From bottom of the world to the Big Time? BaP Story of David Burt

This is my BaP story, starting in New Zealand and ending God knows where. I had given my self Manager stat of 20 so I can go into management at the end of the career. Manager Save will be for FM16 after it is released.

I had given my self some modest stats based on my personality but most of the attributes are random.
My CA is 70 and PA -9. This should at least get me somewhere in the world surely?

Shout out to Lippo255 and his story C.J Lippo, A life in football. and PatrickLFC and his story A kid with a plan - Patrick Liljenqvist for inspiring me to do this. Check them out as they are awesome.

30th July 2014, Christchurch, New Zealand

I was out in the backyard doing keepie uppies and Mum called for me. I rushed inside and said "What now Mum!" "There is a man on the phone for you", I grabbed the phone and sat on the sofa.

"Hey David, this is Ernie Merrick, you know the manager of Wellington Phoenix?"

"Oh yea ah hi"

"We would love if you could come to Wellington and sign for us. I was impressed with your trial earlier this month and after talking to the scouts that saw you doing your football seasons with St Andrews College XI last two years, we think you have huge potential, you could even play in the best leagues in the world. We want to give you a start here in Wellington"

My eyes widened and I instantly said "Yes, I want to sign. This has been my dream. Thank you!"

"Well get your **** up here in Wellington and sign the contract!"

Youngest Player ever for Wellington Phoenix for FFA Cup appearance.



Wellington beat Sydney FC to go into round two. I was brought as a sub late in the game and was able to do a few passes and tackle. But its good to know Ernie wants me near the first team so soon.

October 2014

Unfortunately I have sprained my ankle so I am out for 6 weeks. I am disappointed but optimistic about my future at the club.

My Tutor

Vince Lia has been asked to tutor with me. Can't wait to learn stuff off him!





[HR][/HR]
Fast Forward to July 2015 End of Season


16 appearances (15 league and 1 FFA) but most of them as a sub. I have been pleased to picked up two goals, both against Wanderers in different games. Ernie sees me as sub with versatility, as he plays me either AM (C), M (C) and ST (C). Average Rating of 6.76. I also was named in Wellington Phoenix Season Team.

Phoenix Finished 3rd in the League, Lost in Semi Finals against Sydney. FFA - We lost to Wanderers in Quarter Finals

My Attributes have increased slowly.



[HR][/HR]

International

I have made the Under 20 team 9 times. Scoring 2 goals and providing 2 assists. Standout game against Bermuda.



I got to play in the Under 20s World Cup in New Zealand!



We made it to the second round where we faced Mexico. I was not picked at all in the game. We lost.



But in September Anthony Hudson the All Whites Coach chose me to be in the New Zealand team against Yemen in a friendly.

Press Conference

31st July 2016

View attachment 224642

Ernie Merrick: "I would like to say that David Burt sitting on my left side has agreed a transfer to CSKA Mosow and he will join them in February on his 18th birthday. We are glad that David gets to play a final season with us before he leaves."

Reporter: "David, what influenced your decision to go to Russia when you also had offers from Denmark and Italy?"

David: "CSKA Mosow play in the Champions League, have been previous winners but now runner ups in Russia Premier League in 2015 & 2016, they have impressive facilities and some of the best players in world that I can learn from like John Obi Mikel. But all of that doesn't happen till next February. I will focus on helping Wellington Phoenix much as I can before I leave"

International

August 2016


Was picked in the New Zealand U23 team to go to Rio 2016 Olympics.
Only to see us having to play Spain, Mexico and Brazil.





I played in all games but did not help the team much as we were soundly beaten by Spain and Brazil. We managed to draw against Mexico but we are going home anyway.

Wellington Swan-song

International Update

In my fourth game for NZ I scored two goals!
Wasn't man of the match thou.



[HR][/HR]
Final Season at the Phoenix



Contract thing must be a bug as I agreed to move to Russia.



I had improved on from the last few seasons, scoring 1 and creating 4 assists while nabbing 2 man of matches. I had played my heart out for the team, hoping they will remember me for the ages.

The day before I left for Russia I got injured.



Phoenix did well, finishing 3rd in the table, only to go out in the elimination round again.

09th February 2017

As I celebrate my 18th birthday, I board the plane to Moscow for my Russia Adventure. Have I made it to the big time now?

Unfortunately I did not have the Russian Leagues loaded at the beginning of my save but they were loaded in time for the 2017-2018 Season. As a result of this David Burt played no games for CKSA Moscow till the new season.

[HR][/HR]

International Update

I actually got another injury(sports hernia-4 weeks) a month before the selection for the Confederations Cup 2017. I managed to get picked as I recovered in time. Only for NZ to serve up dross in the games. I had zero impact on the games at all. The only game I did not play in was the Iran one.

CSKA Moscow

CSKA Moscow


No press conference due to no manager at the club and little media interest in a unknown New Zealander

Thanks! Yep NZ could do with a kick as they are slipping down Rankings alot despite having quality players in the side. Was shocked to see CKSA Moscow make a move for him! The biggest issue is he might not get any game time now.

First appearance for CSKA Moscow off the bench in the 80th min for the Super Cup.



First Trophy of my Career!

I also made two appearances for the side off the bench in the Premier games.

1st September 2017

The manager told me I would be loaned out to the Russian First Division side Yenisey for rest of the season as my playing time has been limited to coming off the bench. Can't complain!

International News

New Zealand has qualified for Russia 2018 World Cup! We had Qatar in playoff qualifier and beat them 2-1 aggregate. I played in both legs and was average.





Not going to be an easy World Cup for the Kiwis eh?

[HR][/HR]
Yenisley

3rd in the league. Still can challenge for the title.





Injury Crisis at the moment, lucky for the manager its winter break. I often play in central midfield for Yenisley.



I have played 10 games so far, notching 2 up goals and 3 assists with 1 man of match. My match rating continues to improve each season. Still got half of the games to play for this season but very promising for me.





I have picked up Russian as a language.



My attributes continue to grow, I am more of a box to box midfielder now but can fill in attacking positions or defensive mid. My worst attribute is Crossing at 3 and has not improved since I started this save. Also I have continued to pick up appearances for NZ and will continue to do so due to lack of quality midfielders in NZ team. Hope to continue my form and stay injury free for the World Cup!​
