not the best season, but not the worst either. We stole a champions laegue spot on the last game of the season and were never really in contention for the title

The Champions League was a little more successful. we breezed through the group stage, easily beat Lyon and then did the double over Barcelona in the quarter final. The semi final saw us play Manchester United, who had just hammered us 5-0 in the FA Cup semi-final. they won the first leg 1-0, then we won the second leg 3-2 and they went through on away goals.

Another poor youh intake. 5 in a row now, my luck has finally run out it seems!

Once you go through that cycle of awful intakes there is nothing you can do

I wonder if I am coming out of the bad cycle of youth intakes

Look at this one!

oh wow, at this stage in the game that's an amazing youth intake. I could really do with one like that!

One thing I've noticed with my youth intakes is that 3 star potentials seem rare as hen's teeth. I can't remember the last time I got one.

Genuinely think it works in cycles and when you are towards the top of the league like we are they stop producing

Happened last time I won the Premier League. Took me over 100 years to recover and rebuild

Some time ago I have started this and abandoned for a different save. With FM21 looming I decided to get back to this.

Donegal Celtic

Season 2029/30 Review – Danske Bank Premiership – Northern Ireland

League (9th)SquadTransfersFinances

Top Goalscorer – Ryan Norton YP5M (18)

Top Average Rating – Ryan Norton YP5M (7.08)

Most Assists – Jamie Kelly YP4J (6)

For the third season in a row we finished 9th in the league, there is a big gap of quality between the top teams in the league and those in the bottom and we can’t seem to bridge the gap. We finished with 6 points more than last season and were never really in danger of being relegated again.

Over the course of the season we brought in a huge £325k in transfer fees which meant that my first choice N.I U21 keeper was sold in pre-season. The two highlighted youth players from last intake also were sold in January, with Ron Connell YP9E being sold for a club record fee of £125k. This has obviously weakened our squad but the big news is that I was finally able to afford upgrades to training and youth facilities ! Both of which are due to be completed in September.

The youth intake wasn’t great in terms of ability but I’m hoping with these upgraded facilities we can develop our players better as currently player development is limited by the basic facilities. I think we’ll be in a similar position at the end of next season but long term the facilities upgrades will be great for us.

Season Review 2277/78

Poor league form, as posted above, couldn't win in October - December

Finished 3rd in Champions League group

Got to final of Euro Cup

Lost to Brighton (keep playing them in every final!!!!!) on penalties, after been down to 10 men very early on. Gutting

£150m!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was only their 3rd bid so I reckon if not for his release fee they'd have gone even higher (88m, 128m the other two) - that's my highest ever sale on any Football Manager though

Does make the side a lot weaker though unfortunately

Season 2050/51

well, I just had a really really devatatingly awful end to what should have been a good season for us

we started really well and up til christmas we were in a 2 horse race with Arsenal, while Man United floundered for once. We breezed through our champions League group and everything was looking really positive. And then......

our league form started slipping and Arsenal got a big gap. And then the teams behind us started catching up. Even with 5 games left to play we looked fairly safe to finish in the top 4 and qualify for the champions league but going into the finall game of the season we'd won 2 of the last 11 and found ourselves 6th, 3 points behind the team in 4th. The teams above us were all in ridiculously good form and over took us. We won the final game 2-1 and finished 5th on goal difference to Newcastle, Who beat us 3-1 the week before.

Check out our season positions!

51boohoohoo.JPG.5abd2e9bca8b0f9a74b7aac364207afa.JPG

And somehow Man bloomin Utd managed to win!

51leaguetable.JPG.0d0adf51b696d2179b98baec2ca68efa.JPG

With so little time left before FM21 and so little time left with this team we really needed that Champions League place. That might be it for us......

Champions League was similarly disappointing. After breezing through the group we were drawn against Inter Milan. A good 3-1 home win was followed up by a 2-1 defeat away, taking us through on away goals. The quarter finals saw us play Bayern Munich. We lost the fisrt home leg 1-0 and were pretty poor. The next match, as we prepared to go to germany, saw us lose 6-1 away to mid-table Leeds. Against the odds, we went to bayern and won 3-2 to go through on away goals

The semi final saw us play West Ham, giving us an ideal chance to make the final! Game before the first leg our best striker did his cruciate ligament. That, coupled with our appalling form made it a bridge too far.......

