    Season 2010/11 Hastings United - Blue Square South

    Oh that hurts...

    So, we finished 6th. Yes that is one place below the playoff places. Distraught about covers it - ok that's being melodramatic. What cost us the playoffs? Stats fans will see that scoring 63 goals whilst conceding 61 goals is a surefire way of ensuring that you stay a) part time and b) where you deserve to be.

    Finances

    152k in the red. Red is the bad one.

    Top Scorer

    Tommy Amos - 17 goals in 32 starts for the Irishman released from Wigan pre-season. He also grabbed 12 assists and the most man of the match awards in the league with 9. He's going to be gutted that he's not getting promoted...

    Player of the Season

    I'm not going to go with the fan verdict here - there's only 12 of them. Michael Ricketts can have this award, just because I feel like I may have slated him a little in previous updates.

    Goal of the Season

    I'll have to give this to centre back Andy Parry. He only scored 3 goals all season but he sure scores good goals when he makes the effort.

    Parry Vs Burgess Hill in the FA Cup 2nd Qual Rd

    I can't say I enjoyed not getting promoted but it should give me a summer to strengthen and clear out some dead wood.

    Oh, and just to make it worse I've been voted Manager of the Year. Thanks guys, rub it in.

    Nicked the logo from Google images - don't have a facepack though. Any images in previous posts are from FM-Base.

    Hope that helps

    Just a quick pre-season update for the Tiverton Town 2012/13 BSS season:

    If we don't win this bloody league this year I will be an INCREDIBLY unhappy manager!

    Preseason results:

    v Exeter 1-1
    v Plymouth 1-0
    v Bradford PA 1-1
    vTorquay 2-0
    v Crewe 2-2

    As I said: We don't win and I will be really unhappy, looking at those pre-season results.

    FC United of Manchester Season review 2011/2012

    Well well well, low and behold we got promoted via the playoffs after finishing 4th. After having a very rough Christmas and February, we managed to steady the ship and string together a long list of wins. Our fantastic GD was shot to pieces during the awful run of Christmas and Feb, which was slightly disappointing. However, winning Manager of the Year award was a good thing!

    So, to the playoffs:

    Loosing 1-0 in the home leg to Wrexham was a pitter pill to swallow. We had to come out fighting in the return leg and we did, beating them 0-3 in the away leg. Chris Fagan hadn't scored in 20 hours of football going into the final. He put that hoodoo to rest with a stunning performance against Histon in the final winning 2-0.

    Financially we are stable. Last season we were given a transfer budget of 6k, but I removed that instantly and pumped that into wages - giving me the chance to sign higher end players and keep my overall finances in check. Finances.

    Goals of the season:

    I have a few, which are still uploading now.

    1. FC United vs Gainsborough - Montano Goal 66th minute

    2. Eastwood vs FC United - Ozyakup Goal 83rd minute

    3. Corby vs FC United - Montano Goal 4th minute

    Star players:

    1. Chris Fagan - Started great bagging goals left right and centre, but it was his support work that puts him on this list. Running at defenders causing all sorts of problems, freeing up space for wingers and other strikers. Top player

    2. Christian Montano - Simply phenomenal. Dont need any more on that

    3. Samuel Ameobi - Suprisingly did very well. Stats aren't fantastic but scored a heap this season. Crucial goals too!

    4. Ozyakup - The creative force in my midfield. Fantastic player.

    5. James Gilpin - A ROCK between the sticks.

    Target for next season

    Survive. Work on putting as much financially behind the team as possible. From there to establish FC United as a BSP team and maybe a late push for promotion. Need to remove some of the deadwood and bring in some experience. Definitely need to bring in a dead ball specialist. Only signed 1 player so far, in Cedric Evina.

    Will do my pre season update later this evening.

    FC United of Manchester
    - Blue Square Premier - 2012/13 Season



    Another poor start to the season meant we were playing catch up all the way through, but again we did this superbly. At home we were nearly unbeatable, losing only twice all season, but our away form nearly cost us. After losing our penultimate game to rock bottom Solihull Moors, only a win against Wrexham on the final day would be good enough to win the title. We just about managed it.

