Ligue Game #37 – Away vs Rennes – Santana is back. I begin defensively.
Besnard to Machacek in the 47th
Them in the 78th
Fevgas to Besnard in the 83rd
We win 2-1, MOM is Besnard
Ligue Game #38 – Home vs FC Sochaux-Montbéliard. I begin standard. This is Lerager, Jens and Isimat-Mirin’s last game with us and I’ll sub them in today.
Solanke to Lorenzo, 1st minute
Them in the 4th
Santana crosses to Lorenzo, goal , 22nd minute
Solanke sinks a PK in the 29th
Santana to Besnard, goal, 52th minute
Santana to Lorenzo, goal, 68th minute
Besnard to Solanke 77th minute
Do you want to see my last game of the season, probably my last game in France with Bordeaux and likely my last game in this dynasty?
Here you go! They had a solid 17 shots and 8 on target but we only allowed one goal. MOM is Lorenzo’s hat trick. I sent in all three of my intended subs. We just have a lot of quality.
Besnard went from a 3 star hot prospect to the dominant force in the ligue in just two years.
Here’s the Ligue
We finished in front 11 points over PSG and 13 over OL. OL made the champion’s league. Good job archenemy! You can see our lethal GD. We scored a lot of goals.
My Goals for Bordeaux
1. Get them back to EURO this year in year one. COMPLETED Year One
2. Do some damage in the EURO. COMPLETED Year Two
3. Get them high enough to qualify for the Champion’s League. COMPLETED Year Two
4. Win Ligue 1. COMPLETED Year Three.
5. Win a Cup. COMPLETED Year Two
I finished all of my goals as well as super secret goal #6 – do some damage in the Champion’s League. We knocked out Real Madrid, Barcelona, Benfica, and showed up against At. Madrid. I only lost one game in the Group Stage - away at Bayern.
GK Rico – 3. He is locked in for now as he didn’t lose momentum as the season wore on and he showed up for big matches.
DC Holding – 2- My 2nd worst starter these days but he’s my captain. Can’t pull him too quickly.
DC Joao – 2 – Solid but have we grown past him?
DC Nielsen – 4. Locked in and a rock at DC
DMC Bell- 3. Locked in
MC Machacek – 4. Locked in and a rock at box to box. Runs it well.
MR Santana – 3. Love him and he’s my 2nd best player.
ML Lorzeno – 3. Locked in.
AMC Marchi – 3. Locked in as well.
ST Besnard – 4. My best player
ST Solanke 2 – My worst player but he broke the Ligue in the latter half of the year and finished very very very strongly.

The big question….
1. Play another year. I earned this! See if we can win the Champions League!
2. Move to another team and repeat the Bordeaux experience.
3. Retire. I’ve already done one more full year than ever before! I can retire having won the Fortuna twice, the Ligue once, and doing serious damage in both Slovakia and France and Europe.
What teams are open right now?
Proleter in Serbia
Radnicki in Serbia
Greece national team. Rev. Pavol Masaryk speaks Greek from his seminary…
Should I apply to run Greece?
This is a good place to retire! Having taken a nationals squad to push yourself in the type of football run.
Keep it going! :)
Any of the options sound fun...
As of right now, nope. We've retired.
