Yellow Blue Army - Rebuilding a sleeping giant - The introduction

The glory days are over for the boys from the Western Outskirts. 10 years after the last title, something new has to happen. The club needs to rely on the youth and they do not have the same position on the transfer market as the used to have. Is it possible to get the club out of this bad spell?

The Danish league (Superliga) might not be the most well known. Perhaps, I would not be surprised if you have never heard about it before. Nonetheless, it is filled with great talent. Denmark's U-21 managed to finish third at the UEFA U-21 EURO's and with many players from the side playing in the national league it confirmed that the Superliga is indeed full of talents.

This season is the last with the current system. From next season, there will be 14 teams in the league and it will be split in half after 24 games. In this season though, the normal rules will still apply. 12 teams compete against each other 3 times a season, which makes it 33 game days in total.

The defending champions are FC Midtjylland, who dominated the league and won it quite easy. Especially Pione Sisto and Erik Sviatchenko were important to secure a league victory.

I will start this save with Brøndby, so lets start with going trough Brøndby's rivals in the hunt for the Danish title.
Brøndby's main rival in this save will be their arch rivals, FC København, who are the big spenders in Danish football but has only won the league once since 2011. Also Aab and OB will compete in the top, as they have some very bright talents. Midtjylland, of course, will also be a competitor but they are not as strong as they were last season.

But lets get going with the game. First of all I have set my self some objectives to makes this story a little bit interesting:

  • Qualify for a European group stage at least once in the first three seasons
  • Win a national trophy at least once in the first two seasons
  • Go trough to the knockout stages in a European tournament at least once in the first five seasons
  • 50 percent of the first team squad has to be home grown, starting from the fifth season

With the objectives done, lets introduce the manager, who (hopefully) can rebuild a former powerhouse in Danish football:

Yep, that is me.

Before I start with the introduction, I highly recommend that you read my guide about Brøndby. I will of course show the squad but I will not analyse it so much, because the guide already gives a very good picture of how it looks. You can find it here.

Now that we have seen a little bit about the manager, why not take a look at Brøndby?

As you see, this is not a small club. The last time they won a trophy was back in 2008, where they won the cup final against Esbjerg. Since then, succes has been very limited for the club and they were close to being relegated back in 2013 but a dramatic match against their fellow relegation candidates, Horsens, saved them at last.

The squad is listed as above. Quite balanced but it lacks some central defenders and some width on the wings. It is a problem though, that both Kahlenberg and Agger have long term injuries as they are the two best players.

We have almost 700k in transfer budget and a little bit under 10k in wages. I will try to sell some of the dead wood and replace it with something better. More about that in the next post.

Once again, I recommend if that you want to follow this, you might want to read my guide about this club. Click here to see it.

I will try to make about 1 or 2 post a week, that should recover about 2-3 months in the game. This blog will be in a reflective style, so I have already played some games and then I will sum up the results in the later post.

That is all I have from now. See you next time when I will play my first game in charge of this club and maybe do some transfers.
