  4. Fraserburgh Mid Season Update

    This season has been a little disappointing tbh, but I didn't expect much, so I can't blame the players for that. Also I'll switch up my tactics for the second half of the season, and see if that has an effect (Going back to the East Stirlingshire one that got me to the Premier League)

    Hardly our best player, but leads in assists for the club, and you can tell his presence means a lot on the pitch (5 games without him, 0 wins... Coincidence?)

    David has great determination, as well as other mentals, so he should do a job. Dave has decent mentals, as well as physicals and both aren't technically gifted at all (as you'd expect at this level)

    Oh, and one more thing. The youth challenge won't be happening with this team (maybe I could do under 23s or something, we'll see) for the simple reason that I don't have enough time to scout the players anymore, and anyway, it'll mean more updates quicker

    Youth intake to come.

    They came in with time... I'm in the year 2031 so a lot of different teams are there. Same reason Formartine and Wick are there.

    ​A successful intake, we had more decent players but these two were the best. Some exciting prospects, Kyle has Championship potential.

    Thanks Youth challenges can be frustrating but so rewarding at times, and something different from playing normally.

    So, were we able to rebuild some form for 2031?

    Yes! Some interesting facts about 2031 so far, we've only had one away win and only two home losses.

    So where did this leave us in the league?

    A solid 5th position, shame we couldn't hit playoffs, but from 8th on matchday 20 to 5th by 36 is still a decent turnaround and shows how much influence the signings had

    Nothing major here by us, couple things here and there but really nothing

    Also, have a look at the player who dominated goals scored and average rating

    He's awful! How does he do it? Half decent physicals to be fair

    Missed a few games but when he played he was our star. Good yound prospect, hopefully we'll see him in the future.

    Didn't get a high average rating somehow, but was so influencial it'd be impossible not to give it to him.

  11. 2031-2032 Pre Season

    This is the make or break season. Our finances are slipping and I fear another season in this league could send them too low

    We HAVE to get promoted.

    So what new talent are we working with to achieve these goals?

    Yeah, I wished for much better going into the window, Murray is our first team goalkeeper, which is hard to take in considering he's awful. Reid is decent, can hopefully play a role for us this season, adds to the skillful pick of CM's we have

    A fairly succesful friendly period, most of which was for raising money, the rest for morale

    Much better odds than last years 40-1, recently relegated Elgin are favorites for the title

  12. Can you check for a player for me? his name is Liam Paterson.. i want to check to see how he turned out as he is a mate of mine from school haha... he plays/played for Formartine

    Found him on a save I made with Ross County, will add him to my shortlist and see if anything happens with him

  16. Really good read, mate. Did something similar a couple of years back, also with the mighty East Stirlingshire - one of the most rewarding saves I've ever done. Keep up the good work though, you've got a good thing going.

    Cheers mate, can be tough at times but so rewarding when you achieve a huge goal. Hopefully I can repeat the success I've had with The Shire in Fraserburgh

  18. Mid Season Update

    So given how I said we needed promotion, are our squad living up to what was expected of them?

    WOW! We came of the mark by far the best, had a little slip up, but recovered and started to put this division to shame. The best part has been the tiny amount of boring games there's been, I can only think of one. Surprisingly Morton are second and Elgin are 9th, but if I'm top, I don't care

    Warning while I can, if you're a Dundee fan, look away... NOW

    We beat Dundee twice! A team two divisions above us! It gives something to look at so you can ignore the fact that we lost to East Fife in the most important cup, but whatever

    No transfers, and given that I'm ?292 over my wage budget I doubt there will be

    ​End of season update to come. Can we hang onto the title?



  19. Doing good so far, keep going with this!

  21. Dude, can you teach me how to be this good? haha

  22. Would anyone like to see me keep going with Fraserburgh, but also have another save with East Stirling (with same players and everything for both teams, don't worry) and on one save I'll try to dominate Europe with The Shire and on the other I'll bring Fraserburgh up to beat East Stirling?

  23. You should continue with this save as a main one but maybe the shire one as a background one like an update twice a week or something?

    Yeah I think I'll go with that, should be easier to get Fraserburgh updates out, and I'll keep East Stirling for every so often and I won't go in as much depth on it. Cheers for the feedback.
