End of Season Review

Season 2025/26

East Kilbride

East Kilbride F.C. - Wikipedia

Season Summary

A very tough season where we were always in relegation danger.  A huge win on the last day of the season secured survival.

Season Details

League Table - The league was so hard and we finished seventh, surviving on the final day.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - We lost quite a lot of games as we struggled in the higher league.

Scottish Cup - We made it through to the fourth round before being outclassed at top flight Hearts.

Betfred Cup - We once again finished third in our group and once again were eliminated at this stage.

SPFL Trust Trophy - We lost at home to fellow third tier side Ayr United in the second round, ending our interest in the competition.

Pre Season Friendlies - A draw at home to Championship club Motherwell was the highlight of an otherwise routine pre season.

Squad - The players are improving.  Slowly.

Squad Dynamics - Considering how hard the season was, this is surprisingly good.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - The departures were mostly loans, though there was a club record sale.

Youth Candidates - A decent intake with one potential star.  Midfielder Jim McIntosh YP26A49 looks like he has a lot of potential.

Finances - We are still in the red, though the cup game at Hearts helped somewhat.

Key Players

Andy Semple YP23D4 - The striker had a good season, though his form deserted him in the middle of the season.

Lewis Kidd - Finding the step up tough, the central midfielder did raise his game.

Jordan Hart - He really is worth his weight in gold as our number one goalkeeper.

Graeme Scott YP24B18 - An excellent season for the teenage central defender.

Giacomo Prosperi YP24D20 - Now a full international, the Canadian left back had a shocker this year.

Next Season

A repeat would be lovely.  Preferably not on the last day though for my heart.

CSA Steaua Buceresti

Season 8 – Casa Liga I

Table1 -- Table2 -- Transfers -- Squad

Season Update

We had an imense start to the season, winning 8 and drawing 1 of our opening 10 games. Everything after that was not quite as good, but still very solid season as we were pushing towards the top end of the table in spite a bit of a wobble in the mid-season. Somehow, we could have actually recorded a 1st place in the regular season, but we got comfortably beaten by our rivals for that spot on the last day.

The Champions Playoff saw us play awfully for the most part. I don’t think we’re close to the quality of the other 5 teams here but think the league has a bit of a divide so in the regular season we’ve been able to have better performances from improving morale from beating the lesser teams. There was only one game in the 10 that we looked anywhere near our best, but did manage to scrape enough points to secure 3rd place and secure ourselves European football next season.

Squad

Alin Chivu 4 had a very good season, though towards the end of the year his ratings dropped right off. He managed 28 goals this season which is an improvement on his 20 last season and comfortably wins him top scorer in the league. He’s our highest earner for a reason and whilst he is wanted, it’s only by domestic teams so hopefully I can keep hold of him.        

image.png.a8d73ef594c891c07bbafe70e5c54f64.png

We finally this season started with a full newgen first choice team with Danut Marina 7 getting put in as our first choice keeper. He had a good season for us, though like much of the team didn’t play fantastically towards the back end. 12 clean sheets is our best at this level though for a 16 year old keeper I’m happy with that, and hopefully he can build on it going forward.

Another golden generation preview with players in a few positions teased.

1067864973_Theothertwo.PNG.e269f2c85364757a1b2dc183e526dfd9.PNG

If I had to pick one position that we absolutely needed a good prospect in, it would have been left back so I was very happy with this intake, and the other positions were not awful. The obvious pick of the bunch is Rafael Negru 8, he goes straight into the first team as our best left back, maybe it’s rushing him, but I’m liking the look of him. [edit] Realised as ever I didn't get the full intake on the screenshot due to my excitement for Negru so adding now.

General Overview

The TV revenue was higher this season some £2m which allowed us to persuade the board to upgrade our youth facilities. This summer, I need to have a bit of a clear out of players who aren’t going to make the grade with us, I don’t fancy us to get that much money for them, but with no reserve squad I need to trim the first team squad.

Story So Far

Belgium

Division 1 B (2nd Tier)

2027/28 - season 7

Season Summary

What a season! Promotion! a Cup run! the whole shebang!

League - We started the season as we finished the last, with a winning run. After 12 games we'd won 10 and were sitting top of the table. We had a blip around christmas but managed to keep our nose in front through it. We finished the season with a 6 game winning streak to take the title by quite a margin. We were brilliant, one of those seasons you just want to keep playing cos you know you're gonna get a good result!

