Macclesfield Story: Good Start of the Season!
After starting the season 2016/2017 in Football Manager 2010 with three draws in just as many league matches, things went pretty nice for The Silkmen who now managed a record this season: Macclesfield is at number five in the Premiership, with 27 points in 16 matches and once again with some great offensive stats (as you can see in the image above).
It is even stranger, first of because of my transfers which were not that satisfying (except for the AMCs and Bradley) and second because my players keep getting injured and I doubt I had a single game with the first eleven I have in mind. Well, probably first elevens in FM 2010 tend to be created by themselves…
I was really satisfied with the performances of Daniel Sanchez, the American striker who is already considered a Wonderkid (the first one in my Macclesfield career!), who bagged in some nice goals. My previous goalscorer, the great Marinov keeps getting injured and I am worried for his future. Let’s just hope that things will be OK!
I have also signed a last-minute player, the promising Romanian central midfielder Razvan Meghesan who looks absolutely amazing for his 16 years (and according to the reports, he’s going to improve even more – hopefully a new wonderkid!):
Also, The Moss Rose, Macclesfield’s stadium has a bigger capacity after the board has built once again 4780 seats, reaching the maximum capacity of 15,000 seats. Hopefully we’ll manage to get enough money in order to build a new stadium since 15,000 is very low for a Premier Division team in England.
There was also one absolutely disgusting result, when we’ve lost at home against last-placed Reading with the incredible score of 1-4. Well… that’s football sometimes!
As you’ve seen above, Daniel Pacheco has performed really well, scoring lots of goals (10 in his career at Macclesfield), especially since he played as a striker because of the injuries. Fortunately, this seemed to mean a lot for Fiorentina who rushed to buy the lad for 15 million. I couldn’t say no to the money, so I sold Pacheco before he even learned the language:
