    Default 60 to One

    60 to One

    And now the sign-up begins! One person will be the CSE Endurance King!

    The Concept
    60 promising football managers have been born into Europe’s, arguably the world’s, top divisions: the English Premier League, the Italian Serie A and the Spanish La Liga. Their mission: to survive the longest without getting fired, resigning or moving clubs. He or she that does that becomed the CSE Endurance King or Queen.

    However, there isn’t just one opportunity to win the title. There aren’t two. There are three. Myself, Ridleys and weeeman27bob are each running three versions of the sign-up: an identical database with no changes in the manager qualities but in each one, different things will happen and as a result, anyone can win. Who will fare best, those at small clubs, those at big clubs, or those willing to settle for a 10th-placed finish?

    There’s only one way to find out…onwards we stroll!

    The Important Stuff
    Here’s a few things about your managers that you might need to know.

    Every manager has started off at the club given to them by the Live Draw (see the sign-up thread). They also have this club as their favoured club to a level of 80%, and are on a £10,000 Full Time Contract with no set expiration date.

    They have started with a Current Ability of 130 and a Potential Ability of 160, and Home, Current and World Reputations are initially set at 7000. They have been allocated 20 for some attributes and 1 for others dependant on their favoured ice cream from a selection of five, which they stated as they signed up. They chose their own nationality and also date of birth, although the game is slightly erratic in allocating the latter, although all managers are between 40 and 45 at the start of the game.

    Here is a list of managers, with their usernames and clubs.

    The Lives
    This is the heart of the sign-up. Each manager is given three lives. Once a manager moves clubs, resigns or is sacked in one save, run by either me, Ridleys or weeeman27bob, they lose that corresponding life. They do not lose the life if they co-manage a nation and a club, although they do if at any point they decide to leave the club and purely manage the nation.

    Once a manager loses all three lives, they are out. The last manager with a life left at the end of the sign-up is the winner. However, if a user has not made a satisfactory contribution to the thread, they shall not win and the title will be passed down to the second person, third person or even further until someone who has been regularly posting wins.

    Managers with the same number of lives are ranked by their job security. For two or more lives, the job security for all lives is summed and a score given, the higher the better. This is as follows:

    1 Precarious
    2 Very Insecure
    3 Insecure
    4 Stable
    5 Secure
    6 Very Secure
    7 Untouchable

    Following this post I will post a current lives table. Bear in mind that this lives table will not be updated as the sign-up progresses, but new lives tables will be posted after every update.

    The Updates
    Updates come in threes: one from myself, one from weeeman27bob and one from Ridleys. These will be posted every weekend and reflect a month’s game time, although if for whatever reason we cannot post an update the schedule will have to change. After all three updates, a lives table will be posted.

    The user posting the update will select their “Manager of the Update”. This doesn’t score points, but is good to keep track of how you are doing and is a nice sideshow. The reports will focus on managers who got fired during the month of update, and is guaranteed to cover every one of them, but will not necessarily cover every one of the 60 managers. However, with each update comes a table giving your progress in that one save, so you will know how you are doing even if you are not mentioned.

    Managers mentioned in the report will be done so using their manager names. Hence it is important for me to post the above table so you can refer if you need to.

    Writer’s Notes
    Please contribute to the thread and enjoy yourselves. Remember that us three runners have other things to do and cannot always be writing and posting updates. We’ll try and notify everyone in advance if we cannot make an update.


    Further Writer's Notes (31/05)
    We've restarted the thread due to the disappearance of mikeytwigge, and we've brought in a new third co-runner, who is to be weeeman27bob. Obviously, weeeman has to catch up with his updates and we will try and get you a mid-week update. That means that, alongside him posting his update for the first month, you will see our updates again. This is to preserve continuity and to keep everything in a nice order for archiving/future viewing. You don't have to reread our updates if you don't want to, although for some people, you might savour the time when your job position was as good as stable!

    great to see that you've found a replacement, and a good one as well. However I have to admit it is quite worrying how long mikey's been gone for.

    As per the further writer's notes at the end of the OP, Ridleys and I won't be doing our updates again, simply reposting them for continuity. Your only chance of an improvement is in weeeman's save replacing mikeytwigge's.

    Yeah, I knew that

    I meant that it was a fresh chance for the people who were doing badly in mikey's version of the save.

    You'd be closer to what people call me if you used the typo

    Bob is not part of my name in anyway, it was just something I Stuck on the end of my first email address and it stuck.

    Update 1 – weeeman27bob
    Years: 0, Months: 1, Days: 24

    All systems are go in Europe’s three major leagues. Only twenty-four days may have passed, but that hasn’t stopped the transfer action so far. In Spain, Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid have been the biggest spenders so far, forking out for right winger Mauro Camoranesi. Madrid’s main rivals, Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona, have to be content with a 3-1 victory over Bulgarian team Lokomotiv. With only a few friendlies being played by the Spanish teams, lots of attention was drawn to Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia’s defeat by two goals to one against Liverpool, managed by Jeremy English. Elsewhere in Spain Atlético Madrid put five goals past Amoros in their only friendly. David Machine’s similar sounding Athletic also won by the same convincing margin.

    Wobill Luman’s Betis and Phill Ewles’s Valladolid are the only two teams to have bought two players so far in Spain, splashing out £3.7m and £430k respectively. Andy Morton may have signed two players, but one was an out of contract player. His team still contrived to lose 1-2 to Tyler Burrows’s Udinese. Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo struggled to get past a weak Odense Boldklub in their UEFA Cup qualification campaign winning by four goals to three. Jack Browne’s Sevilla have had a disappointing start to the season, winning only one of their two friendlies against weaker opposition. Joe Seddon’s ,Getafe , however, ran out convincing winners against Rio Ave. Sirus Lannock’s Malaga have also done well winning their only friendly so far. Jellybean Man should give himself a complimentary jellybean after Numancia won both of their friendlies by a combined score of 7-1. Osasuna, managed by Saul Goode are also on the winning track having beaten Chantrea by a four goal margin. Racing have had mixed results so far, but Maz Armley should be pleased after defeating Leo Dodge’s Spurs by two goals to nil.

    Arsenal are top of the table in the EPL, as they usually are when no games have been played, but have still managed to knock in seventeen unopposed goals in friendlies. New boys Hull City have had a mixed pre-season so far losing two but winning three. Elsewhere in the north, Shazad Ali’s Geordies have won all three of their friendlies so far. Their rivals, Scott Tysoe’s Sunderland have lost two of their friendlies but managed to pull out a shock victory against Ben Cee’s Inter by two goals to one.

    Liam Ferguson’s Man City, have been the biggest spenders in England so far, splashing out £12 million for João Moutinho. Their new signing has helped them to chalk up an impressive twenty goals in pre-season so far. The other notorious big spenders, Chelsea, have actually gained money after selling Michael Ballack, but have still managed to win all of their friendlies. Last season’s winners, Maurice Jobson’s Man United, do not have a 100% pre-season record after a disappointing draw, but still look like challengers for the title. The final member of the big four, Jeremy English’s Liverpool, have chalked up three straight wins.

    By contrast, Wigan have had a poor start to the season, winning only two of their six games, but scoring twelve goals in the process. Zach Machios’s Portsmouth have not only won all of their games, but have also secured the services of the young attacking midfielder, Diego Buonanotte. Also in the south, Tim Aubel’s Fulham have picked up one of each from their three pres-season games so far, wining one, drawing one and losing one. Also, in London, Whoopy Dee’s West Ham have won all of their friendlies, scoring fifteen goals in the process. Moving across to the Midlands, newly promoted West Brom have had a good start to the new campaign, and are so far unbeaten in pre-season. Fellow Midlanders Stoke have not done so well contriving to lose two of their five friendlies. Mark Cator’s Aston Villa, though, have done the best of the Midland teams, comfortably progressing through their UEFA cup tie

    Moving across to Italy, Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina have purchased half of Alessandro Rosina. Big boys AC Milan, managed by Will de Mote, have been impressive in pre-season so far, winning both games 4-1 with the second game against Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus. Their main rivals, Inter, have not been anywhere near as impressive in losing to Sunderland. Super Lampard’s Lecce have had an average start so far, winning one and losing one but still scoring eight goals in the process. Neppo Monster’s Cagliari, by contrast, only scored one goal in their only fixture to date.

    Reggina, managed by James Salter, have done well so far beating Belgian team Genk by three goals to none. Theo Stigarakis’s Catania matched Reggina in putting three goals past Genk. bermybhoy’s Atlanta have had an equally impressive game, beating Haarlem by four goals. Southern giants Roma have also scored four in their only fixture so far, which must please Clark Aitken. Jonte Rhodes’s Lazio have been in good touch, scoring five unanswered goals in just two games.

    dafuge has had a mixed bag of results in his first two games as manager as Torino, having won one and lost one. Tyler Burrows’s Udinese have fared better, winning both of their games so far. Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo have been in demolition mode knocking in eight goals in two games. Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria have not been quite as impressive but still have a 100% record. Mikael Schøler has done well so far, despite a 1-3 loss to Porto. Cardio Vascular has taken Genoa to an unbeaten start so far with a win and a draw for the Scottish manager. Finally in Italy, James Ridley’s Siena have the same record winning and drawing one game apiece.



    Manager of the Update

    There are a fair few candidates but;

    Whoopy Dee, West Ham

    …claims this noble award, due to his team having scored an impressive amount of goals, fifteen, against established opposition. There were a fair few being considered, and while Jellybean Man’s Numancia have been impressive so far, they haven’t played against great opposition, and while AC Milan have beaten some good teams, the quality of players available to Will de Mote means he isn’t quite up there. Both Tom Smith’s Arsenal and Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City have knocked in a considerable number of goals, but my decision goes to Dee because of the lower quality of players available to him.

    Default Re: 60 to One

    Note: this update has been previously posted, so you will have already read it. We just want to keep the thread looking nice as weeeman posts his updates.

    Update 1 - Ridleys

    Years: 0, Months: 1, Days: 24


    The exciting pre-season has begun and all new managers are out looking for new players to build up their squads. Firstly I think I should mention that all managers have survived through their first month of management so congratulations. Anyway on to the important stuff and who better to start with than ManchesterCity, with their billionaire chairman. The ManchesterCity boss Liam Ferguson has been most active in July – spending £74m on 6 new players, of which 2 of them are arguably a huge gamble. The £74m spent so far by ManchesterCity so far is more than the rest of the World’s spending put together! Ferguson also managed City to an 8-0 aggregate win over Tobyl Kostanay in the UEFA Cup 1st Qualifying Round. Another of the managers to open their chequebook was Middlesbrough manager Ricky Nakano who brought in 2 additions to the club - a defender and an attacking midfielder - for a combined fee of £2.7m. Boro and ManchesterCity were 2 of only 9 teams that spent money in the month of July.

    Newly promoted Hull City and their new manager Martin Bojangles were looking to bring in some more defensive options to the team as they brought in a defensive midfielder and a central defender for a mere £150k. These new defensive options seem to be working as well as they have looked very solid in their 4 friendlies where they have scored 15 goals and conceded just 2. Arnold J. Rimmer was also on the look out for a defensive midfielder for his team Bolton Wanderers. He decided to sign Gerardo Torrado from Mexican club Cruz Azul for £2.3m. The Bolton boss also brought in a Japanese attacking midfielder to provide more options when going forward. Wigan’s female manager Brettney Joven had raked in £16.5m from selling 2 of her players to ManCity over the month. This provided them with enough funds to buy 2 players – 1 being a defender and the other a striker. The Latics Lady decided to not spend big money though and only spent £1.2m on the pair.

    Andre da Conceiçao was the only manager from a Big 4 side to spend any money during the month of July. da Conceiçao signed an absolutely pointless 31 year old keeper who will never be more than backup at Chelsea for £1.6m. West Ham did not follow in da Conceiçao’s footsteps however and did not want to sign pointless players. Their manager Whoopy Dee signed a left winger from Celtic for a fee of £3.2m. It ended up however that Dee’s signing made a bad start to his career at the club. The winger played in 2 friendlies and got an average rating of 5.45. Funnily, he hasn’t played since. Tim Aubel’s Fulham have looked very average in pre-season. They brought in Kenny Miller on a season long loan for a fee of £300k, but still seem short of goals scoring only 3 goals in their 5 friendlies in July. Zach Machios,the manager of Portsmouth, was the final man to get involved in the Transfer Window as they were another team to sign an attacking midfielder from a Scotland, for £160k. The player is yet to make an appearance for the club.

    So what are the other 3 teams in the Big Four up to? Well, Tom Smith has got off to a pleasing start at Arsenal as his tactical knowledge is going down well and the team are playing well and are trying to impress their new manager before the season starts properly. Maurice Jobson was given the tough job of managing current Premier Division holders Manchester United. Things got off to a good start in pre-season with two 6-0 wins but since then they have suffered an embarrassingly poor defeat in the hands of Sheffield United. This is only pre-season, but Mr Jobson will be hoping that that result isn’t a sign of things to come. Liverpool’s new manager Jeremy English wanted to bring some flowing and attacking football to Anfield and that is exactly what he has achieved, scoring 13 goals in their first 4 friendlies of the pre-season. Scott Tysoe was not active this month in the transfer window, however there are rumours that he has been looking at a couple of players. Tysoe has made his first error in management however as he has somehow managed to hire a 2nd Assistant Manager. Perhaps he just needs some extra help. Along the road at Newcastle Shazad Ali is also rumoured to be looking at a player to boost their attacking options. They are thought to be looking at Fabrizio Miccoli on loan for the rest of the season.

    Mark Cator was the 2nd of 2 Premiership managers to take part in a European competition during July. He managed his side, Aston Villa, to a 3-1 aggregate win against Turkish side Grasshopper. They have also managed a good result over Porto in a friendly as they ran out easy winners against the once Champions League winners. Everton looked like they would be the side that would be challenging Aston Villa to 5th place this season along with Tottenham and both managers Bryan McGuinness and Leo Dodge have both been extremely busy doing nothing over the past month. With their sides playing in just 2 friendlies each it has been a very inactive month for both managers. Will the laid back approach work though? Even though West Brom are doomed to relegation in real life, they are not quite as bad in this game, well we can’t be sure of that now that Brucie Bonus has taken charge. Bonus will be looking to take more of a laid back approach and even though West Brom usually like to get forward (well maybe once or twice), Brucie’s new style seems to be going down a treat as they are yet to lose a friendly! Watch out though, they are playing Hereford next and that will be a certain defeat.

    Stoke’s gaffer Fréderico Canvey seemed to forget he was managing Stoke until 22 days in to the month as he was spotted holidaying with recently retired Sir Alex Ferguson (he hasn’t actually retired, don’t worry!) in Ibiza. Fréddy got to work quickly though as he somehow got his players to play 5 games in the space of just 8 days! Robert Boyle is the 20th and final manager from the English Premiership. He is on the look out for a new striker and may have found it with Claudio Pizarro currently considering a contract for a £4.2m move to the Lancashire side. Blackburn have recorded 3 comfortable wins so far from their 3 friendlies.

    La Liga has also started with a bang and players are being released here there and everywhere at the moment! At. Madrid manager Cool Manager and Athletic manager David Machine have been busy reducing their wage bills and between them they have released a total of 37 players (15 for At. Madrid and 22 for Athletic)! All these players seem to be from either the “B” of “C” teams though, so neither manager will have a shortage of players come the first league game. Wobill Luman at Betis was the first of only 2 managers to purchase a player this month as he decided to £1.1m to bring experienced Argentine midfielder Kily Gonzalez back to Spain for the 2nd time in his career. Phill Ewles at Valladolid was the only other manager to spend any money on a player as he brought in Miguel Falcon, an attacking midfielder from Cartagena for £300k. Falcon now joins to the list of 13 attacking midfielders at the club! Sporting manager Andy Morton was the only other manager active in the transfer window so far, bringing in former Spain international Ivan Helguera to strengthen the defence. Their defence is certainly playing well with him in as well as they have won both of the friendlies the new signing has been involved in, without conceding a goal.

