[FM18] Stopsley Utd - The New FM Era In Milton Keynes!

Recommended Posts

Stopsley Utd's History on Football Manager

Below are the 2 major saves I have had with Stopsley Utd on Football Manager.
I did attempt some saves on other versions but none that lasted more than just
a few seasons, the saves on FM10 lasted 50 seasons and on FMC15 was 64 seasons.

Updates and some details and stats from those saves.

________________________________________________________________________________________________

The FMC15 save will continue at some stage, I have an idea for what I want to do next with that save.
for now though I need to concentrate on this save, have so many idea's for saves and keep getting side tracked.
 

Anyway I am confident in this one and after playing FMC and FMT versions mostly since
the choice of between the two was introduced I have decided to give Full Fat a really good
go again, as it is going to be a one club save I want to be able to have more control over the club.

________________________________________________________________________________________________

We will start this era in League One and we have replaced the Mk Dons.
I have signed 23 players, no players are younger than 30 and they will
all be familiar names to you, 3 players were signed from Premier League
clubs and the others have all played in the Premier League in the past.

Some of those players have also been given staff roles, you will also notice
a couple of faces below, the chairman was just random but it just suited my set up.

STOPSLEY DEAL FOR CHRIS BRUNT!

So a rule I will have in this save is....when we make an offer for a player and
the club get back with a price they want, we have to either pay it or pull out.

Season 8 - 2024/2025

We suffered a big injury to our GK...

9HotjB.jpg

Dahlberg is out on loan and can't be recalled, we also have a couple of other keepers
out on loan and they can't be recalled either, I made an error and never really looked at
bringing in a number 2, Dahlberg would obviously be 2nd choice, decided to loan him
out so he got some game time, he hasn't actually got very much on loan either.

 

So in the summer I will either offer Dahlberg a new deal and keep him around in case
this happens or invest in a new keeper to be long term number 2/challenge Alvarez.

Anyway for now we bring in youth keeper Spencer Dinsley...

ntlu2i.jpg

His debut against Huddersfield went well...

I decided to give Pontus Dahlberg a new contract, Dinsley has done ok since being
called on but not gonna be a long term number 2, Dahlberg isn't great, Alvarez is
going to be our number 1 for years so I need someone happy to be back up.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

A new contract was offered to Spencer Dinsley.

The youth keeper isn't highly rated, I want to keep him around though.
He was thrown in when Alvarez was injured and played 10 games.

Dahlberg is back from his loan move and will be our number 2, I did
have a look at bringing in another keeper to be a long term back up to
Alvarez, deals didn't suit as even the keepers around Dahlberg's standard
were going to cost far more than I was willing to pay, so no point.

What a great start to the season as Molas bags a hat-trick.

Dybala off the mark early on, it got a bit nervy but Foden settled it.

Also Foden has replaced Van Dijk as Captain, Richarlison continues as Vice-Captain.

So after that great start we then went and lost at home to Watford. :(

It has been a good start apart from that result, we were behind 3 times against West Ham.
Made a great start in our Europa League group and beat Man Utd in the cup, also Dybala
has shown his class and the £60m deal already looking like being one of my best transfers.

Stopsley Youths Win Thriller!

Gonna put more focus into youths.

zTiK41.jpg

So far I have been splashing loads of cash in this save, pay way over the odds for quite a few players.
Have also got some real bargains on the way though, Sancho (£25m) and Batarás (£12m) are just 2 examples.

Anyway from that under 23's line-up, Bourne, Johnson, Dalton and Senior are now in my first team squad.
They don't command starting roles so they are available for the youth side, though Dalton does seem to
think he should be getting some starts, haha lad, yeah ahead of Dybala, Werner and Molas, yeah right.

I need to bring more English players through to the first team, I will do that by bring them through from 
our youths but will also look to bring in young English talent from the market, I struggled with registration.
I had too many foreign players and had to axe a player from the first team, that player was Moura who I had
loan out so that he would get some football, gonna have that problem again as we have a 22 year old Brazilian
joining in January, he looks like a real star for us so couldn't pass up the chance, especially at the fee we got him for.
Also his name won me over because he has same name as a previous Stopsley legend from an earlier edition of FM.

Foden's Contract Extension!

Phil Foden Agrees New Deal.

fYTNqO.pngc58xsu.jpg

 

So far I was really worried I could lose this lad, I made him captain even though I thought this could be his last season with us.
When I clicked to offer new deal I was fully expecting to see red, he wants and fully deserves Champions League football.
 I was delighted to be able to offer a new deal, I just accepted the terms that were asked lol, this is great news and business for the club.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Paulista To Join Stopsley Utd!

£20m deal!

ZIFeVY.jpgGLR1Nu.jpg

He should be a star for us and well for that fee it was easy decision to make this deal.
Also the name is a beauty for Stopsley history, if he can live up to anything near the guy in my FM10 save.
That would be amazing.......................no pressure or anything though lol

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Jadon Sancho!

At £25m he is one of my best signings!

PSHveu.jpgUKWpAi.jpg

It is just a shame that he hasn't developed as much as I hoped, it was probably too early in FM.
Anyway he probably deserves more game time but I can't actually bring myself to let him go and
I have so far managed to talk him in to staying, I want him to stay as always useful to have on bench
as he can cover most attacking areas, probably guilty of taking too much notice of the star ratings at times,
need to just make sure I give him more time as the start against Zenit proved he can be a star for us.
Also in terms of star ratings my FMC15 proved that they don't always mean too much.

