At the end of the day, a really successful season. Considering our full-backs can't tackle, the centre-backs can't head, the wingers can't cross and the midfielders can't shoot, we did pretty well.

We started off pretty poorly, hovering just above the relegation zone but a winter run of 13 games unbeaten (9 of which were wins) propelled us into the play-offs. We looked good for it, playing some incredible football at times. Alas, the play-offs pitched us against Real Zaragoza, who upon scouting were revealed to possess a squad entirely of 4-5 star players.

We lost 3-6 and 3-5, 6-11 on aggregate..

We were actually 3-1 up in the first leg, and then everything they hit went in.
 

 

Our squad is absolutely stacked in midfield, but capable of being completely carved open at the back. I'm trying to bring through the next generation of defenders but it's definitely weakened us in the short term. Out wide Lorenzo Herrera 22e and Antonio Javier 22c are still doing their thing. Javier's pure physicality making up for his 7 finishing. Eloy 22g remains the sole threat in attack, banging in 32 goals and 12 assists in another landmark season.

Special mention to captain Deniz Portillo 22h who cemented a spot at CM as a DLP(s).



The Intake

1576240395_intakepreview.PNG.6db8dd9abaa0410632248e1efb3310f5.PNG
 

Not a golden generation this time around, just "an excellent group".


391647385_intakeproper.PNG.04c0a771ec284322a5d61a21eb51cd1b.PNG

 

In actuality, probably the best intake since the first season. Whatever you say, game.

Mohamed Quiñones 27a - Another CM, but I think he might have more potential than anyone in my squad (media description, hot prostpect on Club Info). Gonna throw him into some games to jump start his development. The name Mohamed and the Middle Eastern ethnicity is a nice touch of diversity though.

quintero.PNG.5696f50ad7a9dfd9e4607ab940c7348e.PNG

 

Carlos Quintero 27b - ANOTHER CM. He's getting trained as a CB because I literally have no room for more CMs and, apart from Heading, he's got the profile for it.

 



tchami.PNG.0b7a4ff527adabf77e7c903666d3c8d2.PNG

 

Éric Tchami 27c - You think he's a CB and then you look at his stats and realise, "oh, he's a DLP". ANOTHER MIDFIELDER. Like, for real, it's the strongest part of my squad and I have promising backups before this intake. I'm gonna try and turn him into a LB because I am desperate for one, even though he can't tackle, cross, mark or position himself....

Season review 2024/25

 

 

A season of ups and downs. I wasnt able to extend some contracts of our initial players, and they left us on various times during the season. The youngsters were not able to fully replace them on a consistent basis. Additionally we were hampered by many injuries, and our main striker, Linney, seems to have had his peak last year. He isnt that effective anymore and starts get slower. And so after a nice autumn we were falling down again the league table in spring. While we stayed in the league, which is positive, it was a drawback compared to last year. On the other hand more and more young players are appearing in the first team on a consistent basis. And I was able to convince the board at the start of the season to improve our recruitment. It helped, i am quite happy with the intake.

For next season i want to develop in the offseason one, or maybe even two tactics besides the 4-3-3, in order to have more options

Key players:

Luke Griffith - Ou main gaol scorer (thanks to being penalty taker) and most assists as well. Glad we didnt loose him in first season when he wanted to leave.

Dan Lavercomb - Still a reliant keeper

Jake O'Reilly - best young player, might become successor of Linney as top goalscorer.

Quick question.  Is there a way to add nations/leagues in a save as 'view only' (FM20)?.  I am regretting not loading the big 5 (in Europe) as view only in my Poland save.  When I try to add the leagues they seem to load as fully simulated (at least I think so, as its much slower than my previous saves on FM20). TIA

I can't remember how it is in FM20, but in FM21, you can.

Had alot of work so didnt play much, but was able to finish another season!

Chengfeng Season 42/43 Review

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

We finished third, which is quite an achievement. Really nice season for us with only 7 losses. Hope this will help our reputation grow further. 

Also another international player for our side and I think it wont be the last. We got real problems if there are youth internationals :D

AnotherInternational.png.ead93a0b4a4c2738a1b0332fd584f73d.png

Also another great preview, but I think the intake wasnt really a golden generation. And again only Chinese Players. Two standouts I think.