28leaguetable.JPG.0c3efd1cc64a93f7bb3bbd38c54e9c54.JPG28champions.JPG.618792675dbbde2cb59ae2a429f19402.JPG

 

Cup - finally, a decent cup run! I can't remember the last one, probably about 4 saves back. The big result was the 7th round game, away at first division Lommell SK. we won 6-0! the quarter final took us way to Division 1 Zulte Waregem, and we played magnificently to win 1-0. The semi-final was against division 1 Genk, who were second, so a real test. we failed it, losing the first leg 4-0 and the second 4-1

Players

Our young team did it with style!

28bestXI.JPG.fe26aed11696c3445f87d46409acd603.JPG

Alessandro Coppinni 24A - Finally! first game of the season was a cup game against lower leauge opposition. I gave Coppinni a chance to impress, and he scored 6! So i decided there and then he'd get the whole season. And he was brilliant, for the first half. Scoring rate of over a goal a game up until christmas when he knackered his ankle and was out for a month. When he came back, he was a different player. For the worse. 3 goals in his final 15 games meant a potentially amazing season only ended up a good season. But still, he's finally made the first team!

Ramadhan Kwizera 25A - What a player! I can't believe he's still only 18. He almost single handedly dragged us up and won us the title. He was immense! Can play up front, AMC or MC, he spent most of the season as a deep lying playmaker again. He ran the show! The only negative is his stupid agent keeps insisting on a release clause, and won't let me take it higher than 1m. If that doesn't change he'll be gone soon and I'll cry.

19 goals and 19 assissts from only 32 games, 90%+ as a deep lying playmaker, is frankly insane stats

Youth

Meh, another so-so preview and intake after our improvement to excellent youth intake.

28youthintake.JPG.089f08700b28cd768312be4157fb31bf.JPG

 

Still, our list of prospects is still pleasing. Lots of potential there

28bestprospects.JPG.e3a22542679d581323e056e03546902a.JPG

At least 4 look ready for first team football. I might have to find loans for them though, our squad is looking pretty full as it is.

 

Finances and Upgrades

Hopefully promotion will solve our financial problems. We started the season 2m in debt and were subject to a takeover. The new owners cleared our debts and gave us 400K! By the end of the season we were 2m in debt again. The main problem is as our facilities get downgraded we can't afford get them back to the same level. So, without making some serious money we'll end up going backwards.

We'll be playing in a much bigger stadium next season. Ours isn't good enough for Division 1 so we have to rent one in Antwerp. Hopefully our gate receipts will rise to cover it and we can start making some money and start heading in the right direction with our facilities.

Morpeth Town FC (England)
Season 12 - 2032/33

spacer.png

Fantastic season. We got promoted to the Championship. We were quite good all year, but finished strongly. We lost 1st place in the last round after we were promoted. Also in the summer break we 
sold Osian Doidge to Nottingham Forest for another £5.1M plus 50% of next transfer fee. This allowed us to continue to improve our training and youth facilities. And we already have good
cover on left back in Jean Christian Adou.

League (Results 1, Results 2, Results 3, Cups, League Chart) - We improved on our solid last season. And with a strong finish to the season we were promoted. Most of the games we would draw in a
a regular season, we managed to turn and get a win. We have a good side for League One, but I think we will struggle in the Championship.
In the FA Cup, we made it to the third round where we lost to Chelsea. In the Carabao Cup we were disappointingly knocked out in the first round by York who finished 20th in League One.

Team (Details) - We have a solid and strong squad at League One level. I am more doubtful whether we can make it in the Championship or not.

Facilities - The money received from the Osian Doidge transfer to Nottingham Forrest meant that we could keep on improving our Training and Youth Facilities. They are now both Adequate.
This will definitely help in the long run.

Finances - Our balance is going for red. But that was expected, and in return we have gotten facility upgrades which are needed to go further up the divisions.

Youth Intake - Brian Hunter looks like a decent striker in the future. Ryan Robertson and Kris Hutton also looks fine.

No Transfers in.

Goal for next season: Survive in the Championship and avoid losing too many vital players.

ACN Siena 1904 – Season 27 – 2047/48 Season Preview

139829887_SerieAPreseasonPreview010747.png.f43f463ce6d7d85fc50900d76163ace5.png1384174341_SerieAPreseasonPreview180847.png.634ebcd99787097eb15e4360d4bd0ae1.png

Another new season and another new challenge. This season the board does not want a top-half finish, but only a mid-table finish (thank goodness) and things have taken a very interesting turn for me. We have an affiliate in Serie A this season after they beat Roma in the promotion playoffs last season. So I have loaned a few players their way to not only give them Serie A experience, but to also try and help them stay up. I'm not expecting them to stay up, but if they get the Serie A experience, they could hopefully develop as players and become Serie A players in the mean time.

1816514482_ClubFinances070847.thumb.png.a608031dc1f096a05b444b1ad03e5ae3.png

So our club finances look pretty secure. Don't think we'll be worrying about that any time soon.

1506198365_SienatoplayJuventusinFinal.png.548527ebe1d7241fe4ddd8cb01a87c14.png

As a result of getting to the Coppa Italia final and losing to Juventus, who completed the league and cup double, we have a chance to try and win the Italian Supercup for the very first time in China. Yes, China. Still though, if we win this, it will be our first "major" piece of silverware and our first since 2031, so hopefully we can win it?

Also, Spain wanted me to become their manager. I said no.

I've also sent Mohamed Harti out on loan in an attempt to get him first-team football which will hopefully help him develop. I think he could be our best centre-back who could be our main defender in the years to come, but with him turning 18 this season, I felt a loan move was a good call for him.

This is Vincenzo Deluigi, our first ever player to be considered a "Leading Serie A" player, and he is now our best player at the club.

Unfortunately, Deluigi no longer considers the club strong enough to play at a level match his ambitions. Thankfully he still has 4 years left on his contract, but this still stings that our 3rd wonderkid believes he has now outgrown us as he becomes considered a Leading Serie A player.

We made the group stages! If I'm honest, I was expecting Mechelen to comfortably beat us, but we kept it close in the first leg, and were super clinical in the second, the two late goals from Mechelen made it look a closer affair, but they didn't really have too many chances prior to their goals.

Considering we predicted bottom of our group and 138th of the 141 teams in total I'm very happy to have finished in 6th with a positive goal difference, miles off the top of the table but we finished the season with just twelve players, at least we have another load of youth players to bring in for next season!

We started off so brightly and after two months I thought there was a chance we could make it into the promotion playoffs but then we won three in fourteen and have to settle with mid-table again. I should remember that our oldest player is only 18 1/2 years old so there's plenty of room for growth. :lol:

Rimini Calcio FC

Season Summary 2023 - 2033

A good season as we managed to repeat our 9th place finish from last year. We flirted with a European spot, but just like last year we really struggled at the end of the season. Luckily we finished the season with a great 4-0 win over Lazio, giving me some confidence going into next season. 

The real highlight of the season is that we unfortunately lose our best player, Simon Kus, to Lazio on a free transfer. He will be replaced by a 17 year old from the academy, David Camara, and even though he is a big talent we will miss Simon. 

We had a decent yough intake, with three good prospects! 

We got a stadium expansion granted at the end of the season and further improvements to our facilities. 

We have tons of great prospects in the U18 and U20. It really is promising, but now the dilemma of this challenge faces us: when to put the 16-17 year olds into the first team? It's so difficult to get good loan deals, so it's important that the biggest talents dont stagnate in the youth teams..

FC Amberg - Wikipedia

FC Amberg - Season 2029/30 (Season 9) Review - Regionalliga Bayern

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

We are up into along the (comparably) big boys next season! It was a much harder and longer season as the division got two extra teams this season compared to last. We were part of the top for the whole season though, but it was a close and hard fought battle against Greuther Fürth II initially, before they faltered towards the end. Türkgücü also were a constant thorn in our side as they always seemed to be one step above us. In the the end though, it was Würzburger Kickers who gave us the hardest competition for the single playoff spot at the top, but we stayed strong and finished as champions. While this normally would mean we got promoted, not so here, only a playoff spot. So we faced Hannover II in a two-legged playoff final to decide who goes up into the 3rd tier. We beat them 2-1 away in the first leg with our main striker Florian Eckstein 24n scoring both goals. In the home leg we won again, this time 4-2 to clinch promotion! Attacking midfielder Simon Roger Kitenge 28d scoring two goals really drove the win home. The key to the promotion this season, I think is a lot to do with the formation change from a 4-4-2 to the 4-2-3-1. It has, quite surprisingly made us very solid at the back, as our goalkeeper Utku Tekin 24f managed an amazing 24 clean sheets throughout the season. I'm looking forward to next season and see how we do at a higher tier.

In the Bayerische Pokal we beat Kahl, Oberweikertshofen, Weiden, and Unterhaching before we lost to 1860 München on pens in the quarter final.

