If you were on chat earlier you would of seen my Accrington team in 2025 where I had won the FA Cup (5) Capital One Cup (7) Champions League (1) Premier League (1) if not, it is here:

I hope to emulate my success on FIFA on FM. I will be using everything identical to how it started on FIFA e.g. the manager (JJ Lister) the budgets (25,000 TB 10,000 WB) the same squad, everything. So let's see how I actually did on FIFA:

Good luck
Really nice idea, this will be very interesting.

Lister announces 13 new signings

New Accrington Stanley manager JJ Lister has announced a total of 13, yes 13 new signings. "The last few seasons we haven't been achieving anything, all mid-table finishes and I felt it was necessary to have a full revamp of the current squad. I would like to thank Peter Marsden for trusting me with the money to revamp the squad as many people know I am inexperienced in management and have a lot to learn, but that will come in time." 3 players have come in on loan, these players are Jon Stewart (CA ), Nicholas Bignall (CA ) and Andy Bond (CA ) all the others are free agents, these players are: Denis Tsoumou (CA ), Hendricks Cakin (CA ), Sam Sodje (CA ), Marc Giraudon (CA ), Sebastien Robert (CA ), Jurgen Heinrichs (CA ), Joel Kouassi (CA ), Dimitrijus Guscinas (CA ), Florian Hube (CA ) and Trésor Kandol (CA ).
Good luck this will be very interesting :D
Awesome idea mate looking forward to this

August: Great month

What a great month, we were leading 2-0 against Sheffield Wednesday, then we totally messed it up but we're unbeaten in the league! The first league game was actually very close, we scored through Guscinas and then Jurgen Heinrichs got a silly sending off for a handball just outside the area. Then in the 59th minute Rotherham equalised but a Guscinas penalty hit the underside of the bar and in, it was a great penalty and an important goal for us and then the nail in the coffin came in the 81st minute when a Bignall shot rebounded to Tsoumou who put the ball in the back of the open goal. We were easily winning 3-0 against Plymouth with goals from new signing Peter Weatherson and a very nice own goal by Plymouth's Maxime Blanchard and then typical FM decided to allow Plymouth two soft goals but we held out for the 90 minutes. For a mid-table side like us it was a great result to get a draw with Dagenham and Redbridge with Nicholas Bignall getting our only goal.

Going into September we find ourselves 4th place.

We have also grabbed ourselves 3 new signings, Benjamin Lense, Filippo Carobbio and Peter Weatherson.

Really interesting idea, certainly never seen anyone do this before. Solid start, good luck! :D
Nice title, wonder who thought it up ;)

The '13 new signings' update seems a bit cramped. Try having a different paragraph for each signing's name and his CA/PA.

Good luck mate!
Some good results there JL00, keep it up and I agree with Glenn about the transfers update. Some great signings though.

The Season so far

What a season we have had so far! A MASSIVE 23 points ahead of 2nd place and there are three automatic promotion places! We entered September with a bad 3-2 loss to Rochdale with Nicholas Bignall and Dimitrijus Guscinas scoring our goals. We then drew to 2nd placed Gillingham with Pádraig Amond getting our goal in a 1-1 draw. Then came the most embarrassing losses to Wycombe as we lost 3-0 to them. We then started a HUGE winning streak with a 2-1 win against Northampton with Bignall and Guscinas getting our goals. We then played AFC Wimbledon which we won 2-0 with Guscinas and Pádraig Amond with our goals. We won 2-0 in our next game against Aldershot with Weatherson and Amond getting our goals. We then beat Burton Albion 4-1 with Weatherson getting a hat-trick and Guscinas with our goals. We then came up against Chesterfield with Weatherson and Guscinas with our goals. We then won 2-1 against Torquay United with loanees Andy Bond and Bignall with our goals. We then had a very tough game against League 1 side Crewe Alexandra, or so we thought it was going to be tough as we won an emphatic 5-0 with Amond getting a brace and Guscinas getting a hat-trick. We then went back to League 2 action against Southend United which we won 3-0 with Pádraig Amond getting two and Guscinas getting the other one. Then came an eventful 5-2 win against Morecambe, Guscinas and Amond got two and Bignall got the 5th. We then scraped a 1-0 win against Barnet with Peter Weatherson getting the win. We then played our 1st FA Cup game against Southend and won 2-0. We beat Fleetwood 2-1 and beat Oxford with a big scoreline of 4-0 with Amond and Bignall getting two goals. We then went on a string of 4 1-0 wins in a row against York, Bradford, Exeter and Cheltenham. We then lost 3-0 against Hartlepool in the 2nd round of the FA Cup. We then beat Bury, Rotherham, Port Vale and Plymouth 2-1, 2-0, 3-1 and 3-0. We then had a huge scoreline of 6-1 against Dagenham and Redbridge with Guscinas and Nicholas Bignall getting two and Andy Bond and Pádraig Amond getting one. We beat Rochdale 2-0 and then had a very entertaining game against Gillingham with Pádraig Amond with all 4 goals.

Glenn: Thanks for the title idea :D and thanks for the advice, I'll use it next time

TSO: Cheers, I'm pretty happy myself with them actually :P

New change at Accrington?
