  1. Haringey Borough Season 2021/22 Report Aims for this season were mid-table minimum with eyes on a playoff berth League- Started really well, just like last season. Had a mid-season collapse, just like last season. Came back even better, unlike last season and this time we just barely scraped into the playoffs in 7th on goal difference. We took on Eastleigh in the playoffs and it was a 1-1 draw in regulation before going all the way to penalties and we unfortunately lost 6-5 on pens. FA Cup- Both Lewes and Bognor Regis from the league below took us to a replay although we won both comfortably, before taking care of Eastbourne Boro from our division. We then came up against Eastleigh and unfortunately they knocked us out of this competition too, losing 4-0. FA Trophy- Got an unlucky draw with Maidenhead, the eventual winners of our division and they scraped a 1-0 win over us. Transfers Results Results 2 Best Players- Top Goalscorer: Kelsey Mooney (29) By far my best striker this year, although actually a little inconsistent. He scored 18 of these goals in the first and last months of the season, make of that what you will. Most Assists: Jake Evans (11) One of the few to keep their starting spot from last season, i'm very happy with how well he and the rest of my midfielders played. Highest avg rating: Kelsey Mooney (7.37) Most POM: Kelsey Mooney (10) Next Season: Another playoff berth is the minimum expectation, but ideally I think promotion is within reach if we have another year of good signings. We are in dire financial straits so hopefully we find a way to alleviate that. I actually signed a player for real money in Hywel Evans, a welsh wonderkid who is my best fullback at the age of 18, however he has been incredibly costly with all the clauses.

  2. Haringey Borough Season 2020/21 Report This season has been nothing but chaos, from start to finish and in every way possible. Here's how we got on: League- When I took over the club, it had 0 staff and a total of about 15 players across the first, U23 and U18 teams, most of which were not good enough to play for my mixed social 7 a side team on saturdays. Anyways, after deleting most of them and signing no less than 28 new players over the course of the season and having 6 poached away on free transfers (2 of which were signed by me this season) the squad was nearly unrecognisable. It took a long time to transition however and I had to play my first league game with a centre back up front and a bench of a GK and 3 CBs, all from our youth teams. And yet we won that game somehow and started an unlikely run that saw us looking like promotion candidates. We then decided to completely implode and went through a horrendous spell of form as soon as we hit december in conjunction with my best striker being poached away for free, with 9 games without a win. We tinkered with tactics a few times and gradually kept sliding down the table until in serious danger of relegation. Our final tactic of an extremely simple 4-3-3 seemed to have some good results and out of nowhere we beat first in the league Ebbsfleet 3-0 away to secure safety, while they needed a win to become champions. A ridiculous season overall where we occupied all places between 1st and 18th at some point in time. The highlighted 'game of the season' was a 4-1 win over Billericay and our 'moment to forget' was a 4-1 loss to Billericay which really sums it up well. FA Cup- We beat lower league East Grinstead, took Woking to a replay then beat them, defeated Truro and came up against Chorley from the division above. We took them to a replay as well, resulting in our first ever televised game however we were beaten easily in the return leg. A pretty solid performance overall. FA Trophy- Beat lower league Winchester before losing to holders Dag & Red. Transfers Results Results 2 Best Players- Top Goalscorer: Jayden Reid & Enock Asante (14) Good overall seasons from these two, despite Asante being a psycho and continually getting himself suspended. This would have gone to my star striker Daniel Akindayini if he wasn't poached away in december. Most assists: Jayden Reid (9) Highest avg rating: Enoch Asante (7.10) Most POM: Jayden Reid (5) Next Season: goals are minimum of a mid-table finish but i'd love to make the playoffs and I think we can with some good signings.

  3. I'm starting off the challenge at Haringey Borough!
  4. Oppsal Youth Intake 2042 We've hit the jackpot boys! This guy looks incredible: The best player on my team already at the age of 16. Hopefully we can keep him for at least a season or two!
  5. Oppsal Season 2041 Report Although I got an email saying that we had qualified for the Europa League this season, this was not true apparently. This was therefore not to be our first European adventure, but we could still focus on improving our position in the league and actually qualifying for next year! Cup- Easy wins against lower league Mo 5-1 and Kolstad 5-0 saw us get a really tough draw in the 3rd round with Tromsø, a decent team from our division who we had to play away from home. We put in a pretty awful performance and lost 3-0. Another disappointing year in the cup but I guess I can blame it on the tough draw somewhat. League- We went through spells of good and bad form but pretty much stuck in the Europa League places of 3rd-5th for almost the entire season. With a couple games to go we secured European qualification and still had a shot at 2nd but a very rough string of fixtures saw us finish with three straight losses and come 4th. Still, a definite improvement on last year and we are actually qualified for Europe this time! Best Players- Top goalscorer: Eirik Gunderson 39B (17 goals) This guy came completely out of nowhere. Our star striker from last season and European Golden Boy winner Andreas Samuelsen 37F picked up lots of injuries and missed over a third of the season, meaning young Eirik got some first team chances. He smashed in 5 in his first two games in the cup, then I discovered he could actually take penalties with an attribute of 14! he scored literally 8 of them from 8 attempts throughout the season. After a few penalties he began scoring a couple of actual legitimate goals in proper league games and he ended up as the top goalscorer! My other striker Emil Liebe-Hart 36C was not far behind with 16. Most assists: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C (9 assists) Solid effort from this guy who was consistent in creating and scoring goals all season. Highest avg rating: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C (7.28) Most POM: Marius Sundal 36E (6) Another good season from the young fullback who wins this award back to back MVP: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C (16 goals, 9 assists, 5 POM, 7.28 avg rating) Best U23 Player: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C as he's 21. Honorable mention to Marius Sundal 36E (3 goals, 7 assists, 6 POM, 7.28 avg rating) Results Results 2 (no) Transfers A good season overall with clear progress since last year. Next year I think we can challenge for the top 2 and a Champions League place as long as we don't have too many injuries and Rosenborg and Molde don't run away with it too easily! Our stadium is being expanded currently and we constantly have facility upgrades going. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table 2029 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Krogstad(11) Nilsen/Hoel(7) Hoel(7.09) Mid Table 2030 1st Division 8th 1st Round - Furthi(11) Rygh(4) Furthi(7.10) Mid Table 2031 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Langåker/Furthi(15) Hoel(9) Hoel(7.23) PROMOTION 2032 Premier Div. 14th 4th Round - Furthi(8) Rytterager(6) Knudtzon(7.04) Relegated 2033 1st Division 5th 4th Round - Furthi/Krogstad(8) Hoel/Jakhelln(6) Auklend(7.13) Playoffs 2034 1st Division 8th 2nd Round - Furthi(10) Hoel/Knudtzon(5) Knudtzon(7.28) Mid Table 2035 1st Division 4th Semi final - Jakelln/Ferrer(11) Hoel(11) Jakelln(7.23) Playoffs 2036 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Jakelln(7) Hoel/Vraalsen(7) Knudtzon(7.22) Playoffs 2037 1st Division 7th 4th Round - Aune(8) Haaland(6) Knudtzon(7.21) Mid Table 2038 1st Division 1st 1st Round - Sandvik(15) Aabel(8) Aabel(7.32) PROMOTION 2039 Premier Div. 9th Quarter final - Liebe-Hart(14) Aabel(11) Aabel(7.24) Mid Table 2040 Premier Div. 6th 3rd Round - Samuelsen(17) Sundal/Paulsberg/L-H(6) Sundal(7.24) Top Half 2041 Premier Div. 4th 3rd Round - Gundersen(17) Liebe-Hart(9) Liebe-Hart(7.28) EL Qual
  6. Just played out one of the most insane matches of this save so far. I don't know what I did to annoy the ref of this game because he gave the opposition no less than FOUR penalties (at least 2 of which were perfectly timed, all-ball tackles). He did give us one as well which we missed obviously, as no one on our team can take a penalty whatsoever. Still, five penalties in the same game! I almost didn't even notice one of my strikers quietly scoring a hat trick amongst the chaos!
  7. @XaW @thomas_e thanks guys, I'm determined to push through the slog and finish this challenge eventually! Seems like we are finally making some meaningful progress at last. Here's some screenshots of my best/most promising looking players!
  8. Oppsal Youth Intake 2041 Well, I just gave my HOYD a two-year extension and now I kind of wish I didn't...
  9. Update: I guess we did qualify for Europe?? Got this message after Valerenga won the Cup, so I guess Oppsal are going international next year!
  10. Oppsal Season 2040 Report I've finally finished another season of this challenge! This was our second year back up in the Norwegian Premier Division after a 9th place finish last year as we looked to improve on that this year. Plenty of developing young talent made me pretty optimistic for this season. Cup- We started with an easy 7-0 win over Fjøra and then beat our lower league affiliate Sjetten 4-0. We then drew Sandnes Ulf from the division below and put in a really poor performance as it went all the way to penalties and we lost. A 3rd round exit is really disappointing and we definitely need to do better next year. League- We started the league fantastically and for some time were sitting in 3rd, behind Molde and Rosenborg who were too good for everyone else and fought a two-horse race for the title. Our form slowly dipped as the season went on and we were increasingly hit by injuries and suspensions as our lack of depth began to show. Just over halfway through we sold our star fullback Emil Forsnes 37A as my board began accepting offers over my head. I managed to negotiate a pretty good deal as he was sold to Napoli for 8 Million with potential to go up to 12.75 million. We had good replacements for him but obviously not quite as good, and we continued to struggle a bit. A pretty horrific end to the season saw us win only 2 of our last 9 games. We were still in contention to qualify for Europe with two games to go, and we beat Molde at home in the penultimate game to give the title to Rosenborg and ensure we needed just a win at home to mid-table Lillestrom in order to qualify. I'm sure you can tell where this is going... Lillestrom walked directly through my entire team off the kickoff and scored within 15 seconds and despite some fightback we never recovered and lost 4-3, meaning we missed out on European competition by a single point. While this was a really disappointing finish, we did improve on our position from last season and we did play pretty well overall. Best Players- Top goalscorer: Andreas Samuelsen 37F (17 goals) A very good season from our most consistent striker. Our other regular strikers were a bit more inconsistent this year, with a couple going through goal droughts. Emil Liebe-Hart 36C managed a decent 13 goals this year however I was hoping he would replicate or exceed his totals from last year. Most assists: Marius Sundal 36E, Emil Liebe-Hart 36C and Nasir Paulsberg 33C (6 assists) A three-way tie between a fullback, striker and a midfielder which is nice. Highest avg rating: Marius Sundal 36E (7.24) Most POM: Marius Sundal 36E (5) This guy was thrown into the first team this year at fullback to provide depth and eventually start once Forsnes 37A was sold and he did fantastically well. I'm excited to see how good he gets. MVP: Andreas Samuelsen 37F (17 goals, 3 assists, 7.20 avg rating, 2 POM, League top goalscorer, European Golden Boy winner) Our most consistent player, led the line all season and scored lots of important goals. Somehow he also managed to win European Golden Boy this year which is pretty insane. Best U23 player: Marius Sundal 36E (1 goal, 6 assists, 7.24 avg rating, 5 POM) An awesome rookie season from the young fullback who should only get better. Results Results 2 (no) Transfers Overall I think we have to be happy with this season as we did play well overall, achieving our highest ever league finish. I know we can do better though and will be targeting Continental qualification next season for sure. We have had an improvement to youth facilities completed, another one in the works and my board has just agreed to expand our stadium to put some of that transfer income to use. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table 2029 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Krogstad(11) Nilsen/Hoel(7) Hoel(7.09) Mid Table 2030 1st Division 8th 1st Round - Furthi(11) Rygh(4) Furthi(7.10) Mid Table 2031 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Langåker/Furthi(15) Hoel(9) Hoel(7.23) PROMOTION 2032 Premier Div. 14th 4th Round - Furthi(8) Rytterager(6) Knudtzon(7.04) Relegated 2033 1st Division 5th 4th Round - Furthi/Krogstad(8) Hoel/Jakhelln(6) Auklend(7.13) Playoffs 2034 1st Division 8th 2nd Round - Furthi(10) Hoel/Knudtzon(5) Knudtzon(7.28) Mid Table 2035 1st Division 4th Semi final - Jakelln/Ferrer(11) Hoel(11) Jakelln(7.23) Playoffs 2036 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Jakelln(7) Hoel/Vraalsen(7) Knudtzon(7.22) Playoffs 2037 1st Division 7th 4th Round - Aune(8) Haaland(6) Knudtzon(7.21) Mid Table 2038 1st Division 1st 1st Round - Sandvik(15) Aabel(8) Aabel(7.32) PROMOTION 2039 Premier Div. 9th Quarter final - Liebe-Hart(14) Aabel(11) Aabel(7.24) Mid Table 2040 Premier Div. 6th 3rd Round - Samuelsen(17) Sundal/Paulsberg/L-H(6) Sundal(7.24) Top Half
  11. Oppsal Youth Intake 2040 I just replaced my HOYD and his first intake is not the best but also not terrible: We did get one player that looks very promising, Strand 40A: I will have to retrain him, probably as a CM, as we don't play with attacking midfielders but he does look like he'll turn into a good player.
