  1. I've been a long term watcher of this community and wanted to have a go at a career story myself! This is my first attempt so feedback and advice is greatly appreciated. Redknapp Returns... BREAKING NEWS!! "Former Tottenham and Portsmouth Manager Harry Redknapp has had his contact terminated with the Jordan National side. According to Sky Sources, Redknapp is considering a move back to England with a former club side. Redknapp is due to meet with representatives in the coming days". - Jim White - Sky Sports News. What club will Harry Redknapp return to?
  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. The Bradley Wiggins Challenge Thanks to @danovic78 for coming up with this brilliant career idea. For anyone who hasn't seen the original post, here's a link: So without further ado, let's get on with the challenge! The League The first stop of our journey takes us to the Pro League in Belgium, a country I've never played in before. Famous for chocolates and waffles, and being the birthplace of Audrey Hepburn and Dr Evil (no, really!), it should be a fascinating trial to take on the small nation's best. There's only the League and cup to fight for this season, and it looks like we'll have to go into a second season to retain the Belgian super cup as we're not in it this season. The Team At the start of this career, I found out two things I'd never known before: 1) Wiggo is from Belgium! Who knew?! I thought he was the most British athlete out there 2) Gent's team is actually of a decent standard. You'll note that I've called them Gent there. Weirdly, the team seems to change names in the game between KAA Gent and AA Gent. The K stands for Koninklijke (you already knew that didn't you?), which is Royal in English. I think I'd want to be known as Royal all the time. Anyway, as I said, the team is of a decent standard. The board did have some pretty high expectations... ...but a young squad with plenty of potential gives me hope. I've even heard of a few of their players, including this young winger: Transfers I've brought in a bunch of free transfers and loan deals to pad out the squad. There were funds available to spend a bit of money, and I'm not making this challenge any harder by only getting freebies, but I couldn't see anyone on my budget that would significantly strengthen the squad. And Finally... It only occurred to me after I'd passed the transfer window but surely there's a way to make this even more about the cycling legend Sir Bradley Wiggins... I doubt you could afford buying them both in your first season, but maybe some sort of squad editor could be done...? Anyway, I'll wrap that up there. I'm already halfway through the first season so will post an update again soon.
  4. Hi guys, It's time for a new career. I haven't done anything like this before so I have absolutely no clue how I'm going to make it, and if at all. For all I know I could fail miserably but it's something that's been on my mind for a long time and now the time has finally come to give it my best shot. Enough scoring with forwards. Enough assisting with midfielders. It's time for a Defender to shine and be the hero in one of my careers. The idea is simple, the rest nothing but. It's a challenge created by our friend @Ashez Thanks mate, see full details in the spoiler: There you have it. I'm going to attempt scoring 250+ goals with a defender whilst playing him as a Center Back only!! I feel this could be a looong career but I'll be delighted if I even come anywhere near Ronald Koeman's amazing record of 253 goals. I hope with your help, support and encouragement I manage to do the impossible and help the chosen player to become one of the highest, if not the highest goal-scoring defender of all time. Country: Portugal League: Primeira Liga Club: S.L. Benfica Defender: Riechedly Bazoer Player Role: Ball Playing Defender Formation: ? Engine: OME Progress Wish me luck!
