Career Bottom to the top - Completed it mate

 Share

Recommended Posts

That time of year again when I go on my annual pilgrimage from the bottom of the football ladder to champions league glory.

 

Standard rules as usual.

No signings, promoted greys and youth system only.

 

The team of choice this year is Dover.

Sitting rock bottom of the Vanarama South with 1 win all season they are the winners.

 

Played out the 1st season already.

 

Got a decent winger from the youth intake but nothing special this season.

 

Was a bit of a slog but managed to avoid relegation after finally settling on a formation.

 

Think we'll do big things next season with the addition of one or two really good youth players.

 

Essential will be a goal keeper, target man and upgrading facilities but as we are part time I can't see that happening until we go up a division.

Season 2

What a second season.

Tweaked my tactics in te season and the rest was history.

Made ourselves very hard to beat.

Got a 4 ½ star keeper from youth intake and somehow won't the FA trophy on pens (Keeper making 3 saves).

Finally got training and youth facilities upgraded so they are noth now 2 stars.

Not expecting much from this year but you never know...

Season 3 Preview

This will be fun 🤨

Also, this keeper is a club legend already. Do well to hold onto him

Season 3

CENTURIONS

Much better season that i could have ever dreamed of.

Back to back promotions and next season will see us playing in the football league.

 

Got some real gems coming through. Going to be a struggled to keep hold of many of them. Trying to sign them up to the new 8 year contract.

Season 5

We've done it again.

Another promotion. 

No title this year but won the national Cup, take that.

Boys developing nicely.

Majorly concerned about the lack of defensive options I am getting from the youth intake.

Hopefully this year will be good, my back up team back 3 are pretty terrible, would expect them to get ripped apart in the championship.

Really nice work so far and some great youth players. Did you do anything special to get the GK? Lots of gk coaches?

Nah mate just lucked out.

Very restricted with the natural coaches I could get so 3 are general and one is fitness.

Aimt to change to 2 attacking and 2 fitness when I can attract better coaches

Hayır dostum şansım yaver gitti.

Alabileceğim doğal antrenörler çok sınırlıydı 3'ü genel, biri de fitness.

Daha iyi antrenörler çekebildiğimde 2 hücum ve 2 kondisyona geçmeyi hedefleyin

 

What do you think is the best trainer lineup

Great progress, I like the nice and simple setup too (y)

Simple yet very effective. 

Strong at the back, considering the standards of my 3 cente backs.

Gets a good few goals too.

Haven't tested anywhere else. Might be great with higher calibre of player

Season 6

Only gone and done it again!

Incredibly we've somehow made it 5 straight promotions.

Some big teams down in the championship so happy to be top half let alone top 2!!

Surely next season will be a struggle, although I've said that for the last few campaigns.

 

Below is my current starting 11 including some of the subs that are pushing for a start.

Had some great prospects come through over the year.

Season 7

Missed out on Europe by a Luiz dias 86th minute winner!!!

Too many draws but can't complain here really.

If Season in the prem and we more than survive.

Players developing nicely.

Chelsea relegated!!

My players are taking over the England under 21s.

Still none in the full team but surely its only a matter of time.

Well done, have you played this formation / tactic right from start of season 1 or changed it as you’ve moved up the leagues ?

Awesome.

Do you make any tactical tweaks in game or just plug n play with it ?

Generally plug and play.

Waiting to change it when / if I ever get any decent wing backs

Do you have any recommendations with what to do with youth players.

Like is it best to prioritise physical training first and then technical stuff or vice Versa etc.

Any little youth tips like that ? I’m doing a similar save so any help appreciated in their development.

Not really.

I train them in the position I want them to play. 

If they aren't good enough I'll loan them out.

I'd usually prioritise crossing for wingers, aerial for strikers but other than that I don't really do much else

Any of your players made the England team yet mate ?

I have copied your tactics for my academy save and they work well. I’ve just won the vanarama north on the last game of the season.

One question though, using your tactics I’ve got that stupid entertainer badge that makes everyone’s morale plummet (a completely ridiculous thing to put into the game).

Im assuming you also got that, how did you get around it etc ?

I like the look of this challenge so will give it a go too. I’m getting fatigue from my 1k save so will park it for a little bit and this takes my head away from regen hunting which leads to boredom when team is maxed too easily.

Its a good challenge.


Can get tedious too, awaiting on decent youth intake players.


I've been lucky enough to fly up the divisions but have plateaued now.

Need to take it to the next level.

Also restricts what tactics you can play which adds to the challenge.

 

Who are you doing your 1k challenge with?

I am chopping and changing loads as I try and work out a decent 1k tactic when I get bored with the Dover save.

 

Anyway, good luck with it, I'd recommend you pick a team with a decent training facility and youth facilities.

My goalkeeper got called up recently but didn't get any game time.

I'd say half my players are probably better than the starters for England but like in real life they don't get a chance.

Well done getting out of the league in 1st season.

What team did you pick?

 

Yes I am stuck with the Entertainer badge also.

As it was my 1st load I didnt have anything unlocked so stuck with it, probably forever, so yeah morale takes a big hit.

It's ridiculous aint it!!

Van Persie. He’s a beast. I went with the Turkish league for a bit of a change too so won’t get huuuge numbers but he’s firing now. 


Im looking at this challenge too but just need a tactic for small teams. I’ll dig through my archives…

Ah yes, thought I saw this before.

 

Had to do the same, went back to one of my very first posts to find something decent.

Tried and tested a few in the 1st season before settling for what I am running in the 2nd.

I like that you've gone somewhere different, only so many Celtic or Ajax saves you can deal with!!

 

I'll be giving the 1k challenge a go once / if I ever finish this!
