    Default danger_mouse's Journeyman Career!

    My Aim is to just play the game by LLM rules and see where the game takes me. I wont be setting any goals due to the fact i feel ill follow them rather than enjoying the reality of the game.


    Leagues Loaded:



    I will be adding more leagues as and when i want to.


    The Start:

    I have started Unemployed with Sunday League Rep. I went on holiday until i was offered a job.

    Boston United FC when i took was were sitting 14th but are predicted 2nd place. I have a wage budget of £3,000 p/w, and my current wage bill is £3,500 p/w, with £0 transfer funds.





    We have a decent size squad but are missing some important players. But i am finding it hard to find players to come in on a very tight budget, and with no teams interested in my deadwood.


    October 2011



    A good start my 1st month in charge, although i can see why the club is doing so poor with the lack of morale. And a disapointing end to a short cup run.

    Against Vauxhall and Worcester we were very poor, and didnt look like creating any chances nevermind scoring a goal.

    Altrincham, we played alot better and there were signs of a turnaroud, Altrincham were in the playoffs at the time.

    Workingham, again we played very well and totally out played them, and had a good croud at the game/

    FA Trophy 3rd Qual. Rnd, Harrogate Railway, a must win game and we won, more importantly Warren McBean scoring a Hattrick, thats 5 in the last 2.

    Enough for a tea party. I think it must be one of those jobs vacant at the beginning of the game, just like we've had a few people at the same Norwegian and Turkish clubs.

    Well what a bad month, the one and only plus out of 7 games was the FA Trophy 1st Rnd Rep win over Cambridge, the rest of the games were poor, very poor.

    Gainsborough
    , I wasn't expecting alot given our recent run, and the team didn't let me down.
    We were lucky against Harrogate, a last minute from Newsham gave us a much needed 3 points.
    On to the FA Trophy 2nd Rnd, again we were lucky and got a late equaliser, and the Replay isnt worth talking about.
    Histon and Blyth, both games we were under dogs for, but we out played them both for another 6 points.
    I was expecting us to ride our luck against FC Halifax, but it wasn't to be.

    Nuneaton and Hyde, Again we out played them both and to score sheets tell the story, 2 solid victories.
    A tough game again Eastwood, but only a late consolation goal for Newsham.
    Now to end the month with Gloucester, a team we should be beating but we were given a lifeline by Neil Mustoe in form of an Own Goal.

    So, Bishop's Stortford and Stalybridge, two good results for us an impressive 3-1 win.
    Didn't expect us to do much against Solihull Moors, Though another good attendance.
    Altrincham we really should have won the match, some players just were not up for it.
    And Vauxhall, as much as expected a good win for us.

    April/End Of Season Report 2012



    Well, not the way I wanted to end my 1st season, W1, D2, L2. I feel we should have beat Workington and Hinckley but one positive was the 2,127 fans (or kids for a quid) that turned up for our last home game of the season.

    Pre Season Update 2012/2013








    A mixed start to this season saw us win at home to Bristol Rovers, our parent club, but a poor loss to Stafford. FC United have been promoted to thats another tough opponent this year. The board have increased my wage budget despite us being over budget for most of last season and now being in debt.





    Alot of older players on high wages have left the club since the end of the season to reduce the wage bill, and i feel i have replaced them all with better players, but only time will tell.

    Dean Bouzanis: The ex Liverpool player joined after his contract expired and has taken over the No.1 shirt from verteran Paul Bastock.

    Nathan Fox: Released from Notts County and will mainly be used as a back-up LB.

    Joe Swindell: Released from Nottm Forest, Joe looks like he has the ability to step in from the bench and make the difference when needed. Joe is also on a youth contract.

    Willie Nicol: Another young forward signed for a free, Willie will start the season in the youth team to develop.

    David Fernandez: An experienced 36 y/o AMC who has been playing in the SPL for the last 9 years. May have to be re-trained to MC to fit into the team.

    Gareth Williams: I tryed to sign Gareth when i took over at Boston but he rejected me to join another club, he was the released and i couldn't say no to him.

    Arthur Motaung: The young South African DC has joined on loan for the season, but seem injury prone having already had 2 injuries.

