Well Bazan & Roman have agreed to join Evora in July, and Bazan will now be a replacement for Cabezas not in the line with him as Cabezas would not sign with us, but has gone to Aston Villa on a free...I had been trying for 12 months to offer him a new contract...

Delighted to have made the League Cup Semi Finals, and even more so to actually have a shot at winning it, in Group A we had Varzim knock out Sporting, in Group B I went unbeaten knocking out Maritimo & Porto, while Group C saw Benfica & Belenenses (Runner-up) come through.

I will face Belenenses at home, while Benfica travel to Varzim. A great draw for my chances of winning this Cup.

Albion Rovers 2015/2016

3rd in Clydesdale Bank Premier League (pred: 7th) | Transfers | Finances | Graph

The League

Another 3rd place although we got 6 more points this season. With the same points total as last year we'd be 6th. We never had a bad slump or a huge run of wins. Mostly a couple of wins, a draw, a couple of wins, a loss, etc. Very boring season really, although we had a small run at the top of the table in the middle. But that was only because Rangers had a few games in hand on us. Goal was top 6 so this is great.

The Cups

We won one. The League Cup. Really pleased to beat Celtic in the final, although they had a bad season for them. In fact we beat Celtic 4 of 6 games this season. They won the last two. We also go to the final of the Scottish Cup, but Rangers is simply to strong for us at the moment. I'm not to worried though, they have much better players. We lost 4 of 5 games against them this season, the last one being a draw.

The EURO Cup (Fixtures | Group Table)

I already posted the results of the group stages earlier, but to make a short recap. We where unlucky not to beat Olympiakos away and then lucky to get a draw against Man City at home. We beat the crap out of CFR Cluj which I was really pleased with. Then we got our win against Olympiakos as they came to our ground, before getting hammered by Man City away.

This put us 2nd in our group behind Man City and we drew AS Monaco FC in the 1st KO round. I thought we might have a slight chance against them, thinking they might be on par with Olympiakos. But I was very wrong. They hammered us 5-2 at our ground and 2-1 at their ground. Looking at their players after the game I can see why we didn't stand a chance. They almost knocked out Chelsea in the next round to, but just almost. I can only imagine what Chelsea would have done to us.

The Players (Team Stats | Sorted by Av Rat)

We had a big clear out of fringe players in the pre-season and not to many new players in. You can see them in the pre-season report further up this page. As you can see our 1st team squad was a lot smaller this season so everyone got a few games. Except Brennan who was the 3rd GK, but he was available for reserves the whole season and is just a hot prospect.

I'm not incredibly impressed by to many players this year, but Maikel de Jong had another great season with Damien Plessis a good number two. Martin Necas did score the most goals (of those left), but he also played more games than any other attacker. I was expecting more of him to be honest. Jay Spearing is now our captain and he had another good season setting up more goals than anyone. Will Reid was maybe our most effective attacker, he might have a good season a head of him.

Sadly there is one player missing from those squad pictures. Mario Villa would have been the real star, but was sold by my chairman when Atletico Mineiro decided to come in with this offer. I have to say I would not have accepted this offer myself. He was on a 5 year deal and he was our best attacker by far. He managed 19 goals and 20 assists in the 34 matches he got to start. Already missing him. :(

The Finances

Amazing profit this season and there's several sources for that. Players being sold for £5.6M for one, and we still have £160k a month for 22 months to come from Atletico Mineiro for the Villa deal. Our second highest income was Gate Receipts, giving us £5.5M this season. I'm guessing mostly due to playing in Europe and getting so far in Cups. The average attendance was 6363, so I'm considering asking for another stadium expansion. We also made £3.8M in price money this season. Our biggest expense was in fact Tax at £1.6M with player wages a good number two at £1.4M. We have a good margin between wages and gate receipts still. A huge margin in fact.

The Scottish Teams in Europe

Well you know how we did, but this was actually a good year for Scotland as both Celtic, Rangers and Dundee Utd also got through the EURO Cup group stages. Celtic got there by being 3rd in the Champions Cup group though. Dundee Utd even did us all one better and got to the 2nd KO round where Fenerbache was to strong. Celtic lost to Sporting and Rangers to Palermo in the 1st KO round. Also, Rangers lost to At. Madrid in the Champions Cup qualifiers so they where a bit unlucky with the draw there.

The Future

Well we have lots of money, I hope the board will invest so we can improve all sides of the club. They already said they'd improve training and youth facilities. There's 5 players contracts running out after next season, but only Maikel de Jong is very important of those. I'm gonna try giving him a new one, but he's one of few that do wanna leave. I'm gonna try to pick up more hot prospects for our reserve team, and hopefully we can find some real quality for the first team to. I might start looking for a completely new back 4 to be honest. I'm not pleased with the amount of goals we're letting past us.

Ohanzee - another good season there - looks like it was quite competitive this season. unlucky vs Monaco too but congrats on getting out of the group.

Des - sounds like you've a solid season going there. great result v Porto and i like the look of Roman and Bazan. good luck for the rest of the season and in the cup.

As for my Venezia game, i'm ploughing my way through pre-season. I've sold a number of players and am currently working on finding the replacements. A couple of surprise departures also which i'll highlight in my pre-season review but i am confident they were the right moves for the club. If i can strengthen my defence i think we'll do alright this season

Our board expanded our stadium. That's what they call putting in another 158 seats at least. :rolleyes: I already bothered them with a request to expand again and they said there are plans. So I guess we'll get another 200 seats next summer. :p

I don't wanna say this, but we're the 110th club in Europe. That's behind LLR, argh!!! :D

We tied up de Jong's contract, so he's here for 3 more years. Trying to find him a better partner and some fullbacks to.

We have 12 scouts now. There's reports from all over the world. I love it. There's even some decent ones from Iran and Saudi Arabia, from covering the Asian Nations Cup last year.

WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!! What a time to get our first ever victory over Benfica. We have defeated them 2:1 in the League Cup Final. We have won our first top level trophy in a spectacular game. Cabezas opened the scoring in the 8th minute, and Hector Cruz doubled that lead after 23mins, and it looked solid even when Elias scored for them in the 31st minute. We managed to hold on including a 88th minute goal for Benfica being turned away for offside and my side getting up and rowdy infront of 51,000 fans. A huge game and a great start to my day...off to work now.

Albion Rovers pre-season 2016/2017

Busy transfer window again, even though we didn't really lose anyone big until very late in the window. Chris Craig went to our rival Rangers when they offered £1.2M. I had already gotten a good replacement by then so I decided to accept as the offer was cash up-front and Craig haven't improved at all the last seasons.

Here's all the transfers

Steve Sidwell - Well known experienced midfielder.

Alan Hutton - Well known experienced right back

Joleon Lescott - Well known experienced defender.

Elliot Draper - Young talented left sided defender. Already being tutored by Lescott.

Emmanuel Frimpong - Good midfielder, probably at the peak of his talent.

Paul Spiridon - Very promising attacker who can play several positions. High hopes for him. Only player we payed money for.

Yuri Grimaldi - Defender who can play both fullbacks. Could become a leading star for the division some day.

The rest are again hot prospects for the reserve team. Jack Gaughan (DL), Emanuele Tufano (GK), Andy Wilson (DRC), Henk Piron (SC), and Bruno Bartoli (DC).

If you checked the screens you'll see that Bartoli already played a first team match. That's cause we had 5 defenders out injured in our second leg of the EURO Cup qualification 4th round. Our entire back 4 was out. Tufano will also be kept in the first team as a 3rd choice. He's also one that could become a leading star.

Very happy with getting some experience in, and Lescott and Hutton in particular are much better than our other fullbacks. But I'll probably use Lescott in the center and the kid Draper on the left back instead.

One more player deserves mentioned, Lee Fraser. He joined in after I wrote my season update, but early enough to be on last years transfer history. He was one of those you see in the "Scottish clubs release youth players" news story at the end of each season, and he's had to step up already cause Nagy got a 5 week injury in pre-season. And he's been scary good so far. In fact we would be out of the EURO Cup already if it wasn't for his MoM performance.

We where seeded for the EURO Cup qualification this season, so I was hoping for a easier ride than last year, and I thought FC Zurich would be. But our attackers where hopeless at home and we only managed 1-1 after missing several big chances and a penalty. I wasn't really worried since we had outplayed them, but still very annoyed. In the away match they where all of a sudden a lot better and this is where Lee Fraser got his MoM award. We won 3-1, but really should have lost. It has to be said though that this was also the game we had 5 defenders out injured.

We're gonna be playing Roma of Italy, Chernomorets (Burgas) of Bulgaria and Maccabi Haifa of Israel in the group stages. After the Zurich games I take nothing for granted, but we should be able to fight for 2nd spot again.

We also had a take-over, the most boring one ever. It's been talked about for over a year now and one day I just got this news headline. No transfer embargo, no cash injection, nothing. Just a new boring owner. He said there's no plan of injecting any cash.

Carlsberg (Portuguese League) Cup Goal of the Year: Cabezas

Just a short post for now, I will give a proper update once I finish the league...

And on a side note only the top 5 in the league are going to make it to Europe as the Portuguese Cup Final is Leiria vs Leixoes - Leiria are in Liga Vitalis and coming 14th (2pts above relegation) & Leixoes are 14th in the Liga Sagres (Also 2pts above relegation).

Congrats to LLR for winning the Cup, looking forward to reading the final season report. I hope you'll qualify for Europe ;)

Razer82, nice one retaining the title. Hope you'll post a finances screen soon as I see you spent £7.5M but didn't sell anyone to match your transfer expenditure.

ghostwriter, here's hoping you'll catch that promotion ;) Too bad for that wage budget and goals conceded in 80+ mins problem, probably you tried setting your mentality to 'defensive' or 'counter' and ticking 'retain possesion' and 'pass to feet' near the end of a match. Good luck ;)

Ohanzee, I especially loved your reports (no offence to others) 'cause I love Scottish leagues' format and tend to play a LLM at least once per year (FM year). Congratz for being promoted to SPL and (almost) winning both Cups you took spot in. Good luck in Europe this season also, you have a good chance with Chernomorets and M. Haifa. Too bad for chairman interference with Villa's transfer, but Hawkins and Reid are great back-ups and I hope they'll won't dissapoint you goalwise.

Looking forward to your reports. :)

Well the League Cup win itself Qualified me for Europe, but as a Teaser I also finished in the European spots though its a strange end to the season. And also 2 of my squad made it to the World Cup, and one of them made it out of the "Group of Death" and into the second round. Full report is about 24 hours away as it is truly time for bed given I have work in 8 hours :p

croman.TIR669, thanks. To be honest I didn't think I would enjoy the Scottish league format with the split of top and bottom after 33 games, but now that I've played 3 seasons in the Premier League I am. Even the rule that you need to have 3 under 21 outfield players in the starting eleven haven't bothered me at all. And the fact that you get from £800k to £3M in price money for your position in the PL is sweet as well.

I'm done with my season, it was a good one. Will post update soon.

Albion Rovers 2016/2017

1st in Clydesdale Bank Premier League (pred: 5th) | Transfers | Finances | Graph

The League

It was a brilliant run in the Premier League this season. We lost 2 of the first 9 games, but then we went on a 22 game unbeaten run. In the end we had only lost 3 matches all season and the title was already ours with 4 games left to play. CHAMPIONS!!

Looking at the table it's easy to see where the difference is compared to the last two years. We conceded just 26 goals compared to 49 and 51 before. So the experience and quality of the back four was really vital. That said, you can also see that the other teams had really bad seasons. Last year we finished 3rd with 70 points. This year 70 points would have been enough to win the league. Rangers had a horrible season for someone of their quality, it seems who ever wins the league is always doing bad the next year lately. I hope we can prove that theory wrong.

