2058 - November and December:
Into the year 2059 with Scottish club Rangers, aiming to retain our Ladbrokes Premiership title as well as fighting for the William Hill Scottish Cup.

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/tSUGQi4.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/KPXkGWc.png

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/uIAM4Bp.png

An Old Firm derby got things underway on New Year's Day, Ian Quinn scored the first of his nine competitive goals in these two months; it came on 73mins to secure a big win v. Celtic! After a friendly victory v. East Kilbride (0–5), we won back-to-back matches in the Premiership. St. Johnstone hosted us on 18 January and were defeated 1–2, Quinn and Juan Manuel Bartolotta netted goals. Those two were on the scoresheet again days later as we beat Partick Thistle away from home, 2–4; Nicolae Vlad and new signing Brian Brison also scored. That made it six wins in a row, a streak that was ended by Ladbrokes Championship side Hamilton Academical next time out.

Hamilton gave us a very good test at Ibrox Stadium and got themselves a replay following a one-one tie, Lukas Gabriel scored our goal in a match I rested key players for. Ahead of the Scottish Cup replay, we had league tests versus Aberdeen (H) and Heart of Midlothian (A). Aberdeen didn't bother us as goals from Elliot Campion, Quinn and Stefan Eisen got us a dominant victory. Vs. Hearts, we didn't turn up but did keep our undefeated run of eleven matches going as we drew 1–1 with Brison dramatically equalising on 89mins. That unbeaten streak was then ended by Hamilton, in the cup replay. They won 4–2, despite having a man sent off at 2–1; Adam Turnbull scored all four for them, too. Not our day.

They currently lead the Championship, but pretty poor to be eliminated to them. We didn't lose any of the next three in the league though, scoring twelve times in the process. On 8 February, we battered relegation favourites Greenock Morton 5–1 at Ibrox - Bartolotta got a brace along with strikes from Quinn, Vlad and youngster Jordan Johnston. Johnston scored again in the following fixture, in a 2–2 draw with title rivals Dundee United - I was happy with a point as it kept our lead at the top and we gained a point on Celtic who lost. In February's final encounter, we scored another five goals in a 0–5 victory at the Ross County Stadium versus Ross County - Quinn got an outstanding hat-trick.

As of right now, we are a massive ten points clear in first place - Celtic are the team ten off us, while Dundee Utd are eleven points behind. With ten fixtures to play either side of the split, we really shouldn't be throwing this away - anything other than a second straight Premiership title from this position would be a disgrace. It would be our sole trophy, as we're out of all other competitions in the UEFA Champions League, the Scottish Cup and the Betfred Cup.

Squad statistics are below along with the two months worth of awards, which include my back-to-back Manager of the Month awards for January and February. Another noteworthy thing from February was the fact I was offered two international jobs in the shape of Nigeria and South Africa - I rejected both. That's the third time the Nigerian FA have approached me throughout the save while it's the second time the South Africans have come with an offer. Flattering, but I'm not interested in international management at the moment.

In the transfer window, I signed two players while allowing four to go.

INS:
Brian Brison (£300k, FW, PSV)
Timothée Durand (£7m, CB, Anderlecht)

Brison was offered to me by his agent, following his transfer listing in Eindhoven. He is an Aruba international striker who has stunningly scored 45 goals in 45 caps, for Aruba that's insane. His domestic tally in the Netherlands with various Dutch clubs was also excellent with over 100 goals in just over 200 apps; he has just turned 32 but has had a good impact with two goals, most notably that big leveller vs. Hearts. Durand is Pierluigi Gariboldi's replacement, I'll explain his outgoing shortly but Durand has been a fantastic replacement - very pleased.

OUTS (notable):
Paul Gibson (Loan, FW, Falkirk)
Pierluigi Gariboldi (£20m, CB, Bayern Munich)

Gibson was at the bottom of my striker pecking order, so after the arrival on Brison he wasn't needed but still holds potential at the age of 24 so decided to let him go on loan for game time. Gariboldi is the big departure, but it was one that was all on me - I made the call. I signed him in July/August 2057 for £11.75m (£20m+ in add-ons) from AFC Bournemouth, despite that hefty fee and glowing media/scout reports I was never convinced in him - he is only 25 but was so inconsistent and conceded loads of needless free-kicks and penalties. I decided to cash-in with big clubs interested and replace him with Durand (23 yo), and so far it has been the perfect move - Durand has started very, very well.

2059 - March and April:
After gaining a ten point lead at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership with Rangers in Scotland, we headed into March and April aiming to further cement our chances of a second straight league title.

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/S1kGdFF.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/O0cnexF.png

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/mVfrKcT.png

February was ended with a five-goal win over Ross County, March began with a 4–0 win over Falkirk - Quinn scored the opener before Juan Manuel Bartolotta netted a unique triple penalty hat-trick; also missed a fourth - Falkirk were giving away spot-kicks for fun. The goals continued in the following fixture, a 0–12 friendly win in Kirkintilloch over Harestanes - Bartolotta and Quinn scored five each. Our return to competitive action was a bad one, we lost in the Premiership for the first time since late November as Hibernian defeated us at Easter Road; that's despite Bartolotta converting an early penalty to give us a lead. Our response was to beat Motherwell, 1–0 with Allan Willox netting.

