Chengfeng Season Review 31/32

Table - Squad - U23 Squad - U19 Squad - Transfers - Finances

Incredible Season in the Jia League and we go straight back up. Only loosing 6 and drawing 5 games, the promotion pretty much was never in doubt, even tho it looks close because in the end we lost a few, playing our younger players.

This years intake was pretty good and I hope there will be some players providing at least some depth in the future.

The two best of them seem to be Fu Yibing and Bai Yang

Our best player Hen Sen signed a new Deal and he is becoming a club icon, with his 6th straight season as the clubs topscorer

Unfortunately we lost our best prospect, due to the relegation release clause but that means some money in the bank and upgrading the youth recruitement to good. Lets hope we'll see this already next intake. Also loosing right back Ma Peng hurts as we have no other good one in the pipeline. But he served us well

Next season will be another survival season in the Chinese Super League. I guess we will have the worst squad but there is always a fighting chance I guess.

Question @BrentmeisterHow do you embed the pictures so they dont show up that big?

if you double click them, you can resize them. I usually make the size 500 and keep the aspect ratio

2026/2027 review

Manager profile | Squad pt. 1 / pt. 2 | U19 squad | Matches pt. 1 / pt. 2 / pt. 3 | Youth intake | Table

We are quietly starting to stabilize in the second-best Dutch division, where we are no longer sucked into the relegation battle. It has taken some time to adapt the squad to the desired game plan, and several of our aging players are gradually been replaced by younger and faster types who have received more targeted training. We celebrate an intake that surpasses what one would normally see under these circumstances, which has given way to quite a few young forces on the first team.

Some of our profiles - Mirac Akdeniz (25) and top scorer Marijnissen (28) have started to demand a transfer to a bigger club. I have become more open to the idea as more of the young players start to step up. Jonathan Linkers and Jaap Pannekoek in particular have done well and established themselves. We are also well covered with talents at OMC to replace Marijnissen should he leave us. Sadly, both Roda and ADO Den Haag are keen to get their hands on Linkers this summer, and Linkers could be seduced by playing time in Eredivisie next season.

I like the team name, and that's a very nice youth intake.

Let's break this down, in the winter window, Chairman Andy has sold my best center forward, best center midfielder, best center back and starting goalkeeper.  Thanks @$$hole!

How frustrating, fees are tiny as well. Last time my chairman tried to do that I asked him to reconsider then offered the player to clubs. Accepted an offer, once he agreed to go I delayed it then cancelled it on the last day of the window. 

I sold a different player to boost the finances and he hasn't done it again

End of Season 2 - we are mired in a relegation battle and this happens - in Europe already - albeit for maybe a short trip! We had an easy run only facing one other top flight side the whole way through.

I'll keep that in mind for his next fire sale.

This is my intake preview for the 2035/36 season. It's also the one that produced my greatest ever player to date. Will reveal who it is on Saturday.

Man i really got that CL victory at the right moment. Ever since we completed the challenge and i went on with the game buying players ( I want to surpass the other Manchester clubs with accumulated prizes) not a single decent intake has come by.

Last 3 years would have been heartbreaking if it wouldnt have been for the CL victory.

After a decent preview, I was delighted that it proved to be accurate.  A fine intake.

NK Dravograd - 2023/24

League Table (11th) | Slovenian Cup (Qualifying Round)Transfers | Squad Best XI | Moments to Remember

A much, much improved season on our side as we soar to a new high position of 11th. We still struggle to find consistency but we did pick up some really good wins across the season. We started off flying, and by the end of August, we had already accumulated half of our points total from last season. September was a struggle, we picked up one point from a possible fifteen, but October/November/December saw us retain our patchy form. In the end, we were safe with about four games left to play in the season. The Slovenian Cup was extremely rubbish as we lost to fellow Second League side Drava but we should really have beaten them. We let a couple of youngsters go out on loan, and Marko Lah 22A and Denis Kranc 22B joined the first team. Thinking about demoting Lah 22A back to the U19s for next year though, as he didn't really develop and we don't have much spots in the first team for him.

