I've had as little dabble with [FM20] managing RB Salzburg in Austria and the game seems reasonably stable. (No crashes at all for me so far). I wasn't really feeling the save though so have decided to start a proper one. # I've started unemployed, with no badges and with just Sunday League previous history and all the Nordic Nations available have been activated. I played in some of these leagues in FM19 and even won some of them, but others will be completely new to me if and when I get there. Last year I started in Iceland, but in the Icelandic First Division the clubs are still professional, so I think I have to start lower than that if possible and look for something part-time or even fully Amateur. That doesn't mean I won't give something else a go 1st just to get things up and running, (remember I started with a B-Team in FM19), but I plan on getting to the very bottom and then making my way from there. The game start date is Apr 2019.
The FM20 Beta released this week. Let's get stuck in with a new save! After the Twitter poll suggested 87% that we should start in Europe, I asked my wife to name a European country. So, we're off to Finland and joining FC TPS Turku in the Finnish First Division. FC TPS has recently been relegated from the Premier League and are working their way back up to promotion. How will we do as a Sunday League Footballer with no certifications? Series Trailer:
Welcome to Nordicland. (Thanks @XaW) So I was getting a bit bored in Brazil, (winning, winning and more winning is ok, but I need more), although it has been pointed out by @kidthekid that I left prematurely without winning the Copa Libertadores so I'm sure I will go back and do that at some point. I have never managed properly in Scandinavia, (other than a damn good stint in Iceland), and this is an idea for a FM20 save so I am testing out the lay of the land so to speak in anticipation. For some reason the @claassendatabases didn't work when I installed them, (I think he only updates the megapack after a certain time), so I'm not playing with a huge database for each Nation and instead am playing "out of the box". For that reason too, the Faroe Islands are not playable unfortunately. I saw that the Finnish structure is now ranked lower than that of Iceland, (certainly didn't use to be the case), so I decided immediately I was going to start there and I was obviously starting in the lowest League which is the First Division, (YKKÖNEN in real life). As is my style I simply looked at who had the best infrastructure and while all the Training and Youth Facilities were much of a muchness, I could see quickly that in terms of the Youth Intake, there was 1 club that was ahead of the curve. So in I jumped to...... Klubi-04. Everything looks great. We even have some new signings joining us. Background. The Squad. Looks amazing if I'm honest. No less than 14 out of 18 players have 5.0 PA. That's astonishing. Where is the catch...... Facilities. Look amazing. Finances. We have £1.7M in the bank. What the hell!!! This is madness. The U20's squad is simply phenomenal. What on Earth have I stumbled into? Oh hang on. I know what's happened. I have been here before. We are a B-Team and we can't get promoted. That's fine. This is a decent way to start the save for me as I start with minimum reputation and badges, and playing a season will be fine and probably better than holidaying until the end of the season and then taking over a newly promoted club, (that isn't a B-Team). just a point of note by the way...... I wonder what would happen if HJK got relegated and Klubi-04 won the 2nd tier at the same time?
