Africanos Bragança - Portugal - Season 9 (2030/2031) Review - 1st tier - Liga Portugal BWIN

Liga Portugal BWIN:  What a rollercoaster, it has been a long time since I experienced such a relegation battle and I have enjoyed and suffered. On the last match day we were two points ahead of Vizela , they had to face Braga at home and we had to face Porto. I knew I wasn't going to win... we lost by 6 0 but Vizela didn't win , so we stay in the BWIN for another year! This is really a miracle with this squad and I don't know if I can do it again next year. Varela 28D  had a great season with 9 goals and 12 assits. Our best academy player Veiga 27G finally signed a new contract (unfortunately with a very low release clause) . Miranda 30C was the youngest player ever in the BWin and also youngest goal scorer. And do you remember Evora 25J , the player who didn't want to talk anymore and left for free a few seasons ago ? after three seasons of searching for a club he retired . it's a shame !

Taça de Portugal: Lost in the 5th round against Famalicao .

Taça De Liga - Allianz CupWe beated Vizela and Moreinense to finish last in the group stage.

U23:  First season for our U23 and they finished last with only 2 points. No relegation.

U19: Our U19 finished 10th in the first tier and managed to stay up after finishing 4th in the relegation playoffs.

For the first time , not one but two Academy players as key players . Lopes 30F had a very good first season as first choice goalkeeper and Antunes 29A had a good season as second best central defender.

Academy graduate with most Appearances (This season)

Veiga 27G is our best player and played the most minutes.

Miscellaneous & Finances

New kits for our first season in the BWIN. We got Betano as shirtsponsor, they were already kitsponsor for Benfica, Sporting , Braga and many more. In real life they almost were the main sponsor for the Portugese first division : BWIN will be the main sponsor of the Portuguese League while BETANO threatens legal action (

We received a U23 team. They will play in the U23 Liga Revelaçao . 

We also got our first affiliated club , a team near Lisbon

We received 3M TV money + 2.4M sponsorship money and had a much higher attendance in our rented stadion so our Finances are looking much better now.

After receiving our sponsorship money, we are healthy again and we got two upgrades.. Junior coaching only the second upgrade since season 2.

Aim for next season

I am satisfied with our progression. an U23 team, a first partnership, financially healthier, some upgrades ! Hopefully I can survive a few more years and then take the next steps. In the short term I hope to do some upgrades and keep the better players for two,three years till i get some new good prospects.

Africanos Bragança - Portugal - Youth Intake - Class 2032

Preview

The preview was a good indicator this time ! This intake destroyed the record of Class 27 ( average attribute rating 35.96) with 39.25 average ! We received 8 players above 40% and we almost have a future new backline.

Determination wise it is also the best intake ever with 11.13 Det average. All the players from Class 32 received a contract. Really happy with this progress and our recent promotion and current upgrades are for sure helping us.

Can't show and post them all but i'm really excited about above seven . Silva 32L and Santos 32E could become our future fullbacks and i really  needed a WBL, so i'm happy. Cabral 32M has the PA and could become our next number 1,but his personality isn't good. With Andrade 32K we have a third very good central defender in our squad. Oliveira 23H has some really good passing attributes and Lopes 32i can be retrained as a IFL . Lopes 32i can be retrained as a IFL . Forward Lima 32G could become a first team player.

Liga Portugal BWIN:  A good second season at the highest level despite a weak start. Our back row was particularly good and we never got into trouble. Varela 28D and Almeida 27B had a very good season with both 9 goals from the wing positions. At the start of the season, our captain Oliveira retired.


Taça de Portugal: Had a very good run but Porto destroyed us in the semi finals.

Taça De Liga - Allianz CupWe finished last in the group stage.

U23:  Finished last but no relegation.

U19: Our U19 finished 7th in the first tier and relegated after finishing 6th in the relegation playoffs.

Lopes 30F had a great season with 9 clean sheets and 11 PotM. Antunes 29A had a very good season at the back and Varela 28D scored 9 goals as our IFR.

Miscellaneous & Finances

Our current president won the elections and is elected for another term.

We also got our second and third affiliated club , a Spanish team and a lower league team from Portugal with good facilities.

Our finances are good so we were able to upgrade some important things:

Aim for next season

Progress again in terms of final ranking, much better intake and better finances. Hopefully I can repeat this a few more times in the coming seasons. Next season I will add some talents from the last class to strengthen the defence. the next seasons I hope to get some attacking power.

Nice season. At least you didn't need any final day survival miracles :D

Thanks , idd !

Three issues I need to address before I'll ever got a chance to compete for BWIN are:

I'll need to be able to give my players a much higher minimum release clause. 5 of my 7 bigger talents are having a very low ( 20k max) clause. If I didn't agree , I couldn't give them new contracts.  I tried to wait with one( Evora) but he left on a free. 

Other issue is that almost none of my players are getting called up for Cape Verde U20 or U23, at the moment two in the u23 squad. Really strange.because most of my youngsters from the senior squad are much better players.

Third smaller problem is our rented stadium.  We need our own but that will be solved if our finances grow.

Your Personalities could use some improvement.

Also, those minimum release clauses are a problem if they show any real ability while your playing in the BWIN.

Yes i know, at the moment nobody is wanted.. our 17 year old goalkeeper was the third best in BWIN .. really strange again :) but lets keep it that way till i can offer higher release clauses.

After ten seasons only one offer was made for my youth player (Evora that already left an retired) . Even no loan offers for any of my players.

That's a bit strange really..

But at the same time you know the challenge you signed up for :)

Maybe it is European Bias of the Team or that Cape Verde isn't known as Soccer "Factory".   I bet if they players were Portuguese, they'd be snapped up left and right!

 

Yes that could be the case. i started this save with a Cape Verde database and the teams from Cape Verde are lacking money and reputation so they can't make offers for my players.. even no loan offers. But the best teams from Cape Verde signed some of my released academy players on a free transfer.

I know ! the issue with the stadium will be fixed soon (i'm sure) and @XaWshowed me that he had many senior Cape Verde players in 2035/2036 so i just have to wait.

The issue with the minimum release clause.. not sure if Xaw had those issues but it's never negotiable and always very very low (below 20k for most of them, my best one now has a 'big' release clause for 40k.

First Eleven - Season 11

44ae29f07ec33b8a0486cdae9be9408e.png
We start the season with above eleven. Two of the last class are included in the first eleven . I have options to extend every contract of above players, only our best player Varela 28D could leave for free in two seasons, i hope i can agree a new contract with him. 6 players have a very low minimum release clause, could become a problem in the near future.

Average age: 19.1