    League Table
    League Positions Graph


    We were in playoff contention for the entire second half of the season, but when we won a few matches and seemed to be about to overturn the leaders, poor form hit us and we droped back. Luckily, no team ran away with it this year so our often indifferent form wasn't punishsed too badly.

    The cups were dismal again, and unless I get relegated, promotion means I'll never win the FA Trophy

    Squad


    The squad was almost completely overhauled in the summer, the strikers the only area to remain intact and they were the weakest part of the side. The midfield was superb, real depth and a variety of player, most of whom will hopefully be able to cut it in the division above. At the back we were fairly solid, Cameron Lindsay was a rock when he played. Again, hopefully I won't have to bring in too many new faces here.

    Finances


    Somehow we still have money in the bank, but we're shipping upwards of £20k a month now, so I'm not sure how long that'll last. Board still won't let me have training or youth upgrades though.

    Transfers


    New first XI basically, the standouts were Kaby, Lindsay and Cassidy. Out went the promoted side from the year before.

    Best XI


    I'd agree with this in every position, except maybe Akpan instead of Hewson.


    Onwards and upwards. I hope to keep the core of this squad the same, but I feel we'll need some more quality up front and at fullback to keep us up.

    I seem to be falling into old habits here - I now have 10 different nationalities in my squad.

    I must also admit that I haven't actually heard of one of the countries - 10 points for anyone who can point to Comoros on a map.

    Managed to scrape a pre-season friendly win against Championship side and parent club Swindon, only for Danny Wilson to come out in the media an slag me off! No chance of me getting anyone on loan this season then...

    I seem to be doing some sort of repeat of last year! Looked set to struggle and get relegated mid-season, then suddenly we surged up the table! I've went from 21st to 2nd in 20 games?! And in all comps, we're on a 23 match unbeaten run?!

    10 games to go, this could all go wrong yet...

    Wowsers, the step up to League 2 is looking sharp at the moment. 5 straight losses to start the season, our through balls are looking amateur and we look generally inept.

    Just a quick update on my game. Sorry no screenshot since I am posting from work. Only 4 games in with Canvey and sporting an 0-4 record. We do have 4 losses but every game has been 1-0 except for the second where we conceded 3 penalties. We have had more chances and more possession each game but just cannot find net. It doesn't help that both Chris Fagan and Nathan Rooney went down for 2 months at-least in our 2nd to last pre-season game. Callum Bagshaw has been disappointing in his lack of finishing. Just signed Christian Montano before I stopped playing last night so hopefully he will brighten the attack until Fagan gets back.

    On another note has anyone else had completely useless scouts? I have two on the Blue Square Premiere and have yet to receive even one player report.

    I know it has NOTHING to do with this year's challenge. But this man is a complete fruitloop, but at the same time a complete GOD.

    My scout in the BSN found Michael O'Halloran, who scored two goals in Colwyn Bay's first (and only so far) game of the season.

    Borini seems like quite a signing, Jordan. He's currently worth £2.5m and playing regularly at Sporting Lisbon on my save.

    Currently scored 8 and conceded 8 in my first 15 League 2 games.

    "BSP, we're having a laugh!"

    A good start! I had serious doubts over my starting XI before this game, especially my two new strikers Saric and Mason after a poor pre-season, but they looked really impressive.

    I was highly impressed by Jordanswinburn and his graphical display of stats, so I'll be "borrowing" his idea

    Edit: - I need to figure out how to increase the size of my screenshots!

    Darren1983: So close! Playoffs can be a toss-up and 3 penalties conceded in one match probably would have the neighbors checking in to make sure I was OK. 20th to 2nd in one season is quite the improvement though and I'm sure you can get promoted next season!

    Gypsum: Congrats on promotion! How did you manage to have a 610 average attendance with Chippenham? I think I'm averaging about half of that With that kind of average how do your finances look? I'm currently bleeding money horribly.

