Hello; my name is Joe, and this is my first thread in the career forums, so as many others say, please bare with me. I chose Pro Vercelli firstly because I wanted to start in the lower leagues of Italy. But I didn't want to just start with any old team; I wanted to start with a team with history. I made a fair bit of indepth research and one team stood out head and shoulders above the rest - Pro Vercelli.


About Pro Vercelli
Unione Sportiva Pro Vercelli Calcio was one of the most successful Italian football clubs in the early decades of the twentieth century, with seven national titles won between 1908 and 1922. Based in Vercelli, Piedmont, the team currently plays in Italy's Lega Pro Seconda Divisione, or in FM - Serie C2. They dominated the Italian Football Championship in the 1910's and 1920's winning the title an outstanding seven times, coming runner-up once.

Anderson is a beast on my game with Canavese :thup:

Scored 28 goals this season at almost a goal a game. Oh and they have just pipped me to the league title basically, if I win and they lose they win the league on head to head :thdn:

30-11-2009, 11:41
Yeah Anderson is a beast!

And ahh good look mate. I was top all season but then in the last few games dropped to third, and now currently am losing the play-offs. :(

30-11-2009, 11:59
Yeah he just scored a hat-trick in the last game of the season.

Well it is safe to say, I am in love with Anderson. :o update is just coming.

30-11-2009, 12:07
I really should have realised that the play-off final is two legs. :(

30-11-2009, 12:16
That is what I'm dreading, add to the fact that my loans will have finshed before my actual season finishes.:thdn:

30-11-2009, 12:20
I didn't make any loans so I'm okay. ;)

I really need to look at my tactics at the end of the season; they are god awful. :thdn:

End of Season Update
First season has been finished, and although I should be delighted, I am bitterly disappointed. I was first all throughout the season until the final few games, and my poor management skills shone through. Overall though, a fairly good season, even though it could of been so much more.

League Table

At one stage I was ten points clear, but I just wasn't up to the challenge. As you can see, I drew way to many games, as my defence was rather shocking. The league table does show the strength of my attack though, with my team being one of the highest scorers.I Will definately be looking to win the league next season, and the board have made this my aim.

I was way to reliant on Anderson, and although he produced the goods, it was impossible for him to lead us by himself. I am extremely disappointed at the fact I only had six different scores throughout the season, and that is probably why I didn't win the league. I feel a complete overhaul of the squad is needed, especially in defence. Anderson is the only untouchable player to be quite honest.

I thought I was on my way out after losing the semi-final first leg 2-0, but a change in tactics saw me destroy Feralpi Saló with an emphatic win. I was confident of getting promoted after that win, but Alto Adige had other ideas. The first leg finished 2-2 (I didn't realise it was a two-legged final :rolleyes:) and Alto Adige destroyed me in the second leg. The scoreline is completely flattering to my team to be perfectly honest.

Aims for Next Season

Work on a successful tactic.
Sort out my corner routine - no goals from corners were scored ALL season.

Did your research take you to this website:
http://www.runofplay.com/2009/04/23/pro-vercelli-the-ghosts-of-1910/ ?

Ye gods, Pro Vercelli's history of a century ago is astonishing. I love the way the website blurs real life and FM, but in this case real life is so extreme it can't be re-enacted in FM. If only WE could put out a team of 10-15 year olds!

It didn't actually, but that is a very interesting website. :thup:

I kinda abandoned this save for a while, due to having exams coming up, but I may well continue this soon.
