    Finally able to read all movements in France from us, Hakan frauds... @Fer Fuchs Ake Good luck with the new fraudulous Aubagne project. Like the gifs lol @smp20 Also a complete twist in the Giuly story. Completely unexpected. Bonne chance avec AG Caen (they have a very modern badge I must say) @Benjoe Steadied the ship with a good mid-table finish. Curious where the croissant tactic can take you. The rise can begin! @wynter The extended highlights are indeed fenominal… and painful... Quality at this level for sure @BoxToBox and @Bartrcm Both of your saves keep going very fluently. Those results are unbelievable and a tycoon takeover… what a fraud! @Deisler26 Brilliant promotion with Chateaubriant! Especially since you could keep all those B teams behind in the ranking. With the Bastia prospect… it's your choice. Think about how Hakan would fraud this offer @shaunvamos Congratulations on the promotion!!! @noikeee Don't give up with TA Rennes. Not all of us can climb the ladder that quickly. Patience will be rewarded tremendously @Vélodrome Welcome to this fraudulous challenge. Good luck with Toulouse Rodéo @MarcxD Superb that you returned to the thread. On the up with Drancy again! Bonne chance et un progrès positive with the challenge to all of you!

    Bienvenue dans le Nord November 20th, 2017 (mid season) In our second National 3 season one could say that we are repeating history. Once again ups and downs with 4 wins out of 13. Putting the team just below mid-table but above expectations (season preview: 12th - odds 80-1). It feels a bit better though since I'm confident we can avoid the 3 bottom positions and there is the fact that we get during the january window some extra youngsters we can register. If we can keep the rest of the squad together this means extra addition. Biggest problems are still up front. We lack a real striker so these positions and quality has to come from the youngsters. A bit of a gamble if one of those guys we lift the team results. Till then we can continue the current process. Maybe we also need to replace some older players at the end of the season again. Which will drop the avarege age once again and our number of players aged 20+ as well. Nevertheless a decent progress. In the Coupe de France we went out in the 8th round after a hard fought 2-3 loss against Locminé. The match also was part of our disapointing 6 game run without a win. It hasn't been our favourite competition so far… Other than last season all players still want to stay. But of course, due to having non-contracts a decent interest can move them out of the club. It's not ideal at all. On other fronts not much to mention. I'm happy that some higher division clubs are interested in my services. A promising sign for my career. Tourcoing, la créative, on y va!

    Bienvenue dans le Nord June 1st, 2017 (End of Season) Well, looking at the table everything seems ok (general season review). But especially the 2nd half of the season was exhausting. Due to the injuries up front and thin covered back positions we had to play a lot of games with players out of position. To compensate this we ended with a very unusual 4-2-2-2 formation but we managed to finish mid-table. Which is very, very good given the quality of the available players. Player wise - season stats - the better performances came from strikers Arnaud Despres (13 goals) and Charly Kiaku (15 goals) but both will leave us. Another important player was Matthieu Debisschop. Despite his age I saw him grow in performances when I started to play him as a deeplying playmaker. I'm very happy that he decided to stay with the club. During the season he was't convinced about staying at the club but it's massive news. Maybe it has helped that he was voted the fans player of the year. Jérôme Kisonga contributed from the right back position with 7 assists and stays as well. Younger players who got a lot of playing time were Grégory Moret (MC/AMC), Jean Mbassi (GK), Olivier Lavie (DM) and Ruben Debisschop (MC/AMRC). Hopefully they grow a bit further heading into next season. Going forward to next season we lose 3 of the better and experienced players which means that we will now only have 7 players aged 20+ I was able to extend my contract for another season and job security is at 62%. I have realistic ambitions though. Since we don't have any quality (or natural strikers) up front, staying up is all we try to do. Also there's only 1 player from the youth batch having its 16th birthday on time before the registration slot closes. This means a small, small number of players to complete the mission. Financially we are in the red 41.000€. France is 11th at the world ranking but is heading comfortably to the World Cup. Tourcoing, la créative, on y va!

    His height is indeed something that worries me as well. Currently I'm using him as a DM in my U19's. If he gets familiar with that position I can maybe use him as an anchor man or pure defensive midfielder.

