It was and I got the feeling it was then or a long wait and we were getting in debt more and more, alot of key players refusing to take pay cuts and wanted big raises so I thought it was time to go

Bury Finances

The Finances are not good. When I took over the wage budget was decreased the following day and we were over budget £5500 a week on wages alone.

The club is £1.58million in debt so the 1st plan is to try and help cut that. I would like to be in the black next summer.

The plan is to get rid of players I don't need then ask players that are staying to take a lower wage.

Then I'll be arranging so money spinning friendlies, For myself to progress I need to get this club on a stable footing again.

Money Spinning Friendlies

We need money and we need it fast. I'm hoping these friendlies will bring us close to £700k

Job Done! what a season! playoff spot was way beyond anything expected of us. the question is can we do it and achieve promotion. I have delayed the job offer until the end of the season, I intend to accept it just want to know what division we are in so I may be due a payrise

Unfortunately after my last post I had to go to work a night shift, so the final will have to wait until I wake up tomorrow, my two strikers are injured so I dunno where goals will come from as 3rd and 4th choice haven't scored this season. But I'll give it a go. I'll update straight away after

2014/15 End of season review

Bury - League Two

Competitions

League Two - A Great season we performed beyond all expectations and heart break on the final day showed we weren't good enough realistically to go up but it gives us a great platform

Playoff Final - A Boring final which Dag & Red dominated, So close

Fa Cup - Out first round, would of liked a money spinning run but my squad was too small to cope.

Carling Cup - Same as Fa Cup

Johnston Paint Trophy - tried to go for this one, reached second round then out

Key Players

Filip Mentel - Played every game this season, Good Keeper but if want to be serious title challengers may need replacing

Adam Jackson - Intially Signed on loan, Made permenant in January for Free. Rock at the back

Romain Gasmi - My Star Player made the PFA team of the year. Broke the clubs asisst record.

Tony Watt - Top Scorer With 10. Not even goal but fingers crossed he can double that next season

Nacho Huertas - Loan Signing from Liverpool who played "in the hole" behind Watt and ran games. He was missed in Playoff Final.

Club Information

Finances

Romain Gasmi makes Pfa Team of year

Season Overview

An Remarkble season, We now have to kick on. The aim has to be promotion next season. I know where I need to improve so will be setting out straight away to reinforce my squad. Heartbreak on the final day has given me the movitation to do one better next season.

The day after the Playoff Final I Agreed a new 1 year deal.

That was the plan but the board cut the wage budget from 14k per week to 9.5k. So I'm having too get rid of high earners and I don't have the money to replace them. I'm searching the loan market for 4 players to replace them with no wages or fees

Transfers Out

Transfers In

Signings

Denis - Loan Signing from Manchester City He's an AM that my scout said is better than Nachos Huertas who done amazing for us last season.

Leon Driscoll - Loan Signing from Wigan, Striker who has come in to challenge Tony Watt for the 1 striker spot.

Andrea Cominelli - Italian GK who i brought in to replace Mentel, He has an higher possible Potential and a third of the wages

Kyriakos Sokratous - My weakness last season was Left back so I'm hoping Kyriakos can fix it.

Pre-season Review

As I mentioned in a previous post my wage budget was cut and we are already in massive debt so this summer I cleared the squad of 8 players who I thought were overpaid and I had a youngster with potential to replace. Also Managed to sell Lennon and Mentel for abit of cash. I've brought in 2 loans and 2 permenant deals. The squad is down to its bare bones. Ive also loaned out 4 players who need games and I've managed to get all their wages paid aswell so that will certainly help. I would love to be fighting for promotion but I think due to a lack of money we will struggle. We will have to wait and see.
