Apologies, haven't posted in this thread for a while.

West Brom finished their season in a very respectable position of 10th, much better than what I was thinking would happen!!!

Shame that my end of season status of 'very secure' has fallen back down to stable during the offseason.... have to start all over the again! :D

The board are so fickle!!

Okay, these next few weeks are going to be pretty busy for me. I'll be trying to make updates pretty regularly but you should understand if I don't. I'll aim to get one out every weekend: I should have a good amount of spare time on Saturday mornings.

Update 13

Years: 1, Months: 13, Days: 389

The remaining forty-eight managers successfully reached that one-year milestone, while preparing for their second season in charge with transfers and friendly activity. The biggest transfer news of the summer is the one that will be covered first, and Will de Mote made a small fortune by sending Marek Hamsik to Lord Weeman’s Napoli for £37M. de Mote raisd a further £4.3M from selling Massimo Ambrosini to Sevilla, and loaning Philippe Senderos to Lars Tommersen’s Villarreal. Of course Senderos had just been secured from Arsenal, this for £7.25M, and de Mote also spent £23.5M on two Brazilians from two Ukrainian clubs. The pre-season had also kicked off well for the Dutchman, with his team winning three away games by a combined score of 10-0.

The earlier rounds of the UEFA Cup took place this month, July, with only one team of interest in it. Da Hoover Man’s Sampdoria secured an 8-0 aggregate victory of Vojvodina of Serbia, while Liverpool and Sevilla also won their ties. Gladbach of Germany were beaten 1-0 by Sampdoria in a friendly, and Da Hoover Man continued his tinkering into the new month, with the most notable transfer being the £22M one of Antonio Cassano to Ben Cee’s Inter. Man also brought in several players from Italian clubs, all for £4.2M or less. Cassano joins several other players in being a new face at Inter. He was the highest spend but Cee also brought in Hatem Ben Arfa from Marseille for £15.5M and Dynamo Kiev’s Taras Mykhalyk for £11M, as well as others. Patrick Vieira is possibly the highest-profile name to go, for £1.4M to Lyon, but of course there were more money-making transfers out, including Cristian Chivu to Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia, and Nicolás Burdisso to Rafael Benítez’s Liverpool.

Andre da Conceiçao and Chelsea also brought in a player from the Milan-based club, Dejan Stankovic for £10.5M, but their highest spend was £14.25M for Manchester City’s Pablo Zabaleta. They raised £15.5M in outgoing transfers and also brought in Kevin Thomson from Championship Wigan for £10.5M. Funnily enough, Manchester City didn’t spend that much money, and their books were almost balanced. Demba Ba came from Hoffenheim and Ramires from Cruzeiro for a combined sum of £27M, but £22.5M was raised, the majority of it from that Zabaleta transfer. Liam Ferguson has only one more friendly to play, after scoring eleven and conceding none in five games so far, including a 2-0 win over James Ridley’s Siena.

Across the other side of town, Maurice Jobson and Manchester United have been busy on the transfer front, and have made oodles of money from wheeling and dealing. The Portuguese Nani went to Barcelona for £28.5M, which alone covered the cost of incoming transfers, of which there were three, the highest being Charles N’Zogbia from Wigan for £9.25M after Brettney Joven’s successor sought to have a clear-out, and a money-making clear-out at that! Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough are slightly down in terms of profits, but they made four solid acquisitions including Jonathan Spector from West Ham, while Jason Steele went to Hibernian for £230k. Elsewhere in the north, Shazad Ali’s Newcastle made a £28M loss as they sought to reinforce their squad. Again, Wigan were among the receivers as the Magpies swooped up Lee Cattermole for £8M. Liam Lawrence moved for £5.25M from Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke, who are in the Championship, and who made a profit of £1.75M, spending and earning in similar amounts. The Lawrence deal was their highest outwards, and their highest inwards was that of Tommy Smith, for £2.4M from Watford. The other Championship side, Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton, tallied up £18M selling many players, including Andy O’Brien to Atalanta for £1.7M.

bermybhoy's team made several transfers this month, including buying out the co-ownership deal of Davide Succi from Ravenna and Mikey Twigge’s Palermo, for £2.7M to each. They also started off their pre-season campaign well, with a 3-0 victory over Hannover. Their rivals Fiorentina made a nice income from transfers, and while James Salter’s Reggina bought two players, Inter were the biggest contributors, spending £9.5M on Zdravko Kuzmanovic. Fiorentina did spend some money, but their loss in manpower could be a problem, as Ben Taylor’s team lost 1-3 to Schalke in a pre-season friendly. Cardio Vascular’s Genoa have had a good start to the pre-season with a 3-0 win in Düsseldorf, and the £6.5M sale of Pablo Osvaldo to Bologna helps with the finances, but wasn’t their only transfer.

