Greek Youth Adventure - Season 5

htMf2.png

So, our first season in Europe was a blast. We had a pretty difficult group on our hands but we showed a lot of consistency in the Europa League. I mean if 6 straight loses and 3-24 goals isn't consistency than I don't know the meaning of that English word. I also think we had the thrashing of the season in Europe, but we didn't expected much from the European cups anyway. Unfortunately we weren't able to repeat our performance in the Greek Cup as we lost in the QF in front of eventual winners Olympiakos. By now you will be wondering how we did in the Superleague. Finished in 4th, our best position so far, and qualified for the European places playoffs, where we managed to scrap a 3th position which allows us to enter the qualifying stages next season (though with our bad coefficient we need some luck in the draw to qualify again to the groups). 

The Squad performed pretty good in this season, as we only have 4 players in the first 11 which are not products of our youth academy. Season Awards go to Micheel (highest average rating), Zonas 19b (top goalscorer and man of the match), Ntoupis 17a (most assists),  Tzanakis 18a (young player of the season) with a honorable mentions to Mara 18d (a rock in the back this season). Decent Youth Intake for the season, but have to start thinking about playing the youths in the reserves or loaning them out as not all of them can get into the first team anymore. I am still signing all of them to contracts on long term, just to see how they develop in the long term, seeing we can afford to do that. Some Transfers out this season, including our first sale of youth product, for the fortune of 11k. 

European campaign made our Finances look pretty good, with prize money of over 3.5 million we actually managed to make a profit of 1.5 million, that should make the board pretty happy. And they show their gratitude by upgrading the youth facilities at the club - and again upgrading (still don't know if a bug or something else). 

The cherry on top of the season? Being named Manager of the Year. Next season objectives - consolidate our position as an European Club.

Congrats on another strong season @Muttley84

Thanks, although not entirely my credit there. Feel like this one of the perfect countries for this challenge: decent money and average facilities to start with, not that huge difference going up the leagues, good regens. I can see England being 10X tougher and hope you will hang in there and slowly climb up:)

My Brexit means the end of the bosman rule, should add an interesting wrinkle to this save. Screen Shot 2016-11-14 at 00.44.04.png

I think this is the worst possible brexit so far in terms of changes.

 

But coming to think about it, great brexit for youth challenge managers - even the guys who don't want to renew their contract bring in money when they leave

I was thinking about restarting this challenge, because of some issues on the Greek Leagues. One question though. Why are added leagues banned from this thread? I was thinking about playing in San Marino, after their incredible response to Thomas Muller's comments about their level.

Hendon FC ~ 2017/18 Season

League Table ~ Transfers ~ Finances ~ Squad ~ Facilities

Gino Padula's first season as Hendon boss ended with an 18th placed finish and survival. We had a difficult start, exacerbated by an injury crisis up front. Star striker Tom Ashton tore his groin in pre-season keeping him out until early October, second choice Karl Oliyide was perennially picking up small knocks in the early part of the season, necessitating the use of veteran journeyman Kezie Ibe. Ibe started the season well, scoring a brace in the second game of the season to get us our first points but then did his ACL in the following match forcing him into early retirement. With all 3 senior strikers injured, I was forced to use Hendon stalwart Casey Maclaren (primarily a holding midfielder) in a false 9 role, with mixed results. The return of Ashton saw a fleeting improvement, but most of the season was spent between 14th and 19th, scrapping for occasional victories but generally being outscored by the division's superior sides. Defensive vulnerabilities really told, and with Luke Tingey, our best centreback, the Buckinghamshire Cannavaro, being just 5"8, we seemed to concede a lot from set plays. The 5-0 away win over eventual play off semi-finalists Dartford was a rare highlight in an otherwise bleak season.

A loss in the 3rd qualifying round of the FA Cup to a 10 men St Albans side was very frustrating, but defeat in the FA trophy first round to National League Premier side Aldershot was far more palatable. The lack of a cup run has seen our finances drop into "insecure", at around £105k in the red. This has put an end to any hope of improving our meagre facilities. Here's hoping a generous rich oligarch comes along and fancies investing in the youf.

Aims for the next season

Top Performers

Tom Ashton - Wonderful season from him. 20 goals, in such a poor team, and after missing the first 9 games of the season is remarkable. It is almost solely down to him that I still harbour some, probably misplaced, hopes of a play-off push next season. His one on one finishing at this level is deadly, but he also scored 2 or 3 goal of the season contenders from long range.

Andre De Costa - When Ashton was injured at the start of the season, a lot of the responsibility fell on De Costa to get the goals. He got 4 in the opening 2 months, and was an important source of assists and goals throughout the season.

Christian Toonga - Started every league game, barely missed a minute and reached 10 assists for the season at the age of 20. Has the potential to play at a higher level, and hopefully can continue his form next season

Youth Intake

Not good. Perhaps too much to ask to get anyone immediately capable of playing at this level, but the lack of anyone in the 4/5 star potential bracket is really disappointing.

Michael Kelly is rated as the best prospect in the intake, and will be given game time in the FA Trophy and early FA Cup games to test himself.

Dan Atkinson has solid physicals, and I like his teamwork and workrate. It was a big mistake to give him his debut at centreback in the final game of the season, he was torn apart by a strikerofrce including a 39 year old Kevin Lisbie, but is an able understudy to senior LB Tom Bird.

Chris Willis is an excellent set piece taker at this level, something that my side is otherwise sorely lacking. Made regular cameos in the last month or so of the season

Season 14

 

Dafabet Welsh Premier League

9 in a row. Lost a game after 61 games unbeaten, which was disappointing. It was the last dominant team of Wales that stopped our streak, TNS.

