    "The Phenomenon" Becomes A Manager - A Santos Story



    RONALDO LUIS NAZARIO DE LIMA

    "THE PHENOMENON"

    He was a beast of a player but can he be a beast of a manager?? After seeing his playing career being ravaged by injury (343 games 247 goals in club football, 98 games and 62 goals for Brazil) he is eager to have a fulfilling managerial career. Not that he didnt win much in his playing days with Cruzeiro, PSV, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Corinthians.............

    World Cup Winner x2
    Copa America Winner x2
    Confederations Cup Winner x1
    UEFA Cup Winner x1
    UEFA Cup Winners Cup Winner x1
    Intercontinental Cup Winner x1
    La Liga Winner x1
    Copa del Rey Winner x1
    Spanish Super Cup Winner x1
    Dutch Cup Winner x1
    Copa do Brasil Winner x2
    State Championship Winner x2


    Not only that but he was World Player of the Year twice, is the record scorer at the World Cup and won a European Golden Boot amongst others.

    SANTOS FC

    Arguably the most famous club in Brazil they had their heyday in the 60s as they had a certain Pele amongst their ranks and won 5 successive Brazilian Serie A titles but the fact that they have only won it 3 times since (they have won it the most times alongside Palmeiras) shows that they have struggled a bit since although a couple of years ago a Neymar inspired Santos side won the Copa Libertadores.

    I have decided to do a Brazilian save as not many people have had stories from South America and with the sheer amount of games you have to manage in Brazil (19 games state Championship, 38 Serie A plus the Brazilian Cup and any continental comps) I cant blame them!

    I hope to dominate South America, become the Brazil manager and who knows I might even discover the new Pele!!! (although why not aim higher and find the new Aitor Herrera..........................)

    PRE-SEASON (JANUARY 2013)

    Upon taking the job I discovered that we are predicted to finish 10th this season in the league so that tells me there is work to do. I am still currently trying to overhaul my backroom staff but amongst the changes was moving Pele's son, Edinho, from a scout to a goalkeeping coach.

    Player wise I have a very young team with some excellent young prospects. The likes of Gabriel Barbosa, Gustavo Henrique, Emerson, Alison, Victor Andrade and Lucas Otavio look great and they are just the ones in the first team!!!!

    As for the senior players they have Leandro Damiao (I didnt know they signed him recently - a nice surprise), Arouca and Edu Dracena.

    --

    PLAYERS IN

    All 3 were brought in on a free transfer. Otavio will be in the senior squad, Marco Antonio in the reserves and Felipe Araruna in the youths. I have a budget of 5m but with the amount of players in the youth team and with the State Championship starting so early I am still trying to asess my squad!!!

    --

    PLAYERS OUT

    My experienced keeper Aranha left to join Maritimo in Portugal for 500k while I received 62k from Braga for Anderson Carvalho. I released veterans Leo and Renato while I loaned out a couple of players and cancelled a couple of loans.

    --

    FIRST TEAM

    I am not 100% set on my starting XI but this is what I think it will be............

    Gabriel Gasparotto

    Emerson - Edu Dracena - Gustavo Henrique - Cicinho

    Arouca - Alison

    Thiago Ribeiro (LW) - Gabriel Barbosa - Geuvanio (RW)

    Leandro Damiao

    JANUARY

    SAO PAULO STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

    Santos 3 (Jubal 53, Rildo 69, Matheus Augusto 88)
    Botafogo (SP) 1 (William 78)

    This is not the famous Botafogo but the Sao Paulo non-league version. I played a young backup side here and they did a fine job.


    --

    Palmeiras 2 (Serginho 26, Vinicius 69)
    Santos 2 (Thiago Ribeiro 7, Emerson 25)

    I am gutted that we threw away a 2 goal lead but I would have taken a point before kick-off. Palmeiras are one of our fiercest rivals and have won the Serie A 8 times which is a record shared with ourselves.


    --

    Santos 4 (Jubal 2, Leandro Damiao 29, 45, 85pen)
    Paulista 0

    Paulista are another non-league side.

