Binos123sams attempt at managing the binos (fmm18)

Recommended Posts

Usually when I make a thread on how I do on football manager it lasts for a week, then I just give up, bit this year I am hoping to stick at it and actually do well for a change

 

I'm going to start off unemployed and see what club takes me on, I'm able to manage in Spain, Italy, England and Scotland, but I'll probably start off in Scotland. Wish me luck :unsure:

Out of all the jobs available the only job that interested me was the Dundee United job, but that was given to Chris Powell, so it looks like I'll be starting the season unemployed.

wait until Dale Brooks gets sacked as Cowden boss. If the game reflects real life then around 12th August I would have thought...

It was the middle of January and I still was out of work, when I seen, that my boyhood club Stirling albion had sacked Dave Mackay and were second bottom in league, I decided to apply for the job and I got it.

I've got a lot of work to do if I want to improve the team, but I am confident, that I can do it.

He's still in charge there and they are 6th.

Pickard and Robinson ex Queens. Both players are overrated on FM

 

4-4-2 is a favorite hope it brings success. good start with a win

We had a lot of poor results in February, but we are promising going forward with new signing jake Pickard scoring 8 goals in all competitions, it is clear, that it is defence where my problems lie, so I have 3 players signed for next season who should help us fix our problems at the back. We were unlucky not to get something out of the Dundee match and much to my suprise we were still in the irn bru cup but managed to concede 7 goals against raith rovers, the sooner the seasons over the better as I can actually bring some half decent players in.

Pickards been quality for us and I put robinson in goals against cowden and he conceded 5 so I'll probably not be playing him again as I have a new keeper coming in next season once foden goes back to ross county.

                                March 

March was a much better month results wise as we went unbeaten. We got a boost at the start of the month with Darren Smith, Callum Morrison and Andy little all coming back from injury which certainly helped us out as we started getting much better results, my defence looks like it will do until the end of the season, but I shouldn't have to make any drastic changes for next season. In the last game against Elgin we were 3-1 up going into added time, but somehow they managed to score 2 goals in the last 2 minutes, fitness is also something we lack.Screenshot_20171113-235545.thumb.png.44113a81f1eb253a76b34b1c34525d31.png

We are 5 points outside the play-offs with 4 games to go and I can't see us making them this season, but I think we're looking strong for next season.

3 have just went and won 3 games in a row, taking us up to second going into the last match, I'm pretty confident of us making the play-ofs now and it's stenhousemuir who are also battling for the plays-offs. Montrose have won the league.

Going into the last game of the season, we had our fate in our own hands knowing that a draw would have been enough against stenhousemuir to make the play-offs. Could we do it?...

Spoiler

Yes we could, we went into the break a goal down, then we scored 3 times meaning with 15 minutes to go we we were 2 goals ahead, yet we blew that lead due mostly to a lack of fitness aswell as jamie longworth being in fine form, it was however enough to see us make the play-offs and even finish second. I wasn't expecting this much success so early on, but I am delighted with the results so far.

In the play-ofs we played cowdenbeath and in the first game we played in probably the craziest game I've ever seen as we won 6-5 after being 5-4 down with 10 minutes to go Screenshot_20171114-011842.thumb.png.8db835ba10bdc1a6999b13afd3f78a9a.png

We won the second game 4-3 meaning we are into the final were we play East Fife over 2 legs.

                               Play-off final

After all the hard work we had put in since I joined back in February and none of it would have mattered if we couldn't beat East Fife over two legs, my two biggest games in management so far.Screenshot_20171114-170147.thumb.png.bc442cba6b26c0ba2558729dda7b2199.png

We were away from home for the first game, we quickly took a 4 goal lead thanks to doubles from my two signings jake Pickard and Jordan Brown, we looked set for a easy ride back into league 1, but Chris Duggan pulled one back just before half time and kyle Wilson scored at the start of the second, putting us under a bit of pressure, jake Pickard brought our confidence back up with six minutes to go putting us 5-2 up and we had a comfortable lead going into the home tie. 

In the second leg it took us a bit of time to get started, but Jordan Brown scored midway through the first half which all but confirmed our promotion and the pressure was off. We didn't stop scoring there but, we won a penalty before the half time whistle which jake Pickard converted and Darren Smith put the cherry on the cake with a late goal with 10 minutes to go.

I've made 9 signings over pre season and I've got rid of 6 players, I've made what I believe is our strongest 11 before any pre season matches have been played and i'm pretty confident that I will achieve success with this squad.

                               Pre Season 

I decided to just skip through the friendlies as I couldn't be bothered with them, we managed to win every game in the betfred cup, which I was not expecting as Darren Smith, jake Pickard and Andy little were all injured, so we had to play 37 year old Peter MacDonald up front who done really well and we heavily rotated the team throughout the matches.

The first month has been decent and we find ourselves second behind queen of the South on goal difference, we've not been as sharp as I would like going forward, but we don't seem to be conceding alot of goals, so I'm not too bothered. Every game in September is away from home, so I expect our form to drop,but we should still be around the play-offs at the end of the month.
