My New Story is….

Hey FMS Readers!

Firstly, a MASSIVE thank you for all your suggestions, I can’t believe the amount of comments I received so again THANK YOU!

I knew I could count on you guys from the inspiration I needed and I’m pleased to announce that I have selected the team that I will manage for my new FMS Story.

Drum Roll Please….

 

Yes I will be managing CD Tenerife. The reason behind the decision was partly down to Kevin’s comment about Local Team, Favourite Vacation or Second Language…when I started to research into our favourite holiday destination, I was amazed to find that Tenerife were not in Liga Adelante, but further down in the division below, Segunda Division Group 1. Now you might be thinking hang on thats not going to take him very long to achieve something with them and you’d be right but, I have a few twists for this story…

Twist 1

Upon reaching a respectable League position in La Liga, I will be changing the Transfer policy so that I will only be able to signing players with Spain Nationality or Dual Nationality.

Twist 2

Upon winning the La Liga, which will be tough task on its own. I will then attempt to only use Tenerife Based Players…how about that for a twist. Obviously substantial upgrading with have to take place on the clubs facilities, Junior Coaching etc. Hopefully this will also aid in helping the financial state of the club. As with all story everyone does the overall goal is obviously World Domination but I’m hoping that the twists will make this an amazing challenge.

If you have any questions/queries/comments, please feel free to post them below.

Regards

Martin

Very good choice !
I didn’t know Tenerife felt to segunda division. O.o
And no,it’s not easy at all cause barca and real ar so hard to beat and it will take a lot of seasons to win the liga bbva

Good luck mate, went to Tenerife few years ago, did u go up mount tidie, pretty cool up there! The challenge of only buying spanish and then acadamy players will make the challenge harder as it goes on which is key to you sustaining a save

Good luck with the new story mate, the challenge could be tough without those twists but they’ll make it an epic save as opposed to the usual 5-6 season save with a little luck.

Just bringing Tenerife up to La Liga is going to be quite a good challenge, but once you have the twists kick in, especially the second one, it’s going to very interesting.

Good luck.

Wow! That sounds like its going to be huge fun, and a great challenge after the first few years!

I’ve been a silent reader for some months now and really enjoyed reading all the previous story’s. It’s been a huge source of motivation for me, and I’m really looking forward to this new story.

Good luck Martin! :)

Seems like an interesting challenge Martin, and with those twists added it could be quite tough. Good luck!

Thats a good idea!! I like the spanish based player bit and the Tenerife player bit will be very tricky to maintain a top spot so I’ll be reading!

martin, i think you chose a great challenge to begin with. the first twist is totally doable, though it is very hard. you will have to keep a close eye on both real and barcelona’s youth team to try to sign their best young players.

the second one is a colossal challenge if you took it from the very fist season. if you wait until you have some money to splash on the academy, well, it becomes only extremely hard to fulfill. so, that ought to be a great story!
keep up!

Great idea Martin, the same thing happened to Real Murcia (my favourite Spanish team). Relegated from Liga BBVA to Liga Adelante and then one further all in the space of a few seasons.

Sounds like an interesting story.

Glad you took the idea of only sign local players – signing British players would be daft since you’re playing in spain. Interested to see how this effects the overall results.

The hardest part about the only signing Spanish players will be that your favourite players will be your foreign players. Bound to happen!! Haha good luck anyway mate.

Nooo!

You stole my Real Union idea. :(

Its fine of course! Am so happy that someone except me is managing in Spain and Tenerife is great team.

I like the idea of changing your transfer policy, I really was planning on doing the exact same thing with Real Union so am very interested to see how you get on.

Am looking forward to your first post, good luck!!
