Eight goals in one month and Fletcher doesn't get PotM :O

You're doing brilliantly in the league, now go get that promotion!


Hey guys, I have some bad news regarding this story that I am writing. For one reason or another, whenever I come across the date of 12th January 2019 in game my Football Manager program comes up with a 'crash dump' warning. Now I am sure that you are all familiar with this warning and the implications that comes with it and if I do not get this problem resolved it could be the end of one of my best stories yet, and I haven't even completed my main goal for the story yet.

I wanted to take Bradford Park Avenue all the way to the Premier League and definitely seemed on course to doing that, and potentially take them even further if possible. But I have re-run the game on numerous occasions and every time there has been no hope of resolving the issue.

This means that this thread will be on hold until I get my game running properly again and if any of you have any solutions I would love for you to come forward, either here or on private message to help me resolve this. I really hope I can get the game running properly, but if not you can expect another story from me in the future.

I will update you further on this in a few days time regarding the story's fate but right now it doesn't look too good.

Ahhh man this is not good at all! What is the warning though, i've never encountered things like this?
Hopefully you find a way to sort this issue out!
This is heart-breaking stuff, shame you don't have back-up's.


So it seems a short while after I posted the previous announcement about the crash dump I managed to go past the date I was stuck on. This of course means that I am delighted to announce that for the forseeable future, this story will carry onwards.

As many of you will have also seen, I have made a new story on Aarhus in Denmark. This was made as the aftermath of the crash dumps on my Bradford Park Avenue but it was always my intention to have another story running alongside this one. This means that I will be playing the Bradford PA save, meanwhile trying to build up the story on the Aarhus story.

Also a massive thanks to everyone who has helped me get the save sorted out and it's a true reflection of the amazing community we have here at FMScout.

Thank you all,
Woo I love that news
Brilliant news mate, cant wait for the next update :D

It's been a busy day for Adam Chabukiani over at Horsfall Stadium as the paperwork is completed that allows an exchange of players between Bradford PA and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Part-exchange deals are some of the hardest deals to complete in terms of paperwork due to the amount of activity going on around the deal - and this one is no different.

But Bradford Park Avenue fans will feel that they have got the good side of the deal as the club receives Wolves' Under-21 centre-back Tyias Browning in exchange for fellow centre-back Stephen Arthurworrey.

On top of this, Avenue will receive a fee of £40,000 for the exchange since Wolves approached them for the young centre-back.

This comes as refreshing news for Bradford fans who saw a devastating 5-0 destruction at the hands of Oldham Athletic.

Browning grew up in Liverpool and came through the Everton ranks alongside the likes of world-class defender John Stones and Brendan Galloway, who is playing for the Everton first-team of recent times.

Despite having high expectations due to the calibre of player he grew up with, it took him only two first team appearances at Goodison Park before he startled fans at Wolves when he joined for £450,000 in 2016. He lifted the Championship title and secured Wolves' long-awaited return to the top-flight the same season.

Despite a strong start to Premier League life the corresponding season, he has found himself lurking in the development teams more and more recently. He was placed on the club's unwanted list in December 2018 and Bradford Park Avenue saw their opportunity to pounce on the youngster.

Signing a contract until 2020, Browning will don the number 4 shirt over at the newly renovated Horsfall Stadium.

In other BPA-related transfer news, many bids have been rejected from foreign outfits for star striker Matthew Fletcher - who is currently away on international duty with Curtis Good. Second-choice keeper Myles Wright has been subject to a Championship bid, as have the likes of Ben Blackmore, Caner Dumlupinar and even up-and-coming star Tony Cooke.

However, the big rumour is that Adam Chabukiani is willing to break the club's unpretentious transfer record by signing Tyias Browning's ex-teammate at Goodison Park in the youthful right-back Mason Holgate.

In the biggest move so far in the transfer window, Irish left-back Anthony Breslin has left Horsfall Stadium after a three-year spell at the club.

Breslin has left West Yorkshire for a life down south in Watford for a fee that could potentially exceed £600,000.

The Irishman was one of Chabukiani's first-team mainstays throughout the 2016/17 National League promotion campaign at only 18 years of age.

Since then the 21-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength in the Football League and despite being kept out of the Bradford Park Avenue team for a lot of this season by new signing Aidan White, he has still maintained a very healthy value that knocks on the door of some of Bradford's biggest sales.

With Kenny Jackett branding him a 'fine young full-back', the rumours began circulating about a move to Vicarage Road, which has finally happened in the middle of this so far hectic transfer window.

With Watford languishing in 14th place in the Championship just two seasons after their relegation from the top-flight, Breslin could turn out to be a defensive success for the strugglers.

However it comes as big news for Bradford PA youngster Tony Cooke who has recently found his way into the first-team at Horsfall Stadium. With a lack of competition and Aidan White - who is currently out-of-favour with Chabukiani, this could be the start of a big awakening for the 17-year-old left-back.

It is also a big help for Bradford's finances who have been struggling due to the substantial fee that the club have had to pay for Tyias Browning's agent fees.

The money made off the back of Breslin will also help in the reported negotiations which are going on between Adam Chabukiani and Everton right-back Mason Holgate. The money involved in that deal could be a big decider for the 22-year-old.
Glad you are back up and running mate!
Great to see this back even if it was only a short hiatus! Great updates again mate although don't think anybody expects any different from you! :P
