    No need for me to update in August so I waited till my Saudi Arabia u23 matches as this is my only job still I had to face Iraq u23s in Olympic games qualifiers n my player pool had about 5 players that I was able to choose from on 7th september I flew with my squad over to Iraq where we played well away from home getting a 1-1 draw. Then one week later we were back at the king Fahd stadium for the return leg we started well dominating for 90 minutes but just couldn't find a goal so had to go to extra time and then the dreaded penalty shootout after telling the lads the order of takers off they went to the far end scoring every penalty whilst Iraq missed 2 we are in the group stages sorry if post was a bit long but please say if it was will update next month

    At the end of January now got my Olympic qualifier game against Kuwait comin up on 22nd feb so will be giving some match reports soon as for ifk we have not been doin well in friendlies having only won 3 in 10 but the teams we are playing is top teams to get experience the hard thing is attracting players but the wage budget is lasting forever with my most expensive player earning £300 per week and all others signing contracts for less then £10 a week so I have now built a squad that has depth and a full reserve side now will post again at end of feb with updates of Saudi Arabia

    2nd most annoying: it feels like you are just typing this, more of the proper spelling. 'comin'? coming. 'feb'? Febuary, 'at the end of January (I) now got my... Fix missing words aswell, and more of ,, ., etc aswell.
    3: you only waited an hour for the 10 leagues -.-

    The story so far!
    After reading what Atreidas said earlier i have decided to do my posts better but as im already halfway through the fm year i will just give updates from here onwards so here goes!!

    Saudi Arabia under 23's
    In February we started our campaign in the Olympic game qualifiers our opening game was against Kuwait. We had less possesion but although having more shots then them as you can see none of them managed to hit the target let alone back of the net.



    a very dissapointing result for us but surely with a change of tactic our next games would be better?? We went into our game with South Korea as underdogs and i let this be known to my team before the game.



    with the game against South Korea over morale was high in the squad and we were hoping to take this boost into the game against china who were yet to win any games having been beaten by South Korea and Kuwait. Even i wasnt expecting this result:



    After that shocking defeat surely we could pick up our heads again for the upcoming Kuwait game or could we??



    With my left back and centre back injured in first 21 minutes having one defensive player on the bench was the issue so i had to change my formation mid game which i hate doing but with a stern halftime team talk it obviously worked.

    The group now looks like this


    meaning defeat aginst South Korea or China is not an option and we have to rely on Kuwait's results to go our way. Is our olympic dream over??

    The story so far!!!

    IFK Hassleholm

    A club founded in 1905 currently playing in Sweden Second division SG

    as i said earlier i didnt know how to post screenshots so this is my story up until now with this club. I have had to bring in many players and staff as squad was way to small here is my transfers:







    I played many friendlies mainly through boredom but as you can see from the 2nd pic my team is starting to gel well together our best result beating Hammarby (swedish premier side) 6-2 after losing to them in the first friendly.






    Just weeks away from start of season now so plenty more updates to follow.
