It's only taken 13 games but i have my first clean sheet http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif. I've had to abandon my new short passing tactic and go back to something resembling my conference tactic of "Boot the ball up to Andy Caton and have him score" and it appears to be working.

Say hello to the new manager (http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/4783/profilecd4.jpg)of Tiverton Town!

Even managed to sign this young man (http://img507.imageshack.us/my.php?image=chernosambavi4.jpg).

Looking good, fairly well off financally and with the striker above I should be well set for life in the Blue Square South.

Bedford 2nd season in premier - small update

This season I'm struggling a little less than the previous year, currently 11th, just outplayed chealsea and beat them 4-2 http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (although they are in the relegation battle.. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif) One nice thing is that my feeder club Margate that are in blue square south and always fighting for relegation are now on the way of getting promoted thanks to 6 loans I gave them. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've signed him, in my new game as manager of Tiverton. He's a cracking player for that level. Plymouth sent me another striker - Ruben Reid - and between them they rip up the BSS.

Well, after my Matlock game hit the wall, and I stopped enjoying it, I have decided to start the challenge again. I guess it was bound to happen anyway, what with my Matlock game starting before the 2nd beta patch... and I think 8.01 deserves a fresh start.

So here it is!

Margate - 08/09 - BSS Pre-Season Report

The arrival of Margate (http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee220/MachinegunHead/clubinfo.jpg) also known as 'The Gate', into the Blue Square South prompted chairman Andy Joyce to think fresh, and he decided to hire rookie manager Machine Gun Head (http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee220/MachinegunHead/profile.jpg) to take the driving seat. Being promoted with only 4 signed players, all quite young, Gun Head has his work cut out for him.

Fans have begun to question his somewhat tentative approach towards the transfer market, wondering why he has only signed 'just' enough players to field a team. All the while the league comes closer and closer. Luckily for Gun Head, his new squad of players managed to brush Hucknall aside with a 2-0 away victory. Fans are attributing this to the fantastic signing of Zavon Hines (http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee220/MachinegunHead/zavonhines2008.jpg). During a pre-season press conference, Gun Head had the following to say:

"To be honest, I'm as surprised as the fans that Zavon would even consider signing for us. In fact, so was his agent. As I handed in my contract offer for Zavon, his agent told me 'not to bother', but I did anyway. Looks like the first of many miracles for Margate!".

Various betting agencies don't see Margate leaping out of the Blue Square South, but don't expect them to drop back down into the backwaters of English football, Gun Head and The Gate are here to stay.

just got a touchline ban for 1 game? lol, although i was playing away at chester in blue square prem, played 6 w1 d2 l3 so far and was winning 3-2 having come from 2-0 down against an undefeated chester, the ref gave a penalty in the 95th minute when only 3 minutes were spose to be added on, i was not impressed so told the press..

i cant believe i wound down the clock and had 4 corners in a row then they broke and my player tripped their player when the ball was going out of play anyway, i hate my life sometimes, although i would have settled for the draw before hand http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

dlnwba86 - Wimbledon - BSN - 2008/9

I took the wimps way out of this challenge by going for Wimbledon. I managed to get promoted at the first time of asking this time round, it was a close battle between ourselves and Havant & W.

League Table (http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r237/dln424/tablee.jpg)

It was primarily thanks to my loans of Victo Moses and Moses Swaibu that i managed to get promoted, although my squad was good enough without.

One very annoying point is the bonus awarded to the players, i was 180K in the black and after a bonus i'm now 100K in debt, surely this wouldn't be allowed in real life. It seems like the board should impose a bonus limit cos now i'm crippled. Thankfully the decent reputation means i can still atract some good young players released from championship clubs. Hoping for a top half finish next season. Still feel bad though...

This wont be a countdown by any means but I just lost vs 6th place Hartlepool (in the 90th minute). I haven't scored for 4 games now.

Luckily enough Andy Caton has just returned from injury. It's all going to be down to him

C'mon boys, just one more match. Think the final should be against Brentford who were leading after the first leg 5-1.

Ok I'm scared, I called that completely wrongly. The second leg was won by Colchester 6-0 giving them a 7-5 aggregate win. Just hope I get their defence from the first leg! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

He was rated as a league 2 midfielder from when I got him and is now apperantly a good signing for a league 1 club.

Found him on my player search screen thanks to that Bulgarian coach everyone keeps signing.

Hey jimbo..
Bradshaw just got injuried again for 2 weeks, it seems like he cant keep fit for more than 2 months this season!

I finally managed to sign my first non-English member of my backroom, a Swedish scout. I've been trying for 2 or 3 game years to get one in.
I missed out on signing the usual Bulgarian staff member and it looks like he's retired in my game.

So I'm in the process of trying to get a large number of Scandinavian trialists in. 80% of the offers understanably get rejected and of the players who have joined 10% get the trial terminated within a day.
So far I've got 2 or 3 that could be good signings for the club.

I really do need to keep an eye out for more foreign staff members.

It would appear that as much as turning the game off in the middle of a winning streak is sure to make you blow it, it also works in the opposite direction.

After a whole lot of frustration last night and constantly blowing 2-0 leads we have won our first game in 13 matches. We are still in the bottom half but I'm confident of avoiding relegation. There are no words to describe how bad my defence is, it's almost like having 4 Titus Bramble's at the back and Paul Robinson in goal.

That clean sheet that i posted about yesterday remain my only one of the season, we have played 31 games http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Ok well I started again.
Was having no fun with my Ilkston game, so gone for Tiverton this time round.

Signed one or two of my old faveourites - Obeng and Magno Viera to name but two - and being Tiverton meant I had Plymouth as a parent club who sent me both Cherno Samba and Ruben Reid as strikers, who quite frankly **** on the BSS. Oh for a left back and a keeper!!

Another intersting signing for me has been former England international Dion Dublin, who finally signed after after 3 months of the season. His experience has been important at the back for me so far.

Anyway here's the Profile Screenshot (http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h160/countyfan52/FM2008/JohnHornsbyProfile.png). Am half way through the season so far and things are going pretty well if I'm honest.

Now I'm annoyed. Just received a 150K bid for my 3rd choice striker. I'm way over budget so the cash would be a god-send. I of course accept only for the player to reject the contract offer. To make matters worse he is off contract here at the end of the season so will probably leave for nothing as i can't afford to re-sign him

Hemel Hempstead - League 2 - 2017/18 End of Season Update

Yet another topsy turvy season for Hemel Hempstead. Nothing to write home about and I'm fairly annoyed with the final position. Couldnt even get to the playoffs, and ended up in 8th by a point. I just cant get any consistency at the moment.

No idea how to progress for next season. The club is losing money by the day, and without a new stadium with potentially more weekly income I can't see a way our of our financial situation.

Porto, who are good, but not as good as Milan or Inter. I've had a look at their team and they have a few good players, but also a couple of really bad players who are in the first 11.

I nearly always use normal.

I put a high league bonus on my first ever season, some of the players had "Inspired by the high league bonus" or words to that effect for they General happiness however we finished 12th so obviously they weren't that inspired.

I put a low one on for the 2nd season and we won the league, so not to sure on what effect it has on the players.

I think i am going to need to go and see a psychiatrist after this season. I firmly believe that no matter what i do my team will concede goals. It's gone from 1 a match early in the season to at least 2 a game now. Our results aren't to bad but the should be better. Many 2-2 draws and 3-2 wins/loses. I have bought in new defenders and keepers but it's making no difference.

The FM gods have decided my team cannot keep a clean sheet. Ever.

Premier League:

The team was a bit more inconsistent in the league this season, especially away. Five of our six defeats were on the road, so that's a bit disappointing. We went into the last game of the season against Liverpool, away, needing a win to snatch the title from their crasp. But the team could only manage a draw, which meant a second place finish.


Champions League:

Check the posts above to see what happened...


FA Cup:

Got to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, but went out against Manchester United in a match they totally dominated at Old Trafford.


League Cup:

Made it to the Final of the League Cup, where we were up against Man City. The game went to penalties after City came back from being 2-0 down after 10 mins to draw the game 2-2. Unfortunately, they won the pen. shootout 5-3.

My thoughts exactly. I was scouring the list of out of contract players, and I recognized the name Zavon Hines and thought, "QUALITY!". So I offered him a contract regardless of what his agent thinks of my club, and Zavon agreed. My only problem with him in my current save is that he seems to be really prone to injury. He has had 3 minor injuries after 5 matches into the season, and I'm just hoping he doesn't break a leg.

On the positive side, my other striker (Rhys Henry) is averaging over a goal a game... must think he is Theirry.

On a note of Zavon Hines, he performed very well in my team all the way from the South to League Two... with 79 apps, 26 goals, and 16 assists... capturing 22 MOMs!

Sadly I let him go afterwards and he is stuck in the South with Lewes, but still performing well.

From 2008 to 2013 (what im in now), he has gotten 11 injuries... with only 3 a month or greater and most of them within a week... so not injury prone in my game.

Want some good pickups? Get Curtis Obeng... Man City dropped him for me in the South, and he's still amassing 40 apps for me in League 1... 205 apps for me in total, in his 5th season.

On a random note... has anyone else seen lots of teams docked points for going into administration? I've had Derby and Charlton in the Championship and Wigan in the Premiership all docked 9 or 10 points in the 2012/2013 season.

I've had a really tough time keeping my finances stable... with cups in the preseason, i normally start each season about +2million, and even though i stay around my wage budget I always end the season in the -$... and thats before the bonuses are paid out, which takes me back to about -$2mil each year. If it wasnt for preseason games and season tickets, I would be in so much debt right now...

Rashidi, it depends on your bank account. Im in between the CC1 and Championship (before the "league update") and can only scout the UK, but I do always start every season with a negative bank account... so if you keep your bank healthy, they will eventually let you wander off. Thankfully though I have tons of knowledge of the world and can still find some good prospects out of England.

The game is seriously beginning to bore me. Every match it's the same thing. Stupidly high number of shots with my strikers missing at least 10 one on one chance between them, my defence parting like the red sea no matter what tactics i employ usually resulting in a 2 goal defeat and on the odd occasion we will snatch a draw from the jaws of victory after leading by 2 goals inside the first 20 minutes.

I have never had such glaring defensive problems that i haven't been able to fix with a shift in tactics or even change in personnel. I'm fresh out of ideas

I've noticed from past experience that teams rated to struggle in the Championship are still restricted to the UK whereas mid-table and better sides are opened up to all of Europe.

The board have probably decided on expanding the new stadium before you moved in and you are sharing MF Dons stadium until the work is completed.

Tiverton - Blue Square Premier - 2010/11 End of Season Update

Brief update this time, since I'm not really in a mood to dwell too much in this sucky season. Tiverton demoted back to BSS after finishing 21st, in a season in which none of our players managed an average rating above 6.80, our tactics didn't work until it was already too late, and bad luck struck from all sides. To round it up, we went into the last match of the season needing a win, and hoping Dorchester would draw or lose. In the end, Dorchester lost 1-3, and we drew 3-3 against Grays, conceding the draw in the 94th minute after a corner kick http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif.

No shots for now, I only want to start the next season as soon as possible and forget about this quickly. Grmpf again.

After 19 years of:

1.Failed Cup runs (best being semi-final)
2.5 Promotions (BSS to Premiership)
3.Yo-yoing bank balance
4.Constant player changes
5.Constant staff changes
6.Fear of mediocrity


Chippenham town F.C have just been crowned Uefa cup champions for the season 2025/2026 with a 2-0 AET victory over Panionios.

My finances are not great. I have 700k in the bank having paid out 500k in bonus payments. Good job I went up in the play offs as it made me 250k from the gate receipts

Still no sign of a new contract though. They want me, I want to stay!

The maximum capacity at Oriel Park is 12000.
So the only problem is that UEFA decided to hold the final at a fairly low capacity ground.

North Ferriby United

Had a game earlier with Gloucester, but didn't get into it.

I started a new one and saw that no one? has been North Ferriby (950 rep) yet.
I kept restarting and finally got them promoted.

i've just witnessed a minor miracle. 3-0 down against merthyr tydfil with 15 minutes to go. my first choice strikers not on the pitch, and we go on to get one back. then another. now there's only 2 minutes plus stoppage to go. yep, in goes number 3. then... their striker goes down in the box, ref waves it away, then they score from a corner, no... wait, it's a foul. the final whistle goes, we've got a draw!!!!

