EN TABLE OF CONTENTS
US TABLE OF CONTENTS
Hello and welcome to my article for the next edition of Sports Journal. Today, I would like to discuss the events of the past week, specifically the break between season 10 and season 11. As we all know, this is no ordinary break because of the big change that has taken place - the merger of the EU and US servers. This is a change that has been highly anticipated and talked about for a long time, and it's finally here.
After the brief introduction, let's dive into the main topic of today's article - what activities you can engage in during your free time at FootballTeam. Keep reading to find out more!
Transfers are an inevitable part of the break between seasons. While it's great to see teams stick together and play with the same squad for many seasons, sometimes players feel the need to try out for another team. There could be various reasons for a transfer, such as not fitting into the team's draft for the upcoming season. If you're interested in exploring transfer options, I suggest visiting the chat and TRANSFERS tab where you can announce your candidature or look for players for your club.
Upgrading your items
Once you have confirmed the club you will be joining for the upcoming season and have already claimed the rewards for the previous season, it would be wise to consider upgrading your items. If you possess the required resources such as gold balls, ball of succes, and euros, you can start the upgrading process without any further delay. All you need to do is select your player and head to the locker room to begin the ENCHANT process. To enhance your item, you don't have to use gold balls and ball of success for every try, but using them definitely makes the process easier.
If you already have the resources needed to upgrade your items, it's worth keeping an eye on the AUCTIONS. You can often find items such as event packs, crystals, energy, euros, and more at a lower price than the current market. And if you have credits to spare, you might be able to snag some great deals.
Tidying up is not just limited to your home, sometimes you may need to do it in your LOCKER ROOM too. Don't get too attached to your old gaiters and worn-out shoes, as they may be of use to someone else. Although it's meant to be a humorous take, it's also important to take tidying up seriously. The offseason is the perfect time to give your locker room a thorough clean. Not all FootballTeam players do this regularly, but with a break in league matches, now is the ideal time to get organized. You can even exchange any unwanted items of high value for euro or golden balls and sell them on the market for other players to purchase.
Friendly matches offer a nice break from regular league and cup matches. They allow us to experiment with new formations and tactics for our team. One thing to keep in mind is that, for every 33% inclusion of your players' style of play for a given trained skill, you receive a cards pack. Since friendly matches are the only matches that occur during the break between seasons, they are the only opportunity to collect such a pack.
Aside from the activities you mentioned, there are plenty of other things we can do in the FootballTeam to make the most of our free time. For example, we could swap item collections, check out the daily cafeteria, exchange booster collections, and even purchase them at a discounted rate on the market.
Are you know any other activities you can think of that would be enjoyable to do during your free time at FootballTeam that were not mentioned in today's article? See you next week my friend, bye!

The 10th anniversary season has come to an end. And we can say that one of the important stages of the game ended with it. A new season is ahead, which should bring more competition and impressions. In the meantime, it is necessary to sum up the results of the past season, forming teams of the best players. The selection of players is based on statistical data. Therefore, the best players of the Super League and the First League will definitely get into the team of their league. The line-ups of the Super League and Ligue 1 teams are based on player statistics - goals, assists, interventions and clean sheets. All statistics are given for 28 rounds played for the Super League and for 30 rounds for the First League. The players of the respective leagues are presented in a 4-4-2 formation. At the time of publication of this article in the magazine, it is possible that some players will change clubs. So, let's get started.
As we can see, the Super League team again has the most players from the Stiff Boys club (6 players).
Also, dear readers, I offer you a table where you can compare the best players of the Super League in terms of performance in seasons 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
The best goalkeeper is The Chosen One (Polish DF). Number of conceded goals/minutes played as the goalkeeper 0,0000. Quite a unique achievement, because the goalkeeper did not concede a single goal in the 10th season.
The League 1 team has the most players from club Rayo eSports. Two representatives.
These are the results of the 10th season.
I congratulate all the players at the end of the season. Good luck in the new 11th season.
Hello all virtual footballers. In today's edition, I had the pleasure of interviewing a member of the Stiff Boysteam. We had the opportunity to get to know each other very well and I don't know why I decided to interview him only now. I would like to introduce you to the player Acziwment.
Tell us something about yourself. What's your name, what do you do, any hobbies?
My name is Daniel and I'm an economics graduate. In my free time I like to play football and watch Netflix series.
Why do you have such a nickname and what made you start your adventure with FT?
