@Dan, finally, I've had some time to get the remainder of the season finished, and it's an absolute gem of an update.

We had a pretty productive end to the season and I'm happy with how our league form turned out. The Vanarama South is not an easy league to compete in as there are so many 'good' teams in the division. We had our ups and downs, but more ups thankfully. Luckily, we managed to sneak into the playoffs by finishing in 7th position, by only 1 measly point. That's all that was needed though.

8 WINS, 7 DRAWS, and 6 LOSSES

https://i.imgur.com/5938SXd.png


The playoff schedule was not kind to us, as every team finished above us, but we went against all the odds and somehow (I still don't know how) managed to win the playoffs and get promoted into the Vanarama National League. A tight 1st round matchup against Bognor Regis saw us scrape through 1-0. It was Havent & Waterlooville in the Semi-Final and it took a 92nd-minute winner and hattrick from Greenhalgh to see us safely into the Final. The final was a decent game for us and saw us win 4-2 against Brackley Town. WE ARE UP!!

FA Trophy

https://i.imgur.com/9WEzT5E.png


The FA Trophy proved to be a decent runout for the lads too. We were very successful in this competition and were unlucky not to make it to the final. A tough Semi-Final draw killed our chances and we went out to Eastliegh after beating Canvey Island, Exeter City, Northampton Town, & Crawley Town on the way to our semi-final defeat.

@DNZY, I agree, the Vanarama leagues are starting to do my head in. Now I'm not sure if I have to gain promotion from both the North & South leagues to complete my challenge, i'll decide when I cross that bridge.

I'm frustrated at our performances this season. We've had far too many draws when we should be improving and winning those games. We either can't hold on to the lead when we take it, or grab a late equaliser (which is never a bad thing). I can't be too down though as we are still doing fairly well, it's just that I know we can do a lot better. Anyway, we've had good wins against Wycombe & Havant & Waterlooville who occupy the top two spots in the league so far. On the flip side, we lost to Wellin who are bottom at the halfway stage.

9 WINS, 6 DRAWS, and 5 LOSSES

https://i.imgur.com/BhWgZG7.png


We're 6th after 21 games, and we sit on 34 points. We are in the playoffs spots but I think we should be aiming either for the league title or the automatic promotion spot. We sit a bit of a way back from the top spot but we are only 7 points back from the automatic spot. It's doable but we need a good run of form to compete for those spots at the top.

FA Cup

https://i.imgur.com/W5osQi6.png

We got dealt a cruel draw in the 1st Round of the FA Cup as we drew L2 side Bury away from home. We couldn't really have had a tougher draw but we performed well in our 2-1 defeat. Before this, we beat Corinthian-Casuals, Potters Bar, & St. Albans, all pretty convincingly and bringing some much-needed cash into the clubs coffers. We've consistently made it to the 1st round proper and that's a good achievement for the club.

FA Trophy

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


We're still in the FA Trophy and have beaten Folkestone in the 3rd Qualifying Round. It did take us two attempts to beat them but we got there eventually. In the next round we've been drawn away at Canvey Island which is a fairly tough draw but one I know we can come out on top in.

@Dan, draws have plagued me at a couple of teams in this challenge but oh well, the wins are still flowing here in Enfield.

@HockeyBhoy, I hope you're right, will it be in Enfield though?

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


We managed to cut down the number of draws and turn them into wins which is always a pleasing stat to have. Once again our form has been really, really strong in the backend of the season with a 7 match unbeaten run as the season came to its conclusion. We also picked up massive wins against Canvey Island & Dartford. I don't really know what else to say as our record speaks for itself.

13 WINS, 3 DRAWS, and 5 LOSSES

https://i.imgur.com/2J7OGZN.png


Our form improved and our position in the league did too. We ended up finishing in 3rd which is an improvement on last seasons final position as well. Eastliegh won the league on the final day and stole the title away from Canvey Island who dominated the league campaign all season. The rest of the teams that join us in the play-offs are Dartford, Brackley, Bromley & St Albans/

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


In the semi-final of the play-offs we were drawn against Brackley Town who finished two positions lower than us in 5th. We sent them crashing out of the play-offs after a 3-0 victory. Could this year be the year that Enfield Town get promoted to the Vanarama National League?

