Btw, How can I put a screenshot here? Thanks


When you're on the screen you want to screenshot in game, press Alt + F9. Then a screenshot will saved in your screenshot folder (My Documents -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2018 -> Screenshots). Go to an image uploading site like https://imgur.com/ and follow the instructions there to upload the screenshot. They will provide you with a "Direct Link" to the image which you should copy and put between [ img ] link here [ /img ] (remove the spaces in the square brackets for it to work).

Hope I've explained that well enough.
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

When I put between "[ img ] link here [ /img ]" (without the spaces in the square brackets), when I post, it only shows the link to the screenshot..

Nevermind, I got it now, I was copying the wrong link, thanks for the help
Yeah you have to be sure to get the right link!

Here's my manager

https://i.imgur.com/YPJYZRQ.jpg
Well, that was a hard challenge for me, specially because the team never paid attention to what I said.
I can't be mad at my team, because they got some runs that put us on a great position. We almost missed the playoff on the last game vs Wolves, we were clearly better and they were in a really bad position. We were winning that last game but at the last minute, Wolves tied the game and my slot to the playoff was at risk. Lucky me that neither Brentford or Aston Villa won their games.

In the FA Cup, we kept the dream alive and beat Crystal Palace at home, but then Watford just played with us and got us eliminated. It was a decent run going to the quarter finals, but Watford definetely played better than us.

https://i.imgur.com/1Zdavi1.png

About the prizes, the only prize that our team got was the top goal scorer, but Grabban missed a lot of 1v1 vs goalkeepers, it wasn't the best striker I used on FM

https://i.imgur.com/iL3pvnk.png

So:

Play-Off loser: 20 points
Quarter Final: 15 points
Top Goal Scorer: 5 points

I think I got 40 points on this Challenge. I'll be waiting for Stop 2
Here is my entry ... rough start, but at the end it worked out really well with 5 sraight wins to secure the playoff spot (Place 5). Won the final at the *very* end when Maja scored in the 120th for the promotion.

Schedule:

Top Scorer:

Me:
https://i.imgur.com/lHLJgOt.jpg

I guess this makes 40 - 45 Points:

Playoff Winner: 30 Points
Fifth Round Cup loss against City: 10 Points
Top Scorer: 5 Points (hopefully, as it is tied with another player)
Lost all Rivalries though ...

Save file: here...

Great challenge, looking forward to the next one

Actually I am quite satisfied with 10 points. That's POSITIVE points so what more can I ask?
https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/35927/susie-on-tour-2018-stop-1-black-car-revival?page=6
We started well with 3 wins in a row, 5x unbeaten before hitting a really poor run of form staying without a win for mor than 3 months...But in the end we stayed 6 points clear of relegation. Transferwise we got rid of 11 players not bringing in a single one. Not that I didn't try but I couldn't raise enough money to be able to bring in players that really strengthened the squad (at least that's what I thought). Same goes for potential loanees. Unfortunately the board wouldn't allow any talk about a senior affiliate. My struggling with the new scouting system didn't help either... So at least I brought in several new coaches, an AssMan (Nando Rafael) and a DoF.

By the way, how do people put screenshots up without the "powered by embedly" thing?

I finished 6th somehow, despite never really playing well and seemingly always on the verge of dressing room revolt. I had to banish Cattermole to U18s before the playoffs as he went public about hating me for some reason.

I make it 20pts for losing in the playoffs, 5pts for FA Cup 4th Round, and 10pts for beating Middlesbrough twice, 35pts overall.
Very hard challenge...thats my best effort.....

Tough challenge to start with! Here's how I got on;

https://i.imgur.com/DR65Q2p.png

F.A Cup I got through to the 4th round and forced a replay with Liverpool after a goalless draw. They then smashed me at Anfield!

https://i.imgur.com/LFSh2MK.png

Very, very tough to turn this Sunderland side around, in which I managed to put together just 5 wins and 3 draws from 19 games in charge. Late on in my stint it looked to be turning around for me, albeit already too late, when we managed back to back wins for only my 2nd time in charge.

https://i.imgur.com/pWDuXEX.png

The few points gained left us still struggling way down in 17th. Absolutely shocking!

