[FM22] Where it all began - The Worlds First Football Club - Sheffield F.C.

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to my save,

I have been thinking quite a lot about creating a save which would keep me interested. I tried to find a club with interesting history that would be worthy of creating a topic on here. I also have some unfinished business as my last topic I have finished earlier then planned and without reaching my end goal, due to FM22 coming out.  I plan to play this save until probably FM23 is going to come out. (In hopes that they are going to improve DYR) .

I was also considering doing a youth only save however, last time I tried it didn't go so well so gave up in the end :D Also doing it in England would be also more difficult I suppose. Also apologies if this save has been done before :D 

 

The Club

See the source image

The club I picked for this save is Sheffield FC which is The Worlds First Football Club. The club has been established in 1857 over 150 years ago !!! In their vast and long history, unfortunately they do not have many honors to their name worth noting and they find themselves in the 8th tier of English football. Since creation they have been going moving their grounds quite a lot and at the moment they are base in Dronfield which is around 7-10 miles away from Sheffield. The club is planning to move back to the city, building a grounds called The Home of Football, which definitely fits the case.

 

Myself at least virtually want to help bring the club glory it deserves for being the first football club. 

 

Career Objectives:

1. Reach Football League

2. Get a new stadium and facilities - preferably in Sheffield. 

3. Reach Premier League

4. Become more reputable club then other clubs from Sheffield (Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday)

5. Win whatever we can. PL preferably, maybe CL if it is possible. 

 

 

 

I have not setup the save yet, but will be doing this in coming days, when I find the right database. Hopefully you will enjoy the read.

According to Star ratings, both of below are already best players in the club, and both are still quite young. Hope that they will not be poached.

Some youth prospects already in the club :

 

I think he is top prospect

Justin Simon also has 5* potential.

I treat this as less important until we reach like 3rd round where we can hope to play away to big teams, but we are wayyy of that.

We managed to squeeze through to first round, and got Charlton from League 1 at home. I guess this will be the end.

We have signed out from this cup pretty quickly. Don't really care, we have plenty of games to play.

League

Mixed results. We have drawn or lost against the teams from bottom half, however we managed to pull a result against Marske Utd.  At almost half way through the league season we are suprisingly 3rd however there is 2 point gap between 2nd and 6th. Liversedge are pulling away from the pack now.

just wish we won against Bridlington, would make the month perfect. With 12 games left we are well in playoff battle. Hebburn and Shildon seem to have dropped the pace.

Despite loss against Stockton we are 13 points clear in playoffs. We are also only 7 points off top now. Can we catch them?

Youth Intake

 

Not too bad first intake. Carl Jackson is already on first team level. Will definitely give him some play time, however I doubt that he will massively improve.

March 2022

A perfect month. A massive victory against Liversedge gets us only 1 point behind them. So we have 4 games left, looks like Liversedge have got the easiest fixtures as we still need to play 3rd placed team.

After the first game I thought we had no chance of getting promoted. However Liversedge slipped twice ! to allow us to overcome them to top of the table . Happy Happy Happy, just worried that will have to do full rebuild next season.

Star player

I think Tom Bell has been sensational. Picked him up for free and he was a crucial player for our team. Just look at his stats, comparing to other players. In 39 games he made a whooping 208 key passes. The next player has only 97. He also had most CCC's created and most assists for the team. absolute beast for our level.

22/23 Pre-Season

Friendlies went very pretty good, we'll see if we can carry this on in the league start.

image.png.3302c99dd740673743a1e3dd107a41a7.png

 

Transfers

So we didn't manage to hold Tom Sams, who was our leading defender. Etia and Burns are just fringe players that needed to go. I brought in some players to give us quality depth, Nothing really to show as most of them can leave at any time...

Board Expectations

Board expects us fight against relegation, I am happy with that.

image.png.c2cea0388f8e90425d09ee67e9f0b006.png

Despite the board wanting us to fight against relegation. the media expects us to finish 6th.

We are in negative balance, however our wage budget great.

Thanks ! I hope that we can keep it up, however lots of my rotation players are leaving.. :seagull:So most of these games I was playing very similar starting 11.  Fitness already is starting to be an issue.

September 2022

League

I can understand draws agains Warrington and Marske as they are mid table, but a draw agains Bamber Bridge is dissapointing. We have also dominated in all of 3 drawn games, just couldn't convert. We dropped to 4th with 3 points gap to top and 5 points in playoffs.

Wasn't happy to play extra game against Willand, as our schedule is tight already. We are off to Maidstone next in Vanarama.

Mixed month. The loses and the draw hurt, especially that they are against the teams in lower half. We still in 3rd place with 4 point off top and 4 points in playoffs. We are also 15 points above relegation which is what we are fighting against this season.

November 2022

League

Almost perfect month. Wins against FC United and Rylands are important, We also didn't give in to the mid/lower table teams. As a result we go top of the table, with Mickleover a game in hand they can potentially have same points as us. We are 7 points in playoffs, and fair to say we are probably safe in relegation :D

Fa Cup

Narrow win against vanarama Southport and we are away to Oxford which are in League 1. We are also playing away and they get  crowds of around 7k, so it maybe a bit of money into our account.