Matlock 09/10 Review

The season started well for Matlock in there first season in the BSP. We were 1 and 2 in the table until December. Then our depth started getting exposed with the mass amounts of matches in short time due to Cup runs. League form suffered and we dropped. Cant say I was to upset when we were knocked out of Cups. Took some injuries in February . Luckily our early season form allowed us to limp into 5th place at the end of the season and secure playoff:
Table (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd109/goaliemanpat/BlueSquarePremierStages.png)

Playoffs:
First Leg (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd109/goaliemanpat/MatlockvKetteringSplitView.png)
Second Leg (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd109/goaliemanpat/KetteringvMatlockSplitView.png)

Final (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd109/goaliemanpat/StockportvMatlockSplitView.png)

Matlock are promoted to League 2!! Now had we lost the playoffs I wouldnt have minded much as 1 more season in the BSP coulda helped the team develop more but cant turn down a promotion chance. Hopefully we can avoid a drop right back down next season. Hopefully Nottingham send some players down to help with that.

New Contract (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd109/goaliemanpat/PatMosesInbox-9.png)

Matlock are now a professional side. Now that I can get my coaches and players on full time contracts heres to hoping they develop quick.

Haha thats great http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
He got 2 minutes in a freindly against croatia and got a 6 rating.
He has some competition on that position, walcott(28) is really good and have better attributes, and Rooney is still strong at 32 years(so far scored 13 goals in 15 matches in the league)

Jarmy (http://img441.imageshack.us/my.php?image=jarmyqj1.jpg)

My Player Of The Year; didn't really start well with only 2 goals in 10 games, but after that, damn!!
He was on fire for the rest of the season, really saved our arses a lot.

Ruddy (http://img511.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ruddyav3.jpg)

Him and Bullen were a rock at the back as usual when fit, barely anything got past him, which was typical because the other teams were carp.
Still, with Bullen retired now, a new defender is a must.

Magno (http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=magnolf1.jpg)

The third of my best players worth a mention, played on the right wing most of the season, but that didn't stop him from pitching in with a few goals, and a few handy assists as well.

Happy. You might have good forwards in Viera and Jarmy, but it's your defense that impresses me.

Ruddy looks carp if I'm honest, but it's those decent physical stats and his determination that pull him through.

Why does your best eleven have a formation without a striker? I have worked out that the formation used is based upon that in your preferences section of your profile - what does your formation here state?

Jimbokav1971
04-12-2007, 15:22

1. What a weird formation. What was the idea behind the withdrawn front man and nobody further forward?

2. Radoslaw beben can play in a few positions http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Any chance of his "position" screenie and did you re-train him for any of them?

3. I recognise the name Scott Cousins, (I think). Was he a real player at the start of the game?

4. I was about to ask for McClellalnds "history" screenie but it's there already http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif.

5. I see that the striker who has scored over 100 goals for you only makes the bench. That looks more like it's because you don't play with a striker. That formation is VERY weird http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Amazing, impossible. im justly proud of our first season in the Premier League.
I thought we for sure would be battling to stay up, but the whole season we were between the spots 8-15.

FA CUP!

Ive managed to stay away from all the major teams with wins against Luton, Bolton, Reading, Wolves and Newcastle.
Then on to the finals against Sunderland.
Great finishing from bradshaw saw us win the game 4-1 and crown ourself as FA cup champs !!!

Played really good and was worth the millions!

Bradshaw (http://img391.imageshack.us/img391/5959/12052007041453iv6.jpg)
Again, a good season by Bradshaw.
He got hes first call up to the English Squad, and he got his first cap.
He only got 3 minutes in a freindly against Croatia, but thats a start http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
He had some problems with injuries, but they where mostly little injuries, the longest were 4 weeks.
He managed to score more goals than he had apps once again. and ended his first season in the premier league by winning the top goalscorer award!!!
He also became MoM in our first FA cup win !

Had a HUGE improvement from last year http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Two great defenders and a new striker are really making the difference and to my surprise I am dominating.. only lost 2 matches till now with Real Madrid (3-2) and Liverpool (2-1) both away.

So many questions, all about to be answered!

Kccircle- My actual formation is now 4-1-3-2-0, I changed it when I moved up to the Premiership because I wanted to score more goals.

Jimbo:
1.At first I only had 1 front man but wasn't scoring enough goals but I decided to go for 2 which has served me well for 3 seasons now, the idea was to make it more of a team game and not just rely on my strikers because if he/they have an off day then you will struggle.
In all competitions:
Goals and assists from def- 7 goals(20 assists)
Goals and assists from Def mid- 18 goals (6 assists)
Goals and assist from Mid- 29 goals (44 assists)
Goals and assists from Att Mid with farrows- 56 goals (30 assists).
Just for the record I am battering teams but that's the SOT to goal ratio thing.

2.Radoslaw Beben (http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x147/freelinet/Beben.jpg), I did retrain him for the Right Back pos.

3. Scott Cousins was a real player (he's since retired), I bought him on a free 10/7/2008

4.McClelland was a monster but there was only so much he could do he struggled a bit when we were in league 1 so I had to let him go.

5.Nathan Joynes was a players for me in the lower leagues when I actually played with a striker.


Stinger- Don't laugh, last season in all competitions I didn't concede that many in fact only 42 goals in the prem (2nd best defence).

Keepers stats in all competitions:

Paolo Cesar (first choice)
pl 52/ conceded 53/ Clean sheets 17/ Avg 7.06

Rene Heerkens (back up)
pl 6/ conceded 7/ Clean sheets 2/ Avg 7.33

Mehmet Aygun (crap youth)
pl 1/ conceded 2/ Clean sheets 0/ Avg 8.00 http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

We were never below 13th and a great run of form over christmas and into the new year would mean that we were always in the running of the playoffs. Once we got there anything could happen and it did!

Hemel Hempstead - League 2 - 2018/19 End of Season Update

The season started and ended and I dont think the team even noticed. What a pathetic attempt at football displayed and they finished 15th.

The board are disappointed with the finish in the league this season, and there is no guarantee I will be offered a new contract.

Have a horrible feeling next season will be a relegation battle in a league I should be looking to get out of easily. Wont have money for transfers and my wage budget will probably need to be lowered significantly.