    GeeGeezOrz and davidbowe: Welcome to the challenge and GL!

    KLH84: 6th is still a good result! At least you didn't miss the playoffs only on goal difference. That would also have the neighbors asking questions about me! Congrats on manager of the year however! I've yet to even pick up a manager of the month yet in my first season.

    Yidd0!: Congrats on promotion. I'm jealous of your finances! I've seen James Gilpin on quite a few peoples list this year. I'm glad hes doing well for you and wishing I'd picked him at the start instead of Mr. Butterfingers!

    BennyD81 and Terras-FM: Welcome!

    Willy Wonka: Congrats on another promotion. Back to back promotions is some feat. 550k is a bit more than somehow having money in the bank :P Even if you blow 20k/month (which I'm already doing in the BSS lol) you have enough for 2 full years of losses with no incoming coming in!

    Re Billionaire thing: If I somehow become a billionaire, I'd do a IRL DFC Of course, it would take slightly longer than ours and I'd probably be a grumpy, ranting, old man before getting anywhere close to the Prem, but I'd love to try it! either way its a moot point however, as I don't see myself ever being a millionaire. Heck, I'd probably do it with a few million though!

    Questions of the day: Has anyone managed to sell a player yet? (apart from frees). If so, what is the biggest transfer fee you have been able to receive? Has anyone actually paid anything for a player yet?

    As people are starting to climb the leagues I figure someone has to be doing some buying and selling by now. Is it easier/harder to move people that prior years?

    Still catching up on the rest of the thread and should have a feedback post up soon.
    Working 100%. I think you are referring to the 2010 3d kits which don't work if I recall. Don't know if they are 09/10 season but Colwyn Bay are for this season so great for me.

    Got my FM fully set-up now with mega facepack and icons.

    Managed to sell Antal for 24k + 16k over 18 months and 10% of profit but he is the only one I've manged to get cash for others have been free and one was £0 and 30% sell on. Even droping transfer prices really low it's hard to get interest never mind offers.

    Not spent a penny on Transfers fees but I do offer sign-on fees to lower wages down on players who want more than what I can offer.

    Thanks. I just checked the stats and I think that's just my league average. Overall, it was 696 thanks to an FA cup run, i'm sure a playoff semi, and the final being at my ground helped too. But the season before it was 576, so not really that much of a jump. I am currently £100k in the red, but I think that's due to all the signings i've just made. At the end of last season I think it was more like -£20k.

    Hello young Nicholas

    19 years of age you say Mr Scout? Leading Championship potential? He wants to play for Hastings in the BSS? Is this a joke?

    For only £130 a week?

    Welcome to the Las Vegas of the south Nicky boy.

    Won 2-0 in the first leg of the playoffs against Grimsby. Broke the home attendance with 10284!

    FAT Trophy Final now, on the Saturday, with the second leg against Grimsby on Tuesday. Time to roll out the lesser played. It's alright though, St. Albans are in the league below

    So much for 4/5 star rated players, mr scout. Things dont appaer to be going fantastically, so I'm just hoping I can keep myself safe from relegation. At least it feels realistic, in that we are struggling and not rampaging our way to the top.

    Good to hear! I recognised the name and he's been cracking so far, 2 goals and 4 assists with a 7.70 rating. I also signed Ignasi Miquel because I remembered him from a previous challenge, and he looks like a beast in the BSP. So when I run out of players to look at when sorting by stats, I just have a scan through and see which names I recognise from this thread and they usually turn out to be decent!

    Hi - I'd like to participate with this challenge too.
    I joined in with the FM10 challenge until my computer hard drive died
    So fingers crossed this time around. After a few reloads, I've settled as manager of Carshalton Athletic

    Manager ScreenShots - hope the links work:

    First season update

    Finish position: 3rd (playoff winners!) http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/4396/footballo.png
    Team: http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/5303/football.png

    Everyone in the first team and reserve team released, brought a few to many players so I released a few but you can see my first team above. Omar koroma and fagan were basically the reason we went up scoring 30 and 20 goals respectively.

