Yeah my defence was leaking lots of goals so I'm looking to address that this season Johno

That's the plan Tommo.

They did, absolutely dominated it from start to finish Dan.


Preparations and Pre Season

So after last seasons consolidation in mid table, preparations began for the new season here at F.O.K Oktyabrskiy with new incomings and some outgoings in personnel both on the playing side and behind the scenes side.

Transfers in:


So no money was spent or received in these transfers for hopefully they will improve my squad. Bade'lko and Latyshev are both strikers with huge potential and ability for a squad like mine who should provide Kosmach some challenge up top. They also replace Trapashko who departed us after not wanting to sign a new contract. He went up to the top league. Yurut' is my new starting goalkeeper because Cherkas didn't have the best of seasons last year so a new keeper was needed. Hopefully he will do better than Cherkas. The final new incoming is Simonchik who is going to sit just in front of the back four and hopefully will provide some stability there.

Pre Season Results:


Not the best of pre seasons but it gave us some match fitness and the chance to try out a new 4-4-1-1 tactic instead of the favoured 4-2-3-1 I played last season. New players played quite well and we managed to get 2 wins, one against last years champions so that's pleasing.

The promotion odds came in and they rank me as one of the top teams with a price of 2-1 which are very good. Let's hope I can win some people some money for betting on us.


FM19 Careers:

Hyde haven't had the best of luck the past few seasons. I've been to watch them a few times with my home team Northwich Vics. Hopefully you can change their fortunes! Good first season there!
FM19 Careers:


So it's been a decent first season in charge of Smolevichi. I'm settled here in Belarus and I hope to get promoted second time round. A few new signings in key areas and I think we have a realistic chance. The remaining fixtures are listed below:


3 wins, 2 losses and a draw isn't a bad way to end the season however I could have won a few more instead of drawing and losing. This has definitely been a season worth reflecting on positively as I've built a decent squad.


The chairman will probably leave during the Summer due to lack of finances but hopefully someone will come in with a bit of money to help balance it all out. I've kept the wages low so that should always help.

Player of the season for me has definitely been Kosmach due to his invaluable goals in important matches.
FM19 Careers:

I think I've found my feet in Belarus and after this season I think we have a good chance of building something good Dan



Nearing the end of the season and things aren't looking to bad for Smolevichi in Belarus. Not going to get promoted this season but we have the foundations for next season well in place. I've tied up all my players I wish to keep for next season and have identified the areas we need to improve on. The chairman also offered me a new contract:




When you're players are delighted you are staying, you know you are doing alright. In other news, the fans tried to take over the club but failed because they weren't happy with how the talks were progressing. It's a shame but our finances are pretty safe here. In the green and out of the red for once in my career.

The Fixtures:


Another mixed bag in the league but we are stable in the middle of the pack and rising instead of falling so that's always good. In the second round of the cup we lost on penalties to a team 3rd in the 1st division which made me proud and also a little disappointed but we were never going to win it.

The highlight of the past few games is once again against Minsk-2 in which we won 7-3. Huge win and good to see lots of my players on the scoresheet. No major disappointments or low points but we did lose against the top team when we could have pulled back bit of ground on them but this doesn't matter to much.

The league table looks a bit like this:


Sergey Kosmach has once again been the player to watch with 15 goals in 16 games. Hugely impressive performances and a special mention to Gleb Zakahran who came to me complaining he wasn't getting enough first team football, so I said prove it to me and he did. He's now a first team player every week.
FM19 Careers:

Thanks Johno. I'm hoping for more success in Belarus.

I've made sure I have a few youngsters in the squad Tommo. I do like that rule. Keeps the youth coming through

simoncoyne the vodka and borscht business has been bought, and is thriving. You now own 10% due to original idea rights.


Half Way.

So it's half way through my first season in charge of Smolevichi, and things are a lot more steady than my previous three jobs. First of all I've had a steady squad for the majority of the season. I've had sound financial backing and haven't had any problems in that department.

Here are my results for the first 12 games in the league and my first round cup game.


