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….”
Folks – another new series that I am bringing to you! I found this guy on Facebook and I love the way he writes up his saves, so I am pleased to share them with you. Look inside, it is more than just words… Continue reading “#FM15 #GettingStraightToThePoint – A Europa Point story by @The_Away_Days”
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. Continue reading “#FM15 #ClaptonCorner & #Strikerless – I love the sound of silverware”
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?”
Didn’t Sheffield United run it close last night? It was nearly yet another cup upset, mainly down to two well taken goals by an unknown 18-year-old plucked out of non-league, Che Adams. Continue reading “#FM15 #RealLifeFM – Che Adams, who is he?”
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.
