The major one are Kuki, Siebenhandl and Halilovic.

Since we got into Europe, we need to go a bid more Dutch.

 

Sadly Thiago retired...he never really done much...he was always injured.

Im really happy with the transfer window.

Only Ouattara I kinda regret, I didnt really saw his defensive stats.

Since we are in Europe, we got only Dutch players this time.

 

Daley Blind on a free is an absolute nobrainer.

He is the mentor for the entire midfield and a solid rotation option.

Eloy will just be a backup backup keeper.

I expected to lose atleast one of our CBs so after I saw Pierie listed, I insta bid on him.

In the end...we lost no CB.

I thought his technique was the tackling...but still he looks good.

Hoegee had a 7 mio release clause and I wanted to buy him last april.

In the end I decided to cancel the deal.

After the season turnover he got listed by Sittard for 2 mio less.

I saw Gino last season in the Dutch U21.

After I saw that Napoli listed him for loan and I insta put in a bid.

He looks damn good.

Idk how the season will go, we got a 20 mio buy clause for him.

Im really happy with our performance in Europe.

The league will be a tough one again, its looking like a group of 5 teams for the title.

Lets see how it developed in the next 2 months.

Undefeated in Europe!

But a bad loss against Breda in the league....

 

Sadly I dont think we can do something in the league-

Feyenoord looks to good this season.

 

After January I decide in which direction we go, league or cups.

The march was pretty rough.

Mixed results in the league, but we smashed Dinamo Moscow in the 2nd leg.

This will be a tough game.

Southampton is a regular in Europe in the past years.

 

Well..look at the tree.

I see 3 French teams and 1 I knew pretty good.

We started with a loss against Ajax, which means we were set on a 4th place.

But we managed to beat Southampton two times...semi final time.

From 3 French teams to 0 French teams.

Villareal will be a tough game.

End Of Season Review 2025/26

3c0aa36780994d9ebdab56e8dbe3a626.png.b238eef5912c30d1e3721b3d991c939a.png

After a strong 3rd place last season, we got a solid 4th again.

The team developed pretty well and Im confident for the future.

Im really proud of the EL final.

But Im a bit disappointed about the cup.

Really really healthy.

We had a well rounded team this season.

Im was not really happy with the attack, but the defense I thought was pretty decent.

 

Im kinda scared, how this team will look like in the next 2 years.

Probably everybody will be sold, because every players is wanted.

Part II - FC Groningen

I think I had a decent spell at Groningen.

In the 1st season we got a solid 9th place combined with a cup semi final.

In the 2nd season we got a surprised push for the league title, where we lost it on the last day of the season.

But we captured the Dutch Cup after 10 years again.

In the 3rd season we hold our level in the league, but more imporatant we got into the Euro League Final.

With FM 22 knocking in less the 2 months, I think we can do atleast one more team.

Looking Back At Stade Rennes - 2023-2026

 

2023/24

b90f90d7d82316865ffa095bc2e835d6.png.46cbeccc267afa364c1ed1bd5fe2a9b0.png

The 1st season after my, they had a decent season under their new manager Jess Thorup. (IRL Manager of FC Kopenhaven)

They got also in the cup semi final, but lost once against in the 2nd KO round of the EL.

2024/25

4f7a607015ecdcfd83c4c70eda052581.png.d5672ddf6b30ad7c7bfdf9f5ce30ec23.png

In the 2024/25 they got a really good 2nd place.

In the cup they only got into the quarters and they lost again in the 2nd KO round of the EL.:lol:

2025/26

f9c20964b7b314c69e8858e53add397e.png.d4d4b6ed573559820ec120354d01ffc8.png

In 2025/26 Rennes got once again a CL spot with a 3rd place finish behing Lyon and PSG.

In the cup they got in the semis again, but lost sadly on pens against Metz.

Talking about Metz...the WON THE CUP AND GOT RELEGATED!!!! :lol:

In Europe they managed to finaly get past their death round and got into the quarters.

I can still see some familiar names, but also a lot of new ones.

4aaac3061102b94e1d93db13a5bafd64.thumb.png.988103eb416708507efd54c7ae59707e.png

The Overall best team got still mostly the players I brought in.

Only Tanguy Ndombele made it into the first XI.

 

Look at those players...most of them are still there.

Ofcause not all:

Svensson is gettin in his last years a big payday in China.

Maouassa is now playing in Donezk, which a bit sad.

Pepe didnt make the jump back to England, his now playing for Celta Vigo

Koita is playing for...RB Leipzig, which is pretty funny, since we bought him from RB Salzburg,

 

 

After my time at Rennes I said the goal was to establish Rennes as top 3 team in France.

And looking back....Im proud of archiving exactly this.