    Bienvenue dans le Nord March 1st, 2017 (Youth Intake) Le moment suprème pour notre equipe et notre future. Well, of course I will sign all of them. None of them really stands out but when they turn 16 chances to play will pass by for most of them. Certainly the youngsters on positions where we currently lack players (central midfielders and strikers) will play quick after their birthdays. I never had a player with a dual Basque nationality. Probably BoxToBox frauded some people in the club... The 3 players with most potential: – Roger Koné – Pierre Delplanque – Jérôme Leroy In the competition we are still 4 points above the play-out place. But since Despres fell out with his long-term injury we are finding it difficult to score goals. My other striker, Charly Kiaku, isn't happy with me as manager and dislikes me. Of course he leaves us at the end of the season but since he's our only available striker I do have to put the fraud on the field for that reason. Nevertheless I will kick him out with a big smile on my face when the season is over. The ship isn't steady at all but I hope we can keep our heads above the water. Tourcoing, la créative, on y va!

    An USF Tourcoing game half December. Spectacular is the least you can say! If I could upload the goals you will see the quality of football at this level But only 2 weeks later (begin january) a serious blow. Our top scorer (13 goals) out for the rest of the season @Deisler26 You stayed up, that's the most important. Building process can continue with your very young squad. Petit and Girault look like adding important quality. By the way, brilliant stuff with the Hakan update! @smp20 Hopefully you bypassed that crash. I was looking forward to the partnership between Bastia and Furiani/Agliani after all that family misery @noikeee Steady progress. The age of your players is pretty ideal to include the new youngsters step by step. @BoxToBox Incredible performance! @After Familiar feelings in my save... @Benjoe Wow, only predicted to finish 10th? That 10 out of 15 points alone looks like a serious mountain to climb

    Bienvenue dans le Nord November 16th, 2016 (mid season) Well, it has been a bit of a bumpy ride, my first half National 3 season at the helm in Tourcoing. I'm happy that we are above our predicted finish but at the same time we're far from being safe. We will bypass the automatic relegation spots but the play-out is still a very realistic chance. In that way a bit of mixed feelings. Results are pretty simple to explain. Once we concede a goal, we drop points. Our wins on the other handwere deserved and clear. Every single of them without conceding a goal. In the Coupe de France we went out in the 8th round after a win against Libourne (5-1), followed by a loss against Jura-Sud (0-2 - team in the National 2) I'm happy that I was able to keep every player but at the moment no one with a contract wants to stay (not mentioning "extending" because I only can handout non-contracts). One of those is striker Despres who already scored 11 league goals. If we can stay up we probably have to do it with other and youngster players next season and that will be a huge task. The thought on that is already a bit of a worry :-/ Tactical wise I generally went for a simple 4-4-2 formation but I already tried this in various forms (diamond, flat, high wingers,…). It's a bit hoping to get the best combinations between fraudulous bad players on that front. Nonetheless I'm generally happy with the steady progress we are making and I'm looking forward to the first youth intake. Although hopes and expectations are limited on that front you never know if our club board gave some misleading info to some youth talent and their parents. Let's start with frauding the region first. Tourcoing, la créative, on y va!

    @Deisler26 Excellent season, tense finish with a fantastic promotion as reward. Good stuff @shaunvamos Both other teams meet each other as well so that's the advantage you got. I think the last game will be decisive. Good luck with your end of season run! @smp20 A this tempo I guess father-son derbies will be there every season. Also Furiano looks like climbing up the ranks quickly I hope to get a mid season update later this day myself. Less spectacular results though... depending on how you look at it

    Thanks @smp20 My game is with ups and downs at the moment. So, I'm not an immediate top spot challenger for this thread lol I like playing YDWAWK games but I'm still playing FM17. Found a level 5 database at the French manager online website. I just hope this database works and doesn't have crash dumps. Currently it works and if it keeps doing that I'm looking forward to continue my journey a la douce France... just like all of you "frauds" Edit: more difficult is how to link posts, tag people, etc... haha