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


I'm absolutely gutted! We have been defeated in the final after an 89th-minute winner from Dartford. That's absolutely heartbreaking and it's never an easy way to get beaten in a final. We can definitely be proud of our achievements this season as we improved our league position and our playoff performance. Next year will be the one I'm sure.

That's a hell of a win against RoPS who are up there for the title challenge. The most important win was against Honka though! Well done mate! Keep it up, and I think you'll be able to keep them up!

https://i.imgur.com/eWbt0ww.png
@Dan, it's definitely more of a challenge than previous leagues and teams. I think it breaks the save up more as well, rather than winning the league every year. Time to push for the playoffs or automatic promotion.



https://i.imgur.com/OBlhCF1.png

Enfield Town // 2059/2060

https://i.imgur.com/09Xx9Sx.png

Transfers // IN

Tim Willet // GK // Free Transfer
I needed a bit of cover at GK incase our first choice Ken Clifford went down injured and my previous back up wasn't up to much so in comes Tim. Tim is a youngster with a lot of potential so maybe one day he will become my number one.
https://i.imgur.com/iO7o173.png


Jake Hards // AMR // Free Transfer
Jake was released by MK Dons and is only young but he is easily my best right winger in the squad. He's an assists machine and I'm looking forward to him nailing down that position for years to come.
https://i.imgur.com/AdoWHJL.png


Max Bryon // AML // Loan // Dagenham & Redbridge
I was scouting through the loan list and Max stood out to me as a decent youngster from a league team. I needed more strength in depth at the AML position and he's become somewhat of a regular in my starting line up. He looks decent and I can't wait for him to improve. I may even try and make a move for him in the Summer.

Vanarama National League South

https://i.imgur.com/pvDDCzX.png
https://i.imgur.com/b7zxOeJ.png


We've started really, really well in the league and things are looking really good. We've done our usual thing where we play in patches of good form, then we have a few games of bad form. I'm not sure how to solve this, but we definitely have more good patches than bad ones. We've picked up big wins against St Albans & Bognor Regis who are both performing well in the league! We even managed a good draw against Canvey Island who are leading the pack at the half-way stage. At the moment we are on an 11 game unbeaten run, which I owe to our defence who have bailed us out on a number of occasions. I don't expect us to continue this form for much longer as we're bound to have a dip somewhere along the way but let's hope it does for as long as possible.

10 WINS, 9 DRAWS, and 2 LOSSES

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


[i]We're currently in 4th position in the Vanarama National League South and are comfortably in the playoffs. We're 10 points ahead of the team who lie just outside the playoffs so we're good for now. Canvey Island lead the rest of us and have a 7 points lead from us. Things are looking good for now...


FA Trophy

https://i.imgur.com/iVxA7aW.png


Things did not go well for us in the FA Trophy this season as we were knocked out in the 3rd Qualifying Round by Hampton & Richmond in a game we totally dominated but couldn't take our chances. Always next year eh?

FA Cup

https://i.imgur.com/t6lZIn1.png


In contrast to the FA Trophy where we were knocked out in our first match, we absolutely smashed the FA Cup, and managed to reach the 2nd Round Proper where we were eventually beaten by a strong League 2 Bristol Rovers. It took them 2 legs and extra time to beat us minnows so I'm proud of how we did. It also brought in a lot of money for us which has helped decrease our debts significantly. On the way to our 2nd round defeat, we beat Street, Taunton, Stevenage, & Cambridge United. This was a good run for us minnows.

https://i.imgur.com/EQgSzr1.png


We carried on our form nicely into the second half of the season and started our ascent up the table as a result of that. We had big wins against Eastliegh, Bath & Wycombe, all who performed well in the league campaign. We had disappointing losses against Whitehawk but the other losses all came against in-form teams in Chippenham, Havent & Waterlooville & Crawley Town. At the back end of the season, we went on an 8 match unbeaten run which is ridiculous and I'm so impressed with the team and how they managed to play.

