An Idiot Abroad

Yep, I decided to walk out on Wimbledon and take over at Auxerre in France. With the offer of UEFA Cup football and generally a bigger club, it’s a good opportunity to enhance my reputation. The Wimbledon squad were growing tetchy, good players like Devine and Page are being courted by bigger clubs and they want away, afterall even Chris Casper got snapped up. Wimbledon decide John Toshack is the only man who can replace me and I cannot argue with that

Anyway, please, game, give me something normal

Anyway, things are going atrociously in France. I have tons of strikers but none of them can score, which is useful. We’re leaky in defence too, and my best player is Liverpool legend Bernard Diomede. Par Zetteberg is decent too but he picks up a 3 month injury and I’m beginning to long for Selhurst Park. The Premier League, however, is still insane as Brian Little’s Aston Villa have a commanding lead

The only positive for Auxerre is that two rounds of the UEFA Cup have been negotiated, against Aberdeen and Schalke, though I’ve been drawn against mighty Brian’s Aston Villa so that’s another dream over. I won’t bore you with the details of the French League but it’s a constant struggle and I’ll probably be sacked before long. Here’s the squad:
