Career Geordiekrispy's Attempt to take York FC as far as he can: S7


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As it appears to be the most popular choice in the poll with just under 35% of the votes I would like to announce my latest career…

geordie.thumb.jpg.ac9219efc14fffc3523b5f0438ea63b1.jpg

 

 I would like to say that in second place was either the Augusta challenge or the History Lane challenge. These two I think work best as H2H's and so when the new FMM drops I'm hoping that I can get some people interested in doing these with me, or let me be included in them if they se them up.

 

Taking York FC as far as I can...

The challenge is to take control of a club in the Vanarama National League North or South and taking them as far as you can in 10 seasons. Your final score being whatever position you finish that 10th season. There are ZERO transfers in allowed, so no youth intakes or signing of grey players from the reserves either!

 

I think I’m going to be writing this career up a little differently (it may change depending on how much work it is). As there will be players that we come to love and love to hate I’ve no doubt, it’s not as if I can go and get a new player to replace someone who has a bad attitude or just plain isn’t good enough.

 

Potential Stumbling Blocks

 

I’d like to first off point some issues I can see myself coming up against and how I am hoping to get around them;

I have a feeling that once we get promoted once or twice some of the players are simply just not going to be good enough for the league they’re in. I feel I’ll be doing a bit of a Rafa and having mediocre to poor players playing well (if possible), which links into the next issue.

Managing the board’s expectations, gut instinct is that the board are going to always be surprised at how the club is doing. When we get promoted I will be trying to battle against relegation. I don’t think it’s going to be a straight shoot up the ladder like a normal bottom up career as I can’t sign new players when they retire (I’m tempted to try and get them in as staff but I feel most of them will want to be coaches and I’d prefer to get the best backroom staff I can to ensure that the players are progressing as much as they can do).

Lack of players in certain positions, as you will see by the squad it seems a bit light in certain areas. There’s only so much re-training I think I’ll be able to do. That and an fairly frequent change in formation to suit who’s available, which lead to its own problems of the players not being used to a formation (which generally isn’t an issue, but it does show in the post-match reports sometimes).

 

Player Attributes

 

I’m going to be taking screenshots of every player at the start of the end of the season (just before it ticks over) and on 1st Jan. This should help us see how players are developing/declining. My plan is to make gifs of their attributes page.

I will also be taking screenshots of each attribute type and how people have progressed, from the training screens.

 

Player Potential

 

I also want to try and keep track of their current and potential ability. This is obviously dependent on the coaches at the club, so hopefully they’ll get better as we get coaches who are better at judging abilities rather than worse as they’re not good enough…

 

Awards

 

I’ll include any awards that I or the players receive, probably just the annual awards rather than the monthly ones too.

 

Injuries

I thought about including every injury that the players get, but I’d already got to the new year and hadn’t been taking screenshots of the messages when I had them (I had a bit injury pile up in October-ish time) and I can’t think of a way of showing players injury history.

 

Manager's Best Eleven

 

I will be taking a screenshot of the year’s best XI, plus the overall. I feel it’ll be interesting to see if players come in and surpass the initial ones or if that right back in my first season really was the best one at the club! But I feel they’ll be getting lower scores higher up the leagues so that may not accurately reflect the “best XI”.

 

Squad Depth

 

It could be interesting to see the squad depth gradually turn from green to red as players retire.

 

 

Transfers and Academy Players

Obviously I’ll not be signing anyone so I’ll be showing that in the Transfers in. But for the academy players I feel like I should keep track of them, or at least show the intake screen and individual player profile screens.

 

Retiring players

 

I feel like I should shout out any players that actually retire, I’ll probably be trying to keep them around as long as possible, even if it’s just to mentor or make up the reserve squad. Just so there’s emergency back-up if needed.

 

Staff and Manager History & Profile

 

I think watching my staff improve will be interesting, just to see if a better quality of coaches help improve the players, if better scouts mean my player current and potential abilities change and if better physios do actually mean less games missed due to injuries.

I think to start with I will be just getting the best natural staff I can do. Once I’ve got them in I doubt I’ll change them unless I need to get more fitness staff in compared to attacking/defense/etc.

 

Season Review

I'll probably write a bit of blurb about each season when I write it up, if there was anything that I needed to overcome or a good/bad run of games.

 

 

I have already a couple of seasons in the tank and will be trying to write them up in the next few days, but I can say it's a lot quicker to smash through the seasons when there's no transfers to do!

