I'm back, and I've returned with a new venture on this career. I felt my career was stagnating at Tranmere Rovers so I decided to resign with immediate effect. I did feel that I was building something special there but didn't have the time to do it. This challenge is about winning trophies and I couldn't achieve that quickly enough with Tranmere. I've got myself another job quickly enough though and I have the chance to tick off another country pretty quickly if things go to plan. I'm back in...

FINLAND

Yes, that's right, I'm back to complete Finland and conquer it once and for all. I've landed myself a job in the Finnish First Division with a team performing well in the league to date...PS Kemi is the team to hire me and I have the chance to gain promotion straight away. You'll see why when I update you on the season so far...

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


Club Overview

https://i.imgur.com/SH9n49r.png

PS Kemi are a professional Finnish team playing in the Finnish First Division. They were founded in 1999 and have won 8 trophies in their history. They've won the Finnish First Divsion and the Finnish Second Division twice each in that time. I'll be looking to add a third Finnish First Division title to that list if I can.

[i]The average ticket price for a game is £11 and they average 300 season ticket holders. The club has no fierce rivals but has a number of other rivals in RoPS, TP-47 and AC Oulu (all local)

The team play their home games at the PS Kemi Stadium which has a 3,250 capacity but only has 852 seats. I love stadiums like this!
Training Facilities: Average
Youth Facilities: Basic

The Squad

https://i.imgur.com/z5eRSeQ.png


We have a fairly small squad at our disposal here but I prefer it that way. We seem to have the key positions down but I may try to bring in a couple of players very quickly to add to this. We have good ability too which is always a bonus.

Teppo Turpeenniemi is the best player at the club. The striker is very pacey and can finish well. He has 8 in total this season. Not bad, not bad.

SEASON SO FAR

https://i.imgur.com/MNB2iql.png

https://i.imgur.com/3wB7YV2.png


The league campaign has gone pretty well, to be honest. There is more green than red and orange on that fixture list which is always good. There have been some good wins against top teams. The team currently sits in 3rd position with only 7 games to go. I'll need to win most of these games to have a chance at the title but the second promotion place is up for grabs. We sit 3 points behind 2nd place HIFK and 8 points behind leaders Haka.

@bigmattb28, it's a huge decision, might take me a while to get another Championship team that is challenging for the title or playoffs so if that's the case, I should stay, but I feel like I'm stagnating a bit now and should move on for the good of the career. Who knows what I'll do.

@AdamRK, Huge progression on and off the pitch, we've got the new stadium finished now which should attract more fans so that's good news. I don't fancy an international job just yet, I'm thinking I may head back to South America if I get the chance...


Anyway, the save will be back soon, just been a bit busy with work lately but updates are coming! Stay tuned!

@SrWerGaming The Carabao Cup in the grand scheme of things isn't as important as the league. Are we going to win the cup (not likely), but the playoffs are a real opportunity. Thanks for taking the time to read again!

@bigmattb28, Exactly, the league is the priority so I'll be concentrating on that for the remainder of the season! Cheers for commenting again bud!

We had played really well in the first half of the season and had totally dumbfounded the media and pretty much everyone in football! At the half way stage we were in the playoffs, but could we stay there? If you look at our form in the second half, it has been up and down, with more highs than lows. Once again we had some really good wins showing our strength, but then we throw that advantage away against teams we should be beating. It's quite frustrating having the form like that. We once again scored lots of goals, but conceded a fair few as well, could goal difference be the crucial factor perhaps?

Our record in the second half of the season is as follows: 11 WINS, 4 DRAWS, and 8 LOSSES! We've scored a total of 21 GOALS and conceded 35 GOALS. As you can see, our form wasn't as good as the first half but still more wins than losses.

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


[i]WE HAVE SNUCK INTO THE PLAYOFFS! INCREDIBLE SCENES ON THE LAST DAY. We needed to beat Crystal Palace in order to sneak in, and we did just that. We finished in 6th position and qualified as the last ones into the playoffs where we were drawn against Sunderland. An incredible season in just our 2nd season in the Championship. We're on the up!


CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYOFFS


As I said above, we were drawn against Sunderland who had finished in 3rd position in the league. They finished 7 points ahead of me in the league and we shared the spoils in the league both winning one game against each other. I wasn't too confident going into the game but playoff football is unpredictable so you never know.

1st LEG (HOME)

https://i.imgur.com/Dr2GS5h.png

We narrowly lost the 1st leg 3-2 which was disappointing considering we were at home and we actually played really really well. An 89th-minute winner for Sunderland put them in the commanding seat for the return leg. A killer blow for our hopes of qualifying for the final.

2nd LEG (AWAY)

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

The away leg was a one-sided affair and we never looked like winning the game. A disappointing way to end the season but I can't be too harsh on the lads. Did anyone really think we could get the playoffs this time around?


