Hi , welcome to my longest lasting save on FM13, we start in the beginning of the 2017-18 preseason and have just had a special season but first i'll get you up to date to whats happened in the first 5 seasons(H)

I took the job as manager of Roda as i felt they had potential to do something I have always wanted to do on FM and that's to win a league abroad . Her some screenshots showing how the team was set up in the first season and who was brought into the team.



As you can see i set up very defensively in a 4-4-1-1 and had found decent results in being direct in passing while mostly on the counter.








The offer for Mitchell Donald was too good to refuse and i happily replaced him with Tchoyi which i felt was a bargain , i also brought in a new goalie which was just a stop gap for my younger keeper to improve more and be ready for the first team next season .

Signing of the season

Prince Buaben - He settled really well in Holland and for the price i paid he was exquisite.:D


The Eredivisie

It was a fantastic season for us , we played out of our skins and really were great especially as we were predicted 14th at the start of the season .

The Dutch Cup

View attachment 317989


YESSS! Couldn't believe i had managed to win Roda the 3rd Dutch cup in their history! Even though i am unable to see the details of the final i can still remember Mr.Roda AKA Sanharib Malki scoring a double and Buaben scoring the winning penalty.


Season Review 2012-13

It was a season to remember as we lifted the Dutch cup for the first time since 2000 , it also meant that we qualified for Europe without playing in the dreaded European play-offs legs that Holland use (H)


We had a very successful year and now with expetation on my team i have to make sure next year is just as good!








This is my first attempt at a FM story , so please be kind!;)

After the success of last year we had our next task which was to prove that last season was not just a fluke . I noticed our budget at the time wasn't increased by much so i had to work on stealing players running out of their contracts and by picking up a bargain or two.


Transfers -Season 2013-14




Key Players


Lorenzo Burnet - My left side needed improvement and i felt that Lorenzo gave us that.
Rick Ten Voorde- My scouts and coaches didn't rate him but he scored 15+ goals for a mediocre NEC side so i took the chance.
Marco Vejinovic- To bag this boy for free was daylight robbery , he was also very close to being signing of the season but.....


Signing of the season
Paul Robinson - He was actually brought in just as cover as we were very low for CB's but what a season he had , the fact it was so unexpected was my reason for picking him as signing of the season.


Tactics


We set up in a 4-1-2-1-2 this year due to our increased firepower and lack of ability in the wide areas . We stay pretty direct and tried to be more in control of matches.


Dutch Super Cup

View attachment 317986
We played Ajax and gave it all we could but succumbed to a valiant 4-2 defeat.
Europa League

View attachment 317990
We were very unlucky in our draw and were up against a very good Udinese side , can take heart from only being defeated on away goals.


Dutch Cup
View attachment 317991

We were holders of the cup but we couldn't reach the same achievement this year going out to a quality AZ side . Congrats to Vitesse who defeated Twente 3-2 and stopped them from doing the double!


Eredivisie
View attachment 317992
View attachment 317993

Again was delighted with our elevated spot in the league , we managed to improve our position from the year before and also qualified for Europa League again without the play-offs due to coming 4th! It was a huge surprise to see Ajax down in 6th and Twente up in 1st with Heerenveen just two points off them!
Player of the season
Bart Biemans
He was rock solid at the back and was part of the strong spine in the team that made sure this year was a success


View attachment 317994
Season Review
We had another good season even though we were trophy less this year. We had managed to improve our league position to 4th and had done what my main target for the season was which was to qualify for the Europa League !

So in my first two seasons at Roda i had managed to win the Dutch cup and secure Europa League football both seasons. My main aim this year was to keep up the excellent standards we had set league wise and to get in to the group stages of the Europa League.

