The British Steel Challenge

http://i.imgur.com/ifVYeDY.png

It's been a while since I previous posted a proper long-term career on here since my "Building a Nation: Northern Ireland" abruptly came to an end due to laptop issues which unfortunately couldn't be addressed - which was a shame as I was 22 seasons into the career which had everything domestically possible - relegation's, promotions, title wins, cup wins, heartbreak, drama and some talented players (for Irish League standards) on show but I've decided I want to try and conquer the British Steel, a challenge I believe only @Gendo has managed to succeed in.

There's just a few rules which I need to abide by:
  • Only use British and Irish players
  • Must start with Sunday League Reputation
  • You may start at a club or start unemployed, your choice

http://i.imgur.com/dhjBiKA.jpg

I have decided to load up all the leagues and divisions within the United Kingdom and Ireland on an advanced database which basically means all non-playable clubs have at least a few players in their first team squad and just like the norm with most of my careers, I will be starting unemployed with the reputation of a Sunday League footballer as per the rules and I'll also be starting with zero coaching badges as I feel it's more 'realistic' to build up from having nothing. The estimated game speed is four stars which is excellent and there's an estimated thirty three thousand six hundred and twenty available to choose from.

http://i.imgur.com/QleMy9X.jpg

Unfortunately there's not a tons of jobs available from the get go and it looks like I'll be beginning this career in Northern Ireland as it seems to be the more realistic opportunity as I'd get laughed at if I even considered applying for the jobs at English League One side Port Vale and the Scottish Premiership duo Kilmarnock and giants Rangers. I'm not one hundred percent sure whether I'd be able to get the job at English National League North side Worcester but I may take a nosey at their squad and media prediction before deciding whether to apply or not - the likelihood would be to begin in Northern Ireland as theirs three vacancies available - one at Championship side Loughgall and two at Premier Intermediate League sides Dundela and Newry City.

http://i.imgur.com/SPNaWec.jpg

And lastly, this is how my managerial page looks one day one and there isn't much to look at but I'm sure that'll change soon enough once I get some managerial experience under my belt. I'm twenty nine years old who is Northern Irish and part Irish who was born in Dundonald (east Belfast) and I've got a very poor reputation but that'll change I'm sure once I'm on the map. I've gone with the 4231 as my preferred formation although it's not set in stone that'll be used while my secondary formation is like a 433 wide although I'm undecided on whether I'd drop one of the central midfielders to a more defensive - it's all down to who I manage.

Playable Competitions:

England
Fa Trophy, Vanarama National North/South, Vanarama National, EFL Trophy,Sky Bet League Two, Sky Bet League One,Sky Bet Championship, League Cup, Community Shield, FA Cup, Premiership

Scotland
Challenge Cup, League Two, League One, Championship, League Cup, Scottish Cup, Premiership

Ireland

Northern Ireland
Mid-Ulster Cup, Steel & Son's Cup, Intermediate Cup, County Antrim Shield, Premier Intermediate League, Championship 1, League Cup, Irish Cup, Premiership

Wales
League Cup, FAW Cup, Premiership

Once a competition has been won it'll be marked off - like this

não consigo atualizar o jogo nem as logos metallic, alguem pode me ajudar? nem se for só no jogo pelo menos!

Please make sure you post in English.

I'm considering giving this another crack (career will be posted in careers section) and I'm determined to become one of the few to conquer it.

Won 2-0 last night at home to Norway - first half goals from Jamie Ward and Conor Washington.

Yeovil.

How the hell do you fail to win when you're 3-0 up away from home with just a few minutes remaining?
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Moved to the careers section.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
I quite liked the Q&A @DNZY, a nice touch. Keep this up though fella.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Solid start to the campaign @Rick87. KIU.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Going by the league table alone, it's great to see Huddersfield getting hammered but my thoughts go out to Hogg and hope he makes a speedy recovery.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Good to see you're back in the careers section @Rick87. Best of luck with this.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Cheers @Obtuse.

This was another one I had been looking at from Argos but again, I'm not hundred percent.

It's more expensive than a hard disk drive for the space you're getting but it makes everything so much faster really.



I've also been taking a little nosey at this one as well.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif

No I don't think so - how important is SSD for FM?
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Sorry to bump an old thread but I was eventually contemplating getting this before Football Manager 2018 comes out? How well will it run with all the facepacks, logos, kits etc and with a few leagues running & is the price "too good to be true"? I think the price is quite the steal.

The current laptop I have isn't the quickest for FM (half a star ffs with usually one league loaded) and runs quite slow.

They had another one which was £459 (16GB, 1TB) but I missed out on it.

