Career Tree in Ireland - S25, first full season at Bohemians

Recommended Posts

Tough CL group who was the 3rd seed in that group, looks like Ireland can climb a couple more places then a big gap, to the next place.

Thanks as always, @Paul186! Not played much this week because... well, life and work etc too, but you'll see, it wasn't a great season!!

 

Season Twenty Four

Despite feeling good about my UCD squad, we got smashed by Chelsea 4-1 in the first leg, and despite making it look respectable in the end, we were never really close :(

So i left for pastures new, hoping to take another Irish team up...

As you can see though, they were bottom at the time, outside the transfer window, and without much financial wiggle room (although i did end up selling Tootle for a mill so i can't complain really).

Also they'd qualified for Europe last year, hence the lofty goal! I signed about 20 players in the summer and won my first game in Europe 4-1 in Bosnia, before conceding two late goals in the first leg of the next round and unluckily losing a tough second leg...

I thought we were going quite well...

...but not long after...

...because we just fell apart :(

Cork and Harps were down there with me, so losing that penultimate game was brutal, before going 0-3 down in the Last Chance Saloon. Somehow we fought back, but not quite far enough, and relegation was confirmed (with two games to spare!!)

So i was sacked!

So i needed another job. I declared my interest in Bohemians and Dundalk, so both sacked their managers. I went for Bohs, richer with better facilities, and my FOURTH Dublin club of the save. Also the best team i hadn't touched yet, apparently (see table above).

I didn't anticipate that they'd still be going in Europe, so i was thrown straight in the deep end and... we drowned:

Bit unlucky though, played well in both and scored a late equaliser vs Sociedad before my keeper watched a long-range shot float past him in the dying seconds :(

You've seen how 2/5 of Ireland's representatives got on in Europe this season, what about the useless one? Same as Cab, one round passed and then out:

But Ireland's two kings were still showing their quality:

So overall, the emerald isle holding steady in 10th:

Here's the overall season overview:

No Player of the Season award this year!!

Hoping i can get back on track next year!

Thanks as always @Paul186 - I'm still here, but a bit slowed by summer and work...

 

Season Twenty Five

We made some decent signings, with a reasonable budget and my great reputation. Not quite enough to topple Shels, who seem to have had a resurgence in the last couple of years, but we were able to pip UCD to 2nd - they had a rough season, sacking a manager halfway through...

Added in a cup, too:

Sadly, i think Shels and UCD both went out asap when the Champs League restarted, so we didn't make much progress with the rankings:

As for the new european season, UCD fell apart in CL qualifiers, and then couldn't get anywhere in the Europa League either:

No such problems for my new team, despite French and German opponents:

Shelbourne showed their strength against difficult opposition:

And, i think for the first time, we had FOUR teams playing until December at least, as Dundalk reached the Euro Cup II Group Stage:

Even sexy wexy almost got there, too!

So near but yet, so far...

 

Player of the Season

A quick squad overview first:

Strikers Verdi and Gomez-Mancini were great pick-ups - getting both Verdi and Maniero from Juventus was a successful transfer window, I'd say! Former PM David Cameron did well in general (in the game)... Rybalka has already been sold, €14m for your reserve winger, why not...

My three wingers taking the top three spots, very nice :)

But yes, Hoffmann was the stand-out - Luxembourg's greatest ever player?
