  1. Thanks guys!! I will try to post one more update today and one during the weekend. College has just been horrible this two weeks, but I'll try to update the career soon. Until then!
  2. Season 2 After a very successful debut season, what will season 2 bring our way? Let's find out Youth Intake: Board and Club: Transfers Transfer in's profiles: Now let's see who was bought. I'm specially excited about Barrow and Kane, and the already mentioned Fosu and Toral. We also managed to bring a 5k defender called Aaron Barnes who seems as one for the future. FA Cup: We had another early exit this season against a Championship side. The game stats didn't seem so unbalanced as the final result. League: After the first six months of the season went by we managed to grab a surprising 6th position. Although unexpected, our league position wasn't that confortable considering we were only 3 points away from 8th. Once again, we were tying a lot of games and our defense didn't seem fit for the task. Six months later we would finish 3rd place and would have to fight for promotion in the playoffs. We were 2nd for most of the last months, but a horrible streak of games saw us fall to 3rd. We would be playing the semi finals against Mk Dons The first game went pretty well, however, that disallowed goal would have saved me the nerves in the second leg. Although I expected a tough, nerve-racking game, Mullen managed to grab us a confortable lead only 20 minutes into the game. This lead meant we could substitute our best players and have them fit for our trip to Wembley to play against Doncaster. The final started off with an early goal from Play-Off hero Danny Mullen, but Doncaster were very quick to react few minutes later. The game was very tied, with few shots on target from both of us and with almost the same amount of time with the ball, however, few minutes into the second half, Tarique Fonsu scored a goal. We narrowed down, slowed the game, and 30 minutes or so after, the underdogs won promotion. Bradford City is a Championship team! Awards and Best Performers: Best Players: Awards: Reserves: Long-term objectives: - Have Nahki Wells retire here - Hire Greg Abbott as a coach Hired this season - Develop homegrown players - Become the base of English National Team - Become a dominant European force Records to break: - Win 2 FA Cups (won in 1911) - Win a Carabao Cup (Runner ups in 2013) - Win the Premier League - Go 22 games unbeaten (21 in 1968) - Win 11 consecutive matches (10 in 1983) - Have a player play 575 games (574 appearances from Ces Podd) - Have a player score 144 goals (143 from Bobby Campbell) - Have a player score 37 goals in a season (36 from David Layne 1961) - Get 95 points in a season (94 in 1984) - Manage the team for 498 matches (497 by Peter O'Rourke 1905-1921) Conclusion: Once again, the season leaves a nice taste in my mouth. However, we have to find some more consistency if we want to make it to the top anytime soon. The Championship is a very tough league since every team feels like a good team, so no-consistency means no promotion.
  3. Engana is a beat! Omg he alone created 42 goals, those stats are mad. once again a clean sweep of mayor competitions, congrats!
  4. Lovely challenge. I’ve managed Bermuda in every Football Manager save since Nahki Wells is my all time favorite from Bradford City. In none of my save attempts have I reached the World Cup, however I did reach a Gold Cup final once, losing it against my home-country Mexico. I might give it ago again this year
  5. Thanks! And yeah you are right, they were runner-ups to the First Division in 1999. I totally forgot the First Division became the second tier in 1992. My bad! Hahaha
  6. Season 1 From now on I'll be posting season summaries, I'll occasionally may post some media as the posts above but College is a little demanding at times haha. Let's start: Starting setup: Board and Club Status: Transfers Out: Tranfers In: Now let's see how the money was spent Here are the profiles of all the players we've bought: FA Cup: We played 4 matches in the FA Cup, finally exciting against Premiership side Everton. If you notice the match, they were absolutely dominant with 15x the shots we had and 11x the shots on target. An inclined road lays ahead of us if we ever want to compete in the first division. League: After the first six months went by, we sat in 3rd place but the situation was deceiving. We had a horrible start to the season with two consecutive defeats, tied every second game and scored few goals, we where also only 4 points above 11th place which wasn't very enticing nor what the board expected. But at least we kept the job, and were given a chance ahead of the next six months, which went as folows: We didn't manage to win it, but on the positive side we got our selves promoted and managed to get the team to function properly! Awards and Best Performers: Manager Profile: Best Players: Awards: Reserves: Long-term objectives: - Have Nahki Wells retire here - Hire Greg Abbott as a coach Hired this season - Develop homegrown players - Become the base of English National Team - Become a dominant European force Records to break: - Win 2 FA Cups (won in 1911) - Win a Carabao Cup (Runner ups in 2013) - Win the Premier League - Go 22 games unbeaten (21 in 1968) - Win 11 consecutive matches (10 in 1983) - Have a player play 575 games (574 appearances from Ces Podd) - Have a player score 144 goals (143 from Bobby Campbell) - Have a player score 37 goals in a season (36 from David Layne 1961) - Get 95 points in a season (94 in 1984) - Manage the team for 498 matches (497 by Peter O'Rourke 1905-1921) Conclusion: The season leaves a nice taste in my mouth. The lack of defensive steel and squad depth is already in my mind, as the bantams head into the new season. Let's wait and see how we fare there. Thanks for reading and until next time!
