  1. I am having this issue as well. No matter what panel I change(or what I change it to) whenever I switch screens it gets reset. Edit: Not sure what changed but it is now working for me
  2. Dorking Wanderers Season 9 - 2027/28 League - First year in League 1 and from my past experiences in FM I felt we could be a mid table team and if we had some good runs we could have an outside shot for a play off spot. And that is exactly what happened, the first few months of the season we had to fight for everything while we adjusted to the new level of talent we were facing. We weren't in any danger but we still struggled more than we we did good. However, come Christmas time we flipped a switch and we started playing to a higher standard and put on a very good second half of the season. If we played like that all year we would have been fighting for automatic promotion. This year we settled for 6th place which we only got thanks to winning our last game and the 3 teams ahead of us drawing or losing. However, this year it was not meant to be and we lost to Bury in the playoffs. This season was very good and something we will look to build on next year and push for promotion. In the long run it is better we did not get promoted right away because we simply are not near a Championship caliber squad. We had another takeover this season which saw ownership change to the fans so I guess we won't be getting the sugar daddy treatment anytime soon. The takeover was great timing because we were not looking good financially and our balance was reset. We still have about a 1 million dollar loan we are paying off but we are looking much better than previous years. Cups - Not much going on this year, will look to improve next year Transfers - Got some good loan players in this year that helped us since we don't have the budget for these types of players yet. Finances - As mentioned earlier we are doing better financially and should build on this next year. I completed my Continental A license and just started my Pro license as well.

  3. Dorking Wanderers Season 8 - 2026/27 League - Third year in League 2 after falling in the playoffs the past 2 years I was pushing for automatic promotion harder than ever. I felt I made some very good signings and my squad was stronger than ever. We got a new center piece striker who hit the ground running and we were feeling really good the first half of the season. Then came January 5th, a match against Leyton Orient saw our star striker go down for the season with damage to his cruciate ligaments. A huge blow for our team but this meant Keston Williams would be back in the starting role. One month later we were struck again with terrible news... this time Keston went down with a broken foot and would miss the next 3 months. Down 2 strikers saw us drop down the table and coming to the tail end of the season there was very much the possibility of missing out on the playoffs. Luckily we did enough to secure our place in the playoffs. Keston was almost back in time for our first round clash against Burton but he was not ready. Our team rose to the occasion and we dispatched Burton with a 4-2 win to book ourselves a spot in the final. Here we would face Accrington and Keston was fit enough to get a start. It was a hard fought battle but we did it! We finally got our promotion to League 1! Cups - Probably our best overall cup performances so far. Not bothered about the EFL Cup but we won our first game in it this year but losing in the next round. FA Cup we only made it to the third round but we faced Chelsea which boosted our gate money, shame it wasn't away. EFL Trophy we made it all the way to the Southern Semi Final where we narrowly lost away to Plymouth. Transfers - Broke our record for highest transfer fee received with our sale of Monemvasiotis to Preston. After refusing a transfer request from some clubs he became completely unprofessional and skipped practice a few times. Also sold Adrian for a good chunk of money, both of whom I had signed on a free at the start of the season. Finances - We made it out of the red...barley, not enough for us to do anything with but hopefully we can fill up our stadium now that we are in League 1 and get some new sponsorship deals to go along with the TV money we will get.

  4. Dorking Wanderers Season 7 - 2025/26 League - I actually finished this season around Christmas time but apparently never posted my update so this will be brief. Finished in 5th but we were on a poor run going in. We lost in the first round of the playoffs which meant we were staying in League 2 for a third year. Cups - EFL and FA Cup both say us crashing out in our first games against Wigan and Sunderland respectively, shame on the FA cup once again. We did find success in the EFL Trophy which say us make it all the way to the Southern Quarter Final. Not a big money maker but the prize money for winning certainly helped balance our hemorrhaging money. Transfers - Sold a player who was moaning about playing time, very pleased we got that amount for him. We got a new GK(Annerson), new starting striker(Williams) and two starts in a loan. Williams became the first player in club history to represent their country at a World Cup! Finances - Bad, just bad Career History: Season League Position FA Cup Notes Top Scorer 2019/20 VNS 7th 2nd Qual. Round Made playoffs Zane Banton (27) 2020/21 VNS 1st 2nd Round Champions!

