Braganca squad

Dear blog readers,

A short story update today. Just want to share full set of Braganca players profiles:

Pay attention two centre backs Couto and Jaka were signed for free during transfer window. I didn't manage to perform any other transfers just because of inability to sell a couple of existing players or even release them using mutual contract termination.

Board doesn't expect too much from me as you can see from the picture below. But I have ambitions and want to do my best creating working tactics that can bring us to domination in the low level league. Portuguese National Championship should become an interesting and exciting race for promotion!

That's all for now. Stay tuned. Next time I will be ready to tell about my first matches of Dream Job story.

Excited to blog for you,
Vitaliy Mokosiy

About lowest Portuguese league rules

Blog post 859

Hello dear readers,

Today I would like to describe what awaits me as Braganca manager in the first season in Portugal. The third level league is called Portuguese National Championship (PNC). I know the blog is visited by many readers from Portugal, however there are more people from other countries. And I suspect most of you don't know how much PNC is complicated and entertaining as it was with me till this weekend.

Welcome to Braganca!

Blog post 858

Hello dear blog readers,

I want to tell you my first club was found quite quickly. Those clubs that were available at the start rejected me, even Girknyk Sport from Ukrainian First League. Though I understand the league has the 62nd reputation in European rating.

All of sudden vacancy in the lowest league of Portugal was opened. I applied to Braganca and received the job promising to win promotion in the very first year. A risky step but I don't afraid challenges and this time don't afraid to be sacked. Anyway it's a bottom level and I'll be able to find another team if things go bad :)

Dream Job story is starting up

Blog post 857

Hello dear readers,
Yesterday's night I had an opportunity to start my Dream Job story. So I am ready to account for my first actions and here are the first screenshots made in FM 2015.

Nations selection

I decided to stick with nearly the same nations as I always opt in every new Football Manager with a little exception: Russia is not included. I just don't want to have an option to manage Russian clubs.

Dream Job story. Targets and expectations

From unemployed to Arsenal manager is a radically new concept of Football Manager story for me. Every new game in FM or CM was starting with club selection. I never played starting in unemployed mode as totally unknown rookie head coach.

So here are some conditions and principles for Dream Job story:

  • Start as unemployed manager.
  • Find the first job in any of playable leagues.
  • Do not stick with one team. Change jobs to reach Arsenal manager position as fast as possible.
  • Be pragmatic and result-oriented manager. 
  • Don't experiment much till becoming Arsenal manager.
  • Make Arsenal a top club in the world!

This time there will not be any kind of artificial restrictions like 'sign players of home-biased nationality' or 'use rigid tactics'.
My aim is to get into Arsenal by any cost as quick as possible.
I understand I should be a very lucky to achieve the set target. Just because it's not enough to improve my manager reputation up to Premier League level. I should wait a moment when Arsenal head coach will leave the club or get fired.

Anyway, absolutely unpredictable and exciting story is guaranteed for me and you!

Excited to blog for you,
Vitaliy Mokosiy
