League Cup Fixtures + Transfers pre-2014

Hey guys, I have made three super transfers for the upcoming 2014 season but before I talk about transfers, it is time to see my League Cup group anf fixtures!

League Cup

I'm very happy with my group. I am expecting to win all six games in the group. Hopefully I can :)

Transfers (All in)

Rasmus Schuller
£60,000 (HJK) - £700 p/w
22 yrs old - MC

Juha Tuomi
Free Transfer - £450 p/w
24 yrs old - GK

Muhammed Demirci
Free Transfer - £600 p/w
18 yrs old - AMC/MC

I am absolutely ecstatic about the three players I managed to bring in, especially Demirci. Considering I paid just £60k for one player shows that these were bargain deals. Schuller and Tuomi will most likely be playing for the Finnish national team in a couple of years which is a huge achievement. Demirci is one of the biggest prospects in world football these days and will be more than a great player for KuPS, maybe even the greatest player to have ever played for the club!

Stay tuned for the team report!

Diary Entry ???

Dear Diary,

It has been 6 weeks since the last time I've seen Nick. I miss his appearance around me, when i was stalking him, but now I'm stalking Dudu. The sick basterd has made Kate cheat on the love of my life. Even if Dudu had the BJ of his life, Nick's heart may be broken by 1 guy, and that would be me.

After buying the raincoat, the newspaper and the plainticket to Manilla, I began following his steps. Seeing him do several men, woman, and even someone who looked like a naked dog owner from Australia, which called himself Emile, it was clear that not playing football payed his toll, and that he now tried to get every ball he can get.

I'm still trying to figure out where and when to kill him, although the amount of STD's he already caught would be a deathly cocktail for even the healthiest of men. I was trying to obtain a purple dildo, and let him choke on it, but then I realised that would be more of a job for an average man from Thailand.

Ok, Diary, need to go now, Dudu is coming out of the red light district, and going straight to the pub, so I need to keep some watch on him.
holy shit! demirci will rape the defenders in your league! hopefully you'll manage to hold on to him for years to come ;)
Michael, you are one of a kind in this site. Hahahaahahaaha

Team Report

A team report:

28 Players
4 GK
2 DR - 5 DC - 2 DL
4 MC
2 AMR - 4 AMC - 2 AML
3 ST

And the players:

*Signings with in season*

As you can see, we have a very strong team. There is a very good mix of youth and experience. I will be looking to off-load Litmanen, Taipale and Ehiorobo at the end of this season, due to their age. I will also need at least one younger striker as Venalainen and Forssell are both in their thirties. Right back seems our weakest position right now but there are not many quality right backs up for grabs right now. I hope Hoivala and Nissinen improve enough to be quality players there in the future.

Stay tuned for the next episode!
Can't believe how you got demirci for free :), lets hope he reaches his potential :D
A little unofficial update for you Ilja Venalainen lovers! :P

A great achievement for the greatest player to have ever worn the KuPSi jersey <3

Who's Ilja Venalainen? :P

The One With Tears

In an interview in Kuopio's market square...

I was sitting down with a lovely reporter called Ema Eskonen from Savon Sanomat in Kuopio's famous market square. She was asking me about my divorce, if I had any secret sweet-hearts and about my plans as the manager of KuPS.

Ema Eskonen: "Have been in a relationship since your tough divorce?"

Me: "No, it has been very hard for me to get over everything that has happened. I haven't been motivated to get back on the horse. Probably the only reason that I haven't given up on life is managing KuPS, and I guess I have some hope for a relationship."

E.E.: "Please, tell me more."

Me: "I don't really know what to say. I was at a pub once and a girl walked in. She was the most beautiful girl that I have ever layed my eyes upon. I could feel my heart twist in to knots as I watched her."

E.E.: "And did you talk to this girl?"

Me: "No, I was too shocked at the time. It was the first time in months that I ever felt something for a girl, even if I have never talked to that girl before."

E.E.: "Ok, let's move on to KuPS. You have made three high-profile signings, most notably Muhammed Demirci. How will these players fit in to your plans?"

Me: "All three of them are incredible players. Juha and Rasmus will be in the squad from the start. Muhammed is still only eighteen years old and has a lot to learn. I will be looking for Jari (Litmanen) to tutor him and that will improve his understanding of the game. Muhammed is still a teenager and I am looking forward to managing him when he reaches the peak of his career."

E.E.: "You almost got in to the Europa League groups stages last time and now you are in the Champions League qualifiers. What are your European aims this time?"

Me: "I think we have to aim high. We know we won't win the competition but we are a club looking to move forward all the time and getting to the group stage of either the Champions League or the Europa League would be perfect."

The interview continued on...


After the interview was over, I decided to take a stroll through the parks around Kuopio. I was contemplating what I had said. Who was this girl in the pub? I kept asking myself the same question. I was walking around the park for what must have been at least three hours, always with the same question. I needed to find out who she was.

I stopped walking and sighed. I looked up and no more than twenty feet in front of me was the girl. She was wearing a designer jacket and a wooly hat and gloves to protect her from the raging snow. She was starung straight at me. I didn't know what was in her eyes. Was it wonder? Pity? Worry? It could have been any of these things but whatever it was, I wanted her.

I walked towards her, staring in to her eyes as I did. Fifteen feet, twelve, ten, seven, five, I was there. We continued to stare in to each others' eyes. She spoke softly,

The girl: "I am so sorry to hear about what happened to you."

She continued to stare at me. I felt all the sadness from the previous months getting ready to erupt. She looked in to my eyes. I saw a caring, sincere person in her eyes. I could feel them coming and I couldn't stop them. Right there and then, I began to cry. She put an arm around my shoulder and she held me. She soaked up all the tears but they kept coming and coming and coming.
Nick, just to be clear, this is a Football Manager site, not a site where you can post random love stories :P
And... there goes KuPS. From now on you are all welcome to Nick's drama story ;)

My Future

Johnson: "I'm commited"

In a press conference today, before the League Cup campaign begins, KuPS manager Nick Johnson re-affirmed his commitment to KuPS.

Nick Johnson: "Times have been tough for me recently but I am finally back on my feet. I have met a girl who I have began a relationship with which has settled me down and now I can focus on my job. I vow to try my hardest to bring KuPS to the top. I know that it will be tough climb to become the best but I am ready, willing and able. It is now or never.

When I arrived here a year ago, I inherited a squad of intelligent, passionate players who would do anything to get the win. They haven't changed, although they might be a bit smarter now. *chuckles* The players have been fantastic from day one and they have been thriving under the spotlight of being the champions. I could not ask for a better set of players, they are a joy to work with.

The hallmark of any good team is their trophy haul, which has grown since the last season. We are not done yet. We want more trophies. We know that it will be tough to retain what we won last term but we will fight for every game. We are a team that is willing to do what it takes to win. We are determined, we are eager and we are ready. We are KuPS, and we are on the rocky road to glory!"
That is quite the rousing speech there Rookie. Hopefully it will rub off onto your players who will put in 100% for you so you can get more success. Such a good read.
