  1. York City, September 2024 It's been a long summer preparing for life in the Championship. To start with outgoing transfers there were only two of note. First out was an unwanted departure as young CM Jenson Learoyd - who was poised to make the breakthrough into the first team - suddenly drew the attention of a number of Championship clubs. We signed him on a free from Arsenal and he eventually departed for £575k to Sunderland after a bidding war quickly surpassed his £450k release clause. The second major departure came on transfer deadline day as Dundee Utd paid £725k for our troublesome
  2. You guys have never played non-league in England !
  3. Commiserations! I know the feeling - just getting my Championship season underway with York, one of our first games was against re-relegated Bournemouth. The team they put out had a total value of more than £130m while my entire squad is worth about a tenth of that, including the £6m on-loan defender . Bookies have us dead certs to finish bottom. Gonna be a long season. Good luck in Italy
  4. No-one can say you didn't give it good go . Best of luck with the new venture.
  5. York City, May 2024 With another promotion - and title - in the bag, here's a round-up of the second half of the season: After a perfect month in the league in January, I was hoping for steady progress for the remainder of the season. Things didn't go quite that smoothly. Home draws against Wigan and Wednesday were annoying. After a tough run of away games in January, thanks to the EFL's random fixture generator and a couple of matches moved for waterlogged pitches, I expected an easier time of it with 4 consecutive home games. We started well enough but then faltered, culminati
  6. Another bit of luck, then . Now that you've mentioned it I vaguely remember the anniversary from your career thread, but really I had no idea. I'll see what we can do about that 15th place.
  7. Cheers! Incredible is the word... even with a squad of top class players it would be an impressive run but, with a couple of exceptions like Abdul, it's a ragtag bunch of youngsters, L2- and Vanorama-level players. I think I'm pretty good at squad- and man-management, generally keeping morale up, and rotating for good fitness levels, but this is far beyond expectations. Anyway, we secured the title in the next game - a 3-3 draw against a Gillingham side managed by Wayne Rooney was enough as Birmingham also failed to win. The board have promised a decent transfer budget but we'll be tight
  8. Oops, I did it again March 12, 7 games to go, title still to play for.
  9. Brilliantly That's a terrific season. Good luck in the Prem!
  10. Indeed - some excellent business there, and getting Simms back at that price looks a genuine bargain. Yes, they've done us proud. Having Millwall as a senior affiliate would have been handy
  11. We know the media in FM are a bunch of lying scumbags, but really... This is what I said in a press conference: And this is how the media reported it:
  12. York City, February 2024 December was a brutal month off the pitch as my worries about an injury crisis came true while we played out a punishing schedule of 9 games. We compounded the problem by failing to see off non-league opposition in Boreham Wood in the FA Cup, presenting us with a replay we didn't need. We then made life doubly difficult by failing to win the replay in normal time, leading to extra-time and a penalty shootout. That effort left a threadbare squad utterly shattered for the remainder of the month. In addition to our problems at AML and AMR, we also lost a CM, a CB and
