Warren — FM 2011 Hartlepool United Part 2 2012/13

Hi everyone and welcome back to the next instalment of my Hartlepool story here on allthatisfm. I have to start with an apology as I haven’t been commenting on other people’s stories recently but I have been ill the past week and a bit with flu. Let’s get back to the story and after 18 games of the season played I was well placed in the play-off spots hoping to hold onto one of these places come the end of the season.

December Results

A total of 6 games game before the year ended and I was very pleased at the end of the year as I finished it with an unbeaten month. A tricky game against Blackpool ended in a respectable and probably the likeliest outcome of a draw. Successive 4-1 wins against Ipswich and Plymouth was followed up with a 1-1 draw against leaders Wolves. The month was completed with two home wins against Wigan and Coventry respectively.

Performance of the month

v Ipswich

Two goals apiece from Henaini and Moore was enough to overpower an Ipswich side who were running into a bit of good form. With the game being away from home it just piped Plymouth to the POTM.

January Results

Even thought we were dumped out of the 3rd round of the FA Cup we managed to pick up maximum points in the league so I have to class this as a successful month. Wins came against Swindon, Sheffield United and Hull. A highlight of the month was the performances of January signing Suso who came from Liverpool on loan for 6 months until the season ended as I felt he could push the team forward into a promotion spot

Performance of the Month

v Hull

Goals from Suso and Norregaard in the final 5 minutes of the match saw a dramatic turnaround as my Hartlepool side came from one nil down and won the game in the dying minutes of the match.

Febuary Results

I was pretty disappointed with the way things went in February as our performances didn’t show the end results as I felt we could have come away with more points than we did. It has slightly dented the title hopes but it wasn’t too bad and I can still reach the top two places if I can have a good run of form.

Performance of the Month

v Preston

The stand out performance of the month was defiantely the 4-0 away wins against Preston. Changing to the 5-3-2 with wingbacks formation looked to be the main reason why we won this game so well and it is always nice when both of those wingbacks score.

March Results

A half decent month but it wasn’t promotion pushing form. The less said about the Brighton game the better as I had a number of chances to win the game but never converted them. Another poor performance lead to a 2-0 defeat to Doncaster but in all fairness they placed really well on the day. Moore was unsurprisingly man of the match against Reading and two goals from Watson ended the month of a high in a 2-0 win.

Performance of the Month

V Reading

A superb hat-trick and the first of the season for my Hartlepool side from Luke Moore set up a thrilling 3-2 win over Reading. Special praise has to go to Moore and Henaini as he worked his socks off and deserved a goal.


I got carried away again and forgot to take a screenshot but I looked back at the fixtures and worked out how many points they would have had at the end of March so the table would look like this.

1. Wolves                74pts

2. Sheffield Utd    74pts

3. Newcastle         72pts


5.Wigan                  68pts

Thanks for reading


P.S I also had an offer to go and manage a team in Germany called Eintracht Frankfurt but I rejected the offer of course.

    Hey Warren
    Glad you have recovered from the flu. Based on «your table» it looks like you have a great shot at automatic promotion or even the title itself which would be fantastic.Good luck with the season finale!

      Hi Kevin

      Thanks for the message and I think that we have a huge opportunity to get the automatic promotion spot and I will be delighted if we did and even more delighted if we could knick the championship title as well.

    Hey buddy, long time no speek. Hope your feeling better now and up for some FA Cup fun…our boys are against Stevenage. I just hope its better than the last time. I saw us win 2-1 in the replay all those years ago and Shearer was our saving grace. Anyway back to your story. You have picked up some really great results and if the form continues or even gets better you’ll be in the auatomatic promotion fight till the end. Hopefully you can do it and we’ll be atching Hartlepool in the Premiership…that would be very cool mate.

      Thanks but the FA Cup didn’t really fill me with joy at all and it was a awful peformance hopefully there will be a vast improvement next week as it Sunderland away….

      I fell that if I can continue the form im in the promotion fight will go right down to the wire. It will be close and I really hope next season we can be playing the likes of Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal etc.

      Thanks the reason I seemed to have got better is the fact that my Hartlepool are exceeding expectations again and are also close to winning the league

    Good to her your feeling better, I’m quite lucky as I didn’t catch the flu or cold during my school holidays! Your Hartlepool side still remain in contention for the title, it’s a very tight race. Good luck!

    Hi Warren,

    The weather is not good these days. I was ill in the past two week or so. Good run of results there. The table is very tight and any team can claim the automatic promotion spot. I believe Hartlepool stands a good chance. Good luck.

    Thanks Lye

    I feel so much better now and if Hartlepool can end the season being promoted to the premiership I will feel over the moon.
