Football Manager Diary S1 – January – Loans, loans and more fricking loans.

Football Manager 2014 LogoWe’re still in the FA Cup, and will face Stoke in a big money clash this month. We’re also still in the FA Trophy, and we’re top of the league – tho we do have only a 6 point lead now with a game in hand.

The one worry is the finances. Our wage bill stands at 18k, which is 1k above where it should be.

Running Man – Worsley Woods Park Run 12-07-2014

parkrun logoSo last week I got a personal best, everything was right, I was running on my own and felt good and the weather was that just slightly cold, slightly wet that is ideal for running.

This week Rach was back, and it was absolutely roasting out. Last week she ran in Birmingham and I beat her time there, but its been a while since Ive finished in front of her.

Running Man – Worsley Woods Park Run 05-07-2014

parkrun logoAfter the closeness of getting a personal best this week, could I get it this week?

The run started out of nowhere, rather than a usual countdown so as we started I realised my iPhone had gone to sleep, so I wasn’t able to instantly start it. When I did hit go, it didn’t start – as it couldn’t find the location. So now I’m desperately trying to see it while its attached to my arm to hit continue.

Football Manager Diary – Season 1- Bristol Rovers preseason

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo our first instalment started with a new game, where we ended up as the new Bristol Rovers manager in the Skrill Premier Conference. This was after getting rejected by Oxford in favour of Peter Fucking Monkey Head Reid.

I will have my fucking revenge, in this life or the next.

In the first installment we did a review of the squad. We have a good keeper (with no backup), good defence, no midfield at all, and 3 good strikers. The real priority in pre-season is to bring in some midfielders.

I started a new Football Manager 2014 Diary

Football Manager 2014 LogoSome avid readers of Taffs Blog (hi Scots and Phil) may recall I did a Football Manager diary a few months back where I took West Ham to the title. Unfortunately I then had an epic computer crash and lost almost everything on the PC, including the West Ham save.

With World Cup fever in the air (as I type this I have Belgium-Russia on in the background) Ive decided to get a game of FM going again.

I’m using Steklo v4 skin (available on the steam workshop) and a data update of FM14 Transfers & Data Update Packs by_pr0FM.

I’m running England (down to Skrill Premier), France (down to League 2) Germany (down to 2. Bundesliga), Italy (down to Serie B), Netherlands (Eredivise only), Portugal (Liga ZON SAGRES only), Scotland (down to Championship) and Spain (down to Liga Adelante).

I’m going to start unemployed and see where the wind takes me!
