Fleetweed Looking For New Boss

Fleetwood Town are looking for a new manager to help them achieve promotion from League 2 this season. Managers such as Phil Brown have been linked to the job, however the Fleetwood chairman is looking at a new young manager to grow with the club and succeed. Unknown Football Manager player known as JS has applied for the job in pure hope.
Good luck, welcome to the site :)

Season One




The results left my Fleetwood side in second place gaining automatic promotion which was my aim. However, the poor results in the last third caused the second place as for most of the season, winning the title looked destined but to be robbed by 2 points off a good York side. The Capital One Cup was not a success as the side was knocked out in the first round by a higher placed Leeds side 2-1. The Johnstone's Paint Trophy was a similar story as Oldham knocked us out in the first round also 2-1, with David Ball scoring the only goal in both games. The FA Cup however was a much better story as we made it all the way to the fourth round to be beaten by Notts County on a replay 2-1 after beating Birmingham, Coventry and Portsmouth in previous rounds. The success in the first season gained me a new 3 year contract on £13,000 per week. Youl Mewene got Fans player of the year while Jon Parkin scored the most goals for the club with 29, 26 in the leaague.

Season Two - Part One


Maybe Only £1.6m spent, but there were many many arrivals and departures this season to bolster the squad for the upcoming League 1 season.


After a fairly weak start in which the bookies predicted, I decided to resign from my role as Fleetwood manager as I believed I could take the club no further than I already have and a more experienced manager is more suitable for the relegation battle they may come across.

Season Two - Part Two

JS goes to Bolton. After former manager Freeman got sacked due to his poor start to the season Bolton have hired JS to take control of the rest of the season with the expectation to save the club from relegation from the Championship.

Results with Freeman

My Results


The marvelous turn around since I joined the club seen the club come third in the league despite being in the relegation zone in November! The club just missed out on automatic promotion and had to go through the playoff process where the side met Hull in the semi finals. A 3-1 win on aggregate saw new signing Ravet prove his worth and got the side to the Playoff final against recently relegated Sunderland. Bolton youngster Zach Clough shown that I was right to choose him in the side as he scored 2 in a 3-0 win to send Bolton back into the Premiership. Elsewhere in the FA Cup we made it to the 4th round where we narrowly got beat 3-2 by a top Arsenal side. Bolton youngster Zach clough got the Fans Player of the Year reward after I allowed him to break into the first team, proving a good decision. Marvin Sordell got the most goals with 29 after a amazing season for Bolton.

Season Three - Part One


After getting the club back to Promotion I was given a staggering £45m transfer budget in which I spent £40m and made a income of £10m from departures. The key transfers being Peybernes for £8.75m, Will Hughes for £7.5m and Henri Lansbury for £3.5m. The main leavers from the club were Mark Davies who went to Southampton for £4m and David Ngog who left to Blackburn for £3.3m




A good start overall in the Premier League with the only loss being a close fought match against Manchester United 3-2 with Sordell and new boy Dyer getting on the score-sheet. Elsewhere we beat Rotherham 3-1 in the Capital One Cup second round. More detailed updates will be posted from now on.
How far actually in the game are you? Are you updating it as you play, because if you are, can you please slow down? It's easier to read monthly updates :)
Thats where I'm now up to, from now on updates will be as I play
Wow, what a turnaround! Good luck in the prem :)
