With the win in Europa League the challenge in Poland is completed and I will move forward, depending on what offers I can get or who asks me first since I can not refuse an offer when I am unemployed.

Montenegro will therefore added to the database as Poland will be removed.

Currently I can get offers from Armenia, Luxembourg, Italy or Greece and Montenegro since next season.

Surprisingly, no club came to ask for an interview up until half of December when Fiorentina came knocking so sticking to the challenge rules I said yes.

As we can see below, team never again reached the hights of top six finishes and for past seven years became a mid-table club in Seria A.

This season I will be looking to safely stay up and try to off-load some players to help the finances.

Fiorentina

After looking over the team of 35 players I immediately sent around ten of them to reserves, brought some talents up and ended up with this squad.

Goalkeepers:

2edc6b208900095209fbee3d778a2423.png

Great number one goalie but the other choices are meh at best.

Defenders:

f0ed9c9b54fb08f34825bb186b569a8f.png

Overall missing the quality on CB position except Bielik. Corti was promoted from academy and I might play him a little bit alongside Bielik.

Midfielders:

ebc3c8e906b73311f1e0d54fbcb50102.png

Will be looking to off-load Fountas but this season I will still keep him in the team. 

Attackers:

03ec3f9e30692e71da51e7e69e96aece.png

Mostly young players on not that huge wages so I can work with that.

 

Key players:

We started fantastic with 4-0 win against Juventus but then we lost twice, first to Inter which was understandable but then to Parma. Very annoyed with this loss as we were the better side most of the game. Decnet draw with Napoli and then we smashed Crotone.

Transfers

I sold Rekik for 1.5mil and splashed almost all my cash (7mil) on this wonderkid - will probably also change the tactic to accomodate him more od DM - from 4-2-3-1 that I used in Jagielonnia to 4-3-3.

Transfers

d067f1f8ddbefae8767eb3828afc5ee1.png

This team needed a full rebuild and I think i have done a great job this summer. We sold all the player we did not need anymore and substantially lowered our wages spent as well as pay for all nine incoming players. Biggest transfers are surely two wonderkids, Santiago Herrera and Nebojša Latifovič. Herrera is also model citizen so I am super excited to have him in the team. Hadzic and Chveja will be our new starting wingbacks and Pipi will probably be sparting in the middle as box-to-box midfielder. Bresser, Lucchetta and Italiano are signings for the future and Clausen will provide depth in the attack.

Decent results in October, we almost beat 1st in the league Inter, we were up 3-1 but in the end they managed to get a point. Clear weaknesses at the moment are our right wing and CBs, something to look into in summer maybe. Aim for this season is to guarantee participation in Europe next season.

Great month for us and we climb up to fifth in the league. Changed tactic from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2 as it more fits our key players, so lets see how it goes :)

We lose to Lazio in Italian Cup but in league we win three out of three and we have now won eight consecutive matches. At this point I think we should focus on finishing top four.

When Henan came with 20mil offer for Balk who was not even a starter half of the season it was a no-brainer for me. We needed someone new for right wing and finally we found Filip Kadlec with 6 days to go in transfer window and paid his release clause. I am happy with our attacking end at the moment but we will have to massively improve defense in order to be somewhat competitive in Europe next season.

Surprise loss to Sampdoria sees us drop to third. Beating Lazio was very important as it put us eight points above fifth place.

Great results in April even though Herrera injured himself in game against Bologna and it was projected that he will miss whole month, he came back against Roma to help us secure a win and record high points total for Fiorentina with three games to go. Safe to say we will most likely finish in top four, but can we perhaps to the unbelievable and challenge for the title?

16da6668829a9248332b4ac7da9f8b8a.png

Honestly in the end probably the fact that we did not play in Europe was the main factor behind this success. I barely rotated the squad as we had no quality apart of starting eleven so with Europe games we would stand no chance and probably finish around 5th place. For next season my aim will be to get more depth to be able to play in Europe as well and we will aim for top four finish in league. This is probably one of my biggest achievements as I took the club that finished 10th and during one summer managed a rebuild that free'd 300k of wages and won a league title, all this with having the best net spend in whole Seria A.

This time we had some money to spend and we did not necessarily need to offload anyone. Fuerte is someone I have been following even back in Jagiellonia and when he was availaible for 9mil I decided to go for him. Mrkela will be our new starting goalie and Hrncar will probably takes Pipi's place in the midfield. Caprioli will replace Bielik on CB and Filo has the skills to fight for the starting spot aswell. We still need a left back and probably back-ups on wings but we will look into those positions more again in winter. And I don't know why but it feels like every player turns wonderkid as soon as he joins my team :D Filo, Hrncar & Mrkela did not have wonderkid status when I was scouting them.

Honestly no idea what happened against Bologna and Atalanta, both games we should have comfortably win but we ended up with zero points and it will be huge problem to try to stay within top four now. On the other hand in CL we did great as we beat Liverpool and PAOK which means if we beat Shakhtar we are through.

Simone Scuffet did not want a position of second goalie so I let him go and brought Wächter as solid second choice. Also bought Thrane from BVB and he should be starting - either as CB or as CM.

