I decided to work on this save while I wait for a Yugoslavia database to appear for FM21 so here we are.

The team I have chosen to play as is FK Zvizdar, a small village team in the 10th tier of Yugoslavia located near the town of Ub. As a young club, there is no history at all, especially now that I am using the Yugoslavia database among others. Thanks to @Heppy91 for providing the 2D kits that will be used for the whole series.

This is my manager Illijas Vlasnica , a native of the village of Zvizdar who spent time as a coach before making the step up to a club manager. As such, I have some coaching licenses, but that's it.

As we are starting at the very bottom, we first need to establish what the league rules are for this season. Let's take a look.

Interesting things to note are that we aren't allowed to sign anyone not from the EU, we play each team 4 times as each league group only has half the teams as the other regional league, and there is no relegation as this is the bottom. As our team is in one of the 9 team groups, we will have 32 league games rather than 36. Now let's take a look at our summer transfer movement.

Nearly all of the teams in this division as well as the divisions above have bare bones squads, so lots of movement has been happening over the weeks. Since free transfers can be signed at any time, any transfers past this post will be covered during the winter, and any transfers past the winter will be covered at the end of the season.

Now let's take a look at our fixtures. 7 matches have been played from the middle of July, which is the start of the league season, to the closing of the summer 2019 transfer window.

League Matchday 1

The opening day of the season came at home to the Kosovan side FC Galaksia, who we handily beat 8-1 with seven different goalscorers.

League Matchday 2

We travel to Istra to face Istra Tar in our first away match. It was another destruction, as we put seven past the home team, including four goals in the final five minutes of the game.

League Matchday 3
https://fm-base.co.uk/attachments/league-m3-jpg.521297/

We welcomed Kastrioti Ferizaj in the first match in August. It was a pretty quiet game compared to the first two games, with us winning only 3-1.

League Matchday 4

Lipjani gave us a wake up call when they scored two goals in the dying minutes of the game to bring the score 3-2. We dominated the entire game, but we are reminded that complacency can still bite us when we least expect it.

League Matchday 5
https://fm-base.co.uk/attachments/league-m5-jpg.521302/

Due the scant amount of information about the previous teams we played, they have no kits and played in blue, forcing us to use our third kits. We finally play in our home kit against the black kits of FK Spartmani, who we beat 3-0 comfortably.

Yugoslav Cup 2nd Round
https://fm-base.co.uk/attachments/cup-2nd-rnd-5-6-jpg.521303/

We enter the 2nd round of the Cup with a game against the 9th tier side Cukovec '77, who we easily beat 5-0.

League Matchday 6
https://fm-base.co.uk/attachments/league-m6-jpg.521304/

Our final game of August was a big 1st vs 2nd clash away to ZSK Valjevo. We done all the hard work in the first half as we beat them 3-1.

League Table going into September

We're building a healthy gap over our nearest rivals in the opening months of Season 1. That's it for today, I will return soon with September fixtures.
