So, basically you group them geographically, and not per coefficient right? Interesting...

Yes, first group geographically. Then rank the groups by average FIFA ranking or Average UEFA coefficient. Where it makes sense for a special stage they just get priority based on an eyeball check i.e. China would be ranked pretty low, but clearly there league is one of the strongest in Asia so I adjusted that to give them a special stage. Or for example Italy, where they would have ended up geographically probably with San Marino and Malta, I decided to give them a special stage and group the minnows together by themselves.

Season 2129/30

Coupe de Martinique

fe516025ad8b882eaa3311d35690cd55.png

It was another superb cup for us as we tore through everyone up until the final, where we faced our main rivals Golden Lion and it was one goal that separated us, fortunately it went to us and we got our hands on another cup and 25 points.

We were superb this season as we built on last season's league win to put some distance between ourselves and Golden Lion as we reached the 100 point mark in the league and put 19 points between ourselves and Golden Lion. It was also an unbeaten season as we drew only two games this season and won the rest.

The team were really enjoyable this year to watch, no one beat us and the reason for that is because so many of the guys performed so well. Tony Olivier finished our top scorer with 17 goals, but Ilan Gilet also got 16 this season and numerous players got above 7 goals this season. Luke Abondo finished as top assist maker this season, the Kenyan continuing to make real process to improve in the side.

Manager Thoughts

It is another double for us and another 75 points. It is probably time to move on at this stage as the diminishing returns are really going to come into play from next season. We will check the market and see what is available and hopefully make the move. There is a very small chance that we remain at Club Franciscain for another season if there really is nothing available in the market.

Season 2030

075918f4ae92fc6adaf496d994a5d3e1.png

As soon as the Martinican season ended we had already agreed to join a new club in the island over from Martinique; Saint Lucia. We were joining Big Players, one of the better teams in St Lucia and the season was underway. The previous manager of the club had led the club into a tough spot with the club sitting in 6th and the board had had enough and dispensed with his services allowing us to come in. There was still a good section of the season left and if we hit the ground running there was no reason why we could not recover to be in the title running. We were still also involved in the cup which was another avenue for trophies and points.

St Lucia has two main competitions, the St Lucia Gold Division worth 100 points and the St Lucian FA Cup worth 50 points

St Lucian FA Cup

daf1ef3f6911a23ed26235d276c902ed.png

We took over at the club in the Quarter Final of the FA Cup and we got a very nice win over Ti Rocher 5-0 to book a place in the semi finals, but in the semi finals it was a different story as we could not find a goal against Survivals and ultimately paid the price as we exited the tournament on penalties, as we missed three penalties to allow Survivals to win 3-1 on penalties.

St Lucia Gold Division

We picked up with the club sitting in 6th, and we managed to very quickly turn things around as we beat Uptown Rebels at home 2-1 in our first fixture, from there we barely dropped a step as we rocketed up the league and by August we were in pole position looking down on the chasing pack. They never had a chance really as we continued to press our advantage and in the end we won the league by 10 points. A very nice recovery even if I do say myself and 100 points earned for us in NA9.

Most of the transfers listed had already occured when we arrived at the club, the only transfer we have done was pretty recently after we were already confirmed champions with the signature of an upgrade at goalkeeper in Portuguese Tiago Antonio. In terms of performances, the team really recovered well from the bad form they were in and once morale got high we were untouchable. Key to this were Teran Barclett, Josh Joseph, Pernal Hackett, Keeroy McFarlane and Jonathan Pyne.

Manager Thoughts

A very nice little half a season has bagged us 100 points here in St Lucia, although we could not get the job done in the cup. We will be staying another season to see if we can this time do the double which would get us another 100 points next season. Hopefully we can keep the team playing so well.

Season 2131

St Lucian FA Cup

a00f688c98921235b1674eb808b4c64d.png

We were great up until the final when we met Survivals. They managed to stay compact and keep us from scoring, before they got us on the break in extra time to deny us the cup. Very disappointing for us.

79b35b963b0993c3e9fdefe26dfcf1c7.png

It ended up being a very comfortable league win for us as we pretty much led from the first fixture until the last. In the end we take the title by 9 points to record another 50 points scored.

We delved into the transfer market to get a few players that I though would improve us. Solomon Islander Haddis Sale was a big improvement and he came in and made a big impact bagging 23 goals and holding to top rating at the club. Stuart Charles Agustin has continued where he left off last year and has been the creative force behind us, he got himself 10 assists in the year. Ewan Guichard was brilliant in defence and scored a bag full of goals from set pieces as we took full advantage this season. Keeroy McFarlane was also very dangerous from the right wing this season.

Manager Thoughts

Winning the cup would have been exactly what the doctor ordered to put us less than 100 points away from completion but we blew that to my disappointment which leaves us 125 points short. Staying could yield up to 75 points next season if we can secure a league and cup double, but we have not managed it yet and that might prove very hard. We could twist and see what is available elsewhere over the offseason in the job market that might yield more points. I am still undecided at this stage it will likely depend on what is available, I don't see a reason to resign at this stage and wait.