  12. Oppsal Season 2039 Report Our second attempt at the Norwegian Premier Division, and this time with a better team! Goals for this year were simply to avoid relegation. Cup- A pretty good run saw us beat Ready 5-0, record our biggest win ever over Senja with a 7-0 thrashing (in which my CB Sivert Hovland 37C scored a first half hattrick of 2 free kicks and a penalty?), coast past Mjøndalen 4-1 and Bodø/Glimt 3-0 before meeting Rosenborg in the quarter finals. They are unfortunately much better than us and recorded an easy 2-0 win, eventually going on to win the competition. Overall a pretty good effort in the cup this year though. League- We weren't super consistent but we scored an absolute ton of goals with 56, 2nd most in the league. Our reckless attacking tactic worked well enough over the course of the season to grab us a comfortable 9th place finish with no threat of relegation at all. A great effort from the team and I'm sure we can do even better next year. Best Players- Top goalscorer: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C (14 goals) A really good season from our next great hope at striker. He suffered a bit from injury so definitely could have scored even more. He won the Players' young player of the season award and is apparently in contention for European Golden Boy. Most assists: Arne Aabel 35D (11 assists) This guy is just the perfect attacking right back and I love him. He actually racked up 4 assists in a single match against Fredrikstad. Highest avg rating: Arne Aabel 35D (7.24) Most POM: Emil Liebe-Hart 36C and Andreas Samuelsen 37F (5) Two of my strikers, which is not surprising. I had 4 strikers hit double figures for goals this year as we just kept smashing them in. My regular front three managed 37 goals and 10 assists, plus another 11 goals and 2 assists from our 4th choice Hurthi 28F. MVP: Glenn Arne Knudtzon 29A (6 goals, 10 assists, 7.23 avg rating, 1 POM) Another fantastic season from the club legend who is just a machine in midfield. Best U23 Player: Arne Aabel 35D (1 goal, 11 assists, 7.24 avg rating, 2 POM) Results Results 2 (no) Transfers So another really good season as we achieved the goals we set out. We had one major transfer this year, which was young CB Sivert Hovland 37C, who looked absolutely incredible in the first half of the season and was obviously way too good to play for us. Top clubs from all over Europe came in for him and once my board started accepting offers over my head, I negotiated some better offers. We ended up almost quadrupling our transfer record by selling him to Liverpool for 8 Million, plus a 40% profit sell-on clause. We had some depth at CB so it wasn't a catastrophic loss and it definitely improved our finances, as I immediately got another youth facility improvement approved which will start construction soon. Next year I'd be perfectly happy with another mid-table finish but I think we can definitely improve at least a little bit on this season. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table 2029 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Krogstad(11) Nilsen/Hoel(7) Hoel(7.09) Mid Table 2030 1st Division 8th 1st Round - Furthi(11) Rygh(4) Furthi(7.10) Mid Table 2031 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Langåker/Furthi(15) Hoel(9) Hoel(7.23) PROMOTION 2032 Premier Div. 14th 4th Round - Furthi(8) Rytterager(6) Knudtzon(7.04) Relegated 2033 1st Division 5th 4th Round - Furthi/Krogstad(8) Hoel/Jakhelln(6) Auklend(7.13) Playoffs 2034 1st Division 8th 2nd Round - Furthi(10) Hoel/Knudtzon(5) Knudtzon(7.28) Mid Table 2035 1st Division 4th Semi final - Jakelln/Ferrer(11) Hoel(11) Jakelln(7.23) Playoffs 2036 1st Division 4th 2nd Round - Jakelln(7) Hoel/Vraalsen(7) Knudtzon(7.22) Playoffs 2037 1st Division 7th 4th Round - Aune(8) Haaland(6) Knudtzon(7.21) Mid Table 2038 1st Division 1st 1st Round - Sandvik(15) Aabel(8) Aabel(7.32) PROMOTION 2039 Premier Div. 9th Quarter final - Liebe-Hart(14) Aabel(11) Aabel(7.24) Mid Table
  13. @Brother Ben One more tip is to get any really promising young players signed to full-time/professional contracts as soon as possible to prevent big clubs from swooping in and stealing them for free, as has happened to me a few times!
  14. Oppsal Youth Intake 2039 Well, it's better than last year but still a little disappointing. There are a lot of high determination players and some with good personalities. Also 3 strikers with 4 star potential, hopefully at least one of those develops into fist team quality as that's an area we need to improve in. The one really good prospect is a GK, which we don't desperately need but I guess it's good to have a solid backup in case we lose our current star keeper. Here's Bruhjell, who does look pretty good:
