    Good job Lanthal. Iroha looks bloody awesome for BSN/BSS. Is he dual nationality?

    GreyedOutMan - good to see you survived relegation and glad to help with Tank - hes going to be my best player this season i think.
    As someone mentioned the ex prem youth players will often sign for you oct onwards - also check in may time for any that wouldn't sign as i found in previous versions this is when some players would finally cut there losses and sign for you.

    He certainly is awesome. I couldn't believe my eyes when he came up in a striker search. My strikers weren't doing the job so I went looking and holy crap what a find! And yes, he is dual nationality.

    Yes but as Worksop were managerless, I created my manager unemployed and applied for the job. Small thing but very satisfying.

    10 end of season posts now, still awaiting our first promotion. Who will win the race?!

    By the way, how awesome is the new "scouting pool" feature? Seriously helps when looking for players!

    Just had the first batch of youths - none of them really appear very good even though 2 are rated at 4 stars potential. Signed up those who were 2.5 stars and will get rid of the rest, at least i won't have total rubbish hanging around for years now.

    Yes, this is what I did, except instead of selecting my team, I added myself unemployed and applied for the job.

    I assume there's no breach of rules starting unemployed and getting yourself hired, rather than simply ousting the current manager?

    As GreyedOutMan says, it feels pretty good to get the job on merit

    Question: season 1, Hitchin played in BSN - now in season 2, they are playing in BSS?

    If that continues, does that mean that eventually in PRM (should i get that far) they would play in Germany in season 2?

    Hastings Utd - reddevil4ever - Blue Square Bet South - Season 2012-13

    Well what a season with us only ensuring staying in the league with 5 games to spare. This was due to losing best def mid for 8 months and right back for 5 months in pre-season, the right back then got injured for another 3 months in training straight after recovering from 1st injury.

    It took nearly 25 games before the team gelled and started to play how i want them to, i put this down to the fact of trying out several players in the 2 positions i had injuries in till i found the right ones for the role.

    Squad Table Graph Finances Transfers1 Transfers2 Best Player

    plan for next season

    1) to lower wage spend to keep finances in check by letting players nearing end of contract on high wages leave if not likely to make 1st team
    2) improve squad depth by replacing players that leave due to rule above with youth players on low wages that make the grade
    3) try to reach playoffs

    if anyone wants to follow my progress on twitter @reddevil4ever1

    Managed to secure the BSN championship with two games to go, despite a rather dodgy run of form towards the end. Luckily FC United and Halifax failed to capitalise.

    Well done Gypsum. I always enjoy reading about people's exploits in dafuge's challenge, but seeing as the team I support is in the BSS, I can never be bothered. Will be watching though

    I'm asking because you played a lot of friendlies against bigger clubs and lost every single one of them. Personally I like to use the last couple of friendlies against similar or smaller clubs to give the team a chance to get into the winning mentality.
    Although I must admit that it's not working for me this time as results are sketchy at the least, but a part of that may be recruiting too many players at the start of the season and missing out on potential gems who would have been willing to join me later on during the season because I'm at or pretty close to the top of my wage budget.

    I've been at this an hour now, trying to get Whitby or any team that is below 1000.

    The rarest teams I have come across have been Marine and Cambridge City.

    Well done on promotion Gypsum!

    ===

    If pre-season friendlies can be used as any kind of measure for how your season will go I think I'm going to be ok this season.

    I have Kendal Town and Chesham saves if you're interested. They're from different holiday saves than what I'm using myself so your game will still be unique.

    To sign a player, you must be able to scout them, this doesn't mean you have to, just he must be accessible to your scouts. If you have a foreign player on a free transfer who is willing to come on trial, you do not need to be able to scout them, as long as you have them at the club on trial so you can get a coach report on him. If an agent offers you a player, you can sign him without scouting him.
    Hi all, new to this challenge.. can any1 let me know what does the above mean?? still trying to re-load my games for team hehe

    It means you can't sign a player 'blind'. He needs to either be in your scouting range, willing to come on trial or offered to you by an agent.

