Funny that the teams that is the hardest to beat are our own U19s!

 

The Squad

Starting XI

GK

RB  -  CB  -  CB  -  LB

RM  -  CM  -  CM  -  LM

ST  -  ST

 

LCM and one of the ST position might change this season. Even one of the CB positions, if Simone Misso (JR13b) starts to grow fast!

Geez, this year's edition of Malta madness is progressing at a crazy rate, superb work in Europe!

What kind of tactics are you using, I see you're setting up in a 4-4-2 but this seems wildly effective. I'm gonna guess it's a classic attacking setup with 2 out-and-out wingers?

Thank you!

 

I don't know if things have changed after the update, but this is the one I have been using. I usually change a bit when playing against big teams.

Um, wow. In a way it matches what I expected (how attacking it is), in another really it really really doesn't (how it uses inverted wingers and underlaps instead of wingers). Interesting!

Ta' Xbiex in Europe 2030/2031

This is the year we're going in to Champions League group stages, I can feel it!

64d7VOy.png

p2az8g7.png

Started off easy, with a draw against FK Zeta Golubovci from Montenegro. And after two games we dominated (we should seriously have won the second game with 5 goals!) we were through to next round.

 

Next up, Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar from Iceland.

4u7Unjl.png

uVrusWn.png

We had no problems in the first game, and won 4-0. We lost the second one, but I was not nervous in that game. Even though they could have gone 2-0 up after only 12 minutes.

 

Next up, Qarabağ FK Ağdam from Azerbaijan.

4JAMor9.png

5VPZpVv.png

The first game was a pretty close one. But we smashed them in the second game, and won 7-1 on aggregate.

 

The last team we were facing for a place in CL group stages this year was Celtic.

xM8o6cy.png

Rv2D9U3.png

And we did it! For the first time we are in the Champions League group stages!

We were leading 4-1 in the first game until the 86th minute, and then we conceded two quick goals. I was a bit angry, but felt like we could do it. The second game we maybe should have finished earlier, but at least we did it in the end!

 

8tpjjs1.png  W9UoK2G.png

A very hard group! The only hope for a point is against Beşiktaş A.Ş. But, you never know, we might cause an upset!

It is a bit weird to be honest. I have used it all the way from the start of this years FM. The only big changes I have done is at the CMs. And I only use overload in the league games :)

One of these things, is not like the others...and obviously I am referring to Molde.

Great job so far.  I have been working on a youth-only save in Malta on FM16, and it is an absolute slog.

Molde actually finished third in their group, ahead of Ajax :p The norwegian league has improved a lot this save, and is currently placed 8th in the reputation list :)

Thank you! This has been a lot easier this year than last year because of how easy it is to upgrade the youth recruitment and coaching.

Every second year it seems like Hibernians wants to fight us all the way! We usually do better after the half way point though, as we usually do not play European football.

 

Champions League

iIAMhdt.png

4evbONN.png17nHO5j.png

Well... It's not THAT bad is it? We actually got a point!

It may look like some of the games were tight, but no, we should have lost them with a bigger margin!

At least we broke some records. Not all good though!

 

National Team

But, the national team did well! A draw against Faroe Islands is not that good, but we still won the group.

 

And here are the groups for the European Championship Qualifying.

Youth Intake 2031

 

p6gmaIZ.png

As I said in an earlier post, I really want (need) a better RB. And I got a RB, he might not go straight in to the first eleven, but in a couple of years, I hope he is ready. And that is the only usable player from this years intake.

ZDkmjae.pngPFl1qP0.png

Another one. We lost one game this season. It came a bit  out of the blue to be honest, and I used our best eleven. But, we did only concede 5 goals in the second half of the season, so I'm happy with that.

 

O0jX4Tx.png

And we add another FA Trophy to our growing collection of trophies.

Matteo Porcelli will be an amazing player for us. I am 100% certain...

****ing hell, you're the terror of the Maltese league by now, almost every match is a 5-0 win. :lol:

Great job in the CL, more than respectable performance.

And that group for the national team is surprisingly easy, I think to qualify is asking for way too much, but maybe you can finish ahead of a couple of teams there...

I believe we are every Maltese teams worst nightmare :p

I'm very happy with the Juventus result at least! The other games might look tight, but we got hammered all the way, and I thank our GK for not conceding more goals!

