@localheroBolivian kids aren't worth that much sadly.

Promotion Stage 2019

And our great form continues! Didn't see it being this easy but our guys really did well. Some really good wins really.

Finishing top is great because it means that we will go up against whoever finished second in the other group!

They have been playing very well this season but have lost twice in their group. If we manage to grab a win in the first game, away from home, I can see us winning the tie!

I thought we were out after losing the first game, and was certain about it when we went down to 10 men in the 21st minute. I was so happy when Moreno scored and that we managed to hold on to the lead!

I am so glad that we finished first in our group! That is what took us through. I thought it was away goals at first but it doesn't really matter, as long as we are in the final!

Final Stage 2019 - Final

63f2a39aa89ed3e7f9ddca4f80ddd814.png
We had nothing to show over the two legs. All of our chances were terribly taken and we paid for that.

Moreno was such a good player for this level. Too bad the others weren't as good as him!

The club is losing money in a rapid pace. This means that we really won't be able to get anywhere any time soon.

b3cf9ae6f790aaf256efb0a1a3c0bbe3.png
A few things brought me to this decision. First, the finances. We couldn't put up a fight without any money at all. We were losing a lot of cash every day and I could do nothing against it. If I had a couple of stars to sell it would have been helful but our highest rated player was worth £8.75k. Second reason is the long break they have in Bolivia. Don't want to waste 5 months of my managerial career if I can go to another team.

The Search Begins.

The club is currently all the way down in 12th place. Only 2 points above a relegation spot, so it would be our task to get clear from the drop! Nothing else but avoiding the drop.

About the City:

A city on the shore of Peru, what else could we ask for? Not even a million people in the city but I am sure most of them will know who I am before too long. Well, if they won't know our 2317 km drive wouldn't be worth it.

About the Club:
a8e4e687ceb8a9c69980039abcfa2ed8.png
One Second Division title not too long ago in 2016. The club had been struggling a bit since then but I am hoping to get us back up! All I need is someone like Claudio Pizzaro who is one of the players to come through the academy.
658e3e73b7ddf2e3a0c7d3aa78aaf5a0.png
The club is looking good and there are good youth players here as well. Really looking forward to my time here! Just need to bring in a RB and a LB is we don't have more than one player in each position. Bad thing is that I only just came in on the last day of the window so I have very little time to get this sorted!

To the beach!

Youth Intake!

This is what I like! So much potential in this squad and I am hoping they are here to stay.

These are the three I am most looking forward to out of an amazing intake! Hopefully many of them will stay with me for this journey!

These are the players we brough in on the final day of the transfer window. I know it is a lot of players but they are all in positions that we really lacked depth in and it is always good when you pay nothing for them!

b348f0a7817ca47d32471dfd391af53a.png
Finances here aren't great really. The club have put in £150k so it seems like they are really trying to help. Hopefully we can use the amazing youth products that come through here to get the club back in the black. Just another aim that I set myself.

1144e038de0f5ee273471a6a6a647b0d.png
Well, on to the games! We had a brilliant start with three wins in five! Our only loss came to the team sitting in first place so I didn't really expect much of that game.
 It was a bit of a shame though because we were leading up until the 83rd minute when they scored 2 goals in a minute.

cf0b0e79166714e54a8a61006bf17b42.png
Despite a very good month, we only went up two spots into 10th. Not bad I guess but it could have been a little better really. We are now 9 points off the drop and I am really hoping to secure our safety in the coming month!

A month to forget really! Three losses in a row really had me worrying but thankfully we managed to finish with a decent win (despite only scoring a penalty in that game). The match against Leon de Huanuco was really frustrating with us, again, making a 1-0 lead into a 2-1 loss!

a8ec693c01eab740f62357e73de2dac5.png
Well, we dropped down one place and we are 8 clear of the drop. Only 9 points to be won so I think it is fair to say we are safe this season!

Despite getting a win in the first game, we didn't manage to get the other games right and we ended the season in a bad feeling.

2cb0b21bd190c428268b47c635ff93f7.png
Hoped to finish mid-table after a promising start to life in Peru! Hopefully we can better this next season.

You can easily see how underwhelming this season has been by our top scorer.

d63bdda47ac4d61b038e832dc36598d4.png
Alright. Changes will have to be made for the coming season! We are only allowed 4 foreigners in the team so I will need to see who I let go of in order to strengthen in the key areas. Currently our 4 are: Betancur, Fernandez, Arrieta and Amut. The only player I am really looking forward to keeping here is Betancur as he was great at RM for us.

This club is famous for its youth products and I am going to do my best to keep it like that. I will look to balance the team between youth players, foreigners and maybe 5 players that have experience.

Preseason 2020

ee745a027f1b549bbaa2beece0cbf7c8.png
It has been a long break so I had to keep the players fresh with a lot of friendlies! We did alright and the last few games were just to get the players happy by winning!

e60aaa4ef3481da3bb6838ec7bee1f5f.png
A lot of transfers have been made with many leaving the club! We have brought in £105k in transfer money which is great. It really helped us keep the debt from growing and hopefully we will be able to pay it off soon!

afeaee6d8dde8e188144506f595105cf.png
Predicted to finish fifth. I will be very happy if we stick to the prediction.

Not a bad start I guess. Just a shame that we have drawn half our games and conceded so many! Hopefully we can sort out our problems at the back in the next window!

24ca7b3788e49b6e572b9759b5d56eb3.png
Mid table, but not quite what I was hoping for. Hopefully we can manage to string together a few wins to get us top half!

As you can see, we had a terrible run of form these two months. Everything that I tried changing just made it worse! Red cards and injuries didn't help either...

