    Not sure if this would count for most league points? As obviously played more games than most leagues.
  3. Hey, remember there's a vacancy at Rangers just now if you're interested 👀😂
  4. 4-2-3-1, two wingers and an attacking midfielder. Akpom was playing as an advanced forward.

    Tell me about it 😮😂
  6. Already on a big club release clause, won't sign a new contract, wants to move to a big club, and is unhappy with me for saying he was not for sale 😢
  7. Season 3 - End of Season Update At the end of the season, this happened. Was that because of increasing interest in the other European top divisions, or was everyone just too busy watching the progress of Concord Rangers? If so, let's see if it was worth their time... July/August: At the end of my last update I showed my transfers in and out for the upcoming season. Players such as Chuba Akpom, former Arsenal striker, ex-Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes, and attacking midfielder Kieran Dowell, formerly of Everton were bought in, with some of my lesser used players leaving, including Kundai Benyu, Danny Parish, and Robbie Tinkler, who ended up joining big spending Billericay Town. Our new look team had a good pre-season of preparation for our upcoming League Two campaign, playing four friendlies, and winning them all, including 6-0 and 8-0 away victories against Bognor Regis and Welling. We'd shown we had more than enough to take on teams at that level, but the important question was how would we cope up against opposition from our own division? The league season started with the visit of Colchester, and after a goalless first half, new signing Akpom got his first competitive goals for the club, hitting a second half hatrick to ensure the three points would be ours. A solid start in the league, then. The next game was likely to be a tougher one for us, as Fulham were the visitors in the Carabao Cup first round. Our first time in this competition. Could we advance to the next round? Four more league games were played in August, with four wins achieved, including 3-0 and 4-0 scorelines against Tranmere and Doncaster. Five wins out of five in the league meant we ended the month top of the table, already four points clear. September: We started off the month with another new trophy to aim for, this time travelling to Peterborough for the first group game of the Checkatrade Trophy. An exciting end to the game, which saw three late goals scored, ended up being a 3-2 win for us, and meant we got off to a good start in the competition. As for league business, we had five games to play. A 3-1 victory over Forest Green, and a 4-0 home win against Cambridge came before picked up the three points against Gateshead, Crewe, and Gillingham. Five wins out of five ensuring that we stay in pole position. A lot of credit has to go to the on-fire Chuba Akpom, who has scored in every league game this season so far. October: League games were our only focus this month, with no cup games to be played. There was another late flurry of goals in one of our six games, with four goals split into evenly between the teams after the 84th minute, following two earlier goals for Concord, resulting in a 4-2 defeat for home team, AFC Wimbledon. This game came in between further victories, Bristol Rovers, Grimsby, Cheltenham, Accrington and Shrewsbury being the other victims of the so far unstoppable charge to the title from Concord. November: Our winning streak came to an end at the start of November, a late Yeovil goal ensuring each team would come away with a point. Following the game we received news that our dependable left-back Kieran Wallace, who I had signed while we were still in the Vanarama National League South, would soon be leaving the club, his big club release clause meaning we were powerless to reject the £45,000 bids from Kilmarnock and Lincoln. Wallace would decide to follow the path of Jordan Brown, in moving to play his football in Scotland. Meanwhile, we had two Cup games coming up back-to-back, an FA Cup first round tie vs York, being followed by the second Checkatrade Trophy group game, where we'd play Charlton. After losing at the first round stage of the FA Cup last year, would we be able to make more progress this time? The game against Charlton would end in a 2-2 draw, and after winning a penalty shoot-out, we claimed an extra bonus point. Four more league fixtures were scheduled for this month, and we finished how we started, with a 1-1 draw vs Crawley. Big wins were achieved in the other three games though, scoring 17 goals in the process of beating Chesterfield, Stevenage, and Rochdale. Chuba Akpom would score 10 of those 17 goals himself, continuing his fine form. December: Our first game of December would be the visit of Blackburn in the FA Cup second round. A tough test for sure, how would we do? The next game would also be a second round Cup game, Gillingham the visitors in the Checkatrade Trophy. An injury to right-back Todd Kane being the only negative in a comfortable 6-1 victory. A double from Chuba Akpom then helped us to a 3-0 league victory over Carlisle, although with just over double the number of shots and shots on targets that we had, Carlisle could justifiably be annoyed not to come away with anything. Back to the FA Cup, and the replay against Blackburn. One team would definitely be leaving the competition today. Who would it be? Three league games were still to be played, and Akpom scored nine more goals as we defeated Notts County and Morecambe, and drew 2-2 with Colchester. So, after 25 league games, Concord would be well on track for promotion, 17 points clear of second placed Rochdale, and still to be beaten in the league. January: January started off with wins over Tranmere and Doncaster, before Fleetwood were the spectators in the Chuba Akpom show, his six goals giving Concord a 7-1 victory. These goals meant Akpom had astonishingly already scored 65 goals for the season, 59 of them coming in the league. Next up was the Checkatrade Trophy third round, Bristol Rovers becoming the latest team to lose to us, as a 4-2 victory saw us into the next round. We followed this result up with two draws in the league, including a brilliant comeback from being 4-1 down at half-time away to Cambridge, ensuring our unbeaten league run didn't come to an end. At the end of January we were now 21 points clear of our nearest challenger. Also in this month, we bought in Jack Doyle on loan to replace Wallace at left back. February: A 4-0 win over Gateshead started off the month, before a quarter-final match up against Yeovil in the Checkatrade Trophy. A hatrick from the impressive Akpom saw us through to the next round. League wins against Crewe, Gillingham, Bristol City and Grimbsy followed, before the Checkatrade Trophy semi-final against Luton. We would eventually lose out on penalties, but were lucky to get that far. Disheartened at losing out on out last chance of a cup win this season, we headed back to league business. A 90+4' strike for Cheltenham meant they won the game 3-2,and we had lost our first league game. However, we were now 22 clear at the top, and surely going to end the season as champions. March: We had four games to play in March, winning against AFC Wimbledon and Accrington meant that winning our next game against Shrewsbury would guarantee us the league title. A hatrick, unsurprisingly from Akpom, would give us a 3-2 win, and we were champions! Three more points were added to our total with a win over Yeovil at the end of the month. April/May: Only the last six games of the season remained, and unlike previous years where we would draw most of the games, we won them all without conceding a goal. 147 goals scored, 125 points and only one loss! Not bad! Our top performer this season will not be a shock, Chuba Akpom far and away being the highest goalscorer. In fact, he scored more league goals than any other team in the league, and scored over 100 goals in all competitions! This amazing run of form saw him awarded a place in the team of the year along with three other team mates, as well as player of the month in every single month, except May! Couldn't have hoped for a better season! Same again next year? Let's hope so!

    Joint most goals by a player in a single match?
  10. Yeah, looking forward to it!
  11. Yeah, had some teams come in for me. Raith Rovers, Tranmere and Morecambe were a few of them if I remember correctly. And thanks, glad you liked it
