I Need a Dollar Dollar, a Dollar Is What I Need

  1. I Need a Dollar Dollar, a Dollar Is What I Need

    1. January 2004

    Today was my birthday. I turned 19. Today I made myself a promise, that I would succeed as a football player. My dad told me that I was stupid to think that. He told me
    There are two types of people in this world. 1st kind is people who live in big houses and drive fancy cars. The second type is us. People who make their gardens beautiful and install their sprinklers. A man's job in this world is to work, feed his family and to die. If you start dreaming, it will all blow up in your face, son.



    17. June 2004

    I have saved up 1,200 dollars, to go to England and play professional football. My dad says, it's stupid and everyone should stay where they belong, not go where they will be out of place. He says that I'm not good enough to play football. That I'll never be good enough.


    2. September 2004

    My father took my 2,000 dollars I had saved up and bought a truck, so we could have a business together. "Telstar and Son" he says. I hate him. He stole my money. Damn puto. He stole my money. I cried for 3 hours straight.


    12. September 2005

    My grandma gave me train tickets to Mexico City, because I can't fly a plane from Los Angeles to London if an illegal.


    2. July 2006

    I have officially failed as a footballer. No club wants me. They say that I have flair, but I don't have the skill to compete at that level. I guess my old man was right. I guess there is a place for everyone. And my place is in LA, workin with my dad, makin rich people yards nice.


    1. January 2007

    I started learning "How to be a coach". I just started my classes in Mexico.


    3. February 2007

    My dad died today of a heart attack. I can't write down what I'm feeling. I can't do this right now..


    2. June 2013

    I finished school today. I'm 27 years old and I'm ready to start looking for jobs. I also found a picture of me as a kid. I'm gonna tape it in here.

    Today I was looking for job as a manager. I had no luck. No one answered my emails and even if I called there, they put me on hold for 2 hours and then said that they don't need a new employee. It was a bad day. Maybe I wasn't made to become anything associated with football.

    7. June 2013

    Looks like there is no place for me in the footballing world. No club wants me. Maybe it's because I'm dark skinned or maybe because I'm too inexperienced. I also applied for work in McDonald's and and some other fast food restaurant just to make some money until I get a job in "football industry".

    10. June 2013

    I got the job in McDonald's. I'm cleaning tables, serving food and making the food. Basically everyone does everything around here. I even saw the horrible clown here. I don't know what it is, but it scares the shit out of me.

    Today I applied for the manager role of Asteras Tripolis, a greece club. To be honest I'm not very hopeful. But at 11.15 they offered me a job interview. Is this gonna be my first job? I hope so.

    I was approached by Tripolis, but I decided to delay it, seeing that I could apply for Marseille and Swansea position.

    Today I was offered an interview by both of those clubs I mentioned the the day. I haven't slept normally for the whole week and I doubt today will be an exception.

    24. June 2013

    Believe it or not but I was offered to manage Blackpool without even applying for the job. I demanded for a parent club but they didn't want it so refused to manage their club.

    27. June 2013

    As you may guess, my application to manage Swansea was turned down. They went for Steve Clarke instead of me.

    OM decided to hire Bielsa. No surprise in that. I was stupid to even think I could get that job.

    2. July 2013

    I decided to accept the Tripolis job. I quit my McDonald's job and begged my granny to give me money to buy a plane ticket. My contract lasts for 2 years. I get 3,600 pounds a week and if the team should be relegated, my paycheck takes a 35% cut.

    Thanks, not sure. I'll see where the future brings me.

    Today I met the players and I have already identified 3 assholes in my squad. When I said that I think we could qualify for EURO cup, they said it was unrealistic. I know that it's unrealistic, but I think you'll perform at a higher level, if you have higher hopes.


    9. July

    The first days here have been really hard. There is so much to do. I don't know, if I can pull this managing thing off. I'm havin doubts about it. Maybe I should have staid to flipping burgers.


    13. July



    Today was my first game ever as a manager. I played against Banik Ostrava. We lost the game 2-1. I need to make some changes, and hopefully I won't get fired.


    15. July

    Believe it or not, diary, but I just signed motherfucking Iaquinta. My problems with not scoring are over. I'm also trying to buy Humam Tariq. I also signed Mensah. Those guys are just awesome and they happened to be without a club. What was I supposed to do? Let them stay as free agents?

    I signed Tim Wiese. The dude has made 6 appearances for Germany. That shows his class. Not everyone can play in the great German side. Today was also our second friendly, which we hoped to win. And we lost the game. Plus Iaquinta got injured.

    Thanks. I had just watched the movie, before doing this.

    Tomorrow we will be playing against Partizan. If we are losing after 45 minutes, I think I'm gonna yell at them, show them who is the boss. I feel they don't respect me. That's why I've been losing matches.


    20. July

    Today was a match-day against Partizan. Also board returned to me with parent club options. I had to choose between Fiorentina and Monaco. I chose Fiorentina. I also signed Tariq. My scouts had recommended him, so I bought him. Walking into the dressing room, I felt the pressure on my shoulders. I knew I had to say something to make them want to win this game. From the first 15 minutes I saw that the team still didn't know how to play with the new formation. First half ended in a 0-0 draw. I had to make them angry, so they would come out and start playing like professionals, like a team that wants to win no matter what. And we scored on 61st minute. But it was offside. i yelled at the referees till my lungs started hurting. Luckily opponents goal was also disallowed. The game ended in a draw. I yelled at my players till they started crying. You have to break them, before you start molding them. Later I saw this picture on one of my players twitter accounts. He won't be so happy tomorrow.
