  1. So this guy just came through my youth academy and is rated as the best prospect of the bunch. The thing is, I don't feel his attributes match his AML position. He's a great passer/technician and it seems to me I should retrain him. Where do you guys see him playing?
  2. Hey all - I've been away for ages, blame Red Dead Unexpectedly got back into my Taranto file this last week and have made it to Serie A. Unfortunately didn't remember to take screenshots as I guess I see the uploading of reports too time consuming now so I'll just drop in and give you snippets. Know this doesn't qualify me for the challenge but know that we're doing nicely, I'm already very fond of the file and I can see the rest of you are doing very nicely too. @rlipscombe you beat me to Serie A by a season, great job! The influx of cash is very, very welcome. Enjoy and good luck, eve
  3. Hello chaps, just to let you know I'm still alive, just been away the last week. We're going well and currently top in December. Nice to see some new faces in here too - good luck!
  4. Season 1 (2019/20) | Serie C2/C Squad | Best XI | Transfers | Results 1 | Results 2 End of Season Awards | Finances Average Att: 2,944 After a solid enough start we slipped into a real slump forcing me to change our approach completely. Out went our possession-first style and in came a slow tempo, attacking free-form effort. We reaped the rewards immediately, shot up the table and ended up 7th, qualifying for the playoffs. Despite easing past Virtus Francavilla 3-2 in the first round, our 2-2 draw away at Carrarrese saw us dumped out on the nonsense higher seed rule. Still,
  5. Just spent my entire budget on this guy as soon as the January window opened. Have to say I'm delighted. He's got huge potential and we're lacking a main striker really. This came from a recommendation from my DoF. 100% recommend asking them for transfer recommendations. Hadn't used that function before but he gave me five very good options. Hoping for big things here.
  6. Nice work, looking forward to seeing your progress @Biscotti! Here's the majority of our results this season. We're currently sat in 11th. Not sure I've ever lost so many home games in a row! Thank goodness we turned it around, with the 1-0 win at rivals Catania, a particular highlight.
  7. How's everyone getting on? After a wobbly start at Taranto we've gone on a great run of four wins and a loss to push us up the table. There's only about four places in Serie C that don't get in the playoffs or relegation spots so by maintaining this form we'll make the promotion playoffs. Think we're a long way off the quality needed to go up but I'm enjoying it so far. The 3-5-2 I'm playing is gradually coming together too. Will post some screenshots later.
  8. Beginnings - Taranto FC - Serie C/C Domestic League History My Profile Club Overview So I'm starting up again and as you'll have seen it's a return to a favourite of mine. I think it was maybe 10 years ago that I had a Taranto file that ran until the 2020s (long file back then!) and I loved every minute of it. I think in the end the file got corrupted so I never won any major trophies, though we did establish ourselves in Serie A and brought through a couple of great Italian talents - Ciro Brunetti (the next Totti) for one. But as great as the file was, it always felt
  9. Back where it all began, where my username came from, back at the Erasmo Iacovone! (full update to come in due course)
  10. So I've decided to put this on hold for a bit and try a file in Italy. Much as I like Portugal I've had a real desire to fire up a new file now that I've got more experience of the lower leagues. Will update when I've picked a team and done my holidaying.
  11. Not a terrible start but we'll need to improve if we're to make the top two again this season. We so nearly clung on against Benfica B by the way. Reduced to 10 men 5 minutes in but grabbed the first goal. Conceded twice in the last 10 minutes
  12. The four divisions of the third tier have been drawn for the new season and not only do we have Benfica B again, we also have Real who came 3rd last season as well as Benfica CB, who have just been relegated from the second flight. Fully expect this season to be our toughest yet so I'll need to make some quality signings on that front in the summer. Will drop them into this post as and when they're made. Rodrigo Parreira (AMRL) - my new right winger. Can cover on the left if needs be but has impressive attributes for this standard. Should do well. Serginho (DM/MC) - we lacked a bit
  13. Not entirely sure why my screenshots look so tiny. If anyone has any tips, do let me know!