    With no other teams purchasing any other players so far, a lot of the teams are spending time playing friendlies and getting ready for the new season. Neilio and Almería have been the most active so far, playing 3 friendlies and winning all 3 without conceding a goal. Saul Goode, manager of Osasuna has also managed in 3 pre-season friendlies so far and his side have also won all 3 without conceding a goal. They, like Almeria, have only faced lower league opposition however and have some tougher friendlies to come. Mallorca have not been in brilliant form so far and their manager Tom Hamilton may find himself under pressure if this recent form continues. Mallorca have played 3 friendlies, winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 1.

    Lars Tommersen has not been wasting time playing against lower opposition as his Villarreal team have faced Argentine Giants River Plate as well as two Dutch division 1 sides. They won all 3 games comfortably. Málaga and Sirus Lannock have not been up to much at the moment, playing just 1 friendly – winning it 3-0. They are also rumoured to be interested in signing an attacking midfielder (does every team need an attacking midfielder or something?) for a fee in the region of £1.4m. Neji Hyuuga is the only manager to have taken part in European football so far in Spain as Deportivo faced Rosenborg in the Intertoto Cup 3rd Qualifying round. Unfortunately for Deportivo though, they were knocked out on away goals. Neji hasn’t appeared in public since apparently after such an embarrassing early exit.

    Now then onto the 2 Spanish Giants: Real Madrid and Barcelona, managed by Lucas Volman and Haowan Madridstas respectively. Mr Volman had arguably the harder job as his Madrid side were current La Liga champions; however neither he nor Madridstas decided to spend any money during the month of July, which came as a surprise to a lot of people. Real Madrid are on the verge of signing Mauro Camoranesi from Juventus however, but will this one signing be enough for them to live up to expectations and retain the title? Tipped to come in 3rd position is Sevilla, and Jack Browne will be looking to get them off to a good start in the league. They play Chelsea in a friendly on the 9th August and this could give an indication of how good the team are.

    Sevilla are predicted to come in 3rd place; however I feel it will be a 3-way competition. Sevilla, Villarreal, At. Madrid and Valencia all look like they could get 3rd place in the league. Lawrence Lazewski will also be looking to get of to an explosive start, and with plenty of pre-season friendlies as well as the Spanish Super Cup to play, the side should be more than ready for the beginning of the season. Cristobal Blanco, the only Peruvian manager and manager of Recreativo, will be looking to guide his side away from relegation this season and hope for a mid-table position at the best. They have looked fairly impressive so far, recording 2 wins in their 2 friendlies this month. Cristobal’s attacking style seems to have gone down well so far. Maz Armley is all set to manage Racing in their first ever season in a European Competition. They have not been entered into the UEFA Cup yet but will be at a later stage. They finished 6th last season and I’m not sure that they will be able to improve this season.

    Numancia are going to struggle this season, but Jellybean Man will be hoping that his attacking football will guide his team away from relegation. I don’t expect Jellybean Man will last long at the club if he can’t save the club from relegation, but you never know. Getafe are no more than a mid-table team but if they aren’t careful they could get dragged in to the relegation zone. Manager Joe Seddon will be hoping that he can keep his side in a safe mid-table position. Joe Gleeson is the final manager in Spain. He is managing Espanyol, huge rivals of Barcelona, and his side may have an outside chance of getting into Europe this season. This will largely depend on how well they play against the other teams gunning for a European spot.

    Serie A is the home to the Defensive game, although things may be set to change as there is now a wave of attacking managers who are looking to change the style of Italian football completely. Serie A is also home to the Co-ownership transfer rule, which is used very regularly. I find it all rather confusing to be honest (however after reading this short article I feel I have a better understanding of how it works). Over 50% of the transfers so far have been co-ownerships. Da Hoover Man, manager of Sampdoria seems to be using this system to the best of his ability as he has spent £4.1m to co-own 3 players (Takayuki Morimoto, Nicola Pozzi and Jorge Martinez). bermybhoy at Atlanta is also using the system to his advantage as he has also signed (well, co-owned) 3 players for a combined fee of £2.6m.

    Bologna’s boss Mikael Schøler is one of only 4 managers to purchase a player permanently (i.e not co-owning them) as he brought in Giulio Migliaccio from fellow Serie A side Palermo, managed by Mikey Twigge, for a fee of £2.2m. Another manager to spend some of their transfer budget in July was James Salter as he spent £1.4m on Martin Jorgensen from Fiorentina to give his side, Reggina, more options up front. Salter is also looking out for some fresh young talent as they have co-owned 17 year old Tsvetomir Todorov from Ascoli for £300k. As well as playing in Europe, Napoli and their manager, Lord Weeman, has spent the highest amount of money on a permanent single player during the first month. They spent £2.4m to bring 34-year-old ex-Argentine international Martin Palermo from Boca Juniors. In the Intertoto Cup Napoli recorded a comfortable 6-2 aggregate win over Saturn in the 3rd Qualifying Round. Ben Taylor at Fiorentina is another manager to have spent quite a bit of money during the first month as he spent £2.8m to co-own Torino’s highly rated right winger Alessandro Rosina. Mr Taylor also brought in 24-year-old left winger Emil Hallfredsson for £1.3m from Reggina. The fourth manager to sign a permanent player was Theo Stigarakis as he signed Davide Moro, an Italian central midfielder to strengthen Catania’s midfield. He was signed for £80k from Empoli.

    Much like the Big Four in England, there are also 4 teams in Italy which all look capable of winning the title. Inter are looking like favourites at the moment as they have won all of their friendlies. Ben Cee is the manager at Inter and is on the lookout for some new talent, and has made offers for both Coutinho and Kuzmanovic. Another of the team tipped as a title challenger is Roma and their manager Clark Aitken will want to impress the fans and stay in the job as long as possible. They have also recorded a few easy victories in their few friendlies and the manager doesn’t seem to want to bring in any new faces to the team for the time being.

    The only other female manager in the game is Lisa Jeffries and she is the manager of another title challenger, Juventus. Having already got offers for one of their best players, Mauro Camoranesi, Lisa is already looking for a player to replace him. Miguel Veloso and Zdravko Kuzmanovic have both been rumoured to be joining the club, even though no offers have been made at the moment. A.C. Milan are the final team who are likely to be battling for the title, and are predicted to finish in 4th place, but I’m sure their manager Will de Mote will be expecting to finish higher than that. Weirdly A.C. Milan (as well as many of the other teams in Serie A) have a lot of other teams from the same division listed as rivals, so the Milan fans are up for an exciting season!

    With a chairman who is willing to listen to offers, Neppo Monster at Cagliari may find himself jobless before long if a takeover bid is completed and the new Chairman wants a new manager. All Monster can do is wait, or maybe do so well that the chairman wouldn’t dream of sacking him. Chievo are one of the favourites to get relegated from Serie A this season, but I’m sure Mathias Brunckhorst will try his best to guide his new team away from relegation and hopefully to a safe mid-table position for the season. The team has not done much to prepare for the season yet however, playing just one friendly so far. Lecce, like Chievio, are tipped as one of the favourites to go down, so it will be a tough task for their manager Super Lampard to save them from relegation. Lampard has set his sights on Ali Karimi, an Iran international, and should seal the signing within the next couple of days for £2.2m.

    Genoa’s manager Cardio Vascular is also after Claudio Pizarro, just like Robert Boyle at Blackburn. Blackburn were favourites to sign the striker, but Genoa have also offered him a contract. They are potentially a top half team, but will have to work extremely hard to achieve a top half position this season. Lazio, remember them? Lazio used to be one of the top teams in the Serie A but have got progressively worse through the last few seasons and have now turned in to a mid-table team. Manager Jonte Rhodes has spent £2.7m to co-own 3 players so far, and in the long run the South African manager will be hoping to get Lazio back up to the top of Serie A.

