  1. Welcome to a Scottish league odyssey managing 7th tier Burntisland Shipyard FC. Burntisland Shipyard Football Club are a Scottish football club based in the town of Burntisland, Fife. The club competes in the East of Scotland League First Division Conference A and play their home matches at Recreation Park. They are full members of the Scottish Football Association. For this save I have used The (Real Life) Full Scottish Pyramid inc. Juniors database created by @Morrissey. Burntisland play at the lowest possible tier of Scottish clubs that can be promoted to the SPL. The aim is to take them all the way to the top of Scottish Football and challenge the European elite. 0 The aim will be to move up the leagues and use any money possible to upgrade the youth infrastructure at the club. Here's the squad at the start of my tenure.
  2. After a few years away I am making a return to writing about my football manager stories (quarantine will do that to you). Decided for this one I will go back to my hometown team of Stirling Albion. I've managed them a few times before and every save I race up through the leagues only to fall out of love with the save when I have to start relying on loanees from massive clubs or foreign wonderkids. This time I'm going to go a bit more local and only use youth players to build my way up through the leagues. Few fun facts about Stirling Albion: 1. We hold the record for the largest post war win in British Football (20-0 vs Selkirk in 1984) 2. We became the first fan owned club in Scotland in 2009 after a takeover by the Stirling Albion Fan Trust with members including Andy Murray and Cristiano Ronaldo 3. We were founded in 1945 after the previous club in Stirling (Kings Park FC) had their stadium damaged by a German bomb during WW2 4. And finally we have one of the best stadium views out there Set-Up Like to see what's going on in other top leagues and have a fairly large database just for realism sake. Thrown in every Scottish player as well because there's usually some finds in the Scottish juniors (not that I'll need any) Club Info Bit of club info for you. Facilities are pretty average but hope to get the improved to a high level. Club Vision & Finances Seems like the board do have some ambition compared to others. Mean that results are going to be somewhat key with promotion required in the next 2 seasons and after that I would have to keep them in the league. Financially the club is pretty sound and hopefully I can use this money in the bank to get facilities upgrades and increase the youth spending. Squad These are all the players I have to work with this season (first team + reserves). Our youth team is pretty non-existent and is full of grey players. Gave YP nicknames to the 3 players that came to the club through the youth system. There is a decent amount of potential in the players here so looking forward to getting to work Key Players Gutted that Hughes is only a loan player but hope to get as much out of him. Mackin and Bikey will hopefully bang in the goals this season. Prospect(s) Kyle Banner is by far our best youth prospect with that 5+ stars potential ability however that only puts him as a League 1 standard player. Some decent attributes for a centre half. That brings an end to the Intro to my challenge. Will give an update once I clear preseason. Any questions, tips etc feel free to post them. Would be much appreciated thanks!
  3. The Spartans A journey to make Spartans relevant. I was looking for a long term save to start during this work from home period, started a Bolivian league save but everything broke after 1 season so went for a more tried and tested database and the Scottish adventure began. Choosing a team was easy when I looked and saw one called Spartans, big fan of the races and lock down has had me miss a few events this year. A quick look into their history, based in Edinburgh and never been in the football league. First challenge is to get into the league, secondly become the best team in Edinburgh, thirdly best team in Scotland and finally best in Europe and worldwide. The team selected, game loaded it was time to begin. First things first, new kits. I have completed 2 season already before deciding to write this so will give a quick run through so everything is caught up. Season 1 Started poorly, we went with a 4-1-4-1 formation and controlling possession tactics. The possession controlling seemed to work but we struggled at the attacking end of the pitch scoring just 36 goals in 30 games the only reason we finished so high in the league was we conceded just 16 goals. Overall we were involved in quite a few competitions so here is a summary; Lowland League - 3rd Scottish Cup - 4th Round Betfred Cup - Group stage- 5th IRN-BRU Cup - 1st Round SFA South Challenge Cup - Runners up East of Scotland Qualifying Cup - Winners Lowland League Cup - 1st Round Biggest takes from this were, Scottish cup was great for income, beat Berwick from league above us in the second round then got a divisional rival in East Kilbride in the third round. Falkirk beat us after an own goal from the halfway line ended our chances and Tolmie’s Spartans