Straight promotions to the Premier League with AFC Telford from the Conference North and a 13th place finish in our first season, no clue why it's going so well but I won't complain!

Still plenty of high scoring games. Just had a 5-5 game away against villa. Won 5-2 against Leicester just a few games ago. Scored 4 in the opening 18 mins if I remember correctly.

Really struggling in the prem, currently 18th in Feb struggling to find a working tactic that doesn't involve conceding a minimum of two a game

Either you keep plenty of clean sheets or you concede massive amounts of goals. Conceding shedloads of goals is a given. In my first 15 games in the Prem I have conceded a whopping 37 goals. I have scored 30 too which is the third highest in the league. Just played poor Hull at home. Was leading 2-0 inside the first 17 mins and then BOOM three goals conceded before half time and I lost 2-4. Just lost 4 games in a row against teams below me and I'm now in the bottom three.

 

It's going to be a looong season (if I'm not sacked). Got no idea how to stop conceding. Think I'm conceding from 99/100 crosses.

I was given a 50 mil transfer budget with Telford in my second season in the Prem, currently pushing for Europa League spot with one of my star men being Jack Wilshere strangely enough

Playing with Boro in the premier league has always been an absolute nightmare for the first season, always concede about 3+ goals per game.

Managed to spend all of my 50m budget, the agent fees are ridiculous.

 

Out:

Kieran Trippier - £10m

Gibson (loan)

Marco Motta - £300k

Abraham - £150k

Alex Baptiste - £350k

Friend - £1m

Botinaelli - £500k

Downing- £500k

In:

Pau Lopez - £13m young goalkeeper from spain rated 3.5 star with 4.5 star potential, only 22 but is already proving to be a top class keeper, has earned me about 6 points already after 5 games.

Pablo Sarabia - £1.5m Left sided winger but can play across the front 3, mainly used as a backup player

Riyad Mahrez - £12.5M - valued at 15m but with leicester sitting mid table championship i managed to unsettle him and get him on the cheap, perfect inside forward.

Julio Buffarini - £3m Brought him in as a replacement for trippier on the cheap, doing just as good a job so far

Sven Bender - free - possibly my best signing, not in ability but will have a good resale value after a season or two, might get 12-14m for him, 100% profit and will do a job until then

Marc Standera - £15.5m - my most expensive signing, will start in the AMC role, once again a young player with potential to develop into something special

Aaron Creswell - £5.25m - replacement for husband as he just wasn't good enough for this level

 

other signings include the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, nacho from swansea and Josue, a backup AMC, all for fairly nominal fee's

 

My lineup looks like this

 

GK: Pau Lopez/ Scheichel

LB: Aaron cresswell/ Husband

CB: Eder Balanta/ Ayala

CB: Guillermo Burdisso/ Grillo

RB: Nacho/ Julian buffarini

CM (BBM) : Alfred Duncan/ Forshaw/ Leadbitter

CM (BWM) : Bender/ Fernando Tissone

AML (w): Rodrigo De Paul / Sarabia

AMC (ap): Standera / Josue

AMR: (if) Mahrez / Adomah / Stuani

ST: (af) David Selke / Stuani / Kike

 

games so far:

Man U (a) 1-1

Everton (h) 2-1

Millwall (a) (Cup) 1-2

Liverpool (h) 1-0

Tottenham (h) 1-3

Aresnal (a) 0-0

 

next up is chelsea, talk about a hard start to the fixture list, happy with how its going though, draws against ***nal and man u away are good points for a team expected to be fighting relegation as was the wins at everton and Liverpool, was down to 10 men against spurs from early on so wasn't really expecting much there, sitting 7th in the table after 5 games with very winnable games all the way up until boxing day after this chelsea game so hopefully can put a run together.

 

Also a mention to both Chapman and Jakupovic who are both ripping it up in the chapionship so far this season, at 18 years old, hopefully they'll be around my first team squad next season

My star striker who has scored 11 in 11 just broke his leg in November and is out for the season, taking Telford's top 4 hopes along with him...

Think they made the game a bit too easy with the post Jan patch... Hope I haven't spoken too soon though! I've signed literally nobody btw.

    • Thought would leave this here given it links in to our discussion on the thread so far: https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/core-uncertainties-transfer-priorities-assessing-19991246
    • New Championship season 2021/2022 kicks off on evening of Friday 6th August. Final game is 7th May 2022 Championship play off final is Sun 29th May 2022 *Hope we kick off the season at home on Friday evening. Decent crowd back at home for the curtain raiser would be nice.
    • As a keeper, it's a massive risk to stay put for a penalty. If you do and the taker just rolls it into either corner you look a right knob. It looks better to commit either way. When I was a lot younger I saved a penalty once just by assuming the taker would hit it into the top left corner. Usually such penalties aren't savable but the lad tried to loft it in rather than going for power and I just caught it, haha.
    • @Brunners Like the mirror of my footballing career! 😂
    • I'm guessing that our squad of 25 players next season will have a few young ones lets say 5 at around £4K a week, then say a core group of 14 at around £8K to £10K a week so lets call it £9K. Then there will likely be a few who are paid a little bit more say 4 around £12K then I'd guess say two on £20K for their "star status."  I make that a weekly bill of £234,000 and annually just over £12M. I'm guessing that SG and the Accountants will work out how much of a squad wage bill they can afford and work it backwards starting with who is already here and how much are they costing us then the difference is what NW will have to negotiate and wriggle with. There are all sorts of permutations that can be worked into that, he may prefer to gamble with padding the squad with say the likes of Wood, Wing, Spence and Coulson (or of that ilk rather than them specifically) so he can offer a bit more elsewhere, for example a Striker who is mobile and even scores goals may be deemed value for money in committing a huge dollop of that budget to. Just as an aside to me Fletcher doesn't fit that billing. Loans where parent clubs pay a big chunk will likely have to be well executed in getting the likes of Kebano back in on loan but the waiting and the chance that you don't get who you really want could leave us short. The £12M figure is just a nominal one, it could be £15M or indeed could be much lower depending upon the real financial landscape rather than the one we are hoping for. One or two of the younger players or lower paid players are likely on less than £4K or £9K so there may be more flexibility. When it comes to the names being bandied about like Bolasie I'm guessing that he will occupy one of the top salary berths if he came permanently. Like Fletcher I'm not sure that represents a good return on that level of investment, the question then becomes if not them then who?
