IbrahimAliMaher Posted May 1, 2020 Share Posted May 1, 2020 Not wanting to brag or anything, but atm I'm getting regular interview offers from PL clubs which I don't think I really deserve. My career highlights so far have included: Started out at relegation threatened Crawley Town in league two Comfortably survived in season one Play-off final in season two Promoted via 2nd spot in season 3 Narrowly missed out on automatic promotion to Championship in season 4, lost in play-off SF Took Crawley to joint top of league one in November, poached by Championship Bristol City Met aim of top half finish in first season in Bristol, 5th round of FA Cup Second season I'm pushing towards the play-offs (8th currently) with a board aim of top half, media predicted 10th Whilst I overachieved massively with Crawley, I don't feel I've really pulled up any trees in just over a year in the Championship so far. I've picked up a few good results but struggled for consistency, and made a few cracking signings off a very limited transfer budget. First Newcastle offered me an interview, then Wolves. Whilst both are good clubs they've both had recent issues with failing PL FFP (didn't think this was possible!) and only offered about £10m transfer budget. I asked for a bit more which cost me both jobs apparently. Then mid-table Everton with 'rich' finances offered me an interview, again didn't want to give me any money to spend so I missed out. Bournemouth were next, they didn't want to upgrade training facilities so I walked away. Most recently Huddersfield who got won the Champo last season came calling, they've offered a 1.5 year deal with a £2m(!) budget. I don't really want to go as I'm building a good young squad at Bristol and I think I can make them a bigger club than Udders or Bournemouth given the potential catchment area, so I've asked the chairman to offer me a new deal. Seems a bit unrealistic given how hard it is for LLM to get PL jobs that I'd have all these clubs chasing after me when I haven't even got a trophy against my name. Is this normal?!
