Unbelievable, dude.

Really unbelievable. Congratulations!

Thanks. It's really stupid as I get really frustrated by each game and don't check on the league that much. So I was shocked when I noticed I was hovering around 10th most of the season.

End of Season 7 Review

Again another barnstorming season from York! Annoyingly we were in the European places pretty much all season, the dropped off towards the end. Thankfully, there were no major injury crises this season.

End of Season Review

A change of tactic in the New Year to something from my TTR days seemed to really pay off. Playing a 4-2-2-2 seemed to really suit the team, just need to ensure I keep an eye on the wingers as I’ve only really got 3 in total. Just need to work out what CM role combo works best for us. The double RPs seemed to work really well against Man City in the League Cup semi second leg, but then hasn’t worked since. I also don’t like the idea of having to players with essentially a free role in the middle of the park.

Again, we seemed to struggle against the teams below us in the league but were fine against the teams above us. I didn’t use the term “bigger” as we saw last year Tottenham got relegated and this season saw Arsenal go down this year.


I was hoping to get another season of battle against relegation, but my board seem to have gotten ahead of themselves and want mid-table as a minimum. A victim of my own success I guess.

Screenshot_20210827-195000.thumb.png.f17c15818d163eddd4458aaf9351f5eb.png

Again the board have upped their expectations, wanting European qualification.

We also got a new 30,000 seater stadium which we move into just before the new season starts. So cash will be flowing in nicely!

Screenshot_20210827-133809.thumb.png.e5f699ea9a873c23bc319aba0586e448.png

Looking at the players, the only ones who still aren’t maxed out are the older ones who are declining, a couple who have never gotten out of the reserves and/or have been injured and so dropped some attribute points. So I’ll see if I can push them to gain the points in more important areas than where they’ve lost them…

So impressive mate, smashing this, be amazing if you can do it, you’ve done so well.

Thanks. We seem to have a really struggle against "lower quality" teams. But seem really up for games against the "bigger" ones.
Plus we seem to have some red lines appearing on the relationship screen on the tactics... mainly Dyson and or Akel Wright causing issues I think...

I've been really struggling to be get back into this save. I'll play a game or two, then have to do something else and don't pick it up again for a few days or a week.

But when something like this happens in a game it makes you just want to play even more...

End of Season 8 Review

This season I really struggled to get through, I got up to about October then just couldn’t be bothered to play. I’d play one game then get annoyed or distracted by something else and not pick the game up again for a few days/week.

Plus my tactics seemed to be totally useless this season around about halfway through, I’ve spent a lot of time watch youtube videos of other tactics and had a great discussion with @DanEnglish watching over some highlights of my games, but I ran into the problem of the saved matches not aligning with the game I played.

But I powered through and with FMM22 coming out in just over a month I’ve got two seasons to get through. Fingers crossed I can make it in time!

  The players didn’t get any awards this year, I think they only managed to get into the team of the week once or twice all season.

Yes, I totally FM'd the final... But to be honest that's how most of my games against bigger clubs go. I generally get a fair share of possession but they totally dominate in terms of shots, we just somehow take our chances. Saying that, if they get to run at the GK or last man, they generally score where as we don't.

 

End of Season Review

What a result in Europe! The group stage seemed fairly easy and I think all the "bigger" clubs knocked each other out so I had a fairly easy run to the final.

I had to make some tactical tweaks mid-season, essentially just changing a few roles in midfield to try and the tactic change seemed to improve the results slightly. I then changed to a 4-1-2-2-1 towards the end of the season and again that seemed to improve results.

My strikers really don’t play well on their own up front, but that’s probably because no one is any good at crossing… so they’re not getting any service. The balls all have to be played along the ground, which again is tough as none of the midfield are particularly creative.

We seem to be able to score from corners at the near post fairly consistently so that’s actually where the majority of the goals come from. But once players start to get injured we start to struggle. This season we had some of the longest injuries (a month) I’ve had. So I know I’ve been lucky. But damn it! When one of your two good CDs, one of your 3 wide players plus your “best” striker are all injured at the same time it’s annoying!

 

Anyway, on to season 9, the penultimate season!

Wow. I hadn't looked at your players' attributes when we were talking before. They are awful. How you've managed to get them into the Premier League and keep them from getting relegated (let alone finishing 10th - EDIT: 7th?!?!) is a near miracle 👍

Yeah, this is why it's been even more of a struggle than just getting a good tactic. I'm sure if I had, well Premiership level players, then I'd have less issues. But I don't I have an mid-table ageing Vanarama National North quality side, in the Premier League and Europe now...

That’s the man marking option. You can find it when selecting roles.

Ah, ok! No way, I'm a zone-marking coach 😅

Well, this career wins my "longest open in a tab waiting to be read" award... Sorry 😟

You've done massively well to get to the this point, especially those Carabaou and Euro cups, and remarkably consistent in moving forwards, but it's down to inching forwards now. You have the hardest part in front of you, but I think you can go all the way with enough persistence. I understand why it might be difficult to get enthusiasm at some points. This is like a long distance marathon or something!

Keep it up mate.
