[quote name='SuperJackLester']Yep. A gamebreaker for me aswell. Anybody managed to sort this out in the editor?[/QUOTE]

Just been shown this link - [url]http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/14251685[/url]

It seems SI had it right and Bulgarians/Romanians do in fact need a work permit.

[quote name='Mike7077']I've sorted it in the Editor but someone said Bulgarians and Romanians do in fact need work permits to work in the UK so I'm waiting for an answer on what the rules is with footballers before I save the changes.[/QUOTE]

Wow! I think they're right. Romanians and Bulgarians do indeed need work permits to live and work in the UK.

I remember there being efforts to try and control the migration of these two nationalities upon their entry into the EU after the 2004 expansion caused a migration level that took people by surprise.

[quote name='tomtuck01']I dont understand why the patch is so essential for people to start a long term/career save? Hae I missed something?[/QUOTE]
In my old savegame the league fixtures for the new season didn't get created so I had to abandon that save.

If/when I get Steam working, I'm gonna go as Exeter, Pumas de la UNAM or Fiorentina. First thing I'm do though is loading up a quick Southampton save to see Tadanari Lee in action...

I can't decide.... my Russian save just got killed. I already played Fulham, Russia (and Russian lower league), Athletic Bilbao, Catania on FM12.

Maybe thinking Polish league or something to try a smaller league. But don't want to sweat out the first few years, lazy

Started unemployed - got a job offer two days later - with Hereford. Let the games begin.

Think I have about 40 leagues and roughly 60,000 players.

This is likely to be my final save until FM 2013.

Time for my win every continents Champions League trophy save. I'll probably load two leagues from every continent apart from Oceania where I will just load New Zealand, will either start unemployed or as a team in New Zealand, most likely unemployed.

I started a new long-term save yesterday as Wolfsburg. Simple reason is that they were the most active team in Europe during the transfer window and made some great signings. Also now have some exciting young prospects who can contribute in the first team from day one and will feel like my development projects.

[quote name='Gripper']I'm torn between continuing a save I had started in December where I took over Bury in April 2012 (they were as good as down) and have worked very hard doing their summer break and was just about to start season two in L2, or as starting in Eastern Europe. Problem with the latter is that there is too much choice! Poland or Ukraine? Russia? Czechs? Serbs? And which club if I do?[/QUOTE]

If you want to choose an Eastern European team I can help. Lived in CZ for nearly 5 years so know Czech and Slovak football well and am Polish so know that league well too. One major flaw though is that my team Ruch is the worst in the whole of the top Polish league on FM when in real life we are title contenders. I hope this has been fixed now in the update because the Polish scout really did a bad job on players but also on simple things like rivalries where there are lots of basic errors.

[quote name='c4liban']1. FC Kaiserslautern - Why? Because its my favorite club :)[/QUOTE]

[quote name='Koki']Yay, mine too! Good luck with them. In case you need a good striker, try to buy Canesin Matos :)

I will start with Bonner SC in the 6th German tier... I edited the database and added a lot of regional teams, I hope it will be fun![/QUOTE]
Not one, but two Kaiserslautern supporters on here!? I never thought I'd see the day around here :D

I shall be starting with Kaiserslautern with ThomasH's database that goes down to the Oberliga. And as above, I am because it's my favourite club!

I'd like to say I'm starting a long-term game, but with my record, long-term means actually completing a season. There have been so many ideas that intrigued me, plus a couple long breaks due to computer issues and whatnot, I've started at least two dozen games between FM09 and FM11 and have only finished an entire season twice. Paralyzed by too many options, I guess.

I just started an earnest save for the first time in awhile (I've been just tooling around, mostly). I'd like to settle in with this one for awhile and not space out on it. I'm starting with Sheffield Wednesday. No particular reason, really.

Started a new Celtic save after the update - a fan of course.
Going to stay with them for at least five years, then maybe move on.
Got an idea to start another save in a few months where I'd try and get a job as an u21 international manager/b-squad and try work my way as an unknown.

Starting one the weekend. As always I'd say I'll start unemployed with only Sunday League experience with England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Spain as active league then see where the game takes me... Normally settle with first or second club that hire me and take them to domination!!!

Ok Finally decided and started. Using the England level 7 & 8 Mod and taking Woodford United, an 8th level English team. My starting payroll budget is $350 a week, and I'm predicted to finish in the middle of the bottom. Got my work cut out it seems.
