The return of the Pompey story

View attachment 461015

Hello everyone this is the return of my Portsmouth story this time on
Football Manager 2014, last year some of you may remember my Portsmouth story where i one League 2 in my first season with Portsmouth and started off life in League 1 but it didn't last as long as i was hoping but maybe this year i can go that step further and get us back to the big time with help from the magnificent support of the Fratton faithful. I hope many of the people who followed my last Pompey story will following this one and maybe some newcomers.

I hope you enjoy and
PUP !

Key Players


'Super' Jed Wallace

View attachment 460956

Im expecting big things from Jed and hopefully he can guide us up the table and maybe up the leagues.


Andy Barcham
View attachment 460955

A pacey winger who im hoping will bang in a few goals and also get us a shed load of assists.

Pat Agyemang
View attachment 460954

His experience up top will be vital also his partner in crime Connolly will help us out a lot but there is a lot of competition for that striker spot; Pat, Connolly, Bird, Jervis and a few new signings.

Monthly Review

Overall i feel it was a good month considering it was my first month in charge and we put up a great fight vs a League 1 side, MK Dons only losing on penalties after taking 9 penalties each before crashing to a 8-7 defeat on spot-kicks. The result against Plymouth was poor but we thrashed both Torquay and Southend.

Table

View attachment 460460

So after 5 games into august we sit in a respectable 10th with Mansfield surprisingly topping the table after winning all 5 of there games.

Player Of The Month

Pat Agyemang

View attachment 460458

This beast claims the player of the month award after scoring 3 goals this month and getting 1 assist matching his goal tally for the whole of last season.

Hope you enjoyed and please comment what you think so far

I'm in 4th seasons with Portsmouth atm.The team has some amazing youth players Dan butler,Adam Webster, Ashley Harris,Jed Wallace are all ready for some first team action and progressed really well. Especially Dan Butler has been my first choice LB for 3 seasons in a row. Padovani actually played as a starter in L2 and rotation L1 well . N'Gala is not rated highly but somehow play very well too. Don't renew Painter contract when you already have Butler, not to mention he demands a bit too much.
Simon Ferry is the star of the team tho, sold him for 750k going in 4th season.

iFortunatus :maybe try to offload some dead weight? I did get a transfer kitty of 200k and 60k wage budget to work with the second season in L1. If you manage to stay afloat the first season in L1 tho, the 2nd season will be much better .

Will be following this topics. Loan and free transfer are always the way to go in LLM anw :) . Good luck

(edit coz of typo in name)

thanks for the advice, glad to hear from someone who is ahead of me, yes I've kept all the star players above, dan butler I didn't play much but I got rid of painter so he will be first choice. I also sold ferry for 300k just so I could get his wage back. god rid of a lot of players though it's good to know second season will get better though

Monthly Review

This month was a short month, only having 4 games winning 2 losing 1 and drawing 1. I was disappointed at our loss to Newport but what can you do. Also im pleased to announce that striker Wes Thomas of Bournemouth will be joining us on a permanent in January after agreeing a fee of 250k.

View attachment 460050
Hopefully Wes can help us score a few more goals as our strikers aren't scoring as much as i would like he had a spell on loan at Fratton Park last season scoring 3 goals in 6 games.


TABLE

View attachment 460049

So we have moved up one place to 9th and it is looking pretty tight so anything can happen, But our goal difference looks decent. However Mansfield are still flying high at the top of the league.

Player Of The Month


Jed Wallace

View attachment 460044

He may have only scored one goal this month and Bird got three but what a goal it was and he also managed to get three assists so that swung it for me.

---------------------------------

Hope you enjoyed and
Good Night

im shocked aswell i asked for more wages as i wanted ebanks-blake on a free and the board said no so like a month later i asked for a increased transfer budget and they gave me a million which i was delighted with but im sure the cash from my feeder club Man Utd helped but i wasnt expecting that much and then i decreased that so i had like 400k transfer and my wage would then be improved and thought i'd sign Thomas :)