The Cups

Not good. We lost a penalty shoot out against Hearts in the League Cup quarter final. And, even worse, we managed to lose 1-0 at home to Motherwell in the 5th round of the Scottish Cup. I dunno how we managed to lose that game cause we did play a strong side, we just couldn't score. Both Reid and Necas played below 6.0 in the match.

The EURO Cup

As mentioned we barely got through to the group stages beating Zürich 4-2 on agg. with our entire back 4 out injured. We where then entered into a group with Roma (ITA), Chernomorets (Burgas) (BUL), and M. Haifa (ISR).

[b][color="Blue"]EURO Cup Grp H[/color] ([url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecgrp.jpg"]Table[/url])[/b]

M. Haifa	A	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg1.jpg"]2-1[/url]	Necas x2
Roma		H	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg2.jpg"]2-1[/url]	Miquel, Frimpong (pen)
Chernomorets	A	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg3.jpg"]4-2[/url]	Miquel, Spiridon, Necas (pen), Pavlov
Chernomorets	H	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg4.jpg"]4-1[/url]	Miquel, Necas, Reid, Spiridon
M. Haifa	H	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg5.jpg"]3-0[/url]	Lescott x2, Pavlov
Roma		A	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecg6.jpg"]2-3[/url]	Reid, Necas

I was really a bit surprised at how well we managed against Roma. Their best players are getting old, but they are still quality. Vucinic was injured when we beat them, he scored two times in Rome. So I guess he may have been the difference. I'm very pleased with how we got through the group, and as winners we drew Zenit of Russia in the 1st KO round.

[b][color="Blue"]EURO Cup 1st Knockout Round[/color][/b]

Zenit		A	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecko11.jpg"]4-3[/url]	Lescott, Hutton, Reid, Miquel
Zenit		H	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecko12.jpg"]3-1[/url]	Sidwell, Necas, Frimpong

We where really the better team in both games against the Russians. Their big star, 33 year old Alessandro Rosina, did his best scoring 3 goals in the two legs, but it wasn't enough to beat us. 7 different goal scorers for us in the two legs. Very pleasing. I was expecting to play Roma again in the next leg as it was them or Club Brugge. But the Belgian team proved to be really strong.

[b][color="Blue"]EURO Cup 2nd Knockout Round[/color][/b]

Club Brugge	H	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecko21.jpg"]0-2[/url]	
Club Brugge	A	[url="http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv330/TommiHelm/Albion/s7ecko22.jpg"]1-1[/url]	Borrelli

We had real trouble in these games as both our best strikers (Reid and Necas) where out injured. Sadly this showed in the results. The home game was very tight and they took their chances, we didn't. After the away game I felt like we deserved more, but again we didn't take our chances and even missed a penalty. I guess we lack quality backup up front. That said, Club Brugge are without a doubt a better team than us, I'm really amazed at some of the players they have. They must have some crazy good scouts.

The Players (team stats | sorted by av rat.)

It's hard to pick any real stars after such a good season, but there's no doubt our defense played a big part. Maikel de Jong had another fantastic season and I'm having a hard time understanding why he's playing so well. His technical stats are really quite bad. The new guys Joleon Lescott, Alan Hutton and Elliot Draper all did great, especially Lescott. Tom Thorpe also had another good season, so we had 5 defenders playing really well this season. We also signed one more defender in December as our Central European scout found Iker Garcia. He looks promising.

Emmanuel Frimpong also had a great first season. He was very consistent and never injured, playing both as a defensive and central midfielder. And up front Will Reid and Martin Necas both had great seasons. To bad they where injured in the EURO Cup 2nd KO round.

But, the real star of the season was in my eyes Miquel. In his 4th season at the club the Spaniard finally is starting to show his real potential. Of course that also means that he now wants to leave. He thinks he's to good for us now, and he's still mad at me for not letting him talk to Zenit when they offered £1.7M for him. Yea, that's the Russian club we hammered twice. Silly Spaniard. Anyways, he's got 4 years left on his contract so I'm not letting him go cheap. I set a £10M price tag on him, but my board will probably accept much less. I probably will to. At the moment only M. Haifa and Tenerife are showing any interest in him though.

The Finances

Still going strong. We didn't spend much on players so I was kind of hoping for a bigger profit than £2.9M, but we didn't really sell much either so. What annoys me is that we're paying £3M in taxes now, that's almost twice as much as last year. Player wages also almost doubled, but it seems we can handle it. We actually got less from gate receipts this year though, even though our average attendance went up to 6552. And I know why, it's the damn season tickets. As more people buy them we get less gate receipts. And we make a lot less selling season tickets than we would have done selling single tickets. Oh well. We are now the 3rd richest club in Scotland after Rangers and Celtic. Still £44M behind Celtic though.

The Scottish Teams in Europe

Rangers got to the group stages of the Champions Cup where they ended last in a group with R. Madrid, Porto and Standard (BEL). Dundee Utd got to the group stages of the EURO Cup, but went out just 1p behind 2nd place in their group. Celtic did a bit better, getting past the group stages and then beating Twente in the 1st KO round. They followed that up with beating Werder Bremen in the 2nd KO round. And they didn't stop there either, as they beat the club we couldn't, Club Brugge, in the Quarter Finals. Sadly in the Semi Final Sporting CP (POR) was to strong, but it was a great run for Celtic which should help Scotlands coefficients.

The Future

A few contracts are running out after next season, but it's mostly the old guys. Lescott, Sidwell, Hutton. I will not offer Lescott and Sidwell new ones, as I think they are getting to old. Hutton I'm not sure about yet. The others running out are Thorpe, Pessis and Alba. I might try to offer Thorpe and Alba new contracts, but Plessis I will most likely let go of now. I should probably try and find another good striker and at least one center back for the future to. I hope we can keep all the first team players, but I'm worried Miquel might leave. If he does Ravel Morrison will have to step up. He's happy now, after a season of moaning and I still think he can make an impact.

