  1. Hands down, for this true Hero, ladies and Gentleman. I did my fair share of editing the leagues myself, but this insane. Thanks!

  2. Outstanding work, but I can’t help but be a bit sad that portuguese league is not playable. Any chance you’ll might do it in a future update? Champions League winner that season was FC Porto, with Jose Mourinho, Deco, Ricardo Carvalho, Vitor Baía… would be so, so amazing to be able to play with them!

    Thanks a lot.

  3. how come nobody noticed that Man city has suggar daddy owners??? and chelsea not??? its the year when abramovic bought chelsea and start pumping money in the club, while city has to wait another 5 years for sheikh owners 🙂

  4. Mat Scientist. You are an absolute genius. FM should employ you immediately. You brought back my childhood and my love for Football Manager. You are definitely a true source of inspiration

  5. @TheMadScientist FM

    Not sure if your interested, but I’ve added the real fixtures (and results) for the Championship (Divison 1) that season, along with changing all Championship teams average attendance to what they were irl that season.

    I’m more than happy to send you the link if you wish to add it with fixtures too. I am thinking about doing Premiership fixtures/results too for that season. Took me over 12 hours to do all of the Championship fixtures/results.. so just want a break and bit of play for now 😀

  6. Very nice work mate, thanks!!
    One minor issue, Richard Chaplow at Burnley (a very promising young midfielder at the time) is set as a coach and not a player.

  7. When I downloaded the direct link and tryed to load it in the game, I acctually waited for 6 hours to load and it still didn’t. By the way I have very strong machine ( runs AC Odyssey, FarCry 5 on highest specs) . Do you know what’s the problem?

  8. hi i have downloaded this awesome file when i load the game and file in game how long do i need to wait for tit to load the game

    • Lots of clubs around the world is complete, but not entire leagues. I believe the top 6 teams in Holland is pretty complete, but it wont be enough to be a playable league

      • Yeah i played Ajax on this and the Squad Seems to be correct for the most part only thing that i noticed is that Rafael van der Vaart is missing.
