Season 1-Welcome to Hungary and Ferencvarosi Torna Club !


The Club !


Ferencvárosi Torna Club, known as Ferencváros (Hungarian: [ˈfɛrɛnt͡svaːroʃ]), is a professional football club based in Ferencváros, Budapest, Hungary, that competes in the Nemzeti Bajnokság I, the top flight of Hungarian football. Ferencváros was founded in 1899 by Ferenc Springer and a group of local residents of Budapest's ninth district, Ferencváros.Ferencváros is best known internationally for winning the 1964–65 edition of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup after defeating Juventus 1–0 in Turin and for reaching the final in the same competition in 1968, when they lost to Leeds United and the final in the 1974–75 season of the European Cup Winners' Cup, lost to Dynamo Kiev.

The best-known part of the club is the well-supported men's football team – the most popular team in the country.The parent multisport club Ferencvárosi TC divisions include the women's football, women's handball, men's futsal, men's ice hockey, men's handball, men's water polo, cycling, gymnastics, athletics, wrestling, curling and swimming teams, some of which are highly successful.

The club colours are green and white, and the club's mascot is a green eagle, hence another of the club's nicknames, The Green Eagles.


Kits for the season 19/20

Groupama Arena


Groupama Aréna is a multi-purpose stadium in Budapest, Hungary and the home of Ferencvárosi TC.With a capacity of 22,000, Groupama Arena is currently the largest stadium in Hungary (the larger Ferenc Puskás Stadium was demolished, to be replaced by a new one in 2019). Groupama lies on the grounds of the former Flórián Albert Stadium, the club's previous home, which was demolished in 2013.

The Squad


This is the squad for now...and the first eleven that the team will use in the official games in UEL Qualifications and the Hungarian First League.

Transfer Targets

Oleksandr Zubkov

Ihor Kharatin

Danylo Ihnatenko


Hajrá Fradi
@bigmattb28 Haha y i know right well ill be honest i was a kid watching only Premier League Seria A etc and never thought that one day ill be a HUGE TRUE fan of Ludogorets a Bulgarian side they just have a thing that i can't find in any other team so that must be it for you too. PS ( my friends are like dude are you crazy they are a Bulgarian side you guys have no future in Europe etc ) #WeAreLudogorets

Season 4 ! Making a name in Europe !


Bulgarian First League



Started the season with a derby game against Botev Plovdiv and everything was going fine until the first game against CSKA-Sofia when we lost 1:0 at Ludogorets Arena and gave the 1st place to them.....The games in the european tournaments is making the league more difficutl than it should be but all the tiredness and the right motivation playing one week with Real Madrid and the other with Slavia or Arda ( no offense tho ) Yet we have 2 points gap to close to get on the 1st place in the league.

Bulgarian Cup


In the last season the team lost the final for the Bulgarian Cup but this season the team won a place in the semi-finals once again and will face Lokomotiv Plovdiv in a two legs semi-final game.

Bulgarian Super Cup

The team won his 5th Bulgarian Super Cup against the Bulgarian Cup holders Botev Plovdiv after 1:1 in the FT and winning 5:4 on penalties.This title makes Ludogorets the team with the most Super Cups with 1 more than CSKA-Sofia and 2 more than Levski-Sofia,

UEFA Champions League


The team started really well in the Qualifications of the UCL with 12:0 victory against Llapi and eliminated them 19:0 on aggraget after that "Orlite"eliminated Vardar (Skopie) and Qarabaq to reach the play-offs where the Greek side Olympiakos said STOP to the Bulgarian side eliminating them after victory at their ground with 2:0 and losing 1:3 at Ludogorets Arena where the Green Eagles were so close to reach the group stages but Olympiakos managed to win on away goals..in a very dramatic game.The good news are that if Ludogorets manage to win the league again the next season they will qualify directly without playing in the Qualifications.

UEFA Europa League



As a team that has a goal to play in the CL group playing in Europa League was easier task and the team showed it after winning the group stage with 12 points while Rennes finished 2nd also with 12 points.The team played some really good games like the oppening game against Rennes won with 6:2 at Ludogorets Arena or the victory against FCSB at their ground in Romania with 1:2.

The team will face KRC Genk in the First Knockout Stage and for the first time the team is shown as a favourite to win the tie this shows only that Ludogorets is making a name in Europe and we are one step close the be the kings of the Balkans,(Well we have to improve the things that happens in games like the one vs Olympiakos but still )



With the money of selling Martin Minchev the team signed with not too much players but a little but with quality.As you know the team likes to buy from Romania and Brazil and have a core of Brazilian and Romanian players we decided to continue that tradition so we got the Brazilian Goalkeeper Thiago and the Romanian winger Maliat.Nguinad was just another addition to bolster the quality in the team and he will play in the Wing Back position.
PS: Ivan Saponjic was signed while i write this in the winter transfer window so we will see what he will bring to the team in the 2nd half of the season !