In Spain, the big two did not do much, although there was the Nani transfer, and Lucas Volman raised £13M by selling Rafael van der Vaart to Liverpool. It was the smaller sides that had the more interesting month, and Wobill Luman’s Betis raised £17.25M and didn’t spend a penny. Villarreal bought two players, and Branko Ilic went to Andy Morton’s Sporting for £1.9M. Valencia and Lazio also took some of the Betis squad. Despite this, Luman started his pre-season with an impressive 6-0 win. Phill Ewles’s Valladolid raised £5.5M selling Pedro León to Atlético Madrid, while Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca have already completed 50% of their pre-season after just one game, wich they won 2-0. They also made a £3.5M profit from two outgoing transfers.

Back into England, and focusing on the three relevant sides (the other is West Ham) in the bottom four, being there for no reason other than their name. Leo Dodge is keeping a low profile at White Hart Lane, spending £2.6M on Matty Taylor from Bolton but not making any other transfers, and with an indifferent pre-season so far, including a 2-3 defeat by Racing. Scott Tysoe, whose Sunderland had a good season last year, has spent some big bucks, £11M, while selling Michael Chopra to Cardiff for £3M in one of two outgoing transfers. Finally, Brucie Bonus’s West Brom have had a fantastic start to the pre-season, with two 1- and two 2-0 wins, and made £900k by selling a player to Wolves.

With the season starting next month, the excitement is about to increase, and there will soon be four trophies to go for: with a Spanish battle in the European Super Cup, Barcelona and Valencia, and domestic Super Cups: Manchester United and Tom Smith’s Arsenal in the Community Shield, the Roma-Inter showdown in Italy and Villarreal facing Real Madrid in Spain. Stay tuned!

Manager of the Update

My manager of the update award goes to;

Wobill Luman, Betis

for making plenty of money and winning his first friendly in style! Brucie Bonus had a shout, as he also spun a profit and had four good opening games, and Liam Ferguson came close for almost balancing his books!

Why does job security always reset at the end of the season? It's like the achievements of last season don't matter no more! I noticed this on Dafuges challenge - I took my Heybridge Swifts team up to League 2 (highest ever position and all that) and then following a dodgy start, I was under pressure. Err, hello? I got us this far with sod all money and sod all players in four seasons, give me a chance ...

It's like saying that Sir Alex Ferguson is stable every August. Would Man United sack him if they found themselves in mid-table in October? Course not!

Anyway, onto Season 2, excellent updates Canvey!! as usual. Hope I don't miss a week and find myself out like I did in The Apprentice -- am still not happy! :D

Losing to Schalke :(. Hopefully not a sign of things too come. Don't think I'll budge from stable for a while though..

Nani deal is a shock tbh.

Update 14

Years: 1, Months: 14, Days: 420

The season has begun and already clubs are excelling towards the top of the table. Life is good for Maurice Jobson and Lucas Volman, with the Rwandan second in the Premier League and August’s EPL Manager of the Month. He also found success in the Community Shield, a 2-0 win over Arsenal, and finished the transfer window with an £18M profit, bolstered of course by the sale of Nani. As a result of this, Jobson’s Job Status is Secure. Volman is also Secure at Real Madrid, despite an opening draw against Tom Hamilton’s Mallorca, but a 3-0 aggregate win over Villarreal in the Supercopa de España keeps his position very safe, that is even with a late transfer of £13.25M, making him a small loss for the window. Seeing as it is 650 times smaller than Real’s loss for the same window in real life, it’s possible to see why he is Secure! On the other hand, Osasuna’s Saul Goode is already beginning to feel the pressure of a new season, as he started his campaign in the Liga adelante with a 1-1 draw at home to Gimnàstic. His healthy transfer window profit should mean little in his ability to cope and keep his job in Spain’s second division.

There has been further action in the UEFA Cup, where teams from smaller natiosn such as Montenegro, Lithuania and Bosnia-Herzegovina find their season shaped as early as July or August. As we know, Sampdoria progressed to the Fourth Qualifying Round in the last update, where they have been drawn against Loko (Sofia). They were joined in this round by several other clubs of interest to us. Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid managed a 7-2 thrashing of Finns HJK, and they started off their league campaign with a 2-2 draw. Another Scandinavian side was dismissed in the form of Elfsborg, who couldn’t reply to any of the six goals knocked past them by Ben Taylor’s Fiorentina. Neji Hyuuga’s Deportivo beat ZTE of Hungary 8-0 but perhaps the most impressive tie was the 10-1 thrashing of Xanthi by Lisa Jeffries’s Juventus. There was also success for the English sides, with Leo Dodge’s Tottenham and Shazad Ali’s Newcastle beating Slaven Belupo and AaB respectively. The teams await the group stage draw.

