The Lambert/Adkins Challenge...


In 2011 Paul Lambert's Norwich City did the impossible... Took a league 1 team to the premier league. From the 7-1 defeat to colchester on the opening day, to the win at Portsmouth gaining promotion...

Then the next year Nigel Adkins Took his Southampton team to the same feat.

Now its my turn.....

New Manager

The Team I Have Chosen to take to glory are Crewe Alexandra. Specifically because of the great youth system and a determined young team.

If you haven't guessed yet these are my aims:
Get Crewe to the premier league
  • Utilise youth system
  • Get fans back to the ground.
  • BECOME A LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!

So Here is the beginning of my story.

Here goes nothing! :)
Seems a good idea, can't wait to read a bit more. Good luck


The Board gave me a quite generous transfer budget of £300,000 And my aim was to get a top half finish.

Danny Redmond £60,000

Next Will Be the Half Season Update!

August-December Update

Our Motto this season is "Against all odds..." Nobody expects us to get promoted so it was our mission to prove them wrong...


So August was a ok month. Unfortunately the capital one cup drew us against championship hull city so me not knowing what striker to pick out of Clayton,Pogba,Moore,Leich-Smith we lost 3-1 even though at one point we where leading! Then we had 3 clean sheets on the bounce before Pogba scored our first goal of the season... in the third match!


Our rough start continued with only 3 wins in september. 3 losses to Doncaster, Notts County and The orient got the fans doubting of my managerial skills. However our fortunes were soon to change.


In October we did not lose! our strikers found their form and their scoring began to give us points! Getting us from mid-table to the play-off places. We also progressed in the Johnstone's paint trophy.


Our Unbeaten run continued! In a tough mounth where we played some of our promotion rivals.


All good things come to an end... so Bury and Swindon beat us this month when we played very poor. We are through to both the FA Cup 3rd Round (vs Leicester) And The Northern Semi Final Of the Johnstone's paint trophy (vs Bradford)!

Stay Tuned For More!
Good story so far, but would be nice to see the players whom you've brought in's stats and attributes - their CA and PA, stuff like that, not only their faces. :)
I will do!
