I regret to inform you that you will not be recieving any more updates from me. Although I realise that many of you have enjoyed this, it takes a lot of time and effort, time and effort which will shortly be taken up by school and school work. I thank you all for your praise and following throughout this sign up, but unfortunately it's not in my best interests to continue. Again I'm sorry that I can't continue, but sometimes real life has to come first.

What Weeeman said really. Having had a conversation prior to this evening, me and weeeman came to the conclusion that our involvement in this sign-up had to come to an end. School work is a priority for me. I thank you all for following this sign up.

Writer's Notes: Given the circumstances, PaulHartman71 has now finished 60th in the sign-up.

Update 8 – canvey!!

Years: 0, Months: 8, Days: 236

Ah, February. One of this month’s most famous days is the feast of St. Valentine. As William Shakespeare wrote in “Twelth Night”, ‘If football be the food of love, play on.’ So we shall, except for three managers who join Jeremy English in having their opera cut short. We’ll move onto them in a short while, but for now let’s start with St. Valentine’s home country of Italy, where a certain Clark Aitken has been tearing up the place.

Not a scratch on the Canadian’s record this month, and perhaps that is why he is Secure. After wins against Torino and Chievo, a 4-1 drubbing of A.C. Milan was in order before rounding off the full house with victory over Lord Weeman’s Napoli. Not only this, but he set up a solid Champions League footing with a 2-1 win in the knockout round’s first leg in Portugal against Sporting.

Contrast this with Neppo Monster at Cagliari, having not won in 10 games and being Insecure. The team picked up two points last month with two home 1-1 draws, but only the most optimistic supporter of Cagliari and their English manager would say that things are looking up. Joining them in the relegation zone with 25 games played are Aitken’s triumphs this month: dafuge’s Torino and Mathias Brunckhorst’s Chievo.

Over in England, the FA Cup has begun to slow down its pace, but plenty has happened in the past 28 days. Chelsea and Andre da Conceiçao got through their Fourth Round Replay unscathed with a 3-0 win over Watford. They then tagged one onto this against Preston in the next round, while Tottenham beat Aston Villa and Arsenal beat Everton 2-0, home and away respectively. Zach Machios’s Portsmouth beat Barnsley, but narrowly, 3-2, and on the feast of St. Valentine itself, it might be some reason as to why he got fired at the end of the month.

18th in the league, though joint bottom on goal difference, there were no happy board members at Fratton Park. Four games, two losses, two draws this month, as well as that cup match. The 0-2 turning over by Leo Dodge’s Tottenham at White Hart Lane was the final straw and resulted in a P45 and a taxi for Machios. Unfortunately, a home FA Cup tie against bottom-placed Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke next might have built back his rapport with the board, but he doesn’t get the chance.

Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton were another side to win in the Cup, but it’s Robert Boyle at Blackburn who ousted big-spenders Manchester City, who have spent £158,000,000 in the season to date. A 1-0 win was slightly against the run of play but the game was not that interesting, and it marks out just one of many victories for Boyle this month. A trip to the Riverside was met with a 1-1 draw against Ricky Nakano’s team, but Tottenham and Bolton were seen off 2-1.

Moving over to Spain now and let’s start with the middle. Recreativo, under the control of Cristobal Blanco, sit 10th and they recovered well to win three of four games this month after losing 0-3 to Almería on the first. Mallorca and Joe Seddon’s Getafe were both overcome with a clean sheet to boot. In 11th are Espanyol, and Joe Gleeson’s team won one, drew two and lost one this month, not a bad return considering they also lost to Almería, yet drew with Real Madrid.

Almería did have a very good month, winning three games and losing at home to Real Madrid. Neilio is only Stable because his team is 14th, but a few more months like this and he could be very happy indeed. Málaga sit bottom, which is bad news for Sirus Lannock, and the closest he came to three points this month was a 1-1 draw with Jellybean Man’s Numancia.

As you know, European football took place this month, with the UEFA Cup’s First Knockout Round being played to completion. There were two ties involving two of our managers, and while Mark Cator’s Aston Villa won against Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo, the other English side in Everton lost out to Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina. A.C. Milan won their tie, as did a number of Spanish sides, but Maz Armley’s Racing, Tottenham, Udinese and Sampdoria went home.

Back to England and it’s little surprise who are top of the Premier League, with an impressive seven-point lead. Maurice Jobson actually lost this month, a 1-3 defeat by money-boys and newly-reinforced rivals Manchester City. Yet Everton were despatched in a fine manner, so too were Tottenham, keeping the Red Devils on top. Their City counterparts have of course done fantastic with their new squad, defeating Liverpool, Man United, Aston Villa and Whoopy Dee’s West Ham although losing in the Cup. Although its no shame to do so, Dee’s lost to Man City saw him pushed out of the club on the 28th, making it two managers in one day in the Premier League, after the team sit 16th, with two wins and two losses this month.

