Virtual Latics 2001/2002

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since its inception I have been playing Championship Manager 0102, in fact I am now a manager in an online World Super League.

I will be running a home save season taking charge of an Oldham Athletic squad 2001/02. 

You can watch the video highlights of the first pre season friendly at Droylsden and the opening EFL match at home to the fancied Cardff City on this link, which will be regularly updated so you can follow the teams fortunes.

I have never played Championship Manager so not sure if it displayed correctly on my iPhone... It was high speed text that described the match action in about a minute?

 

Final score: Latics 2 (Eyres, Eyre) v Cardiff 1 (Earnshaw) 😄

Yes, can be played at slower speed,  but as it would take ages to record and upload every match this is the best way to do it.

More  games to follow today with league table and cup updates.

 I've seen many Latics matches when we might as well have gone to the pub after 5 minutes 😁

Well its not easy being a Latics manager, but it's 11 games in and they haven't sacked me yet.

The board won't give me a penny to spend though.

I made a formation change and things are looking brighter

Go to my you tube channel link to catch up on the highlights of all the matches .

I must say I'm proud of the lads for the display away at Bury in match 10, its  a must watch match for all fans and will certainly lift the spirits.

If only it were real.😀

Corazzin likes playing against Swindon.

 

And an unseasonably warm late September in Oldham. 28 C!

More matches today. hopefully the board will give me some of the £100,000 I got for selling Mark Innes to Gillingham.  I'd like to bring in Wayne Andrews but they won't pay the £7,000 required.😒

 

Thought it was harsh to sack legend Andy Ritchie,  but they said at the interview that  I was a known as a leg end, so that was a good enough reason to be given the job,

Things are slightly improving, but still no money to improve the team.

Hector Sam came back to haunt us for Wrexham, but you will like Reading away result.

Here are the games up to match 18 and the league cup results.

This is a solid season so far BP and you clearly have us poised for the play-offs at least.

 

When do you replace Dino?!

Alas, with no money to spend I'm sinking fast.

More matches added day to day.

Although the text is fast, it is readable and the game is over in a matter of minutes.
I think we should go for this format when the season restarts! :)

Not seen any player move as fast since Wayne Andrews.😁

ps. the text can be slowed down, but can take up to 10 mins, too long for any Latics fan to suffer under my management.😉

It's looking like a normal Latics season and you know how long managers last here.

The board won't even allow me loanees, and I've had to release the high wages earners. the club is £500,000 in debt. I'm playing this with the actual 2001 squad, but if playing the game by the rules I'd be bringing in good freebies we have never heard of. I will have to do that in season 2002.

At least I've got them scoring goals.

SEASON 2001: HALF TERM REPORT FROM THE MANAGER BP1960

 

The current position of 17th in the league is concerning, However, I have received a solid vote of confidence from the board and we can hopefully improve results from now on.

Injuries and suspension have played their part in some below par performance, but unfortunately the clubs financial situation will not allow any new recruitments.

We have also had to release two of our highest wage earners, Matthew Tipton and Craig Dudley.

They haven't been too much of a loss though as forwards, Carlo Corazzin John Eyre and Ryan Sugden have been scoring freely.

We do need to strengthen our defence, particularly in the full back positions where on occasions we have looked vulnerable, and several loan deal approaches have been made. 

More video highlight have been added for you to follow the seasons' progress.

For your enjoyment the highlights of the away match at Bury, which was probably our best performance so far is shown below.

13 matches to go and we languish in 17th place and out of all cups (does that sound familiar?) 

I have received yet another vote of confidence from the board, but still no money to buy or loan players.

We can look back though to the FL Cup 1st round where we faced the high flying moneybags QPR.
