  1. Milano City is one I've been contemplating as well, trying a catenaccio setup. Good luck!
  2. Well, not quite sure what happened but everything went south in year 3. Too many changes maybe. Got off to a bad start, stabilized a bit midseason and then it was like the players quit. 5 straight losses, 8th place and we were fired in March. Probably try Slovenia next, maybe after England though. Not done in Scotland but I may use a custom database next time so I can play with Clachnacuddin.
  3. Civil Service Strollers 2021-2022 Slight improvement as far as points and goal difference, but rather disappointingly finished 5th again, part of a 4 way tie on 51 points between 4th and 7th place. Had a chance to claim 4th on the final day if we could have held on to a draw on the road but we gave up an 88th minute goal to squander that. League Table Probably not too surprising we didn't improve more, much of the team was turned over, we changed tactics and we were very young. Still, we were in first as late as week 15. Cups We were entered in the Betfred Cup this season, which starts with a group stage during what is basically preseason. Finished 4th of 5, only beating league mates Stranraer. Turned out to be a bad sign for them as they finished last in the league and lost on penalties to Kelty Hearts to be relegated. In the Wafer Cup we claimed our first League 1 scalp, knocking off East Fife in their house 1-0 in a game that we were the better team. No such luck in the second round, falling to Dundee 1-4. Slightly better performance in the Scottish Cup this season as we beat Kelty in our first game 3-1, but then fell to lower league Cumbernauld Colts in the next round 2-3. Key Players GK Graham Mackenzie deserves mention, he's been our starter in every league game thus far and really saves my defense plenty of times. Second in the league in saves. AM Robbie Shinnie was our player of the year and young player of the year. The just turned 19 year old we signed from Montrose led the team with 14 goals and added 4 assists. Plays on both the left and right sides. Should be our full time starter as an attacking inside forward on the left side next season. DC Ciaran Brian was our rock in the back line. Signed from Berwick, the 21 year old was a constant. Had occasional issues with his lack of first touch but usually didn't have to worry about him. Youth Intake Not much of not, best prospect is probably Keiran Dargo, a midfielder with some potential as a passer. Finances We actually made money, finishing about 50K on the plus side, largely from keeping the payroll down I think. Looking Ahead Hopefully some stability will get us into the playoffs next season. Thinking I need to find four new starters. A centerback partner for Brian, a striker to replace Muirhead (was far more inconsistent this season with a couple large scoring droughts) and a couple central midfielders. Badly need a playmaker and set piece taker.
  4. Civil Service Strollers 2020-2021 Good first season for us, after a 4 game losing streak to begin, we got things on track and were never in any danger. We were as high as 4th after week 17, then settled into 5th as there was a pretty clear gap between the top four and the rest of us. And we finished with a +1 goal difference. League Table We won our first round Tunnock's Wafer Cup on penalty kicks over Vale of Leithen, then fell in a tight contest to League 1 side Cove Rangers 1-2. We lost our first Scottish Cup match to lower league side Berwick 0-3, that may have been our most embarrassing match of the season. We played a 4-4-2 most of the season, very counter attacking in nature to begin, then gradually getting more aggressive as teams started giving us more respect. Cameron Muirhead was our leading scorer playing in a poacher role and often getting behind the defense. His 14 goals actually lead League 2 scorers. Michael Wardrope was signed on a free to put some teeth in our midfield, he chipped in 4 goals as well. And Welshman Alex Penny was our best defender, a physical beast for our level. Hoping to keep him around next season but he's not showing much interest in a new contest. Our youth intake brought in one player who I think can play a role in the future, DM Aiden Moore, who I think can develop into a decent anchorman. No issues financially yet, posted a 5K loss last season but still have an overall positive balance. Next season, hopefully we can move into the top 4 and make the playoffs. Lots of holes to fill, most importantly a secondary striker to feed Muirhead. And his lack of determination has me worried he'll fall off a cliff. The only player I'm totally happy with so far is Penny so a lot of turnover will be coming. Around Scotland Celtic won the Premiership by 14 over Rangers, who were 15 ahead of Hibernian with Aberdeen rounding out the European spots. Scotland advanced to the European Championship in 2020 but finished 4th in their group behind England, Poland and Czech Republic. Scotland is ranked 38th in the world. France beat Wales in the Euro final.
  5. Finally finished my first season in Scotland, 5th out of 10, I'll take it over my usual first season struggles.
  6. So far so good in Scotland. Lost our first 4 league games, but since then we've had 4 wins and a draw. Settled into a counter attacking 4-4-2 and I have a fast striker and winger that causing opposing teams serious problems. Strikers scoring and converting one on ones doesn't seem to be an issue so far this year.
