Thanks to Uncle Ron's fine work, levels 7 & 8 now seem to have (close to) realistic regionalisation regarding the teams, and also promotion of teams up to level 8 (side note, Newcastle Town appeared after just one season. :))

So now, it's time for my FM2010 career, hopefully it will be as epic as my Billericay saves on previous versions and who knows... maybe I'll end up there again..?

Which leads me to the start of my playing. Update to come in due course.

In the close season, Fabio Capello retired and has been replaced by Stuart Pearce.

I've holidayed two seasons and the regional allocation of teams in levels 6 to 8 are much better thanks to Uncle Ron's work, and a spread of teams get promoted to level 8 each season rather than just Northern ones.

I also don't have my **** up of goal difference doesn't count. :D

After two seasons of holidaying, my intention was to take over a team in the lowest level in one of the British leagues, preferably in England. When the season update ran for the third season, it left me a choice of 1 team.

By the way, the regional leagues work fine in 2020 as that is as far as I have tested the file :cool:

That sounds great Aaron. :)

I've had a good long session today, my second at my starting club and I've reached mid January. Should have completed the first season by the end of the week, though a certain PS3 shooting game that is coming out tomorrow might have something to say about that...

In the mean time, here is something for Sam... ;)

Curzon Ashton

Curzon Ashton play at The Tameside Stadium, Ashton-under-Lyne which has a capacity of 4000 with 500 seats. Being a new stadium, built in 2004, it has top corporate facilities with adequate training facilities and basic youth facilities.

The club has kit sponsors on a 4 year deal until 2015 who pay the club £1400 per year.

Their rivals are Ashton United, FC United of Manchester and Mossley.

The club was formed in 1963 but has no history of any real note. Their highest finish in the league came in 1995/6 when they finished 4th in the Northern Premier League First Division, before the restructuring of the non league pyramid and 4th again in the new North Division in 2007/8. The club became more well known in the 2008/9 season where they reached the FA Cup First Round for the first ever time and defeated Exeter City of League Two before being knocked out at Kidderminster Harriers.

The home kit is all blue while the away kit is all red.

The board have given me a 2 year contract on £275 per week.

2011/2 - Curzon Ashton (Northern Premier League First Division North)

Board: Mid table
Media: 14th
Bookies: 14-1
Season tickets: 96 (down 3)

We make a flying start, winning our opening four games before the wheels come off, and once we fix them back on, we've put them on backwards as we are as consistant as gravity on the moon. We settle into mid table mediocrity.

Northern Premier League First Division North: 11th, 56 points

2012/3 - Curzon Ashton (Northern Premier League First Division North)

Board: Safe mid table
Media: 14th

Season tickets: 98 (up 2)

I sign a two year contract extension on the same money.

Again we make a good start, despite in September. Then a long unbeaten run takes us to the top. Things fall apart in Spring where suddenly my players made Castel di Sangro look like they scored a lot of goals during the 'Secondo Miracolo'. We lose out on everything on the final day of the season. A frustrating end to a good season.

2013/4 - Curzon Ashton (Northern Premier League First Division North)

Board: Respectable position
Media: 6th
Bookies: 3-1
Season tickets: 99 (up 1)

A very good start sees us unbeaten in our first 8 games. Our ultra solid defence cements our position at the top end of the table, indeed it's shortly into the second half of the season before our conceded column reaches double figures. Our strong form continues despite only having 16 fit players for a time, and we win the league with one game to spare.

I started two seasons in after holidaying. I didn't sack anybody when I took over. Send me a PM with the original squad (rather than post in this thread) and I'll tell you if any of them are still at the club.

Board: Safe mid table
Media: 11th

Season tickets: 108 (up 9)

A poor start sees us prop up the rest. Lots of cup action sees us then have to play catch up. We do make the First Round of the FA Cup for the second time in the club's history though.
Things don't improve and approaching halfway through the season I am offered a job elsewhere, which given our poor position when better was expected and my contract being up at the end of the season, I accept.

