having done a few trial runs to test the new game and never lasting longer than november i decided to get stuck in and start my first proper adventure on FM13. i started my career in slovenia and will see where the game takes me. cant say i will have the time to post regularly as i'm busy with uni and being on a proper course (chemistry), means i dont get a reading week and have more than 4 lectures a week, but i will try and update as often as possible.
Anyway, i decided to start with Maribor, the current slovenian league champions, as i am not overly familiar with slovenian football and tbh i was intrigued when they held tottenham to a draw a few weeks ago.
in summary, no real stand out transfers. stalteri and del horno were brought in to add depth to the full back positions and verbauwhede was recommended when i hired a couple of new scouts. the rest were the usual youth players and prospects.
up to press i sit 4th in the league, 4 points behind the leaders with a game in hand, so well placed to push for the title the board so desperately wants to retain. i managed to stumble through the early qualifying rounds of the champions league and eventually succumbed to anderlecht in the play off, forcing me into the europa league and a group consisting of napoli,psv and helsingborgs (no high hopes). also won the slovenian super cup and sit on a 2-1 advantage going into the second leg of the quarter finals of the slovenian cup.
i will start producing monthly updates as of now, first post is a basic round up of whats been 'achieved' so far
