    Re: Friendlies, it's best to play them away? Saw a massive fall in my finances after sending my U18s to play some friendlies abroad and I'm pretty sure that was why. Or I missed some other major expenditure by me. Was around december if you check my finances screenie.

    I have 15 scouts.

    I've been upgrading the youth facilities ASAP and signed a lot of youth coaches with really high Working With Youngsters attributes. Not sure if the latter actually makes a difference in terms of who comes through the system, but their names do seem to appear on most youngsters' Favoured Personnel lists. I should probably also mention that only a few are products of my own academy, Wilson and Conrad were bought and so was Lassina Loué.

    Hi everyone this is my first post on the forum. I have been reading lots of things on the forum and i ordered the game which should arrive in a few days now. I really want to start a llm game.

    Using the demo i noticed you can organise friendly with well known teams and that kind of events could bring some money. This demo game was played in BSN league with solihull moors and i noticed i was losing money overtime even if i respected wages. So in the game you play you cant use that kind of friendly to make money?

    I also noticed there is a file that could bring you to start at lower level in english league up to lvl 10. What do you thing about that?


    Thanks in advance for help on those questions

    Merthyr Tydfill League 2 2013/14

    Table

    Positions

    FA Cup - 1st Rd
    League - 1st Rd
    JPT -1st Rd

    I started badly taking 4 games to score a goal so changed from direct passing to mixed.
    After this i moved up the table hitting a 10 match winless streak with 7 draws in Jan when i was eying up the playoff spots. I won a few games after this before enduring another winless streak in mar and apr when i lost 7 in 9 games. The main problem in this season seemed to be scoring, both the strikers and midfielders struggled, conversely the defence was much better until the last few months when the majority of goals were scored.
    In the cups i didn't win a match, in the League Cup i lost to Championship Reading on penalties after my best penalty taker was sent of in ET. I lost to L2 Cheltenham on penalties in the JPT and was completely outclassed 1-3 at home to L2 Bradford.
    Due to my lack of cup progress my finances are still desperate with me losing money every month, its only down to the board putting in money that it only dropped to -300K.

    Squad

    Transfers

    Due to the financial situation i was nearly at my wage limit of 8.5K when i gained promotion, i was therefore unable to bring any decent players in as there wage demands were too high.
    Gallacher started the season in goal with Gibson finishing as first choice even though he was rated much worse by my coaches.
    Youga was signed as my main leftback as lovatt was useless.
    At right back Fornasier, Rodgers and Hunter all played with no sucess.
    In the centre Craig was the mainstay with the others all showing inconsistant form alongside him.
    In central midfield Prutton was still very important due to his tackling ability but was increasingly injured, Freeman was brought in to cover even though not a natural midfielder. Eikrem started well before faltering and was replaced be Noone who did very well.
    On the left it was a similar story with Knott starting well but fading with Hussain taking over. On the right McDonald did well when not injured, several players filled in for him when he didn't play.
    Up front Kisuka stepped up well but McShea struggled to score and Fitzharris was very disappointing.

    Star Player - Compared to the rest of the defence he stood out in spite of his worse attributes

    Those sort of friendlies are allowed, but discouraged as they kind of go against the spirit of this challenge.

    I can't find it now, but I'm pretty sure there's a separate challenge that includes those new English leagues.

    Bradford historic season! 2011/2012

    After my first season in charge of Braford PA, where i didn't get promotion, this year the only thing that countet was promotion. It started out pretty bad and i lost some stupid games. Anyway, around new year i found my self between the top 7, and from there on everything just "clicked". I pretty much won everything in the league but i wasn't able to catch Tamworth who won by six point. So i finished second and had to face Fleetwood in the semi final. I won that game and in the final it was all or nothing against Worcester. I was a bit lucky and won 6-5 after penalties, but i didn't care, i had won promotion.!

    League Table

    Again this season i didn't really care much about the cup tournaments, and again i was knocked out real quick. Next season i will give it more focus, and hope to make som money that way, since my finances aren't the best out there

    Before the season i was pretty much hoping to sign a whole new team, but that didn't turn out so good. Since im from Denmark, i offered a lot of danish Freebish a Trial, and signed the best of them including my new first GK Lars Baun. At the other end of the pitch i signed Richard Logan, who turned out to be a really good deal. He scored a lot of important goal through the season.

