Hmmm Tranmere manager just been sacked, as they lay 24th in League 2, I'm tempted to Leave Basingstoke and safe Tranmere.
Tranmere seem to have a more talented bunch of players, but only have 6 points from 10 games. I have 19 from 9.
Well I'll update with my decision soon

Its a tough choice isn't it? Do you feel Basingstoke are progressing? If so, then stick with it

they progressing, and what I have set up at basingstoke is 3 years of work, I have not applied for the job but will consider it if they offer me it with a contract.
I have a soft spot for Tranmere living in Merseyside, so with them being one of my local teams Id like to save them.

Is that Danny Holmes from Burton Albion?

no he got released From Tranmere in the First Season, then he signed for me when I got into the BSP

---------- Post added at 12:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:44 AM ----------

Its now July, and I'm preparing my team for League, so I had to rid my team of League 2 and lower quality players to get in better. Ins and outs.......

In's

Wabara Reece (Free Agent, seen on the trial day)
Lee Bowyer (Free)(Swansea)
Ranisav Jovanic(Free) (Dusseldorf)
Gareth Roberts (Free) (Port Vale)
Andrea Mutombo (Loan)(Portsmouth)
David Perkins (Free) (Colchester)
Daniejl Subotic (Loan) (Portsmouth)
Lee Novak (30k) (Huddersfield)


Out

Wayne Graves (Released)
Sido Jombarti (Relaesed)
Ron Murray (5k)(Shewsbury)
Nicky Featherstone (16k) (Dag & Red)


I think thats the best time I've had in the transfer market on this game, Getting the world class Andrea Mutombo back on loan, had him on this game 2 years back, and was one of the best players.
All my signings have been qaulity really pleased, you may notice I have paid my first Transfer fee of 30k on striker lee novak, hopefully he pays me with goals.
Subotic another loan player from portsmouth is another brillaint stikrer, i;ve been lucky this transfer market.

Coming up............New season line up and League 1 media prediction /board expectations

Good transfer coup in getting Novak. He's been quite useful for Huddersfield in the Chamionship on my game. At League 1 level, he should be outstanding. And for only £30k. Congrats on that

okay time for league one, before I start the pre season friendly's I'll post up the first 11 with a brief background on them.

GK Dimi Konstnatopolus - was my first choice all last season in league, cant find a better keeper I can get he will be first choice in League

RB Danny Holmes - Been with since the BSP, and now he seems to finally playing against people at his level.

LB Gareth Roberts - Expercianced very high stats, had to upgrade on robbie Watkins, despite Watklins being great the last 3 years he did not have the Qaulity to supass league 2

CB Lucas Radal - Signing of the season from last season, keeps his place at centre abck

CB Jason Bristow (c) One of 2 players who were with my team from the start and still hold down a first team place.

RM Lee Bowyer - he's now 34 still good stats, will need him to stay in this league.

LM Andrea Mutombo - On loan from Portsmouth again, why Portsmouth never play he's prem qaulity.

CM Ian Snodin (vc) - The other player who been at my team since the start and stilkl at first team choice. He has progeseed steady and keeps stepping up his game to each new diviison.

CM - David Perkins - Another siging that will greatly improve my sqaud, good all round midfielder.

CF Lee Novak - First buy for the club, he cost 30k and big things expected from him.

CF Daniejl Subotic - A huge striker on loan from Portsmouth, my target man.

Basingstoke 0-3 West Ham Reserves (FR)

Basingstoke 1-0 Blackburn Reserves (FR)
Subotic


Basingstoke 1-0 Portsmouth (FR)

Basingstoke 3-0 Brighton (L1)

Its important to do well this year my home record stays in tact, out of those 3 home games I did not loose.
New players are still settling, so hopefully perfomances will improve. The game V Watford was tough, I could not even see the ball they had it that much.

Player Of The Month - Gareth Roberts - The new left has been very exciting, creating much up front and getting 2 goals this month.

Well for the 4th year running I crash out the FA cup at the first round, this time I was the favorite, as stockport were in league 2. Still that didnt put them off and they won comfortably, as did every other ******* team against me this month.
Gillingham the only exception as they were worse than me, and that's hard to do.
Injurys have played there part, and Southampton in one game injured both my centre backs, forcing me to play a left mid at centre back.No wonder I conced 4.

Player Of The month - Hard to pick because they have all let me down, I supose Andrea Mutombo finding a bit of from is promosing for the team

Typical isn't it? You start doing well and the game doesn't like it so it injures all your players so that you don't do well. I'm convinced there's a line in the programming: "If xdoes too well, then injure y number of players. haha". Or is it just me who thinks that?. Anyway, keep going and once your players come back, you should rise through the League like a pheonix through the flames:D

December coming soon, I'm very much in a relegation dogfight this season, most my players have been back at full fitness but don't want to no.
I'm really not enjoying myself at the moment.