    Good luck Regariol.

    12 games in to the season and managed my first clean sheet. Pitty we couldnt score either, which is just teh fourth time we have failed to score.

    @Mt Mckinlay, I feel sorry for Hampton there, with their goal difference the same as the team above.

    Thanks mate - almost threw my laptop at the wall after the 3 pens! Just building my team for promotion next season - thinking of changing from my 4-2-3-1 to a 4-4-2 to help

    Congratulations, Jordan. Great job on the scoreline too.

    Just had my first ever fan day on FM. Apparently, it was a success after a pretty decent 2v2 draw with fellow promotionites, or relegation rivals, Histon.

    @Darren. I got lucky on pens and seemed to have a similar story as you - I finished 19th first season before grabbing 4th, but thankfully, I got my penalties right unlike the opposition,

    Leamington FC - End Jan Update 2011/12

    After 26 games we are in 10th just 6 points off the playoff places but only 9 points above relegation so it still could go either way. We are also through to the 3rd rd of the FA Trophy where we have a tough away game at Kettering who are 2nd in the BSP


    With a wage buget of just £3,600 I have managed to bring in 42 players ( I must be related to Barry Fry) & I still have £300 left to spend but only £29,000 left in the bank. This is my current 1st team squad & a lot of the other signings are youngsters who will probable never make it due to the abismal training facilitys & also due to the fact I cannot get any good coaches for the £65 per week my board allow me to offer. I did get Scott Hiley to agree to be my Ass man for £50 after many weeks of trying. It seems strange that the Ass man Budget was lower than for the coaches & scouts.

    The team are now starting to play well after a poor start to the season with 4 red cards for my central defenders in the first 15 games. Also I do not think my players understand tactics as they seem to create more chances when I tell them to defend.

    I have just been informed I won The January Manager of the Month Award for winning 4 out of 5 Games.

    Second season is going pretty much the same way as the first. The performances seem much improved, we're having the better of most games but sometimes falling a bit short. Last season we were often outplayed but managed to scrape results.

    I'm encouraged though. Hopefully with the way we're playing it will suddenly come together and we can start winning.

    Sam Williams has come in and done fantastic. He's been immense for me on the past couple of versions of FM so when I saw him on the free players list I couldn't resist. Kieran Murtagh was amazing on my Nuneaton game last season also so I've brought him in and he is doing a fine job in the centre. Shame whoever I play alongside him in the middle seems to get injured. Luke Joyce has just done his cruciate ligaments.. at least 10 months out.

    Finances are still falling rapidly, despite me cutting down on wages and now being nearly £1,000 a week under budget. Doesn't seem to be helping much though so I may splash out soon to try and make sure we get promoted this season. In time success will sort out the debt right?..

    Hendon Dons 1st Half Report: 2013/14-League 2

    WINS: 13
    DRAWS: 7
    LOSSES:3

    Position: 1st(barely) Top 6 are within 6 points.

    ooh 1st game manager has sympathy for me. First time the opening day manager wasn't a giant douche. neat.
    SARIC MUST BE STOPPED.

    Games I choose to comment on
    :

    Game: 1 @Torquay

    Phil Imray kicks it deep on a free kick, to be intercepted and driven deep into torquays half. A Torquay defender gathered it up only to be met by David Ball who took the ball and slotted it in easily for a 1-0 lead.

    Chris Zebroski scores a header off a free kick(seriously annoying every goal is like off a free kick or corner or something ugh)

    1-1 half.

    Right off the start in the 2nd half David Ball crosses it into Nikola Saric who heads it in 2-1.

    Sebastien Carole on for Jim Paterson in the 62nd.

    Alan McCormack absolutely scorches one from 30 yards out to make it 3-1. Another assist for Ball, but what a finish.

    Alan Navarro in for Marceo Rigters in the 71st.