    "Merci poour l'interview" said manager Thomas Marceau to César Durand, chairman of OSF Tourcoing. Talks about a job opportunity in the youth sector of the were just held. A final decision would be made the next morning. Strangely enough both men left the office with a very good feeling. There was a lot of respect and confidence in each other. Durand had heard about the "Académie des Fraudes" and when he was able to make a call with one of the few unemployed pupils in the fraud system, a meeting between both was arranged immediately. Tourcoing is a dull city and the local football club is even worse. No money, no fans, no results,... a terrible club and place to be. Durand wanted to head into a new direction in this Nord city and decided to take a big gamble... On sunday the 12th of june 2016 he made his final decision. Instead of hiring Marceau for the youth system vacancy, he approached the manager with a contract as first team manager. A complete overhaul of the current structure and for the pupil of the fraud académie a big opportunity to make a lot of decisions that can make or break this club. It looks like chairman Durand is pretty familiar with this kind of fraud connections... Full name: Union Sport Tourcoing Football Stadium: Stade Charles Van De Veegaete (capacity: 5000) Finances: +652€ (season tickets: 25) Manager: Thomas Marceau Players: 28 (12 of them aged 20+) Ambitions: avoid automatic relegation (predicted 12th) On commence... ma fête!

    Berchem Sport Season 2 (2018-2019) Fixtures part1-part2 | League Table | Cup Fixtures | Squad Stats | Youth Intake | Facilities | Transfers | Finances | Awards Season Overview First Division Amateurs - 6th It has been a ride with ups and downs. A mixed season which saw us miss out the play-offs. Decisive for this were the bad runs at the end of December and the last 10 games of the season. Especially the last period was dramatic. Morale was completely gone in the squad. Despite that I’m not that upset about this season. Maybe it looks like a little setback but there was already a lot of squad transition. 4 youngsters already gained more than 10 games on 33, a more than decent number. Maybe a bit quick to do this but the reason is that on short term some original players get into their “mid 30’s” and lose quality. They need to be replaced. Belgian Cup - 6th Round Same sort of campaign as last year. Managing to get through the first 2 fixtures beating Hasselt and ASV Geel. After that a draw against Pro League outfit Zulte Waregem who beat us 3-1. Not the most profilic team in the top division so the finances were more limited this time. Player Stats and Awards 1. Roy Mauro: Once again key at the backbone. Played all 30 league games and has a brilliant discipline record 2. Ciro Torelli: One of our first youngsters to break through. Scoring 12 goals in his first full season 3. Bruno Appels: 14 clean sheets in 30 games is a very strong record. Excellent performance Youth Academy "Het Rooi" Class of 2019 Nicolas De Witte – back-up goalkeeper despite his personality. Due to a hernia injury (Appels) he played the last 3 games of the season. Decent prospect. Jef Wuyts – left wing back with great determination. Can grow steady as a backup. Good prospect. Dylan Hendrickx – left footed central defender with a good personality. Certainly a promising prospect. Simon Goris – another left footed central defender but less quality though. Doubtful prospect. Komlan Adrika – Belgian-Togolese defensive midfielder. Position with a lot of options. Decent prospect. Screve Mukendi – another defensive midfielder. Not much extra to say. Decent prospect. Miloud Amrani – player with double central midfield position. Will get chances. Decent prospect. Liam Van Herck – excellent personality but lacks quality. Decent prospect though Class of 2018 Ciro Torelli - really a good debut season. Scoring 12 goals, 3 assists and 6.96 avg in 23 games. Excellent progress Jelle Van Huffel - also a regular in his first first season (18 apereances). Promising progress Joaquim Martin - together with Torelli introduced as a striker and scored 7 goals. Excellent progress Tristan Put - due to an out of form key player, more substitute chances as expected. Decent progress Luca Cardella - I’m short in midfield so got regular game time. Promising progress Warre Meyvis - Active in the youth squad with sporadic first team minutes. Future unknown Jonas Claes - A couple of minutes in central midfield. Future unknown Jelle De Winter - back-up in the AMC position. Decent progress Bjorn Van Den Eynde - central defender but passed by Van Huffel. Future unknown Daniel Boyer - Due to constant performances on the left, short on game time. Future unknown Manager’s Office Youth recruitment was upgraded a level to basic. Average attendance was 911. Heading to our next season I'll try to bring more youngsters. My core of experienced players is getting smaller so I have to make the right choices now. Torelli and Van Huffel definitely can make their breakthrough. Other opportunities lie in center midfield. Hopefully someone can step in there.

