    Once again it will be a journeyman career, I will be starting off as a manager with Sunday League experience to make sure I have to work my way up the ranks.I will remove some leagues if it does become too much to handle.

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Premier Division - 2011/12 - Pre-Season


    Budgets
    Transfer Budget - £0 (£0 Remaining)
    Wage Budget - £5,500 p/w (Currently spending £3,115 p/w)

    Pre-Season Transfers Part 1 - Pre-Season Transfers Part 2 - Had no choice but to sign a lot of players as when I arrived,we had 1 player who was a goalkeeper.I signed 25 players which has now given us a squad of 26 with some more to come in the net transfer window which should give us a healthy balance of youth,peak and experience which will be necessary if we are to survive the new season.

    Expectations
    Premier Division - Stay Clear of Relegation - My expectation is to avoid relegation even if it means 9th!
    Indonesian Cup - Be competitive - Not to get embarrassed

    Pre-Season Fixtures


    Key Players
    Anis Syah - GK - New Keeper signed as a free who walks into the team as the number one keeper.I am hoping his experience will help us at this level as he is rated at 3* which is a good player at this level.From what I have seen during the late part of pre-season,he will be able to do a very decent job for us.

    Dedi Sutrisno - DL/DC - A versatile defender who will start as a left back with us unless their is an injury crisis.Was one of the first to join the club as he signed at the end of July,a solid defender in both positions which will help in the future as I am sure there will be injuries and suspensions coming my way!

    Alex Cabrera - AMC/MC - He is quite a coup for us and a older head so will be looking for him to provide valuable experience.He will be played in his favoured AMC role but he is also able to play at MC so he can drop back if need be.Was recommended by my assistant manager when I took over so least I know he can spot a decent talent.

    Sebastian Balbi - ST - My main striker has I am playing with a formation of one up front in a 4-2-3-1!I am hoping for round 10 goals off him this season as I expect my midfield to give him a lot of support.He is rated at 4* but his backup is also 4* so the lone striker position is actually quite strong with regard to talent.

    Pre-Season Overview
    Pre-Season was a very tough battle,not only did I we only have one player but finding the right tactics was annoying as well.But after a long slog through July,August and September,we are now settled on tactics as well as having a team which actually resembles a football team.I think we just edged pre-season with 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses even if I didn't beat my own u21 side!

    With regards to expectations,I didn't realise they had just been promoted in real life which probably explains why other Indonesian Premiership sides laughed my interest off whereas the Division 1 sides couldn't pay the compensation to release me from my contract.With this,I am expecting a very hard battle this season so I will be looking for 9th place,if pre-season was anything to go by then I am not going to hold my breath,all I can say is that this is going to be a bumpy ride!

    It is weird to see an improvement that quickly but as I promised to myself.....I won't be using a 4-2-4 to bail me out this time

    My tactic this time will be along the lines of this:


    Only played 1 game so far which we won 4-1,we were outshot 12-8 but were equal with 4 apiece when it came to being on target!

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Premier Division - 2011/12 - Mid-Season



    Competitions
    Indonesian Premier Division




    Indonesian Cup
    Knocked out in first round with a 5-4 aggregate defeat courtesy of a 94th minute penalty in the 2nd leg against PSIM who play in group A of the Premier Division.

    Mid-Season Overview
    Other then the cup defeat which earned me a touchline ban,we have done very well and are challenging for the 2nd spot which will see us go into the next phase.Although if you take first out then there is not much difference in the league,as of late we have been fairly inconsistent which needs to be sorted after our brilliant run at the start of the season.My only problems are that my contract runs out in 2012 and the fans constantly whining when we don't win.Hopefully I will get a new contract at the end of the season seeing as we are exceeding the media's expectations of 12th place!

    If you don't make it this time, you'll be a lot better when everyone gels, having literally had to buy a squad.

    I hope so,in the summer transfer window,I can improve the weakest areas which is midfield and right back then I should have a very solid squad to challenge in the future.

    I won't be signing anyone else as it may disrupt the team too much for my liking.

    Will be following this B.W.G., so good luck in Indonesia

    Not a bad start too, still in contention for promotion at the half way stage.

