Forgotten Bradford City
After long time without playing FM 11 I started new season... I am currently in hospital and out of boredom began to play with no more or less forgotten Bradford City who play in npower League 2. I know that all football fans know about old Bradford... Club who was founded 1903. playing on Valley Parade. The best football year's in club's history was from season 1908/1909 till season 1920/1921 wenn they were playing in english Premiership, After that, the collapsing Bradford City were struggling in Third Division North then in npower League 2 then npower league 1 after that in npower Championship and after 78 years they found them self again in top class football in English Premiership in season 1999/2000 wenn they finished 17th and saved them self from beign relegated but next season 2000/2001 was the season when they fell on their knees and finished on 20th place in English Premiership and beign relegated. Since then they were only one way for Bradford City and that way was down! Now they find them self in npower league 2, all forgotten about them about club so I was determinated to bring them back to English Premiership and to get old glory day's back at Valley Parade...
This story is not like my few story's, I've started this game becouse I said I was bored... I stop using Genie scout and thing's like that! Just wanted to play the game without any help from that cheat's!
To be honest with u im now in third season with Bradford City and kind start to like this careere of my at Bradford and wanted to share with u all.
BRADFORD CITY SEASON 2010/2011
First season i didnt play. I just got new player's to the club made tactic and went on holiday for most of that season, precisely 20.3.2011. I came back from holiday's and it surprise me what happened. Media predictions first year for us is 9th place in league 2!
And game goes like this:
I've bought 13 players from free list and one player for free from Eindhoven and loan 3 players.
Player's in squad were very poor so i needed big time reinforcment. Like u see some strange players are on that list but would like to turn attention to some of them.
First of all player's is my favourite:
Player who I found first time and he wanted to sign contract with me in npower league 2. And what was the best he join us for free from FC Eindhoven. He look's really as usual player's but not for our league then for better leagues. He was in first season our captain, our best player ( on stats i mean). Lad is left winger I played him as left side midfielder and he produce only magic there scoring 7 goals and 15 assists in 32 game's with average rating 7.13.
Second one is:
Young forward who was left alone! Without club he was really tempting to me, so I signed him from free list. Lad does not look like some ok player but behind those stats is hiden beast hungry for goals!!! I gave him 2k for scored goal and he really earned alot, in his first season for us he scored 41 goal's (Yes u heard me right 41 fucking goals!!! ) with 13 assists and average rating of 7.79.
Third one is:
Young Algerian (second nationality French) defender who I never heard of but he was looking good so why not try him out. Really impresed me whole season at back and at front playing for us 40 games with add of 8 goal's and 1 assist with average rating 7.26.
Usual 4-4-2 with maybe some changes around side midfielders, sometimes I play them as winger's sometimes as side midfielder's. All other positions are usual and random in 4-4-2 tactic's.
Philosophy is very fluid as I like that ball goes around and that all player's contribute to game and also that forward's goes into defence and also that defenders can join in attack's.
npower league 2 table:
We were first in league, first I was like is this really truth becouse I signed 13 player's and put them in first line and went on holiday till 20.3.2011. wenn I got back they were on first place and 7 games to go till end of season. Like I said my problem was that I lose passion for FM11 and didnt play for about 5-6 months FM so I just didnt want to go from first to last game in some pish league But wenn I seen that we are at first place with only 7 games to go till end i continue it and won 6 games from 7 and finished first.
