  1. Still frustrated about having been sacked by Nacional Potosí in my previous save although we managed a 4th spot and the AI in your save hopelessly got relegated...
  2. Oh sweet Jesus, not RKC again... Before we know the club board will only allow the draught of foamless beers at the Mandemakers...

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    The plus side to the static qualification spots is that they're not divided by a spread of Kosovar teams who aren't near performing as well in Europe as you are. Progress up the UEFA ranks should come way quicker than normal.
  4. Yessss, so glad you're back. I loved your Buducnost save!
  5. From Superliga champions to the Armenian 3rd Tier. It... it doesn't add up I tell ya!
  6. That Superleague Cup is another hurry-up-we-need-to-invent-something-quick Argentine scheduling sh*itshow kinda tournament the AFA invented because the Argentine league is in transition form that horrendous 30 teams league a couple of years back to a 22 team league. This means every year, 4 teams get relegated and 2 are promoted. Because of this, they're faced with a 26 team league this year, which was too much for a 50 game schedule, but too little for a 25 game schedule, so they invented an extra little tournament to go along with it. I see SI haven't continued that relegation/promotion thing as you're still stuck with 26 teams in 2049, but irl there will be 24 teams in the league in 19/20 and 22 teams in 20/21.
  7. So you're telling me you've plugged your way through two nightmares of leagues just to jump the ship to another team? I can't believe this! However, Argentinos Jrs. is pretty cool. I had to drive past their ground every day when I lived in Buenos Aires a couple of years ago. It's a really small club surrounded by some huge neighbourhoods, but they always sold out.
  8. Please don't tell me you intend to stay managing in this league. Is there really no team in the Primera División who wants you after all those championships?
  9. Oh Argentina and your ridiculous league structures.

    [FM19] Kosovo's Rise

    It's actually not an FM bug or something like that. I believe UEFA have an official policy that new members have to go through a provisional phase in which they only have 2 spots. After a couple of years, they can get more. I reckon that in one or two years, UEFA will increase the amount of spots for Kosovo. But as they haven't in real life, FM hasn't increased the spots either.
  11. Yassss, Argentina is crawling closer! So curious how that adventure will play out Btw, I'm still amazed by the amount of rubbish teams you have to take over, given that you've already won 7 leagues. I mean, a second tier Antiguan team? That's harsh.
  12. 16. SEPTEMBER 2018 "He just told us he had faith in us. I think he saw we played pretty well up until half time and he managed to make us believe we were dominating the game until then. You saw that in the second half." The kid, tall and slim and with a pronounced hispanic accent answered to the cameras following UTEP's win over Colorado. Josue Molano, UTEP's central defender came off another decent game. Nothing flashy, but the job got well done. Especially after the dramatic result up in Ohio. Where UTEP had completely outdone themselves from UCLA a week prior, the team seemed toothless in front of goal. Even though they managed to show an equal amount of danger from their possession as their hosts Toledo, the game ended in a hard loss. The heavy loss had stripped the Miners from their ranked position. It didn't happen often that a team would drop from #3 all the way out of the top 25, but the season was still young and so the rankings at times erratic. Returning in El Paso, the shift moved to the next home game, against the University of Colorado. Another ranked team from the Pac-12. However, just like the UCLA game, El Paso seemed an impossible fortress for the visitors from the Far West. Even though UTEP was trailing before half time, they had been the better team up until then. Ferguson's half time speech tried to stress that results against them had been pure bad luck and his players' class still showed. The result spoke for itself. And so, midway through September, the Miners were 3-1 for the season and back into the #12 seed. Three more non-conference games to impress the polls and to pick up some momentum until the shift moved to the conference itself.
  13. 15. SEPTEMBER 2018 "Coach, I think it's time to call your mom." "Why's that?" Tim responded to Joe. "Well, I just found out you guys are the number 3 seed this week. And you're facing Toledo, who are number 19, so that one's definitely going to be on the TV." "Geez, guess we got the writers on our side pretty easily huh?" "That's what you get for beating the #12. I'll see if I can drop by when you guys come back home. Talk to you later." Tim put his phone down. His office had become nicely furbished by now. He had been here for a month and half but already it seemed as though he'd never leave. Just a couple of days ago, UTEP faced big shot UCLA in their second non-conference game. Don't ask Tim what happened, but it was a gallery perfomance from start to end by the Miners. A 5-1 final score wasn't even undeserved. Everything clicked. The team was having a huge amount of fun. And so, UTEP had stormed the polls. The polls, a true American invention used to subjectively rank college teams because the myriad of different conferences prevents the human brain of comprehending true strength among the teams. Tim didn't really take the polls too much into account. The only thing they're good for is to decide for which bowl game the Miners could possibly get invited at the end of the tournament. As long as they were a DII team, being ranked didn't mean a lot of fame or cash yet. Nevertheless, a #19 Toledo vs #3 UTEP matchup next week. Season had just begun, but the Miners managed to make a good showing.
