With obviously a lot of spare time for some of us now, this means that we can get some more FM hours in :D and for me, I can start a save in a region that I’ve always loved in football – Scandinavia, or more precisely, the Nordic region…the Nordic region being the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden as well as Finland and Iceland.

So, with that I’ve loaded up the Nordic leagues available in FM and have used Espen and trondaage’s Norway lower league database to start a game in the Norwegian Fourth Division.

 

Game : Football Manager 2020 (PC)

Database size : Large

 

Leagues loaded :

  • Denmark (Second Division and above)

  • Finland (First Division and above)

  • Iceland (First Division and above)

  • Norway (Fourth Division and above)

  • Sweden (Second Division and above)

 

Previous experience : Sunday morning footballer

 

With those leagues loaded, I’ve decided to start in Norway with Lillehammer FK who currently play in the Fourth Division Group 7.

Thanks fellas :thup: Really appreciated.  Not sure if many of you will remember but when this forum first started, I posted my Hong Kong save in here with a similar layout.  It's always something I've thought about doing again but never got round to it.  Now we've got some extra spare time, thought I'd dig out the old style again :D Glad you're enjoying it :)

Unfortunately, all of my images were saved on photo bucket and for some reason they all got deleted years ago!  :(  Gutting really as I'd like to go back and see them!

Thanks fellas :thup: There doesn't seem to be a lot of difference in terms of quality between the lower leagues of Norway so we're adjusting well to the climb in divisions.  At what point the quality of teams starts to show, I'm not sure, it's been a while since I've played the Nordic/Scandinavian leagues.

He looks decent and hopefully he'll make an impact.  He's got to be half decent if he's playing international football

Thanks fellas.  This could be where things start to change.  The First Division is a bit more competitive than the Group leagues in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th divisions

Thanks @Crispypaul.  It's probably been 10+ years since I last played a Nordic save.  Still have fond memories of signing players like Stefan Ishizaki, Kennedy Bakircioglu, Samuel Holmen and Marcus Berg :D

Trautason should absolutely murder the second division. He’s possibly an Eliteserien 15-20 goal a season striker already

Every time I remember to take a quick look in here, I just marvel at how good this is laid out. The fact that you are gaining promotions is also nice, you deserve the success for all your time and effort.

Good luck avoiding relegation.

Thanks @Fosse.  It's like you knew! :D He's ripping up the First Division!  Not sure how long we'll be able to keep hold of him as the big Norwegian clubs are already wanting him :(

Thanks @Jogo Bonito.  Glad you're enjoying the layout.  I do like the newspaper style, even if it is more time consuming than my usual updates.

Arendal? So Elsa and Anna from Frozen are actually Swedish.

My daughter would love this team if she knew about them. :D

They don’t have much cash really, have you offered him a new deal? 
 

I’m surprised Kristiansunds got relegated, they normally rise up the league

Just managed to finally persuade him to sign an extension :brock: hopefully that'll keep them away for a while.  He's also just picked up his first full Icelandic cap.  He could be special!

I'm surprised they went down too.  They still have a strong squad so it's no surprise that they're favourites to bounce straight back up.

Great update as usual. Also a surprise to see Mjondalen relegated. Great contract extension for your Iceman and good luck going one better next season.

Thanks @Jogo Bonito.  There have been a few teams in this save so far who've surprisingly been relegated.  As for Traustason, I didn't think he was going to sign an extension at one point but thankfully he finally has.  The lad is unbelievable!  One of my best finds on FM for sure!