Ludogorets sold his wonderkid Martin Minchev to the italian Salernitana for 6.25M euro which was a pretty good deal for the Bulgarian side in a finnancial way but still it showed that still we can't compete with the teams in the bigger leagues.....the team also decided to side ways with Jody Lukoki and Jablonsky.


Little off-topic wanted to thank Maribor fans and club for the one more great dramatic crazy game in our club history and to say that you guys also deserved to qualify in the UEL Group Stage in real life.Can't wait for the games tho against Espanyol,Ferenc and CSKA Moscow

So Close But So Far Away - Ludogorets Season 3 Ends.


Bulgarian First League




Once again we managed to win the league title ( so much easier this time ) but something felt off like it wasn't enough Ludogorets is a team that need to dominate to win everything possible and not only the league ....anyway the team played good and showed once more that its not ready to give up on the throne.The last 2 games the team used reserves as the title was already won.Also we shoudl notice that CSKA had an awful season finishing 5th and wont taste the european tournaments the next season.


Bulgarian Cup


We had 2 season that we were eliminated in the Quarter-Finals...this season we managed to reach the final to lose 2:1 against Botev Plovdiv abd get the silver medals only which is not enough for a club like Ludogorets....

Europa League


Reaching the 2nd Knockout Round and eliminating Ajax in the 1st Round was something new for us.....Reaching that stage of the tournament can bring only positives to all of us in the club players staff ..fans !We had a bad 1st leg against OL but the 2nd was also not enough to make the dream continue....Well we have next season for that to happen tho !

Season Review and Awards !







See you all next season !

Season 3 - Ludogorets ! Green Eagles in Europe !


Transfers IN & OUT


Ludogorets finally after 2 season managed to sign with their biggest transfer target Mavis Tchibota from Bnei Yehuda for 2.3M.Tchibota will be a key part of the new season squad of Ludogorets and the expectations are high for him.

The other transfers were made in the defensive position where Ludogorets had problems in the last season and Ionita was the only player that was signed to replace his compatriot Ianis Hagi who was sold to Fulham.


Ianis Hagi wasn't the only one who left Ludogorets after only 1 season at the club.Florin Tanase was also sold after the bad spell in Ludogorets ( mostly injured ) to Konyaspor where he will continue his career.
Another striker was also sold cuz he wasn't in the plans of the manager of Ludogorets.Brandao was on loan for 2 years in Salernitana and the team from Italy finally decided to offer him permanent contract.

Bulgarian Super Cup !


Ludogorets lost the Super Cup game on penalties against Levski Sofia after 1:1 FT.The team lost the SuperCup game for the first time since the appointment of their manager.Ludogorets board,staff and players congratulate Levski for their first trophy since 10 years.

Bulgarian First League



Ludogorets started the league with a derby game against Levski Sofia and this time ( not like in the SuperCup game ) they won with 2:1 at home which gave a huge boost of confidence for the next game.....The best pack of games was in October where Ludogorets won all their games and Levski was once again smashed this time 4:1 away from home.Before the break Ludogorets lost his concentration in the league and the team lost to CSKA-Sofia and got a draw against Botev and Cherno More

Yet the team is in the first place with 3 points advantage againts Dunav ( doing a really good season i can be only happy for them ) while the rivals ( Levski and CSKA) are 3rd and 4th.

Bulgarian Cup


Ludogorets reached the Semi-Finals of the tournament for the first time since the appointment of their manager and they will face CSKA-Sofia in that stage,before the semi-finals the Eagles eliminated CSKA 1948( yeah we have one more CSKA ) , Lokomotiv PL, and Botev Galabovo


UEFA Champions League


Ludogorets started the european campaign against Lincoln and with aggregate score of 10:0 the team qualified for the next round where they played with Viitorul ( Romania ).The best game of the campaing was surely the play-off's where Ludogorets and Beitar game was full of drama but the Green Eagles managed to win with 10 players in the 2nd leg after losing the 1st



In the group stage Ludogorets was drawn with PSG,Barcelona and Dynamo Kyiv.The only chance was Kyiv as the games against PSG and Barcelona were the games that the team was going enjoy the moment talking about 3 points against teams like PSG and Barca was kidna impossible.The team started with defeat against Kyiv at Ludogorets Arena and was losing till the home game against Barcelona where Ludogorets won a point after 1:1 and a victory against Kyiv at their home ( sweet revenge ) was enough to qualify them for Europa League Knockout Rounds.

Europa League


Ludogorets will face Ajax FC in the First Knockout Round of Europa League

Soon part 2 of the 3rd season will be uploaded


«This comment has been edited»
Good start to the season in the Serbian league and awesome games in the european tournaments ! As for the games last season in the Europa League just great (unlucky against Schalke tho ) ! Keep it going !
@SirWerGaming Well,i think that the european tournaments make us lose the league games for two reasons ( The right motivation for the games in the league games and the UEFA games ) and ( the tiredness after the traveling and the games there ) .... But in the end we are Ludogorets and the only goal is to win the league and qualify for the CL next year so we SHOULD be able to win it.

End of Season 2 - Ludogorets Dominating !


