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


Recommended Posts

Nice work. Building a strong squad, making good youth groups, and using those SAR (Saudi Riyals) to improve your facilities. Oil money being put to good use :cool:

Now I only need to get rid of the board plan of "Sign players and sell for profit" so they dont accept every bid.

Despite injecting over 24 million oil money each year. :D

 

The following plan I will try to follow the next years:

 

- make groups of players with the same language, so they can help themself and feel themself "home"

I got now 3 Argentines and 4 Brazilians and 1 French. Once Uvini get naturalized I got a foreign spot free.

I got a 20 y/o French man on the shortlist from Monaco for peanuts. Same as Zagre, no youth caps and no 2nd nationality.

In the U19 they are now 3 spanish, 1 portugues and 1 brazilian.

 

- fill the youth teams with foreign yougsters

Since there is no restrictions in the U19 or U21 league, they can freely play until 21.

After that I use them in the squad or I will loan them out to my affiliates, which are playing in the 2nd tier.

Then they are 4 years in the country and only 1 year to go.

 

Im willing to pay under 500k or compensation for those players.

I will take over the scouting in the next season, once I got enough scouts.

The focus will be heavy on Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Spain and France.

 

- Looking through tier 1 and tier 2 every December for usefull player and put them on a shortlist.

So I can monitor them and react, if someone leaves the country to soon.

 

The good news is, the smaller clubs are picking up young brazilians.

The bad news is, they cant handle the registration rules, so 3-4 players are always not registered.

And then ofcause transfer listed.

 

- looking for bargains and free players

The usually tings.

Idk what to expect yet.

But since 2 out of 3 teams advancing from each group, I want into the next round.

End Of Season Review 2021

https://i.gyazo.com/4caedd0573dc9dd342091442ad7888ca.png

We had an amazing year of 2021.

We won the WAFF Championship for the first time and managed to qualify for the World Cup 2022.

Lets see, what we can do in 2022.

https://i.gyazo.com/02aec162b3626c4252c8e9b4f552af9b.png

We are finishing the year on place 45th in the world rankings.

We peaked for a short time place 41st.

January 2021 Part 1 - Transfers

OUT

https://i.gyazo.com/726f59942c368b951f4aac9777514fd8.png

Napolitano left us after 1 year. Sadly he didnt show much.

One of the fails transfer went to China in Al-Malki. We made some profit too.

And Galeano left us too after 1 year out of loan in South Korea.

Napolitano / Al-Malki / Galeano / Al-Zaqaan

IN

https://i.gyazo.com/df3de79f446e0812c323895da58cc86b.png

Ofcause I invested some of the money.

https://i.gyazo.com/9850196f4e5ed1401718f0db9b8a7a7a.png

Since we are playing in the AFC Champions League there are different registration rules.

3 foreign + 1 asia foreign

So I treated myself with a Thai beast.

Cabral and Correia will join the loan army.

 

The last 3 guys are project players, who will be playing in the U19 until next season.

Great news on Luisinho at last. So it was waiting 5 years of living in KSA that was delaying his availability? After that length of time living in The Magic Kingdom, he really deserves it ;)

I managed Mueanta at APOEL in Cyprus last year. If you can get him alongside Panya that would be a good thing. Do you have any special allowance for Asian players not from KSA?

Your actual Saudi players are doing well (club and country).

Can I ask where you got the Saudi league edited database file from?

It think, it works like this. 5 years in the country to get a pass and then wait like 6 months to be eligiable.

I will monitor it with other players.

Sounds great.

There is just a simple "7 foreign players are allowed. rule. So I need to fill those spots wisely.

In the AFC CL u can only use 3 foreign + 1 asia foreign.

I didnt really expect that tbh.

The league is basicly like what I call "LLM".

You need a working tactic and gettin the right players and you dominate the small league or get promoted to the top tier pretty easy.

 

The national team looks ingame pretty damn good statswise.

They got a decent generation where they all like 26-28 y/o.

I'm doing a similar thing to you in Gibraltar - I've only fairly recently taken the NT job but in my experience so far the point at which they can play for the NT seems really variable.

You have to live in Gib for 2 years to become elegible if you're otherwise British and 5 years if not - I bought a load of English Youngsters at the end of their contract (i.e. they all joined on the same day), but the days they became elegible for NT selection were all different. One was almost exactly 2 years later, some were months afterwards. I've got a couple more becoming eligble soon so I'll see what happens there....

Enjoying following this save :)

Happy with the offense, but not happy with the defense.

Luisinho had a good first game, he got 2 assists.

Ribamar is on fire, there are interest from other clubs and he still got a release clause.

The final goal of the season score Bu Humaid, which is retiring.

June 2022

I hope this is the right choice.

Chinese and Braziliian clubs wanted to use his 4,3mio release clause.

So I offered him out and was praying a Saudi club put in a bid.

https://i.gyazo.com/de8ff27ae346b9bd6b42502f765a04e6.png

He had an amazing season.

https://i.gyazo.com/1f7a234206ba570e569783930a815a43.png

He needs roughly 3 more years and he can become a Saudi.

So I need to monitor it.

His replacement will be...

Excellent updates again. If you had to lose Ribamar it was a good decision to allow Saudi clubs to take him. Hopefully he won't be sold abroad. The replacement Mueanta should team up well with Panya and your Brazilian Saudis. Congratulations on the title, but don't celebrate the triumph with alcohol or you'll be in big trouble :lol:

Money money money!

 

The important outs are Ribamar, Madu and Lucas Rodriguez.

The goal was to sell the decent player to other Saudi clubs for market value prizes.

I need to monitor Ribamar and Rodriguez, since I want both for the national team.

Ribamar / Lucas Rodriguez / A. Madu

Other notable out are: Matias Borgogno / Alan Cardoso / Matheus Bahia

Haha. :D

Yes its a gamble.

Like I said, I will monitor him and if he gets listed or wanted by foreign teams, I will jump in.

Im happily will structure my team again, just for him.

 

I made enough money this summer to burn some.

Like I do with Guanca.

He comes in on a free, but I will pay him to play basicly the cup games, since I cant register him.

He need only 321 days to get the Saudi pass and he will be our starting DLP in the national team for hopefully the next World Cup.

T. Al-Khamis / T. Al-Harbi / A. Khamees / S. Al-Dossary / Perez

And those players will join the loan army:
