First dafuge challenge - so I took a club with over 1000 rep. - King's Lynn. To be frank it was the only club that I felt comfortable with at once because of the name and colours. Just felt right http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Transfers of summer 1 (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x103/jvovk22/Tranferssummerofseason1.jpg)

Some may notice I signed Hadji. Really apologize for this minor blip - it won't repeat again. I guess I couldn't scout him, as he played in Luxembourg - but hope it will be forgiven. Noticed it after I signed him already and as it's my first time here - be kind http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Managed to sign all but 2 of the players on full-time contracts. Got 2 scouts, a coach, assistant and a player/coach http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif Wage budget under control - still have 25pounds p/w left to spend http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Chose avoid relegation as the season ambition, as I had no clue how my team of free transfers would perform. Well - they turned out to be decent lads after all http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nice one, kept that one quiet didn't you? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I think i mentioned it briefly in last seasons challenge thread. I been doing it since FM05 and still going. They became my favorite non-league side when they took Fulham to a replay in the FA Cup 1n 1999 i think it was.
I started going to most of their home games and thought i'd apply for their club researcher vacancy, the rest is history as they say. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Guess what?

I went to almost every home game of theirs between '97 and '01 including the Fulham game you speak of, both the replay at home and the original tie at Craven Cottage. Went to a few away games too, including one up in Wales. Was much more fun than supporting a big team imo.

I lived about 10 minutes from their ground too. I remember the season they won the Unibond First Division, Steve Jones now of Burnley banging them in. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Quality aaberdeenn, small world heh. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Steve Jones was a super player for us, i was gutted to see him leave (although RMI benefited hugely from the £75,000 transfer fee they received). I've currently got a little RMI save on the go at present. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

A manager is born

After reloading the game on the 18th June approximately 30 times, a club with a reputation under 1000 finally showed up.

Halesowen Town was the club who appointed the young and hopeful danish manager talent Frederik Thorøe (http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/5780/profileau4.jpg)

At least you guys have some sort of parent club. My board after a season and a half still cant see the point in forming links with other clubs. Wish they would offer me one just so we could get a bit of money from the yearly fee if nothing else.

King's Lynn - September 2008

The month of August ended with an awful 6-1 loss to Leigh as said before, and the Manager of the Month award for the unproven Ukrainian specialist.

However that's when the problems started. The enthusiasm of the players who got full-time contracts faded somewhat, as they understood they will be getting their salaries no matter what. And the hype in the King's Lynn local paper about the brilliant squad and talent of the Rookie manager didn't help either.

The first half of the month didn't give any clues about the upcoming storm. A comfortable home victory 3-1 over Solihull Moors and a fitness coach and physio added to the clubs staff.

The main summer problem that was the lack of defensive additions to the club became glaringly obvious. After 2 of the 5 defenders became unavailible (one through injury, and the other one through suspension), and of the remaigning 3 defenders 2 were LB's - the defence crumbled.

3 losses in a row with 10 goals conceeded in those games. And a home draw with non-league Harlow in the FA Cup 2nd Qual. Rnd added to the shame.

Harlow was defeated 4-2 in the replay game, and no-one had any doubts about the result as it was the 1st of October on the Calendar. The quest continues

Fixtures (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x103/jvovk22/Fixtures1stOctober.jpg)

The main forwards are Chris Martin (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x103/jvovk22/ChrisMartin.jpg) from Norwich and Jonathan Pringle (http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x103/jvovk22/JonathanPringle.jpg) who was previously without a club

Chippenham Town - End of Season Update - 2008/2009

Promoted! (http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/4922/fm08defbsspromotionuv3.jpg)

League
The season started well enough. A couple of loans from big brother Bristol City certainly helped us gain an unfair advantage over the other teams and we accelerated up the league notching victories here and there. By mid season we were cruising. Top of the league with 40+ points. Judging from last season, I figured 80 points would be enough to secure me the title. Not so unfortunately. Crawley went on a 17 match unbeaten run, Chippenham among their victims, to finish top with 93 points. How could I beat that? http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif The battle lost but the war still to be fought, I was pretty psyched up for the play-offs.

Play-Offs
A 3-1 home win negated a 1-0 away loss and promotion was within sight. Ebbsfleet, whom we had never lost to in the league stood in the way. We dominated possession and territory but failed to score when it mattered. Twice we took the lead and twice they came back. Plummer who had been outstanding all season broke the deadlock with 15 minutes to go and as Ebbsleet surged forward for another equaliser, we pounced on the counter to put the game beyond doubt. 4-2 (http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/4807/fm08defbssfinalul5.jpg) the final score. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Squad
About 25 in total were signed to add to the 4 on loan from Bristol City. 5 would eventually be sold off and another 2 rotted away in the reserves. Of note were:

Tristan Plummer (http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/9132/fm08defplummerpr4.jpg) - candidate for player of the season with 47 goals to his name. 10 assist showed he wasn't just about scoring.

Leighton McGivern (http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/420/fm08defmcgivernbn3.jpg) - formed a great partnership with Plummer with 21 goals and 16 assists.

Junior Brown (http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/6596/fm08defbrownyu4.jpg) - Held his own on the wings. 9 goals and 11 assists to show. Certainly one for the future.

Alan Moogan (http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/1073/fm08defmoogancm3.jpg) - established himself as first choice DM with consistent performances all season.

Martin Slocombe (http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/5616/fm08defsclocomberx2.jpg) - another on loan. Invaluable with his ability to play full back or winger.

John Johnson - A solid center back but 20K was too good to turn down. Sold to Bromley who I later found out had been relegated. Pity.

Team Stats (http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/8205/fm08defteamstatsrs3.jpg)

Player Stats (http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/1379/fm08defplayerstatsxd1.jpg)

Plummer should win player of the season. Crossing my fingers that I can steal manager of the season from the Crawley boss.

Pre-Season Review

Transfers

In traditional fashion I scoured my transfer list for players from far and wide. You don't get much further and wider than some of my signings either. Firstly to deal with the departures though.

Andrew Gurney's contract ran out, and he sadly left the club. I thought he was retiring but he postponed that for a year and now sits on the free-transfer list. Jamie Lawrence's contract also expired, he still has no plans for retirement though at the young age of 39 and also sits on the free-transfer list. Paul Cochlin was released from his contract for simply not being good enough, and Carl Rodgers was offloaded on a free to Billericay Town.

Due to my bank balance, and a multitude of offers in the off-season I also had to sell the super striker Ben Hutchinson. He left to Tottenham Hotspurs for $300k and 25% of his next sale. Here's hoping they offload him for several million some time soon.

