Started with Newcastle. Finished 6th, won Europa League and then left the following December whilst in 4th place having signed de Bruyne, Walcott, Hernandez, Milner, Okore, Viktor Fischer.

Joined Inter in dire financial problems. Trying to off-set 60k in wages but all the big-earners (Zanetti, Chivu, Samuel, Stankovic) suddenly decided to retire at the end of the season. Hands tied. So, I'm out looking for freebies to add to squad depth and found El-Hadji Diouf and Ronaldinho - both agreed to paltry wages of 5k p/w.

Yesterday, I helped my friend rediscover his love for the game by helping his Reading team stay in the Premiership. He only had 4 wins out of 30 before I stepped in and won 5 out of the last 8 including one against Chelsea. To be honest, he had a decent team (mid-table quality), but that was probably my greatest achievement in FM. God, I miss FM, even though it's completely broke.

@Jype,My players always shoots from ridiculous range, can i somehow change that?

First you should set each player's individual instructions section 'shoot from range' to rarely, which you might have done already. On it's own that setting won't do you much good but you need encourage your players to play more of a possession game with short passes and the shooting will go down at some point.

What formation do you play and which roles do you have for your players? You should have a couple of wingers or at least very attacking full-backs / wing-backs to offer width at all time, allowing your midfielders another passing option out wide rather than have everyone in the middle close to the opposition players so that the only option is to shoot. Apart from maybe one or two guys you should set your midfielders and wingers to Support duty instead of Attack because it will make your players more willing to play for the team and not just try to be the hero and score on their own all the time. Even with Support Wingers I've had wide players scoring 30 goals a season while still assisting another two dozen so it doesn't really matter what the duties and roles are if the teams is clicking together very well.

Just my two cents, believe me when I tell you I'm no expert. :lol:

Only have the game for one week myself but could it be that you need to change your players instruction to 'long shots = rarely (don't know how english version says it)?

I finished my first seasonb with Chelsea.

Won the Community shield, European supercup and Club World cup.

Lost in Carling cup semi finals against Spurs.

Lost in CL quarters against Arsenal, who won the CL

Finished 4th in the league.

So not a really good first season, still Roman offered me a new contract for 4 years!

Bought Subotic(10,25m€) who went on to named player of the year by the Chelsea fans. Got Defour(6.25m€) and Juventus wanted to swap Giaccherini with Mikel wich i gladly accepted.

Sold Benayoun(800K€) to Atheltico, Malouda(1m€) to Everton and Cahill(11m€) to Juventus.

I play 4-2-3-1 with Cech in goal, Cole - Subotic - Terry - Azpilicueta in defence, Defou and Lamps midfield, Hazard and Chiaccherini on wings, Mata behind and Torres as striker.

For next season i allready sold Marin(9.5m€) to porto and Ivanovic(10m€) to Leverkusen.

Sigborsson(23m€) from Ajax has signed for us, he was topscorer CL with 12 goals last year.

Thanks mate, but Jype was faster :)

I sold Essien(6,5m€) to Galatasaray.

Loaned KDB to Newcastle, Josh to Norwich and Romelu to Everton.

I bought Falcao(50m€) and loaned Pogba.

First game of season at home to Swansea; won 5-1 4x Falcao :cool: and Mata scored.

Wow i must start by saying sorry @Jype but i did not get a notification when u quoted me but i did when Hamilton quoted me and then i did not scroll up so i thought his post was the first after mine....

Anyway now that i switched it to Rarely my Leverkusen team plays really well and there no unnecesarry shots from like 40 yards.

About my formation i play 4 at the back (Offensive left back so Kolarov can bomb forward when my Left Inside forward cuts in, Stayed tuned to figure out who it is but i think you already know :P)

Then i have Bender at CDM and Naingolan and Gonzalo Castro as CM's while i play Sidney Sam and André Schurrle on the wings.

I also have Kiessling as a Lone Target playing Striker (17 goals in 14 matches in my second season so far)

Thank you both guys!

What do you mean by editing? The appearance of the game, the database or what?

The appearance - adding crest, backgrounds, etc...

The appearance - adding crest, backgrounds, etc...

Download what you want from either of these:

http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/downloads.php?do=cat&id=161

or

http://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/category/86/football-manager-2013-graphics

Usually the file you are downloading will have instructions of where to place it, but if you don't know, here's an example.

For instance, if you wanted to get club crests, you would pick out the one you like the look of, download it and extract the file to:

User/My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2013/graphics/logos

If you don't have the folder 'graphics' then you need to create it, and create 'logos' within it and extract the file there. The same procedure if you wanted player faces, download a facepack, create a folder called 'faces' within the graphics folder, then extract there.

Once on the FM start screen, go to Preferences>Interface then 'Clear the Cache'. Should be on the right somewhere, then reload skin. Should be done.

Finally found the FM thread. Played since the 07 series if I remember correctly. Current playing 12 cause I'm on vacation and 13 is on Steam . Started unemployed, joined Oberhausen in the German third Division achieved promotion and moved to Eastleigh in the lowest division in England. Got promoted twice and won the FA trophy twice, and then now moved on to Stoke City and top of the npower championship . :D
