Well financially we have climbed back a little bit this season, but given that we have made a €300k profit which includes €300k worth of player sales and €600k worth of board investment, so a big hole is still there. Hopefully a season in Liga Adelante can help this because right now following the sale of Vignali, who we had no choice but to get rid of, we need a new striker to partner Herlein. The young Italian was demanding a transfer and teams were willing to offer 200k which we needed desperately. He left before our final playoff matches, but we got through anyway. I have got below the forced low wage budget, but it has been tough as shown by the fact my youth players have a combined 87 appearances it was a bit of a tough season, but I think they showed themselves as reasonable players and the rest of the team stepped up. Herlein led as only a captain can, he ended the season with 38 goals from 44 games, his first season without an injury and he only missed a single league game through suspension. I hope he will stick around in the future and lead us up the table in Liga Adelante as well.
Well we opened off the season with a 5 nil victory over Albacete, and we continued from there to go unbeaten through 10 games, a brilliant start to the season and we managed to get similar results through the whole year, it looked for a while like we could run away, but a small dip in the mid season saw Castilla start to get away and us drop back towards the chasers, but in the end we came home strong and Castilla fell off meaning on the final day if we won and they drew the title would be ours. In the end it was not to be as Castilla scored their 2nd goal at 90+3 to confirm the title heading to the North side of Madrid. We made it into the playoffs, but it took a record breaking effort from Castilla to beat us out in the title hunt, but we still scored a lot more goals than they did. In the end it didn't matter as we went the long way through the playoffs and took out Albacete, Badajoz & At.Madrid 'B' in a series of stunning results to win promotion to the Liga Adelante, though it does mean we have to face Castilla again. This saw some absolutely ecstatic fans singing my praises, the board were full of praise for the unbelievable promotion & club captain, Herlein came out and praised the huge effort put in by Des Tiny.

We headed to Lugo and got shown how to play cup football as they defeated us 1:3 in an easy game for them.
Riccardo Cappellari (ITA) - He came in to replace Moldovan who wouldn't sign for a low enough wage. I never expected him to come in and do better straight away. He came out with 33 appearances, he conceded only 37 goals and managed to keep the sheet clean on 12 occasions.
Guilliaume Dumast (FRA) - The French Leader at the back ended up injured and then he never made it back into the team as Marin & Ozlu took over and led the club through. Dumast will look to fight home into the spot, but its possible he will be sold. 5G 1A.
Anthony Marin (FRA) - A solid season from the 'other' Frenchman at the back, Marin looked good throughout the year. A real difference was made by our centre backs in the way they controlled the games. 3G 1A.
Juan Francisco Aranda (ESP) - The right back is the best Spanish player in our team, and he managed some great efforts this season, though he also got injured for a period, but made a great comeback in the playoffs. 0G 6A.
Nuno Malheiro (POR) - Simoes left from in front of him and Malheiro stepped up and did an amazing job, this performance through the season showed him as a true class DL, he can now play at right back solidly as well. 0G 13A.
Kıvanç Özlü (TUR) - He joined us near the end of October, and was straight in due to injuries and he never really looked back as neither Marin or Dumast could knock him back off the perch that he set himself, the young Turk fits in well with our team. 9G 1A.
Andre Gomes (POR) - A very solid season from the midfielder, I was definitely pleased with his contributions, though he did miss a key penalty which could've won us the title in hindsight. Very good and holds the middle of the park so the others can run the sides. 8G 9A.
Bruno Guillou (FRA) - A strong defensive midfielder definitely helps make a difference, if the opposition can't score then we don't need to score as many, and Guillou helps getting the ball forward as well. 1G 5A.
Taygun Kuru (TUR) - The first Turkish player in our side has continued to run rampant on the left, as soon as Grosjean left he stepped into the vacancy and led the way as the number 1 on assists, he managed to put Herlein in regularly. 7G 26A.
Murat Ogan (TUR) - We added another Turk, and he took the Right wing slot from Grosjean and ran with it, he is never going to be that good, but he is definitely good enough for us to be successful. 5G 4A.
Nicolas Morel (DC/DM)
Bas Groot (MR)
Miguel Herlein (POR) - The captain led from the front, and throughout an incredible season he only missed a single game, and that was due to suspension, I could not ask for more as his goalscoring continued at a close to record pace. 38G 14A.
Riccardo Vignali (ITA) - He left the club on June 11th, but had done pretty well before this, just didn't want to stay so I got rid of him, got a couple of replacements already. 23G 12A.
Stars on Loan
Not Entered this Season (Though I definitely asked to be included, have logged it as a bug and they are looking into it, hopefully the move up the ladder helps in this), I did end up arranging friendlies on a regular basis against lower league opposition, but really I want them in the U19s League and Cup as soon as I possibly can get them there.
The Youth Stars
Gorka Lopez (ESP/BAS) [GK] - A solid season at the back for Gorka, really he is just doing what is needed to get by. We need a better Junior keeper, but its not around at the moment.
Roberto (ESP) [GK]
Jaume - YP2a (ESP) [DRL] - The youngster only played a few games in the youth side, he instead managed 28 appearances for the top side on both sides of the defensive line.
Ivan - YP3a (ESP) [DLC] - He really is not the best player, but is about the best we have this season. 3 Youth Apps for 1G 1MoM & over 7 rating is a good start though.
Patryk Sliwinski (POL) [DC] - I bought this guy in during the season so I had further cover for my central defenders, he barely got any time for the senior side, but he was amazing in his 11 youth games.
Jose Manuel (ESP) [DLC]
Pablo Rubio (ESP) [DRC]
Angel - YP1 (ESP) [DM/DC] - 3 senior apps, and a reasonable effort on the under 19s squad, he is never really going to be an amazing prospect.
Roberto Delgado - YP3 (ESP) [DM/MLC] - He is versatile, he has bucket loads of potential and he has an amazing first touch. I am looking to him stepping in behind Gomes in the future.
Koldo Sola (ESP) [ML] - He became the youngest ever goalscorer for Parla this season, and he also managed a great 15 appearances off the bench as well. Sola is hoping to push onwards into the squad for the new season. But the new youth player, Delgado, may fight him for the slot.
Alvaro (ESP) [MR]
Miguel Torres (ESP) [AM/MC]
Pedro Sanchez (ESP) [DC/DM/MC]
Vicent (ESP) [DM/DC]
Ivan Vilches - YP1a (ESP) [MC/ST] - A very solid season in the U19s side for Vilches, but he really was not up to it for the first team and Juan Carlos ended up as the sub and then starter that the top team needed.
Juan Carlos - YP2 (ESP) [AMC/ST] - He was looking solid for the youth side, but then he had to step in and cover as a starter for quite a few games and ended up managing to score 6 goals for the senior side as he showed he might be able to step up.
A Statistic in the Spotlight
This section will highlight one club leaderboard, and show the top 10, plus the best of the current crop.
Taygun Kuru manages to crack the 50 assist mark during this season and now he will push away from the rest, especially as both his nearest challengers left for 'greener' pastures.

TV Money in this division is well worth it...2.1Million, also I have a stadium expansion because it is compulsory in Liga Adelante, they are installing 4000 terrace seats, not sure if that is just making my stadium seated or if it is additional seats, but anyway it should be completed for 16.04.16, but we have had a match in late April moved because it clashes with the team we are ground-sharing with.
