Career Unemployed to Glory

Posted by

Today I find myself at Job Centre Plus. I have no managerial experience but I have a dream, a dream to win 4 champions leagues in Wales, Poland, Italy and France. Will I succeed no. Will I have fun..... maybe. Anyway this is my journey to glory.

Season Review 16/17

Somehow. Somehow we made it to the semi finals we dispatched many a good team but now we find ourselves stepping out. Ready. Ready to defeat KGHM Zaglebie. 15 minutes gone we find and opening we take our chance. 28 minutes. We win the ball we charge forwards. They win the ball. They counter. They score. An away draw would be fine I thought don't let this slip. It slipped. They scored with 10 minutes to go. Can they hold on. Yes.IMG_2082.thumb.PNG.cfea5dcbebbeb5b49524cffb96acfd06.PNG

Second leg we need a win. Fight I think, fight. 3 minutes gone perfect start we score. Just after halftime, we score again. Could this be our night? Zaglebie storm down the right side and cross. 64 minutes. Nespor. Goal. The referee blows his whistle.Extra-Time! Niezgoda sprints down through the middle of the pitch. A defender hacks him down. Free kick 7 minutes to go. Mazek. He runs up to it. He hits it. It sails over the wall. GOALAZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Calm. Hold on. Keep going. The final whistle blows. Ruch are into the final.IMG_2083.thumb.PNG.74d574fc442ccec1d0f18490237c1952.PNG

Trophys are why we play the game I told to my shivering players huddling together in the dressing room. We step out. Ready to face Wisla Plock. Can we do it? The first half passes. Tense. Physical. 76 minutes Nowak shoots. It hits the post. It bounces back. Komczkowski hits it first time. It smashes into the back of the net. Come on! Keep going I scream. We do. Mazek through ball. Into Niezgoda. He shoots. He scores. Surely it is over. It is. We rush towards the fans as champions and saviours. 

IMG_2072.thumb.PNG.9d7a59d0952da2dc35e5985463d153d4.PNG

The league was a struggle we fought. Late goals. Excitement. Luck. Fate. Whatever it was it led Ruch to the double;).IMG_2074.thumb.PNG.1e342dea99e20cb37b206c3ee1bd5abb.PNGIMG_2075.thumb.PNG.16cb19bbc562933f2240a194c07deeab.PNGIMG_2076.thumb.PNG.7a95239b0c0468f20d67fe20b638788e.PNG

I have grown as a manager and as a person. This is a new Eoghan Tucker.IMG_2078.thumb.PNG.3a4869420aa2c85bc63966abf71e11c7.PNG

We are no longer bankrupt and the board love me. No time to rest on success. Must improve. Continue. Fight. Win. Complete this challenge.IMG_2077.thumb.PNG.cff51724da8cb67753cf2cca23ff7d5d.PNG

Loanees. The core of our team. A problem. Niezgoda carried us. Who will step up?

A clean sweep of awards. I step up for mine. Pride. I deserve it. Hard-Work. Match-fixing. Just kidding.

Auxerre were the only ones with a full squad and also if your surprised by the cup then why aren't you surprised by the league?

Auxerre would've had my vote. Great history and I remember watching them play in Europe. Make them a contender again, mate.

So how did we fare in France?IMG_1035.thumb.JPG.84d80d7a582a7817c3092d0d1bf7da15.JPGIMG_1036.thumb.JPG.872a1da3edfd540b7f68dd9163c62985.JPG

Two early Cup defeats allowed us to concentrate on the league so I wasn't too fussed.IMG_2095.thumb.PNG.87c5b3e754dee5741cb7eed9bef21f4a.PNG

I am actually in shock. Somehow we managed to qualify for Champions league football which we sealed with a 2-0 away win to Marseille on the last day of the season. It was key that we beat Monaco and OM home and away and won at home to PSG and away to Lyon. Great season and I'm hoping to push on.IMG_2096.thumb.PNG.54dcfed662ebd81bc8b300a7bb12771a.PNGIMG_2097.thumb.PNG.9c68d572773ad21db3a3957424ea0e18.PNG

Not all of these signings are mine but Kuyt, Simons and Benezet saved us. In the end poor form hit us when Benezet got injured for the 33rd to 37th games of the season. In those games we lost to PSG and Lyon.IMG_2098.thumb.PNG.2c3b303e1f6f72d5fc8e4cdcdd4c811e.PNG

Another Manager of the year award for me beating the champion Genesio.IMG_2099.thumb.PNG.ee70d65a4176b69ab2147a782b46d077.PNG

Overview

IMG_2128.thumb.PNG.5cd018a606522db423fbf98f7c2c88f9.PNGIMG_2130.thumb.PNG.7bcd9dc78dc4c94d26e68a83a1490ecf.PNG

We snatched the title to break a 23 year drought in an amazing season domestically. Our problem last season was unlucky draws and losses to bottom half teams however this season we found ways of winning ugly aka 1-0, 2-1. A massive help was Dirk Kuyt who has now managed to hit 20+ goals in a season for the second year in a row despite being 37 and 38 in those seasons.IMG_2131.thumb.PNG.063254c19d9813eecdd96adb10c2dd63.PNG

Two of our new signings get player of the year and runner up. Burgui and Bahoui were opposites while Burgui and Kuyt were bagging last minute winners against top teams (and I mean constantly) Bahoui and Zé Gomes consistently scored against weaker opposition. Combining the four would inevitably win us this league.IMG_2133.thumb.PNG.ca951f5f274b5da0c46c970de1c566f7.PNG

Here you can see our end of season form.

IMG_2138.thumb.PNG.3614235521bcb4bd24deac4dc1f7c68e.PNG

Good seasons all round. My player of the year goes to Kuyt who despite having 7 shooting and being 38 he claimed Ligue 1 3rd place scorer. Burgui, Bahoui and Gomes deserve special mentions. Note that Gomes, Horta, Yazici and Lanchas won't be on here as they returned to their clubs the first 3 played almost all our game while Lanchas didn't feature.

Cups

IMG_2126.thumb.PNG.d8019ef83a685416daa6b52bcce36e38.PNG

We won the coupe de la Ligue after an awful showing in penalities by Nantes. To be fair thay should have won edging out Shots on Target and possession. A very nice cup win was our first of hopeful many in France.IMG_2127.thumb.PNG.1e9fa8dd8ef2c7316d793a52ec800fdb.PNG

To be honest we got battered here and defeat was fair but still dissapointing considering how close we came to a domestic treble.

The Big Prize (UCL!)IMG_2104.thumb.PNG.d2ece47155f09638d6e5a34d2fe5261a.PNG

We kicked of with a solid win over Olympiakos.IMG_2105.thumb.PNG.25070ef17efdd6efbdff0a7b01594ec9.PNG

Poor discipline cost the home team as we romped to a 2-0 victory.IMG_2107.thumb.PNG.fc5648ab289646863dd13956d63f360d.PNG

We set ourselves up for the group stage with a thumping win over Galatasary.IMG_2108.thumb.PNG.a170f6eba335ee6f7faa7b82b890b9d9.PNG

Dissapointing loss but we were never in doubt of going through. In the group stage we got lucky and drew against Chelsea, Shakhtar and Hapoel Ber Sheva.IMG_2114.thumb.PNG.da447ee4262294c3506a5ed00ae2420b.PNG

2-0 flattered us but we took the win.IMG_2115.thumb.PNG.a0bb6fa49026a65729ef7beaae72b712.PNG

Qualification was looking likely as two new signings fired us into a 2-0 lead away before they snatched a consolation goal at the end.IMG_2116.thumb.PNG.2056bbfb883704b43bd6510ad75ba3e9.PNG

A good draw showed we could compete with giants..........IMG_2120.thumb.PNG.bb0ed847bba8ecc81f0016e4eb7ea378.PNG

At home at least:laugh:IMG_2119.thumb.PNG.0f013d93c09ac467d36a8b3b8d3df51f.PNG

A win here should have qualified us but results elsewhere meant we needed to beat Shakhtar.IMG_2118.thumb.PNG.e4e2dee9b60ddf958e2eb100ea340889.PNG

We beat them and somehow top the group. Great performance form the lads.IMG_2121.thumb.PNG.9f3f557536364f696ba922e48222f3e7.PNG

Here you see the table.IMG_2123.thumb.PNG.e4153c574089cbbc0b55ddc2317a31ab.PNGAmazing comeback with youth player Delort and Kevin Berigaud seal a famous win.IMG_2124.thumb.PNG.2853045a395267f54cb565cfc770317b.PNG

We self-destruct in a painful home tie with Pato scoring the decisive goal.

Some good signings to bolster the squad especially Scolaro who despite being 16 is amazing.IMG_1109.thumb.JPG.8ff5596a832795bff2052e66f673ab3b.JPG

Look how good he is for a 16 year old!IMG_1108.thumb.JPG.772b727cd51483d1040401e2543db536.JPG

One pending transfer for January.IMG_1107.thumb.JPG.494b16c22194fe64d4227f1ca299b79c.JPG

Mostly youth players going out but it's sad to see Licá go as he really helped us in our first season.

January Signing

So far this season we haven't scored enough goals. Say hello to my answer.

Slightly underwhelming? Possibly. I do think he can do a job for us

Good enough stats in the right areas mate! I'm saying 15-20 goals is a decent return from now until May, I think he's definitely capable