  7. It's a good way to spice up an otherwise generic career. Also, I've never been any good at big challenges like the DT or the 1000 goals, so smaller achievable challenges are my go to hahaha. Thanks!
  8. Just caught up again, you are doing fantastic. Nice point margin you achieved in that last season, I always use it to test my youngsters, and I'm sure you also make the most of those 3 or 4 games you have after winning the league. Very good talents, I can't see Thornton anywhere near the level I expected from him, my bet on the best rising start is now on Small, what a player! It's very hard to get good left wingbacks in the game, so you got a gem there. KIU
  9. 3. Objectives Santiago Fernandez: "Good afternoon people of the press, I'm delighted to be here today in front of you. As most of you already know, I will be talking charge of Bradford City at least until December of this year. I want to reassure the fans that I'm in love with this club, it's history captivates me, it's social responsibility and community involvement make it a huge club for me, and it's current situation infuriates me. Furthermore, I've worked in the club setup for many years now as a fitness coach, as an assistant, and as a Academy manager, and I know the club from the inside. All these points together, I believe make me the right man for the job, and being able to have this opportunity so early on in my managerial career is a dream come true. I want to thank the directors at Bradford City FC for their trust, and I warrant I won't make you regret your choice. Without much more to say, are there questions?" Question 1: "Good afternoon Mr. Fernandez, Henry McArdle from The Football League Paper here. My question is very simple, what are your goals in the short term? Are there any transfer targets you have in mind for the task?" Answer: "My answer is simple, the club must play League One football in no more than two seasons. We were only relegated a couple of seasons ago, and therefore we believe we have to take advantage of the fact that we still have par of the administrative team we had last season, that some experienced players have decided to stay and that our facilities haven't suffered any downgrade. The bounce back is necessary if we don't want this club to stagnate. As for the transfers, you'll have to wait and see. The club scouts are still working on it" Question 2: "Hello Mr. Fernandez, Abraham Wells from Sky Sports. You just talked about the club's objectives on the short term so I wanted to know: Are there any specific long term objectives? Assuming obviously you were to stay here" Answer: "My first longterm objective is to establish our selves in League One and become a competitive team being able to challenge for promotion to the Championship. If we make it to the next tier in the first couple of seasons, and manage to retain momentum we could be achieving this in just a few seasons. That's for the realistic objectives. If you ask me about my dreams, I'd like to become a record breaker manager and bring back the glory days to this wonderful club, and if you ask me, I would love to see some club legends back at the cub, we've already reached out to some, but who knows maybe one day we see Nahki Wells around Valley Parade's turf again. Who knows, maybe we will be playing Premier League on the long run hahaha but for now let's focus on more realistic targets " Career Objectives: Long-term objectives: - Have Nahki Wells retire here - Hire Greg Abbott as a coach - Develop homegrown players - Become the base of English National Team - Become a dominant European force Records to break: - Win 2 FA Cups (won in 1911) - Win a Carabao Cup (Runner ups in 2013) - Win the Premier League (Runner ups in 1999) - Go 22 games unbeaten (21 in 1968) - Win 11 consecutive matches (10 in 1983) - Have a player play 575 games (574 appearances from Ces Podd) - Have a player score 144 goals (143 from Bobby Campbell) - Have a player score 37 goals in a season (36 from David Layne 1961) - Get 95 points in a season (94 in 1984) - Manage the team for 498 matches (497 by Peter O'Rourke 1905-1921)
  10. Great job here, and what a beast Boussaid turned to be. He seems like a bargain to me, you'd probably get him for 3M and as Arsenal has shown us, sell him for around 40M in a couple of seasons. It's an amazing gem you've found and a very fun and short challenge to say the least.
  11. Great start for a first challenge. Really good choice, Aduriz is a beast irl, he is retiring at the end of this season but the last 3-4 years he's been on beast mode, even scoring a bicycle kick against Barcelona if I recall correctly. As for the challenge you are getting two newly promoted teams into the league, hopefully an extra one if the 18th team lost the playoff, and the 5 remaining teams from your division, so that amounts to a decent amount of 14-16 games for you to score. no doubt you'll get it. Good luck and KIU!
  12. Seems like a fun challenge, @Inferno's 322 goals record wont be easy to beat but if you manage to get them to at 40 goals per season (which you've shown capable of) then it shouldn't be impossible. I predict 360
  13. Massive, thank you for the post. It's always great to have your youngsters guided by older players.
