Career Real Salt Lake- Claret and Cobalt crack the USA!


Recommended Posts

Good Evening All,


Choosing the team

I started this career unemployed in the USA. It is both an attractive league but a very competitive one.The first club who offered me the position of manager was Real Salt Lake who last won the MLS CUP in 2009 but have since fallen on tougher times.


Stadium and facilities

Real Salt Lake have a reasonably sized Stadium which holds over 20,000 fans - there is demand for these seats. The Youth and First team training facilities are state of the art. The club the essentials to bring it back to the very top of american football.


Holiday and Assistant Manager

As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below:


Staff,Finance and Training

The Staff definitely required some improving when I first arrived at the club, The club now had State of the Art Coaches, a few good scouts and Pyshios. The finances have been up and down due to needing to improve the squad. The training is delegated to the assistant manager to do.



I used my Tiki Taka tactic for this career with Real Salt Lake. I worked very hard on the defence due to taking over the club when they were only losing or drawing matches. We struggled a lot offensively and ended up quite inconsistent because of this.



Fourth Season in and my transfers were more specific and focused due to my buying and selling previously. This transfer market, I focused on Attacking players, in contrast to my previous buys. A number of older players and those not good enough to win the MLS Cup left the club.


The result

After a number of tough, inconsistent seasons, Real Salt Lake cracked USA football again! We won the double in 2021 with both the US CUP & the MLS CUP. The additions of good quality strikers & better attacking players really propelled us forward. It has been a nice career managing Real Salt Lake and winning big in the USA, again shows my philosophy and system are successful!

Out of interest why do you have a “holiday stance” as in when do you actually go on holiday in game?

When do you go on holiday though? Do you skip between matches during the season? 

You need to read his manifesto he linked above as he explains it all perfectly :P



I always think with these two things that firstly, whoever you are with, you do not want to be a selling team. As soon as i start with a club, i am putting a stamp down that we are holding onto our best players and building to be the best rather than settling for second best. Also, i do not like anyone else buying players for my philosophy but me, its a waste of the wage budget and normally i find not the players i need most.
