Vitaliy Mokosiy - True Football Manager author

My dear readers, this time I decided to make a post that will get you to know me better. Yes, it's kind of off-topic. But I think long-term readers can be really interested in some facts of my biography. As a result this post should make True Football Manager blog more humane.

8 facts you didn't know about me

- I was born in Cherkassy in 1982 but live in Kyiv now (where Dinamo Kyiv is the leading club).

- My profession is a software developer. Currently I am a IT-expert with more than 8 years of experience.

- The most amazing football match I've ever watched being at stadium: Dinamo Kyiv – Barcelona 3:0 (Champions League group stage, 1997).

- In real life I support all Ukrainian teams and Arsenal from London.

- My first football management game – Football Limited.

- My first football management game from SI Games – Championship Manager 97/98. I remember I started my first game and chose Arsenal…

- I love playing badminton and volleyball. Have trainings twice per week. I am fond of table tennis as well.

- I dream to visit London some day, sit at Emirates stadium, and enjoy Premier League match of Arsenal!

Feel free to ask me any personal questions in the comments!


P.S. Attention: I will be absent for 4 days because of my short vacation to Carpathians.

Interesting that 10% of voters play only 3 months in FM11 during one real life's month. It's slower than meУлыбка. You know I tend to play 1 season per month being as the most of Football Manager gamers do if we analyse the poll results.

New poll

New poll has already started! It's very actual as for me because it's about ambiguous Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho. Please vote and tell your opinion (check the right sidebar of this blog). Poll's finish date is 12.05.2011.
