Euro Trek

    I am going to be attempting W4NKER's Euro Trek Challenge. For all of those who haven't heard about this challenge it is where you start unemployed in whichever country you want, Georgia for me, then as soon as you win the league you move to the next bordering country and win that league and the so on and so on.

  2. I have started unemployed and have loaded the georgian, azerbaijani, armenian and turkish leagues. I have been looking for jobs and Samtredia accepted my job offer.

  3. Good luck lad

    Samtredia is a club in the Second Division of Georgia or Pirveli Liga. I am expected to win the league in my first season.

    This is a basic profile of Samtredia.

    Transfers
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-15-4.49.35-pm.png

    Kilasonia is a back-up right back I snapped up as one of the glaring issues in this team was no cover at full-back.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-16-2.00.53-pm-copy.png
    Tkebuchava will be my starting DM/CM. 3 and a half star current ability.

    Tactics
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-16-1.33.40-pm-copy.png
    My formation is a 4-4-2 with attacking mids. Memarnishvili is easily my best player with 4 and a half star current ability and 5 star potential.

    I will be giving updates every 6 or 7 league games.

  7. I will be following. Always wanted to try this, but as there are so many leagues I thought it would take a lot of time. So I'm doing it in South America at the moment where there are only 10 natios (Excluding Surinam and the Guyanas) Already done Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Chile and Perú. Struggling in Ecuador at the moment.

    Best of luck mate!

    I was thinking of doing it for the whole world but it would take a lot of time. Good job by winning all those leagues. Thanks for following.

    Transfers
    Before I get into my league position I would like to show two massive signings I have completed.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-16-2.42.09-pm-copy.png
    Branko Lazarevic is a 4 star CB i picked up on a free. Before him I was playing with either a 2 and a half star CB or an error-prone 19 year old so I really needed Lazarevic.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-17-7.21.19-am-copy.png
    Viktor Petakov has added depth in attacking positions he can play in CAM and RW. He has played brilliantly so far and now Ilia Pavliashvili (my other RW who has played very well so far) cannot get close to the starting 11.

    League
    I sit in 1st after 14 matches so more than half of the season played. Dinamo Batumi (who beat me 4-0 earlier) sit 1 point behind me with Chiatura and Machakhela hot on my tail too. It is very congested at the top and every point matters.

    Also my team always gives up goals towards the ends of matches. Any idea how to fix that? Thanks

    The Georgian Cup wasn't my main priority as I wanted to earn promotion right away but we have advanced all the way to the final! I haven't posted the scores of the Georgian Cup games so I will now.

    Bagashvili is my first choice striker and he now scores in almost every game. He has 15 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions and 12 goals in 20 appearances in the league. He also has 5 man of the match awards. I posted a picture of his profile in the last post.

    A close second is Viktor Petakov, the new RW, who has 6 assists and 1 goal in 9 appearances in the league and in all competitions he has 5 goals and 6 assists in 12 games.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-18-10.38.52-am-copy.png
    Samtredia won the league with 3 games to go. The season finished out with Samtredia leading Dinamo Batumi by 9 points!

    Georgian Cup
    We lost the Georgian Cup 2-0 to Dinamo Tblisi. I had played the final and it went to penalties but there was an error and I had to restart the game and when I replayed the final we lost 2-0 to 2 late goals.

    Season Review
    Pirveli Liga: 1st
    Georgian Cup: Runners-Up

    Best Player
    Avtandil Bagashvili
    He was the Pirveli Liga top scorer with 15 goals in 23 appearances. He also had 7 assists.

    Time to get ready for the next season in the Umaglesi Liga!

    Transfers
    I knew that after promotion we would need some very good signings and I believe I have found them.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-19-8.01.43-am-copy.png

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-18-7.09.31-pm-copy.png
    Ivan Todorov will add some much-needed quality to this back line and will play alongside either Kikabidze or Lazarevic.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-18-5.21.16-pm-copy.png
    Ivo Raykov is another addition to our back-line and he will give competition to Kakushadze. Now that Raykov has arrived I will try to sell Kilasonia.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-18-5.16.38-pm-copy.png
    Branko Lazarevic came to me and said he wasn't feeling comfortable in Georgia and I didn't want to lose a player of his quality so I knew I had to bring a Serbian player into the team so I got Igor Jelic on loan. He will give competition to Eristavi and Gureshidze at CM.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-18-5.16.28-pm-copy.png
    Just in case Bagashvili couldn't find his scoring boots in the top-flight I bought Jerry Sitoe to step in and annihilate. He looks like a very good striker and although he got severely injured in his first week at the club I am very pleased.

