    Default Takeovers?

    What has been the strangest takeover in any FM?
    Mine has to be on FM 10 in my latest game, Blyth got taken over by some greek tycoon while in league 2 and thier reputation then became worldwide lol . They managed to sign Mancini and Juisse from Inter and Borduex. I didnt notice untill on the England screen it said that Blyth were classed as a big club, bigger than Liverpool and Chelsea.
    So whats your strange take over?

    The same happened in my game, before David Gill took over for about 20 years, before leaving after an Austrian billionaire sugar-daddy arrived.

    I'd be surprised if he were Javier Aguirre.

    St Mirren got taken over by a Brazilian tycoon who pumped 60 million into the club.
    Were competitive against the Old Firm and won a few cups but never finished higher than third in the premiership.

    A Portuguese tycoon took over Alfreton Town in 2018 in my save and guided them from the Northern Premier League Premier Division to the Championship in just 8 seasons before leaving 5 years later with them established in the second tier.
    An English consortium took the reins and they have been relegated to League One in 2032/3.
