If you want to do this in earlier versions you can but only for last 3 before this as they went bankrupt and started again in Serie D as PARMA CALCIO 1913.

Depending which version you do it on will see you start in Serie D, C or B.

Tempted to try this, my pc won't run those three leagues without killing itself, so can I just load Italy if I try it? 

Not a problem the other leagues just give bigger range for transfers/scouting but that said you wont have the budget of a Juve or Milan etc. Using just Italy is fine and good luck.

How has everyone done or not done.

I was full of the best intentions but haven't really got started as have been busy.

I have kicked it off and won first couple of friendlies but not had chance to progress further.

Ok we can extend over December.

I have got two goodies lined up for new year then

1 for @willz121 and rest of us is can you restore a fallen giant and take Coventry City back to the Championship and maybe beyond. I am right in thinking you support the Sky Blues Will?

Second is, Can you do better than Sol Cambell? The ex-England defender has moaned about not getting managers jobs and has just landed his first at Macclesfield who are in real life currently bottom of League Two. How can you do in one season as them, can you save them or get them up even?  Will your position be higher than Campbell's in real life? 

Those are the two I'm toying with at mo anyway.

@David - I am indeed a long suffering Coventry City fan! Be interested in both of those challenges as Macclesfield also have a couple of our youngsters on loan.

I've not actually managed to play FM19 yet so be good to try and get into it over the Christmas break!
