Hi All,

My first post on this forum and ive found some pretty useful tips for some wonderkids already, but i dont see anyone mentioning about decent staff??

Just wondered if this could be put as a category rather than just in the players section? Might get a few ideas for other FMers too then!

Cheers!

Keeping Staff

Is there a way to stop your staff getting poached? I could see the point if it was a team like Real Madrid,Barca,Milan etc but my best staff take any offers going usually to teams lower in the league than me and a smaller club (im currently Schalke in Germany) or in a lower division ie german league 2 and a couple to the championship, They take up the same position on much lower wages than I was paying them.

Its a pain in the a** changing staff at least twice a season

If you catch the other team making an offer then make the staff you want to keep a new contract. try that to see if that works

This my first post so here goes....

I haven't tried it yet in FM2009 but in FM2008 I used the following as a guide to getting the best backroom staff:

This is what your coach needs to get 7 stars in:

Strength: 18 Fitness

Aerobic: 18 Fitness

Goalkeeping: 18 Goalkeeping

Tactics: 18 Tactical

Defending: 18 Defending and 18 Tactical
or 19 Defending and 14 Tactical
or 20 Defending and 10 Tactical

Ball Control: 18 Technique and 18 Mental
or 19 Technique and 14 Mental
or 20 Technique and 10 Mental

Attacking: 18 Attacking and 18 Tactical
or 19 Attacking and 14 Tactical
or 20 Attacking and 10 Tactical

Shooting: 18 Technique and 18 Attacking
or 19 Technique and 14 Attacking
or 20 Technique and 10 Attacking

Set Pieces: 17 Technique and 39 (mental+attacking)
or 18 Technique and 36 (mental+attacking)
or 19 Technique and 33 (mental+attacking)
or 20 Technique and 30 (mental+attacking)

Hope this helps!!!! Feedback would be great

keeping staff

yeah thx for that. i normally do end up with 7 in all of them definitely if a premiership team but i wasnt sure of the formula for set pieces ive often ended up signing a quality coach but still ended up with 6 instead. So thx for that.

- as for the question about keeping staff just offer them a new contract they wont always accept but normally will especially if its a bit above what theyre on already.

Ive heard theres a coach hax, not tried it myself. It is..

Hire a coach, offer him a deal as *** man repeat

basically there isnt a limit on how many *** managers youve got as long as you promote from within

Actually thx very much for that! I never knew that before n its helped a lot I'm in the championship i jumped ship from Bradford to Middlesbrough after 2 seasons n one promotion. I've just been hiring n firing coaches but boro wouldnt let me have as many coaches as i'd like but since ive now got 3 assistant managers + my coaches I've got enough to have one training each discipline :) I just love having 7 stars! Its a must if I've just splashed out on a load of youngsters. Now I can have my allotted 6 coaches but now also 3 assistants so I can cover all my bases. Cheers gregor!

I've created all of the search filters and uploaded them if you can't be bothered making them yourself. Download Here.

Thanks Lee.

But i used them and they arent that usefull tbh :p

Its easier to do it myself as there are too many filters, plus i need to go to filter myself as it doesnt filter out people who wouldnt want to join you.

When you hire a coach just offer him a job as you assistant instead.
