"Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story

  1. "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story

    AFC ESKILSTUNA

    So i finally bought FM17 and wanted to do a story save and what better save to start off with than the team that i cheer and work for (I'm the kit manager for the U17's)


    So what is it to know about this team?
    Well it's owned by a man who goes by the name of Alex Ryssholm who is the creator of the team back in 2007 and after some moving around and taking over other clubs to gain there league position they started a cooperation with Eskilstuna City and changed name from AFC United to AFC Eskilstuna and the goal for the club is first to become a Swedish top team and then a European top team who plays with homegrown players.

    It's going to be hard to play with only homegrown players but a few notable players coming from Eskilstuna is Sebastian Larsson (Sunderland) Kenneth Andersson (Former European Professional) Andreas Alm (Manager in Denmark) Nordin Gerzic (Örebro SK) and one player who are currently playing for AFC Eskilstuna (Haris Cirak) Other noteworthy names are
    Alireza Haghighi (GK who have been capped by Irans NT) Jernade Meade (former Arsenal and Swansea player)
    but the biggest of them all is the man the myth the legend...


    Emmanuel "Dench" Frimpong

    After his Arsenal time has fallen a bit from grace playing for the likes of Ufa and Arsenal Tula in Russia.
    Hopefully he can turn out for AFC and keep us up this season as we are tipped to finish dead last in the league.


    Squad overview will come later today.

    Squad Review
    So here is the "long" "awaited" Squad review with being newly promoted and newly created we don't have a lot of money or players so currently we are overspending our wage budget by 8 thousands Euros which is alot. Another thing we have alot of is young players and hopefully we can loan some older players to get the experience we need to survive Allsvenskan.

    Goalkeepers

    Our first choice GK is Tim Erlandsson who is 20 years old and is currently on loan from Nottingham Forest on a one year deal.
    (If the picture/pictures looks bad please let me know and i will use a random player instead of their real picture.)
    Name:  Erlandsson.png

    Our second choice striker is the one year younger and homegrown player Cem Apek
    Name:  Apek.png

Size:  76.8 KB

    We currently only have two goalkeepers in the club and that will have to change in the near future.

    Defenders

    There isn't much to say about our defense other than that it us full to the brim with talented young players and to lead these youngsters we have Daniel Björnquist at Right Back who has Allsvenskan experience and is at the top of his game at the ripe old age of 28!
    Name:  Björnquist.png

    The second choice for the Right Back position has got to be Gustav Jarl who is 21 years old and currently on his second spell with this young club being here on a loan in the 2014 season.
    Name:  Jarl.png

    And to lock up the middle we have Ludvig Öhman who is a 25 year old with experience in Allsvenskan with Kalmar and has played in Japan before joining us.
    Name:  Öhman.png
Views: 756

    Most likely to link up with Öhman is Bun-Dawda Sowe who is a 20 year old CB.

    but he is in tight competition for the second spot by Robert Åstedt, The Swedish 21 year old is seen as our third pick but you never know.
    Name:  Åstedt.png

    At the LB position there is a slight hole that we are trying to fill because we only have one left back in the first team but its no other than Jernade Meade! who has been trained in Arsenal and Swansea before trying his luck here in Sweden.

    Midfielders

    The midfielders we field is a force to be reckoned with... or at least noticed but one star we have is Anel Raskaj despite pledging his nationality as a Kosovan he has only been applying his trade in Sweden and Norway making around 110 games in Allsvenskan and 130 in the Norwegian Premier League.
    Name:  raskaj.png

    Another CM we have is Mauricio Albornoz who is the older brother of Chilean international Miiko Albornoz

    Then we have the Dench, The myth The legend, Emmanuel Frimpong, Making appearances for Arsenal in the Premier League and playing in the Russian league and hopefully he can impress in Allsvenskan.

    A guy who is going to try and fight for a spot in the team is Alexander Michel who is a 24 year old who has played in Syrianska in all of his career.

    We have a Austrian CDM who has experience from Colorado Rapids in the MLS playing 14 games and also playing 20 games for Iverness in Scotland, It's Thomas Piermayr!

    Striker/Wingers

    First out of all our Wingers is Omar Eddahri who is looking like a decent winger for this level.

    We have another international player by the name of Thomas Ulimwengu who is a Tanzanian Winger.

    Long and short term goals


    Today we are going over my short term and long term goals with the team.
    To start of i don't have any licences or any past experience except
    sunday league football which is what i have in real life, So we are going to grow me as a manager and at the same time make AFC a threat to be reckoned with.

    Goals for me

    -Get licenses
    (Trying to get as many as possible in an attempt to get some recognition in the world)

    -Get in Allsvenskan and Swedens most successful managers of all time

    Allsvenskan

Name:	Allsvenskan HOF.png

    Sweden
    Click image for larger version

Name:	Sweden HOF.png
Views:	712
Size:	263.4 KB
ID:	1109428

    So there isn't very far from us to start being in the Allsvenskan HOF as Stuart Baxter who sits at 10th only has two cups and two league wins and for Sweden's HOF we will need a little more as Benny Lennartsson has two Norwegian cups and one league title.

    Goals for AFC Eskilstuna

    -Become a major Allsvenskan team

    Short term is about surviving as we probably have the weakest team mixed with the team with the least experience but we will fight for survival anyways and with it being three teams that get relegated (Two straight, One plays a playoff)

    Long term we are aiming for the title and winning the Swedish Cup and hopefully we can do this before 2020 and if that happens we can re-aim the bow for our 2025 target which is.

    -Qualify for CL/EL yearly.

    Only way to raise the Swedish teams are by playing regularly in European football and our short term goal is to debut in Europe before 2020 and being a stable team in at least Europa League by 2025, The long term is going to be that we are gonna be a playoff/winning CL team by 2040, but i don't know if we will ever make it that far.

    -Becomes Swedens best youth developer.

    If we are going to play CL/EL football with a shoestring budget compared to the rest of Europe then we will need to develop the best youngsters every year and hopefully sell for a lot (Think around 10Million Euro every season) or have them play in the team.

    We have a cooperation with Eskilstuna City which have a decent youth team and hopefully we can use it to the fully from day one.

    -Become Eskilstunas best team in the Allsvenskan Marathon table.

    Two Eskilstuna teams have played in Allsvenskan before us IK City (Eskilstuna City) and IFK Eskilstuna. This means that we are right now the third best Eskilstuna team in history and i wan't to overtake them both by 2025 as IK City only played one season in the highest division and only got a measly 7 points (Second to last of all teams in Allsvenskan History) they played in the 1925/26 season so they will be fairly easy to overtake.

    IFK Eskilstuna played 14 seasons at the highest league and have 317 points from 317 games and they last played in Allsvenskan in the 1964/65 season and their points means if we average a point per game we will need to play in 10.5 seasons before we catch up to them so that means our goal is to overtake them in eight season while they needed 14 seasons for the points meaning we will almost need to be twice as fast in our points gathering.

    Friendlies and Pre-Allsvenskan predicition

    The friendlies went fairly well scoring 17 and only letting 2 goals in during 6 games.

    But we played five local teams including our U21 teams and Dalkurd FF who plays in Superettan the division below us.

    but we impressed with our possesion and scoring chances and i hope we can bring it in to the start of the season.

    Transfer roundup spring window 2017

    we didn't do that much in the transfer window accept broadening our squad with what was needed because we started with being over our budget.

    The first one we signed is our new third GK and he goes by the name of

    Jernade Meade is turning out to be a quality Allsvenskan player tearing up the left wing scoring and assisting left, right and center. The rest of the team also played okey despite the lack of striker playing well.

    Summer Break

    In Sweden there is a break over the month of June and i decided to take full advantage of this by booking and playing four friendlies that are better than us and that was
    Hammarby, AIK, DIF and RB Leipzig who finished third in the Bundesliga!

    And boy did we play well so well infact that we won all four games with 12 goals for and 4 against.

    Chidi Omeje had a great month scoring six goals with three of them coming against RBL.


    Contracts & Transfers

    We managed to sign all our current players accept one who demanded a move to Europe so despite him being very important to us i took the decision to let him leave for his value now rather than on a free in November.

    Only player to leave at the moment and that is Omar Eddahri who left us for the highest league in Turkey but we got 100K for a player on a six month contract and his value was 105 so i ain't complaining to much.

    And the only player we signed was Carlos Javier on a free after he left as a bosman from Ebro in Spain who has experience from Zaragoza, And we technically got two new players as i recalled Bazoukou from his loan after he scored 11 in 11 and 5 assists to go with that.


