Interesting first season there, could've been so different with an extra few wins and some luck in the EFL Cup final. Zlatan was worth a punt.

`Ah that's a tough place to finish but I'm sure you'll be back next season with a bang! IF the board offer you that contract...

Best of luck mate!

Indeed it is. We didn't really deserve promotion to be honest, our dreadful festive period form cost us. Appreciate your comment, as always!

Current Team: Lisburn Distillery (Premier Intermediate League) | Honours With Them: 0
This Season's (2019-20) Expectation(s): Reach Play-offs
Overall Team #: 1 | Career Honours: 0

Update: End Of The 2019/20 Season
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b4/1D_line.svg/290px-1D_line.svg.png
I've belatedly reached the end of the 2019/20 season with Lisburn Distillery, having had to get through a bugged out schedule which made us schedule seven friendly matches to fill the gap between our penultimate match of the campaign and the final game of the season.

I usually take control of every match, even friendlies, but this time I delegated to my coaching staff; playing friendlies when there shouldn't be friendlies is extremely boring and demotivating. Added to the fact our season was likely already over, given second place Bangor had a game in hand and could end our promotion hopes before the competition's final day.


arguably unimportant editorial note: I'm changing the way I do my posts for this. I enjoy doing it the way I have been doing, especially with the detail it included, but I want to make more progress in the game itself; so want to spend most of my time with Football Manager in-game. The reasoning is that I don't enjoy FM as much as I used to but still like sharing my career(s) on here. So by doing an update every six months, I can fly through the game quicker; rather than loading/typing up/shutting down etc every game month.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b4/1D_line.svg/290px-1D_line.svg.png
Firstly, here's how the exhibition matches went.

https://i.imgur.com/AMCgpSD.png

My coaching team did a good job, securing seven straight victories over lower league Northern Irish outfits in Abbey Villa, Brantwood, Maghera Strollers, Banbridge Rangers, Coagh United, Albert Foundry and Rosario.

On the day of that Albert Foundry encounter, the rest of the league (bar Portstewart) caught up on games played. Tobermore United actually lost to Banbridge Town, but Bangor - the team we needed to lose - produced and beat Newington on home turf. Therefore, our season ended two weeks before our final Premier Intermediate League commitment versus Armagh City.

https://i.imgur.com/61ofXH2.png

As you can see below, we eased past Armagh City 3-1 which secures us a merited third place finish ahead of Moyola Park. Above us, Bangor are promoted to the Championship as title winners while Tobermore United take the play-off spot; where they'll meet Ballyclare Comrades.

https://i.imgur.com/ySQb9Io.png
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b4/1D_line.svg/290px-1D_line.svg.png

So, that is 2019/20 done and dusted. It wasn't to be for me and Lisburn Distillery this season, but we'll be back next campaign to hopefully correct our wrongs and get Championship football at New Grosvenor Stadium for 2021/22.

That's the plan, at least. The board have shown no sign of offering me a new contract yet, which is a little worrying given it ends in June. My manager rating, which you can see behind the 'spoilers' below along with other screenshots, is 'C' but they believe we are on course for promotion next season. I'm hopeful they'll offer me a new deal.

What amazes me this season is that we are easily the stand out side from the usual top 6 for being absolutely shocking so far, yet we're only 2pts behind Man Utd and 4 behind Tottenham.

As a United fan, I can safely say we run you guys close for that honour. United's wins against the top teams makes it look better than it has been, absolutely diabolical against the 'lesser' teams; lost to four of the bottom nine (+ Newcastle when they were down there), drawing with four of the other five!

(only just seen this, I'm still - even after a few years - only just finding different threads on here... )
I'm definitely interested! Only reason I always forget about/stop participating is if I'm not playing the actual game itself - if I'm playing it, I'll certainly be taking part with everyone.

I'd love to but no way we could afford him I don't reckon, plus our strikers ain't actually too bad. New keeper is sorted now I'm looking for a right wing back and maybe a central midfielder, was given a budget of £67m and made a few sales but only receiving 60% of the funds ffs.

Are the Glazers, Woodward & Co still there?

That's a shame, the game does seem to have more bugs than usual this year; or maybe I'm just noticing more myself.
Not sure about a solution, others might have one, but maybe just ride it out and hope it sorts itself out?

This.

It really is just being dragged out. Same with Fear The Walking Dead, great for the first two seasons now it's just effort to sit through and watch it.

Now you mention it, Rick staring into space does happen a lot

Over two years later, intrigued to see what you think of The Walking Dead now @Tarrantino @KEZ_7 (and anyone else, ofc)? I've always enjoyed it throughout, but since Angela Kang came in as showrunner for season nine it has been greatly received by critics; e.g. Rotten Tomatoes has S8 (2017-18) at 64% but S9/10 are both at 91%.

Its set to be tight at the end it seems! keep pushing mate!

Cheers, Dan! It might not be, unfortunately.

I actually didn't realise, in the midst of questioning the strange scheduling (which I've reported over at SI), that Bangor and Tobermore United still hold their games in hand (which they play two weeks (?) before the final day). Their games are not promising on our end:

Bangor (2nd) vs. Newington (11th)
Banbridge Town (10th) vs. Tobermore United (1st)

Of course, what Tobermore do doesn't really matter to us given they are out of reach but you'd expect Bangor to beat bottom of the table at home; though Newington did beat Tobermore recently and gave us a strong test so who knows.

Update 009: February 2020
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b4/1D_line.svg/290px-1D_line.svg.png
January ended on a positive, as we came out victorious in three straight fixtures in league and cup; which was a major improvement on our end to 2019, with that seven match winless streak. February would prove to be a massive month in 2019/20, as we played three of the last four Premier Intermediate League fixtures which included a huge encounter with promotion rivals Tobermore United. They'd also be a Irish Cup sixth round meeting with Cliftonville.

Here's how it all went:

Our Highest Rated Player: Johnny McCaw (NIR) - 8.3 | Our Position: 2/11 | Our Points Tally: 29pts | Our Streak: LDWWW

"Nervy match-up with bottom of the table Newington, partly due to the fact that they had beat Tobermore United at Seaview just a few matchdays ago. They almost gained the points over us too after Conal Burns put them ahead on 13mins, but thankfully goals from Johnny McCaw and Nick Beta (89th min!) snatched us the win. Crucial, but fortunate, three points."

Our Highest Rated Player: Timmy Clarke (NIR) - 7.1 | Our Position: - | Our Points Tally: - | Our Streak: DWWWL

"Gutting defeat to Premiership side Cliftonville in the Irish Cup sixth round, as Aaron Donnelly scored on 90mins to secure his side a place in the next round. So close to knocking out a big gun. They merited their victory, but we dug in tremendously and deserved extra time. Harsh way to exit the competition."

Our Highest Rated Player: Josh Doyle (NIR) - 6.9 | Our Position: 3/11 | Our Points Tally: 30pts | Our Streak: WWLLD

"Deary me. Do we even want promotion? Lacklustre tie with mid-table Annagh United, which would've seen our season over there and then if not for Bangor's defeat away to Moyola Park. The title is now officially out of reach, but a promotion play-off place is still available - but only just."

That table, given our messy form, makes for frustrating reading. Wins over Tobermore United and Annagh United would've seen us top of the standings, but instead we sit 3rd with just one fixture left to fulfil. 1st is between Tobermore and Bangor, who actually meet each other on the final day of the season - which is *checks notes* over a month away...

When it does arrive, it'll be a nail-biting final day. We will host 9th place Armagh City whilst the other two face-off. We sit 3pts behind Bangor and they hold a +5 goal difference (and +5 goals scored - the secondary deciding factor), so we will need ourselves to be on top form and/or help from Tobermore; who are going for the title, so won't (shouldn't) go easy on Bangor. I'm not confident, whatsoever. I just hope we do our bit, placing outside the top three would be a disgrace - to be frank.

Not bad this month, everyone like this @r96Skinner

Position is all I care for, so to be in 2nd at this stage is promising; just need some luck with our rivals' games in hand.

Nice work getting Champions League!
Are you interested in any of those jobs, should they come for you? I'd be biased towards United, but RB Leipzig would be very interesting.

I remember that goal well! Manucho was meant to be the next big thing!

Interesting concept for this save! Looking forward to seeing how you get on!

Manucho - Danny Welbeck - Dong Fangzhuo... what could've been!

We welcomed in 2020 with just four fixtures, three of which in the Premier Intermediate League and one in the Irish Cup. Our form has been hideous lately, as we went the whole month of December without an official victory; and hadn't scored in the latter two encounters. Would our form improve?

"Not a great start to the new year. Shoddy defeat at home to Dollingstown, Andrew Hamilton won it for them after netting a penalty on 8mins. Really, really dreadful."

Our Highest Rated Player: Barry Moore (NIR) & Dale McCreery - 7.3 | Our Position: - | Our Points Tally: - | Our Streak: LDDLD

"Another meeting with Dollingstown, this time in the Irish Cup fifth round. Just like in round four versus Banbridge Town, we managed to advance after winning the penalty shoot-out. It was a second straight poor performance, but our second straight victory on spot-kicks this season. Despite the bad form, we find ourselves in the Irish Cup sixth round - where we'll host Premiership outfit Cliftonville."

Our Highest Rated Player: Nick Beta (NIR) - 8.3 | Our Position: 3/11 | Our Points Tally: 23pts | Our Streak: DDLDW

"Three points! An actual win achieved! Amongst a flurry of tactical tweaks this month, one finally produced the goods as we defeated mid-table Moyola Park following goals from Kevin Braniff, Daire Rooney and Nick Beta. Our opponents did get one back, but we held on; despite losing two key players to injury. We also missed a penalty."

Our Highest Rated Player: Michael O'Hanlon (NIR) & Nick Beta (NIR) - 7.2 | Our Position: 2/11 | Our Points Tally: 26pts | Our Streak: DLDWW

"Have we turned a corner? Back-to-back wins out of nowhere, Nick Beta and Kevin Braniff scoring here for a 2-0 win away to Portstewart. This result actually takes us into 2nd, after Tobermore United shockingly lost away to Newington."

Overview:

We head into February in 2nd, which I don't quite know how we've managed to be honest... those two victories were massive. Hopes tempered slightly, given Bangor (3pts ahead) and Tobermore United (level on pts) have games in hand; as do Annagh United down in 4th. We can only do our job though, just four matches left to play - three in February then, rather strangely, the final fixture isn't played until April...
