    Default Create a Striker - Strengths and Weaknesses

    Hi I have decided to create my first ever sign up. It is a basic striker sign up where everyone creates a player then picks to give him up to 6 strengths and an equal amount of weaknesses. This means picking several attributes to be set at 20 and the same amount to be set at 3.

    For example:

    Player A chooses to set his Finishing and Pace at 20 (strengths). This means he has to pick another 2 attributes to set at 3 (weakness).

    Player B chooses only to set Finishing at 20. This means he only has to pick 1 weakness.

    This means the creator must be careful as to which attributes he chooses. All attributes not picked will be set at random. Everyone will begin with a CA of 110 and a PA of –10 and a Repuatation of 30/20/10 for all three.

    Everyone will be randomly assigned to a Premiership club and given a contract until 2009.

    Things I need of you:

    First Name:
    Second Name:
    D.O.B: (must at least be 16 - 1991)
    City of birth (optional):
    Nationality: Place a d in brackets – (d) if you would like to be declared for nation.
    Other Nationalities:
    Strengths: (attributes to be set at 20) [up to 6]
    Weakness: (attributes to be set at 3) [must be same amount as strengths] (cannot be goalkeeping attributes) [dirtiness and injury proneness with be set at 20]
    Favourite Club: (optional)
    Favourite People: (optional)
    Disliked Club: (optional)
    Disliked People: (optional)


    This will be updated every in game on with screen shots yearly at the start due as youth of players will inhibit number of games played. However this will increase to 3 times a year (Start of season, beginning of January and the end of season) when every player starts playing more.

    Hey thanks for joining but unfortunatly you reminded me I forgot something. Dirtiness and Injury Proneness will be set at 20 as this would make them weaknesses rather than the strengths low scores would. You can change this if you want. Sorry it was my fault.

    I didn't think about ambition.

    If its ok with everyone I'll make ambition a free choice (it must be in weaknesses) as both a low ambition and a high ambition would be a weakness.

    Thanks, I'll go with ambition 20 then, I think it will be funny to see Rex get upset every time a club gets interested in him and the bid is refused.

    Have assigned everyone a club randomly the people who signed up so far. Anyone joining after this has already been assigned to a club based on when they join up.

    I also have the document that shows this in case anyone wants to see it.

    Everone currently signed up is in the database. 3 of the 4 big teams still don't have a player assigned to them.

    Cool all filled up. Right theres good news and bad news.

    The bad news is I've just got back from Alton Towers and I'm knackered so I don't think I could finish putting everyone else in the database without making mistakes which I don't want to do.

    The good news is I have lots of free time tomorrow so I will get everyone in the database in the morning and start it (hopefully) in the evening/night.

    If you give me five/ten minutes to sort my lists out I'll put everyone's club up.

    Newcastle isn't so bad, just have to fight off Martins, Owen, Viduka, Smith and Carroll (that is if they don't buy another striker)

    Right everyone is in the database now. A couple of points first though.

    If a person doesn't post in a reasonable amount of time I will stop reporting on their player. Reasonable will be defined by the rest of the users.

    I have decided to increase everyone's CA to 125. This is because in several tests I have ran with a limited number of people everyone didn't get any first team games or get sent out on loan. Hopefully by increasing the CA things will happen sooner and make the sign up more interesting.

    Disclaimer

    Due to FM randomness I cannnot be certain that you will recieve the stats you have asked for. This is one of the things that came up during testing. This is one of the reasons the CA has been bumped up a bit and seemed to affect the 16 year olds more.

    Yeah, I think I read in another post that if you set stats to 20, they will be drawn downwards if you don't also max out on CA/PA as well. Obviously the younger players will suffer more from this. Should still have 16-17 in most cases for your strengths, maybe 15-16 if you are really young which leaves room to improve it to 20.

    Which Leagues are running btw? If you haven't decided, add the other 4 main leagues as well so there is more teams that can buy us.

    I was going to run England down to league two (for loans), Spain, Germany, Italy, Holland, France and Portugal all top only but this might change depending on people's opinions.

    But any others will only be top only.

    Plus my laptop isnt great so I can't run too many.

    I might make all apart from England viewable only but I don't know what effect this would have on the players although I know teams win on reputation rather than the skills of players.

    Urgent Please Read

    After reading Glennuk's sign up I have decided to use one of the ideas mentioned there. Someone suggested taking over the club predicted to finish bottom of lowest league running as it would allow him to use the shortlist function to keep track of players easier. If no one objects I will use this as it makes things easier for me. To do this though I will run the Blue Square Premier as it is unlikely that players with a PA 0f -10 are would go on loan there. However there is one potential drawback. Keeping them on short list means that it would make the club I was at appear on their interest screen, which could unsettle players but this is unlikely due to the level of the club used.

