From Indonesia

Hello, everyone. I am from Indonesia. Since the quality of football in my own country is nothing much to care about and the tv coverage of Europe's top leagues are ways too much to care about , I decide to stick to my PC instead and play football management games as much as I care. The games are often predictably as boring but it's never less lively. With the help of the game editor, I have brought a dead Yugoslavian league team back into the Second Division Serbia, with enough cash to sign some experienced talents from free transfer and to pay them better wages than Partizan or RedStar paid their players. I deliberately restrict my taste around players from the nearby nations, and since I used Bosnian nationality as manager, I attracted more Bosnian players than of any other nationalities, now half of my squad are Bosnians. We won the second division at first try, and now in my fourth season as manager, my team resources have got better and better, and we are now too strong for any team in the league, we are the new giant of Eastern Europe. Well, I don't know exactly how many players in my squad are actually real people (Mehmedalija Covic or Vladimir Milijevic, are they real human beings?), but at least playing with them are Stipe Pletikosa, Aleksandr Rodic, and Georgi Hritstov, runaways from bigger leagues and I know they are real people. Also I have Meho Kodro as my assistant manager, meanwhile veterans like Njegus, Rapaic, Pavlin, and Gajser once played for us too. The only non ex-Serb/Mn/BIH/Slo/Cro player ever played for me was Moldova's Sergei Dadu, and he was my worst signing, I terminated his contract before too long. What surprise me is that I really enjoy playing this club, I had never finished a single season with other league in this slow computer game, but this time around it's just insane fun. I don't really understabd why because I don't even know too much about the countries, the current politics, the culture, the footballing culture etc.. The point is I just want to let you know that the name like Leotar, Vedad Ibisevic, Nedim Halilovic, Siroki Brijeg, Maxima Modrica etc. are not at all strange to me even that I live so far far away (and even that I don't have a slightest idea what you are guys talking about when you are not writing in English).

hey thanks for supporting us, it's great to see people that love our way of football. We have great talent and great players, but like you said politics are holding us back and higher organizations.

Na vjernost ti se kunem
Od mora do Save
Od Drine do Une

Jedna si jedina
moja domovina
Jedna si jedina
Bosna i Hercegovina

Bog nek' te sačuva
Za pokoljenja nova
Zemljo mojih snova
Mojih pradjedova

Just out of curiosity, which team team did you "bring back from the dead"?
