It was about 2am when the call came through. I don’t normally have my phone on “loud” when I’m asleep but I guess I forgot to switch it when I went down. “Razzo!” “Razzo!” The voice was loud. “Razzo, mi salvatore!” The voice was drunk or high. “Razzo, I need you! Come to me now!” It was Berlusconi.Continue reading “Berlusconi’s Dream – Yes, but what’s his fantasy?”
Bonjourno! Welcome to quarta parte of
Berlusconi’s Musto’s Dream. When I left you last time, we had been trending upwards in our “promote or bust” season in Serie C. Well, I have news on that:
So this went left, really fast. Our hero, Il Razzo, had barely re-positioned the picture of the wife and kids for the fourth time upon the desk in his office at Brianteo when #ForzaBerlusconi entered:
“Razzo, it’s time I left you. You’ve made great strides in your time here to date; far outstripping the guidance I could ever have given you. So I’ve sold the club to Luca. He’s a good man. Don’t worry, he’ll give you as much time as I had planned on. Anyway, it’s back to the European Council with me. Good luck! Ciao!”Continue reading “Berlusconi’s Dream – Uhhh what?”
“You were informed that promotion to Serie B was the principle aim of the 19/20 season. You have failed to achieve this. As such, Cristian, you are in breach of your agreements with me and I must now terminate your contract. It pains me to do this to you, a proud Rossoneri, but Monza must advance!”Continue reading “Berlusconi’s Dream – And so it Begins”
Welcome to the Seconda Parte of Berlusconi’s Dream. In this edition we’ll discuss the tactic (yes, just one so far) that I’ve been working on during the Beta and then I’ll run you through a few of the players I’m hoping will still be around when our run for promotion commences!Continue reading “Berlusconi’s Dream – Tactics & Key Players”
“They will cut their hair. They will remove visible piercings. They will be polite to referees. They will not dive or simulate to win free kicks. This is a modern traditional club, Razzo. We are a club of gentlemen and the players will comply. Now, I remind you that we should be competing in Serie B next season. Cristian, bless him, was unable to achieve that. I charge you with that target. Win the league this season and let us take the next step to show Italy what is possible with the strength of our conviction and the ability of our identity. Forza Monza! Forza Berlusconi! Forza Italia!!”Continue reading “Berlusconi’s Dream”
After ending the 2016 season we ended with promotion, in this post we’re doing some analysis to see how well our attacking players performed. At the moment I don’t have radars for defenders but may in future. If you haven’t already, you can see my end of season review here.
Sorry I haven’t posted recently but due to exams and being on holiday I haven’t had much time for FM. But, I’m back now and plan of storming through the seasons with this save with regular short posts. So keep your eyes peeled!
Sitting down and double clicking that Football Manager (FM) icon, what do you plan, what do you hope to achieve… for myself, it is about realism, looking to push the game to the limit, taking it as close as I can to ‘the real world’.
First season is done which you can read here, and I’ve made my preparations, signings which you can see here for the 2016 season and summarised it in this short post. I have started the season by playing the Upper League Cup which finishes before the regular season starts.
