August League Results:
Heidenhaim 1-1

Well for the 1st game of the season I am quite pleased with a draw becasue all my transfers debuted in this game. I thought Heidenhaim played little bit
better than my team but I understand why because my new players didn't gel in yet so that's why I am pleased that my team hold on to a draw in 1st game in
the season. Total shots were 12 to Heidenhaim and 10 to Koblenz which is slightly similar. Shots on target were 4 to Heidenhaim and 5 to my team which means that every 3rd shot for Heidenhaim was ending on target and every 2nd shot for my team was ended on target. Man of the match award was awarded to Andreas Glocknet from Heidenhaim who had rating of 7.8 which was the highest rating.

1890 Munchen 2-1

Well 1st win in German Second Division which felt really good because 1890 Munchen isn't that bad team and my team still managed to win this game. I thought my team played really good in this game and played better than team from Munchen which I was really pleased with that. Total shots for my team was 16 shots in which there were 2 shots on target which means that 11% of all shots were onto the target and into the net. 1st goal for my team was scored by Massimo
Cannizzaro in 45th minute which was his 1st goal for my team in higher league than German Third Division. 2nd goal for my team was scored by the same player as 1st goal in 76th minute. Only goal which was scored by 1890 Munchen was scored by Julian Schieber in 23rd minute.



St Pauli 3-2

It was amazing feeling when final whistle ended the game because this team played in German First Division in 1st season and my team played in Third
Division
and I thought this team will hammer my team because I think they are better team than Koblenz. After 1st minute I really thought ST Pauli will win this game because they have scored a goal than a quick comeback and my team managed to scored goal in 2nd minute and then again in 8th minute and then 3rd goal for my team was scored in 43rd minute which meant that untill half-time my team was winning 3-1 which I was really happy. Last goal of the game was scored in 55th minute and I was really happy when in 63rd minute when one of central-defenders of ST Pauli get his 2nd yellow card which meant the red card. Man of the match award was awarded to Matthias Lehmann who plays for St Pauli and he also got a rating of 8.2.


FSV Frankfurt 1-0

Well my team would hammer team from Frankfurt if they could have finish they chances but they couldn't so that's why only 1 goal was scored. Total shots on
goal were 15-4 to my team which is really high difference in which there were 7 shots on goal from my team which is just 46% of all shots from my team. I
think it was lucky that my team was lucky in 61st team because one of the defenders had tackle one of my stirkers in penalty box which meant my team was
awarded a penalty and FSV Frankfurt was give red card and Sergio Peter have scored from penalty in 62nd minute.

September League Results:

Bielefeld 4-0

Well I believe its one of the biggest win for my team so far. I think its pretty lucky that my team won by 4 goals because Bielefeld manage to get 2 red
cards in 45+3 minute so just before a half time and it was 2-0 before half-time. 1st goal was scored by Thomas Klasen in 14th minute of the game, followed
by goal from Lukas Nottbeck in 31st minute. 3rd goal was score by Tobias Bauer in 62nd minute. 4th and last goal was scored by Marcus Steegmann in 82nd
minute. Man of the match award was awarded to Lars Bender who had a rating of 8.6.

Cottbus 3-0

Another high win from my team against a team who I thought my team will lose. Both teams played on similar level but my team just managed to score goals
which made me really pleased because winning by 3 goals is rally hard. 1st goal was scored in 11th minute by Massimo Cannizzaro and then the same player
have scored his hat-trick. He scored in 36th minute and 68th minute of the game. So nearly classic hat-trick but not quite. Man of the match award was
awarded to Massimo Cannizzaro who had a rating of 9.6 which was the biggest rating of the game.


Achen 1-0


Well I think this win was little bit of lucky becasue since 31st minute my team was playing without 1 player and Achen just couldn't score a single goal so
I think that was little bit of luck. Only goal of the game was scored by Massimo Cannizzaro in 17th minute of the game. Man of the man award was awarded to
David Hohs who is goalkeeper of Achen who had a rating of 8.3. In my team highest rating was 8.0 for my keeper Dieter Paucken. Dieter Paucken has now 395
consecutive minutes without losing a goal. Now my team haven't lost in 25 games now.


German Cup:
Karlsruhe 2-1

Well I am really pleased that my team get into 3rd round of the cup because thanks to that its extra income from that. Well my team played really well in
this game and I am pleased with that and I am hoping that my team will play as good against this game as in the league which is in December. All goals were
scored in 1st half. 1st goal was scored by Patrick Schmidt in 5th minute followed by goal from Michael Stahl in 33rd minute and as I thought my team will be
2-0 up to half time Simon Zoller had scored in 45+2 minute of the game.
In 3rd round of the cup my team will play against Wolfsberg so I think my team will end playing in the cup on this game becasue Wolfsburg is really thought
opposition for my team.

October League Result:
Union Berlin 5-0

My team just hammed the Union becasue I think its the biggest win in which my team didn't conced the goal becasue the biggest win was in German Third league in which my team managed to win 6-1 so its the same amount of goals in which my team have won. 1st goal was scored in 13th minute and 2nd goal was scored in 25th minute by the same player my midfielder Oliver Laux which were his 1st goals in professional appearances. 3rd goal was scored by Marcus Steegman in 36th minute of the game and followed by goal by Massimo Cannizzaro in 38th minute of the game and Koblenz could have lead of 5-0 in the half time if Oliver Laux could have scored a penalty in 45+3 minute. Last goal of the game was scored by Edi Andradina in 90+1st minute of the game which made his 1st goal for the team. Man of the match award was awarded to Oliver Laux who had a high rating of 9.2 in this game.



Bochum 1-1

Well I thought my team played a little bit better than Bochum who I think is probably the best team in German Second Division so far becasue they didn't
lose a game so far and they are really good and I think they give the most trouble in the league so they are really good team. Before the game I thought my
team will lose this game and before half-time despite a small number of chances Bochum have taken the lead in 43rd minute by goal from Chritoph Dabrowski
and I really thought my team will lose because equaliser came really late in the game in 89th minute by unstoppable striker Massimo Cannizzaro. Man of the
match award was awarded ti Christoph Dabrowski who had the highest rating of the game of 7.6.



Gladbach 0-0

I thought Gladbach played a little bit better than my team but it turn out that my team managed to hold on to the draw which I think is quite good achivment
because in my opinion Gladbach is a lot better than my team and before the game they were favourites and even I thought that this game will end up win for
the Gladbach. Man of the match was awarded to one of my central defenders Florian Thorwart who managed to get a rating of 7.6 which was the highest rating of the match.




Duisburg 1-0

Well I think losing to the Wolfsburg affect a little of my players morales because they have played quite poorly but good enought to score a single goal and
to win which I think is the most important thing. Thanks to this win my team have now 2 points ahead of 3rd team and 2 points to bochum who are at top spot
in the league. Man of the match award was awarded to one of my defenders Ole Kittner who plays in centre. Only goal was scored by my top goalscorer so far
Massimo Cannizzaro which was his 9th goal in 9th game so he scores 1 goal/ game which is really good achivment. He is also the top goalscorer in the league
so I am kinda hoping that he will become the top goalscorer this season.


German Cup:
Wolfsburg 0-2

WEll its the 1st lost in the season but what can I do? Wolfsburg is a lot better team than Koblenz and if I was thinking about the promotion then it means
that my team would have quite a lot of signings and if it make it worse that my team dosne't have a lot of money so that's I am quite glad that my team
managed to get into 3rd round and they have earn some money for the club.


League Table:
November League Results:
Jena 1-0

Well I thought in this match Koblenz was little unlucky that they had only 1 goal scored because they had a lot of chances but just couldn't place a ball
into the net. Christian Pospischil was awarded a man of the match award and he had a highest rating of 8.0 in this game. Total shots for my team were 22
which is quite high and only 6 shots on target which compering to total shots is quite small but 6 shots on target is high. Only goal was scored by Stefan
Haben in 82nd minute which is quite late in the match and I was really happy when goal was scored.


Dusseldorf 2-0

Well I thought both teams played on similar level so I am really happy that my team have won by 2 goals but one of the strikers of Dusseldorf had got a red
card in 58th minute so I think if he didn't get this card I think my team would struggle to win this game. Man of the match award was awarded to Massimo
Cannizzaro who had the highest rating of 7.8 which I think is quite low rating for player with man of the match award.


