Another cup win to take it to 3 cups and 2 titles in total :D

This is how our results have gone so far. We're still unbeaten in the league and now just two games off the 49 game record set by Malmo between 1949 and 1951!!!

I'm a little bit confused. We're playing in a stadium in CL 3rd qualifier that supposedly won't be built for another two years :idiot:

Two games away from CL football. Dinamo will be tough.

Looking like you'll have a successful league season. Good luck in Europe too.

That stadium thing? Maybe they got in some extra help to build it :)

Cheers, hoping we can get past Dinamo to the CL groups, anything else is a bonus.

Regarding the stadium, I can only assume that Sweden are hosting a future Euro/WC and the game is creating some new stadiums for it. Cant see a way of finding out though. At the moment we're playing CL qualifiers on a construction site :lol:

Great first leg result helped by a missed Dinamo penalty!

Youth Intake 2027

A decent intake with two players, both strikers, who have the potential to go far.

Dawood is physically brilliant and has the base attributes for a goalscoring striker - just not a grafting type.

Esmaeil is an ethnic Iranian, could he be our Persian Prince?

Hoffenheim are the current Europa League holders so can't judge them as a weaker side, but I reckon we could pick up a result or two here.

I've experienced this multiple times. The good thing is that they can still perform, it's just that, you wonder what could have been.

I hope he ends up top class and PSG sell him for £100m, least then I'd get a pay out on that 40% profit clause...

What are your finances looking like now? I found that when I got to a certain level of cash in the bank, the board were less likely to sell my best young players. 

What are your Philosophies? I also found that if I could keep "Develop Players using the club's Youth system" as an agreed philosophy, then again, the board were less likely to flog the starkets from under me, (but older players were fair game).

but I want to highlight this guy:

Olle's at the Wheel

He came in as a nothing prospect, so much so he wasn't even picked as a player to highlight. He broke into the first team in the 2023 season after loans in the 4th tier in 2021 and 2022, mainly coming off the bench. He started 2024 as first choice, but lost his spot to Grahn. When Grahn was snapped up by PSG, Olle Lindh became first choice again and he's been superb. Technically he's not great at all, with his finishing his only attribute in double figures. But he's a quick, hard-working team-player who just seems to know where the net is.

Well done. :applause:

A lot of people in your position wouldn't even have signed him.

Yeah he will still be good, just doubt he'll improve much more now. Had a bid of £9m (inc. clauses) just before which I would take now...

HOYD recommended offering him a youth contract and he was seconds away from not getting a pro-contract and having his contract run down to be honest. Luckily kept him on and the rest is history!

They're looking good as per below, obviously you can see where each year we've improved the facilities. Hopefully now with regular CL money we will no longer have issues with chairmen. Every two years we have elections and the first one, Tony Eriksson, has just left. I always sneak in 'develop youth' and get rid of others they impose.

Oh and here's Grahn now, he's looking the real deal:

A tougher draw than we'd have liked and I'm not sure how we're rich and they're modest when their top earner is on £80k pw, more that double our squad :idiot:

After losing his professionalism after off-field events I thought it was time to give in to the offers. It could have been different Hampus.

Great double performance against Benfica where we were the dominant side. We now face the tricky, but not impossible, Napoli!

Outstanding work here, fella. I really enjoy FM in that part of the world, but I don't have the self control for youth saves. 

Best of luck in the return leg.
