    Wondering Into The Unknown - A Bristol City Story

    A small bit about myself first shall I, I as this story would pan out as being in the unknown of me being a Bristol Rovers fan, but for nearly every version of football manager, I always have a knack of doing a save with Rovers arch rivals Bristol City, so for FM17 I thought I'll return to FM-Base and make a story or more like how I'll do it a play a month and post it on here and give my thoughts on how the save is going month by month, also updates on transfers in and out would come into it as well.

    So that's my plan, let see what happens, the first post will be some things to start it off just what I'll call minor things.

    Attachment 1089767

    A Gashead in unknown territory of south Bristol.

    Lee Johnson leaves Bristol City after saving them from relegation in the 2015/2016 season, a source at the club says they already got a brilliant young manager coming into the club as the new manager.

    Grant Thame is the new manager of Bristol City, the 23 year old begins his career in a manner of unknown as he supports the team he now manages arch rivals.

    Grant Thame: "I'm happy that the club sees what potential I have as a manager, knowing my background in who I support, I promise the fans of the club that the future starts now, and now is going to be glorious."

    Next post will be how I got on in July with friendlies and most important my tactic that I'll be using.

    July 2016

    Tactic

    I thought I'll share the tactic I'll use first, it's my own creation, I created it when I was facing my brother in the fantasy draft mode, it worked so well so I thought I'll use it for the story, I've tested it with Ajax and it works well.

    Attachment 1089772

    A 4-5-1 sounds simple but pair it with the right player instructions and team instructions, it's a different kettle of fish.

    Attachment 1089773

    As I said a different kettle of fish, this is all about having possession. Quite a fair bit of it.

    I won't put the players instructions on as there are too many to print screen for it, but I can add opposition instructions are deadly for it as well, but I'll tell you, tight marking is always, closing down is always, tackling is hard, and for show onto foot, that is weaker foot.

    That's enough about the tactic, I'll show you who I say are my key players for the season.

    Aden Flint
    Attachment 1089774

    Lee Tomlin

    Attachment 1089775

    Tammy Abraham

    Attachment 1089776

    These 3 players are key, a strong CB in Aden Flint, the animal in AM Lee Tomlin, in the person I like to call cheat code up front Tammy Abraham.

    Now friendlies I had 4 games lets look at the results.

    Attachment 1089777

    3 wins and a draw, how about a look at average possession of them friendlies.

    65.75% possession, which is a lot if you ask me, my tactic does what I want it to do, and that is to dominate possession.

    August is next and the end of the transfer window, I got to post my current signing in the next post, so for now, that's a wrap.

    Bristol City signs two from Scotland Premier League.

    The first signing the club has made was striker Louis Moult from Motherwell for 800k, a two-year deal for 5.5k wage per week.

    Attachment 1089779

    The signing of Louis Moult will give Tammy Abraham and Gustav Engvall a challenge for the starting place.

    Peter Pawlett comes in as the second new signing for Bristol City. Pawlett can play in either RM or AMC for the tactic.

    Attachment 1089780

    475k is what Bristol City paid Aberdeen for Pawlett, he's been given a two-year deal on 6k per week wage.

    Next update will be the end of august which I just got to finish playing through, shouldn't be long I got a skin which can instant result the matches.

    6th in the league, is overachieving for me, but that where the team is just quite good, 4 wins in the month justified that.

    Key Player of the month

    Joe Bryan

    Attachment 1089949

    Been solid on the left side of midfield for the 4 wins, played in cm for the Barnsley game, still gave a good showing, so he takes the award for October just ahead of Jamie Paterson and Scott Golbourne.

    October Average Possession

    68.2%, best yet in an awesome month for the club, as I said the future is now, and now is glorious, and glorious is what I mean by high possession.

    The Icelandic rock in central defense is the stand out of the 3 games, no one could match him so he's the winner of November.

    We could indeed, I'm actually enjoying a save without the usage of the in-game editor as I disabled it for this save, to have it more realistic. I'm just currently finishing off the transfer window deadline day, so update should be soon.

    Looking more towards staying in the premier league than getting cups, but if a good cup run is there, and a final is in sight, we may take it, but premier league staying is the aim, get the money in from staying in the premier league.

I'm end of September and doing pretty good 10th in the league. In terms of possession I'm absolutely destroying teams. A lot of games I'm finishing with 65% witch will soon turn into goals.
