    3 days left of the Jan transfer window and still clinging onto my players, thankfully bids have only been for the players values but if they go above that then I think they'll be sold, still in the play offs as well with no real injury problems anymore, also Di Santo hasn't been missed as my Spanish backup has scored 2 in 3 games since stepping in for him.

    Stoke just offered me the job but they are near the bottom of the table, they did have a wage budget 3 times the size of mine though which sucks

    Here you go. He only ever got 2 assists and 0 goals from right midfield in 53 games, so happy with the 50k, which is a profit seeing as I trialled him, then got him on a free from CSKA Sofia.

    In my game Bolton signed him for £12k from CSKA Sofia and then sold him to Huddersfield for £800k last year, currently plays in the championship for them! Good news is the transfer window has ended and we have only sold Di Santo, but we weren't able to sign anyone else either as my wage bill is full.

    Grr, I had a star CB on loan from Spurs last season, I managed to get our club on his favoured list, I try to loan him again this season and he goes to a rival in the league :mad:

    Man, there are some mad regens around in Italy.

    For some reason they're also interested in joining us in the Championship, but alas, I'm some ways short of the £13M this particular guy's club wants...

    Well we were doing okay after about 16 games, then the strikers started missing sitters and my goalkeepers started letting in every shot on target. Morale was screwed and I couldn't turn it around. Still only 3 points from safety

    Table

    Positions

    FA Cup - 1st Rd
    FA Trophy - 1st Rd replay

    Brought in quite a few signings at the start, mostly from scotland and was inconsistant in form for the first few games before going down the league. The turning point was signing Camano to boost the defence and after a few rocky games to start with, the team improved dramaticaly around xmas and shot up the table. Going into the last game the team was level on points with both Salisbury and Weymouth but with a much worse goal difference. A last day loss to Eastbourne ultimately meant nothing as Salisbury won.
    In the playoff semi-final i won 2-0 away and then 1-0 at home in the second leg against Lewes. The playoff final was a rematch against Eastbourne and turned out to be quite comfortable.
    The FA cup ended in the first rd with a 0-2 home loss to L2 Bournemouth, a game where the difference in class was very evident. In the FA trophy i went out at home to BSP York in the 1st Rd replay, losing 1-3 after extra time after dominating both matchs and missing a crucial penalty 5 mins from normal time in the replay.

    Squad

    Transfers

    In goal Gallacher was reasonably dependable with Griffiths good backup.
    In defence Bailey and Hunter were the main fullbacks with Edgehill filling in for frequent injuries with all 3 doing well.
    In centre defence Camano was signed in Oct after being recommended by my ass man.
    He picked up 3 reds in his first 6 games but improved when i tweaked his tackling down.
    Hartshorn played well all season with his limited ability and Thomas was a decent backup at CB and RB.
    The midfield played well but will have to be improved for next season. Clarke and Morgan did well although Clarke is declining. Creswell was a cheap backup.
    On the wings Watts did well and although Wheeler and Barrowclough did ok they need to be let go and replaced.
    Up front McShea was in great form until ruled out for the season in feb with a broken foot. Kisuka and Fitzharris stepped up so he wasn't missed.
    Shroot, Millar and Rodgers were signed the day before the first leg of the playoffs and will improve the squad for next year.

    Star Player - Fitzharris started in good form before hitting a lull, but exploded with goals after McShea got injured forming a great partnership with Kisuka.

    Just finished the season and we managed to stay in 6th place, mainly thanks to our ability to restrict teams from beating us this season. We only lost 9 games all season but drew too many to have given us a real chance of automatic promotion unfortunately but I feel happy we've given ourselves a chance of promotion still. The other 3 teams in the play offs are Coventry, QPR and Southend so we shouldn't be afraid of anyone really. Infact there was only 8 points seperating 3rd to 6th so I feel we have everything to play for.

    The real positive is after selling Di Santo in Jan for 1.9m I couldn't get one of the strikers I fancied to replace him and ended up promoting Spanish youngster Gavilan from the bench and he rewarded that with 23 goals from 35 starts.

    I actually have a really big worry, one of my main stars has had to miss games four times this season with the same injury, a neck injury which has resulted in him needing to see a specialist every time, I really hope this isn't something that causes his career to end short as he looks like a top class left back and future Spanish international.

