    Not a bad season for you.

    Brooks had a great one!

    I presume there is a post deleted from that person who had a rant in Nep's thread that he gravedug?

    Better off I don't know what he said I feel.

    Yes. It was less offensive than it was infantile. Should probably leave it at that, mods have dealt with it.

    Yes, that's the general impression I get of his posting if it is the person I am thinking of.

    Anyway, enough of that. On with the thread... when it becomes time to update again.

    2031/32 - Newcastle Town (League One)
    It's where it goes horribly, horribly wrong

    Board: Respectable league position
    Media: 11th
    Bookies: 25-1
    Season tickets: 1264 (up 5)

    After last season, Paul Gallagher gets appointed as my new Assistant Manager.
    A new kit sponsor is signed for the next three seasons worth £96,540 per season (up £18,120)
    I also smash my record signing, splashing out half a million on the young and gigantic Jason Gray from Coventry, who starred on loan at Conference North outfit Nuneaton last season and came highly recommended by my scout.
    We lose our first three games before we start playing some decent football.
    That doesn't last though as we go on another losing run and sink to the bottom.
    By half way we are still in the bottom four and face a long, hard battle.
    My 1200th game in charge was a 3-2 win over Brentford in front of only 3329 fans which lifts us off the bottom of the table.
    With then games left we are bottom again and nine points from safety.
    With three games left we are relegated.


    Edit: Damn, I missed the top off instead of the bottom. Bradford City won the league with Leyton Orient second.

    FA CUP THIRD ROUND: Newcastle Town 1 Plymouth Argyle 4
    LEAGUE CUP FIRST ROUND: FC Halifax Town 2 Newcastle Town 1
    JOHNSTONE'S PAINT TROPHY NORTH SECOND ROUND: Crewe Alexandra 1 Newcastle Town 0

    Top rating: Jӧrg Müller 7.12
    Top goalscorer: Jӧrg Müller 21 in 38 games
    Top league goalscorer: Jӧrg Müller 19 in 33 games

    PLAYER OF THE YEAR


    YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR



    So in our seventh season in League One, we drop down to League Two and will have to make some financial cuts.

    BROOKS WATCH



    Manchester United dropped off again, though did qualify for the Europa League courtesy of reaching the FA Cup Final. Brooks will be in England's Euro 2032 squad.

    I expect a lot of dodgy refereeing decisions went against you this season.

    Boooo.

    Next season's a crucial one I think - if you can recover your momentum and bounce straight back up it could be a good thing for the club. Seems like things just got a bit stale, perhaps relegation is the shakeup you need.

    Tough beat in taking a relegation hit, but hopefully you can hold onto players and bounce immediately back.

    I get the feeling if we have a great season back in League Two, it will return all the confidence that has been lost in the relegation season.

    I lost three players of note, two through choice and one who left on a Bosman. Got rid of a couple of other fringe players too. I still got the core with a couple of others added too. A couple of other former fringe players have stepped up in the early weeks of the season. I'll report at the end of the season how it all goes.

    Ouch. Must be frustrating to have such a long term career then find yourself going a step back the ranks. Time to test your side's bouncebackability.

    Tough luck with the relegation- you should be more than handy in League Two though.

    What do you think of your chances of coming straight back up, Nobby? What sort of shape is the squad in and will you have to lose a few players?

    Very frustrating. Hopefully we will go straight back up like the other time we got relegated.

    I lost three players, one of whom was a bit disruptive anyway. I'm quietly confident of going straight back up.

    2032/33 - Newcastle Town (League Two)
    It's where we make up for last season

    Board: Win promotion
    Media: 2nd
    Bookies: 7-4
    Season tickets: 1074 (down 190)
    Club value: £1,100,000

    I sign a one year contract extension (two years left on contract) on £850 per week (down £250).
    A decent start is spoiled by a home defeat to Gateshead but it's only a blip as we chase free scoring Oxford United (who scored 24 in their opening 5 games). A win at Oxford puts us top after 13 games.
    Come halfway and it's a two horse race as Oxford and ourselves break 50 points.
    In the new year I sign another new contract on the same wage, but for a further two and a half years to 2037.
    Revenge at Gateshead (4-0) puts us 7 points clear of Oxford and a massive 21 of 4th placed Doncaster with 17 games to play.
    A 4-1 win against Oxford all but seals it in early March. Promotion is sealed with 8 games to play and the title with 3 to play.
    Our only other defeat all season came at Wrexham.


    23. Wrexham 40 points
    24. Rochdale 33 points

    FA CUP FIRST ROUND: Cambridge United 3 Newcastle Town 0
    LEAGUE CUP SECOND ROUND: Newcastle Town 1 Fulham 5
    JOHNSTONE'S PAINT TROPHY NORTH SECOND ROUND: Chesterfield 1p Newcastle Town 1

    Top rating: Nikolas Stavrou 7.55
    Top goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 41 in 44 games
    Top league goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 41 in 42 games

    PLAYER OF THE YEAR

    BROOKS WATCH



    Another quality season by England's best player but the season was disappointing for Manchester United who didn't challenge for any trophies.

    Great season, Nobby! Absolutely tore it up - would not be surprised to see another promotion challenge next year.

    Thanks gents. It was comfortably my most dominant season in any season on any version of the game, and FM2012 and CM Italia are the only ones I haven't played.

    An immediate promotion was exactly what you needed . The longer you lingered around League Two, the more difficult you'd find it to get back into League One. Now to push on and get back to where you were 7 years ago.

    Thank you chaps.

    The only downside to such a dominating campaign, bigger clubs are sniffing around half of my players. How next season goes depends on how many we can keep.

    Things are moving a little slower now as I have started a new job recently which sees me working more hours. I am still playing now and again though.

    2033/34 - Newcastle Town (League One)
    It's where we repeat what happened before

    Board: Mid table (increased from avoid relegation)
    Media: 20th
    Bookies: 25-1
    Season tickets: 1371 (up 297) £443,395
    Club value: £1,200,000

    Jason Gray is sold by my chairman to Swindon Town for £750,000
    We enjoy a decent start, though not as good as Chesterfield who win their first eight games.
    A 7-1 thumping of Bradford City in October shows we are contenders. Eight players are named in team of the week on the back of that game!
    A 4-0 win in heavy snow at Reading in early December gives me great hope and some expectation.
    The board then sell Trevor Shaw to Charlton for £400,000 in January. Luke Elford and Adam Taylor agree Bosman moves. Three quarters of my first choice back four will have left before next season. Some serious rebuilding is required. Also, backup Leon McCoy will retire.
    We maintain our form and look good for the playoffs.
    However a shaky finish, only one point from our final three games see us miss out.


    23. Doncaster Rovers 38 points
    24. Barnsley 27 points

    FA CUP THIRD ROUND: Blackburn Rovers 6 Newcastle Town 0
    LEAGUE CUP SECOND ROUND: Newcastle Town 1 Burnley 2
    JOHNSTONE'S PAINT TROPHY NORTH SEMI FINAL: Gateshead 2 Newcastle Town 1

    Top rating: Nikolas Stavrou 7.31
    Top goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 37 in 49 games
    Top league goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 32 in 40 games

    What I love about this thread is that I can miss it for 3 months then not take long to catch up.

    Great job back up on League 1 nearly making the playoffs. Surely reaching them, and promotion to the Championship, won't be too far off in the future.

    Good position in League One. Just noticed you had a player named Luke Elford...caught my eye cause I was in school for grades 1-12 with a guy with the same name! Never seen that happen before

    Unlucky to miss out on the playoffs, Nobby. Are you going to be getting FM13? Or carrying on with this?

    Thanks Noikeee. Hopefully the Championship is soon. And yes, it takes me a while to play!

    Thanks AK.

    I'm getting FM13 for the classic mode as it's rare I get a long session these days. I tend to get one a week, two if I'm lucky. When I get 2+ hours available it's this time I play FM. I'm getting FM13 for the classic mode to allow me to play a career with the much faster play and will use smaller amounts of available time to play classic. So this save will keep going for a while, at a similar pace it is now alongside one on FM13 classic.

    Unless I win the lottery when everything will change.

    Yeah, I was chuffed. I raised the board expectation (which I rarely do) and exceeded what I raised it to. Well chuffed.

    2034/35 - Newcastle Town (League One)
    It's where we bang on the door

    Board: Top half finish (increased in the new year from respectable position)
    Media: 10th
    Bookies: 33-1
    Season tickets: 1438 (up 67) £475,258
    Club value: £1,300,000
    New kit sponsor: 1 year, £72,610 (down £23,840)
    New stadium sponsor: 5 years, £144,000 per year (down £16,000)

    We enjoy a very good start, unbeaten in the first eight games.
    October was poor though and November and December were little better.
    In the New Year, things picked back up again. We maintain consistent form and challenge for the playoffs.
    The playoffs are secured with one to go, but a win in our last game would see us promoted depending on Ipswich and Chesterfield's results. In injury time, we have a throw in, and the result is a shot narrowly over the bar. As it was, Ipswich got a point anyway and had we scored from the throw in, we would have missed out by one goal.
    In the playoffs, we play Blackpool in the semi finals. A draw at Bloomfield Road sets us up in front of a capacity crowd at Newcastle Town Stadium. Nathan Hart is sent off for two yellows and then Daniel McKenzie gets injured with us using all three subs, leaving us to play extra time with only nine men. Not only do we keep Blackpool at bay, we nearly score ourselves but the penalty shoot out comes. We score once and miss out in playoffs again. Bugger.


    23. Preston North End 44 points
    24. Grimsby Town 37 points

    FA CUP SECOND ROUND: Newcastle Town 0 Blackpool 1
    LEAGUE CUP SECOND ROUND: Newcastle Town 0 West Bromwich Albion 4
    JOHNSTONE'S PAINT TROPHY NORTH SECOND ROUND: Macclesfield Town 0p Newcastle Town 0

    Top rating: Nikolas Stavrou 7.25
    Top goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 39 in 53 games
    Top league goalscorer: Nikolas Stavrou 36 in 48 games (top league scorer)

    BROOKS WATCH



    Manchester United won the Champions League as Brooks made a significant contribution again and also passed 100 goals for England (though he did this after this shot was taken).

    Oh dear, that's gutting, I hate losing promotion playoffs, makes things a hell of a lot sweeter when you do manage to go up though. It was a great season though, another step forward.

    With every passing season this becomes more and more an epic story, you should play this until you win the Champions League, may take you until FM16 is released though.

    Gary Neville, England manager!

    Penalty shootouts suck. Bad luck

    I've been in playoffs six times in this save and gone up twice, so it's not too bad a record.

    Though I think I'll be dead before I reach the Champions League!

    Also how we got to the shootout, so close to reaching the final.

    And yes, Neville the England manager. He's getting on though.
