It's 1-1 at HT, we hit the post and they countered with a long hoof to one of their strikers and tucked it away. Our first goal conceded in the tournament. We're dominating, but I'm very nervous.

2-1 78 mins, supersub Bassogog!

(Also we're playing playing in black except Onguene, I'm assuming my laptop is struggling with the graphics load as well as streaming Bundesliga :lol:)

FFS. Onguene had his pants pulled down by Kamara, their wing back smashes it home 2-2. 85 mins.

Swish counter and Bassogog bags his hat-trick. 4-2, 116th min, surely that's it?

Good luck in the AFCON final, a really big clash there. I signed Kamara at West Brom in my previous game, but can't ever forget how he argued about that penalty at Fulham. Don't let him put you down :lol:

It will be good to see your French career too @karanhsingh, both inspired by this great thread.

Edit: Wow, I hadn't seen all your updates from the final. Congratulations! Bassogog, such a shame he went to China so early in his career but he did well there for you!

Here's the player stats. Agoume was incredible; the only player to play every game smashing in 6 goals from midfield. Tueto Fotso was a class act too. AMang was the only disappointment, but he allowed Bassogog to become the supersub.

Silas has certainly done the job for you.

You're right, TP Mazembe probably would have been an excellent pick. When I was living in Africa they had an emerging Samatta amongst their squad and were certainly one of (if not) the wealthiest of all the clubs on the continent and better quality than most too. Maybe after your success the board might reconsider? AS Vita aren't a bad alternative though. In Senegal, perhaps ASPIRE might be an option as they are basically an academy with a fair bit of funding globally. The top half a dozen sides there are all worth looking in to. Coton Sport in Cameroon, and Stade Malien (Mali) are probably the pick of other countries outside of Ivory Coast. ASEC probably have the highest rating in your game although there is a team  in Ivory Coast that I personally prefer more (current squad, not for newgens). I don't think you would get much quality outside these bigger nations (Gabon or Togo may create one-off gems but not regularly).

If I was starting in France now it would probably be somebody like Lille, Rennes or Metz. But more likely I would head lower down the pyramid. In Ligue 2, it would be RC Lens (stadium size, great kits, fine history), Le Havre (awesome stadium design, history of producing great youth talent in the past), Grenoble Foot (stadium size and location), Le Mans (stadium), Lorient (kit colour) or AC Ajaccio (fond memories of Corsica). National clubs would be Laval (kit colours, stadium size), Gazelec Ajaccio (Corsica link, one of the few pro sides) or most likely Quevilly-Rouen (pro side, decent kits, little great history and reasonable stadium to build a modest club up). Last night I also loaded up an extended French database as there are so many choices lower down, but SC Bastia would probably be the pick for me (stadium size, fallen giant, Corsica link).

You're going well in AFCON - good luck with that and for continuing your fine work with RC Lens.

What was the database called you downloaded please @Jogo Bonito as I am going to start a French lower division save soon.

Titi enjoyed his time leading Cameroon to continental success and a game away from being on top of the world, but nothing quite beats managing your own country.

56b3f137a942ee11d7b634a6fe4a71fa.png

Way down in the rankings compared to Cameroon in 7th place - it's time to build a new African nation up.

There may be a lack in depth of quality, but the team will be built around Naby and Amadou.

Cheers Jogo, much appreciated.

@Jogo Bonito you are the master of doing threads. do you think its worth doing  French Leagues thread in the good player/team guides like they have with Italian league. the French leagues are my favorite leagues to play in cos I enjoy buying unknown African players and building them up but I am terrible at doing opening posts for threads.

Could you do one at some point as I think it would become a popular thread for people to go to.

I didn't notice Sadio Mane playing for Senegal in your African Semi-Final. Is he injured? Also I think he fits in with your team...

Agoume has been a fantastic addition to the setup, check out that goal! Onana also refuses to concede. A comfortable 3-0 win and we're into the final against Senegal. I was surprised to find out that Sadio Mane retired at the end of the 2022 World Cup!

I had Agoume on my recent QPR save after I managed to get him on a free, he was a fantastic squad player for me and I was able to sell him on for a very good profit in the end. I kinda wished I had got hold of him a little earlier on in order to help develop him as he seemed to have stagnated a bit from lack of playing time before joining me. I will definitely be keeping a lookout on my future saves for him.

Keep up the great work! 

Have come across that formation a few times and I can also tell you from experience that Ismaila Sarr is lethal. 

Meanwhile like @Jogo Bonito you have also inspired me to take up a project I have long been thinking of now that I just completed my sunderland save. I have started with Red Star FC in the national division, with basically the same aim, dislodge PSG or as Fergie would say knock them off their perch :lol:

Already loving it and hopefully this will be my next long term save - I'll probably make a thread about it once I get a season or two in.

I'm also very tempted to start in France myself especially after taking a break from my QPR game. I've played with the devils themselves (PSG) before Christmas and Ligue 1 was a fun league to manage in. I also like the look of Lille's squad. If I do go ahead and start I will probably start off in National division though! 

@smp20 Have literally read all of this thread this afternoon and i'm loving it! Bit late to the party but congratulations on the Champions League win from before and also on the League. Great strides with Cameroon too on the international stage. Will definitely be following!

Yaya Toure is climbing up the coaching roles. Obviously he started with us as an U19s coach, swiftly moved on the Chateauroux and won the 3rd tier and has now swiftly moved around Ligue 1 clubs Le Havre, St Etienne and now Nice. Great atts too!

It's nice to see an AI former player having a realistic good coaching career. Unlike those 35 y/o regens who get NT jobs out of the blue...

August - October 2023 Update

Transfers

73b18423541744aaccdf6c45d8e0e379.png

I think the values of the incoming transfers shows where we are at as a club; we've entered the elite stage. Wague is probably the best right back we could sign who fits the criteria, it's just a shame he hasn't been able to feature due to breaking his leg in the summer but he's now just a few weeks away from fitness. Ndombele was secured now we can afford to pay £100k+ p/w wages, while getting back Sergilio shows the pull and finances we now have at the club. Naby Keita was the icing on the cake in terms of signings; I didn't think we'd ever be able to get him in his prime. Vivien Doumbia completed our summer signings; a decent centre back prospect direct from Africa.

We said goodbye to some of the players who had been key in our first couple of seasons but we had outgrown them - Wissa, Castelletto & Doucoure. Aurier seemed to have a bee in his bonnet so we cashed in, while Kondogbia was the sacrifice for Naby. Anyone got a player that for some reason they keep on giving new contracts to and loaning out? Charles Boli is mine. Now in his 3rd season out on loan after being a star for the....2nd team. Yongwa, Fotso, Kassi, Kongnyuy and N'Guessan are all young stars who have gone out on loan for first team football.

Results

848a56d50e1be3e7ff6ab54af06b485f.png

We started the season off by retaining the 'Trophee des champions' against cup winners Nantes, but drew with Marseille in our opening league game which although not terrible was a little disappointing. We then went on a beautiful run of result thumping Bordeaux, Metz, Brest and Montpellier - Silas and Diakite were on fire! A great result away at Dortmund was heaven but we were brought back down to earth by Amiens who completely 'FMed' us. :seagull:

Nevermind, it happens, and we didn't let it dampen our spirits while we went on a winning streak including a 6-1 drubbing of St Etienne (sorry Yaya), an integral win against PSG and to top it off an away win against bitter rivals Lille :D

League Table

b930afbd063f79eb595e219cdb20f827.png

We're top after 11 games and it's already looking like a, now, typical two-horse race for the title.

Silas & Diakite are on fire, and hopefully your new African import will become a stellar signing in due course.

Yes it's much better :D - hopefully Silas and Diakite can keep it up. We've had a few direct from Africa now, would be nice for some of them to establish themselves in the first team but it's getting harder and harder for youngsters to get in :stop:

2023/24 Mid-Season Update

Nov-Dec Results

d44be5c9235f5a36d63075f0dc1d7f4a.png

A couple of draws but ultimately nothing to complain about after a continued unbeaten ran, except perhaps Monaco's 93rd min equaliser.

League Table

4b69a6603cdd79b003a44d994ad632a1.png

Lyon and Rennes aren't miles behind, but it's still looking like a two-horse race for the title and we've got a 2 point lead at the half way point.

Champions League Draw

dfbdc948983dd429947aa2cc17e33595.png

A tough draw - Bayern will want revenge against us knocking them out in the group stages 2 seasons ago.

Player Stats

a8659747ebd16de8c9210cc526863583.png

Some of our top youth players are now getting themselves in and around the first team, mainly thanks to quite a lot of rotation. Naby Keita is making the regista role his own with Camavinga now further forward, but of course Silas and Diakite are the standout performers leading on to...

Major Awards

8d45cca3c452f8dfa5d9bdbdb10f6002.png

Well done Silas, the best Africa offers. Unfortunately Titi's Guinea side will have to face him in WC Qualifying.

Sometimes you end up negotiating a deal that you cannot do anything but accept. Silas had been in incredible form; Bayern, Arsenal and Roma all sniffing around and ended up getting a whopping £110m upfront and £50m over 48 months from Bayern :eek:. Stuttgart are getting a fair whack of it though.

Here's a look at him now:

Ok, this is an insane amount of money to fork out on a youngster, but when you can afford it and you really like the look of a player sometimes you've just got to risk it. Guirassy has recently switched allegiances to Guinea and I'm looking forward to getting him capped before he decides to go back to France having already flitted between the two already!
