    Pre-season - Season 4 - 2023/2024

    We started with beating Tirana from Albania in our Champions league qualifications. Now we need to beat Olimpija from Slovenia and they have some good players.

    First Eleven

    This is our first eleven for important games . Olivero replaces retired Nano. 

    This is our first eleven for other games in Gibraltar. 



    Transfers in


    Signed five regens from other clubs. I'm very excited about two.

    McMahonVery good prospect, i'll loan him out to gain experience.

    Lloyd: a good AMC prospect.

    Buckley: Good Determination and some good attributes for the DMC position.

    Avellano: A 'real' player, signed him as third goalkeeper.
    Transfers out

    I get a lot of loan offer this pre-season .. that is a good thing ! I'm loaning some good prospects out.

    Staff changes


    I was able to sign some very good coaches for senior and youth team with good personalities.

    Senior training

    U23 training:


    U19 training:
    Our training ratings improved a lot this season. 

    Manager thoughts

    I decided to loan the four / five youngsters who are very close to the senior team and let them make minutes at other teams at the highest level. In the coming years I will have to continue to filter through, for now I am still counting on the older (mainly Spanish) players. I am counting on Europa League groupstage again and want to get the treble in Gibraltar again. I hope that the youth intake will slightly improve this season.

    Gibraltar National League

    This year we did it ! The Gibraltarian invincibles ! 60/60 points.


    Gibraltar Rock Cup

    We needed extra time in the final but we won our first ! :) 

    Pepe Reyes Cup





    Happy with our performance, managed to get a draw against every opponent from our EL group.

    Intermediate League (U23)



    Key players

    AnnesleyOur best defender. only 23 and a great bargain.

    Nano: Only 38 years old , assisted 20 !

    Britto: Our other great central defender, only 22 .

    Juanfri: who else? scored 29 this season and will rotate with Dylan Borge next season .

    Academy Accolades


    Facilities (changes)


    Manager's thoughts

    Very happy with the treble, finally won the cup. we have a long way to go to win the league more than Lincoln but we are on track. Twice in three seasons very strong in the Europa league, I hope we can repeat this a few more times.  The big test comes from once several 'real' players quit and we have to repeat this with regens. All players signed or still have a contract. I hope to steal a few more good regens at other clubs.

    That's interesting. I might look at Gibraltar if I ever complete in Iceland.

    Pro = u can arrange friendlies against teams from Spain or Africa and u need to do this because some months you only get one fixture.

    Contra= This is the smallest European country and u can't use them in the youth only challenge because the second tier has no promotion (only youth teams + Hound dogs).

    Damnit, thanks to @Shankly84 I now have an unstoppable urge to play in Iceland again. So I will, with Njarðvík.


    They actually have a pretty great youth setup (but a horribly small stadium!), so I hope I can traverse the Icelandic leagues rather quickly and have focus on Europe now.


    Had two great seasons with them (posted here about them). The only thing i don't like in Iceland are the long winterbreaks  . In Gibraltar i have a shorter season but the winter and off season breaks are not that long.

    One day i'll return to Iceland, good luck !

  5. Development update - Class of 2022

    March 2022:


    March 2023 (one year development):


    DNA average: increased 1.8

    Technical average: increased 1.2

    Mental average: increased 1.4

    Physical average: increased 3.5

    Total average: increased 2.1

    This class improved in comparison with the class of 21 a lot. 



    No determination changes yet. Everybody inproved overall with 'Professional' Lake and 'Fickle' Salah as best students of this class at the moment.



    Conclusion : If i compare this with my first development update from Class 21, this is a big step to the right direction. I have to take a look why the determination attribute didn't change .

    Youth Intake - Season 3 - Class of 2023


    Two players above 40% , overall a weak intake.

    Average determination = 9.3 . Class of 22 was 9.06 . Class of 21 was 10.1 . 

    Average total attributes = 35,76 . Class of 22 was 34,7 and class of 21 was 33,5 . So this is the best class .



    Best of class 2023

    Barber seems ok but he is not very tall and low self belief could become a problem.  He scores 45,41 and is our best youth intake player since starting this save. I believe in Davison , he could become our best winger with his pace and dribbling and good personality. 

    Only Gib players this time.


  7. Facilities update  - Season 3

    I requested to update this and after three attemps they accepted but for a lot of money. it was Adequate .



    Youth Recruitment and Academy coaching was easy to update till now. I'm very happy with how fast we are improving but i don't expect any miracles.. if we get one good youngster every year it would be really good for a Gib team.

    Gibraltar that scores is special.. if your hotest prospect scores it is very special :)

    Player Development - Dylan Borge YT

    Dylan Borge YT is one of the biggest talents in Gibraltar. Already a regular player at GIB for two years and at St Joseph's since January 2021 . 
    In the past he played at Europa FC and Lincoln.

    He played 44 senior games, scored 17 goals. 


    His attributes in January 2021 and in October 2022. 

    So after almost 1.5 year at our development centre he improved most at technical and mental part.  No change in Personality or Determination.

    Now he is on individual training ' Ball control' so he should or could develop more at 'First Touch ' ' Dribbling ' and 'Technique' .

    At the moment he isn't playing everything , Juanfri plays the most important games but this could change in the very near future.

    He improved 3.5 / 100 on the 'Technical - 4.29 / 100 on 'Mental' and 3.75 on the 'Physical' part. He improved his best role 'Advanced forward' from 51.25 to 56.88 .

    I'm happy with his development and i hope that i can improve attributes like Dribbling ,passing and Decisions. His pace should improve also.


  9. Gibraltar only situation

    The pool with GIB players is very short . Sometimes a good Spanish or English player that plays 730 days in Gibraltar can get GIB as second nationality. Most of the Spanish lads aren't doing that , realistic. But two Foreign players did :

    Lee is a Sheff Wed youth product, starting his third season and has GIB as second nationality.. i'm following him.

    Rosa is playing for Europa FC , his fourth season and he is eligible for Gibraltar
