  1. I have noticed that.. He is slightly immense
  2. Oh, looks like the gang is back together (again :))
  3. So. End of the 2020/21 season in Bundesliga.2. Its gone well. 28 games unbeaten in the league, and only 1 defeat in all competitions since September, and that was to a Robert Lewandowski led Bayern Munich in the Pokal Quarter Finals. Given the fact that we virtually ran away with the league, it allowed us to get on the road to making signings in preparation for the Bundesliga. In position order, the new signings are. Goalkeeper Axel Werner (Arg) - More than happy to sign for the club as a backup to Ramos, however, if between the end of the season, and the start of next, Ramos attracts any interest, Werner can step up. Also coming in, is 17 year old Brazilian youngster, Arlen Cleyton. Defenders With having 2 centre backs on loan, this is an area we needed to strengthen. Adam Ben Lamin (Swe) A signing for the future, due to his ability to play anywhere across the back. He joins for a fee which will eventually reach £1m. Elio Capradossi (Ita) A very solid player, with over 100 appearances in the Italian leagues. Comes in on a free. Serhiy Kryvtsov (Ukr) With nearly 200 appearances in the Ukrainian top flight, as well as continental and international experience, Kryvtsov has the chance to be a massive signing for us. His experience will put him into the reckoning, and his leadership should make him a fantastic choice to lead the back 4. He joins on a free, which allows us to offer slightly higher wages to bring him to Germany. A few youngsters also coming in (this is a trend all across the positions for us). Midfielders We were unable to get James Garner for another season, as his form and development over the last 2 years means that Manchester United want to use him, However, Grady Diangana and Emile Smith Rowe agreed stays for another season. Coming in to replace Garner, is Argentinian/Italian, Emanuel Cecchini, who spent last season in Spain at Malaga, having been on loan for most of his time there. He is a near like for like replacement for the young Englishman, but he is slightly poorer in the air, joining at the end of his contract in Spain. ] Also coming in, was a second midfielder in the likeness of Garner, and, at 26 years old, has over 250 appearances to his name in the English leagues. Like most of the signings so far, he comes on a free. Another product of the English leagues moves across to Germany, bringing with him, 3 Nigeria caps, and the willingness to play as a backup (to Grischa Promel) The final central midfielder to join, is Fabio Maistro, the Italian coming from Lazio. Attackers There are 2 attacking minded wingers/strikers coming in on free transfers. The first has been on loan with us this season, which has been disrupted through injury. He comes in as a backup. The second is a big plus for me, bringing physicality and pace, something which has been missing up front (Arezo and Costa are quick, but not physical, and Weydandt is the opposite) As well as that, he is a former German U21 international, and appears highly thought of by my scouting team. At this time, not a lot more will be coming in, but, if a move should go out, this will change.
  4. I've found it, but as its unlisted, I'm just waiting for Chilled Moose to OK me sharing it.
  5. A few small signings coming in for me at Karlsruhe, mainly as a result of me going through U20 and 21 teams. Georgian youngster, Goga Kupatadze, probably end up playing as a sitting midfielder for me. Ghanaian youngster James Antwi (who has Dutch heritage), coming in as a long term full back prospect. May need a bit more pace work. Brazilian right back, Kley Gama, who is better than my current right back. Hes on loan until June having been spotted in the Brazilian U20s.
  6. Right, Been a little bit of time since my last update, mainly due to a lot of stuff going on in 'real life'.. Made it to the winter break, top of Bundesliga.2, having only lost 2 games. Since those defeats, we've won 10 out of the 12 fixtures. Goals are coming from all over the team, with Lundemo scoring some world class free kicks, also, Rui Costa and Emile Smith Rowe are the top scorers in the division, with 9 and 8 goals each. Claudio Ramos has 11 clean sheets already, and with the exception of Mavropanos, who is currently out injured for about 6 weeks, the squad is pretty much regular and fit. As I mentioned previously, James Garner, on loan from Manchester United, has been the engine room of the team, with 4 assists and a goal, however, his movement in the middle of the pitch is what has allowed everything else to tick along. Marius Lundemo has been the other half of the central midfield partnership, and he has been outstanding, dictating play with Garner. His impact has been that great, that he has signed a new contract since he joined, which removes the minimum fee release clause from his deal. We are expecting one signing to come in over the winter period, and that is young Uruguayan striker, Matias Arezo.
  7. I'm in the 20/21 season, so 2nd season. Doing this stuff the wrong way round for me. Not got as many youngsters floating around as I'd normally have, but I do have 2 16 year olds that will break into the first team pretty soon.
  8. Safe to say, things are going well Oh, and Marius Lundemo only scores bangers.
  9. Just scored perhaps my two favourite goals from this save so far. The guy assisting them is my 'hard man' midfielder, who does all the sweeping up for the playmakers
  10. Playing him as DLP on the right side of central midfield. Got an 'enforcer' behind him, and another runner alongside.
  11. Yeah, its one of the things that is easier this time round in the game, a lot of English youngsters are more willing to move abroad for game time if its available, the same as real life. Garner has been outstanding for me over the last season (missed a couple of games due to suspension, and thats it), and he now has me as favoured staff, so, if we were to get promoted, he'd be at the top of the list of players to attempt and sign.
  12. There is a video that has been done by Chilled Moose that explains it, I'll link it when I find it. ------------------- The first few games of the season allowed for some bedding in, however, the loss to Ingolstadt at the end of the month was disappointing. Markus Dreyer, who was part of our youth intake last season, went to Bayer Leverkusen for a fee that will reach £2.5m, as well as having a sellon clause. Further departures were Marco Djuricin (Wehen Wiesbaden), Marvin Pourie (Yeni Malatyaspor) and Babacar Gueye (Nurnberg) and David Pison (Osnabruck), bringing in another £1m in fees. An incident in the 1-1 draw with Darmstadt along with a disagreement with the player afterwards, highlighted the need to strengthen the left side of defence. A quick look through our scouted player lists, and Inácio Santos (Inácio) joined us from FC Porto for a fee of £425000. A day later, he was joined at the club by another arrival from Portugal, as 24 year old Portuguese striker Rui Costa arrived for £650000. He can play the role I want a first choice striker to play, and also provides an excellent foil for Weydandt when I need to switch things up. The meeting with Nurnberg in the middle of August saw us lose Rolando Aarons for 3 months with a torn calf muscle. It took just over a week for a replacement winger to arrive, with Emile Smith Rowe joining from Arsenal for the season, and Grady Diangana joining for the season from West Ham. That would allow Aarons to recover properly, and at the same time, would put pressure on the right wing with Diangana arriving. Deadline day also saw us sign another full back, this time former Manchester United youngster, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, and he went out on loan on the same afternoon to Sandhausen, staying in Germany and Bundesliga.2