Great season there, Ohanzee! Congrats on winning the SPL (former SPL, now CBPL...), you had pure domination. Too bad for dropping from League and Scottish Cup, you'll win it next year I suppose. Good luck in that, as well as retaining Premier League.

I told you you'll pass the group, you did a great job. Shame for Club Brugge, after you won against Roma and Zenit... Also, that de Jong bloke... How could a DC with marking and tackling 10/11 (not excluding off the ball 8) be so good in a TOP10 European league?

Good luck in the future ;)

RIP respectable defensive record :(

You would not think that Pisa are 3rd bottom and had the 2nd worst scoring record in the division :rolleyes:. And, of course, Lazarevic is one of our ex-players as well.

Every single on-target goal in that match resulted in a goal. In one fell swoop we now have conceded more goals than 2 out of the bottom 5.

Despite that, we are still 6th and only out of the playoffs on goal difference. 8 games left.

You would not think that Pisa are 3rd bottom and had the 2nd worst scoring record in the division :rolleyes:. And, of course, Lazarevic is one of our ex-players as well.

Every single on-target goal in that match resulted in a goal. In one fell swoop we now have conceded more goals than 2 out of the bottom 5.

Despite that, we are still 6th and only out of the playoffs on goal difference. 8 games left.

Ouch! that's a defeat and a half... wouldn't have minded being at that game! good luck making the play-offs.... :thup:

The Season in General

Well this season was always going to be about getting back to the spot I had been, and I acheived it by a few good signings in the offseason, some good tactical work with a new 4-3-3 installed, some interesting work in keeping it all going, and good rejecting of contracts. Morale was what lost it for us last year, and this season I worked at keeping that up early. Jorge Fucile left us for the Academica Managers job after I said no. Other teams also wanted Des Tiny to take over, they included, Belenenses and Nigeria.

The League

Well we started excellently in the league this season, for the first time in years we played better at the start than we did at the end. And there were two results that really pleased me above all the others. We won at Sporting 1:0, for our first victory over them, and we also managed to defeat Porto 2:0, this was our first of two victories over them this season. a huge delight as we took the form from these games to push ourselves back into contention for Europe, of course our league position ended up not mattering.

Team Stats

The Cups

Well the Portuguese Cup was a complete disappointment, as for the second year running we drew another top 5 team in the 3rd round and went out straight away.

Player Stats

The Story of the League Cup Victory

Well this was going to be the story of the year for Evora, we first went into the Second Round drawing ourselves against Olhanense & Feirense, and that round was the closest anyone got to us all season as we only just took out that group.

vs Olhanense 5:0

at Feirense 2:2

Second Round Group F

Well we qualified through following a win and a draw to get into what looked like the toughest of all the groups, Maritimo & Porto would both have to travel to us and as that was the case it was going to give us a shot. Well we took it as we went through undefeated, grabbing our 2nd win over Porto, our 3rd ever win over Porto and a good away victory over Beira Mar to pass through.

vs Maritimo 2:1

vs Porto 2:1

at Beira Mar 2:0

Third Round Group B

Next up we had Belenenses coming to visit, as the easiest draw we could've had I was looking forward to passing through to the final. Well we did just that as Cabezas scored the goal to take us through.

Semi: vs Belenenses 1:0

Then it was onto the final at a neutral ground where we would face Benfica, a team we had never defeated, but knowing we had beaten Porto & Sporting for the first time ever we had a chance, so I went out there to attack, first Cabezas gave us the lead with what would be the goal of the season and then Cruz doubled our lead. At this point I thought we should pull back and defend a bit, well they managed to get one through, but after that we really shut up shop and it was ours to be won, the fans were estatic as we took the victory.

Final: vs Benfica 2:1

Win Cup

Euro Cup Qualifying

Europe

Well not even making it to Europe sucks.

The Players

The Squad

Current Teams Stats: This Season & Evora Career.

Goalkeepers

30. Carsten Littmann - The back-up covered for 5 games while Carrera was injured and conceded at 1 goal per game. Very happy with his effort, he is now clearly behind Carrera, but I am delighted by his efforts.

33. Oscar Carrera - The number 1 keeper just seems to get better as the season continue. He concedes at just over 1 goal per game, and he gets a clean sheet in every third game. He has made a few spectacular saves and he will continue as the starter.

Right Backs

63. Oier Torres - Well Torres was in dispute with me all season, and he refused to sign a new contract, he was on the transfer list and no one wanted him either, so he left on a free on July 1st. His actual play on the field was brought down by the poor attitude as well.

80. Alejandro Etxeberria - He was brought as cover for Torres and did well in that job, so he will continue as a back-up in the new season behind our new signing. He is solid when he plays, but never great.

Left Backs

62. Benjamin Addo - A great season from the Evora Captain and really I could not ask for more, a season rating of over 7, even if he only made half of our games because of a mid season injury. Addo is one of a kind and made a trip to the World Cup in June.

93. Gustavo Frangao - He was only slightly better than Paixao, we really need to improve the situation, I did bring in one other left back so its likely these two could go.

98. Carlos Paixao - Well he was disappointing, he was signed as my Addo back-up, but he was so poor he played only 1 game and Frangao took the place back again.

2. Peter Cooper - When Addo got injured I made an impulse purchase to cover the spot, and this was the guy I picked. He ended up playing really well over his games. A good effort and he will stay as our cover.

Centre Backs

4. Francisco "Javier II" Sanchez - With more goals than Cruz or Tsotetsi this year he was good from the spot, or off the corner. Javier II will continue to lead our defense and alongside the players I have added to him. I have no doubt he will be a star for a long time.

92. Romeu Salgado - He was barely needed and as such will probably leave in July when his contract expires.

17. Guglielmo Martinelli - Having dropped to just 11 games he is near that point of being sold on, but he is still good cover on the defensive side of the ball and is on reasonably low wages.

5. Adolfo Silveira Reis - He came in to join Javier in my back line and he ended up havng a lot better season than I expected. Good tackling and a great pass completion rate, he managed a 6.88 rating over the season.

Midfield

47. Matteo Jehl - Yes he is still around, I have been trying to sell him for 3 seasons now, but only been able to get him out on loan. Hopefully he will go in July.

29. Abraham - He made it further up the 100 Club this season, and with just 17 games in the whole year he would be a little disappointed, but he is clearly the 4th best MC.

25. Pablo Cabezas - This one was the biggest loss of the whole lot, he was a superstar for our club all season, he scored a goal in the League Cup final which was the League Cup Goal of the Year, he got double figures of assists, and a rating of 7.28. He is one of the best around, but he would never renew his contract.

24. Sergio Torres - Most of his games were off the bench and his stats reflect this. He will continue to cover the strikers and the midfield into the new season.

42. Paulo Cordeiro - Our only Portuguese player with a chance at top team experience on a regular basis, but he really is just not good enough. His skills don't seem to show up on the park and because of this he has just been used as cover behind the midfield.

26. Ernesto Vazquez - He has really shown that my faith was not unwarranted, he showed great skill as the anchorman in the middle. I am pleased with this young guy and without a doubt he will be a starter in the new season.

21. Alejandro Hunte - For the third season in a row our parent club sent him to us on a loan in January, he got a few games and was solid once more, but he is a level below our stars and will probably get no game time if he comes back again.

Andre Santos - He went all the way to the final game without missing a match and then damaged his neck just prior to our final league game. With the loss of Cabezas he will be looking to become the leader through the middle, he looks good on the ball, he can score goals, and he is very strong. A great player and almost played every game.

Strikers

38. Hector Cruz - This season the Vice-Captain let us down a bit as his production dropped to 9 goals all season. I am hoping I can turn this around into the new season. He seemed to just go on and off the boil a lot.

11. Theo Tsotetsi - The young South-African only scored 9 goals in the entire season, this was a little bit of a disappointment. I will be hoping that the few small changes to my tactic will create more chances for those boys at the front.

99. Roberto Martin - He spent most of the season as the fourth back, and he was very disappointing across the board. Without scoring a goal in 15 games he was the worst of our lot by a long, long way. He will continue as a back-up, but thats about all really.

84. Joao Cruz - One of the youth players who will just get a game here and there when I need a sub to cover injuries.

10. Wilson Mateus - He was the top goalscorer on the season with 12, but that was also disappointing, he was the 2nd of our players to make it to the World Cup, and hopefully he can use that experience to come back and score goals for our club.

Thoughts on 2022/23

Well the board have given me another new contract, with a three year extension. I would like to bring in Tomas, probably more for his fiery red hair than his skill, but he looks stunning. I think in the new year we can push for a top 3 slot, and also get through to the knock out stages of the Euro Cup given the strength of our side. We are definitely one of the best in the league now. Well considering our low wage budget. Given there are 162 players in the world earning more than my entire team.

The Signings So Far

Pablo Roman (DC) - I have signed him as a third option at the back alongside Sanchez & Reis, he is the perfect compliment to these guys, and clearly strengthens my team.

Gabriel Bazan (MLC) - He has been signed as a replacement to our midfield star Cabezas, hopefully with him, Vazquez & Santos across the middle we can run this league. (Brazil, Spain & Argentina)

Ferhat Yildiz (DR) - With Oier Torres refusing to re-sign with the club I needed a replacement and I found him almost straight away, delighted with the signing here. He will compliment our back line and at only 18 he can step straight in and start.

These three signings, plus a few other changes have really removed the Spanish domination of our squad, our starting XI is now: ESP (5), TUR, GHA, BRA, ARG, RSA & COL. And on the bench we have ESP (5), USA & POR.

On a side note, why am I not in the Hall of Fame? New Zealand only has one slot with Ricki Herbert on top, but surely the League Cup should get me a spot?

Congrats again on the League Cup and getting back into Europe LLR! :thup:

You got Santos on a 3 year deal, that's awesome! I would consider selling Cruz if he doesn't sign a new contract to be honest. That's two rather bad seasons for him now? I see he's still worth £1.3M with one year left to, if you can get £2-3M for him by offering him out I'd do it, but you know him better than me. :) The new signings look great to.

No idea about the hall of fame, never really understood that system. :confused:

Venezia - Serie A - Season Review - Season 2017/18

apologies for the poor standard of update, but i want to get the review over with - besides i don't think there was too much worth writing about really........

Media Prediction: 20th

League Finish: 20th Graph

Humiliating.... Embarassing... Demoralising... Three words to sum up the worst ever season on Football Manager. A season which gave me some optimism ended with a dismal return of 3 wins from 38 games ensuring we crashed back down to Serie B with a big bump. A 19 match run without a win was halted only after our relegation was confirmed. I tried everything to halt the run - almost every tactic and strategy was tried at some point, but all were to no avail... It's difficult to make this season sound interesting, so i won't.

Transfers

Squad 1 Squad 2

I am only highlighting a few players as most of them were awful:

Koke - played pretty well all things considered. He will continue to run the midfield this season.

Camolese - despite all my reports saying he isn't good enough, club captain Camolese was once more one of our better players and coped with the step up.

Cannone - despite wanting to leave, Cannone had another good season. heopfully he's happy to stay again, kind of.

Orosz - Top Scorer this season, Janos was the only striker who adapted to life in Serie A.

Danilo - Broke into the starting line up at the end of the season after arriving at Venezia a couple of seasons earlier, and has secured his future at the club. heavily wanted however, he insists he wants to stay. One to keep an eye on.

Finances

Decent profit made due to our top flight status. The figures are skewed a bit by late season player sales. still we're pretty healthy.

>>> TARGETS FOR NEW SEASON <<<

- Promotion. despite a busy summer we are still in my opinion capable of promotion so that's the aim.

- that's it

So we are back in Serie B. Can we make it back to Serie A at the first attempt??? Stay tuned folks!

FORZA LAGUNARI!!