    Transfers

    As you can see i signed a lot of players again, and i must say that Logan, Baun, Jared and Santonocito did a really good job, and they will def. stay in the club next season as well

    Goals for next season:
    I know its gonna be very hard to play in another league with better teams, but i must admit that i think i have learned how to play in these small leagues, so my goal will without a doubt be top 10, and i must admit that i think i have the team for promotion again with some luck.
    In the cups i will be looking to get some good and hard matches vs. some good teams, so i can try myself and my players at that level.

    Had a massive stroke of luck in my second season in the BSN last night.

    Final game of the season, i'm sitting 6th, one place outside the playoff. AFC Telford and Fleetwood 3 points ahead. I'm at home to Nuneaton who are about 18th, Fleetwood at home to Solihul who are in the playoffs and fighting for automatic promotion, AFC Telford at home to another side who's season is done. I have a goal difference 5 better than Telford but 2 worse than Fleetwood.

    Anyway, Half time i'm 0-0, AFC are winning and Fleetwood 1-0 down, so i'm still not in. I score in the 85 minute to secure a 1-0 win. I think i've not done enough. But when I look at the results. Fleetwood lost 3-1 conceeding the 3rd in the 87th minute, to reverse the goal difference (i was well behind on goals scored) and put me in the playoffs in 5th, with Telford in 4th and Fleetwood missing out in 6th.

    G. Keenan's FC United- 2027/2028 Season Review- Premier League

    Season review: We had a slow start but by the 15th game of the season we hit the top spot and never looked back. At one point we had a 15 point lead but I started playing the youngsters and that cut the lead to 5 points. Our Champions League campaign was a little disappointing, better luck next year.

    Cup review:
    FA Cup- 6th round loss to Blackburn.
    League Cup- Quarter final loss to Man City.
    Champions League- First knockout round exit to Real Madrid.

    Drewski. Boston United. 2016/2017. League 1

    After finishing just outside of the play-offs last season I made it my aim to try and do one better and actually get into the play-offs this time around, but we had other ideas, and finished the season as Champions, for the majority of the season we were in and around the top 4 and by the last 14 games or so we went up another gear and let the chasing pack, confirming promotion with 5 games to spare and the title 1 games later.

    Squad - It was pleasing to see my front two score more than 50 goals between them this season, and that we actually had a midfielder contributing with another 12, out keeper, who was on loan from Aston Villa took over from Stech, who was very poor; GK. Armstrong - wow, his presence in goal made a huge difference to the way my defense player, before him we were crap, when he arrived wee played with more authority I would loved to have had him again this season but he has moved to Celtic for £900k; McLaughlin - another superb season from the DL, he was a rock in defense and his set pieces were deadly, it's just a shame that I think that The Championship will be too tough for him, but I'll still use him as a squad player; Turnbull - finally! It's about time I managed to get a midfielder who could contribute a few goals and assists, and that's what he did, I will be looking to him for more of the same next season; O'Brien - my main striker, he had a bit of a dry spell right at the start of the season but the more games he played he started to find his rhythm and finished with 26 league goals, I will look to him again next season; Wallace - was used as a sub for the first half of the season, but once my loan striker Romario's form dipped I brought Wallace back into the fray and he did not disappoint.

    Transfers

    Finances

    Aims for next season:

    Stay up, for the love of god, I don't care how, but I hope we stay up.

    Farnborough BSP 2011/12

    League Table

    Had a surprising season in BSP, I did not expect promotion in my first season, I could not catch Luton and they won the title easily.

    Although my defence looks good on paper they tend to leak stupid goals throughout the season.


    Thank God for Super Kyle

    Kyle Wilson

    I did not do well in any of the Cups and did not expect to, as I had started well in the league and all efforts were to make the playoffs.

    So I have made L2 and looking forward to a healthy transfer budget after 2 seasons of no budget at all and then I get 14K Transfer budget despite being within my wage budget for 2 seasons and recieving 90K in parachute payments!!!

    What am I supposed to get with that?

    It looks like a struggle in L2 this season and hope I can avoid relegation.

    Before I start my story I just want to say well done to the ones already doing this, after being stuck for a choice of challenge reading some of the suberb posts in this thread gave me some motivation to actually see a game through for more than a season without getting bored.

    I'll update my story a bit more reguarly in the future so sorry for the longer post this time, but as nothing much happened in season one (which I decided was mainly to consolodate) I thought i'd combine the second season too.


    Season 2010/2011



    After spending ages trying to get FC United I eventually decided to give in and go for Cambridge.

    After reading how many people on here have struggled a bit financially I decided to make money the priority from the off and arranged 5 pre season league tournaments with the biggest clubs possible. Three of the tournaments ended up being shown on TV too which boosted my finances dramatically

    I scouted Scotland (mostly Rangers and Celtic like suggested earlier on here) and had a pretty good shortlist drawn up with two definate signings coming in, but no sooner had I reached July then a board takeover stopped me from signing anybody, the transfer embargo carried on right through July leaving me with almost the entire starting squad which to me wasn't good enough, but my hands were tied so I just had to carry on and try and get as many points on the board as possible. Eventually the consortium decided not to go ahead with the deal and I could complete my transfers although a lot of the players listed weren't the initial targets I had before the embargo, so after a bad start where we didn't win in the first 10 games of the season and then had another stutter around Christmas I was quite happy with our eventual finish of 13th place.

    Season 2011/2012



    I'd already made my mind up early in season 1 that anybody whose contract was up would be allowed to leave at the end of the season which would free wages up to get some decent reserve players which I had been lacking last season. Again I raided the Scottish league for the best released players with my main goals being to get a laft winger who could actually create something and I wasn't disappointed with who popped up Luca Santonocito had been released by Dundee Utd and was a lot more effective on that side of the pitch than the three I'd tried the season before. Other notable additions were Tyrone Thomas and Gordon Dunbar who were the only other players from the summers transfer dealings who forced thier way in to my starting 11.

    What really surprised me this season was the sudden rise of two players who i'd brought in last season who massively underachieved.

    Michael D'Agostino brought in from Hereford the previous season was disappionting on the right flank, with only 4 goals and 7 assists from 40 games, so I decided to up his attacking and creative freedom a few notches and give him until January before deciding whether to keep him and it was a decision I didn't regret as he tore the league apart with 3 goals and 28 assists in 38 games which benefited last seasons other major flop Jordan Elverson who was another brought in from Dundee Utd. In the previous season he managed 10 goals and 3 assists from 31 games, but coinciding with D'Agostino's emergance and Santonocito's form on the left he became the leagues top scorer with a further 4 goals in the cups from 3 games.

    Again it was another slow start to the season for me, not winning in the first 6 games and lying 14 points off fifth place in mid November. I decided to change from a 4-4-2 counter, to 4-4-2 attack and it payed off straight away as I went on a 2 month winning streak and finished the season in to secure a playoff place.

    The playoff games themselves seen me play the semi final against Bylth where I salvaged a 3-3 draw at home in the first leg after being 3-0 down at half time and then going to Blyth and holding out for a 1-0 win.

    The final itself was a totally different affair where I played Tamworth. Jordan Elverson gave me the lead midway through the first half, picking the ball out wide on the right and cut inside evading a few challenges and finishing superbly at the near post. Santonocito put me 2-0 ahead just after half time, again with Elverson at the heart of it. Then in the final 10 minutes came the goal of the game and one that assured me of promotion. From a Tamworth corner the ball came out to Elverson just inside our half and he just ran through every challenge before unleashing a shot in to the top corner from 25 yards.

    Season 5 - SnakeXe's Merthyr Tydfil

    Coca-Cola League One - 4th, Play-Off Semi-Finalists (Table)
    Johnstone's Paint Trophy - Southern Quarter-Final (lost v Swindon)
    FA Cup - 1st Round (lost v Rotherham)
    League Cup - 1st Round (lost v Oxford)

    Transfers

    In a word, disappointing. Should have got promoted automatically, we were catching a free-falling Bolton easily, and with 3 games left we were 1 point from overtaking them. We promptly lost all 3 of our remaining games.

    No matter, I thought, I'll gee them up for the play-offs. And I did. For the first leg against Norwich, we were great, stopped them playing and won it 1-0 with a header from my academy-produced centre back Simon Davies. The second leg, we didn't get a shot on target and shipped 3 goals. I honestly despair.

    Despite the better placing in the league, I actually think we regressed this season. We lost a lot more games, collected fewer points, and generally looked far less convincing. I think this is in part due to the demise of our star striker and record goalscorer, Curtis Stevens, to whom age has not been kind. However, the players who usurped him were all much worse than they should have been, and I think I'll be changing the squad around quite significantly this close season.

    That said, there's clearly not much between us and automatic promotion, so that's got to be the aim for next year. Here's hoping for a good summer!

    Got a trip to White Hart Lane and Tottenham in the FA Cup 3rd. Once again, Premierleague opposition, and they have a 45k all seater in WHL, so decent money there

    The adventures of Black Mama - Canvey Island - BSS - 10/11

    Due to an unexpected system failure 6 weeks of game time and 9 matches has been lost for good

    I was doing very bad and sitting 19th after 23 games - I don't want to risk replaying the matches and doing much better the second time. It just wouldn't feel right.

    Canvey Island is history for me - and the save interval just got reduced to 1 week.

    I'll holiday onwards to the next season and see what teams get promoted - maybe Margate

    (Bonus info: The assistant manager managed to take Canvey Island to a respectable 14th - using my tactics of course)

    Having a very bad season this time round reminds me very much of the season I lost my job in my first go at this year's challenge with Nuneaton... hopefully it doesn't go that way this time.

    On the plus side, the league is quite tight so if we get it together we'll be back up the sharp end in no time

    Glenn Crane - Kendal Town - Season 3 - BSP - 5th - Lost in Playoffs

    An up and down season but a battle to the end either way.
    We had some frustrating times and went through a frustrating patch of draws which really tested my patience.
    Not a huge update AGAIN as i am very tired but will show you the basic screenshots!

    league
    Squad
    Transfers

    As you can see my squad isn't fully there as i have sold a few and put some in reserves and this update was late in my haste to sign new talent. And i have

    And then the fans player of the season

    As you can see from the two playoff games it was quite close but my incosistency and lack of cutting edge up front lost me the chance to get promoted.

    Playoff 1
    Playoff 2

    Overall i am quite dissapointed we had the players to go up but never reached our potential, and our strike force just didn't produce the goods on a regular basis.

    Goals for next season
    1. Get consistency
    2. Get that CUTTING Edge up front
    3. Improve Squad - I already have with my biggest name probs Paynter
    4. Promotion (I can't stand another season in BSP)

    Carshalton - 2012/13 BSP

    Well this season went well, I won the league as I wanted to, rising to the top of the table very early and staying pretty much at the top all season. I also won the FA Trophy which I was supposedly rank outsider to win. I didn't do too well in the FA Cup only reaching the 1st round.

    League Table

    FA Trophy
    FA Cup

    I again made quite a lot of transfers and once again am surprised that the team was able to gel.

    Transfers

    My finances are brilliant mainly due to the playoff final at Wembley last season but helped out by the FA Trophy run this season.

    Goals

    My goal for next season is to at least survive in L2. I will try to bring in some quality players for the league and hopefully will be able to get a mid table finish.

    G. Keenan's FC United- 2028/2029 Season Review- Premier League

    Season review: The Champions League was the one and only goal in my sights this season and as a result I was expecting to miss out a third straight league title, but I actually managed to wrap that up with two games to spare.

    Cup Review
    Champions League Group Stage
    1st Knockout Round
    Quarter Final
    Semi Final
    Final
    So that's it, Champions League won, challenge complete. There were some very eventful and high scoring games on the way but the final was a pretty comfortable 3-0 win.

    The team in question:
    GK: Ian Taylor

    DR: Miguel Pereira

    I have a question for dafuge.
    I'm currently under a transfer embargo because of takeover talks that so far have taken 3 game months and obviously can't sign any players.
    But it seems that I can offer triallists contracts, this is a known bug that I've seen in the bugs forum.

