[FM18] Dulwich Hamlet - Against Modern Football

Into the playoffs we go! It's a 6 team playoff, but as one of the top two teams we have a bye, so it's just like a normal playoff format for us. We'll play the winner of Chelmsford vs Billericay.

We picked a great day to get two red cards and miss a late penalty :(

Oh f***...

That's not funny. Is this because he was still on a Youth contract I take it?

Did you try and fail to get him to sign a pre-contract?

Or is it because it was a semi-Pro deal?

It's been a while since I managed like this so can;t remember.

Yep, still on a youth contract. Every time we tried to offer him a new deal he refused because he was happy with his current one. The EPPP the FA have bought in meant that he was ripe for stealing, unfortunately.

Goals for next season:

  • Promotion
  • Have an FA Cup run
  • Keep blooding the youth players (and try not to have any sold off)

How's that for ambition? :D

We're projected to finish 19th, and the board just want us to stay up. I know our squad isn't that great, but I think we're good enough to at least be expected to hit midtable, even if I do personally want to go up...

Bolton and Burton are sniffing around him, but as he's signed a pre-contract we don't need to worry about losing him for peanuts.

:( 

It was always going to be tough to keep ahold of Danny boy although you have a nice replacement for him in 'Ronnie' Corbett although it seems the sharks have come knocking again! Awesome setup for the youth recruitment and coaching, looking forward to seeing a few more top youths entering the foray during this season. 

 

Will you try to sign any youth players on loan and/or perhaps a good idea would be to try to loan in or free sign a few old heads with high determination and professional personality for the sole purpose of tuitoring.

Nope! We're going full on youth only. No signings of any kind :D

Good start to FA Cup Qualifying, seeing off a team in our division (albeit the bottom placed one) 2-0. Can we get a better draw next time, though?

They're two divisions below us, but they did just knock out Weston-Super-Mare who are a division above them, so this might be a potential banana skin.

Not a great draw against last year's champions, but they've taken just 5 points from 12 league games and are yet to win a game this season. We're playing badly too (we're down in 17th right now) but we have the edge on form in this one.

Away at one of the best teams in our division is definitely a fixture I'll take, considering that this is when L1 and L2 clubs come into the competition.

They're 3rd in L2. Hopefully we can give them a game, at least.

That picture is suggesting that Walsall, (who are 3rd in League 2), are Semi-Pro?

I take it that it's got it the wrong way round?

Definitely the wrong way round, they're Professional, we're Semi-Pro. Good spot.

Son of a b*tch...

I left players in for our FA Trophy game so that they'd hopefully pick up a 5th yellow, get suspended for the Bognor Regis league game and be back for our FA Cup game. Instead Bognor Regis have gone to a replay, which means our league game gets moved back, and...

We're without these two for Walsall. Frustrating.

Here's how the teams line up. We're on TV with three of the starting 11 having come through our youth academy in the last two years - 16 year old James Smith at LB, 17 year old Drey Douglas at CM, and 16 year old Leigh Corbett upfront. We're not your usual lower league team... :D

I was hoping for a bigger team, but away at Championship side Derby should do wonders for our bank balance! Let's get the Rabble and fill up Pride Park :D

Great progress though! Has the league form still taken a hit from the FA Cup exploits?

Good question. We'd been unbeaten in the last 11 before dropping the game before Derby, and we lost the one after the Derby game, too. Bit of a dip, but we're not looking too bad:

If it wasn't for this horrendous start to the season which saw us in and around 17th place for a long time, we'd be laughing at the top of the table:

£72k TV Money plus £75k Prize Money plus a hell of a lot in gate receipts - £56k for the Walsall game plus what I'd imagine to be around £100k for the Derby game (I can't find a way to check that, but £100k sounds about right). I'd say our cup run made us a little over £300,000, which will do very nicely for our club :D

Our FA Trophy campaign comes to an end in a wild game:

Kind of disappointing, but we beat St Albans to progress in the FA Cup, so I don't mind letting them have this one ;)

So...

That's EIGHT players with an estimated PA of 5*! Our assistant only has a JPP of 8 so it's not going to be entirely accurate, but even so... wow!

 

9e02b181c6124296a00fdd95580d44a2.png

He looks like he could turn into a very tidy playmaker.

 

8e0b4c27a88ae42ed34ba0d2d3b0f781.png

Those mentals :cool:

 

85ec5cd6d00760d42e03dc804cc391f3.png

He looks like an excellent RB. He'll be in the first team before too long, I hope.

EDIT: I've tried every single possible tutor in the first team to get rid of that casual personality, and either they've rejected him or he's rejected them. Not ideal :mad:

 

3dc53ae1a78a98301ac968cd51a3f51d.png

He's got the talent to have a career here, but I'm not sure he's got the right mindset. Those mentals need a lot of work.

 

5bd3a721229a84d69e3afc6430df4f20.png

Our first keeper prospect :D

Looks decent.

 

e418e7dc55f641ef44899eb08f94d107.png

Woeful techncials, but he'll develop. I like his attitude.

 

7a647442d0cc6d837b1fe342a04981df.png

Leigh Corbett stupidly got himself sent off for a two footed challenge after scoring a brace to get us back at 2-2, and even though we're through he'll play no further part in this season. A hard job made even harder without the club's best player.

The league's top scorers with three players having scored 20+ this year (20,25,32). We've played them four times already this season - won two, lost two. Here's the crucial decider.