  5. The Winding Road to 1K After finishing my H2H with Ash and realising that I enjoyed it, there wasn't much doubt in my mind to take advantage of this purple patch of FMM and jump into another save. There were several ideas in mind but the one outstanding was the legendary 1K challenge that my relationship with in the past has been fairly strained to say the least, I've never completed it and only attempted it twice, the first of which ended in me not touching the game again for about 12 months. This year I'm determined to break the duck and get it completed, but instead of one of the more popular 1K countries of choice I decided to choose arguably the toughest country to complete the challenge in, England. Since there have been hundreds of these about in the past and with one of the reasons for my negative relationship with this challenge being losing interest, I came up with an idea which will make this one of the more unique and interesting versions of this challenge to play. It's easy to get your chosen striker settled in an environment with the right players supporting him constantly throughout. Adding to the squad you have each year to make it almost unbeatable and having those players you know for a fact will assist your chosen striker all day long. This will not be the case in this save! For the first season a particular theme will be set for the squad to be built around the chosen striker (e.g English only players) Once the season is up, all the players except the striker (obviously ) will be sold and the squad will be completely rebuilt with players matching a different theme. Example: For the first season English only players, second season only players 23 or younger allowed. The chosen striker will need to reach 1000 goals with his teammates changing every season. Evidently this challenge will require a massive transfer budget, and that combined with European football in the first season meant there was only really one club to choose for this challenge. (Yes, I'm using their old badge, the new one looks terrible ) This challenge will get tougher as it goes along so I felt it was crucial to use a trusted striker who is certain to get goals. It's also important to get off to a good start so the chosen striker needs to be in the goals straight away. When searching the site I was surprised to see nobody had used him this year especially considering his recent rise to stardom, and yes, I'm fully aware he's switching sides of Manchester. Marcus Rashford is the man for the job! This is not all as when coming up with this challenge I was reminded of another idea I once had (Which I'm sure @Ashez will tell you about ) which was to break a certain amount of long-standing records that stand in the Premier League. By the end of this save Manchester City will hold all of the below records: (In game of course, who is Pep Guardiola anyway?) Most consecutive title wins - Manchester United (3) Biggest title winning margin - Manchester United 99/00 (18 points) Most wins in a season - Chelsea 04/05 (29) Most consecutive wins - Arsenal 2002 (14) Longest unbeaten run - Arsenal 03/04 (49) Most goals in a season - Chelsea 09/10 (103) Fewest goals conceded in a season - Chelsea 03/04 (15) Best goal difference in a season - Chelsea 09/10 (+71) Most points in a season - Chelsea 04/05 (95) Biggest Win - Manchester United v Ipswich 1995 (9-0) And that kind of wraps things up. In short this save will hopefully entail Rashford breaking 1000 goals with the squad around him being completely reshaped every season, whilst also trying to break all the records with Manchester City. It'll be difficult to come up with what could be 15ish themes so I'll be looking for suggestions in the comments! Obviously Brexit and work permits will be an issue and since you need to actually gain the no work permits unlockable in the save to be allowed to use it, the theme for the first season will be only players 30 years and over. This way I will be able to bring in players who need work permits and get the unlockable nailed down early. I think that covers everything so thank you for reading and hopefully you enjoy the ride Sam Completed Seasons Season 1 - Players Over 30 Season 2 - No players from Europe Season 3 - British players only Season 4 - Transfer listed players Season 5 - Aged 23 or under
  6. Blue Moon Rising

    Hi guys, and welcome to Blue Moon Rising - a career where I will be using Birmingham City! Why Brum? - Well, with Villa in the same division this season with them and Wolves, there's going to be a lot of pitched battles with rivals! Also it'll be fun to use a club that's pretty much just been through ownership hell(no thanks to those hucksters Yeung and Pavlakis!) and try to build something good! Objectives: EDIT: With the new season, new objectives come in! 1. Avoid relegation from the Prem. 2. Manage to reach at least the Quarterfinal in one of the Cups! 3. Lower the average age of the squad to around 24-25(WIP) 4. Reach at least the Europa League Group Stage 5. Construct a relatively young staff roll of Gold staff members(WIP) Updates will be quarterly and be posted in a bit!
