    End of my first season.
    Similar to GFRay but not quite as successful.
    Youri Loen is already a living legend for me. What a season!

    Despite losing the final, we still made Europe which is a pleasant surprise.
    Need to get the squad up to scratch now though.

    This isn't really my kind of challenge, I'm afraid. Now the game stops working all the time, even when on holiday, so I'm already out before I was properly in...

    Into my fifth season. Got 4th and 2nd in the Eredivisie and boy it's hard. A stadium this small does not produce any real income so I have to ship every half decent player to "bigger" clubs.
    We will be playing Champions League football though! That should be fun.

    My world wide reputation is still pisspoor however and not a club in the world is willing to hire me. Best settle in for a long, long challenge.

    Are you playing non wibwob?

    I'm playing wibwob for this challenge and I'm top of the league with a 13-0-0 record. Only Ajax can keep up so far going 11-0-0.

    Just reached the end of Season 2 here. Damn right it's gonna be a long haul.
    Near on 20 points off the top of the table. Can't see me overhauling these big two for some time.


    I got just 3.2m for finishing third. Bear in mind this is higher values and that is a pittance!

    Stanley Elbers, signed in a swap deal that took Radinio Balker to Zwolle, was the star man for the season.

    Season update. 3.9m given for TV rights.
    Measly 1500 seats added to stadium costing 7.25m.

    Money virtually gone.

    1st July. I'm offering a trial to anyone who's name I vaguely recognise.

    Lewis Baker, Vaclav Cerny, Jefferson Montero, Rhian Brewster have all accepted.
    Wonder if they will accept a contract when I offer them a full time one?

    Safe to say none of them were enticed by the 16,000 a week I could offer them!

    My top centre mid has had his min fee release met.
    Lewis Baker finally decided he wanted to come as his replacement.
    Could derail my season with him leaving though. Currently top and unbeaten but the big two are hot on my heels.

    PSV may have just done me a massive favour here!!


    We have Ajax to play on 23rd April.

    Make or break. One match shootout for the title effectively!

    Well that was an anti climax.
    Jasper Cillessen has had an absolute shocker. Four shots. Four goals.
    Five point lead, three games to play!

    In my second attempt, some of the Almere City players were looking much better and I also decided to spend the cash that was available at the start of the season. Because of their quality, a couple of the original men were sold for good money, but the same technical problems with the save game appeared. This time I was even more motivated to find a solution and changing the compatibility mode seems to be all that's needed. I guess that run of seven games without a win during the second half of the season didn't keep our title hopes alive...

    As it turned out we won our next game whilst Ajax could only draw with Groningen (with Arjen Robben as player/manager in a creer that's come full circle) so with two games to go.......



    TO THE JOB CENTRE!

    There are minimal jobs available. Best available and only top flight job is Wisla Pulawy, who are on the verge of relegation in Poland.

    I'm ranked 18th in Holland and 1755th in the world, slightly better than the manager of Cape Verde!

    Don't think I'll have that good again for a while!

    I am getting sick and tired of Almere City. Somehow I Always end up behind Ajax (grrrr) and having max 3000 fans in the stadium doesn't help either.

    The second season in the Eerste Divisie kicked off with two excellent cup wins (against non-professional teams in the group phase), scoring thirteen times and our striker signed up for seven of those. We didn't start that well in the league, but managed to find the right gear after a few weeks. Again cashing in on a couple of key players probably caused yet another winless run of seven. The board would be content with a respectable league position, but half the squad became unhappy (with me) when we dropped just one place on the table... Need to get them back on board as soon as possible!

    I wasn't able to bring in any better calibre of player to be fair. The only thing I did differently was completely upgrade my backroom team. That seemed to make the difference to me.

    We somehow lost our mojo and were all over the place for way too long...
