    [FM19] From the Alps to Glory - Southtyrolean Identity

    January 2020 Scoreless month for our guys. We lost against Empoli and draw at home to Salernitana. I really don't know what to do. We do not suffer a lot in defense, but we are not able to score. I have to take a look at my corners and indirect freekicks. Have a lot of good defenders, who can head the ball. Maybe this is the right way to score. ...no comment...

    Winter Break - Transfer IN: I was not able to bring in some good players, and have to start the second stage of the season mainly with the same team. On Winter Break Training, our Starting Goalkeeper Offredi D. suffered a broken Lower Arm injury and will be out for 2 months. With only young Goalies as backup, we had to bring in someone who can play at Serie B level. Wackerle L. is austrian nationality born in Innsbruck and not that bad. Kofler T. is an austrian offensive Winger. He is a backup option, I brought him in in case we have to win a game. OUT: Most of this players I sent on loan, because they will leave the club after this season. They don't have the potential to play for our club, and I don't want that they occupy space for our hot prospects. Di Cenco C. went on loan to Bari. He wasn't doing well this season, scoring only 2 goals in 16 matches. I wasn't able to sell him, but Bari pays his whole salary until June, so its not that bad.

    December 2019 Another bad month for our team. We were able to win only 1 of our games. We beat Frosinone at Stadio Druso 3-2, draw at home 0-0 against Virtus Entella, but lost our other three matches against Parma, Cosenza and Ascoli. In the last two games of this 2019 i saw a little improvement. So i hope to step up the table in new year and avoid relegation. We are in last place. Not the best starting position for the new year, but thanks to the improvements I saw in the last weeks, I am optimistic. So my plans for this upcoming Winter Transfers are: Trying to sell one of our "foreign" players. I have in mind of selling one of our strikers. Send back players I loant out and didn't find enough space in the starting line up. And of course, Balance our Books. Austrian Winter Update: Wacker Innsbruck sits on 9th place. Their goal is to avoid relegation also this year, and if they move on like this, they'll reach their goal easily. WSG Wattens are only 1 point out of relegation zone. Hopefully they can avoid relegation to.

    November 2019 Three games, Zero points. What a poor month with a poor performence. We lost to Juve Stabia, because of two goals froms indirekt free kick, we lost to Perugia, because of two goals from indirect free kicks. I have to look at this and understand, if its my fault, or its a lack of concentracion from my defensive players. Technically we are not the best team, but a team that want avoid relegation has to do more in terms of physical and mental. We need to wake up...quikckly. We dropped into relegation zone. With 24 goals against we are dead last in this table. So I think i will change tactic for the third time this season and go for a flat 5 defensive line. We will see if I can turn the tide.

    October 2019 i think we can call it a positive month. We lost the two first games against Brescia and Carpi, but won against Crotone and draw away at Cremonese, who were top of the table. After 10 games, We sit on 16th position. Our aim is to avoid relegation, so we have to keep this form and have to strenght the team in the Winter Transfer Window.

    Pre-Season Friendlies At the whole I played 11 friendlies in this pre-season. It was all about match sharpness, moral boosting and tactic tweaking, because I really don't know with which formation i should go into this new Season. I tried the succesfull tactic from last year. A really offensive 3-5-2, but I think I will go for a more defensive 4-5-1. In midfield I have my best players and I have one of the worst squads of the League, so I think its only a logical idea. I won all of the matches againts weaker teams, and struggle against Empoli, Venezia and Virtus Entella. I have to face all of them in Serie B. Coppa Italia I won against Fano and lost to Bologna (Serie A team) only in extra time. It was a really even match. Nobody deserved the win, but at the end Bologna qualified for the next stage, because of their quality in attack. Start of Serie B (August/September 2019) It was a really poor start in the Season. In the first two games against Empoli and Salernitana we opted for our succesfull tactic from last year, but couldnt bring points back home. Than we started to play with a more defensive 4-5-1 and this will be our tactic until Winter break. Thanks to this little change, we draw against Pro Vercelli and Venezia at home and lost at Benevento. Our first victory in Serie B was against Cittadella on 28. September 2019. Remember this date. History was written. After 6 games we sit on 13th place. We have to avoid relegation. Everything else is a bonus.

