I'll play it but I have a feeling it's going to be hard!

Beat Swindon 1-0, drew 1-1 with Wycombe.

Bloody dull division, and I can’t even sign Zamora to liven things up.

You used to be in it sean :)

drew millwall reading and bristol city first 3 games

beat millwall 4-2 after winning my last friendly 7-0

ooof, troublwe is the lack of depth in the squad, lack of money (24k transfer fund to start with) and the fact the team is a huge pile of onions.

I sold that Indian striker for 720k thinking there would be at least two other decent strikers. How wrong I was, so I got Phil Jevons in on loan.

How many loan signings can you have?
2 at a time, but how many a season?

Dunno how many a season, I just have two people on season-long loans.

I lost to Reading too, with a bloody 84th minute goal :(.

Well, having lost to Brentford 3-2 and thrown mytself out of the League Cup…I thrashed Oldham 3-1!

2933 manager points after 7 league games. I have only now realised that if I had not played my reserves in the LC I would have got many more points. Oops.

I have yet to summon any enthusiasm for this challenge.