    Ben Davisson: Another youngster joined on a free from Charlton, he will be may 1st choice LM.

    Toby Dipper and Greg Rutherford: 2 more young back-up players signed after a trial day.

    August 2012



    Gainsborough, Start of the season i didn't know what to expect, last seasons top scored McBean scored his 1st hattrick for the club and got injuried for a month.
    Nuneaton, A tough game but Pablo Counago stepped up and socred the winner late in the 2nd half.
    Solihull Moors, Disappointed with this match after 2 good games, didnt really look like scoring.
    FC Halifax, again not the best performance but we scrapped through.

    September 2012






    Workington, A good game with Counago netting a brace and a big attendance.
    Tamworth, Average performance, but another 3 points on the board.
    Chester, We were both level after 80mins, but we edged out 3-1 winners with 2 late goals.
    Alfreton, The only loss of the month and it was avoidable.
    Lowestoft, A great win, Lowestoft were 2nd at this time so it was nice to get an early victory.
    Altrincham, A Bore draw, but not a loss.
    Cambridge C, A win in the cup, lets see who we get next round.

    October 2012




    Guiseley, A fantastic, well dominated win, and 2 goals for our young DC Darcy.
    Bury Town, So after being 1-0 until late in the 2nd half we then just collapsed.
    FC United, Im glad we beat FC United, i think they are 1 of the stronger teams in the league.
    Corby, A very late penality saved use from another defeat.
    Bury Town, Twice in 1 month, and we still couldnt beat them, Im starting to think Bury are my bogey team.

    November 2012




    Eastwood, No win but not a loss either, a fantastic 20 yard screamer from Wilkinson in the dying minutes of the match.
    Harrogate, Well we smashed them, And another goal for youth player Willie Nicol.
    Blyth, Center back Darcy scored a great goal from just inside the box but a 2nd half goal from Blyth sank our 3 points.
    Barrow, A solid 1-0 away win against Barrow.




    So were still top just before the half way mark of the season, and were slowly creeping away from the bunch, but we really need to turn these draws into a win or 2. On another note, were drawn Bury Town in the cup AGAIN!! Not looking forward to it.

    December 2012



    Lowestoft, A nice win in the cup and we've qualified for the FA Trophy 1st Round.
    Hyde, Well we were 3-0 up at half time, for them to pull it back to 3-3 in the 2nd half, but a couple of last minute goals sorted us out.
    Bury Town, Well our 3rd time against Bury and we havn't won once, i didnt expect anything from it and i was right, another loss, Bury are now my most hated team in the league.
    Southport, And poor match, Southport were bottom and we should of taught them a lesson, but it was quite the opposite.
    Stalybridge, A much needed win to keep us ahead of the pack.
    Gainsborough, Again we should have won this but our forwards are miss firing of late.




    So even after afew bad results we are still 8 points clear of the chasing teams. But we do have afew injuries now, so i will be looking at strengthening afew positions in January.

    Sorry about the screenie i took the wrong one.

    Nuneaton, Poor game, didn't look like scoring.
    Solihull Moors, Again didnt look like scoring but we still havn't lost this month.
    Workington, This time we did score but we also looked weak at the back, should have claimed all 3 points.
    Tamworth, Much better game but the score line could have been more, all in all a good unbeaten month.





    Still top and still 8 points clear, need to turn the draws into wins though.

    Transfers:




    Just 4 brought in, 3 defenders and 1 winger, with Kozluk and Chilvers we have alot of experiance which should carry us to the title, Bryne is rated at having the potential to become a League 2 quality right back, and Gittings has come in to cover Davisson's 2 month injury on the left wing.

    Again took the wrong screenshot.

    Chester, 2-1 win, a good start to the month.
    FC Halifax, A solid away performance against a team pushing for promotion.
    Alfreton, Again another win, but nothing flattering.
    Lowestoft, This on the other hand was flattering, great win against a strong Lowestoft.
    Altrincham, A home draw, slightly disappionted win didn't take all 3 points but another seemless month.



    Again still 8 points clear as the season draws to an end, let hope we can keep a nice healthy distance between us and the rest of the pack.

