Career KN Attempting; it’s a long way to the top (S3 ✅)

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

So this morning was bored on my way to work, so I thought I’d load up FMM19, but I wanted a reason to get really into career mode. I’ve struggled to bond with this FM for some unknown reason. 

 

So I’ll be attempting it’s a long way to the top, as it seems interesting and I like the idea of being a nobody to a club legend. 

 

 

As required I post the screen shots below; 

Season 1!

 

I thought I’d be able to apply for some VNL or VNN/VNS jobs, but nope there was nothing available for myself. I decided to treat myself to a nice long holiday as there was no jobs till beginning of October. 

 

I got offer the Dartford job, but they was expecting me to turn the club around from 20th to challenging to title, normally I would take on the challenge, but being from Yorkshire, I thought I’d get a job closer to home. I kindly rejected the job (what’s the old saying? Beggers can’t be chooser, or something like that).

 

The Chester Job become available so I decided to apply for that, and lord behold I was the new announced manager of Chester. However, that went down like a lead balloon with some of the players. They wanted a manager with experience, but what they didn’t know is... that I’m the real special one (que evil laugh). 

 

My first signing as manager was the trusty Corie Andrews on a free! Such a good player for lower leagues. 

 

Failing to recognise that our problems was midfield or attack, it was our leaky defence conceding too many goals. I made a couple of loan signings and tweak with the tactics to guide the from 15th/16th to 9th... could have been promoted if didn’t do a Spurs (sorry to any Spurs fans) and ended up drawing our last 4 games. Annoying I know. 

 

I’ll be back once I’ve completed season 2... I feel like this could take a while

So on to the next season, and the board wanted me to challenge for the play off, but I fell short. I was trying to find a suitable tactic that would slowly guide Chester through the divisions. 

I thought there is two ways of doing this, 1.) score more goals than the other team, but always a bit risky, or 2.) be a solid defensive unit. Fair to say, I opted for option number 2. 

Our pre season was horrible, we lost 3 and drew 1, which had me thinking that this was going to be a long season a head. However that wasn’t the case! We hit the floor running beating some of the bigger teams in VNN and only conceding 1 goal in about 4/5 games. 

However, fast forward to end of the season (due to lack of screen shot) we was battling throughout the season with Stockport for first place, which look like we was going to bottle it, but my team showed the true class after a couple of defeats to get back on track. 

Cup runs; 

FA Cup - Second Round

FA Trophy - Final, lost on penalties. 

For season three in VNL, I’ll be taking screen shots of results. I should have done it before for season 1 & 2, but just forgot. 

We won manager of the month a handful of times! This showed how well our team had progress through the season.

So entering season 3, I was dubious whether we’d stay up in the VNL. Especially, with Corie Andrews are star striker leaving us so we had to find a replacement fast as this league comes thick and fast. 

I ended up signing 3 strikers, Kyle Wotton, Tyler Smith and Donovan Wilson. Kyle Wotton used to play for Scunthorpe, so I thought he would be half decent at this level. Only downside is, he is a target man and that’s not my style of play, but he proved me wrong finishing top goal scorer of the league. 

So after a half decent pre season, I was excited to get the season under way. However, Dagenham & Redbridge shot me down at the first hurdle and shown me what this league going to be like. 

Fast forward to 8 months where we are challenging for a title or more realistically a play off spot. We needed to win our last three games and hoped that Crawley and Chesterfield slipped up for that automatic promotion place, but noooooo, we decided to become the bottle jobs. Drawing 3-3 with Bromley, losing 3-0 to Aldershot and beating Salford 4-2. 

Buuuut... we did it! We went up through the play offs beating Barnet and Chesterfield in extra time, which honestly, had me sweating like mad because both teams I know could score at any moment. 

I got some decent job offers throughout the season... honestly some league 1 & 2 jobs, but my thought was if I have two promotions on my CV would look better than switching clubs. 

I’ve attach a bunch of photos of the season and some key games
