Well, it’s time for the first proper update in the Racing Luxembourg save at the end of the first season. In case you missed the opening post of this save, I’ve downloaded an edit from the SI forums allowing me to play in Luxembourg, which is an unplayable nation in Football Manager 2016. I’m planning a long term project where I play With Club, For Country and focus on signing and nationalising players to play for Luxembourg, and hopefully improve the standing of football in Luxembourg on the continental and international scenes. It’s certainly not going to be an easy task, and before I can even think about making an impact across Europe, I have to consider making an impact in the Luxembourg National Division, and become the best team in Luxembourg.
Firstly, when playing in an unplayable nation, you have to populate the nation with players, so whilst loading up the game I selected the option to add players to playable teams, meaning that the world I’m playing in is already full of regens (a part of FM I love, scouting unknown players, and judging them), and my team had several of them, some of whom were at a good enough standard, and some of whom were far below the standard required, even at this low level. Because of the rules regarding non-contracts, I was able to release these players for nothing, and go out and scout replacements who would be available for nothing. It’s a lovely plus point about playing at such a low level.
