    Season 2020/21 - April Fixtures

    Another decent month, we also win the first leg of the Semi Final of the cup!


    Season 2020/21 - April Table

    There is just 3 games to go and we are holding on tight at the top. Really close and intense league table at the moment.


    Season 2020/21 - May Fixtures

    Too many draws! and that means we are going to fail and be forced into the playoff game :(


    Final Table

    Pipped by a single point, to the team I beat once and drew the other. We have the best attack and best defence but we couldn't put it together for all 30 games. Disappointing

    We will however get to play Maribor in the final of the cup, so maybe I can still win something this season! We will play Koper who finished 2nd bottom in the First League, I am pretty confident to be honest, we have shown we can beat Olimpija and Domzale who are better teams.

    January Transfers

    I made an incoming transfer in January, a young CB from Georgia and hes already the best we have at the club and he was signed for free. 


    Season 2020/21 - February and March Fixtures

    Back from the surprisingly long winter break, we start off very well and find some goal scoring form again to start the 2nd half of the season. The good news is that our defence is quite strong, we are hard to break down and this is keeping us in games.


    Season 2020/21 - March Table

    Still super tight at the top, the 3 horse race for the top 2 is still on. We have by far the best attack and defence in the league but we are getting too many draws.

    Bumping this, just read it all in one breath.


    Magical last season and an unreal rise in only 10 years. It's unnecessary to comment on the results, the only downside from me was the lack of focus on your own academy, with 250m in the bank, it's unthinkable to not have youth facilities and junior coaching maxed out, I think that could've added another dimension to your team throughout the years. 


    One of the best reads this year, hats off!

    Thanks for the read! It was a fun save

    I just dont get too excited about bringing in youth players from the academy because the enjoyment for me comes from scouting and buying hot prospects and watching them grow and we never had a decent intake. I tried to improve it each year but the main goal of the save was Champions of Europe and I wanted to do it as quick as possible. Also being the Ukrainian manager gave me a great overview of the talents coming through all the youth academy in the country and there was not a massive pool of talent. 

    I have thought about going back to this save and now starting using only Ukrainian and/or my youth setup but for now its on hold. I do however miss this save.

    I just want to use this man tbh

    I wish Australia had a player like this! We might actually score goals for once!

    I actually saw him in my turn, he moved for a huge sum of money but I thought it was PSG

    I'm working from home...with FM right next to me! I'm very good to go!

    I am doing the same, I did however plug my gaming laptop into the monitor and not the work one.... thats how its meant to be right?

    On a whim... I knew precisely where I wanted to go. Or rather, I knew precisely where I wanted to drag the rest of you.

    That didn't mean I didn't count out other clubs though.

    Option #1


    Basque-Only would have been a fun challenge... But at the same time wasn't entirely enthused.

    Option #2


    Celtic and Rangers, the Champions of Scotland and both from Glasgow. The save was founded with a very simple principle #****Glasgow.

    In the end, decided not too as I felt it might have been a step too down and I also don't like the Scottish League.

    Option  #3


    Mineros was the most tempting.

    In the 2nd Division Mexico but with Secure Finances. Offer of a 4mil TB was interesting and the club had been founded in 2014. Assumed there was some serious bankrolling going on and that it had the potential to be a fun option in challenging the established Mexican clubs. 


    4* Youth Facilities, emphasis on Yute development and fans of Controlling/Attacking gootball.

    I very nearly hit accept, but as you can see it was December and my plan was very nearly possible.


    A plan I say?


    When I took over from Mako I loaded one more league, One which wasn't available til January but one I was also happy to wait for if nothing too attractive came up.

    Where are we going?





    Nice! I love Columbia, its a great place to visit. Medellin is also a cool city

    Season 2020/21 - October Games

    We take out Olimpija who are 2nd in the 1st Division, we now progress to the Semi Final and our opponents are unkown.

    The rest of the month was ok?! We did drop a game to relegated Tabor Sezana, that was disappointing but won the other 3 games in the league.