Cup runs

Won both cups. Had a Club record 13-0 tie against Gresford were Davies 10D scored 7 goals. Great for his quest to 1000.

Champions League

We were pretty satisfied With a Draw that saw us take on CSKA Moscow, Anderlecht and Real Madrid. We felt like we could pick up our first CL-Points, but after 5 games we had been unable to do so. We didnt concede more than 3 goals in any game, which was a massive improvement from the last time we tried our hand at the CL. In the last game wee welcomed Anderlecht to Wales, the "easiest" game of the tournament. And we were able to secure a 1-1 Draw and claim our first CL-point. The -11 goal difference matches the goal difference from 1 of our games last time in CL, when we lost 12-1 at Old Trafford. So we're going in the right direction

 

 

Youth Setup:

Youth Intake

Peter James 14A | Dave Owen 14B

Decent intake. No 5-star prospects, but a nice central defender and a goalie With free kick rating of 9. He is now my first Choice goalkeeper in the League, as I am trying to incorporate the Big Fat Goalie Challenge. My best goalkeeper will still play the CL matches, as I can't afford to mess around there.

 

Big Fat Goalie Challenge:

Started the season With Richie Price 11D as my League goalie, as he had higher penalty and free kick rating than my best goalie Griffiths 7B. Price 11D scored 4 goals this season, the first one a beautiful long range free-kick. When Owen 14B came through the youth intake, he was instated as the fat goalie. He missed 2 of his first 3 penalties and didn't score any free-kicks. Hopefully I can improve his penalty rating.

Richie Price 11D - 4 Goals

Dave Owen 14B - 1 Goal

Longevity Challenge:

The aim in this Challenge is to get players to 1000 appearances for the club. We're currently playing just over 50 games a season, so it will require an incredibly injury-free player 20 Seasons to do it.

Most appearances:

Emyr Boyle 2D - 441 Appearances

Huw Price 4A - 381 Appearances

Ones to watch:

Callum Hart 12A - 66 Appearances

Rory Cooper 12B - 51 Appearances

 

Danny Roberts Challenge

The aim in this Challenge is to get a player to score 1000 goals during his career, national team goals count.

Most goals:

Huw Price 4A - 287 goals in 381 games. 45 goals this season

Jacob Davies 10D - 90 goals in 81 games. 55 goals this season despite being injured for 2 months.

Jacob Davies 10D might just be able to do this, unfortunatly it is unlikely that he will rack up a lot of international goals as he probably won't become an international starter. He is however called up regularly, but has yet to make his debut.

Once again another tough season but a good set of results towards the end of the season meant we didn't finish bottom, still going to be tough to move up the table without a good youth intake.

@Vevi Sure, here you go! Seems most attributes have changed. I think I had put all my points into working With youngsters when I started out, and it was at 4 back then too. Dicipline and adaptability are also unchanged I think. Maybe dicipline has gone up by one

Étoile Football Club Fréjus Saint-Raphaël

SEASON 1 - 2017/18

Starting Profile - Transfers (two completed before I joined the club)

Championnat National - 13th 

We were only 4 points clear from the relegation zone but I feel we were quite comfortable in reality. I tried using youngsters in the last few games which we ended up losing :p. The league was quite tight really and I was only 8 points from 6th.

French Cup - 9th Round

Not much to say here. Met the board's expectations, lost when we first came up against good opposition. Maybe we could put a run together next year.

--

Youth Intake:

Jean-Luc Santini (18a) - looks like he has really good potential considering our level and should develop nicely into a great striker for us, which is important as we don't have great depth there. Have already received bids from a number of Ligue 2 sides for him.

Noureddine Yousfi (18b) - I love managing in France because the players have brilliant names. Noureddine will be useful as we have poor depth at CB and he could help one day.

--

Key Players:

Akim Orinel - the heartbeat of our team at AMC. Chipped in with 11 assists and 3 important goals in all appearances. Will need to get a decent AMC in an intake as he's getting on a bit now

Belony Dumas - was amazing at the back for us and made it into the Team of the Season. He even scored a hattrick one match, no idea how to be honest

--

Next season's aims:

  1.  Push for a midtable finish
  2.  Get past 9th Round in the cup
  3.  Give playing time to the youth prospects, especially Santini

Yeah if this was a non youth save I'd be annoyed with this but in this type of save I think it adds to it.

Am loving the challenge so far but I've got so much work on this week it's going to be Friday or Saturday before I can really get back playing :(

@darren1983    IMO you should simulate with this Brexit rules next 30-35 years and then all we can check what will happen with ENG Premier League and English Clubs in the near future :)  .

I know it will be only simulation but I think many people wait for the save of the game like this :)

Ofc before you start - you should add Serie A, Bundesliga, Primera D., Ligue 1, Liga NOS and Eredivisie...

 

Anyway GL with career :applause:

Grenoble-Foot 38 

Pre-season 2017

Starting Profile - Squad - Transfers (2 made before joining)- Facilities

I will be starting the Youth Challenge in France with GF 38. A team who went into administration in 2011 and were relegated to the 5th tier of French football. They have had some notable players over the years, including Youri Djorkaeff and Olivier Giroud. 

We begin as a semi-proffesional side, but hopefully we can rectify that soon in order to get more training time for our players. Facilities-wise, the average training facilities should be really helpful for developing some of our youngsters. Everything else could do with some improving if we can make enough money. 

The squad looks pretty promising to start out with, we have two solid goalkeepers which is a big relief. In defence we have a lot of solid DCs, but not a lot of options at DR and DL. Moving on to the midfield, we are again strong through the centre with weaknesses out wide. Finally, upfront we have two very good strikers in Florian David and Nicolas Belvito. David is attracting interest from abroad, and I may end up having to sell him if I get a big enough offer.