Well, too bad for relegation, but when players like Danilo are in your TOP5, then I'd say you should lower your expetations in Serie A. That Hungarian, Orosz, is way better than any other mentioned player and it doesn't surprise me that he was your top scorer. You should bring some new faces in your squad and win your way back to Serie A. Good luck with that ;)

i'm not saying they are my top 5 players but actually those that did best. i have a lot of better players than Danilo for example - they just didn't perform so i didn't mention them. Danilo has great potential which is why i played him at end of season.

As for new faces there has been plenty and i'll introduce them at the end of pre-season.

Good luck rlipscombe. Hope you can bounce right back up. :thup:

I haven't had time to start my pre-season yet myself. Might have a little go now, if I don't fall a sleep.

Ohanzee: Thanks, I was delighted to win the league cup and make it through to Europe. Yeah I managed to sign some long term deals on most of my stars, except Cabezas, Guerra and now Cruz & Abraham who I have shipped out for 2.6M & 1M respectively, they both leave in January. Cruz is off to Turkey, and Abraham is heading to Italy. The hall of fame confuses me, hopefully I can get on there at some point.

croman: Thanks for the Congrats. And a good right back? Yildiz is definitely a huge improvement on what I had, I am now looking for Addo's replacement at Left Back.

rlipscombe: Thanks for the congrats, hopefully I can keep it up. A crud season from your boys there, I really hate it when you have some good players but they just fail to perform as they should. I have just signed a combined 5 Strikers or Midfielders with potential that I am hoping to get one good one out of and sell the rest in 6-12 months time, I need to find that player to line up with Tsotetsi & Mateus. Hopefully you can get straight back up.

Venezia - Serie B - Pre-Season Round-up - Season 2018-19

Having finally made it through pre-season, it is the right time to introduce the new imports who will (hopefully) see us bounce back up to Serie A.

Transfers

Goalkeepers

Devis Terranova - Young Italian youth international goalkeeper signed from Reggina for £1.5 million. Despite his tender age, i have decided to give him a chance as he is good enough. He has started the season as No. 1

Full Backs

Carlos Gomes - Portugese youth international signed from Belenenses. Will initially provide cover to Mich McInnes who has stayed at the club.

Antonio Ortega - Young Spaniard signed from Sevilla. One for the future, he will play for the U20s this season.

Rick Ploeger - Having spent all summer looking for a LB, Rick was finally chosen and signed from Groningen. Signed mainly for the future due to his potential, he will provide stiff competition for this role.

Centre Backs

Rasmus Bengtsson - Experienced Swede signed from PSV for some experience. Will mainly provide cover i think and help develop some of the younger defenders at the club.

Adam Magee - Our first American, Adam is another with plenty of potential. Already has a Continental reputation, i think Adam could play an important role for the club for a number of years.

Danny Dannemark - Young Belgian CB signed very much with one eye on the future.

Andrea Adamo - Italian CB signed from Rangers. Ummed and Aahed about signing him, he will provide further quality to our defence.

Midfielders

Ottavio Mattioli - My biggest summer signing, joining for £7.5 million from PSV. Offers real quality already, he could be Koke's midfield partner for years to come.

Umit Korkmaz - Experienced Austrian winger brought in to offer strength in depth and to help develop our young wingers. Could be one of the signings of the season, having cost nothing.

Strikers

Ronald Lintner - Austrian youth striker signed from Red Bull Salzburg. Good potential, he will provide strength in depth up front.

Cedric Cavada - Another youth international, this time from Switzerland.

Oscar Cardozo - Veteran Paraguay international striker signed on a free. Played a couple of games on trial, i just had to sign him. Wish push Orosz and Danilo for a starting place.

So that's it. You'll notice quite a few players left over the summer, the main players being Menendez, Di Gennaro, Valdes, Yevdokimov and Leandro Lima all after one season. I also took the tough decision to sell all-time top goalscorer Esteban Schmitt as he had one year left on his contract and we had strengthened our striking options. Was a tough call but after last season i have to be ruthless.

Pre-season went pretty well and we have made it to the 4th qualifying round of the Italian Cup. However we have a 0-1-1 record in the league although i'm not too worried as both were tough away games. Hopefully we get our first win under our belt ASAP.

FORZA LAGUNARI!!

Amazing transfers. Lots of youngsters with a couple of expirienced players. Terranova, Mattioli, Cavada and Cardoso look particulary great. Good luck in your comeback season ;)

Looks good rlipscombe. I like all the strikers a lot. And the youngsters Ortega, Magee, and Dannemark look great for their age. Mattioli looks worth the value as well, especially on a 5 year deal at his age. You should get a lot out of him. Good luck. :thup:

cheers croman. i'm happy with my signings in the end. All of the youngsters have got good serie A potential so i am hoping they can realise it with us! i will be disappointed if we don't get straight back up. Bologna and Parma who came down with us are on a level with us so i don't really fear either of them right now.

we shall see.

FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin, 2029-30, Ligue 1

League Position - 17th: Past Positions

Squad

Transfers, part 2

Summary

This was easily the worst season we've had since being promoted to Ligue 2. We only avoided relegation by one goal, which is incredible when you think about it in depth. The squad is too small but finances at the club are looking very bleak, so whether I'll be able to bring many new players in next season will be interesting and probably quite depressing.

Onze de départ

GK: Josip Grnja, 30, Croatia - The Croatian goalkeeper is of very good quality, the only downside is that he has high wage requests.

[/url]DR: Jérôme Hebert, 28, France - FCLSS's own Hebert was played primarily at right back this season, where he played well.

DL: Francisco Arbizu, 26, Honduras - The Honduras international was brought in this season and excelled in his position of left back.

DC: Iker Aramaio, 18, Spain - An absolute steal for what I payed, he has the potential to be one of the best defenders in the league.

DC: Vladimir Stokic, 27, Bosnia & Herz. - A decent season for Stokic.

MR: Brice Toure, 22, Ivory Coast - A new signing, he's a good young right midfielder who booted Hebert out of the MR position this season. He hasn't yet achieved his potential though, which is a slight concern.

