And I picked the player, which impressed my the most.

My keeper, which I went full Donnarumma on.

Season Review 2064/65

Poor season, ending losing in the Play Off Final to Portsmouth 4-1

Poor start, losing 6 of the first 12 games!

Turn it round in middle part of the season, with only 2 losses in 24 games!

In with a shout of finishing 2nd and some absolutely awful results out of nowhere, losing 6 out of the last 10 games!!! SHOCKING!

No green lines on Youth Intake for the 2nd year running. It's a new HOYD as original one from very beginning retired. He has got one more year to sort it otherwise he is sacked!!!!

Salisbury Season 1: 2021 - 2022

League / Comps / IntakeTransfers

Very happy with this for a first season, as we ended up defying expectations and finishing 5th! We started with a decent first eleven but pretty much no depth, luckily we avoided any major injuries and things clicked very early on so we were able to carry the momentum through the season and finish in an excellent position. Unfortunately I think we ran out of steam by the playoffs and we lost in the first leg to Chippenham. 

Our intake seems to have a lot of potential, but these's only really one player who will be around the first team in John Casey, but even he is a way off at the moment. We managed to get the junior coaching and youth recruitment both upgraded at the end of the season.

It will be difficult to match this next season as we can't add any extra quality to the team (obviously), so anything mid to top-half I will deem a success again.

South Shields 2024 Season Review

south_shields_fc_2018_-_.gif?IpTt7uOxpq3

Fixtures 1, 2, 3 - A microcosm of most of our seasons - really good if we only have to play one game per game, when the fixtures stack up....our form dips.

League Table - That said, we almost made the playoffs with a 7th place finish.  Brentford ran away with the league.  Burnley survived and finished 2nd to go up automatically.  You could throw a blanket over 3rd through 6th and any one of them could win the playoffs.  Stoke, Hull and Bristol Rovers go down to League One.  Next season: Leicester, Brighton and Bournemouth drop down from the Premier League while Portsmouth, Barnsley and Southend come up from League One.

Playoffs - 6th place Birmingham won the playoff.  They defeated Swansea in the semifinals and then Reading in the finals.  Reading beat Sunderland in a track meet of a two-legged tie, 9-6.

xG General Performance - above average in pass completion, tackles won, shots on target, and goals per game but below average in shots per game and xG per game.

xG Expected-Actual     xG Attacking Efficiency     xG Defensive Efficiency

FA Cup - One and done as Wolves knocked us out in the 3rd round.

League Cup - A trip to the 3rd round as we got lucky with our draws in the first two rounds before losing to Brighton in the 3rd round.

Transfers - a bunch of small sales

I hope so!

YP34B135 would mean the following:

YP - Youth Player.

34 - They came through in 2034.

B - The coaches rate them the second best prospect that season. C is third, D fourth etc.

135 - The 135th total player to come through since the save began.

I see!! I like it!

@Steveh171well done on staying up - as you say quite an achievement with Adorni your best option up front. Yes if his technicals matched his physical's he'd be a champions league calbre player, what a shame! But well done!!

 

@keeper#1Gambin is a stud from that intake. I really like the look of COnnor Unsworth too just sitting as an anchor man really, where his lack of pace wont get exposed, 2 good prospects there for sure

Kecskeméti 2026/27 Season Review

We started off really poorly results  wise, but we weren't getting beaten by much. We turned our form around after the winter break, and suddenly we were in with a chance at getting into Europe. Our final game was at home against perennial contenders Ferencvaros and only a win would guarantee European qualification provided Mol fehervar did the double and win the cup. We beat them 2-0, and Ferencvaros ended their run of 8 straight league titles. 


Remember when I mentioned that Debrecen were an established team in Hungary?

They're being relegated this season. How times change. But they won the cup, denying us a spot in Europe.

