The Begining

Joining with two games left of season 4 the Gangstaz were relegated into a IV Series that was full of bots. The lack of competition nearly resulted in the team being removed as the manager had no real interest or reason to login.

Two times hattrick officials had to e-mail the owner to inform him to log in or lose his side.

The III.7 Era

With a new lease of life for the game, having secured his first trainees (Two youth pulls and a Spanish signing) West Coast Gangstaz built up a rivalry with fellow III.7 side FingersInCider. It was this rivarly that inspired the Gangstaz management to concentrate on the footballing side of the organisation. Which resulted in the club securing their first series III title and earning a play off to reach series II (Which they lost 2-0)

The Big Re-Build Era

Having failed to reach Division II, the chairman sold on the entire squad (With the exception of 3 players) during Season 13 and brought in an excellent trainer and 10 young playmakers which were to become the Gangstaz most successful side.

Season 14 seen them clinch the IV.33 title in the first season of asking, while midfielder Zelaya won the first of his eleven U-20 call up's. Moving into III.2 the club continued to improve and in Season 17 finished second in the league, losing out on goal difference and making it to the final of the Scottish Cup.

Season 18 saw the club win III.2 with 13 of the 14 league matches resulting in wins for the Gangstaz.

The Clear Out

Having reached Division 2, the management took the suprise move of once again selling the entire squad, the club is currently falling down the division as it builds up its money ready for another great era.

Management Errors

All new players are advised NOT to make these mistakes....

No Training Programme

Probably the number one source of income in hattrick is training players to a high standard then selling them on, West Coast Gangstaz never had a training programme in place from Season 4 - Season 8.

Season 9, 10, 11 and 12 Seen the club only training three main players in the playmaking skill.

It was not until Season 13, almost 9 seasons of exsistance, that the management recruited 10 players to train in playmaking!

5-5-0 Counter Attack

When using counter attack you can afford to lose the midfield battle so long as your defence and attack are better than your opponents. However the Gangstaz manager fielded NO attackers and still counter-attacked in (15032709). Gangstaz where lucky to escape with a 1-1 draw due to a special event goal.