  5. Dorking Wanderers Season 7 - 2025/26 League - Another solid year in League 2 ended in playoff disappointment again. We had a real good chance of getting automatic promotion but coming down the stretch we let the nerves get to us and couldn't find a win. On the last day of the season we still had a chance to get automatic promotion with us sitting on 79 points and facing Rochdale. However we just couldn't find a way to get the ball in the net and we drew the game and Rochdale moved up above Ebbsfleet. So off to the playoffs again and this year we face Eastleigh in the first round. Eastleigh have been following us the leagues being lead by my former assistant manager. They got revenge on us after we beat them in the National League playoffs a few years back. Next year we really need to push for automatic promotion to avoid this again. I have new faces coming in next year to add a bit extra quality and will look to find some loan players if any good ones are available on 0 wages as we are at our limit and struggling financially. Cups - Again we struggle in the FA Cup losing in our fist game. Simply not good enough and we really need to money. Not bothered about the EFL Cup and we lost to Wigan in the first game. We did again have a strong showing in the EFL Trophy which is nice since I use this as a rotation to get some of our backups and young players game time. Ended up making it a round deeper this year and lost to Portsmouth on penalties. Transfers - Sold a young player who kept complaining about first team football but simply was not good enough for a decent price and got a clause in for future transfer money. With no quality CBs available on loan or free we made a rare purchase for Rice who went straight into the starting 11 and was solid enough. We had an injury crises late January with our other CBs which saw Rice partnering with some youth players(which didn't do bad). Annerson was our starting GK and Seal and Harris also came in on loan and were starters as well. Williams came in November after failing to land a contract else where and became our number 1 striker. He was solid and is our first player to play in a World Cup! Finances - Down $400k even after the revenue from League 2 was distributed to us. Before that we were near -$900k, this next year will be tough on us financially unless we pack out or stadium, which we don't come close to and haven't had a sell out in a League game yet.

  6. Dorking Wanderers Season 6 - 2024/25 League - First season in professional football and what a great first season we had in League 2. We proved that we could compete in this league and always had chance to win the 3 points. Up until December we had a realistic chance of gaining automatic promotion but ultimately this proved to be too much for us. Instead we stayed in the promotion places and ended up finishing 5th. Unfortunately we came up short losing to Leyton Orient in the play off final by a score of 2-0. That of course was disappointing as we put together a fantastic season considering we weren't able to add that much more talent. Our best striker is still Zane Banton who I signed in our first season, and he is definitely not League 2 standard but I wasn't able to find a better replacement that was worth the wage they demanded. Cups - League football means new and more cups. In the EFL Cup we faced Cardiff City in the first few weeks of the season and thoroughly got beat 3-0. In the EFL trophy we finished first in our group before losing to Northampton in the Second Round of the South section in a close 0-1 game. The FA Cup with disappointing as we swiftly crashed out in our first game against Peterborough with a 1-3 defeat. Need to do better! Transfers - Added more midfield players and am really happy with my options here. Loaned in 2 players for the first time and both played big parts. Got Lee back for next year and will continue to be first option at LW. Villa wants Bytheway to play at a higher level now which is disappointing as he was a rock at CB. Finances - For the first time we have(had) money! I quickly put this into both our facilities and even got a new coaching badge on the way. With our profile rising we should continue to see our attendance go up but still see our average home attendance around 1,500 which hurts.

  7. Dorking Wanderers Season 5 - 2023/24 League - After last seasons disappointing season I brought in a few new faces to push us forward. Unlike last season my new recruits made the impact I was hoping for. We had a great first half of the season and were keeping up with the league leaders. Unfortunately we had a dip in form coming towards the end of the season and fell out of the playoff spots. Luckily in the final stretch we found our form again and made the playoffs on the last day. Our hot streak continued in the playoffs beating Tranmere, Dag & Red and then Eastleigh(managed by my first Assistant Coach). The final was a close game that saw us coming back to win 2-1 in front of a crowd of 38,000+ Our team was led by new signing Antonio Diaz who played in our deep lying playmaker role. Diaz was so important to us this season that he swept the end of the season awards Cups - This season was a complete disappointment when it came to our cup competitions. In the FA Cup it took a reply to get past our first opponent in Basingstoke and then crashing out in the 1st round to fellow National League competitors Carlisle. In the FA Trophy we failed to trouble Yeovil in the 2nd round which means we won't be adding this trophy to our collection. Transfers - 6 new starters came in, and without them we would not be going up. Finances - We did get a boost to our balance after winning the final and gaining promotion but we are expanding our stadium(so happy they haven't decided to build a new stadium yet) and will have extra expenses since turning professional.