Sometimes a minor tweak to the tactics or playing someone on the fringe of the first team squad or a reserve player (with a high morale) can help.

Perhaps playing a little more defensively might help you out to help get a draw or a win that can break the slump. So stop your full backs and/or defensive midfielder from making forward runs and knocking back the mentalities of the players by a notch or two.
Possibly also reduce the long shots and try through balls settings that way you might retain more possession.

One final thing to chech is the condition of your players. If it's too low then you might conceed late goals to rob you of some points.

After enjoying ther play of BSN/BSS, I thought I'd give dafuge's challenge a go.

Looking through the homepage I found this difference in the rules:

here: # Go on holiday until 19th June. (Hint - saving on 18th June may give you a better choice of teams by saving and reloading the game). This shouldn't take that long, perhaps about an hour.

2013-14 Season, Bedford Town, League 1

League 1 Table (http://img359.imageshack.us/my.php?image=league1xy6.jpg)

I had a disappointing start to the season, with 2 of my best players, my keeper and my number 1 centre back refusing to sign new contracts with a year left so i decided to cash in on them. I did manage to install 50% sell on clauses and a buy back price should things go belly up for them.

After only 1 point from my first 4 games i thought i'd be in a relegation battle, but managed to pull things together and after a run of 9 wins around christmas found myself not far off the playoffs, but my team fell back into old habits come the end of the season and a 12th place finish was where i deserved to be.

I seem to be scoring plenty of goals, but also conceding just as many, i think if i had managed to keep those 2 players promotion via the playoffs just might have been a possibility. As for the summer im looking to sell off a couple of players and see if i can bring in some defensive quality and hope for a play off place next year.

A small tip that i found helpful when i was going through a particularly bad spell of form, check your reserve fixtures and when theres an easy game coming up make all of your first team available for it. Hopefully you can spank the other reserve team and gain some much needed morale, it helped turn my bad form around.

YOu've a couple of good players there. Wedgbury played for me until League 2. Ian Waler - 26 goals in 15 is amazing. Couple of key players and you'll surely achieve top spot next season. Look out for my two best players Caton and Harkness.

Tiverton Town - Season 2011/12 - League 2

Possibly my worst season i have played in this challenge both this year and in previous versions. not because of our league position but because of our defensive performance. In the end we managed a total of 4 clean sheets, in all of which my keeper was MOM which highlights where our problems are.

I am in a disastrous financial position and will probably struggle to bring in new players for next season. I have gone back and watched a few of our games to work out where i am going wrong, the answer? 98% of our goals conceded are coming straight up the middle. I can't explain why but oppostion strikers are simply walking through for clean shots on goal.

I need answers and i need them fast.

For what it's worth Andy Caton was again the standout with another 21 league goals taking past 100 for the club. He will again be around next season but i will lose a few as i simply can't afford to re-new their contracts.

Possibly play a DMC to provide more protection for your central defenders. Or perhaps modify the DC's instructions so that they'll actually close down a player.
Without knowing your tactics and player instructions there's not much more I can help you with. But reading through the Tactics and Training forum will be a big help for you, it helps me when I have a problem with my tactics.

As for financial problems, I usually tend to sell a couple of players that are on the fringe of my first team squad at the end of the season. I use that as a means to raise some transfer money, but you might need to do that to let you improve the contracts of those players who you do want to keep and are first team regulars.

Thanks for the advice. I have tried playing a DMC but it has not proved to effective. For it to work i think i need a better player than the one DMF i currently have at the club. I think it's almost certainly a case of just tweaking my defenders instructions until i find the right balance. I have got in a couple of new players for my back line plus a new keeper so maybe that will also help.

Financially i seem to be looking a little better. The board have raised my wage budget although i still have no transfer funds but thats not a problem. I'm looking at this season as one of consolidation and hopefully a mid table finish.

Ok well a small update - I've not had a lot of time to play recently so have only made it half way through the first season.

Basically I can't find anyone better than I already have which is annoying. I am in desperate need of a left back, a right back and cover for goal keeper, left wing and up front.

Currently playing with two loan strikers up front, who when at least one of them is fit we play well and generally win. When neither play though we are awful as I am having to resort to a couple of youth teamers.
Same for keeper - my only keeper is a loan.

I need some more players fast!

Hitchin. Conference South. October 2009.

Current league position 15th.

I'm getting battered every week at the moment & we just dropped from 6th to 17th in the league after losing Hatchy to injury and suffering an appalling run of results.

I don't play the same way as many of you and I just sign players that my scouts find. I appreciate that this is a long term challenge, but I just don't seem to be making any progress at all at the moment and I think I will give this a little break for a while.

I'm not getting much time to play at the moment and as I'm not really enjoying this save I'm often not playing even when I do have time.

Worksop - Conference North - mid season update 07/08

Started with very little in terms of a squad, only 4 youth players on the book 3 of whichwere useless and the other one was a goalkeeper so im using him as a backup.

Luckily when i joined the club they already had a parent club, nottingham forest, local team and not too big to reject my offers of loans but a quick look through there reserve team gave me some hope of having a nucleus to build around.

Over the next couple of weeks after numerous trials and loan offers been accepted i suddenly had the makings of an ok team i though, so into pre season we went....

worksop 3-2 worksop reserves (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/reservesgame.jpg)
worksop 1-13 notts forest (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/forestgame.jpg)
worksop 0-8 lincoln (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/lincolngame.jpg)
worksop 0-6 eastwood (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/eastwoodgame.jpg)
worksop 1-2 havant & waterloo (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/havantgame.jpg)

so not the best pre seasons!

after that start i was just hoping to match the boards 'mid table' prediction, and got off to quite a good start..

August
Played 6 games, a busy start to the season, won 5 and drew 1, only conceeding 5 goals and 3 of those were in the 3-3 draw with Blyth. Loan signing and soon to be worksop hero Emile Sinclair scored an impressive 9 goals in august and i soon realised i'd got myself an impressive loan striker. My highlight of the month was a 5-0 thrashing of king's lynn, away from home.

September
Not as rosy as august but still ok, playing 5, winning 1 drawing 3 and losing away at histon, my first loss. We also beat Sheffield FC in the FA cup 2nd qualifying rd. conceeding 10 goals in 6 games was a worry. Saying that, the fans were sent home happy after we beat big local rivals Gainsborough 3-2 in a thriller at babbage way.

