    As far as I know, there's nothing you can do. Unless you've got a back up I'm afraid you're going to have to start again.

    12 games into my second season in charge of Guiseley and we're sat proudly atop the Blue Sqaure North, 5 points clear having lost just one game.

    AFC Wimbledon (temporary) in a playoff spot

    New signings Simon Dawkins has 2 goals in 3 games and Maxi Gradel has 1 goal and 2 assists in 3 games, along with a couple of man of the match awards

    At least you can still play, slow FM is better than no FM.

    Got yourself a couple of islanders then, got about 8 myself. They turned us from a mid table side into promotion contenders.

    Nah. Only 1 player from Montserrat on my team right now.

    I have my eyes on 3 more players from there, but not sure if they can make an impact on my team.

    Now currently 11th, 6pts off 7th place Cheltenham.

    Whatever the reason is, it must be the same as why my playes find it impossible to keep a clean sheet.

    I wouldn't complain about having a Premiership parent club - I got Leeds as mine and they were still stuck in League 1 for the first season.

    The refs really are against you! We still continue to concede silly goals, it's like my players don't think they're in a game until the opposition have scored.

    Still, considering the success roberto has with Arsenal as parent club makes me a bit jealous

    5 games and counting on penalties against us...I also had 3 media interactions about penalties not called against us. I refuse to comment as the FA always win and I'm always wrong (honesty we should be allowed to complain against the FA about poor refereeing, and the FA actually doing something about it)

    Very true, I'm a bit jealous myself, would have loved to get one of the big teams as a parent but our location just didn't allow it.

    I stopped complaining to the FA a long time ago as I don't think I've ever once been right. It's easier in the long run as it doesn't land you with any touchline bans.

    So far I managed to get promoted first season with Chippenham through the playoffs - now it is mid season and I'm 9th in the BSP - although I'm on an amazing run and could sneak into the playoofs at this rate - I managed to get Bristol City as a parent club at the start of my second season and I've loaned 5 players from them - including Lee Trundle who is getting the fans in - this challenge is top stuff - well done Dafuge and good luck to everyone on it!!!

    Yeah, I might do that when my AFC Wimbledon team goes to the Championship. Makes it a bit easier knowing I got promoted to the Premiership without any loan players

    Marine Update Season 2009/10 BSP

    Not mch to say really, media said I was to finish 21st, wasn't a bad guess reallys I finished 17th. Let in to many goals and didn't score enough there is no point even talking about the cups as I only won one game in all comps combined!

    For next season I am looking to sign some experince as my average age was only 20. Have already signed Phil Jevons and am looking at signing a new back 4 as well as a gk.

    For all the people whose teams keep getting pens against them, when I was in BSN my team gave away loads of pens, but after promotion I hardly gave away any. Think the refs are just crap in BSN/S

    roberto: good luck getting FM to work on your computer. I have a backup computer to play FM just in case

    darren: ah that sucks. Maybe loan some players from your parent club and look through the player search to see who you can find on trial. Sold over US$100k of trial players in my tenure so far, all but one who never played a league game for us

    The commentary in my latest game even agreed with me that they should have been a penalty in my last game against Halifax

    Commentary:
    "Was it a penalty?", "It looked like one!"

    Destroyed St. Albans 7-0 in the first match of the season behind 4 goals from Rhys Murphy. I don't expect the rest of the season to be this easy but it's a hell of a start!

    Well I've started and uploaded my manager profile, don't know if this will show as I haven't posted a picture on this site before bar that one of my profile last time - that was a long time ago. Here goes.



    I took over Hednesford because I did Chippenham last time and I fancied higher rep this time round. Still could have been worse - could have been AFC Wimbledon

    EDIT: it worked, three cheers.

    Anyway I told the board I would get a top half finish although secretly I'm hoping for promotion. Wish me luck!

    Yeah opinel is real crap unfortunately. Looks like he should be better but he has a propensity to pass to the wrong team :P

    Lucky for me he is only my backup. Fabian Wilnis is my starting DL. He is also crap but less so. Complains because I only made him vice-captain instead of captain. Should've known better than to have a dutch player on my squad

    My saves gone weird, players that have contracts running out on 30.6.2008 haven't been released and I'm on 7th July, I can only think they are on a week to week contract but it says full time in their profile.

    I finished my AFC Wimbledon 2011-2012 season at League 2. We did ok, certainly better than the media prediction of 24th

    Season update to come.

