Avoid The Drop 3.0 - Game Thread


Recommended Posts

Backerman just can't seem to motivate the boys anymore, the days of continental play appear to be behind him...sigh. If he had only got that Continental Pro license...he could have been someone.

I've never realized how coaching attributes can drop off - From 2040 to 2060

Backerman's Attack coaching has dropped from 13 to 8,

Man Mgt from 12 to 8,

Mental from 11 to 7,

Tactical from 13 to 9,

Technical from 16 to 12,

Determination from 11 to 6,

JCA 10 to 6,

JPA from 9 to 6,

Motivation from 9 to 1, and

Tactical Knowledge from 12 to 7.

NOTHING's gone up, evidently Backerman's slowly deteriorating, no wonder his results have dropped off.

Erik Bäckermann - What a season, Inter go 18 years without a title and Erik wins the first in that time. It was won on the last day of the season as well.

Lawrence Lazewski - Having not found a job for some time, he's decided to retire from football. Unrelegated.

Relegated Staff

Antoine Clemont - Didn't retire, but decided to head back to Scotland where he took over at Morton in League One. Morton finished 8th in the league.

Zachary Eldinho - Sacked by Hogaborg and is now looking for a new club.

Junior - Manager Stats - Euros didn't go well, but he then took wales back into Division A in the Euro Nations League.

Steven Kemp - Not too bad and is a push on last season, finishing in 8th place. Play-offs next season?

Chris Small - Joined Hartlepool at Christmas, but unfortunately couldn't help them stay in League One and it's relegation number 4.

Just had news that Chris Small and Erik Backermann will both retire at the end of the season.

So unless by some miracle Backermann gets relegated, he is the overall winner.

Wow, the old gray fox had one more title in the tank...(don't really know if Backerman went gray or bald, hoping he kept that wonderful hair...)

Antoine Clemont- His last season as a manager and he took Bristol to 10th place again. Just to rub it in, Bristol Rovers sacked Clemont the day before he was to retire.

Zachary Eldinho - Has decided to go to the lowest level of Swedish football with Vasteras. They finished 3rd last season and are currently 3rd so far this season.

Steven Kemp - Not too bad for a final season, just missing out on the play-offs, in 5th place.

WINNER: Erik Bäckermann

So we come to the end of the game and Erik Backermann is the overall winner, having never been relegated and lasting the longest.

Lawrence Lazewski came in 2nd place and actually came close to relegation once, but was sacked at the right time.

El Mantis finished 3rd having never been relegated as a player.

Chris Small and Junior (not including Wales) are equal on 4 relegations each.

Was interesting to see how some players were at the top level and then pretty much went into obscurity.

Lastly, thanks for everyone who followed the whole way through. I will probably do another for the next game, but no guarantees right now.

Yes, thank you for a well-run and completed sign-up (hardly ever happens, and I'm often the worst offender...) Was interesting to observe the fall-off of Backerman's skills at the end of the save, something to keep in mind as my managers age.

Nothing guaranteed, but having signed back onto the forum for the first time in ages, i enjoyed looking back through this and other old sign-ups i did. So after 5 years i "might" do Avoid The Drop 4.0