I hope Niu Xin is any good, because my current right backs are not really good.

First Team

Some progress really nice. Especially Zhao Ke (40A) and Wang Dezhi (41B). Dezhi already my first choice keeper, despite his age

WangDezhi(41B).png.91a2d1f65e5bdec65d9f57f3a6daa983.png

Also Wen Zhi (40C) is looking good

And of course still Niu Yifan, Zhei Jejiun and Liu Hongliang are important members.

End of Season Review

Season 2026/27

Unió Esportiva Extremenya

UE Extremenya - Wikipedia

Season Summary

We finished runners up in both the league and cup.  Very disappointing as we need to start winning some silverware.

Season Details

Europa Conference League - For the third year running we reached the second qualifying round though this time it was Cypriot outfit Apollon Limassol who beat us convincingly.

League Table - U. E. Santa Coloma dominated the league from start to finish.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - Poor form in the middle of the season prevented any title challenge materialising.

Copa Constitució - For the second year running we reached the final and again, it went to extra time.  Just like last year it also went to penalties and in a mirror image we lost again.

Pre Season Friendlies - In a repeat of last season we won twelve and lost one of our thirteen pre season matches.

Squad - The depth is even better as our youth academy starts to blossom.  We only have one original player left in the squad.

Squad Dynamics - It is still rather lovely isn't it?

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - None.

Youth Candidates - The best intake to date with plenty of good players.  The pick of them looks like central midfielder Tiago Mendes YP27A33.

Finances - Whilst we are in the black and the balance looks healthy, due to the high costs of our academy, we are projected to start losing money.

Key Players

Samuel Martínez - The last remaining original player left in the squad.  The centre back's days are surely numbered.

Julio César Villalonga YP27I41 - Having just arrived at the club in the recent youth intake, he has hit the ground running, scoring xx goals in xx appearances.

Tiago Mendes YP27A33 - The star of the recent intake, the central midfielder will surely become an international sooner rather than later.

Hugo Freitas YP27J42 - He may be new to the club, though he is so much better than the other goalkeepers he is an automatic starter.

Mirko Giudici YP27K43 - Central defender who has formed a good partnership with Martínez.

Next Season

Surely we can mount a title challenge?

Marchamalo - Youth Intake - April 2028

CD_Marchamalo.png

The promised intake arrived and was a refreshing sight to see 5 star PA on multiple prospects (although some of the 4 star PA prospects from the last 2 intakes are now 5 stars). This intake also provides an Argentinian and Brazilian, along with some strong personalities.

Spoiler

Spoiler

APnb49.jpg

José Vittor (28a) has loads of potential and decent stats to get some appearances in the first team next year. A Fairly Sporting personality is not great, however.

Spoiler

PfMtE0.jpg

Eder Hernández (28b) is the winger to be more excited about. Taller, quicker, and with a Fairly Professional personality, expect him to develop if we can find him playing time in front of our two solid right wingers currently.

Spoiler

Fh70cv.jpg

Erinaldo (28c) is probably the most first team-ready out of the prospects this year. Will need to get a bit stronger and quicker as he ages, but has the technical ability to step into the first team immediately.

Spoiler

t1saVY.jpg

Julián Rodriguez (28d) will get some playing time next year to develop, since we have been losing our midfielders to release clauses this season.

Spoiler

MmhknQ.jpg

An Unambitious personality lets Charles Adebombo (28e) down a bit, but it does not change the fact that he will be a starting GK next season since we have no better options at the club.

Spoiler

Nc0Pbf.jpg

Alberto Iniesta (28f) is one of the fan favorites from this intake. Less PA than the others, but has a Driven personality and a Reserved media handling style. Already has more crossing and dribbling than most of our wing backs.

Once again, not a great intake according to the preview

Lots of 5 star potential, but given the overall quality of my team, that does not mean a lot

Looks like a decent prospect at fullback, would like for him to be a little bit quicker

Pacey striker, could do a job as a Deep Lying Forward actually

Another pacey striker, if only he could finish...

