  1. 'keepers seem to go into slow motion when faced with a shot at their near post. They also dive inside the post which is pointless.
  2. Striker James Morris seems to appear as dark-skinned in the 3D.
  3. How did Hinds end up at Mansfield? Are they up the leagues?
  4. if anyone uses an inside forward on the right wing, Spennymoor's Mark Anderson is lethal in this role. Combines 12 for long shots with "shoots from distance" and "gets forward whenever possible" and scores worldies for fun.
  5. Jack Hallahan - a teenage central midfielder released by Burton. Will sign for most North/South sides and can play a number of roles.
  6. Afolabi Coker is an excellent centre half option for VN/S clubs. I signed him for Slough so expect he would go to most clubs at that level.
  7. As a real life FGR fan (but much prefer to play with Conference North/South teams career-wise), decided to have a save with them while I wait for FM19. I went into the editor first and set Osbourne, Bennett, KMB and Monthe to leave after their contract expires (so the AI didn't extend them), then holidayed the first season a few times until they were relegated, so I could take over them in the Conference. The exodus of players leaving was amazing, but I got handy fees for most (aside from James but this was more about getting his salary off the books): Among the released (aside from the aforementioned) were Mullings, Bugiel, Whittle and Evans. So basically had to build a new team - rather than getting bogged down with big contracts for average players, I used all six long term loans available to me: Clough and Smith are both favourite sons so happy to bring them back, while Labadie is an absolute beast at this level. I play a DLF up front in a 4-1-2-3 (wide) so Harvey is ideal for this role. Somehow I managed to get away with only making the playoffs as board expectation, and the media has us in 13th (!) - presumably due to losing so many players. We have started with three fairly comfortable wins however. I also have more left in my transfer and age budgets than most clubs at this level start with.
  8. *Takes over club that has just been relegated* Player: I want to leave the club Manager: Okay, I'll look to sell you for the good of your career *Sale goes through* Manager: I just want to thank you for your service and say you're welcome back here anytime Player: Not while you're still manager .... what?
  9. For those playing in the North/South, a few more handy players at the start: Ryheem Sheckleford - former Fulham youth right back, available on a free and great for attacking formations Danny Racchi - a well known lower league playmaker, available on a free Rene Steer - a good left back who is listed by Maidenhead at the start, can purchase or loan Shaquille Hunter - wide attacker able to play on both flanks, has 16/16 for pace/acceleration
  10. Also playing at that level and having a fast striker is basically cheat mode. Defenders seem to take an eternity to react to long balls while attackers are already moving.
  11. Unfortunately after the excitement of the playoff final and promotion, we got trounced 1-4 by Aldershot in the FA Trophy final. Still, a successful season by any means. After protracted negotiations throughout the second half of the season I was able to tie down midfield dynamo Rob Ramshaw for another two seasons, along with his midfield mate Jamie Chandler (the two combined for 28 goals and 19 assists as a central midfield partnership), giving me a good platform to tackle the Conference. Sadly the same can't be said for Bradley Fewster - his FA Trophy final goal gave him 37 for the season, with L2 winners Luton looking his likely destination. He has no interest in renewing and I can't really blame him.
  12. After finishing 6th, we had to travel firstly to Southport, who finished as the league's top scorers, where we prevailed 4-2 after giving up the lead twice. We then traveled to Chorley, who finished 3rd but won the equal most games in the league (27). 1-0 up at half time, we gave up an equaliser in the 75th before goals from Jake Kirby and Fewster in the 89th and 91st minutes sent us through to the final, at 2nd-placed Salford. This then happened... Utterly mental. We were 0-2 down after 10 minutes and 1-3 down after 55 before forcing extra time. I thought Fewster had won it at the end of the first half of ET, but we conceded again in the 116th. Just as I was planning my order of penalty takers, that man stepped up again, notching his 36th goal of the season with the last kick of the match, and sending us up in the process. And still the FA Trophy final to come!
  13. I managed to re-sign Chandler for two more years, still working on Ramshaw at the moment. They have the two highest average ratings in the league currently (three matches to go, plus playoffs and FA Trophy final). Fewster no chance. Has already bagged 30 and Luton are interested in him. I can't even get him to discuss terms.
  14. Long high balls down the middle are obscenely effective in the lower leagues.
  15. Will follow this one as I'm currently using them too. The best XI is quite strong but lacks depth. Chandler, Ramshaw and Fewster have been my best three players through 2/3 of the season, but the former two want more than double what I can offer to re-sign, and Fewster isn't interested at all (unsurprising as he is now listed as a leading Conference striker, with leading L2 potential).
