    Some big money dropping now. I think it's still crazy how some of us still are in lower leagues. Our stats are way better than most surely!

    Meh - instrumental in getting us promotion then they don't really bother playing me - typical stuff from a promoted side and don't trust in them that got them up

    Pleased to play a few more times for Wales though

    Lovely stuff as ever John Arneeeeeeeee

    Yeah I'm also surprised at the lack of internationals. Wales should be trying to persuade me daily to play for them!

    June 2026

    Just the one transfer in the mid-season window - I'm on the move again after my short stint at the Etihad!

    • riise, Manchester City to Sunderland, 7,000,000


    Brackley are now falling like a stone, and are probably grateful that there are a few worse teams than them, as they plummeted to 19th in the National League.
    Spoiler!


    adnams - Manchester City, Premier League
    Manchester City are back near where they belong, finishing 3rd after a few so-so seasons. That's in no small part thanks to adnams, who scored a remarkable 29 goals (along with 10 assists) in 35 games in his first season at the club. Still on the fringes of the England squad, any hopes he had of featuring for his country in the World Cup in Canada were scuppered when he tore his groin muscle in the final game of the season.
    Spoiler!


    AJ - Accrington Stanley, League One
    AJ played more games this season than he managed in the previous five seasons combined. Perhaps unfortunately for him, they were all for Accrington after Bournemouth's interest in him came to nothing. Scoring 7 times in 54 appearances on his way to a 7.80 average rating undoubtedly helped propel Stanley to 2nd, securing an instant return to the Championship - he'll be hoping that he's done enough to be one of the first names on the teamsheet in the second tier.
    Spoiler!


    AtomicAnt - Southampton, Premier League
    It seems that any hope AtomicAnt had of getting more games at Southampton than he was doing at Spurs aren't really coming to fruition. He barely featured more this season than last, seeing action 13 times (10 times from the bench), scoring a solitary goal in otherwise adequate displays. The Saints have also returned to a more normal-looking position in the league - 10th, so no European football, despite reaching the Europa League Final! Alas, they went down 1-0 to Premier League rivals Arsenal and our man wasn't in the matchday squad.
    Spoiler!


    CMCZ - Coventry City, Championship
    CMCZ has fit in seamlessly at The Sky Blues, stepping in and racking up 49 appearances alongside Easah Suliman in the Coventry defence. He even managed 5 goals from the back, but he'll be disappointed that, despite his best efforts, his side could only manage to finish 16th, albeit it 12 points from relegation trouble.
    Spoiler!


    Craig Forrest - Olympiacos, Super League Greece
    It might not look great that Craig Forrest continues to concede goals in Greece, but his impressive average rating of 7.37 would indicate that he's not the problem in the Olympiacos back five. That was good enough for him to regain his place in the Canada squad, and with immaculate as they head into their home World Cup. However, it'll be a shock if they emerge from a group containing Belgium, Uruguay and Cameroon.
    Spoiler!


    Dermotron - Leicester City, Championship
    Dermotron continued to do Dermotron things in the second half of the campaign, ending up with 34 goals in 50 games. With Leicester only managing to come 13th in the league - a massive 14 points off the playoff places - you have to wonder where the hell they'd be without the Irishman. Quite rightly, he thinks the club is underachieving and wants to move to a bigger club.
    Spoiler!


    drkshadow1 - Birmingham City, Championship
    drkshadow1 seems to be 'the 12th guy' in this Birmingham team - stepping in when one of their first-choice midfielders isn't available. That's amounted to a total of 31 games this time around, but only adding a single goal to the 5 he managed before Christmas. He seems happy enough being used sparingly for The Blues, who finished up in 10th.
    Spoiler!


    dweatherston11 - Cardiff City, Championship
    Just another start and another substitute appearances dragged dweatherston11 to a paltry 6 appearance - he did score again in his limited opportunities, making it 2 goals on the season for a Cardiff side that survived in the Championship by the skin of their teeth in 21st, just a couple of points clear of the drop zone. Happily, though, he got his fifth Scotland cap, coming off the bench to replace Oliver Burke to lead the line in a 2-0 friendly defeat against Cameroon. He remains transfer listed by request, unsurprisingly.
    Spoiler!


    ebfatz - Burton Albion, League One
    He's not exactly been short of appearances in recent seasons, but ebfatz has set a personal best of 51 games this time. He'll probably be disappointed that so many matches led to only 14 goals, given that he managed 20 in the last couple of campaigns. Burton sound as though they were safe-ish in 16th, but closer inspection reveals that they survived by just a point. He seems happy enough - in fact, he wants a new contract.
    Spoiler!


