So along with my current long term Arsenal save i want to try some lower league management so will have a go in the Irish First Division.
I had a short lived time as Plymouth Argyle but enjoyed playing the save with less emphasis on a detailed story. This save will be similar in that i will screenshot fixtures and so forth and try to power through the first few seasons to make Limerick dominant.

I am undecided on whether or not to play this on FM Classic something i havent tried yet, What do people think? I wont be starting the save until i get home from work tonight so let me know.

I have a few aims for the story some dependant on if i use FM Classic.

Win the Irish Premier Division
Play In Europe
Make The Champions League Group Stages
Have a Player at the Club for 10 years
Regenerated Son



Right guys let me know what you all think and whether or not i should start a lower league team.
Thanks

Aha! My local team. I'll be following this if you start it up.
Go Full version mate, get the most out of the save.

Note for ya: If you want realisim in this save, Limerick are due to move into the Market Fields (8000 seated stadium) next season. Was supposed to be built and ready for the 2013 season but it's behind scheduled so Munster Rugby let them use Thommand Park for this season since Jackman Park is a dump!

January 2012 - Transfer Window

We made two signings a couple of youngsters on free transfers for the future to add to our squad as we dont have any reserves and only 4 players in the youth team.

We get knocked out of two cup competitions this month but theres still another one to contend with next month but the more pressing matter was shipping 6 goals in 2 games.
I decided to change the tactic after the second 3-3 draw and we have looked better at the back and two clean sheets have done well for my battered defence.

Top of the table after 9 games in this rather small league as theres only 19 games left for the season.

Old Man Foley tops the goalscoring charts but im not sure how long he can keep playing consistently at his age!

We actually win a cup match! But we lose to Finn Harps again looks like we are going to need the playoffs if this continues.

Still top by a point not quite at the halfway stage but as long as we get top 3 i dont mind.

Some of you may have noticed we have a player called Robbie Williams a LB made famous on Soccer Saturday by Stelling!​

A win, a draw a loss, our small squad is starting to tire and its showing in the performances, i will be happy when the youth intake comes around just to fill the squad out nobody has to be that good.

View attachment 380408

Still top but only by a point just past the halfway mark of the season with 13 games to go and August looking the busiest month.

Nice to see you still sitting at the top! Fingers crossed when your youth take comes you'll get a couple of decent players as you do see a few every now and then coming from Ireland

I think the whole youth intake will be good enough to take over this bunch of old pensioners! Thanks for following