    Arguably the best team in the world these days is Siena, and their manager James Ridley is also one of the greatest managers to ever walk on the planet. Nah, I’m joking. Siena are no more than a mid-table side and that is all they can really expect this season. They just need to hope they don’t get dragged in to a relegation battle if they hit a run of bad form. Torino are set to finish around about the same place as Siena this season and their manager dafuge will be trying his best to accomplish this. Their pre-season form so far has been terrible though as they have lost both of their friendly matches so far. dafuge will be hoping that they don’t take this form in to their league campaign. Finally we move on to Udinese who will definitely be looking for a place in a European Competition next season. It is not going to be easy though as there are other teams like Palermo who also want to finish in a European spot this season. Tyler Burrows will do his best though and Udinese should be able to finish in the top 7 without too much trouble if everything goes to plan.


    Manager of the Update
    Finally I have got to choose my manager of the update. It is a tough one this month as nothing much has happened so I’m going to award it to Manchester City manager Liam Ferguson purely because he managed to spend more than all the other teams combined, as well as progressing through to the next round of the UEFA Cup with ease. Congratulations Liam!

    Default Re: 60 to One

    Writer’s Notes: You’ve already read this update, but it slots in here for a nice neat thread. Read it again, why not?

    Update 1 – canvey!!
    Years: 0, Months: 1, Days: 24

    The pre-season kicked into life in all three of Europe’s best leagues, but it was England in particular that played quite a number of friendlies, with Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City netting the most pre-season goals, an unanswered 18, included in that an 8-0 aggregate win over FK Vetra Vilnius in the UEFA Cup 1st Qualifying Round. Aside from the 5-0 win at the Emirates, a 4-0 win over RKC WAALWIJK during a tour of the Netherlands was a game full of goals. However, the results were to be expected from the Englishman, after he splashed the cash on João Moutinho and Vagner Love for a combined £29M, the highest spend of any manager in the competition.

    Zach Machios’s Portsmouth made an attempt to come close, however, although their sum of £4.7M on River Plate’s Diego Buonanotte was counter-balanced with the sale of Richard Hughes to Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough for £1.6M. The result weren’t as free-flowing for Portsmouth, who didn’t have any competitive games and had an unremarkable pre-season. A 3-0 win over Havant and Waterlooville was a highlight, while a 0-2 loss to Benfica was not.

    It is difficult at this stage for any chairman to be able to judge their manager’s performance, although the job is made easier for those who have played competitive football. While every manager’s job is still Stable, the Chairman of Lord Weeman’s Napoli should be happy with a 8-1 aggregate win over Tavria Simferopol of Ukraine, the highlight being the 5-1 win away at Lokomotyv. This without any spend on the books must be the icing on the cake for the ‘Young and Talented Manager’.

    Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo were also in competitive action, and a 6-0 friendly result followed a 3-0 secure aggregate win over Elfsborg in the Intertoto Cup. He was one of 40 managers not to have spent a penny, another being Leo Dodge at Tottenham. Loaning out Ricardo Rocha, however, brought him a £220k fee to swell the coffers from Martin Bojangles’s Hull. Dodge’s pre-season highlight was a 4-1 win over Leyton Orient while Bojangles enjoyed the 6-0 demolition of Winterton as well as two signings to accompany Rocha, with his total spend £450k. Joe Gleeson’s Espanyol also spent a little, Xabier Otermín costing £10k.

    Fiorentina, while not playing any matches, did their best to spend money, with Ben Taylor shelling out on two co-ownership deals costing combined £4.1M. This put £1.3M and £2.8M in the pockets of James Salter and dafuge respectively, managers of Reggina and Torino. Meanwhile, Taylor made some income of £375k, including the £140k loan fee from Phill Ewles as Martin Jørgensen joined Valladolid for the season. He would have played in Ewles’s 3-0 win over Real Oviedo in a pre-season friendly.

    Everyone always wants to know how the Big Four got on, and Chelsea, managed by Andre da Conceiçao, made the only transfer action among them, making £2.6M from the signing of Federico Vilar deducted from the sale of Michael Ballack, the former from Atlante, and the latter to FC Bayern. Liverpool, meanwhile, suffered a minor upset handed to them by Mikey Twigge’s Palermo. That 1-2 was the only loss of their pre-season, however, and a 5-0 win over Crewe with a 3-0 over Zaragoza were highlights for Jeremy English’s first 24 days in charge.

    Mark Cator’s Aston Villa were the final team to be involved in European competiton, and a 1-2 defeat at Villa Park was no problem as they stole to a 4-3 aggregate win over SK Sturm Graz of Austria. A 3-0 win over Wycombe and a respectable 0-0 draw with Dutchmen PSV were other highlights from the pre-season, while the competition’s Dutch manager, Will de Mote, did absolutely nothing at A.C. Milan during his first 24 days. It wasn’t because Ben Cee’s Inter were using the ground, as they had travelled first to Germany where they lost 1-2 to Schalke, and then to England where Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton were on the unfortunate end of a 2-0 win for Cee’s boys. A 4-1 victory was their only pre-season win from four while their chocolate ice cream-loving manager spent £3.9M on two players.

    Their loss (monetary) was the biggest in England other than Man City’s, but Tim Aubel at Fulham gave it a good go strengthening his squad with 2 players, one on loan, for £3.1M, and a 1-3 loss to Sporting CP was a blip on an otherwise unbeaten, but now finished, pre-season. Udinese also made a substantial loss, Tyler Burrow’s spending £2.8M on two co-ownership deals, while losing 1-2 to Gimnàstic in their first friendly. Another Italian side, Bologna, managed by Mikael Schøler, made a £2.65M loss with one player out and two in, including Daniel Gastaldello now being co-owned with Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria. Sampdoria played 2 pre-season games, including a 4-0 win over Germany’s St. Pauli.

    At Numancia, Jellybean Man scored 10 pre-season goals, including a 5-0 win C.D. Mirandés. Sirus Lannock at Málaga went better, however, and his 12 unanswered pre-season goals included the 7-0 thrashing of União Desportiva de Leiria. bermybhoy's Atlanta also scored 12 goals, but conceded 2, one of those being in their 8-1 destruction of Crotone. An £850k incoming co-ownership deal was another attribute in the Scotsman’s pre-season. Scott Tysoe’s Sunderland scored 14 in their pre-season, including a 5-0 win over Macclesfield but a 0-3 loss to Coventry. Tysoe also came close to clinching a deal with Wigan’s Mario Melchiot, after Brettney Joven accepted the £2.7M offer, but the contract was rejected.

    Staying in England, Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United scored 11 pre-season goals in the form of two 4-0 wins and a 3-0 win. The Rwandan didn’t spend or take any money, in contrast to James Ridley at Siena, who made and spent £1.4M while also recording a 3-0 win over Tubize as one of two pre-season results. James Salter, already having received money from Fiorentina, made a further £2.6M to bring his income to £3.9M, £1.2M of which he spent on a Player Exchange from Ascoli. A 4-0 and a 2-1 pre-season win were other highlights, the former against Portugalete and the latter against Pontevedra. Mathias Brunckhorst spent £230k at Chievo, but also won 4-0 against Sambenedettese. Joe Seddon’s Getafe won 5-0 in one pre-season friendly against Granada 74, but Athletic went 2 better with a 7-0 victory over Zalla, this coupled with a 6-0 victory over Gernika, both masterminded by Australian David Machine.

    Super Lampard’s Lecce made a significant loss, spending £2.2M on Ali Karimi as part of two transfers, and bringing in £180k resulting in a loss of £2.32M. Cardiovascular at Genoa spun a small profit of £16,000 with the sale of Mirko Lamantia, while also drawing 1-1 with Barcelona B, the A-Team managed by Haowan Madridstas with their 4-0 win over Deportivo B being the only highlight of July. Jonte Rhodes’s Lazio won one game 3-0 but lost the next 2-3, while Roma, managed by Clark Aitken, won 3-0 over Rio Ave, Portugal, in their only action of the 24 days. Rounding off the report, Tom Smith’s Arsenal played three pre-season games including a 4-0 win over Boreham Wood, while Andy Morton’s Real Sporting beat San Martín 7-0.

