    I keep waiting to see Nobby bring an untested back with the name of John Coals into the squad, or something like. It would fit.

    2012/3 - Newcastle Town (Northern Premier League Premier Division)
    It's going places we've never been before

    Board: Fight bravely against relegation
    Media: 21st
    Bookies: 16-1
    Season tickets: 93 (up 1)

    A good league start where we don't lose in the first six games gets overshadowed by an embarrasing exit in the FA Cup. This starts a struggle for goals and results.
    Through Winter the struggle continues and we're deep in the relegation fight.
    In mid January I am offered a contract extension for a further year and wages of Ł275 per week (up Ł25). I sign and this sparks an upturn in form including two important wins at Vauxhall and Kendal.
    The final third of the season is a battle but battle we did as we manage to stay up with one game to spare.



    FA CUP FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND: Ellesmere Rangers 2 Newcastle Town 1
    FA TROPHY SECOND QUALIFYING ROUND: Dunstable Town 2 Newcastle Town 0
    NORTHERN PREMIER LEAGUE CHALLENGE CUP THIRD ROUND: Newcastle Town 0 Ashton United 1
    NORTHERN PREMIER LEAGUE CHAIRMAN'S CUP: Newcastle Town 0 Chorley 2 (at Moss Lane, Altrincham)


    Top rating: David Morley 6.97
    Top goalscorer: Liam Rushton 11 in 34 games
    Top league goalscorer: Liam Rushton 11 in 31 games

    PLAYER OF THE YEAR


    YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR
    David Morley

    David Morley has appeared on the club's favourite personnel list, while for some reason Liam Rushton has gone of it.

    Great season to establish yourself in the Northern Premier, Nobby! I think the favoured personnel lists are a bit off still this year.

    I work. I play golf. I have a girlfriend (for the past four months). Football Manager isn't played as much as when I was a kid.

    I'm considering a charity bike ride in September as well, so will be playing even less over the Summer.

    Wow, lots of teams down there at the bottom all very close to each other. Good job to be on top of the pile, not down under it.

    Golf is one of those games noone cares about unless/until you play it. I'm still in the former camp, but could see myself picking it up one day when my knees are too shot for 5-a-side.

    My girlfriend is pretty fantastic about me playing FM to be honest, if she's watching rubbish TV then she's happy for me to play it rather than suffering in silence. Plus if there's football on she'll go out to the gym, so I can sit here in my pants watching football, playing FM, and drinking beer - plus I get a fitter girlfriend

    I can just ask very nicely Snakexe, that works for me

    Also I have now found a game she enjoys playing as well so she's more relaxed about the whole gaming thing

    When I'm with the girlfriend, if some cack comes on TV like X Factor or other reality rubbish, I get some FM time then. Otherwise it's usually a couple of nights per week.

    And not a chance I'm stopping the golf!

    Yeh I was at the game last season and security told me I had to buy a ticket for Scruffy otherwise he couldnt come in. They said the Jerkwad manager had been tightening purse strings and they didnt even get health benefits anymore. And get THIS!? I now have to pay for my parrot Polly to come to the football as well.
    Its an outrage I tell you!

    Scout finds a player who is a former Icelandic under 21 international and has spent four seasons at Liverpool and not broke into the first team before being released. He looks like he will be a quality player for me.

    I find he is willing to negotiate and pay an absolute fortune (for this level) in wages so he signs.

    He plays cack and I question if he even knows what a goal is, never mind how he scores one.

    Then he does this.


    The first time I've ever seen a 10 given since the ratings went decimal.

    I had a couple last season, in friendlies though. I'm surprised he got the 10; he only won 6 of the 7 headers he tried.

    Wow, what a performance after all that preceding carpness! I had a 10.0 once on FM10, and once so far on the current game - each of which were also strikers who bagged 5.

    Wow. I've never had a player get a 10. Hopefully you can a few more of those out of him.

    It's certainly odd that a player with his ability is so poor over so many games and then goes and puts in a performance that no one else in that division could pull off......guess it's the Leon Best effect.