Love some of these club names :D

Getting close to get out of NA9!

Yeah the people of the Caribbean know how to name a club, can't beat supporting Big Players! It's close, but it feels far.

St Lucian FA Cup

We remained at Big Players because there were no other real jobs available. In the cup we were outdone again. Everything seemed to be going fine until the semi final where a leaky defence and a bad penalty shootout done for us again. No cup for us again.

No signings this season as I did not feel I needed any. Haddis Sale again was superb up front as he got another 23 goals this season. Ewan Guichard was also very good in front of goal this season as he hit the 20 goal mark at this point. Nathan Joseph was also in the goals grabbing 17. Teran Barclett was the top assist maker this season. We were very good this season much like the other season and there plenty of good performances.

In other news I was very excited that I had a son in the game, however this was not case, he just happens to be a Guatemalan regen in St Lucia with the same surname but did not have any link his favoured personnel.

Manager Thoughts

Only 25 points this season as we screwed up the cup again. It is what it is, and really at this stage I am going to be leaving the club. The deal is already sorted as I will be going back to Martinique.

Season 2132/33

d2a243f1154637924bfc9fb48e9e7029.png

We moved from St Lucia back to Martinique to take up a job at L'Aiglon de Lamentin. They are a good club but probably not expected to challenge for the title, but we wanted to change that. Due to the when the St Lucian season ended and when we joined in Martinique we only got to the club when 2 games had already been played in the league season.

Coupe de Martinique

1edf9fe566d81bbda712ff444ceb0e72.png

It was a great performance for us in the cup as we pretty much cruised to the final to play our former employer Club Franciscain in the final and we got the better of them as we won out 2-0, to get 50 points on the board.

38d4e13b12948d6f5ae3c539b93468a9.png

It was an amazing, exciting season in Martinique, we managed to go the whole season unbeaten but did have a fair few draws, so despite the unbeaten run we trailed Club Franciscain going into the final game. Fortunately it was still in our hand since the title would be decided in a winner take all final match against them. We would need to win to claim the title and Franciscain would need just a draw from the final game. Fortunately for us, we managed to repeat the cup final result as we got a good 2-0 win to claim the league title and with it 100 points and also the points we would need to complete NA9.

33f53f009f8ff590fe7356aa32c1e243.png

A fair few of the transfers had occurred prior to our arrival and we would only get to influence the transfer market about halfway through the season, once the transfer window did open we did a fair amount of business where we could with players that could improve the side.

The key players were Franck Framelin from attacking midfield and Remi Devaux from the striker postion with his 24 goals this season. But in fairness again we had a team where there were multiple contributors across the whole squad.

Manager Thoughts

Well the move worked out nicely as we managed to complete the double and those points are enough to complete NA9 and move us on to NA8. With that we will be unloading NA9 and loading NA8 which includes Cuba, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. I am intrigued by the prospect of Cuba as I think that could be an interesting country to manage in, but the goal will be the same as always we need to get to the 500 points. NA9 proved itself to be a hard area to get the points, especially in Dominica where we floundered for two season before we found our way through Martinique and St Lucia for the points we needed.

Season 2133/34

deed15669bb4aef7bbc1d770abe28862.png

After completing NA9 and leaving Martinique, we were out of a job for almost 10 months before we got a job in the Turks and Caicos Islands as the manager of Cheshire Hall. The season in the Turks and Caicos was well underway and despite sacking the manager earlier in the season Cheshire Hall were well within a shot of challenging for the title, sitting in 3rd place and not that far behind the leaders Flamingo. Our goal was to come in and lead the club to glory.

The Turks and Caicos Islands have two main competitions; the Turks and Caicos Islands Premier League worth 100 points and the Turks and Caicos Islands Presidents Cup worth 50 points

Our goal was to come in and lead the club to glory and although the team was not perfect following our arrival we managed to do just that as the teams around us also dropped points and we managed to drop a few less points that they did. It is a great achievement for me to come and instantly win 100 points without much trouble in a short period of time. The league season actually went down to the wire. We played Flamingos on the final day and we just needed a draw to win the league. Flamingos would have needed something like a 3-0 or 4-0 win to take the title, but in the end they crumbled as we took them apart 5-0 at their ground to capture the league title and claim the 100 points.

Squad

d67e7b5774f50cfbc3fcf71ce80d1ede.png

We came in late into the season and team were not playing to well to be honest. Even after we arrived and the results improved we still were not great, but we got results showing a doggedness. Ralph Jerome was the standout player in a pretty average set of performances as he finished with the top assists for the season and the top average rating.