    Well, there's a few ways to find a DL

    • get one from your parent club
    • find all the DLs through your scout
    • find one through trials. There's always someone you can find
    specific players, I have no idea

    Billericay update season 3

    August
    The season began with a change of captain and formation because Hadji was retiring on the 25th of january i decided to give the captain armband to our promicing young right back 21 year old simmon Madden and i decided a switch from our defensive 5-3-2 which we had used in the first two seasons to a more basic 4-4-2 was in order. Our best start to a season to date saw us draw dag and red leaving us still serching for that opening day win. Unlike previous years we didnt with a 2-1 win over crawley coming next and to complete the hatrick of results we lost 1-0 in our first televised match of the season to aldershot who although we didnt know it at the ime would become our key title rivals. We completed the month with 2 wins to leave us in a good position for the rest of the season.

    September
    We continued our winning run with a 2-1 win over st albans a defeat to halifax followed before we got back to winning ways against oxford. Two draws followed against rochdale and Burton before we again finished the month with 2 wins.

    October
    October opened with 2 more wins before a boring 0-0 against Forest Green. We didnt take long to get back to winning ways though with Northwhich and grimsby being defeated. Our first cup match followed with the fa cup pitting us against Newport County who would go on that season to win the BSS. With this draw and the fact that it began to look like i was in a playoff battle i decided it would be a great chance to rest players and the one first teamer left in the starting line up harry forrester on loan from aston villa managed to score 2 goals to take us through 2-0.

    November
    Resting players didnt work though as we were beaten 1-0 by ebbsfleet. The FA cup gave us a tough first round draw with League 1 Port Vale are opponents. A 0-0 draw at there place was followed by a 2-0 home win for us putting us through to the FA cup 2nd round. A 4-1 league win over Cambidge set us in good sted to welcome another league 1 side to the New Lodge.

    December
    Luton were the opponents this time and we were hoping to make it two years running that we made it to the FA Cup 3rd round. It wasnt to be though as we went out 2-1 in a closeley fought game. Our November league form carried over to December with 2 more wins following before our FA Trophey game against llkeston which our second side managed to win 3-1. A second draw this season against Dag and Red followed in the league efore we played Woking in the Setanta shield 4th round. Unfortunately we lost 2-1 but this allowed me to focus more on the league and our final cup comeptetition.

    January
    A 2-1 win over Kettering started the new year well before we faced one of our two main title rivals Aldershot. Us Aldershot and Cambridge had pulled quite a big gap over the rest of the league and Cambridge and Aldershot saw this as a chance to take top spot off us. A 2-1 win over Aldershot kept us at the top though and it began to look like they may fall off us., 2 draws in the league for us though kept it very close at the top. We needed a replay to see us through our FA trophey 2nd round match against dag and red before we lost to Weymouth and beat St Albans.

    February
    Thsi month saw title rivals plummet off the battle at the top towards the scrap for playoff places. For us though the month began well with two wins against woking, one in the league and one in the cup. Two mroe league wins followed though leaving our total for the last 4 games at 9 goals scored 0 conceeded. We were brought down to earth though suffering defeats to Burton and Oxford. BSS Dorchester gave me a chance to test out my reserves as we beat them2-0 in the FA Trophey

    March
    By the time march started it was clear it was a two horse title race with me and Aldershot going head to head at the top. We began the month with a dissapointing draw at home to 3rd place York, before beating Kidderminster 3-0 and Droylsden 2-0. ebbslfleet were our opponents in the FA Trophey Semi Final a 1-1 draw at there place was followed by a 5-0 win in the league and a 0-0 draw at home in the cup putting us through on away goals. A 2-1 defeat to Grimsby who will be our opponents in the final meant that we wer know level on points at the top. We beat Norwhich 3-1 before losing to ebbsfleet meaning we were know 3 points off the pace

    April
    2 more wins a draw and a loss meant we went into the final 2 games 1 point from the top. An easy 2-1 win over Salisbury was made even better when it turned out 3rd placed York had beaten 2nd place Aldershot 5-1 leaving us two points clear with a superior goal difference. Our final game of the season wwas against kettering so i took a risk by playing a few of the fringe players to try and avoid us picking up injuries ahead of our trip to wembely. A 0-0 draw for both us and aldershot meant i was league champions. Unfortunately even resting players failed to avoid injuries as outr young influential CM Bayley picked up an injury in training and will be out for a month.

