If you absolutely wanted to create your own club, why not do so with a clean slate? Set up the club with few funds, say 100k, no transfer funds, no players, no backroom staff, low reputation, and then set about your business. Now it looks like you've basically made sure you'll fly up the leagues. I honestly don't see the fun in that. It's obvious some of these players, if not many of them, are way too good for the level you started out at (or even above that as Hernandez are still banging them in in League Two..).

Maybe I'm a strange breed, but the most fun I have with this game is to build up a team and find struggle at every turn. When you then succeed you know you have actually accomplished something.

If you find this fun long-term, however, by all means play like this. It's your game and all that. Just as I play my game how I like, you should play your game how you like. But I do think a save where you are pretty much clicking continue and receiving wins galore will not be very fun in the long term. Racing a Lada with a Ferrari may be fun the first few times, but after a while it becomes stale and predictable.

Car analogies ftw :D

A great way to put it mate, I totally agree. I was manchester united manager and won everything till it became repetitive. I know in Holland struggling in Jupiler League with Haarlem. Oh the joys.

Very well presented thread but I have to agree that it seems too easy, I will keep reading though to see what it's like once you reach the EPL. Javier Hernandez is a beast in the top Mexican league he is way too good for the lower English leagues, he should be getting 50 plus goals a season. Can I ask what starting reputation you gave your club? I had a game just like this on FM08 and it was great fun, did you give yourself a sugar daddy?

If it's possible from now on any chance you could post the players stats for the season, wouldn't mind seeing the best 11's from the season you have played so far. I will keep reading and I think your save will become good once you reach the EPL. Good luck dude.

Yeah with the right tutoring and training he could become a back up for a top EPL side on FM, he was outscoring my players in my days in Mexico he was so good I hated him.

Thanks for the replies, the points made are fair and expected, it's ok, I know my game is totally unrealistic but what I would like to do is have to two save files, 1-this type and 2-normal game.

So a fantasy type game and then another game where I manage real clubs, this is the type of thing I have done on other management games.

I had a game just like this on FM08 and it was great fun, did you give yourself a sugar daddy?.

Yeah it is and yes I did, I did think about starting again in the way that Pangaea said, but at the moment I'm really enjoying this game.

Fair enough that some of the players are too good for the lower levels, but I wanted some players that would be with the club during the hopeful rise to the prem. Javier Hernandez has been great, I didn't know much about him when I set this game up, and shortly after I did he was signed by Man Utd.

If it's possible from now on any chance you could post the players stats for the season, wouldn't mind seeing the best 11's from the season you have played so far. I will keep reading and I think your save will become good once you reach the EPL. Good luck dude.

Ok I will sort that info out and then put it up.

16 players left the club and a further 13 players went out on loan deals.

Stopsley also struggled due to lengthy injury setbacks suffered by Javier Hernandez, John Bostock & Jermaine Beckford

We had a good run in this cup making it to the Southern section final.

We came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in the 1st leg but Southend

Season 8 - Coca-Cola Championship - 2016/2017

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

July 2016

Pre-Season

preseasonjuly2016.jpg

Well another win against GH Academy, a draw against our feeder club Northampton.

Good wins over Galway Utd, Rapids Academy and Radstock.

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

August 2016

august2016.jpg

A tough start and not a good one, narrow defeat against QPR but totally shocking against Hull City.

We led 2-1 against Sheff Utd but they eventually overpowered to record a comfortable win.

Managed to pick up our first point but was disappointed not to win against Crystal Palace.

I was happy with the draw against Bolton, we were behind for a long time, but Hernandez levelled late.

We struggled to get past Cheltenham in the cup, Amautovic scored his first goal for the club to take us

through after extra time. We were superb against Southampton, I wasn't expecting much to be honest.

It leaves me scratching my head and asking "why can't we perform like that more often?"

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

Transfers

transfers1season8.jpg

Fourteen players joined Stopsley and sixteen players left, two of each were loan deals.

I didn't really want to lose Pulhac, Zaluska or Edwards but they wouldn't agree to new contracts.

I'm happy with the signings especially Ernst, Lukovic, Carrick and Amautovic.

Baker (CB) & Roberts (ST) are young players, I'm hoping they will prove good for the future.

September 2016

september2016.jpg

We led 3-1 but Lee Novak scored his 2nd of the game then West Brom levelled at 3-3

when Pablo Sanchez scored from the spot after Phil Bardsley was sent-off on 83 minutes.

We were no match for Watford, Rofe scored the first goal of his loan spell but Watford

added a 4th goal just minutes later.

We cameback from a goal down to lead 2-1 against Middlesbrough, Cameron Jerome was a hat-trick

hero for Boro with goals on 81 & 83 minutes adding to his leveller on 53 minutes.

