  1. Quick update, after a really bad start I wasn't able to turn the ship around. In the last few matches the players were unhappy with me, which led to me getting sacked. But I had a nice few seasons, I'm 100% trying this challenge again. But for the next time I think picking a smaller, not Big5 country. But for now I will follow your youth adventures. Thanks for having me! final league standings (me 18th)
  2. Impressive results, but I'm even more impressed by Palomino, Sakai and De Roon and their physical atributes. The decline is nowhere to be seen. Are you doing any special training sessions over the season, maybe in international break, to keep the physicals that high?
  3. Yeah sure, I think most of the financial issues were caused by the rapid promotion in third tier, everybody got his promotion pay rise of like 30%, then the board took some money to build a stadium So I would assume it's not always that good to get promoted as fast as possible, as long as you aren't RB Leipzig IRL
  4. I guess the range is like 8-15M depending on position at the end of the season
  5. FC Carl-Zeiss Jena Season Review 2022/23 First season in German second tier went pretty good. Despite the odds seeing us dead last we managed to avoid relegation by finishing league in 11th place. Winning the first few matches, we never were in real relegation struggles. Thanks to Halle (promoted together with us last season) and Sandhausen, who both had a really poor season, we only had to avoid relegation playoffs. In the last two matches we could line up some of the youth prospects. At the start of the season I was unsure about our chances against Hamburg and Frankfurt, but we man
  6. I'm currently using a DM pairing and also tried HB together with SVs, what I think is, that the HB stays to deep while attacking, meaning it's harder to recycle posession in some cases, an Anchorman seems to push up a little bit higher in these situations. This doesn't mean, that he is roaming very often (obv. cause of Hold Position) but if there is a need to recycle posession and set up a new attack he comes to help the SVs.
  7. Back in Jena! After some months off, I'm finally going to continue this save. Short recap, we finished 2nd in our first season and got promoted to 2nd tier of German football. Hamburg is back to second tier after one season in Bundesliga, even Frankfurt got relegated, so I expect some heavy losses. BUT with the results of last season, I'm optimistic to avoid relegation, stay in 2. Bundesliga and get the prize money to improve the facilities. That being said, this season we have to play together with Erzgebirge Aue in their stadium, cause our new local stadium (Hans Meyer Stadium) is
  8. @Oakland StomperI'm currently using this one, sometimes I play with a Much Higher DL and SKa cause of Sven Ulreich who's capable of dealing with One-on-ones and I removed the time waste instruction, I usually lower the tempo and switch to shorter passing when matches are close in the 70s and further imo defensive wingers are key, having Jatta left and Narey right, both very hardworking players going up and down their flanks
  9. in some scenarios the attacking mentality leads to risky pressing maneuvers of the central midfielders, that's why I'd decrease the mentality a bit, but I like the high risk direct passing a lot and i think that faster CB are needed, better opponents tend to play one-twos and simply knock out my defense, but to even get into the space where one-twos become a problem, a misplay by one of the CM is needed. So I think I could also fix that by decreasing the mentality
  10. This tactic single-handedly destroyed medium possession based teams I'm currently using it at Hamburg in Bundesliga 2, we are by far the best team in the league, but I wanted to try a different style and tried this 442 Match Stats Osnabrück isn't any good atm but they try to play a vertical tiki taka style, while beating any possession record of German football in recent history they didn't even shoot once Bryan Henning (in Osnabrück he is called Xavi) managed to complete 252 passes in this game which led to a clean 10.0 rating this tactic is doing well atm
  11. nagelsmann is versatile, sometimes playing 2 pure strikers up front but sometimes just playing attacking mids there, I assume tuchel is also doing some kind of tactical tricks atalanta is very straight forward would be interesting to see insights on when to make which tactical switch
  12. In build-up he lines up between both CB without stay wider, if you put a DLPs next to him, he would be a little more advanced, gives you a nice shape to combine your way out of an opponent's high press
  13. I always started with higher DL and much lower LOE, but made some changes during matches were the opposition was very defensive, i pushed the LOE higher and removed Regroup to disrupt their build-up play. But once I've scored the first goal I resetted much lower LOE and Regroup. I see that the players are man marking opposition Fullbacks but this could result in a not-so-compact midfield in some games where the FBs were too passive and the IFs would push up too far too mark them. Shaping up in a 424 formation. This space could then be easily exploited by better opponents. I've thou