As you can see, a very mixed bag but I'm more than happy with where I am. I feel that I can mount a challenge for the title from here if I get some luck thrown my way and it's about time I get some luck. The highlight of the first half of the season was definitely the 7-1 win against Minsk-2 who apparently hadn't conceded many before that game and I went and slotted 7 past them. The low point was definitely the 5-4 defeat to Gorodeya because I should have won that game.

An inspired few games for Kosmach who has definitely been on of my better players made him instantly my main striker. It's a shame that he got injured for 7 weeks however. I also have a set piece specialist in Tranchinskiy who seems to score most of his goals from free kicks.

This left the league table looking like this:


I'm in 7th with 18 points which is satisfactory. I'm currently 13 points behind the league leaders but they will slip up sooner of later. (I hope)

In other news. The chairman want's to sell the club so that's affecting my players apparently. let's hope that gets sorted out quickly enough and that a rich oil tycoon likes the look of living in Belarus and seeing the rise of a small time club.

FM19 Careers:

I know Dan, I seem to have an affinity with struggling teams doomed to relegation battles. This will change though.


Next Stop: Belarus


So it didn't take long to realise that Fruit and Veg just wasn't good enough for the Scots, so Belarus was the next obvious choice. Some of you lesser football fans will have no clue who Smolevichi are, and for you people I present the information.


Playing in the Persha Liga, the board want me to challenge for promotion and as I've never managed here before, or know anything about the league, I will do my upmost to do this. I think with my previous record, I'm definitely the one who can achieve this
FM19 Careers:




I played the 5 games, drew the first one, lost the second one, won the third one, won the fourth one and then lost the 5th one, so a grand total of 7 points. I needed 8 points to keep my job.

End of the day I had lost my love for East Stirlingshire so I'm quite happy to be out of the job, but I wish I had done it in better style.

I'm going to hopefully find a job somewhere but let's be honest, who is going to want to hire me?

I will continue and improve.
FM19 Careers:

Well you;ve started off really well, great to see. Hopefully you can keep it going. Be a tough ask but you're more than capable.
FM19 Careers:




3 more wins, a lot of losses and a few draws combined altogether is not good form. Bottom of the league, and in trouble. This happened.


I have 5 games, to get 8 points. Usually that's possible, but with my form and team I'm doubting it, 5 games to save my career.
FM19 Careers:

Thanks Johno! You never know but it'll be a tough ask.

Wilc94 I'm hoping it will be.

Cheers Tommo. A good base to work from.

Simoncoyne Elgin went down after a playoff with Brora, I've drawn them in the Scottish Cup 2nd Round. Grudge match.


An awful start.



So it all started with a great win in the Challenge Cup where I got a great win over East Fife. 3-2 was good enough and into the 2nd round we went.

A hard draw against Championship Hearts awaited me in the 1st round of the League Cup and we got absolutely hammered as I expected but a good learning curve for the players.

The first league game was at home against Forfar. I didn't expect to come away with a win but I'm really proud of the lads for digging deep. We were a bit fortunate but a great start for Jay Doyle and a great start for us.

The second round of the cup just wasn't meant to be as we got battered by Berwick. We were so poor I have nothing else to say.

4 games in the league followed without a single point being won. I'm so disappointed as I thought we were starting to build a team. Especially as we had beaten East Fife previously, I thought we could have done better in that game specifically.

A couple of games to finish the month, secondly against newly promoted Brora where we gained a point which was pleasing since they are sitting near the top of the table which is a good achievement for them.

This left the table looking like this:


I'm 2nd bottom with a total of 4 points. An awful start quite frankly but at least we aren't bottom. Tbh this is the highest I've ever been int he league in one of these updates Let's hope for a turn in form and some points on the board.
FM19 Careers:

This should be interesting! Good luck keeping your best players! Up the Colomiers
FM19 Careers:

I don't think I've ever seen a gap closer than that Dan. So glad that I managed to stay up. Time to build a team capable of winning the league.

Thanks Picchioni. A close escape.

bmg033 it was such a nail biter. We came through though so thats the important news.




Only the four pre season friendlies as we have cup competitions coming up before the season starts, and I'm pleased with how they went. 4 wins out of 4 and some good performances from my new lads. Most of pre season was spent getting in some new lads to bolster the squad which was left depleted after a lot of my players were poached or left on a free due to not being good enough.


My transfers for the season are as followed:

Bryan Wharton will play at the centre of defence and should provide more than adequate cover for the recently departed Dunsmore who was my main CB last season. I tried to sign him back but he chose Dunfermline.

I got Gary Wilson in on loan to be a striker partner for McKenna and hopefully they will provide some goals to help us mount a title challenge.

Next up. The first few months of the season.
FM19 Careers:

Well done on promotion! You dominated the season so deserve to go up. Another trophy to add to the collection.
FM19 Careers:

Well thats always good news Dan, it's about time to start on the badges to hopefully improve my teams luck and results.




East Fife (A)
A trip to East Fife was first on the cards and what an epic game it turned out to be. East Fife took a 3-0 lead which we pegged back to 3-1 then 4-1 then 4-4-2 then 5-2 going into the last 10 minutes. How we managed to get this back to 5-5 is beyond me but my players showed terrific spirit and fought to the end. 90+4 hit and my super sub Tahin came on to score the equaliser. 1 point gained. Elgin City lost 3-1 to Berwick, so the gap was down to 3 points.

Stranraer (H)
An important home game for us against a decent Stranraer team. A hugely important win especially because Elgin decided to beat East Fife in their game earlier in the day so we needed all 3 points to stay in contention of staying in the league. This game looked quite comfortable but for me it wasn't. I never believed we could close this game out but the lads did me proud. The gap remained at 3 points.

Elgin City (H)
So the important game came along. We took the lead which was too good to be true. Elgin then replied with 2 goals and I thought the miracle escape was over, but then we hit back and equalised in the 74 minute. This seemed to provide a momentum boost and a confidence boost to my team and we managed to grab what turned out to be the winner on the 80th minute which led to a nervous nail biting finish with Elgin City having a goal disallowed in the 89th minute. PHEW.

This led to the league table looking like this:



FM19 Careers:

Cheers Tommo. I'm happy with the start I had.

Simoncoyne lets hope it doesn't come to that playoff eh?

I really have got the pressure on Dan but I never choose an easy life as you can see. It will come good eventually.


3 Games to Go.


So last time out we were unbeaten going into the last quarter of the season, but that came to an abrupt halt as losing became a little habit of ours.


Two Losses back to back against Stranraer and Elgin City was hard to take especially because Elgin are battling with us to stay up so to lose 3 points on them could be the deciding factor. We were never really in the Stranraer game but we should have got something out of the Elgin match.

4 points out of the next 2 games is something to be proud of particularly against Montrose and Stirling. We played really well in these two game but true to form our results are so up and down and we need some stability in the ranks to help us rise up the table.

10 goals conceded in the next 2 against Annan and Albion Rovers concerned me. We need to sure up our defence, which is injury riddled but still should';t be conceding that many goals. Shame to lose both games here but onto the next match I always say.

Another 4 out of 6 available against Berwick and Peterhead. Seem to be able to cope against the top teams better than the bottom teams for some reason. Should have won against Peterhead as well but I won't be greedy, it's another point.

So with 3 games left in the season we lie 4 points behind Elgin City and we play against them in the last match of the season so if we can get to a 3 point margin then we might be able to perform the miracle escape.


Some other good news is that the board have decided to fund my coaching badges after asking for a few months.

FM19 Careers:

Just a few awards to update you on.

Manager of the Month for an unbeaten month.

Jay Doyle has truly been my star player scoring 4 goals this month. Great to see him win an award.
FM19 Careers:

Surprisingly Tommo. I've never managed in Scotland before but I intend to enjoy it here.


An Unbeaten Start


So I've been at East Stirlingshire for over a month now and I'm enjoying my best run as a manager (That's not hard but I'm not complaining). I came in to a team that had lost 7 on the bounce and were rock bottom of the league by 7 points.

Stirling (H)
My first game in charge and against a very decent outfit. I put out what I thought to be my strongest team after being at the club for 2 days and they duly delivered their first point for 7 games. A hugely impressive performance but couldn't get the win.

Montrose (A)
Another draw and another point to the tally. I had Lewis Coult back from injury and he delivered with a goal to tie things up. It's a shame we couldn't go on to score the winner, but another point will do.

Stranraer (H)
My first win at the club came against front runners Stranraer. A double from my new striker Jay Doyle was great to see as he's trying to force his way into the starting line up. A massive 3 points for us as it's claws us closer to the safety zone.

Annan (H)
Another game, another point. I will gladly take them and keep the points ticking over. However I was very disappointed not to take all 3. We were 2-0 and cruising but then fell asleep and let 2 late goals in.

Albion Rovers (A)
David McKenna showed everyone why he is the clubs top goalscorer. What a great performance and another 3 to the total. We are on a roll. 5 games unbeaten.

Peterhead (A)
A trip to the league leaders and a game that I thought that we might lose. The players battled hard and duly deserved their point. Leading at one point, but couldn't hang on for long enough.

Berwick (A)
A 3-3 draw. An interesting and great game for the spectators. Another point and I'm happy.

So after all that, a look at the table and we are still bottom of the pile, but only by 4 points, and I'm pretty confident that we can escape the drop.


FM19 Careers:

I've been pretty unlucky in my two attempts at keeping them in the league. I always find it hard with amateur teams as clubs can just come in and steal your best players. Hopefully all my seasons won't end in relegations eh Dan.

Thanks Shedender, I hope your luck will come true this time.

The Fruit and Veg stall is moving! It was about time to move anyway after a disappointing few years in Denmark. But I will be back Simoncoyne


Tonge Moves Country


I've moved to Scotland as I'm sure they need Fruit and Veg there. Surely they can't just survive on a liquid diet of alcohol and more alcohol. I sent my CV out to a few clubs to see what was available and one club came back to me.


That's right East Stirlingshire want me as their new manager for some reason. 2 seasons in charge, 2 relegations and they sit bottom of the league. What in gods name have they hired me for.

Anyway you can view the club information here:


My time at the club begins with them sitting pretty at the bottom of the league with 19 games remaining. You can see the table below:


So the tough task begins all over again. Time to get some stability into the team and provide some happy memories for once.

«This comment has been edited»
FM19 Careers:

Looking good in the league! Hopefully you can see the last 2 games in the cup through and qualify in that second position.
FM19 Careers:

Dan it was just too much of an ask, as I've gone down again with one game to go. Disappointing to say the least.


Another Relegation

So it's mathematically confirmed that I am now relegation for the 2nd season in a row. Very disappointing as my team was starting to come together.

Here are my fixtures for the last 5 games and the final league table.

Avedøre (A)

B93 (H)

Holbæk (H)

Herlev (H)

B1908 (A)

League Table:


So it's back to the drawing board, and selling my fruit and veg which is fast becoming my most consistent job. I think it'll be tough to find a job that has any promise of trophies in the near future.

FM19 Careers:

GVI March On


FC Rosklide (H)
A hugely important win at home. Starting to build my own fortress here. I was just about to settle for a draw but then up popped Fritze who scored a screamer in the last few seconds! 3 points.

Fremad Amager (H)
So much for the fortress, well if it was a fortress, it's now a ruin after a demolishing against a team battling it out near the top. Never turned up and disappointing from the whole team.

Hvidovre IF (A)
A massive win against a team I wasn't expected to get anything against. Hugely impressive performance and we are starting to grind some results out now. I'm pretty sure thats our first points away from home this year under my control.

Vanløse IF (A)
Back to losing ways, can't seem to get anything two games in a row, but never mind. Some good performances on show but we needed a draw at least against a fellow relegation rival.

FC Helsingør (H)
Should't have even bothered turning up. Poor game, poor performances, poor results.

Another 3 points on the road, and a massive 3 points at that. The team below me and bottom of the league. Talk about a last second goal as well. Hugely important in the relegation race.

Frem (H)
From are a team who are battling for promotion so to come away with a point is massive. A point gained on the team above and we should have and could have won the game.

After these games, the league looks like this: with 5 games to go it's looking like a close nail biting finish and sprint to the line.