My nickname comes from one of Minecraft's Lets Plays, which at that time was watched by almost every young person, including me, when the game was just beginning to gain popularity on YouTube. There is no special story behind him other than that he has been with me for almost half of my life. As for the beginning of my adventure with FT, it also dates back to 2009/2010. I have always liked interesting browser games and I remember that FootballTeam attracted me for longer as one of the first games of this type. And with the current, changed version of the game, I am from the beginning, i.e. from the Polish server created in 2018.
What are your ambitions as a club? Stay in SuperLeague, win some Cups?
As a top team on server we're aiming for the highest goals which is of course winning SuperLeague and Champions League.
You've been playing Stiff Boys for a long time. How do you rate this club?
At the beginning there were times when I felt bored, that's why after one season I changed the team. After another season mainly because of switching communication from discord server to messenger chat team management convinced me to come back. Now the atmosphere is really good, we are winning trophies so all in all I'm enjoying my time here.
What would you change/add/remove in FT?
If I were to choose one thing to change I would lean towards changing the system of awarding goalkeepers individual awards. Now it's counted goals conceded/minutes played in my opinion the fair option would be shots saved/goals conceded.
Why did you choose the goalkeeper position?
I chose to be a goalkeeper because since I was a kid I always played there. I always enjoyed it, for a brief time I even played in a football club.
How do you like the newly introduced Player Card Packs?
I feel that Player Card Packs are interesting. It's nice that most valuable players are being rewarded, I'm pretty sure it will keep some players in the game for longer. Although I think it would be better if the cards were server exclusive. EU players might not care as much about PL clubs and players and vice versa.
If you were to leave Stiff Boysfor some reason, what team would you target?
I don't plan on leaving stiff but if I had no other choice i would probably try to contact THUNDER. They seem to be a strong and stable team. They have been around for quite a long time. I also know some of the players from PL server so it would be easier for me to adapt.
What do you think about the server connection?
It definitely has some pros and cons to it. Bigger player pool is for sure a good thing. It is healthy for the market and for the rivalry on the server. The disadvantage of the merger is that it was a lot easier to progress on the US servers and it is a bit unfair for the EU players. For example winning a weekly training competition with fewer energy needed as there weren't many players that could put a lot of money into the game.
Thank you very much for reading the interview to the end. If you would like to ask someone a few questions on various topics, feel free to contact me.
Hello, dear readers. It's time for the Merge Servers EU and US, but before that happens, let's summarize the first 10 seasons and see which teams have gathered the most trophies. As you probably noticed, I love scoring everything, so let's turn it into a little competition. We have several categories, and since teams playing in SL cannot participate in the cups, I came up with a way to tally the scores:
1st - 2 points
2nd - 1 point
3rd - 0.5 points
Champions and European Tournament Winners: 1 point each
Domestic Cup Winners: 1 point
League 1 Winners: 1 point
By scoring in this manner, every team would have a relatively equal chance to earn points for trophies because an SL team can earn 2+1 points, while teams outside SL can earn 1+1+1 points.
Let's see how the First Season looked like, as we all remember; it was just the beginning of the bigger fun on our server. Additional matches were added from the second season onwards. So, let's see how it went in the second season:
1st - Q8000x (Stiff Boys) - 2 points
2nd - LaFamilia - 1 point
3rd - TheBestThalibTeam - 0.5 points
Champions Tournament: Q8000x (Stiff Boys) - 1 point
European Tournament: Romper FC - 1 point
Domestic Cup Winners:
England - Hakuna Matata - 1 point
Spain - Forest Green Rovers (KS TRZYNACHA) - 1 point
Germany - BAVOVNA - 1 point
Italy - Q8000x (Stiff Boys) - 1 point
League 1 Winners:
England - Polish DF - 1 point
Spain - OLD SCHOOL - 1 point
Germany - BAVOVNA - 1 point
Italy - Obstawiamy - 1 point
As you can see, this round promoted Superleague teams, as it was the only season where these teams could still play in the Domestic Cup. This allowed Stiff Boys to achieve a treble. Also, remember that if a team advanced from League 1 to Superleague in later seasons, it could also play in the Domestic Cup for that one season. Let's see how the third season looked on our server:
1st - Q8000x (Stiff Boys) - 2 points
2nd - LaFamilia - 1 point
3rd - Hakuna Matata - 0.5 points
Champions Tournament: LaFamilia - 1 point
European Tournament: We Call It Soccer - 1 point
Domestic Cup Winners:
England - Hakuna Matata - 1 point
Spain - Nielubiani Dręczyciele - 1 point
Germany - BAVOVNA - 1 point
Italy - Obstawiamy - 1 point
League 1 Winners:
England - Go Complain - 1 point
Spain - НУ ПОГОДИ - 1 point
Germany - BAVOVNA - 1 point
Italy - Obstawiamy - 1 point
In the third season, BAVOVNA and Obstawiamy teams had a fruitful season, achieving a double crown. Let's check the rankings of our teams after three seasons:
Stiff Boys - 7 points
LaFamilia - 4 points
BAVOVNA - 4 points
Obstawiamy - 3 points - The club no longer exists.
