Let The Hunt Begin


So guys hi,this me doing another story cause the other one is deleted just for the people who missed the previous post the story is me wandering in europe and trying to win everything basically,there was a vote earlier and the winner was FC porto so How about a little introduction from our old beloved wikipedia So let's start:
The club was founded in 1893 by a wine merchant, António Nicolau de Almeida.[7] The original stadium still exists (the field of constitution), currently serving the formation of the club, under the name Dragon Force.

FC Porto's nickname, "Dragões" (Dragons), as well as the name of their stadium, Estádio do Dragão (Dragon's Stadium), is related to the club's coat of arms. Until 1922 the club's emblem was a blue football with the letters FCP in white. That year, one of the club's players thought of combining that emblem with the city of Porto's coat of arms at the time. These arms, given by Queen Maria II in 1837 (subsequently altered in 1940), had a quartered shield, showing in the first and fourth quarter the arms of Portugal, and in the second and third quarter the Virgin Mary holding the Child Jesus. The crest of the Royal House of Portugal was a dragon holding the motto "Invicta" (undefeated), surrounded by the collar of the Order of the Tower and Sword, Portugal's highest honour, bestowed on the city by the queen after the undefeated siege of July 1832 – August 1833. Still today the official titles of the city of Porto are: "Antiga, Mui Nobre, Sempre Leal e Invicta" (ancient, very noble, always loyal and undefeated), and to this date, the city is often referred to in Portugal as "a (cidade) Invicta" (the undefeated [city]). The colours of the club may likewise be inspired by the historical colours of Portugal: until the overthrow of the Monarchy in 1910, the Portuguese flag was blue and white (instead of the modern green and red) with the coat of arms of Portugal in the centre, crowned by a royal crown.

Blah,Blah,Blah Really No offense to anyone what did catch my attention is that the club founder was a wine merchant !!
That Means free Booze to everyone!!
oh and also the clubs financial state is really bad ! so will have to keep it easy with the signings

Liga Zon Sarges : 25 Times!!

Probably the most wanted and expensive player in porto,without him the team really declines in term of attacking movement

Nicolas Otamendi

A very young and promising center back hoping that he and rolando could hit it of and form a unbreakable defence

[/h2] Transfers, Friendlies And Best Eleven [/h2]
Hello lads and welcome to the second of many updates ( I hope :) ) so this update is about the transfers and the friendlies which aren’t really that big a deal cause the club is poor and the friendlies were easy so let’s start first with my tactical approach to this season:

Tactics






Transfers IN

This Transfer window was about the necessary transfers only trying to chop of the dead wood for profit So let’s get going with the deals:
Granit Xhaka

A wonderkid CM who can also Play CAM And if trained can play a LM/LAM/RAM/RM so He’s the ultimate tool ;)
Current Ability:
Potential Ability:
Price Tag: 4.1 Million

Vaclav Kadlec

Another wonderkid, he’s a striker but can play as left wing so he will be useful as i switched hulk to the right flank
Current Ability:
Potential Ability:

Price Tag:5 Million

Total Money Spent:9.1 Million

Transfers out

Cristian Sapunaru To Torino for 1.6 Million
Walter to Leverkusen for 2.3 Million

Transfer money gained : 3.9 Million

Net Transfer spent:6.2 Million

This Good with some money for qualifying for the UCL and the Euro Super cup and the Portuguese super cup will make profit by the end of the month

Friendlies

Porto 4-0 Porto reserves
Hulk
James Rodrigues
Fredy guarin (2)

Porto 5-0 Tigres
Kadlec
Rodrigues
Fredy guarin
Walter
Maicon

Cruziero 0-2 Porto
Varela
Guarin

Villarreal 0-1 Porto
Kleber
Decent wins didn’t concede a single goal so that proves our defence toughness

My Best Eleven To start with next season


Not really much to deal with really but with kadlec and hulk and J.Rodriguez i think i have a deadly attack

So that’s it for now lads, there will be an update today
with the signing of vaclan kadlec you should have looked at his composure and concentration stats because they are both terrible . and as a striker there 2 very important attributes
#60080 toonman8589 : with the signing of vaclan kadlec you should have looked at his composure and concentration stats because they are both terrible . and as a striker there 2 very important attributes
i Did notice that but i was in desperate need for a striker and he's one of the best young ones around but still with low composure he don't bottle chances really he scores most of em
Interested to see how your 1st season turns out. You've done well with little funds to get 2 wonderkids so early on , I wouldn't worry just yet about the composure stats etc being so low as they will progress as he gets older and gains experience. Porto have a decent squad and your tactics look nice so you could be on to a winning side there.

August’s Update

http://media.vivanews.com/images/2011/02/24/105620_pemain-fc-porto.jpg
The Beginning ,this will be my introduction to the FC Porto Fans so i’m hoping to make a good impression, this month is also important to this story cause I can get the chance to win two trophies due to porto getting involved in the Supertaca Which is like the Portuguese community shield and the Euro SuperCup against Barcelona which will be a hell of a match and the league which is basically a walk in the park looking at the other 15 teams.

Super Taca – First Of many

http://fcporto24.com/basedados/imagens/1343119753.jpg
Porto 5-0 Vit.Guimaraes
Hulk (2)
Maicon (2)
Kadlec

First trophy retained, Hulk went mad and kept scoring and assisting and got man of the match ,Kadlec made his debut scoring a goal and silencing his critics (*cough* Bad composure )

Vit.Guimaraes –the only easy day was yesterday

Vit.Guimaraes 3-4 Porto
James Rodrigues
Nicolas Otamendi (2)
Hulk

This Was a entertaining game really ,but not for me of course as I watched my porto side take the lead and the lose it 5 minutes later but thanks to Otamendi’s 93th minute winner I got a proper debut so let’s keep it going

Rio ave- Double Fours

Porto 4-0 Rio Ave
Otamendi
Hulk
James Rodrigues
Own Goal

Good win but not too interested really cause I have Barcelona next in the super cup

Barcelona – that’s Football GET USED TO IT!

Barcelona 1-0 Porto

Lionel Messi

They only had one shot on target , and we had the weirdest goal chalked off but that’s football !

Vit.Setubal – He’s Back on his Scoring Form!


Vit.Setubal 0-2 Porto

Top of the league! Undefeated it’s amazing ! that’s the end of the month
