    Writers Note: Another update you would have previously read and once again I apologise for posting my update late, I was busy watching the cricket.

    Update 3 - Ridleys

    Years: 0, Months: 3, Days: 85

    3 months have now passed in the competition, and all managers are still at their original clubs. The biggest shock so far is in the Premiership as West Ham, managed by Whoopy Dee, have fought there way to 2nd place in the League. They haven’t lost in 5 games now (all competitions) and Mr Dee claimed 2nd place in this months Manager of the Month in the Premiership. There has also been a shock result in the English League Cup, as Premiership Giants Chelsea crashed out to Bolton. Both managers, Andre da Conceiçao (Chelsea) and Arnold J. Rimmer (Bolton), both attacking style, but it was Bolton that came out on top. Despite losing in the League Cup, Chelsea top the league and haven’t lost a game, taking 16 points from 6 games. They won all 3 games this month, scoring 10 goals and conceding 0. They also beat FC Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League.

    Other unbeaten teams in the competition include Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina, who scored 15 goals in 4 games this month and unsurprisingly top the table. They even managed 6 goals in just 1 game against bermybhoy’s Atalanta who find themselves down in 16th position. Will de Mote, manager of A.C. Milan is the only other manager in Italy to have an unbeaten League record. A.C. Milan have 11 points and are 2 points behind Fiorentina. Over in Spain the only unbeaten side is Villarreal and their manager, Lars Tommersen. Villarreal also pulled off a magnificent victory over Jeremy English’s Liverpool in the Champions League. Liverpool are underperforming in the Premiership at the moment and are in an unlucky 13th place after defeats to Mark Cator’s Aston Villa and Lee Dodge’s Tottenham Hotspur.

    Manchester City, manager by Liam Ferguson, have improved after a terrible month in August. They only played 2 league games this month, but won both of them comfortably. They also beat Doncaster and Charlton Athletic in the League Cup 1st and 2nd Round respectively. It was a different story at Everton though. Their manager Bryan Mcguinness, claimed my manager of the update award last month, but hasn’t lived up to expectations this month as they lost 2 of their 3 games this month and have slipped to 6th in the League.

    Stoke and their manager Fréderico Canvey should be very please with their position so far in the League as they occupy a comfortable 11th place in the table, they have recently crashed to a 0-4 defeat to Chelsea, however. Shazad Ali’s Newcastle has not got the easiest job in the world. Newcastle fans always pile the pressure on every manager and it doesn’t always have a positive effect. Newcastle are down in 15th place and if Mr Ali doesn’t turn things around quickly he will thousands of angry Geordies on his back! Robert Boyle’s Blackburn, Martin Bojangles’ Hull and Wigan’s female manager, Brettney Joven, cover the bottom 3 positions in the Premiership.

    Back over in Italy, Serie B side Modena almost pulled off an unexpected win over dafuge’s Torino. Modena had only 7 first team players available (10 players were injured, and 3 were suspended!) but still gave their Serie A opposition a run for their money. There are no more Serie B teams left in the Italian Cup, as the other 2 left in the competition were knocked out by Jonte Rhodes’ Lazio and Mikey Twigge’s Palermo. Palermo’s form in the Italian Cup does not represent their clubs form in all competitions however. In the League Twigge has led his side to 5 defeats from their first 5 games. As well as that, Mr Twigge is not even capable of coaching his players to hit the back of the net, as they have scored 0 goals so far in the League. Chievo manager Mathias Brunckhorst is another manager to have a similar lack of success in the league as his side have also failed to get a point from their 5 games. At least they have scored a goal though.

    Occupying the middle of the table in Italy are Mikael Schøler, Bologna as they have 2 wins, 2 defeats and 1 draw from their first 5 games, picking up 7 points from a possible 15. Just below Bologna are James Salter’s Reggina, who are in the process of a board takeover, they also have 7 points, but because Bologna beat Reggina in the 2 clubs league encounter, Bologna claim 11th place and Reggina settle for 12th. In the top half is James Ridley’s Siena are fighting above their weight in 6th place. I’m sure Ridley will be very happy with 6th place at the end of the season though.

    In Spain, Valladolid, managed by Phil Ewlles are the surprise so far as they have climbed up to 6th place in the table so far. Saul Goode at Osasuna is also doing well in an impressive 7th position, which his players are more than happy with. In the bottom 3 are David Machine’s Athletic Club, Andy Moreton’s RealSporting and Sirus Lannock’s Málaga. Athletic Club will be hoping to perform much better over the coming months as they are expected to finish at least mid table, they are yet to win a game though. Real Sporting are also yet to win a game, but Málaga find themselves at the bottom of the table on goal difference with only 3 points.

    As well as action in the League and Domestic Cups, there has also been European action taking place, with the first legs of the 1st Round of the UEFA Cup taking place as well as the first fixtures of the Champions League Group Stages. In the Champions League the biggest win was for Atlético Madrid, managed by Cool Manager, who beat FC Porto 3-0, with all 3 goals coming in the first 20 minutes. Ben Cee’s Inter were shocked by Belgian outfit, Anderlecht, who won the game fairly comfortably 2-0! It was a long journey home for the disappointed Inter fans. Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid, Tom Smith’s Arsenal, Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona and Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United all managed to win their games, and top their respective Group tables. Female manager Lisa Jeffries, manager of Juventus and AS Roma manager Clark Aitken both drew their opening games.

