    Ah, fair enough.

    Got an international break for my team as two people are in the U21s and 1 is in the Northern Ireland full team. Organised a friendly with Newcastle United, which will bring in roughly 70k in gate reciepts

    hmm, a board takeover is closing in, transfer embargo and rumors of a consortium keen on installing Hessenthaler as the new manager....

    FC United of Manchester – Blue Square South – 2011/2012

    With our media prediction risen dramatically from bottom to 10th, I was hopeful of another play-off place or, with a bit of luck, automatic promotion.

    League Table


    A highly disappointing final position with a number of cheap goals costing us throughout the season, losing 14 games was never going to be good enough for promotion.

    Squad

    Sam Ashton
    – decent season, 23 clean sheets is impressive and will hold the number 1 spot next season. 16-year-old Clive Dolby is his back-up
    Luke Garrard – new signing, slotted in at right-back and handled defensive duties well.
    Adam Tong – Another good season from the centre-back, played every game and will be first choice again next season
    Declan Gallacher – Former Celtic youngster made 47 appearances, part of the defence with the 2nd best record in the league.
    Simon Garner – Key part of the back-four and chipped in with 8 assists, carrying on from last seasons good form.
    Carlos Roca – Played up front and impressed for the last few games, but spent most of the season on the wing, chipping in with 9 assists and 5 goals.
    Nick Main – 11 assists and 4 goals from the star midfielder.
    Frankie Low – The Rangers youth product rotated with Declan Freeman and Joe O'Sullivan for the season, with none of them able to hold down a permanent spot in the team.
    Jerome Wright – Our most creative player with 14 assists from the left wing.
    Bradley Gray – Lost his place late on in the season after an unimpressive goal tally of just 8 in 38.
    Kyle Wilson – An astonishing return of 48 goals in 50 games means he has scored 85 goals in his 2 seasons back at the club. We rely on him far too much.

    FA Cup

    Didn't quite match our run last season, falling to League 1 Swindon in the 1st round.

    FA Trophy


    Had an easy run to the 2nd round, where we put in a decent performance but lost out in the end to Stalybridge.

    Finances

    Looking fairly healthy, and I'll try to keep it that way.

    Aims for next season:-
    Simply, automatic promotion. We have a decent squad, where the younger players of last season will be more effective next year so I feel we have a good chance, as long as we keep hold of Kyle Wilson, of course.

    Merthyr in BSP, hovering around play off with the cash balance firmly in red , 700k last time i checked. Got a 3. round match in the FA cup away to Leeds, currently in the premiership, so hopefully that'll bring in some much needed income

    Right Im starting now. Got bored waiting. Will reload a few times trying to get Boreham Wood, but then might have to settle for someone else.

    By the way, I know editing is strictly speaking not allowed, but is it ok that I've changed the names of various competitions (Premier Division --> Premiership, EURO Cup --> Europa League etc.)?

    2010/11 BSN - 7th
    2011/12 BSN - 7th

    2011-12 Season - Nuneaton Town

    Blue Square North: 4th (Promoted via Playoffs)
    FA Cup: 3rd Round (lost to Leeds)
    FA Trophy: Semi-Final (lost to Harrogate)

    Summary: Much better season this time! That's not to say we didn't still have problems, dropping from title challengers to 10th place with a 9 game winless run, but the cups probably saved my job and eventually winning the playoffs was a great way to finish.

    At the start of the season the club was taken over (no money ) which was okay, but my contract was up for renewal and I hadn't exactly set the world on fire for the previous regime - plus they said they intended on bringing in a new manager - so I thought my time was up! Somehow I managed to land a 3 year extension, and I went into the season with high hopes.

    In a nutshell, started good, middle bad, finished good. Here's some screenies of the playoff semi-final second leg and playoff final

    Had some job offers from bottom-end League Two clubs that had been taken over by consortia lead by no less than Edwin van der Sar and Javier Zanetti, which was flattering, but I probably wouldn't have taken them regardless of this challenge. Mansfield were in a mess and I thought they'd probably be relegated anyway - which they were - and Burton Albion weren't much better. Onwards and upwards with Nuneaton!

    Good start for me as Tooting Won 2 Lost 1 ( only because the oppostion had 2 penalties to win 3-2)

    Fabian Batchelor has been my best performer so far 4 goals in 3 games.

