I also have at least 3o goals a season from both my 2 strikers almost every season, but I adopt a very attacking tactic. (The 41/42 season is still in progress, which is why the total is only 31).

Both strikers, so 60 goals a season? Sweet!

 

That's probably why I keep getting sacked!

I know from regular saves that I shouldn't get too excited...but this feels like a promising first season start:

Intake Preview #1

Be good just to have a second goalkeeper to be honest. Only downside is there's no mention of any decent defenders.

Well, I am very excited about the youth intake if this preview is anything to go by.

JS Hercules 2021 Season Report

Ps4WqCl.jpg

League table | Promotion Group | Fixtures prt1 Fixtures prt2 | Transfers |Finance

 

Things went well in our first season. We were predicted to be fighting in the bottom end of the table but we never even got close to that.

Competitions

Suomen Cup: The season started with a group stage. 6 teams, 5 games. top 2 would go  on to the KO stages. I had no idea how my team could fare and went in blindly. We surprised everyone with topping the group. In the second round we caused an upset by beating top division side FC ILves. the QF was against lower league opposition and not a problem. In the Semi Final our fairy tale start got ended By Inter Turku. They went on to win the Final too.

Ykkönen: The League started during the cup run and we brought our good form with us. while the great form dwindled away after the halfway mark we still got results and ended up 2nd behind Ekenäs IF Tammisaari.

Promotion Group: Like the cup. 6 teams, 5 matches. Only we got to bring our points of the regular season with us. 5 matches to make up 2 points to the top position? I was confident. That was my mistake. we lost our form as well as 3 of the 5 games, winning 1. We ended up as third, which gave us Home advantage in the playoff QF

Playoffs: The team righted its back and got to it. We won the QF and the SF against the nummer 2. Next up was the final against a top division side. winner got a place/could stay in the top division.

It was a two legged afair. we opened the score in the first tie away from home ut they came back and won 2-1. In the return we were the better team with the better chances. unfortunately none of them went in. 0-0

Player Performance

Topscorer: Pekka Welling.

He gave us 14 goals and 6 asists in 33 apearances. Not bad for my DLF

Best Overall: Muritala Adeniran

This weird 2 pace, 13 acceleration playmaker with 10 vision and passing played brilliantly all season long. 

Off the field:

The board is happy with me and I'm happy with the board. I got my national C licence as well as the National B and am now studying for the National C. They also agreed to increase the Junior coaching and Youth recruitment.

The finances are okay-ish. we did need a cash injecture to keep us afloat.

A bit disapointing, to be honest. Hopefully those top four can develop quick and well.

Vikeologist's 21st Folkestone Intake Report (and 17th Intake Review)

See the source image

Last year I only offered contracts to 4 people, and even that may have been too many. (I’ve just checked, and none of the 4 are beyond all hope yet). It wasn’t a great intake is what I’m saying.

This year’s looks much better, and I’ve tagged and offered contracts to 9 of them.

20210311141338_1.thumb.jpg.47a56a8226197cae23140756bc2c4ccc.jpg

There’s no good personalities though.

20210311142908_1.thumb.jpg.0730d209d8f4fc1ec5ec0f8aadd45889.jpg

Eden White 21a – A central midfielder, and I guess that’s the position I most need filled. I have 1 good player in that position, and a couple that are supposed to have potential, but have had a few years to develop and really haven’t. There’s probably too much at stake the remainder of this season, but I could see Eden starting next season. However, although I can’t tell much about his personality, I can tell that there’s nothing particularly good there.  He is exactly what an underachiever appears as.

Robert McStravick 21c (was 21b) / Dave Jackson 21b (was 21c) –

2 strikers and I probably tagged them the wrong way round initially because judging by the relevant attributes, Jackson looks by far the better bet off the bat. However, they’re judged to have the same CA/PA, so perhaps McStravick will turn out to have strengths not immediately apparent.

Still Jackson has a good personality and Rob’s is Casual (i.e. awful), so I’m actually going to swap them around from those in the overview screenshot right now.

I’ve had the same 2 starting strikers for many years now, with none of the subs posing even the slightest threat to their places, so Jackson will at least make it to the sub’s bench of he improves and scores often for the youth team.

