Authoring my first ever career thread on here and decided to do so at Motherwell. Decided on the Scottish leagues as I am Scottish and narrowed it down to Motherwell as they have a couple of players of real quality for the Scottish league. Started with a profile which is as follows, based on the club I manage as the game advises... The game specifics are as follows…. Expectations are as follows... So this is the start of my virgin career thread. I've been struggling the past few months to commit to a long term save so hopefully documenting my progress will inspire me to commit. I have no rules per say with the save other than I am hoping to try to stay at Motherwell and not be sacked, if this does happen then I will take another job within Scotland possibly but the goal is to remain at Motherwell, challenge the Old Firm, try to usurp them and then hopefully do something in Europe. I generally try to sign players from the nation I'm competing in so expect a strong Scottish core to the squad and also for me to heavily rely on youth and look to my youth intake each year.
Been a while since I last did a career save - took a break from FM for the last couple of years. Some old timers may remember my antics with AVRO JFC a few years back - which included South Sefton Borough climbing from EFL lvl10 to the EPL. Anyway, for this save, I've decided to go with the following setup: Leagues Loaded Belgium (1st Div and above) England (Vanarama N/S and above) France (National 2 and above) Germany (3. Liga and above) Italy (Serie C and above) Holland (Keuken Kampioen and above) Scotland (Junior + Senior pyramid - Mozza's Full Scottish Pyramid file from Steam) Spain (2nd Div B and above) Career History
A very large edit to this opening post for those who followed previously. If you haven't read this thread before, feel free to ignore this bold section. When I got a new laptop for Christmas, I thought this save (and FM13) was done. Unfortunately, family life has prevented me from having the solid chunk of time I'd need to get stuck into a new career on a newer version, so I've had to go back to FM13 for a fix of the game as having an established career allows me to play for 30 minute chunks here and there. However, the Roma version didn't make the transfer from the old laptop, so I'm back to Scotland which I'll explain further down. The things you do for FM, right? Evening all My last attempt at a new thread (previous threads here and here) crashed and burned in record time after I prematurely thought I'd be able find time to play following the arrival of mini-Withnail number 2. However, over the last couple of weeks I've found time to watch the entire back catalogue of Breaking Bad (for the first time... I know, I know. Don't judge me.) so I figure I'm clear to come back! That means I've got lots of reading to do of all of your threads, but I shall get to that... Anyway, some of you will be aware of this: An infamous headline after the club I've selected to manage beat John Barnes' Celtic side in the Scottish Cup back in 2000. You may not be aware however that the headline had been used before, in the late 70s, in Liverpool's local newspaper after an outstanding Ian Callaghan performance ("Super Calley Goes Ballistic, QPR Atrocious.") Enough, Withnail. What's the objective of the save? EDIT: The original plan was to stay in Scotland and put Celtic to the sword initially, then grind both the Glasgow giants into the dirt for years to come before having a crack at Europe. However, I decided later on that I was ready for a move, hence the (EDIT again) now deleted second chapter. If the right move comes up though I will move on, especially now I have a more powerful laptop. The details FM13.3 with no edits. Leagues loaded from England (BSP & above) Scotland (Third Division & above) Germany (Third Division & above) France (National & above) Norway (2nd tier & above) Sweden (2nd tier & above. Medium database, 25,000 players. The manager 32 year old Johann Andersson is the man in the hotseat. The Swede spent most of his playing career in the lower reaches of Scottish football before a knee injury prematurely ended his career.
