I thought I'd post in this thread after lurking for a while and enjoying some of your updates.
After getting annoyed with player interactions in the full mode I gave Classic mode another go this year and decided to do my career save. Setting up a game with England, Spain, Norway, Belgium and Sweden I embarked on a journey to start unemployed.
First stop was Byrne FK in Norwegian 2nd Tier, with 4 games left they were 3 points adrift of safety, could I be the man to save them from relegation? 1st game saw defeat and looked unlikely. 2nd game I managed to draw and keep within 4 points of safety. Won my final 2 games but unfortunately still got relegated. I resigned and started looking for my next destination.
After a long while Roeselare in the Belgian 2nd Tier came calling, after saving them in my first season from relegation I got a steady mid table in season 2. Considered leaving due to restrictions on players willing to join my club but decided to give it another year. My star MC from season 2 had been poached by Nice so I was left with my back up AMC plugging the gap. This turned out to be inspired propelling Roeselare to a 3rd place finish and a chance at the playoff. Promotion was never on the cards and we finished bottom managing to pick up a draw and a win against Mons. I resigned after most of my 1st team got poached again and decided I could take them no further.
It took a while to get a job I wanted but Oldham came calling sitting 24th in League 1 I thought it was a good challenge. After taking the job I realised they only had 1 CB and 1 long term loan left, so I immediately used that to bring in a young CB from Sunderland. I struggled for consistency but managed to finish 20th saving them from relegation. I started planning my team building for next season but to my surprise I got sacked!
York finally came calling fighting relegation in league 2 I struggled to find a system that worked consistently but managed to put a 5 point cushion between myself and relegation but went and lost 3 in a row and got sacked. This time I felt I deserved it.
To my surprise Tranmere offered me the job at the end of the season having lost in the League 1 playoff final. And this is where my game currently is.
I'm really enjoying classic mode and don't think I'll ever go back to full game again.