    In the UEFA Cup 11 teams from this competition were involved in 1st Round ties. Zach Machios’s
    Portsmouth came out with the biggest win to take to the 2nd Leg as they thrashed Red Star Belgrade 5-0. There were also dominant wins for Tyler Burrows’ Udinese, Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia, Maz Armley’s Racing, Jack Browne’s Sevilla, Aston Villa and Everton who all won their 1st leg ties by 3 or more goals. Manchester City, Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria and A.C. Milan also won their 1st leg matches, but not by as great a margin.



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

    Ben Taylor
    , Fiorentina

    A fantastic month for Mr Taylor lots of goals scored and not many conceded as well as taking his club to top of the table. Villarreal manager Lars Tommersen was another contender as he is also unbeaten in the league and claimed a very impressive win against Liverpool. Another contender was Whoopy Dee as he seems to be working wonders at West Ham as they are right up the top of the Premiership.

    Top of the league in first.

    Not the best of months for me. Bryan McGuinness lost two of his matches in Ridleys' update, and Everton sit in the relegation area in Weeeman's. Need to hope the next month is a good one or things might start getting a bit dodgy.

    A 6 goal defeat I guess expectations should be low at Atalanta so I might get away with it for a while...hovering around relegation won't do any favours though.

    Reggina aren't doing too badly so far, a good cup win in one, 12th in one, and no mention in weeeman's, which means I'm not in relegation at the moment. KUTGW.

    No mention in any of the Month 3 updates, unless my eyes are broken (which is potentially the case!). Still, no news must be good news...right?

    weeeman27bob – Update 4
    Years 0, Months 4, Days 116


    Four months into the new season and we have our first changes for job status for our group of sixty managers. Whoopy Dee has had quite a fall from grace. He was Manager of the Update for the first update, but the success seems to have got to his head. His West Ham team sit bottom of the Premiership and his job security is described as Precarious.

    Also fighting for their jobs are Aston Villa’s Mark Cator and Bryan McGuinness, manager of Everton. Both these managers find their clubs sitting in the relegation zone, and so must find a way out to stay in the competition.

    The English league may contain some of the least stable jobs, but it also contains some of the most stable. At the start of the season, many would have tipped Brucie Bonus’s West Brom and Frédrico Canvey’s Stoke to be returning to the Championship. However, they now sit 9th and 11th respectively and above established clubs such as Shazad Ali’s Newcastle, who find themselves in 14th place. This means they are the only two managers to have a Very Secure job position.

    Only two teams remain unbeaten in Europe’s three dominant leagues. Chelsea may not have lost any games but should have picked up more points than they have, after four draws in ten games, including a goalless game with Scott Tysoe’s Sunderland.

    The other unbeaten team are Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid who sit atop La Liga with a magnificent 22 points from eight games. Sevilla sit one point behind having lost a game to Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid. Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona sit a further two points behind, but are far from out of the title race.

    Their fortunes aren’t much better in the Champions League as they have won only one of their three games to date, defeating the French team Bordeaux by three goals to one.

    Only three teams in the Champions League have a 100% record and all three come from England. Maurice Jobson’s Man United, Jeremy English’s Liverpool and Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea have won all of their games so far.

    The other member of the so called Big Four, Tom Smith’s Arsenal, have only secured two points in the Champions League so far, thanks to draws against Spartak Moscow and Sporting Clube de Portugal. They were thumped 0–2 at home by Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus who top the group.

    Also doing well in the Champions League are Villarreal, managed by Lars Tommersen, and Inter Milan, who each have two wins and a draw.

    The Milan team also sit second in Serie A, which should please Ben Cee. However, topping the table are Lord Weeman’s Napoli with twenty points from nine games. Level with Inter are their great rivals, Will de Mote’s AC Milan, Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria and Jonte Rhodes’s Lazio. In turn, Roma and Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina ,who have sixteen points apiece, closely follow them.

    Every single team has managed at least one win, but this won’t comfort James Salter, whose Reggina sit bottom of Serie A with only four points. dafuge’s Torino and Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo, who have five and six points respectively, join them in the relegation zone.

    The relegation zone in Spain is an equally desolate place. Jellybean Man’s Numancia have amassed only four points, courtesy of a 2–1 victory over Phill Ewles’s Valladolid and a draw against Wobill Luman’s Betis, who sit 11th and 15th. Joining them are Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo and Saul Goode’s Osasuna who each have six points. Sitting just above are David Machine’s Athletic with seven points to their name. With ten teams within ten points at the bottom, it looks like it will be a long hard fight to stay in La Liga.

    The group stages of the UEFA Cup have just got underway, and most teams have played one game. There have been no major shocks so far with AC Milan, Liam Ferguson’s Man City and Tyler Burrows’s Udinese all winning. Jack Browne’s Sevilla shouldn’t be too disappointed in losing to the Dutch team Feyenoord and are still in a position to go through from the group.

    Leo Dodge’s Tottenham may only have managed a draw against Stuttgart in their tie, but Dodge should be pleased with the start to the season as Spurs find themselves in fourth spot, with an impressive twenty goals scored in the league. Also positioned higher than anyone would have expected are Zach Machios’s Portsmouth and Robert Boyle’s Blackburn who are 6th and 7th.

    Other teams who are punching above their weight are Mikael Schøler’s Bologna, who sit an impressive ninth, and Maz Armley’s Racing, who sit five places above what their expected 10th place finish in La Liga. The same can be said of Sunderland who sit 10th instead of a predicted 15th, meaning Scott Tyose finds his position Secure.


