    I have just played out a thrilling comeback in my second Brazilian game to win it 2-1.



    I have worked out why the team is conceding, all of my new signings has reduced how well the team know the tactic so I have put that up to try and help

    Thanks The game goes so slowly due to me having 90 odd leagues loaded.. A bit annoying but more realistic.

    Season 3 January February and March Update - 2. Deild Karla:

    I went for nearly all away friendlies again this season in order to bring in some cash.

    The results were a bit of a mixed bag, some amazing ones, and some awful ones. Hopefully we can get some good results in the league and be a bit more consistent. I like to play a lot of friendlies to keep the team in good shape and as I make money I can't complain!

    On the plus side are finances are very healthy! We are now £70k in the black which is good, if we can start turning a profit then I might get some new facilities!

    Season 3 June Half Season Update - 2. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    Considering we were expected to finish last we are not doing too bad! Poor finishing is costing us some of are games but I'm sure that I can improve that in the transfer window which is in July. If not I will be able to do it over winter when my reputation should have hopefully gone up.

    For the first time ever we are into the third round of the cup, we have drawn First division KA. I will try to win but it doesn't bother me that much, I would prefer to be safe in the league than get to the 4th round in the cup.

    Finances | Transfers

    I am making a £4k loss every month but we have a big enough bank balance to cope, I am also now starting to buy in players as I have £19k left in my transfer budget!

    There isn't any rules about that in any level of Icelandic football. It's so bad no one really wants to come here...

    As I'm doing quite well this season I changed my expectations:

    I'm always paranoid about changing expectations mid-season! Plus if you keep them as low as possible the board are extra-happy if you exceed them

    Well I can't seem to score for love nor money, I lost 1-0 in my last game.

    17 shots, 6 on target, 55% possession and I hit the crossbar once!

    They had 6 shots 2 on target... HOW!!??

    depends though
    when you get into the big money, the extra cash can be considerable and make a lot of difference in signing a big name playre

    Season 3 Review - 2. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    You can see the big blip that happened during the middle of the season. I changed the tactics a little, and let my assistant do the team talks and signed some new strikers, something worked and started scoring, not many but 1 goal is enough to win a match. At the end of the season we turned unbeatable, in 14 games we lost 2! Admittedly some of them, quite a lot, were draws but it was still points. Next season I think we can make a good charge for the top considering some of the signings I have lined up.

    We got through one round of the cup then lost 3-1 to KA but I didn't mind, my mind was on the league.

    Finances | Transfers

    I am now making bigger losses which is worrying however my 3 month pre season should sort that out!

    I released a lot of players in order to free up some wage budget, I have changed from loaning to buying players which will be better in the long run. My scouts have started finding some real jems who could really make a difference in sure a lowly skilled division.

    Key Players

    1. Sindri Steinarsson. A versatile defender with 6 Man of the Match awards to his name this season. He also has scored 4 vital goals this season from corners.

    2. Guomundur Steinporsson. My top scorer with 6 in all competitions, not great but the best out of a bad bunch really. However he is on the Favoured Personnel list.

    3. Samuel Kjartansson. One of the strikers that I brought in half way through the season, scored 3 in 11 starts which is respectable. He would have been higher up if he had played the whole season.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    My scouts are doing a damn good job, they keep turning up players who will sign on frees who are "leading stars" for the division ABOVE me!!

    I just noticed I conceded the fewest goals last season, go me!

    Season 4 Prevue - 2. Deild Karla:

    Results | Expectations | Media Expectations

    These are few few friendlies that fall into last season, Only one goal conceded so it seems that my new goal keeper is fitting in well, my new strikers also seem to be getting the hang of the system.

    I selected "Top Half Finish" as I needed the wage budget really. I am aiming high this year and in all honesty I will be disappointed if we can't get promotion as the squad looks way to strong to be in this division and sure run riot. If they can score. The media have put me a 50-1 outsiders.

    Finances | Transfers

    Well, lets not look at my finances. I am still in the black but not by much, I am going to have to play 4 months of solid friendlies to be able to keep afloat all season.

