Hopefully I will get passed Brann soon. I just hope that Anier wants to stay at Viking

I decided to do one more save before FM13. I wanted something different from anything i've ever tried before and loaded up FM12 with all leagues loaded etc and after searching the different leagues decided to take over Viking FK. The game start date however was June 2011 so the Norwegian league was already 12 (ish) games old. Viking were struggling 2nd from bottom and without a manager so I opted to start with them for realism.
Loving the league at the minute. Glad I stumbled across your reports and found someone else enjoying there spell at Viking. Are you still playing it?
Viking has been struggling in the bottom half for the last few seasons, so it is not a very unrealistic picture of real life. You can say that I am overachieveing with Viking. And if you started in June 2011 I don't think you have Ørnskov or Anier in your squad if I'm right?
I am still playing it, and an update will arrive soon :-)

Im like I KNOW THE BLOOMING TRANSFER WINDOW DATES!!!!!! lol
Luckily both players are in my Viking squad.
Think I know why. Basically I didnt know who I wanted to manage when I started the save. I loaded up all leagues (except Peru lol) as usual with a start date of June 2011. Now because the im using the official updates despite them joining in 2012 I think they are included on my 2011 save simply because the season is half way through by my start date. So there just there like they would be had I choose Jan 2012 as a start date.
Really enjoying the save. Though I can see signing Norwegian players of quality or potential quality may be hard. Saying that though seeing as I can change my squad anytime I please I may sign more overseas players and just re-sort the players on a game by game basis. Maybe thats exploiting the system but its an option lol.
The registration rules are very weird here so I understand that it causes confusion for people who don't know the Norwegian league.
Good to see you're enjoying your save! Are you doing well?
