  1. That's Disappointing. Too bad they can't make anyone coming through FFA COE declared for nation. I thought that was the case for anyone coming through there after to us losing quite a few players like Josip Simunic.
  2. Curious, how does the Club World Championship winners look? Have your champions League winning teams gone on to win it without you at the helm?
  3. So at the start of the season I had these three players come in. Total cost £3,975,000 7 months later same three players leave. Total sale value £8,200,000 Minimum release clauses… I’d tried to negotiate leaving at the end of the season, only for other clubs to come in and just hit the release clause and no negotiation possible. I’m no longer as optimistic as I once was for our match up against the old lady.

I honestly didn’t expect Plzen to drop the ball that badly. We need to make the most of this gap, I don’t want to be fighting at the end of the season with tired players. Looks like we got Juventus, I’m not too disappointed, we could have gotten Bayern, Real Madrid, or PSG, I really wanted Benfica or Napoli though. Hopefully we aren’t pillaged too badly when the transfer window opens. The big fish took notice of our performances and have come circling.
  5. Thanks @deltablue It was good football that won the game not just sit back and counter attack, though I did pull back a bit after our second. I also won that game while playing on the train so I got a few stares when I celebrated that victory.
  6. Season 2018/19 Starting the new season with some rankings increases in both the Czech Republic and Europe. Transfers A lot of youth that will either stay and help us build and either be sold on for a lot of money. Czech First Division Bohemians 1905 2-2 Sparta Prague Scapuzzi Saves Bohemians Blushes.

Disappointed in those early season draws but at least we got points from them. Champions League Group D Bohemians 1905 2-0 Man City Eden no paradise for City Well, this is a much better second placing. If we’d held on to the draw against Dortmund we’d be 3 points clear at the top. Now I need to make sure we're competitive away from home against Dortmund and Citeh and beat Shakhtar at Eden.
  7. Holy cow, that's a mo I'd have kill for to grow as a 16 year old.
  8. Czech First Division While last season we were pushed all the way by Sparta Prague, it was Slavia Prague that pushed us this season. While the table will show us as clear 8 point leaders we’d slipped to second on goal difference with three games to go after a mini slump that saw us pick up 1 point from 9. Let’s just say it was brown trousers time. Fortunately for us Slavia played Viktoria Plzen and Sparta Prague who couldn’t knock them out of second but were looking to cement their places in Europe. Even though we lost 2 more games than we did last season and conceded 3 more goals, we won 4 more games and scored 9 more goals. We had the second leading goal scorer in the competition and I thought he was rather inconsistent with his form. We scored 62 goals in the league, Zdenek Linhart scored 14 of them no one else scored more than 5 league goals. It is possibly the lone striker formation but Linhart didn’t play all games either. I do need to look for a second goal scorer. Champions League After scraping through the group stage in to the first knockout round. Bayern looked us up and down and we found ourselves out of our depth. 2 late firls half goals put Bayern up 3-0 going into the break and it was just a mountain too far. We pulled one back but were well and truly outclassed and put out of our misery with a 2-0 loss in Munich and 5-1 over all on aggregate. Czech FA Cup. We lost to Dukla Prague in the 4th round when we were expected to make the Quarter Final. Our only consolation is that Dukla went on to win the competition, so at least we were knocked out by the champions. Facilities After 1447 seats were added at the start of this season, another 1742 seats are being added this season bringing us up to 8189 capacity. Training and Youth Facilities are also being upgraded. Youth Intake Milan Marek, A defensive midfielder who has been labelled a once in a general product only problem is I don’t use defensive midfielders. He is competent in both central defence and central midfield so I may train him to one of those positions. Milan Prochazka, an attacking midfielder with plenty of flair who is also competent at striker, though with his finishing I hope I won’t be relying on his shooting. AMC is probably one of our stronger positions so maybe some intensive Striker training might be handy. Ondrej Jakubov, a central defender and the third of my high potential youth products. Probably a fair way from first team football just yet, but we’ll see.
  9. Question. If I chose Sydney, who have the sister city of Wellington, do I need to win the A-League with Both Sydney FC and Wellington Phoenix? (since there isn't a NZ league active in game.)
  10. Thanks, the pun subheadings are my favourite part of writing these. In fact the main reason for signing Francesco Deli was for the deli related puns I hope to use. (though he is a decent player for us also which helps.)
  11. I have a Karel Hrubes in goal for me at the moment, I might have to sack him on principle. I can’t take a chance they’re related.

  13. Gah! So many of the signings I've tried to make don't want to come because of facilities (understandable, so they are being upgraded) and because of the standard of living. Surely Prague isn't that bad a city to live in?
  14. Thanks, It actually gave me hope that we could be competitive in the Group stage as long as we didn't draw a couple heavy weights. Yes, So much money. Hopefully I can afford to buy players instead of free transfers now.
  15. Transfers in: Signed on a Bosman for £53K compensation, Karel Hrubes has been used in rotation with last season’s free transfer Julio Iricibar. Solid if not spectacular, will likely be only a short-term solution if we’re to make regular progression in Europe. Last season’s on loan striker picked up on a free after his contract wasn’t renewed. Currently equal leading goal scorer in the Czech first division and two goals away from breaking the club’s record for most league goals in a season. Again, not a long-term solution and will probably find his way down the pecking order as soon as I can find a better striker that wants to play for us. Formerly on the books at Man City and Stoke and signed on a free, The Slovakian\Brazilian defender has formed a tight partnership with Serbian Zoran Gajic. Will be serviceable for a couple of seasons. Released by Melbourne Victory, This Australian Midfielder is probably more pet project though he does have potential. I need to give him more game time or maybe a loan spell to get him that game time to see him reach his potential. Also released by Melbourne Victory, was signed to be a backup to Linhart. Doesn’t look to have much of a future here though as we try to progress. Once on the books at Espanyol and Bilbao this free transfer was signed on deadline day. Unfortunately that meant he was not able to play Group Stage Champions League for us. Definitely one of the better players in the squad and should be around for a few seasons to come. Another free deadline day signing forcing Feiz Shamsin out of the right-wing spot. Played a handful of games so far and looks to be settling in well. Final deadline day signing and a ‘big money’ signing for us. Signed for £180K from Serie C he has enough about him to stay with the squad until the days we start to sign absolute superstars. Has settled into central midfield and will look to make it his own in the second half of the season. Czech First Division This is an impressive start to the season. Handling Champions League and regular league hasn’t seen a form drop off as we’ve only dropped seven points before the break. I am a bit worried about the depth of some positions meaning tired legs at the back of the season but with the winter transfer window coming up I’ll hopefully be able to convince the board to part with some of the Champions League money to strengthen the squad. Champions League After a squeaky bum time against Celtic that saw us through to the group stage I must say we gave a very good account of ourselves winning two of our home games and drawing one away. A 5-0 loss against Barcelona or more accurately a 5-0 loss against Luis Suarez was probably the only disappointment as far as the group stage went. I was fully resigned when I saw Galatasaray went 1-0 up against Sporting and we’d gone 2-1 down to Suarez to a Europa cup spot but I didn’t notice Sporting play spoil sport and register their only win finishing 3-1 meaning we held onto second thanks to our away goal in Istanbul. We scrapped through to the first-round knockout stage. Let’s face it, looking at the teams available, we were eyed up like a small fish in a big pond. We got Bayern, at least we won’t have to go far to be brutalised. Czech FA Cup The less said about this the better, after casually brushing aside lower league side, Admira Prague, we tripped over our own feet against Dukla Prague and our cup defence was over before Christmas. We were expected to reach the Quarter Finals, hopefully over achieving in the Champions League can placate that anger some.
