  1. i'm jealous, its the size i hoped my stadium would be rather than half that
  2. 2041 Squad | Table | Transfers Started the season in very inconsistent form and only really seemed to find form when the European games started to put together a winning run even with rotation required in many games . Finished fourth but only clinched a euro spot after the cup final. The team seemed to really struggle against teams at the bottom of the table. Reached the swedish cup final again and easily beat Djurgardens 3-0. In europe the team were much better than last year getting to the euro cup II group stages. What looked like a tricky group was swept aside to finish top. In the KO stages the team produced some great away performances to beat PAOK and then Nice before then squeezing past Bilbao even though the team was 2nd best in the matches. In the Final which took place 3 days after the swedish cup final i had to rest some players and it showed as the team lost to fellow swedish club Orebro. The other good thing was that sweden moved up 11 places in the euro coefficients to get an extra team. Finances continued to look healthy with a youth and training upgrade. Kobon was sold by the chairman, a few other fringe players were moved on, Marcelo (176 apps, 76 goals) was released. Gjasula is my first youth product wonderkid and was capped by Sweden, i managed to protest the chairman selling him. Tigana and Kuzmanovic also had good seasons. Jansson missed a lot of the season and Strand stepped up. 2042 Squad | Table | Transfers Started with only 1 win and 4 draws in the first six games before putting a winning run together to move into title contention. With 8 games to go the team was still 6 points behind Malmo, however they imploded to finish way off and my team went unbeaten in the last 15 games to win their first ever top flight title with a game to spare. Unlike previous years the team was not prolific in goals scored or conversion rate but instead had the best defense. In the swedish cup the team reached the semi final but put in a poor performance to lose 2-4 to Norrkoping. In europe the team made hard work of any easy qualifying route to scrape into the euro II cup group stages. An easy group also proved tricky as they were considerably better than the other teams but couldn't score the goals. They did manage to just finish top. Due to the fact i lost loan players for the KO stages and could not register new players as they were signed too late, my team was considerably weaker than the team which finished the group stages. As such they did well to reach the semi-final but were outclassed by Valencia in both legs. AIK lost to Valencia in the final but the great performances by swedish clubs meant that Sweden went up 6 places to 6th in the coefficients and gained 2 automatic spots in the CL group places and an extra euro place overall. Finances went up by a lot due to prize money and transfers. They funded 2 youth and 2 training upgrades to almost max out facilities. The board announced a new ground at the end of the year but took out a loan when the money was in my account . It was bigger than the existing 3000 capacity but smaller than i was hoping for as i got crowds of up to 7000 in the euro games. The chairman sold Tigana and i happily accepted a bid for Jashari as he had hardly played for me and wasn't in my plans really. Andoh was a record signing but the scouts were clearly wrong as they showed he had 5 star potential. Gjasula kept getting injured and just didn't perform. Luckily Ba had a record breaking season and was supported by loan signing Corriera. Janssens has had several good seasons and really did well with his goals this year.

  3. some of the fees seem quite low. what do the players look like now compared to the start
  4. This is why i sign all youth players from an intake, the cost in youth contracts is negligible and often clubs seem to sign ones i don't rate, ignoring the better ones sometimes.
  5. 2039 Squad | Table | Transfers Started the season well before a spell of indifferent form but ended with a flourish as the team won 7 and drew 2 before narrowly losing the last game of the season to finish 4th. Goteborg beating Norrkoping in the swedish cup final meant european football for the first time. In the swedish cup my reserves beat Gefle 8-2 in the 2nd rd to make the group stage. The team then lost to Hammarby to go out at the group stage after finishing 2nd in the group. Finances stayed steady as Hansen was sold by the board as an offer too good to refuse. My best youth so far he made 115 apps with 4 goals playing in midfield. The money went into improving the training facilities. Player performance was high with Pavlovic providing the assists for Ba and Gashi, although Gashi wanted to leave. 2040 Squad | Table | Transfers Started the season with a series of draws and then losses. By 11 games the board gave me a points ultimatum to keep my job of 6 points from 4 games. 3 wins and a loss in a game I should have won staved off the sack. European games meant a lot of rotation and the league form suffered slightly with the team tailing off towards the end of the season. In the Swedish cup the team beat Gefle 3-0 in the 2nd Rd before easing through an easy group. In the Qtr final the team won 1-0 against Djurgardens before overcoming Varbergs 4-2 in the semi final. In the final the team won 2-1 against AIK to win the cup for the first time and qualify again for europe. I became a club legend after the cup win. In europe the team beat AZ in both legs before beating turkish Basaksehir 4-0 at home. My reserves lost 1-2 away. In the final q rd the team lost 0-2 away to Ukrainian Zorya but won 2-0 at home only to lose 3-4 on penalties. Finances massively increased due to player sales with Gashi leaving as his min price was met along with Pavlovic who only became a wonderkid after leaving. the 50% sell on for pavlovic i cashed in several months after for £7.5million. My backup goalie also left. Tigana was signed as a record purchase. Club favorite Navarrete (351 apps, 35 goals) and Lind (181 apps, 56 goals in 2 spells) both left the club along with Jallow (104 apps) a youth player who had been a back up. Ba finished as league top scorer.

