I've wanted to do a 1kc starting from the bottom rung for a while now and I finally gone for it - basically I wanted to get in quick before the big boys arrive and the leader board goes up for the 2kc! I've gone pretty detailed for the first update just to 'set the scene' and will probably scale it back going forward...

The Club - AFC Telford

I know nothing about the club or the place (except that one of my uni housemates came from there...) but they do have top notch training facilities and when budgets are tight and players probably don't have the highest CA and PAs then the training is where you can realistically make up the difference between standing a chance and failing miserably.

 

The Player - Kyle Connell

That's right, I've beaten you all to him! You lot will have to make do with Isak and Mbappe for your attempts coz I've called dibs on Kyle Connell.

Basically I had no idea on this and just searched for someone young, affordable, that might join and had good (or at least not terrible) stats for aerial, shooting, movement and, so i can keep him on the pitch for as long as possible, the physical attributes. Step forward Kyle

That is the end of the season mind so his stats did increase a little.

The big dilemma I'm facing is that the only way he'd sign was with the dreaded BCRC so this might be all over in the next few days anyway.

He's got a good coach report for youngster but I'll take that 5 star rating with a pinch of salt

Staff

These training facilities deserve some decent coaches so I went for the biggest names available

Transfers

I know nothing about the lower leagues and had no money to spend after buying Connell and hiring my coaches. I sold a few players just to get my wages in the the black in the hope the freebies i could get were better than the existing players. The pick of the newbies was Larnell Cole who was once a hot prospect at Man Utd and has played for England U20s. All the screenshots are at the end of the year so some players went later in the season

Season 1

We won the league and had a decent run in the FA Cup due to some kind draws which net a few quid in giant killing wins against VNN and league 2 teams.

A good season from Cole on the right wing - he has a BCRC too though

Connell

A solid first season for a 16 year old, I didn't really know what the best system was but ended up with some lop-sided tactics to try and send everything through Cole on the right wing. 

Who knows if this will go anywhere but i'm going to give it a jolly good go. I'll need to get those numbers up whilst he's in the lower leagues, a striker of his standard might not cut it at the top. My first target is 200 goals before he turns 20 which gives me 4 season at an avr of 50 per season

Good start. If he does want to move on you could move clubs yourself and take him with you. Only goals in games you manage count but I'm sure you can move clubs. Maybe @danovic78 will confirm.

Yeah as long as you are the manager of the players club then it counts, I did it last year with Buitink, moved from PSV to Arsenal

That's my plan, once I've fleeced the lower leagues as much as possible I'll try and move clubs rather than slug it out in the prem trying to compete - my goal is the 1k rather than achieving anything with Telford. I moved from Newcastle to Sporting on my Isak 1k after a few years and transition was seamless. I just made sure before i took the job that they'd have enough money to buy him straight off the bat without any hitches. I doubt his value will ever go up enough for me not to be able to just offer a whack load of dough to both club and player.

Season 2

AFC Telford have hit the big time - the Vanarama National League! I had a serious clear out to kick things off 
Transfers 

You can get some very, very good released youth players for free if you don't mind sifting through all the rubbish on the no club screen

Competitions

The league was a doddle and we had a decent run in the FA Cup which again provided funds from giant killings, we won the FA trophy too.

Kyle

Not a huge jump in stats, good physicals but i'm concerned by that teamwork 20.

IMG_0581.thumb.PNG.3e86210ded1d8ae3df06a8b82d7b2b86.PNG

He's generated some interest this year which is worrying with the BCRC

IMG_0583.thumb.PNG.43cd709454890804819f8dc5a24ce265.PNG

An absolute peach of an injury helped stave of the bids in the January window

IMG_0584.thumb.PNG.a9d137e1c6d1e889c45920fbe0cd5c90.PNG

A slight improvement, my sub strikers have a much better rate upfront so i think my tactics are OK, i think he is just limited as goalscorer.

Total Goals - 72

This might be a slog

You're looking at roughly 200 gls by the time he hits 20yo. That's extremely good, mate. Well on track for big numbers here.

Just reading through for the first time - this is going to be fascinating! Brave choice to do this, but so much more interesting than taking a wonderkid on at a top club. Bravo! 

Decent start. OME or EME?
