    I wouldn't have known that since I don't read non-FM stories. It's just "The Prodigy" in French, so it's not particularly innovative or anything. :P

    August 2012

    Cofidis Cup Third Round
    Torhout 3 - 1 Diest
    The loanee, Mehdi Tarfi, had a goal on his debut, and Glenn Verdonck had 1 goal and 1 assist, too. Our goalkeeper didn't keep a clean sheet, but otherwise, a great first competitive fixture.
    Player of the Match: Glenn Verdonck (Torhout)

    Cofidis Cup Fourth Round
    Kelmis 1 - 2 Torhout after extra time
    We struggled getting the ball upfield often because Verdonck lost out on many of Peersman's deep balls, but Lamonaca and Yde created something out of nothing. It took extra time, but we did it!
    Player of the Match: Renan Felipe (Torhout)

    Torhout 1 - 2 Wetteren
    A terrible start, our players were tired and couldn't do anything with the ball. We pulled one back but it was too late.
    Player of the Match: Brecht De Rouck (Wetteren)
    Injury Update: Kevin Theetaert suffered a gashed leg and will miss about 3 weeks.

    Cofidis Cup Fifth Round
    Torhout 1 - 3 WS Woluwe
    I'm not happy that we lost, but I am happy that we're not in the Cofidis Cup anymore, since it's just a fitness drain. We fought hard, but Woluwe's greater class in taking long shots doomed us.
    Player of the Match: Jeremy Serwy (WS Woluwe)

    Geel-Merhout 2 - 2 Torhout
    We were so close to a win, we just couldn't hold on! Holding your opponent to long shots is nice, but it doesn't help if your goalkeeper won't save them.
    Player of the Match: Gaetano Lamonaza (Torhout)

    Transfers

    In
    - Attacking midfielder Mehdi Tarfi has been taken in on loan from Anderlecht, a good way to boost the numbers there without paying a dime.
    - Ball-winning midfielder Aleandro Schifano has been signed to help our depth in the midfield.
    - Deep-lying playmaker Hendrick Pelenda has been signed, also to help with our numbers and give us more players to rotate in.

    Our single solitary point keeps us out of the relegation zone, but there's still a ton of football left to play.

    Irritating results, but I'm sure things will pick up sooner or later :)

    It's called Alavanja Pervection, and I think by now I've successfully recommended it to every single user on here :P

    I have to agree to this.

    And this.


    Amazing skins aside, not very good results, but you can definitely turn it around, I mean, look what you did to Everton :D

    September 2012

    Torhout 1 - 3 Bornem
    This match might have been different if Bornem wasn't awarded a bogus penalty, but we were poor in general and deserved to lose.
    Player of the Match: Yannick Put (Bornem)

    Rupel Boom 1 - 0 Torhout
    We kept it close, but couldn't generate goals ourself in order to capitalize.
    Player of the Match: Nils Wosky (Rupel Boom)
    Injury Update: Both Steve Barbe and Renan Felipe will miss about 5 weeks due to injuries.

    Temse 1 - 3 Torhout
    Finally, a return to our preseason form! It's nice to get our first league win, and playing well in all phases of the game. Jo Vermast is the standout, with a goal and an assist. Also on focus, a rare goal from the run of play by fullback Thomas Depoorter, scoring when his marker missed an interception and allowed him to shoot.
    Player of the Match: Jo Vermast (Torhout)

    Torhout 3 - 0 Berchem
    Jo Vermast was deadly today, scoring a hat trick! In addition, our defense was great at forcing Berchem to shoot from around the box, limiting Berchem's chances.
    Player of the Match: Jo Vermast (Torhout)
    Injury Update: Niels De Loof suffered a torn calf and will miss 5-6 months.

    Izegem 4 - 1 Torhout
    One step forward, two back for Torhout as their lack of defensive depth got exposed.
    Player of the Match: Dieter Wittesaele
    Injury Update: Both Klaas Devriendt and Maarten Cobbaert suffered bruised ribs and will miss 2 weeks.

    We got our first wins of the season, but suffered some embarrassing losses, too. We need to figure out something at left back.

    Eek, just outside that relegation zone. Seeing as though that is the last playable division on the game (I think), what happens if you do get relegated? Anyway, some good wins in there, hopefully you can pick up the form!

    A Flirtation

    I was called into Mr. Willem's office, and he was not pleased.

    "What is this I'm hearing about you applying in the Dinamo Bucharest job, Serge?! What's wrong with Torhout?" Willem asked.

    "I just feel like I can't accomplish my ambitions here. We have a wonderful squad here, and I've brought a wonderful system here, but it seems like something isn't jelling. In addition, we're having a serious rash of injuries. The pitch is, excuse my bluntness here, shit. You'll gladly pay for players, but you won't pay to have a proper pitch?"

    "I would, but you spent all our budget buying those players, half of which you don't even use," Willem rebutted.

    "That's because I have to cover my own ass when players can't play because of twisted knees and ankles. I'm already having to cover for Niels De Loof's torn calf, our left back position is very shaky, even with my new signing."

    Willem looked flustered. "Whatever the case, I'm demanding that you apologize to us, and then apologize publicly to the fans at a press conference I've had setup today, or you're FIRED!"

    "Fine, fine..." I sighed.

    October 2012

    Torhout 0 - 0 Olsa Brakel
    Without a single shot on goal, we were never going to win.
    Player of the Match: Sebastiaan De Wilde (Torhout)

    Deinze 1 - 0 Torhout
    Another close-run game that we failed to win.
    Player of the Match: Pieter De Wulf (Deinze)
    Injury Update: Jo Vermast suffered a twisted ankle and will miss 6-7 weeks.

    Torhout 1 - 3 Kapellen
    So frustrating as we had so many good balls into the box, our finishing was just complete rubbish.
    Player of the Match: Wesley Geuens (Kapellen)

    - The next 12 games are the Second Period. Kapellen won the First Period, so they will make the Promotion Playoffs.

    VW Hamme 6 - 3 Torhout
    By the time we finally started to play with any heart, we were already four goals down! Just a depressing performance
    Player of the Match: Davy Claessens (VW Hamme)

    Torhout 3 - 3 Coxyde
    After going behind early in the match, we had to scrap just to get the draw, and we might have had a win if Dieter Yde's goal wasn't disallowed.
    Player of the Match: Karel Ternier (Coxyde)

    Transfers

    In
    - Bram Van Caelenberg has been signed to improve our depth at left back while De Loof is out.

    Probably the only way we can get a spot in the playoffs is by winning a period, but we haven't started the second period off properly, either.

    Not going very well in the league :/ I like the storyline update, I am guessing the board gave you an ultimatum?