Manager Thoughts

Very nice that we arrived in the Turks and Caicos and managed to pretty quickly pick 100 points for the league win, that will start us off nicely for NA8 and hopefully we can make short work of this rung. We will be remaining with Cheshire Hall this coming season to see if we can pick up the cup and hopefully another league title as well, which would give us another 100 points cumulatively.

Turks and Caicos Islands Presidents Cup

3126d4889d4ae68859efc4c3513aa0aa.png

Well the cup was a bit of a disaster for us as we lost in our first game, as we were forced to penalties after a 2-2 draw and could not hold our nerve from the spot.

With the loss in the Presidents Cup the first game of the season I was a little worried but we were brilliant this season as we went unbeaten to capture a second successive league title. We were never really troubled by the chasing pack and the 17 point gap to Beaches shows our dominance this season in the league. We receive another 50 points.

Squad

2f97a45dacc8ea050ecbf212827aa9d3.png

We decided to not delve into the transfer market this season as we did not really find anyone that improved us immensely. The team this season spread out the goals with 4 top goalscorers on the season, with Ralph Jerome, Jerry Guillaume, James Cadet and Rodney Sejour all managing 8 goals. Ralph Jerome was the best player this season as he also got in with a lot of assists and the top average rating.

Manager Thoughts

A disappointing cup campaign as we fell at the first hurdle but the league was brilliant from us and we do get 50 points. I think I am now considering moving on to pastures new but only for the right job. I think I will make a call in the offseason as to what is available and stay or go depending on whether there are any jobs with decent upside available.

Season 2135/36

a028091409eb8de835d5d82c22dad531.png

A job came up in Cuba at the end of their season that we liked the look of, we applied and were made the new manager of Villa Clara. They are a good side from Cuba and with the season finished we would have to offseason to work on things and get the team ready for the new season.

Cuba has a bit of a set of abnormal competitions. The teams are split into two leagues the Occidental and Oriental divisions. The top sides from both leagues, then play in the Champions Playoff which is another league with all the sides that qualfied from both sides of the country. We will only get 100 points if we win the Champions Playoff section, to be the national champions

c36ac9e2250fb5945b1b51a797527226.png

We breezed through the preliminary league season as we won all 7 of our games to qualify for the Champions Playoff section. In the Champions Playoff it was a little harder but to be honest again we had no problem getting ahead and staying ahead of the competition as we won the short league season by 5 points quite easily. That is 100 points for us.

We brought in a couple of new faces that arrived half way through the season in Fijian Epeli Tekiate and Malian goalkeeper Zoumana Zagre. I felt they added some quality to key areas. In terms of performances I can look no further than Danys Linares up front who was in unstoppable form as he bagged 18 goals in 15 appearances this season. He really looks a player for us.

Manager Thoughts

We arrived in Cuba and did exactly what I wanted us to do and that was to win the Campeonato, and we did it pretty easily. I do have a question as to whether I should stay as to be honest the points are only going to get smaller and with no cup competition there does not appear to be too much upside here. We will see what jobs become available and make an informed decision as to whether we stay or go. The Cuban season lasts for just about 3 months of the year, so the majority of time is the off season, so there should be plenty of opportunity to spot alternative jobs during the long off season.

We were unsure whether we would move away from Villa Clare, but a job came up in the Cayman Islands, that I decided to take a risk on. The club in question was George Town and they seemed like a mid table side in the Cayman Islands, but I figured it might be worth a shot to see what we could do there. We got the job in the off season, which allowed as best as possible to prepare for the coming season.

The Cayman Islands have two main competitions the Cayman Islands League worth 100 points and the Cayman Islands FA Cup worth 50 points.

We squeaked by Academy in the first round, and things seemed to be going fine against Future as we forced extra time but we imploded in extra time to a 5-1 loss to knock us out of the cup

I felt wholly unprepared for the season. We had not even been able to secure a goalkeeper for the team and so had to play a greyed out keeper all season, but somehow everything seemingly came together perfectly as we started well and the form never really ever dropped away as we won the league undefeated to secure the first ever title for the club in their history. A great 100 points to win our first season on what really was a risk to even come to the club.

We got players where we could to improve the team in the off season and we have more signings coming, but wherever we looked we could not get a goalkeeper to come to the club, and that unfortunately left us in a tough position going into the season, however it did not seem to affect us too much as we went the season undefeated. Sebatian Moxam and Marshall Browning were the key figures throughout the season as Moxam got himself goals and assists and Browning's all around play was standout for the side.

Manager Thoughts

Really happy that the risky move paid off and we secured another 100 points here in the Cayman Islands. I am unsure whether it makes sense to stay here, because I think we may struggle next season and there may be better jobs with more points on offer, but if nothing materialises we will give George Town a second run at hopefully trying to secure a double that would give us another 100 points towards NA8.

Season 2137/38

Cayman Islands FA Cup

45e2b47f2ee202a5c067ed2dd2546942.png

We suffered another early exit from the FA Cup this year as we failed to get past the first test losing on penalties after a 1-1 draw which was disappointing.

