  1. I had high hopes of getting off the mark win wise with a game against non-league Godmanchester in our 3rd of 6 pre-season games.


    A lot closer than I wanted and I didn't expect to be 2 goals down either. More players are clearly needed.

    Here's a couple signed just before our 4th game.




    Thankfully Raunds weren't a match for us.

  2. A little bit more was spent on this half decent midfielder.


    Sadly my hopes of bringing in a keeper were dashed when he did his cruciate ligaments in just before signing.

    Next up was League 2 Cambridge Utd


    A surprisingly 50/50 encounter spoiled by Cambridge being lethal in front of goal.

  3. What is it with all these cops? I wonder how many clubs they have.


    This time Egypt and they finished 14th in their Premier last season.

    A few transfers were needed as without them I think we would have just gone straight back down.


    Then up came our first pre-season friendly...


    Needless to say I'm not too happy.

  4. I forgot to mention that I ran the game for 1 season before starting with St. Neots.

    During that 1st season there was news of a Welsh Tycoon. Did he take on Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham? Maybe a League of Wales club?

    Nope! He went here to spend his millions...


    That's in the Soloman Islands by the way. They finished 2nd in their league.

  5. The board don't expect much


    The daily mirror clearly knew something I didn't.


    It will also be interesting to see if English clubs will still dominate a full on game.

    Disappointingly though the 1st Champions League Final


    Sadly these players won'y agree new deals making my job more difficult


  6. Now I have a bazzing laptop it is time to play FM the way it is meant to be played.


    The idea of this epic is a simple rags to riches career with the whole World to compete with.

    Who have I chosen to one day rule the FM World?


    My poor stats at the start weren't going to help me and to be fair I hadn't got that much experience either.



    So with a fast beating heart it was time to take a look at the club.

    A quick chat with the chairman told me some details and general information. Then I went out and checked the facilities.




    An overview of what was available to me was given by the Chairman along with the club's financial standing.



    I found out our odds on getting the title with a quick ring to the local bookie. It was looking bleak.


    Then it was time to meet the staff and the guys tasked with helping us survive the 1st season.


    I then sat down and began to plan...


    Because this game is a little slower I intend posting as I go. The moment anything happens worthy of a post, I'll post. So not the run of the mill end of seasons reports.

  7. I think there are two valid reasons to fine a player:

    Straight red = Two weeks wages. Expecption to the rule: Assistant thinks that the red was not deserved. Then i appeal and only fine 1 week wages.

    Missing training = Two weeks wages

    For bad performance i never fine or warn players. If a player is in a bad form, i take it to a private chat and depending on the player, i am either harsh or supportive.

    If player has one bad performance, i don't do anything. Anyone can have a bad day.

    Warnings i give if player gets sent out after two yellow cards.

    I do almost the same except if a player is sent off for a professional foul they get a 1 week wages fine. If the assistant thinks the reds are not deserved then I do nothing and appeal.

  8. I've always believed that from the Championship down all clubs should only be able to bring in "HG" players.

    Foreigners in the Premier is fair enough but not the second tier down.

    That said in answer to the original question. The rules changed a couple of seasons ago for work permits. You are given a permit for the duration of the contract. After that if you do not qualify for a work permit then tough. Even if he is with the same club you paid £10m for. If he wouldn't qualify for a work permit you cannot renegotiate his next contract. Came as an annoying shock when I wasn't allowed to even offer a contract to one of our own players that I had high hopes for.

  9. I hope this does not get lost in this huge thread but I have just bought Out of the Park Baseball and I'm amazed about the brilliance of their fictional leagues whereby you can set up the baseball world in anyway you see fit.

    Now I would love to see FM implement this, it's brilliant.

    Currently managing the Bolton Iron Camels in the English Major Baseball League in which 200 clubs compete. :D
