    Default Πυργος Πυργιου - Greek Youth Development from the tiny island of Chios



    I am playing as Πυργος Πυργιου "Pyrgos Pyrgiou" in the Greek Amateur Division - Chios Region (Tier 5) I haven't really been able to find any information about them on the internet other than a couple of pictures of the "stadium"

    Chios island is approximately crescent or kidney shaped, 50 kilometres (31 mi) long from north to south, 29 kilometres (18 mi) at its widest, and covers an area of 842 square kilometres (325 sq mi). The terrain is principally mountainous and arid, with a ridge of mountains running through the spine of the island.

    The south of the island is noted for the Mastichochoria (Μαστιχοχώρια, literally: Mastic Villages), the seven villages of Mesta (Μεστά), Pyrgi (Πυργί), Olυmpi (Ολύμποι), Kalamoti (Καλαμωτń), Vessa (Βέσσα), Lithi (Λιθί) and Elata (Ελάτα), which together have controlled the production of mastic gum in the area since the Roman period. The villages, built between the 14th and 16th centuries, have a carefully designed layout with fortified gates and narrow streets to protect against the frequent raids by marauding pirates.

    Pre-Season Update



    Boardroom Overview - Finances - Competition Expectations

    Fixtures:



    We only lost our first game where we used a 4-4-2 tactic, I changed that to a 4-5-1 for the next 2 games where we drew both 3-3 and decided to take out the DM and add a sweeper for the rest of the games as a 5-4-1.

    Team Report - Tactics


    Key Players:

    Charis Tsatiris (ST)

    Dimitris Liadis (GK)

    Antonis Chandris (DL/R)

    A good first month for us, we were first after 2 games but we're pretty much matching expectations early on.

    A bad month for us seeing us pick up 3 points from 12 and a heavy 4-0 loss at the end of the month..

    That may be, but December was much, much worse...

    December 2011





    This is leading me to try using a different tactic because the current 5-4-1 isn't working well...

    The good form carried over as we managed to pick up 4 points from 9 which is better than what I've been used to.

    Good luck in the challenge.

    Sorry if this is a daft question, but what is the number on the fixtures screenshot after "GAD - Chios"?

    I'm guessing the first bit is the name of the league, but I can't work out what that number related to?

    Only 2 games played this month and there is only 1 game left until the end of the season, we were predicted to finish 13th so I'm quite happy to have exceeded expectations.

    What an end to the season! Our best result by far, it's a shame that only 32 fans got too see it.

    Πυργος Πυργιου - Greek Amateur Division - Chios




    Competitions:


    GAD - Chios League Table - League Fixtures

    A decent first season finishing 13 points ahead of relegation and I'll be trying to gain on that for next season. At the start of the season we couldn't bring any consistency until around February time where we started to pick up again.


    Squad

    We have a weak-ish squad but they do the job, a couple of players from this years intake are starting to make an impact already and hopefully they have some developing room.


    Key Players:


    Charis Tsatiris (ST / AM(L))

    Charis was one of the youngest of the starting squad, he played all season and managed to get 8 goals, just under a quarter of goals we scored all season.


    Alexandros Charalabis (AM C/ AM L)

    The 2nd most valuable player at the club and he got the most assists in the team with 9, he's still got a bit of growth left with 4* CA & 5* PA.

    I like how you put 'survived' in the notes :P I think going by the youth intake your squad might not be the strongest, but the youths will only improve and hopefully over the next few seasons with some good player development you can start to push for promotion.

    Good luck!

    Pre-Season Update:



    A good pre-season sees us lose a couple but we're going into the new season with much better form than last season, we're 500-1 to get promoted but we have gone from 15 to 24 season ticket holders.

    In 4th with a game in hand, we won the first 2 games last season then we had a massive slump so I won't be too happy with the form just yet.

    Well...that was an experience, a 4-1 loss, a 5-0 loss and 2 3-1 wins, atleast there's always entertainment when Pyrgos play!

    Bit of a Greecy pole that you need to climb at this early stage.

    That was very, very bad...looks like a bit of the grease is coming off the pole as we hit form:

    That 100 attendance home game was our first sellout!

    Thanks TM, the Youth Candidates are coming up now, we NEED either a Goalkeeper or a decent defender to come through as our GD is awful!

    Πυργος Πυργιου - Greek Amateur Division - Chios




    Competitions:



    GAD - Chios League Table - League Fixtures


    Much better this season, managing to have a win streak which saw us end up finishing in 4th.


    Squad

    A good squad, but we still lack quality in defence, everyone got a chance to play atleast once.


    Key Players:

    Christos Psoras (ST) - His stats dropped at the end as you can see but he was our top goalscorer with 10.


    Alexandros Charalabis (AM C/ AM L) - 2nd season in a row that he's gotten the most assists, going 2 better than last year by getting 11 assists.

    That's tough.
    Propably as long as your facilities remain as it is you will have problem developing youngsters.