    A shot off the woodwork(Ball), and a superb save(on Saric) keep this score at 3-1 instead of 4-1 heavy pressure though.

    It wasn't even a fair game.

    57/43 pos.
    17-6 shots
    5-1 shots on goal.

    yeah this team is good.


    My board are a bunch of hardasses. ugh.

    League cup 1st round at home against Colchester. Should lose since im playing mostly bench guys, since 3 games in 7 day span. lost 0-2 actually looked better but goalie stuffed us.

    Johnstones Paint Trophy draw against L1 Barnet. At least it's at home.

    Game #4: at home against Northampton


    Finally a manager trash talking me. Says I won't be in league 2 next season. *cause i'll be in league 1???*

    Bignall scores for northampton 14th minute. 0-1 ungh.

    Nikola Saric scores on a rebound in the 42nd minute. 1-1

    Bignall scores again to make it 1-2. right back kept him onside

    Hasmet Taskin on for Alan Navarro in the 56th.

    David Ball scores in the 68th minute off a nice assist by Saric. 2-2

    William Ekong on for Pat Kanyuka in the 69th.

    Sebastien Carole on for an injured Bradley Garston in the 78th minute(hope its not bad >_>)

    Nikola Saric scores with no time left in extra time. IT'S CALLED OFF. OH BULL. TOTAL BULL. Whistle blown 2-2.

    utter crap. was absolutely not close to offsides. uuuuuugh.

    FA silent over criticism. blugh.

    lost in JPT 0-1. whatever.


    Game # 12 against Stockport who are currently in 2nd, while I am in 1st with equal records, my GD is +11 compared to +10.

    David Ball scores his 13th goal of the season from a nice pass from Nikola Saric. 1-0

    Jervis of Stockprot scores after my goalie rushed out and passed it right to him. ugh. 1-1. oh my bad he headed it to him with NOBODY AROUND. super ugh.

    1-1 half

    Sebastien Carole on for Bradley Garston in the 62nd minute.

    Albert Owusu-Ansah on for Maceo Rigters in the 76th.

    Walker for stockport scores in the 79th minute.

    Westcarr scores for stockport in extra time. 3-1. well that sucked.

    Hereford draw in the FA CUP- AWAY+ L2 TEAM WHEN THERE ARE A BILLION CRAPPY TEAMS. Draws hate me. won 2-1. woo

    yahoo second round FA Cup draw at a BSP team. woo. gateshead are favorites????? lies and slander. won 5-1.

    haha Harry Redknapp couldn't get England to the 2014 WC, and got fired (although he was retiring end of season)

    4th round FA Cup draw against my favorite EPL(theyre in CH in the game )Stoke. AT Stoke also. grrr

    Saric out 2-3 weeks. boo.

    23 games left wee.

    Bit disappointed finally lost after 11 games unbeaten streak (majority draws) to top of the table Salisbury wouldn't have minded as much if we didn't dominate the game.

    Both their goals came from bad first touches by my midfielders, still sitting pretty in 9th place after 16 games

    Comedy football - the winning goal away against Maidenhead was my left winger tackling the goalkeeper and tucking away in the goal!

    FC United of Manchester
    Season 1 - 2012/13 – Blue Square Premier
    Preseason - Media Prediction: 24th
    We Are Football League

    Club Info

    Into the Blue Square Premier, the board wanted me to attempt to avoid relegation, but I went for mid-table.

    The Season
    This season was not good, even if the end result was. 16 games in, and I was facing relegation. 20 games later, I'm 2nd in the league. It took 4 different approaches, and some major switches in players, but eventually we got there. Borini was unbelievable, and we broke a good few records, including a 23 match unbeaten run and a 10284 attendance. We also lost in the FA Trophy final to St. Albans, an unplayable team, but that's nothing...

    FC United Awards

    Fan's Player of the Year
    Fabio Borini
    No surprise here. 40 goals. He deserves it entirely.

