It's still not looking good with just the one league win, we did absolutely destroy the team from Reunion in the Coupe de France which was nice to see and my job status is still secure somehow.

Our form is picking up :D 2 league wins, 4 clean sheets and we're through to the Quarter Final of the Coupe de la Ligue where we face AS Monaco at home and through to the 9th Round of the Coupe de France where we face AJ Auxerre away from home.

If it wasn't for our upturn in form I would have left since this is becoming really tough to deal with.

This is hopeful though!

Absolutely perfect league form sees us climb to 11th but it's really close with just 7 points separating 6th and 15th! We also came so so close to reaching the Coupe de la Ligue Semi-Final! We were 2-0 up until the 82nd minute where Monaco made it 2-1 and we then scored an own goal in the 89th minute, heartbreaking!

Another perfect month! I'm so glad I didn't resign earlier in the season! Some bigger players have gone so we're also now under our wage budget, these are good times :D

 

 

We also scored a cracker with this counter-attack :D

And then when things are going so well there comes the phase of absolutely everything screwing you over as we draw the 2 away games and lose 2 of the 3 home games, bye bye momentum!

Both of our strikers are completely ruled out now for the last 2 league games.

Mission accomplished, the board wanted top half and I exceeded those expectations so I can leave the club on a high note, yes I'm leaving Dijon  and you may be asking why? Well my contract is up and I was waiting to see on next seasons budgets before making up my mind and I've decided that £169K transfer budget and £62,000 wage budget is not enough for improvement that's needed and we have players not willing to sign new contracts in an already bare squad.

Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie is a Dutch football club from the city of Nijmegen that currently plays in the Eredivisie.

The oldest remnants of the club, "Eendracht" (Dutch for unity), stem back to 15 November 1900. In 1910, Eendracht merged with Nijmegen to form the Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie. The team's home ground is the 12,500-seatStadion de Goffert.

The club has not won any major tournaments to date, though they were runners-up in the KNVB Cup competition in 1973, 1983, 1994, and 2000; they played in the UEFA Cup tournaments in 1983, 2003, and 2008.

A very mid-table team with good facilities and they want me to bring in young players so here goes, I'm not going to sign anyone over the age of 21 unless it's a free transfer. This should be fun and I'm looking forward to a long stint in the Eredivise which is now ranked the 15th best league in Europe (although this may change when it updates in 2-3 weeks in-game time.)

How the heck are Skonto so dominant? I always remember Ventspils as being the best Latvian team out there. And winning the league by 35 points is silly. Not even Celtic have managed to win all 13. I can understand BATE and Vardar because they're usually the best, but can you check on Skonto to see what's happening? Have they ever made the Champions League groups any of those 13 times? It's the little things that make me the most excited when reading saves.

Anyways, good luck with NEC. Hopefully the budget is a little more permissive! :)

Skonto are one of the very few teams I really want to manage because of this :D 

Here's their continental history:

As well as my favourite season of theirs:

They were the only team with a positive goal difference :D

Interesting bit about Skonto, I've always liked them (even though I've never watched them play) just because I remember they nearly beat Barcelona once in the Champions League like 20 years ago. :D

Good luck in Holland after a good job with Dijon, you're clearly rising up in status with every job now.

I think I'm going to have to keep an eye out for when the Skonto job finally becomes available, may be a nice little challenge to get them to European Group Stages :D

Thanks, hopefully I can take this step-up well and build something in Holland.

Pre-Season 2028/29

The board expect top half and the media expect 6th, I'd rather aim for what the board wants. And no our transfer budget wasn't really £30 since we currently have a £526K transfer budget after all the signings.

d1cc374079ac428007dd51fc50d4883c.png

A good pre-season but the only disappointment was against a club which I would say is around our level, maybe a little bit better than us.

Didn't they then get banned since the result was due to one team disagreeing with the ref in a previous game or something like that?

A very good start to the season winning the 3 away games but sadly just getting 1 point in the 2 home games but it does see us up in 3rd after 5 games which I'm very pleased with.

Another good month where we came from 2 goals down to draw with Ajax and again in the cup against MVV Maastricht who were 2-0 up after just 3 minutes but we fought back to win on penalties and we're still holding on to 3rd in the league.

Another unbeaten month which is all the more impressive due to the fact that all of our games were away from home, this leaves us a solitary point at the top of the table. The weird happened in the cup where Leroy converted 4 penalties...in 54 minutes.

A great month in the league with us scoring 7 and not conceding a single goal! This puts us joint top with Feyenoord which is a lot better than I thought we'd be doing! The only disappointment was the fact that we exited the KNVB Beker in the 4th round.

A great finish to the season with the easy win against Go Ahead Eagles securing 4th and a place in the Europa League Playoffs with us performing nervously with the home tie against PSV but blowing them away in their back yard with a comprehensive 3-0 win and then we did even better against ADO Den Haag winning 7-4 on aggregate which enters us into next seasons Europa League qualifying! :D

Amazing save, @Makoto Nakamura.

I have tried the same thing as you, in other forum in Brazil. It's from FM15, and following the old European Competitions (European League Cup, Cup Winners and Europe Cup).

It's claimed 'Desafio: Europa'. I send the link in PM.

Very good save, and congratulations.

Cheers!

A very good month with good performances throughout, even in the defeat to PSV, we're 4th in the league with a game in hand and we thrashed non-league Harkemase Boys 9-0 in the cup and also, albeit more unexpectedly thrashed Hajduk Split 5-1 away from home!

A completely perfect month with 6 wins from 6, I did say I wouldn't know what to expect in the Europa League but I certainly didn't foresee us scoring 15 goals in just 3 games! And in the league Feyenoord are looking unstoppable conceding just 3 goals in 11 games and in the cup we face ADO Den Haag in the 4th Round, they knocked us out in the 4th Round last season.

A bit worse during November as we face a couple of the top 5 in Eindhoven and Utrecht which sees us 6 points behind Feyenoord as they begin to slip up as well. 2 more Europa League games and we qualify in 1st easily with a goal difference of 17 with a game still to play!

I'm going to stick my NEC out and predict you'll win a trophy this season.

Go Ahead and say it, I hope you're right.

The title race is really hotting up now, we have a game in hand and if we win that then we go top on goal difference I think. In Europe we draw the group stage to a disappointing conclusion with us drawing away at Celta de Vigo and in the KNVB Beker we got past ADO Den Haag and face FC Eindhoven in the Quarter Final, and who do we face in the Europa League? Well, here's who everyone faces in the Europa League.
