Career Jeroenvk94's last run


Recommended Posts

The club

AFC Bournemouth, formed in 1899. They had a long road to the highest level, struggling to stay in the lower leagues without relegation. But April 27th of 2015, Bournemouth finally made it to the Premier League. The biggest and toughest competition of them all.

Some of their star players, Wilshere, Gradel, Wilson, Arter, Francis and Boruc were key in the 9th place that Bournemouth managed to seal in real life. However, it is time for Jeroenvk94 to do it better.
Ladies and gentlemen, hold on, stay seated and enjoy my final run of FMM 2017, this career will not be focusses on one club alone, so if I get fired, I'll just join a new club. This is about building my reputation as a manager.

My philosophy

I'm Dutch, so I know a lot about attacking and attractive football, because you know, we invented it :P
I like to play dominant on the opponent's half, which is going to be hard to do considering Bournemouth doesn't have that good of a squad.

We're going to play in a 4-3-1-2 formation. Which means 4 defenders, three central midfielders, one attacking midfielder and two strikers. I'll get to the explanation of that tactic further in this post.

tactics.png.fd444ca41cff43caa7674e17a7ee7544.png

First let's get to the squad roles ( not the one in this picture! )

Goalkeeper

As I'm not playing a counter attacking tactic, this is the most solid option. Add the fact that my keeper is 36 years old and getting slower, and you'll get why I choose a normal goalkeeper.

Wing Backs

I'm not playing with wingers. So my wingbacks have to get some crosses into the penalty area. It's not that dangerous if the go up front, you'll see when I explain the formation I chose.

Central Backs

Slow defenders who just do their thing and not that much more.

Deep Lying Playmaker

Or as we sometimes call it, the '6'. He needs to cut out the passing lines when the opponent is in posession. Whenever we are in posession, he should always be unmarked so he really has to be able to read the play and anticipate his opponents. We need an intelligent player here.

Advanced Playmaker

Whenever the DLP has the ball, the AP has to make an intelligent run to receive the ball. From there he has to reach my strikers or my wing backs.

Box-to-box midfielder

They are always usefull. We need someone with a high work rate, I might know a guy or 2 for that position :)

Advanced Forward

Wilson is only gonna be useful if he gets to use his speed. I want him to get behind their back 4 and get in the goals.

Deep Lying Forward

He is gonna be my main target for attacks. He has to receive the ball, hold on to it and then play it through to my Attacking Midfielder, Wingbacks or Striker.

Now that we've got most squad roles covered, let's get to the explanations of my philosophy.

I play 4-3-1-2 so that I can play posession football. Playing 4 midfielders always gives you an advantage as most opponents will play 3 or even 2 midfielders. Due to this, I'll always have one free player on the midfield, who can make intelligent runs and passes. Because I have 3 central midfielders laying back a bit, it's safe for my wingers to go up front, because the midfielders can cover up their position while the wing backs are attacking. The most important thing in this tactic is having players who read the game, with high passing, creativity and decision stats. My forwards need good positioning stats as they'll try to get behind the defence often, we need them to stay onside to bag them goals!

I hope this covered the tactical playing field. If you have tactical questions, please ask them, the total football system is quite complicated, so some decisions may seem strange. 

More to come soon....

Potential transfer targets

The Bournemouth midfield is doing fine. With the likes of Wilshere, Arter, Cook and Gosling playing in midfield, we´re not likely to need much midfield additions. However, a nice back-up player with some potential would be nice as the season is long.

Also, I'm eager to sign some defenders, a goalkeeper and a striker.

Marko Vejinovic - Feyenoord - 26 years old - M/AM C - Advanced Playmaker

This player is not really that important at Feyenoord. He's a decent free kick specialist, has green passing and movement stats and has decent shooting, crossing and creativity stats. In 185 career matches, he's scored 23 goals.

Simon Gustafson - Feyenoord - 21 years old - MC - Deep Lying Playmaker

This young Swedish player has lots of potential. His strength stats are in the greens, while the rest are solid blues all around. He might be worth taking a risk with a value of € 3.7m. Throughout his career he's scored 17 times in 83 games.

Aleix Garcia - Man City - 19 years old - AM C - Central Midfielder

He doesn't really fit the playing style role wise, but stat wise ( high movement, passing and creativity ) he should be a player to consider fo my squad. I'm keeping an eye on this guy. He's scored 4 goals in 38 matches.

Tahith Chong - Man Utd - 16 years old - AM RLC - Winger

Might be nice to use as back-up for Wilshere. Doesn't really fit in, but could be a nice cash cow in the future. He has not yet played any professional game.

Jairo Riedewald - Ajax - 19 years old - D/MC - Deep Lying Playmaker

This left-footed defensive midfielder has a bright future ahead of him. He isn't going to come cheap, but he will be worth it. He can dictate the tempo of a match and has already played 66 professional games.

Do you have any new targets, or any recommendations about these targets? Let me know ;)

Tahith Chong is class, if u have the right save. I'm planning a career with him. But tbh, the fact that ur with Bournemouth, a good smart player to link with Wilshere wld be best... I'm gonna have to say Veijnovic. Not to mention the youth in Lewis Cook. Personally, the young lads might help in the Long term and u shkd look for them in a bigger Budget, maybe next season.