FA CUP

https://i.imgur.com/IUT7UcZ.png


The FA Cup was more successful for us than the Carabao Cup but only by one round. We dispatched Oldham Athletic in a 4-0 thrasing and were awarded a television tie against Chelsea. They showed their quality and sent us home after beating us 3-1. Success not to be this season I'm afraid.

Nuno Ferraz came second in the goalscoring ranks last season, but went one better this time around. Not bad for a 21 year old who I signed for a mere £300k. BOOM!


DO I STAY?

I've got a big decision to make this off-season. Is success on the cards here at Tranmere or do I look for greener pastures in another country. I feel that I am building something here and have some quality youth coming through but can I win the Championship next time around? Maybe? What do you guys think?

@AdamRK, Cheers bud, big accomplishment staying in the league. Shows we have the ability to dig in. The real push for the playoffs next time around starts now.

@HawkAussie, Thanks man, don't think I've ever gone this far in a career so it's a big deal for me. Let's get to 1000 now!

@bigmattb28, I think it's an outside chance to get a playoff spot but I'm going to try my best. I've brought so really good players in and I had the second highest league scorer in Ferraz last season so he's a real asset to have! Thanks for the continued support!

What a start to the season we've had! It's been quite incredible to watch and I'm overjoyed with how we've performed. We've improved at the back from last season and we aren't conceding as many goals. Upfront we've continued to pop them in on a regular basis so that's not a problem. We've had some miraculous wins against decent teams such as Nottingham Forest and Swansea. We have lost some stupid games where we should be winning like the matches against Southend and Sheffield United. I can't quite believe what has happened to us from last season. Even though we played well enough to stay in the league last time around, I didn't think we were quite ready enough to mount a playoff challenge but the team have proved me wrong.

Our record this season is as follows: 13 WINS, 2 DRAWS, and 8 LOSSES! We've actually won more games than the league leaders Derby County but have lost more than them too. We've scored a total of 34 GOALS and conceded 26 GOALS. I'm so impressed with us and have such optomism for the second half of the season!


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


We're currently sat in a playoff position, so how about we just stop the league now and be done with it . We lie in 6th position on 41 points. We only lie 3 points behind the league leaders Derby County so who knows what will happen. The league is so tightly contested and we will have to continue to play to our best in the 2nd half of the season to secure us atleast a playoff spot.

CARABAO CUP

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


It was one and done for us in the Carabao Cup this season, as we recevied a tough draw in the 1st round. West Ham sent us packing after beating us 2-0. A disappointed cup performance but it allows us to concentrate on the league and helps us with our fitness later on down the stretch. Positive spin eh?

@SrWerGaming, I agree, with the right acquisitions who knows what may happen. I think you're right, if we attack the first half and see where we are at the midway point then re-asses my position. Cups are magical things and upsets happen every year, let's hope we can produce one or two.

@Dan, That's the first job complete, now it's time to see what we're really made of. Unfortunately no big job came up for grabs so I'm staying for the season. Let's see what happens!


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

2037/2038

https://i.imgur.com/u9Y6ssm.png

TRANSFERS // IN

Phil Kjleisten // LB // Tottenham // £120k
Phil was here last season on loan from our parent club Tottenham Hotspurs and I saw he was available so I jumped at the chance to bring him in on a permanent basis. He was pretty decent last season so it was a no-brainer. I'm glad to have him here for the foreseeable future.
https://i.imgur.com/4gdqBeg.png


Ryan Weaver // AML // Sheffield Wednesday // Free
We were in desperate need of someone to come in and fill the AML role and Ryan does just that. He's come into us at the end of his contract and I'm stoked to have him here. He's got a good goalscoring ability and is pretty pacey so should be able to use that to attack down the wing.
https://i.imgur.com/lkUdvVt.png


Tim Price // CM // Wigan Athletic // £185k
Tim is another that was on loan with me for the past 2 seasons. He was one of my first signings when I took charge and has come up the leagues with me. He's proved himself as a Championship level centre midfielder and I'm happy to have him here permanently. He will play a big role this season once again.
https://i.imgur.com/KGPYRcB.png


Jesse Kunst // CB //FC Groningen // £230k
As a couple of my centre-halves went back to their parent clubs I needed to bring in some quality. Also, we weren't that good at the back last season so Jesse comes in to help solidify us. He's only a youngster at 24 and has bags of potential.
https://i.imgur.com/gj7Egda.png


Brad Burrows // ST // Wolves // Free
I actually signed Brad at the end of last season on loan as a bit of depth up front. We only had the one striker and Brad came in to back him up. I got the chance to sign him on a free transfer and it just made sense as he did ok. Looking forward to seeing if he can make a run at the first team.
https://i.imgur.com/rGdSghK.png


Jack Goodridge // CB // Swansea // Free
Jack is the final player we signed this pre-season. I had him on loan once again for the last two seasons and Swansea allowed him to go for free so I snapped him up. He will partner Jesse at the back and hopefully, they can strike up a partnership.
https://i.imgur.com/7VdyzEJ.png


FRIENDLIES

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


I was given the options of choosing where to go on our pre-season tour by the board and I chose the Algarve in Portugal. We played 3 friendlies whilst out in Portugal and notched up 3 wins against Ferreiras, FC Castrense, and Quarteirense. We played pretty well and scored plenty of goals showing our attacking potential. We also grabbed a clean sheet against FC Castrense which is nice to see. We then came home and played against two big boys in Arsenal and Liverpool and lost both the games. I won't be too disappointed by these as we actually played pretty well in both.

