    Looking forward to seeing how you'll do with RB Salzburg

    That's where we got Noe from Apparently, the media promoted us from likely to finish 12th to 4th when we bought Jibrin.

    for some reason whenever African teams play in the confederation cup, it's always their B side who plays.

    Busting my wage structure to get him though we have plenty to play with. We'll see if he signs. Offered the South African £450 I think. This is the Brazilian. He's on £180 a week. Not that bad really.

    some weird stuff happening in this FM universe (Mainz winning the Bundesliga and Burnley the Europa league) That's a good idea. I've only managed in the UK at this low level so this wasn't an option for me. Much better than any of our players except maybe Fedorchuk I've got 3 foreign slots and 2 are taken now if this guy signs. none left now. I'm starting to regret signing that Brazilian now

    Some of these players are a lot better than anyone we could hope (at least I think) to sign (no idea why those pictures are different sizes.) It's going to be a rough season. I have money and wage bills but I have no idea where to go. My own scouting (as in me spending the morning checking out MRs myself in foreign teams) came upon a Brazilian in USA who is slightly better than our existing MRs and possibly has potential (i couldn't scout him using my scouts, it was by sight alone) was prepared to join us (few are it seems) but I'm in the dark as to how high to aim, and how high I want to aim, as I have a feeling wage control will come in useful in the near future whenever I look at our finances. As keen readers will know we got a cool 300k in late 2020 in youth payments (I can't remember the term) when a former academy player signed to Shakhtar from Schalke and we've been losing that money rapidly ever since. I think we'll go back into financial crisis in early 2021 so if we can get by with the players we have and build slowly that might be a better strategy than crash/burn. Glad you enjoyed it. Chornomorets got relegated into our division this year. I can expect them to cause us lots of trouble as well

    being asked to job interviews with clubs in the Europa League now. I've been checking out the stats of players in Africa, the US, Brazil, The Balkans, etc but I think I need to bring in one MR at the moment and I'd be happy with our youth team players stepping up,

    As can be imagined for a game with greyed out players we lost. It made no difference though, we are still promoted to the 2nd tier where we will get to scout in Brazil as well as Eastern Europe. Maybe some foreign players will actually want to play here now?

    This might prove to be a problem for me .... Not for Zirka though

    Thinking about it, I don't think we'll definitely go straight up, but we won't be relegation fodder. We beat Premier division Kramatorsk (who were relegated this season) at home 2-0 in the cup with our 2nd XI and me sort of not trying as hard as I could have done so we'd be able to concentrate on the league, which is a good sign. We have a 17-year-old in Fedorchuk who is good enough to play in the premier division already, so who knows? My basic plan is to get rid of those older players on 1-year contracts from the 4th tier who can't cut it anymore and use the increase in wages (the club reduced our transfer amount slightly but increased the wage bill by 10k) to try and get a few good players from the rest of eastern Europe. There's a massive increase in league rep from 3rd to 2nd tier in Ukraine so that might help us attract players from the former USSR and the Balkans who previously wouldn't touch us with a bargepole. I also want to promote more youth players next season. We got a goalkeeper in the 2020 intake who by July 2020 will be good enough to be our number 1 at 16-years old. Whatever happens, I expect the premier division when we eventually get there to be a tough struggle compared to the 2nd tier.

    The New FMCU General Discussion Thread

    Maybe best for me to leave it for now and make sure the Dnipro thread doesn't fall by the wayside, but I would love to read a FMCU thread with gif by gif action on each game if anyone else wants to try it.

    I expect it to be more of a challenge than so far. I'm not sure of the jump in quality between the 2nd tier and 3rd.
