Wait, only 3 left? And Lazewski left the unrelegatable league?

EPIC

Yep and i have to say i'm surprised Antoine hasn't gone yet, considering the difference in teams from Erik and Lawrence.

I seem to like managing in Italy. Good season and abit with Gubbio, getting them promoted to Serie B, and then moving to Serie A and keeping Brescia in the league. Finally finding my feet.

Some good news for Steven soon ;)

End of Season 2044/45

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - So Lyon weren't patient with Erik at all after his 2nd season he was sacked. Lyon finished 2nd in the league, were Champions Trophy runners up, Coupe De La Ligue Semi-finalists and Champions League Quarter Finalists. Where next for Erik?

Antoine Clemont - Took over at Gateshead and took them into 12th place in the league, they were predicted 18th, so pretty good overall.

Lawrence Lazewski - Into his first managerial job and only got 11 games of the Closing Stage. Morelia finished in 16th place, lucky for him only 1 team gets relegated each season.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Similar to his first change with Notts County, sacked after just 6 months in the job. Looking for a new job, probably not with Notts County yet.

Zachary Eldinho - Things didn't go too well for Brage who ended up getting relegated to the First Division North. Things are looking better so far this season and they could go straight back up.

Christopher Hatton - Not too bad overall for Bradford, finishing in 9th place in the league and reaching the Johnstones Paint Trophy quarter finals.

Junior - Manager Stats - Things didn't go well for York City as Junior took over. They found themselves finishing 23rd, getting relegated.

Steven Kemp - What a season for Steven and Brescia, avoiding relegation last season, getting into Europe the next. They finished 5th in the league and won the Italian Cup. Steven was named Manager of the Year.

Aboubakari Mensah - Joined Bristol Rovers in the league below. He didn't actually manage any games as they had already been promoted.

Bambang Pinheiro - Sacked by Lorient and is now looking for a new job.

Chris Small- Sacked by Rangers and is looking for a new job.

I had a feeling that the French would give Backermann a short leash. If 2nd place and all those other results weren't enough, then they can stuff it up their stinky little baguette. (Apologies to those of you of the French persuasion, but Backermann has been disrespected...)

Erik Backermann has gone to a new country, he's joining Steven Kemp in Italy and has taken over at Genoa.

Genoa are up there with the best at the moment, but haven't won Serie A for 6 seasons, finishign 2nd and 3rd mainly, they are predicted 2nd, but currently 9th.

Edit: Genoa have only gone and drawn Dortmund in the Champions League First Knockout Round

Lawrence Lazewski sacked by Morelia after a 14th place finish in the Opening Stage.

Oh, there's always the karma of leaving a great situation, moving right to what seems like a great situation and being shown the door, and then facing off against that great situation. If nothing else, Backermann's passport's going to have a stamp for everyone in the EU.

Cheers for that :thup:, i will try to post it after each season update, providing someone gets relegated.

Have added it to the 2nd post(where it's been made into a table:S) so if i forget, i can add them on there.

Looks good in the table :thup:

Not something i planned to do, just happened when i copied and pasted.

Meanwhile, El Ticuito takes Cowdenbeath role, currently 7th in the Scottish Championship.

Junior and Christopher Hatton are both sacked.

Chris Small has taken over at Southend in League 1, who already look likely to be promoted.

You weren't joking about Kemp having a good year. Lets just hope I don't suffer some sort of European hangover

It was quite surprising, specially as his stats aren't that good overall for a manager, but seem to be working, done well again this season.

End of Season 2045/56

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - Despite the rumours of him being sacked, he took Genoa into 2nd place in Serie A, reached the Semi Finals of the Italian Cup and his old team Dortmund knocked them out of Europe.

Antoine Clemont - A pretty average season for Gateshead, finishing in 15th place and knocked out in first round of all cups.

Lawrence Lazewski - Sacked by Morelia and is now looking for his 2nd managerial role.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Moved to Scotland and finished in 6th place with Cowdenbeath.

Zachary Eldinho - Left Brage to suffer and joined GIF Sundsvall who are currently 4th in the league.

Christopher Hatton - Sacked by Bradford and is now looking for a new job.

Junior - Manager Stats - Sacked by York and is looking for a new club.

Steven Kemp - Fantastic season again, finishing in 6th place and back into Europe. Brescia reached the first knockout round this season, they were Italian Super Cup runners up and Steven was Manager of the Year again.

Aboubakari Mensah - A pretty good season, finishing in 7th place, just missing out on the Play-offs.

Bambang Pinheiro - Still looking for a new club.

Chris Small - Took over at Southend who were already promoted, will have to see if he can keep them up next season.

Okay, Backermann would like to go back to Germany now, where you don't get sacked after 8 GAMES. Bunch of quick-triggered, hot-headed, pasta-slurping olive-rapers....(apologies to any Italians, I'm talking about SOMEONE ELSE...)

He has a new club now, it's the end of season, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow :p all i'll say is, it's not in Germany and it's a new country.

End of Season 2046/47

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - Sacked by Genoa earlier in the season and finally found a new club at the end of the season. He's joining Sevilla, who finished in 5th place.

Antoine Clemont - Not a great season, finishing in 20th place with Gateshead. He was sacked at the end of the season.

Lawrence Lazewski - Still looking for a new club.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Decided to leave Cowdenbeath and moved back to England to take over at Reading, who finished in 14th place in the Championship.

Zachary Eldinho - Still looking for a new club

Christopher Hatton - Took over at Bolton in League Two and finished in 10th place.

Junior - Manager Stats - Still looking for a new club.

Steven Kemp - Not quite as good as the last 2 seasons, finishing in 11th place, maybe due to Europe as well.

Aboubakari Mensah - A good season, the only downside is no promotion. They lost on the last day of the season meaning they finished 3rd and then lost in the play-offs. Was named manager of the year.

Bambang Pinheiro - Still looking for a new club.

Chris Small - Not a great season, finishing in 19th place, but they were predicted 23rd, so it's still pretty good.

Antoine Clemont has taken over at newly crowned Scottish League One Champions, Forfar. Next season could be interesting for him.

Well, Backermann's sure as shooting not going back to Lyonnais, that's for sure! How about Motherwell, maybe he needs to get off the continent for a break. (And this is where he gets relegated, I'm sure...)

Well well well... it has come to this. Backermann has left his club, Lazewski is still unemployed and Antoine seems to be getting relegated :/

Who'll win if those 2 retire before Antoine relegates? El Mantis? :D

If those 2 retired and Antoine was relegated, then the top 3 would be Backermann, Lazewski and El Mantis.

Then it'd have to be decided who would win by some other reasoning, El Mantis would be 3rd because he never got into management properly.

Wow, were things that bad there, or is he not a fan of Scotch and haggis?

Not really sure, maybe they already had a manager lined up or something, i should have checked to make sure before adding him.

Meanwhile, El Ticuito is sacked by Everton, because the players had lost confidence in him.

Leyton Orient have sacked Zachary Eldinho due to league position. Is now the manager at Port Vale in League 2.

Erik Backermann is the new manager of Hearts, currently in 11th place in the new year.

End of Season 2048/49

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - Erik stayed in Scotland to take over Hearts who were struggling. They finished in 7th place in the league and were Scottish League Cup runners up.

Antoine Clemont - Always a worry when taking over a newly promoted club. They struggled all season and ended up in the relegation play-offs, losing in the semi-final. Lasted 34 years, so not bad really.

Lawrence Lazewski - Still looking for a new club.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Sacked as manager of Everton and is looking for a new club.

Zachary Eldinho - Sacked by Leyton Orient, but took over at Port Vale, who finshed 17th in League Two.

Christopher Hatton - Was looking likely to get into the play-offs with Exeter, but was sacked with a few games remaining.

Junior - Manager Stats - Shocking from Lyon as they sack Junior despite reaching the Champions League final (which they lost) and winning the French Champions Trophy. I think he went because of the 5th place league finish.

Steven Kemp - Wasn't looking too good for Brescia, but they eventually finished in 14th place. They somehow got into Europe and were knocked out in the 2nd knockout round.

Aboubakari Mensah - Peterborough were relegated last season and Mensah couldn't quite get them back up, finishing in 9th place.

Bambang Pinheiro - Not too bad, finishing in 3rd place and reaching the Capital One Cup and FA Cup semi-finals.

Chris Small - Pretty good season with Dundee, finishing in 4th place and winning the Scottish Cup. Named Scottish Players' and Scottish Writers' Manager of the Year.

Wow, it was Lyon Junior won the champs league with as a player right? shame he couldnt do the same as manager and ended up sacked to, no confidence in a former star lol

He won it twice with Real Madrid and once with Chelsea. With Lyon he only ever won the French Cup :p

Lyon have never won the Champions League, in the final twice, lost to Arsenal twice.
