    Something I have just noticed actually. Talk about an incentive to win games.

    Interesting, never seen a league before where prize money is paid out for winning each individual game - the Turkish game must have progressed in recent years because in my save in 2015 the prize money for a win is only £238k

    Yeah I was surprised after we won a game in the league to receive money so I checked. Definitely not worth complaining about.

    Our last transfers of the Summer window

    Transfer(s) - In

    Ibrahim San - £5m - Home grown and well worth it. A very solid looking full back.

    Transfer(s) - Out

    Had to be sold in all honesty. A very good player, but approaching 30 and on high wages. It was the right decision.

    SRL88's Career - February 2029 - England

    World Cup Qualifiers




    Two good performances give us maximum points from our two games. We were really on song and were heading for top spot in the group but with moments remaining, the Czech's grabbed themselves two goals to hang onto top spot.


    With the fixtures remaining, I fully expect us to have to go through the play-off's.

    SRL88's Career - September 2029 - Galatasaray SK

    Super Lig




    I really couldnt have asked for a better start to life at Galatasaray really. We started the season with a fine 2-1 win over the leagu holders and our biggest rivals Fenerbache got us off to a fantastic start. We then put in a fantastic display against Trabzonspor to win 3-1. Ths was followed up by a fine 5-1 win and then probably one of the best wins of my career. We went down to 10 men against Dardanelspor when the score was 0-0 before falling behind. What followed was amazing. We came from a goal down to score a wonderful 4-1 win with 10 men. A comfortable 3-0 win followed before we were made to battle for a 1-1 draw, but this was still an excellent start to the season.

    Champions League




    So gutting. We were just say the better team, but we conceded with literally the last kick of the game. Still, 5 games to go so I am still confident.

    SRL88's Career - October 2029 - England

    World Cup Qualifying




    A little frustrating but there wasnt much that we really could have done as the Czech Republic won both of their games. Sadly for us, we will have to settle for the Play-Off's.

    World Cup Play-Off Draw


    Could have been worse.....a lot worse in fact. Im really pleased that we avoided Spain and Holland and I think we should be more than able to dispatch Serbia.

    Wow you should be really happy with Serbia. Denmark, Holland and Spain would be the worse teams to play against.

    But who knows maybe Serbia is a good team in 2029. Good luck

    SRL88's Career - October 2029 - Galatasaray SK

    Super Lig




    The most possible perfect month for us which got off to a great start with a 3-0 win over my former side Kirklarelispor. We followed this up with two fine 2-0 wins away from home before dispatching BUGSAS at home to go through the entire month having won every game without conceding with the gap at the top being 6pts.

    October 2029 - Continued



    Champions League




    Well with three games remaining we still have a chance of qualification. We beat German side OH 2-1 at home before a trip to Germany. I wasnt expecting anything from a game against a side who had won the league 13 seasons in a row and have also been in the Champions League Final for 6 of the last 7 seasons.

    Our remaining fixtures are now Bayern (h), Rangers (h) and OH (a). Rangers face OH (h), Us (a), Bayern (h) and OH have Rangers (a), Bayern (a) and Us (h).

    Woah!! Now I have a decision. Forget about budgets etc, but this is the one German club I want to manage and it is one of my targets to manage them in my career. I have really grown to love this club over the last few years in real life so I really have a tough decision on my hands.

    I have been at Galatasaray for little over 4 months but dont know whether to leave or not already. Im enjoying my time in Turkey, but is Hoffenheim to good for me to turn down or shall I hold out to manage them later on in my career?

    Help!!!

    If a club close to your heart approaches you, you take it. That offer may not materialise again for a very long time, if at all.

    I agree. If it's a club that you aim to manage at some stage in this career, it could be a while before the offer comes up again. Take it

    I am still unsure what to do about the job and can only delay it for a week. Looks like I have a big decision on my hands but I agree with what everyone is saying on both sides of the board.

    Really enjoyed catching up on this career and the new chapter at Galatasaray. They are a team close to my heart so my choice would be to stay with them. However, as Daz and Raware say, if you don't take the Hoffenhiem job now, you may never get the chance again...

    Reject it. I rejected TFC twice in the same save before to stay at my clubs.

    I like GS to the point where I will advise you to stay.

    I was just about to ask if you could delay it until the end of the season. Personally I would stay with Galatasary but I think you would enjoy it more moving to Hoffenheim.

    Destination Hoffenheim! Galatasaray will miss you, but you just have to do it. It's a journeyman career, some trips are short, some are longer. Turkey was apparently short one.

    So I have turned down the opportunity to manage Hoffenheim. In the end I just couldnt do it.

    I have been at Galatasaray for less than half a year and I didnt think it was right to leave them in the lurch, even if it was for a club I want to join. I have decided that I will see out the season in Turkey and then make my next decision from there.

    Wow Hoffenheim! Gotta go boss, I've got a great save going with Newcastle, but with KK going today it makes me wanna go back to my Liverpool save to save them! If Hoffenheim is your club go for it!

    BTW have had a re-read through the thread, saw that Portsmouth had dropped like a stone early on it your save. Any sign of a white knight coming into save them???

    Yeah I really like Hoffenheim, but as you can see it wasnt the right time sadly.

    Regarding Pompey, following their relegation to the BSS in 2021/22, they spent a few seasons there, finally getting promoted in 2025/26. This was followed by yet another promotion the following season and they have spent the last 2 seasons in League 2.

    SRL88's Career - November 2029 - England

    World Cup Qualifying Play-Off's


    Without a doubt one of the greatest comebacks in football. We were woeful in the first leg and despite matching Serbia for efforts on goal we were never really in the game. They dominated posession and deserved their win. I honestly dont know what to say about the second leg except wow!!!! A brilliant performance somehow resulted in a 6-0 win as we qualified for the World Cup.

    Longstaff Quits England


    In what is quite possibly one of the biggest shocks in recent history, Steven Longstaff stepped down as the Manger of the England National Football Team today after guiding the nation to the 2030 FIFA World Cup. In one of the greatest comebacks in football history, England came back from a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Serbia and somehow pulled off an amazing 6-0 win to book their place in Italy next year.

    Following the game Longstaff described the moment as one of his greatest achievements in football, but a mere 24 hours later, having qualified for the World Cup, England find themselves without a Manager heading into the biggest tournament in world football. At a press conference yesterday in London, Steven Longstaff said "despite guiding my home nation to the World Cup next year, I have made my feelings known to The FA that I no longer wish to continue as the Manager of the England National Team". The FA have made their feelings known that they werent pleased with the teams failure to automatically qualify for the World Cup, but having qualified via the Play-Off's they were set allow Longstaff the World Cup to prove he was the man for the job.

    Longstaff added, "When I resigned as Manager of Liverpool Football Club at the end of last season I said that I wanted to solely focus on one job, but after receiving an offer from Galatasaray and after speaking to my family I realised that I wanted to step back into club management. Now, having qualifed for the World Cup and after facing immense pressure from the fans, the media and also The FA I feel that I am no longer able to continue in my role as England Manager. I feel that I have achieved my original target of qualifying for the World Cup, but that obviously wasnt enough. After acheiving what I have in the game during my managerial career I dont feel that I have anything to prove to anyone, but others clearly feel different. I now want to focus my full attention on the rest of the season in Turkey without any other distractions and I wish whoever my replacement is the best of luck".

    Following this statement, Longstaff abruptly left the room and left FA Headquaters for the last time as The FA once again start the process of finding a new Manager.

    Have just caught up on your thread again, 6 pages of thrilling reading since I last looked! Congratulations with Liverpool, hope they can continue what is now a tradition for them.

    Interesting move back to Turkey, at least you already have a feel for the footballing atmosphere there from previous experience. Completely agree with your Hoffenheim decision, I think uprooting your family again and moving could have detrimental effect and certainly put a strain on your marriage, not to mention moving kids from schools especially one country to another. You expect loyalty from players, why shouldn't they expect loyalty from you

    With regards England, you were quite right to speak your mind. Qualification is qualification after all whichever way you look at it. The FA don't deserve your managerial expertise and I feel they may come out with a statement in the near future regretting the way they treated such a bright young manager.

