    Default How hard could it be to start your own club? A FM2012 Story

    Info about the game and story: I'm going to make this topic like a story, but I want to use screenshots so I had to open it here, plus I like this part of the forums better and enjoy reading so this will be an interesting experience for me. I edited an unplayable club from the Turkish 4th division to Suadiye Sports Club. Suadiye is the name of the district I live in Istanbul. I didn't edit much, I cleared the squad and although I ticked the add key staff box, I guess because the team wasn't playable at the beginning of the game, there is not a single staff at the club. I made the chairman my mum, as part of the story lol, and made her an underwriter sugardaddy in case things go crazily wrong. However, I won't abuse my budget with 48 months transfer payments and stuff, we have only 170k pounds in the bank and we're predicted to be 17th. I also tweaked the fans to fit the actual profile of the people I live in, to fit the story. You'll see. So, moving on to the story..

    The story begins:


    My history, and the club's: I was born in May 27th, 1986, to a family of doctors. My mother, Funda Sağın, was one of the best doctors in Turkey. She was the doctor of the rich, she new powerful people. When I was starting college, she decided to make an investment,. She started her own hospital, and with the high-profile patients who she treated before, and who stayed loyal to her, the hospital growed quite fast. She has become one of the rich people she used to treat, well she still treats them but now she doesn't have to talk too formally. Due to our financial status, and my mother's love for the district, we live in Suadiye, a district of rich people, on Baghdat Avenue, which is basically the territory of Fenerbahçe. I on the other hand, was a die hard Galatasaray fan, I hated Fenerbahçe, so did my mum. So she pulled a few strings, and talked to the other rich neighbors about a grand investment. A football club. One that will grow to be a true rival of Fenerbahçe, and perhaps one day, become a major club in Europe. They were ambitious, and they were rich enough. On May 27th, 2011, as my birthday and graduation gift (I graduated from a business school), my mum started the club. We hired (that's like buying in Turkey because the government never takes back a stadium from a team) a stadium of 5500 people, with 5000 seats and 500 terraces, for a meager 7% of the gate receipts. And since my mum knows some powerful people, she managed to put the club directly to the 4th division of the Turkish league system. The plan was for me to study abroad for a year, half of it on a course for Sports Club Management and the second half, taking my license as a football manager. By the time I returned, we were promoted to the 3rd division. Thus, in June 21st, 2012 my story began.

    Present day:

    Here I am, sitting at my new office, which is basically the old cantina of the lousy used training facilities we've bought. Mum had to cut down on these stuff because although the board was pretty rich, they weren't filthy rich so I was left with this filthy place. I'm looking at the club information page on the FA's web site. Thinking at the same time. My squad. My squad sucks so bad that even in the 3rd division, our aim is to avoid relegation. I can't tell you how much that hurts the feelings of an ambitious guy. But like I said, I'm ambitious. I'm a bit concerned about our facilities too. They definitely need some investment but we don't have the money. Yet thankfully, the league begins at September so we have plenty of time to play friendly games against major clubs to generate the much needed funds.

    Mum gave me a transfer budget of 17k pounds and a wage budget of 625k pounds and our current wage bill is 125k pounds. So my priority is to find some good free agents and pay them as much as I can. I've already talked to her about a parent club for loaning players but she didn't like the idea because she wanted to rely on our own players instead of loaned ones. What she said was reasonable but carrying the club to higher levels as soon as possible and success means more income, therefore it will enable us to buy better players of our own. And to upgrade our youthe facilities of course. So she accepted my request and the board started working on finding a parent club. I also offered a contract to my highschool PE teacher, who coached our football team, to be my assistant manager. I'm waiting for his answer.

    Top tip. No matter how hard it gets stick with it! At least until you get the sack

    Good luck with the save.

    To post a pic you need to have [url] then [\url] round the link (http// etc). Hope that helps.

    Good news, my highschool teacher has accepted my offer of assisting me in this migthy endeavour. I asked him to prepare me a team report for me and here are the results:

    So I couldn't put the image again, still gives me the invalid URL error. Here's the report

    I only misjudged 2 players for my first team but their potentials far exceed the ones on his list according to him, so it was a simple preferation of potential over experience.

    I also tried to sign a scout for the club but for some reason, mum doesn't let me pay enough. I can't even sign an obscure scout who isn't known by anyone in the business. This sucks but I trust my teacher to scout some players for me when I need him to.

    I've also 8 friendlies from which we'll probably earn about 50k

    Thanks If I manage to avoid relegation, I'll upgrade my youth facilities and we'll see how that works out. I've got 4-5 youth prospects already and the average age of my squad is 20

    Oh btw, I couldn't change the club logo. If anyone would make a logo for me to use, with the colours on the kit and the name of the club of course, I'd be so so so glad. It would make my gameplay experience at least two times better, seriously ^^

    I knew that free transfers were really important for the club. We've signed two very experienced players with great quality for our division. Both of them have played for at least 10 years in the top division. Zafer Özgültekin and Murat Bölükbaş...

    Benefits of having a feeder club.. We've signed a magnificent winger, just what I needed. Thanks to Bursaspor who offered him for a very low price. I've put my entire transfer budget on him but since he was wanted by the second division clubs, he was worth it. If all goes well, he will take us to the next level.

    We've won almost all of our friendly games against the top clubs of Turkey. I should say that I did not expect this. These lads are capable of interesting things. However, it really bugs me that although we scored about 15 goals in the friendlies, our new signing Murat Bölükbaş didn't score a single goal. Hopefully, when it comes to league games, he'll find his form

    First game of the season and we were up against another relegation candidate, Afyonkarahisarspor, at home. A mistake from their goalkeeper allowed my young right midfielder prospect to score the first goal. Later on, one of our crosses hit a defender and went in. We won the game 2-0. I can't say that I'm too pleased with the performance but it was better than I feared. And it's always a good thing to start the league with a win. Hopefully, we'll build onto that and make sure that we don't get relegated

    Second game and we made an amazing comeback of 3-1 against a much stronger side. Or their predicted standing is much higher than ours so to speak. We lost our midfielder in the match. Poor lad was butchered by the opponent midfielder and I seriously don't think that a red card and a couple games' ban isn't enough for a punishment.

    There's something wrong with our finances though. I think mum doesn't know anything about accounting because I don't think we can actually earn enough money to pay our wages but the wage budget is twice the wage bill. Either I'm underestimating our future income, or mum is seriously wrong but I favour the second choice because we only have 500 pounds left in the bank and that won't stay there for long..

    The first derby in our clubs history. And boy, what a game! Against all odds, my boys beat our local rivals Pendikspor 3-0 at home. It was a joy to behold! We've won all of our first 4 games and we're sitting right at the top of the league, nobody expected that, not even me. Let's see how long this good form will keep going..

    Looks like you're off to a great start, keep it up!

    I'm just about to read them, thanks. Btw, we are in the red and I'm quite sure that neither the prize money nor the sponsorship money will be enough to pay for the wages. It sucks that the board gave me a budget they simply can't afford

    Thanks But things haven't been going well lately. After the first 4 games that we won, we managed to get only a signle point in the next 4. Playing against 2 of the top teams of the division, we had a tough beating. It looks like the lads lost their confidence. We need a win, and we need it fast.

    Apparently, watching Al Pacino movies DO help with football management. After 5 games without a win, and just a single point in those 5 games, I decided that I needed to motivate the guys. So there we were, in the middle of the training pitch, with me shouting stuff that I don't even remember now. But after we were done, they all looked inspired. Then I talked to them about tactics a bit. We gave up on the offside trap and zonal marking. I thought they were too complicated for them to perform and they looked relieved. Plus, I told my wingers to play more offensively, because that's how they're actually used to play. So basically we turned to a 4-2-4 but it turned out great. We won our game against a relegation candidate, though we were playing away and we were underdogs. The game ended 2-0 and if only you could see their faces..

    We have an easier looking fixture ahead of us but still, it's going to be tough. However, things are looking good as we're sitting at the top half of the table.

    These last three fixtures were quite frustrating. We were up against w of the best teams in the division, and one was still a good team with playoff expectations. We played amazingly well, totally dominated all three games, but our finishing was extremely poor and we conceded a 90th minute goal in all three of them. My tactics are working great, the team is playing well but the strikers just don't do it. The experienced big name signing is horrendous. He is already in the bench and his days in the club are almost over due to his high pay and poor performance. He only managed to score one goal in about 18 hours of football. We're lying at tenth place, only 4 points above the relegation zone. The league is incredibly competitive. And our next two fixtures are against two teams with playoff expectations so I'm hoping to get at least a point but I'm pretty pissed off.

