    Default [FM11] He's Going Home, He Going Home, He's Going... Nobby's Going Home... Version 2

    With Uncle Ron releasing a second and even further improved version of the English league system down to tier 8, I have decided to restart using this as I had only completed one season in my first save.

    Here's my setup. I've been very ambitious with this and loaded up far more than I ever have before. This is after Amaroq's description of how having playable/view only/inactive leagues work. Hopefully it won't run too slowly!

    Large database with Uncle Ron's England to level 8 file.

    Newcastle Town Football Club



    My hometown team. Newcastle-under-Lyme is a town with approximately 75,000 inhabitants. Despite being a fairly sizeable town, they have never had a football team of any real significance. Neighbouring Stoke-on-Trent is home to two Football League clubs, Stoke City and Port Vale. These teams, especially Stoke, pull many football supporters who live in Newcastle-under-Lyme away from the town's team.
    Formed as a Sunday League team in 1964, more recently the team has spent many years in the North West Counties League Premier Division, finishing runners up three times in the 1990s and being edged out in 2001/2 by Kidsgrove Athletic and Prescot Cables. The home match near the end of the season against local rivals Kidsgrove attracted a crowd of nearly 1100, then a league record until FC United of Manchester entered the league. Town lost 1-0 and finished 3rd.
    Things are improving though. After many years of trying, Newcastle Town finally won the North West Counties League Premier Division in 2009/10, and in some style. After winning their first 28 games they finished the season on 114 points and scoring 121 goals in a 42 game season. This puts them in the Northern Premier League First Division South, the highest Newcastle have ever been.
    Can I take Newcastle Town even further and emerge from the shadows of their more illustrious neighbours?



    Lyme Valley Parkway Stadium, Newcastle-under-Lyme holds 4000 with 300 seats and is in poor condition with a grass surface. The club has basic corporate, basic training and minimal youth facilities and limited youth recruitment. The team's rivals are Alsager Town, Congleton Town and Kidsgrove Atheltic.

    I am given a contract for 2 years and on £200 per week.

    This is the job I've always wanted...

    Sounds like a big game and you should get a good crowd in.

    Was it a shot? Was it a cross?



    Who cares? It was the second goal in a 3-0 win.

    Not a bad way to seal a win in the local derby...



    That put us 3-1 up and we won 3-2.

    2010/1 - Newcastle Town (Northern Premier League First Division South)
    It's the start of a long journey...

    I sign a £200 per week contract for 2 years.

    Lyme Valley Parkway Stadium, Newcastle-under-Lyme holds 4000 (300 seated) with basic corporate, basic training and minimal youth facilities with limited youth recruitment.
    There is a 4 year kit sponsorship deal worth £2000 per season which ends in 2013.
    Fierce rivals: None
    Rivals: Congleton Town, Alsager Town, Kidsgrove Athletic

    Board: Safe mid table
    Media: 13th
    Bookies: Unknown
    Season tickets: 90

    Things don't start well at all as we lose our opening three matches. We then host Chester in the FA Cup and wins, which spurs us on to win our first league game and start a good run.
    We settle down to mid table where we hover around for a while as injuries and suspensions hit the squad.
    The holiday period passed and we stayed in the middle with little prospect of us moving very far in either direction.
    However, we really picked up. We kept the pressure up and as likely title contenders Barwell went into free fall, we pushed them to take their place in the playoffs.
    However, defeat in the final match at home to Leek sees us miss out on the playoffs as Barwell cling on with our local rivals Kidsgrove just missing out too.

    Thanks Raware. Hopefully it will be even better this coming season.

    Bit of close season news... champions Liverpool were taken over by an English consortium who promptly sacked Roy Hodgson and replaced him with Roberto Mancini.

    Meanwhile, a very good opening day crowd of 290 saw a 2-1 win and this goal round off a sublime passing move.

    Mancini just got sacked from Arsenal in my game; they were sitting 9th.

    Mancini was still at Manchester City so it was a strange move.

    Good start Nobby, keep it up! I think I mentioned that Skelton looked good in the thread for your first time round, 16 goals is a very nice return.

    Thanks Snake. Skelton is pretty good but is finding a lot more competition for places this second season.