October
A very poor month that could cost me a shot a promotion. Played 4 league games, losing 3 and managing a draw away at struggling gateshead. Knocked out of the FA cup after a replay in the 3rd qualifying round against grey team Prescot Cables. The only up was another victory over rivals Gainsborough, this time 2-0 in the setanta shield.

November
Finally getting back to winning ways, playing 4 league games and coming out with 3 wins and a draw. Another victory in the setants shield means i was through to the 3rd round, and a win against welling in the FA trophy 3rd round after a replay meant maybe a shot a the big boys in the 1st round. I scored a lot, 25 goals in 7 games, but also i conceeded 15. Emile Sinclair scored a massive 17 from the 25 goals in the month.

December
Back to struggling in december unfortunately, playing 4 league games winning 1, drawing 2, losing one. Dumped out of the Setanta Shield 3rd round at home against staylbridge. I got the big club in the FA trophy, we travelled the short distance to mansfield only to be hit for 6, losing the game 6-1.

Hi all, long time reader first time poster.

I actually started this game a while back just before the beta patch. It’s my second go at it, I started one before this one with Matlock but got sacked because of the confidence bug. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Anyways, I said to myself if I ever make it to the Premier Division I’d share the story. Well my Chippenham Town Team have finally made it to the promised land of big TV sponsorship deals. So here goes… http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

First Season BSS

The squad at Chippenham was bare with only the usual 6 youths.

I got introduced to the board. I suggested they go for jugs with some of their own. They went off and had a right laugh with the owners of Bristol City who became my parent club. They sent me left wing / striker Peter Winn (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009PeterWinn.jpg) and Steve Henderson (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009StephenHenderson.jpg) a goalie. I sent back a case of coldies to say thanks and hinted for Frankie Artus (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009FrankieArtus.jpg) who was kicking about at their reserves. Things were looking up, I had three star players off the bat.

After signing some backroom, pre-season was spent signing anyone who my scouts thought could tie their laces and boot a ball in a general forward direction towards my loans. It went well and halfway through July I had a small but quality squad.

We started the preseason friendlies with a 0-4 thumping from Bolton Reserves. But the guys got their act together quick smart and followed up with convincing wins against non-leaguers Bishop Sutton, Grantham, Bishop Auckland, Canvey Island and Bacup. Morale was high and we were ready to go into the Blue Square South in good form.

We kicked off with a 5 match winning streak where we scored an incredible 16 goals. But when BSS heavyweights Dorchester came to town, we were brought back down to earth and suffered our first lost. It was a tight game but Dorchester slotted one in just before the break and sealed it with a second in the final 10 when we were pushing for a draw.

The team recovered quickly with a nervy away win at Baintree which was much closer than the 3-1 scoreline would suggest. But the loss to Dorchester had obviously affected confidence and for the next 5 games consistency was MIA. We suffered another loss and scraped two draws here.

Things changed when we went to Bromley. Bromley was tipped as strong favourites, but came away at the wrong end of a 7-2 hiding. Everyone was happy, even the board! They sent an email over and invited the boys to come have some lagers. We went on a massive pubcrawl that would last a glorious 12 matches where we remained unbeaten and claim pole position.

Fierce rivals, Bath, were slated for 13. Still drunk, the verbal jabs were already flying in the media. But 13 is an unlucky number and the Chippenham team turned up with a hangover. Our fans left the stadium wanting a refund after a 0-1 loss at home.

We won our next two before falling out of the FA Trophy to BSP side York and dropping another game to Eastleigh. Dorchester was next on the cards. It was either revenge or a third straight loss. Dorchester were 2nd on the table and in good form, fresh from three wins on the trot. Another win for them was vital to maintain the challenge. The first 20 minutes was open with both sides attacking, thankfully it was Peter Winn who got lucky and popped one in after 20 minutes, we were looking good. We closed down until halftime and came out of the break pushing for a second until the final third where we shut down again after being unsuccessful. It was our undoing as we couldn’t hold, Dorchester squared up in the 90th. The season was winding down, our lead in BSS was now cut to 5 points and we were hadn’t won in 3 games. Dorchester now owned a 4 match unbeaten run.

Disappointing Baintree was next up and we held firm for a 1-0 win. We managed another draw for the next game, although our lead had been cut to 3, our morale was still on the up before our crucial Setanta Shield 5th rounder against BSP Halifax on TV.

At the stroke of 23 mins club vice captain Chris Lines drilled a piledriver spot kick from 40 yards out to give us a lead against a vastly superior Halifax. We put 10 men behind halfway for the remainder and as luck would have it Halifax had one sent off in the 75th, seven minutes later Halifax’s substitute Colin Leiper got injured! Halifax were now down to 9 men!!! We took full advantaged and got a second and third because of it! Chippenham were in the Quarters after an unlikely 3-0 at Halifax!

Another pubcrawl was on the cards and we went on a 7 match winning streak which saw us claim prized scalps such as Basingstoke (5th) and BSP’s Tamworth in the SS Qtrs with a thrilling 1-0. The march also meant romped home with the title up before finally dropping to BSP Exeter in the SS Semi’s. The rest of the season was spent playing my future prospects and training my assistant manager to handle games http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif only returning for a 2-1 revenge at Baths home ground. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Wrap Up

It was a huge season as we cleared the league with 6 or 7 games to go. I’m feeling pretty good about going into BSP if I can find a good striker and a goalie. To be honest it felt a bit like cheating having the three loans in. I want to stop the teams reliance on loans though so if that means spending a few seasons in BSP so be it.

The Table (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/LeagueTable2009.jpg)
The Squad (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009Squad.jpg)

The Stars

GK - Steve Henderson (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009StephenHenderson.jpg) (Loan from Bristol) – 11 clean Sheets for the season, he’d let the occasional goal in cos he was tieing his shoe laces but all in all he was like a big fridge in front of the goal.

DC - Guy Branston (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009GuyBranston.jpg) – He looks like a right hard ******* and he played the same way, hardly ever losing headers and intercepting loads of long balls. Only a 6.54 average rating but in matches the little dot that said Branston always seemed to be at the right place at the right time.

