Santos is the defending Paulista and South American champion. Domestically, the club have won twenty Campeonato Paulista titles, one Copa do Brasil, and a joint record of eight Brazilian championships. Internationally, they are amongst Brazil's most successful clubs with seven international titles, including three Copa Libertadores and two Intercontinental Cups. In 1962, Santos became the first club in the world to win the continental treble consisting of the Paulista, Taça Brasil (Brazilian Championships), and the Copa Libertadores. That same year, it also became the first football club ever to win four out of four competitions in a single year, thus completing the quadruple, comprising the aforementioned treble and the Intercontinental Cup. Their international and domestica success has led IFFHS to name Santos as one of the top twenty clubs in South America in the 20th century. Founded as Santos Foot-Ball Club on April 14, 1912 by the initiative of three sports enthusiasts from Santos by the names of Raimundo Marques, Mário Ferraz de Campos, and Argemiro de Souza Júnior, the club has become a symbol of beautiful and exciting football, known in Brazil as "futebol-arte". It is one of Brazil's richest football club in terms of revenue, with an annual revenue of $45.1m (€31.5m), and one of the most valuable clubs, worth over $86.7m (€60.6m) in 2011.[10] Santos was a founding member of the Clube dos 13 (English: Club of the 13) group of Brazil's leading football clubs.

The Beginning

ive decided to start a story with Santos due to the top quality youngsters they have in their ranks, it will also be challenging to keep top teams from taking our top talent

After looking through the first team , U23s and U20s ive noticed a few youngsters that could turn out to be real superstars
Felipe Anderson
Christian
Rafael
and we all know about:
Neymar
Ganso

Season Objectives

ill be looking for a very strong position in the first division (season already started when i took charge, currently sitting in 7th), when december comes around we will be flying off to japan to take part in the FIFA Club world cup where i will be expecting us to make the final and even go onto win it.

my main focus for the upcoming season is to play our more promising youth products on a regular basis in order for them to realise their potential
Looking forward to your next post. All the best!What's the starting budget by the way?
our transfer budget is $3.25m im not to fussed as i wasnt planning on dipping into the transfer market
Should be good. Felipe Anderson and Ganso were all beasts on my FM12. Can't say the same for Neymar unfortunately, but I'll be seeing how this story goes.

July Results


Atletico Goianiense vs Santos (1-1)
Santos vs Sao Paulo (2-0)
Aval vs Santos (0-1)
Santos vs Flamengo (3-2)
Santos vs Internacional (0-2)

so the month of july has come and gone pretty quickly and i have mixed results to show for it. Picking up 3 wins out of 5 games

Transfer News


Arsenal have made an approach for Neymar which we have turned down with no hesitation what so ever
Nice. Hard to believe that Arsenal would spend 45M in real life though.
what other little gems have you got in the youth team?
