SanGiovanni.jpg

History:

*Taken from what I think is the San Marino football site and is loosely translated from Italian*

In the early years after World War II the parish priest of St. John Sotto Le Penne, a hamlet of Borgo Maggiore, collects the boys of the country, considered to be the 10th of the Republic Castle.

Behind the church there is an uneven pitch, the pastor makes it available on the condition of these guys who are committed to make it fit for use. In the evening, instead of being at the bar all to the field to work in the light of a makeshift bulb. Meanwhile Don Fedele takes care to find the shirts, the first will be red-black, and since then have remained unchanged through the colors. In 1948, St. John was founded and with the early '50s, such as Libertas, boasts its own pitch built by the founders behind the church, a special feature is the self-sufficient management of the players, the San Giovanni is born with all players originating homonymous hamlet of Borgo Maggiore. The player who most remember is John the Baptist War, then he became President of the SAA.

The coat of arms combines as few social tradition to the imagination. Divided into 2 distinct parts, at the top are well in sight of the "Three Feathers" calling the St. John under the pen (the three peaks of Monte Titano), precisely; on the underside appears a puma standing guard at a ball. Coat of arms, too, the result of work and imagination of the founding members.

In the second half of the '50s is a business interruption it occurs that will only last a couple of seasons in fact in 1957 the St. John makes his return to the field for him no matter.

This Season's standings:

San Giovanni finished dead last with 1 win, 3 draws and 17 defeats! My aim, at least to start off is to do better than that.


In FM16:

..I don't know what the A-2 League is.

A rivalry with Pennarossa, completely minimal facilities and we haven't finished higher than 8th in over 20 years.



Old habits die hard. San Marino is my habit and I'm still yet to come close to conquering it but now I'm on FM16, I have a more immersive player database as well as Italy loaded down to Serie C (Thanks Jamie!) Let's finally get this started shall we?

Looking forward to this alongside Jupjamies. I will take this bit out with an edit once you change it but looking at their points total in the league table mate I would say it's 17 losses and not 17 draws. I doubt you would finish last with just 3 losses.

The Starting Squad:



8e6eabe174e8364ea35439955abe3c12.png

This is what I'm welcomed with, 4 (perhaps 5) good players and 13 players aged 31 or over, one of those is our chairman who still thinks he can play despite being 44.

92d97ec62c4a853c6fc1f021f43873c9.png

He may be fit to play...but not fit for purpose.


Key Players:

I'm excited by Riccardo with him being just 18, in fact he could probably form a very good partnership with Gabriele.


Youth Team:

Yes, we have a youth team!

Oh. Well, at least they have potential, they shall be (YP0a) and (YP0b)

How on earth did I not notice that? Thanks Lewis!

Did you have to promise him that you would play him in the next 5 games?



He actually has played in 5 games this season although 3 of which he came on as a sub, the 6.55 average rating does however mean that he's the 3rd worst performing player this season.

It's the technique of 1 and concentration of 3 that alarms me haha!

Youth Intake Day!

A 5* CA/ 5* PA Goalkeeper in the 1st intake! The downside is that he is purely Italian, not even a hint of being Sammarinese :(

EDIT: YP1f scored a hat-trick in the U19's vs Youth Candidates game so I feel like I should show him off as well.

Schedule

Made it all the way to the final..but got thrashed by the team that finished dead last in our league group.

Edoardo Cecchetti - 7.12

Just 22 years old so he won't be retiring for a while! 7 goals and 9 assists despite a finishing of 1.

Top Goalscorer:
Andrea Renzi - 14

More than a goal every other game from the 32 year old who will probably be retiring soon.

Young Player of the Year:
Riccardo Bettini

The young defender had the 3rd highest average rating this season and helped out with getting 6 assists.

Aims for next season:

With a squad average age of 29 we're probably going to have a lot of players retire so I want the youngsters to fill the gaps as best as they can.

Cup Winners: Virtus

How the team in CL qualifying did: Folgore/Falciano lost to Welsh side TNS 3-1 in the 1st Qualifying Round.

Omar is still definitely going to be the first choice for the foreseeable future :D

I don't blame you. How many years does it take to be a San Marinese national? That's obviously unless he becomes a full Italian international or he gets taken off you.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think in real life it may be 30 years?

You never know, I could see you upsetting Shirak. Unbelievable work to win the league so quickly!



I couldn't believe it! 34 points is the lowest amount of points needed to top the groups so far and I'm amazed that we held on in the playoffs.

Gotta love a league where you can beat the same team in both the Semi Final and the Final!

Hard lines in Champions League...just keep thinking of D:Ream and know things can only get better.

They were hard times but I was expecting it to be fair, I don't think we'll be getting past the 1st qualifying round for quite some time yet and okay I will do ;)

I don't understand how Massimiliano is rated so much better than everyone else, Ivano is a monster at 6'5 and a finishing of 13! And in my opinion Nicola looks the best all-round but with not as much potential.

Am I the only person who loves the Chairman for still wanting to play?

"I've got 1 good year left in me!".

No. No you haven't.

Imagine having to tell that to someone as much of a lunatic as Maurizio Zamparini :lol:

He must have felt the same with being a chairman as 1 year after retiring from playing he was no longer the Chairman either! :D

I'm not sure how, it's not in any of the training things.

It is but your training facilities won't be very good so you are limited in what you can train. For example at Lille I can train everything due to my facilities.

I'm an idiot fairplay, I only looked under technical even though it's clearly under physical *facepalm*
