  1. I love this thread. I believe if you were streaming on twitch or something doing this, I for one would be glued (when I got time).
  2. Also if you have any tips on how to go around the amateur side of things, please express them. I'm also just sorting the layout of how I want to post things so please bare with me.
  3. League Preview 2016/2017 (Current teams within the league) The local media has predicted us to finish 3rd in the league however, with all teams evenly matched it can end up being a shock. Throughout this season, attributes of players mean very little for me and I'll be more focused on form, morale and condition, training effort of the player. Amateur football is more focused around those three things, rather on abilities. I can lose players at anytime and gain a player due to amateur contracts so keeping a hold of my players will be merely impossible so keeping them happy is priority. I've brought in one player from local rivals Lincoln Courts, which I seem quite a good 1 season signing, for experience and determination. Irish Junior Cup. This cup is probably the biggest amateur cup within Northern Ireland, with over 400+ entries and a world reputation ranking of 203rd. It is not my priority however, it will feel good to at least hit my board expectation of reaching the third round. IJC - Round 1. So, before the league even starts we have our first round. I've been looking forward to this for a while, first round against.. Carryduff are quite a decent side and I was rated underdogs going into this match up. Formations with my squad won't suit this kind of match so I had to try and approach something different so decided to go with a 4-3-1-2. McCann is off to a flyer! Here comes round 2..
  4. (Current profile) Hi guys. I'm starting a new save on FM17 with the Northern Irish league expansion pack so I thought I would post my career on here. I guess I want to do this because starting from nothing to something seems nice. So, if I start with an amateur club with nothing it gives me a challenge after all Northern Ireland have a lot of league systems to conquer. However, the aim of the game is to get an amateur club to a professional status, but I won't guarentee to stay with the club I first pick, after all if I want it a little realistic, I will follow the money. I picked Caw because it is a relatively local club for me and it'll be nice to get them to win the North West Junior Premier League. Brief overview of the competition; Post below will describe the competitions in detail. I look forward to further posts where I will post regarding my great staff(:/) and players.
  5. I haven't had a youth intake on FM17 yet but I'd usually focus on the ones who show potential to be a value to sell on or keep.
  6. I don't think there is an actual rule though. At least 1 derby usually happens on the second game of the season I think.
  7. How'd you concede? Maybe you can adapt to that if it was common.
  8. Personally mate, you can't expect a real answer for that. There's no detail on how city play, how you play, what your weak/vulnerable areas are and vice versa with Man City. Who's their key player? Who's the top goal scorer? I'd personally place one of my best defensive midfielders on to man mark their main attacking threat. But on the other note, that's one hell of a table!
  9. What's everyone's input into changing tactics every game? Majority keep the same shape though change roles and etc. I'm more keen into changing tactics, shape, how we play. All things considered I am playing in EFL league 2 and it seems to work wonders if I get it right based off the pre-match analysis. Played 13 games, lost 2 due to my judgement solely (made horrible calls). What's everyone's input?
  10. I'd probably play on normal tempo to see how it plays out. Is your WB on attack or support? Also the best of luck to you mate. I look forward to seeing the progress.
  11. I create 3 shapes and adapt my formation and roles to each game I play to stay unpredictable and to try and play myself to their weakness. For example if they have 5 at the back, I'd personally go strikerless and play a 4 3 3 0 narrow. I'd play central to their 5 at the back cause I know they will have a man less in that central of the park and drags one of them out to try and cover for that spare man which makes it easier for my players to slot a through ball in.
  12. They ain't that bad in game. I just get every request I make denied. Other than that I hear nothing lol. Oh and too add to that Oyston won't leave the club of his own volition.
  13. Awesome work mate. I Have had very little time to play and have promised updates regarding my blackpool save. I'll try tonight or tomorrow to get it up. I can say Payne, Cain and McCalister are the trio to go with.
