Download the Best Training Schedules for Football Manager 2012
written by Johnny Karp
I’ve been on the lookout for good training regimes for FM 2012 and after some research I can say that this post includes the very best training schedules for Football Manager 2012. I have visited almost every Football Manager fan site and forum out there looking for these and I have selected four training schedules that look good enough to make a difference. Let me introduce them one by one.
Maestro Ugo’s FM 2012 Training Schedules
Maestro Ugo was pretty successful with his schedules for FM 2011 and now he strikes again with brand new training regimes for FM 2012. There are both senior and youth schedules included and the basic philosophy is, according to the author, as follows: “Create training regimes of slightly higher workload than the default ones (two ticks higher workload), that would emphasize what I consider to be important attribute for a given position. Even though the SI finally started differentiating between positions by implementing four different default schedules, I still feel more differentiation is needed, thus creating these. Youth training should be more versatile than the senior one, thus the youth schedules are more general, ensuring players will improve in most of the areas, but still focusing on the position specific ones.”
Here is a quick run-down of the included schedules:
MU – GK: for keepers
MU – FB: for fullbacks
MU – WB: for wingbacks
MU – DC: for central defenders
MU – DM: for defensive midfielders and defence oriented MCs
MU – AM: for attacking midfielders and attack oriented MCs
MU – WG: for wingers
MU – ST(fast): for fast, poaching type strikers
MU – ST(strng): for strong, target man type strikers
MU – Y (gk) – for young keepers
MU – Y (def) – for young defensively oriented players (DC, FB, DM)
MU – Y (wng) – for young wingers and wingbacks (AMRL, WB)
MU – Y (att) – for young attacking oriented players (ST, AMC)

Ajinkx’s Training for FM 2012
Ajinkx made something a bit more complex, based on SFraser’s approach. There are two schedules for injured players that can be used to bring them back into shape quickly and there also are schedules for first team players, youth team players and schedules specifically designed for young players who have to be helped to reach their potential (these are the “Dev” schedules). Here’s the full list:

Raikan007’s FM 2012 Training Regime
Raikan’s package includes first team schedules and five youth schedules, all on medium workload because the author believes that heavier workloads can cause injuries. Here is the full list of the schedule categories: Advanced forward/Complete Forward/Poacher/Treq/Deep lying forward/Target man, Wing backs/Full backs, Wingers/Wide midfielders, Advanced playmakers/Attacking Mids/Centre mids/Defensive mids/Deep lying playmakers/Ball Winning Cm, Covering/Stopper/Ball playing Centrebacks, Goalkeepers, Youth training schedules (Keeper, Defence, Mid, Winger, Striker)

How to install training schedules in Football Manager 2012
1. If you have downloaded the whole pack including all the four schedules you will have to extract the downloaded “schedules.zip” file to Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2012. If you do that a folder named “schedules” will be created in there and it will contain all these training schedules (.tsh files).
2. Open your Football Manager 2012 game and navigate to your team’s training screen. Then click the “Schedules” tab as shown in the screen shot below.
3. Click the “Manage schedules” button at the bottom of the screen.
4. The “Manage schedules” window will pop up and there you will have to click the “Import” button.
5. Once you click the “Import” button a new window will pop up and the game should have automatically selected the “schedules” folder as the source for importing (if that didn’t happen just select that folder yourself from the drop-down menu.) All you have to do now is click the schedule that you want to import and then hit the “Select” button.
6. Once you do that all the training categories will be shown to you in a new window and all that you have to do is click “OK”.
7. The schedules are safely imported in your game at this point and all that’s left to do is to navigate to the “Players” tab and assign your players to the respective training regimes as shown in the screen shot below.
