Finally a save I am enjoying. I downloaded the England level 10 database created by @TheFMEditor85, and I decided to start a save with my hometown club who just happen to be right at the very bottom of the database in level 10 and the Northern League Division 2. That team is Chester-le-Street Town. The town has a population of just over 24,000 of which I am one of them and the town was once home to the body of St Cuthbert. Anyway enough of the history, the team are known as the The Cestrians and play in a Blue and White hooped kit at Moor Park just off the A167, the side was expected to finish in 4th having been relegated from Northern League Division 1 last season. Made a canny few signings in my first season, of course being part-timers and all signings being non-contract meant I wasn't bound by transfer windows so it was good and simple, Did absolutely nowt in the cups, got knocked out first round in FA Vase and 2nd round in Northern League Cup but I wasn't too bothered as my main aim was always the league and starting my long upward climb. The league went very well, did better than expectations, couldn't do noowt about Durham City who just dominated the league, maybe if I had a better defence things might have been different but I got promoted so I'm chuffed with that.
hell? heaven? Wherever it goes it is starting in the Netherlands in the Dutch second tier, the Eerste Divisie, also known as the Keuken Kampioen Divisie for sponsorship reasons (ironically keuken is Dutch for kitchen). Anyway I start at a side who I have managed with a reasonable degree of success in past versions in SC Telstar based in the city of IJmuiden (and yes that is an internal capital letter, it is a diagraph considered a ligature or a single letter). Anyway Telstar are expected to finish 15th, have very little money and not the best of squads. So I had to scrimp and save, competition bonuses were very small (first time I done that) so I could at least have money to spend on signing on fees etc.
So I gave up on my alphabet game, for now, and started a game with Ajax on the eve of the "full release" and I shall be continuing with this for the time being. Ajax qualified for entry to the Champions League last season and started in the Best Placed 3d Qualifying and I was given the target of making the group stages which I have done. Tough group, doubt I will make it out of the group stage so will be aiming for 3rd place and Euro Cup entry and counting anything else as a bonus.
