Toss a coin to your manager

Recommended Posts

While waiting for an eventual sack, since i failed the objective i was brought for, this message came in...

1a62dc71759c488ec06023a25966d172.png

Does that mean... I'm safe??

I'll wait for a season reset to confirm. I'd love to stay here and bring Boro back.

Please, don't axe me...

Middlesbrough F.C.

Season 2022./23.

Alright, season has been reset and i'm still here so let's get over with the report and start rebuilding for express return to the Prem.

An unlucky end to the season, as we slip to the Championship. I may have run away from Plymouth but we'll face off again, since they've won promotion from League One. At least my good work there wasn't wasted.

 

Premier League

We had it in our hands and dropped it all against already relegated side. Fracking tragic...

The Emirates FA Cup

This happened under previous management...

Carabao Cup

As did this.

Squad

We tried, boys... Shame, really, as most of these fine fellas deserve to play on the highest level.

e7581438b6f2b62c195e97b60995d73f.png

 

Transfers

Transfer window will be fun to go through, as we already has some rats abandoning the ship. But few of them, like Luperto, Herrera, Leyva signed new contracts, eliminating their relegation release clauses and will help us to get back into top flight.

We're set...

Best XI

Darren Randolph; Cristian Manea, Sebastiano Luperto, Ethan PinnockRico Henry; Michael Jacobs, George Saville, Yangel Herrera, Moussa Diaby; Bryan Leyva, Semir Miljanovic

Brutal end to the season, man. Maybe a call to Yenn is necessary...

Hasn't met her yet... Still traveling with a pestering bard after tossing few elves far back on the shelves :D

I'm finally watching the show, love how irreverent it is (consistent with the source, obviously). It's been delightful, very well-cast.

Yeah, really loved it... So much actually, i watched it twice already. Cavill is just superb in the role and loved Anya Chalotra's performance even more second time around.

What can i say, i'm a sucker for fantasy... Rewatched Legend of the Seeker recently and i'm still bummed out they cancelled it. Give me more swords and magic :D

Great rise up the league. Shame about the final game. Back you to bounce back straight away.

Middlesbrough F.C.

August 2023.

I had planned to keep the core of this squad together (and by core, i mean 80% of the team) but with bunch of players wanting to leave and few of the oldies wanting a new challenge, we had ourselves a revolution.

We had few Bosman's already tied up and that was supposed to be it but then Transfer List became flooded with such tasty players, i got bit carried away.

So, yeah, loads of new players, really quality players who should help us walk this league with ease and immediately get back to the top flight.

 

Transfers

Henry and Pinnock couldn't wait a year for PL football so yeah, they're gone. Sad for Henry, he was a part of my plans but oh well... Leeds used Manea's relegation release clause. I offered him a new contract but he chose The Whites. Randolph was one of those who wanted a change of scenery while Everton randomly bid for Borini (who didn't play a single minute since i took over).

Now let's head to the newcomers.

 

376dfc630d1bef22089e159ebb671dff.png

Shockingly, my first signing. Love this lad. His contract with Liverpool was expiring and of course i went for him.

 

fcf0a1665daa9626d0e912fa8499b45d.png

Diaby never went back to Paris. Still our first option on the left.

 

84211dc191176680d7f7b70a02193624.png

Croatian international joined Luperto in the heart of our defense. PL worthy pairing, easily.

 

ea25492b3f054fe0fda6e74a3ae39679.png

One to give me headaches whenever i have to pick our central defenders... Inter let him go too easily. Marotta must have retired.

 

549ef8df656e65375a4082ff90db712d.png

Young Spaniard never got his chance at Atleti...

 

61238a89190af914d42faf73e2b10d9b.png

One of the two we've got from United. Brilliant little player.

 

a652424f617f0aad60c69981ccbf3b0e.png

Our new #1. Followed your typical Chelsea path, signed for peanuts, went on a few loans before leaving permanently.

 

b4525eff97847217f7c7fd8cdbbc439c.png

I had another PSG reject planned instead of him but we were low on HG players so i went back for Chong. Not as good as he can be but still a nice player.

 

657e108909dba404e2f361e59c438be5.png

Since Henry left, i needed someone to deputize on Lewis. He's still young, HG and Everton left him on cheap.

 

dafe7c0535be803144f1fefda12a9b18.png

Followed his development for a few years already. It was too late to get him last year since he went from Birmingham to Leeds so this summer, i had to try. Negotiated since the window opened with Leeds, priced him down from 45mill and without thinking blew 70% of our budget to get him. Absolutely fantastic player and i'll keep him at Riverside as long as i'm here. ****ing brilliant!!

