    SRL88's Career - January 2029 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    A very solid month for us as we manage to climb two points above Man City in the table. The Leicester game was one of them typical games which we werent at our best but we managed to win. Better to win bad than not win at all I suppose. We put in two really solid performances in tough games away to Aston Villa & Stoke before beating a close league rival in Chelsea. We found ourselves 2-0 up but they scored with a few minutes left for a nervy finish but we held on. Despite a 0-0 draw against Man City I was really pleased. Despite it being a top of the table clash we totally outclassed them all over the park but just failed to find the net. This didnt worry us though as we went to the Emirates and put in a very solid display to grab a 2-0 win.

    January 2029 - Continued



    FA Cup 4th Round


    A poor draw away to the Championship side. We struggled to get going and looked to be going out of the competition with 10 minutes left. We had a man sent off and having made all our substitutions we received an injury, leaving us with 9 men. We battled on though and with just a couple of minutes left we scored a goal to force a replay.

    League Cup Semi-Final


    Two excellent performances and results against Arsenal see us march into the Final where we will face West Ham.

    SRL88's Career - February 2029 - England

    Friendly


    A nice way to start 2029 with a comfortable win over Japan. I made a lot of changes from our usual qualifying squad and brought in numerous players for their first cap. We struggled a little in the first half and had to rely on an own goal to give us the lead. We dominated throughout the second half but had to wait till late on for a couple of goals to make things look a little more comfortable, but overall I am really pleased with the new boys.

    Final

    Road to Wembley



    Liverpool



    A really solid run for us which included some very tough ties. We faced a tough tie against neighbours Everton who we managed to overcome 1-0 before a very disciplined performance away to Hull resulted in a 4-1 win. We faced Man Utd in the Quater-Final, just days after a draw in our league game against them, but boy was this different. We showed our superiority and put four past them in the process. Two very good performances against Arsenal resulted in a 6-2 win on aggregate.

    West Ham


    An easier run for the Hammers than ourselves. They won all their ties very comfortably, beating lower level opposition in Barnsley & Middlesbrough before ties against Premiership level opposition. A very good display away to WBA gave them a 3-1 win before they swept Newcastle aside to set up a Semi-Final tie against Ipswich. The Championship club put up a decent fight, but West Ham showed their class in both legs to reach the Final.


    Summary



    So its us who lift the first trophy of the season with a 1-0 win at Wembley. We dominated the game throughout but couldnt make our chances count. It was Ganso who scored the only goal of the game in the first half. West Ham pressed us hard in the second half but our strong backline held firm.

    Haha yeah they are. They signed Ian Prior in the summer for £3.2m, who is a goalkeeper I had at the club but couldnt find space for him in the first team. I sent him out on loan to my official feeder club Darlington for 3 seasons in a row and then he spent a year in the reserves before being sold.

    Oddly however, he is my number 1 in the England Squad haha.

    SRL88's Career - February 2029 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    Only two games in February due to other commitments, but a good one at that. Two very solid results keep us sat top of the Premier League with a game in hand, which we will look to take advantage of to re-open our 5pt lead at the top of the table.

    FA Cup 4th Round Replay and 5th Round


    Replay, replay, replay!! God I am sick of the sight of the FA Cup now. We comprehensively beat Fulham in a replay before a double header against WBA. We struggled at home to them but in the replay, a superb display from Roland Koffi was the difference. I half wish we didnt go through because now we have an 'enjoyable' tie away to Man City in the Quater-Final.

    Champions League First Knockout Round 1st Leg

    SRL88's Career - March 2029 - England

    World Cup Qualifier




    I dont know what the **** this was but what ever it was, it was dog ****. Jesus christ we were poor!!! We were missing a few of our big guns, including captain Chris Ord but this was no excuse. Id rather not talk about how bad we were. Next up is an away fixture against the Czech's.

