Before the last two World Cup games

Hello dear readers,

This time I was hesitating regarding what to write about. Dresden story continues and has enough interesting events to be shared with you. But at the same we all have passed the semi-final line in Brazil and are thinking about upcoming final and 3rd place game. This time I decided to make accent into real world football with just one question for you from my FM 2014 story.

Kicking skill question

You know this I have talented Brazilian Fabio in Dynamo Dresden as a main goalie.

You will score as many as you can and…


Hello dear readers,

I can’t be silent after yesterday’s incredible World Cup semi-final.

There’s a proverb in Russian: You will score as many as you can and we will score as many as we want. It’s about how Brazilian national team plays football. But yesterday we saw only the first part of this proverb.

It was one of the most amazing and shocking match in football history! If I were Brazilian, I would definitely be crying like that Brazilian girl. Damn, that’s what we love football for!

What caused the defeat

I was sure Brazil wouldn’t win the World Cup this time after watching their first match against Croatians. They didn’t really deserve to be in Top-4 as for me after all played matches and showed performance. They have been performing unsurely. But such 1:7 defeat is too much even for them. Let’s try to figure out what caused so catastrophic result for Brazilians.

1. Brazil wasn’t ready to play Thiago Silva. Head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is absolutely responsible for that. He just didn’t prepared his team to play without leading centre back.

2. Low-quality and nervous goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Again it’s mistake of Scolari to opt the guy who played half of season in Toronto. Julio Cesar is not the best Brazilian goalie in my humble opinion. That’s how I and many fans were thinking before World Cup.

3. In total, Brazil defence was looking like they ate something wrong all together.  Total disgrace. I believe defenders should share some responsibility together with Scolari.

I don’t think Neymar’s presence would influence the result because Brazil was completely awful in defensive moves.

And how do you think? What reasons of defeat would you single out?

Excited to blog for you,

Vitaliy Mokosiy

Skidding at the start

Hello dear readers,

Blog post #815. Season 6 of my Dresden story began with some kind of towing. It’s caused by blending into squad of newcomers and sale of Marko Pavlovski. It seems we are not ready to play stably without Marko just right now.

So as the result, my team unexpectedly lost 4 points making draws with Nurnberg and Dusseldorf

Dynamo Dresden transfers, before season 6

Hello dear readers,

It’s the blog post #814 at True Football Manager blog. Thanks for joining me again. It’s all about transfers before season 6 and expectations.

Season expectations

Season expectations

That is what I claimed. Actually it was the most complicated option to choose and I am sure we can repeat success of getting into Top-3. May be with some portion of luck there will be a chance to struggle with FC Bayern for title. But it’s very unlikely this season in my opinion…

As for Champions League, my initial target is to get into quarter finals. That would be an excellent achievement for Dynamo Dresden debut.