    May
    The FA Trophey final was opun us and it was the first time Billericay had ever made the final and there first appearence at Wembley.18000 people turned up to watch the final. Going in 2-0 at half time everything looked great until in the second half grimsby got 1 back. A penalty put us 3-1 away before we ourselves gave away a penalty and it was 3-2 with 6 mins remaining. At 90mins it was still 3-2 and there was an audiable groan from the coach of billericay when it was announced there would be 5 minuites of added time. Tankfully the score remained 3-2 and Billericay won there 2nd trophey of the season


    Look out for next seasons more detailed EOS updates i will be giving now we are in league football

    AFC Wimbledon 2011-2012 (Coca-Cola League 2)

    League 2

    Media Prediction: 24th
    Finishing Position:
    17th
    FA Cup: 1st Round (lost to Barnet)
    Carling Cup: we enjoyed participating in it at least lol (lost to Cardiff)
    Johnstone's Paint Trophy: 2nd Round \o/ (defeated Barnet, lost to Brighton)

    The Squad

    Squad

    It was an ok season for the team. We were contending in February when everything fell apart. Kazenga Lua Lua broke his leg and the season went downhill from there. Not sure if any loan players this year will come back next year. The striker tandom of Dawkins and Young look good for next season (and I hope Olsen will come back next year). Currently shopping Cameron and Black as I look to upgrade my back four (I already signed Darius Charles on a free).

    Goalkeepers

    Michael Taylor is gone. I tried to sell him but there were no takers. Harvey Scott, and Andrew Armstrong will battle it out to backup Shayne Barlow. I also hope to get another goalkeeper reject in the July transfer window.

    Defense

    The back 4 most of the season consisted of Paul Black, Gary Elphick, Ajet Shehu, and Tyrone Cameron. However, I hope to sell Black along with Cameron to make way for youngsters Dan Bacon, and James Allen more playing time next year.

    Midfield

    Starting in my midfield are: Saulo Asajile, Craig Bentham, Jon Challinor, and Maxi Gradel. Overall, I think the midfield looks solid, with some youngsters like Karl Prout, and Yaser Kasim.

    Forwards

    Only got 3 of them: Simon Dawkins, Jonathon Obika, and Lewis Young. Hope to either get Obika or Olsen next season (or both).

    Other Info

    Finances

    Team Info

    Transfers

    Transfers

    Many new players were brought in to avoid the drop back to Blue Square Premier.

    LuaLua and Bentham were both found by my scout, so I signed them. Brought in many players on trial and signed some of them. If they don't make my first-team, then I can sell them for profit.

    There's a clause in Scott Rhodes transfer that will net us US$110k if he scores 40 league goals. He scored 15 this year so hope he scores at least 25 with Hayes & Yeading next year

    Michael Connor was an integral part of the team but the offer from Darlington was too good to turn down, and we had replacements in case he left. Darlington is going to League 1 next year, so good luck to him.

    James Dalton was a spare part in this year's Sell-the-Backup-Goalkeeper for profit.

    We also sold Terry Dunfield for free + 50% sell-on clause.

    Key Players

    Jonathon Obika, Lewis Young, Kazenga LuaLua, Gary Elphick, Dan Bacon

    Looking Ahead

    • improve training and youth facilities
    • Compete for a playoff spot
    • make some depth signings
    AFC Wimbledon Career
    2008-2009: 2nd in BSS. Promoted.
    2009-2010: 12th in BSP.
    2010-2011: 5th in BSP. Promoted.
    2011-2012: 17th in L2.

    1. Just keep trying I guess...
    2. Do it NOW!
    3. use player search, scout anyone you find intriguing, trial them, and then sign them if they're not crap. Only scout wanted players to save a bit of time lol.

    Our inability to keep a clean sheet has now seen us dumped out of the FA Cup and then get done over in the league by a mediocre Tamworth side. Looks like some defensive changes will need to be made pretty quickly.

    Just recieved two defeats on the bounce . The first one was Burscough and we had someone sent off and just didn't look up for it. Second one was my fault, I went for the win and got caught on the counter. I won the first two games though.

    It seems that I'm just going to have to be content with scoring more than the opposition - it seems increasingly less likely that we'll keep another clean sheet at all this season, we just like to give away goals.