    If anyone objects to this please private message me with your reasons.

    If I recieve no objections by the time I'm ready to start tonight I will assume you are ok with this.

    Sounds good and makes sense with regards to taking over a club. Won't make the slightest difference and players only get upset if clubs of similar rep is interested in them.

    I'd say Run England (to lower levels as described) and Italy, France, Germany, Spain top league only. That shouldn't be too heavy on your computer and given that all players are -10, they will only go to those leagues anyway. Skip Holland/Portugal etc as they will never have high enough rep to attract -10 players once they develop. Could even skip France and Germany or have them on view-only.

    Ahh crud, I am half Geordie, but not from that side (My granddad would turn in his grave).

    At least with my 20 ambition I should get well upset at being at such a low ranked club, Man Utd here I come.


    You running a low league team sounds great, especially as it will keep you close to the action. Us being on the shortlist will cause more problems for you, with the constant media questions asking about you planning to sign us.

    I did think about leaving Holland and Portugal off as theres only (IMO) 5 decent teams altogether in both leagues.

    That's what I would do, except maybe include the BSN/BSS in England so that players could go there on loan as well. The AI teams love to loan out Premiership youngsters.

    You could offset that by leaving off France and Germany.

    Technical Information

    I am running England down to the Blue Square North/South and Spain, Italy and Germany at top level only.

    I have taken over Redditch, as they are the team predicted to finish bottom of the Blue Square North. If they are relegated I will simply add myself again as one of the new teams promoted as more than likely they will end near the bottom.

    At a quick glance FM seems to have lowered some of the high stats, in particular among the younger players. Everyone does have a 2-year contract however those under 17 have to wait until their 17th birthday to sign it.

    As already mentioned I have raised everyone’s CA to 125. This means everyone is more likely to get games earlier.

    If people want I can use FMM or Genie to look at your PA. If you do send me a private message and I’ll look for you. If everyone wants to know I’ll post a table.


    Anyhow onto


    The Players


    Irving R. Pointystick

    I don’t look too bad. Hopefully I can get some first team experience on loan somewhere.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Charles Beams

    Another player who looks good. Has been labelled the next Michael Owen.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Dan Davey

    The first of the players from “The big 4”. Good technical stats but very poor mental stats.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Rex King

    Strong mental stats make up for average technical stats. Has been labelled the next Les Ferdinand. (Go you lol). Also is in the England under 19 squad.
    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...asonstart1.jpg


    Almants Poikans

    One of the best players by far. In tests was one of two players to get international caps.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Harry Barker

    Weak technical stats offset by good physical stats. Is in the Spain under 19 squad.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Haowan

    The man with one name looks fairly balanced. Is also in the Spanish under 19 squad.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...son1sttart.jpg


    Crazy Fool

    Looks good. Very good physical stats.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Roberto Dos Santos

    The young Brazilian looks good. In test he was labelled the next Ronaldo but strangely not in this.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Charlie Sterman

    The Manchester loving Geordie player doesn’t look too bad. At the rough end of the draw on random stats though.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Lawrence Lazewski

    Not looking too bad. Another balanced player. The only other player to play international football during testing.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Mat Frith

    Looks good mentally and physical wise. One of the few (if not only) who didn’t ask for finishing as a strength

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Martin Orient

    Another balanced player. Had slightly poor luck on the random stats on the technical side.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Jason Ryan

    Fairly balanced player with strong physical stats. One of the few with a good chance of first team football. The second lowest valued player.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Stephen Royston

    Again another good balanced player with Chelsea’s training facilities he could go far. Is the most valuable player by over half a million. Is in the England under 19s as well. Also has been labelled the next Les Ferdinand.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Pablo Gonzalez

    Very good for a 15 year old. Will heavily benefit from Man Utd’s training grounds. Is the only player to be valued at nothing however he is the only player wanted by another club. Barcelona to be exact.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Johann Süd

    One of the other players who didn’t chose finishing as a strength. Looks average but could have good potential.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Bill Delgado

    Poor mental stats more than compensated for by extremely good physical stats. Compared to Fernando Torres. Is the second most valuable player.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Sinan Ates

    Balanced player. Could be vastly improved if Tottenham reach their potential.

    http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ason1start.jpg


    Francisco d'Anconia

    One of the best players on this. Could be hampered by being at Derby but I wouldn’t expect him to stay for very long. Has been labelled the next Carlos Bianchi.

    Ah Dan Davey looks like he'll only be playing reserve/youth football unless he can get on loan somewhere.

