  1. Hamburger SV is back in top flight! After a great first season at the club, Kuijk managed to achieve something big at Hamburg. He brought the struggling fallen giant back to the top flight! In his 38 game season, Hamburger won 24 games, drew 10 and lost 3, scoring 53 goals whilst conceding 21. Needless to say, Kuijk did a great job with a very limited squad. After becoming the 2. Bundesliga champions, he has been granted an 88 million euro transfer budget to strengthen the squad for the upcoming Bundesliga season. Player of the season The HSV player of the season has got to be Matias Arezo! The 17-year old striker showed that he has everything to become a world class player and outperformed many experienced players. He scored a total of 16 goals from 35 games and also chipped in with 6 assists. Team of the season The best performing HSV players were : In goal, Daniel Heuer Fernandis On leftback, Josha Vagnoman On rightback, Ignazio Abate The central defence of Rick van Drongelen and Gideon Jung In central midfield : Adrian Fein and David Kinsombi On the left wing, Jairo On the right wing, Xavier Ameachi At attacking midfield, Rayan Cherki The striker, Matiás Arezo Transfers For transfers, HSV has been scouting the transfermarket for diamonds in the rough. They also got rid of a lot of useless players so they could improve their weight budget. 16 contracts were not renewed, granting the players a Bosman transfer to another club. Berkay Özcan, one of the talents at the club left on loan to Belgium, where he will join top club Club Brugge in order to further develop. Timo Letschert, Jeremy Dudziak, Stephan Ambrosius, Lukas Hinterseer and Ewerton left the club on transfers, gaining another 11.75 million euros to strengthen the first team. Big name signings HSV has signed two big names! Both Juan Mata and Danny Rose joined the club on a free transfer after their contracts at both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur expired. Both players will be used first and foremost as a mentor to the younger players. A lot of young talent was signed too! Chumi - FC Barcelona Roberto Massimo - VfB Stüttgart Felix Agu - Osnabrück Adrian Fein - FC Bayern Gian-Luca Itter - SC Freiborg Yann-Aurel Bisseck - 1.FC Köln Japhet Tanganga - Tottenham Hotspur Matty Longstaff - Newcastle United This leaves HSV with a very young and ambitious squad, ready to make their mark in the Bundesliga against the likes of Eintracht Frankfürt, vfl Wolfsburg, Schalke, Dortmund and FC Bayern.
  2. Oh truth! Then it must be Wout Weghorst. Only other player I can remember....
  3. I feel the player might be Boadu? He recently scored on his U21 debut against Portugal. The club is obviously Marseille.
  4. I like these kinda saves! Curious to see where you end up 😄
  5. First evaluation of Kuijk's progress at Hamburger SV So far, Kuijk has led Hamburger SV in 11 official games, of which 10 were in the 2. Bundesliga and 1 in the DFB-Pokal. His total win loss record so far is 7 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. The only loss Hamburger SV suffered thus far is a 1-0 loss away from home against league leaders 1.FC Nürnberg. Since the loss at August 5th, Kuijk has signed a new rightback and a new striker. Milan legend Ignazio Abate has joined the German squad on a free transfer after not being given a new contract bij AC Milan. Exciting prospect, Matías Arezo joined the Germans from River Plate for a 14.25 million euro fee! Since then he has played 9 games in which he scored 3 and chipped in with 1 assist for his team. Rating the signings : Matías Arezo The young prospect played 9 games for HSV. In these games he scored 3 and assisted one. Considering the lad is still only 16-years old, it's very exciting to watch him progress. His average match rating in those 9 games was 7.11 Carlos Álvarez The young right winger was immediately loaned to Jahn Regensburg in the 2.Bundesliga to gain some first team experience. He has only played one game so far in which he scored a 7.00 rating. Rolando The veteran has been one of the best affordable options in the HSV defense. He's been the heart of the defense ever since his first game. He played in all of Kuijk's official matches and achieved an average 6.81 rating. In all those matches, HSV only conceded 4 times, which shows that Rolando was a great signee! Ignazio Abate The Milan legend has only played 4 games so far in which he got 2 yellow cards already. His 7.00 rating shows that he has made an impact in Hamburg's defensive forces. In all games he started, Hamburg only conceded once. Ozan Kabak This young Turk is of course a very exciting prospect, but has a lot to learn. Being under the wing of veterans like Rolando and Abate, the youngster will look to improve his skill. He played 9 matches in which he showed very average performances, amassing a 6.77 rating The finances Kuijk has surely invested a lot of budget into the squad. In total, HSV has spent 16.25 million euro's on incoming transfers for both Arezo and Álvarez. The other signings were on a free transfer. HSV only sold Tom Mickel to Dutch side RKC for a 1 million euro fee, leaving the net spending on transfers at 15.25 million. HSV is still financially safe with a remaining 3.96 million euro transfer budget and a remaining 23.000 euro wage budget. HSV Top Player
  6. The headlines are clear. Van Kuijk has signed with Hamburger Sport-Verein. A former great manager joining a former great club. Both parties are looking to return to their former levels. Objectives Reach promotion to the Bundesliga Expand youth scouting Tactics The tactics are a 5-2-2-1 formation. The key to this formation is to have a striker that puts a lot of pressure in the opponent build-up play. After he's won the ball, he brings the wingers in a scoring position. The wingers are instructed to overlap to make room for the wing backs. The wingbacks provided crosses. We're looking at a counter attacking formation. Since it's second league football, we need to ensure results, not attractive football. We play with a deep lying defense. Transfer(s) Rolando This 33 year old centre half had a phenomenal career reaching 21 international caps, 341 club games at clubs like Porto, Napoli and Olympique de Marseille. He's signed a 2-year deal, finishing his career trying to bring glory back to Hamburg. Ozan Kabak This 19 year old centre half is a youngster from the Schalke 04 academy. Looking for a place to get some first team action, he joined Hamburger SV on loan until the end of the season. Kabak is a very good header of the ball. He has the tendency to always get in the right position. Carlos Alvarez Playing in Sevilla B at only 15 years old, Carlos Álvarez is an exciting prospect for the future. The young energetic right winger packs a big punch with good pace and a lot of area for him to get better. After signing on a 1.9 million transfer to Hamburger SV, he was loaned out to Jahn Regensburg, who also play in 2. Bundesliga. The competition The 2. Bundesliga is a tight competition with some former big teams. Hamburger SV aims to win the 2. Bundesliga. But there will be a couple of teams that are right up there. Among them are : VfB Stuttgart Arminia Bielefeld VfL Osnabrück These teams are probably the toughest opposition for HSV, although we shouldn't have much issues getting promoted. Key players Julian Pollersbeck This 24 year old goalie has huge talent. His strong agility and reflexes make him one of the strongest keepers in the league when it comes to 1-on-1 situations, although he still has a lot to learn in terms of bringing the ball back into play. Rick van Drongelen The 20 year old centre half joined from Sparta a couple of seasons ago and is one of the most exciting prospects in the 2. Bundesliga. His positioning, aerial, tackling and power make him a very dominant appearance in HSV's back three. Lukas Hinterseer The Austria international has only joined HSV this season. With 12 caps to his name and 305 official league appearances he is a very experienced striker. He'll be looking to achieve the same statistics he had at VfL Bochum, 32 goals in 62 games.
