Continuing Our Tradition
Squad | Results 1 | Results 2 | League Table
The squad is of high calibre and has gelled well, I have hardly changed the squad over the course of the last 6 months to try to make us consistent. I would think it is working, hardly won every game except for 4, we are consistently win! Our first defeat came late in February when the Champions League draw handed us Chelsea, the team we faced last year in the final of the Champions League. To say that I was not impressed might be a slight understatement! We fought well be on the night, away, we couldn't handle them. However we did manage to key away goal which might end up seeing us through!
Domestically it has been a complete white wash, we have dropped points once.

We are nearly breaking even this year before the Champions League TV money! Financially we are having a wonderful season which stands the club in good stead!

Not a bad start to my career as Spain manager, a win over Brazil and a thrilling 3-3 draw with Holland which we were ahead for most of! We part of my first few games in charge. I am using the flair and attacking ability of the Spanish side to its full potential and it seems to be working well. I just wish we could have a good regen keeper who can take over from De Gea soon.
Impressively dominating Russia.
Thanks delta too bad that 2 games later I lost
Pretty amazing in the league dude.
very impressive in the league
Thanks AcidBurn and acidmonkey! Its not going as well now

Bloody hell, you're dominating the league! Are you ever going to move on?
Yes Scarman this is my last season in charge of the Blue White Navys, my contract is up and I won't be renewing it. So get ready for some new adventures!
Flamers, I hear that you are doing YouTube videos of Minecraft now...... *blatant plug* ........ I've heard that you are doing Sea of Flame II, which is an awesome map...... *very blatant plug* ........ looking forward to seeing how you get on dude........ *extremely blatant plug*
Seriously, any of you who are fans of Minecraft, check it out:
Nice start with Spain .

Thanks SRL88! It could be better, we haven't quite played to our potential.
Nearly a 500% pay rise but I have made my mind up I am leaving at the end of the season...
A good team that I am proud to leave behind, it pains me to do so but I feel that it's only fair that the next manager has the best chance possible to go on and succeed with Zenit like I have.

What a campaign! A near prefer season in one of the worlds richest and high quality leagues. With two losses all season I can't complain at the performances that the squad put in. Even in games where the first team have been injured, suspended or exhausted the backups have stepped up and taken the strain and done a good job. I think we might have set a record for the fewest amount of goals conceded in a season as well, 8 in 30 games, fewer than 1 in 3.
In the Russian Cup we played well, not having a great deal of opposition until the final where we met with out great rivals CSKA Moscow, 14 days earlier they had seen us off 1-0 in Moscow on the last day of the season. However with my main striker back from injury and a cup to play for we turned on the style, a cracking 5-2 final saw us win the domestic treble again and 5 trophies this season!
Champions League Results | European Super Cup | World Club Cup Results
After last seasons successful campaign I was sure of some good progress this season. When the groups where drawn I was confident that we could make it through, Ajax, Stuttgart and Standard. Only Stuttgart posed any threat to us but a home win and away draw was easily enough. Going into the 1st Round draw I was expecting someone like Galatasary. But no. Chelsea. The team that we had to beat last year in the final to win the Champions League. Simply we crumbled, our home performance was shocking, there is no other way to put it. Normally our home record is incredible, I think I have only lost 10 times or so at home in my whole time at Zenit in all competitions! But it wasn't to be. However for consolidation we did manage to win the European Super Cup and the World Club Cup.
Nothing major in transfers really, I am not a big spender and probably never will be. The board are chuffed with me even if I won't sign a new contract!
A comfortable league win .
SRL88 Its the highest points total for a 12 month season
Nicely done. CSKA weren't chumps either. Off you go then.
Thanks delta! Now off into the job market I go... German 3rd tier sounds good
You lost twice and conceded a goal once every 4 matches(roughly) not sure anyone will want to employ you with that kind of form.
Good luck dude.
How about trying to turn a minnow from the Polish second tier into a national powerhouse? It's a much bigger challenge than the major Eastern European leagues (or elite Western European leagues) because of the lack of prize money, tiny budgets and disparity between the strength of the top few clubs and the small minnows.
I don't know why you added Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia if the aim was to recreate the USSR. None of those nations ever fell under the rule of Stalin, nor are they even described as 'Eastern' nations.
That aside, I enjoyed reading through your career and will be following from here on.
Well there was Czechoslovakia.
Acidburn I know, I almost bottled it and nearly got relegated with that form
Niebiescy I will, in Germany. There are a couple of clubs I'd love to manage who are hoovering around the 2nd/3rd tier of German football and I'm sure they'd accept the Spain manager
Thomasmc135 as delta says Czechoslovakia. Also they may not have been USSR but they certainly sympathised with Stalin and the USSR and I wanted to manage there (The last reason might be the main one.... )
They were known as the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (think that's how you say it in English as I only know the name in Czech) which meant they were basically a puppet Soviet regime. In Czech the name is Československé Socialistické Republiky. It wasn't technically part of the U.S.S.R, but it was essentially the same people who had the ultimate control over the country. The Soviets pulled the strings and controlled the people in the same way as elsewhere.

