    Default FM2012: CSE United


    CSE UNITED F.C.


    CSE United are recruiting players to join them in their upcoming League 2 season. The club are looking for 20 players to join the club as it embarks upon it's first season in the nPower Football League looking to mount a promotion push at the first attempt. With a new ground being built, "The Forum", and a new manager to be appointed soon, we are welcoming applications from any players who wish to be considered for a place in our squad for the 2011-2012 squad. If you wish to be considered, please fill out the following form.

    Thanks
    Chip Butty (Chairman)


    Player Name:
    Nationality:
    Position:
    League 2 player similar to:
    Please note that the League 2 player you decide you are similar to will be used to generate your player in the game. If you are applying to be a goalkeeper, make sure you select a goalkeeper. If you are applying to be a defender, make sure you choose a defender etc ... I will edit that player and then transfer you to Barnet who will be edited to become CSE United in the game. One of the attributes that will be edited is your potential which will be randomly generated between 150 and 200, your determination will be set to 20 and a future transfer will be set to 2035 to ensure you stay at CSE United for your entire career. The club's coaching facilities will be edited to be impressive as well. The aim is that the squad will help the club move through the divisions and hopefully into the Premier League pretty quickly without the need to sign many outsiders.

    This list below will be edited to show the players who sign up to be a part of CSE United. Please look at the positions available and choose a vacant spot. Bear in mind I may not have edited it completely. Make sure the League 2 player you choose can play the position you take. Also, please make sure your chosen player is a League 2 player and he should not be on loan from another team (unless they are in League 2). I won't be checking this till all spaces are full so you run the risk of losing your place if you don't select this player correctly. If you don't know any League 2 players, load up FM12 and have a look!


    GK: Edoardo Lorenzo (ejldude) *Romain Larrieu
    GK: Matt Swain (matts) *Scott Shearer

    RB: Omar Brown (Animosama) *Paul Caddis
    LB: Tin Tin Tin (sebs) *Kevin Nicholson
    CB: Dench Frimpong (toonbalmy87) *Mark Ellis
    CB: Kalju Väljas (bergtaur) *Chris Barker
    DF: Draco Longbottom (bambi holt) *Graham Coughlan
    DF: Josh Wilson (Plobdork) *Rob Kozluk

    RW: Charles Beams (charlesbeams) *Sergio Torres
    LW: Yaqub Al-Billionairy (letissierandhenryaregreat) *Jean-Paul Kalala
    CM: Austin Hodge (austinho) *Damien Johnson
    CM: Elliot van Barthold (TWFC) *Simon Ferry
    MF: Seamus O'Bowman (jimbowmanuk) *Lee Minshull
    MF: Bastian Schweinstiga (ssestig) *Ashley Westwood

    ST: Geraint Alacarde (larxus) * Ben Williamson
    ST: Mike Nevo (Tactic Master) * James Constable
    ST: Marcus van der Cook (cookie15) *Darryl Duffy
    ST: Jake Stothard (stothy) *Lukas Magera

    Some positions are specific, i.e. RB (right back), others are more general, i.e. MF (midfielder) - for the more general spots, you just choose somebody who would be classed that way. Doesn't need to be a specific position though, i.e. a MF could be a winger, a defensive midfielder, a creative attacking midfielder, a utility midfielder who can play different midfield positions etc ...

    Mate, you need to choose one - O'Kane or Johnson. If you don't know one, load up FM12 and have a little look!

    Is Sergio Torres at Crawley? Or Stevenage? Or Wycombe? I can't remember. If he is at Crawley, you're fine. Might want to check to make sure you get your place.

    EDIT: Yep, Crawley. He's fine.

    He is a M R, M C, AM RLC on the game so it'd work. When I edit him, I will change his position to AM R anyway. It's more for that stats that you are selecting him. His age will also be edited to move him down to 18 years old.

    I chose my guy due to his Genie Scout rating at the start of the game and being the most expensive player in L2 (on sale value)

    For me, Ben Williamson scored 57 goals in 102 apps in my save for my team.. would have been more if not for the injuries which always seem to happen when he's in hot form..

    Thats a nice goal to game ratio I preffered to look at the AI players though, because it seems a lot easier to get players to play better with your own team. Take Messi for example, you would never see the AI get him to score 82 goals in a season like I did

    Little girl was born on January 9th - she's the one that has been keeping me busy. Lots of decorating and making furniture and shopping and doctors and hospitals for the past few months. She's settling into a little bit of a routine now so I've got some free time again. That's why this will be a little less detailed though.

    I think he'll be a magic player won't he? Might prefer to play for Bradford City though ... Or Plymouth Argyle in Draco's case?

    I'm definitely going to make you Rob Kozluk, what a leg-end. Never any good but a leg-end!

    Didn't expect to fill the sign up that quick. Need to edit the database next, then I'll get started. No promises over time, it'll be when I get to it.

    It's got to be Paolo Di Canio, great pedigree with top clubs, and a willingness to help guide a team up the leagues.

    Sergey Gurenko has the potential to be an amazing manager and he's only 38. He should definitely be the manager of CSE United

    OK, the choices are:

    Paolo Di Canio: The Italian is currently the manager of League 2 Swindon Town (yet to play a game though) and has a tremendous pedigree in the game with spells at Celtic, Juventus, Napoli and Lazio to his name. He also spent time as the main man with West Ham United in the Premier League and a season with Sheffield Wednesday although that shouldn't be held against him considering the way he left the Owls. CSE United would signal his early development as a manager and it appears to be a certainty that the Italian will be an excellent manager - however, he could be tempted to leave CSE United should they begin to do well.

    Alan Shearer: Another inexperienced name in the frame is former England international striker and BBC pundit, Alan Shearer. The former Southampton, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United legend won the Premier League at Rovers and is the record goalscorer for that division. In his first managerial foray, he failed to revive Newcastle United as they were relegated from the Premier League and was replaced by Chris Hughton at the time. Again, it seems inevitable that Shearer should be a good manager but, like Di Canio, could he resist the temptations of leaving CSE United if he was to do a good job?

    Billy Davies: The former Preston North End, Derby County and Nottingham Forest manager may not be the most cosmopolitan name on the shortlist; however, he has by far the most experience and has several promotions on his CV already. With CSE United looking to progress up the league structure, Davies could be the sensible option although the 'do anything to win' approach might not result in glorious, free-flowing football. The Scot probably would stick with the club during times of success though and would probably guarantee more stability than other names on the list.

    Sergey Gurenko: A little bit of a wildcard option appears to be former Belarussian international defender, Sergei Gurenko. Having retired from the game in 2009 after spells with Lokomotiv Moscow, Roma, Parma and Real Zaragoza, Gurenko recently stepped into management with Dinamo Minsk, his final club as a player. With 80 caps for Belarus, he appears to have a good knowledge of the game but he never played in English football and the accusation will be that he is not ready to start at CSE United.

    Could the 18 players plus any other people reading along please PM me your votes for a new manager. Send me your first, second and third choice please! Voting will close at 21:00 (GMT) this evening.

    If choosing assistant manager, Hans Jorritsma is a good candidate.

    CSE UNITED FC - PRE SEASON NEWS


    Here we go then ...
    The players arrived at the club's top quality training facilities ready to begin their preparations for the upcoming season as they met the new manager, Paolo Di Canio, and his backroom team who all followed him from his previous club, Swindon Town. The Forumites have been predicted by the media to be heading for bottom place in League 2 despite their potential stars and many are speculating that Di Canio may well opt to bring in some experience on loan to boost his options for the start of the season. With friendlies at Eastleigh and Bedford and at home to Bury, Kidderminster and Millwall to come, United will be hoping for a positive start ahead of their first league match on August 6th when they welcome AFC Wimbledon to The Forum, the 10000 seater home of CSE, looking for a good start.

    July 6:
    In pre-season training, central defender Dench Frimpong suffers a setback as he strains his calf. Although he will miss just three weeks and should be available for the opener with AFC Wimbledon, the injury is set to hamper his progress as he seeks to earn a place in the starting line-up.

    July 9:
    As expected, manager Paolo Di Canio does look to bring in more experience and makes his first signing, former Barnsley striker Jamil Adam on a free transfer. The 20-year old Irish striker has only played 4 times for the Tykes though, 0 goals, and Di Canio may be looking for more signings ahead of the new season. CSE United also travelled to Eastleigh tonight for their first pre-season friendly and the club's first match. After a disastrous start when Eastleigh took the lead on 4 minutes, the honour of scoring CSE's first goal fell to Jake Stothard as he levelled on 34 minutes. American striker and man of the match Mike Nevo put CSE in front on 43 minutes but Eastleigh levelled before half time. In the second half, Geraint Alacarde, the Belgian striker, put CSE back in front with what turned out to be the winning goal. However, Yaqub Al-Billionairy picked up a second yellow card late on and was sent off to put a dampener on the first CSE United win. United dominated the possession and had far more shots than their hosts but just 4 shots on target from 17 suggests that some shooting practice is needed ahead of the new season. Eastleigh 2-3 CSE United

    July 11:
    The second pre-season friendly as League 1 side Bury travelled to The Forum for the opening of the new stadium in front of 2172 people.

    The contest was even with both sides having plenty of efforts on goal and Di Canio will be pleased with CSE dominating possession again, 66% of the ball with the new League 2 side. However, Shaun Harrad showed the League 1 sides quality as he hit two first half goals that sunk CSE. Mike Nevo scored late on with his second goal in two games to give United hope but the game ended in a 2-1 defeat despite the promise shown. CSE United 1-2 Bury

    July 17:
    Season ticket sales for the upcoming League 2 season top 3300 with the club expecting to sell another 700 to take the number of season ticket holders close to 4000. A good effort for a new League 2 club.

    July 18:
    A trip to non-league Bedford for the third of five pre-season friendlies and a convincing win for CSE as they finally found their shooting boots. With 70% of the possession this time out, Marcus van der Cook put United in front on 34 minutes before Mike Nevo made it 2-0 just before half time, 3 in 3 for the American forward already. Bastian Schweinstiga made it 3-0 early in the second half before Di Canio's new signing, Jamil Adam hit a brace late on to leave United 5-0 winners and looking good ahead of home friendlies with Kidderminster and Millwall in the coming days.