    I only went to to 31st of december as I just wanted to make sure it ran smoothly. No one got first team football but everyone was regular for under 19s. If it starts to look like no one is going to get first team football I'll take a vote on whether or not to give updates in bigger chunks but only time will tell.

    Martin Orient looks pretty good, should prosper on loan in the lower leagues for the time being.

    Hopefully if he goes out on loan it might be to Orient with the Preferred staff and clubs being how I made them.

    I could not be happier with my player. He has potential to be a real gem of a player. In my career game I'd buy myself straight away! . My only massive worry is that the computer won't know how to use him properly, in my hands he'd be a 30/10/7.50 player.

    Got lucky with physical stats, he will be fast enough for it to matter and with Strength, Jumping, Off the Ball at 18 and Heading 15 he is already a awesome target man. Didn't choose finishing as a strength, and lucked out it seems: 11, 12, 13 for Dribbling, Finishing and First Touch is more than enough when backed up with 18 in Technique and Composure.

    Johann and Lawrence are the only 2 I see have realistic chances of getting all physicals over 10.

    Stepher Royston will also be good, had a good draw and combination of attributes as well as being at Chelsea. Same with Gonzales, although Technique 6 might be tricky. Danconia is also looking good and his combination of set pieces with decent technique means he will probably score a fair few on dead ball situations. Charles Beams is also a good bet.

    Those 6 are my top picks so far but it will be fun to see how the other factors weigh in.

    Keep up the good work!

    Oh yeah, had some questions as well:

    Have the AI started mentoring anyone?

    I guess -10 means 180-200 PA right? Do we want to check exactly how much everyone got or just ignore that?

    What leagues did you end up running?

    Do you have the German/Dutch national teams or are they still filled with blank players?

    Rex King looks pretty fantastic for a 16 year old.

    Glad to see that going for nearly all my strength choices as ones that do not add to my CA has worked wonders. First touch 16 and Finishing 13 are great for random assigned stats. Good to see my gamble on just going for high P{ce has worked and it has linked my Acceleration and Agility to it. Shame the rest of my physical stats are so poor, I hope I am a late bloomer. If you want to ask for me on lone at your club, I won't say no :-P

    Not sure if i want to be in competition with Stephen Royston to be the next Les Ferdinand, I'll let him have that one and settle for being someone else.

    I DO NOT want to know what my PA is, I would rather be suprised at it being high than disappointed at it being low.

    Great updates so far.

    No not yet possibly by the end of the August update.

    Yes it does. I mentioned in the first post that if people wanted to know they could private message me and I'd look but no one has yet taken this option.

    England down to the Blue Square North/South and Spain, Italy and Germany at top level only.

    No unfortunatly I do not but only one person has Germany as a nationality.

    Cheers, missed that.

    I was actually hoping you didn't have the real Dutch and German players. If thinks works out to plan, my player will get a call up very quickly as the game prefers real players to their own grey ones. Atleast thats what happened in my game, several very young players with high PA was called up into the German/Dutch National team at around 18. One can only hope.

    Northwich 0 Fulham 3

    Average (Avg from now on) form (todate) – 7.40

    Well I’m not doing too badly 4 goals from 5 games.
    Made my first team debut in not competitive game and only played 42 minutes.


    Charles Beams

    Oxford City 0 Blackburn Res 3 – Beams 3 goals MOM
    Swidon 1 Blackburn Res 1
    Accrington 2 Blackburn Res 1 – Beams 1 goal MOM

    Avg form 7.33

    A debut hattrick is followed by two average games. Was on the bench for all first team friendlies but not for the Euro Vase games. Is happy Anton Ferdinand is new under 21s captain despite not being in any England squad indicating desire to play for country.


    Dan Davey

    Woking 0 Arsenal Res 2
    Boreham Wood 0 Arsenal Res 3 – Davey 1 goal

    Avg form – 7.50

    Played in two of Arsenal Reserve’s three friendlies giving solid performances in both games. Was on the bench for several of the first team’s games. No changes on international front.


    Rex King

    Airbus 0 Sunderland Res 3 – King 1 goal
    Caernarfon 1 Sunderland Res 3 – King 1 goal
    Mons 1 Sunderland 0
    Charleroi 1 Sunderland 0
    Sunderland 0 Genk 1

    Avg Form – 6.80

    King makes three first team appearances only one of them starting. Played poorly in first team squads but gave good reserve performances. Going to be one of the first to make a first team competitive start.

    Almants Poikans

    Barnet 1 Middlesbrough Res 0
    Stafford 3 Middlesbrough 1 – Poikans 1 goal
    Darlington 2 Middlesbrough Res 2 - Poikans 1 goal

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Not a bad start for the young Latvian in a very poor Boro Reserve squad. Possibility of an international cap in next update but unlikely as he isn’t 16 until end of September.


