Hello and welcome to my attempt to once again share a career and a story to you lovely people of the careers forum! I hope this will be a bit different than most of the careers on here and add a little personal shine to it, just so its not a boring England save
The Plan (Sometimes I like to think I have a plan, but really I don't)
Bring the worlds attention to Australian football! Through this mod here I have included the state leagues of Australian football, ranging across the states. This will allow me to start off deeper down the Australian pyramid, and not start at a team in the A-League because the A-League is pretty boring
-Start in Western or Southern Australia, two states I have lived in
-Become a prominent Australian manager
-Manage in the A-League (Even though it is boring now, it might not be as boring on FM, and seeing as this is an Australian save, it would be stupid not to do it )
-Progress into Asia or South America (Two areas I have never managed)
-I might delve into Europe although this is save dependent.
The Save Itself
The game is being played on a large database, not sure how many players. I am holidaying to July 7th, 2012 to get rid of all the clubs without managers and others leagues I loaded at the start but have cancelled.
Argentina - Down to Second Division
Australia - Down to district divisions
Brazil - Down to third division

I don't want to set myself to updates on the dot, I'll make them when I feel the need to update, I play this game quite slowly and I'm sure will have other things to be doing
Hursty - You arn't in Mandurah city is what I meant
Thanks Choclate, Nobby, Acid and Bomba
Heading to South Australia!
Western Strikers are a football club from Adelaide, South Australia. Strikers play in the South Australian Super League.
Their home ground is at Carnegie Reserve.
They are great rivals of fellow western suburbs sides like the Toros and White City.
The club was founded in 1980 under the name of VC Woodville City Junior Soccer Club with a complement of three junior teams. - u/10, u/11 and u/12.
In 1994 the club fielded a senior team for the first time which played in the SA Amateur league
The entry into the State League also coincided with a change in name to the Western Strikers and a change in playing venue with a move to the Grange Reserve. In 2000 the club moved to Carnegie Reserve.
I'm on a one year, part time contract earning $625, no transfer budget and 500 down on our wage budget.. don't quit your day job hey?
And this is the dire position we find ourselves in; (No idea how to make full size pictures anymore if someone could tell me a good way please say), But we are 10th out of 10 in the South Australian Premier League with 4 points from 11 games, with no wins to our name
All right so now I know how put pictures into good resolution, I can give you guys a brief overview of the mess I handed myself
As I couldn't get it in the last post, here is a visual picture of the league table with us a comfortable bottom. Linky
As you can see, the situation isn't good at all, which isn't helped by our abysmal squad and injury list, out of a squad of 20, 7 are either injured or banned, which left me little choice when I had to play our first match against Cumberland United. Squad Linky
Western Strikers 0-4 Cumberland United (Kelly, Bulabek 2, Skoumbros)
I tried to install some creativity with our 'tactic' which was an inventive 4-2-3-1, the only trouble was however that we had 3 actual defenders, and on of them was at 50% fitness going into the match, as a result of that and general poor defending we got pretty dominated, I'm hoping I can fix our squad by at least the next game.