  7. Twenty-five Dolphins

    Humans perceive dolphins to be friendly and amenable. Twenty-five dolphins charging at a human as though said human were a fish, however... Despite being home to some of the biggest names in Italian football, Pescara have been something of a minnow in calcio. The team's best showing in Serie A came in the 1987-88 season, where they avoided relegation by one point. Needless to say they have been relegated in every other season and 2016-17 looks to be a continuation of this infamous tradition. Before Valentine's Day 2017, The Dolphins mustered a total of one victory, awarded to them after their opponents Sassuolo fielded an illegal player. While things have gotten somewhat better since then, avoiding relegation is still a massive challenge for the team from Abruzzo. The Career I will attempt to turn Pescara into a global powerhouse, which is the most generic of generic goals. This however will be done with a twist. I will build my team in accordance to Serie A squad rules, which have not been coded into FMM17. The rules are as follows: Squad cap of 25 (Players aged 22 and above) Of these, 4 must be association-trained (Attached to any Italian club for a minimum of 3 years before turning 21) Another 4 must be club trained (Attached to Pescara for a minimum of 3 years before turning 21) Only 2 non-EU nationals allowed. No non-EU nationals can be signed on loan. They must be contracted to the club for at least 3 years. No poaching of non-EU youth. (Osimhen etc) The Team Association-trained professionals (min. 4) Nicola Leali (Juventus) Francesco Zampano (Entella) Cristiano Biraghi (INTER) Michele Fornasier (Sampdoria) Simone Pepe (Roma) Ledian Memushaj (Sarzanese) Valerio Verre (Roma) Luca Forte (Varese) Alessandro Crescenzi (Roma) Paolo Faragò (Novara) Bryan Cristante (loan) (Milan) Gianluca Caprari (loan) (Roma) Club-trained professionals (min. 4) Davide Vitturini Lorenzo Paolucci Marco Perrotta Francesco Karkalis Gaston Brugman Ransford Selasi (loaned out) - will count to the tally from 2017-18 onwards Others Hugo Campagnaro (EU National, secondary nation Italy) Ahmed Benali (EU National, secondary nation England) Felipe Avenatti (EU National, secondary nation Spain) Callum Paterson (Scotland) Norbert Gyomber (loan) (Slovakia) Alexandru Mitrita (Romania) Ricardo Barros (Portugal) Alessandro Micai (Italy) * * According to Wikipedia, Micai was unable to finish his apprenticeship at Mantova as the club dissolved. The Tactic Next up: First Waves
  8. Intro After the disasterpiece that was my deletion of my FC United save I have decided to just go for it and have a pop at the 1k without Brazil this year. The Team I wanted to pick a reasonably easy league so I went for Portugal, and the team? Good old benfica of course. With a decent squad and some very good youngsters there was no question of the team choice. The Player After a quick survey of the team I decided to use a player already in the squad. It's pretty obvious from my challenge title who that is. Zé Gomez (I really hope that is a pic of him) Now his starting stats are nothing too special bit he is 17 and at Benfica so I'm sure he has a ton of potential. Fingers crossed for me and young master Gomes please guys.
  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. I will be taking on the 1000 goals challenge with none other than our Saviour, Gabriel Jesus. If the Lord can't complete the challenge, we are all damned... (I highly doubt that I will get anywhere near 1000 goals, as it is quite a monumental task, but I will give it my best go nonetheless.) Each season, I will set goal targets in order to reach the ultimate target of 1000 goals. Unless we have a stonking season, Jesus must NEVER fall short of his promises or failure will overcome us. The first season's target is 55 goals.
  11. 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.
  12. Will be trying out 1000 goal challenge with my favorite cub Benfica as I couldn't do it with any other club. I know the squad, and the league, so it should be fairly easy to get this world class team working for my selected forward. The player: I had two choices for my main player, both Portuguese but both different types of players: Ze Gomes A 17 year old Poacher with limited stats but with loads of space for improvement. Goncalo Guedes An 19 year old inside forward that can also play as upfront ,that has good stats and can improve very quickly. I ended up deciding on Ze Gomes, taking on the challenge of building him up and also from @BatiGoals suggestion. This would mean that the first two seasons he will not score as many goals, as he is not yet a world class player, but I have the time to build my squad and tactic to his benefit. I have already done a few seasons with this, which I will be posting shortly..
  13. Premier League? What Premier League? What is this? Another career from myself? What is happening to the Rashford career? I'm sure are some of the questions that are currently going through your mind and to answer the latter, nothing at all is happening to the Rashford career. It will continue as normal, and fantastic progress is being made in that particular save. Yes, that's right, along with that and the Challenge Cup I've been indulging in another long term save that I'm about to share with you. It's definitely been a busy last month for me in terms of FMM Originally I didn't intend to post this and just played it as my personal save but it seemed pointless after all the work put into it to not share it with anyone. So, without further ado: What is the aim of this save? This is an ancient challenge on vibe that never really got much attention. I started it a couple of times but it never really materialised. It was created by Patrick all the way back in 2011 and I honestly believe it's the toughest team related challenge to have never been officially attempted on the site. Here's a link to the challenge thread: In short, the aim of this challenge is simple. To ensure all 20 teams starting in the Premier League are out of it by the end of the game without managing any of them. If this doesn't happen, then I aim to get as many of the starting PL clubs out of it as possible. I've already completed the first season of this so you don't have to wait for the first update. Enjoy Season One The first big decision came before even starting the save. Which club to start at? I had a look at all the Championship squads, and after coming to the conclusion that one of Norwich/Newcastle always get promoted anyway, to look elsewhere. Then I stumbled across the Fulham squad. A squad of players that suited my tactics perfectly. A squad full of exciting young players. The decision was made. Transfers Season Review The Squad Tactics The Premier League Manager Profile Original Premier League Teams I hope you enjoyed the first season of this unique adventure and that it has ignited your interest
  14. 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...........
