    Season 6 January February and March Update - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | Finances

    This season was strange as we have the qualifying rounds of a cup in our off season, the friendlies we played were all good and we performed well. However we struggled to carry this into arguably one of the hardest groups. We soldiered on and ended up with a couple of good wins at the end which I was happy about. The meant that we qualified and are now through to the cup proper!

    The finances are a mess as I couldn't play as many friendlies as I wanted to. I need to get some more investors or something. I also selected a high cup and league bonus to help us get into Europe quicker.

    Transfers | Squad

    The squad is now full. It's not as great as I would like it but it should do, I am thinking about moving to a 4-4-2 narrow diamond again to try and help me score more goals however my overall aim if to switch to a 4-1-2-2-1 with AMR/L's

    I will still probably be busy in the transfer market for some while to come, on a side note we did snap up some young foreign talent that we had on loan when the clubs left it until 6 months left on there contracts. We will have them on loan until the contract end and then they will sign for us.

    It should have told you on the league table last season. Did it have the EC next to your club?

    What deadfncat said, if anyone can help then please do: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...ch-quot-screen.

    Also I might end this and start again with Russia as it's a much bigger country and I could get more attendance... I have a mod for down to tier 3 and I might extend that down to tier 5 (not the same as real life)...

    The first season was tough, it was a club with players who I couldn't say the name of, let alone type and spell! But the next season my influence started to show, I was seeing players who would play week in week out. There was also a tight battle for the one playoff spot (not even straight promotion!) I feel that when you go through a tough time with a team they become closer to you. The first season seemed like I was doing it to try and prove it was possible, the next I did because I wanted to see how good the players were, the third I was doing it to prove to the media that we were better, after that I was doing it for a love of the club.

    It's hard to narrow down but people generally enjoy their saves more if they are the underdogs, a small club with not a great deal of history. The good thing about this is if I beat a Premiership side I feel elated! The team I just beat is only English League 1 standard but to my team they are giants! If your playing as Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal (as examples) beating another team is your weekly task, being in the lower tiers staying profitable and fighting for draws is your task.

Basically, hopefully they get it fixed, and you can get back to developing Iceland still further :-D

    Been away from this thread for a bit and it seems I've missed a lot of excitement! Glad to see you've got the game fixed and can resume with the save. With DSYoungEsquire's, mine and yours, we could have a Welsh team, Irish team and Icelandic team winning the Champions Leagues. Who would've thunk it! I hope you hold up your side of the bargain :P. On a more serious note, congrats on the progress

    Awful, and I just got a red card for one of my defenders when the ref was about 40 yards away... I hate having a better team and the complete inability to score. Complete joke.

    Season 6 July Half Season Update - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    I don't think the word "average" does justice to this season so far. I have honestly never seen that many draws. I have draw against the top teams and drawn against the lowest, we can't seem to buy a win. We are now out of both of the cups, mainly due to the fact we are drawing all of our games. We do currently have one of the longest unbeaten runs in the league but they are all draws!

    The table doesn't look pretty, 6 points from 9 games. I think if we stay up it will be by doing it the hard way!

    Finances | Transfers

    Pretty normal season, the new cup screwed with me getting money but oh well I will try and cope.

    As you can see we got rid of loads and got in loads more this season.

    That's a lot of draws, hopefully when your injury problems start to ease you'll be able to get those wins and survive.

    I told the board I would "Battle Bravely Against Relegation", the fact that I got much further in the cups meant I was still very secure, even when 12th!

    Season 6 Review - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    As you can see the season was one of two halves, quite literally. We sucked the first half, we couldn't get a win no matter what I tried. This forced me to move away from my beloved narrow formations and to a wide formation, 4-1-2-3 with AMR/L's, I did this at the half way point, as you can see it worked! We won games! If you look at the position graph you can see the massive change, the team that was stuck on the bottom of the table ended up rocketing up into 3rd by the end of the season. If we can carry on the form of the 2nd half of the season then we should easily get promoted, maybe as champions!

    In terms of the cups we did ok. We reached the quarter finals of the League Cup and the 3rd round of the FA Cup, I am fairly happy with the results but I will be trying to improve next season.

    Finances | Transfers

    My first season that we have ended in debt, I have about a month that falls into this season to correct that which I hopefully will be able to do.

    Diaz was probably one of the greatest signings of this season, the Paraguayan keeper has 4 clean sheets in 9 games which isn't bad and at 23 can only get better!

    Key Players

    1. Gustavo Pena. 7 Goals in 15 appearances and always a key part of my attack. At 19 he has a bright future ahead of him, he is currently on loan and I would love to make it permanent but I don't think that I can cope up with the £150k price tag, it will be a sad day when Pena leaves the club.

    2. Eric Cousins . Jamaican international at the age of 18, do I really need to say much more than that? This kid has some serious talent, it was even better that I got him on a free when he old club forgot to renew he contract when it had 6 months left!

    3. Gonzalo Olid Apaza. It was between Apaza and a left sided Icelandic winger I have on loan, Apaza got it by virtue of playing more games, they have both contributed 4 goals each so I'm very happy.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    Season 7 Prevue - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | Expectations | Media Expectations

    I am a bit disappointed with the last loss, it was a game we really should have won. Other than that we played well and have be creating a good amount of chances, Pena is becoming a big part of the team so I really want to keep him.

    I choose the option that would give me the highest budget with the lowest expectations, the club is in debt so I can understand the smaller budgets. The media is still convinced of our imminent failure, what a surprise!

    Finances | Transfers

    They are looking a little better but not great, I need more fans!

    This year I haven't made many transfers as my squad showed it was good enough last season.

