Met Police - Vanarama National League South - 2021/22

Our media prediction was to finish 23rd, so this wasn't going to be an easy season.

League Table - we started brilliantly but just couldn't keep it up as we slid down the league.

FA Trophy - just the one match where I rotated the side a bit.

FA Cup - we had a decent run but came up short against league opposition.

Squad (sorry I don't have this screenshot) - we've got a few decent players but our squad is very thin on talent.

Transfers - the early transfers turned out to pretty poor, but we needed numbers badly.

Finances - not great, I've gone over budget which might cause problems next season.

Key Player Profiles:

Jack Mazzone - our top scorer was a player already at the club.

Camron McWilliams - one of our best players, but he's not interested in staying for next season.

Ollie Robinson - our club captain.

Next Season:

Promotion seems a long way off at the moment, so a top half finish next season would be decent.

I've decided to keep my updates as brief as possible, but I'm more than happy to have requests for any other screenshots.

At any time if there's something you want to see, just let me know :)

Of course :D

It's not really working that well, but I like using it.

Nice :D 

I find it difficult to get my mind into a new formations so, I also end up using the same as well :D

The squad screenshot is from one of your past saves :D 

Damn, I had a feeling I'd missed one out.

I'd used an old post as a template, I don't have the screenshot of my squad now.

Met Police - Vanarama National League South - 2022/23

Our first season was unspectacular and with a growing debt it looked like we were in for another tough year.

League Table - we lost a lot of games but no other team really made a challenge for the title.

FA Trophy - we had a couple of good wins but lost out to the National side.

FA Cup - the finances from this saved our season, even without a big money making tie.

Squad - I kept a smaller squad this time to try and keep everyone happy.

Transfers - the standard of players this season was so much better than last, and cheaper too.

Finances - we cleared the debt, but we'll have the same issue next season.

Key Player Profiles:

Tristan Abldeen-Goodridge - easily our best player, although he didn't score quite as many as Mazzone last season.

Jake Askew - it made a big difference having a decent goalie.

Matthew Carson - one of a few players who I'm keeping for next season.

Met Police - Vanarama National League - 2023/24

After our surprisingly unspectacular league win, we were prepared for a tough season in the new division.

League Table - we were just far too inconsistent, drawing too many games we should have won.

FA Trophy - just the one game, it did not go well.

FA Cup - no bug cup run as we met league opposition early on.

Squad - I've released a few players during the season, so these are mostly the players I'm expecting to use next season.

Transfers - some great signings, hopefully we can build on this next season.

Finances - we had a £120k bail out from the board.

Key Player Profiles:

Tristan Abldeen-Goodridge - top scorer again as he looked even better than last season.

Arismar - I love having a Brazilian at this level.

Rhys Brailsford - a quality full back for this level.

Next Season:

With a few new signings I think we can push for a top half finish.

Have you ever tried FM Touch? With your style of play you could roll through season even faster.

I've not tried it, but I vaguely remember looking at it and deciding against it a few years ago.

Met Police - Vanarama National League - 2024/25

We finished 14th last season, so this time we were hoping for a top half finish.

League Table - we made it to the playoffs with a game to go.

Playoffs - not the result we were looking for.

FA Trophy - we lost to a lower league team.

FA Cup - we faced my local team in the 3rd round, and came close to a huge upset.

Squad - I tried keeping a smaller squad this year, which resulted in a lot of tired players.

Transfers - we made some great signings and sold our goalie for a huge fee.

Finances - I've requested that the money is spent on new facilities, so hopefully they go ahead soon.

Key Player Profiles:

Tristan Abldeen-Goodridge - top scorer again, but he's no longer our outstanding player.

Kwaku Oduroh - an amazing signing.

Mike Hodgson - a decent winger for this level.

Next Season:

I'm hoping the improved finances will give us a chance to strengthen the squad and at least make the playoffs again.

Can you post the tactic screen? You always squeeze out the best of your strikers.

Here it is, pretty much the same tactics I've always used!

Is it just me are you moving up a little more slowly than usual this time?

Last time I spent four years in the NLS and then another three in the NL, so I’m perhaps a bit quicker if anything.

Met Police - Vanarama National League - 2025/26

We lost out in the playoffs last season so I was hoping we would be able to go one better this time.

League Table - we topped the table for most of the season before collapsing due to tired players.

Playoffs - we got really lucky as Aldershot had two players sent off in extra time but we saved our best for the final.

FA Trophy - we gave this a go this time, but it turned out to be a big mistake as our squad just couldn't cope with the fixtures.

