I'm resigning after nearly 6 years with Liverpool and 4 with the England side. I've built something beautiful and I'm finding it hard to let this one go so wondered if anyone wanted to manage in my future save game (around 2027)

The club is Liverpool and i can give you a really detailed Team Report before sending you the savefile.

The club has loads of money, the best players in the world who have all been playing with one another for ages and are really tight. My managerial rep is v high, the club is all about youth and we have a whole generation of world class English talent coming through the ranks (young English goalkeeper potenial is 197, a DC 195pa, and loads more promising youth players.

Average squad age is 22. I have countless screenshots if anyone wants to see anything.
Squad built around a 'winger-free' formation - 4231, 4312 etc... No wingers but lots of talented AMCs and DMCs

Whoever takes over is of course free to do whatever with it, but let me offer my reasons as to why you should be interested in taking over the reigns from me.....

As England manager I have the best young players at Liverpool and so have been training them to be more versatile while also playing them in lots of competitive matches so they have developed very quickly and all these great English players are solid defenders so the future is EXTREMELY promising for England.
Also, the Euros are a couple months away so you won't need to wait long.

95% of players are regens in this game but I know them all intimately and could give you all the info you'd want or need on these players, both my own and players I've been eyeing for a while but couldn't fit them into my team, in case you wish to take the club's tactics in a different direction.

So.... anyone interested? I've never had such a good team OR so many great reasons to continue but I need to stop playing FM12 now so I'm keen to pass this mantle along.

Let me know if you want any specific info or screenshots?

PS. Some degree of cheating/editing was used to get to where I am, but if thats not your thing don't worry because getting a team like this onto a lower wage budget is a challenge in itself.
The fact is with this game, I haven't really bought many players for several seasons so my transfer budget is massive - some fun could most definitely be had lol, but good luck finding better players than the ones who've developed at the club :)

thanks i hope so, i have an Argentine trio who last season made top three in the World Player award!!
Juan Manuel Santunione (30)
Juan Ignacio Toranzo (25)
Ramon Landa (22)

Santunione is like a more advanced Xavi and has won the award 3 years in a row!
Toranzo is ripe and at his peak right now - he is like Iniesta.
Landa is a godsend because he can play the following roles and is technically and physically incredible...
Advandced Playmaker / Supp (AMC)
Trequartista (AMC)
Att Midfielder (AMC)
Defensive Fwd
Target Man
Poacher
Treq (ST)

Also because of developing them and also giving the English players caps nearly all my team love me and so many players in this game have me as their favoured personnel its nuts - even ones I sold or let go.

:) I have several thousand screenshots from this game lol :)

PS. Toranzo has the best bullet throw in the game, and Landa is decent at this too when Toranzo's not playing - lots of attacking chances!!

Sorry if the labels are wrong, ill try to correct them if thats the case

Want more info on a player just ask...


PS. The save file is 0.63Gb so I'll be uploading to Netload for easier downloads and ill put the link here for anyone interested in checking it out.
This was originally a future save i got online so i joined in 2022. I like regens :)
Don't try to add new leagues in without backing up first - this didn't work for me, game wouldn't load. Also my game got really slow with notes so keep the notebook as clean as you can in case its the save and not my machine (top spec PC).
Ill post the file just as soon as i can :)

Here's the save... Rudy Fervelo after 400 games.fm - Speedy Share - upload your files here

Its on Speedyshare cus Netload didnt work for some reason

Let me know what you think, and be sure to check out England's last World Cup performance - no goals conceded til the semis then then 1-0 up with one minute on the clock but we lost cus of the captain making two mistakes in a row -- see my post about it http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2012-discussion/83262-post-your-frustrations-144.html#post1591352

EDIT: Let me know if theres a problem downloading as these hoster sites sometimes have restrictions on file size for downloading, i could try find another one instead.

mate isnt this a save that you can download from ross websters future save. as i downloaded this save and know the players you mention. let me guess ramon landa you bought from lanus. theres also a certain striker marcello lari i think juventus who becomes class. expect santoiune is at Barcelona in my save of this version. just saying dont claim it is your save when you clearly downloaded ross websters future saves.

now now dilakh i made that quite clear. don't just jump into threads making accusations unless you're prepared to put the time in reading the thread through

It is my game because i've been playing for 6 seasons. Due respect for whoever uploaded the save but all they did is holiday then upload, something i've done myself in the past many times its not hard.

And im not offering this save out like its some kind of gift to the FM community - i was ASKING if any one person would perhaps be willing to continue MY game because of what i've built.

Besides its a common future save that lots of people have played before dilakh you are not the first to say this, so its hardly like i'm trying to fool anyone

get over yourself m8

Lol I'm sorry barcelonic, but if a certain degree of cheating/editing was done, then your successes don't really count, do they?

Count for what malhar? Its no competition - look its really quite simple. I'v done no bragging, I've not made any fantastic claims, I just want to pass along my savegame to someone else. Indeed i do use cheats from time to time, and Im glad of it. I get why some people don't like it but I only ever play solo, not network, I don't feel I am supposed to be competing? I made this clear in my opening post and there were still some who were interested in taking over, so what's the problem exactly?

I love playing FM but i hate winning trophies - I cheat enough to increase my rep so i can keep the same manager and jump from club to club - this is how I have been playing for 15 years - do i care how you play the game? Seriously I don't get what all this is about... read my opening post I'm not trying to get praised here or something, so I've got no idea why you're acting like i am ????

If nobody wants this game then fine - Im not offering it because its a future save like Dilakh seemed to think, nor showing it off as a crown of reat achievement on my part - but i don't wanna let it go I wanna pass it on. Would you be happier if i just took it down, or would my untimely death be the only thing that would quiet you savages? Tell you what, have a think and then you can tell me exactly what I'm doing wrong and why - until then anyone who's interested and/or liked the look of the screens please feel free to download and enjoy playing it your way - ask me for any info you want on the players/team etc...

But perhaps you're right because i;m the only one who uses editors nobody's gonna want my savefile? Hmm... I wonder if you know what a 'success' is? Success can come in different cirumstances anyway so you're post wasn't even right, let alone a reasonable, relevant point.

Hmmm...what exactly does "I've built something beautiful" sound like to you, if you look at that sentence objectively? I have no major beef with what you've done. I couldn't care less. It was just absolutely hilarious to me - you go on and on about the beautiful team you've built and the wonderful players and the very low average age of the squad, and the great transfer budget and reputation and what not. And then at the end you mention that you did a certain amount of "cheating/editing". Now first of all, if you admit that you've cheated, then you're a cheater - by your own admission. I found that pretty hilarious. But also, it was like someone going on and on about their beautiful mansion, and their wonderful car, and the amount of restaurants and casinos or whatever they own, and then at the end saying "Oh by the way, did I mention - I did do a certain amount of kidnapping rich people's kids and killing some and robbing a few banks to get to where I am, but don't worry, if that's not your thing, just carry on". Note: not comparing what you did to all that, just explaining the comedic value of your post. I really was laughing out loud. And btw, please be a little less insecure..and like magic, you will sound more rational :D

1) there was nothing mentioned in the OP that this saved game was from another user, the title says it all!
2) cheating is cheating and I can assure you that not 1 person will use this! Success is only valued if done honestly...
3) its quite a cool idea I must say :) I might do this with my West Ham save so people can play on, or maybe if I take a new job in my save (story) then someone can carry on or something like that..

finally, lets just cool it down!

I think Malhar seems to be suggesting a certain level of superiority is important in FM gaming
It is really soo much more simple than he's suggesting...

Every person who buys FM can edit as much as they like and its not cheating because its a single player game and you can't cheat yourself, merely change the rules to make the game more to your liking.

Secondly, I know for a fact that lots of FM players use FMRTE and the like. Clearly they not post around here foten by Malhar's response, which both explained and justified their decision not to.

Lastly & most importantly Malhar seems to have found himself in the wrong section. This isn't the "POST YOUR SUCCESSESS" forum.

What I am offering took me over 500 hours to build, even if i boosted my finances a little - if I'd picked a team with money to begin with would that be cheating too? The save was offered because I want somebody to carry on with it.

Malhar might think its funny that someone can say they use an editor and also take pride in what they've achieved in-game, but he couldn't be more wrong and so I don't much like tourists popping in with a post completely OT.

@ Raikan... two posts before Dilakh's intrusion, check it out because it does say that its a future save i got online. I'm amazed that even you have missed this entirely, so please don't jump in without knowing the facts as you're only confusing the issue.
The point is that Malhar is perfectly entitled to his opinion about anti-editing, anti-cheating, but lots of players play this way - why do you think FMC is being developed? Surely that's cheating?

How someone plays the game is up to them and I reacted the way I did because I don't want anyone downloading the save to have to read this "I'm better than all of you because you cheat" rhetoric from Malhar. If we wanted to be judged because of this we would go to a relevant section of the forum - but I made everything clear and offered a save - that's it!

Malhar -- if there's something specific you want me to say let me know and I'll say it so you can can leave this thread. If you want me to say I cheated then why? I already did before you came into the thread?
I made it clear that some people don't like cheating, but they're still entitled to it if they want.

For two months I'd wake up and play FM for 16 hours. This save is a result of that. If i picked a club with more money to start with then according to Malhar its not possible to truly be worthy of any achievement whatsoever.
He likes to feel himself above others and thats fine, but there are actually sections for this, called "Post Your Successess" - a forum which, for the very reason Malhar is now being a nuisance, I would never consider posting in with a game with which I've edited. Hence why I haven't!!

I've upped the file now but if nobody else wants it maybe I should get this thread deleted so that it doesn't attract more FM supremacists with a mind to go OT and 'site celebs' such as Raikan who, all due respect, should have read my posts a little more carefully before accusing me of being wrong about something which is there for all of us to see!!
(Again Raikan - just check out page 1 near the bottom - two posts before Dilakh entered the thread)

Thanks :)

Yeah, on second thought count me out of this :L

You really should have credited the guy who made this save, and not tried to pass it off as entirely your own "beautiful creation".
There's no point in cheating on FM. If I edited everyone's PA to 200, is it amazing? Nope.. anyone can do it and it's lame.
