[FM21] Rebuilding The Minstermen - York City FC

The preamble

 

First - Is this the end of the FC Isle of Man save? No, absolutely not.

I love that save, and still have a lot I want to achieve with it.

But now and then I find myself needing a break from it and playing something different.

I quite often find myself playing a month or two of an old save, or looking for something else to start.

I have also recently started a new job, working from home, and I find myself playing occasionally during the day while waiting for reports to run, or pressing the space bar on the side when a phone call or zoom meeting has gone on too long :lol:, but without going into the details of the game by game, which would be too time consuming.

I considered a Scottish low level save, but then seen that there were still teams in The Championship that were semi-pro, I even considered a really low save, and taking an amateur team all the way up, but I wasn't sure I could be bothered starting that low all over again, and dealing with the semi pro status wasn’t appealing.

Another idea was to take another team from Liverpool, or Manchester, to the Premier League for a three sided rivalry, but that wasn’t going to work for this type of part time save. Still an idea I am keeping in the back of my mind for the future though.

So the other day, I was reading through the some League's and found some professional teams in low Leagues, and a particular team caught my interest...

York.png.8abf23f5666723eb02b7ed897212c18b.png

 

York City FC played as high as The Championship (Division 2) in the 70's, before sliding their way down the League's, bouncing between 3rd and 4th divisions, before being relegated to the National League in 2016.

Instead of pushing for promotion back to The Football League, York City suffered the embarrassment of a second straight relegation to the National League North in 2017, and 5 seasons later, despite some near misses, they are still stuck in the 6th tier of the English pyramid.

 

So my goal for this save will be to rebuild the club, restore their Football League status, and then attempt to push them up the League's.

I will be trying to do that with youth, although it may not be a youth only save, I will be trying to rebuild the club, with putting the staff in place to make the most of the facilities that I will be trying to improve as well.

 

This will be a lot less detailed than the IoM save, I will mostly be doing monthly or so updates, as it will only be playing part time anyway.

I am not going to be doing goal scoring goalkeeper in this save, one less thing to worry about tracking in a part time save, that will just be about having some fun, and taking a break from the big save.

York City is in the north east region of England.

 

985319157_York2.jpg.117ec0903cf143241c4bff83f8b481d9.jpg

Home to over 200,000 people.

 

1411005476_YorkCommunityStadium.jpg.cf69f9057e16aa94371de9eb8058911e.jpg

York City FC play their home games at York Community Stadium.

An 8,500 all seater stadium, built in 2019, that's part of a sporting and entertainment complex that includes pools, gyms, indoor sports halls, outdoor 5 a side pitches, a medical centre, and a library.

It's a pretty spectacular looking complex, that should contribute to the regrowth of the club.

 

York’s main rivalries have been Hull City, and Scarborough, while a rivalry with Halifax Town developed during their time in the National League, as they were the most local team to York at the time. Another rivalry in the National League was also with Lurton Town, as the clubs seemed to meet regularly in crucial matches, as well as off field issues developing between the clubs.

In 2017-2018, the clubs first year back in the National League North, they finished a disappointing 11th.  The following season would see no improvement, ending up with another mid table finish in 12th. The 2019-2020 season was heartbreaking for York City, as they were leading the table when the season was called off due to the pandemic, only to be relegated to 2nd on the points per game rule, before being beaten in the play off semi final.

So near, yet so far…

Time for change.

A new beginning

1157999868_ManagerPic2.png.71f408c66af0582ebfac0200dd9f94cd.png

I went with club appropriate, then adjusted to my usual attack at all costs approach.

 

111854468_BoardExpectations.png.a0ba621b1a9192376c14dba91906479d.png

The Board want play offs as a minimum, 1st Round of the FA Cup, and 3rd Round of the Trophy.

A pretty healthy transfer and wage budget.

 

1028146284_Bookieodds.png.eb451263917861041ae1aba91b12bede.png

The Bookies rate us a good chance to make the play offs.

 

 The Squad

530244169_BestXI.png.dfb62924fafc77b8ef5dc5163a1b3a40.png

Some pretty handy looking players among the squad to start off.

 

236041982_BestXIb.png.9f8c887436947fbcd1310d006835439a.png

I am still following the attribute ratings, but a little less detail in this save.

 

Tactic

Tactics.png.025ccee6eaaa746c97004ef25217c7a2.png

Going to use the same attacking 4-2-4 formation that has been so successful.

 

Club Facilities

1642400089_SEPFacilities2.png.85a556796a71ef274f984760000932d7.png

The training facilities are pretty good, but there is some work to do on the other areas, especially the youth recruitment, if I want youth to raise this club up.

