[B]Season 2017/2018[/B]

This is officially my longest ever Football Manager save! This goes to show how much i'm enjoying it and hopefully I can continue to play this save for a long time!

[URL="http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/595841084676069839/6A72752D65615798FD8139FD23216338D4B9A0DC/"]Npower League 1[/URL] | [URL="http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/595841084676068676/662E38D34CE7E6D46E21BDA8E114BFFBB271A703/"]Fixtures[/URL]

[B]Npower League 1[/B]

Although I have to admit that i believed we would do well, I didn't think we would do this well! Only 4 points behind 1st place and if we carry on at this rate, we are almost guaranteed a top half finish at least. We've had some massive victories so far this season, but also some very annoying and avoidable losses, including our opening match against Coventry, which we lost to a 92nd minute goal. Coventry had 2 shots on target, whilst we had 8 and we lost 2 - 1, but then we could look towards the following match against MK Dons, which we won 5 - 1! It should have been 6, but Walsh missed a penalty.

[B]Managers Thoughts: [/B]I think we will gain a play-off spot come the end of the season, as I don't think we have the best consistency and I believe one team will run away with the league. Automatic Promotion is an outside chance.

[B]League Cup[/B]

1st Round: Leeds United 4 - 2 Chester

[B]Managers Thoughts: [/B]Yet again, we get a very difficult draw and lose! Hopefully next season will bring something different, something easier.

[B]Johnstone's Paint Trophy North[/B]

1st Round: Rochdale 1 - 4 Chester
2nd Round: Port Vale 1 - 2 Chester
Quarter Final: Chester 3 - 1 Mansfield
Semi Final: Burton 0 - 3 Chester

[B]Managers Thoughts: [/B]For the first time ever, we look like we could go all the way in a cup competition! Considering what we managed in the FA Cup last season, this looks like a walk in the park! The South looks much more difficult, whilst the 4 teams we have faced were all from League 2. We will meet a League 1 opposition most likely in the actual Final, but in the North Final we face League 2 opposition again.

[B]FA Cup[/B]

1st Round: Chester 2 - 0 Coventry
2nd Round: Chester 3 - 1 Brentford

[B]Managers Thoughts: [/B]Easy enough draws in my eyes, although we had to fight to beat Coventry. With the 3rd round draw, we face Blue Square Bet South team Eastleigh which almost guarantees us to reach the 4th round! Hopefully we can move further than that or at least face a big team.

[B]The Star Player[/B]

Other players haven't performed as well as last season, but Walsh is helping to hold things together.

[B]An Unfortunate Incident[/B]

[URL="http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/595841084676063110/AD062E2E4C6510E5BA74E847DC1F814A15FE0FE0/"]Gary Beckford[/URL] - Has done a good job this season, almost as good as last season, but unfortunately his season has ended early with a broken leg! It's definately a huge blow, but thankfully Kyle Pope has been making huge strides this season and will take his place.

Congratulations Toon! You've done a fantastic job, but the Premier League is a much bigger league and you will do well to survive! Going off what you've done so far though, I think you can pull that off :)

Well Done ToonBalmy great achievement. Good luck in the EPL it'll be tough!

Just an update on my game. I'm halfway through my first season in the Championship and it's alright but I just can't seem to get into it. So I'm going to take a break for a bit and come back to it in a couple of weeks or so and see if I have my excitement back. I'll keep checking in though.

I'm going to give this challenge 1 more go.... Despite what I said in my previous post, I took over Darlington, but I lasted 17 days before the new chairman sacked me in order to employ his own manager .... That's right, New manager comes in, someone puts a bid in for the club, 2 weeks later, he takes over and then sacks the current manager (me). That surely must go down as 1 of the shortest mangerial runs ever ....

Anyway, I've taken over newly promoted Kingstonian, as they have a reasonable stadium, and for their level, reasonable facilities

Bad news guys, after installing a new USB update, my mouse and keyboard stopped working, and after trying everything, I had to reinstall Windows 7.

Which has caused everything to be deleted, including FM12 and my game, so I will have to start all over again :(

After disappointing seasons in the previous two years, everything seemed to come together this year, and for the majority of the season we were sitting pretty in 2nd place, although could never quite catch first placed Stockport, and had to settle for 2nd place and the playoffs... again.

After breezing past Darlington 4-1 and 2-2 in the semi-finals, we were up against 3rd placed Macclesfield in the final. After losing in the playoff final 3 years ago, I was very wary this time around, and Macclesfield probably played the better football on the day, managing 13 shots to 5, but they could only manage 1 on target compared to our 4, and somehow, I walked away with a 3-0 win and promotion to the Football League!

[/URL]No surprises here, the 24 year old Eritrean central defender has now taken out this award 3 times in the past 4 years, and is still by far the best member of the squad. Whilst he still has a lot of low attributes, all of his key defensive attributes are now in double digits, which is more than any other defender in the side can say. Managing 5 goals and 5 assists from 47 appearances at 7.29, he was once again the only member of the squad to average over 7.

[U]Most Promising U18 Player[/U] - 18 year old central defender Gonsalves didn't manage a league start this season, but did make 14 substitute league appearances and 3 cup appearances at 6.73 - whilst not amazing reading, I expect to see more from him in the future.

[B]Finances / Facilities

[/B]After pretty much breaking even each month, I managed to make a $250k profit in May due to the playoff final, which saw my total bank balance shoot up past $400k for the first time ever - still not enough to improve any of my facilities, but with the riches of League 2 next season, hopefully that will change.