career. The league showed we are a good side but need to be more attacking so that was my mine drive going into the second season. I didn’t see the need for wholesale changes so secured our better players to additional years on contract and brought in 4 new signings during the summer. Season 2 This season started a lot better, I have decided to change the tactics and move to a 4-2-3-1 with the extra midfielder going forward hopefully enough to get me the goals I craved. Mix this with my biggest summer signings Lewis Small and Aidan Wilson we would hopefully have a successful season. The fixtures speak for themselves, just the two losses all season (which I still don't understand) and we set records for most wins, points, wins in a row, games without losing, highest avg rating and most goals by a player. In the rest of the competitions we did fairly well in the cups the board does not care about and just about scrapped the results needed in the cups we were judged on. Here are the results in a nice easy to read form. Lowland League - 1st Playoff Lowland/Highland - Winners League 2 Relegation Playoff - Winners Scottish Cup - 3rd Round Betfred Cup - Not entered IRN-BRU Cup - 1st Round SFA South Challenge Cup - Winners East of Scotland Qualifying Cup - Winners Lowland League Cup - Semi Finals The league itself has issues with competitiveness as most teams let too many players go in the off-season and didn't replace them. A lot also had loanees that would not work now as bigger teams did not want to loan to clubs our size, I tried many times to get a senior affiliate (for money more than players) but failed every time. One benefit/bug I found was I could sign players to a youth contract on £5 a week and only give them a real contract if there was interest. This mean 4 or 5 players on top wages close to £100 a week took up half my budget and then the rest was a few youth academy players (can't afford to keep them all), players on youth contracts and rotation players who I had to give part time contracts to so that they stayed. This brings us nicely onto finances. On average our wage bill second year was £650-700 a week, rather than the £1200 in the first year so over the season we saved £26,000. This mixed with some good cup runs, in the low paying cups, meant we finish the season with -£11,000. Not great but much better than peak debt of -£62,890. I cannot see anything that says stadium sizes in the rules for League 2 so hopefully that's not an issue though last home game of the season I got a notification saying we were leaving Ainsle Park so not sure what's going on there as no building work or anything going on. Moving forward the squad want to challenge for playoffs next year, I think it might be an issue getting players of the right caliber but its wait and see for now, Scottish clubs have released players on the save so begins a few hours of trawling looking for the right guys, particularly a GK and LW. Around the World. Scotland England Rest of Europe If anyone wants info on anything let me know, playing on FM19 with Scotland as only playable but big European leagues viewable Planning to post a pre, mid and post season update from here on out.
  4. Some may have seen my post in GD where I discussed this but after pouring some hours into the editor this db is finally finished! For now! I have created a fantasy league system for Scotland with clear promotion and relegation from the best of Scotland down to the Highland and Lowland leagues. This is not as extensive as it sounds with only three leagues (H/L are in the same tier). This is because in my opinion Scotland simply has far too many league teams for a nation of its size. This retains the best 32 professional sides with the tiered leagues adding another 40 teams. We have the following: SPL - Tier One - 16 teams playing each other home and away. After 30 games top four and bottom four split and play each other once more to decide the overall champion and who finishes in the two rlegation places. They keep their points totals from the first 30 games. Championship - Tier Two - 16 teams playing each other home and away. Top two are promoted and bottom two relegated (no playoffs). The most northerly team enters the Highland Premiership and the most Southernly enters the Lowland Premiership. Highland and Lowland Premierships - Tier Three - Two leagues of 20 teams playing each other home and away. A single team is promoted from each into the Championship. Scottish Cup - For the league sides only. 32 teams are drawn into 8 groups of 4. These extra 6 games (plus potential playoff games) brings up the number of games to ease the loss of revenue from shorter leagues. Scottish teams cannot afford to lose any more money! The group winners and runners up procede to the last 16 after Christmas. Only the final is played at Hampden. Amateur Trophy - For the 40 Highland and Lowland sides. With no League Cup I could afford to raise the reputation and prize money for the Amateur sidesto hopefully make it a big deal. 40 teams are in 8 groups of 5 (8 games) with the group winners progressing to the quarter-finals. The finalists get their big day out at Hampden.

