I will apply for any jobs to start off with. Once employed I will only employ from shortlist of players and staff. Will advertise for staff if needed. That may be from scouting of knowledge of my staff, their ex clubs, will scout national teams and scout all teams in country (and then near by countries) that I am based in first and seek suggestions from players and director of football, coaches etc... Will use player search screen for player on loan list or transfer list. I will run the training, tactics, friendlies, contracts, signing of staff except the director of football. The aim is to be financially solvent and loan out players or sell if necessary. Try to improve facilities, affiliates and scouting through out my time with each team if there is the finances and of course get coaching badges as quickly as possible. Countries Loaded: Belarus Bulgaria Czech Republic Hungary Moldova Poland Romania Russia Slovakia Ukraine German Democratic Republic (West Germany) Albania—(Southern Europe) Bosnia and Herzegovina—(Southern Europe) Croatia—(Southern Europe) Republic of Macedonia—((Southern Europe) Montenegro—(Southern Europe) Serbia—(Southern Europe) Estonia (Baltic State) Latvia (Baltic State) Lithuania (Baltic State) Armenia (Eurasia) Azerbaijan (Eurasia) Georgia (Eurasia) Kazakhstan (Eurasia) Turkey (Eurasia)

Started save after being unemployed for a couple of months, with MFС Mykolaiv.
Started with lowest level of coaching badges and player experience.
The plan is to get them financially solvent and performing well quickly.
Will seek affiliates from same country if possible with better training or youth facilities.
Club does not want an affiliate club.
I will only use the Senior Team and Under 23 team and pull all other players into one of those teams or loan them out.
Board allowed me to mutual terminate staff, so did so for all the 2nd and U/18 sides and then employed staff to fill Seniors and Under 23 team.
The club has a major financial problem with very little money.
Started in debt and even by loaning out and selling players in the First Transfer window (January - February 2019) and being three thousand under wage budget the club was still hemorrhaging money.
Started in Relegation zone, right now with three games to go am six points above the relegation zone.
So, will be in same division next season, barring an incredible implode.
Have run with and 4 - 2 DM - 3 - 1 formation with in game change to 4 - 2 DM - 2 - 2 formation.
Had to load in players to fill the formation.
Found that under 20 players are not registered in the squad of 25.
So, have loaned a number once I worked this out and tried to buy a couple, unfortunately Ukraine talent is over priced because of this squad loo-pol.
Have found it difficult to find DMs in Ukraine.
But with reliance on scouts, players and Director of Football it is difficult to find the players for the formation.
So, yes I am trying to fit my team into my formation.
Long term want to get promoted with team and get some coaching badges (club needs to be solvent to do this, unfortunately).
May have to move on towards the end of the third season as club lack the financial power to match it with the big boys in the Ukraine Premier League.


MFC Mykolaiv is one of the oldest football clubs that exists in Ukraine. Originally was established as a football team of the Black Sea Shipyard, since dissolution of the Soviet Union and cutting of the shipyard's budget which was based mostly on military contacts, it is sponsored mostly by the city of Mykolaiv.

MFC Mykolaiv (Municipal Football Club "Mykolaiv", Ukrainian: Муніципальний футбольний клуб "Миколаїв" ) is a Ukrainian football club. The club has been demoted three times from the Ukrainian Premier League. MFС Mykolaiv's best achievement in the Ukrainian Premier League was 13th place (in 1994–95). MFC Mykolaiv reached 1st place in Druha Liha group A in 2010–11 season and was promoted to Persha Liha.