    Erkifino - Chesterfield, National League
    6th in the National League sounds better than it is for Erkifino's Chesterfield - in reality, they were 14 points away from promotion. Niggling thigh and calf injuries for the Irish midfielder meant that he manged 'just' 40 appearances. He's happy to stay at club; probably just happy to be playing football after his neglect at Brackley.
    Spoiler!


    evesham - Liverpool, Premier League
    Algerian centre-back evesham racked up a half-century of games for Liverpool this season as they repeated the feat of the 1999 Manchester United squad, winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. In fact, evesham proudly wore the captain's armband in both the FA Cup Final against Spurs and the Champions League Final against AC Milan - rumour has it that he's eyeing up a 'You'll Never Walk Alone' tattoo over the summer.
    Spoiler!


    generalsmuts - Brentford, Premier League
    generalsmuts fell off a cliff in his second season at Brentford, managing 13 appearances, but just 2 of them from the start. The aforementioned conservative approach did The Bees no good as they finished 19th, falling through the trap door.
    Spoiler!


    mikecoxon - Maidenhead United, National League North
    The move to Maidenhead certainly hasn't seen an upturn in fortunes for mikecoxon. He at least made his league debut for his new club, who tend to prefer Adnane Tighadouini on the left wing. The Moroccan international is retiring, though - can our man step in? Maidenhead came 3rd, securing promotion to the National League, so it's not exactly looking hopeful for him personally.
    Spoiler!


    Redknapp69 - Celta, La Liga
    15 more games for Redknapp69 in the second half of the season took him to 26, indicating that he's at least in the manager's thoughts, even if he's not a guaranteed starter these days. Surprisingly, he neither scored nor assisted after the turn of the year, and that may have hurt Celta, who went straight back down to the Segunda Liga after finishing 19th, 5 points from safety. He won his eighth cap for Wales, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 friendly victory over Croatia.
    Spoiler!


    riise - Sunderland, Premier League
    riise lasted barely a year at Manchester City, leaving for Sunderland for the exact same fee they paid for him. He's not walked right into the team but when he has played - 16 times - it's always been from the start. Dawid Kownacki is the man most often in his way, but he seemed to be winning that battle towards the end of a season that saw The Black Cats finish pretty much nowhere in 13th.
    Spoiler!


    samsami - Cardiff City, Championship
    samsami continues to buck the trend by getting games at Cardiff. He ends up with 31 appearances this season, scoring 5 times and grabbing 3 assists. He might be the only professional footballer willing to admit that he's enjoying playing for The Bluebirds, who (as mentioned), barely survived in the Championship, coming 21st.
    Spoiler!


    Spectral - Cagliari, Serie A
    Our man out in Italy is happy at Cagliari, despite slipping into the background somewhat. He performed pretty well in his 17 appearances - scoring 6 and assisting 6 when afforded the opportunity. Unfortunately, after years of toying with the concept, his side finally suffered relegation to Serie B... they went into the final game of the season needing to beat 17th-placed Pescara by two goals... they won 1-0.
    Spoiler!


    SteveHarle - Newcastle United, Championship
    SteveHarle continues to play All. The. Time. for Newcastle, amassing 55 appearances, scoring 12 goals and laying on 9 assists as his The Magpies came 3rd, agonisingly missing out on promotion despite their remarkable 91 points. After battling past Stoke in the playoff semis, they well and truly came unstuck in the final, getting slapped 5-1 by Blackburn. He played another game for Malta, scoring odd goal in a 3-2 friendly victory over mighty Gambia.
    Spoiler!


    trunky - St. Gallen, Swiss Super League
    Icelandic defender trunky's second season was pretty much as good as his first - 11 man of the match awards in 40 appearances saw him score 3 times and assist twice along the way. The most-capped of The Brackley Bunch, trunky marked his 35th cap with the opening goal in Iceland's 2-0 friendly victory over Bulgaria. That's probably where Blackburn (who are, of course, now a Premier League side) saw him - they're keen to bring him back to England.

