dafuge's FM12 challenge

[quote name='Shrewsbury_howie']I tried to organise something like that but my board would only allow very local Matchs, which paid only 1-2k per match.[/QUOTE]

How early on in pre-season? I find the big teams don't organise any friendlies til late July/early August. If you can get a tournament in around the first week of July you should be able to get some Premiership or Championship teams interested (not the biggie teams, ones like Middlesborough size - apologies to any Boro fans!).

Blue Square Premier time. This year wasn't easy at all. The board wanted me to avoid relegation, so as usual, I went just that little bit higher with my personal expectation.

[SIZE="3"][B]The Season[/B][/SIZE]
This year really didn't go well. It started off absolutely horribly. Loss after loss after loss, and it wasn't long till we hit rock bottom. There was a brief rise to 17th, which quickly dropped to 20th. I stayed around this point for a long time, only surviving due to other teams losing. However, in the last 15 games of the season, a beautifully timed tactical change (with the help of Glennuk) saved my season. We finished mid-table, just where I wanted. We had a very large squad this season, with lots of ins and outs, as usual.

Matthew Paterson was the Fan's Player of the Year this year, as well as top scorer. It was a testament to how bad our season started that he only scored 13 goals in 34 games, however the goals were shared between the squad. He did well, but I did personally think that others were better.

This guy deserved to be the player of the year. He didn't play as much, for various reasons, but I believe that when he did... he was fantastic. In a season that was ultimately disappointing, he was a standout.

Yeah - they say it hasnt got a bug and that "As i have chosen one of the lowest rep teams in the BSN, I shouldnt be suprised".

Well hold on - I believe we're playing Dafuge's challenge here! Name me one available club who wouldnt be one of the lowest rep teams in the BSN or BSS? And yet they can sign decent players...

:lol: Everyone must be the lowest at the start maybe Chester/FC United may jump a place or 2 but would still be near bottom. Other Worksop saves seem fine. Imagine being Frome :D

Hi everyone.

Found this thread via twitter, and recommended as an option to try this challenge. Just want to clarify one of the rules really, around scouting. Can I only sign players that are on my scout reports or scouts find? Or, does it mean I can only sign a player that is on my "list of players" (if that makes sense), I can't remember the exact screen, but the one where you look for players/staff etc.

In other words, I can't go and use a full player search (by name) by using the player search option.

Just a bit confused by that rule really.

If you can scout them you can sign them. Players that you can't need to be taken on trial first.

Am even 'throwing' the second leg of the FA Trophy semi at Crewe (am 0-1 down) by putting out second stringers as I have three leagues games within seven days afterward.

Also, speaking of youth products - [url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Nicko85/goodyear5.jpg"]not a bad way to introduce yourself...[/url]

It started well but we failed towards the end, of course I'm happy to stay up but we should've finished in a Play-Off spot, next season is going to see major changes to our squad. I am looking for hungry youngsters and a 25 goal a season striker but I think that might be tough.

I've got an outstanding left back that came through my youth at the end of my first season. He automatically slotted in as my DL at the start of my second season. I'll post a screenie with my mid-season update --- I'm about 4 games out from the midway mark (so tonight/tomorrow morning, I'll post it).

My current chairman is Mike Ashley. He doesn't put money in and refuses to let me expand my scouting network. He refused to let me have a parent club for a long time and then went over my head to create a link with Colchester, which as a Wycombe fan I am not impressed with.

Yup, so it seems. Fair to say our success is inspite of him, rather than because of him. I'm quite surprised actually, it's a bit silly having him take over a Conference South club but then show no ambition at all.

I had Peter Ridsdale try to take me over a few seasons back, possibly would have been even worse than Ashley. Quite a few big name football-related businessmen seem to be floating about in FM12.

Unfortunately, with promotion guaranteed going into the last game we slipped up, and dropped from 1st to 3rd. Which was a shame, but promotion was still an awesome result.

[URL="http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/7216/worksoptownfixturesfixt.png"][B]FA cup :[/B] 5th round[/URL] - Got lucky with the draws but unfortunately missed out on a more lucrative tie. Still, a replay at Elland road was great for our finances.

[URL="http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/2720/worksoptransfershistory.png"][B]Transfers[/B][/URL] - Less transfers than usual, but it turned out that much of our BSP squad was good enough for League 2.

[B][URL="http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/7333/worksopboardroomfinance.png"]Finances[/URL][/B] - Bolstered by the cup run, our finances continue to look healthy.

3- [URL="http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/8346/mehdilazaaroverviewattr.png"]Mehdi Lazaar[/URL] - The Belgian striker was a late season revelation for us, and ended up with 15 goals and 19 assists.

I just downloaded your save to have a look. Try searching for players using 'Value' set as £0, that should give you more options. Otherwise the players available to you don't seem particularly bad.

My players are OK - but I need a bit more quality to really push for promotion. And I havent found a single player who would discuss terms who would in any way improve my team. Thats stupid, given that some of the players in my team are well below BSN standard.

