  1. Woah that sucks. Good luck in the playoffs, are you going to make sure you finish 3rd or just not top 2?
  2. Scarborough Athletic 2020/21 Table l Sqaud l Transfers Very good season which culmanated with promotion to the Vanarama National League. After being top of the league through the beginning of January, Stockport went on this crazy run of reasults where they only dropped 10 points in the new year. We finished in 2nd place on 86 points, with 2nd best attack and 3rd best defense. In the playoff we first faced off against Spennymoor dispatching easily. Then in the final we played 3rd place Darlington in victory that went to extra-time. The cup run was what the board expected of us, with a loss in the FA Cup 4th Qualifying round loss to VNL Tranmere, and in the FA Trophy 1st Round to VNN AFC Telford. Financially we look better than we should due to a takeover by a tycoon who put in a $100k. We also a crazy 4 minutes regarding our stadium, accourding to the facilities page its being planned but the board page shows nothing, so who knows. Very good year from the boys, led by Will Annan with his 16 goals and 26 assist, Marcus Sheldon with 19 goals and 5 assists, and Michael Coulson with 21 goals and 6 assists.

  3. Scarborough Athletic So I decided to join in on the challenge, as I like LLM and usually don't play with the attributes hidden. As you can see there is my manager man, all nice and crap. I am going to impose some transfer rules for when we reach the football league. 1) No more than 6 signings in a season. This number does not change, no matter the number of sales. 2) No more than 3 foreign (any player outside the UK) signings in a season. 3) Foreign signings must be 20 y/o or older. 2019/20 Table l Squad l Transfers Had an inconsistent start to the season either winning or lossing and no inbetween until October. Then draws and losses were in vogue with the side, which dictated a change in tactic going to a 4-4-2. Suddenly the December and January matches were filled with victories and goals, the side full of confidence and attacking fever. With February the goals dried up and the defense was weak, resulting in four losses in the five matches played. With some tinkering in the roles, boys won five of the last nine to end the season and sneak into the playoffs. Unfortunatly, this playoff result happened. The cup run was very good, making the FA Cup first round lossing to L2 Tranmere and the second round of the FA Trophy, lossing to VNL Wrexham. The boys performed admirably in a season predicted to be a relagation fight. Will Annan was the standout player this year, contributing 16 goals and 20 assists, being the main catalyst in the side. Michael Coulson lead the line with 21 goals, most of which came in a front 2, and 6 assists. A good number of transfers as the side needed some filling out, especially in the defense. Financially, the club is in a good position with $172k in the bank and room to increase the wage budget. The club decided to groundshare because we do not meet stadium requirements, which isn't impossible. Oddly, they settled on Goole, a 1 hour drive from Scarborough.

  4. End of Season Ok end of the year with four straight wins, three in the league and one in Europa League. Then the draw to CSKA Moscow and terrible loss to Everton. Better matches versus Man City, where Duda got injured for the rest of the season, and a big second half at Sporting. We confirm Champions League after the match with Man City, so we played a few u18s against Newcastle and rotated for the second leg against Sporting to go to the final. Good way to send the home support off for the summer with a 2-0 win against West Ham.
  5. Yes but we've had to rotate more than ever and are starting to grind some matches out now. First off I want to apologize for the lack of updates lately. My grandmother passed recently and was finishing my final class for my bachelors degree, so FM was the last thing on my mind. February & March So so in the league with wins against Leicester, Arsenal, and Crystal Palace (after going down to 10 men early), a bad draw at home to Southampton, and some heart breaking losses to Chelsea, Man Utd, and Tottenham. Beat Brighton to win our second straight EFL Cup trophy, and are through to the quarter finals against CSKA Moscow. League Table Nine points ahead of Arsenal, six back of United which means that with seven games to go we will most likely finish fourth. Great season so far, the best of the save with all the different competitions we're in now. Youth Intake Best youth intake we've had since being in the Premier League, unfortunately in positions that we are deepest in.
  6. Fantastic season, great save so far, hopefully you can get the national team full of Saint Andreu players at some point.
  7. Forgive me if you have already shown them, but can you give us the results of World Cups and other big international competitions? Thanks.
  8. Transfers Out Two outs in the January, with Rump going to Crystal Palace for $6.5m after he complained about a lack of playing time. Marcos Vinicius leaves for Aston Villa for $1.6m plus add-ons, suffered an injury last season and never recovered. Few youngster also left on loan this month. December & January Fantastic two months going undefeated in the league and the only loss being to West Ham in the FA Cup. Lots of rotation over this period and the boys step up to the challenge. With the additions in January, I feel that we are the deepest we've ever been. Through to the EFL Cup final for the second year in a row, this time against Brighton. Premeir League We catapult to third now, sandwitched between the two Manchester clubs. I'm just hoping for Champions League next season, so anywhere 1 through 4 is acceptable. Europa League The one match over this period, a win against Ajax, confirm the group win. This sets up a tie against Celtic. Player Updates Just wanted to post some update shots of our longer serving players at the club. There will be more over the next few posts.
