Fortuna Sittard, that is! This seems like quite the interesting team, they have a history of having a good academy(though in game it's not great) and an eye for talent. They have good history having competed in the top flight, and won cups, but recent history hasn't been great and they've narrowly avoided having their license revoked. They've recently gotten out of some severe financial trouble too. In game, they're expected to be mid table(media prediction of 10th), but start with a 3 point deduction, and the board just want to avoid relegation. They begin with average youth recruitment, and have a 12,500 cap stadium(actually, checking that, in game it's 10,300 for some reason), third largest in the 2nd division(the second has 12,600 cap). I also greatly enjoy their eye catching yellow and green kit. So, low expectations, but a good prospect if things go well. As for the save, I've no hard and fast rules in place. I'd like to develop their academy and return it to former glory, but I also have a mind to try and bring in a few Irishmen and Canadians. Of course everything is subject to change as the save rolls on, and I'm always open to suggestions. Sittard itself is in the southernmost province, Limburg, has about 48k population, and looks quite the lovely spot. The club's key player is a winger/am on loan from Galatasaray, On almost 8k a week though, which is a whopping 27% of the clubs total wage bill, I may cancel the loan, I'm sure I could get a few decent loans for that kind of coin. The hottest prospect, in a throwback to the heady days of their academy is a 16 year old already in, and good enough for the first team. He looks quite the prospect at that! On a youth contract, first job is to fix that, second is to see what we have available tutor wise. That's the rest of the squad. The injured lad has a concussion..... for the next 6 months. I presume this is something much worse, that SI don't like to mention in game, like guys that have cancer having a "virus" in game. There are 10 more players split between the reserves, and u-19's, lots of high PA star ratings, but none look especially noteworthy. This is the 5* guy, maybe he'll do well, I'm not expecting it, though. Tactically, I have no real plans of a system or style of play, we currently have a really decent left wingback that looks perfect for bombing on and a few CB's that seem tidy for this level, so I wouldn't mind a wingerless or 3 at the back system to take advantage. Right back is a massive hole in the squad though, so we'll see what summer brings(transfers are off, but we can loan). I tried to get an interesting mix of countries, and a few from each continent, I'd have gone for plenty more but I wanted to keep the speed good.
