Welcome to LowerLeagueManager.com, the Gateway to the Wonderful World of LLM

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a real manager, taking charge of a tiny club, with no transfer funds and players that barely know which goal they should be running towards?

Have you ever dreamed of taking your local club, with a support base barely in triple figures (if you're lucky) to the heights of European glory?

Have you ever wondered why that bald shouty bloke would coach the same team of no-hopers for 20 years with no financial reward or personal glory to show for it?

Welcome to the wonderful world of LLM, where dreams of all of the above drive its players to start at the bottom and work their way to the very top (or not), with nothing but their own mettle to aid them.

Lowerleaguemanager.com is a site aimed at introducing new players to the way of the LLaMa. This is not some watered-down, poor-man's cheap imitation, kiddy version, however. We want to introduce new players to the real thing, so the rules and guidelines are the same as those developed by the established LLM community - formulated and refined over many years, evolving as each iteration of the Football Manager franchise has grown.

Many people are put off by the complex and demanding nature of LLM and, while it is true that to play LLM takes a certain kind of player - disciplined, patient, possibly slightly obsessive - once the ethos is understood, many find it is the most satisfying way to play the game and never play any other way. That this style of play has lasted so long and the community remained so strong is a tribute to the fact that once you play this way, you probably always will.

Lowerleaguemanager.com will be a friendly place to learn about LLM, amongst forum members and moderators willing to explain things and guide new players along the path of the LLaMa. But never tipping, of course. To this end, we request that established LLaMas be patient with the newbies and help them adjust to this style of playing.

However, this does not mean that the guidelines or rules will be watered down in any way. This is still LLM. The only way to truly discover the way of the LLaMa is to play like a LLaMa.