László Szabó 3D*  -  Csaba Berta  -  Richárd Tóth 3J

Both our starting XIs have come along in leaps and bounds this season, and the average age has dropped as well which means there's still plenty of room to grow. I was most impressed with the development of Szabo 3D this year, he was incredible, and deserved his league young player of the year award. But now he thinks he's too good for us, so I need to act fast if I want to either keep him around or make a profit on him. Csaba Berta was the best GK in the league this season by far, but his position might be under threat as the youngsters make a play. Toth 3J was also someone who came from nowhere to be a decent player as well.

Another great intake, with 6'4" CB, a striker that can finish and a 5* PA keeper! I expect big things from this generation.

A few players leave us this season, including our starting winger Gyomber 2D, who left after the board decided 31k was too good to refuse. So they sold him to a team in the division below. He's now in their U19s.

Someone needs to sack this board.

Season 3 - 2023/2024

Slovak First Division - 11th

League | Fixtures part 1 / part 2 | Squad / U19 | Transfers | Facilities | Finances

League / Cup:

Coming from extremely surprising last season where we finished 3rd, I don't even know how we managed it. This season it was poor performance after poor performance and I even tried changing tactics after finding some recent ones on tactics forum, but I guess the ones people use to win world trebles are designed for top teams :D we didn't pull off anything remarkable using them and I have now tried making a new one for the upcoming season, maybe it'll work? We shall see. For the whole season we were hanging around the bottom three positions and many matches where we scored first were lost over the 90 minutes, even to teams we were beating last season. The odds were against us but luckily there was worse team in the league than us and we didn't go into automatic relegation. In the relegation playoffs we were matched with Michalovce, a team that could be compared to ours, maybe a little stronger (this is just 3rd season, youngsters are developing), and having to watch the penalties that decide if we stay or go down was nerve wrecking :D We stayed up in the end, and in Slovak Cup we once again reached Final, once again in match against our local rivals Slovan Bratislava, and again we were demolished :D One day!

EURO Cup II:

The board expected us to reach second qualifying round, which we did easily after beating Armenian team Pyunik. In the second qual we were matched against club from Bosnia and Herzegovina - Sarajevo. They were bigger than us regarding club reputation but we managed to have two goalless draws with them and got lucky in penalties, overcoming my board's expectations! In the third round we were matched against Hungarian club Honvéd, where we again reached penalties, but this time we lost, knocking us out of EURO, and judging from our placement this season in the league, we won't be making our coefficients better anytime soon. The nation's coefficients could rise though as some of the other clubs also did well and overcome my expectations of them :D

Squad:

The young bunch that was here when I took over the team is aging into their prime, and some youngsters from the intakes are already getting appearances for the senior team. It can only get better from here, at least for the upcoming few years. Some old dogs will leave the team after this season to reduce wages, although they weren't making appearances for the team anyway and were mostly 3rd/4th choice players for their position.

Transfers:

No transfers in of course, some loans where teams promised they would field my players and one youngster with low potential (according to my assistant) was sold without fee but with 50% sell on clause.

Finances:

I've mentioned in this thread, finances managing in Slovakia are very hard, at least compared to nations where football is more important, or the countries are richer. Here if I pool in my sponsorship, league and cup spot rewards, it will cover 1 month of wages (in the nation's top league), so now that I am 1.2mil EUR in debt, (with new stadium loan it is 3mil net debt), realistically the only way to get into positive numbers is Champions League or very strong Euro Cup II performance. Champions league is far away for us considering our strength compared to nation's top clubs, and the mediocre EURO Cup clubs are usually stronger than my nation's top clubs, at least on paper. Guess we will keep sinking financially and see where it goes :D The bad thing is, however, that I basically can't request anything that costs money :( No higher facilities, coaching badges or better recruitment for the foreseeable future.

Notable players:

Sullivan Laurent Y23 - the frenchman from last intake, that keeps getting called up for international duty for france, his star rating is growing and he is getting growth mostly in physical attributes for now

Youth intake / preview:

Decent intake but we were not short on any of the positions that the most promising players are proficient in playing on.

