Definitely leave if you can. Sporting finished 4th, I bet they'll be looking for a new manager.

Got the Costa Rica job, hopefully I can get them in the WC and gain some reputation


also, got through the 3rd qualifying round of Europa against Legia Warszawa; drew Dinamo Moscow now, so no promises.

Cool, looks like your career is gaining momentum. Have to say I was a bit pessimistic when you started out at Korea's National Police Agency football team. Keep going strong.

Haha, that was actually fun, though


I have to say, I was lucky (although it wasn't unexpected, seeing as my nationality is Portuguese) to get a Portuguese team; Portugal's leagues are quite easy and when you're one of the big three getting European silverware is very attainable because you just stroll by opposition in the national league. Being a smaller team isn't that hard as well because, although you're bound to get 5-0 results against the top 3, if you manage to draw or even win against the likes of Braga, Guimar„es and Nacional, then you can reach high spots, like I did.

So.. A LOT has happened and I haven't been bothered to update you guys. Shame I know, you live for this. Here's a summary of what's happened!

So, two years have passed (or rather, I finished the season where I went to the Europa League and then did another). I didn't get to the group phase of the Europa League which was a shame, but not surprising. That season, I finished 7th (a spot away from Europe), but managed to get my first piece of silverware!






Yes, courtesy of the Big Three who insisted on fielding weaker sides against me, I won the Portuguese Cup! I was ecstatic when I realized I was going to Europe due to winning the Cup, but apparently that doesn't happen anymore. F*ck.



So, I started another season at Aves after spending the summer trying to find another club; again no luck. So last season started and the team got another revamp, and the league was a little harder:



Alas, my knock-out competition skills were rewarded once again, when I met Porto in the Cup final, again!


YEEEEEEES Leto again, what a legend!!


Meanwhile, I gave up my Costa Rica spot for a much closer to home Portugal U-21 team!



So I'm "renowned as a bit of a cup specialist", and then a funny thing happened. I got two offers!

One, from Dinamo Bucharest:



And another, from city-rivals Rapid!




Now, obviously Dinamo have history and tradition on their sides, but the thing is, Rapid have qualified for Europe next season, plus they have more money. So...







Here we go.

Air... Oxygen... I can... finally... breathe again!!! It's funny, because I also thought multiple times ''Ehh, what the heck, I can't be bothered to post an update on Soccergaming'', but then I felt like I needed at least a couple of witnesses to make my FM challenge worth my while and for it not to feel like a TOTAL waste of time... hehe.

Anyway... Well done winning back-to-back Cups! Do you think you can win the Romanian title with Rapid in your first season? I checked Wikipedia and IRL they only won it three times in their entire history.

Haha I checked both teams out in Wikipedia. I knew Dinamo had more history but I had no clue it was such a difference; and yes I intend to get some silverware in two seasons. I signed a three-year contract, let's see where it takes me. The Romanian League is 16th while the Portuguese is 10th, but I guess winning or being 2nd in the 16th is better than being 9th in the 10th, right? Plus is a new challenge as I've never managed in Eastern Europe!

I had a game a few FM versions back with Steaua and I'll tell you this: Romanian teams have potential to be really good (although not good enough to win the CL unless you get a tremendous run of luck), and the league is really easy (at least for the top few teams, Rapid being one of them). Good luck, I have a feeling this could springboard you into one of the Big 4 leagues, which should then put you 1 more club jump from being at a team that could win the CL.

Indeed, I've already snatched my first piece of silverware!



Got a bit lucky, I like to call it effective The tactic is still being worked on, but it's ambitious, too:






The goal right now is to do the best I can this season and hopefully until next season win the league, and get a good run in Europe! Because after all, the big picture here is to be great in the Continental Competitions.
