You just want the Nuneaton logo I posted?

I've edited the config.xml file down so that it only refers to the Nuneaton logo. Stick them in a folder and load them up and that Nuneaton logo should be in your game (let me know if it doesn't work). If you meant you wanted a different Nuneaton logo then I can't help you.

Just fired my game up for a bit of late night action. When I left it a week or so ago we'd played five league games (won 4, lost 1, scored 20, conceded 11) and won our opening CL group match at Fenerbahce. Let's see if I can pick up where I left off.

OK. Inside the folder you put the earlier logo I gave you, create a folder called 'small' and put these two files in it, then reload in the preferences menu, etc. It should give you the logo for the league table.

It's only a group stage game but Canvey 3 - 0 Real Madrid felt very good indeed :cool:

Sam Mills (the kid Arsenal snatched off me for £1.1M and I bought back for £12.75M five years later) is proving to be an excellent target man. He plays in the centre of my front three and brings my other two strikers into the game brilliantly. He's got six assists in eight starts so far.

Just a bit. Had to give them my really promising young goalkeeper as part exchange as well :( I was [i]that[/i] determined to get Mills back :D

Congratulations on your season again, your finances are looking very healthy.

On to my 3rd Champions League group game, I'm not sure I mentioned who was in the group, so...

Benfica, Roma, Panathinaikos, FC United.

Lost the first game to Benfica 3-1, before beating Roma 3-0 :confused:

[B]Sutton United - 2012/13 - Blue Square South

[/B]Media prediction: [B]2rd
[/B]Final position: [B]1st
[URL="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/6719/bluesquaresouth.png"]
[/URL][URL="http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/7357/bluesquaresouth5.png"]Final league table [/URL][/B]

[URL="http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/2903/bluesquaresouth6.png"][B]Past positions graph[/B][/URL]

Finally! A good, solid season like this one could with the quality we had in the squad could only end with the title on the bag, and so it did. Despite some early hiccups, including Jabuti breaking a foot and missing the first five months of the competition, we got off to a decent start, and as soon as we took the lead we never let it go. The key to success was a small tweak in our flat 4-4-2 formation, going for a looser, less rigid style, and this paid off in the end.

The season wasn't as easy as the graph may make you think, though. At one point in early December Eastbourne Boro were only one point behind us, but a great run during the traditional Christmas Rush (for a change!) saw us opening a ten-point gap that was really comfortable and never shrinked until the end. Eastbourne sunk, even dropping from the playoff zone, and Eastleigh took the second place with ease in the end, only to fail in the playoffs again. Braintree, who were average at best throughout the season, snuck away with promotion after defeating Bath City in the playoff final.

---

[B]FA Cup - [/B]The only real failure of the season. After two great runs in the preceding seasons, this time we could only manage to beat two teams before falling surprisingly against Weymouth in the 4th qualifying round.

[B]FA Trophy - [/B]Better, but not as good as last year's final appearance. After some difficulties against Merthyr in the qualifying round, we grinded short victories against Grays, Hampton & Richmond and Histon before falling 2-1 at Forest Green in the 4th round. Not bad.

[/B][U]Props

[/U]- [URL="http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/8079/jameskeatings2.png"][B]James Keatings[/B][/URL]: A great sophomore season for the young forward, leading the squad in goals scored and second in assists. He carried us through Jabuti's injury, and still managed some good showings when the Spaniard returned to reclaim his starting role.

- [URL="http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/5653/jabuti3.png"][B]Jabuti[/B][/URL]: He's back. Oh boy, is he back. He could only play in the second half of the season, but still managed seventeen goals and an outrageous thirteen assists in only twenty-five appearances. He's starting to lose some pace due to age, but he's still [I]that[/I] good.

- [URL="http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/1497/mansourassoumani.png"][B]Mansour Assoumani[/B][/URL]: Our first full international player, 30-year-old Assoumani played a few games for his home nation, Comores, some of them in awkward dates. He was rock solid at the back, complementing and helping Mantovani, who also had a much improved season. Besides, their surnames sound well together :p.

