  1. 6th pace after christmas! cracking performance. just got to maintain it now
  2. Pre season of 2021 and we are in the Sky Bet Championship. Though according to the bookmakers not for very long. We are 60-1 to go up. While we are evens to go back down. They believe we will finish 22nd, with Luton and fellow promoted side Lincoln below us. Interestingly Wigan who came up with us having finished 2nd are predicted to avoid the drop and finish 18th. Of the relegated clubs Everton are expected to bounce straight back up as champions. Norwich should finish 2nd. With Crystal Palace and Swansea both down from the Premier league last season are only good enough for playoff spo
  3. December 2021 Group E Game 6 Despite our domestic league dominance this season, our Champions league form has been patchy at best. While we haven't lost a group game so far in the campaign. We find ourselves in the strange position of being top of the group, but the team below us in 2nd place have secured qualification while we ourselves haven't. The simplest equation is, we need a minimum of a point from our last game to secure qualification. If we lose and Lyon get a win in Turkey then we would slide from top of the group all the way to the Europa league. We get off to a
  4. December 2021 Game Week 16 Norwich up next, the team I have seriously cursed since suggesting they might be in and around the top 6 come the end of the season. What with them slipping all the way to 18th since I said it. Today when they play us as Carrow Road is not the day for lifting said curse thank you very much! We are however the late game on the Saturday, meaning we know the majority of the other results before we come out to play. Goals galore at St James Park. Liverpool have Wijnaldum on the transfer list. Along with a lot of their older playe
  5. on a slightly more light hearted note @BenArsenal Chelsea Retirement Home 2 - Norwich 1 tell me I'm wrong
  6. December 2021 Game Week 15 As I noted at the end of last month, December is a much easier month on paper regarding who we play. Wolves to start with probably the hardest game going by the teams relative positions in the league. Though to say we fielded our 1st XI for this game it was a slog to get a result. It required a soft penalty just before the hour mark for us to go ahead. Tammy Abraham getting us on the scoresheet. Only a few minutes later and Reece James, scores a fine direct free kick. Patricio might feel he could have done better, but I'm quite happy. We were
  7. hasn't it always been corrupt? The blatant France hand ball in the international qualification playoff which got ignored so France could progress as they would bring more fan appeal to the tournament than Ireland. The dubious at best relationship between Wolves and Mendes. The hilarity of applying only financial based penalties to clubs who breach FFP rules. The cynic in me says these clubs aren't stupid. There is some position they are bargaining for by going public then withdrawing so suddenly.
  8. Anyone shed any light on why this guy is performing so well? He's playing in my U18s and has been stalked by clubs since he came into my academy. Wolves offered me £10M for him plus addons which only really made me more determined to keep him. I just don't understand why he is so prolific with finishing of 3 and long shots of 7.

  10. November 2021 U18 Update No problems in France for the U18 team. Rolling on in the league as well. Held in the cup though with a last minute Norwich equaliser. Late goals again in the next game. But this one was ours early. Unbelievable result in Europe. Ended the month with a hat trick for Lindo playing on the right wing. Trying to find a way to get him and Maguire in the same line up. Utter domination of our European group. And a comfy lead in the league. The Fenerbache result kind of brings it home. This gr
  11. November 2021 U23 Update This was a good result for us. Especially for our defence as the Leicester team had both Iheanacho and Batman (on loan from us) up front. Less impressive. We deserved to be behind, and we struggled to remain on terms once we got back level. Potentially worrying about the character of the squad as they are used to being ahead in most games. We had already qualified from the group before we played this game. So good showing for what for us was a dead rubber. 4 points might separate us at the top of the table. But nothing could
  12. November 2021 Game Week 14 Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. The only team to beat us so far this season in a competitive match. However they have never beaten us in the league. Also other than the wide positions the team is pretty much back to full strength. We also get off to another dream start. The 1st time Hudson-Odoi gets the ball on the right he goes straight at the Liverpool defence. He is bundled over for a penalty in the 4th minute that Mason Mount converts. It's a cagey 1st half with both teams creating chances but not finishing them off. My nerves are shot as I tell the
  13. November 2021 Group E Game 5 Speaking of the Champions league, that was next. Group whipping boys from Turkey were coming to the bridge. We needed a win to go into the final match against Inter with as much of our destiny in our own hands. However, with this game sandwiched juicily between Man City and Liverpool in the league, it was 2nd XI all the way. That is, the cobbled together 2nd XI due to injuries. Hudson-Odoi got us underway and calmed down just after 10 minutes played Ghosting in at the back post after Loftus-Cheek had crossed low. 5 minutes later and the lead w
  14. November 2021 Game Week 13 Unlucky for some, and that someone might be us. We have to go to the Etihad and do what we were unable to do in 3 attempts last season, get a win against Man City. That however was against Pep. Pep is gone and Bielsa has shifted across the Pennines from Leeds to Manchester. Before kick off I am not so silently cursing the international break. I'm having to field a right ragtag team of vagabonds because all the players who weren't fit enough to play for me 2 weeks ago, well they still got selected and played for their countries in the meantime. Th
  15. November 2021 Game Week 12 Fulham away in the league before the international break. Hopefully just who we need to right the ship. While yes we've only lost 1 competitive game so far this season. We've conceded 6 goals in our last 5 games, and drawn 3 in a row in the Champions league. This is not acceptable to me and I'd rather get back to winning and not conceding... thank you very much. Unfortunately, with the growing injury list, especially in the wide positions I am forced to play Mason Mount as an inverted winger on the left. With Timo Werner available as his replaceme
