    Feeder AFC (English Team)

    Hi, thanks for taking a look at my showcase!

    The team is currently at Level 2 and I will try to keep this thread updated regularly as the season progresses

    The history of Feeder AFC

    Feeder AFC was was brought in to the T11 International League system on March 25th 2013, taking over both the league position and squad of a previous team

    That team had been placed 7th in the league, some way from a title challenge, but the new team owners were determined to win the league - especially as the previous management had left the team with nothing else to fight for - and proved their desire by investing £3.2m into the club to allow immediate improvements to be made to the squad in the transfer market, followed by a further £1.6m after initial results looked promising

    An incredible run of 13 straight victories saw Feeder storm to 1st place and the league championship with two games remaining in the season. Promotion to Level 2, with the prospect of Champions League football and a shot at the Cup, has got everyone at Feeder AFC excited for the new season

    The owners are determined to continue their success in Feeder's first full season and have invested £6.4m to help improve the squad, which has proved to be more than enough

    Smart moves in the transfer market have seen the team improve from a starting value of around £6m to its current value of over £45m and the average quality from about 14 to 30, with Feeder beginning to establish their reputation for finding and developing young players

    Any comments or tips will be appreciated

    I know that the team lacks the ability to vary formation - as this is my first year in multiple competitions I've basically gone for the approach of having two interchangeable 11s playing a 4-4-2, although I have changed this to 3-5-2 and 4-3-3 as in my 1st season when injuries require it, when I'm trying to counter or if I'm chasing a game

    Also, my star players mostly don't have SA - so, should I shop for more players with SA, train the ones I have to get SA, or not worry about it?

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Also a quick mention for my three young star players in the making, who I'm hoping will be with me for the next few seasons at least - they make up 1/3 of the value of the squad between them

    James Watson

    Season 2 - the story so far

    A new season is underway, the first full season for Feeder AFC under its new ownership. Season objectives are to win the league and get as far as possible in the knock out competitions - chances look good in the CL as Feeder are the highest rated team in the competition but less good in the cup where most teams are at Level 4/5 and high quality

    Day 1,2 and 3

    The cup is where we start and Feeder played a superb opening game, against the far more experienced Oren FC who have had two seasons more to build their team. The teams are evenly matched in quality terms, but despite dominating possession we only managed a single goal lead to take to Israel

    A 1-0 defeat after a very close game in the return leg, the first under the new owners, and a tense period of extra time with no further goals means that Feeder's hopes of progression are left to the lottery of penalties

    Oren missed their first attempt, but French playmaker Zenadi misses Feeder's third to even things up. Kaplan, the impressive Oren DC, misses the fifth penalty for the home side leaving Feeder one kick from the next round - but it's put wide! Sudden death and Oren see their penalty saved by the keeper. The sixth man steps up for Feeder, this time there is no mistake and the penalty is slotted home - Feeder prevail and the season is off to a flying start

    Day 3 brought the start of the league season and the first ever Champions League game. A 1-0 win against Napoli put three early points on the board, but it was in the CL that Feeder provided a big surprise when welcoming Raphael FC of Brazil then promptly thrashing them, recording a massive 9-0 victory

    Spanish forward Andres Gretener gets 4 goals, with his strike partner Vitali Puzin of Russia and Englishman Sam Cook - the only player remaining from the first side put out by this management - both hitting two

    Day 4, 5 and 6

    Next up was another cup game against Leonora RMA of Albania, a Level 4 team who played in an unusual 3-2-4-1 that included two wingbacks behind a standard flat four across midfield

    Feeder played a 3-5-2 in an attempt to pack out the middle. At first this seemed to be working as within 10 minutes we were a goal and a man up - our new ML, Chomchaipon of Thailand, scoring the opener and the opposition losing a CM to two quick bookings. But despite this, and Feeder having the majority of possession, Leonora made more chances and came back with two second half goals to win 1-2

    A 5-1 win away at Iwona FC of Singapore later the same day helped to ease the feeling of disappointment. That was followed by a 2-0 home win against Arrancacepas of Spain before a shock defeat at English side inkypoolutd fc in the CL, where our underperforming strikers managed to hit the target with just 3 of their 13 attempts at goal

