[FM21] VV Montferland - Youth Only in the Netherlands


Recommended Posts

VV Montferland

 

index.png.70a7f79a054f8ce25a8d58c6a9e198aa.png

 

Hello, and welcome to my save, where my aim is to take VV Montferland to the top of Dutch football (hopefully), with players from my youth academy only!

I have done this a few times over the last years. I have made a few threads where I have posted updates from my saves, mainly from "unusual" countries, such as Malta and Lithuania. This year I'll take charge of VV Montferland, a team currently sitting in the 8th tier of Dutch football. This will be harder than ever, as the Maltese and the Lithuanian leagues are not on the same level as Dutch football. We start as an amateur team, and will probably have a few of our players poached over the next seasons, making it even harder.

 

My only reasoning for going with VV Montferland is their kits, as I really like the colours!

VV Montferland is a Dutch amateur football club from the municipality of Montferland in Gelderland. The club was founded in 2019 through a merger of the football clubs VV Sint Joris from Braamt and VV Zeddam from Zeddam.The home matches and training sessions of VV Montferland take place at De Padevoort sports park in Zeddam.

 

And that is about the only thing I could find about the club!

 

I can sign players that have been produced in our academy (that means loans as well), other than that, no signings.

 

Facilities

Of course we start with everything as basic as it gets.

 

Manager

Say hello to Warg X. He has to develop a lot!

 

I downloaded the db from the steam workshop.

 

Squad Overview

First Team

58b90f144b89649eb1e061986485694c.png

We start of with a big squad of players, three of them really standing out from the rest. The main problem at the moment has to be the left and right backs.

 

Key Players

49d0a509b59c65d419e8f5d4e0e9390b.png
Our "star player" at the start of the save. Hopefully we can get the best out of him, and even more important, keep hold of him!

 

0669c92d378717b919ee72c8fd4f31d4.png
 The best 15 year old at the club, and our first choice goalkeeper.

 

dbba982252e89684f1e0265fa6b35f86.png

The best striker at the club, hopefully he can get us some goals.

 

U18 Team

69aeb166225062ee2233b61cc5b4ac7f.png

A lot of 5* pot players. No one really stands out.

 

 

It was an extremely short pre season, with only one game played!

I'll be back soon with the next update.

Even when we had two draws in December we managed to grow the gap with two points, as Rheden is in a bad run of form. Still no clean sheets.

 

Some good news as well!

Youth Intake 2021

The most anticipated day of the year is here! Our first ever youth intake!

49af7fbacbbf82998e85ace5b610d48a.png

And it is a brilliant first for us!

When I do the youth only saves, the first intake usually consists of 0.5* CA and 5* PA. This time we a lot of players that is better than that. I like that we have a lot of different nationalities as well!

 

The star of course is Nihat Karabacak (YP01a)

Very good passing for this level!

 

  e98b63a6ffc667724e1f81c94369f5a0.png

Could be a decent CB for us.

Our first promotion! We managed to make it a lot closer in the end, but clinched promotion with the last game of the season. And even got a clean sheet in that game, the first of the season!

End of the 2020/2021 Season

d36e354400a2c3ec5d69dc2320bfb922.png

As I said in the earlier post, we won promotion on the first try!

Overall a pretty good season. There is one thing we have to fix going in to the next season, and that is our defence, as keeping one clean sheet over 26 games just is not good enough. Thankfully, we had two strikers that scored for fun, and that saved us this year. If we take a look at OBW, they had the exact same problem, scoring a lot of goals, and conceding a lot as well!

 

80d6a17eca78c0cff3e66cc33d2df09f.png

A lot of the younger players that has played regularly over the season has grown quite a bit. Muhammed Gürleyen is a very good example of this, as he started as a 2* CA player. At one point in the season he was our highest rated player. That changed with the youth intake, as Karabacak (YP01a) was at 5* CA.

POTS

0e2894845cacfc9932861767e56d0ce3.png

A brilliant season for Sjoerd Metgod, as he netted 35 goals in 26 games! Add on the 14 assists, and he was responsible for 49 out of the 84 goals we scored!

He is wanted by a few clubs now, and I hope we can keep a hold of him for the next season at least!

2021/2022 Pre Season

6ff077c28604ff8fe95ebc9f6dd86ca9.png
This was a pretty good pre season, with a lot of wins, and many goals. The only game we lost was against FC Dordrecht, a team that was in the Eredivisie in the 14/15 season. A couple of clean sheets in there as well. I'm hopeful we can take this form with us in to the season!

 

Squad

1f7ce4bf54ada0f60590720f488b33b1.png

Some of the players that was just breaking in to  the team at the end of last season has grown quite a bit over the summer. One example is Patryk Powszuk (YP01c).

