    I was surprised they had - on paper a strong squad.

    I'm on my sixth attempt - this time I didn't get sacked in the first season and am now in the Championship.

    Hereford FC 2024/25 - Championship 3rd. (A new record high) The season went better than initially expected but feels like a failure having lost 3-2 on aggregate in the play-off semi-finals. Overall the defence was too leaky this season as some players who've been with me since the Conference days just weren't up to it - this combined with a poor run in December where I only picked up eight points left me falling short of automatic promotion by six points. I moved a few players out this season - I think that this close season will see a bigger cull - the major transfer was my first choice keeper moving on for £1.5 million. Two of my midfielders ended up in the team of the year - the other nine were all from Middlesbrough. The hardest thing is not being able to compete on the wages front - hopefully that'll improve after the next season as I move into my new ground. FA Cup - 3rd Round This was a very brief appearance - we were drawn at home to Everton who dispatched me 0-2. Carabao Cup - 4th Round A slightly longer apperance which saw me knock out Man Utd on penalties and the reward was an away draw to Manchester City who easily desposed of me 0-2 Top Scorer was Harvey Bradbury with 22 but Jaden Thompson-Brissett was signed in the January transfer window and finished with 15 goals in 19 games - he also topped the average ratings chart with a 7.51. End of season awards First time I've had shirt sales broken down Aims for next season - don't get relegated.

    Urgh the dreaded playoffs coming up. Knocked out in the semi finals by a 91st minute goal.

    His weekly wage for Brighton is almost my entire wage budget.

    From wonderkid at Real Madrid to to 23rd in the Championship.

    I've just been offered £1 million for my first choice keeper - the cash would help but I don't know if I've got enough time to replace him, decision, decisions. In the end I accepted the £1.5 million.

    2024/24 Hereford FC Championship A quick mid -season review. This season it's become painfully obvious that a reasonable number of my players are not good enough for this level - we've been far too inconsistent but are sitting in eighth. I'm going to have to have quite a clear out and the end of the season and rebuild - we're definitely not ready for promotion if our cup performances are anything to go by. At the end of next season we move into our new stadium (12k capacity).

    Nice going - my 1st seasons a bit of a mixed affair so far.

    Good luck @joethequin

    I had a war of words with Craig Bellamy - then beat his side and he got fired
  13. I'd love to know what constitutes a clear cut chance - because it mostly seems a way of indicating missed opportunities

    I move to a 12k stadium in two years
