Liga Bwin. We got absolutely smashed by Benfica, and despite seeing off Varzim we finished level on points with Braga and dropped behind them on....... b8c0401c5c7cfc3abc86185a319ecb37.png as a result of a whopping then handed to us at the beginning of the season.

This was a really strange and eventful game.

The 1st thing that should be said is that although I have 2 senior left backs and 2 senior right backs at the club, 29 year old left back (33a) Ramos (STP) (POR) *, (who is leaving on a free at the end of the season), was unavailable through injury and 25 year old left back (36b) Sousa (POR) * was only able to play after I arranged for him to have injections in his groin. This is something I NEVER do. never ever ever. I can't remember which issue of the game I last used this. I just don't do it. 

As if that wasn't bad enough, 2nd choice right back (36c) Mussagi (POR) (MOZ) * broke his ankle in April, (so he was obviously out), so I also had to ask (41a) Gil (POR) * to take an injection into his knee in order for him to play. So we've gone from me never doing this to me doing it to not 1 but both full-backs, with no full back on the bench. 

2 mins. Things started well and I thought I was a genius when (41a) Gil (POR) * scored our opener after over-lapping from right back.

7 mins. I wasn't quite so much a genius when they scored a leveller 5 mins later after (41a) Gil (POR) * played a ridiculous back-header to the GK that was intercepted.

13 mins. When (41a) Gil (POR) * was stretchered off

It was to prove to be a disastrous decision in terms of next season, even if we might have won the match.

Goal-scoring GK's. No more GK goals this month, but (31g) Simões (POR) 6'1" has finished the season on 15 goals (13 from 15 penalties + 2 free-kicks).

Damn and damn! Finishing fourth that way is rough. I blame Benfica and their storming xG!

Gil has gone down in club folklore :D :idiot: 

Getting a cruciate injury though :(

Congrats on the cup win :thup:

Will your facilities pop back to 20?

Why the board not let you increase assistant’s wages? Weird.

Almost £30M lost a season is significant. I think your making more though. 

Good season, and felt more enjoyable after the twerks at the beginning :thup:

We give it a good go for 3rd, but just came up a little short. I don't mind if I'm honest. Had 4th not been given a Champions league place I would have minded more, but as it is, who cares really. 

(41a) Gil (POR) * was already one of my favourite players in the save. :lol:

I'm not completely sure what's going on with the facilities. I think the Training facilities will, but I never did use the editor to up the others to L20. 

This board are strange. Can't wait until he leaves. 

Where does it say that we have lost £30M in a season. We've got £79M in the bank and it's showing me that we have made a profit over the season of £4.5M this season compared to a profit of £17M last season, but I would expect that we are due some more income between now and the end of the actual season.

1st Team squad. Jul 2046

GK's

(31g) Simões (POR) 6'1" played every game last season, (52), and ideally he will do so again this season. 

9dea3a7483e1ae89209082828f04089f.png

DL

(36b) Sousa (POR) * is an established 1st Team squad member, but with (33a) Ramos (STP) (POR) * having left on a free and joined Cadiz in Spain, (where he's valued at £11.5M), I'm asking (36f) Antunes (POR) * to step up. 

f0640d73cebbc2c4fb9cdacdf3891031.png

DR

We're struggling just a little in this area as (41a) Gil (POR) * will be out for the rest of the year. (36c) Mussagi (POR) (MOZ) * will be 1st choice in his absence and I will ask (42e) Crespo (POR) * to step up. 

3aa630a4f6bd2f98bf8b1b0873681209.png

DC

(39c) Salgueiro (POR) 6'4" DC has been re-trained as a centre-half and he will be 1st choice with (35f) Azevedo 6'2", but (35f) Azevedo 6'2" shouldn't really be 1st choice and we're lacking a little here. (41d) Hussein (TAN) 6'5" * and 32 yo (30g) Coelho (POR) 6'4" * will be the 2nd pairing but (30g) Coelho (POR) 6'4" * is really on his last legs and probably won't make the 2nd half of the season the way his physicals are dropping. His replacement will probably be (42b) Felizardo (POR) 5'10" DC, who is another converted midfielder, but at 5'10" it's a risk. 

3758d3c64ad94f2cc786f6761ebcab3b.png

MC.

(35a) Paulo Júnior (POR) * and (40a) Sérgio (POR) * will be my 1st choice pairing in the middle of the pitch, with 17 yo (44c) Ogbu (ENG) (NGA) * and (36a) Cruz (POR) * being the 2nd pairing. 

6e8d5d4278f6fa62dc08960c4323a6e2.png

ML & MR. Ideally I would like the opposing wide players to each prefer the same foot, (so 1 inverts as the other stays wide), but I'm also not adverse to them both staying wide. What I don't want though of for both of them to come inside and clog the middle of the pitch up. 

I think I will probably start with (32b) Moucheira (POR) and (39b) Tiago (POR), (who both stay wide), but after that there are a wealth of options all at a similar level. 

0621b7edb01cd1127daa50c281f4c117.png

SC

(32g) Ramos (POR) and (41c) Abrantes (POR) * will be our 1st choice pairing, with (39d) Rebelo (POR) * and (41g) Amaral (POR) * providing support. They scored 47 goals and 20 assists between them, but I think it could and should be higher. 