  8. Dorking Wanderers Season 4 - 2022/23 League - Second season in the National League and losing out in the playoffs last year I was optimistic of this year especially with some talent we brought in. However, things just didn't click for us and our season saw us put in inconsistent performances all year which saw us finish 13th. When things seemed like they were back on track we would lose form and drop down the table. Ultimately we missed out on the playoffs which left me frustrated. Maybe I was being too loyal to some players that just aren't up to standards and this opened my eyes. Coming into next year I upgraded some key positions and was extra careful to get the right players who have strong mentalities. Cups - This year made it the farthest yet in the FA Cup, reaching the 3rd Round and getting an away draw to Aston Villa. We got some much needed money which unfortunately was only enough for a coaching badge before it ran out, but much appreciated! FA Trophy continues to be a disappointment, knocked out in our first game. Transfers - Thought I had some real gems joining this year but ultimately only Knight lived up to my expectations. Broome who was suppose to lead our attack was simply not scoring and ended up getting outscored by Banton who started less games Finances - As mentioned the cup money quickly ran out. We did get a takeover but no money was invested into the club and still refuses to get an affiliate. Career History: Season League Position FA Cup Notes Top Scorer 2019/20 VNS 7th 2nd Qual.

  9. Dorking Wanderers Season 3 - 2021/22 League - First season in the National league so I was unsure of how our team would fare. We had a slow start to the campaign so we had to work our way back into the playoff positions. We were ways off the top teams in terms of ability and the highest we managed to make it was 4th place. York were by far the best team in the league this year and this showed in the final table. We made it past the first round of the playoffs but ultimately lost the semi finals to Maidstone who went on to win the final. We were missing our starting LW who got injured 2 games before the end of season and was out throughout the playoffs and then ended up picking up an injury to our starting LB before the semi final. We definitely could have won but a poor first half meant we needed to come behind, each time we got one back they scored another. The match ended in a 3-2 win for Maidstone. Overall this was a good season even though playoff losses are very disappointing being that close to promotion. It looks like next season better players are willing to join the club. I already have a new striker joining, an 18 year old from Chelsea. He is already better than Banton and looks to fit in perfectly for our tactics. Next year we will push on! Cups - Same old story with the cups. FA cup started poorly which saw us needing a replay against VNS side Chesham(first game was at home as well). Made it to the 2nd round once again and at least lost to a team in a league above us. Really hoping to get a decent run / draw so we can get some much needed monies. FA Trophy saw us reach the third round before losing to Dag & Red who finished 18th in our league so that was a bit upsetting. Transfers - Not as many in this year and didn't transfer anyone out(not for lack of trying). 5 of these were starters and the others were rotational players Finances - Still lacking the money, stuck with no upgrades until we get some money in the bank.

  10. Dorking Wanderers Season 2 - 2020/21 League - Wow what a year this was which saw the Wanderers become the champions! My defense was revamped with new starters which really made a huge difference. This year we scored the most goals and conceded the least in the league. Incredibly we started the season unbeaten in 31 games, by far the longest run I have ever been on in any FM. We made it all the way until February 27th before we ended up losing a heart breaker by a 94th minute goal. We did have more draws than I would have liked by I believe this is simply down to player quality. Zane Banton picked up where he did last year and consistently scored goals. Led the league in goals with 37 and picked up 7 assists along the way. Next year will be a step up but believe our setup is more than capable of a mid table finish if we can add a quality player or 2. Cups - This year was so much better in terms of cup competitions. In the FA Cup we made it to the 2nd Round which helped us out financially. We disappointingly got smacked down 4-0 against National League side Fylde and will be looking for payback next year. FA Trophy we made it 2 rounds in and crashed out to National League side Ebbsfleet in the 1st Round. I do have ambitions to win this cup before we get promoted to League football so we can add silverware to our cabinet Transfers - 6 new starters ended up coming in, the rest are all coverage and prospects. Finances - Made it out of the red thanks to the cup run and took that opportunity to get my 3rd coaching badge. No money to do anything else and board keeps rejecting senior affiliate request. Announced stadium expansion to meet requirements so we will be in a tougher situation next year, but am thankful they didn't decide to build a new stadium.

  11. Dorking Wanderers Season 1 - 2019/20 League - First season you never know how it is going to turn out. We started off slow as we weren't able to attract quality players but were never in any danger. In October we were finally able to sign our top target Zane Banton who we had on trial during pre-season but either refused to sign or then was demanding too high of wages. His pace at this level is lethal, as soon as we got him our fortunes changed and we started climbing up and challenging the play off spots. We had a terrible spell in February and March were we only picked up 2 wins from 9 games. This put us in danger of missing out on the play offs...but somehow we managed to sneak in thanks to a win on the final day and a Woking loss. Unfortunately for us our play off dreams were short lived, we crashed out in the first round against Hemel Hempstead. We were outplayed which was frustrating as their best player was suspended for the match and they were in bad form. Next year I hope we are able to build off our good first season and bring in some new faces to push us over the edge. FA Cup and FA Trophy both were terrible experiences for us this year. We crashed out against our first opponents in each competition. In the FA Cup we lost in the 2nd Qualifying Round to Sevenoaks. We got a home reply and proceeded to lose 0-1 without putting up any fight. This was unacceptable and made my players well aware of this. FA Trophy was a 0-1 loss away to Dartford, which was disappointing but acceptable. Transfers - Nothing special here, lots of new players in to fill out our team. Finances - Finances steadily declined all year and with no cup wins at all we ended up in the red. Our board refuses to accept my requests for an affiliate even though it would help tremendously with our cash flow. I did however get 2 coaching badges before things got worse. Don't expect to get anything new in our current state though. Career History: Season League Position FA Cup Achievements Top Scorer 2019/20 VNS 7th 2nd Qual.

  12. Starting the challenge from the start of FM19 with Dorking Wanderers. Last year I started late and kind of stopped posting updates....but not this year!
  13. Metropolitan Police FC Season 4 - 2021/22 League - A much improved second season in the National League saw us finish 6th booking our place in the playoffs. We unfortunately faded the second half of the season but still played strong enough when it mattered in the playoffs. We have no issue scoring goals but our defense continues to be a huge liability. Need to improve on this or we could have some serious issues next year. FA Cup - Not quite as good as last year only managing to make it into the First Round. FA Trophy - We did it! We won the FA Trophy getting us our first trophy for our cabinet under my management. We had some solid performances along the way and won the final in the 119th minute! What a feeling! Transfers - Picked up some solid players who played a big part in our season. Shaw, Wright and Noble all were starters who helped us over the line. Finances - Our finances look good for the first time giving us the ability to finally upgrade some facilities Career History: Season League Position FA Cup Achievements Top Scorer 2018/19 VNS 19th 4th Qualifying Round Harry Warwick (26) 2019/20 VNS 5th 1st Round Promotion via playoffs!

  14. Metropolitan Police FC Season 3 - 2020/21 League - Winning promotion last season saw us playing in the Vanarama National League this season. With many others getting promotion in their first seasons here I was hopeful to do the same. Looked to add some more quality where I could and was feeling optimistic at the start of the season with my picks ups and a good pre-season. We started of pretty inconsistent and was hoping that was just to the new faces still getting integrated in the team...this was not the case because all season our defensive mistakes kept happening. We hovered down above the relegation spots for most of the season and only finished 17th. Much work to be done next year FA Cup - This year we progressed a round further and made it to the second round were we lost 2-4 against Bury. It wasn't a huge payday like some have gotten but this helped us greatly in the finance department. FA Trophy - A disappointing exit in this competition as we lost 1-4 against Chester who are a division below us. Transfers - Not as many as last year but saw as add some better quality players and some young prospects. Finances - We did very well this season with finances and actually made a large enough profit to get out of the red!

  15. Metropolitan Police FC Season 2 - 2019/20 League - With our 433 being a defensive disaster last year we switched to a classic 442. We hit our stride early and kept pace with the leaders until Christmas. After the New Year we dropped of the pace but comfortably stayed in the playoff positions. We had a bit of a rough patch in March but we started finding our stride again at the right time heading into the playoffs. We had some hard fought games but we stepped up when needed and saw us win promotion via a 1-0 win again Concord. FA Cup - We made it to the 1st round of the FA cup this year before losing to League Two Notts Co. FA Trophy - After crashing out in the FA Cup and having a good position in the league In was able to make a push in this cup. We made a good run into the 4th round but unfortunately lost to the runners up York 0-3 Transfers - Added wide players for my 442 and added better quality in some positions as well. Finances - We actually managed to make money this year but are still in the red, hopefully win our good season we will see an increase in attendance next year. With our good season we saw our player Hunter win the players of the season award in the league. Just announced we are expanding our stadium by a capacity of 1,297 even though we only averaged 381 fans last year. Luckily we did get a good grant to offset a good chunk of this cost but this will hurt the finances for sure.
