    Cheers .

    I will be playing the World Cup tonight at home, probably before the Liverpool match at which point I should have a pretty decent World Cup update if I do it the way I plan.

    Hoping to reach the 2nd Round .

    Ooft, I'm now jealous. You have the prospect of playing a World Cup and then watching your team (hopefully) make it to Wembley.

    Always wanted Liverpool to do well (mainly because my cousin is a fan).

    Fingers crossed. Not sure how we will approach it, but I am expecting a much better performance than on Saturday. Im hoping that defeat will give us the kick up our arse that we have needed all season. Much like how the 6-1 defeat for Man Utd did for them.

    Great ahcievement getting promtion after where Blackpool were when you took over, that really is something indeed.

    Also good luck in the World Cup, it certainly looks like second place is up for grabs in your group.

    SRL88's Career - Season Review - 2017/18 - Blackpool FC



    Championship - Results 1 - Results 2 (3rd - 18th on arrival - Promoted via Play-Off's)

    What a fantastic season for us. When I took charge at the end of November the club were massively underachieving and that all changed pretty quickly. From my appointment until the end of the season we lost just 4 games in the league (excluding Play-Off's) to give ourselves a fantastic chance of promotion. Our form carried us all the way through until the last day of the season but sadly a disappointing draw against Wigan on the final day meant we had to settle for a play-off berth.

    In the Play-Off's we had to battle our way past Swansea to make it to Wembley. In the first leg we probably deserved defeat but turned it around fantastically to give us a 3-2 win on aggregate. The Final pitted us against Norwich, who despite having a man sent off hung on and we had to rely on penalties to gain promotion to the Premiership. Overall though, fantastic achievement.

    FA Cup (Lost in 4th Round)

    An absolutely fantastic peformance and result away to Aston Villa drew us at home to Everton. Despite matching them, their composure was better than ours and they moved on into the 5th Round.

    League Cup (Lost in 2nd Round)

    Out before I arrived.

    Transfers - Finances

    A lot of transfer activity, some from the previous regime, some from me. The players I brought in were brilliant and had a vital part in our improvement.
    Finances are ok. Im not worries though because when we hit the Premiership things will improve.

    Squad

    We have a pretty decent squad but to compete in the Premiership we need a few improvements. For the Championship its a good squad but there is room for improvement. Hopefully in the off season we can bring a few in.

    My Top 3 Players

    Frank Nouble - Although he was only brought in during the January window, his overall play, as well as his goals and assists were brilliant. A great signing!!!
    Thomas Guerbert - An excellent left winger. When I joined he wanted to leave, but how his tune changed when he met the great man Steven Longstaff .
    Mxolisi Mbambo - The clubs vice captain and what a player he is. Really vital to our defence and was rewared with the Young Player of the Year Award.

    Got a few things to update at some point tonight including links to the Fulham and Newcastle jobs and a World Cup update. Will probably be up about 9ish I would think.

    Newcastle was a massive job opportunity, hope your decision to stick with Blackpool proves fruitful!

    Knockout Phase




    So its France who lift the World Cup for the second tournament in a row. Some pretty suprising teams, especially Belgium who made it all the way to the Final in an impressive manner. The biggest shock of the tournament though probably goes to Canada finished second in a tough group and then went on to knock Brazil out.

    New Zealand Summary

    Pretty poor really, but we were playing much better opposition. We lost 3-2 to both Scotland and Japan in tight games, but were thrashed 5-1 off hosts Russia. Following the tournament I stepped down as manager of New Zealand.

    SRL88's Career - Season Preview - 2018/19 - Blackpool FC



    Board Expectations:
    Premier League:- Stay Clear of Relegation
    FA Cup:- Reach the 4th Round
    League Cup:- Reach the 3rd Round

    My Expectations:
    Premier League:- Avoid Relegation
    FA Cup:- Would love a trip to Wembley
    League:- As above

    Budgets:
    Transfer:- £9.3m
    Wage:- £549,806k (Currently spending £476,000k)
    Balance:- £4,885,934 (-£9,853,510 - Im not to bothered though because we will receive a lot of money over the course of the season)

    Squad:
    A pretty packed squad with a lot of talent. We should do pretty well. There are a few players who I would like to bring in and hopefully that will happen soon.

    Key Player(s):
    Matt Phillips - The winger comes back to Blackpool in a £1.8m deal. More experienced and a better player, he will be a big player for us.
    Mxolisi Mbambo - Clubs vice captain and a fantastic player.
    Alphonse Areola - Probably my best signing in my career so far. How he was available on a free come January is beyond me, but everybody else's loss is my gain.
    Lasha Akubardia - Signed on a free transfer and I may come to need his goals. Looks a fantastic player.

    You were probably on a hiding to nothing in NZ and their best two players had probably retied by then anyway. Kiwi's will console themselves they scored more goals than Australia. As an Australian I feel pretty disappointed that they performed just as dismally.

    I think I will be having a break from the International scene. Might look at getting another job after Euro 2020.

    Great promotion with Blackpool but always going to be difficult with NZ at the World Cup.

    I reckon I might have found it hard to turn Newcastle down.

    Was pretty easy for me. If my Dad found out, as a Sunderland fan he would have killed me . Plus, after managing Darlington I want a break from the North East of England (as you can see Im taking this seriously ).

    It hasnt come available yet, but I will try and force their hand the best I can . If McLeish (cant believe he is Liverpool manager) does get sacked, I will be first applying and I will travel to Liverpool every day to knock on the doors and beg for the job ha.

