  1. Database Setup The database that I'm using in this save is Helsvenskan by Justus that I got from Steam. This database contains the complete Swedish Football League System. I have made changes to the database by creating my own football club. I have also loaded Realistic Injuries by majesticeternity and Language Overhaul - Increase the Immersion by majesticeternity, in order to make the save more realistic. I have only loaded the Swedish Leagues in order to be able to keep the game running fast. The club I have created is in the Division 6 Skåne Norra which is the 8th tier of Sweden, the database is down to the 10th tier in Sweden or as it is named Division 8. The team I created is in my home town in the southern of Sweden and since the Swedish League divisions are based on where the teams are from, the lowest a team from my home town can be is Division 6 (Tier 8). This is the managers starting attributes. In coaching badges I went with what was recommended, but with past playing experience I went with one higher than what was recommended. The manager that I created for this save was myself. Perstorps BK Now I have taken over as manager of Perstorps BK and the media is skeptical to my appointment as manager because I'm not a promotion specialist. The media predicts the team to finish second in the league and the board wants promotion within 2 seasons, so I have some work cut out for me. Facilities front it is the bare minimum, the stadium is the biggest in our league which we share with our city rivals Perstorp Bällinge IK it has a capacity of 1.500 (400 seated). At the start of the game we have 3 players in the media dream 11. When it comes to our division and the rules, there is 1 automatic promotion place and 2 playoff spots, the biggest challenge when it comes to the rule it is that we are not allowed to sign non-EU players. For those who are not familiar with the Swedish league system and it's rules, here are the basics: The disciplinary rules are more strict compared to the English ones your players gets suspended after every 3 yellow cards and every red card for 1 match. 7 subs on the bench and you can use 3. Players This is the players we have at the start of the game and I'm pretty happy with this. We are lucky that we don't have any non-EU players at the club. I had one test save where I had 2-3 non-EU players at the start that where good players for our division. Staff We only have a Assistant Manager at the start of the game, I would like be able to bring in at least a Head Physio, Chief Scout and Head of Youth Development. Our Assistant Manager Ricky Simpson is okay for now but I would like to improve on this staff position in the future. Club Info The club was founded in 2020 and it is the 3 of February 2020 that this save starts. We are a Semi-Professional club with a obscure reputation which isn't surprising considering it was just formed this year. This plays in to me wanting to make this save as realistic as possible. We have 3 local rivalries with clubs that are very close to us and 2 derbies, one of them being with the other team from Perstorp. The facilities are as I mentioned before are very bad, but teams this far down in the Swedish league do not have good facilities. Finances Ours finances looks acceptable. All currencies will be displayed in Swedish kronor which is the currency in Sweden, in order to increase the realism and since I am from Sweden this will not confuse me. For those who don't who where the Swedish krona stands relative to other currencies here are some general guidelines: £1 = 12 kr €1 = 10 kr $1 = 9 kr We do get club membership money since like almost every team in Sweden we are a Member Owned club. We do get a grant from the Swedish government as all other clubs in Sweden. The projection does look good however I have gotten the feeling from FM20 that the financial projection in pre-season is very far from what the financials will look like at the end of the season.

  3. League Update We are still undefeated this season, with another 8 wins and 3 draws in the league during October, November and December. We are also through in the Rheinlandpokal after defeating our local rivals TuS Koblenz, we beat them 1-0 with the only goal coming from the penalty spot. In the next round of the cup we have draw our other local rivals RW Koblenz. Now we have the winter break so hopefully that won't ruin our undefeated run. We have had our preview of the youth intake, it doesn't look promising but at lest it isn't has some positive things to say.
  4. League Update After all game in July, August and September have been played we are top of the league. With 8 wins and 2 draws the season is looking promising. We are very solid defensively, we have only conceded one goal. We have hit a bit of rough path drawing 2 of our last 3 games, the reason for this is we have been missing players that have been injured or suspended by red cards or they have accumulated enough yellow cards to trigger a suspension. We also had the draw in the Rheinlandpokal where we will play our rivals TuS Koblenz in our first official rivalry game. The transfer window have closed and on deadline day I brought in two goalkeepers on amateur contracts. Since I only had one goalkeeper in the club that was allowed to be registered. Neither the board or the fans was happy over the signing and I can't blame them because they are far from being acceptable but I needed some one that can play goalkeeper if my first choice gets injured.
  5. Preseason At the start of preseason I manage to re-negotiate the club vision to not include sign under 23 players for the first team. I also tried to remove the don't sign players over 30 but I didn't want to push the board to hard. The media prediction has us at second while the board expects a top three finish, so either this is going to be an easy season or extremely hard. I brought in some more staff since I only had an assistant manager, and as with all lower league saves it is not the best staff I could get but the best I could afford. During the preseason we got a main kit sponsor which is good because our finances wasn't the best to start with. Squad The squad was looking a bit thin so after bringing in all the player that even remotely wanted to play for me on a trial. I manged to sign a few on either amateur contract or non-contracts. This is what my squads looks like ahead of the first game of the season. Matches Preseason was only four weeks long and with a small squad, I choose only to play a game per week. We lost both of our rivalry games with 1-0. Against RW Koblenz it was a hard defeat since they scored a last minute goal on extra time. All in all I am happy with the preseason since I was mostly using the matches for match sharpness and finding a tactic that would work for my squad. This is my tactic that I am going to use for the first match of the season: With my tactic I am keeping it as simple as possible and since we are expected to finish top three I have chosen to play with an positive mentality. These are my three best players at the start of the season. We have our best player Alen Muharemi that we signed on a non-contract and he is also the only descent central midfielder I have. Andreas Behrmann is our creative player attacking wise and Markus Hartmann is the leader of our defense with is looking pretty good so far.
  6. RD Koblenz Welcome to Koblenz, Germany. A lovely city by the river Rhine and this is where this save begins. RD Koblenz is a team I have created in the Rheinland-Liga in the 6 tier of the German league system. I choose to create a team in Koblenz because it is a city without any big football team that has a high attraction rating in the editor. It is here I will try to create a club that will rise through the German league system and find glory and fame. This is where the story begins with the first day on the job and I get introduced to the club. Club RD Koblenz have three local rivals all also based in Koblenz. TuS Koblenz is the biggest team of the three. TuS Rot-Weiss Koblenz and FC Germania Metternich are the other two with the last one being the smallest. The facilities are pretty okey to start with, basic youth recruitment and basic youth facilities are a good start and I have some work to do on the training facilities. There is a big stadium for the league we are in, considering it can fit 10.000 people and 2.500 are seated, that is not bad in the lower leagues. Finances The finances don't look to good so that is something I have to work on. Starting Squad Lets have a look at the players at the club at the start of the save. The first team is looking a little thin but it there look to be a couple of good players in the squad. The Under 19 squad is looking weak and expensive. The Save These are my aims for this save: 1. To win the Bundesliga 2. To attain Professional status 3. To have a players come through our youth academy and make it into the first team 4. To become the biggest club from Koblenz
