    Building a new Ukrainian Powerhouse: Dnipro

    This is my second team guide, my first was Tottenham Hotspur and this one is on a Ukrainian side trying to force their way into the Champions League, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.


    -----------




    1. Club Details:
    Name: Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk
    Nation: Ukraine
    League: Ukrainian Premier League
    Position(2009/2010): 4th
    Founded: 1918
    Nickname: DD
    Stadium: Arena-Dnipro
    Manager: Juande Ramos

    2.Season Expectations



    Continental Qualification should be your expectation for the season. You have a nice budget of £4.8 million which would be more than enough for your needs.

    3.Tactics and the first team Team
    Dnipro is a good team with great talent. It is a team in Ukraine who is pushing for Europe. It is up to you know to break the dominance of Shakhtar and Dynamo Kyiv in Ukraine and build a new powerhouse.

    As Dnipro, I would recommend using a 4-4-2 with wingers. There are many on this site, including Stu's, Raikan's and Mr.Hough tactics. I used the Il Devasto tactic which can be found HERE.

    Here is a screen of the first team squad:



    Goalkeepers:


    Jan Lastuvka - Czech Republic - (27 years old)
    Anton Kanibolotskyi - Ukraine - (22 years old)
    Lastuvka is your obvious first choice here, a solid GK for your side. Kanibolotskyi is decent backup. A third choice keeper would be needed here.

    Suggested Transfer(s):

    In-
    Artur Denchuk - Ukraine - Metalist - 1.4 Million - (18 years old)


    -----------


    Full-backs:


    Samuel Inkoom - Ghana - RB - (20 years old
    Ucha Lobzhanidze - Georgia - RB - (23 years old)
    Pavlo Pashaev - Ukraine - RB (24 years old)
    Vitaly Denisov - Uzbekistan - LB/LWB (23 years old)
    Ivan Strinic - Croatia - LB/LWB/LM (22 years old)

    As Dnipro manager, you have decent full-backs at your disposal. Inkoom, who was signed from Basel in January is first-choice on the right, with Pashaev and Lobzhanidze as adequate backup. Another January acquisition for Dnipro was Croatian full-back Ivan Strinic from Hajduk, both he and Denisov are pretty similar so you might want to rotate them.

    Suggested Transfer(s):
    Out-
    Ucha Lobzhanidze - 650k


    -----------


    Centre-backs:


    Andriy Rusol - Ukraine - (27 years old)
    Alcides - Brazil - (25 years old)
    Nelson Rivas - Colombia - (27 years old)
    Vitaliy Mandzyuk - Ukraine (24 years old)
    Eugene Cheberyachko - Ukraine (27 years old)

    Rusol is a class-act. He is the captain of your team. Alcides and Mandzyuk are decent, but not quality and one of them can be sold to generate funds. I sold Alcides as he would occupy a foreign spot if I played him. Cheberyachko is also decent, but I recommend retraining him as a full-back, because of his high dribbling and nice crossing stat. Also, you have Nelson Rivas, on loan from Inter but he has a crazy agreed future fee, so use him for one season and sign a replacement for a first choice CB

    Suggested Transfer(s):
    Out-
    Alcides - 1 million

    In-
    Vitaliy Vernydub - Ukraine - Metalurg Zp - 350k (22 years old)
    Dmytro Nevmyvaka - Ukraine - Metalurg Zp - 650k (26 year old)


    -----------


    Centre Midfield:


    Ruslan Rotan - Ukraine - (28 years old)
    Mario Holek - Czech Republic - (24 years old)
    Sergiy Nazarenko - Ukraine - (30 years old)
    Valeriy Fedorchuk - Ukraine - (21 years old)
    Eugene Shakhov - Ukraine - (19 years old)
    Jaba Kankava - Georgia - (24 years old)

    This is arguably the best area in the Dnipro side. Rotan is a great player, and any CM role seems to suit him. Holek is a great ball-winning midfielder too. Nazarenko is a good player and can make the difference when brought on in the last 15 minutes.Shakhov is a great talent and must be given game time. Fedorchuk is also a nice talent, but won't get as much time as Shakhov, so I suggest loaning him out. Kankava is dead wood and should be gotten rid of immediately. You could increase the depth here by signing a ball-winner to cover for Holek.

