I've always wanted to try lower league management, it's something I've seen people do here with great success and recently I've been getting a bit bored of my Burnley save (I won't be stopping it, just taking a break) so I thought what the hell, lets give it a go.

I've also never tried a game starting as unemployed before so everything I’ll be doing is a brand new experience to me, and as always I will be 100% honest with all my results and everything that goes on in my save.

The beauty with starting as unemployed is simple, the club I get given will not be a club I hold close to my heart, for example I chose my Burnley save because they are the team I love, if Barcelona came and offered me the job of course I would decline it because I purposefully chose Burnley to be my team, I could easily start a new game with Barcelona if I wanted to. But in this save if a team in a higher up league offered me the job I would seriously have to consider the move, I have to think what would be best for my career. It makes the save a whole lot more realistic.

I hope everyone enjoys the story, please feel free to comment when ever possible, the support is much needed!

Applying for Jobs


http://www.writersandartists.co.uk/assets/users/admin_1/admin_1-asset-50379dca15a73.jpg

So as I start my adventure I notice straight awat several league & non-league clubs have vacant manager positions available, I’m really not fussy and will accept any offer that comes to me, so I decide to apply for all of them. Surely one of them will want to hire me?

The teams I applied for are:

Coventry
Oldham
Swindon
Lincoln
Luton
Hayes & Yeading

I’m not holding out much hope on the Coventry, Swindon & Oldham jobs, they will probably have a laugh at my application then throw it stright in the bin, why would they want someone with zero experience managing their club?

However the Lincoln, Luton and Hayes & Yeading jobs I’ve got my fingers crossed for, I really think one of these clubs will give me the chance I’m after, and if they do I will grab it with both hands.
I predict you will get the Hayes & Yeading job?

I think you might be correct. (forget the fact that Devil made me a Hayes & Yeading banner!) :P
I think he'll make a shock move to Barcelona to be honest...
Good luck with this...I started off a save unemployed and went to a job in Australia haha but it is really fun seeing how far you can take your career