I got very surprised with that group as well!

Ta' Xbiex in Europe 2031/2032

Could we go in to Champions Leauge group stages two years in a row?!

 

First up, Crusaders from Northern Ireland!

wHSB4tg.png

EuB973U.png

Easy. Next!

 

HJK from Finland!

nFq12Hs.png

QlsUNgt.png

No problems whatsoever in these games.

 

Next up, Legia Warzawa, from Poland!

orcoeYO.png

PL8bIlr.png

After a very close first game with big chances both ways, we managed to win the second one 1-0.

 

And finally, for  place in group stages we got Celtic. It's the third time we are facing them in these qualification stages!

kfTAzS8.png

THH5KSX.png

Maaan, that was way to close! But we did, for the second time in a row we're in the CL Group stages!

 

iRMxKg7.png

I think this group is "easier" than last year. Still very hard though, as every group is. The main goals is to get more points than last year.

The last team is Anderlecht.

 

Other teams from Malta in Europe.

Hibernians

MxnKetj.png

 

Floriana

If the teams from Malta does not get better the next few years, I might add another manager to one the bottom teams and do the same thing as I did with Ta' Xbiex.

It can't get much better than this! And it looks like there is a new challenger for the second place!

 

Champions League

YPwTWCg.pngC0qn5Xz.png

As the earlier post showed, we really started the group stage bad with a 4-9 loss against Monaco. But we got our revenge, and beat them 1-0 in the home game. Not only that, we beat Lazio in our home game as well! That means we're through to the Europa League knock out stages!

Some big clubs in the first round!

 

National Team

vKyLPUJ.png5qYo3Br.png

I am very happy with this! I knew we would have trouble against Wales and Switzerland. I also thought Iceland should beat us, but it turns out the quality of the Icelandic national team really has declined.

 

So, after all these games I was prepared to resign, and just focus on Ta' Xbiex. I just wanted to wait another week, and then I got this message.

So, I guess I'm staying for a few more months :p

Wait, SEVENTY FIVE goals against for Andorra? Holy cow poo, that's a ridiculous amount even for San Marino standards...

And long live the new Nations League where all four levels will send a team to the Euros! If you beat Cyprus, you'll have to beat another team as well to get there, but you got a great chance to qualify for the tournament!

You're right. It was not a good year, even for them! :p I'm a little bit annoyed that their only goals was against us!

Currently placed 184th in the world. Best position was in 2030, when they were all the way up to 161th!

They even have a fairly decent striker!

From 2017 to the current year, they have won 2-1 vs Malta, four games vs Gibraltar (two friendlies) 2-0, 2-1, 6-1 and 3-0.  3-0 vs Liechtenstein (friendly), 5-1 vs Faroe islands, 2-0 vs Andorra, and their perhaps best win, 1-0 vs Latvia! And some drawn games, 2-2 vs Kazakhstan, 0-0 vs Malta, 0-0 vs Andorra (friendly), 0-0 Luxembourg (friendly), 1-1 vs Azerbaijan, 1-1 vs Montenegro and 2-2 vs Lithuania!

European Championship Qualifying Playoff Semi Final (That's way too long...)

 

We faced Cyprus away in the Semi Final, a team that we beat 4-0, and lost 2-0 againt in the Group Stages.

KD8Fjyg.png

And we won the game! It was very close, but Johann Formosa saved almost everything!

 

For the most important game in Maltese football history, we could face on of these teams:

Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Romania, Czech Republic, Belarus, Serbia and Northern Ireland.

The team I wanted was Belarus, as they were the only team that had a worse world ranking than Malta.

Now, who did we get?!

 

79eAcKL.png

Northern Ireland, here we come!

Going in to this game, N. Ireland was 77th on the world rank, and Malta was 88th!

 

 

The starting XI.

CRttuGW.png

Almost, the best possible XI Malta can start with. Glenn Vella, usually starts up top with Nicholas Bartolo, but got an injury the week before...

 

Result in Spoiler

Spoiler

 

I tried to upload the highlights to YT, but my computer does not want to...

j2dHjA1.png

F*** me, we did it!

We're actually going to the European Championship!

Northern Irelands absolute best striker got an injury after only 8 minutes, and that may have helped us a bit.

They did not really have a chance, and their first goals was a crap pass from Etienne Micallef that was meant for our GK, but got snapped up.
