  1. SEASON 6 2026/27 - LAZIO - PRE SEASON / TRANSFERS A few quid was spent, didn't plan on signing Esposito but he fell in my lap at what I considered a very cheap price for him during the January window. Tonali was also a bit of a coup on the price from Spurs. COPPA ITALIA Knocked out in the semi's CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Started the group badly with a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea but overturned them at home 1-0 Knock out 1st leg ... thought we were done and dusted.... One of the strangest games I think I've h
  2. SEASON 5 2025/26 -LAZIO- My last update was in Jan 2026 having finished the season with Santos having won the league and copa libertadores we were ready to make a move elsewhere. 3 months passed without any decent opportunites coming up and I was close to joining Leicester & Everton but just as I was about to agree with Leicester the Lazio job popped up (who had sacked Brazilian ex santos, wolfsburg & juve midfielder Diego) who were well placed in Serie A with 9 games left of the season for a possible run at champions league qualification. The squa
  3. Good luck in Uruguay, I enjoyed it a lot with Defensor. Nacional always seemed to have a very strong squad and along with Penarol were the major powers. The only frustration you may have if you stay that long is taking on the brazilian big boys in the copa lib
  4. SEASON 5 2025 -SANTOS- I applied for the spurs job at the end of last season and got an interview but they went with Setien (old barca manager) so I was back for another slog in Brazil! PRE SEASON/TRANSFERS The initial January window (when the season starts in brazil) went well but the mid season during the summer window we lost 3 key player to release clauses. Hudson was a painful loss as he was by far and away the best player in the league! Tete was the big money buy brought back to Brazil from the Ukraine to fill in on the right after the loss o
  5. SEASON 4 2024 -SANTOS- PRE SEASON / TRANSFERS For those of you who have managed in Brazil will probably be aware thats there's not really such a thing as a pre season its just a never ending supply of matches.... 72 this season A fair few quid was spent and it was needed. I didn't want to lose either Renyer or Costanza but their release clauses were met so my hands were tied. of the ins, the pick quality wise was probably Hudson who's release clause we activated from Vitoria. His release clause is moderately low at £14.75m (agent insisted)
  6. @timpy00 blimey, I think I will give peru a miss. Good luck next up
  7. SEASON 3 REVIEW -2023- DEFENSOR SPORTING CLUB After completing the double last season the only reason keeping me in uruguay was a tilt at the Copa Libetadores. However after last season' failed group elimination in the lesser sudamericana I was skeptical of how we would fair! A failed attempt to get the Flamengo job at the conclusion of last season meant we continued with Defensor. Our league form was patchy in the first stage of the league. Losing as many games as I did for the entirety of the last campaign but I put this down the juggling act with re
  8. Season 2 Review -2022- DEFENSOR SPORTING CLUB My second season in Uruguay this time with Defensor after the first season promotion with central espanol and subsequent (harsh sacking) got off to a tough start. Tough in the respect that 2 of my 3 best players Luciano Boggio & Facundo Milan demanded moves to bigger clubs. Considering both players contracts were running down their wishes were granted and sales were negotiated with Atalanta for Boggio & Fiorentina for Facundo Milan for decent fee's comparative with the league and most importantly in the
  9. ...............And we're back. After 3 months of licking my wounds of a harsh sacking and applying here there and everywhere it took until the turn of the year (uruguay season finished mid sept) to finally get some interviews. I initially thought I would return to management in the south african second tier with Steenberg Utd who were placed around mid table a job which I would have taken so I could have progressed up to the win the ACL with either them or moving onto Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates in time. The lure of unfinished business in Uruguay was too bigger pull though and
  10. CENTRAL ESPANOL 2021 SEASON REVIEW The board expectation was to gain promotion via the playoffs but we managed to go better and went up automatically as champs! The squad was already pretty strong for the league but was topped up throughout the course of the season with a steady flow of trialists who were signed on contracts and we managed to get the job done and clinch the title with 2 games to spare having lead from the off. The Uruguayan second division maybe the only league I have seen which will perm
  11. Looking for something new so going to give this a go! First Job see's me rock up in the Uruguayan Second Tier with Central Espanol with an expectation to make the Play offs.
  12. Managing Koln in germany and approach an agent for the availability of players at a lot of south american clubs and I frequently get a reply saying "he will only consider joining if you have a realistic chance or can compete in the copa libertadores" obviously being a europen side this is impossible!!
  13. Hi, Anyone Interested in some MLB fantasy action this season? I am putting a league together it will be through ESPN on Head to Head Points. It will be a cash league with £10 entry, if anyone is interested drop me a message. Most likely drafting Sunday or Tuesday night. Cheers
  14. i'm 9 seasons into a save where I begun as Sunday league with no qualifications and I now have all my badges.... I would say that your ratings get a boost every time you complete a coaching qualification and your success in the game. eg if you are a rampant attacking side your attack rating would be higer than your defensive
