Afternoon all. I'm in a celebratory mood. For the last six months, I feared my club would become extinct over the course of this summer. Indeed, it's not unfair to say that we were just five days from liquidation when the club was taken over on Friday, thanks to irresponsible owners and terrifying levels of debt. As a result, it's little wonder our luck finally ran out on the pitch, which is why we find ourselves outside the Football League for the first time in the club's history at the start of the coming season. However, the dark days are hopefully now all behind us, and because I currently can't stop thinking about the club, I figured it was a good time to take them on in a new save. Unfortunately it will be a retro save, but I *will* be buying FM20, simply so I can take this challenge on again from the bottom. For now though, I'll have to make do with starting in League One in FM13. The aims of the save are pretty straight forward, it will be a one-club save until I feel I can take the club no further, but I want to both take on and beat the big boys wherever possible. Ideally my transfer policy will focus on signing and developing young players, but there are no specific rules as such. While I'm not a fan of using the editor, I have made one correction to the game's database - in 2012 Notts' Meadow Lane home had a capacity that was restricted to 16,947. I have altered that to the stadium's official capacity of 20,300. Other than that, everything remains the same. Game details: FM13, medium database, 25,000 players. Leagues from England (BSP & above) Scotland (Third Division & above) Germany (Third Division & above) Ireland (First Division & above) Norway (second division & above) and Sweden (second division & above) Holland (Jupiler League & above) The manager is a fictionalised version of myself in 2012 (he even shares my first name), a 32 year old born in England from a Scottish family, but unlike me he managed to play the game professionally. He retired injured at 30, and gets his first crack at management at the club his career began at.