YP17 Review

644836913_yp17review.thumb.jpg.5908afc6c29753c4ada869abb675faa2.jpg

Kim Min-Ki 17a – A central defender, and when he arrived I needed one of those. I had such high hopes for him. His star ratings, his personality, his attributes (apart from his low determination) and the fact that first team opportunities were just waiting there for him.

I’ve had worse ‘a’ players, but nobody has disappointed as much as Min-Ki. He started 46 matches his first 2 seasons. He was terrible. He didn’t improve at all. In the next 2 intakes I received 3 good central defenders, making him obsolete, but no less disappointing.

Neil Norris 17b – I didn’t realise they were the same intake, but Norris is another terrible disappointment. Unlike Min-Ki who all my coaches have now given up on, Norris is still considered to have 5 star potential, but still only 2 star CA. He plays a lot, (and poorly). I mentioned above that I have a couple of supposedly promising central midfielders, but his time is very much running out.

Jermaine Starkey 17c – Are you kidding me? I thought that I’d be looking back on a good intake, but he’s currently an overage player in the Under 19s, and I’ve just set him for release this summer.

I’m sure I had at least one good player that year.

Kevin Spencer 17d – Oh, alright, yeah. Spencer’s a stud. Just lightyears better than any of my other left wingers, which means that I use him too much.

Scott Hughes 17h – The other promising central midfielder. He’s supposed to be a right winger, but needs must, and he is better than Norris, (and thus the starter).

To be honest, there probably are a lot of players who will have a long career in non-league football from that intake. But I’m not in non-league any more.

Spencer’s great though.

Season Review 2123/24

RELEGATED!

Not sure why I bother changing tactics, every time I do it I end up in a relegation battle, see 2115/16 season.

With the awful intakes in the last 3-6 years I don't have the players to get me out of the mess.

One win from 7th August - 29th December (19 games!) pretty much cemented us to bottom place

Had a go second half of the season but couldn't make up the gap

Carl Howe scored another 38 goals but no way he is going to stay while we are in the Championship

Time for a rebuild and rethink

Farnborough January 1, 2031 Update

1624429047_October-December2030Fixtures.png.137aa7777ef7eb9c55ecfd4e1bf1cece.png

Defense is very inconsistent because they just aren't very good for this level.  They enter the club as 2* talents and then just don't develop.  I've got about a dozen backline players who are all interchangeable as below average Vanarama National defenders that don't improve.

1993806717_January12031xGGeneralPerformance.png.e742889c1f64f377cb5af1be8cdb6155.png

Our offense has caught up to our bad defense thanks to Lynch which has pulled up our league standing and goal difference.  If we have just an average defense, we are a playoff contender.

629003388_January12031LeagueTable.png.adf0bc5b37ef0a7285c56a0a57d5d806.png

Six points off the playoff places with one of the worst defenses in the league.

Almanac

1313286736_2031YouthIntakePreview.png.ded1f387ccfe0315bcec56add0b62d65.png

More of the same with our intakes.  Good goalkeeping, forwards, and wingers with the spine of the midfield and center backs lacking quality.

598797074_January12031AcademyAppearances-Goals.png.dd5a00134c6b12ca53a3bb3f9a942cb4.png

To show how bad the defensive intakes have been.  Joe Baitup 23D is a left-back, Philipp Fitz 22E is a defensive midfielder that I converted into a center back and Rhomie Goddard 24A is a plodding right back who can also play on the left.  No one has been able to consistently push them out of the lineup.  Stephen Lynch 30D has 32 goals in just 33 appearances and is quickly moving up the goal scoring charts.

No changes here.

912712127_January12031SeniorInternationalsApps-Goals.png.66b755e4ade3f3761f242dc867027fd7.png

They aren't sexy nations.  Reaching the CONCACAF Gold Cup is probably both nation's ceilings but Rhomie Goddard 24A and Bo Joseph 29F are our first senior internationals and Joseph is our first international goal scorer.

Surprises: None.

Disappointments: South Africa and Croatia both crash out in the group stage.

