As the winter break rolls around, we end 2024 on a high - sending ourselves through to the KNVB Beker quarter-finals in the most emphatic manner possible (albeit against far weaker lower-league opposition):


Couldn't be happier with how the first half of the season's gone.

The board offered to re-evaluate my season objectives at the turn of the year, and given our impressive form our league expectation has risen from Europa League qualification to Champions League qualification (which means a top-two finish). This brought with it a slightly increased transfer budget and, more helpfully, a significantly increased wage budget (we were previously more than 100k over wages - we are now essentially within budget). Being so high over budget on wages stopped me signing anyone in the summer, as I couldn't afford to pay anyone. But these changes have meant I can finally make my first signing for Vitesse.


Only a 19-year-old backup keeper, but a much-needed signing as our previous reserve keeper is way below standard. Paes looks promising, potentially good enough to become first-choice, and £1.2m could be a steal.

Managing Norway is one of Fritjof's major management goals. Fritjof loves Norway. This guy Hareide had been in charge for six-and-a-half years and I'd basically spent the whole time waiting for him to leave so I could take over. Obviously the old prick has finally decided to fuck off now, when I'm half a year into a new job that could be key in restoring my damaged reputation. 

The timing is all wrong so I won't apply. I'll just have to hope whatever chancer they give it to (Zola, come on!?) continues the trend of Norse mediocrity so I can exceed all expectations when I finally do takeover.

7 minutes away from a masterclass.


This was Fritjof's 300th game in professional management (W149, D56, L95) and few have been more painful tbh.

Not for the first time this season, we've come from 2-0 down to win in dramatic fashion:


This time, though, it comes against our main rivals NEC, and it keeps us six points clear at the top with three games to go. Meaning we could, theoretically, secure the title next week.

We're still yet to wrap up the Eredivisie (with two games remaining), but we do have some silverware - the KNVB Beker.

Could and perhaps should have been secured sooner, as we basically limped over the line, but with one game to spare we are champions:


Cruijff Schaal, KNVB Beker and Eredivisie in one season! Fuck you Everton!

That's the end of the season.




Really couldn't have gone better. Three trophies is an indisputable success and will surely go some way to restoring Fritjof's reputation.

It's bad, but in all honesty I will be keeping my beady Norwegian eyes peeled for any interesting jobs that come up over the summer. I've basically just got here and I'm sure there's a lot to be said at this stage for stability in an environment that seems to suit Fritjof, but honestly the Everton experience has made me very worried about further career setbacks. While my stock's relatively high again off the back of this successful season, I'd rather seize the moment and try and jump up a rung or two while I can.
