A question for SI (or anyone who has encountered this). Takeover bids

9 posts in this topic

I’m a newly appointed manager at Cheltenham Town in the Vanaram National League. After three games into the season I receive a news item telling me the club is the subject of a takeover bid.

Following a transfer embargo and much speculation, the club is then taken over by new owners. I then start getting news items about a potential new manager watching my games in the stands because its rumoured the new owners are keen to replace me with him.

My question is: does this actually ever happen? This speculation continues for around four or five games before the owners confirm that I will be kept on as manager. This is the first time I have encountered this in FMT and I found the speculation around my future to be really realistic and interesting. I wouldn’t have begrudged FMT if the new owners had sacked me.

If this doesn’t happen (because the developers would worry about a backlash from players) then that would be real shame.

Happened to me when I got Chester promoted. They kept me, in the end, but gave me an ultimatum. Even though I'd won the national league with 98 points.

So they didn't get rid of you straight away? They just set high season objectives?

I've never been fired from this in FMT but I did in last years full FM. Does anyone know if you can get sacked in FMT in this manner?

There isn't anything specifically different to FMT in this regard.

But my question was could the new owners sack you without giving you a chance to prove yourself to them?

Because they'd want a high profile manager in charge of their money/team, so it is possible.

I had this happen to me on FM14, but luckily never since.