    Berchem Sport Season 1 (2017-2018) General info|Fixtures part1-part2 | League Table | PO Fixtures | PO Table | Squad Stats | Youth Intake | Facilities | Finances | Awards First Division Amateurs - 4th Looking the complete picture, this is a fantastic season. We started very strong after continuing our form from a good cup run. But the fairytale didn’t continue. A dramatic November month say us losing the plot. Several draws and losses got the team slowly losing ground. Main problem in this bad run were scoring goals. Our possession rating was still very good but in front of goal all strikers lost form. After a very short pick-up of form in the December – January period, we once again got into a bad run of results (1 win in 7). We once again really lacked goals. But suddenly we peaked at the right moment! With a fantastic 4 wins in row Berchem Sport managed to reach the playoff finals. Brilliant achievement and a very successful campaign! Promotion Play-Off - 3rd Since Cercle gained that much points, promotion wasn’t possible anymore for the other 3 participants. So, we gave it our best shot and also gained the youngsters some playing time. We managed to get 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses which made us ultimately pass VW Hamme to finish 3rd in the promotion play-off. Belgian Cup - 6th Round We got an excellent start with qualification against UR Namur and Westhoek. This resulted in a gala match against the biggest team of the country, RSC Anderlecht. Our performance in that game was very good and we only lost 2-0 in front of 20.881 fans. A number of fans also nice for the financial part of the challenge Player Stats and Awards 1. Roy Mauro: Most playing minutes and games. 4 goals and a rock at the centre of defence. A certainty. 2. Tim Verstraeten: Top scorer and main threat up front. Sometimes ups and downs but with 15 goals decisive 3. Samuel Piette: Right wingback whose assists were crucial. Also high average rating. Youth Class of 2018 Everyone but one player is signed (due to only have halve a star and plays in a position which is currently completely unused in my 3 setups). My assistant picks out strikers Joaquim Martin and Ciro Torelli as his favorites. Nevertheless I’m going to work in every possible way with all of them. Since the most open positions in the first team squad are up front (Torelli and Martin) and in central defense (Van Huffel and Van Den Eynde), those players will probably get their chances quicker than the rest of the bunch. Manager’s office On the staff level my assistant manager and head physio were out of contracts. Since their pretty high wages I decided to replace them with cheaper options. Jannes Tant came in as assistant, Jos Snyers as physio. Our first average attendance: 923 The World Cup was won by Switzerland (defeating France in the final). Belgium lost in the semi-final and got 4th. Courtois, Lukaku, De Bruyne and Hazard were selected in the dream team

    @bdavies26 I like your choice of team with Oberhausen. Hopefully you have the patience to keep progressing but once you can introduce the first badge of youngsters this will be a boost @Kazushi80 Brilliant name: Eléctrico Looks a difficult challenge at the moment but the reward is double in that case. I guess it’s also the competition format which doesn’t make it simple to go up. @Muttley84 The nestor poster in this FM17 thread Over 10 seasons already and very short on completing the challenge with your Champions League participation. Good luck there. @Pippadoc Your progress is excellent in France. I already tried the challenge there, no success. So I’m envy on your progress so far. Shame the board sells your better prospects though. @Shankly84 Cool name and badge in Anakara. Despite those 2 narrow missed play-offs and keeping your head just above water, you were still progressing in a good way. It’s nice to get rewarded with promotion in your 4th season (the Leicester comparison :-) ). Success in the 2nd division! @The_Gato_In_Goal What a game with Spakenburg so far! Despite the long road to finally go up you have a fantastic game history. Really like those updates and look forward to read new successes at the highest Dutch level. I’m glad you got rewarded after all those seasons in the Jupiler league @darren1983 Another long running game. It’s excellent being already in the EFL1 since England is the most expanded competition to play this challenge in @Soviet Immediate promotion to the Ekstraklasse. Wow! Looks very very good to quick success in that way @Shakes Another country I once tried but Northern Ireland is really difficult due to the contract problems. In that way you have already achieved some excellent results and promotion. KUTGW @Jambo98 A lot of talent in Croatia so looking forward to your progress. Promotion to the highest division in your 2nd season is excellent. Going smoothly @Dan BHTFC I really admire your patience in Scotland. This will be rewarded, I’m sure of that. Keep focusing and believe in a bright future! @Sanno11 The ups and downs in this challenge are normal in the progress. Now back in the football league I’m sure you will stay there. Going up is sometimes a bit of a gamble with all those play-offs but I’m sure you’re on the way up now. @GloryFan2002 How unlucky to miss promotion by a single point. @makovn I guess it’s a bit filtering on what you want. Small country, big country? Competition format (number of games, play-off system, etc…)? Good national team? For myself I like reading a lot of challenges in different countries. As you see above, more variety isn’t possible
