  1. The regions just need to be split based on location but in smaller amounts. The eastern europe one is odd, especially since South America has been split in 2. It has seemly twice as many countries in, than any other region except the Caribbean. A lot of the countries in eastern europe have very talented players, it should be split up further, maybe a central europe, eastern europe and balkans.
  2. @Ronaldo Beckham, mine is a slow burner so i can't offer too much advice on tactics. For finances Worthing had big crowds from the start so finances have never been too bad. Get high profile friendlies at the start of the season, scout all the youth players due to be released by the prem clubs in apr when the message come up. By Jul you should be able to sign some of the good ones, some may only last a season and you can sell them on. I made a lot from sell on fees of 50% which i always insisted on.
  3. 2041/42 Table | Squad | Transfers I seemed to be unable to get going in the league this year, the number of games meant rotation was needed and this lead to loss of form. Spent all season in midtable. In the league cup the team lost out 5-3 at home to Southampton in the Quarter final. Lost 3-2 away to Everton in the FA cup 5th Rd. In the Europa League, i got through 2 rounds easily and won 4-0 at home to Real Hispalis in the final qualifying Rd 1st leg. Played my reserve players in the 2nd leg and lost 4-0. Needed an extra time goal to win the match. Qualified from the group after 3 games and played the reserve players for the last 3 games, they recorded a club record 10-0 win. Comfortably made it to the final where the team made hard work of winning but Sevilla never really threatened. Finances were quite good from the euro cup run and i had splashed out on 2 potential world class players in Tsigros and Taushanov. Cunha was injured for the last 5 months of the season so it was good that Barco stepped up especially in europe. Koffas ans Williams were the standout players along with Morgan. 2042/43 Table | Squad | Transfers Generally did well this season in the league with one bad patch where the team lost 4 in a row in nov and then in mar drew 3 in a row. This was enough to deny me the title. Again reached the league cup quarter final before losing on penalties to Tottenham after a 2-2 draw away. In the FA cup the team went out to Cardifflosing 3-2 after extra time of the 4th rd replay. In the CL cruised through the group and navigated the knockout rounds with too much trouble. The final was a close match with the winner coming from De Zan 7 mins from the end. Finances went up a lot this year as a result of the CL win and clearing out some back up players. Club Icon Paspalj and youth player Barnes left. Garcia never quite developed like i wanted and with the arrival of Cousin was no longer needed. I made a huge profit on Fitzgerald as i bought him for 100k and he barely played for Worthing. Williams started the season on fire with 3 goals and 9 assists in 13 games but was then injured for 7 months coming back for the CL final, this was also costly for the title challenge as Music didn't manage those figures in 23 games. Morgan again was the leading player with the team captain Orellana also doing well.

  4. that is some comeback against Liverpool, that tactic must really work. You just need your rivals to all draw with each other now.
  5. Is that the first year Bayern haven't been in the CL? They seem to have won it nearly every season. I am also interested to see if any youths come through from an affiliate, would they have German and Croatian 2nd nationalities i wonder. Do any of your current players have a 3rd nationality?
  6. I was going to say that's shocking but realized i have 87 players at my club in my current save. Euro qualification is on again.
  7. 2039/40 Table | Squad | Transfers Made a good start but the defense pulled the side down and by feb they were hovering outside the relegation spots. 9 wins from the last 14 games took the side into the top half. In the league cup 3rd Rd the team went out 5-4 away to Liverpool conceding 2 90th minute goals. In the FA cup the team lost 2-1 at home to Fulham in the 5th Rd. Finances were still fine as transfers were not too much. The facilities were maxed out for the training and youth, the stadium capacity was increased to 26K. Itzhaki kicked off and i sold him, I had just found Neito when this happened so signed him for a fraction of the cost and up to the same standard. The defense was poor so ended up spending big on Smits which made the difference in the 2nd half of the season. Brought in a left back in Orellana who is really attacking. The midfield was good without being exceptional except for the wingers in Worrall and Cunha. Up front Paspalj and Morgan were good in patches but the other strikers didn't offer a lot more. I signed Cass on a free and Juarez at the end of his contract. Both were highly rated and wanted by Athletico, Real Madrid and PSG amongst others but none made any offer for them. 2040/41 Table | Squad | Transfers Started the season well and by feb was in the European places. A terrible run of 1 win in 10 games dropped the team into mid table. Won the last 5 games to propel the team into 7th which proved enough for European competition. In the league cup the team reached the Qtr final before getting well beaten 0-2 away to Tottenham. In the Fa cup the team reached the 6th Rd but lost 0-2 at home to West Ham. In spite of spending some money the finances continued to grow, the capacity was increased again to 34K. The club is rated as number 1 and the richest. Worrall was sold as he was keen to leave for more money, Williams was brought in to replace him. I signed Thompson as he wouldn't count towards the 25 squad players which i am struggling with. Benisti was sold as he had generally struggled. Orellana was possibly the best player as the defense was generally quite solid. I can't seem to get enough in terms of goals and assists from the central midfielders. Williams and Cunha started the season on fire but faded really badly which cost the team a champions league spot. Morgan was again the stand out striker, the team lacks a top class striker although Thompson has a lot of potential.