MANAGER UPDATE

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

2 MANAGER UPDATES IN A ROW!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I really don't think these are as much as a hit as they should be but here we go. I've got another bit of manager news for you, and it's a historic one. I've reached 700 games in management. I've never done that many games before in my FM History so I'm really excited to see how far I can keep it going. My record in these 700 games is:

https://i.imgur.com/S6OI1FU.png


355 WINS, 167 DRAWS, and 178 LOSSES. Now if my maths is correct, that just short of a 50% win rate, which isn't too shabby considering the number of games I've managed.


https://i.imgur.com/fcj2hED.png


SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP

https://i.imgur.com/v7Z0upS.png
https://i.imgur.com/rSsG1ns.png


The second half of the season has made me question whether to move on once again. I mean we did ok but our true level showed I think. We lost a lot more games this half of the season and dropped down the league a little bit. I'm debating my position but for now, I'm still in charge of Tranmere Rovers. We managed to pick up some key victories against relegation tipped teams which ensured we kept our heads above the water at most points throughout the season...but did we manage to avoid the drop and the first time relegation back to the Sky Bet League One...

https://i.imgur.com/x5AnvNQ.png


In the 23 games in the second half of the season we managed 8 WINS, 2 DRAWS and 13 LOSSES. Impressive for a team tipped to be in a relegation battle.


https://i.imgur.com/vjO7CvO.png


We ended up in 18th position! We survived our debut season in the Championship which is something to be proud of I guess. I'm in the business for trophies though so I'm in a pickle here. One more season in charge maybe? Burnley stormed the league and ended up winning the competition. It wasn't as good news for Wigan Athletic, Hull City and Reading who were all relegated.

FA CUP

https://i.imgur.com/QO8AJFS.png


I LOVE the FA Cup, but success wasn't to be for us, and quite frankly I don't expect to win it with Tranmere. We did get further than I thought we would. It was a good opening victory against Forest Green as we sent them out of the competition after a 1-0 win. We got a tough draw against Stoke who are mid table in the Prem and we sent them packing too. A solid 3-2 victory was enough. It wasn't to be against another Premierleague side Southampton who defeated us 2-0 and ended our dreams of lifting the cups.

@AdamRK, and that award for the best joke on the forums goes to.....! Seriously though that was shocking ha! He looks to be a bit of a coup for me, hoping to bring him in on a full-time basis but I don't think Tottenham are going to allow me!

@SrWerGaming, I believe we can stay in the Championship too! I think I've brought in some quality players and hopefully, they can do the job! I'm looking to bring back the Koln save soon, I've just been too busy enjoying this save at the moment. The rivalry will return soon

The board have offered me another contract and it was again, a no-brainer to accept. I've decided to try and keep the club progressing and hopefully one day we can get them to the Prem and win the league with them. Up the Rovers! I now earn a huge 2.4k a week

WOW, I thought we would be involved in a relegation battle, and so did the media. I think everyone thought we would struggle, but we've done the opposite. We look like a very good mid-table Championship team and I'm thrilled to be able to say that! We've been the surprise package gaining wins against teams we have no right in winning but then again, we've lost some games that we should be winning but I won't lie, I'm astounded by our form. We had a tricky start to the season but I change my tactic around to go a bit more attacking and it seemed to work. Our form started to turn around and we've done well to climb the table.

In the 23 games so far we've had: 9 WINS, 5 DRAWS and 9 LOSSES. Impressive for a team tipped to be in a relegation battle.


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


We sit in 13th position at the halfway stage. We have 32 points on the board but we need some more to totally eliminate the relegation possibility. It's so close in the league as the team occupying the last playoff spot are only 4 points ahead of us on 36 points. Crazy!

CARABAO CUP

https://i.imgur.com/Nd2OPDn.png


It was a short journey for us in the Carabao Cup this time around. It started well as we comfortably beat Crewe Alexandra in the first round. We ran out 2-0 winners. We got given a tough draw against Premiership outfit Wolves and they put us to the sword in a 2-0 defeat. I'm a little disappointed we couldn't progress further but let's concentrate on the FA Cup and staying in the Championship.

@AdamRK, Cheers mate, appreciate it. Newcastle are a mid table prem team in the save, seem to have a little bit of money but nothing massive. There was an interesting job available in Holland at NAC Breda who are doing really well lately. Was tempted to apply.

