SEASON REVIEW 2019/2020 TEAM REVIEW For this year’s save, I wanted to save some time and dive to the endgame (i.e – Premier League) as soon as I could, so instead of Creating-A-Club at the Vanarama level, I decided to do it at the League 2 level. I replaced Carlisle, moved them to London, and replaced every player on the club. I then created every player, settling on 18 players on a £2.5M total budget. We obliterated the league thanks to some highly skilled strikers and….everything really. We played Attacking football, and I allowed the team the have their creative license on the pitch, and while we hit a rough patch a couple of months before the end of the season, we were already so far ahead at that point that it did not matter. So without further ado, welcome to Kafra FC 2020 – off to a winning start with some talented young players, and ready to face some League 1 competition. KEY PLAYERS PLAYER OF THE YEAR FORWARD - Michael Flynn (2019), 17 Years Old: 44 Apps, 25 Goals, 7 Assists, 6 PoMs, 7.49 AR…There wasn’t an award the young striker did not capture this year – League 2 Player of the Year, League 2 Top Goalscorer (25 Goals), and the Kafra FC Player of the Year…He also led the league with 7.49 AR to go with 7 Assists, 6 PoMs, and 52% Shot Target…He does not turn 17 until the end of June, and the main target of Kafra’s offseason will be to sign him to a long-term contract. Rating: 9/10 DEFENSE GOALKEEPER - Aidan Connolly (2019), 17 Years Old: 44 Apps, 1.16 Con/90, 9 Clean Sheets, 7.03 AR…He had a good season, although he started faltering towards the end, though to be fair, most of the team did, as well…He played in 44 Games, registering 1.16 Con/90 and 7.03 AR along with 9 Clean Sheets…His development showed slight improvement in his Goalkeeping and Physical abilities, but nothing really significant…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year as the top GK. Rating: 7.5/10 LEFT DEFENDER - Tim Tuson-Firth (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 4 Assists, 17 Chances Created, 101 Key Passes (1st in League), 94 Interceptions, 1.20 TpG, 7.06 AR…The statistics speak for themselves, and Tuson-Firth was a very influential going forward and in the attacking third…His 101 Key Passes led the league, and he registered 77% Pass Ratio alongside it…What he is lacking in technical ability he makes up for with his effort and speed…His versatility is also an added plus, as he can play anywhere across the back-line. Rating: 7/10 RIGHT DEFENDER - Daryl McNeil (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 3 Goals, 7 Assists, 29 Chances Created (2nd in League), 92 Key Passes (2nd), Interceptions (9th), 1.63 TpG, 7.19 AR…McNeil was just as efficient going forward as his counterpart Tuson-Firth, but was more involved defensively…Easily the best right-back in the League 2 this season, and was named in the League 2 Team of the Year…Was probably the club’s best defender overall this season, as his 7.19 AR was the highest out of all the defenders. Rating: 7.5/10 CENTRAL DEFENDER - Bob McLaren (2019), 18 Years Old: 41 Apps, 4 Goals, 73 Interceptions, 33 Shots Blocked (1st in League), 0.59 TpG, 7.00 AR…The club’s first captain, the CD was in good form this season and actually led the league in Shots Blocked…His other defensive numbers were as strong, but he was consistent…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 7/10 CENTRAL DEFENDER - John McPake (2019), 17 Years Old: 39 Apps, 3 Assists, 120 Interceptions (10th in League), 26 Shots Blocked (3rd), 0.84 TpG, 7.03 AR…The youngest member of the club’s starting back-line, he is also potentially the most talented…He has the highest rated defensive abilities on the squad, and his speed makes up for his lack of aerial ability…Has been capped at the U19 level for Scotland…was named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 7/10 MIDFIELD CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Neil Furlong (2019), 17 Years Old: 38 Apps, 3 Goals, 10 Assists (10th in League), 3 PoMs, 20 Chances Created (4th), 83% Pass Ratio, 92 Key Passes (2nd), 1.26 DpG, 7.29 AR (5th)…The obvious first observation is that Furlong belongs on the wing as opposed to the center of the pitch…He still played great for us, and while he was a real contributor defensively, he did a great job going forward…He led the team with his 84% Pass Ratio and had the 3rd highest AR on the team…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8/10 CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Scott Pugh-Grice (2019), 18 Years Old: 42 Apps, 3 Goals, 4 Assists, 1.37 TpG, 80% Pass Ratio, 16 Chances Created, 7.03 AR…The preferred choice in the rotation alongside side Furlong…More defensive-minded than Furlong, which made them a good combination…Will likely lose his starting spot to Intake youngster Alexis Milton next season, though. Rating: 7/10 LEFT WINGER - Martin Breen (2019), 17 Years Old: 43 Apps, 13 Goals, 11 Assists (5th in League), 5 PoMs, 76% Pass Ratio, 74 Key Passes (7th), 22 Chances Created (3rd), 2.80 DpG (10th), 7.28 AR (7th)…In a team full of talented youngsters, Breen joins Flynn in being in the top tier…Despite his great stats, I felt he actually could’ve played better this year…He still ranked as one of the top performers in the league…His strength is his pace, but his Technical abilities are also impressive for this level and for his position…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8/10 RIGHT WINGER - Ashley Turner (2019), 18 Years Old: 44 Apps, 15 Goals (9th in League), 13 Assists (2nd), 5 PoMs, 84 Key Passes (4th), 30 Chances Created (1st), 81% Pass Ratio, 1.38 DpG, 7.37 AR (4th)…Possibly the second best player in the entire league after his teammate Flynn…He led the league in Chances Created, and his Assists numbers were also very impressive…Was the most dangerous winger in the League 2, able to convert attacks into goals with ease…Named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8.5/10 ATTACK FORWARD - Aaron Dennis (2019), 18 Years Old: 45 Apps, 21 Goals (3rd in League), 10 Assists (10th), 4 PoMs, 83% Pass Completed, 68% Shot Target (1st), 36% Cross Completion (6th), 7.28 AR (6th)…Dennis was 2nd on the team in Goals to Flynn, but he may have been the more complete player this season…His ridiculous 68% Shot Target Ratio is the stuff made of dreams, but he also had high pass ratings and was a dangerous crosser of the ball…Overall, he was definitely 1B to Flynn’s 1A, as opposed to being a second option…He was named in the League 2 Team of the Year. Rating: 8.5/10 HOT PROSPECTS N/A IMPORTANT PLAYERS LEAVING/RETIRING None. YOUTH INTAKE Alexis Milton - Simon Fogg A good intake considering we have one player that will immediately step into the starting eleven. Our second CM position might be our weakest link, so we get to address it immediately. Fogg will add more depth to a strong CD position, but I am not complaining.
