Also loaded current international and top club players from each continents along with plays of several nationalities to help with international management.
This save has no real aim other than to start as low as possible and work my way up. Also aim to take a lowly national team as far as I can.
Ever played the role of an amateur psychologist? I'm doing that right now. My first foray into managment is the kind of thing a professor could write a thesis done. About 3 airports and 20 odd hours later I've landed in Southeast Asia in the nation of
I also applied for jobs with the national team but had no luck
As for the league itself it consists of 14 teams representing each of the provinces of East Timor (The capital region has two such teams). The team I've chosen represents the Oecusse region which is an exclave separated from the rest of Timor-Leste by Indonesia. Each team plays each other once from May to August and all games take place at the Municipal Stadium in the capital Dili. The winner qualifies for the AFC Presidents Cup, the continental competition for nations labeled as 'emerging'. The league began in 2010 and is sponsored by the company Digicel who have a deal to 2015. A kit deal also exists with Adidas until 2021.
Good luck, I've played in an emerging asian nation before and I won the presidents cup, needless to say the next season I was entered for it again! I don't think you can ever get into the AFC Cup or champions league; with an emerging nation
You can't sadly as the dynamic league rep seems to only work in relation to European leagues. It's something I hope is fixed in 2013 as it somewhat kills the longevity of managing in nations outside the nations who play the in the AFC champions league
A mid season update after 7 games? Such are the perils of managing in such small nations.
Pre-season was nothing of note as I had only a month of it and could not arrange any friendlies so the time was spent buying players. I was extremely limited in who I could bring in (134 targets appear in my player search, says it all really) in. Even now my squad is not complete so I need to make do with players I could find and what I had already
Top half, nothing more, nothing less. With such a short season just one slip up can knock you down a few places and given my inconsistent form I never really was a serious threat to the title. Several games were lost on mistakes by my defenders (from what I can tell) so I'm sticking around I'll need to try and improve composure/concentration. The finish of 6th was about the predicted 13th but this is null and void as because there is no prior position history the predictions were alphabetical i.e. if you were last alphabetically you'd be predicted last. Due to this half the teams in the league axed there manager.
Given the hectic schedule I used the majority of my squad with only five of my squad playing every game. With no one getting above 7 for an avg rating no-one really stood out but I'd say my best players were the following (those of a nervous dispostion should look away due to these amazingly woeful stats, yes these are my BEST players)
Nothing really of note, pretty stable, most of the money goes towards stadium maintenance (given that all teams share the one pitch you can imagine the kind of abuse it takes)
In all first season of average, not the worst nor the best. Season doesn't start again till April so I've got plenty of time to decide whether to move or give the league another crack. Should I stick around or jump ship after 5 months at helm?
I think I might be here for next season. I applied for about 12 jobs (English 5th level, Hong Kong 2nd level, Greece 2nd level, Algeria 1st and 2nd, Indonesia 1st and 2nd - also the closest nation to me, Uruguay 2nd level, Turkey 2nd level) and all were laughed off. On a plus note one of my players (Alfredo) is attracting interest from Turkey which is very surprising (it should be noted though he has played outside of East Timor in America, Australia and Portugal so I'd guess he's one of the more reputable players from East Timor).
