    Great work @Jogo Bonito Nice to see that straight line at the top of the chart on the home page! Assale is obviously still playing well but not quite the same goalscoring form as last season? Alex Song impressive as always on the passing stats. Never forget those perfectly weighted passes over the defence for RVP to smash home a volley. Keep it up and bring home the title!

    Great stuff once more @Jogo Bonito Good work on getting through to the CL group stages once more and the victory over Basel must have been pleasing! Its a shame the board don’t seem to be helping you out too much. Seems like a case of you don’t know what you have until you lose it. Best of luck for the season.

    I can’t stay I’ve head of any of your signings but hopefully they develop well, do a job and then can be sold on for a profit. Best of luck with your Champions League tie with Ajax, it will be tough but I have faith in you, unlike Andreas it seems..

    Great read once more @Jogo Bonito I'm guessing they wanted you to win the league then? Yourself and Basel are streets ahead compared to the rest. What are your aims for the new season? Win the league? Reach the knockout stages of the Champions League? Roger Assale seems like a great player and at a good age being 24 too. Many congratulations on your cup win!

    I think I would lose the plot, I'm bad enough managing one game at a time! So he will be 36 when the deal is up, interesting. I'm very much stuck in the Wenger way of only offering one year deals to those over the age of 30. Sounds like you've got things well planned out! I might try a game in Switzerland on FM19 and see how I get on. Looking forward to reading more updates as always!

    I have no idea how you manage to play more than one game at the same time, I would be so confused! Really low wages for a player like Song that. Going off previous I know you're very controlling over your wages which is obviously a good trait to have. How long do Hoarau and Bergen have left on their deals? Good luck for the rest of the season!

