Short intro, before I get into my usual writing style...

Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, to the Adriatic Adventure, where yours truly takes Hajduk Split from wherever they are in the footballing world and brings them to the top. In FM11, it took 4 years, for various reasons, but, for the most part, it was because neither Hajduk nor the Croatian league were as mindblowingly terrible as they are now.

You see, if anyone has been following Blue's story, and it seems they were until he kept writing his Sporting CF story, Hajduk kind of doesn't have money... like... at all. And this isn't Wigan which can come out of the blue and pocket 10 million for winning the FA Cup. This is a club which can't make a dime anywhere, and simply has to hope that, somehow, somewhere, Dinamo get dethroned from the top, and Hajduk maybe comes up with something resembling long-term success.

Unfortunately, there isn't the money for even that. See, the club is so destitute that not only can it not buy players to bring in success, but it can't afford to keep the youth players that it creates. An obscene amount of Hajduk faithful had to leave the club before the beginning of the season simply as makeweights so that the Dalmatian club could continue operating in the Croatian first division, and even then, Hajduk still has a deficit of nearly 10 million €, and loans that need to be paid off to add to the woes.
