Still looking alright in the table? Probably at least a few points ahead of the playout places by my estimation.

A win vs Sambendettese would of put me 4 points ahead of them and 1 game left so I would of been safe, instead I need to win last game and hope results go my way or ill be in relegation playout

Season 2012-13 Review:

Following my sacking from Krymteplytsya at the end of the previous season I was appointed Manager of Avangard Kursk in Russia, I spent £100,000+ on players we had a good start and then a bad run of results saw my name mentioned to be sacked so i jumped ship on 6th october 2012. This Proved to be a good move as they were relegated at the end of the season. Could i Have kept them up? We will never know.

Avangard Kursk Final Table

Then on the 22nd of November 2012 I took over the Vacant Rimni job. They were struggling both on and off the pitch a midtable team down in the relegation zone. I made the choice to use this season as a transitional period, I got rid of all the Overage overpaid players and deadwood and as the under20s were full of 4.5*/5* potential rated players I decided to throw them in the deep end as well as bringing in a few young players to improve the squad.

Transfers In:

EOSsignings.jpg

My record at Rimni

PL24 W9 D6 L9 GD-2 PTS33

Final League Table:

EOStable.jpg

As you can see the midtable between both playoffs zones is quite small I'm confident we can get in the promotion playoffs next season.

Players:

EOSplayerstats.jpg

Francesco Morga: Top Scorer 10 in 18 when I took over he was rotting in reserves. hes my 5th best striker according to reports but when I had an injury crisis I chucked him in and he repaid me and hasnt been out of team since.

Matteo Ton: My Rock at the back consitent solid and never injured. made most apperances this season and will be named captain next season. He also made team of the year

teamofyear.jpg

Giovanni Novelli: I have already mentioned he broke the record as youngest player, his potential is massive and he made his 1st start in the final game of the season and ran the show. massive hopes for this lad.

Gianmarco Zigoni: My star signing but hardly played always injured (ive linked his injuries) hopefully next season he will shine

Overview:

I did what I set out to do, I have put the club in a place to push on, when I took over they were overpaying rubbish players and now I have a young squad with massive potential to push on Playoffs is the aim next season I'll be disappointed if I dont get there.

Interesting career mate, KUTGW. And if you do have any extra money lying around, please send it to Brazil. They will be put into good use. :D

Our good start has continued the new players have gelled well with the players from last season, the young GK and CM who i started the season with have stamped their names into the team keeping out more experienced players so all is going well. hopefully we can keep this run going.

Player of the Month

octpom.jpg

Giovanni Novelli - He came to prominance towards the end of last season after becoming the youngest player to ever play for Rimni but this month he has shown why he is the 1st name on my team sheet with solid performances. I see a future captain in him.

Montly Review

October saw our unbeaten run come to an end, however we are still in a great league postion and into the 3rd round of the cup. I was also glad to pick up a win after 2 defeats out of 3. Hopefully November we can get back on a good run and into the playoff spots,

Yeah that was my thoughts, My Rimni contract ends this summer so if I miss out on playoffs I may consider my postion.

I always feel if I stay at a club too long without success I never get anywhere. If I miss out of playoffs I may go or give it 1 more season. Finances are down again

After a great first half to the season since the winter break we are throwing it all away, we are on a bad run and if it continues in April we will miss out on the playoffs. we have 7 games left I think we need 5 wins to grab that 6th place

We have blown it a bad second half of the season and we missed the chance to make the playoffs, a big improvement on last season but not where I want to be

Contract Offer

I delayed the offer until the end of the season because I'm not sure what I'm gonna do, any suggestions would be welcome

Monthly review

Another disappointing month, the 1st half of the season really raised expecations maybe unrealstically but in the end we fell short
