This topic marks my first manager story, and it also marks my first FMScout post, so go easy on me guys and try to keep any criticism constructive :).

I will be basing this upon the rules set by Mojodex, who did this challenge (and finished it) on FM-Base.

Mojodex:
will set myself a few rules to follow in order to make it slightly more interesting.
1. I cannot move to or start at a top flight club, With the only exceptions being countries that only have one level I.E. Australia/Hong Kong. Should I choose to manage in one of those leagues I will aim to manage one of the lesser teams.

2. I cannot leave a club until I win that countries top flight, Should I get sacked before I achieve this I must drop down to the league below, unless there is no lower league. In which case I must stay in the same division.

3. I am free to move around when I have won a countries top flight, But I must win the continents version of the Champions League before I move onto another continent. Meaning I should complete the hexagon challenge on my way through this save. I will also try to win the local international tournament while I am on a continent though this is not required I will still do my best to make it happen.

4. No transfer fees over £10m. This will really come into play when I enter Europe.

This is how it works


And I shall load these leagues (EDIT: Removed Europe and the Americas for better load times and more streaming capability, etc)

A legacy begins...

So, After applying for 186 (!!!!) jobs (Jesus Christ, that is a lot for 3 continents), I get these offers back (Mind you I AM using extra leagues because there are too few options for Africa and Asia. Oceania is self explanatory):


However, only one of those catches my eye: Waitakere United, since it is the only Oceanian team there, and I plan to start this great journey in Oceania.


AHHH, WHO'S THAT SEXY BEAST THEY HIRED? ME!
(God, I look horrendous in that picture)

So, we're an Amateur club and the players we bring in will be amateurs too, meaning it shouldn't be too much of a hassle to sign players since it will come down to their decision rather than money.
But still, here is my squad report:


And again in more detail:


So, a few good players, some young'uns with potential, some deadwood and... Wait... Is that...

OH YEAH! We have the Batman on our side! :P

So I meet my backroom staff, subscribe, the Chairman sends me the history, I do all the introductions, yadda yadda yadda.

Now, All I need to do is get my tactics sorted and I'll be playing my first game in just...

109 days...
Great.

Oh well, at least it gives me time to get my team ready.

Tactics and transfer updates coming soon.
Bit of background:

Waitakere United was formed as a special franchise club in 2004 to play in the New Zealand Football Championship (NZFC), New Zealand's top domestic football competition. The team represents 12 member clubs from Mt Albert to the Kaipara.

In the inaugural season (2004/2005) of the NZFC, Waitakere United finished runners-up to champions Auckland City FC but they followed up with a very disappointing 6th place in the next season. In the following season, however, Waitakere finished as NZFC premiers but lost in the grand final once again to Auckland City FC 3 - 2.

Due to the withdrawal of Vanuatu's Port Vila Sharks, Waitakere was given a berth in the inaugural OFC Champions League, for 2007, as NZFC premiers. They finished atop their group, edging out Auckland City and New Caledonia's AS Mont-Dore. They went on to defeat Ba F.C. of Fiji in the final, becoming the first OFC-League champions.

Commins Menapi scored a crucial away goal that proved the difference as the tie finished 2 - 2 in aggregate. Taking this championship qualified United to compete in the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan, where they lost in the 'play-in' match to Sepahan F.C. 1-3.

Waitakere United defended their championship in capturing the 2007–08 OFC Champions League, defeating Kossa FC in the final 6-3 in goal aggregate. During this season, Douglas Field was under extensive renovation forcing Waitakere United to play most of their home fixtures at Fred Taylor Park in Whenuapai.

Waitakere have a notable rivalry with neighbours Auckland City.
And right off the bat...

OH HELL YEAH!
You're managing in New Zealand? Interesting, will follow it man :)
Good luck stopping Chris Bale from getting into fights but otherwise should be an interesting season :)
