Great season, and hopefully those signings will really help you kick on and achieve another promotion!

Haha, well I got a news item recently saying that a foreign tycoon might take over a club in the division (not mine). If that happens champions is impossible as they will have £50m...

ouch must be a killer to the players. good pre season training though :)
I was going to do a pre season tour with my squad but I'm penny pinching at the moment to try and upgrade everything.

[b][u][SIZE="4"]Season 4 January February and March Update - 2. Deild Karla:[/SIZE][/u][/b]

[b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/55.jpg]Results[/url] | [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/56.jpg]Finances[/url][/b]

I only conceded 7 goals, which isn't too bad. 4 of those were in 2 games so that's not bad, I have also worked out that I hate playing Brazilian clubs. The style they play seems to course havoc with my system which I don't like. We also did take down some bigger clubs and put in some good performances. I am very confident going into this season and I feel we should do well.

My finances have been buoyed by my jet setting across the world which is nice, we have made £67k profit in 3 months which should last us until next season. The thing that keeps getting me is that I can only get £1.5k in sponsorship, some clubs are getting £60k in my division. One club also got taken over and is now the richest in Iceland.

Well I now can scout the whole world and have 8 scouts on the job, they do keep turning up some real jems.

I am starting the season proper tomorrow, time to see if I can beat the £6m club.. What a f****** joke... Saying that their squad is AWFUL compared to mine :)

Well this was a good way to start the league campaign:

[video=youtube;eXwUbsp9WwY]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXwUbsp9WwY[/video]

They had no shots on target as well, kinda shows how insanely good my defensive is...

This is playing with my new 4-4-2 narrow diamond :D I now have a natural AMC who is insane, even it 31 :)

Nope :) I use Control as starting though. I just drew 1-1, I seem to only concede from corners, I need to sort that out...

3rd tier still.

How about this for how bad my strikers are and how good the opposition goal keepers are:

18 shots, 6 on target, none scored. 5 shots, 2 on target they scored. I feel there might be a LITTLE bias in here? 54% possession to me as well...

Oh that team was the division below..

happens. usually bad strikers rather than good keepers though.
strikers getting lazy and taking bad shots.
pick them apart at half time and criticise their performance afterwards etc.
or bench them :P

tone down your attack a bit more and sit them back. they may be too excited and firing too quick? maybe lower the tempo

[b][u][SIZE="4"]Season 4 July Half Season Update - 2. Deild Karla:[/SIZE][/u][/b]

[b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/58.jpg]Results[/url] | [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/59.jpg]League Table[/url][/b]

3 draws, 2 losses and 6 wins +7 goal difference and yet I have only score 14. It's not great but it's getting us by, I am having to create some weird tactics in order to get my best players in the right positions. My latest creation is a 4-1-3-2, not that weird but it is considering I have about 7 strikers on my books!

Expected to finish 11th, bah who's stupid idea was that? I think that person might be getting the sack. The lowest I have been all season has been 5th and that was during the time when I couldn't hit a barn door and lost my only 2 games. Overall I am quite happy, I wouldn't mind to get a good striker who is capable of doing what he's paid to do but without a massive budget and no players wanting a cold summer break on loan I am struggling.

[b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/60.jpg]Finances[/url] | [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/61.jpg]Transfers[/url][/b]

The less said about my finances the better, simply I need promotion this year or I will really struggle.

No transfers due to having no league reputation and being expected to be relegated in that division.

The game after the update was the one a had a touchline ban for, guess what happened? We won 2-0, one of our biggest wins all year...

But my assistant did manage to injure my star DMC for 10-12 days... Luckily there was no fixture for 14 days after :D

Looks like things are going well, despite the problems in front of goal. Get them flowing and you'll be unstoppable :)

Thanks, I really wish there was a way to get them flowing. I have tried everything, it works for one game then stops again which is frustrating.
