Football Manager 2021

Just looking for opinions for the game - is it better than FM2020, what improvements do you feel have been made for the better/Worse.

Have the interviews gotten better or are they still predictable and boring…

Any videos of matches you have played?


Get the demo and give it a go Mic

I have the demo but no time to play it.

Woot managed to get FM2021 for 24 quid from Brighton’s (footie) website…

Handy having a brother in law work there (ordered on my behalf with discount).

Still after experiences with the game - what you think works well, what doesn’t etc.


Well im hoping the newgen issue gets sorted, as even in nation your managing in teams struggle to fledge out u18 squads,

match engine is massive improvement.

Grew tired of the chelmsford save.
Opted for some Chinise super league, won the league once in the 3 seasons i tried.

Decided to try Newcastle, but after 10th followed by a 7th I managed to lose the dressing room in the third season and couldnt get a win

Also tried an international journeyman save
started at New Caledonia, kept coming runners up to NZ so opted to leave and joined birkino faso u23s for africa nations, came runners up, then opted for Macedonia for there euro playoff game but I lost so left as ddnt fancy world cup qualifier struggles, then ended up at Ghana in time for africa nations which we won. but decided to join Nigeria after this tournement

And now Im looking to start a fresh save possibly Villa or Cardiff

signed viktor fischer to be another striking option, as I dont rate Wesley on FM

they played Joe Hart in goal…Made it abit easier, spurs are also in lower half of table for some reason! happy to bring a trophy to villa, even if it is the efl cup

CL football coming to villa

won league cup again

Wel, after reinstalling windows, seems I didn’t put a save in a good place as my 2 saves are of sept 2020… Bugger.

I have a new ZiiP player file available (compatible with Fm2021 if interested).

Switched to Reading as I am using fmpr0’s files and Sheff Wed are in League 1.


Started a galatasaray save
Fairly old squad, lack of turkish talent in squad, given size of club bad facilities. Financial issues initially

Could be a tough rebuild

Also number of foriegn players reduces each season. So gotta recruit my foriegners and seek domestic talent!

Changed to Derby but file is available. Just pm me with your email address and I will send you my fmf file.

Well gala was a short lived tale

Knocked out of europe before group stages
Struggled to maintain top 7 let alone title push.

Guess ill try hjk or kobenhaven or another side that randomly perks my interest

Ive been playing as benfica.
Trying to break a curse.

1962 they won europe and the manager wanted a pay rise. But benfica said nope. Manager then said benfica wont win europe in 100 years.

So far they lost in 8 european finals.

My task is CL, EL or EL2 i guess.

Finished 3rd. Braga came 2nd porto won.
I won fa and league cup.
Came bottom of cl group with 2 pts. Group consisted of ajax monchengladbach and psg. Even lost 8 0 to psg.

So current squad is a loooong way off CL

So Blackburn finish 2nd, 3 points behind Liverpool
But won the FA Cup 7 - 2 vs Liverpool

Spoonlamp played 4 times for Blackburn
Buggsy played 36 times for SLB (loan), keeping 5 Clean sheets
Jester played 9 times for Marseille (loan), keeping 2 Clean sheets
Strongbad (Naloac) played 5 times for Blackburn
Ro Doyle played 52 times for West Brom (loan), scoring 4, making 4
Adrock played 30 times for Nantes (loan), scoring 6, making 6
Jawzy retires this season having played 12 times for Blackburn, scoring 1 and making 2
Stookz played 45 times for Derby (loan), scoring 9, making 7
Rogue plays 6 times for Atlanta (US) (loan), scoring 4, making 1
