It's going to be a hard season. Strasbourg is one of the other contenders for relegation...

EDIT:

Coach, what? You want me to play against PSG? Hell no, wait a minute...

Ideal game to miss 4 starting players :D

Mid way point of season 2 - we are hanging in there 4 points clear of the drop after wins against the bottom 2, we are still getting smashed by most teams but manage to get by against some of the teams closest to us. 3 of the year 1 players are now in the first 11 on a weekly basis, not scoring enough goals this season, quite a few draws where we have hung on 25 shots vs 1274719748_Screenshot(17).thumb.png.035bdd691c0f67ae29955c205a78d4b3.png418185365_Screenshot(18).thumb.png.ea0a91a2cbe349404fa38d1aed769ad5.png1070680572_Screenshot(19).thumb.png.1332f11d9b77033eecc4a20cbaefde6c.png271976581_Screenshot(20).thumb.png.8300c3ae522e670f1aa9ef14fb86e7c5.png8706626_Screenshot(21).thumb.png.acb648ee62ffb37ae41bce11552e96c7.png

I played with EA Braganca last year, managed to get them in the Liga NOS before losing interest. 

You have to get to the first intake, those players do qualify! :) So no game breaker.

Yeah, it's tough, but I hope I can survive until then!

Lost my first player... all the teams from 1th and 2th tier are bidding on my free amateur players, i can hold some with new '0' contracts but.. my main gk left :( 

@XaW it is ok that i continue like this  ? relegated team from second tier , not the number last from third tier. I'm using the same database as u (i think their is only one online) and u didn't had Massana going down ?

The one I used only had 2 tiers, and Massana finished last. I can't remember where I got it from, either this forum or somewhere else, but I've added it to this post (this is not my creation, so if the creator want's their name here, PM me, and I'll add it!). I didn't find any with 3 tiers at the time...

Then i'm wrong, i'm using one from Timo with three tiers :) no problem. I lost 6 players (two of three best youth players from the first (holiday) intake) but if i go up , i'll be semi pro again.

Season is flying and i'm enjoying it.

Since they already stole 3 of the first intake, please give me many more :)  . I was able to extend my Recruitment to excellent and coaching to fairly basic during the first season.

Baia 22-7 could make it into the first team as AMC backup. Carrasco 22-1 is a tall DC but not sure if he'll make it.

Merthyr Town FC - Season 2031/32

Table | Squad | Finances | Transfers

Back in Vanarama North again. Not sure how they set who's in which league, but being in south Wales, I would have thought we would mostly be in the southern league. Guess I'm wrong. Solid season, mostly hovering around 8th, but snuck into 7th and a play-off spot on the last day. Met Southport in the play-off quarter final, where they (as usual) completely dominated us, and we had no chance whatsoever, losing 3-0. Our record against Southport is atrocious, losing 15 of 20 matches against them. They also play the dreaded narrow 4-3-3 formation, with quick counter attacks,  something we have no answers to. There was a hope for an FA cup windfall again, drawing league 1 Blackpool in the 1st round, but we couldn't get past Vanarama National side Barnet (who got relegated) in the 4th qualifying round. 

A new look first team performed fairly well. For some reason FM can't tell left from right in central areas, I'm not playing the left footers (McGee 29a/Vaughan 25a) on the right and right footers (Claridge 23b/Orchard 28c) on the left. Jamie Richards 23a had the best average rating, but he was used more sparsely this season. No really clinical goal scorers this season, with Jason Roche 29b ending with 12 goals. Defence was unusually solid, letting in only 40 goals in 46 matches.

Youth preview | Youth intake

Again no central midfielders listed in the preview, but rather more fullbacks and central defenders. I reckon I'll retrain a fullback or two as central midfielders to spread the talents around the pitch a bit. The intake itself looks a lot like before, so can't say if it's good. I replaced my HoYD, but looks like I forgot to put him in charge. Maybe my U18's manager has skills. Tom Burgess 32a rated the most highly by my staff, got some hope for Dylan Cummings 32b and Jack Williams 32c also.

Finances are really solid, after cutting some wages, and having solid attendances. But I can't convince the board to give me better facilities.

AE Africanos Bragança - Youth intake 2022

Any intake will be amazing, but this seems like it could be good.

A very good (and wanted) intake. Some very talented players and most will have a role the rest of the season and next.

A very promising striker. Great at finishing, but not as fast as I usually like.

Everyone born on Cape Verde, and a few have Portuguese nationality as well. Pretty much as expected.

Turns out this didn't happen. The youth players DOES NOT count into this...  I think they are not counted as playing in Portugal since they are from Cape Verde... So i guess this try is dead... A bit guffed now... Let me see if I can find somewhere else to start.

Maybe give it a few more months? 

Would be a shame. I can assure you they did in FM20, while not having the Portuguese nationality...

I holidayed for a couple of months, but still the same. When I look at the Home-Grown status, most of them say that they are "Trained at club (0-21)", but they have a due date for "club (15-21)" that's in a few years time. So that means that I have to wait 2-3 years to play youth players and the same for every intake going forward. And I don't think that's much fun really.

