I’ve not played FM for a few years, but on a whim decided to get back into it. I attempted a few challenges (British Steel etc) back in the day, and usually failed miserably which leads me to believe that I was never much good at the game
This time, rather than the pressure of a challenge, I’ve decided to go on a journeyman erm..journey, starting at the closest bottom tier club to where I currently live, and see where the game takes me. To add plenty of diversity, I’ve loaded a ton of leagues all over Europe.
I will try to play semi-realistically with the following self-imposed rules:
1. Any club move must be for a viable reason (higher wages etc)
2.The commute from where I am living at the time to the ground must be less than an hour by car or train. If not, I have to move house. (For example, if I am manager of Exeter, I cannot accept a job in Dunfermline unless I move there)
3. Moving clubs must be economically viable. I must be able to rent accommodation for 25% of my weekly wage. In other words I could not move to a club in Monaco on a wage of £150 per week.
4. The usual 'no coaching badges', 'Sunday league footballer' stuff applies