    All in all, these lads have been playing fantastic and I seem to understand the team and the league better, which means I am much more capable with my tactics now. The only problem is finding a decent striker. I have one on my shortlist but we can't afford him, I'll try to loan him, hopefully he'll join our cause and be the leader we're looking for

    At those 2 fixtures, we managed to win 4 points, and the third game was against the third placed team and we won that game too! The 17th and final game of the first half of the season put us away against a weak relegation candidate. Sadly, it was snowing and the pitch was terrible. This made us pretty incapable since we play a short passing game. We shocked the pundits by losing 2-0 to them and missed the chance to get on level terms with the last playoff place team. So here we are mid-season, a comfortable mid-table place, only 3 points behind the playoff zone. If I manage to loan a quality striker, I believe we can make it to the playoffs, against all odds. Still, I'm quite happy with the performance.

    Great news! Once again, we shocked everybody by causing an upset in the Turkish Cup! We beat a club from 2nd division and we're off to the 3rd round. This means money ^^

    Yeah they kept pulling level I've found an amazing right back btw, I'm going to buy him even though we're in debt because he is top division quality. He really tortured me during contract negotiations but I managed to make him an acceptable offer without destroying my finances. Will put screenshots as soon as he signs

    edit: He signed! This is my old right back.

    And here's the new guy:

    He's quite excellent! And his dead ball ability will be incredibly useful.

    I certainly hope that he will win us points. And we almost made it to the quarter final by causing another upset but lost at the shootout. We dominated the freakin' game. Take a look at the stats and see for yourselves:

    Everything was going great until we faced the leaders. They're 10 points ahead of the closest teams and simply too powerful for this level. We fought well, and we almost scored a late equaliser when their defender simply decided to take our striker down from behind, just before he reached the penalty box. We lost 3-2. Then we were up against another strong club and we lost 2-1. Furthermore, our best striker and top scorer got injured for 8 weeks. I was so sure that we were going to make it into the playoffs. Now it seems impossible.

    On the bright side though, look who showed up on the youth candidates day:



    Pity that u21 players need to be registered in Turkey and I'll have to wait till next season to play him. He could have been so useful now that our top scorer is injured. He is already the best striker in the club and his determination shows that he will be much much better in no time, since he'll probably reach his full potential

    edit: He is touted as the next Lefter Küçükandonyadis so this guy may as well be a wonderkid. Turns out, junior coaching really does work.

    Turkish lower leagues, not something you see every day. You've made a good start too.

    Not sure I'd want my mother as chairman though!

    haha I'll give up on the role-play side though. As for the form, it dropped so bad after that striker injured, it hurt my eyes. I guess he was not only the striker but the playmaker too

    Such an unlucky way to end the season.. Our top striker returned from his injury and the team found it's potential again, winning all of the 5 games left. However, left out of the playoff zone with just 2 points. They expected us to finish 17th so this is quite impressive but it really hurts. If our striker didn't get injured, we would have finished 3rd probably.. I'll prepare a season summary tomorrow, for now, a moment of silence for my brave but unlucky boys:

    Suadiye 2012/2013 Season Summary

    League Table

    A pretty good season overall since we were expected to finish 17th. However, disappointing too since we really had the chance to make it into the playoffs. Uğur Çanak's 8 week injury cost us the playoff spot. Apparently, the team can't play the beautiful football they're capable of, when he isn't playing. He may be giving them confidence or perhaps his good runs and passes are the reason this team can attack so well. He isn't the best striker in the team ability-wise, but he sure took the team to a new level. Our humble stadium of 5,5k was almost always full but we don't have the money to expand it.

    Turkish Cup:

    We weren't expected to do any good at the cup but we managed to make it to the 3rd round by knocking out a Bank Asya 1. Lig side. At the 3rd round we were up against another Bank Asya side and we dominated the whole game, but couldn't score and we lost at a very dramatic penalty shootout.

    Key Players:

    3) Atahan Menekşe: Bought for a hefty fee of 35k pounds, and earning even more in a year, this right back is too good for this level. He was bought in January and contributed 3 goals and 10 assists in 15 appearences.

    2) Serkan Gasi: Bought for an even heftier fee of 50k pounds, this centre back surely earned his money. He played 30 games in the league and finished with an average rating of 7.17 but that doesn't give enough credit to his performance since he single-handedly stopped countless attacks with his inch perfect tackles.

    1) Uğur Çanak: He is the man! His abilities are so limited yet he was the best performer after Atahan. Not only that, he was the key player like I said above, without him, we couldn't play. Although I'm thinking about putting him in the bench next season, that can change quite fast if he can play like this year. 15 goals and 6 assists in 27 appearences.

    2013/2014 Season Preview:

    Well there isn't much to say really. We signed 3 players. A central defender, since our key man's partners were poor. A left back, because we had problems at that part but he suffered from an achille tendon problem in training and he will miss the first 4 months of the season, he wasn't injury prone too. Our last signing is a right winger. Our right winger was pretty good but inconsistent. He was almost a key man last season but his inconsistency cost us in the last quarter of the season. So we signed a new guy but this one is injury prone. That's the problem with Turkish players. Almost 70% of them are either injury prone or inconsistent. Well we'll hope that our initial right winger will perform good when our new signing is injured. We only payed 4k for the left back and the others were free signings btw.

    I also promoted 2 players from the youth team. The mighty wonderkid striker who barely turned 16 and already performing well in the u20 world cup right now, and he is wanted by Fenerbahçe too but luckily he is a Suadiye fan and hates Fenerbahçe. It'll be tough to keep him but I'm confident. Worst that can happen is we sell him for 5 times our overall club value

    The second kid promoted is an attacking midfielder who will play central midfielder whenever necessary or when I feel like the game is won and decide to give him a chance. He has potential and we lack quality in the middle so hopefully he'll manage to solve that next season.

    2 other youth prospects to mention are a central defender and a right winger. The central defender is the second most talented player after the wonderkid but not good enough for a first team spot and due to his age, I just can't trust him to be the sub for now too. He'll have to work hard in training and get ready for next season. The right winger will surely surpass our current right winger but again he wasn't ready for the first team. Yet if our new signing gets injured, he'll make it to the bench and if our current players form drops again due to inconsistency, he might get a chance too.

    Media prediction: 10th
    Board expectation: Mid-table finish
    My expectation: Playoff place (2nd-5th)
    Turkish cup: Board just wants to gain experience but I want to make it to the 4th round this time.

    Nope, I erased the squad. I think the game created the players according to the club reputation which is regional. Our squad was, and still is very poor. But fitting tactics and a few key players allowed us to perform well above expectations. The wonderkid was generated March 8th 2013 at youth candidates day. I don't know if junior coaching affects the potential of the players you get, I thought that was youth network, but it is excellent now and we're lucky to have him. Our club value is 1.2 million pounds and the media already suggests that he may be sold for 10m. But I won't settle for anything less than 25m

    Put -9 -8 -7 or sth as PA so it will be random, as for CA I don't have any idea. And how do you plan on keeping your squad of friends together? Bigger clubs may be interested, etc. Cuz I thought about doing that too but thought that it would be really hard to keep them if they were good

    2013/2014 Mid Season Update:

    So, things are going well. My wonderkid striker didn't score any goals in the first 5 games and he missed quite a lot of chances. So I talked to him and told him that he should begin turning those chances into goals or he won't be in the first team. He agreed that his form was unacceptable and boy did he change! He's been magnificent since that chat and has been the main hero of our succesful run.

    Uğur Çanak, last year's hero striker is once again my first choice as Murat (wonderkid) Tiryaki's partner. The other strong striker with better attributes weren't playing well and I gave him a chance. He scored almost as much as Murat. His abilities are pretty bad but despite them, he somehow knows where to be and how to hit the ball to score goals. He reminds me of Filippo Inzaghi.

    Before the season began, I bought a new centre-midfielder at the last minute. He is playing really well and now my main man in the midfield.

    All in all, just as I expected, good transfers for the needed spots have made us a much stronger team now and we're sitting comfortably at the top of the table. I didn't expect this sort of performance though. I expected the team to play magnificently for a few weeks but then lose all the important games like last season. Well instead they thrashed whoever came on their way and despite some last minute draws, title looks like a pretty realistic aim now.

    We made it to the 3rd round of the turkish cup again, and once again we got knocked out by a Bank Asya division club. It hurt a little since we went ahead, only to get beaten 2-1 and a couple of our shots hit the post but I'm happy with the performance and honestly, I didn't pay much attention to that game. Hopefully, next year we will perform better against those sides so we can have a mid-table finish against all odds.

    Here's the league table for now:

    What a game!

    After losing 2 out of the last 3 games, we were up against our title rivals and they are a much better squad than ours. They were high favourites too. But it turns out, they REALLY wanted us to win. Especially Murat Türkkan. Check it out

    Thanks guys, I won't be updating this for a week I guess since it's a week long holiday and I won't be playing much but we played a few more games and although our form has dropped, so has the competitions so we're maintaining the 10 point gap

    Good news! We've guaranteed the title and there are 5 more games left till the end of the season. Great achievement for this new club. I'll put the season summary in an hour or so, after the season is completed

    Suadiye 2013/2014 Season Summary

    League Table

    We had an amazing season thanks to Murat Tiryaki's superhuman performance. Last years hero striker Uğur Çanak was also a major force this year, despite being touted as a substitute for this season, he was Murat's strike partner and helped the team's cause with brilliant performances. Although at the beginning of the second half of the season our form has dropped, our rivals' forms have dropped too so despite losing many points in the first 6 weeks, the 10 point gap didn't change at all. We claimed the title 5 weeks prior to the end of season and I let younger backup players play the last five games so we lost 2 of them but I honestly didn't care. Next year, we're looking for a tough battle but if I can sign a quality goalkeeper, manage to hang on to Murat (or sell him for a huge fee), I see us sitting mid-table at the end of the season.

    Turkish Cup

    After defeating 2 lower division clubs, we were once again up against a second tier club and they beat us 2-1. We played well but our goalkeeper was, as always, a mess. I didn't care much about that game to be honest, since we were on a great run for the title, I was actually a bit glad that we got the cup out of the way and were now able to concentrate on the league. Next year, I want quarter finals.

    Key Players:

    3) Can Özdoğan: This left winger was already a good player last season too. However, he stepped up to get this club to a higher level this season, contributing 13 goals and 8 assists. He was always there at our dangerous attacks and was a decisive player in our midfield. The bad thing about him is, he is out for 4 months with a torn hamstring and I'm not sure if he can perform this way again...

    2) Uğur Çanak: Yep! Him again. He scored 21 this season and showed everyone that he was still the best striker of last years squad, despite the new signings. He may not be talented, but boy can he score goals! I don't know how long his form will continue but he'll definitely be playing in my starting eleven the next year. (If I don't make a major signing of course)

    1) Murat Tiryaki: His stats can do the talking instead of me. He is wanted by a number of clubs, including Real Madrid. And the good thing is, only 17 years and 1 month old and he is going to the World Cup! His first cap will be in the World Cup! And like that wasn't good enough, 3 national strikers are injured so he might start the games too! I'll be attending the games and watching my little boy play. Hopefully he'll do good and I'll offload him for 15 million pounds. That's my acceptable price, for now. And the media says that Real Madrid needs to pay at least 12,5 million so it's not unrealistic too. If I can sell him for that much, a stadium and facilities upgrade, plus a few quality transfers will definitely take this clubs to the next level, faster than his performance will. And our training facilities are only adequate but I want this kid to reach his potential, so it might be best if we sold him.

    I've got a problem. We can pay 150k to players now annualy, and 9k to coaches. But still, we can't pay more than 3.9k to scouts and even the worst ever, clubless, obscure scout won't sign for less than 4.5k. Without scouts, I can't scout players from abroad and this hampers my ability to sign good prospects who are unnoticed by my rivals in the league. But I couldn2t find a way to increase that limit. Is there a way or do I simply have to wait for the chairman to be nice?

    Maybe adjust the budget slider in the 'boardroom' to give more focus on wages? Not sure how much that'll work on staff wage allowances though.

    I think it works normally but there isn't any money left to increase it. Guess I'll have to do with lousy prospects I find, or gamble on foreginers :/

    2014/2015 Mid Season Report

    Although 2 games are left till the first half of the season is done, the mid season break is here for some reason, and I decided to post the report now.

    After the first 15 games, our newly promoted club sits on the top, undefetaed. I signed 3 important players. One of them didn't play well but still he is my main choice for midfield playmaker. The others however, done magic.

    First off, I signed an Argentinian goalkeeper for free and he is twice the player of my old keeper. True story. He can actually save shots and he doesn't concede easy goals. He makes crucial saves too so finally we have a decent keeper.

    My other signing was a Gambian right winger with a high flair and he is doing wodners in my right wing. Contributing many goals and assists, he is a constant threat.

    Other than that, the great strike partnership between Murat Tiryaki and Uğur Çanak got even better. Although Uğur's performances have dropped a bit in the last few games, he managed to score 11 goals in 15 games and added 6 assists too. Murat on the other hand, was simply magnificent and once again, I'll let the stats talk for themselves.

    Hopefully, we'll jump straight to the Premier Division and face the real test soon. The extra income will do wonders though, so I'm not too scared about it too. I reckon we can finish between 10th and 12th places next season. I hope so too, because it gets boring to be so good, so fast..

    Thanks, we made it to the Semi Final of the Turkish cup but we're up against Fenerbahçe, our rivals, one of the best clubs in Turkey, and last three years title winners in FM. However, they haven't won the cup since 1983 and their unlucky streak in the cup is what I'm hoping for in the semi-final game

    We're already playing an insane get the ball forward, attacking mentality, pump ball into the box 4-2-4 so we'll give them a hard time. I know this sounds sooo insecure but the way we play, they don't have the time to attack, all of their time is wasted trying to get the ball out of their own half and stop us it's my first time in FM that I'm so succesful with a crazy tactic and it feels good ;)

    If only the game was at our stadium, that would give us a great chance. But I'm still confident of a good result, I'll make it a night to remember for them!

    Consistent attacking (though nothing as intense as that) is what I like and often works as well.

    Yeah I usually attack consistently but of course not intense like that here either. But I gave it a shot one game when we were down early. It turned out to be an awesome tactic for my squad and I kept it probably gonna change once we make it to the Turkish Super League

    This is what happens if you **** me off with a win streak. We both had the same points before the game, and I was leading with goals average. 7 goals and an assist from my wonderkid striker. Good times, good times..

    Yep, they were making the championship playoff in my Galatasaray game but in this game, somehow they are relegated. And Fenerbahçe couldn't make the top 4 in my Galatasaray game, barely gone to Europe in the first season but than couldn't go again. In this game, they won the title 3 times in a row. Life is full of surprises :P

    @B.W.G. thanks man, same goes for your topic ;)

    Thanks

    I have good news, and great news. Good news is, we secured promotion 5 weeks before the end of season!

    Great news is, we gave Fenerbahçe a beating at their homw, in front of their 35 thousand supporters and now we're through to the final, up against a weaker side who barely survived relegation. Europe, here we come!

    Suadiye 2014/2015 Season Summary

    I can't seem to log in to imageshack for some reason, so I won't be putting screenshots for now.

    Bank Asya 1. Lig:

    They predicted us to finish 17th, we ended up being the champions. 25 wins 6 draws and 3 losses in 34 games. We scored 108 and conceded 45. We conceded too much, and the reason is that later in the league, the team got too complacent and our games ended 3-4 4-5 or sth. barley winning. All in all, a great run thanks to our beloved wonderkid.

    Ziraat Türkiye Kupası (Turkish Cup):

    I didn't expect anything, so didn't the board. But we got very lucky with the draws and found ourselves at the semi finals. There we were up against Fenerbahçe, our biggest rivals. And The game was 3 days after we secured promotion. Morale was high and it was a derby so my team got really motivated and beat them 3-1 away. At the final luckily, we were against a team which barely survived relegation in the Super League so it wasn't that big of a challenge but we had to make a comeback to win 2-1. The first Turkish Cup in the club's history and we, as a newly promoted team, are going to Europe for the first time. Only two games and we may find ourselves at the group stage if we're lucky.

    Key Players:

    They haven't changed since the mid-season update but Murat Tiryaki's performance have been godlike. Here are the stats of this barely 18 years old striker who is now valued at 4.2 million pounds:



    Next Season: I'm expecting a much tougher challenge but I see us at 9th place at the end of the season. I don't think we'll make it into the Europa League groups and I'm hoping for semi-finals in the Turkish Cup. Let's see how all that goes..

