Well done on reaching the promise land :thup: now you have a decent squad behind you should be able to kick on and start getting up the leagues

Thanks mate. Look good and am top scorers and joint top after 14 games. Relegation is not a worry and am looking at a potential play-off place if I can keep everyone fit. Here is my league table so far and here are my results. The only problem might be how we deal with a bad patch. My next match is away to league leaders Nuneaton so a tough one.

Beat Nuneaton to go top.

Targets for this season:

- Push for the playoffs- No, we had a pretty average league season

- Upgrade junior coaching+ something else- YES, junior coaching improved and youth facilities will be completed in October.

Finances- We’re 850k in the bank thanks to some tournaments and friendlies.

Facilities- We managed to improve junior coaching again to average and youth facilities will be improved at the start of next season.

League Table- Back down to 14th but this season was experimental with a tactical change and I gave up when we were not going to make play-offs

Squad – The goals were shared around this year with Paul Heaton still shading it. Player of theseason has to go to Anton Blackwood though as he claimed 5 MOM’s and grabbed 4 goals.

Tagged Prospects

Bradie Andrew YP03-A player with good potential and he is a CB. I’m getting a lot of defensive players through and the only attacking player with 5 stars PA I’ve had was a winger and I don’t use them in my formation.

Joe Ballard YP04-another ball winning CM coming through, and he has decent potential.

Transfers- I’m clean!

YP Watch

Ollie Clunan YP01- He has played every game this season and improved well.

Luke Phillips YP02-Has improved despite a lack of games and now has 5 stars PA.

Targets for next season

- Getting into the playoffs

- Improving junior coaching + something else.

Yup, we ended loosing both and getting relegated:o

Oh well I had a great time and will restart although I will definitely do it as Chester/FC United/ Carshalton as even had I stayed up it would have taken me a looooong time to get out of the BSN. Anyway I'll better get holidaying!

Better luck next time. I'd go with Chester if I started again as they have professional status which means full time training.

KINGSTONIAN SEASON EIGHT UPDATE 2019/20

Season objective: Avoid relegation (achieved)

Achievements:

BSB Premier - 1st Promoted as champions

FA Cup - 1st round

FA Trophy - 3rd round

What a season. Fully deserved to win the league and did it with games to spare. We broke all sorts of club records and Garry Beasant (YP5a) won the golden boot. He now has 57 league goals in 100 apps. I just hope that if I get relegated I don't get sacked. Saying that I think that considering our dominance this year we should be ok.

No transfers.

This years intake has two worth a mention but nothing spectacular. They are Leon Kemp (YP8a) and Nick Gordon (YP8b)

_____________________________________________

Season 9 objectives:

My expectation - avoid relegation

Board expectation - avoid relegation

Media prediction - 24th

Hopefully it isn't too much too soon. Am pretty confident though.

Got a little bit of time on my hands after cutting short my night out, so thought i'd play my Chester save :) Just won our first game in 4 after a loss and 2 draws against opponents we were expected to beat, with Christian Walsh smashing in 6 goals!

L1: Notts County 1 - 6 Chester (Walsh x6)

JPT N Final: Carlisle 0 - 2 Chester (Walsh & Smart)

L1: Watford 2 - 6 Chester (Smart x3, Wood, Own Goal x2)

So an amazing start on my come back to this amazing challenge! Next up is Everton in the FA Cup 4th Round!

@Toonbalmy87, that is amazingly unlucky in the Champions League against Porto! You would never think about not going through to the Semi's after a 5 - 1 victory...

I think this year is our year for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after knocking out League 2 opposition Carlisle who never posed much of a threat, winning 4 - 1 on aggregate (2-0 & 2-1). We have a slightly tough game coming up in the Final against Charlton but if you take a look at this, you will understand why i'm confident :)

I'm Really Confident!

TM- good to see you back mate :). A great start to your comeback as you said.

