In my last post, I covered off the start of my sixth season in charge of FC Kaiserslautern, as I looked to build on a fantastic campaign last year, finishing in seventh place overall despite expectations of relegation. I thought I had qualified for Europe but it was not to be, BMG snatched it from my grasp on the last day of the season by winning the DFB-Pokal to claim my place.
As I mentioned last time around my aim this year would be to ensure there would be no fake news scandals at the end of this season. Qualification for Europe simply had to be the target. With some fantastic performances in the early stages of the season, including a quite magnificent 7-2 decimation of Borussia Dortmund, things look to be right on track as we were sitting in third place at the end of October.
With a few tough tests in November, it was time to see if we were still boys, or had become men.