[B]Notable Results:[/B] 2-6 vs Darlington, 5-1 vs Ebbsfleet, 6-1 vs Bromley
[B]Transfers In:[/B] 11 players came in, all on frees in order to shore up the squad for their first foray into the elite of non-league football. Christian Montano, a Colombian striker was brought in to compete with the ageing Brian Wake, and I went central midfielder mad with Liam Tomsett, Anjur Osmanovic, Aman Verma, Jake Bailey, Ryan Brobbel and Kelechi Uzoma all coming in to fight for two of my problem positions from the last few seasons. George Ray, a young centre back was also brought in and did fairly well.
[B]Best Buy:[/B] Liam Tomsett wasn't amazing, but quietly went about his business and did a good job for us in midfield
[B]Worst Buy:[/B] Bill Williams looked like a decent striker, but hardly played, didn't play well when he did, and just went around bitching all season.
[B]Transfers Out: [/B]Only four players left the club this season, with defensive stalwart Kevin McGarry amongst them.
[B]Best Sale:[/B] No transfer fees were made, and none of the players who left were problematic.

[B]Round-Up: [/B]Our first match saw us 6-0 down at half time to Darlington. We managed to score two unanswered goals in the second half to prevent what would have been a total embarrassment, but the signs were ominous. After a tricky start though we stopped the rot, and slowly began to turn things around, being as high as 10th midway through the season. Another slump followed though at the end of the season, and we finished a lot lower down the table than we ought to have done. Improvement must be made to our league form next season.

Our cup performance was rubbish, going out straight away in the FA Cup, and only winning one match in the FA Trophy on penalties to Redditch. Obviously we're in a higher division now, but I can't help but feeling both our league and our cup performances had taken a step or two back since last season.

Oh my god. Absolute heartbreak. Final game of the season, we're leading by two points. York on 80, us on 82. All we needed was a draw. York win 1-0, we NEEDED a draw. What happens, we blow it. 3-1 loss to Hayes & Yeading. Absolutely heartbreaking. We have to do it the hard way now, against Burton.

BSS position: 12th [URL="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee295/ehren14/FM12/1314BlueSquareBetSouthOverview_Stages.png"]League table[/URL]
FA Cup: 2nd round (lost 1-0 at Oldham)
FA Trophy: [URL="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee295/ehren14/FM12/1314KingstonianvFleetwoodInformation_Overview.png"]Losing finalists[/URL]

Summary: League was a season of mediocrity. The squad was just 4 or 5 players from last year's play-off final losing team (3 of those staying on non-contract for the whole year) and a load of young 'uns who performed in fits and starts. The side settled down after a few rubbish games early on, but we never had the quality to pull upwards of mid-table. [URL="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee295/ehren14/FM12/1314BlueSquareBetSouthOverview_PastPositions.png"]League progress.[/URL] Frustratingly inconsistent, we would beat teams higher up the table, but couldn't buy a win against the mid-table sides. Season was saved by cup runs, which brought in a bit of cash. We should have won the FA Trophy, but our luck finally ran out in the final.

Transfers: [URL="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee295/ehren14/FM12/1314KingstonianTransfers_History.png"]Transfers[/URL] A lot less turnover this season, no great signings, mostly youngsters with potential. I'm releasing anyone who's potential is dropping below 4 AssMan *'s, so they don't take up playing time from the better prospects.

Future prospects: [URL="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee295/ehren14/FM12/MarkOBrienOverview_Attributes.png"]Great from corners[/URL]! We're going to struggle again next year unless Chairman Hearn ups the wage budget. I'm not optimistic that will happen, even with £180K in the bank after the cup runs.

Restarting again due to my well-documented issues with not being able to sign anyone (not even my own youth graduates) without the workaround. I still dont see that as a cheat, because it seems realistic to me. However, I have a feeling that players demand more money using this route, and im totally bankrupt not to mention that the players I've signed have all been crap. Hopefully this time my game won't screw up!

[b]2012-13 Season Review:[/b]

After a tough start to the season i surprisingly found my place among the top-5 teams of the league. With a concrete defense leading the way and of course Donaldson up top. I managed to rake in some wins in the cup as well to get some money in the bank. After a comfortable 5-2 aggregate victory over York in the playoff semis, we managed to top Fleetwood in the final.

[b]Player of the season:[/b]

[url=http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb447/Muggert/Bedford2015/donaldson.png]Ryan Donaldson[/url] - AM/S C - Key player all season long. New club record with his many goals this season. Will he continue to grow at the next level?

[b]Other Key Players[/b]

[url=http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb447/Muggert/Bedford2015/karius.png]Loris Karius[/url] - GK - Once again a big part of the success. A concrete defense was the main reason we went up!

[url=http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb447/Muggert/Bedford2015/nsiala.png]Aristote Nsiala[/url] - D LC - Yet another excellent season from the defender. Incredible stable. Will still be a important part of the defense next year.

[url=http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb447/Muggert/Bedford2015/henningson.png]Stefan Henningson[/url] - D R - Signed halfway through the season and the speedster delivered from the start.

[url=http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb447/Muggert/Bedford2015/dombaxe.png]Laste Dombaxe[/url] - M/AM RC - Still seems to have what it takes at a higher level. Delivers when it matters most as shown in the playof final.

[b]2013-14 Season Preview:[/b]

Honestly I didn't think I'd be up here this season. So I'm gearing up for one long battle against relegation. However the tactic I designed seems to work well with me being the underdog :-)[/center]
