Well, we suck :( Based on the squad comparisons we are barely mid table, so I guess this wasn't too unexpected. I'm not too bothered though, it just means we aren't in the Bundesliga straight away.

Huge congrats on Scotland - I called it (for only the second or third time...)! Austria seems an interesting prospect, breaking Leipzig should be fun! Here's hoping this is also a good league; certainly one I've not done a lot in and I'm sure a few more haven't experienced either.

An unbeaten month before we head into the winter break, but it's not a great look.

At least this looks positive.

Thanks mate, your optimism is definitely infectious amongst whichever squad I'm managing :D 

I think you mean Salzburg, Leipzig is the Red Bull entity in Germany :) Austria definitely looks like a bit of fun, I'm just excited to finally not overpay players like I had to in Scotland :lol:

According to the xG table we're meant to be 6th. This is a clear case of the players underachieving rather than me as manager doing a poor job. Or that's what I'll tell myself anyway.

The best we can hope for is to spoil the top teams promotion hopes at this stage, and we did a pretty good job against 1st, 2nd and 5th :D

A pretty poor end to the season, but I'm already looking ahead to the next one when I can start bringing players in.

Always getting the 2 RB sides mixed up when tired haha, looking good so far in Austria - although a little late as you put it.  Looking forwards to seeing this progress once more!

Yeah I think the first season from now on will always be a bit of a settler until I can bring in players.

I definitely agree, but it makes things more fun as the seasons progress I think.

Sadly, budget constraints meant we were at a huge disadvantage to sign players good enough for the first team. That being said, there's a chance that they can force their way into the side by performing from the bench.

We're predicted 3rd, but I have a feeling we're going to struggle again.

I was waiting for people to catch up before changing it just in case it was a spoiler, but now that I'm a season into Austria it's definitely time for a change :lol:

We were abysmal in our friendlies, but we win games against relegation contenders, and with Tirol going through a collapse it's suddenly close between the top 4.

We kinda fell apart in the middle of the month, but an important win over Wacker Innsbruck leaves us within a point of the top if we win our game in hand.

Promoting gets you more chances to win AFC Champions League, is there a dingo in your club logo?

It's a wolf I think, and I should just clarify that I'm in Austria, the nation in Europe next to Germany and Italy, and not Australia, the nation of kangaroos and increasingly terrible soccer :lol:

We've spent over a million pounds this window, but half of it is in instalments. In more positive news most of the additions are good enough for the first team :D

A busy preseason, and despite our additions we're predicted last by a long shot. All we need is 11th, so that's the aim.

We went from languishing around the bottom of the table for most of the season to qualifying for the Conference League :eek: An amazing turnaround for our first season back in the Austrian Bundesliga! What made it even better is that the Altach player who missed the penalty to send us through wanted to leave us at the start of the season. Revenge is sweet :D