So I guess something changed in Portugal since last year...

Garbarnia Kraków - Profil klubu | Transfermarkt
Garbarnia Kraków - 2029/30

Squad - League - Finances - Transfers

Great season. Our u18 won league again seaon by season. We end the season on 3rd place (we had some bad matches for e.g. we lost with Polonia Warszawa that was relegated and tied second match...). In Playoffs we bet easly Radomiak Radom 3-1 and we played final with Stomil Olsztyn which actually backed to Fortuna 1 Liga after relegation to second league. Match was hard Stomil tied in 88' and we went into penalties where after 2 misses and one saved penalty we won 3-0. This mean that for at last one season we will back to Ekstraklasa! We lost in winter transfermarkt one of our best prospects Koroza 07d again to Wisła Kraków... This time with 30% from next transfer but honestly that was Chairman transfer didn't have anything to do with that. For now Kura 05a is my best young talent after Surma 08a which is still in u18. Stil no luck in Polish Cup where we played Ekstraklasa Lechia Gdańsk (3rd place and Polish Cup winner in the end).

Well, since Portugal didn't work out as intended, I'm having a go in Czechia, or the Czech Republic as the game still calls it. So I'm taking over FK Baník Sokolov. The team is from Sokolov (surprise surprise) in the western part of Czechia a couple of hours drive from the capital Prague, or Praha as the Czechs say.

When I took over, the club had 4 loanees, but all were terminated on my first day.

Not much of a squad, but far more than in Portugal. Let's see how it works out!

Alot going my way this season. Have changed my tactic abit going more offensive. Still doing well in the leauge but most notably had a great run in the FA Cup.

Knocked out 6 teams with league two side Cheltenham the highest rated so I've been lucky with the draws. Knocked out in the 3rd round at Hillsborough and the run gave me around 400K in funds.

The board accepted some youth upgrades and no reason this team wont keep improving. Having hopes for promotion this season.

Started in Portugal after the league change as Freamunde.

 

image.thumb.png.ae731fe2d0f1b286ee364b687013d447.pngThe whole squad was on amateur contracts but I have 1 mil in the bank and 19k on wages so i expect to sign all of the apart from Tshabalala who is wanted and won't  negotiate.

Board expects me to be mid-table so fingers crossed we can achieve that.

Average Training & youth facilities will definitely help along with Adequate academy coaching and recruitment.

Will update you with how it goes.

Just a long slog during the first half of the season.  A lot of frustration.  Nothing seems to be working.  We just give up goals and don't score them.  It's been tough.

1333523165_January12024Table.png.aab638ab495c29806520fab384f62f64.png

Wins over Weymouth and Oxford City have moved us out of the relegation zone.  Next two matches are against Enfield and Chippenham so we have a chance to gain some separation from the bottom four.

882658611_2023YouthIntakePreview.png.cd742d108fac29572ee10e44fb626022.png

More help is on the way for the wings.  For the center of the field....not so much.

1065127951_January12024xGGeneralPerformance.png.589176c2516b84431e678a8805b7f1ea.png

Back to below average for shots per game, goals and expected goals per game.  Big gap between conceded per game and expected conceded.  Maybe will get some luck in the second half of the season to bring that conceded per game number down.

Yeah, I thought about Poland this time, but the Czech league just looked more fun to play. I did get some Poles in the intake this season, so I'm sure I'll be seeing loads of w's and z's here anyway! :p

It seemed a little neater to put everything together, so here it is. We went on a fantastic opening run, winning our first 7 games at a scoring total of 19 for and 2 against. Things then settled down and we managed to ride the wave of our opening form to finish 2nd and another berth in the Europa Conference League. I feel like the breakthrough in the league is coming, we just need to get a little more consistent. I don't know what happened to Larne, they only lost one player, and he was a RB so he can't have been that influential.

 

ce69df51cc98ab32b67e15705ce1712c.png
 

We were excellent in the Conference League this season though, and if it weren't for a stoppage time capitulation we would've made the Group Stages. The highlight was definitely the win against Antalyaspor.

We definitely progressed as a team again, with 3 players now over 70. Boyd had a breakout season, and our CBs were once again solid. Our strikers also shared the load, scoring 16 and 17 goals respectively.

We get a Scot, meaning we only need a Welshman to get the British Isles Bingo. Only 3* prospects this season, but they look pretty decent, it's just up to how they develop in the U18s. Our U18s are freakish, winning their 3rd U18 league in 4 seasons, and their 2nd consecutive invincible season.

We lost Virtue before we even used him properly, but the fact that he went to a team in League One like Plymouth is excellent and speaks volumes for the kind of players we are producing as only a semi-pro side. Larne also poached our reserve keeper, and barely used him.

FK Baník Sokolov - Czechia - Season 2021/22 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

Czech it out, I'm in Czechia! Yeah, expect a fair few puns on Czechia from me now. The squad I inherited was quite decent, with only a few positions with issues. The main one was that I only had 14 players in total. I pulled up my trusted 4-4-2 from Teie and it seems to work quite well here as well, and it was a formation I also had players for, so I'm sticking with it for now. We started the season quite well and established ourselves as a middle top tier side usually sitting just outside the playoff spots. A position I'm more than happy with. After we got the intake where I finally got a talented goalkeeper and finally a full bench(!) things progressed even better and in the end we finished just outside the playoff spots. I'd taken that 4th place if I were offered it before the season, I think I'd even snap the arm of the one who offered it.

