So the game has been out for a few weeks now and I have completed my first season. I probably don't play as much as others, but I would still like to share how my first season went.
The board wouldn't allow for any other result than winning the league, and I was scared that the sacking wave under the current scenario would end up in an early finish of the dream of taking Halifax to the National League. Only two signings were made pre season because it was hard to find players that would fancy play in the VNN. Mid season, a small injury crisis made me sign an extra defender that would become a solid member of the first eleven. But the stars of my team were going to be the players that were there from the start, specially a 23 year old striker that had only scored 33 goals in 6 years of career. Without further ado, here's how the league went.
The tactics were the following:
And the unknown striker pulled this off:
Halifax also managed a giant killing against Torquay in the FA cup, only to lose against Portsmouth in the second round... But not without taking the match to a replay!
The bad part of this season was not replicating the success from the previous season in which the team was able to hold the FA Trophy. However, Halifax was the only team from VNN and VNS to get to quarterfinals, although we lost against Southport with two goals in the last 10 minutes of the game.
