Hi everyone, so glad I found this thread. My story started with managing the club I support Birmingham City and after getting them up first season, we only survived 2 seasons before relegation and after being thumped 5-0 at home to Huddersfield, I resigned feeling I had done all I could and waited for a job offer.
Out of nowhere Montpellier contacted me for a interview and low and behold I was managing in the French League(never managed there before), well it was hard work for my first half season but we managed to finish 15th with the club in debt,no money for transfers etc but during the pre-season my DOF made some good loan signings, I promoted some very promising youngsters and we are having a good season so far(highlight was a 1-1 draw with PSG). The debt has come down even thou the board keep going on about it, we have some money for shroud signings but my highlight was getting Gary Cahill on a free for wages of £11,000 per week.
The downsides was being knocked out of both cups early on but we did reach 5th at one stage. Its mid season now and I am sure we can reach the top 10 or better. I will post the entire season once this season has finished as I enjoying the ups and down at my club.