Not a bad way to leave the Motherland!
Thanks Ak22, I try my hardest

Plunging Into The Depths...
Chemnitz a recent history: After being suck in the 3. Bundesliga since the start of the game Chemnitz managed promotion to the second tier of German football in 2017, however they have never finished higher than 7th. They have been stuck in the mid table for several years and with the poor start to this season they have brought in Spains World Class manager Matthew Beale to try and reform the club and challenge for promotion.
Squad | Results | League Table
Most of the real stars of the squad are foreign, but as this isn't Russia it doesn't matter too much! When I arrived there was no assistant and only one scout so these are my assistants day one views upon the players and could very well change in the future. From what I can work out the old manager was a bit unlucky, often losing by a single goal. I will try and instil in them my defensive style that I played at Zenit and try and drag them up, kicking and screaming, from the bottom of the table.
The previous manager was a bit busy in the transfer market! I will be shopping around for some deals in January to strengthen a side while and in very real danger of relegation. I once again join a club spending vast amounts more than they earn as well.
Been waiting for an update on this, good luck dude.
Its been several months I have had to sim to find a job that I would even consider taking, then 2 come at once
Anzhi is too similar to Zenit in terms of funding and competition. Chemnitz looks like a more challenging job and also offers you more in the long-term. I'd go for them if Germany is your goal.
But with Anji I get unlimited money But I wanted to move to Germany and thats why I did
You made the right choice. Unlimited money in a small league is fun for about 2 seasons and then it becomes dull. Chemnitz could be a great challenge for 5+ years if you want to stay there that long.
Chemnitz will be my club until I win a Champions League title with them It would have been fun trying to beat my Zenit squad (especially as the wonderkid was sold to Real for £20m!)
Posted April 20, 2012
Chemnitz should be fun.
You're crazy in my opinion. I would have picked Anji any day. But then I've never been at a club with anything like unlimited money, despite playing the series since 00/01. I always start at the bottom (and edit my rep to '1') but never have the patience to play more than about 8 seasons. The biggest club I ever got to was Fiorentina!
I know I may be ToffeeViola but its more fun being the little guy. After last tears mammoth save with KFK this is rather short currently and I want some time to build a club.
Posted April 21, 2012
Somewhat surprised you didnt take the Anji job but I can understand any reason why you didnt. Best of luck with your new adventure though .
Good luck with Chemnitz! Always good to have a change after dominating a league for so long
Anji would have been fun though
I know Anji would have been fun but this is for keeps SRL88 and Scarman
The Beginning of an Era
Well I haven't been here long but from what I can grasp so far we are under performing. I have managed to bring in a goal keeper an a free who is by far the best player in the side and a left winger so we can play wide which I prefer. We have climbed 2 places so far since I have joined and we also were leading Dortmund going into half time in our friendly! Overall I am pretty happy with the side, a couple of good signings in the summer and we can push forward.
The main news is that one of the clubs better players has been sold. For a club that is in a bit of financial trouble £200 000 is a lot of money for a player who was leaving on a free in 6 months time. Other than that I am trying to trim the squad down a little and get it on budget while improving the quality.
Although we haven't lost we do seem to have a habit of drawing games, often having to come from behind. I have been playing with the tactic and the latest version debuted in the Germany game. I think it would be safe to say that it worked. 6-1 is an impressive score.

Bringing Back Efficiency
The squad isn't too bad, it isn't massive but it seems big enough and good enough to do what I want it to. A few more central midfielders wouldn't go a miss though.
Results 1 | Results 2 | League Table | League Position Graph
Not a bad start to my campaign, I have a nearly 60% win record which isn't too shabby if I do say so myself. I took over the club with the real threat of relegation and we ended up with 2 games left still with a mathematical chance of getting a playoff spot! I am happy with how the team is now playing and we should do well next season.
In and out, we have been busy in both aspects of the transfer market this season. I am trying to slash the wage budget by getting rid of dead wood, which there seems to be a lot of. We aren't perfect financially but the great end to the season has greatly helped us.
Board Expectations | Media Expectations
I have been a bit ambitious, I have chosen to not go with the easiest option but to push for promotion this season which is something that I feel well can do.
The squad isstill strinking but I have a new transfers ready and waiting to hopefully give us a little more depth.
No transfers thus far and still keeping an even keel on the finances.
Breaking Under The Pressure
Well, for one of the best teams in the world we played SHOCKINGLY in that Turkey match. We conceded a very soft goal and then a wonder goal in the 118th minute sent us out. We were dreadful. However other than that match we have been playing imperiously!
I think you can probably get that promotion.
Posted April 27, 2012
Terribly unlucky to go out to Turkey, but even the best have their off days. Very impressed with your progress at Chemnitz after such a short time, especially all the improvements you've been able to make to your facilities considering you've still got 40 million in the bank. Based on your form towards the end of last season promotion is definitely a chance, wouldn't surprise me if you had it sorted with a few games to spare either
Good luck with your season aims fella.
HAHAHAH I just worked that out arinceo, not to self, proof read posts better. Its fixed now, I wish I had £40m....
Thanks deltablue and SRL88, I hope I can get promoted as the club really needs the extra money. I don't want to get promoted too soon though and end up being a yo-yo club...
Posted June 5, 2012
I am sorry to all of those who might have bet upon my death. Sadly you have lost out. I am in fact alive but my exams and other things in my life have been prioritised over FM therefore I chose to play on without writing an update. Sorry <3
Posted June 6, 2012
Real life is more important than FM.