Watford beat us for a 2nd time in the month, this time it was a closer affair but a strike from

Harrie Gommans on 19 minutes was enough to see them into the next round.

Stopsley came up against Harchester Utd for the 15th time and Harchester were 2-0 up after

just 25 minutes. James Wallace pulled a goal back on 85 minutes but Harchester held on for their

7th win against Stopsley Utd.

The game against Derby wasn't great, but at least it was a clean sheet, that's

something Stopsley haven't been looking like keeping very often.

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

October 2016

october2016.jpg

Stopsley started the month still looking for a league win, they got it in a thriller against Ipswich.

Victor Moses gave Ipswich a 28th minute lead, but spells just before

and just after half time turned the game firmly in Stopsley's favour,

Marko Amautovic 41' & 45+1' sent Stopsley into the break 2-1 up.

Javier Hernandez 46' & 49' then saw them race into a 4-1 lead, Aaron Doran

pulled a goal back for Ipswich on 52 minutes and when Victor Moses scored

again on 85 minutes it was a nervy finish but Stopsley held on.

Lewis Grabban gave Swansea a 2-0 half-time lead, Hernandez pulled 1 back

early in the 2nd half but Stopsley couldn't find another.

Goals from Mayor 13' & Hernandez 38' saw Stopsley gain their 2nd win

with a 2-0 trumph over Peterborough Utd.

Javier Hernandez netted 3 minutes into injury time to grab a point against Reading,

John Bostock saw red on the stroke of half time against bottom club Wigan, Paul Downing

gave Stopsley a 67th minute lead but Wigan shared the points thanks to Fernando Usero.

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

Championship Full Table

Harchester United in Top Spot!

Harchester Utd lead the Championship by 1 point, Bolton are 2nd and Wolves are 3rd.

Have you recieved any big offers for Hernandez?

With a silly strike rate like that, I'm amazed you've kept hold of him.

Well ..... yeah he has been linked with many clubs, had a lot of messages saying that managers/teams are interested but we have never had an official bid made for him.

November 2016

november2016.jpg

Marko Amautovic scored twice with his 2nd coming 3 minutes into injury time to

earn Stopsley a point against Wolves. Amautovic opened the scoring but Wolves hit

back and when they took the lead on 90 minutes they looked set to win.

We dominated against Millwall but couldn't take any of the numerous chances

that we created, was very disappointed to lose and not at all pleased with the ref

for giving them a very soft penalty on 18 minutes.

Made a bad start against Portsmouth and was expecting the worst when Goddard

gave them the lead after just 7 minutes, but we cameback strong to take the points.

We carried the form into the game against Plymouth and Amautovic put us ahead

after just 4 minutes, Beckford wrapped up the win with a strike on 84 minutes.

We made it 3 wins in a row with 4-1 away win over Southampton, Hernandez opened

the scoring on 27 minutes but The Saints were level 8 minutes later when Tom Heaton

put the ball into his own net, the players didn't let their heads drop and instead the setback

spurred them on. Hernandez 41' & Amautovic 44' gave Stopsley a comfortable lead.

Renatinho pounced on a loose ball on 60 minutes to make it 4-1 and secure another 3 points.

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

Latest Transfer Deals

freetransfersnov2016.jpg

Stopsley Utd made 5 signings during October and November, Keeper Jan Rauw has joined on loan

from Stopsley's parent club AC Milan and Bruno Pilatos is back at the club for a 2nd spell.

3 young Spaniards have joined Stopsley, the club wanted to have a better look at the

players but with the free transfer period close to closing Woodward decided to take a

chance and signed them on full contracts.

"It's not a big risk anyway, they are free, the wage deals are good but obviously

not big big money, so I see no problem with giving these 3 players a chance to show

us what they can do at the club. I've liked what I've seen so far and I think

they could surprise people who haven't seen or heard of the lads."

A closer look at the Spanish trio.......

Germán Rosado, Alfonso Ramos, Jordi Soto.

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

December 2016

december2016.jpg

The winning run came to an end but we played well against Cardiff, it was

a similar game to the recent fixture with Millwall, we created a lot more chances but

failed to take them. Hammond 77' & Peters 80' made Stopsley rue the missed chances.

Stopsley bounced back to beat Doncaster and Hull City and it was looking good

when the team took a 2-0 lead against Sheffield Utd, however the Blades fought

back in a 9 goal thriller at Bramall Lane. click for game overview

Stopsley responded well in the next game thumping Blackpool 5-1 with young Spaniard

Germán Rosado netting his 2nd goal for the club. Rosado made it 3 in 3 when he scored

the only goal of the game on 27 minutes against Queens Park Rangers.