    Not bad B.W.G you're doing well in Indonesia. And who knows maybe at the end you can get promoted.

    IIRC if things haven't changed from FM11 you have to either finish top 2 in each group or have the top two points if you didn't finish top 2. Second Phase there's 2 groups of 4 and you have to finish top 2 to get promoted to the Super League.

    AK22 - Thanks,all I can say is so far so good

    rancer890 - I hope so.All I know is that the best two teams qualify for the next phase so I am guessing it's top 2 for certain as that's what the rules said but if top 2 points is included then I should be ok although my group seems to be low points total compared to the rest.

    Also to note,I saw a manager sacked due to poor finances which does have me worried seeing as my contract is up and they refused to open up contract talks with me

    Liking the ambition shown in the form of your formation. I'll be honest, I wouldn't have the stones to try a setup like that unless I had good players. Nice to the see it's paying off with a good start.

    It seems to be paying off so maybe my ambition is being rewarded although now I said that,I am half expecting a losing streak

    That's basically the same formation I used for the lower divisions of Portugal in FM11. I found that as long as your 2 central mids are capable enough the rest of the team can build from there fairly easily.

    Biscotti - My 2 centre mids are not too bad but my AMC is class but midfield is an area which I need to work on in the summer window.If I can improve that then we should be challenging.

    deltablue - Unfortunately,with two games we sit in 3rd but our top two qualification is sorted.So if what rancer says is true then I will keep at it as for the top 2 points for those who finish third go onto next phase.Out of the three groups,points for third place are as follows.....33,35 and 34.....we are in group C so we are on 34.One advantage is that our last two games are at home so I'm hoping we an pull it off!

    Good news is the top 2 teams after the 6 top 2 places also get qualification,we came 3rd on 38 points which was enough to get qualification into the 2nd phase

    I thought South American competition structures were complicated. Good job getting into the 2nd phase! How many games do you have to play in the 2nd phase and how do you rate your chances of promotion?

    I know what you mean,South American structures seem like a walk in the park compared to this

    In the 2nd phase,we will play 3 games.In our group,we have Persih (Topped Group C!),Persik (Topped Group B!) and Persema (Topped Group A!).My chances......not too good....It wasn't possible to get a harder group!

    Congrats on promotion!! Nice work. What's the significance of the Grand Final if you got promoted anyway? Just determines who the official champions are?

    Grats on the successful season to kickstart the campaign. Not taking long to adjust to the new game, heh?

    I'd never manage in Indonesia just because of the nightmare that are the team names. Everyone starts with "Pers".

    rancer890 - Thanks I had a look and can see I can have up to five foreigners which is handy and a useful improvement,I will be looking at the wings to bring them in on as they are weaker areas.I think I will be fighting relegation most of the season!

    cerud - Thanks Wasn't bad was it but I think I made a mistake and may have to build the squad from near enough scratch.With most of my team,I only offered one year deal and this has come back to bite me in the ass as other teams are snapping them up!

    noikeee Thanks.I know what you mean,in the Indonesian Premeir League,I counted 20 teams out of 36 beginning with "Pers"

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Premier Division - 2011/12 - End of Season


    Transfers-Part 1 - Transfers-Part 2 - A lot of activity took place as I basically had to build a team from scratch as all we had was one goalkeeper when I took over,I was confident that with the squad I now possessed,we would survive relegation and look to finish in the top half.The one player who left was a moaner and I had basically had enough as he wasn't performing as well as he could so I dropped him then released him when I wouldn't give in to his demands.

    Competitions
    Premier Division - 1st Phase Group C - 2nd Phase - Grand Final - WOW!!!What a season,I never thought we would gain promotion seeing as I was expecting a top half finish at best but we kept proving the pundits wrong and we gained a place in the 2nd phase due to having one of the two highest points totals out of the 3 third placed teams,my only problem with the 1st phase was our consistency as we very good at the start,below average for the middle and had a good ending.If we a were a bit better during the middle of the season then we could have snagged a automatic spot.The 2nd phase saw us play at our best which is what was needed,we dominated for the majority against Persih and Persema but we came away with 2-1 victories.It was a more even game against Persik and snuck a 1-0 victory to put us into the grand final.The grand final was a bit anti-climatic as we didn't really play as we ll as we could so were on the receiving end of a deserved defeat.I give the season an overall A grade as we played above expectation clinched promotion,if we had the consistency then it would have been A+.

