    Default FA Academy Game Thread

    I have started the game with the following leagues running on a large database:

    England (League Two)
    Scotland (SPL only)
    Spain (Top two divisions)
    France (Ligue 1 only)
    Germany (Top two divisions)
    Italy (Serie A and B)
    Brazil (Serie A only)

    This is the best balance for game size and speed, as my computer is rather old. The only reason I wanted other leagues running was to prevent squads full of greys as we grow and play in Europe. It should also make more clubs approach our players, though I am hoping to hold on to all of them for at least a few years. The other leagues are also view only, to allow for faster processing.

    I also added a few England legends as coaches, to give us a decent backroom team.

    I will aim to keep the original 25 players as long as possible, and shall play them as long as they are the best 25 at the club. I shall only sell/release anyone that becomes unable to play for England by playing for another country. As we in League One, however, I can't promise everyone will stay with the club.

    Awards:
    First Goalscorer: Caleb Weah-Sebwe (v Swindon, League One)
    First U21 cap: Many
    First cap:
    First U21 goal:
    First International goal:
    Most caps:
    Most Internatioal goals:
    Most league appearences:
    Most league goals:
    First to leave:
    First to play for another country: Jim Bowman (Scotland)

    If you can think of any other interesting awards, let me know and I shall add them. I shall not be playing the friendlies at the start of the season, and will not process information from them, but I will post any interesting results from them.

    Venables unveiled as FA Academy Manager
    Today, the English Football Assocation Select, usually known as the FA Academy, revealed legendary England manager Terry Venables as their first manager. Venables is popular among all but the youngest England fans, after he guided the team to an excellent semi-final finish in Euro 96.

    His squad are said to be relishing the oppourtunity to play under such a legend, even in the relatively low profile League One.

    England U21 manager Stuart Pearce has been hired as the Assistant Manager.

    FA Academy draw Swans
    Welsh team Swansea City will provide the FA Academy with their first cup opposition. As the FA Academy play at Wembley, this home tie will unusually see a League Cup first round game played at the national stadium.

    Venables seemed pleased with the draw, a feeling shared by many of the players who consider the Swans, despite being a league above them, to be easily beatable.

    It'd be good if we could get stats pictures for every player

    You can easily take screenshots that get saved into your My Documents -> Sports Interactive -> FM11 -> Screenshots by pressing ALT + F9. Only takes about 5 minutes for 20+ players ^^

    Three Lions get off to good start (League One, Match #1, vs Swindon Town (New Wembley))

    In their first competitive game, the FA Academy showed Wiltshire's biggest team that football was a game of two halves. In the first half, the Three Lions were unable to break Swindon down, until an own goal near the break from defender Duffy. The credit as an own goal annoyed Long Tym Toon, who was in possession and was about to shoot when Duffy tackled him.

    In the second half, Weah-Sebwe scored two goals, both from long passes from midfield. Venables, disappointed with the team after 45 minutes, told his players to be a little more direct in his passes. The score easily could have been more, had Toon and Weah-Sebwe not blown other chances.

    A good start then, it feels a bit weird having 2 representatives! Just for future reference, it's Ihsaan not Ishaan

    Super-subs fire 10 man FA Academy through

    The expression about football being a game of two halves was proven once again at Wembley, during the FA Academy's first competitive cup game, in the Carling Cup against Championship Swansea.

    Despite generally dominating in the first half, the Three Lions found themselves a goal down as they went in to the break. Venables did not let himself get too angry, but nonetheless showed his disappointment, whilst drawing out a number of moves on the dressing room blackboard. FA Academy headed back out with a spring in their step. Long Tym Toon, however, had missed a number of shots and was replaced by Ihsaan Ahmed. Immediately the substitute made an impact, scoring within 4 minutes. This goal rocked Swansea, who spent the majority of the second half in their own half. The home team's rythym was ruined a little when Caleb Weah-Sebwe was taken off with an injury, Andrea Stonini taking his place. Venables also took off Alex Seddon, who had taken a knock, bringing Thor Vanilla on in his place. It was only when Jamie Reynolds got himself a second yellow, which some deem to be harsh, that the Swans looked close to getting another goal.

    In extra time, both teams played nervously, not helped by the fact that many were tired. It was towards the end of the first half of extra time that the deadlock was again broken, as Andrea Stonini ran onto Ihsaan Ahmed's pass. Virtually straight away, Ahmed scored his second, a brilliant solo effort including a run from his own half.

    The second half of extra time brought no further action, with both teams exhausted.

    FA Academy 3 (Ahmed 2, Stonini) Swansea 1 (Moore)
    Team:
    1 James David G
    13 James Sheriff RB
    2 Michael Weird LB
    5 Jamie Reynolds CB (Capt.)
    6 Alex Seddon CB
    17 Ahmed Ihsaan RM
    18 Aiden Lfc LM
    26 Andre Worth CM
    16 Daniel Russell CM
    8 Caleb Weah-Sebwe ST
    9 Long Tym Toon ST
    Subs:

    Press Conference
    The Football League Paper: Has the performance by Ihsaan Ahmed granted him a position in the first team?
    El Tel: I won't say anything at this stage, but things will be changed around a little following this game.

    Trotters to face Venables' FA Academy

    FA Academy have been handed another home draw in the League Cup, this time against Premiership side Bolton Wanderers. The Three Lions fans are said to be eagerly anticipating this clash, though Venables is said to not be confident of victory at this stage.

    Great to see I got my first game under my belt at RB, well I did put as a secondary position after all.
    Rating of 8 after coming on as a sub is very impressive.

    I actually re-jigged the defence to get four green dots, think you played as CB.

    Also remember that you played the whole game, virtually.

    Three Lions humiliate woeful Bolton

    Bolton arrived at Wembley confident, expecting an easy victory against a League One side. From the kick off they surged forward confidently, but were checked.

    Play was even for the first 20 minutes, both sides going close, though FA Academy were playing a little nervously against larger opposition. It was then that Aiden Lfc crossed the ball in, which was handled poorly. So poorly, in fact, that it ended up in the back of the net, Paillot being credited with the own goal.

    After the first goal, the FA Academy looked to be in the driving seat. By half time King Tikki-Man added a second, putting the team well in command. In the second half, Wanderers imploded, with Ihsaan Ahmed, Aiden Lfc and Andrea Stonini making it five. Though the last ten minutes were goalless, most Bolton fans were already halfway to the M1, having left in their dozens when the third goal was scored.

    Citizens dread FA Academy draw

    Roberto Mancini is said to be dreading his team's trip to Wembley after Manchester City were drawn away to the FA Academy in the Carling Cup today. After the short work that had been made of fellow Lancastrians Bolton, the blue half of Manchester will be hoping that the strength of their team will prove enough to stop the Three Lions in their tracks.

    Finally glad to make my debut, must have another 10 years at the top if I'm considered a young player

    Out of the team for the last game, hopefully it's only temporary and I can tear Man City apart...

    Sheriff wins player of the month
    James Sheriff has been the first FA Academy player to win an award, earning the League One player of the month award. His solid performances at the back are said to be a large part of why the English Football Association Select have not yet conceded any league goals. Suprisingly, no other players from the side featured in either the regular or youth award.

    Terry Venables was also awarded the manager of the month award.

    BREAKING NEWS: Bowman to leave FA Academy
    In an interview today, Terry Venables confirmed that Jim Bowman would be leaving the FA Academy.

    'The rules of the club quite clearly state that a player must be eligible to play for England.' Venables began. 'Sadly, Jim Bowman has appeared in a full international for Scotland, rendering him unable to continue to play first team football with us.'

    Venables went on to state that Bowman would be sold as soon as possible, but would not pull on the number 31 shirt for the club again.

    Huddersfield 3 (Armfield pen, Kay, Lee) FA Academy 3 (Lfc, Fish, Weah-Sebwe) - League One match #5, att: 15,457

    FA Academy were saved from a defeat only in the 87th minute by Caleb Weah-Sebwe's strike. This performance was the poorest so far exibited, and may lead to a run of bad form. Venables is said to be considering his options.

    FA Academy 7 (Seddon, Reynolds, Broomes og, Kesina, Ahmed 2, Weah-Sebwe) Tranmere 0 - League One match #6, att: 17,978

    Long Tym Toon picked up a dislocated shoulder during the match, ruling him out for 7 weeks. He was unlucky in that the injury coincided with the own goal, perhaps the second time he was harshly not credited with a goal. The team, however, picked themselves up to destroy Tranmere.

    Remember that I am rounding as I hate FM11's '10.0 out of 10' rating system. Still, Seddon has been consistant at the back and teams up well with Reynolds in the middle. You two are looking good to replace Rio and JT.

    Being over 30 he wasn't going to really figure for England so took the opportunity to play for Scotland, has he been sold yet? or is he just playing with himself in a dark room on matchdays?

    I just bunged him in the reserves. He then got a nasty injury in training, ruling him out for 3+ months. Karma's a bitch!

    Citizens embarassed by plucky FA Academy

    Wembley was again the site of a cup giant killing tonight as Manchester City were defeated 3-0 by the FA Academy. It was only thanks to Joe Hart, arguably City's best player on the day, who kept the score down as the Three Lions dominated from start to finish. It wasn't until the 28th minute that the deadlock was broken, Darren Russell hitting a brilliant freekick from just outside the area. Alex Seddon followed up soon after with one of his trademark headers. Play then reverted to Hart making save after save, though James David was worked on several occasions himself, proving equal to City's attempts on goal. It looked like it was going to be 2-0 until Caleb Weah-Sebwe slotted home in the 87th minute.

    I've hit a big of a snag in that the fecking Under 19s called up half the squad. This leaves me with only a few 'proper' Academy players and the newgens the game put in the U18s to make up the numbers - they are crap.

    Now I wish we had the 'ask for postponement' button from CM 01-02.
