Chris Small will take over Stockport, see if i can do any better than Hatton ;)

It's a great stepping stone!! Can't have done too badly if a league one club came and plucked me out from the conference!! ;)

Surprised, but also pleased, to see that Pinheiro is finding his feet as a manager despite his not-so-great attributes!

Would he be allowed to have an international job alongside his club job? Quite fancy the idea of him managing Australia Under-23s to Olympic glory!

Possibly, i'm not quite sure how it works, i can test it out and see what happens.

Looks like i can't actually add anyone to National sides.

Erik Bäckermann - Great season for Erik, winning his 2nd Bundesliga title with Dortmund. They only reached the 2nd round of the German Cup and Quarter Finals of the Europa League. Has been inducted into the German Hall of Fame in 10th place. Was named Manager of the Year. Failed to get his Continental Pro Licence.

License...is hard. (Not that it's holding him back from winning the Bundesliga.) Could have done a little better in the German Cup, though.

So Steven Kemp has got himself the Catania job.

And for some reason El Ticuito left Stade Brestois straight away and someone else took over.

Looking at Jobs for El Ticuito, there isn't too much going at the moment, FC Dordrecht, recently relegated to Jupiler League is a possibility. Most others are Serie C, Vanarama North and South and the lowest swedish leagues or Gretna in scotland.

:confused: bizarre. Wouldn't mind Dordrecht. Or just see where he ends up. So long as he's going to be a manager rather than HOYD I don't mind where he goes.

I'll keep going for a while and see. He should be a manager as i changed his manager stats to 20 and head of youth to 15

:) Hopefully he can build on their playoff disappointment from last season.

He'll need a very good season, they were bottom when he took over.

Had the first sacking of the season, Steven Kemp has been sacked by Catania.

Edit: 2nd Sacking is Chris Small at Stockport, he is now manager at Queen of the South.

Edit2: We have another sacking, this time it's Aboubakari Mensah at QPR.

End of Season 2040/41

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - Erik started the season with a German Super Cup win and then finished the season in 3rd place. It looks like Dortmund were kicked out of the Champions League, maybe a money thing. Is studying for his Pro Licence again.

Antoine Clemont - Not too good overall, he could only finish 17th in the league with Pescara. They survived relegation, but Antoine didn't survive the sack.

Junior - Manager Stats - Things didn't go too well at Exeter and he moved onto Cardiff in the Championship and they finished in 15th place and reached the FA Cup 6th round.

Lawrence Lazewski - Orlando City finished 2nd in the overall table but lost out in the Play-offs once again.

Bambang Pinheiro - Things started off ok, but took a turn for the worse and won just 8 games all season. Malaga ended up in 19th place, getting relegated. Sacked at the end of the season.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Not the best start to his managerial career. He took over struggling Notts County and then they still ended up at the bottom of league 1, relegated.

Zachary Eldinho - Zachary struggled once again, Halmstad finished 14th in the league and won in the relegation play-off. He kept his job this time and Halmstad are currently 13th.

Christopher Hatton - Seemed to be going well at the start of the season, but ended up getting sacked after numerous bad results. Studying for Continental B Licence.

Steven Kemp - Things didn't go well for Steven who spent just 5 month with Catania before being sacked.

Aboubakari Mensah - Sacked as QPR manager after 6 months, then moved to Norwich who finished 16th in the Championship.

Chris Small - Bad start with Stockport ended in a sacking and then took over at Queen of the South in Scotland where they finished last and were relegated.

Most sack award must go to Antoine, he simply can't survive a season without getting sacked!

We'll see, as he's taken the Piacenza job, currently in Serie A.

Only been sacked 3 times, he left Huddersfield and Arsenal to join other clubs. He is actually at the top of the sacked leaderboard though, most others have 2.

If Bambang Pinheiro , Steven Kemp and Christopher Hatton want to pick a new club, these are currently available.

Remember I can't add them to national sides.

Also you don't have to, just offering them up.

I'm still completely ok staying in the United States and managing Orlando City. Maybe I can both avoid relegation and the sack for my career.

I feel like we'll see a fight of you and Erik Backermann until one of you retires from staff at age 75 or so lol

Also, @Junior's manager-Sorry mate, but I think the two of us should just fight for third, those two are just so lucky with their clubs :/

They will one day, decades in the future, bury Backermann at midfield of Westfalenstadion.