    Indonesian Cup - 1st Round - Not much to say really,two even sides and one controversial penalty is what it took to separate both sides.We drew the first leg 2-2 which was a fair result,it was looking like it was going to be the same score in the 2nd leg until they scored in the 4th minute of injury time via dodgy penalty.Can't say I am too pleased.

    Players,Stats and Awards
    A quick look at Persepam Pamekasan squad stats

    Alex Cabrera was a bargain signing seeing as he was a free transfer and was the perfect fit for my AMC role,he was the top scorer with 13 goals and topped the assist chart with 10!His performances saw him rewarded with Premier Division Player of the Year and Fans Player of the Year.

    Special mentions to Toni Pebian and Dedi Sutrisno who both performed brilliantly throughout the season and played key parts in our successful campaign.

    Overview
    A totally shocking season as I was not expecting this one bit,I was initially aiming for survival then building a team from their.The promotion has kind of screwed me over as I was only offering one year contracts which has kind of screwed me as other clubs have come in and are trying to swipe them so I am praying some of the better ones accept our contract offers.Our Cup run was ended early and controversially which didn't impress me one bit so I will be looking at getting further into the competition next season.

    One bit of interesting news came in my inbox,we are having a New Stadium! It only holds 2769 but it is better then nothing but alot of the Indonesian clubs were having stadiums built as well.I currently have status of untouchable with this chairman but he is willing to listen to offers which is not a good thing with my past history of takeovers!

    In Euro 2012 news,Germany win the tournament with a 1-0 win.

    England go out in the group stages which contained Ukraine,Croatia and Romania.John Terry then quits has captain and is replace by Rio Ferdinand while Frank Lampard takes over the vice captain role.

    Shocks of the tournament were Poland and Croatia making the semi-finals!

    Great season, well done on the promotion, and for understanding how the complex league structure works!

    And a new stadium too! You have hit the ground running

    Thanks!It is definitely one of the more of the complex structures,makes Mexico and Argentina with their average points seem like a walk in the park

    There was alot of new stadiums built in Indonesia,counted 16 across the country so I might have to see if Indonesia is holding any competitions. Thanks again

    Hopefully I will have the pre-season report up tonight.

    Indonesia is easier than Brazil imo.

    Nice to see you got a new stadium and hopefully you can fill it up soon!

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Super League - 2012/13 - Pre-Season


    Budgets
    Transfer Budget - £0 (£0 Remaining)
    Wage Budget - £5,000 p/w (Currently spending £4,235 p/w)

    Pre-Season Transfers - Done what I could on such a tight budget,let players go who I felt wouldn't make the grade and got in much higher quality players to help the club fight for survival in the new season.Salinas and Clayton Carioca fill up the two remaining foreign slots which has helped give a bit more balance to the team.

    Expectations
    Super League - Avoid Relegation - Avoid Relegation
    Indonesian Cup - Be competitive - 3rd Round

    Pre-Season Fixtures


    Key Players
    Clayton Carioca - DR - This signing took up one of the two free foreign spots,he was a necessity as we were lacking at right back,he is rated as the best player in the team but now we have balance in the back four as we do have a solid defence as DC and LB are slightly behind this guy in quality,he should be able to make a difference when it counts.

    Munadi - DC - Another free signing,he was released from Super League side Persib but our scouts rated him as a very good player (3.5* current ability,5* potential ability).With this in mind,he could become a rock in our defence considering he is only 23.He can head,mark and tackle which makes him a valuable asset to the defence.

    Andy Salinas - ML/AML - Another free signing who took up the last of the free foreign spots.I needed another player who could help contribute with goals and assists to relieve a bit of pressure off my AMC and ST.He looks like the player who will be able to do that,he can cross,dribble and finish which is ideal as I will be playing him in the AML position which will give us strength when attacking.