    Basically in order to sign a player he needs to either be accessible to your scouts, have accepted a trial period with you (so that he is at your club, on trial), or be offered to you by an agent.

    Chesham - Blue Square South - 2013/14



    League Table

    Fixtures

    Finances - 145k gate receipts and 25k bonus from the FAT run really helped us. Only ran 70k into debt this season. "only"

    We didn't do too badly. Really need to show some form though and the FAT run really hurt us with fixture congestion towards the end of the season, otherwise I could have seen us 8-9th easily. Next season will be interesting.




    Haha this was amazing this season. We really struggled against Forest Green and only snuck away with it at the last second, but I think Eastwood played their B team in the first round of the Semi. We scored 3 goals in the first 20 and I parked the bus.

    The final was a bit daunting and we were in front of over 22 thousand people at Wembley, against a team from a higher division who were doing well. The boys didn't flinch though and took it to the big kids giving them a run for their money. Dover had all the posession but couldn't put us away. Nichols was taking great shots and barely missing leading to some fingernail biting from the coach.
    In extra time, Kris Bright took the game for them easily, scoring two quick goals in the space of five minutes and dashing our hopes. My dreams of a Brisbane Roar-esque Grand Final Miracle were not to be however and they took the trophy, but the team had a great experience. We want to be back next year to fight again.



    We did well to get to the 4th qual round, but the replays hurt us

    Squad - Getting better but still average. Lack consistency and depth. Leaky defence is still an issue


    Key Player Profiles

    Aaron Mulligan - Another Irish gem who keeps my backfield in check. Hecker and Mulligan are the only rocks in a very shaky back 4 at the moment and saved many a goal this season.

    Jack Lyons - Fantastic striker I picked up. Not the greatest stats, but does well for this level.

    Player of the Season

    Paul Hecker - This kid is amazing. He has just turned 18 and is easily the best player in my squad. His physical attributes are fantastic for this level and with some good training, his skill will develop over time.


    Up and Comers

    Marcus Stephens - Playing well in the kids team and showing some good stats for a 16 year old. Will be one to watch as he develops.


    Transfers - reshaped the team again and following form I picked a lot of bad apples as well as good ones. Hecker and Seidi were the two gems, with Cox and Hope ones to look out for in the future.

    Next Season

    Keep building on the squad
    Get a playoff spot



    Tactics

    I was running a 3-2-2-3 which i usually use in other games with a slow passing game. It needs players with better skills to really be able to work though. About halfway through this season I changed back to a bog standard 442 and its done wonders. Simple football does well at this level

    These are the six promoted teams:

    Bradford PA
    Chester
    St. Albans
    Margate
    Tooting and Mitcham
    Weymouth

    Hendon FC January 2013 Update

    League Table Much better than I expected, don't think it will last though.

    FA Cup Got a good run going but got battered by Scunthorpe in Round 1

    FA Trophy Still in it right now, got a tough match against Blyth coming up.

    Transfers 1
    Transfers 2 Too much to fit one one page! Got a little indecisive with transfers and have released players I just bought alot. And now you can see what damage has been done!

    Finances Starting to drop into the red.

    Star Player:

    Inih Effiong Scoring for fun at the moment. His contract runs out at the end of the season though and my wage budget doesn't help!

    Gypsum - just noticed that the screenie isnt from the end of the season so I assume an update is coming which is why I have updated the table but not included your promotion. Will do as soon as your end of season post arrives. Well done on getting the first promotion of the year!

    Is it a different link to the one earlier in the thread? As I'm not a huge fan of the style of those.

    Just spent an hour clearing out and signing players and staff and it crashes, I hope this isn't a sign of things to come, oh well back to the start again.

    Gypsum's Worksop Town - Blue square North - 2012/13

    League position: 1st / Position chart - After my squad gelled we enjoyed a great run of form. We hit the rocks late on as injuries mounted and our defence crumbled, but we still held on to finish 10 points clear.

