in this career. -Youth development -Sign young players -Build and maintain a Spanish spine to the squad Current honurs It has being 70 years since Sevilla last lifted the tittle and it will be my primary goal to end the wait for the trophy. We will also be looking to win or 6th Copa del rey in the near future. As for on the European front Sevilla have being dominant in the Europa League but my goal is to establish Los Rojiblancos as a champions league contender. Domestic La Liga (1): 1945-46 Segunda División (2): 1929, 1933–34, 1968-69, 2000-01 Copa del Rey (5): 1935, 1939, 1947–48, 2006-07, 2009-10 Supercopa de España (1): 2007 European UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1): 1979–80 Europa league (5): 2005-06, 2006-07, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 UEFA Super Cup (1): 2006 Team analysis Having taken a look at some players both in game and in real life I am happy with the base I have.I have picked out 3 of the following players for a closer look I hope will be a big part of this save. Sergio Rico Ww A player who fits everything I want in my team. Young,Spanish and bags of potential. Sergio I hope will be no.1 for years to come as long as he doesn't become a target for the big boys. Joaquín Correa Correa a talented young winger. Who I see playing on the left flank as a inside forward or in the no.10 role. Another player I have high hopes for. Vitolo Vitolo is quiet possibly my best player. With ability to play anywhere in the front 3 of an attacking midfield but will primarily play on the left (depending how Correa develops). Like Rico I expect Vitolo to draw plenty of interest and we will be hoping to keep a hold of this key player. Team report Besides the three I mentioned above, Our team seems to have plenty going forward with having the likes of Lucianno Vietto, Samri Nasri and Matias Kranevitter on loan. We also have the likes of Ganso and Rami in the team. At first look it looks like our first window will be focused on strengthening the middle of the park and defence. Season Objective The board want me to qualify for champions league .Which given the talent on hand shouldn’t be too much of a ask, and considering the minimal difference in the transfer funds to win the tittle. It wasn’t worth the added pressure given that we will need a lot of work to compete with Barcelona and Real Madrid.If it is needed I can review the wage budget and increase our transfer funds to 56million. Transfers In the early stages of this story I have a number of targets I would like to bring in but as of yet there isn't any confirmed deals. more on this in part 2 Pre season/Fixture list A very tricky start to this save with some high quality pre season games. I won't be expecting much from any of the friendlies, as I will be experimenting with plenty of players and tactics. What the above pic doesn't show is the double header with Barcelona in the Spanish super cup which will take place after the European super cup tie against Real Madrid. Both fixtures will be tricky but also a great chance to get some silverware in the cabinet ahead of the season, That also starts at Camo Nou.... That's it for the first upate of this career. I will post in the next day or so with a report on our pre season tour, European and Spanish Super Cup. Be sure to check back and see how we got on. Any suggestions on transfer targets, tactics or suggestions on this post will be appreciated... Thanks for reading....
  10. Curious as to how difficult the 1k challenge is on the new EME, I've decided to make it the focus of my next playthrough! We also have Ben and Ali joining in to see whose wonderkid does best over the course of their careers. We'll be putting sporadic updates in this thread every now and then, bear in mind we'll be quite busy so it may take a while to complete. Feel free to play along with the same teams and see if you can beat our 'high scores'. Would be interesting to see your progress in this thread. SI Challengers Jack - Kasper Dolberg of Ajax Ben - Moussa Dembele of Celtic Aligempf - Ben Woodburn (signed for Besiktas)
  11. I'm back! :-) Just reserving this space for later and I'll throw in the formal introduction (and special thanks) once my test games/tactics are completed. Here's a sneakpeak tho. Cheers! more later...
  12. 500 Goals, 500 Assists, 1 Player After the disappointment of Dembele (somehow?!) missing the cut in 2016 I was itching to manage the latest nailed on Wonderkid superstar. I thought I’d go for the 50-50 as it’s my own challenge and I wanted to try and drum up some interest that might encourage someone else to have a go… I’ve never really managed in Germany before so I’m going straight to the source with Borussia Dortmund. They have a great squad and most of it is made up of German nationals so I know the bulk of my squad will be thoroughly rested after the international breaks. Season 1 to follow...
