  1. The Fourth Glass: I May Be Going Nowhere, But What A Ride Georgia, a beautiful country lying at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, with a rich history. An unlikely setting for a footballing revolution. Which is exactly what makes it so appealing. I'm also in need of a break from the Nearly Men (which will return in due course). Instead of jumping from one place to another, I want to stay in one place. Build something from nothing. And then stick around long enough to truly enjoy it. I considered a wide variety of clubs, countries and challenges. In the end, I kept coming back to one idea that has been tickling at the back of my mind. I'm a sucker for obscure clubs in scenic, far-distant locations -- places so far off the beaten path, that I can hear my grandfather proclaim, with a slow, rueful shake of his head, "you just can't get there from here." And this, my friends. This was it. Duruji Kvareli, a Georgian club whose home pitch lies inside the walls of an 18th century fortress, the Kvarlis Tsentraluri Stadioni. According to the Internet (which, if you haven't heard of it, is a series of tubes that is never wrong about anything), the two-tiered walls of Kvareli Fortress are more than 3 meters high, and were once surrounded by a water-filled moat. The fortress is said to have repelled the attacks of Nursal Bek of the Avar Khanate in 1755, although I may need to play several hundred hours of Europa Universalis IV to confirm. So, we have ourselves a literal fortress. My mission in this save? Nothing less than to turn this literal fortress into an metaphorical one. To conquer Georgia, Europe and the world with Duruji Kvareli. And, to conquer Europe and the world with the Georgian national team. Football is coming home, lads. It's coming home. A bit of background. Duruji Kvareli hail from Kvareli, a town of less than 8,000 residents nestled in the foothills of the Greater Caucasus Mountains of eastern Georgia. The town is at the heart of the Kakheti wine region, and is known for Kindzmarauli, a semisweet red variety. (Remind me of this in 6 months, when I'm looking for excuses to take the missus on a pilgrimage to see Duruji Kvareli play...) As far as I can tell, as recently as 2016 Duruji Kvareli was playing in the Georgian third tier. Not these days, though. I downloaded Weiry's 5-tier Georgian pyramid, but alas they still weren't in the active leagues. So I opened up the editor and swapped them out with another side in the 5th tier. Now we're ready to roll. Well, not quite. The color scheme in the database was making my eyes bleed. They were also off, according to the Internet, so I updated them to the "correct" claret and white, with a splash of blue. The lads, getting ready to get stuck in. Our manager, the man tasked with leading the charge? Giorgi Amirani, named for the mythical Georgian hero who defied the Gods. Yeah, I thought it was a fitting name, too. Amirani is a Kvareli native, a devotee of Telleusian (strikerless) tactical theory who burns with ambition. That ambition may be necessary. Amirani takes over his hometown club in January 2022, with 3 senior players (2 of whom are goalkeepers) on the roster and no first-team staff. As far as the Board goes...well, let's just say that they aren't the most ambitious lot. I'd like to think that we will finish higher than dead last, but...we can't even field a full XI right now. Let's not put the cart before the horse, yeah?! No matter how bleak things may look, there is no exit ramp for Amirani. You might even say that there's no easy way out. [Cue motivational Rocky IV-esque music montage, with Giorgi driving around Kvareli at night in his mom's 2002 Honda Civic, looking vaguely determined.] Again, like I said above, this is not a journeyman save. Rather, it's a club/country save where our goals are simple: take Dujuri Kvareli and (eventually) the Georgian national team to the pinnacle of world football. A Georgian monument to the mythical Amirani, putting Zlatan's statue in Malmo to shame. This save is titled "The Fourth Glass," a name which derives from Georgian legend surrounding the country's claim to be the birthplace of wine. Specifically, Georgian legend tells of how God created wine to remind the world of Heaven. After creating wine, God invited His angels and the Devil to taste it, with all agreeing that it transcended the divine, such that it returned anyone who drank it to Heaven, if only for a short period of time. This, the Devil could not tolerate. He created his own alcoholic beverage from the remains of crushed wine grapes -- chacha, a potent, fiery drink. Returning the courtesy, the Devil invited God to sample chacha. God drank one glass of chacha. Then a second. A third. A fourth. Finally, God leaned over to the Devil, drew him close and declared that "those who will drink three glasses of chacha may be on my side. After that, they are yours." While I'm not planning a narrative at this point, I did some digging into Georgian mythology and legend, to find inspiration for different aspects of the save. And I feel like this story speaks to how my saves tend to cross over into the...well, insane. So, if we aren't planning to dive into a narrative, what are the goals...? What else do we need to know? The first rule of the Fourth Glass is you don't mess with the Giorgi. The second rule? You don't mess with the Giorgi. As per usual, there are no hard-and-fast rules beyond the general concept of the save. I will not adhere to any particular transfer policy, beyond my standard preference for developing youth. I have also loaded a reduced injuries file to cut down on injuries across the board, without giving any advantage over the AI. I have also holidayed to January 2022, to allow for a unique playing environment. I have loaded the top leagues in England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain as active (with numerous view-only leagues), with a large database/pool of potential players, including all internationals worldwide and all players from clubs in European, African and South American continental competitions. As with the Nearly Men, I plan on including all substantive updates both here on the forum and at From the Cheap Seats. Taking the cue from the Lutterworth Fox and VivaLaVidaFM, I have also decided to add an Achievement Hunter element to the save, with both short and long-term targets: This list may be amended, so feel free to throw out any suggestions you might have. Up next: we take a quick look around the footballing world in January 2022, and the first ball is kicked in anger.
  2. The Frenchman Who Made Vietnam Cheer We've all heard of French Indochina, of the Sino-French and Independence wars, and of course of the Vietnam wars that started in the 50s, taking away the lives of millions and millions of innocent civilians. France has, admittedly, played an important part in every single intervention in Vietnam, and still has to this day a strong influence on the country's economy, political instability, and whatnot. What if its influence grew past the negativity it has always had a connotation to? What if France sent one of its brightest young minds to make Vietnam rejoice the socio-cultural infatuation it should have always had? The hero of our story, a young 22 year-old who was set to become France's greatest football star until he tore his ACL (you know how it goes), initially came to Vietnam as a tourist, but had some issues at the border that forced him to stay there indefinitely, don't ask any more questions, I didn't think that much about Alphonse's story. Oh, right, his name's Alphonse, as French as it gets, pretty cool, right? Alphonse had to find a job that would pay the bills in order to, well, survive, and turned to football, his only education. Few weeks later, he penned a manager contract with the legendary Phù Đổng FC, founded in 2015 with the slogan "Sports is life". One of his objectives as manager of this small Hanoi-based club; to make it the Asian powerhouse it should have always been. In fact, his list of objectives goes a bit deeper than that. I present to you, the 16 Commandments of Alphonse Levallois. Now, more information on this youth-only career update and our chosen team, the great Phù Đổng FC, will follow in the next post.
