Quite a big update this time. Some of which I can
thank Doorzon who has been translating the web site to Dutch
and providing corrections and additions along the way.
Anyhow here what is new:
- Modified the Stadium planner so now you can selected
attendance according to divisions making it much easier to
work out how to plan your stadium.
- Added a section on "Club Membership" to give a little more
detail of what club members.
- Further updates on Coaches and Training expanding on the
new coach system.
- Added a section how the qualifiers work at the end of
season in "Matches and Leagues"
- Tactics and Matches and Leagues have also had some minor
Here is a link to Doorzon Dutch translation, in due course I
will put some nice clean navigation icons to take you there

Updated the MZ calendar that shows what events happens on
what days on the "Getting started" page.

Finally updated the "Coach and Training" section to reflect
the new system. Also added a few more bits in the
"Players" section concerning form.
12th November 2007
The MZ transfer and coach system has changed
and so the information on the coach system in the FAQ is
currently out of date. I'm still trying to get my head
around it myself before I will try to write anything
22nd September 2007 <IMPORTANT>
Welcome to the new home of the FAQ new
site. Bookmark this page as I cant guaranty how long
my old URL will keep working.
20th September 2007
Having some difficulty with my ISP. If by the end of
this month there isnt a further update here then you can
assume the problems are resolved and the site will move to
http://www.mentaldog.com/mz . Currently this
link doesnt work.
Yes, nothing new for a while. Done a
variety of small changes that didn't warrant an update until
their were enough of them. Added new section in
"Getting Started", Youths and Coach, Tactics and Training.
15th July 2007
Created a small application for exporting the player list
into XML. As its standard XML you can import this file
your application or if you like using spreadsheets you can
get Excel to load it.
It exports a lot of information, much more than is
available from the Alt view players page including some
useful stuff like which tactic are they in, which country
are they from, if they are injured, if they are at
training camp, ... well lots of really. 47 fields
worth of info.
You can download it from here:
To use it type from a command window:
mzplayers -user user -password
password -o filename
user is you managerzone username
password is your managerzone password
filename is the filename where you going to store
things e.g. (team.xml)
Hope you find this useful. Future releases will include
other stuff including training reports, matches, etc.
If you have requests let me know.

Played about with a system for getting player info

checking your own scores too. Had all sorts of
permissions issue but finally got Internet Explorer version

useful let me know and I can make it a permanent link from

quicker navigating around. If you find any problems
let me know.

be working further updates on the stadium planner as
well as some pages that people collaborated.
Hope you like the new look, like to say it only took
me 5 mins but well it didnt.....
Update 3 for the day. Got lots feedback and
corrections. Special thanks to big_green_shoe
for edits and some donations from his web site, Matttombstone for edits and this new
article on Player Skills and
for wanttostrokemymonkey for work on the
numbers for the new stadium calculator (coming soon).
Update 4 for the day. New
stadium calculator is up.
Its pretty accurate on income and seems totally accurate on
facilities costs but it does take into account the clinic
but more feedback required. A further thanks to
wanttostrokemypuppy who spent an hour or (probably a
lot) more checking the numbers and helping me getting them
Lastly, if you want to see how your stadium evolves check
