If I get a month or so off I might have to make some more money ;)

It is what you get when you tell an accounting student to play a game based on money ;)

Thanks deadfncat :)

WOW, just had the greatest game I have ever seen.

I was playing KFS at home. THe first half went well, we controlled the ball and were pressuring all the time. We came out for the second half and carried on but they managed to counter attack and scored after barely seeing the ball for 60 minutes. We then went on an attacking strategy and got one back in the 71st minute, the time rolled on but it didn't look like we could get the win. Then in the 5th minute of stoppage time we got a corner, up rises Olafsson and scores his first goal for the club! It took us 3 points clear at the top of the league!

Highlights:

The next match will decide the winner this season I think. I am 3 points clear of Hvot and I'm playing them next, the winner SHOULD then walk the rest.

At home I won the match 2-0.

After that boring 0-0 draw my team really pulled it out:

[video=youtube;XFnV-2exItg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFnV-2exItg[/video]

I'm now 6 points clear, but one of the teams has a game in hand.

And then for one of teams that were 6 points behind:

[video=youtube;dW5vz0QmbpY]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW5vz0QmbpY[/video]

They scored 82nd minute and I pulled it back to 2-1, my team rocks!

9 points clear, one team has 1 game in hand but 1 more draw is enough to seal the league!

Some nice goals in your 4-0 win. Did Crouch score the second as it was a lovely touch for that goal.

Also I think your toilets have sprung a leak as you have a strange puddle out side the one end of your maximum security compound.

We have had a bit of a problem with the local water company.. I think that some of their staff are taking too much time playing football for me :P

My top strikers have finishing of 10 and composure of 10 and they can pull off stunning shots like that but miss an open goal, it's incredible!

Well this stunning 2-1 comeback helped us:

[video=youtube;gLB2oxq4rYw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLB2oxq4rYw[/video]

League Table:

Sindri - 7 points
KFK - 4 points
Grundarfjorour - 3 points
Huginn - 1 point

That last win put us through, I knew it was mathematically possible and I proved it!

I have never been so happy to be promoted, ever!

[b][u][SIZE="4"]Season 2 Revue - Deild Karla B Rioill:[/SIZE][/u][/b]

[SIZE="3"]Finances[/SIZE]

The [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/20.jpg]finances[/url] are looking good this year! Those early friendlies have definitely helped me gain a good bank balance, with larger crowds coming as well we might be able to soon turn a profit every month!

[SIZE="3"]Transfers[/SIZE]

These are my [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/21.jpg]transfers[/url] for the season. Those who left where fringe and not really up to much. I'm hoping to loan a good number of players next year in order to stay up.

[SIZE="3"]Results[/SIZE]

Here are my [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/22.jpg]results[/url]. This being my first full season we did very well! During the main part of the season we had only lost twice, and only once in the league!The [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/23.jpg]main league table[/url] shows that we simply walked it, no one really managed to keep up with us. However the playoffs were much harder, as you can see by the [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/24.jpg]league table[/url], we only just scarped through but I'm hoping we can stay up as I don't like the promotion system here.

[size="2"]Key Players[/size]

1. [b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/25.jpg]Beitir Olafsson.[/url][/b] Second year, and still the top player. 9 clean sheets, 9 conceded in 15 appearances. I am surprised big clubs haven't come sniffing but I'm very happy to keep him!

2. [b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/26.jpg]Ingvar Danielsson.[/url][/b] The only one of my starting and sub strikers that I actually own, 4 in 11 games with 3 assists is about as good as I can get.

3. [b][url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/27.jpg]Sindri Steinarsson.[/url][/b] The best defender I have, currently ay Haukar but he contract is running out and hopefully I can snap him up.

If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

[SIZE="3"]Finances[/SIZE]

The [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/29.jpg]finances[/url] are looking good, after last years title win and massive amount of friendlies I am well into the black. With a similar number again this year I am looking to make some serious money!

[SIZE="3"]Transfers[/SIZE]

These are my [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/30.jpg]transfers[/url] during the off season. Most of the loans are now from the Premier division reserves which means I am getting some good quality in, I have been hunting around for some good players as well in the transfer market but yet to find some real jems. I am signing a lot of staff currently though, a can have up to 4 coaches and 6 scouts so I might finally get some better players in!

[size="3"]Season Expectations[/size]

The board let me choose this season what I wanted to achieve and I choose [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/28.jpg]Attempt To Avoid Relegationr[/url]. My goal is to survive, I should do that but there was no point in selecting a higher expectation as I didn't need the more wages, still with my new players I should stand a fighting chance of competing. The media don't like my chances and rate me as [url=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/flamers1500/FM11/31.jpg]100-1 outsiders[/url] strangely this is better than last season but not exactly great!

Next match saw us travel to Trinidad and Tobago, simply we were outclassed. Credit to our defence as without them it would have easily been 4 or 5 against us.

I was 13-2 outsiders for this match. My new striker seems to be fitting in well, scoring 6 in his first match!

The goal they scored was actually impressive though...
