    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).

    I'm sure all us regular Dafuge's challengers have so many systems for rooting out obscure players that we don't even realise!
    The first thing I tried to do was sign Kyle Wilson, but his side wanted £12k for him

    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!

    In the FM07 challenge (I think?) he would bag 30+ goals a season in BSP/BSN/BSS...

    Still time for the squad to gel though would not get to worried.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Any advice?

    You may have to hold a modifier button. For example, on my keyboard, I have to hold FN + PRT SC to take a screen shot.

    I think it was in the FM06 challenge, Jimbokav1971 built his team around him taking him all the way to the top. He ended up becoming the top scorer in the World Cup.

    I just went through and deleted them page by page.

    I didn't really want to delete them but I'd rather just keep the one account. I managed to hit the maximum number of images (something like 3000).

    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?

    I keep getting that news item as well, and related questions during the unveiling press conferences. Almost everyone I've bought have been free, so I guess that's why.

    I know.

    The question I love is the one where the press guy says something like "you got him for free nobody else did, is this a big coup for your club?"

    I'd actually like to reply "I have no money, he was available on a free transfer. Not really."

    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....

    Yeah, mine is and I set up proper. Might be due to the close proximity to France for Hornchurch. Jump on the District Line, get to Waterloo and bang you're in France. Well that's what my scout tells me he'll be doing.

    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.

    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!

    Season 2010/11 Review - Kingstonian in the Blue Square South

    League Table
    Past Positions

    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.

    Squad

    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.

    Finances

    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.

    Transfers

    Should hopefully quiet down a bit next season.


    Now I unfortunately need to head out, but playoff time when I get back tonight.

    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 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.

    Have tried holidaying through another season but despite this the lowest rep team i got after 50+ reloads was Marine (950). Anything lower than 900 would be very unlikely by the looks of it.

    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.

    But then they score 2, and we draw at home to lower league opposition in the cup.

    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?

    Truro are looking really unlikely to come up after the first season as they are to be promoted from the same league as Nuneaton who come up every time, due to their large rep.

    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.

    Sometimes the players will ask for a fee to terminate their contracts. But players who are keen to leave are generally willing to accept. There aren't any disadvantages really, aside from potentially upsetting other players.

    Printscreen is a one time deal, think of it as a copy and paste, you need to take one then alt+tab and paste it to paint or whatever, then save it, then do the next one.

    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.
