Trying to decide if its even worth spending money on bringing more coaches in, I don't think so, not yet anyway.

I've just found an interesting loop hole - I have a transfer budget of zero, yet I've just managed to sign a player for £2.5K over 4 years
Some good news and some bad news to end the night with:
Good - two 3-0 wins against Thurrock and Havant, and a draw against Forest Green have taken us up to 6th in the league.
Bad - my only DMC, the player my whole tactic revolves around, is out injured for 5 weeks. Plus I still don't have a decent striker to partner Lee Steele (but if he can keep up his current form that shouldn't matter too much).
Super Kyle Wilson?
Would anyone mind informing me why he is so 'super'.
Ok, I'm finally in. Reloaded a few times, and got Nantwich. Used to knock about in the town centre as a young 'ooligan, so thought I'd give something back to the locals by guiding their team to glory.
Up the Dabbers!
Cheers mate. Now that's out the way... it's time to really delve into this.
Bah had a crash lost some signings and my first BSP game...
Looks like theres a good chance ill be going down at the first attempt. Pre season, played 5, won 0, drawn 0, lost 5, scored 0, conceded 14. Bad times.
Nantwich - October 2010
I figure ten games in is as good a place as any to finish for the night.
It's been a busy three months - 22 players have been signed, three of them on loan and 13 shipped out, rather telling is that my first signing Marlon Beresford was given 4.5 starts upon signing, he now only rates 2 stars. I also have 6 Scottish players, which I'm pretty sure is more than I had in total on FM09 at FC United.
We didn't get off to the best of starts in the league drawing to a Gainsborough side managed by Brian Little - new Striker Fitzharris scored on his debut, but then got sent off, and to make matters worse Gainsborough's goal came in the 89th minute. The second game didn't go to well either as we lost to newly promoted Bradford PA 2-0, not helped by my first choice strikers being suspended and injured.
Though we finally found our feet winning our next three games in a row, before Stafford held us to a draw thanks to a wonder strike, we followed that game with a win over Droylsden before falling to 10 man Hinckley 2-1 (rather annoying I had beaten 10 man Hinckley 2-1 before the game crashed on me).
That leaves us third in the league after eight games with 14 pts behind Ilkeston (16pts) and newly promoted Merthyr who have 22pts, having won 7 and drawn just once so far, hopefully they cannot keep that up for the rest of the season.
Our other two games were in the FA Cup, in the 2nd Qual. round we claimed a 1-1 draw at Northwich before beating them 2-1 in the replay, will I embark on an unheard of for me FA Cup run this time around...
Since it's 4:45am, maybe the forums will be quiet enough to let me post my profile at, like, the 7th attempt...
After ages of reloading looking for a sub-1000 team, I eventually settled for Chippenham Town, one of the few 1000 teams I managed to get promoted. Yay.
Photobucket is being uncooperative at the moment so I will post a profile shortly. Started as Tonbridge Angels despite their slightly elevated reputation of 1200. Been a horror start however, 2 send offs and some poor performances in my friendlies so far
I am taking over at FC United for the second year in a row (Thanks to Gilbster for the save file).

Bah, it was all going so well but all of a sudden I've lost 6 in a row and am now 19th, just outside the relegation zone.
I've tweaked my tactics a bunch of times and nothing seems to work.
Gonna start a new 4-5-1 tactic from scratch rather than 4-4-2 to see if I can pick up a much-needed win.
Carshalton status update: Crashed in the middle of my third friendly, reloaded the autosave, crashed in the middle of my second friendly.
At this rate I might make league football by the time FM11 comes out
Well haven't had any luck in getting Hendon to come up but I do have a save for Bradford PA who I used in FM09 but I also have a save for Burscough so might fancy going them if I don't get Hendon soon
Right, I'm in. Holidaying - which is flying through by the way!
Going to try for Guiseley, anyone seen them come up. Live about 3-4 miles away.
Good luck everybody.
Just had Guiseley pop up the first save after reading your message, if you don't get it soon I will upload it for you Fatgra
Cheers Spurs, but got it on about 5th save.
Having problem with screen shot. Got brand new laptop, not familiar but every time I try a 'print screen', it prints a screen running in the background not the FM screen? Tryed the in game print, but just got a text version.
Thank you Gilbert for the file. My career begins . . .

