ToMexico!! Posted December 10, 2020 Share Posted December 10, 2020 I'm at a point now where I want to start a thread of my own but as I'm having so much fun with my current #DanskeDanske save it won't be with a new save. To be honest, will I ever reach the end goal of the #DanskeDanske save; probably not! I'm going to treat this very much as a journeyman save of sorts. Going back to the beginning I loaded the game up with the following leagues; Denmark (All Leagues/Playable) Norway (Down to 2nd Tier/Playable) Sweden (Down to 2nd Tier/Playable) England (All Leagues/View Only) Finland (All Leagues/View Only) Iceland (All Leagues/ View Only) Not sure what the approximate player count was at the beginning but its now at 34,000 after 12 seasons. I took over at Danish side Slagelse in the 2. Division and finished a respectable 3rd, keeping the side in the same tier after the league re-shuffle. The following season we stormed to the title and won promotion to the 1. Division. A commendable 6th place in 2022/23 season was followed by promotion in 2nd place a year later. The club would be competing in the top tier of Danish football but I wouldn't be... I was successfully interviewed and took the job in Norway at IK Start who were struggling slightly in the 2nd tier to Norwegian football. We clambered up to a respectable 4th place in the 2024 season and gained promotion via league win a season later. A unexpected 5th place finish in 2026 was followed by another unexpected finish, this time in first place to seal the clubs first title since 1980. Back to back 2nd places to Molde then Bodo/Glimt have been eclipsed by our very own back to back titles in 2030 & 2031. In Europe, we've had a bit of mixed success, in 2028/29 we finish bottom of Group A in what was our first CL group stage. A season later we reached the EC2 1st KO Round but lost to Danish side AaB. In 2030/31 we achieved a quarter final place but lost to Nordsjaelland in the EC2 competition again and last season we reached the EL group stage and finished an impressive 2nd place ahead of Napoli and Nice. We face Shakhtar in the 1st KO Round. The Manager Currently I am 31 years old, having made my manager as young as possible for longevity purposes, I hold a Continental A License but am currently studying for the Pro License. I hate the media and delegate almost everything. Current Squad GK's & Defenders Pickering is a cut above here ability wise, signed from Tottenham for just £375k, I am surprised no English clubs have come in for him due to the player limitations the PL has from Brexit. Mensah is the right back, signed from Crawley on a free in 2026. Storviken is first choice (when not injured) and he plays alongside one of either Paulsen or Berge. Rimmereid and Usurelu rotate at LB. Midfielders & Strikers O'Connor and Hansen are my preferred central mid partnership but we rotate this position a fair bit. Aas is on his way which leaves Kommedal and Adlandsvik this season with the other Aas and Mohlala able to fill in in difficult times. Varga predominantly played RW but can be deputised by Oltra who joined from Barcelona in the summer. On the left its been Filali and Eppler rotating. Up front its been another rotation area, with Mohlala primarily alongside Aga. Aga is now starting his decline and the injury he's just sustained will do him no favours but his goalscoring record speaks for itself; 233 goals in 246 appearances in all competitions. We have to be mindful of the limit of the foreign players we have registered in the first team, which is nine. I'm in the process of selling the couple of freebie Argentinians I recruited which will lead to less problems with unhappiness at not being registered or them having to be loaned out season upon season until space is freed up. Over the season's I've been successful at signing young foreign players and selling them on for profit + 50% profit clauses which have become quite fruitful for us. Bujar Cela was signed for 80k and sold for £2.5m to PSG, he now plays for Lyon. Cedric Tiesse joined on a free from ASEC and was sold to PSG for £4m. Hordur Bjarnar Olason joined from Valur for £125k and was sold to Juventus for £3.5m. Frederik Danning was signed from Asante Kotoko for £400k and then sold to Porto for £3.2m plus we sold the 50% sell for near on £6m. Gabriel Prempeh cost £21k from Ashanti Gold and sold to Chinese club Wuhan for £9.5m rising to £11m. Emmanuel Mohammed was a £10k signing from Hearts of Oak and sold to Arsenal for £6m rising to £9m. We sold the 50% clause for £6m and gained £1.5m from an international appearance. I will always continue this ethos to generate income for this club and the next club who ever it may be. There are bargains to be found and profit to be made. Anyway, I'm not done at Start yet, I feel we are not far away from winning a European trophy albeit probably the EC2 more than the EL. There's still room to grow the club through facility improvements and the club becoming more self sufficient from its intakes. 1 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
