A great start to the season sees us top the table early on, 1 point ahead of Nacional. We probably could have done better against El Tanque Sisley but we are in the midst of an injury crisis:

8 of those are first team players.

Can you tell where our players started coming back from injury? Yup, against Boston River. We were lucky to pick up a point away to Libertad but Corinthians and River are gonna be stupidly tough.

I said that both Corinthians and River would be tough, we did the unthinkable and managed to beat River at home, but Corinthians destroyed us at home and River destroyed us away and domestic results directly after the continental losses have been poor as well losing at home to Fenix and drawing at home to Villa Espanola isn't great, especially as we're now 5 points behind Nacional.

Ac goianiense-go2.png

Atlético Clube Goianiense, usually known as Atlético Goianiense or just as Atlético, is a Brazilian football team from the city of Goiânia, Goiás state. Atlético Goianiense is the oldest Goiânia city football club. The club is the first team of its state to win a national competition, which was the Série C. Atlético Goianiense made a comeback to Brazil's top level Série A in 2010 after a 23-year absence.

On April 2, 1937, Nicanor Gordo and Joaquim Veiga founded the club, starting football in the newly founded city of Goiânia. Nicanor Gordo and Joaquim Veiga left the newly founded club in 1938, and joined Goiânia EC, which was another new club.

In 1944, the club competed in the first Campeonato Goiano, which was also the first official football championship in the state, and was contested between five clubs from Goiânia. The other teams were Goiânia, Vila Nova, Goiás and Campinas. Atlético Goianiense won the competition, being its first title. In 1957, the club won the state championship without losing a match, also winning the Torneio dos Invictos, played in the same year.

In 1971, the team won the Torneio da Integração Nacional, beating Ponte Preta in the final. In 1990, after defeating América Mineiro in the penalty shootout, Atlético Goianiense won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C.

In 2003, Atlético Goianiense finished in the state championship's last place, and was relegated to the following year's second division. In 2005, the club won the Goiás State Championship Second Division, being promoted to the following year's First Division. In 2006, the club finished in second place in the Goiás State Championship First Level, and they won the league in 2010 and in 2011.The club competed in the Copa Sudamericana in 2012.

Finally a club willing to take a chance on me! I've gone from £325 p/w to £1,400 p/w and from a 700 seater stadium to a 50,000 seater one so that's definitely a step up! It may seem like a step down going from Uruguay's top tier to a club that's just been promoted to Brazil's 2nd tier but it's actually a step up in terms of reputation.

Here's the squad I've inherited, we need more strength in depth and a couple of ML's and a striker or 2, but we do have some promising younger players in the reserve and youth teams.

It all started so well :( A massive away win to Tombense but then an almost equally massive loss away to Santos has started a very poor run of form, despite this we're outside the relegation zone and both the board and media expect us to finish around here come the end of the season.

This is either going to be Brazil's story of the season or the perfect heartbreak...A win over AMG puts us in the promotion places for the first time, there are now 4 games left, we face 9th and 6th away from home and face 3rd and 15th at home, that's a very, very tough 4 games.

It was incredibly close between 2nd and 7th but we've amazingly finished up in 2nd and get promoted to the highest reputation league in South America! We're definitely going to need a massive squad overhaul to stay up!!

Thanks Oriole :D The answer to the first question is that I honestly don't have a clue why they weren't relegated, the clubs that have the 3 worst average points over 2 years are supposed to be relegated but I don't have a clue what this means:

f42592e9f6475425873ebce67b841514.png

And to answer the 2nd question, that fixture is the winner of the Opening Stage vs the winner of the Closing Stage, but then there's the actual Champions Playoff after that, so it still doesn't make much sense.

Having spent a season in Uruguay's top flight, I think I can answer this. The 3 relegated clubs are shaded wrong. I think at the end of the season, you will find that Wanderers, Liverpool and Rampla Juniors will be relegated on average points over 3 years.

For the second question, the first playoff is between the winners of the Apertura and the Clausura. The winner of this tie (Defensor) advances to face the team that topped the overall points table for the season (Oriental). This one is the Champions Playoff and is played over two legs. I hope some of it makes sense.

Ah that explains that then, Oriental ended up finishing 12th this season, looks like they might miss me as manager!

Pre-Season? What Pre-Season. In Brazil we go straight into our State Championship, the Campeonato Goiano and I'm using this time to bleed in new signings and even though we're down in 3rd we're looking very strong indeed!

