All You Need to Know: Racing Club de Lens

RC Lens

Just finished my first season with Lens and wow, didn't even expect to see us finishing 2nd! Just created a tactic based on the players at the club and literally flew off. Pushed PSG all the way til 10 games left, and sadly they beat us and pulled away. Maybe I am overachieving already with Lens?

Also, huge special mentions goes to Openda, who smashed 42 goals in 39 games in all competitions! Surprised he haven't got called up to Belgium senior squad ffs.

Huge mention to Jovic, who absolutely caused havoc down the left hand side

TRANSFERS

Most of them are already signed when I took over,

I have signed the following players
Hedl, Jovic, Datro Fofana, Christensen, Guliksen and Pascanu and Marshall-Rutty and few many youngsters.

Pretty please with Rutty's development since joining

Out - Fofana wanted to leave due to Spurs interest in him so off he went.

Slowly playing Sylla, more into first team football as Fofana's replacement and seems to have done well.

Lastly, we won Coupe de France!

Surprised we won it easily in the final, especially with Le Harve, knocked out PSG in the semi-final!

Brilliant result finishing 2nd mate with Lens and well done on the cup win. It's going to be tough to top that season.

How do you think the team can handle the CL?

Definitely I agree.

Think I have came across a bug, can't even offer contract to coaches or scouts to my backroom team 😞 Sadly this have stopped me playing FM for few weeks now.

Might start new game now sadly.

That's a shame mate. I haven't heard of that one so far but not something you can continue with for sure.

Im gutted, was really enjoying my Lens save, yet I can only offer zero wage to any staff that I want to hire or renew my staff contracts. However, I started this on beta.

I have decided to carry on with this save regardless, however my director of football can offer coaches new contract. So god knows how! Anyway I have recieved this from Lyon,

Tough choice to make here, Lyon seems to be a rebuilding project and get them back to the top again but still enjoying it with Lens.

Goodbye, Lens and hello Lyon! I decided to take this job as I felt Lyon is a huge rebuilding project, Also I can offer new scouts a contract, must be lens problems?

I have decided to take this job as I felt it would be an exciting project for me to rebuild Lyon to former glory again.

Current squad

Pretty happy with the current squad but feels some players are due to be replacing due to their age, currently got 20M to spend. Will spend alot of time looking at whole squad across the club and improve the structure and improve the backroom staff as well. Will be using the same tactic I have used with Lens as well.

I'm happy to see you carry this save on. I enjoyed my time in France in 2022 on pass the save. I've come across many bugs and I've not been able to bring myself to play much FM lately especially not my Graham Potter save, I may start again myself and a fresh story but I need to think about where I go

I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes @Johno. It's a team with some good young talent, especially Cherki!

The downfall of PSG has started 😀

I signed Cherki in my Sheff Wed save on 2022 for 2.6mill. He stayed with me all the way could have cashed in at 150mill but the kid loved the owls too much

2.6m was a steal mate. I'm surprised nobody has snapped him up yet.

Lost interest in my Lyon save, so I am doing a redux with Lens, saved the game before going to Lyon, so already played pre season.

Arranged tour to China at end of last season, good to see Openda, carries on his scoring for us 😄 

Transfers

Not much to say apart from bringing in 2 players

Signed him last season but had to wait til the summer as he was on loan to Westerlo from Club Brugge. Starter at left back.

Took a huge risk on him and couldn't see his stats fully so took a risk, so don't know how to sum him up! :lol:

He's back at Lens 😀

That's a tough CL group so best of luck mate. Any reason for the 'ban' on new staff?

Absolutely no idea, was trying all summer to bring in new staff but all of a sudden I can, probaby a bug. Have also strengthened the backroom staff to improve the coaching set up, which I will post up shortly.

Decided to bring in coaches like Bergkamp and D'Agostino as we were bit weak in defence and possession section.

Here is after we made those appointments

I am also still looking to bring in more coaches and also the U's19.

Finally, got my number 1 target for U's19 manager! No stranger to the club, was player, assistant manager at the club.

HUGE improvement to previous one

More ironically, Troyes, wants him as their U's19 manager! 😅

My scout just found this hidden gem! 🤯 They only want 1.5M for him, could be Jovic replacement if I were to sell him.

My other scout also found this hidden gem too, costing me 2.4M. Already got 3 caps for u's21. Might have to keep an eye on his current club 😉