Then came the penultimate Old Firm derby of the season, at Celtic Park on 6 April. They went a goal ahead before we scored another penalty to equalise, but they went onto score two further goals to keep their title chances alive. Just like after the Hibs loss, we returned to action by gaining three points - this time we dominated St. Johnstone and put four unanswered goals past the Perth-based outfit, Quinn scored his second hat-trick on the year. That was the end of the regular season, the split fixtures weren't to begin until the end of the month so we took a short tour of Norway with exhibition victories over Stabæk (0–4) and Vålerenga (0–3).

On 29 April, the two months finale was a match with second place Dundee United. A win would've taken us inches off securing the title, but Dundee Utd turned up to win 2–0 on home turf; disappointing performance from us. Celtic also won on that matchday. With four fixtures left to play, we remain top of the table but our ten point lead has shrunk to six points with Dundee Utd nearest and Celtic a point further behind. We can't win the league next time out vs. Aberdeen no matter what happens, but could secure it in the Old Firm derby with Celtic at Ibrox Stadium on 10 May - just like last season, we may win the trophy in a match with our fierce rivals.

2059 - May:
One month, four matches. After our ten point lead was cut down to six, we looked to regain ourselves to retain our Ladbrokes Premiership crown with Rangers in May 2059.

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/MrtKmgF.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/S3hqzIp.png

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/FajGe8C.png

May began with defeat, away to one of the sides chasing us for the title - Dundee United. They won 2–0, it wasn't really a contest - lacklustre on our part. In the following fixture, Allan Willox got the game's only goal in a win over Aberdeen away. Unfortunately, we suffered two league defeats in three fixtures as we lost the final Old Firm derby of the season to Celtic - our nerves were starting to show with these sloppy results, but thankfully we could still claim our second straight Premiership title next time out versus Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium. It is very lucky we had that ten point gap in the first place, otherwise we would've been screwed.

Against Hibs, we finally turned up for the first time since the regular season's finale vs. St. Johnstone. Hibernian were defeated 4–1, Quinn taking the headlines with a brace. 2058–59 Ladbrokes Premiership champions! Extremely pleased to secure back-to-back trophies, although some gloss was taken off it due to that end of season form - should've won it by more points and earlier. Being champions is all that matters, though. Due to a change in regulations, first place has qualified us directly for next season's UEFA Champions League group stage; rather than the third qualifying round. Very nice!

All the usual screenshots below, including the awards - I won the Writers' Manager of the Year award for second time in as many years.

2059 - June:
Bonus update.

http://i.imgur.com/zI50QR8.png

I have decided to resign as Rangers manager. Want a new challenge. After four years with the club between 2055 and 2059 which included back-to-back Ladbrokes Premiership titles in my final two campaigns, it's the right time to move on. I'm hoping my next job will be in England, my homeland, for the first time in the save. My manager is now aged 63 so only has a maximum of seven years left in him, so I want to spend the majority of that in the Premier League south of the border.

2059 to 2060 - The Job Search:
After leaving Rangers in Scotland, I go in search for my first job in England.

http://i.imgur.com/zI50QR8.png

Due to my aim to manage in the Premier League, the job search was a rather short one. Two jobs that were almost available were West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion, both had their manages at 'very insecure/secure'. I declared my interest in both but nothing came of it as they stuck with their current managers. Two big jobs then became open as Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United lost their managers, neither gave me an interview. At around this point, Sky Bet Championship outfit Stoke City offered me an interview without me applying; I rejected their advances. Then a trio of jobs had insecurities: Arsenal, Everton and Swansea City. Everton became open first.

I applied and declared my interest, their fans liked the idea of me managing the club. On 10 January 2060, Everton offered me an interview. I attended, I felt it went very well which turned out to be the truth as they offered me the role five days later...

https://i.imgur.com/qN4UZN5.png

I am the new manager of Everton! My first job in my homeland, it has only taken until 2060! Looking forward to managing in the Premier League - a dream. Everton have never been relegated in the save, remaining in Premier League ever since 2016. They've not won it but have won the Carabao Cup (x4), Emirates FA Cup (x1), Community Shield (x1) and, in 2033 and 2035, the UEFA Europa League; and subsequently the UEFA Super Cup. This season, they sit 16th. Nine points away from the relegation places with Fulham, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday far adrift. I take over with them in the FA Cup, Tottenham Hotspur (A) to come in R4. They're out of the Carabao Cup.

Congratz on the new job in Everton.

And nice work with Rangers

Why can you only play to you are 70 years? Is it the game, or is it yourself that wants to stop?

Thanks @b0nb0n! Just a self-imposed rule for myself, for realism - I plan (if all goes well with the save file etc.) to add a new manager in the same game world after my current one retires. As far as I've heard, you can continue with a manager for as long as you like - I'm not 100% sure on that though, this is the furthest I have ever reached in one save file.

2060 - January and February:
The first two months (roughly) of my new role with English Premier League outfit Everton are over. Here's how I've started.

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/k4lO86x.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/HvEY3ae.png

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/YCUgwqO.png/

My first match in English football was on 17 January 2060 in the Premier League against Newcastle United, we only just avoided defeat on my debut as Steve Wildsmith snatched us a point on 88mins following Newcastle taking the lead on 14mins. Back-to-back defeats followed away to Southampton and Chelsea, two high-flying sides. Scott Orr scored for us vs. Southampton but we lost 2–1 while Chelsea won 3–0 at Stamford Bridge. One week on from the Chelsea loss, we faced their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round at New White Hart Lane. We got a replay following a goalless draw.

The best performance of my reign so far, Tottenham are a force nowadays after winning the title in 2054 and 2058 so to get a draw on the road to force a replay was credible. Before said replay, we had a league match with this season's surprise team, according to the media, Queens Park Rangers who sat in the top ten. It was an enthralling battle which ended drawn at 3–3, QPR had led 1–3 so I was content to get a point by fighting back in my 1500th career match. Still no victory after five matches in charge, though. The wait went on as we lost consecutively to North London duo Tottenham and Arsenal.

Spurs won the FA Cup replay 0–1, Arsenal beat us 3–0 despite being down the bottom of the league. Due to the FA Cup exit, we had a week off on 22 February. I decided to take a trip to Portugal and face a friendly with Braga B. We won 4–0, so no matter what happens I've technically won a match as Everton manager. January and February's final match was the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park with Liverpool. They're one of the league's best teams, so I feared the worst given our form but we dramatically took a point away from the fixture thanks to a 91st-minute goal from Iordanis Gintidis.

Heading into March, we sit 16th in the Premier League; the same place I took over in but now only clear of the relegation zone by four points rather than nine points. I need a competitive win - quick! One award along with the squad statistics and board expectations are below.

I had a little bit of the transfer window to take part in. I signed four players while allowing one to go.

INS:
Adrien Gerard (£550k, LM, Paris Saint-Germain)
Manuel Fernandes (Loan, CM, West Ham United)
Manuel Pinto (£1.8k, CM, Cinfães)
Makis Kelaidis (Loan, CB, Chelsea)

Gerard and Fernandes were my planned signings, both have had OK impacts but nothing game-changing. Pinto was a deal that was already arranged before I took over, subsequently left on loan. Kelaidis was a very late loan signing from Chelsea, our defence looks very poor at the moment and he's the only player available that I felt was good enough to replace what we have - yet to see.

OUT:
Manuel Pinto (Loan, CM, Burnley)

As previously mentioned. Decent youth prospect, good loan to Sky Bet Championship side Burnley.

2060 - March and April:
My first months in charge of Everton couldn't have gone much worse. Eight matches, zero wins. Gotta improve, which we looked to do in March and April.

March started how February ended, with a draw - this time away to Leicester City, Iordanis Gintidis with a double. The month continued with consecutive Premier League defeats to Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur, both beating us by keeping us from scoring. Then, on 3 April, the miracle arrived - we won a competitive football match! Admittedly, it was against bottom of the table Huddersfield Town but we seriously needed three points. Mirza Handzic and Léo Roy with the crucial goals. After that, we had the perfect opportunity to make it two wins in a row by facing second bottom Middlesbrough. However, it was to be yet another loss in my tenure.

We went two goals ahead by the ninth minute, it remained that way until 66mins when I, stupidly I know, stopped going attacking and went more defensive which summoned all Middlesbrough's footballing ability that has been mysteriously non-existent all season for them to comeback and score four goals in thirty-three minutes. First time they've scored more than two in a game, of course. Our most recent two league matches since have been drawn, at home to Brighton & Hove Albion and away to Birmingham City; Makis Kelaidis with a late equaliser in the latter. There are three matches left to play, we're eight points clear of the drop so should be fine.

The board are still happy enough with me, job status remains at 'stable'. As long as we don't suffer relegation, I should be OK. I also signed a player, Derek McGinn on the free transfer deadline day. I didn't realise our squad registration was full, so not able to register him. Thankfully, I signed him as a Under 18s manager/player so he can just concentrate on those duties before his retirement in July. Squad stats and awards below.

2060 - May:
Three final matches to face to end my first six months with Everton in England's top-flight. Could we officially survive relegation?

May got off to an truly ridiculous start as I secured just the second win of my Everton reign as we came out on top in a nine-goal thriller at Goodison Park versus West Ham United. West Ham took a two-goal lead early on, prior to Mirza Handzic and Sam Fowler bringing the scores back level right before the half-time whistle. Everton took the lead again in half two but Iordanis Gintidis levelled it all up for 3–3 on 65mins. That wasn't it though as West Ham went ahead for the third time in the match for 3–4. However, it was us who went away with the three points after a dramatic thirteen minute comeback via Léo Roy and Juan José Martínez goals; Martínez netting on 90mins. Utter scenes!

