Even with them, there is no guarantee that they will get a tycoon takeover.

It all seems fairly random to me, obviously there are clubs which are more likely to get taken over but there is no way to tell when this will happen or who will take over, it is just as possible you get a board member take over and leave you with the same or even less money than you had before

anyone know what clubs get taken over quickly then?

I ll gamble on it being a tycoon

do you want to start a game, with a club that are likely to get taken over???

isn't that defying the object of playing the game?, if you knew what was going to happen next, then surely thats no fun.

well in my game the only non-premier league team to get a tycoon takeover was Reading but they had been promoted into the premier league at the time

I've tried with swedish lower-league a few times, and all the times i've tried there's been the start of a takeover, after i've taken over the club :p
