Antwerp United


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


The squad


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.

these players didn't fit on the screenshot :p
Abou Coulibaly
Oumar cissé

the captain of the team is Rubin Dantschotter
It's an interesting idea, hope you keep with it. Good luck :)

Expectations


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..

pre-season


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

Next update will be bigger.
If you are in the 2nd Division A (First Post), why does the board want you to win the 2nd Division B?

Period 1


if you don't understand period and play off rules read this.


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:

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 against Rupel Boom
We really had to win if we wanted to stand a chanche to win Period 2
but even though we dominated the game, we weren't able to score

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