9e4fd727239aedebc52a24a59455f80a.png
We are currently in 11th as you can see, not at all where I thought we would be! We have the coming month to strengthen our defence and especially I will look to bring a strong keeper!

bf487c6dbac4590f9a1dfe8178f2a9be.png
The board accepted these offers for two very improtant players! The Chuchon deal was probably the better of the two seeing as we have the 50% of profit clause. Sanchez deal had no closes so not the best. I don't understand why our finances are so bad! The only way to cut the losses is to sell our players and due to the amount of youth, many are only on £190-£230 p/w

A lot of players came in on loan, a few not even my choice as they were sent over here by our Parent Club. Hopefully I made the squad a bit better, only time will tell!

9c9155ba8c1f4f04e6b0f9f77617bd92.png
We started the month off with the same bad form that we finished the other. Thankfully we managed to go three games unbeaten! That is only the second time we did so this season and to do it after 4 straight wins is surely promising.

98ee63efd95e7161abee5bbe9c2ab9c1.png
I don't think we will get relegated. We just need to have a good finish to this terrible season for me to be happy now. The finances are still terrible but hopefully we can manage to put a smile on the fans' faces!

These three are my top three, mostly because of their positions. Hopefully I am not wrong and they can both play for us and help us make money.

@localhero I really did believe we would be up there! Just need to find the right tactic to make us both a force going forward and a wall at the back.

Decent I guess. Our defence seems to have been getting a bit better, with us only conceding 1 goal in our 4 games. Despite that, we have also only scored 1 goal in the 4 games. We really need to get our attackers firing but for now, I much rather see a draw than us getting smashed.

2039638d5d4ad98a51542c1244260520.png
8 points off the drop and I am still confident that we will stay up this season. Hopefully I will still be in this job despite not finishing in mid-table, because I can't see us getting there this season!

A very good month when taking into account our form this season!! We were outplayed in the final game of the month but hopefully we can forget that game and get back to our good form. Team is definitely playing better and a lot of that is down to our 17 year old star Paul Prado!

d6565fa3eec8a095e6101c2f49eb97d8.png
Up to 11th now which is better, and also we are 14 points clear with 3 games to go. So, you know what that means! We are safe! Can't get relegated. Maybe we can even push for a 10th place finish if we perfect the last few games but I would be glad to just stay in 11th for now.

Two huge wins against first and second! It seems like right now the team had clicked. Will need to keep the important players here next season but that surely will be a tough job! Prado continued his fine form with 3 goals and 2 assists in the final two games.

66aa06020471fdd12b0396eb4e0bb827.png
9th place, 40 points. We did manage to get a mid table finish after all. We finished three places higher this season and got 5 more points! Not bad. Just hope that we can keep our end of the season form up next season as well!

a7f207a58b3270c79710ad08c41d38cf.png
I agree with the awards that have been handed. Betancur and Li have been very good for us for most of the games. Only players I don't think should be in the team of the season are Solis (left us in the transfer window because we got a better replacement) and Fajardo (was terrible the whole time and was quickly dropped to the bench). Really hope that this was the first and last season of Paul Prado with us!

5557c453f475242e74c2d52939e351b2.png
I will do my best to keep Casas, Gil, Gutierrez and Tavara. Betancur is leaving as we can't offer foreign players over the age of 25 a contract unless they played in the top division the season prior. The same goes for Arrieta. Not too fussed as I am sure we will find two foreigners to bring in instead!

Preseason 2021

dac2a0f119b10395e92cca36c9f84566.png
Again, a lot of friendlies to get match fitness up. Nothing special.

4d7bab82effe7dd7202026eb5c52221e.png
A lot of transfers this season. We have managed to bring in £150k from selling three important players but we have also added clauses that will see us profit from any future sale! We brought in a lot of loan players as well just to have the depth in the squad. I wouldn't mind sending those who don't play back to their parent club, but with us not paying wages, it was the best thing to do.

9e3d587d23b779da1b035ee0491b7fe3.png
We are predicted to finish 4th this season. It didn't work well for us last year, as we finished 4 places off the prediction. Hopefully this year Paul Prado can lead us to at least 4th!

ec9bb15edba5f79243f410b4753d1097.png
Very early on the board have given me a new contract. A nice £100 upgrade.

42aa9e4b0bbbf18189911d7e147a761d.png
So, is this the team mto lead us to glory? I am liking the look of it. Perhaps not the amount of loaned players but I am sure the ones who are here with us will do great things. Jhoao Casas stayed with us but his contract with his club is up soon. I really hope that he will decide to sign with us because he is a great CB for both this level and for the first division.

A similar start to last season. Again, 9 points in six games. Hopefully we can continue getting points and manage to avoid going on a bad run! Hopefully we can start scoring more goals. Only 7 goals in six games, that isn't enough to win a lot of games.

a7d4f56632c9803db75bab67772290f2.png
The table is obviously still very tight. Hopefully a good run next month will see us climb the table a little but who knows?

ddd077cf258b2ea54840241cb2c49afc.png
As you can see, Casas will play his final game for us during this month. He is leaving us to go back to his club before his contract expires. Maybe some day we will reunite?

Unbeaten but we really do need to start scoring! We are doing great defensively but we are dropping too many points due to our shit scoring records!

9d3180cd40c446c9954422438ea6abd8.png
I am happy that we are still 5th. If we can sort out our attack I think we can really be pushing for second place. Saying that, we could just as easily go down to 13th.

4cc93de091b42b1ed4763a37b2af5574.png
Well, we have lost one of our best players. He didn't start this season quite as well as he finished last season but he is still very important! Hopefully the others can step up and take his place.