@Dan, Sheffield Wednesday dominated in that second half of the season and pulled away rapidly. We couldn't keep up with them, but I'm happy we went up! (I'm taking that as a trophy by the way haha).

@KEZ_7. yeah, I can imagine Newcastle being quite difficult to progress to the top due to the stupid ownership. Be a big challenge to take Tranmere to the top though...?

@bigmattb28, the board surely can't sack me if I lose a few games right? Newcastle is a big team and it would help my reputation but I think my mind is made up...

https://i.imgur.com/u9Y6ssm.png

As you can see by the lovely logo above, I've made my mind up, and I'm staying at Tranmere Rovers for another season. I turned down the opportunity to interview at Newcastle United and set about trying to build a squad capable of staying in the Championship. I'm honestly not expecting much from the season and neither is the media who predicted us to finish 24th, right at the bottom of the pack. Maybe I'll try and target a cup win but even that's a long shot. Anyway, transfer time.

TRANSFERS // IN

Nuno Ferraz // ST // Penafiel // £300k
Nuno comes to us as we were in desperate need of a striker after the two main men left to head back to Tottenham Hotspurs after the loans finished. Nuno is a very pacey striker who scored a lot of goals in Portugal. I'm hoping he can be the main contributor of goals this season.
https://i.imgur.com/iw9qppO.png


Phil Kljeisten // LB // Tottenham Hotspurs // Loan
Phil fills a massive hole for us as we had no left back on the books. He comes in on loan from Tottenham and is a quality addition to the squad. He should be able to get down the wing and grab us a few assists. Very excited about him agreeing to join us for the year.
https://i.imgur.com/QiyzBne.png


Miguel Silva // AMC // Academica // Free
Miguel comes in to strengthen us in the middle of the park. He's an attacking player who should chip in with a few goals and plenty of assists. He has good technical skills and should improve too. Good deal on a free.
https://i.imgur.com/WmTaoVN.png


Lasse Olikainen // CM // FC Lahti // £195k
Lasse comes into us from Finland and has all the ability in the world to make him a starter at the club in the long run. He may not start at the beginning but if he trains well then who knows. He's one for the future even at 25 years old.
https://i.imgur.com/SDClD6s.png


Scott Guest // CM // Dundee United // £2m
Scott is our big money signing and I'm thrilled to be teaming up with him again. He was with me at St Mirren after I brought him in there. He's going to be the cool, calm collected head in the middle of the park and I expect big things from him.
https://i.imgur.com/Xsy154p.png


FIXTURES

https://i.imgur.com/2PQod7o.png


We played a good amount of friendlies in order to gain fitness for our debut season in the Championship. It's not about the results but wins breed confidence right. We grabbed wins against Peterborough, Fleetwood and Barwell who we should be beating to be honest. We lost against Tottenham and Liverpool and a draw against Preston. Results went the expected way in everyone.

It's not often that I have a bit of crucial information about the club to pass on to you, but today is a day that I do. It's amazing news for the club, but it may not be for me in the long run. Basically, the club got the go-ahead to build the new stadium that they were planning. The new stadium will have a capacity of 12,643 and will be based in Birkenhead. It's going to cost the club a cool £14.25m with £2m of that being secured by selling the old stadium Prenton Park.

I'm excited that the club is moving forward but I'm not sure that I'll be here by the time it's finished. I think that I've taken the club as far as I can (You'll see below) and have received offers from some interesting looking clubs. Who knows what I'll do but anyway, it's amazing news for the club itself.

The second half of the season has come to an end and the season is done and dusted for another year. Last time around I was sat in 2nd position only 3 points behind Sheffield Wednesday. I went on another good run of form but so did they and they kept theirs going longer than we did. Quite frankly they pulled away faster than a Lamborghini at a traffic light. We were quite quickly just playing for the runners-up spot. In the last 22 games we had the following record: 9 WINS, 9 DRAWS and 4 LOSSES. I'm still in shock at how well we actually performed this season coming into the league as a club expected to battle against relegation. We actually ended the season as...

https://i.imgur.com/aLoybn7.png


LEAGUE RUNNERS-UP!! We finished in 2nd place in the league, but it was a lot tighter than expected. Crewe pushed us all the way but we prevailed and grabbed that 2nd automatic promotion spot. We're going to be in the Championship next season. This is definitely uncharted territory for the mighty mighty Rovers. You can see why I think I've taken them as far as I can.

I'd love your thoughts on what I should do? I've been offered the Newcastle United job in the Prem. So you're options are:
- take the Newcastle job
- stay on at Tranmere
- resign and find a new job in a new country?

@AdamRK, first of all thank you for taking the time to catch up! Glad you agree that it would've been hard to knock those two of their perches! I think I made the right decision. In terms of Finland, it was simply a decision to go and win some easy trophies! FC Inter are far and away the best team there so it was a no-brainer!

