  1. Cheers Quavis. It was the Johnstone's Paint Trophy though .
  2. FC United of Manchester - npower League 2 - 2014/15 Season After a dull season last time around, I wanted promotion and nothing else this year. Table Graph Automatic promotion was never really in doubt. We got within 3 points of Bradford at one stage, but poor form effectively ended our title hopes. Nice to get promoted with such ease though and it gives me hope for next year. JP Trophy We finally acheived some cup success, sneaking our way through the rounds to convincingly win the final over League 1 leaders Plymouth. Squad The squad was much stronger than last year, and my spanish contingent have finally settled in. The input of Serrano, Adan and 'keeper were key to promotion. Finances Still going strong. Training and Youth facilities have been upgraded. Transfers Some promising youngsters brought it, and more quality added where it was needed. Best XI Spot on. Gonna put this save on ice for a few weeks I think, started my season in League 1 and it's not entertaining me as it was.

  4. Started a lot better than I have in League 2. We can't seem to score this year. How many players did you bring in?
  5. Made it through to the 3rd round of the FA Cup for the first time. Given a home draw against Bolton. urgh.
  6. Borini seems like quite a signing, Jordan. He's currently worth £2.5m and playing regularly at Sporting Lisbon on my save. Currently scored 8 and conceded 8 in my first 15 League 2 games.
  7. Wowsers, the step up to League 2 is looking sharp at the moment. 5 straight losses to start the season, our through balls are looking amateur and we look generally inept.
  8. FC United of Manchester - Blue Square Premier - 2012/13 Season Another poor start to the season meant we were playing catch up all the way through, but again we did this superbly. At home we were nearly unbeatable, losing only twice all season, but our away form nearly cost us. After losing our penultimate game to rock bottom Solihull Moors, only a win against Wrexham on the final day would be good enough to win the title. We just about managed it. League Table League Positions Graph We were in playoff contention for the entire second half of the season, but when we won a few matches and seemed to be about to overturn the leaders, poor form hit us and we droped back. Luckily, no team ran away with it this year so our often indifferent form wasn't punishsed too badly. The cups were dismal again, and unless I get relegated, promotion means I'll never win the FA Trophy Squad The squad was almost completely overhauled in the summer, the strikers the only area to remain intact and they were the weakest part of the side. The midfield was superb, real depth and a variety of player, most of whom will hopefully be able to cut it in the division above. At the back we were fairly solid, Cameron Lindsay was a rock when he played. Again, hopefully I won't have to bring in too many new faces here. Finances Somehow we still have money in the bank, but we're shipping upwards of £20k a month now, so I'm not sure how long that'll last. Board still won't let me have training or youth upgrades though. Transfers New first XI basically, the standouts were Kaby, Lindsay and Cassidy. Out went the promoted side from the year before. Best XI I'd agree with this in every position, except maybe Akpan instead of Hewson. Onwards and upwards. I hope to keep the core of this squad the same, but I feel we'll need some more quality up front and at fullback to keep us up.
  9. Miserable start, picked up, much like last year. Still massively inconsistent.
  10. Flying through the seasons Timers, really unlucky not to go up first time of asking. Champions next year I hope.
  11. ok ignore the question, but appreciate the pass and 'move'.
  12. I've found it much harder in the BSP, with what I think is a better side. That said, we are slowly improving.
