  1. 2020-21 Season Review - Motta To The Rescue Serie C Bang! We just hang on for survival. A great run to end the season saved us as we got carried by Motta's goals. This was the run of games to end the season, peep how many points Motta won us by himself. Transfers Okay so, transfers. For anyone who's done the San Marino challenge the figure of spending should jump out to you. How on earth did I spend 300k? Well it was essentially on impulse. I dropped a crazy 200k on Fratangelo on deadline day purely because I could, an absolutely horrendous decision as he finished with an average rating of 6.80 and 10 league goals. Stupid decision making from myself which could have put the club in jeopardy had I not made some sales to raise cash. In general my transfers this year were a mess, hence how many players we signed. I signed new wingers but ended up switching to a back 5 halfway through the season which made them redundant. We signed about 7 centre halves through the season in a desperate search for some stability as we LEAKED goals. The signing of the season hands down was Maurizio Motta who joined in January and single handedly DRAGGED us to survival. For 35k Maurizio Motta is an absolute bargain, 16 goals and 5 assists in 19 games is an absolutely ridiculous return and without him I'd 100% be getting ready to play in the playout fighting for survival. I'm desperate to keep this guy next season but he has a 140k release clause and won't renew his contract so in all likelihood he will be gone next season unless he has a change of heart (I want to give you all my money Maurizio please stay xx). Good bit of business on Simonetti who joined in the summer for free and left in January for 200k, helped to offset the madness of the Fratangelo deal. Awards and Team Of The Season Somehow Motta didn't even get top 3 for fans player of the season. I'm angry on his behalf. Youth Intake Horrible. Not worth even analysing. None of them will ever contribute anything meaningful. Finances I did my best to bankrupt the club with my transfer dealings but we came out not too badly in the end. Misc Need to concede less from indirect free kicks, only team below us finished last in the league by a mile.

  3. I loaned a fair amount of players, the no wages is a fantastic benefit when the club is struggling for cash in Serie D/C. I do like to have some permanent players in though, mostly for social hierarchy type stuff.
  4. Really confusing, as bad as it sounds I'm kinda hoping it's something to do with your expansion DL rather than just the game being bugged because if it completely kills the San Marino challenge I'll be annoyed

    2020-2021 Youth Intake - Beyond awful Not even gonna dignify this with any analysis, terrible intake!
  6. 2020-21 January Update 19th in the table. I really don't know what to say. This entire season has been a nightmare. I've made some AWFUL decisions including spending big money on players in an impulse spree and we've just sucked on the pitch. The defense is a genuine disgrace, if there was an option I'd have throttled the left back. On the plus side we're unbeaten in three, thats about the only positive of the season. Hopefully we can strengthen in January and get out of this mess because otherwise we're going down.

  8. Good progress guys. I haven't played much today, it's depressing getting battered in Serie C haha.
  9. I'm having a complete nightmare in Serie C at the minute. It is GRIM.

    I didn't notice any issues with it but I'm not 100% sure what to look out for. Perhaps there is a better one out there
  11. Awesome stuff @Lewis89, with Rovaglia back I think you should for sure be pushing for promotion. Serie C can be annoying to get out of if you don't win the league because the playoffs are a real gauntlet.

    First 3 games of Serie C, safe to say the defense is a problem.
  13. 2019-20 Season Review - Champions Serie D Spent most of the season fighting with Pavia for control of top spot, I eventually wrangled it away from them and then they absolutely collapsed and finished 4th which is pretty mad. Once we got ahead of Pavia we never looked back, kept winning and winning until eventually they couldn't keep up. League was wrapped up with 4 games to go, dominant season. We then had to go and play in the Serie D playoffs vs the winners of Group C which was Pontedera who we beat 3-0 pretty easy. Serie C here we come. Transfers Transfer wise I brought in a lot of loanees. They serve two purposes, 1. they're obviously good players and 2. they're all here for free which is critical when the club loses as much money as we do. The best signings were Harvey St Clair who banged 15 goals in from the wing and Nannelli who got 16 assists from the right side, a lot of them crosses to St Clair. Awards and Team of the Season In the team of the season you'll see 17 year old Zonzini who made 28 league appearances at the age of 16, got us 8 goals and 2 assists. Player of the season went to D'Addario (who's from San Marino) who had a ridiculous season at right back with a 7.53 avg rating, 3 goals, 10 assists, 9 MoTM's. Our keeper ends the season with a 91% pass completion rate which shows his success at helping us play out from the back as you'd never get 91% punting it to the striker. Youth Intake Youth intake kinda sucked, nothing to get excited about here. Finances Finances held up alright, ended up in the red which kinda sucks but hopefully now with promotion we will be okay. Club Turns Professional Stats We went up bossing the ball. A lot of people always told me to keep it simple and play direct in the lower leagues because you won't have the players to play football that requires technical ability but you can defo craft a good enough team to pass around the teams in the lower leagues.
