    Default Whats coming down the Chimney?!

    After reading alot of Dafuges Bourneview Career I fancied a crack myself. So I'm going to take a break from my other career and give this a go

    I started off with a large DB with just the Northern Ireland Leagues loaded, I also loaded all players from the UK & Ireland aswell as Top Club players and International players. That started me off with a DB of 41,000. I'm also using the latest patch 12.2.

    Chimney Corner Preview and Media Prediction



    Chimney Corner's Background



    I didn't want to wait a season for the newly promoted teams so I picked the team predicted to finish bottom of the league. Hoping to gradually make my way up through the leagues to the top

    My First Signing



    Released by Wigan, I've blown my whole budget on him I'm hoping to stay up with what I've got as long as he scores the goals to keep us up. May be a few more loans coming in but we don't have the funds for anything else.

    A great start to the season, the only loss came vs a Premier division side so it was expected, the team has gelled well and Amos is banging in the goals.

    Funny enough, I actually did exactly the same as you! Went from a Barcelona save, to a bottom league save haha! Best of luck in your new career and i'm more than sure it will be more fun and satisfying.

    Relegation fears seem over after the halfway mark. All of my players (expect Amos ) contracts are ending at the end of the season and no-one wants to renew so the summer could be tough

    I had worked my way up to the Barcelona job and realised I missed the nitty gritty of the lower leagues.

    I had a similar problem with Darlington in my career, but I found a few bargains and some good loan players.

    Think I will have to do the same but with only a £250 p/w wage budget its going to be tight

    I had a career save with Chimney Corner many years ago and really enjoyed it - think it was back on CM08/09 or something like that.

    Best of luck for the future!

    Season Review

    We fell at the end, we couldn't buy a win in the run in with 3 games to go we were still in 3rd place and it got even worst! overall the season was a success its just disappointing to be in the postion we were in and then fail to get promoted but we will regroup and go for it next season

    Chimney Corner - Northern Irish Second Division - Season 2011/12


    It was a season that should of been brilliant as we were well clear of the relegation zone and we were favourites for relegation at the start of the season but in the end it was disappointment as with 9 games to go we were 2nd and faniced our chances of promotion

    League Table

    Cup Round Up

    Key Players

    Tommy Amos
    It was his injury that I felt caused our downfall at the end of the season, I'm Not going to play him in the cups next season to keep him fresh for the league and hope he can shoot us to promotion

    Jamie McMullan
    When I Joined he was an unproven youngster but had massive potential so I decided he would be my number 1 from the start and he was awesome just a shame he doesn't want a new contract

    Ryan Jenkins
    Mr Consistent, Never had a bad game

    Simon Gibson
    My Rock at the back and will be captain next season now he's agreed a new contract

    Michael McGroggan
    Amos strike partner ended up top scorer but couldn't strike up a partnership whilst amos was injured and form dropped without him

    Next Season

    Promotion pure and simple

    Key Players

    Tommy Amos

    Our Star man went all season without injury until the penulimate game but happily took an injection to ensure he played the final game. Top Scorer and I hope he can score the goals to keep us up next season

    Michael McGroggan
    The quiet one, In Amos's shadow but pops up with vital goals, I bought in 3 other strikers as I thought he wasn't good enough but he proved me wrong and kept his place

    Simon Gibson
    Captain Reliable! Rock at the back and is more than ready for the step up

    Dan Bennett
    Gibson's partner at the back, even though he's young he is a star in the making.

    Chris Craig
    Our Midfield magician pulled the strings and ran the games. Chimney's own Paul Scholes

    Season Review

    What a season! We were always in the top half, With 5 games to go we were 4 points behind Warrenpoint and on the last day we had to win and we sure did, Cups I used youth and fringe so never paid much attention to them. Need to strengthen if we are to stay up but its whether the board increase my wage allowance.

    New signing to improve our defence and proved to be a rock.

    Kieran Stallard
    Haines new partner at the back and had the same effect

    Ruairi Harkin
    Centre midfielder who ran the games for us

    Season Overview

    Wow I couldn't quiet believe it myself, all season we were around 2nd-5th place and our form was good enough to get 2nd, In the end abit disappointed that I didn't win the league when I missed out on just goal difference. It was a big shock that we then won the playoff, I would love to just stay up next season
