Let us know how you go.I've picked up a pretty good challenge in FM.
I've taken over bottom of the table Forfar in Scotland's lowest playable tier with six games left.
These a couple of surprising things about them that excites me with the challenge.
They have a 7,000 capacity stadium which is pretty big for this level which helps if I jump up the leagues.
For some reason they also have very good financials and have around 1.2m in the bank which is staggering at that level.
The club is spending $100k under it's wage budget and has a transfer budget of $200k which is huge money for this level.
If i can keep them up I'm pretty confident that i can gain promotion on first time of asking.
So when I joined I was 2pts, 3pts & 4pts off 7-9 which showed how tight things were in the relegation battle.
Started with a loss against local rivals and then a last min win against league leaders had some momentum go my way.
In the first 5 games i had 2W, 1D and 2L which isn't too bad for a last placed side but i was still last with the final game left.
Was on top of the team but couldn't produce any worthy chances and at 0-0 was still going to go down.
Finally broke through in the 60 min and had the sealer 80 mins in to secure safety.
Following other results i shot right up to 7th which shows how tight things were.
Looking forward to an off season of recruitment and a promotion challenge.
I was playing Watford.
So far, so good.Let us know how you go.
160m on youth intakes signings? Or were they already established elsewhere.Some of my regens
1.2m (buyout), absolute steal.

42m with add ons. Looks the goods.

Backup for Haaland. Cost me 51m including add ons. Only 19 so plenty ahead of him.

70m from Vigo. More than happy to pay that given he is English too

Only 16, pumping plenty of minutes into him with the U23 and U18 teams. Training with the senior team and given the occasional run in the first team.

Youth product, really happy as I needed a backup RB. Good replacement for Bellerin long term.

I bought them all.160m on youth intakes signings? Or were they already established elsewhere.
What season are you up to?
Yeah I mean straight from their youth intakes or were they a few seasons into their careers?I bought them all.
Pires from Lisbon (they have a stupid amount of excellent regens), Milton from Vigo, Tetteh from Porto, Pena from Atletico. Black and Brewster are youth intake products.
Yeah that and personality traits are keyDetermination is the big one I look for in any player.
It means they want to be better, want to improve, so if they have half decent stats but like 18-20 determination, I always try to bring them in as I think their ceiling will be high.