UEFA Europa League


The first game cost us the victory against Bilbao.Losing 2-6 away from home was pretty much the end of us in the tournament for this year...even that the boys showed that they can fight in the 2nd game it wasn't enough after 3:0 victory at Ludogorets Arena.

Bulgarian First League



So the elimination from the EL helped us in the league and our focus was only and ONLY the league games ( there wasn't anything left tho ) and we once more showed why we are the champions of Bulgaria by winning the league once more and closing the gap of 12 points with CSKA to win it with 12 points more than them and 10 more than Levski.The goal is only one again for the next season .....winning the league and achieving something in the CL.


The game that won us the title.





Hagi and Tucudean are becoming favourites of the fans which is very pleasing to see and hopefully they can give even more to the club.

I'll upload Season 3 soon....Keep following it means much and don't forget the GOAL for the next season achieving great things in CL !
Well done in the new season with Derby ! Tough group in the Europa League but its not impossible you can achieve something against Bordeaux and Fenerbahce ( not in Turkey tho ) !
@SirWerGaming Thanks dude ! I wasnt expecting the money too but that means only one thing its time to improve the team to the maximum.

@tongey Well thanks dude.In the first game against Benfica we were up 1:0 till the 91min then our goalkeeper did a mistake with the pass and the game ended 1:1 .In the away game we were unable to do anything we played in our half without even 1 shot :\

@Dan Thanks dude ! The league title was hard fought but as you said we were unlucky in the CL.I had a plan even before the budget was set so i did it in that season !

Season 2 - Ludogorets - Fly High Eagles !




After the successful last season in the league and the CL the board set a huge amount of transfer budget so i did my best and got my targets.Won't talk about everyone but some of them are really here to improve the class and get Ludogorets to a higher level.

We got Martin Minchev and Davidzada for the future of the team as Martin Minchev was a transfer target of Porto and some Turkish teams but we won the battle for the winger.

Let's talk about the bigger transfers of the team one of them is Stephane Badji from Bursaspor who was relegated we got the player on 3 years contract with the goal to strenght the midfield zone.

Also we got a trio from Romania in the face of Tucudean,Ianis Hagi (son of Gheorghe Hagi) and Florin Tanase to help the team in forward positions ( we had some problems infront of the goal )

The last transfers we made were the signings of Dan Bitton (my personal favourite) and Jorge Intima (Jorginho from AS Saint Etienne )Why Bitton is my favourite well he is young and creative player and its time for someone to step up and replace our legend Marcelinho in the role of Attacking Midfielder.


Bulgarian SuperCup


Started the season with a trophy once again after a victory against Beroe 3:2 FT.

UEFA Champions League


Now let's talk about our elimination from the Champions League after those transfers we did before the season starts.Everything started fine we destroyed Birkirkara FC after that eliminated Duddelange and Qarabag to be drawn against Viktoria Plzen where we got dominated from them in our home Ludogorets Arena to lose 2:3 and in the away game they played so defensive that we didn't managed to get a clear position for goal....So after 14 millions spent we weren't able to qualify this season group stage of the CL.

Bulgarian League



Our problems weren't only in the Champions League actually they started there after our elimination.The team played poorly the whole half season and when i said that i bought that TRIO FROM ROMANIA to strenght our forward position i wasn't expecting this to happen.We were unable to score more than 3 goals most of the matches even against newly promoted teams as Tsarsko Selo and CSKA 1948.

So now there is 11 points gap between us and CSKA-SOFIA which we should be able to close in the 2nd half of the season with more sweat and passion while playing.

Bulgarian Cup


Another disappointing result in the end of a tournament for us.We are out from the Bulgarian Cup once again in the Quarter-Finals this time against Levski-Sofia losing 3:2 FT.

Europa League



The only positive thing right now in the season is our Europa League campaign.We won our group after some remarkable victories against bigger teams than us ( NOT RAPID (No offense Rapid fans )) and now the goal is to get further as possible in the tournament and to win a CL entry if we can't win the league ? Why not ?


The first knockout draw was kinda good for us as we got At.Bilbao and its not the most strogner opponent in EL so we are happy wit the draw and our chances

I'll upload later the 2nd half of the season.Enjoy !

«This comment has been edited»
@SirWerGaming Thank you ! To be honest that fairytale in the Champions League was really amazing and even i was amazed after the victory against Juve in the groups.As for the league its our main objective ( we need it to qualify for CL ).Happy that you guys are following this !

@tongey The group stage performance was amazing yeah but it was one season wonder and we should change that and make it permanently happening ! Happy that you guys are following this !

@Dan Thanks dude ! Happy that you guys are following this !

End Of Season 1


Bulgarian First League


If i have to say something ... that probably will be that it was hell of a season the players were so tired after that RUN in the Champions League and we had so many problems in the league but we managed to win it in the end literally .We've won the league title in the last matchday against Etar with victory 1:0 while our rivals CSKA lost to Cherno More 2:4 at their home.


Two points difference in the last day made us once again Champions.The trophy cabinet already has 8 titles and we gonna fight for another one next season.



