Liked the Orgryte result, but there is room for improvement in general. Awesome story! ;)

Come on Bill Grose! I know that feel, I had it with Liverpool before, but then I just kept pushing on and now I'm in 2016, and still managing Liverpool, although my contract expires in the summer and I'm unsure about what to do :P

And now its time for the 2014 End Of Season Update.

Well that's 2014 over, I will still be at Torns next season which will be the 50th year of the club's existence, I am honestly disappointed that we will still be in the 3rd Tier of Swedish Football as I had hoped that in 2015 the club would be in the Superettan which is the 2nd Tier.

Nevertheless we finished 7th, not quite as high up as 2013 but still something to be pleased with when we were once again relegation candidates. We will not have to play Landskrona and Varnamo next season as they were both promoted to Superettan , we will not have to play Orgryte, Halmia or Qviding as they were all relegated.

Unfortunately we have to once again play Skovde and Kristianstad next season as they were both relegated from Superettan. I don't mind playing Kristianstad too much as I know we can comfortably beat them but I am not looking forward to playing Skovde again.

The last two months of the season were very pleasing as we won 5 of the 8 games in those 2 months, the only teams we could not beat were Landskrona, Karlslund and Limhamn Bunkeflo. Our best win of the five games won was a 2-0 over Ljungskile, we did have a 3-0 win away to Sleipner but the Ljungskile win was one I could enjoy more.

Unfortunately Erik Ronningberg has now left the club to join Skovde in the 2015 season, this is disappointing even though he did not get into the starting 11 very often.

I now look ahead to 2015 wondering if this will be the year we will be promoted to Superettan. Unfortunately I cannot buy any new players as we are already over our wage budget for 2015 but I can work around that.

And now some pictures.

Thanks guys, I asm pretty confident that we can go up this season, the odds are better than last season but not as good as 2013, we just have to wait and see how it goes. :)

Hey, stay confident. The season just gone showed that you have great consistency over a number of years. You're building quite a footballing empire here and I reckon it will be one to rival Barca in the future :)

Thanks Rookie, it would be nice to someday rivel the likes of Barca but my thoughts are on the current season and no further forward at this time.

I don't really have anything to say about our 2015 Pre-Season other than it was very successful and was a great build up for our league campaign this year.

Here are the results

Helsingborgs IF 3-1 Torns IF
Malmo FF 1-0 Torns IF
Torns IF 1-0 Rishoj
HB Koge 1-1 Torns IF
Fremad Amager 0-2 Torns IF
Torns IF 5-1 IFK Klagshamn
Torns IF 2-0 Eskilsminne
FC Rosengard 1-3 Torns IF

We kick off our league ccampaign at home to Husqvarna FF which is a game I am quite looking forward to. After this we have an away game against Varbergs BoIS whom we have never face while I have been in charge.

I am now even more confident that this will be the season we go up to Superettan even though our promotion odds are 80-1.

I leave you with a couple of pictures.