Transfers 2014-15


Michael Zullo- A very versatile players capable of playing any of the back 4 and central midfield areas. Every team needs this type of player

Danny Holla- Another player that i poached on the minute his contract went into its last 6 months, quality Defensive midfielder who will battle it out with Sutchin for DM this year

Samuel Galindo- Why Arsenal always let him go , i don't know , he is absolute quality and goes straight into the first team in the AM slot. Very close to being my signing of the season.

Signing of the season


Davide Petrucci - Man U were willing to let him go to me on loan and i am glad i did! The boy oozes with skill and is very versatile aswell . He had a great season and was signed up on a pre-contract half-way through the loan:)

Europa League


View attachment 318056

We were given a very difficult qualifier against Stade Rennais and were defeat at their ground 3-2 but we managed to win 1-0 at home to win on away goals!

We were in a group with Partizan, HSV and CSKA Moscow and while at the time of the draw it look tough , it was actually a pretty even group . Even Partizan who beat us twice! But we had done enough to qualify for the last 32!
View attachment 318058

Unfortunately that were the dream ended as a 1-0 defeat at home was the beginning of the end at we went out 4-1 on aggerate to a strong Fenerbache.


Dutch Cup



Once again we exited the cup at the 4th round , this time it was undeserved as we completely outplayed PSV but luck was on their side . Congrats to VVV Venlo who defeated Groningen 3-0 in the final!

Eredivisie 2014-15


Well the job was done . Just about. We actually finished on lower points that last year but still made 4th. I also feel that the Europa League definitely affected our performances league wise. Too many draws almost made us drop into the European play-offs but thankfully we managed to just squeeze above Vitese.

Ajax recovered from their horror season to win back the Eredivisie with PSV just missing out again.

Player of the Season

Marko Vejinovic


Was involved in everything we did offensively. Was very skillful and was the first name of the team sheet for the big matches . I also got him for free which made this even sweeter (H)

View attachment 318060


So i had managed to do greater in Europe than what i thought was possible in getting to the knockout rounds and thankfully our players did enough to ensure we were in Europa league for the third year in a row!

Here was the team of the year

Season Objectives

So this year we wanted to try and make the push for the Champions league , to do so we had to get into the top two which usually consisted of Ajax,PSV , AZ and Twente. I also hoped we could once again reach the group stages of the Europa League .

Transfers 2015-16




Rodney Sneijder - Guy was the sole jewel of a poor RKC side and i saw a future for him here. Fits in with our ambitions and can play CM and AML

Gus Joppen- A solid looking Rightback that would help tighten up my defense as we need to, to have any hope of the top 2

Mohammed Abu- His agent alerted me to his release and i honestly don;t know why anyone would release him , he is an accomplished DM and is only 23!

Florian Michaud- He is a young Frenchman , just recently released but he has bags of potential and i like the look of him!

David Iddi- Chelsea release the young keeper and i snatched him up . He has the ability to be far better than our current goalie.

Junior- Its the highesgt fee Roda JC have ever paid for a player but he is worth every penny. You dont find players like him everyday and he adds tons of ability to the team

Signing of the season

Jean-Christophe Ferrer-
The 20 year old was released from Lyon for about 10 seconds before i swooped in and signed him up. The boy his fantastic and is possibley the best free transfer i have ever done on FM


Dutch cup


Again, it was not to be . Frustrating to be knocked out on penalties again but sometimes luck isn't on your side. AZ went on to win the cup by beating Heerenveen 2-0 .

Europa League


View attachment 318062

We made mince meat of Locomotiv (Plodiv) in the first league and were able to field the 2nd team against them for the second leg.

View attachment 318063

This was an extremely close match that could of gone either way. We drew 2-2 at home which left us in a difficult position but our defense held firm in the second leg and we won 1-0!



We were annihilated in the group and didn't even managed a single win , the less said about this the better. We did achieve out goal of reaching the group stage though.

Eredivisie 2015-16






We failed to win any of our last 5 games which meant .....







We came second!!!!! but we had bottled the chance to win the league. With 5 games to go we were SIX points ahead alas we weren't able to keep our composure but what it did show me was that we had enough qulity to win the league next year with a few positions strengthened.

