[FMT20] Getting Fleetwood FC to the Premier League and beyond!

Recommended Posts

Last year, I was one of those players who basically played their saves and kept it to themselves, mostly. Not this year. I intend to take up the task of getting my hometown's football team, into the Premier League, and if possible? Beyond that.

image.thumb.png.3e1105569667a6798073fe3cccd2913e.png

What they have asked of me should be doable this season - hopefully. So let's look at their current team, alright? (Colour Coding: Green = GKs, Blue = Defending Players (excluding DMs), Yellow = Midfielders, Red = Attackers)

image.thumb.png.546ce14693212a902cc85a51bcad26f1.png

image.thumb.png.43d2a9d9a07c454bc4de57db95b3ac59.png

So, in the squad, we have 2 goalkeepers, with 1 reliable but very old backup goalkeeper (37 years old), who we will likely save for cup games, and 1 younger goalkeeper who will start every game (Matt Gilks and Alex Cairns). We have 2 Rotational Defenders with 1 who will see the First Team regularly and 2 Backup, with Ashley Eastham, Peter Clarke, Jimme Dunne, Harry Souttar and Nathan Sheron respectively (the latter likely playing more in the DM spot than as a defender.) We have two defenders that will have to be interchanged with each other, and hope for the best. (If not, then go for the youth.). That will likely be something we'll want to improve. Then, we've got 2 First Team Midfielders, 2 Rotational Midfielders and 1 Backup Midfielder  in Jordawn Rossiter and Paul Coutts, Jack Sowerby, Kyle Dempsey and Nathan Sheron (who again will likely spend time being a backup DM.) respectively. Additionally, we have a 3 and a half star player that will actually make playing 4-4-2 a possibility. Interesting. We've also got a wealth of Wingers and Strikers, each of the Wingers capable of playing as backup strikers if one of the two main ones go down. Then, we'll try to build upon that, and build a good system to get us to where we want to be. My intentions are a solid defensive asymmetric tactic to overload one side of the pitch to loosen up the other. Hopefully it works!

 

So, here's our tactic, an asymmetric 4-3-3, which will be tweaked as the days go on, but here it is with our first line-up.

Then, not even a few days into the season, not even a single game in, and our main goalie is injured for 6-7 weeks!

image.thumb.png.a05a2120f1bc6416964ac62c7465501e.png

So, Gilks replaces him in the line-up, and we go into our first friendly, against St. Mirren.

image.thumb.png.df695849940b74a70972718fffe72a63.png

Then, this was the result. Not bad, if I do say so myself. But I think I'll call it a day from here.

A day later, I got this from Clint Hill, the Assistant Manager.

image.thumb.png.48a089133a1033a937d7607248a2c12e.png

image.thumb.png.1390a36f20d1b959bfd8cff83878855f.png

With the Head of Youth indicating that no players were worth noting or needing attention. I did check out a few of the players, and there are some slight potential players, but I don't think any of them will be in the First Team anytime soon. Then, Ashley Hunter came up, demanding a new contract after interest from San Jose. Considering how in my opinion he isn't worth a new contract, as he rarely fits well in any place on my team, I have denied it. We'll see what San Jose and other clubs offer if they do. 

Next, however, we're up against St. Johnstone. 
image.thumb.png.0c4e7218ec06b4b21f38f3da885c6cc2.png

Aaaand we ended up losing 3-2.

image.thumb.png.303910047fc4c1e91f3d13980dccacd8.png

In all honesty, this result shows more that the Defence of our team is at fault, while we have decent enough Attacking Strength. So it's not a very bad result.

image.thumb.png.d506a781828971434f7fc716a86aff69.png

To try and curb that Defensive Issue, I've changed the left IWB to a WB S, which should convert into a 3 man defence rather than a 2 man defence with both WBs going too far forward. We'll see if it works against Ayr.

image.thumb.png.a43d3d97df1daf24fbd41fdac3ee7e8d.png

We dominated them. I think the ratings for the defending group indicates how solid their defending was. We're next up against Bath.

image.thumb.png.4ba5d1163d0a224224eeafdf2ddaf43a.png

Again, we dominated, finishing 7-1, the majority of the defence performing VERY well. It's looking good for us.

image.thumb.png.aa2208b2422c1d4eb08a496df5474b43.png

Then, for our final Friendly Game before League 1 kicks off in early August, we're up against North Leigh. 

image.thumb.png.5e059641cf93d4fdb251076ab8f3947b.png

Another dominating victory, overall looking good. Now we're choosing our team's Captain and Vice-Captain. I'm picking them based on what role they play, with leadership considered important after that. 

image.thumb.png.a19c37eafecea76d32cb5442b2702b16.png

Which is why I didn't pick Peter Clarke as Vice Captain. Since it's extremely close to the season starting, I'll end it here.

Looks like a tough draw for us. Most of the teams we're up against shouldn't be too much pressure, but Liverpool Reserves might be a difficult two matches. If we win everything else we should secure 2nd Place at least.

 

Match 1 - VS Peterborough (League)

image.thumb.png.cc59efa64f15bb4ab0c4c4160efc0b8a.png

image.png

As a result of our victory, it looks like a fine game all around for the gang. Defence did a good job by making sure only 1 of the 5 shots On Target were conceded, and the rest was history. A few days after this, Alex Cairns recovered from his injury. He'll likely be first choice now.

 

Match 2 - VS AFC WImbledon (League)

image.thumb.png.23a5970dfb66c295f6d15b2c1916f994.pngimage.thumb.png.88f1fec82e537bb0d4a4bfad727f7e22.png

Alex Cairns first match back into the side wasn't very good, but I'm going to attribute that to him being injured recently. On the other side of things, the defence as usual seemed fairly solid.

 

Match 3 - VS Rochdale (Carabao Cup) 

image.thumb.png.0e828bd2d9e7f33e6ca472178c64394f.pngimage.thumb.png.b3bd1a1a97b3594b439ac2d796b5c944.png

Despite the loss, I finally know that my system is sort of working, since the only goal was my Raumdeuter. On other news, though, this game was disappointing, but allows more rest time for League Games.

 

Match 4 - VS Doncaster (League)

image.thumb.png.5ac5c6ee483829e15204b48cfe49db6e.pngimage.thumb.png.24532018e9846fecfee4a5535c0bd6ac.png

Another solid victory, solid all the way through

 

Match 5 - VS Wycombe (League)

image.thumb.png.0adb56fc5328b1922fbe8645a10d5cdf.pngimage.thumb.png.d71fe1b1542129b85f7bc25bc49b3bc9.png

Another strong defensive showing. A good win, too. On another note, I've received Loan Offers for Harrison Holgate, from York, Maidstone and Ebbsfleet. I declined all but Ebbsfleet, as he is a Vanarama National Quality Player.

 

Match 6 - VS Accrington (League)

image.thumb.png.dd86541d34384589f3163e8ebd267120.pngimage.thumb.png.5b3ef5313c5c829a1492eb20575b7440.png

Another solid victory, and another solid display from the defence, which was shown in that the opposition wasn't allowed to get a single shot on target.

 

Match 7 - VS Lincoln (League)

image.thumb.png.e9a8072c48cc5497059345b8d5aff3ce.png

image.thumb.png.35700b362c9446a8c87f4d8fee17102e.png

Another fine match, the defensive work wasn't as good as usual, but they did well enough to score 4 goals.

In: Pontus Dahlberg (Loan, End of Season, From Watford)

Out: Nobody Nobody (Free, To Nobody FC)

 

Match 1 - VS Salford (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.a9b81be175834951ea6b123d7f8b37fe.pngimage.thumb.png.bf962c049f557bfab5e3dc0693d2e6d0.png

Another solid enough victory. Moving on, don't need to say much about it, other than Kyle Dempsey did really well this game. Not an expected source of goals, but glad he scored 'em.

 

Match 2 - VS Oxford (League)

image.thumb.png.d71264253705d462a4def606fa84dcf1.png

image.thumb.png.d5046892faca7365119915c98eadd1a7.png

Another solid victory, this time, Conor McAleny getting close to a Hat-Trick. Defensive Work is also still pretty good.

 

Match 3 - VS Southend (League)

image.thumb.png.7a856642151f435da5176bec87aa581d.png

image.thumb.png.3ac6c97287342d5f086970d08512f24a.png

Despite, the loss, I'm not worried. We had enough quality from other areas that another game, we'd have won it. Additionally, another positive is that we have scored every game thus far.

 

Match 4 - Rochdale (League)

image.thumb.png.145e72e3eb0f9904e1dc0e9038ffb746.png

image.thumb.png.81a3acba66f2fc8eb7a3be1e6e186a62.png

I stand corrected. At least we didn't concede any goals, and at least the defence was (mostly) solid.

 

Match 5 - Shrewsbury (League)

image.thumb.png.127c1b0ac1812e744d7f54e0f2b76398.png

image.thumb.png.afc471ce6dbfaf091be52af84aafb8d2.png

Our defence was very shaky this game. Luckily, we still managed to score goals. It's obvious that our tactics are beginning to get weaker, so I'm going to change up my tactics for next month. 

image.thumb.png.fcf81d83c2ba507935b7f723f6c0d8ec.png

This is the new tactic, which attempts to be stronger at the back by having the right WB not go as far forward as usual. Additionally, our RPM has been converted to a DLP in order to have both a chance creator and an almost defensively minded player to help out the defence. Then, Morris's role has been switched to the more defensively minded Defensive Winger, which also happens to be his natural position. We'll see how this works out next month.

Wow, bit of an over ambitious chairman there wanting playoffs and 3rd round of the FA cup. Couple of things I'd play with regarding tactics. Does playing extremely wide not leave you vulnerable through the middle with only having two cm's? Also, I find playing with a TM doesn't usually work well together with pass into space so maybe try experimenting with that on and off during games.

It is a bit over-ambitious, but there's nothing wrong with being ambitious - that's the point of this, it's ambitious in itself wanting to get to the Premier League. Yeah though, I'll tinker around with what you've said when I get ready to post next, which will be later. Cheers for the comment, man.

No worries dude. I'm only down the road in Preston so I'll be following this for sure.  Thing I love most about these forums is the advice and feedback from other members. Best thing to remember is just because it works for someone else doesn't mean it has to be that way for you .

October 2019

-----------------

Match 1 - VS Ipswich (League)

image.thumb.png.84d487fc02860694a3619c593323de41.png

image.thumb.png.c2f775a635b4f511195eb06c8fbc1c4a.png

image.thumb.png.9d1ed4ae3d080c7e7d3a3a469c6eea67.png

A poor game for us, but we're still in the playoff spots. On a positive note, we did score once in this game. Better than none.

Additionally, this is the first game testing out both of Bigshow1's suggestions. We'll try them out for another 2 games to see if they affect our recent turmoil, or not. 

Match 2 - VS Shrewsbury (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.ba2769530249504122954631864b1937.png

image.thumb.png.04c7efa096bea0b7bffbe865fb976fc7.png

This game was important, mainly to inspire confidence from the team again, but also to continue testing the new improvements to our tactic. Hopefully we don't go straight back to losing next game. Very close game, too.

Match 3 - VS Sunderland (League)

image.thumb.png.51b03f4cd263aa96a39e424ca13756c6.png

image.thumb.png.85e37d2b9b5901495ea29c353c4792a8.png

image.thumb.png.25f3e574f542569278fb1e7c56fd0f9d.png

This game was more even than the scoreline suggested, we just failed to hit nearly enough shots on target, i.e. they were more clinical than us. It doesn't worry me, as it wasn't a game we were favourites for.

 

A Team Meeting

image.thumb.png.d0db1b0340e91be2d9f3c19a203e2e8f.png

The assistant manager suggested I hold a Team Meeting to address the poor form.

image.thumb.png.6d4c87ebf6aecd88f8586016534ab978.png

This is the effect that it had on the players. Hopefully this translates into league results. Hopefully.

Match 4 - VS Burton (League)

image.thumb.png.0ad3817f779f11ea34eef968b07b205e.png

image.thumb.png.655cfb03f928d0c252bba2fc05284ce8.png

image.thumb.png.dc966a77934991108d8e9e4b396d69d2.png

This match was surprising. For one, it showed that the defence needed reviewing. For another, it showed that chance creation and conversion isn't the issue here, most of the time. We're scoring goals. We're just not defending too well. So, for the next match, Morris will be working as a Wide Midfielder, to see if that has any benefit on defence. He's typically been really good for us of recent, so hopefully he'll be able to help push us through.

image.thumb.png.64bad36117019a47d21392e5f9982235.png

A very close game, we were fortunate in all honesty to win it. But it might be enough to turn our fortunes around.

image.thumb.png.0f2f1e8cb3bda45e3541c79909f7c625.png

image.thumb.png.f0b762a0652395512c6bf22c77cdc191.png

image.thumb.png.32c0fbb71fa2ff674d1c6bcc40e1b8bc.png

It's looking like we're back into winning ways, so Morris is staying as a Wide Midfielder. The defensive work here was top-notch, shown by the defender ratings.

Injuries

image.thumb.png.fa62ab9a50c045cb951eb575f320b3ae.png

As a negative, Conor McAleny got himself injured for 3 months, and Sam O'Halleron, who is a youth player, out for 5-6 weeks. 

image.thumb.png.98ef551cdc13e85ce0b91e4e99373462.png

As a result, Paddy Madden is replacing Conor for those months, being an Advanced Forward instead of a Trequartista, which Madden is very awkward in as a role.

Just one of those days in my eyes. A late loss for us, really. Nothing special, moving on.

image.thumb.png.0982ccb3aebf37e2970d9a99ec16684b.png

Another close game, with our players being unlucky in general, concluding to a narrow 1-0 defeat, with it being a late one especially. You might've noticed that the mentality is now Attacking instead of Positive. This is an attempt to improve our chances by making more shots.

A victory, but I can't help like feeling like we should've done more. Josh Morris proved to be the separating mark here, but we should've scored more. Oh well.

Could've easily been a win, but VAR had to interfere. A match against rivals too. At least the defensive work was top notch.

 

Injury Reports

Ashley Hunter is out for 4-5 weeks. Oh well, hopefully we can work well without him.

Brilliant game, Brilliant defending, brilliant attacking. Paddy was brilliant this game. I know, I've said brilliant a lot here. I'll stop now.

Poor game in many areas, other than some part of our defence. We lacked much of an attacking threat for the majority of this game, except Paddy Madden.

Despite the draw, we were fairly solid, decently solid at the back. On a positive note, Ashley Hunter is now back in the First Team, ready for next match. Hopefully that'll mean some better results.

Match 2 - VS Ipswich (League)

image.thumb.png.19f4d2a958bee5707321e8ae509693b9.png

A solid at the back victory, well deserved. Looks like a upturn in form. Potentially.

 

Match 3 - VS Port Vale (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.3109594615cd1c1a5c00aeb9c7b407c1.png

Good defensive work shown today, but at the same time, we were lacking sometimes in attacking threat.

image.thumb.png.869ad1444df8eb8229770a8145e08121.png

With this game now done, I do think we're very good defensively now. Just, we've lost a lot of our goal scoring ability. Peculiar.

 

Match 5 - VS Bristol Rovers (League)

image.thumb.png.515e0ce84a7ce28b701fd46b4c4bf274.png

Even after putting McAleny back as a Trequartista, we still struggled to win, and ended up drawing. Hopefully he still can perform later down the line, though. 

 

Outgoing

image.thumb.png.31e365440bc9655b8551372dcb260934.png

James Cottam is a max 2 star potential player, so it was good to get a fee, even if it was only 7k, off him.

Match 6 - VS Coventry (League)

image.thumb.png.4262fd889738571c81552ff6585a6a4f.png

image.thumb.png.f033398cccd17f40fd2be51920016645.png

Finally, another win. Defensively sound, while also showing plenty of attacking threat.

Sadly we couldn't get him on loan. :(

image.thumb.png.86724b5184ab395be0b302ab2950fb4c.png

Very defensively sound game here. Not much else to say other than that the chance conversion was particularly poor today.

 

Youth Move-Ups (Youth to First Team)

image.thumb.png.6b1e30d669759c0340d1e9c6b9bad965.png

Ryan Rydel as a backup Midfielder Left, will get some potential game time.

image.thumb.png.d4de64566fb56206b9e48a70450fd10b.png

Harrison Holgate as a fringe Defender, again potential game time.

image.thumb.png.ed86abfee5a10f749497ea2cf2b72f9f.png

Eddie Clarke as a fringe/backup Wing Back (on Loan currently)

 

Match 3 - VS AFC Wimbledon (League)

image.thumb.png.c219f20dced768cd9d02e1891e87ae60.png

An absolute domination of a match on our part. Dominated in defence and attack. The best part? That Ryan Rydel, one of the new people from Youth moved into the First Team, scored on his first game this season. Fantastic.

image.thumb.png.954c48fc5bef59a167fe130c9c26d626.png

Oh, and we broke a record. Woo!

 

Match 4 - VS Wycombe (League)

image.thumb.png.70b3caade928220c0b5a5de2ed6aa796.png

image.thumb.png.7e84229921cdaa2585c1a4074550e2b4.png

image.thumb.png.bddd543b8df7fe7fd88e978d36f77f76.png

Can't really stay much about this game other than the midfield duo both did well. Otherwise, average all around.

 

Match 5 - Peterborough (League)

image.thumb.png.94be0d0a9c739400b14946c77a44a9d1.png

image.thumb.png.a91bcb6cf44407e7dc8047fbbba245ba.png

Good win, defensively sound. What's surprising is that 2 of the 3 goals came from a single Midfielder. Well, it works, I guess.

 

Match 6 - VS Burton (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.9568c6d6de08c8e337620bdc56c71ae4.png

image.thumb.png.aff5ee40805a582e18b8b190cfb8a49d.png

Defensively sound, again. Slightly disappointed though that only 1 of the 10 shots on target was converted into goals, but it's a victory regardless. We're through to the next round. :)

image.thumb.png.f86d9bf758a7f7129a05a5a3201f181a.png

Defensively sound, once again. I know, I just repeated myself, but whatever. I'm elated with this game, really I am. Beat the current 1st Place Team, Portsmouth, 2-0. ...Yet we're still 5th. Somehow.

We've also got 2 more games, making this a longer post than normal.

 

On another note...

Injury.

image.thumb.png.00e5c3c5ebfeb35a671e00e832ca6e32.png

 

Match 8 - VS Crewe (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.a5c2a9334f0af552852ea2c90cce58ff.png

Well, that was unexpected. But that's what penalty shootouts are all about. So good luck to Crewe. Good luck!

 

Match 9 - VS Transmere (League)

image.thumb.png.15f6b6062c8ae0a5bc56e375943d612b.png

image.thumb.png.482d8e300da2c65d9d277ebe4899e96f.png

Another defensively sound game. VAR was the likely factor of this game not being a 1-0 victory though.

Match 1 - VS Blackpool (League)

image.thumb.png.77f61208634ddf7eb0e7ff94a25a6d18.png

image.thumb.png.8d3bbbcd5b1177f3bf7b626bc60079f7.png

image.thumb.png.b2f26e4521d8c29741605011799f38b7.png

A very solid defensive victory, especially considering the only goal was by a defender. I'm convinced we'll finish this season in the league unbeaten, but we might keep drawing a lot.

 

Match 2 - VS GIllingham (League)

image.thumb.png.5734bcdcc091de8efddd1662cc9dc415.png

image.thumb.png.626a39237c252b3dc2c849fa6be4ab10.png

image.thumb.png.50db3921be2b17eadf39e989cc94a990.png

Another solid win, with very good defensive work. Jimmy Dunne scored again, too.

image.thumb.png.b65c165979c1734f3bfc64e1aa62bfa3.png

We also managed to get another record set. Woo!

 

Match 3 - VS Rotherham (League)

image.thumb.png.21b9464ec2d24a7310fab617775cd107.png

We're back in the game for scoring a ton! Really good game, also a pretty good defensive showing. Also, Ashley Hunter did pretty well this game.

image.thumb.png.9f30e2c4b3dc52ebdd755de8c31cf712.png

Another great victory, but if Bolton had been paying attention, this game would've been 2-1, so I'm not THAT impressed with it. Still, it's a victory, and that's nice.

Weird Thing

We're currently 3rd place in the league, and the board is worried we might not get promotion this season. But this is supposed to be for End of 2020/21 season, which has hardly started yet.

Match 1 - VS MK Dons

image.thumb.png.666c4e8c581edd462e6f2d97163ad0f0.png

We dominated them, despite what the possession says. Solid showing from the defence, and a good showing from the midfield/attack.

image.thumb.png.fcf7006479ab76d4ba153f3690bc4ae2.png

Well, that's great. The board isn't happy with this though. But I think that's a known bug, so I'll move on.

 

Match 2 - VS Accrington (League)

image.thumb.png.09ba9d7788e9f12c4db3469eec8725ca.png

image.thumb.png.1555318f350047abc9d568167c2cb187.png

Surprisingly even game. There were times where I thought we were going to win, but that's football.

 

Match 3 - VS Lincoln (League)

image.thumb.png.7f3428ee4330106f865bc866f714ef1e.png

image.thumb.png.639883600247bf2944deefc849e5e704.png

I have the feeling the players are falling asleep considering it's near the end of the season. 

