Football Manager Diary S2 – April & May – Two league wins in two seasons?

Football Manager 2014 LogoLast month we sealed a cup win, with our second win at Wembley in 2 seasons.

Heading into this final month we’re 11 points in front of 2nd and 3rd, with a game in hand over one of them. We need 8 points to seal the league title from our last 6 games

Football Manager Diary S2 – March – Mansfield and more Mansfield

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo we’re into March, and this month we’ll get the 2nd chance in 2 seasons to seal a cup, with the Johnstones Paint trophy Final on the 28th. Depending on results we could even win the title, tho thats unlikely.

We start the month against the 2nd placed team Mansfield, and they are the team we play at the end of the month in the cup final too. Spooky.

Football Manager Diary S2- February – You remember January, where we didnt sign anyone? Well…

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo we’re in a bit of a weird bit of form. Its good then bad and Im not sure really what to do to change it. We probably weirdly could have done with bringing in a player or two in the window to change things

Hmmm… wait. The window closes on the 2nd

We’re top of the league, but I’m typically mental with transfers.

Running Man – Worsley Woods Park Run 9-08-2014

parkrun logoAfter a weeks rest I’m back and running again. To be honest though confidence is knocked.

And thats really annoying me

Football Manager Diary S2 – December – I dont sign anyone this month. Honest.

Football Manager 2014 Logo

We’re into December and its looking like we might be about to put a good run in.

We have gone 10 games without a loss, and only 1 draw in that entire run, so its a good time to try and turn the screw on our title challenge.

But I have been prone to dabbling in the transfer mare to mixed results. David Twatbag Dunn was a total disaster, and left on a free as quick as he signed. Matt Derbyshire was looking awful, but the signing of Andy Johnson seems to have brought something out in him.

Football Manager Diary S2 – November – Taff vs Nick Barmby

Football Manager 2014 LogoIts been a bit more difficult in League 2 than I expected. Yes we’re 3rd and technically joint top but matches are a struggle and a lot tighter.

Last month I tried an adjustment in formation but it made no difference, we still keep having very low amounts of highlights in the matches.

Maybe we need to sign some players.