  7. And I got fired, last game before Christmas! Glory was not restored and this very short but yet frustrating career is over
  8. I helped Feyenoord get their first away win in Amsterdam in 14 years though. I'm a nice guy😂
  9. November 2018 I'm sorry guys, my sister just bought a house, so we're working very hard. Didn't have much time for FMM. Anyway, it's November first 2018 and unfortunately, the season hasn't been going too well for this Ajax. We started off great, beating Sturm Graz and Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League qualification. In the playoffs, we lost on aggregate against Benfica. This resulted in Ajax being in the Europa League group stage, along with Krasnodar, FCSB and Bordeaux. Normally, this group should be a walk in the park. Form Unfortunately, we haven't been quite on point when it comes to finishing matches. The season started out really promising, with a lot of wins on our hand, but later on, we started wasting games. This has to do with a lot of careless finishing and bad defending. Our main striker, Kasper Dolberg got injured for 3 months, making it harder for the group to score goals. Great start to the season Aaaaaaaaaaaand it's gone The Eredivisie isn't going too well, coming in 9th.... At least we're topping our European group... Goals At the start of this career, I set some first season goals for myself. Let's see how they're going so far! Win the Eredivisie Not very likely to happen. Get through the European group stage Debut 2 new players from Jong Ajax - Brian Brobbey - debut against FC Volendam in a Dutch Cup game. - Nicolas Kühn - debut against Heracles Almelo in an Eredivisie game Expand scouting in Southern America. Nothing special found yet. The supporters at Ajax are already singing songs to me! Their most favorite one is : "You're getting sacked in the morning".
  10. Why would you use wing backs with a false 9? No one is gonna head that ball in goal. The main thing you want is your wingers to cut inside and your attacking midfielder ( shadow striker ) to have a free role, allowing him to make runs anywhere on the front line. So far, it's been working out quite well for me except for Champions League games. I bought this guy on my first save with Feyenoord. He really did well. The downside is that I don't play an actual attacking midfielder. My attacking midfielder is a shadow striker ( in this case I retrained Dolberg to play as CAM ) and not a playmaker. Although when I see this guys' stats, he's gonna be banging goas in.
  11. Thanks! The colour of the kit doesn't matter here, luckily.
  12. Ajax Amsterdam. The biggest and richest club in the Dutch Eredivisie. They have a superb youth academy which has produced some all-time greats like Johan Cruyff, Patrick Kluivert, Wesley Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, In the modern age, they still have some of the world's biggest talents, with the likes of Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Ryan Gravenbergh. Even though the club has the best squad, the most money and the best youth facilities, they haven't won a single trophy in the past 5 years and the role they've played in Europe has been limited, aside from their wonderfull 2017 campaign in which they reached the Europa League final. Time to restore the club to it's former glory! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Goals Of course, the Ajax Board of Directors have set some goals for the 2018/2019 season. I will also add some myself : Win the Eredivisie Get through the European group stage Debut 2 new players from Jong Ajax Expand scouting in Southern America. Tactics For the tactics, I chose an ancient approach, made famous by Johan Cruyff. The diamond formation. I will play 4 at the back, with 2 full-backs and 2 ball-playing defenders. 4 in midfield, in a diamond with a Deep-Lying Playmaker at CDM, 2 Advanced Playmakers in Central Midfield and a Shadow Striker at CAM ( false 9 ). Up front, I will have 2 Inside Forwards . Players to watch There's a lot of young talent at the club and some have potential to become truly world-class. There's several players I expect to carry the team throughout the campaign in both European and national competitions : Hakim Ziyech. With his creativity and great passing ability, he has everything it takes to be a key player throughout the season, providing both goals and assists. Matthijs de Ligt This young central defender is tipped to become the best defender of the new generation. I expect him to be an important part in build-up and transition play, as well as keeping the defense on lock. Frenkie de Jong He has everything he needs to succeed. He can direct the play, make intelligent runs and score goals. I expect him to be a true creative force in the team. Kasper Dolberg He's been called everything so far. The new Dennis Bergkamp should be key in scoring goals throughout the season. After a bad 2017/2018 campaign with lots of injuries, he should retaliate this season.
  13. Wow, that looks very good! Thanks for the tip, this should help me. Signing South-American talents is a straight up pain in the butt this game. The Dutch league never had work permits, but now they all of a sudden have them.