One key thing happened just after the promotion was secured, the board asked if I wanted the club to go professional. Of course, I agreed and we will during the summer! In addition to that, our stadium failed the regulations for the 3rd tier, so the board decided to build a new one and name it after one of the players I had at the team when I took over. Loans a'hoi!

Youth

Quite a nice intake with some talented youngsters.

Elama Taga'i 30b is a German-American Samoan (that's a thing!) defender I think looks very promising.

Safe, and although it looked close we were never in the relegation places the entire season, getting as high as 4th early on. We had wins against some of the big teams like Napoli and Parma, but had expected floggings most of the time (9-0 over both games against Juventus and 9-2 against Atalanta). But the best thing about the Serie A is the steady flow of TV money. We are out of debt, consistently making 2M a month. Of course that means upgrades to  junior coaching, youth recruitment, and both youth and training facilities. Next year we get to make all the money again!

I'm very excited about this intake. 5 players with 5* PA! Their personalities aren't really ideal, but that'll be fined out of them.

One small change to the Best XI, with Rudy Brighenti 4A* breaking into the first team after the youth intake. He won't be with us for long, having refused to sign a new contract because he's too good for us. I don't know how barely scraping into the first team means he's too good, but he is tagged as promising. He'll be playing European football next season as he joins 7th placed Genoa.

Great progress @shaunvamos! Surviving in Serie A as early as the 2027-2028 season is impressive! 

Thanks @thomas_e! I honestly have no idea how we've done it, we have absolutely no business being here. We're so overlooked that when we beat Napoli the headline was that Napoli moved into first place, not the fact that we caused a massive upset :lol:

Odra Wodzisław - 2025/26

Squad - League - Finances - Transfers 

Dissapointed :( For all we archive in this season in one in last matches with Chojniczanka we lost after our sub GK saves the penalty but not enough good to save the second shot which allowed Choniczanka secure 1st spot and we lost title by 2 points and 1 point to get promotion from 2nd place. In playoff we lost in Final vs Piast... we were better but not enough to win really sadly beacouse seson was hard. We managed to survive but after that season Im not happy at all. We played first time in Cup but we lost in first match vs Elana from lower tier. Intake was ok without anything special 3 decent players with option to develope. I was thinking if I didnt changed the team. Seven guys joined from Rybnik but im still in Wodzisław Sląski. We lost some value in training fields and we are not able for now to up them. I archive to get feeder club Polonia Głubczyce. Didn't manage to sell one of the winders the 50k bits are to small from me :(

End of Season Review

Season 2026/27

East Kilbride

East Kilbride F.C. - Wikipedia

Season Summary

An unbelievable campaign where we qualified for the promotion playoffs.  They proved a step too far though even qualifying for them is a vast overachievement.

Season Details

League Table - A third place finish is the highest in the clubs history.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - We started well enough but then lost five in a row, sending us tumbling down the table.  We recovered in style though.

Promotion Playoffs - Cove Rangers proved too good over two legs to knock us out at the semi final stage.

Scottish Cup - Championship outfit Raith Rovers beat us in a replay in the fourth round after we held them at home.

Betfred Cup - We are back to finishing bottom of our group as we continue to struggle in this competition.

SPFL Trust Trophy - Once again we lost in the second round, losing at home to a strong Celtic Reserves side.

Pre Season Friendlies - Just the three games this year and with two wins and a narrow loss to English giants Leeds United, it was a good pre season campaign.

Squad - The players are continuing to develop and the we are starting to have some depth in quite a few positions.

Squad Dynamics - Exceptional, which you would expect.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - Very little activity as only one player departed permanently.

Youth Candidates - A good group this year though no overall star.  Northern Irishman Aaron Megaw YP27B66 looks like a fine player, both overall and for his versatility.

Finances - We continue to be in the red though we seem to have stemmed the losses.

Key Players

Andy Semple YP23D4 - Our best player had a much better campaign this year and this largely contributed to why we had such a good season.

Jordan Hart - Our goalkeeper continues to be our number one and continues to perform well enough.

Graeme Scott YP24B18 - The central defender was a rock at the back.

Giacomo Prosperi YP24D20 - The Canadian international left back was better than last season, though he is still capable of so much more.

Jim McIntosh YP26A49 - Regarded as one of the best players at the club, the midfielder under performed, largely because he is sulking over a blocked transfer.

Next Season

Despite the successes of this year, I don't think we are strong enough to survive in the league above.  So a comfortable mid table position will be just fine.

Hello all. I am going to post my end-of-season-review, summary of tactical continuation and plan for next season. This will be shorter though!!! I am introducing five youth players into the Senior squad in the upcoming season and as such, it will take two or three season to see results. I need to bust through what will be a couple of difficult transitional seasons before any attempt at a CL victory can be made. More playing, less posting!

Aigaleo Season 19: 2039/40 Review.

As suspected, after losing my top player Meletiou to Manchester City and losing my next best player Vafidis for pretty much the entire season through injury, we struggled to perform against the top teams and our title charge never really sustained any momentum. However, seeing the futility of pushing for the league or progressing in the Champions League I focused all our energies on the Domestic Cup which we won for the first time!!20210913154707_1.jpg.d86cc07529e21f5517f35af87d850985.jpg

2nd place in the league, Champions Cup First Found Knockout and Domestic Cup success. It felt like we were moving backwards, what with the loss of our star players and serious injuries throughout the squad, but upon reflection we have had a superb season.

20210913154738_1.jpg.a725d49e68bab59672980dd589424513.jpg

With new personnel about to enter senior squad and our international/domestic reputation steadily improving, I am going to deploy the 4411 2DM with a few more specialist roles with the intention of improving creativity in what has been a rock solid tactical approach. Enter the Trequarista!:

20210913155052_1.jpg.2d6515383967724b1d8dec68cece0cfa.jpg

Now, I know this guy is lacking in Passing and Dribbling but his Mental attributes are impressive and should compensate for his developing technical attributes. In the first season, I do not expect him to excel against strong teams, but I am hoping for some real fireworks against weaker and similar opposition. Here is the framework I am looking to deploy to make full use of the role:

20210913160149_1.jpg.b0c0688c4ba89788ab5502f7a3168dc6.jpg

Time to play. It might be a couple of seasons before I next post......

Xerez – Season 10 (2030/31)

La Liga 2 What a season! From the start it looked like we were not in danger of relegation, picking up a lot more wins and draws than last season, and (also unlike last season) edging a number of close games. Then we went on a fantastic run in winter, winning 11 in a row to set a best-ever club winning streak and equal the league record for successive wins. Injuries to some key players saw us lose form but even with that, we managed to qualify for playoffs with 4 games to go, albeit 4 defeats in those last 4 games saw us slide from 3rd to 8th, and left us facing 3rd-placed Rayo Vallecano in the playoff semi.

We did well against Vallecano in the league so I wasn’t feeling too pessimistic, and a great 4-0 home win (which we didn’t really deserve, according to xG) set the foundation for a 4-2 aggregate win. In the final we faced Alaves, who we beat twice in the league, so I was starting to dream about promotion, and not dream but expect it after a 2-0 home win in the first leg. But Alaves turned the tie around, thrashing us 5-0 in the away leg and running out deserved winners on the balance of play during the tie, even though the away leg scoreline definitely flattered them.

spacer.png spacer.png

So a strange season but strange in a good way - after almost getting relegated last year, we almost got promoted this year! The quality of the team is way too low for La Liga and even though we could’ve used the money I don’t think I would have enjoyed losing almost every game of a long La Liga season, so I'm not too gutted to miss out.

Players: I think the main reason we did so much better this year is the emergence of Nico Nunez 08a - a more solid defence saw us pick up many more draws and edge a number of tight games which made a lot of difference (though the xPoints table also shows that we were a bit lucky). Other than that, our top-rated player Gregorio Marin 03a went from “inconsistent” to “fairly inconsistent” and finally had a good season, scoring 19 from advanced midfield positions. As usual, another striker came out of the shadows to step in while others underperformed. This year it was Toni Sales 02h, who ended the season with 20 gals and 5 assists in 42 games.

spacer.png spacer.png spacer.png

Youth intake [preview]: Finally, the youth investments seem to be paying off in what looks like our best intake in years. After years without any decent defenders, this intake suddenly sees us overstocked in central defence, with (not Xabi) Alonso 10a close to first team ready already, and a few other CB prospects thrown in for good measure. Now we're suddenly lacking talent up front and on the wings, still almost exclusively relying on players from the first two intakes, so I'm hoping that Ricardo Masero 10c develops well to boost our attacking output.

spacer.png spacer.png spacer.png

Facilities: Youth and training facilities upgraded, another youth upgrade on the way, and youth recruitment maxed out. I’m sticking to good youth coaching for now to avoid us starting to lose money.

