    Started a save as Burgess Hill Athletic in the 20th division.
    Just won the league so up to league 19 it is lol. Also in 2 cup finals and made the semi in another 2.

    Got interest from other clubs so might look at jumping a few leagues higher and getting a semi pro team.
    Being an amateur team sucks as you players can get poached straight away. Play 2 or 3 decent games and bang gone.
    1 player made a trip to the other side of England for $8 a week lol.

    First season as Spurs I won the league, and made the quarters of the CL.
    Half way through the second - I am 5th.

    Lamela wants out, Kane is upset I didn't let him talk to United. Vertonghen also wants out. Vardy is unhappy he is playing off the bench (purchased him for about 11m as Leicester were relegated) but he has scored 14 goals in 6 starts, 3 sub appearances. Son also wants to go to Bayern. Dembele forced a move on deadline day. Ungrateful sods - we just won the league FFS.

    I always start a game with Spurs to get the feel of the game. I will resign from Spurs and take over a Championship team when the possibility arises - hopefully at the end of this season.

    How do you get the option to play in those leagues?

    It's one of those download files you find, I'd imagine.

    Took me ages to pick a team but I'm starting up with Hamburg. Their spine is absolutely paper thin. Transfer budget: Nought.

    I've got a couple of players unavailable for matches but I can't for the life figure out why they're unavailable. Anyone know? I'd prefer to have my good players fit...

    Lordy, I remember those from ~20 years ago. I can't believe they're still doing the "Ultimate Challenge".

    On another note, bloody hell, I'm old.

    Look i think so. It's 5 versions in between so lots of improvements have been made.

    Dunno how this has happened, I probably owe a lot to dodgy offside calls and soft penalties.

    Sacked for the second time in 2 seasons.

    Unemployed, lower league management is hard... ;)

    Has anyone ever done a career in MLS? Just played a bit of MLS in FIFA and am interested to know how the draft/trading works etc. in Football manager?

    Just achieved the pinnacle of my FM playing career - won the 2018 Club World Cup with Melbourne Victory, knocking out back-to-back UCL winners Arsenal in the semis 2-1 (and their goal was an 85th min consolation).

    Starting line up was -
    Thomas
    Nigro - Deng - Ansell - Norton (LB from Sth Melb)
    Broxham
    Gerht (Danish import) - Pasquali
    Rojas - Berisha - Troisi

    Best signing in the save though has been an Italian guy called Davide Petterman from Palermo - has Australian citizenship so not an import, missed the final with an injury.

    I've tried it on previous versions. The rules are a lot to get your head around, and I've never managed to stick around for very long, but it's probably the league in the game that offers the biggest point of difference in terms of list management.