    Season 2020/21 - November and December Games

    We lost our form in this month, the last games before the long winter break as well. We did win a crucial game against Fuzinar who at the time were 2nd, and we drew with Mura in another top of the table clash.

    We need to find our goal scoring form again after winter or we risk dropping out of the race.


    Season 2020/21 - December Table

    Looks to be a shootout for the top 2 spots from 3 sides at the moment, we should have been a little higher up but the draws have cost us top spot. I dont really want to get into a playoff situation, however we have shown that we can compete with those sides above us.


    December Player Stats

    There is only 3 players who are pushing us forward with some regular brilliance, those being Banovic, Skoberne and Burin.

    We need better performances from the wide forwards to get the required results.


    Club Matters

    Mart Poom trying to get his son a job... nice try!



    We are in the red!

    Season 2020/21 - July, August and September Fixtures

    Well its time to get going and start this adventure and we have started off very well indeed.

    I have deployed my usual fast tempo, short passing, relentless pressing and a high line in the Slovakian 2nd Division and so far its working, its a brand of football nobody in these lands has seen before and we are playing well above our expectations as a newly promoted side.

    Things have progressed well in the cup as well, we beat none league side Adria, promoted First Division side Gorcia (They won the 2nd Division last season)  and a great and exciting victory over a top First Division side Domzale! We will next play heavyweights Olimpija in a 2 legged quarter final appearance!




    Season 2020/21 - September Table

    2020/21 - Transfers

    As we started with only 9 players, we had to get to work in adding some bodies to the squad. I will not go over each of these players, there is far too many and they are all rubbish quality.

    Basically nobody outside of Slovenia would join us, so we signed 100% Slovenians. 


    Dejan Banovic

    Instead of showing all the players that were bought in, I thought instead for now that I will just show you the best player at the club. Its handy that he is also our Captain. As you can see, hes not special and we have lots of improvement to go in terms of adding quality to the side. 



    I managed to also enlist some staff to join the cause, I had to place adverts to find them all, the manual method of scouting and finding staff was a disaster and I was hard to find anybody who wanted to join, so we had to place adds in the paper and see if anybody was interested at all.


    Mart Poom

    I was actually pretty happy and pleased with this, he applied for the role and we have a decent quality GK Coach for our level, he also brings a wealth of experience to the club


    Full Squad

    The full squad as we headed into the season, I have no idea who is going to stand out for us but I have time to build and play around. The league season is nice and short with only 30 games so I dont need a massive squad. I wouldn't normally sign 3 GKs for the first team but this is every player in the club, we have nobody in the under 19s and I just wanted to be safe.

    Best of luck mate, I've got a big time love for Slovenia and have been to the country and the town of Bled myself last summer. Probably one of the most beautiful places you could play virtual football, and I think I can even remember seeing that stadium in the distance when I was up at the castle. I think you'll smash the second tier, but my Maribor might just give you a tough time at the top level ;)

    Thanks mate, yes the main reason I wanted to play as Bled was due to how beautiful the town is, it looks stunning. It makes for a lovely place to play virtual manager :)

    It was interesting about Maribor, they didn't win the first season! I have no idea what happend there hahahah

    NK Bled - The Club

    Really not much information or history, they are just small little club from the small town of Bled. They have been in the 2nd League before, they won the 3rd division in 2018, were promptly relegated and won it again the year after before being relegated once again. 


    NK Bled Sports Centre

    This is our home, not sure if thats the real name but the internet says that it is and the internet is always right. We are also apparently able to accommodate 500 of the most loyal NK Bled supporters in our stadium and I am hopeful we can show them some good times in the very near future!


    Club Facilities


    Club Finances


    Starting Squad

    So we only have 9 players to start with, so its going to be fun but busy window as we look to build a club from nothing. We also have zero players in the under 19s and no other staff apart from myself to run the club.....


