    Signed him for another season in the championship and still doing the business. Managed to keep all the loan signings on for the next season. Got lenihan from hull as a back up for solly and dasilva as he can play left and right. Got afobe from mk Dons as well as idris Kanu from Peterborough and Tyler Blackett from reading.

    Yeah idris Kanu looks quality but all my scouts and coaches are saying he’s 2 star potential, he’s as good as most 22 year olds at 18 and (in my save) has a perfectionist personality ffs. The guys destined to at least be a great championship striker.

    You made many changes to backroom staff etc? also did you keep Kashi?

    Signed some more coaches after promotion, kashi signed a pre contract in January with a French club so I left him in the u23s and signed Derik osede from Bolton as a replacement.
  • Used to be addicted to FM. Hadn't played since FM15 but decided to take the plunge again this year.

    I managed to finish 3rd in the first season with CAFC despite never really being very convincing, mostly due to an amazing set piece record and a few worldies from Holmes and Leon Best (great free signing).

    Unfortunately I got smashed 6-2 in the playoff semi by Wigan. Not sure what happened there! Towards the end of the first season I got taken over by a 'local businessman'. Cracking stuff I though, finally getting rid of Roland. But the new guy has been a disaster. Immediately reduced percentage of transfer revenue to 0%.

    No problem, thought I. I sold Sarr and big Mag to free up some wages. Cashed in on every single clause available (Lookman, Gomez and Konsa who was sold in Jan.) They still refused to even increase the wage budget after repeated requests! So I leaked the story to the press. The board called me in to a meeting and sacked me on the spot!

    Ladies and gentlemen....I’ve found a worse owner than Roland!

    Alan Bowkett bought the club from Roland whilst we were still in League One and didnt give me any money for January. Not to worry I thought. We won the league at a canter, and I was given £3m for the summer. Once wage increases had been factored in it was more like £2m. Not too bad I thought.

    Fast forward to January 1st 2019 and my wage budget has been slashed from £191k a week to £157k a week due to the financial crisis we are in. Where the board was once content with my control over wages they’re now disappointed (hang on mate, you cut the wage budget!).

    We’re £9m in the red for the first 5 months of this season alone, losing around £800k per month at the moment. We’re also £60m in total debt but £40m of that is the club director loan. I’ve just received an email saying that there is a likelihood we will go into administration.

    Brilliant! Don’t buy a club if you haven’t got any money Mr Bowkett!

    With that said we’re currently 12th after 24 games, 7 points off the playoffs and 15 points off the relegation places. I was 6th but after a run of 4 draws and 2 defeats we’ve slipped down the league. But there’s only 6 points between 9th and 16th so it’s really tight.

    The board are still happy with me and I’ve refused countless job interviews from teams like Norwich, Hull, Wolves and Aston Villa. I think we can make the playoffs. I just can’t afford to lose players to balance the books.

    I always seem to get this guy take over on my saves. Never sticks any money in and you end up in the same situation.

    Have never had a tycoon takeover on FM.

    Had a couple of Tycoon Takeovers on FM.

    One with Reading, where i went on to do a Leicester and won the premier league with a pretty decent team but still not as good as the usual lot so was quite chuffed....then played 10 games won 5 drew 1 lost 4 and they sacked me!!

    I had one with Charlton in the championship and was doing really well if memory serves but my laptop died!! Was truly heartbroken haha!!

    Have never had it on a club I have managed on fm but in fm 17 barrow got taken over in one of my saves. Interesting watching how the ai handles it and although they got up to league two, they struggled to get into the play offs. They did have some really decent players though.

    I can see there being only 3 options for me right now:

    1) we get taken over again and I finally get some money
    2) I manage to somehow keep some of my players, have no money to spend and rely on loans/free transfers. We get to the Premier League and the cash injection saves us
    3) we go into administration, get taken over and I either get sacked or we get a 10 point deduction and end up in a relegation battle and I either get sacked or option 2 happens