    Manager of the Update

    This month’s manager of the update goes to…

    Andre da Conceiçao, Chelsea.

    Nobody has really stood out this month. Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid have performed well but not above expectations in the league, and haven’t been great in Europe. The same can be said of Jack Browne’s Sevilla. Lord Weeman’s Napoli have been flying in Serie A but were knocked out of the UEFA Cup by Maz Armley’s Racing. da Conceiçao’s Chelsea is the only team to remain unbeaten, and despite sitting only second in the English Premier League, they have won every game in the Champions League, making their manager the worthy winner of the coveted award.

    Writers Note: A previously read update again.

    Update 4 - Ridleys

    Years: 0, Months: 4, Days: 116

    Over 100 days gone in the competition now and all managers remain at their clubs. Things aren’t looking good for Robert Boyle though, as he became the first manager to become Very Insecure at his club, Blackburn. He has only won 4 games since pre-season in all competitions and has only picked up 8 League points. Another manager slightly under pressure is Jeremy English, manager of Liverpool. The English manager has had a few poor results (including defeats to Aston Villa and Tottenham) and his team are only in a mid table position at the moment. On the other hand things are looking good for both Tim Aubel, manager of Fulham, and Arnold J. Rimmer at Bolton. Both managers are now Very Secure at their clubs and don’t look like they are going anywhere in the near future.

    Replacing Liverpool in the Top 4 (for now anyway) are Bryan McGuinness’s Everton who have found their form again this month, not losing a single game and pushing back up to 3rd place. Chelsea, managed Andre da Conceiçao, remain the only team in the Premiership to be unbeaten, and they top the table by 2 points and with a game in hand. Ben Cee’s Inter, over in Italy, are also still unbeaten and also lead the way in Serie A. There are 4 other unique teams though, for the opposite reason however. Andy Morton’s Real Sporting, Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo, Martin Bojangles at Hull and Brettney Joven’s Wigan are winless and are bottom of their respective leagues (except for Hull who are 1 point above Wigan). Chievo are actually yet to get a point from their 9 league games so far.

    Arsenal manager, Tom Smith, has had a very good month and has moved in to 2nd place in the league. Their month started off with an impressive 2-0 win against Premiership holders Manchester United, managed by Maurice Jobson. Manchester United are in 4th position. Big spenders, Liam Ferguson’s ManchesterCity remain in 12th position, and it won’t be long before their free-spending chairman start’s to get on Mr Ferguson’s back if they don’t manager to move upwards.

    2nd place in Serie A is becoming a tough battle already, with 3 teams all on 20 points. Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan lead the 3 with a goal difference of +16 (the highest in Serie A), Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina are in 3rd place with a goal difference of +14 and female manager, Lisa Jeffries, at Juventus is in 4th place with a goal difference of +7. There lack of goals seems to be their downfall. Tyler Burrows’s mid-table side, Udinese, are certainly not finding it as difficult to score goals though. They have 17 goals from 9 games, but have conceded 16 goals which is why they are not higher than 9th in the table. Down in the relegation zone are Mikey Twigge’s Palermo, who were aiming for a European Place next season. Neppo Monster’s Cagliari and unsurprisingly Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo are the other 2 teams in the relegation zone at this early stage.

    La Liga is also becoming a frantic battle at the top of the table, with just 2 points separating the top 5 teams. Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona and Jack Browne’s Sevilla lead the way with 18 points, however Barcelona occupy the top spot on goal difference. Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid and Wobill Luman’s Real Betis are 1 point behind the front 2, with 17 points and Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid are in 5th place, 1 point behind Real Madrid and Real Betis. Down at the bottom it is also very tight. Apart from Andy Morton’s Sporting, who are already 4 points adrift in last place, only 2 points separate the 9 teams above them, including 5 teams who have all won 2 drawn 2 and lost 4 games. One of those teams is Mallorca, managed by Tom Hamilton. Mallorca were hoping to get a place in Europe next season but they already find themselves 5 points behind 8th place. Going well in La Liga are Valladolid, managed by Phil Ewles, are expected to be around the relegation zone come the end of the season, but find themselves in 9th place and 5 points away from the relegation zone.

    This month also saw a lot more Domestic Cup games in Spain, with all the La Liga teams being entered in to the Spanish Cup. All of the teams got through to the 5th Round except 2 teams, Jellybean Man’s Numancia and Cristobal Blanco’s Recreativo both got knocked out by teams from the division below.


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

    Bryan McGuinness, Everton


    After a poor month last month Bryan McGuinness has taken his side back up to 3rd place in the Premier Division after an unbeaten month. Ben Taylor has also had a good month at Fiorentina, and is in joint 2nd place in Serie A. Phil Ewles has also been impressive so far as his side Valladolid have impressed so far and are in 9th place in La Liga.

    Writer's Notes: You've read this before.

    Update 4 – canvey!!
    Years: 0, Months: 0, Days: 116

    Chairmen across England have begun to make decisions on the strength of their managers’ positions this month, while Zach Machios’s Portsmouth found themselves knocked out of the UEFA Cup, the first of our sides to do so. After a 0-1 defeat in Dortmund last month, FA Cup holders Pompey found themselves only able to draw 1-1 at Fratton Park and this puts the Scotsman in the undesirable Very Insecure position. The Premier League season has been in much the same vein for the South Coast team, and although they escaped the month eventually with 2 points in the form of two 2-2 draws, losses to Bolton and Leo Dodge’s Tottenham see them stuck to the bottom of the Premier League table, and Machios has only two competitions to play for.

