  1. Anyone Just starting and looking for a Centre Mid have a look at Matt Carter he has won my player of the year every year and is just Mr Reliable. I have played him as a Box to Box or Centre mid on support. Here is a current screenshot in my 6th season
  2. Carshalton Athletic - Vanarama National - 2024/25 League- Our first season in the Vanarama National and early on look as we could have been in for a long season losing 4 1st team starters. We got off to a decent start winning 5, drawing 2 and losing 3 had us sitting just outside the playoffs. A very inconsistent winter saw us slowly fall away from the playoffs and a shocking end to the season only winning 2 games in the last 17 fixtures we ended a respectable 13th. Player of the Year / Most Assists / Top AvRating - Matt Carter Young Player of the Year / Top Goalscorer - Fabio Lopes (loan) Cups- With promotion sealed the season before and the very good start to the season i could get back to concentrating on getting as far as possible in the cups. Financially we were struggling so a cup run was a must, Bath took us to a replay in the last qualifying round where we overcame then to be drawn against Scunthorpe are Home winning 1-0 in a very strong performance against league Opposition. We then were drawn against more league opposition in Hull who underestimated us by sending a reserve squad we just scrapped pass with a smash and grab performance 1-0. The third round saw us drawn against York who we beat convincingly 3-0 giving us a 4th round (club record) tie away at West Ham. A game we were never in we lost 2-0 and were very lucky to keep it that low! The cup run saw us hit 1 million in the bank and the future of the club secure for the next few seasons!

  3. Carshalton Athletic - Vanarama National South - 2023/24 League- With the disappointment of the loss in the playoffs last season we set out to push for the league this season. With a few key players in the last year of their contract looking for a bigger challenge i thought we may get a bit of unrest as i decided to ignore most of their request, Fortunately it didn't effect the squad that much as the team leaders spoke most of them around and we got of to a flying start. 28 games undefeated and we had a strong lead at the top going into January where we lost our first game. We manage to claim the Title with 5 games remaining going the whole season only losing 4 times. Player of the Year / Most Assists / Top AvRating - Matt Carter Young Player of the Year - Josh Martin Top Goalscorer - James Norwood Cups- Made the first round of both cups, FA Cup we lost to league side Rotherham and lost to Oxford City in the FA Trophy.

  4. Yea cup runs are what i concentrate on early as clubs always struggle financially. November and December seem to be the months my league form takes a dive with all the rotation and tired players. Thinking of prioritising the league this season just to take that next step.
  5. Carshalton Athletic - Vanarama National South - 2022/23 League- After missing out on the playoffs last season the media predicted us to finish 4th. A strong start to the season saw us sitting in the playoff all season whilst never really pushing for automatic promotion we finished exactly where the media predicted 4th and embarked on our first playoff campaign. Playoffs- First up we had Dorking Wanderers a goal late in the first half gave us the lead and despite holding on for most of the second half we scrapped through with our keeper bagiing the MOM, Then we had our local rivals Bromley in the semis. We took an early lead only to be pegged back and went in at half time 1-1. Bromley scored to go 2-1 up but 2 quick goals in the 70 and 75th minute gave us the victory in a pretty even game. The final was one of those games where we just copuldnt score the game went to penalties after a 0-0 draw and we lost 4-3 Player of the Year / Most Assists - Matt Carter Young Player of the Year - Callum Watts Top Goalscorer - Rhys Kavanagh Top AvRating - James Norwood Cups- A good showing in the FA Cup again losing to Birmingham in the 3rd Round after defeating Salford and Bromley to reach them.