12 WINS, 4 DRAWS, and 5 LOSSES

https://i.imgur.com/QaL0OoM.png


This run of games at the back-end of the season meant that we just snuck into the playoffs by 3 points. In fact, all 3 teams that ended up on 71 points were in the playoffs. It was close. 71 points was enough and I'm ecstatic with the fact that we've improved massively this season. We drew Wealdstone in the 1st round of the Play-Offs and unfortunately that was where it ended for us. The match ended 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes and extra time meaning it was a penalty shootout to decide the winner. It's always a lottery in these situations and unfortunately, we didn't win this time.

FA Trophy

https://i.imgur.com/2EIChH1.png


The FA Trophy was another competition that I was wanting to do really well to bring in some money to boost the coffers. We managed a really impressive win at higher-ranked team Scunthorpe United who ply their trade in the Vanarama National League. This victory set up a tie against St Albans. This was the end of our FA Trophy journey as we lost 2-1 after leading the game at half-time.

@SirWerGaming, definitely a tougher task than any of my previous jobs, but one I needed to inject some life back into this save! I'm hoping to be here for a few seasons as I try and tick off some more trophies in England.

Transfers // IN

Lewis Brown // ST // Free Transfer
Lewis Brown is one hell of a striker for our level. He's only young at 20 and has decent pace and finishing for a player at this level. He has excellent potential and hopefully, he can be my main man up top for years to come.
https://i.imgur.com/TZbVKI3.png


Lucas Garcia // LW // Free Transfer
Lucas comes in after being released by Fulham. He too also has the potential to be a big-time player for us. He's good on the ball and loves to dribble past players. I'm hoping for lots of asissts this year.
https://i.imgur.com/WQTyGJT.png


Dominic Price // CB // Free Transfer
Dominic comes in from AFC Wimbledon and comes in to sure up our defence. He's good at marking and has a good jump on him meaning he can win lots of headers.
https://i.imgur.com/ML7nHFW.png


Nick Collins // RB // Loan // Swindon Town
Nick comes in late in the pre-season as a replacement for my RB. He comes in on loan for the whole season and brings in league quality straight away. He should be a decent acquisition.

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


As you can see, we've done pretty darn well compared to last time out. We've played 21 games and I'm really happy with how things are going. We're scoring lots of goals, and we're not conceding TOO many for us. We seem to go on a little run of wins, then we lose a couple then we win a couple again and that's how it goes for us. We've had a big win against Havent & Waterlooville who came down last season from the Vanarama National League. We could do with turning some of those losses into either draws or wins, but things are going well.

9 WINS, 4 DRAWS, and 8 LOSSES

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


We are in with a shot of the playoffs, with 21 games to go, we definitely could finish in those playoff positions and have a chance of going up. We need to keep our form going though and that's the difficult bit. We lie in 9th position on 31 points, with only 5 points between us and the playoffs.

FA Cup

https://i.imgur.com/rKgxA2H.png


We did really, really well in the FA Cup this year, managing to get to the 1st Round where we eventually lost to Morecambe in a replay. The wins weren't important but the prize money was. We are in serious debt that I couldn't even hire an Assistant Manager for the first half of the season. On the way to the 1st round, we beat Sittingbourne. Hampton & Richmond & Chelmsford.

FA Trophy

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


We've managed to progress nicely into the FA Trophy 2nd Round after wins against Mangotsfield & Poole Town. Once again the prize money is massive and we could do with progressing further and further to help boost the coffers. I don't think we have enough quality to win the thing but who knows what the draws may bring.

So I had 17 games in charge of the season left, in order to try and save us from relegation and keep us in the league. Form has been a bit patchy, but we've had some really good results, and also some really shocking ones. A big win against Bath City who are riding high in the league, and also another good win against high fliers Chippenham. We've actually played rather well against the top teams but in the relegation 6 pointers, we've not fared quite as well. Anyway, our record stands as:

8 WINS, 0 DRAWS, and 9 LOSSES

https://i.imgur.com/iMwm3EO.png
]

We've actually managed to climb one place in the league which is a positive step. We could've ended a bit higher and I'd have liked to do just that, but one place is better than none. We've ended up in 16th position and it's time now to build on this and really push for a higher mid-table finish next time around.