3bf1a8fe7cfdf1bc0fded9e4bbb8f8f6.png

A few too many draws is what cost us this season and the fact that Latinos were excellent this year and barely put a foot wrong, as we finished 3 points behind them in the league. No points for us from the league this season.

We lost a fair few squad players this season, and it was difficult to replace them and most of our replacement only came in half way through the season. We finally got a decent keeper in as well. We arguably might have been better this season in terms of performances but ultimately we fell short of the target. Moxam continued to be impressive this season, alongside Roach and Browning.

Manager Thoughts

No points for us this season and my prediction that things might go wrong this season was on the money. I think we overperformed last season to win the league and this season we struggled to live with Latinos who performed really well. I really don't think there is much value in remaining at the club, so I have decided to resign from my role and wait on the next job that I think is worthwhile for our purposes as we look to complete NA8.

Season 2138/39

577a3bfc75667cca1be8c2167a6a9d2d.png

After our disappointing season in the Cayman Islands we resigned from our job and it took almost exactly 3 months to find a new job, this time in the Bahamas, the only country we had not managed in within NA8. The job was a good one for us as we were selected as manager of Westside Sporting Club Renegades, arguably the biggest and best club in the Bahamas. The season had already ended so we would have a full pre-season to prepare

The Bahamas has two main competitions. The first competition is the BFA Senior League and it operates slightly differently to most normal leagues. The teams are split into two groups, with the top two teams qualifying for a playoff semi final and subsequently a final. We would only get points for winning the playoff final and not the initial group. The BFA Senior League is worth 100 points. There is also the Bahamian FA Cup which is worth 50 points.

Bahamian FA Cup

The cup would be important if we wanted a chance to finish off NA8 this season and we managed to get the job done in the cup as we breezed through to the final to play fellow group side Baha Juniors and got a pretty easy 3-0 win in the final to lift the cup and take 50 points.

The initial group stage presented very little challenge for us as we won the group by 10 points and were 17 points ahead of United FC in the first non qualification spot. The semi final drew us against Baha Juniors, the team that had finished 2nd in our own group and whom we had defeated in the cup final and again we made them pay with an easy 2-0 win. The final would see us face Bears who had overcome the group winners Future Stars in the other semi final. It was a very tough game but ultimately we got the only goal of the game to win 1-0 and receive the trophy as well as the 100 points required to finish off NA8.

b35e738f7aed1a493215e388545f21c4.png

The squad already looked decent but we delved into the market to bring in improvements where we could. In the end the key players int he squad were the very versatile Jordan Williamson who performed admirably in a number of position in defence and midfield, Travis Wood who played very well in behind the striker, Kristoff Curry his partner in crime in attacking midfield, Travis Cenecharles and Wilson Cenecharles who operated from the both the left and right wing, although Travis also played a fair bit at striker. I would say it was very much a team performance, plenty of players averaging above a 7.00 overall rating.

Manager Thoughts

We got there in the end and the 150 points this season was enough to close out NA8. I think this was the first rung where we ended up managing in every single country available to us, which was a bit of surprise, but that was just how the jobs ended up lining up for us. We will now unload NA8 and we will be loading NA7, which includes Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana. We will stop island hopping for a while to spend a bit of time in the north of the South American continent and with only 3 countries our options for clubs may be a bit more limited.

Season 2139/40

3152b41e676a74fc1032d045e26cdf78.png

We were out of a job for 10 months, before we finally managed to get a job, and it was a very good job to get as we managed to land the job at Robinhood in Suriname. They are one of the best sides in Suriname and were still in with a fighting chance of winning the league although they were already out of the cup.

Suriname has two main competitions; the Hoofdklasse which is the main league which is worth 100 points and the Surinamese Cup worth 50 points

Surinamese Cup

Already knocked out when we arrived at the club.

Hoofdklasse

e0a3a37bebe5205019fcabd7c1eed37b.png

We arrived to the club still with a shot at the league title, but we needed to be pretty consistent to be able to get close and we managed to do that well. We managed to stay consistent and won plenty of games along the way as we pulled alongside Inter Morengotapoe who were leading the league. The victory towards the end of the league between us was the key fixture as we managed to win and we got ourselves ahead in the league and that was enough to win the league. We ended up winning the league by 4 points.

Squad

a34547da3d1d9393d5c2055826274bb4.png

We have a good side, although I would say that they under performed this season for the level of talent we have available. I will be looking at the likes of Shaquille Lie A Kwie, Adilo Deyl and Gillan Kwasie to kick on next season and become better players.

Manager Thoughts

We arrived in NA7 and we got ourselves 100 points at the first time of asking. We will be remaining with SV Robinhood for the forseeable future. With only three countries available we have to acknowledge that the strategy relies on getting a few more points at each club, just because the opportunities might be fewer to get key jobs where we can win points.

Great job moving on to NA7 and getting off the ground quickly with Robinhood.

Is the Caribbean Championship part of the database you are using? That'll be a good one to add extra points once you move to better Caribbean Nations like Jamaica, T&T etc.

No I don't think the Caribbean Championship is part of it, which is why we have been forced to slog our way through the domestic leagues and get the points there. I have absolutely no idea exactly how North America works. There is a Champions League, but it doesn't seem possible for a Caribbean team to make it in, at least on the DB I am using.

That's a shame, guess you will have to wait until you get to Panama and Costa Rica to even have a shot at Continental points then - and beating Mexican teams will not be easy!

I am thinking more impossible than not easy, but we will see once we get there.

Season 2140/41

Surinamese Cup

3d88ee4cac03337ea8e4a5b7b04b5e28.png

We entered the cup with at least a pretty good chance of getting to the final or winning it and we were pretty shaky in the first two rounds as we got a narrow 1-0 win in the 2nd Round against Notch and a little winner to win again 1-0 against Inter Wanica. However from there we settled when it came to the cup and got a 3-0 win against Leo Victor to book a place in the final where we then easily beat Inter Moengotapoe 3-0 as well to lift the cup and claim 50 points.

With a full season to work with the players we were much more comfortable this season as we took the league title by 13 points from WBC. In the end we finished the season undefeated to mark a really nice performance this season and I felt we found another gear from last season which is good. A second league title gives us another 50 points.

Squad

We brought in a few new faces to the club, but the key thing for me was to get the best out of the guys who would make a difference like I mentioned at the end of last season and we certainly did that. Kwasie got a goal a game 32 goal haul which is a fantastic achievement as he really came on this season to be a proper key player for us up front. Jeremy Copeland who came in from Alpha United of Guyana ended up being a key player, as we deployed him just behind the striker and he picked up 19 assists and 12 goals and the top average rating. I am really happy with the squad, I think we improved and looked a lot better this season.

Manager Thoughts

Another 100 points bagged and we did very well this season to achieve the double. Normally at this point I would be looking to move on but when there are only three countries I like to be a little conservative and make sure we pick up key points in countries we are participating in as I would not at this stage like to go up against this Robinhood side in Suriname, so for that reason getting another 50 points next season for a double would leave us needing to repeat the feat in Suriname elsewhere without necessarily needing to rely on managing another side in Suriname and going up against our current team.

Season 2141/42

Surinamese Cup

450464d8c4328d749481b2b6d5cf9570.png

We did not blow anyone away in the cup but also did not let anything up as we went the entire competition without conceding a goal. In the end we overcame Inter Rica in the final 1-0 to claim another cup and another 25 points.

Hoofdklasse

497232d3b0173e579f64ef97b8a9209e.png

It was another very easy league title for us as we were really the only consistent club this season and we barely put a foot wrong all season as we claimed another league title. In the end the margin of victory was 27 points which considering it is a 30 game league season is probably about a big a gap as one could conceive. We claim another 25 points for the title win.

It really was another season of the Jeremy Copeland and Gillan Kwasie show as Copeland set them up and Kwasie put them in the net. To be honest everyone else was a bit part player in what we did in attack as they really shone in this side.

Manager Thoughts

Another 50 points, marks the halfway point from a points perspective of NA7 and we are now ready to move on from SV Robinhood as we now just need to replicate the success in Suriname somewhere else, which of course will be easier said than done. We will be resigning our role to make ourselves as attractive as possible for other clubs that might become available but it was a very nice way to finish up here in Suriname. Realistically we will be looking if possible to move to Guyana and French Guiana as I think it will be difficult to topple Robinhood with someone else here.

Season 2142/43

a8a4c87be6ea2a363a0fa9a269483bb1.png

Upon leaving SV Robinhood in Suriname we were out of work for nearly 3 months before the perfect job seemingly appeared on our radar, as Western Tigers, the champions in Guyana, now had a vacancy at head coach as the manager decided to step down from his role. We were offered the job and so would have the off season to work on the campaign for the following season. Western Tigers to be honest were probably not the best team in Guyana, probably in the top three, but not expected to take the title so the previous manager had done a very good job. The squad was good but small and in need of improvement to firm up our chances of repeating the title victory.

Guyana has two main competitions, the GFF National Super League worth 100 points and the GFA Knock-Out Tournament worth 50 points.

GFA Knock-Out Tournament

11cff683ee9be67d5417bd920c628a17.png

The cup did not go that well for us as we were knocked out by 2nd Division opposition on penalties, something that I have had to repeat a lot of times throughout my career in cup competition. More often than not when it comes down to kicks from 12 yards my teams don't get the job done.

GFF National Super League

65806ca6218ab95b64a0cb19959bb20c.png

We were very good in the league and completed an unbeaten season to take the league title. Alpha United had a pretty decent season themselves but still finished 11 points behind us showing our superiority in this competition this season. We get 100 points for the title win.

Squad

f82dc6ce6abbb2fc45719ab14ae297b6.png

f7d08923a11568417064310ba58e6d6b.png

We went pretty crazy in the transfer window, partly because when I arrived we had a tiny squad, which we knew we would need to supplement pretty heavily, but the main reason why there were so many arrivals came down to not really having a big enough scouting personnel to scout the number of players I felt I needed so we had to take punts on players based on partial information we knew about them. Quite often the players we brought in were not massive improvements to the key players we already had but as a minimum we added some good depth.

When it came to performances, there are two key players to highlight; Kevin Richardson who was a goal machine up front with 23 goals in 20 appearances and Denzil Europe one of the new arrivals who got 12 assists and got the best average rating and that included Richardson who scored on average at least a goal a game.

Manager Thoughts

A shame about the cup, but at least we got the 100 points for the league. I think it makes sense to remain unless there is a legitimate opportunity where we think we could get a double with a new club that would give us 150 points (the amount of points we still need to advance from NA7) in a season for a league and cup and I am not sure that kind of job is likely to come up over the off season, but if it does we may be interested.

072b07c7f9d40969c34ff1df6e3a88a0.png

We were outstanding this year in the cup. as we pretty much took everyone we played apart. Eventually we arrived in the final to play Guyana Defence Force, and we got a very nice and comfortable 3-0 win. 50 points earned.

02d61a3e9bd567af1d49fc104c6224ab.png

We started well although we did suffer a loss and a draw, but after that we went on a run of games where we continued to win, that essentially means we had no challengers this season in the league as we ran out clear league champions winning the league by 12 points in the end. Thats another 50 points for us.

Squad

da6b7afc982547ed04b93001aec86dbf.png

f57d0d956d978545d3ec94f4fed8c85b.png

We got in two players over the transfer window as we picked up Kris Bobb, who looks like a great addition and Abner Garcia from Guatemala who also looks good. However the key again this season was Kevin Richardson and Denzil Europe once again. Richardson bagged himself 21 goals this season and Europe was brilliant as well with 8 goals and 12 assists. Those two guys are the key for us.

Manager Thoughts

We picked up another 100 points and that leaves us 50 points from finishing NA7. Technically next season if we repeat the achievement at Western Tigers that will be enough to finish things up here, but we will need the double so it is a lot to ask of us and the team, but it makes sense to stay as we are more than capable of doing it again.

Season 2144/45

GFA Knock-out Tournament

a914a69ef5d759a54d6bd603418aed9b.png

We were back in the cup and we were very good, our two toughest games came against Buxton United in the 2nd Round and the semi final against Fruta Conquerors where we only won by 1 goal. In the final we faced BV/Triumph whom I expected to win and we beat them easily 3-0. That is another 25 points, meaning we just needed the league to finish NA7.

GFF National Super League

The league was pretty simple for us as we lost one and drew one and won every other game. We ended up being top of the league pretty much from start to finish and ended up winning the league by 17 points. That is the 25 points we needed to finish NA7.

Only one signing in Rishawn Adams who was a decent Guyanese player who was out of contract, but generally our team was pretty complete for me. Abner Garcia became the main striker this season and he got himself 18 goals replacing Kevin Richardson as the main guy up front. Denzil Europe continued to be the beast in attacking midfield and our most important player.

Manager Thoughts

Those points are enough to finish off NA7 as we got the job done between Suriname and Guyana. We are now going to unload NA7 and load NA6 which will consist of Monserrat, Antigua, Guadeloupe and St Kitts & Nevis. We are back in the islands and it will be interesting to see how tough it will be to complete NA6.

Season 2146/47

002cfab47c7f01f56f2b9c1dd188d575.png

We left Guyana and it was a long while before we found a job, specifically 13 months. Eventually we did find a job in St Kitts & Nevis at Newtown United. The season had just ended there and the club had finished in 3rd place and the manager was sacked. Newtown United are one of the better sides in the country and we would be looking to hunt down some points.

Newtown United have three main competitions, the SKNFA Digicel Premier League worth 100 points, the St Kitts & Nevis FA Cup worth 50 points and the SKNFA President's Cup worth 30 points.

SKNFA President's Cup

b28fd00e8e996c58a1f43f08089916ea.png

We got as far as the semi finals before we were dumped out by Superstars 2-0. No points for us in the President's Cup.

St Kitts & Nevis FA Cup

95026a206dd8b132b99064341c56213c.png

The FA Cup was a different story for us as this time we got past Superstars in the semi final 2-1 to set up a final against Bath United, and we came through 3-2 thanks to a brilliant 10 minute spell where we scored all three goals to take the match. 50 points earned for the cup win.

