[FM20] Ta' Xbiex SC - Youth Only Malta vol.2

Recommended Posts

4dAQkj4.png

 

Hello everyone!

Some of you might remember me, or maybe you remember the save I had on the 2018 version of FM.

I took charge of a tiny team from Malta called Ta' Xbiex SC, and tried to get them to the top of the world. (Spoiler: I failed).

I think the last try was quite succesfull, and I hope I can at least do as well as I did then.

After one year away from FM, I'm back at it again with this save. And again it's Ta' Xbiex SC that's the team, as I really liked them the last time I tried this!

I'm adding one thing to this save I did not have the last time, and that is that I'm allowing myself to sign one, just ONE, player each season. The signing has to be 21 years old or younger, but does not have to be from Malta.

Enough of that, on to the facilities, the manager and the players!

We are still sharing our home-ground with St. Andrews FC.

I'm sorry, but I have a love for the more unusual nationalities! But as you can see, absolutely everything can be improved!

Squad

Our best CB is on loan at a team in the top league. I will try to recall him.

 

Key Players

ffff9aba2c50cccd8321d0f976b8140c.png

Our best player in terms of CA plays in a position that I don't really plan on using, so I have to retrain him.

31a242319dc30737f37e61b6f09c4fdc.png

On loan from Melita, and will be leaving us after the season.

This guy was one of my key players at the start of the last save, and he is still with Ta' Xbiex!

 

Youth Team

As per usual, this is what this look like at the start of the save.

74e351e4df3eacbc0361cddcb0e7ed06.png

Our best prospect at the moment.

 

One thing that seems to be new this year is that the fourth tier in Malta now has two groups. The winners go straight up, but the second placed teams has to battle it out between them!

fe77a0fd1bbbc06344e09dea3aded392.png

 

3ae2e94d69de1c24be008c18489ff1f9.png

We're considered to be the 24th worst team at the moment. I hope we can change that!

And that's it for now!

I hope you will enjoy this! If you want something added, or other things, just mention it and I will see what I can do!

Pre Season 2019/2020

cbf0e1e9b655aa6bbb55dd2bd86fef0f.png

Not a very good pre season in terms of results. The only win was against our U21 team.

 

83e515beb28af25af7bf980dc8f22bbc.png

Hey, at least 10 people wants to see us play.

 

As I said in the OP, I can sign one player each year, but they have to be 21 years old or younger.

I really needed a keeper, as the best keeper we had was a 17 year old Latvian that was not good enough.

 

1a83855b8099007ad307bb434da041f9.png

Here's our new GK. He is one out of six keepers available to me under the age of 22, and I'm really happy with this signing!

 

We also had our first official game, against Zebbug Rovers in the Cup. I tossed Karl Agius (YP00c) straight in to the CM position, and he answered with this goal

We're doing way better than I expected, and at the halfway point of the season we're sitting 3rd. Only one point behind the second place. First place is out of reach already.

We got to the second round of the cup, and I'm happy with that. We got knocked out by a team that got relegated from the top tier last season.

 

Player of the season so far has to be Donovan Micallef. From the CM position he has 7 goals and 1 assist in the league.

Thank you! I hope I can make this save even better, but it will be tough! :)

Youth Intake 2020

The first youth intake of this save, and I do not have high hopes. As per usual there will be a lot of 5* PA players in the first intake.

A few days before this date I realised we had no HoYD... My mistake...

08f5d18e6496e184e741ec8ba30e0483.png

I was right though, every single player has 5* PA. No one really stand out potential wise, but we get a player from Romania!

 

Top three CA

End of the 2019/2020 Season

Overall I am pretty happy with our first season, but we're conceding way to many goals! If we could keep a clean sheet sometimes we would have been higher on this table at the end of the season. Only two clean sheets over the course of the whole season is just bad. On the other side of the field we're doing okay.

Take a look at the ratings for the defenders here and you can see why we struggled with keeping the goals out...

We're rated even lower that last year. We lost a few players after the season, so I'm guessing that's the reason.

d148d7aab234eed5fa798ba83dc7ca65.png

I said after last season that we had to do better in defense. If this is something to go by, we will struggle!

e34942e3f647771aa5e164b691291ad9.png

 

And the last key player is also my signing of this season. I wanted a new CB, but everyone availabe was just as bad as the ones I have. So what's the second best option after a CB? Yes, a striker!

3ed2097e96a5e2d49a262cfb6187c1e8.png

I like the look of him. I hope the speed and finishing can be a good weapon at this level.

 

YP to look for.

9e1abd3fa2fe0e09ea4af12db073201b.png

Our best LB is also our best CB, and we need him in that position, so this season Manea will most likely play in a lot of games at the LB position.

0db8d72d28d2b4d8130c289ec6989301.png

At the halfway point we're sitting second in the table, a position I am very happy with. We don't concede as many goals as we did last year, and that is the main reason we're this high. Hopefully we can keep this up. I just lost my best CM to injury however, and that is a position that I struggle with at the moment.

 

Best player so far has to be our new striker Josepg Zammit. He is very important for us up top!

I said that I struggled in the CM position, maybe this is what I need?

 

I also got my first job interview offer. I declined of course.

A pretty good youth intake this year, as we get a 4* CA player! I would have liked him to be a CM, but this will have to do!

 

32c3d55cdda3dd290879734a51e10032.png

I never really notice the player traits, but "Dwells On Ball" should fit into the way we play.

This guy actually looks like better prospect in my opinion.

I certainly did not expect this at the start of the season. We actually won promotion on the second try! We scored scored 50 goals this season, the same amount as last year, but we conceded 12 goals less. I do not understand how the play offs work to be honest. We played against a team from the league above us, and had to beat them to get promoted, and we did that, but how does the game against Mtarfa come in? They did not play a game against a team from the league above, but still faced us in the play-off. If they beat us, would they have gone up? Because after we beat Xghajra Tornadoes FC, I got a message that we were promoted... 

One other thing to notice, the team that won Group B finished rock bottom last season!

 

 

9fe4f1cbcbf4071db4e5430354ac6469.png

As I predicted before the season, Alexandru Manea (YP01a) got a lot of games, even though he did not play that well... He had 52% pass accuracy over the course of the season!

I had a lot of players I tried to sign this season, but everyone wanted 10 times more than I could afford, so I ended up with this guy. He was not my first choice, but he's still our best player!

 

Here is the shortlist for the others I tried to sign.

An unbeaten first half of the season in the league! Who would have thought that?! But, to be honest, we have very lucky in at least three games, and should maybe have lost a couple of them. But I don't care, as we are at the top of the table!

 

Joseph Zammit, one of the players I highlighted as a key player got injured a couple of days before the first game, and I decided to go for Matthew Spitteri up top, and he made it hard for me to leave him out of the starting XI after that game. And he has continued to impress. 12 games and 9 goals!

We are deep in the red in the finance side of things, so I havent even bothered to ask for a youth coaching upgrade. But just for fun I thought I would give it a go.

That Lower Division with two groups isn't like that in real life, looks like the guy who made this database has moved the Gozo league teams in with the Maltese teams!

Interesting that you can attract non Maltese players already, i remember on my previous Maltese saves i could only sign players based in Malta for a long time

Ahh, so that is why it's like that. I remembered that it was two league systems in Malta from my first save!

I have noticed that as well. In the last 4-5 Football Manager games there was no way to sign players from other countries on part-time deals. But this year some players want to sign.

A very nice youth intake this year, with a 5* CA player. Too bad he is a DM, a position that I don't use. Same for the second best, he is a AMR. But both of them will be given new positions!

Other than that, it seems like there's an overall rise in quality this year.

 

2edfac8f2dc7c49b8f1cfa91671a7e3d.png

He's already pretty good in the CM position. But he'll get even better!

I had of course hoped we could achieve an unlikely promotion at the start of the season, but I did not think we would end up with it! We had a very bad second half of the season, and lost the first place, but we manged to finish second at least. After not losing a single game in the first half of the season we ended up just winning 5 out of 12 of the remaining games!

But we were not the only team that had a good season, as the team that joined us in the promotion last year join us this year as well!

Our best youth player two years ago. Important in central midfield.

 

Another year, another key signing. This time I got what I wanted, a central defender. This guy has been without a club since last year. I tried to sign him last year as well, but he wanted more than I could offer. I guess one year on the sidelines gave him something to think about.

I simulated a game to 2089 before I started to play to see if there were any bugs or anything like that. And you're right, I have to catch up quickly!

Well. This is unexpected. We're currently sitting fourth in the table, just three points from the top! We have outscored everyone, and that is the main reason we're at this spot. On the other side of the field, we're conceding way to many goals, but if we continue to score this many goals, thats all good! And we're still in the Cup as well!

 

PoTS so far has to be Karl Buckler.

I forgot to take a picture of all the players togesther, but it was basically a normal youth intake at this level, with every single player being a 5* PA.

 

Here is the three best according to CA.

Well, that was easier than I thought it would be. We're promoted as champions, and will play our next season in the Premier League! It was very close finish, and it was down to the last game of the season to see who would gain promotion! We had to beat Vittoriosa Stars FC (a team we crushed 7-1 earlier in the season), and Naxxar Lions and Gharghur FC had to draw. And guess what happened? Exactly how I needed it to go! So, next year we're going up against the big boys! One thing to notice, is that Gharghur FC, a team that has joined us in the two last promotions nearly did it yet again! Even Zabbar, that got promoted last season was with us all the way in. And could even have won the league, but they lost 7 out of their last 9 games. Another thing, we had 48 points at the end of the season. That would place us around 4-5 any other year.