  5. I've never played a full game of FMT, (in fact I have never managed more than a single season I don't think), and mainly due to my dissatisfaction with a couple of bugs in FM, I have decided to give FMT a proper go and play a save that isn't really something you would expect of me. It's not going to be Youth Only. It's not going to be Journeyman, (because I expect that the issues with FM20 are likely to exist in FMT20 too). I will not be starting at the very bottom of the structure I start in. The save is inspired by a song, (or at least a fans version of a song that blew me away). Because this is FMT, I will be embracing some of the FMT style benefits, (I already knew that I had the ability to purchase a son in the game and now I also understand that I can "buy a Golden Generation", but what's the betting they are all absolutely pish anyway!). I'm really just playing this until the boffins at SI can sort out the things that are bugging me about FM20. The 1st aim as always is to not get sacked. The 2nd aim is to absolutely bury Hearts. The 3rd aim is to separate the Old Firm and become better than Rangers. The ultimate aim is to topple Celtic. Where as I would usually start with no badges and a Sunday League reputation, in this save I am starting with an automatic reputation and I don't think badges are in the game because I didn't get an option in that respect. There is however 1 feature that I will absolutely NOT be using. It's a downright abomination. Start of save. Jul 2019. We have £8.8M in the bank, but a transfer budget of £0.00. Our wage budget is £67,952 and that's exactly what we are spending. Our Training Facilities are "Great" (at least that's what it says), and part of the reason for playing FMT is that I have no way of checking. Our Youth Facilities are also "Great" and as above we will just have to take their word for it. (There is no separate Youth Recruitment which is the big problem in FM20 at the moment). This is a new screen to me and it says that we don't have a Chairman. Are Hibs fan owned? I was actually looking to delegate stuff to the Chairman, (like hiring/firing all staff), so I might have to do that myself, (which is a pain, and not very FMT-like). Oh ok. Here it is. It is here, it's just quite limited but no problem. I never knew this feature existed. I won't be using it. (Another abomination). I also hadn't heard of this feature either but not sure if it's new or not. This might get used at some point but I will talk you through it if and when I use it. The idea would be that this would just be for a players who has done something special that deserves special recognition. (I'm assuming that this is for a player and not for me by the way?) I've just come across "Dream Transfer" and I'm not sure what this is at all. Let's have a look and see if I can work out what it is. Oh, it actually creates a pop-up with a description for all of them. No loan restrictions. This doesn't really appeal because I tend not to use in-coming loans, but if I was able to unlock it in-game then I might be tempted to take advantage of it just for the hell of it. I certainly won't be purchasing it though. No transfer windows. I won't be purchasing this or using it when I activate it in-game. I am very used to transfer windows and couldn't bring myself to abolish them. No sacking. While I won't be purchasing this, I would like to think I will be unlocking it in-game and that it might be a decent reward to activate it. It might also allow me to them go for more risky strategies without risk of getting shown the door. Board over-ride. I won't be purchasing this, but it does say that it's unlockable even if it doesn't say how. I would expect that I get one of these to use if I get the board to change their mind about something. Either way I look forward to using this, (maybe even multiple times depending on what unlocks it). No Work permits. Although I won't be purchasing this, what makes it appealing to use if un-locked in-game is the trigger of "showing a commitment to developing home-grown talent". I would definitely use this. Brexit has been announced and it's a medium Brexit. Son generated. This is the big one for me. I would have been tempted to pay money for this, but as it's triggered by a player retiring after 10 years service rather than me being at the club for 10 years then I might hold off. It also means I am about to go and re-sign some players who I was prepared to let leave. (I wonder if loan deals screw with this?) All players interested. I'm not going to be purchasing this and I also don't think there is much chance in me unlocking this either. This might be more suitable in a Journeyman save, but is it restricted to 1 club or does it follow the Manager around? Foreign Influx. Although I wouldn't purchase, if I manage to go undefeated for a full season, then I bloomin well deserve this as a prize. Unlimited scouting. Oh yes, if this save lasts 