Northampton Town save FM 19

Recommended Posts

Having began a save with Swansea City (where I was promptly sacked after 6 months!), I began to question myself and my methods.  That was until Northampton came along.  Sitting 16th in League 2 by this team, the remit was simple - Do not go down!

Quickly settling on a 4-1-4-1, safety in my first half season in charge was straightforward enough, with loanee's Marvin Sordell and Joe Powell producing on a consistent basis.  The summer of 2020 provided a fantastic opportunity to clear the decks, and having entrusted acquisitions to my fantastic director of football Graham Carr, the second season in charge has been a resounding success.

I have ended up in as enjoyable a save as I can remember, and wonder if anyone else has any stories of surprising success stories.

I had a similar save this year with Mansfield, took them over in L2 when they were 13th and got promoted the next season with 120 points. I got offered the Stoke job the next year, and got them up too :) 

Kun Temenuzhkov, will bang them in in L1/L2 for anyone looking for a forward in those leagues.

Ended up getting Northampton to the Championship.  Malik Wilks on loan from Leeds was terrific that season, along with Dominic Gape and Callum Reilly.  Half a season in the Championship and I was offered the Derby County job.  Massive potential there so took the job.  First signing, Malik Wilks.  Fingers crossed he can have the same impact in the Championship.
