  1. Congrats on promotion! Paraska looks amazing for only 35k. That Valencia game is just ridiculous, I don't think I've ever seen a result like that by the AI!
  2. I love the Argentina leagues, good luck with Boca
  3. Cheers delta, I should be a lot more competitive this season. Thanks BWG It shouldn't take too long to overtake that dismal showing, last season was probably the worst I've ever done and still stayed up Cheers Cerud! We did beat Baniyas this time! But they aren't a team I'm too worried about, I need to beat teams like Al-Ain!
  4. Yeah, you should survive the drop this season, just as long as you pick up points from the teams below you
  5. That's a really tempting offer, you have the chance there to win a few league title. Plus, the money is a lot better than in Brazil. I'd say take it
  6. Al-Urooba September 2013 Monthly Results League Standings Emirates Cup Standings A great start to the new season. We really should have won the game against Al-Ahli (14 shots to none!), but the other games we showed we are definitely more clinical than last season. Hopefully we can maintain this good start. Player of the Month - Hamed Hajati The new signing scored 2 and set up 2. Really was a bargain signing.. Looking Ahead Busy month ahead, some tough games against Al-Jazira and Baniyas, but I think I can win a few of them.
  7. Al-Urooba Pre-Season 2013/14 Chairman News Straight off the bat, Khalifa Mohammed made 9mil available and started planning expansion to our youth facilities (due in 2014). This along with our upgrade to our training facilities almost being completed and an upgrade to our Junior Coaching Budget should mean that the club will have up to standard facilities soon enough. However, Mr Mohammed is still looking to leave the club, and yet another failed takeover bid has occurred. I've got to wonder how many bids have to take place in order for him to be happy the club is in good hands. Transfer News Transfer History 2013/14 The main part of any pre-season. As you can see, I released a lot of players that I deemed not up to standard, or wanted large wages that they didn't deserve. This included players like Mauricio and da Silva, however I'm certain I brought in players of much better quality. Mathias Cardacio (600k from Nagoya Grampus) - The Uruguayan midfielder comes in with experience in Japan's J-League, as well as being a former player for AC Milan. He has experience, while still having the advantage of being in his prime. He will be a vital member of the team. Bjorn Lindemann (525k from Army Utd) - More experience joins the club, as the German attacking mid offers creativity. Will miss the first few weeks of the season however, thanks to a ankle strain. Omri Tsafrir (Free Transfer) - The young Israeli defender is being touted by my scouts and coaching staff as one for the future. On a free transfer, I couldn't say no. Eros Pellegrini (24k from Varese) - The Italian fullback brings a mixture of youth and the ability to immediately slot into the team. A bargain. Ronaldo Capixaba (Free Transfer) - Signed as a backup to Chun-Suk and Majidi, the experienced striker should prove valuable when injuries strike. Fernando (Free Transfer) - Signed as a backup keeper to Houri, probably won't see much first team action. Hamid Khodamoradi (700k from Moghavemat Fars) - Another young Iranian, this young striker is Majidi's partner for the Iranian U21's, and has a lot of talent. Hamed Hajati (28k from Nassaji) - Signed to cover for Lindemann while he's injured, the Iranian attacking mid brings experience and ability to the camp. Squad Friendlies vs Al-Sha'ab - 1-1 vs Hatta - 0-1 Only a few friendlies, but most of the pre-season was taken up by the UAE U23's. Not the best results, but I rarely see friendlies as anything other than a chances to gel and gain fitness. Season Ahead League Emirates Cup Group First Month Going to be an interesting month, if I can perform against Emirates, Al-Wahda and Al-Ahli, I think I should be able to push for a mid table spot. Late News Managed to convince the board to give me scouting access to the entire world.
  8. I think I have, the players I've signed are definitely a step up in calibre from some of the players I previously had. Yeah, it really was a bad finish. We hadn't won a game in 12 matches, really lucky I survived then. Cheers, the U23's was disappointing, but I hopefully it'll boost my rep slightly coming second in that tournament. Cheers mate! I was pretty lucky to survive though.
  9. Good start to the season, should put you in great stead to stay up this year
  10. Definitely a change from winning the champions league with Milan, hopefully this season will be better
  11. Good campaign in the state league, unlucky against Palmeiras but I guess they were just too strong. Decent start to the league as well, hopefully you can maintain a mid table position!