    Day 6 saw a 4-0 win at Derudaf FC of Denmark, featuring a hat-trick from Argentinian DMR/MR Hernan Garcia, and the crucial return game against Leonora

    Feeder revert to their familiar 4-4-2 and secure an excellent 3-0 victory to progress to the next round. Nerves were settled after an early Zenadi goal, with two more coming quickly either side of half time - Colombian ML Enrique Cardona setting up the first and putting the second in himself

    Day 7 and 8

    Confidence is running through the side now and when Danish team Morfar FC come to town the next day they are smashed off the park, a record 12-0 victory being recorded. Chomchaipon grabs a hat-trick but the star of the show is Romanian MC Marius Panzaru, who bags four himself and assists two more

    A 4-1 win at Bonn United of Germany in the CL, another 4-1 win at Daimjo from Hungary in the cup and a 3-0 win at Giuseppe FC of Italy, one of two identically named teams in the league, keeps the run of form going as the squad nears completion for the season

    The owners make a small investment to reward the good start to the season, meaning a few transfers can be made - although some players also have to be sold to balance both the books and the squad. Notable new players include Jesper Demirel, a 19 year old Dutch DC, and Arljind Andreoli, an 18 year old Swiss who can cover both MR and DMR

    Day 9 and 10

    Feeder complete an easy 8-1 win at Sao Paulo, a new club record, before a 3-2 friendly win against Try Hard FC from England decimates the fitness of the team prior to a key game in the CL. A scrappy 1-0 home win against a team with a 1-on-1 specialist keeper who plays a 9 is good enough, as Bonn United are once again defeated

    Daimjo come to Peterborough for the 2nd leg of the cup game, again playing their lop-sided 3N-1W-3N-1W-2 formation that includes a left wing back and a left winger but no players covering the right. Despite this, and Feeder's attempts to exploit the space on their left wing, the Hungarians take the lead midway through the first half and it needs a quick equaliser and a late winner to see out the fixture

    A 3-1 win at home against Rodrigo FC from Uruguay later in the day is notable for the two strikes by James Watson, an 18 year old Nothern Irishman playing his first game for the club since signing as he has been given some intensive training. He looks to have a bright future and his progress will be closely watched

    His development means the departure of Gretener, who despite hitting many goals and a quality level of 30 is still held partly responsible for the poor performance at inkypoolutd FC earlier in the season. In his place arrives Martin Tuchsen, a giant Danish DC, to balance the squad with two players for every position

    Day 11 and 12

    Tuchsen makes his debut in a a comfortable 6-0 home win against maxouFC of France in the league. Young James Watson is the star of the show, making two goals and netting four himself, while Brazilian strike partner Yuri De Moraes scores one and creates 2 - including a goal for the returning Sam Cook who has been out injured for several days

    Later on Feeder travel to Raphael FC in the fifth game of the CL where a victory will secure qualification. A straightforward 3-0 win is marred by a knee cartilage tear suffered by Watson, which will see him out for 4 days, but with a big cup game tomorrow against a better quality team the medical unit are considering bringing in a specialist to get him ready for that match

    Feeder start Day 12 with a 6 - 0 win at home against Turkish side CR7 FC. It's an easy victory where there's even a chance for the big Paraguayan DC Julio Colman to waltz up the field, skip past the keeper and roll it into the net. It's a good win, but greater challenges await for this ambitious side

    The evening brings the big cup match that everyone has been waiting for. Watson returns from injury and makes the starting line up that travels to face RAVENS FC, a Level 3 team from Spain with world class players and a squad quality over 30 - the first time Feeder have faced such a powerful opponent

    Despite playing well and creating chances, the home team proves too strong - the game finishes 1 - 0 and Feeder are consigned to their third defeat of the season. The coach is disappointed at failing to grab an away goal, but the tie is still very much in the balance

    Day 13 and 14

    A club record 9 - 0 away win at lowly Danish team Wiberg, featuring a hat trick from Arljind Andreoli, continues Feeder's 100% league record. The down side is a broken leg for top scoring midfielder Marius Panzaru, which could leave him out for 20 days. With the return leg of the cup game coming tomorrow, a specialist will probably be brought in so that he's fit to play

    In the second game of the day Feeder avenge their only CL defeat against inkypoolutd FC, winning 4 - 2 to finish top of the group and advance to the knock out stage

    Next up is the Cup and the home stadium is packed out as Feeder welcome RAVENS FC. Despite giving away 3 points in team quality (29 v 32), the home side start well and open the scoring after 27 minutes. A great through pass from Andreoli puts star youngster James Watson in on goal and he slides home for the lead

    Then, with half time approaching, Andreoli unleashes a pile driver from distance and Feeder are ahead on aggregate. After the break RAVENS increase the pressure, so after 67 minutes Feeder drop their attacking style in favour of a more balanced approach. Despite some scares, they avoid conceding the goal that would put them out and at the final whistle scenes of jubilation engulf the stadium as the team make the QF

    The fans are going nowhere as, just 20 minutes later, 1st plays 3rd in a crunch league match. The home side, featuring 10 changes from the previous game, dominate from the first whistle - scoring after 6 minutes and rattling in a further four to leave their Italian opponents Giuseppe FC floored. This time it's Russian striker Vitaly Puzin who takes home the match ball

    Day 15

    Feeder face Italian opposition again, with the league leaders travelling to their closest rivals Black Diamonds. A first minute goal starts the ball rolling and, despite conceding an equaliser, an easy 4 - 1 win takes the team 6 points clear at the top

    This is followed by a comfortable away win in the first leg of the CL round of 16 against Fire Monkeys, which should see Feeder into the QF of that competition too. The French side are beaten 3 - 1 to complete an excellent few days for Feeder that has fans beginning to hope for a clean sweep of trophies

    Feeder then complete three new signings - one on one specialist GK Ashley Preddie making his debut in the evening game and ML/AML Moti Ahmed, who has shadow striker ability, signing a contract just afterwards. They replace De Cabooter and Cardona respectively, increasing the number of players with SA at a net cost of just £300k. Also joining is German DC/DL Dominik Munz - a direct replacement for Solovjov, but nine years younger and costing the club another £1m net

    Day 16, 17 and 18

    The new signings have to be ready for action as the games keep coming thick and fast. A 3-0 home victory against yasak of Turkey in the Cup Quarter Final puts Feeder in a great position to reach the Semis. This is followed by a 3-1 win at napoli in the league, a game the manager misses only to find both Chomchaipon and Skoglund have suffered injuries after scoring goals

    The following day a 6-1 home win against Iwona FC continues the great league form, Puzin again scoring three, and later on another 3-1 win against Fire Monkeys in the home leg of the CL sees progress made without too much fuss. One sour point is a red card for James Watson, who has been so prolific since breaking into the team. It means he will miss both legs of the Quarter Final

    Day 18 brings another new signing, this time 18-year old Edvard Karapetyan who is an Armenian DC/DMC, meaning Rabienda can be sold - he fetches 1.5X his value, concluding more good business in the market. It also brings another 6-1 win in the league, away to Arrancacepas, with de Moraes, Panzaru and, surprisingly, Israeli DC/DR Harel Shoresh all scoring two goals. A 1-1 draw at yasak gets Feeder into the Cup Semi Finals, with Munz grabbing his first goal for the club

    Hi and Welcome!

    It looks as if you have already picked up on how to play this game already and built yourself a very good team to be very competitive at your level and maintaining a squad such as that should see Feeder pick up many trophies in the future.

    You're right about that - I lurked for ages just scooping up info, I've played manager games for 20 years but each one has its quirks and there are plenty of people around here who know a lot more than me about this game

    Thanks July - appreciate the compliments, especially as I've picked up quite a lot from your guide and various posts on here

    You are a very fast learner.

    I wasn't that good at Level 2, I reckon you'll pick up a lot of cups in future.