- [URL="http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/9770/kevinroberts.png"][B]Kevin Roberts[/B][/URL]: Another new signing, Roberts came to show Dawson how it's done on the ball-winning midfielder role. His stats aren't that impressive, but he was a rock in our midfield, stealing balls left and right and adding some key goals and assists. And, even more important, not getting sent off every now and then.

- [URL="http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/6848/richiebaker.png"][B]Richie Baker[/B][/URL]: The biggest surprise of the season. After an average debut year, Baker was supposed to be Greenhalgh's backup on the right wing (with Christian Nanetti making the left side his own), but once again Greenhalgh was "only" good, while Baker had a breakout season, with twelve goals and eight assists to his name, and stole the starting role in the end.

[B]Next season's goals

[/B]I'll one-up the usual "just survival" goals after a promotion, since this one was expected and a bit late. I'm aiming for top half minimum, maybe with a look at the playoff spots if the chance presents itself. The first goal, though, is fixing our pitch. Ugh. Money may be a problem, too: no good FA Cup run -> red numbers.

I appear to have gone to the Kevin Keegan school of management since we won the Premier League title. Scored 28, conceded 16 in our 8 league matches so far :D We're top of the table though, so I'm happy enough. And Man Utd are yet to win this season, so looking like their 3rd relegation from the PL in 5 seasons :cool:

Karma is catching up with me. Just signed a young Zambian left winger, and two days after joining one of my backup defenders injures him in training. Damaged cruciate ligaments, out for 8-10 months. Very funny, FM.

They are now but not when I first used that style. I just downloaded the Level 7 logos, and by that time I was in the Premier League, and the clubs in there were all of a different style. Those logos are designed for FM10, so I'm surprised it threw yours out of alignment :(

[B][SIZE="4"]Dartford - Barclays Premier League - 2035/36 & 2036/37[/SIZE][/B]

Unfortunately I had totally forgotten about keeping up with recording my career so for these two seasons I only have a selection of screenshots. I'll try and get the usual amount of screenies for the next season.

Long story short, I (during 2035) decided that like Dafuge is now trying, I would like to establish an entire squad of Dartford's own and have them challenge for honours.

And so the mission began...

I have sold a number of key players and pretty much every promising youth player that wasn't my own (big thanks to Man City for taking ALL of them off my hands.)

The only players I have kept are the veterans and the players who have a special relationship with the club. Unfortunately Tiaguinho after three seasons of wanting to leave, had bugged me enough and I got him sent off to Juventus for £20million.

I also managed to get back some of my promising youths who had moved on previously for good money. These are the only transfers I permitted into the club.

[url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/transfers-26.jpg][B]Transfers - 2035/36[/B][/url]

The performances of the side began to slump almost immediately and in the first season (2035/36) we were [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/leaguetable-17.jpg][B]pipped to the title by Birmingham of all teams.[/B][/url] We did however find some positives from that season in that we [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/carlingcupfinal-1.jpg][B]beat Birmingham in the Carling Cup final[/B][/url] and also managed to [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/facupfinal-6.jpg][B]pick up the FA Cup trophy as well.[/B][/url]

The next season (after more departures) seen us sitting around the 8th-4th spot for the nearly the entire but surprisingly enough we had a semi-decent run towards the end were we ended up closing in on 1st place Scunthorpe (..don't ask.) In the end [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/leaguetable-18.jpg][B]Scuny pipped us by 3 points and we finished runners up yet again.[/B][/url]

This year we did rubbish in every competition open to us.

[url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/transfers-27.jpg][B]Transfers - 3036/37[/B][/url]

I'm really up for the challenge of getting these players up to the mark as currently [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/markogrigic.jpg][B]Grgic[/B][/url] and [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/jankarg.jpg][B]Karg[/B][/url] (although I might sell the latter soon) are really dragging them through the mud.

This is the [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/currentsquad.jpg][B]current squad[/B][/url] and as you can see, potential or not, it's got a lot of work to do.

But I'm positive about it all. With the finances [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/currentfinances.jpg][B]looking good[/B][/url] as usual and having been named the [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/GOAT.jpg][B]greatest of all time[/B][/url] finally, I can just sit back and see what happens.

