Yeah, send me the second one also. Seems like a good challenge. Anyway, just too update you all. Haven't continued with my Oxford or Sutton utd seasons and have deleted both. Just don't really like playing with them and with Oxford you seem to win around 4 something a game. Well you always get four goals at least.

Got two seasons going and both are in the Prem, one with Man Utd which i haven't continued since the last time i posted and a new one with Tottenham. All the transfers etc.. are the same as they are the now except i forgot to transfer Luka Modric . Hes now at AC Milan

I've only spent 8.5m out of the 20m they gave me for saying top half finish as my team is really good enough and didn't need much work. Brought in Samba from Blackburn for 1.5m as backup really as i believe he is better than Dawson, Appiah on a free transfer and he has been a machine for me, Also brought in Fellaini for 2.5m and Sotiris Ninis for 4.3m .

So far i am sitting 6th in the EPL with 8 games played, 5 games won, 1 draw and 2 defeats. Unbeaten at home in all competitions and didn't concede in the first 5 games until i met City .

LOL there is no way you got Samba for 1.5 surely, considering Blackburn rejected a 10.5 offer from Lyon for him on my game.

btw, Everton are leading Man Utd by 5 points in the EPL in my Inter game, a refreshing change to seeing Liverpool winning it, which is just laughable.

Default Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**

That first one seems kinda popular so i'll go ahead and post it in here, taken from another forum.

Basic Information

- You will be the manager of London United. The club has maximum reputation. It also boasts of state-of-the-art training and youth facilities.

- The minimum expectation of the board is to challenge for the Premier League title and to reach the finals of the 3 cup competitions - Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup.

- You are given a budget of £100M to build your team. This is the maximum amount you are allowed to spend in the first season. The wage budget is set at 500K/week. You will be given a healthy bank balance to avoid going into debt. Please note: You are NOT allowed to change your transfer budget to give yourself more money to spend and also even though your wage budget will be more when you start the game, you're not allowed to exceed the above limit.

- Your assistant manager will be Dennis Bergkamp who will be very good from the start of the game so you will not have a problem there. Please note: the game will probably create 2 regen staff for you - a physio and a coach. In all probability, they will be rubbish. If you don't want them, you are allowed to use FMM to terminate their contract without paying compensation.

- The stadium is a 55,000 seater. The minimum attendance is 42,000 and the maximum attendance is 65,000. There is an expansion capacity of 15,000 as well.

- At the start of the game, you will have only 2 "real" players in your squad - Giles Barnes and Ben Foster. Since Derby have been deleted from the game, all their other players are available on a free transfer. You are NOT allowed to sign any of them except for DAVID JONES. I include Ben Foster because unfortunately you cant sign him until his injury heals (he always fails the medical). So he'll stay in you reserves until he's fit to play. I include him because he'll come in handy when I explain some of my rules and regulations. Please note: If you decide to sell Ben Foster, 50% of the fee will go to Man Utd

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

Please note: These rules are general rules and will apply for all seasons. Some of them are specific for season 1 only but that will either be mentioned, or it will be obvious as you read it.

1. There should be at least 30 players brought into the team.

2. There should be at least 16 players in the first team squad.

3. There should be at least 5 English players in the first team squad.

4. The squad should largely consist of players of 22 years of age or less. The maximum TOTAL amount paid for any such player is £7.5M. The total amount takes sell on fee into consideration as well. For eg, you are not allowed to buy a player for £7.5M + 10% sell on fee as the value of the transfer is more than £7.5M.

5. You are allowed to purchase 2 players 27 years of age or over each season for your first team squad if you desire. The maximum amount you are allowed to pay for them is £10M for each player. However, you are NOT allowed more than 3 players who are 27 years of age or over at any point in your first-team squad. So in season 2, if you wish to purchase another 2 players who are 27 years of age and over, you will HAVE to sell one of the existing players in your squad of that age.

This does not include tutors (see rule 9).

6. It follows from rule 5 that you are NOT allowed to purchase any player between the ages of 23 and 26. This only pertains to purchases. Obviously, any player bought while aged 22 or less can continue in your squad till desired.

7. No player can be signed whose wages exceed 50K/week. However, any amount of salary can be paid to a current player if offering a contract extension.

