  1. End of Season Round Up Having survived relegation with a game to spare I am looking to the future and how I can build a team to compete better in this league. Firstly I have the last game to get out of the way against relegated Kampong Cham. I will use this to have a look at some of the younger and fringe players, which will help me decide how I am going to re-shape my squad. Match 12- EDC v Kampong Cham 31/10/20 With survival secured this match against the C-League’s bottom side is a dead rubber, but provides a great opportunity for me to look to the future and for est
  2. Thanks Neil. It was fairly comfortable in the end and with a game to spare, but had Angkhor won their matches and beaten us in the 2-2 game then we would have gone down. Yes things are going to get interesting in the pre season and transfer windows.
  3. Haha thanks she wasn't happy.. I genuinely had a 22 year old right back, Sok Piseth whose stats were not that good but for some reason was not registered by the previous regime and you can only register players at the start and end of the season and during the transfer windows. This won't be the last you hear about player registration in this story...
  4. Squeaky Bum Time After Sok and Phanny lit up the C-League against Kirivong it extended our lead to 6 points over Solito Angkhor who narrowly lost 1-0 against National Defence. Therefore as long as we can pick up points in our next few games and hope our relegation rivals can drop points. This starts with a tricky game against league leaders, Nagaworld. The bottom of the table currently looks like this: Asia Euro United 27pts EDC 23pts Solitio Angkhor 17 Bati Youth 9 Kampong Cham 3 Recognition in the strangest of places... Somehow my wo
  5. Thanks Oche glad you are enjoying it and there's plenty more to come
  6. Phanny's Keeping The Lights On Phanny Y Rotha is already a legend. I've never asked him what the 'Y' stands for, but in the last match it stood for 'You Beauty!; Brought on for only his second appearance in Rudd's regime and he scores what could turn out to be the most important goal of our season. Dara and Chetra deserve some credit for setting up the goal, but Rotha's timing on the run to the far post and his cool finish, squeezing the ball through the eye of the needle between goalkeeper and the upright is the moment of the season so far. Had he missed, Solitio Angkhor would have been
  7. A Relegation 6-Pointer A mixed bag of results has seen EDC lose two draw one and win one game during my 4-game tenure at EDC so far, On our day I believe we can compete with anyone, but there are weaknesses in the team especially in defence. As the next transfer window is not until the end of the season, I have only free agents to sign, of which in a small nation like Cambodia are few and far between. In fact my first player search resulted in no players in any position being available. For now I will have to work with what I have. Our next match is a real six-pointer, against
  8. Glad you are enjoying this so far neilhoskins77. The Transfer Window is a few posts off yet but it is interesting once we do get there which will be in the Cambodian pre-season from December to March. There is also a mid season one in May-June. Secondly as I go along which I will explain more in a later post I will remove the other leagues I originally drew except Hong Kong and The Maldives and replace them with neighbouring countries around Cambodia, such as Thailand, Viet Nam, Laos and China etc. This is to make the game more realistic and attract talent from these nearby countries, plus giv
  9. Haha lol. The escaped North Koreans at Vishaka would have made a great feature on Trans World Sport back in the day...
  10. Trying to find a spark The next three matches As I drove into training the day after the Bati Youth defeat I passed a local high school. As the teenagers crossed the road and hung around the school gates, the nightmare of my opening defeat came flooding back, as their youthful striker, Oudoum wheeled away in jubilation at scoring the winner, accompanied by whoops of delight and that sort of immature celebration that only 16/17 year olds do on a football field. (If you watch any U19s or U17s football you'll probably know what I mean. So, to the next game, a team against m
  11. The oldest jokes are sometimes still the best!
  12. Thanks Oche balboa glad you are enjoying the story so far..
  13. Its certainly interesting to do a save in a country I know little about. The biggest thing is how cheap the players are as you will see when I reach the Transfer window.
  14. About EDC EDC are the Cambodian Electricity Company’s football team, or I suppose the country’s equivalent of the National Grid. They are based in Phnom Penh the capital and play at a ground called Prey Veng. EDC were only formed in 2015 and are semi-professional. They play in the C-League, the top flight of the Cambodian domestic league. Thanks to @Timo I have the C-League, along with the Cambodian Second League, which is split into three groups of fourteen teams. The Cambodian season runs from March to October, which means as I am starting the game in July 2020, I take over EDC halfway
  15. Thanks Celtic 1967 I'm glad you are enjoying it so far.
