The JK Alphabet Challenge is back, I've been off FM for a while after doing a side project but decided i didn't have enough time to maintain it. I can't exactly remember where i was until i loaded it up and i just finished Bulgaria and now moved to Bolivia at a club called Bolivar, they are very rich for that league and not just on FM but in real life too and according to one of FMScout members they are like the Man City of Bolivia which is a good thing for me as I'm hoping for only one season here. Wish me luck!
Squad at the start of the season
Here is my squad for the forthcoming season, as usual there was some activity in the transfer market as they finished 2nd last season some changes needed to be made with the money they had available to them so I've managed to bring in some new faces and give the squad a new look and tactics which will hopefully become successful at the end of the season.
Transfers at the start of the season
Here are the transfers I've made until the start of the season, I could of made a little bit of money from the transfers i released but just the fact they had quite a bit of money rather than messing around i just released the players i didn't need and managed to spend around £4m on bringing players in, if i don't finish first this season I'm definitely getting the sack. As usual i adapted the signings/releases to my tactics which involved me releasing all DMs, WBL/R, AMC's.
Finances at the start of the season
Here are my finances after all the transfer activity was complete and it's still very healthy despite a loss of £3.78m and still 20k in wages even though my highest earner is only on £2.3k per week it's pretty difficult to attract any player of a good reputation due to the fact Bolivia doesn't really stand out as a brilliant nation to attract some of the best players, but as you know by now finances don't really worry me because it's usually spend as much as possible and win the league or face the music and completely mess the club up. Hopefully it's the first one.
My key player for the season
Not 100% which player to go for as I've basically signed quite a few players and haven't really got to know many of the players so i went with a keeper i signed from Oriente Petrolero for £275k as he was the highest rated by the assistant manager so hopefully he keeps plenty of goals out this season!
Here are the fixtures.
A great season finishing on 50 points 5 points clear of The Strongest who i expected to win the league in all honestly, after quite a few friendlies i gave my new squad plenty of time to gel giving us a great start to the season and i only lost 2 games all season which was pretty good and they was both against 2nd place so all the other games was a must win. Bring on the next country!
Squad at the end of the season
Everyone above the 7.0 rating apart from the two striker who never played which was a great achievement, they've all done extremely well and i actually enjoyed playing in Bolivia but as the challenges states, I must move on to the next country!
Key player of the season
Santiago Cusicanqui, remember that name he is absolutely quality and at only 23 years old i fully expect him to move on after another year or two, i will definitely try and sign him at another club if he accepts, absolute gem of a player for that league as his season panned out he became brilliant.
Finances at the end
Even richer than when i started! Maybe it's the fact they get so many fans each game which help and only having a small wage budget.
