  1. BK OLYMPIC (2016, Swedish Second Div. SG - fourth tier) After last season's heartbreak (losing out on the title by a goal difference of one to the rivals with a home loss in the last round...) the board wanted us up. I knew we'd better go up otherwise we're in deep crap financially. Otherwise we're just in mid-deep crap. My backup right-back was bought (money! \o/), the off-season deals were not too dramatic - I signed a striker and a universal defender. The latter was the final jigsaw as he instantly gelled with the other defenders and they formed a mean backline, which was a foundation of success. As our strikers failed to have any impact, this was vital in the first part of the season - we were grinding out victories and went on top after 7 rounds. We lost the top spot for one game but regained it and stayed on top from round 9 to the very end, securing the title with a 5-1 victory with one game to go. \o/ Out of this frozen hell! The special feature of the season was that any time a striker of mine had a good burst of form, he was duly injured after scoring 3 times in a row. I was pulling my hair out. This meant my left winger was the top scorer with a grand total of 6 goals The revelation of the season was my right back, Michael Werner, whom I signed for his good physical abilities back when he was 16 - he had a breakout season and was absolutely immense in the attacking full-back role. Patrik Burda watch: he struggled with injuries, couldn't hit a barn from 2 yards out and when he finally got in form he duly broke his arm.

  2. BK OLYMPIC Swedish 2nd Div. SG (tier 4). Season 2, 2015 Last year's 3rd place was a good base for building - as soon as we get out this hellhole (no revenues whatsoever) the better! Transfer-wise I was more than happy to sell one of my prospects for 7.75K+40% future fee clause to Västeras. Two of my veterans retired, an underperforming backup striker left on a free. In came a DL/ML (much needed to speed up my back line), a deep-lying playmaker (we had problems with creativity - he didn't help this much [0 goal, 1 assist], but being a good passer he was an asset) and a striker. I thought a lot about signing a striker, but I didn't dare to start the season with only 2 senior strikers and a very talented youth guy. And this striker was called Romario Hulea, which was too good to refuse. Romario in the Swedish fourth tier? I'm having it! Signing him paid dividents as main striker Patrik Burda went down for 2 months and didn't recover his form after he recovered - he didn't score a single goal in the first 13 rounds. Later he started scoring and Hulea couldn't hit a barn door. Meh. We started brightly and were always in the frontrunning group of the very tight competition. We could have pulled away but our away record was shameful (especially in the second half of the year, a long losing streak), we kept our chances alive with winning almost everything at home. This gave us a chance and results went in our way, so after beating title rivals Rosengard 3-1 in the penultimate round we were 3 points clear and a home game left against 4th placed Nike. We were 11-1-0 up to that point in home games. Needless to say we fell apart under pressure, Nike outplayed us, scored a goal from a free-kick rebound, then Burda missed a one-on-one and we hit the crossbar once - but it stayed 0-1, our only home defeat all season. Rosengard duly won and overtook us on goal difference (37-27 to 36-27!). No promotion, club is in a dire financial situation, too. That hurt. :seagull: Table Past positions Transfers
  3. 2014 SEASON REVIEW: BK OLYMPIC (Sweden, Second Div. South Gotaland - 4th tier) Season start was a bit uphill as 5 players (including my best one, my two most experienced ones and all of my strikers) were on the injury-list, some of them long-term. We duly got one point in 4 games but an out of nowhere 3-0 away win put us on the tracks. In the middle of the season it looked like we can be in contention for promotion, but a very unlucky streak put us down to 7th and winning the last five games only meant we climb up to 3rd. We weren't ready for promotion anyway. The board is very happy with the result, so am I. The good: solid team play, solid defense, some good young prospects The bad: team lacks creativity in midfield, we have grinders (who are good) and too lightweight youth guys. Patrik Burda watch: Started the season injured, played 22 matches, scored 14, assisted 3, avg. 7.07. Gets along well with me, so was happy to sign a new contract \o/ Fun game of the season: the very last round at Hässleholms IF. They played for survival, for us it was more or less like dead rubber, though with a win and results coming our way we could go up to 3rd. They played like possessed and were 2-0 up at half-time - and then Burda sunk them with a hat-trick. The first was a lucky rebound after a mishit cross, the second was coming from an assist way offside and the third in the 91st minute was a penalty which never was one. The last goal duly won the game for us and relegated Hässleholm (who could've stayed up even with a 2-2). If I was their manager I'd be ranting!

  4. I feel it's like a cheat having him Though I have no idea how he's in this incarnation of FM. The club is having an election. It'd be ironic if a new chairman kicked me out.
  5. As the part of my usual Nordic forays, I'll be starting in the frozen hell of the Swedish 4th tier. When I tried FM14 out it seemed to be a bit more difficult than earlier - let's see for the second time. The team is BK Olympic from Malmö. That's me. I have a squad of 14, so it's not worth showing yet. But I found a familiar face - this guy was a key player for my Tenhult team in a FM09 (?) save. Patrik Burda. The board wants a safe mid-table finish, they gotta be kiddingme. Though the team doesn't look that hopeless.The few players in the squad are OK for this level.
  6. We have a Derby on each matchday!

    SEASON 2 BK DERBY - Swedish Second Division NG Transfer activity was minimal, I was all to happy to get rid of some useless players (with expiring contracts), in came a left-side utility man on loan, a DC whose transfer was arranged earlier (before I got to know that the youth team would get 4 DCs ) and a right-back. Several youngsters are up in the first team now - they can't be any worse than the current bunch I think. Season tickets: the old man and his dog probably died, so we're down 2 season ticket holders The season started with an ugly loss to Tibro, continued with two good wins, we're on a bad streak since then. I can stomach small defeats but I'm not used to my team getting 3- and 4-goal hidings. To top it off, we only managed to draw at home with bitter rivals (newly promoted, too) Linköping City. Monthly WTF Only 15 fans, but what a spectacle!
  7. We have a Derby on each matchday!