A rare bright moment in my tenure, which soon dissipated following back-to-back losses to end the 2059–60 campaign to AFC Bournemouth and Manchester United on the road; we scored in both encounters but also conceded three in both. At the end of my first (half a) season, I guide Everton to a 16th-place finish - the exact same position I took over the club in in January. Seriously bad run to start life with Everton, but at least we didn't get relegated. My job status stands at 'insecure' but I should be OK to retain my job, but I probably need to hit the ground running next season. Big changes needed to the squad. Usual screenshots can be viewed below:

2060 - July to September:
After a horror show of a first six months with Everton that saw us narrowly avoid relegation, I headed into my first full season on Merseyside with pressure to bring some sort of success.

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/V5brv8P.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/efLVStv.png

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/HNeivun.png

In pre-season, I took the team on a trip to East Asia along with home friendlies versus Bayern Munich and Antalyaspor and friendlies in Portugal and Spain. In East Asia, we won two of our three matches against Benfica (Macau) and Kitchee (Hong Kong) but lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers on neutral turf. In England, we lost to Bayern but beat Antalyaspor. In Portugal, we beat Cinfães in a friendly which was scheduled as part of Manuel Pinto's arrival before I joined. The friendly in Spain was versus Real Madrid as part of three-time UEFA Champions League winner Tiago Pascoal's testimonial. Real narrowly won 3–2. A mixed pre-season.

Our competitive season got underway with a trip to SW6 to meet Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Cottagers took the points by winning 2–0 - starting the season how we spent most of the last! That was followed by a 0–5 home humiliation at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, who led 0–3 at the interval. We found solace days later in the Carabao Cup as we advanced to round three with a dominant four-nil home victory over Sky Bet Championship outfit Port Vale. After, a truly bonkers football match arrived as we hosted nine-time Premier League champions Chelsea at Goodison Park on 28 August 2060. A twelve-goal thriller would ensue.

It ended 6–6 (six! six!). Ridiculous. New signing Mohamed Selim gave us an early lead, but Chelsea soon went back on top by going 1–4 by 24mins. Sam Fowler made it 2–4 by half-time, we soon made it 3–4 but Chelsea almost immediately scored a fifth for 3–5. Selim, Pedro Monsalvete and Adrien Gerard each then scored for us in seventeen crazy minutes between 65mins and 82mins for 6–5. The drama wasn't over, as Chelsea hit back yet again via Nahuel Vendakis to make it 6–6. Mad fixture. Another draw followed which didn't have quite the same number of goals, but still had a rather entertaining four-goal match-up with Wolves. It ended 2–2 at Molineux. A week later, Southampton beat us 0–2.

After five Premier League fixtures, we went five winless with our only win coming in the Carabao Cup. On 22 September, we got our second win of the season but it again came in the Carabao Cup against lower-league opposition. In the third round, we met Rochdale of Sky Bet League 1 away. We scored six on the road at the Crown Oil Arena, advancing with ease to the next round. Cup F.C., it seems. September's final match was a league meeting with Crystal Palace, they condemned us to our fourth defeat of the competitive season. To recap: After six PL games, we are 19th. We remain in the Carabao Cup, Birmingham City (Championship) to come in the fourth round. FA Cup yet to start.

Gotta improve, or I could find myself sacked. Usual screenshots below:

Transfer recap.

INS:
Sam Brown (£6.5m, LB, Middlesbrough)
Isaac Acheampong (Free, CM, Newcastle United)
Jed Gill (Loan, RM, Tottenham Hotspur)
Kléber (£7.75m, RB, Tottenham Hotspur)
Mohamed Selim (Free, CAM, Manchester City)

Brown and Acheampong are familiar faces, two players I managed during my tenure with Rangers between 2055 and 2059. Brown is a left-back from recently-relegated Boro, had a release clause due to that. Acheampong I had on loan at Rangers, I trust him - a central midfielder on a free from Newcastle. Gill and Kléber arrived from Spurs, Gill is a back-up right winger while Kléber comes directly in at right-back. Selim was a late signing, good looking attacking midfielder. Despite our pretty hideous form, I'm happy with these signings.

OUTS (notable):
Kelvin Donkor (Retired, GK, -)
Nicky Coates-Fenney (£17.5m, RB, Newcastle United)
Tiago Lemos (Free, CM, Havre)
Elton Rashica (Free, CM, Paços de Ferreira)
Lazar Goljovic (Free, RB, Sparta Prague)
Dragan Antic (Free, CAM, Deportivo La Coruña)

Donkor was back-up 'keeper, retired. Coates-Fenney was the big outgoing, disgruntled right-back who, despite being extremely talented on paper, didn't really produce for me and was being disruptive - Newcastle gave a very good fee. Lemos, Rashica, Goljovic and Antic were ageing players I didn't use much and were taking big wages for no performance in return so decided to let them go at the end of their contracts. Coates-Fenney the only loss, but Kléber doing just as good a job.

October got going in the best possible way - with a rare Premier League victory, the first of this season! We beat AFC Bournemouth on 2 October, Mohamed Selim netting prior to a brace from Léo Roy. Big, big win! Three consecutive defeats followed as Swansea City and Manchester City made us concede eight goals in two matches while Birmingham City, of the Sky Bet Championship, knocked us out of the Carabao Cup by hitting three past us. Embarrassing form. After that Birmingham loss, I felt my time with Everton was going to end very soon - either through a sacking or a resignation. It didn't, I decided I won't give up on Everton unless the board sack me.

Spirits around the club were raised on 31 October as we secured our second Premier League win by beating Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, Scott Orr and Selim scoring either side of an own-goal from Sunderland's Ty Kelly. Like the win over Bournemouth, we continued with losing matches. Arsenal and Liverpool defeated us in the two matches following, by an aggregate of 5–1. The year's penultimate month ended with a draw, a goalless draw - very rare, especially for us. It came at home to Brighton & Hove Albion. Overall, a slightly improved two months than August and September - two actual real league wins, extraordinary! It leaves us in the familiar position of 16th.

Carabao Cup over, Emirates FA Cup yet to start. Two awards and squad statistics are below:

2060 - December:
Just December's stuff to bring you with Everton. Here's why.

http://i.imgur.com/zI50QR8.png

I've been sacked as Everton manager.

https://i.imgur.com/YH7BAOP.png

Fixtures:
https://i.imgur.com/F7bHWaq.png

Table:
https://i.imgur.com/iPqkyku.png

Six defeats in seven. Simply dreadful. The funny thing is, at the beginning of December we actually started to play OK. Admittedly we lost four for four to start the month, but only by an overall score of 4–0; four straight one goal to zero losses. Damaging defeats to relegation rivals Queens Park Rangers and Hull City. Prior to the Hull match, the board scheduled a board meeting to discuss my future. I attended, said my piece and they said theirs. It ended with them giving me a points target of 7pts from our following five fixtures. Hilariously unlikely, especially given we would face three of the top four. Hull was game one of five, they were bottom. Doomed.

We'd beat Fulham to give some hope, but losses to Newcastle United and Manchester United saw me sacked as Everton manager - days after my one-year anniversary with the club. Disappointing, but a long time coming in truth. As for what's next, as I previously mentioned my current manager is close to retirement so probably has one last job left. I plan for that to be at another English league club, whether that be Premier League or Sky Bet Championship. On that note, at the start of December, I was strongly linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers job (struggling like Everton). I didn't comment, only wanting the job if I were sacked. Which I have been, but the Wolves job has been taken by one Aymeric Laporte.

A few jobs are taking my eye, so stay tuned. If I don't get an English league job, I may decided to have a crack in Australia or the United States for this manager's managerial finale. Or, very unlikely, I might retire on the spot. We'll see.

2061 - The Job Search:
In what is probably the final job search for this manager, soon to be aged 65, I went in search for job number sixteen in 2061.

After my sacking from Everton, my idea was to find a new job in the English leagues; Premier League or Sky Bet Championship. Two jobs took my attention: Birmingham City (Championship) and Queens Park Rangers (Premier League). Birmingham were top of the Championship earlier in the season but have dropped to fifth, however they're eight points inside the play-offs. QPR are in a higher division, but are struggling just like Everton were. I didn't fancy that again, so my aim was to get the Birmingham job. I applied for both, Birmingham were the first to get back to me with an interview shortly followed by QPR. Both went good, but QPR had a director of football which is a no-no for me. Birmingham then approached...

https://i.imgur.com/Of6VJa3.png

Birmingham City are my new club! It *should* be a much more enjoyable job than Everton was, but it will still be stressful as the board want automatic promotion (top two) which is eight points away. Coming into February, that'll be tough to claw back but who knows! As long as we achieve play-offs, I reckon the board will be happy enough. Birmingham were in the Premier League last season, hence the high objective. In this entire save, they've only won one trophy - the 2043 Championship title. As for the now, as stated they're fifth and are still in the Emirates FA Cup. Looking forward to this.

2061 - January and February:
I have started my new role as Birmingham City's manager in the Sky Bet Championship.

https://i.imgur.com/rziDRXI.png

My debut as Birmingham boss was an extremely tough one - Liverpool, at Anfield, in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round. However, we had little to worry about, as we produced a stunning display to knock the ten-time winners out with a 1–2 win; Ron van Gerwen and Liam McCabe with the goals - we even went a goal down earlier on. My league bow came days later away to Macclesfield Town, which we also won 1–2. McCabe scoring again, after an opener from James Williams. On the following Saturday, we made it three straights wins and three straight three-one winning margins as Millwall were defeated at St. Andrew's after strikes from Rúben Mota and Aleksandar Tadic.