Oberhausen 2-1

Well its 3rd win in this month which is really good and I am pleased with that. I think my team played slightly better than Oberhausen and thanks to this
win my team has now 4 points ahead of 2nd placed Bochum and 10 points ahead of 3rd placed Augsburg which I think is really amazing because my team is
predicted to be 14th and after 14 games my team is in top spot. Man of the match award was awarded to one of the my team's central defenders Florian
Thorwart who had the highest rating of 8.1. This win is 4th win in the row which is really good.



League Table:
December League Results:
Inglostadt 2-1

Well if not a goal in 92nd minute of the game then it would a draw so I think this win is kinda lucky for my team. I think both teams played on similar level so I think if this match ended with a draw than it would be fair result. 1st goal of the game was scored by Amine Aoudia who plays for Inglostadt. In 52nd minute my top goalscorer Massimo Cannizzaro have scored his 1st goal in this game and then he have scored his 2nd goal of the game in 92nd minute of the minute. Man of the match award was awarded to Massimo Cannizzaro who had the biggest rating of 8.8 which was only rating which was only rating which was higher tahn 7.3.

Augusburg 3-4

Well this is 1st lose in the league which I think is kinda dissapointing but a team can't go through without a lose. I think both teams played on similar level so that's even more dissapointing for me. Man of the match award was awarded to Michael Thruk who had the highest rating of 8.6. The lowest rating were awarded to both my full-backs who got rating of 5.7 each which is really low because usually my players get a rating of 7.0.

Karlsruhe 2-1

Well I am pleased that my team managed to win after a lose and I am also pleased that my team played well in this game and they also played better than Karlsruhe which is really good. 1st goal of the game was scored by Anton Fink in 12th minute of the game and its only goal in 1st half so into half-time my team were losing. 1st goal for my team was scored just after half-time in 47th minute Felix Kroos which was his 1st goal for Koblenz, 2nd goal for my team and last goal of the game was scored by Massimo Cannizzaro in 64th minute of the game. Man of the match award was awarded to Felix Kroos who had rating of 8.3.


Heidenhaim 3-0

Well as the last game of the Year I think my team played really well and I am pleased with this result because winning by 3 goals for me is really hard job to do and my team managed to do this so I am happy with this. 1st goal was scored in 7th minute of the game by my right-winger Christian Pospischil, 2nd goal was scored by ole Kittner in 27th minute minute of the game which meant that my team were leading 2-0 untill the half time which is really good. 3rd goal in the game was scored by Christian Pospischil which was his 2nd goal of the game. Man of the match award was awarded to Christian Pospischil who had a rating of 8.8 which is quite high.

League Table:
January League Results:
TSV 1980 Munich 4-1

I think its really good result especially after my new sign have debiuted in this game and I am really pleased that he even managed to score one of the
goals. I think my team played a lot better than TSV 1980 Munich which I am really pleased with that. Man of the match award was awarded to Edi Andradina who had a rating of 9.4 which is really high and to be honest I think he deserved that because he played really well in this game and I am really pleased with
his performance.


St Pauli 1-0

Well its antoher win for my team this month and 2 wins out of 2 games against St Pauli which I thought would be one of the best teams in this season in
German Secnond Divison and they performance is quite poorly because after this games they are in 13th position out of 18 teams which I think is quite poor
result for a team who just got relogated from the top division. I think both teams played on similar level which I think is really OK and I thought the
result is kinda fair but if it was a draw then I think it would be really fair. The only goal of the game was scored by Ole Kittner in 76th minute and he
also have been named a man of the match with rating of 8.2.


FSV Frankfurt 2-1

Well its 3rd win in the row for my team this month which is really good and it is also 5th win in the row. I think FSV Frankfurt played slightly better than
my team so I think its kinda lucky that my team have won that game because Frankfurt had a lot of shots especially at nearly end of the game so I am pleased
that my team could survive untill the end of the match. Man of the match award was awarded to one of Frankfurt players Jurgen Gjasula who had the highes
rating in the game of 8.3 which also was the only rating which was better than 8.0.