  12. 351180903ce50c7fc8350476ff8f2ef3.png

    I am back with a new save, I am going to be starting with NK Bled
    NK Bled are now newly promoted and playing in the Slovenian 2nd League and this actually took me 54 resets of going on holiday to get them promoted. I really wanted to play as this team so I was persistent in getting it done.  So I sat here and loaded, went on holiday, reset and repeated this 54 times to get it done. I then took them over on the 1st of July 2020 after they were promoted from the Slovenian Third League. Finally.

    The Town of Bled

    Bled, a Slovenian resort town in the foothills of the Julian Alps, is set along the glacial Lake Bled. On a cliff overlooking the lake is the 11th-century Bled Castle, which houses a museum, chapel and printing press. Atop a small island in the lake's centre is the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Maria, with its steep staircase and bell tower. The town has a population of roughly 8k people and the border with Austria is just north of the city, due to the small nature of the Country, the village of Bled is only a short 45 min drive from the Capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. I am hoping we can poach some local youth from the Capital to boost our chances. Slovenia itself is a small little place with only 2 million inhabitants but is actually quite beautiful and a different place to vist, I have had the privilege of visiting the country myself previously

    Bled is known for the glacial Lake Bled, which makes it a major tourist attraction. Perched on a rock overlooking the lake is the iconic Bled Castle. The town is also known in Slovenia for its vanilla and cream pastry so we will have to consume a few of those along the journey

    Due to its mild climate, Bled has been visited by aristocratic guests from all across the world. Today it is an important convention centre and tourist resort, offering a wide range of sports activities (golf, fishing, and horseback-riding). It is a starting point for mountain treks and hikes, especially within nearby Triglav National Park.

    A small island in the middle of the lake is home to Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church; visitors frequently ring its bell for good luck. Human traces from prehistory have been found on the island. Before the church was built, there was a temple consecrated to Živa, the Slavic goddess of love and fertility. One can get to the island on a traditional flat-bottomed wooden boat , which is a fixed fleet of 23 boats since 18th century to protect the river's cleanliness, which is now a family-owned business. The island on Lake Bled has 99 steps. A local tradition at weddings is for the husband to carry his new bride up these steps, during which the bride must remain silent.....probably dont want any of that I am honest with you?


    Rules of Engagement

    I will be doing things a little different this time, I will only sign players as being defined as Eastern European and I will let FM guide me as to what they class as Eastern European.

    I have had a look and it would seem that FM is classing all these countries as Eastern European;

    Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Georgia, North Macedonia, Albania, Armenia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Montenegro

    They also did add in Russia but I will exclude Russia from the list, I want to try and sign the Eastern Europeans who are in the EU and at the start that is limited to;

    Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and of course Slovenia. 

    The league rules allow me to have 3 foreigners in the Slovenian League Two, so I have room to sign 3 players outside the EU list. This rule is also the same in the top league so it makes life a little more simple for me moving forward if and when we make the step up the league pyramid.

    This save got me playing again while I was waiting for it to be my go. 

    I'm no playing in Wales and loving it. I've banged out almost 2 seasons since I finished which is a similar rate to you and @Makoto Nakamura, and considering I also set the game up and holidayed for a season, that's pretty damn impressive. 

    What I liked about the way you played with how bold you were in your decisions. You were.... clinical. You just made your decisions and went with it. I would love to see you do that with a really small club, (like @Makoto Nakamurain Faroe Islands or myself in Wales). Not sure what type of save you usually play but there is something special about any success you get with a tiny club. 

    Wherever you go, if you post about it I will read. :thup:

    I have been ready your adventure in Wales, I think a good reason this joint save has been great has been to see other peoples work and get interested again

    I kinda did the small thing with Metalist, took a 2nd div team to back to back wins in the Champions League. I am looking at clubs right now, Slovenia seems nice and they are a very tiny country, I also prefer the vanilla game and not imported DBs as I get paranoid they will break.. I really enjoy the Eastern Side of Europe, the West does not interest me.

    I have so much time on my hands right due to be home full time basically with the COVID-19 craziness that I would bang out 10 seasons in a week probably

    I didn't know @Kingofcm03very well before this. I don't think I have read much of his stuff. 

