[FM21] Can You Buy A World Cup? - Double Duty With Al Fateh & Saudi Arabia - Yes, You Can.


Recommended Posts

Can You Buy A World Cup?

Thats the question I will hopefully answer in the save.

 

In the year 2015 Qatar tried to buy a handball squad to win the world cup.

The managed to get runners-up.

 

I will try to transition this in football.

But not with Qatar due to registration, rules and kinda lack of money in the league.

Yes, after 3 years a player can apply for a qatarian passport, but with the 3/5 foreign rules its kinda slow.

 

I will try it with Saudi Arabia.

Simply rules...7 foreign players are allowed, no split between Asian or not Asian.

I choose the 1x time league winners Al-Fateh. (back in 2012/13)

https://i.gyazo.com/580c7c852d60b755132b8d461b08b42c.png

Mid table and lots of room to grow.

Also I took over the national team.

I never really managed a national team, so lets see how it goes.

https://i.gyazo.com/705a67b70f4c04637f58912108afc037.png

6th placed asian team in the world rankings.

 

https://i.gyazo.com/09b7d074cde52f8eff894ef28358ef73.png

5 years it takes to get a Saudi Arabian passport. (qatar only 3)

https://i.gyazo.com/d37deb39a7db3fc240056fe379b1e1bf.png

I loaded the big asian nation. ( I forgot Australia, so i put the quickly in).

The big 5 and a couple of league, where I want to get my players.

I think of Brazil, Argentina, Portugal and France.

Why?

Cuz they got a really big talent pool and not everyone can play for the national team.

 

And ofcause, since I cant only rely on foreign players, I will heavily invest in the youth.

 

So lets see if this is possible.

This should be possible.

Money is there, but not much transfer budget.

So I need to do smart transfers...

The AI managed to get into the final phase of the WC qualification.

We got 2 strong team in Japan and South Korea, so a 3rd place is possible.

Maybe we can qualify over the playoffs, but this is still far away.

Call Ups October 2020

Before I can start with Al-Fateh, its time for the national team.

https://i.gyazo.com/723529c7d0a9d097a30af9a1dbb0605d.png

Two debuts with Machado and Manoel.

Machado will be the 2nd best CB and Manoel cuz I like his workrate.

First game in charge and the first win.

We beat 114th ranked Philippines with 3:1.

Sadly Al-Muwallad got injured...

https://i.gyazo.com/6442e7f2349a628b528a755e1f8345dc.png

His replacement in the squad against Jordan was Al-Ammar.

I hope he can be one of the big ones in the next years. 

https://i.gyazo.com/280c0e9d0a5d96a7e948f4d50c4f3c88.png

 

 

Due to Al-Ammar I changed formation and we played even better against Jordan.

https://i.gyazo.com/b47b3cc005b57b65cd5fe72d9cc9d476.png

Not only this was a big win to get back in the mix for the top 3 spots.

Then...

A good start! It might be worth dragging Abdulfattah Adam in to your national squad, perhaps keeping an eye on Firas Al-Buraikan too.

I wasnt expecting this.

We did some great transfer business already.

I hope, I can sell 1-2 more players and everything went perfect.

 

We beat a big team in Al-Hilal, we were pretty solid in the back against Gomis, Vietto and Giovinco.

But he only one sub apperance after his injury, so he took that as an answer.

Transfer & Squad Overview - Summer 2020

The goal was for me to reduce the wages, improve the team and make some money.

 

IN

https://i.gyazo.com/7bb566b70cdc8433935f6643757f4abd.png

Batna was already here, the rest are mine.

So we payed almost nothing!

And I tried to follow the plan, but if I see a bargain, I take it.

 

Ruben Oliveira is the direct replacement for Saadane.

Made some money and cut the wages in half, since he was on 14k a week.

 

Khodari and Eid are just here to fill the squad with some Saudis.

 

Then the loans coming in flying.

Ali is the partner of Oliveira in the midfield, he is a Chelsea academy player.

 

The much needed improve at left back is Matheus Bahia.

He is an absolut bargain. 21 y/o, brazilian, tons of potential.

We got a 230k option to buy.

 

The new Saudi international Ruben Machado would transfer listed.

After two games in the national team, I knew he could improve our defense.

And the best part is, he is not foreign. :D

 

I wanted a sweeper keeper, so I looked for options.

Yea....I saw Lucas Zidane and insta made an offer.

Sadly he got not much left in his potential, but he does the job pretty good.

No option to buy, but he got a 725k release clause.

 

On deadline day I made one more transfer in the ex-wonderkid Alen Halilovic.

He is on a low wage and good enough for Saudi Arabia.

 

OUT

https://i.gyazo.com/8941d0951ab295ef67cca9a517b74021.png

Sadaane

 

In January those player will leaving us.

All players would be at the time had only 6 months left on their contracts.

Also nobody wanted to sign a new deal, so i cashed out.

Yes, I lose some money on wages, but only 200-300k.

Ahhhhhh....there goes my plan.

Now I need to loan out one of the argentines.

Why?

https://i.gyazo.com/de24c93f5eaf8a132ccb9b3f19f536af.png

Cuz I need to buy Luisinho.

Still...why?

 I hope, he can be the main striker for Saudi Arabia next year.

He was transfer listed and brazilian clubs already puttin in bids.

How many years he needs to get  the citizenship?

He got roughly 8 months to go.

If we qualify for the WC 2022, he would probably be a starting winger or striker for us.

Ofcause only if he wants to become a Saudi.

I decided to buy Machado now, since he is brilliant.

Payed a bit less the clause we had.

Very interesting idea. Wish you well. 

(However, would be nice seeing Syria going through to the world cup, they see to be pretty good in the new game). 

I'll be following this.

The decision to sign Luisinho was absolut right.

He banged in 19 goals in 20 games.

 

Halilovic played a great season too.

There is interest from french clubs and he got a 3 mio release clause.

Idk who calculated the projection.

At the start we were supposed to lose like 15 mio over the year.

Yes, I sold some players, but still far off.
