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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
