Career Rags to Riches [LLM Career Challenge] S7

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

Hello guys, my name is Avengiz and I'm new to this forum. Been checking this forum out for about a month but just recently made this account so I could post my FMM Career. 

Started playing FMM for the first time about 2 months ago. Otherwise I've played FM 12-17 and then stopped because I didn't really have the time for it anymore. But the urges came back so I had the get the FM fix in a different way so here I am.

For this Challenge I've decided to load 4 different countries (which is the limit) and pick the worst team in the lowest division and make them a power house in a country by winning the top league three times in a row. When I've acheived that I can move on to the next country. And the 4 countries that will be in this Challenge is Scotland, Korea, Spain and Australia.

Annan Athletic

I've chosen the first team and I will start with Annan Athletic in the Scottish 4th Tier. They have "okay" economy and poor facilities so that will be a good beginning.

1st Season:

Ladbrokes League 2

I barely had a transfer budget and we were already at the limit with the wages so I had to try and sell some players and maybe get some decent quality free transfers.

After being done with the transfers I first started playing with a 4-4-2 but we couldn't even get a win and just kept losing. So I decided to switch to a 3-5-2 because the wide defenders where literally crap at everything. After that we went on ti win 10 games out of 11.

Tactics:

After finishing 4th in the League at one of the playoff spots we nearly got promoted in the 1st season but lost in the final qualifying match against Edinburgh City. This was really unlucky after turning the season around like we did. For the next season I think we will have to make a second tactic to vary between, but otherwise I will continue to play this system and hopefully get some better players.

Interesting Players:

I don't have that many interesting players to report about right now but I will show you the best prospects for the moment.

Antonio Manuel Casas

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200629_194953_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.495381cd061b11dd56516c291a9310d4.jpg

Antonio Manuel Casas is a 20 year old Spanish ex Real Madrid player I got on a free transfer. He is already top class for this division but I think he got the chance to improve alot also and perhaps follow us up in the Divisions. He managed to get 12 goals and 3 assists in 29 games.

Scott McLean

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200629_194959_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.7ee56247f69b6254cbc55cbfd63da1b1.jpg

Scott McLean is a 22 year old Scottish winger who joined us on a free transfer from Queens Park. He is already top class for this division and managed to get 4 goals and 9 assists in 43 games. He will be interesting for us in the future.

Christian Nade 

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200629_202007_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.541b7645dc9ece874e2995c7a0e25844.jpg

Christian Nade is a 35 year old french striker who was already in the club when I arrived and who probably played his final season because his stats are just awful and he aint getting any better. But he was the best player for us this year managing to get 15 goals and 7 assists in 40 games.

Niall McGachie

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200629_195015_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.e2162a72b8d03986d87347061f9bf32d.jpg

Niall McGachie is a 17 year old Scottish striker that I picked up from the reserves and gave a contract to because his stats we're looking pretty good for that age and he might be good for us in the future. 

That was all for the 1st season. Next year I am looking to win the League and advance to the 3rd Tier of Scotland. I hope you guys will follow my Journey!

Pre-Season 2 - Annan Athletic

Ladbrokes League 2

Welcome to Season 2. This time we will be targeting the 1st position in the League and we've made some good transfers this summer so I think it will be no problem. I've checked out the other teams in the same division and we have the most quality. If there is any team that will Challenge us then it is Forfar which we managed to beat twice in the playoffs last season.

Transfers:

We managed to sell players for about 500 000 euros which went directly to expanding the wages for some free transfers. We managed to sign some interesting young players like Tunji Akinola & Rico Quitingo for free and Kai Fotheringham which cost us 40k.

Tunji Akinola

Tactics:

This year I've also created a 3-4-3 tactic which I will use together with the 3-5-2 tactic we used last season. This will make us able to switch it up if we hit bad form or just want to exploit a weakness in the opposition

3-4-3

Season 2 - Annan Athletic

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200629_095745_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.b929fb49acbe1eea73cda7477eaa3e2f.jpg

So we managed to win the League pretty comfortably with 86 points which was 27 points ahead the 2nd team Forfar. Antonio Manuel Casas became the Leagues highest goalscorer with 29 goals and Scott McLean managed to get 14 assists and had the highest average rating. Next season we will play in the 3rd Tier of Scotland also known as Ladbrokes League 1 and I think with some good signings och we will be one of the top teams fighting for promotion.

