  1. There are plenty of possibilities, I will rule five jobs out (the big 3 plus Twente and AZ) but I'll be interested in loads of jobs. I'd like one of four clubs, but I shall see what is available and go from there.
  2. I have two or three in mind. I'm just hoping I don't have to wait too long before one of them becomes available.
  3. May Disappointing to miss out on the cup this year, but I'm sure many of you will have noticed that the month is incomplete.... Rather than just coasting, I've decided I'll walk away. I shall make a few edits to the thread further up to take the change of direction into account.
  4. I don't think I've ever managed there, to be honest. I like the league in real life (I covered it for a few years and it was always good fun) so I need to put that right.
  5. Quick query: who are you managing, at what level, and do you already have players on that type of deal?
  6. Well watching Arsenal get battered is quite funny, I must admit
  7. Not quite going to be as bad as that, but that is the next stage. I want UEFA to call their bluff - just let them go. We're talking about a group of about 10 clubs. Go play your little super league, we'll see how interesting it is when you play each other four times a year. I'm bored just thinking about it.
  8. Decision made. I will be staying until a suitable job in Holland becomes available. I suspect that means I'll have to wait until the end of the season, or perhaps the Autumn, but I'm ready to move on.
  9. I do have history there, agreed.
  10. Decided to plow on until the mid-season break, and then reassess. I was *this* close to resigning last night, but glad I slept on it.
  11. 2nd and the cup is an excellent season, well done. Getting that debt out the way can only be a good thing, too.
  12. Very much so, but then the last one found himself in England eventually, so there is a precedent!
  13. I'm definitely leaning towards a change, but I think I need to sleep on my decision so I don't do something I regret. Sweden has been fun, but I fear we've already got clear of the best clubs in the country, which leaves Europe as the only real challenge. With the squad rules being a little more lax in Sweden than Norway, I don't quite have the same level of satisfaction as I did in the previous save, so my head has been turned. If I do move on, I'm thinking of going to a strong league but not one of the big five (somewhere like the Netherlands or Belgium) where there are traditional big clubs for me to try and overthrow with a less-glamorous side, and then push on into Europe. It isn't quite what I had in mind when I started the thread, but maybe FM saves are like dogs: if you have the same breed over and over, you'll always compare them to the last one rather than enjoying them for who they are. I'd appreciate your thoughts anyway, but in the meantime, I'm off for some kip. Cheers.
  14. Yep, definitely getting itchy feet.
  15. This morning.
