And finally we reached the season end with main objective, the promotion, under the belt and with the feeling of a well done season, prepared and executed as what I thought. Win the higher number of games until gather the points enough to get the promotion and after that sell all players until they worth good money and specially because most of them were now really oldies with more than 30 years old…
So, reach promotion on 12nd round was perfect and that gave me two weeks to do my players selling within the best period of the season to trade, before the off season when the prices drop to much. I already sold them all with the exception of the keeper for a total amount of 18 millions…more or less the same they cost me the season before, so a breakeven and of course the losing of loyalty…but I`ve been doing this process in the last 3 seasons with good results (3 promotions from the VI th division until III rd), so, let`s try it once again and this time will try to invest in younger players, probably not so talented and with lower skills but good enough to training and grew up some levels until being sold and with some profit, I hope.
I already checked my new series and it will be III.8. Much difficult than the IVth division, of course, and with all teams very competitive and full of good players…It will be difficult to decide for what position shall I fight: promotion, top four,avoid relegation or condemned right now…I will check it on the next week and decide the best approach.
And on 3rd of May I will finally have access to my second team. It will be settled in Paraguay, a country with 5 divisions, not so many active teams (about 600) and a good chance to do better than I did until now in Portugal in 6 years of Hattrick…being for the first time in IIIrd division isn`t a great achievement, I know that…and my goal in Paraguay will be definetly to reach top League and be one of the best Teams on that country, avoiding same mistakes did in the past with my original team.
The name choosed for my adventure in Paraguay will be – Portuguay Thunders (a mix of Portugal and Paraguay on the name :-).
Being a country where the language is the Spanish it will be really nice to me because I can manage well talking and write…and a good opportunity to improve my skills on the foruns and sharing info with locals.
This new project will start after tomorrow and I will decide my best strategy to get a strong team in the shorter time I can…this for sure means I will be a trader in the beginning, hopefully one with many buys and sells to get money and better players as the time goes by. A nice training plan (probably short passes) and a good coach will be mandatory. Let`s see what we can do…One thing I can say to You: the will and excitment as a beginner is granted…Let the adventure begin!!!
