Soccer Manager 2018 Out Now

Pescara Calcio (Fish Club)

Recommended Posts

"So, who doesn't like a fish?" Sorry I must apologize, this thing is definitely not around fishes, it sounds like it though.

So we do have a RTG and it's a team who were recently relegated and are now hoping to get back up to the big time, and automatic promotion. Pescara. And i promise that i do not make fish references in this whole type up. Lets start with the squad and consider a few things:

Pigliacelli and Fiorillo are 2 very good goalies one could be what you realise as a flop (sorry Vincenzo,) but they are similar in value and ability and it will be a battle to fight for their place in goal. The question is if we can do with one more though...

The centre backs are freakin OLD Bovo, Campagnaro, and Stendardo are 34-37 years old. All in that range, and they take up a hefty chunk of the wage bill so we are to sell all of them. Easy. We will have to replace them though. There is another CB of 32 years of age, Coda, but i will sell him next season.

Limited options in midfield and strikers Considering we do have more defenders than strikers and midfielders, we knew this would always be a problem so i went about rotating the reserves and the first team and the outcomers are people transfer listed(Bovo, Campagnaro, Stendardo, as well as rossi, milicevic and prioetti, as i am not using dmc's, just cm's and forwards.) I have replaced them with the following out the reserves:

perrotta,carilo,selasi,barba and forte all joined. They are around 350-500k value but can have decent potential. They remain on standby.

Bring... Them.... Home.... Because of the relegation, Zuparic,Biraghi, vitturini and mitrita have all been out on loan, but i cant call them back right now, which is sad.

The good news is, we get 10m in sales I hope that you reading can help me with suggestions but i have already made a signing in the centre back position. I could not get players from Italy as they were either on loan or on high wages. So i signed Icelandic international, Hordor Magunsson for 1.7m so he can slot into the lineup for now. Unfortunately, i will need help on positions that i will mention last on the update.

I only had time to play one friendly game against Cittadella, but let me tell you, the new overview is SICK in 3D, instead of the boring 2D. And this was the starting lineup in a 4-3-3(note that magnusson arrived after the game):

Fiorillo,Crecenzi,Fornasier,Coda,Zampano,Benali,Brugman,Valzania(en loan),Ganz,Cocco,Baez(en loan)

TACTICS: Tackle Normal, Passing Mixed, tempo normal, Mentality normal, attacking mixed, Press all over

The closest i could get was a 4-3-1-2 to include 3 forwards, so i put the player with the highest passing into the CAM spot(Ganz.)

After match, i was thinking "Jesus!" We won 5-0. 5-0. Pettinari got two from the bench, benali got one and Ganz got 2 from the CAM role. It was Ganz and benali which stood out most aswell, and they couldbe so important in the push for promotion.

The last thing I wish to mention is the youth system, which i spent all 10 points on in making it better, so we could have some talents(or some people could think im mad.)

Thank you for taking time to read this and can you please comment on players i could sign for this season in these positions:

Striker,CM, CB and GK

We have potential 16m to spend so it would be important to have a good idea of who to go for, and it will take the help of you guys.

Thanks a lot,

P.S after I realised that last year the skit I did with Union Berlin in Soccer Manager 17 forums made me the second most popular lower league manager (after a guy doing Cadiz) and the third most popular in the section overall, I will make this overall topic a very long one. Four or five seasons perhaps. One season will run in 5 updates on this forum:

The schedule start (August to mid October), run to end of year(mid October to January),Transfers(January) Post Window (February to March), and run in (April to end of season.)

So i pasted it twice. Im so sorry. But a few transfers I made are:

Modou Diagne for 1.8m(Nancy) Good technicals but I feel this is more of a panic buy, will still grow and can challenge for starting lineup.

Ben Pearson for 1.9m(Preston) What a buy this will be. 22 years of age, the former Man United player has a very good denfensive side to him, very aggresive(someone give him a red card), but has very good passing and a awesome long shot on him.

Moses Odjer for 1.1m(Salernitana) Interesting one, but we do have some good stats for a box to box mid. At 20 years of age and with good work rate and ball control already. He can fill in when needed. Which is a good time to reveal that Selasi is out for 3 months with a torn achilles. Yeah, how your luck here?

Lucas Joao for 2.2m (Sheffield Wednesday) Record signing, and is extremely strong, and could actually work for us. And again, the side im getting him from is Sheffield Wednesday. Yeah, theyve been in the news havent they.

I will now sim to October 15 and update then. Feel free to leave ideas for players i could scout for January. Or even a goalie i could sign.
