What measures are those, mikenevo?
As a new player, this has been quite difficult for me. Maybe it's just that I'm at a low reputation lower league club with barely any support, but it seems from looking at the finances that even if my wage bill were zero we'd still make a loss.
Sometimes it seems you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
The club is in a bit of a bind in some ways. The income is so low that it doesn't take much to plummet into the red. Obviously, success improves income, but (and this is due to my lack of experience) I find that success involves some kind of expenditure.
My plan has been to do all that the board allows me to do to get success for the club; essentially taking a hit now in the hope that it will be offset by future success. Unfortunately, it's not working out so well at the moment and the club's finances are shot. I've done well staying within wage budget, but last season it got a little over but the board were content with it (I had a lot of long term injuries to key players). However, recently the losses have been mounting and now the club is valued at £0.
Most annoyingly, the board reduced my wage budget without warning and are now moaning at me for being over budget. Thanks very much, board!
Anyway, I'm in pre-season at the moment and this one is shaping up to be really difficult. I also can't seem to shift deadweight. No one wants these players, which is perfectly understandable because I don't want them either.
I think I've learned some good newbie lessons for LLM though from this save:
- make more use of loans
- don't be so attached to players
- don't panic buy because there's a deficiency in my squad
- don't have so many backups
