    Default [FM13] "The Trouble With Being In The Rat Race Is That Even If You Win, You're Still A Rat."

    After my previous career ended prematurely due to crash dumps, I am starting again. I plan on staying at a club for a few years before I move on, unlike last time.

    Game Type - Journeyman. I will start unemployed.

    Reputation - Sunday League.

    In addition, I will not, under any circumstances, manage the following clubs:

    • Bristol Rovers (I cannot stand the club in real life).
    • Boston United (they cheated to gain promotion to the Football League in real life).
    • Sunderland ( I come from Newcastle...).
    • MK Dons (I don't do franchises).
    • Zenit St Petersburg (the recent "open letter" from their fans has sickened me).

    Good luck man! That's a lot of leagues loaded. What star rating do you get on performance?

    It states half, but it is quicker than that. I would say performance wise it is around two stars.

    CARLSTAD UNITED




    So, in what is a first for me, I start my managerial life in Sweden, in the fourth tier, with Carlstad United. A relatively new club, formed in only 1998, Carlstad have never progressed beyond the third tier, though they came mightily close in 2008, when they finished third. Three years later, in 2011, they were relegated back to the fourth tier, which is regionalised and their division is called Division 2 Sodra Svealand.

    Club - Carlstad United.

    Nation - Sweden.

    League - Division 2 Sodra Svealand (fourth tier).

    Stadium - Tingvalla IP, Karlstad.

    Capacity - 10,000 (1,100 seats).

    Training Facilities - Adequate.

    Youth Facilities - Minimal.

    Youth Training Category - N/a in the Swedish league.

    Corporate Facilities - Fairly basic.

    Junior Coaching - Average (this is the new level after the board accepted my request to increase our spending in this area).

    Youth Recruitment - Average.

    Media Prediction - N/a - End of the season.

    My expectation - N/a - End of the season.

    Transfer Budget - £48,000.

    Wage Budget - £3,658 per week.

    Current Wage Bill - £2,717 per week.

    Squad

    Strong in midfield and up front but weak at the back, no prizes for guessing where I need to strengthen ready for the new year.

    This game has been put on hold though as I have managed to get my original game back with patch 13.2.

    No, this is dead. This was because I thought Man Ure was dead for good. But it works again with 13.2 so this thread wont be updated further.
