Sounds like a tall order to me. What was the points reduction for anyhow? Isn't there a couple more teams in that league with reductions as well? If so, you've got a good chance of beating at least those teams... Good luck!

For coming out of administration the wrong way, apparently. Three teams start in negative points - Luton, Rotherham, Bournemouth, iirc.

I have it on one of my saves, stayed up first season, just! In second season and now the challenge, for me, has gone!

Over on OTF2 I did see someone play as Luton and saved them from relegation and he also went through the league season unbeaten as well.

With 4 games to go on mine, i was sat in 23rd position, with Bournemouth above me, 6 points away, and next to play.

I beat them 1-0, to make it 3 points from safety, then lost my final three games on the bounce! Was gutted as a Town fan, taking them down...

However, the board were satisfied that we gave it a good go, and didn't sack me...

Tried to go onto the next season, and keep getting an error message on the same date about Crash Dumps, so have been unable to continue. I was looking forward to bouncing back as well...

So FM, sort all these bloody bugs!

I play FM with a Luton Town fan and in the 1st season he went a bit mental and got them into the play offs only to lose in the final... he was gutted to say the least but not a bad acheivement at all. There not in too bad shape really aside from the money situation but you can offload quite a bit of excess wage early on and bring in cheaper better replacements.

I'm managing in the EPL, but I noticed Luton escaped demotion in my 1st season. Their form would have got them automatic promotion if it hadn't been for the penalty.

When I was managing Luton I finished 19th in the first season.

Second season I finished 4th gaining promotion via the play-offs.

Third season I finished 11th in League 1.

Mid way through the fourth season I was sacked with the team hovering just above relegation. :(

I finished 16th with luton in the 1st season and then finished 3rd in the 2nd season. In a relegation battle this season though.

They always seem to finish mid table in my games - only lost 5 in my latest game and finished 12th

Finished 22nd (three points clear of the drop) in the first year in my game. If not for the penalty they'd have finished 4th.

I'm looking foward to getting the game next week and spending the whole of Christmas keeping us up!

Seems like most people are managing to accomplish it so hopefully it isn't to hard.

Stayed up easily on my save, not my team though. Would have won the league by 6 points if not for the deduction. Bournemouth also stayed up by 2 points from Rotherham.

They stayed up on my save, I was not them though but the following season they went down. Even though they did make alot of good loan signings including Lee Trundle who i wanted but they got him and they never played him haha.

In my Dafuges challenge game they stayed up and, if I recall correctly, would have won the division (or come second). Rotherham and, to my utter dismay, Bournemouth got relegated.

I haven't finished a season in any other game yet, as I haven't been able to really get into a game up till now. :(

i had a go with luton and got rid of the 30 quite quickly and would have been second in the league and then it crashed and i lost 6 games progress including a 6-2 win over mk dons in the fa cup and a victory over rotherham, as you can imagine i was furious and so started a new game with a different team

I'd love a challenge like this, however i just can't bring myself to play as L*ton.

Why not play as Bournemouth or Rotherham then?