Our three-match winning streak became five in a row, Tadic made it two goals in as many games as he netted the winner away to Bristol City on 88mins. The fifth straight win came on 15 February at home to Derby County, Mota and McCabe (x2) scoring. Five consecutive victories to begin my reign in the West Midlands! It wouldn't become six in a row after Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur done what Liverpool couldn't as they eliminated us out of the FA Cup, they won extremely convincingly 4–0 at New White Hart Lane despite us not playing too badly. That loss didn't derail us, as we've won our most recent Championship fixtures on 23 and 26 February respectively.

Dagenham & Redbridge were beat 0–3, Steven Bowles astonishingly scoring a three-minute hat-trick in the second half - as a second half substitute, incredible impact! To end February 2061, we won 3–0 again but this time it came against automatic promotion rivals Ipswich Town - Sacha Martin and Karel Plachy scored absolute belters to go with another goal for McCabe. That means my first month and a bit in charge of Birmingham City has yielded seven victories from a possible eight. Outstanding stuff. It closes the gap to the automatic promotion spots from eight points, when I took charge, to just one point now - we're even six points off top spot. More notable: 15pts inside play-offs!

Usual screenshots below, including the awards; one of which was won by me - February's Manager of the Month award!

I signed two players in the transfer window, I joined late during it but I didn't need/want many acquisitions anyway. Vaclav Urbanek is a central attacking midfielder who joins on loan from Manchester United, the third loan signing by the club from United this season after Tadic and the so far unused (by me) striker Artur Miranda. Ian Thorne also arrived, a free agent attacking midfielder who was most recently with Liverpool. Both been good so far. Three left, all non-notable.

2061 - March and April:
The penultimate months of the 2060–61 campaign. We, Birmingham City, headed into it in a promotion fight with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Norwich City and Stoke City.

Fixtures:

Table:

Competitions:
https://i.imgur.com/P9X2k0n.png

We ended February 2061 with three consecutive three-nil wins, that was put to four as we beat Aston Villa in the Second City derby. Liam McCabe, Rúben Mota and Sacha Martin scoring, a fantastic win at Villa Park! Days after, I faced the biggest match of my Birmingham tenure so far - league leaders Nottingham Forest. McCabe netted on 19mins to subsequently secure us a massive three points, it took us a win away from Forest in the table. Sadly, that momentum was immediately tarnished as we conceded a late leveller at Plough Lane to AFC Wimbledon on 12 March to tie 1–1. We made amends with back-to-back 3–0 victories over Stoke City and Burnley respectively.

On 5 April, I lost for the first time as Birmingham manager in the Sky Bet Championship. Tom Hewitt and Roger Mellor scored three minutes apart from each other to give Cardiff City a win at St. Andrew's, ending my eleven-game unbeaten streak in the league. The lads stepped up massively across the month's final four fixtures as we went onto gain all twelve points possible. Middlesbrough and Grimsby Town were defeated over a busy two-game weekend, both by a scoreline of 2–1. After that, we got the better of Sheffield Wednesday and West Bromwich Albion by scoring six goals over the two matches. Four straight wins! McCabe netting four times throughout, top player.

As we beat West Brom, we sat second three points off leaders Forest but our closest challengers Norwich City (3rd) lost to Bradford City on that matchday, meaning we were four points clear of third with only two fixtures to fulfil. And who did we face on the penultimate day? Norwich City, of course. Avoid defeat, and we'd win promotion to the Premier League. That didn't happen, though, as we bottled it to lose 4–1 at Carrow Road. We weren't as bad as the scoreline looked, but Norwich wanted it far more. That puts them just one point off of us with one match to play. Forest subsequently won the title. On the last day, we face Bradford City (H) while Norwich take a trip to Watford.

A tense finale awaits! Awards/squad statistics below:

2061 - May:
One game to go. With the Sky Bet Championship title already won by Nottingham Forest, it was left to us, Birmingham City, and third place Norwich City to fight for the final automatic promotion spot.

Promotion! Our talisman Liam McCabe netted a hat-trick in the league finale at home to Bradford City to secure Birmingham their place back in the Premier League, a year on from relegation. We actually went a goal down to Bradford, I was fearing the worst but thankfully McCabe took his Championship goal tally to thirty-three (33! - 37 overall) to claw us back from death. It was needed too as Norwich City did their bit away to Watford by winning, so those McCabe goals were oh so precious!

Seven different awards were given to the players, they can be seen below with the end of season squad statistics.

And that is all this manager writes. I have decided to end this manager's journey here, it seems the best place for him to stop.

https://i.imgur.com/5f0yXEV.png

At the age of 65, I've decided for him to retire. After guiding them back to the Premier League, where they belong, it's a good time for a different manager, ideally younger, to turn them into a solid Premier League outfit. Here's hoping! As I've stated recently, this manager may be ending but the save world will (if all goes well) continue! I'll add a new manager a few years down the line, in a different set of leagues and a different background - that'll be in a separate blog post too!