Player of the season

Samuel Galindo




He had an outstanding season , was fantastic in every game and it was no coincidence that we didn't win any of our last 5 and that he missed the last 5 games with injury!

View attachment 318066


Season Review

Well our season was amazing but it could of even better! We made our aims of reaching the group stages of the Europa League but we were utterly thrashed in it and we managed to get to the semi-final of the Dutch cup but again were defeated on penalties but most of all was that we led the Eredivisie for about 3 months and bottled it in the last 5 games!

Here is the team of the season!

Now I entered my fifth season with Roda and we are starting to become a force in Holland and a recognizable name in Europe. This year I hope to go further into Europe than before and qualify for at least the first knockout round of the Europa League and to continue our ascendance into the top 2 in Holland.

Transfers 2016-17



Samuel Galindo - i was robbed of Samuel as i had stupidly put 5 million release clause in his contact and Hull stole him in January.

Andre Texiera- A centre back that can also slot in at Right back and has good potential, One for the future .

Stefano Denswil -Felt we need a more accomplished CB so I brought Denswil in he played fantastic well.


Signing of the season

Diego Knapen- Was a player I have wanted for a while , he is only 19 when i signed him and is in Hollands main squad! He's worth 20 million forget 800k .





Dutch cup


The cup was never my main priority this year but we only say that when we get knocked out! We had a relatively easy progression till we reached Heerenveen who mugged us at home! Congrats to Twente who won the cup on pens against VVV Venlo

The screenshot of the Quarter Final match


Champions League



We had a valiant effort against a very powerful Galatasaray side and 4-0 wasn't the fairest result and we definitely redeemed ourselves in the home leg and i turn my intentions to Europa League.


Europa League



Groups went according to plan , Victoria Plzen were seeded above us but weren't anywhere near our standards neither were Malmo but Sevilla were far better opponents and did manage to beat us twice .
View attachment 318385






The first leg went amazing and we took a 1-0 lead to Turin but we after holding them to 1-0 at half time we then managed to get back to 1-1 but immediately we were pegged back and were 4-1 down when Malki scored a consolation for us.



Eredivisie 2016-17






Glory Glory Roda JC!!!!!!!!!! We've done it! No bottling it this time we were fantastically consistent and won the had it sealed with a game to double header against Ajax and the forever runners up PSV! We had the attacking edge we had lacked over the first 4 seasons and hopefully we can now move on from this and dominate the Eredivisie.

Player of the season

Issa Bakari

He was rock solid, played with far more composure than his age would suggest and he was instrumental in our title winning team.








Team of the season




Season Review

What can I say? We won the Eredivisie! We didn't buckle and i really do think we can go on from this to dominate Holland and make a real impact in Europe . We are a young side and i am confident of success if we don't sell our gems.




Now that we are up to date I will do mothly updates similar to some other stories . Thanks to anyone reading this it means a lot

So after winning the Eredivisie for the first time ever , our next challenge is to try and retain the title while really imposing ourselves in Europe . Firstly lets show what transfers I made and to that the chasing pack made


Transfers 2017-18



Matteusz Prus- Couldn't get a reasonable deal with his agent so he's gone but Backup Iddi does has greater potential

Jean-Guy Dumortier- Belguim's first choice Right back and hes only 19! Very solid defense now


Wouter Esser - Another fantastic looking CM , hes dutch and looks like he will play a big part in our challenge to retain the title




The competition Transfers



Vitesse spending alot as money as usual yet they rarely threat to win the Eredivisie. They did lose their best player to Ajax though.

I will give you a monthly update for August by Tomorrow .:)

Roda win their third trophy in five years but in the league we falter early on . On a good note the club managed to sell 9784 season tickets over 1000 more than last year.


