  1. i THINK i might have given them a brief go at one time as well...
  2. good luck @Crispypaul - you and Norway seem to go well together. Lyn are a good club too
  3. @Andrew Haines - unlucky mate on those two near misses.... sounds like a tricky decision to make in terms of finances. don't envy you. good luck - third time lucky??
  4. congratulations on your immediate promotion @Andrew Haines. Good luck next season.
  5. @2481 - 6th - i'll settle for that! Just couldn't seem to get the strikers firing.. @Lower Leagues Rule - unlucky with the Windows Update - i can imagine it was frustrating
  6. good luck @Lower Leagues Rule. Whilst i have an issue in making them the best team in Asturias overtaking Real Oviedo , i wish you all the best...
  7. thanks mate. Took me by surprise to be honest but we had a great run during the winter and spring and we found ourselves in a good position. Hoping we haven't made it to Serie A too quickly though..
  8. S. S. C. Bari Serie B Season 2020/21 Media Prediction: 7th League Table: 1st (Champions) League Graph: After last seasons promotion, my initial target was a mid-table finish for the new season. The media however thought we could do better and had us 7th. A steady start to the season where we found our feet lead into a decent unbeaten run (i forget how many games but it was around 10-12 i think) around Christmas where we established ourselves as a promotion contender. In the end the run between December and April we lost twice in 19 games as we hit top spot. By then we had established a decent lead which meant that a wobble in the final 7 games where we only won twice didn't damage our title win (just). In terms of players we (again) relied heavily on loanees to form the basis of the squad as our transfers showed (pt. 1, pt. 2, pt. 3). This was less to do with our financial position and more the fact that the quality of players i needed weren't interested in joining permanently. The standout players were: Squad 1 Squad 2 Squad 3 GK Ionut Radu - Signed on loan from Genoa, he was a rock in goal and the key stone in our solid defensive line AMR: Tanguy Coulibaly - Young French winger signed on loan from PSG. Scored and created a number of important goals. AML: Sandro Freitas - Another young winger, this time on loan from Milan. The Portugese U21 scored 13 goals in the league, a key component in our success. ST: Raul Asencio - Another loanee, again from Genoa, Raul was probably our best striker in a position we actually struggled in a little. So after two straight promotions we find ourselves in Serie A. Given our reliance on loanees, a big summer of recruitment awaits and anything other than survival will be a success. I genuinely expect us to struggle but we shall see - i thought the same last season...
  9. sorry to hear that @Rolphynho. Hopefully the lessons you have learnt in this season help you for your net attempt.
  10. good luck @Tecmo. Even with my slightly dodgy memory i can remember your Civil Service Strollers save. Good luck with The Spartans
  11. @2481 - i'm into mid-March now. going quite well for me too - in the promotion race with 8 games to go... Well done on your title!
  12. tough start @Rolphynho but hopefully the green shoots are promising and you can at least pass Prato and make the playouts. Fingers crossed for you.
  13. welcome and good luck @Rolphynho - good to see another in Italy. Certainly not making it easy for yourself but good luck. It's something i have debated before but not been brave enough to try.
  14. @2481- good opening post there - looking forward to seeing how you get on. Italy (for me anyway) has been an enjoyable county to manage in so far. good luck.
  15. welcome and good luck @2481. Good to see another in Italy and another phoenix club....
  16. Thanks @Biscotti - still here and checking in on the page most nights to see what is going on. Just finding time to compile the end of season post and get it uploaded. I am actually in November now... Congratulations on the title! Unlucky against Sporting in the Champions League qualifying round but well done on topping the Europa League group! Unlucky against Hamburg but it will have been a learning experience for the team. You seem to have got some good players there - like the look of Krzczuk and i agree you need to tie him down to a new deal. Good luck next season
  17. @uroszila - welcome to the challenge and good luck with Merida. Playing on Touch is fine for the challenge - the more the merrier. Merida are a club i have heard of and one that would fit into my own personal criteria of choosing a team in one that has been in the top leagues before and trying to get them back so i approve of your choice!!
  18. Bari Serie C Season 2019-20 League Table Graph Squad 1 Squad 2 Squad 3 I am keeping this review brief (i'll be more detailed in later reviews) but our first season in Serie C saw us crowned champions. We started steady but then went on an incredible unbeaten run in the middle third of the season which saw us rise up the league finally hitting top spot with 4 games to go where we held on until the end. Whilst i thought pre-seaon we could make the play-offs i am over the moon to get promotion first time round. In terms of players we relied a lot on loanees to get the quality required but our top goalscorers (Ngombo and Floriano, both with 10) were our own players. For next season, we'll aim to survive and go from there. We should be good enough to do this but time will tell.
  19. welcome and good luck @Balahara. Wondered where you had disappeared to @Lower Leagues Rule - nice trip to Barbados eh!
  20. cheers @Tecmo. bit surprised but i'll take it... was hoping / expecting a top half finish but over-achieved for sure.
  21. good luck @Tecmo - good history to the club. When looking at clubs i have seen their history and thought it'd be an interesting save. Good luck
  22. sorry to hear that @Tecmo. Sounds like the team let you down though. Good luck wherever you go next.
  23. good luck @GloryFan2002 with the challenge . will keep a keen eye on it and might pop over at some point to give it a go.
