    Chapter One

    The Changing of the Guard








    It was a normal day, much like any other... Though I guess that was the point.
    I sat in my house, watching Sky Sports coverage of Arsenal vs Man United and
    breaking news came in. I'm still struggling to come to terms with the news. I'm
    not a Liverpool fan myself but I grew up liking them. Their academe was always
    going to win respect from a boy who grew up supporting F.C. Barcelona.

    Things are about to get interesting.
    I had no idea how much of an understatement that would end up being.

    The 2014/15 season was one of unfulfilled expectation. A lot was promised
    and the city felt the loss with sorrow, despair... and anger. There was an
    overwhelming sense of distrust between the fans and the club. They give their
    time, faith and passion for 90 minutes every game but the return was a
    disjointed effort that felt disingenuous. This feeling of disconnect was
    untimely what cost Brendan Rodgers his job.

    If you ask 100 Liverpool fans for their opinion on the Northern Irish Manager,
    you'd get 100 different opinions; each with their own merit and validity. Very
    few Liverpool managers have created such discussion and criticism but If you
    asked me why he didn't survive I can sum it up in two words.

    "Bill Shankly"
    When you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, Brendan Rodgers was
    everything Bill Shankly
    wasn't. Where Shankly had unbridled charisma
    and belief, Rodgers had apprehension and tempered expectation.
    Commitment
    to the ethics of the city and an unwavering desire to instill
    a work ethos; that the club belongs to, and only to the fans. This was
    Shankly's legacy, one which Brendan Rodgers did not embrace.

    Rogers gave us one of the most exhilarating and enjoyable season's in recent
    memory
    when he went close to ending the Mersyside club's wait for a 19th English
    Title, but his over all vision and execution as Liverpool Manager was, to me, a
    reminder of what the club lost when Shankly stepped down: Passion and belief.

    No Liverpool fan should ever have to be made dream! The city has it's own
    arrogant swagger that Shankly identified with and encouraged. He wanted the
    club to be the city, the bleed for them, to play for them, and to deliver on the
    dreams of a city with working-class roots.

    To dream is to be a Liverpool fan... It's an ingrained culture in the fan base, in
    the city, in it's people. Brendan Rodgers did not represent his club or his people.
    This is why he failed.

    Steven Gerrad, for the first time in 17 years, is not a Liverpool first team player.
    This in itself is almost unthinkable and only for it being the reality, I'd never even
    think it to be possible. But we now have to move on without our talisman.

    Off the field, this is an exciting time to be a Liverpool fan. Anfield has remained
    unchanged for 17 years when the new Anfield Road end stand was opened in 1997.
    The stadiums capacity was reduced from 61,905 to 45,276 after the Taylor Report
    in 1994 ordered all British stadia be seating only.

    The iconic stadium is too small to match it's club's history and ambition. 54,000
    won't see us return the stadium to it's former size, but it's better than staying
    with what we have.

    Honestly though. Cheers mate. The standard of presentation has gone up since last year. I've been keeping an eye on everyone's stories and they look pretty good I've a reputation to uphold so I'm making an effort to be more creative this term around

    And so that's the current state of affairs. Liverpool F.C. gave their man
    and extra chance and he failed to deliver. So here we are, and so it begins.

    There was the usual flurry of activity surrounding a new appointment, but when
    it's a big club, the media pays more attention. I'm fairly used to press conferences
    from my time as a Deportivo player. It was something you got just used to playing
    in La Liga.

    The interview continued on like this for another 30 minutes. Just asking me the basics,
    will I sign anyone, what kind of football will I play, the usual. Rodgers got sacked for
    underachieving so I have to address that first. I need to pull the squad back together
    and try rescue our top 4 ambitions.


    Though I guess at this stage, you're wondering who I am...
    My name is Javier Gonzalez Mendez

    To truly understand who I am, I have to first tell you what I am.
    As a kid, I wasn't rich, I didn't have much, but I had football!
    This is my story.

    "A long time ago, in a city far far away"


    I grew up about 6 blocks from La Masia. It was only a stone throws away so I
    grew up only one way. Every weekend my father would take me to church:
    The Camp Nou was our temple; los culés would be our choir.

    Football after school was a must. I'd run out onto the side streets, still
    wearing my school uniform and play with the local kids. Each street had
    it's own 'team'. A group who knew each other and played together.
    Sometimes if we could find them, we'd play against the kids on another
    street. It was a kind of territory battle; the honour of the street mattered
    to us.