MANAGER INFO

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

It's a very rare appearance for the ever popular segment of Manager Update, and it's not even that exciting this time around I'm afraid. I'm here to just say that I've been offered a new contract at Tranmere Rovers and I've accepted. It's a no-brainer, to be honest as I look to continue to build the club and climb the English leagues. I now earn a whopping £1.7k a week. Jealous right?

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


I didn't really know what to expect from my lads, but I did know that I had brought in some real quality in key areas. Our main strength is up-front so it's no surprise that we are scoring goals for fun. We got off to a ridiculously hot start as we only lost the once in the first 13 games. I was astonished, to be honest, but I'll happily take it. That form included a run of 9 wins in a row. Our form then went a bit hit and mix as we picked up wins then lost games and we couldn't really find a run of amazing form again. A successful first half of the season I think. Our first 24 games went a bit like this: 16 WINS, 3 DRAWS and 5 LOSSES! We scored a massive 56 GOALS and conceded 24 GOALS.

https://i.imgur.com/TV7m1BS.png


So, halfway through the season and we're looking good for another promotion! We sit 2nd in the table, a short way behind table-topping Sheffield Wednesday. We sit on 51 points, only 3 behind them. Who said another title win? (WHO KNOWS).

CARABAO CUP

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


I thought we would progress a bit further in the Carabao Cup if I'm honest. We sailed through the first round against Hull as we dominated them from start to finish. The scoreline doesn't reflect our dominance but a win is a win. It was to be a penalty nightmare for us as we lost this way to Plymouth Argyle and were ultimately knocked out of the competition.

CHECKATRADE TROPHY

https://i.imgur.com/4GnD9kK.png


We were drawn in a group with Wrexham, Blackpool and Tottenham Hotspurs U23s. I thought we could definitely get out of this group with winnable games against Wrexham and Blackpool. We managed the win against Wrexham but failed to beat Blackpool. We got an unlikely win against Tottenham Hotspurs U23 (Who are our Parent Club) and managed to top the group and progress. We got a tough draw in the next round as we were to face Liverpool U23s. We put in a decent performance but they were clinical and knocked us out 3-2. I'm not too disappointed.

FA CUP

https://i.imgur.com/2Hu9x53.png


I'm so disappointed with how we fared in the FA Cup (the cup for the underdogs.) We had an easy draw in the 1st Round, as we faced Solihull Moors and sent them packing with a 2-0 comfortable win. Colchester United was our fate in the next round and I expected us to dispatch them fairly easily as well but that wasn't to be. A 2-1 defeat meant the end of our FA Cup dreams for another year.

CLUB INFO

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


The board emailed me at the end of last season with some exciting news. They deemed Prenton Park to be too old and had too high running costs so have decided to build a new stadium. This is excellent news as we look to build for the future. They did stress it would be a long process and they had literally just started.

Preparations had started for the new season in our new league Sky Bet League One and I've been very active in bringing new players in. I was given a budget of £1.5m to spend and I wasn't afraid to use it. I've not actively sold my players but let a couple leave at the end of their contract and put a few youth prospects out on loan if they weren't going to feature for me. The media have predicted us to finish lower mid-table this season in 17th position. I think we can finish higher than that to be honest and will be trying my hardest to get as high as possible. I'll probably focus on a cup competition to try and keep the trophies ticking over as well.


https://i.imgur.com/x2XFErE.png


TRANSFERS // IN

Chris Hayden // CB // Tottenham // Free Transfer
Chris was released from his contract at Tottenham and I jumped at the opportunity to sign him for us. He's got the amazing potential for a young lad and at 18 years of age he's got a while to grow into his new role. One for the future.
https://i.imgur.com/HBYBuCW.png


Avdyl Beqiri // AMC/AML/AMR // Queen of the South // £18k
Avdyl is a Kosovan star and I had to bring him in when I saw he was transfer listed. We needed someone out on the right-hand side so he will slot straight in there. He's pacey and will use that to his advantage. Looking forward to lots of goals from this lad.

Jack Goodridge // CB // Swansea // Loan
I've never been afraid of using the loan market when there are good players available. Jack is a commanding centre-half who should be a staple in our defence. We've got him for the year but if he does well, I may try and sign him again.
https://i.imgur.com/LEvnN9K.png


Stamatis Symeonidis // ST // Tottenham // Loan
Stamatis is a late addition. Tottenham (my feeder club) sent me a list of players available for loan and I jumped at him to be honest. He should bang in the goals for us this season. He's far too good for this level already and I don't think we will be short of goals this season.
https://i.imgur.com/SoKgdvM.png


Sean Chapman // ST // Tottenham // Loan
Sean is another one from the Tottenham academy. I've switched to a 2 up front to accommodate both himself and Stamatis. GOALS, GOALS, GOALS! Sean is the pacey one, who will get in behind the defence and pop the goals in.

