Elinia - Replan season 1
submitted by LW78 10 days 19 hrs 4 mins ago
Season 35 was a success. In as much as we were relegated.

Finishing19th was lower than planned, perhaps getting a little carried away with losing.

We also managed to halve the wage bill through selling most of the high value members of the squad and releasing another who was due to retire this season. Paying his wages early to lessen the hefty tax bill.

Financially, the plan remains on track, and tier two of the stadium will complete this season. I know I've gone against convention here. Certainly I am incurring higher maintenance costs, but it does allow more flexibility to reduce ticket prices and keep a reasonable gate income.

I was surprised however at how quickly the attendances dropped though, and I am now considering if going all the way down makes much difference to staying in division 2 or 3 and going out there.

Great update. Looks like things are getting very well-sorted on the financial front with the super low wages. That wage bill is insanely low! I think the benefits of dropping all the way down likely outweigh the benefits of an aborted plan as you get to build up so much positive momentum with your club rating from winning back up to the top. If you do that from just one or two leagues down, you probably won't get quite the recovery boost you are looking for. Still, there are a billion ways to skin the IAG cat, so whatever works for you is what you should do :) Thanks for the update, watching your progress is really intersting.

Wise words Piper. And the momentum was key to my original plan, I'm still in favour of that. In terms of wages, they are right for this squad!! After the next sale and the contract ending mid season, I will have no players rated over 40. And only a handful capable of it. This is a squad built for the drop. I lost a 48 rated youth yesterday which was a bit gutting, but youth promotions are also key to rebuilding. They dont have to be great, just good enough to get up back to the second tier.