Solid option for CAM, needs to improve his passing

Solid future option for CM, agressive as we all like them

The Spanish 2nd tier is weird. B teams can't be promoted to the same division as their 1st team, so even though Barcelona B are walking the league, 2nd and 3rd will go up automatically. Then there's two B teams in the play-off positions, extending the spots down to 9th.

We're having a very frustrating season yet are only 1 point off the play-offs.

Quick update, after a really bad start I wasn't able to turn the ship around. In the last few matches the players were unhappy with me, which led to me getting sacked. But I had a nice few seasons, I'm 100% trying this challenge again. But for the next time I think picking a smaller, not Big5 country.

But for now I will follow your youth adventures. Thanks for having me!

final league standings (me 18th)

Ungmennafélag Njarðvíkur - Season 2024 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

Well, the seasons here are really short, so another got finished quite fast. This was a really strange season. We were amazing the first half, but from around half way we started to have issues with fatigue and I had to rest the best players regularly the rest of the season. That really hampered our results, and we had a horrible end to the season. I mean, look at this position graph:

kRdvuRW.png

We were in contention for the tile before we imploded. Not a good end to the season, and it's something we need to work on going forward.

In the Deildabikar we finished 2nd in our group and got knocked out.

In the Bikarkeppni we beat Grótta, Breiðablik, Víkingur Ò., and Grindavík to reach the final. There we lost on pens to Valur.

We also had our first go in Europe. So in the Europa Conference League we beat Bohemian of Ireland before losing to Sint-Truidense of Belgium.

Youth

No golden generation this time, but I hope for a good intake.

vtV7y0A.png

Good potential and some better personalities than previously.

ULAMRKb.png

Another promising striker, and we are getting a lot of them now. I'd rather have some other positions in the future.

Only Icelandic players in this intake.

Vikeologist's 27th Folkestone Intake Report and 23rd Intake Review 

See the source image

20210513091035_1.thumb.jpg.42e542115cc75468a137ad3bada6c52b.jpg

When I saw the intake, I wanted to quit the challenge. It’s not so much that it’s bad, but that with vastly improved facilities, I’ve now had 3 bad intakes in a row.

Since ratings are based on a comparison to the quality of your squad, I’m not sure if intakes really do go in cycles, or it just seems that way, but this is a crushing blow.

I can’t even. Really I can’t.

 

YP23 Review

Alan Bradley 23a – Was supposed to be a promising centre back but whenever I played him he stank the team out. Dropped him, Released him. My scouts don’t rate him. Good riddance.

Graham Cattell 23b – Still with us, but has been on loan the last 3 seasons, and he hasn’t developed much. On the bubble, but I can’t see him being on our books much longer.

Jody Johnson 23c – Promising goalie. On loan at our affiliate club Halifax. Being a goalie, it all depends on what happens with the other goalies at the club.

Joe Aspinall 23d – Young striker. Has played 394 minutes this season, mostly as a sub, without finding the net once. We’re an attacking, high scoring team, so he’s nearing the end of his chances. He’s not even that promising. If I’d had a promising striker in the above intake, he’d be toast. As it is, I have a right winger I’ve been developing as a central midfielder, but I think it’s time for him to take Joe’s place as 3rd on the striker depth chart.

 

OK. I’m going to stop there. Not helping with my frame of mind. Turns out I’ve had 4 garbage intakes in a row.

Correction- This was the intake from 4 years ago, but that means that it was my 5th to last intake. Had a quick look at my YP24 intake, and there is one good player. So. OK. One good player in my last FIVE intakes.

Except that's not completely accurate. There are a couple of potentially mildly nice surprises in YPs 25 and 26. Mildly.

Real Jaén Club de Fútbol

Season 7 - 2027/28

LaLiga SmartBank (2nd Tier) - 8th place - lost in Play-off Semi Final
Copa Del Rey - 2nd Round

 

Squad - Transfers - Table

319340710_minitable.PNG.d3abddb7df063a980a8d5622b4d1a2b3.PNG

 

We managed to sneak into the play-offs on the final day of the season but lost main striker Eloy 22g to a torn hamstring in the penultimate game. We drew the first leg 3-3, coming back from 1-3 down. However, the 2nd leg was lost 0-1 due to a weak set-piece goal. We didn't deserve promotion and we are NOT ready for La Liga.

