  1. dafuge's FM17 challenge

    STOURBRIDGE SEASON 2017/2018 Well... that was a very interesting start to my campaign in FM17. The team is close, so very close to being good enough for promotion. Final Position We ended up finishing 10th but as you can see from the graph, we rollercoasted around in the middle of the table all year coming agonisingly close to the playoffs with 3 games to go. What really let us down was a mid-season slump in the mid 20's rounds. Transfers A lot of dead weight let go and a team's worth of players brought in. There were a few gems already in the team that made my life a little easier. Key Players Dan Fletcher Already at the club when I arrived. My player of the season who was also voted as such by the fans and was the young player of the season as well. He actually wasn't in my considerations for the first few games but injury forced my hand and he couldn't be removed after that. Only 9 goals which was the story of my life with all of my forwards this season but 10 assists to go with that as well. Panagiotis Artymatas This kid has a bright future with me. I have no intention of letting him go anywhere if I can manage it. He was a colossus at the back for us and kept us in games that we had no right to be kept in. Matt Gould Another player who was already at the club. He was another player that just kept us in games with some brilliant work between the sticks. My backup keeper isn't bad at all either but he's got no hope of budging this Kiwi barring injury which, thankfully, he only had for about 2-3 games. Other News We are BLEEDING money at the moment so I'm not sure how that's going to affect me going forward. Our cup runs were completely non-existent. Cup face-plants really. Also, I believe that Canada has taken the 2022 World Cup rights off Qatar. Next Season I want promotion. Or at the very least comfortably make the playoffs. For that to happen I mostly need a striker who isn't afraid of the big net at the end of the pitch. I could also do with a really creative midfielder and a free-kick taker wouldn't hurt. The Story So Far...

    Oh dear... FM 17 day one and I'm already in Dafuge's challenge. Why do I hate myself so. Introducing the manager of Stourbridge. I look nothing like that IRL. While I'm the manager of Stourbridge I might try to work out Who put Bella down the Wych Elm
  3. dafuge's FM15 challenge

    Starting again. This time I'm taking Skelmersdale. I learned a bit from the first go around (particularly with coaches and physios) so hopefully I'll make a better go at it with them.
  4. dafuge's FM15 challenge

    Yeah... I got fired by Dulwich at the end of November. Made the second round of the FA trophy but that's about all... Was sitting 16th when they fired me.
  5. dafuge's FM15 challenge

    So here I am again... likely to start the challenge and stop after 3 seasons... but all the same: I am the manager of Dulwich Hamlet Predicted to finish 13th so I'm sure I'll be fired by Christmas when we're sitting at the bottom of the table. So far I've managed to **** it up by hiring 2 coaches and therefore being unable to hire a physio because I got too excited with signings before checking my limits.... good start really. had a 4-0 win against AFC Hornchurch in a friendly though.
  6. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Huzzah! A board that does things! I asked for more coaches and the Canvey Island board gave me 1 more slot.
  7. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Starting again and taking over as the boss of Canvey Island. Had them for a time last year so thought I'd give them a go again.
  8. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Yep... just got relegated... Sat at 19th for almost half the season and just couldn't stay there for 4 final games... Time to start over.
  9. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    aaand we just dropped into the relegation zone with 3 games to go...
  10. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    8 games to go and I'm sitting just outside the relegation zone on goal difference alone. Going to be an interesting run home...
  11. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Still in season 1 sitting in 19th place on the ladder. After 5 games without a win just thumped Staines (21st) 6-0 and got 5 players into the team of the week... WTH is happening with my team....
  12. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Good luck. I managed to keep a few of the players on hand but with the new updates maybe you'll have a tougher time.
  13. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    I'm getting slammed all of a sudden. Just lost 6-0 to Dover and 5-1 to Bath. They're both top of the table teams but damn...
  14. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Damn work makes my FM life difficult... stupid well-paid job... Anywho, still very early in my season but good to see the reputations are up now. 1400 for Thamesmead seems like a reasonable challenge. Happy with my choice.
  15. dafuge's FM14 challenge

    Decided to give Thamesmead in East London a go. Presenting the new manager: Lanthal Rowning We're pegged to come 22nd and the chairman wants to avoid relegation. Let's hope I can manage that. EDIT: Given that my starting senior squad has 9 players in it... this could be a rough first year...
