    Haven't made a great deal of progress. Into November 2022. Almost no fixtures and it took me a bit to realize that is because of the 2022 World Cup.

    We are still near the top of the table and qualified from a fairly tough group in the Champions League. I don't expect us to hold out and we will probably fall behind City and Liverpool again later in the season. They are just so fucking loaded with talent.

    Sergio Gomez, the Greek newgen and Kenneh are all developing into monsters. Kana too. they form a nice core of the squad, but I imagine big clubs will be coming in for them soon.

    Finished out 2022. Took longer than it should have as I decided to watch a bunch of the World cup matches. Not in full, but on Extended Highlights. Rather enjoyed it. Cameroon took out Brazi in SF and England beat Germany on pens in the other. England downed Cameroon 2-1 in the Final. My monster box-to-box Noah Kenneh started a few matches, including the final.

    I have some big clubs sniffing around Jonathan David, the Canadian winger/striker who is doing quite well. Apparently the deal would be worth 105m. I would take that in a heartbeat, even thought its hella fun having a Canadian who is closing in on world class status. His pace makes him effective but he's not a great all-around striker. That's the one thing my side still needs - a top-level goal-scorer. David isn't and Berenton isn't. have a couple of kids I have hope for but no one is a certainty.

    Anyone know of any good timeline mods? Like in TEW you can get a 2009 mod or something, is there any for FM? I know there's a 2006-07 one which is cool, but is there any more?

    There are always some kicking about, but they vary heavily in quality. I would start on the GDS site to see if there any, then check some popular fan sites like FM Scout and sortitoutsi.

    So did a Sunderland game, 1st season got them out of League One and won the Checkatrade too.

    2nd season nothing dramatic, was down to avoid relegation and finished comfortably mid table.

    3rd season, didn't have a massive transfer budget, asked the board to sign someone who was only slightly over my budget, they refused so i resigned and then when i checked, they actually signed the guy anyway. Got the Reading job but somehow managed to delete the save so will be starting all over again with someone different.


    I do enjoy the released lists at the end of the season, picked up some decent players like Danny Simpson and Luke Garbutt for nothing.

    Gotta love when boards are dick, Mikk.

    And dead-right on those released lists. Honestly, if you are a lower-Prem or Championship club and have some patience, you can absolutely build a squad just poaching from the big clubs in England. They start out with so many good young players, and so many will get no time, and then get pushed out by wonderkids that the club sign, and its a never-ending cycle. Of course, its probably more fun to sign and develop your own wonderkids. But its a real source of talent you can tap. And get them for free on cut-rate transfer listings.

    In my Blackburn save, I got Sergio Gomez and Joao Pedro for free. Gomez was out of contract at Dortmund (but I've seen him TL'd for like 3.5 to 5m. in other saves) and Pedro was still under contract but Watford were accepting bid of 0 for him. Weird.

    Finished out the fourth season with a title win and kinda done with the save. More just dont with managing in the Prem. I just don't enjoy it as much as other leagues. We won the title but barely topped the table. I didn't realize how tight it was until the last couple of matches - we were constantly 2nd or 3rd but always had a match or three in hand. Have same amazing wonderkids but can't say I have a burning need to see them develop.

    Think its back to Brazil. Its weird how what I want in a save swings. The first time I did a Mineiro save on FM20, I only did the first season because we found success quickly and I was eyeballing great wonderkids and newgens from elsewhere that I couldn't land in Brazil. I could get them in Blackburn, and I did. But now I want something more restricted again.