    SRL88's Career - March 2029 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    Hmmmmmmm. Could be better is how I would describe it. On paper it doesnt look to bad because we won four of our five fixtures but the run-in favours Man City. We put in two fantastic displays, putting 4 each past Cardiff and Blackburn before an assured display at home to Nottingham Forest. We followed this up with a disappointing defeat away to struggling Birmingham who scored with their only shot on target. That seemed to effect us going into the Merseyside Derby because we were well below par in the first half which resulted in us falling behind. I gave the lads a talking to and in the second half we were a different team. Three excellently worked goals were enough to ensure that we came from behind to grab a vital three points.

    FA Cup Quater-Final


    I fielded a weaker team and Im glad we did. I wasnt to bothered about this game because my focus is elsewhere.

    That spanking I mentioned? Here it is!!! A truely dominant performance from us as we march through. We have been handed a good tie against Malaga in the Quater-Final. If we win that game we will face either Bayern Munich or Fenerbache in the Semi-Final.

    SRL88's Career - April 2029 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    Well we are nearly there but we havent made it easy for ourselves. We were shocking against Man Utd and deserved to be beat. Thankfully, Man City dropped points as the gap was closed to three points. We got back on track though with three fine performances. A solid win away to Wolves was followed by two good wins at home to Spurs and Sunderland. Man City dropped points in this time as we enter the final month of the season 6pts ahead of our closest rivals with 3 games to go.

    Champions League Quater-Final




    Well....in the first leg we got was probably the most comfortable 1-0 win you will ever see, but in the second leg we folded. We started really, really well but conceded three first half goals in quick succession. We pressed in the second half but had two men sent off to end the game with 9 men. Malaga scored a goal late on to book their place in the Semi-Final.

    SRL88's Career - May 2029 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    Well we got there, but just!!! We have really made this run in difficult for ourselves and it couldnt have been much worse than this season. A very, very annoying defeat away to West Ham meant we had to do it the hard way because I following Man City's win that week-end, I knew that I would have to go to Chelsea on the final day and get at least a draw. We comprehensively beat Blackpool 4-0 and then Man City beat West Ham 4-1, meaning we went into the final week-end of the season with a 3pts lead, facing a tough side away from home whilst Man City travelled to Blackpool.

    We were shocking for the first 20 minutes and found ourselves a goal down, but Chris Ord got us back into it. Whilst all this was happening, Man City were 2-1 down away to Blackpool and both teams had 10 men....HT. In the second half, Chelsea took the lead but we pegged them back immediately. Things were made a little more tense when Man City equilised, but we took a massive step towards the title when we took the lead after 72 minutes. Chelsea hit back though with 10 minutes remaining to make things a little more tense, and following this Man City scored to take the lead with 5 minutes remaining. However, it didnt come into effect much as we held on to get the point we needed and secure our record 26th league title.

    Yeah I expect them to bounce straight back with that momey. The board have sacked Temur Ketsbaia who is the best manager they have had for quite some time.

    Monday 21st February 2029

    Christian Purslow: Welcome to this press conference, and I wish to introduce you Steven Longstaff.

    Steven Longstaff: Hi, I would like to let you know that I wont be taking any questions during this press conference.

    I sit here today and wish to inform you all of my decision to resign as manager of Liverpool Football Club. I have been contemplating this decision for quite some time and after discussion's with my family I feel that it is the right decision for both myself and them. I have been the manager of Liverpool Football Club for 9 years and I have loved every single second of it, but I feel that it is now the right time for me and the football club to move on. When I arrived at the club I made it my aim to eclipse the record that Manchester United had set of 25 Premier League Titles and this season we have managed to do so by setting a new record of 26 League Titles.

    I made my feelings known to the board yesterday evening following the draw with Chelsea at the Chelsea Stadium, and although they informed me that the didnt wish for me to leave, they realised that this was a personal decision, and although I have achieved a career goal of managing the club I have loved my whole life, I feel that I need a new challenge as a manager.