    My favourite player Craig Rodger just made his 150th appearance, in which he scored his 100th goal in just his 4th season of football. A great landmark for a fantastic player. He has been one of few bright sparks this season with a return of 15 goals in 13 appearances. We struggled for form when he suffered the first injury of his career as we sit 16th in League 1 after 15 games. But with our form improving and a game in hand i'm hopeful we will do our usual late push for the playoffs.

    G. Keenan's FC United- 2010/2011 Season Review- Blue Square North

    Well, first season in the books and it went better than expected, I didn't quite manage promotion but a fine run of form down the stretch run of the season allowed me to squeak into the 5th play-off position. I drew Worcester in the playoff semi final and won the first leg 1-0 (home leg), but then crashed out with a 2-0 defeat in the 2nd leg. In the FA Trophy I lost in the 2nd round and the FA Cup I lost in the 2nd qual. round.

    Playoff semi final 2nd leg - a somewhat less interesting match than the 1st leg but we got the job done and are through to the playoff final

    Edit: Got carshalton in the final, i lost away to them 2-1 and drew 0-0 to them at home altho wen i played them a 2nd time i was alredy guaranteed the playoffs so i put out a weakened side

    Farnborough Town F.C. BSS 2010/11

    Good start to the season but fiddled with my 5-4-1 mid season and dropped out of top five. Signed "Super" Kyle Wilson on a free at start of season but disappointed with his 17games and only 4 goals. I have a great regen DC who i may struggle to keep hold of, he was BSS player of the season and a fairly good regen striker who was my top goalscorer. Bought in about 20 players over the season, all free, due to my board giving me a transfer budget of £0, but my wage budget was quite high,so i was always under wage budget. Transfer listed several players but nobody was interested so they can all go when contracts expire.
    It went down to the wire at the business end of the season and I mahaged to claim 5th spot for a playoff place. Beat Eastbourne over the two legs for a final place and beat Salisbury in the Final 2-0 to gain promotion to BSP at the first attempt.
    Did nothing much in the cups which at this stage im not too bothered about.
    Annoyed that having gained promotion I still have a transfer budget of £0, but on the up side the board nave increased my wage budget by about a £1000, so it looks like im after better free transfers.

    Also the board will not allow any more than my 2 coaches which sucks.

    Aims for next season are to stay clear of relegation, get rid of the deadwood and look to perhaps make a push for promotion in 2012/13

    Thumbs up Re: dafuge's FM10 challenge

    Hey guys,

    I've been thinking about alternatives to the website, which most likely will not be relaunched for FM10. I think I have something that will work, but of course its design isn't as elegant as that of the website. It's currently a two-step process:

    1) I'm using Google Forms to create a survey, which will allow us to update the records of our challenge. Everything gets stored into raw data.
    2) I will export the raw data into Excel, and make use of Macros to analyse the raw data and produce some form of stats and table of achievements that is readable. I can then import this analysed data online so that it can be viewed online!

    I've got (1) done! http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewf...UVdBcTJkQ2c6MA

    I will need more time to think about how (2) should be done. Right now, I guess I will need your help! Help me update your career progress using the above link. Once it has been populated with data, I will have something I can work and test with, and hopefully that will mean good news for everyone! =)

    Important things to note:
    - This system is very open to abuse. For example, anyone can upload an update in someone else's name, or upload rubbish data (e.g. a BSP team winning Champions League). I don't think there's anyway to get around this without making things too complicated.
    - This post is already getting too long for my liking. I'll wait for everyone's feedback first.
    - Please feedback! And if there are suggestions do post it here! Or any errors spotted etc
    - I'm a closet dafugeschallenge fan, who follows the thread but doesn't post updates because.. I don't particularly enjoy the process of posting updates. This year perhaps? We'll see.

    2013/14 - Tonbridge Angels - Blue Square Premier

    I thought this season might be a tricky one but I was pleasantly surprised. If someone had said to me "I'll give you 9th place and 72 points" at the beginning of the season, I would've gladly taken it with both hands. But with the performance throughout the season, I'm very disappointed to finish 9th.

    Media Prediction: 24th
    League Finish: 9th
    League Graph


    The league graph pretty much sums up what I was saying previously. As good as we were, we couldn't keep up and eventually fell away into the top half.

    FA Cup

    The motivation of a home tie against Arsenal appeared for 10 minutes here before we stumbled away clutching a loss. Hereford were 2-0 down but came back to it and smashed us 4-2 which is a massive disappointment.

