Global Dominiation:The story of an Irish Drunkard

Brilliant mate intrsting reading about leagues that aren't ver famous
Sorry never played the Chilean league so not sure how it works, the 8 places go to playoff right?

How comes you are 2nd in league table but have a C next to your club and the rest have PL?

Yeah spot on mate. Same idea as Argentina.
Top 8 qualify for 2 leg quarter final,2 leg semi and a 2 leg final.
Theres an opening stage and closing stage with the league having two winners each year.
In each stage teams play each other once.

I picked the leagues that i did because i rarely see a story outside the major european leagues and i wanted to be different.
Has been tough to say the least as its hard to find good players that will join me.

Update in half an hour or a bit more :)
May Update

Fans of Huachipato are today praising their manager Stephen Murphy after he led them to the Chilean First Division title.
It is Murphys first trophy as manager.
The club were considerd rank outsiders for a title they last held in 1974.
The Huachipato board have expressed their delight at the teams performance. Murphy has dampened spirits as he revealed he is destined for bigger things and is looking to movee in the not too distant future..​
A good story, like some other posters I'm not at all familiar with Chilean football but it's really uplifting to see a break from the stories that are exclusively European football. I really like your layout, you don't waffle or fill the spaces with useless information, what you write is totally relevent and there are some nice little turns, like the after-season bender that are refreshing to read.

Maybe you could post a few screenies of your top players at the start/end of the season just so we can see what you're working with? Maybe also a screenshot of your best starting XI? I know that most people won't recognise the players but again, we get to see what you're working with.

Looking forwards to another update!
@Miller11: Thanks mate,its nice motivation to see comments like this. Takes me ages to scout for players as i cant scout players outside of Chile and my scouts are so bad that i dont use them at all. Iv qualified for the Copa Sudamerica now so will post them results in more detail as thats the biggest competition im in.

Im afraid iv a 21st tonight and a party Sunday aswell so may only get one or two updatesby the end of the weekend.

Any screenshots wanted or feedback?
Thanks again for reading. (H)​
Really sorry i havnt updated the last 2 days.had a lot to do. Im playing for an hour or 2 mow before i go out and will have an update or 2 tomorrow.

Huachipato reveal new kits for the forthcoming season.

Stephen Murphy was proud to present the clubs new kits modelled by first team players Diego Gonzalez, Manuel Villalobos and Carlos Aguiar.
The kits were due to be presented at the beginning of the season but due to a mix up with the supplier the presentation had to be postponed.
A spokesperson for Castrol said they were proud to sponsor Huachipato and believe that it will be a good deal for both parties.
Murphy stated at his pleasure of the link up “Castrol are a global brand and the fact they wanted their name on our kit statess how highly the club are considered.
I think the new kits are fantastic looking and hope to see all the youngsters around wearing our colours.”

We also got a chancee to speak to Murphy about his hopes for the Closing Stage of the league.
“Obviously we want to build on our first League title and challenge again this year.
The club is in good shape,we have some good young players here and our bank balance is improving constantly.
The club has a bright future as long as the players work their socks off for the management team”
We also got to ask Murphy about his long term plans after he admitted an intrest in several high profile jobs in the past few months.
"I would like to say top the supporters that my mind is on the job at hand.
I have always and will always give 100% commitment to the cause.
I can confirm today that I will be here until at least the end of the season unless the board says otherwise.
Come January I don’t know what my plans will be and I will evaluate the situation then. Now if you’ll excuse me I have a hot date so that will be all the questions im taking for today.”
So the future for Huachipato seems uncertain as Murphy refused to rule out the possibility of leaving the club at the end of the season.
He seems to have settled well in the area and is even dating local girl Adrianna Salpa.

Huachipato miss out on final

CD Huachipato players today are mourning their missed chances.
They out played Universidad but ultimately couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net.
It was a day filled with emotion for the players as they were favourites to progress to the final.
Huachipato manager Stephen Murphy didn’t take defeat lightly as he walked straight off the pitch.
Murphy is an ambitious manager and its believed that he thinks he cannot take Huachipato any further.
Suporters are hoping this isn’t the case as he is held in high regard by the fans.
If Murphy does decide to stay he faces a huge challenge rebuilding his squad which is the oldest in the league.

Murphy rejects new contract
Stephen Murphy has today rejected a new 4 year contract believed to be worth £3000 per week by Huachipato.
Murphy who has 1 year left on his current deal is widely expected to leave at the end of his contract as he is disillusioned with life at the club.
Murphy stated this at his official press conference, “I would like to confirm I have turned down a new deal with the club. I have had many sleepless nights lately due to our poor form. I feel the time is not right to sign a new deal as I consider my options. I would like to thank the fans for their excellent support over the past 2 years. I would also like to say that I have a year left here and will give my all to the club until my contract expires.”

Murphy said he wouldn’t entertain any more questions on his future. He allowed another few minutes to thank his players for their season. Murphy also gave us a report of his best 3 players over the season.

Ian Holloway has today given his final press conference as Blackpool manager.
Holloway stated that the club have disposed of his services after several poor results lately.
Holloway said he would like to thank everybody associated with the club for their fantastic support over the past couple of years.
Despite being 8th in the npower Championship the club have failed to win in 7 games.

The race for Holloways sucessor is now on and former Man Utd legend Gary Nevill is favourite for the job.

Heres the odds thanks to

Blackpool hire Murphy

In a shock announcement to some Stephen Murphy has been given his chance to prove himself in Europe finally.
Murphy has been given a 2 ½/ Year deal which will be in place until 2014.
Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has expressed his delight at securing Murphy.
He had this to say “ It is with great pride that I welcome Stephen to the club.
He has proven over the last 2 years that he has all the required skills to succeed at this club.
On current comparisons he plays a similar style of play to Barcelona and Arsenal.
I was convinced that he wants to replicate this success here.”

Murphy welcomed several questions from the media and was very friendly to the press.

Journalist: Welcome Mr Murphy, how does it feel to be sitting here as the new manager?
Murphy: Im delighted to be here, Blackpool have given me a massive chance and I will do my all to repay their faith in me.

Journalist: So this isn’t merely a stepping stone in your career to greater things?
Murphy: No,not at all, I wouldn’t have taken the job if I didn’t believe in this team. I believe that the club will be able to match my ambitions.

Journalist: What kind of football should Blackpool fans expect to see?
Murphy: I will only play attractive attacking football while also being tight at the back. Some people compare it to Barcelona and Arsenals style but I don’t aim to mimic anybody else.

Journalist: What kind of transfer activity should we expect from you?
Murphy: I am only interested in signing the best young footballers from over the world. I can guarantee that I wont be signing any has-bens. I also wont be bullied by other clubs over valuations of their players.

Journalist: So we can assume you will have a hands on role with the player finances?
Murphy: Yes, I will devote all my free time to this club. I prefer a very hands on roll.

Journalist: How do you rate your chances of success this season?
Murphy: I am hoping for a good cup run and I also expect automatic promotion. I wont be satisfied by only making the play-offs.

Murphy: Im afraid that’s all the time I can spare at the minute as I have a busy few days ahead with the opening of the January transfer window. Thank you.

I will have a full January update up tonight betweeen ten and half 10 :)
I'm excited about this! Good story so far... Good luck at Blackpool Mate hope it's goes well
Im sorry i forgot to mention the fact that Blackpool were relegated last season so i will be playing in the championship this season.

Also here is a screenie of my tactic if anybody is curious