  • Tunnock's Wafer Cup: Second Round

Has developed pretty good and and has potential for more growth. Became the highest goalscorer in the League.

Scott McLean

Has turned green in both Crossing and Dribbling which surely provided many of his assists. Our best player this season which proves his quality.

Niall McGachie

For some reason I'm getting attached to this talented player that was a gray regen sitting in the reserves and now he has developed alot and even got 6 goals in 16 games and I will start him more regurarly next season.

Now I'm preparing for the 3rd season in the 3rd Tier of Scotland. I think I atleast should be able to manage a play-off spot.

Nice couple of seasons so far. Some interesting players and that Casas looks like he’ll turn into a decent player in a few years, hopefully you can keep him.

Good luck next year in League 1.

Pre-Season 3 - Annan Athletic

Ladbrokes League 1

Welcome to Season 3. We are newly promoted to the 3rd Tier of Scotland and I feel we have a strong chance to reach one of the playoff spots this year. I've checked out the other teams and quality wise we should be one of the top teams of this division and maybe we could even challenge for the titel with the right signings.

We managed to sell some players and got an extra 400 000 euros where most of it will go to wages for free transfers. I think we did very well signing a bunch of new exciting players like Ross MacIver, Anthony MacDonald and Alfie Whiteman. We also got some talented prospects that I think will be great in the future.

Good Signings:

And we are done with season 3 where we managed to win the League and get a consecutive promotion to Ladbrokes Championship the 2nd Tier of Scotland. We finished on 74 points which was 10 points ahead 2nd placed Ayr. It was pretty even until the last couple of games and then we just went far ahead. My favourite player Niall McGachie became the leagues top goalscorer with 21 goals while Antonio Manuel Casas only scored 15 goals. Scott McLean took home the most assist (12) in the League with Niall McGachie not far behind with 9 assists. Next season I'm not sure we will get promoted again but I will try my best to maybe get a mid-table position.

Niall McGachie has developed really good this year and were our best player. Antonio Manuel Casas also developed and is pretty solid at the front. Otherwise we got some good players to help us achieve our goals in the 2nd Tier of Scottish football. 

I'm excited to play Championship football and I think it might be more difficult next season. Happy to have promoted twice already and I would be very happy if I managed to get promoted again. See you in the next update and thank you for following my journey!

Pre-Season 4 - Annan Athletic

Ladbrokes Championship

Welcome to Season 4 of my LLM Career Challenge and after two consecutive promotions we are now in the 2nd Tier of Scotland, the Ladbrokes Championship. I dont really think we have a chance to win this division but with the right signings we could be able to reach a playoff spot. The best team in this League has players that have the same wage as of my whole starting eleven.

Transfers:

Did not sell as much players as usual but we managed to get 220k euro for one player. This transfer window was not as exciting as usual but we got some pretty talented prospects for the future and upgraded the midfield with Reegan Mimnaugh and Ross Callahan.

Tactics:

We are still using the same tactics as last season, hopefully they can get us a third consecutive promotion. 

What are your predictions for this division? Also thanks to everyone following my journey, I hope you like it! 😊

Another great season with promotion. You’re flying through the leagues and hopefully you can gain promotion to the SPL next season or if not at least build the foundations so you can get up the year after. Keep it up.

I'm think you will make the play offs and gain promotion then the hard work begins, as Celtic & Rangers are miles ahead of the rest of the Scottish teams.

That would be great! 

Yeah they are, Celtic is dominating through and has won every year except one since the game started.