 

Key Players

2e5909283952ba42ac5c4843290b01d7.png
He is listed as the key player at the club, and is perhaps our best player. But, I don't use CM in my tactic, and we already have two very good players in the AMC position. I'm retraining him, so hopefully we can use his talent elsewhere on the pitch.

32719c7e345012211d629124ee67d337.png

Our second best striker last year.

72bc1dd8fc5bd5cb529b9bbe096a8cad.png

Our best player in terms of CA going in to last season. Was not that impressive, but enough to be a key player this year.

d1e15f09bd0b0c398ec9867916093eca.png

PoTS last season, and the top scorer. If he keeps the goalscoring up this season as well, we should be in for a good season.

 

7822513b9e12496fe0271ce171ae7f1c.png

We're predicted to finish bottom. We will do better, that I am sure of. But back to back promotions will be hard.

 

4f506fa7ffe51348c9cacdc2edccd18a.png
The financial side of things is looking good at the moment.

Another upgrade to the youth training will probably make us lose some cash. I have asked the board for upgrades a few times over the last few months, and they won't upgrade just yet.

Can anyone top this?

 

4c1aa9d0e112bf79390e94ddd58955c0.png

This was the first game of the new season... Seven goals from their striker...

Almost the craziest comeback in football history though! But in the end, we lost it... 

Still, we should have won according to xG. Not that it matters.

Not a good start. The game against Prinses Irene (great name by the way) was crazy. Down eight goals after 50 min...

All the games we have played, except the one against Helvoirt was against teams that is favourites to go up. So it's not that bad.

I changed the DM to a CM, and it has worked wonders. Seven games unbeaten at the time I'm writing this. And ending Februay with a 9-2 win is great!

b680278fe0bc8043fdefb840b2927ffb.png

It is a far shot, but if the teams above us starts to lose games we might actually battle for promotion!

Youth Intake 2022

a927ab03bdea395f6240f292d3937461.png

I have nothing else to say than that this youth intake is absolutely insane. These guys could probably beat our best starting eleven!

I have a love for great names, and this year we have a few. Especially Dion Tjon-A-Loi (YP02c)!

 

I can't post a picture of everyone. But here's some of them!

  e46f18e88be211af25969ead76fb6047.png

The best player this year sorted after CA.

73f16db2364d40d4b45414bfbab5487e.png

Another contender for our CM position!

52f0e8590c871119c4252165237cbba2.png

Our new starting LB. He is a bit slow though. I might retrain him to play as a CB.

  96b1c4dc0b71505b25b89db4e2279fdc.png

06511f6b65111df93a361b0b35416b2b.png

 

By the way, Hakki Hoffmeister (YP02a) is so good that he made out best striker go from a 5* CA to a 3.5* CA player.

End of the 2021/2022 Season

6b77e831722f1659bdfee97e91fc4edf.png

We almost managed to catch up to the teams in front of us, a very good achievement in itself, as we were just three points above the relegation spot at one point. We turned the season around with just slight change of tactic, going from a 4-1-2-1-2 to a 4-3-1-2.

Again, it was the defence that let us down, with 52 conceded. Well, let us down might be a bit harsh, as I am the one that sets the tactic...

Our attacking players did their job though, with us scoring 94 goals! Far more than any other team in the league.

 

889b64eb3b656f2dc68caa3cbc620dd5.png

Same as the last season, a lot of growth over the year. I will most likely release the players that don't have 5* PA. Except for Sjoerd Metgod and Hafid Khalid, they stay. For now...

Fans' PoTS

997a0d9e9cb949c41e7852fb95b5c395.png

Another good season for Sjoerd Metgod. Not as good as last season, but it was a harder league as well.

 

My PoTS

6a82b8c8d5c866e557418135bc4f5e05.png
In my opinion Gino de Mooij was better this year, and he is my player of the season. Being responsible for 42 goals is great!

 

c2574c5138582201c4103cf44b665dbb.png

No pressure going in to the next season, with us avoiding relegation is the only plan.

If we keep our form from the last few months up, I have no doubts we will be fighting for the league title, and a promotion!

Almost our entire starting eleven this year will consist of the players from last seasons youth intake!

 

79501c267eea874a7ca7401deec9f1e6.png

The odds are better in our favor this season. One thing to note is that the team that we beat to the league title two seasons ago is the favourites to win the league.

 

5fcc96c2a29f5763725f2aee7f24ed67.png

Even after we got the youth training upgraded one more time we're still not losing money. That is a good sign!

