Working My Way Up

79 posts in this topic

I currently have a save going (Clitheroe) which I have on here but that is on the main family computer as my laptop cannot handle all the leagues I have loaded so will try and do 2 stories simultaneously on here. I'm going to do the same idea but have only loaded England down to level 7, Scotland and Wales so hopefully my laptop can handle this after 20 or so seasons!

I applied for a few jobs but there are 2 teams I will not take over for personal reasons, Whyteleafe and Worthing!

After just a day of applying at all lower league clubs I finally accepted this.....

So I start in the Ryman League Division One South with Sittingbourne. I've been there a few times over the years and it isn't one of the best grounds but it serves it's purpose! My expectations are to finish in a Play-Off place if not higher but the squad needs a complete overhaul if we are to make it.

Sittingbourne gave me a chance in management and I was hoping to do well this season.

We won the League title on the last day thanks to Bognor losing, was tight but we did deserve it. Next season will be tough but with a few additions I can't see why we can't be in a Play-Off position at the end of the season.

After a surprise promotion I was hoping for consolidation in the Ryman Premier.

What a dramatic season! We were up in the Play-Offs at Christmas, then we lost 8 in a row and fell right down the table and it looked like relegation, a few new signings freshened the team and we pulled ourselves back up the table. Harrow were beaten in the Semi-Finals then we beat Tooting in the Final, we are up into the Blue Square Leagues!.

[URL="http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Awful, should have won.

[B][URL="http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]F.A Trophy[/URL][/B] - Northwich were just better than us.

Well, I decided to take the plunge and I think I have made the right choice as I think Sittingbourne won't go much higher without being in debt. I left them at the top the Blue Square South and I wish the new manager all the best. Northampton are currently bottom of the league, knocked out the Carling Cup in the 3rd Round at Blackburn and knocked out the Johnstones Paint Trophy at the first stage. The squad is average, a decent striker will really help this team and I may raid Sittingbourne in January for a couple of seasons.

Northampton are a side with quite a bit of potential. Keep yoyo'ing between league 2 and conference in my game. Managed to get them to the champions league in an old save game on FM10 with a new stadium at 60k. If you can get some cheap loan players in that should help you in the short term?!Good luck

I did what I was asked to do when I was hired, we stayed up. We went on an awful run then a good run, then awful again. The squad is ok, a bit of money put into it will really help! I have declined a new contract, I will be looking for a new club in the Summer.

[URL="http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/8512/northamptontownfixtures.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Charlton were just too good for us.

[B][URL="http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/8512/northamptontownfixtures.png"]League Cup[/URL][/B] - I wasn't at the club for this competition but they did push Blackburn.

[URL="http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/7946/northamptontownsquadpla.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - I added a few fresh faces, it really helped and the squad grew in confidence.

So I've taken the plunge and headed up to Northern England, League One strugglers Carlisle wanted my services, I've already saved a League Two team from the drop, can I do it in League One?

The squad is poor but with a few freebies I can see us being a comfortable mid table team

Well, we won the league but it was tight, I thought we had thrown it away towards the end of the season but we held on. Jake Jervis scored the goals this season and nearly left for £500,000 to Wolves but he didn't want to go.

Well, we are in serious financial problems after the Chairman withdrew his funding so with hardly any wage budget I took the hard decision to step down when we were sitting in 22nd place in League 1. Hopefully the new manager can change the fortunes around but I can see them going straight back to League 2.

Hmmm, they are currently in 22nd place in League 2, do I go back and finish off what I started there?

Transfer budget £200,000? That's a hell of a lot for League 2 side! :eek:

So I'm back in Kent! Signed a 3 year contract and I'm hoping to keep the team up this season. The squad is ok and with some decent budget available I think it's going to be quite easy to bring in some talented players.

I went back to my first club in November when I was offered the job, really struggling but I could see the potential in the squad

We stayed up and I managed to bring in a few of my ex Carlisle squad who were released on my departure.

[URL="http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Not important for me this season.

[B][URL="http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]League Cup[/URL][/B] - One I missed.

[B][URL="http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Johnstone's Paint Trophy[/URL][/B] - Another one missed.

[URL="http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - Was disappointed to go out.

[URL="http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - Is a good squad, once the fringe players have gone I can look at improving it.

[URL="http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - We are ok financially, hopefully a decent budget next season.

[URL="http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/8599/sammyfurlongoverviewpro.png"][B]Sammy Furlong[/B][/URL] - Top goalscorer, can't get him to sign a new contract though.

[URL="http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/8563/cristianmontanooverview.png"][B]Cristian Montano[/B][/URL] - Released by Carlisle, good signing.

After a season of change I was hoping that I now had a competitive squad.

I wasn't expecting promotion but we hammered Stockport 5-0 in the Final, League One here we come!

[URL="http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - We did well against Aston Villa, some extra income was good.

[B][URL="http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - Not that important when I saw who we were drawn against.

[B][URL="http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Johnstone's Paint Trophy[/URL][/B] - We were unlucky not to reach the Final, Coventry were too experienced.

[URL="http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/5744/sittingbournefixturesfiu.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - Really thought this was ours.

[URL="http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - A few signings helped us out, needs improving once again if we are to be competitive in League One.

[URL="http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - Still ok, maybe increased attendances in League One will help.

[URL="http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/638/mariocowanoverviewprofi.png"][B]Mario Cowan[/B][/URL] - Did well again, probably one of my best signings.

[URL="http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/3630/arnekristensenoverviewp.png"][B]Arne Kristensen[/B][/URL] - Strong player, will hopefully do well in League One.

[URL="http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/1095/petermiltonoverviewprof.png"][B]Peter Milton[/B][/URL] - Top goalscorer, can see him improving.
