gooner01 Posted January 5, 2021 Share Posted January 5, 2021 Hello all, After playing a LOT of FM over the years, i had a few years break when I no longer had the time to put into the game & the Laptop wouldn't support it................ Now that FM21 has come to Xbox I can now give my first ever career blog a go. As usual, I started Unemployed & gave myself no previous experience in the hope I can take a team from non-league all the way to the PL. After applying to every job going, I was eventually given a chance at Dorking Wanderers!!! Season 1 - National League South The Board was hoping to achieve a minimum mid-table position (I wanted promotion) & gave me around 30k transfer budget. So I set about my way getting rid of any deadwood & bringing in new players I thought would get me, at least, a playoff position. I used all the transfer budget on wages & brought in loads of free agents which meant having to go for youth. After signing pretty a entire new first 11, it was time to get the season underway. I opted to play a 4-1-3-2 formation with the aim of getting the ball wide as I knew my 2 strikers would bang them in given the service, & so it proved. Started relatively slow & hovered around the playoffs. After the halfway mark, we really started to get going. With my star striker & 2 solid CB's (see below) churning out fantastic performances we soon found ourselves in a 2 way fight for the title along with Ebbsfleet. This lasted until the final day of the season knowing that we only had to win (or match Ebbsfleet's result) to guarantee us the title..... ......We lost & Ebbsfleet won, giving them the title!!! So Playoffs it was (well, lets do it the hard way then) where we ended up playing Chelmsford (who we had already beaten twice in the league) in the final but maybe this was their time....There was no need to worry though as we raced into a 4-0 lead at half time with us eventually winning 5-2. We had done it with my star striker finishing as the Leagues top scorer & now I had the job of trying to pin my trusted players down to new contracts & get a team ready for the National League! Overview: 2nd in the league (promoted via playoffs) Tommy Stevens top league scorer with 34 goals Finances weren't great due to the high wages of getting in Free Agents Knocked out in the 1st round FA cup Non-existent in the FA trophy New contract for me Notable Signings: Tommy Stevens Tyreece Kennedy-Williams Simon Kozak Ollie O'Dwyer Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