Right, after several attempts at a youth save here we go again, we are starting in League One. My club will again replace the MK Dons and play at Stadium MK, just like my Stopsley Utd team. Rep of club has been lowered from 4850 to 3200. This will be a youth only save. Mawborough's first manager will be................ I picked 23 players for our starting squad, five players join us from Tottenham including Tanganga and Parrott. *Bursik has switched from England to Croatia. We are predicted to finish 20th out of 23 teams by the media. CAPTAIN VICE CAPTAIN _____________________________________________________________________________ I will use this......... I would normally use this....... for a save like this, not going to use it this time, I will only manage this club. I will play as various managers during the save, If I get sacked I will just create another.
London Titans Hello ladies and gentlemen, it's me in my second post, this will be an experiment on how FM20 and its features, and how I could acclimatize with the game. Since in Vol 1, I reached several leagues dominating the amateur side (from the very bottom), I will redo that in FM20 with the new addition to the game. This will be a test save. I will open the real II edition when all the packs are out (England lower level, that was promoted and will be created by @Dan BHTFC; and the Caribbean Pack that will be created by @Tonao), since I plan to rise the London Titans from the lowest league in the England Pyramid and establish them as the best London team, and the best team in the World. While also helping out DR to classify became a permanent WC team, and maybe, just maybe won it with them. By the way, this save will last only two-three months, and let's set some goals. And as the new vision it will be updated through time. (Maybe I use this save as a long term one, but I'm learning)
I read a post from last year about a guy who tried a save where he built a lowly team, sculpting everything but focusing on a couple of specific elements. He made sure he only kept players with very good mental attributes determination composure concentration team work work rate I always liked the idea of using what I like to call the 'underdog stars'. Players that might play for teams in the bottom half of the table and seeing where I could get with them. So I did 'create-a-club' using Crystal Palace as my base club (they had a nice enough squad and wage budget so I wouldn't have a ridiculous amount left but just enough to fix any problems). I picked my players based on the above attributes Team consisted of: Goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski (someone I consider to be massively in underrated) Tom Heaton Rob Elliot Caoimhin Kelleher Defenders Pablo Zabaleta Daryl Janmaat Christian Fuchs (really rate this guy) Eric Pieters Maya Yoshida James Tarkowski Conor Coady Richard Stearman Rob Holding Midfielders Jack Cork Aaron Mooy Darren Fletcher (fantastic character and leader, still got enough 2 or 3 years before he can come on my coaching staff) Ruben Loftus-Cheek Joe Willock There is an another one and I can't remember for the life of me who it is...... Attacking Midfielders Pascal GroB Matt Ritchie Marc Albrighton (a player I think has proved himself time and time again) Diogo Jota Isaac Success Strikers Teemu Pukki Billy Sharp Laurent Depoitre Peter Crouch (still one of my favourite players, what a legend!) I have been through the staff as well. All three teams recruitment, coaching, medical and made sure they have good attributes in; motivation, level of discipline and determination. Mutual termination for anyone who didn't and filled the gaps Its going ok so far. Only had two friendlies games. Beat the Under 23s 2-0 using 4-2-3-1 wide and control possession but goals came from a free kick and a long shot, loads of possession but not many chances. Lost Albrighton to injury for a few weeks too. Then faced a team called Ponon, tried a different formation of 5-2-1-2 WB and I was 2-0 down in 20 mins, too much space between the defence and midfield and they hit some good long shots. I changed it at half time back to 4-2-3-1 wide, was giving Ritchie a rest but GroB filled in nicely at AMR grabbing himself a goal, Billy Sharp grabbed another and Joe Willock come on as sub with 10 mins to go and grabbed a great winner in 91st min. Mental attributes coming up good there. I'm getting a little worried about creating chances once the league starts, defence is good but need more link between midfield, wide players and strikers. I'm interested if anyone has any advice. Maybe a tactic they think I should try, another player to strengthen the squad, set piece routine, etc. I will keep you updated with how it goes as I progress through....