    Forest fan by any chance?
  8. We have a Derby on each matchday!

    No, but the holidaying is similar (I'm not always doing it, but I didn't fancy any of the Swedish 4th tier teams at the start). But if any other team can drag me out of this hell, I can jump ship, unlike Gundo's (though usually my saves are one-team only) Note: and I forgot to mention, but I'm playing the LLaMa way.

  10. We have a Derby on each matchday!

    We started the season as it was expected - getting trounced by promotion candidates Sleipner. Our good home record and scattered away wins meant that we were never in danger though - we were sitting nicely mid-table throughout most of the season. The defense leaked left, right and centre (somehow I thought I would be better off with a back four of Michelin dolls), but the attackers made up for it. We had 7 out of the 9 defeats in two losing runs (once 4, once 3), somehow embarrassingly we had our asses handed over by the two dead weak relegated teams, too. A 5th position was as good as it got. PLAYER OF THE YEAR Kristoffer Persson is a big fat target man, and being big, fat and somewhat technically gifted, he scored 22. He also had a chance to get a top scorer award but he was mowed down in the last match, so I subbed him and he lost out on two 24-goal guys. YOUNGSTER OF THE YEAR Jan Grönberg only got into the team for the second half of the season and he really surprised me with 9 goals (two hat-tricks!) and 4 assists. Worst Player Of The Year This can only go to my right-back, who - despite being rated highly was a man advantage for the opposition. He was a living self-destruction shortcut on the right.
  11. After leaving out 2 FM incarnations, it was time to get FM2014 and jump headfirst in my favourite frozen hell of Sweden. You didn't see awful football until you tried it. I left the game on a holiday for a season and picked one of the promoted teams, BK DERBY. Considering the league we have amazing history, like we've been up to the Allsvenskan once, in 1977! Grabbing a grand total of 12 points and 3 wins Those days are long gone, however. SEASON 1, 2014. SWEDISH SECOND DIVISION NG (Tier 4) You can't win anything with kids, but more importantly, you can't win anything with 10 players, which was all the squad I inherited. So we accepted any fools who were willing to come and the ass. man said they can distinguish a football pitch from a pine forest. Problem is, the ass. man has problems distinguishing the two as well. The staff field was quite empty (meaning, I was alone with the chairman), so in a hurry I signed a scout who looked like he's seen football at least on TV before. We soon had a physio and a coach, too. They were diabolical. As was the quality of the squad, mostly. The main problem was my defense, as I had only limited defenders. They were mostly limited in attributes Midfield was kinda OK, the attacking department looked good for this level, which meant if we could somehow get the ball near the big fat target man and the wingers, they had a slight chance of not messing up everything.
  12. Great read! I just came back to the forum after I bought FM14, and this was an awesome career. I think the fans of Békéscsaba IRL would be very content if they got their top tier status back, not even mentioning a host of trophies BTW you also managed to break the IRL all-time Hungarian top league unbeaten record, which was achieved by the mighty Honvéd of Puskás & Co. 47 games between 1951 and 1953.
  13. Now Meteora has a mountain to climb [FM11]

    JANUARY Rd. 15. Aris Ag. Konstantinou 4-1 (A): A surprisingly easy win, helped by the awarded two penalties. Kostakis slotted home one, Lazaridis the other, Gravanis and Anastasiadis added to the misery of Aris. Rd. 16. Apollon Efpaliou 4-1 (H): Another very easy match, making it four wins in a row. I shuffled the pack to give some players more playing time, Jeton Vogli immediately scored his first of the season, followed by a free-kick combination and Thanasis Skrekas' goal. Anastasiadis found the back of the net after a corner, Mokas fired in a free-kick for his first of the season - that was a walk in the park. Rd. 17. AO Karditsa 0-2 (A): That was anything but a walk in the park. We struggled badly but they simply couldn't hit the target, so I was hoping for a draw. We were on course until Jeton Vogli launched a match-winning attack with an awful back pass. We were still in shock when conceding the second. First six teams sit within six points, Pyrasos leads the pack with 35, we have 32.
  14. Tough draw, great season though! (IFK Göteborg's European performance is ). BTW the 4-4 vs. Kalmar must have been fixed by a betting ring. Great odds on the result
  15. Now Meteora has a mountain to climb [FM11]

    DECEMBER Rd. 11. Thyella Petrotou (A) 0-1. Boredom returned, neither team showed any edge in front of goal - that was our luck as the hosts outplayed us. A defensive lapse in the 92nd minute cost us the match, I still wonder why both my right-back and right centre-back were marking their centre while the left winger sneaked in and got an easy goal. Gutted. Rd. 12. Apollon Larisas (H) 1-1. We are fantastic at playing dead boring games, this was another one. Kostakis put us one up but they equalised after an hour from a counter. I blamed myself as I should have taken a midfielder off (on 52% fitness) but delayed, and he was twice beaten at the equaliser. Rd. 13. Karpochori (A) 2-0. A complete domination was turned into a goal when Anastasiadis scored a diving header after the break. Topouzis grabbed the second in stoppage time. Rd. 14. Rigas Ferraios (H) 1-0. Only two shots found the surface of the goal all day, luckily my keeper saved it, theirs not - Topouzis grabbed the winner after 22 minutes. We were throwing away points left, right and centre but are still in the hunt, as total madness ensued all autumn. Watch the table!
