    Lightbulb My Siberian Challenge - A Blog

    Hi one and all

    I've given myself the task of proving myself in Siberia with the ultimate aim of returning to England in a Premier League capacity. Hopefully my blog that is riddled with Championship Manager folklore and a chunk of roleplay will tickle everyone's fancy.

    https://cm0102blog.wordpress.com/

    I'd love to know people's thoughts. Please tell me if you like it, please indeed tell me if you hate it. I'll crunch the numbers and abuse and see if I should carry on. Oh and don't hesitate to chuck me some young Russian talent, should you know of any.

    Cheers!

    I'll start you off with a "like". Nice style and adding in a bit of background. Good use of stereotypes which always goes down well.

    The foreign player restriction is always the big problem in Russia, so you can't start signing all of the usual suspects willy-nilly. Joao Paiva will be a worthy addition, soworth using up 1 slot on him. Harsh to loose a key player so early. Have you asked your Physios to assess every player. It is always good to know who is injury prone and who is carrying a repetative problem.

    As for Russian talent ..... you're on your own ! Good luck.

    Agreed. Nice start. Nice writing style.
    Paiva will do well certainly.

    Certainly gonna be tough and as Kingsley says, most of the usual suspects are out of the question.
    Will be an interesting journey.

    Make sure you keep us updated when new chapters are added.

    Thanks Kingsley, kind words - I'm glad you liked it. Paiva shows the Russian lads that I'm not gonna get a load of English guys in, but hopefully he'll deliver the goods too. Yeah it's weird, I've pooled through so many lists of hidden gems and very few Russians have populated those lists... Oh dear.

    Thank you also. The road is long my friend, but we'll see how we go. I'll try and update as much as I can via this forum. Failing that I'll tweet https://twitter.com/ChampMan_0102

    I don't know if you have seen the ULG (User League Guide) which gives info about all the playable leagues. It is available for download somewhere on this site. Anyway, for Russia, it lists this which might help ....
