FM19: Thready McThreadface

Hello again. I've been away for a while taking care of stuff, but now I finally have both the time and the will to start a new career thread in this wonderful place. Hopefully this will be enough to keep me occupied - and you entertained - until FM20 is out.

The Aim

No real aims, this is a simple journeyman save. I'll be looking to stay in the British leagues though until it's logical to make a move abroad, which will take a while.

The Manager

Here's my Northern Irish alter ego. He's Newry-born and a Newry City supporter because I had an enjoyable adventure with them back on FM17 I think. The game suggested the National A Licence and Sunday League experience for the third tier of Northern Irish football, which is where I'll be looking for my first job.

The Save

All playable leagues in Britain and also plenty of European ones. Should be good enough, as always.

I don't think moving to an amateur club in Scotland would be a realistic way to start this. How did they even know of me?

They sit 9th in the league with nine games to go. Could be a good starting point.

Ryan Clark's Management Career - New Club - Annagh United

Every journey begins with the first step.

Club Name: Annagh United
Nickname: -
Year Founded: 1963
Status: Semi-Professional
Stadium: Tandragee Road (1,250 capacity, 100 seated)

No honours, but the facilities are surprisingly decent, hell, the best in the country as far as I've checked. Perhaps I can build something for the long term here?

The league is pretty much a write-off already, but we still have to do our best here. After all, my contract is up at the end of the season!

Queen's Park are the most famous amateur club in the world.

I know, perhaps I should have worded that better. Still, I don't think that would have been a realistic first step.

Possibly. Sheffield FC might have a shout at that title too as the world's oldest club.

Nothing in this game can ever beat the feeling of tuning your tactic to play to your strengths (pace, pace, pace!) and then seeing it actually work out. :cool:

"Golden generation"... ugh.

He stole the ball from their centre half after their kick off and then smashed it in. Wonderful.

Unlucky against Armagh and we finish the season in 5th. Newington's dominant season and Sport & Leisure's great escape are both definitely worth looking at.

Ryan Clark's Management Career - Season Review - 2018/19 - Annagh United

Premier Intermediate League

Results (red line marks my arrival)

Competition Performance: 5th

Both the results and the way we've played show some good signs. Hopefully we can improve upon that next season... if I get a new contract, that is!

Irish Cup

Competition Performance: Fifth Round

I had no hand in this...

Irish League Cup

Competition Performance: First Round

...or this...

Intermediate Cup

Competition Performance: Second Round

...or this...

Mid-Ulster Cup

Competition Performance: First Round

...or this.

Squad

The squad is rather thin and not exactly full of quality. Luckily we can rely on the pacy players we have.

Transfers - Finances

The transfers had been done before I joined.

We're in the red, which I guess isn't surprising.

Player of the Season

1st - Niall Henderson - it would be tempting to put the top goalscorer here, but I tend to value hard-working midfielders even more for some reason.

2nd - John Uprichard - and here's the top scorer. I hope to hold onto him despite the interest from other clubs.

3rd - Rian Devlin - he only got a chance in the league when I came to the club and he didn't disappoint me.

Next Season

If we can bring in the right players, I can't see why we shouldn't challenge for promotion.

Ryan Clark's Management Career - Pre-Season - 2019/20 - Annagh United

Friendlies

1gKw3b4.png

Nothing particularly encouraging.

Transfers

4oAu33r.png

Plenty of movement here. We lost our entire back line, which is, well, not good.

Jordan Gibson - a central midfielder with plenty of pace.

Matthew Kerr - not terrible, I suppose.

Ben Murdock - err, he's quick.

Adam Calvert - a left back who actually can cross.

Aaron Milligan - another central midfielder.

Paul George - on paper he's the pick of the bunch.

Jake Corbett - at least he's young.

James Peden - he's just a rotation option.

Sucks to go out on penalties, even if it's a top tier side.

We'll call it a score draw. :)
