    RKC Waalwijk
  1. Great first season and I love the opening part. Best of luck for season 2.
  2. I think I might challenge for an award this season.
  3. The other reason is that I've been doing academy based squad building for 3-4 seasons now. All the talent is in the team. All the foreign players have long gone.
  4. We're low on this list, purely because we tend to sell to bigger clubs in Europe and a lot of our lesser players tend to go to yo-yo'ing Eredivisie clubs
  5. I took RKC Waalwijk from the Jupiler League to 5 consecutive Eredivisie titles.
  6. Oof. Groan-ingen
  7. Best of luck for the tournament. I am on tenterhooks.
  8. Great start to the season. Looks quite sustainable too!
  9. Oof. Another collapse. Harsh.
  10. RKC Waalwijk End of Aug 2028 Transfer Window The start of 2028/29 season and the board wanted the double (Eredivisie & KNVB Beker) whilst making the Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League. For this, we had a £2.06m wage budget & £126m transfer budget... Results In the Eredivisie, we kicked off our campaign at home to AFC Ajax Amsterdam. In our usual dominance, we seemed to forget to score and were sucker-punched in the middle of the first half. Luckily, returning hero Frans Konus saved our blushes with a second half equaliser in a 1-1 draw. PEC Zwolle were up next and our strikers put them to the sword with Djeremy Wijdenbosch & Thierry Ambrose scoring before half time as we ran out 2-0 winners. Two unconvincing 1-0 wins over Roda JC Kerkade & sc Heerenveen and I was somewhat wary about our chances this year. Until our last game of August... We romped home 5-1 winners against AZ Alkmaar. 3-0 up within 10 mins, courtesy of a Thierry Ambrose brace and a Casey Rutten free-kick. Thierry Ambrose completed his hat-trick just after half time and 17 year old academy graduate Johan Smit celebrated his recent birthday with his first senior goal with just 5 mins to go. - Fixtures - - Table - In the UEFA Champions League adventure, we were put up against FC Barcelona, SL Benfica & Celtic FC . Think we're gonna struggle to get out of the group... We also won the traditional Dutch curtain raiser, the Johan Cryuff Shield, with a 3-0 win over AFC Ajax Amsterdam. Goals from Piet van der Linden, Jeffrey Kooiman & Steven Hendricks gave us a good platform to start the season. ------------------------- Transfers We sold off a number of players that wanted out for reasons of wallets bigger than their eyes. Winger Leo Huisting was sold to Real Madrid C.F for £10m + 50%. Other wingers on their way were Faruk Ünal (Sporting de Gijon, £2.5m) and Tom Vissers (Sporting Clube de Portugal, £7m). This left us seriously deficit in wide players, so I resigned winger Frans Konus from Sporting Clube de Portugal for £10m. But, it activated the sell on clause and I only paid £5m in the end . Also coming back was full back Steven Arts, who was released, but signed back on for a year, whilst his replacement in the reserves got a little experience on loan. Also leaving were young forward Mikkel Jansen to PEC Zwolle for £110k and midfielder Ronald Dekkers to Liverpool for £750k + sell on. We also got £5.7m from the Thor Lemaire sell on. - Transfers -
  11. This was his first game on loan at sc Heerenveen... Let's hope he kicks on, eh?
  12. Great work! Hope things are going well for you still?
  13. Thanks man. I'm not quite replacing them at the same speed as they're wanting to leave though...
