August - November


Dodgy, very dodgy... We did have to face the big sides though.

League Result

To come in the top 1/3 of the league is amazing for a newly-promoted team! The very fact that we can compete with these teams means the world! I'll be sad to leave when I have to. :(

Average Points League:

8th is simply superb! The fact that we've averaged 1.5 points per game is great.

Player of the Year

Brian Aquino

He has been superb again. At this rate, he will be a legend at Ferro!

Squad (Sorted by Apps):


Our finances are very stable, and we are looking to the future! Our board actually gave me a £1m budget before I put it all in wages (Best thing to do with spare TB folks! ;) )

The Esteban López Profile Update

He is amazing. 2 goals in 8 apps at just 17 is good already! He may go out on loan to a 2nd Division side to develop, then he will be ready for the rigours of First Team Football ready for (hopefully) our Libertadores challenge!
A brilliant first season in what is a very competitive league, well done!

Youth Intake Day!

Lautaro Ojeda:

Not the star that López will be, but a very good prospect nonetheless! A versatile lad, his 2nd best stat is his long throws!

Mario Basualdo:

A good keeper prospect here! With impressive reflexes, he will go straight into backup position here at Ferro!

Gustavo Rodríguez:

Do we really need another talented ST prospect? He will serve greatly in a rotation role in the future!

Ramiro Fontana:

Another ST? Really? I suppose worst case scenario is that we will sell him for profit. :P
As Justice said, brilliant first season in the top flight and some decent little regens there too!
Great first season man and really nice looking youth intake!
Ojeda's beard looks like it contains magical powers :P
Man, you're really blasting through this! Love the look of Ojeda! Not so much his stats, just his style! :P

Job Availability Update:

Mainly just an update, but the Sao Paulo job is available. I don't know if I'd get it, but if I were to chance it and show my interest, would you all recommend I go there?
Basically, I was laughed off! :P
As strong a team as Sao Paulo have been in the past, would moving there guarantee instant success? I'm sure it would take time to create a winning formula with their set of players, while what you have at the minute isn't working too badly. Of course Sao Paulo have a great reputation, but would you sacrifice your work to date for this?
Justice: Eh, I was laughed off, I had no chance, but it was an opportunity. :P
Continue the legacy you're building at Ferro :)
ScottT: Hoping I can create a very good future for Ferro!

January - May:

A fantastic start turns into a devastating end as we slip to draws and losses that weren't necessary or good enough.

Points League:

A slight fall-off from last year, but just 8 points from the top!

Avg. Points Table:

8th, I am slightly annoyed, but I guess it is alright.


Mainly, this was to get depth in our squad, as we had literally no depth.

Player of the Half-Season - Brian Aquino:

He has been outstanding recently, picking up an Avg. Rating of 8.03 (!!) in 15 league games. Our star man!

Ezequiel López Watch:

The genius has vastly improved! Up to 16 finishing now, he looks perfect for the Trequartista or Poacher roles! He is also wanted by PSG, which is a bit risky...


We have had our finances cut by a million, but all is not lost as I enquired for more TB and got £3m more, I was shocked!
Three points off third place, that ain't bad
