Hello, welcome. You may remember me from such careers as....oh what? It appears last year's career has been purged. Taken against it's will (allegedly). Anyway, I once had a good career that I documented here okay?
Where to begin...I've spent most of FM12 seeing to the big European nation small club to big club challenge. If you're at all interested in my Novese file (which went on to Champions League victory no less) you can find it here.
Now, onto more pressing matters. This is a career I hoped to get underway last year but never got round to. It had endured countless discussions with Crouchaldinho but sadly never came to fruition because of various commitments.
This time however, I'm taking the plunge!
Based on Jonathan Wilson's book Behind the Curtain I will embark on an escapade around the Eastern European nations. Therefore I have loaded the following leagues:
Belarus | Bulgaria | Croatia | Czech Rep. | Hungary | Poland | Romania | Russia | Serbia | Slovakia | Slovenia | Ukraine |
To provide a source of crap south American's to the database I've also added:
Brazil | Argentina | Mexico
I may add some more leagues as I progress but the plan is to remain in eastern Europe. Hopefully I'll be able to create one of the great dynasties, much like Valeriy Lobanovsky's Dynamo Kiev. Because that's the beauty of eastern European football. As fractious as the nationhood is, there has always been enduring tales from truly unlikely places.
I hope to create the next in the list.
Start Date: June 2011
Manager Name: Alexander Romantsev
Manager Nationality: Lithuanian
Manager Reputation: Sunday League footballer
Attribute masking is on
As ever, I will play this game as realistically as possible. So if a genuinely fantastic managerial offer comes in, I'll take it. I won't deliberately plunge my team into hideous debt just for the sake of signing the 'next whoever'. I will attempt to manage in all 12 nations along the way but will begin with the lowest reputation possible.
I think that's everything. Wish me luck