 

Match 4 - VS Oxford (League)

image.thumb.png.97dc79573300bfc917b7128bf22d92b2.png

image.thumb.png.fd31093893c3b4f77beae09d6538b440.png

Despite not dominating via possession, we dominated the rest of the match, with 3 goals in. Solid defence.

We've actually done it. Promotion?

Well, maybe not entirely. But it's possible, right?

Good to see you going well with a good spread of goals throughout the team. Just noticed on your club's vision page they want you to play 'Winning football'. Haha, what a strange thing for a board to ask for

#ThankYouDahlberg. This game was really good, and we won especially thanks to Dahlberg's efforts. Good defensive work across the board, though.

I'm really glad we won 3-0 on the first leg, because this was less of a good game than the last. Still, we managed to draw 2-2, so I'm happy.

Sadly, Ipswich were just better than us today. 

 

Loan Leavers

Unfortunately, as we were unable to afford to keep these players on loan for another season (with them leaving a day after the Ipswich Match), all loan players apart from Lewie Coyle and Pontus Dahlberg have left.

 

Retirements

Additionally, the following players have decided to retire.

Thanks for that, by winning football I always assumed they meant to win as much as possible, really.

Match 1 - VS AFC Wimbledon (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.8cd78d9b13d8240daa241f212a4e6dfd.png

Despite the loss, I feel like we were just unlucky. Not that weak in defence, and we were just unfortunate with shots.

 

Transfers

I couldn't resist after seeing this person on a Free Transfer, so I snatched him up. Well, I tried to at least.

image.thumb.png.f4996711b78ebe1a4d2615e4a3fc2b75.png

What surprised me was the amount of people going out on a free. 

image.thumb.png.9aa2731515fb20f3010540036496d9a2.png

I mean, Tottenham, why? Why get rid of Eriksen?

image.thumb.png.f98393774e644f6e5cf4ae4f50f096a7.png

This disappoints me.

Considering the fact that this is a Premier Level Team we were up against, a 2-1 loss speaks volumes for how well the squad defended. We could've conceded a lot more if they weren't prepared to fight.

Considering this is a Vanarama National team, this victory wasn't unexpected. Still, a good game, nevertheless.

Youth Intake

I'm not excited by any of them, to be honest.

 

Match 4 - VS Cliftonville (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.9d33d76b9e553fed5c7265e14264d101.png

Dominated another friendly match, nothing huge, really though.

 

Match 5 - VS Lancaster (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.da9fa511f68381149a132ac23290a0e8.png

Another domination. I think this shows quite well that we've not lost our attacking touch.

 

Match 6 - VS Sunderland (League)

The first league match, and we won it with solid defence and good attacking threat.

Yeah, it was a shame. We should be able to do it with a bit of luck this season!

Leasing.com Draw

Match 1 - VS Lincoln (League)

image.thumb.png.8c21922914bf6cf1c6bec944010b455f.png

image.thumb.png.9b535ee758b046636943628a592f22c9.png

image.thumb.png.1e6871f5abc24096589f0ad8c439dccb.png

We were lucky to win this game, scoring 1 from 11, if VAR hadn't gotten involved, this would've been a draw. Josh Morris performed well though today.

 

Match 2 - VS Blackburn (League)

image.thumb.png.c1b945b954907fe4f38ab5ddca9dbf45.png

image.thumb.png.9fef5b21bc8b6a4653847323c8155cbd.png

image.thumb.png.8f42254e0b0fc6d141ae1e2e4306d016.png

Even game, despite the scoreline.

 

Match 3 - VS Crewe (Carabao Cup)

image.thumb.png.c14e9ea5bc44571df0a810dfe8a71812.png

image.thumb.png.5a8c458b4548afd30e159b899c884087.png

image.thumb.png.e47b3223f0440bf7b7ab56ae6f8d545a.png

Well, we're out of the Carabao Cup. Again. In the first round, once again. 

 

Match 4 - VS MK Dons (League)

image.thumb.png.e56b637c22ff40471f7d9850364062f3.png

image.thumb.png.1da10521a2e2f71233dda7ad9024f883.png

image.thumb.png.2004027f3e5204aa04bb341ecb503c67.png

Strong defensive showing here, narrowly winning thanks to it.

 

Match 5 - VS Stevenage (League)

image.thumb.png.9ee8ce2254f476935d970537f288e23c.png

image.thumb.png.8e5bd6dd22b4c48009467cd14ec163e8.png

image.thumb.png.e8de48f6586e262d3908f713e92f02c1.png

A very good game for us. Defensively speaking for the most part we were very good. But the same goes for the attacking threat here.

 

Match 6 - VS Burton (League)

image.thumb.png.eccdd9e27cc29182a1f66c7fc4ef87e9.png

image.thumb.png.620c2248c6cb3f8fd65594c68f6cff0a.png

image.thumb.png.0d910a9fddfd317d4e2488560f62e5f3.png

Curse you VAR. On other notes, generally solid efforts from the entire team, with a few exceptions.

 

Match 7 - VS Doncaster (League)

image.thumb.png.826465b5704436b8672890898ba9d76c.png

image.thumb.png.90a9a031fa189a3ae603a1fac623cdf9.png

image.thumb.png.ce89147a60817ff778638d972ad9a7d3.png

We just got dominated. Along with that, most of the team's performance was lacking.

Match 1 - VS Macclesfield (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.c93a6cb9411b11021053c5af362267f1.png

image.thumb.png.4d69ef422196fdc8a8c9b8aa9d82f091.png

image.thumb.png.e9df44c9df7312fa2c15a912bcf1376f.png

Solid defensive victory. Not much more to say.

 

Promoted From Reserves to First Team

Match 2 - VS Luton (League)

image.thumb.png.66011afe982c56ebca52f9b4ea7c8e9d.png

Fairly solid defence, with the main attacking threat coming from Davis.

 

Match 3 - VS Southend (League)

image.thumb.png.11dad7fce92cf481d4e1e2ad7526220a.png

image.thumb.png.7ca998e4dacb25e5374c60c1a7d46abe.png

image.thumb.png.2cd2cc0981d84d85f6b3a35498ea86a8.png

Stellar defensive work from the defenders, with Ashley being key to our victory here. 

 

Match 4 - VS Shrewsbury (League)

image.thumb.png.f9d41acbe9d48726e7969a337cebf1d3.png

image.thumb.png.782e4b5cbdc943d30c6fcf6b96b793ac.png

image.thumb.png.7eaa1693683df7eaed7094b08ade9ea8.png

A defensively solid game, that unfortunately didn't have all that much attacking threat involved. I'll be changing this up for the next match with some tactical changes.

 

Match 5 - VS Crawley (League)

image.thumb.png.f16c06e860990e5fc2d24294c9c5a0a1.png

image.thumb.png.fdff6fe13e53443852e2f406f8edc851.png

image.thumb.png.d156f9ba25ed090c56ca88f667399087.png

A good win for us, more attacking focus here, resulted in this victory. The change of tactics seems to have paid off with this strong win.

 

Match 6 - VS Wycombe (League)

image.thumb.png.35583080e2ede70abf1443c3b7a61192.png

image.thumb.png.6aa29804af8bf9a996ef5902fe94c510.png

image.thumb.png.32837989e404836eb5e7893d46172887.png

Strong display overall, Crellin in particular doing well - but almost every area was well done in this game.

Feels good to win against rivals. Good win.

 

Match 2 - VS Bolton (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.e7c747f69a1a3b5c72c1f840f9f9c2df.png

image.thumb.png.2952fe6bd8e5fc744dfb379b15e19e03.png

Another solid victory, defence was strong here.

 

Match 3 - VS Gillingham (League)

image.thumb.png.f0bf6966d45b397a4060324418e99a21.png

image.thumb.png.7473626ff01e09a1be2abb33cb8fe49a.png

All around good performance from everyone in the team.

image.thumb.png.f6a8b49bd38eaa3296aa41c8958de67d.png

We were level before Josh Earl was sent off! Argh! One of the only positives was that Josh Morris performed well this game.

 

Match 5 - VS Rochdale (League)

image.thumb.png.3127cdc93713108dfa6c73a719369df8.png

image.thumb.png.d100eb681034e163cd0039b105b424b2.png

image.thumb.png.5683fd9fefe8eabf25574eb69f8709e3.png

Back to great again, dominating the game despite the possession - strong defensive showing, and a lot of attacking threat on display that connected with the back of the goal. Keanis Davis also did brilliantly this game with 4 goals to himself.

 

Match 6 - VS Forest Green (League)

image.thumb.png.19609d91eb709c552dbaeb5fd9326b4e.png

image.thumb.png.3c0b08bec901f401dea06d97b1fb8528.png

image.thumb.png.80d84048bac20f3bd921838e866d1536.png

Two things majorly went wrong this game - Alex Cairns made a pretty bad error early in that lead to him conceding the ball, then Ched Evans completely missed his penalty and fired it into bloody Neptune. That's coming out of your paycheck, Ched.

image.thumb.png.4c7faefd3c8f4adde2c40d08af2e0742.png

image.thumb.png.66665a7a8fe93c70343e4ab1afbc7261.png

Very shaky defensive performance, but we were saved by the efforts of Ched Evans especially.

 

FA Cup Second Round Draw

image.thumb.png.747e717aaea356eae981e99253242fb8.png

Defensively sound, all game through - we lost the penalty shootout though.

 

Match 3 - VS Rotherham (League)

image.thumb.png.6eb0085790ea59255b9f42bb2f656679.png

image.thumb.png.33554cbbfdda6c1fba1653924d94d69b.png

Being defensively sound ensured us that we'd draw at the very least. Paddy Madden, who was later subbed on, scored the only goal of the game.

Match 4 - VS Tranmere (League)

image.thumb.png.f24cc969e9942122cbe0665b5b1ef7b9.png

Another strong defensive showing that resulted in a 3-2 Victory. Mind you, I'd have wanted a better win than this, but it's a win, so I'll take it.

Fairly strong defensive showing, other than that, not much to say.

image.thumb.png.70b87b5cb847d38a769215836579d3cd.png

No one can say now that we lack attacking threat.

 

Match 2 - VS Hull (League)

image.thumb.png.f8643f9d9ec7e2b0a47fe54f928775bd.png

image.thumb.png.27be10b6732b12d9d79e1b0112f55d20.png

Oh wait, I can. Sometimes we can chuck in goals, and some other times, we just bloody can't.

 

Match 3 - VS Peterborough (League)

image.thumb.png.53f63f698eea9e68032cd97cc77d422c.png

Can't believe we didn't capitalize on the two Frankie Kent mistakes. Still, a victory.

Were our lot just fast asleep or something?! 

 

Job Offer

image.thumb.png.f8e2967066bc2991eeb2e164e9ecf336.png

Offered a job by the team who beat us into the promotion hunt last season. I'm sticking with Fleetwood.

image.thumb.png.9ca33e646ff563dfe922c42874d96493.png

Defensively strong victory, in particular Alex Cairn - saving 14 shots in one way or another.

 

Match 6 - VS Accrington (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.3ab139f98087d2e866fde106b9307a0c.png

image.thumb.png.d0d9453331276993401ececd2ca35089.png

We were extremely strong in most areas in this game, and the 4 goals scored show this.

 

Match 7 - VS Sunderland (League)

image.thumb.png.e3bfe0570ad3138bd5e01c1b8960c46d.png

image.thumb.png.e571fee0795b94b1001e98882882d914.png

Like the last game was solid in all areas, this match was disappointing in all areas.

Another solid in all areas game, showing what we're really capable of.

Match 1 - VS Stevenage (League)

image.thumb.png.cbf3142e5e31aec17da9e9d4a10f099a.png

image.thumb.png.07b2f1c9cc92548c6bfd792f5e51554c.png

Solid game in all areas, especially defence. Ched did really well this game.

 

Match 2 - VS Lincoln (League)

image.thumb.png.40ef33f63dca2f7742c084709d9ed7be.png

image.thumb.png.4375a31928be63269bb00187e4229d01.png

image.thumb.png.6a81444f6f83f9aba57c9553a07dfb0d.png

Despite the red card for the opposition, we only managed to win 2-1. Still, a victory is a victory.

 

Match 3 - VS Blackburn (League)

image.thumb.png.705725faaf4d304a60d965acc79d830e.png

image.thumb.png.c7c20b044776464f35bf461ea29e95df.png

image.thumb.png.2d684e93aa159e8f68d8226c544a85fa.png

Despite the score, this was a poor game. We only won because of a penalty. Parts of the team were playing well, but the majority wasn't. Luckily for us, Blackburn also happened to be pretty terrible today. You could say, it was a battle of 2 terrible teams. Well, on this day at least, both teams played badly.

 

Match 4 - VS Peterborough (Leasing.com Trophy)

image.thumb.png.189bba7441157a4f1bc57f62151ee30c.png

image.thumb.png.aa50c40a1e79ba15f7d2bf109b27d6be.png

image.thumb.png.799bf73a9704de7f7daa0d9e96b140a3.png

Just one of those days, really. We played well, and so did Peterborough. Hell, a hat-trick from Ched didn't give us the win. We ended up losing in a penalty shootout.

 

An ironic job offer.

image.thumb.png.c6f6600c420285f05378ba36b06cb2fa.png

I was just offered a job. By a team we had beaten, what, 2 games ago? Don't make me laugh.

 

Match 5 - VS Burton (League)

image.thumb.png.575b3d5bba2c51fff840774f6781f5fa.png

image.thumb.png.5eb5260568cc759f241ab66c3caf56e1.png

image.thumb.png.5cfe702c2c7f407af3801edeb1a12bf4.png

We were just poor in this game. Not much more to say.

 

Match 6 - VS Doncaster (League)

image.thumb.png.d54c58dd754f32275adae3a2fb07fc31.png

image.thumb.png.cac3fdd6dcb60d0940030a7e6d6f30e4.png

image.thumb.png.48c33fbf6859d866909ca06d3f2049a0.png

Another one of those solid defensive victories. We like doing those, don't we?

 

Match 7 - VS Luton (League)

image.thumb.png.b95d4752a6ba6de2533051547433b376.png

image.thumb.png.69afaba6fe46571cc60b5c2926c5c861.png

image.thumb.png.bf6656085d12eca06d92bd26afb14476.png

A defensively sound draw, even after we had both been reduced to 10 men we still managed to draw.

image.thumb.png.31fa4c8504cd6a60ada76dbae1859a49.png

Strong win on all fronts. I'd just wish the board wouldn't keep telling me every month that I'm struggling to get promotion.

