  1. Stuck with a team that doesn't really play to my style, which is what the January window will be all about with a solid rebuild in mind to give us a more attacking edge. Really mixed on Wilson atm, fires far too infrequently to really be trusted up top. Did go up a gear the last few games though and we demolished Christmas week and started the new year in a great mood. Plotting a Top 10 Finish and Next Year will hoepfully be the start of a more aggressive assault on the League and FA Cup. Transfers in, Nyambe is an old favorite from FM16 and going to try and coax all that once glorious potential out of him. I'm transitioning my Front 3/4 into a much more lethal unit, will take 1/2 seasons to fully reach fruition though.
  2. Great finish to the Year. You might think CL to be a step too far, but on the flipside that money will definitely be useful for you if you can sneak into the Groups
  3. Just realised a minor mistake, using a profile so I accidentally kept myself as Australian. I only know English though so still all good?

    Serenading Sofia - The Final Attempt

    I was never a great player. The sort to turn the game on its head, or the type to conjure the goal from nowhere that was needed to save the game. I was the grafter in midfield, the one that got the ball back and ran his legs off to make sure he could never be accused of giving anything less than his all. With all this being said, I don’t really know what set things off between Inzaghi and I. Maybe I didn’t like how he’d played throughout his career. Maybe I just didn’t like him as a person. I respected him and his accomplishments, he’s one of the greatest strikers in Italy’s history after all. There was just something though, something I couldn’t quite put my finger on, that made me want nothing less than to utterly destroy him on the football field. Olimpico, the field of dreams. Dreams of qualification already secured but here we could push ourselves even further and finish atop of Group G. A definitive statement of our future intentions. The tensions between the two of us is no lesser than it was on opening day. A desire to get off to a good start now replaced with a desire to simply realise who between the two of us is better. The simplest desires though, are often the most intense. And you’re probably thinking I couldn’t walk into Italy and expect a positive result, but I honestly believed we had a chance. It’s what made the first nine minutes so depressing. A horror start utterly ruined us. Some small changes were made and we salvaged a measure of dignity but we flunked big time and it was so disappointing to watch. We absolutely strolled to 2nd place courtesy of a poor Maribor and Viktoria Plzen. I was always expecting to get out of the group but it should have been at least a little closer. Positive sign that it wasn't though. Shakhtar will be a massive test after the Lazio debacle. Curious to see where we stand.

    Yeah Kun's going to be a bit of a hassle, definitely interested in coming back but Leeds want massive amounts for him which is irritating. I was already planning to use him next year hahaha

    Serenading Sofia - The Final Attempt

    Minor Hiccup with one of the save files and I lost my November chapter, I want to keep the next Lazio vs Slavia game for a separate post so you won't see the Group Standings, but you'll see how we've performed in the group since. Heading into the Winter Break Getting thrown out of the cup was apparently a blessing in disguise, reduced any potential games so we could focus on keeping the team fit and we flourished over the period. A definite advantage also came in the last minute signing of Ivalyo Klimentov He signed after the EL registration window so his recent development and upturn in form has been really useful in having a First League Only player to rotate the midfield around. What does our form mean? We've put ourselves in a great position. Whether its purely us strengthening or Ludo/CSKA declining I'm not sure, but we're a definite chance of Champions League Football this year. Keeping with the subject of Europe Really easy to navigate group so far. The next match vs ourselves and Lazio is essentially about who comes 1st in the group, R32 Qualification essentially guaranteed.

    Serenading Sofia - The Final Attempt

    So now that we've got some money in the bank from Europa League Qualification I've decided to prepare a list of the best Bulgarian Prospects and the players that I'm looking to definitely add to the squad over the next 1-3 seasons. Wynter's Brilliant Bulgarians Kristian Dobrev I'm looking at a 4-3-3 formation exclusively with this guy in mind, probably the best Bulgarian talent who starts in Bulgaria in the game. At least from a potential perspective. Kun Temenuzhkov Long-Term signing because we definitely won't have the funds to pull it off for a long-time barring some miracle. Heir Apparent to Berbatov and could be one of the best strikers in the game. Maybe a loan next year, if things work out well. Aleksandar Ivanov No great RWBs in the Bulgarian Player Pool at the moment. This guy has everything I want in a Wing Back though. Hoping to get him in ASAP and push his development to the next level. Mateo Stamatov Instant upgrade out left, just a matter of having the right funds. The 4 also represent the key areas of our squad I anticipate will need improvement if we really want to challenge in Europe. RWB and LWB are my biggest weakness and Filipov isn't a natural finisher, especially when compared to these two. Ties in with my ideal of a strong Bulgarian core and reflects 4 players that could definitely be part of a competitive CL team with the right tools and attention.

    Domestically things are beginning to spiral a little, we crashed out of the cup early and a fire start has quickly evaporated as we begin to struggle in the league. A combination of not enough squad depth and a mass deluge of games with Europe Factored in, raising that co-efficient and dropping the amount of games we'll have to play is an immediate priority. Luckily no-ones raced out early, plenty of time to get our **** together.

    Serenading Sofia - The Final Attempt

    Europa League Group Stage - Game 1 Slavia Sofia vs Lazio The handshake at the dugout is cold, the atmosphere between the two men is tense and both sides enter the field of play with something to prove. First blood is drawn on the cusp of half-time, domination on the half of the Bulgarians bears fruit as Ivalyo Dimitrov continues to flourish under his latest manager. The Slavia fans within the stadium are beside themselves, urging their heroes on as they enter the tunnels at half time. Lazio is far from done though and they emerge with inspired play, bullying the Bulgarians back into their own half as they try desperately to retake the game. Slavia meanwhile try desperately to hold on. Something has to give and in the 88th minute it does. 1-1 We'll settle this in the Olimpico Transfers Dimitar Filipov A reward from the board for securing the Europa League Group Stages, came in and asked for them to pick him up. They were more than happy to oblige. If I can raise that finishing attribute I might have one of the most lethal strikers in the game within a couple of seasons.

    "I'll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them. Love it." Pre-Game Conference Slavia Sofia vs Lazio "Fillipo, Price set headlines in the knockout rounds by claiming his side could beat yours, what are your thoughts on matching up against Slavia Sofia tomorrow night?" The man who asks the question is short in stature, his brown hair in disarray from days of travel but the question he asks sends ripples through the attended crowd. "I think Price was just trying to motivate his troops." Inzaghi replied. "And it's worked wonders given the fact they're here in the group stages, it's a phenomenal achievement by him and a great step forward for Football in Bulgaria." "Do you think his statement has any actual merit though?" The manager laughs at the question, as do some of the journalists within the conference. "At the end of the day, it's 11 v 11 so it's not impossible. On the whole though our squad is better prepared, the quality of players we possess dwarfs theirs by quite a bit and 9 times out of 10 Slavia would be lucky to escape with little more than a hiding. We'll see if his words have any weight tomorrow night." The rest of conference passes by with little incident but those words reach the Bulgarian Camp quickly and those words are enough to light the first feud in Price's story.