  15. 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!
  16. CORK CITY CAREER basically, i have decided to take over my local side of Cork City. Included here is a bit of club background. As you can see, in the Europa League, but not gonna get anywhere. I need some help. I cannot sign many players. I have included my budgets, best players and how thin my squad is... Im going to try to only sign irish internationals or young players in this career. Some of my aims are; Become Irish National Team Manager, Get CCFC into the Champions League Group Stages Sign an Irish International under 30 with over 25 caps Win at least 2 of my first 4 League Titles. If you have any other suggestions, let me know. Do you guys have any suggestions of youngsters i could get cheap to begin the career? I've just no clue where to start. TThanks in advance, Yours Bravely Battling Relegation, Cian.
  17. Goal Challenge Inception Two For those of you who know what this title means i hope the excitement in running through your veins already, especially as this is going to be bigger and better than anything i've ever even attempted to bring to Vibe in the past! It's no secret that in the last year or two i'd lost my way with FMM with ideas not working out and just generally not enjoying the game, this year however i took a different approach and went back to the basics. I needed to find the game fun again, i needed to refind my mojo and with the help of this community i am back and arguably better than ever! The epic encounter i had verse @samhardy in my first official save of the year really brought back that buzz to be posting, that feeling of knowing i was entertaining you guys really inspired me. I then moved on to just a fun career to play in the Hulk Hogan save to make sure i was enjoying the game again and even your responses to a stupid gimmick save like that proved to me it was time to once again up my game and make a statement. I have a list of four or so challenges which are careers i've always wanted to do but due to various limitations within the game they haven't been possible, then however 2017 came out and one of those ideas became a real possibility, which brings us to today. Now sit back and enjoy as i reveal my big save of 2017, if you thought the original Inception save or even my triple 1kc save from last year were massive, you haven't seen anything yet! What Is Goal Challenge Inception? Goal Challenge Inception is a save i posted way back in 2014 which involved me attempting to complete not one, not two but seven challenges at the same time with five of them being goal challenges! It is by far the biggest career i've ever posted on Vibe and one of the biggest careers Vibe has ever seen in terms of views and fan response, that is not all however as it was also the first Triple Threat attempt completed on Vibe so you can see how much it inspired the community as the Triple Threat is now one of Vibe's premier challenges. The Inception concept has been imitated a number of times since it's debut in 2014 but no one has managed to expand the challenge, until now! Link To Original Challenge What Is Goal Challenge Inception 2 Then? I'm not one to rehash old ideas, if you've followed my work here on Vibe you'll see i've always tried to push myself and the game, i started with the One Thousand Goal Challenge, i doubled that to doing it with two players at the same time and then last year i even tripled it to see three players do it at the same time. I've done it with one striker getting the 1k and another getting 200 to also smash the Double Trouble challenge and during my original Inception save i smashed the Triple Threat, Double Trouble and the One Thousand Goal challenge at the same time. So the question is how do i go bigger? What's the next logical step from Inception? Thank You 2017 You Bug Filled Mess! As FMM goes 2017 won't be a landmark year for the series in terms of tactical or engine enhancements but SI did let one issue slip under the radar into the retail release of the game, for those of you with brains i'm sure you know what i'm referring to. @BatiGoalpaved the way by revealing to Vibe just how broken the EME was when he started using his five striker formation, the second i saw this my eye was caught and i knew my future was going to be bright as long as i could get into the game. Unfortunately i won't be using a formation with five strikers as that can be an idea for 2018 but second on my list of saves i've wanted to play since the original Inception save has been something involving four strikers. It's not an idea i jumped onto right away as the EME isn't the most practical of engines for me to play on due to an ageing device and i knew testing and creating the ideal tactic for a save this big would be an absolute