Kalmar AIK FK - First Season (2008)
Just finished my first season with AIK Kalmar (Sweden) !
It didn't take long because they're just 22 games in the season.
The results :
League table : champs !!
Second Division Player Stats
My best player : Robert Karlssont
My best striker : Boubacar BaldÃ©
Finances (ouch !)
Finishing first, we've won promotion to the Swedish Fist Division (3rd level in Sweden).
AIK Kalmar was already a strong team for the 4th level of swedish football. The stadium capacity is 9795 !!
The 20kâ‚¬ wage budget allowed me to buy above average players for this level.
My two defeats took place :
- during the fan day, at home, against Laholm (who finished fifth)...
- at home again, 2 games before the end, in a capital game vs Limhamn. This game could have make us champs. We lost so that we had to battle until the last match.
I was surprised we didn't play any swedish cup.
Now, I'm preparing for the next step : the First Division.
The board long term expectations are to establish the team in the Fist Division Elite (2nd level in Sweden) in 5 years. I hope I'll be in the Premier Divison by this time !!!