    Good luck with the rest of the season, I feel you can make GS a dominant force on the European scene. Looking forward to reading much more.

    SRL88's Career - November 2029 - Galatasaray SK

    Super Lig




    Another unbeaten month for us which see's us remain clear at the top of the table. We started with a frustrating draw away from home. I made numerous changes to accomodate for Eurupe and we werent quite at the races. A solid 2-0 home win followed before a very annoying 2-2 draw against bottom of the table Goztepe. We twice went in from against them only to be pegged back. A late penalty gave them a point. A very nice home win rounded off the month in fine fashion.

    Two fantastic win's in Europe see us qualify from the group with a game to spare. We put ourselves well and truely in pole position with a brilliant 4-1 win over Bayern. The decisive game which saw us qualify from the group was a brilliant 5-1 over Rangers.

    That took balls to step down from England as you did, but it was a good decision.

    A couple of tough job decisions there, but I think it was for the best. I don't think I could leave a club so soon either Still looking great with Galatasaray this season, hopefully the Champions League draw is kind to you!

    I think so. As soon as I qualified I got the message from The FA that they werent satisfied with having to go through the Play-Off's. Then I checked the fans view and it was similar. I thought screw this.

    Im hoping that Rangers do us a big favour and hold Bayern to a draw at Ibrox. Then if we win in Belgium we will top the group. If not, then I only want to draw Porto in the Knockout Round ha.

    Cheers for the comment fella . I really appreciate it.

    Default Announcement

    Hello Ladies & Gentleman

    Just to let you all know that tomorrow I am going on holiday for 2 weeks so I wont be able to continue this fantastic save until I get back. I am hoping that, depending on how much I play tonight that I might be able to get a couple more updates on here for you fine people to read. I get back home in the early hours of June 1st so it will be sometime from then on that I will let you know that I am back.

    I really hope that I can get a few updates on tonight, but if I dont then you know why. Heck, I might even be unfortunate enough to bump into TomTuck's ugly mug considering we are staying 10mins away from each other. Im sure I will know that guy if I saw him and vise versa.

    SRL88's Career - December 2029 - Galatasaray SK

    Super Lig




    We enter the winter break in a very comanding position. We managed to fight ourselves to a 3-3 draw against Bucaspor with 10 men which really pleased me. What followed though were two fantastic performances and results. In the two Istanbul Derbies we put in two brilliant displays. An amazing 7-0 win over Besiktas sent us into a big tie against Fenerbahce. Despite falling behind, we didnt allow our heads to drop. We came back to lead 2-1 before being pegged back. However, an injury time goal gave us a massive 3 points as we beat our biggest rivals 3-2.

    Thank you Rangers . We done our job in Belgium with a very assured display and a 2-0 win, but Rangers have done us a massive favour. With Bayern failing to win we have managed to top our group. This fantastic achievement has set up a tough, but we very winnable tie against Sampdoria in the First Knockout Round.

    That's just not on!

    ------------------

    Wow, you miss a little, you miss alot! Great end to your long stay at Liverpool - achieving what you set out to do must have been very satisfying.

    However, you did your best to knob it up with England, and I feel it was right for you to quit.

    Good luck with Galatasary, can't wait for the updates once you're back from your holibobs.

    Perfect? No, because of the draws but having got to this stage I dont see any reason why we cant remain unbeaten.

    Cheers mate. Surpassing Man Utd was a great achievement and I am delighted I done it. I just hope the new Manager continues where I left off.
    I couldnt have wished for a better start with Galatasaraty to be fair and I am glad I stepped down from the England job because the pressure I felt was high.

    You know you smiled slightly!!!

    Yeah reaching my target was very satisfying and I glad I left on a high. I do miss Chris Ord though.
    I nearly screwed things right up with England. I still put it down to the qualifty of the regens on the game because they are pretty crap.

    Yes I have posted....but I am not back off my holiday just yet, which means yes, I am using a computer abroad (but with the intention of checking my bank account - I couldnt resist temptation).

    I get home late tomorrow night so I will be getting back into the game from then on .

    Just agreed to sign these three on pre-contracts and they will join at the end of the season. They all class as home grown so that will help with the Turkish rules in the league.