There has been minimal activity in Italy, with just one game played, and it’s little surprise that Ben Cee’s Inter are top, after having beaten Mikey Twigge’s Palermo 3-1. Juventus and Roma are not far behind, having achieved the same scoreline, but Inter won the battle between them and Roma in the Italian Super Cup, with a 2-0 victory. At the bottom of the pile is James Ridley, whose Siena team lost 0-2 to Fiorentina, although they beat Grosseto 3-1 in the First Leg of the Italian Cup Third Qualifying Round, and made a £4M profit in the transfer window. One place above them are Palermo, Genoa and bermybhoy’s Atalanta, who were the three sides losing 1-3 to the top three. Super Lampard’s Lecce are definitely consistent, hanging about in mid-table after a 1-1 draw with Theo Stigarakis’s Catania in the opening game. They (Lecce) also won their first cup match of the season and made a £1.1M window profit including the sale this month of Edinho to Sporting CP for £4.9M.

The English Premier League is a bit further down the line, with three games played. As stated, Manchester United are second, but it is their rivals, Liam Ferguson’sManchester City, who sit in top spot after clean-sheet wins over Ipswich, West Ham and West Brom. They also managed to spin a profit by selling some fringe players in the window, including Valeri Bojinov to Tim Aubel’s Fulham, who ended up costing the team £250k per appearance. Arsenal are the third team on full points, although either they or Manchester City will have to drop some as they meet in the next game. Liverpool have had another bad start to the season, which I’m sure will secretly please Jeremy English, their former manager, as they lost to West Ham, West Brom and Arsenal. Newcastle and Mark Cator’s Aston Villa make up the rest of the bottom three, on one point. New boys Crystal Palace, Ipswich and Birmingham occupy 13th to 15th, while Bryan McGuinness’s Everton are in 5th, with two draws and a win.

Back over to Spain, where the biggest transfer of the month was made by Neji Hyuuga, whose Deportivo side tallied a nice sum of £22M for the sale of Andrés Guardado to Arsenal. Cool Manager’s Atlético Madrid made a number of transfers inwards, including Felipe Melo from Juventus for £6M, and they made a £10.25M loss for the window. Ghanain Sadick Adams went to Fréderico Canvey’s Stoke for £65k, and the Potters have had a very bad start to their Championship campaign, sitting 22nd after four games, with a 3-2 win over Leicester their only league consolation. However, both Stockport and Derby were dispatched 3-0 in the League Cup First and Second Rounds respectively. Contrary to Stoke, Arnold J. Rimmer’s Bolton sit top of the Championship unbeaten, one of only three sides without a loss. Reading and Charlton were beaten 3-0 in the league, but the Wanderers suffered a reversal in the League Cup Second Round against Q.P.R. after a 5-0 win over Grimsby in the First.

In further League Cup news, Crystal Palace and Tim Aubel’s Fulham were the only Premier League sides to lose in the Second Round, the latter to Norwich. Ricky Nakano’s Middlesbrough beat Scunthorpe 2-0 away, while Mark Cator’s Aston Villa secured a convincing 4-0 win over Coventry, a scoreline matched by Blackburn who were under the new management of Harry Redknapp. Scott Tysoe and Sunderland beat MK Dons 3-0 while Martin Bojangles’s Hull beat Bristol Rovers 2-0. The Third Round ties won’t see any big guns meet, although there is the possibility of goals when Manchester United face Bristol City and there is a guarantee of Championship representation as Reading meet Sheffield United, and of League 1 representation as Norwich meet Southend. Plymouth and Oldham will also compete to join the Premier League sides in the Fourth Round.

The Champions League has finished Qualifying stages and the groups have been drawn. This month, Chelsea secured themselves a 7-0 aggregate win over Portugal’s Braga to reach the group stages, while Tyler Burrows’s Udinese beat Steaua 2-0 and Lars Tommersen beat Panathanaikos 5-1 to secure his Villarreal side progress. Once again, three of our managers are in the same group, them being Tommersen, Ben Cee and Inter and Liam Ferguson and Manchester City. Manchester United will have to face Real Madrid and Barcelona will have to face Udinese, while Arsenal and Lawrence Lazewski’s Valencia will also be meeting in the Group Stage. That all kicks of next month, as does the UEFA Cup Group Stage, the Carling Cup Third Round, the Copa del Ray Second Round, the Italian Cup Fourth Qualifying Round as well as twelve rounds of top level league matches in our three countries. On top of this, there’ll be international action, with the ambition of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Manager of the Update

This month the award goes reluctantly to;

Liam Ferguson, Manchester City.

Reluctantly because he had all the money to achieve his feats with. An immaculate league performance so far puts him top of the Premier League, and he made a profit for this month and overall! Arnold J. Rimmer’s good Championship start put him in the running, alongside the winners of the three super cups: Maurice Jobson, Lucas Volman or Ben Cee, or even Haowan Madridstas whose Barcelona side won the European Super Cup on penalties after a 0-0 draw with Valencia.
