  1. Oh man.... You made it Congrats! And it took less than 100 years in the end...
  2. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 20 Season 20 – 2038 – Swedish Premier Division League/cup: Absolutely dominant in the league, much more so than last year. We were unbeaten until the last game of the season and ended up with 2 defeats and 1 loss from 30. A reasonably routine cup win made it a double. Europe 2037-38: We got Porto in the 1stKO round. They are a tough CL team these days (as are Benfica), but we edged through on away goals thanks to a narrow and nervy 1-0 home win in the second leg. A close quarter final tie against Dortmund was also decided on away goals, but this time in their favour. Dortmund went on to win the CL, so I can’t be too unhappy about that. Europe 2038-39 (fixtures): A tough group draw again, as we got Benfica and Atletico Madrid, as well as Club Brugge. After the first few games, we beat Brugge away but could only draw at home with Atletico and Benfica, so I wasn’t too optimistic about our chances. But a great – albeit somewhat undeserved – 2-1 win away to Benfica and a more than deserved draw at Atletico saw us go through as group winners, although we didn’t get the easiest draw in the KO round, being up against Barcelona. Best players: Fredrik Roos 33a (DRC) and Robin Utsten 34a (MR) wanted to leave but have now both signed new contracts. Youngsters Abdi Deng 35d (MRC/AMC) and Anton Eriksson 36d (MRL) have now become key players for us. Youth watch: Because of our dominance in the league I gave quite a few youngsters some game time, with Niclas Jönsson 36c (M/AMLC) and Victor Sundström 36a (MC) impressing the most. Youth intake: not too exciting, but Jens Jönsson 38a (AMRL) is an interesting option on the wings, and Daniel Gustafsson 38b (DMC) will be retrained as center back to provide much needed cover in that position now that Forsbald is getting old. Transfers: Henrik Gustafsson 24a (AMLC/ST) leaves us on a free, after being a first choice striker for a good 12 years, with 174 goals in 335 league apps; a true legend. Facilities: maxed out training and youth facilities, and moved to a new stadium Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  3. Nice work! Your top scorer has 2 for finishing!! You could probably play any of your midfielders in striker positions, they might do better than some of the current lot - although Cacic looks pretty good.
  4. OMG you did it!! Congrats!! Does this beat winning the euros with San Marino?
  5. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 19 Season 19 – 2037 – Swedish Premier Division League: AIK ran us very close this season, but we managed to retain the title with a record-breaking 73 points. Cup: Finally won it this year, beating Halmstad 3-1 in the final Europe 2036-37: Two cracking games against Juventus in the first KO round saw us narrowly endge through after a memorable 2-1 away win in Italy. FC Bayern – who went on to win the CL – were far too strong for us in the quarters, even though we did manage to narrowly beat them at home. Europe 2037-38 (fixtures): We got a very tough draw of Atletico, Arsenal and Nice, but performed admirably, snatching several draws to finish the group stage unbeaten and, thanks to a snatch-and-grab 2-0 away win at Atletico, they were eliminated and we topped the group. Best players: Fredrik Roos 33a (DRC) and Hannes Pettersson 30a (DRL,MR) are playing well, and Robin Utsten 34a (MR) has become a key attacking player. Youth watch: Fred Karlsson 36b (MC/AMC/ST) from last year’s intake is fast becoming our best striker, and I hope we can hang on to him for a while. Abdi Deng 35d (MRC/AMC) has also progressed very well and is close to being our best center mid. Youth intake: not as strong as last year, but I’m happy to get a good fullback prospect in Marcus Eriksson 37a (DR/AMR), since I could really do with more depth in that position. Fredrik Berg 37b (DMC/MC/AMC) may be retrained to give me another center back option, and Daniel Göransson 37c (MC/AMR/ST) offers a versatile attacking option for the future. Transfers: Shifting out older players but not getting much money for them Finances: strong Facilities: training + youth facilities improved; new stadium almost done Next season’s aim: Title + CL KOs Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  6. @Makoto Nakamura Great to see this back up, definitely a mesmerising challenge, to say the least I do hope you can break through the Oberliga wall eventually! Do you still have the croatian leagues enabled? I think if you disable them (at least until you climb up the leagues), this may stop the croatian teams from poaching your players as much - otherwise it may even be a bit over the top, since you have just the german and croatian leagues enabled, you get the poaching from both sets of teams... And in terms of tactics, I've found that changing the mentality to cautious and dropping the defensive line if you have slow defense can help stabilise things a lot; might be worth a go (also, this seems to work very well with knap's ready-made tactics)