    Since taking charge at Anfield, I have tossed my workload between managing Liverpool, Argentina and England and I now feel that I would like to focus my attention on one challenge. I am currently the manager of the England national team and I with the 2030 World Cup coming up next year I feel that I would like to solely focus on England's qualification for the tournament. I feel worn out with the constant hustle and bustle of club management as well as international management and feel that I need to recharge myself. I wish to spend time with my family as they have been fully supportive throughout my career, and I now feel that it is time for me to devote some attention to them.

    I have informed the board of my feelings as to who is the correct man to replace me. Now, it is up to the Liverpool board whether they wish to follow up on this or appoint their own man.

    Thank you for your time, and goodbye!!!

    SRL88's Career - Season Review - 2028/29 - Liverpool FC


    Premier League - Results 1 - Results 2 (1st - CHAMPIONS)

    Well we made extra hard work of the title this season, especially in the closing months, but we managed to claim the title and a record 26th league title. I honestly couldnt be happier about it. We really had to stick in this season as Man City were right on song and lead the way for quite some time. We managed to keep pace with them and overtake them in the later months. We dropped some silly points, especially against Birmingham and West Ham, but a draw away to Chelsea on the final day meant we claimed the league title.

    FA Cup (Knocked out in Quater-Final)

    I wasnt to bothered about the FA Cup and I wasnt really pleased about all the replay's we had to face. I have to say that I was a little pleased that we went out in the Quater-Final.

    League Cup (Winners)

    A really good run for us this season. We had to beat our two biggest rivals in Everton and Man Utd, as well as defeating Arsenal with two very impressive displays in the Semi-Final. Despite the scoreline, we thoroughly deserved to beat West Ham 1-0 in the Final.

    Community Shield (Runners-Up)

    We were pretty poor to be honest. This was in the stage of our shocking pre-season when most players were away on International duty.

    Champions League (Knocked out in Quater-Final)

    We flew through the Group Stage quite impressively, with some good wins along the way. In the knockout phase we came from behind to beat At.Madrid to set up a Quater-Final tie against Malaga. Despite possibly the most dominant 1-0 win you will ever see in the first leg, we were blown away in the return leg as Malaga booked their place in the Semi-Final.

    Transfers - Finances

    A few players brought in, but for big money. Overall, the season was good transfer wise.
    The finance screenshot was taken the day I left....but there is still over £60m to arrive in sponsorship money so the club is more than ok.

    Squad

    The squad is very good but needs a few tweaks. Its all set in stone for the next manager though.

    My Top 3 Players

    Celio - Our top scorer. Even more impressive that most goals came from either the wing or AM.
    Ganso - Like last season, the screenshot speaks for itself.
    Jose Leiva - Started & finished like a house on fire. Despite an average middle period he was still fantastic in the middle of the park.

    My replacement at Liverpool is Matias Almeyda who has left Palermo to join the Anfield outfit.


    I was immediately linked with the Palermo post.

    Well I wont be getting the Palermo job because Diego Simeone has left his post as Fiorentina manager after guiding them to second in the table to take up the post of a Palermo side who have just finished 5th. I take it money was involved .

    I am guessing this wont be the last link I will see.

    SRL88's Career - June 2029 - England

    World Cup Qualifier




    What a kick in the nads this result was. We dominated from first till last pretty much, but just couldnt score. The Czech's scored an injury time goal to completely shock me as we lose our second game in a row. We have 4 games remaining to qualify for the World Cup.

    You did say they finished second, so you will have Champions League. And you have room to manouver wage wise. Depends on weather you want to dedicate all your energies to qualifying Engalnd to the WC, or want more.

    Yeah its a huge advantage that they finished in the Champions League spaces. It give me a lot of room for buidling.

    I have delayed it for a week to think about it.

    Yeah its been annoying the last 2 games. The quality of the regens coming through the English ranks is appauling so Im finding that part of it a struggle.

    Im not sure if I want to manage in Italy. Ive gone to click accept twice now but then stop myself.