UEFA Champions League


Our romance in the Champions League ended against Benfica in Portugal.After 1:1 at Ludogorets Arena and a defeat with 1:0 away from home Benfica eliminated us from the tournament.Well it was a performance to remember.All the players actually amazed me and im pretty sure we can do that happening permanently with a little bit more class and strength in the squad.


Second place for our Goalkeeper Renan in the Champions League !

Season Review



Well we gonna have an interesting summer i think ( Gonna upload the 2nd Season soon ).

Decent season with Colorado.Bad defeat at MLS Finals against Houston tho...Keep it up dude !
Im not a huge fan of Seria A but you are doing pretty fine with Samp in the league ! Unlucky defeat in the Coppa, and a good thing that you renewed the contract of Bereszynski ( heard of him last transfer window was a target of Besiktas ) ! Keep it up dude !
Season 1




One of the goals is of course to make large as possible our trophy room ( most importantly the league ) and to dominate in Bulgaria.



So i wont talk much about the transfers but with the plan i have on my mind i needed them ( and of course Ludogorets got them in real life ) but to make a resume we got Plamen Iliev from Astra as the plan is to sell Renan to a big club for a good offer and Iliev to replace him in the goal.

Serkan,Mahlangu,Bakalov and Popa are here to strenghten the midfield as we need a central midfielder and a wing player ( wont need Popa permanently at the club so thats why we loaned him,you'll understand why later if you read )

As for Nedyalkov and Grigore we need to reduce the mistakes at the defence to the minimum and thats why they are here.





Lets talk a little bit about the club transfer goals.The club avarege age is not that good so we need refreshment and thats why those players are here.If we manage to get them the club will have huge success in the upcoming seasons not only in the League but also in the European Tournaments.

Bulgarian Super Cup


Started the season with a trophy (not that much of important but still its a motivational way to start the season).

Bulgarian First League


First Half Of The Season.


League Table.

Bulgarian League Cup


We are out from the competition after a defeat on penalties against our Rivals CSKA-SOFIA but overall our performance was good and im happy with the way the season is going on ( Next season is ours ! )

Uefa Champions League


Yes we managed to qualify for the group stage and not only that but also to go trough after the groups with some really good games.



Eagles vs Eagles !

First congrats on qualifying for the Knockout Rounds where you got a harsh draw against Leverkusen as i can see Won't talk bout the league as we all know its easy to win it with that quality in your team.Why you didn't gave a little bit more time to Berba ?
The league is looking secured since the beggining The only strong team there is Partizan i think and they have a bad season.As for the Europa League there is still a chance to qualify in 2nd place.A fast question is Jonathan Cafu in your squad ( former Ludogorets player) ?
Well im gonna follow that for sure since i watched my favourite Ludogorets playing against Crvena Zvezda i liked them their style and fans.Good luck in Serbia !
@bigmattb28 Thanks buddy but there is still a lot of work to be done in the club ... tbh we are playing so bad right now and i have some plans in my mind but we will see in the future

First Season-First Dissapointments.


Super Lig


Two defeats in the last 10 games for Besiktas wasn't SO bad but also is not something that can win the league for a team.The team is inconsistent and the bad thing is that doesn't help to the goal of the team.Losing the derby against Fenerbahce was also another strike for the ambitions of the Black Eagles.The team have problems infront of the goal where the top goalscorer is the midfielder of the team and also captain Oghuzah Ozyakup and a fun fact the best pass completion is for Loris Karius.The team needs to improve in that direction if they want the title.



Even that the team lost 2 games in the last 10 games Besiktas is at the 2nd place with 1 point behind from the leader Basaksehir.Galatasaray,Kayserispor and Goztepe are the closest teams to Besitkas with only 1-3 points behind the Black Eagles.Fenerbahce are still strugling ( as in real life thats why i love FM ) but with their victory against Besiktas they are getting closer and closer to Top 5.At the bottom the newly promoted Ankaragucu is trying to get out from the relegation zone where they are with Sivasspor and Erzurumspor too.

Europa League



There is not much to tell as you can see YEP Besiktas is out from the Europa League in the group stages ( in that easy group as would someone say ) The team won the first 2 games but after that something happened and the team lost 2 times against Sigma Olomouc and also the games against Rapid and Zurich.



And no i don't blame Karius for the Europa League this season.

Thanks mate ! Besiktas are my favourite turkish team also.As for Karius i don't know but for now we will stick with him as we have no better option than him.

The goal is to make them the dominant power in Turkey and not just one of the top teams.This season is Europa League the next Champions League ! Thanks buddy !

It's all okay buddy we are all here to talk about football ! As for being sleeping giant yeah Besiktas is not actually sleeping giant but ( in real life winning 2 titles and then giving the spot playing bad games this season also is kinda bad situation for a club from the rank of Besiktas.Now let's talk about Karius (imo is not that bad goalkeeper im not from the people that blame him for th CL final night BUT even if i want a better goalkeeper we can't afford it right now so Besiktas will stick with Karius for now.Thank you for following !

