Season 3 - Part 2

A remarkable start to season 3 has us in a perfectly positioned 3rd place behind dare I say it...Title rivals Dartford and Chelmsford who in fairness are a few points clear of Westeros as things stand.

As Assar says farewell to the club until the next cycle, Justice now grabs the horns of the dragon and looks to lead them to glory in the final stages of the season.
Vanarama National may be a large possibility here.

So how did he do? Erm, well...

Justice has absolute obliterated the league to put it bluntly. Starting with a routine 1-0 win over Tonbridge and improving that record by equaling 6 wins from 7 in a string of low scoring 1-0 wins.

It was clear for all to see how Assar's style and Justice's differ with Assar plowing through the league in all out attack and Justice keeping out goals at the other end instead looking to showcase firm defensive football.

The most notable thing here though is that Justice took Westeros to become unbeaten in the last 5 months of the season which is quite an incredible feat. One that we didn't expect to see for a long time at a club like this.

So the league was won coming 8 points clear of Dartford in the end who did well to at least keep up with The Direwolves.

Next season Westeros will be in the Vanarama National League. A very special moment in the history of the club, and a year that will certainly be remembered by all should we continue to rise even further through the tiers.

Onto the next one!

Season 4 - Part 1

Off the back of a brilliant season winning our clubs first ever trophy, we would now see the 4th year in by entering a level higher. The Vanarama National. A league in which the South and North culminates together to make a non league, premier league...If you will.

The last step in search of League football but this season it was looking very much like survival was the best form of attack as we were tipped to head straight back down to the depths of the South.

We didn't want that, and neither did Syb.

A fairly average beginning if you ask me although maybe others might think different. But to me average is good in our first season in the league. We want to stay up and push to build a better team capable of competing so survival is the main goal for the season.

It's looking highly likely as well. Whilst we are still close to the relegation zone this team is still very much capable of getting results and it will be nothing short of a disappointment if we go down.

So a big thank you to Syb for doing what I couldnt last time round in putting me in a good position to survive.

It's my second turn now and the job in hand here is survival. Nothing more nothing less, we want something for Hazza and scott to build from next year.

Season 4 - Part 2

You must never pass the wall, for that is the relegation zone...

As Syb passed the save on I knew I was going to have a lot of work to do. My first three games back were Bromely, Maidenhead, and Chelsea.

All thanks to Syb. Westeros were in the FA Cup 3rd round and to all of our delight we drew Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The biggest fixture in our history but not because of the game, because of the finances we would receive from it.

My tenure began with a 2-1 win for us in our home stadium of Kings Landing, but despair was to follow as we fell short of the mark in a 2-1 defeat against Maidenhead.

The it was all the way to rivals Chelsea who we would play at the Bridge in what would seemingly be a very one sided affair.

Because of such a situation I decided to opt against greed, and settle for what we'd gotten. A 5-5-0 was how we lined up, no you're right we'd never done it before but that was what was happening and the players would like it or lump it.

At full time chelsea had won (And yes only) only 4-0 from the 50+ shots they managed to have on goal. Just target practice for them really but for us it was massive.

Our club balance was up to 900K after previously being 180K, and the board accepted my request for a new coaching badge which would cost all of £600!

Onto the rest of the season though, it was pretty abysmal and my time was about as successful as my first run in. We were able to pick up wins here and there, a draw along the way too.

My main goal was to achieve 49 points which would have kept us safe last season, as the battle went to the final day we were able to survive through no fault of our own, we were beaten on the last day. That did not matter an ounce too me.

With the league done and dusted we would keep National football at Westeros with Hazza set to take over and look to build upon the foundations myself and Syb have already constructed.

Season 5 - Part 1

It's been a while since the last update but dont fret, we have not gone anywhere! Still battling it out in the Vanarama National we go into a fresh new season looking put points on the board right from the get go and make a hopeful push for Play Offs at the end of season 5.

Hazza would be making the movements to try and better our relegation survival from last year, and it was down to him now to decide whether the club would fall, Stagnate, or rise.

At the end of December, things look like they went a little better than first expected. No...A lot better.

A pretty remarkable season so far all thanks to Hazza. Playing Some exquisite attacking football for the first months he's managed to put Westeros in a brilliant position as Scott takes on the remainder of the season.

There were some incredible results a long the way, of course 2 replays in both the FA Cup and Trophy. We will advance in the FA Trophy but unfortunately we run out falling short against Billericay in contrast to our incredible run last year where we went out to Chelsea.

Results such as the one vs Barnet equaling a total of 10 goals in a 6-4 victory to The Direwolves will go down in history as the clubs biggest win, and highest scoring game.

