I have decided to embark on a strange adventure by trying to take the team everyone forgets once played in the premiership, Oldham. I know nothing about them nor any of there players. I am now starting the game and will keep you all posted. The aim is to get into the premiership within 5 years!

Having just started I have realised what an almighty task this is going to be. With £0 transfer budget and literally a couple of hundred quid for wages, I will certainly be taking advantage of the loan market! They do have some pretty decent players Robbie Simpson, James Wesolowski, Zander Diamond, Kieron Lee but best player is probably Shefki Kuqi, the team is going to be built around him this season. However near enough the whole squads contracts up in the summer so a lot of work to be done.

Could really do with promotion straight away to get some cashflow!

Anyone got any ideas on how to make a few notes? My stadium holds 10k but I am never going to fill it in league one unless I am top all season, not going to happen! Tried to make some friendlies with big teams before start of the season but they are all too busy.

Just transfer list the dead wood! And If they don't leave by end of transfer window just put your finances to 0% transfer budget and 100% wage budget so u don't lost any money for paying the rest of there wages!! :)

Trouble is I already have £0 transfer budget and literally less than £500 a week to work with in wages. If I sign even one player I will be over my wage budget :(

This is going to be a tough one! But I have never done any particularly big challenges on FM.