We were absolutely superb this season as we went the league season undefeated. For a very long period of the league season Superstars were on our tail, but eventually a few results went awry for them and we managed to forge ahead and in the end we won the league very comfortably by 12 points and take another 100 points.

783f34d1c73bc26eb2c8b4ef57da4c8b.png

We brought in a few new faces particularly in the right midfield and attacking midfield role where I felt we were very light on arriving to the club. In the end the key players were Nile Wigley from the left who was brilliant this season, new signing Gavin Holland was great in behind the striker and Shane Stockton and Raheem Gumbs shared the striker position and remaining attcking midfield role and for 30 goals between them, with Stockton taking 18 of those.

Manager Thoughts

A good start to NA6 as we get to grips with St Kitts & Nevis and get the first points on the board with the league and FA Cup win this season. We did not manage to win the President's Cup but we will have a go next season. We will be remaining at the club for another season looking to build on this start.

Season 2147/48

SKNFA President's Cup

b26545ab712530f93e0cead43bda32cc.png

Our President's Cup this year we kept things pretty tight as we beat Southstars in the first game with an extra time goal for a 1-0 win. Next was Rivers of Living Water who again we beat 1-0 late on. In the semi final we faced Saddlers United and got a 2-0 win to book a place in the final where we got the win against Superstars 1-0 win an early goal. That is another 30 points for us.

St Kitts & Nevis FA Cup

68776bbcd0a05a378dfbbf456f4a4612.png

We got a 6-0 win in the opening round against Highlights, to breeze into the next round. Garden Hotspurs gave us a tough game as we needed extra time to win 2-1. The semi finals saw us beat St Paul's United 4-0 easily, but in the final we unfortunately lost to Superstars 1-0 as we never got going and suffered the consequences. No points for us.

SKNFA Digicel Premier League

We were incredible in the league this season as completed not only an unbeaten season but a perfect season as we won all 22 games in the season. With the league win we get 50 points.

0807e6817c856ad4dad15173a64c911e.png

We brought in only one signing in Miroslav Stanojev, for some reason he appears in the transfer sheet for the season before, he is a good centre back from Serbia.

One man deserves all the plaudits this season as Shane Stockton, was amazing this season and scored himself 34 goals in 30 appearances.

Manager Thoughts

We had a very impressive season with the league and President's Cup wins. The FA Cup loss was a bit annoying but we will have to accept it at the end of the day. We played very well this season, and I am unsure whether we will be staying for another season due to the diminishing returns that will be on their way.

A great peformance as we won the President's Cup without conceding a goal, another 15 points for us.

St Kitts & Nevis FA Cup

dea443a8df1b343fb4cd8c394ae2f195.png

We started the season amazingly but towards the end of the season we started dropping points. It all came down to the final game against Superstars. In a normal league with goal difference the decider then we would not have lost any sleep over the game as Superstars would have needed to batter us, but the league was decided on random lots for teams finishing on the same points, and Superstars did get the win, but unfortunately for them we were randomly chosen as the champions. Lucky for us, although deserved considering the goal difference advantage we had. Another 25 points in the bag.

7cd75d54504b319343d8222b963327b8.png

We brought in a few new faces into the club as we seem to have an agent from Serbia that delights in letting us know about their players, which we often are interested in, but the main man continues to be Shane Stockton, who hit a goal a game 26 goals this season, and also topped assists and average rating for a very fine season.

Manager Thoughts

We have done a very good job here, but it is now time to move on. We were close to moving at the start of this season but the moves never materialised as the clubs that we were interested in snubbed us. We will now be resigning to make ourselves more attractive. We have at least got ourselves over halfway in NA6, so most of the hard work is already complete, we just need some success somewhere else.

Season 2149/50

921e3efec4d84984ecc099713fc87e8d.png

We were out of work for only a week and a half before we found a new job in Antigua and Barbuda. The club in question was Grenades, who had been doing pretty well in the league but had not won the league for 8 or so years. Our goal was to bring them back to glory.

Antigua and Barbuda has just one competition, the Digicel/Red Stripe Premier Division worth 100 points.

932fa4e0b4e7b3b7633d9d91b66b1816.png

It was a very good season for us in charge of Grenades as we led the side to an unbeaten season and the league title crown as a result. In the end were 9 points clear of 2nd placed Liberta and 3rd placed Five Islands.

5aa43a6cb7f10668ea4ada3f02f4679b.png

We had to bring in a fair few players to fill in some gaps in the team and also because we had a fair few players leaving the club. The key man for us was Luther Warner up front as he got himself 12 goals this season in 18 appearances and came away with the best average rating.

Manager Thoughts

It is a successful start in Antigua as we get 100 points on the board and that start bringing us close to the finish. As Antigua only has one competition, we will need to move on eventually to a new club before we will be able to complete NA6, it's just how the mathematics will work out with the diminishing returns, however we should stay another season to bring us below the 100 points needed threshold that will mean another league title will seal it. So the goal next season is to get the 50 points on the board for another league title and then seek out another club.