    Alex Cabrera - MC/AMC - Him playing last season was literally showing us being a one man team as he topped both goal scoring and assists for us.I am hoping that during pre-season,I have managed to find some really good buys to help relieve the pressure off him.He was lethal in the AMC role but my major concern is the fact that he is 33 so he hasn't got much longer left in his career.I am hoping he can do more of the same this season as we need to do everything to ensure our survival.

    Sebastian Balbi - ST - Didn't have the best of time up front last season but still managed to score 8 in 22 appearances which was a good return.I will let him off for last season as our attacking force was just him and Cabrera for the majority as my midfield was quite a let down.He is another one who is getting on abit but he still has another couple of seasons left in him.My aim for him this season is to hit 8 or more goals which may help fire us to survival.

    Ones to watch
    Adixi Lenzivio - GK - 1.5* CA,3.5* PA - Bought in as a backup,he will get better as he is young and can be our number one in the next few years.He is already ranked as our number two and can be alot better then our current number one.Quite shocked to get him on a free which is pleasing,just recently made his u21 debut for Indonesia.

    Nurdin Bia - AMC - 1.5* CA,4.5* PA - Bought in as the future replacement for Cabrera,he is currently ranked as the 4th best AMC but for potential wise,he tops the chart.Was bought in on a a free last season as the club he was on trial at didn't want him so I swooped in courtesy of my scouts finding him.Did well in the two appearances he made so I am expecting more from him as he develops.Only 18 but worth £75k,if things don't go well financially,he may have to be sold to make the money!

    Pre-Season Overview
    Pre-Season bought a bit of change to the club as we let those go who wouldn't cut it and bought in much higher quality players which I hope can help us reach our goal of survival.Things were made a little bit more difficult due to the chairman deciding to cut our wage budget by £500 p/w which is two or three layers which could have helped out and give us more strength.As for the fixtures,1 win,2 draws and 1 loss,can't say I'm too impressed as the loss was to a division 1 side where as the other 3 games were against Premier Division sides.

    During the pre-season,we had a failed attempt of a takeover bid.I am starting to get this uneasy feeling about this takeover as it is going exactly like it did in my last save....first takeover failed,second takeover succeeded then fired!!!I hope I'm wrong but you never know with these things.My only aim is to survive otherwise I will probably find myself out of a job as they want to avoid relegation which may be tough considering there are four relegation spots!

    roganp - Thanks

    Raware - I have very little fear,the worse they can do is sack me It was a bit of shock to get promoted so I had to look at players a couple of levels above what I already had.

    With regards to my start in the Super League,we've played 4,won 2 and lost 2....scoring 8 and conceding 8.What I have learnt is that I have more then enough quality to beat the lower teams while we have nowhere near the quality the top teams have.This is going to be a long season.....

    Congrats again on the promotion and the new stadium! Even though it only holds 2,769, I'm still a bit concerned about somebody over there cutting corners on the building project - did I read correctly that it's only costing £65k? That's less than my house! Here's hoping it's not held together with bits of string and sticky-back plastic.

    Thanks

    Corners being cut could be a major concern as apparently.....I'm already playing in it For that price,it is held with string and sticky-back plastic as well as 692 wooden seats!

    cerud - Thanks Possible more explosions on the way considering this is me We are averaging 1429 which is over half the capacity.

    AK22 - I have to agree,the stadium names are still bad.I should be demanding it to be named after me for getting a miraculous promotion

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Super League - 2012/13 - Mid-Season


    Competitions
    Indonesian Super League




    Indonesian Cup
    Major,major news....we are on a mini cup run!!!We are currently in the 3rd round where we will face first divsion side PSDS Deli Serdang after we knocked out Persipro and PSMS,so overall we have done much better then last season and have currently exceeded my expectations!

    Mid-Season Overview
    Wow,wow and wow!!Even I am stunned after the slow start we made but I will put that down to the team gelling to my tactics.As soon as my defence gelled,they were practically unbreakable which allowed us to play our game how I wanted it to!Another thing that has pleased me is reaching the 3rd round in the cup which is a much better performance than we managed last season!

