There's Norway I'd Go Oslo As That

Recommended Posts

Here we go with Stabæk! Great facilities as well as excellent Junior Coaching and Youth Recruitment. They've only won the Norwegian top flight once, back in 2008. This is something I want to rectify along with getting the club into either the Champions League group stages or the Europa League group stages. The furthest they have gotten previously has been the EL Playoff round and the CL Third Qualifying round.

As you can see the average age is extremely young, at only 20 while we only have one 30+ year old in the squad. The next oldest is 26....

THE SQUAD

A good amount of positive personalities as well as a strong core of Norwegians to call on. Africans also populate the squad and there is even an American joined by a Georgian. (sounds like the first line of a bad joke....) We even have an Indian! Sayouba and Skjonsberg are the only two with international caps.

The board left me with the following expectations which I find fair enough.

Financially, we are healthy with over a million in the bank. 

 

LET US BEGIN!

I read the title as "Onslow", and thought to myself, "Oh! Nice!"

On topic, Mandé is one of my favourite keepers in FM. Classic insane lad but also a brilliant stopper.

Well done man! I'm under no pressure then, haha! Cheers for the player suggestions, It'll certainly make up for only having two scouts on the books...

Great news! I think there is some talent in this side that I'm looking forward to managing.

I just noticed you still have Nicolai Naess in your squad, in real life he's popped off to the MLS. Excellent that he's still with you in this.

He looks very good. Young, good personality and will be a definite starter. Let's hope we can hold on to him!

Well @BoxToBox, that didn't take long.

'Mandé, give us til the end of the season will ya? Then you can go if you still want to.'

"The end of the season?? **** no, I need to leave now, clubs aren't going to wait around."

'If your potential is as big as your ego they will. You're staying here until the end of your contract and that's FINAL.'

The big headed twat thinks he can leave whenever he wants, he ain't going nowhere. Get used to another 3 and a half years!

I can neither confirm nor deny that a grapefruit was used in the disciplining process.

75k from SK Brann, the Swede is here to play as a Target Man. I wanted more experience and quality up front, hopefully Orlov provides. (I will update the screenshot later.)

A successful preseason in my opinion.

Njie with the pick of the goals in the 6-0 hammering of Ringebu-Favang. What a beauty!

We also signed Ba on a free to boost our centre half options.

League game number one saw the lads pull out a 2-1 win after falling behind 16 minutes in to the opposition's first attempt on target. Aanesland came off the bench to equalize, in the process becoming the club's youngest scorer. Orlov grabbed a deserved winner, sliding home a cross on 84 minutes. Kassi provided a top class display as a roaming playmaker.

Game number two saw us run out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Kassi off the bench. He slotted home a cross from right back Granli to secure the three points and a second victory. Interestingly our two POM winners so far have both been our roaming playmakers.

The third and final game in a short space of time started terrifically when we went two up inside half an hour. IK Started poorly I guess you could say... (I'm sorry.) Ohi restored our lead before a late scare, a cross from deep that ended up floating into the top corner...... We held on however for a third straight win.

Bad performance against one of the worst defences. We gave the ball away badly for both goals and Hanche-Olsen made two mistakes in both. He did redeem himself slightly with a great ball forward to assist Ekblom's finish but still, we need better.

Solid start, but for the blip in the last game.

 

Targeting a title straight away or something a little more unambitious?

I was unsure of what to aim for at the start of the season. Given our start, I'm wanting to finish top 5 but anywhere in the top half at least.

What version of FM is that? Weird to see Ajer at Start.

OT: Solid start, mate, keep it going.

It's 16, only got it towards the end of the cycle so didn't see the point in getting 17. (I'm cheap. :rolleyes:)
