The motive to the story


After my story with Bruce Wayne succeeded and my A.C. Milan save got corrupted, I decided to start a new story.

This time, I will play as myself, Or Dabool. I will start as an unknown manager, and try to improve my career. The game is played after a transfer update.

My first club


After applying to several jobs, the two biggest clubs that wanted me were the Spanish team Alcorcón and the English team Bury.

After consideration I rejected Bury for Agrupación Deportiva Alcorcón. Although Bury are better than Alcorcón, I chose Alcorcón because I love the Spanish playing style, and because that is a bigger challenge.

Club info




Agrupación Deportiva Alcorcón is a Spanish football team based in Alcorcón, in the autonomous community of Madrid. Founded in 1971, it currently plays in Segunda División, holding home matches at Municipal de Santo Domingo, with a 5,430 seat capacity.

Kits:

Home | Away

Transfers and squad


Because the squad is mostly unknown I will not describe the transfers, but I will show the squad. The players marked with a '*' were brought by my transfers.

Starting 11:

- Goalkeeper - Manu (25) - Rate:
- Right Back - Nagore (30) - Rate:
- Central Defender - *Francisco Pavon (31) - Rate:
- Central Defender - Jean-Sylvain Babin (24) - Rate:
- Left Back - Angel (29) - Rate:
- Defensive Midfielder - *Manuel Curto (25) - Rate:
- Midfielder - Sergio Mora (31) - Rate:
- Midfielder - Ruben Sanz (31) - Rate:
- Striker - *Ruben Suarez (32) - Rate:
- Striker - Quini (31) - Rate:
- Striker - *Brian Nieva (21) - Rate:

Subs:
- Goalkeeper - Manu Herrera (29) - Rate:
- Defender (center/right) - *Oleguer (31) - Rate:

- Defensive Midfielder, Midfielder - *Nicolas Godemeche (27) - Rate:


All and all, I built a fairly good squad compared to the squad that was here.
Spent: €650K Received: €1.4M

Tactic


The tactic we will use is a downloaded tactic called 'FMTN Grid System'. I chose this tactic because I used it before and got great results with it. You can google it up and download it if you like.
Picture:



Key players for 2011/2012


I think there are 3 players in the squad that deserves being more detailed. Those players have individual ability that can decide if we are going to have a successful season or not.

Sergio Mora
This is Mora's third season with Alcorcón. During the years he became an important player at the club, and this season he is going to be in charge of midfield.
Profile:

Quini
This is Quini's third (not consistent) season with Alcorcón. Quini is a very talented and experienced striker that can really help the club score goals. He is the sort of player that can win matches.
Profile:

Francisco Pavon
Francisco Pavon is a player that played most of his career in the great Real Madrid. Pavon is a superb player that can do the role of defending expertly.
Profile:


Preseason matches




After I finished taking care of transfers, We start our training matches.

Alcorcón 4 - 1 Alcorcón B
Quini (x4)
Javi Hernandez
Quini

Easy match, but Quini already shows me what a quality striker he is.

AS Beauvais Oise 1 - 3 Alcorcón
Mikel Alonso
Brian Nieva
Sergio Mora
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Sergio Mora

Again, easy match, and the team worked perfectly.

Alcorcón 4 - 0 Atalanta
Brian Nieva (x4)
Manuel Rueda
Brian Nieva

Great game! I expected a draw at most, but Nieva had other plans.

Alcorcón 2 - 3 Palermo
Manuel Curto
Quini
Ruben Suarez
Fabrizio Miccoli (Palermo)

Well, we were expected to lose, but the team still fought on. we were 3 behind and were able to snatch 2 goals. Almost drew level.

Villaviciosa 0 - 7 Alcorcón
Mikel Alonso
Brian Nieva (x3)
Saul (x2)
Oriol Riera
Brian Nieva

That's exactly what we needed. Huge win to boost our confidence!

Alcorcón 4 - 0 Juventus Reserves
Oriol Riera
Quini (x3)
Oriol Riera
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Quini
Edu Moya
Mikel Alonso
Oriol Riera
Quini

Good game. Quini shows once more that he is a talented striker.

Well, it looks like it's going to be a good season for Alcorcón. Read, follow and comment and I will continue to update.
If any of you have some tips on how to improve the story I will be happy to listen.
Nice detail. Keep it up Or!!!!!!!!
Really good, its not like all the other spanish saves where they all go for barca or Real :P

Good luck.

Good luck.

Thanks guys. I will continue to try and improve the story.
I've started in the 5th Division, so I'm gonna race to you :P
2012-10-03 16:55#66989 mdlp1991 : I've started in the 5th Division, so I'm gonna race to you :P

Spain is very fun. I had a save once with Xerez.. one of my best :)
There's not a lot happening story-wise so far, Or, but writing-wise, you are doing really well.

- The first post is fascinating. Any sane FMer would've gone for Bury. There would've been enough potential to make that story brilliant, but shouting out loud, "I rejected Bury for Agrupación Deportiva Alcorcón" would be awesome.
- You put in a lot of effort to post all those flags, stars and bolding, but I would've loved to see who you have signed. A simple * after those players' names would suffice.
- What tactic are you using, Or? Whatever it is, surely seemed to be working during the pre-season, and I hope it works for you in the regular season.
- I know it is Spain and most people know about the rules, but doesn't this league has some promotion playoff system? Would you mind explaining some of the different rules that this has, especially since a lot of clubs have their 'B' teams in this league and they cannot get promoted.
- Stats of 3 of your best players, please. A personal recommendation from my side: Quini.

