    Hello, I am going to start a career mode on here but was wondering if anyone had a spreadsheet template they would be willing to share? Just one to keep track of stats, standings and records or something.

    I'm terrible at making them and after trying a few times I just thought I'd ask.

    @LAboog4 start with the right size. The default width of this forum is 768 pixels. At this width, everything will be automatically centered and nothing cropped. Nothing too small, too big, or unevenly to the left.

    Thank you, I will make some adjustments to my graphics.

    Looks like FIFA 19 modding is finally arriving soon.

    So, I'm thinking about doing a semi-realistic RTG at some point. What do y'all think about this crest redesign:

    What does RTG mean? I don't know Coventry City much to know about their symbols and tradition, but looks nice.

    @WestardLord the new crest you made looks really nice! A bit in style with the new Manchester City crest.

    I really like that @Ashy. Good mix of information without being too detailed that it is overwhelming.

    @Ashy looks really nice! Like the mix of information, all relevant for an update I believe.

    Premier League Question:
    Tottenham finished fourth this year and qualify for CL in the playoff round, correct?

    What if Tottenham defeated Liverpool in the CL finals. Would they then qualify for CL next year at the group stage?

    Also, let's assume Arsenal beat Chelsea in the EL final. That would give EPL an extra CL spot next season, correct?
    Would Arsenal then play in the playoff round or the group stage of CL next year?

    If Spurs beat Liverpool and won the UCL they are automatically in the groups and are also in pot A along with the top 6 league winners most likely Barca, Bayern, PSG, Man City, Juventus and one more. The final 2 spots in pot A go to UCL winner and EL winner.

    If Arsenal beat Chelsea they would take an extra UCL spot correct, Arsenal would be automatically in Pot A along with the top 6 league winners, I believe 4th place would have to play a qualifier game.

    It's quite confusing but as it stands Pot A consists of, Man City, Barca, Juventus, Bayern, PSG, Benfica, Liverpool and Chelsea

    The Top 4 qualify for the Champions League Group Stage. Since both Tottenham and Liverpool finished in the Top 4, the group stage spot (Champions League Winners) goes to the 11th ranked league, which is the Austrian Bundesliga.

    Red Bull Salzburg won that and their 3rd qualifying round spot (what they get for winning the league) now becomes a group stage spot.

    If Arsenal had beaten Chelsea, they would go to the Champions League group stage, as that is what you get for winning the Europa League.

    Because Arsenal didn't, they will go to the Europa League, as they finished in an EL spot.

    The spot now goes to Lyon (3rd in Ligue 1) as they are the third-place team in the 5th ranked league. So it now means their qualifying round spot becomes a group stage spot.

    Hope that makes sense. :smile:

    Thanks guys. It makes sense. I was primarily concerned with how it relates to the Premier League table so I can get mine to automatically highlight qualifying teams at the end of a season.

    Zenit, not Benfica. Russia is above Portugal in the UEFA rankings.

    Potentially a weekly transfer update graphic I designed, main story and 2 sub stories will have text going into detail on them then the 6 tweets on the biggest rumours of the week, what do you think?

    Thanks, I've also created a 10 point history timeline for a first page post, think I've covered the main historical parts of Arsenal's history, just maybe need to add a design to it so it doesn't look so plain, really looking forward to doing an Arsenal CM in Fifa 20 just hoping the news in the next 2 weeks is good for us

    What do people like seeing in scoreboard graphics? I know it is down to the person doing them and how much time they want to include but do people like seeing lineups and stats or do they just care about the score and who scored? Just getting ideas for next season.

    I personally only tend to look at the score and who scored. Can appreciate all the work people put into making it much more in depth though.

    Main things you want are team names and or badges then the score and goalscorers along with the time they scored. Make that clean and as clear as possible.

    What I'm thinking of doing is adding a picture then two/three results under it instead of single game updates, people sometimes add form, formations and line ups but I'd say only do that for the big games

    Depends on what other information is presented and how. If the graphic is accompanied by a match report, then just the team logos, score and goalscorers is fine. If it is intended to stand on its own or only with a highlight reel, then I'd probably want to see some stats and/or lineups.

    Yea that is what I'm thinking of doing. I have done some in the past whereI made videos every match but that tends to grow old after a while.

    I'm thinking of doing updates every 3 games with either a bigger update for key matches or just a short top plays video at the end of each month.