  7. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 18 Season 18 – 2036 – Swedish Premier Division League: We were better this season but AIK and Djurgårdens gave us a good run for our money. We managed to win it on the last day by thrashing bottom-of-the-table Trelleborg 6-1, with both AIK and Djurgårdens accumulating more than 60 points, which would have been enough to win the title in most seasons. Cup: A rather annoying end to a good journey, we easily made the final but couldn’t find the way past a stubborn Djurgårdens at home. They scored in extra time but we managed to equalise with a few minutes left on the clock, before going ahead in the penalty shootout, but then our luck turned, we missed 3 pens in a row and lost the whole thing. Europe 2035-36: We overcame Genk in the 1st KO of the Europa, but rather disappointedly lost to Beskitas in the last 16. I think we had what it takes to beat them and only needed 1 goal at home to go through, but after hitting the woodwork a few times the second leg finished 0-0 and we were out. Europe 2036-37 (table): We got Man City, Sevilla and RB Salzburg in the CL group, and I thought we were a good bet for 3rdgiven that we beat Salzburg before, got knocked out by City last year, and Sevilla won the CL several seasons back. The crucial games turned out to be away and home against City. In the away game, we went 2-1 down and a man down with 20 to go, but managed to score a dramatic equalizer in the 94thminute. We managed to beat Sevilla away and Salzburg home & away to leave us needing a home draw against City in the last game to qualify. In the mirror image of the away leg we went 2-1 down and 1 man down, but equalized with a VAR penalty on 68 minutes and held on to go through to the knockout stages! Best players: Fredrik Roos 33a (DRC) has become the standout player and is now wanted by major European clubs, but we’re hanging on to him for now. Hannes Pettersson 30a (DRL,MR) has also come on leaps and bounds, earning his first Sweden caps in the autumn. Other than that, I’d like to give a special mention to Johan Forsblad 22a (DRC) and Henrik Gustafsson 24a (ST), who are both still regular starters and have by now amassed more than 300 league appearances each for the club. Youth watch: The team is becoming younger overall, as the higher quality of the youth set up over the last few years is starting to tell. Sebastian Bäckström 32b (MC/AMC/ST) and Robin Utsten 34a (WB/MR) have become regular starters, and Johan Ahlqvist 35a (AMC/ST) from last year’s intake is now a rotation option. Squad: this is how we line up, defense used to be our strong part but the last few intakes have been very attack focused, so we’re actually looking better stocked up-front going forward, and I could do with a center back or two to replace the ageing Forsblad. Youth intake: A great intake as far as I am concerned – the star ratings are probably similar to what we usually get, but given the improving squad quality even the 1.5* CA players look very decent, and crucially there are a few great personalities in there as well, which I could do with to push my squad towards greater determination and professionalism. Most of the talent is in attack and on the wings, with Victor Sundström 36a (MC), Fred Karlsson 36b (MC/AMC/ST), Niklas Jönsson 36c (AMC),and Anton Eriksson 36d (AMRL) looking like they could really strengthen the team’s creativity and attacking bite for many years ahead. Transfers: I decided to cash in on Henrik Björklund 30c (AMLC) since he more or less stopped progressing, and am in the process of shipping out some of the older players still Finances: looking good after the CL cash came in Facilities: training + youth facilities improved; new stadium still being built Next season’s aim: Title + 3rdor higher in the CL group Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  8. What @Hovis Dexter said; I'd also add upgrade coaching and recruitment but not too fast, otherwise you run out of money and the board will sell your best players anyway. Also try to improve the squad personality by signing staff with good personalities, and keeping around low-ability players who have high determination etc.
