I have started a game already and have played it into a few months of the season. I was wondering if it was possible to upload a picture of myself to come up on my profile. Or is that something you have to do at the start or not at all?
Thanks.

if not then just do it in manger profile.

If so create a facepack and write code for the unique identifier.

Step 1
On the FM 2009 Preferences make sure Show Unique ID's is ticked

Step 2
Go to your manager home page and it should have your unique ID at the top.

Step 3
Create a folder called me in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\graphics\

Step 4
Download the attached config.xml file and save it to that folder. Open it in a text editor and change the 2 values shown to your unique id.

Step 5

Create an image of yourself (the game will resize it for you). When finished save the image in the same folder and call the image your unique id (eg: 1394642823.png). The image I used is..

Step 6
Open FM. On Preferences > Display & Sound and untick 'Use Skin Cache' and tick 'Always Reload Skin on Confirm'. Once done press Confirm and it should now work.

Are you sure you have followed those instructions above exactly? If you have it should work.

It shouldn't do as it's basically the same method. Try reloading the skin again.
