I can only hope, its looking pretty close at the moment which can sometimes be worse than one team dominating and then you picking off the other team, hopefully if i have a good couple more seasons in europe i may get up to 3rd seed in the group stages which will help massively

Thats really good going, doing it with regens from your own Country too is pretty impressive, whos your best player you have had come through so far?

Not just doing it with my own regens but trying my best to implement them as much as i can. My best player to come through would be this guy. ****** release clauses i had no choice but to sell him.

They look awesome mate, the overall strength of the Irish squad has gone up since i took charge of Limerick but i havent brought any Irish players in myself to make it much stronger, i think the best thing i can do is bring in the young foreigners who may not be good enough for their own countries but could become Irish players like Al Blooshi,

Nice £5m deal on Hanlon! Hopefully Tottenham will train him, never use him and sell him back to you for pennies!

Also, Julian Bruce looks like a great player. High technique and flair! decent speed and physical stats too so could make a lovely winger!

I think I'm going to have to start a similar save! maybe in wales.....I was doing a Cardiff save but it seems to be having technical issues!

Thanks man, Bruce has been good so far, was someone i was looking at loaning in before realising his contract was almost up, Defo should start a save like this, im trying desperately to play it loads as i know when fm 2017 comes out on the beta in a few weeks i will be on that straight away and this will fall by the wayside
