The date is now 11/9/2018. George Dyke has gained experience in being a football manager bt nothing yet has made him stand out so far.
Dyke spent 2 years at San Marino where he began repairing the club that was having a torrid time in Serie C1/A. He then left the club to adventure somewhere else and fell off of the radar for a year until he joined Cambridge C. Interestingly it turns out that San Marino got relegated the season after Dyke left.
Dyke spent two days at Cambridge C before resigning as he felt that the club was beyond repair.
Dyke is now at Oxford City in his second season there and, having gained promotion via the playoffs (after finishing 2nd), the pressure is on to stay in the Blue Bet Square Premier. They are currently placed 21st with 7 points from 9 games. After his terrific performance in the Blue Bet Square South he was awarded manager of the season.
Oxford City are currently placed 21st with 7 points (P9 W2 D1 L6). They are currently in the "top spot" in the relegation zone. Sources from Oxford City have said that, even though they are near the bottom, G Dyke is still "as cool as a cucumber". He knows that they have quality in the squad and the results will come.
G Dyke has brought in quite a few players recently and this may have unbalanced the mentality of the squad.
September was not a very successful month for G Dyke's men as they only picked up 7 points out of 18 and they are still hovering around the relegation zone. The high of the month was the convincing 6-0 win over the league leaders Torquay but the month ended in disappointment due to a close 0-1 loss at home to Forest Green. They have escaped the dreaded relegation zone for the time being but only on goal difference.
G Dyke's men have had a good month in both cup and league competitions. They gave picked up 14 points out of a potential 21 and they have shot up to 13th by the end of the month. They also progressed into the FA Cup 1st Round when they beat Bath 2-0 in the qualification 3rd Round. They have been drawn against Hereford in the next round.
G Dyke has also dipped into the transfer market and picked up 2 new players. As he has recently come under criticism for his lack of depth in the centre of midfield he has picked up the promising young Burkina Faso midfielder Aziz Koulibaly, formerly of Chelsea. However the biggest coup was that of the free transfer of Ross Atkins, an experienced goalkeeper who may act as competition for the current Oxford number 1 Alan Davey. Problems have arisen recently with the lack of options between the sticks as Davey travels with the Wales under 21's and the unsettled backup Jack Mann has been loaned out to Sutton Utd.
BBC sources have received information that Barnsley, currently in League 2, have offered G Dyke the vacant managerial role. G Dyke has refused to answer questions at the moment but the Paddy Power and Bet Fred have suspended betting on the move.
G Dyke has left Oxford City for the Npower League 2, having joined Barnsley. He has apparently signed a contract worth £1,300 a week until 2020. The board have set a tough target of promotion but this could be tough as Barnsley have been having a torrid time this season.
In G Dyke's first game in charge at Barnsley he recorded a 2-0 away win at Cheltenham. However things were not as comfortable as the scoreline suggests as the two goals came in the 91st and 92nd minutes but, as Dyke said in the post-match interview, "a win is a win". This result has dragged them up to 11th in the table, 5 points shy of the playoff places.