    Thanks With such a little budget and such little reputation due to fast climb, I'm having trouble with the transfer period but I found a great keeper for a bargain price so I hope he will help us a lot. And I seriously think that if a club rises too fast, the club reputation should rise even higher due to their incredible rise and promising future. Hope SI sorts it out :P

    Hey guys! I've missed this place. So many new topics since I've been gone. School, personal life, job etc. I had to take a long break from FM but today, I figured that I've missed the good game, so decided to tackle a few games. So for the update,

    The season is beginning in 3 days. The authorities think that we'll finish in the last place, but.. Of course not!

    I've bought 2 experienced central midfielders, one being a superb player mentally, and they'll be really helpful in the campaign.

    I've saved the big news for the last part of this update. We drew Hoffenheim in the Europa League 4th round, and we've eliminated them! We're fresh into the top division and we're in the group stage! This will cost us probably, since morale will be low after european games, but the money intake will help the running costs a lot. Here's the final score after the second game:



    Edit: PSV, Udinese, Celtic =(

    UPDATE!

    We're at 12th place in the league, could've been 6th if we didn't lose 2 easy games at home in the past 2 games, but morale was really low. Because of Europa League, my players are always tired so I concede many injuries. Still, we manage good things. Such as making it to the knockout round! I won twice against Udinese and drawn with PSV once. Here's the final standings after the last game of the group stage. Unbelievable with my poor squad, fresh out of Turkish second division... I'm amazed and happy!

    Hey, egesagin, do you still want a logo? I was messing around and sort of knocked together this (shamelessly inspired by a certain German team):



    In-game version (standing in for the Trabzonspor logo for demonstration purposes):



    It's not professional looking or anything, but you want it, I can send it to you (or if you want a different design, tell me).

    Cool.
    Improved version with metallic look:



    If you can tell me the Unique ID of your club (go to preferences / display / graphics&sound and tick "Show Unique IDs", and then it shows up next to the club name), then I can make the different sizes and a config file and put it together in a folder. Could you also PM me an email I can send it to?

    Yeah, it should work with your saved game. I've sent you an email with a zip.

    Suadiye 2015/2016 Season Summary

    Spor Toto Süper Lig:

    A surprisingly brilliant season. The media expected us to finish 18th but once again, we managed to do much much better. After 3 unnecesarily easy losses at the end of the first half of the season, we were sitting at 12th place. In the January window, I signed Ched Evans and a new-gen called Almir and our strike force became much better. As you can see, Almir contributed 11 goals and 17 assist (wow) in 25 total appearances. Ched Evans also helped with his experience and teamwork ability and finally Murat Tiryaki had not one, but two good strike partners. We then went on an amazing run, losing 5 games and winning all the rest, thus taking us to 5th place of the table at the end of the season. As you can see, we were only 1 point away from entering the champions playoff.

    The table gives another interesting statistic too, we were the second highest scoring team in the league, but also the highest conceding team too. If our defense were any good, we would be crowned champions probably... In the European Places playoffs, we played Kayserispor in the first round and in the first leg, away from home, we beat them 4-10 with an amazing 3 goals 3 assists performance from Murat Tiryaki and Ched Evans came on as a sub in the 62nd minute and completed his hat-trick in 77th. We won the home game 1-0 and we were against Ankaragücü. Ankaragücü is an interesting team, and a menace for my team as they beat us 4-0 in the league, in the final month of the season, preventing us from going to the champions playoffs. We won the first game 1-2 away, but lost 0-2 with a last minute goal at home and bye bye Europa League. Or is it? ;)

    Ziraat Türkiye Kupası:

    It was much easier this time, since as past winners, we were added to the draw late in the competition. We played 2 lower division clubs and a Süper Lig club who were much inferior to us in the quarter finals. In the semi finals though, I was worried because we were against Bursaspor who beat us twice in the league and finished a single point ahead of us. Our revenge was cold, we beat them 8-1. The final saw us beat Beşiktaş 1-0 and Europe, here we come again!

    UEFA Europa League:

    Nobody gave us a chance in this competition, since we were a newly promoted Turkish club with a history of 4 years of football. In the 4th qualifying round, we were up against Hoffenheim and shockingly we managed to knock them out and won ourselves a place in the group stage. The group was a tough one, with Celtic, PSV and Udinese being much stronger teams then us, but our lads fought bravely. We won against Udinese twice, and a draw with PSV saw us claim the second place in the group, and we were facing Shaktar Donetsk. We were far ahead of where we should've been, so there was no pressure, and no hearts were broken when they knocked us out 7-4 on aggregate. All in all, it was a great run and it made our team, and myself as a manager, slightly known in Europe.

    Key Players:

    I've already talked about Ched Evans and Almir, but the real star was once again, our very own Murat Tiryaki. He had a hard time, getting used to the top level football, but after November, he started banging them in and with a magnificent performance, he claimed Turkey Top Scorer and adidas European Golden Shoe awards with 38 goals to his name. He also got his first cap with a pre tournament friendly, and in his first official game, his second cap, he scored a goal against Spain in the European Championship group stage and helped Turkey win the game. The tournament has just begun and I'm sure he'll do wonders in the tournament. Here's a new screenshot of him, so that you can see how much he progressed and his general performance this season. So far, in 94 games, he scored 123 goals and claimed 43 assists in his career.


    Other notes:

    We have excellent junior coaching, paying 500k a month, but due to technological advances, our facilities were downgraded to adequate training facilities and basic youth facilities. The board says they don't have the money to upgrade them, but they just got a bank loan of 1.7m pounds to expand the stadium by 1500 people to make it 8000 capacity. I wanted to cut back on junior coaching, since our junior networking and youth facilites were pretty crappy, but they told me that the club was financially stable enough to carry on with the current junior coaching budget.

    I signed Emre Can as a free transfer, hopefully he can improve himself and fill in for the retiring midfielders. I have a transfer budget of 1.5 million pounds but not many players that I can buy for that amount. I'm waiting for the new season to officially start before buying players. Hopefully, I will at least buy the necessary replacements so that we can keep what we have done so far, and progress further ahead.

    Murat scored 5 goals in 5 games in the European Championship, taking Turkey to the semi final, but he was injured for 3 weeks in the quarter final. Fatih Terim, the boss, was devastated and Turkey lost 2-1 to Denmark in the Semi Final. He's on his way to becoming a true Turkish legend. I'm so proud

    egesagin, I've sent you a new version of the logo. I've just tweaked the design slightly, and made the ingame version look nicer, matching the metallic megapack logos more. The smallest size version also looks better now. (I'm properly done with it now, I promise. ;) )

    Suadiye 2016/2017 Season Summary

    Hey guys, sorry I'm really sick so I can't make a proper season update.

    Turkish Cup: We got knocked out at 5th round to a lower league club -.-

    Süper Lig: We were about to get a place in the championship playoffs but 4 injuries at the same time, got us for a month and we were against strong teams so it killed our chances. We finished 5th place, 8 points behind the leader. Still very impressive. We finished the european places playoff and played Beşiktaş who beat us 5-2 and we're going to the Europa League from the second qualifying round

    Europa League: Despite being in an easy group, shockingly we lost twice against Hapoel Tel-Aviv and got knocked out in the group stage

    News: Almir was pretty poor this season, so I sold him for 4 million pounds to Santos. But the real problem is, I had to sell Murat Tiryaki. He had only one year left on his contract and he was asking for 2 million pounds, which obviously I can't afford. However, with only 2 million in the bank, selling him to Chelsea for 23.5 million pounds will do wonders for the club. Hopefully, the club will have much better facilities and with a few more transfers, and the help of Ched Evans, we'll satisfy the board with a top half finish

    edit: sigh.. They're only increasing the stadium capacity by 1k, up to 9.3k... I'm too much of a visionary for this club :/ The training facilities are being upgraded too but I'm not hoping for much

    2017/2018 Mid-Season Update

    Amazing season so far. We got knocked out of Europa League at the group stage but the league campaign was something else. After selling superstar Murat Tiryaki to Chelsea, I brought 2 quality, young strikers, a quality left back who can play in the midfield too and a young centre back who grew amazingly. We had trouble scoring in the first games, but after a while, we got used to it.

    After the first half of the season, we are magically at the top of the table, with 14 wins and 3 losses, no games drawn. We scored 52 goals and the Turkish league record is 105 goals. Perhaps we can make it?

    The only down-side was the Trabzonspor game where they had 4 shots the whole game, we had 20 and they won 2-1 -.-

    We lead the league by 5 points and if we manage to go to the playoffs as league leaders with a 10 point margin, I don't see a reason we fail to become the champions. Glory came faster than expected...

    Sounds like a very promising season.
