Rules of the Save

  • England is View Only until I land my first job.  I want my first job to be abroad.
  • I must attend all interviews when offered.
  • If I receive a realistic offer in relation to my current contract, then I have to move clubs.  Example, I am on £500 p/w and a club comes in for me offering £2,000 p/w, then I move, even if it is a downwards step.
  • Once I am on huge money at big clubs, money is less of an issue.
  • There are some clubs that are excluded from this rule as I will never, ever, manage them.  These clubs are:  Liverpool, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Bristol Rovers, MK Dons, Weymouth & Celtic.
  • Not a rule per se, but don't be surprised if I move clubs a lot, especially early on.

End of Season Review

Season 2023/24

East Fife

image.png.2fe41ae937e9a4763b4543bf3d782c6c.png 

Season Summary

We lost two of my first three games but then the new signings, after clearing out a lot of deadwood, settled in and gelled.  Our failure to win any of our last three games denied us a promotion playoff spot though considering we were bottom when I arrived, that is a minor detail.  We were already out of all of the domestic cups when I arrived.

From where you started, that's not a bad finish. And in the circumstances, I think you were wise to avoid the stress of the playoffs :D

Season Summary

We were far too good for this division and stormed to the league title and promotion to the third tier.  An excellent cup run in the league cup was the icing on the cake.

I'd sell Larios before he get injured again. Seems astonishing that some of those players are still there, 4 stars must be premier league standard

He has gone…as have thirty others for fees.  Including reserves, there was over sixty players at the club.  A lot of the big players wanted to leave for top flight football so I raised over £250m in player sales and have spent around £150m so far replacing them.
