If my board/chairman request that i signe high profile signing how can i make sure i don't get fired over it if i don't make that board promise? Or if i wanne make sure that i make that target how do i do that? and how long do i have to do that?

first of all i don't get why they i ask that i got 11 self created/adjusted players with maxed out reputation max and ca/pa 180/200 (just changed that from 200/200 see other post). I don' t know why they ask me to still get more high profile signings?
High profile players don't necessarily mean good players, but players with high reputation. The board wants you to sign big name players who are well known.
If this is the save with a maxed reputation for your club then your board will hound you for high profile signings until the cows come home. A few high rep players like you mentioned will help sate them but think of it like this:
Man U, one of the biggest clubs in the world already have a few high profile players. If they just signed average, unknown or young players their fans would think it a lack of ambition, this would be mirrored by the board who would then request that they sign Beckham back from retirement ;)

Thats where you are now, the board need the average reputation of your key players to be closer to the reputation of the club etc. I wouldn't worry about it too much, just sign Ronaldo :)
Yeah sign well known players. So even if they are crap but famous, sign 'em up. Players like Beckham.
i think i just sign well know players
i have michael owen and damien duff and couple of others will follow soon
but i don't get it myself made/adjusted players have also maxed out reputation so normaly that should be consider high profile players maybe it is because i did not buy them.

success and reputation begets success and reputation. The higher your profile, your clubs profile and the higher the average reputation of your squad the more the board will expect EVERY player to be high profile, you'll never satisfy them until you have barcelona circa 2010-2012, even then they'd expect you to replace Puyol with Ramos ;)
They ask you this:

As supporters in real life won't be happy with just small signings e.g. Arsenal fans unrest.

Or perhaps they want someone who will 'sell shirts'. Both don't require that signing to be overly successful.. yet important for certain factors in the club.

Or even to rise the reputation of your club among neutral supporters.

I bet that fm is just mirroring that.
