Based in Reyljavik, the Iceland Capital, the team just won 1st Division and promotion to Simadeildin. They are a former "big" team in Iceland, winning Simadeildin 5 times (last time in 1991). They have one Iceland Cup (1971) and no League Cup yet.
The team has crappy installations ...
5 grey star training center
"Meh" youth center
Rudimentary youth recruitement
The cold in Reykjavik means there will be cancelled games in January to March, and that the grass will become rough more often.
The president gave me the following tasks
Simadeildin : Top 10 (stay)
Cup : Quarter Final
League Cup : Doesn't care
Transfer/Wage budget : 0€ - 450k€/month
I should note that for a team expected to end 11 in Simadeildin, the President is asking a lot in the Cup. I think he will be a pain in the ass when I get to C1.
Authorised staff :
Medic : 1
Trainer : 2
Supervisor : 1
Ok, now that's just wrong. I talked some sense into the president and expanded it to :
Medic : 1
Trainer : 4
Supervisor : 6
I recruited a goal trainer because my keepers weren't happy with the situation. Speaking of the team....my key player is 37. You heard me.
My transfer center is EMPTY. I don't know anyone to recruit. And my supervisors can only go to Scandinavian countries, or England. I sent them to Faroe, Finland, Norway, England, Iceland (duh) and Iceland again. My team is barely Simadeildin level. The youths all suck.
(I won't post the starting 11 yet)
Oh, and I have two whole months of friendlies to schedule before the League Cup starts. I'm going to win money by losing against the big teams....another bad news : I can't face non-Iceland teams because 1) It's January and 2) Iceland is far away from everyone.
My "good" players are the Central Midfielders and Left/Right Midfielders, so I use them in my main tactic :
The striker is a target man. The transition between midfield and attack worries me, so I put a focus on crosses and passes. No through balls, my players have crappy speed.
At the same time, some agents come knocking at my door with unemployed players. GREAT.
César (Left Midfield)
Guobrandson (Central Midfield)
Kambou (Defensive Midfielder)
Jonasson (Left Midfield)
Pictures next post. Kambou is from Ivory Coast, and I can only use 3 non-EU players (African players don't count :/)
Okay, here goes nothing...
Haukar 1-5 Vikingur
Marshall, César, Sigurosson, Takefusa, Rutgers
BI 2-2 Vikingur
LV 0-2 Vikingur
Vikingur 1-1 KR
Vikingur 1-0 Keflavik
Vikingur 1-4 Breioablik
Vikingur 2-2 FH
César is back
Vikingur 0-1 Fram
Vikingur 1-0 Valur
A promising set of games. I learned that Marshall, my right midfielder, owns. The players have great troubles keeping their fitness, so I had games every 3 days. The games went nicely, especially against Simadeildin top dogs. A big loss against the reigning Champion though.
César had a great impact on games when he was there. He's 37 so only here for a season though. If some of them remember him, he was in Inter in 07-08.
I have two good strikers according to my ass man, but they don't have an impact on the games yet.
Rutgers is a solid CD but the other three defenders suck, and the goalie is mediocre.
Oh, and no B team. If any of my key players is not here, I'm dead.
Coming soon : League Cup, and my starting 11.