  12. U23 Gulf Cup Feel a little bit annoyed at the moment. We looked pretty good throughout the tournament. But the squad was never locked in, for any team in the tournament mind. And then the U21's and U19's called up their squad squads and most of my team was gone. I could have handled that, there was still about 7 left in the team. But the game didn't even make any greyed out players available, so I couldn't play the match and had to holiday. Needless to say, I lost, but I would have rather lost managing the team. Still, it didn't take away from any Al-Urooba stuff, so I'm not regretting taking over the job. But because they won't play another game until late 2014, the game made me resign. My short tenure is over, but I might look to retake the reigns when the Olympics qualifying comes around.
  13. While I'm in the UAE, I decided to take apply for the U23's job for the upcoming U23's Gulf Cup. Got the job, so I'll use it to raise my reputation a bit and maybe even get somewhere in the tournament. My group for the competition is - Two groups of three, top two qualify for the semis.
  14. Cheers mate! Anyway, another off season means more international tournaments, so here's the round ups of the Confederations Cup and the Gold Cup! 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup Holders - Brazil Hosts - Brazil Group Stage Group A - France (7); Mexico (4); Uruguay (3); Japan (2). Group B - Ivory Coast (6); Spain (6); Brazil (4); New Zealand (1). Semi Final France 0 - 0p Spain Ivory Coast 3 - 3p Mexico Third Place Play-off Ivory Coast 5 - 1 France Final Spain 5 - 0 Mexico Awards Golden Ball - Cesc Fabregas (Spain) Golden Shoe - David Villa; 5 goals (Spain) Golden Glove - Hugo Lloris (France) Fair Play Award - Mexico Pretty interesting tournament, with Brazil not getting out of the groups. Also, the thrashing in the Third Place Play-off was unexpected.

I find it pretty stupid though that Hernandez won player of the tournament, when Mexico didn't even make the final. Just one of those things in FM I guess.

  15. Fantastic Champions League win last season, great work to finally get the trophy!
  16. I've had no luck on that front Cheers fella!
  17. Al-Urooba May 2013 Monthly Results League Standings 2 draws and a loss to end the season. Luckily, we did just enough. Al-Urooba End of Season 2012/13 Squad | Club Info | Facilities | Finances | Transfers The finances are that bad because of the 5.5mil spent into facilities and a pretty big signing made days before. I'll unveil all my signings when I make more [center][b][size=5]First 11[/size][/b] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/HasanHouriOverview_Attributes.png"]Houri[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/EmmanuelMathiasOverview_Attributes.png"]Mathias[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/IsmalAlassaneOverview_Attributes.png"]Alassane[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/SalahAbdul-HameedOverview_Attributes.png"]Abdul-Hameed[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/PaulQuastenOverview_Attributes-1.png"]Quasten[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/OmidRezaRavankhahOverview_Attributes.png"]Ravankhah[/url]/[url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/AliShafieiOverview_Attributes.png"]Shafiei[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/AlbertoRamrezOverview_Attributes.png"]Ramirez[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/MladenJovancicOverview_Attributes.png"]Jovancic[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/JurandirdaSilvaOverview_Attributes.png"]da Silva[/url]/[url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/ReginaldFariaOverview_Attributes.png"]Faria[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/MaurcioOverview_Attributes-1.png"]Mauricio[/url]/[url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/RahimMajidiOverview_Attributes-1.png"]Majidi[/url] [url="http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p563/theScarmanmon/BaeChun-SukOverview_Attributes.png"]Chun-Suk[/url][/center] Thoughts We did just enough. And I feel we could have done better if we had finished games out. 11 draws (17 if you count the Emirates Cup) is really unacceptable. Next season will be a big turn around hopefully. In the end though, survival is all I wanted, and I learnt some valuable lessons from this season. Goals - Survive Relegation - Achieved - Strengthen defence; bring in younger players - I'd say achieved, our defence was, for the most part, pretty good. Just lacked a bit of depth. As for the young players, I brought in a few and they look pretty promising. Next Season - Improve, finish mid table - Add depth to the squad - Strengthen the midfield/attacking