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).
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)!?!?!
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.