    Top Scorer
    Fabio Borini
    40 goals in 52 appearances. The guy was simply godlike. An average rating of 7.29. I believe he even got a 10.0 rating in one match, when he scored 5 past Eastbourne Boro. I hope to keep him for years to come, and that he continues this. He scored 26 more goals than our next top scorer Dominic Knowles, which is a little worrying, but nevertheless... Borini was FC United this season.

    The Jordan Swinburn Award (The Surprise of the Season award)
    I honestly can't decide here. Either Borini's 5 against Eastbourne, or his FOURTY goals!

    The Millward Player Choice Award (Manager's Player of the Year)
    Fabio Borini
    You know, I wanted to vote for someone not so obvious, but I just can't. Fabio Borini WAS FC United this year. Without him, I'd not have been promoted. He deserves this award more than anyone.

    Stay up. That's it really. Apart from keeping our finances going strong like they have been lately, and making our team more than just Borini.

    FC United - Blue Square Bet North - 2011-2012

    We made a bad start to the season by only picking up two points or so from our first five games, I guess this was because it was a total new team and I had to be patient in order to let them gel because we picked up after our first win and then won 11 games in all competitions in a row. The game that ended this run was a 3-0 defeat away to Sheff Wed in the FA Cup 1st Round. We looked very inconsistent from this defeat up until January where we really showed the league that we meant business and we showed how good of a squad we actually had. The players started to play well together and we climbed upto 1st to win the league on the last day of the season. The most vital win on the way to this was a 2-1 win away to Nuneaton who were 6 points clear at the time in March.

    League Table

    As you can see by the table, there was only a 3 point difference between us and Nuneaton, whom were promoted rightfully by the play-offs. They were at the top of the table for a long time but went on a sticky patch while we were in magnificent form and that was the difference between us and them. Gainsborough were also a team who had great form in the second half of the season and they also climbed into the play-off spots.

    League Positions

    As you can see from the graph we struggled in the first couple of games and were in the bottom three, but I kept faith in the team and I calmed my frustration down and continued to be patient and it paid off where we made a big climb up until christmas where we were a little in-consistent for a little while and as you can see at a vital time in the second half of the season we climbed up to the top 2 and then finally took top spot from Nuneaton.

    Transfers

    We made a lot of transfers to say the least along with releasing a lot of players which was probably the best option for us.

    Star Players

    Ryan Brobbel - Was signed for cover of the centre midfield but impressed and earned a first-team place, and he was brilliant in the last couple of months, scoring a lot of vital goals for us.

    Jacob Hronec - My assistant said in his team report that he felt we were weakest on the right-hand side of midfield where Hronec was playing but I disagreed with his views as he was fantastic for the majority of the season, like Brobbel he scored some vital goals but he was probably one of our most consistent players.

    Aaron Pierre - This lad earned 11 league man of the match awards in 38 games which is a pretty good record for a CB I think. He scored a lot of goals for a defender and at one point was my top scorer at five goals in November, although that was all he scored for the season he stayed on great, although his morale was always generally quite low, even sometimes very poor when the rest were above okay.

    I have already started pre-season for the 2012/2013 season and have made a couple of signings which have interested me so far. The pre-season aims are to polish the squad, there will be a lot of buying and selling players again, and I will be looking to bring some cash in off selling players while continuing the trend to just purchase players on a free. This should keep our finances stable enough. Also I have quite a few home friendlies to bring in some decent revenue and we should start the season in a great position financially wise and hopefully we will look great on the pitch as well.

    Jordan, with Borini scoring that many, where do you have him playing on the pitch? Hes a ST obviously, but how many do you play with, is he played central, etc?

    Two up front. Him and another, which usually rotated.

    Finally broke out of a 7 game winless streak. Team just cant find a way to score goals. I have what I consider two quality forwards in Chris Fagan and Christian Montano so I dont know why I cant put more in. I'm thinking maybe because they are to close to the same type of player. Would a tall target man possibly help? What stats should I look for in one?

    Just a quick update in my game with Leamington - I've just reached early December - 16 games into the league season, and I've found a bit of a strange problem I am having so far, and wandering if anyone else is?

