Hey, San Marino seem to be doing relatively well there.

That'll be due to the uncommon International League victory, the most recent being a 2-1 over Moldova in 2026.

A very good end to the season and we have Europa League football next season!

Man City win the Europa League and so it's another club crossed off the list.

Predicted to get to the last 8 in the Europa League and I have to aim for a top 6 place.

2027/28 - First half of the season

An amazing first half of the season sees just dropping just 9 points in total and yet we're in 3rd, admittedly just a point off the top spot, it's looking to be a very tight battle for 1st! We also breezed through the Europa League group with no difficulties.

We face Spanish side Rayo, they shouldn't be too difficult.

An amazing first full year in charge as we lose just the one game away to Spain, teenage striker Zvjezdan Sosa has been a revelation scoring 16 goals in his first 10 international games!

Sandro Kulenovic

Our World Cup qualifying group has also been drawn, 3 decent nations but none should give us any trouble.

Europa League knockouts  time! :D 

f923eb1b72acda451ff1d75b5993d1dd.png

With Joey getting injured in the 94th minute the last kick of the game ended up being at 98:08, probably the longest additional time I've seen!

Easily through to the 2nd Knockout Round, and so are Wolves!

We're off to Portugal, I'd have preferred to face Chaves though! Can Wolves get past Liverpool?

Here we go. The Europa League Final, it may say we've won it before but that was actually the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, which UEFA doesn't recognise.

Sorry, but is there any specific reason you are exploiting the ME ? Doesnt that take away everything a "challenge" is meant to be ? Kudos that you are tackling a huge project like this, but with a tactic like this you shouldnt be praised for the success.

It's a tactic that works, I could spend hours trying to make something up myself but I know that I won't be happy with the results, I'm able to breeze few seasons quite quickly knowing that I'll probably still go through rough patches but I know that more often than not they will work themselves out.

Another late goal but this time against us, we were able to snatch it on penalties! The bigger shock is that we face Serbia in the Quarter Final!

Beautiful progress. What's next?

I'm going to be jobless until the mid-season sackings, hopefully one of the eligible clubs has a tough start to the season!

Maybe I won't be waiting until mid-season, it's August 31st and with me turning down Benfica for being in the Champions League another eligible club has become available. :D

We are absolutely shocking at the back, we're starting with 2 16 year olds at DLC and WBL and a 17 year old at WBR so it's understandable but we're up in 4th thanks to our attack, a 7-4 away win at Milan being the highlight!