    In November now, so no chance of anyone new coming in. We're not having problems scoring, we're averaging 3 goals a game at the moment, but we concede 2. Which is making matches much closer then they should be

    Well if you can't repair the defense you might as well try and improve the offense

    It really is up to you, there's no strict guidelines on how often you can update.

    As a rule of thumb it should be once a season at the minimum but more frequent updates are welcome provided they don't clog up the thread and annoy people.

    A mid season update followed by and end of season review would be a great way to go about it.

    Yay, the board actually agrees with me (for once) that my 'fairly basic' training facilities and 'minimal' youth facilities needs to be improved

    Also got over US$500k of gate receipt from the Carling Cup match against West Brom. We did lose however

    Real London Update - Season 22 (2029/2030)

    To Begin....

    Stadium Expansion - An extra 9260 seats will be added on, taking my stadium up over the 40,000 mark.


    Premiership Prediction - 8th
    Premiership Position - 4th
    F.A Cup - Quarter Final
    League Cup - 2nd Round

    Premiership - Graph | Table

    Premiership : A brilliant season. Fell off towards the middle/end of the season, and was about 15 points behind first place before a fantastic final run in saw me win 7 of 8 games, and finish just behind the leaders. 4th place or better is what I aimed for, and its what I got. Next season the top 2 is my aim, although winning the title is a real possibility for us if we buy a few more key players and keep consistent throughout the season.

    F.A Cup : Another great season in the F.A Cup, although I'm yet to see the Semi-Final. For the 3rd time in 4 years, Crystal Palace have been the team to knock me out of this cup, and its starting to become boring when I draw them.

    League Cup : Season after season I get battered about in this competition. Aldershot of League 1 were the team fortunate enough to draw us this season. Every year the little teams must be preying for Real London to come out of the hat for them, as they know its an easy passage through.

    Best Elevens - Season | Overall

    Club Ranking - 63rd, (Up 2 places)

    Players of the Season

    Raul Arguelles - Didn't play all that well at the end of the season, but definitely did at the start. Finished the season with 30 goals in 28 games.

    Liam Lamb - Pretty much Arguelles' replacement when he hit his dip in form, and scored the goals the Arguelles couldn't. Fits into the team perfectly, and is still very young.

    Omar Cisneros - Always here. Another fantastic season for Assists, and his all round play seems to be coming along brilliantly.

    GTAIV - Scored an impressive amount of goals. Even hit a hat-trick on his debut for Spain. Now seemingly a regular in the national side, his club game has also risen to an international level.


    Season Summary
    Aside from the League Cup, this was a ground breaking season. Champions League football, a great squad assembled, financially set and only looking to better things. I've already got my eye on 4 or 5 players I hope to sign for next season, and have been dropping a lot of the dead weight in the team thats getting on a bit now. If I can put a decent cup run together, and who knows, maybe even win one, that would be brilliant for next season, but my main aim for the season is to finish 3rd or higher and get into the Champions League Group Stages.

    Congratz darren on promotion

    AFC Wimbledon doing very well right now, currently 8th in League 2 after 10 games.

    The whole seems wanted lol. Bought striker Jonny Dixon for US$75k, while selling Barlow (US$45k), Bacon (US$60k), Dale Bennett (US$20k), and Tyrone Cameron finally (US$35k).

    Lewis Young has 6 goals in 12 games, Dawkins 5 in 7, and LuaLua 4 goals in 11 games.

    Woo!! Two seasons, two promotions. Scraped through to league 2 on the last day of the season then won the semi and final by penalties in the playoffs.
    Havent got anywhere near the amount of signings i wanted to but hopefully have enough to stay in the division. I think a few seasons building in this league is going to have to happen, cant rely on parent team, liverpool sending me players who are better than the rest of the division anymore.

    Need some solid players at the back and i have no depth in full back positions, times like this i wish attribute masking was off but it des make the game more challenging than usual. As soon as i can scout europe i'll be happy...

    Just can't score atm

    I have Charlie Macdonald, Kevin Townson, Jake Speight and Greg Palmer and none of them can score. I might even have to go odwn to desperate measures and put Dino Maamria up top. Any ideas for tactics on getting your strikers a bit more clinical?

    Just signed a new striker called Charles Ademeno set up two on his debut v Droylesden and scored two on his Cup debut against Kings Linn.

    My talisman from Chippenham, Kirk Hudson, has got released aswell after an argument with the manager so I'm going to try to get him.
