When the holiday ended these were the available jobs.

The Celtic application was unsuccessful but was approached by Southampton, Sunderland, Hibernian & Kilmarnock, I wasn't

interested in the two Scottish clubs at this stage and don't want to manage in the EPL just yet, so all four were rejected.

Anyway Linfield got back to us and the career will start in Northern Ireland.

It has been a great start with 7 wins and 2 draws in the league. We made big gains on

Portadown and Cliftonville to storm to the top of the table. We have 3 more games until

the league splits and then we play another 5 games, we have also been in good form in

the cups as we progress to the Quarter-Finals in both competitions.

We failed in the cups but manged to do just enough in the league to clinch

a 57th title for the club. It was a dodgy end to the season as you can see from

the results and the tables below, a good result against Portadown would have

clinched it sooner and we should have got it having taken a 2-0 lead.

Warrenpoint managed to stay up by beating Carrick 10-4 in the relegation/promotion

play-off. Second leg was rather boring after they won first leg 8-4 at Carrick.

Results (Part 1)

SxxtTI.jpg

A big win to start our Champions League effort and then a great result against Debrecen.

After a good draw away to Tel-Aviv it was a shame to go out by getting thumped at home.

Celtic were just too strong but at least we kept each leg relatively close and we actually had

enough chances to make it a closer scoreline. Our title defence got off to a bad start with defeat

at Portadown but we have been good since then and slowly on the way up the table.

Results (Part 2)

ZEs0h8.jpg

A great run of results with a 2 game blip, a shocking defeat to Loughgall who were bottom

at the time and then another cup semi-final defeat, hopefully we can make a final in a cup,

we still have more to come anyway, building up a nice lead but as we nearly blew a 7 point

lead in the final 5 games last season not going to be getting carried away just yet.

Our cup semi-final jinx has struck twice again, haven't checked but it

No such problems in the league though as we have been great all season and

the league title was won with six games left.

A decent season but could have been better, did well to pip Melbourne City to 2nd but they came out

on top with the narrow 1-0 victory over us in the semi-final, in the Champions League Pohang Steelers proved

too strong but it's very poor that we lost it at home after a good result in the away leg.

Well that was short, sacked after one league game lol, had been applying for other jobs so I guess the board didn't like that.

Does seem a bit random though as i saved the game at this point and reloaded save before that game to see, did instant result we

then lost that opening league game but didn't get sacked, anyway nevermind will move on, where did King go next?

the title but draws cost us that in the end as Kilmarnock landed the trophy..

The club regaining the SPL title was the big aim this season after messing up last season.

The Europa League campaign was quite long with the early rounds but it should have been

better as we led 2-0 away to Leverkusen. I was hopeful of winning a cup and having

gone as far as we did it is very disappointing to miss out in the latter stages to Inverness

and to be honest the final against Hearts was a rather drab affair and the ref didn't help.

0OFV8c.jpg

D6PWy6.jpg

Well it's happened again, I was probably a bit too ambitious applying for the Real Madrid job, but I

was also interested in the vacancies at Stuttgart and Gladbach, the sack followed these applications.

No real surprise that Madrid application was unsuccessful, that was also the case with Gladbach but

their choice of a new manager opened up the position at another club that interested me so I applied

for that and was successful. I will reveal King's new club soon, a clue....... Red B........

So after getting the sack at Celtic it was off to Austria for King, this job became available when

John Van Den Brom left to take the Gladbach job, Red Bull Salzburg have been the dominent team

winning 7 titles in a row, so it was important to keep that run going and we did.

It was looking good in the group stage after 4 games we were in a good position to progress but a heavy

defeat to Chelsea set up a big decider with Juventus, a draw would have done but it wasn't even close.

So we dropped into the Europa League and that didn't go well as CSKA Moscow got lucky.

Below is a closer look at a couple of our games, one we messed up and the other a very sweet result for a Spurs fan.

CRAZY GAME!

What now for King? Got another year on contract at Red Bull Salzburg. It depends what jobs become

and finally the application is successful.

Really didn't expect the Tottenham job to become available again so soon

and now after taking a job with a rival they make an offer. Maybe working

in England helped, it isn't great timing but can I turn it down? It will probably be

available again soon enough but it could be just typical that the next bloke in does

a great job and stays at the club for a few years..................So what will King do?.

Things were going great at West Ham and it would have been good to continue the job.

However when Spurs make an offer it's a no-brainer really, can't turn that down to stay at West Ham.

Just found this after seeing your comment in the FMC forum. What sort of tactics do you use? They seem very attacking, based on the number of times you concede two goals in a game.

Cracking career :thup:

I have tried various tactics, can't remember exactly what they were that season but I'm now in my 12th season and I find whatever tactics I use the teams progress has pretty much been in the same vain.

Going to get some seasonal updates done to bring this thread up to date.

Fantastic career :applause: But strange why you have been throwing away 2 goals lead :(

Thanks, yeah strange is one word, I have used several others.;)

Bad news is we keep on doing it, now when we get a 2 goal lead I just wait for the comeback, when I get to season 11 you will see some very painful results.

Maybe I should change my tactics when we get a 2 goal lead, only thing that stops me from doing that is what if the comeback still happens, also annoying is the amount of games where the scorelines turn around so quickly. I know those type of games happen but I think it's happened a bit too often in my time at Spurs.:(
