I got promoted to the Championship. I have 19 million to spend. I still fully expect to get relegated :lol:


£19m in the Championship? Wtf?


FROM THE.

That's the one I meant. I'm the premier leageu now :lol:
I was still impressed with it.
I'm still doomed :P

EDIT: Three games in.
It's reminded me why I hate getting promoted.
I may be pulling a Derby here.

EDIT: I just lost 5-0 to Blackburn at home. It may be time for a new formation.


Or some new players. You're hardly skint.

Spent it.
I had to rebuild my midfield (Half my promotion side decided to retire. I had no funds in the championship and had to buy old) so I'm hoping at the moment it's a gelling issue. Just got to make sure I'm not fired before they gel

I might get back on to managing Torquay today, may as well while I have all this time at home. I was doing quite well with them considering they were meant to drop from league two and I have a budget of NOTHING.

I remember why I fucking hate that game now, you'll be doing amazingly for ages then all of a sudden you'll get destroyed every week by everyone for absolutely no reason no matter what you do. SIGH.

2-1, got battered a bit, but it was Stoke at home so I'm happy with it.
Those are the kind of games we need to get consistent results in.

And in other news, fuck that haters. Very happy that Gallas is coming in. Good experience, winning mentality (possibly to a fault), and even if he doesn't do great, it's only a one year contract with no transfer fee.

Monday night is the eternal dilemma again.

I am a Liverpool fan, but I have not always been. As a wee lad I was a Man City fan, with Man City shirts with my last name on and such. I was forced by my entire family of Liverpool fans to support them, by painting my room Liverpool red and putting wallpaper and stuff up. It's always a tough game to watch. Both teams are kind of equal in the old footing with regards to glory (neither will get any this season) so meh.

A tale of two teams this evening.

Wigan: Played two, lost two, conceded 10 goals.
Chelsea: Played two, won two, scored 12 goals.

Need a win against Citeh on Monday to kick on for the season. We won't do anything daft like win the league but finishing fourth would be a start this season. And taking points off our rivals is the best way to go about it.

Didn't think for a second that Newcastle would get one of the significant score lines of this season.

Fucking get in! 6-0 :D

This result has been made all the sweeter after the way the Villa fans acted when we were relegated at Villa Park!

TOON TOON!
