Ri916's FM 12 Youth Academy Challenge!

2,373 posts in this topic

I desperately need a goal scorer!

While my defenders (after a rocky start) are doing their bit by only conceding 27 in 21 games (all competitions), and only 3 in the last 5 games. My players between them have only scored 10 goals in those 21 games!

[quote name='Braumiller']Season 2 is in the books and talk about going from one extreme to the other.....
Full season review later tonight when the kid is in bed.

Just wanted to post to ask a question, although the_greyham seems to have inadvertently answered it for him in the post above.
My main player is my FC, but he is on 575 a week (highest at the club by 200) and is entering his last year. He will renew, but not without taking a lot more from me. Have others just given in to existing players and put themselves in financial difficulties or sold them off to let the youth push through?

Currently thinking of letting him go this summer and seeing if I can get anything for him (value is 16k currently). Even if he goes on a free, it saves me 29,640 in wages for the upcoming season.

Wanting to play this as real as possible, and with the club now 20,000 in the red I want to try and keep us afloat.[/QUOTE]

Well last night got away from me, so my season 2 update will be tonight now.
I was able to play a couple of games at the start of season 3 in between other things and have an odd feeling.
A much slower start to the season compared to the lightening starts the first two years, but it feels like it has more substance to it.

Youth is out in full force. Of the 10 youths I have tagged so far (5 from each of my two intakes) 8 started one match and the other 2 were on the bench.
Wage bill is down from around 2,800 pw to 1,782 pw.
If I managed to develop a couple of DMs or MCs here this year, there is another 600-900 pw I could clear from the books in expiring contracts

Ended up letting my main FC Malson go. Didn't receive a fee for him, but I have a clause for 35% of his next transfer. He went to League 2 football, so hoping he shines and gets a big money move :)

I want to try this challenge but I have 2 questions:
1) Did someone have problems with contracts in future years? For example, year 2014, 5 players don't want to sign new contracts and you have only 16-18 players for the new season (and with such things as injuries - this situation sucks...)
2) Is this [B][url=http://i27.fastpic.ru/big/2012/0328/3a/bcf9f6fec061c916dec882a34a52c93a.png]Game Status[/url][/B] OK? I really like to see the development of football in FM, so that's why I chose so many leagues.

[B]Season Verdict: [/B]A brilliant season that has seen us get promoted to League 2! Very pleased with the squad this season and over the moon with this seasons youth intake, with 4 players who I think will definately make the grade! Next season will be extremely difficult, but hopefully this squad i've been assembling will become better as the season goes along.

[SIZE=4][U][B]Season 2016/17 - Carshalton Athletic[/B][/U][/SIZE]


Promotion!


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at185926.png"]League Table[/URL] - Another great season resulting in back to back promotions to League 2! I started off with a counter tactic which I quickly changed due to a string of bad results and I never really looked back. I changed it to an attacking tactic which I think caught all the other teams in the league out and, as you can see, we scored.. lots. We ended up playing the I-can-score-one-more-than-you tactic, we had quite a few 4-3 finishes to games. We almost threw the title away with it going down to the last game of the season where we won and Cambridge lost meaning we were Champions!


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at185814.png"]Finances[/URL]- Not doing as well this season, mainly because of the Junior Coaching but also the upgrade in youth facilities. But we should go professionall now we are in the Football League.


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at185943.png"]Squad[/URL] - Here are the magic men..

He got top scorer in the BSP this season and has just signed a new deal which is great because if we survive next season it will be mainly because of him

[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at172112.png"]Ross Hale YP03[/URL]: Could not stop setting up goals. And I'm hoping he can continue it on a higher stage.


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at172132.png"]Jamie Humphrey YP04[/URL]: Did alright. Can't blame all the conceded goals on him as we have pretty poor defence.


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at172147.png"]Calvin Coddingtown YP05[/URL]: Didn't play many games and is not happy. I am considering cashing in on him as when he has played he hasn't played well.


[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at172203.png"]Josh Brazier YP06[/URL]: Played 2nd violin to Freeman but nonetheless he's a good player but he didn't hit the target as much as I'd have thought/liked him to.

[URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-27at202106.png"]Youth Intake:[/URL] Very poor as I said earlier so I am trying to improve the Youth Recruitment to see if that will affect the intake more.

Next Season: Hopefully with the new Professional Status we can push on and start to see some real changes in the younger players. I'd also quite like to not get relegated but we'll see about that.

TWFL, fantastic stuff to gain promotion in your first season in the BSP! It makes you wonder how you spent 4 seasons in the BSS :D Freeman is just an absolute beast! Welcome to League 2 :)

News from my end in League 2, i've created a new tactic which is based around defending with 4 across the back, 2 DM's, a RM & LM and 2 strikers. Basically i'm relying a lot on the 2 strikers to produce magic as the rest of the players are fairly defensive, with the RM and LM looking for early crosses rather than running with the ball too much. I've also got the team attempting short passing and at times it is similar to that of the Barcelona tactics on the forum :) Eventually I do want to create an attacking tactic with Barcelona style play, but at the moment we aren't good enough for that.

Here are a few results under the tactic in League 2...

L2: Chester 2 - 2 Port Vale - Came from 2 - 0 down back to 2 - 2 with a fantastic display from Beckford with a brace.

LC: Huddersfield 2 - 0 Chester - We were never going to win this one, they are a top Championship side! Kept the score respectable.

L2: Bradford 1 - 0 Chester - Gave this a real go, but Bradford are a top team in League 2.

L2: Chester 2 - 0 Cheltenham - I expected us to get something from this match and we delivered! Walsh and Beckford with the goals.

L2: Shrewsbury 3 - 4 Chester - This was an insane match and our defending was better than it appears on the scoreline! Shrewsbury are good at attacking, but it seems we are better and Pope came on at half time to score within a minute of being on the pitch and possibly one of the goals of the season! Beckford scored a brace and the other was an own goal which I felt Beckford got a touch to. Fantastic match :)

[B]Hendon 2015/16 mid-season report[/B]

Much of the same as last season really. Our record is solid if unspectacular, but at the halfway point we do have an 11 point cushion over the bottom three, and I do think the current bottom three are worse off than us, so safety should be achievable again.

Our cup runs however have been much better, and in the end of season report, you shall see what I mean. I'm building it up now... :p

Haha I was amazed myself! It was all down to going for it and trying to score as many as possible which seemed to work like a charm :D

I'm not quite sure what to do in League 2. Whether to go for it like I did in BSP or go safe and do what your doing which seems to be working well so far..

Looks like it definately worked for you :D

I did try go for it aswell in BSP and it worked to a certain extent, especially in the play-offs. Like I said though, I think League 2 is going to be so much harder and a more cautious approach is probably needed and with players like Beckford and Pope up front, I think we have a chance to do well.

My prayers have been answered!

Just got my youth intake for Northwich, and the 2 positions I needed players for most have produced!

In fact, I think this is the best ever youth intake I've ever had!

I just discovered the hard way how cautious and defensive I'm going to need to be. I just lost 5-0 to Gillingham, who are in League 2, in a Friendly Match. Panic.

EDIT: Oh big, massive panicking going on here now. Ipswich have just made a £500,000 offer for my best YP Anthony Freeman and it has been accepted because he has a release clause of 500k in his contract. Uh oh.

2nd EDIT: Panic into overdrive. [URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at222815.png"]He's gone[/URL]. I tried sucking up to him but he accepted the contract within 24hours... So much for loyalty :(

He has made the most appearances for Carshalton out of all the YPs and it'll tough to replace him.
He is the highest sold YP (all the others went for nada).

And this is the guy that'll try and replace him: [URL="http://i1157.photobucket.com/albums/p586/twfl1/ScreenShot2012-03-28at224349.png"]Chris McLean[/URL], it's going to be a long season.

Thats what we have to look forward to as we move through the leagues unfortunately :(

Being cautious just allowed me to steal a 1 - 1 draw against Bury! We had 2 shots to their 22 shots! It was a Kyle Pope YP04 winner as a super sub again :D

Ho-hum.... Here we go. My keeper has just been sent off after a bad decision by the ref. After I lay into the ref during the post match press conference, the FA remain silent, because the TV replay shows the ref got it wrong, so I appeal.