Flood and Lindo were only ever rated around 3 stars and look at the careers they had for us.

Two Players Arrive at Stadium Mk!

YeAJwd.jpgZjNrHO.jpg

These two signings bring our January transfers to three with Paulister who joined earlier in the month.
Pontus Dahlberg has left the club in a tranfer to Spartak Moscow, so Wildsmith was signed for £3m from
Arsenal to replace Dahlberg as our back-up keeper, the other signing is an exciting young player, we signed
Dan Fowler from Tottenham for £25m, a big fee for a 16 year old but I want to invest more in young players
and we have high hopes that he has a big future for the club and will eventually challenge and take over from Foden.

Panic buy, oh come on you idiots, we SOLD Dahlberg, Wildsmith is here to be back up to Alvarez, he is home grown
so that makes things better for our squad registration, also he is a GK we have looked at in the past, at one stage
as a possible number one.

Our Under 23's faced my home town.

Some first team players getting some game time, though in fairness Bourne, Johnson
and Senior are just fringe players in the first team squad, Fowler not in first team squad
just yet but only a matter of time, talking of Fowler he has just turned 17 so his pro contract starts.

Wildsmith as back-up keeper is always going to get games for the under 23's, Torres, Sancho
and Van Dijk getting some needed game time.

Spreading The Wealth!

I have set up 5 affiliate clubs.

4AhFGA.jpg

Dunstable Town, AFC Dunstable and Bergisch Gladbach have been linked for a few
seasons now, we were paying them more but I have decided to drop each to a
payment of £1m per season, decided to set up link with Brackley Town as we use their
ground for most of our under 23 games, and we will pay them a bit extra at £1.8m.

Also decided to set up link with Berwick Rangers, have some plans/ideas for them.
They are getting £1m per season, all links are set up as long term deals, so for
the three English clubs it means they can't play in same division as Stopsley Utd.
If we get a situation where one of those is just a division below us I will either
terminate the link or change the terms of the link.

Stopsley Take 1-0 Lead To Scotland!

So we have the advantage going into the 2nd leg in Scotland.
It should have been more but a clean sheet is great.

Werner Strike Seals Extra-Time Win!

A tough night in Scotland but Stopsley edge through.

m9sr90.jpg

It wasn't a great performance and for much of the game it looked like
we would be made to rue the chances we wasted in the home leg.

 

As the game looked to be heading to a shoot-out Werner slotted the winner.
His initial effort rebounded to him after it was saved, he made no mistake with
the second effort and we were through to the last eight.

Stopsley Utd Slump To 10th!

A very poor run-in to the season.

A poor end to our FA Cup and Europa League campaigns and very
poor in the league, just a terrible switch in fortunes and performances.

I thought Man Utd were going to win yet another title but they slipped up.
Man City didn't though and they secured their second title of this save.

EDIT: UPDATE ON TRANSFERS

BERWICK'S TRANFERS 

will come from.......

Stopsley Utd

Berwick Youth Candidates

and

Free Transfers.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Berwick finished 2nd bottom in the Scottish League.

240o4q.jpg

Clyde lost the relegation play-off to Brora, uJaAp2.jpg

Berwick only just avoided that, so nearly threw a spanner in my idea, I did think of doing this with
Brackley Town as we are linked in terms of using their ground but not such a good idea with
both teams in same country.

 

This is the current Berwick squad, most will be released.

AHu1qI.jpg

Will probably only keep about 3 of those players.

Lol my first reply.:)

 

Anyway I have had to have a re-think about Berwick, still doing it but for some reason when I moved players to them it gave them massive wage hikes, Gary Senior was given £37k a week Part-Time contract lol
I have made them a pro club and given them a bigger bank balance, I have put players on either £350 or £250 a week contracts and given the club £10k a week wage budget, also had to re-think what players Berwick can sign.

Now signings will be from us, Berwick youth and I will let club sign players on free transfers, otherwise I will have to keep checking and will have to terminate contracts, just going to make sure the club never has a transfer budget, I think free transfers is gonna be fine anyway and fair enough really.

Updated previous post.

 

More details coming soon.

Berwick Appoint Jim Duffy!

I planned to appoint him before he resigned from Morton, He must have known about my plans lol,
I wanted to start off by appointing a Scottish manager, (I know they already had a Scottish manager)
had two or three others on a shortlist but when having a look around he just fitted the bill.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

I only kept Murrell and Fleming from the first team squad and signed
25 players from Stopsley, Duffy signed 2 but I terminated 1 of those.

Then I decided I don't want to keep doing that, so I let him keep Devlin.

Things didn't start well at all, the lads recovered superbly and only conceded
one more goal after that match, they beat Brazil and Argentina which included
winning a shoot-out, then beat defending champions Belgium in the final.

I was just looking at available jobs, Croatia is one of the national jobs available, so I looked
at their fixtures, saw their World Cup results and was surprised to see only group games.

 

YEAH, tough group.

Just seen this transfer pZvDkn.jpg

Not sure why Man Utd would sell him, it could rise to £89m but still?