  13. Hey, I will be posting here my first FMM2017. But I don't know which team to start. It's between Parma, Salford, Galatasaray, Borussia Dortmund,
  14. Four Nations, Four Tittles, Four Champions Leagues Overview My first ever challenge on Vibe and the task is simple: Load Four Nations and win the Top division, Cup in every nation, the Champions League and the World Cup. Rules The rules are simple: win as many trophies as possible. However to make it a challenge, I will begin unemployed with no coaching badges. Obviously the use of in-game editor is banned and I have no unlockables in use. There is no maximum or minimum amount of time I can spend at a club/nation. Loaded Leagues England - Vanarama South/North upwards Spain Germany Turkey I have picked England as the main nation simply because it has most leagues so as an unqualified, unemployed manager it'll be easier to get a job straight away. Spain and Germany's top leagues presents the best Champions League winning opportunity and Turkey is a league that intrigues me. Knowing that there are numerous teams that could win the league and having never managed there on FM or FMM so I thought why not give it a go?! The first "Episode" will be tomorrow so stay tuned! I welcome all/any feedback, comments, suggestions and questions so please post them! Thanks Dan
  15. HELLO TO ALL MY FELLOW VIBERS AND WELCOME TO MY FIRST (OF MANY HOPEFULLY) POST ON FMM17 So to kick things off I've gone straight in with a challenge, one I wanted to start on FMM16 but simply ran out of time As the title suggests this is a Double Trouble (DT) challenge and for those who don't know the aim is to take two strikers and score 1500 goals between them, and since I'm fond of a goal based challenge and have yet to attempt this one I thought why not. Now last years game saw me start an Triple Combo Challenge but I've decided just to do a Double Challenge instead this year removing the converted winger portion as it turns out i SUCK at creating 3 striker formations so we'll stick with a two striker set. However I will also be attempting to get both strikers to complete the Goal a Minute Challenge while hunting for the 1500 goal mark. For Those unaware the Goal a minute requires the striker to score a goal for every minute of play I.E. score a goal in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd ect over X number of seasons, but i will attempt to get both my players to complete this Now without further Ado let us begin our Quest So I already had two players in mind for this challenge after testing a few players last year, I also needed two young strikers of the same nationality incase i can grab the National Managers job, so I went French OH LA LA My chosen Pair is Anthony Martial a great young prospect with bags of speed and excellent dribbling skills and good shooting stats and at only 20 years old gives me plenty of time with him, and his partner M'Baye Niang who I've used in other challenges in the past and is an excellent striker to develop and again his age helps even if his stats aren't as impressive as Martials So I have my chosen players (and after making myself French, in case the national job becomes available) I had to chose my club and looking at my chosen pair there was only one choice I became the new manager at the theatre of dreams, and looking to get Man U back to winning ways (plus there was no way I was going to be able to afford to move Martial on without becoming Barcelona, Real or Bayern) and as any of you who followed me last year know I love playing in the EPL So I have my Club and I have my chosen pair in mind so lets get this show on the Road Season 1 So the big thing in the first season was to chose my tactic and get my squad in order For my Tactic I chose to use my 442 Attacking formation which has always served me well in the past, Here's how it looks So it has stayed the way it always has, the only difference I made was changing the Front two between TM/AF, AF/PCR or TM/PCR to try and get the best out of my Strikers, did it work well keep reading to find out Transfers So after looking at my squad (which helps having Pogba now) I went out to the transfer market and did me some shopping Niang was the first to be added at £20M which is a quarter of what United would have wanted for Martial, then I looked at Ousmane Dembele as a few people where looking forward to using him so I thought I'd give him