    My only wish is that the season would end now as I no a bad spell can appear out of nowhere and ruin things so we must keep playing our best to achieve the unthinkable.I also find the fact that I have lost 5 times and top the league even more funny,just shows getting a draw is not always better then losing!!

    Well.. easy so far? Back-to-back titles would be awesome.

    You seem like the sort of guy that needs to step up to a harder challenge, like, trying to win the Champions League with a sanmarinese team based solely on youth academy graduates. Just a random idea that popped out of my head, totally unrelated to other careers in this forum.

    Or maybe stick to this team until you win the Club World Cup with them.

    Not really easy....more nerve wrecking then anything else,unfortunately I didn't actually win the title last season!!

    I'm going to have to plan right ahead then......win the five continental cups with any teams then do a bit of journeyman visiting different countries,on the next level take a team from the lowest leagues in England,Brazil,Wales,Spain,China and South Africa to continental glory.As for extremely hard challenges...I'll do give youth a chance challenges in England,Argentina,Italy,N.Ireland,South Korea and South Africa......that should do me till FM13

    Wouldn't go that far...I'd be at the club for anything between 10-15 years....wouldn't be much of a hitch hiker would I

    You should do,I have found it very good and not come across any major problems (yet!) If you do a big career save and set yourself different challenges then it should more then last!

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Super League - 2012/13 - End of Season


    Final Transfers - Those who left the club were never going to make it due to the unexpected promotion so were not good enough for this level.The players that I bought in were to help elevate the club as well as help meet the expectations.The two foreigners who I bought in were much better then the whole team we had at our disposal and will become indispensable to the club

    Competitions
    Super League - League Table - What a brilliant first season we had in top flight,if it wasn't for the slow start we made,then we may have finished a bit higher!We had a brilliant first half to the season where we top the table around mid-season,unfortunately we let ourselves down with silly performances which saw us slip and end up finishing 4th but at the end of the season,we restored a bit of pride to make it look more respectable.My only concern is that due to doing so well this season,it may turn up the pressure next season which may not be a good thing!

    Indonesian Cup - 4th Round - A nice little cup run which was alot more successful then last seasons attempt where we didn't get out of the first round.We beat Persipro 2-1 on agg before dispatching PSMS 5-3 on agg!The 3rd round was our easiest tie in which we beat PSDS 5-2 on agg.We were unlucky to go out in the 4th round as both games were even so it was inevitable that the tie would be decided by one goal!

    Players,Stats and Awards
    Alex Cabrera was the main man once again,he was the top scorer with 9 goals in 39 appearances as well as topping the assist chart with 15.Even though he is getting on a bit,he is still a quality player at this level and I hope I can still get a couple of years out of him as still not got a decent replacement in yet!

    Clayton Carioca won Fans Player of the Year and it was a award which he truly deserved.He was the best performer in the team by quite a bit and he kept the attacking force at bay when it came to our left back position being attacked.He is a high level calibre of player for the club and I hope I can similar calibre to help bring the club to the next level.

    Special mentions to Andy Salinas and Agus Susanto who both played vital roles in our successful season,the quality we have managed to bring in,has helped us rise to new levels and these two both played their parts perfectly.

    Overview
    All I can really say is that it was an absolutely brilliant first season in the Super League!Okay,we couldn't maintain our form which saw us top the table but we got a top 4 finish and hopefully we can build from there.Another plus to the season was reaching the 4th round of the Indonesian Cup in which we were very unlucky to go out but as the saying goes,you can't win them all!

    To a fantastic season,there will always be a downside to things and in this case.....two....the first being next season,our wage budget has dropped another £300 p/w which make things difficult!The second is to do with playing a waiting game,we've just had a takeover and the new chairman wants to name a new manager so I am actually tempted in this case to jump before I'm pushed but we will see what happens first!

    The good news is that the chairman has seen sense and decided to keep me on as manager and more good news comes in the shape of the training facilities being upgraded!

