San Giovanni - Campionato Sammarinese - 2016/17

League Table

League Positions Graph

Again we started off badly, then had a winning streak, a losing streak, and another winning streak to win the title 1-0 against Folgore.

Coppa Titano - A great time in the Cup, only one loss this year and we ended up beating Murata, our old bogey team in the final.

Squad - Only got rid of 2 players, honestly I should have gotten rid of Andrea Pedretti aswell...

Finances - Looking very strong thanks too prize money, yet we still can't afford to turn Professional.

Youth Players at the club:

Andrea Pedretti (YP1) - Only gotten 10 appearances since he came through the Youth System, I'm thinking that it maybe time for him to move on.

Raoul Belmonte (YP2) - He's great, and still growing, since the screenshot he's also gotten 2 more San Marino caps to his name.

Valerio Borrello (YP6) - He has vastly exceeded my expectations, scored 8 goals and broken records, 5 MoM awards and 19 assists in all competitions.

Allessandro Rossini (YP7) - 35 appearances but a couple of attributes dropped at the end of the season, still he is only 18 and has 15-20 years ahead of him.

Simone Morelli (YP10) - Made 1 Youth team appearance and scored a penalty, made 1 San Marino U21 appearance and scored 2, a star for the future I think.

Why do you just write that you finished 2nd in the group but not write the results of the playoffs succh as you won the title? :/ great finances btw, can't quite believe that they can't afford turning pro. At least semi-pro should be available with that much money, it's not like footballers earn a fortune in San Marino

I don't really know, I just don't do it, it's a lot easier for me just putting the Groups, finances will only get better with European football now.

WE'RE THROUGH!!!!!!

We were 10-1 outsiders and after going down to 10 men in the 55th minute I thought we had no chance but Michele Pratelli scored in the 83rd minute! Santa Coloma had a chance to equalise in the 88th minute but thankfully missed the penalty.

We go through to face Azerbajani team Qarabag Agdam in the 2nd Qualifier. Rhyl beat Racing FC 2-1 agg

I think you new chairman is this guy he is from Carcarañá, with the extra money from Europe should have a good chance of going semi.

Thanks, glad you've enjoyed it so far, I'll probably have another couple of seasons done over the weekend for you to check up on.

I've made a bit of progress, we're miles away from the aim but there's no rush, I have 11 months to do this. And after the Champions league we have over 1m in the finances but still can't afford to go Semi-Pro, but we can ask the board for a better Transfer & Wage Budget.

Obviously you are in the top division or you wouldnt be in Europe :p but how do the play-offs work because it obviously doesnt show who won the title on the league table only?

The Play-offs really confuse me, I still don't know how they work but the teams that finish 1st in their Groups go into the Champions Playoff Fourth Round, and the teams in 2nd & 3rd go into the Champions Playoff First Round

Wow, I think that is him since our Chairman is Argentinian it definitely gives it some validity.

It's good to know that if you don't get what you want, that if you say you can't continue your roll at the club if it's not accepted, the board accepts :D

Awesome, that puts you on the same level as some of the top clubs in Europe. Now you'll have to wait for your board to allow you to become semi-pro, so that the next Morelli that comes through (:( at him being poached) won't be stolen that easily. :thup:

San Giovanni - Campionato Sammarinese - 2017/18

League Table

League Position Graph

League Fixtures

I don't understand why we're so bad at the start of the season, we almost always go bottom for atleast one game of the season. Thankfully we always pick up mid-season and we won the league for the 3rd time.

Coppa Titano - We breezed through the Group Stages but just couldn't beat La Fiorita in the Quarter Finals.

Squad - I let the older 1/2* players go and now we have a smaller squad where Andrea Pedretti (YP1) is the oldest player, age 22 and the squad average age is 17.

Finances - We're 1.1M in the black and most of that is set to improving the Training Facilities, I want enough money to go Semi-Professional.

Youth Players at the club:

Andrea Pedretti (YP1) - Made 4 appearances this year, but only got a 6.32 rating, also the oldest player at the club now, not very impressive.

Raoul Belmonte (YP2) - The captain of the team and the key player most of the time he scored 6 and assisted 12 he is also on 14 caps for the National Team now with an average rating of 7.13.

Valerio Borrello (YP6) - An average sort of season for Valerio, 6 goals and 10 assists, not far behind Raoul and got an average rating of 7.02

Allessandro Rossini (YP7) - Our only goalkeeper, he's good, not very consistent though but then again, he is only 19.

Giovanni Cambi (YP11) - The good player from this years batch, hopefully he won't do as others have done for the last couple of years and join another club in the Pre-season.

We lost 10-1 on agg to FK Austria Wien and then get this:

So 4 years later and how did we fare?

We conceded 12 again but this time we managed to score against them.

"Junior coaching is how well your youth players are coached before they are generated into the game. It will therefore mostly affect their starting CA." - Quote from Stu Coleman.

Seems that's the best thing to improve for you right now: in San Marino your youngsters won't improve much even with first team match exposure, because the level of the league is so low and they're on amateur contracts, so it's best to have them good enough to start immediately.

There's between 20 & 24 league games per season, between 8 & 13 Cup games plus whatever European games there are.

The game goes faster because there are only 2000 players loaded and no background detail and everything in the detail level is set to none.

League Table

League Position Graph

League Fixtures

We started off better this year, I don't think we are the dominant team in San Marino yet as we still get quite a few losses each year, but we managed to get to the final where we beat Virtus 3 - 2

Coppa Titano - Only one loss in the group stages and we ended up winning the final against Juvenes Dogana

European Champions Cup - We managed to easily beat Bangor City 4-2 before expecting to get hammered by Mogren, we won 3-2, we then did get hammered by FK Austria Wien 10-1 putting us into the EURO Cup.

EURO Cup - The less said the better, it was the same as 4 years ago, we were utterly destroyed.

Squad - I got rid of (YP1) he didn't play a game all season so it was for the best I thought.

Finances - 650K in the black our finances plummeted when we made new Training Facilities.

Youth Players at the club:

Raoul Belmonte (YP2) - His stats dropped towards the end of the season but he is rated as the best player in San Marino.

Valerio Borrello (YP6) - Started getting assists again, 6 goals, 12 assists and now capped for San Marino.

Allessandro Rossini (YP7) - Oddly not the first choice anymore, we now have a goalkeeper who I payed no attention too when he came through the Youth..

Giovanni Cambi (YP11) - The first Youth in a while that stayed with the club over Pre-Season and at 17 he's already been capped twice for San Marino, also got 5 goals and 8 assists so not bad.

Remio Aielli (YP12) - I really hope he stays at the club over Pre-season, the best person too come through the Youth System so far, I've started training his composure so he can try and be the goal machine next year.

Thanks, I'm going to hopefully get to the 3rd Qualifying round again this year since we have been given pretty easy draws in my opinion.

Good supply of reasonable youngsters there.

Yea, A couple of my youngsters without the (YP) have suprised me in being really good, like we have a couple of awesome defenders now.

The European draws have been done:

EURO Cup 1st Qualifying Round:

Virtus vs IFK Norrkoping

Folgore vs Ferencvaros

European Champions Cup 1st Qualifying Round:

San Giovanni vs Llanelli

European Champions Cup 2nd Qualifying Round:

San Giovanni or Llanelli vs Shamrock Rovers

Fabio La Mura (YP4) - History

Simone Santunione (YP5) - History

Claudia Persico (YP8) - History

Andrea Ferrari (YP9) - History

Simone Morelli (YP10) - History

They've all been pretty dissapointing in not yet reaching potential and most club hop each season.