FA Cup - we beat Premier League West Ham 3-0!

Squad - I probably should have signed a few more players, but at least it was easy to keep everyone happy.

Transfers - a small number of quality signings.

Finances - the FA Cup run has put us in a great position.

Key Player Profiles:

Oscar Thorn - far too good for this level, this was a massive signing.

Sonny Hilton - one of our two great midfielders.

Kwaku Oduroh - a quality defender.

Next Season:

We are turning professional soon now we have reached the Football League, so next season should be interesting.

Met Police - Sky Bet League Two - 2026/27

We should have won the league last season, so I was confident we had enough to do reasonably well in this league.

League Table - we were top for the first six games, but then fell away as the season went on. We snatched a playoff spot on the final day of the season.

Playoffs - we deserved the win, but we left in very late in the final.

League Cup - we knocked out Championship Cardiff but came up short against Premier League Villa.

FA Cup - we were denied a good cup run by Championship Middlesbrough.

Squad - this is a great squad for League Two, I'm not so sure about League One.

Transfers - I splashed out on two late signings that seemed to make a big difference.

Finances - we had lost about half of our cash before the playoff final restored our decent finances.

Key Player Profiles:

Oscar Thorn - still outstanding.

Antef Tsoungui - one of the late signings is our most valuable player.

Owen Hesketh - a big upgrade on a position that was already strong.

I was getting the squad ready for another season in League Two, so I might have to offload a few contracted players to make space to improve the squad.

How are you finding players each season? 

I'm trying to trial all expiring U-18 and U-23 from Premier League and Championsship clubs. Most London-players won't relocate to Morpeth which makes it a bit more difficult :D

Pretty much exclusively unattached players under the age of 24, my scouts have been a bit busier this season but I'm still finding all my best players on July 1st when they are released from their clubs.

Met Police - Sky Bet League One - 2027/28

Two successive promotions have put us in a position we were not really ready for, this season was all about survival.

League Table - we made a late surge to make the playoffs.

Playoffs - we lost out in the semis in the worst possible way.

EFL Trophy - the reserves had a great run, but it ended in heart-breaking fashion.

League Cup - we lost to lower league opposition in our first match.

FA Cup - the Premier league team was too much for us.

Squad - this squad is decent for this division.

Transfers - the usual free transfers.

Finances - we are in a bit of trouble.

Key Player Profiles:

Oscar Thorn - top scorer again, but he's found his level.

Josh Thomas - we broke the bank to sign this forward.

Anesu Crowther - another big money signing.

We've got a decent squad, but the finances are a worry. If I can afford it, a couple of key signings could be enough to challenge for the title next season.

Met Police - Sky Bet League One - 2028/29

A 92nd minute goal knocked us out of the playoffs last season, so this time we were looking for revenge.

League Table - we just got better and better as the season progressed, winning the title with a game to go.

EFL Trophy - this result was a shock, even with our reserves playing.

League Cup - we took a Premier League team to penalties, but lost yet again.

FA Cup - we got our revenge over WBA to set up a dream match against Liverpool, just a shame it was at home.

Squad - I'd imagine a lot of this squad will still be here for next season.

Transfers - the board sold my left back, but it was a pretty good deal.

Finances - even with the player sold and the board putting in £500k, we are still in a bit of trouble.

Key Player Profiles:

Oscar Thorn - his place was under threat this season but he responded in great fashion.

Gary Ridgewell - a quality player, but he suffered a nasty injury in our title winning match.

Josh Thomas - finally I've found someone who is effective as a supporting striker.

Met Police - Sky Bet Championship - 2029/30

Two promotions in three years has put us up with a lot of big clubs, the big worry was that our finances just wouldn't allow us to compete with them.

League Table - we were top for a while but injuries played a part in our loss of form, we had a chance to take the title on the final day but an 82rd minute Palace goal sealed it for them instead.

League Cup - just the one match as it didn't end well.

FA Cup - an amazing win over Forest set up the money spinner against United.

Squad - I'm not really sure how many of these will be good enough, so there could be a major rebuild on the way.

Transfers - still just free transfers, but European scouting allowed us to sign some good foreigners.

Finances - the United game eliminated our financial worries.

Key Player Profiles:

Álex Domínguez - the new main striker.

Önder Çetin - we were lucky to get him, just as the transfer window ended.

Oscar Thorn - he's a club legend now.

Next Season:

Survival is all I'm after, there's no way we are going to jump straight to the top of the league like we have for the last few years.