    Fantastic way to sign off at Liverpool Although England looks like going horribly wrong

    I'd take the Fiorentina job; just don't go punching too many of the players! ;)

    sad you quit liverpool but the picked quite the replacement i remember Matias Almeida was the second best manager of all time in one of my saves
    i wouldn't sign for fiorentina yet, focus on the england job and see how the world cup goes
    you will easily get a job since you had such a career so far

    We have four fixtures remaining. Albania (h), Faroe Islands (h), Lithuania (a) and Georgia (a). We should make the play-off's but I will still be unhappy with it.

    I have delayed the Fiorentina decision again for another week. Im a little up in air about it.

    Yeah he seems to have had a decent stint at Palermo so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I personally would have done it 'boot room' style and promoted Steven Gerrard into the post with Jamie Carragher as his assistant. Games eh!!!

    Well Fiorentina decided to look elsewhere, but I have just received these two:




    Two decent offers. Now do I want to return to Turkey or go to Germany where I said I would only manage Hoffenheim? I could also reject both.

    I would take GS, but as a Galatasaray supporter myself that's quite a biased opinion ;).

    Interestingly at 17:00, they play Fenerbahce to decide the title, what timing eh?

    Go to GS! Finish what I couldn't finish...a Champions League title...

    I would actually write 'Good luck' more, going from a club (and ownership) I dislike to a club I really grown to like due to FM.

    SRL88's Career - New Club Update - Galatasaray SK

    Name: Galatasaray SK
    Nickname: Cim Bom
    Stadium: Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi Turk Telekom Arena (52,695 all-seater)
    Status: Professional




    So its been under 6 weeks since I stepped down as manager of Liverpool Football Club and I am back in club management, and back in the country where it all began for me. I have joined the club on a 4 year contract and I am really looking forward to managing in Turkey again. I really enjoyed my first stint in this country and I cant wait to get stuck into something new.

    Board Expectations:
    Turkish Premier League: Win it
    Turkish Cup: Be competitive
    Champions League: Reach the group stage

    My Expectations:
    Turkish Premier League: Challenge for the title
    Turkish Cup: I would love a trophy in my first season
    Champions League: If I can get through the grpup I will be chuffed

    Budgets:
    Transfer: £25m
    Wage: £1,571,929 (Currently spending £1,093,339)
    Balance: £38,583,234

    Squad:
    I have brought Steven Gerrard with me and he is now my assistant so these are his ratings. They served me well at Liverpool and I am sure they will here. The squad looks pretty good I must say.

    Key Player(s):
    Oumar Keita - I actually tried to sign him when I was at Liverpool so its nice to have the chance to work with him now.
    Andres Paradiso - Physical stats .
    Miguel Angel Bone - I really like the look of this guy. He looks a really solid player for this level.
    Hristo Simeonov - He looks like a very good lone striker and will most likely be the main source of goals.

    Yaay! Look forward to seeing you bring GS some trophies, looks like you need to trim the squad though, too many foreigners.

    I will take your advice on board Sir ;). I will be replacing a few people though.

    Yeah they did. After the last game of the season they sacked Temur Ketsbaia and replaced him with Alex Schalk. They are listed as 'rich' and have so far spent £4.5m in the transfer window. I expect that to rise though.

    Nice pick! My only experience related to Galatasaray is one of their former players, Faryd Mondragon played for my home team last year. Great player and extremely nice guy. Good luck in turkey and don't forget the gravy!

    I promise I wont forget .

    I had never managed in Turkey before this career and I enjoyed my time with Kirklareli Spor so this should be good.

    Well Galatasaray have just been crowned league champions after a 0-0 draw with Fenerbahce today, hopefully you can follow suit!

    A very unexpected move! Dominating England with one of the world's great clubs to the Turkish league with a club that's still great in its own way but not on Liverpool's level.

    Still, I think it's a good move and certainly takes your save in a different direction. I'm on board as much as ever.

