[FM18] What do you call genetically modified corn? I suppose it's still corn-ish.

I'm bewildered.

Literally my favourite moment of this bonkers career

Surely we could have ground-shared with Portsmouth or something!

Cardiff, Swansea. Somewhere in Birmingham. So many better options!

Lets just shove that Tottenham game under the carpet, it's been a good month barring that result. We should have beaten Bristol City as well but we conceded in the 86th and 88th minute to end up with nothing.

Ok, if you can relegate Arsenal, I'll stop holding you to that CL by 2080 :D

Plymouth Argyle has a Premier League standard ground. But whatever.

They just miss out, Premier League requirement is 12,500 and Plymouth's ground holds 12,000.

how big are the crowds at the "new" ground currently?

 

and are Portsmouth still at Fratton Park with a 20100 capacity?

Our average attendance has been 12,201 so far this season.

Fratton Park now has a capacity of 19,669.

Just the four points but we came so close to getting a point away to Liverpool and all three at home to Manchester United, they scored in the 85th and 91st minute. :(

In that case it has apparently been downgraded in your save:

Time to rely on plastic fans instead of the loyal old ones who remember who Iraklis Hatzimouratis was.

Well it’s a win for me. A non plastic who gets premier league football at their doorstep

Definetly ground sharing with the wrong Pilgrims!

Normally I’d be triggered but based on location can’t argue with that

I read your Asian journey till the end and didn't know about this one. I saw many messages about 'St Buryan' but didn't have a clue who they were or what anyone was on about haha! I finally found this one and have been (slowly) reading through it bit by bit. I have just caught up and...

 

WOW! what an unbelievable career Makoto. I've never been as gripped to a FMCU thread as I have this one. Normally only read the updates but on this thread I've been reading almost every comment from you and everyone else too. I agree with a comment I saw recently about enjoying this save more than my own current FM save! :D

 

Huge congratulations on reaching the Premier League so quickly (okay maybe not so quickly!) and I can't wait to see where you go next. :applause:

 

Finally. Can I ask how my local team (Alfreton Town) have fared and also AFC Liverpool as I follow them IRL as I am a Liverpool fan. Thanks.

Thanks Clarky that means an awful lot! I'm glad you're really enjoying it! :D Progress may be a bit slow this week as I may have started playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 again which is taking up most of my free time.

I can't wait for us to get our facilities sorted and hopefully we can tread water in the Premier League to keep the money flowing and get some Premier League quality players soon enough!

As for those clubs, it doesn't make for good viewing I'm afraid.

Oh dear. Maybe I should be a bit more accepting of their results in real life then as I now know that it’s possible for them to fall a lot lower :D

Doing very well in a very tough league.

You could use one of your Euro Trucks to commute to Boston.

I ended up in Bergen, Norway. At least the first and last letter are the same.

Two very narrow losses against historically bigger sides in Arsenal and Tottenham and two very narrow wins moves us up to 14th and nine points clear of the relegation zone!

Thats another great intake, congrats. 
Do you think the stars given to the top youngsters reflect a good premiership level?

The stars given are based upon the current quality at the club and as the teams come through the league's, they are probably mid to high level championship..maybe low level premier league at best.

I read through this entire thread and found it downright AMAZING so far. You must have the patience of a saint. I honestly would've rage quit multiple times, especially considering how many times it all went down to the wire, to the last game of the season.

But I do have a question, is there a particular reason why you're not signing any players? You should be able to sign some now that you're in the Premier League...

I wouldn't even think about it, hopefully we'll get to the stage one day where players won't want to leave us in the first place. :)

What are the chances! If this goes through then it will be St. Buryan's 2nd tycoon, before this save I don't think I'd ever had one tycoon!

Even if you were to go down, two-season EPL money + parachute payments should be enough to run the club for a decade at least
