I want to play a Schalke game now!

I also ended up selling Balanta because of his error proneness. It was never reflected in the average ratings, but he made some very poor errors over the years and I felt like it was time to give some younger players a chance.

I'm convinced that Max Meyer will be great for you if you start giving him games. He made it to Real Madrid in my save with some very good attributes, yet you could also clearly see that he didn't develop as much as he could have; Schalke kept him on the bench until he was like 23-24 and then sold him. With that said, Draxler is a star do not sell him ever. At the very least if I was you I'd probably look to cash in on Sam to make room for Meyer (and Gotze depending on what you do with him).

I personally wouldn't go for all of those DLPs because of what I have seen in my save of Goretzka, but I guess if he's not working out for you there's not much you can do. Ginter is a total star, he also went to Madrid in my save, but he's going to end up as a Madrid legend, not a guy who had a cup of coffee in Madrid and then went elsewhere.

Yeah, Juventino's save almost makes me wanna get the game and play a Germany save. I forget, though, if you fixed the fake.inc file, could you manage Germany?

Juventino's FM storytelling always makes me wanna play FM, but I don't quite have the dedication for it.

Yes, of course.

I sold Sidney Sam and Lewis Holtby to make room for Mario Götze and Max Meyer. Sidney Sam was on all my squads, replacing Farfan at the start of the game (I made it my first priority to get rid of Farfan). He was very disappointing, Clemens easily won the battle for the starting right winger/inside forward position. Sam had some good games here and there, mostly in the meaningless DFB-Pokal, so I won't miss him. Holtby was also a little disappointing in his one and only season with me as a rotation option. He was signed for a small sum after flopping at Spurs and Liverpool, so it's not a big deal.



The GK situation could become a little tricky in the morale management department, there are no takers for Leno at the moment.

You're right, Nim, Kovacic is a luxury signing. I also really like Goretzka, he's a beast in the making. Like Meyer, I wouldn't consider selling him. It's a little unfortunate he spent most of last season recovering from an injury, just when I signed Badelj to compete with him. It's hard to see Badelj leave the starting XI now, dude played a big part in a CL-winning campaign. We'll see how it pans out. I may be overcompensating in the DLP-department because I didn't like the original Schalke midfield of Jones-Neustädter.

Now, I played until August 1st to round up my 2016-2017 roster, but I kinda lost my motivation to play another season in the Bundesliga. Three-peating the Bundesliga and winning the CL went very fast, maybe too fast. I'm not tired of Bundesliga. IMO it's the most interesting and fun league to play considering the domestic talent, facilities and financial health of most clubs, but I'd like a new challenge.

I'm sad FM10 doesn't work on my computer anymore (Mac OSX Lion), otherwise I'd give that story another chapter.

Oh! I made my Football Manager travelling map (from memory, I might be forgetting a few games).



Europe was impossible to do entirely on this map, so a pin requires a 10 season minimum. The rest of the continents are a one season minimum. Cuba's FC Holguin, Mexico's Xolos (they started being good IRL after Walter White btw) and North Korea's (oh wait) Luch-Energiya Vladivistok are FM Succession Games. I should probably pin down Chelmsford and Lübeck aswell.

A travelling map fits the theme of this thread, so I may think of some continental/location related challenges. I've always wanted a Scandinavian Superteam for example. Gives a new dynamic to the game anyway.

New Chelmsford Panini cards, featuring one of Chelmsford's premier landmarks: the Iron Bridge. I made these a while ago but forgot to post them.

Played another season with Schalke, my fourth. After my three-peat, Bayern finally managed to take the Bundesliga crown... on goal difference. That was a little sour. Bayern were cruising until February and it was entirely characteristic of them to drop an insane amount of points in the final months of the season. That's pretty much how I won the three-peat. I got close, closer... but this year it wasn't enough. The climax of the Bundesliga is always insane, I even remember that from my games in the Bundesliga in CM03/04.



Schalke were also the defending champs in the Champions League, but I didn't get past Arsenal in the 1/8 final.

This is what my team looks like for the 2017-2018 season:



Before the transfer window closed in 2016, I sold my 2015-2016 CL winning season MVP Sigurdsson to Manchester United. I simply prefered going with Götze, who is a better player. Unfortunately, Draxler and Götze both suffered several month-long injuries during the season, which did force me to rely on depth. Kovacic filled in for Götze at AMC and did a remarkable job. During the 2016-2017 season I also signed Christoph Kramer to further my team of Bundesliga's best.

Aleksandar Mitrovic had a break-out 2016-2017 season, he finished as Bundesliga top scorer with 20 goals. I finally found the striker I was looking for. In previous seasons my attacking midfielders were usually my top goalscorers.

For the new season, I integrated several youth academy prospects. Schalke's youth intake is pretty insane, I think the best I've ever seen on a team I manage. Tobias Holzer is the best prospect for an eventual key player role:



He's currently under the guidance of Lars Bender. I have faith Lars will provide him with a good example.

Of the arrived talents, I'm starting to get disappointed with Max Meyer. Granted, over the years he had to compete with (among others) Sigurdsson, Götze and Kovacic. Compared to Schalke prodigy Draxler, who is a mainstay in the starting XI, Meyer just doesn't cut it for a starting spot. I may consider selling him (and it will probably bite me in the ass, but that makes the game interesting, haha).

Did some research for a new quirky save and found out about the gem that is the Gibraltar Premier League. All clubs in the league play in Victoria Stadium on Winston Churchill Avenue, right off an airport runway.



Imagine that scene. They won't let Sergio Ramos take penalties in the stadium, that's for sure. Potential aviation disasters. Ideal traveling arrangements for away teams, naturally.

The Lincoln Red Imps are currently owning the league with 11 consecutive championships.



This save won't happen, but I thought it'd be fun to share.

There is one for FM14 available on Steam, but I only just found that out.
