    I didn't get to buy Steven Morrison, but I did get to loan him, and he had a fairly decent debut against league leaders Hearts. 5 other new players also had their debuts in this game.13 games left of the season, 22 points to the top of the table. Bring it on!

    My first season in Spain comes to an end and I guess 5th is reasonable considering no one, literally no-one wants to sign for me.
    Even my existing staff ant to stay. My physio's contract is nearly up and he refuses to sign another. No other physio is interested in joining either.

    If the opportunity arises, I may have to make a sideways step to another 'B' because I'm not sure what I can do to improve on this finish.

    My first season in Sweden turned out pretty good. Free players did the trick for me and I managed to get 19 players in during the season to fill up a match day squad. Initially I had no money and became more deeply in debt after the signings, but as the results started to go my way the attendance rose and made me finish the season with a small pile of money in the bank. We were knocked out of the cup in the first game by a non league team so full focus was on winning the league and get promoted.

    As for the result, the season was pretty much a race between me, Mjällby and Landskrona. After Landskrona was out of the promotion race they faced Mjällby in the second to last game of the season which gave me the opportunity to secure the title. However, I lost my game so it didn't matter that Mjällby lost too. I still had it all in my own hands before the last game though, as I was to face Landskrona. This was the table with one game to go.

    No mate, I actually started B with a club called Barnadas and had to start from stratch. Then the motherboard gave in just after CdR semi final first leg, saved the hard drive though so only had to go back to the end of the transfer window. Which is about 6 hours gameplay with all leagues on max DB

    Still not entirely sure why my own save game crashed. I've started a new save game as a test and it got beyond the 02/08/17 date where my original save game crashed. The only thing I noticed was that it crashed with the Confederations Cup going on.

    Looks like I'll have to start all over again with Ards!

    Signed a 36 year old Lionel Messi on a free transfer as a player/coach. First chance of silverware this season was in the Spanish Super Cup, where we went down 3-1 to Barcelona on aggregate. We also missed a penalty in each leg . I think I'm here for the long haul.

    Don't get why it's happening on this date. I'm going again now on mine, fingers crossed it'll be OK this time.

    League Cup won with Coleraine against the team in 2nd in the league.



    Transfers so far this season...I've put the ungrateful bastards in the black finally...





    The patented 4-1-2-1-2 has worked so far. Quite a lot of loanees. The deal of the season was the free transfer of Jose Baxter. No idea why. I asked, he said yes. Due to the players I sold he got 500 quid a week. Still a bargain. The other freebie, a injury ravaged Joe Dudgeon is on 350 quid a week.

    Blindly, and perhaps a little stupidly I took the first job that came up...



    Should have checked the league position first...



    Still, there's a little cash. Plus I'll put loads on the market.

    Get relegated and Conference North will be easy. I think that also gets you an invite to the FA Vase. You're not going to win the conference from there, so why not make life easy for next season.

    Second season in Sweden and we've got closer. But still some way away from top.
    We are still in the cup though which wraps around from one season to the next so will focus on that at the start of next season.

    Finally



    We were terrible in the league and went out in the last 32 of the cup so it was EL or bust.

    Ended up using this tactic which seemed to be most effective:

    This was doubtless my best achievement though:
