You're a big boy now
The first third of the virginride with the big boys has been pretty successful. We've managed to bring some of the biggest players on their knees beating Zilina and Trnanva 3-0 and 2-0 in back to back games along with some other upsets.
The table is tight as hell in the middle with only 9p separating nine teams (with no more than 12 teams total in the leauge), we find ourselves in the middle of this pack currently holding sixth place.
In case you're wondering why I never posted a summer-update it's because not much happened at all. I signed some of the top youth-players who were let go by other teams in the leauge along with a couple of free-transfers, none of which have been stars. To be fair though, just like last year, no one has really stepped up above the others, it's been a team effort all the way! Also, as always when you get promoted, I got rid of some dead wood. Here a summary of all my transfers last summer:
My only big concern for now is the financial situation. I'm used to it being bad while pushing for a promotion, but even after reaching that promotion things aren't looking much brighter, despite the fact that the expenses barley grew (the wagebudet was raised from €8k/w to €10k/w and the transferbuget 0, just as last year) from last season. This means that I'll need to reach Europe without funds in order to get this team to grow, a monumental challange!
I'll get back to you when the second third of the season is complete, unless I find something particullar to write about, for now, sayonara, fare well and whatever other phrase comes to mind!
PS, don't forget the sidenote!!! I'm still in the cup, the next game is the quaterfinals, an awaygame against another top division-team.
