My captain from the start of the season had decided to retire and rather than extend his pain, I started to phase him out last season and this season he hardly played at all.

Needless to say he didn't join the non-playing staff as I was my coaching slots were all filled up.

End of Season Review

I have no idea how we managed that! Just pipping Bolton to the title was awesome, our defence seemed rock solid, I was worried as I had pretty much phased Newton, our captain, out of the side as he wanted to retire at the end of the season and his attributes has started to drop below the younger lads who would be taking his place. So a change in central defence and a change of captain was a big ask for the lads!

I did have to change up the tactics again around the new year to a 4-1-2-1-2 (essentially a narrow diamond) which seemed to get more goals and it meant I didn’t have to rely on the wingers, which going forward is going to be the plan as Bunn is starting to get on and Potts seems better up front that on the wing as his crossing doesn’t seem to be improving.

Screenshot_20210628-130603.thumb.png.7912dbf4c1b9f72236b8d7c633db34cc.png

 

There’s a few players who I think have maxed out their attributes, which is a shame as some of the seem quite young, but then some of the older ones keep getting bumps occasionally so maybe it’s just an age thing? Not that it says that. I did get my first “progress being stifled by the lack of quality training grounds" message, but a quick board request later (thankfully it was approved) and he was happy again.

A decent cup run in the pizza plate was nice, but it took it out of the players towards the end and it was hard to have players fit for the league after those games. Three cups and the league is a massive ask for such a small (and not very good) squad.

Onwards and upwards to League One! I have no idea what it’s going to be like, but I think I’m going to be struggling as the players are topping out on their abilities and there’s only so much tactics can do! Fingers crossed for maybe mid-table or possibly sneaking in the playoffs… (I don’t know as I haven’t actually finished the season yet!)

Tactics can probably get you into the championship before you get annhilated and fired!

This might be stating the bleeding obvious but having started an unemployed career and taken the York job, I can tell you that 3 straight promotions with no signings is massive! Well done and I hope the success continues even if success might need redefining from now on!!

End of Season 4 Review

After somehow winning League 2 we move on to League 1 and like I've said before, I'm expecting it to be tough as the quality of players in the other teams improves and I've got my fingers crossed for mid table, maybe sneaking into the playoffs.

 

The Squad

I'm just going to show the attributes at the end of the season. Because I'm lazy and the gifs are a pain in the arse to make and uploading them makes everything go weird.

End of Season Review

I have no idea how we managed that! I swear we were mid-table around Christmas and I was hoping to gold on and maybe sneak into the bottom of the playoff positions, but no we decided to go on a massive run of form and start scoring loads!

I did bring Jones in from the reserves as he didn't go on loan this season (no idea why) and quite frankly he was a revelation! I've had a couple of messages about him deserving a national team place which would be awesome, but it might mean he wants to leave. We'll have to see.

There is definitely players who have maxed out, but not many of the older ones who are dropping drastically, which is good.
I did have another retiree in Redshaw who was consistent, but with the emergence of Jones I didn't need him, I'll probably bring Guilfoyle up next season to allow Cassidy to step away too as he's over 30 now and I need my strikers to improve more.

My midfield is looking either old or not very good so I'm worried going forward...

 

Another cup to add to the collection as well in the Pizza Plate.

The first time we had a gold academy player too, so I'll be keeping an eye on him too!

Most of the job offers have been Championship or lower up to now, so some Premier League ones sprinkled in there too this season, plus Belgium! No idea why!

Let's see what the Championship has to offer... I reckon it'll be even more of a struggle.

Well done mate, great write up and a great season. Looking forward to seeing how you get on next season 👍

I expect it to be really really tough.

The players are quite simply not good enough to be challenging for promotion or even playoffs.

 

And I've still got 5 more years to go! I think consolidation could be the key.

Honestly, I don't know! I keep feeling like the wheels are about to come off, then change the tactic or have to stop playing to play the world cup or something else and when I come back to it we see to do really well.

I'm still hoping I can make it all the way up there, but my score will be where I finish after 10 years, which could be back in the national league!

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!

 

 

Good luck. I'm doing myself York save pretty hard but I'll sort this out.

Keep us tuned !!

Wow! Many people think the jump from L1 to the championship is the hardest on the pyramid, so I'm expecting a proper pasting. But you've surprised us so far? Maybe you'll nip into the prem.