    Manager of the Update
    My manager of the update has to go to

    James Salter, Reggina

    Although Liam Ferguson had a great pre-season, that wasn’t without a massive spend, and Neji Hyuuga was also a candidate after 9 unanswered goals and no spending of money, including European progression, but James Salter excelled on both fronts: he made a cunning profit of £2.7M, the highest of any club, with Andre da Conceiçao’s come close, £100k short, and he also won both his friendly games by a combined score of 6-1.

Both Tom Smith’s Arsenal and Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City have knocked in a considerable number of goals, but my decision goes to Dee because of the lower quality of players available to him.


    Good start weeeman I just hope all your reports mean good news for me

    Writer’s Notes: You’ve already read this one too. Déjà vu anyone? Ridleys's update will arrive soon after.

    Update 2 – canvey!!
    Years: 0, Months: 2, Days: 55

    Two months have passed in the competition and 100% of the managerial fleet remain intact. Despite the commencement of the competitive season, managers like Robert Boyle at Blackburn, James Ridley at Siena and Andy Morton at Sporting are still considered ‘Stable’, despite being bottom of their respective leagues.

    European action has also taken place, with Champions League games for Arsenal and Liverpool. Tom Smith’s Arsenal made a solid start to their 2008-09 European campaign, beating Vitória Guimarães 5-1 on aggregate, a 3-0 win at the Emirates slightly marred by conceding a goal at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques. Their manager hasn’t been very active in the transfer window as it ground itself virtually shut yesterday, with only a loan release to Crystal Palace. Jeremy English at Liverpool, raised £200k from the sale of Scottish youngster Gary Mackay-Steven to Blackpool on the transfer window’s final day, and despite lying only 15th in the Premier League with only 2 points, they beat Austria’s Rapid Wien with two 2-0 victories.

    Moving over to Spain, the biggest transfer news of the month would have been Sergio’s £2.3M move from Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo to Espanyol, the latter managed by hungry Joe Gleeson. However, this was matched by the blowing of the same amount on Nino, mastermined by Wobill Luman’s Betis. Considering that they currently lie 16th in the La Liga table, the transfer will have to have some time to have its effect. Jack Browne also made a mint as the Sevilla manager sold his £2.2M prospect Aquivaldo Mosquera to Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid. Despite being top of the table after the one game played, the illustrious purchase by Englishman Manager was not great, as Mosquera got a 5.4 in his first game despite the 3-0 win over Deportivo.

    The Italian Serie A has only played one game also, but it’s little surprise that Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan are top, with the bigger surprise being the spectacular fashion by which opponents Fiorentina lost. Considering that Ben Taylor’s side spent the most among Italian teams for the month, £2.8M on a co-ownership deal from dafuge’s Torino, a 0-3 loss was not amiable. Juventus, managed by the charming Lisa Jeffries, made the biggest income from one transfer, selling Italian Mauro Camoranesi to Chelsea for £9.25M. Chelsea, managed by Portuguese Andre da Conceiçao, lie top of the Premier League after a 9-1 combined score from their first three games. This included two 3-0 victories, with Zach Machios’s Portsmouth coming closest to an upset, managing to score one in concession of their three.

    Yet da Conceiçao’s £9.25M purchase, which wiped out his previous profit for July, was not the highest in the Premier League for the month, and it was of course Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City who spent like they had ants in their pants, with a combined slush out of £39.25M on three players: Darijo Srna, Chinedu Obasi and Antonio Valencia. The latter was a great windfall for female Wigan manager Brettney Joven, the £10.5M funding the season’s campaign which has them in 11th place. As for Manchester City, they could be doing better, with a win, draw and loss putting them in 8th. Their European exploits have been admirable, however, a combined 7-0 win over Slovaks Spartak Trnava putting them into the UEFA Cup.

    Napoli, managed by Lord Weeman, also won their way to a victory of the same score in the same round of the UEFA Cup, the 2nd Qualifying, their opponents being Vojvodina from Serbia. With a 3-0 victory over bottom-placed Siena, they sit in second placed in Serie A, their only transfer being the loan release of a 17-year-old to Giugliano. Their fierce rivals, of which they have a lot, Roma, were challenging them for those high positions, having won 2-0 under the management of Clark Aitken. Udinese took up the last of the spots among the Spanish top four, with their Andorran manager Tyler Burrows having won 2-0 and spent no further on the £2.8M from last month. They also lost 0-1 to Liverpool in a pre-season friendly.

    Phill Ewles’s Valladolid lay just inside the cusp of the relegation zone in La Liga, having lost their first game 0-2 at home at the hands of Cristobal Blanco’s Recreativo. Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca lie just above Valladolid in 17th, having also lost 0-2, but having spent £650k on two late transfers, including Niko Kovac for £400k, with a further free transfer in of Stephen Appiah. Mallorca’s conquerers, Barcelona, lie 4th, with Haowan Madridstas, making no transfer impact expect the loaning out of two youngsters early in the month. However, an epic 8-0 win at the Nou Camp contributed to a 11-0 win aggregate win over Poles Wisla Krakow in the Champions League third qualifying round. Unbeaten in all competitions, including friendlies, and having conceded only three goals, the Spanishman’s team were looking formidable.

    Back in England, Sunderland found themselves in the favourable position of third. Their manager, Scott Tysoe, had won two of his three games, the other being a respectable 2-2 draw at Anfield. Zach Machios had guided his Portsmouth team to only 1 point in the League, but the highlight of their month was without doubt the 2-2 draw with Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United that won them the Community Shield on penalties. Machios spent a further £1.5M on a player from Hearts while loaning out two players to Charlton.

    The Carling Cup Second Round had been played and 11 Premier League teams made it through to the next stage, including Whoopy Dee’s West Ham who beat Huddersfield 2-0, and Bolton, managed by Arnold J. Rimmer, beat Tranmere 4-0. Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough and Shazad Ali’s Newcastle won 3-1 over their opponents while Blackburn’s 3-0 away win over Coventry sent them through.

    In Italy there was the Italian Cup, and not a single Serie A side lost in the Third Qualifying Round, although it took Cardio Vascular’s Genoa extra time to beat Mantova 3-0. Reggina, managed by last month’s manager of the update James Salter, had the best performance, 4-0 over Avellino while Theo Stigarakis’s Catania squeaked past Ravenna. Unfortunately for Salter, he lost his first game 1-2 to Juventus, while Stigarakis’s Catania team lie just above the drop zone after a 0-2 defeat away from home.

    The Spanish Super Cup was a tightly contested game between two teams. While Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid won the away leg 2-1, it was Jimmy Riddle’s Valencia who won the trophy after a spectacular 4-0 win at the Bernabéu. Riddle also beat Joe Seddon’s Getafe 1-0 to take a 100% record at the end of the month. The Italian Super Cup was won 2-1 over Roma by Ben Cee’s Inter. The Singaporean took extra time to do it but lifted the trophy to tie in with their 2-1 opening day win over bermybhoy’s Atalanta.

    There were a few other major transfers in the Italian leagues, the majority of which were co-ownerships. Vincenzo Fiorello half-joined Juventus from Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria and Mikey Twigge signed Andrea Esposito on a co-ownership from Mikael Schøler’s Bologna for £1.1M.

    In European competition, Mark Cator’s Aston Villa beat Siroki Brijeg 8-0 in the UEFA Cup including a 6-0 win at Villa Park. Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United beat Zenit St. Petersburg to record a UEFA Super Cup win, yet there are treats in store in the Champions League, with a few meetings of managers in the competition. Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal will face Tom Smith’s Arsenal in Group B, that group also including Steve McClaren’s FC Twente. Fiorentina will meet Manchester United while the undoubted group of the Group Stage from our point of view is Group E. Clark Aitken, Cool Manager and Jeremy English will meet as Roma, Atlético Madrid and Liverpool take on Rangers.

    In the UEFA Cup, Bryan McGuinness’s Everton will face Wisla Krakow, and Maz Armley’s Racing face AaB of Denmark in two of the highlighted ties out of many. With another month complete, all managers remain a perfect length from the drop, yet what does next month have in store? As well as up to three European games, each league is playing at least three fixtures, and there are cup rounds in England and Italy. While the next few weeks should be a safe period for everyone involved, this is the point at which the foundations for the season are laid. Get them wrong and you might find yourself one of the first to go.

    Manager of the Update
    It’s a bit more difficult to give a manager of the update this time around, with so many teams excelling, but my personal choice is

    Lawrence Lazewski, Valencia

    due to the Spanish Super Cup win including a beautiful performance at Real Madrid’s home ground. Scott Tysoe could have won it in view of Sunderland’s above-average league position early on, or Ben Cee’s Inter for winning the Italian Super Cup. At the end of the day, for Riddle to also bring a win in the first game he just gets the edge on this one.

    Update 2 – weeeman27bob
    Years: 0, Months: 2, Days: 55


    As August turns to September, three teams have already won trophies. Chief among them are Maurice Jobson’s Man United, who have picked up two trophies so far. A one goal victory over Zach Machios’s Portsmouth earned them the Community Shield. This was followed by a penalty shootout win against Zenit St Petersburg to add the European Super Cup to their collection. Valencia’s 0-2 loss at home in the first leg always meant winning the Spanish Super Cup would be hard, and after a draw at the Santiago Bernabéu, Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid have had a chance to celebrate. However, not contented with just a trophy, Volman also snapped up Yury Zhirkov for a massive £15.5M. In Italy, Inter picked up the Super Cup after a victory over Clark Aitken’s Roma. Ben Cee’s team, though, needed a slice of luck, winning after scoring a penalty.

    With only six clubs being involved in cups so far, much of the interest has been transfer linked. The biggest spenders come as no surprise, with Man City splashing out over £64M on just five players. Fans at Eastlands though can look forward to Darijo Srna and Antonio Valencia ripping it up on the pitch, amongst others. Action in Italy sees Zdravko Kuzmanovic shared between Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina and Inter after the San Siro club made a £7.5M offer. Action has been limited elsewhere with Juventus making the only other big signing. Lisa Jeffries has chosen experience over youth in signing veteran keeper Antonin Kinsky. Jeffries has also offloaded sweeper Nicola Legrottaglie to Atlético Madrid, which should please Cool Manager. Looking back to England, Scott Tysoe has bought two Scots to the club, one from each of the Old Firm respectively. This has helped the Blackcats rise to fourth in the table after three games, winning two of them.

    Tom Smith’s Arsenal lead the race so far with a 100% record. They also progressed in Europe with a 5-0 aggregate victory over Vitória Sport Club. They were overshadowed in qualifying though by Jeremy English’s dominant Liverpool who stuck seven goals past Finns Tampere United. Also progressing through to the group stages are Atlético Madrid, Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona, Fiorentina and Juventus.

    In the UEFA cup, Neji Hyuuga’s Derportivo made easy work of Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjaroar, a Finnish team, winning their tie by six goals. Liam Ferguson’s Man City fared even better, putting eight goals past FC Haka.

    Returning to the Premiership, Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke sit bottom of the league with no points from their three games. Aston Villa and Hull join them. Mark Cator, however, should not be too disappointed after two tough fixtures against Chelsea and Liverpool. Martin Bojangles should be unhappier though, despite a draw against Chelsea, as Hull lost to Brighton in the League Cup. Portsmouth may not have beaten Man United, but pulled off the shock of the league so far in defeating Liverpool three goals to one. This sees them ninth with a game in hand. Robert Boyle has had a mixed hand so far, gaining four points from the three games, after a scrappy win against Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough. Unlike their other newly arrived teams, Brucie Bonus’s West Brom are flying high in eighth place, but the jury is out on whether they will stay there. Also surprisingly high are Fulham, which will please Tim Aubel who has had two draws and a win so far.

    Shazad Ali may have signed Olexander Aliev, but has every right to be unhappy with Newcastle’s start to the season, picking up only one win. Bryan McGuinness’s Everton, and Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton are in similar positions.

    In Spain, Valencia and Villarreal sit atop the league after demolitions of Deportivo and Andy Morton’s Sporting, which much please Lars Tommersen. Cristobal Blanco and Sirus Lannock faced off at Recreativo, with Blanco’s team winning a closely fought game 3-2 to sit 7th in the table. The big game in Spain though was El Clasico, the legendary and fierce rivalry between Real Madrid and barcelona, with Real the victors in a thrilling five goal game, which pleased fans across the globe. In a slightly less watched game, Jellybean Man’s Numancia lost 1-2 to Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca, where the partying never stops. There were, somewhat surprisingly, no draws in Spain, but only because a late goal for Jack Browne’s Sevilla gave them the three points against Maz Armley’s Racing. Hopefully for Armley he’ll see his side racing back to the top. Betis beat Almería by two goals to see them sitting third in the table, meaning Wobill Luman is very happy indeed. Both Valladolid and Espanyol had a great start to the season, thanks to new managers Phill Ewles and Joe Gleeson, as they defeated David Machine’s Athletic and Saul Goode’s Osasuna by two goals to nil each.

    Like Spain, Italy shows the bizarre drawless start to the season. Da Hoover Man’s
    Sampdoria lead the league thanks to a three goals to one thumping of Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo. They are closely followed by Inter, then Jonte Rhodes’s Lazio. Rhodes’s new team beat James Salter’s Reggina at home, leaving Reggina’s manager with salt in his wounds. Lord Weeman’s Napoli pulled of the shock of the opening fixtures after beating AC Milan away. The shock result must put Will de Mote under scrutiny from the fans and he must hope his team’s performances improve. Clark Aitken’s Roma won the big game of the round at home to Juventus giving the Rome team great momentum as the season starts. Cardio Vascular will be angry with his Genoa team, who, after going a man down, let in two soft goals to James Ridley’s Siena. dafuge’s Torino also lost by the same scoreline to Mikael Schøler’s Bologna. Finally, Super Lampard has every right to be pleased with his team after they defeated Tyler Burrows’s Udinese by two goals.



    Manager of the Update


    There haven’t been any outstanding performances, but this month’s winner is;

    Tom Smith, Arsenal

    Zach Machios may have caused an upset with his Portsmouth team, but couldn’t find a way to beat Man United. Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid might have won a trophy and beaten Barcelona, but they were expected to. The same can be said of Maurice Jobson’s Man United who won two trophies, but haven’t been the best in the Premiership. Smith has led Arsenal to the top of the league, and into the next round of Europe with a 100% record with three clean sheets in three games in the EPL.

    Very nice to see Lazio doing well in Italy (Weeman Style), but it is a worry, overperforming can also lead to a firing by not keeping it up.

    Writer’s Notes: Apologies on the late update. You will have read this update before as well.

    Update 2 - Ridleys

    Years: 0, Months: 2, Days: 55

    Two months now gone, and three trophies have already been won. Congratulations to Maurice Jobson, Ben Cee and Lucas Volman, managers of Manchester United, Inter and Real Madrid, who all recorded victories in their country’s Community Shield/Super Cup. Some more good news for everyone else is that once again there were no sackings this month, so everybody still has a job.

    Manchester United have got off to a winning start in the league as well, with Jobson guiding them to 2 wins from their 2 games, as well as winning the European Super Cup 3-1 against Zenit St. Petersburg at the end of the month, Ben Cee drew his first game against Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina 1-1. Volman, who spent £14.5m on Yury Zhirkov at the beginning of the month, lost his first league game 0-1 against rivals Barcelona.

    Wigan and their female manager Brettney Joven have dived further in to their transfer budget, signing 4 more players in August ,Roy Beerens; Artavazd Karamyan; Marek Sapaya and Roman Shirokov, for a combined fee of £9.1m. Scott Tysoe at Sunderland brought in 2 loanees, Emerson and Mariano Pavone, for a combined fee of £1.54m to add to his attack and midfield. Sunderland are 7th in the league with 2 wins and 1 defeat, whereas Wigan are at the opposite side of the table and are lying in 17th place.

