  1. First Move - TS Galaxy to Mamelodi Sundowns Appointment On the back our success in the Cup, opponents Mamelodi Sundowns have sacked their manager, interviewed me and hired me within 3 weeks. This is a massive opportunity and one I couldn't turn down. A massive, historical club with multiple honours, this gives us a great chance to win some honours. The only negative is a 3rd placed finish last season means no Champions League football this year. Edit: I was wrong, we are in the Champions League Preliminary draw.
  2. Season 2 - 2020/21 Competitions National First Division Season Preview Results 1 Results 2 League Table A loss in the first game was followed by 11 straight wins, and we never really looked like losing. In the end we managed to seal the title with 2 games and played some superb football along the way. NedBank Cup Results 11/04/2021 23/05/2021 This team does love this competition. A second triumph in the clubs six year existence and we did it by beating some of the big guns along the way. The above dates show the game when saved just to show there is no save/reload nonsense going on over here. Winning this has meant we qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup, effectively Africa's Europa League. This should provide the club with some much needed income as we currently sit £1.4m in the red even after our cup win. Playing Squad Transfers Playing Squad End of season award After last seasons play off heartbreak, we had a busy summer of shifting the numerous dead wood at the club, re;easing 40 players in total, and bolstering the squad with some better players. I used the loan market wisely, and got some players who could easily play in higher leagues. We signed 10 players, spending only £5k but managed to balance the wage bill to stay within budget. Next Season Manager Profile After this season, I genuinely think that with the right additions, we can potentially challenge for the title. We have already agreed deals for 2 players who join on free transfers in the summer, and with the lure of continental football, should be able to snap up a few more. We have a young and talented team, with a few experienced players in the mix which gives the squad good balance. Add to that, they seem to fit my tactics perfectly. I will keep m eye out for bigger roles, as I still havent been able to start a coaching badge after 2 seasons of play. Club Career Leagues Cups Season Nation Division Club 1st 2nd 1st 2nd Cont.

  3. Game Set Up Manager Profile Appointment Our first role is with South African National First Division side TS Galaxy. The job intrigued me as even though they were languishing in 15th place, they actually won the NedBank Cup in 2018/19 so I thought they must have a few decent players etc. Once appointed, I realised just how big a job this is going to be. A club struggling financially, with a bloated squad of average players, but a decent group of talented youngsters not being played. Season 1 - 2019/20 League Table Play Off Table Results End Of Season Awards I had expected to struggle after taking charge with 15 games to go sat in 15th placed. We almost performed a miracle, unbeaten in those 15 games saw us fly up and finish 3rd. This put us in the Play Offs, but these proved a step too far. We managed 4 draws, and finished bottom out of the 3 sides. Next Season The board have cut the wage budget from £26k a week to £18k . The club needs a major squad reduction, but this is going to be quite a simple task. 95% of the players at the clubs contract expire this summer, so even though I wont be able to sell anyone, I will be able to slash the wage budget by a hefty amount. We should also be able to get a few decent youngsters in on loan and if we can keep or form going, should be in the promotion race next season. With the clubs finances being so poor, I am yet to start a coaching badge. Club Career Leagues Cups Season Nation Club 1st 2nd 1st 2nd Cont.

  4. I spent a year on holiday applying for every job and had 2 interviews. Seems impossible to start there this year.
  5. Experimented with a few set ups and found it impossible to get a job in China, S. Korea, South and North America. However I have managed to get a role at S.African National Division Side TS Galaxy. Sat in 15th place with 12 games played, the board expect a relegation battle, but with only 12 points between us and 3rd, anything is possible.
  6. Does seem like a big jump. I have noticed that your manager is assigned tactical preferences on this years game. Im one season in and have "plays a possession based style" and "plays high pressing style of play". This may help get a better than expected job based on style of play maybe.
  7. I have China, S. Africa, S. Korea and Indonesia loaded as playable ATM so hopefully doing well in just Indonesia gets me a high enough rep to move on.
  8. It is much harder this year, but I am hoping a couple of good seasons in Indonesia opens up the opportunity in even a lower league in China or South Africa.
  9. After failing miserably on my first attempt, im back with another attempt. Appointment Manager Profile Handed the reigns with just 2 games remaining in the league, sitting in 6th positions means we wont be getting a easy title and will have to focus on next season. We are however in the cup semi final, our first game being the first leg and we lost 1-0 to Persib Bandung who currently top the league.
  10. How are the other sides doing in terms of facilities and semi pro status. Im one season behind your game but we only have around 5 amateur teams left. No professional yet until we go pro this summer.
  11. Nice to see you progressing along. I think we had £3m in the bank when the board finally accepted my request to turn pro.
  12. salute. That's a brilliant season. That amount of games is gonna suit you once you get back to your usual amount of players.
  13. Yeah im enjoying the struggle myself. In my first attempt I found it alot easier due to allowing myself loan signings etc, but using only youth/Sammarinese players has added a whole new level to it.
  14. Congrats on staying up. I found the first season in serie B to be a real tough slog aswel.
  15. I have noticed stefano pellini and Mateo Gaspieri are now Sammarinese in your save, how has that happened? Didnt think it was possible to gain Sammarinese nationality? I am San Marino in my save and would love to have them play for the national side. Cracking progress btw, really enjoying the save.
