  1. Hi. Yes, your senior affiliate might offer you players or if you know of a player you would like and they’re interested in joining then just go about making the offer the usual way. I think you’ll find the club more willing to let you have the player on loan for nothing (no fee, wages etc) because you’re affiliated than if you was just any other club. You can also get your scout to do a team report and in turn this will generate recommendations if there are any suitable players. You can do this for first team and the U21/U19 sides.
  2. If you can get them then yes. Depends what point you’re at and whether there’s any sort of compensation to be paid. It should tell you once you enter the negotiations.
  3. SEASON 2020/2021 (SEASON 1) - END OF OCTOBER UPDATE - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Having had a good pre-season where we won 8 out of 8 matches we was ready for the new season. We go into the new campaign with a fully fit squad, having not suffered any serious injuries during pre-season. With very little expected can we put together an early run of form to erase any fears of relegation and be looking up the table rather than over our shoulders? No further transfers were made in or out during the month of October howe
  4. The good thing about this level is you don’t really have a transfer window and players can be signed at pretty much any point. I would look to get as many players in on trial (preferably for the maximum 4 weeks) as possible so you can get a proper idea of their attributes and what your staff think of them. Generally speaking a player on trial will also ask for less in wages than one you just approach. Non-contracts can be good because they don’t use as much in wages however they’re also free to walk if another club comes along. Try and avoid those contracts for your better players and li
  5. Cheers mate! Not so sure myself, don’t feel at ease with playing the way I’m set up to do but hopefully that will come with time. Good to get away from what you know sometimes though and try something different.
  6. SEASON 2020/2021 (SEASON 1) - END OF PRE-SEASON UPDATE - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Following on from the initial review of the playing staff I've decided to go with a positive 4-2-4 formation as my main tactic and a 4-4-2 for both my #2 and #3 tactics. Ideally we will spend most of the time playing the 4-2-4 and switch to the different 4-4-2 tactics depending on the opposition or/and scoreline during the match. Usually I would go with a 4-3-3 so using something different will provide me with a different challenge and pr
  7. FM21 - EASTBOURNE BOROUGH - UP THE SPORTS! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Having decided that my first save of FM21 would be at National League South side Eastbourne Borough I thought it would be a good idea to update here. The idea for the save came having watched the FA Cup First Round tie between Eastbourne Borough & Blackpool recently. Nicknamed "The Sports" (owing to their founding name of Langley Sports back in 1964) Eastbourne have spent the last 9 seasons in the Vanarama National League South. Their highest fi
  8. That’s your call to make, I wouldn’t just go off someone else’s post on this forum. You have no idea how he’s being played, what tactic or role is being used. Your game is unique and you’ll get so much more from the game if you trust your instinct and go for things with certain players than go against what you’re seeing in your game because one other person on this forum hasn’t had the same success.
  9. I think the lure of the new game is too much so I'm going to end my save there. We looked well placed to achieve another promotion/league victory and I'll be back at some point with a Stockport County FM21 thread however I think I'll look to start somewhere else first. It's been a thoroughly enjoyable save and thanks for being a part of it @Tjeerd! Hopefully see you around for another go on FM21!
  10. SEASON 2021/2022 (SEASON 3) - END OF DECEMBER - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I've finally reached the end of December having struggled for game time due to moving house. Also the excitement of FM21 dampened my enthusiasm for the game and was wondering whether to carry on but I really am enjoying the save still so here I am. It's been much more difficult this season and I can definitely see some cracks starting to show in positions that up until now have felt secure for the long term however t
  11. Brilliant start @Tjeerd! Got to be happy with that. I think just staying up would be a great achievement so definitely aim for that first and then build again during the summer. Like you say it’s going to much more difficult now and but any success you achieve will be even more sweeter!
  12. I hadn't realised you had signed them, had to go back and double check just now. It's starting to become a little harder now and certain players that I wanted to give the chance to step up haven't produced unfortunately. I don't see us winning the league this season but our goal is just to avoid relegation so I'd still be happy if we only managed that.
  13. SEASON 2021/2022 (SEASON 3) - END OF AUGUST - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Having won back to back league titles we started our third season in charge of Stockport in League One. We was in different company now with no less than 8 former Premier League sides in the competition. Expectations were once against to try and avoid relegation so we have no pressure on us to succeed. The season preview saw us placed 24 out of 24, exactly the same position as last year but we know how that worked out.
  14. Nice work @Tjeerd! Squad looks good. Best of luck for the start of your Premier League adventure!