time sink. The FMM God's smiled on me however as when i was working on another project recently i discovered another critical bug within the game, it was a bug that is extremely damaging to the series but it opened the door to me, it showed me instantly why stupid formations were possible and it gave me the information i needed to really jump into testing. Blindly testing formations is a fool's game, knowing why they work is how you go places. With the information in hand i set to work, a week or so of constant tactic testing followed as i messed around with various ideas, theories, concepts and variations until i'd discovered something that could potentially do the job. It is around here where i have to thank Prize as he was fantastic in helping me talk through ideas, without him this wouldn't be happening. Creating this tactic was a frustrating yet fun task as it tested everything i know about the game, it reminded me why i love this series and all the testing i did back on the PSP and during the discovery of my 433 used in the original Inception save. I've done ridiculous testing for only a handful of saves but all have been some of my biggest, my PSP tactic arguably broke the engine, my CR71000 was stupidly broken in 2013 and my current 433 just laughs at the OME. However this four striker tactic is far from a done deal, it's extremely iffy to use, can be temperamental and has a few tricks to getting it working, to be honest with more control i think i could break the EME completely, it has so many flaws it's unreal. It goes without saying really but this tactic will not be seeing a public release. The Actual Challenge Now the background is out the way let's crack on and reveal what this challenge will involve! Challenge One The Fatal Fourway This challenge has been spoken about before but never completed or attempted to my knowledge. It's not an official challenge but one i'll be hoping to achieve during this save, the concept is simply adding an extra player and an extra 500 goals to the Triple Threat Challenge. Challenge: Four strikers to achieve 2000 Goals Challenge Two, Three, Four And Five Four Triple Threats Having four strikers brings so many options and in particular it bring's four sets of three's so we will be attempting four triple threats at the same time! Challenge: Three Strikers to achieve 1500 goals Strikers: 1-2-3 Strikers: 1-2-4 Strikers: 1-3-4 Strikers: 2-3-4 Hopefully i've not missed a combo out there, it got confusing haha. Challenge Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten And Eleven Six Double Troubles You should have seen this one coming! Doubling the strikers means doubling the trouble! Challenge: Two Strikers to achieve 1200 goals Strikers: 1+2 Strikers: 1+3 Strikers: 1+4 Strikers: 2+3 Strikers: 2+4 Strikers: 3+4 Challenge Twelve The 1000 Goal Challenge My favourite challenge also has to have a mention but this one is extremely unlikely hence why i'm not even gunna lie and say i'm attempting four of them haha. This is the ultimate bonus challenge, it's one i doubt i'll push for as the others are more important to me but it's one to keep in mind. Challenge: One striker to achieve 1000 goals. Bonus Challenges I'm Attempting Double Trouble Assist Challenge Assist Challenge Aiming High So my targets are now out in the open, what do you guys think? I'm not trying to fluke anything here and all my targets have been laid out in front of us so you can see what i'm hoping to achieve. Will i achieve all of them? Unlikely, i'd love to say i believe all these are possible but only time will tell, my main aim is to achieve the Fatal Fourway challenge, if i achieve that we should pick up a number of the others along the way. You know me, when i go for something big it's planned out, i don't stumble onto success, i plan it and aim for it so anything i achieve will have been thought about as shown here. I'd rather aim high and fail a few than aim low and fluke extra! Conclusion Unfortunately this took longer than i expected to put together and i've ran out of time, usually i'd hold back until an opening post is finished before posting but i want this concept out there as i'm so excited about it and i'm busy for the next few days! Hopefully you're not too frustrated that the players involved and the club selection has been delayed until a later date but i'll have all the information posted as soon as i can. In the meantime let's turn a negative into a positive as you can try and guess who i will be using in this save! In an attempt to make up for the delay i'll try and make the second part of his OP extra special and in depth. Thank you for viewing, hopefully this save has you as excited about it as i am and i can't wait to hear your views and opinions! Please don't forget to leave a comment.
