    @wheelerdeeler You are taking GrIFK for a couple of reasons, firstly because they have never won anything irl, and secondly, because they play in a small city called Kauniainen. It has 9800 people so not many even for us and the area of Kauniainen itself is really small but it’s close to Helsinki so you have potential to tap into the Helsinki market, also the city itself is rich with many rich people and also many Swedish speaking people, the club name is also in Swedish, it's called Grankulla and that's Kauniainen in Swedish so you might get some Swedes through your intake. Good luck, it's not going to be easy!

    Up the Grankulla then. Can I just say this Cup format is all over the shop. Start with a Cup Group Stage in Pre-Season a month before the actual season starts and then you don't play the next round until a 3 weeks into the season.

    I don't even remember how it goes tbh, haven't had any long term saves in Finland! Is FC Santa Claus in either of the playable league btw?

    And these are my Fixtures by the way. Shambles.

    Third Division, so no. Tempted to use the Editor and just give them loads of players to get them promoted until they're playable- but I'll stick with Grankulla for now.

    Hopefully they get promoted!

    I reckon they'll start dominating more now that all of the players have actually spawned in rather than it just being on in the background. Think something like 8 or 9 of the players I'm calling up for Finland play for them.

    Based on my games so far that's a couple of years away (at least). Not even a Professional team at the moment.

    Which N.I youngster has the most potential in FM? thinking it should be Galbraith or Mccalmont.

    Going back to our usual topic of discussion, it appears this lounge doesn’t fit the national trend. Also no Henderson’s sauce which will annoy the Northerners.

    Wigan in administration, first of many I would imagine
    Fleetwood and Doncaster the other 2 that pop straight to mind of clubs that have blown us out the water on certain transfers despite seemingly having no money to do so

    Sad to see. The only slight positive is they believe it'll safeguard the future of the club.

    You have to wonder if the Championship's desire to restart has caused this. Chester have said it'll cost them £30k just for the Conference North playoffs so the Championship restart is gonna cost clubs several million I'd guess.

    Nope shouldn’t have really
    At least I know for our level the EFL were paying for testing and then taking it out of future prize money so not too bad
    I guess taking players off furlough would have an impact but frankly they had a few weeks there on furlough and the clubs should be used to paying players over the summer with no income

    Does that mean they are 10 points deducted then?
  • Hicksy2011

    12 points
    If they somehow get relegated without the point deduction then they get them next year
    If they stay up they get them this year
    So won’t be sorted until after the season ends

    Points deduction will be next season I assume. Normally any administrations after the last Thursday in March count for the next season.

    Ah didn’t realise the EFL were paying for so much. That’s good to see.