a shot (and he didn't disappoint) then Klaassen from Ajax to help my midfield and Arnautovic as a good LW/RW option to help Dembele and Depay Schneidelin was the big release (I didn't plan to sell him but offers came in and he wasn't happy about staying so out he went, Rooney was let go (I'm really not a fan) then just players who weren't going to get a look in League So our first aim this year was to bring the EPL crown back to Old Trafford for the Red Devils, so how did we do.... We smashed it reaching the 100 mark in both Goals and points leaving City 16 points behind us and only losing 2 games all season Cups We also had a good chance to bring some silverware back with us We start with a very convincing win over Last years EPL champs Leicester to claim the Community Shield Two of my youngsters combine to clinch the EFL Cup beating Everton 2-0 Another convincing win in the Euro Cup beating A. Madrid 4-1 thanks to a double from Martial But we miss out on the FA cup loosing to Chelsea in the Final thanks to a 92 minute goal from Costa But a good haul winning the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Euro Cup Fixtures Here's our season fixture list A great season all around loosing 3 games all season and all of those came after April and some very convincing wins along the way Season Awards My players claim a few awards this season Niang claims the WPOTY after a belting start to his career at Old Trafford He also clinches the EPL POTY award with Depay coming runner up Martial claims the EPL YPOTY with Rashford coming 2nd so my players doing there bit this year I only manage to come runner up in the EPL MOTY awards but still a great season The French Connection So with awards and league titles in their first season how did our boys do Well Martial would have done better had he not missed almost four months of the season through Injury A big loss but he still did well Some nice improvements in his stats (look at that pace) Martial ends the year with 36 goals to his name (not bad for missing 4 months) How about Niang Some good improvement again from Niang with his passing and shooting stats now in the green Niang Finishes on 43 which isn't bad but considering he played 16 more games and only scored 7 more than Martial is a little concerning but stamina has been an issue also We can only hope for improvement next season Goals 36 Goals 43 Total - 79 So how did they do regarding the Goal a Minute portion of the challenge Martial scored the following minutes 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 15, 16, 19 21, 22, 23, 24 32, 33, 34 42, 43, 44, 50, 52, 54, 59 61 70, 75 85, 90 Niang scored the following minutes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 11, 12, 13, 14 21, 23, 26, 28, 29 33, 35, 36 41, 47, 48 53, 54, 57 61, 64, 65, 67, 68 85, 87 90 Plenty of goals this season with Niang seaming quite eager scoring in all but two of the first 10 minutes and another bonus is that both players scored in the 1st and 90th minutes (Martial even hitting 1 and 90 twice) So now onto season two and hopefully pleanty more goals and plenty more minutes As always thanks for following and Stay Tuned
  16. Hi guys. I am starting a new career in Spain (a league I never tried before) and the muse struck me so I figured I would write about it. But first, a few words about the club I'll be playing. HISTORY: Club Polideportivo Ejido, also known as Poli Ejido, was a football club which was founded in 1969. It was located in the city of El Ejido in the province of Almeria, Andalusia. El Ejido is a small agricultural farm town with a population of less than 100,000 located on the south coast of Spain. After decades of promotions and demotions between the Third Division and Second Division B, Poli Ejido achieved promotion to the Second Division in 2001. They stayed there for seven years, reaching as high as 11th (once in 2007) and 13th (twice - 2003 & 2005). STADIUM: In their second season in the Second Division, the team opened its new stadium - Estadio Municipal Santo Domingo - which was considered a basic requirement to continued survival in the Second Division. This is a multifunctional stadium with a capacity of 7,870. It allows for various football and athletics activities and competitions. The stadium's claim to fame is hosting the Rolling Stones on June 30, 2008 which was attended by more than 50,000 people. DEATH: In 2008, Poli Ejido suffered