With the media predicting us to finish dead last and the board just hoping that we could sneak survival, the prospects didn't look bright. We started better than anyone expected, however, setting ourselves up nicely in mid table before a mid season slump (five defeats in six games) threatened to send us tumbling down the table. We picked up though and almost sneaked into the play-offs on the final day. Having won 8 of our final 9 games we were denied by an 86th minute goal at Lincoln which kept us out of the play-offs by just a single point.

[b]League Cup[/b]
A win over Championship side Coventry was a good early season boost to our confidence before we got fairly well pummelled by another Championship side, Sheffield Wednesday in the second round.

[b]Johnstone's Paint Pot[/b]
A couple of penalty shoot out wins over League One sides (Gillingham and Bournemouth) were similar boosts to our confidence, really letting us know that we can compete against League sides before we fielded a weakened side against Leyton Orient in the semi final to avoid a fixture pile up.

[b]FA Cup[/b]
Another great run, we beat Hayes & Yeading in the first round before thumping League 1 strugglers Northampton 5-1 in the second round. A trip to Villa Park was our reward, more money spinning goodness, and we put in an excellent performance, going down 2-1 with our heads held high.


[b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/11Transfers.png]Transfers[/url][/b]
Early in the window I found it difficult to bring players in but eventually we found some quality, particularly in the Premier League loan signings that we picked up, but I enjoyed spending my first real transfer budget as well. We strengthened in January after our downturn in form and in particular, John Bostock and Graeme Kelly did well for us. We'll have to be similarly clever in the market next season.

[b]Key Players[/b]
There was no absolute stand out like [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/07Foster.png]James Foster[/url][/b] last season, but the striker did have another good campaign. He struggled over the first half with both form and fitness, but once he struck a good partnership with on loan Spaniard [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/10Collado.png]Juan Collado[/url][/b] the goals started flowing once more. Goalkeeper [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/02Padaruth.png]Jeet Padaruth[/url][/b] continues to impress between the sticks. My coaches think he's playing at the absolute limits of his ability and we should look to replace him, but there are more important parts of the squad to work on right now.

[b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/03Gordon.png]Jim Gordon[/url][/b] struggled with injury over the course of the season but when he was fit he showed that he's very capable at this level, and [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/05Kelly.png]Graeme Kelly[/url][/b] provided superb cover for him in the second half of the season. Loan signing [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/04Bernadini.png]Enrique Bernardini[/url][/b] quickly became a favourite of mine with his tricky wing play, and with his contract at Liverpool up in the summer I'm hopeful that something can be done to get him here permanently.

Our signing of the season was almost certainly [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/06Bostock.png]John Bostock[/url][/b]. Having spent time with Llanelli after being released by Spurs, he welcomed the chance to get back into English football and he really provided our midfield with a better attacking balance. He'll be vastly important to us next season. As will [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/08Tsioukas.png]Kostas Tsioukas[/url][/b], my big Greek centre back who keeps improving and making it difficult for me to leave him out. Finally, we picked up former Man City striker [b][url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/09Ball.png]David Ball[/url][/b] after he impressed against us for Braintree last season, and he had an excellent first half of the season, though was a little disappointing in the second half.


[b]Next Season[/b]
I'm sure the board will want somewhere around mid table, but there's no question in my mind of where we should be aiming, and that's for promotion.

I was getting a bit giddy with Truro, start of the season we looked like it could be a bit of an outside title challenge. At the halfway point it looked at least Europe was on the cards. A 16 game winless streak meant we only avoided relegation by 5 points.

GH does love a good smashing. Waweru showing his class there too. I have a feeling he's going to be a big hit for you Terk.

Also congrats on the 5th round and getting Man Utd Liver!

Something odd happened at the start of the season, I recieved the young players released message. When I clicked to check the list of players it was empty. No one of my rivals has signed someone who was apparently released by West Ham a couple of years ago, I check their transfers from that year and there was no trace of him.

Cheers :) I was truly gutted at missing out, kept frantically checking the latest score page and nearly screamed when Lincoln's goal came through :(

Feel free to copy the 100 Club idea, thought it would be a nice idea to keep a track of those players who've made a significant contribution to the club, and to see if I end up with anyone who gets over 100 appearances without really deserving them (like Djimi Traoré did at Liverpool :D).

My left winger, Robert Eagle, in for an injured starter, just had one of the most involved games i've ever seen a single player have on FM.

7th minute, he scored an own goal off a corner to put York up 1-0.
2 minutes later, he scored a goal himself to make it 1-1.
25th minute, he takes a corner which my center back volleys in, 2-1 us.
46th minute, straight from the kick off, ball gets played out wide and he beats his man, crosses, and Paynter heads home to make it 3-1.
2 minute later, 48th minute, Eagle's tackle goes straight to their forward on the edge of the box, and after a slipped through ball, they score and make it 3-2.

Eagle had a goal, 2 assists, an own goal, a tackle that lead straight to their 2nd goal, and won man of the match in a 3-2 win over York. Getting man of the match in a game you scored an own goal in after 7 minutes is impressive all in itself. :)

I'm not saying I enjoy revenge or anything, but given the circumstances of how Lincoln kept us out of the play-offs last season, [url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/Terky/Dafuge/dafuge%20mkII/02LincolnWin.png]this win[/url] felt pretty good :D Lincoln have actually started the season in truly awful fashion. They've played 6, drawn 1, lost 5, scored 1 and conceded 28. They'd already been beaten 6-0 by Northampton before we got to them. I don't feel sorry for them in the slightest :D

Had a bit of think about my team and going to see if in the summer I can bring in two awesome young defenders. Depends how my new LB does and how my CBs perform this year. Have a very good DM who has problems with some of the squad so if needs be will move him on and put Rodwell into his natural DM position instead of CB and bring in a 24yo French one I spotted. Won't be getting any youth from my own system who are Prem quality anytime soon unfortunately.

Taking his time to settle in (doesn't speak any English yet) but there have been some flashes of real quality. 4 games, 1 goal, 1 assist so far but some of his all round play certainly leads me to believe that he'll be a real asset. I've been fortunate so far because we're unbeaten in the opening 6 games, and with the rest of the team playing so well I can afford to give him the time he needs to get comfortable in the team.

A very disappointing start saw us just above the releagtion zone with 9 games gone but things picked up thanks to Miguel Angel. This good form had a little blip during january while all my good players were getting nicked by bigger clubs but it continued sone after that and we ended well. [URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/vsmanc.jpg"]We were even the 1st team to beat Man City that season[/URL].

I expected my team to get a Euro Cup place this season but they went 1 better to get a Champions League place, i doubt we can make a significant impact on the tournament but the income will do us good.

[B]Player/s of the Season[/B]

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/MiguelPrats.jpg"]Miguel Prats[/URL] - Came in january and scored 14 from just 23 appearances

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/PaoloBiagioni.jpg"]Paolo Biagioni[/URL] - Partnered Prats during 2nd half of the season and played extremely well scoring 22 in 42 appearances

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/MiguelAngel-5.jpg"]Miguel Angel[/URL] - What would i do without him? he got us out of the slump we had at the start of the season with a string of good performances. He lost his 1st team place when Prats came in but is a useful sub scoring 12 in 14(23) appearances.

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/Edson.jpg"]Edson[/URL] - a solid 1st season for my keeper conceding just 60 in 48, not bad but will need better to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Man City

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/IdanUzan-1.jpg"]Idan Uzan[/URL] - Another solid season from my cm gets a lot of small injuries though which can be quite annoying

Could i beat them again, i beat them earlier in the league 1-0 or would my team bottle it in their first ever final of a major tournament

The final did not start well after just 16 mins Theo Walcott found himself clean through and made no mistake about the finish

However we got back into the game and after 39 mins we equalized after a mistake by their right back allowing Sazanov in to cross for Biagioni to finish into the bottom corner

We were then dealt a cruel blow on the stroke of half time, after playing well throughout the 1st half and looking to go into half time with a draw. Theo Walcott lost his marker and slotted home from 6 yards from an excellent counter attack by Man City

We never really got going after half time and a 3rd Man City goal ([URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/offsidegoal.jpg"][COLOR=#222266]which looked very offside[/COLOR][/URL], although having done some [URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/offsidegoal2.jpg"][COLOR=#222266]Andy Gray style analysis [/COLOR][/URL]on it:D maybe my right back was playing him on:mad:) came in the 54th min which killed us off and thats they way it stayed.

Never the less i am happy with my players, we matched Man City for large parts of the game and maybe next time we will win a trophy.

[URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/finances-12.jpg"]Finances:[/URL]

Due to summer spending we spent the season in the red although we made roughly 1 mill profit/month which took us out of the red by january.

Finally my new stadium is a month away from completion, we gave Gander Green Lane a good send off with a [URL="http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt291/hrbfcrule/lasthomegame.jpg"]1-0 win over Peterborough [/URL]which also secured us our Champions league spot

First 3 games in the league:

Carshalton 0-1 Farnborough
Weymouth 1-3 Carshalton
Carshalton 1-1 Dover

So the home form so far has been very shakey, so I will be looking to tweak the mentality I have been currently playing at home. The finishing of my players have been very very poor so far as well, apart from the 2nd half of the Weymouth game. I need to try and stop the team from having so many long shots, and work the ball into the box more to create more chances that way.

I have noticed that we always have a height advantage, the first three games this has occured. I should have really adapted the tactic to play more physically and more direct, its these small things I will learn from playing lower league management.

[SIZE="5"][FONT="Arial"][B]2018-2019 Season Review-Kings Lynn-League 2[/B][/FONT][/SIZE]

After surviving last season I was hoping to push on and get a top half finish. In the summer we got taken over but there is no plans for any investment. We started the season slowly and it looked like we would be in for another relegation battle. But good runs of results saw us climb up the table and at one point we were level on points with the last playoff spot but we fell away towards the end into 9th which I am very pleased with.

The main highlight of the season was our [URL="http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/5802/kingslynn10.png"]FA Cup run[/URL] where we reached the 5th round before being beaten comfortably 4-0 by Manchester United.

Stars of the Season

Stars of the season were my 3 most creative players.

[URL="http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/5274/13scottnorris.png"]Scott Norris[/URL]-young forward I signed this year he was brilliant. If he had higher composure he would be brilliant at this level.

[URL="http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/2899/6nickmain2.png"]Nick Main[/URL]-My advanced playmaker contributes brilliantly from midfield with some important goals and assists.

[URL="http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/5407/10samhill.png"]Sam Hill[/URL]-My other striker who partnered Norris had him on loan last season got him permantly this season and he played really well.

Boston Utd BSP 2014/15

Hugely dissapointint second half of the season - I lost 7 players to injury and had an enoromous run of 1-1 draws where I pounded the opposition smashing shots against the woodwork etc.

Finished in 3rd place and was banned for the 1st leg where Histon beat me 2-0 to record their first ever win against me, I then played in the Trophy final a few days later which I won beating Torquay on penalties.

Three days later I drew the home play-off leg 2-2 and went out.

I'm seriously thinking about whether I want to continue playing this - I fed up with elements like being twice as likely to hit the woorwork and opposition keepers being twice as likely to pull off great saves, my players being kicked off the park and shirt pulling being seen as worse then two footed lunges or elbows in the face.

Ive just realised that I'm using 10.1 patch still, will it be better to use 10.2?

I might as well do it now and holiday the season while the match is about to start :)

I do think 10.2 is an improvement, so yeah, I'd patch up before I started if I were you.

Well I've decided to continue - totally revamped the team, with my 39 player/coach retiring from playing I've gained knowledge of Spain.

As a result I've managed to pick a 21 year old ex-Real Madrid keeper who to my shock has pulled off more great saves in 6 games then his predecessor,and a 21 year old ex-Real Madrid striker called Sunday N'Diaye who dosen't look fantastic but has Acc 14, Pace 13 and finishing 15 who's scored 6 in 6 so far.

Also junked 4-4-2 in favour of 4-2-3-1.

I hope these changes work for you. I know how frustrating it can be when you create loads of chances and can't score then they score with only 1 shot at goal in the whole match.

Good luck with your new tactics and players:thup:

Good to see you're sticking with it, Swindon :thup:

The 2016/17 season has started superbly for me, we're top of League 2 after 10 games, have already had a League Cup game against West Ham which netted us some £300K and we're scoring goals from all over the place. Only sour note is that my 6'6" Irish centre back stuffed his ACL and is out for 11 months :(

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]The squad in its current state is not up to the next step, more ins and outs are vital if we are to survive, [/COLOR][/FONT]

Okay, I have holidayed the first season and I'm in the process of reloading to get a team I want to use. The problem is, I don't know which team I should use

I'd suggest you go with a team who have a reputation of over 1,000 unless you want to make it [i]really[/i] challenging for yourself.