Given our strengths, I've decided to use 5-3-2 (WB) as our primary tactic, with a Narrow 4-3-1-2 as an alternative. This is the first time in as long as I can remember I will be using WBs in Football Manager (been playing since CM3), I like to use a flat back four but getting the best players on the pitch seems crucial in this challenge. It may take me a while to get this tactic working well, so hopefully we will be able to make up for what I'm expecting will be a slow start. 

Notable Youths

We have one youth player from last years intake who I have deemed promising enough to the tag, I will sign the whole class to ensure I have some depth in the squad over the next couple of years and there may be a couple who stick around as back-ups if they continue to improve. 

Mathias Horjak (YP17A) - Horjak is a very promising central midfielder. With his good work rate and stamina, I'm looking to turn him into a Box-to-Box midfielder. Unfortunately league rules don't allow under 16 year olds to play first team football, but I will start giving him game time asap in January.

Board Expectations

  • Championnat National - Top Half Finish - Bit of an imposing goal here for our first season in the division, although it is only a 18 team league with 4 teams relegated. Judging on last season this would need us to get around the 45 point mark, which isn't impossible. Hopefully, failure to meet this goal won't result in my sacking as I could see us finishing slightly lower than this. 
  • French Cup - Ninth Round - We start in the Fifth Round so this may be another challenge depending on the draw. I'm not familiar with coaching in France, so I'm not sure how likely it is we will have to face clubs from our tier and above. If we can get away with only lower league sides this should be manageable.

Season 15

League Table | Transfers | Season Review

Dafabet Welsh Premier League

10 in a row. 89 Points, but somehow lost a game 3-0 against Barry.

Cup runs

Won both. Time to order a new trophy cabinet, it's getting crowded.

Champions League

A much harder Group this time around, Paris St. Germain, Arsenal and Sporting. After losing the first 5 matches Arsenal made the short trip to Wales, needing a win to advance to the next round. We played magnificently, by far our best European effort (bar the magic nights against København). Arsenal couldn't muster a single shot at target, and 2 minutes into extra time the entire population of Wales exploded when Kevin Smith 4D smashed the ball into the top corner. For the first time we have beaten a true giant of world football, and to do it in a game that Arsenal had to win makes the accomplishment that much greater. Paris St. Germain on their part is totally dominating the world, winning the CL a laughable 9 times out of the last 12 years.

 

Youth Setup:

Youth Intake

Matthew Boyle 15A

Decent intake. No 5-star prospects, Boyle 15A might become a great midfielder if he develops. Still no promising full backs which we really need. Our U-19 team Advanced from their Champions League Group, and was eventually beatenon penalties by Bayern in the 2nd knock-out round.

 

Big Fat Goalie Challenge:

Owen 14B had a great season from the spot, scoring on all his 8 penalties this year. Was a bit disappointed that he couldn't score any free kicks, but 8 goals is a great start for him, especially seeing as he missed 2 of his 3 penalties last year.

Dave Owen 14B - 9 Goals. 8 this season.

Richie Price 11D - 4 Goals

Longevity Challenge:

The aim in this Challenge is to get players to 1000 appearances for the club. We're currently playing just over 50 games a season, so it will require an incredibly injury-free player 20 Seasons to do it.

Most appearances:

Emyr Boyle 2D - 470 Appearances

Huw Price 4A - 419 Appearances

Ones to watch:

Callum Hart 12A - 101 Appearances

Rory Cooper 12B - 100 Appearances

 

Danny Roberts Challenge

The aim in this Challenge is to get a player to score 1000 goals during his career, national team goals count.

Most goals:

Huw Price 4A - 309 goals in 419 games. A long term injury unfortunatly hampered his season this time around, resulting in only 22 goals being scored.

Jacob Davies 10D - 141 goals in 125 games. 51 goals this season despite 3 minor injuries keeping him out of action for about 2 months.

Jacob Davies 10D has yet to debut for Wales, but is a mainstay in the national squad. Several teams from the lower end of  the Premier League have bid for him, but he is contracted to us for 4 more years, and we won't be letting him go. He will just be rotting on the bench there anyway, as our last super striker Tom Coates 6A currently is at Blackburn.

Hapoel Herzliya

End of Season 1 (2017/18)

Liga Leumit (Israeli 2nd tier)

150px-Hapoel_herzlya.gif

My Profile - League Table - Club Facilities - Finances - Transfers

 

The Season - Our pre-season saw us get trounced 5-0 by a lower level club, and mostly playing aweful. Our first competitive matches were played in the Toto Cup (the secondary cup of Israel. there's a separate Toto Cup for the 1st tier and a different one for the 2nd tier) - and they where no better. We were beaten easily, only producing 2 shots on goal. Obviously, we where handed an early exit, finishing bottom of our group of 4 teams with one point.

The League was a different story. Our failures in the pre-season led me to adopt a rather defensive 4-1-2-3 tactic, which quickly changed to a contain 5-men defensive line whenever we had a lead. This new approach led us to an incredible start to the campaign, collecting 13 points in the first 6 matches, and briefly leading the table. However, these days of glory where numbered, and were followed by a streak of just one win in 7 matches. We then added two wins in a row, and the accumulated points meant we where never in danger of relegation battles, but rather dwindled on the edge of the top-8. During the first half of the season, we where hands down the best defense in the league - but also the second to last offense. The second half of the season was miles off - we only managed 4 wins out of 15 matches, and got hammered 2-5, 2-4 and 0-4. We finished the regular season in 9th place, just a point shy of the championship group. The 7 matches in the relegation group were just a short wait for the end of the season, as our margin meant we were safe from relegation from the get go. In the end, we finished the season in a respectable 10th place, crowning us as the league overachievers. However, it must be said that our performances towards the end of the season were absolute rubbish - even when we won, it was through parking the bus after an early lead, with the opponent collecting something like 15 shots on goal more than us.