2014/5 - Hednesford Town (Conference North)

Formed in 1880, Hednesford are a team who reached their peak in the 1990s, spending a number of seasons in the Conference (highest finish of 3rd) and famously giving Middlesbrough a mighty scare on the only occasion they have reached the FA Cup Third Round. They were relegated in 2000/1 and have since being trying to regain their previous position in the Conference.
I take over with the team 13th in Conference North after 17 games. I am given a contract lasting 18 months, on £350 per week (up £75).
Keys Park, Hednesford holds 6500 (1025 seats) with fairly basic training, minimal youth and fairly basic corporate facilities. The team is in debt by a considerable amount and a 4 year sponsorship deal worth £7500 per season runs out at the end of the current season. Hednesford have one fierce rival, nearby Stafford Rangers.

Board: The board are not judging me on this season's performance (unless I get them relegated!)
Media: 1st (as at start of season)
Bookies: Unknown
Season tickets: 167

My first win at my new club comes after three games, and it is clear to me by now the current squad is nowhere near good enough. Our home form is good, but our away form is woeful.
Thanks to some loan signings, we pick up and finish strong, hauling ourselves just above where I started out with the club.

http://i887.photobucket.com/albums/ac78/Nobby_McDonald/2014-5-1.jpg

Hednesford were knocked out of all cups before I joined.

Player of the year - Miles Smith
(No picture as out of three I had selected as candidates, he wasn't one of them!)
Average rating - Ryan Wallace 6.88
Top scorer - Anton Bryan 9

A snippet from the new season... into December and Anton Bryan hasn't half found his shooting boots. He scored a hat-trick in consecutive games at Altrincham and Alfreton in the league, but sadly didn't become (possibly) the first player to score a hat-trick in three successive games all away from home when he 'only' scored once in a defeat at AFC Wimbledon in the FA Trophy.

A superb start sees us beat Nantwich 5-1 on opening day and the team is more consistant and stronger than last season.
An embarrassing 2-1 home defeat to 21st placed Corby sparked a brief downturn.
We bounce back well but then hit another poor patch. So much for our consistancy.
A win at then runaway league leaders Fleetwood kicks off another strong run that continues to the end of the season.
We suffer playoff heartbreak when Northwich score a 90th minute winner in the final.

Ukraine world champions. The world has lost the plot.

By any chance did Ireland get out of their group stage on penalties as well?

Nobby_McDonald
04-01-2010, 00:07
Ukraine must have done well if they won the World Cup as well as the European Championship in the same year. :D

And that would be funny if Ireland had done so.


On a more serious note, the Hednesford chairman has offered me a two year contract extension to 2019 and a pay rise (of £50) to £400 per week. It took me about a nanosecond to decide yes.

2016/7 - Hednesford Town (Conference North)

Board: Promotion
Media: 2nd
Bookies: 12-1
Season tickets: 170 (up 7)

The board offer me a 2 year contract extension to 2019 on £400 per week (up £50). I accept.

A bumper opening day crowd of 1005 see us beat Stalybridge 1-0. Goals prove to be harder to come by in the early season but despite this, we lie top after 9 games.
A good run in the FA Cup comes to a halt at home to the League One leaders Blackpool, who are managed by Ryan Giggs. The scoreline did flatter the visitors.
At halfway we are still top, but it's close. We are scoring more goals now and look a threat to every team we play.
As the season enters the final quarter, nine teams are within nine points of each other at the top of the table. This looks like going all the way...
A very wet Spring sees postponements and a fixture backlog in April - we only play one league game in the whole of March.
A strong finish sees us two points clear heading into the final game at home to relegated Solihull.

We win 2-0 thanks to two goals from Ryan Wallace.

2017/8 - Hednesford Town (Conference Premier)

Board: Fight bravely
Media: 21st
Bookies: 14-1
Season tickets: 281 (up 111)

The bookies odds surprise as with no increase in the wage budget and the board blocking any new signings due to being considerably over it anyway, the season ahead is going to be difficult.
Or is it? A 0-0 draw at Northwich to kick off the season is followed by beating AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in our first home game (watched by 1061) suggests the gap between leagues might not be as big as I first feared.
Indeed, we are unbeaten in our first six games, the first defeat being a 3-1 defeat at home to fierce rivals Stafford.

