Welcome to the wacky world of Colombia, where the leagues are confusing and where the nation has had a...troubled history, but this is the story of Real Santander, the club who moved 441 miles away from the nearest point of mainland Colombia just to be able to keep playing football.

The club is brand new so I will be making history with the club, the aim being to take the club to the top using only players coming through the youth system. In real life Real Santander plan to move back to the mainland in 3 seasons, I hope this isn't replicated in FM as I want to take the islanders to the top using only islanders.

We have a big, young squad!

The youth team is empty though.

2018 Pre-Season

We drew at home to two of the biggest clubs in the country, a good start!

We're predicted down in 10th, at least there's no relegation.

We almost completed a Tottenham style comeback in the Copa Postobon but we were knocked out on penalties whilst we've been better in the league and temporarily move into a playoff spot.

Two more good wins and we move up to 6th, still only in the playoffs by two points though.

Not a bad month by any means, but we fall to 6th, just 2 points away from 3rd though.

Two losses yet somehow we're still in 2nd, but with 3 games to play we still haven't guaranteed a playoff spot!

A very good first season, we did far better than I could have expected, hopefully we do better next year when our best players come back from their loans!

A lot of draws but we're 2nd in the league but we could be knocked out of the cup by the side that are dead last in the league table.

you keep getting close. Hopefully third time's a charm. Are you using the attacking 4-3-3?

Where do you keep finding these teams?

Based on how fast Makoto plays, there is a constant focus on football, with roughly 1 hour a day away from FM to allow his computer to recover, where he uses his phone to search of obscure football clubs, references, or records to file away for future saves