The league begins!


The LIGA adelante begins, and Alcorcón are ready to show what they got.
First matches:
Las Palmas 0 - 0 Alcorcón
David Garcia (Las Palmas)
Although Las Palmas are pretty good and we played away, I wanted a better start to the season than a boring draw.. but on the bright side, we did have more shots and one woodwork. Need better luck next time.

Alcorcón 3 - 1 Barcelona B
Quini
Oriol Riera x2
Oriol Riera
Great win against one of the more difficult clubs at the league. Quini and Riera gave us a 2-0 lead but then Araujo scored for Barcelona B. Riera got his second right after Barca's goal from a penalty.

Mirandes 0 - 2 Alcorcón
Ruben Suarez
Oriol Riera
Sergio Mora
Brian Nieva
Great match. Mirandes are a weak team but still, away match and we got a great result without having to be at our best. Nieva was the man of the match with two great assists.

Alcorcón 3 - 0 Sporting gijon
Ruben Sanz
Oriol Riera
Quini
Oscar Ramirez
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Angel
Great great result! We dominated Sporting although we were underdogs. Ruben Sanz gave us a lead at the 9th minute. From there, everything went perfectly. Angel was awarded man of the match for a brilliant assist and a great defensive display.

Huesca 2 - 3 Alcorcón
Brian Nieva
Lucas
Oriol Riera
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Sergio Mora
Nieva scored in the 27th minute and gave us a lead but we were too relaxed and conceded 2 goals. luckily, one of Huesca's players got his second yellow and Lucas and Riera found the spirit to give us the lead. Need to be more careful next time.

We had a great start to the season, and right now we are positioned in the first place.
League table:


We also had a match in the Copa del Rey against Cordoba.



Alcorcón 3 - 1 Cordoba
own goal
Saul
Brian Nieva
Flavio
Saul
Cordoba are not a weak team so it was a good win for us. They gave us an early lead with an own goal and we managed to carry on from there. Alcorcón are through to the third round.

As always guys read, enjoy, and comment your thoughts or tips and I will continue to update.
Oh, and by the way, happy B-day Stam! You are already a legend.
Top of the league, congrats man! I'm loving this story, its fascinating and well writen.

More games in the league


We started the league great, and the new and improved squad showed brilliant ability to defeat some strong teams like Barcelona B, Sporting and Huesca.
We now want to continue this good run of form in the league.

Alcorcón 2 - 0 Guadalajara
Oriol Riera
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Oriol Riera
Sergio Mora
Good game. We controlled the game, Riera continued with his goalscoring ability and Babin got his first goal this season with a beautiful header. Sergio Mora in the background again, wining man of the match for 2 assists and brilliant possession game.

Numancia 0 - 1 Alcorcón
Sergio Mora
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Jean-Sylvain Babin
Very tough away game. Numancia are a good team and they defended really well, but Sergio Mora scored an amazing free kick in the 73 minute and gave us the win. Also, we are not conceding once more, and Babin got rewarded for that.

Alcorcón 3 - 1 Murcia
Brian Nieva
Oriol Riera
Ruben Suarez
Brian Nieva
Chando (Murcia)
Good, simple home win. Our 3 strikers got a goal each, and performed really well. I can't understand why Chando got the man of the match.. He scored for Murcia, so what? I think Nieva deserved it more. For me, he is the MotM.

Hercules 0 - 2 Alcorcón
Brian Nieva
Oriol Riera
Saul
Amazing. Simply amazing. A superb away win against a strong team. We defended great and haven't got a single yellow card, yet we were comfortable winners.

Alcorcón 6 - 1 Xerez
Quini x3
Oriol Riera
Brian Nieva x2
Oriol Riera
Quini
Wow. Alcorcón amaze me game after game. I'm really falling in love with my team :P We dominated Xerez and they simply had no chance at all. Quini with a superb game.

Copa del Rey 3rd round




We already defeated Cordoba in the second round, and now we got a match against Sabadell in the third round

Alcorcón 3 - 1 Sabadell
own goal
Sergio Mora
Brian Nieva
Oscar Ramirez
Jean-Sylvain Babin
We are through as it wasn't a tough match. We controlled, scored, and defended great. Babin is keeping performing perfectly. He is having a great time in Alcorcón, just as me.

For the next round we got Osasuna. It's gonna be very hard but, can we make an upset? :)
As always guys read, enjoy, and comment your thoughts or tips and I will continue to update.
Just saw you updated this and have read it from start to finish. You're doing quality with Alcorcón, when's the last time you lost? lol
Loving the layout and the easy to read match reports.

Looking forward to the next instalment.

Thanks! keep in mind that the good performance is the result of the transfers, tactic and mentality. That's why we are playing good. But it's still too soon to know. There are teams like Villareal, or our next game against Osasuna that will probably still defeat us..
Very strong start so far, keep it up! :)