What league pack are you using to get all of the countries playable?

Timo's, but be aware that there are some bugs, I think loading some second divisions with B teams causes issues.

We brought in a few new faces this year to bolster the squad but it was still Luther Warner up front that was the main guy this season. Gordon Joseph from right back was also pretty bloody good this season too with 11 assists.

Manager Thoughts

We got ourselves another 50 points which puts us on the brink of finishing NA6, we now need to move on from Grenades and find a new job where we can get the full points required to finish up this rung.

Getting through NA nicely, will be interesting once you get to mainland Central America!

Yeah especially when your logo also has a grenade on it.

Not too far away now from the Central American countries.

We left Grenades in April and eventually we got a job at Liberta Blackhawks also in Antigua & Barbuda. This was a calculated risk as clearly we had built up Grenades to be the top team in the country so although Liberta were good, we would need to improve a lot.

We had a wonderful season as we did not lose a game as we went the season undefeated, ending up as title winners, winning the league by 16 points from Parham. Grenades finished 3rd which would be disappointing by their standards. That is the 100 points we needed to finish up in NA6.

Squad

ba0f4e8ccbe2d235eac6a415c961ffcb.png

d8ab52daf4a83f9b4241d992f87c869b.png

We decided we had to improve the team so we got in a few new faces to supplement the players we already had. Four main players who were key to us was centre midfielder Ocie Quashie, James Joseph on the right wing, Keiran Thomas who played ostensibly as striker, and Rodrick Harriette who played at left back and centre back.

Manager Thoughts

The job is complete with NA6 as we got the job done finally at Libertas Blackhawks, with the title win. We will now be unloading the countries from NA6 and loading the countries with NA5 which will include Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and Trinidad and Tobago. So it will be more Caribbean countries and there should be some interesting countries to go through.

We were out of work for about a year and a half as we waited for a job. Eventually we got a job in Bonaire at Atletiko Tera Cora, who the press felt were one of the best sides on the island. Our goal was to push for the league title this season.

Bonaire has two main competitions the Bonaire Kampionato worth 100 points and the Bonaire Kopa FFB worth 50 points.

7c1b1eb18cac97ead39e00ad735e0f98.png

We started badly, improved a bit and ended awfully. The team was very probably not as good as everyone thought they were and very fragile to losses. We had very little in attack and really struggled with scoring goals. At the end of the day, finishing 3rd, the board were not very happy, but the cup performance, made sure that we were done for as manager and we were relieved of our duties before the final match in the group stages of the cup.

Manager Thoughts

Not a great way to start things getting sacked. Things did not work at all, we could not motivate the team at all and everytime we lost, the team was badly affected by adverse results that we got. We will need to lick our wounds and find a new job to resolve our predicament as we sit for the first time in our career on minus points for any rung of the ladder.

After our atrocious display in Bonaire, we were out of a job for a while until we got the job at Racing Club Aruba in Aruba. They were one of the better sides in Aruba and we would be looking to do a better job than we did at our last club, and trying to recover the situation as best as possible.

There are two competitions in Aruba, the Aruban Division di Honor which is worth 100 points, but importantly it has a playoff stage, so we only get the 100 points if we win the playoff stage. The other competition is the Aruban Copa Libertador Betico Croes worth 50 points.

We won both the regular season, which gives us no points and the champions playoff which does give us 100 points. We were by quite a way the best team in the league this season and it was well deserved that we walked away with the trophy and the points for ourselves.

Two names stand out for me this season, Raymond Linscheer who was the main man up front and Ethan Dania who was the creative force behind the team this year.

Manager Thoughts

Thankfully we have corrected last years mistakes and we get back to zero points from where we started NA5. Hopefully now we can start making progress toward our required total of 500.

Aruban Copa Libertador Betico Croes

Last year we got stopped in the final, but this year we went a step further and it was not even close in the final as we put an exclamation point our win with a 5-0 final win. 50 points earned for the cup win.

We crushed the regular season as we were way ahead in first place, but found it a little tougher in the second phase although in the end we finished well ahead winning the Champions Playoff by 5 points for another league title win and another 50 points.

Alex Jiminez was the guy up front this season and he was very good for us as he got 18 goals, but the main man in the team continues to be Ethan Dania as he bagged 16 assists and averaged an 8.01. Another guy that was a clear standout was Shemuel Robert this season as he was directly involved in 27 goals either scored or assisted.

Manager Thoughts

Well we have managed to recover to record the first positive points of this leg of the journey. At this point I feel it is probably time to move on to pastures new due to the diminishing returns at least our time in Aruba has got us back on track and where we needed to be.

Glad things are back on track, would be interesting to see you in T&T as that is probably one of the strongest Caribbean leagues.

Yeah T&T would be good as I see their teams are getting into the Champions League, but the jobs have barely ever come up so far.