    Next update will be from the league again.

    We had a lot of good opponents in this month as we pass the midpoint of the season.

    1 - 1

    Thomas Ulimwengu
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-malm%C3%B6-ff-afc-1-1.png

    A strong game after the break as we play even with arguably the best team in Sweden.

    AFC Eskilstuna - Jönköpings Södra


    0 - 3
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-j%C3%B6nk%C3%B6ping-0-3.png

    Embarrassing result from the team as we just aren't firing on all cylinders at the striker position, or well Thomas is but you can't trust one striker in the whole squad.

    AFC Eskilstuna - IFK Norrköping


    1 - 4

    Cris (Mohammed Buya Turay)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-norrk%C3%B6ping-1-4.png

    Swedens second best team and again you can clearly see why they are with this performance.

    AFC Eskilstuna - AIK


    1 - 1

    Ferid Ali (Ulimwengu)
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-aik-1-1.png

    Ferid Ali got his first goal of the season by scoring a volley from 25 yards out against a team that should be title contenders.

    A great performance from the team as the Ali-Ulimwengu team scored again and hopefully they can keep this up in to the next month.

    Ulimwengu with his second POTM award in the same amount of time, has impressed me a lot.


    Next month we will play some middle league teams and also enter the Swedish cup who starts in the fall and end in the spring so hopefully we can qualify for the group stage.

    a stable month from the team as we settle in and play after the tactic again.

    AFC Eskilstuna - BK Häcken

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-bk-h%C3%A4cken-0-0.png

    A boring game which we should have won but their goalkeeper played very well.

    0 - 2

    Emmanuel Frimpong

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-ifk-gtb-afc-0-2.png

    IFK Göteborg seems to have a real problem playing against us as we now have won both games against them.


    Östersunds FK - AFC Eskilstuna

    0 - 0
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-%C3%96fk-afc-0-0.png

    Another draw, and another game we should have won, sadly the team wasn't up for it today.


    AFC Eskilstuna - Kalmar FF

    0 - 1
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-kalmar-0-1.png

    Kalmar played the Counter attacking tactic and i think had one or two real opportunities and sadly they where efficient and scored one of them and then parked the bus for the remainder of the game.


    Swedish Cup 2nd round

    Ljungskile SK - AFC Eskilstuna

    Falling out of form again and also falling in the league table.

    GIF Sundsvall - AFC Eskilstuna


    1 - 1


    Bruno Da Cruz
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-gif-afc-1-1.png
    Despite the team as usually outplaying the opponents and then let in a weak counter attack goal in but Da Cruz could at least celebrate for his first goal for the club.

    AFC Eskilstuna - Örebro SK


    2 - 2

    Emmanuel Frimpong X2 (Piermayr)
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-%C3%96rebro-2-2.png
    Frimpong had an amazing game but sadly he missed a penalty which in the end cost us two points as Igboanike showed why you should never surrender.

    Hammarby IF - AFC Eskilstuna

    2 - 0
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-hif-afc-2-0.png
    Hammarby is simply outplaying us very easily and outmaneuvering us without problems.

    Mauricio Albornoz
    Emil Fritzell PEN
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-elfsborg-afc-3-2.png
    Emil Fritzell made his first Allsvenskan goal but sadly the team didn't concentrate all the way in and gave away a cheap goal to also give up the point and with only six games left we feel like we need as many points as possible.

    Falling down the table and getting uncomfortably close to the relegation party.

    Chidi Omeje X2 (Da Cruz X2)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-dif-3-2.png
    Third time this year that we play DIF and third time we win over them, Bruno Da cruz dominated the midfield and didn't let DIF control the play and he was making important passes left right and centre.


    AFC Eskilstuna - Halmstad BK


    2 - 1

    Haris Cirak
    Chidi Omeje (Meade)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-hbk-2-1.png
    Another game against a team that is below us in the league and we made the most of it as we ran out deserved 2-1 winners and we did it well.

    A lot of suspensions and injuries for this match and the first half was a train wreck as we went 4-1 down before Chidi gave us some hope at the end of the first half. I took advantage of this and fired them up and we staged a big comeback eventually drawing in one of the best second halfs this team has done.


    AFC Eskilstuna - Malmö FF

    0 - 4

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-malm%C3%B6-0-4.png
    Erlandsson is only on loan at us and it felt like he just wanted to leave this game and the game against Jönköping so i decided to give Candel the rest of the season since he will probably be our starting goalkeeper come next season.


    AIK - AFC Eskilstuna

    5 - 1


    Ludvig Öhman (Michel)

Views: 186

    Tim had an okey season for being newcomers in this league and i would like to keep him but Nottingham are simply asking for to much to make it worth our while.

    Didn't exactly have the greatest games of his career but hopefully he can play better next year as he will be our main goalkeeper as it stands right now.



    Defenders


    Gustav Jarl
    Name:  Jarl tots.png
Views: 188

    Jarl was basically our only RWB accept Piermayr who kinda plays out there but we are definitely looking to strengthen this position for the next season.

    Ludvig Öhman

    Ludvig was our best Defender this season, and i will expect the same from him when the new season begins but hopefully with some better players around him.

    Alexander Michel

    Name:  michel tots.png
Views: 193

    Our own little Milner, been playing a little all over the place and hopefully he can learn the RWB position so we can feel safe abut that side of our defense.

    Wow what a season he had for us! got in the TOTS for the league and really grew both one and two levels as a player this year. definitely trying to sign him on a longer contract.

    Thomas Piermayr

    Transfer special 2018

    We made some real squad strengthening transfers to prepare for the new season and hopefully they will also give us a nice money boost if they ever move.

    --- IN ---

    I said we wouldn't sign any more Goalkeepers as Candel is a more than qualified for the number one spot but i saw that José Aurelio Suárez who we signed from Barca B for 125K and he is even better then Candel.

    Name:  Suarez (Aurelio).png
Views: 166
Size:  87.3 KB

    Only reason for signing Suárez in the first place was because i was looking at Sergi Palencia, A fullback who cost us a whopping 160K to sign.

    And the last money costing signing was Mai Hilmarsson who is hopefully Iceland's next superstar and he cost us 44K to sign.

    Then we managed to snag Anton Lans away from Gefle IF on a free as he wanted a new challenge.

    We also signed a different CB in the name of Carl Starfelt who played for Brommapojkarna before leaving on a free.

    He only joined on a one year deal but if he performs we will definitely look to lengthen the contract

    Squad Review 2018

    It´s time again to review the squad for the upcoming season, where we will hopefully be in the top 10 for the first time.
    also my internet is still struggling so that is why some of the players have the old picture instead of a new one, hopefully it will be fixed today.

    Goalkeepers


    We knew that Erlandsson would be needing a new goalkeeper since Erlandsson loan deal ended and we signed Jacobo Candel to fill that spot.
    Name:  jacobo (candel).png

    But we also managed to snag a even better goalkeeper from Spain and he goes by the name José Aurelio Suárez!

    Defenders

    We weren't the strongest team in defense so that is what we have been working on for the most part of the pre season.

    And we also made some fairly good signings and one of them who decided to join us was Sergi Palencia from Barca B who will be our starting RWB.
    Name:  Palencia (Palermo).png
Views: 143
Size:  88.1 KB

    We also strengthen our side with some quality coming from Allsvenskan itself signing Anton Lans on a free from Gefle IF

    Name:  Lans.png
Views: 141
Size:  47.6 KB

    we also decided to keep Gustav Jarl as he has been an okey depth player to have in the squad and he is also fairly young too (22)
    Name:  Jarl (Andersson).png
Views: 137
Size:  45.4 KB

    after that we have bench/depth player Thomas Piermayr who will still be a bench player for us.

    Alexander Michel will look to play better than last year if he wants to keep a spot on the starting eleven.

    But he will have to fight with Carl Starfelt this year for said spot, and it will not be easy.

    Robert Åstedt is a player who is about to join the bench on every game but is still a fair bit of the starting eleven.

    Carlos Javier is a player we signed last year and he will be a depth player behind all newly signed Spaniards

    and last but not least is Jernade Meade who is still our number one LWB and will probably be for years to come.

    Friendlies and Swedish Cup


    In Sweden we play the group stage of the Swedish cup in the pre season and we did okey but should have done better.

