Well, I love reading threads about success and failure, but what about a thread dedicated to the mediocre?

I have a long term save with Leganes in the Spanish 3rd tier (i think it's the 3rd tier anyway) and we've finished in mid table for 7 years. We always do the same thing. I never have any money or resources and we just plod along for years. I guess it's quite realistic in many ways. However, it is boring and average.

Hurrah we won 1-0.
Wow, we drew 1-1
Oh dear we lost 0-1

Does anyone else have a more boring or average career they'd like to share?

Well, I consider it mediocrity, kind of. With Nardo, in Norway, I got promoted and relegated straight back again for a while. Mainly because my board decided to install undersoil heating (at a part-time club with a balance of 50K), which cost 800K. Even though we never postponed a game without it.

I love being a yo-yo team. it makes every season interesting but after a while you just kind of want to go nuts!

Sorry for my bad english, I'm from argentina


I'm managing Blyth Spartans, the first season we won the playoffs and promote to BSP. Since that season, I'm in the BSP midtable (currently i'm in 2016), all my achievements are getting to playoff finals (and losing) and now i'm in the finals of FA Trophy, wish me luck!!

But it's very funny and realistic, I get bored of constantly promoting and being champion of premier league in 2015....

Haha that happened to me in Racing Club (Argentina), the board installed undersoil heating but there's no snow in that area of argentina!!

I'm currently 10th out of 20 in Serie A. I've won 14 games and lost 14 games and have a 0 goal difference.

I'm the definition of mediocrity!

I had a 3 season spell of averageness in the Hong Kong leagues.

For the sake of my sanity, I had to quit there.

You guys are nuts haha, if I don't notice any sort of increase in performance in the club after 3 seasons I leave and if the board are not supporting me in any way I leave sooner than 3 seasons.

Managed an amateur team from Liecthenstein in the Swiss 4th tier (out of five) for 6 seasons now. Every season I loose my top players to (semi-)proffessional teams who actually offer them a salary, sign a few promising youngsters who've been dropped from swiss teams in the 2nd or 3rd tier. Get knocked out of the cup early on and go on to finish mid table. My board will not let us go semi-pro and if we did, we'd be in financial difficulties sooner then you can say 'Liecthenstein'.

That's practically me every version of FM. The team name changes, but 9/10 I spend half a decade/decade in the Segunda B (or below with the advent of the lower leagues becoming active thanks to the editor). Longest I spent was FM09 with Lanzerote. 9 seasons. Once I ended up in the playoffs before being hammered 8-1 in the first game. I ended between 7th and 11th every season before it :D

My goal difference for that season was rather small like +6 or something. When I won I won 1-0 here and there, but when I lost it was like 2-1 etc.