    Signings
    Dan Beck - scored twice already... looks a good buy already
    Nathan Crabb - Upfront with Fabian scoring once and 2 assists
    Brought in 2 GKs Russel Howarth & Gareth Williams
    A solid old DM to help out my defence, Danny Rofe

    Hopefully my luck will continue

    Will keep you updated.....

    With Salisbury now 8 pts clear at the top without looking like they will slip up it looks like the best i can hope for is the playoffs. In the last 9 league games theyve won 8 and drawn 1 (the draw was against us)

    I'm about to start this challenge after having attempted it on FM 07 and almost completing it with AFC Wimbledon. Wanted to get a team that no one has one yet. Was wondering if there was any way a list could be made by all showing which teams people are currently playing with, by possibly adding your name and team you're using if you don't see that team already on the list already provided. I'll start with dafuge as namesake of the thread. Thanks in advance.

    Tooting and Mitcham - dafuge

    My friendly versus Newcastle during the international break ended in a 2-1 loss for me, which wasn't bad, 70k of ticket sales will cover the wage for about 7 weeks

    2012/2013 - Tonbridge Angels - Cardiovascular

    A season I had high-ish hopes for, I thought we could push for a top-half finished and told the board so. Their response was to lower the wage budget. After our good start with the board, the season was shaky when we started but it soon picked up and we never looked back ultimately, and promotion was sealed with a 1-0 victory over Hampton & Richmond in the BSS play-off final.

    League Finish: 3rd
    League Positions Graph


    As we neared the top following the shaky start, we never really did look like we'd lose. After an absolute thrashing in the FA Cup, we lost form and struggled to maintain our high standards but to my delight, we did pull it back and finish 3rd to make the play-offs.

    Playoff Semi Final Leg 1
    Playoff Semi Final Leg 2
    Playoff Final


    Our triumph over both Hampton & Richmond and Chelmsford, and ultimately our promotion, meant I finished Runner up in Manager of the Season.

    FA Cup - Do you really want me to talk about it? I think I'd get banned..
    FA Trophy - A loss in the first round to Merthyr ensures an awful season for us in the cups this year.

    Transfers

    Thurlbourne came in to be our resident DMC and promptly made himself that, whereas Lindie and Cole were both back-up.

    Key Player Profiles

    Tom Bryant - Tom was our star player this year and the partnership of him and Eastham were near enough unstoppable. Chipped in with 5 goals as well to round off a great season for him.

    Ashley Eastham - Alongside Bryant, we had a solid defence and Eastham also chipped in with his fair share of goals.. again, he was excellent.

    Eugene Cunningham - Eugene joined us 2 seasons ago and this was his best one since joining. He played regularly down the left, both scoring and assisting plenty of times.

    Fabio Ferreira - The Portuguese youngster was fantastic down the right, with 12 and 13 goals and assists respectively. He was excellent this year, truly amazing.

    Michal Dolinajec - Without a shadow of a doubt, the best player this year. Scored an incredible amount of goals from the attacking midfield position and evem threw in 12 assists. Unbelievable and excellent.

    Looks like they're going to do the business as I just finished my first league game of the season, beating Kings Lynn 2-0 away. Evans and Wilson both scored, with each one setting up the other's goal. Looks like a successful partnership Only problem is now Suhaj is left on the subs bench, and when he was by far my best player last season, that's really not fair.

    sometimes you have to be ruthless to do well. It may be unfair to leave him on the bench but he should get a few games when one of them gets injured

    is it true that you can only sign players who you can get scout reports for?

    im interested in signing brian mcbride but cant get a scout report for him so not sure if its breaking the rules...

    I don't see why you should have to scout McBride to sign him; he's a pretty well-known player.

    Doesn't matter, if he can't be scouted, then the rules say you must trial him first. Unfortunately that is how it works.

    Kings Lynn - Blue Square Premier - 2012/2013

    Predicted: 20th
    Finished: 13th

    This will be a really short update as the season was a very poor effort and overall a massive disapointment.

    We started well and had a solid, if inconsistent run to January, however we were in 4th plkace at the turn of the year and looked good for a challange and at the least a play off spot, but then we got decimated by injuries.