Season 1 Start

A quick caveat, I didn’t take all the screenshots initially, so I had to start a new career and take screenshots (so some of the initial attributes/potentials may be off).

 

So without further ado, let’s introduce the players I will no doubt grow to love/hate.

The First Team Squad as they are on 6th October 2020

 

Screenshot_20210615-064859.thumb.png.bd83c3c51a4a6f3020469ebcaf8d1eb3.png

 

As you can see the game currently thinks that my “star” players are my GK, DC (who’s captain) and AMLC (who’s the best paid at the club).

The Reserve Squad as they are 6th October 2020

 

Screenshot_20210615-064905.thumb.png.c6c977b723609de755f683b0d85bdc39.png

 

And the reserve squad is actually fairly full (one of the reasons I picked York FC for this challenge).

Squad Depth & Team Summary

The coaches think that at the start of the career I'm a little bit light on the right hand side of the midfield.

Current and Potential Ratings

Spoiler

S1.0.thumb.png.049ed85ec87e0dd833b12d7d9f83817f.png

 

 

So some of the younger/reserves players actually have half decent potential (as the current coaches see them anyway) and overall we seem to a good solid 3* team.

 

Staff

Screenshot_20210621-092139.thumb.png.b6f8adc4866cece791ae07fdf5ced7c3.png

The staff needed a little bit of an overhaul, but not massive as we didn't have much money, essentially I got rid of any staff that didn't have natural aptitude, and got a couple of scouts (mainly for opposition scouting as it's not as if I'll need any new players)

 

Tactics

Tactic-wise I’m starting off with a 4-2-3-1 as I’ve had a good amount of success with it in other saves and we can make it work with the players we’ve got in the first team. I think going forward we’ll probably lose our ability to use wingers given that there doesn’t seem to be any in the reserves and the younger players in the squad all seem to be central midfielders or strikers but I actually have a fairly decent spread of defenders.

Screenshot_20210621-092518.thumb.png.df061f9cd6c721a6443b615b02dd0316.png

I'm using man marking on my FBs to try and keep the opposition wingers from causing too many issues and one of my CMs to try and stop and play makers in midfield from being able to get that killer ball over my defence to their striker(s).

 

Final Thoughts

So that's the squad I've got to work with...

Honestly it doesn't seem as bad as it could be. There's a fair amount of depth in midfield and central defense (which is good other wise I'd end up having to use some 1 CD formation which I don't think would work in the lower leagues). We'll have to see how the season goes in terms of injuries and which players are capable of improving or if they're already pretty much topping out their PA.

 

Thanks for the comments so far, hopefully I can keep these updates interesting and not too full of screenshots so it's not too hard to read/follow.

I'd like to say a massive thanks to @George Traistă for the header on this post.

Looking forward to this too, this is a proper challenge. I'm curious to see what you can do with Harry Bunn, he did a job in the Championship a few years ago in real life... basic stats but should be useful for the level you are at now. Good luck!

Great intro there mate - sure you'll do a great job with it. I always find they come across best when you genuinely get into it yourself, rather than "playing for the crowd", as it were... This is a mad challenge, I'd be totally stuffed if i couldn't make signings! Surely you won't get higher than League One, which i think would be a remarkable achievement itself, frankly! Good luck!

Season 1 Mid-Season

So here we are halfway through the first season, let’s see how our players are progressing due to training, I’m not going to be showing you league positions or cup runs etc. as I think that will ruin the surprise at the end of the season.

Squad Training Attributes - Tech/Physical/Mental/GK

Overall some small improvements, the reserves who went out on loans didn't improve massively, but I don't think they've played a lot so far and to be honest the other team's facilities probably aren't as good as ours.

 

Player Potential

Spoiler

272027306_PotentialS1.5.thumb.png.42921346a73b236133375b3386def243.png

Not a great deal of change in potential, mainly due to the coaches not changing I think.

Staff

Spoiler

2028280514_StaffS1.5.thumb.png.bfa5f25f7483efba86671360e96fbd22.png

Speaking of staff, as you can see I had a little bit of staff improvement, but not massive. No coaching badges as I reckon I can get better staff next season.

 

So that's all I'm going to show you all for the half season update. Honestly I'm not sure they're worth it as there's not going to be a massive amount of change in 6 months (generally speaking, obviously it's less in the first season).

Also, my plan is to do a little video/gif of each player's attributes to show their changes, but I'm not sure how much it's worth it until later on... So I might still take screenshots of each player every 6 months but not show you those until the new season. Then there's a bit more of a gradual progression in the videos.

 

So let me know what you think, is it worth doing an update every 6 months? Or just when the new season is about to tick over? If you can think of anything else let me know.

Great update there mate, what a fantastic squad you had, no doubt you’ll win the champions league at some point 😂

I always think I’ll do updates every 6 months myself, but it’s if you can stop yourself playing the rest of the season and remember to update after 6 months😝

It's more the creating a separate save and remembering to take all the screenshots... It takes a while for an entire squad!

Just caught up with this and really like the concept. Glad you're doing this and look forward to following along...

This makes me think you might peak after about 4-6 seasons and then get relegated when those kids you have take over.

That it a fear I've got especially as most of the reserves have gone out on loan.

My current plan is to replace any players who are retiring with youngsters, or anyone who reaches 21 gets promoted automatically and I change the tactics/formation to best use the players I've got available.

 

I have a feeling I'm going to end up with a 4-3-3 as I've got a sold defence with full backs. A good amount of central midfielders, but they all can only play CM. And a decent amount of strikers, but again they can only play ST...

 End of Season 1/Start of Season 2

 

So at the end of each season I’ll show player progression as usual and I’ll also be talking about the overall performance of the team in the league and cups. Along with any awards any players or myself win and any retirements.

 

The Squad

The First Team & Reserve Squads as they are on 26th June 2021

End of season review

 

So a fairly successful season, with Redshaw my "senior" striker getting the golden boot. A not too shabby run in the FA Cup getting through to the first round proper. Not great in the FA Trophy though only getting to the second round. I'm not sure how much I'm going to concentrate on the cups, probably just use them to get experience for the younger players and keeping fringe players happy.

McGill did ok, but I'm happy for him to go back to his parent club and never be heard from again. I think I've got better players in the reserves.

In terms of squad depth, I felt I needed some more players on the left wing, and Potts was already yellow there, so I trained him to be a left winger and played him there most of the season, alternating between him and Bunn. With Bunn also playing in the AMC role.

 

 

 

Now I just need to ensure that nobody gets a grumpy on when someone bigger comes in for them and ensure that any minimum fee clauses are stupidly high if they insist on them when signing new contracts.

 

I think I'll just be doing end of season updates rather than mid-season too, I just don't really have the time to do the write up and upload all the screenshots. I'm also just about to start my 4th season and so I want to get stuff posted before I forget what happened in the season and it makes these updates just a load of screenshots. I will start doing the gifs from next season though.

 

Also, thanks to @FuddledFox for this end of season graphic which will be updated at the end of every season.

p.s. I cannot be bothered to fix the replicated player screenshots... sorry :(

Well that's blown it... Mike Ashley was looking for your phone number as he really liked your "never spend any money on players" approach, but he's not going to be happy about this winning nonsense... 😄

Great work mate, some of those youngsters looking pretty good for this level. Should have another couple of good seasons before it starts getting difficult...

End of Season 2 Review

After a wildly successful first season, I expected to see some difficulties arise in my second season, thankfully there wasn't too many problems, and at the end of the season I had my first retiree. Let's have a look...

 

The Squad

I'm going to try the gifs here, see if they work. They seem to load in newest created at the top and I can't move them around as easily as normal images, so I'll just have to create them the other way around next season :)

End of Season Review

I think this season will be more of what I experience, it was a tough season, with us only just sneaking in to the playoff positions in the last few months. I'd be surprised if we didn't have to resort to the playoffs from now on. I can see other clubs being able to strengthen and recruit better players as the seasons go on.

I'm not sure if we'll try and rush up the leagues as quickly as possible and then hang on to the highest positions as we can. I doubt we'll be yo-yoing between leagues, unless the reserves are an improvement on the initial squad players they're replacing.

Keeping everyone fit is going to be a challenge too, I think I had some games where I was having to bring in the reserves to cover players who were injured or suspended. I don't think international call ups are going to be an issue, the players aren't that good (unless the sneak into the NI team or something).

1371497916_YorkS2.png.87f809ed257a5b40874f55c55b15ba54.png

Looking forward to next season in the proper league, it'll be interesting to see how outclassed we are. I'm hoping for sneaking into the playoffs again, not that I'm going to be telling the board and players that!

Oh good job, but yeah, I think it'll get harder from here on in. Might be okay in L2? But if so, then L1 will be really tough. Still that's what makes it interesting! 😄

I'm blaming @FuddledFox and his world cup.

It's probably better that you don't touch it at all during the World Cup. You've seen what's happened to the others!