Surprises: Belgium's 7-1 rout of Jamaica and England's 8-1 destruction of South Korea.  Australia upsetting Denmark 2-0

Best match: USA's 1-1 penalty kick win over Cameroon

672046983_2030WorldCup3rdRoundtoFinal.png.559a32f1c13abb1cf639e4594ec1f2b6.png

This game is officially bugged.  No way England beats Germany on penalty kicks in the semifinals and then wins the World Cup.

Winners: England

Runner-up: Uruguay

3rd place: Germany; 3-1 victory over Argentina in the 3rd place game

I want to thank you all for the tactical advice. It worked wonders for me in my first season with Hercules.

The first two of the above tactics were used during that season. the third one is being tested now in cup at the beginning of the second season and it looks promising

Overall a very pleasing season, the previous 5 were avoiding relegation by the skin of our teeth. This season we had two players in double figures. The 1st year youth intakes are now at a must have in the first team as the non newgen players are getting older and need replacing. I have worked it so this is now a possibility so as we lose these players we have replacements.

Gavin Allen 27I's contract expired in June but he stayed on a month-to-month contract.  I offered him an extension numerous times throughout the season.  On January 21, 2031, he finally agreed to contract talks.  Now, he locked up again as a Farnborough player.

Wuhan Three Towns - Season Review 2033

China Super League - 14th

2132411687_Screenshot(307).thumb.png.634c5ab73b53adba15a279c400f2c0c7.png

Another season of survival, originally I thought it was going to be beyond us due to the first team players leaving (or so I thought), in the end only one actually left us and the others stayed on month to month contracts.  We started the season how we ended last season with a pretty rubbish run with only one win against DL Pro in the first 12 games, I was fearing the worst but then out of nowhere we smashed in two 4-0 wins in a row.  This was followed a few games later with a 3 game winning run and a goalless draw to the eventual champions before securing safety with 2 games to go and our season fizzled out without even a goal in the final three games.

Squad

612957787_Screenshot(308).thumb.png.73ea76d2e5273906af905c27d23b8688.png

Despite thinking I was going to lose a majority of the first team, we ended up only losing Guo Qi 22h as I had him set for release in order to get our committed spending down so I could offer contracts to others.  The rest of them just decided to stay on month to month contracts which I didn't think was going to be an option but I'm quite happy with those turn of events.  Yusup-Ali got injured near the halfway point of the season and Gao Sheng 24d took over and played well enough to keep the position full time which is the first time in the save that I've had a regen goalkeeper full time.  Zhu Zhigang 24g came in to fill the place of Guo QI 22h and did okay but I'm hoping now with a full season under his belt he'll kick on next season.  Liang Xiaodong 28b was the other player to come in and play a good amount of game time, I was forced into this with him playing really well for the U23 team and Zhu Jiarong 22e not playing well at all.

Li Weijie 27c was again our top scorer although he didn't play quite as well this season.

Another so called golden generation and the top few guys look promising, quite a few unambitious players and not many good personalities.

The player picked out by the HOYD was Ma Weizhe 33a

Finances

The state of the this season's losses don't look too bad as the board pumped in three £550k injections, never before have they injected that much money so I don't know why they have decided to start now.  Our sponsorship rose from £550k to £575k which is an almost comical increase.  For the third season running we had 1,563 season tickets so I'm thinking that must be some sort of bug but I will give benefit of the doubt to just not having many fans and I can't say we are playing well enough to actually attract many more fans to come down.  Maybe a good cup run would be just the answer but one day we'll get there.

Next Season

Again, survival is key, just try and build the club rep little by little and hope that at some point it pays off because all I want is an upgrade to something.

Here we go again

Decent start, 6th after the win against Newcastle

Actually go up to 3rd inplay when leading 1-0 against Brighton

Lose that game 4-1 and here comes the awful run of not winning a single game after one bad loss!

Itching to give this challenge another go. I haven't started it properly this year.

One question though. This issue with non-contract players transfer listed by the club when you takeover. Is there any way to remove them from the transfer list?

I have had a couple of test starts in England, and every time I have lost up to a handful of players because of this.

It just makes the challenge quite a lot harder :)

Not a deep class but it does match most of what the HOYD promised: A good goalkeeper (Michael Young), a good forward (Jack Lucero).  The surprises were the pair of back line players (Wade Andrews and Jason Charlton).  They are much needed for our leaky defense.

