Looks like you'll have to offload players to get the club in black than red ūüė쬆

Easier said than done I'm afraid, none of the players are of any value as are mainly on non-contracts one of the many disadvantages of being a semi pro club. 

All I can hope is I fall on some gems that can push me up the league table and pray we become a professional club and tying players to contracts.

Few Job interviews during the first half of this campaign so we will see when it's update time what is happening

Proper ouch, you could search for players that contracts expiring in 6 months? I did that and found few hidden gems for my Lens save.

Mid Season Update

24th August 2024

Here we are again Summer time of 2024, Brian Adams - Summer of '69 playing in the background. The waves hitting the shore albeit cold air going across my bald head. 23 games into the season and we sit comfortable in mid table.

7 games to go in the season and after a start of the season arguing with Nordell about wages he finally extended his contract. Faustini is once again popping the ball in the back of the net on a regular basis, but noone expected anything less from the wing wizard.

Game of the season so far was the 8-0 drubbing over Sylvia. The Yorkshire tea worked it's magic this weekend. The team is topping the charts for goals scored but we are conceding far too much and being for too inconsistent.

Gateshead was the main club of note that approached me this season. As much as I'd love to take on that project they preferred Hayden Mullins.

End of Season Review

20 Oct 2024.

Squeaky bum time doesn't quite cut it this year. Finishing Just above the relegation play offs after an abysmal run. 9 points clear but that could have been so different any other time.

image.thumb.png.7f4f7e8148412a736f36125a90851c5d.png

 

No celebrations with the boys this year just an early holiday to spend with families wind down and a pat on the back for the fight they put up.

Once again due to financial restraints (I really need to get in touch with the Yorkshire Tea HR about sponsorship) we weren't able to bring in any players and the same will likely be next season too.

The coming season will see youngsters being used more and possibly a change from a flat back 4 to 3 at the back if we can pull it off. Overload the back line and have 3 strikers to play out too.

I need to reach down to my inner Yorkshire Bastard and create something special next season.

End of the Road

4th November 2024

Personal Statement - Today is an emotional day for me, as I grew fond of my time in Bodens, hopefully I've brought you the love of Yorkshire like you've given me the love of Sweden. Today I say goodbye and take the next step in my journey while I close the first chapter of my career and leave behind me memories that will last forever. I will always keep one eye on the progress being made here.

Today I embark on the next chapter in my career with a fallen giant, I bring with me the passion of Yorkshire and the determination of Sweden. Today I am Charlton AFC.

The Unemployment Line

26th Feb 2025

So today I'm signing on at the Job Centre, Time to claim Universal credit.

image.thumb.png.12e50b375cb13d23b5991169bd687b0e.png

To be fair to the board, I was given a task to turn a team around a quarter of the way through the season and the players instantly didn't want me there. Constant complaints about the training and a January window where I managed to bring in 3 players. 

The board gave me 5 games to get 11 points when I was struggling to buy a win, I managed 6 points in 4 games and the board said bye bye.

image.png.32091152bdcbf04f7472bb8dd6e774eb.png

Where do I go from here? Well I could take some time off. Or I could dust myself off and get back into it and build from the bottom up again.

We shall see where it takes us.

Bristol Rovers Football Club are a professional football club in Bristol, England. They compete in League One, the third tier of the English football league system.

They play home matches at the Memorial Stadium in Horfield, they have been competing there since 1996. They spent 89 years in the heart of North Bristol between 1897 to 1986 at the Eastville Stadium. Following a sale of the land they spent ten years at Twerton Park in Bath. The club's official nickname is "The Pirates", reflecting the maritime history of Bristol. The local nickname of the club is "The Gas", derived from the gasworks next to their former home, Eastville Stadium. This nickname originally began as a derogatory term used by fans of their main rivals, Bristol City, but was affectionately adopted by the club and its supporters. Cardiff City and Swindon Town are considered their second and third biggest rivals.[3] Other rivalries include; Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Forest Green Rovers, Plymouth Argyle, Torquay United and Yeovil Town. These rivalries are considered West Country Derbies and are often heated encounters. The women's team play in the Gloucestershire County Women's League.

The club was founded in 1883 as Black Arabs F.C. and entered the¬†Bristol & District League¬†as Eastville Rovers in 1892. The club moved to the¬†Birmingham & District League¬†in 1897, then changed divisions to the¬†Southern League¬†as Bristol Rovers in 1899. They won the Southern League in 1904‚Äď05 and were admitted to the¬†Football League¬†in 1920. They were placed in the¬†Third Division South¬†the following year and remained there until winning promotion as champions in 1952‚Äď53. They recorded their highest finishing positions in 1956 and 1959, a sixth-place finish in the¬†Second Division, before suffering relegation in 1962. Promoted in second-place in 1973‚Äď74, they spent another seven seasons in the second tier until relegation in 1981. They won the Third Division title in 1989‚Äď90, though this time lasted just three seasons in the second tier and were relegated back into the fourth tier by 2001.

Rovers won the League Two play-off final in¬†2007, but relegations in 2011 and 2014 saw the club drop into the¬†Conference Premier. They finished second in the Conference under the stewardship of¬†Darrell Clarke¬†and immediately regained their Football League status with victory in the¬†2015 play-off Final. They followed up this success by securing promotion out of¬†League Two¬†at the end of the 2015‚Äď16 season. They were relegated from the third tier in 2020‚Äď21 but returned at the first attempt. Rovers have won the¬†Gloucestershire Cup¬†32 times, the¬†Third Division South Cup¬†in 1932, the¬†Watney Cup¬†in 1972, and have been¬†Football League Trophy¬†finalists two times.

Pre Season Gas problems

8th August 2025

Before I get started I need a LARGE cup of Yorkshire. Thankfully the local Asda stocks it, bonus! So where to start?

I walked into this job knowing I was set for a challenge but I wasn't aware the size of the task. I had to move players on not only to generate money but to change the wage deficit, just so I could bring in my own players to fit into the tactic and the style I want to play.

image.thumb.png.8339690a00cdf9cfdf5e1d1a8d43dff4.png

image.thumb.png.84d4f5a69758a82aa483d4062d0263e3.png 

I have high hopes for Alvaro and Nadin coming in to develop. Two quality captures for League One football and a sign of where we want to go.

There's always that one player that wants to disagree with everything we do as managers. But those players are quickly out the door usually. This one just can't take a hint but sooner he's out sooner I can bring someone in.

image.thumb.png.d17407f08516b40f397064df08ad2458.png

Definitely a Joey Barton player, argumentative little swine! He's training with the kids for now.

Pre season it's self has been up and down with results but I put that down to not having my own players in.

image.thumb.png.aadc30df59bf5102c68d2030668e7dbd.png

Hopefully we can get off to a strong start and put the Charlton story far behind me. Anything but mid table would be a disaster.

All change in here! One minute we're in Sweden, then London and then unemployment (UC¬†ūü§£) was short lived by taking over at Bristol Rovers!¬†ūüėÄ

Hopefully you can push for a playoff position.¬†ūüĎä

Announcement

After getting to Bristol I just lost my mojo for the game with bugs constantly getting the better of me. Then christmas and new year hit and I took a step back. I think this is the end of the line for this story, I've ran out of Yorkshire Tea and with the cost of living crisis I can't afford to shop at sainsburys anymore so from VyKing and his Adventures this story won't be carrying on.

I will have a new story soon so keep your eyes open
