Hi dafuge me and my mate were wondering if we could use your idea of taking a small club to glory but with the lowest scottish clubs would that be ok.

The Scottish leagues do not have clubs promoted to the lowest league, so it wouldn't work.

Not strictly true any longer.

There is no direct relegation from the Scottish Third Division but since the 2005/06 season if a club finishes bottom for three successive seasons then they will be dismissed from the league.

whether that's in the game is a different matter of course!

I doubt it. You'd be relying on an unlikely circumstance and having to holiday for at least three seasons!

Germany, Spain or Italy would all be possible. Or you could try Gundo or iseemonsters challenges which are similar to this but in random european or south american nations..

Due to technical errors (ie my computer is rubbish) I have had to reinstall FM08 and have lost my Kings Lynn game.

Holidaying now so will let you know my new team some time soon. But at least it will let me read back through the 10 or so pages that have been added to this thread in the last day or so.

So I won promotion through the playoffs after a thriller of a semi-final tie...and then this

Playoff Final

Had Daryl Clare suspended for the final, but the new hero at causeway lane...Luis Cumbers showed his magic once again.. and I´m ready for the Blue Square Premier!

Will have to do some changes to the squad if I´m to do anything else than fight to survive relegation I think

End of season squad

Tyler - how did Luis Cumbers do for you? I have him as back up AMC but my fans think he is my worst player and my confidence is slipping as a result </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Well let stats speak for themself

Cumbers 08/09

I use him a AMC aswell, after a slow start he´s been almost the only reason for my promotion, fans player of the year by the way, so I guess it´s the opposite of you...

My sanity has been saved. I took a wild stab by going to the second games shop in my area which never gets games anywhere near the release date and to my surprise they had multiple copies of FM08 sitting on the shelf.

I'm about to head off to be now but ill be up and running in the morning. I'm choosing not to install the beta patch as it doesn't seem to have improved all that much.

If someone would be able to send the the Unibond and Southern Premier League kits via email that would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou all and good luck

This is ********, what a stupid f**cking bug!

Has it been posted in the bug forum? i cant see it ?

I didnt get my contract renewed even though i got promoted first season and ended up 12 second season.

I find this to be one of the biggest bug in a long time, and this challenge is a waste of time and useless.

FOR ****S SAKE SI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want my money back icon_mad.gif

This happened to me, the only option is to download FMM and give yourself a new contract. However you will be disqualified from the challenge as I found out. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

as only two people have had this experiance i would go with what others have said that its down to you setting to high expectations but hey im not playing your game so i could be totally wrong.

just would have thought this would have effected more people if was an actual "bug" </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Can't agree that is a bug either. The long term ambition bar breaks yes but if you get what the board ask you keep your job it seems. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

What the hell are you talking about ?!? they were pleased with me, i exceeded their expectation wich was to fight bravely against relegation.

I GOT WHAT THEY WANTED AND MORE, READ THE POST!

Im looking forward till this happenes to you. good gaming.

Yes. KaNovi started one, I posted in it for some clarity, and it was closed by the testing team sharpish as a known issue.

I'd rather assumed it was sorted in the patch tbh.

Lets see if you get lucky again dafuge icon_smile.gif

Hope so

If it's been logged as a known issue then I would expect it to be fixed in the patch, something like this can't be allowed to remain in the game.

By the end of my season I should be in a good position to test it out. I've just been promoted to League 2 and my contract is up for renewal at the end of the season. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Question for those people who have got new contracts - NOT ABOUT BUG!!

Are you still on part time contracts? Can you only get full time if your club turns pro?

whats the chairman like regarding results

He's been fine for me, but I won the league in the first season and didn't go on much of a bad spell, so haven't tested how he would react to a poor run yet.

He was listed as 'listening to offers' when I took over, however now in the BSP he's 'enjoying life at the club'.

Seems to be tolerant about the budget going down too, mine went into negative figures for a while, and the board didn't get too worked up about it.

Harrow 4 - 0 Braintree

Sutton Utd 1 - 3 Harrow

Ephraim (3)</pre>

Dominant month icon_cool.gif Apart from a little slip against Tiverton who seem to be my early bogie team. Dorchester just refuse to lose at the moment though. Won every game again, I'm 8 points behind them in 2nd place now. Hope they crash. Ephraim still scoring for fun, awesome little striker, and Hutchinson is finally doing what his attributes suggest he should be doing! Plenty of assists, a goal and generally all round amazingness got my attacking midfielder, Barron this award, pipping Hutchinson who finished 3rd. I also got some more recognition which is always nice.

Board turned down my requests for both a feeder and a parent club which was a pain in the arse. They're still mad at me too, it's ridiculous. I'd better get a new contract!

