[FM16] San Giovanni - A Sammarinese youth only challenge

Recommended Posts

You'll be like "Stay in school, kid" to most of them I suppose :lol:

Pretty much. I usually only sign three or four of them, so most of them can chase their real dreams and become an architect.

Season Review

Campionato Sammarinese:

Table

Schedule

20 wins out of 20, and a run of 14 clean sheets. Not bad.

Coppa Titano:

Table

Schedule

20 goals scored, 0 conceded, and another cup win.

Squad

Key Players:



Highest Average Rating:

Massimo Bernardi (YP142) - 8.14

The best CM we've had in quite a while.

Top Goalscorer:

Federico Berardi (YP135) - 31

His contract demands are way, way too expensive for us, so we might lose him in a couple years.

Manager's Player of the Year:

Fabio Della Valle (YP145)

For this year only, this is being renamed the 'Congratulations! You aren't Luca Stolfi!' award. We finally have a new starting keeper! He's not superb but he's got a bit of room to grow, and he's so, so much better than Stolfi ever was.

Aims for next season:

We probably won't be seeded again, but we desperately need to get the cash from making it back to the groups. Some of our players are on extortionate wages, and we'll be in financial trouble otherwise.

Other teams:

League Winners: :D

Cup Winners: :D

How the team in CL qualifying did: We lost to Dinamo in the Third Round.

How the teams in Europa qualifying did: We got 3 points in the group. Fiorentino lost 8-0 to PAOK, Faetano lost 7-0 to Slovakians Trnava but Folgore did us a favour, beating Laci from Albania 2-1. They lost 5-0 to Croatians Zadar in the Second Round.

San Marino National team:

2122 Results -- 2123 Results

That was a tough, tough Nations League Group.

As I believe that after a big mistake happened in the youth intakes, I wondered that when you see good intakes, you should have tagged 2.5* players, but in a bad intake, tagging a 2* potential player should take them below to the U19, so that would be safe in tagging youth prospects. Will you find a new HOYD, who has better coaching? Let's see who will be winners the Champions League and Europa League. And also, is BMG and Dnipro going ahead in the tournament while Dinamo going good in the Champions League, or maybe not?

Arsenal won the CL and Leverkusen won the EL. Dnipro lost 7-2 to Lyon and BMG lost 4-3 to Valencia in the First Knockout Round, and Dinamo lost every game in their group.

I'm absolutely fuming. 14k is too good to turn down for one of our best players? He's just absolutely screwed us.

We're absolutely screwed. Our chairman has decided that the best way to deal with our money issues is to sell our best players for peanuts. What a genius - let's get 10k for players now, and then not make the groups because we don't have them, costing us millions. ****. I think we're done for.

Screwed. That's our three best strikers behind Berardi who are gone. Our chairman is a f***ing idiot.

We were seeded by about 0.0001, and we should be beating Ferencvaros. Although, without so many of our players...

We're just so much weaker now. We absolutely need to win this, but 2-2 at home is a bad, bad result.

That's better. The problem is, Europa Groups aren't going to cut it. The money from that will probably keep us afloat (I'm not sure how much we'll save on wages from the guys our chairman sold), but it won't stop him selling everyone off again next time round. We really need to make the CL Groups - which would be a lot easier if he hadn't sold our f***ing players.

I've got no idea why Dinamo are seeded so low and Salzburg so high, but I think I want Cluj or Olympiakos. I think.

I couldn't think of a more perfect time to finally beat them in a qualifier, but I just don't think it's going to happen. They destroyed us last year when our team was much stronger.

I honestly have no idea what to expect. I think Spartak will be too strong for us, but I'm hopeful we can take at least 3 points off Vitesse.

Here's the honest truth: I think our chairman might have killed us.

We're so much weaker now than we were at the start of the year having lost two starters and two excellent young talents, and it's just the start. Michele Tini (YP132) wants to move to a bigger club, and he'll be gone in summer. Federico Berardi (YP135) and Federico Cervellini (YP130) are our two other star players, and their contracts are both too big for us to afford, so they'll be going the year after.

Our squad is going to have so little talent left, we'll be losing about 50 years progress. My motivation for this save has really been sapped by our chairman's idiocy, and unless we start getting dramatically better intakes, I think we're done for.

Youth Intake Day!

Remember, we've lost so many players that our stars are going to be a lot easier to get. A player with 2.5* PA last year would have a fair bit higher potential than someone with 2.5* PA this year.

He's tall and can tackle, I guess? He looks pretty poor, if I'm honest.

9a67604e2fb69c4e56e80768b0d3c188.png

It's a mystery to me why all our keepers have such bad one on ones.

This was a terrible intake, in my opinion. Sure, we got two 2.5* PA players, but the CB looks poor and we have a whole host of GKs who are 'meh'. We're desperate for CMs and we didn't get one, we need strikers who we didn't get, we need FBs who we didn't get, and we need wingers who we didn't get. Not good.

These players were playing for big names may cause San Giovanni losing their chances of advancing to the Champions League Group Stage.:( I would expect to see a new chairman in the next 5 years or later.

So, is Dinamo repeating the worse in the Champions League Group Stage? On the other hand, is Tottenham and Vitesse are simply great in the knockouts? After that, who took the trophy of this year's CL and EL?

Coppa Titano:

Table

Yay.

Squad

Key Players:



Highest Average Rating:

Claudio Muccioli (YP144) - 7.99

The fact that he's our best player shows how far we've fallen.

Top Goalscorer:

Federico Berardi (YP135) - 36

We're going to lose him in a year.

Manager's Player of the Year:

Diego Peralta (YP141)

He's a decent winger, I guess.

Aims for next season:

No idea.

Other teams:

League Winners: :D

Cup Winners: :D

How the team in CL qualifying did: We lost to Dinamo in the Playoff.

How the teams in Europa qualifying did: We got 3 points in the group. Libertas lost 3-2 to Bangor, Pennarossa lost 5-0 to Rangers and Folgore lost 4-2 to Shkendjia from Macedonia.

San Marino National team:

2123 Results -- 2124 Results

We were a win over Estonia away from making the Euros :(

There goes the best player in our history. Tini was unbelievably talented, and easily good enough to play in the Premiership if he'd wished. At 32, he's off to pursue that dream, but I fear it might be too late for him. I'm amazed we kept hold of him for so long, to be honest. He played 358 times for us, scored 19 times, got 3 assists, 4 MOTMs, an average rating of 7.21, and not only was the best defender we've ever had, but the best player in terms of talent. He'll be sorely missed.

Is Euro qualification still weirdly glitched to have teams with terrible results go through to the playoffs? It really bothers me in FM15.

I don't think so. Nations League group winners get a spot in the playoffs to have a chance to qualify for the Euros - we came second, but I'm presuming that our group winners qualified for the Euros through their Euro Qualification Group, so we took their spot in the playoffs instead.

This is probably my fault. I told them to aim for Luca Biordi sitting in the stands, and they took that message to heart. We might want to try scoring in the second leg, though.

Federico Berardi (YP135), you beautiful, beautiful man. I want to kiss you.

I didn't even bother to post the first leg result - we lost 2-0, and I didn't see us getting back into the game with the way we played in the first leg. That all changed in the second half at home - Berardi's movement was just too good for Olympiakos, and three close range finishes later, he's sent us into the CL Groups - and possibly saved our club. The money we get is going to be huge. If he does end up leaving at the end of the season, we couldn't have asked for a better parting gift.
