David Batty Player Manager

After the madness that was the 2002 World Cup, I’m not really sure I’ll ever recover. Be that as it may though, we’ve got a season to get on with so let’s do just that.

Everton are the reigning champions but Man Utd aren’t happy about it and want their title back. So it becomes a sign-off

gottskalksson to evertonYes it’s the famous Icelandic DM/FC who is always amazing as a re-gen. Lucky Everton.

ricardinho to evertonEverton bring in a Brazilian international to run the midfield. How bloody good was Celtic’s team!? Anyway, Everton aren’t done and want the honourable JC

Barcelona clearly getting nervous

abel xavier to RMThe season starts with the Charity Shield as always and it’s first blood Everton.

CS 02Yes, all that talent and Christian Dailly is captain.

Some movements on the continent

At nearby Darlington, goals are short so I’ve gone mental and signed plenty of players.

LC QF 02The league form is not quite as good, but I’m aiming for 12th-15th, so maybe things will be ok.

prem top nov 02Gerry Francis battling Brian Little at the top of the table, these are great days to be a manager. Man Utd and Everton’s big spending has them in the mix but a little bit back in the field.

prem bottom nov 02Wimbledon have sacked Fashanu, which is disgusting. After all he’s done for them, and Galdiators, it’s a disgrace. I’ve also ruined Man City with that FA Cup semi final defeat, hopefully they remain broken.

So as we enter the bleak winter months, Darlington will need to improve on their paltry 9 league goals. Hasselbaink has been terrible incidentally. Join us next time to see if Gerry Francis really can win a league title, becoming the first mullet to win the Premier League.
