My name is Jack.

I have been playing FM ever since you could get It for Xbox 360 and Marcelo was at Fluminese before joining Real Madrid.

My past achievements include winning the league with Sunderland and the Champions League with Norwich.

Since 2013 I sadly lost my passion for FM, returning last year when I purchased FM18.

So the inspiration for this save; which will commence tonight, is Leicester City's story and journey to Premier League glory.

After my recent Aberdeen save, I have realized I wanted to manage someone with abit more room to improve the squad. Whilst Aberdeen was great fun, if you follow my other story; The Enigma, That Is, FM, you will find why I made the difficult decision to move on.

I don't require a large Transfer Budget at all; its just I wasn't able to progress with Aberdeen with the Chairmans lack of funds and in my opinion, ambition.

So after further extensive deliberation, if all goes to plan tonight; I will be starting a new save with Ipswich Town FC.

Squad Evaluation

So as i start with Ipswich, this years short term target is to avoid relegation.

The long term target is to win the Premiership.

After evaluating my squad, its clear that we have to be one of the worst squads in the championship.

I have to say i am shocked at how poor most of the overviews are.

I would go as far as saying that this side couldn't even get promoted out of league 1.

This will be a tough season; first of all we have 0 goals upfront with no real goal threat.

I am also struggling to discover any available strikers so any suggestions would be fantastic.
Pre Season

We were pretty uninspiring due to lack of goals. Walters is our best bet at the moment.

Whether Sears with his 9 on finishing can contribute this year, we shall see.

After our final Pre Season season fixture, im starting to have some belief.

We killed Livingston a whopping 10-0!!!!
