If at first you don't succeed, blame the game and try again - A San Marino Youth Challenge 2.0

Superb. Our reputation and coefficient should go up a fair amount next season.

Hmm. They're the weakest team we could have been drawn against. They still almost always make the Playoff and have a squad way, way stronger than ours, but maybe...

That's so frustrating. Our best two players are now both goalkeepers (We have a 5* one, now a 4.5* one, and I believe a 4* and a 3.5* one...). He looks pretty good, but he'll probably never play.

Good physicals, but he's really lacking in technicals and mentals.

Essentially the opposite - he has good technicals and some decent mentals, but his physicals are somewhat lacking. He's only 16, though, so they should grow,

These youth intakes are still better than the beginning. Although, I will probably wait to see those goalkeepers to be strong, but Di Gregorio may shift teams to Malta or Luxembourg in the transfer window.

1.) How's BATE, Maribor, Ludogorets and Villareal finish in the tournaments?

2.) When is the time that penalty shootout occur in competitions?

3.) In the next transfer window, is Di Gregorio will play in Malta, Luxembourg or to an amateur team like Fiorentino?

If that continues, it could be that your HoYD is an ex GK, (they seem to have a preference for positions even if they aren't ex players), and while a GK can be good if you are looking for one, it's not something that you want in a long-term save like this.

I must admit, it's only happened to me once, (GK's coming through), and I binned him and get a new HoYD and the problem was sorted.

More commonly I have a HoYD who keeps banging out attacking players, or another that bangs out defensive players, but it's actually often hard to get the balance correct.

Bate lost to Dinamo in the Playoff and got 0 points in their Europa group. Maribor lost to Basel in the Third Round and lost to AEK in the Europa Playoff. Ludogorets really surprised me - they beat Celtic 4-1! in the CL Playoff, but lost every group game.

Are you asking when penalties happen? They happen when the teams are tied after extra time (so when it's a draw after 90 minutes, and when that doesn't change in 30 minutes of extra time).

How am I supposed to know before it happens? I'm not going to sell him to anyone, and now we're a Pro team he's under a youth contract for a few years, so for now he's not going anywhere, but he might in the future.

Interesting point, and one I hadn't thought of. He's not an ex player, but his preferred formation is 5-4-1, which suggests to me he's a defensive minded coach and might be producing more goalkeepers? It's a bit of a reach, but it makes sense to me (I think). I'll take a look for a new HOYD, which considering we're now Pro is worth doing anyway.

I've just looked, and there's no-one as good as our current one. For now, at least, we'll have to stick with him, although another spell of goalkeepers and he'll get the boot.

Because FM is really weird :lol: I was confused too, but for some reason Poor is better than Basic for Youth, but Basic is better than Poor for Training. It's really strange.

That's a superb result and performance against a much stronger team. Can we nick a goal at home and stun the world? (Or the very few people in the world who care about the Champions League Second Qualifying Round, at least).

He looks decent although we don't need a LB, so I'll be retraining him to RB.

Another sort of ok striker that we don't need. Disappointed with this intake, in truth.

We're not seeded, but this is the easiest draw we could have got by a long shot. They sometimes make the Third Round but often go out in the Second - they're better than us, but not by much.

Going better than it is expected. What a new rivalry to see this for the future.

1.) Goodbye GNK Dinamo, and hello Legia! Is GNK Dinamo doing well or on the decline?

2.) When Legia and Wolfsburg ended up in the Champions League and Europa League? Remember that Legia has appeared twice against San Giovanni (Europa League and Champions League).

3.) The San Marino NT was on the rock bottom because of no goals:(. Who are the head coaches in San Marino NT from the start to current?

Dinamo are doing great. We'll meet them soon enough, I'm sure.

Last year, Legia lost their CL Playoff to Red Bull Salzburg and came bottom of their EL group. This year they lost in their CL Playoff to FC Midtjylland but came second in their EL group, losing in the First Knockout Round to Sporting Lisbon. Wolfsburg got knocked out by Valencia in the Second Knockout Round.

The NT managers have been Pierangelo Manzaroli (who has the job in real life), Thomas Pelliccioni (who has now retired and can't be accessed) and the current one, Michele Protti.

Very nice youth intake by the way, the 3 you've tagged look decent. Unlucky vs Celtic as well, but to be expected. They are still a very strong side.

It's tempting, but I wouldn't want to risk the momentum I've got going at the moment and I'm still progressing quickly with IR, though i've been hit with a curveball recently by losing my best player :(

I'm "Team IR" as well. Gives me a chance to catch and address some of the small things that pop up. When extending contracts becomes touch and go, I like having those incremental dominoes falling my way.

Although I do end up a little jealous at the speed "Team Holiday" flies through seasons :D.