We also had a disappointing early exit from the State Cup, Losing in overtime to Hapoel Acre. I felt it was one of our better games this season, but we just couldn't make it count.

 

The Squad - in terms of squad news, we had two bits of bad news. First of all, our star GK and best player, Snir Dori, refused to renew his contract, wanting to move to a bigger club. I couldn't change his mind, and he went on a free transfer to Bnei Yehuda from the 1st tier. It's a massive Blow. Dori had a great season, leading the Liga Leumit in clean sheets, with 17 in 35 appearances. We had no substitute goalie, and it means I will have to rely on a sub-par youth intake GK next year. The second bit of news came from the front. We had big trouble there during the season, with two of our 3 strikers combining for 37 hours of football without scoring. The only consistent performer was Mikhail Kirtava, who led our scoring with a whopping 7 goals - and he decided to go on and announce his retirement from pro football and retreat to the minor leagues. The youth intake did not provide any strikers, so I'm left with only two clowns as my goalscorers. Other then that, no immediate concerns, as all players have contracts for two more seasons at least.

The honorable mention is that I have a U21 international already! however, it's not in Israel, and he's not a youth product. Yair Shpungin featured 4 times for the Estonia U21. I'm thinking of retraining him as a poacher to help with the offensive troubles.

 

Facilities and Finances - the board was kind to us, and despite our finances not being great, they allowed for two junior coaching updates, prompting us to adequate junior coaching to go along with adequate youth facilities. My finances are poor, losing quite a bit every month. The fact the I have absolutely no fan base doesn't help (I average like 5 fans for an away game, and my opponents usually have more fans than me in my home matches). Even the successful season did not bring about a rise in season tickets.

 

Home Grown Watch - So, in my first update, I said that I have two homegrown players from the intake before I took over. Eran Tsarfati (18a), who I thought could be a rotation player, actually became one of my first choices. He featured 34 times, returning 2 goals, 4 assists, and handing out delicious passes that my crappy offense couldn't capitalize on. Boaz Farhi (18b), whom I deemed rubish on my first post, actually progressed really well. He had 21 apps (6 starts) as a CD and as a newly trained DM.

 

Youth Intake - For some reason, my screenshot from the intake didn't work, so I'm using one from the start of the next season. The Intake gave me some much needed backups for the squad for next years and a couple of talented guys to look for as they develop. I tagged 9 of them. Most notable guys are:

  • Oren Jerasi (19a) - Nice potential in CD, my coaching staff adore him. Will only turn seventeen in December, so just U19 for him in the first half of the season. Could challenge for first team in January if develops well.
  • Kobi Yehezkel (19b) - Looks a promising DM, who could also help in set pieces. Will start as my backup DM. Could very well become a starter as my first choice DM prefers sleeping to training.
  • Uri Buskila (19c) - I have two great options in DL right now, but they are entering their 30's and are starting to decline a bit. Uri will only turn 17 in February, so he has a lot of time to "cook" in the U19. I can see him becoming my first choice DL in a couple seasons.
  • Moshe Uzan (19h) - He would not get mentioned in normal circumstances, but the Snir Dori situation means that Uzan is now my first and only GK for this season. A glimmer of hope is the meteoric jump he made from 4 to 14 determination in just 5 months.

 

Next Season Objectives: Again, I just want to survive, and give some of the youths their first chances. With the move from Dori to Uzan in goal, I reckon survival is going to be a lot more challenging this time around.

Season 16

European Qualification

After two straight years in the Champions League our expectations were to keep that streak going. After beating a team from the Faroe Islands and one from Malta vi faced RB Salzburg in the play-off. We beat them at this stage last year, so they were out for revenge. We went up 2-0 at home, but a horrible ending to the game saw them going home to Austria with a 3-4 win in the bag. We played magnificently in the away fixture, but the 4 goals we conceded at home was to much to overcome. We won 2-3, meaning we were knocked out by the away goal rule. This means we are heading to the Europa League, hopefully this can be a blessing in disguise as we might be ready to win some games and maybe fight for advancement in the group.

We are drawn against Napoli, Dnipro and Viktoria Plzen. Napoli will of course be very hard and Dnipro is a solid Ukrainian team, but Plzen we have beaten in qualification play before. It will be hard, but my expectations are to pick up at least 5 points, with advancement being a real chance this time around.

Greek Youth Adventure - Season 6

htMf2.png

A much shorter update this time, as real life started to get to me. We did pretty good in the League showing consistency as we finished again in 4th place, but we didn't do that great in the European Places Play-offs where we finished in the last position. But that was due also to the fact that we won the Greek Cup for our second time (and thus qualified for Europe again), and once the Champions league spot was out of our reach I played mostly rotation and prospect players. In the Europa League we lost in the first stage we entered, the 3rd qualifying round, so no groups or money for us this time.

Our Squad is now dominated by youth products, what worries me is that most of the key players are starting to claim the promise of treating the club as a stepping stone and laughable low release clauses for foreign clubs to their contract renewal. So far no one come sniffing around them, but I think that is just a question of time. Season awards go to our regular customers: Z Zonas and C Ntoupis. Our Youth Intake wasn't that spectacular this year.

