With such amazing jumping and finishing, I don't think his heading is too big of a problem. If I can get his pace and composure up he'll be a monster.

I actually was on the verge of signing him with Gladbach, so that he'd come to us now is really amazing. His story is that he transferred to Kuban in the Russian Premier League from CFR Cluj in Romania, and had a dreadful season in which the club was relegated. He was unhappy and now in the same division as us and as soon as he popped up on the interested players list I had a bid in for him.

In FM11 Lacina Traore would sign for Barcelona in the first season in many of my games.

edit: He transferred to Kuban in real life and is managed by former Chelsea and Romania NT player Dan Petrescu (aka Mulder).

How many sides in top division?? That'd be no fun with Europe games on top!?

There's only 16 in the Premier Division, so that's 8 fewer games, which is probably just enough to make it bearable. The cup also seems to be fairly short and mostly contested before the season starts. Tough start to the league for us, but we seem to have found our footing; we've had a lot of injuries, the most stunning of which left us with a 17 year old keeper in net for 7 games. However, we actually won 5/7 of those games, so it didn't end up being all that important. Still, I think you can pin almost all of that 1-3 loss to Khimki on the kid. Oh, and his debut was the 2-2 draw, where he got lobbed from about 40 yards in the 88th minute.



Check out those dates. Which puts us here.



Best player so far has actually been Mier the Uruguayan, although in limited games because of injuries. After him it's Traore and Mputu.

EDIT: At this point most teams in the Russian Premier League have played 9 games. That compares to 6 in England, 7 in Germany, and 11 in the notoriously early starting Ukrainian Premier League.

Promotion. We're really clicking though, with the players healthy we've been on a real tear; Mputu, Traore, and Mier missed some or all of those first 5 games, not to mention our best defender Gadjibikov who is out until next year, and our #1 keeper.

It's great to finally see this up and running!

I'll also have time to play in the next couple of weeks (after that it will be difficult again), so I'd love to go next if that's all right.

If Juventino goes next and does his in time I'd like to be in the mix for going next since it will probably sync with my time off for Christmas holidays.

My question is: what happens if I don't get promoted and get sacked?

Because of youth team callups I had to go on vacation for one match as I didn't have a single registered Russian U-21 player to put in the side. We won 3-0. Looked at the formation wondering what position my assistant played a random grey player that I couldn't find: didn't see one. He just played the regular starting XI without a Russian U-21 player. Whatever.

Add a new manager? If our North Korean gets sacked it will probably push him over the edge and he'll commit suicide, so probably another name. I still like Uli Kunkel, the Autobahn band member/ porn star/ nihilist (from The Big Lebowski).

Yeah I like that idea. Maybe just everyone isn't meant to be as successful as Pablo Castro, if one manager fails, someone else gets a crack.

Forgot to post this, good luck when you guys get to the Premier League
