Well, I got fired in late October, after three successive draws in which we blew the lead after the 80th minute (in two cases, we were up 2 goals at one point in the second half). This is by far the hardest challenge I've faced, as players simply don't respond to anything. I guess they just refuse to live up to expectations, and would rather do as little as possible to get paid. Lewandowski (23 shots, 2 on goal), Kerzhakov and Begovic were the worst, while my best players were subs that moved into the starting lineup because of injuries: Morten Gamst Pedersen, Yaroslav Rakitskyi and Sebastian Larsson. Final tally - 2-4-4, and a loss to Blackburn at the first hurdle in the Capital One Cup. I may try again with a smaller squad (maybe 20-21 instead of 25), although at one point in my season, I had eight players injured at the same time, so that may be pretty risky.

I gave it two more tries, but I can't get anyone apart from the centerbacks to play well. It's QPR again every time. The last try I had a short leash to begin with, because despite signing Begovic, Baines, Cabaye, Hamsik, Papiss Cisse and Lewandowski, the board was upset that I didn't sign any high profile players. The club started with a 4-1 win at Newcastle, but then lost to Tottenham 3-2, Manchester United 5-1, and Hull 4-0 in the Capital One Cup. I got the sack 7 games in.
