It takes a Community to raise a team (FM19)

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to my new idea for a thread. Using the Create-a-Club feature I will replace Billericay Town with team devised of players suggested by the community. After that all main decisions will be decided by you guys from formations to transfers to scouting methods to staff signing. That said for this save to work I'm going to need significant contribution from you guys. So to begin with I need a team suggested, the team will have 3 keepers, 7 defenders, 8 midfielders and 5 attackers and will use only players suggested on this forum. When suggesting your players please keep in mind I must fit all 23 inside Billericay Towns budget so they must all be non-league level and also their must be an even spread of positions. Thanks in advance and I look forward to seeing your suggestions, If I have enough suggestions, I will attempt to make the team in about 24 hours.

Wow interesting concept! look forward to following on, though I know nothing about non league players (i'm not that brave). Though real teams play in pink, so my 1st useless contribution is that your home strip has to be pink!

So to start of with I will suggest 5 players to get things rolling

Ross Hannah (ST, Gainsborugh Trinity)

Jordan Sinnott (CM, Alfreton Town)

Josh Wilde (LB, Alfreton Town)

Scott Pengelly (ST, Fleetwood)

Laurence Bilboe (GK, Rotherham)

Cheers, will do with the pink home kit, if you can't think of any non league players, academy players from prem/championship clubs with not too high potential will probably fit the budget.

Oh that won’t be an issue, I can give 3 to start you off:

Brad Abbott (CM, Boston United)

Joe Ironside/Dan Maguire (ST, Kidderminster/Blyth) take your pick, both are lethal

Ashley Hemmings (LW, Fylde)

Edit: Unless you go 442, ignore the strikers. But if you do go 442, Armani Daly is a pace deamon of a free agent

Just had a look at FM and added in the players I've received so far and it seems Scott Pengelly, the striker I've suggested has become a goalkeeper in the latest update, which I found a bit weird (same club, same birthdate, same nationality). So that means at the moment we have 2/3 goalkeepers, 1/7 (only a LB so far) defenders, 4/7 midfielders and 3/5 attackers, with plenty of budget left as we're replacing Billericay, about 1.3/1.6M left. So keep up the suggestions and I will try to make it in the game ASAP and keep in mind the needed positions.

No idea on pricing... but what about Steve Dobbie at Queen Of The South.... should bang in the goals providing he isn't too expensive!

OK so it looks like we’re good for strikers and are now looking for a couple of goalkeepers, a few midfielders and about 5 defenders. Cheers for the submissions

Affiliate clubs are good for this. But if not, Tobias Hayles-Docherty, Ben Chapman and Finn O’Mara are all very good loans. Ben Close can occasionally be available for loan, but the only time I’ve seen that is with Chesterfield

edit: forgot to add this is incredibley fun. I just hope you enjoy the team

voted :)

be interesting to see if you get an affinity with the players or not (as you haven't picked them) as I know I struggle wanting to give players I like in real life more time, and those I don't less time. Whether over the course of the save this makes you a better or worse manager. Looking forward to it
