  1. February 2040 So been super slacking in terms of time spent playing FM. However I think the bug is back. We are in FEB 2041 so a quick update where we are. San Marino Calcio 2039/40 Serie A - Winners Champions League - Lost to R Madrid in 1st KO Round. TIM Cup - Winners SuperCoppa - Winners Another season of domination domestically, but our no signings policy for the past 4 seasons is taking its toll on our performances in Europe. We won it 3 times in a row between 2035-2037 but have failed the past 3 seasons. Last season Sassuolo won the Champions League and finished as runners up in the league. Shevchenko has been in charge for 7 years and they have improved year on year and look like they could be our rivals for a while. Youth Production Due to the no signings policy this area is really coming on strong and we have a number of Sammarinese youngsters in almost every position who have the potential to do a job in Serie A at the least. We still dont have a "Superstar" youth prospect, but its the depth of our 3* potential players that is impressive at the moment, and I fancy a few to progress beyond that level. I will do a squad depth run down in the summer. San Marino 2040 EURO 2040 Group Stages Nations League Results Nation We done really well to get out of a difficult group, only to get pumped 8-0 by Germany. The less said the better. The Nations League was much better and we stormed to promotion from C to B for the first time in this save. We are at a save high of 80th in the rankings and I really think we can push for the top 50 over the next few years. We have been handed a World Cup 2042 qualification group of death featuring Holland, Ireland, Sweden, Lithuania and Gibraltar. I fancy us to beat Lithuania and Gibraltar but the other 3 sides are gonna be very tough games. The U19S qualified for EURO 2040 also and performed brilliantly to seal a place at the 2041 U20's World Cup. This is the second time we have qualified and although its highly unlikely we will get to the latter stages, its a fun adventure along the way.

  3. San Marino 2039 Nation League Table Results Squad Is this the year the landscape finally changes for little old San Marino. I have been saying for a while we were on the verge of something great and 2039 has been that year. We have finally managed to qualify for our first ever European Championships and we have done it the hard way. The group was by no means easy with France, Sweden and Greece all nations ranked higher than our 97th when the qualifiers started. It was a campaign of 2 halves with us winning our first 4 games including a excellent 3-2 win over Sweden which really had me dreaming, and even though we lost 3 of our remaining 4 games we managed to seal 2nd place and with it, a first ever major finals. We are not going to rip up any trees, drawn in a group with Sweden, Austria and Portugal, i'm expecting to finish bottom but if we can recreate our Sweden heroics then who knows. We have also managed to qualify for the 2040 U19s EUROS this same summer so will have a very busy off season.

  5. Yeah i had the same thing when i did this the dual way. Think i had one player move to Serie B but he failed to make the cut and was back in San Marino within a couple of seasons.
  6. Have you had many HG players move on from San Giovanni onto any decent clubs/leagues? Might be the next step in some of the players development.
  7. Yeah maybe the best route to do this would be to use san giovanni as a feeder team. Train the san marino knowledge up there and then let him move over to Calcio maybe. Only issue is he may lose the knowledge over time.
  8. That is quite an interesting point regarding the HOYD's knowledge of san marino. Can you send a HOYD out on a scouting assignment? Im gonna have a look into this myself.
  9. San Marino Calcio 2038/39 Competitions Serie A - We won our 6th title in a row, but it was a close run battle with Fiorentina and we only sealed the title on the last day. With not signing anyone for the last 2 seasons, I expect us to fall away a little bit soon enough. But having won everything needed with the club side, the focus has fully shifted to developing the national team players. TIM Cup - We lost in the QF to Inter Champions League - We lost in the QF to Manchester United. Reserves A solid season saw them finish the season in 9th which is the highest in 5 seasons. Youth Production Intake Another season with no stand out player and we really need some stars to come through or we will flat line soon enough. That being said I have changed my HOYD this summer as we are producing decent players but not enough good players. I know these stars are not set in stone and I also know that even a 2.5 star player can be very effective in the right role. I mentioned a CM in my last club post who I said looked massively underrated and as it stands, I was correct. Marani 38b was rated as 3* PA and still is but I rate him higher and think he could be a very good player in the future. Finances We have £362m in the bank and are 10 years away from being able to build a new stadium. Other Stuff We have had our first club icon retire, he is not HG or Sammarinese, but what a player he has been for us. Sosa joined us 13 years ago and has played a key part in the clubs development. He didnt want to stay in football so we havent been able to offer him a staff role sadly. Also I have reached 1000 games in management.
  10. San Marino 2038 Nations League Table Results Easily our most disappointing year for some time, we just couldn't get going in the Nations League. We have a half decent team now and have a few youngsters in the clubs youth sides who will improve us further in the next few years. We ended the year ranked 97th.

