Same random guy taking over.
Well I went to finally finish season 2 and my save is corrupted and won't load. So looks like no points for me in the second season Might as well start on leg 3.
I grabbed Balo as well, only scored 1 goal for me though.
Okay so a random guy is in charge again. We started off very slowly 2 draws and 2 defeats in our first 4 and pressure was on immediately. Took a lot of tinkering with the tactic but finally got something that worked. AND MY GOD has anyone else ever...
Well I got sacked. Game was against me from the start, the injuries kept piling up, Cattermole got suspended every 2nd game, was almost impossible to have a settled squad. Everyone went Long, I went something different with Keane, Long scored agains...
Ndong 2 weeks, Defoe 2 months, Borini 4 weeks. It's fucked my plans for the transfer window, half my team is unfit and or coming back from injuries this is going to be tough hahaha.
Count me in, I remember how fun these used to be. Had a good start in my first game, unfortunately this happened:
Now just one away from the league record. Our next game is against 17th placed Guiseley so hopefully his form stays up and he snags the record here.
From memory I think this is the only player of the month award any of my guys have received. Big month for strikers though with all 3 players scoring 6 goals despite the shortened month. Skapetis also claimed player of the month and I claimed manager...
A small but unbeaten month sees us shoot up to 10th. Such a tight competition though, at the beginning of November I was 2.40 to get sacked, after our win against Tranmere I somehow went to 1.90 to get sacked. We are 9 points off the lead and 8 points f...
Another mixed month, 7 points sees us drop back into the drop zone and fucking Whitehawk scored late goals against us in both games before knocking us out on penalties. We really needed the income from an FA Cup run. Skapetis is finally starting to sho...
Concerning to see my name there, we have had another mixed month but are out of the drop zone for the moment.
A much better month. Made a few tweaks and we are controlling the ball much better and our defence has been rock solid. Still not the greatest in front of goal but that will come I hope. Only the one blemish and again it comes against a team near the to...
It's not getting any easier.
I am in trouble, our form from last season is gone and I'm struggling to find it again.
So friendlies went largely as expected. We were surprisingly competitive against the premier league teams and beat the teams we should have.
I'd take 11th for this season.
Got him on loan from affiliate Burton so costing nothing. I now only have 5 players excluding my strikers and goalkeepers that can only play in one position. 10 of them can play 1 to 4 positions which is great for such a small squad meaning I have cov...
My transfer business, this will be all I do as we are struggling, we are still over the wage budget by 1k which is disappointing but I have no talent to bring up from my youths. The fans are happy about all the signings and the scouts all rate them...
Now these fixtures are purely for financial gain, I fully expect us to get absolutely destroyed.
Gonna keep expectations relatively low especially with wholesale changes I am forced to make as you can see by current wage spend and my limit.
New season is upon us. I've been pretty quiet atm, waiting for contracts to expire things like that but expect a few moves in July.
2 more locked down.
Another one locked down, everyone who I have offered extensions too has been between £50 and £200 cheaper than the last contract which is the first steps I'm taking to ensure we don't go bankrupt.
Going to have to work hard on this, first step is reducing wages.
So the team that decimated us went on to win it.
So he finally signed a new contract, it's a little high with quite a few clauses but there are a huge number of players leaving which I will look to replace for cheaper.
Here is the final table. Okay for next season I think I will skip the game by game updates. I might go for a pre season, half season and end of season update with interesting results transfers news items etc that pop up in the mean time. This was I ca...
No surprise Bondz was our player of the year, guy was an absolute rock and chipped in with some goals. Magri is one of the real quality players in this side too and I don't think it will be long before one or both are looking to move up the divisio...
Saved one of our worst games for last of all but with safety guaranteed I suppose they could afford to phone it in. End of season wrap will be coming soon.
Another fucking draw, thankfully for us the teams below us actually were as shit on the day as they should be and didn't make up any points on us. That was a tense nervous time for me, I really didn't want to get sacked, this dover team are g...
4 points clear with 2 games to go. Just need one result.
Our best game of the season and puts us out of the relegation zone again. Our next game is 20th place Aldershot so if we get another win there we SHOUUUULD be safe but this game has a funny way of fucking with you.
Dunno how we pulled this off. This is what the table looks like atm, before you know it I could be in the relegation zone again. This is intense. We are haemorrhaging money so we NEED to stay up.
First job done, get a new contract, now to avoid relegation.
An interesting draw here. Keeps us 4 points clear.
Stole the draw with Skapetis finally finding a bit of form with a role change. Unfortunately for us Bromley won so now we are only 4 points clear.
Another win, another clean sheet. We are putting it together against the lower ranked teams which is good, this win also pushed us up to 16th although a couple of those teams around us have games in hand. Tough fixture against Guiseley up next who are c...
Another huge win, puts us 3 points clear of Bromley and we play them next. 5 games without a loss now, 8 games remaining if we can put some daylight between us and Bromley I am confident of staying up and we really need it as a large number of players w...
Tranmere had a goal ruled out and thank fuck for that cause we are now 1 point clear in safety.
Another hard fought win, especially once we lost the man. We are now on 38 points and just out of safety on GD.
I've got gout ffs so I should get through quite a bit of this over the next two days. Great to get this result away from home but boy do this team know how to give me a heart attack. 3 points from safety now.
Ridiculous league, makes it interesting when you have teams like Barca who should walk the league down in relegation spots. Will continue to follow lads.
Decimated in the FA Trophy, met expectations but hopefully it doesn't dent our survival hopes.
Pulled this result out against 1st place. We are now 5 points of safety but Gateshead above us have a game in hand.
Just fucking no, if we want to stay up we can't be losing to fucking 24th place North Ferriby.
Our worst game of the season, luckily teams above us didn't really take advantage I also put this down to fatigue from the last game.
Breaking records surely can't be sacked.
Did it the hard way, Egan also missed a penalty in regular time late on that would have seen us through but onwards from here.
Rotated the team to the point it was almost unrecognisable. They didn't want to go to extra time so we have to do a replay but I will field a full strength team on that day.