    I agree that they definitely arent on Liverpool's level on any way, and I dont expect this to be a long term stay, but I really am looking forward to this. Its going to be nice going into Europe especially being the underdogs and springing a few surprises hopefully.

    Looks like Paradiso's crossing and Bone's first touch passes could make Simeonov into a real goalscoring machine

    Well I would agree with you, but when I received the offers from Fiorentina, Wolfsburg and Galatasaray, I sat down with my family and discussed the options. The deciding factor for me was the fact that my family loved the two years we spent in Turkey and overall, it was them who tempted me back into club management so quick. I was ready for a break from it, but they were so hell bent on me getting back into it and moving back to Turkey that I had to take the opportunity.

    Great move, don't get me wrong this thread was very good when you were at Liverpool but this move brings a much higher level of interest from me. I am looking forward to it because I have Turkey loaded on my save and would love to end up there at some point, good luck!

    SRL88's Career - Pre-Season - 2029/30 - Galatasaray SK

    Friendlies


    A pretty solid pre-season for us, and yes, I did set up a friendly against Liverpool . This wasnt really about results or even performances to an extent, it was more about the players getting used to my tactics.

    Champions League Qualifying Rounds


    First time I have ever seen these stages in the Champions League. We came through both rounds in comfortable fashion. Much like our friendlies, the players were still getting used to my tactics but overall we played really well. The way I have us playing makes us a lot more solid at the back whilst also inflicting damage going forward. It will take time, but we will get there. Still, we're into the group stages which is one of the board's objectives for the season out the way.

    Transfers - In


    I have spent quite a bit of money, especially for a Turkish club. I have had to try and rebuild an ageing squad as well as one with way to many foreign players in....and the quality of Turkish players around isnt exactly hard so its been a little difficult.

    Ethmen Ozmen who is the first player on the list was signed prior to me joining the club so he isnt my signing.

    Alejandro Saavedra - £3.5m - Although he classes as a foreign player I couldnt pass up this opportunity. He is a class act.

    Diego Azil - Free - Another foreign player, but for a free transfer I couldnt pass this up.

    Diego Biscay - £1.5m - A quality looking player. Should prove to be a right bargain.

    Erdem Soyatik - £3.5m - Signed from our feeder club Bucaspor. A very young player who has his whole career ahead of him. Brilliant signing.

    Ismail Ersoy - £4m - Im not sure if this will turn out to be a good signing, but we needed a Turkish player and he was available.

    Senol Yalcin - £3.8m - Despite being German, he actually classes as a Turkish player. Really looking forward to seeing his development over the next few seasons.

    Umit Kargin - £8.25m - My biggest signing. Born in Turkey but took up the option to play for Germany. Looks a quality centre back.

    Yuksel Gurses - Loan - Brought in to add depth to the squad and because he classes as home grown.

    Transfers - Out 1 - Transfers - Out 2


    A lot of players have left the club this summer but they are all the dead wood and crap who had to leave. All the players who have left on loan are players I tried to sell but no one wanted them which is a little annoying. At least they are off the wage bill though.

    Thanks...I think ;) ha.

    Yeah it is an interesting move and one I am pleased with. Although I could have probably stayed at Liverpool for another few seasons but I achieved what I wanted to achieve and it was time to move on. Fiorentina was probably the best offer of the three I had but I wasnt feeling it. The Galatasaray offer really stood out to me.

    Group Stage Draw




    A decent draw in all honesty. We should be able to put up a decent fight against Bayern, especially at home. I also think we will have to much for both Rangers and Leuven.

    Other Groups

    My computer has just crashed so I have to go back to before the second leg against Auxerre which means IF we qualify, the Champions League Groups will change so dont take notice of them and I will edit things as they happen.

    Yeah I was pretty pleased. We matched them throughout the game.

    Edited in the Champions League result against Auxerre and also the Group Stages. I guess that a game crashing can have a positive outcome .

    Are you following in Graeme Souness' footsteps?! ;) If so, Southampton and Torino better brace themselves

    Good luck!