    4th is a very respectable result considering it's your first season in the division

    How long you planning on staying in Indonesia for? Especially now you're being linked to jobs in Europe.

    deltablue - Thanks,if I can find a very good Indonesian Keeper then I think I have got a chance

    AK22 - Thanks,I am finding this quite tougher then FM11!I think another couple of seasons to build my rep up but depends on the offer really,if I get a really good offer or it's a step up then I'll probably be gone!

    Persepam Pamekasan - Indonesian Super League - 2013/14 - Pre-Season


    Budgets
    Transfer Budget - £0
    Wage Budget - £4,800 p/w - Currently Spending £4,776 p/w

    Pre-Season Transfers - 13 players left which was necessary as we needed to free up the wage budget so we would be able to bring in less players who were better players but would cost more in wages,I am taking a risk in this and I hope it does pay off.The players I have bought in will give hopefully give the team more consistency as they are much better then what we have had.Siswanto and Irawan are two very bright prospects who both have 5* PA and were not signing contracts so I nipped in after scouting them,Siswanto is the better of the two so will probably play alot more.

    Expectations
    Super League - Stay Clear of relegation - I want a top half finish at minimum
    Indonesian Cup - Be Competitive - Quarter finals

    Pre-Season Fixtures


    Key Players
    Clayton Carioca - DR - Last seasons Fans Player of the Year,he was truly outstanding with his performances.All I can hope for is that he can continue in the same manner,although this time around he does have a stronger defence so hopefully there will be less pressure on him in the big games and my other defenders can contribute to success.

    Munadi - DC - He was a unsung hero last season but his performances for us have not gone unnoticed and has been capped during pre-season giving him the honour of being the first Persepam player to be fully capped.He was solid last season and played on the right hand side of Central defence which meant our right hand side was tight which helped with having very few goals onceded.

    Andy Salinas - ML/AML - He had a very good first season with the club,he started off slowly but soon found his stride.The beauty of playing at this level is that it doesn't really matter how old you are as you are still able to contribute.Still has a bit of pace and acceleration so I hope he is able to contribute like last season.

    Alex Cabrera - MC/AMC -He is 34 and still going strong,he was our main man last season as he shot us to a top 4 finish and helped us by providing many assists.It will be nice if I can win a trophy as this guy deserves to win one before he retires.As I said with Salinas,it doesn't matter how old you are if your able to contribute and he is more then able to.Probably has two or three season left in him depending on how fast we progress.

    Joao Paulo - ST - New striker who arrived after having a week trial.He will be our main goal threat this season after Balbi left the club but saying that,Paulo is also much better then Balbi so I hope we don't have to rely on Cabrera as much as we have done.He seems to be a bit of a nomad as we are his 8th club since 2008!I am hoping he can get around the 12-15 goal mark.

    Ones to Watch
    Abdul Yandri - DM/MC -2* CA,5* PA - The weaker of the two but is still the 3rd best MC in the team which shows that we are lacking in depth in that area.He will get game time at some point in the season and hopefully it will aid his development as a footballer especially as we are having a training facility upgrade.He is the more defensive of the two so will be doing the defensive work when he plays.

    Aris Siswanto - MC/AMC - 2.5*CA,5*PA (MC),3.5*CA,5*PA (AMC) - This kid looks like he can be a star at Super League level and that is going by from what I have seen in pre-season.Already has 3 u21 caps to his name.I have a hard decision to make as he plays best in the AMC role which is Cabrera who can also play MC.He is the attacking of the two youngsters,he will either play the support role in the MC position or play as the AMC with Cabrera being in the support role but it's a positive sign to have these selection problems.

    Pre-Season Overview
    An eventful pre-season to say the least,had to play the waiting game first of all to see if I got to keep my job then when I did,the chairman decided to upgrade the training facilities!I had to let alot go in order to bring in better quality players no thanks to yet another wage budget drop!I am happy with my dealings although we need another Goalkeeper,a DC and a LB,if I can get them in then we could potentially challenge for the title but as of now,I haven't found any of those I need.I am very pleased with the way the pre-season fixtures went and just the one defeat is an encouraging sign but as it's not the real deal,I will take them with a pinch of salt.