    SRL88's Career - August & September 2018 - Blackpool FC



    Premier League




    We obviously like to score a goal or two but cant defend for ****. Feels like Ian Holloway's Blackpool all over again. We started with a poor defeat away to Blackburn but followed it up with an impressive display and victory over Everton. An even game against Birmingham followed but it took a 92nd minute Jacob Mellis goal to give us a share of the spoils. Against Wolves we really should have won. They were 1-0 up pretty early in the game but had a man sent off and although we equilised, they went on to take the lead again, so we equilised again, only for them to go straight up the pitch and score a third. I was angry and let the leads know about it to and we made up for it with an impressive win over Leicester. We dominated the first half but took our foot off the pedal in the second which they bossed, but overall was a deserved win to leave us nicely in mid-table.

    League Cup


    A nice couple of wins in the League Cup to move into the Fourth Round. We had to battle past my former club Darlington in the Second and it took a late goal for us to get the win. We followed this up with a dominating performance at Bournemouth but they scored a late goal to cancel out our early one to take things to Extra Time. Our fitness levels showed in the extra period as we took advantage to win 3-1 and set up a Fourth Round tie away to Championship side Bristol City.

    Out of interest, who did he go to and how much for?

    Haha yeah. Probably one of the better options available for me to be honest. He was sold by Blackpool to Birmingham in the 2012/13 season for £4.4m and spent 3 seasons there before being sold to Blackburn for £3.4m but only played 10 games in 3 seasons there and I resigned him for £1.8m .

    Some decent results at home, if you continue to win against those sort of teams at home you will easily avoid relegation.

    Good start in the Premier League. If you managed seven points every six games you'd get beyond the "magical" 40 point mark.

    Nice signing in Jacob Mellis aswell. Just four seasons in on my Chelsea save and he looks really good, just a pity it was with Chelsea and I couldn't quite fit him in the side.

    SRL88's Career - October 2018 - Blackpool FC



    Premier League




    A stuttering month which has seen us fall down the table a little bit. We started with an average performance away to Stoke but managed to come away with a point. We performed much better against Newcastle and dominated large spells of the game but couldnt manage to find a winner in the game and once again had to settle with a point. I was expecting the worst against Chelsea but we more than matched them and things could have been a lot better than the 2-1 defeat we came away with. Our run of games coming up is going to be difficult and we're going to have to start winning games if we are going to give us a chance of survival.

    League Cup


    Another win in the League Cup which sets up a Quater-Final tie at Anfield, which probably means the end of the road for us but we will go there and have a go. The Quater-Final looks pretty straight forward really. Place your bets!!!

    Not a good month, but it was a tough game, that last one.

    Liverpool will be a real test in the League Cup!

    Not too bad that month, Chelsea was always going to be tough. Unlucky against Newcastle and Stoke.

    A trip to Anfield will be tough but looking at that table Liverpool aren't flying! You can beat 'em

    Will be a tense game. If I get my tactics right we could pinch a result.

    Haha . I think like that to when I play them...but every other time I see their name appear on the game I beg for a Liverpool win.

    Good job getting Blackpool back into the Premier League. I hope you can avoid the last day of the season relegation scenario though!

    Well this is interesting. Im being linked with jobs left right and centre now and I said I would be interested in a couple which brought on this reaction. I wasnt going to stand for it so....


    Im not going to have a board dictate to me what I can and cant say and although I have been enjoying my time at Blackpool but the board have been a bit annoying lately so I jumped before I was pushed. There are plenty of jobs available to so I will be applying.

    Didn't expect that

    I hope you go to the MLS with New York. It's on my things to do list but I'd like to see you try it!

    Think I'd give that a miss, not really a better option than where you were.

    My second job offer, and a lot more money for me personally. A huge club compared to Blackpool but are struggling in 15th place in the Premiership. If I accept...my first game in charge will be at home to Blackpool .

    SRL88's Career - New Club Update - Aston Villa FC

    Name: Aston Villa FC
    Nickname: The Villans
    Stadium: Villa Park (42,640 all-seater)
    Status: Professional


    So two days before my one year anniversary in charge of Blackpool FC, and after just five days out of a job, I find myself once again back in the hot-seat of management, this time with Aston Villa FC and officially took charge on Wednesday 21st November 2018.

    Board Expectations:
    Premier League:- Qualify for the Europa League (Wont be judged this season - 15th on arrival)
    FA Cup:- Reach the Sixth Round
    League Cup:- Knocked out in Third Round before I arrived

    My Expectations:
    Premier League:- Finish as high as possible, hopefully have the effect I did on Blackpool
    FA Cup:- Winning it would be nice
    League Cup:- N/A

    Budgets:
    Transfer:- £8.5m
    Wage:- £885,565k per week (Currently spending £822,249k per week)
    Balance:- -£34,417,226 (Seriously!!!! What the hell. Wish I could have seen this before I was appointed. I have work to do)

    Squad:
    There are some very, very good players in this squad which has me wondering why they are so low in the table. The only reason I can come up with is the fact that they never strengthened in the summer despite selling £26m worth of players. They have no outstanding loans so I am a little stumped as to why they are in such a financial position to not be able to strengthen.

    Key Player(s):
    Frank Huisman - Had a brilliant season in Germany last term. If I can get this guy firing we will be laughing.
    Mateo Kovacic - Looks an excellent playmaker and will hopefully be my main link up man.
    Johan Martial - A very strong centre half who will hopefully lead the backline.
    Giovani dos Santos - Fingers crossed he can recapture the form that made him one of the hottest prospects in Europe once upon a time.
    James McCarthy - Quality player, always liked him. Will be a main fixture in my midfield.

    Cool, when I went to Vitesse I told the press there were things going on behind the scenes that were not right.