 

1776612041_FriendlySchedule.png.49027141e9d36ebd5d4742943f283533.png

The National Leagues don't start until October, so we have plenty of friendlies to warm us up.

Some solid outings in the pre-season friendlies gave us plenty of time to have a look at the squad and various combinations.

We still have some room to move under the wage budget.

 

2116041112_SEPExpectations.jpg.a4981d38545f3b2e76fe5a2e01562615.jpg

The Board have the wage budget as an important part of the 5 year plan.

A mixed month as we started a bit rough, but in the last game of the month we really put it all together.

 

1682858693_OCTTable.png.2011aacc471a54849e4877fcc4073765.png

Currently sit 9th, a better end to the month helped in that regard.

A quality start to our Cup run as we beat two lower division teams, before National League South team South Shields, so we have reached the first round, Board expectation achieved.

958860557_NOVSchedulecompleteLeague.png.ac124a1e9a9782a5bbb64ddb0807d275.png

A shaky start with back to back draws, before it clicked into gear to finish the month with three straight wins.

 

1108606299_NOVTable.png.810ecb268ce6951fa165ed53c2bf6cc7.png

We sit just out of the playoff spots with a game in hand.

We beat Havant & W with a solid win, before a kind draw in the 2nd Round sent us up against Hampton & Richmond, and it took an injury time winner to send us through to the 3rd Round.

1533592268_DECShecdulecompleteLEague.png.138801916d91c1113b5aea336ac8222f.png

Our winning run stratched to 7 matches before we were beaten in the last game by Boston, especially as the partnership at the front between Redshaw and McGill has started to flourish.

 

943398442_DECHighscoringLeaguegame.png.7679f1c006c8d90c96593da64946d8a9.png

We broke the League record for high scoring game with our 6-3 coach killer against Telford.

 

989490617_DECTable.png.e0e1513a85a90bcbc6b10a607161ce1d.png

We jumped to first as Chorley stumbled, and pre-season certainties, Fylde, had a rough month.

1109554927_DECShecdulecompleteFATrophy.png.96d3936aeadf25b4cc57fe0fc84a4307.png

Drawn against two Regional Premier League sides, we recorded comfortable victories in both to send us to the 4th Round.

 

 

1388576424_DECStats.thumb.png.f5d57c61173c17ea6387f9def0824b50.png

The McGill / Redshaw partnership has racked up 32 goals between them already.

 

1806947696_DECAnalyst.png.238d81fb196d015ec765b4967ff98b03.png

The Analyst is still happy with the attack, but concerned about our defence.

At the next opportunity I will be looking to bring in a better qualified defensive coach.

 

1212933754_DECMgrotMth.png.798c7738a6bd122fa240c14e4c9931c9.png

I picked up my first Manager of the Month award for our form at the start of the month.

 

332205131_DECFinances.png.f73f974fbf9f63b79496fdd0043eacf4.png

The finances took a solid wack this month, especially with no FA Cup games.

 

669975664_DECYouthrecimp.png.931a2cf50e14e6b923aee7dacd9622c9.png

After some negotiation, I got the Board to agree to up the Youth Recruitment, not that it will help this season.

 

1918598136_DECYouthrecimpb.png.ed4900e236f4acca6cdde670ffc0fa44.png

It increased Youth Recruitment by a single point.

Still plenty of work to do in that regard.

 

451791470_DECYouthIntakePreview.png.e4c7c8ab8694fc85f2a9b643d4d805a9.png

Fullback, midfielder, forward, striker. All of those will be useful, if they can make it to the first team.

We are struggling for depth in most positions.

 

672822231_JANSchedule.png.4e101fb494a4d74fefab954c14f147cd.png

Another busy month as we host Norwich in the FA Cup, so no big money spinner yet, FA Trophy, and 5 League matches.

A brilliant month as we roll through with 5 straight wins. The attack really getting it together.

 

1263593925_JANTable.png.f925cbd279598a49218fd0def0b05ab6.png

Our winning run has raced us out to an 11 point lead at the top.

858898589_JANScheduleFACup.png.cafdff213f17afa3745916bf86882ae5.png

We were always up against it against Championship Norwich, and while we were well beaten, we were not embarrassed.

The Board wanted 1st Round, we made it to the 3rd. A good effort.

571865424_zFATrophy.png.a9535b5394b7156db0a1db5a6d179fb8.png278944539_JANScheduleFATrophy.png.07780051c5182cb1ca7dcb0740b0cf4a.png

Just the one Trophy game this month, and while 3-0 looks comfortable against National League Stockport, it was only two late goals that made it that way, in an otherwise tough battle.

 

1936110597_JANAnalyst.png.3fb338b9310e8902724ab4dafd69ed38.png

The Analyst is happy with the attack, but not so with the defence, which is strange as we have the second best defence in the League.

Wonder if conceding 4 against Norwich has any thing to do with this.

1639061849_JANMgrotMth.png.f9057917b21c2300db524e10ddb87abf.png

Our perfect month leads me to the Manager of the Month.

 

1785726340_JANFinances.png.744de6ae97faa8bb25836b1285d95a98.png

A solid month financially, with a good gate from the sold out FA Cup game helping, but not as much as a juicy away game would have.

The down side to a small home ground capacity.

 

1836793962_FEBSchedule.png.20222d0790e8baf2900d33db96559f59.png

After a spectacular couple of months, we come back to earth winning only one of our 5 games, but we also only lost one.

 

1271281930_FEBTable.png.53eb304757309c435ebd10f9203eceab.png

Still first, but Boston have cut the lead to 7.

1305883984_FEBAnalyst.png.236dcec0fe77ff459a7ac9e80bf64ef9.png

The Analyst isn't too happy, our defence is still too leaky, and the offence stuttered somewhat this month.

 

1120966098_FEBFinances.png.c8f34c1f7c826c9adfd9fd02340a48c6.png

Another slight loss this month, with no FA Cup games to cover the gaps.

 

813889888_MARSchedule.png.75f4625d3a7d86424e940545c4a5a002.png.Another busy League month, and the finishing with an FA Trophy semi final, which has not yet been drawn.

653022410_MARTable.png.ebe94808478beb636de04a2635842d18.png

We are still first but Boston have taken another point out of it.

2118572084_MARScheduleTrophy.png.d0455e46eef0451b38ad494bac2047b5.png

We were into the final, leading 2-1 at Yeovil, but the National League side launched a comeback for the ages, scoring twice in injury time to send us crashing out.

 

453769567_MARAnalyst.png.9781fbefb32543f11cdef8965dd3a86e.png

The attack and defence are both still on the wrong sides, but there has been improvement.

 

689442065_MARStats.thumb.png.1c09cf0904ae486b0e8b4886ca4db420.png

Redshaw and McGill have racked up 50 goals between them. Bunn became the third player to hit double figures.

 

1426881981_APRSchedule.png.fa47ed6bce9715338a1e69d133471e6f.png

The Trophy exit leaves us with just the League to concentrate on now. This next 6 games could define our season.

April 2021 - Youth Intake

 

1005041296_APRYouthIntake1.png.12d3f3b5e5ac9e31f6691f2a800c71f0.png

My first Youth Intake arrives, and looks pretty decent out of the box.

One player good enough to go straight into the first team, and a few others not far behind.

 

2076528786_APRYouthIntake2.png.18e1eb694447dbe43597605695a9a0cc.png

Some pretty decent attribute scores to start off with.

As expected, Bell is good enough for 1st team, and a few very closely following.

The (Y) indicates a York native.

 

321110322_APRYouthIntake3.png.2bca910d0f0253ede00aed552a96b5da.png

I borrowed this idea from @shaunvamos, to be able to follow where our academy kids are coming from.

12 of 16 from England, 11 of them from York.

 

The Best 3

1667701354_APRYouthIntake4.png.16eba6384c00eee01af2fc19eabbe8b2.png

A genuine dual footer who can play left or right wing, and striker. He will probably start on the wings until that finishing comes up some.

Even though only 15, his attributes make him a genuine first team player straight out of the academy.

 

1460507270_APRYouthIntake5.png.bc2a0a1e964b39125f9d55fab58f80bc.png

A right and central defender, who can also play left if needed.

Plenty of improvement to be made, but massive potential, and is not far off the first team squad already.

 

690663195_APRYouthIntake6.png.b432474fdd9b9ca91f6fffc20b714dd5.png

A big central midfielder, and again, plenty of improvement to be made, but massive potential.

 

 

Overall, very happy with my first intake, as we get a first team player, and several who will probably be in the first team next year, which allows me to shed plenty of the players that I inherited for next season.

With only the League to concentrate on, we had a brilliant month, dropping points only to Fylde.

 

226978331_APRTable.png.aeab5c9196aeafe37afab476743d6802.png

AN important win over Boston at the end of the month, extends our lead, and guarantees us play offs as worst.

 

204484620_APRAnalyst.png.dfe7c15d4766c2294ccb5c538994d6c3.png

We conceded only 4 goals this month, but the Analyst is still calling us leaky :idiot:

Our good form lead me to another Manager of the Month award.

 

1259194835_APRYoungestPlayer.png.642e8a19fd0096dd7d421407fa569012.png

Bell did go straight into the first team, and broke the record for youngest player.

 

1135157924_APRYoungestScorer.png.efa12331d02ff2e8b566e40ac3496695.png

Three days later, playing his second game, he smashed home his first goal, breaking the youngest goal scorer record as well.

 

A very confident start for a kid who is still 15, as by the end of the month, he played four games, and scoring two goals, including the winner in the top of the table clash against Boston at the end of the month.

 

324544082_MAYSchedule.png.ff05435ad04d3b8c1cbf0627a4fcceb5.png

Six games to go to the end of the season, with a nine point lead, it's make or break time for our title challenge, and first step back to the Football League.

A good start to the month confirmed our title, as the challengers fell away.

We then had some mixed matches as we started sending out some of the academy kids to get them some experience.

 

1723274239_MAYFACupReview.png.e48f33e665fe3126b57bc8d0efef5732.png

Wolves won the FA Cup, but we were the biggest over achievers, while we had the leading scorer and most assists.

 

1224811655_MAYFATrophyReview.png.8112e98a3326dee57c75629f4dcd15e4.png

Yeovil knocked us out in the Semi Final, before going on to lift the Trophy.

 

672829172_MAYFinances.png.b3f7c8a302ea2635173512df0fc44c88.png

We turn a bit of a profit to end the season.

 

69183674_MARYouthRecImp.png.25d01a6fc73209aa936b8d96e6ae85db.png

I managed to get the Board to agree to another Youth Recruitment upgrade.

 

1101484975_MARYouthRecImpb.png.55b5f4a5348af90aa9db4af77ad3834c.png

So recruitment has now caught up to coaching.

Now to see if I can get them to splash some cash and upgrade facilities.

 

716996750_MAYTitle4.png.4dd12f26e59f8e5cfa56070689d19ed7.png

One more time for good measure, as we take the first step of leading York City FC back to the Football League, National League, here we come.

Another idea borrowed from @shaunvamos's spreadsheet.

 

Our overall attribute average from the Best XI has increased, while the average age gas decreased an entire year.

Positive signs going forward.

Straight into a run of friendlies, before our return to the National League kicks off with a home game against Halifax.

We played pretty well through friendly season, although we loved a draw.

We then kicked off our return to the National League with a hard fought win over Halifax.

 

1530647967_JULTable.png.71adc0c1f0fc18709bcce7d837f4976f.png

Undefeated and not even in the play off places :lol:

 

2051963974_JULFinances.png.fe18931b997073c232f7dcbf315a7e08.png

I forgot to screen shot it but the Board agreed to upgrade the Youth Facilities, so that was the big expense this month.

 

725851774_JULExpectations.png.fe15d70a6e45a02d207d8645f040e67c.png

The Board want mid table in the League, FA Cup 1st Round, and Trophy 4th Round.

They have given us nearly double the wage budget of last season, and a healthy transfer budget, although I am unlikely to use any of it.

 

1126328756_JULBudgets.png.bc463317d3d220124f44145e3941a533.png

Spending well below the wage budget at this stage.

 

976198758_AUGSchedule.png.db5590d724abfc1302b6cfd6776a7247.png

Although the season has started, it really kicks into gear with 6 games next month.

1195356933_AUGScheduleLEague.png.9a30d48e9e3f34e465338536443c16b3.png

A rough start to the month as we went without a win for the first 4 games before turning it around in the last two games.

 

2033675545_AUGAnalyst.png.8b2154000f75075909f3845683378656.png

The attack has been good, but the defence has been leaky.

 

1186297294_AUGTable.png.c71f894c34b8769306f4b3b0e0ab52c7.png

Winning the last two games took us up to 9th, but we had dropped as low as 17th.

 

1857992109_AUGSTats.thumb.png.356252074c89b0de5a6157b5aa3676ef.png

I think I sorted by goals instead of games, but I am making a conscious effort to get the Class of 21 kids involved in more games.

 

178348901_AUGYoungestGoalscorer.png.d11d28925b5e552137123f38ea0b1532.png

Our best Academy product broke the record for the Youngest Scorer in the National League.

 

916221194_AUGFinances.png.54ed27f7963aa82f967aaa5c4806ed74.png

We are losing money most months, so are going to hope for some luck in the Cups to help us out this season.

 

1304773145_SEPSchedule.png.b09f796d0eb83633db35c9f410274d15.png

No Cups games yet though, another busy League month coming up.