    Great stuff (as always) @Jogo Bonito When playing in smaller leagues it really does pay to look towards the future and I'm sure you'll get some good performances and good money out of your youth prospects. Alex Song is a good deal on a free, how much is he costing in wages? Good luck with the last 13 games, hopefully you can pip Basel to the title, which would be a great first season for you.
  10. @Jogo Bonito Absolutely unreal performance, congratulations on your promotion! Nice transfer budget for next season too, I'm sure you'll work well with that and bring in some very good players. P.S I see Humphrys IRL as joined Scunny on loan next season, expect to see you playing as them in FM19 at some stage?
  11. Maybe take a look at your tactics. I think the AI figures them out around that time of year so if you’re constantly playing the same way you’re open to be exposed as they set up to deal with you accordingly.
  12. You're just jinxing us all cause I've lost 2 since your comment above.
  13. Great stuff @Adzke and that regen is a great piece of luck for you. Good luck in your promotion push!
  14. That's true!
  15. *Before I start my August update I've done something stupid. I didn't load up below League Two so players I sent out on loan weren't playing games. Therefore I've had to recall Boney, Richards and Roache from loan. These players will be in the first team squad for this season now instead. Wednesday 2nd August 2017 Checkatrade Trophy Groups Drawn Blackpool have been drawn against Accrington Stanley (L2), Middlesbrough Under 23’s (U23 PD2) and Wigan Athletic (L1). Blackpool will start their Checkatrade Trophy campaign against Accrington on the 29th August 2017. Thursday 3rd August 2017 Robertson Resumes Full Training Clark Robertson has returned to full training following a groin strain. The central defender could feature in the first game of the season but will need to be closely monitored in order to minimise the risk of aggravating the injury. Saturday 5th August 2017 Bradford City 0 – 1 Blackpool (League One) Blackpool edged a narrow game against Bradford City, advanced forward Mark Cullen bagged the only goal of the game right after half time to ensure the Seasiders start the season with three points. Blackpool MOTM: Jimmy Ryan (7.7) Deep lying playmaker Ryan contributed the assist and completed 76 out of 91 passes. Tuesday 8th August 2017 Blackpool 1 – 1 Burton Albion – Burton win 3 – 4 on penalties (Carabao Cup 1st Round) Blackpool have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the first hurdle following a penalty shootout defeat to Championship side Burton Albion. Despite having the best of the game and taking the lead after 20 minutes through Max Clayton, unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Blackpool MOTM: Hamza Choudhury (7.8) Deep lying playmaker Choudhury’s passing ability was clear to see has he completed 122 out of 135 passes. Saturday 12th August 2017 Blackpool 3 – 1 MK Dons (League One) Blackpool bossed their game against MK Dons running out comfortable 3-1 winners. The highlight being a hat-trick for striker Mark Cullen, despite him also missing a penalty. Cullen missed from the spot however a minute later he made amends by tapping home. Cullen then smashed home a second on the 58th minute. A mix up in the box presented MK Dons with a chance to make it 2-1 before Cullen latched on to a long ball by Tilt and slotted home for his hat-trick on 83 minutes. Blackpool MOTM: Mark Cullen (9.1) Advanced forward Mark Cullen turned in a quality performance to end the game with three goals. Taylor Resumes Training Andy Taylor has returned to full time training following a fracture jaw which has kept him out of the start of the season. Seen as first choice left back at Blackpool, manager Timson will be delighted to see the experienced full back available again. Tuesday 15th August 2017 Blackpool Players Named in Team of the Week Blackpool goalkeeper Ben Williams and striker Mark Cullen have been selected for the League One Team of the Week following their performances between the 8th and 14th of August. Saturday 19th August 2017 Doncaster Rovers 0 – 1 Blackpool (League One) An even game was defined by a moment of quality as striker Mark Cullen picked up the ball before thundering home an effort from 23 yards on the 93rd minute. Blackpool MOTM: Mark Cullen (8.1) The striker bagged the only goal of the game with a special effort from outside the box. Wednesday 23rd August 2017 Four Players called up for International Duty Blackpool’s Emil Jaasklainen (Finland U21), Christoffer Mafoumbi (Congo), Sessi D’Almeida (Benin) and Dolly Menga (Angola) have been called up for international duty. Matches take place between the 30th August and 5th September. Friday 25th August 2017 Nathan Delfouneso injured Nathan Delfouneso has been ruled out for 8 to 10 days with pulled ankle ligaments following an attempted sprint in training. Delfouneso joins long term absentee Jim McAlister on an injury list that is currently the 21st lowest in League One. Saturday 26th August 2017 Blackpool 1 – 0 Oldham Athletic (League One) A late strike from Viv Solomon-Otabor ensured we made it 4 wins out of 4 and climbed to the top of League One. Blackpool MOTM: Sessi D’Almeida (8.3) The ball winning midfielder, in for Jay Spearing, put in a good overall display mixing his passes well and covering a lot of ground. Sessi also laid on the assist for the only goal of the game. Tuesday 29th August 2017 Blackpool 5 – 1 Accrington Stanley (Checkatrade Trophy Group B) A highly professional performance ensured we ran out comfortable winners in this game. Only Ben Williams and Jay Spearing started from the ‘strongest 11’ which gave the fringe players a run out. Kyle Vassell, starting his first game of the season got us off to a great start poking home after two minutes before Max Clayton scored a hat-trick to make it 4-1. Left back Nick Anderton added a 5th with his first goal for the club. It was also a day to remember as highly rated centre back Denzel Williams made his senior debut. Blackpool MOTM: Max Clayton (9.7) The right winger took his starting chance and came away with 3 goals and an assist. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A fantastic start to the season with 4 wins out of 4 in the league. We're looking strong in defence with only 1 goal conceded putting us at the top of the league for goals conceded as well. Goals have been harder to come by but I'm pleased that we have managed to grind out the wins when needed. The defeat to Burton wasn't warranted but it's not a competition we had any hope in so I'm not too bothered. A strong win against Accrington put's us in a good position in the Checkatrade Trophy. No additional signings were made in August which was disappointing but I just couldn't find the right player and I didn't want to waste anything or bring in a player that wasn't going to be good enough. Ideally we could have done with another central defender but I've got 3 youngsters to step in should need be.