    SUMMARY

    A decent start to my management career as we got 7pts out of 9. The 2 non-league sides were beaten comfortably while we played out a draw against rivals Palmeiras.

    I would love to get a settled team out but with the games coming thick and fast squad rotation is required. To be honest that was one of the reasons why I wanted to manage in Brazil as my youngsters would get plenty of games but I dont know my squad fully yet so it is difficult to judge!!!!

    FEBRUARY

    SAO PAULO STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

    Santos 2 (Gabriel Barbosa 39, Giva 59)
    Ponte Preta 1 (Andre Lima 14)

    I am pleased with this win as Ponte Preta are a fellow Serie A side.

    --

    Linense (SP) 1 (Anselmo 36)
    Santos 3 (Gustavo Henrique 19, Edu Dracena 45, Rildo 54)

    This was a fiery affair against non-league Linense as there were 10 yellow cards and 2 red cards shown. Rildo came off the bench and scored with his 1st touch after a tactical reshuffle following Geuvanio's red card.


    --

    Portuguesa 2 (Henrique 54. Romao 74)

    Santos 2 (Thiago Ribeiro 14, Leonardo Cittadini 86)

    Portuguesa are a top division side but after looking at their starting lineup this should have been a victory.


    --

    Santos 2 (Thiago Ribeiro 9, Gustavo Henrique 76)
    Comercial (SP) 1 (Bruno Soares 50)

    This was pretty shocking. Comercial have 8 players, 2 are injured and 4 are on loan yet we struggled to get the points. Leandro Damiao, apart from one game, has been shocking so far.


    --

    Oeste 3 (Bruno Neves 10, 70, Reinaldo 14)
    Santos 4 (Edu Dracena 28, Geuvanio 47, Gabriel Barbosa 73, Victor Andrade 77)

    Oeste are a Serie B side and if the sides at that level are all so tough to beat then this save will be much more competitive than I first thought!

    SUMMARY

    Month number 2 is done and we are still unbeaten however we are being made to go all the way by the so called lesser teams. That said in my first XI Gasparotto, Henrique, Emerson and Barbosa are all teenagers and with only 4 players in my first team squad aged 24 or over I suppose I should expect to see inconsistency.

    Leandro Damiao, the main man in my side has been rubbish!!!!!! lol

    Corinthians 2 (Danilo 19, Romarinho 74)

    --

    Santos 2 (Leandro Damiao 30, Bruno Peres 44)

    We should have won this by a lot more. Sao Paulo drew so we extend our lead at the top.

    Santos 2 (Gabriel Barbosa 60, Leandro Damiao 65)
    Atletico Sorocaba 0

    Our opponents are non-league bur are in a play-off space at the minute. They have the former Borussia Dortmund striker Ewerthon in their ranks. We are now 6pts clear and have secured a play-off spot.

    We are still unbeaten!!! It looks as though we will finish top of the pile in the State Championship but can we win the all important play-offs?? Gabriel Barbosa at the age of 16 was immense this month as was the more experienced Thiago Ribeiro.

    The matchday squad cant have more than 5 foreign players.

    In the State Championship we have 19 games and then play-offs (no idea if it is 2 legs or not)
    The Brazilian League is a 38 game campaign
    The Brazilian Cup is a 2 legged affair and we start in round 1 (no idea how many rounds - can see up to round 4 and no QFs in sight!!!)
    God knows how many Continental games and Super Cup games I could play!!!!

  12. Will be following looks really good so far

    wow thats an incredible number of games to play every year. after following your bilbao stories and seeing how you like to win every competition in the same year its going to be interesting to see whether you can do that here. you are going to need a lot of depth in your squad in order to rotate the starting 11 in the different competitions. im sure its different for each team in the league but what is the financial structure like. will you be able to keep your bigger players at the club or will you be forced to offload them to european clubs in order to keep the club running

    What a win this is!!! Mogi Mirim is the club where Rivaldo ended his playing days and are in Serie C but we absolutely destroyed them here thanks to Agustin Allione who set up 4 goals and scored 1.

    Sao Paulo 3 (Alexandre Pato 21, 58, 90)
    Santos 2 (Geuvanio 2, Thiago Ribeiro 48)

    My first defeat as manager of Santos and it was fully deserved as they had over 20 attempts to our 4!! That said, Sao Paulo amazingly had only conceded 2 goals before this match so we doubled that here.

    SUMMARY


    A fine month as we ended the league stage of the State Championship top of the pile and qualified for the semis where we will play Serie B side Oeste.

    There are so many things I need to learn and get used to. How do I qualify for the Copa Libertadores? I thought the Copa do Brasil was a 2 legged affair, we won the first leg and are in the next round but several others played 2 legs, agents offering me money for a percentage of my players, I could go on................

    I did sign someone though. I felt that I needed a RW and with Europeans not fancying a move to South America I targeted Agustin Allione from Velez Sarsfield and I got the 18y/o Argentinian for 5.5m. He has started off briliantly so far.

    I currently am 330k in the red (have a loan of 40m) but mainly due to signing Allione. I have had 7m bids for Arouca but thats it so far and the board didnt accept it over my head thankfully. You get less than 3m for winning Serie A so we wont get rich in prize money but the tv deals and sponsorship is not too bad

  16. Nice going so far mate. I think by winning the league is how you qualify for Copa Libertadores! I'm looking into starting in the Brazilian Third division, but not sure!! Think you are putting me off! Haha.

  17. That's an amazing story. I'mBrazilian and if you need some help to understanding anything, don't exitate to ask.
    I see you are in doubt about how to qualify to copa libertadores.well, it is simple: won the Serie A or finish at least at fourth. Another way is winning the brazilian cup. That are the 5 spot se have in copa libertadores.
    But we have a cha!pionship similar to Europa League, callled Copa SulamericanaSulamericana and the qualifying is almost the same: finish serie a betweeen 5 and 8 place.

    A good win from my backups here. We had 3 players taken off injured though and ended the match with 9 men!!!

    I have just found out that the away team goes through automatically if they win by 2 goals or more! I have so much to learn!!!!

    Pato, Ganso, Luis Fabiano, Alvaro Pereira and Cambiasso are just some of the players that Sao Paulo can call upon (and they signed Kaka today in real life) so they are a really strong side but we had this game in our own hands but when Edu Dracena got sent-off we collapsed.

    At full time I was delighted as I thought we had won an away goals but once again the rules and regulations in this mad country brought me a surprise as we went straight to a penalty shoot-out. We dont have great penalty takers but we converted 5 out of 5 which usually is enough!

    SUMMARY

    This was an important, and successful month. We won the Sao Paulo state Championship by beating Sao Paulo on penalties. They really have a good side and should be, along with Corinthians, the sides to beat in our state and I would think they will be there or there abouts in the Serie A campaign.

    We finally kicked off the Serie A campaign with 2 wins and I hope to gain qualification for the Copa Libertadores by the end of the season. We are predicted to finish 10th so some work will need to be done.

    I figured out why we didnt have to play the 2nd legs of my cup matches as if the away team wins by 2 goals or more they go straight through to the next round!!! I will learn the quirks of this nations rules eventually!!!!

    I see you are in doubt about how to qualify to copa libertadores.well, it is simple: won the Serie A or finish at least at fourth. Another way is winning the brazilian cup. That are the 5 spot se have in copa libertadores.
    But we have a cha!pionship similar to Europa League, callled Copa SulamericanaSulamericana and the qualifying is almost the same: finish serie a betweeen 5 and 8 place.
    Thanks. I kinda figured out that but when I looked at the Serie A rules it says that teams can be excluded if they reach the 4th round of the Copa do Brasil? Surely that doesnt mean that if we win the league and get to the cup 4th round we will not compete continentally????

    I need that explained!!!

  20. Every time you post an update I think, yeah, I'm going to do a lower league Brazilian save, but then you post a question about being unsure of something and I then think, hmm if KlippyBo doesn't understand then maybe I won't do it!! Haha. How you finding the save, aside from the crazy rules? Cheers.

  21. Great read so far mate, Congrats on winning the state championships...will 100% be following this story!

  22. Great Story!!!
    Will be following 100% AS ALWAYS!!!

    P.S. Is the Serie A (Brazil) any good?

    Its decent enough. Not knowing much regarding the strengths of the opposition is annoying as its hard to judge but it being Brazil every side seems to be filled with creative talents. Its like the old joke..............

    How do you offend a Brazilian?

    Tell him he is in goal

  24. Nice!! Brazilian Seria A it's the most unpredictible league in the world! Apart for 4 teams, everyone will fight for the title! Cruzeiro, Atletico Mineiro, Flamengo, Fluminense, Vitoria... all teams with very talented players!
    About the rules... let's see...
    If I not mistaken... If you won seria A and goes to Copa libertadores next year, you will participate in Copa do Brazil next year too, but you will enter in ther 4th round (or later, I can't remenber).

    Ps.: can you post a SS of the tactics?

    Finally I reach the Seria A with Treze. It's gonna be a hard year...

    I laugh the joke...

  25. Hi KlippyBo,

    The Aitor Herrera of Brazil!! There will be abit of a Diego Costa uproar from the fans!!!
    Great to see the brazilian league being tried as i have on so many occasions but have failed!!!

    Best I done was 2nd in the State Champo was with Atletico Mineiro and that was hard. Any advice on tactics, setups and ways to approach matches?

    Thanks and keep up the Good Work!!!

    JUNE

    Sao Paulo 3 (Souza 13, Alexandre Pato 59, Douglas 72)
    Santos 1 (Leandro Damiao 88)

    I have no complaints here as we were well beaten. I am fed up of Sao Paulo as they have beaten us 3 times in the last 2 months.


    --

    Santos 3 (Leandro Damiao 45, 54, 76)
    Internacional 2 (Alex 22, Paulao 87)

    Leandro Damiao showed his old side what they were missing out on here as he single handedly won us the game.


    --

    Santos 3 (Gustavo Henrique 10, Leandro Damiao 42, Arouca 51)
    Vitoria 2 (William Henrique 44, Gustavo Henrique og68)

    Vitoria were top of the table with a 100% record but we ended that here.

    --

    Goias 0
    Santos 2 (Leonardo Cittadini 1, 72)

    I must admit I did wonder - with 9 games this month what happens when Brazil play?? The answer is that I have to do without my players!!!! Luckily Goias have started the campaign shockingly and we won easily enough. Vitor Alex became the youngest ever player in Serie A.


    --

    Cruzeiro 1 (Ricardo Goulart 72)
    Santos 1 (Gustavo Henrique 77)

    We played really well here and deserved the win but it was not to be.

    --

    Botafogo 0
    Santos 1 (Gabriel Barbosa 10)

    A great win as we leapfrog Botafogo and our great start to the season continues.

    --

    Santos 1 (Giva 74)
    Flamengo 1 (Paulinho 22)

    --

    Santos 4 (Arouca 37, Leandro Damiao 45, 64, 85pen)
    Portuguesa 1 (Henrique 82)

    Having checked Portuguesa's players I can safely say they are the worst Serie A side I have seen thus far!

    SUMMARY

    A fine month. We played really well and only lost once, against Sao Paulo, so results wise it was pretty much perfect (almost) but I am left wondering what the hell will happen when Continental competition comes on the go!! We crammed in 8 games during the month plus Brazil had fixtures so its pretty crazy to be honest.

    Crazy but enjoyable!

    Bad news peeps - something fucked up and the game kept crashing at a certain date so i have had to delete the save.

    My laptop is causing me a few problems (the "l" key doesnt work for starters which is quite annoying considering the amount of typing i do (and a good reason never to be managing Lille)

    There is good news however. I got some decent spyware, scanned my laptop, fixed a shedload of things and i should be good to go again plus I have managed to re-download OBS so I will be able to stream again!!!!

    Will probably be starting a stream tonight!

  29. Hpe it works!!!
