I started of my first season at Chelsea. Didn't do quite as brilliant as my
board expected from. My team was not very consistent, reaching (and losing)
the final of the League Cup but getting knocked out at the third round of
the FA cup at Leeds United.
I the league I was on 6th place and under fire of my board, suddenly things
were going better grabbing 10 points out of four consecutive matches, I
thought I was on my way up to Champions League spot, but my board fired me
after this 4 game without losing streak, I was gutted, there were only 5
games left in the season.
Going into summer break without a team. I became manager of First Division
team Reading (they got promoted in the first season) 10 matches into the
season, they were 7th in the league.
I had a little cash, but by selling a few players I was able to buy some
Premiership outcasts. Wiltord, Wreh (both Arsenal), Matteo (Leeds), Carr,
Dominquez (Tottenham) all left the Premiership bench for first team football
with Reading. In the meantime Chelsea fired their new coach Egil Olsen
after just three matches in the second season - so he did not do any better
I won a lot of games and everything was going great with Mark
Nicholls of Chelsea (who didn't play any matches in my time at Chealsea) becoming
a profilic goalscorer, scoring 13 goals in 20 appearances. I reached the playoffs
(third place) and the FA Cup final(!) after beating Liverpool and Leeds in
the quarter and semi-final.
How did it end? guess, I lost in the final of the playoffs with a 1-0 defeat
against Coventry and also lost the FA cup final aginst Huddersfield (also
0-1) and ended up with nothing.
