  1. Glad you are enjoying it! Been a fun journey so far, exciting to see so many prospects growing so quickly! Thanks for that catch, fixed it!
  2. Le Mans FC - Season 5 - 2022/23 League Table: A great first year in Ligue 1. We started off the season well, and had some big victories over some of our lower table rivals to propel us into mid-table, and we managed to hang in there the whole season. One of our star strikers got a broken leg and missed most of the season, which caused us to slump in the middle of the season, but we hung in there! No cup runs of note. We've managed to lock almost everyone down to a long contract, with the exception of our LB, and he may be leaving to PSG soon. Hoping for a similar result next year, more mid-table obscurity will suit me just fine! Squad: Solid year for the whole team, really outperformed. With one of our 2 main strikers going down for most of the season, our backups really filled in big time. Arnaud Agnide (YP02A) - Another fantastic year from my front-man, had to do it alone this year without Thomas and Traore (for most of the season). Won the European Golden Boy Award! Also signed a new contract, so hopefully he will lead our line for many years to come! Riad Bekkar (YP02C) - Stepped up big time in the absence of Traore! Denis Vincent (YP01B) - Rock for me in the midfield, and played a good bit of RB for me as well. Dembo Jeannin (YP03A) - Slotted straight in once he turned 16, been great, but will be subject to big bids this summer and he refuses to sign a new contract. Transfers: Wilfried Thomas (YP01A) is the only one here. He had a good first season with Rennes, but didn't play much. If only he had stayed with me. Finances: Good first season, managed to build up enough to get the board to agree to a youth and training facilities upgrade! Youth Intake: Another good bunch this year! Great looking CM, ST, and GK!

  3. Le Mans FC - Season 4 - 2021/22 League Table: Champions and Promotion!!! Wow, this team clicked in such a big way this year. I took a big gamble and decided not to sell Wilfried Thomas. He received big bids from PSG and Marseille in the summer, including around a 7M big with a 50% future profit clause from PSG, but I turned it down hoping he would help guide us to promotion. And how does he repay that? By getting injured for 2 months right at the start of the season! But my other two strikers stepped up huge, and when Wilfried came back, we had a strike force that would go on to win us promotion! I have now lost Wilfried on a free to Rennes in Ligue 1, who barely even survived, so it'll be a tough season for us next year. Squad: So many good performances, our strikers were the real standouts here, but we had consistent performances all over the pitch this year. Arnaud Agnide (YP02A) - What a standout performance, the second he turned 16 and was eligible to play he slotted straight in. Led the league in goals this season. Have him locked down for a couple more years, but he refuses to sign a new contract. Wilfried Thomas (YP01A) - Not much else to say about this lad, he has been a fantastic servant to us. I had hoped that with our good performances he would sign a new contract, but he was destined to move on I suppose. Will miss his dominance. Won Ligue 2 player of the year for 2021. Moving on a free to Rennes. Boubakar Traore (YP02B) - Another youth who slotted in the second he turned 16. Just immense, I hope him and Arnaud will lead our strikeforce to stability in L1 now that Wilfried is gone. But he also refuses to sign a new contract. Transfers: Just one leaving on a free, and soon to be Wilfried Thomas on that list as well. Finances: Did okay, lost more money this year due to staff salaries (which are more than my player salaries...), but I imagine L1 has a much better TV deal in store for us. Our Youth Facilities upgrade finished, and as soon as we have the cash we will try for the next level. Youth Intake: Yet another golden generation. Some interesting looking players in this years intake, including a CB and GK that would slot straight in if they were 16. Dang you French rules.