    I lost my goal scorer, Nick blackman, for 4 months and we did not see him again for the rest of the season, he had 27 goals by mid January and was pretty much the reason we were up at the top. We also lost 4 centre backs for between 2 -3 months and had to fill in with Midfielders for that time.

    Needless to say things did not go well, form disappeared and we plummeted down the league, struggling to kepp clean sheets and no real punch up front.

    The season limped to a conclusion in 13th place on the exact same points tally as the year previous.

    Another off season of rebuilding is definately in order

    It's not a bug, it happened to me too because of the geographical positions of the teams that got promoted/relegated. Don't see why it should make things unfair.

    Just made a good start to my League 2 campaign with a 3-1 win over Torquay. Nice to see Craig Rodger get on the scoresheet (he also hit the post which led to the second goal), which now means he has scored in the BSN, BSP, League 2 and League 1. A pretty impressive feat. If he could get around 30 goals like he has in the other divisions that would be even more impressive!

    Started this earlier in the week.....Manager's Profile


    Carshalton Athletic - 2010-11 - BSS


    Transfers

    Predicted to come 15th but the team put in a fantastic effort and ended up 1st - League Table scoring over 100 goals while only letting in 37 goals in the league. With an amazing 30 goals in 25 league games Simon Thomas help carry Carshalton to the league as did the promising youth talent Mark French who managed 17 league goals 30 appearances although im sure that he could have got more if he didn't get injured so often.

    Some fantastic results in the FA Cup including a 3-0 win at Milwall got us through to the 3rd round of the FA Cup where we met West Brom at home which attracted the TV cameras but unfortunatly we were thumped 7-0...Still £114k was earnt from that game

    Another amazing cup run ncluding an away win in the semi final against Luton meant we made the FA Trophy Final where we met Kettering Town. Mark French opened the scoring after thrity seconds a close range finish, then Kettering then went up the other end straight from kick off and hit the post and from then on they pinned us in to our area until Craig Mahon equalised for them in the 45th minute...he then got clean through in the 60th minute and hit the post and then that @@@@@@ finally put Kettering in the lead in the 89th minute to break Carshalton hearts... The defence just couldnt deal with Craig Mahon throughout but I'm happy that we managed to get to the final in the first place.

    Finances are looking amazing due to the Cup Runs.

    Squad

    All in all a pretty amazing season definately one of the best I've ever had on FM with a poor team, which I will look to build on for next season

    And in the next match Rodger scores a hat-trick as we came back from 2-0 down beat Leeds 4-2 (aet) in the League cup 1st round. Excellent performance from the whole team and my new signings really impressed. Unfortunately my new striker Krzysztof Chrapek picked up a twisted ankle, but otherwise an excellent result!

    Forgot to take screen shots from last seson as I was so ingrossed in forwarding so we enter our new stadium, we didn't pull up any trees though but managed to avoid relegation and finished in 17th place. Didn't do anything in the cups either but that kinda suited me really as we didn't have a big enough squad for the battle against relegation plus cup games.

    I've done most of the pre season preparing for Hendons second season in the championship and have made quite a few changes, my 4132 whilst being steady really struggles in the championship, without amazing midfielders we struggled to create many chances so have gone to a 442 which meant bringing in wingers again.

    Will take some screenshots and post them tomorrow, I hope one of my signings really excites you, he really looks EPL quality so should be massive for us this season, we fought off competition from 4 EPL clubs to sign him!

    So, after 2 days of reloading, I finally managed to score myself some sub-1000 reputation team action. Isn't that what all the kids are doing these days?

    Marine!

    Only after doing so, did I realise that the kind Glibster had uploaded a Marine Saved Game

    Ah well, at least I earned the glory myself


    Having no idea where Marine actually IS, after a quick look in google, I found out that it is a Liverpool based club. So looking forward to hammering those Liverpudlians and Evertonians in about 2030...

    Ok, this season will just be a review, no pictures unfortunately.

    Carshalton Season Review - 2014/15 - League 2 - 15th

    Basically, I told the board I would avoid relegation, and that I did. I don't think I ever fell into the relegations spots all season, and in the end I finished comfortably in 15th, 11 points off relegation.

    The FA Cup saw me crash out to Southampton, whereas the League Cup saw me get an away win at Championship Swansea before falling to Premiership West Ham. The JPT saw me go out 3-0 to Bournemouth. Overall, it was a decent enough season.