Club Overview

Enfield Town are a professional team playing in the Vanarama National League South in England. They were founded in 2001 and haven't won much of note. The only thing in their trophy cabinet or more likely a trophy shelf is the Essex Senior League on two occasions. Big time eh.

[i]The average ticket price for a game is £10 and they average 250 season ticket holders. They have a few local rivals in Barnet, Boreham Wood & Billericay.

The team play their home games at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium/b] which is a 3,000 capacity stadium with 750 seats.
Training Facilities: Poor
Youth Facilities: Poor

The Squad

https://i.imgur.com/jRVH55O.png


The Squad needs some serious quality added to it in the off-season, but for now, we have an OK squad to work with. It's all about finishing as high as possible.

[b]Tyler Barden
is by far the best player at the club. The 28-year-old striker needs to knock in a few more goals, however.

https://i.imgur.com/zne9VZH.png


As you can see from the fixture list, things haven't been going great for the mighty 'Towners' and there is an awful lot of red marks on it. They need to change to green marks quickly. We've been knocked out of both the cup competitions we were in, and are just battling to stay in the league for now.

We ended exactly how we started, in pretty damn good form. I knew this wouldn't be that tough a job as FC Seoul are one of the more established teams in South Korea but I didn't expect us to do THIS well to be honest. Once again we showed our scoring power by notching up 49 GOALS and showed we are made of stern things at the back by only conceding 25 GOALS. Not bad, not bad. We also had some good wins against Jeonam & Jeju along the way. We didn't show up against the big teams however, shown when we lost against Ulsan & Pohang. After the regular season finished, the league split into two groups with the points just being added to your total from the regular season.

It was Jeonbuk who were our next victims as we smashed them 4-0 in the Semi-Final. The final was a 2 legged affair and Pohang were no match for us. An aggregate score 6-2 was enough for us to lift the title.

@Dan, I think you're right, FC Seoul are a top team in the league so I expect to tick a few trophies off quickly before dropping a league and trying to get that one too.

in other news @Dan, the problem I encountered before, still seems to be happening but solves itself by leaving it running for a season so the jobs get taken. Not sure how to solve it fully though.

@Eric Portapotty, let's hope it continues. It's definitely going to get harder the further along I get. I think I've taken an easyish route so far with the teams I've chosen.

K-League 1

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


17 games into the league campaign and things look good on that fixture list. One thing I've noticed is that we score ALOT of goals! There are a lot of high scoring games and that's usually a good thing for us as we can outscore anyone with our firepower up top. We've actually scored 46 goals in the league alone which is huge. We've conceded 26 so we're still in the positive goal difference. We've had some important wins along the way too, most notably against Pohang and Ulsan. Our record is as follows:

12 WINS, 2 DRAWS & 3 LOSSES


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


After 17 games, we sit top of the tree once again and things are looking good for us to be in the mix of it come to the end of the campaign. We've got 38 points and sit 1 point ahead of Jeonbuk in second. We've got a game in hand on them so could go 4 points clear if we manage to win it.

Korean FA Cup

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


We've played the 4th & 5th Rounds in this seasons FA Cup and comfortably progressed into the Qtr-Finals after wins. The first victory came against lower-ranked Dongeui University as we beat them 9-0. Our 5th round victory was against Cheonan City who are also lower-ranked and we smashed them 5-0 to make it 2 from 2 in the cup.

Asian Champions League

https://i.imgur.com/yQZu8mx.png


We were drawn in the group stage alongside Shanggang (China), Melbourne Victory (Australia), & Hachoji Tigre (Japan). This seemed like a tough group but we made it look easy as we finished top of the group. We recorded victories against Shanggang (1), Melbourne Victory (2) and Hachoji Tigre (2). Our only loss in the group stage came against Shanggang but it didn't matter too much in the grand scheme of things.

This set up a 2nd round match against Esteghlal from Iran and after a nervy 1st leg match which ended 1-0 we managed to secure our passage into the next round with a 3-0 victory at home.

Wang Joon-Hee is clearly the best player ability-wise at the club. He's on loan from Watford and is sure to be the key to our success this season. The striker is only 21 years old and has the pace to burn. I can't wait for him to score the majority of my goals this season

Hyundai A-League (Regular Season)

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


Once again, our form in the second half of the season wasn't that inspiring when you compare it to the first half. We could've quite easily thrown our good work away if other teams around us had performed. I don't think we had a win against a team around us in this half which was disappointing but we managed to pick up wins where we would normally expect them and at important times to keep the points ticking over. Anyway, how did our record fare?

6 WINS, 2 DRAWS, and 5 LOSSES.

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


Other teams around us kept dropping points when we did, which meant that we finished top of the tree, handing me another trophy! The Hyundai A-League (Regular Season) title in the bag, and we also qualify for the A-League Finals once again! Excellent work, as we finish 6 points clear of Brisbane Roar.

A-League Finals

A-League Finals Semi Final
Western Sydney Wanderers // Home

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


We came away from a tightly contested battle with a 1-0 victory which meant we had qualifed for the Final. Youngster Dean Kettings netted a neat finish in the 56th minute which was enough for us to progress.

A-League Finals Final
Sydney FC // Home

https://i.imgur.com/93y0dX1.png


If the semi-final against Western Sydney Wanderers was a close affair, this was the total opposite. We absolutely smashed them and I'm overjoyed with how we performed. We were on it from the first minute to the last and our superior quality showed. Bradley Kyle put a first past Sydney just before half-time in the 42nd minute. Eduardo Smith made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time with a cool slotted finish from just inside the area. We made it 3-0 with a penalty converted by Eduardo Smith just after the break in the 49th minute. Eduardo Smith completed his hattrick and perfect day as he scored a header in the 67th minute before 2 minutes later David Smith put the finishing touches to our victory. 5-0 the final score.

@Dan, these seasons do happen apparently! Was annoyed with our form at the backend of the season as it set us up for failure in the finals!

https://i.imgur.com/o4vGSbi.png

Transfers // IN

Ricky Hafal // CB // £275k // Man Utd
Ricky was a late addition to the squad as I realised I needed cover at center half! Ricky is a player with huge potential and to nab him for the United youth team is perfect. I can't wait to see how he develops this season.
https://i.imgur.com/wFybjbq.png


Roy Bervoets // CM // £250k // STVV
I was searching for a man to hold down the middle of the park on his own as I had none in the squad. It took ages to find someone but Roy came up and he has immense quality on the ball. He's a true box-to-box midfielder which is what I need as I only play the one in there. We got him on the cheap and I'm happy he's here.
https://i.imgur.com/rRnI0RZ.png


Maxence Pereira // CAM // £85k // Tienan
Max came in early in the transfer window, and is providing cover for Smith in the CAM role. He's young and is amazing on the ball. His game time may be limited though due to Smith being a key player in our squad.
https://i.imgur.com/fm7lI6e.png


Nya Vyner // RB // Free // West Ham
Nya was the first man in this season and can play in both the LB and RB positions. He's got immense quality on the ball and is one for the future too. He's come in from the West Ham Youth Squad so surely he has something in him.
https://i.imgur.com/1s10D1x.png


Edgar Chan // LB // £170k // Lobos BUAP
As you can see, I was in the market for full-backs. Edgar has the stamina for days so can get up and down the wing. That's exactly what I wanted and he's slotted straight in at the LB position in my starting lineup.

Hyundai A-League (Regular Season)

https://i.imgur.com/NZHXOa1.png


After our end of season slump last time around, we've found our feet again. It's quite clear that we have the best squad in the league now with our new additions and it's showing in our results. We've had big wins against Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory whilst also beating last years winners Sydney FC on the second matchday of the season. I've been really impressed with our goalscoring potential and we've also kept it fairly tight at the back only conceding 8 goals in the 14 games we've played.

10 WINS, 2 DRAW, and 2 LOSSES.

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


Look at that gap at the top of the league. We occupy the top position whilst Melbourne City are our nearest rivals but are 8 points adrift of us. Sydney FC sit one place and one point further back so things are looking really good. They did last season though and we all know what happened there...

FFA Cup

https://i.imgur.com/U6UBh7G.png


We've only gone and won our first trophy in Australia. The FFA Cup plagued me last season as we were knocked out in the Qtr FInals by Sydney FC. This time was different though as we breezed through the first and second rounds with victories against Sutherland Sharks & Cairns FC. We played A-League side Brisbane Roar in the Qtr Finals and needed extra time to secure our place in the semi-finals. The team who knocked us out last season aimed to do the same this year as we faced Sydney FC in the semi-finals. We got our revenge though s we ran our 4-2 winners. It was all too easy in the final against Melbourne City as we collected our trophy after a comfortable 3-0 victory.

SMASHING.

https://i.imgur.com/Wf7kqPZ.png


Not exactly the end of the season we were hoping for. We lost all form and just lost game after game and that's not good enough. It didn't help that I lost my only CM to the salary cap, and so had to play a youngster there who clearly wasn't ready for the remainder of the season. I'm not impressed and I'm sure a few players will be leaving so I can get a few more in and manage the salary cap myself a bit better than I did this year. We will be back to win it next year...

5 WINS, 1 DRAW, and 7 LOSSES.

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


Our form in the first half of the season really carried us through to a 3rd place finish and also into the A-League Finals. I'm still disappointed we couldn't win the Regular Season as we were in a prime position to do so even with our bad form at the back end of the season. Sydney FC ended up regaining the title and Newcastle Jets took the runners up position.

Hyundai A-League Finals

https://i.imgur.com/XKAYF3z.png


It was one and done for us in the Finals as we lost to a much better Adelaide United. We were struck by injury and also tiredness so I didn't think we would get anything. Onto next season anyway...

Transfers // IN

Gerard Gullo // CM // Western Sydney Wanderers // Free
Gerard has a tonne of experience being 31 years old. He's been there and done it and will slot straight into the starting line up as the elder statesman in the middle of the park. He's going to have to be a leader out there and tame this young squad of mine.
https://i.imgur.com/H9ctBVq.png


Jordan Webster // CB // Western Sydney Wanderers // Free
Jordan is the opposite end of the age scale, as he's only a youngster. He's automatically come in as my best CB though and I'll be looking at him to sure that back line up. He's got all the physical traits you'd want, but needs to improve his technical skills in order to realise his potential!

https://i.imgur.com/bIRraO6.png


Things have gone pretty well so far in my first season in Australia with the mighty Wellington Phoenix. After missing out on the A-League Finals by one position last season, there are wrongs to be righted and we've set about doing that. We've hit some good form, and we've also hit some bad form, but overall we are doing well. Steve Fox has been in the inspired form up top hitting 2 hattricks in the league so far. We've had a really good win against Sydney FC who are one of the favourites for the league title. I'm really happy with how things have gone so far, and hope they continue into the second half of the season

6 WINS, 5 DRAWS, and 2 LOSSES.

https://i.imgur.com/VVhyz1t.png


We sit top of the tree at the half-way stage. We're doing really really well and just need to kick on now and really make that position our own giving us the best chance in the Finals. We sit 1 point clear of the rest, but it's really close behind us so we can't sit on our laurels.

FFA Cup

https://i.imgur.com/6wdzFSr.png


Things started out really well for us in the FFA Cup as we beat lower-ranked Kingston City & Devonport City in the 1st and 2nd round respectively. Unfortunately, we were drawn against Sydney FC and they sent us home after an extra time 4-2 victory. Harsh to go out after extra time but that's the way the cookie crumbles. There is always next season.

Wellington Phoenix are a professional team playing in the Hyundai A League in Australia. They were founded in 2007 and haven't had a huge amount of success having only won the FFA Cup back to back, in 2050, and 2051, so really not that long ago.

