Thanks :shades:

I feel very good now. :p


And the money is soooo good...

2nd League title: £535,000
French Cup: £1,200,000
League Cup: £1,500,000

Plus I had steady gate receipts at ~£500,000 per month all season :D

I'm up against Besiktas in the next round of the UEFA cup. More serious competition. They have just 14 regular players, so it's a bit of a long shot, considering all the randoms there, but I think I can do it.

It's the 1st of January. Mexès has arrived injured (:/)... only 5 days though. phew. At least the commercial manager was content :rolleyes:

Rudy Carlier got some acclaim as well:

5 weeks later I was offered the position of manager for Cameroon. With the World Cup coming soon, and the group stage they had drawn ((H)), I decided to extend my game by a tournament.

I'll come back to the WC later, as I haven't played it yet, and Cannes is more important here anyway.

After being forced out of the League Cup thanks to my excellent penalty takers, I was left battling on three fronts only. First to be decided was the league. I'll post the final standings only, but it was decided the afternoon before my 32nd match, against Sochaux away. On this afternoon Auxerre, number 2 in the rankings, and playing the 33rd match of their league ties, had to face 3rd placed Guingamp, away. They took a 0-1 lead, early in the game, but after the break Guingamp hammered them down to a 4-1 loss. It was the 22nd of April. Our match ended a 1-1 draw, the last points lost this season as it turned out.
It didn't matter. :)

Next decider was the 24th of May in Rotterdam.

I had to play PSV in the UEFA Cup final.

The semi against PSG had been quite close, losing 2-1 away, and having a penalty against the 80th minute of the home/return game, at 2-0 at the time. My GK, young Belgian Gulyas, held it and Kristjansson finished it off 2 minutes later.

The final was lots less even:
