    Santarcangelo Calcio, April 2020 Review

    04.04.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 1 Vicenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek lashed home two goals and an embarassing own goal gave us the win.

    10.04.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Grosseto (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek's goal gave us all three points, despite Sebastian Mladen's straight red card for a vicious foul..

    18.04.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 2 Triestina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek and Sergio Corallo helped turn a 0-1 deficit into a 2-1 lead, but we conceded late on to stumble to a draw.

    25.04.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Empoli (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Stuttering. STUTTERING.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, May 2020 Review

    02.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Nocerina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Valerio Grassi hit a double and Sergio Corallo hit the winner in this easy game.

    05.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Sorrento (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Valerio Grassi's opening goal seemed to see us on our way, but a late equaliser knocked us for six..

    09.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Brescia (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Oh God. The old team is baaaaaaack

    16.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Reggina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo. Hero. Leader. Saviour.

    23.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Hellas Verona (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo couldn't save us this time. It's come to a last day shootout....

    31.05.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Varese (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo reacted fastest to a rebound to put us in the lead in the three-way fight for the final automatic promotion spot. Brescia, despite being in second place from the first minute as they took the lead, faded early too, conceding two quick goals. Catania also went 1 up early, but conceded and when Mario Nosdeo rounded the keeper and stroked home, I thought we were home and dry. However, a penalty to Varese scared us, only for the post to come to our rescue. Catania went 1-2 down and we were sailing, but a strong fightback saw them hit an 85th minute winner to leave them level on points with us. We shared the points this season in our home and away matches, so it came down to goal difference. And Catania's +27 beat my +26. I'm dumped into the playoffs....

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Postseason 2020 Review

    03.06.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Hellas Verona (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Semi-Final, Leg 1)
    Valerio Grassi scored the vital away goal we needed, however he also sustained a knock that'll keep him out of the second leg and more if so possible..

    07.06.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Hellas Verona (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Semi-Final, Leg 2)
    We were everything we should have been. Tight, defensively and industrious up front and this ethic saw us win 1-0 on aggregate.

    10.06.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 3 Brescia (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Final, Leg 1)
    Complete economy of effort for Brescia. 3 shots on target, 3 goals. Not even a late red card for them couldspoil their day. We're dead and buried. Even with Sergio Corallo's goal

    14.06.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Brescia (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Final, Leg 2)
    We were all over them until the dagger in the heart on 66 mins. Even with Sergio Corallo's late goal, we couldn't beat their defence, condemming us to 3rd place overall in Lega Serie Bwin

    Ouch. That is some utter crap news!

    How can windows updates muck up your saves anyway?

    Disappointing to not go up when you really should have. Sounded like you had a great relegation battle on your hands too. Dagger in the heart indeed Hopefully you get what you deserve next season. Chin up.

    You'll also be more likely to stay up if you have a season more to consolidate and prepare.

    Unlucky man, luck certainly isn't on your side with this save. First it corrupts, now this.

    Good Luck getting back into Serie A.

    Sometimes, if I've been the one to develop the player, I take those kinds of sales very personally.

    All three players I've developed and, in the case of Verbeek, personally scouted and signed. I'm livid.

    Do you have rolling saves on for every week?

    Do weekly rolling saves is my advice and set it to maybe 5 rolling saves or more if you have the hard disc space.

    It sucks to lose any FM progress, even a small amount.

    My rolling saves don't seem to work at the moment for some reason (they aren't updating), so I've taken to backing up my save every time I close the program.

    The rolling save has to be consecutive weeks (or months) of playing. So if its backup every 2 weeks and you only ever play 3 weeks at a time it will only use 2 save files.

    Well, I have them for every month, but when I load one it takes me back to the beginning of the season, which was eight or nine months ago now.

    A shame to here of your problems.

    Personally I save after every two games played or if in the offseason every two weeks manually rotating between 5 different save slots. I experienced problems on FM11 losing significant game time so i know how frustrating it can be.

    I've never had any problems on FM, one of the lucky ones but I do back up my saves and have it auto save every week. Might use 3 save files as well.

    Hopefully you don't lose to much more.

    Weekly rolling is definitely the way to go I've had crash dumps, power cuts, kittens treading on the surge protector power switch, and only ever lose one or two matches at worst. I'd have them bi-weekly if I could.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Preseason/August 2020 Review

    Lega Serie Bwin. After our disappointment last season, we needed to gather ourselves and take another shot at promotion. Given a £31k wage budget and £89k transfer budget, we had the brief to finish in mid-table. I approached about trying to upgrade everything and they agreed to upgrade the youth facilities and junior coaching. They also relaid the pitch. We had Kuami Agboh leave us for Atalanta. But otherwise, we had a quiet period with the club business

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    16.08.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1p Novara (4-3 on pens) (TIM Coppa Italia Second Qualifying Round)
    Mario Nosdeo netted a clipped finish to put us in the lead against the Serie A side, despite us being without 4 regulars and two new signings due to injury. However, we then conceded a late equaliser and that took us to penalties. We netted the first, but then proceded to miss our next two which would be our undoing.

    29.08.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Modena (Lega Serie Bwin)
    An absolutely thunderous strike from Sergio Corallo gave us the opening day win as we didn't seem to suffer a hangover from last season

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Incoming to the club were DC Cristian Conversano on a free from FC Internazionale; AMRC/ST Francisco Javier Caballero from Zaragoza 'B' and DM/MC/AMC Lorenzo Degeri, all on free's. Coming in on loan was the best ever youth product we'd produced, GK Mirco Doria from Fiorentina. On looking up the 2020 Euro U-19 tournament stats, the runners up Romania U-19 had the tournament top scorer in their ranks. I quickly scouted him and he was plying his trade in the Romanian Second Division with FC Bihor. £100k later and ST Marius Lupo was a Santarcangelo player.

    A few reminents of my Lega Pro days were let go on frees. Favoured personnel DM Gianluca Bacchiocci caused a stir by being sold to S.P.A.L for £50k. AMC Antonio Durante was shipped off to Aves in Portugal for £120k and finally, ST Francesco Martino was sold to Deportivo Aláves for £250k

    I've got mine on bi-weekly and it works like a charm. But then I'm on FM10 without the possible danger of steam cocking up the save or game. Never had a crash dump on the game yet. Knock on wood

    Having it on weekly will hopefully sort out your problem Deisler. It's infuriating to lose FM matches. Hope it's happened for the last time now.

    Steam doesn't touch the save games for FM, they're too big to be stored on the cloud.

    Brilliant to see Doria back even if it is only on loan. Good luck for the coming year.

    Glad to see you are keeping with it Deisler. Think I would have lost motivation with all the problems you are having. I currently do fortnightly, three file rolling saves to try and prevent having to go all the way back if it does crash.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, September 2020 Review

    01.09.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Grosseto (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo hit a double to keep us up at the top.

    05.09.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Triestina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Marius Lupo hit his first and second ever goals for the club in a stroll for us

    12.09.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Sorrento (Lega Serie Bwin)
    We battered them. And couldn't finish it off.

    19.09.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Juve Stabia (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek scored an absolute pearler to put us in the lead, but we were undone in the 92nd minute by a 30 yard blast to bring the recently-relegated side a point

    26.09.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 AlbinoLeffe (Lega Serie Bwin)
    A dominant display and, but for the AlbinoLeffe defence putting their bodies on the line, we could have had five!.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, October 2020 Review

    03.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Bologna (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Marius Lupo saw a straight red for a two-footed challenge on 10 mins and then Sergio Corallo got injured after 38 mins. The Corallo injury would keep him out for 6 weeks and we were extremely lucky to come away with a point against another recently relegated side.

    07.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Varese (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek hit the opener for this injury/suspension depleted side. 9 out of the 11 on the pitch were youth products and one of the other two had been at the club for 8 years! Along with that, the first XI had an average age of 18! Late on, there was a roar around the ground as 17 year old Carlos Alberto Vinci scored his first senior goal on his debut for the club to bring the points home

    17.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Vicenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Carlos Alberto Vinci slammed home in the fourth minute to give us the win.

    21.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Bari (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Our first match against the last of the three relegated ex-Serie A sides saw us take the lead on an own goal, then rely on Doria's excellent keeping until they bundled home a corner midway through the second half.

    24.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Pescara (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Classic FM game. Lupo was back, so he went up front with Vinci who'd gone cold in this one. We knocked at the door all game. Vinci made way for Verbeek who skinned his marker, got into the area, stroked it past the keeper's despairing dive FOUR times. The problem was everyone rolled wide of the post. They scored and won on their only shot of the game.

    31.10.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Nocerina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    An own goal settled this. Wesley Verbeek had all our six shots. Five of which trickled past the post.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, November 2020 Review

    03.11.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Livorno (Lega Serie Bwin)
    We lost Verbeek and Pinton to injury during the game and saw Stefano Guarardi sent off for a second yellow in this rearguard action.

    07.11.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Reggina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Carlos Alberto Vinci was restored to the lineup and rewarded us with a brace. Wesley Verbeek setting the tin hat on a good win for us.

    21.11.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Benevento (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Mario Nosdeo unleashed an absolute screamer to give us the lead, however we were pegged back midway through the second.

    30.11.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Hellas Verona (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Carlos Alberto Vinci curled home a gorgeous 20 yard strike to give us the win and make him our top scorer this season.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, December 2020 Review

    05.12.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Piacenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo netted the only goal of the game to give us a good win and keep us in the playoff hunt.

    09.12.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Novara (Lega Serie Bwin)
    A good run halted in exactly the same way as the other defeats. Dominate, lose.

    12.12.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Empoli (Lega Serie Bwin)
    See above.

    19.12.20
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Foggia (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Francesco Cortini's first ever goal for the club arrested the slide and made sure we'd finish 2020 in 6th place.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, I have a lot on my mind for the transfer window. Does Carlo Alberto Vinci's emergence mean that Wesley Verbeek is expendable if it comes to it? Marius Lupo may be the reigning U-19 Golden Boot holder, but he's been an absolute lemon for us this season and I'm wondering whether to cash in on him? Do I sell some of my backup defenders? It's all a mystery!

    This is too good to leave til the January update...




    Amazing!! I first randomly enquired as to his price. I was given it, then I used every penny I had. I scrimped and sold and let players be co-owned to afford most of it, then did it over 24 months...

    Santarcangelo Calcio, January 2021 Review

    09.01.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Crotone (Lega Serie Bwin)
    This match marked the halfway point of the season. And also marked the dullest game of the season so far.

    16.01.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Modena (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Another blank. We're struggling....

    23.01.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 4 - 0 Grosseto (Lega Serie Bwin)
    BOOM! We laid the smackdown on Grosseto with a hat-trick from Wesley Verbeek and a goal from Sergio Corallo. This marked the first game that both strikers were available to me, since the opening month of the season.

    30.01.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Triestina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Dead and buried in 11 minutes.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well. I suppose that I should start with the big news.... Club icon, GK Mirco Doria, returned to the club from Fiorentina on a 4 year deal for £2.5m over 24 months + 10% sell on and £9m buy-back clause. I'm utterly over the moon with this. It's crippled me like the stadium did, but I wanted it MUCH more than that . Also coming in were DC/MC Yakubu Isaac for £14k from Enyimba in Ghana and Finnish free-agent AMC Janne Virtanen on a 6 month deal. Virtanen was brought in, just to give us a bit of a lift for the season run-in, a talented MC who will push Degeri and Nosdeo for the starting slot. On Isaac, I think my scouts stitched me up. He's good, but I have a lot like him. Me thinks he may be out come August..

    We had a lot of exits, both permanent and partial. First up, GK Achille Bergondo left for Trier for £75k, along with GK Pavel Masek who went to Schalke 04 for £550k + 50%. They were both surplus to requirements following Doria's signing. DC Daniel Addo, a possible star in the making, was just not proving himself up against my home-grown defence, so I shipped him off to Udinese for £700k + 50%. Also leaving permanently was ST Francesco Javier Caballero for £14k to Eibar. He'd just not proved himself and had been eclipsed by Vinci. Leaving on the co-ownership front were DC Cristian Conversano for £550k to Sampdoria and disappointing ST Marius Lupo was co-owned by Cagliari for £450k

    I just... *disgusted noise*

    12.02.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 5 - 1 AlbinoLeffe (Lega Serie Bwin)
    That's more like it! A hat-trick from Wesley Verbeek and goals from Sergio Corallo and Mario Nosdeo sealed a fabulous win for us.

    20.02.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Bologna (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek hit the equaliser, before Andrea Maino's 80th minute own-goal sank us.

    Rough ride recently, but you should be better prepared once you get promoted than you were last time around. Silver lining and all that.

    It's good, because I can sell a few players who I brought in to stop them whining about a lack of game time. Youth players tend not to mind.

    You seem to get fantastic youths every season. Going for youth recruitment is paying off

    You reckon they are good enough to make the team right off the bat? Or the near future?

    Santarcangelo Calcio, March 2021 Review

    06.03.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Varese (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek with the winner in this tight contest.

    13.03.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 AS Bari (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Tough loss against the runaway league leaders

    20.03.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Vicenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Sergio Corallo put us ahead in the first half with a sweet finish, but Mirco Doria's fumbling of a harmless 85th minute free-kick meant that they equalised to snatch a point.

    27.03.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Pescara (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek got the winner, midway through the second half.

    02.04.21

    Wesley Verbeek combined with an own goal to see off the playoff contenders.

    10.04.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Livorno (Lega Serie Bwin)
    That man, Wesley Verbeek, stepped up again to give us a priceless win

    17.04.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Reggina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek hauled us level, but even with two sendings off for Reggina, we couldn't get the winner.

    24.04.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 3 Novara (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Owned.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    We're basically fighting for a playoff place. Check that. We're basically fighting for one of two spots. There are 5 teams within 3 points of 5th place.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, May 2021 Review

    01.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Benevento (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Lorenzo Degeri and Amedeo Del Nevo netted in this good win to wipe the taste away from the last game.

    04.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 2 Hellas Verona (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Wesley Verbeek, Cristian Pinton and Francesco Cortini helped us turn a 1-2 deficit into a 3-2 win.

    08.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Piacenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Our third game in a week saw Wesley Verbeek haul us level and Francesco Valentini head home the winner.

    15.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Empoli (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Cristiano Conversano came in to the squad because of injury and promptly headed us into the lead. Another misfiring player, Marius Lupo, add the second midway through the second to give us the lead for good.

    22.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Foggia (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Marius Lupo netted again to give us the lead which Wesley Verbeek sealed late on with a stroked finish.

    30.05.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 1 Crotone (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Marius Lupo netted his third in three games, trying desperately to convince me that he was worth keeping. Francesco Cortini netted as did Janne Virtanen, his first in his last league match for us..

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Wow. What a difference a month makes! That run of 18 points from 18 saw us overhaul a previously-unassailable Sorrento to finish in 4th place in Lega Serie Bwin. Playoffs now beckon and we've had a fantastic run into them. Let's hope we can keep it up!

    06.06.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Sorrento (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Semi-Final, Leg 2)
    Alessandro Mirko Fagri volleyed us into the lead and Carlo Alberto Vinci fired home in the 89th minute to give us a 3-0 win on aggregate.