(45c) Rosa (POR) * and (44a) Simões (POR) * will play as many games as possible in the B Team.

(46b) Pereira (POR) and (46a) Naldo (POR) (BRA) will be left to terrorize the U19 opposition. 

I don't really care about the U23's but the best of the rest who haven't gone out on loan will play for them I suppose.

looks a little bit thin at GK and the FB's. You didn't mention Moreira, he looks like he could still do a job for the team or are looking to sell him on?

Yeah, we are definitely short at GK, but while (31g) Simões (POR) 6'1" is 30 years old, this is less of an issue than it would be if he were an outfield player. He's contracted for 4 more years so I'm not hugely bothered about it. The others are good enough to come in and do a job if needed. 

Full back is more of a concern and after losing (33a) Ramos (STP) (POR) * on a free on the left side, to also lose (41a) Gil (POR) * to a long term injury on the right is a huge blow. That being said, I think the players I've brought in are reasonable and should be ok. It's more of a long-term issue than an issue right now. 

There are 2 Moreira's on the fringes I think so I'm not sure which one. 

(36k) Moreira (POR) is very much a centre-half who can play right back rather than the other way around, and he doesn't make the best 4 so I'm looking to loan him out. 

(39a) Moreira (POR) * is a striker and while I've no doubt he could do a job for us as 1 of the 2nd choice pairing, he's 22 and I would rather see him get a full season of football under his belt while he's still in his development window.

Considering the others you talked about were younger, it seemed like you had already passed on him

No. Not really passed on him as such. More that I deem it more important that he plays a full season somewhere rather than a bit-part of our season. 

With the really young players, I want them at their club to mould their PPM development, but with him he's 22 now and I'm running out of time to get him as close to his PA as I can. The only way to do that at the club is to start him, (and he's not going to be 1st choice), so after that he's either a back-up playing a bit-part role or he's playing at a lower level, (the B Team for example). 

IMO he's too good for the B Team and I even think he should go out on loan to a club playing in Europe rather than just a Liga Bwin side, but I possibly can't afford to be that choosy. 

In actual fact the club that came in with the best offer for him was Lokomotiv Moscow, who although they are in a non-playable structure, (and I'm not sure how that impacts on development anymore), are playing in the Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round, (where they beat Brondby in the 1st (neutral) leg. They aren't paying his wages so long as he plays, and when he doesn't play they will pay 50% of his wages. I'm happy with that in this development period, but might expect someone to pay more if he goes out on loan again next season. 

The main 2 problems I have with him is that while I like the look of him as a secondary striker, he's left-footed and that's the side that our primary striker plays on. In addition to that I've been unable to get him to forget the "plays with back to goal" PPM. So this makes it even more concrete that he's a 2nd striker rather than a 1st striker, but then he's a lefty being asked to play on the right of a 2. (Thinking about it though.... when he plays with his back to goal being a lefty might be more advantageous). Anyway, I need him to go away and improve. 

His CA is 111 of 151 PA and I would like to think he can get to 122 this season and then 133 next season, (but I'm not sure how realistic that is).

in spite of being a leftie surely the ppm 'uses outside of the foot' would negate that? and he is not left only - i've never seen that ppm, must be a new one.

Looking at his attributes he's good but not great in any one role, if his passing was higher it would be better.

B Team Squad selection. Aug 2046

The rules for Liga 2 are pretty simple for a Senior squad, but become pretty demanding for B Teams. 

Under normal circumstances a match squad must have 3 players trained by a club in Portugal, but for B Teams this is increased to 10 players. This isn't a problem for us because everyone is HG at club, (or becomes HG at club shortly). 

Where things become more difficult is the rule that B Teams can only have 2 players aged over 23 in any match squad. This was something I was unaware of initially and it scuppered my plans to play Senior players who had fully developed and were a little short of 1st Team standard. 

Instead I opted last season to never play O23 players at all ever. This B Team is all about development, so playing players who are 23+ seems counter-productive. Obviously this had an impact on us and it's why we dropped from 1st in 2044/45 to 6th in 2045/46. 

I want to use the B Team as a route to fast-track young players from Youth football to Liga Bwin level. 

A perfect example of this is the strike pairing of (45c) Rosa (POR) * and (44a) Simões (POR) *

Yeah, he's not left only, but he's not great with his right either.

He has a few different PPM's.

a94dee59b5b97bd09a477cc94b76e001.png

I hadn't actually considered that recently, (although have done in the past), and yeah I think you're correct about him benefitting from this. I really hope he develops well in Russia.

No wonder he hasn't been successful. With too many traits overall and some which seem opposite to each other,  he must be trying to do several at the same time :lol:

Liga Bwin. We should have 3 wins from 3 here. We can't afford to keep dropping points if we hope to challenge the big boys. 

xG watch
Belenenses 2.66 - 0.79 Varzim. 
Famalicao 0.21 - 2.38 Belenenses. How did they score 2 goals with a 0.21 xG? 
Belenenses 2.29 - 0.80 Guimaraes.

Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira. We led and dominated early on, but when they had a player sent off for a 2nd yellow on 68 mins it seemed to inspire them and they scored 2 quick goals, (1 a penalty), to run out winners. :(

Champions League Group draw. PSG and Milan make this a pretty tough group, so 3rd will probably be our aim again.

You can't actually have contradictory PPM's, but I blame some of the PPM's on his loan spells.