    Can't remember for sure but I think it was 1/2 star. I find it doesn't really work too well as a guide though as I'm finding it's chugging along quite nicely right now.

    Good start to the save Nobby. I like those little Youtube clips as well. You must have a decent graphics card in your computer. Mine is crap, I tried the demo of FM11 and it really slowed down the matches at high quality graphics. I suppose I should have expected that with a 2 year old laptop!

    Good luck with the next season.

    You can export the clips at a quality higher than your graphics card can support (I think, anyway).

    This save is temporarily on hold due to the Polish league issue with patch 11.2

    I booted up the game tonight and Steam automatically downloaded the new patch. It had completed before I came on the forum and saw that the issue was present. Indeed, my game isn't loading right now.

    Hopefully SI can sort it out very quickly.

    Save games with the Polish Second Division loaded won't run under 11.2. SI are looking into it. No word on when/if they will have a fix.

    Mr Young summed it up. New games on 11.2 with Poland running are fine. Games created before the patch aren't with the new patch installed.

    I know one thing for sure. I'll never use Steam in the future. That way I can control when I patch things. I'm very annoyed, I could have had a good long session tonight and also tomorrow night unless they find a fix in the day time.

    I've uploaded my save to the technical forum but I'm not holding much hope that they will have a fix today and I can play tonight.

    Incredibly frustrating!

    Thing is... if it's not fixed soon, then I won't get far into my career by the time FM2012 comes out which would mean I wouldn't be buying it.

    Assuming I enjoy a long career at Newcastle...

    You can change the patching preferences on Steam if you do right click > Properties > Updates Tab > Automatic Updates > Do not automatically update this game.

    Doesn't help now unfortunately, but might be worthwhile for future reference.

    Depends why you use Steam I guess!

    The reason I use Steam is mainly to not need the disk in the drive (I like the other benefits like being able to reinstall from Steam if I lose the disk/damage it, but I haven't needed that yet). I like to wait until the end of a season to patch up, so I turn patching off normally, then if one has been released when I arrive at the break, switch it back on.

    OK... while you carry on waiting for my next update, here's some entertainment...



    Unfortunately that's Glastonbury and not Lyme Valley Stadium's half time entertainment. We don't have that many fans.

    Arse. Just lost two games to a computer crash so instead of seven games left to play I now have nine again. I'm not playing them again tonight.

    I blame the drugs from Glastonbury.

    Perhaps you could come up with a soundtrack for each season? May I suggest this one, based on your comments!

    2011/2 - Newcastle Town (Northern Premier League First Division South)
    It's where the beautiful game turned ugly

    Board: Respectable position
    Media: 10th
    Bookies: 14-1
    Season tickets: 92 (up 2)

    Before the season starts the board generously give me an extra £50 per week to top my wages up to £250. Not a bad part time wage.

    We start flying. We score goals left right and centre and an early December 3-0 at local rivals and fellow flying starters Kidsgrove puts us clear of them by 5 points after 16 games having lost just once. We're ten clear of the third place team.
    In mid January we are still top having lost twice in twenty three games. The board give me an extra £25 per week and year on my contract. I also apply the second patch plus hotfix.
    Rushton got injured and the goals dried up. We might have scored more goals had we partnered Florence & The Machine and Enter Shikari up front. We start drawing too many games and losing a few. We're hanging on...
    And hang on we do. With a game to play we are three points clear of Sutton Coldfield but have a superior goal difference by twelve. Job done. Just. Silly, absurd, ridiculous.



    FA CUP PRELIMINARY ROUND: Ossett Town 1 Newcastle Town 0

    Great first season, good luck in the Northern Premier (I assume).

    Snake its not too hard, its mainly in the throat ;)

    deadfncat Seen them twice, in one music video, got a signed poster by the whole band and a signed Triablism limited edition top signed by Rou

    Well done Nobby! Good luck in the next division, I think you'll end 12th

    That also isn't the greatest song in my opinion, I prefer it when it's proper signing or screaming, not the in between but still I love them.

    Shikari live recently:

    Back to the game, England have appointed Roberto Mancini to replace Fabio Capello. Howard Wilkinson and Mike Bassett have been left disappointed with Bassett reportedly commenting "bloody foreigners" on hearing the news.
