LLM.com Updates: Week Ending 2/9/12


The Good Doctor was back this week with his Pogon Szczecin side, about to take Europe by storm once again in season 2051/52. The Polish Super Cup was the first piece of silverware put away, with a 3-0 rout of Legia. A record breaking season in the league saw Pogon take another Polish championship, and a League Cup victory over Lech saw three domestic trophies added to the club’s cabinet. In the Champions League, the Polish champs saw off a group of Club Brugge, Shaktar Donetsk, and Man Utd. Chievo and Benfica fell by the wayside in the knockout rounds, and then an epic 5-2 aggregate victory over Real Madrid propelled them into the final. Here they faced Inter Milan, and an early goal saw the Italians on the back foot – from here, the Poles never let up, and The Good Doctor claimed yet another massive trophy for himself with a huge 6-0 result. http://lowerleaguemanager.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=229&page=19

 

Rodderas had a slightly different sort of adventure in season 2029/30 of the EPL with his Sheffield Wednesday team. Despite having a reasonable transfer window, the first fourteen games of the season read: 0 wins, 2 draws, 12 losses. Despite picking up a win in game 15, the writing was on the wall and when he began to  eye the vacant Villa position, fans called for a resignation and got one. Taking Aston Villa over in a relegation-threatened 16th placed, Roddy had to right the ship despite rock bottom morale and a loan debt of over 80 million pounds. Somehow he did it though, and Villa finished a creditable 13th (they’d take it at the moment, I reckon). http://lowerleaguemanager.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=171&page=8

 

Everyone’s favourite happy-go-lucky cab driver Bigargon was also back for another round with Italian C2 side L’Aquilia. Despite a massive clearout of playing staff at the start of the season, the club went on a superb winter run which eventually culminated in Bigargon’s side winning C2/A league by a solitary point. Further success was to follow though as the Italian side won the C2 Super Cup with a 3-1 aggregate victory, all the goals being scored at the ‘Tommaso Fattori’. How will his side fare in Serie C1? http://lowerleaguemanager.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=543

 

Finally, mvp brought his Notts County team back to League One for the 2017/2018 season. Predicted to finish sixteenth, it was a season that defied all expectation. His apparent tactical mastery saw a record breaking season, as the black and whites finished one point short of the magical 100 point barrier, placing first in the league with ten points to spare. The Johnstone Paint Trophy was a second trophy for the season, and this illustrious title obviously didn’t go unnoticed as a Russian First Division side came calling, offering petrodollars and a chance to get into the Russian Premier League. http://lowerleaguemanager.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=568