Febuary League Result:
Bielfield 1-1

Well I think my team is really lucky to have at least 1 point in this game because Bielfield played really good. Total shots for Bielfield were 17 meanwhile
where for my team there were only 1 shot and there were 5 shots on goal for Bielfield and only 1 shot on target so that's really poor performnace from my
team and I am dissapointed. Man of the match award was awarded to my goalkeeper Dieter Paucken who had the highest rating of 9.1. Avrage rating for my team
was 7.09 which is OK. 1st goal in the game was scored by Massimo Cannizzaro in 16th minute. 2nd goal and last goal in the game was scored by Dennis Grote in 87th minute so nearly my team could win this game but I am pleased that my team had a 1 point.

Cottbus 1-0

Well as in previous match my team was kinda lucky to win this game because Cottbus played better than my team and it means that my team dosn't need a lot of
chances to score a goal and they have luck. Only goal was scored by Adam Straith who placed a ball in wrong net which worked really well for my team. Man of the match award was awarded to Kolja Afriyie who had a rating of 7.5 which was the highest rating of the game. Avrage rating for my team was 6.86 which I
think is kinda poor but I think it could be worse.


Aachen 3-1

Both teams played on similar level which I think if it would be a draw than it would be a fair result but I am really pleased that my team have won this
game because Aachen is one of the favourites for promotion which really please me because my team is one of the team which are in lower end of teh table so I think it is a real achivment that my team have won that game which is really good. First goal was scored by Massimo Cannizzaro in 20th minute of the game follwed by goal by the same player in 28th minute and then Massimo have socred yet another goal in 45th minute which means that he have scored a classical
hat-trick. Only goal scored by Aachen was scored by Salomon Olembe in 70th minute of the game. Man of the match award was awarded to Massimo Cannizzaro who had a highest rating of 9.6. Avrage rating for my team was 8.02 which is really good because I think it's one of the highest avrage rating's this season.


Union Berlin 1-0

Well its 3rd win in the row which is really pleasing and I am happy with that. I think my team played a lot better than Union but in this match they
couldn't manage to finish more chance but I am pleased that my team won this game. Man of the match award was awarded to my team's right-back Lars Bender who had the highest rating of 7.4. Avrage rating for my team is 7.01 which I think is OK.




League Table:
March League Results:
Bochum 0-2

Well my team have lost there 2nd game in the league and I am not wondering why because I clearly saw that Bochum played a lot better than my team so I
thought it was matter of time when Bochum was scoring goals. I thought Boechum would win this season German Second Divison and they played really well to
this point of season so I am not that unhappy with result because Bochum is really good team for Second Division and I thought my team played quite well in
this match but Bochum played better and they have punish my team for mistakes that Koblenz have made. Man of the match award was awarded to one of the
defenders of Bochum Jukka Raitala who have a highest rating of 8.3. Highest rating that my player have got was 6.9 for Felix Kroos and avrage rating for my team was 6.63.


Gladbach 1-1

Well better a draw than losing this match especially when Gladbach is one of the favourite teams to get promoted in my opinion and drawing with them I think
is really good result and after a lose last game. 1st goal was scored by one of my strikers Marcus Steegmann in 11th minute of the game so my team take lead in quite early in the game which made me happy but not for very long because in Valdet Rama have equalise in 36th minute of the game so a final score was
settled by half-time. In 73rd minute I got scored because one of my central midfilders Lukas Nottbeck have been sent off after getting 2nd yellow card so Gladbach have played 17 minutes with 1 more player so that's why I got scored but lucky for my team they didn't score.


Duisburg 2-3

Another lost this month which means that it was one of the worst or even the worst month since I took over Koblenz but what can I say every team in some
point could have worse month and lose some of the games and I think for my team is better that they have this happend in this month because it is nearly the
ned of the season and my team is in really good position because after this game they had still 14 points ahead of 2nd placed Bochum so they really good
chance of getting promoted into Bundesliga and achive their highest position ever which till now was 10th in German Second Division. I thought both teams played on similar level and I really thought this game would end in a draw but unlucky for my team this game was lost and I thought Duisburg was beatable team becasue they really low in the league so I thought my team would win easly this game.

