I read your thread non-stop until I reached the end :(, it's better than most novels. The rise of Bourneview!

Can you please inform me what you have chosen as your Manager starting rep? Sunday League Footballer or automatic?

I started with Sunday League Footballer as automatic has been a bit unpredictable in recent versions.

I started this game on the original patch, which was before the manager reputation was tweaked. I had already built my reputation up by the time the patch came out that altered it so I didn't notice any difference.

After moving into the new 90000 capacity Dafuge Stadium we looked to continue our winning to make sure it was filled.

We lost a couple of games but the big story was Cliftonville nearly taking 3rd place, unfortunately they lost it at the very end of the season.

[URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/FM2012/BourneviewYoungMenFixtures_Fixtures-39.png"][B]Domestic Cups[/B][/URL] - a clean sweep.

Real Shame that Glentoran didn't win that Europa League final although they done superbly well to get there,would have probably got a few extra coefficent points which could make all the difference,still it's nice to see the other NI teams have taken on the mantle somewhat and I'm looking forward to seeing how it progresses further,has been one great save so far Dafuge and definitely the best on FM 12 IMO.

Fabulous read. :thup:

You will obviously win the league every season, that is obvious. Is that most recent season the highest points total you have ever got? Reckon you can win all 38 games?

Finally, what is your average attendance in your massive stadium?

We've won 38/38 six times now, but not since back in 2045/46. It really comes down to luck though, there always seems to be the odd game or two that don't go our way.

Our average this season was 85736, 87628 last season. That won't be changing much though as the stadium cannot be expanded :(

Great improvement! It will take a while for 4th team to actually qualify for CL and get some money, but at least they will be able to play in Europa League. I can't wait for Northern Irish Champions League final. Btw, how are Glentoran and Linfield's finances now? I bet they must be rich by now. How are they doing in the transfer market?

[quote name='yugo23']Great improvement! It will take a while for 4th team to actually qualify for CL and get some money, but at least they will be able to play in Europa League. I can't wait for Northern Irish Champions League final. Btw, how are Glentoran and Linfield's finances now? I bet they must be rich by now. How are they doing in the transfer market?[/QUOTE]

They are both just listed as 'secure', although they must have a decent amount of money, especially Glentoran who just sold their star player for £22.5m. They both are still mostly sticking to UK transfers, but they both are signing a few decent players.

Something that might make things a bit more interesting in the future is the promotion of Tobermore United. After getting relegated they were taken over by a tycoon, so we could see the club make a move to challenge Linfield/Glentoran before too long.

Very intersting read.. makes me keen on trying a long game.

I'm a bit curious tho.. How is it possible for players to develop like that? I.e. your wingers and strikers are closed to maxed out on pace, acc, agility, as well as important technical attributes. In my games it seems they will have either great pace or great technique but not both. I would understand the the odd superb and well rounded player showing up, but even your fringe players would walk into a side like Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Is there perhaps a connection between this and player developments/starting attributes in inactive leauges?

It could be down to my buying tendencies, I like to buy players who have great physical attributes and the potential to improve. It could also just be down to my club being the biggest in the world by some distance.

It could also be down to my training schedules, but I doubt it.

Not sure about the inactive leagues, but my database was set up to favour the teams/players at the top end.

I guess there can be multiple factors. There's definitely a gap compared to my games, but I wouldn't call the gap large tho. Nevertheless interesting to see the quality of players 40-50 season in :)

Things were really picking up in Northern Ireland as we looked forward to having that extra team in the Champions League.

Tobermore spent £12.75m last season, which is more than Glentoran or Linfield have ever spent in a year. Hopefully they will make some progress this year.

Linfield/Glentoran sign the odd foreign player, but the vast majority of their transfers are within the UK. Really annoying as they could easily improve their squads if they tried a bit harder with their scouting/transfers.

Oh that's a pity :/ I've a new stadium coming so hopefully I can start winning the Champions League every year (won it 3/5 times recently) with extra revenue, only other team that has improved is Cork City but only in terms of money, no one doing well in Europe :(

Also great save mate, hope I can keep mine going to be similar, can't produce a good player for my life though :D

It took me decades to get my facilities up to a standard where the youths coming through were worth looking at. I've had a few decent players but they are nothing compared to what I could sign from abroad.

I've had to start buying the best youths I can and training them up so I can have homegrown players, can't improve my facilities anymore and board won't let me improve Junior Coaching or Youth Recruitment Network any further, could a new stadium possibly change that?

After a tough [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/FM2012/FIFAWorldCupUEFAQualifyingSectionOverview_Stages-1.png"]World Cup qualifying group[/URL], we found ourselves falling behind Scotland and ending up in a playoff to make the tournament.

The late goal ruined what could have been a decent result.

We started well, but just couldn't take the lead as we scrapped for a draw.

After missing out on the World Cup and the announcement of another key player announcing his retirement from international football I have decided to [URL="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/dafuge/FM2012/dafugeNews_Inbox-12.png"]call it a day[/URL] with the national team. There's no doubt I made some great progress, but there just aren't any quality players coming through that could give me the chance to build on that.

Shame about the national team, would you consider it again if the quality of the team increases?

Also, whats the rep of the other top teams in the division like? Are they still national or have they reached continental?

If I started getting decent players through my academy regularly then I'd want to go back, but I can't see that happening.

Linfield and Glentoran are both continental, the rest of the Premiership are national.
