I found that you can get decent guys in for 3 month loans.
Good to see you're going for youth. Definitely needed. Good to see you fixed the training/coaches as well. I got the academy/training facilities upgraded before I left so hopefully it will start producing new talent.
Not bad for our first ever Carling Cup game. Looking forward to the FA Cup. I challenge you to beat my 3rd Round run .
First penalties I've managed the team in, players responded great even though we had only three decent scorers on the field. Lonergan was the star of the tie-break saving two penalties, which was nice.
It was also a chance to use some less used players, and even a fairly promising youngster, John Bartley, who broke the record for younger player ever for the club.
Jesus Christ SI. It's not even October yet. Plus Kevin Phillips has been on and off (more off than on), and Caldwell and Lonergan recently also got injured. F*ck. Actually getting a point was fantastic.
Sorry guys a few problems have kept me from finishing it, but I'm now making up for lost time. I'm in March already, might finish it today or tomorrow
So far it's been shyte. I mean I've managed to keep us in the race for the Playoff, but the amount of injuries has just ruined this season completely. SI need to do something about this issue. Kevin Phillips is constantly injured, when he's not he's bagging hattricks so you see how he's missed. At one point we had Eikrem, Rooney, Phillips, Mérida, Cladwell and McCann all injured at the same time. Fortunately I've brought a young offensive midfielder in January who helped bag some important goals in a much needed time... We fell in the FA Cup against Tottenham, impossible to beat them I didn't try much, and the Johnstone's trophy I couldn't care less...
History has been made! We've secured 7th place, and with it the final spot for the playoff that can get us into League One! Now if only we hadn't drawn the team higher up in the Playoff spots, haha... Screenies in a minute, guys!
Definitely too many draws I'd say... I don't mind the losses so much because sometimes we really don't deserved to win, there are definitely better teams in this Division... But the draws are frustrating, particularly the typical last minute screamers FM has got us used to...
This is the bloke we've brought in January, who provided us with much needed goals (he got 5) when people like Phillips, Elkrem, Rooney and Mérida were injured... Works wonders in AMC or ML/AML
Pretty good squad, I reckon it can be much much better, and it will have to be if we make it to League One... As you can see, Phillips, Elkrem and Norwood were crucial, the latter getting the highest av.rating(only one above 7.00) got my ego inflated obviously haha...
Ass whoop of the season
And a major home win against future division champions Brighton; amazing stuff