Ben Hutchinson Statistics
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
App Goa Ass MoM Yel Red AvR
League 37 24 13 6 2 0 7.16
Cup 7 1 2 0 0 0 7.29
Overall 44 25 15 6 2 0 7.18</pre>

That was the last of the sales, although I had several offers for Jamie Barron, I considered none of them high enough, particularly after the Hutchinson sale and he has been retained for the new season. Now, onto the purchases.

I signed a Danish attacking midfielder from Hinckley for £14k. My assistant manager says he will be a leading League 1 midfielder in future. Still not my record transfer, that belongs to a member of my coaching staff strangely enough.

I also signed an Irish striker,James McGarry, for £8k from Hayes and Yeading, although I like to call him Imhotep (http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d54/purpinklemonkeys/Dafuges%20Challenge/10-27-2007_00-50-16.jpg) http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif He is supposedly going to be a decent Championship striker.

Kasper Jensen, another Danish player, from Havant & Waterlooville. This time a central defender who can become a decent League 1 central defender. Stephane Le Mentec appeared thanks to my limited French knowledge. He's only 15 so will take a lot of work, but is touted to be a leading Championship central defender in future, and he was really hard to sign.

Let's go further, and wider, New Caledonia to be precise, where a few people turned up with French as a 2nd nationality. Gregory Paoli is the goalkeeper I mentioned earlier, apparently twice the player of my current goalkeeper, but has shown no evidence of this as of yet. Coach loved his potential though. Eddie Pilorget and Alain Gimenez both joined him from New Caledonia, for my central defence. Both of them have the potential to be decent league 1 central defenders in the future.

Now we get to the influence of Bontcho. The Bulgarians, four to be precise. Georgi Pavlov, a mean central defender, huge aggression, determination and bravery, although his technical attributes leave a lot to be desired. He will apparently become a good Championship central defender. Stanislav Delev, another player in Georgi's mould, in that he's a mean ******* with little or no technical ability. Aside from tackling, he's a great tackler and is being retrained from central midfield to a deeper lying defensive midfield role. After him we have Pavel Dimov. He has awful attributes in almost everything. However he has 19 for pace and acceleration and 16 for finishing and further double figures in off the ball and stamina, so I gave him a chance on my assistant manager's recommendation that he will become a leading Championship striker in the future.

Now, that's only three Bulgarians? Well I have saved the best until last. Not just the best Bulgarian, not just the best signing this pre-season, but Harrow Borough's best signing in the 76 year history of the club. Bontcho really came up with the goods with this central midfielder. He's currently being retrained into the attacking midfielder position, with his tendency to try killer balls often I have no doubt he will make a great playmaker for my side. My assistant manager claims he will be a good Premier Division midfielder in the future, and with that he was signed up until the year 2012. I give you, Dimitar Todorov! (http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d54/purpinklemonkeys/Dafuges%20Challenge/10-27-2007_13-59-05.jpg) I signed him on trial, and broke my wage budget and my transfer budget getting him to sign such a lengthy deal with the club, but this guy is something special. It's going to be interesting to see how he performs at such a young age, and if he plays well, can I hold on to him? Unfortunately I doubt it, so I may have to limit his first team appearances.

All those players were signed on trial first, apart from the ones from clubs obviously, and I can provide proof of such if anyone wants it. I actually signed upwards of 30-40 players on trial but only kept the ones my assistant manager really liked. However I'm playing pre-patch so it could be he's just wildly over rating all of them http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Friendlies

So, it seems like you only need a few decent attributes to score at this level if you ask Dimov, although I'm not too impressed. Only manageable team I played was West Ham's Reserves and he completely disappeared out of that game. Imhotep has scored a couple of long rangers, but my new "twice as good" goalkeeper isn't fairing well at all. Probably made a total of 5 saves in pre-season. It's going to be a tough decision about whether to go for him, or with the tried and tested, but average Hussein.

I've given him number 25. There is no way he can fail to be a total legend with the number 25 on his back.

Updated Table (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/table2.jpg)

With 9 games I've managed to keep my form going but for a 5 game period where I lost 3 games. Sitting in 3rd place & 7 points behind the leaders Salisbury I don't think I'll be able to win the league but a play off place is pretty much guaranteed so overall I'm very pleased with the first season.

Know my weak areas in the side & can work on that during the summer depending on what league I play in but I have 6 of my first XI I believe are good enough for League 2 or below standard so can build around them.

I've just noticed that one of my reserves' value has crept up to £350k, three time more than any of my first team. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I'm giving him a few games just in case I've had a legend rotting in the reserves for the last three seasons.

I had some loans this season who were way better than the average BS side, i think i will not loan any player from now on that are way to good.

I had third most attendence at 1034 average, which is really nice actually and gave me a good income!

Loading up for the new season, ill be looking to strengthen my squad heavely

Canvey Island 1 - 3 Chippenham

The first have finished in no time there was nothing the action started in the mid of the second half after my 11 got going a scored for me the first goal in 68 min and another after 2 min, and before 5 min from the finish they scored a goal so they attacked a lot in the last 5 min but with a counter attack in the last min I got a goal. The team played well espiclly because it their first time together.

Chippenham 2 - 3 Chesham

Like always I don't do anything in the first half but they did and go two goals and with some changes in half time I got a goal in the 51 and bulid up pressuer on the them the resulted in a second goal in the 71th min but in the 78th min they got a goal http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif and I lost my first game at home

Cirencester 0 - 2 Chippenham

They played better in the match but because an early goal in the 6th min and another before the end of the first half I got the win. those2 shot were the only ones on target in the whole match http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Chippenham 4 - 5 Man Utd Reserves

What a game! I got 2 goals in the first 25 min but the first half ended in a draw http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif and from the 60th min to the 70th they scored 3 goals http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif and then I got a goal in the 82th min and another in the last min too bad it was too late to get a draw. scholes and gigges played in the match http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

That was the first game of the season :/

they've only scored 2 goals since. However, Nuneaton, who were on the wrong end of the 17-0, have since lost 6-0 and 5-1 .... could be a long season for them.!

The Losing Team (17-0) (http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a385/NepentheZ/AwayStats.jpg)

(((((~NEWBROOK~)))))
27-10-2007, 07:05
Tiverton Town 2008/2009

Blue Square South
Well after starting the game by telling the board that i would battle bravely against relegation (and feeling my self that i could have a long hard season on my hands)
I ended up finishing a respectable 5th (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonFinalLeagueTable.jpg) place in the Blue Square South
It was an inconsistent season for Tivvy, starting off well then hitting a mixed patch of results over the festive period, only to then see a eleven match unbeaten run come to an end in the Playoff Semi Final Second Leg (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonPlayoffSemiLeg2.jpg)
After a long hard season it came down to a penalty shoot out, not the way i had planned it http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
After keeping myself in contention with the playoffs all season my unbeaten run is what captured the final playoff place.
Us and Newport were fighting over 5th place for the last 10 games and i managed to secure it in the penutimate game of the season
Both of us had the same kind of teams to play including Forest Green and Billericay
As i managed a draw against Billercay and a win against Forest Green by the time the referee had blown the whistle on the Newport County - Forest Green game (which ended 1-1) meant i had gained the last playoff spot.