10 years then this is definitely getting used once I unlock it. New Stadia. I would pay good cash money to have a stadium names after me, (because I still haven't managed it in any FM), but I can't see myself using this even if I somehow trigger it. SI please note I am happy to pay to rename a stadium though. Pretty please. Attribute masking. Not sure about this one. If you asked me if I wanted to play with the FoW lifted then I would have said no, so I'm definitely not purchasing this, but if it was an earned reward to show me every players determination level for example then that might seem more reasonable. I will have to think about this one nearer the time and will discuss in more depth if and when it happens. £1M boost. Nope. I'm not using this. £5M boost. Nope. I'm not using this. £10M boost. Nope. £50M boost. No no no no no. Morale boost. I'm not purchasing this, but if I unlock it then I will use it. Would have been better if you could keep it in your back pocket for a rainy day though, (like a Cup Final or a big league game). Magic sponge. Dodgy Lasagne. Lifetime Player contract. I'm not purchasing this, but I would use on someone like a son if I unlock it. Unsuspend player. No, not using this. All job Applications. If I was playing a journeyman save then I might be tempting, but no. Design a son. Oh I see. This isn't the same thing at all as "Generate a son". I will "try" not to buy this and will instead try to earn it. Golden Generation. This sounds right up my street. I would love to unlock this, (by having a product of my Academy win some accolade or something), but I can see me purchasing this. The only reason I'm not purchasing immediately is partly because I don't even feel like the club is mine yet, (and I've just finished the 1st season), but also because I want to be financially viable so that the board don't sell them off and that they can stay at the club long-term. I also want to see what a normal intake is like 1st. Dream Transfer. The idea of bringing in Messi or Ronaldo doesn't appeal in the slightest, but the idea of perhaps bringing back a previous product of our Academy might be more appealing. Only if I trigger it though. I'm not buying this. I don't actually know if we qualified for Europe last season. We will have to wait and see. The Youth Intake Preview is appalling and possibly suggests that the issues with FM20 are also in FMT20. I haven'y worked out how to force through a Golden Generation. I also can't work out how to give myself a son in the game, (although I think it auto-triggers after 10 seasons). (20a) Brian *. (20b) Johnston *. Something that I have noticed however is that this button is available...... I'm not sure if this is going to try and get me to pay for a son, (I'm not going to), or if it's has been triggered because I have players at the club who have been here for more than 10 years, (although not exactly 10 years). Anyway, let's press it and see what happens..... Ladbrokes Premiership. Going into the last game of the season we were 3rd, level on points with Rangers and only behind by 1 goal difference and ahead on goals scored. We just need 1 point more than them to finish in 2nd and 4th placed Aberdeen were almost 20 points behind us. Hearts, with 1 game remaining were only ahead of St Mirren in the relegation zone on goal difference. How I wish I was playing them to send them down. Celtic have obviously romped the league, although it was close for much of the season while they had games in hand. Forget that bit above. We have just been given 5 more games to play. I had forgotten about that. In the end, we didn't finish 2nd and Hearts didn't get relegated. Betfred Cup. We progressed through the Group stage and then somehow crashed out to Alloa. Scottish Cup. As if losing to Alloa wasn't bad enough, we made it a double by also losing to Morton. That's more like it. I had nothing to do with this at all. The board just announced it. How Mallan has not been called up to the Scottish side I have no idea. I'm playing him as a DLP(s) and he is absolutely smashing it. Finances. Anyway, so I know some of you will be disgusted by all of the above and still others might demand to know who am I and what have I done with Jimbo. Don't worry, I'm not changing the way I play and this is just some light entertainment to pass the time while the SI lads get on with some bug-fixing.
  6. After 16 years of trying to get all of his badges Beinir Joensen has thrown in the towel and gone into hiding...ending up 220 miles south in Scotland, in search of a new life and not as an assistant manager but as a full fledged manager! Scotland down to the 16th tier, Beinir has gone into a life of recluse! We'll be starting unemployed looking for a job in the 16th tier, from there we can only take jobs either in the same tier or one tier above us. How will this end? Who knows but this is a journeyman so I hope you're all ready to explore Scotland!
