After doing well against the league's stronger sides, I'm at a loss to explain why we did so poorly at Plough Lane.

Swindon remain top, but things have got a little closer.

Meet the latest reason for why I've not been updating this much. :D

Oscar Peter Luke, born 1st June weighing 8lb!

That's some strange kit you've given your new regen for training! Congratulations. :) 

As for the game, looks like Fitzpatrick and Windass been kicking some ass.

Jake Andrews decided that he would start scoring with his long range efforts! The team's really decided to kick on at the end of the season.

The playoffs are confirmed, but I will be very disappointed if we fail to go up automatically.

I also applied for the open Sheffield Wednesday job - but they gave it to Craig Bellamy.

It would be the choke of the century if you somehow managed to not get automatically promoted from that position. Not gonna happen.

Oldham Athletic - 2020/21 Season Review - League One

 

League - A strong start left us in a great position for the rest of the season. The chasing pack seemed to just implode towards the end, whilst we kept our heads and secured a second successive promotion

FA Cup - Three easy ties set us up for a money spinner against Chelsea. The less said about the performance, the better

Other Cups - I didn't expect anything from the League Cup after we drew Preston, but our second string did very well in the EFL Trophy

 

Key Players

Gerard Fitzpatrick

Josh Windass - Dean's son!

Anthony Stokes

Jorge

Having taken Oldham to two promotions, I felt that I was starting to become a hot property in football management.

I declared interest in a number of jobs, including Celtic, who bizarrely ignored several prominent candidates and appointed one of their own coaches.

However, a London club offered me a job. What's more, I agreed £11.25k a week wages. That'll cover the massive living costs in London!

Club #4 - West Ham - Championship

An excellent start as the squad show just how good they are.

But we've not got a real advantage in the league - yet.

Maybe not but I'd bet on you winning promotion at the end of the season 😀

Defending is fine. Chance creation is fine. Chance conversion...pretty meh. Several of these goals were from deflections or other similar lucky events.

Sunderland still hot on our heels!

I really wouldn't be too annoyed if I managed to 1-0 my way to the title and promotion... you're on the right path, keep pushing.

Our run in the League Cup is over but we've finally started scoring a few more goals.

WestHamOct21LT.thumb.png.44e2f47b957482ffb4ade214e196bfc5.png

5 points is a decent gap, but a bad result or two and we won't look so safe.

An international break gave us few games in November, but the win at Craven Cottage may be crucial.

Just two points dropped, despite forgetting how to defend at Hillsborough.

You did draw 4 matches so far already. Unacceptable. ;)

Almost completely flawless unless we got to the City Ground. Begovic is my best penalty taker! 

WestHamJan22LT.thumb.png.2f8cd69faf0227e9f8f16cc893ce9405.png

20 points. 18 games to go. Time to cruise?

 

New Signings

Didn't need many new players - I probably shouldn't sign a 31 year old striker who won't be good enough next season, but Lapadula was snapped up by Fiorentina and I don't have many options.

Towards the end of the month, the league goals completely dried up. Even the goals against Reading were from freekicks.

WestHamFeb22LT.thumb.png.c6c1c60a2cca986b14eea412961360a4.png

But we're now nearly 25 points clear!

You could holiday the rest of the season and still win the league by 18 points from here. Great work, looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Business as usual in the league, with the extra treat of a trip to Wembley.

The secret here has definitely been the defence.

With the title wrapped up, I mixed a few of the better youth players into the team. I like to think they did well. No shame in losing to Arsenal in the cup - they're still easily one of England's strongest sides!

WestHamApr22LT.thumb.png.c880773f553f9a3d73f1d04149add001.png

One more game. Hoping to be unbeaten!

I don't think I've seen a season this dominant from anyone in FM17, apart from those managing like in the San Marino league with a dominant team 50 years into the future or whatever. Sensational stuff.

Now watch you lose the last match to ruin the unbeaten season. :D

The AI has just been very bad at managing this squad. It's built around defensive football, so I'm guessing that it had problems in getting goals out of the strikers. Signing Leigh Griffiths certainly made a difference!