    I did bring in basically a whole new first team this season, however most of them are rated to be good enough to last me even if I get promoted. So I was looking for the future, I did bring in a couple of older players to give me a bit of experience but even these players are rated 4 stars in this division!

    Squad

    I have started to sign foreign players! I have found a stupid amount of good Ukrainians and a couple of good Brazilians who were willing to sign for me. The best thing about Iceland is there is no restriction on foreign players, at any level!

    Key Signings

    1. Olexiy Kopylchenko. He may be getting on but he still has some pretty damn good physicals, combine that with 13 finishing and good mental stats he is a great striker!

    2. Nilton. Natural Defensive Midfielder, good physicals and not bad technical skills. He's another one who's getting on but he should do me for a good couple of seasons, I got him on a free as well so he looks prefect.

    3. Vignir Johannesson. Another players who joined on a free, this time he came from Premier Division winners Breioabik having only made 9 appearances in his career, he's young and pretty good so I'm happy.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    The club is now worth £4.3m....

    I'm hoping that the staff aren't good enough to cope

    ouch must be a killer to the players. good pre season training though
    I was going to do a pre season tour with my squad but I'm penny pinching at the moment to try and upgrade everything.

    Season 4 January February and March Update - 2. Deild Karla:

    Results | Finances

    I only conceded 7 goals, which isn't too bad. 4 of those were in 2 games so that's not bad, I have also worked out that I hate playing Brazilian clubs. The style they play seems to course havoc with my system which I don't like. We also did take down some bigger clubs and put in some good performances. I am very confident going into this season and I feel we should do well.

    My finances have been buoyed by my jet setting across the world which is nice, we have made £67k profit in 3 months which should last us until next season. The thing that keeps getting me is that I can only get £1.5k in sponsorship, some clubs are getting £60k in my division. One club also got taken over and is now the richest in Iceland.

    Well this was a good way to start the league campaign:



    They had no shots on target as well, kinda shows how insanely good my defensive is...

    This is playing with my new 4-4-2 narrow diamond I now have a natural AMC who is insane, even it 31

    Nope I use Control as starting though. I just drew 1-1, I seem to only concede from corners, I need to sort that out...

    3rd tier still.

    How about this for how bad my strikers are and how good the opposition goal keepers are:

    18 shots, 6 on target, none scored. 5 shots, 2 on target they scored. I feel there might be a LITTLE bias in here? 54% possession to me as well...

    Oh that team was the division below..

    happens. usually bad strikers rather than good keepers though.
    strikers getting lazy and taking bad shots.
    pick them apart at half time and criticise their performance afterwards etc.
    or bench them :P

    depends where you are playing them too and if they take long shots

    tone down your attack a bit more and sit them back. they may be too excited and firing too quick? maybe lower the tempo

    I changed from "Control" to "Standard" and scored!! Admittedly it was my AMC, but still!!

    EDIT: 3 times now


    EDIT2: 3 scored out of 5 on target, much better

    I complained again, this time I got a touchline ban :P

    I hate this ref... So far he has disallowed 6 goals this season of mine. And not given me 2 penalties. What I joke, oh and red carded 2 of my players...

    Season 4 July Half Season Update - 2. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    3 draws, 2 losses and 6 wins +7 goal difference and yet I have only score 14. It's not great but it's getting us by, I am having to create some weird tactics in order to get my best players in the right positions. My latest creation is a 4-1-3-2, not that weird but it is considering I have about 7 strikers on my books!

    Expected to finish 11th, bah who's stupid idea was that? I think that person might be getting the sack. The lowest I have been all season has been 5th and that was during the time when I couldn't hit a barn door and lost my only 2 games. Overall I am quite happy, I wouldn't mind to get a good striker who is capable of doing what he's paid to do but without a massive budget and no players wanting a cold summer break on loan I am struggling.

    Finances | Transfers

    The less said about my finances the better, simply I need promotion this year or I will really struggle.

    No transfers due to having no league reputation and being expected to be relegated in that division.

    The game after the update was the one a had a touchline ban for, guess what happened? We won 2-0, one of our biggest wins all year...

    But my assistant did manage to injure my star DMC for 10-12 days... Luckily there was no fixture for 14 days after