    Profile screenshots will come at the end of pre-season. Competitive games will have more detail and line-ups included but pre-season is just a quick recap. Hope you've enjoyed the first half of pre-season and I'll get the second part up ASAP. GCB

    In terms of us all understanding who is who, make sure you include your player's name somewhere in the posts. Then we know who you're talking about.

    The only signing is Jamil Adam which leaves us with 19 players. I set the budgets low to ensure the created players would get game time.

    I'll go into more detail with the pre-season stats later so you can see that. For now, I just wanted to get pre-season out of the way with a quick snippet of news.

    Yeah, not good! Not sure yet if he will be suspended for the first game of the season. It isn't showing up yet but I guess there is still time. He is also the first to be called up to his country's squad though.

    GCB - A great start to another super Sign up. Good to see Van Der Cook has found the back of the net already!

    CSE UNITED FC - PRE SEASON NEWS


    July 21:
    Experienced - and some might say pint-sized - right winger, Chris Shuker, a former Barnsley and Tranmere Rovers player, signs for CSE United. The 29 year old becomes the second signing since Paolo Di Canio's arrival at the club and increases the squad to 20 players as the end of pre-season comes into sight. In the fourth pre-season friendly, a home game against Conference side Kidderminster Harrers, goals from Austin Hodge and a hat-trick from that man (again), Mike Nevo, ensure a 4-0 win for the Forumites in a game that they completely dominate from beginning to end. With just one remaining friendly at home to Championship Millwall, Paolo Di Canio will be hoping for a strong finish to pre-season ahead of the season opener against AFC Wimbledon on August 6.

    July 23:
    CSE United's squad numbers for the upcoming season are announced - question is whether or not the numbers give us any clues over Di Canio's preferred starting line up for the season? The numbers are as follows: 1. Edoardo Lorenzo; 2. Omar Brown; 4. Kalju Valjas; 5. Dench Frimpong; 6. Austin Hodge; 7. Elliott van Barthold; 8. Charles Beams; 9. Marcus van der Cook; 10. Mike Nevo; 12. Jamil Adam; 13. Matt Swain; 14. Chris Shuker; 15. Jake Stothard; 16. Josh Wilson; 17. Yaqub Al-Billionairy; 18. Geraint Alacarde; 19. Tin Tin Tin; 20. Draco Longbottom. As yet, Seamus O'Bowman and Bastian Schweinstiga have yet to be assigned a squad number and find themselves currently waiting in the reserve squad. Yaqub Al-Billionairy, despite his red card for CSE in the opening friendly, makes his international debut for Qatar in a 3-0 win over Lebanon.

    July 24:
    4000 season tickets have now been sold ahead of the first ever season for CSE United in their home, The Forum. The club expect to sell another 100 before the AFC Wimbledon game.

    July 27:
    A goal from Marcus van der Cook is enough for the League 2 side to cause a shock in their final pre-season game as they defeat Championship Millwall by 1-0 at The Forum. In an even, tight game, Van Der Cook manages to score the only goal with 17 minutes remaining to give CSE United a major boost heading into the first game of the League 2 season next week.

    July 29:
    Millwall will not have to wait long for a chance to gain revenge on CSE United for their pre-season loss as the two sides are paired against each other in the League Cup. The Lions, who lost 1-0 to CSE only two days ago, will again travel to The Forum hoping that a competitive match will inspire their players to show their quality and secure a place in Round 2. The FA also inform CSE United that goalkeeper Edoardo Lorenzo is suspended for their League 2 opener after a youth team red card at the end of last season.* This will give Matt Swain first chance to secure his place in the starting line-up as he will be the only available goalkeeper for the first two games of the season.

    August 5:
    In his pre-match press conference, CSE United manager Paolo Di Canio says he is looking forward to starting the League 2 campaign tomorrow. He declares that CSE are fully prepared and that he is confident of a win but refused to say what scoreline he expected. When asked about his preferred line up, Di Canio said that he wanted a good performance tomorrow and refused to be drawn on his team. He also told the BBC that the League Cup draw against Millwall would be a challenge but one he believed his side could win. Di Canio refused to comment on his team's chances this season but did predict Burton Albion to struggle this season whilst naming Swindon Town as his pick for the League 2 title - makes you wonder why he left them in the first place!

    Pre-season is over, here are the stats:



    * Obviously, I made that up. Lorenzo's base player must have had a two game suspension hanging over him at the start of the game. GCB

    Not great, but not too bad with 3 assists. Would have liked number 7 but 8 is fine too.

    Schweinstiga needs both a number and promotion into the first team squad.

    Very happy with Mike Nevo's progress so far, but he couldn't do it without the rest of the team! Fantastic stuff lads, and our Right Back looks to be an absolute beast! With Hodge and Beams in the midfield, i'm sure to score plenty this season

    Great update, and good to see Van Der Cook is finding a bit of form. Have a feeling him and Nevo could form a good partnership for CSE!

    7.38 average rating is pretty good but bit confused as to why Paolo is playing him as a ML considering he's a CM..
