[FM18] Ta' Xbiex SC - Youth Only Malta

Recommended Posts

Pre Season 2023/2024

A big jump from last year, no wonder really.

We did not play many friendlies this pre season, because of the Euro Cup games. We played against our three hardest opponents, and lost every game...

Ta' Xbiex SC in Europe!

So, for the first time ever we are in the Euro Cup, and on our first trip outside of Malta we are going to Iceland, to play Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar. A team that should beat us.

aJGe3wP.png

We did not play good in the first half, and did not have a single shot. The second half was much better, and we got two goals. Two goals that turned out to be very important!

bB6Whpg.png

This is the second game, and this time we did not play a good game, and we were VERY lucky to even get a goal. BUT, that goal saved us, and we were through to the next round!

 

And it turned out we had to take another trip to Icelaand, this time to play Knattspyrnufélagið Valur, this team actually finished two places behind FH in the league, and proved to be an easier opponent.

XPDCCqd.png

We did not start the game well, but around the 30th minute we started to play, and turned the game around.

wmGbpB1.png

A close game, but we won it in the end, and we were in to the next round.

 

And there we got... INTER... The absolute worst possible team we could get, and I just imaged us being beaten into pulp...

We played at home the first game

GVbJfjw.png

A least we scored a goal! But, 1-4 is not so bad against Inter.

H2Fy0Bu.png

Just pure luck to not concede more goals in this game to be honest! :D And again, I do not think 0-3 away against Inter is so bad, but my players did not agree.

GnksgbG.png

There were 33892 people at the game, 36 of them was away fans...

 

And of course with European football, there comes money!

P3Ux55L.pngtiZWgL1.png

It has been an okay season so far. Only two losses, and one draw. The 1-2 game against Pietà Hotspurs just had to happen, as we had three of the best players at the club out with injury and suspension. We are only three points behind Hibernians, and I think we can catch them if we continue our form.

Not as good as last years years intake, but I doubt we ever will get that again!

This is still a very good intake though, too bad the best players play in the position we have the best cover.

Number three yet again, and I have to say I'm happy with it, even though we did not play that well in the second half of the season. And we screwed up on the possibility to get the second place :( We got three more points this year though!

 

dakkcY5.png

But we won the FA Trophy again! We got the absolute easiest way to the final, and in the final we were matched up against Swieqi United, a team that finished 5th in the 4th tier of Maltese football!

Hibernians beat us three out of three times this year. Four if you count the pre season game!

Ta' Xbiex SC in Europe 2024

For the first draw last year we got FH, a team from Iceland. This year the draw gave us a harder opponent, in Victoria Plzen from Czech Republic.

They have player like Matej Vydra ( former Watford and Derby), Yanga-Mbiva (former Newcastle, Roma and Lyon) and Sebastian Rudy (former Stuttgart, Hoffenheim and Bayen Munchen). So they have some very good players!

O6vixgI.png  GgiTYax.png

But we actually managed to win! A very unfair result to be honest, as they were the better team by far!

 

Next team up, MFK Ruzomberok from Slovakia, a team that is not as good as Plzen.

w044jV3.png  RmaSsRt.png

And as it turned out, I was right. They did not play as good as Plzen, and we beat them 4-1 on aggregate.

 

Now then, for the next round we could draw everything from Lincoln (Gibraltar) to Tottenham!

Well, our nest opponent was Boavista, a pretty good team from Portugal.

laeNZC7.png  jyYzoMl.png

In the first game we actually had a very good chance to at least get a draw, but two yellow cards in 3 minutes for Rennie Buttigieg (JR05e), did not do us any good. And in the second game we got trashed...

It has been a pretty good season so far, with a bunch of big wins. The loss against St. Andrews really pissed me off, we should have won that with no problem, but we conceded 3 goals after the 87th minute!

This might be a problem... This happened after the Birkirkara game. He has been on fire this season, just take a look at his stats!

Does anyone know what this means? I have never seen this before.

In real-life, Melita are amateur and the club statute forbids them ever paying their players. The national association also grants them an exemption from paying players. I therefore set their status in the editor as always amateur, and the game seems to have some issues in representing that. Go figure!

 

Loving your career :)

27th of March 2025, the day our youth players really made an impact on the national team!

mXjw9Ak.png

This is the current squad of the national team, and as you can see, there are 6 players that has come from our club!

Glenn Vella, Jurgen Muscat, Darren magro, Rennie Buttiegieg and Warren Azzopardi all started in the World Cup Qualifying game against The Czech Republic. A game Malta only lost 0-1.

But we won the cup yet again! Third time in a row now! I would like to beat Hibernians in the league, and let them win the Cup to be honest.

Glenn Vella has been insane to be honest. 35 goals in 25 games!

Ta' Xbiex in Europe 2025

First up this year, Rangers!

J874fvg.png6xJzy8r.png

At home in the first game, and it was a win. A game we were the best team, even though they had the ball most of the time. In the second game, we were very lucky, and Jurgen Muscat (JR06a) had the game of his life, with a 8.2 rating! The player that scored the only goal in the second game is actually from Malta, and is the player on the national team that is worth the most!

 

Next up, Inter Baki, or Inter Peşäkar Idman Klubu as it is really called. A club from Azerbaijan, and a team that we should beat.

ZMzoIP2.pngxxqUQNc.png

It was not as easy as I wanted it to be, and both teams missed a lot of really good opportunities. But we won the second game 3-0, and we were in the next round!

 

There we got Vorskla Poltava, a team from Ukraine. This team places in the middle of Rangers and Inter Baki in terms of quality.

krIRZ03.pngWGAprx6.png

We won the first game 4-0! And take a look at those stats. We did not play well at all, and had a TON of luck! Only four shots on goal, and scored every time! In the second game I did not use all of the first team player, but we still managed a draw.

 

And for the final two games to get in to the Europa League group stages we got, HNK Rijeka, a team from Croatia. A good team.

9817vjC.pngBuaN1oT.png

And this is how close we got! All in all, the better team won. But Glenn Vella (JR06c) missed a penalty in the 90+1 minute in the first game, and that could have made a massive difference!

Ta' Xbiex in Europe 2026

First up, FK Sarajevo, from Bosnia & Herzegovina. Perhaps the "easiest" team so far for us.

MK19RON.pngcViW44y.png

And it shows in the result really. We had no problems with them.Marong (JR09a) got his first start in the second game, and scored a goal.

 

The next team we had play was Rennes, and I think this was the worst team we could get at this time...

ZxuABtb.pngA61oyw9.png

But we won the first game! It was an amazing result, and perhaps our best win ever! But we lost the second game. Only 0-1, but still enough to see us out of the EL. And it was deserved as well, we could have lost 0-8!

Just to show you what we had to deal with in the Rennes games
