  1. No more poole town for me ... next season 1 draw, 11 losses, just cant get the team firing again, we are dead cert to get relegated... may try again somewhere else.
  2. Poole Town 2021 / 2022 Summary My first season was, on the pitch, much more sucessful than anyone would have expected. We were flirting with the play - offs for the whole season, and could have made it until the last day should results have gone our way. Given that we were expected to finish 24th, Our 14 - man squad held on valiantly. I even managed to win manager of the season! However, off the pitch, things are not quite as rosy. we have a £1.2 million loan to pay for a new stadium - as our current one is far off the standard required for the National League South. We pay £10k a month for the next 10 years, but thankfully our balance is not negative yet. Youth Intake These three will be in and around the first teqam from the get go.

  3. Hi all, I have made a custom file for Montserrat because i thought it would be cool. They are also one of 3 teams with a youth rating of 1 !!! in the editor, so i thought this could be like an alternative San Marino Challenge, if people want to play it that way. I have added; League of 10 teams + 3 spare Cup Logos (pack : https://www.mediafire.com/file/2pq37zog7c8hltw/msr.rar/file) Ingame kits Media Awards Cities It's kind of loosely based on reality, but made playable. https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=2601099245 It's in a collection, I highly reccomend using all of it + dodgee gamer collection + other custom leagues in the region.
  4. Pezzolato leaves I think its a pretty good deal though, would have likely lost him next season anyway + its a pro club so less likely he leaves on a free
  5. I’m going to do yearly updates from now on, unless something particularly interesting happens. Season 2021 / 2022 Club Summary We won the league. We were much better this season, changing to a 4-5-1 and utilising Moroni in his favoured AMC role. Our young core of players is now really staring to improve, we will be able to have a good crack at Serie D next year. I also released a lot of youth players that will never be good enough, freeing up wage budget and helping financially. Competitons Best Players Pezzolato, ST(C) – Main striker and top scorer with 23 in 25 starts. Was intending to leave but after a lack of interest in January we were able to sign him to a new 2-year deal. Club record appearance and goal holder. Traversari, D(C) – Exceptional centre-half. Was rated as a Serie D player long before the season started – rejected an offer from Siena. Would not sign a new contract, tried to move on in January for a sell on clause / arrange friendly / loan back but no takers so he will leave at end of contract. Towards the end of the season, I dropped him so Allessandro Eretta 1A could get some minutes. Moroni, AM(C) - Excellent this season after an indifferent last season. Was moved from M/AM(L) to AM(C), it’s excellent to have his pace coming from deep. Honourable Mentions Gorzegno, D(C), https://ibb.co/k4SG0gW Scored 7 goals and got 3 assists this season, key at set pieces both big man at corners and chucking in the long throws. Club captain. Unfortunately, he suffered a broken ankle due to an awful challenge on him in the penultimate game - has now decided to retire. Colombo, GK , https://ibb.co/VmQ2GLf Only played 3 games at the end of the season, but he will be key next season and it is important that the San Marino no.1 gets games (he was a free agent when signed) Squad Squad sorted by minutes played Youth Intake Misc They are still trying to find a new stadium, it says it will be ~2800 capacity. Junior coaching increased to Average National Team Summary We performed above my expectations in the WC quals, as we manged to do the double over Azerbaijan. Competitions Most talented Sammarinese players Notable youth products Brunel, M(L) – Most promising youth product outside of A.D.S.V., nailed-on starter for the national team. It’s funny that the only competitive football he has ever played is international matches. Misc Our next nations league group.
  6. End of season 2020 / 2021 We’ve played two more league games – at least we won one. All of Ascani’s 4 goals have come in games we have lost. 2 games to go. We have a slight advantage but are very inconsistent at the moment. Oh dear. We were awful. Now we NEED our last match, and hope Savignanese (FC) drop points. Our goal difference counts for nothing, 2nd sort is games between teams. Theirs is a week after due to there being 15 teams – we wont know till a week after our last game – not ideal. Promoted or not, I need to have a big look at the tactics alongside the inevitable squad overhaul. That’s not helping!! It’s us or Savignanese (FC) Here’s for hoping well still be in it by this point Well that’s that. Threw everything we could at them for 90 minutes but it still wasn’t enough. To be honest, we were so bad in large parts of the second half of the season I don’t feel like we have been robbed – we clearly threw it away. Of course, I should have adapted the tactics better as when teams started to be wise to our brand of “Route one counter-attack” football, we really struggled. Plan for next season; · I hope I can develop a more sustainable set of tactics – more flexible and more reliable. · Our players are developing and some players who are actually capable of this level now want to join (albeit I can’t afford 95% of them)- helping in our push for the title next season. · However – the tiny wage allowance is still a large problem, especially when I still have to pay all my youth players £25 or £45 per week to keep them on a contract, when first teamers rarely earn more than £60. I wish I didn’t sign the whole intake, might try and release some / sign to non-contract deals. · I’m going to try and bring in more loans and decrease coaching staff to help financially – but the ones I do have will cost less with renewed contracts than similar staff if I was bringing them in new. · Also, in a way, it’s kind of good we didn’t because winning the league every year is boring. Also another year to develop, making it more likely we stay up in Serie D when we get there, as we have a very young but developing core. · The San Marino Academy has one of the highest youth recruitment ratings in the game (18) so I should keep an eye on them (It starts like this, not edited) The board’s “master-plan” I feel like those two don’t go hand in hand when our average attendance is less than 20% of capacity…. ?????? Checked the editor and the stadium I gave them is definitely in Acquaviva (club matches stadium) – but when I check it in game it says its Acquaviva Picena. Maybe editor data needs updating. Oh well. Its funny.
  7. March WC Qualifiers Yeah, not our best games ever. This is more of a long-term goal, methinks. The Portugal game was the worst defeat I have ever had on FM (yet, lol) - Ronaldo scored 5. Nice to know well get a full stadium to see us get battered by europe's elite. There are quite a few newgens coming through at a standard high enough for the squad and with decent potential - some of the players in the youth intake literally couldn't sign youth contracts fast enough to be involved. But I'm sure we will see more of these guys in the future.
  8. Youth / Run - In update Looking forward to this! Ha Ha Ha, yeah he just has to walk up the road. I will sign all of them, because the more Sammarinese players = better San Marino NT Another aggressive, brave centre half. Likely a captain not so far in the future AMC who I really like the look of, unfortunately we don’t play that position So I did make him captain on his debut – gave away a penalty and got sent off – could have even cost us the title. But, the narrative. Run - In We got found out. we ran out of steam. But can we hold on? It's going down to the wire. We play 11th, 5th, 13th They play 7th, 9th, 4th, 15th - finishing 6 days later. wish us luck.
  9. 2020 / 2021 Mid - Season Update Our group for World Cup 2022 qualification. Give us mercy. Well, I think you could say that was a good start. So far, the club has NEVER lost a competitive game. I’ve tried to open up the tactics last few months and it seems to be working. That puts us in this position. Not bad! Pezzolato our best player this season. 15 goals and 2 assists in 14 games as a poacher/advanced forward. (I use Zealand’s face pack for regens) Casali managing to keep senior international Matteo Moroni out of the team. Playing well on the left wing. Traversari absolutely incredible. Already rated as a Serie D (league above) centre half and rapidly improving. With 18 aggression and 18 bravery not sure if he should be a footballer or MMA fighter. Players that have appeared for us, sorted by average rating. Aimi is best I have seen for a goalkeeper. 8 clean sheets in 14 games.
  10. Pre - Season and International Update Pre - Season Pre-Season was ok. We were better at the end of it – against Alfonsine, all 3 goals came after 90 minutes. However, they are a team recently relegated to our level, so its pretty good. So after pre-season, we are expected to be on the verge of relegation (there are two spots). Hopefully we get some of that luck the national team has been getting recently. Cesarini is Sammarinese, so I suppose its good to have Sammarinese players in leadership positions. The contracts we can offer are often at best ¼ of those that teams in our league can offer, but we will manage. Not too many of our players are rated for this level either. I suppose at this point, ironically, it would be best to have no Sammarinese first teamers so we don’t lose them for internationals (will happen until Serie A?) – but I will try to use / develop some of the better ones. International So, as Liechtenstein beat Gibraltar 5-0 (!!!), if we manage to beat Gibraltar, we will go through. The fans are on their way in, the banners are out, what a game it is going to be at the San Marino Stadium. Golnucci smacks home the opener! 20 mins. The fans know what that means! Dolcini gave away a penalty, can Benedettini save? He’s gone the wrong way, and as it stands, Liechtenstein are through. 40 mins. Palazzi sends one into the back of the net! Pandemonium at the San Marino stadium!!! Andy Selva’s got his shirt off!!! 48 mins. Berardi off 87 mins – can we hold on? The boys did it!!! The greatest day in the history of the national team! (so far :) ) Confirmation of our promotion I feel very lucky in the group we got, every single one of those teams in the other D-group is miles better than the ones in our group – next NL campaign is going to be tough. Its going to be a step up, but well try our best. A very successful 2020 for the national side!
  11. 4 from 2 not bad! - top of the group as it stands.
  12. Wow! what a performance, and what a way to start my carrer as San Marino manager!
