  1. Fully expecting a painful descent back to reality next year but we shall see. Vikeo - I started this last year but only managed to complete one season in Singapore before my laptop died.
  2. The beginning of my travels saw me fall directly in the arms of the law and take over PSNI which stands for Police Service of Northern Ireland. I don't know if this is a team made up of police officers or how it works to be honest, but they were relegated from the NIFL Championship 1 last year and sat in 6th when I took over this year. I joined the day before Halloween and decided to design my own tactics right from the beginning. Usually, I'd use a downloaded tactic because I am utterly dreadful when it comes to tactics but I fancied a change. Our first match saw us run out 5-0 winners over lower league Larne in the Intermediate Cup with my newly designed 4-4-2 and suddenly I was the second coming of José Mourinho in my head. Then we thumped bottom of the league Moyola Park 4-1 and I was already preparing my hall of fame speech for when I was clearly going to be inducted if results continued. We'd come back down to earth with an elimination in the next round of the cup but we dusted ourselves off and continued. I actually lost just the one league game from October until the end of the season but a handful of draws saw our points tally not as high as one might expect when told they only lost one game all season. We also struggled to keep a clean sheet - we never picked up a win and a clean sheet in the same game in the league all season. In fact, we kept just four clean sheets under my reign in total which is an area that needs improvement for sure. We finished in third place, 5 points outside of second place and the only playoff place in the league. With the right additions and tweaks, we could be up top next season I think. I'd call that a successful season nonetheless. Season Team Position Notes and Achievements 2015/16 PSNI 3rd
  3. Afternoon all, thought I'd give this a blast with my current saves going a bit stale. Profile | Leagues Will be holidaying for a while to get rid of the jobs at the start and hopefully a decent job will pop up somewhere!
  4. Chapter 4: Angola July 2026 - Sporting Cabinda - Girabola It took 9 months and a knockback from Recreativo do Libolo - which would have been a fantastic job - but I finally landed myself a job in Angola. Unfortunately, it happened to be at the club sitting rock bottom and at least seven points adrift of safety with half the season gone. Beggars can't be choosers though! Thankfully, we're eased into life with a nice, simple opener against Petro de Luanda... The only saving grace is that we're still in the cup which means we could tick that off this year. I won't be holding my breath though. Financially, the club is in the black which is always good but I have no idea if this type of money is considered good or not in Angola. Some serious improvements required here but with no money and deadline day tomorrow, I doubt I'll be able to make any. Our star man as chosen by my assistant. He's quite good but at 31 maybe only has a couple of years left in him.
  5. Must be tough being voted the best player of the year and being on such a pittance at Manchester City...
  6. January 2026 - Ballon d'Or The Ox is the second EPL player to win the Ballon d'Or in a row and the first Englishman in a good while. And, being honest, he's a name I hadn't expected to see here. It is deserved though as he has managed to cement himself in the City line up for 5 consecutives years since a £39m move from Arsenal.
  7. Hands up if you expected that... No, me neither. We absolutely destroy Lusitans in the Super Cup to take home the final trophy in Andorra. Incredible scenes and what a way to bow out of Andorran football! Angola next.
  8. Season 2025/26 Preview - C.E Jenlai - Andorran First Division Expectations We outdid the boards expectations in the Champions League which is always a bonus. If we win the Super Cup, we needn't worry about the other expectations. Here's hoping... Transfers No outgoings this year but two incoming central midfielders. With Marinho getting on and winding down his career, we need a replacement and we got two very good ones! Technically very good but lacks alot physically. Will do a job though and that's the main thing. Very highly rated youngster and it's easy to see why; he's both good and versatile. Fixtures We had our little European adventure for pre-season fixtures but needed more to tide us through until the Super Cup. After being put firmly in our place by Bordeaux's reserves - which contained alot of first team members to be fair - we bounced back with consecutive wins to send us into the Super Cup with good morale. Other News Nice to see the board looking out for our youth. On a side note regarding youth, one of our youth players from last year (not shown because he won't stay once I've deactivated the league) has just been capped for Andorra. Good potential.
  9. Celtic huffed and they puffed and they generally dominated us but they couldn't score. We hung on to claim a famous 0-0 results against the top side in Scotland who are over 100x better than us.
  10. Quite a positive result really! As you'd expect, we were not a threat at all but we were by no means completely humiliated in front of 56,000 people. The second leg at home in front of 3,000 will be quite different.
  11. Incredible result as we steamroll Valletta. Can't see us doing the same to Celtic though!
  12. Well our European debut was eventful to say the least. It was tipped to be a close game and I fancied our chances at home. We had to do well here and couldn't be relying on the away leg to do our business. We were 2-0 up with 50 minutes gone and just as I was settling down, Ibanez got himself sent off. Nightmare. But it didn't really affect us; Valletta pushed but we absorbed their attacks and countered with good pace twice to pick up two more goals and secure a thumping 4-0 win. I don't want to tempt fate... but do Celtic await us?
  13. Our league win and subsequent Champions League qualification has rewarded us with a tie against the Maltese champions. I don't actually know how good they will be but should be slip by them, we face none other than Celtic.
  14. End of Season 2024/25 - C.E Jenlai - Andorran First Division So as shown above, we breezed the First Division and were runaway leaders by the end of the season. Where the suspense lies now is in how we did in the Andorran Cup competition. If we could win that and the Super Cup during the early stages of next season, we'd be done with Andorra and free to leave. WE DID IT! An early goal put us one down and I was fearing the worst but we struck back instantly and were ahead with 20 minutes to go. Rubio, our left winger, gave us a two goal cushion and thank goodness he did as Lusitans would pull one back in the dying moments. Fortunately, we held on and that meant we were only left with the Super Cup to win! A monster update of fixtures since silly old me forgot to update at the end of February. Obviously it is irrelevant in hindsight since we won but we did suffer a few wobbles - notably, a friendly loss to our U19s and a 2-1 defeat to Encamp. The defeat to Encamp came at the hands of losing Marinho for a bad challenge when we were 1-0 up. Encamp came at us with everything and came out with the victory. We did the double, go us! The final league table shows our dominance as we end up 12 points clear of second. Spare a thought for Extremenya who were relegated despite having six more points than Engordany, who qualified for Europe instead. Awards, Reviews and Records This is a well earned win for Etienne who continued his fine form from last season. He was an absolute star on the right wing. Key Players One of our top scorers and assists, he shone from day one in the league. Brilliant season yet again. Marinho was once again pivotal in the centre of the park, pulling the strings and scoring in good numbers. Had sadly announced his impending retirement although I'm secretly hoping he will reconsider if I ask nicely enough. Started the season not so great on the left wing but a late flurry of important goals in important matches ensured him a place on this list. Good season.
  15. Fantastic work on reaching European football! Hopefully the money can go towards investing in the facilities.
