Perishing Partizan; The First Transfer Window

The last time I blogged about this series, I had shown you the starting setup I had left Partizan with. By now, they have appointed a new manager and have progressed through the first transfer window since my departure. I want to see which transfer moves the AI has made, how it impacted their financial status and basically how the team is doing in general.

The financial status

As I mentioned last time, I need FMRTE to view the financial status, due to not actively being in charge of Partizan. This is what their financial status looks like as we wrap up the first transfer window.

Compared to the starting point, these are the main changes.

On their total finances, Partizan have spent/lost roughly 43 million. Transfer-wise, the team has spent 42,9 million of its available transfer budget. That would mean that outside of the transfers, they haven’t done that bad financially.

Perishing Partizan; The Starting Setup

Just to create a bit of perspective here, in this particular save I was in charge of Partizan Belgrade for three silverware-laden seasons. Three titles, three cups and three Champions League wins were testimony to some shrewd business maneuvers, superb scouting and innovative tactical efforts. If you win three Champions League titles in succession, it’s not a matter of flukes or one-season-wonders, it’s structural success. So how long will it take the AI to completely and utterly destroy the setup?