    Good to see Fulham rise to the occasion of the FA Cup Semi Final.



    Tottenham are 4th in the Premier League and Fulham 10th so it's not like there is a big gap between them.

    I wouldn't call the final game of the season where we need a result away to a team chasing a playoff spot to stay up a cause for celebration. I'm cacking myself personally.

    Shh, he's World Class, and Tottenham should definitely buy him and not Carroll

    2013/4 - Newcastle Town (Northern Premier League Premier Division)
    It's where the celebration is a tense affair

    Board: Fight bravely against relegation
    Media: 18th
    Bookies: 40-1
    Season tickets: 94 (up 1)

    We have a new kit sponsorship deal for the next four years worth Ł2000 per season (no change).

    We make a poor start to the season and sit in the drop zone after a few games.
    Thankfully things improve and at Christmas we have reached midtable with Emilsson finally having started scoring goals.
    I sign a one year extension to my contract with a Ł25 per week pay rise to Ł275.
    But then our form dropped off again and we went into freefall, losing eight straight games and scoring just one in seven before briefly stopping the rot with a 4-2 win at second placed Marine.
    My 200th match in charge is the final match of the season at Stafford Rangers. A draw isn't enough and we get relegated.



    FA CUP FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND REPLAY: Malvern Town 2 Newcastle Town 0
    FA TROPHY SECOND QUALIFYING ROUND: Marine 3 Newcastle Town 0
    NORTHERN PREMIER LEAGUE CHALLENGE CUP THIRD ROUND: Newcastle Town 1 Northwich Victoria 2


    Top rating: Sean McHugh 6.92
    Top goalscorer: Liam Rushton 13 in 43 games
    Top league goalscorer: Kristján Emilsson 12 in 36 games

    PLAYER OF THE YEAR


    YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR

    You have the wrong image for the table showing. Unlucky in your relegation. Good luck for next season.

    Tough season Nobby. I'm expecting you to bounce straight back up! ;)

    ...And as for England winning the World Cup...well, I don't know what's more surprising. Winning it or beating Brazil on pens!

    I wonder when people type lol if they are actually laughing out loud. The reason being is that a lot of people have a strange sense of humour with some of the things that are "lol'd" at.

    I'm more hoping that expecting Raware!

    Our ground is less than 10% full every match.

    Florence Welch has a great voice and really makes that song. For once, a cover is better than the original.

    He is young but I got him on a free (unattached). I think he was at Wigan and got released without playing a match, but I'll have to check next time I play if I remember to do so.

    Usually get in the high 200s but have got over 400 this season, still in October.



    Interesting choice of You Tube for the preview shot.

    Happens a fair bit, but it is quite rare. I didn't know it was a cover, doy!

    Jimi Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower is far superior to Bob Dylan's original, and Dylan himself plays a slight variation of the Hendrix version now.

    Ah, but the thing is... there will only ever be one like Jimi Hendrix and that was Jimi.



    I don't think there was a drugs shortage there.

    I was wrong about Lacey, he has only had one club, Newcastle Town. He did come through the youth ranks.

    His central midfield partner, Paul Gallagher was the one released by Wigan.

    Local boy done good then!

    Jimi was something else alright, there's a few recordings/performances that give me tingles up by back, but noone does it half as often as he does. Funnily enough, another "cover better than original" scenario is - I believe - Stevie Ray Vaughan's cover of Hendrix's Little Wing.



    Certainly when I learned it on guitar, that's the one I learned.

    Incredible seeing Hendrix playing in front of a few hundred people in a field.

    To be fair... Hendrix had probably taken some 'leisurely substances' and thought it was a few thousand.

    Thanks Bob.

    Yes, I do have a game of TEW 2010 on the go. There is a thread following my game in the dynasty section of the forum if you're interested.

    Just wished I could free up Sunday nights to race in the F1 league full time, but alas, I have to earn the pennies to enable me to live.

    Hopefully he'll retire with a horrific leg injury in pre season and manure will get relegated as a consequence. ;)