    Their Italian counterparts are James Salter’s Reggina. Despite featuring in the Manager of the Update Awards early on, Salter’s team find themselves bottom of Serie A, yet unlike Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo, they have won one game. Yet this month was winless for amaranto, although there were a number of difficult games in the mix. Their best chance for three points was away to Siena, yet James Ridley’s team triumphed two goals to nil. However, still in the cup after last month’s defeat of Lazio, things aren’t all bad for Salter, who still finds himself in a Stable position.

    Over to Spain now, where the First Leg of the Spanish Cup’s Fourth Round has been played, with the biggest result a 4-0 away win for Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid, over Segunda División B Écija Balompié. Zaragosa earned the advantage over Jellybean Man’s Numancia after an exciting match finished 3-2 in favour of the Segunda División team. However, with the tie next heading back to Nuevo Los Pajaritos, there is hope for Man, who was on the correct side of the same result in La Liga, over Wobill Luman’s Betis, yet matched Écija’s result, also losing 0-4 to Atlético. Another win this month keeps them steadily in mid-table, lying 13th.

    Unfortunately for Valencia, they have been knocked off the top of La Liga by Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid. Los Merengues won all three league games this month: the closest they came to an upset was a narrow 3-2 victory away over David Machine’s Athletic, who lie 17th and just above the relegation zone. They also had a comfortable result in Europe as Fenerbahçe came to visit in the Champions League, leaving after a 2-0 home win. Volman’s side had three 3-0 wins this month, two at home in the league and a third in the Spanish Cup Fourth Round First Leg, where they began the rout of Segunda División B islanders Fuerteventura.

    In other Champions League news for Spanish teams, Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal narrowly lost out 2-3 at home to Tom Smith’s Arsenal, yet beat Steve McLaren’s FC Twente 2-1 and lie 3rd, and Atlético Madrid lost 0-4 to Jeremy English’s Liverpool and sit bottom of their group. Despite this, things aren’t looking too rosy for English, as he sits in fear on the edge of his seat. A board takeover was completed, bringing in a Preston-born chairman in replacement of the Yanks, yet Dean Eaton may have his own plans for the management of Liverpool, and English’s job position is Very Insecure. He had an unbeaten month this month, sneaking him back into the top half, yet that included only one league win, over Martin Bojangles’s Hull, with two of the league’s most comfortable managers earning great draws against the Reds. Both of these managers are Very Secure, and Fréderico Canvey held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at the Britannia yet didn’t win this month, yet Shazad Ali’s Newcastle earned a 0-0 at Anfield, winning a further two and losing one this month also.

    Clark Aitken’s Roma continue their run at the top of Serie A and their winning streak. Their wins were certainly comfortable, the Canadian guiding them to two 3-0 wins at home and two 3-1 wins away. Perhaps the most notable of the month was the home win over Lord Weeman’s Napoli, who find themselves in 11th place after beating bermybhoy’s Atalanta, yet losing to Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan 1-2, and by the same score in the UEFA Cup group stage to CSKA Moscow. Roma also continued their sky-high Champions League performance, travelling to Scotland and travelling back with a 1-0 win over Rangers. Roma, as one of two teams who have yet to lose in Serie A, are joined by Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus, whose two blips this month were a 0-0 draw at home to Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria and a 0-1 loss in the Champions League to Bayern Munich.

    Every side has now won in La Liga, yet Getafe, managed by Joe Seddon, still remain bottom of the league with just 3 points. They lost 1-4 to Phill Ewles’s Valladolid yet beat Espanyol 2-1, the latter managed by Joe Gleeson. Gleeson’s side lie in 11th place but the match against Getafe was the only one they failed to win this month, their highlight being a 3-0 conquest of David Machine’s Athletic. Osasuna, managed by Welshman Saul Goode, lie just above Getafe, yet they lost all three league games this month, but came close against Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona, only losing 1-2 at home. Barcelona are 4th in La Liga yet have had an indifferent Champions League. While they defeated Werder Bremen 3-1, a 1-2 loss in Kiev sees them last in their group.

    In other European news, five of our teams won their first UEFA Cup Group stage matches, five lost and one draw, with Jack Browne’s Sevilla yet to play. With only Portsmouth going out in the First Round, all competing teams won their ties there, with a number of matches of interest, perhaps the most exciting being Maz Armley’s Racing’s 4-0 win over AaB to send them through 5-1 on aggregate. Yet they lost their next fixture, visiting Ajax where they found themselves 0-2 down before rescuing a consolation in the final moments of the first half. French sides generally did quite well in the first match of the Group Stage, but their only loss was a dismantling of Stade Rennais by Leo Dodge’s Tottenham, 4-0. Udinese, managed by Tyler Burrows, lost 1-4 to HSV, while there was a shock victory for Stuttgart when they visited the City of Manchester Stadium.

    Liam Ferguson’s side, however, lie third in the Premier League, and were undefeated in this month’s domestic calendar, with a 1-1 draw at the Emirates being one highlight, the 4-2 away win over Whoopy Dee’s West Ham being another. The Hammers are 18th in the league, just inside the drop zone, where they are joined by Tim Aubel’s Fulham and, of course, Portsmouth. Everton join Manchester City as the other non-Big Four team in the top four, with the highlight for Bryan McGuinness’s team being a 3-1 demolition job when Maurice Jobson’s Red Devils visited Goodison Park. Despite this, United are still top, with two 3-0 wins over both “West” teams, yet cracks are appearing, the Everton result and subsequent 0-2 loss to Celtic in the Champions League being prominent ones.

