  1. This is very strange, I was predicted to finish 20th at the beginning of the season, now as we enter the new year and I'm second with a game in hand and could go top if I beat the leaders Port Vale on New Year's day, I'm predicted to finish dead bottom.
  2. 2022-2023 has come to a close and it's another year in the National League for Whitehawk. They improved on the previous year, finishing in 9th spot with a solid goal difference. The board still expect the club to be fighting for relegation in the following season, which may explain why they have not injected anything in the finances. I believe the team can push for a play-off place and that's what I will be aiming for. The cups finished early with Doncaster and Chesterfield knocking us out. The squad was improved but the core remained the same. Some players were moved on and others relea
  3. So the third season came to a close and we managed to finish 14th in the National League, survival was the goal at the start of the season and that was achieved. I was again nominated for manager of the year, but finished in third place this time. In the cups, Yeovil knocked me out of the FA Cup in the 1st round, but we went on a great FA Trophy run losing to Chesterfield in the semis (2-1 over two legs). Unfortunately three key players picked up serious injuries just before those games, including a broken leg for my main striker. In the transfer market, I brought in several players on fr
  4. Second season: 2020-2021 The build-up to the season was quite odd. Off the pitch, the 50k finances disappeared quickly and the planned development of the youth system was cancelled. We did sign a new sponsorship deal worth 14.5k/year, which was more or less our sole source of income, seeing as the attendance rarely exceeds 500 people. I did however get my first coaching badge. On the pitch things went well with a steady friendly period culminating in a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace. I did book more home friendlies against strong opposition in the hope of getting some income but they wer
  5. I go into the last game of the season against the league leaders Bath only one point behind them, things are getting tense.
  6. So I've just finished my first season with Whitehawk and after being predicted to finish 19th and struggle for survival, the team exceeded expectations qualifying for the play-offs thanks to a 5th place finish. When I first took over, there were not even enough players in the first team to have a starting 11. And the U23s and U18s were not very fruitful either. This meant I dived into the transfer market, signing whatever I could to fill in the vacant positions in the squad. Over the season, I continued to strengthen where possible, but my first team at its core mainly consisted
  7. It does say they should be hidden as the box should be unticked "All of the boxes should be left unticked apart from 'do not add key staff' and 'prevent use of in-game editor'. It should look like this."
  8. When you're meant to be fighting for relegation but you find yourself in 4th place and hammering 6th place teams. Although I've probably just jinxed myself now.
  9. I went for Whitehawk, let's see if I can knock Brighton of their perch.
