Not sure if you guys follow Belgian football so i'll give you an update.
In Antwerp we have 2 Big clubs; R.Antwerp.F.C (2nd division) and Beerschot.A.C. ( 1st div.)
Both these clubs are in debt. Antwerp avoided bankruptcy.
Now Beerschot is having to play play-off 3 (degradation) (irl)
So its possible, both theclubs will play in 2nd dividion next season.
A lot of people are screaming for 1 big club in antwerp, so i made 1 in the editor named Antwerp United.
they have 10k transfer budget and 10k wage budget.
a stadium of 20,000 people.
i start the game in 3rd division A
I added a base of players in the editor, normal players, nothing special.
in the transfer window i bought 9 more players.
this squad should easily be able to win 3rd A.
The board expects me to win the 3rd division A
and expect me to stay in the cup till the 7nd round: this means i have to survive 3 rounds with higher league teams..
i think this was a good pre-season, winning from a couple of good teams.
Antwerp United 9-1 Antwerp United B
Seraing 2-4 Antwerp United
Antwerp United 0-2 Zulte waregem
Antwerp United 0-2 Aachen
Dessel 3-4 Antwerp United
Juve B 1-5 Antwerp united
WS woluwé 2-4 Antwerp United
Sprimont 0-6 Antwerp United
if you don't understand period and play off rules read this.
in thee 3rd division A there are 18 teams, they play eachother twice.
the winner of the 3rd division A wins promotion to the 2nd division.
the season is also divided in 3 parts: 1 period= 10games
the winners of these periods play the playoff for promotion.
if the periods are won by the same team, the 2nd,3rd and 4th of the league play the play off.
the winner of this playoff also promotes.
i hope you understand.
i think i overestimated my team, they started the season good, even shocking in the belgian cup.
In the belgian cup we got to the 6th round.
in the 6th round we got kicked out by charleroi (1st division.i actuallyy have no motiation AT all anymore.
AGAIN i try fm13 AGAIN it fails.
for some reason i can't get my players to stop shooting from outside the penaltybox.
i will keep trying till i get sacked.
then i will stop the story AND fm13. it's hopeless
this screenshot should say enough: http://i965.photobucket.com/albums/ae133/funny-dyl/AntwerpUnited-Izegem_StatistiekenWedstrijdstatistieken_zps466c42c9.png
i'm in 12t position.
first of all, i apologice for the last update, as it was clearly shit.
we had to make a come back.
I altered the tactis now we played a 4-4-2 (diamond)
our first game against izegem should be easy.
it wasn't. Antwerp United 0-3 Izegem
the next game was against Wetteren.
in a thrilling game it was 2-2 in the 80th minute (brace from thomas stevens)
in the 81st minute there was Dave Rauw (youngster DL).
he won the game for us by shooting form just outside the penalty box.
first win in period 2 Wetteren 2-3 Antwerp United
Then Hamme came to visit us.
they were 2nd in the league..
they came ahead..TWICE.
a brace from isidore WaWa secured a draw for us.
the team i tstarting to play better and better.. Antwerp United 2-2 Hamme
Now we had to go to Bornem
didn't have any problem in this game.
Wawa scored a Brace again
Stevens finished it off Bornem 0-3 Antwerp United
the turnhout game was next. this would be hard they were in 8th position (we were 9th)
Abou coulibaly secured a draw for us Antwerp United 1-1 Turnhout
next up: Torhout
Stevens secured us a victory by his goal. Antwerp United 1-0 Torhout
Olsa Brakel was next, i used a new tactic
they didn't got to see our goalkeeper, we kept pushing them back
Joris Jehan (DC) scored for us with a header from a corner.
Iddi passed the ball to Wawa who embarassed his defender and rounded it off
in the 2nd half Olsa puilled one back.
but then Iddi finished Olsa, by a beautiful freekick in the top left corner.
in the 90th minute Jehan scored again..with a header..from a corner.
Iddi was a deserved Man of the Match Olsa Brakel 1-4 Antwerp United
the next game was at Deinze
we showed who was boss from the first minute.
Coulibaly scored the 0-1 with a header.
the next goal was a bit of tiki taka and Coulibaly rounding it off.
in the 46th minute Lamonaca shot at goal from 25yards.. it went in.
in the 70th minute Coulibaly rounded off his hattrick, he just had to put his footh against the ball Deinze 0-4 Antwerp United
Now temse came to see us.
again i had 10 shots, 2 on target, BULLSHIT. Antwerp United 0-0 Temse
next was ronse
team played like shit Ronse 1-0 Antwerp United
i think we started the season bad because the players didn't know eachother.
apart from not being able to shoot at goal (any help with that?), the team is starting to play better.
we showed that in period 2.
now we will have to fight to win period 3.
The first game of period 3 was against Hoogstraten.. they were in 3rd position
My team also los 2 important players before the game, due to injury.
Isidore Wawa and Gaetano Lamonanaca where injured.
so, Thomas Stevens (ST) moved to AMC and Lorenzo Lai (ST) moved to AMR
During the game, Lai got injured for 7weeks..
A youngster is now replacing him until Lamonaca is back.
now to the game itself.
In the 41st minute Iddi gave a corner to the far post, N'Diaye headed it in, i was ECSTATIC.
i was scared.. until M'Vila finished them off with a VERY ugly goal :p
Antwerp United 2-0 Hoogstraten
Next up was Geel-Meerhout(7th)
Earlier that day, RC Mechelen(1st) lost
My scout said they had "defensive vulnerabilities"
IN the 5th minute Cascio(AMR youngster) had a crack, but the goalie managed to catch it.
he didn't manage to catch iddi's rebound
A bit later, iddi gave a corner, Jehan rounded off
in the 30th minute there was a wonderful pass by Iddi, Stevens just had to kick in.
in the 2nd half Iddi dropped the ball in the box , Stevens controlled with his chest and powered it in.
nearing the end, coulibaly had a shot, hit the post, but slided in the rebound
Geel-Meerhout 0-5 Antwerp United
now RC Mechelen came to visit us, if we win, we're 7points away from 1st place
In the 8th minute they really reminded me off the Shrews..after messing a bit with their defence.
Stevens passed the ball to Coulibaly who shot it in.
A couple of minutes later, Jehan headed in a corner. Iddi got injured...for 5 weeks
when he was gone, we didn't have anymore decent chanches
Antwerp United 2-0 RC Mechelen
next up was Kappelen
i would be happy with a draw, as i had to play with 2 18year old wingers..
in the first half kappelen scored.
in the 2nd half i decided to play my 4-4-2 diamond again, raplacing the 2 wingers.
Stevens headed a ball in from a corner.
10minutes later Vleminckx(DR) wanted to drop the ball in the box, but no one touched it, so it fell into goal.
Kappelen 1-2 Antwerp United
Now the Berchem game
after winning period 2 they actually started playing like shit only getting 4points out of 12
it could be very important to win this game. idecided to play 4-4-2 Diamond
We got the lead by a penalty.
