Truro City have appointed hollow101 as their new First team Manager, starting from this June.

The 39-year-old will be handed a one-year contract.

"I am really pleased to be given the opportunity to manage Truro and I am really looking forward to taking the club forwards over the coming years" he said.
So here we go.....................................................

First thing that struck me was the size of the squad, this was every player at the club, so I knew depth was an issue for certain. My long term plan is to play and attacking, high line, pressing style based on the 'Total Football' system of the Ajax/Netherlands teams of the 70's and adapting since by Barcelona, Arsenal etc. I also wanted to adopt the Ajax system of youth development put into place by Jack Reynolds and continuing into present day.
However I knew both of these things would have to come in time, with small steps at a time to achieve this, this seasons small step would be using formation(s) based around 4-3-3 and getting the team used to this, along with signing players in the areas required, which straight away meant tackling the shortage of strikers at the club.

As expected the backroom team was small, although after being introduced to the chairman and my assistant manager I was able to get the board to increase my coaches to 3 giving me some help in this area.

Lots of work to do for sure, but with the board only requiring the club to 'avoid relegation' it hopefully means I will have time to be able to implement everything I want to do and who knows perhaps thrive as the underdog.
I hope the legend that is Rory Fallon helps fire you to glory!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

End of Pre-Season arrives.......................................................

Well its been a busy few weeks, training to set up, press conferences, board meetings, transfers in and out and of course friendly matches. Its been a while since I have managed at this level (FM07 or 08 I think), it used to be the only way I would play FM, but then started playing an online saves with friends resulting in choosing English Prem/champ sides and then the last few years of FM I have gone with Wolverhampton Wanders, the club I have supported since I was 10 years old. For FM17 I decided I wanted a long term save again so decided to go into non-league once again.

Pre-season I felt went 'ok', managed to increase the squad depth with 4 more players in than out, reduced the wage bill by off loading several players on P/T contracts and stayed unbeaten in my friendly games, however I was aware that these games were mainly against teams we should have been beating. I had generally gone with these friendly's as they were local teams and used them mainly to build fitness, in terms of playing bigger teams I was limited due to location in the UK and the teams I could play would have cost funds to pay that we may or may not have recouped in ticket sales. Player recruitment wise I a little disappointed to not have strengthened as much as I would have liked, went through a few trial players but only wanted to sign players who would improve us and they were proving more difficult to find than I would have hoped - the good news of course was that with no transfer deadline we could keep looking and looking.
I hope the legend that is Rory Fallon helps fire you to glory!


Thanks @Suffolk Seasider for your kind words, hopefully it will be a successful time. Sadly Rory Fallon was a early casualty of my tenure, for 'non footballing reasons' he was on £400 pw as player/assistant manager (and whilst I thought he may score some goals i knew we would not be playing to his strengths) and so with a heavy heart we agreed a mutual contract termination - allowing me to bring in my own Assistant manager and free up a large amount of wage budget.
Good luck with this, good to see a few careers popping up early into fm17, hopefully we can keep you here posting! Busy pre season but a successful one at that!
