    LL's Strategy Insight

    Another great read. I feel weirdly connected to this topic since I'm playing a save with Hereford (youth challenge). Got promoted in my first season and noticed the same struggles as you have described in this topic. I am basically re-living your Truro save I'm at the point where beating the top 5 away from home seems easy but I've struggled at home against the bottom teams. Perfect time to be reading your post about re-assesing your tactics. Hope you keep posting and writing about your struggles on your way to the Premier League title!

    LL's Strategy Insight

    Great write-up. This is a must read for people who struggle with tactics should read this. On a more personal note, I love how you go trough your process on making decisions. I might not necessarily agree with a certain tactical decision, but at least I can see where you're coming from. Great stuff. Any blog/youtube channel I can follow you on?
  3. Another year, another youth challenge. Kettering Town FC 2018 - 2019 (Season 1) League Table I Season Review I Finances I Transfers I Stadium expansion Season goals: First season is all about getting rid of the bad players, involving youngsters and making sure the club stays healthy by making money at the end of the year. The board expects me to fight bravely against relegation. Season recap: The first season went perfectly. After some decent cup runs we never got into a relegation battle and parked our car in the middle of the league table. We kept our money in our pocket and made a nice profit at the end of our fiscal year. We spent hardly any money on scouting and kept the wages in check. This made our board decide to expand our stadium even though we barely reached 27% of our capacity all year. We were lucky to have our first 'golden generation' and thus got rid of some older players to sign 8 youngsters to the first team: Luke Draper: Liban Elmi: Jason Martyn: Clive McNamara: Christian Prince: Tony Scott: Daniel Woolford: Jake Wright: Daniel Woolford and Jason Martyn are instant starters. Season summary:
  4. Started my youth challenge last night and was thinking about this topic. Glad it's back. I remember the first few pages when everybody was saying how easy this would be with the fixed bug Love your work and keep grinding. Establishing some sort of domestic dominance is a vital next step. How are your coaches looking?
  5. I loved Cleon's stories about players asking him dumb stuff. Would be nice to hear 1 story per podcast about a stupid mistake or question you guys get from other players.
  6. It's kinda depressing to know that youth challenges might be blocked because of this bug. Your San Marino save being the best example. Hopefully SI gives us more information and fixes this. I'm going to keep an eye on your thread in the bug forum. I'm wondering if this is just for the really small countries (Faroer, San Marino etc. etc.) or other countries like Hungary (where I have a youth challenge) too.
  7. Damn, so close to qualifying past the group stages. This thread is gonna explode when that happens

    The Annual San Marino Youth Attempt

    As usual I will follow every San Marino thread. Glad to hear you are back.
  9. Can't even tell you how excited I am with the new challenge tracker. Makes it so much easier to track your process. I was wondering how you were going to handle the aging of Hakan. Love the twist and can't wait for another 50 years of world domination.
  10. Last youth intakes are just keeping you from taking that next step. It feels like you're close and one great European year could be the breakthrough.
  11. Last season really is a kick in the balls. At least Gobbi rolled out of your youth center. Looks like he'll be a beast and a future cornerstone of the club.
  12. Took a whole week to read this 76 page long topic but it was absolutely worth it. I had so much fun reading this. I'm kinda bummed I have to wait for updates now to see how this continues Can't believe you are still going with this save. Just amazing. Off-topic: Even though I'm New York based: Go Hawks!
  13. Great progress and good to see the NT getting better too. I might have taken the NT job just to try to boost their results as well as it affects your European ranking with SG.
  14. I did not realize those things were hardcoded. Makes this challenge even more impressive. I'm excited to see how far you can take this.
  15. Just read trough the whole topic. Great work and really fun to read. I'm kinda surprised by the low PA outcome of the youth recruitment. Do you have a professional head of you development?