    13.06.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2e Bologna (Lega Serie Bwin Playoff Final, Leg 2)
    We were battered from minute 1. We held out until the 56th minute, when a misake by Luca Buldrini let in their striker. Full Time came and went and finally, in the 116th minute, a bullet header from a deep cross saw Bologna winners, 1-2 on aggregate and us looking at another broken season

    Well its a tough loss in the playoffs, but I really do like the youth you've gotten, especially Bonomi.

    Its great news about Doria coming back - on my save, despite my captain and formerly best player Elliot Law's skill level being about two divisions down from the Premier League, I refuse to sell him! You got attached to the buggers, cant deny it!

    On the slight upside, now you'll REALLY feel like you've earned promotion to Serie A when it happens. But as others have said, spending longer in Serie B should make you better prepared to remain in Serie A. Although your facility expansion was cancelled, increasing the youth recruitment network is still a nice addition to your facilities. Hopefully you can keep bigger clubs away from the core of your team and really push hard for automatic promotion next season

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Preseason/August 2021 Review

    New season and one I hope will push us on to promotion. After our cancelled facilites last two seasons, board won't let me attempt to try again. All I got from my various requests was an increase in your youth recruitment network and a relaid pitch. No loss in staff, but no increase as I'm over my quota. I was given the brief of a mid-table finish with a £34k wage budget and a £1.2m transfer budget. Let me repeat that. £1.2m. Wow.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    15.08.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Nocerina (Coppa Italia Second Qualifying Round)
    Marius Lupo scored the only goal of the game put us in the next round.

    22.08.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Varese (Coppa Italia Third Qualifying Round)
    Amedeo Del Nevo gave us the lead and then put us 2-0 up with identical 18 yard blasts. Luca Buldrini then set the seal on this match with a looping header from a corner. Wesley Verbeek caught an injury during this match which left us with just two fit strikers from 7.

    28.08.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Reggina (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Our lack of strikers meant that we looked toothless and paid the price.

    31.08.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Catania (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Nothing. We can't hit the target to save our lives. Without Corallo, Verbeek or Vinci, we are useless.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    We got the three co-ownership deals back for free. The only other deals we made were 17 year old Belgian DM Çağatay Topraktepe for £500k from FC Brussels. You'd think I'd learned my lesson about signing stars of the Euro youth tournaments but no, here I am, signing the top rated player in recent U-19 Championship. Also coming in was experienced Italian MC Giovanni Cristofari on a free.

    Outgoings were a little more. Experienced MC Nicola Del Pivo was amongst the casualties of expiring contracts. GK Giovanni Piazza was sold to Racing Santander for £100k + 50%, D/WBL Rocco Zoni went to C.D Alcalá for £100k also. Last January's other big arrival DC/DM/MC Yakubu Isaac was shipped out for £600k + 50% to Leixões and finally MC Lorenzo Degeri was sent to Stade Lavallois for £95k.

    We were battered from minute 1. We held out until the 56th minute, when a misake by Luca Buldrini let in their striker. Full Time came and went and finally, in the 116th minute, a bullet header from a deep cross saw Bologna winners, 1-2 on aggregate and us looking at another broken season
    I was so excited when I saw May's results, but then this...

    Santarcangelo Calcio, September 2021 Review

    11.09.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Pescara (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Ngh. Bloody team.

    15.09.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 3 Piacenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    We're bottom. Without a goal to our name.

    18.09.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Varese (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Marius Lupo curled home a free-kick to give us our first goal of the season. That, added to Sebastian Mladen's header and Wesley Verbeek's placed shop, also gave us our first win of the season

    25.09.21
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Vicenza (Lega Serie Bwin)
    Success begets success as an 18 yard strike from Giovanni Cristofari and a point-blank header from Marius Lupo gave us our second win on the trot..
