Monthly Review - November

A mix and match month in November and there's no other way to put it. Our love affair with the FA Cup last season will not carry on past the first round again as we find ourselves out on penalties to Colchester. We were very unlucky not to go through here, with Colchester missing the all important penalty to win the tie we need Whitfield to score and level it to sudden death.

Of course, he missed. Out of the cup at the first hurdle. Not impressed and I feel like we should've done a lot better as in both games I felt we were the much better team.

It looks like more of a rough month than it was because of all the cup games we played. The league held two losses and two wins for us which all things considered isn't totally terrible. The plymouth result was a tough one to take.

Dagenham was even tougher. We were 3-0 up in 30 minutes thanks to a Layton Stewart hattrick but as is the way of FM Dagenham got one, and then two.

90th minute, three. Livid. Dominated the whole game, 3-0 up. Basically 3 points nailed to the table and I can't believe we've lost out. There's something seriously wrong with this defence and it just makes no sense to me what is that's going wrong.

We lost 2-0 to Luton in the trophy but as you're all aware we played a heavily rotated squad in favour of getting results in the league and it doesn't really bother me right now. Maybe next season.

A fairly short update due to the fact you've all seen this league table in the last update. Yes, because I'm an idiot I managed to mix October and November up, I've now rectified this in both posts!

Something to bring to your attention though. I'll say nothing more and leave it for you guys to make of it what you will. Let's see how this develops.
I am loving this story

Your doing ace and I think promotion could be possible
A tough month and a very disappointing FA Cup campaign in comparison to last years excellence. Despite this, still top three and promotion is still there for the taking. Think that Dagenham game might just of been FM's revenge for the Cambridge win earlier in the season ;)
Not the best of months here, particularly for an automatic promotion chasing side. Hopefully it doesn't affect confidence too much!

fucking livid
Talk about coming to an abrupt stop... :(

The End

Taken a couple hours to calm down before I wrote this, my only save file has corrupted and at the time I was absolutely raging. Still extremely gutted as I felt it was probably the best Lower league save ive had on any fm.

Still though, I learnt a lot, and I will be back. Gotta think about what I'm gunna do and who to be because it won't be a Torquay return.

Really sorry to those that were enjoying it was really enjoyable to write through this thread and I'm gutted to have to end it here but when one door closes another opens...
Gutted. A really good story mate that you have managed to produce great updates at a rapid pace. Looking forward to seeing who your next challenge is with!
