[FM17] Kautokeino IL - Youth Only In Norway

Recommended Posts

So, after my last save with Ta´Xbiex disappeared when my computer crashed, I had to start a new long term save.  This time I'll try to take Kautokeino IL to the top of the norwegian league (and the world?), only using youth products. I will try to do four to five updates each season.

Kautokeino IL play in the 5th tier of Norwegian football, in the 4. Divisjon avd 24 (4. Division, group 24). I chose Kautokeino as they are the one of the most northern clubs in Norway, and one of the worst in this group. I actually used to play at this level myself when I played football.

 

Anyway, here is the club and the manager.

Say hello to Warg Zala. Some random dude that showed up one day and wanted to be the new manager of Kautokeino.

And to everyones surprise that's what he became. (As always my manager is from two "weird" nations)

I felt kinda sad when I saw how long the manager before me had been in charge.

Pre Season 2016.

4.%20divisjon%20avd%2024_%20Overview%20S

Bossekop is the only team in this group that is Semi-pro. So they should have no problem in the league.

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures.

For some reason this is the only teams we could play this pre season. I think we did pretty good against Tromsø 2 and Alta 2, as they play a couple of leagues above us.

 

The squad this season.

Kautokeino%20IL_%20Players%20Players-2.p

A couple of these players have been released.

Inconsistency, that's the word of the day. From three nice wins to a loss against one of the worst teams in the league...

We're around the place where we should be according to the bookmakers.

I'm doing a youth save also in Norway, I chose HamKam, bascially for their name! 

But they started me in division 2, have you got a patch to be starting in division four?

End of the 2016 Season.

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures_

A good second half of the season got ruined by the 0-3 and the 2-6 losses...

Kirkenes%20v%20Kautokeino_%20Overview%20

Look at that... The same person scoring all their goals...

 

4.%20divisjon%20avd%2024_%20Overview%20S4.%20divisjon%20avd%2024_%20Overview%20S

So, as I said before the season, Bossekop did not have any problems at all in this league.

We finished 5th, and that's three places above the expectations, so thats pretty good. Let's hope we get a couple good players in when the youth intake happens.

Logje really stood out this season, scoring 16 goals and 9 assists in 22 games!

 

The best eleven so far!

As I said in the opening post, Kautokeino is one of the most northern cities in Norway. And therefore they are part of the Laplands. In Lapland, the Sami People live. And they actually have their own national football team (not recognised by FIFA). They compete in a "World cup" of states, minorities, stateless peoples and regions that FIFA don't recognise. More info HERE.

Four of the players from Kautokeino IL, play for the Sápmi national team in real life (not on FM of course). Two of them is in the game, Per Isak Vars and Frank Ole Vars.

Just a little bit of info that I find interesting! :)

Youth Intake 2017.

Now then, the most important thing about this save, the youth intake! I just want some good players this year, does not matter what position.

Kautokeino%20IL%20Youth%20Candidates_%20

A bunch of 5* pot players, let's just hope they live up to that.

The three best.

Petter%20Johansen%20JR01c_%20Overview%20

Stig%20Tore%20Kolstad%20JR01f_%20Overvie

Admir%20Masovic%20JR01b_%20Overview%20Pr

Neither one of these players really stand out, but I hope they will grow to something good.

Youth Intake 2018

All I want is a good player! Does not really matter what position.

Kautokeino%20IL%20Youth%20Candidates_%20

We got two 4.5* CA, both named Lars Gaute, weird... We also got our first foreign player, from Faroe Islands.

Three, maybe four will go straight in to the starting eleven.

 

The three best.

We have to survive this season, and thats the main objective. This league is MUCH harder than the one we have been a part of the last couple of years.

Just as the two last years, the pre season games are "meh" at best.

Mid Season 2018

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures_

We really struggled at the start of the season. But suddenly, everything clicked, and we started to play very good!

Norwegian%20Third%20Division%20Group%204Norwegian%20Third%20Division%20Group%204

We're still in the relegation battle though, so we really have to continue this form, or else it's goodbye...

 

We also participated in the Norwegian Cup this year, for the first time.

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures-

We lost against Odd in the 4th round. 0-2 is not a bad result, as Odd play in the top league.

