    Well I'm away for a stiff drink after watching Rotherham v Brentford!
    We go 0-1 down after only 12 minutes and then squander chance after chance, until the 89th minute:
    1-0
    1-1
    2-1
    Rotherham United celebrate the victory!
    Talk about nerve-shredding!
    Really chuffed to get through, downside is we had to play Feghouli and Saviola the entire match so they'll really be struggling for fitness when we meet Chesterfield.
    But at least we've made it!
    Congrats to Chesterfield and commiserations to Brentford and Accrington.

    Play-off Semi Final: Chesterfield 2 Accrington Stanley 0

    Chesterfield are off to Wembley!! commiserations to Accrington who played their hearts out today. I was actually pretty nervous today as we couldn't beat them in the final game of the season however today was a different proposition.
    Captain Courageous Mykhalyk gave us the lead in the 38th minute after a nervy start. Italian hitman Paloschi made up for his horrible performance last week with a brilliant goal to seal the game. Bravo was marvelous and gave us another clean sheet
    I thought that we might be made to pay for our lack of finishing prowess on the final game of the season however luckily we had done enough.
    Cheers Machine, I'm excited about going to Wembley and hopefully it will help my team financially. Like Rotherham, it's a race against time to get some of my players right for the final but hopefully it pans out for us.
    Good luck Machine!
    Onward and upward to a Wembley Final!

    An 89 in exchange for 2 x 78's was just too good to pass up, and as a short-term signing at this stage in the season he could play a big part in our promotion ambitions
    He'll make his debut tonight for the trip to Gillingham, 3 points there would be nice to keep the momentum going and our recent record against them is good so fingers crossed! (Although have probably just jinxed it )

    And so the game dies even further....
    Another stupid introduction to appease the kiddies moaning about concerns etc etc.
    Further takes the management element out of the game because now this actively promotes player hoarding even further now, as you will never ever have to worry about your wage bill etc because you can just loan them all out....
    Supposed to manage a squad Loan offers from managed clubs fair enough from unmanaged just makes an absolute mockery of managing a squad, finances etc.
    What chance do the little clubs have now as the rich will become even richer...
    Stupid, stupid introduction to the game and another knife to the back of the game in general, dying on it's feet.
    The art of actually "managing" is a thing of the past

    As the most tough-as-nails, competitive gameworld EC1 is obviously the grandaddy....but as a "most active" forum-based EC it struggles.
    7046 and 7777 must easily be 75% forumers of whom a fair chunk will have posted at least once in the last month.
    Towards the end of my 5 year stint my perception was that EC1 had maybe 25% forumers of whom maybe the same 9 or 10 were keeping the old girl going as a forum presence.
    There is such prestige attached to being a part of EC1 that hardly anyone ever quits, and as the years go by and folk get older they keep the teams but have less and less time for SM and the forum in particular.
    7046 and 7777 still have a healthy amount of manager turnover so there are always new kids on the block looking to shake things up, but at the same time still enough longer-serving managers to give the gameworld the continuity and solidity that a successful gameworld needs.
    It's weird though how EC2,3,4, & 5 are all always 95 -100% full and yet have pretty much zero presence on the forums.
    There is an EC2 thread but hardly any posts and I honestly couldn't tell you anyone who is in EC3, 4, or 5......spooky

    ***BREAKING NEWS.....CHESTERFIELD PRESS CONFERENCE***

    Surprise press called by Chesterfield late this evening.
    Chesterfield boss Machine:
    "Ladies and gentleman of the press, thank you all very much for joining us here at the B2net on such short notice.
    All of us here at Chesterfield are thrilled to bits to have finally secured our status as an established Division 1 club - we have been in Division 1 before however being relegated in our first Division 1 season meant we had to come back stronger and tougher, and I feel that we have achieved that, although obviously as manager I wasn't too happy with the way results went in the last few games once we were pretty much assured of safety.
    However I have to put that aside and credit the players for a fantastic season, one that will never be forgotten and for those of us who have been with the club since I joined in season 7 survival in Division 1 really is a dream come true.
    From taking the job at the club when we were in Division 4, it was always my dream to get to Division 1.
    When we finally got there, my dream changed to making sure that we were good enough to stay in the top flight, and I was bitterly disappointed when we couldn't achieve that first time round.
    But this season we have - and the fans will never forget the names of Victor, Mkhitaryan, Kuyt, Bonucci, Elano, Hubocan, Gattuso, Eduardo, Quaresma, Gourcuff, Saviola, Hangeland, Kuzmanovic, Taiwo, and all the other lads who played their part in not just keeping us up, but at times playing some great stuff and at one stage even threatening to grab a European spot.
    Does that make them the greatest Chesterfield team ever? Difficult to say - I've worked with some fantastic players in my 5 years here and some of the best performers were not always the "star" names, but a team of Stekelenburg, Caceres, Weir, Bordon, Hleb, Ramires, Seedorf, Dzsudzsak, Lavezzi, Bojan and Falcao might give the current lads a run for their money!
    In all seriousness, it's been a fantastic 5 years seeing the club grow from Division 4 strugglers to hitting the heights of Division 1, and the Chairman, players and fans are hungry for more success and who can blame them?!
    This brings me to the reason for calling you all here today - the future of Chesterfield FC.
    The Chairman and myself have had long conversations regarding what is required to take the club to the next level - from training and tactics through to transfer funds, contract renewals, scouting, and most crucially the time and energy required to implement it all and bring all these elements together.
    The great news for the fans is that the playing squad have all agreed to new contracts that will keep them with the club for several seasons to come, with the sole exception being club captain Rino Gattuso who has indicated that he feels it might be time for one last challenge elsewhere before he hangs up his boots.
    I respect his decision, and Rino knows that if he goes he would not be leaving the team short as we have lads like Kuzmanovic and N'Koulou who can step up.
    I mentioned there about the time and energy required to take the team to the next level - and I'm afraid that this is the difficult part of what I have to say to you all today.
    For me, honesty with the Chairman and the fans is the most important thing, and the truth is that to keep the club in Division 1 season after season and to improve on 14th place will require 100% commitment, focus, drive and determination from players, coaches - but especially the manager.
    The uncomfortable truth is that, after 5 long years and some 11 or so seasons and at least 536 games, I no longer feel that I can give the club what it needs.
    I was a rookie manager when I started out all those years ago, and what I've found is that what I enjoy most is working with the younger players and seeing them improve year after year - this season was undoubtedly exciting but I'm not sure it really compared to those heady days in the beginning when we had the likes of Bojan, Kroos, Pjanic, Ayew, Bonucci and Russotto all breaking through and starting to make a name for themselves.
    What I've come to realize in my chats with the Chairman is that transfer negotiations and contracts are not where I see my strengths or my passion, and at this stage in the club's development they no longer need a "grass-roots" man such as myself but someone who can work with the agents and the top stars to try and entice the very best talent to Chesterfield to take them forward in Division 1.
    It is therefore with great sadness and a heavy heart that I announce my immediate resignation from Chesterfield FC.
    The Chairman has reluctantly accepted my resignation although he fully accepts my reasons, and I informed the players earlier today who have for the most part taken it well.
    I apologize to any of the Chesterfield fans who may feel let down by my decision, however as I have stated this will give the club the chance to bring in one of the several young, hungry, talented managers who I know are waiting for an opportunity with a club like Chesterfield.
    Ultimately I would be doing myself, Chesterfield, and the wider EC1 community a disservice to carry on in the role when the demands of the job no longer tally with what I enjoy most in football.
    Many will see this as lack of ambition and who knows they may well be right, however I see it as a perfect chance for the club to progress and for me to go away and re-energize ahead of the next challenge, be that in EC1 or elsewhere.
    All that remains is for me to thank all of the fans, players, and managerial colleagues who have made my time with Chesterfield so, so enjoyable - thank you all, and I hope you'll forgive me for rambling on but hopefully as it's the end of a 5-year-era you'll be able to forgive me...!"

    The time is right guys - close season, D1 survival secure, 5 years in the job, team in good shape for the new chap, etc etc....it's now or never for me!
    This in no way reflects on how I feel about EC1, and if it was as simple as leaving Chesterfield for an unmanaged D4 challenge I may well have done that instead, but as this is EC1 I'm just going to have to take my chances like everyone else and see what happens in the future.
    Any D1, D2, or D3 (except Forest!) vacancies that come up I won't be going for to give someone else a shot, however if any D4 vacancies pop up and anyone wants to give me a shout that'd be great
    Good luck guys (see most of you in other gameworlds anyway lol ), can't believe i'm about to go and make the mouse-click of doom but it's for the best - although I'm sure I'll have my moments of 100% regret!
    If the job offer goes to any of you lot who don't fancy it then I hope that wozlives or KopStar or guys of that ilk get the chance - cheers all!

    Blackpool reach Champions League Final!!!
    Blackpool have reached the Champions League Final for the second season in a row after winning a nail biting penalty shoot-out. Blackpool took the lead through Garay. Samuel Eto'o put Blackpool two goals ahead (3-2 on Aggregate) in the 70th minute. Edu scored for Schalke to make it 3-3 on Agg and the game went into extra time.
    Both teams looked tired in extra time, and both clubs were happy to take the tie to a penalty shoot-out. Podolski, Sliti, Meireles and Willian all scored their penalties to make it 4-4 in the shoot-out.
    Martin Petrov stepped up to take Schalkes fifth penalty, but Blackpool keeper made a terrific save. It was up to the vice captain Fernandinho to take Blackpools final penalty, and he struck the ball into the corner to send the fans into celebration.

    Just had a meeting with the Chairman but not too sure what he was saying as I was too distracted by his extremely gorgeous secretary. If we didn't have an important match tonight then I think I would ask her out. Wonder what the Fat Controller would think about that??? ;)
