    FM19 - Slaving Away in Sofia

    Youth Intake 2018/19 First Intake for the game and we got very, very lucky. Three Potentially Great Midfielders, personal favourite is Tsvetan Makendzhiev Gets Forward Whenever Possible and Arrives late are a pair of great traits, especially given my usual Sole Striker philosophy which means it adds an extra option into the box for us to work with. Thinking of transitioning into a Shadow Striker instead of an Advanced Playmaker and hoping his traits rub off in the form of goals. Krastev is your more traditional, AMC Donchev is just a ball-winner, but you need one from time-to-time and he can definitely put in a shift.

    Winter Break Update Positive end to the first half of the season. Tight game, but we were also never really in it. Sounds odd when I say it like that but genuine chances for us to score were limited in comparison to the high percentage ones they concocted to grab their three goals. Again, a slight class above us which is just a slight bump on the bridge we have to overcome in the coming seasons. Quite happy to get over Ludogorets though, into the Semi-Finals and maybe we can retain our Bulgarian Cup after winning it last year irl. Top end of the table is even more crammed than it was in the last update, exception re Vereya who have slipped massively and opened up the race for 6th. Given the fact CSKA dominate us but are only 5 points ahead, we could strike if they manage to slip up vs other opponents and we find a way to fluke a result in the Championship rounds... Not out of 1st just yet, it's just tricky. Stergiakis with some insane development <3
  4. Transfers in for the season. Two permanent ones in regens in the Serie D/E that I thought had high potential. Pietro Fontanive Already turning out for the U19 Italy Side, where I first saw him and realised he was a steal. Davide Bernardi Offers a ton of creativity out on the right flank and a great hand for the division already. Upgrading facilities and coaching to get him to kick on will be pivotal. Steel to the backline and some more up front, the biggest signing though is Ravaglia. Should not be playing this far down, and definitely not for free. Chievo are idiots and he could practically keep us up himself if he wanted. With the quality around him though, we can definitely push at a back-to-back promotion.

    Nice work in Europe so far solid results vs City and Basel. Amazing comeback in the Europa.
  6. Admittedly while doing the narrative I've been through S1, and I was going to split them into actual updates but Laziness has taken root. A man down in the playoffs and we still dominated the match, straight into Serie C and it'll take some savvy signings to make a survivable side.

    FM19 - Slaving Away in Sofia

    Heading towards the end of November, Winter Break looming ever so slightly in the distance. A month of incredibly tight football, we don't win or lose by much and while eeking out some more solid wins would be good for the purposes of Goal Difference, at least we're doing what's required and making a strong showing in the league. Poor Defence, but the 2nd best attack in the league behind the League Leaders in CSKA. Match against them in 3-4 weeks where they come the Slavia and it could have a massive impact on the table and give us some momentum to go top of the pile. Teams who'll be contesting the Championship round also look locked in already despite the fact it's November. Top 6 sides out of 26 games go H2H in the back-end of the season and the gap between 6th and 7th is already massive. Ivanov leading the way, playing a hand in 11/24 goals we've scored. Hopefully others around him can lessen the load as they develop.
  8. He wanders the city at night. Walking through the streets he finds a peaceful reprieve from the chaos of Telleus. 7 months in and he’s learned. He’s struggled every day, but somehow, some way he’s frauded his way through. Not the greatest student, nor the most loyal disciple. His return to the world of football draws closer with each passing day. At least that’s what Emma, the secretary tells him as he hands over his cheques. “Just a few more months of teaching and you’ll reach the Blue Emperor level, one step on your way to the glory of fraudulence.” Blue Emperor, to Turquoise King and then maybe hopefully, the Ocean Fraud. “Mr. Fuller?” He takes a swig of his Budweiser, the last hold he has on his Americanism as he turns his head towards a middle aged man, surrounded by some very intimidating guards in suits. “You’re looking for the bald American over at the hostel.” The laugh echoes through the quiet street but there is no humour to it. "Very funny Mr.Fuller, very funny." The man says before he clicks his fingers. The guards begin to move towards him and despite the cold weather, a bead of sweat runs down his face. “Alright, alright, alright. What do you want?” He concedes, edging away from the advancing group, ready to turn tail and run into the night if need be. "That's better." The man says and the guards stop moving once again." “I represent a small club, in a very big city Mr. Fuller.” The man tells him. “And we’re looking for the man to make that small club the biggest. Would you like to give it a try?” His break has finally arrived, and he may be terrified of what he's getting himself into, of the man in front of him but who knows if it'll ever come again? “And what city is that?”

