Welcome back to #ClaptonCorner & #Strikerless folks and I have just finished season four with the mighty Tons. What a season, what a season. Continue reading “#FM15 #ClaptonCorner & #Strikerless – nothing beats pinching it back on the last day….”
Hello folks, welcome back to #ClaptonCorner which is going so damn well it is stopping me from writing the bloody book! I love Johnny Cooper, I love CM99/00, but when I have a save like this going like it is going I cannot put it down. I am writing, today, 1st Jan 2018 and I felt it was an appropriate time to bring you up to speed on season four. Continue reading “#FM15 #ClaptonCorner & #Strikerless – going like the clappers!”
Alright guys, something a bit different for next week or so as #TheJenaJourney is put to one side for a while. There are two reasons for this; Firstly it was doing my head in and I am on the verge of resigning and ending the save. Secondly, the time it takes to write up five matches a day in my style is time that I need to invest in writing the third “Johnny Cooper, Championship Manager” book which I am hoping to launch in March.

Alright folks, not the catchiest of titles I have to admit but I thought I would give you a quick update of my Clapton FC save that started last year. Continue reading “#FM15 #ClaptonCorner – how on earth has Strikerless worked so well?”
Folks – following public pressure in some Facebook groups, I have been asked to post my #JenaJourney story to my blog each day. Sadly, this means that for the time being the Clapton Corner blog will take a back seat. Continue reading “#FM15 Clapton Corner Update”
Welcome back folks, and welcome back to my FM15 Clapton Corner save. I have decided to change the design of the blog to hopefully make it a little easier to navigate, let me know if you like it. It has been a while since I have been anywhere near this, having thrown my toys out of the pram before Christmas as we had lost a couple of games. For those of you joining me for the first time, this part of my blog is about the challenge I set myself, taking Clapton FC (one of the oldest “amateur” clubs in England and former winners of the FA Amateur Cup) to the Football League, in an ideal situation, playing a brand of football that is supposed to be impossible in the lower leagues – @merryguido’s Strikerless.
Happy New FM15 Year! I haven’t played my Clapton save for a few days as I have been letting the blogs I had written in advance catch up. We are now very much back in real time, and I am genuinely excited about pushing The Tons forward in the remainder of the 2015/16 season. Offline, I have been looking at ways that I can tweak the Strikerless formation that we are using and seeing if there is anyway I can tighten up a touch defensively, whilst losing none of our attacking brilliance – and I think I may have done, so we shall see how it pans out this month.
