Managed to win the Skrill South with Hampton & Richmond, the clubs building a new stadium now & no loans are being used to fund it so happy days were thats concerned. My main striker is a beast, 50 games 88 goals and what made it better was  i got him on a free transfer from Queens Park in Scotland along with 4 other players.

 

Signed a new 1 year deal, see if i can get promoted into the Football League now.

 

This is how the Premier League finished in 2127/28 season.

Just played a crafty move.

 

Im top of the Skrill Premier and miles ahead of everyone bar Colwyn Bay, i just played them and in the screen before the game where it comes up with top scorers i noticed their one was an Icelandic bloke called Arnarsson, he had 22 goals, the nearest one to him in that team had 5 so really without him they should in theory start failing and dropping down the table. So after beating them 4-1 (their goal coming from Anarsson) i decided to look at him and noticed he had a release clause.

 

I activated it and *in godfather voice* made him and offer he couldn't refuse. Deal went through the next day and now i have my biggest threats best player.

 

I just have to hope they don't go out and buy a replacement, if they do they have to be quick, the window shuts tomorrow.

3 goals in 3 games then damaged his elbow.

 

Wasn't a popular signing by fans or the board. Since signing him i've pulled out a 10pt lead with a game in hand though so it worked.

Into the third season of my Queen's Park game. Up to the Championship, still Amateur, really struggling now as my best players are picked off at the opening of each transfer window for free. Any promising youth players I get at the end of a season are gone by the start of the next, etc.

 

I am using a really hard, tough-tackling tactic, four defenders, three central midfielders, two wingers and a target man. My teams disciplinary record is horrendous. I have players who miss most of the season through suspension. It's effective though. It does rely on having a pair of capable, speedy wingers though.

 

Not going to do anything other than survive (hopefully) in the Championship until the club turns at least Semi-Pro.

Mm. They're hardcoded to stay that way and I don't think you can edit files to change that unfortunately.

 

It's a Drai-style club though, no doubt.

Im currently chasing something i don't think i've ever done before and get 3 promotions on the trot. Currently in January 2130 and im top of League 2 so hopefully i can carry on and do it. Despite the good form i've had with Hampton & Richmond since taking over im still leaning towards retiring soon.

3 promotions in 3 years is complete.

I honestly can't see it being 4 in 4 though as the majority of my best players are leaving on free transfers at the end of the season, some don't want to stay and others are asking for stupid money. Stadiums being expanded already which means im having to share The Den with scumbag Millwall while its being complete. When i started out i was getting average attendances of 440 people, now its close to 4000, fucking glory hunters.

Bad start to League 1 saw me win 2 games in my first 10 games, the other 8 were losses, couldn't even muster up a draw or two. With that and the fact i knew my best player was leaving next summer i left the club.

 

Spent 2 months trying to get another job in England, getting turned down by some of the shittest clubs around like Havant & Waterlooville, Dover, Eastbourne and Truro made me realise this is it.

 

It was like this knowing 146 year old Nick Drai was now at the end.

I'll put my Landmarks (Winner and Runner up) shit in a spoiler because its that long.

 

 

Spoiler

 

Good career overall, the best one i've had for complete contrast of clubs and things i've won. Its kinda good that as you get older bigger teams aren't interested in you anymore but what annoyed me was i was still doing good jobs everywhere or mostly everywhere but it counted for nothing, going from Sporting Lisbon to Air India was annoying.

 

Make another manager now and carry on i suppose.