However, the appeal hasn't been heard at all (bug?), so it's a moot point if the red card is rescinded or not, as it would only be a 1 match ban anyway.

Well. What a season. A season that has been blighted by a frought ending, near misses, and a final day escape. We went into the final match against Woking (6th) in the relegation zone, with the very real prospect of winning and being relegated, or drawing and staying up. It all depended on results for Truro and St Albans. [URL="http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff177/cecil-swain/FM/2012-03-29_00008.jpg"]The match was a nail-biter to say the least![/URL] Luckily for us, [URL="http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff177/cecil-swain/FM/2012-03-29_00001.jpg"]St Albans lost to Boreham Wood[/URL], so they went down on goal difference. Phew!

The season featured our best run in the cup since I took up the challenge, managing to reach the FA Cup proper to meet MK Dons at home. They outplayed us though, with our only shot on goal being our consolation. I do feel we should have at least run them closer, considering the Met Police somehow managed to reach Round 2 and subsequently take Derby to a replay! The cup run did boost the coffers though.

One sad note however. Our top scorer last season, Elliott Godfrey, tore a hamstring in pre-season, which put him out for 3 months. Three games into his comeback, he broke his leg, and that was him out for the season, and taking into account his age, it seems his best days are over. If he takes a pay cut, I may keep him, but it seems that it will be farewell to a loyal servant of 127 games.

Matthew Reeves - Our top scorer this season. Still not the finished article, and did well to reach double figures considering the state of the team. A double hernia in mid-season set him back however, but came back to help the club fight off relegation. Undisputed starter for much of the season, and hopefully next season brings further success.

Damien Foster - Disappointing. Given plenty of time to shine due to Reeves' injury, and I definitely expected a better return than a 9% SOT ratio. Will have to step up his game for next season.

Christos Alexandrou - Again expected more, and mainly played due to inconsistent form of our first choice left back. Hopefully the game time this season will have done him good.

One more player from the Class of 2015 was given a chance to shine this season, again due to injury. [URL="http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff177/cecil-swain/FM/2012-03-29_00007.jpg"]Danny Pape[/URL] ably stepped into centre back at the sharp end of the season, and provides welcome back-up to the centre back position.

Once again, a solid crop of youngsters, and more players to fill positions with no depth too.

[URL="http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff177/cecil-swain/FM/2012-03-28_00002.jpg"]Sergio Mario[/URL] - DM. Already decent CA, and a high PA. Filled in for a few games due to an injury for Herbert, and after a shaky start, settled into the role well. Expect him to challenge for the first team next season.

* Operate on a profit [COLOR="#B22222"][B](Close, but no)[/B][/COLOR]
* Win a cup game! [COLOR="#B22222"][B](Yes!)[/B][/COLOR]

I had originally started to write that this season was a rollercoaster, but that would imply multiple ups and downs. No, this was more a climb up a mountain and then a full tumble all the way down the other side!

A [URL="http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/2373/season2leaguetable.png"]final league position of 15th[/URL], just falling short of my own 9th-14th target was in reality not a bad season for a squad that the media had predicted a 20th place finish for.
The feeling of opportunity lost though was strong due to the fantastic opening months of the season and our first mini cup run.


As you can see from the chart below, the first 15-18 games had the relegation favorites challenging for the top spot and for a run of 3 weeks the top 3 teams were tied on points.
During this time we also made our way through the first 3 qualifying rounds of the FA Cup to make an appearance in the 1st round proper, where we had a home tie against non league Colwyn Bay. Hopes were high of progressing, but a disappointing 0-0 draw against a determined 10 men meant a replay. A very disappointing 4-1 defeat crushed us and an FA Trophy elimination in our next game started a death spiral that was hard to pull out of.

The squad was still relatively thin and a horrendous injury list mounted, ruling out a change in personnel, so multiple tactical tweaks were attempted to halt the slide.
1 win between late November and the penultimate game of the season saw us slide as far as we possibly could. Thankfully due tot he great start this was not into any real relegation dogfight, but the threat began to loom.

[URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/859/season2leagueprogress.png/][IMG]http://img859.imageshack.us/img859/7689/season2leagueprogress.png[/IMG][/URL]

Finally the slide began to ease, with 5 draws on the bounce and then a resounding 4-0 win on the last but one game of the season gave everyone, including the manager a lift.
One of the new youth intake officially announced his arrival with a hat-trick in this game (Geoff Pritchett YP 2b) and set in motion the eventual departure of our incumbent FC who was listed as a Favored Personnel on our club information page.

The upside to the season was the continued emergence of the first seasons youth intake and the [URL="http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/5121/youthintake22014.png"]injection of attacking options that our new intake provided[/URL].

Below are the stats for this past season.

Jake Jordon played well, as his YP 1a tag would hope for, although he was harassed by injuries all season. For me, the most pleasing development was from Callum Moore, who I had tagged as the 5th most promising 1st season intake (with tag YP 1e) as he was a very steady and constant presence at left back.
Three of the newly tagged youth intake failed to make first team appearances in the short period of time since they arrived, but they are all looking to get a lot of action in the next season due to letting established, high wage contracts expire.

(My YP tagging shows the year they appeared [the number] and the ranking I gave them in order of how well they would do [the letter]. So YP 1a arrived in season 1 and was that years best prospect. YP 2d arrived in season 2 and was our 4th best prospect)

TWFL- The only other thing Freeman could get in for is most paid for a youth player, but I expect that others will overtake that so I'm not going to put it up yet. Save the screenshot incase though :)

Conman- A great update and a good last day in staying up. Could you put a code in for your seasonal progress please? also, what tactic are you using, just interested :)

Braumiller- Another solid midtable and it puts you in a good position to push for the playoffs.

2013-2014 Bury Town Quick Midseason Update

[URL="http://i1056.photobucket.com/albums/t368/hcix/BlueSquareBetNorthOverview_Stages-2.png"]League Table[/URL] - Challenging for a promotion spot, its been a pretty good year only having one loss up this point. We have to play a bit better to avoid having as many draws though.

[URL="http://i1056.photobucket.com/albums/t368/hcix/BuryTownMatches_Matches-1.png"]Cups[/URL] - We had a decent run in the FA cup against some easy teams before getting unceremoniously wrecked by the League 1 side Rotherham. It was the third straight year for Bury Town to get knocked in the Round 1 Proper, second year with me in charge. We'll soon face BSP side Stockport in FA trophy 2nd round, and hopefully we can make it a good game

[URL="http://i1056.photobucket.com/albums/t368/hcix/BuryTownTeam_Players.png"]Squad Status[/URL] - For our squad, its been more of a collective effort as our leading goal scorer is our right winger, whose finally figured out how to use his speed to grab 13 goals. Unfortunately, Sam Reed, our main man from last year, had a huge drop in attributes from his broken leg and hes gone from a 5 star to a 2 star player in 6 months. Bailey Donaldson YP01 didn't drop as much as he only dropped from 4 1/2 to 3 1/2 silver stars, but hes been passed up as the most promising youth as three different youngsters from the same year have risen from 1 silver star to 3.5-4 silver stars after solid performances filling in for the backline

[B]Drew the Cookie Eater[/B] - Decent intake. Tony Ennis looks very good already and I find they are the type of players needed to keep things tight at this level.

[B]slich[/B] - Great first half of the season. Thin line sometimes between draws turning to wins or losses and it can be suprising how the draws can be key to how a season ends up.

[B]Donaldoholic[/B] - Good luck with Margate. Should be a decent test as one of the harder teams so far. Nice to see different teams.

Also, using a basic 4-4-2 playing the ball pretty direct. Tactics in the lower leagues have never been my thing on FM though, hence the struggles in S2 with both Hendon and Carshalton!

[CENTER][B][U]Northwich Victoria - 2015/16


[/U][/B][/CENTER]
Basically, a disaster ....

The season started badly, with only 1 point from our first 8 games, that being a 0-0 draw at home to Workington. Things did improve a bit however, as we managed to get 10 points from the next 4 games, before resuming our losing streak once again. Only 6 points from our next 11 games left us deep in trouble in the relegation zone, with only 17 points from the first 23 games, and only 14 goals to our name (and 1 of those was an own goal)!