  7. Civil Service Strollers - Scotland The match engine seems to be in pretty good shape, so time to get real and try to get Edinburgh their first Scottish championship since Heart of Midlothian in 1960. I got Civil Service up to the Scottish Championship a couple years ago, hopefully I can get further this time. My Profile Club Profile Club History Not thrilled with the club vision, they are expecting a mid-table finish. Seems unrealistic for a newly promoted side. The team has a lot of speed but the defense and central midfield are lacking.
  8. Giving Real Aviles a try in Spain. Mostly just a beta sim most likely, will be playing with Fraserburgh or Spartan in Scotland eventually.
  9. Probably need to go back further with the reload to get other teams. I know for England you have to go back to May 30 even though the promoted teams show up on June 24. In my little bit of loading looking at other nations, I've had Kelty, Brora and Berwick. Definitely going back to Scotland at some point.
  10. Well, with the beta out, looks like we end Serbia with a successful first season in the SuperLeague. Managed to finish in the top half, in 7 with 2 games to go until the playoffs. Getting into the top 5 to make Europa League probably out of reach. Time for the 2020 challenge.
  11. IMT Beograd 2023-2024 Breakthrough! A dominant season for us as we pretty much lead wire to wire to win the First League and promotion. Only 1 loss in our first 22 league games, got to to the promotion phase in a strong position and closed it out with 4 wins and a draw. The strongest defense in the league led the way, only allowing 27 goals in 37 games. Serbian Cup We even made some noise in the cup for once, beating one of the stronger teams in our league in Macva 1-0 and then lower league side Loznica 1-0 as well. Lost in the first round to SuperLeague side Napredak, but gave them a game at 1-2. Key Players Nikola Miric was our Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Signing of the Year. 10 assists and a 7.42 rating from the right fullback spot. Lazar Vujanic though, was named the First League Player of the Season though. Playing almost exclusively as a 10, he scored 16 goals and added 6 assists. Oddly though, he was only a substitute in the First League Team of the Season. After being the vice-captain this season, he'll be the captain for us next year. Nikola Sakic also enjoyed a great year playing as a box to box midfielder. 6 goals, 6 assists and in the First League Team of the Season. Branislav Dujakovic was also in the FLTS, a centerback I signed from Red Star on a free, was a rock in defense. Youth Intake Nothing too exciting with Novak Pusica being the best of the bunch. I did have one of last year's youths step up unexpectedly though as Marko Alimpic became my backup 10 at the end of the season and also became our youngest ever goalscorer. Finances Winning the league and some cup games helped, we are currently just under even. Our stadium needs expansion to comply with SuperLeague rules but we're putting it off a season, quite reasonably. We are also able to scout Eastern Europe now. Next Season Survive. I'm pretty happy with much of the team. Need 1 starter for my back 4 and need to find a striker that can contribute more as my starter only netted 6 and was often injured.
  12. That's why I keep trying Lancaster City, because I could see the pitch from the train my first time visiting England.
  13. IMT Beograd 2022-2023 More spinning our wheels. More comfortable than last season but only finished 9th. League Table We finished the preliminary stage in 10th, then went 3-3-1 in the relegation stage to come out on top of that. We had some good play but were just altogether too inconsistent throughout the season, especially on offense. No big slumps this year, no big runs, just hung out between 8 and 13 the entire season. We were bounced out of the Serbian Cup in the first game again, losing on penalty kicks to a lower division side. Key Players Lazar Vujanic played mostly at striker and netted 12 goals and 3 assists. Struggled to find a 10 behind him though and I think I'm going to try moving him into that role assuming I can find a striker. Nikola Miric, our right fullback, was our player of the season and young player as well. We were able to convince him to join us permanently next season. Lazar Tatic was our new goalkeeper, signed from Backa, he set a new team record for shutouts. Youth Intake Milentije Pavlovic is probably the best of the bunch, not quite sure what I'll do with him though. Probably ends up a backup at defensive midfield and/or fullback. As a whole, my youth players are actually progressing very well. Several are now backups and pressing for playing time. Branislav Raukovic in particular is really pushing for a place in the first team, I've used him as both attacking and defensive midfield and he always makes an impact. I also have a lot of bigger teams circling on my youngsters, so that's a good problem to have. I messed up last season and let Partizan pluck my young left fullback away for nothing, have to pay more attention so that doesn't happen again. Financially we're doing well, primarily because of new ownership throwing some money to clear out our debts. Despite our not really progressing yet, I'm enjoying this team, especially the young players. We need to get the offense going in order to progress. I was pretty happy with my 4-4-1-1 DM setup but I'm going to try pushing one or both of the central midfielders forward to see if that helps. I have some work to do with my central defenders too. My best one is upset that we didn't finish top half like I promised and has demanded a transfer. Nobody is looking particularly interested in him though so I'm likely looking at a season of him being angry and causing problems. My other options feel more suited as backups. Onward!
  14. Relegation playoff again but in first there with 6 games to go so looking safe. Losing 3 starters I really wanted back though so a bit of a rebuild coming. But for as much as I'm struggling I like this team.