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

Internationally...

I failed with Spain big time as we crashed out of the Euro Play-offs to Portugal: [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/Spainvsportugalleg1.jpg][B]Leg 1[/B][/url] [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/Spainvsportugalleg2.jpg][B]Leg 2[/B][/url]

As you can imagine..I'm starting to think international management just isn't for me.

I then got offered to Italy job again and I accepted it without even looking at the squad - when I did, I quit.

Then this summer (2037) Mother Russia came calling (always liked Russia for some reason) and I took over their team for their Confederations Cup campaign which [url=http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv154/jonnycurrie/confederationscup.jpg][B]we beat Argentina in the final on penalties.[/B][/url]

[SIZE="4"]Cambridge City 2013/2014 season review[/SIZE]

I'm too gutted to do one.......... because of [URL="http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx359/ctidcarl/Gutted.png"]this[/URL]

I'd hovered around the play-offs all season after my media prediction of 17th, and clinched a Play Off place with a game to spare.

So, it was Snackpot County at home - who I managed to beat 2-1 and then for the return leg at Edgeley Park.

As you can see, they raced into a 2-0 lead giving me an aggregate deficit of 3-2, when just after half time, we scored, levelling the tie.

There I was, all geared up for extra time when in the 4th minute of Fergie Time, they got and scored a penalty....... I was devastated!!

The cups - nothing to write home about.

All this as well as turning down the opportunity to be the manager of Hartlepool and [URL="http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx359/ctidcarl/joboffer.png"]Crewe Alex.[/URL]

Next season - hoping for a promotion challenge (obviously), and a good goalscorer..... it was my lack of goals during the season that ultimately cost me, as my defence was pretty good.

Just before the end of the season, I signed Vincent Pericard on a free and he'll join me on July the first........ hopefully he'll be the answer.

My other MAJOR concern is my spiralling debt - almost £300k and our gate receipts are bobbins as we only get crowds of between 5-600

Gentlemen, I have a quandary.

After a fairly hectic schedule, I decided to rest my first team with a home game against Rotherham in the JPT on the horizon (we're in L1, they in L2). My second string hammer them 5-1, showing impressive composure in front of goal and motivation too. Only...it was a league game (Rotherham flitting just above relegation, I later found out...), and it was our best performance this season by miles!

So...what do I do?

So gonna see about starting this up again tomorrow. Think I'm in October now. Youth facilities upgraded to adequate and am in the top half of the league. Found myself leaking money now by buying one too many players than needed. :D Planning to sell some players next year though to make room for some of my youngsters. Players getting used to the formation change and I'm still in touching distance and all competitions so by the time the staidum upgrade is completed next game month I expect us to be on a steady stream of results expecting some financial boost from the extra 10k+ seats.
I think I have Copa America with Brazil next year. Been playing some friendlies against fodder opposition to try out some players who've been performing well at domestic level. Will ramp up the difficulty level soon though in an aim to test out who's ready for the challenge of being Wordl Cup and Copa America winners. The next season update will be then and hopefully the new facilities will bring through more youth quality. That's the plan now that I'm established. To buy in and bring through yong players who're ready for the Prem. Will still have to keep a lot of the established guys I have but expecting to trim some vets as I have enough players entering their prime and the bench will be for youth now.

Right now (forum curse be damned) we're on course to hold onto our title, we've only dropped five points in the first fifteen games of the season, we've scored fifty two goals in those games, and after leaking like a sieve early in the season we've tightened up the defence as well. We've qualified from our CL group with a game to spare and we're into the quarter finals of the League Cup. All going well so far.

Last season was a big year for the all-T&M squad as they got back to winning ways with a major European trophy in the Europa League. This year we were looking to win one of the big ones, the Premier League and the Champions League.

This was a superb achievement as our league form finally returned to help us win the title. The decline of Stoke helped us but Spurs and Watford provided us the challenge.

