IALWTTT - Journeyman

So its been a long time since I did a career thread on these forums and stuck to it so I think now is the time to go again! 

I'm doing the Its a long way to the top challenge but as a journeyman save, I know I won't be able to join the leaderboard but I have loaded other nations ( England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain) to allow me to have a long 30 year career as a journeyman bouncing around from nation to nation.  So let's get into the save.

Harrogate Town

After a while of searching for a job, League 2 Harrogate approached me and I accepted with the thought in my mind that I'm avoiding 2 lower divisions to start with and this will allow me to hopefully progress through the league's and onto bigger jobs a lot quicker.

I came into the club with them on a very bad run of games, 1 point out of the last 4 and sat in 15th. I was hired on the basis that I keep the club in the division but I had other ideas, could I sneak up a division through the play offs?

Season Review

Our first two fixtures were very difficult ones, against two teams a division above us, Peterborough in the cup and Sheff Wed in the Papa John's, could we hold our own against opposition that are a league above us?

We couldn't win either game but we took heart from the fact we weren't battered in either game, in fact we were winning 2-0 against Sheff Wed before our late collapse but these fixtures gave us confidence for the rest of the season

As you can see I managed to improve our form drastically, unfortunately I forgot to screen shot the fixtures after Jan but I can show you the league table with 8 games to go.

8 games remaining and we were comfortably sat in the play off spots with an outside chance of chasing down automatic promotion but thinks we're about to go horribly wrong

I was SACKED, although I was high flying and getting the best out of the players, my eyes had been turned, I'd applied for a few jobs in League One and the Championship, really testing my look to see if I could fly up the leagues but I had no success with this and Harrogate Town decided they had enough.

So I will have to get back onto the football ladder but where do I go next? Stay tuned to find out!

Hartlepool United

So part two of my Journeyman save sees me arrive at a team only 40 mins down the road from me, Hartlepool United. 

 

Screenshot_20221220-140454.thumb.jpg.abe68f2f37c232065b7ad2b1bb1cc681.jpg

I arrive with the club sat 2 points above the drop some and with 9 games to keep them in the VNL, will I be able to do it?

Screenshot_20221220-140432.thumb.jpg.05840336a5659535b50dd06028a20165.jpg

Their recent form has been very poor and they have clearly slid down the table rapidly, my plan is to come in, keep tactics simple and get some confidence into the side.Screenshot_20221220-141016.thumb.jpg.c8487aa608853cf03e4ad469d4251a76.jpg

Our first game ends in a win, albeit with a late scare and trying to hold on for the last 5 mins. I was confident I can keep this side up and then go onto plan for next season but disaster struck and we went on a very bad losing run, meaning we had to win our second last game of the season to have any chance of surviving and hope other results went out way 

Screenshot_20221220-144939.thumb.jpg.16d696bfe3e1f6ba7c51f6f8c374fb1e.jpg

The players were not happy with me and came out on record saying they wanted me sacked, things were about to become a lot harder going into the final 2 games, with us desperately needing two wins but with the players seeming to have lost interest into fighting under my management.Screenshot_20221220-153423.thumb.jpg.b28c72cd7ee9d79a4ccf08eafc36fada.jpg

We go on to have one of the most entertaining games I have saw in a long time and manage to go into the final game needing a win and a hefty goal difference swing.

Screenshot_20221220-153859.thumb.jpg.5fd30d375e125ab06bbbefae04a58fb8.jpg

We go onto lose the last game, get relegated and I'm forced by the board to resign or be sacked. So far this save is a disaster but they do say third time lucky?