severe financial difficulties. I couldn't find much information on this as I don't speak Spanish but I'm guessing the club became buried under required payments for the stadium and league fees. The team was relegated to the Second Division B in 2009 and was forced to completely disband on January 9, 2012. RESURRECTION: Shortly after that, whatever was left of the club was resurrected by a local entrepreneur futsal club owner. The new team became known as Club Deportivo El Ejido (aka CD El Ejido) and it had to start its play in a regional Fifth Division League. The team achieved two promotions in two seasons and was placed into Group IX of the Third Division. Two years later, in the 2015-16 season, El Ejido finished fourth in its group earning a spot in the promotion tournament. After winning three home-and-home knock-out series, CD El Ejido achieved promotion to the Second Division B and were placed in Group IV. FUTURE: This is where the club finds itself in FMM17. Poli Ejido's earlier investments into the Santo Domingo Stadium have provided CD El Ejido with the best training and youth facilities of all but one clubs in the Second Division B. 7,870 stadium capacity is also higher than most teams in the division. All this team needs is a savvy manager to guide this team to glory. And this is where I come in. My goal is to put the city of El Ejido on the international map by breaking up the Barcelona/Real Madrid dynasty and to turn CD El Ejido into the best team in Spain, nay - EUROPE! In game terms, CD El Ejido is a hidden gem. The team has IMPRESSIVE training facilities and GOOD youth facilities. This is better or equal to the facilities of eight teams in the La Liga! This also allows me to hire 3 coaches, 2 scouts, and 2 physios. I expect this will make my life a little easier and less frustrating as it will give me a huge advantage in player development. In addition to Spain, I'm going to load the biggest leagues in Europe - England, Germany, Italy. My goal is to win the treble (League, Cup, Champions League). I've dragged out my careers in the past but hopefully recapping it for you here will keep me going at a good pace. I've never played outside of England before. All I know is that my players are almost worse than those found on Vanarama N/S teams and yet there are only two promotions between me and La Liga so I expect this to be a rough climb. Feedback is welcome!
  17. Changing The Landscape of Modern Football Hello, and welcome to my first career on 2017's instalment of the FMM series! If you don't know who I am, my name is Liam and I've been around these parts for a couple years now posting careers which some of you might remember, others maybe not. I usually attempt an Unemployed Challenge, which I have posted in both of the previous two FMM games, however this time I thought I'd go for something a little different and came up with this idea which I think will be interesting for both myself and all of you. I hope you will be looking forward to it as much as I am. Also I'd like to say a little thank you to @Ashez for his help in tweaking and fine tuning this idea to make it as fun as possible for all of us! The Concept Four of the "not so major" leagues available to us in FMM will be loaded and a set of challenges must be completed in each nation throughout the duration of the career. Each nation has TWO main objectives, as well as ONE bonus objective. The bonus objective for each nation will be tougher, maybe impossible, but its fun to try right ? In order for the overall challenge to be considered complete, the main objectives in each nation MUST be completed. The bonus objectives are optional however will make the career that bit more exciting and successful should they be completed! The Rules 1. NO unlockables are allowed throughout the career. 2. MUST start with no coaching badges. The Nations and Objectives Belgium MAIN OBJECTIVES 1. Take a Belgian club to success in Europe, an achievement which has only been managed by one other Belgian club, Anderlecht. Anderlecht won the Europa League way back in 1983. 2. Break the Pro League record for most goals scored by a team in single season, 112. Anderlecht scored 112 goals back in the 1946/47 season. BONUS OBJECTIVE 1. Have a player break the record for most goals in a single season, 40. Albert De Cleyn of KV Mechelen managed 40 goals in the 1945/46 season. Portugal MAIN OBJECTIVES 1. Put an end to the dominance of Portugal by Porto, Benfica and Sporting. Become the first club outside the big 3 to win back-to-back Portuguese League titles. Only two clubs other than Benfica (33), Porto (27) and Sporting (18) have won the Portuguese League. Boavista (2000/01) and Belenenses (1945/46). 