Jena 1-0

So at this point of this I thought this month ain't so bad because at least my team won this game so 3 points more for my team. I thought my team played a
little bit better than Jena which so far plays quite poorly in this season because they have been in 17th position so I thoguht my team would win easly this
game but after losing to Duisburg I had doubts that my team could underperform in this game again because they had really low morales and they had only 1 point in last 3 games which I thoguht for my team in this season is quite low. Only goal was scored by Edi Andradina in 65th minute of the game so untill half-time I was kinda scared that my team will lost yet another set of points which would be appauling but lucky for me and my team Jena couldn't score a goal. Man of the match award was awarded to Patrick Fabian who had the higest rating of 7.7. For my team highest rating have got Edi Andradin who had a rating of 7.3 and avrage rating for my team was 6.99.


Dusselfdorf 0-0

Well not a result that I expected because I thought Dusseldorf is beatable team but after a kinda bad month I kinda happy that my team have at least 1 point
from this game because 1 point is still better than no points at all. I also think my team played slightly better than Dusseldorf but they sure can defend
and my team just couldn't finish their chances. Man of the match award was awarded to my central defender Ole Kittner who have got a rating of 7.3 which I think is quite good rating in this kinda poor match. Avrage rating for my team was 6.81 which is OK ratings. Total shots for my team were 9 shots and only 2
were on target so and there were any 100% chances for my team so well I think its not that bad.


League Table:

April League Resukts:
Oberhausen 4-0

Well my team played really well in this game and you can see that by that it is one of the best results that my team ever had which I think is really
brilliant and I am pleased with that. I thought Koblenz played a lot better than Oberhausen so I understand why my team have won by so many goals. Untill
half time my team were leading 1-0 so I thought my team would win this game becasue they played really well in 1st half and they even managed to get lead.
Man of the match award was awarded to my right winger Michael Stahl. Avrage rating for my team was 7.54 which is pretty high but my team played really well
and won by 4 goals.


Inglostadt 2-2

I thought my team would win this game but Inglostadt was really tought rival in this game so I think I should be happy with this result but it could be
better if my team played a little bit better because both teams played on similar level. In first half there were non goals so 0-0 untill half time so after
first half in my opinion wasn't so interesting and well I thought my team was plaing slightly better. In second half all goals were scored and I thought
Inglostadt would win this game becasue they played better in this half. Goal scored for Inglostadt Derlon Buckley in 59th minute and Efosa Eguakun. For my
team both goals were scored by Marcus Steegmann in 61st and 77th minute of the game. Man of the match award was awarded to Marcus Steegmann who had the
highest rating of 8.8.


Augsburg 3-4

I think it is kinda a shame that my team have lost but Augsburg is one of better teams in German Second Division this season so I prfer that my team have
lost to them and lost to one of the worse teams so I think it is in some way good. I thought my team played better than Augsburg but I think my team just
couldn't hold Augusburg strikers which I think is kinda appauling because I think my defenders are quite good but they didn't have good match so that's why
4 goals have been placed in my keeper's net. In first half there were 5 goals which means most goals were scored in this half and it was really intresting
and I was really happy because my team was winning 3-2 but then came 2nd half and unluckly for my team they have lost 2 goals and just couldn't score. In
this game stadium of my team Oberwerth was completly full which I think is pretty amaizing. Man of the match award was awarded to Viktor Elm from Augsburg.


May League Result:
Karlsruhe 1-1

As last match of the season I would prefer that my team would go away with a win especially playing away from home but I have to say that Karlsruhe played
better than my team and I think my team was lucky to draw in this game. In first half of the game there weren't any goals but in 12th minute of the game
Karlsruhe had a penalty but luckly for my team they didn't score. 1st goal of the game come quite late in the game because in 72nd minute of the game and
was scored for my team by Marcus Steegmann. Equaliser gaol was scored by Caiuby in 77th minute of the game.Man of the match award was awarded to one of my
defenders Kyriakos Papadopoulos which was his first award. Avrage rating for my team was 6.97.

League Table:



Season Conclution:

I am really pleased with my teams performance this season because meadia prediction were that my team would be 14th this season and my teams highest league
positon was 10th German Second Divison so before this season I thought if my team would be between 10th and 15th position it would be really good achivment
and yet my team managed to go into Bundesliga from German Third Division in just 2 season which is really hard to achive in FM game as is in real life.
Due the financial problems I really am pleasped that my team ended in 1st spot because my team have been awarded with 29.300.000PLN(about 7.500.000Euro).

Only 1 player from my team decided to retire at the end of the season and this player is Rivaldo who had been playing for Koblenz for since 1.1.2012 which is not a long time but he is 40 years old so I understand why he wanted to retire and now he is going to be Manager.
After all games played my team's avrage % of stadium capacity was 92% which is pretty high and I am hoping it will increase
Winner of German Cup was Hertha Berlin.
Top Golscorer was Massimo Cannizzaro with 24 goals in 35 games.
I was named Manager of the Year.
Ole Kittner and Massimo Cannizzaro were in team of the season.
Season 2012-2013 German Bundesliga

In my third season with TuS Koblenz, I am playing in Bundesliga.

Well as my team is just promoted into Bundesliga from German Second Division which means my aims in this season are:
-Stay in Bundesliga.
-Have better financials.
-Be better in German Cup than in last season which was 3rd round.
- Win against one of Dortmund, FC Bayern, Hertha BSC, HSV, Leverkusen, Schalke, Stuttgart, or Werder.


I think I can stay in Bundesliga as I made few good transfers for Koblenz.



I especially happy that I managed to get:

Freddy Adu:

Ryan Babel:

Felipe Caicado:


And Martin Caceres:



Friendlies:

Boussu 2-1
Sandhausen 1-2
Rostock 2-2
Schalke 0-3
Virton 4-0
Almeria 0-5

Some of bad results there so I am just hoping that my players will be playing better in the season.

In month of August my team is playing against Neumunster in German Cup 1st Round and Bochum as first German Bundesliga match for TuS Koblenz ever.

TuS Koblenz manager gives interview for Koblenz newspaper Rhein-Zeitung:



Int: It is first season for TuS Koblenz in Bundesliga. How do you feel?

MD:
Really well. I am pleased that I managed to give TuS Koblenz that success to play in top division.

Int: You have been playing 6 games in pre-season. How you think your team did in them?

MD: I think they could have playing better as they only managed to win 2 games.

Int: Do you think that TuS Koblenz got what it takes to stay in Bundesliga?

MD:
Well with my new signings I think they could be in 15th or 14th spot. So yeah I think they could be in Bundesliga in 2013/2014 season.

Int: You managed to sign 7 players for team. Who is your favorite player and who do you think will make the best impact?

MD: My favorite player is Freddy Adu but I think the most impact will give Martin Caceres.

Int: You sign them all 7 players without spending any money. How do you do that?

MD: Well I just look at free agents after 30th of June.

Int:
Do you planning any more transfers?

MD: Of course not. Personally I think 7 players is too much.

Int: Thank you for Interview

MD:
Thank you for having me over.
August 2012

Bochum 4-4

Well I am not happy with this draw as TuS Koblenz gave away their win as they were leading 3-0 until half time and I really hate when my team is up by this type of lead and they are not winning the game. But on other hand there were 6 debutants in the team which meant that team is not gel together yet so I should be happy that Koblenz got 1 point in away match. Also Felipe Caicado and Ryan Babel managed to score their first goals for Koblenz. In this match both teams played on similar level so I think draw is good for both teams.

German Cup 1st round:

Neumunster 4-1

In first round of German Cup TuS Koblenz managed to smash Neumunster who plays lower than German 3rd Division. I am happy with the result because it was first game in 2012-2013 season and they managed to score 4 goals which isn’t happening to me a lot. A new right back Alexis Norabuena played really well in this match as he had been active in defense and had a few crosses into the box which lead to shots on goal in this match. A loaned player from Werder Felix Kroos(younger brother of Toni Kroos) managed to score 2 goals. Felipe Caicado and Ole Kittner where two other scorers in this match. Neumunster were only better in Crosses Completed in this match as they got 100% and TuS Koblenz got only 28%.

Other News:
-In 2nd round of German Cup, TuS Koblenz drew Freiburg who plays in German Second Division. I think my team can be Freiburg and qualify into 3rd round and eventually qualify into next round.
-Austrian SKN St. Polten had been named as TuS Koblenz feeder club. I am hoping that I might loan few players there to play in first team.
