    Gundo - Sola Fotball - Season Review 2014

    2.divisjon Final Positon.

    It turned out to be a season beyond my expectations. I wanted an improvement on last seasons 5th place finish and I got much more than I ever expected. Two games to go and we were in a two way fight for the Title against Notodden, the club that was relegated into our group from the Adecco last season. Our first game saw us play Viking 2 (Vikings strong reserve team) away, while Notodden had Nest Sotra (a team fighting for survival) at home. We managed to produce an epic 2-1 win courtesy of goals from Jonas Olsen and Lasse Grande. Notodden had a rather straightforward 4-0 win! Meaning only a win for us in our final game against Notodden at home would be enough to secure the title.

    We had already beat them 5-2 in a remarkable game at there place earlier in the campaign, however I was still nervous. I really shouldn't have been though, as we went on to smash them 3-0, with goals from Lindroo's (2) and Fossen. Which took the Title to the Sola Stadion and capture promotion to the Adeccoligaen (1.divisjon).

    Other highlights for the season included home and away victories over derby rivals Sandnes Ulf, 1-0 and 4-0 respectively.

    Well I had my suspicions Jonas Olsen might be a hit and that proved to be the case as he broke the club record (previously 11) for the clubs top scorer as he notched 16 league strikes, some of them real screamers.
    Sindre Fossan again had an excellent campaign and I doubt he'll be as influential next season, but he'll be decent back up for sure.
    The creative Spark through the middle fell mainly on the shoulders of Albert Berbatovic and he was key with his energetic running.
    Tor Omar Sande, I picked this young guy up form Randaberg last season, having remembered him performing well for Randaberg's Youth team irl some years back. Made him captain before we kicked off this season and he thrived on that by earning the higest average rating at the club.

    Average attendance: 323. Up again slightly on last season by 21.

    Next season: Hopefully survival, I think we'll be stronger enough for that as things stand.

    My new striker, Nkosinathi Maboso, has started his career at Budafok pretty damn good. While his jumping skills are matched by my grandmother, his finishing is sublime. I think the Ł55k I paid for him was a good inventment!

    Good signing, it would seem he has the same perm as your grandmother too!

    Hahaha, didn't think of that one!

    He did get a knock the last game, and I thought my backup, Michael Chukwuemeka, could get a chance. He delivered.

    Congratulations, Gundo! That was a well deserved and great promotion.

    With the right signings you will be able to do well in the Adecco. Nice to see Olsen delivering the goods for you.

    Thanks Taunton. Hopefully Olsen will take to the step up in divisions aswel, although I think his finishing may need to improve a little.

    brettney1980 well done on survival.

    Drew the Cookie Eater, unlucky missing out on promotion but still a good season

    Gundo congratulations on promotion.

    I may have found the task of making Barakaldo a force with only Basque players too hard to turn down over on the big Euro challenge, but this challenge is always the main one to me and I love the stories on here because we can all relate to being in a crap league where even when we get to the top division it's always a lot harder than the big nation challenge due to less money in the leagues. I'll be back with my NK Svoboda save at some point as it would be great to be the first to complete the challenge in Slovenia. In the meantime good luck everyone and i'll still be looking out for you all

    Cheers, Dexter. You have done great here, and I absolutely agree with you that the Barakaldo challenge is extremely tempting.

    Will follow your progress. Good luck.

    THE FUTURE IS NOW

    Vurogj's Belgian adventure | Sprimont | Belgian 3rd League A | 2012-13 Season


    League : 1st | Progress chart
    Championship playoff : Winners
    Belgian Cup : 4th Round

    Transfer report

    The pre-signed players were mostly pretty dire, and were soon on their way, as were much of the other dross. I've no plans for a youth system until we can afford one, instead looking for players who haven't got anywhere with their Belgian Pro League clubs. Ciza and Rufai (both ex-Anderlecht) have international honours, Ciza picking up some full caps with Burundi, and Rufai making the Nigerian U21 side. After the season ended, Davy Roef was called in as a replacement to the U19 squad.

    Season report

    We started like a steam train, 27 goals in our first ten games sending us top, and staying there until the players realised they were top and almost overnight got nervous and stopped scoring. A switch from 4-5-1 to 4-4-2 gave Legros a little help and we recovered in time to clinch the title with a game to spare.

    Squad report

    The obvious standout is Guillaume Legros, who was far too good for this division, ending with a goal a game. Kevin Nieus' rating came mostly from assists.

    Short term plan

    Gut the current squad, as at least half of it isn't ready for Second League football. Continue the bargain hunting. Find better staff. Finish mid-table.

    Gah, double post, but the very next news item after I clicked continue was this one, which turns the 2500 (500 seated) capacity ground you can see in the youtube video above into a 5385 capacity stadium. No word yet if it's all seater. Two years until it's done, and then I guess I'll have to stop adding the link to the video

    Damnit, why oh why won't the agents talk contracts with me?!? Looks like I'm losing my goalkeeper and my best defender this summer. Huge clubs are offering them contracts, but their agents won't talk to me. Been trying now for one and a half year!

    End of season report 2017/1
    Table | Past positions | Squad | Finances | Transfers


    No treble this time, but we got the league and the Magyar Kupa. We are still increasing the margin down to the other teams, but Debrecen put up a fight in the league. Them and us were close untill 10 matches left when we beat them 5-0. After that they seemed to lose a bit of their momentum and our lead increased greatly before we secured the title with 4 matches left.

    We had our second attempt at the Champions League this season, and as last year we started in the 2nd qualifying round. We got drawn up against Bangor City of Wales and they were easily dispatched with an aggregate score of 14-1. At the next draw polish outfit Slask came up and they also got beaten with a respectable 6-1 aggregate score. In the playoff we got Czech team Sparta Prague, but they didn't deliver as we beat them 6-3 on aggregate to progress to the group stage. Once again we were 4th seeded and got a tough group containing of Man Utd, Sevilla and CSKA Moswoc aswell as ourselves. I had some hope of getting some points this time, but we rose to the occasion and actually won the group! The result went our way as we won the group with a negative goal difference after getting beaten thoroughly 5-0 at Old Trafford. In the 1st knockout round we got Lyon as opponent, and they proved to hard for us as we lost 1-6 on aggregate. Still, it was a great run and should increase our coefficient immensely for the next seasons.

    In the domestic cups there were no Szuperkupa this season for some reason? In the Ligakupa we got all the way untill the final before losing 0-1 to Debrecen. We retained the Magyar Kupa as we easily got to final and smashed MTK 3-0 in the final.

    The most important player this season has been Petr Jurcik who has contributed an incredible 41 assists as a defensive midfielder! We are also losing some of our most important players in Dalibor Gal and Milán Szűcs as they refused to talk about new contracts. Other notable players include Ayanda Shongwe, Nkosinathi Mabaso and Edin Ajanovic.

    Taunton - Tollnes - Season review - 2019 - Norwegian Premier division

    Table (6th)

    Our inaugural season in the top flight went better than expected. We were solid and almost snatched a spot in Europe. But in our second last game we were 3-1 up away at Rosenborg, but they showed that they were way ahead of the other teams in the league and turned the game round to win 4-3. But this has kept me optimistic, and I hope to challenge for top three next season.
    We can also claim the we are the best team in the city, with our neighbours and rivals, Odd, finishing below us.

    We had a very small squad, short in depth. Because our board decided to expand the stadium we suddenly were 20 million in the red. So I sold some of our best players to be able to keep our head above water.

    Still the squad performed great, and if we kan get professional next season we have both the money and reputation to attract better players.

    The challenge is to get good norwegian players. I have signed some good foreigners, but since we are semi professional the best norwegians go elsewhere. There is a limit of eleven foreigners, so that means we have to get more norwegian talent in.

    As a reward for our strong first season in the top flight, I was awarded manager of the year.

    Best player: Robert Onyeike. Got him for free midway in the season. A class act, can be a leading player in the norwegian league. Dominates the midfield.

    Top scorer: Michael Mortensen. Another good season from Morten. He shoved that he could cut it at the top level as well.

    Economy: Looking good. Had to sell some players to climb out of debt, but a small wage bill combined with tv money, stadium income and prize money makes us look solid.

    Key: This season (Last season)

    Wage budget: Nkr 77.500 p/w (87.500 Nkr p/w)

    Transfer budget: 0 Nkr p/w (806.000 Nkr p/w)

    (For pounds, just divide the number with ten)

    Av. attendance: 4285 (1427) (Some games where played at the Skagerak Arena while ours were upgraded.)

    Players in: 7 (8)

    Players out: 9 ( 8 )

    Aim for next year is as I said to challenge for a european spot. And maybe do well in the cup. Our neighbours, Odd, holds the norwegian record for most cup wins. They have won the cup 12 times. So it is time to start chasing them, and go for 13.

    Well done ThfcJoe, excellent achievement.


    Another season of progress Taunton, excellent finish too. Bet it's a nice feeling overtaking your neighbours also.

    Looking at that table Rosenborg are going to be pretty tough to get past.

    Yeah. After they lent us their stadium, I felt it was the least we could do was to overtake them

    Rosenborg is in a class of their own. They will be a tough nut to crack.

    I remember from one of my saves last year, finding it really difficult to overcome them. They must have a bigger budget than everyone else and reputation alone is enough to attract the best players. It was fun getting closer each season though.

    Europe is a rollercoaster.

    In the CL Qualifiers we met Benfica. Lost 3-2 away, and drew 0-0 at home. Went to the UEFA Cup 4th Qual. Round against Rosenborg. We lost in Norway by 4-1, and everything seemed to be over. At home, we hammered them 5-0, and are through to the EL group stages!

    Take that as a good omen as I have to overcome Rosenborg in my save to get anywhere in this challenge.

    Well done on that finish Taunton, I actually found Rosenborg easy to overcome when I was Tromso on my first save on this years game, though to be fair I had managed to keep Kara and Yttergard Jenssen whilst you could say Rosenborg have weakened in FM terms with the losses of Annan and Skjedbred over the last 12 months. There was always plenty of talent about in Norway for very reasonable prices

    NK Krka Novo Mesto



    Season 2012-13 Update

    Our first season was a relatively unspectacular one. We plodded through from August to May, without anything exciting really happening. There wasn't a good run of form to speak of nor, thankfully, was there a period in which we went more than four games without at least a point. We managed a run of four games unbeaten just before the winter break, although admittedly, two of those were against the weakest of opposition.

    || Table | Graph ||

    One final positive to note, results-wise, is that our biggest defeat of the season was outdone by a slightly bigger win. A nice 5-0 win over Tromejnik. All good stuff.

    I brought in two more signings between the end of August and the close of the January window, one of whom, Matko Obradovic, ended up requesting a transfer. The other, Alji Ljatifi, played a big part towards the end of the season, scoring twice to give us a survival-sealing win over Kalcer Radomlje. Both players came from scouting recommendations in the Backroom Advice meetings.

    || Transfers ||

    Player of the Season: Zan Cankar - A solid defender, turned in some decent performances and contributed to the cause with 4 league goals.

    Top Scorer: Mitja Barboric - With 7 goals, he turned out to be a key player this season, but I never really seemed to notice him. For that reason, the third player I'll single out is...

    My Personal Favourite: Tadej Fekonja - The striker I took more notice of throughout the season, and with 2 MOTMs, just behind Cankar's three, he had a good season overall, contributing 6 goals. Unfortunately I favoured Ljatifi when he came in, so Fekonja was limited to the frequent substitute appearance.

    Some other titbits:
    Finances
    Confidence
    Contract

    I have three signings coming in pretty shortly, who are expired contracts from the league below. My scouts seem to rate them highly, so it can't hurt. A huge number of players have left on free transfers after I decided they weren't needed anymore, leaving me with a very small squad indeed. Fingers crossed for an injury free season and the odd talent coming up in the transfer window to add a bit of bulk to the side again.

    Code:
    Season  |            League            |  Position  |    Europe    |      Cup    |  Achievement  |Top Scorer   
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------        
    12/13   |  Slovenian Second Division  |   8th/10    |      -      |      -      |    Survival     | Mitja Barboric (7)

    Drew. Karlslunds IF. Swedish First Division North. 2014.

    Table - Much better season from the team this year, only losing 1 game this year, if only we turned some of those draws into wins, then I would have been much happier.

    Graph - We spent most of the seaosn in the top 3, with a few weeks in first, but ultimately the draws proved to be our undoing and we had to settle for 2nd.

    The Squad - Our better players from thiss eason were Samuel Adams, superb between the sticks, was better than all of my other keepers so I will look to try and tie him down for a few more seasons before selling him; Enock Frompong was our rock in the centre of defence, not only was he a rock in the centre, but he caused problems for the opposition at set pieces, getting a few goals along the way; Aleem O'Balogun was our star player up front, causing trouble one the wing an popping up with a few goals as well.

    Transfers

    Finances - Still losing money, and fast.

    The Promotion/Relegation final

    Me

    Aims for next season:


    I think with the right additions, we could make a charge for promotion, but if that is not the case, then mid-table would do nicely.

    KF - End of Season 2016

    Club Info ~ Facilities ~ Finances


    League Table - 1st
    Another walk in the park for my assistant manager. Still no 100% winning season, but I'll forgive him that.

    Champions League
    Well. Cruised through the qualifying rounds, knocking out Honka, Sheriff and Crvena Zvezda. Then drawn with Arsenal, Marseille and Shakhtar. We were spanked at Arsenal, but then drew with Marseille and beat Shaktar home and away. We then faced Arsenal at home and had our hearts broken. Even more gutting was seeing the table afterwards and seeing that if we'd won, we'd have been clear of Arsenal and through to the knockout stages. That left us needing to win in Marseille, which we had no hope of. And so it proved, we were outplayed from start and one of the great sporting travesties of all time saw us through.

    Sadly, we didn't get much further. Losing out over two legs to Valencia was no great dishonour, we'd clearly used up our luck in the last leg after giving them an almighty scare in the return leg.

    Do I go into the Europa league now? I'm not sure. Doesn't look like it.

    Cups

    Retained both the domestic trophies, plus what I presume is the Super Cup/Charity shield.

    Other points

    We move to the new ground in 3 months, as it's been delayed.
    Starting to deliberately blood some youngsters and offload the fringe players so that my assistant has no choice but to use them!
    Training and youth facilities have been upgraded at last - it's not like we haven't got the money!

    Icelandic builders! For goodness' sake. We're already 3 months behind schedule, so we're going to miss the whole season. Hopefully it'll be on line for the Champions League group games.

    End of season report 2018/19
    Table | Past positions | Squad | Finances | Transfers


    A great season for us. Domestically we were only one loss away from going the entire season undefeated, and that loss came in one of the last games in the season when I gave the fringe players some games. We also did brilliant in Europe getting to the Champions League final, but succumbing to Real Madrid in the final. All in all a great season and I sure hope this will increase our status and reputation.

    Out third effort at the Champions League was a great sucess. As the past years we started in the 2nd qualifying round and beat Flamurtari of Albania, Shkendija of Macedonia and Spara Prague of the Czech Republic to go to the group stage. Here we got a rather tough group as we drew Sporting of Portugal, Juventus of Italy and FC Bayern of Germany, but we managed to get trough behind FC Bayern. In the 2st knockout round we got Atlético Madrid, but we dispatched them aswell. The quarters gave us PSG, but they couldn't handle coming to Hungary as we beat them 3-0 at home. When we then managed to hold them off to 1-0 in Paris we were through to the semis. Our final opponent before the final was Arsenal. They beat us 1-0 at our place, but we got back at the Emirates and showed our true colors in an epic 6-4 win. Our final match for the season was the Champions League final against Real Madrid. We got off to a slow start and they controlled the first quarted. As we tried to get our footing Higuain showed his skill as he ran past past out defence and slotted it home. At 41 minutes Poli of Real Madrid got sent off for a second yellow card and at the 45th minute mark we got our equalizer through centre back Mansouri from a corner. As everyone thought it was half time Higuain popped up again and got his second. We tried our best the last 45 minutes, but could not find the net as Real Madrid held everyone back to try to contain their lead. In the end they were successful and they came out triumphant.

    It turns out the Szuperkupa isn't played if the same team wins the league and Magyar Kupa, so I won it again by default. Both the Ligakupa and Magyar Kupa were easy as we triumphed in both.

    The most important player this season has been Badreddine Mansouri, our brilliant centre back who's also a great threat at corners and freekicks, Petr Jurcik, our defensive lying playmaker, Seydou Sanou and Nkosinathi Mabaso, our two brilliant goalscorers.

    Welcome dj clark boy. Good luck!

    Just noticed a little thing. Your rep was "Automatic", it should be Sunday League, but I don't know if it's available in Greece?

    I don't think it makes any real difference to the reputation - automatic takes the rep of the lowest league loaded, and with the bottom Greek division loaded that's going to be pretty low.

    Here's report from my SV Schwechat we are in 3rd season (playing almost nothing, few hours per week, when i'm not at work i build my new house), when last year we won Austrian 1st division and so we qualify to 3rd round of CL. Because board didn' give money i sold few players and get some for free but we are still -5.000€ p/w. We won in 3rd round both matches against bosnian club and then in last round we died on field and got promotion to group stage with away goal rule against rosenborg. And then we had a lot of injuries (because i change good training with crap one). In group stage we get mission impossible group: Bayern, Real and CSKA...our score: lost all 6 games with goaldifference 5-24!!! but we are more expirienced now and 7.1M € richer while boardroom still wont give me money for transfers... In austrian tipp 3 Bundesliga we are still first but 8th club is only 6points behind (the bad results in league and maybe in CL are because i tweak my tactic and set all players to have full creativity-what i had noticed after 10 or more matches).

    I'm finding it much more difficult to win away from home in our first season in the Adecco and despite not being at our real home ground (Sola Stadion) due to our board increasing the capacity, our home form has been first class, maybe we could rent Stavanger's SIF Stadion a little longer!

    Am I correct in that when playing in Holland there are only two leagues?

    Been away, but nice to see everyone making progress.

    I am suffering from the second season syndrome, and Tollnes have to fight to stay in the Premier this season, rather than pushing for Europe.

    Blame it on team gelling

    Falling way behind on my updates, so here is a few brief updates:

    Drew. Karlslund IF. First Division Elite. 2015

    Table - Easy, way too easy for us, now we are on to the big league.

    Swedish Cup Final - Our first cup triumph, which I am delighted about, and we have our first taste of Europe next season.

    Drew. Karlslunds IF. Swedish Premier Division. 2016

    Table - Lol, as with last season, way too simple for us, only the leaders Malmo proved to be any challenge, and yet, if we had beaten them, or drawn less game, then we would have been crowned champions and not them.

    Drew. Karlsunds IF. Swedish Premier Division. 2017

    Table - Lol x2, Same amount of points as last season, but this time we were crowned champions, and with ease might I add, Champions League next season should prove to be quite exciting, my aim will be the Group Stages.

    Club Info ~ Facilities ~ Finances



    League Table - Fixtures - 1st
    Lost twice! Oh wow. But still won the league by a big margin.

    Key Players
    Vladimir - Has come into it more this season, contributing a lot more to goals.
    Seydou Traore - More of the same from the big man. Is injury prone though and gets suspended a fair amount.
    Diego Martinez - Brought in to bolster the attack and made his mark immeadiatly.
    Mame Diedhiou - Most improved player, score vital goals from the wing. Well done Mame

    Champions League - Fixtures - Group Table
    Overcame Spartak Moscow before beign stopped by Barcelona. Seydou Traore was suspended and therefore could have gone through but if we had been a bit more safe at home we could have snatched victory. We lost on aggregate, 7-5 in the end. Barcelona went on to win the Champions League.

    Serbian Cup - Fixtures
    Putting reserve team out in final almost cost me. But still won it!

    Random Points
    - Takeover! But no investment.. like I need any!
    - Another upgrade to training facilities so I think they should be World Class after this

    End of season report 2019/20
    Table | Past positions | Squad | Finances | Transfers


    We've done it! Budafok has won the Champions League! We came close last season, but this time we didn't lose it this time. We got started in the group stage this year, as the Hungarian league reputation has increased enough. But we got drawn in a very hard group containing of Chelsea, Benfica and Rapid Wien in addition to ourselves. We managed to barely scrap through after winning the last match 4-1 against Rapid Wien while Chelsea beat Benfica in Portugal. In the 1st knockout round we got one of the better draws as our opponent was PSG and we dispatched them 3-1 before drawing Milan in the quarter finals. A 1-0 win at home was followed up with a 4-2 win in Italy. Our opponent in the semis turned out to be Atlético Madrid. They beat us 3-2 in Spain, but a 2-1 win at home put us through to the final on away goals. As it turned out our final obstacle was Arsenal. The final was an evenly played game with Arsneal having the upper hand. Still we managed to get a late goal to seal an incredible victory for Budafok.

    The cups in Hungary are starting to annoy me as there are two legs in almost every round in both aswell as a group stage in the Ligakupa. We won the Ligakupa with ease and should have won the Magyar Kupa aswell, but the players couldn't find the net as the game was played two days after the final of the Champions League.

    The most important player this season has been Seydou Sanou, Petr Jurcik, Julián Pavoni and Matija Domjancic.

    Just a quick question. If I resign from Budafok, add a new nation and remove hungary. Can I take over a newly promoted team in the lowest division in another country and continue the save?

    Gundo - Sola Fotball - Season Review 2015

    Adeccoligaen Final Positon.

    It turned out to be another great campaign for us and a finish of 5th spot was far beyond my expectations. The Adeccoligaen is basically a story of the Professional clubs and the clubs that aren't, I do think that we'll be closer again next term though. Tactically we changed our approach to a Man United style 4-4-1-1, after ten games just to freshen things up and my assistant says apparently it suits us better than the formation of 3 previous years - 4-3-3. I'd even found a few young players with awesome potential to play the Rooney role in Godwin Bossman and Daniel Storvik. Since the switch to short passing from last season aswel we are playing a much more attractive brand of football. And the real bossman pic.

    Sindre Fossan didn't get as much game time, naturally because I thought he'd find it tough going. He did notch this tidy effort in our second to last game agaisnt Nybergsund. This goal also earned him goal of the month!
    My high expectations for Jonas Olsen largely fell by the wayside as he missed large parts through injury, even with the injuries as an excuse he disappointed.
    Alexander Střlĺs a classy left winger we picked up from Vard Haugesund had a great season and went on to finish top scorer.

    Average attendance: 682, however much of the season we played at Stavanger's SIF Stadion.

    Next season: Fairly positive we'll be able to compete for one of the two automatic promotion places this season, one or two top notch acquisitions will be needed for that to happen though.

    THE FUTURE IS NOW

    Vurogj's Belgian mission | Sprimont | Belgian Second League | 2013-14 Season



    League : 3rd | Progress Chart
    Promotion Playoffs : 2nd
    Belgian Cup : 6th Round

    Transfer Report

    A mostly successful set of transfers, everyone I bought managed 25 or more appearances, bar Tom Proost, who broke his foot.

    Well, the progress worm doesn't really show the whole story, as our form was massively inconsistent. Scoring a lot of goals, but never finding any consistency in defense. Both 4-5-1 and 4-4-2 were used, tending towards 4-4-2 later in the season to try and keep my second choice striker happy (Legros won't last forever). My wingers were amazing the whole year though. Voskanyan managing 34 assists in 40 games.
    The playoffs were always likely to be hard, and despite Legros' best efforts (8 goals in 4 and a half games before a niggly injury), it wasn't to be.

    Current Squad

    Up front and wide I'm very happy, midfield is okay(ish), the defence is still a horror show. Needs work.
    Masis Voskanyan
    Guillaume Legros

    Finances aren't great, but 17 televised games at 6k a shot makes a difference, as does a board willing to pump money in to the club. Next season is our last at Stade du Tultay, after that I hope for better gates and gate receipts. We've been at or near 80% full for our games this season, and the good league performance should help improve this further.

    Short term plan from last season
    "Gut the current squad, as at least half of it isn't ready for Second League football. Continue the bargain hunting. Find better staff. Finish mid-table."

    3 out of 4 achieved, and wildy over-achieved on the 4th. I'm delighted with the season.

    Short term plan for next season

    Promotion, and turn pro, it will be the only fitting end for our last year at the old ground, and likely Legros' last decent season (he's 32 in November). Next season should see some squad stability, which I'll be pleased about. Agents have come up trumps with two players I trialed and then agreed to sign, Eduardo and Alejandro Rotundo who both bring much needed pace and determination to the squad. There may be further movement, as the board has given me 2k more in the wage budget. Maybe I'll even spend some money on a player at last.

    Eduardo
    Alejandro Rotundo

    Belgium in the world

    Some fine work from Standard, getting past PSG in their Champions League group means we overtake Greece for 10th. Ukraine (and the next extra European place) are some way ahead in 9th though.

    Code:
    Season	Division	Position 	Cup	Europe	Other					Pro League ranking	Belgium coefficient
    2012-13	3A		1st		4th	N/A	Promoted as champions			19th			11th
    2013-14	2		3rd		6th	N/A	Second in promotion playoff group	16th			10th

    Sure thing. I'll start something else then. At least I have finished this challenge for a change!

    You could always continue the save on another continent and go for all 5 champions league trophies?

    Yeah, I could, but I don't have the New Zealand db added when I started, so I can only go for 4 of them....

    Edit: Never mind, didn't think about that properly. I guess I should read the thread :-)

    What is everyone's nationality count in their squad?

    32 Norwegian.
    2 Danish

    I need to add a couple of Swedes.

    13 Belgium
    3 Armenia
    1 Brazil, Burundi, Holland, Italy, Nigeria, Uruguay.

    Yes, my squad is that small. It's mid-July, I'll go buy some more immediately.

    Gundo. Great season. And I am impressed that you manage it with so many norwegians. I rely too much on foreigners, don't seem to find good enough domestic players.

    Xaw. Congratulations on completing the challenge. Well done!

    Cheers Taunton, it was nearly all Norsk players until I signed the Bossman. I did also release a Finnish winger in the close season.

    KF - End of Season 2017

    Facilities ~ Finances


    League Table - 1st
    Finally got a 100% season. We're too good for the league, but all of my fellow Icelandic teams won their first games in Europe, which is going to help us in the medium term if we're ever going to win the Champions League.

    Champions League
    Walked through to the group stages, where we were paired with -

    Barcelona
    Inter Milan
    Werder Bremen

    Great. Thanks.

    We actually took the lead in both games against Barcelona, which was amazing. Werder Bremen lost all 6 games and we took a Europa League place.

    We got drawn against Leverkusen and had our bottoms handed to us.

    Feel like we were quite unlucky with our draws, we've got a decent ranking in Europe, so hopefully at some point we'll move up to be a 3rd seed, rather than a 4th seed, things'll improve a little after that.

    Cups

    Retained both the domestic trophies, plus what I presume is the Super Cup/Charity shield.

    Infrastructure

    We are now in our new ground, holding 8,550. We sold out in our European games, which gave the highest crowd ever seen on Icelandic soil.
    Our training and youth facilities were upgraded in the off season to Good and Adequate respectively, we're now undergoing a Ł5.5m upgrade to the training facilities which will be ready for next season.

    Squad building

    I'm starting to build up a good pool of Icelandic kids, which I'm going to use with the hope of getting my first Icelandic international through my youth squad. Hopefully that'll be Bjarnason who looks immense and is now first choice.
    None of my decent players will sign new contracts when they're coming towards the end of their deals. That means each year I'm selling off 4-5 of my best players (including getting Ł11m for Lars Bock, who was immense).
    My interested list is improving though, so I'm actually strengthening my squad whilst also making a net profit on the transfers.
    This means I've got Ł20m in the bank with nothing to do with it.

    Won the league again, scoring many goals and conceding few. As is the case.

    Key Players
    Anzouamana Kone - Got 40 assists this year
    Seydou Traore - More of the same really. Keeps getting suspended though.

    Champions League
    Reached the semis after beating Juve and Inter but lost out to Barcelona YET AGAIN

    Serbian Cup
    Yes FM, of course you can send 14 players on international duty for the Serbian Cup final. Luckily I won on penalties vs 2nd Division side Hajduk Kula

    Bad luck Mafino. You are so close now.

    I have gone twelve games without a win. A nightmare. But finally won against Moss, and am confident about staying up. But this has been a bad season for me.

    Five games left in our season and we are just one point off the automatic promotion places, so it's all to play for!

    This guy; Sindre Fossan, I've mentioned him a few times for his decent performances in the division below despite his relatively poor attributes. Well this season he's been given more game time due to a long term injury to our inspirational captain and he's come in and had a storming season so far, netting some very important goals.

    SV Schwechat - 4th season 15/16

    After i won Tipp3 Bundesliga again finally i got some cash from my chairman, he gave me 3M € for transfers (after club got more than 7M€ from Champions league) so i changed almost whole squad, sold 2 players for 2M and 1 for 3M, and brought few for free and some bought (aml/st Kevin Harbottle for 4,8M from Chile). So i hope we go further in CL (last year i lost all 6 matches in group stage) and looking forward to draw for last qualifaying stage... and we got AC Milan 1st leg at home lost 1-2 so we go back to the reality and continue our european way in Europa league...

    one question...our stadium has capacity of 8000 but only 2000 seats (this season 1 domestic match sellout=220k€, but in europe only 2000) is any way to get another 6000 seated-what to ask board- or is only one solution - new stadium???

    I haven't played on FIFA12 a great deal since FM12 came out, I haven't found a game yet that has taken my interest away from FM/CM so it'd be interesting if I bought Skyrim... Heard plenty of positive stuff about Skyrim aswel and must say I am very tempted.

    League - Fixtures - 1st
    Drawing only 1 game and winning the rest, still waiting for that flawless campaign!

    Key Players
    Many injuries to a variety of players means that bizarrely there are no stand out players at this stage!

    Champions League - Fixtures - Group Stage Table
    Topped the group consisting of Inter, Sporting & Olympiakos and got Ajax in the next round! Let's hope this is the season that I can win this annoying thing at the 6th/7th time of trying!

    Serbian Cup - Fixtures
    Easy draw so far, scraped through v Red Star on penalties though!

    Random Points
    - Splashed out Ł20m on a CB that I had previously at the club! Mainly to bolster the back line for the Champions League

    Just won the treble with SJK in Finland, managed to make the group stages of the Euro Cup but were still way out of our depth there, have another chance at qualifying for the Champions League group stages next year but the team is a long way from competing on a European level.
    Still, were the best team in Finland and I fully expect another treble this coming season.

    Mafino, is that club info screen out of date? Your media predicted finish is 13th, which would be absurd after 5+ league titles.

    Does anyone know where it would say that your club is building a stadium? It says nothing int he facilities section but when I go to the board and hover above the greyed out 'Build New Stadium' button it says 'This is currently being actioned' :s I must have missed the news for it because it's been like that for a while

    I'll have a quick look on mine Mafino, our stadium is due at the end of my current season, so I should be able to find it.

    EDIT : It's showing up fine for me in the Information -> Facilities screen. Have you got a screen of your facilities page we can see please?

    My sincerest apologies, I have missed out a season. (2024/25) The reason I didn't do an update for it was because I was just infuriated with the challenge! With the domestic side of things no longer being a challenge, I only really play for the 12/13 European games in the season, so it does get tedious... especially if your team takes a step back and crashes out at the Quarter Final stage against bogey team Barcelona in the Champions League! Anyway, here is the update for the season that followed...


    FK Zemun - End of Season 2025/26

    Club Info ~ Facilities ~ Finances



    League - Fixtures 1st half - Fixtures 2nd half - 1st
    Almost flawless, drawing one game again. I found myself in the position that, bar 3 or 4 teams, I could put out any combination of players and get a relatively easy match, so this was a perfect opportunity to bring out the youngsters. Does get a bit tedious after a while but that's 8 leagues and closing in on Partizan's 18 titles! Haha.

    Champions League - Fixtures
    Finally 1st seed! But it didn't give me an easier draw as I was placed with Atletico Madrid, Marseille and Olympiakos. A group a saw off by winning every game!
    I then met Juventus in the next round, tough opposition. They dispatched us 3-2 in the first leg but we claimed a lucky 2-0 win in the 2nd leg which saw us through... to face AC Milan. Playing the away leg first again, we were utterly outclassed 2-1 in the end and I thought the campaign was over... but cue a 4-0 thrashing at home and I was proved wrong!
    Chelsea saw off Inter Milan to meet us in the semi finals, I had never played Chelsea before so I wasn't too sure how to play it. Luckily we got the away leg first, and we actually managed a 1-1 draw that we really should have won! And because everyone was fit and not suspended we had the quality to oversee Chelsea 4-1 in the second leg!! I did it!!!

    I reached the final, and I was up against Barcelona. To be at the stage where I can call them my bogey team is magnificent, so at this stage I was genuinely skeptical of a win. I didn't even know how to play it. Over the years, I had crushed Arsenal and Zenit by 7 goal margins by starting off Attacking with high pressure, but this was Barcelona... so I played it safe with Counter...

    Barcelona didn't show up. Either that or we just wanted it more. Seydou scored in the 9th minute... and again in the 15th... and it was one-way traffic from the first whistle. They offered nothing!! We ended up beating Barcelona 4-0 to take become Serbia's 2nd ever team to win the Champions League, after Red Star in 1991!!!

    Serbian Cup - Fixtures
    Lost in the final due to internationals, yet again. This surely must be a bug, every Serbian Cup final has been like this!

    Key Players
    Apologies, I don't have screenshots as I have started the next season already, but I'll give you a quick run down:
    (GK) Pierre Delcroix - Only 20 and is a master between the sticks, very calm and collected and concedes few, which in Serbia isn't difficult
    (CB) Malte Sander - Great heading ability means that he is a threat when going forward...
    (LB) Anzoumana Kone - ...and when you have a LB with 19 for Corners and 20 for Crossing, aerial ability is vital. Can't believe Kone is 30 already, he's entering his 10th season at the club and has amassed 190 assists in 228 games, absolutely magnificent player.
    (MC) Rayan Afkir - I really admire the Moroccan's patience, I kept sending him out on loan to my non-league affiliated team for 4 seasons in a row, I don't know how he didn't go insane! His patience has paid off though, what a great little player
    (MC) Vladimir - The Brazilian Frank Lampard (with pace). Awesome long shots, free kicks, passing, a club legend in general
    (LW) Mame Diedhiou - Similar to Afkir, had to be very patient and did want to leave occasionally but once he got into the first team.... oh boy
    (ST) Seydou Traore - Absolute legend. 369 goals in 327 games, outstanding from the Frenchman. Yes, it is the Serbian league but to maintain that is pure gold. 68 caps and 66 goals for France tops it all off to be fair. Don't know how R. Madrid didn't poach him!

    Best Eleven

    Random Points
    - Challenge complete! But I feel a bit empty....
    - Firstly, the stadium never changed. We had 12,000 the whole way through. During this season and last, the board claimed that a stadium was being built but nothing showed up in the boardroom progress screen or the facilities screen. After I updated to 12.1 though, and I should be getting a stadium next summer. Doesn't say capacity though
    - Secondly, a little bit disappointed with the youth set up. I have SOTA youth facilities, excellent junior coaching but only 1 player made it to the first team. A 2nd play, Nikitovic showed potential but that was about it.
    - No matter how hard I tried in Europe, I couldn't bump up Serbia's coefficient enough to get loads of European places for Serbia... but it doesn't matter because they all did cack anyway :/
    - Not sure what to do with myself now!

    I think I'm gonna move away, falling out of love with Serbia, nothing really improved in my time there which is a massive shame, I'm going to attempt to dominate the world! And then one day return to Zemun when they've been relegated without me hehe

    Gundo - Sola Fotball - Season Review 2016

    Adeccoligaen Final Positon.

    Managed to take this seasons promotion race to the final game of the season, but it wasn't to be as we lost to our bogey team again (Asker Fotball) and promotion rivals secured the points they needed. So a 5th finish for the second season running was secured. In the Cupen we went down to a 4-0 defeat against Tippeligaen Molde at home in the 3rd round.

    Sindre Fossan; my favourite Sola player for sure had an excellent campaign and was potent left or right wing positions.
    Jonas Olsen a slight improvement on last season, I am now convinced this guy isn't the answer to my goalscoring problems.
    Alexander Střlĺs our newly appointed captain had a dire season and had 3 month injury lay-off and his attributes have been servilely hit.
    Daniel Storvik the youngster I signed from second division Ĺlgĺrd mid way through last season has come on leaps and bounds and is now the creative hub of the team in middle of the park.
    Vice captain Tom Omar Sande had a storming season yet again at centre back. He also got the fans player of the year.
    Top scorer fell to the unlikely Espen Maldal, 3 pens and 6 from corners earned him the title.

    Average attendance: 896, much improved on previous season, up by 214.

    Next season: If we can find a goalscoring forward that will aid our promotion chase for sure.

    Taunton - Tollnes - Season review - 2020 - Norwegian Premier division

    Table (12th)

    A terrible season. It looks like the other teams took us more seriously, so we got punished a lot this time. Lots of narrow defeats, bad morale, and at one point we went twelve games without a win.

    Strangely enough, we were never in the relegation fight, thanks to the teams below us being even more miserable.

    So, only thing to do, forget about this season, strengthen the squad and build on our seson finish which were promising.



    Best player and top scorer: Tomasz Frankowski, This polish striker can be extremely good. Suffered a bit from poor team mates, but did incredibly well this season.

    Economy: Not bad. Spent more on wages this season, and that is taking its toll on the economy.

    Key: This season (Last season)

    Wage budget: Nkr 157.500 p/w (77.500 Nkr p/w)

    Transfer budget: 14 million Nkr p/w (0 Nkr p/w)

    (For pounds, just divide the number with ten)

    Av. attendance: 2988 (4285)

    Players in: 18 (7)

    Players out: 10 ( 9 )

    Aim for next year is to perform better and actually start getting serious about winning some important trophies.

    Mafino: Big congrats for completing the challenge, and with a win over Barca in the final as well.

    Gundo: Feel we experience similar progress. I am sure you will end up in the top two and clinch promotion next season.

    SK Austria Klagenfurt 2024/25

    The league was a lot easier this year, Rapid Wien pushed me all the way last year but not this so it was an easy victory in league and cup, so onto Europe where we started in the group stage of the champions league.

    It didn't start well but this is a tough group, then we had a chance to meet Marseilles and the goals were flowing and victory over Bayern secured 2nd place.

    Code:
    Austria Klagenfurt 0-3 Real Madrid
    Bayern Munich 2-1 Austria Klagenfurt
    Olympique Marseilles 2-3 Austria Klagenfurt
    Austria Klagenfurt 7-2 Olympique Marseilles
    Real Madrid 3-0 Austria Klagenfurt
    Austria Klagenfurt 3-0 Bayern Munich
    Next up was Manure, it was pretty dull tie that we managed to sneak through.

    Next up was more premier league opposition in the form of Chelsea who went down much easier (note how many goals Faty Anyona has scored in these games).

    By now I was in the semi final, just me, Benfica, Lyon and Atletico Madrid remained, I thought I could go all the way but Brazilian star, Diego, plays for Atletico and from my group, I do very badly against teams from Madrid.

    League: Winners
    Squad: Champions
    Top scorer: Faty Anyona, special mention to Denis De Luca
    Highest rating: Faty Anyona
    Top players: Faty Anyona, Denis De Luca, Diego Joao, Souleymane Konan

    THE FUTURE IS NOW

    Vurogj's Belgian mission | Sprimont | Belgian Second League | 2014-15 Season



    League : 2nd | Progress chart | Fixtures
    Pro League playoff : Winners | Fixtures
    Belgian Cup : Winners

    Transfer report

    Still no money spent on players, the usual ex-Pro League team youth players and agent offerings make up this years list. One of my scouts finally found Turkey in January, so I took a punt on three youngsters (two of which are full backs). Mlungisi Morfou is a frightening purchase, and I desperately hope I can keep him here for as long as possible. As predicted in last years report, Eduardo and Rotundo were excellent purchases, coming 1st and 2nd in Division 2 Young player of the year. Rotundo also did this, which was nice.

    Mlungisi Morfou

    Season report

    After a slow start, with too many draws, we hit our stride and pretty much toasted the division, scoring over 100 goals in the process. The exception to this was KV Mechelen, who were outstanding from the start. Despite our 27 game unbeaten streak, Mechelen's 30 games unbeaten kept them top. On the last day of the regular season, we started one point behind them, and for 13 glorious minutes were top, but Mechelen hammered Deinze 1-4 to secure the title.
    The playoffs were just as tense, losing players to youth internationals meant we lost the home game to Mons, but they were back for the away game and a 1-1 draw secured the top playoff spot and promotion.
    The cup run was frankly silly. I can't even believe I'm typing this because it's so dumb. Home draws helped, as did drawing recently promoted Pro league teams. Division 2 Wetteren in the quarters came after they knocked out Antwerp. The semi-final comeback was entirely due to Eduardo, who came off the bench after Legros got injured and scored two and made another. The final was as daft a game as I've ever seen, if I told you about it, you wouldn't believe me. This means we are in Europe next season. Yikes!

    Squad report

    It feels a bit bloated, and it's inevitably going to take a hammering over the summer, as I try and make a Pro League team. Up front is fine, in fact I've been retraining some strikers as wingers just to be able to give them pitch time and keep them happy. I've only really got one full back I'm happy with (Rotundo), and the CD and CM positions need work. Maybe the Turkish full backs I picked up in January will develop fast. They'd better, I need them. Legros has finally peaked at 32, and it's going to be all downhill from now on. He's been an amazing player for me, and I'm going to try and make him staff at some point.

    Guillaume Legros

    Short term plan from last season

    "Promotion, turn pro, squad stability, spend money on a player". Well, I got the promotion and turned professional, but the squad is still in flux, and I haven't spent money yet, although I do have a little cash should I want to.

    Short term plan for next season

    Stay up. Build a professional club. Easy.
    The new stadium is complete, a 5385 capacity ground with 1346 seats. I should start bugging the board to revamp the other facilities now we're pro as well I guess.

    Belgium in the world

    Not a great year for Belgian clubs in Europe, only Brugge made the Champions League group stages, and came bottom behind Schalke, PSG and Man United (third, ha ha). Shaktar's semi final in the Europa League will hurt our efforts to catch Ukraine in the coefficients.

    Yes he is still happy, last season he asked about moving club but I said the club could develop and he was happy again. I only gave him the new contract very recently, joint highest paid player along with Joao.

    NK Krka Novo Mesto


    Quite a late update this one, I've been at 1st September for nearly a week now, but never got round to posting this transfer update. Keeping two servers up for a few groups of friends leaves little time for this challenge, but I am keen to get through more seasons, being on holiday now.

    A lot of my transfer activity was sealed towards the end of the previous season, when I scoured the non-league Slovenian teams for some quality players whose contracts were due to expire. I picked out three decent targets who were interested, two of which were from Sencur, a club playing a level below me. They were Dejan Kern and Luka Pavlin, while Dejan Misic also moved on a free.

    I signed Matic Seferovic a few days into the window, and then splashed a whopping Ł5K on Marko Jakolic to bring him to Krka from another Slovenian club.

    The season has started steadily, with 3 points from three games. I can't see relegation being a possibility this year, the promoted sides, Izola and Odranci don't look like they'll provide much threat. Another season of mid-table fun looks on the agenda.

    Summer Transfers, 2013
    Squad

    My formation gets yet more attacking, with the 'score more than them' approach seeming the way forward.

    Will be back in June.

    Tiller's European Adventure 2017


    Following our success in the League we entered the Euro Cup knockout stages. This was a great opportunity for the club to press on and develop as a club. Here is an overview of our adventure.

    S
    o Tiller, on the first attempt make it through to the Group Stages.........so Group B it is then!
    As you can see this was one hell of a tough group, so just a couple of decent results would be nice.
    Our opening game against Bayern Munich was by far our best performance.
    Nobody saw this result coming!
    Another good result was a home draw against Roma. All in all a pretty pleasing first foray into Europe. Whilst this campaign was underway we managed to do the
    double domestically and another attempt at European glory was afoot.

    European Cup Qualifying Stage Second Knockout round -

    European Cup Champions Playoff

    Tiller make t through to the group stages for the second successive season. This saw us drawn in a Group alongside Inter Milan, SLB and CSKA Moscow. If we were able to perform well at home and pick up a decent away result or two, we might just qualify.
    Group Table!

    So through we went and qualified to face Paris Saint-Germain. The first leg was at home and we needed a good performance to take on the road. We played really well and managed to win the home leg 2-0. This meant that we had a chance of progressing if the defence could hold up to the test. The Second Leg was a bit of an interesting affair, and the final aggregate score was.....................
    8-2
    Quarter Final Stage and we are drawn against a tough Roma side. The result against Paris had given us a great confidence boost and off we went full of self-belief. So the Quarter Final Result was not overly surprising!

    So, here we have it a Semi Final draw against Arsenal. The boys had somehow managed to progress to the final 4! Well i won't drag this out anymore, here's the result......................
    Tiller v Arsenal!


    The final will be against Barcelona.........wish me luck!!!!

    I will be loading up and playing later, hopefully be able to post a positive result a bit later...

    Well done on surviving the new board Gundo, always a horrible few clicks when that arrives.

    Thfcjoe, sorry to be a pain, but as a fellow Belgian league adventurer, I'd love to see some details from your continued exploits. Where are you finding players, is your youth setup productive, that sort of thing.

    Brettney's Trip to Iceland! Season: 2013.

    Did alot better this season, an awesome run saw us stay around the 2nd/3rd spots most of the season and snatch the Title with a game to go!

    Transfers|Finances|Confidence

    Again i signed alot of players, really need to get rid of the guys who haven't cut it this year. Quite a few foreigners again that have been offered by agents have come in along with quite a few good young Scandanavians.

    Considering giving this ago, finally got bored of my only save so far on this Fm. Any suggestions on which league would be fun? Very eager to get a new save up and running.

    Star player Daniel Storvik finally signs new Sola deal after months of talks breaking down, must say it's a huge relief, hope to keep this boy around as long as possible.

    Sola Nationality Count (2017)
    27 Norwegians
    2 Swedes
    2 Danish.

    (Including youth).