Key Players

Cene Kitek | Domen Bevk | Rok Stankovic

Kitek was superb across the season and I think, if I'm not mistaken, he's our first player to break the 7.00 average rating over the course of a season. He's a marvellous player, and he's also decided not to push for a move any more. I just need to convince him to sign a new deal and we can all live happily ever after. Domen Bevk, like Kitek once upon a time, has decided he is too good for us. To be fair, he's absolutely right. He delivered another good season from central midfield, with seven goals and seven assists. Rok Stankovic was much, much improved from his one clean sheet last year. He's not amazing by any stretch but he's good enough right now and seemingly improving every season. 

Youth Preview | Youth Intake

Tadej Fridl 24A | Uros Krajnc 24B | Gregor Horvat 24C

A weaker intake than previous. No standout stars as of yet but these three could amount to something. Signed another 5 on top of this in positions we needed and we'll see if anything comes from them.

Next Season

More of the same I guess, I hope for improvements but we're expected to battle relegation again. Also excited to see Damjan Rozman 23B who will begin to make his mark on the first team (I hope!) I'd also love some better progress in the cup.

End of Season Review

Season 2047/48

Season Summary

With an immediate return to the second tier secured and a club record run in the domestic cup, it was a highly successful season.

Season Details

League Table - We were exceptional throughout the campaign and won the title and thus secured promotion with two games remaining.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - Consistency was the name of the game as we churned out win after win.  Even when we played poorly. we would draw the game, picking up vital points.

TOTO KNVB Beker - Our best cup run yet, as we made it through to the third round for the first time, where we were comprehensively beaten at home by Eredivisie side FC Utrecht.  The three onw away win at another top flight side, FC Twente, was simply amazing.

Pre Season Friendlies - We had a mixed pre season, as we lost three of our eight fixtures.

Squad - Whilst the players are definitely improving, I am not convinced we are strong enough to survive.  Time will tell.

Squad Dynamics - It is still rather nice.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - Over £700,000 was raised by player sales in a bid to balance the books.

Youth Candidates - An exceptional intake where most of the players were offered professional terms.  Jurensley Constancia YP48B418 looks like the best prospect.

Finances - Unfortunately we have slipped back into the red as we hemorrhage cash in the third tier.

Key Players

Yordi Joutsocheras YP40J298 - Another excellent season from the striker.

Berkan Yılmazer YP39G279 - The Turkish central midfielder is the first name on the teamsheet.

Marc Peeters YP44A353 - In his first season as number one, the twenty year old goalkeeper rose to the occasion beautifully.

Mike Knoester YP43H344 - Playing on the right wing, the twenty year old had a real breakout season.

Romario Hasselbaink YP43I345 - The Suriname Under 21 international centre back has emerged as our best defender.

Next Season

Survival.  That is all I care about.

Yeah, I am semi-pro. I also thought it was mandatory. I'm using the vanilla database (21.4) so I guess it's like that down here in the pits.

Edit: Looking around it seems the professional teams have it for all their players, but the semi-pro don't... This is a random player from another non-pro team:

That's it, in Spain release clauses are mandatory for Pro teams, not for semi-pros or amateurs. Once you go pro you would have to negotiate a release clause in all contracts.

@keeper#1 if you offer optional 1 year extensions in their contracts when you sign them, you can trigger it when the chairman accepts bids without your consent and it cancels the bid. I done it a few times in Brazil.

That's how I kept all of them on the roster in the summer window!

Farnborough 2032 Youth Intake

He hit on the forward and center-back prospect.  He brought in another good goalkeeping prospect.  The wingers look like they will be boom or bust prospects and the central midfield is lacking.

That said, this is our best ever class technically and physically.  We took a slight dip mentality but all told a good class.

JS Hercules 2024 Season Review. Slight improvement

Ps4WqCl.jpg

Position Graph | Fixtures prt1 Fixtures prt2 | Transfers | Finances

OdmnL7d.jpg

On the Field

Suomen Cup: the second round was once again our final station. again defeated by a lower league side. Really want to see improvement there next season.

Veikkausliiga: A tougher season where we played arguable worse than last year. A good showing in the relegation table saw us save. And because HJK won the double 8th was good enough for european pkayoffs. 

We played Honka Espoo and took them all the way, but came up short with the penalties.

Player Highlights

Topscorer: Taneli KohonenThe winger once again got topscorer. this year with 3 goals less than last year for 6 total.

Best Player: Lassi Jokelainen YP2H7.10 overal rating was the best this year. And for the first time in these highlights a youth product takes the spot. This was his breakout year and dominated.

Best player a defender and our topscorer has 6 goals... that sums up the season well.

 

A the end of the year we say goodby to Sami KarjalainenThe winger was with us from the beginning and was a central piece in our promotion pushes. Better play and age have caught up with him since then. His contract was up, and while his leadership will be missed, his absense opens up a place for a number of young talents itching to go (and who cost me about 18K a year less)

Sami is our all time leader in apearances and goals scored. It will be long before either record is broken.

Of the field

The finances continue their steady decline. so far the board is still willing to provide the occasional cash injection. If those ever stop we are in deep trouble. 

the only facility we increased this year is the junior coaching, which is now rated as excelent. 

Also a 'fun fact' is that all of our top league competitors have an average attendance that could sell out our stadium 3 times over. meanwhile our best attended match of the season did not even fill half the stadium.

Personal

I got my last two coaching badges this year. 

Youth Intake

CBXAFil.jpg

(I forgot to take a screenshot as they came in. So this is from the offseason.)

Lots of talent, which I like. Not much developed yet though. Also, the personalities (not shown here, sorry) aren't great.

I was glad there was finally some Strikers coming through. Marcus Kuisma YP4B even got 4 starts during the tail end of the season and played well. He scored once, and his movement was encouraging.

Chengfeng Season 32/33 Review

Table - Squad - U23 Squad - U19 Squad - Transfers - Finances

We stay up with 30 points and I think the 9 wins are the best we ever achieved in the CSL. He Sen gets another team high 16 goals. The best thing about the season is, that we managed to convince the board to upgrade the youth recruitement to excellent and I really hope that the next few intakes will show that. I feel like we didnt make alot of progress in the last few years as we are not getting any players in who are an improvement to our squad. But thats party of this challenge I think :) The preview wasnt that exciting

1226556644_e8681vU-Imgur.jpg.04546a0ef9fd39cd3c376f887b01ccb5.jpg

but I think we got a few good players out of it.

194333933_4LBEJg9-Imgur.jpg.acb4eb2f721690d6d6e2e2df7883f828.jpg

The two standout players are Bai Ran (33A) and Tao Junchen (33B). I really hope that Junchen will develop nicely as we could use an upgrade in goal.

898508571_BaiRan(33A).jpg.4e78688f35eae3abf9f8b9ca9b6d45ca.jpg142510850_TaoJunchen(33B).jpg.47ec2d681390a921c5885e34fc91564f.jpg

We will try to survive in the CSL and slowly making our younger players part of the first team squad. Fu Yibing (32A) is developing nice and could soon become a first team regular.

No Transfers this year, but we let alot of players go in order to reduce the wage budget. I hope we kept the biggest talents.

Man i really got that CL victory at the right moment. Ever since we completed the challenge and i went on with the game buying players ( I want to surpass the other Manchester clubs with accumulated prizes) not a single decent intake has come by.

Last 3 years would have been heartbreaking if it wouldnt have been for the CL victory. 

I know what you mean.

It's tempting to believe that your team will just get better and more successful, but my experience doesn't reflect that.

I did the challenge with Chita (in Russia) and we won the league once. The next 4 seasons we finished 2nd, 2nd, 3rd, and 3rd, and that's where I gave up on the challenge.

I did complete the challenge with Palermo, but again after winning the league (just the once) the following 4 seasons we finished 2nd, 5th, 2nd and 3rd, and it wasn't that I wasn't trying to win the league. I was. I was just lucky that in the last season we somehow won the Champions League. If we hadn't, it might have taken years, or never.

I suppose if your facilities are not maxxed out, one might assume that eventually you'll have a bigger upswing than before, but it is very possible, (inevitable I think) that you're going to have a chain of bad intakes and your team will regress.

Basically, I was lucky with Palermo.

I think that I've had a lot of good intakes recently (even though I'm only in Eng League 1). I'd say 8 of the last 10 have been ok, and I've had a promising preview for the season I'm in the middle of, but I doubt my luck can hold forever.

I think that with my facilities almost being maxed out, my Training Facilities are now State of the Art quality, while my Youth Facilities are being upgraded to Superb, and my Youth Recruitment and Junior Coaching being Exceptional, my intakes at Siena are getting better and better. It just feels like the facilities getting upgraded and actually being on the verge of having the best facilities in the entire country of Italy makes the team feel like the place to come to if you want to be made into a Serie A player nowadays for me.

Helps that we've got so much money now at Siena which is really useful.

We do love some bratwurst! After knocking them out of the CL in the first KO round two seasons ago, we do it yet again :eek: Özkan (our newest wonderkid) is really starting to earn his stripes.

Might sound weird, but I liked things better when I was crying about giving a player €400 p/w in stead of 350 :D These contracts are just getting out of hand and are just way out of line for our club, even for a quality player as Carment.

Yikes off the field event having such an effect is rough. I know I had a player who's bravery went from 13 to 1 after breaking his leg, but at least that happened in a game. 

It's happened 3 times during this save, this is probably the most extreme decline though

Farnborough 2031-32 Season Review

https://i.imgur.com/h1BWFhl.pngLogo_Farnborough_FC.png

Fixtures 1, 2, 3: Strong first half of the season.  Then, Chairman Andy commenced the Great Fire Sale of January 2032 which saw five starters sold.  The second half of the season exposed our lack of depth in defense but the offense did its best to outscore the opposition and keep us in games.

League Table: We banked a lot of points in the first half of the season so even when our form dropped off in the second half, we still found a way to finish in 12th place safe from relegation.  Salford and Chesterfield fall down the trap door into non-league football.  Lincoln City, winners of the Vanarama National in 2031, win back-to-back league championships with a League Two title in 2032.  Runners-up Grimsby and third-place Tranmere will be joining them in League One.  Oldham advances via the playoffs.

First Half: We played average football in the first half with nine wins, nine losses and five draws on a +6 goal differental.  35 goals scored and 29 goals allowed.

Second Half: Margins tightened in the second half of the season with 32 goals scored and 31 goals allowed but the shots allowed per game went through the roof and offensive chances were fewer.

xG General Performance: Our possession/pass completion was strong.  Tackling improved.  Shots on target stayed static but our xG goals stayed above 1.00 per game.  We overperformed on offense and underperformed on defense.

I'll be interested to see what the board has in mind.

Clause question

Bo Joseph 29F and Stephen Lynch 30D were sold to Derby County.  Derby County have been promoted to the English Premier League.  Neither of these players are EPL quality and won't get first team action in the 2032-33 season with Derby.  Do I sell the clauses?  Joseph's is just over 1 million pounds and Lynch's clause is around 3.5 million pounds.

I hesitated on selling a clause for 7m and 6 months later they sold the player for 1m. I tend to sell most of them especially if I don't have much in the balance

It depends on how much that money is to you. If it is, take it now. Money in the bank beats potential money everytime. and maybe it keeps your chairman away from your youngsters for a while

I've got just over 2 million in the bank.  Lynch's clause is 3.84 million and he's been demoted to the U18s after spending the spring with the U23s.

I'd sell it as it might stop your chairman from looking to sell players at the next opportunity but that's just my opinion I'm a fairly cautious person

I'm not really feeling the Spanish league, so I'm trying a bit here and there for now. I'm having a go in Northern Ireland now, so I'll update from there, but don't know if I can commit to it for the long run yet....

S13 - Ligue 1 (3rd) - Coupe de France (Semi Final) - Champions League (Qtr Final

Squad - U19 - Out on loan - Transfers

Transfers

Majewski left for Caen on a transfer-free basis. He didn't get to play that much anymore and was allowed to leave, he didn't seem far from his potential and that was insufficient for our current level. Jabnoun was chosen as Ligue 2 goalkeeper of the year at FC Lorient, Corradi in the third division. Because we have two very good goalkeepers, they have to stay there for another year. The Belgian winger Dewitte was also allowed to gain experience in the first team at a lower level, the competition on his position is enormous with Traoré, GasparBarbier and the up-and-coming Amisador. Bamba could go for 88 million to Hertha BSC, the winner of the CL last season (screen)

Ligue 1

P$G missed out on some points at the beginning of the season. In the first five games, we won four, but lost 4-0 in Paris. They were mighty against us, but in those first five games they drew twice: in Toulouse and Monaco. So the season could have started much worse for us, but throughout the year P$G and Monaco unfortunately showed their endless class. Almost no points were given away, impressive. On the Monaco pitch, we won 0-2, a highlight and only our second win against them after 13 seasons. We drew four times and lost four times (P$G 2x, Monaco and Montpellier). We ended up finishing third after two seasons as number two, the difference is small this season tho. P$G became champions for the 17th time in a row btw. If we want to take over from them, we will have to do it in the direct duels against them.