3 New Prospects:

Jozef Nemec Y24 | Marian Ivan Y24 | Adam Baran Y24

End of Season Review

Season 2037/38

SV Babberich

SV Babberich - Wikipedia

League Table - An excellent campaign as we defied expectations by finishing fifth.  We were never in the hunt for promotion, however.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - We were better in the first half of the season, though we regularly picked up victories, boosting our league position.

TOTO KNVB Beker - Another poor showing as once again we went out at the first time of asking, in the second preliminary round, losing at fellow third tier side Rijnsburgse Boys.

Pre Season Friendlies - In seven games, we only won two matches, though in fairness all of the games were against bigger clubs.

Squad - We are stronger than last year and it helps somewhat that four of my experienced players all have a fairy professional personality, so they are busy mentoring.

Squad Dynamics - I am running out of good things to say about this. It is all very nice.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - A few departures with three showing for fees together with sell on clauses (there were actually four, but one is showing last year).

Youth Candidates - Another cracking group of players, with Lirian Fetahaj YP38D260 already our first choice left back.

Finances - Now that our academy is nearly as good as it can be, the costs are spiralling, so we are losing quite a lot of money.

Key Players

Olivier van Brakel YP23B18 - The goalkeeper is a real rock for us and a vital part of our team.

Angelo Richard YP27C83 - Centre half who has been our best defender for a number of years now.

Tjeu Voight YP31C147 - The striker is still scoring frequently, this season he netted 26 goals in 35 appearances.

Ashar van Kessel YP32C163 - Playing on the left wing, he is now our best player.

Philipp Bonmann YP32B162 - He forms a lethal partnership with van Kessel by his wing play on the right.

Next Season

I don't feel we are ready to launch a promotion challenge just yet, so a top three finish would be ideal.

It is time I gave Brazil a go.  After unsuccessfully searching for a lower league Brazil file that is accurate, I will go with the SI default leagues.  So will be starting in the third tier after taking over a newly promoted side after a season's holiday.

Vikeologist's 12th Folkestone Intake Report (and 8th Intake Review)

See the source image

At last a central defender, and just in time. The question is, should I trust my staff or the numbers?

20210114091310_1.thumb.jpg.4ac7b38c457ccbbf95ecd9789c6e3669.jpg

20210114100907_1.thumb.jpg.383f2bd72bc00a8e4a945ac11409f323.jpg

Jamie Anthony 12a – The intake report shows him as a left back, but one of my central defenders is retiring at the end of the season, and Jamie is instantly his best replacement just on CA. Apart from anything else, he’s only right footed. I might throw him straight into the first team for the rest of the season.

One big problem though. According to my spreadsheet, he’s rubbish as a central defender. Nathan Bird 12d below is just much better in all central defence roles. Jamie is roughly my 20th best central defender, and I only have 2 good ones.

 

Daniel Pemberton 12b – Yet another goalie. My starter now is 18 years old, so Daniel, and my many other goalies, will probably never get a chance.

20210114101245_1.thumb.jpg.697047f6d4856bdf6331c570cb6323a9.jpg

Andy Overton 12c – Another left back, and my starter isn’t great, so he also might be thrown straight into the first team, even though he might be far from my best option with regard to current ability. Might need to spreadsheet it out.

Nathan Bird 12d – A defensive midfielder which is no use to me, but potentially a central defender. At only 180cm though, it’s not a good option, My tactics make it too easy for the opposition to just boot the ball over the head of short arses. Of course he might get a bit taller, but as he currently seems to be much better as a central defender than the 12a above, I’ll have to give him a go.

YP8 review

2068843046_yp8review.thumb.jpg.bd5082b4cdcc28042e955f4828403902.jpg

Danny Burke 8a – Has established himself as my starting right winger this season. He’s no better than a couple of others, but has more potential. It’s a real weakness in my team, so I hope he can progress a lot more. On my spreadsheet he may be the best who’s natural at that position, but my 15th best winger overall.

