Disappointed with the Challenge Cup semi final defeat to SD2 side Ayr.

Out of the Scottish Cup 4th Round to SPL leaders Rangers.

A great run in the Scottish League Cup gives us a place in the final against Rangers. A massive ask but who knows!

going strong in the league

Not bad at all, main issue now is ive not used squad rotation much so a few players in need of a rest. May have to pick and choose fixtures for some of my players although a ten point lead gives me that chance.

There we go, promotion to the SPL. Fantastic season all round, decent defence, scoring forwards and the middle of the park packed with guys willing to run all day.

Only decision now is whether to stay at the end of the season or move on somewhere new? Hmmm.

Well after not checking the terms of my contract and thinking it expired at the end of June i clicked continue and bang, June 1st:

SCOTT RESIGNS

Stupid old me.

Back to job hunting and nothing around so far.

Following the Euros a job at SPL side St Mirren came up, but i was overlooked until

july20-irelandjob.png

and then

So SPL or International management or both???

Did you not fancy managing Livi in the SPL?

Really did want a crack at the SPL but part of me wanted to see what jobs came up after season ended before I committed. I was really hoping the Blackburn job came up, a club struggling in League One. Thinking the contract ended at end of June thought i was safe to reject a couple of contract extensions but it ended on May 31st. Should have checked it but just continued the game, the next news item flashed up saying i had resigned. Gutted really.

SPL

Pre Season 2020/21

Here i am, in the SPL but not with the club i wanted to be with...

As it goes HAFC have finished 11th in the previous two seasons, surviving by just a point last year.

Pre-season has been poor followed by good. Two goalless draws followed a 1-0 loss to Man City. That happend before i came in.

My two friendies featured a 1-1 draw with Preston and a 5-0 win over former club Darlington.

As for the squad i am generally happy for the upcoming season so here it is:

aug20-hammysquad.png

Since the start of my managerial career HAFC have had seasons in:

SPL - 3 (11th, 11th and 12th)

SD1 - 5 (1st, 1st, 3rd, 3rd and 10th)

SD2 - 1 (1st)

The club has gone through 3 managers previous to me:

Billy Reid until March 2012 (sacked)

Jimmy Calderwood until May 2019 (retired)

Jim McIntyre until July 2020 (left for St Mirren)

The clubs best run in the cups:

Scottish Cup - semi final twice

League Cup - 3rd aet once

Challenge Cup - 3rd on pens once

Inconsistant start but fairly happy so far. Celtic defeat was tough, 90th winner for them but overall only the Hibs game has seen a poor performance. Anything better than 11th is good for this club.

Sad to be out of the club already, as we were the better side but if you cant finish from 12 yards your not going to go far.

The next couple of moths sees us visit Rangers, Celtic and former club Livingston.

So far so good. Nicely placed with some decent results. Defeat wise i always struggle at former clubs so defeat to Livingston was expected as was the loss to Rangers. Sadly though we were battered by Dundee Utd, a side i have been linked with should they change manager in the summer.

Looking to build off the field too and the board seem to agree

mar21-burnleyjob.png

Burnley are currently 9th in the Championship, 5 points from the play-offs with 9 to play.

A poor run of 6 points from 10 games cost Gordon Strachan his job.

The club has spent 6 years in the Premier League with former managers being Martin Jol and Kaka

Going for it?

Its a great little offer and the names that have had the hotseat before makes it more interesting. If the job came 6 weeks ago i would have rejected straight away but given Hamilton poor form and the knowledge of some SPL players i think i can do a job at Turf Moor.

May have to sleep on it.

If you see no future for yourself in Scotland with Hamilton then it seems like the perfect offer considering the potential they have to go up

As you can tell i have left Hamilton for Burnley. It was too good a chance to turn down and the club is geared towards the Premier League.

Having only just taken over i have been in charge for just two games

Results:

Could not have wanted a better start, 12 goals, 6 points and now just 1 point from the play-offs.

The club has given me a good transfer budget of £14m and in the bank the club has £20m.

The club has agreed to improve youth facilities and also looking into buying Turf Moor.

As for the squad we have some decent youngsters along with experienced players

Very happy to be on the play-offs although form has dropped in the final three games. In fairness the only defeat was to QPR who went up as runners-up and one of the draws was against play-off rivals Brighton

Of the three sides in the Play-Offs Brighton are a side we know well given the recent league game. Fully expect West Ham to see off Huddersfield.

Well done on a quick promotion!

Thank you. Surprised by the quality of the squad to be honest.

August

Not the worst of starts for the Premier new boys. Decent home point against Eveton with former Evertonian Hallam Hope grabbing our leveller. Away to Villa was tough but a second half strike from Mdluli looked good for us until both Craig Easton and Stefano Giuliani were sent off after 81 mins. Both of Villa's next goals came in the 88th and 90+2 minutes. The month ended with a tight home win. Player of the Year Scott Dann fired us ahead and the winner from Sinclair came just two minutes after the Stoke goal.

League Cup:

aug21-burnlgecup.png

What should have been an easy match at League 2 Rochdale proved to be far from that. An og from Whetton gave us a half time lead until the same player levelled for Dale. Into extra time and the host scored after 105+1 mins and we needed Dann (108) and Passarino (112) to put us into Round 3 against my former club Doncaster Rovers.

You would certainly think i would be happy with that month but no im not. Despite being unbeaten and picking a fanastic win up at Tottenham in all three league games we surrendered 2-0 leads. In the first two it cost us points but luckily in the Spurs game we managed to strike a third, killer blow.

Comfortable home win over my former side sets up a trip to Championship side Derby County.

Once again we blew a 2-0 lead over Newcastle but struck a vital third. Bottom club QPR were easily dispatched before defeat to Man City. The first time we have lost a game which was 11 v 11. The month ended with a real back to the wall job at Anfield. Liverpool needed a leveller from Wickham with just two minutes to go.

League Cup:

Tough win at a Championship club sees us host another Championship side Bolton in the last eight. Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City and Tottenham still remain in the competition.

A good month all round. The bad stuff was a woeful defeat to Hull but that was squeezed between three good wins. We went back to our old tricks against Blackpool, dropping a 2-0 lead. This is a habit we need to break.

League Cup:

nov21-burnlgecup.png

Its all about the Championship again. Beat Bolton nicely and the semi final draw gives us Coventry, also of the Championship. The other semi final is Cardiff vs Manchester City.

Finallt this move the media were very nice in linking me to the vacant job at Tottenham Hotspur

Great career, this. Lots of moving about. What an amazing cup final that was! Good work with Hamilton and Burnley since then.

I suspect you're getting close to one of the big jobs now.

A bit more moving than i would have liked to be honest. Wish i had paid more attention to my Livingston contract!

That cup final was awful, i don't think i could take it again. Was leaping from my seat thinking we had it won then punching the sofa when we lost!!

Pleased and massively surprised by what happening at Burnley, expected to miss play-offs and the squad to be decent, not good.

As for top job both Spurs and Newcastle have had vacancies recently that the press have linked me with but denied both. Very happy at Turf Moor for now, particually with the Lge Cup semi final coming up.

A nightmare run during December has dropped us off the pace but still in a good position. In fairness to my team though six of the seven defeats were to teams above us. My worry was lack of goals so as soon as the transfer window opened we snapped up Italian Marco Sampaolesi. The 19 year old has joined after being released from Parma. So far he has struck 5 in 8 in all comps.

Two good wins puts us into Round 5 where Championship side Bolton await. That will make it 9 games in a row in the cup this year without playing a Premier League team.

During our poor run in December i was subject to alot of media attention reguarding jobs. Having already ignored Spurs and Newcastle rumours along came these
