  1. Due to personal reasons I won't be able to play football manager for a while, so I thought I'd leave a quick update in this thread. We ended up making it to the playoff final and experienced one of the craziest finals I've ever seen. I'll post a full season update when I come back to FM, but for now I can enjoy our status as a premier league team without worrying about how we're going to get thrashed every game. Oh, and good luck to all those starting new games.
  2. That’s interesting. I guess I’ll have to wait until I get to the premier league as my facilities must not be good enough yet. Thanks for the info. Thanks. The finances are looking quite good at the moment, but only keeping them up due to occasional player sales. Hopefully I’ll be able to get one or two more improvements to my facilities too with the spare cash. @darren1983 unlucky with the sacking. The first few seasons are always the hardest and really tough when you lose key players early on
  3. Hereford Season 12: 2029-30 - 3rd in Championship Competitions: An unbelievable first season for us as we flirted with the promotion places and ended up finishing in 3rd. The league positions graph highlights how the season went, with an up and down start before we went on a fantastic run of form, eventually slipping up slightly at the end of the season. We went into the playoffs full of confidence and we faced Ipswich away in the first leg. For some reason though we just didn't turn up and they dispatched us 3-0. In the second leg we capitulated again and lost 3-0 at home. Terrible way t
  4. Anyone else had the issue where you don’t have an Under 23 team at all? When I started the save I thought we’d get one as we progressed up the league but I still haven’t got one and have not been able to request one. We only have an under 18 squad as well as the first team squad and this is getting quite awkward now as we’re in the championship now. Has anyone else seen this before and is it a bug? Can’t seem to find anyone with the same issue anywhere online. It’s not a game breaking issue but it is quite annoying for keeping up match fitness etc.
  5. Unbelievable. Currently in February in our first season in the championship and we’re fighting it out for promotion and in third place. The table is really tight at the top but the players just keep defying expectations. It’s definitely too early for us to get promoted but we’ll keep fighting to the end and whatever happens happens. Still amazed by where we are though.
  6. @darren1983 a belated Merry Christmas to you and everyone else too, good to have you back in the mix. Good luck! @fairsy congrats on staying up, now time to push on! @fabreth congrats on promotion!
  7. Hereford Season 11: 2028-29 - 2nd in League 1 Competitions: We are really on a roll now, our third successive promotion as we finish second in league 1. We had an up and down start as we adapted to the league but then found our consistency and stayed in second for the majority of the season. In the FA cup we came up against Man Utd away in the fourth round, and this was a real welcome boost to the finances. We gave a good account of ourselves and went down 3-1, with them scoring their third in the last minute. Finances: The away trip to Man Utd was a real boost to the finances, whic
  8. I know how you feel. Just finished training my player to play in multiple positions in my team and he gets sold by my chairman. No back up players coming though the ranks. Grrrr
  9. My Chairman decided to sell Neil Fisher 8A to Newcastle for 1.3m rising to 2.6m with clauses. Couldn’t even protest it. Pretty gutted to be honest, I had brought him through to replace Craig Mitchell 6C who I sold last January, and he was probably my best young player. We’re looking pretty short in depth on the wings now , and (spoilers) I just had an FA cup clash away at Man Utd so we didn’t need the money.
  10. Thanks, but it did take me 4 years to get out of the Vanarama South and 5 to get out of the Vanarama national. Once things start to click and you've upped your average age a bit it can make a huge difference. Keep plugging away! @XaW You're a lot braver than me going for Northern Ireland! Losing Jay Elliot looks a big blow . Already in the top tier though, congrats, think you can compete?
  11. Hereford Season 10: 2027-28 - 2nd in League 2 Competitions: A great season for us as we adapted to league 2 very quickly and ended in second position. We were pushing at the top of the league right from the start of the season and battled with York for the top spot. Martin Sockett 4E once again led the line with 48 goals and 26 assists in 45 games. Finances: Our finances were plummeting in the first half of the season due to us upgrading from category 4 to 3 at the start of the season, and we losing money rapidly. I decided to sell Craig Mitchell 6C in January for 1.4m to help ease
  12. That’s a good point actually, it always seems to be the deals with loads of add ons/sell on fees that the board accepts. Fingers crossed you can make it out of league 1, shame about Bailey leaving on a free though.
  13. Yeah it’s very strange, my board make some weird decisions sometimes. They’ll let me reject £1m+ bids for him, but then will accept £100-200k for my best prospects. I guess it’s better that way round so I can’t really complain.
  14. Not had any time to post an update in a while, so I'll try and shorten down the seasons I've played since my last update (sorry I forgot a lot of screenshots): Hereford Season 6: 2023-24 - 7th in Vanarama National We finished in seventh, and headed into the playoffs against Billericay away. We beat them 3-1 to set up a semi final against port vale. Unfortunately they were too strong for us and won 1-0. The best prospects from the intake were Dominic Page 6A, Paddy McCabe 6B, Craig Mitchell 6C and Joe Grainger 6D. A really solid intake. Hereford Season 7: 2024-25 - 10
  15. Hereford Season 5: 2022-23 - 4th in Vanarama National Competitions: We adapted to the league a lot better than I was expecting, and started the season very well. We had a dip in form after this, but then stayed pretty consistent for the rest of the season. We lost both of our keepers around halfway through the season which was a big setback, but we finished the season with a couple of wins and ended in a fantastic 4th place. In the first play off game we were at home to Lincoln, and we absolutely dominated the game, but they scored twice from corners and came away with the win. Talk ab
