FM-Base Chairman and Manager Game

  1. FM-Base Chairman and Manager Game



    This is an idea I had a few versions of FM ago, but as the online mode was, lets face it, very poor, it was hard to run. Now it has been improved though, I thought I would see if there was any interest in it again.

    How it works

    I will be looking for 3 people to play along with me. 3 directors and 1 manager. The directors role will be to decide with me things such as transfers in/out (with input from the manager), and upgrades to facilities/stadium etc, season objectives and so on. Also the big decision of choosing which club to take over.

    The managers job is fairly simple. Win! Your job is to meet the objectives set by me and the fellow directors.

    How it will be played

    I will be hosting the game on my PC. The manager will connect and play like a normal game. The directors can then join when they want as unemployed managers to look how progress is going.

    If you would like to take part, please say below, and say if you would be interested in being Manager or Director.

    I will then be writing up a story about it from the chairmans point of view, and the manager will write it up from his point of view (You managers much be good at writing). Directors can also write if they wish.

    Chosen Directors

    You have an influence on how the club is run. For example you will get a vote on if to sack the manager etc.

    You will also have an influence on new signings, building a new stadium etc

    For directors, no. I will just be deciding. But for manager yes. There will be CV applications and an interview process

    Most likely PM. Will release more details later

  31. oki dude )

  32. I would love to get involved and I would like to apply for the role of manager

  33. Also, may I suggest a lower league team as I feel this would be more entertaining, and challenging for the manager as well as the board, also means that the board may have to make changes in the dressing room based on performances!

  34. When are we going to apply for the job then?

  36. Ok, I have decided to narrow my directors down to two. They are; Tezzz and Scotty98TR.

    Sorry to anyone that didnt make it, but you can still take part. The readers will get one joint vote in proceedings (So whatever outcome gets the most votes by readers counts as 1 vote)

    Next up is to decide which team to take over.

    I have decided we have a budget of £25 Million.

    Which club will we be? Let decide!

    I'd say a lower/mid-table prem team? West Ham maybe?

    And when are you (Or we?) deciding which manager?

    The take over will be made based on their value, so its most likely to be a Championship/L1 team

    Shall I do a shortlist for people to vote maybe?

    Oh I get it now, sorry bit slow there Yeah, let everyone vote!

    Not got access to FM atm, so will probably get a list up tomorrow morning. People can still vote if they want though.

    REMEMBER:

    £25 Million - Club value = Amount left for transfer + Wages

  41. Added Jamo456 director too

  42. First of all may I add that it is an honour to be accepted with the role of director. I look forward to working with each of you and hopefully we can turn whichever club we choose into a force to be reckoned with in europe!

    I've had a look at a few clubs and I'd say there are a few clubs that I think we should consider looking at. I've listed them below and worked out what funds we'd have left to play with;

    League 1
    Doncaster Rovers - valued at £5.5 million - £19.5 million for transfers and wages.
    Scunthorpe United - valued at £3.9 million (500k debt) - £20.6 million for transfers and wages.
    Notts County - valued at £3.7 million - £21.3 million for transfers and wages.

    Championship
    Leeds - valued at £23.5 million - £1.5 million for transfers and wages.
    Birmingham - valued at £18.75 million (4mil debt) - £1.75 million for transfers and wages.
    Burnley - valued at £18.25 million - £6.75 million for transfers and wages.

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on these clubs and if you'd recommend any other clubs.

    Cheers,
    Director Tezzz.

    I like the idea of Scunthorpe and Notts County, one it gives the owners more money to expand quickly and it's more of a challenge!!

    Two old teams that need to reach the big time again for old times "for gods" sake

    Excellent list here buddy. Im going to narrow it down to just the 3 League 1 teams. So please vote now.

    Do we take over Doncaster Rovers, Scunthorpe United or Notts County?

    My Vote is Notts Country

  45. Scunthorpe United

    (a vote from a very disgruntled applicant for the Director position)

  46. As a director, I vote Notts County, a club with a very long and proud history. With £21.3m, we could add significant quality to what is already a very good League One squad, and really take it a long way, to the very top quite possibly.

    Thanks for reading,
    Jamo456

  47. I also vote Notts County, as I think that Scunthorpe would be extremely difficult, and Doncaster would be too easy (As both are on the way down or up respectively! ), so Notts is bang in the middle!

  48. I'm going to place my vote on Doncaster. I feel that they have the best quality of players should be going up at the first time of asking.

    I agree that this may be the easiest option but I also believe that this is a business run world.

    Cheers,
    Director Tezzz

    Is that everyone voted now?? Can we get this thing started I want to know the club so i can do the CV... I'm thinking former england international retired and currently working outside of professional coaching, he has expressed his desire to return to the game and really wants to earn his place in football management. He also would offer great opportunities to link up with former colleagues, with rumours of parent club possibilities.

  50. Thank you for voting everyone.

    After the vote, it has been decided we will be taking over Notts County. I will be making a new story thread shortly and I will put a link in this thread. This thread will now become a discussion thread for the game, while the other thread will be just for the story.

    Now comes that time where all you managers can start applying for the job! All you have to do is PM me your "CV". You can lay it out however you like, and include whatever information you like, Which ever one my directors and I feel are most suitable, we will move forward for an interview process.

    Thanks everyone and good luck