Season 4 - Annan Athletic

Spoiler

Wow! Season 4 is over and once again we win the League and get a promotion. It was actually Hamilton who was in the lead for most of the season that just dipped in the last 10 games. Niall McGachie became the top goalscorer in the League with 25 goals having Antonio Manuel Casas in third place with 17 goals. Scott McLean took home the most assist yet again but shares the spot with 2 others. Next season we will be playing in the Ladbrokes Premiership against opponents like Celtic, Rangers and Hearts and I hope we can keep ourselves from being relegated.

We managed to win the Tunnock's Wafer Cup against Hamilton in the final on extra time. This feels like a little bonus and revenge from last year when we lost the final. Now we won't play in that Cup anymore because we will be in the Premiership.

I am really impressed by Niall McGachie who was our best player again, but it seems he have hit his peak now and so has Scott McLean. Rico Quitingo has developed nicely and is one of our key players.

So we have finally reached the top tier of Scotland and I think the real challenge starts now. How will I be able to fight in a League where the average wage for a player is what I spend on my starting eleven? How long will it take til I overthrow Celtic from dominating the League and will I be able to win it three times in a row? Follow my Journey to see!

Pre-Season 5 - Annan Athletic

Ladbrokes Premiership

Welcome to Season 5 and the Ladbrokes Premiership. After three consecutive promotions we are finally at the top of the tier and now we look to become a power house and throw Celtic of the throne. To be able to win the League we will have to get atleast 90 points because that is where Celtic has averaged the last couple seasons. For our first season in the Premiership I would be happy just staying clear of the relegation zone and get a solid foundations which we could build from.

Transfers:

Screenshot_20200702_163200_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.4ba2475b5d2051a9cecca4c3822e316c.jpg

Sold alot of players for 2.6 million euro and made some extra cash but did not really spend them because it was really difficult to find any good quality players with the low reputation our team has. Instead I scouted for some hot prospects that might be decent players in the future. 

Top 3 Signings:

Kiko Mas

These are my best signings for this transfer window and they look like they could become really good Premiership players in the future. Kiko Mas might become a world class player if I should trust my assistant manager

Tactics:

Using the same tactics as last season with the addition of a new 3-4-1-2 tactic.

Season 5 - Annan Athletic  

Ladbrokes Premiership

It's not so easy winning the League anymore but we avoided relegation. It looked like it was going to be a battle but we managed to get in the clear and got ourselves a decent 8th position. Celtic won the league ofcourse for the 4th time in a row. Niall McGachie managed to become the 6th highest goalscorer in the division. He also got the most assists for us and shared the 7th highest assist spot in the league. This is a good foundation for the coming seasons and next year we will be aiming for Europa spots.

  • Betfred Cup: Quarter Final
  • Scottish Cup: Final

Ouch, we managed to get through all the way to the finals were we lost against Aberdeen with 1-2. It would be really nice to win the Cup and get out to Europa but I will consider it as positive because then we won't need a larger squad for next season and instead we can focus on getting some decent quality players.

Interesting Players:

Screenshot_20200702_185046_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.ae4cd12e64a0f0f12e232951fa787c1c.jpg

Niall McGachie became our top goalscorer and assist man in the League but he is not developing anymore. I still like him tho and he will keep getting play time even if we got better players which I hope for next season we do. Rico Quitingo looking really good tho and Antonio Manuel Casas is still a good player in this League.

I have forgot to take pictures of my manager profile but I seem to have hit green in all aspects. Reputation is only regional and that might be why I don't get any job offers which I found odd with my recent promotions.

To bad we didn't win the cup. Next year I hope we can get into one of the Europa spots. It will be difficult to stop Celtics reign of terror anytime soon tho.

Season 6 - Annan Athletic
Ladbrokes Championship

Unfortunately I accidentally saved over the season 6 save going into season 7 and I did not take any screenshots. Blame it on the goose. 🙄 But I will try to summarize it with text instead even tho I do not remember that much of it. I'm so sorry about this.

Anyways, welcome to Season 6. This year we improved the squad spending about 400k euros on one player while the rest was free transfers. I think we managed to get like 4 million euros of selling players also. The team were looking abit better than the year before being able to having more interesting players desiring to join us. 

