A slight improvement on last month, though it wasn't setting the bar very high. Coming from behind to beat Petrovac gave me a warm feeling, however two shoddy draws shows how the team will miss me when I'm gone. Brief goal drought for Vitali as well?

GRUPA CRNA GORA

https://i.imgur.com/m9mrEeA.png?1

Qualified comfortably for the cup semis with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Bokelj to set a course for six consecutive Grupa Crna Gora successes.

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

GROUP G

MATCHDAY 4


https://i.imgur.com/WLcYwz2.png?1

A missed penalty may have cost us the unlikely shred of qualification from the group. The usually reliable Rosic had a case of deja-vu when facing Ibrahim in goal, wasn't lucky enough to pounce on a rebound after a great save. Beşiktaş commanded affairs throughout, goals from Martínez and Ozanan left behind a mountainous task too hard to scale. The penalty could have helped change the game, but the Turks were too good for us.

MATCHDAY 5

https://i.imgur.com/CNfCoFt.png?1

Ruthless from Los Ches. It's not that we played particularly badly (even if we were poor at times), Valencia's finishing was an A+ standard. Couldn't get near them while they dribbled past our defence like they were cones, forcing two penalties out of us to account for 66% of Pruden Ramirez's hat-trick. Nikola Vidovic, Adil Mohammed and perhaps the goal of the night from Mathieu Gallard completed the rout and got their revenge for embarrassing them on their own turf.

MATCHDAY 6

https://i.imgur.com/ZYEiR72.png?1

What a spectacle to hang my Budućnost scarf up on. For all of København's dominance of the first period they were caught napping at the back, Vitali racked up his European goal tally to double figures to surprisingly lead at half time. Scepanovic thrived on the empty space available to him on the right and set up a second goal for Tvaradze, requiring two bites at it to leave the Danish crowd silent. It triggered another wave of dominance from the home side who quickly wiped the lead out, getting caught out on two set pieces to leave the game at 2-2. We bowed out of our European journey in a blaze of glory to seal a memorable win, Vukovic unmarked at the back stick to tap in from our own set piece manouevre. Copenhagen will be swarmed with loud, proud and intoxicated Budućnost fans on their way home tonight.

FINAL GROUP TABLE

https://i.imgur.com/kUlYoat.png?1

Thrilled to leave with seven points from that group. Two wins more than I expected, we did the nation proud I feel.

https://i.imgur.com/pZrCPH1.png?1

Thus ends an eventful stay in Montenegro as I seek a brand new challenge in a brand new nation.

Nation: Kosovo
Media Prediction (Odds): 1st/12 (Evens F)
Expectations: League winners
Pros: League holders. Front runners in Kosovo. Only finished outside top three once in six seasons. Solid wage budget. A chance to finally tick off this nation.
Cons: Insultingly small transfer budget. No source of wealth.

RESULT:

https://i.imgur.com/LzbIgmN.png?1

The offer is there, the objective is simple...but is it a 'safe bet' taking Feronikeli on? Is there much of a challenge involved? Hmm...

Nation: Gibraltar
Media Prediction (Odds): 9th/10 (300-1)
Expectations: Avoid relegation scrap
Pros: Pedigree of success engrained in club history. Half a million in transfer budget.
Cons: No league title for over 25 years. Newly promoted. One of the favourites to be relegated. Small squad lacking in quality and harmony. Less wage budget than Ferronikeli.

RESULT:

https://i.imgur.com/9KYpyVF.png?1

Tough decision to make. Lincoln's offer is a handsome one, but is it a poisoned chalice waiting to infect my reputation? A mighty gamble but one that could pay off.

A return to the sunny peninsula sticking out of Spain, to paradisiac rock of Gibraltar. The red hot Lincoln Red Imps have been one of the most dominant sides in the British colony since their conception in 1976. The name of the club is an obvious connection to Lincoln City FC in England, former director Reg Brealey sponsored the Gibraltarian club and paid for new kits during a holiday to the rock, inheriting the name Lincoln and nicknamed accordingly to “The Imps” wearing red and black vertical stripes.