    Suggested Transfers:
    Out-
    Jaba Kankava - 300k
    Valeriy Fedorchuk - Loan

    In-
    Christian Romaric - Ivory Coast - Sevilla - 1.4 million (26 years old)


    -----------


    Wingers:


    Eugene Konoplyanka - Ukraine - LW (20 years old)
    Dmytro Lyopa - Ukraine - LW (21 years old)
    Sergiy Kravchenko - Ukraine - LW (27 years old)
    Giuliano - Brazil - RW (20 years old)
    Matheus - Brazil - W L/R (27 years old)
    Osmar Ferreyra - Argentina - W L/R (27 years old)
    Maxym Kalinichenko - Ukraine - RW -(31 years old)

    You have one of the brightest young Ukrainian talents in Eugene Konoplyanka who is backed up adequately by Kravchenko. Another January acquisition of Juande Ramos, superstar Giuliano is your first choice RW. Osmar Ferreyra is also a very versatile winger who can play on either side and is solid cover. Ramos also signed Matheus from Braga, but I don't think he is worth his wages and should be loaned out if you can, else sell him in January/second season. Kalinichenko is adequate and like Nazarenko in CM, he can also light it up in the last 15 minutes as a super-sub. You also have 21 year old versatile Dmytro Lyopa, its your choice whether to keep him or loan him out. No signings needed here for the time being, but you should find a RW to replace Kalinichenko for the next season.

    Suggested Transfers:
    Out-
    Dmytro Lyopa - Loan
    Matheus - Loan (Ensure that there are future buy-out clauses)


    -----------


    Strikers:


    Eugene Seleznyov - Ukraine (26 years old)
    Olexandr Gladkyi - Ukraine (22 years old)
    Volodymyr Gomenyuk - Ukraine (24 years old)
    Olexiy Belik - Ukraine (29 years old)

    You have one of Ukraine's best players, your vice-captain, great target man Eugene Seleznyov. This is the guy you must rely on to hit the back of the net. Gladkyi is pretty similar to Seleznyov, but has speed on his side. Gomenyuk is decent backup, but its your choice to keep him or generate some nice funds by selling him. Belik is must-sell though, he's 29 and is of no use for your side. A good poacher or two to partner Seleznyov would be good here.

    Suggested Transfers:
    Out-
    Olexiy Belik - 60k
    Volodymyr Gomenyuk - 350k

    In-
    Vitaliy Balashov - Ukraine - Chornomorets - 350k (19 year old)
    Roman Bezus - Ukraine - Vorskla - 1 million - (20 year old)
    Alexey Rudenok - Belarus - BATE - 100k - (17 year old)


    -----------


    4.Staff and Training
    First things first, Dnipro have shit scouts and shit physios, so go on a sacking spree and offer mutual termination to all of them and sign these-

    Scouts:
    Barry Whitbread - Unattached - England
    Valeiry Porkuyan - Chornomorets - Ukraine

    Physios:
    Petr Novak - Sparta Prague - Czech Repbulic
    Olexandr Demchuk - Nyva Vinnytsya - Ukraine

    You have three assistant managers, sack all three. As for the coaches, sack all with the exception of Marcos Alvarez (4.5 star fitness) and Pedro Jaro (5 star GK).

    Signings-
    Roberto Rojas - Unattached - Chile - Assistant Manager- 4 star Tactical
    Michel Bertinchamps - Tubize - Belgium - Fitness Coach - 4.5 star Fitness
    Juan Jose Lasuen - Baskonia - Spain - GK Coach - 4.5 star GK
    Massimo Bonini - Unattached - San Marino - Coach - 4 star defending
    Robert Prosinecki - Unattached - Croatia - Coach - 4 star Ball Control
    Dinko Jelicic - NK Dinamo - Croatia - Caoch - 4 star Shooting
    Volodymyr Khohlov - Metalurg Zp - Ukraine - Coach - 3.5 star Attacking

    Training Schedules:
    Alongside good staff, a good training schedule is also required to develop your players. For this I recommend Paetoja's training schedules found HERE.

    5.Other

    Don't sign too many foreigners - In season 1, you are allowed to play maximum 7 non-Ukrainians in your starting 11. But this number gradually goes on decreasing per season, so it is best to control the number of foreigners you have.

    Youth Facilities - Ask your board to upgrade your youth facilities, this is normally accepted.

    Shakhov,Fedorchuk,Denchuk and Lyopa - These guys would be the backbone of your team in future. Give them maximum game-time and have them tutored by players like Nazarenko and Kalinichenko.