    Squad

    I have a new assistant so there are slightly different ratings but as you can see the squad is quite good for the league.

    Key Signings

    1. Marcio. He is the only player I have signed so far, he is my replacement right back after I got rid of my 31 year old right back who was on £450 p/w and wanted £550 p/w so he got shown the door.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    Good luck in your new season

    Excellent season last time out Flamers, shame you didn't bring out the 4-1-2-3 a little earlier or you'd have been popping the champagne once again! Good luck bagging the final promotion next season

    Season 7 January February and March Update - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | Finances

    Looking back on my results they are actually quite good, if you bear in mind that all but 2 of my group were Premiership teams we did well! We pulled out some good draws and sneaked a couple of wins.

    The finances have done their annual up turn which is good. On another note the Chairman let me have a larger wage budget which means I can sign some more good players.

    Transfers | Squad

    Chavez was going cheap, £3k for a player who can play MC and MR, I am also training him to play AMR so he will be very helpful for all of my tactics.

    The squad looks good, I'm happy with it and my assistant is as well. We could probably do with a couple of DR/L's who are better but I can't find any so those will do.

    Season 7 July Half Season Update - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table | Expectations

    Now we have become a bit sporadic! We have the best home record, 5 wins, but our away record is dreadful, 1 draw and 3 defeats! We sucked in the cups, plain and simple we got through the groups and then crashed out in the League Cup and the FA Cup, well we went out to a team 2 tiers lower than us, the boys got a good old ear bashing after that!

    Due to our insane home form we are sitting pretty in 4th place, tied with 2nd! So it is looking better this year. Due to that the board let me change my expectations but after the cup problem we had I don't want to chance my arm.

    Finances | Transfers

    Your eyes do not deceive you, we are making a profit! not huge but it's a profit! Time to save to get some facilities.

    Not much happened in the transfer market.

    On track for promotion

    A bit of that 2nd half of the season magic from last season wouldn't go amiss here either.


    Also congratz on making a profit

    Season 7 Review - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | League Table

    We sucked away from home, 3 wins, 1 draw 7 loses. At home we had the best record, 10 wins and 1 loss! The cup we sucked in as well. This year was a bad year for the club, we should have easily been promoted but we weren't. Honestly we were dreadful in some games, we really need to improve our defending of corners and free kicks as well.

    Honestly we were lucky to have finished third, we should have really finished lower than that due to our poor form at the end of the season.

    Finances | Transfers

    Considering we haven't done out money making exercise this season we aren't doing too badly! I think that a decent profit will be doable.

    Yalta was inspired if I do say so myself, 11 goals in 21 appearances, top of the league!

    Key Players

    1. Roberto Yalta. He is incredible, he played 21 of the 22 league games, 11 goals scored and 8 assists. He also got 4 MoM awards. What more do you want from a player who can play anywhere in right or central midfield!

    2. Eric Cousins . I think he is the first player to have made the key players twice. He has only made 19 league games due to international call ups. He has 12 caps now and is about to get 3 more this November.

    3. Juan Carlos Diaz. My keeper, only 9 clean sheets but he did a wonderful job all season when my defence decided to go sleepy.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    Unlucky Flamers. 3rd two seasons on the trot. 6 points more than the season before as well and still not going up.

    Get the hair dryer out at half time a bit more and give the boys a kick up the backside away from home.

    I do, we play much better after half time. I generally only concede one if I'm unlucky after half time.

    Season 8 Prevue - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | Expectations | Media Expectations

    Last seasons bit of the preseason went well! 1 loss to a bigger side and a draw. We still need to improve our defence but oh well.

    Expectations are the same as last year, hopefully I will make it this year. The media still thinks I suck but that's there problem not mine.

    Finances | Transfers

    Back in the black, with good attendances last season getting myself into the black was easier, I also spent £36k on transfers as well so we are doing really well!

    I brought in a lot of good back up players and a couple of gems. Not really much to say other than I got rid of a lot of wage munching players. I am now £600 p/w under my budget as well.

    Squad

    The future looks good, I have the youngest squad with "highest" or "best" in 8 categories! I bet we still suck though... Also note the last Icelandic who will be part of my team...

    Key Signings

    1. Julio Fuentes. Contract expired and I got his agent to make him agree to £150 p/w, bargin. Not very fast but I can train that up, at 19 he has a long career at this club hopefully.

    2. Franco Guerrero. I challenge you to say his surname! Another player who is not too quick but very versatile, he will be great when injuries hit part way through the season. With 18 tackling though he should stop some of those pesky strikers!

    3. Nicolas Piovera. A blisteringly quick player, he is being trained to be a left back, a position that I think he might end up making his own for a few seasons. He might need a bit more stamina though.

    If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

    When you arrange your friendlies how do you know which foreign teams to go for to get the most money? Do you just use the "higher rep foreign clubs"

    so the name in brackets when you choose a team to play friendly with is how much you get from the game?! I always thought that it is amount of money you have to pay them for playing

    You pay them that amount if you play at home. They pay you that amount if you choose away.

    Season 8 End Of Preseason Update - 1. Deild Karla:

    Results | Finances

    I think I'm finally starting to get a hang of this cup. We blitzed it, 5 wins, 1 draw and a loss. Top of the group, a group which had 5 Premiership sides in it! Our friendlies once again were just money grabbing exercises.

    A lovely healthy bank balance, I have wanted one of these for a while and it seems to have arrived! I know they are not perfect but they are a lot better than they have been before which is what matters!

    Transfers | Squad

    The new transfers are a 2 season loan loan of an incredibly pacey striker who cuts through defences like a hot knife through butter and several rotation players as my midfield is a tiring place to be!

    The squad looks good and I'm pleased with it.