Won again the manager of the season award, and also this interesting Offer. As I declined they decided to hire this dude - picked straight out of the park or something. Awkward silence moment. We are now the 4th club in Greece in term of finances also (around 10 million), behind only PAOK, Olympiakos and Panathinaikos. Regardless of my opinion we now have two feeder clubs, one from Serbia and one from Malta. Thinking about sending some guys to Serbian to gain some match experience. Finances looking decent and facilities slowly increasing, while the board expects us to still avoid relegation.

Loving all the updates!  I have just caught up on too many to be able to single out any for :thup:'s and not feel bad for those I do not mention  :(

 

So, my updates......

I have played 2 seasons since my last update, and I have to be honest, I am just not feeling it with Aachen currently.  I always loved putting together the update reports and this time around it feels like a chore.  I think it is because they were too big of a team for my liking to start with.  Their stadium was majestic and I have not touched it.  Their youth recruitment started out at average, which is great for most of the clubs we begin with and I have not had the chance to upgrade it yet.  It kind of felt like everything was handed to me, instead of building it myself.  So I have shelved them for now.

So last night I got three new saves set up for reloading in countries I have never played before.  Switzerland, Austria and Wales (I would be lying if I did not say how much I am enjoying @MCPlay's updates).

I then invited my 7 year old over and we decided to reload each country 3 times and then he would pick the team he liked the best.  All went according to plan, we reloaded Switzerland and Austria 3 times and had a favorite team for each picked out.  We then did the first Welsh reload and it was game over.  He went nuts when the following team appeared, and you will probably see why when you see the news item.....

So I am now manager of Port Talbot, nestled just off of the M4 wedged between Swansea and Cardiff......

Side note, and the more I say this the more you guys will hold me to it!  This entire save is going to be strikerless.  I had a very nicely working strikerless set-up going in the final season at Aachen (and I still didn't fall in love with them!) and I will be using that from the get-go in Wales.

@Braumiller Welcome to Wales. I am very excited to see you taking over Port Talbot, and looking forward to reading about your strikerless endeavours! Port Talbot actually managed the great feat of winning the Welsh Cup in my first season, while they were still not promoted to the Welsh Premier League. So you've got a team of potential giant-killers there!

Yay strikerless! Before I got distracted by factorio again (worse time sink than football manager!) I was working on a strikerless + libero tactic for maximum hipster value to go with my second attempt (which I have still not worked out where since every nation either wont load the clubs I want or loads them with too few players). I really should get back to it. :)

While real life has been getting in the way this week (should finally have some free time from tomorrow afternoon to really play thank god!) I too have been using a striker less system in the little game time I've been able to play as my only senior striker done his cruciate after 7 games and my 16 and 17 year olds just aren't ready to lead the line yet. Been working OK so far.

Mini-update Dec 31. 2032

After I told Jacob Davies 10D about the Danny Roberts challenge and what I wanted him to achieve he has had a couple of great seasons for me, scoring 55 and 51 goals total. This season however he has kicked it up a notch, and at the end of the calendar year he already has notched 52 goals, 36 in the league. The league record is 37 goals, so he will surely smash this. He has also gotten his Wales-debut, becoming my second ever international player. He is now at 193 goals total. Having just turned 22 it will require a lot more seasons like this for him to reach 1000 goals, but nothing and everything is possimpible

I originally intended to stay away from FM17 until after my written assessments is due, but after spending my time reading every single career-thread on this and other forums, my power of will disappeared. I have decided to give this challenge a go, playing as my home town club from Norway. They got relegated from the 2nd division(3rd level) this season, so I started up in april 2017 and went on holiday until 12. january 2018. Only had to reload three times, and there it was. 

My profile - Club facilities - Squad - Youth intake - General club info

The facilites is pretty basic, not very good, but not very bad. The club finances is not very good either, so I doubt there will be many investments until we get promoted atleast one division. The names in the squad doesn't tell you much, but a lack of an assistant in the beginning made it hard to get reports. Thanks to some poor research on the club Alexander Ødegaard is still playing at the age of 36 and is the best player in the squad, alongside the defender Attila. Both the goalkeepers are pretty good for a team of my stature, as is the strikers Myrkaskog and Kvalvågnes. In the midfield positions there are room for improvement, as is the case when it comes to fullbacks. To my surprise we even got a youth intake the first season, with some very promising youngsters. The two at the top will be introduced to the first team immediately, while a few of the others with decent personalities probably will get a chance during the season. 

The season

Mid season - End of season - Stats

We were expected to battle against relegation, so we went at it in a careful fashion, playing a defensive or counter-attacking 4-3-3(or 4-1-2-2-1 with wingers). It wasn't very entertaining, but we got the results. After the first half of the season I event thought that we could go up, but a few injuries and some experiments with a 4-4-2 put and end to that. Most of the teams in the league play the same way. Away from home it's 4-5-1 and defending all the way, at home it's 4-4-1-1 and a bit more attacking. Breaking down the 4-5-1 at home caused us some problems, as you can see on the goal-difference. We lack the ability and creativity to break down defences in our current structured form, so I might try a bit more creative freedom at home next season. Defensively things was ok, but we have a job to do on defending set pieces, especially corners to the far post. Close to half the goals against was after set pieces, so something has to happen there. 

Development-wise it's not much to report. Eikeskog played when he was fit, but suffered a torn harmstring during the season and missed a few months. Zetterdal was more in and out of the team, due a few bad mistakes and bad performances. During the season Jørgen Berge got promoted to the team and played in the DMC-position, doing okay, but nothing more than that. Next season Eikeskog will be more of a playmaker than the box-to-box role he's had this season. I have a few problems with the squad personality, especially the lack of determination. Ødegaard is the only player with decent determination with 10, the rest is stuck around 5, so for the youngsters it is dropping all around. Next season I might let some of the more experienced players with low determination (>5) go, to see if it can improve the squad average. Trouble is Ødegaard is 38 years old, so someone has to take over his job in keeping the determination up. Will probably have sign up the youngsters with good personality, even though their CA and PA is low, just to improve squad personality.

2017 Season: Ykkönen

JäPS.jpeg

League Position: 6th (Media prediction: 9th)

Fixtures 1 Fixtures 2

I’ve restarted in Finland at Järvenpään Palloseura (JäPS), a club with no major history but good levels of community engagement. They came up alongside Honka, who had won the previous season’s Finnish Cup from the third tier, similar to Litex in @smp20’s save. European football obviously appealed but I felt like doing this the hard way. Thankfully the club had enough talent to keep its head above water and even agreed to increase my junior coaching budget. Highlights included a huge win against Ekenäs on opening day and a classic 4-3 comeback against PK-35. A very closely-matched league, I’ll be looking to move forwards next season.

Suomen Cup: Group Stage

We gave a good account of ourselves, beating top-flight Ilves and only losing once. But in a group where draws were very common it wasn’t quite enough.

***

Season Records

Transfers: Nothing to see here.

***

Notable Players

Mahdi Ali: There was no-one who particularly stood out all season but Ali was mostly solid at the back, and a factor in us reaching and surpassing the 30 point mark.

Tuure Nummi: Our top scorer, a promising if inconsistent forward. May well attract interest from top flight clubs.

Teimuraz Apriamashvali: Our 29 year-old player/coach provides some much-needed creativity in midfield.

Arnold Uschanoff: A reasonable enough keeper, included for his very good record of saving penalties.

Yusuf Jama: Was mostly solid at the back and in midfield, he might help bridge the gap between my ageing squad and my youth prospects.

***

Youth intake 2017

An excellent intake, a number of highly-determined players that look a lot better potentially than my current bunch.

Mikko Lehtimäki YP1a: Calling it- this guy will become our record goalscorer. True, he only needs about 50 to do so, but he looks like he could developed into a decent bullying forward by Finnish standards. Already scored three goals for us, so he’s well on track!

Jari Lönnström YP1b: A very decent DM option. Passing seems to be a weak point across the entire intake but once we make progress there I’m expecting good things.

Christoffer Orenius YP1c: An excellent option for the left-wing, a part of the field which no squad member has declared as their own as yet. Another teenager who has already found the scoresheet for the senior side.

Lauri Mäkelä YP1d: Should develop into a good midfielder for this level.

Tommi Virtanen YP1e: A fairly average goalkeeper.

Hello all! I've followed from the sidelines in the past but looking forward to finally joining the challenge myself this year on FMT. I will be taking my managerial talents abroad and starting my first save in Switzerland. Upon my first reload, I've taken the helm of FC Stade Nyonnais. They seem to be a pretty legit squad and the team looks promising. I will upload my manager and team info later, hopefully with some season updates as well. Looking forward to creating the next La Masia in the land of the Swiss!

Dulwich Hamlet - Vanarama National - Season 2019/20

Dulwich Hamlet Badge.png

League Table - FA Cup - FA Trophy - Transfers - Squad - Finances

 

On paper it's another solid season, we were predicted to finish bottom but ended 10 places above that and were never even close to be in the relegation battle, however I can't help but feel frustrated at how this season went. 7 games in and we lost our only senior striker Dan Carr for the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury. A change in formation was required as our young players were not ready to lead the line, the change went well and around the turn of the year we won 8 out of 9 games (7 in a row to set a new club record) and found ourselves in 2nd place. We then hit the worst run of form I've ever encountered, after our win over Sutton on Jan 7th we would only win 3 of our next 17 games, losing 11 of them. The positional graph makes for rough reading. The lack of striker really told as the goals dried up and we sank. I was glad when the season was over. The only bright spots were a couple of young players getting some good game time with James Daly YP02C pushing to make the RB slot his own and Vangelis Bosganas YP01A tying down a regular place in the side.

Cups

The FA Cup we got to the first round where we played league one Bolton at home, a near sell out crowd saw us nearly snatch the win but the 2-2 draw meant a replay, another tight game saw Bolton squeak through with the winner coming in extra time
In the FA Trophy we just had one of those days, 2-0 up after 22 mins and we threw it away to lose 3-2.

Youth Intake

Another pretty solid intake here, we seem to produce CBs and wingers but not much else right now.

Ben Nightingale YP03A - CB and the highest rated prospect in out U18 team. Made his debut towards the end of the season once Playoffs were out of our reach
Jordan Woodward YP03B - RB that should help push Daly on.
Kevin Williams YP03C - left winger to give us needed options there
Stewart Carter YP03D - A DM where we have no one natural, needs some work though

Yeah, it's inspired by a few of the career update posts. Had to do it in Google sheets and then paste, but it's still annoyingly fiddly...

Good luck in Wales, and who knows? You could be the new @MCPlay!

First Vienna Football Club 2017/2018

Following the bitter disappointment in Switzerland, I travelled to Austria and discovered this gem in my reload. FVFC is the oldest club in the country and has a storied History.  While their successful days are far behind them, the phoenix aims to rise from the ashes when they decide to hire their new American Manager. The club has a decent enough setup given their finances, professional status, and Facilities in order to give this save a proper go. My Squad is pretty thin and injuries could hurt us badly with so little depth, but that's what makes this a challenge! Of course no Transfers, but I was able to hire some really great back room staff ( 3+ stars ) to make up for that, so we'll see where it takes us. I'll update at mid season, so let the fun begin!

@darren1983 Not a bad season, not sure if your team is  prepared anyway to go up, so I guess a steady growth is preferable to avoid the sack :) Good luck and hang in there.

It was a fine season yeah, just frustrating to be 2nd at the turn of the year and hit that run of form. I think the key to success in England is hanging in there really, it's a like a war of attrition, just gotta keep going. I have set myself a target of around 5 seasons per division so gave myself 10 seasons to get out of non league football, winning promotion in my first season just meant it gave me 9 attempts to get to league 2 :D

Season 16

League Table | Transfers | Season Review

Dafabet Welsh Premier League

11 in a row. Went unbeaten for only the second time, racking up a career best 92 points.

Cup runs

Won both. Forget trophy cabinets, we need to get something bigger. I'm thinking something along the lines of Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin.

Europa League

Fixtures

After disappointing play-off loss to RB Salzburg it was off to the Europa League for the first time in some time. After seeing the draw I felt like this could be our european breakthrough, was this assumption correct?

We started out losing away to Viktoria Plzen, which was very disappointing, as they were the weakest team in the group. Then Napoli came to visit, and we were unable to cause an upset. 0 points after 2 games, but we were still adamant about our chances. We then travelled to Ukraine, and grabbed 3rd european group stage win of all time, 1-2! When Dnipro came to visit us, we felt confident based on our match-up in Ukraine. That confidence turned into a slaughtering of massive proportions. And for the first time, it wasn't ut that got slaughtered in europe, incredibly it was we who won the game 6-1! Felt so good to be on the right side of one of these hammerings, as god knows we have endured some harsh results in the group stages in years past.

We now had the chance to secure advancement when Viktoria Plzen travelled to wales, but we couldn't keep the win streak going and settled on a 1-1 draw. This meant that we most likely needed a point in Napoli in the last game, a tall task. But we delivered! Somehow we were dominant from start to finish, and the 1-1 draw flattered Napoli. For the first time we have advanced past the group stage!

We drew Zenit St. Petersburg in the first knockout round. We were once again dominating the game against a much bigger foe, but as in Napoli we were unable to find the cutting edge. The home game ended 2-2, but we had all the chances to win it. The game in Russia was far tighter fought, but their quality became the decisive factor as they put away both their chances, resulting in a 2-0 loss. It was a bit disappointing losing a tie were we actually felt like we were the better team, but this european campaign will of course be seen as a resounding success!

 

Youth Setup:

Youth Intake

 

Poor intake, nothing here really.

 

Big Fat Goalie Challenge:

Owen 14B had a decent season. He was injured for two months which of course hampered his goal scoring, in the end he got half the amount of last years 8 goals. He converted 3 of 4 penalties which is good, but the real cherry on top was his first free kick goal. He decided to take matters into his own hands (feet?) when we were struggeling for a goal against Connah's Quay, and smacked a 25 yard free kick into the top corner to secure a 1-0 win!

Dave Owen 14B - 13 Goals. 4 this season.

Richie Price 11D - 4 Goals

Longevity Challenge:

The aim in this Challenge is to get players to 1000 appearances for the club. We're currently playing just over 50 games a season, so it will require an incredibly injury-free player 20 Seasons to do it.

Most appearances:

Emyr Boyle 2D - 482 Appearances - 12 this season

Huw Price 4A - 471 Appearances - 52 this season

Ones to watch:

Dafydd Davies 7A - 383 Appearances - 48 this season

Callum Hart 12A - 152 Appearances - 51 this season

Rory Cooper 12B- 132 Appearances - 34 this season

 

Danny Roberts Challenge

The aim in this Challenge is to get a player to score 1000 goals during his career, national team goals count.

Most goals:

Huw Price 4A - 339 goals in 471 games. A bit of a bounceback season saw Huw bang in 30 goals. He also assisted 28 times, mostly to his goaltastic partner

Jacob Davies 10D - 220 goals in 177 games. 79 goals this season. 79 goals this season! 79! And he doesn't even shoot penalties. Could Jacob be the guy to get to 1000? He regularly draws interest from lower end Premier League clubs, but he doesn't kick up to much of a fuss when I tell him that he won't be allowed to leave. This guy is pretty good. His 52 league goals in 30 games absolutely demolished his old record of 37. He was only injured for 2 weeks this year, hopefully he can keep being an ironman in years to come.

Dulwich Hamlet - Vanarama National - Season 2020/21

Dulwich Hamlet Badge.png

League Table - FA Cup - FA Trophy - Squad - Transfers - Finances

 

Another tough slog this season but finished around same as last year (1 place lower and 2 points less) but again were never really in danger of going down (closest we got was dropping to just above the bottom 4 for 2 game but even then we were 7 points clear) we were played and finished like the team we are - inconsistent. We'd go 6 or 7 without loss then 6 or 7 without a win, biggest issue is goals, Daniel Carr seems to have lose something after his cruciate injury last season and we've yet to produce a forward who can (or even looks like) score on an even semi regular basis, the brightest spot is again the form of Vangelis Bosganas YP01A with his best season yet, ended as our top scorer with 12 (10 in the league) and 4 assists. In the run in we went 7 games without losing (only conceding 1 goal and setting a new club record with 6 games without conceding) so I fully expect not to win any of our opening 7 games next season.

Cups

The Fa Cup saw us get to the 1st round but beaten by League 2 Accrington. In the FA Trophy we had a nice run to the 1/4 finals before eventual runners up Gateshead were just too strong on the day.