Dutch Supercup

Roda 0-0 Twente Roda win 5-4 on pens




Buaben scores his 2nd cup winning penalty (5 years after his first) to give Roda their 1st Supercup . The match itself was tense but both teams did have a bit of rustiness to shake off.

Eredivisie


Utrecht 0-2 Roda
Luijuckx (s/o)
- Petrucci (7) , Malki (​


MoM- Davide Petrucci

Game started fantastically when Esser got his first assist on his debut , Utrecht then started to dominate but a silly tackle by Luijickx ended the game as a contest and we breezed it with Malki killing it off.

Roda 2-0 RKC
Junior(30,81)

MoM-Junior

We had a total of 31 shots to their 3 and we really controlled the match but i would of preferred it if we were more clinical. Unfortunately Petrucci got injured during the game and will be out for 6-7 weeks.



Twente 1-0 Roda
Heintz(34)

MoM-Ricky Van Haaren

We didn't take our chances and this time we were punished for it , a set piece led to Twente taking the lead but this was a match we dominated and I felt deserved more from. Even more annoying was Abu got injured and is out for 6 weeks.

Feyenoord 1-3 Roda
Ibarra (34) - Ferrer(60,63) ,Denswil(78)

MoM - Jean-Christophe Ferrer

The first half was dreadful and after we went a goal down I feared the worse but I tore into them at half-time and boy did they respond Ferrer had started the season poorly but really up his game he with two great goals . Big win



Month Review

We started August brilliantly by winning the Supercup and three wins in the league has given us a good start but there is worrying signs to be learned from aswell especially from the 1st half Utrecht , Twente and 1st half vs Feyenoord .





Player of the month

Wouter Esser - He has been the maestro behind our goals and with 3 assists from 3 games being a really good return especially when its his 1st month at the club!

Roda find good form to rise up the league with important result in domestic and European games!


Eredivisie

Roda 2 - 0 FC Oss
Ten Voorde (10,93)

MoM- Ten Voorde
Nice win at home against a weak Oss side , should and could of scored more.

Roda
2 - 0 NEC
Ten Voorde (pen 84)
Tannane (88)

MoM- Biemans

Fielded
a weaker team in this match and almost paid the price but two late and deserved goals keeps us ticking in the league.

PSV 1 - 2 Roda
Biemans(13)
Ferrer (16)

MoM- Ferrer

Get in! Really did well to beat PSV in their own back yard , We conceded our first goal of the month but all-in-all a great month in the league!



Dutch Cup


Roda 3 - 0 GVVV
Michaud (26)
Vejinovic(58)
Sneijder(81)

MoM- Joppen

Pretty standard win in the cup at home to a non-league side.


Champions League


Roda 0 - 0 Inter Milan

MoM- Juan

Well,well,well! We gave Inter a run for their money here and could feel a bit upset not to win, gives me confidence that we may make an impact in this group!





Month Review

Consistency was key to winning the title last year and will be again this year. Great results in the league including beating PSV means we are one of the early pace setters and the outstanding performance against Inter gives me hope that this may be the year we make an impact on the European stage!



Player of the Month

Rick Ten Voorde- Scored 3 vital goals that keep us heading in the right direction in the Eredivisie!

Another fantastic month for Roda in the league but things start to go pear shaped in Europe!

Eredivisie

Roda 2 - 1 Heracles
Burnet (27)
Malki (58)

MoM- Burnet

Should of been a lot easier than the scoreline suggests. We dominated for large parts but thankfully we held on at the end.


Vitesse 2-3 Roda
Junior (26)
Malki (43)
Denswil(67)

MoM- Denswil

What a game! , constant back and forth .Really the result could of gone either way. All goals were great play aswell.

Roda 3-1 Heerenveen
Ten Voorde(16)
Malki (44,54)

MoM-Burnet

Pretty standard game were we managed to get the goals our domination deserved been a bit leaky this month though.


Champions League

Porto 4-1 Roda
Petrucci(89)

MoM-Sandro

Got destroyed by Porto and the scoreline actually flatters us.