Not going to talk about individual players much, it's pretty much the same as last season with the lads from the last intake being integrated. They are a cut above, though, bags of potential. That said, we are still very poor at the back (56 conceded) and until we can shave 15 goals off we aren't going up. The defenders are considered 3rd tier standard players, but they are (slowly) improving and the club as a whole are still propped up by Eloy and the midfield options. The things I'd do for a big, old fashioned centre half though....


My tactic that ensured a comfortable 5th place finish last year stopped working immediately this season, and I spend the majority of the year flitting between 433, 4231 and 442 with varying types of blocks, pressing, passing, tempo etc etc. I couldn't settle. At the end of the the day, I don't have the wide players or strikers for a 442 and given that CM is the area I'm strongest in, I have to play 433.

Haven't even tagged Samuel. Unambitious players can do one.


alcazar.PNG.3f5774636556f77d4ae756e9396a15e3.PNG


Mo Alcázar 28a - Might be the man to challenge Eloy eventually. He's very close to him already in regards to his raw goalscoring attributes.


angel.PNG.37e4c6a61d474d2e57c8c6b426ac14a1.PNG

Jesús Ángel 28b - I've needed a wide player to come through.

So I had a couple of goes on this challenge last year and got close with FC United. A couple of Champions League Semi-finals close in the end. I tried the ultimate challenge this year but it beat me so badly I disappeared to play Assassins Creed instead. But now I'm back with another crack at the youth challenge!

I decided to go to Brazil, because why not? (i guess there's probably lots of reasons why not but I'm here now)

Mirassol look pretty good. nice size stadium and already average recruitment and youth set up. So here goes getting the sack before the first 3 months are over!

Just had a board takeover. The new chairman made two bids with clauses: 47,5M and 74M. :eek:

During this save I have managed to get a nice amount of money by selling players and lately with Premier League TV rights. Then this guy Dennison just wastes everything for two players.

I cannot cancel these transfers. Do I have to just accept them (if they go through) and put the players in reserves?

I think I lost motivation to play this game. :mad:

If you can, at any time, cancel them, then do so. If not, then dump them in the reserves and try to sell them asap. They cannot be used for any match at all, nor any mentoring or similar. It doesn't stop you from playing this challenge though, we've had this happen before. You won't really struggle with money as long as you stay in the PL, so it won't hurt you too much.

SVV Scheveningen - Season 4 (27/28)

OxpeJsM.png

 

tzwrJiB.png

Player Stats / Transfers

6th spot! and 65 points...only 4 behind promotion!. Great run and finally a season where we didn't lose the last 4 games. We finally also  won the first round in the playoffs beating Almere City. Sadly we lost against the Eredivisie club Willem II in penalties...I needed 2 days to cool off after that loss. We got knocked out in 2nd round in the Cup again, this time by Groningen. The amazing season is mostly thanks to A-KUM who scored amazing 34 league goals!  and had an average score of 7,22. And ofcourse teh rock in the goal, VAN DER  MAATEN with averege of 7,12. One of our regens has beter rating than him now...but i'm reluctant to replace him. Next year I will have to due to his age so he will play less. This year also saw some regens breaking into the first team. ADENIE, teh star regen from last seaosn became a starter right out of the bat at 15 years and is now at the end of teh season a  3,5 star player.  Lets see how far he will get. Hopefully I can keep him untill promotion. DZAFIC and EVERS played many games, DZAFIC breaking into first 11 quite early in the season, while EVERS jumped in at the end. DZAFIC had a brilliant rookie season with 14 goals and 16 assists! In defense WINTER replaced VAN KOESVELD as 1st LB more or less halfway the season. KRUIPER on the other hand has surpussed our star duo in central defend.  His growth this seaosn was amazing, he went from 2,5 star to 4 stars and might be even our best player atm. VAN DER MEULEN has stopped progressing sadly...I hope he is not yet at his max  as he's not Eredivisie material yet. My AM claims he has room to grow...but we will see.