As well as Roma, Ben Cee’s Inter have been top of the form books in the past month in Italy. They sit second and didn’t lose once, with a 2-1 away victory over Jonte Rhode’s Lazio being the least secure of the victories. With a 2-1 victory in Eindhoven for the Champions League first leg, things are looking peachy for Cee, who is Stable. Surprisingly, Lisa Jefferies’s Juventus failed dismally in this month, not winning all month and picking up only one point, again against Lazio. Chievo were pleased to beat the 5th-placed team, but so too were Tyler Burrows’s Udinese, who did it 2-1 at the Old Lady’s ground. With Brettney Joven’s Wigan in the relegation zone, the ladies aren’t doing too well.

The Spanish Cup played the first leg of its semi final this month, and Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid trashed Osasuna 4-0, and Villarreal did that 3-0 to Valladolid. Despite a 4-0 5-0 2-0 2-0 streak, drawing with Espanyol and losing 1-3 at Anfield were lowlights this month. That was in the Champions League Knockout Round 1st Leg, and England were doing the romping, with all of the English sides winning. Haowan Madridstas’s Barcelona won 4-1 against Celtic in Scotland, this went well with a great unbeaten month where they dropped only two points.

Yet Spain, the safest haven for our managers so far, is not all rosy, and experiences its first sacking. In 16th place, 5 places below expectations, you will find (or would find) David Machine and Athletic. A four-match unbeaten run, with a win and two draws this month, was ended by Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal, 0-2, and Athletic were at home, so Fernando García Macua felt it necessary to bring in Louis van Gaal as Machine’s successor. Italy takes the mantle as the safest country.

Wobill Luman’s Betis are in 15th place and lost every game this month, while Sporting, managed by Andy Morton, are 7th, and they won one, drew two and lost one this month, in fact beating Betis 4-1 away. In England, Leo Dodge’s West Brom are 12th, having lost two and won one this month, the win coming over West Ham who sacked their manager.

With 12 of our managers in danger, there’s plenty of fun to be had in March. As well as domestic league action, there’s the Carling Cup final and the FA Cup Sixth Round, the first leg of the Italian Cup semifinal, the conclusion of the Spanish Cup semifinal, as well as the Champions League and UEFA Cup. That’s every competition possible, other than Super Cups. Stay tuned!

Manager of the Update

It’s not particularly easy, but this month’s award goes to;

Robert Boyle, Blackburn

who went undefeated and knocked Manchester City out of the FA Cup. There was some high profile opposition vying for this award, with both Italian leaders Ben Cee and Clark Aitken having wins all month, and Barcelona dropping just two points. In the end, I gave this on compassionate grounds, and the fact that the money of Blackburn is significantly less, than that of these guys and than that of Manchester City, their best victims in this month. Everybody loves the underdog!

It's a real shame that you two, Ridleys and Weeeman, have to drop out. Sometimes real life doe shave to take over though, and we all understand.

Back to canveys update, I think i'll stay stable for sometime. Hopefully I can lie in wait for now, and then pounce when there are only a few managers left.

Writer's Notes: From now on, you can expect updates every six days.

Update 9

Years: 0, Months: 9, Days: 267

And so a new month dawns in 60 to One – but two of our managers only witnessed the first day of it with their clubs. Italy has decided to depose two of its managers, and, after a 0-3 home defeat by Juventus, the Cagliari board decided that they had had enough of Neppo Monster and sacked the Englishman, who had won just four games during his tenure. On the same day, Lecce travelled to Olimpico, and a 2-0 win for Super Lampard’s team meant that Torino manager dafuge got his marching orders. Lampard went on to lose his next two games before a 2-1 win over Napoli.

Clark Aitken’s Roma are still top of Serie A, despite winning only one game this month. They won in their two cup competitions this month, both two-legged ties, but Ben Cee’s Inter, who won three and drew one this month, are gaining on them as the gap is slashed to seven points. There are nine games left and Aitken hopes to sustain some form in order to close out the season.

Meanwhile, of the three sides in the Italian drop zone, only one has its original manager. Mathias Brunckhorst lies in the middle of that mess, in 19th, and suffered two 1-3 defeats this month. However, they turned the score around in playing Tyler Burrows’s Udinese, and drew their final game 0-0. However, Brunckhorst is Insecure. Theo Stigarakis’s Catania sit just outside the relegation zone, with Pasquale Marino’s Torino two points behind.

Over in England, never mind the sackings of two managers, there was only one thing on people’s minds on March 1st. Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United faced Rafa Benítez’s Liverpool at Wembley for the League Cup crown. The Rwandan had already won two competitions and finished as runner-up in another, yet for Liverpool this was a matter of restoring pride after Jeremy English’s disastrous tenure. No goals came until extra time, when Cristiano Ronaldo put the Red Devils in front. However, Ryan Babel levelled through a penalty and Liverpool went on to win 5-4 on penalties. But Manchester United have the consolation of being 10 places higher in the league than Liverpool, 1st to the Reds’ 11th. With three wins out of four this month, Jobson soars towards the crown, and only a few more wins will be needed, surely.

Tom Smith’s Arsenal are in second place, and they played two games this month, both of which were won by one-goal margins. Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough visited The Emirates where they were given a 2-3 defeat. Arsenal also progressed in the Champions League, our next focus of attention.

There were eight spots in the next round, and ten of our managers competing for them. Three would have to drop out, at least, and the other seven would join either Bayern Munich or Dynamo Kiev in the next round. Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea secured a 4-1 aggregate victory over Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal, secured with a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge. With two 1-0 wins, Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United knocked out Juventus, and Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid lost out to Benítez’s revitalised Liverpool. Italian champions Roma got through past Sporting CP, while Barcelona had the biggest win, 4-1 away and 4-0 at home against Celtic. Arsenal, Inter and Dynamo Kiev are also through to the next round.

In Spain, we lost another manager. Despite having been unbeaten in the month, a 1-1 draw away to Louis van Gaal’s Athletic was the end of the line for Jack Browne, whose contract was terminated after reports that the players had lost confidence in him. He had won just over half of his games at Sevilla, with a quarter lost and a quarter drawn, but sitting four places below their predicted position of 3rd with 11 games to go made the chairman pull the trigger.

Real Madrid lead the league by a whopping 10 points, and Lucas Volman won all four games this month, disregarding that Liverpool result in the Champions League. Behind him is Barcelona, and then Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal, who won three and drew one this month. They also progressed to the Spanish Cup final despite a second-leg defeat to Phill Ewles’s Valladolid, where they will face the titans of Real Madrid. Valencia, managed by Lawrence Lazewski, follow in fourth, but had an indifferent month but progressed in the UEFA Cup. Sirus Lannock’s Málaga are bottom, but it is where they are expected to finish and Lannock is Stable.

Over in England for the tale of Brucie Bonus, whose West Brom side sit eighth in the Premier League. This month they won all three games, including a 1-0 win over holders Manchester United.

In the FA Cup, the Sixth Round was a dull concoction. After claiming the scalp of Manchester City in the last round, Robert Boyle’s Blackburn did it again with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United, the only one to be decided without a replay. The other matches all ended 1-1, but Arsenal smashed their local rivals Tottenham 4-0 in the replay at the Emirates, while Chelsea knocked out Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton at Stamford Bridge. Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke were eliminated on penalties by Javier Aguirre’s Portsmouth in a match that saw three men sent off. In the end the result went the right way as Stoke had failed to threaten in the replay at the Britannia.

There was also some minimal cup action in Italy, as Inter beat Lord Weeman’s Napoli 2-0 away and Roma beat Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus 2-1. They will have to wait almost another month to conclude these two-legged ties. In the league, James Salter’s Reggina are 15th after a win, a draw and two losses this month, and Mikael Schøler’s Bologna are one place above them, failing to win this month. Genoa, managed by Cardio Vascular, are in 9th, with two wins, a draw and a loss this month, including a 2-0 victory over Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria. Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan are chasing down the top two but are eight points adrift of Inter, yet they won three and lost one this month. They also progressed to the UEFA Cup’s Quarter Final, joined there by only one of our managers, Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia, although Joaquín Caparrós’s Sevilla are also in the hat. Fiorentina and Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid fell at the hurdle here, losing to Valencia and Benfica respectively. Valencia and A.C. Milan will meet in the next round, guaranteeing one and only one manager in the semis.

Saul Goode and Joe Seddon are trying to avoid relegation, at Osasuna and Getafe respectively. Osasuna won one game this month and Getafe won two, which gives some hope considering that their nearest competition, Louis van Gaal’s Athletic and Maz Armley’s Racing, failed to win this month. This time next month we may find some teams relegated already, so the next few games are critical. Nine of our managers are under pressure and could soon join the six already sacked. January saw one dismissal, February saw three and March saw three, so how many will be going next month? There’s only one way to find out.

Manager of the Update

The award this month goes to;

Brucie Bonus, West Brom

who won three games out of three. His fellow Englishman Tom Smith was also in the running after four wins with two cup progressions, but his month, unlike Bonus’s, was not perfect, and Bonus has the extra bow of having a Very Secure job, rather than simply Secure. Lucas Volman did well but lost in the Champions League and Inter had an unbeaten month. But a 100% record, job security and being nine places above expectation earn Bonus this bonus.

Happy with second in the table, and nice to see me considered for Manager of the Update. A secure job status looks like I should be keeping my job for at least a little while longer, unless things go badly quickly.

Update 10

Years: 0, Months: 10, Days: 297

May has rolled around and the summer is perilously close, with the conclusion of the football season even closer. Who knows, maybe we can get through this first season with fifty of our original sixty managers surviving? Numbers only went down by one in the month of April, leaving fifty-two. However, it is the end of the line for Joe Seddon, who parted company with his Getafe team leaving them 18th, four places below their predicted position and just inside the relegation zone. The club had only been out of the drop zone for three matches, and two of those were the opening two. A 1-2 loss at home to Sirus Lannock’s Málaga was the last straw for the Getafe board. He joins Jack Browne and David Machine as Spanish casualties of the sack race.

The remaining managers are just short of their 300th day in charge of their clubs, and in England, Maurice Jobson’s Manchester United are on the verge of a third successive title. Despite a somewhat bizarre 0-4 defeat to Wigan this month, the Rwandan manager’s team need just seven more points, at the most, to secure the title. But perhaps bigger news comes from across town, where Liam Ferguson’s Manchester City are looking to break into the top four, the first time that has been achieved by a non Big Four club in four years. It is all but guaranteed, and if it weren’t to happen, Tottenham would take the place anyway. They faced two difficult results this month, with two consecutive 1-2 away defeats, but they had started off the month with two wins, and ended it by defeating Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton 4-1, to keep title hopes too alive. Bolton are 17th, and precariously close to going down, yet Rimmer is Stable. His side failed to win this month, and could only draw 2-2 against Wigan, two places below them.

Throughout our three countries, cup finals are all set up and scheduled, and the two opponents are decided. In Italy for example, the Italian Cup Semi Final Second Leg took place this month, and it was little surprise which sides made it through to the big showdown. With a 2-1 away win over Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus, Roma secured a 4-2 aggregate win, and Inter defeated Napoli 3-0 on aggregate. Clark Aitken’s Roma are another title-chasing team who are just seven points from making it a reality. They struggled to two 1-1 draws in their first two games of this month, but it was not all bad news as the second was against Inter themselves. Finally, James Salter’s Reggina, who lie in fifteenth and won just the one game this month, against Super Lampard’s Lecce, were seen off 3-0.

Mikey Twigge’s Palermo had a decent and unbeaten month, with three draws and two wins. James Salter and Super Lampard were again involved, with Reggina beaten 2-1 and Lecce 3-2. Genoa, under the watchful eye of Scotsman Cardio Vascular, lost 0-1 (to Roma), won 1-0 (against Torino) and then followed it up with three 0-0 draws. Six points was a good return on this month was some tough fixtures, and the team sit in 9th. bermybhoy's Atalanta are in 12th and are doing pretty well. Bouncing back from a 0-3 defeat in March, they were unbeaten this month, with three 1-1 draws, one 0-0 and a 1-0 victory over Mikael Schøler’s Bologna.

While in England and Italy the gap between first and second is six points, in Spain, the position of Lucas Volman’s Real Madrid is a lot more secure. Although Barcelona have a game in hand, the Spanish Giants Real are 13 points clear. Just three more would make it inevitable, and whether that comes in their next game against Numancia, or by Barcelona squandering their game in hand, the Real Madrid fans won’t mind a third consecutive title. Just like English table-toppers Manchester United, Real Madrid suffered a 0-4 defeat this month, but with three wins and a draw too they managed a successful thirty days. Their close rivals Barcelona also lost, to Joaquín Caparrós’s Sevilla.

In European competition, the Champions League races towards in grand finale in Rome. This month, the Quarter Final and the first leg of the Semi Final took place, and Andre da Conceiçao’s Chelsea were sent packing in the round of eight by Rafa Benítez’s Liverpool, newly invigorated since the departure of Jeremy English. Maurice Jobson ousted a courageous Inter Milan side, who fought it to 2-3 before crashing out with a 0-2 defeat at Old Trafford. Tom Smith’s Arsenal saw off Italian leaders Roma 2-1 on aggregate, while the last remaining side not ever managed by one of our own, Dynamo Kiev, lost to Barcelona. Things are close, 1-1, between Manchester United and Liverpool in the Semi Final, and it looks set to be an all-English final, with Arsenal holding a 2-0 lead over Barcelona.

