    Default Back to Business and after football success!


    A New Start!

    I am back and ready to crack back into another journeyman save. After my last thread that was a fairly successful thread I have decided to try and acheive the same amount of success that I achieved with the clubs in that save. I am predominately aiming to start of in Europe and work my way up the football ladder and one day become the best manager in the world. I have started the career on the 7th of July 2012 with a large number of leagues added which i may remove or add to as the game progresses. I also wish to try and develop as many youngsters through my career and aim to predominantly rely on my scouts to bring in the best players available to me.

Ryan Duckett is thought to be delighted to have been chosen as the man to take this club forward and looks eager to achieve bigger and better things with this club.

    So here it is, the first stop in my career is at Danish Second Division West Outfit, Thisted FC. I have been predicted to finish in 6th position in the league so anything of 6th position or higher will suit me and then in the season's ahead we can push on and aim for promotion.

    Aims + Expectations -

    My aim is solely to concentrate on the league for now and to assemble a side mixed between experience and youth that in a few years time will be able to challenge with some of the best sides in this division and gain promotion to a higher position. A cup run would be a nice bonus but I wouldn't be to dissatisfied if we took an early exit.



    Squad

    Squad

    The squad is average with some players that stand out. Their was also a few good players in the youth side that I have brought into the first team to nuture their career. I felt that with a few signings and the mixture of experience and youth then we could be a force to challenge for promotion but some new signings will be required.

    Pre-Season came and went in a flash. 3 games was played before I arrived which ended twice in defeat and one draw. I took over on the 5th of July and we had 2 fantastic 4-0 victories over division one teams before a valiant defeat at the hands of Esbjerg fB. A 1-1 all draw against Lemvig came next before we rounded off pre-season with a 7-1 thumping of are under 19's. Pre-season went well and this gives me a bit of confidents going into the first game of the season against Aarhus Fremad at Home.

    2011 Mid-Season Review



    Thisted Fodbold Club - Danish Second Divison West

    1st


    Danish Second Division West



    Past Positions I Fixtures - Been a fantastic start to the season, we've been almost faultless so far winning 11 out of our 15 games. We have scored in every game we have played so we know that we can outscore any opponent so hopefully we can push on in the second half of the season and achieve promotion in my first season in charge of the club.

    2011/2012 Season Review



    Thisted Fodbold Club - Danish Second Division West

    1st


    Danish Second Division West


    Standings I Past Positions I Fixtures 1 I Fixtures 2 I Promotion Play-Off Fixtures - A fantastic first season in charge of the club. We started the campaign very good but started to fall away mid-way through as we lost top spot to Aarhus Fremad but with a good couple of results towards the end of the year we took it down to a nail bitting final day of the season where we needed to win and see them drop points in order to win the League. It looked all over as they was 3-0 up at HT but a superb fight back saw the game end 4-4 and saw us lift the title. We then had the business of the Play-Off final. We lost the first leg 1-0 but a header from Pdersen and then youngster Besaic scoring saw us gain promotion at the first time of asking.

    Danish Cup

    Fixtures - Got knocked out of the competition very early to my dissapointment but league is more important.

    Players

    Squad I Transfers

    Daniel Kristensen - Player of the Season says it all. Been fantastic all year in midfield and has made this side tick.

    Sead Gavranovic - Fantastic aswell all year and the clubs top goalscorer. Had a dip in form mid-way through the year but scored some vital goals nonetheless.

    2012/2013 Season Review



    Thisted Fodbold Club - Danish First Division

    7th


    Danish First Division


    Standings I Past Positions I Fixtures 1 I Fixtures 2 - A very inconsistent season based on results but 7th place in our first year in this division is good with me. We had some very patchy spells throughout the year but we was in the promotion race towards the end but a few bad results saw us drop from 4th to 7th in what was a very close division. A mixture of Sead Gavranovic getting injured long term and some players not stepping up to the plate has meant we finished 7th but this gives us a stepping stone to push on next season to try and gain promotion to the Superliga. We had a little cup run before we was knocked out of Pens to the best team in Denmark.

    Danish Cup

    Fixtures - A little cup run saw us reach the 3rd round where we met the best team in Denmark before being eliminated in a cruel shoot-out.

    Players

    Squad I Transfers

    Sead Gavranovic - Last years top scorer again came up with some crucial goals but only played 20 games after picking up a injury mid-season.

    Martin Neilsen - Very good player on the left side of the midfield chipping in with some very cruicla goals in important matches.

    2013/2014 Season Review



    Thisted Fodbold Club - Danish First Division

    3rd


    Danish First Division


    Standings I Past Positions I Fixtures 1 I Fixtures 2 - A very good season but a shame we couldn't achieve promotion, however 3rd place is still a very good final position. Following on from last year again we had a few patchy spells during the year but overall we was very good throughout. We took the promotion race down to the to the final couple of weeks with Viborg, but Lyngby ran away winning the title comfortably. Peter Bechmann was the clubs and the leagues Top Goalscorer bagging 24 goals in 33 games during the campaign. Hopefully next season we can take that one step and achieve promotion to the Superliga, but I know we need to sign some better players in order to take this final step.

    Danish Cup

    Fixtures - We got the the 3rd Round of the cup but a very disappointing 1nil defeat to Blokhus meant we took another early exit from the competition.

    Players

    Squad I Transfers

    Peter Bechmann - Peter has been superb all season, he can play in almost all positions on the football pitch and I played him mainly up front and it showed as he bagged 26 goals overall.

    Tommy Markussen - Tommy has again been superb all year. Played in defence all season and scored some goals from corners and set pieces. Got a pretty lengthy injury mid-season but came back and performed well again.

    DUCKETT LEAVES THISTED FODBOLD CLUB AFTER 3 YEARS


    I have decided to resign from the club as I feel the club are now in the division that best suits the team and feel I cannot take this club any further. I have had a good 3 years at the club gaining promotion and then 2 solid seasons in the First Division and have gained good experience and reputation to get me a higher level job. I left the club in the current position:
