dafuge's FM10 challenge

8,432 posts in this topic

2 games into the season, I'm going to risk the curse to say... I think we may be okay.

2 games. 2 wins. 10 goals. 4-0 and 6-1 to Swansea and Coventry. Bring on a recently relegated club, lets see how I fair against them. It's worth noting that Swansea came 3rd last season.

We beat Port Vale 4-0 in the League Cup 1st round, and face Swansea in the 2nd.

I think I might leave it there for tonight, and pick up again in the morning, hopefully to defeat Notts Co.

This was our final year as a club who signed players, as of next year we will be moving into a new era in a new stadium where we were using only players who came through our own youth system.

[COLOR=black][B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/BarclaysPremierLeague-27.png"]League Table[/URL][/B][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/BarclaysPremierLeague-2-22.png"]League Positions Graph[/URL][/COLOR][/B]

We spent the whole season chasing Chelsea, then out of no where, Arsenal won it.

[B][COLOR=black][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/WatfordvTootingMitcham-1.png"]Community Shield[/URL][/COLOR][/B] - we were lucky to get away with the win here.

[B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamUnited-48.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - we were pretty unlucky to [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamvManUtd.png"]lose to Man Utd[/URL].

[COLOR=black][B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamUnited-2-32.png"]FA Cup[/URL][/B] - it was a lucky run to the final, where we met an inferior team but came away [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamvCrystalPalace.png"]with the win[/URL].[/COLOR]

[B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamUnited-3-27.png"]UEFA Champions League[/URL][/B] - the [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/UEFAChampionsLeague-17.png"]group stage[/URL] looked difficult, but it turned out to work in our favour. The run to the final was surprisingly easy, but the team we met in the final was a surprise. Even with the sending off, [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamvManUtd.png"]we did enough for the win[/URL].

[COLOR=black][B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamUnited-4-27.png"]Transfers[/URL][/B] - big news as three of the remaining four signings were sold off for big prices. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamUnited-5-20.png"]Squad[/URL][/B] - just the one player left now, it will be interesting to see what effect it has next season.[/COLOR]

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/9JonPual-4.png"]Jon Punal[/URL] - he was our top scorer yet again, but the time has come to say goodbye. As our last remaining signed player, his transfer will signify the start of our new era as an all-T&M squad.

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/10BrianJones.png"]Brian Jones[/URL] - my big hope to fill the striker role hasn't really lived up to it. This is a big worry to me.

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/8GeoffBowles.png"]Geoff Bowles[/URL] - he's done a decent job in filling the AMC role, which was always going to be difficult with the departure of Tom McGoldrick.

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/5BrianBrown.png"]Brian Brown[/URL] - he'll be the next full time captain of my club, he's been a star.

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/1CraigSills-3.png"]Craig Sills[/URL] - one of the unsung heroes of the early days of the youth team. Selling the Spaniard was one of the best things we did.

Next season will be the start of an exciting era, not only will we be playing in the 65779 all seater 'Dafuge Arena' but with the sale of Jon Punal, we will be doing it with an all-T&M team.

Despite the league position, this season was a massive success with the long awaited cup success. The Champions League win was huge and gives us a great platform to go into next season with.

Next up will be the World Cup with Serbia.

Well done Dafuge, even though you came 3rd, your doing brilliant with just players used from your youth academy.

------------------------------------------------------

I should get my season done over the weekend, possibly tomorrow, but depends whether I go to a party on the night, if I go to that then I will get the season done on Sunday more than likely.

We have been in decent form lately winning 4 from our last 6 and we sit 12th in the table, as long as we get stability in the league this season, we can challenge for promotion next season.

I think there will be a lot of interest in quite a few of my players in the summer from PremierLeague teams and I may have to sell if the price is good, which could hinder our chances next year for promotion.

[/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4][COLOR=DarkRed][COLOR=Blue]Media Prediction: 19th
Actual Position : 2nd

[/COLOR][/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE]Lost the title on the last day, went into the trip to Oldham needing only a win to win the league, having already been promoted 2 games previous. Went 2 nil down in the first half. Was still nil all in the Northampton game. Got 1 back early in the 2nd half, and as the Northampton game stayed nil all, an equaliser would have done it. Wasn't to be however, and I've lost the title on goal difference. Promotion nonetheless, and a chance to really progress the club as surely we'll have to go beyond our 3 thousand stadium now.

Final game in the BSP...

[code]1. Oxford City +43 88pts
2. Luton +38 88pts[/code]

Couldn't be tighter. We're playing 23rd place Kidderminster, Luton have 4th placed Oxford and ofc the goal difference advantage lies with us, so I'm a bit confident.

After another useless nights sleep (I'm starting to think my body won't allow me to leave FM for a night), I thought I'd get cracking with FC United again. We're now on a 5 game win streak in all comps, with 18 goals and 1 conceded. Notts County have been our toughest challenge yet. We only won 1-0.

[CENTER][SIZE=3][B][COLOR=Blue]Oxford City[/COLOR] - 2011/2012[/B][/SIZE][/CENTER]

[I][B][U]Blue Square Premier[/U][/B] - Prediction: 24th // [URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/odds.png"]Promotion odds: 33-1[/URL] // Goal: Safe mid-table finish
Final Position: 1st - [URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/finaltable.png"]Table[/URL] - [URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/leagueprogress.png"]Progress[/URL][/I]

The squad which took Oxford City to the Blue Square South championship remained largely intact; most arrivals were additions to our pre-existing core while the departures were the original squad I took over but had contracts still to expire.

Given this, we started the season surprisingly well. Our defence was a bit leaky but our attack was even more vicious than the previous season with Somma and Jones providing threats out wide. In the engine room, Chris Herd was brought in to accompany Mark Millar who kept his first team slot.

By midseason, we were on an massive 58 points, with an 11 point gap between us and our closest rivals. However, as the season progressed our weakness would be at the back and the magnifying glass of the second stanza would focus on that. And it burned.

We lost games we couldn't score in, and we drew games we could simply because we had to attack to survive. Injuries to Fitzharris and Herd disrupted our attacking play. We had only four clean sheets in the last 30 games!

By the final month, we trailed Luton by two points. However, by the final day we were back on top due to our collosal goal difference from the first half of the season, and victory over 23rd placed Kidderminster would suffice to see us take the title. A sound 5-0 victory meant that Luton's win over the other Oxford was irrelevant, and Oxford City took its second straight league title. With it, came the prize of the Football League.

[I][U]Awards[/U][/I]: Sean Fitzharris, Mark Millar (Blue Square Premier Player's Select); Victor Death (Manager of the Season)

[I][B][U]FA Cup [/U][/B]- Goal: Fourth Qualifying Round
Reached Third Round - [URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/facupprogress.png"]Progress[/URL][/I]

This was a satisfying performance.

After removing Chippenham with a 5-0 win in the final Qualifying Round, we drew League One Leyton Orient at home. However, we managed to get a 1-0 victory in a well matched affair. League Two Lincoln were next, and we won quite convincingly in the end 4-1.

However, the Third Round tie was to be our final, drawing as we did Premier League Reading. A 6-0 thrashing was dished out to us, but a £200,000 windfall was nice compensation.

[I][B][U]FA Trophy[/U][/B]- Goal: First Round
Reached Second Round - [URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/fatrophyprogress.png"]Progress[/URL][/I]

In a way it was disappointing this coincided with our loss of defensive form as we demolished Blue Square South Bath 3-0 in the First Round, but then conceded three goals to Weston-super-Mare in a 3-2 defeat, despite dominating the game.

[URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/seanfitzharris.png"]Sean Fitzharris[/URL] - Another solid season, he was our top performer and despite a big morale loss during January he finished our top performer overall.

[URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/markmillar.png"]Mark Millar[/URL] - Played the playmaker role again with assistance from Chris Herd, but probably is of insufficient quality to make the step up to league football.

[URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/jameskeatings.png"]James Keatings[/URL] - Keatings was our top goalscorer again, with 30 goals and was the second highest BSP goalscorer. Whether he makes the step up to League football is another story, especially given the performance of Duffy over the season.

[URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/darylduffy.png"]Daryl Duffy[/URL] - I had no real need for another striker in the summer, but when I saw his quality I had to snap him up. Would have gotten more game time if it wasn't for the Keatings/Fitzharris combo, but was lethal off the bench and in cover for Fitzharris when he succumbed to injury.

[URL="http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd124/Aeropaus/Oxford%20City/2011-2012/danieljones.png"]Daniel Jones[/URL] - Took over from Marenghi in the left midfield role, and filled a key weakness. Certainly made a very nice contribution to the squad.

[quote name='Almondo']hey a 1-0 is better than losing[/QUOTE]

Too true. Just experienced my first loss of the season, in the Carling Cup to..... Swansea :mad:

I suppose the reason I won the game in the League, was because they were missing Roque Santa Cruz!

He haunted us with 3 goals, and it was in the 94th minute that we equalised to get 3-3. The match went to pens, and it ended 3-1 :(

And we just threw a 4 goal lead away against Scunthorpe, largely due to Alan Smith :mad:

[B]Boreham Wood - 2013/14 - BSP[/B]

Hovered around midtable until I installed the patch, and while we seemed to play worse, we got the results, and finished [url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/promtab.jpg"]4th[/url] after 46 games.

Not sure how I didn't have any CCCs in the final as the only goal was tapped into an empty net after rounding the keeper (sort of), but I don't really care. So league football comes to Borehamwood at the first time of asking.

[B]Key players[/B]

[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/okane4.jpg"]Brett O'Kane[/url] - he won't sign a new deal so I'm considering offering him out to clubs, as he has about half of the football league interested in him.
[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/perry.jpg"]Kyle Perry[/url] - great goal return, but the majority came before I installed 10.3.
[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/mettam.jpg"]Leon Mettam[/url] - his attributes aren't great, but a 20 for determination means I always get a good shift.
[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/pbarr.jpg"]Paul Barr[/url] - can't catch a cold, but everything else is solid.
[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/kikarin.jpg"]Milen Kikarin[/url] - I love guys who can play both full-back slots, and he was Mr Consistent on either flank.
[url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/garcia.jpg"]Raul Garcia[/url] - getting on now, but my vice-captain was again solid as a rock.

I have Paul Bolland, Steven Schumacher and Arnaud Mendy coming in the summer on frees, so I won't be short of midfield depth and steel. Would like another striker and another keeper.

[SIZE="5"]2021/22 - Hendon - League 2[/SIZE]

After last season's play-off misery, I hoped for a push for either automatic promotion or at least a higher league position. Achieved: None of the above.

[SIZE="4"]Media Prediction: [url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/mediapred-14.png]9th[/url]
League Finish: [url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/Coca-ColaLeague2-1.png]8th[/url]
[url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/graph-13.png]Graph[/url][/SIZE]

After a shaky start, we pulled it out the back to finish a not-to-disappointing 8th place. Perhaps the worst feeling is we never really troubled for a play-off place but I hope we can next season.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/transfers-24.png]Transfers[/url]
[url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/squad-35.png]Squad[/url][/B]

A thin squad was probably our downfall (again). I need to start buying and stop releasing where possible.

[SIZE="5"]Cups[/SIZE]

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/lgecup-6.png]League Cup[/url][/B] - Trashed by the Green Army.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/jpt-5.png]Johnstone's Paint Trophy[/url][/B] - Knocked out narrowly by a team in our league although it was probably a deserved loss.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/fac-8.png]FA Cup[/url][/B] - So, so close to an upset against PL ('world-class') Wolves but it was snatched from our grasp in injury time.

[SIZE="5"]Key Players[/SIZE]

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/11JamieCallaghan.png]Jamie Callaghan[/url][/B] - I don't want to give him a mention but kudos to him for getting the most goals for us this season, an allbeit rather disappointing total of 11.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/37LucaSantonocito-1.png]Luca Santonicito[/url][/B] - Captain Luca was in fine form again this season, even if his attributes are seemingly on the decline. 10 assists is a fine contribution.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/41MaikEsajas-1.png]Maik Esajas[/url][/B] - Maik was by far our best player this year. 10 goals and 10 assists is a marvellous contribution and he rightly claimed Fans Player of the Year after just a season with us.

[B][url=http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq266/Cardiovascular_photo/6DannyBryan.png]Danny Bryan[/url][/B] - Despite apparently average attributes, he was brilliant this season, 8 goals and 11 assists showing this.

Finally got a chance to really sink my teeth into my Tiverton game, we're 2nd in the table after 11 games, W6 D3 L2, just one point off the top. The defense is a mess - can't remember what I did on my Merthyr save to sort it out, but we had one of the best in the BSS I remember - but luckily the strikeforce and midfield are top quality, and we're smashing in the goals.

Eight games into the new season (6W-1D-0L in league, just crushed Tonbridge on the FA Cup), and a certain Spaniard has scored 8 goals and ditched 3 assists in three games as a starter and two as a substitute, with a four-week pause for a pulled hamstring in the middle, and playing a grand total of 306 minutes of football. That's one goal scored or created every 28 minutes.

Conclusion: Jabuti is a goddamn legend <3.

In completely unrelated news, Banbury have just beaten Hartlepool 2-0 in the FA Cup 2nd round, after beating Doncaster 1-0 in the 1st. And they are still unplayable.

Hehe, just took a look :)

Yeah bit uncanny that, Fitzharris, Keatings and Gallacher I was aware of via my Hastings game, but Herd just popped up and was a must buy.

Frustratingly, my wage budget is only £8,250, which is totally pathetic for League 2 football. Time to mortgage the increase of club stature to keep the board happy :)

[SIZE=5]SnakeXe's Tiverton Town - Season 1 - 2010/11
[SIZE=2]
[SIZE=4]Story of the Season:
[SIZE=2]After an exhaustive search for players good enough (over 350 trialled, just 15 signed), we started off encouragingly, in and around the playoff spots. Then, [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at193023.png"]this[/URL] happened. :mad:.

However, shortly after this I was recommended to sign a Spaniard named Jabuti by Holyehsauce, and things picked up nicely! Our home form was stupendous, the away from less so, but eventually things evened out into a very promising title challenge.

With [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at185121.png"]two games left[/URL] we were top by 5 points from Woking with a better goal difference. Farnborough (A) and Woking (H) were the two remaining games - victory in either or a draw in the Woking game would be enough.

Disaster struck early in the Farnborough game as we went 1-0 down having had a bright start. This seemed to knock our confidence and we played worse and worse as the game wore on. Unsurprisingly, this isn't the way to claim any points, and we lost.

Luckily, Woking drew, so we [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at185604.png"]won the BSS title[/URL] with a game to spare!

This only left the dead rubber against Woking - I was keen to win just to prove we deserved the title, and the lads did me proud with a [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at190517.png"]2-0 win[/URL].

Jabuti took home [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at191444.png"]various[/URL] [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at191447.png"]awards[/URL], as did [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at191449.png"]I[/URL], so an all-round [URL="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b134/Snakexe/Football%20Manager/Tiverton/2010-11/Screenshot2010-03-06at185742.png"]awesome season was had by all[/URL].

Don't mind in the slightest. Just find it a good way to keep track of the players who have really contributed to the club. I'm looking forward to the day when I have my first Canvey Island youth product join the 100 Club, but that day is a good while off yet. And I like the new format :thup:

And getting promoted as champions is not a bad start to your time at Tiverton :D

Yeah I thought it'd be good to have a way of remembering all the guys from back in the lower-league days, as they don't seem to hold up well on the Best XIs. I had a couple of guys in my Merthyr save who were awesome back in the early days, but no record of them at all now :(

[U][SIZE="3"][B]League:[/B][/SIZE][/U]

Well I will keep it short because it wasn't that interesting to be honest. We rarely put any runs together until the end of the season but in the end it was just too late to make any sort of challenge for top 10 or play-off's. There was soo much inconsistancy throughout the season, good results followed by bad results. I guess it was a good season considering two back to back promotions but still fustrating because we have the potential to be better.

4. [URL="http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/2137/keogh.jpg"]Richard Keogh[/URL] - Solid first season and hopefully he can build on it.

3. [URL="http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/4182/mcleod.jpg"]Izale McLeod[/URL] - Our top scorer, he had a good season without being special but with not that many positives, I suppose this one is!

2. [URL="http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/990/ashleycoleman.jpg"]Ashley Coleman[/URL] - Big signing in the summer and this young defender had a really good debut season for us. He'll hopefully keep improving and will play a big part in the future of this club.

1. [URL="http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1193/mcnamee.jpg"]Anthony McNamee[/URL] - Great season. His pace, trickery and delivery from the left caused problems for all defences in League two.

Starting to worry about someone's age when they're 29. Who are you, Arsène Wenger? :p

A good solid season after two straight promotions :thup:

Well it's the fact he's a winger and yes, I don't like anyone usually over 30!

If he was a central midfielder, I don't think i'd have too many problems but I just hope he don't lose his pace anytime soon!

Hopefully can push higher next season.

Quick update from me since I haven't posted in a while:

Notts Co. brought some much needed money for us to the value of £1.3m, though my keeper and star striker went the other way...

Also, I've just gone out of all the domestic cups this season; and all of my draws have been away to teams in higher divisions (and ones in high placings as well) :rolleyes:. I know it's not asking much but I would like a home cup tie at some point in the near future, rather than having to travel to games I know we won't do well in....

Oh, and the league is [URL="http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu76/midgetram/fm%2010%20dafuge%202013-14/tableprogress.jpg"]going along nicely[/URL], though I do miss the insane amount of goals...

Finally, good luck cookie. :thup: Looking for any team in particular?

Good luck, Holyehsauce :thup: I wish I'd fond Jabuti when I was down in the BSS.

Looks like my FA Cup run will end at the quarter finals this season. Just been drawn away against Chelsea, who are 24 games unbeaten in the competition, a record stretching back just over four years now. And they still haven't even conceded a goal in it for over three years.