Pitch Conditions: Very Poor
Training Facilities: Adequate
Youth Facilities: Basic
Youth Recruitment: Basic

So there you have it, after two very mediocre seasons in the BSP, I have somehow managed to pull it all together this season for promotion! Seems like playing my youth players the last few seasons is starting to pay off, although I think it will be an uphill struggle next season in League 2.

Wages have been around £1500/week all season, so financially, I'm still well set. I'm holding of getting my youth recruitment and junior coach until the beginning of March (not long now), simply because I have no youth players currently, so it's wasted money if I have it done before then.

Is Westley a youth player from the academy then? I assume you've scrapped it now with everyone coming from your academy?

Congratulations on survival Toon, I think the only way is up now that you've reached the Premiership! The good thing is that your finances will continue to grow at an alarming rate, just because your contracts are so low and the income is massive. Hopefully you can increase your facilities and stadium and become one of the biggest teams now :)

Well done Toony, hope i'm in the same position as you some day (i doubt it like). And LiverpoolG well done on a good result, I got off to a good start like that myself and then the injuries hit and your forced to play a striker as a left back and your only subs are your two reserve goalkeepers :( . Oh well roll on march when I get my first round of youth graduates. whoop whoop!

[/CENTER]

A solid and unspectaular season resulted in us [URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/FM-Kingstonian/22379860_v5q6xj#!i=1790448207&k=r83Z7Lg&lb=1&s=XL"][B]finishing 16th in the league[/B][/URL], despite for most of the season only having 13 or 14 players available.

Out of both cups at the first hurdle, but as I had such a small squad, I'm not to bothered about that as it meant less games, so I could keep the players rested a little bit more.

At the beginning of March, I got my junior coaching upgraded to adequate. While I wasn't expecting to have many players coming through worth looking at, I was [URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/FM-Kingstonian/22379860_v5q6xj#!i=1790448917&k=5DdKmWb&lb=1&s=XL"][B]pleasently surprised [/B][/URL]by the players I did get, as it meant I now had cover for a few positions. [URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/FM-Kingstonian/22379860_v5q6xj#!i=1790449047&k=Gk56BzP&lb=1&s=XL"][B]Nathan Skinner[/B][/URL] (r[URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/FM-Kingstonian/22379860_v5q6xj#!i=1790448800&k=nX9dxp7&lb=1&s=XL"][B]eport card)[/B][/URL] got the YP tag, as he's tipped to be a good BSP player in the future, just shading the other 2 players who are rated at 5 star PA, as they are tipped to be leading BSS players.

1 final thing, [URL="http://www.david-perks.co.uk/Computers/FM-Kingstonian/22379860_v5q6xj#!i=1790448551&k=LcdR2vd&lb=1&s=XL"][B]proof I'm not cheating[/B][/URL].

Oh, I've still got £330k in the bank, so with another money spinning pre-season, I'll hopefully get a few upgrades next season.

Doing well for a side that you would bet to get relegated. Hovering at about 10th or 11th right now, I'll try to push for a promotion spot! Early successes with a relatively bad squad. Injury problems as well, with my best defender being out, soooooo many defensive problems going on! I think we would be top 6 for sure if my defense learned to successfully back pass or not give away penalties.

[B]League / Domestic Cups[/B]

I knew League 2 was going to be tough, but after a couple of wins early in the season, the team managed to go an incredible 22 games without winning, and relegation was never really in doubt, with the side finishing in 24th place, only 3 points away from 23rd place, but a massive 20 points from safety.

[U]Fan's Player of the Year[/U] - [URL="http://s1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee436/mdmota/?action=view¤t=2017SimonWhaley.jpg"]Simon Whaley
[/URL]Due to regular fan favorite Nicholas being injured for large parts of the season, this award went to 31 year old winger Whaley, who probably isn't the best player in the squad, but still managed 7 goals, 9 assists and 3 MoM from 50 appearances at 6.56 - not great reading, but sadly he was the top scorer for the side

[U]Most Promising U18 Player[/U] - [URL="http://s1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee436/mdmota/?action=view¤t=2017JordanWilliams.jpg"]Jordan Williams
[/URL]This 18 year old striker was picked out by my assistant manager last season as the pick of the bunch, and for once I think he was on to a winner - although given his potential is only for 'a decent League Two player', I'll have to see how he improves next season.

[B]Finances / Facilities[/B]

Whilst this season was a failure on the field, it was actually quite a success off the field. First, the board finally agreed to go Professional at the start of the season. Then, after a couple of big cup games against League 1 teams, and the Premier League solidarity payment of $250k, I managed to get my finances over $500k, enough for the board to approve the construction of a Youth Academy! By the end of the season the balance was back down to $290k, but by then the board had already begun construction on the academy, and it was too late to cancel it!

[/URL]
Pitch Conditions: Very Poor
Training Facilities: Adequate
Youth Facilities: Basic
Youth Recruitment: Basic

So, whilst relegation from League 2 wasn't a complete surprise, it was still disappointing, and I'm hoping to bounce back up next season, hopefully with a batch of promising youngsters out of my soon to be constructed youth academy!

Vauxhall weren't promoted. You have to holiday for a season and take over one of the newly promoted sides that have been promoted to either the BSN/BSS. To do this, click on England on the 24th of June and see the season summary. Everything is explained in the OP.
