  1. Only one goal conceded in 8 games. Hull have went from the bottom 3 to top half and maybe games will run out before they can gatecrash the play offs. 8 Points behind - 7 games to go.
  2. Now onto to Hull City. At Burton in the Championship i was around mid table to just outside the play offs. But i knew i was pushing my luck. At Hull they are 21st but i believe they will have better quality players to move up this division.
  3. I know Burton will struggle in the Championship so i will wait for a better Championship side to offer me a job.
  4. I expected to save Burton from Relegation but got them promoted in the same season....
  5. I took over after they were beaten 1-5 at home to Bristol Rovers, i can already feel the improvement in their team over Crawley.
  6. I took Crawley up through the play offs and although we struggled near the bottom they wanted me to stay, but once once an offer came in from Burton i decided to move on and continue climbing the ladder. Burton are at the bottom but i will get them safe then push for promotion to the Championship. Once i get them there i will look for a Championship team to get to the Premier and i have gone from the Vanarama North to the Premier.
  7. Instead of expecting to go through the divisions with one team now you have to do it as a real manager would and work tour way up. I started in the Vanarama Noth League with Alfreton. Finished 1st and promoted. I was well above the relegation zone but clearly for the players i had this is the best i could do, so i accepted the job at Boreham Wood in the Vanarama National. At the time Alfreton were in a good position and Boreham Wood were struggling at 2nd bottom, but the way i saw it was Boreham Wood had players suited to this league whereas with Alfreton i was already over achieving. Alfreton ended up being Relegated and Boreham Wood moved to a comfortable League postion and reached the Final of the FA Trophy. The following season Boreham pushed on and were challenging for promotion when on offer came from Division 2 Crawley. Crawley are near the bottom but i believe i can get them challenging for promotion. So in three season i have moved from Vanarama North to Vamarama National to Division 2. That is 3 promotions in terms of my managers profile in 3 seasons.
  8. Don't just stay with the same Mentality for the full game. If you are on Cautious, watch how the stats are going... if you are getting more shots than the opposition, step up to Balanced. if you are getting less shots step down to defensive. This version does not like you staying the same as you become to predictable. Simply changes can make a difference.
  9. I have taken over Boreham Wood and although they are bottom of the same League and Alfreton are several places higher, i do believe that Boreham Wood will have the better players to perform in this Division.
  10. I think in this edition of FM it is harder to overachieve in the long term. You have to be realistic with your targets. I got Alfreton promoted at first attempt but i don't think it is possible to go through consecutive promotions. If the boards targets are to Battle bravely against Relegation then you should not expect another promotion. Another thing i have noticed is that once you bring several new players in the old players have a bad influence in the dressing room if you can't move them on. try going Defensive more to grind results out. Keep morale up and you should pass your boards expectations. I am using Alreton as a stepping stone as in real management. Instead of trying to go through the divisions with one team, i am starting to get job offers so i will use that to step up.
  11. I find that a players Condition AND sharpness play a big role. I mostly select players that are 90% fit or above. Sharpness can be difficult because you have to be playing regularly to keep it up. You can play one or two players with less Sharpness but not to many. In Cup games or against weaker opposition i have tried going full rotation to give other players a chance but it does not work.
  12. If it says... We are stronger down the middle or Play for free kicks or anything similar i choose to ignore it.