We played two second teams for the first two games. That's a problem, because there should be no second teams in the Cup... It does not really matter, but it is possible that a second team can win the cup, and then qualify for the euro cup...

 

And we got another upgrade!

We were VERY lucky that we had the three worst teams in the three last games, otherwise we would have been relegated...

Norwegian%20Third%20Division%20Group%204Norwegian%20Third%20Division%20Group%204

We were totally **** in defense this season. We conceded the most goals in the league, and that really has to change...

 

Kautokeino%20IL_%20Players%20Players_4.p

No one really stood out this season. And two of the players that I thought would really help us this season played really bad when they got the chance. And when I say two of the players, I mean Lars Gaute Wulff and Finn Slettli...

It's the first time I've managed a team this far north. The only problem so far is that there are no teams close, so we have no one to play against in pre-season :p Thank you!

Youth Intake 2019

So, after the horrible defense last season, I really hoped for some defenders this year.

Kautokeino%20IL%20Youth%20Candidates_%20

And that is what we got, a right back and a central defender that goes straight into the team. Plus a lot of other 5* POT.

 

The three best.

Not a good sign to have worse odds than the teams that promoted...

 

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures_

Can't really say it's good to lose two of the three games against our U19 team... That being said, most of our first team players played in the U19 side, for some reason...

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures_

A quick exit from the cup this year. Strømsgodset play in the top league, so 2-4 is not that bad.

Kautokeino%20IL_%20Players%20Players_6.p

One thing we really need is to score more goals. 9 goals in 27 games is not good.

I had my favourite ever FM save game at Hammerfest, where I ended up winning the Champions League (Shameless boasting I know).

You've got quite a few players with a string starting CA which is good for your immediate squad strength.  Hopefully they can improve too.

I'd say "yay, Norway", but then Kautokeino is actually further away from where I live than Paris (atleast by driving straight to Kautokeino by Norway only, or straight to Paris).

But good luck nonetheless. :thup:

I really need a left midfielder now. We only have one, and he is slowly becoming one of the worst players in the starting eleven. A GK with high CA would also be nice!

I'm very happy with this intake, as I got what I asked for! No one with a good personality though, and almost everyone has low determination.

We're not scoring many goals, but we're also very good at defending this season. Mo is the next game after this update, so we'll see how that goes. We have to beat them to have a chance to promote.

This just isn't as cool as Malta. :( 

Very solid quick progress so far, 2 promotions in such few seasons with a youth-only side is excellent. I notice you're playing the same weird wide 4-1-3-2 formation as in Malta, I'm a bit surprised that works that well but clearly it does for you!

I really did not want to start again in Malta, so I had to chose another country. Nothing I can do about it really :p

I have changed it quite a bit since I used it in Malta, but it's working wonders so far so I'll continue to use it :)

I am a bit surprised that we have done this well to be honest. A short drop in form and we're in the red zone though, so we have to keep it up.

 

Kautokeino%20IL_%20%20Senior%20Fixtures-

For the first time in many year we're actually still in the cup when I do the mid season update. We're facing Odd, a premier league side the next round, so I'm guessing thats where we are going out.

A pretty good first season int the second division. Close games all season, and that shows in the league as well. Very close between some teams!

Again, our defense is really bad, conceding second most goals in the league. But, then again, we scored secong most goals as well! We just have to tighten up at the back, and we'll come close to the top.

This just isn't as cool as Malta. :( 

I can assure you, Kautokeino is way, way cooler than Malta (in the strictest sense of the word..) :D

End of the 2021 season

We made it! After we lost 0-3 against Førde I thought our promotion hopes where over, but we fought back! It helped that Mo had a horrible end to the season. And thank god for Molde 2 won, as they can't gain promotion!

Huh? As long as Molde's first team hasn't deteriorated exceptionally the past seasons, the Molde 2 team should be allowed to gain promotion from 3rd division to 2nd division. Or is the custom DB you're using not "up to it" for all rules and regulations? I see that your 3rd division consisted of teams from all over Norway, not so much geographically distributed as they are IRL (but that's probably quite hard to program). And of course, the irregularities of the early cup rounds are quite "off" (a third division team from Finnmark playing teams from Sunnmøre, Buskerud and Akershus in the first round can happen, but not as often as seen here).