Youth Intake

Another OK one, still seem to only produce full backs, centre backs and wingers. Going for a change in personal in the summer when my HOYD contract expires. Did tag 4 players though

Duncan Sonner YP04A - versital defensive player, already 2* CA so will look to give him game time soon
Kamohelo Gwala YP04B - another CB, not a fan of his personality so trying to get him tutored 
Greg Brown YP04C - another fullback, able to cover on both sides
Aeson Ndayisaba YP04D - Another wide player

Career Overview

Season		League		Position	Achievements

2017/18		VNS		1st		Champions
2018/19		VNL		7th		
2019/20		VNL		14th 
2020/21		VNL		15th

Next Season

Get to 50 points again as soon as I can, then try and kick on. Top 10 finish is the aim.

@MCPlay - I think Jacob Davies might be possible for the 1000, what may hold him back is he's not quite good enough to be regularly scoring for the national team, most recent Danny Roberts completions have fallen over the line with the help goals for the national team. Of course if he can keep the form up in the league it might not matter!

@darren1983 - Tough run of luck with the youth intakes positions. The finances there in England look tough as usual, seems like you're going to be forced to rely on youth sooner rather than later because they'll be more affordable.

Season 01 2017-18

The Season As It Happened....

Preseason
In addition to the two usual pillars of my preseasons (lots of easy games at home to increase fitness & morale) this was also used to start several retraining projects.  Most important was to get myself someone who is relatively decent on the ball at DM (which was initially had zero) and then get more people comfortable in more roles with which we will be using.

August
A surprisingly good start to life at Port Talbot.  League and cup saw us go unbeaten for our first 5 games, to give us a great starting point for the season.

October 21st 2017
Our first game against TNS.  They were all over us as expected, but we gave them a complete and unexpected mugging.  We had 3 shots to their 17 and ran out 3-0 winners....

December 18th 2017
A 5-7 week injury to our only goalkeeper at the club!  Disaster struck and we had to play an outfielder in goal for 7 games.  This spanned the last 5 league games before the split and also the end to our MG Cup run.

January 13th 2018
Our second game against TNS.  This was during our outfielder in goal run and our form was understandably poor.  We went in at HT 0-3 down as they were extracting revenge for the hit-and-run game earlier in the season.  After some hairdryer treatment, the lads went out in the 2nd half with a different mindset.  We pulled it all the way back to 3-3 and then in the 85th minute unbelievably went 4-3 up!  We went turtle shell to protect this, but a soft goal in the 86th minute made it 4-4.  Still, a good result and we left things alone.  Then we cemented our status as TNS's early bogeyteam by getting the winner in a 9 goal thriller in the 89th minute!

January 21st 2018
The very next week was the MG Cup final, against....... TNS.  We were on a high after last week and carried straight on.  We went on to win 4-1 and took home our first ever silverware for the club!  3 for 3 against TNS so far....

February 2018
Our main goalscorer Luke Bowen announces he is going to retire at the end of the season!  He is only going to be 30 and I was not able to persuade him to reconsider.  This is going to be a big loss.
Additionally Jamie Rewbury also announced his retirement at the end of the season.  A first choice central defender we are now going to have to plug gaps at both ends of the pitch......

March 4th 2018
Injury disaster #2!  James Loveridge went down in a game and afterwards we got hit with the news he damaged his cruciate ligaments and is out for approx 11 months :(  A key outfielder, who excelled at right midfield but I have my eye on for AMC moving forward, with the news of Luke Bowen's retirement.

March 10th 2018
Youth Candidates 2018!  A decent first intake with some workable kids.  7 tagged in total with hopes for 2-3 to make claims on 1st team spots going forward.  Apart from one exception a little concerned over the low determination in the group.  Hoping this is not a sign of things to come.
Michael Shrimpton 2018-A - A very nice looking player.  Natural at MC, but has ability at AMC and FC as well.  Due to his height I will probably groom him to be my MC, but I will retrain him as an AMC until he is accomplished to give me flexibility.
Rob Martin 2018-B - A natural striker, which we do not use.  Will be retrained as an AMC in the hope he is our main goalscorer in the near term future.    Nice pace and decent finishing and composure for our low level.
Conah Howells 2018-C - Great versatility here, able to fill in at 4 positions in our tactic.  Not sure on a final direction for him yet, but he will see games due purely to being able to play in a lot of positions    .
Jordan Martin 2018-D - A decent pacey, flair wide man.  Saw immediate action due to James Loveridge's long term injury and should get the first half of next season at least as well
Liam Coleman 2018-E - A second GK at the club!  Will not immediately challenge for a first team spot, but great to finally have cover
Gareth Pugh 2018-F - Can play either flank and therefore provides good options from the bench
Michael Saunders 2018-G - A full back who lacks technicals.  Hoping his potential equals decent stat progression

March 26th 2018
So, our chairman out of the blue announced he was selling the club.  A (thankfully) very brief period of news followed before we were bought out by a local investor, Tom Jones!  I presume not THAT Tom Jones, as he just took out a 61k loan to clear our debts and no initial or future plans for additional cash for the club.  We reestablished our youth philosophy with him, so all looks good going forward.

Championship Group Split
Despite the highs of the unexpected TNS wins, we were suffering from the lack of GK and our league form dipped.  Even when he returned, we struggled to regain form.  TNS whooped us twice as well!
We went into the last game of the season knowing a win would get us 3rd and a Europa League spot.  We were winning with 2 minutes left, but we conceded late on to make it 2-2 and fall to 4th.  Then in the 93rd minute we conceded a penalty and lost 2-3!  This put us bottom of the split table (6th) and an away game in the European Playoffs, instead of a home game which 4th or 5th would have afforded us.  Here we lost.  That is all I want to say about that! :)