  9. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 17 Season 17 – 2035 – Swedish Premier Division League: We were fighting it out with Elfsborg for top spot throughout the season. A change of tactic saw us pull away in August, only to lose back-to-back 3-1 at home to Djurgarden and 7-1 (!!!) away to recently promoted Kalmar, meaning we were neck and neck by end of September. But a narrow 1-0 win against Elfsborg, despite my players missing 2 penalties in that game, ensured we pulled away again and secured the title with 2 games to go. Cup: Inconsistent again, losing to Halmstad on penalties in the quarters. Europe 2034-35: Despite topping the group, we drew Man City in the first KO round, and they had too much quality for us, even though the final scoreline was pretty close. Still, a very encouraging campaign, especially as Liverpool, who we beat in the group stage, finished runners up in the end. Europe 2035-36: Only a Europa league place for us this year, but we were seeded 1stand topped the group containing Zenit, Young Boys and Sparta Prague. Best players: The transformation towards youth continues, with me shipping out many former first team regulars to give a few youngsters some game time. Johan Axvret 29b (GK) continues to do well, had a great season in goal, but the performer of the season has to be Fredrik Roos 33a (DRC), who is attracting the interest of the likes of Bayern Munich. Let’s hope we can hold on to him for a few seasons at least. Youth watch: Plenty more talent coming through this year. My regular right wingers were underperforming, so I promoted Robin Utsten 34a (WB/MR) from the U19s and he has done well, while Fredrik Persson 33b (MC/AMC/ST) is becoming one of our best midfielders. Erik Hägg 29a (ML) finally broke into the first team and looks like he might be finally fulfilling his potential, with 10 goals and 5 assists in 24 apps. Youth intake: Not too much depth but pretty decent personalities, and again some promising attackers, this time in the central positions. Johan Ahlqvist 35a (AMC) will be retrained as a striker, and Tony Boman 36b (AMC) as center mid, while Måns Juhlin 35c (MC/AML/ST) is earmarked for the left midfield slot. Abdi Deng 35d (MRC/AMC) could potentially provide another center mid option. Transfers: quite a few of the former first teamers have been shipped, but no forced sales so far Finances: the facility upgrades have taken a big chunk out of the savings, but we’re still looking good overall Facilities: keep improving training and youth facilities, and a £26m new stadium (not named after me ) is on the way Next season’s aim: Title + 3rdor higher in the CL group Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  10. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 16 Season 16 – 2034 – Swedish Premier Division League: After last season’s dominance I expected a fairly easy ride in the league, and tried to mix it up a bit - experiment tactically and give some youngsters some game time. Big mistake. Come the end of the season, I was playing the trusted tactic from last year and all the more experienced players, trying to scrape through after a distinctly average first 3/4 of the year. We had a very tough run-in but managed to remain unbeaten and secure a crucial gritty 2-1 home victory against title rivals Elfsborg. Going into the last game, we were level on points with AIK and Elfsborg but way ahead on goal difference, and just had to beat bottom of the table Öskarhamns to surely secure the title. We proceeded to royally "FM" it up, my right winger getting sent off early in the game, and then grinding out a 0-0 draw only to find out that both AIK and Elfsborg won their comparatively tougher fixtures to push us into third, and Europa league next year. In the end our 13 draws definitely cost us, and I'm hoping for a return to (more) winning ways next year. Btw notice how Malmö needed to escape relegation via a playoff this year. How the mighty have fallen… Cup: Better this year – easily made it to the final, but then were convincingly outplayed by Hammarby on their turf, losing the final 2-0. Europe: Well, who would have thought… Drawn with Liverpool, Monaco and RB Salzburg, I thought I had a decent chance of taking the 3rdEuropa league spot. But we massively exceeded expectations, stating with the first game where we rode our luck but managed to beat Liverpool away 3-2. A double over Monaco (5-1 at home and 1-0 away) sealed the qualification with 2 games to go, and we clinched top spot in the group on the last day with a win over Salzburg. Absolutely no idea how we did it given our crappy league form, I guess other teams playing more attacking against us helps, but still… Best players: Most