After twelve games we are mid table, which I am satisfied. However, we have only lost once but drawn eight games, which is a little concern.
At the halfway stage we have drawn 16 out of the 23 games and our goals record reads 23:21. That sums the first half of the season to a tee.

The draws slip away during the third quarter of the campaign as wins feature as often as losses.

As the season draws to a clear, we are safely clear of relegation with four games to play. The squad doesn't have strength in depth though, and goals have been much harder to come by. We need either a wage budget increase or turn professional next season or things won't get any better.

Solid season and survival :thup: Good luck for next one. Here's hoping you turn pro or get a better wage budget.

Nobby_McDonald
01-02-2010, 19:53
Thanks, though solid and a little boring was more like it, certainly the first half of the season!

Neither turning pro nor an increase in wage budget has happened (though to be fair, the club has been in debt ever since I joined). I've turned down a one year contract extension (with a £50 per week pay rise) because of it. I'll do this season and evaluate my options after it.

01-02-2010, 20:10
Excellent consolidation in Conference Premier. Not sure you will turn pro until you hit the league unless they change it for this FM.

Sad to see Supermarine slip out of the playable divisions. Out of interest which division have they been sorted to in Level 9?

Leonardo de Araújo was sacked as Brazil coach following the World Cup defeat and was replaced by Lúcio.

Pangaea
03-02-2010, 14:36
At least somebody with some experience. In my game they hire a new face at least once a year, and almost without exception some regen with zero playing or management experience. It's not limited to Brazil though :(

UELLfan
03-02-2010, 15:54
To be fair on the Brazil FA, semifinal or not if I were to lose to Japan in a WC as Brazil manager I'd expect to be sacked.

Happy 40th birthday, Simon.

Pangaea
03-02-2010, 16:24
Aye, the sackings isn't the most annoying thing. A fair few of them are realistic (though I think one was sacked after a friendly loss). What isn't ideal is that some uknown head with no experience takes over many of the national teams. If it was a former player, like Lucio, I'd be fine with it. But it doesn't feel right when some unkown takes over. What about starting at the bottom, pal? :D

4 players subbed on. How did that go about?

Nobby_McDonald
08-02-2010, 23:36
The third change I made, but then before the substitution actually happened, Smith got injured. When it took me to the tactics screen, I cancelled the subbing Bryan for Wallace and put Nixon on to replace Smith instead, which happened. A minute later when the ball went out of play again, the cancelled Bryan/Wallace sub also happened.

I didn't do it intentionally, I had the intention only to make the third sub.

Pangaea
08-02-2010, 23:49
That is a strange one, yeah. Very rare case, but must be a hole in the code somewhere. Have you posted it in the Bugs forum and uploaded the pkm? Maybe too late to get in for 10.3, but nice to let the SI-blokes know about it anyway.

2018/9 - Hednesford Town (Conference Premier)

Board: Avoid relegation
Media: 19th
Bookies: 50-1
Season tickets: 286 (up 5)

There is no money in the transfer nor wage budget to sign any players. My hands are well and truly tied together and I'm left with a smaller squad than last season after releasing a couple of players. Because the board seem to be showing no ambition, I refuse to sign a contract extension which would have given me a £50 per week pay rise.

A great start on the pitch sees a 4-0 win at Kidderminster and then also scoring 4 at Droylsden and Morecambe. I pick an unchanged team for the opening eight games and after twelve we're in a very good 9th position. Wallace has his shooting boots again this season. Pleasing.

Game 16 sees us two down at home to leaders MK Dons who have won their last six games. A storming comeback to win 3-2 sparks a long unbeaten run and as Christmas arrives, we're surprising everybody and sit in 6th position.

The transfer window closes and still with no money available, we make no signings. Our form dips and we start to slide, but when the end of the season comes, it's been a good one and the final position was much better than I was expecting.

I apply for a number of clubs, and my options become two. I turn down East Fife in the Scottish Second Division and move to...

2019/20 - Northampton Town (League One)

Board: Fight bravely
Media: 21st
Bookies: Unknown
Season tickets: 2671 (up 41)

I am offered a 3 year contract on £575 per week, and increase of £175 on my wage at Hednesford.
Sixfields Stadium, Northampton holds 7653 (all seated) with adequate training, youth and corporate facilities. The club pay a nominal £1 per year in rent.
The club has two sponsors - a 5 year stadium deal worth £115,000 per year to 2020 and a 4 year main kit deal worth £63,500 per year to 2021.