595469dbc443606c8c5f0933e9dd8833.png

A lot of signings and it's a shame we can only field 5 foreigners as there are a lot of good young Bolivian players who are joining us, here are the majority of our signings:

Felipe Augusto - Maranhao - Fabio - Diego Zabala - Wandrew - Nicolas Penailillo - Anderson Lopes - Oliver Linale - Rolando Vera - Santiago Naguel - Fernando Rea - Pedro Taramasco

A great start to life in the Brasileirao! Gutted to have lost against Santos but they're favourites for the title. We're also through to the 3rd Round of the cup against 4th tier side ADM also known as Aguia de Maraba so that should be a piece of cake.

I know it's a bit soon to think about new jobs but there are a few clubs that I'd be looking to manage; Chivas in Mexico due to only being allowed to sign Mexicans (I would do youth only) and any club with really good facilities in Brazil, Argentina or Colombia due to the league system and to do youth only with one of those clubs.

Just the one loss away to Palmeiras has seen us solidify our 4th place and a Copa Libertadores spot (although that's anywhere from 1st-8th) and I have just 6 months left on my contract, will I be offered a new one? Will I accept a new one? Or will I look for pastures new?

Ouch. We finally come back to earth with a massive bang. Letting in 6 against Vitoria is diabolical but I can be impressed with the victories over Corinthians and Atletico Paraense as well as the fightback to get a point against high flyers Santos. Also, the Chivas job became available and I've applied, they've gotten an interim manager for the time being but fingers crossed I get an interview.

Racing Club (2014).svg

Racing Club, also known simply as Racing, is an Argentine professional sports club based in Avellaneda, a city of Greater Buenos Aires. Founded in 1903, Racing has been historically considered one of the "big five" clubs of Argentine football. Racing currently plays in the Primera División, the top division of the Argentine league system.

Racing has won the Primera División 17 times (with a record of seven consecutive championships between 1913 and 1919), apart from winning 12 National cups such as five Copa Ibarguren, four Copa de Honor Municipalidad de Buenos Aires and one Copa Beccar Varela. Due to those achievements the team was nicknamed "La Academia" ("The Academy of Football") which still identifies the club and its supporters.

On the international stage, the club has won 6 titles, 3 of them recognised by FIFA and CONMEBOL including one Copa Libertadores, one Intercontinental Cup and the first edition of the Supercopa Sudamericana, therefore being the second Argentine team to become South American champion, and the first to become club world champion. In addition, Racing also won two Copa Aldao and one Copa de Honor Cousenier, both tournaments organized by AFA and AUF together.

The first team plays its home games in the Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón, nicknamed El Cilindro de Avellaneda (in English: "The Cylinder of Avellaneda"). Apart from football, other sports practised at Racing are artistic gymnastics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, handball, martial arts, roller skating, tennis and volleyball.

And welcome everyone to a change in direction, from now on this save will continue to be a journeyman, but I will not be signing any players. Yep, from this point on it's a youth only challenge. I'm finally at a club with good facilities and a good history as well so why not, it's the reason I wanted the Chivas job and we'll see where this can take us!

End of month odds; 33-1 - 9th

Draws galore to start the season, the best result was definitely grinding out a 0-0 at home to Boca, their only dropped points so far, with us being in 9th our media odds have changed, going from 30-1 to 33-1 and form 6th to 9th so at least the dynamics are working now as well.

A very tough month but we ended out coming out of it very well and up in 4th with a home win over 2nd placed River and an away win over 3rd place Huracan, Boca are going to run away with the league, they're 1 point clear with 3 games in hand!

An unbeaten 3 games but I'm not happy with the results, it was definitely a case of 4 points dropped and if we'd of won those games we'd be up in 4th which definitely looks a lot better.

What happened to the other 10 teams in Argentina? It's been 30 teams for a while now.

In the first half of 2016, the league will be contested between thirty teams. Four teams will be relegated to and two teams will be promoted from Primera B Nacional.

From August 2016 to June 2017, the league will be contested between twenty-eight teams. Four teams will be relegated to and two teams will be promoted from Primera B Nacional.

From August 2017 to June 2018, the league will be contested between twenty-six teams. Four teams will be relegated to and two teams will be promoted from Primera B Nacional.

From August 2018 to June 2019, the league will be contested between twenty-four teams. Four teams will be relegated to and two teams will be promoted from Primera B Nacional.

According to Wikipedia there's going to be a 24 team league, whether it's a bug that's mine gone to 20 or it's just not been displayed on the Wikipedia page that the league is going to settle on 20 teams.

End of month odds; - 7-1 - 7th

3 good results (well, we should have beaten Atl. Tucuman) and no goals conceded sees us rise up to 4th and we, at least for now, lead the rest of the pack in the race for the continental places.
