Hey everyone I'm Joey. I started my youtube channel few weeks ago and I'm slowly progressing with my videos. In my first 2 videos I had some issues with not loud enough audio for phones but sorted that out, there are also 10 episodes out already as of this writing I'm going to post them in the first two posts rest are coming in soon. Anyway,
I decided to start non-league to legend series for youtube because I love playing FM, I play it for quite some time now and I'm hoping to bring something new to fm youtube scenery.
I started with Curzon Ashton I'm not from England originally but I love lower leagues in England so I started there. I hoping to get to the top slowly, maybe I won't succeed but I'll have fun trying. If you want to have some fun please feel free to check out my videos.
Immediately I noticed we have 4 very good players on the but we have no budget. Striker Adam Morgan, goalkeeper Hakan Burton, midfielder Tomsett, defender John Hunt real veteran of the team. So basically we had little of everything. We start hiring scouts left and right we have nothing in the team not even physios. Later on I checked we have the smallest budget of them all and.... almost no fans, one of the lowest attendances in the league. So if I want to return that loan I should be very creative with my budget.
//Expect some low volume on first two videos. Rest are okay.
EP1: Season preview
After quite few matches and changes to tactic I've decided to stick with defensive minded 4-3-1-2 in friendlies we were pretty poor buuut we mostly played against poor teams against which this wouldn't work well, we were very unstable. After all the transfers we kind of had a team but still only 1 quality striker that is Adam Morgan.
We couldn't have asked for worse opponent in the first match, it's Kidderminster team that is aiming for the top of the league. While we are scrambling for survival.
To my surprise tactic is working amazingly, we are currently 3rd in the league with only one loss. Can we actually do it and stay in the league maybe even surprise people?!? Is that even possible??? Next two league games are against Altrincham and Salford we should be beating both of them based on results before but team is very shaky in defence, I don't know how to fix it... Maybe dropping defense a bit deeper and no offside trap? John Hunt is great player but very slow. I don't know about our defense yet. We didn't do any transfers or anything after start of the season and we have lowest salary in the league. How are we doing it? Can we keep going here? Or will Altrincham and Salford get us from the clouds... See everything in the next episode.
After quite good start we are losing momentum a little bit can we get it back? Last two matches ended in a draw, we are hoping to bounce back in cup and make a little of a run since we are in dire need of money, we have no attendance and even with lowest budget in the league we are still losing some money.
Can we start with a good cup run? Can we beat Stockport to go for promotion in the league? Find out in next video:
After bad FA Cup match can we make better impression in FA Trophy and gain some of the very needed money? Or is it going to be a dissapointment? Find out in the next video.
We are also playing against Boston with hopes to establish ourselves in the playoff position.
//Rest of first season coming below.
Any suggestion/criticism is welcome.
Best Regards, Joey
P.S. New video coming out tomorow, rest are gonna come with 2-3 days in between.