 

Match 2 - VS Shrewsbury (League)

image.thumb.png.0736d901ce033a789d33419b65ca7a20.png

image.thumb.png.da7017ad9f4fe369c0a6bb3e7eb42b7b.png

A partially sound defensive force made sure that this game didn't become a 2-1 loss.

 

Match 3 - VS Crawley (League)

image.thumb.png.8a7bb2375b72c38ef6a97dcc681fe1d3.png

image.thumb.png.e25577378eaabd5cc823bef39138b8a9.png

Good in all areas, I just wish we had more of an attacking threat, but it's a victory.

 

Match 4 - VS Wycombe (League)

image.thumb.png.74cfe57406207e4ee20c9cb742b60fb3.png

image.thumb.png.db7562ed88562420b0c3034f6aecfd31.png

Now that's more like it. More of a comfortable game, having an heavy attacking threat, while still staying defensive throughout.

 

Match 5 - VS Blackpool (League)

image.thumb.png.c87e7a0e8d19da0a89d0ee4fdc15b542.png

It's always good to end a post on a high. But this is a low, so it's always bad. This is the last match of the month, and we lost it. 3-2. ...

There is one positive from this, I guess. At least we scored.

Good all round win. Not much else to say here, other than that Paddy came on as a sub to get a brace.

Another all round win, everything done good enough, with Paul Coutts being quite the creative force in this game.

I think we were fortunate to finish that game with a draw, as we might have lost if VAR hadn't gotten involved.

Solid enough defence leading into a narrow victory. Not much else to say.

Well, that's... One way to start off a month? Despite the scoreline, the defence wasn't that bad. We just couldn't score today.

 

Match 2 - VS Rotherham (League)

At least we didn't lose again.

If it wasn't for Paddy, this would've been another 3-0 loss!

image.thumb.png.bd4ede72f792df9c509f6ccc94c4cc95.png

We might've won this 3-2 if VAR hadn't gotten involved. But at least it's not a loss.

Strong defensive showing, both goals from both teams by penalties. You don't see that every day.

 

Initial End of Season Stuff

Finally, they can stop saying I'm struggling with that despite being high up in the league.

Despite having the ball for more than 50% of the game, we lost. But it's not all bad, because we still finished 2nd.

The gist of it

I did try to get Paul Coutts on another contract, but I didn't manage to get him to agree terms. So, to replace him as a captain, I brought in Tom Clarke, who should be able to do a good job.

Other Deals

Because we're in need of a main midfielder, I decided to get this guy on a free.

image.thumb.png.983c1adb7fbd012b79b12c8754e21d08.png

Plus, he's bound to improve in the future, so it's a fairly solid investment.

image.thumb.png.1bebd0c9b75e7a91b8d98045cfc72a95.png

 

Match 1 - VS Torquay (Friendly)
image.thumb.png.284a00c052b829eccec7406f95fa0e96.png

image.thumb.png.7462ea9604e11498f667aeaace740c8f.png

How did we lose to a Vanarama team? What the hell?

 

Match 2 - VS Bolton (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.1168ba8b5537db49e4e595ffdcf9cb09.png

image.thumb.png.6f6d9baf767f43dab3e3e9a54a682407.png

That's more like it. Defensive showing was strong, but we should expect that from fighting against a League 2 team.

 

Sold Wes Burns

image.thumb.png.8aa98c896abf44ba434dcd3dd57088ae.png

After some tough negotiating, I made a profit on his value (well, eventually). He's worth 500k. 

 

Match 3 - VS Lancaster (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.1ff6953614728913a29df83f318ee1d9.png

image.thumb.png.5c3fc1f035de383b24cdd9984fd104bc.png

Wow. Despite the huge victory, I have genuinely not much to say. Other than that Ched is a beast! ...Let's not get too carried away, it's only a friendly.

 

Morris wants Out

image.thumb.png.fba5cf59924798952ba813cf108bc53b.png

Considering he's very much a key player for us, I told him to get on with his job, basically.

image.thumb.png.965e1d2cace92f5bfb3722d5532193f8.png

 

Match 4 - VS Crewe (Friendly)

image.thumb.png.bdc1020ca1b903a6271b1e1520ffed7b.png

Ched is very much still a beast. 2 of the 3 goals scored were from him.

image.thumb.png.7bfbc74e39ecd0593a4238ed2e2ecb58.png

As you can tell, Alex Cairns is the main reason why this match didn't end up a 10-1 loss for us. So all the credit mainly to him.

 

Sold Goldsborough

image.thumb.png.bc87a02e5bf1946edbbb55cc815be091.png

I sold him because of his stats - he wasn't likely to improve much in crucial areas.

image.thumb.png.831f7d1938ff8c8d5d15757c4bd9dc10.png

Despite the scoreline, we didn't do too badly. Alex Cairns again was a real help, even if we lost, he only conceded 4 out of 12. What I can say we did badly was overall shot making. Only managed to score 1 out of 9.

 

Match 2 - VS Crewe (Carabao Cup)

Confidence builder, but credit to the team for finishing in top, defensive work was strong enough here.

image.thumb.png.f21ebcc69c3ecd5b37484be2394755f8.png

We were never likely to get much out of this match, but credit to some of the players for really giving it their all.

 

Match 4 - VS Brentford (League)

image.thumb.png.d9e93872dfea86d88f62103e70eb919e.png

Another match we weren't expected to get anything out of, but at one point it looked briefly like we were going to draw. Despite going 2 down, a lot of the team put their all into it. If we keep trying like this, eventually we're going to win.

 

Match 5 - VS Lincoln (League)

image.thumb.png.80589671a58e53f5dda24dc6d89b4c89.png

image.thumb.png.91848fd9f39c16b950a7be1c0230b0ea.png

We kept fighting all the way through, and ended up drawing. All we need right now is a league win to stay out of relegation for the moment.

 

Match 6 - VS Crawley (Carabao Cup)

image.thumb.png.e8ecfadc08ef7eadef978ef800f54094.png

image.thumb.png.5d6b056030707ffb2ac6f59c3dc3f611.png

This all-round good victory should inspire a little confidence to go into the next match. Which is Huddersfield, in 1st. Great. Another loss, probably.

 

Carabao Cup Third Round Draw

image.thumb.png.9d0cf7156a8ec0a814ffe31c0ddaa9e0.png

Well, we're out of the Carabao Cup then, unless something goes right for us. Also, 4th? In the Premier Division? What?

image.thumb.png.3566dd3631c8a71c69c43cf13cea7def.png

Well.

image.thumb.png.cea1dc293b9dd77d22bd7bf5b6886a58.png

Wow, talk about proving me wrong. Just, wow. Almost everyone in the team performed well, especially Alex Cairns for making sure not one of those 10 shots on target went in goal. Well, one did, but VAR helped us out on that one.

 

New Tactic

image.thumb.png.33a9b886d5d8b89b94e52a29ad22ef39.png

To attempt to get stronger defensively and hopefully avoid relegation, we're going cautious instead of attacking.