We start the may by beating Inter three times in a row, securing both top2 finish in Serie A and Champions League Finals. Then we move on to play Juventus who was at that point three points above us - win would mean we would be 1st going into the last game of the season against 20th Empoli. We were the better team and did not let Juventus do anything, comfortably finishing 2-0 before winning the title again in Empoli! Unfortunately, apparently 4th is the charm for Inter as they beat us in Italian Cup final on penalties after four goals were scored in overtime. We will play Man City in Champions League finals.

10-years around the world

At first I was providing the updates after each season but scrapped that as I did not have the patience to go through it every season. I still want to keep in touch with how it goes elsewhere so here we go.

240e169284c4fc7605fd13db16eeee22.png

Noone got even remotely close to Neymar's price. To my surprise it is Real Madrid and not PSG that is the team that spends the most.

Premier League

2e570c314e99c708a04b41a8492ab9e2.png

The most recent title goes to Liverpool who win for the third time in last ten seasons. The most accomplished team is Man City with five and Man Utd got two titles aswell. Chelsea did not finish in top three in more than ten years now.

 

La Liga

556cb927a2cc32f228a32c3db557b0a6.png

Real Madrid started the decade in a fantastic way - clinching the title five times in the first six years but since that Barcelona managed to catch up (read: bought Haaland) and won the title three times in last four years. Atletico seems to drop slightly as they have not finished in top three for four years now.

 

Bundesliga

f9c2ab7b96d29b139033045598faacce.png

Bayern managed to win the title after very long eight years when BVB was absolutely dominant in Bundesliga, winning seven times. Hertha managed to get a one title aswell.

 

Serie A

78b88a2a114e3c527294eb9aa79f79ff.png

Fiorentina is the surprise to many :) After finishing third in 2027/28, AS Roma has been on a swift downhill path, finishing in bottom ten in last two seasons.

 

Ligue 1

68b92c8feb561df19ddd4c6a9b1ed28c.png

Not much to see here :D

 

Ekstraklasa

78710f14dceacb6d8d6de1194a39e602.png

Jagiellonia reign did not last long after my departure.

 

Europa Conference

35043fdd660addf8a78bdd34e3428fa1.png

Although not winning a title in Ekstraklasa, Jagiellonia managed to get into Europa Conference finals in last season. PAOK is a very surprising winner in 2025.

 

Europa League

0b2897b5d6102587c4a371720f70c64c.png

No longer a spanish teams' dominance.

 

Champions League

d4d97da971227dae1bc24b6faa4de06c.png

Man Utd with three in a row between 2027 and 2029. Overall huge dominance of english teams, can we change that? PSG reached one finals and still never won a Chmapions League.

 

EURO 2020

3ad5248bf7cf3a516ff95b1eb7fa0ca5.png

We have already seen this madness before as Norway won the title.

 

World Cup 2022

7f574be81837024e1c91c601ae6b9218.png

I believe I already told you about the crazy Morocco run...

 

EURO 2024

7637c30e84c6424b2d6d73bc323e6177.png

Another 2nd place for England as Spain beats them in the finals. Nothing too surprising in this tournament, everything looks to be back in normal.

 

World Cup 2026

f4109bbd213ac5020da841c95d7e0fca.png

Belgium wins the World Cup after beating Argentina 5-4 in the finals! USA made history here when they reached Quarterfinals.

 

EURO 2028

6918092b6bd7cdf9c804d43f6e0c28b0.png

England third time in a row lost in the finals, this time against.. what.. Ukraine?! For the second time in a last three EUROs we have a very interesting winner. Other than that, nothing too crazy.

 

Awards

Balloon d'Or

c9f4fdb075555d0d050be97253139c2f.png

Haaland equalizes Messi's record as he wins six times. De Bruyne, Lewandowski and Kulusevski among the other winners.

 

Golden Glove

Courtois won Golden Glove five times, ter Stegen twice and currently the best goalie is Unai Simon.

Wayni Henrique is the all-time biggest spending for Fiorentina as he joins us from Flamengo, we needed to free up non-EU spot so Pipi was let go to Chelsea, other than that, most of the departures were on free. Maier will be our new starting right back and Minguez will provide back-up. De Marco should have been back-up for Chveja but our czech left back got injured for 7 months so lets see if de Marco can be starter when he's only seventeen. Minguez and Spasic will both provide backup. Filiz will join academy for now.

We lost to Inter who took revenge for last season finale but we comfortably beat Hertha in CL and continued well in the league. Match against Parma is really interesting as our CB Lucas Lucchetta scored a hattrick without a single penalty and also Fred Mukendi scored on his premiere as he's only 17 years old.

We lose to Lazio in the first leg of Italian Cup semifinals but we managed to overcome it in away game after beating them 4-1 after our captain's hattrick. We also rob Barcelona on Camp Nou with 1-0 win after we were the worse side whole game long.

We lose on Anfield to Liverpool but manage to overcome it once more during our home spell as Esneider Becerra scored twice. We got Real Madrid in semifinals and we had to play without Herrera who got injured game before. We struggled all game long except the start when we scored an opener but still managed to hold on to a draw thanks to Mrkela. Game before that we beat Milan 2-0 to lift Italian Cup in Florence for the first time since 2001. In league we are now only one point up but we have a game in hand.