    The friendlies went well as we played in the first official AFC Cup and this year AIK, DIF and HIF were playing and we eventually won our own cup and i'm planning on doing this every year.
    but if we look at the other games there was a lot of goals forward and not much getting in against us and we will try to use this to our advantage going in to Allsvenskan.

    Now on to the Swedish Cup.
    We had Qviding FF, IFK Värnamo and IFK Norrköping in our group and we are set to finish second in the group and it's only one team who moves on through to the playoffs.

    Qviding FF - AFC Eskilstuna

    April 2018

    seven league games in April as we quick start the league.

    Örgryte - AFC Eskilstuna

    1 - 1

    Chidi Omeje (Raskaj)
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-%C3%B6rgryte-afc-1-1.png
    We were set on winning this game until they scored a really lucky goal in extra time to steal two points for us.

    AFC Eskilstuna - Malmö FF

    0 - 2
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-malm%C3%B6-ff-0-2.png
    Facing of against Malmö FF is always going to be a tough challenge as they are one of the best teams in Sweden and Scandinavia as well and they outplayed us with ease.

    Halmstad BK - AFC Eskilstuna


    3 - 1

    Bruno Da Cruz (Ulimwengu)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-hbk-afc-3-1.png
    Halmstad is a team we should beat it felt like nothing was working and eventually they ran out as 3-1 winners.

    AFC Eskilstuna - Jönköpings Södra IF


    1 - 0

    Gustav Jarl (Da Cruz)
    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-jsif-1-0.png
    Our first win of the new season and it took us four rounds before we could get it, hopefully this won't keep happening as we then would be set for relegation.

    AFC Eskilstuna - Elfsborg IF

    2 - 1

    Emmanuel Frimpong
    Chidi Omeje (Jarl)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-elfsborg-2-1.png
    Jarl is once again showing of his skills as a wing back after Palencia is injured and will be gone for a long time, but he will not be missed as much if Jarl keeps this form up for the duration of the season.

    AIK - AFC Eskilstuna

    0 - 4

    Máni Hilmarsson (Omeje)
    Chidi Omeje X2 (Matic)
    Sasa Matic (Hilmarsson)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-aik-afc-0-4.png
    What. A. Game.

    Incredible the whole team just went on a tear and AIK didn't do anything to stop it and i'm impressed of the guys and how they played.

    AFC Eskilstuna - BK Häcken

    2 - 0

    Giorgos Samaras X2 Pen (Jarl)

    "Creating History" A AFC Eskilstuna Story-afc-h%C3%A4cken-2-0.png
    Another great game (Insert DJ Khaled Joke Here)

    Samaras was given a chance to impress and he managed to score two goals and seal the deal against Häcken but where does that leave us in the league?

    Golden Boot


    We had one player in the top of the scoring charts and hopefully he can keep it up next year.
    But more about him soon because now we are presenting the top ten goalscorers in Allsvenskan 2018!

    Number 1 is unsurprisingly the most experienced striker in Allsvenskan fielding playing time in the Eredevise, Premier League, La Liga and even the Bundesliga! it's of course Marcus Rosenberg who scored 18 goals in 27 games for Malmö FF and no one was really close to him.

    Second after him is a experienced striker from IFK Norrköping who is a Swedish journeyman and that man is Sebastian Andersson who managed to score 13!

    Third player and the best player in the league this season by far, Most MOTM, split winner of assists league and split second in the golden boot and best average in the league. It's Chidi Omeje!

    Name:  OMeje TOTS.png

    Dench is playing really well, but I'm forced to sub him out every game as his condition only allows him to play 60 minutes or he is already on a yellow card by then. will probably play less this year and become a more lockdown kind of sub.

    Our main creative midfielder is starting to get past his prime and i took the chance to cash in on him and sold him to Hammarby for his value with a one year loan deal so when he finally goes to Hammarby he will be 30 years old and hopefully have had his two best season at us instead.

    Awesome thread! I am currently playing with Jonkopings Sodra, I joined them in my 2nd year and have been here for 4 years now. I really like managing in Sweden and you are so right, European football is vital to improve the club. I have been pumping European money into the clubs youth and training facilities and bargaining for decent free agents. I also put reasonably high release clause fees for better players that I sign for free. I have made a few million like this with bigger clubs just swooping in and playing release fees. Most I got was 2.6 million euros. Keep up the awesome thread!
