    Also as a goal, I want to play as the highest geographical football team in the world, but I have no idea what team that is so can anyone give me any help with that?

    I don't think the highest geographical football ground is in Scandinavia (rather in Bolivia, or maybe Nepal), unless you mean the northernmost club, in which case it's Norway's Hammerfest FK. They're unplayable at the start of the game, but I suppose they could get promoted to the 2nd Division in future seasons.

    Yep, I mean the Northernmost Club :P I don't think football is played as well in high altitude with air thinning and stuff ;)

    Are you sure it's not a Russia side or a side from Greenland?

    Siumut Amerdlock Kunuk - Coca Cola GM - 2011

    Going into the Champions League next season.

    League Table - Championship Playoff

    Fixtures - Only 2 defeats all season, it was a good first season

    Squad - I have a good squad....by Greenlands standards

    Transfers - I didn't bring in to many players but i did end up bringing a family of 4 brothers in and they performed well

    Key Player

    Allan Schroeder ST - Amazing, signed him on a free, to only Greenland player to score an international goal and set the league alight scoring 23 goals.


    Also got this in my inbox:



    A new stadium and a Youth Academy on the way aswell

    I don't really know who's the best, but Norwegian Rosenborg came third in their ECC Group behind Arsenal & Juventus but ahead of Porto, they went on to lose 4-2 agg to Porto in the EURO CUP Knockout round, which is the best of any team so far.

    Siumut Amerdlock Kunuk - Coca Cola GM - 2011

    After last years domestic campaign I was wondering if we could retain the title, and preferably do even better than last year.

    Coca Cola GM Group A
    Coca Cola GM Champions Playoff

    After winning last year, I did everything to win it again, and we did, we don't really get to much of a challenge from Greenlandic teams now.


    Fixtures - Only 1 loss and 1 draw all season and typically, we lost the last game of the season again, so we didn't get undefeated all year but it was as good as.


    Champions League - We got through the Champions Qualifier 1 quite easily beating Jeunesse Esch 3-0 at home and drawing 3-3 away, the we came up Dynamo Minsk and god, they were harsh, we lost 7-0 at home and 4-0 away....disgraceful even though we are an amateur team, it did give us over 150k in the bank though.


    Squad - This squad is nowhere good enough for Europe, but domestically, we were near unbeatable.



    Key Players


    Johan-Frederik Zeeb - A goalkeeper who was one of the 4 brothers I picked up last year, may of conceded absolutely loads Internationally and Continentally but did domestically well, conceding 8 in 15.


    Zakorat Zeeb - Another one of the 4 brothers, while his strike partner scored 9 which was down alot from last year, Zakorat improved and went on to score 12 from 12 in the league, and managed to score Continentally aswell.

    Next Season - I see Greenland as a country for very far in the future, so I'm going to resign from SAK and try to get a club from a different country to take me on....besides, 2 years in Greenland and I've gotten frost bite and 8 fingers left.

    Sindri - 3. Deild Karla A Ri­ill - 2013

    League Table

    A very, very close table, we shouldn't of won, with 2 games left we were 6 points behind but Alftanes blew it by losing the last 2 games and we won on goal difference.

    Promotion Playoff

    A Playoff between the Champions of the 3rd Division, Top 2 get promoted Bottom 2 stay in the 3rd Division next season.

    Fixtures

    As you can see, we got to the 3rd round of the cup before we lost 3-1 against Premier Divisions' Fram at home

    Squad

    I brought in the Zeebs from SAK and an Uzbeki & a Ukranian striker in on frees. The Uzbeki only made a sub apperance so didn't really shine at all.

    Key Players:

    Gunnar Valsson - A good all-round midfielder, and a good average rating of 7.52 from 13 games.

    Atil Olafsson - The clubs star striker...aged 22, potentionally good enough for the 1. Deild so I hope he sticks around for a while.

    Sindri - 2. Deild Karla - 2014

    League Table | Past Positions

    We started of the season very.....plain I guess with form of 0-8-0 but then we won 1, and then another, and then another and we didn't look back, barely conceded and finished the season undefeated with form of 9-13-0.

    Fixtures

    We exited the cup early but I didn't mind as we got to focus on the league which I found more important.

    Squad

    Just after I got rid of loads of deadwood who'd never played a game or had pretty much no potential and wouldn't stand a chance playing in a higher division.

    Sindri - 1. Deild Karla - 2015

    League Table | Past Positions

    IA were run away winners being 15 points ahead and ending the season unbeaten, we were consistently in 2nd with us only being in 3rd place a couple of times but we were just able to get promoted into the Urvalsdeild.

    Fixtures

    We were consistent, scored quite alot barely let any in.

    Icelandic Cup Deildabikar

    We managed to get out of the Group Stage only to lose 2-1 Away to our parent club Fylkir.

    Icelandic Cup VISA-Bikar

    We got back at Fylkir winning away on pens after drawing 2-2, we beat Fram 2-0 and in the Semi-Final we were against KR which we won 6-5 on pens after drawing 3-3, we beat Vikingur in the 2. Deild 2-0 in the final so next year we're going to Europe!!!

    Squad

    As you can see the squad is slowly building up with foreigners, we have a few good Icelandic players, but foreigners are the way forward.

    I have a feeling I may be leaving Russia prematurely, finances in a downwards spiral and noone will sign a new contract....

    Spartak Kostroma - Russian Second Division West - 2016


    League Table | Past Positions


    I joined the club on the 29th of July the club were expected to finish 8th, they were currently in 13th and going down with form 4-8-5, and then I joined, we finished the season in 5th place with form of 15-10-7.


    Fixtures 1 | Fixtures 2


    Squad


    A decent size squad but half of their contracts are running out and NONE of them are even wanting to have talks about new contracts, so I'll give Russia one more season and hope I can get somedecent players from my scouts and be able to at least get mid-table for next season.

    I've been to Kostroma! Beautiful little town on the Golden Ring, didn't see any sign of a football club though so I can't imagine the foundations are there to support a huge club. Good early form with them though, good luck for next season