    I also released players that were not in my plans this season and let a youngster out on loan.

    In the Umaglesi Liga you play 22 games so I will be giving updates every 6 games.

    I have played 6 games now with a record of 2-2-2. We are in 7th place.

    Samtredia 0-3 Zestafoni
    Scorers: None

    Samtredia 2-0 WIT-Georgia (cup)
    Scorers: Kakushadze, Eristavi

    Samtredia 1-1 Zugdidi
    Scorers: Apakidze o.g

    Samtredia 1-3 Dinamo Tblisi
    Scorers: Gogitadze

    Samtredia 0-0 Guria
    Scorers: None

    Samtredia 2-1 Torpedo Kutaisi
    Scorers: Gedenidze, Sitoe
    This was Sitoe's first game back from injury and immediately after scoring he gets injured!

    Samtredia 4-3 Zugdidi (cup)
    Scorers: Bagashvili, Petakov (2), Pavliashvili

    Samtredia 2-0 Sioni
    Scorers: Pavliashvili, Memarnishvili

    After a slow start to the season we finally have picked up form and haven't lost in 3 games.

    My Player of the Season so far: Igor Jelic
    The CM who was originally brought for cover has been a key part of my starting 11. He hasn't been great but he has been better than all my other players. He has 2 assists in the league and 4 assists in the cup

    Current Position: 7th
    Points: 8
    Points ahead of Relegation: 5

    Halfway into the season and just 2 points off the relegation zone. Form has definitely dropped with injuries to key players such as Ivan Todorov, Giorgi Gureshidze, Igor Jelic and Viktor Petakov

    Samtredia 0-3 Metalurgi Rustavi
    Scorers: None
    We played fantastic in the first half but then totally collapsed in the second.

    Samtredia 2-3 Dila Gori
    Scorers: Todorov, Lazarevic
    Two goals off corners meant we almost beat one of the best teams in the league.

    Samtredia 1-3 Zestafoni (cup)
    Scorers: Bagashvili

    Samtredia 1-0 Kolkheti Poti
    Scorers: Tkebuchava
    Tkebuchava grabs his first goal for the club as we take all 3 points from a must win game against the other promoted side.

    Samtredia 0-1 Spartaki Tskhinvali
    Scorers: None
    A bit of a let down as I was hoping to draw or even win this game.

    Samtredia 0-1 Chikhura Sachkhere
    Scorers:
    We can't get any points from any of the top teams and it is a bit frustrating.

    Samtredia 4-2 Zugdidi
    Scorers: Petakov, Bagashvili (2), Kakushadze
    Another must win game that we take maximum points from. After this game Zugdidi sacked their manager.

    My Player of the Season so far: Ilia Pavliashvili
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-20-1.15.23-pm-copy.png

    My starting LW this season, taking over from Giorgi Memarnishvili, has delivered 6 assists and 1 goal this season with a 6.9 average rating.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-20-9.00.23-pm-copy.png
    Cesar Meza Colli is Memarnishvili's replacement. Memarnishvili has been on a steep decline and has lost all his pace that made him a great player.

    League
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-22-11.29.38-am-copy.png

    Samtredia 2-2 Zestafoni
    Scorers: Kakushadze, Sitoe
    I thought Sitoe had the quality to rip this league to shreds but it has been the complete opposite. He has scored only twice and missed many clear cut chances. We finally got a result against one of the better teams in the league.

    Samtredia 1-4 Dinamo Tblisi
    Scorers: Turmanidze
    We came back down to earth with a massacre by Dinamo Tblisi.

    Samtredia 2-1 Guria
    Scorers: Pavliashvili (2)
    Pavliashvili had a great game but then got injured.

    Samtredia 1-2 Torpedo Kutaisi
    Scorers: Cesar Meza Colli
    Our new signing gets his first goal for the club in a disappointing loss.

    Samtredia 1-2 Metalurgi Rustavi
    Scorers: Bagashvili
    Another must win game goes down the drain.

    Samtredia 0-2 Sioni
    Scorers: None
    This month we lost 3 key games in a row to have us stare relegation in the face.

    Very disappointing as we could have been in 6th at the end of all this and not have relegation as a problem. The games against Spartaki and Kolkheti Poti are now more important then ever.

    Position: 10th

    We have ended the season in 8th place and a 12.83K bonus awarded to us.

    Samtredia 0-2 Dila Gori

    Scorers: Sitoe
    Super sub Sitoe nicked us a point

    Samtredia 2-1 Kolkheti Poti
    Scorers: Todorov, Sitoe
    We won the most important game of the season.

