Season 1 (Brescia)

I decided to start this challenge at Brescia, in order to win the Atalanta vs. Brescia derby match. This season was purely about getting promoted to Serie A, and possible getting lucky and drawing Atalanta in the cup (which we didn't).

 

Transfers

A ton of wonderkid loans to strengthen the squad, and a few higher value players sold at the start of the season, while Tonali was sold at the end of the season.

Tactic

It decided to play a 4-4-2 Diamond, and it turns out that almost 80% of teams in the Serie BKT were playing it as well.

 Team Performance

We finished in second place meaning that we were automatically promoted to Serie A.

Next season we will have the chance to play Atalanta at least twice the first meeting on October 2nd, so hopefully we will win one of them and be able to move on to another club.

We played the first game against Atalanta in October and we did the business, winning our first derby!

Next I left Brescia, and jobs started to come up.

The Schalke manager was sacked after I declared interest, but they went with Marco Rose instead.

But that turned out to be a great thing because soon the Sporting Gijon job became available, and they offered me the job, which I took.

And when I went to look at the fixture list to see when they play Real Oviedo, it was in 9 days!

Great job! 

Don't ever resign again because you need to get points to stay in the top managers list. Stay at the team until a job comes in.

Ok thanks for the advice, I took the Nigeria job as well.

Next rivalry was Sporting Gijon vs. Real Oviedo, and comfortably won the game.

And I was only at the club for two weeks, and only managed two games before I was off to...

In other news; you may well have to change you username as I think that ship has sailed.

Agreed here. @Chelseaplchamps2021 maybe you should consider naming yourself, mancityplchamps2021 😉

I’d like to think the OP supports Chelsea so that would surely rule out your suggestion.

The next rivalry was the Borussen Derby and we dispatched Dortmund relatively easily.

We also won some bonus rivalries, but they aren't in the challenge

The season is now over and two jobs needed came available: St Pauli and Deportivo. I got the job offer for St Pauli and took it.

Hamburger got relegated from the Bundesliga so next season we will have the chance to play them at least twice.

Thanks lads! I've been able to get in some really good bosmans for the second tier, hopefully we get the Hamburger fixture early in the season, and can move on to somewhere else.

St Pauli vs. Hamburger SV

The next rivalry was St. Pauli vs Hamburger SV, which was thankfully scheduled on August 5, the second game of the season. A stoppage time winner from Fabio Maistro secured the derby victory.

Atletico Baleares, who require at least one promotion to get into the same division as Mallorca!

I would hate to have to write your CV with all these jobs on it.

First time I've seen this challenge as the more complex ones make my brain hurt. Looks like fun thing to play.

Yes it is a very fun one to play. The weird thing is that you end up signing the same players a bunch of times, and especially when your only at a club for a matter of weeks, it can feel very weird!
