First off I want to tell you about my aim in Football Manager in my final attempt to get into a single player game. I wanted to choose a team, league, country & continent that are not played by many and in an attempt to create content for my site and inspire others to give it ago. I started the game as realistic as possible, English nationality, enabled attributes masking and passed experience as Sunday league. The continent I went with was Asia if not guessed already ;P so loaded up every country and league in Asia (8 in total inc Australia) to find out the below.
The aim is to conquer every Asian playable league and win the Asian Champions League, I am under sided on how difficult to go make this, sticking with the club I started with in that league to achieve it or work my way up by applying for higher rep jobs and by increasing my own reputation to get offered the job in the first place. Either way I won’t be adding as a new manager each time, I want to start from the bottom and work my way up to glory either with same club or not.
This club I have started with go by the name of Persatuan Sepakbola Siak (PS Siak) an Indonesian 1st Division (3rd Tier) side with 48 other professional & semi professional teams and PS Siak are the only playable amateur club in Indonesia (possibly the continent); they do play in the lowest ranked playable League (54th) in Asia and is why I started with the club & league to fit the title. They have a blank a facilities screen, no staff at all only a chairman and director. They have never won anything according to FM and I cannot find anything about them. Their finances are in an okay status and at the very start of the game a balance just short of £50k. On the plus side I can’t find any expenditure, all 15 players are on amateur contracts so don’t have a wage in fact there are no wages to pay out even me the manager does not pick up a wage. 11 of my 15 players are wanted by other Indonesian clubs so keeping a team together could prove difficult.
More on the league structure. As already mentioned there is a huge 48 clubs taking part but split up into 4 groups of 12, each group the top two teams go into the 2nd phase and 2 relegations. The 2nd phase takes place after completing the 1st phase playing each team home and away in their group in total 22 games. Then the 8 teams go into a knockout phase till the final.
More about the place:
Siak is a regency of Riau Province in Indonesia, they have a population of around 377k. Below is a map of where Siak is placed as well as their Coat of Arms Crest. Also there is a famous landmark of Siak and even Indonesia the Siak Sri Indrapura Palace also pictured below.
