Best of luck. The board selling Močinić will be rough, but hopefully you can get someone from the youth system... Croatian clubs have good regens frequently, so you should do fine.
I hope Jhon Arango or Filip Bradaric will be able to replace him, i've already got some players with good potential that are on loan
You seem to have a decent squad, especially with Zivkovic coming in. And as I have learnt from tbendis, Croatian teams definitely don't have a problem with youth development
Yeah im hoping to get training facilities and youth facilities upgraded at the end of the season and i've already got some great youngsters so we're preety much set for the future
Monthly overwiew

First match was against Split where we kept clean sheet and scored one goal to take victory of 1-0(Home), Roman Bezjak gave us early lead in 28th minute and we kept it untill the end to take away 3 points.Second match was against Istra1961 where we won 2-1(Home), goalscorers were Miral Samardzic and Muzafer Ejupi, player of the match Jhon Arango on his debut and he picked up an injury for 2-3 weeks.Third game against Zagreb we won 2-0, Marin Tomasov scored both goals for us and was player of the match.Perfect month with 100 % win ration we have gotten another manager of the month award and we currently have 6 points adventage over Inter Zapresic.

Good month! You could be a real force in future years if you can produce some talent.
Im surely hoping for it first to take finance and facilities to the next level than slowly building towards it
Monthly overwiew

First match was against Slaven Belupo 0-0(Away), such dead game, total shots on target 1 from us and thats it, player of the match was Marko Leskovic.Second game against Hajduk again 0-0(Home), they had 4 shots on target while we had 2 but not much of those shots on target were "clear cut chances".Third game against Inter Zapresic we won 2-0 and i thought the Croatian first league was ours as we had 9 points adventage, player of the match was Mihael Rebernik.Fourth game was against Dinamo, players were playing with confidence from the last game and we got early lead from Roman bezjak(10. min) and than Filip Bradaric double the lead in 50 minute(pen.), i was hoping thats the winning goal but they proved us wrong as Ivo Pinto got them back to 1 in 58 and than in 90 minute Marko Pjaca scores the equalizier.Fifth game was against Split, was hoping we complete the month with a win but it turned up to be a real turnaround we dominated the game while they had some counters and they won 2-0.

Not the best of months mate but at least there was only the one defeat :)
Yeah it was good to keep clean sheet but im not really delighted with a draw now i gotta have almost perfect month as i have 5 points of adventage and 7 games till the end of season
End of the season+Season rewiew

First game in the upcoming month which we hope to make perfect because we have 5 points adventage over Inter Zapresic.Both teams had some chances in first half but it was our side that has suceeded to score one Roman Bezjak scored in 42th minute and "made my half time team talk easier".After the half time players started to play right away and catched them sleeping as Moises scored in 47th minute,after that it was quite for about 14 mins but than Mateo Bertosa got a red card and they scored right away from a set-piece after that they tried to put the pressure and did it in 84 minute when they equalized but right away in 85th minute Anas Sharbini scores for 3-2 and takes all 3 points from them as we were playing away.Player of the match was Muzafer Ejupi(1 assist)

Next game on the way is a tricky fixture against Osjek at home.Ivan Saponjic gave us a lead in 34th minute with a quality finish than the game was kinda quite except for few of our chances but they just tried to play on counter and it didnt work for them, than they got red card in 81 minute and after that just in stoppage times Anas Sharbini doubled our lead to make it 2-0 for us.Great match with great stats for us, we got all 3 points and we kept clean sheet.Player of the match was Anas Sharbini(1 goal and 1 assist).

Now we have to go to Istria for a local derby where we will be hoping to take all 3 points to consolidate our position on top of the table and to do it for the fans ofcourse!The game didn't start as we were hoping it was very quite,nerve-breaking game and untill 43 minute there were no promising chances but than Moises got a red card and after half time, they were all fired up.In 49 minute we condeced for 1-0,and then they put pressure on us which resulted as a penalty which they converted into goal in 71 minute,after that Dario Tomic scored own goal and gave as a glimmer of hope but we have only received another red card in 90 minute for our right back Mihael Rebernik

Adric derby incoming away, this game is a must win as i've got four games untill the end of season and now just 2 points adventage.We got off to a good start by scoring already in 4th minute as Anas Sharbini gave us the lead but after that they were dominating us as they equalizied in 12th minute for 1-1 and than they scored again in 31st and 33rd minute for 3-1.After the half time team talk players were all fired up and ready to play some football as we've still got 45 minute untill the end.Just like they wrecked us 1st half we did it to do them 2nd half untill 66th minute we hadn't have any luck in front of goal but then Ivan Saponjic scored to boost our morale 3-2,just 7 minutes later Saponjic scores again and its 3-3 now they have to woory as we're beating them absolutely in stats just need one more goal, 3 minutes later Saponjic scores his hat-trick, im absolutely delighted for his hat-trick and for the team's amazing comeback as we got from 3-1 to 3-4.Player of the match was Ivan Saponjic ofcourse as he has done just amazing to bring us back into the game

Next game against Zagreb, where we were 100 % confident in pulling of a win as they we were huge underdogs but we couldn't score in the first half, we've had some decent chances but nothing spectacular.After the half time we suceeded to put ball in their web as Marko Leskovic scored from corner for 1-0, the rest of the game was quiet with no chances to be seen for either sides.Player of the match was Mihael Rebernik with a fantastic 9.0 rating

Last game of the season at the home,Rujevica(our stadium) expected to be sell-out with full stadium

Next game against Slaven Belupo was most important game of the season the season as it was putting us the pressure to win and to not struglle in next match against Inter Zapresic or to drop points and beat them, ofcourse we were looking for a victory here and we got quite lucky Ivan Saponjic scored only goal on match and it ended 1-0(Home) where we had just 1 shot on target.Player of the match was again Mihael Rebernik with much lesser rating now but fantastic for a youngster

And its now oficiall Inter Zapresic have dropped 3 points just before the final match against them.Im absolutely delighted to lift club's first Croatian first league trophy ever.

This final game was not important to either side as we had 5 points adventage over them and they have long before this game get their 2nd place but still we're looking to win.We were keen to get a good start and thats what we were able to do that is Muzafer Ejupi was able to do as he has scored already in 3rd minute of the game, Roman Bezjak doubled our lead just because half time in 41st min. and the rest of the game was quite at least for them since they had just 1 shot on target and we had 5 times more.Player of the match was Marin Tomasov with 1 assist

These was last 2 months now,let's get to season rewiew/"start for new season"

Transfer budget is set at 2.1 milion and we have just 27 k available for wages but maybe we will sell some player, will wait for the transfer windows to open than willl let you know.I've asked board for youth facilities and senior afiliate they accepted both, while they rejected "increase scouting range".
