I wanted to pick some club that was sometimes in the past well-known, and as far as I know, Boavista was once a good team, playing Champions League.. winning the league in front of Porto, Benfica, Sporting, Braga?
Things are different now, they have a lot of foreigners in the squad, a few Portuguese players.. and I wanted to change that. I want to bring some Portuguese players, as much as possible, and to bring also some good foreigners to make a team for the Champions League and to win the league. I love to bring always players within the same country as the club is. Here is my story with Boavista F.C., with just a 600k budget and a lot of weak players in the squad.
To make the story short, I'll tell you that I have sold few players, the best transfer was selling one Brazilian for 2.1m, and that was the amount I needed to bring few good players in order to try to win the league first season.
I did the transfers in pre-season break and also in January, but these are the transfers I did:
LOANED FROM VALENCIA
LOANED FROM LAZIO
And these players were in the squad already:
Look at this players Alberth Elis, he had a value of 1-2m in the beginning, but after 1 season he is now 17m!! Read more below to find why...
And what I did with this team, fighting against big teams like Benfica, Porto, Sporting..
Yes, it was that close to winning the league but unlucky I was in the finish! Anyway, I'm so proud of my team, looking forward trying to win the league next season and try to do something in the CL. I know it is hard, because this team is not something with the attributes... there's one killer and he is Alberth Elis, he actually scored nearly 50 goals! He was named EU Golden Boot and more awards.. can't believe that he was capable to achieve any of the awards because his attributes are not so fantastic.
NEW SEASON ARRIVALS 2021-2022
Aside from new coaches, physios, fitness coaches... I bought these players (loan/transfer):
LOANED FROM BENFICA
LOANED FROM LILLE
TRANSFER (800K INSTALL, 50 LEAGUE APPEARANCES)
..and signed a new contract with the existing player, Hamache:
I think this is it, with this team I'll try to win the league and do something in the Champions League. It will be hard I know, but let's see. I don't have any penny in the budget, and happy to have Portuguese players in the squad.
