Must depend on the Board - I am in a whole lot of trouble in the Czech Republic as a Sunday League footballer, and still got a slight bump in wages.....

WTH! We're £3.82k in debt anyway
Thela Ngobeni was signed on a free. He wasn't as good as my scout thought, but I decided to keep him and get rid of Kock.
Daniel Moeletsi was sold to Chippa United for £1k.
I also completely revamped my staff. Legendary goalkeeping coach Mohamed Al Deayea was among the staff to come in.The former Saudi Arabia international is the most capped player in the history of football (internationally).Innocent Chikoya is also a target. He'll join as head of youth development.
Shish, taking so long to get through the pre season
- National First Division Cup 1st Round
F.C.A.K. 1 - United FC 5
(Given Banda 83) (Solomon Mathe 20, Cedric de Wee x3, Daniel Khumalo 87)
This was - even if I do say so myself - a thoroughly deserved win.Cedric de Wee is an exceptional striker, and with the tactic I use, Andrew Masango really works well with him. I'm pleased with my signings and I feel that the club is moving in the right direction. If every match is this easy, I may as well move on to Europe!
Our standard, very attacking and effective tactic.
This will only be used in situations against much stronger opponents than us.
Good luck with it Matt
Pentagon is always a difficult challenge.
Hope you succeed
nice good solid victory there
good luck with reast of season m8
Just got to love a pentagon story. Good luck mate.
National 1st Division Cup Quarter Finals
Jomo Cosmos 2 - United FC 2 Pens: 4-3 to Jomo Cosmos.
(Ndumiso Mabena 63, Bamuza Sono, 90+3) (Cedric de Wee x2, 10,20, Cedric de Wee injury)
A really, really unfair match. After de Wee scored twice, he got injured.Their goal was scored in the 93rd minute, yet there was only meant to be 2 minutes of injury time. This then took it on to penalties, after extra time, and then Shitolo (lol) scored the winner for the Cosmos.The biggest blow though is de Wee. A prolific striker, he hopefully won't be out for too long.
lol Cedric didn't even pick up a proper injury.
A very, very promising pre-season. The tactic fits my players perfectly, I really like how they perform and we only picked up to losses, one on penalties. The win against FS Stars was particularly pleasing, as they are a division above us.It may have been on pens, but it took them until the 87th minute to score, which shows what a strong side we have.Overall I am very happy, and bring on the first league match!
Why would you get rid of Kock! That sounds painful!
That being said, I wish you the very best of luck "Not George King".
I will be reading your progress good luck with this difficult task.
FC Cape Town 0 - 0 United FC
A very Frustrating Match. They had a goal disallowed, we had two key players injured (Manconba & Khumalo), and only one shot out of seven was on target.They only had two out of 9. A really, really bad match.
United FC 0 - 2 Dynamos
Another terrible performance. We only had one shot on target again, but this time we only had 3 shots. Strangely we had 55% of possession, but we couldn't do anything with it. The absence of Manconba and Khumalo really didn't help either and we had to drastically change our formation, with no backup left mid at all.Very disappointing and we still hadn't scored another goal.
MP Black Aces 0 - 2 United FC
Finally we won. We were still not clinical enough (see graph below) but we got our first win and that's the most important thing.Having Khumalo and Manconba back certainly helped, but what did not help was that Mathe got injured. We didn't really dominate the match at all.In fact they were much the better side.However luck was on our side an a win is a win.
Summary: Well, it September had a bit of everything, wit a win a loss and a draw.Unfortunately we played bad in all of them.
Word Of The Month: Absymal.
An OK position at 9th considering we were 15th after the loss.