 

0a30bd3835cc61e0a00b93424d1f7497.png

Backup goalie, signed because Randolph wanted to leave.

 

Squad

If we don't get promoted with these guys, i'll never launch FM ever again...

2cc3a3735e9d3d8bd9b0158f1b91e0b7.png

 

Sky Bet Championship

Late defensive blunder v Huddersfield stopped us from having a 100% start. I'm very pleased how we looked on the pitch, controlling every game so far. We're making it look easy...

5c2aef605cf3834656098b0be36ffe83.png

e42835af798164840a20a7cf3150d0be.png

Former PL trio on the top. Also, The Pilgrims looking decent so far.

 

Carabao Cup

I'll rotate a lot in the Cups, since return to the Premier League is my main focus but even weakened, we went easily over first two obstacles.

Next one is Watford.

Very pleased with what we got, PL reputation helped a lot. We should be back, we're head and shoulders above other teams.

Quite a jump up to Middlesbrough only to get kicked in the teeth.

Knew it was going to be tricky and being so close to escaping, it hurts... But we're cruising through Championship and most likely going straight back up.

Middlesbrough F.C.

Season 2023./24.

I expected us to do well, since we are easily a Prem team playing in the Championship. But...

 

Sky Bet Championship

But this is something special...

7f4378c01ccedfe9a6576af5f03af40c.png

Walked the league. Bloody ridiculous how easy it's been. And unexpectedly, i've finally got that achievement unlocked...

 

The Emirates FA Cup

A bit disappointed to go out, especially since the backups had the Villans on the ropes. Sadly, they were clinical and we missed pretty much everything.

Carabao Cup

See above.

Squad

50f2ddc2862e16c78f1155ca8e731695.png

I think we're ready for the Premier League... Honestly, if we keep all of them, we should be clear of relegation, mid-table position at least.

Wisdom is off to Belgium, he wanted new challenge and we've got a replacement lined up so we won't be missing him. I'm looking for replacement for Saville, as his legs are deteriorating and that's about it. No more changes. Unless we sell someone.

 

Transfers

e3f83c2903a45e9af3236b5ecd47a85c.png

Only one arrival in January. Prospect at RB, young Ivorian, so when Southampton came knocking about Wood, i was more than happy to let him go.

 

Finances

I'm yet to extend contracts of key players so it's likely WB will take a huge hit. Don't really care though, that sweet PL money is incoming...

Middlesbrough F.C.

August 2024.

Went through preseason rather quickly; most of the business has already been done, we had our targets for out new butcher boy in DMC slot so...

 

Transfers

Markovic, Costa and Mortellaro was supposed to be our only deals this summer (with the exception of Saville's replacement) but Everton suddenly came for Luperto, activating his release clause and off he went. I was sad to see him go, he was our pillar of defense in The Invincibles season but ultimately, Everton offered him more than we could. Bastoni will replace him in starting lineup and i've got another kid from PSG's reserves to act as cover.

 

935e789dd8ddb7111d6bc7ce9a0956b5.png

I planned to get him on Bosman but he wanted to wait for another options so i paid PSG a symbolic sum of money and arranged his arrival for summer. He'll take Wisdom's place in our rotation.

 

fd1bfd104341c845f8deb1d6c0c59658.png

This is a free transfer of the decade. Threw everything i had on him, paid his agent like 10 mill and luckily, no one else was after him and we've got a world class AMC for next to nothing.

 

729c433ee2787a247df78825cad4ac53.png

After season long loan, he's ours full time. Farinez's deputy.

 

8a62ea8ec81ca4d3a83fce8b29bb139c.png

He's easily our joint best defender but... I'll prefer my own players before him. He'll get his chance in cups.

 

aeb88d639752dbb50b4a6beae20161c5.png

He'll have to learn his trade for Herrera but i can see him taking over down the line.

 

Squad

We kept (almost) all of our best players. I'm excited to see what they can do at the top level.

3bead505d6dec5429a7e00707a2e5288.png

 

Finances

As good as ever. And things will only improve...

2d20ae90e73f0c366e9d1d3001bd4829.png

 

Premier League

Couldn't have wished for a better opening month. Dominated the hell outta Leicester and Stoke, had our fair share of luck v Wolves and were ultimately punished for our recklessness v United. Rashford and Gravenbench were unplayable.

Carabao Cup

Easy enough overcame our first obstacle. Newcastle is next. Draw hasn't been kind this year...

Middlesbrough F.C.

September & October 2024.

Shaky in the league but comfortably cruising in the Carling Carabao Cup.

 

Premier League

We deserved far more; no one outplayed us, except for Arsenal. Brighton and Tottenham games, i wanted to pull my hair out due to stupendous amount of squandered chances and missed sitters.