    Smtredia 1-1 Chikhura
    Scorers: Bagashvili
    A point in this game ensured our survival in the top flight.

    My player of the Season
    Ilia Pavliashvili
    In 19 games he had 3 goals and 7 assists and was our main creative force.

    We have brought in a couple of new faces and released some players that were just not good enough.

    In
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-24-10.57.16-am-copy.png
    I felt we needed a new CDM as we were leaking way too many goals and now against top teams I can play a formation with 2 defensive mids.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-24-4.31.57-pm-copy.png
    I originally brought him in on loan last season and was impressed by his performances than his former club, Zestafoni, released him and I picked him up on a free.

    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-24-4.26.16-pm-copy.png
    I released my back-up goalie Nika Bandzava as he was not good enough for the club and bought this player. He is still young so if he is not giving me good displays he can improve very fast.

    Out
    First I released Giorgi Kilasonia because he was not not good enough and if i kept him we would have 3 right backs.

    Second was a center back who had been sitting in the reserves and when Skuri came with an offer I decided to take advantage and made 6K off him.

    Then I released Nika Bandzava who I talked about earlier.

    4th I released Giorgi Memarnishvili who was about to turn 34 and was declining fast.

    First I bought I new CB for 650K. A bit of a large transfer fee but I really needed a center back and he was the only center back whose team would accept my enquiry.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-29-4.56.37-pm-copy.png

    Second I bought Hristiyan Popov from Pirin (Gotse Delchev). We had no natural defensive mids in our squad so he will be a key part of our season.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-29-5.00.24-pm-copy.png

    Third is Sadio Tounkara. He is a center mid for the future.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-29-5.02.43-pm-copy.png

    Then I signed Dimo Balkalov on a free. He will be our back-up winger.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-29-5.04.25-pm-copy.png

    I brought Giorgi Eristavi with me from Samtredia as we needed another center mid.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-07-29-5.10.30-pm-copy.png

    Lastly I brought Olivier Boumal in on a free. He will be our starting winger.

    Thanks I am moving to Armenia now.

    Group Stage!
    So I have found no jobs in Armenia so I will be staying with Neftci a little longer than expected but we have made the Champions League group stage which is a new best for our club and Azerbaijani clubs as well.

    Our group is pretty much the group of death with Bayern, Tottenham and Sevilla so 3rd will be a huge accomplishment.

    As for the league we are 1st after 3 games.

    We are halfway through the league and winning the league by 4 points. In the Champions League we are last as expected but I do want to score a goal which we haven't done yet.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-04-8.40.20-pm-copy.png
    Also one thing I forgot in the last update is we signed a new striker named Nasko Milev, a right back named Milos Radulovic and a center back named Mamuka Kobakhidze and released Mahir Sukurov and Vurgun Huseynov and sold Yohan Bocognano to Lorient while Sadio Tounkara went out on loan to Baku.

    I have now found a job with Banants, an underperforming team in Armenia. Last season they finished 6th but should be finishing around 3rd.

  37. Euro Trek-banants.jpg
    An average start to the season and this is around where I think we will finish but we could finish higher. We are 4th after 7 games.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-7.52.59-pm-copy.png
    Transfers
    Our squad lacked any real depth so I signed 5 players, some will start, others will be back-up
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-7.56.38-pm-copy.png

    First player is Sebastian Kuntic. He was originally gonna be a back up but Serges Deble got injured and now Kuntic has scored 2 goals in 4 starts.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-7.58.32-pm-copy.png

    Then we signed a new goalkeeper as we only had one in the squad. Ilko Pirgov will be my number one keeper.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-8.00.47-pm-copy.png

    Giorgi Turmanidze will be a starting CB. He was brought in because we only had 2 center backs.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-8.02.49-pm-copy.png

    Rumen Rumenov is one of best players in our squad.
    Euro Trek-screen-shot-2014-09-09-8.04.12-pm-copy.png

    We didn't have a natural left back in our squad so I signed Shamil Kurbanov.

    Yes.

    Anytime after 75 minutes, switch to a 4141 or a Barcelona-style 451. You'll need a defensive midfielder sitting in the area just in front of your defense.

    Waste a lot of time, hit them on the counter attack and play narrowly. If your GK is a vampire, i.e., frightened of crosses, don't play narrowly.

    In lower leagues or less competitive leagues, the most important attribute for this DM is Determination. At higher levels, you'll need a high work rate, good concentration and anticipation.

    We are ahead of Pyunik by just 1 point heading into the final leg of the season.