Spoiler

Screenshot_20200702_190649_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.e6cc5eb17f5f2303e1398761e2bd6649.jpg

At the end we managed to end the season in 3rd place which is quite good. The big surprise this year was that Hearts won the league 1 point ahead of Celtic at 89 points and therefore ended Celtics reign of terror. Otherwise I am really happy about this season and next year we will be playing in Europa going into the 3rd Round of Euro Cup 2. Our best player this season was Stefan McNiff who joined us as a hot prospect two seasons ago managed to score 20 goals. I think he will be one of our most important players next season If I can hold onto him.

Steve McNiff

a good read so far it seems a really good idea trying to make powerhouses all over the world. it will be good to look back and see if the team you brought to the top can maintain their status. that’s what i always enjoy looking at.

Pre-Season 7 - Annan Athletic

Ladbrokes Premiership

Going in to our third season at the Premiership and now we are also playing out in Europa for the first time. Last season Hearts ended Celtics reign of terror and became the League champions. This year I am hoping to get some good signings and our youngsters in the team are becoming quite good so I'm really looking forward to this season.

We cleared out a bunch of players, most of them left during the winter transfer window but we managed to sell for a total of 17,5 million euros while not spending anything on transfers ourselves. The funny thing is that it was Burton who basically bought most of our players.

Our most interesting players we got must be Dominick Calvert-Lewin, Russ McRorie and Robbie Chalmers which will strengthen the squad.

Robbie Chalmers look like he could become a beast! 

Tactics: 

Changed tactics at the end of last season with some good results and I've been building the squad around these new tactics. The two tactics I will use is first a 2-1-4-1-2 system and the second one is a 2-1-3-2-2 system. Never played like this before so it's going to be exciting to try out.

2-1-4-1-2

And we are the champions! It took us seven seasons to get from Ladbrokes League 2 to become the Ladbrokes Premiership winners in the 2025/2026 campaign. It was a tight race and Celtic was always in 1st place until there were 5 matches remaining and they went on the lose 3 of theirs only winning 1 while we won all of ours. I am really proud of the team who was been amazing this season. Now we only have to win 2 more times in a row until we can move on to the next country. But the tricky part with this challenge is that I have to win the league three times in a row, otherwise I have to start all over. We had some really good development for our players this season and that's one of the reasons we could finish the League as strong as we did.

Cups:

  • Betfred Cup: Semi Final
  • Scottish Cup: Winners
  • EURO Cup 2: Semi Final

We took home the double winning the Scottish Cup and finally got revenge against Aberdeen who defeated us in the final 2 seasons ago. Unfortunately we went out in the Euro Cup 2 semi finals against Monaco who destroyed us in the return leg after us getting a win in the first leg. Still no luck in the Betfred Cup either losing in the Semi Final against Kilmarnock.

Wow.. The squad is really looking good right now and we have several interesting players. The young scottish striker Stefan McNiff became the best goalscorer in the league with 20 goals while our winger Xavi Canales also win with 22 assists. Robbie Chalmers is looking really good too as does Kiko Mas. Niall McGachie is still the coaches pet and managed to score 16 goals in 21 games which is pretty solid. It will be hard to hold on to our players next season because some of them already wishes to leave, but I will see what I can do to keep them in the team.

Everything is still green except the domestic player bias which went down to 14. Finally my reputation has become National atleast but still not getting any job offers.

This has been a fantastic season and now our prospects is becoming really good players. Next season we will be participating in the Champions League and it will be fun to see how we cope against the best teams in the world. We already did pretty well in the Euro Cup 2 so I think we can get to the play offs perhaps. Fun fact is that the board decided to build a new stadium and I got to name it, so now Annan Athletic is playing at AA Arena with 30000 capacity. Before we have played at Galabank Stadium which we expanded from 2500 capacity to 15000.

Wow dude, gotta say, this is a really interesting read! Just wanted to know if you took a break from this or if you stopped posting altogether. Would really be a shame. Also I want to know how you came up with the tactics. Did you make them from scratch?
