Well done for turning it around mate, looking forward to seeing what you can do on a European scale!
Brilliant! Hopefully you can dominate the Eredivisie next season as well.
What a month! First winning in Amsterdam, against Ajax. What a atmosphere, what a game. Couldn't asked for more, placing fourth we did well going up four places and coming back from 8 points or so behind.
Of course the play off wasn't about beauty on our side, really struggling against PEC and we needed a miracle to advance to Europe, but we did it! That's what matters in the end. Feyenoord played 3 matches amazing and we played 3 matches poorly. We finished strong and it got us European football.

Previous Update: #33 AZ pull off miracle
That month of May really was an extraordinary month of football for AZ!
Next season is going to be HUGE!
Brilliant news from that update! Looking forward to how next season goes for Matteo and the AZ boys.
I wanted to let you guys know that due to laptop errors, I had to reinstall most of the programs that where on my laptop including Football Manager. As a result I lost my saves including the Matteo save, so it will not continue.
Thanks for all the feedback, I learned allot and hopefully I can carry it on into a new story if I start one again!
For the ones that wanted to know, I was second in the league with a game in hand and 2 points behind number 1 PEC Zwolle, I was already out of Europe due to losing to Hearts in the 3th round of the qualifying rounds.
Such a shame, really enjoyed this save/story so I look forward to your future plans.
The progression both in your save and writing was brilliant and this story will be missed but boy you're next story will be a cracker
