And that's a welcome change so it is @DNZY as I've only been used to underachieving with clubs thus far.

That's a tough one @Suffolk Seasider. If we finish in the top six then that means Rhyl can't be relegated and thus in return it means I can't (ideally) be sacked as a result but a bottom half finish means we could potentially win more games. As for keeping the players motivated, well, hopefully me getting coaching badges means they players will start "beliveing" in me.

Cheers @Ruskii but I don't think I can get used to winning so many games, it's a welcome change.

Rhyl: January 2019

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

It's been a mixed but enjoyable season thus far at Rhyl as we find ourselves up in seventh place with six wins from our opening nineteen games as we are close to securing an unlikely top six finish which will mean we won't be able to be relegated to the First Division. They'll be four league games this month as we will entertain Bangor City and Carmarthen before travelling to Cardiff Metropolitan University, the fourth game will be the first game in the split.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty

We have secured our second victory of the season against the reigning champions Bangor City as a Jonny James goal, five minutes before half time, sealed the three points at Belle Vue.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty One

On a high from securing maximum points against Bangor City, we welcomed Carmarthen to our Belle Vue home and despite getting off to a flyer courtsey of a Jonny James goal on five minutes, Touray equalised for the visitors four minutes into the second half.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty Two

The final game before the split saw us make the journey to Cyncoed Campus to face Cardiff Met and the points were shared in a six goal thriller but because of Connah's Quay being held to a nil nil draw at Carmarthen it means we've secured a top six finish in the Welsh Premier League. New striker Phillips' goal on eight minutes got us off to a flyer, Branch levelled for the hosts on the hour, Watkin put us back into the lead six minutes later but goals from M. Jones and S. Jones within four minutes put Cardiff Met three two up but Will Bell's spot kick in the ninety third minute secured a top six finish for Rhyl.

Welsh Premier Championship Conference - Match Day Twenty Three

Our first game in the Championship Conference saw us welcome Cefn Druids to Belle Vue and an excellent second half performance from the visitors ensured a three one win as Orme hit a second half hat trick, Phillips scored a consolation for us with two minutes remaining.

January round-up


With just nine games remaining I'm over the moon that we had secured a top six finish but I'm now just hoping we don't lose all ten games in the Championship Conference (one's already been played vs. Cfen Druids) while the other newly promoted side, Havefordwest continue to prop up the table.
When the game first came out I had been finding it difficult hence the major reason why I ended up getting the sack at both Darlington and DPMM but now since I've went to Rhyl (newly promoted to the WPL, predicted to finish bottom) I'm starting to finally get a feel of the game, if I could cut out my inconsistency then I'll be laughing.
Comme d'hab, une partie sans tes Updates n'est pas une vraie partie de Football Manager

Can you please post in English? It would be greatly appreciated.
Will anyone be watching?

Yep. I'll be watching on the Monday night though and I'm hoping it delivers.
That would've been the best month I've had thus far on Football Manager 2018 @Dan bar none.

Rhyl: December 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

It's been an expected inconsistent season thus far for Rhyl Football Club as we have now entered the final month of the calendar year and there's five league fixtures with month with FOUR of them being on the road against Bala Town, Cefn Druids, Bangor City and The New Saints while our one and only home game in December is against the basement side Havefordwest.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Fifteen

A crazy final seventeen minutes at Maes Tegid saw Bala and Rhyl share the spoils in a two all draw - Will Bell gave us the lead on seventy three minutes, two goals in the space six minutes from Craig and Smith saw the hosts turn the game around but Kyle Williams' goal on eighty six minutes saw the points shared.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Sixteen

We then slipped up against high flying Cfen Druids, Orme bagging the winner for the hosts with three minutes remaining.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Seventeen

But the side returned to winning ways in this game, easing to a three nil victory against the basement side at Belle Vue. Two goals in the space of three minutes from Tom Davies and Luke Boundford near the end of the first half had us in control, Boundford's second of the game on seventy three minutes secured maximum points.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Eighteen

