    Well, if you're not wanting to go into the MLS just yet, which I can understand, I'd go to Jacitoville United. How is their stadium?

    Although..Kulture Yabra play in the same division, have more room to manouver and have a stadium of 7,500 so I think I might pick them to start out

    2011/12 Pre-Season Update



    The Pre-Season fixtures had already been played by the time that I had joined so I had to settle with a 1-1 draw against the reserve team, not the best start to the managerial career.


    Transfers:



    Managed to bring in quite a lot of players in on the cheap, the only downside is that most Belize players are quite old so the majority of signings were over 30 and perhaps only have a couple of years left in playing.


    Key Players (By Assistant's Rating):






    I play a 24 game season, playing each of the other teams 6 times so I'll either update after 12 league games played, or the 1st of January.

    I got all the leagues here: http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/downl...o=file&id=6173 It also has the leagues from all of Africa (Which I think is what Alex2011 is using) all of Asia, Europe, Oceania & South America in one big pack.

    Hopefully aim for a promotion, but after 3 games the first 4 teams have 6 points and last place is on 0 points so it's very tight already!

    Mid-Season Update




    A good start to season sees us scoring a lot of goals whilst conceding very few, the only shock result was the 4-2 loss to Corozal.


    League Table:




    The league sees 3 classes of teams, Us & Jacitoville having a title race at the top, Corozal & Griga being the average teams in the division hoping for decent results against the top teams whilst wanting to beat each other and then Sagitun who have really been awful scoring 6 goals in 12 games whilst only managing to pick up a draw all season.


    Key Player:



    Dion Fraser has been great so far scoring 11 goals in 8 games and he was also one of my signings!

    Kulture Yabra - Second League - 2011/12


    I tried to get promoted but Jacitoville were always doing 1 better than us, until the last day of the season.


    League Table
    League Position Graph



    We managed to clinch the title away from Jacitoville after beating them 4-2 in the 2nd last game of the season.


    Squad - We have quite a strong team but I'm hoping with promotion we'll be able to attract a few stronger players, especially at the back since our starting GK is 35.


    Transfers - We had a big transfer budget but ended up not spending too much due to the players barely costing anything to get with the most expensive player costing £9K.


    Finances - We're £153K in debt, yet we really haven't spent too much money with us only spending £42K per year on wages.



    Key Players:


    Dion Fraser - The person brought in too score goals, he didn't disappoint scoring over a goal per game with 19 in 17.

    Dennis Sorano - Was at the club when I joined, he got a great 13 assists in 19 games.

    Julio James - The veteran Mexican goalkeeper that on average conceded 1 per game but also kept 10 clean sheets.

    2012/13 Pre-Season





    A completely unbeaten Pre-Season even beating last years Premier League winners FC Belize 3-0, we were given a big transfer budget of £130K and I've spent £99K on players, I've still managed to keep the wage budget down to £1,200 p/w.

    The Premier League only has 12 games so there will be an update after 6 games played.

    I don't think it was, I think I found it in the Editor's Hideaway on this forum.

    Anyway, good luck with this, I haven't seen many people manage in the Caribbean before.
