  1. Deportivo in Spain. You have Diego Rolan who is a cut above and you start in the third tier. Realistically reaching La Liga shouldn’t be that difficult, especially if you can keep Rolan.
  2. It was after the FA Cup win. Didn’t they famously beat one of the Milan sides?
  3. Kaizer Chiefs: 2022/23 Review After a really solid season and a half in charge of Royal AM, I surprisingly got the opportunity to take over at the newly crowned champions of South Africa at the beginning of the 2022/23 season. A first league title since 2015 had led to a managerial retirement and I jumped at the chance to move over in the hunt for some quick silverware. Joining this club was all about success for me, with the aim being to put as many winners medals as possible around my neck in as shorter time as possible. One thing I learned quickly was just about how much competitive fo
  4. I’ve really enjoyed it but it feels like a right slog. I’ve got 8 league matches left but with the various cups and champions league could still be close to 20 games left. I’ve just passed the 2022 World Cup though so the fixture list is pretty mad. On two occasions I’ve had 5 matches in 10/11 days. It’s crazy the amount of rotation. in all honesty I’ve enjoyed the different experience though and the same will be said when I go to South America and that. Part of my reason for going into this save was to experience some different leagues etc and so it’s an enjoyable experience so far
  5. I’ll definitely be returning but it’s hard to motivate for a certain relegation. 14 adrift with just ten games or so to go and only 2 wins all season. I’m enjoying South Africa at the moment which I never thought I’d say, but Perugia is definitely not a closed book just yet. Excited to see how Parma are getting on after a good first season.
  6. Glad I could be of help. Nice to have some positive feedback and really appreciate it. I enjoyed Italy a lot actually and at some point I’ll be returning to Perugia I’m sure! Keep it going mate, it’s all rewarding!
  7. I’m just reaching the midway point of the season and it seems very much like they are. There was a shortage of central midfielders but I went out and dealt with it upon arrival. The volume of games is mad here though. So many different competitions but to be fair we’re competing throughout. Progress in the champions league has been nice too. Hopefully we can carry the form through the rest of the campaign.
  8. @The Registais that the James Rodriguez???? Unbelievable dominance from you though!
  9. After a successful first 18 months in management, I have just completed my first move as a manager. I had a really good spell with Royal AM, culminating in a promotion and culminating in a solid 5th placed finish in the South African Premier League. Realistically I was going to struggle to compete for honours with them though, and so I had already decided that now was the time to have a look around at other potential options. After a poor season it looked like Sundowns were the most likely to part ways with their manager, but in the end it was a surprise departure that gave me my new position.
  10. Royal AM: 2021/22 Review My first full campaign has a manager has drawn to a close, and after a brilliant end to last season we enjoyed another good one this time around. After promotion following a play-off win last time around we entered this campaign full of hope. Ten new faces came into the club, and we managed to keep hold of all the players we wanted to in pre-season. We started the season brilliantly before eventually fading off a little. We were never in a relegation scrap, but fell away after threatening a late push towards the league title. With seven matches left we were a mere
  11. Real Kings FC: 2020/21 Review I joined with my club sat 9th in the table, but a little under halfway through the campaign. The squad was definitely underperforming, and I was confident that I could get the team performing much better through to the end of the season. Expectations from the board were purely for a top half finish too, meaning I wasn't really under any pressure for the opening stages of my managerial career. We opened up with three straight games without a goal though, drawing 0-0 twice and suffering a disappointing 0-1 loss in my opening home game in charge. We ended that r
  12. Great post as usual my friend. Very excited to see what goes on this season! Good luck with Leverkusen, I imagine that’s about as tough a draw as you could’ve got!
  13. I’ll be honest I haven’t played on too much more. Decided to attempt the journeyman style ultimate challenge. I played a few more matches this morning though and we actually played a little better. Picked up a second win of the season and a couple of hard fought draws. Unfortunately other results haven’t gone for us and with 12 games remaining we sit 14 points adrift of safety and requiring a miracle.
  14. I've never taken on this challenge before, so this is very much a debut attempt for me. Like many others here, my initial job opportunity has seen me join a club in the second tier of South Africa. It took several months of waiting around, but eventually I signed my first managerial contract on 27th January 2021. I'm really excited about the challenge ahead, and feel I have very much fallen onto my feet. The lucky club to take a punt on me is Royal AM, who were sitting firmly within mid-table at the mid season break. I took over the club with a couple of weeks before my first game in
  15. I’ll be honest I will not be aiming for any of the achievements and just aim to enjoy hopping around trying to win trophies here and there. I’ll try to be in it for the long haul, but reckon I’ll be one of the first people to spend years and years floating around the depths of the lesser nations struggling away 😂