Transfers: nothing of note

Domestic: Another excellent season in terms of league performance and another terrible 2nd round exit in the cup.  With 5 games to go we remained unbeaten so I continued to play my top players in an attempt to complete an unbeaten league season.  We managed to pick up back to back defeats though and missed the chance.  Maybe next season...

Season #106 - 2127/28

Another ok season and just missing out on playoffs by 3 points

We are just too inconsistent. Lose a game out of nowhere that we shouldn't lose

Adesope worth £19.5m now but still won't entertain a new contact, 12 months left. Got 46 goals in 43 games. Think we had to get promoted this season to have any hope of keeping him

Will need a make a decision at some point on whether to cash in on him or just let it ride out and see if he can fire me into the Premier League

Arrggh. I can't help myself. Quick post. Awesome pre-season with some difficult opposition and we pull out a top-drawer performance in the first match, with our two debut making youth proteges (Parianos and Antonakopoulos) looking the business. I am going to ignore  for the moment that Panachaiki GE are one of the less challenging teams in the division and relish the excitement I am feeling at the potential this tactic has!

I thought we had no chance of getting out of that group, especially after the defeat to Juventus - we were totally outplayed. At home we destroyed them.

My two TQ's are thriving and we are still performing whilst dealing with injuries. Equal game time, with Antonakopoulos excelling against weaker opposition.

They are being ably supported by a Shadow striker who is punching well above his ability:

Tactic 1: All home games and the majority of away games.

Tactic 2: For use against any big-guns (All CL away games away against top league opponents and Home against top teams).

The group we received was fantastic with quite a few going straight into the first team.

End of Season Review

Season 2022

Íþróttafélagið Hamar

Íþróttafélagið Hamar Hveragerði – www.hamarsport.is

Season Summary

We were excellent all season, until the promotion playoffs as we failed to secure promotion and must remain in the fifth tier for at least another season.

Season Details

League Table - We topped our league by a comfortable nine points.

League Fixtures - We won our first eight games as we dominated the league from start to finish.

Promotion Playoffs - We needed penalties to overcome Skallagrímur after a couple of one all draws.  We prevailed and met ÍH in our final, the winner of which would be promoted.  It proved a step too far as we narrowly lost over the two legs to stay in the fifth tier.

Mjókurbikarinn - We reached the second round before being eliminated at home by Tindastóll, who play in the league above us.

Lengjubikarinn C - By finishing second in our group, we went out at the group stage.

Pre Season Friendlies - We had a long pre season campaign as I got to grips with the club and my players.

Squad - The good youth intake has given the squad some much needed depth.

Squad Dynamics - Everyone loves everyone else.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - Just the one departure as a backup midfielder decided he was better off elsewhere.

Youth Candidates - A cracking intake of players with left winger Hjalti Haraldsson YP22A1 looking particularly good.

Finances - We are in the black, though only just.

Key Players

Þórarinn Ingi Guðbrandsson - Teenage striker who had a superb season.

Stefán Þór Hannesson - A good, solid campaign from our goalkeeeper.

Ísak Leó Guðmundsson - A decent enough year from the versatile midfielder though he is capable of a lot more.

Eysteinn Aron Bridde - Defensive midfielder who was found wanting a lot of the time.

Hjalti Haraldsson YP22A1 - Newly arrived from our academy, the left winger is a marvellous player and I expect big things from him next season.

Next Season

Promotion is a must.

Season #107 - 2128/29

After two decent seasons and just finishing outside the playoffs this was an awful season

Maybe the forced sale of Adesope hit us really hard. We don't have another top striker at the club at the moment

How you guys dealing with transfering YT into first squad? I feel sometimes I cant loan a player or give him minutes so im losing potential money.

I constantly feel like that. The hardest part of this challenge for me is knowing when to promote youth to the first team or when to send them on loan or not

Yeah agree with that

Problem is so many of the loans are to non league sides and don't they develop there!

I tend to promote when I need a player due to injury or suspension unless they look very good from the off

After a poor start I decided to chance things up a bit, we changed from attacking to positive and changed the DLF from attacking to a support role and as a result we managed to go unbeaten for the rest of the season, I'm definitely looking forward to next season if things stay like this!

So....I totally didn't forget to sign the Youth Candidates. Went back to before the final game of the season where I reloaded a couple of times until we got a draw, we did however finish down in 4th this time around. The youth candidates have now been signed.

A decent enough preview, though no "Golden Generation":

I am disappointed with the players.  No immediate starters though a few of four star or higher potential.
