To the wire

Good day to you. I’ve got my feet back under the table at Darlington and have a bit of a job on my hands to try and get promotion at the first attempt. Elsewhere, England look to seal qualification to Euro 2024 and Milan look to defend every title without me. Let’s get on with it.

Firstly, I managed to keep England’s 100% record with a final win in the qualfiying campaign. Beardsley didn’t score so I don’t care

The group for the Euro’s isn’t that bad, but then it’s hard to know who is good anymore 27 seasons down the line

We’ll have full coverage of that in the next update.

Back in the here and now and it’s been a great run of form for Darlington. I’ve had to sell to buy but slowly I’ve formed a team that is just a point off automatic promotion.

I’ll take the playoffs if needs be but we’re in there with about 6 others scrapping for that 2nd spot. Phil Mulryne’s Notts Forest have ran away with it, he is a former Darlington gaffer of course.

I’ve rolled out the old 3-1-3-3 which is very attacking but I felt it was a risk worth taking. Zidane’s re-gen has joined after falling out of favour at Newcastle


So we’re well set for the remaining weeks of the season. This guy had scored 27 in 16, which I thought was worth taking a punt on. He also has a great name

He’s been fairly rubbish so far though, but we’ll see. Our League Cup campaign came to abrupt end at Old Trafford

Mulryne is cruely denied a final place though after a penalties loss, so it’ll be Everton vs Man Utd in the first final of the season.

Everton actually ended our FA Cup campaign in round 4, but they have since been knocked out. Mulryne’s going for it again though!

Meanwhile in Europe, Milan are struggling domestically since I left but they are doing well in trying to retain their Champions League title

Arsenal haven’t been the same without Haslam, but that’s life.

But domestically, what on earth has Savino done to them?

Disgusting. Anyway, it’s Leeds who top the Premier League, closely followed by Colcombe’s Chelsea. Beardsley has Man City well placed in 4th, though he still isn’t picking himself. He’s 63 now and City are also on the verge of making the UEFA Cup final, bidding to retain the trophy they won. Arsenal are 5th trying to defend their Premier League title.

It’s looking very dicey indeed for Middlesbrough, they are looknig a bit cut adrift along with Burnley. It can all change though as the pressure grows!

So then, another update banked and we’re now on the way to Euro 2024. Can I go there with a spring in my step with promotion in my back pocket? We’ll find out next time. Here’s 63 year old Peter Beardsley to see us out

Beardsley 63

Look at his 9 assists in the last 2 season internationally! He doesn’t have 19 creativity for nothing. See you next time!
