[FM19] Youth Only in Catalonia with Sant Andreu

Recommended Posts

April 2031

april

As good results as you would expect, outside of the Numancia game. 

april-league-table

With the cup final being played between Real Sociedad and Real Madrid I would think the 7th gets EL football as well so if we can hold on to that position...

Strong performance in the end, including a shock draw against title winners Barcelona!

may-league-table

And, yeah, in the end it was just enough to qualify for the Europa League next season! Based on results against Villarreal, as they do have a better goal difference..

may-qualification

may-u19-win

The u-19s also have a second straight title win! No double this time around. They also got through to the first knock-out round of the youth league.

Season Review 2030-2031

post-season-season-review

A really strong season with some outlandish results, I've also seen some players developing very well and I am excited to see some of the younger talents grow.

The real star of the year obviously was Escoruela.

My first personal award.

Saying goodbye to Toni Esteve, Juan Parra and Rayco Amador.

Pre-Season + August 2031

pre-season-tv-money

pre-season-goalscorer-odds

Found this quite remarkable. We are still predicted to finish last, and of course he was topscorer in the previous season but that he has the highest odds to do it again.. Impressive.

pre-season-transfers1

pre-season-transfers2

No transfers of note. Some of my talents have been the subject of offers from Athletic, Valencia, Sociedad and clubs like that. But I said no to all, and I have learned my lesson from previous seasons and offer full time contracts as soon as I can. 

In Spain a minimum release fee clause is obligatory in all contracts, so I just make sure that those are nice and high.

pre-season-august

We have done well in the Europa League qualifiers, beating pretty decent sides to get to the group phase. 

Also started the league with a win but unsurprisingly Barcelona is still a step too far.

august-league-table

august-EL-draw

This seems like a Champions League group! Things must have changed, Man City in the Europa League...

Perhaps because of this...

But they still have some decent players..

Through in the cup and a relatively kind draw against Girona in the 5th round. Should be able to go through. Did very well in the league once more, equally so in the europa league...

it's all good news for now.

Honestly stunned by this, can't imagine we'll stay up this high but qualification for europe should be very realistic.

A month of ups and downs, as it's definitely disappointing to not go through in the cup and the results against Leganes and Villarreal especially are a bit of a shame when you look at their position on the table. On the other hand, Numancia is very high up (it is a bit of a strange season!) so beating them is great.

january-league-table

Anyway, we are still in third with all that and a nice little gap remains to the sides in 5th and below.

Barcelona on course to get a fourth straight La Liga win.

Potentially the best intake so far, at least with regards to the best players. They look very interesting indeed. Very happy to see some striker talent. Still waiting for that defensive midfielder though.

Close games against Ajax but the quarter final is the end to our first European adventure... some important wins in the league this month though.

So with 3 more more games pretty much secure of european football, just remains to be seen what kind.

Well, in the end neither us or Sociedad qualified for the Champions League, but Numancia.... They beat us on the final matchday to get that position so it is deserved. Peculiar though!

In the end 6th is still qualification for Europa League, and while it may be a bit disappointing after our insane first half of the season, it's another step up.

Season Review 2031-2032

post-season-season-review

Insane start to the season, a bit inconsistent after the winter with my small and young squad not quite capable of playing that many games. 

Still, another year of European qualification and one position better, building the club and developing players.

We did amazingly in Europe any way. Coincidentally the Ajax team we lost to won the trophy.

post-season-moty

post-season-toty

post-season-award

post-season-topscorer

Well, he didn't win the overall topscorer award but he was the Spaniard with most goals. And best young player of the year. 

A bit surprising to see almost the entire first XI of the season being made up of Real Madrid players as Barcelona almost won the title.

post-season-squad

60 games for Joan! Sadly for him it's looking like next season he won't be playing much at all as a younger goalkeeper on loan in the Segunda has developed so quickly that he is now seen as quite a bit better.

Gerard and Fran Recio perhaps count for the most stunning developments for players here.

Wages going up every year but well we're nowhere near the wage budgets and we're still spending peanuts compared to the rest in the league.

We say goodbye to Ballesté, still the record topscorer at the club.

pre-season

Very comfortable performance in pre-season especially the opening game! No goals conceded.

pre-season-job-offer

While of course I could play Sant Andreu players in the NT I'm not interested for now.

pre-season-EL-draw

A much kinder group than last year it seems like. Interesting to see Liverpool and Man City now both in the EL group stages.

Thanks man. Challenging for fourth is going to be the next big target for sure. I think the big 3 of Atlético, Real Madrid and Barcelona are going to be a step too far for a while.

Numancia also did better than me last year. They had a takeover in 2031, after which they made a jump forward for sure. But it was a consortium takeover and not a tycoon.

This is their manager:

Escoruela doesn't seem like developing much further, which is a shame, but of course as long as he keeps scoring more than 30 goals a season I can't complain. A lot of the others in the first team selection are still young and are not at their peak yet, though.

Thanks mate! I have high hopes for some of the players coming up now.

Not 100% but I think I'm using one from the Steam Workshop, "spain updated 19.3.0"

Look at that, we are not predicted to finish in the relegation spots anymore!

pre-season-tv-money

pre-season-transfers-1

Two transfers over a million - Joel a longtime servant but no longer good enough, while Pulido is still a young AMR but I don't think there's much more than pace there so that fee seemed pretty good for a player I never saw making it long-term.

Did what we had to do in pre-season...

Not particularly ideal to play Barcelona and then three straight games against Atlético. And we lost all of them. Oh well. Happy that we were at least able to bounce back and get three straight wins in the league, including an important one against Valencia.

january-league-table

Very much in the fight for 4th still.

january-transfers

Some more outgoing. Ferran Cos is a striker that could be very good but he needs some playing time and is much too good for the u19 level but not quite good enough to bench Escoruela regularly.

Vicente Mir is an AML, about second or third best right now but with younger players breathing in his neck I decided to accept the Numancia offer. Not exactly the club I'd pick, but I doubt he'll become a world beater anyway.

Season Review 2033-2034

In the first half of the season it seemed like there was an opportunity to grab fourth place, but we were too inconsistent and honestly out of form for too much of the second half. 

post-season-moty

post-season-talent-oty

post-season-topscorer-2

Joaquin Martin in midfield has been a revelation. Some new talents joining the first team squad, perhaps finally allowing me to get a good bit of rotation going.

post-season-best-eleven

post-season-best-eleven-overall

post-season-table

Maxed out facilities after sixteen seasons, and there are two new all-time record holders.

Asensio with the apps and Escoruela with goals. While Asensio is now third-choice central defender he will likely still play quite a few matches next season at least, and who knows after that. Escoruela shows no signs of stopping, although his development certainly seems to have stalled and there are some prospects coming up.