    Thanks for your replies. OFFICIAL NEW RULE: I can have a maximum of 4 players not born in our Region or not coming trough our youth academy. I think 4 is a good equilibrum for our team. It means, that if i can't get enough good tirolian players , I can have at least 1 goalkeeper, 1 defender, 1 midfielder and 1 striker to complete our squad.

    Season Preview The media predicted i'll get relegated. I know this will be a hard and very long season. I have the worst team of the entire league, so hopefully we can avoid relegation. The squad Goalkeepers: Also for this year Offredi D. will be our number one. Tononi S. (back from his loan at Inter) and Ricci L. (19b) will fight for the starting line up on cup games and play for our reserve teams. Defenders: Della Giovana F. , Vinetot K. and Lamp L. are candidates for our Starting Line Up. Procopio M. is our best player for our Left Side and with Dal Cortivo E. , D'Errico M. (19c) and Brunialti L. we have three young guys who are ready to step in in case of injuries. Midfield: Our Midfield is clearly the best part of the squad. With Scavone M, Tait F., De Rose F., Berardocco L., Morosini T. and of course our captain Fink H. we have six players who can play without problems in Serie B. I will probably play with a 5 man midfield, so we'll need all of them. Satin M., Zuelli E., and Hamzic A. are our back up players. Attack: Costantino R. and De Cenco C. were our best players last season, so I didn't want to bring in some new superstar. The other three young guys will fight for game time. Last year we had 20,8 % of our players born in our Region. This year 15 of 24 players were born in our Region or came trough our Youth Academy. This is 62,5% of our first Team. We are already in line with our project. What do you think guys? Should I play ONLY with players from our region, or can I have 2-3 non Regional players?

    Altogether i'm spending 802.000,00€ for Staff Wages. I know its a lot, but most of them are at the club from the begining. Usually in pre-season I play 10-12 friendlies. Some of them against Serie A teams to bring in some extra money, most of them against weaker teams, to give a moral boost. In contract negotiations I try to cancel additional bonuses. Thank you.

    Transfers: It was a calm and very difficult Transfer Window. We had to bring In some players that respects our criteria, but also had to keep in mind our finances, and couldn't afford to spend money for transfers. On the other side, we tried to sell some of our players, but only if we could find a valid replacement. And it was not easy to find players from our region. So this is it. IN: Because we couldn't find enough good players from our Region, I decided to bring back 3 players who played for us on loan last season. De Cenco C. was one of our best players, and I signed him for free. I extended the loans for Della Giovanna F. and Procopio M. De Luca M. and Scavone M. came on a loan move respectivly from Serie A Clubs Torino and Parma. De Luca M. is a young and interesting striker, who played for Alessandria in Serie C Girone A last season. He has scored only 4 goals in 34 apps, and will be one of our BackUp strikers this season. Scavone M. is probably our most important transfer. Born in Bolzano, he comes back after 9 years away from home. At 32 he is on his peak, and ready to play again for his hometown. Lamp L. and Satin M. are two young austrian kids. Lamp L. will probably play regularly in the starting XI, Satin M. will be a backup player for our attack. OUT: Fabbri A. went on Loan to Catanzaro. All of his salary will be paid by them, so I was able to get rid of an important salary. He is on his last year of contract and will leave our club after this season. Rinaldi M. and Vedovelli F. leave our team on a free transfer.

    Finances In the Winter Update I told you about my problems with money and that I have to take this under control. Thanks to the promotion to Serie B and winning the league I got 150.000,00€. So lets see what happened in this last six months. INCOME: Sponsorship: We have, like last season, a sponsorship deal of 400.000,00€ a year. It will last until 01.04.2020, so nothing changed. TV-Revenue: Thanks to promotion to Serie B we will get around 73.000€/month from Italian Federation. So in total this is around 880.000,00€ a year. So a lot more than last year. Its great. Season Tickets and Gate Receipts: This year we sold 562 Season Tickets (124.8% more than last year, I think ) at a Average Season Ticket price of 211,00€. Thats 118.582,00€ a year. I presume an average Attendance of 2500 spectators a game. With an average Ticket price of 18€/Ticket, 18 Home Games in the League, we have an income of 611.712,00€. In Total we have an Income of 2.010.294,00€ (an increase of 117,97%) EXPENDITURE: Player Wages: For the moment we pay 1.706.750,00€ (3,70% more than last year.) Staff Wages: Around 800.000,00€ Other Costs and Non-Footbal Costs: Can somebody help me how i can calculate the yearly costs of everything else? In Total we have Expenditures of 2.506.750,00€. So we are 496.456,00€ under our budget and we will loose constantly. Its not that much, but I have to keep Finances in mind. With some of our players in the last year of contract, i have to see if if I can get some money in the Winter Transfer Market.

