  1. Crosco Si Position-GK Starting Nation- Australia Country I vote for- tonga
  2. @vikeologist nah, I am looking to stay at West Ham for the foreseeable future, well at least until the 2024 Euros as both my West Ham side and Switzerland side are very strong. If one of the top 6 (maybe bar Spurs) offer me a job, I will take it though.
  3. 2021/22 West Ham/Switzerland So after the disaster that was my time in the Ivory Coast, I found a new club and international job. Both teams are very good but have had tough times. Laurent Blanc has left me with a West Ham team full of amazing players. From goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic and central midfielder James Ward-Prowse to wonderkid regens Kyllian Dupont and Thomas Kerner. The Switzerland job became available as they finished behind both Scotland and Romania and dropped out of the European Nations League Division A. They have some really good young player such as Southampton star Andre Bieri and Swansea star David Haberthur as well as experienced players such as Atletico Madrids Breel Embolo and Stoke star Xherdan Shaqiri, they also have some young regens who I will attempt to sign at West Ham such as Grasshoppers Bryan Tarone. Competitions- I took over the team after 21 games with the team in 15th and already out of the cup after being knocked out 3rd round by MK Dons. We managed to climb to 12th after giving some youngsters chances in the final few games some highlights of the season were 16 year old Roddy Phillips becoming the young Prem goalscorer with a 90th minute equalizer and James Ward-Prowse scoring 2 goals and getting 3 assists with a bandage around his head after recieving a gashed head early in a 5-1 win over Bournemouth Player of The Season- James Ward-Prowse- Our vice-captain played in 4 different positions for me (DM,CM,CAM and RW) and played very well in all of those games. His best game was definitely the aforementioned Bournemouth game and he has definitely deserved his place in the English team for the World Cup (joke, they choked and were beaten out by France (who are now the World Number 1s). Future Plans- Try to sign as many young Swiss players as well as improving our team. Both of these teams are projects despite West Ham currently being predicted 7th for the Prem. So far I've only played 2 friendlies with Switzerland, a 1-1 draw with Belgium and a 3-2 win over Spain (with a hat-trick from Breel Embolo), so I am hoping that those performances might lead to a very good 2024 European Championship campaign. I have managed to get my Continential Pro Licence which completes my badges. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes|POTS |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th|Ryan Edwards |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season|James Owen |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st|Tjaronn Chery |2019|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|13th|4th Round|Survived first season in Super League|Tjaronn Chery |2020|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|11th|N/A|Left after 4 games into the season|N/A |2019/20|Brisbane Roar|Australian A-League|3rd|Semi-Final|Joined after 25 games.

  4. Beating Greavesy - Game Thread!

    Who got promoted from the championship
  5. 2021 Ivory Coast (worst decision so far) I decided to try to win the World Cup and ACON with the Ivory Coast because I thought the squad was good enough, however when I inherited the squad they were already struggling in WC Qualification and as I am using FM17 there's a glitch that when you have a NT job you can't get a club job so pretty much I wasted a year of my career just to fail in WC Qualification. I have now resigned and will be looking for a new job. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes|POTS |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th|Ryan Edwards |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season|James Owen |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st|Tjaronn Chery |2019|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|13th|4th Round|Survived first season in Super League|Tjaronn Chery |2020|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|11th|N/A|Left after 4 games into the season|N/A |2019/20|Brisbane Roar|Australian A-League|3rd|Semi-Final|Joined after 25 games.

  6. End of 2020 Report I have left Brisbane Roar at the end of 2020 as I said after our FFA Cup and ACL Campaigns finished and there was some good news and some bad news. I did however leave the Roar with some amazing young prospects and some great new transfers Jason Davidson (Rotherdam 425k) and 19 y/o Igor Anic (Sydney United 2k). Igor Anic is extremely good and became our starting striker and has already been capped by Australia 5 times by the age of 19. Competitions- That right we won the Asian Champions League but unfortunately lost to Melbourne City in the 2nd round of the FFA Cup. The ACL run was incredibly easy for me with the journey being a 3-2 win over fellow A-League side Newcastle Jets then a 4-1 win over Sanfrecce Hiroshima the a 3-0 win over Central Coast Mariners before a 3-2 win over Iranian side Teraktor-Sazi in the final. Centre-back Daniel Bowles scoring the winner to make it 2-0 in the second leg and put us ahead in aggregate. Best Player-Tommy Oar- My left winger was awesome all season especially in the ACL. The former FC Utrecht player was amazing at scoring from free-kicks and was crucial in both our ACL and A-League campaign. Future Plans- I am currently studying for my Continental A Licence and will now be looking to go to South Africa, Mexico, Colombia or Argentina |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes|POTS |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th|Ryan Edwards |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season|James Owen |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st|Tjaronn Chery |2019|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|13th|4th Round|Survived first season in Super League|Tjaronn Chery |2020|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|11th|N/A|Left after 4 games into the season|N/A |2019/20|Brisbane Roar|Australian A-League|3rd|Semi-Final|Joined after 25 games.