    It has not been such a pleasurable start for the other manager in Manchester, Liam Ferguson, manager of ManchesterCity, who, despite spending a lot of money in the summer, find’s his team rock bottom of the Premiership, losing all 3 of their games so far, against Liverpool 2-1, Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough 2-1 and Chelsea. Nakano’s Middlesbrough are 5th in the league, taking 6 points from the 9 available in the first three games.

    It has been a much better start for Bryan McGuinness however, as his Everton side lead the Premiership alongside Chelsea and their manager Andre da Conceiçao. Both managers have recorded 2 wins and 1 draw so far from their 3 league games. Bryan McGuinness also won the Manager of the Month award for the Premiership, with da Conceiçao in second place and Mark Cator, manager of Aston Villa, in third place, as he guided Aston Villa to 2 victories and 1 defeat in his first 3 league games. In Europe, Tom Smith, at Arsenaland Jeremy English, at Liverpool,progressed through to the Group Stages of the Champions League with comfortable 3rd Qualifying Round wins. In the UEFA Cup both ManchesterCity and Aston Villa both progressed through to the UEFA Cup 1st Round.

    In the English League Cup 12 managers were taking part. 11 of the 12 matches have been played, with ManchesterCity to play their game against Watford next month. Fréderico Canvey, at Stoke, beat their Championship opponent, Coventry, 1-0. There was also a good win for HullCity and their manager Martin Bojangles as they thrashed Crewe Alexandra 4-0. Whoopy Dee was 1 of only 2 Premiership managers to get knocked out of the competition at this early stage as they lost on penalties against Swansea. Sunderland were the other Premiership team to get knocked out. Stoke will play Southampton in the next round and Hull are to play away at Everton.

    With only 1 league game played in both Italy and Spain it is difficult to say who has made a brilliant start and who has not been as effective. Sevilla manager, Jack Browne made a very impressive start to his league career though as he dominated Atlético Madridand their manager, Cool Manager, and won comfortably 3-0. Atlético Madrid are joint bottom of La Liga with Neilio’s Almeria, who also got defeated 3-0, against Lars Tommersen, manager of Villarreal who join Sevilla up the top of the table at this early stage.

    Haowan Madridstas at Barcelona also recorded an important win as they overcame huge rivals Real Madrid 1-0. They also progressed in to the Group Stages of the Champions League, beating Partizan 8-1 on aggregate in the 3rd Qualifying Round. Across the city at Espanyol it was a less convincing start, as manager Joe Gleeson, lost his first league game in charge 1-0 against Jellybean Man’s survival hopefuls Numancia. At. Madrid also progressed through to the Champions League Group Stages, beating Panathinaikos 6-0 over both legs.

    Over in Italy Da Hoover Man, manager of Sampdoria, has made more signings over the last month. He brought in 3 more players, Jorge Martinez; Róbert Feczesin and Antonino Barillà, on co-ownership deals as well as one player, Gianluca Miolli, who was signed on a free transfer. These 4 players came to a total of £2.15m. Lazio manager Jonte Rhodes also brought in 3 more players on co-ownership deals, these 4 players were Lino Marzorati, Adam Vaas and Marco Zambelli and cost a total of £1.7m. With all these signings though the squad is becoming unsettled and Sampdoria lost their first game of the season 3-1. Lazio won their game easily 3-0.

    bermybhoy’s Atalanta recorded the best win of the first round of league fixtures as they beat James Salter’s Reggina 3-1. Atalanta are joint top with Juventus and AC Milan, whereas Reggina are right down the bottom of the table in 18th place. The only other female manager in the competition, Lisa Jeffries, manager of Juventus, beat Sampdoria 3-1 in their first game of the season.

    All 12 managers who were taking part in the Italian Cup managed to get through to the next round (the 4th Qualifying Round). The most notable results were for Mikey Twigge,manager of Palermo, and dafuge, manager of Torino. Both teams struggled against their Serie B opposition and it took extra time and even penalties for Twigge’s side to progress through to the next round. There was a big victory for Siena manager, James Ridley, who guided his team to a 3-0 win. Palermo face AlbinoLeffe in the next round, Torino were drawn against Modena and Siena will play against Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo, who beat Treviso 3-0 in their 3rd Qualifying Round tie.

    Manager of the Update
    My manager of the update has to go to;

    Bryan McGuinness, Everton

    Another tough one this month with not many games, but the Everton manager has looked very comfortable so far at Everton and top the Premiership, scoring 9 goals in the process. Manchester United manager
    Maurice Jobson, also had a good start to the season, winning both the Community Shield and the European Super Cup, but I don’t think the team has shown their full potential yet. Wigan manager Brettney Joven also deserves a shout as she, despite bringing in 6 players in the transfer window, has made a profit of £6.25m so far this season just from transfers.

    Naming and Shaming

    Obviously there are two parts to every sign-up: the updates and the participation of those involved. The following people have not made any posts in either of the two threads. While you won't get dropped from this sign-up if you are not posting, if you win yet haven't posted very often then you may be stripped of your title, and it may damage your chances of getting into any future sign-ups of ours. Fair enough if you're a lurker, but post now and then to let us know we're appreciated.

    Provided things don't go insanely wrong, we'll provide the next update for you tomorrow evening.

    GCB has a sign-up, a predictions league and a new sign-up on the go, as well as a wedding in a month or so

    He's pretty busy so that's why he probably hasn't posted

    Update 3 – weeeman27bob
    Years: 0, Months: 3, Days: 85



    Three months in, all managers remain stable and a massive seven teams are still unbeaten. In England the leaders come as no surprise, with Tom Smith’s Arsenal yet to concede a single goal. It looks like it will be tough beating the Gunners at this rate. Also unbeaten in England are Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea, but sandwiched between the two are Man City with thirteen points.

    The most impressive performances, however, have come from opposite ends of the country. Robert Boyle’s Blackburn sit an impressive fourth and with wins over Tim Aubel’s Fulham and Martin Bojangles’s Hull, Boyle has had a good start to the season. The other star performers are Portsmouth who sit fifth. Zach Machios’s team have been far from impressive though, scraping wins against Shazad Ali’s Newcastle and Whoopy Dee’s West Ham by single goals and going down to West Brom.

    In La Liga, the race for the title is much closer. Lawrence Lazewski should be pleasantly pleased with his team’s performances so far as Valencia top the table. Separated by just two goals are Real Madrid, who, like Valencia, are unbeaten after five games. In fact, both would have 100% records had they not shared the points after a 0-0 draw between them.

    Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca are the surprise package in the Spanish league so far with three wins and two draws so far. Also doing much better than expected, are Sirus Lannock’s Málaga who sit in eighth, a massive eleven places above where the media predicted them.

    In Italy, the surprises are coming from the other direction. Juventus lie only fifteenth after five games with only one victory. Lisa Jeffries must start to improve otherwise she could find herself out of the competition.

    Unsurprisingly, a Milan teams sits top. In this case it’s Ben Cee’s Inter who have earned thirteen points from their five games. Joining them are Lord Weeman’s Napoli, who are followed by Tyler Burrows’s Udinese who have scored a goal in every game so far this season. Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina sit seventh with seven points, and seven goals both scored and conceded.

    Although Taylor might not be happy with their league form, he should be delighted with the form in Europe. His team smashed Real Madrid by three goals to nil and sit top of their group. The only other teams to clash were Chelsea and Villarreal. Lars Tommersen may be disappointed with his team’s defeat away in England, but will hope to do better when they host the London giants at home.

    Cool Manager’s Atlético beat Dutch team PSV by three goals to nil. Equally impressive were Man United who slotted three goals past Greeks Olympiakos. Maurice Jobson’s team should look to progress far in this competition and have got the start they needed.

    Their rivals, Paul Hartman’s Liverpool, did better though, beating another Greek team, this time Panathinaikos, by four goals. The Reds haven’t had the best start in the league though, only sitting ninth. Barcelona are also lower than expected in only fifth position. Like Liverpool though, they seem to be a different team in Europe, beating Ukranians Shaktar Donetsk by two goals. The same can be said of Juventus who top their Champions League group.

    In the first round of the UEFA Cup Valencia continued their impressive form in beating Turks Sivasspor in the first leg of the first round by three thrilling goals. Mark Cator’s Aston Villa bettered the Spaniard’s goal tally defeating Vitória Futebol Clube 4-0. The most exciting tie of the first round was between Maz Armley’s Racing and Napoli, with the Spanish team running out 4-2 winners. Leo Dodge’s Spurs also won, beating FC Salzburg by three goals.

    AC Milan have been disappointing in Europe with only a draw against much weaker Turkish opposition. Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo managed a scrappy win against AS Aris Salonoka, a Greek team. Their league form has been even worse , with only three points from their five games.

    However, even that is an improvement on what Joe Seddon’s Getafe have managed, sitting bottom of La Liga with only one point. They are joined in the relegation zone by Jellybean Man’s Numancia and Phill Ewles’s Valladolid, who both have one win each.

    Despite winning the first Manager of the Update, Whoopy Dee’s West Ham sit bottom of the Premier League table, with only four points. Hull and Bryan McGuinness’s Everton join them. However with only three points separating twentieth and twelfth, things could be set to change.

    Northern Italian team Torino, managed by dafuge, sit bottom of Serie A, securing points from just two draws. Just one place above them are bermyboy’s Atalanta. However, with them are Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo, level on points.

    No Italian teams went out to lower league opposition in the Italian cup, but Neppo Monster’s Cagliari and Mikael Schøler Bologna will be taking no further part in the competition after being defeated by Catania and Genoa by 0-2 and 1-2 respectively.

    The biggest name to fall in the third round of the English League Cup were Arsenal, defeated one goal to three by Chelsea. Seven other Premiership teams were knocked out, of which Stoke and Brettney Joven’s Wigan went out to Championship opposition. The tie of the round was Fulham’s penalty victory over Aston Villa after two late goals gave the Midlands team the chance to win it from spot kicks, but it wasn’t to be.


    Manager of the Update

    This month’s manager of the Update is…

    Tom Hamilton, Mallorca

    Arsenal may not have conceded a goal in Europe or the Premiership, but Tom Smith’s team failed to beat Chelsea. Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia have been impressive, but are a strong team and haven’t faced great opposition. Tyler Burrow’s Udinese won in Europe, and played well in the league, but again haven’t faced the strongest teams. Hamilton’s team are punching greatly above their weight and if their form continues they could end up in Europe.

    Default Re: 60 to One

    Writer's Notes: You've read this one before. Ridleys's will follow soon after, he's watching the cricket or something. Everyone needs a hobby I suppose. Good news too in that mikeytwigge was online two days ago. He seems to be alive.

    Update 3 – canvey!!
    Years: 0, Months: 3, Days: 85

    The managers are already 85% into their first 100 days at their clubs, and Clark Aitken’s Roma have strolled to a 3-point lead at the top of Serie A. They are joined by the other two table toppers at the three leagues of focus, as Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia sit atop La Liga and Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United are the leaders of the Premier League.

    However, while the Red Devils have won all six league games under their Rwandan manager, scoring 10 goals in the process, three English sides have yet to win in the Premier League. Drawing two and losing two this month, Martin Bojangles’s Hull City lie screwed to the bottom of the table. Joining them in the relegation zone are Tim Aubel’s Fulham, who beat Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough 2-0 in the League Cup yet drew 2-2 in the league, and Aston Villa. The latter, managed by Mark Cator, beat Brøndby 2-0 in the First Leg of their UEFA Cup 1st Round tie, yet lost 1-2 to Manchester United in the League Cup 3rd Round.

    Italy has four teams yet to win, although one is doing a bit better than the others. Cardio Vascular’s Genoa sit 15th in the league, and although they haven’t won, they have drawn 4 compared to the 1 draw each of the other three winless teams. This month, they managed 1-1 draws at home to Lazio and Udinese, while progressing 1-0 away over Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo in the Italian Cup. They also managed to hold Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus to a 1-1 draw at the Old Lady’s home ground.

    As well as Chievo, three other Serie A teams were knocked out in the Italian Cup Fourth Qualifying Round. Jonte Rhodes’s Lazio travelled to James Salter’s Reggina where they lost 0-1, and James Ridley’s Siena and Super Lampard’s Lecce also found themselves out of the tournament, the latter on the wrong side of a 3-0 win for Mikael Schøler’s Bologna. Neppo Monster’s Cagliari also find themselves through to the First Round after a 4-1 win over Serie B side Cittadella.

    In Spain, only one team has failed to win so far, that being Getafe, managed by Englishman Joe Seddon. Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona lie below expectations in 5th place, and have also started their Champions League Group Stage abymslly, losing 0-2 to Zenit St. Petersburg. Elsewhere in the Champions League, Clark Aitken’s Roma have brought themselves to two wins, over Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid and Jeremy English’s Liverpool. The Mersyside team also lie in 15th place in their domestic league, their worst result of the month being a 0-2 loss away to Whoopy Dee’s West Ham. However, they did progress to the League Cup 4th Round after a 2-1 win at St. Andrews.

    Ten Premier League sides were culled in the 3rd Round of the competition, including three against Championship opposition. Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton defeated Oldham, one of only two sub-championship teams to reach this stage, scoring 5 goals with both sides seeing red. Brucie Bonus’s West Bromwich Albion took extra time to do so, but knocked out the side of female manager Brettney Joven, Wigan. The three Premier League sides aforementioned, losing to Championship opponents, were Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke and Leo Dodge’s Tottenham, both away, the latter to Wolves after extra time, yet Portsmouth lost out on penalties as Reading came to visit Zach Machios’s team on the South Coast.

    A.C. Milan have started their UEFA Cup campaign successfully, beating Standard Liege 3-0 in the First Leg of the First Round, hosted in Italy. Will de Mote’s team have started solidly in Serie A, yet a loss in one game has cost them as they are in 5th place. With a game in hand, however, and a 3-0 win over Theo Stigarakis’s Catania, they are looking to power into touching distance of their defeators Roma. Sampdoria, another Italian side in the European competition, started well with a 2-0 win over Hibernian, Da Hoover Man’s team winning at Easter Road Stadium, yet Lord Weeman’s Napoli lost their first leg 0-1 to FC København.

    Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid, tying in with last month’s Super Cup defeat, had a poor start to their Champions League campaign. While they conquered Shakhtar who visited from Ukraine, a trip to Germany in the form of a tie against Schalke 04 ended in a 1-4 defeat. Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea team have started their Champions League campaign in style with a double-whammy win, 1-0 over PSV and 3-0 away to Panathanaikos.

    Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal have scored the most goals in La Liga so far, an impressive 13, and sit in second place. With three 3-2 wins, their undoing for the month came in the form of Neilio’s Almería, while they also lost by the same scoreline, 1-2, to Bordeaux in the Champions League, their next European opponents being Steve McClaren’s FC Twente. Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca have had an indifferent start to the league, and this month they only lost to Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia, while beating Saul Goode’s Osasuna 2-1 and Jellybean Man’s Numancia 2-0.

    After 85 days in the job, all managers are currently Stable. October brings three things: league football, European football and Halloween! Will it be a horror story for any of our managers come the next update?

    Manager of the Update
    It’s a rather easy choice this month. The manager of the update must be;

    Clark Aitken, Roma

    Due to his unbeaten run of 6 games this month, which has propelled his team to first in both Serie A and his Champions League game. While Tom Smith’s Arsenal also haven’t lost, and neither have Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United, yet Aitken’s win over Liverpool edges it for him.

    The managers who are bottom of Serie A both have names that don't start with a capital (if that makes sense).

    Coincidence? I think not...

    Yes, the players don't have quite the same respect for them.

    Still very happy at Arsenal. It's all going very well. Didn't get manager of the month in either update, but I was considered. That's good enough for me.

    kutgw and it's nice to see mikeytwigge was online.