of the regulars didn’t have their best seasons, but Johan Axvret 29b had a great season in goal, Johan Palm 24c (MR) has regained his starting spot on the right wing, and Anders Carlsson 27c (MRLC) is becoming our best center mid. Youth watch: This was the year where quite a few youths have started breaking through, so I’m hopeful they can shine next season. Fredrik Roos 33a (DRC) from last year’s intake has been the standout performer, making the rightback slot his own. Sebastian Bäckström (MC/ST) has played better than our older, higher rated strikers, and Haidar Haidi 31b (MR/AMR) has benefitted from an injury crisis to show some nice development. Youth intake | Robin Utsten 34a (WB/MR) | Jonas Gunnarsson 34b (MRC) Just two players worth a mention this year, but they’re both wingers which is good since I could do with some more attacking bite and creativity in the team: Transfers: trying to shift the team towards younger prospects, and ship out some of the older players who have stopped improving Finances: still looking good, so a year out of CL shouldn't make too much of a dent Facilities: Building up youth and training facilities, and a stadium expansion is on the way Next season’s aim: Title and a European run Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  11. Damn, I hate it when this happens That's the worst part of the challenge for me, find it much easier to deal with crap results than losing good prospects against my will. I think the only way you can get out of it is improve the finances, other than protesting a bid or two. Annoying that Lillestrom got the player for free rather than compensation, I got 800k for my youngster when he got poached off a non-pro contract; guess Norway has tougher league rules than Sweden by the looks of it...
  12. IFK Eskilstuna – Season 15 Season 15 – 2033 – Swedish Premier Division League: We stepped it up a level this year. Djurgården were giving us a run for our money at the beginning of the season, but we eventually pulled away and despite a dip in form around the euro qualifiers in August, we won the league easily with 4 games to go. Cup: Out to Djugården in the quarters again Europe 2032-33: Finishing top of the euro cup group meant we got a reasonable draw against Steaua in the last 32, with a great 3-0 away win seeing us through. Marseille were too strong for us in the last 16, beating us home and away with a 6-2 aggregate scoreline. Europe 2033-34: We went straight through to the champions playoff but got a tough draw with Olympiakos. We outplayed them at home, but they sneaked in a last-minute away goal to make it a tense 2-1 advantage for the second leg. The second leg was predictably nervy, with me choosing to shut up shop. Both sides hit the post a few times, before Olympiakos made the breakthrough with a VAR penalty in the 79thminute. More drama followed however as our left winger Henrik Björklund 30c got us the away goal in the 88thminute with a 20-yard curler. We hung on and went through on away goals. The group draw was tough, and we finished bottom behind Tottenham, Benfica and Shakhtar, albeit with a respectable 4 points and plenty of money in the bank. Best players: Johan Forsblad 22a (DRC) continues to impress, as does Filip Qvist 28c (MRL). Youth watch: The aforementioned Henrik Björklund 30c (ML/AML) has had a great introduction as a goalscoring inside forward, and Emil Hermansson 32a (AMRC/ST) from last year’s intake has got some game time, but didn’t play very well. Youth intake: Some promising prospects this year, although most are in defensive areas where I’m already well stocked. Fredrik Ross 33a (DC/WBR) looks like a soon-to-be regular at right back, Fredrik Persson 33b (MC/AMC/ST) has good passing stats for a midfielder but could do with better mentals, and Claes Ericson 33c (GK) is yet another highly-rated goalkeeper. Daniel Gustavsson 33d (DRLC) has the top rated PA but terrible personality. Transfers: trying to shift a few oldies, and loans Finances: looking good after the CL, and I go straight to the group stage next year as Sweden has jumped up the euro ranks Facilities: Maxed out coaching and recruitment, and continuing to build up training and youth facilities Next season’s aim: Title Season | League | Pos. | Cup | CL | EL | Top scorer | Top assists | Top rating | Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 | Div 2 S.

  13. @Weiry Thanks a lot, great job! Looks like I need a keeper doesn't it... And happy to hear the striker thing, since I lost Lewandowski I don't think I have anyone decent there anyway
  14. @Weiry Russia will take Lewandowski please. Even though I have no idea why he is playing for Montenegro Did a human player manage it in the past?