Champions League

After a disappointing group stage last season, we have come back on top this time. We actually came first in our treacherous group with Inter, Porto and Olympiakos (screen). Crucial were the away win at Porto and the 4-1 at home against Inter.

Then we met an old acquaintance: Bayern Munich, where two seasons ago we went on to win magisterially 0-4. At Bayern, we repeated history.  Özkan scored the only goal in Germany! In the return match, we missed three of our star players due to suspension (screen), but gave Bayern no chance: 3-0.  In the quarter finals we met Man Utd, winners of the CL two seasons ago. Against Man Utd we unfortunately came up a tad short. We played well twice in what were rather balanced matches, but Man Utd were just a bit better so they deserved to go through. In the end they even won the CL after beating Real Madrid and Dortmund.

Coupe de France

In the semi-final, we got the draw that everyone wants to avoid: an away game at P$G. Fought but lost 3-2 in the end. 

Highlighted players

We have a second French international. Bamba has been around for a while and already got a few caps, but now our other wonderkid Gaspar could also report to Les Bleus. MedaneCarment also got a taste of international football.

The preview promised us a golden generation. It didn't really live up to that expectation, but our team is just pretty strong at the moment:

Özipek is the most promising. I don't see a striker in him, his finishing is too low and he is also a lightweight. He will probably be turned into a right winger. P$G and Monaco have already shown interest, so who knows, this kid could go far. 
 

Poached player

Another one of our poached players has made a nice transfer: this time Pastor, who went from Nancy to Reims for four million. He has grown into a very solid goalkeeper, a bit small though... He is now wanted by Monaco by the way.

Summary

Great season, but in every league we bump into rock solid teams. P$G needs no explanation, Man Utd won the CL in the end. Hopefully we can take the next step soon....

I'm not really feeling the Spanish league, so I'm trying a bit here and there for now. I'm having a go in Northern Ireland now, so I'll update from there, but don't know if I can commit to it for the long run yet....

I am the same with Spain.  I have never enjoyed managing there.

ACN Siena 1904 - 2035/36 Youth Intake

855858190_JLABYouthIntake.png.dce200a35f6cb2ebcd12e448af750992.png

All of a sudden, as I change how everything is viewed, I get a really exciting picture that tells me that this team is getting better and better youth intakes. The realisation that we managed to get a talent as young and as impressive as Fedele Landi turning up in our youth intakes is making me more and more excited. How far he can develop remains to be seen, but given he's from Siena and he's got a Resolute personality, I want to make him the poster boy of Siena.

345501841_FedeleLandi.thumb.png.de947a9306d7624107a5e6b600911260.png

At the age of 15, Fedele Landi looks incredible. By far the best ever player to turn up in my youth intakes and someone that I can throw into the first team straight away and try and make sure that whatever I end up doing, that he needs to become a superstar for the club in the future. He's not a leader, but he's got the talent. The best 15 year old I've ever seen in one of my sides, and that says a lot.

1647912182_MatteoCabras.thumb.png.ae48860d56ebc0353c76460278d6a311.png

Matteo Cabras has potential, but unfortunately has got low determination as well. He does at least have some consistency on his side, which is better than being inconsistent. Still, if we can work on his low determination and get him improving, then we might have a really talented player in our ranks.

1396780224_MatteoSalvadori.thumb.png.bbc7e6d0b5d67bc18bd5398956ab339b.png

Matteo Salvadori doesn't have the best potential, but he has the talent that I am hoping for. Unfortunately, he doesn't the best consistency, which for me means that he might be a project that I might need to discard in the future if he doesn't get rid of that stigma in the future.

1903456859_MatteoPorro.thumb.png.59b29c69bfa734a6b3cd8ad6bcb2834f.png

Another young defender, and this time he is not only inconsistent, but he also has a best personality. It's rather frustrating to know that this is someone who has this much potential to grow, but doesn't have the drive to grow as much as I would like him to. It's a real shame indeed.

172289807_JuniorIke.thumb.png.d1c1229478a15c388b8fc28ad038ebcb.png

Junior Ike is my second Nigerian player to come through my ranks in recent years and once again is a Nigerian player that has decent potential. He is also resilient, which means that he will be able to handle pressure really well. It's just a shame that he's got so many talent goalkeepers in his way though.

1839822723_AxelWesterlund.thumb.png.bd5a7ed53bc891ab84bc09935791dc22.png

Axel Westerlund is someone that I am excited about, an attacking midfielder who can play in both the attacking midfielder and central midfielder roles relatively well, and he is consistent. Yes he has a balanced personality, but I don't mind that as long as he is able to develop really well. It's just a shame about his bravery though.

831358823_LucaMusella.thumb.png.f998276f80b32c317eebe564c07a475a.png

Luca Musella is a left wing-back that we are going to be traing to play as a left full-back. He is very consistent and has good potential to improve. The fact that he is considered to be an attacking full-back makes me excited for the future for when he is an option to bring into the side as someone who has pace and the willingness to attack. We've got a bright future in the game here.

Yeah, I can't really put my finger on why I didn't like it as much as I had hoped.

I'm flying through (doing poor!) in Northern Ireland and so far it's much more enjoyable for some reason.

Belfast Celtic - Season 2022/23 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

Northern Ireland is not a power house of football, and especially the 3rd tier is of quite the poor standard. So I went for a basic kick and run 4-4-2 to see how we'd fare. And we did well enough, in that we survived and avoided relegation. Only by a single point and a 5-1 loss away in the final match didn't make it look too good. Still, survival is survival and we live to fight another season. Starting the game with 1 central defender didn't help out. Also the Northern Irish likes their cup competitions!

In the Irish Cup we lost to Ards in the 4th round.

In the NIFL Cup we lost to PSNI in the 1st round.

In the Steel & Sons Cup we beat Malachians, Albert Foundry, Crumlin Utd and Ballymoney United before losing to Larne Olympic in the semi final.

In the Irish Intermediate Cup we beat Cookstown RBL, Rathfriland, St. James Swifts and Malachians before losing to Bangor in the quarter final.

Youth

A good looking preview, even if we don't have much in youth support yet.

Lots of potential, but it still felt a bit underwhelming, really.

Callum Hirthe 23p is a solid goalkeeper for this level, and he will soon be our first choice, I think.

All Northern Irish, with some partial Irish. Quite unsurprisingly.

NK Dravograd - 2024/25

League Table (12th) | Slovenian Cup (Qualifying Round) | Transfers | Squad | Best XI | Finances | Moments to Remember

It felt like this season was a regression but in truth, it was similar to last year. I think the difference was last season, we went on two seperate winless streaks of 6/7 whereas this year it was one big winless streak of twelve games. But the season followed a similar theme as last year: we started off red hot, beating Nafta who had come down from the top league. But then we were dumped out of the cup by a team in our league who we should've really been beating. Then, in a carbon copy of last year, we beat them in the next game! Annoying. Our safety was confirmed with two games left rather than four this year, and our 5-3 win over Drava in last game of the season saw them relegated instead of Dekani. Weirdly, our best XI doesn't include Peter Kogelnik, who was our top scorer with eight goals and played every game. Not sure what's going on there.

Key Players

Cene Kitek | Domen Bevk | Stas Dobaj

All three of these lads are very easily our best players, by a long way at this point. Kitek and Dobaj were central midfielders but are now rocks at the back as we wait for a youngster to come into the fold. Bevk is just a really good midfielder, despite not having the stats for free kicks and penalties, he manages to put a few away. Seven goals makes him our second top scorer, and eight assists is the best in our squad. I've thought all season I was going to lose Kitek on a free transfer, but one last roll of the dice saw him commit to another three years with us which is a huge boost.

Youth Preview | Youth Intake

Zan Oblak 25A | Domen Igerc 25B | Marko Kalin 24C

Oblak is a good prospect in a position we desperately needed backup. He's immediately our third best centre back. Igerc and Kalin might amount to something, the latter in particular has an excellent personality and determination. One frustrating thing I've noticed about my U19s is they don't have competitive fixtures, only friendlies. Annoying.

Next Season

It would be nice to have a cup run.
