  3. Spanish Summers: A Primer to the Segunda Division B History First organized in 1929, Segunda B was then the third division of Spanish league football behind the Primera Division and Segunda A; it was then reorganized after the 1929 season as the Tercera Division which then existed until 1934. Reactivated in 1943 after an interregnum mainly exacerbated by both the Civil War and WW2, it carried on the Tercera name until another reorganization in 1977 saw the Segunda B name readopted, and Tercera used to refer to the 4th-tier league. Initially conceived as a 40-club division with 2 groups of 20 teams, it was streamlined in 1986 into a 22-club single table division, before being re-organized the following year into the format used today – 80 clubs grouped into 4 20-club mini-leagues based on region. Organization Each group in Segunda B plays 38 games with each other; the 4 clubs relegated from Segunda Division and the 18 clubs promoted from Tercera Division are assigned to the appropriate regional group. Reserve sides are eligible for promotion assuming their parent club is in the Primera Liga, while clubs in Liga 123 who have their reserves in Segunda B will have their reserves relegated should the parent club get relegated; the reserve side is also barred from promotion. The 4 group winners go on to compete in the Segunda B Championship play-off, where the two clubs that advance to the Championship round earn promotion to Segunda Division. The losers join the 4 runners-up, 3rd-placers and 4th-placers in another playoff to determine the last 2 promotion places, where they compete as follows: Round 1 – 4th v 2nd/4th v 2nd/4th v 2nd/4th v 2nd/3rd v 3rd/3rd v 3rd Round 2 – 4th v 2nd winner against Championship playoff loser/3rd v 2nd/4th v 2nd winner against Championship playoff loser/3rd v 2nd Round 3 – Round 2 winners drawn against each other, higher-ranked club hosts 2nd leg The winners take the last 2 slots in Segunda Division The bottom 4 clubs in each group are relegated to Tercera Division, along with the losers in the relegation play-outs contested between the four 16th-place clubs in each group. Meanwhile, the Top 5 non-reserve clubs in each group, regardless of winning their promotion playoff qualify for the Copa del Rey, along with the four non-reserve clubs with the most points outside the Top 5, entering the First Round; 6 clubs earn byes to the Second Round. The Tercera Division champion from the previous season also qualifies; if the champion is a reserve side, the Tercera runners-up also qualifies. IRL, some Tercera Division clubs also qualify to the Copa; in FMM though, only 4 Tercera Division clubs are included in the First Round pot, with the shortfall being made up by more Segunda B sides included. General Club Profile Segunda B clubs have stadium capacities averaging around 7,114 seats; AE Prat have the smallest stadium in Segunda B, seating only 500 fans, while Real Murcia’s Condomina holds 31,079 fans. Facillities-wise, the league averages a Adequate/Adequate in training and youth facilities, with CD El Ejido and Racing Santander possessing the best set-ups at Impressive/Good, and Prat having Poor/Below Average set-ups carrying the rear. Interesting Clubs AE Prat – Their facilities may be poorer than what most players may like, but the Catalan minnows won promotion by winning Tercera Division last season and looked halfway competitive. They may have gone straight back down IRL, but can you defy the odds and keep them up in-game?And can you build them up long-term to trump Eibar and become La Liga's new small-town champion? Racing Santander – The former La Liga mid-table stalwarts have had a rough time of it since relegation in 2011; suffering much the same fate as Blackburn Rovers minus the league title after being taken over by an Indian consortium, they’ve bounced around the 2nd and 3rd tiers since. Poised to return IRL if they win their promotion playoff, can you both return them to La Liga and give this club some much-needed stability? Hercules – Arguably best known as David Trezeguet’s last club in Europe, the Alicante-based club drifted steadily down the 2nd-tier since that ill-fated spell in La Liga back in 2010 and find themselves stuck in the third tier for the past 3 years. Can you push them back up and erase the sour taste of their last top-flight campaign? Segunda B feels like an odd mix of the Championship and the Conference – with the amount of relatively big clubs stuck in there mixing up with seemingly wee little village clubs, there’s a lot of stories to be forged here. Pick up your crucible and make one!

    Player Interaction mate - remember to praise them whenever they have good games and constructively criticize if they have poor ones
  10. Das Dritte: A Primer to the German 3. Liga History From this.... The DFB set up the 3.Liga in 2008 to provide a streamlined path between the then extant 2.Bundesliga and the then-2 headed 3rd tier of the Regionalliga Nord & Regionalliga Sud, taking the 7 teams between 3rd and 10th in both leagues, and adding the 4 clubs relegated from the previous 2.Bundesliga season and constituting the initial 3. Liga membership. this The two Regionalliga then became part of a newly-reorganized 3-headed 4th tier until further reorganization after 2012 saw the Regionalliga grow into 5 leagues organized by geographical proximity. A typical Regionalliga crowd c. 2010 Organization The 3.Liga is a 20-team league that plays 38 fixtures per club. The champions and runners-up earn automatic promotion to the 2. Bundesliga while the 3rd-place team competes in a two-legged relegation/promotion play-off with the 16th-placer in the 2. Bundesliga. The bottom 3 clubs are automatically relegated to the appropriate Regionalliga to be replaced by the winners of play-offs between the 5 Regionalliga champions and the runners-up of the Regionalliga with the most members. Reserve teams can advance no further than 3. Liga and are relegated should their parent club drop to 3.Liga, or be in danger of dropping to 3.Liga in case of relegation. General Club Profile Most of the clubs in 3. Liga have Average/Average training and youth facilities, and stadia with an average capacity of around 12 – 13,000. Look at those crowds! Werder Bremen II have the smallest stadium and Jahn Regensburg have the lowest-quality facilities, while Hansa Rostock have the best facilities and MSV Duisburg have the biggest stadium. Interesting Clubs Hansa Rostock – One of the bigger sides in 3. Liga, the former Bundesliga stalwarts have been stuck in 3.Liga since getting relegated at the end of 2008; having also fallen victim to the relegation playout to Ingolstadt 2 years later, they’ve been stuck in mid-table since. Look at how loyal they are! Are you the one to revive them and challenge Leipzig for the honor of being East Germany’s best? Preuben Munster – One of the founding members of the Bundesliga, they only spent one season there and have been in the wilderness since. Feed them Success? Not a particularly glamorous squad since the days of the Oberligen, can you bring them some success? Jahn Regensburg – Historically a yo-yo club between the 3rd and 4th levels of German football, they’ve gained momentum over the past 5 years and find themselves back in 3. Liga for the first time in 5 years. Those ultras will have a LOT more to cheer for IRL, they’re now in 2. Liga; can you match that accomplishment and see them kick on? 3. Liga is an interesting league, and I certainly would like to see you try it! A lot of stories and relative fallen giants here make it a rich tapestry, so go out there and weave your own story!

    Europe... It's been 12 years since Pompey last stepped on a continental stage. A lot has changed since then.... Back then we had to play 4 other teams in a group only once.... We may not have had the honor to visit the San Siro but the Rossonero had the pleasure of visiting Fortress Fratton... ... we may have lost in Germany.... .... but signed off in style at the Abe Lenstra Stadion hoping then it would be the first of many trips to Thursday Nights on Channel 5. Until the darkness happened. 12 years spent in the wilderness. Europa League. After 12 years, it was time to come home.
