  1. 1 June 2022 Incredible Effort Dear Diary, The boys have done incredible this campaign.. We lost key players in the summer as we did not have European football. The boys who stayed, together with a couple of new signings, did incredible to finish second behind Liverpool. Yes, it is disappointing that we lost out on goal difference but we were never the favourites for the title. We were not even tipped to be one of the contenders for champions league football. We will focus on the positives and go again next campaign! We weren't too impressive in the cup competitions though. The squad players did their best but fell to a narrow 0-1 defeat in the Carabao Cup 4th round against Man City. We were far from our best in the FA Cup 5th round and the boys were eliminated after a disappointing 0-3 defeat against Newcastle. The heroes who kept pace with the title winners all the way \o/ New contract, new vision.. let's go!
  2. 14 March 2022 Good Start Dear Diary, The lads have done so well in this campaign thus far.. To my pleasant surprise, we are 2nd with 8 games to go in my 1st season at the club The boys have already over-achieved by quite a bit as we were only expected to finish in the Europa League places. Even though it looks like we have a decent chance of winning the title, Liverpool are the favourites as they are destroying teams in one-sided wins while we are scraping wins by one-goal margins. They have looked far more convincing than us. As for our January transfer businesses, we finally brought in Bellerin's long-term successor after his departure late last summer. This Dutch right-back has an incredible name and is a pacy and aggressive little player. He will take his time to settle in London for the rest of this season and more game time will be granted in the upcoming campaign. Nohan had been on loan at the club since last summer and we decided to sign him on a permanent deal in January as he has shown great potential both in training and the cup games. The versatile Englishman is still very young and he will provide valuable backup in multiple positions, while making use of the decent training facilities at the club to take his game to the next level.
  3. 23 October 2021 Profitable Summer Dear Diary, The Arsenal Board must be happy with how I have been managing their finances in the summer transfer window. It has been a tough summer as numerous key players wanted to leave the club for European football. We finished 12th last campaign and have no European football this season. Our number one full-backs forced transfers to Man United and I did not want to keep unhappy and uncommitted players at the club. We raised 276 million pounds in total and spent only less than a third of the money raised. Even though this signing wasn't made by myself, I'm very excited about managing this player. Tonali signed on a free transfer before Arsenal brought me in. I can't help but say that the board has done pretty well in bringing in a player of his quality for absolutely nothing. He will be key for us in our midfield triangle in the upcoming campaign. We needed to start thinking about replacing Aubameyang as he's 32 this year and we can't depend on him for goals at this stage of his career. Patrice recommended one young Italian striker to me (;)) and I snapped him up immediately for a mere 11 million pounds. This guy is already looking incredible in training and he can definitely go all the way to the top if he keeps working hard. Esposito will replace Aubameyang in our starting 11 once he learns English. We needed more cover up top as Lacazette left for Real Madrid in 2020. I chose to let Nketiah go as he isn't strong aerially and physically enough to play in our system. We decided to pay big money for Brewster as he knows the country and has the potential to grow into a decent Premier League striker. He will provide cover for Aubameyang while Esposito undergoes intensive lessons to learn English.
  4. Gunners have always needed a tenacious midfield destroyer and Fletcher will be a good fit! Craig Hemmings doesn't sound like a Brazilian name, does it?
  5. Preston's new board must be the worst I've encountered on FM thus far. Let's hope things are better with Arsenal!
  6. 29 June 2021 The Decision Dear Diary, The decision has been made. I'm the new Arsenal manager! Wolves was the only other English job available and I opted for the Gunners as the Wolves' Board wanted me to sign and develop Portuguese players. I did not want to be bounded by such business decisions. Arsenal finished 12th last season after a disastrous campaign. I'm tasked to rebuild the squad and bring European football back to the Emirates Stadium. It will not be easy, but I'm just relieved to be back in a job.. ..and oh yes, I brought back an Invincible
  7. 26 May 2021 The Worst Board Ever Dear Diary, Preston was taken over by a new board since the season ended, and it must be one of the worst ever. I took Preston from the bottom of the table to the play-offs, and the media only tipped them to finish in the top half at the start of the season. The previous board was happy with me (I was given a B), and I was looking forward to building the squad to go for that holy grail. The takeover came during preseason and the new board decided to bring in their own man The board went ahead to sack the next two managers during the course of the campaign, and they finished 21st in the table eventually. Is it weird that I feel slightly happy about this? As for myself, I've received job interview invitations from Leicester, Arsenal and a number of Championship clubs throughout the season. I decided to sit out the whole season and wait for a new project at the start of the next. Which one would you take?
  8. 24 January 2020 Busy January Dear Diary, January has been incredibly busy.. We suffered a dip in form in early January when we lost Bauer to injury. As a result, we lost two league games in a row and fell further behind the play-off places. The boys did well to bounce back with consecutive victories when we had our 1st choice center-back pairing back on the pitch. Here is how the table looks as we approach the end of January.. ..and here's a sneak peek of what we've been busy with in the market
  9. 1 January 2020 Climbing up the Table Dear Diary, We are improving with each game.. The boys continued to impress in the next one and a half months and we have 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat in our last 9. The highlight was without a shadow of a doubt our 7-0 home win against Luton, when we went 6-0 up after half and hour. The low point came when we went for the kill at Leeds after they went down to 10 men. We lost 2-3 eventually after switching off on a counter-attack and a set-piece. We have come a long way since I came into the picture and the lads have done brilliantly to climb 16 places in the league. We now sit 8th after 25 games. The best performing player has to be our main man up top. Maguire has been on a fine goal-scoring run, bagging 7 in his last 9 starts. We would be no where near where we are in the table without his goals and work rate upfront. He's injury prone though and I will be praying hard that he can stay fit for the rest of the season. We keep going!
  10. The saved files are in my old laptop and it crashed Fletcher will attempt to do what Evra did (at Birmingham) with Preston!
  11. 23 November 2019 Out of Relegation Zone Dear Diary, We are out of the relegation zone after two decent months.. We were rock-bottom in mid-September and the squad was full of injured, unfit and unhappy players. I had to organise numerous friendlies to get the returning players match fit as we do not have a reserve or u23 side. Results improved with the upturn in morale and fitness. There was a marked improvement in results when our only natural left-back returned to full fitness, and we are now on a six-match unbeaten run. This man has been absolutely on fire, scoring 4 in his last 3 and let's hope it continues \o/
  12. Cheers lads! Just when the squad is finally ready to challenge at the top, we lose the save! But we will go again with Preston
  13. 17 September 2019 The First Job Dear Diary, I'm the new Preston Manager. This is the club where possibly the biggest football star ever (Becks) gained his first-team football experience. This is also where David Moyes made his name as a manager. We are tipped to finish 13th but it is a long way up from where we are in the table. We have a decent Championship-level starting 11 but the defensive backups aren't quite good enough. We are also badly lacking in pace down the wings, apart from Scotty Sinclair. Nevertheless, we will have to cope with what we have for the next 3-4 months. On the bright side, we have a very strong group of central midfielders and Johnson is the best of the lot. A very good ex-Premier League striker was brought in to be my Assistant.. ..and this could be huge \o/