Zachary Eldinho sacked as Halmstad manager.

Chris Small sacked by Queen of the South, takes over at Maidstone in League 2.

Christopher Hatton takes Hartlepool job. Currently League One.

Junior sacked by Cardiff

El Ticuito was most likely going to be sacked by Notts County, instead he leaves and joins Cardiff instead.

I Lupi in Serie A? Woot woot

I realised i made a mistake, they were relegated form Serie A, when you took over, so Serie B this season, just so you know when the end of season update is done.

I knew it! It was just too strange, because the way I saw it was that they actually survived in Serie A but got a new manager.

Relegated Staff

Wait a minute, isn't Dortmund a big club (they've got the biggest stadium in Germany and the highest average attendance in the world. (I mean, back in 2015...)

He also won the German Cup as well this season and was named Manager of the Year.

Nice, but I'd love a Champions Cup...

Still studying for his Pro Licence.

Some people just aren't cut out for higher education (and looking at his coaching stats, I'm amazed he's gotten as far as he has on guts and sheer determination...)

End of Season 2042/43

Staff

Erik Bäckermann - Not bad again, starting the season off with a Super Cup win. Unfortunately it was 3rd place in the league and the semi-finals in the German Cup and Europa League. Still Studying for his Pro Licence.

Antoine Clemont - Took over at Wolves who finished 5th in the league. Unfortunately they were battered 5-0 in the play-offs by Lincoln. One upside is that he won 2 games in the Johnstones Paint Trophy, which happened to be the North Final 2nd leg and the Final.

Junior - Manager Stats - Moved to Rotherham and just couldn't get them away from 24th place in the league. It's been a while but he has been relegated.

Lawrence Lazewski - Disappointing season for Orlando City, they finished 19th in the overall table. Currently doing better this season in 7th place, but are top of the Eastern Conference.

Relegated Staff

El Ticuito - Not a great season, but they were predicted 22nd place, so 17th isn't too bad. El Ticuito has been linked with various jobs, but no offers.

Zachary Eldinho - It was another relegation play-off for Zachary, and he got Gefle through it. This season they are doing a bit better, currently 11th.

Christopher Hatton - Left Hartlepool who survived in League One for Millwall, who went down to League 2 with Junior and Rotherham.

Steven Kemp - A good season for Steven, who took Gubbio into the Play-offs and beat his old side AlbinoLeffe in the final, promotion to Serie B.

Aboubakari Mensah - Was sacked as manager of Norwich after a poor season, they finished 17th in the end. Looking for a new job.

Bambang Pinheiro - Decided to leave Evian and move up the table a little to Lille, who finished just outside the European places in 8th.

Chris Small - Not too bad for Maidstones first season in league one, finishing in 14th place.

Some pretty big news just after the season ends.

Erik Backermann has left Dortmund!!! He has taken over at Lyon in France, where Frank Lampard has just retired.

But...I ...er, he doesn't speak French! And kind of a less-than-lateral move there (although what's he making in salary now?)

Erik Bäckermann - Not bad again, starting the season off with a Super Cup win. Unfortunately it was 3rd place in the league and the semi-finals in the German Cup and Europa League. Still Studying for his Pro Licence.

So why isn't Dortmund playing in Champions (since they won the Bundesliga last season)- financial whoopsies?

And that Pro License thing's starting to become an academic joke for Backerman, it doesn't appear he'll ever clinch the top license.

(And I still can't believe he'd leave Germany, the Bundesliga, and the greatest fans in Europe for..France.) (Guess I'll have to Wikipedia Olympique Lyonnais, which sounds like a sandwich spread...)

He's only gone up to £40k p/w so not much more. I think both team have the same Reputation, Dortmund were financially better though.

As for the Europa League thing, it was getting knocked out in the Champions League groups nearly every time.

Lyon have got through the Champions League groups most seasons and haven't won the league in nearly 10 years. Hopefully Erik can change that.

Will be interesting to see if Lyon end up playing Dortmund in the Champions League or Europa League (if they both get knocked out of the groups.)

That's not good, should have stayed in the closed league system of the US. Hopefully I can win some silverware with Morelia at least.

They were quite low in the table, but i think he's doing quite well with them since joining.
