Minnows to Mighty is my brand new FM20 career where I aim to take Sola FK of the Norwegian third tier all the way from amateur status to UEFA Champions League winners!

Discussion
Minnows to Mighty is my brand new FM20 career where I aim to take Sola FK of the Norwegian third tier all the way from amateur status to UEFA Champions League winners!

Why Sola FK? 2 reasons...

1. I wanted to attempt the challenge with a club from a country that had never had a team win the Champions League. Norway fits that bill.
2. I wanted an amateur club and what intrigued me about Sola FK is that they are the ONLY amateur club in the top 3 tiers of Norwegian football. An added difficulty element to the challenge as initially I will be an amateur team competing with semi-pro and pro clubs in my league.

Part 1 - S1 A Tough Ask
In part two of this Minnows to Mighty challenge we take a look at how the opening part of the first season has gone as the only amateur club in the top three tiers of Norwegian football. We quickly learn the benefits and soul crushing frustrations of managing an amateur club and we play against Egersund in the league, one of the three fully professional clubs in our division.

Part 2 - S1 Quick out of the Blocks
In part 3 we have a big double header of games! First up is the Norwegian Cup 4th Round tie against top division side, SK Brann, where the minnows try to mix it with the mighty. This is followed up with a league match against bottom of the table, Byasen.

We also take a look at the progress of the challenge so far in what is proving to be a very tight division!

Part 3 - S1 The Big Cup Game
In part 4 we play the biggest game of our season yet in this Football Manager 2020 career! It is the final game of the season and our destiny is in our own hands... just! Can we hold our nerve? Will the amateurs crumble under the pressure? All the hard work of season one comes down to this!

We also take a look at yet more players who have left the club since part 3, the curse of being an amateur team!

Part 4 - S1 Squeaky Bum Time
It's part 5 and all is not quite what it seems! We play our two legged playoff tie against Elverum as we chase promotion to the 2nd tier with our beloved Sola FK, but following the match there is a turn of events that completely takes me by surprise and could throw a huge spanner in the works! Never a dull moment in Football Manager 2020.

Part 5 - S1 The Road to Promotion
Following the disappointment in part 5 realising that we in fact weren't promoted yet, we have a 2 legged tie against Tromsdalen of the 2nd tier for promotion. In this episode we play both legs and find out whether we have defied the odds and won promotion as an amateur team or whether it is another season in the 3rd tier.

We are put on the back foot right from the start of this video with some squad registration issues and wonder whether it is a glitch with the database or just some weird squad registration rule.

Just to keep people aware, it is NOT an issue with the database. I found out following this tie that is IS actually a squad registration/league rule that caused the selection problems. So win or lose, the show will go on!

Part 6 - S1 The Actual Promotion Playoff
In Part 7 we kick off season 2 where we will compete in the Norwegian First Division. As a newly turned Semi-Professional club we have spent the summer recruiting new players for the challenge and also getting our best assets onto contracts. We take a look at some of those new players including one who has over 50 international caps and played for clubs such as Napoli during his career so far.

The budget and expectations are small but join us as we play our first ever competitive match as a semi-pro club against KFUM Oslo. We will need to raise our game if we are going to be competitive this season!

Part 7 - S2 Raising Our Game
In part 8 we play a familiar foe in the Norwegian Cup Third Round as we try to match our cup success of season one by reaching the fourth round. We also take a look at our early season form, some standout performers and the financial situation at the club since turning semi-pro.

Part 8 - S2 A Familiar Foe
Following the disappointment of the cup we attempt to get our league form back on track as we face fellow strugglers Sogndal in the Norwegian First Division. We also review which players may be leaving the club at the end of the season and compare our wage budget to the other clubs in the league.

Can we get a result to kick start our season? Or are we in for a long, stressful season?

Part 9 - S2 Room for Improvement
For part 10 of this Minnows to Mighty challenge in Football Manager 2020 we have a HUGE game. Potentially our biggest game yet. It's the final game of season 2 and we are still in that relegation fight but survival is possible. We do have to rely on other results if we are going to beat the drop but there are still three possible outcomes. 1. Avoid relegation. 2. Go into a Relegation/Promotion playoff. 3. Relegation.

With all three outcomes still a possibility, it really is crunch time.

Part 10 - S2 Crunch Time
Here we go, its the relegation/promotion playoff against Stjordals Blink. Do we have what it takes to overcome them and remain in the First Division? Or will it be a devastating blow and a relegation back to the third tier? This episode features both legs of the playoff!

Part11 - S2 The Playoff