8. Rules 4, 5, 6 and 7 do not apply to any English player purchased (for the definition of an English player, please see below). That means, you can purchase an English player for any price, offer him any salary and he can be of any age.

9. You are allowed to sign any number of players for tutoring purposes. These players will be restricted to a maximum of 10 starts per season (5 starts if bought in January). They can be brought on as substitutes as many times as desired though. These players MUST be identified as "tutors" when posting your transfer summary.

10. You are allowed a maximum of 1 loan signing per season of any age. This player should only be used as a backup, in case of injuries or off the bench. That is, he should be the 3rd choice for whatever position you've got him for. If your first 2 choices are both injured or banned, then this loanee can play.. There is no restriction on which player you can loan in.

11. There should be at least 3 players aged 20 or less in every match-day squad of 16 in Season 1. There will be NO exception made in case of injuries. You will have to play a youth player if you neglect to have sufficient cover.

12. There are no restrictions on what league or players you load at the start of the game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


EXCEPTIONS AND ALLOWANCES

I add these to make a few things a little simpler for people. You don't have to take these into account unless you're struggling with some signings.

1. Please refer to Rule No.5. The exception is that you can sign a player who is only 26 at the time of purchasing. However, he should be 27 before the transfer window closes. For e.g, if you buy a 26 year old in the first transfer window, he should turn 27 before or on 31st August. I add this exception because I notice that there are a few players that you can buy who fall under this category. Also, their price might increase if you wait until they hit their 27th birthday.

2. You ARE allowed to sell players in Season 1 as well if you desire. However, keep in mind that the maximum amount you are allowed to spend in Season 1 is £100M and no more. With the extra money you make off player sales, you are allowed to purchase a player for NEXT season. When you negotiate a deal for the player, make sure that in the offer you put the transfer date as "end of season (England)". This purchase must obviously conform to all other rules posted above and below

3. For season 1, you ARE allowed to use Genie Scout or FMM to look up players PA's and look for any regens that might have been created by the game. This is entirely your choice.

4. For season 1, if any of the players you attempt to sign are declined a work permit, you ARE allowed to use FMM to change their second nationality so they can sign for you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


ENGLISH PLAYERS

Due to a confusion in what constitutes an English player, here is the clarification:

- a player is English if he has England as his first nationality and is eligible to play for the England National team. If he has nationality of another country as well, he will be counted as English UNLESS he declares himself for that other country.

- a player is English if he has England as his second nationality AND has also got "declared for England" in his profile.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


RULES AND RESTRICTIONS (SEASON 2 AND BEYOND)

Please note: As stated, these rules apply to season 2 and beyond. They are in addition to the ones posted above

(A) You are only allowed to spend £30M per season to reinforce your squad from season 2 onwards regardless of what budget you are handed. This figure does NOT include any money made from player sales. That is, you can buy new players for £30M + money made from player sales.

(B) Since from season 2 you allowed 7 players on the bench, you must not have ATLEAST 18 players in your first-team squad.

(C) If you sell a current player for a particular amount, then you are allowed to buy another player for the same amount or less as long as his age is within the limits of Rule 4 and Rule 5 above.

(D) If a current player of yours is sold by your chairman (i.e, without your consent), you are allowed a replacement for the amount the player is sold for + 10M more. Please make sure you take a screenshot when the chairman steps in and accepts the offer. You will need to provide it should any user ask for it.

(E) If you're buying a player in a part exchange deal involving a current player of yours, then the value of that deal must not exceed the limits set in Rule 4 and Rule 5. In this case, your current players screen value will be taken into account. For e.g, if you are buying a 27 or over player (say Amauri). Say Palermo demand £11M for him. You negotiate a deal to include a current player of yours whose on-screen value is £3M (say Defour). Now you are allowed to offer Palermo a deal of: Defour (whose value is £3M) + £7M for Amauri. The total of that deal comes to £10M - which is the limit set for a 27 or over player.

(F) Any one of your current players can be converted into a tutor. Say for example you bought a 29 year old in season 1 and are not happy with him or his stats have dropped off. Yet, you want to keep him around for tutoring. You are allowed to do so. However, his first team appearances should then comply with Rule 9. This will player will then NOT be counted as part of the 27 and over first team players.