Overall I think we now have two players who could play at right side of Eredivisie in KRUIPER and PLEUNIS. A-KUM  is a great scorer but its mostly due to his speed, I doubt it will work in eredivisie. He will not get that many chances. If we manage to get 5 or 6 Eredivisie-worthy players at the end of the season I think we might make a great chance to promote in two years!

Stats so far

iS7oLkQ.png

Happy with the growth of attendence! and seaosn tickets :)

 

New HOYD

Our former HoYD got poached so I had to find a new one and hired this guy...his stats are worse but.....Fairly Proffesional personality! Still Media-Freindly so lets see if this will get me better youngsters!What you guys think? I could also hire a German or Belgian dude...but i'm unsure as they do not have Netherlands knowladge. Will that affect my youth intake or does it have no effect?

Youth Intake

Predicted Youth intake

Actual:

I1gzWLN.png

 

Much less diverse than las two seasons sadly. Also not that GOLDEN as I had hoped. No direct first team players. I didn't sign VAN DER SLOOT, I sign the rest. We can see more "Fairly Proffesionals"...so that is nice!

So the TOP 3 INHM:

UwouMsu.png

Hopefully a family member of the famous Drenthe! Has already amazing Tackling, Teamwork and Determination!. Decent speed. Sadly not that tall. Still this might be our futuce CB next to KRUIPER.

 

KaRwlGJ.png

KUYVENHOVEN, amesome name! Great teamwork and work rate so lets hope he will imporve fast as he's pretty bad overal.

vbmQV1J.png

Tommie has great pace, but really needs to work on finishing if he wants to get to first team. Overal high potential but needs alot of work too.

Ungmennafélag Njarðvíkur - Season 2025 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

A rather strange season, this. I didn't think we did very well, but somehow we finished in 3rd, only a point behind 2nd. But when I compare it to last season, we only had 4 points more. Usually, this points total would not be enough to finish in the European spots, but for whatever reason it was fine now. I'm happy with it, but I still think we need to improve going forward. One problem though is that quite a few players are not willing to sign new contracts, so I might lose some before next season. Viðar Már Arinbjörnsson 22c is among them, and he has already signed a contract with Norwegian side Kristiansund.

In the Deildabikar we won our group, but lost to Valur in the semi final.

In the Bikarkeppni we beat Þróttur, Fylkir, Stjarnan, and Akraness to reach the final. There we beat HK on pens to claim our first cup win.

Youth

Back to a golden generation, but less positive lines than normal.

V3kike7.png

A very good intake this season with loads of potential.

Yes, yet another striker is the best. Now we are getting quite saturated with strikers...

Yes. I definitely see it that way. It really seemed that way with my previous Youth save, where I was lucky that the dip happened in the final few intakes, and I still had an actual golden generation to take me to challenge achievement.

To be fair, I did think that I was getting a really good run of intakes in this save from about 10 to 5 intakes ago. I was worried it wouldn't last, and it didn't.

Even with much better Youth facilities and recruitment, my last few intakes are objectively worse, and maybe my improved training facilities, slightly better coaches and playing at a higher level, are blurring their worse standard.

It's not going to cause me to be relegated, but I'm in the Championship, and even if I get a player every year with the potential to take us to the top, it's going to be a long slog.

Vikeologist's 2047/48 Folkestone Season Report

See the source image

20210514101525_1.thumb.jpg.2a19c0c8ee36d7872a78cd0669167cba.jpg

We started really badly, 6 points in the first 10 matches, and I was worried that a continuation of our terrible second half from last season was going to lead to relegation, but by managing the matches myself, rather than Instant Resulting, I steadied the ship. We were never anywhere near the playoffs, but we also didn’t look like being relegated after 15 matches or so.

So a bit of a boring season. Being safe meant that I could give opportunities to my promising young players near the end of the season. Unfortunately as I have bemoaned more than once recently, I don’t have much in the way of promising young players, and the ones I do have are in the same positions as my even more promising and slightly older young players.

I’ve done a screenshot of players by PA rather than CA, and you may note that they’re mostly wingers. In fact both my starting strikers are repositioned wingers.