2. Break the record for most points accumulated in a single season, 88. Benfica reached 88 points in the 2015/16 season. BONUS OBJECTIVE 1. Break the record for the most consecutive games unbeaten, 56. Benfica managed 56 games unbeaten from 1976 to 1978. Holland MAIN OBJECTIVES 1. Take a Dutch team to Champions League glory for the first time since 1995. Ajax won the UCL back in 1995, their 2nd overall. 2. Break the record for most games won in a row, 19. Back in 1971/1972, Ajax managed 19 consecutive wins. BONUS OBJECTIVE 1. Break the record for the most consecutive clean sheets, 13. PSV managed to shut up shop for 13 games in a row in 2004. Turkey MAIN OBJECTIVES 1. Guide a Turkish team to success in Europe for the first time since 2000. Galatasaray won the Europa League in 2000, beating Arsenal in the final. 2. Break the record for the most league wins by a team in a single season, 29. 29 wins has been managed by two Turkish clubs, Besiktas (1959/60) and Fenerbahce (1988/89). BONUS OBJECTIVE 1. Have a player break the record for the youngest goal scorer, 16 years 107 days. Enes Unal netted for Bursaspor vs Galatasaray in 2013 to set the record. Final Words As I said above, I hope that now you know what the career will entail that you are looking forward to it as much as I am. Some of the objectives will be difficult, no doubt, but then it will just feel better when we complete them . THANK YOU ALL FOR READING AND I WILL SEE YOU ALL SOON.
  18. National team offered

    OMG guys, I jusst can't believe in my eyes O.o at the beginning of 2nd season at Southamton, I got offered by Denmark. Kinda surprise because it seems like people find it very difficult to get there. Finally, my dream came true, not my favourite team but nice start for me.
  19. 4-3-2-1 Wonderkids team It handles 10 seasons with ease :D
  20. Prize presents The French Connection, the first EME insane goal challenges attempt So here we are! The new FMM installment has been out for a few weeks now, the first irritating bugs have been fixed so it’s time to start a career I was pondering what to do, discussed with @Ashez, should I go OME or EME. OME has my hart, but I also know it’s time to move on. After testing a few ideas and looking for tactics It was time to bite the bullet and start cracking on with a EME career. So, without further ado: The Challenges: If you start something new you might as well go banana’s. The challenges for this career are: - The first EME Triple Threat – 1500 goals - 3 Double trouble’s in one -1200 goals per couple - 1KC – 1000 goal for the main striker The Strikers of choice: If you have checked out some of my tactics I recently release I can’t be a big surprise. I went French, they just have an amazing pool of talent that I just couldn’t ignore them. The 1KC candidate: Mr. Martial himself! I love him and I hate him, geez did it take some time to get him scoring during my double trouble in 2015. But just look at those tasty stats! Left Striker: Kingsley “The King” Coman! What a speedy monster, move over Usain Bolt! Right Striker: Ousmane, I can see this lad become my favorite player of FMM 17, he has it all! The Club and League: The lads aren’t cheap, so I needed a club with a big budget, also I need a club with some squad depth cause the tactic I am using burns players out quickly. Besides money the league is a thing too. Portugal is fun for goal scoring challenges but no club can afford them, Brazil immensely popular but not with us anymore so i decide to go to Spain and to my beloved Real Madrid Concluding: I want to thank Ashez for the mental support during the last weeks, I can imagine my moaning bout tactics, the engine etc must have been hard Oh and thanks for letting my steal some great ideas from your Inception challenge! (great read for the ones who don’t know it). I’m prolly mental for even trying to achieve this in one career, but lets have some fun! Always looking forward to your comments, let me know what you think! Cheers PriZe
  21. Hello guys ! This is my first post for FMM2017 ! I really am a beginner so please guide me Okay, im starting off unemployed.

