The 2008/09 season has seen me in the market for a new job – I walked out of Real Madrid after winning La Liga and the Champions League, but where am I heading? Let’s find out…
Remarkably, Sevilla’s manager Sebastian Chano retired in the summer, leaving La Liga’s top 2 managerless. With £50m in the bank and a potential Champions League campaign to come, I’m not out of work for long as Sevilla are happy to have me. Let’s see that squad!
The reputation of the club isn’t great so I’m struggling to spend that £50m, but that’s ok. We’ll bide our time. First things first – let’s qualify for the Champions League!
The best addition there is Pinha, who is Luis Figo’s re-gen. I’ve got my eye on the Batistuta re-gen when the window re-opens in January. These boys have been outstanding though, take a look at these ratings:
Barcelona and Real Madrid are struggling. Van Gaal is still at Barca but I don’t know how, 6th last season and now this. We, however, are absolutely flying
The Champions League group has been a massive struggle – for everybody. all of my new signings are ineligible and I shipped out some of the squad members, which has actually left us a little bit short. It’s in hand though, with 2 home games to finish
Somebody who is immediately under pressure is Nick Barmby, who apparently runs out of favour for bringing Liverpool back to the Premier League.
There’s bad news for game 1 legend Colin Todd too
Darlington are still the force in England, and will be for years to come thanks to the team I built for them. However Gerry sells a striker to a big rival
It’s Leeds who top the table, Brian Little working his magic again.
Oh dear. David Unsworth has his work cut out. Steve Bruce’s Chelsea are in bother, whilst remarkably Dave Jones is still Southampton manager.
So the season is nicely poised, both in Spain and England. It’ll be interesting to see if Van Gaal and Milne keep their respective jobs, who knows, maybe LVG will make the move to Man Utd ahead of schedule? Join us again to find out, thanks for reading