  7. 2019/20 Brisbane Roar Yep, I've gone down under. I did say I wouldn't leave Guizhou but Brisbane Roar were favorites for the A-League and had already guaranteed finals. They were also still in with a chance of advancing in the Asian Champions League. The team was very good and had a few amazing regens such as Danny Woischuk and Christian Savi as well as young gun Rob DeVere coming in from Bentleigh Greens. Competitions- We have our first trophy towards the challenge with an A-League win beating Sydney on penalties in the Grand Final. It is a relief to finally have a start to the challenge in terms of trophies. The team was already out of the FFA Cup after losing to NPL side Hume City in the semi-final. We did however advance in the ACL with some very good games., including our backup squad drawing 3-3 with a Carlos Tevez led Shanghai Shenhua. Best Player-Erik Paartalu- With me only being in charge for 5 league games and 3 ACL games, I had to chose my POTS on heroics rather than performances and no-one else could be chosen. Australian Erik Paartalu despite being a central midfielder he put some amazing performances as a target man and a wide targetman assisting the goal to get us into the A-League grand final as well as scoring a 90th minute equaliser against Shanghai Shenhua Future Plans- Finish the ACL and FFA Cup campaigns and the move on it's been great at Brisbane but I can't see me staying here for too long |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes|POTS |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th|Ryan Edwards |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season|James Owen |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st|Tjaronn Chery |2019|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|13th|4th Round|Survived first season in Super League|Tjaronn Chery |2020|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|11th|N/A|Left after 4 games into the season|N/A |2019/20|Brisbane Roar|Australian A-League|3rd|Semi-Final|Joined after 25 games.