DL – Sonny Cobbs (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009SonnyCobbs.jpg) – A physical monster at this level. He’s fast, dominant in the air and his mental stats are awesome. On a good day, which is often, he brings in 12-15 intercepts and gets forward a lot. He’s also the club captain.

DM – Mitchell Bailey (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009MitchellBailey.jpg) – Despite having good stamina stats he runs outta puff a fair bit but hes good for three quarters of the game and holds the midfield firm. 7.11 rating and 7 assists from a guy with forward runs set to rarely.

CM – Chris Lines (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009ChrisLines.jpg) – Club vice captain, playmaker, dead ball hero and everybody's favourite tutor! 10 goals and 11 assists at a 7.31 rating, he’s the ticker of the club and my favourite! I just wish he had more influence as his personality is listed as fairly loyal and he’s already got Chippenham as his favoured club, he’d be the club captain in a snap.

ML – Junior Brown (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009JuniorBrown.jpg) – 6 goals and a massive 19 assists from the pacey winger at a 7.18 rating.

ST – Peter Winn (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009PeterWinn.jpg) (Loan from Bristol) – A natural Winger but at this level an awesome striker! 37 league goals in 37 starts at a massive 7.51 rating.

Future Club Stars

DR / DL – Daniel Ward (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009DanielWard.jpg) - brought to the club at just 16 years, he got a fair bit of play time and returned a 6.96 rating when he wasn’t being dominated :P

MC – Mark Hayes (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009MarkHayes.jpg) – At just 17 years he’s pretty raw but has good stats in the right areas, great with the passes, high workrate / teamwork and is pretty creative.

ST – Warnie (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009Warnie.jpg) – I have high hopes for this guy. Bought to the club at a tender 15, he was my second signing. He made his debut at 16 years and 3 days becoming the youngest ever player to play for the club. 9 goals and 8 assists this season, I’m hoping he becomes a club legend. Coaches reckon he can play in the championship one day.

ST – Peter Carroll (http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg209/_BFE_/2009PeteCarroll.jpg) – A touch on the slow side, but at only 17 he may well turn out to be a good target man for the club.

I just had a couple of bad scares.

I'm in the January transfer window and one fo my best strikers and left back are out of contract at the end of the season. Neither one of them were willing to discuss a new contract with me.

Then a couple of Scottish sides offered them both contracts. Even though the striker still wasn't interested in signing a new contract I offered him the maximum the the board would allow and he accepted a 2 year extension.
Then I went to the left back and he decided that he is interested in signing a ne contract and I managed to get him for another 18 months.

Worksop - Conference North - End of season update 07/08

I was hoping to push on after christmas on my last update, but unfortunately i fell at the last hurdle.

January
Started off promising, with 3 wins but finished up with 2 draws and a loss, still not too bad, losing 1 from 6. My promotion hopes were lifted after the peformances in januray.

February
Again february was promising without being spectacular. I only played 4 games but manages 2 wins, a draw and a loss.

March
This really was the big time, make or break for us, and just when i didnt need it Striker Emile Sinclair was out for 2 weeks. The month started with a thrilling 4-3 win over Hinckley away from home, with 3 goals in the last 20 minutes sealing it for us. All downhill after though, a 2-2 draw at home to struggling gateshead, followed by two defeats to lowly farsley and away at tamworth. This pushed me down to 5th in the league just holding on to a playoff spot but gradually getting caught by the chasing pack.

April
We were definately in last chance saloon here, and it looked like we were going to sneak into the playoffs, with a fantastic 3-2 win at Vauxhall. However yet again inconsistency hit the camp, and a 3-3 draw at home to harrogate was followed with 2 more poor results. Struggling Hucknall managed to sneak a 2-1 win against us, and another team struggling, nuneaton nicked a point off us.

May
The final game of the season and unbelivebly we were still in control of our own destiny, a home game against Altrincham was our last. We were 1 point infront of burscough with a much better goal difference, and 2 points infront of Histon, also a better goal difference. Unfortunately we failed to win yet again, a 1-1 draw and a win for burscough meant they leapfrogged us, and got the final playoff spot.

Gutted we couldnt hold on, but our inconsistency cost us. There was 4 or 5 games throughout the year we dominated but only drew so its our own fault. I dont have much of a squad as such, a lot of older players and key loan players so ill be looking to strengthen my squad with some younger lads, and desperatly try to keep hold of emile sinclair. If i can add some younger players and keep hold of my loan signings i see no reason why i cant be thereabouts come the end of next season.

My clean sheet issue is no closer to being solved with the new season. Conceding 2 goals per game so far this season although its only been about 5 games. We are scoring a few to but it's highly frustrating to be letting so many in.

Hey Jimbo. In my last game I was trying to play the same way as you, only signing players my scouts found. But they found no-one worth anything.

However I was thinking about how managers in real life would sign players, and they would all have access to a list of players on a free transfer so I sent my scout out scouting those players. Hasn't found me a lot more but some which has made me better...

Bedford - Premier - 17/18 - End of Season Update

This was a fantastic season, the most consistent I've had since beginning the challenge. Basically the team remained the same as last years, sold my big striker to Bayern Munich for 18m and bought 2 solid defenders a great tight winger. In January I had to sell my best player (chairman http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif) but his replacement was good too. Played my African striker for the 1st time since he was on loan for 2 years due to the work permit and he was.. simply devastating. In the premiership had a great start winning the first 6 games and we remained 1st throughout the whole season http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif my only three defeats coming with arsenal, Liverpool and man city. The good thing is my team is still young overall and can only improve http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Euro Cup wasn't that difficult, passed the group stage easily and was close against lazio in quarter-final but we got trough. Than got trashed by Benfica (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/eurocupsemifinal2ndleg.jpg) (4-0 agg.) in the semi-finals.

League Cup was the same final as the last year only that now arsenal (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/leaguecupfinal.jpg) won it not us.
In the Fa Cup we were beaten by wigan in the 5th round.

These are by best 11:-

GK: Heslop (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/heslop.jpg) - showed some solid goalkeeping this year.

DL: Baris (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/baris.jpg) - had a great season, wanted by half europe. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

DC: Mateus (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/mateus.jpg) - my new defender, real class.

DC: Tchokounte (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/tchokounte.jpg) - the other central defender, these 2 made the difference.

DR: Marcelo (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/marcelo.jpg) - young brazilian, seem promising enough.

DMC: Diaz (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/diaz.jpg) - promising player, great season too.

ML: Damm (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/damm.jpg) - bought him in january to replace my best player.. did good.

MR: Gerritsen (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/gerritsen.jpg) - bought in january too, has great stats.

AMC: Catarama (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/catarama.jpg) - another young and promising player.

ST: Sibeko (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/sibeko.jpg) - 1st season playing with us (he was on loan) and was really devastating.

ST: Connolly (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/connolly.jpg) - for the 5th consecutive season he was great.

ST: Alopaeus (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/alopaeus.jpg) - although not in 1st 11 he had a great season too.

Worksop - BSQ North 09/10 Pre Season Update

Pre season started well this year, with last years star player, loanee Emile Sinclair from Notts Forest agreeing an extension to stay on loan for this season. I was delighted, he got us a load of goals last year.

A few returning faces, and a few new ones gave me a squad that i liked, i can see us being genuine contenders this season, if we get the rub of the green with injuries.

Pre season games turned out a bit better aswell this season..

Worksop 2-7 Peterborough
Worksop 1-0 Worksop Reserves
Worksop 1-1 Mansfield
Worksop 2-0 Eastwood
Worksop 1-3 Notts Forest.

Squad 09/10 (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee107/craigjuk/FM08/squad.jpg)

Hopefully the league campaign will start off well and i can get promoted this season.

Well when you concede 5 but score 7 what the hell do you say to your team? especially against bromsgrove in the cup, well i think you slate the defense and praise the attack? not sure what to make of this performance hope i don't ship goals like that in the league now

Bedford - Premier - 17/18 - End of Season Update

This was a fantastic season, the most consistent I've had since beginning the challenge. Basically the team remained the same as last years, sold my big striker to Bayern Munich for 18m and bought 2 solid defenders a great tight winger. In January I had to sell my best player (chairman http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif) but his replacement was good too. Played my African striker for the 1st time since he was on loan for 2 years due to the work permit and he was.. simply devastating. In the premiership had a great start winning the first 6 games and we remained 1st throughout the whole season http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif my only three defeats coming with arsenal, Liverpool and man city. The good thing is my team is still young overall and can only improve http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Euro Cup wasn't that difficult, passed the group stage easily and was close against lazio in quarter-final but we got trough. Than got trashed by Benfica (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/eurocupsemifinal2ndleg.jpg) (4-0 agg.) in the semi-finals.

League Cup was the same final as the last year only that now arsenal (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/leaguecupfinal.jpg) won it not us.
In the Fa Cup we were beaten by wigan in the 5th round.

These are by best 11:-

GK: Heslop (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/heslop.jpg) - showed some solid goalkeeping this year.

DL: Baris (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/baris.jpg) - had a great season, wanted by half europe. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

DC: Mateus (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/mateus.jpg) - my new defender, real class.

DC: Tchokounte (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/tchokounte.jpg) - the other central defender, these 2 made the difference.

DR: Marcelo (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/marcelo.jpg) - young brazilian, seem promising enough.

DMC: Diaz (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/diaz.jpg) - promising player, great season too.

ML: Damm (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/damm.jpg) - bought him in january to replace my best player.. did good.

MR: Gerritsen (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/gerritsen.jpg) - bought in january too, has great stats.

AMC: Catarama (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/catarama.jpg) - another young and promising player.

ST: Sibeko (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/sibeko.jpg) - 1st season playing with us (he was on loan) and was really devastating.

ST: Connolly (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/connolly.jpg) - for the 5th consecutive season he was great.

ST: Alopaeus (http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff101/lethal87/alopaeus.jpg) - although not in 1st 11 he had a great season too.

Hey leth4l87, congrats from a fellow Bedford Town manager. You've done a great job. Pretty amazing finances too!

So how have you found the step up through the divisions? I'm currently languishing in League 1 for the 2nd season with things not going great, found it a pretty big step up.

Have you managed to produce any quality youth players yet through your academy?

Good Luck for the Champions league next season.

Im also participating in this competition, with Chippenham, as you may have seen in my first update. But was wondering, do you watch all the matches or just set the tactics and line-up then go on holiday for a day ststaing the tactixcs and lineup cant be changed? Because I am watching every game, and it seems to take ages to do one season, whereas some of you are flyig through seasons with updates quickly... Can you all let me know? :P

Thats a good question i have 3 days and 5 hours game play and i've only done a season and a half, i think it just does take a long time, myself personally watch every game, maybe grab the odd cup of tea im im ever 3-0 up, maybe once in a whole month real life http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
but yeah i didnt even think of going on holiday or anything, but my preference would be to do each game individually http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hitchin. Conference South. October 2009.

Current league position 15th.

I'm getting battered every week at the moment & we just dropped from 6th to 17th in the league after losing Hatchy to injury and suffering an appalling run of results.

I don't play the same way as many of you and I just sign players that my scouts find. I appreciate that this is a long term challenge, but I just don't seem to be making any progress at all at the moment and I think I will give this a little break for a while.

I'm not getting much time to play at the moment and as I'm not really enjoying this save I'm often not playing even when I do have time.

Sorry http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

Hey Jimbo. In my last game I was trying to play the same way as you, only signing players my scouts found. But they found no-one worth anything.

However I was thinking about how managers in real life would sign players, and they would all have access to a list of players on a free transfer so I sent my scout out scouting those players. Hasn't found me a lot more but some which has made me better... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Jimbo plays by the LLM rules though which don't allow that.

Jimbo already knows this, but I think the LLM rules are dated and have just become a way of making the game harder rather than what they were supposed to be which is a set of rules that make the game as realistic as possible. I don't believe for one second that the only way real life managers find players is by sending their scouts out with no instructions on specific players to look at.

dafuge, if you trial a player you cannot scout then you can sign him right?

Yes, if you trial them then you can get a report which is usually more detailed than the ones the scouts can provide.

As long as those players you have found are from your player search screen, that should be fine.

lol 1 spent about 45 minutes maybe an hour looking through free transfers, then i saw a guy and his club wanted 200k, i have 600k so i thought yeah, good investment, and my blind one legged scout said he's be a class league one player, i signed him and he's played about 10 games in my 100 in charge and is pants, i cant even sell him for 5k lol, its mistakes like that that are taking my time up http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

well i searched around and found 1 slovenian (Uras Obal) and that lead me to find some others "Marko Milanric, Admir Koren and Zlatko Kvas" i also trialed some french players "Pierre Joseph-Dubois and Sammy Mawene"

and there were some players from "anguilla" but they came on trial and were not very good and some of them went to other BSN/S teams.