  6. Carshalton Athletic - Vanarama National South - 2021/22 League- Predicted to finish 7th we made a flying start to the season only losing once in August and going undefeated in september. We then hit the winter run and the wheels fell off during a tough FA cup run, the league title started to turn into a struggle to stay in the playoffs. With only 3 wins in our last 10 games we finished 8th 2 Points off the playoffs. Player of the Year / Young Player of the Year / Most Assists / Top AvRating - Matt Carter Top Goalscorer - Lewis walker Cups- A massive run in the FA Cup again beating Non League Bridgewater, Lewes and Torquay in the qualifying rounds to set up a Home tie with Bristol Rovers in the 1st round. They were struggling in League 2 and put out a young side which we took advantage of and won 3-1. Next up was Exeter also struggling in League 2 we managed to FM them and win with our only shots on target whilst my keeper pulled of a MOM performance we had reached the FA Cup 3rd round pulling Man U out the hat at home. They demolished us 8-0.

  7. So made it to the 3rd round of the FA Cup rewarded with a home tie against non other than Man Utd.👀👀👀 Lets hope my s**thouse tactic does the same to them as it did to Bristol Rovers and Exeter aswell as them putting out the kids!
  8. Cheers, Yea looking to make playoffs media predicting 7th after preseason transfers currently top in late September but looking like a tight league this year, squad is a lot better than last season so hopefully stick it out this time and not fall away. I am off work until the 13th so looks like i should be able to get some serious game time in!
  9. Carshalton Athletic - Vanarama National South - 2020/21 League- Predicted to finish 21st when we took over after a massive overhaul of the squad bringing in 10 players overall and releasing 13 we actually started the season predicted to finish 14th. We had a good august only losing twice we found ourselves just inside the playoffs. Flirting with the playoffs for most the season we finally dropped out towards the end drawing too many games and in our last 10 games we won 4 and lost 6 which lead to us missing out and finishing a respectful 10th. Surprisingly i managed to win Manager of the Year Player of the Year / Young Player of the Year / Most Assists / Top AvRating - Matt Carter Top Goalscorer - Yassine En-Nayeh Cups- Had a great run in the FA cup beating lower league Yate then two teams in our own league Hemel Hempstead and Hampton & Richmond to get through the qualifying rounds where we came up against National League side Dover. Scoring a late equaliser at Dover saw us claim a replay victory at home 2-1. This gave us a 2nd round tie with Sunderland at home giving them a great game and managing to snatch a deserved draw. The stadium of Light provided too much of a challenge for us in the replay losing 3-0. We reached the 2nd round of the FA Trophy where we lost another replay against National League Barnet 2-1.

  10. So after a couple failed attempts at the youth challenge i have decided to give up and start over with this challenge! Sticking with Carshalton. Hopefully i can get out of the National South!! Managers Profile Club Vision Best XI Club Overview Breaking News
  11. So i have decided to start over after the full release going to stick with Carshalton.
  12. Had one who was already at the club from the unplayable season but the AI must have only signed him to a youth contract and Ipswich poached him for 15K. The Finances are about to hit 750K in the red and the highest offer i have had for my best prospect is 5k i negotiated up to 20k then they walked away. He is now pissed squads pissed i ruined his dream. Maybe i will struggle out one more season hopefully we get a takeover but we will surely be well over a million in debt by the end of the season.
  13. We averaged 572 in the first season and 603 in the second. so understandably the income from that is awful! I guess the need to sell is massive but with only being able to offer one year contracts negotiating fees with other clubs is a chore especially when they all have higher reps. FA cup runs have been hard as both seasons i have been drawn against national league teams. Going to take the easy route and start again with FC United hopefully the better rep and higher attendances will helps move the off field part of the challenge along quicker.
  14. So i am going to stop this challenge with Carshalton i managed to stay up in the second season but despite being under 50% of my wage budget i was still losing 150-200K a season and then at the start of my third season the board decided to expand the stadium at a cost of 150K leaving us in over 600K worth of debt. Sort of makes an impossible challenge even more impossible. Thinking of starting again with FC United as at least the attendances they get will give us a chance of progressing off the field. Anybody else struggling with finances? Find it hard to believe that i am only spending 2.8k P/W on wages with no added bonus on any players contracts and still losing so much each season.