Take a look at Roland Sallai AMRLC pick him up for 275k, if you don't play him too much he would easily resell for a lot more, he's performed very well for me a few times this year, other than that this looks great bud, also that fact I inspired this save is fun ?

I'm thinking to spend about 30 million at maximum. I don't use my wingers in my tactics, so I can sell them and make some profit ( like Fraser who is still 22 years old ).

I promised you I'd do it :P
Sallai looks really good. I never used him before. I can probably sell him for 10/15 million in 2 seasons :O

He immediately gets a chance to prove his value. Season opener against City and Wilshere is serverely injured...

Transfer Update!

The transfer period is over. I've managed to sell some players, so I could be able to buy new ones. 

My signings :

André Onana
This young goalie is tipped as one of the best to come. I signed him from Ajax for € 18.5 million.

Marko Vejinovic
As I stated in my scout reports, he looked solid. Bought him for € 6.5 million from Feyenoord.

Roland Sallai
He came over from Puskás Akadémia for € 350k. Thanks to @Brenty92. The player looks solid and already has a worth of € 10 million after 5 games :P

Bruno Zuculini
This youngling came on loan for the next season from Manchester City.

Leaving players

  • Max Gradel to Stoke for € 14.25 million
  • Ryan Fraser to Swansea for € 14.25 million
  • Matthew Neale to Portsmouth for € 850k
  • Lys Mousset to ESTAC Troyes on loan
  • Idris Zmimer to KV Mechelen on loan
  • Ben Whitfield to Gateshead on loan
  • Mihai Dobre to Chester on loan
  • Ryan Allsop to Sutton United on loan

The first Premier League games :

What I noticed is that my tactics are working quite well. We're keeping posession and are dominating games. However, we need to improve on actually finishing enough chances. We have performed really well against some top team, always having more than 52% posession.

  • Bournemouth 3-1 Leicester
  • Arsenal 1-0 Bournemouth
  • Bournemouth 1-1 Chelsea
  • Liverpool 2-0 Bournemouth
  • Watford 1-3 Bournemouth

We really did manage some decent results. I'm proud of the team. In the game against Chelsea we had 53% posession, with 10 shots of which 5 are on target. Chelsea only managed to get in 5 shots of which 2 were on target.

Loving the read so far, I am very interested to see how this 4-3-1-2 will do in the Prem. Sallai is a must buy if you are looking for a solid AP, for that price even more. I've managed to make him win the Ballon d'Or in a couple of seasons with my Palermo side retraining him forthe DLF role. Looking forward to this! Keep it up;)

Up to now, the results are more than decent. Drawing against Chelsea and only losing 1-0 against Arsenal ( undeservedly )

Indeed! If I can ask what are your instructions? Cause I usually play direct and narrow With my 4-3-1-2, I've found out that with more direct passing players will find through balls more often while still mantaining possession due to their position which is very close to each other. But then again I'm far from being a tactical master:laugh:

Attacking play with mixed passing through the centre. Short GK distribution, so we can build attacks from the back 4.

So, we've already progressed to January 2017. The first 4 months at Bournemouth have been unbelievable. We've mainly done our job very well and have produced great matches against the top teams in the Premier League.

As you can see we won against Manchester City and Liverpool and have had a decent EFL Cup run, only to be eliminated by Southampton. January time also means time for transfers, so I'll put my transfers down here.

Ryan Sessegnon
This 16-year old lef back has lots of potential. His first professional season at Fulham was awesome. My scouts noticed him on their youth assignments in the UK. He has lots of pace and a decent 14 crossing. He can also play as a winger if neccesary with 15 technique and decent creativity stats. His only downside is his strength, which is 8. We paid € 7.75M for his services.

Leaving players

  • Matt Butcher to Chester on loan
  • Ollie Harfield to Barrow on loan
  • Brad Smith to Rizespor on loan

The Premier League

The 4-3-1-2 tactic is clearly working as it should. Bournemouth have been performing great. The formation, player roles and instructions seem to be working together fine. We create a lot of chances and have lots of posession even against the top tier Premier League games. I can see in the games that my striker Wilson has been really important with his pace. He also makes intelligent runs and gets in 1v1 situations. Unfortunately his finishing hasn't been that good considering the amount of chances he got. His stand-in Joshua King, has also been great, scoring 10 goals in 23 players and delivering 5 assists to his teammates.

Benik Afobe has shown to be a clinical finisher, scoring 12 Premier League goals in 23 games.

In the back we're having major issues. The biggest issue is that I have too much left wing backs, and too many great goalkeepers. Onana has been terrific, having a lot of saves and almost every match we get the same feedback : 'impressive shot stopping'. I'm confident that the 21-year old will be one of Europe's best keepers within 5 years.

In the Premier League Bournemouth are currently in 7th place, which is great.
 

I'll see you at the end of the season!

PS : I 've updated the Trophy Cabinet and Notable Matches sections in post #2