FM19 Careers:

Awesome start to the season, lets hope it long continues!
FM19 Careers:

Cheers Johno, I'm hoping so, then I can build on that next season.

Thanks George14brfc, I'm finding it hard in this league, with amateur contracts.

SimonCoyne, yeah Middlefart were tricky customers on a windy day

Thanks Dan, I will catch you up eventually


The First 5 Games.


Holbæk (A)
Not the best of starts here, an absolute pummelling from a much better team. I tried a new formation and tactic and it didn't really work out. Not much more to be said.

Herlev (A)
A much better performance, again away from home, but just couldn't grab a point which would have been a fair result. The tactic started to show signs of working.

Brønshøj (A)
The 3rd game in a row away from home, and again another loss. Never really got going but we made it to the half at 0-0 which I suppose is something. Just need to learn how to keep them out for longer.

NB Bornholm (H)
So my first home game in charge, and we managed to grab the 1st points of my career at GVI. A massive 3 points against the team directly below me in the table to give us some air. Clung on once we scored but we ground it out.

Svenbølle (A)
Back to the awful away form, a huge loss against a fairly poor team. They are near me in the table and I'm disappointed to have lost in that manner.

So after all that, the league table looked something like this: 3 points off safety and 3rd bottom. Hopefully we can keep the home form going and not play as many away games.

FM19 Careers:

Great start to the season there mate! Keep it up!
FM19 Careers:

I'm Back in the Game!



So after a few months of travelling around Denmark with my Fruit and Veg stall trying to make as much money as I could, I got a call from the Chairman of a GVI or also known as: Gentofte-Vangede Idrætsforening but I will just call them GVI. I was to become their new manager with immediate effect. You can view the club information below:




So with 13 games gone in the sister league to my previous team and a fair few games left to play I sit 3rd bottom of the league with a huge 12 points. I am aiming to battle relegation once again. Lets hope this happens this time.


Next up will be my first games in charge and a team report once I find an assistant manager to judge their potential.
FM19 Careers:

Nice profit from the Reo-Coker trade! Awesome news to have a new stadium. Onwards and Upwards.
FM19 Careers:

Nice profit from the Reo-Coker trade! Awesome news to have a new stadium. Onwards and Upwards.
FM19 Careers:

Tommo You would have thought so but then a bad run of form started.

Kolding IF are down.


So first bit of bad news, this happened after a run of 6 straight defeats in the league in which we have had no pleasing performances.


So then I decided that before I got sacked, I would go out on my own terms. I resigned as Manager of Kolding IF.


Now to decided whether to stay in Denmark and battle on with the lower leagues or move onto a new country and challenge.
FM19 Careers:

picchioni I simply found it on google images, I think there is a program that allows you to make one but I couldn't find that.

Thanks Dan, I'm enjoying Denmark, however there seems to be about 4 teams from my town, which provides a split fanbase

simoncoyne I thought that when I first saw them, I was leaving it up to someone to point it out to the rest haha!


1st Season Update


So i've played my first 9 games after the mid season break and you can see the results below. I'm quite happy with how we've done considering we are meant to be going down and clearly don't have much quality but some of the performances have been quite pleasing. Still we could do with some more wins but that will come with time.

Ringkøbing IF

FC Sydvest




Bra brand IF


Kolding BK


And after these results, with 6 games to go, we have moved up a place and are still in a captivating relegation battle with 6 teams. This should be an interesting end to a season.


FM19 Careers:

Up Until Winter Break.

November 2014


Jammerbugt FC (A)
So this wasn't the ideal way to start, with all the goals in the first half my team did well to not concede any more in the second half but I am not at all happy with the result or the performance. I will perhaps put it down to the fact that the team ar having to learn a new tactic and formation. Jammerbugt were 3rd in the league so it's no surprise we lost but I wish we had performed better.


FC Svendborg (H)
A much better performance and a terrific comeback from the lads. Again Svendborg are in the top 5 in the league so to grab a draw and a well earned point is pleasing. The performance pleased me with the team starting to learn the tactic.

The league table hasn't really changed much with us still 2nd bottom of the league having gained only a single point. We are still only a single win from safety so I'm hoping to escape the relegation zone as soon as I can.