  7. I need a low maintenance save that I can just crack on with when I want to play, and not get too bogged down with the writing side of things. So I have reverted back to the old Championship Manager series, and a version that is over twenty years old. It will provide a bit of nostalgia in terms of players, and even clubs in some cases. With only English and Scottish Leagues open in the game, and very little in the way of detail compared to the current series of it's Football Manager successor, there should be a decent pace set. No match reports here, just very brief game summaries. I used an online random selector to pick me a Division, and then a club, and ended up with Scottish Third Division side, Dumbarton. To add an extra layer of competition, I'll be making use of a feature in the older versions of the game, the Overall Reputations and Performance Points Tables. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wednesday 16th July 1997 Two Cup draws are made today, before I even get a chance to take a look at my squad. First up is the Scottish Coca-Cola League Cup, where we are one of 12 teams that will play in the First Round, and we are drawn away to Divison rivals, Berwick Rangers. That becomes our season opener on the 3rd August. In the draw for the lower league competition, the Scottish League Challenge Cup, we get a more difficult tie, home to Livingston of the Second Division in a tie that is scheduled for 21st August. A quick look at the squad suggests we need to improve our full backs, centre midfield and striker options. If we decide to deploy wide men, we may need a left winger too, as 22 year old Joe Goldie is looking to move to a new club in the near future. With only £100,000 to spend as a Transfer Budget, I'm shopping for new players in the bargain basement. If I can move a few players who are not going to be required on as well, we'll be in okay shape. Sunday 20th July By the time the weekend is out, we are discussing personal terms with two players, and have offers in for another three. That was originally two players, but when my Transfer pot was increased up to £130,000, I put in a bid for a midfielder who I had originally thought would be out of our price range. Monday 21st July The first signing is made, and it's a younger player, and much needed upgrade at right back. Keith O'Halloran is a 21 year old from the Republic of Ireland, who sign's for £8,000 from St Johnstone. It's a four year deal on £1,000 per week for the player who made four appearances for Middlesbrough as a youngster, and then further appearances on loan for Scunthorpe United and Cardiff City. He also played five times for St Johnstone last season. 17 year old left winger James Paterson has rejected a move to us from Dundee United after the club accepted a £4,000 offer from us. We may be looking to go back in for him with improved personal terms. Wednesday 23rd July A second new signing is now done, and the new arrival is 23 year old centre midfielder Innes Ritchie, who signs for £13,000 from East Fife. A very good passer of the ball, it's a two year deal at £600 per week for a player who has made eleven Senior appearances, all for Motherwell prior to his arrival at East Fife, who had him Transfer Listed. Friday 25th July On the day that left winger Joe Goldie has a Transfer Request rejected, I bring in a new striker, and the man I hope will fire the goals for us this season. 31 year old Jesus Tejero signs for £25,000 from Partick Thistle. The Spaniard looks head and shoulders above any striker we already had at the club, and signs a two year deal for £850 per week. Sunday 3rd August Scottish Coca-Cola League Cup, First Round Shielfield Park, Berwick-Upon-Tweed Berwick Rangers (2) 3 - Ansah (10), Fraser (39), Walsh (68) Dumbarton (0) 0 Attendance :- 3,192 K.Meechan; Barnes ©, Bruce; O'Hallaron, J.Meechan, Sharp; Reid (McKinnon 74); McGarvey, Granger (Ritchie 45); Tejero, Glancy. We created our fair share of chances, but light on numbers in midfield with this ambitious formation cost us, and Berwick took their chances. They move on to play Rangers, while we are lectured by the Board. Performance Points :- 9th. 20 pts Overall Reputation :- 140th. Okay Wednesday 6th August We'll have to tread carefully now in the Transfer Market going forward. There is less than £30,000 available, and we clearly need to make some improvements. An attempt to bring in an attacking midfielder before the opening Third Division match has failed though.