    I remember arriving home from school when I was eight. Christ, I remember
    it like it was yesterday. My father was already home, which was strange
    since he usually didn't get off work until 6pm on a weekday. Both my parents
    stood in the main room of our small house, wide smiles on their face as they
    handed me a open letter... a letter with the Barcelona F.C. seal on the cover.

    That was probably the hardest year of my life; and I had only moved up
    the street. Some of the boys had flown over entire continents to sleep
    in the bunk next to mine and they were naturally more lonely than me.
    Though we were all home-sick, each one of us had people we left behind.
    So we we all bonded together. We became each others family.

    Training in the morning, school in the afternoon, Training in the evening...
    It was bloody hard work. If our school work slacked off, we wouldn't be
    allowed train for the weekend matches so we all pulled together and helped
    each other out. I think that may have made the difference. Getting both an
    academic and football education.

    The F.C. Barcelona Chapter




    I started my club career at F.C. Barcelona.. Having worked my way up through
    the youth team, I was eventually offered a senior contract and placed in their
    reserve side F.C. Barcelona B when I was 17 years of age.


    I was a regular in the B side, making 81 appearances and scoring 7 goals; making
    18 assists over 3 seasons. I even got my first taste of success here, winning promotion
    to LIGA adelante and enjoying Success at international youth level as Spain U19s won
    the European U19 championship.

    We finished 5th in LIGA adelante in my final season with my boyhood club but I hadn't
    done enough to win a contract extension. They let me go after 7 years at the Camp Nou.

    The R.C. Recreativo Chapter





    I was signed on a free transfer by R.C. Recreativo and this was my first experience at
    a new club. I've only even won the Barcelona kit, even as a child so this was something
    new. I took the opportunity by the horns though and I enjoyed my 3 years here.

    Having learned to play my football at Barcelona, I was definitely one of the most
    technically gifted players in the squad. This quickly cemented me as a first team player.
    Though with the quality in the squad, promotion was never a realistic prospect.

    My final season at Recreativo was ultimately frustrating as we lost our relegation
    scrap and were demoted tot he 3rd tier of Spanish football... for me however, a
    mew challenge awaited as R.C. Deportivo put in a €1.1M bid for my services.

    The R.C. Deportivo Chapter





    This was where my career really kicked off. I can honestly say that I felt at home here.
    I felt like I could express myself and after a first season of highs and lows we reached the
    LIGA Adelante play-off positions. It was heartbreak for us though as we lost out at the
    final hurdle; Alcorcón beat us in the Play-off Final.



    Name:  Untitledg.png

    However, it was a defining season for me as I was voted 2021/22 Supporters' Player of the Season.


    Name:  Untitledg.png
Views: 5829
Size:  34.5 KB


    The following season we were determined to go one better and achieve our goal of promotion,
    which we did by securing 2nd place in the league. Once again I was voted Supporters' Player
    of the Season and after the season finished, the Manager asked me into his office... He named
    me R.C. Deportivo club captain.


    Name:  Untitledg.png
Views: 5843
Size:  68.8 KB


    My first season in Top Flight Spanish Football. Twice voted Supporters' Player of the Season
    and now the Club Captain. My career had peaked and I was loving Life at Deportivo. Our first
    Season in LIGA BBVA was a scrap, as we avoided Relegation on the final day to survive by 3pts.



    Name:  Untitledg.png
Views: 5843
Size:  166.5 KB


    This was the moment when I first considered Management. I was Club captain,
    I was invited into the managers office to discuss tactics and on the training ground
    I was asked to put my arm around the youngsters. I was enjoying the increased levels
    of responsibility.


    When I look back, I wonder why it toured sour.





    Again voted Supportes' Player of the Year for the following two seasons, I captained our
    side to avoiding relegation successfully. it all changed before the start of the 2026/27 season
    when the Manager called me into his office... he was to strip me of the captaincy.

    I was furious. The fans loved me, I was a first team regular, why did he want to demote me?
    That one was a season to forget as we were relegated from LIGA BBVA.


    Name:  Untitledg.png
Views: 5838
Size:  115.6 KB


    I was distraught. We got relegated and I blamed myself. I felt that if I was the captain, I'd have had more control and I'd have been able to do something, anything. talk to the players, encourage them... IT was then when It hit me, I'd made that mental transition from player to coach. I cared more about the result and how my team mates were doing than my own performances.

    With just one more year left on my contract, I announced my intention to retire at the end of the
    season. But I wanted one last hurrah! One last good day and to go out with a bang, I wanted to retire
    having helped Deportivo win promotion!

    And so I retired. R.C. Deportivo holding a special place in my heart as it was the place I
    found my passion. The fans acknowledged my efforts for the team and told me I'd never be
    forgotten. I left the club to chase my coaching badges, to chance a management career.

    Cheers mate. My first Liverpool story just invented the characted and outlined him as a youth focused coach.
    Least year I continued that but in my journeyman story I tried to give him more background.
    This year, I want him to be an actually person with his highs and lows. I discovered that he was a Deportivo captain and despite winning trophies with Spain's U19s, he never won a senior cap; I can only assume this made him determined to help youngsters make the transition form Under age to senior football.

    Next year, I may introduce his family, estranged son who's using his player Agent status as a cover for a black-market human trafficking ring

    Each yea, I grow this character more and more

    October 4th 2015. Brendan Rodgers is sacked after a 2-2 draw at
    home to West Ham United. Sitting 11th in the table and already
    knocked out of the Capital One Cup, FSG decided to bring in their
    new manager.

    This is the mess he left Mendez to clean up.

    Rodgers had a decent pre-season, winning all his games and giving fans
    hope with an opening day 1-0 home win against Manchester City. But having
    won 1 of their last 6 Premier League Games, Liverpool have slipped to 11th
    place in the English Premier Division Table.

    Mendez now has 2 weeks to assess his options during the International break.
    With tough games coming up against Napoli, United and the Merseyside derby,
    Mendez has his work cut out for him.


    Next 5 fixtures.

    Things are encouraging on the injury front as only Henderson
    and Flanagan are our long term absentees.

    My first job is to address the moral of the squad. There's no point deciding
    tactically how I want to take approach the next few games until I know who's
    in the right frame of mind. I want players with fight, gall and passion. I'm only
    playing players who show a hunger for excellence. Liverpool is not anywhere near
    where we should be, if they players can't believe in themselves, why should the fans?

    Already I can see a difference in the boys mentality. They have a little bit
    more sparkle in their eyes. I told them to go to their international sides and
    just play for themselves. Leave Liverpool behind them and just play like their
    at a trail; play their hearts out and come back to us with fight.

    We're going to need it.

    I was bloody proud of the lads this international break. I told them to go out there and play
    for themselves and they put in a great sift for their national teams. Daniel Sturridge made
    a second half appearances against Slovenia and scored a goal, giving me something to think
    about as he makes his recover from a recurring knee injury.

    Two medium term injuries to add to our problems. Still, I guess
    it could have been much worse.

    A highly competitive month with everything at stake. Our European charge
    is at a decisive stage and two of the biggest games
    of the Liverpool season...
    Welcome to Liverpool. Welcome to the 5 Year Plan!

    Delighted to get my first win of the new Liverpool Era. We went behind but the boys responded
    fantastically and the result looked inevitable.

    Despite conceding two late on, I was very happy with this result. Daniel Sturridge marked
    his return to the starting XI with a brace against the great rivals. 2-2 isn't a disaster, and
    I consider it one point each rather than two points dropped.

    Absolutely gutted with this result. We struggled from the off and Everton seemed to be a step
    ahead of the play each time there was a one-on-one challenge in midfield. Our defense gave
    away two penalties which was very disappointing since I felt that we could have gotten a draw
    if we didn't have the chance the game in such a manner.

    A miserable month where everything that could have gone wrong,
    did go wrong. Glad this one is over.

    We didn't have enough shots in this game. Didn't challenge the Napoli goal enough.

    Deeply upset with this game. We were the better side but our strikers couldn't put the ball
    in the back of the net. We wasted so many opportunities and West Brom sucker punched us
    in injury time.

    Another 0-1 loss. With only 3 shots on target, moral is starting to be a real problem as
    the squad looks bereft of confidence right now. I'm hoping things can pick up but our
    are really performing under par right now.

    This win was important, if just to register a win. We needed a result to go our way.

    0-2 down inside 30 minutes. And once again, very few shots on target. Creativity in midfield isn't
    helping either as we're not putting our (misfiring) strikers into good enough positions. I'e a lot
    of work to do to salvage this season.

  49. Struggles aside, it's great to see you back mate. Presentation is simply superb as always!

  50. Ouch those are some pretty nasty results, I am currently doing a private save with Milan and had the same start then I changed my tactic around and once I got the balance right we went from doing terrible to becoming unbeatable so don't worry too much. I have total faith that you'll manage to get your squad going in no time.
