    Done and dusted. Got hired by Croatia Grabovnika. More lower league than I can handle. Let's see if we can get out of this hellhole and land a decent D job.

    Had to start again, think I was using the wrong patch as getting a crash in June. No harm really as I went 7 months unemployed

    Using Saturn's one this time, had a Tapani patch installed last time but not too sure which one. I can't seem to be able to get any decent players this time

    It was tough the first season, but for the second one (still with Ards since no one wants me) I got 20 new players through bosman.

    Time to go looking for some B's





    Might lower Xabi Alonso's regen's min fee release which is 2.5m at the moment (x2 setting). An absolute dinger

    First season done and we ended in a not overly impressive but not too bad either 5th place. The team was crap, the players who arrived in January were very varying, one (a Romanian attacker) ended up as my best player but another ended up as one of my worst. Hopefully the 15+ players arriving in the summer will be more like the former.

    A bit drop from Benfica there, Derm

    Looks like it'll take everyone a few years to land the top jobs, makes a change from the last one though!

    Spain 2B is a place to keep an eye on when the season updates, usually between 8-12 managerless clubs get promoted. Lots of nations like this but will get a bit lesser into the future.

    You all go totally hardcore and tick Apply button on all the clubs beforehand

    A Done. An ARD task considering the grandads we had at our disposal. But achieved nonetheless.




    Stayed in N.Ireland for "B" with Ballymena who sacked their manager just after I had received news of our title win. Squad is a bit better than with Ards, But still a fair task ahead. Squad could do with a couple of additions, but the lack of funds again are a hindrance. Loan market it is then.

    So unfortunate! Yes Cherry would have sealed the deal. An Ards legend already! Won fans player of the year for me the first year and the only one who was in the club when I came in who has a spot in the starting 11. Great player!

    Like some of you, I had the chance to tick 'A' off after just five months in the role, having reached the League Cup Final knocking out Bangor and Glenavon along the way. Carrick Rangers were our opponents and we fell behind twice before then losing a substitute in the 76th minute that left me with 10 men. Surprisingly, we equalised a couple of minutes later and looked to be heading to extra time when Carrick Rangers popped up with a 90th minute winner. Gutting!



    I had hoped to make amends by winning the Irish Cup instead but it was not to be, losing 2:1 to Bangor in the 6th Round.

    That meant the focus was on the league itself which is a big ask with the ageing squad. I was surprised to see us cope reasonably well though and work our way up to 2nd to compete with Warrenpoint after a slow start to the season. Warrenpoint though kept moving out of our reach despite our best efforts but we did secure a playoff place with four games to go, being 5 points behind the leaders. Annoyingly, Warrenpoint often had a game in hand and just as we closed the gap on them, they'd open it up each time with that game in hand. It came to a head at this point though as they lost and we won to close the gap to two points and guess who we played next? That's right, Warrenpoint who we'd already played 3 times and had yet to lose! The result was a sweet 6:2 victory!



    A crucial win and we'd moved in front by a point. The final match was against 6th placed Knockbreda where another win was all that we needed to secure the title. A draw could do it, of course, but I wanted there to be no doubt. Warrenpoint were away at Armagh who had been a tough team for me to beat. But we did as I requested and won the title with a 5:0 win! We certainly did win the title in style having scored 23 goals in 5 games!



    There were indeed some ageing players in the squad and I sold three players (David McCullough for 12K, Ian Lester for 3K and David McMaster for 100K) to try and clear the debt, signing only 3 of my own (youth players Keith Beirne and Christian Scales and a Finnish striker called Albert Kuqi). Robbie Knox gets my player of the season award, scoring 17 goals up front for me but special mentions to his partner Gary Liggett whilst Ryan Henderson, Ian McGrath and Kyle Cherry got into double figures from midfield too.



    At the time of winning the title, I'm only third in rankings in Northern Ireland and a massive 6137th in the world rankings!



    Job wise, I can't see any 'B' jobs available at the moment so I'll continue trying to build my reputation at Ards!
