PostToms Trip Of America

I have loaded up 17 leagues and will play across america and try to manage for atleast a season in my career. So i might stay 5 years and one clubs and 1 year at another.

Leagues Loaded


First Club In Career


To bear fair the only reason i started here is because of my love for The New England Patriots. So First stop New England. I am using a database Posh made and its a 20 team league with everyone playing each other twice so 38 games. There is no salary cap, draft or loads of different contracts so its a lot easier.

Do it mate! Otherwise you'll be missing out on playing some good ol' Canadian football (I promise it's not as bad as our FIFA rank of 85 makes it seem!)

Well Pre Season has now come and gone and here comes the update. We had a relativiley ok pre-season. It was mainly used to see who was dead wood and who played best where and i belive i have determined this. We started with a 1-1 Draw with the reserves. It seems bad but they did not score and our defender scored a own goal. Next we went away to Maryland where we beat them 2-1. A good solid game but conceded a great goal. We then again went away to play Boston Athletic where again we scored 2 goals and won 2-0. A dominant game where we only allowed them to have 1 shot which was off target. We then travelled to Crystal Palace Baltimore where we had a fairley evened match after our centre back was sent off. The game finally finished 1-1. Last game was against our affiliated club and it was richmond. The game finished 2-1 to them but was used to test out youth and reserves.





We where very low on staff and had 3 not including me and the assitant so appointing some become a priority. I managed to get a very good youth coach called Mike Lapper from Columbus and a Coach from Kansas called Zoran Savic. I also managed to get 2 coachs without a club but one was also coach at Sweden. We now have a good coaching staff good enough for the MLS campaign ahead.





Our key man Taylor Twellman will be out for at least a season with a neck injury. Because of this i have had to recruit another striker. So due to Twellmans injury i signed Leo Aro on a free. He is only 26 and has very good stats and i am sure he will score loads of goals in the MLS. Due to only having one right back i went out and signed Alexis Danelon from Rosario Central. He is a very versitile play and can play down most of the right hand side and was a bargain at only 65K. last but not least we loaned Cristian Diaz from Newells. We only have to pay £150 on wages and a fee of 135K. He can play on both the right and left midfield and will be key in our campaign

And finally here is a picture of my injured player Taylor Twellman

Well its half way through the season now and you know what that means A UPDATE. Towards the end of the first hal of the season we managed to pick up a bit of form and get a few draws and even a few wins. Our main striker Leo returned only to get injured again.

Here are the Results


We managed to get a few spaces clearer from relegation but it is still pretty tight.


The North American Super Liga has been drawn and New England have been drawn with Chicago Fire, Pumas and Puebla. To stand a chance of going through they will need to atleast beat Chicago there fellow American team. They will face Chicago first followed by Puebla and finally Pumas

End Of Season Update Woop!

Well after being predicted 12th in the league we finished a okay and respectable 13th in the league. After a shaky start to the season things started to pick up and we got on a good run compared to the start of season.

The Results


The Table





After a fustrating season for New England Manager Tom he has decided to step down as manager. It was a up and down season which left New England 13th. No one knows where he will be off to next. We will just have to wait and see.

Pre Season Update

We have had a great pre season and managed some great results in the friendlys. This including a loss to New York by only one goal, a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace Baltimore and a 3-1 win over Miami FC.



Transfer Wise we managed to get some great bargins. We decided to raid a relegated Kansas City side and signed there goalkeeper, striker and centre midfielder. We also announced Houston Dynamos as our parent club and they loaned us young striker and midfielder Michael Dombrowski. we also managed to get another two young strikers on free and another 3 players cheaper then there value. Many youth or deadwood was released as they where no longer needed.

End Of Season Update

Well its the end of the season so its time to update. We went on a dip in form and could not find a win but the team pulled together and we got second in the league. The board had threatened about not re newing the contract and sacking me and when i finally did get the contract i decline due to the fact the board had annoyed me that much.





Redgrave will now again be looking for a club. Bookies are suggesting that he will not come to the USA again in a while and will look towards another country.

Keep up with this, not many people have covered these leagues before so I'm interested to see how you do

Redgrave Jets Of To Haiti


It has been announced today Redgrave has joined Hatian team Don Bosco FC. They have finished 4th and 5th the past to seasons so they have a good team. There are 14 teams in the Ligue Haitienne meaning its a 26 game league. Top position qualifys for the North American Champions League. From seeing the league tables from the past two years it is a very inconsistant league as last years winners finished 9th the season before. Will Redgrave be able to break the top 3 in his first season. No on can be sure.

Pre Season Update

Well we have had a long pre-season which is around 6 months in total. It was a long period as i did not want to over work the team. Following are the results of the pre season



We only brought in two players. We released a few as the squad was too big.

6 months pre-season?????

You seemed to be doing ok with Boston, and then the toys came out of the pram. Still, Haiti sounds interesting. Let's hope it doesn't end like this