  18. Let me set the scene: The season is 2024/25. Young manager Ryan Giggs (me!) has swatted away all competition in Wales with an expansive Llandudno side. Despite limited funds as a semi-professional outfit and the restrictions of Brexit (man, I hate Brexit!), his team had racked up an impressive 7 league titles and 7 domestic trophies in the last 8 seasons. Europe, however, has been a different story. Battling through the Champions League qualifiers has been difficult enough, with tricky ties against the likes of Rosenborg in Norway and Astra in Romania a long way to travel for my intrepid part-timers. And that was just to get through to the competition proper. Llandudno had only managed to scrape through to the group stages twice before, and it had not been pretty: But maybe, just maybe this season is going to be different. Qualification was straightforward enough. Sure, Anderlecht managed to beat us in Belgium, but they paid for that with a 5-0 thumping back in North Wales. By now we've gotten fairly used to facing off against teams of the calibre of Qarabag (why are an Azerbaijani team in European club competition?!). Dundalk? Done deal. And so it's time to don our best dinner jackets, as we attend the draw for the group stage. Our opponents: BAYERN MUNICH (5 times winners), MANCHESTER UNITED (3 times winners) and AS MONACO (runners up in 2004). Are you kidding me?! Talk about a group of death. But we can't let that bring us down. Come on boyos, lets grit our teeth and set out to take on these uppity glamour clubs. Aaaaand... we get our asses handed to us. 3 games, 3 defeats and each worse than the last. Try again next season eh? But wait, what's this... Surely only a consolation win though, right? Waaaaiittttt a minute. That's 2 wins in a row. 2 fairly comfortably wins in a row even. 1 game left to play. Away at Bayern Munich. Inspection of the table tells me that Man U have already qualified, but second place is still up for grabs. All Llandudno have to do is win. 1 win. Away at Bayern Munich. Yeah, that's all. We won! Away at Bayern Munich! Ginter missing a penalty was incredible. We got hammered throughout the game but somehow we hung on. Away at Bayern Munich!!! Stay tuned to see which European giant is next to fall victim to these mighty Welsh dragons...
  19. Introduction I have decided to ease my way back into the game and community with a simple career. The plan is to take FC United of Manchester all the way to the Premier league and to win all top level domestic titles and continental titles. So without further ado let's move on to season 1. Season 1 Unfortunately I forgot to take screenshots of my transfers for this season however let's see how the team did regardless. I was hoping for a season 1 promotion though. And we managed it with a 14 point gap too. Now let's see our key contributors for the season. Gilchrist knocked it out of the park on the goal front scoring 40 goals but my main man has to have been Connor McCloskey scoring 23 and assisting 15. Next up is the Vanarama national league and we will be aiming for promotion again to get this career really up and having a run upwards towards MUFC.
  20. Yes that's 3 wins... And 8 (eight) goals all season... Didn't finish bottom though 💪💪💪
  21. I have decided to start my second career as a Jamaican manager at Chelsea quite an easy challenge but I aim to win the premier league and FA Cup I saw Cockers2505 use the 3-1-2-2-2 formation so I decided to try a tweaked version.
  22. Hi Everyone, This will be my first story on the forum and I'm really looking forward to it. I've been a silent watcher of the forum for a longtime now and I think some of the stories/tips you've all came up with are amazing and really encouraged me to document my own journey. I'm a massive fan of Glasgow Rangers and have been a season ticket holder for 10 years. With the last 3/4 years exempt I've always known my club to be successful and the current affairs of the team are unusual to me. I'm here to bring success back to Ibrox and go one step further and make us a success on the european platform also. Attached are my first season results from what I call my 'transitional' phase as I got to grips with how I wanted my team to play their football and put my master plan in place. First season I won the Scottish Cup and finished 2nd in the league which I'm really happy with as Hearts and Aberdeen have great squads in FMM. My aim this season is to qualify for the Euro Cup and win the league. It's not going to be easy but with a few key signings I know we can do it.
  23. Hello, yes take a seat right there, that's it. This post is going to be the birthplace of one of the greatest footballing stories of all time (hopefully!) With their famed Basque system, Athletic Bilbao is the club of my choice. It all starts from here... Rules/Conditions Only player 20 or under allowed to sign Use Academy players as much a possible Create a legacy first update will be hopefully some time this week
  24. 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...