    Transfers

    Finances

    General squad info;

    Star players:
    1- Liam Reffin - A solid defender and a great addition for attacking corners.
    2- Victor Zapata-Caicedo - Ex-Spurs striker, good speed and ability for this level.
    3- Sam Duncum - A bit of a surprise performer from the original Worksop squad. Bagged 17 goals as a wide striker.

    Top scorer: Luke Beckett (22 goals) - Another of the original Worksop squad, a solid striker at this level, although a touch slow for my tactics.

    Notable mentions: Colin Patrick O'Brien - Signed on a free from Irish club Rockmount in the January transfer window (earning my scout a contract extension!), should be a good player in the BSP.

    Other information: A new 6255 capacity stadium has been announced after only one season! A bit of a surprise after the long wait on previous FMs.

    On this months board confidence the fans were concerned that the football played has been less than exciting. Last 5 results 1-1, 0-1, 2-1, 2-3, 2-1.
    2nd and last results at home, just no pleasing some people.

    GreyedOutMan - I have to ask. I saw your post where you'd lost 14 games or so on the trot. I noticed that you'd played 10 friendlies; what's up with that? I get bored after 4/5 and have to start the season.

    The extra cash is useful, plus you get to give trialists a game to see if they're any good...

    Margate FC - Blue Square South - Season 1 - 2012/13


    Blue Square South - 8th - Fixtures 1 - Fixtures 2

    FA Cup - 4th Qualifying Round

    FA Trophy - 3rd Round

    A good solid season sees us finish in 8th place, although we bounced between 7th and 13th all season. We generally struggled to find any sort of consistent form, not helped by the poor quality of the rightbacks, right wings and the lack of depth in the centerback. The end of the season was very welcome, especially this news. We're actually groundsharing in a stadium that is larger than our stadium .

    The FA Cup was disappointing. Let's not go there.

    We had a little run in the FA trophy, ended abruptly by Havant and Waterlooville.

    Transfers

    Mainly young centerbacks and a few strikers.

    Key Players

    Kwesi Appiah - Our top scorer, and absolutely vital for us. Bit of a scare when he wouldn't sign a new contract, but it got sorted and now will be needed to help push up the table next season

    Jon Honey - Started slowly but has grown into a solid centerback who will also be necessary next season

    Matt Bodkin - A brilliant player for us, who managed to break his leg halfway through the season. Let's hope he comes back to full form.

    Next Season

    A couple of centerbacks, a solid rightback and a new right winger are on the agenda, for what could hopefully be a successful second season. the squads a year older and more experienced, so let's hope next season will be a good'un.

    I don't know really, I stuck to the tactics and methods which worked for me on FM11! Got some decent signings which helped.

    A note about the LEADERBOARD. As there's masses of info on it, it's best viewed with the page zoomed to 90% - this way you can see all the information on one line per player.

    Also, if anyone feels like checking my figures from time to time I would appreciate it. I do it quite a lot to make sure I have all the updates in the right place but it takes quite a while so if anyone can let me know whenever they get a chance that all the numbers add up and I havent missed any updates from before the last post I used, that would be good. Obviously, if there are more posts after the last update on the bottom of the table, that's just because I havent got round to doing that yet!

    Damn, I reached the 2nd round of the FA Cup and after holding Salisbury to a tie I had a rematch at my stadium. I was 0-1 down and the clock was ticking, then my local super talent, Eddie Cook came up with this beauty! Sadly, we lost on pens in the end.

    Evening all. I've just got home from work and loaded up FM and to my horror I have no save game data!! I was in Feb and sitting comfortably in 2nd place. My Step-Brother has admitted that he was trying to have a go and he seems to have deleted my save! So here I am having to holiday again! Unbelieveable :mad:

    End of Jan update - 2012/13

    League Table

    Pretty solid start, but frustratingly inconsistent. Have looked excellent at times and very poor at others, but given I'm trying to play a fluid, passing style of football it's not surprising. Have had a few chances to jump into the playoff spots without success, but I'm staying around about. On FM11 I used to slump in February every season without fail, so will be interesting to see if I can stay in playoff contention down the stretch. A healthy goal difference is a positive.

