FM 2020 Training Schedules Guide For Pre-Season
I think of pre-season as a process to prepare my players so we gradually build up layers. Use ‘week 1/2/3 pre-season training’ in its appropriate week. These are designed to build endurance and quickness.
During weeks four and five use said weeks training, these are designed to work on technical and overall physical. Below is how your calendar should look, scroll to the bottom for installation instructions and credit.
FM 2020 Training Schedules Guide For Chance Creation
During game weeks I use four Football Manager 2020 training schedules, let me explain each schedule and its purpose. We have a mix of Passion4FM’s work and FM-Korea here.
FM 2020 Chance Creation Training Schedules
Every single game week bar cup finals should be trained using one of three schedules.
Chance creation Sunday game
Double game week
The standard chance creation schedule should be your default, then use the Sunday schedule when you have a game on the Sabbath and ‘double game week’ when you have two games in one week. Simples!
Only time I move away from this is if in lots of competitions and consistently playing two games per week. Here I alternate weeks between chance creation training and double game week. I found my players were under trained and complaining otherwise. This was in an extreme case of hunting down the quadruple!
Football Manager 2020 Training Schedules Guide To Win Cup Finals
Cup finals are a one off game which require specific preparation and we have one schedule for such occasions made by FM-Korea. Simply use the ‘Big Game’ schedule week of any cup final.
These schedules will not work for part time clubs but will suit lower league full time teams. I have only included the schedules I use for the first team, which are heavily based around chance creation because of the systems I use. I leave my Assistant to handle Youth training but if you want to take control of that, try Passion4FM’s guide here.