We struggle to start with despite a couple of good opening games. Things don't improve, confidence is rock bottom and it becomes clear we are in the proverbial dogfight.

Then we beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 at Sixfields to spark a good run, albeit a short one.

In January, the loan signing of Neil Walters from Arsenal's reserve team sparks the team in to some life. His goals sees the team show some improvement.

With two games to play we are three points above the drop zone. A draw at Walsall and Coventry losing prevents squeaky bum time. Walters' 12 goals in 15 games underlines his great contribution to our survival. Would we have gone down without him? Probably. A mention also to rookie Lloyd Wordsworth, who showed bags of potential in his first year in football and was rewarded with two caps for the England under 19 side in the Summer.

Signing Walters would be great for the club, but he still has two years left on his Arsenal contract and is worth millions. Hopefully I can get him on a season long loan. Watching Wordsworth develop will be exciting, like poetry if you will...

Remco Hendrix!? Scottish?

Is he of Dutch ascendacy perchance? :D

Good first season, Simon.

Nobby_McDonald
22-02-2010, 16:16
Thanks both.

Close Jordi, Remco was born in Spermalie, Belgium. He was then signed by Celtic from Club Brugge in his first season and went on to be capped for Scotland against Ecuador. So much for the "Gentleman's agreement".

He's back in Scotland now as well. The chairman sold him to Aberdeen for £650,000 in pre season.

Walters is refusing to rejoin on loan. Looks like this season will be even tougher than the first one at Sixfields. If Wordsworth goes we've had it.

Best of luck with the Cobblers, Nobby - so how many times have you played against Southampton in the cups with them so far? Saints v Northampton seems to be a regular cup fixture in real life these days!

By the way, which competition is the Eidos Suck Arse trophy? Is that what you call the JPT?

Nobby_McDonald
25-02-2010, 00:23
I've only played Southampton once, but I'm only in my second season with Northampton.

The Johnstones Paint Trophy is indeed what I have called Eidos Suck Arse Trophy. It's because the Johnstones Paint Trophy is a waste of time, just like Eidos. Hence, they both suck arse.

kevhamster
25-02-2010, 08:13
LOL! Well, I won't share that view about the JPT when I'm at Wembley next month, especially is Saints win!

Good, solid progress so far. You've got to keep Wordsworth though.

Nobby_McDonald
25-02-2010, 14:20
It wasn't the Eidos Suck Arse Trophy when Stoke played in the final a couple of times some years ago.

Eidos were still making the Sports Interactive version of Championship Manager back then.


Thanks Midlothian... yes keeping Wordsworth is going to be key, or at least long enough for me to be able to build a solid squad around him. Hopefully the chairman won't sell him like he did with Jimi Hendrix... er, I mean Remco Hendrickx.

Wordsworth has just scored from the halfway line. This boy is going places. Hopefully with me as his manager.

Wordsworth is still three months off his 18th birthday and he has already played 62 league games, scored 10 goals and average a shade under 7.

He is worth £425,000 and has interest from Castilla and Valladolid, but no English clubs.

Hey mate,

just read through all your progress and you hae done well going from a teamin the northen league division one south to a team in leagu 1. I was over the moon when I saw Brighton get promoted to the championship and then they went down to league two. How are they doing as a whole? I am also surprised at how well the Ukranians are doing havng won 1 world cup and 1 euro championship so far in your game. Anyway, goodluck for the future,

Best Wishes,
Pete

Ukranian players are also awesome in my save. They're well scattered amongst the best European clubs.

GL on keeping Wordsworth under your iron fist, Simon. Or was it rather velvet glove?

pretty decent records there Nobby that boy Wordsworth looks a gem, id kill for him in my Crook team.

Nobby_McDonald
02-03-2010, 01:12
Wordsworth - he's staying as long as I'm able to keep him. Iron fist indeed!

Pete - Thanks. Ukraine have been strong which I've not noticed in other people's careers. Shows how one game world is different from another. I'll update you on Brighton when I next play.