I've loved this manager. Excellent career, which I'll recap in this blog post's final post. On a personal level, it is by far the furthest I have ever gone in Football Manager. I usually do a load of seasons before getting bored and starting a new one, but this career just kept going and going and the more I achieved the more I wanted to continue it. With that said, it's the perfect time to end this manager and start afresh.

Thanks for reading!

The End: Manager Recap:
This manager's career is over. Running from 2016 to 2061, I recap the career of myself before cracking on with a new manager in the very same game world from 2066.

http://i.imgur.com/zI50QR8.png

JOB 1: Albirex Niigata (S) (SIN) (2016 to 2017) Trophies: 3
I got lucky with my first job. I joined mid-season in the S. League with Albirex Niigata (S) leading the way in the table with half the season to go. Not only that, the League Cup was right on the doorstep - I subsequently won it, winning my first trophy within months. Not long later, I secured the league title. The Singaporean Cup alluded me, but a double in my first half a season in management was extremely fortunate but extremely delighting. In season two with Albirex, we missed out on the Singaporean Cup once again but also lost the league title on goal difference. There was some success though, as I won the League Cup again. Then resigned, enjoyed my short time there.

JOB 2: Persib (IDN) (2018 to 2023) Trophies: 3
After my time in Singapore, I then made the move to Indonesia to manage Persib - one of the top teams in the country. They had finished second the season before I joined, but expectations were high with a title challenge wanted. I kept them in a title race in my first season, but we missed the Super League title by four points. My second year in charge was a bit of a catastrophe as we dropped all the way down to 6th, admittedly only four points off second but that still wasn't good enough. Thankfully, the board didn't sack me. 2020, my third season, I regained 2nd. Then, in my last two years with Persib, I won back-to-back Super League titles as well as a domestic Super Cup. Success!

JOB 3: Eastern (HKG) (2023 to 2026) Trophies: 6
I decided to leave Persib after those league titles, in search of a new challenge. That new challenge was found in Hong Kong, with Eastern. One of the big boys in Hong Kong, they were struggling near the bottom of the eleven-team division with only a little while left in the season. I took over, got them a respectable (for the season) 6th. I made normal service resume in the following season, placing the club 2nd - missing the trophy by four points. We did win one trophy that season though, the 2024 League Cup. In 2025, we won the Premier League trophy as well as the Senior Challenge Shield. In 2026, we did the same but also won the League Cup again. Loved my time with Eastern.

JOB 4: Bucheon (KOR) (2026 to 2027) Trophies: 1
In my three previous jobs, it was a very enjoyable run as it was spent with top clubs in their respective countries/territories which meant we were challenging for titles which is always fun. However, job four was the first of the exact opposite! I joined K League Challenge side Bucheon in 2026, midway through the season. They were challenging for promotion to the K League Classic. My reign started extremely well, I won the K League Challenge and promotion. However, in the top-flight, it was an awful experience. I was sacked months into the season with the club rooted to the bottom. The first of the five sackings for this manager.

JOB 5: South China (HKG) (2027 to 2028) Trophies: 3
After that stuff in South Korea, I headed back to Hong Kong aiming to somewhat rebuild my reputation after failing in my first big job in one of Asia's top leagues. I signed for South China. I was there for just one season and won three trophies: FA Cup, League Cup and Community Cup. However, the league was a struggle as I guided them to 5th. Not all that great for a team that were reigning champions. Overall I enjoyed it, but it was nothing special.

JOB 6: Liaoning Hongyun (CHN) (2028 to 2029) Trophies: 0
Trophies returned in Hong Kong, so I decided to take another crack in Asia's elite. I went to China and managed Super League side Liaoning Hongyun. In season one, I signed midway through and they were fighting relegation. I managed to keep them up, but only via the relegation play-offs. Season two went just as bad, like Bucheon, I was sacked half way into the campaign with my team last in the Super League table and certain for the drop. I was sacked, for the second time in two years. Confidence firmly knocked. After this, I decided to leave Asian football for the first time and head to Europe.

JOB 7: Dynamo Bryansk (RUS) (2030) Trophies: 0
My first European adventure was with Russian First Division (tier two) team Dynamo Bryansk. Unfortunately, it was a nightmare job - somehow, even worse than Bucheon and Liaoning. I wasn't sacked, but I resigned 73 days into my contract. They were a newly-promoted side from the third tier, totally unprepared for life in Russia's second division. Not helped by the fact I joined just after Matchday 1, so no pre-season and little transfer manoeuvrability. We were shocking, far adrift after only a little bit of the fixtures played. I decided to resign and hope someone else could save them - they couldn't, were subsequently relegated back to the third division.