    The problem? Im really really bad at home! We are currently 11th in the table - and all this is due to our home record.
    Away record P8 W5 D1 L2
    Home record P8 W2 D1 L5

    I just cant figure out what it is. I play Defensive away - and started the season with that at home. Then when a game came up I was slight favourites for I went Control and still lost! I have lost the last 3 home league games and all have been to teams near the bottom of the table. And yet in between that I went and won at top of the table Altrincham and was unlucky to lose away at Droylsden.

    Any one got any ideas what it could be?

    I do think we are overachieving in terms of the players we've got - I found it quite hard finding good players because of our low rep - but we must be doing something right away - and if we could replicate that at home we would be chasing promotion!

    Okay, has anyone seen my script? It's this big thick book like object with the title "FC United lose heavily to recently relegated Torquay in the first League 2 game of the season"?

    Because, we seem to have misplaced it and stumbled across a one titled "FC United 7 - 0 Torquay"...

    *I shall have the video posted when it processes*

    TONBRIDGE TIL I DIE, TONBRIDGE TIL I DIE.

    We did it. We actually did it. My team of complete no hopers have actually achieved the impossible, and it's the best FM feeling i've had in a long time. After having the most inconsistent season with the most, what appeared, unfit, booze swigging/coke taking players, they came from the mediocrity of mid table to produce an end of season run which would make Blackpool's start to the Premiership look almost shameful. It came down to Bath City in the final of the playoff, a team that had done us earlier on in the season quite convincingly, but the man who hadn't scored a goal in what seemed like centuries, Guiseppe Sole, done the supersub, and scored in extra time, which led to a quick pause so I can run around like an absolute lunatic, caught my breath, tactic screen, 7 at the back, and we quite literally parked the bus. Never have I been so proud. Thanks to a few notable signings (Martin Hardie, Lee Hendrie) to establish a decent old rearguard, and to get knocked out the cups early which helped us extremely, Tonbridge are moving up, with the most depressing budget, the most depressing wage budget, but with the happiest manager there could be. Angels Til I Die!!!

    FC United - 2011/12

    League Table - BSN - 10th

    Top Scorer - Joe McKee - 13

    Star Player - Julian Chérel - 7.16 rating and 10 goals as a CB

    Overall I think the season went ok. I signed far too many players to begin with and then spent the whole season fiddling about with tactics to try and find something that could get us up the leagues over the next few years. Hopefully next season will bring promotion!

    RORY FALLON! 80th minute goal to give us a 1-0 win over Championship Leicester in the League Cup 1st Round

    So what if they had a goal disallowed

    FC United - 2012/13 - Pre-Season

    Media Prediction - 19th

    I think we should easily be able to finish well above 19th this year. I'm confident of at least a playoff spot because I've managed to sign a couple of quality strikers and an amazing winger to supply the assists.

    Transfers

    I didn't want to sign many players this year because of how many I took on last season and the fact we were leaking money throughout the year but I managed to find a few players who had left top premiership clubs and who had the quality to make promotion a real possibility for us so I grabbed them! Hopefully in my mid-season report I'll have something positive to tell you guys!

    Tooting and Mitcham have finally won a game in the Blue Square South. A remarkable 3-1 victory over Lewes snapped a nine game losing streak. We are at the bottom of the league table, 5 below the next relegation bound team, but at least we have points! On another positive note, we got three lucky draws in the FA cup qualifying. We've won our first two qualifying games and are favored over Bellericay in the next round.

    I did a complete team review from the seniors on down to the under 18s. We really shook things up and moved players all around right before our win. Many were angry to be demoted. But hopefully, the win will give more of a positive boost for the team in the morale department.

    I think Jordanswinburn is the front runner at the moment having made it to league 2, though someone else is also L2 iirc but I cant remember who

    My team are crap, concede 90th minute equalisers/winners every game crap.
    It'll be very hard keeping this lot afloat.