FRIENDLIES

https://i.imgur.com/kcbLg9l.png


We went on a pre-season tour to the sunny region of Manchester! How lucky are we eh? We played a number of friendlies including matches against Manchester United U23s, Tottenham, Liverpool, Crawley and Grays. I'm not quite sure how half of them are from the Manchester region but I'll go with it. We actually performed quite well and got a brilliant win against Manchester United U23s. We scored quite a high number of goals and that's what our fans should expect this season.

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

Back to the grind and a ridiculously long season in English football that I haven't been used to for a while. 46 games is a long stretch when you add in cup games as well. I've enjoyed my first season in charge at Tranmere Rovers, probably because I was put into a really positive situation. Finances are good, club position was good. We just needed to bring a couple of players in and that's what I did. I'll detail those below in a second. You'll see how I got on with my attempts to get Tranmere to win the League Two trophy afterwards!

TRANSFERS // IN

Anthony Clarke-Ioannou // CM // Notts County // £250k
Anthony has come in to plug the gaping hole in midfield. We had a startlingly low number of midfielders in the first team so I needed to address that. He's god amazing physical traits and at 24 years old, he can improve yet. A promising sign for the future.
https://i.imgur.com/l211hna.png


Alan O'Sullivan-Reynor // CB // Notts Forest // Loan
Alan has come in on loan for the remainder of the season to help plug up the defence. He's strong and quick and should step in easily to command the rest of the defence. A much needed signing at the back.
https://i.imgur.com/eUMX0Q8.png


Axel Andri Arngrímsson // GK // Lincoln City // £9.25k
This is an absolute steal of a transfer. Axel has all the qualities to be a top top goalkeeper as we try and climb the leagues. He's come from League One outfit Lincoln so should be easily good enough for League Two.
https://i.imgur.com/ANDug3L.png


Pontus Larsson // CM // Oxford United // £51k
Another midfielder to help come in and stabilise us. Pontus has great stats for a holding midfielder and will be used in rotation with the others. I look forward to him challenging for a first-team role.
https://i.imgur.com/NEfEoB2.png


CHECKATRADE TROPHY

https://i.imgur.com/ldV0DtR.png


As I said in the first update from Tranmere, they had already progressed through the group stage under the previous manager. It was up to me to try and take them as far as I could. We were drawn against Chesterfield in the Northern Second Round. We easily dispatched them 6-2 Our reward for this fine win was a matchup against League One Oldham Athletic. We were put to the sword in this game as we lost 2-0 and that was the end of our involvement in the Chekatrade Trophy for this year.

LEAGUE UPDATE

https://i.imgur.com/aH0IY2M.png
https://i.imgur.com/amo5v8q.png


I came into the club with the team having played 19 games in the league, and were lying in 3rd position in the table. It was up to me to navigate the remaining 27 matches and try and get them to win the title outright. (I'll say it now, promotion via the playoffs is enough for me in this challenge but title wins are better). As you can see I got off to a hot start winning the first 5 matches and going unbeaten for the first 7.. My first loss was to Notts County and was quickly followed by a loss to Oxford United. Our best result was probably the massive 8-2 victory against Leyton Orient where Dylan Pugh grabbed 4 goals. In total, we managed 15 WINS, 7 DRAWS and 5 LOSSES. I couldn't really ask for more from the lads as they gave me everything they had. Was it enough to climb the table and come out on top though?

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

https://i.imgur.com/Qhnsc7F.png


IT WAS ENOUGH! I'm unbelievably excited about winning the Sky Bet League Two. Granted I was put in a decent position but I'm happy we've managed to finish the job off and win the title. It was a close run into the league as Crewe Alexandra pushed us all the way and were only 2 points behind us at the end. Bury also finished 2 points behind us but finished in 3rd due to goal difference. A close league and one I'm thrilled to have on my achievements.

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

I've finally managed to get back to my home country of England. My first management job here and I've got myself a corker in my eyes. Tranmere Rovers have decided to install me as their new club manager and I can't wait to get started. I'm not sure why they've got rid of their previous manager but I'm happy to have taken the helm. You'll be able to see below how they've done in the current season and what I need to do to take them to the next level.

https://i.imgur.com/OMcGo5U.png


Club Overview

https://i.imgur.com/u9Y6ssm.png

Tranmere Rovers are a professional English team playing in the Sky Bet League Two. They were founded in 1884 and have won 4 trophies in their history. I'll be looking at adding to the trophy cabinet quickly but also be here for a long time and build something special. The club has won the Sky Bet League Two once in 2028. The Checkatrade Trophy had Tranmeres name on it in 1990.

[i]The average ticket price for a game is £20 and they average 3,450 season ticket holders. The club has a number of fierce rivals in Wrexham, Everton, Chester and Liverpool. Other rivals include Stockport, Bolton and Blackpool.

The team play their home games at the Prenton Park which has a 16,582 capacity all-seater stadium.
Training Facilities: Average
Youth Facilities: Good

The Squad

https://i.imgur.com/mm5AtrF.png
https://i.imgur.com/V1I2xZq.png


Looking at my squad and I definitely need to add some more quality. I've got some amazing talents there but not enough. I'll be looking at adding to the squad at the first chance I can get. My 4 best players are all on loan to me from bigger clubs which is worrying but I'll be embracing them this season to help me achieve my goals!

