  1. That's what I did... gathered all Breton cities in game ( editor ), and then created and saved a search filter by birth place. It took me a couple of hours max.
  2. Juve and Ajax are a class above I think and if I get 3rd place I'll be happy, talent is meagre in my Breton squad!
  3. SEPTEMBER - SEASON 2019-20 Dropped points in the Ligue against Montpellier as I rotated before Ajax which we could not beat neither. In the derby against Guingamp, I changed tactics and reverted back to last season's to try out a promising 17 years old from the academy on the right wing. This young lad scored 5 in the match and we trashed them 6-0! He is currently my best scorer in the league. Against the mustard makers, I could not do better than a draw. Happy so far with how the season is going considering that I am only playing with Breton players.
  4. That's the plan in CL, the group will be super tight. Both Ajax and Hannover being well able to take points from everyone. I will prioritise the domestic cups and the league to finish in EL spots minimum. PSG under Arsene Wenger is doing extremely well this season, I don't think my Breton-only team will be a match this season for them. I have signed pretty much all the best Brittany-born player, excepted Gonzalo Higuain who would never join Rennes anyway :-) So there are plenty money in the bank, but no players anymore to spend on. We will have now to rely on youth, got 3-4 very promising coming through.
  5. AUGUST - SEASON 2019-20 Starting the month with a defeat in a cup, followed by wins in the league, has become a club trademark Made a small tactical adjustment on my 4132 after the Trophée des Champions 1-3 defeat, and it seems I am conceded less goals. Lyon and PSG are here too and the race will be tough. In Champions League, we got Juve, Hannover and Ajax,. The Old Lady is very likely to take 1st place, and the fight for the 2nd will be very open.

  7. Thanks for following! The original challenge is still to be completed, which is winning a trophy with a team of only Bretons, or club homegrown. Money made from offloading all non-Breton talents has already been invested in developing training and youth facilities, as well as youth network. I have signed as well almost any decent Bretons, sometimes paying ridiculous transfer fees. and I meant left back, DL.
  8. COMPETITIONS - SEASON 2018-19 Stade Brestois (29) and FC Lorient (56) will join Stade Rennais FC (35), EA Guingamp (22) and FC Nantes (44) in Ligue 1 next season. For the first time in history, there will be 5 Breton clubs competing in Ligue 1. One will line up only Breton or home-grown players...
  9. We did it but did not bottle up the champagne in the Coupe de France semis!
  10. MAY - SEASON 2018-19 We developed a bad habit to start the month poorly with another exit this time in the Coupe de France semi-final at home against Reims, no cup this year for us. But things continued to go unexpectedly well in Ligue 1, and we won our 4 last matches, finishing French Champions against all odds. The team secured the league win in an empty stadium in Monaco, with 3 matches in hand. Would have preferred to win it at home in front of a full crowd, but well won't complain! STADE RENNAIS FOOTBALL CLUB, KAMPION FRAÑS 2019!!! The challenge continues with an interesting pre-season where a dozen of players should leave to turn the team into a full Brittany-born and Home-Grown at Club players for next season. Tactically we will move from a 4141 DM wide to a 4132 DM axial as we will have not much quality on the wings. Recruitment wise, we will need to bring in a DG(L), a DC, a DM, one or two CMs and 2 Strikers , 6-7 players in total. Hope it will not unbalanced the team too much.
  11. APRIL - SEASON 2018-19 We screwed up and missed our Coupe de la ligue final. I thought we would take them into the extra-time, but a very late goal on 90' + 4 spoilt it. Very disappointing. We recovered well in the league, and also qualified for the Coupe de France semi-final. Same as first team, the U19 lost in final... there is definitely a curse on us! Reims, from Champagne will visit us for the Coupe de France semis and then we have 4 matches to take at least 2 points to be crowned "Kampion Frañs 2019".
  12. Just lost in the Coupe de La Ligue final, 1-2 on 90'+4... the curse continues...
  13. MARCH - SEASON 2018-19 Chelsea was too good for us as expected. A good draw in Paris to keep them at safe distance. Tuchel was sacked and replaced by Wenger. A very exciting month ahead with a "Coupe de la ligue" final against Bordeaux, in Bordeaux. Then Lyon in "Coupe de France" quarters, followed by the the reception of l'OM. The month will concluded with a Breton derby against EA Guingamp. We have the chance to win the first "Coupe de la Ligue" in the club history, and first trophy since 1971. IRL, in 2009, Rennes reached the Coupe de France final for the fourth time in its history. In the final, Rennes faced Breton rival EA Guingamp and was the heavy favourite. Despite taking the lead in the second half, however, Rennes was defeated 2–1 after Guingamp scored two goals in a ten-minute span. In 2013, Rennes reached the Coupe de la Ligue final and lost to St. Etienne 1-0. In 2014, Rennes made the Coupe de France final and once again their opponent was EA Guingamp. In a tense final, Rennes lost the match to their fierce rivals 2–0. Let's hope the curse is broken and that we bring the cup to our most famous fan.
  14. @deltablue thanks! ...March update coming soon...
  15. FEBRUARY - SEASON 2018-19 Another prolific month with a qualification in the "Coupe de France" against rivals from Brest and a difficult qualification in extra-time against the Rangers. MARCH SCHEDULE: Our adventures in the Europa League are likely to stop as Chelsea may be a step too high for us. Other key match in March will be the ""Coupe de France" against SC Schiltigheim from National 2 (4th div.)