    Other notable Champions League results this month were Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea beating Romanians CFR Cluj 3-0, and Fiorentina, managed by Ben Taylor, defeating Porto 2-0. PSV Eindhoven also beat Panathanaikos of Greece 4-0.

    Joining Fréderico Canvey and Shazad Ali on the list of Very Secure managers are Brucie Bonus and Scott Tysoe. Despite the Kyrgyzstani losing two games this month, a 3-1 victory keeps Brucie Bonus’s West Ham board happy, while Scott Tysoe keeps his Sunderland employers happy with a 2-0 victory over Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough this month, despite two losses. Sunderland, who propelled themselves into the top four very early on, have lost a bit of their edge and slipped into 8th, which is still a desirable position. Two other managers are with Jeremy English and Zach Machios on the Very Insecure list, but these are both English managers, so those leading Spanish and Italian teams might have to wait a little longer to see if those in charge of the purse strings are happy or not.

    Manager of the Update
    We have our first repeat winner, and that is;

    Clark Aitken, Roma

    Due to the continuation of his winning streak. Some other major sides offered potential early in the month, such as Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United, yet two losses for him as well as losses for other sides like United meant that the perfectionist Aitken stood the best chance. While Everton’s Bryan McGuinness might have had a claim, Roma have sauntered off with the league so far, and although there are a number of managers with Very Secure job descriptions, they are not without losses and I might expect some of those votes of confidence to be downgraded quite soon.

    In a bit of trouble in Weeeman's update, very insecure is not a position McGuinness wants to be in. Everton should be doing a lot better than the relegation area.
    The opposite case in Ridleys' update, third is a good sign at this point in the season. Manager of the month too shows how strong he is at the moment.
    Top 4 in Canvey's as well, and beating Manyoo is always a good claim to have.

    So two of the three McGuinness' are doing very well at the moment, the other one needs to step up though to not let his namesakes down.

    Could be doing a little better in Ridleys game though, sitting at 5th in the La liga, although admittedly just a point behind Betis.

    Never seems to be good new printed about Atalanta, but stable all round. That'll do nicely.

    Well, can't expect a manager to be very secure in Milan. 3 stable situations mean very secure.

    Well gotta be happy with Lazio sniffing at upper mid table in all the updates, tied for 3rd (or 2nd?) in Weemans in Serie A, hopefully we can keep it up and keep the job on track, happy with where we are stable will win the race.

    Yes it is. However, Ridleys is going on holiday today for at least two weeks (he doesn't know his exact date of return), so no updates for a little while.

    Writer's Notes - This update is coming today, whilst the other two will appear on Sunday. That's because I'm going away tomorrow.


    Update 5 – weeman27bob
    Years: 0, Months: 5, Days:146


    It may be the festive time nearing Christmas, but Brian McGuinness isn’t full of joy. His Everton sit rock bottom of the Premiership with only ten points from fifteen games. Joining them in the relegation zone are Martin Bojangles‘s Hull and Ricky Nakano‘s Middlesbrough who have both scored a disappointing twelve points. McGuinness finds his job status Precarious, and Bojangles doesn’t fare much better with his status set as Very Insecure.

    Everton may be doing poorly in the league, but still look like they will make the next round of the UEFA Cup as they sit in second place of their group . Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria top the group with two wins out of three after defeating Maz Armley’s Racing 1-0. All three teams though sit in the top three of the group meaning they are favourites to qualify.

    In fact every team controlled by one of the managers are in positions to qualify for the next round. Tyler Burrows’s Udinese, Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo and Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia all have a win and a draw. Valencia secured their win with a thumping 4-0 victory over Austria Wien. Liam Ferguson’s Man City won a tight game against the French side Paris Saint-Germain but lost against the Dutch team Heerenveen 0-2 in a game they really should have won.

    Zach Machios should be very pleased with Portsmouth’s performances so far. His team sit top of their UEFA Cup group, which also contains Will de Mote’s AC Milan, and sit fourth in the Premiership. His exploits have seen him gain a job status of Very Secure.

    Faring even better though are Leo Dodge’s Tottenham. A victory by four goals over Partizan Belgrade from Serbia sees them in a good position in the UEFA Cup. However in the league they sit an impressive third after winning all but one of their games this month, including a 2-0 defeat of Shazad Ali’s Newcastle. Tottenham are also in the quarter finals of the League Cup, after defeating Sheffield United in a thumping 5-0 victory.

    Also in the quarter finals of the League Cup are West Brom, managed by Brucie Bonus. Not only that, but they find themselves slap bang in the middle of the league table. An impressive month has seen them defeat Chelsea by two goals to one, draw 1-1 with Jeremy English’s Liverpool, and lose to Man United in a scorching five goal game.

    All three of those teams are playing in the Champions League, and all three of them have qualified for the next round, each winning four and losing one of their games so far. Maurice Jobson’s Man United have been the most impressive, scoring 12 goals.

    Similar to in the UEFA Cup, nearly all of the managed teams have, or are in the position to qualify. The only team that aren’t are Tom Smith’s Arsenal who sit bottom of their group. His fortunes are better in the Premiership though as the Gunners sit top of the table, but with games to come against Chelsea, Liverpool, and Man United next month, things could be set to change.

    The best team in the Champions League so far are Ben Cee’s Inter, who are still unbeaten with four wins and a draw. Not only that but they are also leading Serie A by four points after winning every game this month, including a 2-0 vicotry over dafuge’s Torino who are struggling in Serie A finding themselves bottom. dafuge finds his job Very Insecure but is not the only one under pressure in the Italian league.

    James Ridley’s Siena are just above the relegation zone, sitting in 16th, but he finds his job under threat after they only secured three points this month. Atalanta, managed by bermybhoy, sit just one place above Siena, and with the team predicted to do much better, he too finds his job status as Very Insecure. It isn’t just the smaller teams though. Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus find themselves a disappointing seventh after poor results this month, including a 0-1 loss to Jonte Rhodes’s tenth places Lazio and a goalless draw against Cardio Vascular’s Genoa, who sit 13th.

    Fiorentina should be happier though as their manager, Ben Taylor, has led them to second in the league after a good month in which they defeated Clark Aitken’s Roma by three goals to two away. The side from the Italian capital sit lower than expected in 7th, but there is still time to turn things around.

    Much praise should go to Theo Stigarakis’s Catania. His team have been predicted to finish dead last, but are in fact ninth after some good wins this month.


    In La Liga, Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid sit top by a solitary point with Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona sitting second. Barcelona have had a good month, winning all but one game and scoring nine goals. Madrid also lost one game, a 0-1 defeat to third placed Sevilla, which was a good result in a good month for Jack Browne.

    The other end of the table sees managers fighting for their jobs. Things are tight at the bottom of La Liga with Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo sitting 15th but only two points above the relegation zone. For a team predicted 7th, this is poor to say the least. Luckily, though, they squeezed through the Spanish Cup, something that cannot be said of Neilio’s Almería who were not only knocked out by Wobill Luman’s Real Betis, but are in the relegation zone too, despite winning two games this month. David Machine’s Athletic find themselves above that drop zone, thanks to their superior goal difference. This means that all three of these managers find themselves in Very Insecure positions.

    Much fun has been poked at Phill Ewles as his Valladolid after they crashed out of the Spanish Cup to lower opposition, something every other manager avoided.

    There have been many good performances in Spain, but the standout one comes from Sirus Lannock’s Málaga who find themselves 11th which is much higher than expected.

    Manager of the Update

    A few good candidates this week, but it goes too…

    Leo Dodge, Tottenham.

    Theo Stigarakis and Sirus Lannock have both done very well, guiding their teams to positions way above expectations, but haven’t been truly outstanding. Zach Machios has also had a good month seeing Portsmouth into fourth place in the Premiership and having good results in Europe. However Dodge just shades him as he sits third in the Premiership above teams such as Liverpool and Man United, and is still unbeaten in the UEFA Cup.

    Good news - News on McGuinness is in the first line of the update.
    Bad news - Everton are bottom of the Prem, and the job status is precarious.

    *crosses fingers*. Please don't be first fired.

    I'm back.

    Not great news regarding the fact that my Arsenal team sit bottom of their Champions League group, but being top of the Premiership is some conselation.

    Update 5 – canvey!!
    Years: 0, Months: 5, Days: 146

    There have been a number of sackings this month. Sadly, they were all in the second tiers of the relevant countries. However, Maz Armley and David Machine were two of many managers edging their way towards that, while Liverpool boss Jeremy English has fought his way away with an unbeaten month including a 2-0 away victory at Rangers and a 1-0 victory in the League Cup, usurping their rivals in a visit to Goodison Park. Armley’s Racing produced two spectacular victories this month, including a 5-0 win over Czechs Slovan Liberec in the UEFA Cup. However, a couple of losses in his league campaign leaves the Englishman stuck in 15th position.

    David Machine’s Athletic, meanwhile won only one league game this month, although they followed up a 1-1 draw at home to Espanyol with a 2-0 cup victory at home to Espanyol. However, this was little saving grace and the Australian finds himself out of that tournament on a 2-3 aggregate.

    All of the English Big Four had troubles this month, although it was arguably Manchester United who had the least amount of them. Maurice Jobson guided his Red Devils team to a 3-0 victory over Celtic in the Champions League, a 4-0 victory over Watford in the League Cup and a 5-0 victory over lowly Wigan in the league. However, the Rwandan was unable to successfully leave the Emirates, where Tom Smith’s Arsenal won 2-1 with an Edwin van der Sar dismissal. A saving grace for Jobson may be that in tomorrow’s League Cup Quarter Final, they are at home to the London club. Smith, however, was not without his own problems. He promptly dismissed Steve McClaren’s FC Twente when they visited in the Champions League, but were pegged back 2-2 by a resilient Everton, and a trip to Craven Cottage didn’t go to plan, where they were handed a 0-2 defeat.

    Yet not even Tim Aubel, manager of Fulham, had a perfect month, as Portsmouth, with their flagging manager Zach Machios, visited London, and triumphed with a 3-1 victory, scoring in the 22nd, 26th and 28th minute. Fulham were also knocked out of the League Cup on penalties after a 2-2 draw at Molineux. However, the victory over Arsenal as well as wins over West Ham and Blackburn put Aubel in a Secure position. And despite his win over Fulham, Machios is still Very Insecure with his club sitting in 18th place. They were on the other side of that Fulham scoreline against Blackburn while Pompey lost 1-2 to Manchester United and Brucie Bonus’s West Brom.