So what went wrong then? Well ...

https://i.imgur.com/L3vVFlI.png

https://i.imgur.com/8eGdYTk.png?1

Chairman Ellis Short had me in the office to talk about the fact that I had 'lost' the dressing room, just as we started to pick back up. I couldn't convince him I was the right man for the job, so he resolved the issue by sacking me, 2 games from the end of the season.

Points Scored
League - 17th = 5 points
F.A Cup - 4th Round = 5 points
Sacked = -25 points

Total = -15 points!

Would Like to join please - hell of a lot of work to do in 5 days
Just made it to round 4 of the FA cup 2-1 win reply over QPR
Lost in 4th Round to Brentford in a reply 3-0
Drew with Middlesborugh 3-3
Finished 19th

As i see it fished 18th (5pts)
4th round fa cup (5 pts)

finished with 10 pts not great!!!!

Well like most others have said, that was a hard one. The early wage budget cut doesn't help, the club loses cash so quickly, how they allowed players to go out on loan and not sell them straight away for cash is beyond me.

Here's my profile anyway:

https://i.imgur.com/EcIz58L.jpg

Managed to reach the 5th round of the FA Cup but got my ass handed to me by West Brom. Finished the League in 18th position, did beat Leeds though

Only real player of note I managed to sign was Alexander Isak on loan from Dortmund.

my first time playing fm since fm2012. Gotta say this was a fun challenge, a lot different from how I'd normally play. If this was a long term play I would for sure have sold both ndong and kone to help with the finances.

This team is way too good to be in the championship, the only real weak points are, in my opinion, keeper and strikers.
I had no shot at getting top goal scorer as Grabban got injured already on jan 15 and out the rest of the season.

That should be 65 points I think.

Well, that was tough. Finished 8th in the end.
Points: 10 for finishing 8th, 5 for losing in the FA cup 4th round replay to Barnsley. We didn't beat any rivals, sadly, so I make that 15 points.
EDIT: Lewis Grabban was "Grabban" the goals for me, ending up on 22 and winning the golden boot. That's another 5 points, so in total I got 20 points.

Golden Boot Winner

Observations:
With regards to GKs, Ruiter is a decent distributor, but not a great shot stopper. Steele is absolutely awful; I only used him in the cup and he was shockingly bad.
Lewis Grabban was on fine form, ending up on 22 goals and winning the golden boot.
I only signed one player: Mariappa on loan from Watford after Koné became unsettled, so I sold him.
The finances are very poor indeed, and I was therefore reluctant to bring in players.

For those who are still doing the challenge - it closes at 8pm this Thursday - November 30.
Need to get a move on with this, only played a few games in the season with 3 days left in the challenge! Gonna try and get through a fair bit tonight and then finish it off on Wednesday and Thursday

Very difficult, but managed to get to the 4th round of the FA Cup and beat Leeds (which hurt).

https://imgur.com/a/cIspP

Finished in a very high... 20th place.

FA Cup 4th round exit - 5 points
Beating Leeds - 5 points
Finishing 20th - 5 points.

15 points in total!

Can I have a team that don't all hate me in the next challenge please? And preferably a team that's not so deep in debt!
And I'm done! Don't know how I managed to stay in charge of this team. And I don't think I have ever developed a more profound hatred towards one of my players than I did for Jack Rodwell. All of the players didn't listen to me in general, but he did exactly the opposite of what I asked of him. And when the players started questioning my abilities, guess who lead the group?!? That's right, Rodwell did.
So I finished 18th, that gives me 5 points, but I exited the FA Cup on the 3rd round, so -5 points. That gives me a whopping 0 points.

Hi, I've had a slight problem with Football Manager today- I've reported it on the community.si forums and am waiting for a response; could I have an extension to complete the save as I cannot do it tonight?

https://community.sigames.com/topic/422480-failed-to-find-default-database-to-use/ I'd only need like a couple of days (from the date it is fixed), here's the link to the report

I'm wasn't sure I was gonna make it. But I did, I rushed it and I think it cost me a promotion, but some points are better than none.

UPDATE: FM has started working again (for now!) I'll try to have the save finished by tomorrow if that's OK, I've been unable to play for the whole of today (plus a bit last night) so I'm a little behind schedule!!