Yes I'm well aware it's Windows 8, should I be looking for a Windows 10 or it doesn't matter too much?

Following the end of my career "Building a Nation: Northern Ireland" due to my old laptop packing in I decided to take a well deserved break from Football Manager 2017 but I've decided (after a week away) to return and begin a brand new career which'll hopefully see me over until Football Manager 2018 is released in around October/November. As my hours have been cut in work, I'll be doing the updates on a month to month basis.

Rangers Football Club: Bringing European Success To Ibrox

http://i.imgur.com/A0AqMMg.png
http://i.imgur.com/dEBW6Fd.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/DgnOSjf.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/KgZ75lq.png

For the first time since Football Manager 2015 (I believe) I've decided to try and have a long-term career with the Scottish side Rangers in an attempt to not just make them a dominate force in Scottish Football but the main point is to try and get them to win the UEFA Champions League or even the Europa League, which although I'm well aware will be tough, but I've done it previously.

The last time I managed Rangers I done the "impossible" and guided the Ibrox outfit from not just the bottom playable tier of Scottish Football but to 10 consecutive Scottish Premiership crowns.


http://i.imgur.com/7Z16P6K.jpg

I've decided to load up eight leagues but the Brazilian, English, French, German, Greek, Portuguese and Spanish leagues are on "view-only" so I can keep an eye on how teams are doing in the respective leagues. The only playable league is the Scottish divisions from League Two to the Premiership but I've no interest in departing Rangers and the career will end if I get sacked.

http://i.imgur.com/NRuDRDO.jpg

Once again I'll be playing as "Shedender" a twenty nine year old up and coming manager who will be looking to make it big at the Glasgow giants. I've got Bangor as my favourite football club while I am Northern Irish and born in Dundonald. I've got no coaching badges thus far and have a past playing experience of a Sunday League Footballer, hence why my stats are rubbish.

http://i.imgur.com/554FigP.jpg

Here's the current club information screen and the pressure's on me from the get go as the Gers board are predicting the club to finish in second position which isn't going to be easy. The club have excellent training facilities and great youth facilities as well. They play their home games at the 50,817 all-seater Ibrox Stadium and they're a professional club.

http://i.imgur.com/O1IlaRs.jpg

And the last piece of information is that I've already agreed to go on my first coaching course since becoming Rangers manager and I'm looking to secure my National C Licence which has cost six hundred pounds to spend and will take approx. four months of study to complete it.

I'm not surprised at how well you've began the season @Dan.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Surreal ending. Fair fucks to Barcelona for turning that around after a shocking first leg performance.

Dortmund's also turned their game around tonight (granted they were only a goal behind) as they beat Benfica 4-0 at home.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
The tie was done and dusted at half time @Dan but congrats nonetheless pal. Shite final stats wise though.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
So glad Bellew won as no one had given him a hope in hell in beating Haye, regardless of how it was.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
They said the back-to-back trips to Brighton and Huddersfield could've been a "stumbling block", we've won both games. Excellent stuff.

Can we make it a "hat trick" on Tuesday night and get maximum points @ Reading?
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Why did you bother to go to that game? Surely it was never going to be a contest and a simple Ulster win yeah?

Already had the ticket sorted a week or so previously so ideally felt I 'needed' to go. It finished 19-7 in Ulster's favor but it was a dreadful game in dreadful conditions.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
I'll be in Australia this time 2 weeks.

Can't wait!! Have a few things booked when there, like rugby league and football match, will be class to catch up with my family and mates.

Also the weather is going to be nice and sunny, so that's a plus!!

Have fun pal.

So I decided to head to the Ulster/Treviso match tonight and wish I didn't. I'm pissing drenched.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
It seems you won't be winning the league this season @Dan which'll be a shame but I'm still optimistic you can sneak over the line.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
It's nice to see you're being made to work for the league title @Dan.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Huge win last night at Brighton and nice to see Ayoze Perez get on the scoresheet but the team need full concentration for another massive game on Saturday at Huddersfield.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Leicester's 2-0 up at half time. Man, Ranieri must be feeling cheesed off right now.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Would choose Faroe Islands personally @DNZY but Kosovo seems a good shout too as theirs more options currently available.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
2-0 down at home to Bristol City inside the opening 21 minutes ffs.
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
Glad to see you've decided to try and go full English as it'll be a challenge to find players from time to time @Dan, superb Community Shield victory, even if it was undeserved. Are you still using @VP.'s tactic?
http://i.imgur.com/dGGwCsz.gif
The main question needs to be @Dan; are you still enjoying the save or are you becoming bored due to recent success? I would like to see you make an entire English (or even British) side and see if you can continue to dominate domestically and potentially in Europe as well.
