He's way too small to be a CB, but he might be a somewhat decent LB.

Poor mentals, but his technicals aren't bad and he's an absolute titan. Very happy with him.

We don't need strikers, but his blend of speed and size intrigues me.

Corbelli could be quite an asset at such low level of football with his physicality.

That's my line of thinking too. Hopefully he can improve slightly on his technicals to become a bit more rounded, because I could definitely see myself finding a use for him.

The youth intake looks fine because they are very good.:) So, I hope you made San Giovanni getting back to the higher ranks. This would make the Camponeato Sammarinese going back to the good hopes soon. Good game on your first European appearance against Lincoln (GIB) and Maribor.

Corbelli will continue a long line of illustrious San Marino strikers, trained in the fine art of "knock the bloody ball past and chase!!" and "hammer it" goal scoring. It will be exquisite :lol::brock:

Season Review

Campionato Sammarinese:

Table

Schedule

Our first unbeaten season - until we got to the final. We dominated Cailungo but couldn't break them down, and it's no Europe for us next year :(

Coppa Titano:

Table

Schedule

Pretty awful.

Squad

Key Players:



Highest Average Rating:

Davide Pasolini (YP13) - 7.79

He's not that good, so his place in the team is at risk.

Top Goalscorer:

Federico Colombini (YP9) - 27

Another good season from him.

Manager's Player of the Year:

Roberto Percassi (YP21)

He's pretty good.

Aims for next season:

We need to win the league back.

Other teams:

League Winners: Cailungo.

Cup Winners: La Florita beat Fiorentino 3-1 AET.

How the team in CL qualifying did: We made history, becoming the first team from San Marino to win a European Qualifying game.

How the teams in Europa qualifying did: Juvenes Dogana lost 5-0 to Levadia from Estonia.

San Marino National team:

2023 Results -- 2024 Results

That's a superb draw with Scotland.

That's some serious improvement! The league goes up nearly 100 spaces, we're the most improved in Europe, we've gone from one Europa spot to three and our TV money has multiplied by 5! (From 1k to 5k but still).

Corbelli looks quite good due to nice physical stats.

Congratulations on the huge huge improvements of the league reputation.

I must say I just came over your story now, and finished it without getting up from chair. Hope you will continue this till FM17 comes out.

That one's a bit more annoying. He was pretty good, but couldn't get in the first team because Simone Ceccoli (YP19) was even better. Annoyed with the lack of games, he refused to resign and has left on a free to La Florita.

He's not great anywhere, but that's a really well rounded CM.

17a97f998d75a8fa97edab2782cdb312.png

We like our giants, don't we? He doesn't actually look that good, but I have room for as many 6'6 CBs as the game wants to give me.

I'm going to predict a 5-2 win on aggregate :)

Turns out we're even better than you thought!

Delighted with that. I thought we might struggle, so 6-0 is really pleasing.

I'm delighted with that. We didn't look inferior, held them to a draw at home, and only lost 3-1 on aggregate. We might not be too far away from winning a game in the second round...

It turns out that you made a surprise shocking return in the Euro competitions.:D So, another word is that this new chairman is going to make you happy for the first time.:)

So far:

1.) Who won the Champions League and Europa League from the start?

2.) Who has the most number of Camponeato Sammarinese and Copa Titano San Marino trophies?

3.) What Maribor and Slovan Bratislava ended up in the last two competitions?

Good luck with your new chairman!:)

Woooo! He looks superb, and fully deserves that 5* CA. I'm excited about him. Unfortunately we already had a good LM, but Bollini is nowhere near as good as Maiani, so he's lost his place :lol:

3289f329231cbe7a80486f200bc0b5f7.png

He looks decent, but he's a long way down the LM pecking order.

7d1e8d5a2814ac7ab79696a457221bb6.png

I like his pace, but not that much else.

406c92d717647c88c1e22e3edf72d23a.png

Again, he's a long way down the list of strikers we have, but he looks pretty decent.

bbe264485868042dea95e1175c518fe0.png

14 passing is superb, although I'm not sure he'll get much gametime to begin with.

I would be happy with such an inceridible intake at almost every high rep european club lol.. Not just this one you had recently but almost every one you had in this save yet.

They're going pretty well but remember that PA is relative, so 5* PA for us doesn't actually mean that much. I doubt that a single one of our players so far would be able to ever make it at a half decent team elsewhere. On the old save, we had players a lot better than these go to average clubs in leagues not much better (like the Austrian league) and completely flop.

I'm not as excited as I should be - like Makoto, we can't actually offer anyone a part time contract. That must be a change made in the latest patch, but I have no idea why. We're not spending any money on upgrades until we can turn Pro, because I don't want any future wonderkid being stolen away to Austria.

Unbelievable! I'm shocked to see Morocco winning because that's getting bigger than the other big European nations.:eek:

1.) Congratulations on being semi-pro!:) Did other Sammarinese teams are semi-pro as well?

2.) What is their finish for Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League?

3.) Is Luxembourg or any other small European nations made it to the UEFA Euro or FIFA World Cup for the first time?

Juvenes Dogana, Domagnano, Tre Fiori, Cailungo and La Florita are all also Semi-Pro.

Red Star lost in the Playoff 1-0 to Red Bull Salzburg and went into the Europa groups, getting 4 points and coming third.

Syria, El Salvador, Zambia and Honduras have qualified for one WC each (except for El Salvador who made two), but they've all come bottom each time.

Albania, Cyprus and Montenegro have made the Euros. Montenegro actually got out their group, but were knocked out in the Second Round by Norway on penalties.

Well, I was wrong about Rossini being a star. He never really developed, and just got phased out the team by better players, leaving to go and get first team football.

He's pretty much on the same level as our current keeper, so I'm not sure if I'll actually start him. 6 positioning isn't great.

575f4716c1d92d44b85ecbc26b79ca36.png

I really don't see how he's 4* for us. He looks decent, but nothing special.

Season Review

Campionato Sammarinese:

Table

This was so nervy. We dominated the final but went 2-1 down to a FK, and it took us until the 70th minute to level the scores. We got the job done in extra time, but it was too close for comfort.

Coppa Titano:

Table

Schedule

Now we have our first cup win, I'm back to not caring about this.

Squad

Key Players:



Highest Average Rating:

Roberto Percassi (YP21) - 7.81

I feel like I should disqualify CMs from this.

Top Goalscorer:

Marco Quaranta (YP23) - 27

The big man got some goals!

Manager's Player of the Year:

Federico Maiani (YP35)

I'm scared he's going to end up in Austria soon.

Aims for next season:

Retain the league.

Other teams:

League Winners: :D

Cup Winners: :D Our first double!

How the team in CL qualifying did: We lost to Red Star Belgrade in the Second Round.

How the teams in Europa qualifying did: Juvenes Dogana lost 5-0 to Kukesi from Albania, Tre Penne lost 7-0 to Inverness CT and Domagnano lost 5-0 to Irony Kiryat-Shmona (what a name!) from Israel.

San Marino National team:

The FM gods are smiling on us.

Aktobe are from Kazakhstan and they're seeded, but I don't know how they're seeded. Their coefficient is 6.625, which seems pretty low to me. Although, looking at it, they have made the Third Round every year they've been in it, so fair play.

Regardless, they're the weakest team we've played in the Second Round yet, and they're the weakest team we'll play for quite a while. They'll likely be stronger than us, but this is a golden chance to try and cause an upset, make it through to the Third Round and improve our finances, coefficient, club reputation and league reputation significantly.

No pressure.
