#FM15 #FordFocus : But the days grow short when you reach September

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to #FordFocus! Club: Guildford City. Mission: Reach the Football League. Method: “Searching the Stats!” We are in the September of Season Three, and we have won the league in both of the first two seasons. Today, six games into the new season, we sit top of the Ryman Premier with pretty much the same eleven that took the field in my first ever match. Oh, and if you can name the song and artist in the title, I’ll send you a free copy of “Johnny Cooper, Championship Manager” via email – comment below!

‪#‎FM15‬ ‪#‎FordFocus‬ : It was a cold wind in August

What is going on in the world when Russia are European Champions and Ronnie Delia is England manager? I have no idea, but it doesn’t really bother us down in the lower leagues. We are preparing to take on the likes of Chelmsford, Corinthian Casuals, Dulwich Hamlet and Kingstonian in the Ryman Premier League and my oh my it has been a tough pre-season.

#FM15 #FordFocus : February Fortune

We move fast into February, and the Ford is motoring along nicely. I’ve had job offers aplenty, but at this moment in time I am committed to working at the Spectrum and I cannot see that changing until something really interesting comes along. My methodology and approach is keeping me in good stead and we playing some lovely stuff. A good February could see us promoted in March, so let’s crack on!

#FM15 #FordFocus : January Juice

Happy New Year folks, it is January 2016. Guildford City sit 16 points clear at the top of the Ryman Division One South and look good for their second promotion in two seasons under my tight fisted stewardship. January looked like it could be a pivotal month, only four games but three were against sides right down the bottom and one against second place, so four wins would surely see us over twenty points clear at the top.

#TheTaleOfTorrevieja : Cronica/Match Report : La Nucia 0 – 1 CD Torrevieja

With three suspensions and four injured, the Torry line up at La Nucia was unusual, Burguillos and Eddy holding the defensive middle ground with Borja and Juanra featuring in the middle of the park. Torry were all at sea for the first quarter of an hour as La Nucia were denied by the post and then by two acrobatic Oscar saves. For a team already relegated to the Preferente, they were showing signs that it would not be a long stint out of the National League division.

#FM15 #FordFocus : Autumnal Awesomeness

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, this is the greatest save on earth. Ok, it’s not but I am enjoying it. Sure, the Spectrum is not the best stadium in the world, it is barely a stadium, and we are playing in the eighth tier of English football but I really feel we are going somewhere. It is the beginning of October in the second season, and as the leaves start falling off the trees we sit top of our tree, unbeaten in our opening ten games. Will the change of season into Autumn change our form? Will the clocks going back put us back? Will this be the hardest season within the season?
