yeah sometimes it feels like the game decides it's time for your team to start losing Try using converatios/team meetings to boost players' morale, then a "no pressure" teamtalk could be useful. Also don't understimate the importance of PPMs especially for strikers: "places shots" and "likes to round keeper" often mean better chances of scoring.Soooo frustrated right now. Started off the 2nd season doing very well and scoring ~3 per, but suddenly my team forgot how to score for the past 4 months. Barely holding 3rd on the table and can't get a win anywhere. My key poacher was injured in a casual friendly over the holiday break and is out for the season. My star poacher last season now has a SOT % of 28% (I don't even know how it's possible to be that bad). I have never seen such poor, wasteful finishing, not even from an 8th level english team I took to the premiership in FM 11.
Typical game as of late:

well you are definitely making progress as a club despite a pretty average season, financial stability and stadium expansion in 2nd season are a great achievement. I can almost guarantee I'll be in red (I'd say about 2M euros) for the first two seasonsOk so 2nd season completed, was not as fun as the first as you can tell by the standings.

But at least I managed a safe spot in the league as well as ensuring the club can continue to progress. I wont show my seasons transfers as there was no one I brought in who actually starred, we scrapped through on collective mediocrity!
I'm gonna try my hardest this season to get some quality into the squad, I've been sitting beneath my Weekly salary cap so I havent been putting the club into debt, which is good. Stadium Expansion by 1000 seats to which means more money yay! Although I would of preferred a Youth upgrade but they kept telling me no money . I'll Keep you all posted
Yeah I dont understand why the stadium expansion is going ahead, because for me I was I think -200000 in the red at the end of season 2, not bad compared to 2mil but still was confusing, they cut my wage budget by a third for this coming season though.well you are definitely making progress as a club despite a pretty average season, financial stability and stadium expansion in 2nd season are a great achievement.

Congratulations for back to back promotions, the Great Escape achievement is completed so you'll be the fist to enter San Marino Hall of Fame. I'll add now to OPSan Marino
Serie C2/A - 2011/12
First season, all went well. As always quite an easy league and had won it with 6 games to go.

Serie C1/B - 2012/13
Second season was a bit tougher but thanks to a good signing (see below) I clinched a playoff place on the final day. I then subsequently beat the teams convincingly and got promoted! It was great!

Juri Biordi. My new Sammarinese hopeful. Rated as being a good CB for Serie B teams I have high hopes for him!

One of my key, key players. He has 17 pace and in the lower leagues he destroys the other teams' defence. Scored 30 goals in 31 appearances, he made my season.

And a couple of great signings helped out. Had to sign the first one because of his performances in Fm11! And the second is a surprisingly good scout!

Anyway I am into my third season in Serie B and all is going well. I am in 13th with 30 points with 18 games gone and came extremely close to getting another one of Kanderrson's acheivements with a 2-1 penalty loss to Bologna in the Cup who are Serie A. But have come across a crash dump that keeps happening on the 2nd January every time so have to sort that out before I can continue.
On my current save I'm not in control of the NT, although when I played game on my old save I lost 2-0 to Bosnia.How is everyones NT doing if you're controlling them? I only played two games with them so far and just lost to South Africa after having a goal disallowed and then an 87th minute winner for them and then went all out attack against Holland for a laugh and narrowly missed out on victory by only a mere 10 goals.
not too sure what you're getting at but, some people start with the club, others start with the club and the NT. To start as both you must add a manager to the club, add a manager to the NT and you can manage them like that, and eventually leave the NT and apply for the NT job with your club manager.The more i read this thread the more it lookds like a great challenge to take on.. i'm ofin the patior challenge at the min but am currently 2nd in my firest season so i dont expect that to last long. i like the different approaches to the way this is done, do you lay out your cash on new players or invest in stuff and hope to avoid the drop. Might give this a go over the xmas break, just ahve to make sure the san marino job is avialable. Do you guys start with national and club manager jobs? or work your wy up to offered the national job? just wondering if you start with a second guy as national manage surely its be to call all your sanmariese young player up regardless of the hamemring they'll get just for the experience and PA improvement? then when that guys gets canned your club rep is growing? if that makes sense.
