    He's not really that good though, League 2 standard.

    He's not really getting in the team. He's had one sub appearance but I'll probably get rid of him before long.

    I'm playing as Bradford PA - my fans are dissapointed with a 1-2 defeat against Bradford City, personally I reckon that's not too bad in a pre-season game.

    Carshalton early-December update:

    + The game has stopped crashing (after turning off all 3D but the pitch itself).
    + The board actually sees the benefit of parent clubs! Got QPR.
    - However, the 0-8 loss to Watford in the FA Cup First Round did put a damper on things.

    Currently 9th (I think) after an ugly start... and have just signed my very own Super Kyle Wilson.

    Well I've totally re-designed my tactic from a 442 into a 4132 because my wingers were just dreadfull & I kept losing out on the wingers I wanted to sign but my scouts were giving me some nice reports on some central midfielders so opted to switch to a narrow formation and target a couple of central midfielders. After taking around 10 players on trial I opted to sign Scottish midfielder Nick Main & Bulgarian Valentin Milenov (trial screenshot below) to help bolster my squad to fit the new tactic.

    I also took on another Bulgarian player on trial who was a former team mate of Milenov & after he came I also offered a full time contract, left back Dimitar Ruychev (screenshot from trial below) is rated as a potential league 1 player & is by far the most talented player in my squad so far.

    Now to try and get some wins under the belt!

    Milenov has been an instant hit with two MOM performances in his first two games which have led to our 2nd & 3rd wins so far this season, also for the first time we've climbed out of the relegation zone & into 17th place after 12 games! There is hope yet ....

    After the instant success of my Bulgarian signings I went & offered trials to a few more in positions I was weak in, unfortunately whilst I couldn't find any centre backs (definately my weak spot in the team) I was happy with 2 of the trial players & offered full time contracts to them. In comes Right back Viktor Yanchev and midfielder Iskren Ivanov to add some more ability to my first team.

    Currently Hendon are on an unbeaten run of 5 games which have included 4 wins (3 in the league & 1 in the FA Trophy) to give some much needed confidence to the side after our awfull start, my 4132 definately suits the team better with the technical ability of Milenov as my playmaker from midfield.

    Hendon start with a Bulgarian coach so they come up in searches I do, that little bit of knowledge he gives helps a great deal in showing these players up, otherwise you'd have to go through each Bulgarian team & find them that way. Have signed 5 Bulgarians so far & can't see myself signing anymore this season as those who are interested in signing for Hendon haven't shown me much when they came on trial, will also try & a Scandanavian coach in next season so I can start to find some youngsters from that part of Europe also.

    Just won the November manager of the month away after 3 wins & 2 draws from the 5 games we played, was worried about relegation at the start as we were really dreadfull playing with the 442 I made, however since changing to 4132 we dominate games & create more chances.

    Just waiting for the one team must be soul destroying, i am kinda on the olook out for Shippenham just beacuse they are who i played in the FM08 version of the challange and got them to the premiership so would be nice to take the reigns there again, but tbh any 1k or less rep club will do me.

    It should favour the bigger clubs in the World, which should make it more challenging and give a better spread of regens.

    Me and a friend decided to do this years challenge as a network game together. hope you dont mind


    Profiles:

    My Profile - Manager of the Glorious Merthyr Tydfil

    Butler's Profile - Manager of the illustrious Dartford

    We've played up to the end of November (Butler isnt connected when i took this pic) so far and its been fun as usual. We took two different strategies in signing players, I tried to sign the best possible players in every position and came just under my wage budget, while Butler has 3k left. I guess it shows in our results and the fact that hes gaining 1k a month and im losing ~13k.

    I started off really well but since winning 8-0 I've started losing form, pretty typical really , while Butler is just doing ok, winning some losing some. The last game we also played was against each other, needless to say there was lots of banter and bragging :>

    Will post another update end of season.

    Well I have been getting ready to take up this challenge and have finally settled for AFC Hornchurch! Up the Urchins!

    I am 4 games into the season and I am sick to death of leading 1-0 only to throw it away! However, in my 4th game I was 1-0 down and pulled it back to 1-1. Same result but it felt much better!

    Jsar, personally I've only has Burscough come up in around 70 reloads that were below 1000 rating, I do think Burscough & Marine are being played though but not going to check 7 pages to double check, it is very rare though it seems

    I've seen a bunch of 1000 rep clubs when reloading, including Kingstonian who I'm playing with. I believe Gilbster and a couple others had 950 rep clubs show up as well.

    Got tired of waiting for Ashford(Middx) to come up so have gone with Tiverton.
    Pretty poor starting squad but the adequate youth facilities wil hopefully produce some good players down the line.

    The chances for a savegame with them are probably zero. With a rep of 850 it would take a miracle.

    At least parking the bus kept the scoreline somewhat respectable.

    Still if your team is anything like mine Berbatov by himself would probably have beaten you. I think that if the minnow is at home they should get to pick the squad for the other team.

