Career Foxy Goes Back to His Germanic Roots - Season 4

Recommended Posts

Wow! Great job getting the Ajax job. Did you apply for it or did they offer it to you?

Dimata looks like he'll do the job nicely, a good season under his belt and he'll be ready to smash that record!

Well done mate. Shame Badji didn't do better for you, class act but on the young side for a massive score,

Was looking forward to Burkhardt - I used him in my Borussia Babes career, was a nice player, so was looking forward to seeing how he did for the Fox - but obviously taking the Ajax job was the sensible decision.

Dimata shaping up nicely - never seen him before, but looking forward to seeing what he can do for you in a full season. Pretty sure he'll beat the record for you. Anyway, good luck mate, hope he smashes it!

Lovely career, as always, Mr Fox

Thanks Rob.

Enjoyed the journey of that season Fucher! I can see why it would have been tough to leave after getting £75m for Badgi but that’s a great move, Ajax always fun to manage, good start there, I had Dimata on a save last year and he’s great, good luck next season 👍

The money I spent and the squad I was building meant it was hard to leave Brugge but the challenge dictates that it would have been crazy for me to turn down Ajax.

Good work on getting the Ajax job, the correct move in my opinion, as who knows when another one would come up. Dimata looks like a real gem, sure he will smash the record next year!

Dimata looks great and an absolute bargain at £3.6m so hopefully he will do the business for me.

I applied for the job and then as soon as they offered it to me I started getting doubts because I was enjoying it at Brugge. In the end though I had to sign for Ajax for the sake of the challenge.

I definitely think Badji would have just got better and better but the money was too good to turn down especially as I was pretty sure S3 would be my last in Belgium. I would have liked to have given Burkardt the full season but it just wasn’t to be unfortunately.

Yep I know the feeling from the Ticket To Ride challenge and my continental Conquerors challenge, you build a good team, pick the improvements where needed and then BAM! a job that's almost too good to pass up comes around and you're stuck in a weird should I go/should I stay dilemma.

I’m quite enjoying the change of mindset because normally I would be trying to build a good squad to last a few seasons but this is much more short term and it’s quite refreshing.

Season 4 - Ajax with Nany Dimata

The last half of season 3 was just a practice for Dimata and he proved he has what it takes to beat the record of 55gls in a season in Holland and so the serious business starts of actually doing just that.

I continued to build the squad in the summer and then January with a focus on trying to get some good wide players in.

Unuvar didn’t go to Spurs and I have no idea why it says he did.

We had a tough Champions League group with Real Madrid, Man Utd and Porto but I was determined to get through if I could as the Champions League is where I will build my reputation and get the big German clubs wanting my services.

In the end it was a double shock as Porto won the group and we came second meaning Real and Man Utd went out early and that was despite me only winning one game which was the home tie with Porto.

Domestically we never lost a game all season as we won the cup and league double with just three league draws being our only dropped points.

In some ways I think I focused a bit too much on results as we weren’t that prolific in front of goal and although we were tight at the back I would have happily conceded more if it had meant more goals for us especially for Dimata.

That said at the winter break he was going at just over a goal a game and needed 27 more goals to break the record. I was trying to play him more in domestic games and then rest him in Europe as I felt the goals would be easier to come by in Holland. It’s hard to know if that has cost him goals or means he has scored less than he would have but he isn’t exactly pulling up any (Mr)trees in the two European games he played.

The European adventure continued as we played Liverpool and Dimata did play in one leg and did score as well.

It looked like the run was coming to an end though as we went three down at Anfield but a late fight back and an injury time goal saw us win on away goals.

This set up a game with Bayern in the Quarter Finals and the perfect chance to make the Bavarians think they should employ me.

After the first leg they were no doubt thinking I might be the man they need.

But after the second leg they had probably forgotten my name.

I was offered alternative employment during the season with Bayer Leverkusen coming in for me in December which was a no go because I had yet to set the record and the rules say I can’t come back to Holland later and set it again.

Spain wanted me as well but that was a firm no as well because it serves no purpose for the challenge.

This does show that decent clubs in Germany are looking at me though and my reputation is enough for major European nations to want to employ me as well. In fact my profile says I am world class now so I just need to set the record and then wait for the German Giants to come begging for me to manage them.

I can’t control what jobs become available but I can control what Dimata does and he did ok, nothing spectacular just ok.

The record was 55gls but it now stands at 56 as Dimata got the job done just. That goal against Liverpool was the only goal in Europe he got and resting him didn’t in 4 of the games probably didn’t yield many more in domestic games either.

That all said though the record is set and Dimata is looking good and isn’t getting any better.

My plan now for season 4 is to improve Ajax and have another tilt at the record with Dimata unless someone offers stupid money for him. Then if a really big job in Germany comes up such as Bayern or Dortmund I will apply and hopefully get that but if not I will finish the season and then reevaluate the situation then.

I think there is more to come from Dimata and this team so my hope is that I can do a second full season in Amsterdam before moving on but circumstances will dictate that as I can’t afford not to take a big job if it comes up.

Great work fox, another record-breaking season! Good to see Villa and Dilrosun feature, all you need now is the Bayern job. Is Haaland still at Dortmund?

He sure is and it is quite a tantalising prospect.

Whew, just scraped over the line there! But that's great - I'm sure you will improve on it next season, but having it ticked off in case one of the big German clubs come knocking is priceless. Can't wait to see how next season turns out.

Lovely write up again. Good to see that he just scraped the record too. That must have been ‘fun’ to track.

It was good to get the record done but I was worrying that I would run out if games at the end.

I’m sure Dimata can do better with some better players around him so hopefully I can improve next season and then a good German job will come up then. At least I can now leave Holland at the drop of a hat if a job comes up though.

Well done fella. I like the look of Dimata and he has done exceptionally well for you.

Plenty of quality wing support now to hopefully help him to improve his tally once again. 👍
