The fact that his name is spelled "Fellype" angers me. Sell him. :P

Thought you would get a bid of 5m+.. lawl. Hopefully, this will get you some wage budget for Jefferson :P

Doria should never be sold for less than £30m, he's awesome dude! Love the choice of manager, and I'm looking forward to what happens next!

I like it much better than the normal way :P

Nope, nobody would budge any higher than 2.7 ffs -_-

Absolutely spot on :P

The first time I played as Botafogo in FM12, he was still in the U20s, and only two years later he is a fully fledged starter, I am not selling him for £70million! Thanks for reading mate :D

Unfortunately, I need the money for wages. And I don't like unhappy players in my team.. sorry :P

Seedorf's Diary: Meeting The Staff



4th of January

Life on the training field has been.. well.. different! It is obscure overlooking the training as well as participating in it. This would be all so much harder without my staff! At Botafogo, we have a quality set up here, which allows me to prepare for matches and also play my role off the field, as manager.

I think we have some of the most talented staff members here, in Brazil. They are so good I can leave major roles and tasks to them and I know they can fulfill it. This is especially the case with my new head of youth development Luiz Fernando Moraes.

He is only recognized for his work in Brazil.. but my word is he good?! I think he works with the youngsters very well, he also can judge players ability and potential very well. One of the most important assets he possesses, though, is his man management. Luiz can keep people under control, he knows how they react and what they react to.



Fitness plays a vital role in players. These guys need to be playing the whole game and not get tired. They need to be able to play several games on the run, as the fixture schedule in Brazil is very tight.

With a premium Fitness Coach like Altamiro Bottino, I know all my players are very fit. Not only is he good with fitness and physiotherapy, but 'Al' is determined to make players fit and ready for matches. He can also manage them well, and motivate them to improve their fitness.

It takes a lot of skill to get youngsters motivated about their fitness, but Al can do it brilliantly. I have never seen a more enthusiastic Fitness Coach, and I am not letting him go.. ever.



Finally, in order to have a good squad, you got to find good players. Not only good players, but great players. Players who work hard, can communicate and of course, can play football. With a scout capable of unearthing one of the biggest things.. I think our future is pretty safe.

Ayres Morais de Albuquerque, or more commonly 'Ayres Albuquerque' is my main scout for finding young talent. I think he is one of the best talent spotters in the business, and it is a big business.

Not only that, but Ayres has a great tactical knowledge, so he knows the game. He is also determined to get the best players and find everything about them out.. but not too pedophilic.



With these staff, I think we have safe hands in all departments. Lots of freedom will be given to all these people to do what they do best. I will working closely with my HoYD in trying to produce some of the finest youth products in the world. This is only a recipe for success!

Shouldn't Ayres be your Chief Scout? ;P. As always, great updates, and even better staff :D

Oh gosh, I envy them! :))

Unfortunately, if I made him Chief Scout, no one else would join as Scout cos they weren't good enough or didn't want to join. Plus, he's like a gazillion years old, not in the right mind to set up a scouting network ;)

**Note**


I am just putting it out there that Fellype Gabriel is the WRONG GABRIEL. It turns out there is another Gabriel in the squad, and I have mixed them both up. I will begin to edit all the posts to fit the storyline accordingly. I hope this isn't too confusing.


P.s

I feel sooooooo stupid right now.
