  1. 12 to play and we've got ourselves a nice little buffer... We had a little blip in late February, taking only a point from three consecutive games, however have bounced back with wins over Circencester and Potters Bar. Meanwhile, Bognor have fallen away, going 3-3-4 over their last ten, and they have lost their last three.
  2. Halfway point... We've got a handy little gap up the top after seven wins in eight, but we can't quite shake off Bognor, who currently boast an incredible away record of 10-1-0 (+23 GD). Our Irish teen sensation Gary Fitzpatrick has also made his loan move permanent after Boreham Wood didn't require a fee, and has 24 goals in 27 starts. Elsewhere, Taunton are putting together a cracking debut season in the Conference South, @Jogo Bonito.
  3. Haha - I'm at the same level I started. It's my fourth season in tier 7, still trying to get my first promotion! Have finished 2nd, 3rd and 3rd, but haven't been able to crack the playoffs so far. Yate do start as the lowest rep side in tier 7 but I have built a very good squad now, so not going up will be a bit of a failure.
  4. We've passed the first third of the season and it's yet another strong start... Our next three leagues fixtures are against Dorchester, Hendon and Beaconsfield, so there is an opportunity to really consolidate our position. Our attack has been something to behold, scoring 39 goals in 13 matches. This has been mainly down to Gary Fitzpatrick and talisman Ricardo Rees, who have combined for 24 league goals (and 33 overall) and 10 assists, pretty much taking it in turns to destroy opposing defences. Rees has notched up 84 goals and 31 assists in just over three seasons now, op
  5. @hasdgfas - how much money have you put into your youth academy? Seems like you're producing youth like a top flight side!
  6. I am very tactically stubborn which doesn't help me when we go through poor runs, as I am always relying on motivating and in game changes to try and turn it around, rather than changing the way we play. Anyway, as promised, I have rehauled the squad a little bit. The biggest departure is Ollie Mehew, who leaves after three seasons, 53 goals and 22 assists. He's been a fine servant however would likely only be a squad player, meaning I couldn't justify his request for "star player" status and £400 per week. He has signed for division rivals Hendon so I will still renew aquaintances this s
  7. 2022/23 - Yate Town - Southern Premier South League Summary (3rd, lost in playoff final) We ended up finishing third, getting pipped to second on goal difference by Taunton, who scored a mammoth 88 goals (for comparison, we scored 72 times which was second best). Truro ran away with the title, nearly cracking the 100-point mark in the process. We breezed past Hayes & Yeading in the semis, however met a rampant Taunton in the final, who scored with their first four shots. We conceded a 5th shortly after half time, and despite what appeared to be a fairly even game
  8. We're 4-0 down at half time to their only four shots of the game. I think this save is about done! Edit - it finished 1-5. I am going to carry on, if only because the end of the third season is my favourite time in a save as this is when bigger clubs start releasing their first newgens. I will definitely be overhauling parts of the squad though.
  9. Four to play... The title is out of reach, with Truro being this year's AI team that racks up way more points than any other division leaders. However, we've got ourselves a nice little break that should at least see us finish in the top three, meaning we get a home semi final. If we can hold onto our current spot then we would host the playoff final too, if we get there. The signing of Fabio Saraiva has proved instrumental, with nine goals, six assists and eight MoTM awards in only 16 starts, playing either on the left wing or just behind the striker. This has also released Oll
  10. @hasdgfas - they are crazy fees for your level, given those kids are in the last year of their contracts.
  11. Anyone else scored a backheeled goal from a low cross? First time I've seen it!
  12. Two thirds of the way through... So we're basically established as a perennial playoff team but can't quite find the 5th gear required to go on and win the title. Too often we lack the cutting edge to turn a draw into a win, or we concede a stupid goal to drop points, but we're at least firmly in the top five. I signed one of my all time favourite lower league players, Fabio Saraiva, on a free and he has started well with four goals in six games. I also managed to get Ricardo Rees tied down on a new two-year deal.
  13. They could, but the promises feature has been buggy from day one.
