The Luis Garcia Chronicles

View attachment 264682

I am Luis Garcia. You may know me well, I’m an ex-Spanish winger, with a little bit of a journeyman reputation. I had spells with At. Mad, Racing Santander and Panathinaikos, but my most well-known spell was at Liverpool, where I made 77 league appearances, scoring 18.

My career defining moment came at Anfield on the 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] May 2005. My 4[SUP]th[/SUP] minute goal put us on the road to Istanbul. The final itself is history, and one of my proudest moments in football.

Now it’s my turn to hit management. It’s high time I gave back to the world that gave me so much joy, and I am determined to have my own Istanbul moment, this time as a manager.

As an aside, I'd like to credit both Lippo and JamieWilliams for the inspiration behind this story, Manuel Pablo and JC now have a new rival on the block!

Well, it is a start. I haven't been back to Barca since my youth days, and I would definitely consider it. I am doubtful though, the lack of a possibility of promotion does put me off slightly.

I've got a job! Sporting are expecting a lot of me, but they are a talented enough team, and really shouldn't be down in 19th. I'm looking forward to meeting the squad, and getting this season back on track. It's good to be back in football.

Nice job, look forward to it. Had plans for a Dennis Bergkamp story after seeing his "footballs greatest" but happy with my road to glory at the minute! Good luck.

The trophy cabinet looks very bare. My first task will be to try and add to those Liga Adelente trophies we have. Then we start fighting against the big boys.

These are the players I have to work with. I'll be honest, I've been more impressed. We have a good centre back pairing who I'll be looking to make the heart of my team. The lack of variety up front is worrying though, given my inclination not to use a target man.

Not the start I was looking for. We were undone by a masterclass by Halilovic. In the end, it was two long range efforts that undid us, but it was promising for about 60 minutes. The players are up for the fight, and we will get out of this quickly.

Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted with the point. I'm also delighted with the clean sheet. But, we could, and should, have won this one. Our distinct lack of striking options is causing problems, and I'll be looking to resolve that if possible in January.