    With 10 games left of the season we sit in 6th place and 2 points away from 5th placed team Fleetwood so really hope we can continue the good form & sneak into the play off places, having been without my top goalscorer for 7 games he has come back at exactly the right time for these last 10 games.

    Yeah, I'm playing with Oxford City who are 1000, and I've also seen FC United and Chippenham both crop up.


    So now, instead of doing the essays and coursework I should be doing, I'm going to try and revive the fortunes of Oxford who are currently 8 games without a win, and in our last 10 games have only won once. Surprisingly though we're only 6 points off the play-offs, sitting in 12th place. I think I've certainly avoided relegation, but with our current form I don't know where the next win's gonna come from. Difficult times.

    Just had a preseason friendly against a very strong Arsenal reserves side which has made me very confident for the upcoming BSP season. We lost 2-1, but played some exceptional football at times. Our counter attacks even caught them on the hop and after a few tweaks i'm happy i've found my first XI for the season. Just looking for a few extra signings to strengthen the squad and we should be set.

    I noticed I signed the same GK as Dafuge & I imagine quite a few other players as my scouts found him very early after he was released by Celtic, Connor Fairley is his name & whilst he hasn't been amazing he has just been called upto the Scotland U21 side towards the end of the season for me. Think he's good enough for the BSP as well so won't be looking to replace him for a little while.

    I can tell the run-in to the end of the season is going to be ridiculously intense. Currently there are 14 teams battling for the play-offs with 7 games to go.

    Ok then... After triplechecking that everything was in order, I finally managed to start the reloading marathon (again) and decided to take the first club with a rep of 1000 or less that popped up. After only a few reloads Kendal Town managed to be promoted and I promptly took over.

    Gah! I keep finding good, unattached players, but as soon as I offer a contract it's leaked and a whole bunch of BSP/League 2 teams come in with better offers.

    What a result!

    They are two leagues above us so it was a shock to dominate the game like that. This puts us in the draw for the 3rd round so fingers crossed for a much needed money spinner.

    Just managed to get Peterborough as my parent club. Especially handy as they are now a Premiership side! Got a couple of loanees including winger Dominic Green who should tear up this division. Lost the first two games of the season with tough opposition in Cambridge and York, but just hammered Crawley 4-1.

    Just finished the first season & after the dreadfull start where we were bottom after 12 games I am absolutely delighted the changes I made to formation & playing staff paid off. The form we played the last 30 games would have been enough to win the league but thankfully it was also enough to see us finish in 5th place to give Hendon a play off game against Altrincham before the winners take on either Tamworth or Southport.

    Only have one injury worry and that is to young Scottish striker Sean Fitzharris but seeing as he is only my sub I am feeling quite confident we can beat any of these teams, infact we recently beat Altrincham 2-1 at there place in the league.

    What an up & down playoff semi final two legs that was, after getting of to a great start by scoring in the 11th minute at home we went on to concede 2 bad goals in the second half and lost 2-1 at home. Was really worried as I expected us to get a win at home to set us up for the second leg, was even more worried as my playmaker in midfield got injured during the game so missed the second leg and possibly the final. However we totally dominated the second and after being 1-0 up at the end of 90 minutes went into the extra time looking like the only team in the game. Thankfully we scored 2 more goals to win the game 3-0 and go through 4-2 where we will face Tamworth in the final!

    Play off leg one

    Play off leg two

    Season 2011/12 Review - Kingstonian in the Blue Square South

    League Table
    Past Positions

    Changed to a very rigid, aggressive strategy this season with many long balls up to the strikers or to the wings which seems to have made us very hard to break down. Combine that with a bit more successful midfield play contributing with a decent number of goals and it was enough to grab the additional points compared to last season to win it all.

    FA Cup | FA Trophy

    Proud to have beaten Cheltenham, but let's just say I didn't have high hopes for the game that followed... ^^;

    Squad

    I'm actually quite happy with the players at my disposal at the moment, all we definitely lack is good backup on some positions. I don't expect to make dramatic changes for the BSP, but depending on what the scouts come up with I might not be able to help myself.

    Transfers

    The Chris Wilding loan didn't last long as I didn't realize that requesting a 2nd parent club (A) replaced the first, and (B) cancelled all loans from the first club. The other 3 signings were key ones with Mäntylä taking the place next to Coulson in central defence, Smith taking over on right midfield and Wilde playing quite a lot up front with varying success. Finally, Gavin Massey was shipped in from new parent club Watford, but didn't leave much of an impression and ended up spending most games on the bench or outside the squad.

    Aim for next season: To avoid relegation and to keep the finances in the black.

    This is from the OP:

    Assigning parent clubs and loaning players is completely up to the player, although it should be noted that on occasions a parent club can lend players which will make the first season or two slightly less of a challenge. It is completely up to you how you play this one, but everyone knows real men don't use parent club loans. Personally, I like to assign a parent club for financial benefits but never take any players on loan from them.
    It is up to you really.
