Checking in with Clapton Community FC in the Middlesex County League Premier Division. 

Just offered trials to like 100 players to have a look at their attributes before deciding which ones will be a part of our assault on the league. Gonna try and find some quick attackers and aerially dominant defenders for a basic 4-4-2.

Nice, I am all in favour of pacey strikers with good finishing

There's a winger with pace and acceleration 17, but terrible technical attributes. But I'm thinking of just sticking him in a poacher's role and hoping he'll score enough goals if we can get him opportunities 1 on 1. He's aptly named Louis Hamilton :D

Sounds good are you doing Messi's challenge, I am with Brighton Electricity 

Yeah, I'm going to give it a go. I'm awful at the game, but it'll be fun to see if I can get 10 points on the board. :D

I've recruited for a 4-4-2, but if I am on the verge of the sack, I'll turn to 4-3-3 in a desperate effort to save my skin.

One question Messi,

As per this challenge are we allowed to move clubs at the same level or lower, but not higher ? 

I think this is a good scope on the challenge

The challenge is to try and take the club all the way to the top.

If you get sacked you have to apply for jobs at level 11 clubs.

The club dont have to have started in level 11 but must be in level 11 when you apply and takeover

Does anyone else give their players nicknames to remember who plays where? I hate just seeing a list of names that mean nothing to me. Not knowing who is who on my subs bench etc.

Fair enough haha. I've nicknamed my whole team based on some of Fergie's Man Utd sides. I've got Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole up front haha. Big Roy Keane as a destroyer.

Go on then, thought I'd give the challenge a go see how I fare with a proper challenge. Started the game and applied for the club from home Crewe FC, had a couple of offers from Worcester City and Wigan Athletic (which was a bit unexpected) but they ain't level 11 so turned them down. Crewe FC interviewed and offered me the job it's only 5 minute jog into work, leaving Nantwich Town needing a new Club Secretary!!!

Messi, don't know if it is an issue but tried to download the spreadsheet and my McAfee went no thanks!

I'm in.  Post of my starting profile below.  I'm now manager of Winchester Castle.  I'm quite a slow player so updates wont be fast flowing!  

Have started though, P3 W2 D1 in league after 3 games.  Had two men sent off in first game!

Just played my first competitive match. I was away at NW London in the Middlesex County Premier Division. I scored in the 2nd minute and then got someone sent off on 8 minutes. Despite going down to 10 men I was creating more and better chances. But the longer the game went on the more NW London grew into it and the final 10 minutes were spent heading everything that came near the box clear. Managed to hold on for a well-earned 3 points and a welcome clean sheet. 

Happy days.

Hi,

First of all, I think this challenge is amazing and seeing you guys sharing infos about your journey is fantastic.

I don't want to go off topic but I couldn't help notice that some of you have finished a season in 1 or 2 days .. how do you manage to do that ? When I play It takes me 2-3 weeks (!) for a season. 

I am genuinely curious as I think I am doing something wrong.

A stadium expansion due to league requirements.

A expense we could do without but hopefully we can get a good run in the FA Vase/FA Cup to cover the costs.

We are also turning semi-pro.

Hey Messi, 

 

Did you team turn semi pro after promotion, and did you lose many players ?
