Career Foxy is the Boondocks Rogue: Club 4

Recommended Posts

 

Introduction

Welcome to what could be a very frustrating career for me but hopefully it will be entertaining as well for both me to play and you guys to watch. Once I finished my Mitrovic 1kc and 80 Games saves I had planned that I would take a little break from posting careers especially with a house move coming up in the next few weeks but for some reason I had about a week off the game and now feeling raring to go with something new. One thing I have never done during my time playing CM/FM and now FMM is change clubs during a save and for the last few years I have hardly done any LLM so this save is going to tick both those boxes. This will also be my first (and maybe only ever) save using the OME.

This isn’t a new idea as @Ashez created this idea back in the FMM17 days. Back in the autumn when FMM19 was all shiny and new Ash linked me to his version of this and I had a read through and loved the idea and put it on my “to do list”. It got put on the back burner for a while especially as someone else made an attempt at it in the autumn but didn’t get far into it. 

Now it’s my turn to attempt

The Lower League Rogue

The idea of this save is that I start unemployed and start applying for jobs. Once I get a job I have to avoid defeat for as long as I can as once I do get beaten in any competitive game I must resign my post and go back and look for a new club. This cycle continues until I win a trophy which can be a league or cup of any kind.

This is the set up of the save. You can see I have no rep which means I will be struggling to get jobs any higher than the lower reaches of the leagues loaded, I do have a bronze coaching badge though so that may help me get jobs.

When Ashez attempted this he was restricted by the fact that we could only load the lower leagues in one nation so he stuck to just England but that has changed now so I have decided to load 4 of the major leagues in the British Isles. I decided against Wales simply because they have no lower divisions in game so it wouldn’t feel totally like it was a LLM save even though obviously the Welsh league is rank. Also they only have one cup whereas Ireland and Northern Ireland have loads of them so increases my chances of winning something. I would like to visit every country in Britain during this save and of course there are Welsh teams in the English league so maybe a job like Wrexham maybe an option at some point.

I have loaded to the lowest level in every nation.

I used the November DB because that has the most jobs available to me at the beginning of the save with these leagues loaded. I will be applying for everyone of these jobs although Argentina and the USA may not be interested in my services.

Scotland or Ireland might be an interesting place to start but we shall see who offers me a job first as I will take the first offer I get.

I will be posting updates per club I manage and let’s be honest I’m not going to be at many teams for long so I should be able to post fairly regularly with this. I plan that the updates will be short and sweet without huge amounts of detail mainly because I won’t be at clubs long enough for a huge amount of detail anyway I don’t think.

I hope you will enjoy following this tour through the boondocks of British football as I think it is going to be bumpy ride.

Here is @Ashez attempt at this from back in 2017.

Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.

Yes but therapy is very expensive so I just come onto Vibe instead.

Best of luck though.

At the moment I am excited by the constant moving clubs but ask me if it’s cruel in a few updates time if I have had a few losses in the first match 😂

Myself and Mrs F have lived in 10 different houses in our time together so we are seasoned professionals at moving!

I wasn’t talking to you mate, I was talking to your future counsellor after you lose it  in a session once you’ve finished this career 😝

Club 1

I had 10 jobs to go for some more attainable than others and I had decided that I would take the first job that was offered to me. As it turned out it was Shelbourne in the Irish 2nd tier who were the first to recognise my talents and offer me the job.

So it was off to Dublin we went.

I wasn’t joining a team in form which isn’t a big surprise if they were looking for a new gaffer.

Saying that though I take over a club that is 2nd in the league level on points with U.C.D. so this could be a quick career if I can keep us from defeat in the final 9 games of the season and win the league.

We made an excellent start and I was starting to think this might be a very short career as we won our first 4 league games.
What I hadn’t factored in was any cups. We needed penalties to beat Drogheda before we cruised past St Mary’s but this set up a tie with Premier Division Dundalk.

We beat Drogheda in our next game but that was the end of the line for our time at Shelbourne.
 
The Defeat
No complaints as we got outclassed by a better team.

How We Left It
 
We had a good run at it with 7 straight wins albeit one was thanks to penalties and we left them top of the league.

And so we resign from our first club. No doubt the first of many

It was a nice little run that got my hopes up until I drew Dundalk! I was hoping that the Senior Challenge Cup was an all lower league affair but no such luck.

Oh I’m sure it will be the first of many clubs but maybe not “decent efforts”!

Cheers.

Always had a soft spot for Shelbourne in my family, so good work. I've got a feeling you will end up completing this challenge quickly, actually.

I was surprised that they were in the 2nd tier as even with my very limited knowledge of domestic Irish football they are one of the teams I have heard of.

Might he quick if I get a lucky break towards the end of the season and get a job with a team in a final or on the verge of winning a league.

Not the start I expected to this career! It was always going to be tough against a top division side though. I’m glad it’s not over quickly, let’s put it like that! 😛

Just that you were damn close to winning a trophy. Had the side been eliminated in the cups before you took over then the league title was a certainty. I expected a side that was battling relegation lol

The thing was I actually forgot that Ireland is a summer league and that they would be half way through the season when I took the job. I had decided I would take the first job offered and I didn’t check league position or any details at all really just clicked accept.
