Been a while since I done one of these's so lets have a go with the FM 2011. I'm currently in mid September so, I'll have the OP as all the time up to then.

Suprise Change At Manchester City.


Reports heard that manager Roberto Mancini have been sacked by Manchester City board due to not getting a champions league place last season.

Manchester City Next Manager Odds.

Martin O'Neill 9/4
Stuart Peace 11/1
Keith Millen 50/1
Fabio Capello 100/1
New Manager To The Game 1000/1

Manchester City Accounce Grant Thame as manager.

Sorces telling me Robert Mancini have been the only one that made a gamble on Grant Thame to become the manager with betting £500 on him to become the new manager only cause Mancini stated that he was training a person to take over his role as manager if he got the sack and that person was Grant Thame so Roberto Mancini have got £500,000 to spend on anything.

Ex Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini gives his £500,000 to RSPCA, he wants to help look after animals so he have gave his word to RSPCA to help them in all means.

Grant Thame's Mass Backroom Clearout.

Grant Thame have said this, "As of there being no Roberto Mancini at the club, the board have told me to fire all the current backroom staff and bring in my own".

Mate, using that colour font is confusing and makes it hard for people to read. And you have clogged up so much information together, give it some structure :) take a look at myn for ideas.

Tried to get it the closest to the sky blue that can still be seen, but some people may have a better understanding of colours than others. I'll also knock a better layout, in a while after playing FM for about 1 hour, plus as I said, I'd get it to the point of the game I was at in one whole OP.

you signed too many unnecessary players and i can't believe you sold tevez. man city should be winning more games comfortably but nevertheless a very promising start to your story.

Transfer News For January

Out


Kelvin Etuhu (£1,200,000)

The Manager View

Overall a good 5 games since the last update, 2 wins, 1 Draw and 2 Defeats, 11th in the league is not a good position I hope the team will think the same thing and get some more points, I'm happy with getting Ruud Van Nistelrooy to sign for the club at the start of the January transfer window so I hope he will come in and help train and hopefully to score lots of goals for the club.

Not nearly a month but 5 games, 3 league, 1 europa league and 1 friendly. 3 wins from the 5 games with a defeat and a draw. I'll be happy when Ruud Van Nistelrooy comes into the club, he will bring great playing skills to the club and hopefully help the younger players. The league position is a bit of a drag with the board so what I'm only human, not a robot and do whatever the chairman ask me to do. Hopefully the new tactic that was use against Newcastle can power the club up the table.

Overall a good 6 games, league position still s***, but none the less it will get better, as the manager of the club I would want more from my players that why I've choosen to recall Roque Santa Cruz from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid to give the striker choice more open. I believe I can still be in the job by the end of the season. In January I will not be buying many players only Ruud Van Nistelrooy and a young goalkeeper to train up called Botond Antal.

A Manager View

A good lot of games since the last update, been busy in the transfer window with getting Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Kevin Kuranyi into the club to boost the strike force more, Michael Woods, Arsenio Valpoort and Botond Antal are into the club to train up, Michael Woods and Botond Antal to train up for selling on and with Arsenio Valpoort he is to train and stay at the club very talented. League position is still the main worry but with wins and defeats with most of the defeats coming from weaker teams in the premiership the club got to turn this around.