  8. Although saying I wasn’t going to leave Guizhou, a massive opportunity came up. a team who late in their league season still had a massive chance of winning the league and was still in continential competition sacked their manager and I left guizhou after 4 games of the 2020 season.
  9. 2019- Guizhou Zhicheng/Ivory Coast U23s Since my last update we have made some valuable process. I am still at Guizhou Zhicheng and have had a very good year with both Guizhou and the Ivory Coast U23s (The Ivory Coast U23s in particular) despite not making any progress in terms of competitions with still no competitions for the challenge won. I am also currently studying for my Continental B Licence and my reputation is up to 50%. Competitions- We comfortably survived in the league with 35 points finishing in 13th. We were knocked out of the cup in the 4th round however in one of Tjaronn Chery's (yes him again) many absences through injury during the season. A number of new signings played very well including foreign players Jhon Valoy (120k from Jinyang) and Theerathon Bunmathan (400k from Muangthon United). Altogether a good season for both me and the club and I am looking forward to pushing the club onto bigger things next season. Best Player- Tjaronn Chery- Despite only playing 20 games and scoring 6 goals and getting 4 assists, the Dutchman was again extremely important to me when he was available with nearly all our wins coming with him in the team, including some memorable victories coming against Guangzhou Evergrande and Jiangsou Gouxin-Sainty. Nearly had his contract run out midseason as he was adamant about going to a bigger team but decided to stay with less than a week remaining on his contract U23 African Cup of Nations- We won the U23 African Cup of Nations, winning on penalties against Nigeria in the final. Player of the tournament has to go to USC Bassam stopper and penalty hero goalkeeper Mohamed Bagayoko who only conceded 1 goal in 5 games keeping 4 clean sheets and being the hero in the final when it came down to penalties Future Plans- I did have an interview with South Korean side FC Seoul late in the season when they offered me one (I didn't apply) but I didn't get the job and I think I will stay at Guizhou at least until I get my Continental Pro Licence. I will however step down from the Ivory Coast U23 with the aim to get a senior role. Next season at Guizhou I will attempt to push for a top half finish and try to make a big cup run. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes|POTS |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th|Ryan Edwards |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season|James Owen |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st|Tjaronn Chery |2019|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Super League|13th|4th Round|Survived first season in Super League|Tjaronn Chery 0/10 Domestic Leagues 0/10 Domestic Cups 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/1 Club World Cup |Year|Nation|Ranking|Notes |2018|Ivory Coast U23|N/A|No games played so far |2019|Ivory Coast U23|N/A|Won the U23 African Cup of Nations 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/2 International Competitions
  10. 2018 Guizhou Zhicheng/Ivory Coast U23s So it has been an eventful 5 months since my last update, I gave up on trying to get a job in South Africa or Australia and took the Guizhou Zhicheng job in the Chinese Jia League. When I took over the team was in 1st place after 22 games as their previous manager had taken the Hangzhou Greentown job in the Chinese Super League. Immediately I asked for my National B Licence as the club had 7 million in the bank and I got it. So it has been a really good start in China. I have also taken my first international job with the Ivory Coast U23s who will play qualifiers for the U23 African Cup of Nations next year. I know this competition doesn't count but it will hopefully give me some extra reputation as well as possibly lead to the main team job in a few years. Competitions- Although we were already out of the cup we were still very much in contention for the league when I arrived as we were winning a three horse between us, Shanghai Shenxin and Shijiazhuang Yongchang. This race ended up with me only needing a point from my final game to secure the title and promotion (although, Shenxin and Yongchang did have 2 games remaining at that point, so the league wasn't as close as it looked at that point). We ended up achieving this with Dutch attacking midfielder Tjaronn Chery (you'll hear more about him later) firing in our only goal in a 1-1 draw against ,id-table Huanghai Best Player- Tjaronn Chery- The ex-QPR Dutchman played an extremely crucial role in our teams promotion with him being one of our two foreigners (the other being Kenyan striker Michael Olunga). He scored 15 goals and got 8 assists in his role as trequarista with a fair few of those coming in the 10 games I was in charge. Will definitely remain as a key player next year in the Super League. Future Plans- Push for mid-table in the Super League, qualify for the U23 African Cup of nations, get to a Continential C License, simple. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season |2018|Guizhou Zhicheng|Chinese Jia League|1st|4th Round|Joined after 22 games in 1st 0/10 Domestic Leagues 0/10 Domestic Cups 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/1 Club World Cup |Year|Nation|Ranking|Notes |2018|Ivory Coast U23|N/A|No games played so far 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/2 International Competitions
  11. 2017/18 Airbus UK Broughton Competitions- We finished 5th in the league, which didn't really matter to me because we were so far behind TNS. But what really hurt was a 4-1 loss to TNS in the Welsh Cup final stopping me from getting my first piece of silverware. Best Player- James Owen- A great signing from Gap Connahs Quay at the start of the year played really well all season while other people struggled My Plans- I managed to obtain my National C License and have decided to leave Wales with my next destination South Africa, Malaysia or Australia to hopefully get my first title. I've made this decision because I think it will be years until I can comfortably beat TNS. I have already had failed interviews at Melbourne City and Ajax Cape Town, with a news article stating I was favorite for Melbourne City. I am currently only in the running for the Western Sydney Wanderers who I haven't heard back from yet. Side note, my contract has run out at Airbus UK Broughton, I am not resigning. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th |2017/18|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|5th|Runners-Up|Left at end of season 0/10 Domestic Leagues 0/10 Domestic Cups 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/1 Club World Cup 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/2 International Competitions
  12. 2016/17 Season- Airbus UK Broughton So I am attempting this challenge again and have decided to start in Wales with Airbus UK Broughton who I joined 23 games into the season with the team in 9th place. Here is my Manager Profile. Competitions- Although the team was already out of the cups before I joined, we managed to climb 2 spots in the league in the 9 games I was at the club, managing to secure a spot in the European Places Playoff, where we lost in the semi-final to Bangor City. In my 11 games at the club, including playoffs, I only lost 2 games. Best Player- Ryan Edwards- My central-midfielder/right back was amazing before and after I joined the club, one of the first things I did at this club was sign him down for another year. |Year|Club|League|League Position|Cup Finish|Notes |2016/17|Airbus UK Broughton|Welsh Premier League|7th|3rd Round|Joined after 23 games in 9th 0/10 Domestic Leagues 0/10 Domestic Cups 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/1 Club World Cup 0/5 Continential Competitions 0/2 International Competitions
