TRALEE DYNAMOS - IRELAND - SEASON 2011
My first season in charge was a fairly interesting one. Some good pre-season form had me in high confidence that we'd be able to perform well in our first season and initially we didn't dissapoint.
An early run of good form saw us sitting top of the table after about 5 games before some more mediocre performances saw us slip back into mid-table which is where our trouble began. Plummeting morale saw us set the record for the longest run without a win which stretched to about 7 or 8 games from memory and we suddenly found ourselves sitting in 10th out of 12 teams.
The inspired signing of Michale Keane, who was released by Manchester United's youth team, saw us start to revive our performances. Funnily enough morale started working in our favour as we went on to set the record for the longest undefeated streak for the league. On the back of this remarkable turnaround we managed to climb up to 5th before settling for an eventual 6th place finish.
All in all not a bad season with Keane and McMahon being the standouts. Despite being a right back Keane managed to lift our form and at only 19 years old he looks like the star of the team that hopefully we can hold onto. I expected Sheppard to be my main striker but McMahon constantly proved himself to be more up to the task, scoring goals when we needed them most.
At the moment i'm struggling to find enough quality in the transfer market so around 5th or 6th may be my only realistic aim for next season.
