Let's bring the "Dragoes" back to the top of Portugal and Europe. And World.

Discussion
:: Report #1 ::



I took over Portugal giants FC Porto. This is one of my favourite clubs (otherwise I'm United fan) and I cannot just sit and watch Benfica ruling
Portuguese Primeira Liga which has been happening for few years now. I want the Dragons to be on the top of Portugal again. And then also Europe and World.

I'm already at the start of November so I will just quickly go through the important things happened so far.







:: TRANSFERS ::

OUT

At the start I was already very happy with the squad so I decided not to make big changes. The squad was very huge so I had to sell players I didn't
need and loan out some youngsters who are in our long term plans.

http://i.imgur.com/ObYMOf8.jpg


IN

We also didn't need to spend a lot. For the first team I signed just centre-back Frederico Venancio who replaced Martins Indi after he was sold to BVB.
I also signed 3 yougsters from my country (Slovenia) who have bright future and will play for U19/B team this season. Gaston Pereiro is also planned as
a first team member of course but he was loaned back to PSV for this season immediately after he signed for us.

http://i.imgur.com/I7X7DQ5.jpg






:: FRIENDLIES ::

We played six friendly matches and I can say I'm very satisfied with our performances. We also tried few different formations.

http://i.imgur.com/bgsLPIg.jpg






:: FORMATION ::

This is the formation we are going to use at the start. Hopefully it's gonna be successful. As I said we tried various options in the pre-season,
but this one seems to be the one who fits our players the most and I believe the one I can get the best out of my lads with.

The next update is coming at the end of January's transfer window.
Good luck with this. Always love a save in Portugal, as much for the transfers as anything else!

:: Report #2 ::

1 FEBRUARY 2017


Here it is. The new update of my FC Porto story. We're in the start of February and the things have been going very
good for us so far. Even though we disappointed in domestic cups, but were a lot better in more important competitions.


http://i.imgur.com/nolcbH7.png




:: PRIMEIRA LIGA ::

We've been fantastic so far in the league, still undefeated after 18 games. We've also scored the most goals, conceded
the least and had the most clean sheets which say enough of how dominating we have been so far.

The biggest surprise of the season is definitely Portimonense, our feeder club, which promoted to the Primeira last season.
On the other side, Sporting are another surprise (negative). After winning first 6 games in a row, then managed to win only
3 times in 11 games.

We also have league's top goalscorer, Aboubakar has scored 12 goals and is one goal ahead of Jonas who joined City few days ago.
In third place is Alfredo from Portimonense with 9 goals.

:: DOMESTIC CUPS ::

We have other priorities this season so I didn't take any of both two Portuguese cups too seriously, giving chances
to youngsters and players who haven't been playing really much in the league. We've been knocked out from both quite quickly.


http://i.imgur.com/08PCCEi.jpg






:: CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ::

We got lucky with the group stage draw but we still took matches very seriously. Good performances and 5 wins took
us to the top of group F. In the first knockout round we'll play against Italian side Napoli. It's gonna be our first real European test.


http://i.imgur.com/9feSCY0.jpg






:: JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW ::


OUT

Even though the first half of the season was successful for us, we were pretty busy in January. We sold Bueno and Soares,
who didn't play really much, got a lot of money from transfers of Danilo Pereira, who wanted to leave to the bigger club and
Jesus Corona. We also sold Walter, who returned from the loan in the start of January and wasn't in my plans.


http://i.imgur.com/kyfWc7m.jpg



IN

Argentine striker Lucas Alario was our first signing. The deal was arranged a month of two ago and he's already showing
his worth - scoring 6 goals in his first two Liga appearances.

Following Corona's departure we had to fill the gap and sign another winger. So we signed Gerard Deulofeu and Sidney Sam - hoping
we can make Deulofeu's transfer permanent at the end of the season (future fee: 4 million euros).

We also needed signings in the midfield after Danilo Pereira left us. And I believe we made very good business by signing
Yann M'Vila and Mario Lemina for combined 25 million euros.

Hello, I like to see you so far. Mainly because I am Portuguese and second because a career with Portuguese club rarely appears here. Although he is not an adept of this club, it is always good to see a Portuguese club in a career
So far so good! So keep it up, hug.
Cheers, mate.
keep on going imma wait until sept. 1 to start another game with Porto!
I'm finishing the season so you can expect the next career update very soon.

But first I'm sharing goal of the season with you. Vincent Aboubakar.

Great Goal
:: 2016/17 :: Post-season report :: #3 ::

25 MAY 2017


My first season at FC Porto is finished. And I'm satisfied with it. We reached our most important goal and I'm really
excited about next season - especially because of the squad I will have (there are some transfers already arranged).
But that will have to wait, now is the time for 2016/17 season review.


http://i.imgur.com/nolcbH7.png




:: PRIMEIRA LIGA ::

And here it is... The most important goal for this season which was reached. To bring the title back to Porto. We were
really consistent, almost remained unbeaten for whole season. Our one and only Liga defeat came against Benfica in matchday 32.

Top goalscorer also comes from our team - this is Aboubakar with 18 league goals. We also had the assist leader in
Gerard Deulofeu (10 assists) - btw we are still in negotiations for his permanent transfer.

:: CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ::

I have already informed you about our unsuccessful domestic cups appearances in previous report, so we go on to the
Champions League. After great performances in the group stage we felt we had good chances against Napoli. And really
we were coming back from the San Paolo with very positive result - 2:2.