    So, being linked with the Mansfield job in my opinion is realistic, Mansfield isn't to far from Boston and i would class them as local rivals.

    Onto the West Ham job, way to unrealistic, i would never be in the running for it and if it did come alone, i would turn it down.

    Bouzanis has a good point, my contract is due to expire at the end of this season and i have not been offered a new one, last season they offered me a contract on the 8th of May, i can understand why it was left so late, but this season it looks like were going to win promotion and still i havn't been offered a contract. Im not to sure how long im going to wait for 1 before i make my mind up whether or not to stay at Boston, which it sad because i would like to stay but im not begging for a contract.

    Its always nice to know im wanted somewhere. Stirling were bottom of League two when this offer was made, and i wasn't interested at all.

    March 2013



    Guiseley, Another draw and a lucky one at that, were getting good at last minute goals...Just call us Man Utd.
    Corby, Very poor, Corby are fighting relagation so we kind of messed up this one.
    FC United, With FC United chasing us this was a must win, and we did win. A very good goal from Williams set us off nicely. And a season high att.
    Bury Town, Again a must win with Bury sitting 2nd at the start of this match, and weve finally done it weve beaten Bury Town. Feels like weve won the league already.
    Eastwood, Slightly upset about this result, after 2 very good wins we slipped up again here.



    So still going strong, now 7 points clear but i think it will be enough to win us the league.

    April & May / End of Season 2013




    Harrogate, A good start to the month, and a solid 2-0 win.
    Blyth, Great game for Counago scoring 4 goals, but poor defensive display.
    Barrow, Again good going forward but sloppy at the back.
    Southport, We got our own back on Southport, they beat us away earlier in the season.
    Hyde, A 1-0 win was good enough in my eyes.
    Stalybridge, A win is a win, its 3 points, and it also means weve done it...weve won the league



    So there it is, Boston United have won the BSN, heres just afew things to look over.

    League Graph

    Transfers

    Finances

    Key Players:

    GK:

    Dean Bouzanis: What a guy to have between the posts, as soon as my scouts found him last season i knew he would take us to glory, so i decided not to renew last seasons gk and sign this guy, and i was right to.

    DC:

    Kiran Darcy: Signed Darcy last season as a back-up for this season, he stepped up and slotted in due to an injury and made himselfs the 1st defender on the team sheet every single game, stats dont do this guy justice, there is no corner cheat or anything being used at all, Darcy just likes scoring.

    MC:

    David Fernandez:My veteran midfielder, brought to the club as first choice but played more of a rotation due to injuries and fitness, but he was instrumental to getting vital victories.

    ST:

    Pablo Counage: Most will remember Pablo from his days at Ispwich, now banging them in at Boston, 26 league goals and top league scorer. Could not have done it without him.

    To be honest i didn't realise we were top for so long, it always seemed like we had a battle on our hands and it was always a fight to stay where we were, kind of makes it feel like it was a much earned promotion.

    Boston offer me a new contract on the 4th of May.



    Crewe sacked Simpson on the 12th of May and i declare my interest.



    15th of May i get the job offer, Its a tough decision because ive grown fond of Boston and ive had a very good season, but i dont think these any future for me at Boston, the set-up there isn't the best and i think there punching above there weight. Whereas Crewe have a good set-up and i feel Crewe should not be playing at BSP level.

    What should i do?

    If you think you can't go any further with Boston I'd go with Crewe.

    I would go to Crewe personally. Good youth set-up so you should have some decent players. Need to get that wage budget down though.

    Crewe Alexandra 2013/2014 Pre-Season Update


    Well Crewe came in for me at the very end of season 12/13 after i had won the league with Boston, it wasn't to much of a hard decision for me to leave Boston as they had poor facilities and no good youth prospects coming through. Whereas Crewe have Top training facilities and an Average youth facilities, and on top of that a hand full of exciting prospects.

    The club did have a loan of £28k p/m but that has now ended. Crewe are in debt of around £1.5m and are now playing football in the Blue Square Bet Premier and finished 14th last season, this season the media have predicted us to finish 7th, and the club is worth around £1.4m.




