Conquering Europe, step by step.

Hello everyone;

I've not done a career on here in quite some time, mostly due to time restraints, juggling a full time job and a young family, however I found myself intrigued by the Jacobs ladder challenge. Essensially I have to move up the European ranking system step by step by winning one of three possible nations on each rung of the ladder. This appeals to me as it's the sort of save I can play casually in my own time over a long period.

The first step gives me a choice between Andorra, Gibraltar and San Marino;

Great to see you back in the careers section @Rick87 with an interesting challenge, will be following.

Manager Richard Beale
League Primera Divisió
2014–15 Primera Divisió, 2nd


Nearly all the jobs available on day one were in Andorra with just one in Gibraltar and none at all in San Marino, the Gibraltar job was with Magpies in the second division which I went for along with three jobs in Andorra, all in the top flight. I was pleased to be offered the best of those jobs with CF Lusiatanos who are a team formed by, and consisting almost entirely off Portuguese who have emigrated to the country. Currently there is only one Andorran in the squad, it looks as if all the regens that come through the youth system are also Portugese.

LFC were runners up in the league last season after winning it two years in a row in the preceding seasons, which gives me the bonus of Europa League football in my very first season in management. I'm not quite sure how the all Portuguese thing will work in Europe however, unless Lusiatanos are exempt from having a home grown quota of domestic players when registering their squad, anybody come across this before?

We are predicted a third place finish again this season which would be good enough for another crack at the Europa League depending on the national cup winner;

It may hold just 1,000 people but the stadium is something of true beauty;

Did any of the West Ham fans on here make the trip last summer for their Europa tie with Lusitans?

Well here we go then, I know nothing about Andorran football so this is bound to be an experience if nothing else.
I take it your manager has a high rep?

No Sunday league with no coaching badges. It's perhaps unrealistic that an inexperienced foreigner would get one of the top jobs in the country but that's more down to the leagues been only skeletal in what information Classen supplied when creating his megapack.

Still you do hear about complete complete nobody's getting jobs with minnows, Journalist Mark Watson getting the job running the Pohnpei national team by just emailing them springs to mind. Also Andre Villas Boas's getting the British Virgin Islands job just because he once lived in the same building as Bobby Robson.