ML: Stephen Sharp, 25, Scotland - The Scottish midfielder had a good season for the team on the left side of midfield, he was one of the top scorers of the campaign with 6 goals.

MC: Hakan Koot, 30, Holland - The experienced Dutch midfielder was brought in this year and did a good job in midfield.

MC: Matthieu Causse, 33, France - Appointed captain following the retirement of the legendary Sergio Marbus, Causse did well in the games he featured in this season. He hasn't shown too many signs of getting worse as a player so should continue to play for the club in the next few years.

ST: Donovan Leferink, 25, Holland - He improved on last season but he still was a massive disappointment for the club. I'm very worried about the striker situation at the club.

ST: Razvan Ionica, 32, Romania - Despite being tipped as useless for the last 2 season's by the staff at the club he still comes up with goals. He's not really that great and he wouldn't be playing if I could actually manage to sign a striker who could score goals on a consistent basis.

Casertana - Serie C1/A 2011-12

Improving the squad

During the previous season in C2 my squad lacked DC's owned by Casertana (except for the veteran Daniele Adani) and I had to rely heavily on loan central defenders. Come the new season I decided to concentrate on finding some decent defenders I could sign:

DC – Riccardo Fissore (unattached)

DC – Luca Nuzzolese (£18K from Juventus – the first transfer where money was involved)

SW D RC WB R – Duccio Innocenti (Empoli)

D WB MRL – Gianluca Galasso (unattached)

In addition I snapped up Swiss/Italian:

DM MC – Simone Grippo (unattached)

All the rest of the new players were loan signins mostly from the parent club Palermo.

The season of 2011-12

Cups

Nothing much to say about cups. Got to the 2nd qualifying round of the Italian Cup by beating C1/A rivals Ravenna, but then lost to Serie B Pescara. In the Serie C cup I trounced poor C2/C Prato 0 – 5, but then lost 4 - 0 against C1/A Cremonese. While in the lower leagues I really don't pay much attention to cups and prefere to do as well as possible in the league.

C1/A

The media prediction was 17th – only one position above the automatic relegation place. I didn't let this sort of silly predictions bother me though the reporter for the local football rag kept on talking about relegation rivals. Somehow he eventually dropped the subject as Casertana never was lower than 4th during the whole campaign. Two teams, namely Casertana and Frosinone, were head and shoulders above the rest and every now and then swapped positions on the table switching between the 1st and 2nd spots. In the end 4 points separeted the teams. Casertana 1st and Frosinone 2nd. :)

Pavia were the winners of C1/B, so I played against them in the Serie C1 Supercup. Won both encounters of the 2 legged competion. Two titles this season!

I think this is 4th consecutive promotion for Casertana: 08-09 promotion to Serie D (IRL) and then 09-10 to C2 etc. Also the club have not played 2 consecutive seasons on same level since 06-07. :)

Screenies

League table | League graph

Transfers | Squad at the end of the season

Roberto Grimaudo – Was good in C2 and performed very well in C1 aswell. Fans player of the year.

Francesco Pittaresi - The top goal scorer

Vincenzo Orlando – 17yr old DM. Could cement his place in the first 11 in the future

Luca Nuzzolese – DC who is young, tall, strong and slow. He began the season as a backup, but towards the end of the campaign played well enough to be in the first 11 with increasing regularity. Looks very promising.

Duccio Innocenti – Experienced player who is natural only at DR and WB R, but played mostly as a DC.

Board takeover - A new board took over the club. Too bad no investments towards the tranfer kitty were made.

Massimo Landro - A mugshot of the new chairman Landro

Freedom of the city - After some success Casertana fans petitioned the mayor to give me the freedom of the city. Have not heard of it since. Either the fans didn't bother with the petition after all, or the mayor didn't like the idea. ;)

Devis Terranova - Young Italian youth international goalkeeper signed from Reggina for £1.5 million. Despite his tender age, i have decided to give him a chance as he is good enough. He has started the season as No. 1

Look like a very good prospect. Hopefully he is not one who feels pressure from public expectations. Do you have an older keeper who would be suitable to tutor him?

I have just been offered 8.75M for Tsotetsi, all by foreign clubs, thats the sort of payment that will completely fix my finances, but he is the best Striker in the league by a long way...tempted to say no, but I know it will annoy him, I just don't know if I can find an ample replacement elsewhere...

Well in the end it didn't matter, the board accepted the offer for me just before the deadline and Tsotetsi is off to Juventus for the new season for 8.75M

£8.75M is a very good offer for that player, mate ;)

You'll find a replacement, he can't be that good (by his screens) ;)

By the way, when can we expect the new report?

tough choice that Des but i think i'd have taken it - timing of the move wasn't good though. did you get a replacement in?

unlucky Paul - that's a worrying slump down the league. at least you stayed up.

Duccio - congrats on the title and another promotion. good luck in Serie B. Orlando looks a good prospect.

The Squad: Goalies/Defense & Midfield/Strikers

Transfers: 2022/23

The Season in General

Well we made a few transfers that were based on getting money for players who would not sign new contracts. And this helped our balance a little bit, but we were still losing money every month. We did manage to get up to third in the league, and we have a great back row, an excellent midfield and a pretty good striking core, even with the losses of Tsotetsi & Cruz we have good strikers. We just need more money as there are still soooo many players we cannot afford as our max weekly wage is 6k for the best players, and the best want 10-30k per week. Working on it slowly.

The League

We started brilliantly in the league as we led the way early on after a small battle with Feirense at the start and Benfica dropped as low as 12th at one point, and they had to fight back to try and get their top 3 slot back, our final run in confirmed them as 4th behind the excellent Evora season in 3rd. We didn't score as many goals as we have in the past, but without a doubt we have got waaaay better on defense.

The Cups

We were solid in both cups reaching the top 8 of the Portuguese Cup & Top 4 of the League Cup, we also managed to win the U19 Cup this season.

Europe

We were disappointing in our second jaunt into Europe as we dropped out on away goals before making the group stage. Which was my own minimum expectation.

The Players

The Squad

Current Teams Stats: This Season

Goalkeepers

33. Oscar Carrera - He is the king of the net, playing 44 games for 23 clean sheets is a huge effort by Carrera, he is definitely a large part of the reason we got the league position we did this season. There have been a few prospects looked at as his replacement, but I think with his age he has a huge future as shown by his 2nd place in the Goalie of the Year award.

Defense

3. Pablo Roman - He had a great season at the back, our defenders were amazing this season and Roman was just one part of this. The only disappointment on his side of things was the red card which cost us a match in the middle of the season.

4. Francisco Javier Sanchez - Wow Wow Wow, 13 goals, 6 assists, 7 Man of the Match awards, 11 yellow cards, 2 red cards and a rating of 7.68. This guy is a superstar, he is the very best Central defender in the league, and probably one of the best in the world. Even more so when you consider his price tag as opposed to the big names.

36. Ferhat Yildiz - Now this young Turk surprised even me, I knew from his look that he would be good, but this was beyond my wildest dreams, he was one of the best Right Backs I have seen in the history of my days in management. He is only 19 which just makes the whole thing even more incredible.

62. Benjamin Addo - He may be getting on a bit, but even at 29 Addo is the best Left Back around, he can do everything, and in my team that includes running right up to the byline and crossing it to our strikers. 10 assists and 8 Man of the Match awards.

5. Adolfo Silveira Reis - He started the season ahead of Roman, but he didn't keep his spot, but even coming off the bench Reis was one of the best central defenders in the league. Watch for a rotation policy in 2023/24.

63. Peter Kalu - Addo's replacement, he is young, and fast. He has the exact skills that he needs to take the place, but he needs to be satisfied with limited game time until Addo leaves the club.

80. Alejandro Etxeberria - He doesn't play too much, but provides cover for Right back in a solid way.

Midfield

26. Ernesto Vazquez - Our deep-lying playmaker has some amazing skill he put in some great efforts at the end of the season as he worked towards us finishing third. 6 assists and 2 goals seems low, but he was using his other midfielders for the final pass a lot of the time.

16. Gabriel Bazan - The young Argentinian has put in some great effort this season, he actually ended poorly and his average rating dropped a little because of it, but he is still and integral part of the Evora bandwagon.

13. Andre Santos - The star of our midfield, Santos has shown that my faith in him following the sale of Cabezas was correct, I put him into the main role in the midfield and he showed it was right, 8 goals, 5 assists and a great rating over 7 for the season. He has been saying he may want to leave, but he is contracted for another 2 seasons yet.

17. Guglielmo Martinelli - Another one of the players who have been around for a long time as a back-up he is getting a bit restless, but he is still managing to do a great job for us through the middle. Expect him to stay around for at least one more year.

24. Sergio Torres - He is about to become the player with the most sub appearances in Evora history, but he needs to stick around. He has a huge advantage being able to cover Striker and Midfield. And on top of that he is solid in every game he plays.

42. Paulo Cordeiro - He is the constant back-up in my midfield and he will keep that position going forward unless I can find someone better for a cheaper price. He managed to take the park in 34 games.

Strikers

10. Wilson Mateus - The Colombian is one of our best strikers, and with Theo leaving he is the best. He will be leading the line into the new season as I look to try and get an increase in goals from him in the new year.

11. Theo Tsotetsi - The Hot Prospect from South Africa is off to Italy in the new season, but he showed this season what he can do, even when he was injured in a reserve game (I made an error playing them all during a 2 week break), and that put him out for the end of the season. I am happy to have got 8.75M for him.

44. Johnny Myklebust - Well this was one signing I made in January that paid off without a doubt, he became the first striker to score on a regular basis from the middle striker slot. He got 7 goals in 11 games including a deluightful hattrick.

1. Haris Zeric - One of our back-up strikers who joined in January, he didn't do anything amazing, but he will stick around as a solid cover.

53. Santtu Haataja - The Finn came in January and he was average to say the least, but hopefully he can put some form together in the new season as he was clearly selected as one of the ones who should stay with the club.

8. Florent Gilbert - He came on loan from January and was one of the better covers we had in the second half of the season, if I can get him to come again he will be here in a flash.

Thoughts of the Future

I am hoping to advance to the Knockout stages of the Euro Cup this season, and also to attempt to get into the top 2 in the Liga Sagres so I can actually have a shot at the Champions League. Other than that, I may sell some more stars if I can replace them so that I can get money to improve my squad somewhat more.

Great season Des even with the european disappointment. you've got some really good players there - Yildiz is immense for his age and i like Carrera and Andre Santos. hopefully you can get a good replacement for Tsotetsi and push for a CL place next season....

i had forgotten how frustrating Serie B can be.... After eight games we're 3-2-3 and mid-table. saying that it's really tight so we are in the pack. if i can tighten the defence we could be away.

The Liga Sagres can be the same for most of the season there is only about 5-10 points separating 5th & 14th, it doesn't look like there is a player out there to replace Tsotetsi that will come to my club. I will keep looking though.

Well I made just two signings, one Striker, not really a replacement, but someone who will do the job. And a goalkeeper to be a back-up and possibly as a look to the future.

Erik Graziani (ST) - This guy is getting on a bit, but he is definitely very complimentary to Myklebust & Mateus. I think between the three of them I should be in control. Zeric would be the next man down the list.

Pedro (GK) - An 18 year old goalkeeper with tonnes of potential, he will just play as cover as he is cheap.

So having sold 15 players for a total of 9.75M and only bringing in two on frees has meant I was given a 1.8M transfer budget, but that was used to pay the 20% fee on Tsotetsi, but I am still about 25k under my wage budget. And have 75k worth of transfer if I need it. I am going to be patient and just buy when I need to. Target is same as last season Qualify for Europe. We are odds on for 4th= with Maritimo.
