Last season, my second managing Lancaster City we managed to secure ourselves a playoff place finishing 6th but unfortunately lost in the semi final to Kettering so we have another year at the bottom in the Conference North. The first thing I needed to do this season is get some of my better players signed… Continue reading Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 3
In our first season managing Lancaster City we brought in 29 players and after breaking the league record for the number of draws in a season we managed to finish in a very good 11th place. Now we have a big pre-season ahead of us, all our players other than our youth players are out… Continue reading Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 2
At the start of 2020 I wrote a post saying that I was going to write more, I hadn’t done much in 2019 so I set myself a goal of posting weekly or a minimum 52 posts over the year. My 2019 figures showed that in 2019 my views and visitors were down 8% on… Continue reading My 2020 Blog Summary and 2021 Aim
After playing a FM19 save for 107 days played and mostly missing FM20, I’ve decided to move onto FM21 and hopefully keep a save going to rival my FM19 save. My Football Manager 2021 save started during the Beta and after going on holiday for the first season I have taken over at newly promoted… Continue reading Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 1
Last year in our third premiership season we progressed from 9th, to 5th then 4th last year so this year my aim for East Stirlingshire is a top 3 finish and hopefully a champions league place. Last year we also had a good run to the semi finals of the Europa League where my old… Continue reading Football Manager – The Shires Push for Top 3
Last season with East Stirlingshire we managed a 5th place finish but that was topped by beating my old team Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup final which qualified us for the Europa cup this season. If we want another top half finish or do better than 5th as well as competing in Europe I… Continue reading Football Manager – Taking The Shire into Europe
So last year East Stirlingshire managed to survive in the Premiership with basically the same team that got us promoted finishing 9th. We now need to try and build upon that and strengthen our squad so we can hopefully finish higher, ideally top half as the 45 points we got would have been enough the… Continue reading Football Manager – The Shires Second Premiership Season
Having taken over East Stirlingshire not that long ago we have won back to back to back promotions all the way up the leagues into the Scottish Premiership. Every season I expected us to struggle but so far we’ve not had many problems. I put it down to poor AI as we can bring in… Continue reading Football Manager – The Shire are in the Premiership.
FM21 Beta is now out and I’ve started my first save during the Beta and plan to continue it when the full game goes live on 24th November 2020 unless there are any major bugs that force me to start over. I’ve mentioned in my previous post how my save will go but to reiterate,… Continue reading Football Manager – First FM21 save in the Beta.
After back to back promotions with East Stirlingshire we are starting our first season in the Championship. The last 2 season’s have been surprisingly easy but I’m not expecting this year to be as easy as we now need to compete with clubs relegated from the premier league who have bigger budgets than we do.… Continue reading Football Manager – Into the Championship With The Shire
