    [FM19] The Amerigo Vespucci Diaries

    February was another perfect month, including dishing out a thrashing to a South American giant in the Libertadores which left us top of the league and the Libertadores table looking like this

    I don't think I'm giving much away in saying that the next country is Chile, so I'm thinking any of Colo-Colo, Universidad Chile or Universidad Catolica. Colo-Colo would be my first choice though

    So, obviously, I wasn't able to get a job in the next country (I had an interview but didn't get the job), so I remain with Atletico Nacional for the First Phase of the Colombian Primera Division, and I'll re-evaluate the situation after that.

    We had a perfect preseason, winning every game, and picking up another trophy too and added three players, two of them first teamers, one a youngster signed by my DoF First the youngster, Niño, a striker De La Fuente is a right back and Elias is a central midfielder

    I'm only halfway, and there's plenty of opportunity for it to go wrong. Hoping to finish preseason tonight

    The final proved rather easier than expected, despite playing against Junior and with that we are Champions

    We drew the first leg of the semi final away from home, but finished the job at home in some style and we'll face Junior over two legs in the final, this time with the first leg at home

    We won both legs of the Quarter Final, and advance to the two legged semi final

    We finished the league with a win, and duly completed the job in the Cup to win my first trophy in Colombia and that left the league table looking like this, with the playoffs to come

    October was a pretty decent month, despite suffering my first league defeat in Colombia, and I think we're going to win the Colombian Cup and we have also guaranteed first place in the Closing Stage table too, although as discussed earlier, that doesn't mean we're Champions, it means we're in the playoffs to decide the League Champion. I've yet to discover whether there's an advantage to finishing top. I hope so

    It was the 5-1 win at Deportivo Cali

    September was a massive month, and we came through it really well, dropping only two points in the league, and we reached the Cup Final too (and I bet no-one will guess which game we had a player red carded in with the score at 0-0. It wasn't the Tolima or Jaguares games) We end the month 6 points clear at the top

    Thanks guys. Yes, most of the South American leagues are complex and convoluted, but as far as I know, only Colombia has two champions per season, and that champion can finish as low as 8th in the overall table due to the end of season playoff. I'm hoping to top the table in the regular season, and then go on and win the Championship Playoffs, but as long as we win the Playoffs, it'll be job done, although if nothing suitable turns up, I'll stick around and try to be next year's first 'champion' too.

    Unbeaten in August but two league draws sees us drop to third, although we do have games in hand

    A perfect first month in charge (I took over after the first friendly of the month) and we sit top of the table
