Pre-Season 2039 + Some Players

pre-season-tv-money

pre-season-prediction

S8wET24.png

A few noteworthy sales - Aguado has long been a mainstay on central midfield but with some good talents coming up I decided to go for Athletic's offer. 

I also decided to sell Asensio, record holder of most apps. In his thirties, no longer near the required level. 

Oncina was an AMR who never really made the first team.

pre-season

Not too many games, also because the supercup comes quickly. 

Some first team players I've not shown in a while/at all, plus some talents nearing the matchday squad:

pre-season-Ruiz

pre-season-Posadas

pre-season-Cuadrado

pre-season-Gelma

pre-season-Olivares

pre-season-Conde

pre-season-Hassouni

October 2039

october

Generally a strong month after we got back to scoring goals, although the loss against Sevilla might be a painful one in the long run.

october-league-table

I'm not worrying too much yet, as it's highly unlikely Athletic will keep this up and then we're only a few points behind whoever's taking up the lead.

November 2039

november

Not a good month really. Dropping too much points both in the league and in the CL. We had already done the job in the cup so we're through in that at least.

november-league-table

Pep's Celta or Barca are looking the strongest, but you never know. Atlético is also back at the front after some mediocre seasons for them. Making it harder for us, especially as we seem to go through a weaker season.

A little bit better, as we scored some decent points.

december-league-table

It is a close fight this year between six sides although Athletic surely seems to drop away further still.

december-CL-group

Just did enough. Although, on the other hand, it would've been interesting to see if we could've gone for an EL win, as I think this season a CL is going to be nigh impossible.

Should at least go through here.

January 2040

january

A much stronger month. Four important league wins, including in the city derby against Barca. Too bad we're out of the cup.

january-league-table

Even made a huge leap to first, but Barcelona and Atlético have a game in hand and can overtake.

january-motm

january-transfers

Decided to sell Fernandez as the CM position is stacked and his technicals are really poor. Of course a little risk as he could grow into them. We'll see, I guess.

january-offer

Another offer for Carles... 

Minimum fee is now 178M. Pay it or leave me alone.

Continuing to do pretty well. Through in the CL, and good points in the league. Including a win over Pep's Celta..

february-sacking

Which will have contributed to this!! 

Kind of shocking as he has done pretty well with them. 

I guess their tycoon doesn't take kindly to failure.

february-league-table

Okay, 5 points behind Barca. If they keep up their current form that's going to be really difficult. We could very well drop off against Numancia and Atlético.

March 2040 + Youth Intake

march

Ouch, this is going to hurt us.

march-league-table

A fourth consecutive title is pretty much impossible now.

CL Draw was this month, and not great to face Barcelona twice more. But look at this! The quarter finalists are 4 German teams and 4 Spanish teams...

Meh...

Youth Intake

march-youth-intake

Can't be fantastic every year. Two mediocre Dutch players and another terrible Andorran.

march-yp22a

It seems quite impossible to get a striker prospect who is taller than 180cm and can jump.

march-yp22b

Good attacking attributes.

march-yp22c

180cm!

Not going to be it.

We're doing very well now, but it's just too late for the title. At least we are through to the semi final of the CL, our best ever run. And we still have a shot, need to beat Celta in their stadium.

Second place should be ours.

Escoruela is still at Lokomotiv Moscow and finished third two years in a row. He is not scoring a ton of goals but decent average ratings.

What an amazing run in Sant Andreu, MarcxD! It's been a while that I have read your updates so long that you have started making San Andreu great in Spanish football, and eventually world football! Now, I hope that the World Cup will be a great chance to show who the best Barcelona team is.:applause:

As a lover of Spanish saves (so far!), I want to see the screenshots of the following:

1.) Club rosters of Top teams in La Liga (Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Celta and Las Palmas) and Catalan teams such as Espanyol, Numancia, Terassa, Balaguer and F.C. Andorra.

2.) NT rosters of the neighboring nations such as Portugal, Andorra, France, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.

3.) Progress in my home country (Philippines) including its NT roster and best players so far in 2041. Hopefully, Sant Andreu will lure Ceres in your save soon!:D

I hope that you'll get another achievement in Sant Andreu and Spain for another season. Good luck in 2041! You earn the best in Barcelona!:)

That's a lot of screen shots you want to see, a bit much mate. It's not my day job! I also don't really see the point. The Philippines aren't loaded so that won't give you much, and TBH why would all those squads be of interest? They'll just be newgens all around.

But to throw you a bone here are the squads for Barca and Real Madrid.

Ouch, very bad in the league with two losses in a row. Can't be having that. At least we are looking good to make the cup final.

Really need to score points more consistently soon or we might even drop out of the european qualification spots.

Two players leaving on loan. Veteran Fontas was barely playing so might as well get some money.

Another two losses in the league against top teams, but we did manage to get three straight wins afterwards so hopefully we are back on the right track for the final three months of the season. Made it to the cup final where we'll be playing Numancia and set to make the next round of the CL if we beat Dortmund at home.

february-league-table

10 points behind Barca, the title is far away. Top 4 is the very minimum goal though, if we don't reach that that would be very disappointing.

Season Review 2040-2041

post-season-season-review

The worst season in the league of the last couple of years probably, and Barcelona once again was too strong for us. But another CL win makes up for that alright.

post-season-toty

post-season-topscorer

Josep Lluis who was on loan at Palmas scored more than Carles did for us and almost won the topscorer award. With Ferran Cos being unhappy I'll either sell Cos or loan Lluis/Cos out for a big loan fee.

post-season-moty

Griezmann!?!

post-season-gkoty

post-season-squad

post-season-best-eleven

post-season-best-eleven-overall

Interesting to see that Carles has almost the exact same goal-scoring record as Josep Ballesté, at quite a different level of football of course.

post-season-table

The all-time records are in danger of being broken, with Jaume Ruiz nearing Asensio and Carles needing one or likely two more years to break Escoruela's record.

Well, I like their rosters though because they're very strong, even Sant Andreu lost Pep (not the real-life head coach) to Barca. On the other hand, I really love the repeat in the Champions League. Even though you should have been lucky to get two more silverwares, but I'm very proud of you, MarcX!:applause::D

Thank you, theoretically I could do that at any time of course. But for now I prefer to only pick the players that are among the best in their positions.

An injury for Carmelo Ruiz means only 5 of my players are in the squad this time.

Nations League

june-1

june-2

june-3

A busy international summer started with the nations league finals, which brought me a second international trophy with Spain. We did need extra time in both games though.

Confederations Cup

confed-1

We started with the toughest game of the group and with a win in the pocket we are pretty much sure of finishing first in our group.

confed-2

confed-3

confed-groups

USA first, then whoever is stronger between the Germans and the Argentinians.

confed-4

A comfortable win in the semi final, even if we had to play 30 minutes with ten men.

confed-5

We started and finished the tournament with a game against the Argentinians and once again we managed to come out on top in the end. Needed extra time, and the game was far from a classic. 

But two international trophies in more or less a month time, who can complain.

Pre-season was spent in South Korea, with quite the (not so) gradual build-up in results...

Premier League spend is ridiculous, but showing this to show tycoon-owned Celta, already for many years spending money have really gone overboard this time.