Try and get Knights if you can aswell, he was willing to join me after his release from Yeovil icon14.gif.

He just cracked in a 30 yarder in a 2-0 win against Southport icon_cool.gif.

Stamford - Conference South 2008/09 - End of Season Update

Stamfords first season in the Conference South had us predicted to finish in the relegation zone, and a 2 year plan to establish ourselves in the division.

After a bit of a rocky start by not having a remotely full squad for the first few games of the season and still winning at least one of those games, I had some reasonable optimism.

Shame my Ass Man still wants me to offload most of my squad regardless.

Due to a 9 game undefeated streak including a run of 5 wins in a row, the team managed to escape relegation and finished in a respectable 11th place.

Final Table

Season Graph

Confidence

Transfers

Apart from the first 2 signing the whole season was done after the beta patch was applied. I was using the default 4-4-2 formation with no changes and it seemed to be working a lot better than in my attempts with other teams.

He did really well for me coming off of the bench. In the games he started he didnt seem to play as well. scored 3 or 4 30 yarders over the course of the season though

Some interesting facts about Whitby.

It was formerly called Streonshael

Captain James Cook served his apprenticeship in Whitby

In 1828 Whitby was the 7th biggest port in the Kingdom for shipbuilding

Whitby was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'

The Magpie Cafe there does the best fish and chips in England. FACT.

Some interesting facts about Whitby.

It was formerly called Streonshael

Captain James Cook served his apprenticeship in Whitby

In 1828 Whitby was the 7th biggest port in the Kingdom for shipbuilding

Whitby was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'

The train station was used as the Hogsmeade Station in Harry Potter

Bram Stoker wrote Dracula there and it hosts hundreds of goths because of it.

The Magpie Cafe there does the best fish and chips in England. FACT.

It's a top top place.

Good luck icon14.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

You live/been there? I love the look of the place.

Stamford - Conference South 2008/09 - End of Season Update

Stamfords first season in the Conference South had us predicted to finish in the relegation zone, and a 2 year plan to establish ourselves in the division.

After a bit of a rocky start by not having a remotely full squad for the first few games of the season and still winning at least one of those games, I had some reasonable optimism.

Shame my Ass Man still wants me to offload most of my squad regardless.

Due to a 9 game undefeated streak including a run of 5 wins in a row, the team managed to escape relegation and finished in a respectable 11th place.

Confidence

Transfers

Apart from the first 2 signing the whole season was done after the beta patch was applied. I was using the default 4-4-2 formation with no changes and it seemed to be working a lot better than in my attempts with other teams.

Good effort! icon_smile.gif

Default tactics working wonders for me too. The defult 5-3-2 with minor teaks has carried me to League 2 with Stamford and doing well there too.

Dafuge, what is your long term plan now you are in League 2? I just checked mine and got this

Do they expect relegation or bug?

Mini Update: Stamford: League 2: 11/12

- 2nd in the league thanks to the Welsh Destroyah!

Are you an example that the bug with confidence and contracts can be avoided?

Because you still have a contract and are in League 2?

Yes. KaNovi started one, I posted in it for some clarity, and it was closed by the testing team sharpish as a known issue.

I'd rather assumed it was sorted in the patch tbh.

Lets see if you get lucky again dafuge icon_smile.gif

Hope so

If it's been logged as a known issue then I would expect it to be fixed in the patch, something like this can't be allowed to remain in the game.

By the end of my season I should be in a good position to test it out. I've just been promoted to League 2 and my contract is up for renewal at the end of the season. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

It may be one of those bugs that will only be fixed on new games unfortunately. So perhaps some people just starting can look for it as well.

Remember, you CAN requests contracts yourself and don't need to wait for the board to do it for you. Waiting on a single performance evaluation in any job is trouble.

note: I see this as a bug only if you've met all your objectives. If you don't meet your objectives, don't be surprised to not see a new contract if you wait until the very end.

Yes it can. I did what they asked (well a bit better) and I was fine.

Mangotsfield Town Season '08-'09

The board wants to win the Blue Square South by the end of five years.

One of my best signings was a Cypriot from Doncaster who had a bit of an anger problem. Nonetheless he was a firm fan favourite

The other key signing was our key striker who banged them in with regularity.

After finishing third in the league, after Salisbury ran away with the league on 92 points. It came down to a tense Playoff Final

I have to say but our goalkeeper was AMAZING throughout the whole playoff run, he made some great, great saves and was almost unbeatable in the penalty shootout.

Anyways, we are up to the Blue Square Premier!

Can i just ask you guys how much detail do you change for individual player instructions?

By the way Jimbo, Ive signed Kyle Wilson!!!