Chesterfield were next up in the FA cup 3rd round, Hernandez netted a first half

hat trick and with Palsson also the scoring the game was won by half time.

Amautovic added a 5th goal on 74 minutes and Stopsley go into the New Year in great form.

January 2017

janauary2017.jpg

The first game of the year was against league leaders Bolton, it was looking

good as we took a 2-0 lead but they were quick to pull a goal back.

Paul Huntington scored the winner for Bolton on 88 minutes. More Details

We drew the next 3 games starting with a 0-0 against West Brom, Germán Rosado

gave us a 14th minute lead against Crystal Palace but Colin James levelled on 43 minutes.

We then drew 1-1 with Watford, Germán Rosado was on the scoresheet again.

Next up was the FA cup 4th round, we were at home against Harchester utd.

It proved to be a five goal thriller and in the 16th meeting between the two clubs

we managed to seal only our 4th win thanks to a very late strike by Rosado. More Details

Germán Rosado was on the scoresheet for the fourth game running when he gave

us the lead against Swansea City after just 6 minutes, we were held to a fourth

league draw in a row when Stephan Ward made it 1-1 on 78 minutes.

We then travelled to Middlesbrough and a Lewin Nyatanga own goal put us

ahead on 25 minutes, Middlesbrough hit back through Oniforos Roushias 31'

and Cameron Jerome 38' to lead 2-1. Javier Hernández squared the game in

first half injury time and we were held to a fifth Consecutive league draw.

January Transfers

The offer from Spurs was too good to turn down, it's worth an initial

£3.4m and will rise by £1.3 when/if Amautovic scores 30 goals.

Gianpaolo Bertelli then made the move in the opposite direction as

we used some of the money from the Amautovic deal.

Scott Loach was signed to come and be our number one as I see

Tom Heaton more as a back up keeper for us, Kevin Foley was

recommended by one of my scouts and will provide competition

for Phil Bardsley at right back.

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

February 2017

february2017.jpg

It was 0-0 at half time against Ipswich but we took control in the second half

to final end the run of draws and secure a deserved victory and 3pts. More Details

The next game against Harchester Utd turned into a shocker, it started well

with Martyn Waghorn giving us the lead on 6 minutes. Harchester levelled

through Daniel Golebiewski on 29 minutes, things were still looking ok with

both sides looking to win the game, Miguel Pallardo put Harchester ahead on

74 minutes and then Stopsley fell apart, Bjorn Helge Riise 76' made it 3-1.

Pallard got his 2nd from the spot on 83 minutes and Golebiewski scored his

2nd goal and Harchester's fifth in the 87th minute.

We then faced a trip to Anfield for the FA cup 5th round, confidence

was low and Liverpool were expected to win by a comfortable margin.

They did win and our goal was bombarded with over 20 shots, but despite being

outplayed for most of the game we came away with a respectable scoreline. More Details

Gianpaolo Bertelli put us head against Derby on 41 minutes, but a quick

double from Curtis Main in the second half gave Derby the 3pts. More Details

Will Hoskins scored after just 5 minutes to give Peterborough the lead.

Javier Hernández levelled on 21 minutes but Hoskins restored the lead

for Peterborough 2 minutes into the second half, Andros Townsend

rescued a late point for us with a strike on 88 minutes.

before half time to give us a comfortable 2-0 win.

April 2017

april2017.jpg

April started with an 8 goal thriller away at Plymouth Argyle, We were 3-1

down after 50 minutes but cameback to secure a great win. More Details

We carried that form on to our next game and were too good for Southampton.

Pálsson (2) and Hernández scored to give us a fine 3-0 win. More Details

The next game was one to forget, we were very poor and the less said

about Cardiff City's 5-1 win the better. Pratley, Chopra (2) and Thompson (2)

scored for Cardiff with Germán Rosado scoring our consolation goal.

Victor Pálsson scored after 12 minutes to give us the lead against Doncaster.

Jamil Adam denied us victory with a strike on 90 minutes.

July 2017

Pre-Season

I arranged a League tournament at Stopsley Park, Dunstable and Hitchin accepted

our invitation but Bedford, Luton, Stevenage & MK Dons turned us down so we invited St Albans.

Results in more detail........

Transfers So Far...

Nine players in and nine players out so far, We have spent £1.8m and I'm

confident that these players will do a good job for us in our push for promotion.

I didn't want Andros Townsend to leave but he wouldn't accept

a new deal, so I will be interested to see where he ends up going.

I wasn't planning to sell Tom Heaton but the offer came in from Spurs

and I feel that Jan Sebek is good enough cover for Scott Loach anyway.
