A intro..


So now onto the B nations and i was offered a job in Belgium at Standard, i was looking forward to spending a bit of money and trying to finish top in front of the most reputable clubs in Belgium, Anderlecht and Club Brugge. I also have a shot in the Euro Cup as i did with SV Ried so I'm also looking forward to that but to be honest I'd rather lose in the Play Off rounds and concentrate on the leagues rather than having so many games in such a short time so i can cut back on as many injuries as possible and keep the fitness and morale as high as possible in the league.

Squad at the start of the season

This is the Standard squad after i signed all my transfers, I think i signed 12 odd players this season and i made sure all my budget was spent. I think my attack is a lot better than my defence judging by what the assistant says but at least if i don't finish 1st i have a brilliant attack and i will just need to work on my defence.

Transfers at the start of the season

So here are my transfers for the summer, the most Notable being Koenin for 8m and Junior for 6.25m these are great additions to the squad which is probably why i said my attack is a lot better than my defence, I didn't really make much money regarding the transfers out but i had a bit to spend anyway.

Finances at the start of the season

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/start-finances_zpse5a7110b.png

Lost a bit of money but the bank balance is still ok so not really a lot to worry about, I'm just worried that if all my signings so gel pretty quickly and we go out of the Europa then I'll probably be negative next season meaning i won't get a very good budget!

My key player for the season

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/start-keyplayer_zpsc384c120.png

Decided to go with Junior i signed for 6.25m, the Brazilian looks fantastic! I'm hoping he adapts straight away and shows me why i paid 6.25m for him! It was between him and Koneig.

Fixtures

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/end-fix_zpsf22ef220.png

Here are the fixtures for the main league and the Championship Group the top 6 teams play in at the end of the season which decides the champion of the league.

Tables

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/end-champtable_zps07612718.png

I never expected to win the league after the first 12 games after such a shakey start but i managed to do it! I think it took a while for the team to gel to be honest. Also had a really good Europa as well despite losing in the first Knockout round to Rangers on penalties!! I will win the cup one day. Onto the next B nation!

Squad at the end of the season

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/end-squad_zps6799ac9b.png

My squad at the end and some fantastic individual performances from a lot of the players which resulted in them not renewing a contract and going to bigger clubs! So yea i great, great season for all involved!

Key player of the season

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/end-keyplayer_zpscfb754a9.png

My center back was immense and managed to get a contract at PSG next season he was at the club before i joined so all credit goes to the previous manager who got him into the team, I'm confused because he was valued at 7m when i joined and now he's only 1m i don't know if that because his contracts ending or what. He was the highest rated player of the season.

Finances at the end

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/end-finances_zps0bd0ae47.png

Comparing both finances it looks like they've had a loss of about 6m but are still in the positive which is good. They will be playing in the Champions League next season as well so if they do well there finances should boost up.
Commented:D
Haha thanks!
Great job in Belgium JK! Can't wait for the next B nation :D

The Job Offer

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/offer_zps8c5bdfd1.png

So there was no waiting around this time as i was offered a job i think after a week of being out of Belgium and it was at CSKA (Sofia) in Bulgaria who are probably the biggest team in the nation but they finished 3rd last season which is why i was offered the job, i wasn't going to turn it down they have a pretty decent squad and it's a big club so all that's needed is a few signings and changing the tactics/team around and i could possibly win it in the first season.

Who are CSKA (Sofia)?

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/back_zps556a066f.png

As i said by far the biggest club in Bulgaria they've won the title 31 times alone! It must of be a travesty for the fans when the last manager finished 3rd, by the look of it they haven't ever had any euro success, maybe if i get through to the group stages and with some luck it could be possible (not a chance)

How are there finances?

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/finance_zps7388134b.png

There finances are great but was a bit confused when i agreed the job offer it was only 660k transfer budget but i may of joined in may and then i had to wait till the end of June before i took pictures so i could get the table with no games played etc so that will probably be why. Some great finances to work with.

Information on the club

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/info_zps19ff527d.png

As you can see now I've joined the club we are predicted to finish 1st :) Ticket price £4 i wish i could change that. It's a very good club by the looks of it but not too many fans come and watch with only a average season ticket of 2k season ticket holders!

The Squad

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/squad_zps9c9f0c40.png

Here is my squad I've been handed with and it don't look to bad at all, the Brazilians look great and the assistant has rated them all quite highly so i may sell a few and hopefully make some money to bring in the players i want.

The League

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/MrJK1/ABCDEFGH/league_zps7ceac3d4.png
