Good Evening All,

Choosing the career

Choosing this career was easy and one I always aim to do each season on FMM. I have family members in Edzell, near Montrose aswell as having watched them play whilst up north. The club holds a soft spot for me and I want to prove to myself the Philosophy still works.

Stadium & FACILITIES

The club holds relatively good Facilities and a modest stadium. Both 1st team & youth facilities are average, which I felt should be sufficient for the level were at. The Stadium only holds one stand as you can see but the thing I wanted to change was the fanbase, with the 4,936 seats only currently getting 2000 fans using them.

Holiday & Assistant Manager

As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below:

Staff, Finances & Training

Montrose had a shortage of staff so I topped it up with people who fitted my philosophy( all of them were bronze standard). I aimed to keep finances green as future development would also depend on a good budget & good players at this level can be found cheaply. Training is now handled by my Assistant Landon Donovan.

Tactics

Given the quality of this squad, trying to implement Tiki Taka was always going to be tough. The tactic had good and bad moments, the defence always seemed shaky whilst the attack seemed good although lacking at times. Overall, the season was shaky and a lot of that was down to our low quality side getting to grips with it.

Squad

As you can see, Montrose was transformed top to bottom. Almost every original player was not good enough for this level and was changed with players who held a 10 rating in the most important attributes for there position. The scale of the change can be seen below, it would naturally take a while for a team to be born from so many individual signings.

The results

The season was a tense one, filled with determination, perseverance & grit BUT also success & progression. Montrose FC won promotion to the Ladbrokes Championship along with making it to the Semi Finals of the IRN-BRU cup, a remarkable feat. In conclusion & in truth, the season was a poor one & I had to ask the board for extra time twice BUT below the deep tension, the club found significant progression and the buds of a brighter future were planted. My philosophy worked and gave me a lot of confidence to keep going..
