....managing obscure nations, so you don't have to
I've been quiet on FMCU so far since FM12 was released due to my rediscovery of the Small Club to Big Club Challenges over on CSE. However, I find it hard to commit to one club for too long and always find my journeyman eye roving after a while. I've missed the journeyman way of doing things and I've also missed international management as well so I thought "why not combine the two?"
So I've come up with an later ego: Dustin Powers, the International Manager of Mystery!
Nobody knows where he came from or how a Sunday League footballer came to be an international mangement sensation...
Starting with the more obscure nations of international football, I hope to work my way up to more prestigous jobs with the ultimate aim of winning a World Cup. I may pick up a few continental and regional titles on the way as a bonus.
This has all been made possible by the sterling work of two contributors to the editors forum, namely Unknown Hacker, who has created a series of downloadable leagues which I will be making use of, and Poop, who created a whole bunch of extra international competitions which will add some extra incentive to my time with smaller teams.
I will also be making use of the add/remove leagues feature as I trot the globe at the helm of various national teams. After watching Gabon's exciting win over Morocco in the African Cup of Nations, I decided to start in Africa so I have loaded South Africa and all of Unknown Hacker's extra African leagues, except for the North African ones which I shall load when trying to win some of the Arab compeitions.
I have also loaded England (down to BSS/BSN), France and Belgium (due to the number of African players in those leagues) and also the top two divisions in Germany, Italy and Spain - I expect I will keep these running throughout the game but I will most likely remove the African leagues when I move onto another continent.
Poop's extra competitions include all the regional African championships so I have loaded those (only the senior ones as all the U23 and U20 ones would take too long!)
Now to decide where to start this epic journey....
