    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    The season is coming to an end and we are so close to the promotion places, just one point standing between us and Auxerre. We pretty much nailed at least a playoff position but hopefully we can go for more in the last three games.

    The race is really on now... Lets see if we can make this happen!

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Won't be to unhappy with the way things went in March. With only three games played we got 7 points from them and didn't concede a goal to consolidate our place in the playoffs and reduce the gap to the top two which are automatic promotion to Ligue 1. Can we sustain this pace?

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Don't have a lot of experience with takeovers in FM20 but just got this message in the inbox. Not sure it would go through but it would be interesting if we got one and what will it emply for our recruitment restrictions.

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    A February in which we were undefeated in the league games winning three of them (Orleans, Chateauroux, Lorient) and drawing with two games (Guingamp, Niort). We are still 4th in the league but actually managed to reduce the gap to the first position to just 7 points and secured our playoff...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Something to be excited about in waiting for the summer as it could be that we have a decent first youth intake. Will have to take that with a grain of salt though as our standards in both facilities and coaching are not the best, so what looks promising to us might be just mediocre by top Ligue...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    We are out of the Cup but I can't be to disappointed as we took Nice to extra-time before being defeated. In the league we took 7 points out of the possible 9 and are sitting in 4th place in the league. Lens has yet to lose a game, but their lead at the top to Nancy and Auxerre is not that...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Talk about financial fair play in Ligue 1. PSG holds the three most expensive transfers of the winter window in French football, the cherry on top being Sergi Roberto bought for 75M from Barcelona. How can the other teams compete with them though? How are we to do that with only regional...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    It seems that our performance so far were enough to convince the board that we deserve a new contract. No immediate pressure from it as they still want mid-table, but it is good to have re-assurance of the confidence in us.

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    We recovered a bit in December. Although we are out of the league cup (Montpellier proved to be to strong for us) we continue in the Cup (beating neighbors from Annecy) and won all three matches in the league (Troyes, Caen and Le Mans) to send us back into the playoff places.

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    A rather poor month by our standards as we haven't managed to win a single league match, drawing with Sochaux and Paris FC and losing with Auxerre and Clermont to drop down to 8th in the league. We are now 13 points apart from league leaders Lens and need to recover fast. We managed to pass one...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    We need serious improvements in our youth department if we are to be competitive on the long run. As it stands our second team is lingering in mid table mediocrity of the reserves competition, and there are no real youth prospects for the future. Hopefully the first youth intake which will...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    October was a month in which we went undefeated, the biggest upset coming in the League Cup were we somehow managed to win away at a Ligue 1 club - Amiens. In the league we were not as successful as we only managed two boring draws away from home. After 11 matches we are sitting in 5th place...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Our finances are not terrible yet but they are going on a downhill direction, mainly due to the low incomes we are generating. Hopefully we will not bleed to much this season...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Due to the international break (in which our players had no major role) we only had three matches in September and manage to win two of them. Our attendances at home are still pretty low, despite of us thrashing Niort 4-0 only around 5,7k people showed up to the match.

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Playing on FM Touch also means that I have to worry less about the staff at the club, as I only have one man in each department. Currently they are pretty decent for Ligue 2 level (well maybe except the Chief Scout but considering the restrictions I have set myself might not be that important).

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    A good start of the season. We have passed through two stages of the League Cup against fellow Ligue 2 teams (Valenciennes and Rodez). We are also undefeated in the first 5 league games, but we only won two of them (Chambly and Chateauroux) for a position at the upper end of the table in the...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Before the official start of the season we are predicted to finish 15th, just in mid-table mediocrity. Way behind league favorites Lorient, Guingamp or Lens.

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    Mixed results in the pre-season, but won't be to bothered about it as we rotated a lot and I tried to get to know all the players with their strengths and weaknesses. Of course we were not a match for top clubs such as Fenerbahce and Sheffield United (no idea how we got them to travel to...

    Football in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - A regional challenge

    These are the three players who joined our club on loans this summer. All 3 of them come from Ligue 1 teams, and are not going to be first options but rather rotations allowing us to offload some of deadwood (if anyone would take them). I guess we can best describe them with '"not great, not...