    I will still be here for the time being unless I mess things up or I get an appealing job offer,I would like to win some silverware but even an improvement of last season's performances will be satisfying as it will show we are building up for the future.With a bit of luck we may even be able to sneak something this year!

    Great first season in the Super League! Glad to see you got to keep your job - looking forward to seeing how you do this season! Any danger of another team trying to snatch Carioca away from you?

    Thanks

    No one is interested in Carioca which suits me fine as I need him due to him being the best defender in the team!From what I've seen so far,things have been fairly even so I do feel good about our chances this season.

    Thanks

    They've both made promising starts so far,Abdul Yandri has made four appearances so far and tops the assist chart with two while Aris Siswanto has one goal in his four appearances which has left me pleased with what I've seen from both of them.

    Just received this offer through my inbox



    I have decided to take this as they are a bigger club in a bigger nation,they are massively underachieving in the BSP and also have some excellent youth prospects as well!

    Dagenham and Redbridge - Blue Square Premier - Takeover - 2013/14


    Takeover Position


    We are predicted to finish 5th in the league but as you can see,we are massively underachieving.We actually do have quite a good squad so to see them doing so bad is quite a surprise.I will be using the same formation as I did at Persepam and the weaknesses I have identified are in goal and the AMC position but other then that it is a good squad.

    Thoughts
    I feel that we will be able to turn this around as we have a strong team and we also have strength in depth,we also have two 5* potential ability players in Ashley Gallagher and Danny McKenzie who both should have a bright future with the club.

    I won't be judged on the performance in the league and we are still in the FA Cup and FA Trophy so we may be able to do something this season 31 games to play in the league and only 9 points behind a playoff spot so it is more then doable,I also want a cup run of any sort which will make the season more then satisfactory.

    At least you're free to rise the table without pressure.

    Dagenham and Redbridge - Blue Square Premier - Mid-Season - 2013/14


    Competitions
    Blue Square Premier
    Fixtures from Takeover


    FA Cup - Made it to the 2nd round where we were knocked out by League 1 side Charlton losing 1-0.
    FA Trophy - Didn't make it past the first round where we lost 2-1 to Ebsfleet

    Overview
    Barring the FA Trophy,it has been a very good start.We had a good run in the cup before losing to Charlton in round 2 and in the league,we have managed to move up to 9th in the league.What makes this sound even better is that the squad is not fully familiar with the formation I've decided to use which is a 4-4-2 diamond so I feel we can still get better.

    At this point,we are still 10 points behind 5th place which is the lowest place to get a playoff but it is more then achievable,however I will not be signing any players due to being over budget so I will make do with what is available to use.The highlight was beat Darlington 4-1,after the match,Darlington decided to sack their manager and the media made me favourite for the job......how about NO!Hopefully we will be able to keep up our good form and may be able to challenge the playoff places which will be brilliant if we can make it after being 17th when I tookover.

    good turnaround so far. If you keep it up I think you might be able to knick a playoff spot. Good luck

    I'm hoping I can nick a playoff spot that would almost be unthinkable after coming in when we were 17th!

    Nice career move and an excellent turnaround! Hope you can keep it up for the rest of the season and a couple of teams above you have a collapse!

    You've done very well in the short time you've been at the club. Keep it up and who knows what might happen...

    Done one more game,we won 2-1 against Forest Green which has put us in 8th and now only 8 points behind,hopefully the comeback is on!

    If I'm being realistic,I'd be happy finishing in the top 8 after where we were but it's not over till the fat lady sings

    Loads of time still so you should be able to grab a playoff spot.

    Playoffs is still a possibility as anyone can beat anyone at the moment,tthe team who can take the ball and run with it will have a massive advantage as it is anyone's chance at the moment.

    Just a quick update on the situation as we are into the middle of March and boy is it close!

    Wrexham have to be the favourites due to having three games in hand due to their participation in the Welsh Cup but anyone of us can win the league.

    Also had the youth candidate squad through and it looks quite promising!

    My only worry is with Dean Knight and Seamus Byrne being unambitious which could slow their progress down but other then that it looks quite good.
