Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

Going down after a 3 year stay in the top flight, I probably needed this to completely revamp the tactic.



Team is almost all homegrown. However, lost one of my better regen because of a low relegation clause

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

Club in financial peril, thanks to my attempt to get us to the Championship in the first half of the season. Finances were so bad in January I had to sell off players just to make it through the year without being horribly in debt and risking administration.

Good news is, our first half was good enough that we still managed to get the League One title with two games in hand.



EDIT:

No one asked, but I've actually really enjoyed doing training set-ups for the team, it's been an interesting experience, and balancing everything has been a surprisingly delightful chore. That all said, with promotion I wanted to have a longer pre-season, and that wasn't possible so I decided to do some very intense pre-season training. I'm excited for the team to hate me by the 1st game.

Note, I haven't looked at any training guides, or really sought out any help in this regard, so I'm most likely not optimizing it, but I'll worry about that when my job security is threatened.

I just downloaded a ball pack from sortitoutsi. Iíll give my reviews in a bit after I play a few games.

I can definitely tell the difference on the pitch with the ball, as small as a difference as it might seem.

How does everyone have their backroom set up in regards to coaches?

You/AssMan/Fitness/Coach/GK. Im still struggling to find the right balance here at Watford.

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

Can someone with more knowledge than I have, give me some insight as to why I'm expected to start losing money?


I don't know why they think I'm going to be losing money? Transfer business is on point...just sent Kolasinac to China for £35M--to join Elneny lol.


In two seasons in charge, I have revamped the squad and spent a net of £12M! Here is my "A" team...

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

The projection never includes outgoing transfer money, nor does it take into consideration "extra money"


Most of the time the projection is worthless for clubs that are also using operational debt.

This is easily the worst team I've ever managed in FM. The things I've seen...mother of god...
