look on the achievement guide page 5. will link it in 1 minute here
edit:

Got this info from PS3 throphies (So i dont take count! it was posted by: Junkd03 !!)
Its about the achievement It's in the blood. (Changed the post abit, since they were talking about throphies :))

Just got this achievement. This is what I did:

Start a new career mode as a player. I chose Sydney FC as the Australian league is short and I chose to use a created player. I created a 97 rated goalkeeper in order to get the Established Keeper achievement.

Worth mentioning I chose Professional difficulty. This may have helped get the Record Holder trophy.

I simmed the first season in one go (takes about 10mins) just go to the last day in May and press A then advance to this date. I got the Established Keeper and Good Week trophy.

I chose to stay with Sydney in second season as a player. After simming the second season I got the Folklore trophy. I saved and quit and got the Record Holder trophy (not sure what triggered this).

Finally I started a third season and chose to stay at Sydney again but this time as a player/manager and this is where the It's In The Blood popped for me.


Again, this is not from me, its from Junkd03 on ps3throphies.org
Im trying to do it now, will report if it worked
edit: it worked, check my achievements if you dont trust me, unlocked:
Established Keeper, Record Holder, Good Week!, Folklore (and of course its in the blood)
also

Weird, yesterday I did exactly what you did, and the achievements unlocked same as you except for It's In The Blood. At the end of the second season, I couldn't choose to be player-manager. :o

At the club selection screen where you can choose to stay with the team did you scroll to look at the other clubs?

I followed those directions exactly and at the club select screen after season 2 there were two Sydney FCs. One as a player and one as a player manager among the other teams that wanted to sign me.

Yes guys, I have like 10 teams that want to sign me, but no offers to sign as player - manager or simply manager.

When I tried this, I used a swiss team, and not Sydney FC. I'll give it a try with the same team as you guys.

OK, I did it again with Sydney FC, and after the second season, no offer to sign as a manager. I'll try a couple seasons more to see if something change.

How do you create custom players with 99 stats?

Only way I can find to create a player is by doing a VP, and I can't alter his stats!

Option in career mode.

Ok sweet.

As I asked earlier, does the age of the created player make any difference? Those who have got it to work, what age did you set your player as?

Shelder
10-03-2010, 04:46 PM
I got mine at the end of third season. So guys, keep signing with your current club until they offer you to sign as player - manager. :p

How soon did you get 'Folklore'? Just simming through my 3rd season with neither yet.

I got 'Folklore' at the end of simming my second sason with a keeper i created at 99 for Sydney FC in the A-League. I simmed 7 seasons and I wasn't offered anything but a renewed contract as a player for the club or either squad member/starting 11 player for other clubs - no player-manager positions.

I've just started another with Liverpool as Carragher to see if it works after a couple of seasons.

I also tried setting the age of my created player to 39 and he just retired after 3 seasons and the game just finishes.

HOORAH

Finally got it, I simmed through 4 seasons all the way to 2017 to no avail.

In the end I worked out what I was doing wrong, do NOT create the player and assign him to the team BEFORE you start your new Career.

INSTEAD start a new career and when it asks you to if you want to play as your VP, create a new player or use a current one, CREATE a new player then.

Did this and after the 2nd season I had the choice of continue to be a Legend or be a Player/Manager, hope this helps some of you.

This method worked for me, although I had to sim 4 seasons to become club captain then I was offered a player-manager position.

But create your player AFTER choosing career mode and selecting the "player" option.

I used me VP and it took me 7 years to become a legend and go to Player Manager. I was Chelsea. :woop:

At what point do you become a legend at the club?

I've gone from being a starting 11 player, key player and now I'm the captain and have been for 2/3 seasons. Is it possible for me to become a legend and then become a player-manager?