    However, the wage budget was way too high, paying £1.1 million a season. Therefore, I seriously trimmed the backup down to size, and am making some saving in wage budget, although not as much as I hoped I would

    I love the GH Academy.

    Played them in a previous season and a Bulgarian ST by the name of Radoslav Vasilev impressed with 2 goals. Noticed he had been released on a free this season, picked him up and he has scored 10 in 9.

    Ok, 2 solid nights of reloading from the 24th trying to get Truro. I've already Pm'd one person who has a Truro save on the go, but if anyone has an original Truro save before they've made any of their changes please put me out of my misery!!!

    In the meantime I've just installed FM on my desktop as well as my laptop & i'm now loading the save on both machines, double my chances.

    It's crazy seeing as Truro are/were one of the favourites for the division. I must have reloaded at least a few hundred times by now... :-(

    Glennuk - Kendal Town - Season 1 - Blue Square North - 4th - PLAYOFF WINNERS

    Well the first season went quite well.
    I bought in alot of players and it took a while for them to gel, but once they did they were clearly a fine set of players.
    I was worried as my money was constantly dipping, losing about 12k a month, even though i tried to trim down my squad and get rid of some back up players.

    Towards the end of the season Kendal Town performed very well, and always looked like the favourites for going up through the play offs.

    So the final league table is here - http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e...inallegaue.gif

    Kendal Squad - http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e...endalsquad.gif

    Next is a player i bought in during the middle of November. He really did help my defence look alot more solid, and a player who i think can do well in the BSP next season. Introducing CAMANO http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e...euk/camano.gif

    Prehaps my personal favourite is James Keatings who plays in the diamond just below my two strikers http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e...k/keatings.gif

    Luckily i signed the following player. He was not first choice at the begining of the season and when i clicked confirm signing i actually regretted it, but boy did he prove me wrong, finished top scorer for Kendal and was a solid player throughotu the season, introducing the one and only Darryn Stamp http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e...neuk/stamp.gif

    The final player i want to introduce came in on his reputation alone - Also he was a former ITFC player
    But when he did come what an impact he made, 7 assists in 17 appearances and solid performances to boot, a bit old but still had the talent George O Callaghan http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/e.../callagahn.gif


    Next Seasons Goals
    1. Improve Finances (Somehow)
    2. Keep hold of key players
    3. Bring in some more 5 star players


    PS: Any views welcome

    No, we have to be completely clear with a total ban on editors, no exceptions. If you want to use real names then you will have to 'find' another way to use the 'real names' in 'FM'.

    I hope you understand what I'm saying here.

    Wont that be a huge drain on cash reserves? It costs more to have them on full time contracts, right?

    It does cost a lot more but I've found it is worth it, full time players seem to perform a lot better than part time players.

    It won't, but we do have a strict no editors rule and you could have changed the names without using it. This challenge has very few rules but to keep the integrity of it we really do need to enforce them.

    If you feel the need to prove to everyone else that you have not changed anything else and carry on, then free to do so, but I just need to make the point that nobody should be using the editor at all.

    Don't even know how we pulled this one off

    Seems I've hit gold with a few small adjustments to the 4-5-1; they finished 5th in the Premiership last season!

    I've done a lot of work on the game now and I dont really want to start again. How could I prove that the only changes I have made is to the competition names? I named the editor file "proper competition names" or something...

    GreyedOutMan, the rules state "no editors" and I see nothing difficult with that?

    I've got no idea.

    To be honest though, I trust you that nothing dodgy has gone on, I just need to make the point that the editor is not to be used so people don't make this mistake in the future.

    Carry on as usual, it should be pretty obvious to everyone that nothing untoward has gone on. If it does appear that something is wrong then I'm sure people will point it out.

    I'd say so...I took the "no editors rule" to mean no dodgy stuff rather than no convenience stuff. I just use that file with all my saves, so that level of realism is added to the game. No editing was done specifically for this game, and no files used for any other reasons in other games were used. If anyone knows a way to prove this, please let me know

    Also, based on my first few results, accusations of cheating shouldnt be a problem 3 games, no goals, one point.

    As far as I can recall Pompey still play at Fratton and are not in a new stadium yet. There are a couple of Portsmouth lads doing this challenge, perhaps they know for certain.