It was then a sensational game at Nantporth saw us beat the reigning Welsh Premier League champions Bangor in a seven goal thriller but it could've been more comfortable as a Luke Boundford brace and a Michael Pritchard goal had us three two up at half time as Hewitt (14) and Holsgrove (45+1) scored for the champions - Holsgrove's second of the game had the scores all level but an own goal from Clark gave Rhyl an excellent four three success.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Nineteen

The calendar year concluded with a two nil loss at the hands of the league leaders TNS as Lofts and Wes Fletcher scored inside the opening twenty two minutes. I then chose to go attacking in the second half due to having 'nothing to lose' but nothing at all happened.

December round-up


Nineteen league games have been played and there's only three more to play before the league splits in two as it splits into a "Championship Group" and a "Relegation Group". We find ourselves currently in seventh place with six wins, five draws and eight defeats from our nineteen games thus far. Haverfordwest continue to prop up the table while TNS lead it and are now six points clear.
Some of those chances missed by Seferovic and Zuber I could have scored!

I was gutted when Seferovic got subbed off. He added a comedic act to the game due to being so bad.

First job I've been linked with since joining Clyde just over a year ago. I've no real desire to leave just yet though, although if our form doesn't begin to take a turn for the better then it won't be long until I start seeking my next post. Afterall I'm not getting any coaching badges here yet.

You're managing Clyde mate, not Stirling.

But I've to ask a serious question, am I managing Clyde?

«This comment has been edited»
It's great to see you're back @Tarrantino!
League: 13 - 20th - 5pts
FA Cup Fourth Round Exit - 5pts

Leeds 1 win 1 loss = 5 pts
Newcastel: didn't play them = 0 pts
Middlesbrough: 1 win 1 loss = 5 pts

Total 20pts

Points are only allocated from after the Barnsley game on New Year's Day.
It was @DNZY but it was also a little shame we couldn't capitalise when they went down to ten.

Rhyl: November 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

With a rare unbeaten month behind us which included an excellent point against The New Saints we entered the penultimate month of twenty eighteen - November brought four more league games against Barry Town United, Connah's Quay, Aberystwyth and Newtown while Rhyl also hosted Haverfordwest in the third round of the Welsh Cup.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Eleven

The month began with a trip to Barry as the unbeaten run stretched to five games following this two one success. Michael Pritchard gave us the lead with two minutes remaining until half time, Frater made it one apiece on sixty three minutes but Declan Poole's goal with fourteen minutes remaining sealed the win on our travels.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twelve

Our unbeaten run came to an end as Shackleton's goal on thirteen minutes gave Connah's Quay the points at Belle Vue.

Welsh Cup - Third Round

It turned out to be a short run in the Welsh Cup this season as a goal from Holden on eighty four minutes saw Haverfordwest progress to the next round.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Thirteen

It turned out to be the late show at Park Avenue as two goals in the space of two minutes inside the final ten minutes saw Aberystwyth and Rhyl share the spoils. The hosts took the lead first on eighty four minutes through James' goal but Watkin's equaliser, two minutes later, salvaged a point.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Fourteen

And the month would conclude with a frustrating and disappointing three one defeat at home to Newtown who went two goals up inside the opening twenty minutes through a McMinimee brace, Wandless made it three nil and that was effectively game over before half time. Kyle Williams pulled a goal back in second half stoppage time but it was a poor, poor showing from the hosts.

November round-up


Lying in seventh place after fourteen league games, it hasn't been a bad season thus far for my Rhyl side but we still remain frustratingly inconsistent. Fellow newly promoted side Haverfordwest currently prop up the table while TNS remain top and still three points clear of current champions Bangor City.


The final piece of news this month is that I've been allowed to go on another coaching course as the Rhyl board feel I'm doing a 'good job' at the club currently. This'll course will see me, if successful, get my National A Licence and it'll take around four months of study and the football club are paying the six hundred pounds to cover the course.

