A strong month moves us back up into the playoff places but annoyingly we're already out of the FA Trophy.

An excellent group of players you say?

We actually did really, really well in taking Norwich to a replay and then only conceding the one goal, it's just everywhere else we've been awful! :lol:

That's much better! 3 wins from 4 moves us back up into the playoff places with 8 games remaining, can we keep the good times rolling?

That was some kick in the nuts in January but you've recovered nicely. And with that Norwich money, you're set for a season or two...

It really was, we're now 8 unbeaten though with just Aprils fixtures remaining though! We're up to £1.3m in the bank but at least  £650k will be coming out at the end of the season to fund the Youth Facility upgrades.

Two away draws and two home wins means that with just four games remaining we're well inside the playoff places and have almost guaranteed our spot for the end of the season! :D

We really picked a bad time to have a downturn in form, we're facing Spennymoor in the first round of the promotion playoffs.

Wait, you signed four goalkeepers? :lol:

Yes, well no, I forgot to renew the contract of our 2 goalkeepers, then the DoF brought in Lewis who I thought was rubbish and wondered why he was even signed, which is when I found out that he was our only goalkeeper, and then I took 3 on trial and signed them. :lol:

Home losses to start and end the month but it's been a great month other than that and we've moved from 14th to 4th!

An inconsistent month in the league but we really should have done better considering we played 3 of the bottom 4 but we're still hanging on to a playoff spot at the halfway point. There'll also be no FA Cup heroics as we conceded 3 goals in 3 minutes to lose against York. :(

I'm going to delay it for 2 weeks because I'm torn on what to do, its a pay rise of £700 p/w with a team that's guaranteed continental football and in a higher ranked league than the one I'm currently in, their previous manager went to Alloa in the Ladbrokes Championship so he wasn't sacked or anything either.

A pretty strong month in what may be my last in charge of Hereford sees us sit 5 points inside the playoff zone.

Curious to see if you will take it, you seem to be really building something at Hereford with all the improvements to the club but it is a journeyman after all.

I think you should wait till the end of the season as you are currently in the play offs and if you get promoted then your rep will go up higher then it would if you go to TNS but whatever you decide to do you will be fine and keep up the good work.

Good read

I'd take the TNS job personally.  Pretty much guaranteed silverware and continental football.

Well I've thought about it and I'm going to take the TNS job, but have a copy of the save before I accept the job as well, just in case. Whilst we haven't made a lot of progress on the pitch we have made quite a lot of progress off the pitch and hopefully the local players will carry on to get better and help Hereford go that extra mile in the end.

The New Saints of Oswestry Town & Llansantffraid Football Club (Welsh: Clwb Pêl-droed y Seintiau Newydd), also known as The New Saints or TNS is a professional football club representing Oswestry in Shropshire, England; and Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain in Powys, Wales– the two places are 8 miles (13 km) apart. They play in the Cymru Premier, which they have won a record thirteen times – including the past eight seasons.

Founded in 1959 as Llansantffraid F.C., from 1997 to 2006, the club was known as Total Network Solutions F.C. after its sponsor. In 2003, it merged with Oswestry Town F.C. and three years later it adopted its current name.

TNS play at Park Hall in Oswestry after moving there in 2007 from the Recreation Ground in Llansantffraid. Park Hall accommodates 2,034 spectators of which 1,000 are seated and there are plans to upgrade the ground to 3,000 capacity in the future.

During your first season at TNS did they have the title wrapped up before you joined?

 

I'm managing in Wales right now too.  I'm coaching Conwy Borough F.C. right now.  I got them promoted to the premier league, but TNS is tough in that league.

They didn't, we won the league after the 4-3 win over Bala.

Good luck, TNS are tough to topple!

A very busy pre-season saw us lose the big matches early although I think we did well against AIK and then we destroyed Tre Fiori 15-2 on aggregate in my first showing in the Conference League and we face Macedonian side Shkendija in the 3rd qualifying round.

Good switch. Interesting to see, how quickly dominating the league will become boring :D

 

Titov looks really good for this level.

Well I'll be using TNS to get some more coaching badges and then just stay in charge until something better gets offered to me.

Titov really is a step above the rest, and he's not on expensive wages!

A very busy September sees us top of the league with up to 3 games in hand, we're through to face Inverness in the Scottish Challenge Cup and Caernarfon in the Welsh League Cup. We're not doing great in the Conference League but I never expected us to make the group stage in the first place.

Well that was a long old month, 12 matches in 28 days! We came through it very well though as we caught up on all the games we had in hand in the league and we're now 14 points clear in the league, we've been worse in the Conference League but still we've done no worse than expected and we'll be facing Partick Thistle in the Challenge Cup Quarter Final!

Now all we need is some good youth to come through.

From experience (at least with my DB), TNS produce some absolutely crazily good youth. Since the game has them based in England rather than Wales, they pull from England's youth rating rather than Wales. It'll only be a matter of time.

Also, TNS is super easy mode. There isn't a player from the Welsh leagues who won't join you, so you can essentially create a Cymru Prem All-Stars team. Europe is a tough nut to crack though.

November 2022

No league matches now until January due to the 2022 World Cup so November was full of cup matches, I really think we could have gotten something from the Partick Thistle game but it just wasn't to be, we do progress to the Semi Final of the Welsh League Cup though where we'll face Penybont.