We also had our best Cup run so far in the save, and even had our best game so far with 4-0 trashing of Hibernians! This is also the reason our finances are looking good at the moment.

Two-three really bad games drags the Avg rating down for this guy. He has been a very important part of the success in his first season at the club.

I think my two central midfielders were the main reason we achieved promotion last year, as they were brilliant!

I decided to try to find a new player in the defence, and I found an LB that I immediately tried to sign.

He is also the first player I've signed from another club.

 

And here's a list over other potential players I tried to sign.

  Just another quick update. We just played Valletta, the team to beat in Malta.

We deserved at least one point here...

At the midway point of the season we're sitting as number five on the table. A good place to be at the moment, and we're closer to the top than the bottom! We started the season brilliantly, with four big wins in five first games. After than we had a bit of a bad run, but overall I'm happy.

We also got knocked out of the cup early. By a team in the league we below us...

 

PoTS so far has to be Josepg Zammit. The second signing I made at the club has been with us from fourth tier, but this is the year he has been the best so far!

Youth Intake 2024

22274b0c2689834e9df64c096030337b.png

A better intake than last year. The best player we get this is a centerback, and he will probably go straight in to the starting eleven once we get a chance to register him.

 

Top three according to CA

05c45d8e4d5c8ebba11eec58ade94b93.png

He is very very slow... Hopefully he can grow a bit there.

0dadd9a08ecf2acb74d0fc64f57f2f08.png

Once this guy gets used to the left mildfielder position, he will probably be our number one on that side.

fc0f41772d69837633ef9b84b8b8ba0c.png

He does not look like anything special to me.

The first year as a Premier League team is over, and all in all I'm happy. We finished as number seven, but we were closer to the bottom than the top.  A really horrible December month made us end the season with a negative goal difference, and that is the main focus before the next season. The two first games this year were also the best ones, and we should have beaten Valletta.

 

We got 104K for the 7th place. And that really helps with the finances!

The fans voted Karl Buckler as player of the season, and this year I have to agree. Joseph Zammit started the season great, but was really bad the second half.

Pre Season 2024/2025

bba8f9c817e36f67c30fa3d542056ba3.png

So, the second season in the top league. Will we suffer from the famous "second season syndrome", where everything goes badly, or will we maybe push for a place in European football? Most likely the first option according to the bookmakers. The team that's predicted to place just above has done almost the same journey. They have been promoted three times in the last five seasons!

He had a decent first season, but I feel he can do better.

Sean Grech has grown into a very good player for us.

68afabaf127aacc692c62b3d73d0f8ae.png

Same with this guy, and in the middle they form a good partnership.

 

So, my signing of the season. I thought it was time to get a new GK. And that is just what I did. But I made a mistake, as he had not turned 18 yet, and Kazakh players can't leave their country until they are 18. He turns 18 one month, and joins us, after the registration window has closed, and therefore he can't play before the second half of the season. And that is too bad, cause he look really good.

It's been a very similar season this year. Last year we had 21 points at the halfway point, now we have 24. We're scoring less goals, but we're also conceding less.

We got knocked out of the cup by Floriana.

The fact that almost every player we get has 5* potential, even after I have signed players with 5* CA, is a bit weird to be honest.

Our best player CA wise. Should perform better that he does to be honest.

0ab3c97014726fbeee7b51b570592c14.png

The second best GK in the league, only behind the Valletta keeper.

ce7cb1022428ac0d6494685608909e7a.png

If he can continue his goal scoring form from last year, and the players around him will perform better, we might actually have a chance at a Euro Cup spot.

 

This years signing is another LB, but I will retrain him as a RB. He's also our first full international player!

We end the season on an all-time high third place, and a place in EC2 next season! I don't know how the money is in the EC2, but it will surely be more than nothing! We had a very good second half of the season this year, and even though we still lost three games, we scored a lot of goals. The games we lost were very thight, and could have gone ways. Only one team scored more than us, and that was the league winner Valletta. We also conceded a lot less goals than the last two seasons, and even though our strikers arent the best in the league, my main transfer target next season is another defender.

In the cup we got knocked out by a team that finished rock bottom of the second tier... Horrible game.

Yet again I signed a player from Kazakhstan. I don't know why they have so many free agents availabe, but they all want to sign for me, and they also strengthen our team, so it's a no brainer really. I wanted another CB actually, but this guy is born two months earlier, so I could register him for the season.
