Actually that is interesting. I read an article some time ago that suggested football has developed in the provincial cities of most countries. I can't remember the reasoning behind it, maybe just that the people tend to be less cultured and have less money than in the capital. But if you think about it, the major club in most capitals isn't a historic power.

City - Capital Club - Best Club

Germany - Herta - Bayern
Italy - Roma - Juventus
England - Arsenal/Chelsea - Liverpool/Man U
France - PSG? (actually has no major historic club) - Marseille/Lyon/St. Etienne
Spain - Madrid (exception, but mostly due to Franco) - Barca
USSR - Moscow Clubs - Dynamo Kiev
Scotland - Hibs/Hearts - Rangers/Celtic

Most of the major exceptions had dictators or communist states where the capital clubs were the club of the army or secret police and could pull players from other clubs. Ajax is the biggest non-explicable exception, but PSV and Feyenoord have combined for more titles, and it's a pretty small nation.

It's funny, in South America the big teams are from the capital cities without exception (of the top of my head). The Buenos Aires teams, the Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo teams (there wasn't even a Brazilian national championship until the 70's I believe), the Montevideo teams, Lima in Peru, etc. Politics? I think so.

Of course Juventus is from the major Italian industrial automotive city carried by the Agnelli's, one of modern Italy's greatest powers.

Right, big working class towns because football was a working class sport. In South America maybe it was more exotic and English, so developed around where the ex-pats were.

Signing day!

Dumic and Husbauer arrive on free transfers. Dumic arrives from 'New Firm' rivals Brøndby and will hopefully be a solid squad player for years to come. Dukla veteran Husbauer (he doesn't know it yet himself) will rotate with Claudemir on midfield. Wichmann is another signing for depth and will hopefully develop into a solid squad member. Emil Larsen is a talented Danish winger, signed to rotate with Nicolai Jørgensen on the left wing. He's just as good on the right wing, where he will rotate with another signing: Lazar Markovic. He's the one I'm most excited about. In my Granada game he became a world class right winger. Great signing for Copenhagen.

Departures: RW Rurik Gislason (2.9M, Espanyol), CM Thomas Kristensen (750k, Qatar) and ST Igor Vetokele (1.5M, Blackburn).

I'm already fighting off Milan's interest in Nicolai Jørgensen and Atletico Madrid's interest in Andreas Cornelius. They're players with elite potential, keep an eye on them.

The last gold star I got was in Krakow. And not Dukla Krakow.

I created a few ''Panini stickers'' of my recent favorite regens. Why not post them, you guys won't judge me here, right? I also made the shirts, expect for the vintage Barcelona one.

Yeah, none of their recent Nike shirts had a real ''Barca'' feel to them, so I chose this one. I think this one is from the 60's. They also alternated between broad and thin stripes and darker and lighter colors in earlier decades.

You should do some Chelmsford and Lech panini stickers.
