    Create-a-Club Challenge for FM18

    I present to you… Offaly For this challenge I’ve decided to stay local and create a club for my home County Offaly in the Irish midlands. Starting the save on the 8th of January 2018, my Manager will compete in the second tier of Irish football, in the 1st Division. The expectations from the board for the season ahead is the not very ambitious target of finishing bottom of the league, and when you know teams cannot be relegated from this division, it seems I’ve landed myself in a no-lose situation. Keeping in mind that the clubs nickname is the Faithful, I’ll be looking to hire loyal staff as part of the club’s recruitment policy going forward. After assembling a professional squad of 27 players for the value of 110k, one of the first problems I notice is the wage budget is 4,330 per week overbudget. And with only 829 euro to spare in the transfer budget, I know managing the finances and attemptting to trim that wage bill will be my first task. A scouting budget of 1.3k only allows me to look within the Irish 1st division for potential new players. Hopefully I can improve this as time goes on. As I chose to release all backroom staff in the set up of the club, new additions in that area should be made over the course of the pre-season. In terms of facilities, it’s basic in both youth and training and the club will play its home games at Ely O’ Carroll Park in Birr town, a ground with a 5 thousand total capacity and a 2 thousand seater stand. Naturally, Offaly has a rivalry with the only other Midlands team in the top two tiers of Irish football, Longford Town. Two city clubs, Cork and Bohemians of Phibsborough in Dublin are also included as rivals. A look ahead to pre-season and the early fixtures of the season show 3 scheduled friendlies and a Leinster Senior Cup match against Cherry Orchard as warm up for the season opener at home against Drogheda United. A squad overview, key player profiles, tactics, and friendly results will be included in the next post.