As you can see we fly incredibly high at the top 8 points clear and our position couldn't be much better. Our expectations couldn't be more clearer.

with the last months of the season now upon us Scott is out here trying to bring League football to the mighty Westeros.

Bring it home Scott lad.
When u realise Harry got 9 more points by himself than Aaron & Sybe combined :P
I love this story! Keep it up lads, I think its safe to say some manage better than others ;)
Dwayne "The "Casterly" Rock" Johnson! Love it!
Mike: How rude ;)

Burd: Amazing hahaha

Season 5 - Part 2

Sailing into league football like...

It's been a long while, but we're finally back to end season 5 of our Westeros Project and it's been an amazing ride to say the least.

Scott took over from Harry who as I recall left him 8 points at the top at the midway point and a cup game to play against Tranmere. This game came rather early and was seemingly tough. We crashed out but our main thoughts were too not worry. this gave us much less fixture congestion in the coming weeks and would be important for a promotion push.

The first few games were hit an miss, but after around 7 games or so we went on a brilliant winning streak, we had won 10 out of 12 games in of course the last 12 of the season which really was massively important in our promotion bid.

In the end the league looked like this

unbelievable really. In 5 seasons we've had 2 league wins and now we're into League 2. Crazy stuff. The club is in the best financial position it could be as well which is important for this situation. Our balance currently sits at just under 900K.

Lot's of work for Justice to do now. Maybe we'll go professional some day soon? Let's hope so. Onwards and Upwards for The Direwolves!

Season 6 - Part 1

Okay, it is back to myself. My comrades had done well to bring us to professional football status and, more importantly, to the EFL League 2. We were now in the 4th highest division of English football (yay), and would finally be able to compete in the coveted Mickey Mouse Trophy EFL Cup. Without further ado, let's see how we got on.


Craig Lee Became The Club's Most Expensive Ever Signing

Yes, the currency I'm using currently is Euros. Sue me. It is what I use for my Sami Heikkinen save (which you can check out in my story ;) ), and I just wasn't bothered to switch to UK Pound Sterling. Anyway, we brought in a number of players. As we had a number of star attackers in on loan from the previous season, I felt the other areas were where we perhaps required strengthening. A backup goalkeeper was brought in (Daniel Wilks), while a number of defenders and wingers joined the club. Real quality came in the form of Craig Lee and Antonio Diaz in the middle of the park, with the latter being a very promising 19 year old, who could possibly go on to play Premier League football.


League 2 Proved To Be No Difficulty For The Mighty Westeros

We made a storming start to the season with four consecutive victories in all competitions. Premier League side Bristol City ended our run in the EFL Cup, where our stupid dumbass of a striker Regis Kayembe missed two late penalties. Crawley Town defeated us twice in a row (in the EFL Trophy & League 2), but then our form really picked up. Sixteen wins in the next eighteen games, with one draw and one defeat, epitomised our quality, and made certain are ambitions for immediate promotion. We were flying in the remaining cup competitions two, with comfortable victories over Hartlepool and Bristol Rovers putting us in the third round of the FA Cup, and a penalty shootout victory over Portsmouth placing us in the third round of the EFL Trophy (South).

League Table

Westeros Had Opened Up A 19 Point Lead At The Halfway Stage

Well, our impressive form saw us run away with the league, somewhat. It was our superior defensive record which stood out, having conceded just 19 goals in 26 games. But the most impressive thing in that league table is Charlton Athletic, who were on their way to becoming the first Premier League team to be relegated to non-league football (I think)!?!?!

Managing France

We Were Offered The Opportunity To Become France Manager

So yeah..... this just randomly happened. Following discussions with the rest of those involved, I took the job. We had the strongest team in the world, so winning trophies was certainly an expectation.

Five Wins & 1 Draw Was A Good Outcome From The Opening Six Games

My first game in charge was in a friendly versus Colombia, and we comfortably dispatched of them. Germany & Switzerland proved to be tough opposition in the European League, but we won three and drew once to top our group, with a 5-0 demolition of Algeria in the middle. Alexandre Lacazette was our star man, scoring six times in that six game sequence.
Amazing stuff! League 1 maybe on the horizon??

Also would like to make readers aware that I know updates to begin with have been rather bare but that was the plan. With incomings and out goings of players constantly there is a lot of upheaval in non-league so it's rather difficult to keep up to date myself, especially when writing about a season I haven't played :P

In the future, expect more in depth write ups as we progress through the leagues (hopefully) and have more stability with players! :)
Good to hear Mike!
