dafuge's FM12 challenge

3,482 posts in this topic

Am reloading but storing all my saves in case anyone wants them. I know lots of these will be regularly turning up for you all but I have stored saves so far for:

Lowestoft *9
Chester *10
St Albans *9
FCUM *9
Carshalton *7
Lewes *6
Hendon *5
Northwich *4
Kingstonian *4
Stafford *4
Cambridge C *3
Weymouth *2
Tooting and Mitcham *2
Billericay *2
Bury Town *3
Hitchin *2
Worksop
Hendesford
Marine
North Ferriby
Canvey Island
Redditch
Harrow
Wealdstone (I think these last two were one team last year, but they have split)
Hastings Utd
Margate
Bradford PA

If you want one of the ones for which I have multiples, let me know and I'll let you know which combinations are available with them if you like. Will keep updating this post until I decide who to go for. Im not sure who I'm looking for, but just wanna see what options I can build up for an hour or two.

EDT: Im now only saving games with at least one unique. No point just getting loads of different combinations when its only one team we're after!!

They definitely weren't; but Harrow & Wealdstone is the northern terminus on the Bakerloo Line! :lol:

[quote name='columbouk']Started with Hastings Utd now, despite the fact that I despise the kit. Their 1000 rep is the lowest I got after 2 hours of reloading.[/QUOTE]

Hastings for me as well.

I agree about the kit. Maybe they got a job lot from West Ham in the 60's, and have never had the money to replace it!

[quote name='Dons']Hmm.. When signing scouts now - they already have players on their scouting list. If they have a player with information on, that is based where you cannot manually scout, is that an acceptable signing?[/QUOTE]

That's fine, since you have the scout report.

I have a similar problem - quite fancy Hendon which isnt TOO far from the Emirates, but they play in GREEN, and the idea of managing a team playing in green makes me want to hurl!

Getting the same 6 teams every time, this has never happened before. Infuriating.

[SIZE=5][IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/43/Worksop_Town_FC_Badge.png[/IMG]
Worksop Town FC - The UK's 4th Oldest Football Club (it's true!!)

[/SIZE]Given up looking for Arsenal's next big rivals in Finchley. Decided to go on the same criteria as the last poster and go for Worksop as they do have some pretty smart colours, so:

[SIZE=4][URL="http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/648743187040202871/A7D382FF796B7AE430128D511BDC746E673B352A/"]I will be managing Worksop[/URL][/SIZE].

I noticed just as I was retiring Holiday Man that they were in fact managerless anyway, so I did something which might make me unique - [SIZE=4][URL="http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/648743187040204357/33A76CEF75FC72FD499172293745B0E9CE5BD5C7/"]I got the job by application[/URL]![/SIZE] Dafuge - do you know if that's a first? I feel pretty good about that, gotta say!! No walking into the job by default for me!!!

I've never managed in the BSN before as I've always done this challenge with Boreham Wood before now apart from one jaunt with Hastings United. Will be interesting. Does anyone have a relevant logo pack? Preferably for Premiership teams as well as sub-BSS/BSN teams?

I've been reloading for a while now trying to get something below 1000. Oxford City has come up but Bedford at 1050 is coming up at a ridiculously frequent rate - think the game might be trying to hint at something...

Chesham United for me, just a week ago this side's match had to be abandoned because an opposition player punched the referee. They think that was controversial? That was just the entreé.

My star player by light years, and he's broken his leg in pre-season, and will miss more or less the whole of the first season.

Got a save with Bury Town & Lowestoft.....Fierce Rivals, may be fun to start as the lower bury and see if we can overthrow Lowestoft......or may just keep waiting for north ferriby, or Kendal.


PS: Also have a kingstonian save if anyone wants! Also now an oxford city save

proving difficult to sign players - cant sign any on FT contracts and only part time if they are key players or first teamers. One player went somewhere else for a PT contract on £20 as backup as i offered only NC terms.

I am now the manager of [url=http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii91/Lanthal/FM12%20Oxford%20City/LanthalRowningOverview_Information.png]Oxford City.[/url]

Also... someone needs to tell my [url=http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii91/Lanthal/FM12%20Oxford%20City/AlanJudgeOverview_Profile.png]52 YEAR OLD[/url] goalkeeper that he should probably hang up his boots!

I have decided to be a female character and see what differences the game throws at me.

I will be starting a thread in the career updates forum to keep track and will post a link up here once that is all done.

So... I think I'll be right for a [url=http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii91/Lanthal/FM12%20Oxford%20City/DeanBouzanisOverview_Profile.png]goalkeeper[/url] for a few seasons. Signed a scout who recommended him and to my utter disbelief he signed for me!!

Think I'm likely to get relegated as Worksop :( Cant be bothered going through holidaying again so if that does happen, I'll just go with one of the newly promoted clubs for next year.

Likely good enough till you get to the Championship as I seen him on my Wrexham save and he was likely going to be a leading L1 player.

After reloading some more this morning and getting same teams gone on "Holiday" again to see if I can get any different. Likely pick one soon as want to start:lol:

How far through are you, i've also made a bad start with worksop. Can't seem to get the players in, every time i make an offer several other teams also do so even though they were showing no interest.

Not far in but the team just arent at the races at all. Trying to analyse the match reports but there's not a lot that sticks out as being something that I could actually work on. A couple of players are on specific training focuses (passing and heading in particular) but....

Taken me 4 games to get the first win, no clean sheets so far. Just lost out on a L1 potential LB. He failed a medical 6 weeks ago for me, tried to sign him again only for him to sign for dorchester (in the southern premier for the same key status on half the wages) :mad:

Im currently 31 minutes in and 3-0 up against Oxford City and my attackers are looking good. Bad news is that my RB Trialist has been injured, I really want a good look at him as he seems very good.

Edit: Final score was 5-0. Good first game apart from the injury to my RB - 5 weeks out with a pulled hamstring.

That's what i did last year. Relegated with Bradford PA the first season, and Hednesford were the only newly promoted team who needed a manager. Fast forward thirty or so years all the other football teasm in England had disbanded because my winning everything had ruined the sport for everybody, and the activities of Hednesford Town FC accounted for 99.1% of the town's GDP. (99.92% if you include the car dealers and 'dancers') It was fun finding out what happened to all the promising players I signed for Park Avenue. (They were always rubbish. Every single one of them. If you go to Bradford you'll occasionally see some old saddo wandering around telling people that he once played for Vikeologist. When you ask if they played for Hednesford Town, they'll just slink away).

Come to think of it, that's a bit close to the way I walk around these parts telling young Chinese girls that I once completed Dafuge's Challenge.