With that in mind, I ditched my favoured 4-1-2-1-2 tactic, and went with a 4-3-3 instead, as we were losing out in midfield, my idea being to have an extra man there to solidify the center of the pitch. It worked to a certain extent, as we saved ourselves from relegation with 4 games to go. in the last 19 games, we managed to pick up 24 points, but still only scored another 18 goals. It's not as if the team was afraid to have a go at goal either, as most games, attempts at goal reached double figures. Unfortunately, attempts on target was a lot less ....

In the end, [URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/Football-Manager/21935561_3p8Sz9#!i=1770169989&k=HTxD9PX&lb=1&s=XL"]we finished 18th[/URL], with a grand total of 41 points, although if the team had kicked on a bit in the last 4 games after we achieved safety, we could have finished another 2 or 3 places higher.

In the FA Cup, we lost to Marine 1-0 in Q2 and also went out of the FAT in Q3 to Altringham, again a 1-0 defeat.

Youth players

Due to a retirement and 3 others leaving on frees, plus my keeper moving to Darlington, I was forced to chuck several players in at the deep end at the start of the season. While the struggled in the first half of the season, they got better, and some of them now are listed (by my coaches) as Good BSN players, so there is hope yet. (Quick summary below of how my youth players got on in the first team.) There was 3 or 4 other youth players involved, but there only got the odd game here and there.

Count me in! Just had my pre-season campaign with some poor news - 2 first team players ended up with a 7-8 weeks injury.

[B]Drew[/B] - Great season, congrats! It's tough in League 2 but there's more money about (I earnt a mill with Friendly Leagues and tourneys in the off season!) and being professional means better training for the youth so it's not all bad.

[B]Avramski[/B] - Unlucky. But you have a great Youth Intake. Les Beck looks very special, make sure you tie him down to long term contract otherwise he'll walk out on you and leave you stranded like a no good son of a... Sorry I'm still bitter about Freeman. Anyway, yeah, great intake! Maybe you can push on for promotion next season?

[B]Shevchenko [/B]- Good start there. It'll be tough but you'll enjoy it. :)

First thing I did was tie Beck down onto a long contract. He's going nowhere! Quick side note, but Beck has the best finishing attribute out of all my strikers at the club, and I wonder why the team has been goal shy :o

Drew- Congrats on the rather unexpected promotion! The step to L2 isnt as big as from the bs regionals to the BSP so I think you will stay up. :)

Avramski- An unlucky season but as great intake. I think it balances out and I wouldnt be surprised if you were back in the hunt for a playoff place.

Shevchenko- Welcome and good luck with FC United.

Donald- Glad you picked another challenging team and I think you can do it with Margate.

Holy crap, I almost just spat water all over my work PC when my youth intake came in.....

This little gem (little is key word there) is a Weymouth lad born and bred, and check out his potential!!!!!
As with all youths at this level I imagine, he does have a couple of issue. Only 5' 3" tall and a jumping of 1, weighing only 113lbs (8st 1lb), so there is nothing to him. But damn!!! 15, will turn 16 within the month. Shows how poor my MC's are as he is immediately twice as good as my current crop.
Two PPMs, 1 I like (Tries Long Range Passes), 1 I do not (Dwells On Ball).

The rest of the intake was below average, but care I do not :)

3 games left and I'm 9 points off survival. If I can escape this it would be my greatest ever achievement!

Mini-update

After a major disaster in pre-season I've struggled grimly for much of the season and was seriously considering packing it all in when I got an awesome YP intake that's restored my faith in the game :) Noone quite as good as Braumiller's however...

Oh man, that is unfair :(
The immediate issue with our YA teams getting promoted is instant relegation and only the most ambitious / trigger happy chairmen should fail to see that.

Just think ahead to the joy of beating them home and away next season back in the BSN with your new team. Instant rivalry :thup:

ha ha. I definately think I got unlucky with the chairman. It cost him a lot to get rid of me though as I still had 2-3 years left on my contract.
