    So ... I thought I'd load up the game and get my first club, so that I'd have something to lookforward to while I finish off the "Can't win anything with kids" challenge. No problem, Stalybridge Celtic. Never going to win the Premier League, but not a bad squad to build a reputation with (other than Celtic as the second name), and better than many have managed from the above comments. And then I spotted it .....

    Selected Leagues: ALL league selected but do not select the lower league options. So don't include the English Conference for example and the other leagues that appear in the far right column.
    DOH ! try again

    Applied for every job at the start.. must have got a pretty shit rep as not 1 club offered me a position.. I did manage to get a job eventually with Berwick Rangers.

    This no cash lark is a toughie. But fun

    Started a second time , but still I had the Stalybridge and Gainsborough jobs on offer. Then I twigged that I am using a Tapani patch which changes the Welsh league into Conference North. I'll start again with all leagues, except Wales, selected, but might be worth putting something in the OP for others.

    Good luck! Same club as myself, was going to recommend a couple of players to start with but you're not using them

    Ah yes, good shout! Surprised it wasn't spotted last time, I've added a note to the OP

    Sorted out the league problem and loaded a new game. It looks as if I'll be starting here



    Another **** Celtic !!!!!

    I knew I'd be starting somewhere around the bottom, but this is a hemoroid on the bumhole of the bottom (no offence to Lurgan which I'm sure is a very nice town). Conaty is 18 while the other 2 are 34 and 32. None of them have the stamina to last 90 minutes !

    I guess this is do what I can and build some reputation to win a league with someone else. Can't remember ever playing NIFL Championship (2.21.1 v2 patch) before).

    First though, unfinished business at Krasnodar. I have some incentive to get that done.

    Horrible choice of club mate

    Finish the challenge first so I can actually enjoy your success.

    Oh FFS.. I am using Tapani patch too..

    Guess im going to have to restart the game now.. And I had just finished first season gaining promotion


    Deleted save game.. Started a new one to see "WALES" isnt available to select as a league anyway. Looks like I may have deleted save for no reason

    Ok.. So Welsh league structure/Conference north is implemented into Tapani patch and cannot be turned off if using it for your games.

    Need some further clarification from the boss then before we can go any further.. And to think i deleted my save when i could have continued


    Edit: I have started again.. Hopefully wales will be able to get turned off ingame via selected leagues. Worth a shot.

    If all else fails you always have the option of not taking jobs in the Conference North.

    I'm also using Tapani ... I hit 'select all' and continued, Wales is probably included. Am I good to proceed or do I have to start over?

    I think that is a good compromise. If you have any of the lower leagues selected, just don't use them.

    Hell fire, that was quick toppo! Congrats, you're the first to enter the leaderboard

    To others - Didn't realise you can't deselect Wales? Suppose it doesn't matter either way as you'd only be wasting your own time if you do take over a team in the NPL! Just need to be vigilant!

    First season done and it couldn't have gone any better:



    Best player was probably this guy:



    After an excellent first half to the season, we didn't half nearly throw it away with a horror run in the end though. Out of the last 13 games, we won just 4 of them, losing 8 times!

    That puts me in the 2nd Division for next season but I'm tempted to look around for better jobs, as long as it brings me closer to the top flight title.

    Lajeadense 2015:

    healthy finances at the start allowed me to offer up to 2000/week which was a big bonus in attracting very good players but now it is a bit of a curse. I really don't know what to expect from the financial side of the leagues.

    G done.. Gillingham


    Pretty easy ride tbh. Although during the final weeks of the season we did our very best to throw it all away with several 1-0 losses to teams that have been pretty average all season. Man City did overtake us for a week but that was down to them playing a game or 2 more. I eventually stabilised the team enough to reclaim top spot.




    Clubs/Letters done : Inter Turku, Gillingham.