While Gibraltar may not be a recognised country, it holds a larger population (~34,000) than one other European country; San Marino (~33,500) and is almost as populous as Lichtenstein, just shy of 5,000 inhabitants. From the aesthetic beauty of cable cars traversing the Great Rock standing tall at 1400 feet, to the fascinating historic elements of their 55km of tunnels during the Second World War, Gibraltar has a lot to offer on the tourism front with 12 million visitors entering per year - not to mention a small contingent of wild and mischievous Barbary macaques nicking stuff from their backpacks. Thieving bastards.

https://i.imgur.com/56FR4vi.jpg

This one is rather unique, as Lincoln have built a brand new stadium called the Lincoln (GIB) stadium (how original, SI) to vacate from Victoria Stadium, the national stadium. I’m amazed they even managed planning permission for the size of the nation itself, perhaps overcompensating too with a capacity stretching to the 6,000 mark, almost 20% of the entire population. The new venue opened its doors in 2026 with Lincoln defeating Mons Calpe 3-1 in front of 2,895. Still, at least it didn't take a millennium to open like Tottenham's new stadium...

https://i.imgur.com/jVlu4KW.png?1

As mentioned in the opening sentences, Lincoln Red Imps are the most dominant and most successful side in Gibraltar. Glittered with 23 league titles, including 14 consecutive titles between 2002 and 2016 before Europa put an end to the sequence in 2017. No shortage of success across the cups either, attaining 17 Rock Cups, 18 Senior Cups (now defunct) and 11 Pepe Reyes Cups (pre FM era). Europe has been a mini-success story for the Imps; a full strength Glasgow Celtic were famously defeated 1-0 by the Imps in a Champions League qualifier in 2016 to gain almost worldwide recognition and dubbed “the Shock of Gibraltar” thanks to a goal by Lee Casciaro – sadly they would go on to lose 3-0 in the second leg.

https://i.imgur.com/pBBZ0YR.png?1

Fast forward to 2057, everything has gone south…sure, they managed to win the league nine more times but you would need to go back to the 2028/29 season the last time Lincoln raised the league trophy aloft, in fact their fortunes turned increasingly worse than that, succumbing to two relegations in 2051 and 2055. The crown has fallen to the hands of both Lynx and Boca Juniors (GIB) who've given the Gibraltarian League a paradigm shift in the last three decades.


SQUAD

https://i.imgur.com/CcvGSRY.png?1

A massive downgrade from my Budućnost camp, but not overly woeful. Large portion are part-timers and amateurs, only a handful stepping into the professional shoes but it's understandable since all their best players got snapped up after their demoralising relegations. Few stand-outs, rest are lucky to warm a bench at a level 7 English club. Interestingly, not one teenager in the main squad but may be a blessing as a lot might be hitting their prime years.

KEY PLAYER: Matt Collier - M(C)

https://i.imgur.com/bZtBHR5.png

Former youth product at Manchester City (which is an oxymoron in itself), the Welshman was released into the wild and ended up in the 'highly competitive' Gibraltarian league where he failed to make it at Europa Point or Boca. Lincoln has become his home and stands out as our key man, also rocking the captain's armband. Already mentally toned at 23, practically mastered the art of passing and will be our primary source of creativity in the middle. Let's hope his leadership steers us far away from the drop zone.

EXPECTATIONS

https://i.imgur.com/tYlFZdW.png?1

Flattered that I've been trusted with a nice cash cow for rebuilding the team, pressure seems to be off with low expectations from the board. The only way is up it seems.

https://i.imgur.com/Hkf1yKP.png?1

Furthering our income, Swiss side Thun are our second nominated parent club along with German Bundesliga side Hannover 96. Couple of cheeky free, all expenses paid loan deals might be a good place to start rebuilding.

Interesting to see the league dynamic shift so much, good luck nonetheless getting Lincoln back to their former glory!
Great read mate, good luck in Gibraltar!
Great choice! Good luck in Gibraltar!
Fino alla fine
Hope this is still running @DNZY its some fall from Lincoln but sure you can get them back to where they should be!