Carrick Swain is on loan from Chelsea and is the best player at the club at the moment. The centre-half has unbelievable physical attributes and will be one hell of a player one day.
https://i.imgur.com/LUER4Nn.png


SEASON SO FAR

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


As you can see from the league table, things have gone really well for the club. Pre-season media predictions actually predicted them to finish 5th so they are ahead of that so far. My aims for the team this season is to go on and win the title outright and I don't see why we can't do that. As for the cup competitions, Tranmere are still in the Checkatrade Trophy but have been knocked out of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup early doors.

@bigmattb28, You'd like to think so wouldn't you! Things are looking good!


https://i.imgur.com/CssodL1.png

The unbeaten season wasn't to be unfortunately as we lost a couple of games towards the back end of the season. I also apologise as I thought I was halfway through the season but I wasn't. I was only a 1/3 of the way through so yeah...My start keeper signed for another team in Portugal but is only joining at the end of the season so I've had him for the whole of my first campaign in Finland which is a positive. How did we get on then...

LEAGUE UPDATE

https://i.imgur.com/auaGZ7P.png
https://i.imgur.com/dNlqD94.png


Just look at how much green is on that fixture list! An incredible season only sees us lose 2 games out of 33 matches. That's some form! Anyway we carried on our form for a long time and went 27 matches unbeaten until we finally lost to 4-2 to our old friends Jaro. It was some way to lose as well but I'm not angry with the lads. Our 2nd half to the season saw us go: 12 WINS, 10 DRAWS and 2 LOSSES. Can't argue with that. We managed a total of 44 GOALS and concede 24 GOALS.

https://i.imgur.com/9zfBE3Q.png


WE WON THE TITLE COMFORTABLY. It probably could've been even better for us but SJK kept up with us until the very end and we managed to win by a 4 point margin.. CHAMPIONS OF FINLAND ONCE AGAIN FOR FC INTER TURKU!

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


EURO CUP

https://i.imgur.com/dNlqD94.png


[i]Following on from last seasons success, it meant that we had qualified for the Euro Cup. We were drawn against Kaisar from Kazhakhstan and managed to dispatch them with ease. It was onto FC Vaduz from Switzerland next and after 2 tight matches we came out on top on aggregate 4-2. We were handed the toughest of draws next as we faced Werder Bremen who sent us packing out of the competition after beating us 3-2 on aggregate. A good run and some money in the bank for the board to use.

https://i.imgur.com/CssodL1.png

I've had such a good run of form in charge of FC Inter Turku, so much so that I've not recorded a loss yet and we are exactly halfway through the season. I've hit the jackpot in terms of the job hunt and things are going so well. If you remember last time, my star goalkeeper wanted to leave. I managed to keep hold of him in the transfer window but he doesn't want to renew his contract so he will more than likely be gone at the end of the season anyway. If things go my way, I'll be gone by then too so no qualms there.

LEAGUE UPDATE

https://i.imgur.com/8eyVXqD.png


As you can see, it's all either green or yellow on the board so far. More green than yellow to so I can't complain. Things have just gone our way and the players are enjoying their football at the moment. Good player happiness means good results. As of 11 games in the season we've got: 8 WINS and 3 DRAWS. That's incredible and we've scored a total of 22 GOALS and conceded only 6 GOALS. We've managed to keep 6 clean sheets. Impressive stuff from the boys!

https://i.imgur.com/B85HD0Q.png


Despite our ridiculous form in the league, it's still so tight at the top as TPS are also on a great vein of form and only sit 1 point behind us in the title race. We sit on 27 points and they sit on 26. Meanwhile Jaro are propping the table up on 2 points. Ironically 1 of those points was gained against us.

FINNISH CUP

https://i.imgur.com/DQ5riFc.png

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


After our unbeaten group stage in the qualifying rounds, we managed to go on and win the whole competition! The only game that was close was the final against HJK because it was taken to extra time. The 4-1 result isn't really a true reflection of how it went but we won the trophy!! On the way we beat FC Kontu, KuPS, Jaro and HJK!.

@henrytg, cheers man! Appreciate you reading!

@HawkAussie, it seems the place to be right now haha! Need to get back to playing my friend!

@Dan, thank you dude, hoping to be a quick turnaround here and move on to the next stop.

@bigmattb28, I don't think I've ever managed here either but not 100% sure. Should be a good stop for me anyway.



https://i.imgur.com/CssodL1.png

Since I took over right at the back end of last season, I've had a long pre-season to get things sorted. In that time, we've had the qualifying for the Finnish Cup and also a massive number of friendlies. I've had fall outs with my players and also brought new ones in. The first bit of news is that Kari Nygard my star goalkeeper wants to leave the club and is not happy at all that I keep rejecting offers for him. He can go when they pay his release clause but not before. Onto the transfers in...

