In the league we almost had a perfect run but we are out in the Bikarkeppni , we lost against IA. i'm fine with that, gives us more rest.

Njarðvik FC - Youth intake Season 4 - 2025

Youth intake preview

3fbbe2bfd654e75b2569a525705627a1.png

The best intake attribute average wise with 38.68 and one potential star from my home country.. belgium! We needed a DMC and we got a superb one. and we got our first players from outside Reykjanesbær.

With Jónsson 25F we got our future DC (maybe next season) , with Ólafsson 25E i think that i can retrain him to an inside forward and he could become a first eleven player. Our absolut star is Wolfs 25B , he'll start next season as our main midfielder !

Njarðvik FC - Review Season 4 - 2025

fa0e6f313b916a6321057f8188a5f200.png

We won the league after our draw against rivals Valur. We had a very good season in the league so i'm very happy with our second championship.

Pepsi Max Deildin :  A very solid season with only two losses at the end when we already won it !

Meistarakeppni: We won our third supercup against Valur, after penalties.

Bikarkeppni: First time we didn't got into the semi-finals. IA beated us in the fourth round.

Lengjubikarinn: We finished 2nd again in the group stage.

U19: They won the U19A for the second time and they also won the cup.

Europa Conference League: Survived two qualifying rounds but Cluj from Romania beated us in the third qualifying round. No group stage !

Squad

972d130fb10d796382d9152846a4c2cb.png
The squad is getting more balanced every season and i'll upgrade three youth players next season to replace some old senior players.

We retrained Sveinsson 23D from DR to DC and he was our best player ! Diock was once again our topscorer and he will stay a few mor years. Smarason had a solid season with 12 clean sheets and Gissurarson 23B will be soon our new topscorer,he scored already 16 this season.

Transfers: nothing special.

Youth Intake 2025: A superb intake with three players that will join the senior squad.

Finances & Upgrades

Finances: Finances are good even without a European group stage this season.

Next Season

I am happy that I was able to become champion again and that I got a very good intake. Next season I hope that i can use this intake to replace some older players.  And to make a new attempt to reach at least the group stage of the conference league via the Champions path. This save will continue in two weeks as I will be going on holiday without a computer/FM.

First International youth call-up for foreign nation

Wolfs 25B is the first to get a call-up for a foreign country.

I'm back after a holiday at another beautiful island (Crete). I have read the great book Against the Elements about Icelandic football, the facilities, the DNA etc, so I have a lot of inspiration and desire to continue with this save !

An average pre-season with a bad performance in the Lengjubikarinn, we finished third in our group, and didn't qualify .

Two changes this season. Steinsson 22B is replaced by new hot prospect Wolfs 25B and Magnusson is replaced by 16 year old Jónsson 25F. Our backup striker Hogg retired at the end of season 4 .

Well I mean the general patience to keep developing the squad as opposed to buying players. But i must admit you're getting some interesting newgens already.

Dropped some points but we had to rotate a lot this month. We reached the semi final of the Bikarkeppni rotating the complete team, and we have to do the same in the semi-finals and if we win.. also in the final because we always have an important European game before or after the cup fixtures.

c51a573b03bfc95fabb3e942a4751813.png

We took revenge against Sudova and won against a bigger team from Moldavia. We were the better team and won in the second qualification round against Sheriff Tiraspol. 

ed18d077a5c17a87d21772f30ed62cb3.png

This could be the end but if we lose, we'll have a go in the Europa League playoff round, if we don't win , we are sure of the Conference League Groupstage so i'm happy with this.

We have our future goalkeeper with Rúnarsson 26i and he could start next season. And a second option for DL in Matthíasson 26H and two good options up front Pálsson 26E and Hjartarson 26F

Oh that was close! Though Europa/Conference League is surely better at this point to improve the rankings.

yes that is true , in the champions league i wouldn't have any chance to win something, now i have a chance. But in the near future i would love to gain the CL jackpot :)

Pepsi Max Deildin :  A very solid season with our third championship win !

Meistarakeppni: We lost the supercup against Valur.

Bikarkeppni: We won the cup against IA after we mostly used our second choice players in the cup.

Lengjubikarinn: We finished 3rd again in the group stage.

U19: They won the U19A league for the third time.

Europe: Survived three qualifying rounds in the champions league but in a crazy game against Sparta Praha we lost in the playoffs and qualified for Europa League Groupstage (first time). We played four games in this league and won two times against Astana ! the two other games will be played at the start of the 6th season.

With a game at Anderlecht and at home against Marseille i would be happy to reach the conference league knock out(so i need to finish third).

Squad

2171ef3bf32a7163941e5b74ff3277d1.png
A very good season and i keep getting more and more options and at the moment i didn't lost one single important player (could change in the near future).

Þórðarson 24G won the icelandic player of the year award after scoring 26 goals. Sveinsson 23D had a solid season at the back and Gissurarson 24D had a very good season as our AML with 12 goals and 11 assists.

Transfers: nothing special.

Youth Intake 2026: A superb intake with two or three players that will join the senior squad.

We finished our Europa League group stage with two losses but finished 3rd and qualified for the first knockout ECL. We beated Braga after having issues with our midfielders in the first leg and couldn't use my best player (Gissurarson 24D  - AML) in the second leg. Very proud.

In our sixt season we finally won our League ( Lengjubikarinn) group and beated Vikingur R. in the semi final. We play our first League Cup final in April. In Europe we keep on going and we were able to beat a very good Lille.

A very productive month. We won our first Lengjubiikarinn after beating KA and we won our fourth supercup against rivals Valur. Hibs beated us in the quarter finale of the ECL and i still don't understand how because we should have beated them. It was a very good adventure for our balance and experience.
