  1. April - June 2021 We looked pretty good early as the start of the season saw us set a club record winning streak. The media claimed to be optimistic about our potential for success and positive about the style we were using. "Unremarkable" was a slight improvement from "unknown," which was the theme of their articles at the start of my career. Magnus Fagernes and Thomas Elsebutangan provided enough goal-scoring to keep us afloat in the league. Oscar Aga returned from a 3-month absence due to a broken ankle to convert 3 penalties in his first two appearances of the season. With slightly more than half of the season remaining, we sat slightly above the 12th place media prediction and on par with the board's mid-table finish . I was encouraged by the board's willingness to fulfill my requests regarding spending more on the academy coaches and adding a first-team coaching position. I chose to hire a dedicated Fitness Coach. I am hoping that he will have a big impact.
  2. January - March 2021 I am excited to kick off my first full season at the club! The board isn't criticizing anything, but they aren't fully convinced either. The pre-season was fairly successful against fairly weak competition. I'm feeling pretty good about the squad dynamics given my relative newcomer status to the club and the amount of turnover on the roster. I'm confident with the makeup of the squad, though I would like to find another GK. My first-choice 11, bench, and tactics... The backroom staff for the start of the season. I'm pretty limited by the club in what I'm allowed, thus the empty spaces.
  3. Thank you! Unfortunately, Omar Bully was becoming a disruption in the locker room, so I sold him before major problems arose. I have managed to hang on to Aga, but he had a torn hamstring when I arrived and suffered a broken ankle during this pre-season.
  4. October - December 2020 I took over with the club in last place in the First Division after 20 games. That gave me 10 games to attempt to save them from relegation. The game against Oygarden was my coaching debut. The team responded well to a new coach, but we hit a slump after the honeymoon period. After being embarrassed on TV against Asane, the club had something to prove and closed the season strong. The victory over Strommen secured our safety. The team actually finished above the media's pre-season prediction (12th) and set a club record for its highest finish. Final Player Stats End of Season Review With finances looking decent and a bit of new sponsorship money found, the board decided to invest in the stadium.

  5. Another Bucky Badger adventure begins. No coaching badges, Sunday League Player. Start unemployed and begin applying. Eventually in October... A welcome from the president... The vision and expectations laid out...
  6. July 2024 Interview Opportunity I declined the offer. I felt it wasn't to walk away from the club to a rival so soon after being promoted. I want a better read on how well Tigres can perform in the First Division. Player Contract Extension Oliveros had begun receiving precontract offers from other clubs. I quickly extended him for 2 years. He has been impressive in training recently and has earned first-team time. Youngster Poached Transfer window recap I'm disappointed to lose these two as it decreases the team's depth. Both signed precontract deals so I negotiated transfer fees. Results & Table The highlight of the month was a draw with rival Millonarios in front of a sell-out crowd. Though Atletico Nacional are top of the table, I am not happy with our performance against them.
  7. June 2024 Performance Review by Board The board seems to be happy with how I'm doing at the midway point of the season. Squad Dynamics Staff Contract Extensions Player Contract Extensions Daza has been inconsistent, but I attribute that primarily to his youth. There have been flashes of brilliance. He has a pretty good personality and a strong work rate so I hope for a lot of improvement from him. Cuero is currently the 3rd choice GK, but coaches say he has been improving rapidly in training. Coaching Course Approved My initial request was denied, but when I argued that it benefitted the club in addition to me, they agreed to take the risk.
  8. May 2024 Colombian Cup A draw in our final game against Deportivo Pasto wasn't enough to continue in the cup. Results & Table An undefeated month in the league saw us climb to mid-table at the end of the First Phase. Considering where we were earlier in the season, I am satisfied with this finish. I'm optimistic for the Second Phase.
  9. April 2024 Although he made a big mistake resulting in the only goal against America de Cali, Vera has performed decently in goal and will continue to receive the starts in league games, minimally. Stiven Oliveros had a solid month and is pushing to take the starting spot at Attacking Mid (AMCL - s) from Ospina, who missed a penalty against America de Cali. Colombian Cup We have been disappointing in the Colombian Cup and are unlikely to qualify for the next round.
  10. Congratulations on the championship win on the final day of the season! Brilliant achievement! I've really enjoyed following your career!
  11. Congratulations on the successful start at Luzern! I hope the 4 necessary wins for promotion come quickly for you.
  12. March 2024 Academy player poached We lost another one. Player contract extension Orozco has become a solid, if unspectacular, player as the MCR - Cental Midfielder (s). It was a very easy contract negotiation. I'm glad he'll continue to be here for the next few years. Results & Tables We're getting plenty of chances, but we are not very good at finishing them. Ceballos - DCL, bpd (d) - is our leading scorer. He has 5 goals, all from set pieces. Ortega was pulled from goal at halftime of the Deportivo Cali game and benched for the final 2 games of the month. Vera performed well in those games and will get a run with the first team in an opportunity to claim the first choice keeper role. Colombian Cup
  13. February 2024 Attendance and Gate Records Set The first sellout crowd helped us to defeat the first place team. Academy player poached Results & Tables The attack is struggling, and while the defense has been playing fairly well, Ortega is not performing at the level we need in goal. We need to turn things around in the cup group soon if we want to have a chance to qualify. Youth Intake Not much to see here. We signed the first seven and Fabio Chacon. Carlos Alberto Monroy is supposed to be the top prospect.
  14. January 2024 My career track Performance Review by Board Squad Dynamics Staff Promotion Since the board added a coaching position to the senior squad, Welington Ortiz was promoted from Head Coach of the U20s. John Cardenas replaced Ortiz, which means we only have 1 more coach than the board would like for the U20s. Discussion about club improvements The president asked my thoughts about improving the payroll budget for the General Manager position. I said I would prefer to see the money spent on improving the training facilities, but he didn't think it would be worth it. However, a few days later I was informed that the scouting range would be increased. Club affiliate link terminated Player contract extension Adrian Santillan joined the club for the Second Phase last year and immediately claimed a starting position as a Central Defender (co). He is adept with both feet and has room to improve as he matures. I'm a bit concerned that he may see us as a stepping stone, but the promotion to the First Division will help with that, hopefully. Captains De Nilson Echeverri continues as captain. Andres Gamboa steps into the vacated role of vice-captain. This season's squad and tactics Current Staff Colombian Cup Results & Table We started league play with a come-from-behind win that was encouraging. The only highlight in the next match was Gilberto Solis scoring in his debut. Relegation is based upon the bottom 2 teams in average points.
  15. Congratulations on the double and consecutive titles!