Maciej Zachara 8b – For a long time I was training him to be a right winger, but his skillset is much better utilised as a striker. The trouble is I have a lot of good strikers, so when he does play in the first team, it’s as a right winger.

Lee Pollard 8c -One of my many promising goalies who doesn’t get any games. According to my spreadsheet he’s slightly better than the 18 year old that’s my starter now, but Pollard is fairly short. I honestly don’t know whether to start him or release him.

Peter O'Toole 8d – Another right winger, but his personality sucks, so I may as well release him. I hadn’t fully realised it before, but he’s rubbish.

Jack Stacey 8e – He may be my 3rd best central defender, but he’s only made 1 sub appearance. Have I left it too late to give him a chance?

Sam Mirfin 8h – Still around because of his Resolute personality. Not sure it’s actually rubbing off on the rest of the U18 squad though.

ACN Siena 1904 - 2027/28 Season Preview

1914995719_FinalLeagueTable.png.48e39401046542d0567823dbe493d16a.png

This season was a massive step backwards and we lost 14 of our last 17 matches in the league, including 9 defeats in a row, a club record, which saw us miss out on getting into the promotion playoffs and allowed ourselves to be dragged towards the relegation playoffs fight. It's made more disappointing by the fact that we lost to Matelica and Follonica Gavorrano during this run of games, two clubs who got relegated at the end of the season. We only managed to drop points to all of the bottom five teams with Vis Pesaro being the only team we took six points against this season from the bottom five teams.

It was a season that we managed to feel like we had gone backwards at the end of the day and after two good seasons of fighting to get into the promotion playoffs, we found ourselves being disappointing and needing to look after our finances which are being drained quicker than I was expecting after we improved the junior coaching and youth recruitment, something I honestly regret doing now, seeing how much it increased the costs to maintain them.

Talking about facilities, our youth facilities are no longer as good as they used to be and it leaves me feeling concerned about the future going forward for finances and making sure that our club can progress. The board wants us to finish in the Lega Pro Girone B playoffs by the 2031/32 season, which given that it's four seasons into the future is both exciting and daunting, given our lack of progress. I feel that the new three seasons could make or break the club's ambitions going forward.

Season Review 2065/66

So after the awful January where we failed to win a game, we managed to turn the form around, winning 13 of the last 16 games, with one loss

Wining The Championship with 100 points and 135 goals!

Jamie Bateson with 61 goals in 49 games. What a player! Breaking a club record

Youth Intake poor again (at least got two lines of green this time!!!!!!!!!!) HOYD SACKED!!!

Vikeologist's 2032/33 Folkestone Season Report 

See the source image

Once again, the season after reaching the playoffs is disappointing.

20210114173242_1.thumb.jpg.a38d5b5ab40e15695c495d2cee869032.jpg

We finished 8 points outside the playoffs, but actually we only picked up 3 less points than last season. We finished the season quite well.

It was a transition season. I had to bring in a new goalie, my legacy goalie being indisputably past it, and went all the way down to the intake before last for his replacement. He developed well, but poor at the start of the season to ok by the end.

I started a new central midfielder from the last intake, and my star striker is only 17 despite this being his second full season.

Hopefully these and other youngsters coming in, including from the very latest intake) will pay dividends next season. The new goalie and midfielder did improve a lot.

It has to be said, after 12 seasons, the attraction of this division has definitely worn off, but bit by bit we’re making progress.

My last legacy player, Finn O’Mara seems intent on retiring at the end of the season. He’s only 34, and by far my best right back, although I’ve had to use him as a central defender for the last couple of seasons. 636 appearances, nearly all of them for me. I’m hoping he doesn’t actually retire.

20210114172135_1.thumb.jpg.f6d257f64986bcbc0d5d1ff20a943447.jpg20210114173408_1.thumb.jpg.6a45aa063d77e362531469f97f293ccb.jpg

Top Goalscorer – Ellis Andrews 2c – 29

The lesser Ellis again. It almost certainly would have been Ellis Drake, but he was injured a lot.