September/October 2022

Two bad draws in September, with late goals conceded in both. In the first game of October our 22 unbeaten run came to an end against Volharding. Hopefully that was just a little dip in our form, and we are back on the right track after the 4-1 win against GRC.

The personalities is not good by any means though,

Looking forward to see him on the pitch!

Probably our new CB. He's maybe lacking a bit in height, but I will play him there anyhow!

End of the 2022/2023 Season

ae8c413f62b94f3a6132d243c73b4a3a.png

We end the season up top, with a nine point gap down to second place. Rheden was right behind all the way this season, and only when we beat them in the third last game of the season we managed to cement our place as the league winners!

We scored seven goals more than last season, and conceded 16 less than we did. The defence was much better this year, and might be the main reason we did so well. We also scored over 100 goals for the first time. Hopefully we can do that again some time!

 

0a186d591268e32984aaf24da9d7020a.png

Sjoerd Metgod keeps scoring for fun, even tough he is one of our worst players according to CA. I don't care about CA to be honest, as long as the player performs, he stays!

Third time in a row Sjoerd Metgod wins the Fan's PoTS award, and this year he is my PoTS as well. The assists have dried up a bit, but who cares as long as he keeps scoring the goals for us!

Love seeing a lower league thread in the Netherlands! Some very familiar names. Always funny to see them on the forum. You're going pretty die-hard with only one promotion spot. In real life, the best three teams which are not promoted play promotion playoffs.

Too bad it's not like if real life then, it would have been a little "easier". There seems to be a lack of play-offs all the way until we reach the second tier.

With the play-offs not added I can't "luck" my way through the play-offs to the next tier :P

Pre Season 2023/2024

5f262c896e2597313b723a762d4d2ef5.png

A decent pre season. We played a couple of teams we should lose against, Helmond and FC Dordrecht, who both play in the second tier of Dutch football. Dietkirchen and Bennekom we should have beaten.

 

c1e61726ac24e3bfcbd46c7a193f320a.png

One thing I can say for certain is that we have a lot talent coming through. It is up to them to get a spot in the starting XI.

 

Key Players

84db40d56d7c9620eb9c83be94b92ad9.png

Hakki Hoffmeister made the AMC position his own last season, and is key for us in the coming season.

 

97650fb6bc8e16db50dc01d45b0f9e91.png

The new boy that came through our last youth intake will be our new starting striker beside Sjoerd Metgod this season.

 

dbceeac856075a20e0487a40f53ce95e.png

We have three very similar central midfielders now, but Nihat Karabacak will start our first game of the season, and then we shall se how it unfolds.

 

827c1be7625a271d84237596065fc24e.png

Looks like an uphill battle this season.

 

e477b3186224fdef1fef68fecc0edde4.png

We're losing a bit of money every year, but considering we have upgraded the youth coaching three (four?) times, we're not losing money that fast!

I like wingers, as that is something we need at the moment.

"A top prospect in the centre of midfield is not something that I'm too happy about, as that is the position we have the most cover at the moment.

We're going up! This is the third promotion in four years! I did not think that was possible, as we were predicted dead last before the season.

Not only did we score the most goals this season by far, but the defence was very good this season as well.

 

d5af55cafd5923cf27ea3cd5786a7340.png
 Sjoerd Metgod has lost his place in the starting eleven, and is our worst player at the moment in terms of CA, but I want him at the club until he leaves by himself.

This is my PoTS as well. He has performed very well up top this season, and has grown a little bit as a player.

Another year with no pressure. Except for not being relegated of course.

Pre Season 2024/2025

a39798ed214bf4ec26a2a0531f822efd.png
We played a lot of friendlies this pre season, with a lot of mixed results. Every game we lost was against teams above us in the Dutch pyramid. And we only lost with one goal in those games. All in all decent results.

 

37745997f7208b107a1137085aa6a700.png

All of our top players have been approached over the summer, and I am bit scared that we will lose them over the season. The big names being Niek Beuker (YP04a) and Mees Roseboom (YP03a).

 

Key Players

c8cf18194184d854b2a06196287e70f7.png

Our best player when we look at the CA. We played better last season as well when he joined us.

 

f194be98256db5b070eb52b112879e3e.png

They big guy up top! He will have a partner with him that is 198cm as well!

 

f26241f783db6878fb7f3488f8bdbe79.png
One of our best players ever since he came through the youth academy. He needs to be at his best for us this season!

A decent start to season. Two of the strikers that was above Sjoerd Metgod in the picking order got injured, so he got his chance against Concordia. He has to play more games it seems!

Ah, you're now in the same division as RBC, a former professional club. In 2005/2006 they played in the Eredivisie, but relegated at the end of the season. In 2011 they went bankrupt, en restarted in the ninth tier.