  4. Le Mans FC - Season 3 - 2020/21 League Table: Such a great season, started off really struggling to find wins. But once our youth started to get revved up we really started finding some more late season form. Crucial wins against the teams I came up with and a lot of surprise results against teams we had no business beating. Not much else to speak about though, no cup runs of note. Best Eleven: Our youth really started making an impact for us this year. They are doing a great job for us in the midfield and up front, but we are really struggling to keep goals out. If we can get one or two good youth going at the back, I feel like we will click into Ligue 1 quickly. Nkosinathi Faissoil (YP00C) - Really starting to look good, but more meh results from him on the field. Had a long term injury near the end of the season, and he is getting constant bids from L1 teams. Going to either lose him this window to a bid or keep him and lose him on a free. Bedi Mareval (YP00A) - Really stepped up his game this year, and has also been receiving bids. Another who I will likely lose on a free next summer. Denis Vincent (YP01B) - A new face who was great for us in midfield as soon as he slotted in. Wilfried Thomas (YP01A) - Won everything there was to win (except for any trophies) on a personal level. Multiple player of the months, player of the year, top goalscorer of the year, top assist man of the year. Has interest from PSG and all the top clubs in France, and he refuses to sign a new contract. Bar a huge bid, I intend to use him next season in the hopes that he helps me make the jump up to L1, even though I know I will likely lose him on a free. Transfers: Just one leaving on a free, nothing to note. Next year will have a lot more activity I imagine with youth leaving. :( Finances: Great year for the finances. The TV deal from L2 really gave us a huge boost. We were able to continue to improve our coaching and recruitment, and we were even able to start construction on a new youth training ground. Youth Intake: Dubbed a golden generation, as they all are, but this truly looks like one. Some much needed help on the back line finally arrives.

  5. Le Mans FC - Season 2 - 2019/20 League Table: Playoffs and promotion! I honestly was expecting a mirror of last season with practically the same squad, but our up and coming young striker really found us some form late in the season and we managed to just squeak through! Best Eleven: No real standouts this year, except for the aforementioned Wilfried Thomas! We were struggling at the beginning, but after an injury he made his way into the side and really found us some great form! Nkosinathi Faissoil (YP00C) - Has developed well, but just isn't coming through with good performances, despite my many efforts. Bedi Mareval (YP00A) - Another who has developed to the point where he is "better" than my starters, but getting inferior results. Transfers: Nothing this year. Finances: Another bad year on this front, we are losing money quickly! Hopefully Ligue 2 will be kinder to us. Youth Intake: Looks good, ought to have some good youngsters from this group! Only bad thing is three of the four top regens here are best up top, where I already have some strength.

  6. Le Mans FC - Season 1 - 2018/19 Le Mans is known for it's racing heritage. My goal with this challenge is to overshadow this legendary racing town with the best young football club in the world. Youngsters, start your engines! My Manager League Table: Great first season. I honestly expected us to be fighting hard to relegation, but we managed to stay right around mid-table most of the year. Expecting to be here for a few seasons until some of our promising youngsters get up and going. Squad: My strikers and wingers were really the standouts for me this year. One youngster I had from the beginning managed to break into the squad near the end of the season. Nkosinathi Faissoil (YP00C) - Looks good and had some good games when he started near the end of the campaign! Transfers: Nothing of note this year, other than a few players at the beginning I didn't need. Finances: Not looking too good, but our prize money for the league position should help. Every place higher you get is an additional 30k. Youth Intake: Looks good, ought to have some good youngsters from this group!

  7. KV Turnhout - Season 3 Review (2019/2020) League Table (1st Phase) | League Table (2nd Phase) | Promotion Playoff Final | Squad Stats | Transfers | Existing Youth Check-In Competitions Proximus League : 1st Cofidis Cup : 7th Round Season Review Another solid season to keep moving up! The competition in this league was very similar to the previous division, and I was able to boss possession and get many favorable results because of this. Also was a very light league in terms of games played, so most of my players had a very healthy season, with us only playing once a week, or sometimes only once every other week. I'm worried that the tactical approach I've used will struggle to find results next season due to the much larger increase in competition I will be facing in the top division. However, our youth has made fantastic progress and I feel a few of them are now ready to perform at the level required in the top division. There are quite a few positions that will struggle though. Players of the Season Jens Segers (YP01e) - Our breakout player of the year for sure. My starting RB the previous season was my best player, but Jens was progressing well and I thought I would give him a shot. He started great and never had a dip in form. Will definitely be first team for many seasons. Hoping to hang on to him. 8 assists and averaged almost 5 tackles a game. Christopher Thonnes (YP00) - Had a better season this time around, as he continues to progress. Didn't receive any offers for his this season, but I'm more than happy to hang on to him. He has also now become my team's captain. Doesn't contribute as much going forward as my other wing, but is better defensively. Hannes Ceulemans (YP01a) - Another breakout performance from a player I just intended to give a few starts here and there. Started off great and just kept on trucking along. Have really high hopes for him, but some bigger teams have started to sniff around, so I'm not sure how long he will stay. Youth Intake Not great, the better players from this intake occupy positions I've already got good candidates in (bar the ST). Hopefully a couple of them will turn out great and fit in to the first team though. Only tagged a couple of players this year. Bo Lenaerts (YP03a) - Finally get a striker, appears to favor a little more towards the attacking midfield role, but I will definitely be training him to develop as a striker as I need one desperately. Samuele Criscuolo(YP02b) - Promising left winger with a good bit of initial quickness. Got loads of talent at this position though, so unsure if he will make it in the first team. Season 4(2020/21) Goals * Survive! The competition will be much fiercer. * Continue to give youth more and more appearances. * Continue work on improving finances.
  8. KV Turnhout - Season 2 Review (2018/2019) League Table (Regular Season) | League Playoff Table | Squad Stats | Transfers | Existing Youth Check-In | Best Eleven Competitions Derde Klasse : 1st Cofidis Cup : 6th Round Season Review We had a heck of a season. Started brilliantly, and I expected to have a downturn early due to picking up some crucial injuries to my attacking players. However, my youth players were able to fill in and get the job done for us. We ended up with one loss, and played some attractive football along the way, which is great to see at this level. Really going for a focus on possession, and even though we are having some trouble converting chances (need a new striker desperately), we are creating a bundle of them whilst keeping hold of the ball as well. Also had a decent run in the cup, although you get no prize money until the latter rounds, so we made nothing off of this. Due to this, our finances are getting more and more drab, so hopefully moving up a league will help us with that. Also, our initial youth prospect Thonnes has drawn in a couple of bids that I was able to negotiate up to around 250k (for science, but subsequently turned down), so if things get too dire (close to sacking), I may have to move him along for my sake . Anyway, looking forward to what next season holds! Players of the Season Yagouba Diallo-Lauber - Had a great season from the right wing, play him at RB, but he moves forward a good bit. Didn't play well last season, but was a star this one! 7 assists and 7 PoM! Michiel Clyncke - Our star wideman with another solid season, 14 goals and 6 assists. Struggled with some injuries for a couple months near the beginning, but didn't miss too much thankfully. David Olensky - One of our two midfielders who were great for us this season. Both helped greatly with keeping possession with great passing %. Daniel Owusu - Our other key midfielder, provided some great tackling as well. Youth Intake Not as good as last year, but got a couple of good looking CBs (not a position I particularly am hurting for), who will hopefully get some chances next season. Alexis Teruel (YP02a) - Looks great defensively, albeit a little slow. Looks great though, will likely take a few seasons to really break into the lineup. Ervis Halilaj (YP02b) - The other promising CB, a lot more well rounded than the other. This is good, as I normally run a defensive CB and a ball playing CB. Should be a good pairing. Simon Meeus (YP02c) - Looks alright, has a decent set of initial attributes, hopefully can train him to play MC as well as AMC. Dirk Helleputte (YP02d) - Good dribbling, pacy left winger. Not a position I'm hurting for, but looks promising. Christopher Thonnes (YP00) - Is now my first choice LB, looks immense already and he continues to grow. Excited to see what he accomplishes next season. As I said prior, he is getting bids already. Mohammed Bah (YP01c) - Moved into my starting GK spot from day 1 and played the full season. Is progressing well and hopefully will continue. Season 3(2019/20) Goals * Respectable results to renew contracts. Only one relegation, so I'm confident we can stay up. * Continue to give youth more and more appearances. * Work on improving finances.
  9. KV Turnhout - Season 1 Review (2017/2018) League Table | League Playoff Table | Squad Stats | Transfers | End of Season Awards | League Positions Graph Competitions Derde Klasse : 3rd Cofidis Cup : 4th Round Season Review Shockingly the season started off fairly well, considering I lost my star striker (leaving me with only one striker) due to free agency. This also left me with only 16 players. However, the first friendly was a strong win against Stade de Reims. We would go on to start the season strong, going on a couple of convincing unbeaten runs. We closed out the first stage of the season with 4 wins in a row to help us make it into the playoffs. However, we just didn't have what it took against the top sides in this round to make it through. One of our fellow newcomers to the league RWDM had it out for us in particular, beating us 4 times in as many meetings through the season (including the playoff round). They did not get promoted either (only one side per year does ) so I have a feeling this will be a strong rivalry for us. All in all, we were incredibly lucky with injuries and quite a few results, so I'm really hoping just to stay in the top half again next season while we wait for youth to get some experience. Players of the Season Daniel Owusu - Definitely our player of the year. Provided much needed stability in the midfield with passing and tackling. Also supplied 1 goal and 8 assists. Michiel Clyncke - Our star wideman, provided 14 goals and 21 assists. Rawley Rozendaal - Our other wideman, provided 7 goals and 16 assists. Youth Intake Pretty impressed with the quality, should provide some good cover, and have some good looking players for the future. However, not overly impressed with the look of any strikers, which is where I definitely need a good replacement. Hannes Ceulemans (YP01a) - Wow, this midfielder has some great overall starting stats, looking forward to playing him and seeing him improve next season. Danny Eekman (YP01b) - A pacy winger with a good personality, have a feeling he will be a starter within a season or two. Will get a decent number of appearances next season. Mohammed Bah (YP01c) - Nice starting stats on this GK. Will slot into the starting role next season, as he already looks on par with my current starter. Mathias Devos (YP01d) - First AMC in the squad, hoping to start him some next season in my preferred 4-2-3-1 (couldn't run it this season due to no AMC). Jens Segers (YP01e) - Fast and defensively strong RB. A position I've already got some depth in, but looks to be an incredibly promising player. Christopher Thonnes (YP00) - My 1 initial youth prospect has grown leaps and bounds since the start, has just about cemented his place in the starting lineup already, and looks like he will continue to grow. Season 2 (2018/19) Goals * Top-half finish * Begin to give our first batch of youth players first team action
  10. Giving this a shot! Background Club Information Profile Part 1 Christopher Thonnes (YP00) Starting this in 2017, as Belgium has a league restructuring in 2016 which prevents new clubs from coming up. Looks to be a good start, as the youth facilities are great compared to other clubs in the division. Have 18 players in the squad to start, one being a decent looking initial youth prospect. We'll see how it goes!
  11. Tonbridge - Dibond Season in review: Had a decent starting team, and picked up a few players that didn't really make too much of an impact. Fortunately, the striker I did start with, Tommy Whitnell, got me a ton of goals. Sat around mid-table almost all season until the last 5 or 6 games of the season and went on a run to jump into the playoff places in the last game of the season. Won the first round, but was dropped out in the final in a 5-1 thrashing by Dartford. Also had a couple of good cup runs so the finances don't look too bad....yet.