Not for the first time, despite being top scorer, Andrews’ place is in danger. He’s fought off his competition before. We’ll see if he can do it again. I have quite a few strikers who are supposed to be better than him, and his 29 tally was quite disappointing.

Highest Average Rating (minimum 10 matches played) – Ellis Andrews 2c  = 7.17

Another award won with a much poorer stat.

 

Man of The Match – Ellis Andrews 2c – 10

Ditto.

Most Valuable Player– Ellis Drake 10a

Ellis Andrews’ statistics were enough of a regression to be able to place this label where it belongs. Missed about a quarter of the season with injuries, but is by far my best player. His contract has a year left, and currently he has no intention of reupping, but I just have to hope.

Most Appearances (Regens) – Jason Ramsay 1a – 550

My nephew keeps up his half ton average for the season, but the harsh reality is that he’s not actually that great. Frankly he brings shame to the family name. If a replacement suggests itself, he’ll be dropped, and I did drop him for the last 3 matches of the season to give someone younger some matches. At the moment he’s only in the team for the sake of this record.

Most Goals (Regens) – Ellis Andrews 2c  - 215

Season	Division		Position	Notes							MVP										
21/22	VNL South		18th		Steered clear of relegaton thanks to good start.	Callum Davies

It is just as well I use wingers really.  A real shame they are not central midfielders as I am desperately short of them.  I have loads of wingers!

Youth Intake 2024

 

Wow! My new HOYD's first intake and he really delivered! Our first intake was horrible, last year was good, but this is a true golden generation! We are struggling in the league, but this was a huge energy injection. 

The only negative with the intake is that the players with the best current attributes don't have great personalities. 

Except for the goalkeeper, I will put them all in the U18 for the time being as they are still mostly 15, but some will definitely play a part in the first team very soon!

Assuming you mean England, start a game as normal using a fake manager.  Start unemployed and go on holiday until 19 June 2021.  Save the game.  Now holiday until 25 June 2021.  Check what clubs are newly promoted into tier 6.  If you don’t fancy any of them, reload from 19 June 2021 and holiday again to 25 June 2021.  Rinse and repeat until you get a club you like and then retire your fake manager and add a new manager, namely you and take over the club you want to manage.

Yes, but I don't really understand lol. I did that and chose a team but half my players are greyed out. Is this usual? Team is Downton in WESSEX LEAGUE DIVISION ONE. Which I think is Tier 10..? I may have gone overboard with T10? lol

SEASON 24-25 - VANARAMA LEAGUE NORTH

Did you miss me? Well, I didn't miss this season. As mentioned in my last update, I fully expected to be just "surviving" this season and that is exactly what we did:

20645172_VanaramaNationalLeagueNorth_PastPositions.thumb.png.a6823f7c06ca742df20bc408a5bfa743.png

A mid-table season with in the beginning some hope for an upset but as I started to loose some key players (including best player Griffiths) the wheels started to roll off slowly. At the end of the season I started to play almost exclusively youngsters and we started to pick up some steam again. Let's hope we can carry that steam into the next season. Still an 11th finish isn't too bad I guess:

187281018_VanaramaNationalLeagueNorth_Stages.thumb.png.eb99de92d5e86ba6b211d4c2a47dd568.png

Cups

Cup runs weren't deep this season with a  4th qual in FA Cup  and FA Trophy 2nd round where we had a replay at Gateshead only to lose the game home.

Youth Development

No much on upgrades but we did get some decent players in and one very nice attacker who went into the 1st team immediately. Next season though he will have to fight a bit more for his spot. Rowberry was in great shape this season and will remain my first Adv FWD and Brown is a solid tall TM.

