Welcome to the end of season finale. Can I get Argyle straight back up to League One on Football Manager 2020?
It’s time to find out.
5 games left.
5 points off automatics as we sit in 4th.
But we start with the baffling news of a new contract offer from Simon Hallett. What an absolute gamble this is if we go on to bottle it in the play-offs.
A sign of faith perhaps.
I couldn’t sign that contract quick enough.
No matter what league we are in next year there will be a lot of squad changes with most players out of contract.
The players will have to earn a contract if they want to stay in Plymouth for the next season.
It’s 2nd place Forest Green at home. A huge game in the promotion race.
I’m aware this playthrough hasn’t has been in-depth tactically as I’d hoped. I’ve ditched ‘Lowe-ball’ and I’ve resorted to my favourite formation. 4-3-3. I feel it’s the most balanced, and gives our attacking players more freedom.
That is all.
The Argyle are coming for the top three.
I am still starting with Mike Cooper, to maximise the amount of loan players we can play, and it’s not only doing his development good, its doing his wallet good too.
One less pair of legs to see out the season.
I’ts hard to say who has the best run-in out to the promotion contenders, but we only face one team in the top half of the table. So I am optimistic.
And there they are. Walsall.
No need for any changes.
George Cooper steps up once again and we get the win. Get in.
He has been a revelation on the left wing.
That’s our play-off spot covered at least. But we want more.
We are just waiting for that slip up from the team’s above, and we will strike.
Dominic Telford can’t stop scoring.
The penultimate game of the season. It’s must win. It’s Oldham away. It’s unchanged.
It’s the 5ft10, £3 million Southampton man who causes scenes in the away end!
Half time and Forest Green are dropping points.
It’s all coming together.
I’VE SLATED HIM EVER SINCE HE STARTED PLAYING FOR US, BUT THERE IS THE QUALITY I WAS LOOKING FOR. PULLS IT OUT OF HIS ASS TO FIND THE BOTTOM CORNER WITH EASE. 2 – 0.
Cambridge have only gone and done FGR! It’s in our hands with one game to go.
Although the title is out of the question.
Thank you Freddie and Rotherham.
We are in great form going into the final game of the season.
Surely I can’t bottle it now?
Will this become a team of promotion heroes come the end of 90 minutes?
Who other than Dominic Telford to kick things off on 30 minutes.
Looked offside, but there is no VAR in League Two, so get that open top bus ordered.
Surely we are going to win now.
It’s Dom Telford’s promotion party and 16,000 greens are all invited.
Hat trick hero.
Oh and Lewis Morgan scored again.
Ei ei ei o.
Was never in doubt.
£400k to assemble a League One team.
Send me your suggestions!
Why do I feel so proud of a video game achievement?
The final standings. Fair play Macclesfield.
Over to you Ryan Lowe, try and better that!

My favourite part of FM is rebuilding a team, so I’m looking forward to the period ahead.
There will be a little break in this series while I try out some more FM20 content lined up, so keep an eye out for that.
Thanks for reading.