Leg 2.. We couldn't have wished a better start. 5th minute and Aboubakar put us in front. But unfortunately, we only managed
to hold the lead until 25th minute. The equalising goal totally killed us (who knows why), Napoli outclassed us and win deservedly.

:: PLAYER STATS ::

Stats from all competitions.


http://i.imgur.com/P1WWksb.jpg






:: YOUTH INTAKE 2017 ::

That moment when I saw the players in this year's youth intake and noticed that boy I told to myself I must share it with you.
Is this the future legend? Look at that awesome potential. BUT. We have to be patient because a lot of players showed great
potential and then never made it. But I believe Fernando will be different. One thing is 100% sure. He'll definitely get a chance to shine from me.

:: SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW - Preview ::

The summer is already here and one of the most exciting things for all football fans is definitely a transfer window. All the
departures and arrivals will be revealed in the next update. The only thing I can say is our fans will be more than happy with
our work. I can assure you that. We have already arranged 6 arrivals and also 3 departures. And we're still looking for 1 new player.

Fernando looks promising

I agree with others, I would have liked to see more Portuguese save on here

Yes, he really does. Hopefully Portugal will finally get a top class striker.
:: 2017/18 :: Pre-season report :: #4 ::

11 AUGUST 2017


Hi guys. After good first season when we brought the league title back to Dragao, now is the time for an "upgrade".
Hopefully this season will be even better. At first we just have to do better in domestic cups where we totally disappointed
last year. Also in the Champions League I think we can go at least to the quarter-final with the team we have.



http://i.imgur.com/nolcbH7.png




:: SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW ::


OUT

There has been quite a lot changes in this transfer window. So far no less than 43 players has left us. 24 permanent deals/free transfers
and 19 players have been loaned out. Mexicans Herrera and Layun and Spaniard Casillas are the only from the first team who left.
Herrera was not in my plans anymore and Layun wanted to leave because he wasn't used as often as he would have liked.
Casillas' contract expired and we decided not to extend it so he left on a free transfer - joined Brighton already.

And we still expect one more departure. Unfortunately our last season's top goalscorer Vincent Aboubakar decided
that he wants to play in better league. Atletico Madrid are interested in him for a long time now, Vincent is also interested,
and now we're still waiting for their first offer. He is valued at 24m€, but it's definitely not the money we're prepared to let him go.


http://i.imgur.com/Q2VKRXb.jpg




IN

And here's even more interesting topic - arrivals. Also lots of them, we have spent 95 million euros.


Here's first one and one of the biggest transfers in Portugal this summer, Federico Bernardeschi. He didn't play a lot
at Juventus and Bianconeri decided to sell him for 11m€. Of course he'll be my first choice at right wing.

http://i.imgur.com/RkbEpJm.jpg




As I said Aboubakar wants out and I didn't wait long to bring a replacement. Promising French striker Moussa Dembele
is coming from Celtic for 8m€. He's had great pre-season so I'm still not decided who will be my first striker. He's going to
compete with Lucas Alario for the starting spot.

http://i.imgur.com/YZOCN0e.jpg




This is the player I've liked for a long time - Bruno Fernandes. Last season he signed for Sporting but didn't get enough
chances so he decided to move on. We spent 6m€ on him. He'll be a backup to Brahimi at AMC, also can do a job as a MC.

http://i.imgur.com/XSPogH3.jpg




I'm sure we all know this lad very well. Lincoln, a big talent from Gremio who we signed for 5,5m€. He will also have to
fight for AMC position with Brahimi and Fernandes. I was thinking to loan him out but at the end decided to give him a chance in our first team.

http://i.imgur.com/dveyEhJ.jpg




Another wonderkid. Emanuel Mammana signed for Zenit last year but wasn't really in their first plans so they loaned him
out to Saint-Etienne in January. He was solid in France so I decided to sign him for 8m€. He's still 21 and I'm sure has great future.

http://i.imgur.com/1BbqgsU.jpg




The next one is another great talent who so far couldn't do it at the big stage. Memphis Depay was a flop at United and
then tried to save his career at Lyon. Last season was decent for him. He did enough to break our transfer record at 28m€.

http://i.imgur.com/Rnt37lZ.jpg




The only player who joined us on a free transfer is Miguel Angel Moya. Our replacement for Iker Casillas. Experienced
Spaniard didn't play at all in his last season at Atletico (1 appearance) but I hope he can regain his form at Dragao.

http://i.imgur.com/1jJeHTO.jpg




And the last one is 23 years old Portuguese centre-back Ruben Semedo. Another product of Sporting Lisbon who played
at Villarreal last season. To get him we had to meet his release clause which was 27,5m€. I expect him to be Portugal's top CB in coming years.

http://i.imgur.com/SbhrEsX.jpg






:: FRIENDLIES ::

We conceded way too many goals but it's also consequence of rotationing - I gave chances to youngsters from U19
team and lots of players who came back from loans. And I can say we did pretty well against the big teams like PSG and Milan despite losing.


http://i.imgur.com/uPLXCLH.jpg






:: SUPERTAÇA 2017 ::

As expected, here's our first trophy in the new season. We completely outclassed Vitoria Guimaraes and won 2-0.
I also played Aboubakar, that could be his last game for our club. In this case, thanks for all Vincent.


http://i.imgur.com/TQ5DWtD.jpg
Good start to the new season with that Supercup.Vincent is a really good striker ( watched him when he was on loan at Besiktas ) Good luck in the next games !

Yes, he's really good. Strong, quick and very prolific. But unfortunately he wanted to leave and we already sold him to Atletico. Thanks a lot mate.


And here, just for fun.. Look how my today looks like.