1376090944_ConnorCunningham_Profile.thumb.png.51e729131c348cf92dced4be6783ff58.png 

and my main striker Rowberry:

77984422_JakeRowberry_Profile.thumb.png.0410c261e10cdc9037c81a54acf365d5.png

Yup 41 goals in 39 games, if he can build on that next season he might become all-time high scorer of Vanarama National League North? If we can then also shore up the defence life might be good :) 

Future plans

It's time for our youth to shine! But also better contract management is needed so we don't loose our best players for free with any clause...

Ok, the general idea is that you take a previously unplayable team to glory.

So whatever league or country you play in. Start the game and holiday until the table is reset. then take over a newly promoted team to the lowest division possible.

And yes, it's more than possible to take over a team almost without players, then you just have to hold on until you get a youth intake! Remember, no signings, no loans, no free transfers, no nothing except youth intakes! It's hard, but it's meant to be! :D

Ligue 2 (1st) - Coupe de France (Qtr Final)

Squad - U19 - Out on loan - Transfers

 

Continued our good form of the second half of the season last year. We did however change formations for the first time after four seasons, it seemed better to use a 4231 with the players at our disposal. That way, of the five polyvalent guys in front (Bonin, Leblanc, Bokungu, BekhechiBarbier), 4 could always play. Calvet is getting older by the year and was moved one row back, he and Bijimine formed a rock solid duo. After twelve games were still unbeaten (screen), how unexpected. Our strong performance in the first three months also reflected on an individual level: each time, one of our players was chosen as POTM, each time a different player who was a month above them. First Bekhechi, then Leblanc and finally Bonin. Le Havre was the first team to inflict a defeat on us on the thirteenth day of play. This did not knock us out of our stride, no, the train raced on. Almost every game I thought, okay, now we'll face our limits. Yet week after week we continued to perform. Until you suddenly find yourself in the top 2 for several months, and thus entitled to promotion to the Ligue 1. What a team effort!

In the very, very last game of the season, we took over the first spot in the Ligue 2. We won on the field of AJ Auxerre despite 3 suspended starting players, while Grenoble dropped points. We we already certain of promotion a few weeks, but winning the championship is even more beautiful. It was however painful for Grenoble, who were number 1 for months but it ain't over till the fat lady sings! This way Sedan Ardennes is back in the Ligue 1 for the first time since 2006/07, 20 years later...

Reached far in the Coupe de France this season, without actually facing any notable opponents until the quarterfinals against P$G. First time ever we were allowed to play against a top team in France, we put up more than a good fight and lost 0-3. In hindsight, this was a good preparation for next season where we're going to have a tough time, I'm afraid.


Let down of the season is Diabaté, the star player from last year's intake. He had some appearances coming off the bench and even scored once. After that he got his chance in the starting XI, but got injured for one month. After recovering, he immediately injured himselve for another 4 months. Really frustrating as he was a real addition to our squad, and our staf doesn't seem to consider him as talented anymore as he used to be after a year of misery. I hope things get better for him next season.

 

Youth intake

 

Spoiler

Our youth system had some improvements yet again: recruitment to exceptional, coaching as well & facilities went from average to good. The preview promised us a talented Burkinabé winger, and I cant say I'm dissapointed..

Traoré is a potential star for this club, that's clear. Apart from his personality this guy has it all. The Romanian Munteanu is also one to watch, good personality and pacey option. I consider him to be an option upfront, if he can improve his finishing. El Amrani has the ability to become our back-up left back after the almighty Coskun. ook het potentieel om onze back-up linksback te worden.

Poached players from our academy have been revealed: Hajji (OH Leuven) en Lecomte (Troyes). Really sucks that Hajji was stolen from us, I'd loved having him here. He would have been our star CB in no time, what a shame. 