    Out of curiosity, how's Kristian Dobrev doing in yours? Congrats on Europe by the way, making the groups is huge in kicking forward

    Solid start. The Dunav loss was an anomaly. We dominated the game yet we lost by four goals, every counter turned into a goal against us and yet we spent nearly the entire match camped in their half. CSKA on the other hand was merely a matter of being outclassed by a stronger side. It's been a mix of strong and weak sides so the position we're in is a pretty perfect reflection of our class and what I was saying in the preview. That we're a strong mid-table side capable of overachieving with the right system in place. Ludogorets and Levski coming up will be interesting tests.

    Crashed out of Europe earlier than we would have liked. Albeit Atromitos was a difficult draw and a massive step up from KuPS. We took a lead away but were perhaps too passive at home. Opted to control the game rather than attack and when they began to lead on away goals we got caught out again chasing a winner. Tactics 4-1-4-1 Assymetric AML 4-1-2-3 Attacking 4-1-2-3 Control The Assymetric was what gave us a strong result away to Atromitos, let down by the lack of a Raumdeuter which will be my immediate priority once we acquire enough funds, or find a loan/free that can slot into the side. The 4-1-2-3 Control has lost out both times it's been tested. Albeit as seen in the Atromitos game we played well, controlled that game and more than matched a superior side. There's something in it that isn't quite clicking and I'm as likely to scrap it as I am to make the required changes. A lot of tinkering at this stage, loving the new tactics system so curious to see what limits I can push it to.

    Quick Look at the Squad The side has some solid prospects with which I could conceivably build around. I'm very interested in Kyuchukov but he has a ton of deficiencies that need to be ironed out if I could hope to ever get anything out of him. So the best prospect we have is Andrea Hristov Tidy Centre Back easily capable of playing any role required whether that be more of a no-nonsense sort or if I want to have some build-up from the back. Meanwhile the clubs best player right now is Galin Ivanov. Versatile Attacking Midfielder, and depending on my tactic he can be playing anywhere, being used left, right or centrally as the season's started and tactics are refined. All in all, it's a solid mid-table squad that can overachieve but is a far cry from an immediate contender. It's up to me to put the building blocks in place. The players have been nerfed a bit more than they were in previous FMs or rather I'm lacking a lot of 5* prospects which came in previous years. It's still a very good side, but it should be all the more challenging this year.
  14. Three times this exact save has been attempted, three times I have been an inch away from completion only for a bug to cripple the Bulgarian League and end me at the worst possible moment. FM19 is released and this I'm praying this is finally the one. So who should take over the reins for my 4th Attempt at this in the last 18 months? "John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar... with a pencil, with a ****ing pencil." John Wick Just add a little lethal intensity and a history of lost pets. The last thread we had with this I said it was the final attempt but I'm not leaving until it's done and I haven't been able to complete all of my goals at the same time. Some I've been able to achieve independently, but I want to do everything at once. Goals of the Save - Win the Champions League - Make Bulgaria the #1 League in Europe - Win the World Cup with Bulgaria Other miniature goals will pop up along the way. For example, guiding a player to being the European Golden Boy, or other awards such as the Golden Boot, Ballon D'or etc; but at the heart of it is making Bulgaria and Slavia the most dominant footballing sides on the planet. Dreaming big, as always.