TRANSFERS // IN

Hèlio // LB // SAN // Loan
I was in desperate need of a left back and Hèlio popped up in my recommendations so I jumped at the chance to get him in for the year. His physical traits are top notch and he's got some decent mental stats to go with that. He's my starting LB for the year.
https://i.imgur.com/EKgzjBi.png


Usman Nwankwo // CB // Enugu Rangers // Loan
Usman was actually here last season on loan and I immediately set out to renew his loan deal. He's a commanding centre-back and will play at the heart of my defence.
https://i.imgur.com/xeINo4s.png


Michael Okoye // CM // Rivers Utd // £275k
Michael came in midway through the pre-season and has already improved. He's mostly going to be used in rotation in the middle of the park. He's only young and should progress nicely into a star midfielder for me.
https://i.imgur.com/uaacb0P.png


Thabo Arendse // ST // Bloem Celtic // £350k
I needed depth up top and Thabo was available for a modest fee. He should score plenty for me as his finishing trait is not too shabby at all. He's very pacey so needs to make use of that to make the most of his potential.
https://i.imgur.com/vFhN8Yk.png


Wilson Pinho // RW/ST // Boavista // £150k
I actually signed Wilson on a free transfer but they triggered an extension to his contract at the last moment so I went back and paid for him. He's young and should turn into a quality winger/goalscorer for me in the future.
https://i.imgur.com/MpAQKB2.png


Stanisa Markovic // CB // Javor // £97k
Stanisa is going to be my back up CB. We needed just a little bit more depth at that position and he's come in quite cheaply. Hopefully, I can keep him happy with his game time and he can produce the goods when called upon.
https://i.imgur.com/AKKHJYQ.png


FRIENDLIES

https://i.imgur.com/dIlf9jm.png


We have played a huge amount of friendlies this pre-season. I only usually play 4 or 5 but this time I played a massive 9 games. We played a mix of quality teams and performed pretty damn well if you ask me. A good win against CSKA Moscow is always a good result to have. We managed to get: 5 WINS, 2 DRAWS and 2 LOSSES. The main thing is that the team have now learnt my tactic and should be set for the season ahead.

FINNISH CUP

https://i.imgur.com/4swT9TK.png


The Finnish Cup qualifying stage takes place in the pre-season as well meaning we had 5 games extra added onto it. We were drawn in a group with RoPS, AC Oulu, Jaro, TPS, and SJK. We were expected to finish top of the group but this didn't happen. I wasn't too disappointed though as the top 4 teams qualify for the second round. Overall we had 1 WINS and 4 DRAWS. Not the greatest of form but we didn't lose which was important.

https://i.imgur.com/nxI5Pfx.png


We finished down in 3rd position meaning we did qualify so that's all that matters! Onwards to the second round we go...

I've got myself a new job after a couple of months searching! I said that I wanted to find a club that would allow me to win trophies quickly and potentially get close to completing another country! I've found that club down to a tee! I've made my way to Finland and the club that's taken a chance on me is FC Inter Turku. Last time out they finished 2nd in the league when they really should be winning the division comfortably which led to the dismissal of the previous manager. I can't wait to get on with this and conquer Finland.

https://i.imgur.com/UsrdA3O.png


Club Overview

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

FC Inter Turku are a professional Finnish team playing in the Finnish Premier League. They were founded in 1990 and have won 8 trophies in their history. They've won the top league in Finland on two previous occasions and I'll be looking at adding a third to that list.

[i]The average ticket price for a game is £13 and they average 450 season ticket holders. The club has one fierce rival in TPS and they contest the Turku Derby with them.

The team play their home games at the Kuppittaan jalkapallostadion which has a 9,372 capacity but only allows 8,400 for normal matches.

I've got a pretty decent squad at my disposal, once again, like usual I'm going to try and add some experience and some youth prospects to the squad to add some depth and to provide competition to the first 11.

Kari Nygard is the leader at the club. The goalkeeper has ridiculous stats for the league we are in so I'll be hoping for a number of clean sheets!

JoniPenttila is the man in the middle of the park! He's going to be key to us scoring goals as he can unlock the defences. He's got decent ability so hopefully, he can be the star in the midfield.

2032/2033

Last time around, I'd just told you all that we had qualified for the Euro Cup and I was really excited about the prospect of getting going in that. It wasn't to be though and things have taken a turn in my career. I've decided to quit my post as manager of St Mirren. because I think I've taken them as far as I can and I'm just going to stagnate if I stay around any longer. I don't know where I'll end up next but hopefully, I can go somewhere where we can win some trophies quickly.

EURO CUP

When the draw came out I knew we were in for a battle. PAOK are definitely a better team than we are so to only lose by one goal is quite an achievement. We did have our chances in both legs but we just couldn't find that goal to help us on our way. This was the final straw for me as if we had stayed in the competition I probably would've stayed at the club.
