Air Miles Man - Back to Civilisation

Recommended Posts

A trio of 3-0 wins continue our outstanding form this month. It had gone unnoticed by me until now but we are still unbeaten in the league this season.

It's a 10 point lead with the half way stage gone. I am surprised by how well we are doing and what a miserable challenge the rest of the league are having against us.

Again we have to release one of our best players in Cameron Hudson. He was considering a move to Kashima Antlers, but this wage cap stuff is the biggest pain in the arse, and since he hadn't made a decision by the time we had to register, he gets released instead scuppering a £1.3m deal as well.

February was a bad month for us as our lack of quality begins to catch up with us, the only thing to shout about is a win the Champions League to start the tournament in a winning way.

The gap could go as low as 6 points when Melbourne play their game in hand in the Melbourne derby.

A disastrous month, the squad is crap and threadbare with an average age of about 18. This was always going to happen. We lose both games in the Champions League so are in real danger of not getting out of the group.

We have blewn a huge lead and now we are level points with Melbourne City, 3 games to go I really would not put money on us at this stage.

Doubt we will get through the group here either.

As we run in to the final few weeks, we keep our nerve against Brisbane to record an overdue win.

Melbourne are choking, could we still pull this out the fire.

With their penultimate game, Melbourne choke again and hand us an opportunity to win the title with a win from our next fixture in a few days time.

With the Regular Season won I don't even want to finish out the remainder of the fixtures and resign my role. We will get points for the wins we had until my resignation this season.

Air Miles Time

We won 20 games this season

The equation is as follows:-

3 x 4.78 x 2 x 1 = 28.67 air miles per win = 573.35 air miles won during the season = Added to 5,596.04 we already had means we have 6,169.39 air miles

So our map looks like this.

And we can indeed now load Argentina and Chile. Which I will be doing. I am going to get rid of China, South Korea and Japan and wait for a job in Argentina and Chile that is within range. We might have to skip a season while I take a sabbatical.

A closer look at what we have to work with in Argentina and Chile.

Well we have made a bit of a boo boo here, there are literally no clubs in this region of Chile and Argentina, so we may have to think about this a different way.

I remember there is a club in Ushuaia but it's way too low to become playable. The southernmost available clubs at start are Guillermo Brown (based in Puerto Madryn) and Puerto Montt, about 400-500 miles from your current range.

Or there is another way, Vladivostok and Khabarovsk in Russia are available right now, technically it's part of European football :D

We are the new manager of Kashiwa Reysol. It is now August 2043, and there are 8 games left in the season.

5f83b6e625a8f00d948ff149715f8424.png

The voyage will coast 4,842.53 of our air miles.

Japan are 24th in the world so a modifier of 556% for the remainder of the season.

Our new range at our new club of 1,327.79 after we moved.

Here is the squad, we are lacking an assistant so don't really know how good the players are yet.

Yeah I messed up, I thought there would be one or two clubs available down there.

Well I would say that is quite the start as we score 13 in month and concede none, still trying to work out my best team, but at the moment it's not costing us.

75fe9558ddec75e23fb0bc3482c23599.png

Four teams qualify for the Champions League and we have put ourselves in a good position to snaffle one of the spots, but we need to keep up our form here.

Our defense is made of steel as the opposition still haven't scored against us under my management. A shame we took over so late in the season as with this form we may have been able to do some special things this season.

The goal of Champions League football appears to be pretty much secured at this stage. A strong finish to the season will ensure it.

Such is the weirdness of how we draw maps, it tricks the mind into thinking you are further away from a place than you actually especially South America and Oceania.

My favourite ever TV programme is The West Wing. (I'm old). This is a scene that really stuck with me, (but obviously not enough it seems).

Well we have won every game since we came in, including a final day win against Kashima Antlers who sit second, so you could say we are the form team in the division. The league is over but the Tennohai resume in a few months.

df2892c276e3ec292a1e8774d8e3063f.png

We qualify for the Champions League which really was the only realistic goal, when we came in. In the end we almost usurped Kashima to come second. There is a pretty big gap between us and Urawa, something we hope to address next season.

If you are Gamba you would furious at Mane for getting sent off after 15 mins, but we took major advantage of that fact, as we smash Gamba to reach the final.

That is the end of the season so it air miles time

We won 12 games this (games since taking over)

The equation is as follows:-

3 x 5.56 x 2 x 1 = 33.33 air miles per win = 399.98 air miles won = Added to the 1,327.29 we already had means we now have 1,727,77 air miles in the kitty.

No real new leagues to add, since there is no real point adding China and South Korea, since we already moved to Japan.

The transfer window is open and the chairman has decided to bring in centre back Rodolfo Milozzi of Independiente. He should be a good addition to the squad.

Not the best signing as we get in Australian Cameron Figg from Melbourne Victory. This is a Chairman signing so I won't cast aspersions on the DoF as yet. By the way we are pretty stinking rich and we are not in Australia with it's completely mental stupid rules so we should be okay and I don't mind depth in the team.

I was watching the Champions League draw with gleaming interest to see if we would draw old club Central Coast Mariners in the group stages, but we did not and instead face Guangzhou Evergrande of China, Kitchee of Hong Kong and Ulsan of South Korea.

We were one penalty kick away from winning the Super Cup, but Escudero missed and they Urawa won it in sudden death. Disappointing but there will be bigger fish to fry this season, but we lose our first piece of potential silverware.

We let Brazilian Idevan go as he was 3rd choice centre midfielder and foriegn player, so didn't really need him anymore. He moves to Yokohama F Marinos for £1.2 rising to £1.4m

We get in Japanese centre back Yasushi Hattori. He is past his best, but he does 118 caps for Japan and will definately add needed experience, he was a free agent, but he spent his best years at Urawa Red Diamonds.

Well it's been a very indifferent start to the league. Kashima was always going to be a hard game and we lost 3-1, but we bounced back in China with an away with against Guangzhou Evergrande. The draw against Gamba is the one that annoys me more, yes they are also a good side but we need to win our home games.

81b8615de290e57b99d37625d57f757b.png

The league does not look great for us at this early stage. We have 1 point and are 13th.

I didn't want to sell him, as he is a the back up goalie and if our the starter goes down injured we are screwed. But he is an arse constantly complaining, so I'm packing 26 year old Aussie keeper Marc Thompson off to Sagan Tosu.