  8. Can you at least offer some contracts to more players to keep them at the club. Good luck with this season.
  9. Really good thread and great perseverance. How did you find this team or did you already know about them. Finding information on ethnic teams like this seems quite difficult.
  10. 2037/38 Table |Squad | Transfers Spent most of the season just above relegation spots until feb when a run a 5 wins in 6 games propelled the team into midtable. The team reached 40 points with 4 games to go and the players went on holiday. Got hammered in the last 4 games. Did nothing in the cups, losing 4-2 away to Tottenham in the league cup 4th rd. Went out to Championship Bristol City 0-1 at home in the FA cup 3rd replay. The finances went up immensely as a result of being in the premier league, especially as i didn't spend much, Directors took out £16million in bonuses. Filled the ground for every home game. and the board decided to increase the capacity by 8K to 25K. The squad is mostly made up of young players i hope will improve. I did bring a premier standard GK in Ben Itzhaki which payed off. The defence is still poor and the midfield didn't contribute enough for assists and goals. Up front Paspalj did well in spells and i brought back Morgan who was the best player. Chambers was sold by the board as an offer too good to refuse which was disappointing . 2038/39 Table |Squad | Transfers Started the season really well with 20 points from 10 games. Injuries impacted the squad as Morgan and Benisti had been red hot but then injured for 2 months each. The team went 13 games without a win. Had a further spell of 11 games with no wins and just 3 points and went into the last game just 1 point above Middlesboro. The team actually won but the result didn't actually matter as Middlesboro only drew. Lost in the 3rd Rd of the league cup 3-1 away to Liverpool and went out in the 4th Rd of the FA cup. Lost to Leicester on penalties after a replay. Finances again went rose, thanks to the TV money and a season spent at Brighton's AMEX stadium where the team averaged 24K. I got really fed up with players complaining when i turned down bids which came in constantly, the same bid every single day, as well. I ended up selling Bogecevic which was a big error, i thought Shaw would step up, when not injured he was just rubbish. Ended up signing a backup LB in Walton from the frees still knocking around . I also sold my back up RB so had no cover for Garcia who was also poor. Didn't solve the defensive problems this season, in fact they got worse. I also trimmed the goalies by selling 3 of my back ups including long time player Allen. In midfield i signed club record signing Worrall who did contribute with goals and assists and Wonderkid Cunha (i actually signed him when Chambers left but he was under 18 so couldn't join), Miguel is a HGN backup. Up front i flogged Burgess and brought in Morgan permanently .

  11. 2036/37 Table |Squad | Transfers Started with two 5-1 wins and didn't look back at the team established a good lead at the top. By feb i was 7 points clear of 2nd and 10 points from 3rd. A 9 match winless run dropped me out of the promotion spots and left the team in 4th. In the playoffs the team beat Bournemouth 7-2 on agg before beating Swansea in the playoff final. In the cups the team lost in the 2st Rd of the league cup on penalties away to L2 Leyton Orient. In the FA cup the lost were well beaten 0-3 at home to Premier league Southampton. Moved into the new 17218 Worthing Stadium and pretty much sold out every game, as a result finances rose thanks also to hefty sales as well. Another training and youth facility increase were granted along with being able to scout the world. I didn't fancy Smith much in spite of his potential. Jones was ok but i planned to bring in better, Dam was already lined up. Lesko wanted more football so i sold him on for a good price. Evans was bought in the last minute of the transfer window for his min fee which was annoying although it gave chambers and Hudson more chances, Forest played him just twice all season! I brought in Badibanga whose personality and experience proved vital in improving the young defense. I signed Bogicevic on a free who became my first wonderkid, i sold long serving Mcstravick as a result. In midfield Woodyard continued to prove his ability with another masterful season. Seiha is possibly the first player i have signed for money rather than my chairman and is a long term replacement for Woodyard. Up front Paspalj and Morgan were the main threats.

  12. He would show as coming through Metz youth. In terms of the game you would be owed 10 clauses for games played which you have probably already been paid for. Have a look at clauses and see if there are others, some of your youth players may be the same and come from other clubs.
  13. @Andrew Haines, nice way to bounce back especially with that huge turnover of players.
  14. Don't forget it also depends on how good your assistant is at judging players. He could be rating them much better or worse than they actually are, always worth looking at the youth players attributes to make up your own mind.