Roda 0-3 Barcelona

MoM-Messi


Messi is unstoppable. That is all

Month Review

We are on a brilliant run in the league which see us go top and we are scoring goals for fun. Unfortunately we are leaking goals in every game now and must sort this out, we also got destroyed in Europe by Barca and Porto but I expected that and it now looks that the return leg against Inter at the San Siro might decide who goes into the Europa League.








Player of the Month

Sanharib Malki- 4 goals in 3 games which helps keep our winning streak going!

A great win in the cup over our local rivals but a poor month in the league which sees us drop out the top spot to undefeated Twente but a fantastic away result in Italy cheers me up!



Dutch cup

Fortuna Sittard 2-6 Roda
Ten Voorde(11,43,56)
Vejinovic(66)
Knapen(76)
Tannane(84)

MoM- Ten Voorde

Thats how you deal with your local rivals! Sittard have been stuck in the Jupier League and the difference in quality showed.


Eredivisie

ADO Den Haag 0-0 Roda

MoM- Beugelsdijk


Really dissapointing result here which ends our winning run in the league.Draw was a fair result but it could of gone either way.



Roda 3-2 Willem II
Vejinovic (2)
Malki (82)
Ten Voorde (90+2)

MoM- Vejinovic

Ten Voorde to the rescue to save us from a disastrous result, before this match Willem hadn't won in 10! Must do better.



Roda 1-2 AZ
Junior (55)

MoM- Vorstermans

The result was coming and it put an end to our 100% home record. AZ have really improved this season and even though their winner came in the last minute they deserved their win.



Champions League

Barcelona 3-0 Roda

MoM- Messi

Barca outclass us again and we were lucky it was only 3.

Inter Milan 1-1 Roda
Malki(45)

MoM- Bakari

This result is massive in seeing whether us or Inter get 3rd. We move ahead by virtue of head-to-head. We host Porto in our final group match while Inter travel to the Nou Camp.

Month review

In the league we have faltered a little and Twente now have the advantage but there is still a long way to go yet! The result against Inter has given us the best chance of reaching the Europa League.






Player of the Month

Marko Vejinovic- Wasn't the best of months but he had good games in the cup and at Willem II

Fantastic month for Roda as we are unbeaten during December and are still in all competitions domestically and in Europe. We don't concede a goal all month!


Eredivisie

Groningen 0-1 Roda
Michaud (18)

MoM- Denswil

A pretty classic away win in which we were defensively solid and snatched the goal we needed.

Roda 3-0 Den Bosch
Ten Voorde(1,24)
Petrucci (57)

MoM-Ten Voorde

Finally! A match in which we took our chances and killed the game off quickly.

Roda 1-0 Ajax
Ferrer(51)

MoM-Biemans

Massive win, Ajax are not looking anywhere near convincing this season and didn't threaten us at all here. Match was dull but one moment of magic from Ferrer who scored a 25 yard free-kick which is enough to settle the game.



Dutch Cup

Utrecht 0-1 Roda
Esser (90)

MoM- Biemans

We really didn't didn't deserve to win but i'll take it! Lovely goal from Esser




Champions League


Roda 0-0 Porto

MoM-Bakari

Backari has been immense in Europe and we really should of won this but thankfully Barca beat Inter 3-1 , so we came 3rd in the group and have qualified for the Europa League!





Month review

What an important month for us as we manage to go undefeated and qualify for Europa League in a very difficult group. We are top of the league going into January and now have a nice two week break to get players back to full fitness

(Due to an error the league wont be posted this month . Sorry
:S )




Player of the month

Bart Biemans- Our defense was amazing this month and our vice-captain was at the heart of it. Deserving of the monthly honour.