midfield Career Summary [center]Scarman Career | Season | Club | Nation | League | Position | Accomplishments | --------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011/12 | Al-Urooba | UAE | Divison One | 1st | Promotion | | 2012/13 | Al-Urooba | UAE | Pro-League | 9th | Survived | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------[/center] Roll of Honour England | Season | EPL Winner | EPL Runner-Up | FA Cup Winner | FA Cup Runner-Up | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011/12 | Manchester United | Manchester City | Swansea City | Bristol City | | 2012/13 | Manchester United | Manchester City | Newcastle | Doncaster | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Spain | Season | La Liga Winner | La Liga Runner-Up | Copa del Rey Winner | Copa del Rey Runner-Up | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011/12 | Real Madrid | Barcelona | Deportivo | Villarreal | | 2012/13 | Real Madrid | Barcelona | Real Betis | Valencia | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Italy | Season | Serie A Winner | Serie A Runner-Up | TIM Cup Winner | TIM Cup Runner-Up | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ | 2011/12 | AC Milan | Internazionale | Internazionale | Cagliari | | 2012/13 | Napoli | AC Milan | Atalanta | Bologna | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Germany | Season | Bundesliga Winner | Bundesliga Runner-Up | DFB-Pokal Winner | DFB-Pokal Runner-Up | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ | 2011/12 | FC Bayern Munchen | Borussia Dortmund | SC Freiburg | SV Werder Bremen | | 2012/13 | FC Bayern Munchen | VfB Stuttgart | Bayer Leverkusen | Frankfurt | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ France | Season | Ligue 1 Winner | Ligue 1 Runner-Up | Coupe de France Winner | Coupe de France Runner-Up | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011/12 | Olympique Lyonnais | Paris Saint-Germain | Stade Brestois 29 | OGC Nice | | 2012/13 | Olympique Lyonnais | Olymipque de Marseille | Olympique Lyonnais | Stade Rennais FC | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Europe | Season | Champions League Winner | Champions League Runner-Up | Europa League Winner | Europa League Runner-Up | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011/12 | Valencia | Internazionale | Bayer Leverkusen | AS Roma | | 2012/13 | Barcelona | Internazionale | Olympique Lyonnais | CSKA Moscow | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rest of the World | Year | AFC Champions League | CAF Champions League | CONCACAF Champions League | O-League | Copa Libertadroes | FIFA Club World Cup | ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2011 | Kashima Antlers | ES Tunis | N/A | N/A | N/A | Barcelona | | 2012 | Yokohama F Marinos | ES Tunis | Monterrey | Ba | Corinthians | Corinthians | | 2013 | In Progress | In Progress | Monterrey | Wairakere United | In Progress | Not Started | ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The FIFA Club World Cup was pretty interesting this year, with the final contested between Corinthians and Yokohama F Marinos, after the Japanese side knocked out Valencia on the way to the final. Shame they couldn't win though. Valencia came third. Finally, as I mentioned above, our training facilities are receiving an upgrade, along with our Junior Coaching, which was bumped up to Adequate.
  18. Interesting move to Scotland there, hopefully you can urn things around!
  19. Some excellent signings there, that should fire you to the top of the league
  20. Very solid lead in the championship group Edit - Well done winning the league Had this page loaded up ages, so I hadn't realised you posted
  21. Cheers fellas! We did end up survivng, but it really was way too close. We ended up 9th on 20 points... along with Baniyas in 10th and Al-Sharjah in 11th. Round up to come soonish, I now know I need a team overhaul! Also, another crap youth intake -
  22. Great season! It would have been fun the play Liverpool in the final, especially after managing them for as long as you did Shame about the cup loss to Barcelona, but great work in the league!
  23. It's getting a bit tougher, we really need to figure out how to win games! Al-Urooba April 2013 Monthly Results League Standings Another game, another draw. At least we aren't losing. The relegation battle is a lot tougher now. Player of the Month - Ali Shafiei Was man of the match in our only game, so it's only right to award him as our player of the month! Looking Ahead We play two teams below us in Al-Wasl and Al-Sharjah, we desperately need to win both of them to assure us of survival. Next season, I'm going to completely rework this team into something that can win games!
