Some of you might just recognise the thread title. A few months back I had a pretty decent career going in Wales but I'd only loaded British & Irish leagues so it ran out of steam. I just struggled to attract players, so I'm hoping by adding a few more leagues it'll add some longevity to the save.
The plan then is something similar to last time, to dominate Wales and then have a good run in Europe. I'm hoping that having the extra leagues will allow me to really grow the club, especially when you see some of the talent you can easily pick off in France. To repeat what I said last time, in all my time playing CM/FM, my greatest achievement came on CM 99/00 where I took Berwick Rangers to the UEFA Cup Final, and I'm yet to match anything like that since playing the new series of the game. I'm now searching for that kind of epic challenge, but as I've got plenty of experience playing in Scotland, I'm instead going to look at Wales (the lower reputation of the league makes it a really inviting challenge, too).
I had 7 years at Haverfordwest previously, but this time I'm in it for the long term. Fingers crossed I can win a few more trophies...
So then, the details:
Leagues loaded from England (BSS/N) France (National and above) Germany (Third Division and above) Italy (Serie C2 and above) Portugal (Second League and above) Ireland (First Division and above) Scotland (Third Division and above) Wales (Welsh Premier)

Haverfordwest County AFC
Principality Welsh Premier
The club was founded in 1899 and was variously known as Haverfordwest FC, Haverfordwest Town, and Haverfordwest Athletic before adopting the current name, and plays at the Bridge Meadow Stadium, Haverfordwest, which accommodates 2,000 spectators. The teams' first choice strip is blue shirts, shorts, and socks. The second choice strip is orange & black shirts, black shorts, orange socks.
Haverfordwest County were founder members of the League of Wales in 1992–93 but their stay was brief. Having accepted an offer which involved the redevelopment of their Bridge Meadow ground, and unable to find a suitable alternative ground of League of Wales standard, they resigned from the League in 1994. The decision to take a long-term view was fully vindicated by their return to the League of Wales three years later. The league has since changed its name to the Welsh Premier League.
The club have never won any real trophies of note, their best ever finish in the Welsh Premier League was third in 2003/04. A year later they made the semi final of the Welsh Cup.
Haverfordwest have fierce rivalries with Carmarthen and Aberystwyth, and additional rivalries with Port Talbot and Llanelli. The club has a valuation of £130,000 and 50 season ticket holders.

I've instead told the board I can finish mid-table, and after putting all my transfer funds into wages I've got about £3,200 a week to play with.