First things First - Beşiktaş On The Road of Greatness !


The Start Of The Turkish Super League !



Besiktas started the season with a defeat at home with 1:3 from Alanyaspor.The games from Europa League for sure tired out the players and the bomb went off in the first league game.In the next games the team won 3 and got a draw against Bursaspor in the first MINI derby for the season ! The next game will see Besiktas facing the newly promoted Ankaragucu at Vodafone Park(Arena) for another important 3 points in the fight for the title.


The League Table after the first 5 games in the league.Pretty early to talk about dominance of one of the teams at the top but right now Trabzonspor and Konyaspor are doing much better than the expected from them the same can be said for Bursa too.Besiktas is at the 3rd place with 3 victories 1 draw and 1 defeat.Basaksehir is at the top with 3 points clear from the rest.

Europa League



Besiktas qualified for the group stage of Europa League after 2 difficult games agains Atalanta.The team got what they needed in Italy and finished the job in Turkey with 2:0 at Vodafone Park.


The UEL draw was kind for Besiktas as the team was in the 1st seed and will face FC Zurich,Rapid Vienna and the first timer Sigma Olomouc.The newly appointed manager set the goal-Winning the group and reaching the final in Baku.

Medical Center


The team was strucked with injuries of 2 main players as Ricardo Quaresma and Ryna Babel were injured and they will miss some of the games in the season as for a start the oppening game in Europa League against Rapid Vienna.As for the first eleven Besiktas will have to give a chance to one more youngster who is playing in the right wing.( The team right now have only Lens as a winger ).It will be really interesting to see how the team will be shaped against Rapid in the next game.


Next Part Coming Soon !

Season 2018-19.First days in Istanbul !


The Club !

Beşiktaş Jimnastik Kulübü (English: Beşiktaş Gymnastics Club), also known simply as Beşiktaş,is a Turkish sports club founded in 1903, and based in the Beşiktaş district of Istanbul, Turkey.

The club's football team is one of the most successful teams in Turkey, having never been relegated to a lower division. The team last won the Turkish Süper Lig championship during the 2016–17 season.

The home ground of Beşiktaş is Vodafone Park, a 41,903 capacity all-seater stadium located next to Dolmabahçe Palace.

Beşiktaş play their home games at Vodafone Park. Completed in 2016, it was built on the site of Beşiktaş's former home, BJK İnönü Stadium.


The Legend Of The Black Eagle.

There is a legend surrounding the nicknaming of the team as "The Black Eagles". Beşiktaş, the title holder of the previous two seasons, started the 1940–41 season with a young and renewed team. As the weeks went by, the team had built up a sizeable lead at the top of the league table. With five weeks remaining in the season, the opponent was Süleymaniye. Beşiktaş had started the game in Şeref Stadium on Sunday 19 January 1941, with the following players: Faruk, Yavuz, İbrahim, Rıfat, Halil, Hüseyin, Şakir, Hakkı, Şükrü, Şeref, Eşref. The team went ahead in the first half. Midway through the second half of the game, Beşiktaş attacked continuously, despite being in front. And then, according to legend, a voice was heard from the stands towards which Beşiktaş was attacking. The voice said, "Come on, Black Eagles! Attack, Black Eagles!" The story goes that the owner of the voice from the stands was a fisherman called Mehmet Galin. Beşiktaş finished the game with a 6–0 win. The Beşiktaş players, who had very successfully defeated their opponents that season, were being described as "Black Eagles", and the football they played was being compared to "Attacking like Black Eagles". The comparison resonated with the team and the fans, and so it was adopted by the Beşiktaş community as their team's nickname.



The Squad


This is the squad that the team will use in season 2018-19.After selling Fabricio to Fulham FC,Loris Karius was loaned to replace him on the goalkeeping position.The team have Vida (injured) and Pepe in defence with Adriano and Gonul as Full Backs.The most loved and in the same time hated footballer of Besiktas is also in the team for this season Ricardo Quaresma.The hot headed winger will have to show a change in his attitude to keep his place in the team with the new head coach.

The first incoming transfer for Besiktas was made and the team signed with Benfica's striker Facundo Ferreyra.This was noted also as the first incoming transfer of the new manager of Besiktas.

Young Prospects.


Dorukhan Tokoz is one of the two hot prospects this season as he won already won a place in the first eleven already.The young midfielder will be a huge boost to the confidance of the team and also will please the needs of the fans watching young players getting chances and playing for Besitkas.


The second one is the young striker Guven Yalcin who will try to show that the team doesn't need a foreign striker to succeed in Turkish Super Lig.The young player have amazing potential but the only one that can make that happen is the new manager of the team.

Start Of The Season

Friendly Games


Besiktas played 5 friendly games winning 4 of them.The defeat came against Bordeaux with 1:2 in the first game for the season.After the defeat the team showed improvement and all the games till the end of the pre-season.

First Official Games - Europa League Qualifiers !


