Here we go. Time to show the rest of the world how two friends, 5641 miles apart, are getting on with our Football Manager 2012 career. Before i begin, let's give you a quick background on how we got to this stage. Tom (me) currently lives in the Midlands, whilst AJW currently resides in South Korea. We have known each other for far too long, going to school and university, going on holiday with other friends (Jolly Boys on Tour 2011) and both being involved in a local football team (RIP Blue Skies United.) AJW has since moved over to S. Korea for a short period, and whilst the time difference means we do not play together as much as we would like, we still make it work. We have both played together in previous football manger's, mainly in the English Leagues. We have had some special saves in the past, ranging from one of us getting the other sacked after declaring interest in their job (sorry AJW) to one of us taking four clubs into administration. This time however, AJW convinced me to try the Welsh Premier League. AJW has experience in this league, whilst i did not know the difference between Bangor and Barry.
We went for a large database, with the following leagues: England (Blue Square N/S), Ireland (First Division), N. Ireland (Second Division), Scotland (Third Division), Wales (Premier League) Leagues may be added or removed in the future, but as of yet, nothing has changed.
As for what we are both hoping to achieve, we basically what to turn the Welsh League into a force. This could well prove tricky and very time consuming with just one of us, however, we two of us in the same league, we are hoping that we do it much quicker and easier. We both agreed that we would only manage either the Wales or England international job, due to the fact that one of us wasted so much time trying to pick the squad for Zambia in previous games. We said we would not poach each other's players, and of course, we would only play when we were both online. Mainly though, it was just to have good fun.
Shall also add, that we are currently in the 2016/17 season, so the first few posts shall be updates of previous seasons, as best as i can. I did not really take any screen shots of the key matches, and it seems you can not longer access them, so i shall do my best to show you the key points up to where we are now. You will be glad to know though, that we are both still in our initial jobs, just.
Special mention to JackJCFC and Withnail316 who have inspired me to attempt this thread. Thanks for reading and enjoy.