  9. Yes, yes we are, you'll see later This update will be dealing with transfers, awards, and the like. The December and January period is filled with matches and took a couple of days away from the game. Awards Mario Dill wins the Kopa Trophy for the best young player in the world. Eridson Cande won both CAF Young Player of the Year, African Footballer of the Year, and was named to the African XI of the Year. Transfers We brought in 7 players in the January, all young players of which only two are registered for the Premier League. Only Matek and Acuna are registered for the league, the rest will be in the youth teams and hopefully go on loan next season.
  10. October & November An okay October that started off with an uninspired draw against Ajax, followed by a 1-0 win versus Bournemouth off a stunning Volkovic free kick. Then came an incredible comeback against Totenham, down 2-0 after 24 minutes and some tactical changes, we managed to pull two back for the draw. Fustrated with Man Utd reasult as we were the better team on the night and Crawford was a foot away from the goal line with a tap in, only for the defender to tackle it away. A perfect November was started with a late comeback against Southampton and beating ten-men Arsenal. League Table Through 13 matches we sit in 4th place on 29 points. It seems that none of the top 5 want to drop points this season and we will have to be as close to perfect to qualify for Champions League. Europa League With one match remaining in the group we sit at the top with 4 wins and 1 draw. The depth of the squad has come up huge in all campaigns with some players performing better than I expected.
  11. They're a tough group to crack and with us being in Europa League its going to be hard but we'll give it a try. August & September Great start to the season with only one loss so far. Won an incredible back and forth match against Liverpool, combined with a superb match by Dill versus Stoke we were flying. Then Dill got shin splints in that match that will keep him out for two months, so now we're missing two starters with Valkovic picking up an injury before the start of the season. Fustrating matches against Ipswich and Chelsea, a game in which Chelsea scored on their first three shots on target. A late goal against RB Salzburg saw us on top in a match that we dominated. The kids came through with an emphatic result against Southend with Eduardo Torres scoring a hat trick in his first appearance. League Table We sit in 5th on 16 points but the top four have not lost a match, with Tottenham going a perfect 7 for 7 with 20 goals scored to 0 conceded. Europa League We sit top of the group after one match. Kind of a mixed group with Ajax who could be tough but with teams like Salzburg and Viitorul that should be beaten.
  12. According to the game they tied for the lowest point total and have most losses in league history. Transfers Only player to leave for money is Nathan Willams, a goalkeeper, for $750k. Most of the players brought in are backups and young players. Preseason Good enough preseason, we beat Barcelona if that means anything. Preseason Prediction We're not predicted to be relagated for once.
  13. April & May Almost perfect April with the draw to Liverpool being the only belimish combined with wins over Arsenal, Southampton, and Blackburn, where Mario Dill scored four goals. May saw two defeats to Watford and Man City to end the year. League Table We finsh the year in 5th place tied on points with Brighton, who had an incredible defense and won a ton of 1-0 matches, on 69 points. Tottenham won the league again followed by Arsenal and the two Manchester clubs. Liverpool finish in 12th after a terrible season and Blackburn can only gain 10 points. End of Season Yes, I know, I'm great. Mario Dill wins player of the season and young player of the season in an incredible campaign. Monteiro is the signing of the season, it was between him and Duda. Good performances in the league and EFL Cup but disappointing reasult in the FA Cup. Averaged almost 16,000 in attendence, something that will improve with a new staduim being opened next season. Squad Stats Mario Dill made 42 apperances scoring 15 goals with 14 assists from the right wing. Cande took over the starting role midway through the season, scoring 23 goals to lead the team. Crawford with 16 goals in a nice season for him. Blaney still holds on to the goalkeeping position but not for long as Subtrinca should start to overtake him soon. Looking ahead we need another AMR, AMC, AML, and DC mainly for fitness reasons as a few players started to feel jaded this year. Will try to move Gomboc because theres no place for him in the squad.
  14. Ya Blackburn are terrible, and Liverpool are just old I mean Alisson is still in goal for them. February and March Good two months with an almost perfect month in February with wins against Newcastle, Bournemouth, and Chelsea, and a draw versus West Ham. Lost to Brighton in the FA Cup with highly rotated squad due to fixture congestion. March saw two wins and two draws. League Table 59 points from 32 matches this campaign, we already have a new high in points and goals scored. Youth Intake Ok intake with Kyle Pemberton being the only standout, while Matthew McCaughan might make it. Two Serbs and a Korean in this intake from our affiliates. Right now Pemberton looks a better winger than striker but good physicals and a nice lauching point on his techincal and mental attributes. If McCaughan ever makes it to the first team, we might have him take free kicks and penalties.
  15. EFL Cup Final After a back and forth final, where Dill, Monteiro, and Cande came off due to injuries, a 91st minute winner from Crawford sends us to Europe for the first time ever.
