Pogon Announce Fixture List For Winter Break

Pogon's friendly list for the 2014/15 winter break has been released on the Szczecin club's official website. The in-form team will travel to Bulgaria to play Ludogorets on the 15th of January. Then they embark on a 2 week tour of Germany, beginning on the 17th of January and ending on the 28th. Pogon will play Hertha BSC, Braunschweig, St Pauli and Dresden during the tour.

On the 31st of January, they will travel south, to the Czech Republic to play Blsany before wrapping up the friendlies against 2 Polish First Division sides in Bytovia and Flota.

The friendlies are a good challenge, and a way to test Lodovico's skills against some tougher opponents in Hertha BSC and Dresden. The tour will also be a good way to bring some revenue in and bolster the club's finances. Pogon will eagerly await their first friendly against Ludogorets in 11 days time.
Looks like some interesting friendlies there, hopefully you can get teh match fitness up and some results before the season break finishes
I feel the change has done you good Degz, keep up the great work!
Good idea to set up those matches, keep fitness up etc. :D
Xander Yeah definitely!

Griffo Thanks :)

Walter You know it! :)

Pogon Lose Key Man

Pogon Szczecin will be lamenting the loss of target man and star player Marcin Robak, as the Polish international strained his knee in the friendly loss to Braunschweig. Robak injured his knee when he was tackled by a Braunschweig defender. Robak is estimated to miss 2 to 3 months of football, effectively ruling him out of the majority of Pogon's remaining league season.

Marcin Robak was anticipating a turn to outwit the defender, but as the ball rolled to him, the defender lunged forward and knocked the ball out of his grasp. Robak's hurried attempt to run free was impeded by the defener's leg and he twisted his knee whilst tripping over it.

The injury was inflicted in the 91st minute, with the game virtually over. Robak was eventually replaced by goalkeeper Radoslaw Janukiewicz as the game had nothing left, and Pogon will be wondering what they had done to deserve the loss of such a great player at the very end of a game.

Pogon are set to continue their tour of Germany with matches against St Pauli and Dresden to come. The seemingly obvious replacement for Robak at this stage is Grzegorz Kuswik.
Massive loss... good luck coping!

Lodovico Secures Short Term Spearhead

Today the official Pogon Szczecin website confirmed the signing of Australian striker Dylan Macallister on a 6 month contract. Macallister has been brought in as a short term replacement for injured Marcin Robak.

This signings continues manager Sean-Paul Lodovico's tradition of signing short term backups to replace injuries rather than use an option at the club. Macallister follows in the footsteps of the likes of Angelo Charisteas and Alex Henshall and some believe Charisteas was even being considered as a backup rather than Macallister.

Dylan Macallister was born in 1982 in Sydney, Australia. He is a target man, much like Robak, with amazing heading skills as well as a brilliant knack for penalty kicks. A journeyman striker, he has played in multiple places over Europe, Asia and Australia and has 1 cap to his name for the latter.

With Robak injured for just 2-3 months, Macallister will likely be used swapping with Kuswik up front. Although not the most refined striker, Macallister is simply an influence in the box. Pogon coaches suggest that Kuswik may start games as the more technical player whilst Macallister will come on late to swing the match with his influence.

Macallister will have the rest of the winter break to prove himself before Pogon's league campaign resumes against Legia.