[COLOR=black][B][URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/TootingMitchamvJuventus.png"]UEFA Super Cup[/URL][/B] - a convincing win over a good Juventus side.[/COLOR]

League Cup - Finalists
FA Cup - 5th Rd

I started the league campaign fairly well without hitting the heights i expected. However by october it had all fallen apart as the senior players turned in some really awful performances and i slid down the league. My form picked up after xmas as i picked some of the younger players in the team but i stayed in midtable and way off the european places. The problems were caused by so many players wanting to leave for a bigger club and the morale suffered as a result.
I put out a mixture of reserves and first teamers in the league cup and they reached the final before being outclassed by Man City 1-0.
In the FA cup i had lost 2-1 to Man City only 2 weeks before the league cup final.
My form in the CL was very different as i was generally strong in most matches.
With a tough group of Bayern, Nantes and Sporting i topped the group after 2 draws against Bayern. In the first knockout round a 3-0 home win was enough to get past Marseille. I easily went past Benfica and was surprisingly comfortable against Arsenal in the semi's when i could have won by more.

I faced Bayern again this season and the [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/clfinal33.jpg"]final[/URL] was another very tight affair with the only goal in the 89th minute.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/transfers33.jpg"]Transfers[/URL]

My only major purchases were [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/marini32.jpg"]Marini[/URL] as the fourth striker and Joyce as a promising right back, signed from under Liverpools nose as they hadn't offerered him a FT contract as he had only come though a few weeks earlier. A few reserve players left, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/victor33.jpg"]Victor[/URL] was 3rd choice left back and not really near the team. [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/perez33.jpg"]Perez[/URL] had been displaced as backup by Joyce and was sold. [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/ramos33.jpg"]Ramos[/URL] and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/antonio32.jpg"]Antonio[/URL] were also surplus.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/colwill32.jpg"]Colwill[/URL] came through the youth ranks as a good prospect.


[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/squad33.jpg"]Squad[/URL]

Mucked up the player screens so they are from dec of the following season, some attributes have changed for a few players and stats are different. This is the squad that generally played for the CL winning season and the title winning season the year before.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/paulinho33.jpg"]Paulinho[/URL] and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/hadland33.jpg"]Hadland[/URL] shared the goalie position between them depending on their form.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/hagelstein33.jpg"]Hagelstein[/URL] has been long serving although his form was indifferent and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/joyce33.jpg"]Joyce[/URL] played a lot in the mid part of the season.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/djokic33.jpg"]Djokic[/URL] had been my first choice left back the season before but his form was so bad he played only a few games after oct, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/bartolini33.jpg"]Bartolini[/URL] took over with great affect.

In the centre [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/osbourne33.jpg"]Osbourne[/URL] and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/stojanovic33.jpg"]Stojanovic[/URL] are the main men with [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/castillo33.jpg"]Castillo[/URL] showing his age and relegated to a backup player.

In midfield [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/francisco33.jpg"]Francisco[/URL] and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/hernandez33.jpg"]Hernandez[/URL] started as my first choice pair but Hernandez was poor and was replaced by [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/villalba33.jpg"]Villalba[/URL]. [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/bianchini33.jpg"]Bianchini[/URL] declined badly over the season to become 5th choice, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/andre33.jpg"]Andre[/URL] was the other backup.

On the right [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/aslan33.jpg"]Aslan[/URL] was immense, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/rivera33.jpg"]Rivera[/URL] filled in when Aslan was unavailable.

On the left [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/nogueira33.jpg"]Nogueira[/URL] showed inconsistant form and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/morris33.jpg"]Morris[/URL] showed real improvement when he wasn't injured, Morris is the only player to come though my youth team.

Up front the strikers have been really disappointing, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/delafuente33.jpg"] De La Fuente[/URL] was the best of them, [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/sergio33.jpg"]Sergio[/URL] and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/abraham33.jpg"]Abraham[/URL] struggled and [URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/marini33.jpg"]Marini[/URL] came in to be first choice for the second half of the season and score the challenge completing goal :D.

[URL="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/Thebaker14/fm10/aslan33.jpg"]Star Player[/URL] - Very easy, although not rated my best player Aslan was miles above the rest averaging 7.5
