End of the 2035 Season

We ended the normal league in the second position. I would have been happy with that at the start of the season, as we performed badly in a few of the first games. But, after that bad run of games, I switched back to the 4-4-2 formation I used at the start of the save, and we started to play very good football. And if not for a HORRIBLE september month we would have been first going in to the champions playoff.

We had a real shot at winning the league this season, and would most likely have done so if not for the 0-1 loss against Atlantas (and september). But, we're very close at the moment, and next season could be ours!

But it was our year in the Lithuanian Cup, and we won it for a second time!

We had no problems in the final, and I even handed Almantas Cesnauskis (YP17a) his debut. He thanked me by scoring the third goal!

Another win for Aidas Baranauskas. He is so important in the central mid position.

Well, this went much better than expected! I was prepared for some really bad results, especially against Atletico Madrid and Monaco, but we managed to keep the games close all the way to the end. We should even have won the 3-3 game.

Zalgiris finished third as well.

Even if we got knocked out of the EC, we're still in the ECII.

I'm not happy with our friendlies this season.

The odds are getting better and better in our favour.

 

Best XI

GK

RB  -  CB  -  CB  -  LB

RM  -  CM  -  CM  -  LM

ST   -   ST

 

The only position I have a decent cover for is the CM spot. With this guy likely taking the starting place from Mantas Gasiunas soon.

He played a lot of games last season, but he was very inconsistent.

Gariunai In Europe 2035/36 pt.3

We finished third in our EC Group, and that meant we still had a chance in the ECII knockout stages.

The first team we faced there was Cercle Brugge from Belgium. A team that had very similar players to us.

fccd228e4fd30735a663891e63f41dea.png

cc33861be32e521d999ca48d0d778648.png

And it was two close games, but it end we were the team that won the tie! I even gave Almantas Cesnauskis (YP17a) a start in the second game, and he answered with a goal!

 

Next up, Trabzonspor A.Ş from Turkey.

d252ae87974c0173f53fe892636edc81.png

I thought we would have really big problems with this team. But even though we lost the second game (we should have won by the way), we had a very good first game, and that made us get to the next round.

 

Next we faced was Napoli! The hardest team we could get a this stage I think.

cbbd991b2b5ef01aebada12430b18159.png

f7d54f659d5e36bcae6697870e4e5834.png

Even though the first game ended in a draw we should have lost that by a much bigger margin! The second game ended 0-2, even if it was a bit closer game, and we got knocked out.

 

I noticed one thing in the first game against them. My best CB is 198cm tall (around 6'6 I think). And he was noticable smaller than their main striker, Adrian Gyllenberg.

e9daf8b17d44f2b1a2184481682ab530.png

He's a giant! He is one of, if not the biggest player I have seen in a FM game. Especially with that quality.

 

FK Zalgiris Vilnius had a very good run as well, and got as far as us in the knockout stages.

Good run. I like the idea of a competition like that allowing teams from smaller countries a bit of an European adventure rather than just being out after one or two qualifying rounds.

Almost perfect! This is by far the best season so far, and we're sitting first at the midway point of the season. There is only one point down to Atlantas however, and we have to keep this up if we want to stay in this position.

 

Tomas Stankevicius (YP14f) has been our best player without a doubt. Scoring 14 goals in 14 matches so far, and even added a few assists in there.

Youth Intake Preview

Looks like another great youth intake!

Hopefully the preview of the full backs is true, as that is the main problem of the team at the moment.

Second try at the Champions League, the first time we got knocked out of the third qual round. Could we do better this season?

First up was Brøndby IF from Denmark.

b8aea3b91126fb3b467b063034026828.png6bb08543cbb4816831d7456366899699.png

We had an incredible firs game, and should have scored more goals. The second game was a lot tighter, and in the end we lost that one. But it did not matter as we won the first game 4-1

 

Next up, Spartak Moscow!

e46fae08c89b39989d839436e02488ec.pngd42a8e6be01223be951d6c52be6abc3c.png

I have no idea how we won the first game to be honest. The first half was good on our part, but we got the absolutely smashed in the second half of the game, and we were lucky not to concede more than two goals. But still, a win is a win. The second game we were much better, and ended up winning the game 3-1!

 

That means we're through to the next round, and only two games from a Champions League group stages place!

The team we faced for that was S.S. Lazio.

e466cdde1c9ae7794fa68b18a1cb6e05.png9d2bed3d2b6a424dfe05365aef3017fa.png

And this was were it ended this season. We lost both games, but in the end it wasnt that bad in my opinion.