 

Next season

Survival, pls. :D Really don't know whether we will be good enough

SEASON 25-26 - VANARAMA LEAGUE NORTH

Media prediction gave us 19th position. I said to the team we could reach mid-table. They were furious at me being over-ambitious. I decided to prove them all wrong:

215638252_FCUnitedvLeamington_Presentation.thumb.png.27083cf030cce7fea88d6b27e061c015.png

Yes, champions! With 2 games in hand. Mostly because of this guy:

2109049001_JakeRowberry_Profile.thumb.png.0b0dbd85165accc7bf2825c225d08b98.png

48 Goals, an ALL TIME HIGH for the Vanarama National League North.  We started magnificently and never looked back:

1786456013_VanaramaNationalLeagueNorth_PastPositions.thumb.png.78c55e4a6c6da347ae98fbe3eb4911a6.png

I hope we are able to stay up next season but given that we were able to keep our team together despite teams pulling @ Rowberry's arm and my best defender Shaughenessey:

1361372204_MikeyShaughnessy_Profile.thumb.png.8700c2b99c164d0dfbe453a0ca113493.png

Cups

Cups were not the focus this season as we are financially sound (+1 Million) and after clearing almost all senior players I started the career with and only signing the best youth prospects we were down to 30 something players. A 4th qual round again in the FA Cup and our first FA trophy game was immediately lost to Accrington. Although that was 2nd round, board was dissapointed we didn't achieved what they have in their vision (1st round). Guess a minor bug.

Youth Development

Youth recruitment & junior coaching saw a bump and are both at excellent now. Still, youth intake quality is dropping which makes sense because our 1st team players are improving steadily. Which is confirmed as Shaughnessy didn't want to sign a contract at the beginning of the season because our team was too weak but did sign a new contract with 1 month playing to go. 

Future plans

Survive in VNL and maybe, just maybe, if the team is gelled and it works like @XaW said, we might be able to push right through to League 2...

 

PS: Cunningham couldn't handle the pressure of 1st team football, what to do? Here is his current profile:

1643531877_ConnorCunningham_Profile.thumb.png.626596075867bcffed6c9eecee79bd10.png

 

PS2: Surely this is a bug, has any-one seen anything like this? Haven't searched the bug forum yet to see if it's already mentioned:

South Shields Summer 2034 Update

Above My Head Sale

The board decided to sell Ade Akuneto 31A against my wishes.....I'm not happy with the sale.  We could have gotten a lot more.

Just terrible decision by the board.

Player Poached

Newcastle came in and poached one of my academy players too.

Syria have to go down as the surprise team from the group stage going 1-0-1 to qualify for the knockout rounds.  Disappointments of the groups are Jamaica and Ivory Coast.

Ireland go on a dream run to the semifinals where they lose to France.  Denmark's 6-2 victory over Holland goes down as the upset for the games from the Round of 16 to the Final.

Haaland wasn't even part of Norway's World Cup roster.  Still looks to be a great player at age 34.

This kid has jumped ahead of him as starting center forward.

Well the honeymoon period is well and truly over

Won first two games, then got hammered NINE by Palace

Fined every player two weeks wages! Disgraceful performance

Need another new tactic

Maybe play a bit less offensive against the top teams?

drop the defensive line / mentality and pass into space. Worked wonders for me!

It's season five and we solidified our status in the league once again quite comfortably, but this time we were a few points off the playoffs. Financially we are still struggling and I think one more year is needed before we can begin to reinvest in the facilities. The squad is dire need of the new guard, the old faithful are no longer as trusty as they once were. I will be letting some leave for free in the summer. FULL YOUTH REVOLUTION. Also changed the skin this season.

Teie IF - Youth intake 2028

I like that we are getting defenders, just hope they are quality.

kzzbIRD.png

The defenders seem good, but I had kinda hoped for even better ones! Still not a bad intake though!

Pretty strong in most, but not amazing in much. I rate him though, even if he won't raise the roof.

Statistics:

Spoiler

We got a German fellow, even if he is born locally. And curiously, we got a guy that's born in China and have a Chinese like name, but no Chinese dual citizenship. Is that enough to tick them off my list? It's my list, I do whatever I want, so of course I'll do it! :D My biggest surprise so far is how few people partially from the Middle East and the Balkans (none!) since that is quite common here.