    My star man has been Alex Rhodes. I don't know if anyone remembers him from his Brentford days but he used to be a lethal lower league player back in FM06 and FM07. His attributes are pretty average now but he's been banging them in from everywhere, playing mainly off a left wing.

    Default Grace takes up hotseat at local club

    Bedford Town have today officially annouced rookie manager Grace to take over their first season back in the BSN. Grace was said to be in talks with a number of more high profile clubs including Chester and FC Utd but chose his local team so he could stay at home and walk the dog when needed. Others in consideration included Lowestoft, Lewes and Tooting and Mitcham so Grace has undertaken the hardest challenge of the 6 promoted sides.

    Margate | Blue Square South | 2012/2013 | 7th




    League

    Final Position
    League player stats


    Key Players

    Nick Farqurharson
    Tamer Tuna
    Ben Davisson


    Summary

    A great first season where we managed to finish just outside the playoffs. While being a great season it was also very hard at the end where we missed out on the last playoff space when we blew it at home to mid-table Boreham Wood who pretty much turned us over.

    We scored and conceded a stupid amount of goals despite having players capable of defending much better but that's something I'll address going into next season by getting a new keeper and two full backs, maybe even a centre back.

    Finances are poor after a lousy cup run but that's to be expected at this stage.

    All in all it's been a very good season. Looking forward to pushing for promotion next season.

    Hendon FC 2012/13 Season

    League Table Absolutely ecstatic about this. I was lucky to finish 1st because I lost 5-1 on the last day, but Farnborough luckily lost aswell

    FA Cup

    FA Trophy


    Finances
    Not good. About 100k in debt and now have a loan fee to pay off...

    ...why? Because of this!

    Star Players:

    Inih Effiong Top scorer, had a drought near the end but got back on track again.


    Kyle Asante
    Loanee from AFC Wimbledon, started badly but then started scoring. His contract runs out in the summer so I am hoping to pick him up.

    Also, doesn't look good for my favourite team.

    Next Season

    With a nice promotion in the first season, I am hoping to establish myself as a Conference side and possibly push for a playoff spot. A cup run would be nice too!

    Same as me with that new stadium, unfortunately I got knocked out the F.A Cup early so no extra income for me!

    Happy with the pre-season. We are hard to break down and try to strike on the counter.

    Here's hoping it'll actually work against tougher league opposition.

    had a good run but now struggling again, I think I need to release some fringe players to get a decent wage budget for a decent signing

    Positions

    FA Cup - 4th QRd
    FA Trophy - 3rd QRd replay

    Started the league indifferently but soon got a good run going to get upto 5th after halfway. A very poor run after xmas left me in midtable where i pretty much sat for the rest of the season. Only 9 clean sheets in total and 3 after xmas showed where the main problems lay.
    No real progress in the cups.

    Squad

    Transfers

    My best player was Tank, when he was missing the other defenders performances stunk the place out, when he was there they played much better.
    Beckett did well at the start of the season as did Martins in parts but my best striker was Lyons who took 10 games to get off the mark but found the target consistantly until the last ten games when he was dire in most matches.

    Pretty solid start, but frustratingly inconsistent. Have looked excellent at times and very poor at others, but given I'm trying to play a fluid, passing style of football it's not surprising. Have had a few chances to jump into the playoff spots without success, but I'm staying around about. On FM11 I used to slump in February every season without fail, so will be interesting to see if I can stay in playoff contention down the stretch. A healthy goal difference is a positive.

    My star man has been Alex Rhodes. I don't know if anyone remembers him from his Brentford days but he used to be a lethal lower league player back in FM06 and FM07. His attributes are pretty average now but he's been banging them in from everywhere, playing mainly off a left wing.
    Rhodes was a legend on 07 for me. 07 was when enjoyed some of my best saves think I got a save saved on one of my old computers
