nobody probably cares but i thought id tell you all about the game im doing as im "jolly proud" of the way its gone

i decided to be carlisle in league two , they have a decent league two squad and i got promoted with little fuss in my 1st season

2nd season in league one i brought in pericard and he just ****** all over the leage and got me 30 goals and i got promoted there with relative ease and i was in the chapionship

i gotta be honest i struggled a bit in the chapionship and hovered around mid table as carlisle dont have much cash so had to rely on frees and loans all the way through.
at the end of the season i put a great run together and scraped the playoffs
1st leg of semi final went 2-1 down to palace but then in the 2nd leg i turned it round and won 2-0 and got in the final vs blackburn who i beat 1-0 and that was it - id done 3 successive promotions and got carlisle in the premiership!

as i speak i have just had my 3rd game in the premiership - i have won 1 drawn 1 and lost 1 but my squad is very chapionship in standard and i can see my self struggling with them but i aim to stay up in whatever position and build on the squad next year :D

ive posted a few pics of my team and a few key players

what do you think?

Not a bad team there Sam. With your brilliant managerial skills I can see you finishing around mid-table. Good luck tall :D

thought id give you all an update

i finished a very respectable 12th which i was very proud of as it was a stuggle

ive started my 2nd season and been busy in the transfer market trying to bring in a better standard of players and clear my squad of all the leftovers from the lower leagues

ive played 4 in the 2nd season and im top of the league winning three and drawing one mainly thanks to cavenaghi

im hoping for europe at least this season and i think ill leave once ive won the premiership! :p

heres some new players i got....
