World Championship 1074 Division 1: Club América vs FC Porto Preview


1 comfortable win and 1 narrow loss sees Club América in 8th place of the Division 1 table. Every point is valuable in the 38 game race to the finish, but heavy emphasis will be put on the first 10 games of the season.

Bad news for Johan Cruijff would be that Club América's star striker Fernando Cavenaghi is still nursing an injury from helping the club clinch promotion in the play off finals. Good news is, there are no other selection worries for the remainder of the squad.

"They say you aren't far off from where you are after 10 games. Since this is our maiden campaign, we have to be realistic on where we want to finish by the end of the season. But one thing is certain, we didn't come to Division 1 just to play and lose. Our 3-0 scoreline against Fenerbahçe and a narrow 2-3 loss to a 95 rated Real Madrid starting XI is already proof that our team is capable of coping with top flight football."

FC Porto is one of the 6 Division 1 teams entering turn 3 on a winning streak. One more win and a gap would soon be forming between them and the rest of the division.

"There are no weak sides in top flight football, and we will certainly not take FC Porto lightly. They are on the right track at the moment, but we are eager to stop them right there in front of our home crowd. FC Porto love to play down both flanks the Portugese way, and that is certainly one issue that we will be trying to address this match."

As for targets for the season?

"As long as we don't get relegated and end up mid-table, I will be very happy."

Re: WC 1074 Club América

Johan, I love how you've done the last two reports, superb stuff B)

I'm on my third game of the season, haven't got the time to do a full report, but not had too bad a start and i've had a few risers which has helped, because even with all my money (£148M) I can't buy anyone rated over 89. Doesn't bother me too much though, because as long as I stay in the division this season I think quite a few players will rise and it's more fun that way :)

First team



Youth team

Re: WC 1074 Club América

Since my last post, I have been quietly researching on literally every single player on the team (currently standing 150 excluding two loaned out players). Here is my "masterpiece" and excuse for my long absence. Reason behind going through all of them? Wanted to really leave only the best of the best behind in my squad, earn some cash and cut down wage bill.

I also had my doubts on putting too much trust on only Seftinho's list, where I guess the majority of talents came from before and during my hands. No disrespect to him, but sometimes it's better to compare two sources or actually have up to date information about players than to buy based on a list of players. His thread hasn't been updated for a while as well, and it's much too big for him to update it to perfection. Also wanted to get rid of players I could not be able to get clear ideas of, as it's better to stick with players you "know" than players tipped as the next top thing without any familiar information to back it.

Lots of thanks to Abdel Zizi, Insider, IOA, Radebe20, DerbyPower and scouts across the forum. Their threads, posts and contributions across the forum made it a possibility for me to compile this list. Despite their help being indirect, they deserve our thanks regardless anyways (which is everyone really). IOA did help me make my mind up on a player though through direct PMing. Thanks a bunch man.

Re: WC 1074 Club América

World Championship 1074 Division 1: Internazionale vs Club América Preview


Mid-table was the season's goal, and mid-table it was. Since Johna Cruijff's departure from the spotlight, Club América have found themselves sitting on 11th place after 18 games.

Club América have tragically crashed out on both cup competitions on first encounters with opponents. A 3-2 defeat to Marseille on 1st round in the World Champ Cup, and defeat in the hands of Rangers with a scoreline of 2-0 on the 2nd round meant that any slim chance of winning silverware vanished early in the season.

"Good news and bad news depending on who's talking. We have always emphasised squad depth, with first team players capable of slotting into the starting line up always hovering around 24-25 players. But realistically speaking, it is much more appropriate to focus on surviving Division 1 more than anything. It would be too much of a strain on the club's prospects if we chased glory on three fronts."

And now with the focus shifted to league, two suspensions and an injury would certainly bother Johan Cruijff. "That's why we've had such big changes undergone with the senior and youth squad. After discussions with the board, it was decided that the senior squad needed strength as well. And since our depth has always been our pride, their quality would certainly help ease the pressure of the players missing. (Jérémy Toulalan 3 week injury, Heiko Westermann 2 match suspension and Fernando Llorente 1 match suspension)"

Thoughts and opinions of their opponents? "They are currently 7th place in the league, only 1 point above us. Do we have a chance? For sure. It's a classic encounter between squad depth against squad quality. The opponent has world class players, but the majority are suffering from non match fitness, and I don't see them recovering in time for tonight's encounter. When I see a chance, I go for it, and here's our chance to solidify our positions in Division 1."

But the club is playing away from home. "Yes, that is a factor we always have to consider. But I don't recall outrunning your opponents all over the pitch being anything different home or away. They are tired, and being in front of their crowd doesn't really change anything. This division's competition has been extremely intense, with 3 points only separating 3rd place and us (11th place), which shows that every side has been pretty equal to each other."

About the new player signing, Marcus Berg, isn't he a little bit surplus to the requirements of Club América? "Marcus Berg is a very talented centre forward who is fast, good with both feet and strong in the air. His talent and potential is without doubt. But I do have to admit that the club has been a little bit on the blunder side. Our principle has always been to sign 1st team players (21+ years old, 87+ rating) only if we think they will be able to realistically get game time within the season. We currently play with 1 striker only, and despite us transfer listing Patrick Helmes, we have 3 strikers left (Guiseppe Rossi, Fernando Cavenaghi and Fernando Llorente), excluding Berg. That being said, we bought Marcus Berg assuming Chelsea's offer to buy Cavenaghi for 21 million pounds would go through, but the Chelsea chairman blocked the offer last minute, so we're stuck with an abundance amount of strikers. I'm currently discussing with the board of plausible solutions. Most managers tear their hair out for the lack of players in certain positions, so in this aspect we are rather lucky."

Re: WC 1074 Club América

For those who actually do follow this thread, I have to apologise once again for my inconsistency, as I don't think I'd be able to update this thread much more on a regular basis.

Club America is currently 2nd place, 1 point behind 1st place and 4 points above 3rd place after riding (still rididng) a 7 game winning streak. Thrashing teams that are non match fit, so the results are overly exceeding expectations at the moment. Trying not to let the wins get onto my head.

For people who are interested I could update about the team through private message instead, as this part of the forum belongs to talented consistent hardworking match reporters.
