An english lower league team called Stamford. Has anyone ever had a save with them before?

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

 

An idea that looks like like im going to be doing for the imminent release of fm17 is a save with Stamford who i think play in the evo stick lower leagues in England.

Has anyone ever had a save with them in FM16 or previous? How did it go? Reccomended or not?

Cheers guys.

FM blogger StatApp did a YouTube series called The Stamford Struggle a few years ago. Worth a watch!

I played them in the FA Cup this season in my Cobblers save. Thrashed them 4-1.

Fixed that for you BuryBlade!!

It isn't. He edited players to make them better, hence their huge rise up to the top.

Where was he caught out? Trying to find it so I can see him trying to explain it away.

It was all about the #narrative. :rolleyes:

Can't remember when exactly, but I do remember it happening, it was hilarious. Other YT big hitters, Dr Benjy and WorkTheSpace had a field day with it.

Is there a video where he explains it though?

He made a half hour long standalone video about it, about 9 month ago or something. 

The internet, serious business.

Haha wow honestly didn't know that! I only ever got through the first few seasons of his series... Kind of ruins it now ?

Yeah, cheating in FM is the worst... but if real life managers could cheat and upgrade their players to be world class that'd be great! Newcastle with Gayle on par with Aguero, Sunderland with Defoe on par with my local team's second choice striker etc

I really dont see the point in cheating with using the editor and stuff if you are going to make a series/story about it,what ever you want to call it..Just makes you up to be a complete clown when you are found out really doesnt it?

I wont be using any sort of editors,only thing i will be using is the L23 db FOR FM17 or whatever its called not quite sure...

 

Also im in the hope that someone somewhere can enlighten us all with this video where he has to explain himself - i would love to see it personally...

Cheers lads ;)

Are you guys sure it was The Stamford Struggle he used the editor with? I thought all the hassle happened over his Sheffield Saga which he freely admitted to using the editor.

It was the Stamford save he got caught out on, definitely. In all his saves since that he's basically had to announce he's going to cheat!

Typical scummy behaviour from a supporter of Newcastle, I never expected anything less :rolleyes:

Was staying at Rutland Water with the other half earlier in the year and stopped off there on the way home.  Nice place, found a great bookshop.

the confession videos etc came after 'you, me and usv' iirc although it was his stamford struggle save that alerted people to his flagrant use of editors.

Stamford's a brilliant wee place, apparently has more pubs per head of population than anywhere else in England (perhaps even UK, not sure). That's what attracted me to visit there. :D

Seen a cracking live band in that pub when I was there, it's a decent boozer.

I saw it a while ago.  I think, if memory serves right, the gist of it was that he was editing his players stats in the editor, to make them overly good in order he'd win the leagues he was in.  He was making a part time striker for Stamford, ridiculously lethal in front of goal etc, made his GK superhuman.  Just ridiculous and silly things which spoil the entire thing

I was in a stream once of another YT'er and there were a fair few in there claiming he cheated too.  Saves before big matches and reloads if he loses.  That kinda thing, but then plays it off as he won it first attempt.   He is probably the only Yt'er however that I can watch and enjoy.

I wasn't familiar with this YouTube channel until it was mentioned in this thread, but I did find these out of curiosity.

If he's doing all this editing as some sort of experiment and is up front about it then fair enough, but it seems that wasn't the case so I don't get the point.  Part of the fun of reading/watching people's FM stories is the struggle.

I've a feeling he does it on almost every save he does, but is more open about it now.

I hate his accent, it's honesty the most annoying thing I've ever heard. 

Using the editor and not telling people is cheating and a fraud tbh. If he edited and then told people, each to their own. But he doesn't, he tried to lie. 


I'd much rather read/watch an honest attempt (there's a guy who hasn't won the CL in 60 years in the careers section) to this *****.

Closing it, as this has gone into another direction.