    Harry Barker

    Was on the bench for several Wigan first team games but didn’t get a game. Bizarrely Wigan Reserves didn’t have any games. Only other change is that he is happy worth the choice of Spain under 19s captain.


    Haowan

    Antayaspor 0 Bolton 1
    Konyaspor 3 Bolton 0
    Besiktas 1 Bolton 3 – Haowan 1 assist MOM

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Poor start to career boosted by performance at Besiktas. Is in the Bolton first team and will probably be the first to make a competitive start.


    Crazy Fool

    Rochdale 0 Everton Res 1
    Ballymena Utd 1 Everton Res 3 – Fool 2 goals
    Oldham 0 Everton 2

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Not a bad start to his career. Was on the bench for several first team games but only made one sub appearance for them.


    Roberto Dos Santos

    Grimsby 0 Reading 1 – Dos Santos 1 goal

    Avg Form – 8.00

    Scores on his debut and only game. Only other thing worth mentioning is that he turned professional during the month.


    Charlie Sterman

    Grasshopper 1 Newcastle 1
    Ankaraspor 2 Newcastle 2
    Bursaspor 1 Newcastle 4 – Sterman 2 goals

    Avg Form – 6.33

    Despite two goals a poor start gaining a 5 rating in his debut. Injuries to Owen and Viduka mean he is likely to start the season in the first squad although Owen is due back just before the start of the season.


    Lawrence Lazewski

    Walsall 0 Aston Villa 2 – Lazewski 1 goal
    Motherwell 1 Aston Villa 1 – Lazewski 1 goal
    Dag & Red 1 Aston Villa 2 – Lazewski 2 goals MOM

    Avg Form – 7.33

    A brilliant start to his career. Is currently in the first team despite lack of injuries to other players. Still not part of the USA or Poland sides but with international games coming up who knows what could happen.


    Mat Frith

    Aldershot 0 West Ham Res 3
    Canvey Island 0 West Ham Res 3
    K.Erciyesspor 0 West Ham 1
    Carmarthen 1 West Ham 2 – Frith 1 goal

    Avg Form – 6.75

    An ok start with appearances in both sides with games. Has another friendly appearance to try to force a place in the first team.



    Martin Orient

    Notts County 3 Man City Res 2 – Orient 1 goal
    Bury 2 Man City 0
    Lech 1 Man City 2 – Orient 1 goal

    Avg Form – 6.67

    Three average performances with two goals. IMHO he needs to move. Man City have too many promising forwards coming through for him to progress well enough (there are 17 forwards in the under 19s and reserves). A loan out would greatly benefit him.


    Jason Ryan

    Waterford Utd 1 Birmingham 3 – Ryan 2 goals
    Derry City 1 Birmingham 2

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Made a good start before getting injured. Is out for one more day. Is in the first team but unlikely to start much.


    Stephen Royston

    Bury 1 Chelsea Res 1
    Boston Utd 1 Chelsea Res 5

    Avg Form – 6.50

    A poor start for the most valuable player. Currently valued at £4.2m don’t be surprised if he is pushing £5m. Is only one of two players in any of the England sides along with Rex King.


    Pablo Gonzalez

    Hartlepool 1 Man Utd Res 2 – Gonzalez 1 goal MOM

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Not a bad debut. Is still worthless and wanted by Barcelona. Currently considering a new contract from Man Utd.


    Johann Süd

    Lincoln 2 Portsmouth Res 3 Süd 2 goals MOM
    Havant & Waterloo 3 Portsmouth Res 0
    Anderlecht 1 Portsmouth 1 – Süd 1 goal

    Avg Form – 7.00

    Not a bad start to his career. Hopefully he’ll get into the first team soon.


    Bill Delgado

    Southport 1 Liverpool Res 0
    Dungannan 1 Liverpool Res 3 – Delgado 3 goals MOM

    Avg Form – 8.00

    Great start to his career should hopefully get a loan out, as he isn’t good enough to play for the first team yet.


    Sinan Ates

    Stevenage 0 Tottenham Res 3 – Ates 1 goal
    Livingston 2 Tottenham Res 1

    Avg Form –7.00

    Not a bad start. Seems to be aiming to play for England rather than Turkey although nothing is confirmed officially.


    Francisco d'Anconia

    Hartlepool 2 Derby 0
    Burton 2 Derby 1
    Stockport 2 Derby 1

    Avg Form – 6.00

    A bad start to his career. Derby lost most of their opening games. On the plus side d'Anconia is in the first team. This is could as it will open more possibilities up for d'Anconia as Derby are going down HARD.


    Is everyone happy with this format? When people start playing competative games I'll keep a running total in the update section as well as a career history.