I really really want to splash all my money on this fella as well!

So with the Beta dropping in next few days what do people prefer - a new thread or renaming this one or even a new thread but just call it the youth academy challenge thread where we start from FM21 and allow people to post from whatever FM they're playing? 

@XaW @Padders @DazRTaylor you 3 are the top active posters so thought I'd tag you to get your views but views from all are welcome

2042/2043

LaLiga – 4th

Fixtures (1) -- Fixtures (2) Fixtures (3) -- Stats -- Awards -- Season Review -- Transfer -- Overall Best XI -- Key Player -- Hot Prospect -- Finances

League: After a bit of a shaky start we showed some promising early season form keeping pace with the top teams in and comfortably sitting in the top 4. One of the big positives this season was even on games that we were losing we weren’t conceding as much as in previous years. We were looking well set for a very good season by all accounts until our big sale in January saw our form take a dip though it did coincide with our toughest run of fixtures. Unfortunately, we did have to change formation due to the aforementioned transfer which made us look less impressive and struggle to keep hold of our top 4 spot. It wasn’t guaranteed even onto the last game where we lost 3-0 but results elsewhere saw us back to back 4th place finishes.

Cup: A very disappointing loss to 3rd tier side in the 3rd round, though we were in the Supercopa which we lost in the final to Barcelona.

Champions League/Europa Leauge: As I thought we were not close to progressing from our group losing 4 of our games but a win and a draw in the others at least allowed us to drop to the Europa League.

We breezed through our first knockout round before finally managing to progress past the 2nd knockout round with a good victory over Lyon. We also found our way past Inter before we lost 2-0 in the second leg of our semi-final against Saint Etienne as they overcame a one goal deficit from the first leg.

Squad: Martin Djidda 20a got himself into the first team which is promising for the future at centre back. Jose Bonilla 10a managed to surpass both 200 goals and assists for the club in all competitions which is a very nice accomplishment.

Players of the year

Jose Bonilla 10a: Our best player for 6 of the last 7 seasons again with a good season this time, 21 goals and 18 assists to his name.

Nauzet Gutierrez 13c: An opposite season to last time, got off to a fantastic start before ending the season poorly. Still managed an impressive 31 goals in all competitions though.

Daniel Abal 13d: Still a very good performer for us whilst providing little in direct contributions – 3 goals and 3 assists. 

Youth Intake

The HOYD from last season retired after just one year at the club, this years intake was middling really.

8508e4acd7ba932fdd076ba6ff6a4a84.tif

Janusz Wawrzyniak 23a: A decent looking option in the centre of midfield either footed and already a decent personality.

Alexandre Vasconcelos 23b: Another decent looking player on the outset, an attacking midfielder which isn’t really utilised by me but some nice mentals to start off.

Ayoze Segura 23c: Looks to have some decent attributes for a striker, though lacks pace.

Overview/Looking Ahead

To be honest, with FM21 beta imminent it’s probably a case of one more season really and I’m not sure we’ve got what it takes to both win the league and champions league, but that’s what I’ve got to aim for really.

The story so far

Whilst I've got the chance, many thanks to all that have participated in this challenge over the last year, FM20 has been the busiest time or this challenge where we usually get between 20 and 30 pages so to get over 100 pages is great so yeah. Cheers all :applause:

Thanks for organizing a great challenge! Hopefully even more people will join on FM21!

Thanks @Padders. A lot quicker than I expected, but I had such a great team compared to the teams I had when I completed the challenge with South Shields and Real Jean (FM20). With those saves I relied on a few key players, but this time I've had so much luck with the intakes it's crazy. Several national team players and no real weak links. Crazy luck!

Not even managed to get through half a season, and with the beta dropping tonight I'm not going to go through the season. It was looking likely to be a poor season from us anyway with us winning just one of our opening 7 league games already finding ourselves 14 points away from top of the league. We were unbeaten so far in Europe after FMing PSG and Manchester City mind but oh well.

 

I'll probably attempt this again later in the FM21 cycle rather than from the onset, but I'll aim to start at a time where I'll actually have enough time to finish (or a good attempt at finishing) before the next iteration is out.

Why cant I have a board like that, only selling them!! Seems realistic though as I guess would do that IRL and are we allowed to use them if it happens?

Nope.  You do what @Padders did and move them to the reserves and sell them as soon as possible. Under no circumstances do you play them.