Europa League Draw 1st and 2nd Knockout Round





Roda JC vs Athletic Bilbao

So we play the FMBase famous Bilbao , many great stories have been told about this club but unlike in the classic stories they don't have an Aitor in their team and this is our time to shine in Europe! . I am hopeful of progressing through to the 2nd knockout round where we would play either:








Benfica or Napoli

This will be interesting!


Will have an update for January up tonight!

Another good month for Roda league wise but we are out of the Dutch cup .

Eredivisie

VVV-Venlo 1-2 Roda

Ferrer(63)
Junior (78)

MoM- Malki

A hard fought match that we just managed to squeeze through.

Roda 2-1 Utrecht
Biemans (8)
Junior (11)

MoM- Biemans

Another 2-1 , this time two quick goals in the first 15 minutes were enough to take all 3 points.



RKC 1-2 Roda
Nijland o.g(25)
Petrucci(83)

MoM-Esser

Really? three 2-1 victories in a row is ridiculously consistent! Petrucci scored a late goal to get us out of jail here.



Dutch Cup


Roda 0-1 Ajax

MoM-Petersen

Really poor performance and game with both teams only managing 1 shot on target.







Month Review

Thanks to our amazing consistency league wise we manage to stay top of our league,five clear of Twente . We have a huge match against them next and will give you a match preview and its own update!

Oh yeah and we were knocked out the cup but with us trying to go further in Europe and win the league I can understand if our minds were elsewhere. It may even be a blessing in disguise?

Team news

Bakari, Michaud, Tannane and Holla Injured
Burnet suspended




Twente's two main strikers Armenteros and Chadli both miss the game.

Reserve Fixture

Twente came out on top 1-0 in a match we dominated but they aren't having a great time since the turn of the year and have a massive injury list!



Team lineups




Both teams lineup in a 4-1-2-2-1 which has become the most used formation in the Netherlands!




Roda 2-0 Twente
Junior(42)
Knapen(77)

MoM- Van Haaren

Yasssssssss! This match will go a long way in deciding who will win the title this year. We played brilliantly and controlled the match throughout. Knapen scored a freak 30 yarder to settle the match.

Another massive month were we asserted our dominance as Twente start to slip up. The congested fixture list starts to test the squad to the extreme.We have a big night in Europe aswell.


Eredivisie

Fc Oss 0-1 Roda
Ten Voorde(71)

MoM-Kadar

I fielded a reserve team out due to matches coming thick and fast. Pleased we managed to win against a plucky Oss side.

Roda 0-1 Feyernoord

MoM-De Jong

We were mugged. Feyernoord scored with their only shot on target but with 3 matches in 10 days we will have plenty of chances to get over this result.

NEC 0-1 Roda
Junior(90)

MoM-Dreesen

Matches like this win you the title. Superb goal from Junior was only spark of skill in whole match.


Roda 4-0 PSV
Vejinovic(33)
Esser(41)
Malki(45+1,81)

MoM-Malki

Wow..... it was an absolutely outstanding performance from the lads especially when you consider I had to play a youth player due to injuries and suspensions. He had a quality game too, setting up the 2nd goal.


Here is a screenshot of the young lad, hes really gave me a good impression of him with a performance like that.



Heracles 1-3 Roda
Ferrer(14)
Malki(89,90+4)

MoM-Malki

We were given a run for our money here. We actually scored the two late goals on counter attacks against a decent Heracles side that will feel hard done by.

Europa League

Michaud,Ferrer,Holla and Tannane out for us also Bakari is not match fit.

Roda
4-2 Athletic
Junior(16,35)
Denswil(29)
Malki (65)

MoM- Junior

What a night! Might be my best game in charge of Roda but the job is not done as Athletic did manage two away goals so we must stay focused for the second leg.



Month review
A terrific month for us with massive wins against Athletic, Twente and PSV. We were very good in front of goal all month averaging atleast a goal a game. The only blotch on this month was the defeat to Feyernoord.





Player of the month

Sanharib Malki- Really got going towards the end of the month with 5 goals in 3 games and alot of assist to boot
