    Every. Single. Time.
    This is the way it should work:

    1. go on holiday to the 23rd of June.
    2. Save.
    3. Holiday 1 day to the 24th of June.
    4. If the desired club doesn't pop up, reload the save.
    5. Repeat 3 and/or 4.

    Finally!

    I'm proud to announce me as the manager of Chippenham. This is my Information page.

    Edit: Am I the only one having problems getting the screenshots in a decent resolution?

    I never saw Frome in 6 hours of reloading. Never saw a team below 900 rep.

    I've not seen one below 1050 yet, haven't been going 6 hours though. 5 more reloads and then I'm either making a decision with what I've got or I'm going to ask nicely for a Chippenham save as they're only 30 mins up the road from me.

    Just to add to this but I'd make sure you save at 00:00 on the 23rd or possibly some time in the morning at the most. I noticed on my save when reloading that my first attempt kept giving me the same 6 teams and I'd saved it around 19:00 on the 23rd so the game must do some hidden process for the next season late in the day on the 23rd. Once I used an earlier save to holiday again back to the 23rd the teams kept generating differently each time.

    ===

    Good luck to everyone. I think my season could be going to the formula of others with a good start followed by a bad patch. Nice to see the first season completed as well and some other Chippenham players.

    I'm in!

    In Football Manager 2011 i reached the Premier League with Bedford. I didn't manage to play more than a couple of seasons in the Premie league before the demo for 2012 was out. I will try to complete the challenge in the new version.

    I present to you the new manager of Bedford Town: Muggert

    By the way. Has anyone here had any problems using the save screenshot feature of the game? When in windowed mode the game crashes when i use it. When in full screen the saved screenshot turns green and shows a double screen?!

    Its possible, but I would assume its very very rare. Im not sure if anybody has a seen a team under 900 this thread so far.

    Thanks. I am also looking forward to it. Hopefully I can keep up the interest this time. FM11 got boring and FMi11 actually took its place.

    hehehe I'm glad someone remembers

    I haven't decided on a tactic yet, all though the layout of the tactics is pretty much the same as the last 2 years. 4-4-2 and then just change the strategy a bit. I've found setting it to 'control' works wonders

    I seem to be having a slightly easier experience than most. My board wouldn't let me have a trial day but I've managed to convince them to get a parent club... unfortunately the best we could get was Aldershot but hey, better than a kick in the jewels, right?

    This is correct. It is to accommodate the new Season Summary feature that lists which teams have been promoted to the lowest playable division (Season Summary gets generated late on the 23rd, i.e. last day before the reset). Coincidentally this is very convenient when checking who's gone up for this challenge - just go to England > Season Summary on the 24th and scroll down to "Regional Premier Divs" and there they are, all 6 promoted in a neat list.

    Well we passed the 30 entrant mark last night. For those of you who haven't noticed it, there is a table of entrants with details of where everyone is with the challenge. We still await the first promotion of the year!

    89th + 93rd minute goals in the 1st round of the FA cup give Banbury United a 3-1 victory and a 2nd round tie against League 1 Chesterfield at home. I am really enjoying this save.

    Lol. The game keeps saying I might leave Worksop at the end of the season. Wish there was a press conference option to say "I will not be leaving until this club are European Champions"!!!

    My computer crashed last night and i lost nearly a month (autosave was set at a month) i had got 9 points from 4 games and lost in the 2q of the FA cup. Replayed this morning and managed just 1 point from the league games but i won the fa cup match. Not sure which i would have wanted given a choice especially as i went out in the 4q of the fa cup.
    I am in nov and suddenly i find i can sign some decent youngsters released from the prem clubs, signed up a 17yo from Liverpool and hes worth 50k, leading L1 potential.

    "First" Hitchin record! Once the players gets aquainted and used to desired formation, its a brand new game! - Went from struggling to decent performances. Only halfway in season thu, so all can still go wrong

    Things are looking promising for my Margate side early on. We are sitting nicely in 4th position after 10 games and could possibly finish in the play-offs if things keep going like this. Salisbury are running away with it, winning 9(including thrashing us) and drawing just 1. We are scoring plenty with two good strikers but we are conceding the same amount of goals as relegation teams. God help us if Tamer Tuna(10 goals in 10) gets injured because my backup strikers are very poor.

    The dream is over, lost 3-2 i'm a bit dissapointed as we completely outplayed them. They took their chances and we didnt. However 30k in gate receipts was good.

    Tamer Tuna is a fantastic name for a player.

    A meagre 1 point from the last 9 games leaves me 6 points from safety with the half-way mark approaching. I'm lucky to have 3 shots per game and it's starting to demoralise me. Loanee's aren't interested, my strikers have 2 left feet and my midfield is old and slow. Resigning is an option at this point.

    well what a bad pre-season only played 5 friendlies, in the 1st lost by best defensive midfielder for 8 months with broken leg and then in the 4th game lost his replacement for 5 months with a broken foot. it's just my luck when no wage budget left and board all ready hassling me about wage overspend.

    so out i sent my only scout with a mission to find me a decent defensive midfielder. so off he went on his merry way.

    2 weeks later he returns with several reports but in that time i played the last friendly and 3 league games struggling through them using a defender in midfielder as that was my only choice but manged to win 2 league games with goals in the last few minutes.

    a quick glance at the scout reports and i found this gem amongst them okay costing £140 per week but as i said to the board i desperalty need him if we are to stand a chance of meeting expectations of avoiding relgation.

    i know he might be 37 but if he can fit into my tactics and play how i'm currently play i think he might me a beast and should provide that defensive cover that i so need in the midfield area as the 3 goals i've conceded so far have been with the opposition midfielders just strolling through the middle of the park with the standing defensive midfielder not covering back as he's not used to playing in that postion.

    finding youth seems to be the way to go for any half decent people, a lot of "potential" in the 16-18 yr olds apparently, mayB can either find some long term gems or at least some short term cash cows!

    After a bit of a shaky start, dropping to the bottom of the league, we're finally hitting our stride at FC United. Won 6 of the last 7 games, including beating Chester 3-1. Got through to the 1st round of the FA Cup, where I'll face Rotherham. Managed to pull in a few good Premier League youth players, such as Daniel Boateng and Ahmed Benali.

    I'm going to be here forever, never going to see Frome appear...
    Next closest is Chippenham, they haven't popped up yet either.
    Would anybody be kind enough to provide me a Chippenham save?

    Thanks in advance.

    Been doing a bit of reloading recently, about 50-odd times I think. My results are shown in the table below. I'm going to do a bit of research and re-holiday the season to see if differently relegated teams do have an impact on promoted sides.

    Chester		1500	30
    St Albans	1350	26

    Northwich	1400	22
    Stafford	1250	20
    FC United	1450	19

    Those are all the teams I've had except Chippenham which apart from Frome is the one I'm after!
    I was going to try a re-holiday season to test the same theory but I'll let you

    I'd have loved to have had a go with Frome myself. Sadly I think the chance of them appearing is fairly slim...

    Interesting to read this and some of those teams tie up a fair bit with my attempt. The only other 3 teams I had that you didn't were Hednesford (I had them quite a few times), Oxford City (4-5 times) and North Ferriby (3 times) in over 100 reloads.

    I'm going to have my first attempt at this challenge (I foresee many years of heartbreak and disappointment - if I last many years haha) and am madly reloading looking for someone below 1000 rep! Oxford City is the closest I have come so far. I also have a few saves for some 1100 rep and below teams if anyone wants them. I know there are plenty of saves kicking around the thread but if anyone wants a different one then let me know! At the moment I have:
    Bedford
    Canvey Island
    Hitchin
    Marine
    Oxford City
    Wealdstone
    Weymouth

    With more to come no doubt as I spend an afternoon reloading

    Ahahahaha. I got a pen and my striker missed it, but when another of my players went for the rebound he got fouled so I got another pen, which my striker scored on.

    Well, I think I'm finally ready to hit that continue button. Main tactic, and back-up tactic, with set pieces created for each, now in place. Request for a trials day has been accepted by the board, and I have sent out invites for about 8 pre season friendlies. Pre Season training schedules created, and I have been to the job centre to advertise for staff.

    I need players in all positions because either a) I haven't got enough cover, or b) those players I do have don't appear to be good enough!

    At work again now, so no more progress until I get home later tonight.

    Do other people find that they are apprehensive about hitting that continue button for the first time, or is it just me?

    Bury Town FC | Season 2012/13

    League Table | Squad | Transfers


    I didn't do my usual big clean out and start from scratch. I got some new coaching staff and focussed on refining a tactic and delving deeply into training for the first time in FM. I got rid of some dead wood and slowly brought in players to fill holes over the course of the season, releasing players no longer required. We had a pretty good start to the season sitting mid-table, in the lead up to xmas we went on a 9 game unbeaten streak putting us in play off contention, and in the new year we had another long streak, unfortunately it was a string of frustrating losses. We managed to turn ourselves around towards the end of the season with some wins against good opposition but we were no longer in the hunt for play off's. We didn't stick around long in either of the cups, focussing more on the league. I was impressed that my tactics worked well, and considering the lack of quality personal we definitely over performed. The team was solid defensively but lack the class in attack of the better teams.

    My best two players for the season, central defender Matthew Grieve and striker Kieran Leabon, were both already at the club when I arrived.

    Despite the comfortable league position I am planning a big clean out (Considering only two of my players are under contract for next season we could be starting from scratch, with even the best performers from last season on the chopping block. I haven't decided if I am going to stick with the 4-1-2-1-2 formation that has served me well this season, whilst it worked this year I am concerned that it is to much pressure to put on the full backs and at this level they are likely to crumble too often. There is alot to ponder over the off season for the Blue Square North Manager of the Season.

    Oh and I forgot to post my manager profile from when I first joint the club.