The team started the Europa League journey from the 2nd Qualifiyng Round against Tobol.The team showed great efficiency infront of the goal and scored 5 goals which decided the 2nd leg game in Kazakhstan.
In the next round the team faced Beitar Jerusalem from Israle destroying them with 6:1 at Vodafone Park and 4:1 away from home.The team qualified for the 4th Qualifying Round where they will face Atalanta in a very interesting game.


Next Part Coming Soon !

Only 1 defeat and 1 draw in 10 games for Trabzonspor.The team won the derby against Fenerbahce 3:2 and also managed to beat Kasimpasa with 2:0 away from home in the battle for the top.The team is playing good football with the new manager Jose Alvaro and we can see that Alvaro did some changes in the style of playing and the results are coming.The team is playing attacking and beautiful football with fast attacks from the wings with direct passes.The team also found his striker in the face of the young brazilian Cristo who can't stop scoring.


After 20 games in the league the team is at the 2nd place only 1 point behind from the top.While Fenerbahce are 3rd with 35 points.At the bottom are the teams of Gaziantepspor,Adanaspor and Alanyaspor but the biggest surprise is that Besiktas are at the 13th place.One of the biggest and ( my favourite turkish team) is struggling with the new manager yeah they managed to beat Trabzonspor but the team is not playing good and we can all see that.As for the current champion Kayserispor the team is at the 8th place with 28 points.

Turkish Cup


Trabzonspor won every game in the Turkish Cup and can't be stopped right now.The team won all 6 games in the group stage and also got the victory in the next round.In the quarter-finals the team will face Karabukspor from the Super League.


Trabzonspor at the top with 18 points in the next round.



First 11




@r96Skinner Good luck in Khimki.I don't know much about the russian football but it looks fun ! Keep it up !!
Hello,Turkey !




Trabzonspor is a professional Turkish football club located in the city of Trabzon, Turkey. Formed in 1967 through a merger of several local clubs, Trabzonspor have won six Süper Lig championship titles.
The Club won their first Championship title in 1975–76, and won three championship titles in a row during the following years 1978–79, 1979–80, 1980–81. They won their most recent championship title in the 1983-84 season.
The club colours are claret and blue, and they have maroon and blue kits. Trabzonspor plays at the Şenol Güneş Stadium which replaced the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium as their home ground in the middle of the 2016–17 season.


Pre-Season-Friendly Games !


Trabzonspor played 8 friendly games and lost only 1 of them against Liverpool with 1:0."Kara Denizliler" managed to beat also the former club of their new manager Jose Alvaro- Ludogorets Razgrad with 3:0.In the last friendly game against the greek side Olympiacos-Trabzon got a goalless draw.Jose Alvaro said that the team is ready for the openning of the season and that the team will fight for the title this season.He also said that he will try to change some of the things in the style of Trabzon and that the team will play more direct attacking football.( as Ludogorets ) As for the transfers the new manager said that the major transfers will be done in the Winter Transfer Windows as for now the team will just try to replace the players that are leaving the club.

When Jose Alvaro was asked what he likes the most in Trabzon he said - "Of course the music and the food here are amazing but let's don't forget the girls also ( the fans )"


Medical Park Arena-Trabzon



Four new players will play in Trabzonspor this season as 2 of them are expected to be key players for the team this season.The young goalkeeper Hayrullah and the central defender Gokhan Gul will start from the first minute in the new season.Strahil Popov will help to improve the right back position in the team with his experience ( the bulgarian played for Litex,Kasimpasa and now for Trabzonspor ).

The only major OUTgoing transfer was Ramil Sheidaev who left the team for Granada.

Turkish Super League


Trabzon started the season with 2 draws before the victory at home against Karabukspor with the minimal 1:0,after that the team won against Rize and Gaziantep before again to draw against Sivasspor and then the first defeat against Galatasaray in the derby.


Trabzon is at the 5th place after 10 games."Kara Denizliler" are with 4 victories ,4draws and 2 defeats.Jose Alvaro said that if the team wants to achieve something this season must win the games against the teams from the bottom half of the table.Trabzon lost a lot of points against those teams and played well against the top side teams which must be fixed if the team wants to win trophies in that or the next seasons.

Turkish Cup


Trabzon will play in a group with Eskisehirspor,Elazigspor and Kartalspor for the Turkish Cup.The first game is against Elazigspor.Jose Alvaro commented the draw and said that he is new to the turkish football and that the group is not easy as it looks.Trabzon will take each mach seriously and will play at 100% for the victory and most importantly for the fans.

@r96Skinner Thank you ! It was time to move on after 5 years in Bulgaria.The goal is to make Trabzon the best club in the next 5 years.

End Of Season 5 - Goodbye Ludogorets !

Bulgarian First League


Ludogorets won 4 of their last 6 games and retain the league title.The team from Razgrad was crowned once again as a champion of Bulgaria and will play again in the Champions League ( right in the group stages ).The fans were very pleased but also sad that this was the last year of Jose Alvaro in Ludogorets and that in the next season the team will have a new manager.Jose Alvaro was emotional and said that he is very happy for Ludogorets,for the fans and for the Bulgarian football.He also said that the new manager of Ludogorets will also continue the tradition of the team and that the fans must be happy for the future of the club.Jose Alvaro will be presented as the new manager of Trabzonospor in the next month.


