As much as it must be nice to have such a deal in place with all those players i'm not sure i'd enjoy it that much. Romping the league like that for me would get boring come november. I prefer to build a squad on a shoe string with some loanees and do become attached to players at this level and for some reason i never feel let down by any of my squad.
I'm currently Witton Albion in the BSN and have crewe as a parent club and in my first season had 5 of their players on loan with two getting 17 goals each that season. I tried to get them back for the 2nd season but crewe said no and thus i currently don't have a single loanee in my squad at the moment and i've taken great pleasure in replacing the 5/6 loanees with free transfers i've found and shant have to worry about bringing in more replacements come next summer.
If i do go up then i'll feel more pleasure having done it with a a squad that i've assembled and with a squad that's had to work for their success and not strolled it like Frazier Campbell (not having a dig).
I guess that's just me.
Fair play and what I normally do. It's just the way this save has progressed for me. I'll be building my more permanent squad next season.
If it's any consolation, I won't be able to loan as many players next season - maximum of 5 loanees in the BSP.
Out of interest, Runcorn Linnets play at Witton Albion IRL. They are the fan formed club from the ashes of Runcorn F.C. / Runcorn F.C. Halton, who you may remember from previous releases.
Wonder if the game recognises any financial gain, although probably very small, from the ground sharing deal.
Anyway, nice to see someone playing as one of the Cheshire clubs. I remember following Runcorn back in the days when the Cheshire clubs were a power at this level. One season, you had Runcorn, Altrincham, Macclesfield, Northwich, Witton, all in the Conference. They were great days
