I know how he got the Cameroonian knowledge!

It's from when I had to make Martino Bazzoli 2.0, Yazar Yazici walked out as an Assistant Manager so I tried to find the highest profile ex-player who would be our new Assistant, that turned out to be ex-Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o with 172 caps & 110 goals.

P.S. Quick, save it! :p

after reading this you have inspired me to do my own San Marino save but with Fiorentino....3rd season now but players keep bottling in it in the championship playoffs...you reckon that could be because the average age of my team is 19? pressure getting to the kids?

San Giovanni - Campionato Sammarinese - 2030/31

League Table

League Position Graph

Domestic Fixtures

A much better domestic season, a lot of green dots and yet it still took us a few weeks to get into first place.

Coppa Titano - Easily won again, with loads of goals, winning the Semi-Finals 5-3 and winning the Final 5-1.

European Champions Cup & EURO Cup - A loss to APOEL put us in a EURO Cup Group with Lille, Fiorentina & Zenit, and for the first time in a Continental competition we actually looked like we could win, we didn't, but it looked like we could.

Squad - Transfers - We made a £925,000 profit from selling 3 players even if I didn't get the £600,000...

Finances - £11,750,000 in the black and the Youth Facilities are going to be upgraded again!

Youth Players:

Raoul Belmonte (YP2)

Remo Aielli (YP12)

Angelo Perra (YP13)

after reading this you have inspired me to do my own San Marino save but with Fiorentino....3rd season now but players keep bottling in it in the championship playoffs...you reckon that could be because the average age of my team is 19? pressure getting to the kids?

It might be, just try doing team meetings to get morale up, sometimes it has a drastically opposite effect though, just keep trying and you'll win :thup:

I have a test save in andorra that has all infra-structure maxed outand with a youth recruitment at lvl 9 i never had a player like that in the almost 10 years i played the save. Really impressed with the player!

Raoul Belmonte (YP2) - Retires age 34!

What can I say, 19 seasons at the club, at one point he was the best player in San Marino but then more Italian imports came in and the standard of San Marino improved....and the rest is history

I say an easy win, and it's time to see what happens when I partner Remo Aielli (YP12) with Enrico Chiodo (YP23)

We went into this game 12-1 outsiders with the media "predicting Zestaponi to put 3 or 4 past us by half time" well, how wrong the media were!

And we get the easiest draw in the 3rd Qualifier against either Qarabag Agdam or TNS, I'm seriously hoping we play Qarabag Agdam as back in 2017 we went against them and lost 10-3, then in 2022 we had a rematch and won 4-2, so this will be a good game to see how much we've progressed!

Great result that one. If I was manager of the other team, I'd be very angry that I had 64% possession and not only didn't score, but conceded 6.

Enrico Chiodo looks like he could be some player as well. Progressing nicely! :)

Well we beat Qarabag Agdam 5-1 and placed in the playoffs against Red Star and here's how it went:

Read all the way through and a great thread, great progress. I hope you can upgrade your stadium soon for more seats, you're missing on a lot of European ticket revenue. Great job!

Dude you've done so much since I've been gone :D Great job, really. I really missed reading your story. Tough luck with those games and Chiodo, but hopefully he'll be back. I think we were talking about 200 years but it looks like you may as well, make it in 150

Theres always some hope, I've taken a screenshot of his stats and will take another when he returns from injury, to see if he drops to much.

So glad to see this back up and running again. Such a shame about Centofanti though, is there anything more frustrating than one of your best players leaving the club on a free?

hey man, you have so much money.. don't they let you improve your youth recruitment? If they do, you should.. It will cost yeah, but it will do wonders, I'm sure. And don't worry, he won't lose too many attributes. It'll just take some time for him to get better. Let's hope he doesn't become injury prone. Fingers crossed ;)

And so it happens again...

we have YP 12, 16 & 18 leaving at the end of the season and another couple of players, including the San Giovanni player who's had the most appearances....I'm sensing a halt of "success" until new good youths come through and fill the gaps left by these players.