No problem, links can be used by other people so hopefully someone will find some use for them, good luck!
dafuge, I read this in another thread - how did you delete your photobucket stuff?
Not off to the best start with Nuneaton, only 1 win out of 3
Taking over at FC United.
any recommended signings.etc?

Relegated at first attempt might give it another go at some point
Have just got Hendon finally, all last night & this morning of restarting! Will post my manager profile soon & get going on my game, will also upload it & post the link for anyone else to play as Hendon
Coincidentally Scab, Saunders got sent off when I played Thurrock
I have also just been relegated on my first attempt. 1 game left of the season too, so that wasn't even as close as it could have been.
Oh well I will be back in a bit, once I decide who I want next!
Farnborough 2010/2011 BSS Update: 1
Dont think my Profile loaded properly yesterday so here it is again:
Title odds: http://i780.photobucket.com/albums/y...Stitleodds.jpg

Results so far: http://i780.photobucket.com/albums/y...saug-sep10.jpg
a farely pleasing start to the season.Surprized by my title odds.would have been happy consolidating this season but seems a promotion push is more on the cards.My front two have been on fire with a goal a game records. Was pleased to keep my job and that it wasnt a tycoon takeover.
Just realised that Dartford (who are not even in the BSS/N yet) got to the replay of the FA Cup second round, living up to the reputation that Dafuge gave them I see.
Still doing friendlies at the moment. Has anyone else had a problem with touring. I set up a tour of Wales and two teams said no (typical) but when I tried to rejig the friendlies like usual it wouldn't let me change them through the button and I had to cancel the tour. Anyone else had this?
Also is everyone else getting the "amazing deal" news item for everyone they sign or am I just awesome?
Just you, a few of my deals didn't get that message.
game has arrived and im holidaying
dlnwba86 - King's Lynn
After the success of 2007, i can't resist going with King's Lynn, that and the fact i know one of there players makes it an easy choice.
I decided to predict a mid-table finish for season 1 but this feels like a step into the unknown....
Quick question, is anybody's board allowing them to scout France????
I swear everything was set-up as required but have noticed anyone else mention this yet.
I am also allowed to scout France.
Tonbridge - Chris Bemand
Just signed Kyle Wilson Hopefully it will change my inconsistant form abit! First 5 games, LWLWL.
Both Nantwich and the other teams promoted to the BSN at the same time are among the favorites for promotion. Are the bookies insane?
Yeah, I can scout France if I want to.
P.S. thanks for reminding me about Kyle Wilson, he is a free agent in my game, so looks like I could be getting him, bar any other teams snatching him from my grasp.
A new personal record - 100 reloads and no sign of Margate
Just been appointed the new manager of Horsham.
Lets hope they didn't hear how I relegated Canvey earlier!
I suspect this may be another quick 1 season attempt since I am awful at this!
yea i can scout France aswell
I've uploaded a save for Horsham if anyone wants it
So 3 games into the season, 2 draws and a loss. My only goal being an own goal
darn, looks like the reloading method carries on again
Season 2010/11 Review - Kingstonian in the Blue Square South
Didn't quite find the players I wanted during pre-season, but we held a pretty stable mid-table position for the initial half of the season. With complete disregard for the club's finances I still continued signing players, and eventually with a bit more talent on the field mighty Kingstonian sailed up into the coveted playoff spots. Never looked back since.
FA Cup | FA Trophy
These cup runs were pretty important to keeping the balance sheets in the black, but other than that I can't say we managed anything spectacular. The League 2 sides knocked us out with ease.
Changed a lot over the season, but Carl Asaba was a highlight from day one, joining on a free transfer aftering leaving Millwall. How Kingstonian seemed like a good career choice to him is still beyond me, but I'm certainly not complaining. Later in the season came Falkingham, Hand, Keltie and Coulson, forming a strong backbone I could rely on.
Down with the initial signings, up with the cup runs, down when the cup money dried up. We'll probably end the season in red; I really need to offload some players to get the (well within budget) wage bill down.
Should hopefully quiet down a bit next season.
Now I unfortunately need to head out, but playoff time when I get back tonight.
Code:Season Team League Finished Achievements 2019/11 Kingstonian Blue Square South 4th -
If anyone can get Ashford(Middx) to appear could you upload it?
Time for more reloading
Ahh, gutted. First game away against Eastleigh. Played well and had a plucky right go at it but lost out to a late own goal 2-1. Hope that's not a sign of things to come. I was actually gutted as well.
Would holidaying another season improve the chances of getting Margate prómoted???
I can't be bothered to reload anymore (last count: 128 reloads).
I think I will manage Canvey Island. They popped up for the 1st time in the last reload - If Margate should appear sometime within the 1st two seasons - I'll just switch.
Well - I'm off to build a CL-winning team