Hakuna Matata - 2.5 points
TheBestThalibTeam - 1.5 points
KP DREWNIACY - 1 point - The club no longer exists.
Romper FC - 1 point
KS TRZYNACHA - 1 point
Polish DF - 1 point
OLD SCHOOL - 1 point
We Call It Soccer - 1 point
Nielubiani Dręczyciele - 1 point
Go Complain - 1 point
НУ ПОГОДИ - 1 point
Fifteen teams have inscribed their names in the history of our server, each winning at least one trophy. Naturally, we will slightly condense our list of top clubs to the top 10 because after ten seasons, the list could become a bit lengthy. Unfortunately, due to the character limit that I cannot exceed, as issuing additional numbers would be too lengthy, I have to conclude our summary at this point and return to it in the upcoming issues. Additionally, I also have an idea to create a similar summary regarding players, but it's much harder to find data for this summary. So, dear readers, if I could ask for your help, it would be great. I'm specifically looking for the league's top scorer, best defender, goalkeeper, or midfielder. While it's relatively easy to find the best scorer, goalkeeper, or midfielder of the Champions Tournament by browsing the profiles of top players, finding the same statistics from the beginning of the server in the Leagues is much more challenging. So, if you're reading this issue and you know that you or your friend won an award in a particular season, please write to me indicating the season and the trophy. I will try to gather all this information into one comprehensive article for future reference ;) That's all from me today. Thank you all very much, and I invite you back next week for a summary of the next three seasons. I wish everyone many successes, and see you on the field!

Thank you for your attention, I will come back next week with an analysis of collections containing ball of success.
Saturday, October 15, 2023 - The world of FTG, a platform that brings together football enthusiasts, has recently been shaken by a regrettable incident that has sparked deep reflection in the community. The FTG community has witnessed an unprecedented clash between two of its most prominent players, Agustin "Pepe" Marchesin and Dario Rodriguez Peña. The controversy revolves around a series of exchanged messages that have shaken the community and ignited a debate about ethics in the game. These messages contained extremely insensitive and offensive wishes related to the recipient's health.
The conversation in question originated when Dario, known for his impressive OVR and gaming skills, received a message from Marchesin, nicknamed "Pepe." The message, which began seemingly harmless, quickly took an unpleasant turn. In a surprising twist, Marchesin expressed his frustration over a position change in Dario's team, which was allegedly intended to favor Latam United in the Super League. Marchesin accused Dario of betraying his team and favoring a rival.
The conversation became even more intense when Dario responded with criticisms of other teams and players, claiming that everyone was willing to favor themselves. Tensions escalated rapidly, and Marchesin lost his composure, expressing his displeasure in an extremely offensive manner.
In a particularly shocking moment in the conversation, Marchesin made an extremely hurtful comment towards Dario, wishing him to suffer from a severe illness. This statement immediately sparked a debate in the FTG community and raised questions about the ethics of players and the game's administration.
Beyond the in-game consequences, this episode highlights the need to balance the intensity of competition with respect for others. I call on the FTG administration to condemn this behavior.
At a time when the community is deeply engaged in a debate about ethics in the game, we must remember that FTG is a platform for fun and excitement. While competition is essential, empathy and respect are fundamental values that must be upheld at all times.
Although the majority of the FTG community condemns the offensive language and hurtful wishes expressed in these messages, some players have raised questions about the nature of rivalry in the game. They argue that in a highly competitive environment like FTG, the adrenaline and fervor of competition can sometimes lead to extreme emotional expressions.
This controversy has raised important questions about the boundaries of rivalry in FTG and the responsibility of players. The game's administration is taking steps to address the incident and assess appropriate sanctions.