    Is it acceptable to sign a couple of triallist to reinforce my depleted squad?
    If not then I'll have to go back to a previous save as I trialled and signed Victor Palsson as I've only got 3 central midfielders (and a winger who can play there in an emergency)

    If you trialled the players first you can sign them at any time.

    I know that, but I'm under a transfer embargo due to takeover talks and that means that I can't sign players because the board blocks the deals. I managed to sign the triallist because of a bug in the game.

    The problem is that there is another bug that could mean that the takeover talks can take a year or more and all that time I'll be under the embargo.

    Can I take advantage of the bug that lets me sign a few triallists to compensate for the fact that I might be under a transfer embargo for quite some time?
    My squad is pretty thin with only 20 professionals, including 4 keepers. Well it's 21 now with Palsson.

    Season Summary


    In our first season in the Blue Square Premier, I expected a hard and fierce relegation battle. This was exactly what I got. Despite signing a trio of French players: Laurent Robert, Christian Nade and Gilles Sunu, we still struggled. Laurent Robert was easily the best of the 3, although his fitness levels aren't that great, as you would expect of someone at his age. Nade was a bit of a disappointment, and didn't score as many goals as I had expected. Sunu was even more of a let down, for an ex-Arsenal youngster he was really woeful, I'd expected him to be an absolute beast in this division.

    The season as a whole was an acceptable one, just surviving was enough to keep the board happy. Although we're now 350K in debt, which despite the board's constant efforts to improve the situation, is only getting worse. I think hoping for a tycoon from Russia or the middle-east is a bit optimistic, so we'll have to cope for now. I think only an FA Cup run or promotion will be able to get us out of the red next season, both of those are very unlikely.

    Anyone knows what happens if I get sacked? Do I take over another newly club with the same manager, or do I start with a completely new manager?

    I say this not because I've been sacked. But because I think I will, soon enough. I'm on a ten-game winless streak and three points to show for it. From the past 20 games I've only won 3 games and 6 draws. 12 more games to go in the BSN and I'm just 5 points clear of regulation!

    I think most people start a new save game when they are sacked.

    That's what I did. Sacked from Nuneaton in my 4th season for being in the BSP relegation zone; after 4 seasons with Merthyr I was established in League One - just shows how these things can go!

    You could go on holiday until 24th June and save the game. Then reload it and go on holiday for a single day and see if you're lucky enough to have a club that meets the requirement for the challenge, i.e. has never been in the BSS or BSN during the period of your game.
    If you're lucky you might have a lower rep team pop up, one that would never get into the playable leagues normally.

    Yeah I know this. I'm asking if I am supposed to continue with the loser of the manager, or do I have to add a new manager, i.e. restarting.

    I guess most people will restart, and I might do just that. But if a newly promoted team has no manager, I say why not show them how much I really suck

    After waiting what seems like an eternity for Rugby to get promoted I have decided to take the plunge with Nuneaton.

    I managed to get in 12 new signings mostly by shopping north of the border and linking with Henden to get access to their knowledge of Bulgaria – they are the usual suspects so I won’t list them again. An interesting point is that my strikeforce is ex-celtic and ex-rangers – wonder how well they will gel(?). I know my mass clear out seems a bit of a churlish way to repay the squad that won promotion, but that’s life in the Blue Square for you.

    I will be playing a back four, a DM, 3 MC and 2 ST in an attempt to keep the goals conceded down and hope to nick one on the break.

    I have never managed lower than L1 and I’ll let you know how it goes.

    BTW anyone know of a good DM? How hard would it be at this level to retrain a DC in the DM role?

    I went with a similar tactic in my first season and ended up with the second best defense in the league, unfortunately i couldn't score to save my life and finished 14th.

    1 game left of the season in League 2, and I am 1 point off the playoffs. Need to beat Carlisle and hope other results go my way to enter the playoffs.

    I play the same formation and have used Valentin Milenov in the dm position for my whole career at sutton utd. He's alright at bss/bsn level but i reccommend getting a better one for the bsp

    Kings Lynn - BSN 2010/11

    Following the devestation of a Crash Dump, which was quickly accompanied by a corrupted save, it was my unfortunate experience to be transported 7 seasons back in time. The term "Groundhog Day" was absolutly the case as i returned to Day 1 of the challenge to get Kings Lynn to the dizzy heights of Premier League and Champions League Glory.