    FA Trophy

    Stevenage ended our dreams after a decent run. Again, we had taken the league through Ferreira but we couldn't hold it and after beating them previously in the BSP just days earlier, we couldn't hold on.

    Transfers

    I felt a massive overhaul was needed and we had to strengthen. If I do say so myself, this year's dealing were good. Most of the players made the first team. Oh, and just to show how difficult finding talent was, here is how many players I trialled this season.

    Key Player Profiles

    Gareth Parker - Gareth was the new rock at the back and solid all season. As well as his decent penalty-taking abilities, he has a knack for being in the right place at the right time and that can only be a good thing.

    Michal Dolinajec - Once again, another great season. This year's captain grabbed 16 goals and layed on another 15 to round up a great year.

    Ashley Eastham - Another excellent, solid season at the back for Ashley. Alongside Parker, they were great together and totally unbeatable in the air.

    Radoslav Vasilev - The Bulgarian had been released by the Glenn Hoddle Academy and I promptly snapped him up after he impressed in a friendly. He proceeded to tear up the BSP but sadly he had about three injuries which kept him out for a month at a time. Despite this, he still ended with 25 goals in 31 appearances. A marvellous contribution from the Bulgarian youngster.

    I will need more time to think about how (2) should be done. Right now, I guess I will need your help! Help me update your career progress using the above link. Once it has been populated with data, I will have something I can work and test with, and hopefully that will mean good news for everyone! =)

    I didn't win the final, but I got a crowd of 1229 at Darlington Arena, which weirdly was less than either of the semi-final legs.

    Thenamesfang, I tried the form thing, although I'm not sure if it worked. It looks cool, but one thing that confused me is the league position page; I haven't finished my season yet, so I just put last year's results. Is that right?

    Can I present my new midfielder for my first season in the BSP, ex-Liverpool midfielder Fancisco Duran
    If I can keep him fit for most of the season then he should do me well and I'll see if I can play him as a deep lying playmaker.

    Oi! How come I'm not in the big list thing there! I've got Hednesford you know!

    All right, after a lot of looking around in the free transfer section this is my Opening Day starting lineup.

    Opening Day

    A lot of youngsters and I'm relying on 'Grandpa' Gavin Ward to have a good season in the sticks. Ben Kudjodi looks like he might be a keeper though.

    Looks like the crazy inconsistency is continuing this season.

    We were in the relegation zone with just six points after 12 games. We then beat fellow strugglers Darlington 5-1 then follow it up with a comeback from a goal down to beat the league leaders 4-2.

    Crazy stuff.

    20 games 17 goals 9 assists.

    I now have the choice of Jordy Brouwer who came on for Zoltan and scored or with last years star McShea.

    Signed this guy after having him on trial. With a value of 350k I'm more than happy with the deal, he will most likely be rotated between starting MC and cover for DR.

    Sutton Utd BSS 2010/11

    Competitions:

    Fa Cup: lost in 1st round to bristol rovers 2-1
    Fa Trophy: lost in 3rd round to grays 1-0
    League: 2nd place beta carshalton in playoff final 2-0

    League,
    Transfers, Squad

    We started off pretty slow and after 10 games we sat midtable, this may have been down to the amount of signings there had been in the summer because my team started to gel and that showed especially in the 2nd half of the season as we maintained a 23 match unbeaten run (26 if you include the playoffs). This was a pretty incredible achievement considering a had 3 of my best 4 strikers injured for the rest of the season (fitchett, fitzharris and gargan) (although fitchett came back in time for playoffs). Despite this run we gave ourselves to much to do after a poor start so in the end salisbury ran away with the league but we came in a comfortable 2nd.

    Playoff semi final 1, Playoff Semi Final 2

    The work was done in the 1st half of the 1st leg and we just relaxed and eased to victory after that

    Playoff Final

    We were the better team throughout the final and finally got the deserved goals late in the 2nd half of extra time.

    Up the U's

    My best player was ruychev he was consistent but not necessarily eye catching, like michael essien for chelsea, he spent most of the season as a defensive midfielder and occasionly stepped up to central midfield if need be.

    Cups:

    Fa cup was alrite we beat the lower league opposition without too much fuss but not exactly spectacularly. We eventually went out to a far superior bristol rovers side who in all honesty should have beaten us by a bigger margin

    Fa trophy was much better we pulled off some good results but again 1st sign of higher leayge opposition and we crumbled, doesnt give me a whole lot of confidence going into the bsp

    Finances - the 1 bad aspect of my debut season was the amount of money we lost, altho this seems to be a common theme so im not too worried.

    So, of course, I want to pick my Captain and rock, Michael Jackson (who I linked earlier in the thread).

    Problem is, I also have a Right Back called Michael Jackson, with no way to tell between to two!


    Try using a nickname. Just nickname one of them Michal Jackson or something

    It really depends on the opponent. I almost always use 4-4-2 and then either attacking, control or standard.

    Drewski. Boston United. 2011/2012

    After establishing ourselves last season and narrowly missing out on a play-off place, I thought that with a few signings here and there and we would be able to at least get into the play-off positions, but we managed to do one better, we romped to the title, from the first whistle we were in 1st place, this was easily my easiest season in FM; as you can tell from the graph we were in pole position from the first game, and after that we never looked back and we secured the title with four games to go.

    Squad - Not bad, solid defence, creative midfield, and our front two managed to score over 40 goals between them, the majority of the players were decent in this division, but I feel that I will have to replace most of them during the summer to make room for some quality, Brook was my main goalie, a £1k summer signing from Wales, he was much better than my other goalie but I think that the BSP may be too much of a step up for him so I will try and get a replacement next season, but that did not stop him from getting the majority of the plaudits this season though; Farrell, wow, for a free transfer he definitely gets the award for signing of the season from me, a fantastic average and a huge 11 man of the match awards, if we are to survive next season we will need to get someone to partner him in terms of quality; Jamie Guy, I have been after this player for quite a while before I got him, he may not have reached the 20 goal mark this season but overall I was very pleased with how well he played with Wilson, with the step up to the BSP next season I think I will have to mainly use him as a impact player and try and get two more ST's in to replace him; Super Kyle Wilson, fantastic season from everyone's favourite player, I had to break the wage structure to get him here last season and I'm glad I did, even if he wasn't in the goals he still made a presence amongst the oppo. It's just a shame that I will have to let him go next season, with the increase in wages next season due to promotion I cannot afford to pay him £1k a week, I could get two strikers in for half that amount.

    Transfers - half decent players came in, carp players went out.

    Finances - well lets put it this way, hopefully we'll get more revenue next season to put us into the black, if that doesn't work, then I'll sell a few players.

    Aims for next season:

    Survive.
    Buy some quality.
    Make some money.

    Very very standard. I don't think I've changed any of those yet. The only one I tinker with is counter attack.

    Just started mine and i can't even get an assistant manager! They want £600-750 a week and board will only give me £350 a week :/

    Hoping for a nice cup run for some money.

    Got off to a terrible start, lost my first game 1-0 and the goal was offside. Lost second game 2-1 with a last minute goal that was also offside!

    Both games were away from home so not too bothered but gonna need to turn my home ground into a fortess, heh.

    Loving it!

    Started my second season very well, and after 6 games i am 3rd in the league. Not bad, considering i am favourites for relegation!

    Come on Kendal Town.

    Got some cracking players in too.

    Will let you all know when the season is done.

    At this rate it could well be tomorrow!

    Alrighties, I'm in as FC United manager. (Had to, thanks for the save btw!)

    http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/8118/fcunited.jpg

    I'm actually totally new to LLM. I've had one or two 6 month saves where I got ****ed off before, but hopefully this time, it should be fun! The first obvious problem is that I haven't got a clue as to which player is actually good and who is ****.

    Also, I've never managed wage budgets to this extent, so I've got no idea if 300p/w assman at a BSN club is a good idea or not. Will be a long hard walk to the top! It'll be fun though

    Mid-season update

    Just lost my first game in 16 games (my first home defeat of the season) against Stevenage in the FA Trophy 3rd round. We're going well in the league, 2nd after 26 games, and did alright in the FA Cup, losing to a 1st round replay away to Yeovil. As expected, Super Kyle and Gareth Evans have struck up an excellent partnership, scoring 35 goals between them in around 30 games, and although Pavol Suhaj has been in decent form (8 in 17), he finds himself regularly on the bench.

    Looks like the signing of Nardiello was a mistake, he's only been at the club for a month - a week after signing he picked up a thigh strain that ruled him out for 3 weeks, now a month later he's just pulled his hamstring and will be out for 5 weeks

    Searched through the forums and the online manual without finding an answer to this. So I'm gonna ask here

    Sometimes the game ask if you want to skip the confirmation step when doing something like free transferring players or offering trial to a player. It's a great addition to FM10 but I wonder if it is possible to change this back again? I can't really find it anywhere.