    December 2026

    A few interesting moves in the summer saw a couple of the Brackley Bunch that were playing in Europe return to England.

    • CMCZ, Coventry City to Newcastle United, 8,250,000
    • Redknapp69, Celta to Brighton and Hove Albion, 10,500,000
    • trunky, St. Gallen to Blackburn Rovers, 3,500,000


    Brackley are faring better than they were last season, but their improvement has only landed in 10th - not particularly close to either promotion or relegation.
    Spoiler!


    adnams - Manchester City, Premier League
    adnams was starting most of Manchester City's games until he was sent for physiotherapy for a leg injury at the end of November - he should be back midway through January. Before he left, he managed an impressive 14 goals in 23 appearances. But that's not enough for him to feel safe in for 4th-placed City - he's worried by rumours that the club is signing a replacement for him... it seems that man could be Vinicius Junior.
    Spoiler!


    AJ - Accrington Stanley, Championship
    AJ's return to the Championship hasn't exactly gone as planned - he was unhappy despite featuring in 16 games (scoring a goal) and reluctantly handed in a transfer request. League rivals Brentford were willing to take a punt on the centre half, so he'll be joining them (and generalsmuts) next month, where he'll battle John McLean and Liam Moore for his place in the backline. Accrington are rock bottom of the Championship, whereas Brentford are 9th, so it can be seen as a step up.
    Spoiler!


    AtomicAnt - Southampton, Premier League
    The games continue to be drip-fed to AtomicAnt, who managed just 6 appearances in the first half of the season. He'll be happy to have scored a couple of goals in that time, but it wasn't enough to earn him a run in the side. He hasn't gone so far as to request a move, but he's made it clear that he wants first team football - it looks like Burnley are considering a move for the midfielder. That'd be a bit of a step down if it were to happen, as Southampton are 10th and Burnley 19th.
    Spoiler!


    CMCZ - Newcastle United, Championship
    Dutch defender CMCZ waltzed straight into the Newcastle team upon his arrival, proving to be the preferred centre back partner for Jamaal Lascelles at St. James' Park. That's resulted in 28 games (and a goal) for The Magpies, who are planning a playoff push in the second half of their season, currently sitting 7th. He just about remembers his new teammate SteveHarle from Brackley.
    Spoiler!


    Craig Forrest - Olympiacos, Super League Greece
    Craig Forrest has conceded fewer than a goal per game in the league, but it's in Europe that the defence continues to be porous. They were unlucky to be eliminated from the Champions League on goal difference in a group containing Liverpool and Valencia, and they weren't any more fortunate in the Europa League Round of 32, being drawn against a Manchester United side that edged them 3-1 on aggregate. The Canadian goalkeeper was, of course, involved in a World Cup on home soil over the summer - it wasn't to be a fairytale run as he and his compatriots were eliminated without so much as a goal. Craig Forrest featured in the first two defeats before being dropped for Alessandro Busti in the third game.
    Spoiler!


    Dermotron - Leicester City, Championship
    Unhappy with the club's perceived underachievement (11th in the Championship), Dermotron forced through a transfer to Premier League Brighton, to join Redknapp69. That will go through on New Year's Day provided that an ankle injury doesn't get in the way of his medical, so he's probably played his last game for Leicester after 19 appearances this season, in which he scored 8 goals. Three more caps for Ireland saw him score his second international goal, a last-minute equaliser at home against Greece to keep them alive in their Euro 2028 Qualifying group.
    Spoiler!


    drkshadow1 - Birmingham City, Championship
    drkshadow1 has finally established himself as a starter at Birmingham, playing 28 games so far this season. That's enabled him to already equal last year's goal tally, scoring 6 times. The Blues are struggling in 15th in the league, and rumours that it might cost manager Garry Monk his job has our English midfielder worried.
    Spoiler!


    dweatherston11 - Cardiff City, Championship
    Scottish forward dweatherston11 is still awaiting rescue from 10th-placed Cardiff. He's not seen a minute of first-team action despite 11 goals and 10 assists in 18 appearances for their reserves - someone in Alex Neil's Scotland coaching staff must be going to those non-competitive fixtures, because our man earned his sixth international cap in November, replacing Cardiff teammate Jason Cummings after 82 minutes of a 2-0 friendly win over Costa Rica at Hampden Park.
    Spoiler!


    ebfatz - Burton Albion, League One
    Games have come to an abrupt halt for ebfatz, failing to make a single appearance for The Brewers - and he hasn't been injured! He's gone from wanting a new contract in the summer to wanting first team football and thinking of moving clubs. Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong is the man who's usurped him up top, but 19th-placed Burton might yet need to call on the man who has scored 93 times in 242 games for them.
    Spoiler!


    Erkifino - Chesterfield, National League
    Out of nowhere, Erkifino has found his shooting boots for Chesterfield - his 6 goals (in 28 appearances) this term is more than the last three seasons combined. He's happy at the club, who sit 7th but not exactly banging on the door of the promotion places, and they might struggle without their talismanic centre-mid for the first half of January, given that he faces a couple of weeks out with a gashed leg.
    Spoiler!


    evesham - Liverpool, Premier League
    Algerian defender evesham is still playing most of Liverpool's games, which included captaining The Reds to Club World Cup Final glory (overcoming Gremio 2-0). And there'll be plenty more games to come with them safely through to the Champions League 2nd Group Phase and the EFL Cup Semi Final - Jurgen Klopp may well turn his attention to those cup competitions, given that they hold a 12-point lead atop the Premier League table, with two games in hand.
    Spoiler!


    generalsmuts - Brentford, Championship
    generalsmuts was in and out of the Brentford lineup before a damaged heel in training at the start of December sidelined him for around a month. He did manage 14 appearances up to that point, finding the net once for a side that sit 9th in the Championship, 4 points shy of the playoff places. As mentioned, he's due to be joined by former Brackley and Cardiff teammate AJ in January.
    Spoiler!


    mikecoxon - Maidenhead United, National League
    mikecoxon is seeing more playing time this season, but it's still less than he would've been hoping for when moving to Maidenhead. He's featured 7 times for the National League new boys, and the 2 goals he's scored in that time might keep him in manager Billy Sharp's thoughts. They're not struggling with the step up, sitting quite comfortably in 13th.
    Spoiler!


    Redknapp69 - Brighton and Hove Albion, Premier League
    Welshman Redknapp69's Spanish holiday is over after a couple of seasons in which he was twice named Celta supporters' player of the season. The move to the Premier League has hit his creative output somewhat, though - just the solitary goal and 3 assists in 16 appearances, though it must be said he's played pretty well for The Seagulls. The international picture is rosier still - 5 more caps take his total to 13, also scoring a couple of goals to triple his tally. Brighton are 13th in the league, but there's plenty of bad teams, meaning they're not in any real danger of going down.
    Spoiler!


    riise - Sunderland, Premier League
    Out of nowhere, Ryan Giggs persuaded riise to play for the country of his mother's birth, playing 4 games for Wales (and registering 4 assists) - three-quarters of those caps came alongside Redknapp69. That came during his joint-best goalscoring season, netting 4 in 16 for a Sunderland side that are sitting pretty in 9th.
    Spoiler!


    samsami - Cardiff City, Championship
    samsami remains happy in south Wales, with the Dutchman having played 19 times for The Bluebirds in the first half of the season. A goal, 3 assists and a 7.16 average rating represent a slight decline in production, so he'll be looking to kick on in the remainder of the campaign, potentially helping Cardiff climb from their position of 10th in the process.
    Spoiler!


    Spectral - Cagliari, Serie B
    Life in Serie B hasn't started excellently for Spectral, who has featured in fewer than half of their league games on his way to 2 goals in 12 appearances. Despite the knock to Cagliari's stature and no obvious increase in his own role, the Turkish winger is happy to stay at the club - he's clearly settled in Italy now. That said, he'll undoubtedly hope to feature more after the turn of the year, hopefully propelling his club up from their current position of 11th (albeit just 9 points from the third automatic promotion spot).
    Spoiler!


    SteveHarle - Newcastle United, Championship
    Maltese winger SteveHarle has played just a couple of Newcastle games fewer than new/old teammate CMCZ, managing 26 appearances which have yielded 4 goals and 7 assists. He's also played 4 more times for his country, scoring once to take him to 3 goals in 16 caps. As mentioned, The Magpies are knocking on the playoff door in the Championship.
    Spoiler!


    trunky - Blackburn Rovers, Premier League
    trunky has returned to Britain with his reputation enhanced after a couple of seasons in Switzerland, and he's already established himself in Premier League new boys Blackburn's starting lineup, partnering Italian Silvio Santini in the backline of a team that have got themselves to 16th. He's featured 19 times for the side that find themselves five points from relegation, so will need to keep battling if they're to survive in the top tier.

    Monday's post was lost in the backup restoration... luckily I email it to myself!



    May 2027

    Quite a busy January transfer window, with a couple of eyebrow-raisers!

    Brackley finished pretty much nowhere in 10th, 24 points from promotion and 20 points from relegation.
    Spoiler!


    adnams - Manchester City, Premier League
    Well and truly a regular now at the Etihad Stadium, adnams made 48 appearances this season, scoring an impressive 31 goals, culminating in a hattrick in City's final game that ensured they finished 2nd. Surprisingly, his performances in the past 12 months didn't result in any further international appearances.
    Spoiler!


    AJ - Brentford, Championship
    AJ got his move away from Accrington, joining generalsmuts at Brentford. Unable to replace John McLean or Marc Guehi in central defence for any length of time, he only managed 5 starts (11 appearances in total). He did score a goal in that time, and he's not discouraged by his start for The Bees. They finished 8th this season, narrowly missing out on the playoffs - he'll be hoping to kick on next season.
    Spoiler!


    AtomicAnt - Manchester United, Premier League
    Manchester United paid Southampton almost double what they'd paid themselves to secure the services of AtomicAnt. He immediately became a regular in The Red Devils' midfield three, making a remarkable 26 appearances in the second half of the season as they marched to the Europa League Final, where they defeated Espanyol 2-0. AtomicAnt played the full 90 minutes and performed adequately if not unspectacularly. That success hasn't masked the fact that they finished 10th in the Premier League, though.
    Spoiler!


    CMCZ - Newcastle United, Championship
    CMCZ's first season at Newcastle goes down as a success on a personal level - he played in a total of 51 games, scoring 5 goals and assisting twice. It may yet be a success for the club, too - The Magpies finished 5th in the Championship and, after seeing off Tranmere in the playoff semis, have a final against Sheffield Wednesday to look forward to next week...
    Spoiler!


    Craig Forrest - Olympiacos, Super League Greece
    Canadian goalkeeper Craig Forrest continues to go about his business in Greece. This season saw 49 goals conceded in 42 games, though that was adversely affected by Olympaicos' pre-Christmas elimination from European competition. He's currently being overlooked by his national side, with The Canucks preferring Alessandro Busti and youngster Milan Ricci at the moment.
    Spoiler!


    Dermotron - Brighton and Hove Albion, Premier League
    Irish sweeper/striker Dermotron's latest move (his fifth) sees him land at Brighton with Redknapp69 - he'll no doubt be delighted to finally be in the Premier League. He's struggled for goals a little in the top tier, scoring just 4 times in 15 games, but his 3 goals in 4 FA Cup games were crucial in The Seagulls' run to the final. He led the line in the final but it was Steven Bergwijn got the goal in a 1-0 win over Southampton, securing Dermotron his first major trophy.
    Spoiler!


    drkshadow1 - Birmingham City, Championship
    Another one who has established himself this season - drkshadow1 made a career-best 48 appearances, scoring 12 goals and making 13 assists. Unfortunately, it didn't help Birmingham too much, as they finished 14th in the league. That appears to have put manager Garry Monk's job under threat, but drkshadow1 isn't happy at rumours he could get the chop, as he's confident Monk can turn the club around.
    Spoiler!


    dweatherston11 - Cardiff City, Championship
    It's not a mistake in the intro - dweatherston11 did go on loan to National League Torquay United! But it was only for a month. He managed a solitary goal in 6 appearances, in which he captained the side a few times. His return Cardiff of course provided him with no more competitive action, with involvement in 10 goals in 8 appearances not enough to persuade Danny Cowley to throw him in, despite The Bluebirds being sat innocuously in 10th. He remains transfer listed by request.
    Spoiler!


    ebfatz - West Ham United, Championship
    ebfatz ended an eight-year spell at Burton with a move up a division to West Ham. Unable to break into the first team (with Xande Silva blocking his route), he only made 5 substitute appearances. He might benefit from a full preseason at his new club, but games may continue to be hard to come by, with The Hammers earning promotion after finishing 2nd in the league.
    Spoiler!