Sentanta Sheild
Nothing major to talk about in here other than a rather comfortable 1st round win
First Round - St Albns 4-1 Won
Second Round - Bromley 2-1 Lost
The board wanted me to get at least to the second round, which i did and in return they were happy with progress in the competiton

FA Trophy
A long run in this cup kept my hopes alive towards the end of the season of maybe snatching a trophy, that was ended in the fourth round though
Third Round Qualify - Bath 2-1 Won
First Round - Chelmsford 2-0 Won
Second Round - Bognor Reiges 3-0 Won
Third Round - Altrincham 3-1 Won
Fourth Round - York 2-1 Lost
The Board wanted my to get to the first round of the FA Trophy, with me reaching the fourth round the board were delighted

FA Cup
Another long cup run saw me hoping and dreaming of a fairytale third round draw against a big team, but unfortunatley i didnt make it to the thrid round.
The dream came back to earth with rather massive bump.
After starting with two good games my scoring levelled its self out, then my defence took a fair beating porberly my worst performance of the season
Second Qual Round - Nuneaton - 5-0 Won
Third Qual Round - Chasetown - 4-1 Won
Fourth Qual Round - Tilbury - 3-2 Won
First Round - Heybridge - 1-0 Won
Second Round - Carlisle - 6-1 Lost

Team
There was only youth players at the team when i took over so my first port of call was to get a team together.
Luckily i had a brilliant parent club in Plymouth
I loaned no less than seven players from them and thats what brought me my almost sucsess.
Team (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonTownFinalTeam.jpg)
My best players were undoubtedley my loan players

Goalkeeper
Michal Misiwicz (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonGoalkeeperMichalMisiwicz.jpg) the young Polish keeper came on loan to me at the start of the season and i had big hopes for him, those hope were put into practice.
Playing exceptionaly well all season playing all games except the final two (playoff semi)
Although he may have conceded a fair few his excellence in some games gave us 3 points instead of none
Rating 7/10

Defender
Paul Kendall (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonDefenderPaulKendall.jpg) the young English Defender had attributes that were easyable good enough for a lower league two team let alone Tivyy.
He came in and played at centre back most of the season and was comanding and trustworthy, along with his defensive duties he was a good corner kick taker.
7/10

Midfeilder
Brian McCaul (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonMidfeilderBrianMcGaul.jpg) young Northen Irish centre mid was always hard working, a superb free kick taker and always looking to get into attacking posistions this was shown in the amount of goals that he scored in the season.
Most of the goals he scored were from freekicks but there were some beautys from open play
Rating 8/10

Striker
Reis Ashraf (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd46/samnewbrook/TivertonStrikerReisAshraf.jpg) young English striker who came on loan from Plymouth proved an absolute sensation here at the Leadysmead.
Playing 52 games and scoring 46 goals he really helped Tiverton single handedly rise up the table.
His lack of goals in big occasions is worrying, but other than that i can see him becoming a good stable championship striker.
Rating 9/10

Sumary
All in all in broke all expectations and finshed 5h in the league
But....
I had proberly got the best team in he league, so i cant help but feel dissapointed that i didnt manage to clinch promotion as i dont think i will get a better chance to go up.
Good cup runs were a pleasent distraction and the hope of getting a big team in the third round of the FA Cup was pleasing in its self even though it didnt happen.

Next Season
I dont think that many of the players that came on loan this season will want to come back next season, but this is something i will certainly be trying though.
As far as expectations in the league go for next season i want to try and strive forward and clinch a top four finish.

Been sitting re-loading for quite some time now waiting to get Chippenham however i am now thinking i will just go with a random team that is eligible and join Jimbo and the many others to restart when the patch is released.

I will simply use the next couple of weeks to get an idea for the tactics and the like on the new version and start afresh with Chippenham later on.

I think it's too esay with Chippenham.

When i started with them I got Cole Skuse and Frankie Artus in on loan and well as about 6 other loaness and I would have romped the league.

It was boring http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon13.gif. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Ok, this is something I've always been wondering. In my game, Frankie and many other players have their contract do to expire very soon (typically june 30). I don't seem to be able to offer these guys loan contracts as they would go beyond the players current contract. They loan option is even greyed out and not selectable. However, the CPU always manages to loan these same players on year long loans which automattically extends the contract. This has always driven me insane as I'm usually praying these players will get released on the first of july so I can at least take a shot at them. Is there some secret to being able to make the loan offer?


On the topic of Chippenham and frankie.. I finally got a post beta patch game started with chippenham (I really got tired of reloading and nothing but chippenham and halesowen came up tis time). Frankie got released, but dispite my best efforts and trying to use a very large chunk of my wage budget, he wasn't willing to come.

Spurs1979 - Hendon - 2008/2009 Season
Final League Table (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/table3.jpg)

Well I finally finished 2nd in the league on 94 points behind Salisbury who ended on 103 points so feel I did pretty good dispite not winning the league. Played very consistant but for a bad patch of 5 games mid season that cost me in the long run but can't fault my players efforts at all, they all did there bit to help us achieve a play off place.

We were drawn against Sutton Utd who I lost 3-2 at there place but won 2-0 at home which was the 2nd to last game of the season. I am currently in a strong vein of form & top both the home & away form tables for the last 6 games so go in full of confidence I can achieve promotion.

Report will follow with play off results & a brief report about my squad & how they each did.

Halesowen Town 2010/2011

League One - Media prediction 24th

The players of Halesowen Town never cease to amaze anybody. After struggling early in the season, languishing around lower mid table thorough september and october, two young starlets from parent club West Brom turned up to save the day for the second consecutive season. Despite struggling in the cup competitions, the yeltz consistently strung together results through the winter months and come february, were in a position to have a run at the playoff places. Notable results including a 5-0 win over former parent club Walsall (Warsaw) and 6-0 over last years conference winners Aldershot. A reduction in training intensity allowed my small squad (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee192/hee163/Dafuge1011/1011_squad.jpg) to stay largely healthy towards the end of season, The result was a final position of 5th, and a place in the playoffs, where Shrewsbury were dispatched largely thanks to a 3-1 away win in the 1st leg, followed by a 2-1 extra time win over hapless Darlington in the playoff final (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee192/hee163/Dafuge1011/1011_L2playofffinal.jpg).

The major offseason goals will be to add depth in all departments so I don't have to rely on loan singnings, and strengthen my defence: Whilst banging in a league leading 96 goals, I allowed 68 goals in the league, the same number as 23rd placed Hereford, and 19 more than any other club in the playoffs.... At least the fans got value for money. My average attendance was 4236.... 2000 up on a year before, and not too shabby for a 5000 capacity stadium.

One of my WBA loanees was the division'stop scorer (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee192/hee163/Dafuge1011/1011_topscorer.jpg), Again.

Graph (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee192/hee163/Dafuge1011/1011_graph.jpg)

So, league one next time round, after three successive playoff promotions. I'm really not full of confidence, as I'm struggling to attract quality players, and although my coaches reckon quite a few of my players are up to L1 standard, they really don't look it. Survival is my 1 and only goal for next year.

Wishing everyone else the luck of the Yeltz...

Mipi - Chippenham Town - 2008/2009 Pre Season update

It was an eery welcome for me. No staff, no fans just a shady looking charachter professing to be the chairman and some young talentless children pretending to be players. My first action was to spam the unattached players with trial offers to see if anyone was desprate enough to come. To try to improve manager-board relationships I promised that I would be able to easily avoid relegation (lol).

Signings
Simon Silk (http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/678/simonsilklq7.jpg), 16yo keeper
My first signing and he actually isn't terrible. Apparantly has the potential to become a good League 2 keeper.

Tommy Jaszczun (http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/5687/tommysomethinguj3.jpg), 30yo left back
You know you have reached the big time when you have signed a player whose name you aren't quite sure of how to pronounce. I signed him as an AssMan even though he is a pretty terrible AssMan because he is an OK left back.

Jon Bass (http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff73/Mipipics/jonbass.jpg), 32 yo right back
Old and not that good but I needed someone to take that position

Neil Kennedy (http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff73/Mipipics/neilkennedy.jpg), 30 yo striker
Signed in deperation. He isn't that good but is better than the greys

Nathan Smith (http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff73/Mipipics/nathansmith.jpg), 23 yo striker
A much better striker.

I decided to get a parent club. Given the choice between Bristol City and Yeovil, I took the former and the sent me two players for a loan. Both are far better than anything I am likely to sign in the near future

Stephen Henderson (http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff73/Mipipics/stephenhenderson.jpg), 20yo keeper
Stephen Turnbull (http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff73/Mipipics/stephenturnbull.jpg), 21 yo central midfielder

I have sent a scout to go around England to find players. He was last seen two weeks ago by the side of the A60 just outside Mansfield trying to hitch a ride.

Friendlies
Chippenham 0 - 2 Arlesey
I had none of my signings and the greys were awful.

Chippenham 1 - 2 Altrincham
We took the lead then fell apart in the second half and were lucky to lose by the single goal

Chippenham 1 - 5 Barnsley
Erm. At least we scored?

Chippenham 1 - 1 Ebbsfleet
Terrible news as we lose our 100% record.


To sum up, I am not confident

Away form of late has been dung http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif not won in 4 attempts and most of them have been against lower placed teams.

Playy Off Semi Final Leg 1

First leg was at home & we started brightly putting alot of pressure on in the first 10 minutes to get the upper hand. Ademeno had broken through twice before he scored the first goal with a fine run to force the gk into a save from a tight angle only to score from the rebound.

The rest of the half was total domination but we could'nt add to our 1 goal going into half time.

I kept things the same & sent the lads out with a positive view, 40 seconds after the restart Dadson broke broke the offside trap to smash a shot against the bar from 25 yards but as always Ademeno was there to slot home the rebound.

Sutton Utd didn't put any pressure on us & only managed one shot on goal which wasn't anywhere near enough. They were duely punished for this lack of chances by conceeding a 3rd goal in the 64th minute to yes, you guessed it, Ademeno to get his hat-trick & finish the first leg 3-0 up.
First Leg Match Stats (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/playoff1.jpg)

Playy Off Semi Final Leg 2

I took my side to the second leg away leaving everything the same after we totally dominated the first leg from start to finish. I had 2 enquirys for ym centre back Obeng from both Brighton & Dagenham which I both returned a 500k asking fee to scare them off. I didn't want to risk upsetting my player by flatly refusing the offer at this stage!

Sutton Utd start the game with more offensive moves in the first 5 minutes then the whole first leg but they couldn't do anything when Wilson won a superb tackle in his own half on the 6th minute to set up a counter attack. Swift passing from left to right opened them up for Dadson to hit the post from 9 yards only for Wilson to finish his move with the rebound being slotted home. Not bad for his first game back after 2 months out with injury!

Exactly the same as the first leg they just can't handle my midfielders pressure & the movement from my strikers. They didn't create 1 chance all half & were again on the recieving end when Jake Livermore smashed a superb 35 yard free kick into the top corner!

Being 5-0 up on agg at half time I decided to take off Livermore, Dadson & Ademeno to rest them for the final

If fans thought they were treated to a treat by Livermores goal in the first half they were rewarded with a contender when his substitute Stubbs did exactly the same in the 49th minute from 40 yards into the same corner!

More pressure from the away team resulted in a great long ball by my left back McKie that subtitute striker Taylor ran onto & smashed it home from 9 yards to put us 4-0 up in the 55th minute.

The onslaught continued & a foul on Wilson in the box resulted in a penalty which amazingly Wilson blasted wide! Shocking

The rest of the half was one way traffic but the scoreline stayed 4-0, Sutton Utd should be ashamed at themselves for only mustering 1 shot at the Hendon goal in 180 minutes of football & Hendon fully deserved there 7-0 agg win to setup a final against early season leaders Histon.

Histon had drew 4-4 against Merthyr Tydfill in the first leg away from home & only managed a 1-1 draw at home to take the tie to penaltys which they duely won 3-2 with no less then 9 missed penaltys in the shootout!
Second Leg Match Stats (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/playoff2.jpg)

Play Off Final

The final came with my squad reporting no injurys & able to play my full strength side at full fitness which was a relief. The 12 day wait was a nightmare praying for no training ground problems, my negotiation of 500k scared both clubs off & Obeng was happy for the final.

The 2 league games went 1 each, 3-1 loss away to Histin on the opening day of thes eason was overturned with a 2-1 victory at home later in the season. I feel confident but my lads have done so well upto now I couldn't be angry if we fail to win the final, as long as we give it a damn good go! The only negative thought in the back of my mind is my 13 game unbeaten run, will it be unlucky for me ......

Hendon 9/4 Histon Evens were the reported odds before the final but my players will clearly feel the game is there for the taking as we get the game going with the whistle.

We start brightly with a long throw on the left to Ademeno who releases a ball central to Dadson who shoots just wide from 30 yards.

No sooner had we had the shot & they broke down there right hand side for a freak goal in the 8th minute, disastrous start!

We don't fold though & keep attacking making a few half chances but no joy until the 29th minute when Jake Livermore smashes another beauty of a free kick into the top corner from 30 yards, 1-1 GET IN!

Half time comes with Hendon having the most of the game with 6 shots on goal to Histons 2, very tight but I feel positive we can push on from here to get the win!

The second half started very tight indeed & no shots of note were presented until the 58th minute when Histon shot well wide from distance.

That seemed to kick start my side as we went straight up the other end with Ademeno forcing the Histon gk into a superb save from 35 yards.

The half continued with Hendon making the better chances but superb saves from both Dadson & Ademeno kept the game at 1-1 in the 90th minute.

With my players in superb physical fitness I kept things the same until disaster strikes in the 102nd minute when loan player Luke Garrard gets sent off for his second bookable offence leaving me with 10 men!

Half time came with the score still locked at 1-1 & Hendon still proving to be the more offensive side with 13 shots to Histons 6 in the game.

The second half starts with superb play between my strikers only for Wilson to smash over from 20 yards with only the keeper to beat. One minute later & Dadson does exactly the same, more pressure continues & 3 more shots go past the post to leave the game ending on 1-1 for a penalty shoot out.

My nerves were shot to pieces as yet again we dominate the game only to avoid punishing the weaker team.

Hendon win the toss & choose to go first, Kyle steps up confidently but smashes it wide leaving me wondering if today just isn't my day!

Luckily for me there first taker Farman hits the post himself. Ademeno steps up with confidence like you'd expect him to & slots it in 1-0!

Nunn however repeats that with a good penalty to bring it back to 1-1 & Mawer misses to leave it 1-1. I fear for the worst as Murray steps up for Histon but it's saved! Youngster Stubbs steps up & calmly slots it in to leave them under pressure. Knight-Percival who has scored for fun in Histon colours this season smashes it wide to leave Hendon with the chance to win it if they score!

Up steps centre back Obeng to repay my faith in him & scores to send me up!

straight after this, the board say they are not renewing my contract and the media are speculating about who will take my job!

The end of the season was really stressful (http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3163/0809graphke5.jpg). We lost our best defender and our best player (http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/5974/0809perrytaylorxr6.jpg) because injuries. One of my youngsters (http://img125.imageshack.us/img125/8875/0809simonperkinsao0.jpg) prove really important in the last matches and basically save my ass.

The challenge for the next season is big and I can't find any good players on the market. I keep looking but nobody worthy wants to come.

Chippenham 10/11 - BSP

Being the idiot that I am, I forgot to take any screenshots of the end of season. So I'll take some of the league, league graph and transfers soon.

My youth and training facilities are due to be upgraded, board has said they would be done soon.

Came first in the league by 3 points, so off to league 2. Currently scrowing the player search screen for any good youth players that my scouts say have the potential to be leading League1 stars due to them usually being over-estimated.

Nothing else overly important, other than the board being in a ****er over long term expecations. Might just save the game and wait till the real patch and hope its fixed then. Or at least it'll give it a season to fix as sometimes thats whats required

Okay, question time.
I, like someone earlier, signed Bontcho Guentchev without a trial, and I did not notice whether I could scout him or not because I didn't have any scouts when I found him. But, I found him when he was still at Hendon, and started attempting to sign him at that point. By the time the deal was done, he'd been released on a free (and may or may not have been scoutable, but I didn't notice since I was already trying to sign him). Was this a legal signing?

Ok, after a rather disastrous start to the challenge, I decided to start over (still with Billericay and still with the same manager profile) and it's going much better now.
I finally got my tactics under control (sort of) and I'm about to start the season after having played 5 pre-season friendies (4 wins and 1 draw).

So i'm hoping it's gonna be better this time. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I, like someone earlier, signed Bontcho Guentchev without a trial, and I did not notice whether I could scout him or not because I didn't have any scouts when I found him.

By the time the deal was done, he'd been released on a free (and may or may not have been scoutable, but I didn't notice since I was already trying to sign him). Was this a legal signing?

Yes that's fine, you are able to scout foreign free transfers who's last club was English, it's the foreign free transfers who have not played in England that you can't scout.

I havent even played the 2nd leg yet! i Just wondered whether i am allowed to apply for the new jobs with the teams that have come up, or do i have to start new user? thanks

You are allowed to apply for jobs, provided the clubs meet the original criteria. Alternatively, you could add a new user or start a new game.

Guess what?

I went to almost every home game of theirs between '97 and '01 including the Fulham game you speak of, both the replay at home and the original tie at Craven Cottage. Went to a few away games too, including one up in Wales. Was much more fun than supporting a big team imo.

I lived about 10 minutes from their ground too. I remember the season they won the Unibond First Division, Steve Jones now of Burnley banging them in. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Quality aaberdeenn, small world heh. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Steve Jones was a super player for us, i was gutted to see him leave (although RMI benefited hugely from the £75,000 transfer fee they received). I've currently got a little RMI save on the go at present. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Welp Ive finally gotten to sit down and get my game with Matlock going. The pre-season wasnt very good as I only managed to beat my reserve team. The start of the season wasnt any better. My top signing striker and central defender were injured in the first 21 minutes of the opener. Lost the frist three games. Then the team started to get it. Ran off a 6 game unbeaten streak with 4 wins. Climbed from bottom of the table to 12th.

Managed to get Sheffield Wednesday as my parent club and they sent me Sean McAllister who has dominated the center of the park every game. Unfortunately I couldnt play him in my first FA Cup qual game and lost that 2-0 a couple minutes ago. Gonna sit down and hopefully bang out the rest of the season this afternoon. If I can finish between 8-12 I will consider it a good season as Ive never been that good of a FM player lol. Keep ya posted.

Off to a horrid start so far. Have only scored one goal in 3 games and have allowed 9. I'm having a horrible time getting coaches to sign and my players are horribly out of shape as a result.

Despite the patch notes saying it was fixed, and individual instructions (which i rarely ever use) tell my strikers specifically to make forward runs (with and without the ball), they seem to prefer to just sit in the middle of the park and stand on the ball when they get it until they either find someone to pass to or lose it. Its driving me insane.

Well i've had a pretty good start to my 3rd season in the BSN. I'm top and seem to be scoring goals quite well.

I thought i should highlight the record of a certain player of mine who i've had at the club for the past 3 seasons on loan from West Brom.

Stuart Nicholson has what i consider to be probably the best record for goalscoring of any player i've ever used on FM.

Played 93 (6) and scored 98 goals!!!

Hopefully he will carry on this amazing record for the next 6-7 months and get me promoted.

Spurs1979 - Hendon - 2009/2010 - Blue Square Premier

Well I just finished my summer transfer movements & totally adjusted alot within the club on both a staff level as well as playing level.

I got rid of every staff member I had as they were pretty awfull & I'd only had them on a 1 year contract just so I could scout & have coaches etc. None of my staff that came in are really shocking but I feel they're decent enough for this level that we're at. My new assistant manager is Tunisian national Dino Maamria who brings with him knowledge of Tunisia, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon & Algeria not that I've signed anywhere on this knowledge yet but it might prove helpfull during the season.

Staff ins & outs (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/transfers3.jpg)

My first task was to release no fewer then 12 players from there contracts after they had run out, I didn't intend on any of these to be more then a short term option for the first season so am happy to have released some funds for my wage bill.

On the playing front I decided to attempt to bring in 3 or 4 quality players & this was helped mainly thanks to my new status as a feeder club for Fulham FC. Immediately after me reccomending them I was offered 2 players & a 3rd soon after that which I duly added to help add some quality to my very thin squad. In came Adrian Leijer who has fitted straight into the centre of my defence to partner Curtis Obeng who is still attracting interest from various league sides. Also coming in on loan from Fulham were full back Jamie Hatch & attacking midfielder Nabil El Zhar who is playing in the role Junior Dadson had occupied last season to great effect.

Also coming in were free transfers Wayne Curtis & Andreas Arestidou who have gone straight into my starting 11. Charlie Henry, James Wilson, Nathan Jarman & Leon Osborne were also bought in on free transfers to provide cover for the bench & squad.

Transfers in & out (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y80/Spurs1979/FM2007/transfers2.jpg)

Season Targets

Well when asked what my targets were I decided to be brave this season seeing as I only said avoid relegation the first season & gained promotion through the play offs this season I decided to say I will obtain a midtable position. As things stood early on in the summer window I was starting to regret this as I was struggling to bring any players in & hadn't had the offer of Fulham as my parent club yet. I am glad to say now I feel confident of coming somewhere around mid table & maybe a cup run along the way.

Financially I am £17k in debt mainly due to my wage bill last season just being too much but this season my wage bill is £2100 p/w below my wage budget so I feel I should be able to bring that back closer to a positive figure soon. My club sold 282 season tickets with the expectation of selling another 100 before the deadline, my average attendance the first season was 1092 so hopefully I can improve on that this season but we will see.

Now for season 2 to start http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

as i said finances (http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee208/andy139s/1st%20season/5df8e1b0.jpg) were a problem so will have to release a few highly paid players and get in some decent cheap players next season

Pretty good season, finished 9th in the League (http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/2712/stam0910tablemy6.jpg) and got to the 2nd round of the FA Trophy. Form Graph (http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/5397/stam0910graphud5.jpg)

Made some great transfers (http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/7204/stam0910transfersvh3.jpg) including the Bulgarian, Super Simeon (http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/3341/stamsimeondv0.jpg) and Jimbo's favourite (http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/5863/stamkylece7.jpg). The squad (http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/1116/stam0910squadyx7.jpg) is pretty strong but needs some more work.

However my contract hasnt been renewed as of the last day of the league, despite great confidence (http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/954/stam0910confxv5.jpg), so I am marginally worried.

Goals for next season:
Pray for a new contract
Pray for achievable new long term plan
Bring in new better stronger players (hopefully some Bulgarians, islanders and Spaniards (got a Spanish coach))
Get into playoffs
Find some consistency

My main aim is to not get sacked. My 3rd season in charge of almost all FM games I have is a bogey season ands usually ends in disaster so wish me luck!

One of my midfielders just scored a fluke of a goal.
After a throw-in the ball ends up at his feet and he shoots it upfield. Since he's about halfway down on my side there's about 70 meters to the opponent goal but the ball is heading right for it. The opponent goalkeeper sees this and goes out to get the ball but he misses it completely and it gently flies on and crosses the line with the goealkeeper, 2 defenders and 2 of my strikers in hot pursuit. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

What's the chances of getting teams with 900 or less rating? I have a list of teams I want to try but if I'm only 1% likely to get them I'll try Tiverton who I can get.

I'd like Bashley (geographic), Maidstone (had a soft spot for them when they were in the league and want to take them back), Swindon S or another smallish team. Taking someone like Lincoln Utd and surpassing Lincoln C seems like fun to me but haven't seen them in about 20 reloads.

Am I living in daydreams if I want teams like Bashley (600 or so)?

Bedford Town - Blue Square South - Season Review 09/10

After a truly odd start to the season, where at one point my record was something in the region of [P20 W6 D1 L13] and i was either losing 4 or 5 nil, or winning 4 nil, i managed to hit a good cup run. i reached the FA trophy 2nd round and the sultana shield 4th round, both exceeding expectations and at the same time found some league consistancy.

but again, for every 3 games i won, i lost the next one. at one point i was able to look at the playoffs as a possiblity, but that passed and i settled into mid table 'success'. with a media expectation of 19th i was pretty happy, but couldn't help but think what could have been. when i suffered an end of season drop in form, i was worried i'd finish lower than my first season, but a victory in my last game 4-3 [winning goal coming in the 95th minute...] kept me in 12th, 2 places up on last year

Beginning of season 10/11 - the story so far

So for the second year running i offloaded about a dozen players who i'd only signed on a free the summer before, but this time i retained quite a few too. I also broke my self imposed wage structure to sign some prett good players. And i'm over wage budget for the first time too. Luckily, it seems to have paid off.

Its the beginning of october and i'm unbeaten in 10 games, 2nd in the league, and looking pretty good. Caton just won player of the month for september and i picked up my first manager of the month (http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l254/migwar/dafuge/motm.jpg)

sorry for the long update guys. i'll get in more regularly in future http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Merthyr Tydfil Blue Square South Season 09/10 - PROMOTION!!

Fb season tbf. We always looked like getting a play off place.

We finished 4th in the end, got through the play off semis [mini update above], and here's how the final turned out.

Lewes 1-2 Merthyr Tydfil

Ben Hopkins, 71 Christian Ribiero O.G, 10
Joe Gatting [pen], 28</pre>

We also did relitively well in the cups.

We got to the first round of the FA Cup, losing 4-1 to Yeovil.

We got to the 6th round of the Setanta Shield losing to Margate 1-0 iirc.

We got to about the 3rd round of the FA Trophy losing to some crappy team.

Here's some player stats:

Top Goalscorer - Derek Asamoah - 23

Top MOtM - Kaid Mohamed + Derek Asamoah - 9
Yellow Cards - Colin Daniel - 11

Season 2012/13 Review - Chippenham Town in League Two

After my playoff win last season, I was expecting a season of struggle in the Football League.

Final League Table (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/league8513.jpg)
League Positions Graph (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/leaguepos8513.jpg)

A great season, I really wasn't expecting this. I lost a bit of form in the middle of the season, but managed to turn things around and finish strongly.

Squad (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/squad8513.jpg)
Transfers (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/transfers8513.jpg)

The two Bulgarians that came in were good, but didn't really set the world alight. The top performers in my side were mostly players I had signed in my first season, in the BS South.

Board Confidence (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/confidence10513.jpg)

Since my contract is up soon, I've been keeping an eye on this to see if there is a bug as some people have mentioned. So far, everything looks fine and although I haven't been offered a new contract yet, the board sound happy enough to offer me one at the end of the season.

It's back to those damn playoffs again...

That sounds fine, since you can get a coach report on a player who is on loan with you.

In previous versions it seemed like if you were willing to spend some time you could get just about anyone. I've reloaded well over 250 times this version though and have yet to see absolutely anyone below 800. Even getting 900/1000 rep teams this year is only a 1/10 or so chance. Unless you get plain lucky, expect to be reloading LOTS if you want a specific team http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The lowest in the challenge at the moment is PoypleMonkeys with Harrow Borough with a rep of 750. There are some saves floating around of Banbury and Gloucester that are rep 800.

Personally I havent managed to get anything lower than Mangostfield at 850 to appear in over 300 reloads.

Thanks Rocklobster (great name btw - B52s fan?). I think I may go with Tiverton then.

I did also find Mangotsfield, and Banbury too. The clubs don't really interest me though.

Incidentally most people may have realised this but a quick way to find out which clubs are new is to go to your home screen and all but the really big clubs will be looking for a manager.

Anyone else have fans that are supercritical of your signings?

I've barely managed to put together a full team in time for the start of the season this year and the fans have been all over half my signings.

I can understand that in league football, but common, surely the fans can understand they arn't gonna see world class players in the BSS.

King's Lynn, AFC Wimbledon, Methyr Tydfill, Whitby and Halesowen (900 rep) all start with a manager. The rest of the clubs that I have seen don't, as far as I remember.

I found that quite often, usually when you signed a lot of players. They tend to pick on players who have made the odd few sub appearances so have low ratings.

Started my second season of the game in Blue square premiership now, I'm 6 games in & have won 3, drawn 3. Looking pretty solid but don't think I have enough just yet to go for promotion as my squad is very thin. If I get 1 or 2 injurys I will struggle so mid table is still my aim.

Brighton just bid 250k + 40% sell on fee for my centre back which I accepted only for him to reject saying his ability demanded a more luxurious wage. I'm happy in one sense because he is a top class centre back my assistant says would fit into a League one side but the deal was good for the club.

Onwards & upwards we go, more to follow .....

Failed to get the teams I really wanted to try so it's full steam ahead with Tivvy:

It's gonna be a harsh start with no staff or players. The Exeter and Plymouth links will help.

Chippenham Town 13/14 End of Season Update

well as i posted before you know i am now in league 2, but thought now that i have a little time i would post a more in depth if only slightly so round up of the season

Over all had a pretty strong season, after game 5 not dropping below the top ten.

League graph (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b219/jsar/fm1314/leaguegraph.jpg)

managed to finish in 5th place after a poor performance in the last 3 or 4 games of the season prevented me from making the top spot.

League Table (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b219/jsar/fm1314/leaguetable.jpg)

i went into the play offs as clear underdogs against a strong cheltenham side and only managed to pull of a draw in the Frist leg (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b219/jsar/fm1314/playoff1.jpg)

but managed to sneak in a 2 goal lead in the Second Leg (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b219/jsar/fm1314/playoff2.jpg)

This left me with a final against Burton a team in a game that the pundits said had a draw written all over it. and they where right with the game ending in a dreaded penalty shoot out, which i narrowly won.

Play Of Final (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b219/jsar/fm1314/playfinal.jpg)

Don't think so.

In the same game my best player just got injured for 2 to 4 months http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif starting to hate it.

And my defensive mid has picked up his 20 yellow card.

Okay, question time.
I, like someone earlier, signed Bontcho Guentchev without a trial, and I did not notice whether I could scout him or not because I didn't have any scouts when I found him. But, I found him when he was still at Hendon, and started attempting to sign him at that point. By the time the deal was done, he'd been released on a free (and may or may not have been scoutable, but I didn't notice since I was already trying to sign him). Was this a legal signing?

Yes that's fine, you are able to scout foreign free transfers who's last club was English, it's the foreign free transfers who have not played in England that you can't scout. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Ah, OK, I went back and looked at what the other person said again and got confused. Was a nervous wreck until I realized it wasn't a problem!

Has anybody noticed the change in the scout reports of your own players since the patch.

Before the patch, my scout was telling me I had players who would be a good signing in leagues 1 and 2. Im thinking, yeah got some good players here, should be pushing for promotion.

After the patch however, my scout report now only says that thje players in question with more ability for the higher leagues, says that they are excellent players for BS South http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I am really confused by this, more so because my ass man still mentions abilities to play in higher leagues..

Has anyone else noticed this, or is this just me???

Well I've gone for Tiverton Town (well at least until the patch is released. Here's my Profile (http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b351/stinger061/FM08%20Challenge/Profile.jpg)

So far it's been a good start. I was far more cautious in the signing of players this time around than i have been in the previous challenges making sure i sign only the players who will contribute something rather than taking the scatter-gun approach and hoping for some gems.

My favourite signing so far would have to be Lewis Hogg from my old side Bath who has never failed me in the past. Cherno Samba will lead the line after coming on loan from my parent club Plymouth and he will be joined by Andy Caton who scored a fantastic 2nd half hat-trick in our 2nd league match against Histon which we won 5-1.

Things haven't been to good on the discipline side with 2 red cards in our first 3 league matches. Let's hope we can change that or we could blow quite a few points.

27-10-2007, 18:53
Now this is just ridiculous. My first 4 games of the season have seen a total of 5 red cards (3 to me 2 to the opposition). Nothing out of the ordinary with regards to tactics with all players set to easy/normal tackling. What the hell is going on?

It's not seeming to get any better. It's now 8 red cards in 6 games with 4 to me and 4 to my opponents. I'll see what i can do once i boot my game up again to try and reduce the number of cards. 3 of my 4 have been straight reds also with just 1 being for 2 yellows.

1 game left for me in the first season and I'm crazy nervous... we've been up into 5th at various times in recent weeks but haven't been able to stay there, and now the table looks like this:
Table (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809onegametogo.jpg)

I'm in a good position, but I've gotta go away to AFC Wimbledon... while Lewes is home vs. Hampton & Richmond and Ebbsfleet is away to Bath. So a loss could get me in, but there's no guarantees. I'll be ecstatic if we can make the playoffs though, after the horrible start to the season we had, we've steadily climbed the table to be in the fight at the end, and there's not much more I could ask for.

Unfortunately, it looks like our star striker Marvin Robinson (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809onegametogomarvinprofile.jpg) (whom I've been singing songs about to the tune of Mrs. Robinson... such as...

Come on you, Marvin Robinson
Help us out by scoring us a goal

... erm, anyway...) will be out for the last game. Not what I need. I would hope he'll be back for the playoffs if we make it.

So, it's 2am here, and I really should be sleeping by now, but I shall stay up until this season is over! Update to follow shortly!

SonicAD - Chippenham Town 2008/09 Blue Square South Season Review

So, could we do it? A win over AFC Wimbledon would almost certainly earn us a trip to the playoffs unless of a large shift in goal difference for Ebbsfleet:
Final match: AFC Wimbledon vs. Chippenham (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809lastgame.jpg)

A clean sheet for AFC Wimbledon, and no surprise either, as I failed to notice before my last post that not only was my best striker out, but my #2 was as well, thus leaving me in dire straits. Still, if our rivals Bath win over Ebbsfleet, I could make it in, so let's look at the table:
Table (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809regseasontable.jpg)

Alas, no. Bath put up a good effort, but Ebbsfleet came up with a 2-1 victory, pushing themselves into the playoffs.

Still, we did much better than expected, so the season wasn't a total failure. Here's the rest of the results, continuing on from the midseason update earlier:
Results part 3 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809resultsp3.jpg)

And here's the final table post-playoffs, seeing Lewes win the final to move up to the Blue Square Premier. Final Table (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809FinalTable.jpg)

Transfers part 2 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809TransfersP2.jpg)

On a more postive note, star striker Marvin Robinson won Player of the Season (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809RobinsonPotS.jpg).

Score them goals, Marvin Robinson
They help us out much more than you would know

And, beside my having gone rather badly overbudget on the wages, the board is pretty happy with me.

Confidence summary (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y296/SonicAD/0809FullConfidenceEndofseason.jpg)
Kept it in the green overall on finances, and as long as I can do that I think I'll be okay.

Missing the playoffs like that killed me, here's hoping we can keep the momentum up for the next season and make a real push at promotion, letting these Bluebirds take flight. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

secondly, could someone draw a picture of the goal and give it to my hot young striker, Andy Caton. He's now over 10 hours without hitting the net...

Fraid its nigh on impossible to get anything less than 900. The lowest i've seen is Mangotsfield(850) so the chances of finding Basley are pretty much non-existent im afraid http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Jimbo, no offence mate, but we know how you feel, he knows how you feel and it's obviously not changed how he feels. Dafuge as already said he's staying on the list because he got to League 2 before it happened but he won't be updated further, which is perfectly fine tbh seeing how he didn't cheat to get to League 2. Can I suggest we just drop it because it puts a downer on the thread's atmosphere.

I had just about swallowed that after dafuge ruled, but he's in League 1 now and sitting atop of the list on the website. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I have gone to the effort of deleting his entry each time when I post the list, until he is removed from the website.

I wasn't expecting him to continue updating his progress after what I had said. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I'll knock him back a season to reflect the table.

Boreham Wood Season 2009/10 Blue Square South

After such a disappointing first season this was a key season for me. With my first 6 away games I already had more points than I got away in all of the first season. The form continued throughout the season and although I never looked like getting automatic promotion a play-off place was always on the cards. Here is the graph (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/graph_season2.jpg). I spent 2/3 of the season switching between 4th and 5th.

Play-Off Leg One
The first leg of the play-offs saw me travel to Newport County and what was a very cagey affair was settled by a 37th minute goal from Dax Hoogerwerf to give me a 1-0 win.
Leg One Result (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/playoff_legone_season2.jpg)

Play-Off Leg Two
Returning home with a 1-0 lead I was confident that I would progress to the final and the lads didn't let me down. They put Newport to the sword with a comfortable 3-0 victory on the day.
Leg Two Result (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/playoff_legtwo_season2.jpg)

Play-Off Final
So the final saw me matched up with Crawley who had originally finished 2nd in the league. My first bit of bad news came when it was reported the pitch was very narrow. My main formation relies on width so this didn't help. There is only one word to describe my teams overall performance in this game... AWFUL. The fact that it took them until extra time to get the winner is testament to their strikers having a pretty poor shooting day by their standards.
Play-Off Final Result (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/playofffinal_season2.jpg)

Final League Table (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/finaltable_season2.jpg)

Key Players
Lee Butcher (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/butcher_season2.jpg) - A young goalkeeper who isn't fantastic but he is solid and dependable. He may have conceded a fair few but the majority weren't his fault.

Simon Jones (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/jones_season2.jpg) - Club captain and the first of my two key defenders. Although lacking in the physical attributes he has the key technical attributes and pretty good mental attributes to boot.

Jamie Stevens (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/stevens_season2.jpg) - Another key player. His best position is centre back but all his games this season came at right back since i had a few good centre backs and no other right backs of any note. Big money (relatively) offers came in all season but he signed a new 5 year contract following the conclusion of the season.

Alexander Catalano (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/catalano_season2.jpg) - Fantastic in the defensive midfield role getting in 5 tackles per game before passing the ball forward to the attacking players with a 74% success rate. Another one of my improving youngsters he is like the Cesc Fabregas of the Blue Square South.

Darren Currie (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/currie_season2.jpg) - The old man of the team at 35, he is old enough to be some of my first teamers' father. A good contribution of 8 goals and 12 assists from the right wing but with his advancing years and with his stats deteriorating I see him playing nothing more than a bit part role next season.

Terry Ball (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/ball_season2.jpg) - My second striker, Terry contributed a healthy 19 goals and 7 assists in 28 starts. Away from home I only play 1 striker otherwise he probably could have got a lot more.

Dax Hoogerwerf (http://www.martialartsltd.co.uk/fm08/dax_season2.jpg) - Player of the season for the second time in a row Dax got 28 goals and 9 assists in 40 starts. Enough said.

Next Season
Next season I will be hoping to challenge for automatic promotion and hopefully finally get out of the bottom division. During the pre-season I will be looking to bring in a third striker, a left back and a right winger as a bare minimum. I would also like to hope my board will finally find me a parent club.