The UEFA Cup carried some hope of one of our greedy managers not winning it and, as was inevitable due to the draw, one of our managers was sent home in the Quarter Final. Will de Mote’s A.C. Milan, third in Serie A, went out 2-1 on aggregate to Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia, third in La Liga. Yet Valencia are down 1-2 from the first leg of their Semi Final tie with Ajax, while Sevilla, free from the tyranny of Jack Browne, hold the same lead over Werder Bremen.

In England now, and Martin Bojangles’s Hull are looking to secure a position above the bottom three places of the English Premier League. Sadly, this month didn’t do it for them, as they lost four of their five matches, although they did beat second-placed Manchester City 2-1 to get their wins tally into double figures. The lowest team that are secure is Bryan McGuinness’s Everton, who are in 9th place having sold a lot of their big stars. Their only win this month was against Wigan, but they are guaranteed Premier League football next season. Tim Aubel’s Fulham cannot be so sure, as they are 18th and looking like a possible Championship team next season. But the Cottagers can take some hope out of two wins this month, over Sunderland and Blackburn, even though April started badly with losses to two of the EPL sides rejuvenated under new managers, West Ham and Portsmouth.

Moving up to the north-east, from the bottom up, Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough are in 14th place, and won two of their games this month, against Chelsea and Aston Villa no less. Nakano is currently Stable. Scott Tysoe’s Sunderland are in 7th, and they had a hot and cold month of April, losing two games heavily, but beating Everton, West Brom and Blackburn with comfort. Tysoe is Very Secure, no surprise considering his lofty position of eight places above Sunderland’s predicted position. Maybe it’s because he like strawberry ice cream! Or maybe not. His neighbour, Shazad Ali’s Newcastle, amassed twelve points this month, and sits above in 6th, losing once, but to Chelsea. They did it the hard way though, winning each of the four matches by one goal. Ali is currently Secure, and has the English Premier League Manager of the Month award to boot.

In the FA Cup this month, Robert Boyle’s Blackburn continued their sensational form, form that is not repeated in the Premier League, where they lost all four games this month. The Ewood Park team took their third top four scalp, with Chelsea this time the victims. However, the fourth and final member of the current top four awaits in the Final, as Tom Smith’s Arsenal beat Javier Aguirre’s Portsmouth to progress.

Moving back to Spain to bring the month of April to an end, and Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca find themselves marooned in 12th place in La Liga. They did win one game this month, 3-0 over Neilio’s Almería, but they lost a whole host more, including heavy 1-3 defeats to Málaga and Louis van Gaal’s Athletic. At Betis, Wobill Luman is Insecure as he fights to stave off relegation, and four draws and two losses this month has him in 14th place. Numancia, under the care of Jellybean Man, are 11th, with the highlight this month being the 2-0 victory, one of two, over Cristobal Blanco’s Recreativo.

But the real success story in Spain is from Riazor, the home of R.C. Deportivo de La Coruña S.A.D.. They are managed by Neji Hyuuga, and a 1-1 away draw to Getafe, whose manager Joe Seddon went on to be fired, was their only blip this month. They defeated high-flying Valencia 2-0 to open the month, and after that draw, Málaga and Numancia were seen off 1-0 to get back to winning ways. A sixteen-point haul was secured with wins over Athletic and Recreativo, 2-1s, and Deportivo are currently in 5th, two places above early media expectations.

But there is no failure without success, and perhaps the boards currently paying Brettney Joven, Mark Cator, Robert Boyle, Andre da Conceiçao, Neilio, Wobill Luman, Saul Goode and Maz Armley are just biding their time, waiting for the season to end before giving their managers the sack. Who knows, maybe relegation will hammer the nail in the coffin for some, but for others, winning or losing those important cup finals and semifinals that come up in the next month, may make or break them. No one has to go, but we all know someone will!

Manager of the Update

It’s been tough this month, but the award goes to;

Neji Hyuuga, Deportivo

for achieving his sixteen points more efficiently than Tom Smith. Smith struggled in domestic league fixtures, the only place where actual physical points could be picked up, although in his eight fixtures he did pick up the equivalent of sixteen points. Yet Hyuuga did it in six. Despite a cup final and a 2-0 first leg lead over Barcelona in the Champions League, much more could have been achieved by the Englishman whereas the Deportivo boss was at almost full efficiency. Shazad Ali, who lost just one game, and A.C. Milan’s Will de Mote were also in contention, as was bermybhoy, whose Atalanta team had a bizarre unbeaten month.