We hope that this controversy serves as a reminder of the need to balance the intensity of competition with respect for others. FTG is a platform for fun and excitement, and we must work together to preserve that spirit. The community comes together to express support for the affected player and to reiterate its commitment to a safe and respectful gaming environment. In these times, let's always remember that, beyond rivalry, we are interconnected human beings in this virtual world. There won't be a recommended song this week due to the sensitive nature of the topic, and we must treat it with the utmost respect. Until the next edition, folks.
Football, who doesn't know it? Don't tell me you don't. In this great sport, we always wonder how far a team can go to win it all. Well, we've found a real-life example that will make you laugh, cry, and question if what I'm telling you is true. But both the real-life story and that of C N Marcillo are real, why do I say that? You might wonder, it's because the current top 2 team on the USA server did something unbelievable.
But to put it in context, let's look at a real-life case. Imagine a team called "The Gluttons." Not the most fearsome name, right? Well, that's just the beginning of this story. The Gluttons are a football team, but not one of those teams you see in the Champions League, no, they're a neighborhood team, literally!
In the last game of their local league, The Gluttons found themselves in a... complicated situation. They needed to win to be crowned champions. However, there was a small problem. Most of their players were busy in a "hot dog eating contest." Yes, seriously! While the game was going on, The Gluttons' players took turns playing for a while and then running to the eating contest. The first half ended in a tie, as The Gluttons alternated between scoring goals and eating more hot dogs. At halftime, the coach gave them an emotional pep talk and reminded them that, although hot dogs were delicious, the glory of the championship was even tastier.
In the second half, the unthinkable happened. With the score against them and only minutes left, the last Gluttons player pulled off an impressive dribble, evaded a defender, and scored the winning goal. The Gluttons won the championship while the opposing team was left completely baffled!
Now, what many have been waiting for, the epic saga of FTG that has it all: intrigue, twisted strategies, unexpected twists, and... memes, yes, who would have thought, memes.
Let's start at the end, did you really think we were going to start at the end? Let's begin at the beginning: at the start of the season, C N Marcilio Dias seemed invincible, with a squad full of stars and their reigning Super League defender. However, Valiance Crew, with their second-place OVR, wasn't ready to give up without a fight. It seemed like we were in for an epic season, and we were right.
Calm prevailed until midway through the season, when Marcilio made a decision that shook the server. They made two high-profile signings, Agustin Marchesin and Salvatore, with the aim of strengthening their team for complete dominance. This move wasn't well-received by many, and Valiance didn't stand still either. They signed Vizmark and two of the best midfielders on the server, MysTerioN and HUNTER. And there, folks, the battle for glory began.
Feeling overwhelmed by the double competition, Marcilio decided to prematurely exit the Champions Tournament to focus solely on the Super League. Both teams were tied on points, and everything would be decided by goal difference. This is where the plot of this novel gets complicated.
Marcilio, with connections to Latam United, devised a plan for their last match against Valiance: make Latam United lose by WO (Walkover) and concede only 3 goals against them. They moved a Latam player, Negreiros, from a goalkeeper position to a forward, and another goalkeeper left the team, all to ensure the defeat. But a Latam player decided to rebel and changed positions, thwarting Marcilio's plans.
Desperate, they tried to change the position of several players to goalkeeper to lose by WO again, but they no longer had the resources to do so. Then, Agustin Marchesin sent reckless and insensitive messages to Dario, which we emphatically condemn.
Finally, the matches went ahead as planned. Valiance Crew won their match against Latam United, as expected. Marcilio had one last chance to win the Super League: they had to score 6 goals against Los Angeles Clickers. However, the latter played their hearts out and thwarted Marcilio's plans. Memes flooded Discord and WhatsApp, and glory faded before their eyes.Don't ask me why this story happened, ask the team with the most goalkeepers on the server.
5 Minutes Later
Who would have thought that a season in FTG could have so many plot twists? One thing is clear: when it comes to football, anything can happen, even the most twisted strategies and the most unexpected turns. This week's song is "Skin de Bandida" by Oscar Maydon, Junior H, and Gabillito Ballesteros. Enjoy it.
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. This is the first issue of the log after the servers are merged. I hope that everything happened calmly and without problems, and this action will bring a lot of interesting things to the game, so this is my first article for a new audience, and so, dear readers, will we get acquainted? My nickname in the game is Dodo, and my name is Sergey, I live in Ukraine. I hope you will like my articles and you will read them with pleasure. In this article, we will say goodbye to you with the American server and a little nostalgia for the server.
Ten seasons is a relatively short time, during this period a child can be born. In our case, the service life of the American server turned out to be short. But this did not prevent each player from remembering his own moment. In this article, we will slightly compare the results of the server and we will try to recall the best moments that occurred during this short period of the existence of the American server.
Let's start with the most interesting thing last season: the fight in the Super League went to the last goal (and was slightly spoiled by the last match C N Marcílio Dias against Los Angeles Clickers, which lasted 12 hours), and C N Marcílio Dias lacked only two goals scored to become champions.
For ten seasons on the American server there were nine seasons in the Super League. It is worth noting the clubs Leviathan and Latam United, who spent all nine seasons in the super League and never left it. Yes, it's hard to keep a high bar for such a long time from the leaders of the first seasons, they are now at the bottom of the table, but recently the Leviathan club has been able to return to Borbu and occupy the top of the table for several seasons.
The most titles and I will not be afraid of this legendary club on the American server is C N Marcilio Dias. They have three wins in the Super League and three silverware, as well as four wins in the CHAMPIONS TOURNAMENT. Perhaps you will say that Valance Crew also has three wins in the Super League, but they are less titled so there is nothing to discuss here.
But it is worth saying that each club is legendary in its own way, because they have not broken up, but are progressing and increasing competition at every stage. Every club could be here.
After the clubs, we move on to the players. Now I will gather the top team of the American server for my opinion. I warn you this is my opinion and it may differ from yours and there is nothing forbidding in this.
I will assemble the composition according to the 3-1-5-1 scheme
Let's start with the goalkeeper, here I think no one will have any questions because I will put Matushevsky here.
The three defenders are thus Really, Goofy and Destructionnss.
I put Feer Simon in the place of the defensive midfielder.
I put Henrik in the place of the right midfielder
In place of the left midfielder SzaQ Akrobata
The three central midfielders consist Aczak, Krystian Salach and The MysTerioN.
And FavelaSSJ predictably takes the place of the attacker.
This is how, in my humble opinion, the team of the American server looks after ten seasons.
At the end of the article, I would like to wish every player who moves from the American server good luck, I hope everyone will be able to get used to the new pace and time zone and there will be a minimum of problems. I wish more players to increase healthy competition and you will be able to train better. And of course I wish each club more victories and fewer unpredictable results. This concludes this article, I hope you will like it. Sincerely yours, Dodo journalist.
We are unified! Now all players from the US server are together with the European server transformed into a single large server. The idea is to unify a scattered community and build one strong, populated server rather than several smaller servers.
Several gigabytes of data had to be transferred and reconstructed but, thank God, all items, clubs and statistics were not affected and we can continue our football career on the European server where the American server left off. I hope no one forgot to change the email to make it different on both servers, or even deleted the inactive player because if it was the same email they ended up losing the evolution of the American player.
Unfortunately we had some instabilities on the American server at the end of the season, and some matches took a long time to start and lasted a few hours, this interfered with the last round of the Superleague (SL) and the final stretch of the national championships, but now the season is over and we will start with everything new and merged.
Despite being born together at the beginning of this year, the two servers went their separate ways, and we recently did an article comparing the values of items in the US and EU markets and concluded that, if we compare the values by comparing only the items that are at sale on both servers, the European server is more than 60% more expensive than maintaining a player other than the American server. However, now everything changes with increased competitiveness.
Competitiveness this season will be something new and never seen before in the game, as teams that are used to SL, for example, may be left out now with new teams being inserted together, and in the same way in national championships and cups. All teams will have to get used to the new players and teams included, tactics, weekly training, bets, transfers, time zone, among other factors that will be faced in the learning curve of this new phase.
Will we have big favorites this season? It's still early, as the season ended last Monday, and the merge started yesterday (Tuesday), so we're still going to get used to the super server's top teams and the best players in each position.
Will the US and EU server teams come together to compete against the new rivals? Or will their casts mix as if they've known each other for a long time? It is something that we will keep an eye on with the boards of the teams that are making a lot of moves in terms of transfers for the start of the season.
Remembering that you can play on two accounts, but interaction between them will be a violation of the T&C. There will also be a complete new draw of leagues at all levels as many new clubs will enter the game. And the time difference? This is what we must get used to, as the European server time zone, UTC-1, will remain unchanged and will apply to all players.
