Maldini the training facilities in the early hours of this morning looking satisfied with how is managerial career is going.

Squad Strength

A overview of my team. Maldini is rumoured to be very happy the central defenders and the central midfeilders but now is supposedly looking for wide men in both defense and midfield. Maldini has been given a budget of £43,237 in transfer money and £7,000 left over in wage budget. So Maldini will be looking to strengthen the squad.


Maldini has decided to be generous and go for a tactic that suits his current team very much by emphasising on a good central core for his teams foundations.
This story is shaping up really nicely Beany, keep it up! This can be even better than your Leverkusen one, and maybe even a contender for Story of the Month :)
I like the twist. A great start, and I agree with Blue, if this carries on it could be a contender! Good luck and keep it up Beany!

Maldini Broadens His Horiozens

Today Maldini announced the news that he has hired two new scouts to help him develop the team further. Although Maldini was brutally honest and admitted that the scouts were not of a high quality they like him were new to the game and were keen to do all they can for San Marino Calcio. They were quickly put to work by Maldini who has them scouting several players with in an hour of them signing the contract. Things are looking up for San Marino Calcio fans, not only do they have a manager with legendery status but he also seems aware on how to progress a football club and most importantly how to sign good players.
Nice start Beany, see if the scouts can get you any good players (for your standards)!
not bad at all, not a fan of modesty this Maldani fellow eh? :p

have concerns with the tactic of ld and bpd at the back though, prefer standard dc and ld, or cover and stopper but i dont know your players

best of luck, id hope your advanced playmaker is a good dribbler from the mc position!

Maldini Brings In Multiple Free Agents To Strengthen Squad

Paolo Maldini is proving that not only was he a worldclass footballer but he also has a great eye for a bargain. Maldini has signed six players for the team all as free agents. Maldini seemed escpecially happy with his first ever dive into a transfer market.

Esteban Dutra: An aging left winger who has decent pace and acceleration for someone of his age, his key strength is his footballing brain. He knows what to do and when to do it. He has plenty of experience in the footballing world and looks set to become a key player this season for San Marinio Calcio.

Stefano Olivieri: A player that has mainly been drafted in to be a back up center half which is a role he is more than happy to fill. Stefano is a vital part of the team as injuries can occur at any time and before the signing of Stefano the defensive line was look rather weak in depth.

Riccardo Bonetto:One of the best leftbacks avaliable at this level Riccardo excells at being a team player and bringing the wingers infront of him into the game, but he can also track back very well and you will very rarely see him make a genuine mistake.

Fausto Rossini:A top quality striker for this league Maldini will be delighted to have secured his signeture so early on. Maldini has openly admitted already that he only plans to use one striker so this striker has to be unselfish and a great goal scorer all in one. Step forward Rossini.

Laurent Montoya:Another ageing leftback to provide cover in the leftback position. He is by no means only of backup ability and has the ability to push for a starting spot, but Maldini has yet again shown he is keen to strengthen is defensive core if they are to survive this season.

Donovan Maury:An ageing center back but by no means one of the oldest to be playing in Italian football. Maldini sees alot of himself in this player, stop the defender at all costs and very consistent. Donovan is sure to be a key player this season.

Maldini's View

Maldini has told the fans that these players can honestly keep San Marinio Calcio away from any relegation battles that they are expected to so heavily be involved with. Maldini has made it obvious he wants a balanced team but has tried to strengthen his defense more than anything.
