I know the season isn't over, and I'm not one to take anything out in advance, but we're on the verge of becoming THE superior force in the footballing-world. To keep my motivation up I've set a goal and invited another great manager to join me in the quest.

I'm not sure if you've followed my "revenge of the bloods" story, but I feel we're pretty close in our club-situation. How is your youth-setup by now? Have any youngsters worth mentioning come through your own ranks yet? How is the stadium-situation, what's your avg attendence? Will you be needing a new stadium any time soon? It sounds like you're running out of motivation a bit as well, so I'd like to present a goal/challange for you - winning a treable with ONLY homegrown players in your own stadium (one named after you), maby you could set the number to five or so depending on the time you plan spending on your game until FM12... I'll be trying it myself and it would be nice to see someone else try the same!
This challange will be at least as hard as taking Droylsden to where we are today, for two reason: Not only will I have to wait for decent regens to show up in my youth-ranks, I need a lot of them in a limited amount of time so that they can form an intire team togather. I also have no idea what the expansion-limit is on my current stadium, if it's high it could take decades to get my board to build a new stadium, and even then it's not sure it'll bare my name as I have a feeling many players out of todays squad are future Hall of famers
So the time-table is pretty huge and it could take decades until this quest takes physical form (stars from our own ranks showing up or the construction of 'Lennartson Stadium' begins). But if I were to pull it off I'll be proud as can be and I'd dare anyone to take on this challange!
