CS Balotesti - from Liga II (Romania) to Champions League [Season III now]

Good to see the board backing you with investment into the clubs facilities! Hopefully this will help you take the next step and get a top half finish next year
Thanks, mate. I am at the half of the season but I am far away of the top half finish for the moment. :(
The third season is here. Media prediction is 16/20 for this year.

The board completed the youth facilities:

And I completed the coaching course. :D
View attachment 83116

The pre-season went very good with 6W, 1D and 1L.
View attachment 83115

But in the league I lost a lot of games...
View attachment 83114

BUT IT WAS A FANTASTIC YEAR IN THE ROMANIAN CUP, and we are in the quarter finals.

The clasament: place 13/20

The good things now come. I got an offer from Academica Clinceni. Of course, I rejected it.
View attachment 83111

I sold some players because they don't want to continue with my team. For example, the players of 22 years old wants more money/better teams, so I prefer to sell them and to buy 16 years old players.

Finances after an 200K board cash injection:

One of my youngsters, the AMC Clement Bonnet, got some amazing offers:

I sold him for 475K and 40 % percent from the next profit transfer (altough some teams accepted 500K but the player chose...)
View attachment 83107View attachment 83106
View attachment 83105

So the finances goes up and we got some improved training facilities!!!

Some more things are that the board incresead the junior coaching budget:

One more physio:

And National A license:

I hope to find some other good youngsters and to avoid the relegation again. xD
The third season is over and we stay up one more time with a fantastic young team!! We finished 10/20 (media prediction: 17).

I am for the first time in the top 3 Managers of the Year:
View attachment 83067

We lost in the quarter finals of the Romanian Cup with an amazing 1-5, after we lead with 1-0...
View attachment 83066

The finances look great and the wage budget rised from 400K to 663K (+190K for transfers).
View attachment 83065View attachment 83064

And some other awards for my team:
View attachment 83063View attachment 83062

We have to be better next year and maybe, with some good signings, we will atack the top 5. :D Totally, a nice season!
The fourth season arrived. :D It was a very good training camp, with 4W and 2L.
View attachment 82906

Altough last year we got in the Quarter Finals in the Romanian Cup, this year the young team had a very bad game...
View attachment 82905

The big salaries left the club and I bringed some youth guys.
View attachment 82904

I got the Continental C license:
View attachment 82903
And started the Continental B:
View attachment 82901

133 tickets sold. :D
View attachment 82902

Altough I believe that this year I got the very best team of all my 4 seasons, the media prediction says that I will finish 20 from 20. :O :O
View attachment 82900

The training and the staff from this year look very good.
View attachment 82899View attachment 82898

The facilities get better:
View attachment 82897View attachment 82896

And the board added some money.

I decided to remain at CS Balotesti.
I sold one more time all of my good players that get some offers. I am really mad that I didn't saw that Despotovic added in his contract a 200K release clause, because I was hoping to sell him with 500K+... so I had to sold him, because other I could risk to lose him for free.
View attachment 82858View attachment 82857

I got Continental B and I started studying for Continental A.
View attachment 82856View attachment 82855

Adding 16 years old youngsters in front of much more experimented 20-23 years old players was very bad for my second half in championship. Only 4W in 17 games. 5D and 8L...
View attachment 82854

So I finished 8/20.
View attachment 82853

For the second time I got the 3th place on Manager of the Year award.
View attachment 82852

I hope for a better next year. :D
A new season arrived. The 5th one. :D For this time I hope to finish again in top 10, altough it was not a very good transfers period for us. We didn't find so many good players to buy, we sold the players in the last year of contract who wouldn't continue here and we got a lot of money.

We have just 2 22years+ in the team and they want to leave. :( We buy them with one star, we make them great and they leave us. :(
View attachment 82835

Media prediction is 17/20. Better than last year + we sold the best 5 players from the squad.

Great friendly camp again. :D
View attachment 82837

And the Liga II salaries:
View attachment 82833

Great finances too:
View attachment 82832
After a fantastic 5 season, it comes a more amazing season: THE SEASON 6 - Meeting the Liga 1.

With some good transfers:
View attachment 82220View attachment 82219

It was a very interesting season. Why? Because Romania get 2 teams for UCL for the next season and 3 places for UEL. So, if a team catch the play-off (top 6), has a very big chance of getting to Europa LEague next season. :D
We were close, but we lost. And we finished 7th.
View attachment 82218

So we got to the Play-Out and, with a media prediction 14/14, we won the play-out!!!!!
View attachment 82217

Here are the matches:

View attachment 82214

It was a very good season for the romanian football, so for the next year the best team from the Liga I will automatically reach the Group Stage of Champions League:
View attachment 82212View attachment 82213

The main objective for the next year is reaching the top 6 and challenging the Euro Cup race!

We got some new sponsors:

And we look rich:
