So, as with many managers in the FM16 community like to do I love to start with a team from lower leagues, weather thats using a database with the entire english 24 lvls available or just the regular 5 levels.

In this instance I started with just the 5 levels and chose to Manage Torquay. Thankfully due to everybody helping provide information online about the best free agents, scounts, coaches and wonderkids I played my first season in the Vanarama National League and finished in 11th place.

I downloaded similar tactics to what Juventus use which is a 5-3-2 DM. And sucessfully completed my 2nd season losing only one game to Wrexham away in an epic 3-0 defeat. I completed the season with an astonishing 119pts on the table beating 2nd place by 26pts.

My key goal scorer Rhys Vahid, a Welsh/Israeli youngster who I believe to be an automatic creation by the game, scored a whopping 44goals in 49aps in all competitions including a stunning 26yard strike in a 4-1 deafeat to Southampton in the FA Cup

As it stands at current I am 5th in the SkyBet league 2, 7 games into my 3rd season. And the board made the decision to build Torquay Stadium with a capacity of 14500.

As I continue with this career I will add more to this blog :)
