Encouraging start for Blyth Spartans in L2

Firstly, a strange coincidence, after Jamie Ness' wonder-strike in the real life Old Firm derby he scored an almost identical goal in a much more important game on my FM11 Blyth Spartans save. Compare the two below!

Blyth Spartans Have had a really encouraging start in League 2, lying 4th after 18 games. We started well beating Carlisle 3-1 on the opening day but have since crashed out of the League Cup and the St. Johnstan's Paint Trophy. although with the help form Jamie Ness' goal we're  still in the FA Cup, meeting Walsall in the 2nd Round.

The most alarming thing is the home form, where we've lost 4 games already, including a 4-0 drubbing by Aldershot. However the lads responded well in crunching Port Vale 5-1 in the very next game. This highlights our inconstancy, something I hope to address by signing a Captain, to bring the team together. Currently my captain is Mustapha Traoré but he only has an Influence rating of 13 - I need a leader.

The squad is performing well on the whole, but the step up in divisions and switch to professionalism is taking time for the team to get used to.