20210514102447_1.thumb.jpg.ca1ef0965adcb4d1b6956f54cadc7a7c.jpg20210514103957_1.thumb.jpg.bc4e5a33a7c43ab3cfbdd066bd499d74.jpg

Top Goalscorer – Dave Jackson 21b – 23

Ten less goals than last season, and he only scored once in the last ten or so matches of the season, but I don’t really have any concerns about him.

Well, actually, I do have one. Dave has hit 22and it turns out he doesn’t like Big Matches. It’s going to happen occasionally, despite my quarantining all my non big match players in a separate mentoring group.

However, I do want to see if I can change this, so I’ve put Dave into a group with my 2 most influential players who do like big matches to see if it’s not too late to turn this around. It’s only been a few months.

Is 22 too late to turn this around?

Anyway, I do have another good striker to play alongside him. 17 year old Liam Carter 25d scored 20 goals. If either of them miss a match though, I have a problem.

 

 

Highest Average Rating (minimum 10 matches played) – Steven 'Shamrock' Larkin 21d – 7.26

My mercenary goalie. Incidentally, there doesn’t seem to be any way of changing his personality. He has 3 years left on his huge contract, and a release clause that’s too low, but not terrible. His demands for a new contract are wayyyyyyy more than I can give him, so I suppose he is gong to leave at some point unless we win promotion the next couple of seasons, but it won’t be the absolute end of the world. He’s very good, but not irreplaceable.

Man of The Match – Steven 'Shamrock' Larkin 21d - 7

 

Most Valuable Player– Steven 'Shamrock' Larkin 21d

The first season that I’ve awarded this to him, and as per above it might be his last since there’s a good chance he’ll leave.

He did let in 80 goals this season, but maybe that’s not entirely a Shamrock problem.

 

Most Appearances (Regens) – Jason ‘Nepotism’ Ramsay 1a – 719

Jason has now retired, having failed to secure another managerial post. Gutting.

Nobody from my current squad looks likely to surpass him Michael Morgan, my veteran striker is on 569, but is almost 34 now, and mostly not playing.

The most appearances by a current player still starting every match is 387 by 26 year old Neil Norris.

I don’t think this record will ever be broken.

 

 

Most Goals (Regens) – Michael Morgan 9a 463

I said last year, I keep publishing the obituary on his career, and he keeps refusing to bow out gracefully.

Honestly, I think he’s still my 3rd best striker, because the ones below him don’t actually score goals. The thing is though that I need to try to develop somebody with the potential to surpass him. That said, he will probably be a substitute at the start of next season, because I can’t afford to keep giving chances to strikers posting eggs, if that’s the right idiom. Seriously, the 2 strikers competing for the number 3 spot both failed to score a single goal this season in a combined 1,000 minutes or so of action.

However, it is just possible that this record might be broken. One of my starting strikers, Liam Carter 25d, is 17 years old. As I say above, he only scored 20 goals this season, but he only started 39, and of course he is likely to improve. Maybe a lot. And apart from Morgan, he really has zero competition for his place for the immediate future. I really hope I do get a good striker in an intake soon, but for the moment the coast is clear.

With our first new Head of Youth Development change in over 20 seasons, getting this kind of youth intake preview made me somewhat excited. Lets hope that our Perfectionist Head of Youth Development can live up to the standards.

End of Season Review

Season 2027/28

Unió Esportiva Extremenya

UE Extremenya - Wikipedia

Season Summary

Another year and another runners up in the league.  An early loss in the cup meant another season without any silverware.

Season Details

Europa Conference League - A heavy aggregate defeat by Scottish side Aberdeen saw the club knocked out at the second qualifying round for the fourth season running.

League Table - U. E. Santa Colomo were just too strong and churned out win after win.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - We were much more consistent though we were still some way back in second place.

Copa Constitució - A shock defeat to Sant Julià eliminated the club at the quarter final stage.

Pre Season Friendlies - Another quality pre season campaign with just the one defeat.

Squad - Another good intake has enabled the depth to get even better, though we do lack some good centre backs.

Squad Dynamics - As good as it always is.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - Just the two departures, as two youngsters left on loan to gain some experience.

Youth Candidates - Another exceptional intake with Spanish central midfielder Juan Montaner YP28A49 looking like a fine prospect.

Finances - We are in the black though only just as we are losing a lot of money every year due to the high costs of the youth academy.

Key Players

Julio César Villalonga YP27I41 - The striker was not as prolific as last season.

Tiago Mendes YP27A33 - The best player at the club, the seventeen year old is now a full Andorran international.

Hugo Freitas YP27J42 - The goalkeeper performed above his level numerous times.

Mirko Giudici YP27K43 - One of the best defenders at the club.

Rúben Salgueiro YP27H40 - A fine season from the midfielder.

Next Season

A title challenge.

I had the same message before takeover. I thought I got the better chairman, then he put all the money to two transfers... :idiot:

I haven't continued the game after that, need a small break.

Yeah it just happened but I didn't get sacked. He did offer for 2 players though, same as you. However, i went to their profiles and under "contract" i could immediately withdraw the contract offer. Then I spent the £6million he put in the club on training facilities.

Ungmennafélag Njarðvíkur - Season 2026 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

We keep on losing our best players, but we also keep qualifying for Europe, so that will help out a lot. Towards the end of the season we got the best news ever in that we are going professional again before next season! Keflavík and Valur proved too good for us this time, but I hope to challenge them next time around.

Before the season started we played in the Meistarakeppni karla, a sort of Community Shield and we beat Breiðablik on pens.

In the Deildabikar we were unbeaten, but still finished 2nd got knocked out

In the Bikarkeppni we lost to Þór in the 3rd round.

In the Europa Conference League we beat Gorica of Croatia, Olimpija Ljubljana of Slovenia, and Botev Plovdiv of Bulgaria to reach the group stage. There we have drawn AIK of Sweden, Vitória de Guimarães of Portugal, and FC København of Denmark. So far we've beaten AIK and lost to Vitória de Guimarães once and FC København twice. We have a very unlikely chance of going through, but most likely we are getting knocked out. I'll update how things happened in the next season review.

Youth

A very good preview.

Some very good personalities, and some potential in addition.

A promising goalkeeper this time.

Campeonato de Portugal

JmXStNt.png

With our best player for the last 2 season leaving, I was actually somewhat worried about this season. But those worries proved to be unfounded, as we actually set a new points record so far in the save.

 

Taça de Portugal

3Uy2Su4.png

Lost in the local derby to Fafe, they are a tier above so it was somewhat expected

 

Best Players

1: Gustavo Gomes

VsWR9dg.jpg

Gustavo Gomes took over from Paulo Freitas and he performed greatly.

 

2: Nuno Ferreira

N9GOmxj.jpg

Nuno Ferreira has been on the squad since the beginning and has been one of the most consistent performers so far

 

3: Miguel Paralvas

2NfIjTI.jpg

A youth player that was actually not highlighted when he came along, he has since become probably our best offensive player.

Final thoughts:

Not a bad season, but we might have a little bit of an issue right now. Both of our best players by Current Ability, Nuno Vieira and Armando Araújo do not want a new contract. Nuno Vieira's contract ends next season, Araújo's ends in 2026. I might need to sell Vieira on and sell Araújo next season, but that will suck

Aachen FC Season 5 Review

I managed to finish a respectable 9th place in the league with me only being 10 points away from the play offs. I am aiming to get a higher position and close the gap next season.

Season Review 2025/26

 

First things first - we won the FA Trophy! Great team effort, got through twice via penalties.Hopefully a sign of better things to come.

Screen-Shot-2021-05-14-11-12-58.58.png

Screen-Shot-2021-05-14-11-15-36.44.png

In the league i tried to experiment and "teach" new tactics to the squad. We now can play (beside our trusted 4-3-3) a flat 4-4-2 and a wingerless 4-1-3-2. I hope this flexibility will pay off next year. Even despite all those experiments we managed a nice 13th place. Since some young players are developing nicely (and we often lost while having an higher xp-rating) i have hopes that next season we will have a shot at the promotion-playoff-places.