  22. Introduction Having just finished with my back to the future challenge and my Rinus Michel Challenge on an indefinite hiatus (unable to obtain a national team job with on Europe), I decided to look to the challenges posted for FMM17 so far. I also decided not to do a shameless plug by doing my own challenges too. I settled on the "pride of a continent" challenge which I liked the look of due to the squad building aspect. This is the link to the challenge post So for this attempt as you can see I have chosen Africa as my continent. My team? I chose a rich club with minimal African players in league I have not played in before. In all honesty I wanted to make this as easy as possible and I figured PSG wouldn't be a bad start. I do, however, want to win everything available. So that means the French league, both French cups, the french version of the super cup, the Europa League, the champions league, the European super cup and the club World cup. Season 1 We have a big job on our hands building this squad as there is only really one African player in the squad and he's reserve quality at best. So after demoting everyone and selling whoever I could this is who was brought in. So you can see there is a vast range of players. Some were risks and I don't expect them all to work out. I then brought in Mahrez in January after a few big sales. The Season We begin our season by playing in the Trophee des Champions (French super cup) We begin with success, winning 2-1. Great start. Next up is the french league cup of will catch you up at the quarter final stage where we met AS Nancy Lorraine We got through with a close result and went on to the semi-finals to meet that other rich French club AS Monaco. A win on penalties is enough to get us to the final against Lille.  We finally managed to get the win in extra time to claim the league cup. Next up is the French Cup again I will bring you in at the quarter final stage We defeat Nice despite them having the best of the game. This brought us to the semi-finals where we faced La Berichonne (?) a third tier team I believe. They've done well to get this far, time to destroy them! Erm...... hardly a destruction. They outplayed us for the entire first half, I'd go as far as to say they could have won had it not been for the red card. Phew. On to the final to face Nantes. We dominate the game and come out 3-0 winners to claim the cup. So having swept up 3 French cups which is expected for a the big rich PSG team we see how we did in the league. All considered I think this was a poor showing. I'd like to blame this on the fact that I had forgotten about the African cup of nations and had a 6 player squad buy really I can't as this was that period. Whilst I was trashed by Monaco there were only 3 losses in that month. The team and I had a really bad November-December period which contributed to the league failure. Finally we have our champions league run......which was non-existent. We crashed out of the group stage in third place. For whatever reason I just couldn't get the team firing on all cylinders for those games. I'll mark it as a learning experience and try better next time. This did afford us a crack at the Europa League though (I wish it were deliberately done), which is very handy as we need this under our belts to win everything. So how'd it go? Well we got through the early knockouts with some ease then met our first decent team, Roma, in the quarter finals. Leg 1 down we didn't see the better of the game and only managed a home draw. Second leg went decidedly better with a 3-1 win. On to the semi-finals. Our opponents are giants of the game. Manchester United. They take their home leg with a 1-0 win. No away goals for us. Leg 2 goes rather differently as we take down the Red Devils 3-0 and move our way on to the final. We face........ Manchester City. Battle of the budgets! A boring game where we were saved by a reasonably late penalty and we took the cup. Our players didn't do badly either. So a decently successful season leaving 4 things still to win, the champions league, ligue 1, the European super cup and the club World cup. Fingers crossed for next year
  23. Ability/Potential

  24. Episode 0 - Prologue Hi guys!!! The history of Parma Football Club is sadly quite popular... is not the place to summarize the whole story but you can have more datails here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parma_Calcio_1913 After the bankruptcy of March 2015 a group of 8 local businessmen (including Mr. Barilla and Mr. Dallara) re-founded the club, now named Parma Calcio 1913, in July 2015. Achieved promotion from Serie D into professional football league Lega Pro, ending the season with 94 points from 38 games, and an unbeaten run of 28 victories and 10 draws, now is time to come back in Serie A ... well at least in FMM2017 ... I try to do something different here. I want to create a "step by step" career showing in details all my decision, the season problems and my solutions (every update will include more or less 5 games). I don't know well serie C players so i decided to start a couple of test saves and playing on them still november 2016. In the first I haved analyzed my own team and the improvement of my players and in the second i concentrate myself more in finding good players, using my scouts. In the end the result should be a sort of career / guide. So let's begin!!! Soon a first look at the football club and staff. P.s. sorry but my english is terrible... if you find grammatical "horrors" please report to me with a private message and i will fix them.
