Macallister? What are you doing Feliks?
very good story but surely there are better strikers available
edu and champi0n Low wages, big target man, Australian backup. Not looking for someone to light Poland on fire, just a solid short term rotation option
You should have a look at Lukas Teodorczyk very good young striker considered the next Lewa, not sure how good he is in game though so scout him first

Pogon Flounder Over Winter Break

Pogon Szczecin have had a horrible winter break, winning just 2 games, drawing 1 and losing 5 in a performance that has had many fans shaking their head. Although there were some promising performances in Germany, it was ultimately an unsuccessful campaign and is not the best way for the team to re-enter the Ekstraklasa season.


The break began after a month of Christmas holidays, with a match against the reigning Bulgarian champions Ludogorets. Pogon managed to completely shut them out and the match ended in a boring 0-0 draw.

Then, the tour of Germany began with a match against Hertha BSC. In what should have been a tight game turned into a whitewash with the Berlin team defeating Pogon 3-1 with a late goal by Lewandowski saving the Polish team.

Braunschweig was a match that Pogon should have won, but 3 first half goals to the Germans sealed the deal despite a spirited Szczecin comeback. 3-2 was the final score with Robak a huge loss in the 92nd minute.

Our 3rd match in the tour was against St Pauli, another winnable game. This time there was no was no comforting comeback, just a sad 2-0 loss as our despicable break went on.

The Pogon squad seemed to have a serious lack of morale in their next match, and with the odds stacked against them they were dispatched 2-0 by Dresden, trekking back over the border to Szczecin with their tails between their legs.

Luckily, they were given a way out when they came up against Czech non-leaguers Blsany and recorded a solid 2-0 win.

They would have been hoping that the form would continue in their 2 matches against second division Polish teams, but disaster struck when a last minute goal meant Pogon succumbed 2-1 to the minnows of Bytovia, and morale struck an all-time low. A lazy 2-1 win over Flota failed to lift confidence and Pogon will not have enjoyed the pre-season that was.


Dylan Macallister from Free Transfer (Free)

Filip Kozlowski to GKS Katowice (Loan)
Szymon Kapelusz to Calisia (Loan)
Pavol Cicman to Al-Ra'ed (150K)

The only signing of the window for Pogon was back up striker Dylan Macallister, a short term replacement for injured Marcin Robak. Meanwhile Filip Kozlowski and Szymon Kapelusz were loaned out whilst back up winger Pavol Cicman was sold to Saudi Arabian club Al-Ra'ed.

What's To Come

Pogon will continue their league campaign with 7 games left to go in the season. Pogon are unlikely to escape the relegation group and will instead look to get some form heading into it to secure their safety. The campaign resumes against Lodovico's favourite club Legia Warsaw.

Author's Note

Hi guys! Unfortunately I will not be able to update over the coming days as I am rather sick and the prospect of delving through FM and writing 1000 word updates is just not appealing. Regular updates should resume soon!
Hope you get better soon mate. Will be looking forward to reading the story again.
But but but ... MILAN!
Get better soon mate, interesting choice of new team by the way! Good luck and I hope things improve!