    Scout,Scout and Scout - Have your scouts travel to nations like Peru,Uruguay,Romania and South Africa. Great bargains and Wonderkid regens could be found there



    NOW UPDATED FOR PATCH 11.3

    Thanks,

    Hell.

    Very good guide and a great team for people who are bored of FM (seems like there are many these days)...you have a good domestic challenge (breaking up the big 2) and a good European challenge (I bet it'd be very difficult to win the Champions League with a Ukrainian team).

    Ok thanks, will add him now.

  8. Good team to start with, I tried a game with them. Couldn't get Gladyki and Seleznyov to work up front, so sold one of them.. Good luck though.

    That was a problem I suffered too, then I played Seleznyov as target man and Balashov as poacher and It worked as a charm. Gladkyi and Seleznyov both are target men type players., thats why the problem

    Yep, I ended up selling one of them, both talented target men, hard to make a partnership out of.

  28. Started a game the other day after reading this, Doing alright in third behind Shaktar and Metalist(weird I know) quality striker in Bezus he's my top scorer ;D followed the guide but moved to a 4-2-3-1 deep formation, works a charm.

    If you play Bezus as ST in that formation, where does Seleznyov play?

  30. Quote Originally Posted by hellroker View Post

    don't really like playing with target men, Seleznyov powers his shots too often and won't change when I asked him to, Bezus is a monster, he's reasonably tall and got more pace and finishing. I made all the same signings as you I think though.

  31. Im playing this career im second in the league behond dinamo kiev the main problem i am finding is that Rusol keeps scoring own goals and getting sent off. In 14 games hes had 3 red cards and scored 2 own goals.

  32. very nice guide nice to see some one eles go for a ukraine team

    Wow, this never happens. Rusol is one of those guys you can rely on, try warning him?

    Yeah to be fair other than that he has been really solid just a little disapointed it cost me my big games. I lost to shakthor because of his own goal and in the game against melalist he got a red card and an own goal. Then he got sent off in europe against porto

    Thought I'd post my progress so far, came 3rd first season, morale decreased after a 7-0 aggregate loss to Arsenal (who apparently came 3rd in their Champions League Group) in the Europa League Quarters and team lost a few pts, a few careless draws and losses to the big 2.

    Building a new Ukrainian Powerhouse: Dnipro-ukrainian-premier-league-information_-league-table-.png

    Board gave me 19 million to spend In Jan, and well I spent them to bolster my defence mainly, signing Kaboul and Mikari, for RB and LB

    Building a new Ukrainian Powerhouse: Dnipro-dnipro-dnipropetrovsk-transfers_-history-2.png

    Here is Reimond Manco, a Peruvian winger I signed when Ferreyra was out for the rest of the season

    Pretty much a similar amount was given in Season 2, so spent it on two Brazilians.

    Building a new Ukrainian Powerhouse: Dnipro-neto-profile_-attributes-.png

    Building a new Ukrainian Powerhouse: Dnipro-bernardo-profile_-attributes-.png

    Clubs like Manchester Utd have expressed interest in my star winger Konoplyanka, 15 million or GTFO.

  37. any change of tactics ect for people using the lfc transfer update? just wondering, great guide btw

  38. I am seriously considering giving Dnipro a go. I haven't played FM in like a month. So I hope it will be an interesting challenge, as I haven't managed in Eastern Europe before.

  39. Ever since I read about the Dnipro maniacs, I've been put off managing Dnipro

  40. i've started with Dnipro and am currently third place behind Metalist and who else but shakhtar. i am using the patch with the winter transfers so i have Giuliano Matheus and Inkoom. I made a couple of purchases including Lacina Traore to partner with Seleznyov and they are mint together. My starting 11:
    GK- Renan Ribeiro
    RB- Samuel Inkoom
    LB- Vitaly Denisov
    CB- Andryi Rusol, Eugene Cheberyachko
    CM- Ruslan Rotan, Sergiy Nazarenko
    RAM- Giuliano
    LAM- Matheus or Konoplyanka
    ST- Lacina Traore , Eugene Seleznyov
    Sorry for long post

    nice update, Matheus doesn't seem to be listed in your wingers list even though you do recommend to sell him

  44. If I did any Ukraine save, I'd do it with dnipro for their viking logo (me thinks) and their colors (love me some blue!)

    Very good, Lugano should be a top player for you. Instead of Morimoto you should have got someone like Balashov or Laercio. Devic is a good player, but where will you play him? Konoplyanka on the left and Giuliano on the right I suppose? So where do you play Devic?