Just sold a rubbish keeper for £1
I have had Eastwood promoted. Cant see their rep on the list.
Just into September with FC United. So far, so good. Got a ton of players from Rangers and Celtic. The real star is most definitely James Keatings, 4 goals in 5, very pleased. In my first 5 games I won 2 and drew 3, and am currently sitting in 5th place. Hoping to go on for the play-offs and hopefully sneak my way into Blue Square Premier.
The adventures of Black Mama - Canvey Island
The public was stunned earlier today when long time Margate favourite Black Mama was appointed manager of Canvey Island - Profile picture
Only the future can tell whether B. Mama's new found romance will lead to glory for Canvey Island
to be continued.........
And I just realised that I have already beaten the record in last years record thread, which was 5.
10 minutes into the next game, keeper lobbed from like 35+ yards
Played two pre-season games and drew them both 0-0. I know where I need to improve...
Tonbridge - Chris Bemand
1-0 against bromley until the 87th minute, star cb gets sent off, bromley equalise istantly, then score the winning goal in the 95th minute. Not impressed. Not impressed in the slightest.
We scored!!! And then we scored again!!!
But then they score 2, and we draw at home to lower league opposition in the cup.
If anyone has holidayed through on a small database with no added top league players and get FC United can you please tell me as i have reloaded the game about 200 times and i am getting desperate
Missed out on the playoffs by 2 points, but reckon I could do with another season in the BSS tbh.
Review to come up later on.
Question - what does everyone think of mutual termination? I've currently brought in a few new strikers, leaving my previous one's redundant. No one wants to loan or buy them (even for free), so in order to limit money being spent on wages, I was thinking of terminating their contracts. Are there any disadvantages of this?
Back from holiday (the real life kind) now, kinda sucks that no on has gotten Truro yet but then again my new computer has not arrived although FM10 has, am undecided if I should bother installing it on this PC only to have to transfer over the save file in under a weeks time.........
I have stuck FM10 on this computer, as I didnt want to wait til Nov 18th at earliest to get my new laptop. Shame my family have now arrived back from holiday and will give me very little game time in next few weeks since its their computer.
Well my PC should have been here by now but I've since been told Monday/Tuesday although am starting to doubt that annoyingly, plus FM10 is staring at me and asking me to install it >.<
It sucks they have such a poor reputation in the game as they don't have one in real life and that several of us could miss out on the team we want due to an error.
My latest signing.Scored in his first game. my scout says hes coca cola league 2 potential.
Wanted Stourbridge but got bored reloading so I am the new manager of Nantwich.
looks like I am safe, 3 games left and 5 points clear of relegation (6 if you include superior goal difference) \o/.
after Prt Screening i cant find the picture anywere, any help?
ah i get it, cheers jsut figured it out

Bah, didn't enable attribute masking. Didn't really want to play as Sutton so it's not so bad.
Playoff Semi Leg 1
Grrr... First time all season we let this many in.
Im almost at giving up point with reloading
I'd started another game before where I'd unticked it so I presume it must have saved them settings. Ah well, will download the Burscough save from above.
