    Default Biggest Club Debt- Looking For A Challenge

    Who starts the game with insecure finances and big debt? I would like a challenge similar to Notts Forest back in 01/02 where they stood at around £25 million in debt and you had to balance the books. I know Preston have a big loan they need to pay back, but thats not quite the same as staring at a big red number on your finance screen...

    Anyone who has access to the editor fancy doing a search? I'd be ever so grateful- I'm stuck on damn Steam offline and have no way of accessing the database (need to download it i think) for a while at least.

    Thanks

    I think Plymouth will be a big challenge.

    Plymouth would be a good shout. However, I've seen people get taken over fairly quickly by someone with money. They may not on your game though. Cardiff go into debt alot on my games, after a few seasons. You could try Darlington? I'm currently £250k in the red in January of the first season. Apart from them, I can't think of any.

    You could alternatively go back to being Forest . Funds aren't that free at the moment and you'd have to wheel and deal in order to buy players.

    Deportivo have a loan for 110m I think and Valencia have something similar.

    Yeah Plymouth look a good shout, standing at around a million in the red and several other loans outstanding, but I was hoping for a massive figure to try and whittle down, before taking monthly loan repayments into account. Theres got to be some clubs somewhere surely

    £1m in the red for a League Two Club is alot. If you don't get taken over then you should have a challenge.

    Maybe this will help.



    I searched in the editor for clubs with a balance of £0 max, then just looked for the team with the highest negative value.

    Its not necessarily the size of the debt, but the debt v club income. Try Portsmouth, the salary budget will decrease each year as the debt grows

    Simon, don't bother trying to explain or tell them. People still say Notts.
