  1. Finally getting a chance to play a bit of FM, back to Bray Wanderers for a few games.
  2. Board approached me too, I made a couple of requests and they said yes because they wanted to keep me, so I've decided to stay with my extra wage budget they gave me.
  3. Nope I'm pre-season. It starts in March it's a strange season. Yeah I see what you mean but I'm going to be in a relegation scrap at Bray too I imagine, the pull of a professional club is tempting but I do want to make a go of it in Ireland then maybe look next summer as you say, tough decision.
  4. I'm in a dilemma, I applied at York City who are 19th in League 2 in January who gave me an interview. But Bray Wanderers have now entered contract talks with me as my contract expires this month, I can't delay the talks to see if York offer me the job. I've had a great season at Bray getting promoted to the first tier, signing some players and building a squad I'm happy with. We will be a weak team in the top tier though so it could be a difficult season. Both clubs have financial problems also, I'm not sure what to do! I've saved and stopped playing for now while I have a think, another fact
  5. Yeah it sounds frustrating but a good challenge with the B teams. What's even more frustrating is that I've had a regeneration come through, brimming with potential and good enough for a few substitute cameos this year, injury prone and can't play in big games! Also the guy I have tutoring him is leaving and won't sign a new deal. Think I'll be taking a chance on him anyway as you don't get much choice at this level.
  6. Crazy mate two first place finish promotions B2B! Nice one. How did you find managing B teams? Do you feel attached to Gillingham at all now or would you leave them given a good chance?
  7. It's going to be a long transfer windows that's for sure! I think I can improve enough to stay up and then build on it. We'll see. Yeah I'm the same in regards to better opportunities but I do want to stay in Ireland for a few years.
  8. My first season of this challenge with Bray Wanderers is coming to an end, overall an acceptable season. I've won second tier league with four games to go and got to a cup final which I lost to Shamrock Rovers (they've knocked me out of almost every cup!) Problem is, all my good players will not sign any contracts with me and most have already signed pre-contracts with other clubs. So my first year in the top flight next year could be horrendous.
  9. Taking a few days out of FM due to work unfortunately :-( really looking forward to finishing my first season though hopefully have that done early next week.
  10. A question, as mentioned earlier I had a crash dump. Do you guys just holiday until you get the same results? I was in poor form and am one of the better teams in this league so it's going to take a while!
  11. Sounds pretty nice, I normally love managing in England but for this challenge Ireland really appealed to me, it will mean slower progress but it's something different for me. Maybe next time I'll wait it out for a L1 job if I ever start over.
  12. Not a bad season overall Vike, in League 1 in just your second year? Didn't think that was possible! I played a bit last night then had a crash dump, got annoyed and just didn't play any more. So now I have to holiday until I get the same bloody results, was a poor run of form too.
  13. Oh believe me it's not been convincing at all though! 9 games in now won the following 2, will play a few more tonight. Hopefully can carry on doing just about enough to go up but I don't fancy my chances much in the first tier, would all depend on my wage budget how well I'd do. Not going too bad for you then, that's bs about that player that refused a call up?! Who the hell would do that!
  14. So I'm six games into the league as Bray Wanderers in the Irish second tier. It was a difficult transfer window as there was a HUGE lack of talent and pretty much every decent player left. I was favourites to go up as they'd just been relegated. Really not happy with how I played at the start of the season but I've changed the tactic up and it's going okay for now, some worrying signs though. The Shamrock Rovers game was disappointing but they are one of the top teams in Ireland so I never really stood a chance.
  15. Oh I see, yeah I'm going about the challenge slightly differently to suit me really. Really determined to dominate Ireland before I move on. But obviously you never know what jobs can pop up.
