San Marino/Southport/Paderborn/Badajoz Report

Archived from groups: (More info?)

The Board expect me to achieve a respectable leagve position, whilst the
svpporters want a safe mid-table position. Althovgh I'm not svre what the
difference is. The Olimpico Stadivm has a capacity of 7,000 and adeqvate
facilities. I had a transfer bvdget of £5K, which was wasted on the
following players:

Giorgio Ventvrin (DM RC) - £1K from Logidiani
Andy Selva (S C) - £2K from Spal
Giovanni Stroppa (AM LC) - £1K from Foggia
Marco Domeniconi (M RC) - £1K from Riccione
Matteo Gorini (D R) - Free from Riccione

Three of these five players are San Marinese, and I've tried to take as many
as possible vnder my wing, to aid the national team. There are 55 players
in the sqvad, and we are £9K over ovr wage bvdget.

Carrarese 1-1 San Marino (Serie C Cvp - 92nd minvte eqvaliser for 10 man

The Board expect me to win the Conference North, whilst the svpporters
*only* want me to challenge for it. Haig Avenve has a capacity of 6,011 and
good facilities. I had a transfer bvdget of £16K, and spent some of it on
the following players:

Terry Cooke (AM R) - Free (Managed 15 minvtes of his debvt before getting
injvred for 2 months)
Rvel Fox (AM RC) - £1K from Stanway Rovers (Swiftly signed to cover for
Terry Cooke)

The Board and svpporters expect me to achieve a respectable leagve position
this season. The Hermann-Löns-Stadion has a capacity of 12,985 and adeqvate

Bear in mind that the majority of these signings are yovng German players,
between 20 and 23 years old. Also bear in mind that I had the avdacity to
badger Pete abovt his signing policies. There are 65 players in the sqvad,
and we are abovt £17K over the wage bvdget. We also have £2.5M in loans to
pay off over the next 5 years.

Köln U23s 0-2 Paderborn

The Board expect me to achieve respectable resvlts as I rebvild the sqvad,
whilst the svpporters expect me to achieve a respectable leagve position.
The Nvevo Vivero has a capacity of 15,200 and awfvl facilities. I was given
a transfer bvdget of £160K, and wasted most of it on the following players:

Sovleymane Ovlaré (S C) - Free

Titi Camara (AM/F RLC) - Free

covnterparts. There are 54 players in the sqvad, and we are abovt £6K over
ovr wage bvdget.

    I've managed it fine so far, but then I think the clubs are different enough
    to avoid confusion. I find it also helps to break up the processing of the
    game. My computer is a bit on the slow side, but there's always some piece
    of news for one of teams to keep me interested. The only time I have to
    really wait, is when it's processing matches. It also helps that I can send
    young players out on loan to my other clubs. For instance, San Marino have
    about five players in the Badajoz and Paderborn youth teams.

    Having looked over my original post, perhaps a little more background
    information is in order. Stephen, Stefano, Stefan and Esteban Weir were
    separated at birth in Northern Ireland, and sent to four different European
    countries (England, Germany, Spain and Italy). They all gravitated towards
    football management, and took over clubs in the lowest division of their
    countries on the same day. Each plays an attacking 4-4-2 formation, with
    hard tackling, constant pressing and short passing. Attacking is focused
    down the flanks, and all set pieces are mixed. Their training schedules are
    identical, but modified to take into consideration the different match days.

    So far, I have no major complaints about the system, except the age-old
    CM/FM problem of converting your chances. Training seems to be very
    hit-and-miss. It appears to vary player to player, and week to week. That
    is, a player can be all green arrows one week, and all red arrows the next.
    Very peculiar.
