Welcome to a rather impromptu update, I hope everyone understands where I’m coming from with this post, I’ve spoken to a lot of people over the past few days so please take a read and hear me out.
Some of you will know that I have been offered a new job, this means relocating me and my family 140 mile up North back up to my home town of Leicester, relocating me, my Wife and 3 year old daughter has already been incredibly stressful and time consuming and because of this over the past few weeks I have completely taken my eye of the ball with my Hall of FM-ame series.
When I started this save way back in October I never ever expected to have put out at least 1 post per week all the way up until June. I’ve played 28 seasons, written 36 posts and have loved every minute of it.
That is until now, joining Wolfsburg at the time seemed an amazing idea, we had a great club with a good base and a challenging league, but it has started so well it has frankly been boring, we are smashing everyone and that isn’t what I wanted, I wanted a challenge and some fun.
This has been exacerbated by the fact that when I’m playing I’m not 100% focused due to things going on with what I mentioned above.
People have always told me to do what I want and what I enjoy and to enjoy the game and not take things so seriously. I have spent the past 3 days trying to push through with Wolfsburg but to be honest it’s not enjoyable.
I’ve had an amazing time with this save, I’ve topped 3 Hall of Fames, Switzerland, Russia and Austria, it’s been unbelievable!
So the past few days I’ve spoken to some people close to me and everyone has said the same thing, do what I enjoy, play the save for ME and if I do that people will enjoy it.
This save is not ending, I just don’t want to be at Wolfsburg anymore, I want some fun, I want a challenge, I want to curve-ball this save and just enjoy myself!
So I’m leaving Wolfsburg and seeking a new challenge. I am stopping the Hall of FM-ame challenge as it is now. I am not planning on topping anymore nations Hall of Fames. I am just going to continue playing this same save and have some fun, move about, maybe go back to Sion, who knows! I’d love to manage in England as well.
I hope everyone understand where I’m coming from, all the people I’m close to who I have spoken to have agreed with how I’m feeling, I know there will be some people who don’t agree with me or think I’m giving up or going back to my old ways but this is different. I have a lot going on so I need to take a step back and just make it a little bit more enjoyable for myself.
The season reviews will also continue just maybe a little bit condensed and not as frequent due to the circumstances noted earlier. There also won’t be a goodbye to Wolfsburg the next post you will see will either be at the end of this current season (I’m currently in October).
Thanks for reading
