  1. Welcome back Uwe, enjoyed your tactics in previous iterations. Been watching the Sunderland documentary on Netflix and am starting to get strong urges to sort them out in FM
  2. Could you also holiday for a season, reload until the club side get promoted and then take over? That way you'd be able to be eligible for both this challenge and the Youth Academy Challenge
  3. @darren1983 - would the san marino challenge be allowed for the youth challenge as well? You have to DL a custom DB to enable serie D, so no holidaying..
  4. So, halfway through the first season with Yverdon League Table Also had this guy who was a youth candidate in 2018.. Jacky Gerard - Whilst his attributes aren't amazing, he's playing well and scoring goals I'm not certain whether I should really push for promotion, there's only one league above and it's likely we'd be relegated straight away. @theBlackPrince - I took Grantham to the Champions League a few iterations ago. Fun team to play as. I went to see them play last season too!
  5. Think this will be the first time I've managed in Switzerland Yverdon FC
  6. @XaW this is the beauty of FM, we are both running the same version but have the opposite challenge. I play a relatively direct 433 (Narrow), the general play isn't very sexy. We invite pressure then hit on the break. We struggle a little against teams that sit back, however we only tend to face those tactics once our rep catches up
  7. @XaW, @The Art of Drowning Not just related to dulwich, I'm pretty sure you can exploit your low reputation in the game. For the the first half of each season (after promotion), you'll find the majority of teams play in an attacking way against you making it really easy to counter and win games. It seems to settle at around the half way point in the season (reputations update?). It seems the AI gets this too. Barrow are doing their own mini challenge and went from the National League to League One with back to back promotions. They're tactic sets them up to hit teams on the break and overload the oppositions defence when countering. I'm joint top in league one after back to back promotions all the way so far. The only reason I'm not miles ahead is I'm still in all the cups (checkatrade, league cup quarters and fa cup 3rd round) and my players are exhausted.
  8. You might want to start again mate. I had that with Frome Town and it was impossible
  9. In my Grantham save, the core players were decent (Lee Shaw, Galinski, Hempenshall)
  10. 2 fbs, 2 cds, mez, CM, dlfs and a poacher Attacking and I can't remember the shouts :). Make sure the dlfs are fast and can cross
  11. Sorry to step on your toes @XaW 1. I had considerable debt after the first season with Grantham, the wage budget was still increased after promotion and managed to get them to expand the youth recruitment and go on a coaching course. When I play this challenge I do expand my youth bits but it can be pointless, the chances of getting a decent Regen that'll keep up with your promotions through the leagues is so Slim, you could argue that the expenditure is pointless 2. Nothing in League 1 yet, but I do make my assman arrange weekly friendlies for both the u18s and u23s 3. See point 2. I believe you get u23s in the championship or premier league 4. Always used 433 and it hasn't failed me..score more than the other team regardless of needing to defend is my general tactic

Is it wrong that I'm disappointed in coming second?! It was a fair position, we only spent 5 weeks at 1st place, AFC Wimbledon were top for the rest of the time. We actually pulled in front of them towards the end of the season, however with injuries to two of my strikers, we were left with a full back and a youth player (who did pretty well!) upfront. Our form slipped and we ended up second. Fantastic little cup run, knocking out Manchester City in the 3rd round, before being stuffed by Championship side Brighton. The board has just signed off on a 1k seat expansion at our new stadium, we'll be able to house ~5.1k supporters before the new season starts. The Gingerbread Men march on. @High Flying Dwarf tagged