Ludogorets will play in the Champions League group stages after winning the league once again.Neftochimic 1962 will play in the Champions League qualifying rounds for the first time in their history.CSKA-SOFIA and Septemvri-Sofia will get a chance to qualify for the Euorpa League group stages.At the bottom of the table Dunav and Sozopol are going back to the Second League after one year at the top league in Bulgaria.


Bulgarian Cup


Ludogorets lost the final against Slavia-Sofia in the last cup game for Jose Alvaro as manager of Ludogorets."Orlite" lost the game after 2:1 defeat and that was fully deserved after full 90minutes with mistakes.The players apologized to the fans and also promised that they will win it in the next season.

Season Review and Awards






@r96Skinner Yeah,surprisingly Septemvri is doing very fine after the promotion last year.The team was actually ready to fight for a place in the league but now is in the fight for the title somehow

@Dan The draw was Zenit and when you scroll down you will see how they destroyed us in the both games... as for the league yeah this season is the most interesting since i take over Ludo but hopefully i will leave the team as a champion

Winter Break-Friendly Games And Last Games For Ludogorets !


Ten exactly ten friendly games for Ludogorets in the winter break and the champions won 8 of them lost 1 and got draw against FC Viitorul.

Bulgarian First League


Ludogorets found their "lost"motivation and is back to the winning ways in the league.The team lost only to Montana in the away game at "Ogosta" with 1:0.The team destroyed once more CSKA-Sofia with 2:0 away and 4:1 at home.Ludogorets also won the games at the top for the title against Septemvri Sofia with 2:0 and 3:1 at home.The sad thing is that Jose Alvaro will leave the team in the end of the season but still no one knows his new club.


Ludogorets with 65 points at the top once again and at 99% the team from Razgrad will be crowned once again as the champion of Bulgaria in the end of the season.At the 2nd place is Neftochimic 1962 with 57 points and at the 3rd place is Septemvri Sofia ( the team that is doing that Leicester thing,atleast they are trying ).The "biggest" two teams in Bulgaria are at the 4th and 5th place ( can they win the league when Jose Alvaro is gone ? - will be the question for the next season ! )


Jose Alvaro signed with Trabzonspor.The manager of Ludogorets will join the turkish club in the end of the season and will try to make Trabzonspor champion again.The turkish club announced that Jose Alvaro signed 2 years contract .The chairman of Trabzon said that Jose Alvaro can make "Trabzon great again "and that the turkish team can play in the Champions League again.

Bulgarian Cup


Ludogorets will play at the final for the Bulgarian Cup again in the last season of Jose Alvaro.The team won the cup in the first season of the manager and now it can do it again in his last.The team will face Slavia Sofia at the final but to reach the final "Orlite" eliminated Svilengrad,Beroe,Cherno More and Septemvri Sofia.The team won every game in the cup this season and that was the case also when the team won the cup last time.

Europa League


Ludogorets was destroyed from the russian Zenit with 2:3 at Ludogorets Arena and with 1:3 away from home.The team is out in the First Knockout Round and for the first time the team lost the both legs.Jose Alvaro said that the Trabzon job is not the reason why Ludogorets lost the game and that he will do everything till the end of the season for Ludogorets.



Ludogorets in the Mid-Season !

Bulgarian First League


Ludogorets for the first time with Jose Alvaro lost 4 games.The team lost 4 games from 8 and showed that the team is not happy and everything is leading to Jose Alvaro.At the start of the season there were rumours that this is the last season of Jose Alvaro in Ludogorets.Yeah he won the league 4 times in a row but this is everything that Jose Alvaro can give to Ludogorets.It's time for a new manager if Ludogorets keep losing like this.


Ludogorets is at the 3rd position with 38 points.At the top is Septemvri Sofia ( 2nd year in the First League ).At the bottom is still Sozopol with only 5 points from 19 games.

UEFA Champions League


Ludogorets lost the important 2nd game against Real Madrid and that qualified R.Madrid for the next round.Ludogorets will play again in the Europa League after finishing 3rd with 7 points 2 victories 1 draw and 3 defeats.The team managed to qualify for the Europa League in the last 3 seasons and reached the Quarter-Final once against Leicester City.

Good luck in Suduva.Watched them against Ludogorets.A good team with some really good players.100% you can save them from that position.
Season 5 - Last Season With Ludogorets ?

Pre-Season and Friendly Games !


Ludogorets played 6 games and won 5 while against OL finished 0:0. " Orlite" destroyed AC Milan with 5:2,in the last game the champions managed to get the win against AS Roma too.The team conceded only 8 goals ( 5 against Viitroul ).That was the best pre-season since 2016 when Jose Alvaro signed with the team.

Trnasfers !


Rodriguez,Palomino,Maulin,Riemann and Cardenas were sold to big clubs for a good price and Ludogorets once more showed that the club can be very active in the transfer windows.As for the new players in the club Ludogorets decided to buy some bulgarian players as the people in Bulgaria started talking how the club is not Bulgarian anymore when therea re 1 bulgarian player in the club etc.Ludogorets signed with Georgi Kostadinov from AA Gent for 3.3M.Ludogorets also decided to strenght the defensive line and bought left and right backs for the UEFA Champions League.The best transfer for Ludogorets was Bozhidar Kraev from Levski for 5.5M.The young attacking midfielder will be the key to achieve the goals this season was the comment of the chairman Kiril Domuschiev.Another good transfer was Gabriel Obertan the expirienced winger who played for Bordeaux,Manchester United,Newcastle,Wigan now will play for Ludogorets Razgrad on free transfer.


Bulgarian First League


Ludogorets is playing their best season with Jose Alvaro.The team won 8 from 10 games and finished 2 times as draw against Vereya at the start ( after losing 2:0 at the half time ) and against Dunav Ruse 1:1 ( Keseru scored from free kick again when we were behind 1:0 ) The team also destroyed CSKA-Sofia with 4:0 at home.


Ludogorets is at the top right now with 26 points and 4 points ahead from the 2nd Neftochimic 1962 (22 points ).CSKA is at the 4th place while the other rival Levski-Sofia is at the 7th place with only 13 points from 10 games.At the bottom are Slavia and Sozopol ( the newly promoted team ) Sozopol still can't win a point and with 9 played games they are at 14th place with 0 points,and goal difference -16.

UEFA Champions League


Ludogorets is starting the tournament from the Third Round and not from the Second like the last seasons because Bulgarian League is rising in the rankings."Orlite" started the new european fairytale again against Romanian side this time CS U Craiova.The team won on aggregate 7:1 and qualified for the next round where they faced Hapoel Be`er-Sheva where the team played really good first leg away from home and won with 3:1 which decided the outcome and at Ludogorets Arena Ludogorets just finished the israel side after 1:0 victory.


Ludogorets is at the 2nd place from 3 played games.The team destroyed Basel in Switzerland with 4:1,then lost at home to PSG with 0:3 and got a draw at Santiago Bernabeu 1:1 (Bezjak scored in the 90+ for the final 1:1 ).With 4 points Ludogorets is at the 2nd place and the next 3 games will decide the outcome of this group.Ludogorets have a home games against Basel and Real Madrid and an away game against PSG.

End Of Season 4 !

Bulgarian First League


Ludogorets won the league with the worst game ever.The team lost 3 draw 2 and won only 1 game from the last 6 games but that win was enough for them to win the title once again.The defeat against Neftochimic with 2:5 was the moment when the fans started thinking that maybe it's time for Jose Alvaro to leave Ludogorets but in the end the team won the title again.



Ludogorets won the title once again yeah but the team didn't deserved it .Ludogorets is a top bulgarian club or even the top team in the Balkans yeah ok but they must show it.What they showed this season was a team that thinks only for the big games and even then the team is playing at 50%.Ludogorets have to change something in the next season....players,the manager ??

At the bottom Lokomotiv Plovdiv and Oborishte are the two teams that are relegated from the First League.Slavia Sofia won a chance to play in the european tournaments.


Ludogorets Arena ready for the Champions League games ?

Season Review and Awards !







@r96Skinner Yeah,it was funny how we lost to PAOK but won against Real Madrid at home with 10 players.

Ludogorets-Fairytale Is Over ?

Winter Break And Friendly Games !


Ludogorets played 10 friendly games and lost only 1 against Clube Atlético Mineiro with 1:2.The did the perfect mid season break winning 9 of 10 games against good opponents and the champions showed that they are ready for the Europa League games.

Transfers !


Ludogorets sold Cicinho,Moulin and Laporte.When Jose Alvaro was asked why the team sold the players he said that the team needed refreshing.The new players that signed with Ludogorets were only 3.The central midfielder Leo Cittadini,the central defender German Conti and the attacker Valeri Qazaishvili.


Ludogorets in the transfer window.

Bulgarian First League


Three defeats in 11 games was bad.Ludogorets again was at 50% in the league games and Jose Alvaro just can't make the team to give 100% in the league games.Ludogorets lost again vs - Levski,Botev and Beroe.That's not the only problem getting draws agaisnt the newly promoted teams like Septemvri Sofia and Oborishte is also a huge problem for the club.This must be fixed if Ludogorets wants to keep the league title.

The only positive result that showed that Ludogorets is a top team was the victory against Lokomotiv Plovdiv with 8:0 at Ludogorets Arena.



Ludogorets is still at the top with 64 points while the 2nd CSKA is with 57 points.The title will be decided in the last 6 games from the season.

UEFA Europa League


The team said goodbye too early.Ludogorets eliminated Red Bull Leipzig but in the next round was destroyed by OGC Nice with 3:0 on aggregate.That showed once more that when the team is not concentrated they lose.Everything was fine in the first 45 against Nice in France but in the second half Ludogorets conceded two stupid goals that decided the whole game and also the 2nd leg.