  13. Great progress mate. With dual nationals i have found unless they are of serious quality, at around 21/22 they will change preference and pick San Marino. I have only lost 1 player to Italy so far and he is a potential Balon D'or winner so we never stood a realistic chance of calling him up. I even held him back for a couple of seasons to force it but that didnt work.
  14. Not sure tbh. It seems im the only one who has had this issue on the challenge thread. And it looks like something to do with the Serie C play offs. Draws are decided by seedings of the clubs involved
  15. San Marino Calcio 2037/38 Senior Team Competitions Overview Serie A Another solid season where we swept up domestically, this being our 5th league title in a row. The Champions League didnt go so well though, champions for the last 3 seasons, we got spanked by Liverpool in the QF, going out 4-0 over the 2 legs. We also played in the 2037 FIFA Club World Cup losing to Totenham in the QF, and it looks as though the English sides will be challenging our continental dominance for the next few seasons. Playing Squad Squad 1 Squad 2 Transfers We are implementing a youth only policy, the transfers were for players not signed from the 2037 Intake by my HOYD whilst on holiday during that buggy season. I promoted 11 youngsters to the first team squad in the summer for mentoring reasons etc, and a few have came on well due to this. Mentoring seems to be alot more effective than FM19 and this is working well with players with bad personalities, I may start trying to track these changes somehow. We have finally fielded a fully HG side, already through in the Champions League group stage, our final fixture was against PSV and the boys done us proud with a thumping 4-1 victory. Some of our senior players are coming to their later years now, and this will allow more opportunities for the youngsters to gain valuable playing time in the senior team. I am hoping that going out early in the Champions League will lower the boards expectations for next season, meaning there is less pressure on the result. We also had our first youth product win the Serie A Player Of The Year Award, Andrea Protti 29a is a special little player, just a shame he chose Italy over San Marino. He will regret it one day. Reserves Squad Serie B Another decent season from the reserves saw them finish in 11th place. We had 2 stand out players Aragon 35b came 2nd in the race for top scorer, netting 16 goals. Whilst Chris Barry 35j finished with a league high average rating of 7.43 and bagged most most of the matches with 8. Its a shame neither can play for the national side. Youth Production Intake Nothing amazing as per usual. We do have a CM who looks massively underrated and that is a position we are lacking players in for the national side so that is a big plus. Finances and Facilities Finances Facilities 11 years until we can build a new stadium, we should have more than enough to pay for a mega arena with no need of a loan by then. Other Stuff The San Marino domestic league is now ranked 117th in Europe which is above the Welsh Premier Division, that is really good progress. I know the Welsh league is nothing special but its a good sign. Every team is now Professional, and 4 teams have built and moved into New Stadiums and a further 3 teams looking for sites to build on. My biggest worry is none of the sides seem too bothered about developing youth players. Looking over each clubs facilities history, there has only been about 10 upgrades. Pennarossa Calcio are responsible for nearly half of the mentioned upgrades and have the current best facilities. However, San Giovanni, our affiliate club are the dominant force having won 4 of the last 5 Titles. They have actually qualified for the group stages of the UEFA Europa Conference League in the 2036/37 season but failed to get out the group. This season they failed to even qualify for the group stages.