That's more like it! Good all-around win, and because of it we're now 18th, 6 points clear of relegation spots!

Despite most of the players performing admirably, if not all of them, we ended up losing. But despite the loss, the team performed very well considering Fulham is a Premier Division team.

 

Match 4 - VS Bristol City (League)

Strong defensive showing led to a comeback victory. Paddy saved the day too, for us, scoring both goals.

image.thumb.png.c43d2e0e393b84a42a568cf0a157b861.png

I think we did well this game, despite the draw, defensively we were pretty strong. Cairns as usual did well, saving in one way or another, 9 out of the 10 shots on target.

 

Match 2 - VS Derby (League)

image.thumb.png.8ca6dcf675852b9a5d6976359c7d4462.png

image.thumb.png.0c88cd225813173de52eef2e72431f4c.png

Hardly any of the team members involved did enough to even get us close to winning, but despite the loss, I think a lot of them worked hard.

 

Match 3 - VS Reading (League)

image.thumb.png.77988511e7107d9bf93b8464c5954a77.png

Despite us fighting hard, we lost anyways. Defensively for most of the game we were sound, but Reading just had a slight edge over us.

 

Slight Changes to the Tactic

image.thumb.png.a0366839bd98b767747cf17d60cb9e1c.png

Since Nathan Sheron, our main Wing Back is in need of a rest, and Clarke is more of a natural in NFB, we will be trying out Clarke in that spot for a few matches. This should result in a stronger defensive play.

A solid victory for us, with Ched Evans performing particularly well, giving us a brace.

Both Ched and Madden played very well today, but most of the team did well, if not all - it was a very good defensive showing for the team too.

November 2021

--------------------

 

Match 1 - VS Wolves (League)

image.thumb.png.f83d9aa769d4d504cbba8e38c680415b.png

image.thumb.png.4f6b3e5ccd3c82ef10a2f018dadf941c.png

image.thumb.png.3064c83133f64e5fe66a7a9d7d0e50f8.png

Despite the scoreline, we dominated most of the proceedings with our defensive work, and Alex Cairns ensured that this wasn't more than a 3-0 loss.

 

Match 2 - VS West Brom (League)

image.thumb.png.fb24f259b90844b6c17e3f975f3c1df2.png

image.thumb.png.e5cc9656ff22738f0ef25cf821ec47a6.png

image.thumb.png.c40323159f00a52858fc1cf03d5d816c.png

Really wasn't much positive to say about this match, Ched as usual performing well enough, but that's about it. Oh, and Alex helping it not be worse than a 4-1 loss.

 

Match 3 - VS Preston (League)

image.thumb.png.5df475158e5a4728a6817389a17104ba.png

image.thumb.png.6dd0e81f8b79c8402f731ddafd15a35c.png

image.thumb.png.bb51fbfd94f806b785bb3d5f3a967087.png

Another poor performance from most of the team, apart from a few players who were better than average.

 

Team Meeting

image.thumb.png.025f840099da08d8582caedf99660c45.png

Well, hopefully this has an effect on results. Maybe a little.

 

Match 4 - VS Nottingham Forest (League)

image.thumb.png.9601f250d42cc1c60b79aa0c595262fa.png

image.thumb.png.b06c575ccf85865adb071ddc925d2c69.png

image.thumb.png.4bb2fee104b38a765d280352c96aada5.png

Strong team performance from the majority, except for a surprising poor performance from Ched Evans.

End of Month League Table

image.thumb.png.0a2194538fcb6ee5777022137ad7438b.png

Exactly where we were last month, with just 4 points separating us from relegation spots.

December 2021

-------------------

Match 1 - VS Blackburn (League)

image.thumb.png.4c7de6d8d46940984b04708bc5b87afe.png

image.thumb.png.7d208fb6ebabcbf0de55b2a1e8fee41b.png

image.thumb.png.f91eb9cb70cccad4585d40fed0479b2a.png

Alex Cairns was the most positive thing about this loss - Letting only 2 of the 20 shots on target pass.

 

Match 2 - VS Barnsley (League)

image.thumb.png.acf1f3425c7e6e66f1fc4b36471a35e1.png

image.thumb.png.bf72d1df3419189ad4c2a0680302bfd0.png

image.thumb.png.1009584668c2e3b7ff5631c0a6794766.png

In some parts, the defence was poor. Performing across the board fairly well wasn't enough though to get a draw or more.

 

Match 3 - VS Middlesbrough (League)

image.thumb.png.a1e9e5a918c247d60821e28beea46497.png

image.thumb.png.120d65e23c4ce543b9248da5253715ef.png

image.thumb.png.d9c2e0967438cac6db4b10efc35030be.png

Thanks VAR. That's all I have to say. Thanks VAR.

 

Match 4 - VS Birmingham (League)

image.thumb.png.d0102893378104276fa62a6f999aebd7.png

image.thumb.png.7dfc7e0bcd384ae39e8504e35760f203.png

image.thumb.png.29e92f3f1e77bf58dcf9e9583198ab0b.png

I don't have much to say other than majority of the team bar a few did poorly today.

 

Match 5 - VS Swansea (League)

image.thumb.png.8a36dd5868594836edb6b8817c660473.png

image.thumb.png.425978d64254bfcbd4bbc01acd27ed9a.png

image.thumb.png.2973d7e43a514a061145cedf3eeffc26.png

Another poor game, bar a few members. Including the fairly consistent Jake Doyle-Hayes, who was the best performer of the group.

 

Match 6 - VS Brentford (League)

image.thumb.png.4c91784992963142af0d47d7b93846f4.png

image.thumb.png.3a4bc22d2cac34c81587185323518ccb.png

 

image.thumb.png.346131e5c2baecc26090c476edf1e198.png

Another poor game. Not much more to say. We're approaching the transfer window opening, and some changes do need to be made. For example, Danny Andrew wants to leave to another club, so I'll be likely selling him and looking for a defensively minded left NFB.

Just caught up with this. I'm loving it so far. Congrats on the promotion. Hope you can escape relegation and build from there.

Yeah, me too - we were sitting comfortably about 18th or so a couple months back, but a few bad results and you're slowly losing the battle, but we should be able to do it with a bit of luck, I intend to make a few defensive signings this window since Tom Clarke plays in both DC and as a full back, but he's best in the full back spot as a NFB (he can play both), if we get someone defensively geared we might push on a bit better.

Match 1 - VS Mansfield (FA Cup)

image.thumb.png.b50ed5e65642049fe10f1d8669338787.png

A draw inspired by a strong defensive performance, Josh Morris being useful in scoring that equaliser goal.

image.thumb.png.6985219ca20649892942bdc6b0b96821.png

Despite more shots on target, we ultimately lost, despite also majority of the team performing admirably.

 

New Tactic

image.thumb.png.b92d9a3528c9441bcef5ceb89ae69687.png

With the signing of Kingsley, I decided best to have two NFBs instead of one. This might help us defensively.

 

Match 3 - VS Norwich (League)

image.thumb.png.5aaafd91367da4743abbaffe2bdb4339.png

Despite the scoreline, this was a very close game. Defensively we were incredibly strong, thanks to the new signing's efforts.

image.thumb.png.2ec1efb76694c4f7df9d718beecef6c2.png

Strong overall showing from the entire team, bar a few.

image.thumb.png.db01d9d7877fb1c05b83c14c6882d216.png

Strong defensive performance ensured that this was a draw only.

 

Match 6 - VS Huddersfield (League)

image.thumb.png.7a34b20b958eae559bc87ede23d657e9.png

image.thumb.png.a25b9baabf33d430221e409ede199ec5.png

image.thumb.png.98cc4c015119f8f394105015c7f185e2.png

A poor performance from most of them.

 

Morris wants to leave. Again.

image.thumb.png.6a5a62a9ce374b3aeadaecc231bf6f84.png

Despite the loss, nearly everyone performed extremely well. Considering it's Arsenal, only losing 2-0 is surprising.

 

Match 8 - VS Portsmouth (League)

Curse you VAR. If it hadn't gotten involved, we would've won by 1.

image.thumb.png.717f7f462c1b33e93afd491ffcfb1d7d.png

Despite the loss, this was a fairly tight game, and we could've gotten away with a draw here, but we weren't that lucky.

 

Team Meeting

image.thumb.png.6e6cfa3aac29e1f892fa00be565641e0.png

Hopefully this helps.

 

Match 2 - VS Bristol City (League)

image.thumb.png.899e9c84217aac4724dd1d372354956f.png

image.thumb.png.c0f107ad3d07543c87fc5d53b7cb9c05.png

Annoyingly, that team meeting did little to help us. Luckily, we still have chances - we only need to get a win or two in this or the next month, and we should be relegation free. 

 

Match 3 - VS Sheff Wed (League)

image.thumb.png.b1dc474d4fa29eefed8c66e2d4b78f7b.png

image.thumb.png.8c783243e60a5cce50e05c3b2ed64b62.png

image.thumb.png.523d5bc81cd66fe5f034ac283a86b8d0.png

The fight is back. We need to keep fighting like this, and we'll get a win.

 

Match 4 - VS Wigan (League)

image.thumb.png.a67d6f6cc7c7a73acf067a63184eb648.png

image.thumb.png.be35bc02a07c714de03de6f22555ebd7.png

image.thumb.png.1139e7a981cabdd49a40f2c7df03b4ef.png

A stellar performance from the lads. Unfortunately, we're still in relegation spots. I forsee only needing another win to get out though.

 

Match 5 - VS Derby (League)

image.thumb.png.06ec255f446dee8387aa922d7b0e4727.png

image.thumb.png.8b50df0b614eed1c948154ee517c7448.png

image.thumb.png.e73798513826974519f604c33eae185c.png

Another poor game for us. 

 

New Tactic

image.thumb.png.0de035266c3a147fa072eed57390109d.png

The only major change is both wingers changed to Support. Just an experiment to see if something happens because of it.

 

Match 6 - VS Reading (League)

image.thumb.png.f91f158824f4d7f773a307b930a140e4.png

image.thumb.png.d1ce99d795431c7a8354228c8e7e3e37.png

A strong defensive performance - it's a pity we couldn't have a strong defensive performance and a strong attacking performance. I'm changing up the next game for the more forward Winger to be attacking - maybe this will increase attacking threat, while not compromising the defence too much.

Alex Cairns shines again! It's just a pity he couldn't save us and get us a very needed victory. But it'll come. Hopefully.

 

Match 2 - VS Cardiff (League)

image.thumb.png.ae3a30a5bad1b425c300867cbd30c680.png

A below par performance from nearly everyone in the team. 

 

Team Meeting

image.thumb.png.3d8a8ab661799c1cb1d3cfbadb528bf0.png

This was a rather lucky draw. Despite it, we're still in 23rd place. We're also getting very close to the end of the season. In order to stay in for next season's championship, we need to win a minimum of 2 games and draw 1. Otherwise known as 7 points. Next month, is crucial. We only have 6 games left.

Morris wants to stay! ...Again.

image.thumb.png.2eb026e5084f1d0b707aee68fdc38623.png

Despite my slight annoyance at this, the fact that he now wants to say, means that our performances may be stronger. Maybe.

 

Match 1 - VS Preston (League)

image.thumb.png.58b7e1b9e63973038d79ff5f95e4bec6.png

image.thumb.png.ae1fffcda390f485a01e0eb17113f58c.png

image.thumb.png.e128ded1e21cb0e1b392febcd025d8bd.png

A disappointing loss, but it was to be expected. If we lose 3 more games after this, we're done for.

 

Match 2 - VS Nottingham Forest (League)

image.thumb.png.b426c5f40472b7e3111d34a0526a2c6b.png

image.thumb.png.5dc120d11b83c9b0736075c4e3184f58.png

Another fightful loss, we're this close to being relegated, and we'll clinch dropping down with two more losses.

 

Match 3 - VS Blackburn (League)

image.thumb.png.5704f4422ea121e9aab8accb9845310e.png

image.thumb.png.e14c3508ddf7dd4a018fb229de99c11e.png

image.thumb.png.2e5e9ac17538901bc1cd24beaea0d839.png

Another loss, another game. We have three more games, and we will probably need to win all 3 to stay up. Not a easy task.

 

Match 4 - VS Barnsley (League)

image.thumb.png.de20a0fde9fc8cf3db4c59ac027e37e0.png

image.thumb.png.0f4275bd08103bbe316d27c441526fd9.png

image.thumb.png.03833bf7cf092082ca5139699bf4dbd6.png

With relegation now a certainty, many players will want to leave, and many players will be leaving. We will likely need to do a squad rebuild, this time with the tactic being a 4-4-2 (after this season ends in two matches)

image.png.85f1a7e092370ab5954a441df09f4e50.png

Following this, these 6 players will likely leave out of my control - maybe not all of them, but I'm expecting some to go. We need some to go.

 

Match 5 - VS Middlesbrough (League)

image.thumb.png.b9d5e7b139f2ebfdc8aac6836bff042a.png

image.thumb.png.1a82485268ec5b66349a9b1f873e5370.png

image.thumb.png.a3cddbe96dcb5410fcdc9349df0fb3a3.png

We managed to draw with Middlesbrough thanks mostly to a surprising but far too late brilliant performance from Jamie Wood.

 

Match 6 - VS Birmingham City (League)

image.thumb.png.1ec571509f4927b44d89dc03bc3b8a10.png

image.thumb.png.78e06dc04ed96e64e0e14b70e3ace63b.png

image.thumb.png.009285ab9910ad863e7eeba83347ff3e.png

Gutted. Still, a good match despite the loss, and the relegation that was confirmed 2 matches ago.

 

End of Season League Table

image.thumb.png.25508c618e6f7bf7465d5bdbffb44ebd.png

We ended the season dead in 24th. Disappointing, but we'll come back next season, with a bit of luck!

Surprising loss. We decided to rest a fair few of the players, and paid for it.

A good draw, though we should've done more.

Another good win, but Tom Clarke is doing ****. Time for the reserve team for you then.

We could've easily finished this game 4-0, but we gave away a penalty, and that was that.

Going well back in league 1. Have you invested any money into your junior coaching or youth recruitment yet?

Actually, yeah. We recently started working on improving Youth Facilities, but other than that, no. We'll be considered Level 1 when it's completed though.
