#FM15 #FordFocus : Twelfth Night

Guildford City have twelve games left to secure promotion out of the Combined Counties League. We currently sit nine points clear, so I would be quite surprised if we failed to see this out considering we have won our last eight matches, but hey, weirder things have happened. I’ve ended up at Guildford City as they are former giants of the amateur game but never quite made it into the football league and I plan to get them there before moving on to bigger things myself. That’s the plan anyway! Continue reading “#FM15 #FordFocus : Twelfth Night”

#FM15 #FordFocus : Krooning our way to the title!

As we entered 2015 we sat top of the table but we knew there was a very long way to go in this very tight league campaign. The next two months were going to be vital, eight games where we could start to break away from the peloton or find ourselves very much part of the gang.

#FM15 #FordFocus : City Living

Welcome back Ladies & Gents!  Thank you for sticking with me as we move into December in my #FordFocus save where I am managing Guildford City of the Combined Counties League.  City used to be one of the great amateur sides in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s but were unable to get elected to the Football League.  Well maybe, just maybe, I can lead them to that one day.

#FM15 #FordFocus : Carragher, you are crazy….

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to #FordFocus the latest in a long-line of saves I have written about on #FM15.  As the god of Strikerless himself, Guido Merry, eloquently put it “man, you have had more saves than my missus has shoes – and she has a lot of shoes!”  Well, I am lucky to have enough to time to play and write about this wonderful game and I am very grateful for that.  Anyway, I am digressing already.  I am picking up the reigns following the first game in October 2014.

#FM15 #FordFocus : In the beginning….

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my new #FM15 series, #FordFocus.  For those of you going “What! Wait! Hang on! What happened to Haarlem?” then please see the previous post where I cry over my laptop for the reasons I had to end that wonderful, wonderful journey.  Haarlem is the past and, almost laughably, Guildford City FC are my future!

#FM15 #HaarlemGlobetrotting : At last, Ajax

The Haarlem Stadion will be full for the first time since their reincarnation.  Ajax will visit for the first time in years.  HFC Haarlem will be back in the national newspapers for footballing reasons for the first time since pre-2010, when the original old club had the life support machine turned off on them.  De Roodbroeken play in the Fifth Round of the KNVB-beker tomorrow in a game many Haarlem fans could not have thought possible eight seasons ago, reports Nick Dekkers of NU.nl
