It has been too long so how else to better treat you than some FA Cup action. With lower league cup heroes capturing respect such as Bradford and Oldham in the Capital One Cup and FA Cup respectively, it is time to see if my Lincoln City has what it takes to try and achieve something similar and it starts with the 1st Round of the FA Cup against Rochdale. The winner is rewarded with a 2nd Round tie against Hartlepool.
To see how I do here is your link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP-ln803ciA

After November's shock victory for Lincoln over League 2 Rochdale in the FA Cup 1st Round, I simply had to make December's game the 2nd Round fixture vs Hartlepool. A shorter episode than normal, this episode is purely to see if my team can battle it out with players from League One. Episode 22 will feature simply the gameplay and my reaction at the end. I hope you can check it out. Episode 23 will feature my January Summary of the team, who is letting me down, who is doing well and my potential plans if any for the Transfer Market.

But until then here is that FA Cup game: Football Manager 2013: Part 22 - FA Cup 2nd Round vs Hartlepool - YouTube

Hello everyone and welcome back to my thread if you have visited before and welcome none the less if you are new.
I'm continuing my story and it is now the start of January. With very little in the bank to spend, I have decided instead of looking at potential transfers to help me for the 2nd half of the season, I will do a squad summary to look more in depth at how everyone is doing. I look into who is performing the best and can't be moved form the first team, who is scoring the goal, getting the assists and the highest match ratings. I also evaluate those who maybe need a few games for me to get a better impression of and finally who is already looking like dead weight.
This is wrapped up by a derby match against Lincoln's rivals Grimsby. Victory will give us a league double over them and put us in a great position leading up to our FA Cup 3rd round game against MK Dons.
So here is the link: Football Manager 2013: Part 23 - Mid Season Summary & Rival Derby vs Grimsby - YouTube

So it may be overshadowing our great progress in the Blue Sqaure Bet Premier but the excitement of the FA Cup cannot be ignored. So after great success in beating the odds against Rochdale and Hartlepool, my tired squad must do battle once more against an even tougher side in MK Dons. A top League 1 club so damage limitation is the main agenda. By playing 2 up front though you never know . . .
However, with so many games played in recent months its become a case of playing the fittest rather than the strongest team. The income will be invaluable to Linocln City next season and as one of the very few non league teams remaining my team can be very proud of their efforts so far. So for one last push at glory I bring you the FA Cup 3rd:

Lincoln City are the only remaining Blue Square Bet team left in the FA Cup. So the lowest ranked team is rewarded with a trip to Premier League West Brom. Our only advantage is that West Brom have lost the their last 4 games in a row so if we perform we have a chance. With Bagayoko & Cort up front together, Lincoln have done wonders in the FA Cup so here is the 4th round.
Please leave comments for any game mechanics you may want me to look into in future episodes before the season's end:

So all of the FA Cup madness has passed which means Lincoln can now focus on the league. There will probably only be a couple more episodes left of this season and hopefully we will be on the right side of the automatic promotion spot. We are fighting with Stockport for the title and trail in points but have games in hand.
I spend this episode discussing how many point I think we will need to win the league, whether it is realistic with the squad growing ever more tired with more and more games being played.
I also recently made a webcam video to discuss ideas for how to format my adventure next season and onward so I would really appreciate if you can leave feedback about the ideas I have in mind as well as any ideas you may have yourselves.

Hello everyone. There are only a few episodes left of this season now. This first one is a compilation of highlights from Lincoln's efforts in the FA Trophy. It is a shorter than usual video featuring goals and key points in the game that I hope you will find interesting. I have also used a few images of the Lincoln City stadium to try and brighten up the video which I also hope you will enjoy. This should be followed by an episode or two of League action showing you where we end up come the last day of the conventional season.

I want to thank any of you who commented on my Football Manager plans video. The feedback from that seemed very positive so from next season I will be attempting to bring you a press conference style videos with match of the day style comment over gameplay highlight. I have new editing software so I look forward to giving it a go and making the most entertaining stuff I can.

But to start with here is Part 27: Football Manager 2013: Part 27 - FA Trophy Highlights - YouTube

Hello everyone I left a bit of a gap between episodes 27 & 28 so to give plenty of opportunity for people so watch the previous and hopefully be excited bout the outcome. It was also a great time for me to start a new series making comments on real life football stories so if anyone was curious those are the reasons why I've not been quite as fast as normal in uploading.

However, back on topic I happily present you the second and final part of Lincoln City's highlights in the FA Trophy. The audio for the first game is a bit crackly so feel free to skip to 2mins 56secs if it get too annoying where usual audio resumes (I don't know why my mic has a tantrum every now and again).

I hope you enjoy how I have put the highlights together and I would enjoy feedback on how to improve for future reference.
I think it was a very exciting competition and I hope I have given that feeling in the videos I have presented.
There will be one or two league games after this episode in an attempt to win promotion and end season 2.
But in the mean time here are those highlights and the last cup content for this season. Its episode 28: Football Manager 2013: Part 28 - FA Trophy Highlights #2 - YouTube

It seems every time I post something new on here, I have to say sorry for my lack or regular updates and today is no different. However, this time I would like to make a special post as I have finally finished the regular season with Lincoln City. The video begins with 2 games remaining. Lincoln City & Stockport are the only teams left chasing the titled and are locked at 91 points. Lincoln boasts a commanding goal difference meaning we have to simply match or better Stockport's results to win the title and promotion to the Football League. But it's never that easy is it??

Ive decided to have a second try at a Sky Sports news style Football Manager episode. So with Lincoln City now back in the Football League I present a review of August with the first 5 games of the season against: AFC Wimbledon, Wycombe, Leyton Orient, Cheltenham & Torquay United. There is also Carling Cup action against Blackburn Rovers.

I present another Football Manager episode in a News Conference style format. I review Lincoln City’s progress during September (in game) and reveal a couple of changes to the channel and how content will be revealed.
I will be doing the news conference style every week or every other week but game highlights will now be full daily live games. Feedback is greatly appreciated on news features to bring into the news format to make it more fun for everyone.

Ok so I've uploaded a recent sky sports new related video but here is a more informative video.
I think i'm a little slow to start but I hope my approach will interest some of you and give you some pointers/advice which you can benefit from.
Its part 33 where I update Lincoln's team and individual training: FM 2013: Part 33 - Team & Individual Training - YouTube

Ok so here we go trying to do daily Football Manager 2013 videos.
Starting with Lincoln vs Aldershot Town, an entertaining game with Turner impressing on goal. I hope you will find useful my analysis of teams before a game by looking at their table position and recent form to determine how to approach the opposition. Also I am now looking at my next opposition at the end of every video looking at their recent form etc to determine how to set match preparation training before each game.

Ok so continuing with making daily videos, I am taking on Exeter after the good win against Aldershot, I have a look at Exeter's recent form and conclude that a slightly weakened side could still pull through with points, however, with three men injured and three still to return from playing with the under 21's, Lincoln has a skeleton squad to choose from.

Ok so with the same paper thin squad Lincoln have to take on Dag & Red. I tried very hard to find out what date my players would return but couldn't find it so if anyone knows please inform me because it could be really useful in future.

But yes with webster injured in the last game ive had to move henderson to the left and bore on the right. Couldn't really afford any injuries so i was hoping for a safe game rather than a result. Just a teaser I'm quite looking forward to tomorrow's game. The language is quite . . . colourful ;) FM 2013: Part 36 - Lincoln City vs Dag & Red - YouTube

Ok everyone I think I need your help, just released my latest video and it goes sooooooo wrong. I have my players back who were away on under-21 international duty, it was brilliant having a stronger squad to choose from but I cannot understand why we were beaten so badly. If any of you have advice on what happened please let me know as I would greatly appreciate it.

From an entertainment perspective, if you like someone raging and swearing you will love this!

Ok so I've managed to produce a much better display today which has left me curious as to how much effect team talks really do have on the squad before a game. Ive always assumed it plays a part but I now fully believe that your team talks hold deep consequences for the game you are about to go into. If any of you know what else I may have done differently between this game and previously then please let me know. Hopefully back to winning ways with Lincoln:
