Football Manager – Taking The Dolly Blues up the Leagues and into Europe – Season 14

After 13 seasons at Lancaster City I am taking them into Europe for the first time as we finished 6th in the Premiership last season. We over achieved last year but were very inconsistent as we were either good or really bad, we were 10th for goals scored and conceded so average but we need… Continue reading Football Manager – Taking The Dolly Blues up the Leagues and into Europe – Season 14

Football Manager – Taking The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 13

Last season was Lancasters first in the Premiership and although we only had 7 wins, only got 33 points and only scored 40 goals we survived relegation on the last day of the season, and we also got to the FA Cup final but lost so there were positives and negatives. Our form for most… Continue reading Football Manager – Taking The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 13

A Week in a New World

It’s been a week now since Amazon released New World and it’s been a mixed week for them with issues on day one still affecting players a week later. The release of the game was riddled with issues surrounding their servers or more particularly a lack of servers and small server capacity left players sitting… Continue reading A Week in a New World

I started managing Lancaster City when they first came into the Conference North and now 11 seasons later our 12th season will be in the Premiership after we gained an unlikely play-off win last year.

Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 10

After taking 7 seasons to get Lancaster City from the Conference North to the Football League, we’ve now had 3 consecutive promotions and found ourselves in the Championships.

Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 9

Now into season 9 with Lancaster City we have made it to League One after securing back to back promotions. I thought it would have taken longer to get out of League Two but the step up wasn’t that big and most of our team had League Two ability. We also had a good striker… Continue reading Football Manager – Trying to Take The Dolly Blues up the Leagues – Season 9