    About to play the most important game of the season between me (2nd) and Barrow (1st). A win for Barrow would extend their lead to 7 points, and would effectively resort me to the play-offs for promotion, with 12 games to go. A win for me would narrow the gap to just 1 point though. I've got home advantage, so hopefully can get a result.

    Damn, lost 2-0. One of their goals was offside, and we had one wrongfully ruled out as well And I get warned by the FA for saying I thought it should have stood.

    Guiseley season 1 (09/10)- media prediction 20th- position 8th

    So we dived into the deep end, i didn't know how easy/difficult this type of challenge is i set the board to target to avoid relegation, we met this aim quite easily in the end, we improved over the season positioned low mid table at christmas but improvements led to the final finish of 8th and a change to a more attacking tactic.

    League Table

    A pleasing finish although i was slightly disappointed with the amount of draws i will look for a better amc for the in the hole position to hopefully be a match winner next season.

    I would have hoped to lasted longer in both the Fa cup and the Fa Trophy. Unfortunately this didn't happen mainly to form/red cards/and quality. Hopefully next season i will make the FA cup proper and do well in the trophy too.

    Transfers Lots of free players signed as well as many outgoing i saved most of budget for wage room although we still made a considerable loss.

    Here is the squad:

    Squad 1
    Squad 2
    Squad 3

    As you can see mason and mclean made a big difference when they joined and my 3 highest value players are u21.
    The assistant reports are good although this is with the avoid relegation target.

    Key Players:

    Mason As you see he does well despite 1 finishing :S.

    Briggs Versatile player both at cm or rb

    Lee My 2.5k signing did quite well as should be useful next season

    Mclean Done very well since him joining me in january- hoping he can lead me to promotion next season

    Awards/stats:

    Manager of the month

    Player of the month

    Player stats

    Team Stats

    Finances:

    Finances not too good but i feel with some good cup runs and sales we will be alright.

    Next Season: I hope to achieve promotion and make profit, a few quality signings will be required for this so i hope the board is generous

    Thanks for reading- apologies if the links are broken/done in the wrong way.

    Ok, so I should just leave everything as default and I should do alright?

    When star-striker Gareth Evans got injured for 2 months, it felt like our season was going from bad to worse, as consecutive defeats to Barrow and Droylsden effectively prevented us from grabbing automatic promotion.

    Immediately I searched the lands for a decent striker to fill Evans' shoes (at least for the time being), and partner Super Kyle up-front. I came across a 17 year old sitting in Leyton Orient's reserve team called Ron Franks, and quickly put in a 3-month loan bid. The next day, he signed, ready for our tricky away encounter to Altrincham. I wasn't expecting much, but I put him up front with Wilson, and started the match.

    What followed must go down as one of the greatest debuts ever, especially for a 17-year old.

    Alt-F9 is even better. Saves a screenshot for you in your FM directory under a folder called 'Screenshots'.

    Update

    Billericay Town

    2013-14

    Was very pleased with first season in BSP, managed top half of table most of the season and whilst some of my players were really not up to scratch we got enough results to give a good showing to the season, given I was odds on for relegation. Failed to get to play-offs but very happy with results.

    League Table
    Position shows consistancy.

    2014-15

    I lost my Assman as he wanted to manage Tooting (like some here) and struggled to find a replacement which may have been a good thing in some ways, couldn't rely on suggestions as much. Wow, getting some new players in pre-season and more tactical tweaks made a huge difference, we were awesome in the league although cup matches weren't so good.
    Followed Aldershot for most of the season who I never thought we'd catch but we did and won the league, but not by much, was down to the last match!

    League Table
    Position

    Poor Aldershot I feel sorry for them, they have been near top consistently but not go promotion, oh well

    Onwards and upwards to what will be a tough season in L2. My replacement Assman was pants and will be sacked (well not renewed) and other staffers may need updating to cope. I'm confident in probably half my first team but will be hitting the transfer market (well freebies) big time.

    As I got a crash dump and my save wouldn't load, this was because I got the crash dump when I was saving the game to go to bed last night :mad:

    I have decided to start a new one with Merthyr

    Just trialled this guy, who looks great, my AM says he's league 2 quality. He's only asking £250 a week also.

    Season review coming shortly.