    Clark Aitken’s Roma were finally trumped this month, leaving Juventus, and their female manager Lisa Jeffries, the only side without a loss in Serie A. In fact, it was a trip to the Old Lady’s (that’s not Jeffries I’m talking about) ground that terminated the sixteen-game winning streak. Yet Roma continue their success, remaining first, and Canadian Aitken is masterminding 3-0 wins in the Champions League, over Rangers and over Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid. Juventus, meanwhile, sitting five points behind, fell to a strong display in Lyon, and were held to a draw by dafuge’s Torino. Despite this, dafuge’s side lie 17th in Serie A, as the Juventus game was the only one they didn’t lose this month.

    In the Spanish Cup this month, Barcelona, managed by Haowan Madridstas, won 7-0 over opponents Real Unión to progress on a 9-0 aggregate. They also beat Jellybean Man’s Numancia 4-0 while losing 0-1 to Real Madrid. However, Man is said to be Very Secure after preserving his team in the top half of the table, bringing some good results such as a 4-1 triumph over Saul Goode’s Osasuna, yet losing in the Cup to Second Division Zaragoza. Despite being 19th in the League, Goode is said to be Stable, but he won only one game this month, over Cristobal Blanco’s Recreativo, although he squeaked through the cup on penalties. Blanco’s side are in 16th, and the Peruvian shipped eight goals in three games yet has progressed in the cup where he will face bottom-placed Getafe, managed by Englishman Joe Seddon.

    There were five relevant casualties in the English League Cup Fourth Round, and three Championship sides have made it to the Quarter Final, with one guaranteed to reach the Final Four. Whoopy Dee’s West Ham lost 1-3 to Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City, perhaps a contributing factor in the second-nationality New Zealander’s Very Insecure position, accompanied with his occupation of 19th place in the Premier League. Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea outclassed Bolton in a 5-1 victory, which leads to Arnold J. Rimmer’s description as ‘Insecure’. Wanderers struggled this month, losing also 1-3 to bottom-placed Wigan, yet they pulled back some form at the end of the month to beat Manchester City 2-1. Chelsea, meanwhile, lie in 8th place after defeats to Tottenham and Newcastle, although the Portuguese manager’s side beat both PSV and CJR Cluj 2-1 in the Champions League.

    James Salter’s Reggina saw an unbeaten month this November in Serie A, a welcome turnabout that puts them into 15th spot. While their results were far from sensational, in amongst them were 2-1 victories over Napoli, Torino and Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria, who sit in 8th despite three loses this month: one to Reggina, of course, but also one to Cardio Vascular’s Genoa and to Ben Cee’s Inter. Inter lie in 3rd place, but not even they were free from imperfections. Despite a 4-0 Champions League triumph over Galatasaray, they lost in the same competition to Portugal’s Sporting CP, and also in a league trip to Theo Stigarakis’s Catania. Genoa lie in 7th but have had an indifferent month, and face a trip to Juventus in the Italian Cup for their very next match.

    Back to sunny Spain now and Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia top the form charts without a loss this month. This includes a 4-0 home victory over Murcia in the Spanish Cup and a trip to Austria where a 3-0 win was upsetting for Salzburg. A 4-0 win over Recreativo was another highlight. Real Madrid, managed by Lucas Volman, were also unbeaten, including a 2-0 demolition of their opponents in Donetsk, a 5-0 Cup win over Fuerteventura, resulting in an 8-0 aggregate, and a 3-0 win over Maz Armley’s Racing. Two Spanish teams found themselves unable to win, but Sirus Lannock’s Málaga accumulated four draws whereas Getafe saw themselves to only two.

    In terms of other sides without wins, in England there weren’t any, but Leo Dodge’s Tottenham came close to not losing, yet fell 0-2 in a difficult game at Anfield. Some highlights for the Englishman this month include wins over Chelsea and a 4-1 conquest of Manchester City, yet they were held 1-1 by sc Heerenveen in the UEFA Cup. Regardless, the 46-year-old came third in the Manager of the Month award and is coming third in the league too. Like Tottenham, Mark Cator’s Aston Villa only lost the one game this month, yet theirs was to Hull and they also found difficulty in a trip to the home ground of Jack Browne, leaving disappointed after Sevilla won 2-0. Cator is currently Very Insecure.

    In the UEFA Cup, Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo are the first relevant side to qualify for the next round, completing their qualification just two games in after a 2-1 win over Austria Wien this month. Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan have also won both European games after winning 3-1 over Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium, and Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia also have six points, while Udinese, under the reins of Tyler Burrows, sit just inside the qualification spots by virtue of their goal difference.

    In the Champions League, however, all English sides have qualified for the knockout round with one game to play, but Villarreal, managed by Lars Tommersen, are fighting it out with Bordeaux for their qualification, while Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina are trying to overcome Celtic. Juventus need to overtake Spartak Moscow while only one team is definitely out, with Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid in contention with Rangers for third place and a UEFA Cup spot.

    Next month brings a number of things for our managers. There’s always the promise of more league action, while European group stages reach their conclusion. For those in Italy there is the First Round of the Cup whereas there is, of course, Christmas, Natale or Navidad. However, will the gifts of any of the managers be a P45? We’ll see.