I had an account on the European server but I thought it would be better to delete it because it had the same email and I didn't use it, I only focused on the American player, and now I'm looking forward to what this merger will be like. Here's to new challenges and new battles between the best players, best teams and may the best win.
And will there be a new event? Ah, I believe we have a new event coming, yes, based on Halloween or the server merger, but it looks like a mega event is coming, let's get ready.
Are you excited to see what this new cycle will be like? I am, so let's play. Oh, and the journal is also merged! Just good news. Leave your comment at the bottom of this page. See you next week. Good luck and happy gaming to everyone!
In a surprising twist of events, the most beloved and feared team, C N Maricillo Dias, has gone from being the undisputed favorite to... well, winning absolutely nothing this season. Ouch! It seems even the best have their off days, or in this case, their off season.
It's as if the football gods conspired against them, and I'm not talking about the zodiac ones, but those star players who just didn't perform as expected. It's kind of like if Superman lost his cape, and Batman had to go without the Batmobile!
The team that used to terrify their opponents with an impenetrable defense and a devastating offense found themselves watching other teams walk away with the trophies. It looks like Marcilio Dias' magic has faded! They had FavelaSSJ, a forward who needs no introduction. He was a genuine goal-scoring machine, at least when facing smaller teams, because against Valiance Crew, well, that's a whole different story!
The stage was set for Marcilio Dias to have a perfect season, taking both the Super League and the Champions Tournament. But Valiance Crew wasn't having any of it. Up until midseason, everything was going as usual. Then, C N Maricillo Dias made a bold move by signing Agustin Marchesin, the server's best ball boy, and Salvatore, the server's best water boy, right in the middle of the season! This move didn't sit well with the community, and the criticisms poured in.
C N Marcelio Dias Team
But Valiance Crew, upon seeing these moves, decided they wouldn't be outdone. They brought in heavy artillery, including the best defender in the US server, Vizmark, The MysTerioN, and the great HUNTER. These signings were pivotal in complicating MD's plans and turning the title fight into a real battle. Spoiler alert: it was a great battle full of excitement and credit spending, but don't ask me, ask Latam United, the team with the most goalkeepers on the server.
As the season progressed, Marcilio decided to withdraw from the Champions, or so it seems because we're not sure of such a decision, to focus on the Super League. But despite their impressive team, they ended up in second place, losing on goal difference! Marchesín and Salvatore, who were supposed to win everything by playing only half the season, came up empty-handed. What a twist of events! MD went from being the favorite to becoming the season's surprise. It sounds like a soap opera made by Televisa, but it's not. It's not all sadness for C N Maricillo Dias, though, as Duka Polidoro won 200 premium keys in a pack, something is something. Right?
In FTG, as in life, sometimes the boldest strategies can lead you to glory or leave you empty-handed, or in this case, with cleats but no trophies. Last season gave us an important lesson: no matter how much money you spend on flash signings, at the end of the day, real victory comes from teamwork, smart strategy, and a bit of luck. In the world of FTG, where plot twists are more surprising than a soap opera episode, only one thing is certain: the fun never runs out! So get ready for more laughs, excitement, and surprises because the next season is just around the corner, a fusion awaits us, and this was the last chance to win it all for many teams, for others, the final cry.
This leads me to ask you, yes, you, reading this article, how are you preparing for the fusion? Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this sports report, and for the song of the week,
I recommend"Nueva Vida" by our buddy, Peso Pluma. Until next time.

John Jairo, born in Medellin 28 years ago, is a name that resonates strongly in the city. He comes from a wealthy family, but what truly defines him is not his material wealth but his sharp mind and passion for football. From a very young age, his intelligence and analytical abilities were evident, not only in his academic pursuits but also in other areas such as sports, social life, and hobbies, paving the way for a career that would change his life.
In his childhood, John Jairo not only played football in the streets of Medellin but also spent hours watching matches and dissecting strategies. His love for the game was evident, and his family supported him wholeheartedly. During family gatherings, while others enjoyed their meals, John Jairo and his grandfather, a passionate football fan and a supporter of Atletico Nacional, discussed tactics, players, recent matches, referee decisions, and even the chants of the fans.
Despite his privileged background, John Jairo never felt disconnected from the reality of Medellin. His family often organized charitable events to help the less fortunate. This commitment to the community instilled important values in him, such as humility and the desire to give back to his hometown, something it had given him abundantly – unconditional love.
One of the most influential figures in John Jairo's life was his childhood hero, the legendary Colombian goalkeeper, René Higuita. On one occasion, John Jairo had the opportunity to meet Higuita in person during a charitable event, even though he was quite young. This experience marked a before and after in his life. Higuita not only autographed a jersey for him but also shared anecdotes and advice with the young football enthusiast. He was deeply impressed by his idol's humility and passion, and that meeting reinforced his determination to succeed in football.
As John Jairo grew, so did his ambition. Combining his intelligence and passion for football, he set out not only to become a prominent player but also to change the game from within. Over the years, he struck up a friendship with Khieven 22, another football enthusiast and a player with relentless drive. Khieven 22 was the driving force that Jhon needed to reach his goals, and together, they shared dreams of being part of a high-level football team.
The opportunity arose when, after years of dedication and effort, John Jairo and Khieven 22, friends from their university internships, joined a new project: Wolverhampton. John Jairo, the mastermind behind the tactics, and Khieven, the driving force on the field, became an unbeatable duo. Wolverhampton thrived under their leadership, ascending in the league and earning the admiration of fans worldwide.
During its early seasons, Wolverhampton played in the second division of Spain, winning it quite easily. They even triumphed in the first division by securing both the cup and the league of the country without losing a single match. This led them to dream big, aiming for the SuperLeague.
Both Khieven 22 and John Jairo got down to work to assemble a squad that was not only competitive but also ensured that each player had a pivotal role within the team. This fostered an unprecedented camaraderie that was reflected on the field.
Today, thanks to John Jairo's intelligence and the collective effort of all the players, Wolverhampton is a team that has never been relegated. They have clinched the European tournament, and even though they lost the final in the following season, the team feels stronger than ever, and the fans are grateful. The stadiums are always packed.
John Jairo never forgot his roots in Medellín, and his success at Wolves allowed him to give back to his community, something he always wanted. He has a dining hall that operates every day, providing meals for the homeless. He organizes charitable events and plays benefit matches. He organized football clinics for underprivileged children, donated funds to local charities, and became a role model for young talents in Medellín. It's said that one of his upcoming projects in life is to establish a Wolves youth training facility in Medellin and expand it throughout South America.
The story of John Jairo, from his humble beginnings to his success at Wolverhampton, is a testament to the passion, intelligence, and determination that can open doors and change lives. His journey inspires everyone to pursue their dreams with dedication and humility, regardless of where life takes them.

¡See you soon, warriors!
Speak my consecrated ones! A very good morning to you, at the end of the event, the atmosphere gets a little sad, you know, without salt, missing something to make you happy... you may not even be enjoying the event, but as soon as it ends, that sadness hits, I know how you are feeling. feeling, I'm the same. But changing the subject here, what do you think of this historic event? It could have happened before with the players lost, right? I think so too, but maybe those 50k of energy we received made everything better, those 50k were really good... how did they think of something that good? Anyway, with this update we won't be playing for a while, so how about a newspaper to keep you excited? Today I'm going to talk about the importance of a strong defensive line, something that nobody thinks about, they just want to know about midfield and attack, but we know that without a solid defense there's no point in having a strong attack, you score 3 goals and concede 5, it's not enough Right, my dears, so below is important information for us to know.
We all know that having a strong attack is important to winning many titles, what we don't realize is that having a strong defense line is one of the most essential pillars for a team's success in football tournaments. This sector of the field plays a crucial role in defense, and its solidity can be decisive in achieving victory and winning titles.
Firstly, a strong back line offers security and stability to the team. The players' trust in their defenders allows the rest of the time to focus more on attacking, knowing that there is a solid rearguard protecting the goal. This promotes a balance between offensive and defensive actions, increasing the chances of success, the midfield can go more forward knowing that there is a reliable defender back there who will save you from danger.
Furthermore, a strong backline provides a solid foundation on which to build the game. Defenders are not only responsible for preventing goals, but also for initiating attacks, providing the link between defense and midfield. With a solid defense, time can maintain possession of the ball and create scoring opportunities with greater security, Diniz's famous tic tac, but without the danger of suffering retaliation, perhaps Guardiola's tic tac.
Discipline and organization are fundamental characteristics of a strong defense line. Defenders need to act in sync, maintaining adequate formation and coverage, avoiding gaps for opponents. Effective communication and mutual understanding between members of the defensive line are essential aspects of ensuring a cohesive and efficient defense.
