  1. Nothing huge, but I'm kind of proud of this team. I expected to have at least one more season in Serie B, but then we just went out to destroy everybody and lost only one game until we clinched the Championship. Also Palmieri - what a beast, my God.
  2. How about ESA18? Any plans for that?
  3. here from my current save game and I'm pretty sure I've seen another example on youtube stream
  4. For some reason Lucjan Brychczy's (ID: 710469) age gets randomised each savegame. His correct DOB is 13/06/1934.
  5. Giovanni Ignoffo (ID: 11072) is no longer the manager of US Avellino (ID:1108). The new manager is Ezio Capuano (ID: 3803857), who left Rieti (ID: 6100208) at the end of 18/19 season. Also Giovanni Ignoffo (ID: 11072) was hired by Benevento Calcio between 2014 and 2017 and then he took over the Palermo U18 squad until the beggining of 19/20 season, when he left for Avellino and got fired in October. https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_Ignoffo https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezio_Capuano

  7. October 2019 In this kind of situations, I always tell myself that I don't need to understand everything, so there is nothing wrong if I don't understand this for example. Suddenly we are the hottest team in the Serie C and we take out opponents left and right. It seems like giving a chance to younger guys on the team actually pays off. Mansueto is on his Glik-swag because he scores after pretty much every corner and Crivaro looks even better than last year. Due to Dolcini's injury, Boscolo Zemelo starts every game and he is nuts, even though he got only one goal this month. Hilarious.
  8. September 2019 Expected. The reason is simple - we didn't play as a team. It kind of reminds me the beginning of the season with F.C Avellino, where our results depended on the form of certain players. Here in Serie C - stuff looks familiar. There were a few positives though - we didn't make any mistake while loaning new players and all of them were useful and are about to be useful in near future as well. Besides, the guys who were already on the team are really leading the charge, giving it all for the team. This actually lets me think that there is no way we are getting relegated this season. Also, Wolsztyński, who appears to be my first cash transfer got along pretty good and he was really killing it, even though he didn't know any Italian word when he came to Serravalle. On the other hand, we had big time troubles with injuries - pretty much every game someone had to be subbed off, which didn't help us in getting the team in shape. Hopefully, next months will be better.
  9. Offseason 2019 Mr. Janukiewicz, can we get a word from you? A lot of hard work this time. We became a professional organization once again so we had not only to contract the players who were already on the squad but also find new ones, who will increase the quality. Eventually, we finished the team after bringing 15 new players (!!!), while losing only two. Sadly, we had to accept the offer for GabiDol. We will, of course, have him back for one more season, but the fact he just accepted the offer from BENEVENTO is a disgrace. It was also my first cash transfer in the whole career and it already was pretty high. The money we earned won't only let us calmly stay alive in Serie C this season, but also bring some players in. The only player we bought though is Rafał Wolsztyński (, 24, 0/0). He will be playing not only as a back-up to Dolcini, but he also can fill in in midfield in De Angelis' role from last season. The biggest loanees are definitely Francesco Bucchi (, 17, 0/0), Alberto Capellini (, 17, 0/0) and Christian Capone (, 20, 0/0). Alongside Pablo Negri (, 20, 0/0) and Pierluigi Pinto (, 20, 0/0) they will create a good core to fight for the predicted 9th place. Although, my personal fav is a free agent Marian Galdean (, 30, 0/0) who will bring a lot of much-needed experience to our young midfield. We won the bidding battle for him against a few bigger Serie C names than us, so this makes me especially happy. We could also capitalize on Salvatore Minotti (, 19, 0/0), a youngster who scored 10 goals on Serie D level and somehow managed to become a free agent after A.S.D Mezzolara decided to not renew his deal. Yes, we played a few friendlies and Coppa Italia Serie C. Meh.
  10. Teaser trailer from offseason: Guess it's a nice deal and we're getting him back for one more season, but still...
  11. @mark1985 thank you. Now it's the time to show the world what we are made of.
  12. Season 2018/2019 Summary STANDINGS - RESULTS (SEP-DEC) - RESULTS (JAN-JUN) - INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS - TEAM LEADERS - FINANCES PLAYER OF THE SEASON 1. Gianluca Frabotta - another fullback who excelled under me. His combination of speed and technique is pretty much the full package for my dream wingback. Defenders had a hard time when he was coming into attacking third. 2. Gabriel Dolcini - the biggest hope of Sanmarinese calcio. He was playing great all season long and he didn't have any bad moment. It would be great to keep him in Serravalle, but I'm pretty sure that someone bigger will come and show him the brighter sight of football. 3. Filippo Ghizzardi - a bit more well rounded than his vis-a-vis, but could use some more speed though. Ghizzardi signed with us to rebuild his broken career and it looks like he is on a good way to stick with football. He quickly took out Ceccarelli out the starting line up and he hopes to keep his spot next season. 4. Alessandro Conti - exceptionally this season I will point out five players (instead of three) as our both central midfielders had a great season. Conti started his career in Juventus and after two failed loans to Cesena, he ended in San Marino. Alongside De Angelis, he rolled in the central part of the field in most of the games. He lacks experience though, but if he sticks with us for the next season, I can see him adding it. 5. Nicolò De Angelis - a Roma loanee looks like the next solid Serie A player. He has it all - head, heart and legs. His brilliant plays made some other players better. It would be great to keep him, but Roma probably will look for a club in a higher division than Serie C. It was a pleasure though to train such a good centrocampista. U.S Avellino 1912 Someone mean would say that we defended our ground. Well, it's the third season in a row when Lupi finish 14th. After a good start though, when for a moment we were placed 7th, we immediately felt down to the lower places. At least our brothers from Frosinone made it to the Serie A, so this championship run of Benevento doesn't sound so bad. This time it was Francesco Forte (, 26, 0/0), a loaned from Inter striker, who was playing on the pretty decent level, scoring pretty much regularly, however it looks like we are currently stuck with the current board and the coaching staff. It looks like the president is okay with Avellino seating in a midway of the table and Novellino is perfectly safe, even though he just can't make this team progress. At least we finished strong and after beating Benevento (hilarious game, Gigi Castaldo with a hattrick only ten minutes after he checked into the game) and Salernitana in the second half of the season, we rule the lovely region of Campania.
  13. May&June 2019 Well, we tried to throw it away but we kept our cool and here we are - your Serie D Girone E champions. Theoretically, we clinched it after the Albissola draw, because Virtus decided to drop some points as well and to get in front of us they had to win their last game by at least 16 goals and hope that we lose our game against Real Forte Querceta. However, we didn't let them regret scoring less and we just won our home closer. Winning the title got us a seeding in Serie D Poule Scudetto with decides the ultimate champion of all Serie D gironi, but we lost in semis on penalties against S.S Matera Calcio - a club which was randomly selected from three teams in their group as all three possessed the same record. It was a good finish to a good season and I'm pretty sure that upcoming one is going to be a great one as well.
  14. @Sambacutilamba: well, I wasn't that impressed with this hattrick because Ozzanese plays on the seventh level, however, I have to say that Dolcini easily becomes one of my favorite players in FM18. It's kind of unlucky that he doesn't score in NT, but I'm sure that he is on his way to beat Andy Selva's scoring record.
  15. April 2019 I signed the new contract and immediately I started the Continental C license course . Media prepared the official summary for the last few legs of Serie D. We also decided to play two friendlies in between the league matches to keep the match sharpness. Competetive games went according to plan - we won them in a pretty convincing way. Virtus Castelfranco kept the pace though, so the final settlements are coming in May.
  16. March 2019 And we got ahead. After we started with an awful draw, we managed to stay focused and we didn't concede any goal until the end of the month. There are 3 points which divide us and Virtus Castelfranco after they somehow managed to lose two games and one of them was pretty devastating. At this moment there is no way I would accept losing more points and moving back to the second place. We have the perfect schedule* (Virtus has pretty much the same, but whatever) and all goes exactly as planned. Even the youth recruitment went pretty sick. Yari Fiori (, 15, 0/0) looks pretty decent and is about to have a good career in lower divisions and Matteo Giacobbi (, 15, 0/0) seems to be our next good striker after Dolcini. He certainly won't be as good as him - physically he's much worse and his technique could be better here and there, but I can see him taking the number nine in few years. On the other hand, Dolce gets better and each game, so I wouldn't be surprised if Giacobbi actually bypassed him, as he is younger and has a chance to debut much earlier then Gabriel. I also started negotiating the new deal. * once again the same thing with the editor, Serie C and higher looks perfectly normal, so I'm looking forward to that.
