I'm not sure where this should be posted as i am new to the forum so please excuse that.

I've always never been able to keep to a save as i always seem to get bored so i've decided to be Arsenal but sell all the players in the first team and the reserves apart from maybe Wilshere and Santi Cazorla and bring in brand new players to keep the interest going. Maybe i could use this thread to show my progress (if i do manage to keep it going).

However i'm not a pro when it comes to FM so going to ask for some help:

.When starting a save, whats the main things i should do straight away?
.What sought of scouts and coaches should i bring in?
.Also, i seem to be buying the same old players and not sure on what good players to bring in, any help?

Thanks :)

First thing I do is release all the rubbish staff (Which is usually most of them), then I create my tactics so I have the most time possible to get familiarity with them. Then I decide who to sell/what positions to buy for.

Check out my guide: http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/foot...unning-glory-~-my-guide-managing-arsenal.html (That was for the first patch though, you do now have Monreal! :D)

Coach wise, you just need to bring in top quality coaches for each area (Aim for 4 star minimum in 1 training category, but try to get at least 4.5 if not 5 star!)
Scout wise you want one scout that has high knowledge of England and a high tactical knowledge rating, then set him to scout next opponent. Other than that, you just want scouts that have high adaptability, determination, judging ability and judging potential. Having a few that are foreign are good too, especially countries that create good regens (E.g. Brazil, Argentina)

What formation do you plan on playing? That will effect who you need to buy. And advise you want, I will do my best to try and give you it :D, so just quote me or PM me :) (Or post in the guide, I don't mind which :))

Thanks for replying

Oh okay, well i plan to sell pretty much everyone haha. I normally like playing 4231 but i'm not the greatest at tactics as i have never played for a long period before and i know you need 3 tactics for a season but not sure on how to differentiate them. :/

Thanks, i'll have a look around now mate :)

Thanks for the help with the coaches, i look forward to searching around for the right people.