Toon- That must have been disappointing going out in the quarters and coming 3rd. but you have to remember that your performances rely on players not retiring and getting good intakes, whereas the other clubs can just dip into the transfer market.

Just had the youth facilities go through. Unfortunately I didn't realise that if the current facilities were rented, then the next upgrade would be building facilities that we own. So I now have minimal youth facilities :(. It doesnt really matter at the moment because they go straight into the first team if they have decent potential.

I've been updating the cup wins and toons completion ect. but the other ones havent been updated due to noone trying to enter things. Drew hasnt been around for ages and I'm not sure whats happened to braumiller either. He also had a son if you havent noticed!

Bloody hell I only had a couple of original players left after four years. They kept asking for silly contracts for me. I buckled on a couple of contracts because they were excellent tutors but most were released early. They were asking for £350 a week out of a £2500 budget. On yer bike.

YP stands for youth prospect, SP stands for Slight Prospect, SYP stands for special youth prospect.

Neil Ward is the best prospect by far, problem is he is VERY injury prone. Might look to sell him on for lots of money when I have a replacement!

Gus Navarro's epic career:

He somehow still succeeds at any level!

10 seasons, Championship.

Video's and 100 League Goals Entry

I was going to wait untill the end of the season to post this, but Christian Walsh has just picked up the most unlucky injury... He will miss the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final and probably the rest of the season :( He's only ever been injured 3 times previous to this for a total of 16 days overall! (I wish I could say the same about fellow striker Gary Beckford!) This guy doesn't have the potential to go much further unfortunately (according to the coaching staff), but no matter because this has been an amazing youth player.

Christian Walsh Entry For 100 Goals

Video - Must See

First off is an extremely unlucky moment for us, but despite conceding, we still went on to win the game!

[video=youtube;uMUkNPUDJRY]

Next up is Goal Of The Month and possibly Goal Of The Year from Centre Back Ryan James!

My Ass man actually said he only had 3 star potential in BSN! So that's why I never used him :p But still banging them in in the Championship! Neil Ward more so, but Navarro is still going! Navarro is just like Gomez, Physical but not technically gifted!

I'm finding the same. My players just keep improving and were challenging for a third straight promotion. Half way through the season and were right in the mix.

For the first time in a while I have a dilemma on which players I should tag from my intake. The problem is a good one, as I have had about 5 or 6 players that have equal or better potential to my current tagged players. Not really sure who to tag. Will probably pick two who fit into my formation.

Quite an interesting challenge. It's refreshing to see attempts to get to the top without people hooking the best regens from the world, left right and centre as the seasons go by, unlike another challenge. :)

The last version I played was FM10 so I have a question. In your opinions, has the regen production and quality (for the average player, not the creme de la creme) vastly improved over the last two versions to make this challenge easier/more reasonable to achieve?

Cambridge City 2012/2013

League- 16th

Table

Graph

We had a decent season in the league, none of our squad were of ‘good’ BSS quality but we managed to keep a tight defence bar 3 or 4 big defeats. This helped us keep goal difference low and morale high enough to be competitive. We had a bit of a late season slump which saw us drop down slightly but in the end we were comfortably safe.

Cups

Fa Cup 3rd Q round: 0-4 Bury Town

Fa Trophy 3rd Q round: 0-5 Hucknall

Finances are doing well thanks to preseason income, we sit on around £150k losing about 7k a month.

Our Facilities are still all very basic although I did manage to improve the junior coaching from minimal to basic.

Youth

Only got one guy of any note through this year, had a few other decent players and as always at this stage, a lot with potential but generally speaking these youths will provide backup.

Hi guys I have a problem with my manager history. It shows that I've signed 14 players since I turned professional. I have posted more details in this thread in the bugs forum.

Could you guys check this history screen and see if you are all clear. Thats only relevant if you have offered full time contracts to part time players. I'm hoping this is just a poor user interface problem.

It just happens when you sign your Youth Players to contracts. As long as your transfer screen shows you haven't signed anyone, I wouldn't worry :)