  17. February 2019 Overall a good month, but there was a little bit of dissatisfaction. A great f-word victory in a match against Virtus Castelfranco gave us the first place, but we got back to the second in the most compromising way, pretty much throwing the game against Lavagnese after the first half. We need to stabilize because whoever will take the championship, will be also the one who keeps the same level through the last few months. The terms will be exactly the same since Virtus got eliminated from the Coppa Italia, so it's going to be tough.
  18. January 2019 Boring month. We contracted only one player and it was an emergency transfer. Ivan Rondanini (, 23, 0/0) is a right wingback, a product of AC Milan with a pretty neat career in Serie C (26 games, 1 goal) and could be a good addition to the squad next season after Ceccarelli retires. This time lack of friendlies didn't help with hunger and we lost the first game. We bounced back next week after a wonderful comeback. Boscolo Zemelo appears to be especially good when he actually starts the match. He capitalized on Dolcini's injury and it would be nice if he kept on scoring.
  19. December 2018 Dolce's on fire, your defense... Well, we all know how it goes. He's the perfect combo - fast, strong and definitely can finish. I'm pretty sure that it's gonna be hard to keep him in Serravalle in summer. At the moment though there is no interest in his services and he will keep scoring for us for next couple of months. Meanwhile, we lost on penalties in Coppa Italia Serie D and it was some kind of an upset, as we were clearly the favorites. Even the home turf didn't help and we got eliminated after we missed two. The good thing is that we keep winning in league games and we go head to head with Virtus Castelfranco, and the rest of the league just watches us from behind. Hopefully, we will eventually jump into the driver seat, because after that shoot-out against Clodiense I would like to not go to penalties once against with these lads.
  20. @Deisler26: unfortunately, they were relegated last season from Serie C, but they play in Girone D, so they are safe for now. Although they are doing pretty well at the moment and there is a probability that we meet on the professional level next season.
  21. November 2018 And we are back on the winning track. As of now, I am really scared of losing streak and internal crisis. I'm not 100% sure if I could manage in such conditions. At the moment we are doing great. Dolcini scores more and more, and when he isn't eligible to play, Boscolo Zemelo puts on his jersey and keeps doing the same thing. Looks like the chances that we gave to players who looked like wasted talents are paying off. Crivaro does a lot on right flank alongside Ghizzardi and Alessandro Conti is rolling the central part. Also, Frabotta keeps drilling the left side of the field and he really seems to be uncatchable for slower defenders.
  22. October 2018 Just the moment I was about to name myself a new Pep Guardiola or Bill Belichick, we lost. I have to say that the game against Unione Sanremo was entirely my fault. We had everything under control and the pep-talk just ruined everything. This wasn't the end of losing points this month though. We came into the Virtus Castelfranco clash as one of two favorites to take it all at the end of the season and they outplayed us. Draw in a game against Grosseto was pretty much the same - our rivals are still predicted to finish 3rd in Serie D and they really took over. We lost the battle in the midfield and the last minute penalty saved us from the fire. The good thing is that Dolcini still scores and starts to look like a dominant striker. It's really fun to coach him.
  23. September 2018 I will start off with coaching Licence update. You knew that I've started my B course on Christmas and it looks like you missed the graduation day. It had to be somewhere in April, which would actually explain why I forgot about it. At the moment, my profile looks like this. The current course will end somewhere near January. And now, back to the football. Coming into the season, I was cautious. It turned out that the players weren't so good with my tactics, so I had to make a few tweaks. Although we looked better at the end of the offseason, we were still in the woods and I wasn't expecting this kind of start. For a moment, we were looking like the next level of Serie D football. We weren't as pacey as F.C. Avellino was, but we played very tricky and we used pretty much every advantage we had. Even injuries didn't slow us down. Angelo Marinelli deserves a personal shout-out. He stepped up big time when Pestrin went down and didn't let us down while doing probably the most depressing job in our tactic. I'm also extremely happy for Boscolo Zemelo and Crivaro - we gave them a chance to restore their careers and it looks like they are both on a good way to make a name for themselves. Sooooo excited.
