When I started a save with Braga a few months ago, I was just hoping a few seasons, having some fun with Trincão (my favorite player in FM19) and Xadas.
Little did I know I would make my longest and most succesful savegame ever, and I started the football management games with Championship Manager 01/02!

So I played 39 seasons. 17 teams. 2470 games. 111 trophies. 144 individual awards. 78% win ratio.

Teams I managed: Braga (15 seasons), Gremio (0.5), Club America (1), Mamelodi Sundowns (1), Beijing Guoan (1.5), Dortmund (6), Man City (5), Marseille (7)
National teams: Portugal (3.5), France (2.5), Espagne (0.5), Etats-Unis (6), Afrique du Sud (2.5), Chili (2), Brésil (8), Australie (0.5), Nouvelle-Zélande (2 months)

Leagues: Liga NOS (9), Ligue 1 (6), Premier League (5), Bundesliga (3), Chinese SL(2), Brazilian Serie A (1), Apertura Mexique (1), Clausura Mex. (1), ABSA Premiership (1)
Cups: Portugal (9),Portugal league cup (6), France (6), England league cup (4), France league cup (2), England (2), Apertura Copa MX (1), Germany (1)
Other national trophies: Portugal supercup (12), France supercup (4), Community Shield (4), Mexico supercup (1), Chinasupercup (2), Germany supercup (1)
European competitions: UEFA Champion's League (10), UEFA supercup (9), Copa Libertadores (1), CONCACAF Champion's League (1), CAF Champion's League (1), Europa League (1)
Continental trophies: Club world cup (7)
National teams: Nations League North-Am (3), World Cup (2), Confederations Cup (2), Copa America (2), Nations League Europe (1), EURO (1), Gold Cup (1), African Nations Cup (1), Asian Nations Cup (1), Olympics (1), U20 World Cup (1), Toulon tournament (1), U17 South-Am Championship (2)
(and 4 Superclasico des Las Americas, if we can consider it a trophy)

What I miss:
- Oceanian Nations Cup: I got New Zealand just before I stopped so it was just a matter of time
- Asian CL: I completely forgot I never won it...
- Oceanian CL: can't play in any oceanian league, so impossible
- LaLiga and Serie A : to get the 6 biggest leagues


(it's in french but you get the gist of it. 29 national leagues, 31 national cups, 30 others, 21 international titles)

It became really frustrating in the end because of some glitches. For example, my board would not accept any improvement on the infrastructures. I had an average attendance of 66,339 for at least 3 years in a row, and my stadium has exactly 66,339 seats. Yet impossible to get a new stadium. Every year the board told me my infrastuctures weren't on par, yet they always refused to do anything about ot.
With national teams, I couldn't get any coaches for U21, U20, U19. Nobody would accept, and when I'd put an ad, nobody would answer. Even horrible staff out of contract would refuse, so I would have to manage all categories.
So glitches killed that save, unfortunately.