The finances took a hard hit because we upgraded our youth training facilities. 750.000 Euro, all the club had as savings i hope this will pay off. Youth level has been increased as well.

 

Screen-Shot-2021-05-14-22-31-51.27.png

Key players:

Jake O'Reilly 23A - 6.91

As envisioned he became our new star-striker during this season. As feared he wants to leave, i hope i can hold onto him for at least one more season

Spoiler

Screen-Shot-2021-05-06-19-20-11.03.png

Dan Lavercombe 7.01

As always a reliant keeper with the ocasional great game.

Spoiler

Screen-Shot-2021-05-14-22-34-29.87.png

 

Valdemar Kapoco 22o - 7.00

Has become our best central defender during thisi season. Not great, defense is still our weakest area, but at least he's decent and doesnt make too many mistakes.

Aachen Season 3 Youth Intake

81c02e4280c478ae8ae2b109b44eb102.png

Another intake without a good striker. Is there anyway of rectifying this ?

 

 

 

Maybe look for Playing style, tactical style and Preferred formations of your HOYT?

SVV Scheveningen - Season 5  year 28/29

yMdSGcR.png

Competitions:

nrc8kmb.png

Well that was a great succes and very unexpected. PROMOTION! and CHAMPIONSHIP! :D

W6p0voW.png

9KGw0jW.png

Yup with only 68 points! Lowest in histroy of  KKD to win the title! And only 3 points more than last year!

Players stats / Transfers

Great season, but i'm worried, we won but we are not ready for Eredivisie. Our clash against Feyenoord in 2nd round of the cup has shown that, we lost 0-5 in Rotterdam. We will most likley go down right away. In pain. I would have liked another seaosn to prepere, to have more players worthy of playing in Eredivise....we are going in with only 4 or 5 players who can handle  that level. Thats not good. Anyways, this years heroes. A-KUM again our topscorer, this year with 24 league goals and ave. rating of 7,28. He won  TopScorer  second year in a row and  best league player. Next year he will be able to show his talent on highest level and I fear he will fail or we really need to  play very counter football. Other hero is VAN SON, our GK regen who took the first team spot  from SVV Legend VAN DER MAATEN and kept it (mostly due to decline of the  grizzeld goaly). KRUIPER has become our best defender and had a great season. Begin of the year he wanted to move to a bigger club but thankfully after SIEMENS-BREGA talked to him, he wants to stay.  Hopefully Eredivisie will  give him motivation to stay. And also I'd like to mention Papito ROSINA who was  a great super-sub but is not performing as well when starting. He has improved  greatly and made alot of  minutes this year. Further new regen aditions to first team are: Charlton ROSINA who has become  backup LB behind WINTER. Dane KNUDSEN who is now my rotation midfielder...and with time  might surpass  SIEMENS-BREGA. And Bosian FLEUREN who stared the season at same  level as KNUDSEN but has by now fallen behind. Still has potential to grow so we will see.

Stats so far:

JEQl14M.png

Youth Intake:

Predicted Youth intake

lvTz8va.png

What a bad intake. Worst so far. I fear I have made a mistake signing that HOYD with subpar stats. If next year intake is bad again im gonna sign a new HOYD.

Two youngsters with biggest potential:

 

xTS7PDc.png

Another striker, we have like 8 of them in youth already.  :(  Horrible finishing but great pace.

 

OT1VZtM.png

And ofcourse another striker. Decent finishing so he might grow into  first team  player.  Do not like his work rate though.

 

Youth intake stats: 

 

G8Um6dy.png

QTcAny3.png

New second nationality players from Aruba! Also For first time players bron in Nigeria, Turkey and Sweden. The turkey guy is anoyying, he needs to get dutch nationality or I will have to pay him  18k per month, something I cannot afford.

 

In next short update I will show how 3 players have improved in  past few seasons.

So few small questions about HOYD. Will hireing a foreign HOYD without knowlege of Netherlands negatively impact my intake? Or does it not have any impact?

and second small question. I do not have any code of conduct set...and now after 5 seaosns I would have hoped I would be able to add it somehow...anyone know how I can add it?
