Smallest Nations Clubs Enter English football!
Way back on Football Manager 09 i ran this little experiment/bit of fun but i didn't leave too much time between starting it and FM10 coming out and well .. I feel like running it again but with plenty of time this time around.
For those interested heres the original thread.
What would happen if all the Tier 7 clubs were replaced with clubs from the Smallest Nations in the World?
Would the Small Nations eventually dominate the World Scene if given top Youth and Training Facilitys?
Could the Clubs eventually dominate English Football?
... Ever wondered about the above Questions? No!? Well of course you wouldn't .. who would .. Only me i guess!? ... anyway enough talking to myself and let me explain what i've done,
... All clubs in the Southern Premier, the Isthmian Premier and the Northern Premier Leagues have been replaced with Clubs from the Smallest Nations in the World.
I decided to also add the 10 Poorest Nations, 10 Lowest by FIFA Ranking and 10 Lowest Population as well as 2 special entrants.
All clubs were given Top Training and Youth Academy's and made sure they all had stadiums.
I also gave all clubs a reputation boost as follows;
Up to 500 = 1000
501 - 750 = 1250
751 - 1000 = 1500
1001 - 1500 = 1650
1501 - 1749 = 1750