  13. BEDFORD TOWN The Eagles! 2014-15 - Blue Square Bet North The season started off a little inconsistent, and I was having some serious injury problems. As the season went on, the injury problems continued but we managed to hang around playoff contention. However, a little past the halfway point we finally found our top form and managed to make the top spot ours from there on out. League Table|Positions We had good cup runs and made it to the 2nd round of the FA cup where we lost to L1 Tranmere. In the Trophy we made it to the 3rd round before losing to BSP Tamworth. Without these runs our finances would look in dire straits, as if they aren't already! Finances|Transfers|Squad Key Players Shane Birtles - Once again my main man up front, he was a significant reason we are going up, scoring 25 in 44 apps! James Clarke - My creative influence in the midfield, bagging 7 goals and 7 assists in the league. Sam Saunders - My rock at the back (and occasionally the midfield)! The bad thing is that I will not be able to keep these players nor most of the rest of my team due to wage demands. With a significant portion of my players all requesting 500-600+ I am going to have to gut out the squad and start from scratch for the new challenge ahead of us.

  14. BEDFORD TOWN The Eagles! 2013-14 - Blue Square Bet North Well, after a terribly tough start to the season where we couldn't get a result to save our lives, we managed to pull it together in the latter half and save ourselves from relegation! League Table|Positions I had literally no expectation of being able to stay up after the start to the season, but fortunately the guys managed to turn it around. With that being said there were no cup runs at all with us losing in the first matches of both cups, which has put us deep in the financial hole. Finances|Transfers|Squad Key Players Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone really stand out except for my one striker who kept us afloat. Shane Birtles Now I'm off to renovate the squad again and hopefully have a little more luck this time!
