I've been struggling along with my Scandi-Nordic save, but I just wasn't feeling it for some reason and have hardly played since Christmas until recently. The Joint Save got me interested in FM again and I started playing the Scandi-Nordic save, (and it was ok), before absolutely falling in love with FM all over again during a really brief spell managing Rijeki in Croatia in the Joint Save. But my stint in charge of the Joint Save is over and I just can't go back to Scandi-Nordic land. There have been a couple of threads that have really piqued my interest. I'm a huge @Makoto Nakamurafan and as long as he is managing in the right leagues, I love reading his stuff. Similarly @smp20is someone who's threads I always take an interest in. They are managing in Faroe Islands and Wales respectively, and when each started I felt a huge sense of envy that they were managing there and I was "stuck" in Scandi-Nordic land. Oscar Wilde famously said..... Others less well known have been less polite. With the above advice ringing in my ears, I have been too much of a chicken to risk direct comparison with @Makoto Nakamurabut have foolishly decided that comparisons with @smp20should be risked. I am playing in Wales. More than that I am going on holiday for a year and taking over a newly promoted club in either the JD Cymru North, or the JD Cymru South. (Yes, that's exactly what @smp20did in his Monmouth save, but what have we just said about imitation again? (I should point out that Monmouth were again one of the promoted sides, but even I couldn't go that far).
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?
