[FM19] Devon Is a Place on Earth

Recommended Posts

A chief data analyst invited you, does the board not have a secretary? 

Unlucky on not getting the job, just have to Smash all opposition in your path until you are too awesome to ignore!

It's sad that you didn't get the Plymouth job. Must be a kick in the teeth to be turned down by your dream club.

Keep plugging away......you will eventually get the Plymouth job or surpass them!

I'm choosing to remain optimistic. I didn't get the job because I haven't achieved everything I can do at Torquay United.

I'll give it another couple of seasons, and if it still doesn't happen, maybe I'll look at changing the rules

I set up a preseason with a mix of easy and hard games, but I certainly wasn't expecting it to go this well

We made quite a few signings over the summer too

1414946367_InJul2021.thumb.PNG.2cf5e1f48058b392acbe2f156100bca0.PNG

Afolayan is a striker

Sam Squire is a defensive midfielder who we had on loan last season

1760760197_SamSquire.thumb.PNG.b412045ea26ddc78822f9610c3e39df7.PNG

Kitching is a left back

Coulson is a centre back

Clough is another centre back, and I think he's better than his star rating suggests

Tillson is a central midfielder

Mitchell is a centre back as well

Nortey is a defensive midfielder

and Grant Smith is a goalkeeper

Smith.thumb.PNG.f04119bbb29afe25a190f02adcbef470.PNG

We released a lot of players who came to the end of their contracts

1883667310_OutJul2021.thumb.PNG.a37532291e51b9f64b7fdca4aceb9a8b.PNG

and this is the squad that we'll be trying to get into the football league this season

We made a decent, but not brilliant, start to the season

694898041_Aug2021.thumb.PNG.d909ccc892ad1921f8d0534d0f820f65.PNG

and we end the first month in a playoff spot. I'll be happy if we're still there in May

September started with two defeats, but I was delighted with the response

1133100699_Sep2021.thumb.PNG.330d6a1f2339a3dadefbe51842eb490b.PNG

and we are up into the top 4

fingers crossed you stay in contention. Here's hoping!

Despite an awful October

amazingly, we're still in the playoffs, and only two points off top spot

November was woeful and has left me wondering whether I should carry on

267813888_Nov2021.thumb.PNG.109f49ce55822bfcf9add1ab82f86c8c.PNG

and we've fallen well down the table

Great idea man, and a great title too. Devon knows how they make it so creamy. ( Sorry I couldn't resist but it's the only thing I can think of, when I hear of Devon.) Keep at it. G'Luck. :D

Are you sticking to a tactic or switching things up?

In terms of formation I'm sticking with 4-1-2-2-1 and 4-3-3, but I do make changes to roles, duties and instructions. I just can't seem to get anything to work at the moment. I'm considering a switch in tactic to possibly a 4-4-2, but I've never had much success with that, so it probably won't help. Frustration is definitely building

January was equally bad, as my decision to play friendlies after each competitive game didn't lead to improved results

1609669398_Jan2022.thumb.PNG.15bd7180eaba8f63f4d79a7ef484ac9c.PNG

and this is the league table now, with us 5 points from the playoffs

Still no players from Leeds.  Not really getting much benefit from that relationship

'Yo Devon... Get The Tables' would have been a very welcome topic name come to think of it!

We began to show signs of improvement in February

577890286_Feb2022.thumb.PNG.e90cdb64c195335b0ccb7a2747777cfa.PNG

and would only have been 2 points off the playoffs if we'd beaten Halifax, who moved into them themselves by beating us

So far no, but I'll be trying again over the summer. If there's no joy this time, I'll terminate the partnership

March results weren't too bad

2105550294_Mar2022.thumb.PNG.1f3890bb510911810d22d552870a1c33.PNG

and although we've dropped to 10th, we're only two points off the playoffs

My application for the Argyle job prompted the board to offer me the chance to extend my contract, which of course I've refused, although I'll revisit it if I don't get the Argyle job

I have a question......

How do you create a thread with this title and then NOT call yourself Belinda Carlisle? :lol:

See how long you can listen to this next one for. (Ears bleading at 1:11).

Because Carlisle is in Cumberland, not Devon? ;)

So here are my final set of results as Torquay manager

1696235409_TQApr2022.thumb.PNG.b2cace81baafeba642c4cbbe46b35282.PNG

and the league table as I depart for Home Park

This is the squad I've inherited

972864970_Argylesquad2.thumb.PNG.bfe630d937e89f1c5108812dd33145bc.PNG

and the league table as it is on my arrival.  Automatic promotion has to be the target, although our recent form is a big concern

I only had two matches in charge in April

2009116076_Apr2022.thumb.PNG.e81ea6dd58ae8117ce394a55c0461835.PNG

and that last day defeat meant it was Northampton who got promoted, and we go into the playoffs
