  1. Just limping to the end of my second season and hoping that the finances aren't going to end up having a final say on things. Does anyone know how bad it has to get before a club goes into administration?
  2. Truro City - Season 2021/22 - National League South - 7th Season Review - With mid table expectations, we managed to sneak a play off spot with a 6 match unbeaten run at the end of the season. I always see the first season as one to establish a core squad to build on the following season but could we go a step further? League - (Fixtures 1) (Fixtures 2) (Positions) The media always commented that we couldn't get any form going and, in fairness, I think that is the right assessment. Fits and bursts but one thing you could count on was our tendency to concede goals. Play offs
  3. Just managed to snatch a play off spot in the last few games of the season. Along with a fairly exciting "golden generation" youth intake has definitely made this save feel like its going to be a good one.
  4. After a false start with Kings Langley, I've decided to do a replay of last year and have another attempt with Truro. Finding FM21 to be much more enjoyable than FM20 so hoping this year I'll be able to stick this save out!
  5. Truro City - Season 2021/22 - National League South - 2nd Season Review - I went into this season off the back of making the play offs last year, only to crash out at the first hurdle. I was happy enough with the core of the squad and knew with a few signings we could make the play offs again and hopefully go one step further. League - (Fixtures 1) (Fixtures 2) (Fixtures 3) (Positions) We sat top of the pile for a brief moment early on in the season but after that we maintained a play off spot. We made 2nd place ours and with that we move onto the play offs. Could we make up for
  6. Truro City - Season 2020/21 - National League South - 6th Season Review - I feel the season was really a story of FM20. It was played through 3 different patches and things went differently with each one. Had I managed to finish the season during the public beta things may have ended a lot differently but then maybe the patch would have hit even harder if it had? Anyway, after a small hiatus I can at least say the first season is done and things can hopefully settle down now. League - (Fixtures 1) (Fixtures 2) (Fixtures 3) (Positions) Can you tell when my game updated from the p
  7. I can't say I've had the best of times with FM20. Probably the most enjoyable period I have had was with the public beta back in January. Sadly that came to an end and I had a bit of a break from the game yet again. However, the pull of the game was too much and I have just managed to finish my first season with Truro and have managed to make the play offs. In all my years doing this challenge I think this is only the second time I have made it to them. Fingers crossed for a happy ending!
  8. I've just observed some very odd behaviour from two of my players when defending a corner kick. All my defending corner instructions are the default. Dickinson (no. 3) is standing at the near post like he should. For some reason Jephcott (no. 17) comes walking towards the near post and it seems that the two are pushed into the net. At this point they appear to be completely inactive and stay there for the corner and the attack after. When I end up getting a corner they wake up. It looked like they had merged together when watching on 2D classic. Dickinson, my DL, was set to 'Mark near p
  9. I've had a little time to settle down with the public beta and I'm enjoying it a lot more than the official patch. I debated doing other saves or choosing a different team but I feel like I've got unfinished business down South West. So I'm back with another shot with Truro and hopefully this time I will have a bit more joy with the ME...
  10. Thus ends my time as Truro manager. Not because of relegation. Not because of results (though I'm sure that was only a matter of time). But because I didn't drop our best left back despite promising the board I would do so. Obviously not playing him for a single match wasn't deemed as sufficient enough. Oh well... That has to have been one of the worst times I have had playing FM. I cannot work out if my tactic was to blame or my players. Things were going ok until December and then it was as if my strikers all just forgot how to score. I think it was 3 goals from them in total since then
  11. What would people consider to be the easiest and hardest teams to manage for this challenge? I'm struggling through my second season as Truro, due to my ability to play the game more than likely, and I'm getting the impression that improving the squad is going to be very difficult given few players are willing to relocate to Cornwall. I would guess London based teams would be significantly easier.
  12. Truro City - Season 2020/21 - National League South - 11th Season Review - I was nervous at the start that the board expected too much of me. In the end we did what we needed to do where it mattered. Obviously I managed to impress people as I somehow ended up winning Manager of the Year. Now my fanboys and I can look ahead to a bright future of eventual Cornish dominance. League - (Fixtures 1) (Fixtures 2) (Fixtures 3) (Positions) The board wanted top half, the board got top half. Cups - (FA Cup) (FA Trophy) Perhaps I was too willing to rotate in some of these matches
  13. After missing FM19, I'm jumping back this year with Truro City. Slightly concerned that I won't be able to meet the expectation of a top half finish but I am comforted that at least one fan doesn't consider my reign as something to dread.
  14. It was enjoyable while it lasted. Don’t think we disgraced ourselves at all but if you can’t score goals from open play you are eventually going to be found out.