    Other Teams Summary: Wacker Innsbruck were able to avoid relegation. And this is the most important thing for this season. After 22 games the league was split into the Champions Playoff and the Relegation Playoff. Wacker Innsbruck as 11th qualified for Relegation and finished in 10th place in the overall table. Wacker Innsbruck II in Erste Liga (2nd tier) were relegated, but i don't know what impact has this on our project and for the players of the first team of Wacker Innsbruck. WSG Wattens finished their season in 10th place. Hopefully they can get better and reach the Bundesliga in the next years, because we need good regens for our team. None of other Tiroler Teams (Kitzbuhel, Schwaz, Kufstein, Rapid Lienz) got promoted from the Third Tier into Erste Liga. None of italian Teams from our region got promoted to Serie C.

    April /May 2019 - End of the Season Incredible. We won the Serie C Girone B title on the final day of the season. We smashed Fano 3-0 and Rimini lost 2 of their last 3 matches. Because of their defeat in the last game of the season against Vicenza, we were able to get past them. An incredible season has come to an end. For the first time in history FC Südtirol Alto Adige will play in Serie B. in the last 5 games of the season we remain undefeated with wins against Imolese, Giana Erminio and Fano, all at home. As you can see we won the League 2 points ahead of Rimini. Pro Vercelli (Girone A) won the incredibly long PlayOffs, and FeralpiSalo, Fermana and Renate got relegated. Italian Serie C Super Cup The Italian Serie C Super Cup is played by the winners of all three Groups of Serie C. We used this competition to give game time to our younger players, and the defeats are the result of our rotation. We don't give importance to this Cup. So we lost against Juve Stabia and Virtus Entella. Player Statistics: Here are the Stats for the season sorted by Average Rating. Our best players for this season were Di Cenco C. (Avrg Rat. 7,06, 15 goals and 8 assists), Costantino R. (Avrg Rat. 7,04, 22 goals and 6 assists) and our captain Fink H. (Avrg Rat. 6,97, 5 goals and 4 assist as central midfielder). Also our vice captain Tait F. had a very good season (Avrg Rat. 6,87, 9 assists and 3 goals). Now we have to bring in players that respects our Club DNA. Of course I can not change my whole starting XI, but I have to do something. We have to sell some players to have some money for new incomes. I don't know if its positive or negative for us to be promoted in the first season. We will see. End of Season Awards: After 10 games I decided to tweak our tactic a little bit. Tait F. played as a Winger - Support, thats why he is not in the End of the Season team. He was brilliantly covered by our Ball Wining Midfielder/Defensive Midfielder , mostly De Rose F. on his site, so we were able to attack a lot on this side. Others: Three player in Team of the Year - Our Under 18 team won the Italian U18 Divison title. This proofs that we are on the right track to achieve something important. Maybe 1-2 player will get a change in the first team next year.

    March 2019 It was a busy month for us. 8 games in 30 days. This means a game every 3-4 days. So I had to rotate the squad wisely. I probably lost the most important match of the season against Rimini. We surely where the team who deserves the win, but after hitting woodwork for 3 times we lost the game 1-0. We also lost important points away against Fermana and Monza. Now, with 5 games to go, we are still in 2nd position, 3 points away from the lead. On the paper our schedule is easyier than Rimini's. But we well see. The first games in April are crucial for the end of the season. Hopefully we can do the miracle. Update: So here it is. The Title Race. I said it before. Our schedule on the paper seems okay. The schedule of Rimini much more difficult. And IMO Teramo is already out of the race. Meanwhile we won our first game in April against Imolese 2-0. But also Rimini won their game in the 92 minute with one man down.