    1st Team:



    A nice big squad but were over our budget and were £1m+ in debt, alot of players wont even enter contracts talks with me, so im expecting alot to leave on frees and my using the youth of the club to help us through the tough times.

    U18's:



    As you can see i have a hand full of usful youth players i can call upon as back-up/rotation players for our ever departing 1st team.

    Key Players:

    GK:

    Vitalijs Artjomenko

    DC:

    Tobias Ĝrtoft

    MC:

    Jonas Hebo Rasmussen

    ST:

    Jason Oswell


    Youth Prospects:

    Curtis Jackson 4*
    Darren Webb 5*
    Gregg Jeffs 4 1/2*
    Halldór Ŝorsteinsson 4 1/2*
    Lee Trenbath 5*
    Reece Waters 4 1/2*
    Aaron O'Hanlon 4 1/2*
    Will Burt 4*

    What a bad decision. You really shouldn't have gone to Crewe. I can't see a single person that said go to Crewe. ;)

    Good luck with them

    August 2013





    Gateshead
    , A good start at my new job, a good 1-0 away win.
    Dover, Another game another win, and a nice attendance.
    Kettering, Another away win and a quality goad from Powell.
    AFC Telford, Disappointed with this draw with how the last 3 games went, but im still unbeaten and look at the attendance, awesome.
    Woking, Back to winning ways, and that 4 in 5 for left winger Powell.





    So an unbeaten start to the season, but only 3rd place, i can tell this is going to be a tough season. And its always nice to see Boston doing well at this level.





    The finances, were £1.2m in debt and were at a loss for last month, if things dont start to change i can see my having to sell my key players to balance the books.

    September & October 2013



    Histon
    , Not happy with our 1st loss, were not going to score without creating any chances.
    Forest Green, A bore draw, we just couldn't find the net for a 2nd time.
    Lincoln, Again bore draw, we need another forward who can score.
    Newport County, Finally we scored and won the match, Oswell banging in 2.
    Boston Utd, So were away to my former club, but there was not alot else to talk about, Another bore draw.
    Kidderminster, Things are looking better, right winger Banton slotting 1 home.
    Aldershot, Another good win here.
    York, A 2-0 win thats 3 on the bounce now.
    Braintree, We were unluckly with this one, a late Braintree goal denied us a 4th win in a row.
    Boreham Wood, Weve seemed to fall into our old ways, not creating any chances at all.
    Cambridge, Another poor draw.




    So were 3rd after 3 months in, but we really need to be scoring more goals to convert those draws into wins and we can easily win promotion this season.

    November-February 2013/2014




    Ok so I havn't had alot of time to pop on here on update my career thread lately but that doesn't mean I havn't been playing still.

    As you can see we went on a nice run of wins in November, but slightly slipped but abit in December. The end of January couldn't come soon enough with us losing to Macclesfield in the FA Trophy 2nd Round, then losing to easier games in the league after that.




    The league as it stand now, were 2nd 5 points been Fleetwood, and I do have to play them rather soon. Though we've still got alot of work to do if we want to win automatic promotion this season..otherwise its a dreaded play-offs.

    Hopefully more to follow later.

    March & May / End of Season 2013/2014


    Media Prediction - 6th
    Actual Position - 1st - Graph
    Finances - Overall

    League:- March & May Fixtures

    Well from the start i was just happy to be at a club lke Crewe, but when the end of last season came i realised the task i had taken on. With the club in a growing debt and a wage bill that needed reducing and alot of key players were not interested in signing a new contract thing quickly went from good to bad.

    I had to bite the bullet and release most quality players just to reduce to wage bill and i had to rely on the clubs youth players, I played most of the season with a 16 y/o at LB, half a season with a 16 y/o at DMC, and an 18 & 19 y/o upfront. But despite their lack of 1st team experience they all stepped up to the mark and help the club through the season.

    We spent most of this season in 2nd place but the last few games where 1st place Fleetwood went on an appalling run in the last month which saw us sneak in 1st place. I saw shocked because i had all but surrendered the title chase and was gearing up for a fight in the play-offs.

    Fleetwood's Results