    Manager of the Update
    There were a number of strong candidates for Manager of the Update this month, not least because of the defeats handed to the Big Four. However the winner is;

    Leo Dodge, Tottenham

    By virtue of the fact that he’s not won it yet. Lawrence Lazewski at Valencia came close, and would have won it if not for a 2-2 draw against Numancia. However, I felt it unfair to punish Leo Dodge for losing a difficult game to Liverpool, and also looked at their performances in relation to their league expectations, with Lazewski four places above the prediction and Dodge six. Other claimants were Lisa Jeffries at Juventus who had an unbeaten league month yet lost in Lyon, and Lucas Volman at Real Madrid, with Jeremy English also a top contender.

    Update 5 - Ridleys
    Years: 0, Months: 5, Days: 146

    Things are heating up in the competition this month, with some managers exceeding expectations like Bolton’s Arnold J. Rimmer for example, who is now regarded as Very Secure as he has guided his club in to a European position for the time being in 7th place. There are also managers performing below par, especially Liverpool boss Jeremy English who has now gone 9 games in all competitions without a win, and fans of the club were embarrassed by Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United after a 6-1 win for the Red Devils. Things are also going badly for Joe Gleeson at Espanyol, who was expecting a mid-table position at the very least at the beginning of the season. His side sit at the bottom of La Liga and remain the only team to not reach double figures in points so far. Unsurprisingly both Jeremy English and Joe Gleeson are Precarious at their respective clubs.

    In Italy things aren’t going quite to plan for Chievo and their Brazilian manager Mathias Brunckhorst. Despite having won only one of their 14 games so far and picking up only four points I was surprised to see that that the Chievo boss is still labelled as Stable by his team. The same applies for Stoke manager Fréderico Canvey who is also regarded as Stable by his club despite being the only team in the Premiership to still be in single figures and are five points adrift at the bottom of the league. On the other hand things are going very well for Arnold J. Rimmer of Bolton who has led his team to a very respectable 7th position for the time being.

    Last month's Manager of the Update winner (and two time winner overall) Bryan McGuinness, manager of Everton, has had another solid month and still sit in a Champions League position. Tottenham and their manager Leo Dodge join Everton in a Champions League position. Everton are in 3rd place and Tottenham are in 2nd, joint on points with Andre da Conceiçao at Chelsea. Both teams also top their groups in the UEFA Cup. Osasuna’s Saul Goode is surprising everyone in La Liga as his team are exceeding all expectations and find themselves in the top half of the table. If they keep their form going they may sneak a European place for next season! Mr Goode is Very Secure at his club.

    Catania are the surprise team in this years Serie A. Their manager Theo Stigarakis has surprised everybody so far by taking his team in to 8th position with only one defeat in their last seven league games, including wins against Lord Weeman’s Napoli, Mikey Twigge’s Palermo and Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria who are all performing below par and find themselves below Catania in the league. Ben Cee’s Inter are the only team in the competition still unbeaten.Over in Spain the top two teams are Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid and Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona who are already six points clear of 3rd place Atlético Madrid, managed by Cool Manager. Barcelona are top of the table on 33 points with Real Madrid on 32 points, followed by Atlético Madrid on 26 points and Jack Browne’s Sevilla on 25 points.

    There have been no real surprises in the Champions League, with all but one of the English, Italian and Spanish teams on track for qualification to the knockout stages. Roma’s Clark Aitken has drawn all five of his Champions League matches so far and are in 3rd in their group, behind Zenit. Real Madrid have already qualified from that group. Villarreal, managed by Lars Tommersen, have not had the best of form in the league recently, but their form has been magnificent in Europe, playing five games in their group and winning all five, including two wins against Liverpool. Female manager Lisa Jeffries has also been celebrating good form in the Champions League, remaining unbeaten with her club Juventus and qualifying along with Tom Smith’s Arsenal.

    In the UEFA Cup it has been very smooth for the five English teams in the competition, as four of them top their respective groups. One of these teams is Zach Machios’s Portsmouth who won their group comfortably. Mark Cator’s Aston Villa also won their group with relative ease. Maz Armley is struggling in Europe and is not doing well in the league either. 19th in the league and on the brink of being knocked out of Europe will not go down well with the Racing supporters.

    Shazad Ali’s Newcastle pulled off a shock 2-0 win against Liverpool’s under-pressure manager Jeremy English in the League Cup. There were also wins for Aston Villa who beat Manchester United, Bolton who beat Tottenham on penalties and Arsenal who beat Liam Ferguson’s ManchesterCity 1-0. Portsmouth overcame their Championship opponents Burnley after extra time, Everton who thrashed Brucie Bonus’s West Brom 4-1 and Robert Boyle’s Blackburn were lucky to come out with a 1-0 win against Sheffield United. The draw for the FA Cup 3rd Round has also been drawn with three all-premiership clashes. Martin Bojangles’s Hull play away at Arsenal, Aston Villa are at home to Middlesbrough managed by Ricky Nakano and West Brom will be playing Tottenham at home.

    In Spain, Jellybean Man’s Numancia were the only La Liga team not to progress through to the next round of the Spanish Cup. They were defeated 1-0 on aggregate by Las Palmas. Las Palmas have been drawn against Joe Seddon’s Getafe for the next round.

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

    Theo Stigarakis, Catania

    An Impressive month for Theo Stigarakis, with wins against Napoli and Palermo along the way. It’s also been another good month for Ben Cee at Inter who tops Serie A after another unbeaten month. Zach Machios was also a contender after qualifying with ease from the UEFA Cup Group Stages.

    Very insecure in 2 of them.... But where am I in weeeman's table? By the sounds of it I'm very insecure anyway so I don't think I'll be around much longer

    It seems on closer inspection that you have out Chimpos twice and left me out
