We may have just passed Halloween, but something scary is still going down in Wearside… if you’re a Sunderland fan that is! We visited Wearside at the start of last season’s tour and with everything going on at the club, it seems an interesting enough place to return. Stop 1 of ‘SUSIE On Tour 2018’ see’s us visit the aptly named 'Black' Cats who seem to be finding EFL Championship life rather tough both in real life and in this save.

https://i.imgur.com/chdZvCx.png?1https://i.imgur.com/iWvk0KG.png?1https://i.imgur.com/ll9uazY.png?1

Last season you had 6 months to keep the Black Cats up, but Mr Moyes couldn't do what many of our players managed and so now 12 months down the line, your challenge is to try and bring them back. After an average start to the season, can you steady the sinking ship? Can you make the most of your limited funds in the January transfer window? And most importantly... can you push this side on to bounce straight back up to the promised land?

https://i.imgur.com/82DMzmz.png

12 months on from where we picked up Sunderland last year, we're expected to do it all over again, however this time its going to be harder, they've struggled to adapt to life in the Championship and come 1st January 2018 find themselves down in seventeenth place and eleven points outside the playoffs with twenty one games to go, plenty of time to turn it around.

https://i.imgur.com/7ZYwd7m.png

On paper the squad should be doing so much better however for some reason are struggling. You've got the January transfer window to use all your might to get the dead wood out the door and bring in some fresh faces who can turn this disastrous season into a season of good cheer for Sunderland fans.

And you are going to have to sale before you buy if you wish to upgrade the squad this January, the finances are awful, the clubs in debt and the wage budget is thin. On top of that, the club are already out the Carabao Cup and face fellow Championship side QPR in a week in the FA Cup. Its all in your hands.

Personally I'd just keep to the screenshots requested at the end of challenge summary. Unless something really annoying or outstanding happens.
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

True. well i am -5 already lost 2-1 to QPR in the cup
Great!

Going to give this a go while I wait on the full release to start my Celtic save.
Go on then, I'll have a go. Good to be back.

The combination of lack of experience and the need to balance the books makes it a very tough start. No Team Leaders probably isn't helping either....
Anyone actually made any transfers? Got a hell of a shock from the board when they drastically cut the wage budget!

I just got my wage budget cut, I've sent Love out on loan but nobody wants to buy my players and my budgets are too small! Oops...

I guess it's not been too much of a problem so far however, beat Barnsley 2-0 and QPR 3-1; drew one of our rivals Leeds away in the 4th round so gonna be a toughie, will get 5pts for a win if we do get through though!

This is gonna be a tough task with that wage budget cut, pretty much rules out transfers although i've got one loan move lined up, you can't secure anything decent cause you can't pay any wages. Thankfully the squad looks half decent just lacks depth.

Had a frustrating start to this, 2-0 up against Barnsley and dominating them, they had 1 shot in the first half to our 15, second half was polar opposite and ended up conceding 2 late goals to draw 2-2! Then drew 1-1 with QPR, somehow, after N'Dong got sent off! Unbeaten start though I guess.

BTW, did anyone else have issues with the in game screenshots? Mine were completely screwed, tried 4 times then had to use the old school print screen method!
use screen print and paint
Aye screw it, I'm in.

Forgot to post my manager screenshot, hope it is saved properly now @gaz12321 ! Guess I'll find out when I next get on my computer...will post it here as soon as.

Lost Lee Cattermole to injury for 3 months

That's what I done, but my laptop is really old and struggles enough with FM so having to open up paint to save screenshots is a ball ache, so much easier just hitting ALT + F9.
oh yes 22nd after 42 games 3 points adrift lol. The sack is near so is relegation. man i suk at this game.
