Problems with blocking and running? Are things reaching fever pitch? That'snot our problem, we're Ballybogey FC!

Ballybogey are a team lingering way down in the 10th tier of Northern Ireland, this will be me seeing how far I can take them before FM20, not youth only but the DoF or Chairman or Assistant Manager will be making signings.

Leagues loaded:

I'm wanting to do this to see if by time I get Ballybogey up into Europe we'll be facing some different and interesting teams in European competition.

Day 1, we have no way of getting youth players into the club and we play in the Northern Irish Coleraine Morning League.

Glad to see you do a Northern Ireland challenge! Played in many of those tiers before although more towards Ballymena/Belfast directions.

2018/19 Pre-Season

An expected massive loss against Aberdeen but we scored a goal! We managed to beat non-league Ballysillan, 7th tier Iveagh Utd, 4th tier Bourneview Mill & 6th tier Lurgan Institute.

3rd favourites, hopefully we finish ahead of the reserve sides.

5 in so far.

Interesting, reckon you'll be in the top divisions in a week or so! Was hoping to see another save like your Asian Persuasion save at some point.

You'll probably notice more and more teams as we climb the leagues then!

Yeah I recognise a few already. Always loved Atletico Antrim. There is also a couple of Eastern European only teams as well floating around the leagues although not sure if this has been picked up in the database at all.

We'll see what happens with the FM20 editor is released, I'm just not a big fan of the Asian Champions League layout.

Might be an absolute pain, but if you get a chance can you post the teams in each league? Been a few years since I have played in the leagues and they tend to move about a lot. Last year an amateur side got to the Irish Cup Quarter Finals (Larne Tech O.B). The Polish club names should be obvious but can't for the life of me remember them.

I've not noticed any foreign looking team names. :(

Our first defeat at home to our closest challengers to the title (we're now 1/3rd of the way through the league.)

A defeat away to Ballycastle puts a slight dent in our title challenge, but only the smallest one as a Lee Bradley hat-trick sees us beat Macosquin 3-1 and finish the month 6 points clear with just the 3 games remaining.

I'd say more likely is he has a PC with a top-notch CPU.  My games take forever because my laptop has a 5th gen i3 which is a bit crap these days.  I think if I could afford something with a more meaty CPU I'd get through games much quicker, as we all know the longest time in FM is the processing time between matches.

I'd think it's continue game timeout and instant result on match days. Although @kevhamster must also be right with the top-notch CPU - there are over 250 leagues loaded here!

Always love your threads Makoto, this one's very interesting.

I occasionally use Instant Result for friendlies, but I like to be able to make adjustments in the match.  Not that it's doing me much good at the moment in my current save!!

Hmmmm definitely some teams missing in those leagues although I can understand as it's not necessarily easy to get information on them. By the time you get up I presume Larne should be knocking about the top of the Premier league!

I think it was NepentheZ that got me into Northern Ireland back in FM08 I think it was with Knockbreda.

That's a shame then, so far the league has been won by Coleraine and Dungannon Swifts with Larne coming 2nd last season.