    However, someone once said that hind sight is a wonderful thing, and they were certainly not wrong.

    Following some fairly hectic wheeling and dealing in the transfer market a strong squad was quickly assembled, i am sure i could get done for insider trading or something but from experience i just knew that these guys would be up to the job.

    They didnt disappoint and although we did not fair to well in the cups the league was won and we advanced to try our hand at the BSP, i feel this will require a little more strengthening but the basis of a solid and competative team is already in place and i have high hopes for a possible back to back promotion.

    Ended up drawing 1-1 after spewing some easy chances at the end, no playoffs this year, hopefully next year.

    Dismissed any interest in the job at Premierleague (although going down to Championship) Stoke as well.

    Finished 9th in the end, not too bad, got one player in team of the year (Jack Dean)

    Oh, great. My special board have terminated my parent link with Arsenal in favour of a link with League 1 Milwall. Clever idea board.

    Season 6 - SnakeXe's Merthyr Tydfil

    Coca-Cola League One - 17th (Table)
    Johnstone's Paint Trophy - Winners
    FA Cup - 3rd Round (lost v Man Utd)
    League Cup - 2nd Round (lost v Nottm Forest)

    Transfers

    What a mess. This was easily the most frustrating season of FM10 I've played so far. The cups were great, the only sides to beat us in any cup were both Premiership sides (yep, Forest are there now), the league was abysmal.

    The chances we created were great, we occasionally would score them, occasionally we'd do it a couple of times early on in a match, but we threw away so many points! Honestly, it was like there was an auto-draw feature enabled, as no matter what I did tactically/substitutionally we really could not hold on to a lead. The few clean sheets we got were as part of the semi-regular insipid 0-0 draws.

    The only hope for next season I have is that I've already secured the signings of two promising french wingers (one for each side), so hopefully adding them to the solid midfield will mean we just need a proper striker to get back up the table. Bear in mind I've been looking for one of those for 3 years now though...

    It wasn't all terrible news however, with the JPT win elevating me to legendary status at Merthyr

    That's a relief, the takeover finally happened and the transfer embargo was eventually lifted when the new chairman decided to keep me in charge
    The new chairman is the CSKA Moscow player Elvir Rahimić. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to take advantage of his Bosnian and Russian scouting knowledge.

    Season Summary


    In our second season in the Blue Square Premier we didn't really manage to attract much better players to the club, so a few signings here and there was all I managed. The team was probably a bit better than the one we had last year, and with Gilles Sunu playing a fair bit better, we managed to finish a very nice 10th place. The finances improved a bit, only due to a slight rise in attendance due to a slight rise in the quality of performances.

    The season was a lot similar to last season, apart from the fact the last few months we managed a good run of form which lead to a rise up the table. Promotion was never on the cards, but perhaps with a few signings next season we might just manage it. I think if Sunu has a very good year, then we might have a very good year too.

    The only restriction is that you have to be able to scout them, or actually have them in on trial before you can sign them.

    Drewski. Boston United. Championship. 2017/2018

    Out first ever season in the Championship, and with the squad I had I did not think that we would be able to survive unless there was a massive overhaul, so, after signing a bunch of players we surprised ourselves and the rest of the division by finishing in mid-table, we started the season very well, accumulating enough points to make sure that we would not be involved in a relegation battle come the end of the season, graph

    Squad - Defense was solid, midfield was competent, and my strikers were able to get into double figures, so overall, not bad; Kilgallon - solid in the heart of defense, his experience was valuable at the back, and with his age I will look to bring in someone younger next season; McCartney - only signed him in January but he had an immediate impact with his defensive abilities, he will be one to watch next season; Wallace - better of the two main strikers, although some of his play was a bit unconvincing, I have two more strikers coming in so he will most likely leave.

    Transfers - crap went out, also made over £3m in sales, Fenton was only with us for 6 months before he left for £2.5m, hopefully I'll get some kind of budget next season.

    Finances - we've become a selling club now, our 6k capacity stadium cannot cope with the wages and other expenditures, so unless we move to a new stadium we're stuck with selling players etc.

    Me

    Aims for next season:

    Improve squad.
    Move up the table.