  6. usually staff limits change due to changes in rep but i cant see how the rep would have changed that much in that space of time. I think finances also come into it and possibly the personality of the chairman, did those change at all?
  7. I don't think Georgescu is good enough, you should sell him. His mental and physical attributes seem too low for a top level player and is probably why he is not well suited for any role, plus he seems unlikely to improve. I am surprised you have not been able to make up more ground on Academica, is this due to the large turnover of players each season or are they just that good.
  8. good youth players there, seems strange that no 2nd nationalities are coming through, usually in most nations you get more 2nd nationalities and more foreign nationalities coming through as the club rep increases. Maybe Romania has rules regarding nationality which makes that unlikely. That playoff system is quite strange, often the top teams just play each other but add it to the points they already have in other countries.
  9. The teams i have heard of (Cluj, FCSB and Dinamo) don't seem to be doing very well. Has Clinceni had a tycoon takeover, how are they doing so well? Less of a surprise that your team is close to dominating Romanian football
  10. 2037 Squad | Table | Transfers Started quite poorly but picked up to mid table before tailing off with just 1 win in the last 7 to finish just out of relegation. In last seasons swedish cup the team got out of an easy group but then lost on penalties after a 1-1 draw away to Orebro in the quarter final. In this seasons swedish cup the team reached the group stage again. Another easy group was navigated with 3 wins and the team faced Orebro in the quarter final this time at home. After dominating the match the score ended 4-4 and the team lost on penalties. I lost Thongbai which was a loss and brought in a lot of players who were only partially successful or ones for the future. I also got rid of some experienced back up players in Martin (281 apps in 2 spells), Klarstrom (105 apps, 5 goals), Ilarionov (166 apps), Johnsson (171 apps, 90 goals) and Hashani (164 apps, 25 goals). Finances continued to look ok even after another training facility upgrade. Hoxha was my best player even though he is a bit limited. 2038 Squad | Table | Transfers Started this season with a lot of draws but was able to turn some of them into wins so that by halfway the team were in 5th and just outside the European spots. I sold my 4th choice CB and then my 1st choice CB was sold as his min fee was met. After that the team struggled with 15 points from the last 15 games and conceded a lot of goals in the last few games to finish midtable. In the swedish cup the team again reached the group stage where a 3-0 win against Goteborg meant the team won the group to reach the quarter finals. They faced AIK away and were well beaten 0-3. Finances have gone down a bit this season as wages take up a lot as i have a lot of staff and quite a few decent youngsters who all cost a lot for pro contracts (min 300p/w). I did get a youth training upgrade but the board are very reluctant to increase anything further. My youth facilities are amongst the best in the nation and i have had a couple of 5 star players come through in the last few years with a couple featuring in the first team. This years intake was the best yet as the overall standard of the squad has improved and a player capable of going straight into the first team. Marcelo broke my goal scoring record for most goals in a season, club legend Hoxha (224 apps, 78 goals) left the club after becoming 4th choice striker.

  11. Good first season for Garros, on soon to higher things
  12. 2036 Table | Transfers | Squad Spent some money this season to try to improve the squad which helped to persuade Begic to sign a new contract. It also helped to improve player performance as there were very few really bad games. Started with 5 draws and a loss in the first six but brought Hoxha back into the first 11 and the team really picked up from there as he formed a great partnership with Marcelo up front. A loss in the last game to Helsingborgs took the club from 5th to finish 7th overall. In the swedish cup from last season the team drew with Premier Elfsborg and DIE Eskiltuna and beating D1E Degerfors to finish level with Elfsborg in the group stage. Elfsborg qualified on a higher league position last season! In this years swedish cup the reserves beat L3 Osteraker 4-0 at home Finances remained reasonably level mostly due to another team signing this player from me who was still on a youth contract. Not a player likely to be missed, this was a club record transfer received. The team scored the most goals in the league as all 3 main strikers had 5+ assists and 10+ goals with Marcelo the best of them. Last season he could not score in the division below and had no real goal scoring pedigree in his career so far. The midfield was also important as i managed to keep Hansen at the club by rejecting several 1 million pound bids which he kicked up a fuss at. The main attacking threat come from Thongbai. I also let several long serving players go this season in Sveijer (116 apps), Bardiqi (276 apps,31 goals), Ndoja (220 apps, 13 goals) and Martin (281 apps in 2 spells)
  13. @Biscottithat will be your first season in europe won't it. Jimenez looks a steal for what you paid.
