    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    September 2032 Starting the month with my first games in charge of the Kosovar national team. Could've gone better, but not extremely displeased. Great start to the CL group.

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    Quite right, it's understandable and mostly realistic to say that the Eredivisie no longer is a top 10 league with the Russian league most clearly better and others like Ukraine, Turkey and even Belgium and Switzerland having sides that have performed better in Europe. Ajax has done very well in Europe this year but when you look at the current Eredivisie table there's still a clear flaw - the huge gap between the top 2 (maybe 3) sides and the rest of the league. Thanks man! I go so quickly because I have auto-continue on and I use an instant-result skin which speeds up things dramatically. It's called "wannachup" if you want to find it.

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    Pre-Season + August 2032 + A New Job... Now the league is rated on a level of Sweden, Romania, Denmark and even close to the Eredivisie ( ). Also note the Croatian and Serbian leagues in the top 10. With the huge reputation increase the tv money has gone slightly crazy, and my players values have gone up a lot as well (instead of 900k the best players are now rated 4M+) It was an intense transfer summer, and even though we didn't need any more money with a huge balance and budgets, we did get more... Three big sales and a sell-on fee made us more than 100M. Henry Perez was a mainstay in the midfield but the money offered was just too good to reject, the same applies to Bouhadda and Rahmati. I signed Perez a few years for 800K from Medellin, and from that same club I now signed Barato, another very good central midfielder. Christopoulous has been on my radar for a while as he is probably the most talented player with either Kosovar or Albanian nationality - he is Albanian and therefore doesn't count as foreign. I signed Alvez since I really needed another left back. A lovely pre-season and august, and we played a testimonial for the legend Hoxha himself. The CL draw is very tough, but at the point we're at now we should qualify out of any group. A New Job... Finally! My first squad!

    Thank you. I do have to take in mind that the ratings for the intakes are based on my first team, who are of course much better than the rest of the league and what was the standard of Kosovar football previously, so some perhaps might be of use later on. I know right! Imagine how people would react if this happened in real life...

    Season Review 2031-2032 I will probably try one more year at Ballkani. That will be the fifteenth season at the club. I really want to leave here with a European trophy, but if it won't happen next year I don't think I will try again after that. I was already thinking about leaving after this season, but I really feel like there's unfinished business.

    May 2032 We did manage to get to a third straight CL final, but for the second straight year we lost on penalties! It was astonishing that PSG made the final in the first place...

    April 2032 Pretty safely dealt with Red Star, and another close-by club in the semi-finals! Hajduk beat Barcelona! We're looking good for a third straight final....

    It's been crazy so far! Thanks!

    January - March 2032 + Youth Intake Nothing much of note with regards to transfers... But some nice unexpected money from a sell-on fee. Arranged some friendlies to get the players fit for the Napoli game, which seems to have worked! Remarkably we have drawn both away games to Feronikeli this season. Red Star, quite the QF! A poor intake, really.

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    September - December 2031 Not bad! Certainly did not expect a 100% score in these months in both league and CL, including a 5-1 home win against Atlético...

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    Pre-Season + August 2031 This might be my last season at Ballkani, depending on how we do, etc. I have done by far the most expensive transfer yet, as I decided to buy a player that was rated the highest by my scouts. Outgoing most noteworthy is probably Kovacevic who was requesting to be put on the transferlist many times and if I'm getting annoyed I'd rather just sell them and move on. There have been more offers from other Kosovar teams to buy my players than before, and some transfers went through. There could have been more, but several players rejected contracts elsewhere. A great win over Chelsea in pre-season, but we actually started the league with a draw! Shocking. Atlético will be tough to deal with, should be able to handle the other two teams though.

    April 2031 Unexpected, but we just managed to scrape past Bayern (thanks to three own goals in the two matches!!). A good home performance against PSG as well, just too bad about the away goal. It is possible, but it will be tough.
