Yes, good luck, that would be a massive achievement.

Paris were rock bottom after no wins and three draws in their first nine games (they held me to 0-0) but have started to stir and now have a few more points after 11 games.

In my save game they were relegated the 1st season, now in the 4th season they are back in L2, but after 3 games 0 points. So yeah not really a good squad i guess...

Thanks everybody for the kind word and support .

Changed a few of my squad and progress views / calculations.

e5ba6d9d9ab23fd0c97e3e6c8c533a6f.png
Included average age for youth intakes and all my numbers are now calculated on / 100.

  68ea47bc2b9478ef9f8f5308929b4849.png

And change my highest and lowest colour scheme.

  • First team : < 45 = red , > 55 = green
  • B / youth team : < 40 = red, > 50 = green
  • Youth intake : < 35=red, > 40 = green

Split my squad calculation into the units , i'll use this screen to organise my squad. Players in red will probably leave (loan finished or won't sign a new deal). The 'calculator first team' is the sheet i'll use to calculate.

This are my new progress calculator for individual players and groups/classes.

The first youth intake - Class of 2020 , developed a little bit on DNA, Mental and Phys. attributes. A little drop in technical attributes. Fabre is the best student at the moment.

Good luck in the last game. What kind of idiot is managing one of the promotion favourites (and actual Ligue 2 winners) FC Lorient in to relegation?

I'll forgive you beating them as you deserve it. Hopefully they will show up against RC Lens.

Great Season...That tie with Troyes denied you the Title, but auto promotion is still remarkable.:applause:

Hopefully you make the right transfers for continued success. I am sure your spreadsheets will help!:brock:

I hope the spreadsheet will help but i couldn't scout anyone (so can't see attributes) since +- january. I'll have to be creative (trials, loans) :)

Do you reckon diaby Fadiga will be able to hack it in Ligue 1? 

He'll be involved but my three strikers Armand - Sarr and Mendez had a crazy story.i'm about to post my review of season 1 , a big post with all the details.

@OlivierL: You know that you can transfer funds from Transfer fund to scouting budget. It might help in the future. Also you only pay for the most expensive of the two databases in the scouting module.

Yes i know, i didn't had any transfer or wage budget left , because i was way over my wage budget :(

Since 15th of may i received my new budget and i upgraded my scouting budget. So we have a little bit more time to scout shortlisted players

A great first season !

My three main strikers are the top 3 goalscorers , proud ! we scored many goals this season. Fadiga scored 8 in Ligue 2.

Coupe de France

A good run and win against Lille.

Coupe de la Ligue

Could have done better but not our priority this season.

Best players

Kanté - Arrondel - Koziello - Sarr - Felipe Saad

  • Kanté had a great season as our libero scoring 6 . He was our best player ! Arrondel scored 7 and provided 17 assists as a right wingback ! Free bargain.
  • Koziello was our engine and will be missed (he is going to get chances in the first team of Kölin).. or maybe i can extend his loan ?
  • Sarr was backup striker for Fadiga but ended up in the first 11 and scored 22 !
  • Felipe saad is an old central defender with a lot of experience.. he is the only squad player that won't extend his contract because he is homesick (Brazil).

Manager thoughts

Very proud of our first season. Media prediction 11/12 and automatic promotion makes me happy.
The gamble to invest in a number of contract renewals and get two wingbacks with a fairly expensive contract has paid off.
The financial balance looks negative, new wage/transfer budget will hopefully allow me to strengthen the squad.
5 Loan players of which one was in the base (Koziello ) will leave. one base central defender doesn't want to sign ( Felipe) . Three players from the b core will return from loan and will probably get their chance: defender Guillaume Victor , striker Marco Essimi and goalkeeper Christopher Dilo.

Season 2 preview

Improving the staff, improving the facilities and strengthening the core with three or four players should be enough to survive in Ligue 1 .
The objective remains of course to continue to monitor and share the progress of certain players. And especially the youth intake classes.

Great detail, data and analysis. It promises to be an exciting 2nd season for you. Sarr and Arrondel had great seasons, along with Kante. You're not keeping Koziello because of IDF tag?

Very kind words :) Koziello will get a chance at Köln but if I can, i'll loan him again . I make an expection for the players that are not from IDF if they were in my first squad.

Found 5 or 6 great new staff members but it costed me money to sack a few deadwood staff members.
Felipe saad extended his contract (player / u19 coach) but decided to retire.. he is reconsidering it but he's gone (together with Menez)..

Yes the HOYD looks excellent! Where were you playing Menez? His physicals must have gone down a lot.

He was my advanced forward . He scored/assisted 23 times. Sarr scored/assisted 24 times.

Not planning on posting details about every transfer action i make , in the next season but because this is the first time i have to prepare our first team with limited resources , for ligue 1 .

At the moment i lost my five loanies (inclusive Koziello, reloan not possible). And retired players Menez and Felipe Saad.

I have 3 player on trial : Castelletto (ex Brest) - Faty (ex Ankaragucu) - Fomba (Ex nimes).  the first two are possible free transfers, Fomba can be loaned from Nimes.

I already loaned 3 players(more about them in my pre-season & transfer update) and need one more striker and one more central midfielder.

You made a good decision playing Menez as a central striker (innovative thinking). Of the three on trial, the first looks very good and the third looks decent. The middle one, well, that depends on your needs and other options I guess :)

I can't control myself... I'm taking the Set Pieces attributes out of the technical calculation. That means "Corners", "Free kicks" , "penalty taking' and "Long Throws" go out of the technical attributes. This is more accurate. I also adjusted this in all the calculations of the first season.

Castelletto would be my best option at the back but he is to expensive.

Faty would be my best Ball winning midfielder and has a 'good' personality but i'm looking for a box2box or roaming playmaker since i lost Koziello. Fomba is doubtful because i have to loan him and i want to use my 5th and last loan option for a bargain at the end of august.

Conclusion : i'll keep them for the moment and i'm going to decide in two weeks what i'm going to do with them.

I have two other players on trial : Sissoko (ex St Etienne) - wbr and Benrahou (loan option from Bordeaux) - MC .

Last post before i'll post about my pre-season and squad for the second season.

Important contract extension, Fadiga wanted a new big contract.. he needs to replace Menez and i hope this will motivate him :

a tip for anyone who is doing a special region-bound transfer policy. Add in scouting - assignments - priorities the column 'birth city'.
I am sick and tired of my scouts tracking an Englishmen etc. despite all the instructions. Waste of time and money.
So I'm going to visit this page weekly and throw out all the new region bound scout assignments.

Season 2 - preview

Squad

4e76b4be58fefeecf33ddce3730c9417.jpg
 

13 from 23 players born in Ile De France !

 

ea5d8db9c2dacd328a0009ab0266a662.png
Our Overall attributes rating improved. Average DNA not. Our positive personalities increased.

c4d04c257407ca7d6cda122423b50364.png

  • Goalkeeper Maisonnial (3rd choice) replaced with Dilo ( back from loan).
  • Retired Felip Saad replaced with expensive Castelletto. He was on trial after being released from Brest.
  • Bah (b squad ) replaced with Oumar Solet (loaned from Lyon - no optional future fee) .
  • Cissé (loan finished) replaced with Dramé (loaned from Lyon with future fee 250k) .
  • Garcia (b squad) replaced with Sissoko ( loaned from Saint-étienne with future fee 1.25m).

=> I'm strengthened at the back. Solet and Castelletto are two Ligue 1 players.

71ec015ab3b4beca1fd8d893efae9245.png

  • Golden boy Koziello (Köln sold him to Augsburg) was not replaced , couldn't find a good solution so Kikonda and Martin will have to step up !
  • Retired Ménez and loanies Mara , Timité are replaced with Essimi (B squad), Gouano (Loan from Lyon , no future fee) and Ayé ( loan from Brescia, future fee 2m!)
  • Also transfer listed Lopez , he was a backup striker last season .

=> Not sure if my central midfield is ready for Ligue 1 but my front three should be ready ! We scored a lot of goals last season with Sarr, Ménez and Armand and i think Ayé and promising youth international Fadiga .

Transfers in & out

6c157180302b81d11e153578be194e63.png
No changes . But both captains are on the bench.. so first choice Kikonda will be the captain on the pitch.

Staff in & out

908e46ef314ef43135a27636b8623f60.png
Have found a lot of staff with a good mentality, some model Citizens . So here are a couple of changes :

Best eleven with Solet, Castelletto and Ayé joining the first team.

And 3rd choice goalkeeper Dilo.

 

Expectations - Media pred !

Not going down should be the right challenge.. but i hope i can do a little bit more and keep improving the squad / youth intakes.