JOB 8: Belgium U21s (BEL) (2030 to 2034) Trophies: 0
I wanted a break from club football, so took up the post of the Belgium Under-21s manager. I remained in Belgium for four years, managing two qualifying campaigns. They had won the U21 Euros a few years previous, so it was a job I was looking forward to. In the two qualifying campaigns I took charge for, we failed to qualify both times. That sounds bad, which it kinda was, but I enjoyed my time with them. In the first qualifying tournament, we only missed the final tournament in the play-offs - losing to Italy. In the other qualifying phase, we didn't perform well but did finish 2nd in our group - not getting enough points for the play-offs.

JOB 9: Khimki (RUS) (2034 to 2037) Trophies: 0
With my reputation dwindling, 2034 saw the upturn in fortunes for this manager. I may have ended up getting sacked by Khimki, but it was an extremely harsh one. They were a mid-table First Division team. In my debut campaign, I got them a solid 13th. Year two saw us move up to 7th, prior to a narrow drop to 9th in the next season (2037). In 2038, we started the season very poorly and found ourselves just above the dropzone within the first three months of action. I felt confident of turning it around, but the Khimki board decided to fire me. I was shocked, I felt I was capable of fixing things but they obviously panicked. In hindsight, this was a massive blessing in disguise!

JOB 10: Mordovia (RUS) (2037 to 2043) Trophies: 1
My sacking coincided with Mordovia sacking their manager. Mordovia were a Premier League team in the First Division, if you know what I mean. They were favourites for promotion following recent relegation, but were languishing down in mid-table when I joined Mordovia. I steadied the ship to place 8th, before firing them to First Division winners in my first full season in charge. Promotion secured! In the Premier League, we were relegated (16th) at the first attempt sadly but the board stuck with me and I gained promotion at the first time of asking. That time in the top tier, we were there to stay - finishing an impressive 7th. A still excellent 11th followed next season before I was poached.

JOB 11: Krylia Sovetov (RUS) (2043 to 2048) Trophies: 1
Krylia Sovetov, now in 2043, were one of the top clubs in Russian football. They liked what they saw from me at Mordovia and decided to sign me up. I was delighted. I would remain with Krylia for five years, constantly qualifying for European competition. No title arrived as Krasnodar were incredibly dominant but I did win them the 2045 Russian Cup in my second season. I thoroughly loved my time in Samara, it was a job that kickstarted the career, but I decided to leave in 2048 for a challenge elsewhere.

JOB 12: Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR) (2049 to 2052) Trophies: 6
Then came my biggest job to-date: Ukrainian powerhouse Shakhtar Donetsk. By far and away the best club in Ukraine, honours were waiting. I won the Premier League in my first three seasons with the club, whilst winning the Ukrainian Super Cup four times. Despite major success, my tenure ended with a whimper as we lost the league title to Vorskla in 2052 but also got beat in the Ukrainian Cup final in two straight years to mid-table Desna. Quite remarkable, looking back. I resigned in 2052.

JOB 13: Austria Vienna (AUT) (2053 to 2055) Trophies: 0
A year later, in 2053, I arrived in Austrian football to sign for Austria Vienna. Although one of the country's big teams, they were far behind Red Bull Salzburg who bossed its landscape. No trophies were won with the Vienna club, we suffered similar cup misfortune to that what we had with Shakhtar. I got Austria Vienna to a cup final in 2055 but we lost it to mid-table Wacker Innsbruck. So frustrating. Back in the league, I got them three straight third place finishes before resigning during 2056 with the club sat 8th. A job that promised a lot, ended with very little - still a good job to have managed.

JOB 14: Rangers (SCO) (2055 to 2059) Trophies: 2
2055 saw me take a step closer to my homeland of England, by joining Scottish giants Rangers. As usual in the save, I joined in the midst of a season. I guided them to fifth in season one, they were lower when I took charge. Year two was better, finished second but lost the title to Celtic by four points. We hit back hard though as we then won the next two Ladbrokes Premiership titles, but we did lose the Betfred Cup final to Celtic - just no cup luck for me. After four years with Rangers, I did then go to my homeland.

JOB 15: Everton (ENG) (2060) Trophies: 0
Everton became my first English club, I signed midway through the season obviously. A Premier League ever-present in the save, they were expecting mid-table but I joined with them threatened with relegation, I saved them from it by placing sixteenth. Similarly to Liaoning Hongyun all the way back in 2028, I was fired in the following season after failing to turn the team into a mid-table side. We weren't adrift, but the Everton board sacked me during the winter holidays as we sat eighteenth. Disappointing spell on Merseyside.

JOB 16: Birmingham City (ENG) (2061) Trophies: 0
The final job. After leaving Everton, I decided to drop down a division to sign for Birmingham City of the Sky Bet Championship around a month later. It was to be a pretty fantastic half a season with Birmingham. I joined with them fifth in the play-offs, eight points off the target of automatic promotion. I clawed those points back and returned Birmingham to the Premier League, which they left twelve months previous, by finishing in second place. It was the manager's last job, a fun one at that.

Finally, below you can see the manager's final profile and a visual recap of his jobs.
