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? Say no more, phắm. 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.
Since my last save with LASK Linz crashed and burnt, here is my new save. I have always wanted to do this, so might as well try it! It's the standard club and country Liechtenstein challenge. For those who don't know, Liechtenstein is a tiny country sandwiched between Switzerland and Austria. Liechtenstein has a population of 37,340 and is one of the worlds smallest countries. I will be managing the mighty USV Eschen/Mauren who play in the 1. Liga which is the Swiss fourth tier as well as taking charge of the national team. First, onto the club team. USV Eschen/Mauren Eschen/Mauren represent the villages of Eschen and Mauren, who between them have a population of around 8500 and play in the 2000 capacity Sportpark Eschen/Mauren. My plan is to bring these guys to European glory. How am I going to do it? More on that later! Liechtenstein I will also be managing the national team, who play at the national stadium in Vaduz: My goal with them, will be of course glory on the European and World stage. It will be very hard of course, but who knows how it will turn out. I rarely manage national teams so unsure about how I will manage this to be honest. But how? And more importantly why? First onto the how. I will be playing this, as I do most of my saves, as a homegrown save. That means I will be pumping as much money as I can into the youth system in order to improve the quality of youth players available to me. All players must be from Liechtenstein other than the ones already there, who will be phased out over time. I have a large database, so will have as many players as possible to call upon. The better the youth academies across the whole of Liechtenstein are, the better the quality of the national team, so everyone wins. I will be keeping tabs on all other Liechtenstein teams, and will update you as and when. My first focus will be on improving facilities at Eschen-Mauren and hoping to be competitive with the national team. Current standings Here is where the Liechtenstein teams stand at the start of the game: Liechtenstein 149th Vaduz Swiss Super League + Europa League USV Eschen/Mauren Swiss 1. Liga group 3 FC Balzers Swiss 1. Liga group 3 FC Triesenberg Swiss 2. Liga interregio group 3 FC Triesen Swiss 2. Liga interregio group 3 FC Ruggell Swiss 2. Liga interregio group 6 FC Schaan Swiss 2. Liga interregio group 6 Any other business Firstly, the database. I have made a few amendments. I have added the Swiss 3rd/4th/5th tiers and added the 4 remaining Liechtensteiner clubs to the 5th tier (to allow them proper fixtures) as Balzers and Eschen/Mauren were already in the fourth tier. Allied to this, as with my previous save I have added a few little bits to test a few things. Tajikistan have a youth rating of 200 plus Prambachkirchen in the Austrian 7/8th tier have been given a sugar daddy as I've always wanted to know how that effects the game. Anything happens and I will let you know. In my previous save, I gave myself a second nationality to test this but haven't for this one as I want as many Liechtensteiners as possible to come through the youth ranks (my nationality is English on the game as in real life). I think that is all for now. Hopp Liachtaschta!!!