We started with a nice bank balance and it allowed me to ask for improvements to the academy coaching and youth recruitment, as well as letting me take a few coaching licenses. I'm currently working on National A.

In the MOL Cup we beat FK Ústí nad Labem and Brezova before losing to top tier team Dynamo České Budějovice in the 3rd round.

Tshabalala as chairman stepped in and accepted £180k and two youngsters Pedro Pedro and Tiago Salgueiro. I believe that the two youngsters could have been regens as they were both 17 when they left. Something happened with their contracts once they were able to go pro but they didnt want to sign anyway

I had Tshabalala leave early on too, quite a shame :(  The 180k is nice though, he left on a free for me after refusing to sign professional terms.

 

The other two I don't recognize so probably regens.

A very promising striker, quick and good finishing should provide goals at this level.

After we got players from around the globe last season, this time all were more or less locals.

Vikeologist's 15th Folkestone Intake Report (and 11th Intake Review)

See the source image

I got a couple of promising left backs / central defenders, which is fortunate.

Here’s the skinny. I had just 2 good central defenders at the start of the season. Some of you may have seen my constant laments at the lack of central defenders.

The best of these 2 central defenders, who’s probably really a left back, was snatched up by a bigger club and the board sold over my head.

Then the other central defender, who is definitely really a left back, decided that he wanted to leave because of the lack of depth in central defence. Not helpful.

Luckily I’ve talked him down off that cliff, but it is definitely the weak spit of my team, especially since central defenders will defend and get themselves suspended. I had a promising central midfielder starting in central defence for a few matches this season.

So here’s my top prospects this intake

Kwesi Nuhu-Accam 15a – He’s quite tall, but the stats suggest he’s a left back rather than a central defender. At the moment, he’s not great at either to be honest.

James Howes 15b – Yet another goalie.

Kurt Morris 15c – The best current ability of the intake, and his stats show a complete tie between his central defence and full back ability, but since Kwesi 15a will be a full back, I ‘m going to train Morris to play in the centre.

 

YP11 Review

Giorgos Kragiopoulos 11a – Coming to the end of his 4th full season as a starter in central midfield. One of my best players, although you wouldn’t know it from his match ratings.

Struan Drever 11b – A goalie. Will probably be my sub keeper from next season, unless a club offers me something for him.

Jenson Couldridge 11c – Interesting player. My backup left winger, but he’s quite slow. If he continues to develop, he might become a starter. One of 2 promising kids in that position.

Ian Dawson YP – A central midfielder. Resolute personality.  Decent player, but lots of others maybe slightly better.

This season was much worse due to losing a number of players who didn't want to sign or the chairman accepted bids for. I really struggled with centre backs as i only have one who is decent in that role. I plan on retraining some CDMs into CBs.361625463_seasontable.thumb.jpg.f16e025db6c2cb1f7942cf2e13c932a1.jpg

Had another youth intake that looks promising though a few of those can immediately come in as back ups.

Pedro Martins still performing really well for me and is my standout player.

Gainsborough Trinity

Season 2033/2034. 6th place League two - FA cup 4th round - John cup - Quarterfinal

Boring Gainsborough - George Graham boys - great teams have many names.

We did it - our effective defensive football gave us another promotion, with just 5 lost matches during season and just letting 28 goals in - our 48 goals scored was just enough to reach the play offs and in the final we did as we always do! Win on penalties!

We managed to sell 2 players this season for total of 2,5 million Euro - this is the amount of money we need sell for every season, to finance the Youth academy. It wll be hard to keep competitive if we need do this every season.

Our cups was fine and in general we had very few bad games. we are stable and flying high for League one

FK Baník Sokolov - Czechia - Season 2022/23 Review

Table | Squad | Transfers | Finances

So the season started out with a bummer. We lost our best midfielder who didn't want to sign a new contract. So when he was picked up by another team, I was pleasantly surprised I still got money for him. Thanks, I guess. The season started quite slow, and we played well, but struggle to take our chances so a few bad losses and draws. After the poor initial phase we found our footing and started climbing up the table. After the good intake, we got even better and didn't lose any of the last 13 games! So we finished just inside the playoff spot this time around even if we had the same point total as last season. So we went into a playoff where we faced the team who finished 3rd bottom in the relegation group from the top tier (I don't understand it all yet, but hopefully will next season around). We lost 0-1 at home, but came back and won the return leg 2-0. So as I expected to plan for the playoff final, I found out there isn't one...? Out of the 4 teams that go into the playoff, 2 are promoted... Strange, but it meant we got promoted! I was delighted, and a bit surprised. I think it's a bit premature to go up now, but it's a good experience if nothing else!

In the MOL Cup we beat Chlumec and Zapy before losing to 1. FK Příbram in the 3rd round.