    I think it's fair to say that he might have just exceeded expectations a little bit. :lol:

    I really want to start a new save and story, this got me interested again. I thought about going with my other save but its basically completed now.

    I need an idea.....

    Mohac replaced him for the season.

    Crazy hahah ... did you play strikerless?

    Nice job doing what I failed! Well done.

    Very happy seeing some of the pieces I added doing so well in Gacic, Bahi, Matkovic, Sloboda and Garcia!

    Final Update and Handover

    Well we came up short in the Champions League final, was a magical run to be fair. We really are not that good but got lucky. We completed the invincible league title, retained the Cup as well.


    Surely @Makoto Nakamura can win it with these funds available? and the file will be in his inbox ASAP


    Final Squad Stats and Notes

    The final 23 man squad as we finished the season, we have big hopes for the future.

    Zezelj, Dobric and Bahi are future stars, they will only become better again next season. I actually think that Bahi is going to be the best of the 3 in the end, I pumped games into him after the winter break and he came along well.

    Brnic is a superb forward, scoring 51 goals from 59 games, hes still only 20 and I would assume will do it again and again. We do with finding a 2nd forward option but Popovic is our club captain and can be used there. I was using him in the AMC slot so his production was out, he was my decoy option to free space for Brnic.

    We know have 2 great GK between the sticks, Garcia is on his way to being World Class in a few seasons, Rezaei is also very talented

    To move the club forward, we need to improve the CB postions, that is what I would do if I was playing on, spend the money and lock down that area of the pitch. We need to also find a plan for replacing Busnja or at least finding a backup and rotation option for him, we could use Petrovic out there but hes also done a fine job backing up Simunec as the left winger. We also should look to find EU options for both back up fullbacks, its supper annoying having them as foreigner spots, we only get 5 and they take 2 of those and the GKs take another 2. We could easily get rid of Joseph at CB and that would free up a slot as well. I also dont think Kontos is good enough to be a starter for us and hes been moaning the entire time about game time, he could also be sold and a space there would be made.


    I have arranged for these 2 transfers, well 1 of them has been arrange the other is in the middle of deciding on the contract. I think we should bring him in, but finding out and agreeing that means clicking forward and I dont want to do that.

    Champions League Final

    I am very sorry guys! we lost the final :(

    This were going very well early on but they had a little too much class and they finished us off in the 78th minute, we will have to wait to add the European Champions League to our Asian title.

    Anyway it means @Makoto Nakamura can swoop in and win it next season.


    May Fixtures





    I will do a final hand over post and get the file sent over to @Makoto Nakamura at some stage in the next few hours or so....

    I will not hit continue from this date. May 28th. 2028

    I thought you had an IF on that side. 

    What's your thinking? You want an IF there and don't have a lefty better than him, (you probably do actually), or you just gave him a chance and he took it so while he is filling his boots you don't need to try anyone else?

    Basically yes, I was going to play Petrovic out there as hes left footed and can play that side but Busnja just started banging in goals and creating havoc, it was really hard to swap him out. I didn't have the heart to do it...

    I also did the same thing in my Metalist save, we played with a right footed player at IF-right and it just worked?

    What I think happens is because he is right footed, if he cant cut inside as hes meant to...then at least hes got his best foot ready to cross? thats all I can think to make sense. He scores when cutting in and gets assits when the lanes are blocked via a cross....

  19. Image result for rijeka fc

    We will have to play Barcelona and play them in their house..... they dont have Messi and are 2nd in the table to Real Sociedad...yes not Madrid but Sociedad... 

    Cant be that hard?


  20. Just now, Jimbokav1971 said:

    Wow. He's not even that good. :eek:

    The main reason I bought him was that he was a product of our Academy. :lol:

    Not really and hes playing inside forward with a right foot on the right hand side..... hes got laser crossing and teamwork. He gets into the positions.

  21. 4 minutes ago, Jimbokav1971 said:

    Looks great. If he is still playing as an AF, where are all the assists coming from? The Treq?

    Assists you ask?

    Also both Wing backs have 15 and 14 each