    Erkifino - Chesterfield, National League
    Out of nowhere, Erkifino somehow almost doubled his career goals - 7 this season takes his total to 16. This year's 7 came in 48 games for a Chesterfield side that appear to be a little stuck in the National League, finishing 11th... a point and a place below everyone's former club Brackley.
    Spoiler!


    evesham - Liverpool, Premier League
    Liverpool won their seemingly customary Premier League title, bringing evesham his fifth league winners' medal. 47 appearances in all competitions, but he'll be disappointed to have been omitted from the matchday squad in the EFL Cup Final, which his teammates won 3-2.
    Spoiler!


    generalsmuts - Brentford, Championship
    While recovering from his heel injury, generalsmuts lost his place in the Brentford team, making only one more appearance on the season. Clearly, the English midfielder wasn't happy with that turn of events, earning himself a move to West Ham (joining ebfatz), due to go through on June 1st. Might not be such a bad move for him, with Brentford finishing 8th and West Ham gaining promotion.
    Spoiler!


    mikecoxon - Maidenhead United, National League
    It didn't get much better for mikecoxon in the second half of the season, ending up with 13 appearances. He did score a couple of goals in those games, but he was largely unable to help from the sidelines as his side slumped to 22nd, seeing them relegated from the National League. He's still available for loan, and wants to move to a bigger club - chance would be a fine thing.
    Spoiler!


    Redknapp69 - Brighton and Hove Albion, Premier League
    26 appearances for Redknapp69's first season at Brighton seems alright, but maybe not when you consider that 16 of them (and all-but-6 of his league appearances) were in the first half of the season. He scored a goal and registered 4 assists, but most disappointingly, he wasn't involved in Brighton's FA Cup Final win, watching fellow Brackley alumni Dermotron collect his medal from the stands. That means European football next season for a Seagulls side that finished 13th, so perhaps more opportunities are abound.
    Spoiler!


    riise - Sunderland, Premier League
    Welsh winger riise is enjoying the best run of games of his career. 36 this season also led to his best goal output, scoring 5. He certainly has the Black Cats' left-midfield role nailed down - with the talent in their squad, they'll be looking to improve on this season's 12th-placed finish. It was Sunderland that were on the receiving end of adnams' last-day heroics.
    Spoiler!


    samsami - Cardiff City, Championship
    35 appearances for samsami in the Welsh capital this season - he continues to be a model professional in the middle of the park, scoring a couple of goals and registering 8 assists. His solid, consistent performances have caught the eye of Blackburn Rovers - he's due to move to the Premier League club (joining trunky) on June 1st, leaving a Cardiff side that finished 10th in the Championship. But perhaps most pertinently, leaving dweatherston11 all on his own.
    Spoiler!


    Spectral - Cagliari, Serie B
    Unaffected, morale-wise, by the step down to Serie B, Spectral unsurprisingly saw a small uptick in appearances - 21 in total, though he'll likely be disappointed to have managed just 4 goals and 2 assists in the second tier. There'll be no immediate return to Serie A, with Cagliari having finished in 6th, 5 points adrift from the final automatic promotion place.
    Spoiler!


    SteveHarle - Newcastle United, Championship
    Back-to-back 50-game seasons for the formerly rarely used SteveHarle - bang on 50 this time as he scored 7 times and provided an exemplary 15 assists on Newcastle's way to 5th in the Championship. As mentioned, he and fellow Brackley alumni CMCZ have a Championship Playoff Final to look forward to. He continues to rack up the appearances for Malta, now on 18 caps.
    Spoiler!


    trunky - Blackburn Rovers, Premier League
    A pretty good first season in Blackburn for trunky, who had perhaps become accustomed to a few more appearances while in Switzerland. Still, 32 appearances is not to be sniffed at, and he even managed a Premier League goal. The Rovers hung on to their top tier status with the skin of their teeth, finishing 17th, just a point ahead of the team below them. trunky is set to welcome samsami to the club, barring any setbacks.
