Decided Serbia/Partizan to be a good lace for the beta stage of the game big fish small pond - should be able to challenge for domestic silverware, got pulling power and its a nation that produces decent players and i have never managed in.
Was niot expecting to smash Brondby like this after the tight first leg
I was gonna post in a thread about my Gateshead journey, but I will do tid bits in here instead
will be doing season reports, mainly images.
Boards aim was avoid the drop we finished 19th
our cup performances were pleasing for the board, and I was happy too
My better perfoming players are oddly former newcastle youth players! Adu-Peprah and Bartlett Garrido was pretty solid to
Bartlett was our top goalscorer with 14 goals in the league
Our board for next season would like playoffs!, quite a big jump During preseason I will be setting up friendlies with Scottish and sides from the north east, hopefully in mini cup or league form Hoping to get Newcastle, Middlesborough and affiliated Sunderland to agree to come to our big ground, to help sustain our balance!
And in my 7th season, in charge im in the championship, after 10 games im 18th, but financially we not gonna be competing at all. which I knew would be the case, I was hoping to also be able to get closer to 12k capacity in our debut season, but we struggling to get 6k fans including away through the door.
This is first time in this save the I wanna try something different has hit me.
I say different, bet I end up in England still once I decide on something.
I don't know how well it is represented in the game but Lusitania de Lourousa has a huge following for the level of football they play at. When they were in the 4th tier, which here in Portugal is mostly amateur and regional leagues, with most teams having attendances in the hundreds, in the games against their rivals they had 8 to 10 thousand people in the stadium.
I have noticed Queens Park seem to sell off Hampden Park move into Lesser Hampden get approx 5m then a year later in 2021 turn pro - I assume si worked this in to reflect real lifes vote to change from a am side to a pro side.
Might have to holiday to end of season two, to see how QP being pro effects things.
Shit, shame on that jawzy mate. River is quite a dominant side right now so not much of a long term challenge there, unless you want to make it a kids save, not buying players at all. From the rest, well Cruzeiro is a decent shout, but it'll be easy to bring them back to glory, with the big bucks coming easily in Brazil. Spartak Moscow seems like a fun game, but if you fancy Ukraine, trying to fight against Shakhtar is a fun save always, with Dynamo Kyiv or even a smaller side.
