My Sincerest Apologies to the readers of this thread. My internet went down for the longest time so I never got around to updating this. I'm going to try to update this relatively soon. With FM10 coming out soon I'm itching to play me some futbol !
Poorly played game. We took 10 shots, only 2 on target. So the only shots on target ended in the net. I wish we could get more chances, especially against Asian minnows in Indonesia. We only had 52% of the possession, when we should have had much much more. I've gotta find out how to fix that. But I can't be mad, we won and beggars can't be choosers. In the 3 times I've played Indonesia, I've had two draws and that was my first win.
So with that Asian World Cup Qualifier win heres the table:
Bhutan - 8
Qatar - 7
Australia - 7
Iran - 6
Indonesia - 0
Pretty solid game through and through. Great job of cleaning up in the back. Only 4 shots on goal though, but half of them went in. Effective. So no complaints from me on a win, and I keep my first place spot.
Next Game is June 8th against Australia. That one will be very very tough.
Congrats, is an amazing idea for a game. I saw a thread on the SI forums. To take over a small nation, but to edit their youth and training facilities to top notch and also an academy.
I edited all San Marino teams, and also the San Marino club in Serie C. I then took over of San Marino, lost every game in the World Cup qualifiers. But have beaten Hungary and lost to Finland in the Euro qualifiers, but with a group including Russia, Germany, Croatia and Montenegro. Qualification is way out of reach for a squad filled with two season's worth of young regens.
Beautiful game. Changlimithan was sold-out, 15,000 strong. Ratu scored two accidental goals. He launched a corner that just swung in, the next he tried to but in a cross and it swung in. The defense was solid and the possession favored me largely. Once again we had 14 shots with only 4 on target. That has to stay down, but hey I beat Australia so I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.

I knew it was going to be a tough Away Game but we were completely and utterly outclassed. No attack what-so-ever and a completely outclassed defense. Lucky it wasn't 50-0. God dammit, we better regain form. If I miss the WC now I will be ******.
Not a bad performance by the team just a poor one by the GK. He was a real ****** in this one, he put in a 4.3 rating. He should have only conceeded one not 3. The good news is that I qualified for the World Cup!!!!!!!!! The final table looks like this:
World Cup Asian Qualifying Section Final Group A: Australia - 16 Bhutan - 15 Iran - 15 Qatar - 7 Indonesia - 4
^ I beat out Iran on Goal Difference. Top 2 make it to the WC the 3rd has to play a playoff.

Next Game is in September, a Friendly v.s. Brazil away. Then I have my yearly rivalry match against Nepla. This year it's in Kathmandu
Robinho 7' Ratu 35', 79' Kaka 45+1' Anderson 49' ***-Lay 90+1'
Wonderful game. Terrible defence, marvelous offense. ***-Lay's late minute equalizer nearly made me cry. Thing of beauty. Outclassed in talent but easily the best in tactics. Suck on that one Dunga. Bet he gets canned now. Now I have Nepal away. Should be a win....I hope.
(***-Lay's 40th Cap and Ratu's 25th Goal.)

Wow!!!!!! I'm ******. Nobody talk to me. We lost to Nepal!!!! Our Arch Rivals, by 2 goals. I'm ******. Time for a selection change. New squad, new tactic, maybe even a new assistant. I'm ticked.
