The summer of 2042 began with two long-time Trotter Talents departing as Luke Johnson and Luca Godden both left when their contracts expired.
Russian manager Vladimir Latunov had worked wonders to steer Torpedo Zhodinov clear of relegation, only for them to promptly sack him when he began looking elsewhere! However, he soon gained an upgrade when he took the reigns at divisional rivals Dinamo Minsk.
My number one rule on FM21 is to never trust my scouts (unless they tell me a player is really, really bad). For that reason, I use a wide range of tactics for finding the best new players from all around the world on FM21.
Bolton Wanderers started the 2041/42 campaign in sensational form, only dropping four points after 20 matches. And they were led by 21-year-old Turkish striker Onur Kocaaslan, who bagged 35 goals by the mid-way point of the season and was eyeing up the club's all-time league goals in a season record!
Fresh from wrapping up a 10th top tier title in Eastern Europe with Slovenian side NK Celje, Russian manager was back on the move in his Soviet Surge. His 12th club in 11 countries took him to Belarus with Torpedo Zhodino.
The big focus of this Bolton Wanderers save has been producing our own talents through the youth academy. The summer of 2041 saw the very first product of the academy hang up his boots as former captain Nigel Turner, who came through our 2021 intake, retired after 653 appearances, including 444 league games for Bolton.
Russian manager Vladimir Latunov had overseen an impressive turn in fortunes for his new club NK Celje. The Slovenian side finished just outside the relegation zone in the 2035/36 campaign, but sat top of the league unbeaten mid-way through the current season.
This Bolton Wanderers side has become absolutely exceptional, which was highlighted by them remaining unbeaten and dominating the Premier League with a 19-point lead at the midway point of the 2040/41 campaign.
The summer of 2036 took nomadic manager Vladimir Latunov on to his 10th club in an 11th Eastern European country on his Soviet Surge adventure.
n ridiculous fantasies that we could feasibly take over our favourite club and work wonders. For example, even if Bolton Wanderers appointed Pep Guardiola tomorrow morning it's unrealistic to think that in 20 years time he would have not only won the club's first league title but also the Champions League.