(G) In season 1 you are required to have AT LEAST 5 English players for your first team squad and the rest can be any nationality. So:
- If you have exactly 5 English players in your first-team squad, you are allowed to sell a maximum of 1 per season.

- If you have between 6-8 English players in your first-team squad, you are allowed to sell a maximum of 2 per season.

- If you have 9 or more English players in your first-team squad, you are allowed to sell a maximum of 4 per season.

- You are allowed to sell a maximum of 3 non-English players from your first-team squad.

- There is no limit on how many reserve/youth players you can sell.

Note: The general rule of at least 5 English players in your first-team squad applies for all seasons.

(H) FREE TRANSFERS (Pre-contract agreements):
- You are allowed as many free signings as you desire of players aged 22 years or less.

- You are allowed a maximum of 3 free signings of players aged 27 years or more. However, this needs to comply with Rule 5 whereby you can have a maximum of only 3 players aged 27 year or more in your first team squad at any point in a season.

- You are allowed as many free signings as you desire for tutoring purposes. Their first team appearances should be in accordance with Rule 9.

- If a player is aged 22 at the time when offering a pre-contract agreement but will turn 23 by the time he joins the club, he will be considered a valid signing.

- If a player is aged 26 at the time when offering a pre-contract agreement but will turn 27 by the time he joins the club, he will be considered a valid signing.

Please note: The free transfers will also need to comply with Rule G (season 2 and beyond) which sets out the maximum number of players you are allowed to sell per season. So make sure you don't buy too make 27 and over players on frees and then are forced to sell a key player who's over 27. The point has been made now so no excuses later!

(I) Every year at least 1 player from the reserves/youth should be promoted to first team action (either first team or rotation). This is NOT compulsory in season 2 however.

(J) In season 2, there should be AT LEAST one English player starting every game played in the year (unless all the ones in the first team squad are injured at the same time!). This figure will go up by 1 every season till season 4 where there will be at least 3 English players starting every game in the season. The 3 English players in the first team rule will apply for all further seasons.

(K) Lastly, from season 2 onwards, the 500K/week wage budget restriction has been removed. This is because you might need to offer some of your key players hefty contracts before they sign on for you. However, you are NOT allowed to go over a wage budget of 1M/week at any point in the game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think that's about all that should be required. I figure this might not be an easy challenge. With a team as young as you will have, it will be very hard to challenge for the title and achieve the other aims of the club. But this will provide a great opportunity to people who're tired of playing with the same players again and again. And it will also encourage developing youngsters by yourself and turning them into wonderkids instead of just buying world-class players all the time. The caps will also make it very tough to buy the same old players like Matias Fernandez, Jeremy Menez, Hugo Lloris etc etc. And I figure this could be a long-term game as well for people who keep re-starting after every 2 seasons because it will take a little time to develop your youngsters into quality players. So give it a go!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are the links to the database:

Link 1: http://files.filefront.com/London+Ut.../fileinfo.html

Link 2: http://www.sendspace.com/file/dpu862


I assume most of you will know what to do. To those who dont:

1. Unzip the files to your "My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/db/London Utd" folder.

2. Start the game and choose the "London United" database.

3. Load as normal.


A couple more points before you start the game:

1. I couldnt manage to arrange the finances properly. The transfer budget is £100M. But the wage budget far exceeds 500K/week. Its the fault of the editor btw, not mine. So anyway, you've got two options here: either use FMM to decrease your wages to 500K/week or leave them as is but you CANNOT exceed the 500K/week limit.

2. When you are asked to select the seasons expectations, you only get two options: title challenge and winner. You HAVE to choose title challenge. You are not allowed to adjust your budget in any way to give yourself more money.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE PLEASE: If I make any additions to the rule henceforth, I will ask one of the mods to post it below all of the above. It will be posted in bold so you shouldn't have any problems looking it up. Keep checking back to the opening post every now and then to see if there's been any addition. I don't expect there to be though. Thanks.

Just finished my second season and have done a treble!

I beat Real Madrid in Spanish Cup 2-1 with Henry scoring both and Sneijder scoring their goal. In the CL final, I beat Chelsea 3-1 with Henry, Ronaldinho and E'too all scoring. I won my season with 79 points and ahead of Atletico by 7 points.

I'm doing that challenge. I take it there's no actual chance of winning the title, and staying up is the actual challenge?