Just keep playing him. If he's a long term contract then I'm sure he'll become happy again eventually.
Unfortunately due to my reputation being so poor @Suffolk Seasider, these are the only jobs I can attract at present.

Rhyl: October 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

Just one league win from our opening six Welsh Premier League fixtures, it was always going to be a tough challenge at Rhyl and with a (pretty much) new look squad they're going to need time to gel together. Now as we enter October the squad has hopefully gelled now as four WPL games await us - the side will travel to Haversfordwest and Carmarthen will we'll host last season's runners-up The New Saints and Cardiff Met University.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Seven

The third month of competitive fixtures began with just our second top flight victory of the season, beating Haverfordwest three one on the road. Poole gave us the lead after twelve minutes but Jones equalised six minutes before half time - two goals in the final fifteen minutes from Mitchael Pritchard and Watkin sealed maximum points.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Eight

A nil nil draw at Belle Vue but because it was against The New Saints, I'll allow it, even if they did have Cabango dismissed on the hour mark.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Nine

It was a Sunday afternoon to remember for our travelling support as we disposed of Carmarthen Town at Richmond Park as second half substitute Mitchael Pritchard hit a brace of penalty kicks while Williams and Davies were also on the score sheet before the Pritchard double.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Ten

And our new found confidence continued as we had to come from two goals down to secure a point against Cardiff Met as all four goals were scored in a crazy second half - S. Jones and M. Jones gave the students a two goal lead but two goals in the final ten minutes from Luke Boundford an a Williams leveller in the third minute of added time sealed an unlikely point at Belle Vue.

October round-up


With ten league matches down we find ourselves right in mid-table (sixth position) with three wins, three draws and four defeats from the ten matches and a plus one goal difference. Carmarthen prop up the table while the current champions Bangor are third and five points behind the leaders.
Going by the star ratings, you have a strong enough squad to be a success in L1 this season. KIU @Dan.

Norn Iron were so much better in the second leg in Basel, I really thought Johnny Evans' header was going to go into the net but alas it wasn't to be. Gutted for players like Aaron Hughes and Gareth McAuley as this was probably their last chance at qualification for a World Cup.
Well done on getting promotion with Clyde via the playoffs...

...you're officially a better manager than me on FM18.
I'm in! Have to be done before 30th of november right ??

I am interested to joining his will be my first year so can you explain what I need to do to join? When is the first one starting?

You need to go onto this thread - https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/35927/susie-on-tour-2018-stop-1-black-car-revival. It's already started.

You then need to download the save game that can be found on the bottom of the OP from the link above and go by the rules (e.g. start with no coaching badges and Sunday League Footballer reputation). You'll have until the end of the month (28th iirc) to complete the challenge but it's only five months long so you should be grand.


You're doing so much better than me. No fair!
Sticking to the FM tradition of being Rangers as my first save.. the board have some unrealistic targets this year eg. make group stages of europa, win the league.
Hope this doesn't lead into an early sacking.. well see

Reaching the group stages of the Europa League shouldn't be an issue depending on the draw(s) you get and they can't do any worse than real life.

I'm agreeing though that it's unrealistic to expect them to win the Scottish Premiership immediately especially with how annoyingly good the Celtic squad currently is and even the Aberdeen squad is probably slightly better but runners-up should be the minimum from the board and those expectations are what's putting me off actually starting a save with Rangers mysel.
They're predicted to finish around ninth or tenth @Dan so at least there's no real pressure on me . . . I'll still probably get sacked though.

Rhyl: September 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

Two Welsh Premier League games have been played so far this season and we are not only win-less from the first two games but we haven't been able to score a goal yet - into the month of September now and we have four league outings awaiting us against Aberystwyth, Newtown, Bala and Cefn Druids along with theWord Cup second round tie away to Haverfordwest.

theWord Cup - Second Round

Our only competitive win so far this season came in theWord Cup first round tie away to Aberystwyth and we progressed to the third round with a single goal win away to fellow newly promoted side Haverfordwest as Wardley scored what turned out to be the winner with ten first half minutes remaining.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Three

It's now three league games without a league win and a goal as Aberystwyth won two goals to nil at Belle Vue as Cook scored in either half for the visitors.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Four

Our first league win arrived in our next game as we defeated Newtown by two goals to one, Luke Boundford opened the scoring on seven minutes before scoring what turned out to be the winning goal four minutes from time - in between the Boundford double, Jones was dismissed for Newtown two minutes before half time and McMinimee had levelled on fifty four minutes.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Five

But we couldn't build on our first league success last time out as Bala secured a success at Belle Vue, winning four two on the travels. Jonny James's cracking free kick gave us the lead but goals from Ogleby (11), Davies (17) and Jonathan James (60) but Bala in firm control, Luke Boundford made it three two to give us a glimmer of hope but that was extinguished when Spender's spot kick on eighty four minutes secured three Bala points.

theWord Cup - Third Round

It would be a third round exit in this season's theWord Cup as Barry Town United came from a goal down to progress to the fourth round of the competition, midfielder Barnett gave us the lead on thirty seven minutes but Barry pegged us back when McLaggon made it one apiece on seventy three minutes, Smith's goal on one hundred and two minutes proved to be the winner.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Six

The second month of the season concluded with a two one defeat at home to Cefn Druids - Michael Pritchard equalised in between an Edwards brace for the visitors.

September round-up


So it's just the one league win from the opening six league games and it's not the most ideal start but it was always going to be difficult with a Rhyl side who needed to be massively rebuilt over the summer and there wasn't much talent around for a newly promoted semi-professional side. Connah's Quay are propping up the table while TNS are top and two points clear.
Disgraceful decision from the match official last night. Not one person (apart from the referee) thought it was a penalty.

Rhyl: August 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

With a decent preseason program behind us it's now for us to begin the competitive football action in Wales for the first (and not the last time) in my managerial career. We have two WPL games against Barry Town United at home before travelling to Connah's Quay but the competitive action will begin with a trip to Aberystwyth in theWord Cup first round tie.

theWord Cup - First Round

So the competitive season began with a tough trip to Aberystwyth in first round of theWord Cup and Rhyl had to come from behind to seal their second round passage. Hughes broke the deadlock on thirty one minutes but Michael Pritchard's debut goal levelled the scored two minutes later before an own goal from Sinnott, three minutes into the second half sealed the win.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day One

It was a poor start to the league campaign though as an early James goal after just five minutes gave Barry maximum points at Belle Vue.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Two

We then made the trip to Connah's Quay and secured our first point of the season following a nil nil draw but it also means we haven't found the net in our first two league games.

August round-up


Seems pointless posting the league table as my new Rhyl side have only played two league games and are win-less. Champions Bangor City made a winning start to the league season, as did runners-up TNS.
So glad you didn't take the Darlo job @Dan. Good luck at Clyde mate and hope you don't get sacked . . .
Does anyone watch Singaporean football @r96Skinner? The previous sackings were harsh, I guarantee I'll be a success at Rhyl . . . or maybe not.

Should I though @DNZY? I was contemplating...

Rhyl: Preseason round-up 2018

https://i.imgur.com/KvUECGs.png - https://i.imgur.com/8VudMY3.png - https://i.imgur.com/dZJrLIv.png

I'm back once again on the British shores following a disappointing stint in Singapore with DPMM in which I still feel my sacking was unjust due to being in the mid-season break but with yet again jobs being limited, Rhyl was my latest destination - I forgot to take a screenshot but the Rhyl board are allowing me to take my next managerial course which'll see me secure my National B Licence once I'm successful, they're paying the six hundred pounds.


Due to the squad being very tiny when I took the reigns signings needed to be made and quickly as fourteen players arrived at Belle Vue this summer - twelve of them arrived on free transfers as Jack Perry, Andy Wycherley, Glen Fearn, Sam Ashworth, Jack Kenny, Owen Allen, James Davies, Kyle Williams, Tom Kemp, Michael Pritchard, Bailey Jackson and Josh Barnett (Cardiff Met Uni) while The New Saints duo Martyn Wardley and Jonny James joined on-loan.


Just one defeat happened in what turned out to be a somewhat decent preseason program as Warrington defeated us two goals to one, we then defeated Llandudno Junction two nil before three consecutive one apiece draws against Solihull Moors, Clitheroe and Glen Conwy and then preseason concluded with a two one win at Rhos United.

«This comment has been edited»
If you have any sense, you will reject the Darlington job. They're she-ite.
Yeah @Suffolk Seasider I completed the coaching course so I did but obviously because my reputation is still half a star, Wales'll probably be my next stop.

I'm still starting to wonder that myself @Dan haha, it hasn't been a superb start.

Rhyl-ling into Wales


After 'securing' my second sacking in just over one season my reputation remained at half a star and that once again meant I had limited job opportunities despite securing my first coaching badge during my tenure at Singaporean side DPMM as I got my National C Licence. Jobs were available but due to my reputation I had to wait for what seemed an eternity for a vacancy suitable for my rubbish reputation to come up and yes, it was back to the United Kingdom I went.


Not one but two jobs became available in the space of a few days and I ended up applying for both, they were at National League North/South side Billericay Town and Welsh Premier Division side Rhyl, both clubs were newly promoted to their respective divisions. I attended both interviews and now I'm just waiting to see if one of them will get back to me but I wouldn't blame either if they couldn't be bothered - who wants to employ a manager who'll struggle and then get sacked within a week?


Obviously Rhyl have decided to be stupid enough and take a punt on me to become their next manager and I'm quite surprised but due to them being newly promoted they're expected to struggle in the Welsh top flight and maybe I need to try and remain at a 'struggling' club, build them up and try to help my reputation. It'll probably be a trophy-less stint due to needing to topple TNS and the current WPL champions Bangor City.


And here's conformation that I've been appointed as the new manager of newly promoted Welsh Premier Division side Rhyl who had offered me a one year deal at Belle Vue in which I'll be earning eighty five pounds per week.

One thing I haven't mentioned which I'm going to do now, the squad is TINY so thus I'll need to make an absolute ton of signings and I highly doubt 'big names' will be interested in coming to a newly promoted side with no transfer budget but an average enough wage budget. I simply CAN NOT get sacked from this job, there's very few half star/one star clubs playable on my current nations selected.
Now @Dan I'm hoping you don't fail miserably like a certain other staff member has . . .

Good luck.

DPMM: May 2018

https://i.imgur.com/U2Ror98.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/2WrLBZg.png

The final month before the mid-season break is upon us and just two more games were to be played before the break and those games saw us make the journey to Balestier before hosting Tampines.

S.League - Match Day Fourteen

Our four game unbeaten streak has come to an end as the side suffered a two one defeat on the road against Balestier, Ramazotti scored our goal in between a brace from Nanda Lin Kyaw Chit.

S.League - Match Day Fifteen

But we would soon bounce back in the game before the mid-season break as we eased part Tampines at home. Ramazotti broke the deadlock after nineteen minutes, Muhd Maududi made it two nil two minutes into the second half. We were comfortable throughout the game.

May round-up


That one defeat at the hands of Balestier has seen us slip down to sixth position in the S.League table which is a little frustrating, especially when we won our last game against Tampines. Geylang International are the new leaders while Young Lions prop up the table.


But it's happened again! I have been sacked as manager of DPMM and once again I've failed to see out a season and my reputation just can't improve. My "failure to improve the overall performance at the club was the final straw" and I'm out of work again even though this was like a month into the mid-season break. I'm beginning to hate this game.

No, I'm not allowed to load up any new nations (e.g. Northern Ireland) as that wasn't part of the agreement I had with myself at the start of the game, I've to complete a nation before picking a new one.