When you say you searched around, what do you mean?

Do you mean you found them using your player search, or you went out and looked at some Eastern European squads?

07-12-2007, 10:06
A BSN/S (cant remember who) team raised interest in Obal, so i clicked on his name and thats how i found him. And then when i signed him, i had some other slovenian players in my search screen part.

and the anguilla players where done in a similr way, although i didnt sign any of them.

i think signing Obal raised my knowledge, as my "World Knowledge" has rasied slightly

Hitchin Town 2008/09 - 4th Blue Square South

Table (http://img267.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tablejp4.jpg)

so that meant the playoffs....unfortunately i just fell short. heading to extra time and then they score in the 90th minute. Playoff Semi Leg 2 (http://img477.imageshack.us/my.php?image=playoffzh1.jpg)absolutely gutted.

i started off well, and finished well, but was just a little bit too inconsistent at times. i feel i've got a pretty dcent team, and ith a few key signings, could actually challenge for automatic next year. it's certainly the aim!

Squad (http://img477.imageshack.us/my.php?image=teamzo8.jpg)

special note goes to star midfieler Morrison (http://img153.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mozlq2.jpg) who had a great season. but without this man Walker (http://img477.imageshack.us/my.php?image=walkerdk6.jpg), signed halfway through the season, i wouldn't have been so close. i can only wonder what he'll do in a full season

YOu've a couple of good players there. Wedgbury played for me until League 2. Ian Waler - 26 goals in 15 is amazing. Couple of key players and you'll surely achieve top spot next season. Look out for my two best players Caton and Harkness.

Good start though </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

cheers. he is my 1st choice defender i think.

does anybody know how to do the 'fan day' thing? i'd like to see if i can get a few more fans

You can't organise one yourself, the board arrange them when they think it is appropriate.

that's a bit annoying. the scouting thing you mentioned, are you allowed to use the transfer centre to find players, ie the list it gives of players released

I would avoid that as from memory it includes details about players who you shouldn't really know anything about. Last time I checked it wasn't linked to your scouting knowledge which it really should be.

07-12-2007, 11:02
it's a bit of a grey area. i have been using it to look at released players, and filter their playing history. i then still follow the method of giving players a trial if i can't scout them

to be fair it doesn't really give you an advantage as it doesn't include everything, and even if there are platers, you can't generally sign them in the lower league anyway. i would say it is sort of like a transfer list though, i mean anyone could go on the internet for example, and look at transfers that have been mad in real life

It's definitely a grey area, that's one of the reasons I didn't want such strict rules on signing players. The rules of the challenge are left open so people can use whatever method they like to sign their players, as long as they can scout/trial them.

Out of interest, do you know of an internet site that lists players released from everywhere in the world?

brod
07-12-2007, 11:12
well a full list, i'd guess not, but things like bbc and sky sports are pretty comprehensive with regards to news

i'm not trying to justify anything here, it's just a method that is available on the game, and you can still scout and trial people which is what i've had to do for all of the players i've signed. that and being forced crap players by my parent club!

Aario - Halesowen - Season 2 (09-10) BSP - Final Report

Well I have finally finished my second season. I did not restart after the patch I just patched at every oppertunity and carried on the same save as I was lucky enough to avoid all the major pre-patch issues (except large scores in the game but strangley never in games involving my team). So in answer the question earlier this afternoon I am approaching 8 days of playing time and have completed 2 seasons!! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif (Watch all games on at least extended highlights)

Anyway my season - if anyone can remember back I posted a half season summary ages ago which stated that I started very poorly in the league (lots of last minute defeats etc) but my form turned round after a couple of good results in the FA Cup. This lead to a 3rd round FA Cup game at Blackburn (still in Prem) which I obviously lost but the finacnes were helped a great deal http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I also performed well in both the SS and the FAT reaching the semis and quater finals respectively before being knocked out by Oxford (who went on to win both cups) both times http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif. They also won the league while due to fixture congestion my revival stalled and we eventually finished 17th - never really in danger of relegation as there were 4 very poor teams.

I remember a lot of discussion here some time back about loan players who were too good for the division - I only had 2 players from my parent club (Port Vale) and they managed one sub appearance between them - but some of the AI clubs were really taking the mick (I will post screen shots in a bit of some of the loan stars who ripped my team to bits http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif)

So aims for next season:

1) get a new contract - have asked they said yes but nothing offered yet and now getting news items saying the are considering my position and possible replacements (I did promise a top half finish and they are not too happy about the finances - hopefully my good cup runs will save me otherwise this could be the update of this save!!)

2) maybe look for a "cheat loan" player myself if the AI teams are doing it http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

3) Pace, pace, pace and pace is going to be my new transfer policy

4) let lots of my current squad leave as it is far too large as I expected to be getting reserve fixtures and I didnt get entered into the league and I have a lot of dross eating up my wage buget

Comments on the post pated game as opposed to pre patch - scoring seems far more stable - other issues did not affect me anyway

Congrats to all who are doing far better than me - off to hit continue a few times to see if that contract arrives http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Hey leth4l87, congrats from a fellow Bedford Town manager. You've done a great job. Pretty amazing finances too!

So how have you found the step up through the divisions? I'm currently languishing in League 1 for the 2nd season with things not going great, found it a pretty big step up.

Have you managed to produce any quality youth players yet through your academy?

Good Luck for the Champions league next season.

Thanks!

Money is no problem when you are in premier.. u have loads of tv money. And this was my 3rd year in premier now hehe. From League 1 to championship was a hard step, better stay more years in league 1 and then get promoted by winning league one, not as I did cause I then found it hard in championship..

When I had an excellent youth academy I produced some average to good players, but nothing special. Now that I have state of the art youth academy http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif some players seem pretty promising.. one of them will be a leading star in premier according to my coach http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good luck in league one u will be the 2nd one to bring Bedford to the premier http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Dafuge I have updated my profile in the site but I can't add winning the premier in achievments.. or u must add it? http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