Another benefit of a strong defense is minimizing the risk of conceding goals. In competitive tournaments, where every goal counts, having a robust backline can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Games are often decided by narrow margins, and a solid defense can make the difference at crucial moments. An example of this was the defensive difference between Valience Crew and Marcílio Dias, the difference in a title was 2 goals, which could have been avoided if Marcílio had a strong defense line like the Crew, which was not possible in this season.
Furthermore, a strong back line contributes to the team's winning mentality. Knowing that the defense is solid and reliable creates a positive team spirit, motivating players to give their best effort and believe they can win. This confidence is vital in moments of pressure, where determination and belief in success can tip the balance in the team's favor.
In short, having a strong defense line is a key element in winning titles in football tournaments. It provides security, stability, balance between attack and defense, the basis for building the game, discipline, organization, reducing the risk of goals and a winning strategy. Investing in strengthening this sector of time could be the way to achieve glory on the sports field.
With that, I'll be here guys! What did you think of the text? A good defender is another level, right? 3 defenders then plus your defensive midfielder is what? Too good, my dears, that's it. I'll stop here, see you now on the next server! Until next time, we're together my dears!
Welcome to a new edition of "Let's Talk Tactics." I want to extend a warm welcome to the entire EU server! I hope to meet the needs of this server and share a bit about myself. I have extensive experience as a manager of my team, having played that role since the game's inception on the Latam server. I continued my role on the US server, and I've been leading a team for many seasons. Along this journey, I've discovered the best strategies for every moment in the game to reduce the chances of mistakes and increase our chances of success.
In each edition, we'll analyze a tactic or have a versus match between two tactics of your choice. You'll also find weekly tip & tricks posts and counterstrategy discussions. During the analyses, I'll share my insights on what to do in different game situations to use the tactic that suits that moment best.
I assure you that I am very receptive to your comments and requests, so if you have any questions, feel free to reach out, and I'll do my best to help.
In the US Journal, after analyzing season after season, I concluded that the most commonly used tactics are the 3-1-5-1, 3-1-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-5-1, and occasionally the 3-5-1-1. I understand that something similar might be happening here on the EU server, which is why I suggest that, in these initial editions, we can analyze these tactics to start fresh on this server.
Now, let's dive into the analysis of the first tactic on the EU server. We'll be covering the most important tactic: The 3-1-5-1
Analysis of the 3-1-5-1:
Starting from the premise that having the strongest midfield is key to winning in this game, I can affirm that having 6 out of 11 players contributing to the midfield is "a lot." If one of these players is a defensive midfielder with a "bonus," it becomes indispensable for achieving victory. Naturally, this tactic has a weak attack, so the key to using it effectively is to have an exceptional forward!
Tips & Tricks:
It's absolutely crucial for the best midfielder on the team to play as a defensive midfielder, and if they have a bonus, it creates a significant advantage in both midfield and defense. They don't necessarily need to have high aggression, but precision, efficiency, and creativity are essential. The defensive midfielder assists in both defensive and offensive corners, so they should excel in set-piece plays. This player can't be just anyone; they must be the most well-rounded player on the team, possessing skills for different situations. If you exploit this advantage, you can significantly increase your chances of winning matches!
To beat the 3-1-5-1 in matches with similar overall ratings, consider using the same tactic but with strategic positional adjustments. Alternatively, defend with four defenders, especially if you can use the 4-2-3-1 and have two strong central midfielders. If your opponent insists on using the 3-1-5-1, defending with four defenders can greatly reduce the chances of their forward capitalizing on scoring opportunities. If you're determined to win, you should use the same tactic, ensure your midfielders are playing aggressively, and focus your training on playmaking to dominate the midfield. You should also have a better defensive midfielder and a great forward. Be aware that it's a very challenging tactic to overcome in matches with similar overall ratings; victory often comes down to details, making a strong midfield essential.
Ideal Moment to Use This Tactic:
This tactic is best suited for starting a match and isn't meant for specific moments, like ultra-offensive or ultra-defensive tactics
In conclusion, this tactic is perfect for kicking off any match. However, don't be too stubborn; it's impossible for this tactic to conquer all strategies. It's not the best choice when facing a team with four defenders. On the flip side, in the upcoming editions, I'll provide you with more strategies to tackle each tactic!