[i]The average ticket price for a game is £9 and they average 6,000 season ticket holders. They don't have any fierce rivals since they are actually based in New Zealand.

The team play their home games at Wellington Regional Stadium which is a 34,500 capacity all-seater stadium.

Steve Davis is the strongest player at the club. The New Zealand born goalkeeper will be key in the upcoming season. He's a distributor who can still improve as well being only 22 years old.

Tianjin Quanjian 2054

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

So things have changed a little bit since being promoted into the Chinese Super League. Things were going OK but not spectacular so I started checking the job vacancies. An interesting and exciting prospect came up in Australia at Wellington Phoenix, so I chanced my arm and applied. The board at Tianjian tried to convince me to stay by offering me a new contract but I refused it, and within the next week, Wellington Phoenix had interviewed me and offered me the role as their first team manager which I have accepted. A few reasons why:

1 - I didn't think that I could win the Super League with Tianjian.
2 - There was no money at my team, we were losing millions and that meant no transfer budget/wage budget so I could reinforce my squad.
3 - I've wanted to manage in Australia for a while so took my chance.

China I'll be back for a 3rd bite at the cherry soon.

Things got better, so much better!! I'm astounded at what these lads have been able to do. It's amazing once they get a bit of confidence in them then they go out and perform week in, week out. As you can see we only lost once in the last 15 games. We went on a winning run of 9 games during the middle of the second half of the season. I kept thinking that it would come to an end, then it didn't and the cycle would repeat itself again. Incredible stuff. We even managed a good win against biggest rivals Tianjian to start it off. I'm speechless.

12 WINS, 2 DRAWS and 1 LOSS.

https://i.imgur.com/8FdQ6I1.png


[i]WE DID IT! We've gone up to the Chinese Super League by winning the Chinese National First Division. We ended up winning by some way with a gap of 7 points between ourselves in 1st and Liaoning in 2nd. Absolute scenes for this cash strapped Chinese club.

Xie Bo // RB // £105k // Liaoning
Xie Bo is a talented right back, and at the age of 27, he provides some much-needed experience to the squad. He will be battling it out for the starting position and hopefully can bomb on down the wing and grab me some assists too.
https://i.imgur.com/Y4Ug4Sk.png


Zheng Dabo // CAM // £160k // Huanghai
To be honest, Zheng has been brought in as a back up to the CAM role. He's got ability but he's not amazing. That being said, I'm sure he will still chip in a few goals and assists when he gets his chance.
https://i.imgur.com/55mUMtK.png

Jin is another CAM that I've brought in, this time on loan from Super League club Renhe. He is an assist machine and even at such a young age he's got a cool and calm head on his shoulders.

Andre // CB // Loan // Shandong
Andre has come in from Chinese giants Shandong. He's a young CB and one that I desperately needed due to a few of my previous CBs leaving the club. He will provide me with some much need consistency and stability at the back from day one.

Xu Hang // ML // Loan // Shanggang
Xu was the first one in from my parent club. He's a quality youngster who represents the China U20s team. He's got so much ability and I'm hoping he will win points on his own for us.

Wang Yong // ST // Loan // Shanggang
Wang is another player in from the parent club. He's got goals in him if he can find a spot in the starting 11. If not I'm sure he can pick a few goals up from sub appearances. He's got a lot of ability too.

Look at that form for a team that struggled a bit last season. We finished last season in an all-time low position apparently so the new boys have come in and have worked wonders. Confidence is up and results are flowing. In fact, we've just gone on an unbeaten run of 9 matches to close out the first half of the season! Incredible. Game of the season so far has to be the 7-4 thriller between ourselves and Chongqing. We absolutely smashed Yongchang as well who everyone thought was going to walk the league. Let's hope we can continue this form and get an automatic promotion spot at the very least.

9 WINS, 3 DRAWS and 3 LOSSES.

We're currently in 2nd Position, sitting only 1 point behind the league leaders Tianjian who coincidentally are our biggest rivals. What a title race this could be if we both continue to shine in the league. The pressure is behind us too as we sit on the same amount of points as Chongqing & Liaoning.