 

But even though we got knocked out of the Champions League, we have a place in the Europa League group stages.

fbd6f7c11bf4639bc43d00c077a12c39.png70465a71d4cff20f785666d95a48edae.png

We get a decent group, and the second place should be a possibility.

 

Other Lithuanian teams in Europe.

Because of the massive rise of the Lithuanian league, we now have a team in the CL group stages!

Atlantas

64b8f5c32ee82f657adb91c04d48e3e3.png

If they get a point from this group they should be happy.

Youth Intake 2036

7481ac5d0e9a3484a002bba06bbb5561.png

We get two very good talents at the CB position this youth intake, and one of the them is from Kazakhstan! But where is the fullbacks I was promised?

ba9a004cde4d1e193225ed8eb39055bc.png

Both of these players looks like decent talents, but in my opinion (YP18c) looks better.

You could retrain Ordabek as a rightback tbf, he doesn't seem to terrible for that.

That is my plan! But in the youth intake preview the first thing that is highlighted is the "healthy number of new full-backs", and we only got three. I know that it does not say that any of them would be good, but it gave me a bit of hope :P

This was an almost perfect season! Only three games lost in the normal league, and a massive lead going in to the champions playoff.

Atlantas was on our backs the entire first half of the season, but after they got a place in the CL group stages their form was horrible. Just take a look at this.

e61d3ac58bd6479b39baab9ae373846b.png

The first game of the champions playoff we had a bit of an injury crisis, and only had three players on the bench! But we still managed to win the league with 21 points more than the second place. That was our first league win, and hopefully there is lot more to come!

 

a167fd73d55c09138dd4d2defe4fe6d6.png

Not only did we win the league, but we won the Lithuanian Cup and the Supercup as well. Our first treble!

Aidas Baranauskas (YP12f) won the Fans PoTS, but in my opinion Tomas Stankevicius (YP14f) deserved to win it this year.

His main problem is his stability. Sometimes he goes three-four games without scoring a goal, the comes back with a bang and scores four in a single match!

The most surprising thing in this group is that Rostov ended last. I thought Craiova would be the worst team. Well, we lost one game against Rostov, and won both against Craiova.

 

With us finishing second in the group, we got through to the next round, there we face Molde.

That being said, it is a good offer!

A new record for the team, with seven players called up to the senior national team! The most surprising player is Darius Romanovs (YP11d), he's barely good enough to be on the bench for us at the moment.

After finishing second in the group stages of the Europa League we faced Molde in the first knockout round.

The first game was amazing, and we won it 6-1! I was a bit too confident going in to the second game, and changed a lot of players. It was not a good idea, and we lost the game 0-3. But we were still through to the next round.

 

There we faced Rennes.

5ae1ac73aa82e01ccc73dbd0a0683f8f.pngaed8dc784b561743c3a9c73e102c0b79.png

After two very close games, we were the team that won it all! Rennes might not be too happy with their strikers, as they had some golden opportunities to score more goals in both games.

 

In the Quarter Finals we faced Athletico Madrid.

The firs game was a lot closer than expected, and even though we lost it it could have gone both ways. The second game should have been a walk in the park for A. Madrid, but our GK was amazing, and finished the game with a 9.4 rating! It did not matter in the end tough, we still lost the tie. But I'm happy with our performance!

It has been a  very good start to the season, and we're sitting comfortbaly at the top of the table. We've had one really bad game though, and that was against Riteriai. They had two shots in total and we had 28!

The biggest surprise in the league so far has to be that Zalgiris currently sits bottom, and looks like they might get relegated!

 

Best player so far is Aidas Baranauskas (YP12f). He has an avg rating of 8.18 in the league!

We had a huge gap after the normal league ended! For some reason we're really struggling with Riteriai, and lost three out of the four games against them in the league... That was the only three games we lost...

The gap was so big that we actually won the league before the Campions Playoff, making it two in a row for us!

We should have won the Lithuanian Cup as well, but lost it against a team from the tier below us. They won the league with a nice 15 point gap, but still...

The main reason we lost this game was that we only 14 availabe players in total! The game took place in a international break, and most of our players were gone.

Aidas Baranauskas had an amazing season, and deserved to win this. But I'm a bit surprised that he won it with this much.

Robertas Paulauskas (YP08j) will most likely be our most capped player at the end of next season.
