Champion by Christmas should be your true aim as you clearly are destroying every team.
Nothing to complain about in those first few months! Hope you can keep it up and avoid the usual drop in form.
It's almost cruel what you are putting other teams through!


We get of to a great start this month off against Hartlepool United and we get off to a big win against the team sitting in 4th position and boy do we get a big win as Wootton plays out his skin and scores an impressive 4 goals. Next up we manage to score another 5 goals in the FA Cup 1st round as Wootton manages another 3 goals to add to his tally. We then manage two more good wins against Torquay and Yeovil before se get a rare blip on our league form as we throw away a 3 goal lead. We were 3-0 up after 17 minutes but after an injury to our Rb in the 2nd half it rocked us and Woking took advantage to get 4 goals. We bounce back with a massive win though in the FA Cup 2nd round as we manage to shock League 1 side Gillingham. In the 3rd round we will be travelling to play West Brom.



Justice All money will help us progress further so a FA Cup run is great.
ScottT FA cup has gone well so far but I think it will come to an end in the 3rd round.
Griffo The league is just far too easy this season.
OneMoreGame Would be great to get it all tied up early
Zed Firgers crossed we keep the points coming in and don't make it difficult for ourselves
Jack I'd much rather we're putting teams through it than being on the receiving end
And so the glorious unbeaten run comes to a close :( However, it seemingly hasn't affected the flow of your game with a win straight away against Gillingham. Let a new run commence :D

Breaking News

Tommie Hoban signs for Notts County until 2021

Former Watford Academy graduate signs for Notts County in a move that is seen as a major coup for the club. He last played for Aberdeen after joining on loan from Watford but sadly suffered a second anterior cruciate ligament injury of his career. He was limited to just 5 appearances for the club sadly. He brings a wealth of experience from the championship which can only help steady the clubs defence. Hoban has reportedly said that he is looking forward to putting his injury problems behind him and helping to take the club to the next level.

Jack Hopefully we can keep it going especially in the FA Cup as thats where the money is.

A surprise loss against lowly Woking but a tremendous victory against Gillingham putting you in the hat for the third round.

Another extraordinary signing in Hoban.
Unfortunate to finally see the unbeaten streak end but apart from that everything is going incredibly well. A nice little FA Cup run will boost the finances as well, great job.
Of all the teams to lose against... of course it is the team in the relegation zone haha


We have an excellent December as we have an unbeaten month in the league. There are to blips in the month though as we drop points against Barnet and Flyde. We still have a good lead at the top of the table though and thats all that matters. We also played in the first round of the Buildbae FA Trophy where we rotate the squad a bit to give other players a shot and we manage to progress into th 2nd round where we'll face Slough Town which we should be able to progress pass.




Not the message you want to see in a youth intake but at least there is a chance of a decent midfielder coming through but as we're advised I don't expect much

ScottT Hopefully we'll even be able to cash in on him at the end of the season if we need the cash.
TheLFCFan We are still in the black so far this season so long may it continue.
Griffo It always the same. They seem to give you the toughest games
Hoban is a quality signing for this level and it's a great improvement for a squad that is already performing well.
A glamour tie awaits against West Brom. Also, it's Fylde rather than Flyde ;)


In the league we have another strong month and its only a matter of time until the league is wrapped up as we take 10 points out of the 12 on offer. As long as we keep the results coming the we will get the title soon enough since we have a 21 point lead at the top of the table. We have also progressed to the next round of the Buildbase Trophy. Its a meaningless competition but who doesn't love a trophy so we're going after it. The big match of the month though was the FA Cup 3rd round where we travelled to face West Brom. They got two quick goals in the 24th and 26th minute which was enough to win them the tie. We got a consolation through Crawford in the 78th minute but we just couldn't find the second so that puts an end to our FA Cup run.



Jack He could be with us for years to come or we will most likely cash in on him to fund more improvements at the end of the season
ScottT Sadly it wasn't to be as we go out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round. Lets see if you can spot the next on when it arrives :P
You pushed West Brom more than I could have anticipated and the form elsewhere remains strong. Looking very good for promotion and an immediate return to the Football League.
A shame to head out of the FA Cup but form still continues in the league! Great work!