My eyes weren't set on winning this competition this year, but instead trying to get out of this league and into the big time once more.

Things weren't too good for us at the back end of the season. I wanted to come in command it from the off, but that didn't happen and we sort of just petered out in mediocracy. As you can see, we had a really good win against Wuhan and Henan who are two good teams in this division. We did struggle against the top top teams but with reinforcement next season in the transfer market we should do better in this regard.

5 WINS, 3 DRAWS and 3 LOSSES.

I guess you can say that's a success because we won more than we drew or lost, but I want more from the lads.

The Squad

Connor Bond, the Englishman is the best player at the club currently. The Anchor Man may need to find a new position in my tactic as I don't usually play a DM, but he's definitely got the quality to do that. I'll be looking at him to command from the middle of the park.

It's been an OK start for the club in the league. They currently sit in 7th position with no real shot at the title. The best realistic finish would be to get into the playoffs, but it will require a huge effort. I've done it before so I'm confident we can here too. We need to change the current form first of all having lost a fair few games recently.

Cup wise, we are already out of the Chinese FA Cup after being knocked out by Shenzen FC in the Fourth Round.

SPAIN | European Championships 2052

https://i.imgur.com/QmU9XQp.png

We were drawn in Group C of the European Championships alongside Wales, N.Ireland & Romania. I was really happy with the draw and thought we had a really good chance of progressing whilst winning the group.

We started things off in the tournament with a lovely 1-0 victory against Wales who provided more of a battle than I thought it would be. A victory is a victory anyway. In the second match, we played against N. Ireland and got our best win of the tournament with a 5-1 scoreline. We had already qualified going into the last group game against Romania so we were facing off to see who would finish atop of the group. It was us who prevailed as we won 2-1 against a spirited Romania team.

We faced Russa in the First Knockout Round, an old enemy who defeated us last time we faced off. It took extra time to separate us, but we managed to net the winning goal in the 116th minute to put us into the Quarter Finals.

We were drawn against the mighty France in the Quarter Finals, and I thought we were toast, but we put in a gritty, valiant performance which saw us come out winners after a 2-1 victory. Esparza with both the goals.

In the Semi-Finals we played my home nation England. Funnily enough, me, an Englishman was managing the Spanish team, and a Spanish man Alvaro Morata was managing the English side. Anyway, my Spanish team put them to the sword and sent them home crying once again. 4-0 the final score with Esparza putting in another fine performance netting a hattrick.

We faced Holland in the Final at Hampden Park. I knew we would be up against it due to us losing to them in a friendly a couple of months ago. I thought we could at least score but we didn't manage that, and ended up losing 2-0 which made us Runners-Up.

Staight after the final, the dreaded email came through, and I had been sacked as manager of Spain. A little harsh considering we came 2nd in the tournament. I was going to resign anyway to get my club career back on track, but to get fired is a kick in the teeth.

Not sure what's happening but each time I now add in a new nation to load into the game, all the teams come in as manageable, but then when I apply it says unsuccessful as the search is over. I think it may be because I am loading them in and I am in charge of Spain. I'm going to see how it is after the European Championship in the Summer, and I'm hoping it sorts itself out or it's bye bye to this save

SPAIN UPDATE

https://i.imgur.com/QmU9XQp.png

It's another Spain update, and this time it's the European Championship Qualifcation competition. We were drawn in a group with Russia, Israel, Albania, Armenia, & Faroe Islands. Qualification should've been easy but was it?

https://i.imgur.com/UjJ362v.png


We stared off the qualification period with 2 wins against Israel & Faroe Islands to start off with a 100% record. A decent start but one that was expected. It wasn't a great second round of matches as we only managed a draw against Albania that should've been a win, followed up with a win against Armenia.. It was the main rivals Russia up next and we sent them home in disgrace after a 3-0 victory. Once again we should've won the next game but only managed a draw against Israel. We absolutely hammered Faroe Islands as we should do but ended up losing in the return match against Russia. This meant that we needed a win against Albania & Armenia to win the group and qualify in the top spot. We did just that and things are looking rosy going into the European Championships.