Great response there to the relegation @Padders

 

How is your squad quality looking? Do you see players with the potential to push you up to the top 4? 

No I don't unfortunately

Haven't had a world class midfielders for ever. Literally can't remember that last decent one I had

My best center back is 33yr old 

My goalkeeper is also 33 yr old and haven't had a decent one come through since the bug was fixed!

Haven't had a wonderkid for over 5 years

Can't seem to get a good bunch all together

Well that intake preview wasn't too far off! Not a bad first bunch at all:

Youth Candidates S1

With only 17 first team players before this, 3 of which had grey star current ability, I think all of these guys will be staying.

2 or 3 will be in and around the first team squad immediately and more if injuries/suspensions kick in.

Also extended my stay by 2 years:

Contract signed

So all is good...just as long as we stay in the division!

VCN Table @ Youth Intake Day

Wish me luck! If I avoid relegation then I think we're set for a much better time next season.

I had a promising cm come through with a good personality and I thought I'd try and hold his progression back a bit by not playing him in the hope id tie him down to a long term deal when he turned 18.

What actually happened is he decided he was too good for me without ever playing a game and he has left on a free transfer. Back fired spectacularly :rolleyes: gutted as I have waited 8 years for a good cm 

Lesson learned for the next one

Haven't posted here in a while, but already in 2042/2043. Last season ended with 5th place in la liga, cup final and europa league semi final (eliminated against Juventus/Zebre). Here are some key players too:

I had a promising cm come through with a good personality and I thought I'd try and hold his progression back a bit by not playing him in the hope id tie him down to a long term deal when he turned 18.

What actually happened is he decided he was too good for me without ever playing a game and he has left on a free transfer. Back fired spectacularly :rolleyes: gutted as I have waited 8 years for a good cm 

Lesson learned for the next one

Feel your pain, I haven't had a decent CM for decades!

I always struggle for cm's and wing backs on this game I've not had many good ones in years of playing the game

I almost always try to retrain wingbacks/fullbacks into DMs.

Which nation are you playing in. Do the rules for that league prevent you from pinning them down for a long time as soon as they emerge?

I usually find a formula where they are committed to the club for at least 4 years.

I'm playing in turkey, he stayed on his original youth contract and wouldn't sign a professional contract, I usually try and sign my good players onto a 5 year with 3 year optional when they turn 18, even on the fist contract I usually add a 3 year option but he didn't accept it unfortunately

Can you not offer a full time contract from the start? Ideally with at least one year's optional extension.

Don't give them what they want. Give them what they need. (Captivity).

One more thing. You might offer a player a full time contract (which will kick in when they're 17 or something) and their demands revert back to a youth contract, but that's probably because you're low-balling them.

A better season all round 

image.png.602e1997ca7b047eff459be85d3f55fa.png

12th place finish is easily my best so far 

image.thumb.png.588ba0cc91a8bb882a033cf6dbe6ede0.png

Defence is still a big problem for me and gk

my current gk and one cb are untagged so were probably talking L/M on the list:lol:

image.thumb.png.d144afa0914955f2b66c98f11d6ce693.png

got high hopes for nacak, easily the best youngster I have had in the last 3 years

only give contracts to 4 players from the intake

image.thumb.png.807235d52bc5ee50240d76114bdabd71.png

cm I lost on a free, may not look amazing to some but he is class for the level I'm at atm, gutted :(

For anyone that might have followed my season reports, Demirci was a youngster I was really excited about

Its been a rocky ride with him, two years ago he got to he last three days of his contract after refusing  to sign for 3 years 

To my surprise he caved in but this year he has missed training three times due to wanting to move

I chucked him in the u19s for a couple of weeks and he signed a new contract and all is well for now

image.thumb.png.015fc06886a31a7529fa66c0ca02739b.png

he does have a problem with injuries but they tend to be a couple of days at a time and he rarely misses a game

image.png.cc4585df1c9dc71beb9cf4bf85a05bd4.png

happy with my facilities and really happy to have boosted the youth recruitment up so much 

hopefully this will mean a better standard of player coming through
